Jace


Jace woke up with a yawn he had fallen asleep in his dog form on the spring mattress that just had a sheet on it. He yawned and looked around no one was in his room this time around. The"Home" as he knew it wasn't as crowded as it usually was during this time. Since Jace knew sometimes new strays could pop up at any time it wasn't uncommon to find a new roommate early in morning. However, no one was there just him all alone in his mostly empty room. This is the way he liked it for the most part since it was peace and quiet.

Jace got up from his bed and transformed into his human dog form to take a shower. When he was in this form he especially love to take a nice warm shower. This helped soothed his ache muscles and calmed his buzzing head of his memories. Dark memories of his past of him killing other dogs and none stop dog fighting. He walked to his bathroom and turned on the water. The steam began to fill up the tiny bathroom as Jace undressed for a shower. As the warm water hit Jace he sighed with relief as he began to wash himself with his usual "Forest Green Flea Remover for Dogs."

For the most part he knew he didn't have fleas, but still why take that risk. Jace especially made sure to scrub his tail since his fluffy tail usually was under attack by the pesky parasites. After his good long shower, he then brushed his tail to avoid mats in his tail fur. That was usually the only part of his fur that he would brush other wise Jace would let it air dry. He then began to get dressed he put on his usual human clothes a pair of medium wash jeans, a plain black t-shirt that covered his many scars across his body from dog fights and his owner. Then his shoes that were some old tennis that he found and finally his black patch around his right eye since it was no longer existent. He then head down stairs to see who was up and if breakfast was available.


Moss


Moss woke up with cat like grace and a small yawn. The young cat lifted himself from his bright red covers that he had slept under. His bright green hazel eyes looked around to see no one was there. "Awww!" Moss complained. "No one is here today with me." His ears flatten sadly and his tail was low. Usually Moss would find someone new in his room and an opportunity to meet with someone new. It didn't take long for him to bounce back to his usual happy self though.

He got up quickly and took a shower. Not one of his favorite thing to do, but he had to since his human-cat form produced an odor that most humans found offensive. The shower didn't take long at all as Moss wanted to hurry up and head down stairs. He maybe able to find someone to play with or a new place to go exploring in the garden. After a ten minute shower he dried himself and brushed his tail and hair a process that took a bit longer since he enjoy grooming himself.

Once Moss completed this ritual he got dressed. Pulling out a bright red magenta shirt that was a little to big for his small frame. Since this was the only shirt that fit him decently, he then put on some light blue shorts and his brown sandals. Moss then raced down stairs into the lobby and then raced to the kitchen. He began to dart all over the place saying good morning to everyone, but failed to hear the response if they did respond. After all Moss was overly energetic as usual.

Cody Turner woke up slowly on the 3rd floor of the Home and sighed and smiled after yawning slowly, stretching slowly in his black tank top, his cross that was around his neck jingling slowly, and he heard some noise downstairs and chuckled, getting his clothes on and heading downstairs and smiling as he saw Moss, and Jace, and went into the kitchen, and looked out of the kitchen to see Moss being crazy just as usual, he loved being here, he loved animals' and he had a home like the animals did now.


"What do you all want for breakfast?" he yelled out to them both with a kind tone to his voice.

Angel stared up at the sky as she strolled on her way to school, her bookbag resting against her behind, checker print skirt flapping against her thighs. Would they tease her again today?, she wondered, and sighed, closing her big green eyes. The people at school liked to tease her for any reason. For the way her sentances would fade out as a though infiltrated her mind, her obsession to piano, her tenderness and fragility. The bow in her hair flapped delicately in the breeze, and her crisp white shirt was nicely pressed beneath her blue sweater, though Angel much prefered shorts and t-shirts to the school uniform. Suddenly, a strange sight at the corner of her vision caught her eye, and she turned to stare, curious.

Moss ran over to where Cody was almost bumping into Jace who was barely making his way to the kitchen. "Fish!" He happily danced around Cody. Jace who almost plowed down by the overly enthusiastic cat walked over to Moss and picked him up by the back of his neck. "Can you chill for 5 minutes?" Jace growled out as Moss continued to dance even though he was lifted in the air. "Good morning Jace!" Moss exclaimed happily now realizing he was dangling in the air. "Jace can you put me down now! I've got much to do this morning." He exclaimed happily as he began to try wriggle free of Jace's grasps. Jace dropped Moss, but the hyper cat merely darted off once he touched the ground.

"That kid is so weird." Jace growled as he look to Cody who was a few feet away from him. "Just a few links of sausage for me Cody." He mumbled as he stepped out of the kitchen. Now Jace knew Cody a little bit being that he knew that Cody stayed on the third floor, but Jace could never get use to humans after all it took a lot of trust for him to get near them let alone use to them. He then moved to one of the nearby couches and laid there since it was quiet now with Moss gone.

Moss had ran outside forgetting to grab food instead he went to the garden to run around. The cat ran from place to place at large amount of speed. He was happy to be outside for a little while. Until he noticed something a hole in the trees of the garden. When Moss poked his head through the hole he noticed the fence. Pushing some of the brush away he notice that it was more than just a fence it was a little gate.

