"Kitten, are you alright?" Kitten's mother, Kini, called through a crack in her bedroom door, "You haven't eaten anything since this morning, and it's getting late."
Kitten mumbled something unintelligable into her pillow and rolled further into the comfort of her bed.
In complete truth, she wasn't alright. She felt horrid.
Earlier that day Kitten had been in a good mood, though, she was posostively chipper. Why, you might ask? Well because today was going to be the best day of her pre-teen life, undoubtedly.
She had wished goodbye to her mother, father, and even her little baby brother, Andre.
She dashed out the door with a flick of her beautiful bushy tail and then she was gone.
Kitten bit her own tounge at the memory. Wincing in pain as she did so, but she deserved it right? Kitten deserved to be punished?
That's what she thought anyway.
When she had gotten to school she had still been happy, she'd been feeling butterflies galervanting in her stomache all morning.
She was about to find him.
The man of her dreams.
Or atleast, that's what she'd thought at the time.
Today was the day she had decided she would finally tell Cirian how she felt.
How she had felt for the past two years she had been attending this school.
From the moment she had set eyes on him.
"Kitten, please come out, you've been cooped up in your room all afternoon, it's not good for you!" Kitten scoffed at her mother's remark, not good for her?
Like that mattered anymore.
When school finally ended she dashed around to the back gate, the gate which Cirian went through to go home.
Her heart lept for a moment when she saw his face, before it plummeted back down with a crash.
"Kitten, sweetie, why won't you answer me?" Kini pestered again. "...It doesn't matter..." Kitten whispered. after a moments silence Kini began to speak again and Kitten cut her off with a scream. "IT DOESN'T MATTER ANYMORE."
After Kitten had seen Cirian that day, things still mattered.
It still mattered to her that her best friend, Kirimi had her lips pressed against those of her dream man's.
It still mattered that Kirimi had completely ignored the fact that it would crush her best friend's heart if she did what it was she was doing now.
What she HAD been doing for a while now.
But after what Kitten did what she did that day, nothing mattered anymore.
She was sure in her head that she deserved to be punished.
"Kitten... p-please calm down and come out now..."
But somehow she felt justified.
"K-KITTEN- WHY ARE YOU-"
No, she HAD been justified. Kirimi got what she deserved.
Kini saw her daughter turn around drearily as she got up out of bed.
Her legs got shaky and her heart started pounding.
"What's wrong... mother?"
"Kitten you're... you're covered in... in blood..."
