I walked over and sat on the bed, Smile sat next to me. I laid my head on his shoulder and grabbed his hand. Who would of thought my first boyfriend would be a dog that can turn into a human. It sounds weird, a nice weird. I guess that explains why I felt so connected when I first found him. I hear a knock at my door and I looked over at Smile, who quickly turned back into a dog. "(Name)? Are you awake?" I hear my dad ask. His voice sounded a little sad. "Yeah dad, I'm up." I answered. "Can I come in?" he asked "Sure." I replied.
He opened the door and walked in, there was a sad look on his face. He looked like he had been crying. "I got a call from the police this morning..." he began "a bus crashed into a semi truck last night, your mother was on it and...she didn't make it." he said walking over to me and sitting next to me on the bed. I felt tears rolling down my cheeks as he pulled me into a hug. It felt like forever when he finally said, "I have to go tell your aunt now, be a good girl while I'm gone, ok?" I nodded as a let me go and left the room, closing the door behind him. Right when he left I felt someone else pull me into their arms. I knew it was Smile. Once his arms were fully wrapped around me I started sobbing. "I'm sorry." he whispered and kissed my head. I just sat there sobbing for hours. The next thing I knew I could barely keep my eyes open, I was just so tired all of a sudden. After a failed attempt at fighting back I let sleep take over me.
I lay her down gently and pull the covers over her. She looked so beautiful when she slept. Even in my human form I still have advanced hearing and smell, so when I heard the window open and got a familiar sent I just looked over and saw a cat with a grin on its face. "Alice isn't here Cheshire cat." I said. "I'm not looking for Alice." he replied. "Hmmm, I can't seem to remember the last time you went human Smile." "What do you want Grinny?" He didn't answer. His eyes just trailed off to (Name). "You know, Zalgo's not gonna like this." he said. "So what? He's not the boss of me. Nor did he make me." "Alright, alright you've made your point. Its just that I don't think dating a human is such a good idea for you Smile." "You jealous?" "Please, I could get any girl I wanted. I just don't a dog and human go together like that. I mean imagine what your kids would look like." "I could say the same to you." "Very funny." "Seriously, what do want?" "I just wanted to see and old canine companion of mine." he said jumping on the window ledge. "Just watch out for Zalgo Smile, you know what he did to Jack. Imagine what he'd do to you." "Yeah but you forget, Jack kicked his ass." "Whatever." he said, and jumped out the window. Grinny and I might be friends, but he can get pretty annoying.
I look back at (Name), who was sound asleep. Losing her mother must be pretty heard for her. Even though her mother hate animals, family is family. I lay down next to her and wrap my arm around her waist. That warm feeling started filling me up again. If Zalgo is gonna try and kill her, then I can't let her out of my sight. Ever.
