Crow butted up into the hand that was petting him, tail wagging slowly as he was content to be pet as he settled against Sama’s side. While the alien cleaned he scooted to lean against Merikh. He watched lazily as he cleaned before he jumped up and nodded.
"Like jerky," he commented, tail wagging as he trotted to the bedroom. He climbed onto the bed, curling against Merikh’s and Sama’s side. His thin frame pulled into a small circle as thin legs lightly pressed against his chest.
"Rude human gone?" he yawned and nuzzled his face against Merikh.
"I know you like jerky…you’re a good boy…staying safe in the bathroom like I asked when that bad man came." Sama’el praised, running a hand gently down the werewolf’s slender side.
Meanwhile, Merkih groomed the top of his head, large flat tongue moving in sweeps. “Yes. He’s gone forever. And if anyone else rude come back, we can chase them away together.”
It was quite clear both of them were trying to lull both themselves and Crow asleep. It had been one hell of a long day all around.
Crow didn’t believe the smile and he whined as he settled his head against his shoulder. He slowly curled his arms around his middle and nuzzled against him to try and comfort him. He watched Merikh for a moment, surprised by how big he had gotten, but soon relaxed again as he tilted his head up and licked against Sama’s jaw.
A quite chuckle exited the alien as he ruffled Crow’s hair with one hand, Merikh also climbing onto him to nuzzle and lick at his face. “Ok. Ok. Not all is lost. We still have each other.” He pressed their faces together and leaned in, all three noses touching. “As long as we’re all together, we’ll be all right. Forever.”
Merikh purred and nodded. “Yes. Forever.” He murmured, working silently and without much pomp and circumstance to stretch Sama and his lifespan to Crow as well, binding all three of their lives together, so none of them would die on the others, even if thousands of years passed. The magic, if it could be called that, was simple. Just a promise, a promise wound into the fabric of the universe itself.
After a moment, Sama’el stood, gathering all the ruined things into trash bags and piling them aside. Once all the trash was cleaned up, and a sign that read “Guard Wolf and Guard Jaguar on Duty” was on the door, he shut the fridge and patted Crow and Merikh. “C’mon…let’s go to bed, all of us….together. When we wake up, I’ll work on replacing everything and make us a nice lunch…it’s gonna be just jerky for breakfast though.” He led them both to the bed and climbed into it with them, cuddling both close to him.
Crow could understand that. People had been mean to him too. His ears twitched at the mention of Merikh being his size. Could he do that? His head lifted and he cocked his head to the side. He made sure that the nicer human was gone before he shifted into his more humanoid form. He slid away from Merikh as he took in the scent he smelled. He gave a nuzzle to the top of the cat’s head before carefully moving into the kitchen.
He whined when he saw Sama in a clear upset pose. He felt like this was his fault, partially afraid that he would yell at him or hurt him. He inched closer and settled beside him, hand coming forward to lightly touch him.
Sama sniffled and looked up, smiling lightly, a forced expression. “Hey. Don’t worry. I can clean it all. Go keep Merikh company, ok?” He tried to laugh it off and push himself up, but he couldn’t. His life was literally in pieces all over the floor. Everything was destroyed. Everything.
Merikh stretched on the couch, growing out to jaguar size. Like this he was actually a bit bigger than Crow in his wolf form, but not by too much. He hopped down and padded over to Sama, leaning into him. “I’m sorry.” He whispered softly.
The alien ruffled the cat’s fur and sighed. “He broke everything….there’s nothing I can save….it’s all gone.”
Crow let out a low rumble as he was licked, closing his eyes as he enjoyed the sensation. His ears twitched when the human spoke, peering at him carefully. He huffed as his words, not liking the sound of cage.
The petting was lulling him and keeping him calm. He was dozing off when he stopped. A low growl came from him in annoyance when he stopped petting, but just snuffed and pressed his nose into Merikh’s side.
Crow wasn’t going to get up and clean anyways. He was lazy and somewhat spoiled…well he felt like he was. Something ingrained in him over a long time. He whined softly at the thought, but closed his eyes to ignore the strange feeling.
Merikh snuggled into Crow and sighed. “Poor Sama.” He whispered. “He leaves for a little while and the house gets trashed. The guys here aren’t that nice to him.” He explained, squirming so he could groom and lick along Crow’s neck. “Maybe I should be your size, if I’m going to groom you? Would you like that?” He tilted his head and put a small paw on his nose. “We can be the same size. And then we can run about once it’s clean and play fight and I can groom you properly.”
In the kitchen, Sama’el slumped downward and buried his face in his hands.

His collar jingled as he yawned and shook his head.
Sama’el had to stop on his way home, spaded tail flicking lightly under his coat as he stood in the rain. A small black and tan puppy was yawning under a little awning nearby, and he chuckled, bending down and tilting the umbrella to provide some shelter from the storm. “Hey little guy. What are you doing out here on your own?” He asked, reaching out a hand. “Where’s your home?” Maybe the pup had tags or something. Even if he didn’t, Sama could take pictures once he got home and put up “found puppy” signs. After all, he didn’t want the pup to stay out in the rain.
Jack paused and remained seated as he watched Sama’el. He wagged his tail as he got to his feet and walked over to him, happily. He was glad someone finally stopped. He was abandoned for as long as he could remember. He playfully nipped at the male’s hand and then licked it. He smelt different than the humans that walked by and fed him scrapes. Maybe this one wasn’t human. Who cared?
Jack barked and wagged his tail again. When asked if he had a home, he tugged his tail in between his legs and whimpered a bit.
While the pup nibbled at one hand, Sama’el checked his collar for tags with the other. Seeing none he sighed and lifted the puppy up. “Aren’t you a cutie? Let’s see about getting you some food, huh little guy?” He chuckled, standing slowly and holding the pup safely against his chest, under his coat to keep him warm.
Oh the walk home, Sama couldn’t help wondering how Merikh would respond to the pup. Likely not well. He huffed, opening his door and taking the stairs up to his apartment.”Merikh. Behave yourself.” He called out in warning.
The cat lounged on the couch, grooming his groin. “I didn’t do nothin’.” He protested, glancing up after a while, then narrowing his blue eyes and hissing. “Is that a fucking dog?!”
(Obligatory Merikh spam.
Once again, Merikh’s face claim is Izzy, my cat.
The pale thing is a clear quartz crystal. Izzy is a pure black cat.)
(Face claim is Izzy, mun’s cat.)
