Monsters In My Head
(AU PETs again)
"Listen, you're drunk, you don't know what you're doing," I said, standing protectivly in front of my mistress as she shivered behind me, "BULL! She's my wife, you're my PET, you have no right to back talk me so just do what you're told!" the man hissed, slugging me in the jaw, I groaned as his claw scraped across my mouth and blood poured from the fresh wound, I had been taking this for the last couple of hours and I was in alot of pain, but still I wouldn't budge, "Get out of my way you stupid lion!" he shouted, grabbing an empty vodka bottle and bashing it over my head, I flinched but still did nothing, receiving multiple blows from my owner, the one that finally sent me down though was when I was kicked between the legs, that really hurt.. I doubled over and winced in pain, only to have a shard of broken glass from the vodka bottle shoved into my chest and dragged upwards, I gasped in pain and screamed when the tiger-man's hand dove for my throat, his claws digging in and tugging at my vocal chords, I can't really tell what was going on at this point, there was blood running down from my head into my eyes... and I was blacking out I guess... from the giant gashes from my neck and chest... but I caught the scent of my big brother, Grimmjow, there were words exchanged, but I could make none of it out, I suppose it was something along the lines of 'I'm taking my brother back' and 'I'll kill you', but as cruel a person Graando was to me and his wife, I did not wish death upon him, I wanted to speak up, to use the little energy I had to get Grimm to stop, but I couldn't, the last thing I heard was the muffled gargling sound of me choking on my blood, and my brother's nasty, pain-filled snarl...

"Ichigo! Ichigo!" I vaguely reckognized the voice calling me... but I couldn't force myself to get up... "Ichigo! Ichigo!" I heard again, still though I couldn't find the ability to move, all of a sudden I felt a sharp, stinging pain in my cheek and my eyes snapped wide open, a dark room... a warm bed... glowing purple eyes... I blinked, trying to re-adjust myself to my surroundings, "Ichigo," I watched her lips move in accordence with the sound of my name and I felt her small arms wrap around me, "Shhh.. shhh... it's ok, it's alright," I only noticed then that I was shaking violently, I clutched tightly onto my owner and burried my face in her chest, I felt guilty about this, I'm her PET, I'm supposed to hold her when she has nightmares and soothe her when she's scared, not the other way around, but the memories were so much that I couldn't bring myself to do anything about it, I just couldn't force myself away from her loving embrace

Later that night I had another nightmare, this one was about the first week I had been Rukia's PET...

Rukia had been so kind to me, the way most Owners started out, though things always started out that way.... it was always "Don't worry, you'll be happy here" or "This is a nice place, I'm sure you'll like it" or "I promise I'm diffrent" they never were, they always changed moments after I entered the house, it was like Dr. Jeckle and Mr. Hyde... but Rukia I felt... maybe she WAS diffrent... maybe a little... just the way she looked when she said "No, Brother! Let me keep him!" and "B-Brother. You said I could have any PET I wanted. Well; Ichigo is who I want." it made me believe that she WAS diffrent, if only for that moment, after Graando I sort of stopped believing anything anyone said but Rukia had some sort of.. honesty about her... innocence... maybe because she was so young or maybe because she was so... cute.... but she seemed honest to me, but despite my feelings that she was honest it was difficult to warm up to her, sure, I liked her, I liked her ALOT and I'm glad that I got to be around her... but there were times those first few weeks that I felt Deja Vu coming on.... like the third night I cooked dinner, she snuck up behind me, just as a joke, and startled me so badly that I dropped the wine bottle I was holding, I don't think my mind even processed the fact that I wasn't in the same, abbusive situation I had been in before, I think my body reacted before my mind could even process that I had dropped anything, without glancing at her face I darted out of the kitchen, up the stairs, and into my room as fast as my legs would carry me, I don't know why I thought I was safe in a locked room that she had the key to but I guess it was once again something I hadn't thought about, sure enough five minutes passed, then ten, then fifteen, and she finally nocked on the door, quietly calling me to come out, telling me I hadn't done anything wrong, even going so far as to tell me it was her fault for scaring me, I wasn't sure what to do with this odd situation, she was DEFINATLY diffrent than the others, no one before ever apologised for MY mistake and no one before actually allowed me to hold away in their room without even demanding that I leave, unsure of how to handel the new situation, I slowly opened the door and there she stood, smiling sympathetically at me and holding her hand out, "I cleaned it up," she said, "I got a new bottle," she said, after alot of hesitation I finally put my paw in her's, it was the begining of our trust, not long after that she was playing keep away with one of my favirote books, Romeo And Juliet...... Shakespere fan so shoot me..... she wasn't being mean or cruel with her teasing and I knew she was playing, we were having fun until I stepped on her foot by accedent and she about went through the roof from my heavy foot on her tiny one, I felt scared and uncertain about what she was going to do, I thought at the very very least she would yell at me, but she shocked me again by not even saying anything, she just hobbeled over to the kitchen table and jumped up with her good foot, "Check for a bruise?" she asked seriously and cutely, almost like she was still playing around with me, like nothing had happened and her mood hadn't been soured, my mouth fell open, to say she was leniant was putting it mildly.... or then again maybe I just haven't had a good run with people.... not far from then was the final incedent that made me question my trust in Rukia, she was having nightmares and in order to calm her down I got up and started rubbing her back, although when she woke up and found out I was sure I had crossed the line... she surprised me again by snuggling into my side and falling asleep with me, that was the night I resolved to trust Rukia, that Rukia was diffrent for sure, that I didn't need to be afraid of her...

