Ludwig woke up to an empty bed, which was unusual. He got up and got dressed. When he walked downstairs, he noticed it was empty to. The house was unusually quiet.
"Where is Feliciano?" he asked himself and went to Glibert's room. He knocked on the door, recieving silence.
"Gilbert?" he asked as he opened the door. His room was empty.
"What the hell..."
Just then the door downstairs slammed open. He sighed and walked downstairs again. When he got to the last step, he was greeted by a strong hug.
"Hey Feliciano," he said. He looked at Gilbert. "Didn't think to leave a note, stupid bastard."
"Don't blame me, Feli wanted to go for a walk! I figured you would get mad if I let him leave on his own so I went with him."
"Whatever. Let's make breakfast."
"We'll be back later, okay Feliciano? Don't answer the door."
"Okay. Have fun at work!"
After they left, Feliciano just sat there for a while. Even though he was part cat, he got lonely easily. He walked around for a bit, then went to Ludwig's room. He walked to the bed and laid down. He breathed in deeply, noticing the pillow smelled just like Ludwig. He smiled. He loved the way Ludwig smelled. He didn't know what it was, it was just a nice scent. He closed his eyes, just beginning to drift off when he heard a knock on the door. He got up and ran to the door.
He knew he wasn't suppose to answer it, and he wasn't going to. But when he looked through the peephole, he saw it was Kiku. He opened the door and hugged him.
"Ciao Kiku!" he said cheerfully. Kiku looked uncomfortable, but he didn't try to push him off.
"Feliciano please get off. You're in my personal space."
"Oh sorry!" Feliciano let go and smiled at him. "Ludwig and Gilbert are at work."
"Yes, I know. Ludwig stopped by my house and asked if I would come keep you company."
"Really? That's fantastic!" Feliciano said, resisting the urge to hug him again. They talked for a while, but soon a silence hung in the air, making Feliciano uncomfortable. He was about to ask something but Kiku beat him to it.
"Feliciano, do you know what happened to your brother?" Kiku asked. Feliciano shook his head and looked away sadly.
"He went to get food for us and he never came back."
"I see. Do you think someone took him in?"
"I-I hope so! I would hate to think that my brother is out on the streets by himself with no one to care for him while I'm being taken care of!" Feliciano cried, tears brimming the corner of his eyes. Kiku gave him a small smile.
"Don't cry Feliciano. Would you like to go look for him?"
"Si! Can we really go look for him Kiku?" Feliciano asked, his tail wagging happily.
"Sure. Come on."
When Ludwig returned later that day, Gilbert was already home from work. Kiku was still there, he was in the living room with Feliciano. Feliciano was sleeping, curled up in the rocking chair. Kiku looked at Ludwig and got up.
"Welcome home, Ludwig."
"Danke Kiku. I hope he wasn't too hard to take care of."
"He's a ball of energy. He's like a kitten." Kiku then got a serious face. "We found his brother."
"Really? Please tell me you didn't bring him here. The last thing we need is another neko."
"No, we didn't. We didn't even talk to him. He was with someone else."
The both looked at Feliciano as he stretched and looked at Ludwig sleepily. He smiled.
"Did you have a good day at work?"
"Yes. Did you have fun today?"
"Si! Kiku and me had lots of fun!" Feliciano said as he ran over to Ludwig and hugged him. Ludwig smiled and pat his head, earning a purr from him.
"Well I will take my leave. Sayonara."
After Kiku left Ludwig went to make dinner. Feliciano followed him like he always did. Ludwig smiled at him.
"Guess what Feliciano. I stopped by an Italian restaurant on my way home. They gave me a recipe for pasta," Ludwig said, noticing Feliciano's ears perked up at the word pasta.
"Ja. I'm going to try to make it."
When he finished making it, Ludwig served the pasta, which Gilbert just stared at.
"Eat up, Bruder." Ludwig said and Gilbert sighed. Feliciano was already eating his pasta, and he looked so happy.
"Is it good Feliciano?"
Ludwig sat down and started to eat as well.
