Life In An Apocolyptic City ((Kitsune and ECLuver))


"Nova." Luna called to her small black cat, chuckling as the still young cat blinked at her lazily before bolting towards her. She barely got the food off the spoon and into the bowl before she was there, eating greedily. "Now, hurry up. We have a lot to do before dark." she told her, leaving her where she was to get her own breakfast ready. She was running low on supplies, mainly just food for herself. She still had nearly a hundred cans of cat food, the gift of a pet store not yet raided by the zombies she shared the city with at night.

Quattro wanders into the city, half stumbling from weariness. He'd finally managed to get out of the last town alive and wondered what this town held for him. He looked around and finally found a nice sunny spot to lay down and take a nap. He laid down in the middle of a large area of sunlight and felt the sun warm him. He sighs as he turns over and blinks in surprise to see a pretty small and pink flower sticking out of the ground in front of his face. He shakes his head and turns the other way but after a while of silence turns back saying,"I'll bring you with....so you can survive in a place like this." He then closes his eyes and let rest come to him for once in a long time.

Luna was out a plundering stores, flashlight in hand for the dark corners. Not like the zombies could really harm her anymore. Apparently, she was immune to their virus, but the bites still hurt. "Come on Nova! Keep up or I'll feed you to the dead guys!" she called to her cat, who followed her everywhere no matter how many times Luna told her to stay put. The small cat came dashing after her, causing Luna to chuckle as she loaded down an old shopping cart with the food that hadn't gone bad or been destroyed by zombies. She had dropped off her supplies at home before going back out to wander the city when she saw him from the top of a high rise building. At first she just passed it off as an allusion, or a dead body that had been unfortunate enough to get caught in the sun. But then she got curious, and headed down to ground level, calling out to it cautiously. "Hello?!?!"

Quattro jumps and quickly rolls to his feet, holding up his hands in a fighting position. Once he sees the girl he stands up and rubs his eyes to make sure it wasn't an illusion. But sure enough, standing there was a white haired girl with a black cat. He then slowly waves saying,"....hello." He scratches the back of his head and asks,"Who are you and where have you been?"

Luna was taken aback when he jumped up, inot a fighting stance no less. The excitement she felt nearly bubbled over as she approached him slowly. "You, you aren't dead?" she asked cautiously, stopping a few feet away from him as she studied him slowly. "Wow. I could have sworn I was alone here..." she murmered, seemingly amazed he was there.

He watches as she looks up to him and nods in agreement saying,"I've been to many towns, but never have I found one with another living soul." He shakes his head and closes his different colored eyes saying,"This is.......overwhelming." He sits down on the ground a bit heavily holding his head in his hands.

Luna laughed, the giggles bubbling up from her chest. She was sure she had gone crazy in the lonely city, and also thought he wasn't real. "Damn, I have quite an imagination." she giggled, fighting not to burst out laughing again. "SO what's your name? Dale, or maybe Phillip... I always liked the name Phillip." she said, taking a few steps forward and bending down over him. "Gosh, I must belong in a looney bin to conjure up something so lifelike."

He looks up at her like she really is crazy then sighs realizing it is hard to believe saying,"Yea you must be a figment of my imagination. AS IF there would be another alive I'm not that lucky." He then stands and looks at her and grins saying,"Well since you're not real then I guess I can do this." He then leans in and kisses Luna on the lips passionately. His eyes closed at first but snap open as he realizes that he could ACTUALLY feel her lips. He snaps to a straight up stand and blushes brightly only able to utter,"Uh....Uh...."

Luna groaned. "Damn, I'll have to go raid a drug store next. See what they have left for hallucinations..." she told him, "because you are one strange ass figment of my imaginat" His lips cut off her words, and her eyes never once closed, rather widened to a nearly impossilble size. When he pulled away, she blushed crimson as well, glancing away. "Well you certainly are real, and damn can you kiss..." she added the last part softly, glancing back up at him with a curious expression. "So, you survived?"

He continued to blush and barely picked up the last part of her sentence which caused him to blush deeper. He rubs the back of his his head and looks away from her at first saying,"Yea....I somehow did." He then looks back at her asking,"How have you survived all this time?" He glances over and checks to make sure the flower is all right and nods to himself as he sees that it was fine.

Luna smiled at his blush, his shyness starting to make her feel shy as well. "I did get bitten, but not much happened. I was sick for a day or two, and it bleached my hair out and turned my eyes red. But I never changed. I've been bitten two other times, but they only make me sick for a day or so, and then I'm back to normal." she explained, knowing it sounded crazy. It sounded crazy to her as well.

