Somehow I started imagining Kitty Kuro because we don’t see him that much and then I came up with this nonsense. I hope you guys like it~
Kuro sleeps on Mahiru’s bed when Mahiru wants to sleep. He sleeps on the chair when Mahiru wants to sit down. He sleeps on the book Mahiru’s reading or the fresh laundry. Kuro knows exactly where to sleep to annoy his Eve the most.
Kuro is prone to walking over the keyboard whenever Mahiru is working on the computer. One time Mahiru didn’t notice because he was taking a short bathroom break and then he accidentally turned in an essay that had a random mess of letters added to the end of the last sentence. He’s been making a point of proofreading stuff twice ever since.
Sometimes Kuro tries to drink from a glass while in cat form and ends up knocking it over and creating a huge mess. And, of course, like every cat, he has this weird habit of pawing against a glass until it falls off the edge of the table. Mahiru tries to stop him but has yet to get any further than “Kuro NO-” before he has to clean up the mess.
Kuro’s favorite place to sleep on is Mahiru. No matter if it’s his feet, his lap, his shoulder or even his head, he just loves to curl up on his Eve and fall asleep in the weirdest positions ever. Of course, once he’s asleep, Mahiru’s not allowed to move because that would wake Kuro up and, as the vampire keeps saying, “You should never wake a sleeping cat.” So Mahiru can only sit there and feel his arms or legs fall asleep and wait until Kuro wakes up.
Kuro has chased and successfully pulled down the tablecloth thrice and the curtains once. Both are now out of use, but that won’t keep him from going after the blanket corners, scarves and shower curtains (unless they’re wet).
Kuro often licks Mahiru’s fingers, but at some point he usually gets bored of it and decides that he used up his amount of affection for the week and suddenly starts biting Mahiru’s hand out of nowhere. Mahiru knows it always ends this way but still lets Kuro lick his fingers because it tickles and feels nice, and seeing Kuro openly show this much affection is rare.
So, I seen a post by @rubyleaf by someone who said it was black cat appreciation day, and I read her headcanon, and I guess this popped up. So, this is for you Ruby! Your headcanon was so powerful, it made this! I really hope you like this!
“Mhm…G-good morning Kuro,” Mahiru yawned, slowly rising from his bed, and rubbed his eyes. Glancing to the side, Mahiru watched as Kuro slept on peacefully in his cat bad, not even hearing the Eve’s voice. Biting his cheek, Mahiru slowly got up, and tip toed to the calendar, getting ready to cross of yesterday’s date, when something caught his eye. In tiny writing on today’s date, it said it was Black Cat Appreciation Day. Blinking, Mahiru crossed of the date, and turned to look at the sleeping Kuro. “Black cat appreciation day huh?”
Smiling, Mahiru decided that maybe he should celebrate it with Kuro. Kuro and him have been through a lot, and the Eve thought that he should at least show how grateful he is for the Servamp being in his life, even though he is almost always lazy. Nodding, Mahiru turned around, and knew that this day was special, and that he wanted Kuro to feel special today. Smiling, Mahiru slowly walked over to the sleeping Servamp, and gently scratched him behind the ears, and under the neck. Kuro purred, and slowly lifted one tired eye to see Mahiru petting him gently. Which was new.
“Mahiru…” the cat yawned, slowly getting up, and purring more when Mahiru scratched under his chin again. Mahiru smiled at him, and slowly lifted the tired Servamp up. Kuro literally had no idea what was happening, but for some reason, having Mahiru paying attention to him like this felt pretty nice. “What’s wrong? Where we going?”
“Don’t worry Kuro,” Mahiru told him, pulling him more towards the warmth of his chest. Kuro closed his eyes, and pressed a cat ear to Mahiru’s chest, as listened to the soothing melody of his Eve’s heart. When Kuro slowly opened his eyes, he noticed they were in the living room, and Mahiru was still in his pajamas. “Today we’re just going to relax okay?”
