Within the Market


Deep in the one of the largest slave markets was the much prized 'Pet' section which boasted the most varied range of half creatures. Everything from the ever popular Neko and Inus to the more exotic Harpy type creatures and water dwellers could be found here. The more attractive and a creature was the more popular they were, this section was the owners prde and joy, at every oppertunity he would show it off to all of his aquaintances. It was here that the money was spent, they 'Pets' were well looked after and shown to potential buyers at peak condtion, nothing short of the best was tolerated here. Each pet had their own cage, their own food and water, they even had their own beds and clothes tailored to show them off to desired masters and misresses.



Jeannot curled tighter around himself as the guards did their final checks on the 'merchandise' for the night, making sure that all the cages were locked they also made sure that there was enough water for each of the inhabitants that were in the 'Pet' section of the market. Jeannot tried not to whimper too loudly, he could hear so many new noises around him and the sheer amount of smells that came with an untold amount of beings were driving him crazy

Shi sighed quietly as he sat in the corner of his cage. Is was one of the newer 'pets' to be brought to the market. He was being nurtured back to health after having a nasty master. He jumped at everything and was scared to be touched. He whimpered softly as one of the guards came near. One rubbed his ear, trying to calm the poor child. Sniffling, he wiped his eyes as the guards left. He hugged the blanket from his bed around his small body, looking around in the dark room. He could hear the splashing of the water dwellers, smell the inus and could see the figures in each cage. Looking down, Shi pulled the blanket tighter around him. His cage was the last in the neko section, next to Jeannot's cage. He whimpered as he heard another splash and the rustling of others getting ready to sleep. He feared the others, was scared that he would be hurt again and was worried that he would be bought by another cruel master. Most of all he was lonely. He had no friends and knew no one in the market.

Jeannot heard a little siffle come from the cage next to his, he knew that it was a newcomer, no one had been in that cage when he had arrived around a week ago, for which he was grateful, there wasn;t any other rabbits in the market, so he was in the oddities section next to the Nekos, it was bad enough that there was a Naga across form him that looked like he wanted to eat something rabbity, he certainly didn't need some scary cat thinking along the same lines.
But from the sounds of things and the way the guards had acted, it wasn;t something big and scary that would want to eat him in the cage, it was someone that was probably just as scared as he was.
Taing up his blanket and shifted a little closer to the bars that seperated their cages, sniffing cautiously as he did, he didn;t want to get too close only to find out that he had been wrong about the entire thing

Looking over at the cage next to his to see the creature moving closer to the bars next to his cage. He mewed frantically, much like a scared kitten and hid under the bed, the blanket wrapped tightly around his small body, covering the top of his head as well. His bright eyes glowed in the small light, reflecting pure fear and loneliness. His ears were down and he whimpered quietly as he rubbed the tip of his tail for comfort.

Jeannot froze when the neko moved under the bed. He began to inch a little closer to the bars, trying to thin of the song breeder had always played him when he got scared of new people, but all he could come up with was a few bars. Humming that small part of the sing he finally reached the bars between himself and the neko

Shi whimpered, scared that the person on the other side of the bars was going to hurt him. Hearing the soft humming he blinked. He lightly poked his head out from under the bed, only to his the top of his head on the corner of the frame. "Ow!" He mewed, grabbing his head before whimpering in pain. He rubbed his head, hoping to stop the pain as small tears filled his eyes. Sniffling he looked out at the person, his ears down. "W...w...who are.. you?" Shi finally managed, his voice shaking.

Jeannot winced in sympathy of the bang, he knew that hitting your head in the underside of the bed wasn't a fun activity "I, um, I'm Jeannot....are...are you ok?" He pulled his blanket tight around him at the growling snuffle of the Bear-child a few cages down as though the flimsy barrier would protect him

Whimpering Shi continued to rub the top of his head before hearing the bear child. He mewed with fear before managing to come out from under the bed completely. "I..I think so... It just hurt." He said softly before biting his lip. "Y...your not... going to.. eat me... are you?" He asked, his voice worried.

Jeannot's eyes widened at the mere thought of eating someone else, it was a repulsive notion, give him a nice plate of vegetables over meat any day. Shaking his head he tried to sound reassuring, though he wasn;t sure if he managed it all that well, he wasn't used to reassring others "No, no, no, I'm a r...rabbit, I can't eat um meat"

Shi relaxed instantly and managed a small smile. Moving over to the bars, his ears twitched. "That's good." He said, sitting in front of Jeannot. "I'm.. Shi." He said softly, his tail wrapping around his waist as he hugged the blanket around himself. "And don't worry, unlike other nekos... I only eat fish." He purred, hoping to comfort Jeannot so he wasn't afraid of him as well.