He looks at her, his blush finally fading as he nods and puts his hand on his chin saying,"Interesting, I don't know if I share that ability. I only know I'm immune to the airborn disease. Even though it turned my eyes a different color." He slightly puts a finger under each of them to show her. He then turns his head explaining,"I've just been moving from city to city, staying awake in the night and fighting them. Somehow I haven't been bitten but I don't really care if I do. If I die then I die."

Luna scowled at him. "How can you stay awake all night fighting them? Especially when you don't know how it will affect you? THat's just stupid." she added on the end for good measure, nodding herh ead once. "Really, you have to be a complete idiot to want to fight them, especially when one of the ones you kill could be your dearest friend, or a family member." Her voice wavered towards the end. She had no idea if her parents town had been hit by the virus, but hers ahd, and all of her friends lived nearby. SHe had gone looking for her closest friend, only to find her holed up in an abandoned office space, eating her own dog and snarling. "How can you stand to see them?"

Quattro listens and shrugs saying,"I don't know, I have a lot of energy and sometimes it's easier or harder depending on the weapons I find." He listens to her talking about her friends and he looks down sadly saying,"I think, that it's sad seeing them like that. But I also think, it's worse just letting them live the lives of mindless killers. I one don't care if I die, but I also have a sense of duty to put their miserable souls out of their misery." He looks up at her saying,"That's how I can stand to see them, is because I know that I'm the one that puts them out of their torment."

"But how do you know it's torment? Maybe they enjoy killing more than they enjoyed anything from their old lives? Maybe they want the chance to keep living, to find a cure and return to normal." she knew she was talking impossibles, but tears were pricking the back of her eyes. "What if they wouldn't hurt you, even though their like that? What if they stopped just before they did something, and you killed them anyways?" This was a subject sheh ad thought about a lot, and having someone else to talk to was making her spill her entire theory, or hope.

Quattro looks at her interestedly before he sighs saying,"Well I've never seen one stop attacking and I doubt they want to wait around to just jump some innocent like a mother or child or something." He then looks at her again before putting a comforting hand on her head saying," But if I did find one that wouldn't attack me then I wouldn't kill it ok?" He gives a small smile to try and ease her discomfort.

Luna nodded, FIghting off the tears that had sprung up behind her yees. "I'm sorry... I'm being stupid..." she muttered, wiping swiftly at her eyes before looking up at him with a beaming smile. It was as if she hadn't even been crying. "But, I could never forgive myself if I let you risk your life while you're here, so you should come and stay with me! My apartments completely blocked off from an attack, and I even have spotlights rigged in it for emergencies." she seemed hopeful, her eyes wide and pleading.

Quattro was about to refuse her offer but then saw the look in her eyes before sighing and answering,"Yea sure. I'll stay with ya. But I'm not sure how long I'm going to stay though." He then walks over to the flower and looks around, finding and empty cup he carefully digs up the soil around the flower and places it in the cup. He then holds the cup and turns to her saying,"Is there anything you need to grab before we head to your home. It will be dark out soon."

Luna beamed at him when he agreed. "perfect! I only have one bed though, so we'll have to share or we could find you some blankets... No I should be ok for the night, unless you'd like some stuff to sleep on. I'm sure we can find you a matress and some blankets that haven't been soiled..." she trailed off as she saw him dig up the flower. "It's pretty." she told him, motioning to the flower with a wave of her hand. Nova walked forward, sniffing his foot cautiously.

Quattro nods and shakes his head saying,"I've slept on nothing but rocks and glass before, wherever you want me to sleep would be fine." He looks at the flower and nods saying,"I decided it deserves a chance to live to so I'll protect it." He then looks down at the cat sniffing his foot and he asks,"This your cat?"

"Nova." was her only reply as she swiped up the cat just as her paws flew out, claws extended at his leg. "Sorry about that." she told him, clutching the now struggling cat to her chest. "I guess it would just be easier for you to sleep with me." realising her mistake, she blushed crimson. "I mean, since it's almost dark, and then it will be warmer, and I meant sleeping next to each other, not like..." she trailed off, realising hse was babbling again.

Quatto watches the cat interested until she swiped up the cat. He listens to her and grins with amusement and walks over to her placing a finger on her mouth to stop her saying,"I understand what your saying. And I will keep you warm tonight." He pulls back his hand and asks,"We should get going though, it's going to be dark soon."