When the Eve placed the cat down, Kuro transformed into his human form, and watched as Mahiru left towards the kitchen, and the sound of breakfast was being made. Blinking, Kuro glanced around, and thought. It wasn’t his birthday, nor Mahiru’s. There wasn’t any other special day, so why was he being treated so warmly? Sighing, Kuro ran a hand through his tangled bed hair, and groaned when his fingers got tangled in it. Pulling them out, Kuro yawned again, and slowly sat on the floor, reaching for the remote to turn on the television. When Mahiru came back in, he had two things of breakfast in his hand, and two glasses full of tea balanced on the plates. Placing them down carefully, Mahiru sat behind Kuro, and slowly moved the Servamp until his head was between his legs as they ate.
“Thanks for the food,” Kuro mumbled, taking a bite of the omelete Mahiru made. Surprisingly, when he took a bite, a huge blast of spices, and flavors exploded in his mouth, and a pleased moan left him. Mahiru chuckled when he heard that, but was happy that Kuro was enjoying the meal. Glancing back at the show, Mahiru watched it with the happily eating Servamp until it was over, and they were done eating. “That was good.”
Mahiru smiled, and gently took the plate, and glasses. Kuro watched as his Eve quickly ran back towards the kitchen, and after a few minutes, came back with a hair brush. Kuro furrowed his brow, but didn’t protest when the Eve took his original spot, and carefully started to brush all the knots and tangles out of his blue bedhead. Leaning back more, Kuro completely relaxed against Mahiru’s legs, and let out little hums, and slight purrs when the brush would gently brush against his head. Mahiru looked down at Kuro, and saw the Servamp’s eyes closed, and all his muscles completely relaxed. It was amusing to watch an all powerful vampire be turned to jelly just by brushing his hair. “There, done!” Mahiru happily said, when all the tangles were out of Kuro’s hair, and it looked decent. Kuro slowly sat up, and turned to look at Mahiru. The Eve smiled at him, and the Servamp felt a blush rise on his cheeks. Turning into a cat again, Kuro jumped on the couch, but was surprised when Mahiru picked him up, and set him on his lap. “You can sit here…I mean, if you want.”
Kuro shrugged as much as a cat could, and slowly relaxed his cat body against Mahiru’s stomach. Mahiru smiled down at him, as the Servamp’s eyes closed, and his tail gave a pleasant thump every few seconds. He never seen Kuro so relaxed before. Letting his hand gently go through Kuro’s black fur, Mahiru leaned back, and smiled softly when Kuro started to purr again. Opening his red eyes, Kuro glanced up at Mahiru, feeling the Eve’s pleasant mood shooting through their bond. Even though the Servamp was confused as hell, he didn’t complain about being pampered like he was.
“Mahiru…” the cat meowed, watching as the Eve glanced down at him, and paused his petting. Mahiru slowly lifted him up, and cuddled him to his chest. Kuro didn’t complain, and just let it happen. Pressing a gently kiss on his head, Mahiru pressed his face in Kuro’s fur, and took in the comforting scent. “What is today to make you act like this…not that I’m complaining.”
“Oh…I guess I forgot to tell you…” Mahiru whispered, still cuddling the Servamp to his chest. Kuro felt the Eve let out a soft sigh, as he pulled away slightly, and looked into his red eyes. Mahiru smiled gently, and pressed another kiss to his forehead. If Kuro was in his human form, he would be blushing all the way down to his neckline by now. “Today is black cat appreciation day, and well…I guess I wanted to show you how thankful I am for you being in my life, Kuro. So, thank you!”
Kuro felt his eyes widen slightly, but hid them when he pressed his head inside Mahiru’s neck, purring more when his Eve cuddled him closer, and stroked his back softly. He never knew the Eve could be this gentle, and he didn’t know how much the Eve cared about him. Feeling a smile appearing on his cat face, Kuro gave a slight kitten lick to Mahiru’s cheek, before pressing himself more into the Eve’s chest. Mahiru felt his eyes water when Kuro did that, so he buried his face more into the black fur, trying to let Kuro know how happy he was through their bond. But what he didn’t know, is that Kuro could feel it, and he was sending the same vibes as well.