But the nightmare was much diffrent, in the nightmare Rukia was worse than Graando and I was awoken again by Rukia that night who had heard my cries

My eyes shot open and I sat straight up in bed, noticing sadly that Rukia was gone and I was in her bed, I glanced at the clock and noticed that there was a note taped over the time, curiously, I yanked it off and read it to myself, 'Ichigo, you were up half the night having nightmares, please sleep as long as you want, I would have stayed with you this morning but I had a really important shoot to go to, but I'll be home ASAP, XOXOXO -Rukia P.S. I left some pain medicine on the table for you if you shoulder starts acting up' I blinked, noticing that my shoulder had burned when I reached to get the note, I wondered what happened to it... I didn't remember doing anything to it... but I took the medicine regardless, finding that it helped little

That day I was in a daze, too many thoughts were running rampid through my mind, thoughts about why my nightmares were surfacing now after all this time, feelings of guilt because Rukia isn't supposed to worry about me... I'm supposed to worry about her... and ofcourse my aching shoulder, I still don't know how that happened... I was so pre-occupised that I even spilled the drink I was pouring, something that I hadn't done in ages, the entire day was like that.... until Rukia came home....

"Hey Ichigo," she greeted, I grunted quietly in response, "How is your shoulder? Any better?" I shrugged, she tilted her head, lightly placing her paw on mine, "Are you alright? Is something wrong?" she asked, I glanced at her and shook my head slowly, "Oh don't give me that!" she said angerly, placing her hands on her hips, "I am very well aware that something is wrong now tell me," she demanded, my tail flicked out lightly and I grunted at her, turning back to the laundry, "You're confused huh?" she asked, even now it never ceases to amaze me how the smallest clues give me away to her, I turned to her and blinked, "You hit your shoulder on the bed post last night during one of your fits," she said quietly, running her fingers lightly over my aching shoulder and making my fur stand on end, "And as for your nightmares," she stopped her fingers once they landed on my arm and then gave me a light hug, "It's alright Ichigo, really it is, I don't mind helping you, in fact I rather like it, listen, don't try to bottle up your problums, let me help, ok?" I sighed once and looked down at her, she was sincere about this, so I nodded once and she smiled at me, her smile made me smile back, and I could go about the day normally again, content that Rukia would keep my nightmares away
From PETs AU from the minds of me and :icontyrackwolfii: she's addicted me to her little world :XD: This is about how Ichigo got his scars, :icontyrackwolfii: will be doing a companion peice, but I couldn't stand to just beat up Ichigo and let him wallow in it so a large part of the story goes about his mental and emotional scars and how Rukia is making them go away :) Oh and a good part of this was written by my partner in crime >D And the thing abotu Rukia's nightmares is here([link])

What defines you as a PET? Is it like a job or....? What?
Asagi-K-Kurosaki Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2011  Professional Writer
It's a job :) PETs are just a type of job, the two divisions are bodyguards, were you basically just serve as a live-in bodyguard, and then there are the maids, who are just live-in maids, then there's the division for both :)
