Feb. 12- Adopting a Pet
Together (Bonus points for including Kit!) - 1.5K
Kimmy’s sitting outside the pet shop,
fenced in with two other volunteers and about fifteen puppies when the 6’4 guy
with the Falconer’ cap comes up to her.
“Puppy for sale?” he asks, his accent thick. European, Kimmy guesses, but she’s
pretty bad at pinpointing these kinds of things. He’s pointing at the wriggling
ball of fur in her lap, gnawing at a plastic bone.
“Adoption,” Kimmy says, then cradles the puppy as she stands. “Would you like
to hold him?”
“Can I?” the man asks, sounding pleasantly surprised as he sets down his
“Sure,” Kimmy says. This particular puppy hasn’t really been catching the
attention of families throughout the day. He’s a little plain, Kimmy supposes,
and shy around strangers. “Just kind of hold him with two hands—there you go.”
The man is astonishingly gentle when she transfers the puppy to him, and the
dog looks comically small in his hands. The man’s eyes are twinkling, and he
holds the dog close to his chest, kissing it on the head very lightly as he murmurs in Russian.
“His name’s Kenny,” Kimmy says. “We found him in a box downtown, along with a
couple others. They’ve all had their shots, gotten fixed, microchipped, it’s
all included in the adoption fees.”
“His name Kenny?” the man grins, like there’s a joke behind that.
based off of conversations with @hellaghosts about a space boy

Edit: oH GOD I FORGOT TO MENTION those constellations on his face are the lil dip (cuz lol y not) and the lynx, named as such bc it is so faint you need to see as well as a lynx to make it out (represents josh’s attention to detail and foresight)
I always liked to hear her sing “Happiness hit her like a train on a track.” It suggests that happiness was always meant to be here. Maybe it’s delayed because the tracks need repairing or maybe it’s running late like all modes of transportation. But I know it’s coming, happiness, I can hear its rumbling motor chewing its way toward me. I can see the steady puff of smoke clouding the distant sky. Soon, it whispers quietly. I will be there soon.
