At the animal rescue centre a couple of years ago.
Mikoto’s friend, a volunteer at the animal rescue centre, sought his help to take some photos of the animals who were ready for adoption during the term break. And that was when Mikoto first met Kin who was a young cat then.
The centre has just managed to rescue the barely alive Kin from his owner after they received a tip off that the man has been abusing his cat. They were afraid that they might have to put Kin down as he suffered a hit on his head, some broken bones on his chest and fore limb. But Mikoto succeeded in convincing them to let him care for the kitten.
Since then, Mikoto visited Kin everyday and cared for him. Initially, Kin cowered in fear whenever Mikoto tried to approach him. But after some time, Kin started to accept his presence and finally even allowed Mikoto to hold him. Everyone in the centre was happy to see Kin’s steady recovery and trust in man again.
When Kin was finally out of danger, Mikoto took him home and the triplets adopted him and gave him the name “Kin [金]” because of his pale golden fur. And Kin is happy to find a home where he is loved and safe.
Mikado, woke up by Mikoto who has snuggled up beside him, asked “Bad dream?”
Mikoto: “En.” And they fell back into sleep.
Shortly, Mikado was awoken by a voice…
Sleepily, he opened his eyes and saw Mizuki standing by the bedside.
Mizuki: “Ni-chan, can I sleep with you?”
Mikado, smiled and reached out his hand towards Mizuki: “Come.”
Mizuki climbed into the bed, hugging Mikado, he fell back into sleep. Lying between the two sleeping brothers like they were used to when young, Mikado, feeling a bit squashed up, thought to himself: “Hmm…need to get a bigger bed…” and then felt into a slightly uncomfortable sleep.
