Setting: Starting in the grand room, moving through the dining room and into the kitchen, back through the grand room...
Time: Middle of the night
Summary: Alphonse finds a kitty! Also ow.
Warnings: ...cat lover obsessing? And ow.
Alphonse had, unfortunately, discovered that everything he had heard about the nights and the monsters was very, very real.
His brother had wanted him to stick with him, and he had done so for the most part…hiding away with him mostly in the entrance room for the house, despite the sounds near by that were an unending source of fear for him – the breathing sounds in the closet, which he had discovered the source for, and had promptly started staying further from that closet. Those...things were incredibly disturbing for him, and he felt some kind of pull...as if they even had a further meaning to them. Just the thought of those things terrified him, and brought him close to tears.
And then there was the grand room – the room he needed to pass through to get to the kitchen or bathroom, if he wanted to eat or to relieve himself – two unfortunately basic and vital physical needs that he could hardly ignore for more than a few hours at most. The room where there was the frightening dark, and the frightening shadows and the constant feeling of being watched from those eyes - all giving him the same feelings he got from the closet…corpse-things.
The room Alphonse had to go through now; hunger being such an important thing to pay attention to as it was.
So that was why he was here, carefully creeping out of the entrance room, glancing around...trying to double check that everything was safe, at the time, before stepping out - planning on heading straight for the dining room, to cut into the kitchen - to just get some food and get back to his brother, where it was safe.
