Oh, how people would look at him in a different light after this. Truth be told, Daehyun never saw himself as a pet guy. Why in the world would he want to get a pesky little guy who would end up ruining his sleep? And it doesn’t help that he doesn’t stay at home that much either, the Niveis is out 98% of the time. Either he’s working or he’s working. So why is he actually staring at his laptop screen while browsing for cats? There were plenty of cats on the adoption page and as tempted as he is to get one after that whole pet conversation he had, he wasn’t all that enthusiastic about it either. “You’re not getting a cat, Dae” he told himself and ended up closing the laptop before heading off to the kitchen to get himself a glass of water. Would it be so bad if he wanted one though? Surely, it wouldn’t be a bad addition to his life? Surely, it’s not going to impact him negatively, right? 

The thought of having a fluff ball in his life was beginning to give him doubts, his head was practically swirling with ridiculous scenarios where his life is ruined because of a cat. It was enough to send shivers down his spine. The moment he opened his fridge, he realized he hasn’t been restocking the beverages all that well because there wasn’t even a soju or beer in sight. This is why you don’t leave Mirae to do the grocery shopping, he grumbled internally and decided to do it himself as he threw on his windbreaker before heading out. Thankfully, there was a small convenience store just across the apartment complex, so he was able to browse the beverage section without any hassle, especially when most people don’t often venture there. 

The Niveis placed a few beverages ranging from beer, coffee, soda, and even a bottle of red wine in the cart before proceeding to pay for it. While he was busy humming a track to himself as he walked down the dark alley, he noticed something white trailing him. At first, he had dismissed it but it kept following him until he reached the end of the street and was about to cross the road to get back to his place. Standing and nuzzling against his left leg was a comparatively cute white cat who seemed like it wasn’t about to leave him alone. Dae tried to shoo it away but when it literally ran towards him after he crossed despite the traffic, he swore he felt like his heart was about to fall in worry. “That was fucking dangerous...you piece of fluff.” 

With every step he took, it didn’t even budge, it kept following him. If he took one step to the right, the cat would also take one step to the right. He even went as far to throw something to the opposite side before scampering for his life and took a seat at the bench in front of the complex, only to find the cat meowing next to him. “Right…you’re not going away, are you?” What could he say, this is a real emergency. So he dialed one of his emergency contacts; Aeryn. “You need to help me. It’s an emergency… something's following me” Daehyun being Daehyun didn’t even bother to give him the details and only told Aeryn to meet him in front of his residency.

It turns out that getting a puppy was a whole lot of work. Aeryn had spent almost all of his Saturday earlier a few weeks back at the shelter looking for his new companion to bring home, he had intended to bring home one of the older and trained dogs but the moment his eyes had set on the litter of husky puppies which had been given a foster mother dog. He had put himself on the list to get one and then earlier this week he had managed to finally pick him up.

Since then it had been constant messes and whining, waking up in the middle of the night to find a pair of blue eyes staring at him, arguments about whether he was allowed to stay on the bed, which ended up seeing the pup winning out and getting to claim his spot right by the pillow. He had been trying to teach him to sit with some success but he had learned very quickly that the little pup had a mind of his own and could be a true devil if you let him get away with it. He had taken some time to come up with a name for his new companion but in the end, he had chosen Zeus, which seemed to fit him pretty well.

Today though, Zeus’ newest victim was Aeryn’s shoes. He had headed out for about 20 minutes just to get some bits from the corner store and when he got back, he walked in to find the pup holding his sneakers in his mouth. 10 minutes of chasing him around the house and telling him to drop it later and Aeryn was exhausted, leaning against the couch and staring at the adorable little husky with an expression which could only be described as exasperation. He was cute though, so cute that he seemed to get away with anyway and Aeryn couldn’t even bring himself to scold him when he gave him those sad ‘I did something bad’ eyes.

Thankfully he was distracted by the sound of his phone going off, he picked up propping it between his ear and his shoulder while he listened to the sound of Dae on the end of the line, who started speaking before Aeryn even had the chance to say a word “Following you? What do you mean Dae?” but before he could get a word in edgeways the other male told him to come to his place as soon as possible. Aeryn looked at Zeus and then sighed, well there was no way in hell he was leaving him here to destroy more of his possessions so he supposed they were both going to check up on Daehyun. He slipped on the pup’s leash and then headed out the door, locking it behind them and then heading the familiar route towards where Daehyun lived.

The cat wouldn't leave him alone. No matter how many times he shooed it away and threw pebbles the opposite way, it wouldn't budge. It would still stay there, meowing cutely. It even came close to his leg and pressed its head against his thighs, purring in content. The sight of its white fur even prompted the Niveis to give into temptation, the next thing he knew, he already had one hand stroking its fur, "Well, you're one clean cat, aren't you? Someone knows how to take care of themself" he chuckled lightheartedly as he scratched behind its ear, only to receive more purring. "I can't keep you, you know... " Since the cat won't leave him alone, Dae dialed Aeryn earlier and told him to come over, using the word help. Admittedly, this is considered an emergency to him. An emergency means I need help, and for the Niveis, he needs help. Right now. Desperately. 

While waiting for the arrival of his Nephilim friend, he chewed his bottom lip and sighed heavily when the cat kept on nuzzling for affection, yeah its cute but Dae really needs to get back home. Okay, he really wants to get back home. The thought of having them cat scurrying after him even then makes him feel uneasy. What if the security notices how its presence was not wanted and throw it out? What would happen to the poor fluff then? Would it get hurt? Where would it go? "Are you hungry?" he asked softly and as if understanding what he was on about, the cat meowed. "I'll go buy you some food, okay? Stay here. I mean it. I'll be back." When he crossed the road again to go back to the store he was at earlier, he noticed the cat stayed put.

 Daehyun probably should've found another route now that the cat wasn't following him. That's what a smart person would do. But somehow, Dae couldn't leave it there, not when it was probably starving. He promised to bring food, didn't he? Don't break your promises, Dae, he reminded himself. By the time he returned to the bench with another plastic bag in his hand that was filled with a few wet food packets, he noticed Aeryn's familiar silhouette by the corner. With one packet in his right hand, the white cat quickly climbed up to him, the claws didn't bother him as much even though it was clinging onto him, "Hey! Wait for it... " he scolded and he swore he heard it mewled. "A little help here, please?"