Jeannot wrinkled his nose, he didn't like the smell of fish, that being sai, he didnlt like the smell of most things. His ears perked up a little when he heard the purr, making them look like bunches coming out of his hair. He had never heard a purr before, it almost sounded like a growl, but defiantely not as menacing "Wha...whats that noise? You...aren't growling are you?"

Shi giggled softly as he watched his ears. "I like your ears, they are cute." He said softly before hearing his question. He shook his head. "No.. that's a purr." He said softly, his ears twitching slightly. Leaning forward, he purred a little louder so he would hear better. It was a low pitched rumbling that seemed light hearted and happy. Shi smiled slightly as his tail slid out from under his blanket to gently lay in his lap, thumping aimlessly. Sometimes it was as if his tail had a mind of it's own.

Jeannot blushed and watched the tail as he listened carefully at the purr, smiling when he decided he liked the sound "How do you....make a purr noise?" He settled down against the bars, they weren;t all that comfortable, but if he got his shoulder in one of the gaps he found he could lean against them without having the metal dig into his shoulder

Shi tilted his head softly to the side thinking about the question. "You know... I really don't know." He giggled cuddling up against the bars as well, managing to find a comfy position. "It just.. happens when I'm happy or content with something." he said softly. His ears twitched as he looked at him. "So... how long have you been here?" he asked quietly.

Jeannot hugged himself "A week" Bringing one of his ears forward, he started to stroke it as he gazed at the floor, remembering the time he had arrived here "Breeder went away...he left me a...alone. They...they said he... died and...and the others...they didn't want to....I was too much....they didn't like me. They said that they...that they d...don't like useless things...toys" Jeannot sniffed rather loudly, he didn't want to cry again, the others here had called him really mean things and said that he was weak, that he was no good "They sa...said that I was only...only g...good for...for...for nasty things....dirty things. Then...then I was bro...brought here and...and put in this cage...Breeder never put me in a...cage......I don't like it"

Shi listened, his ears drooping. Leaning for, he pressed against the bars as he slid his hand through them. "It's ok... " He said, his hand outstretched to him. "We can be friends.... I wont say nasty things to you.. promise." he said quietly, his ears twitching. Blushing, he managed to give him a small smile through the darkness. 'We can keep each other company and make sure the other is safe." he purred, trying to comfort and calm his new friend.

Jeannot looked at the hand for a second, taking it in his hand and holding tight "Thankyou.....I've never had a friend" Jeannot managed a slightly watery smiled. He let go of his new friends hand so that he could move next to sit next to Shi, glad that they could actually touch between the bars. Jeannot smile became a bit brighter when he felt the rumble of Shi's purr "You..you don't mind do you?"

Smiling, he shook his head as his tail slid through the bars, rubbing Jeannot's ears softly before letting it rest in his lap once more. "No, I've never had a friend either. I've never had anyone be nice to me before. Master.... used to hurt me if I didn't walk right or... if I didn't pur at the right time." Shi murmured. "He told me I was worthless all the time... and that if he had the chance... he'd kill me." Shi whimpered, his eyes looking out at Jeannot.

(How close are the cages?)

(I figured that there would only be bars seperating all the cages unless the occupants are dangerous)

Jeannot reached out and scratched gently at Shi's ear, for him it was enjoyable, so he figured it must be the same since ears were usually quite sensetive "It's scary....but we're safe here...the guards don't like people hurt..hurting us"

((ok, that's what I thought I just wanted to make sure))

Shi purred loudly his head gently rubbing against Jeannot's head. Smiling, he leaned forward and gently licked Jeannot's ear while his tail began to wrap around his waist. He loved having his ears rubbed. "I'm glad." He purred, leaning against the bars. "It's nice to have someone to talk to." He said happily before yawning. "It's not so scary when you are here Jeannot." He murmured.

Jeannot nodded, already half asleep " 'm not soooo " he yawned deeply, absently scratching Shi's ears, comforting himself now "not so scared neither"

Smiling, Shi gently pulled away, holding up a finger. He then proceeded to drag his bed over to the bars. He purred cuddling close to the bars. "Lets get some sleep Jeannot." He purred softly.

Jeannot woke up enough to do the same, realising that the floor wasn't the most comfy of places to sleep. Curling up in his bed he reached through the bars to take Shi's hand, having jus found someone he could trust he wasn't quite willing to let go and find that it wasn't "You...you don't mind me holding your hand...do you?"

