Olivia's Subeta Stories
And then, Shields woke up.|
She lay there for a minute, blinking in the early morning sun that streamed through the window of the tiny apartment. "Today," she thought, "is going to be an absolutely beautiful day." As her vision cleared, she noticed a big white blob next to her head and immediately added, "with S'mores."
When the big white blob moved, however, Shields sat up startled, which woke up Fred, who slept next to her.
"Aww, a Blob Kitty!" said Shields happily, petting the little minion's head with her paw. "Where did you come from?"
"I've got one over here, too," said Fred. Across the room, Salenia and Nairu were also sitting up staring at a pair of the little blobs.
Nairu blinked several times. "What just happened??"
"We have four Blob Kitties," said Shields.
"Thank you. I mean, WHY do we have four Blob Kitties?"
Meanwhile, the creatures weren't content to stay and be stared at for long. They jumped off each of the beds and started playing together, as cats do, on the floor. They were very bizzarre-looking, almost like globs of half-dried glue. When they ran, they ran on little legs that seemed to shape themselves and then retract into said mass of glue. It was amazing that they didn't stick together. Shields approached them and tried to pick them all up at once, but they were simply too hyper.
"This is so strange!" said Shields. Blackwing Lair and George approached the pack of creatures with caution. George was running around amongst them soon enough, however, even though he was at least twice their size, and Blackwing Lair soon warmed up enough to laugh when they accidentally richocheted off of his nose.
"It's like they were waiting for us to wake up and notice them," said Shields.
"It's like an invasion of mice, only they're...cats," said Fred. "And instead of trying to hide and steal food, they're running around in the open stealing food" (for they had just learned how to crack open the refrigerator door).
Meanwhile, Nairu went out into the hall and knocked on the door across from them. Short little Clonie opened it. There, too, were four Blob Kitties.
"This is ridiculous," laughed Shields.
"You have them too?" Clonie asked, grinning brightly. Now there were eight Blob Kitties running between two rooms.
"Close one of the doors," suggested Loopy. "I don't feel like letting them into our neighbors' rooms by accident." And so everyone crammed into Shields's, Fred's, Nairu's, and Salenia's room. Before long was a knock on the door. I had decided to say hello that morning before class.
"Hey, where did all the Blob Kitties come from?" Professor asked me as she opened the door.
The sight ahead was quite interesting. Professor was obviously standing on the handle side of the door; on the other side was Shields, sitting on all fours, a Blob Kitty balanced right on her nose. She was looking cross-eyed at it and grinning. Fred, Claws, and Loopy sat in a row on one bed. Nairu and Salenia were casually lying on the bed across, and Clonie, unsurprisingly, was in the middle of the room bouncing around on all fours with seven Blob Kitties.
I burst out laughing. "Where did you get all those?!?" I asked.
"I don't know!" shouted Clonie, sounding out of breath. "They just showed up in the morning! There was this one chewing on my neck!"
"There was one sitting right next to my head," said Shields. "I woke up wondering why I had a giant marshmallow."
"There was one sitting on my face," said Loopy.
"They all just appeared," summarized Claws.
"Hmm," I said thoughtfully. "I didn't know they lived in packs."
"Can we keep them?" asked Professor, Clonie, Shields, and Fred at once.
"Do you actually want to keep them all?" I asked, looking around at everyone. To my surprise, no one, not even Nairu, complained, and I think every female in the room actually looked happy.
"It seems like they know how to get in here whether we like it or not," said Claws. "I'm guessing they came in through a hole in the wall or something and can pretty much fend for themselves..."
"Okay," I smiled. "I'll have to pay for them to be here because it would be a bad idea to try to keep anything here for free, but if you want to deal with it I'd be happy to oblige..." I smirked at my Subetans.
"We don't have to keep them if it's going to cost you too much..." Shields said. "We just thought it would be cool to have them around."
"Oh, that's no problem," I said quickly. "Don't worry about it. But you now have eight young, energetic, and presumably highly mobile Blob Kitties living with you. I think you're in for some...fun."
