Location: My world.
“I can’t believe I’m doing this.” Alex shook his head, staring up at the tall metal fence that ran along the back of the grounds owned by Lord James Willard. He looked to Ollie and asked for the third time “What makes you so sure that he isn’t just going to shoot me?”
“If he didn’t like you he would have reported you by now,” Ollie shrugged.
“And that’s what this whole plan is based on?”
“Alex, we have discussed this, it’s the only way we can even come close to finding out about the prison.”
“But it isn’t like he’s just going to be all ‘ah yes here are the plans, here is the key to the front door, and hell why not even take some knock out gas with you for the guards!’” Alex frowned, his jaw set as he waited for a reply.
“That is why we make him trust you, look we know the boy practically hates his father, he has even been known to show a liking to nekos and when has Tom Cat ever been wrong?” Ollie asked.
“Just because he hasn’t doesn’t mean he cant be!”
“Alex just go.” Jade snapped, crouching he made a cup out of his interlocked hands, “Remember if you die at least Tux will be happy.”
Alex bit his lower lip, if I die, he thought to himself, like it would be much of a loss, he put his boot into Jades hands and gripped the metal fence. Jade gave him the boost he needed to get over the fence, he dropped down the other side and held his crouched position. As far as he knew there weren’t any alarm systems in operation because there were people home and awake. So getting to the house was easy, after all only four people lived there and one of those people were disabled.
The house was only two storeys tall, and the only light that was on at the back of the house was the one that came from the window in the roof, Luke’s bedroom. He really didn’t know how Tom Cat knew but the guy had a whole filing cabinet devoted to the residents of Lords Street. He supposed it was good to be in on things when living the life of a criminal.
Luke was sitting at his desk doodling in his sketch book. He hated being confined to the house but his father really was adamant that he be present for dinner. Luke rolled his eyes and added a nose to the guy he’d roughly sketched out, he thought for a moment then added in cat ears. Sighing he rubbed them out and leant back in his chair, looking up he could see through the window that had been fixed into his ceiling.
Luke yelped and fell backwards off of his chair, staring down at him was a boy with red wine eyes, a scruff of messy black hair, and cat ears. “Alex?” Luke hissed as he got to his feet. He looked up at the window and reached up to unlatch it.
Alex pulled it up like the hatch of a trap door and dropped into the room, Luke caught the window before it could crash against the frame and gently lowered it down, leaving the latch. He looked down at Alex as the neko looked up at him.
“What are you doing here?” he snapped, keeping his voice low.
Alex really hadn’t thought this far ahead, Ollie and Jade wanted him to get Luke on their side, how he was supposed to do that he did not know, “I… I was wondering why you didn’t report me.”
“What makes you think I won’t now?”
Alex swallowed but kept his head up “Because you aren’t that type of person.”
Luke frowned “You met me last night, I felt sorry for you so I didn’t report you, end.” He caught the nekos eyes and knew that Alex knew it was a lie; he brushed a hand over his recently flattened hair “Look I don’t know alright? It just didn’t seem like the right thing to do.”
Alex smiled, it surprised him how easily he managed to do it, and picked the chair , that Luke had fallen off of, up. “You should have seen your face when you saw me just then.”
Luke frowned “I could always chose to report you if you become too annoying.” Alex’s ears twitched up and Luke found himself thinking that it was slightly cute.
“You would give me time to become annoying?”
Luke was about to reply when his phone vibrated on his desk, he laughed when Alex jumped about half a foot into the air and gave a small squeak, the sort of sound only a neko could make. It instantly made Luke’s stomach clench as he remembered that Alex really shouldn’t be there. He picked his phone up and flicked it open to see the text from Tammy, he sighed and flicked it shut again then slipped it into his pocket.
“So why are you really here?” Luke asked.
Alex opened his mouth to answer then paused and bit his lip, he dropped his gaze “I need your help.” he admitted, his ears flattening against his hair.
“With what?” Admittedly that surprised him, the neko was asking for help, did he seriously believe Luke could help him? What could he possibly help him with? Alex looked away at the question and took a deep breath.
“My friend has been arrested…”
He trailed off when Luke cut across “That blonde girl? Honey isn’t it?”
Alex looked up at him then “Yeah, how…?”
“I saw you’re picture on the notice board and she was there too.” Luke shrugged, he didn’t want Alex thinking he had purposefully pried into his past, but he’d want to know how he knew about Honey.
Alex surprised Luke by nodding and carrying on with what he was saying before “We have to get her out.”
Luke’s bright green eyes widened “You want to break her out?” He shook his head “Why are you telling me that?”
“Because we can’t do it any other way.”
“Why me?” Luke bit his lip, he wanted to help, he really did. His mind had been on the neko boy all day. “I can’t help you, my father owns that prison and…” he paused, sudden realization, “That’s why you need Me.” so he wasn’t there to see Luke, he was there to see Lucien Willard.
“Luke, I need my friend back.”
The doorbell went and Luke knew that their guest had arrived for dinner he looked away from Alex “You better leave.” he said quietly, “Don’t worry I wont tell anyone that you were here.” He stood looking at the door, until Alex spoke from above him, he couldn’t stop himself from looking up at the tattered neko boy who now sat outside, legs dangling into the room.
“Luke, if you don’t want me to come back lock your window.” Alex said before swinging his legs outside and letting the window go, Luke leapt forward again and caught the window grumbling to himself as he lowered it down gently, he reached for the latch, then thought better of it and stepped back, still staring up at the window.
Don't worry, it only seems kinky the first time.
