Xiumin: Xiumin is a dark grey color wolf who also goes by the name Minseok. XIumin was a homeless wolf before Kris took him into his pack where Xiumin became one of the strongest wolf in the pack. He is quiet, but when someone attacks his family he goes into killing mode. Xiumin loves playing soccer with Luhan. Feed him Baozi and he will love you forever.
Instantaneously, my eyes complain about the merciless sun. It is morning…I twist my body from left to right in search of Junmyeon. Instead, it’s the loving cat, who I yearned for, in my sleep, who waddles his way from the head of my bed to my lap. He licks his paw and tilts his head to gaze into my puffy eyes. It’s strange. Similarly, my heart grows sore under his presence as it normally does when I’m with Junmyeon. It’s so silly to say…I think I love them both.
“Welcome home, Suho…” my voice trembles as my precious cat throws his paws around my neck. As I stroke his back, he starts to weep this heart-clenching cry that summons rivers under my own eyes. “I’m so happy to have you back…”
“Meoooooooooow~” he wails. He’s been waiting for two decades to hear these words again.
Sniffling back tears, I lightly smack his bum and tease, “You, Big Baby…”
“Meoooooooow~~” he sobs out happy tears.
Chuckling, I pull him away to take a better look. Just like when he was a baby kitten, he sports a gorgeous white coat of fur that almost refracted Heaven’s light. Under the sun, certain angles create rainbow streaks. Even his pink nose is the same that it baffles me how long it took to recognize him. The prolonged fever, during my childhood took away my memories but the fever, produced by love, had brought it all back.
With a beaming grin, I bring his paws up to wipe his own eyes. “I love you, My Suho,” I sweetly say and lean in to kiss his nose. He returns the affections by licking my lips. My giggles cause all the cells in his small body to prance around. “Don’t run away anymore, okay?” I pout and hold out my pinky.
“Meow~” my cat wraps his paw around my finger and promises.
That’s when my vision lands on the shining gemstone band around my finger. “Heh…” a wide toothy grin spreads from ear to ear. “Junmyeon got me this,” I explain and hold it up to Suho. “Isn’t it pretty?”
“Meow,” Suho’s neck fur puffs up and he proudly holds his head up.
“I think I’m in love…” I shyly admit as I rock backward and lie back onto my bed. Habitually, Suho starts to knead my stomach but I bring him up to rest against my chest. “He’s kind of strange…in a way…” I softly giggle. “…but every time I’m with him, I feel so safe,” I daydream. “For a while, I just wanted a man to just…take my virginity…”
A low grumble croaks from Suho’s throat.
“…with Junmyeon, I want to make love…”
The sassy cat covers his burning cheeks with his paws and rolls into a shy ball.
“I love him,” I confess. Suho peeps his head out. Flexing my abs, I tilt my chin up to look at the cat. “I’m going to marry both of you!” I conclude. The surprise cat chokes and starts to hack out coughs. His body bounces up and down to the vibration of my tummy as I laugh. “What?” I chuckle and pet his head. “No one said a girl can’t have two husbands,” I joke. Extending my arm out, I take his old collar into my hands. I remove the name tag and bell and slip it through his new collar.
“There,” I marvel at the perfection. “Now, everyone will know you’re mine!”
“Meow ꒰⌗´͈ ᵕ ॣ`͈⌗꒱৩” His little paws play with the bell, causing the jingle to create sweet melodies into my ear.
“…and your lover can’t take you from me,” I finish my joke with an evil cackle.
Suho gives me an unimpressed look.
“Either way, vet called. After a second opinion, they recommend I get you neutered.”
“MEOWEIOIOWERWIRUOIWUROIUOIWRUO,” the cat thrashes around in opposition.
“What?” I giggle, “Silly Bean, it’ll help you live longer!”
It’s been a week…and then two. Junmyeon is nowhere to be seen. I searched the entire apartment in case the note he may have left got blown off somewhere by the wind. Nothing. Suho pounces around the room like the happy kitty he is. Though he doesn’t know what I’m trying to look for, his little paws try to mimic my ravage search. I can’t help but laugh.
With a defeated sigh, I slouch over the side of my bed. “I miss Junmyeon…” I admit.
“Meow Meow,” Suho tugs my sleeve as if saying, “Loook at meeee.”
“Heh, you Goofball,” I ruffle his fur and jolt up. “Time to go to the vet!” I announce.
“MEOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW!!!!!” my kitty squirms in my arms but I grip onto him tightly. “Don’t scratch me, Crazy Cat,” I quip. The memories of once causing me a fatal injury burns into his heart and he settles down.
“It’ll be done in around ten minutes,” the vet technician states and hands me forms to fill. They take Suho in for a quick examination.
“That silly cat…it’s not that big of a…”
The tip of my pen drags along paper as a sudden flicker of a scene replays in my mind. Blurry but defining, I recall Junmyeon lowering himself and me onto the bed. His cuddle is firm and warm against my feverish body as he whispered, “I love you…” into my ears. Then suddenly…the weight from his hold diminished and the blurry image of white fur settled in.
“How did you get in here?“
“I never left…”
Fish. Fish. Fish and chicken. Allergic to chocolate and tomatoes.
Old conversations bring themselves back to light. My eyes dart out and stare at nothing in particular as if I’m being hypnotized.
