Neko!AmericaXReader Cat Festival
...sigh.... Another lonely day in the life of ------------. You powered down your computer and decided to go for a walk outside. It was still winter, and the air was cold and crisp. You pulled on a jacket and set out. It was after dark, but the sky was clear and filled with stars. You felt something warm and furry brush against your leg. You looked down and saw a yellow and tan striped cat.
“Alfred!” you exclaimed with delight.
Alfred began to purr and rub against your leg. You ruffled his ears and petted him gently. Alfred was a semi-feral cat that belonged to one of your neighbors. They let him wander around the neighborhood. He was the friendliest cat you had ever seen and you always seemed to run into him when you went for walks.
You sat down on the sidewalk and Alfred curled up in your lap. As you petted him, you began to think out loud.
“Oh Alfred, I wish you were human because then you could be my boyfriend or something...” You immediately regretted that statement after you said it because you felt like you were beginning a slow descent into becoming a crazy cat lady. “Oh God! I feel so lonely! I’m such a loser!”
Alfred interrupted your existential despair-filled soliloquy with a sharp “maow!”
“Oh you think so too, don’t you? Well, never mind. I guess it’s pretty cold out tonight. I’ll let you sleep in my room tonight, Alfred.”
You woke up as golden sunlight began filling your room with morning light. You loved to wake up like this, all warm and golden. You sighed and turned over to get out of bed.
“WOWMAHGOD!!!!” you shouted.
There was a naked adolescent boy sleeping on the other side of the bed! Not only that, but he had golden cat ears and a long, sinuous tail. His wheat-blonde hair fell gently about his sleeping face. He was actually pretty cute.....WAIT! That is not the issue at hand here!
At the sound of your scream the boy woke up and turned to look at you with shocked, blue eyes.
“P-p-pervert!” you screamed.
“WHO ARE YOU AND WHAT ARE YOU DOING IN MY ROOM?!!”
“But you brought me here last night!”
“What? I never......Alfred?!!!”
“~nyann!” he meowed happily, showing his clean, white incisors.
“----------!” he said as he leaned forward and threw his arms around your waist.
“Wait, wait, wait. How did this happen?”
“Well, remember what you said last night about how you wished I was human so I could be your boyfriend?”
“Well, yesterday was the Cat Festival, and on the day of the Cat Festival we cats have the power to grant one wish from a human. So, you’re my favorite human and I always wished I could tell you how I felt. Your wish was the same as mine!”
Alfred tilted his head to the side and smiled winningly. You suddenly became aware of the fact that he was wearing nothing except for the sheets covering the lower half of his body.
“Uhh...Alfred we need to get you some clothes.”
You quietly stole into your brother’s room to grab a pair of pants and a t-shirt.
“Here,” you said, handing Alfred the clothes.
“Uhh....how do you put these on?”
After and extremely awkward lesson in human apparel, Alfred was finally dressed. The t-shirt clung tightly to his body and showed off his lean, muscular build. Alfred looked down at himself with amusement, then a disconcerted expression crossed his face.
“What’s the matter?”
“Uhh, my tail feels kinda uncomfortable in these pants...”
“I’m so sorry (brother’s name)”, you thought to yourself as you cut a hole in the pants for Alfred’s tail.
Alfred’s golden ears flicked and his tail swished back and forth as he regarded you with a smile.
“So how do I go about being your boyfriend?”
“Well, I guess we would do things together.”
“W-what? That’s going a little too fast...How about we make breakfast together and decide what to do after that.”
The two of you walked downstairs to your kitchen and began to prepare breakfast. You directed Alfred to start laying out strips of bacon on the griddle. When you turned back to look at him, you saw he was attempting to eat raw strips of meat.
“Hey! Humans don’t do that!”
“Oh,” Alfred looked crestfallen.
You ruffled his ears and said, “Here, we’ll cook it first.”
You sat on the carpet next to Alfred who lay languidly on his back.
You took a strip of bacon and fed it to him. He smiled happily and his blue eyes were shining. He put his head in your lap and you began to pet his soft, blonde hair. He suddenly sat up, put his arms around your neck and kissed you passionately. Alfred put his head on your shoulder and you thought that you could almost hear him purr.
