"What the hell!?"
Feliciano's tail poofed out and he crawled into Ludwig's lap, clinging to him for dear life. Ludwig looked at Gilbert with what he hoped was a calm face.
"Hallo Gilbert. This is Feliciano. He's was living on the streets, so I decided to let him stay here." Ludwig said as Gilbert approached the scared neko. He reached out and tugged on one of Feliciano's ears, making him meow in pain.
"Holy... Ludwig, those are real!" Gilbert exclaimed, still tugging on his ears. Feliciano let out a low groan and smacked Gilbert's hand away.
"D-Don't pull them, it hurts!"
"Haha, he's fiesty! This might be fun!" Gilbert said as he grinned at Feliciano. Ludwig glared at his older brother.
"He's not a toy, Glibert. That means don't pull his ears or anything. Treat him kindly, he was an experiment."
"Ja, I know. I saw it on T.V." Gilbert replied as he walked to the kitchen. Feliciano still had a death grip on Ludwig and he had tears at the corner of his eyes. Ludwig wiped them away.
"Are you tired?" He asked, recieving a yawn and a nod from Feliciano. He got up slowly, putting Feliciano on his feet. He led the brown-haired boy to the guest bedroom, which would now be the neko's room. He opened the door and Feliciano ran over to the bed. He sat down and stared at Ludwig. Ludwig stared back. Neither said anything.
"Sleep with me."
Ludwig felt his face heat up.
"S-Sleep with you!?" Ludwig asked in disbelief. Feliciano nodded and smiled at Ludwig.
"I don't like sleeping by myself. And plus, it's warmer when someone's sleeping beside you," Feliciano said and Ludwig sighed.
Oh... That's what he meant, Ludwig thought.
"Nein. You need to get used to sleeping on your own," He said, watching as Feliciano's ears flatten to his head.
"Alright.... Good night."
When Ludwig woke up the next morning, a certain little neko was sleeping beside him. He just stared at the boy and sighed. He got up, took a shower and went to cook breakfast.
His brother stumbled down as soon as breakfast was finished. Feliciano was right behind him.
"What's for breakfast?"
"Chocolate and Kalte Plate," Ludwig said, noticing Feliciano's ears perk up at the word chocolate.
After they were done eating, Ludwig left Gilbert to do the dishes. He walked to the living room with Feliciano following him.
"Why were sleeping in my bed this morning?" He asked, noticing Feliciano's ears flatten. Feliciano looked down, his hands fiddling with the hem of his sleeves.
"I don't like sleeping alone."
Ludwig was about to say something, but there was a knock on the door. He walked to the door and opened it.
"Oh, hallo Kiku."
Feliciano peeked out the living room. Kiku noticed him and smiled. Ludwig let him in and Kiku walked over to Feliciano.
"Ciao," Feliciano said, tilting his head.
"Oh, sorry. My name is Kiku."
"Ciao Kiku." Feliciano said, smiling at the Japanese man. Kiku gave a bag to Ludwig.
"What are these?"
"Clothes. I figured he would need some," Kiku said, motioning to what Feliciano was wearing. Ludwig smiled and thanked him.
After talking for a good hour and a half, Kiku left. Then a true terror came for Feliciano. It was one of Gilbert's friends, a member of the Bad Touch Trio. He was a blonde, Frenchman, and his name was Francis.
"Gilbert! Where are you?" He asked as he walked in. He walked in the living room and saw Feliciano playing with a ball of yarn. He smiled and laughed.
"What have we here? He's quite cute."
"Oh hallo Francis. Don't touch him, he's Ludwig's boy-" Gilbert was cut off by a shoe hitting the back of his head.
"Don't spread such lies!" Ludwig yelled. Feliciano had already stopped playing with the yarn and was now staring at Francis.
"Ciao, I'm Feliciano."
"I'm Francis," he said as he kneeled in front of him. Feliciano stared at him and tilted his head.
"Oh my, how adorable! Hey, can I have him?"
"Nein!" Ludwig glared at Francis. "Both of you, go somewhere! I don't need you two scaring Feliciano!"
Of course the two didn't listen, and soon it became too much for the little neko.
