It gets easier after a while

Nathan slept. Something touched his cheek. He swatted at it and tried to remain asleep. It touched his cheek again and meowed. He grumbled and rolled over, pulling the blanket over his head. Weight settled on his back and paws began kneading the back of his head. Fearing for the integrity of his quilt, he woke enough to put Alice on the floor with a mumbled promise that he'd get her food in a minute. He tried to go back to sleep. Alice didn't believe him and jumped back on the bed to bat at his ear.

      • It does?Eden, Sun Mar 26 15:23
        Eden blinked. Oh. It was Professor Xavier, Teppenpaw Head of House. Well, that was promising, at least. As he indicated by the mention of being woken up by his cat (yay, kitty!), it was apparently... more