Luna smiled tnetatively, still blushing and looking up at him through long lashes surprisingly dark compared to the rest of her hair. "Right, this way then. It's not to far, just a block or so." she told him, leading the woy to a nondescrepit brick building. "Well, this is it. third floor, second door on the left."

Quattro grins with amusement as he follows her, still holding the small flower. He looks at the building sceptically saying,"It holds up against the monsters?" He shrugs saying,"Well I guess if it's safe then it's fine."

"It doesn't exactly hold up against them..." she muttered, looking down. She had neglected to tell him a lot of her neighbors were zombies. The building was dark during the day, especially in the rooms, so some had taken up residence. But they never bothered with her apartment, since it was on the top floor at the end of the hallway. "Here, you'll need this." she told him, pulling two small flashlight out of her pocket and handing one to him before pressing forward into the building.

Quattro takes the flashlight and looks at it before stuffing it in his pocket. He followed her around with his hands in his pockets. He looks around and looks at the dark areas and finally understands what she meant. He tenses up but doesn't say anything until they reach her room.

Luna was surpirsed. She only had to flash three zombies on their way up, and they didn't even put up a fight when she did. She unlocked the door when she reached her room, letting him and Nova in before following and shutting the door. "Wow, you must be a good luck charm." she joked, tossing the flshlight onto a table as she made her way into the tiny kitchen. Their was a single chair in the living room, a big blue recliner that clashed horribly with the tan wallpaper and brown carpets. A short hallway held two doors, one on to the left and one to the right. "The left hand door is the bathroom if you need to use it." she told him, maneuvering around a stack of provisions piled lext to the counter. Nearly every avaliable space was packed with food, including the small kitchen table that was shoved off to one side in the dining room area. "It's kind of stuffed, so just set yourself wherever you can find a place to sit." she told him as she fished through the thankfulyl full sized refrigerator. "Drink?" she asked politely.

Quattro readied himself as he saw the zombies but continued to silently follow her. After they had entered her room. Once she walked away he asks,"Why didn't you change places to a more safe location." He walked up to her, his arms crossed and he had a no nonsense tone as he asked. He knew how she felt about him killing those things, and that's the only reason he didn't go out right now and start fighting.

Luna bit her lip and turned to face him, letting the fridge close behind her. The look on his face made her nervous to answer his question, but she gathered up her courage. "Well, this really is a safe location. Aside from the few dark corneres you have to avoid on the way up, I really don't get attacked up here. The zombies always go out into the city at night, and they never get this far upstairs." Her explanation she kenw was strange, and she debated adding her other reason before she continued on. "Also, I fight to live, but I almost hope that I'll get sick like them. So far, it hasn't worked." she told him truthfully, glancing down at the flor.

Quattro listens carefully and once she gives her full explination he sighs and turns away from her, stuffing his hands into his pockets saying,"I...I guess I know how you feel. I for a while didn't even want to fight but fear had it's grip on me and forced me to...." He pauses for a second then turns with a soft smile saying,"But then I realized that if I gave in that if someone else did survive like me that they'd be really lonely." He looks up with his different colored eyes and finishes by saying,"And to tell you the truth I'm glad that you can't get sick like them." He turns his gaze to her and gives a warm smile as well as a thumbs up.

Luna smiled sadly. SHe knew exactly how he felt, about all of it, but the part about someone else surviving shockedh er. "So... you actually believed, or hoped most likely, that someone else... survived?" she asked, chuckling softly at his thumbs up. "I'm kindof glad you came... I mean, I have Nova, but a cats not much for company." she told him truthfully, glancing down and blushing. "I'm glad your immune to the airborne virus to. Having osmeone else is... nice."

Quattro looks at her and nods saying,"I know what you mean, and after all hope was all I had that could keep me going. But now that I'm here I will help you survive as much as I can." He walks up to her and places a gentle hand on her shoulder and asks tentavely,"If that's ok with you."

"Of course!" her cry was loud and excited, but the rest of his sentence finalyl registerd. "Hey! I take care of myself fine thankyou." she told him indignantly, slapping his shoulder palyfully. "If anything I'll have to help you survive, since you seem to have a death wish. FIghting them... Jeeze! Why don't you just paint a target on your back?" she teased, trying to lighten the mood. The seriousness in his voice was... scary. Not bad scary, just nerve racking. It sent butterflies straight to her stomach.