“I’ve never seen my father before and I was striped from my mother at 8 weeks…”
His tendency to show up out of nowhere and naked…
“He loves you so much more than you’ll ever know, that’s why he came back to find you even after all these years.”
My twin orbs grow glassy.
“He wants to stay by your side and protect you…”
I cup a hand over my mouth as an out-of-the-world analysis forms in my mind. JunMeow is Suho…and Junmyeon is JunMeow…which meant…Junmyeon is my beloved Suho. The circled words “Neuter/Spay” on the form against my lap, jeers back at me. With eyes widened into golfballs, I storm pass the front desk, ignore the shouting receptionist, and sprint into the back clinical rooms.
“SUHO!” I shout as I swing the doors. Panic drives my soul; if Suho gets neutered then Junmyeon…
I almost get an heart attack at the thought. On the third door, I discover a vet and a tech holding down the white cat. An empty syringe stares back to me; Suho’s head totters and his eyelids twitch.
“NO!” I bellow.
The professionals in the room stare at me with puzzlement. Without explaining myself, I grab my Suho and rock him in my arms.
“You guys didn’t do anything yet, right???” I question in a frenzy. Saliva drains from the kitty’s mouth as he refuses to fall asleep.
“We just gave him a dose of anesthetics. Don’t worry, Ma’am, the surgery will be completed really quickly,” the tech briefs and tries to take my cat from me.
“So you didn’t castrate— I mean neuter him yet, right?” Gibberish grumbles from Suho’s throat as I place his dangling head against my chest.
“Correct…but ma’am it’ll be qui—“
“No! I changed my mind!” I must have sounded like a crazy lady. “I’ll pay for the procedure but I’ll be taking my cat home now. I greatly apologize for the confusion.” With that, I bow and head out the door.
“Suho…Suho…my baby…I’m sorry…” I apologize as I try to awaken the cat. Shaking him wasn’t working and feeding him water wasn’t either. Passerby on the street stare at me as if I had just abused my cat. One even asked if I needed to call animal rescue.
It isn’t that I couldn’t wait it out, but the pain written on his face broke my heart. He must have been so scared, thus, to this moment, he’d rather drift in half-consciousness than to fall asleep.
“Honey, take a nap, okay? When you wake up, everything will be okay. I won’t get you neutered,” I stroke his head and coax but his head continues to totter around.
Flattening my lips, I head into a local gas station and purchase a large water bottle. I place the intoxicated cat against the cement ground of the parking lot and hold the water over his head. Gush of water splashes down, drenching Suho from head to toe.
“That should do the trick…” I proudly dust off my hands and prepare to dry the cat with my hoodie. But the scene before me seems straight out of the comic book. I’m so ridden in shock that I can’t even blink. Fluffy white fur rescinds back into the epidermis, stubby limbs lengthen, Junmyeon’s boyish features start to form… It’s the same scene I had witnessed that night I fell ill, just this time, everything is crystal clear. Cupping my hands over my gaping mouth, I lose my balance and fall backward from my squat.
Human voices from behind reawakens me. Gasping, I immediately rip off my hoodie and tie it around Junmyeon’s hips to cover his goods. A few slaps against his cheeks doesn’t seem to do much and I can’t bear to hit him anymore so instead, I lift him up and throw his arm over my shoulder.
“Junmyeon-ah…” I soothe. “Le-let’s go home…” I grunt.
Though, Junmyeon is quite skinny for a guy, he built still towers over my smaller frame. In addition, the fact that my lover’s almost bare body is being paraded in public makes me anxious. I stumble down the street carrying the drugged male. A groan evokes from the man’s throat and he thrashes around trying very hard to shake off the effects of the anesthetics to no avail. His slurred movement only causes the journey back home to be quite the struggle. Now, instead of a knocked out cat, I am hauling a full-grown, naked man.
“Is he okay? Do I need to call an ambulance?” someone passing by offers.
“No,” I quip. “He’s my husband; he just had too much to drink at his party…” I lie and nervously laugh.
“I think you’re sexy too!” Junmyeon suddenly shouts, lifts his arm, and smacks my bum. With widened eyes, I cover Junmyeon’s face and lower my head out of embarrassment. People on the street muffle back giggles. Some start to disperse after acknowledging that I didn’t kidnap this man and that I’m merely a tormented wife trying to carry her delirious husband back after his wild company party. “I want to make love to you too!” my said husband makes another public announcement.
“Junmyeon!” I hush as my face paints in beet red.
Someone whistles, “Get that pussy, Bro!”
Separating himself from me, he points in my direction and confesses, “I love her!”
“Junmyeon-ah!” I throw both of my arms around him and drag him off.
“I will protect her with my life! Don’t you bad people dare try to hurt her!” he innocently warbles.
By the time, I haul him up the stairs and get my way into the house, I’m completely depleted of battery. With one last grunt, I toss him onto the bed but my lack of balance causes me to topple over and land on top of him. I groan and try to get myself up but Junmyeon tosses his strong arms around me.
“Don’t…leave…” he begs in his sleep. I melt back against his chest. Thoughts rush through my mind. It feels as though I’m in some sci-fi movie. My brain questions his devotion but my heart acknowledges it.
“I won’t…” I promise and round my arms around his torso. For the first time, I don’t have any sensual desires as I lie with him on the same bed. Instead, my kiss against his dry lips is delicate and innocent.