Shi looked down at their hands and smiled. Scooting closer to the bars, his tail slid through them and gently rest over Jeannot's waist for added comfort. "No, not at all." He purred, holding his hand and squeezing it for a moment. He feared that the one person that he trusted would leave him in the night. "Good night Jeannot." He purred quietly, looking at him in the dark before snuggling as close as he could before closing his eyes. His hand held Jeannot's his purring quiet but never ending.

Jeannot woke up with a start, realising quickle that it was morning and there were two men standing in front of their cages watching them curiously. He automatically tightened his grip on Shi's hand and curled closer to him. He could here the men talking in low whispers and as usual they spoke as if thy weren;t in front of the people they were discussing

Shi yawned softly, snuggling closer as he felt Jeannot's hand tighten. Slowly opening his eyes he looked over at Jeannot. Seeing that he wasn't looking at him, he slowly turned, looking at the men. His ears flattened as he cuddled closer. "W..what's going on..." Shi murmured quietly as he laced his fingers with Jeannot's, tightening his grip softly.

"I don't know...th...they are talking about us" Jeannot felt really bad that he had woken Shi up, he hadn't intended for that to happen, the taller of the men turned round, Jeannot instantly reconised him as the Owner's assistant and knew that he didn't really care for the Pets, he saw them as inferior creatures "The man on the right....he's the owner's assistant...he's really nasty...he hates ev...everyone in the Pets section"

Shi's tail wrapped around Jeannot's waist as he whimpered softly. "D...do you think they are mad that we are friends?" Shi asked, his eyes looking at him. He didn't want to be seperated from his first and only friend. He cuddled closer to the bars, fearing his friend would be taken from him.

Jeannot huddled closer to Shi, slipping his other arm through the bars to stroke down his back "I really hope not" he watched the two men carefully, flinching when the Owner's assistant shouted at the guard "Fine! Give the animals what they want!" as he turned to leave he glared at Jeannot and Shi, stalking off he muttered about spoilt, filthy halflings that were more hastle than they were worth. Jeannot looked back at Shi "I don't think that we're in tr...trouble"

Shi whimpered softly, slipping his arms through the bars to hug Jeannot softly. He closed his eyes, flinching as the man yelled. He hated yelling. Looking out at the guard, his ears lowered while his tail wrapped around Jeannot's waist. "I... don't think so... either." He said quietly, looking to him, his eyes large and scared despite his words.

The guard have a sigh, turning to the two in the cages he tried to reassure them with a smile "Don't worry kids, you're not in trouble, if you manage to behave lke you are we might be giving you a shared cage ok?" He left then to write up a report on his take on the behaviour Jeannot and Shi had been displaying, hopefully the Owner would see it like he did rather than how the Assistant did.
Jeannot smiled brightly, sitting up he tugged on Shi's arm excitedly "Did you hear that? We aren't in toruble and we might even get a shared cage!"

Shi's eyes widdened, a smile growing across his face. "We can stay together! A shared cage!" He purred happily, hugging him through the bars. It would be great to have a friend that wasn't on the other side of bars. He purred happily, his ears twitching. "I'm so happy. Jeannot. We wont have to ever be alone." He purred happily. He was estatic and it showed. His ears twitched and he looked at Jeannot for the first time in real light. He smile, his tail flicking back and forth as he looked at him, his head tilting slightly as he took in his ears and tail.

Jeannot giggled at the antics of his friend, seeing how excited Shi was just made sharing a cage all that sweeter. Looking up he noticed Shi's odd expression, twisting around he examined himself "What is it? Oh no I...I'm not dirty...am I?" Jeannot nerously checked his ears to see of there was any dirt in the soft fur "Oh I hate being dirty, they...they make you take a bath...and the water...it makes my ears ache"

Shi giggled and shook his head. "No, Jeannot. It's ok. You're not dirty. I've just never seen a bunny that's all." He purred with a smile. "I only say you in the dark, not in the light." he said, hugging him through the bars. "I'm so happy you're here." He continued to purr, his tail swaying. "You're cute Jeannot. You're my best friend." He said, his child nature coming to a true peak. He was so happy to have a friend with him.

Jeannot smiled, petting Shi's hair, now they had the light he could see that Shi was a lot younger than he was, that little factor made him feel more mature than he ever had, he knew that even if things got really scary he would have to try and protect Shi "Thankyou Shi, I'm so glad that we were put next to each other. It really must have been fate"

Shi smiled, purring happily as he pet him. "I think so too Jeannot." He purred, looking up at him happily. His ears twitched softly as he softly rubbed Jeannot's ears. He stared at him through the bars, his smile never failing. Hearing one of the bear's he jumped, moving a little closer to the cage. He felt young compared to Jeannot but was glad to have someone older that cared for him like Jeannot did. It was as if he were an older brother. He was the happiest he had been in quite some time.
