Kitsune Pyrrha AU
Jaune, on the phone: Hey, am I talking to Blake Belladonna?
Blake: Yes, who is this?
Jaune: I’m Jaune, one of Ruby’s friends. She told me that you’re some sort of animal expert or something.
Blake: I’m studying to be a veterinarian.
Jaune: Yeah, that’s the word. Do you know anything about foxes?
Blake: Partially, what do you need to know?
Jaune: Well I found this red fox in the woods that had an injured paw, so I took it in to treat it but the thing refuses to eat anything I give it.
Blake: What are you feeding it?
Jaune: Cat food, I’ve read somewhere that foxes will actually eat that stuff. Although, the thing refuses to eat any of it. It actually looked somewhat offended when tried to feed it that. Is that unusual?
Blake: No, not really. It could be just that the fox just doesn’t like that particular brand of cat food. I would suggest getting a new brand or just feeding it actual meat, perhaps with some vegetables mixed in there too; foxes are omnivores.
Jaune: Really? Thought they were carnivores. Anything else that’ll might help?
Blake: Where is it?
Jaune: In my apartment’s living room. It was getting late and it fell asleep on a pillow. Why?
Blake: Send me a picture of it, different species of foxes are different from one of the other. It could help me figure out what to do with it.
Jaune, walking out of his bedroom: Alrighty then, I’ll send you a text once I-……….
Blake: Jaune? Hello?
*Jaune walks out of his room to find a redheaded woman with fox ears and a large tail in a yukata rummaging through his fridge*
Blake: Jaune? Hello?
Jaune:………..I’m…….I gotta call you back, something just came up. *Hangs up*
Woman, awkwardly: Uh………..I thought you were asleep.
Jaune: Nope, I was awake………..
Jaune: I’m calling the police now.
Woman: Wait wait wait! There’s a perfectly reasonable explanation for this!
Jaune: Really? Mind telling me why th- wait a minute.
*Jaune notices that one of the woman’s feet were bandaged*
Jaune, looking at her fox ears and bandaged foot:…………hold up! *Looks into his living room to find the fox missing*……..WAIT A FUCKING MINUTE!
Woman: Okay, just breath and relax, okay? Just breath and relax.
Jaune: A-are you….you…you…ARE YOU THE FOX?!
Jaune, stubbornly shaking his head: Nope! This isnt real! I’m not talking to a fox woman right now! Nope! I’m dreaming, this is a fever dream! Yep! A FEVER DREAM!
Woman: Uhm……..you’re not really dreaming, I-I’m sorry. Uh…….hello, I’m Pyrrha by the way.
Jaune, still shaking his head: No you aren’t! You’re not real! My brain made that name up just now! I’m going to wake and find the fox on that pillow over there and laugh all about this. Yep!……..any second now………just………any……..m-moment………n-now?
Pyrrha: I’m sorry, but this isn’t a dream. This is real. I’m a kitsune.
Jaune: Thats a made up word that my brain just made for this very moment in an attempt fool me to believe I’m awake, but I won’t get fooled so easily.
Pyrrha, putting a comforting hand on his shoulder: I assure you, this is real.
Jaune, looking at the hand with complete terror: I-I can actually feel this! I CAN ACTUALLY FEEL THIS! THIS IS REAL! VERY REAL!
Pyrrha, soothingly: Hey hey hey, what did I say about breathing? Take a deep breath, okay? Can you do that for me?
Jaune, taking a deep breath: O-okay, I think I’m calming down. *Takes another deep breath* I’m getting somewhat settled. *Takes another deep breath* The panic attack is dying inside me.
*Jaune looks her in the eyes before looking away with a small blush*
Jaune, swallowing: Uh…….what were you doing in my fridge?
Pyrrha: Huh? Oh, sorry about that. I was kinda hungry since I hadn’t eaten anything all day. The cat food you tried to give me smelt horrendous and I couldn’t stomach the thought of eating it.
Jaune: Wait, I see that you’re walking perfectly fine right now. Why didnt you just leave since your injury seems healed. Were you faking to be injured after a while?
Pyrrha, averting her eyes: Well……uh……I wouldnt say that……hehehe.
Jaune: If you could have left then why didn’t you? Especially after I tried to feed you cat food. I would imagine you would have wanted to leave after that.
Pyrrha, slightly blushing: Because I liked the………the way you petted me.
Jaune, slightly blushing: What?
Pyrrha: I-it’s just that you’re very gentle and comforting and…….I dont know, perhaps wanted you to……you know, continue petting me.
Jaune, blushing more: W-what?!
Pyrrha: I-I’m sorry if I made this weird.