Now Moss knew he could easily just go out in the world through the front door, but that wouldn't be an adventure for him. He moved the brush more to the side and then pulled the old gate open. Once Moss stepped out of the gate and onto a street he notice the house wasn't there, but instead an abandon building. "Its like magic." He exclaimed as looked at the old gate which was still visible to him.

Cody just smiled as Moss danced around him happily, and laughed a little bit as Jace picked him up by the back of his neck, and he nodded his head to Jace and Moss and went back into the kitchen, to make the fish and sausage links, he sighed a little, he wished Jace would open up to him more, he wondered why he was so closed in, and didn't trust humans. Cody could see he didn't trust humans due to the way he treated Cody, but he didn't get mad at Jace for doing that, because everyone has their problems and maybe Jace would grow to trust him. For now he would do the little things to gain his trust, he finished the sausage links for Jace, and brought them out on a plate, and put them on a table in front of Jace, and smiled, "Here you go Jace" he said with a kind tone, and saw that Moss left, and scratched his head, "Huh, guess he doesn't want the fish then" he said with a laugh, going back into the kitchen.

Ali's eyes opened slowly at the sound of someone calling out mainly asking what people wanted for fodd. Food. Ali would love food at the moment he was hungry after sleeping for most of the week, he sat up and looked down at the living room. The living room was big and had loads of high places to cuddle up in as well as the fire being nice and warm of a night.

Leaping down off the bookcase he shifted into his human form pulling down his long sleeves he followed the smell of food, he didn't know what he wanted to eat perhaps some nice meat, or a nice price of fish.mlicking his lips he entered the kitchen and climbed on one of the stools perching on it he looked around still thinking of food.

'Must've been a trick of the light,' she reserved herself to thinking, but crept closer to the old gate. Why hadn't she ever payed attention to this old building before? She loved exploring. Slowly, she worked her bag over her head and let it slide to the ground, eyes darting around and taking in the unkempt gardens and overgrown ivy all around her. So what if she was late for school? There was something interesting going on here, and everything else could wait.

Cody heard someone else sit down on one of the stools in the kitchen, and he smiled, turning around slowly, and looked to see Ali, and he looked at him with a kind look, and got some of the fish he had cooked and prepared it and put it in front of him on the table in front of the stool, "Here you go Ali, tell me if you need anything else" he said with a kind tone and a sincere look.

Ali looked over to Cody giving a soft smile to him he broke up the flaky fish with a fork, giving it time to cool off. He looked down at his fingers giving them a quick wiggle he was still getting used to the fact that he could turn into a human whenever he wanted. If he thought about it before he came to the home he would have wanted anything more than to be a human so he could run away from everything, not in a cowardly way of course just because he could.

Scooping up some of the fish he ate slowly not really wanting to make himself sick again from overheating when he first arrived, so he was going to take his time on food yet he was still thinking that someone was going to take his food away from him. His eyes looked around the room his ears turning in all directions. He purred softly as he ate he did enjoy food a lot but it was scarce on the street but no longer he was safe now at least he was for the moment he wasn't even gong to step outside not with all the gangs and dangerous people lurking around. He curled his tail on his lap and held onto it protectively.

Cody looked over to Ali, seeing that he was being a little cautious about having the food, and he went over and stood by him for a second, "Don't worry Ali, i'm not going to take it away from you, you don't need to be afraid anymore, you are safe here, i promise" he said with a kind and sincere tone.

Ali shifted on his seat as Cody approached him, he gave a small defensive growl his ears folding back slightly his grip holding onto his plate tightly but once Cody explained that he wasnt going to take his food away from him. Ali relaxed and gave. Soft smile as he ate still looking around the room for anything, it would take him a while to feel really safe here but he had time.

Cody sighed after hearing him growl, but he knew that it was just a defensive growl so he backed up and walked into the living room sitting in a chair and reading a horror novel about werewolves, something he liked to do when he had nothing else to do, like when he was bored, so he put on his reading glasses so he could see better, he wondered where Moss went, but shrugged it off.

Blyss huddled in closer to Scarlet as she heard noise coming from all over. She didn't know where it was all coming from, but when she turned her head, she saw a human looking around. Tilting her head, she watched the girl put her bag down and step closer to the old gate. What's she looking at? she wondered. She looked at the gate herself, and saw a boy... only the boy had a tail and ears like an animal. What kind of human is that?
Scarlet saw the human the same time Blyss did. Protectively, she stepped over Blyss, even though the were hidden behind the bushes. You could never be too cautious with humans, she thought, pinning her ears back and letting out a small growl as she saw the girl put her bag down.

Battle walked into the kitchen stinking like alcohol, vomit and... A dead animal? She also had a half empty whiskey bottle in her hand. Her white shirt and dark blue jeans were torn in some places, and they had blood stains on them in some places. Her white hair was also tangled and knotted which would be terrible to brush out later. She of course looked like a drunk slacker. Wait! No, a slacker who has a hangover. Staggering over to the kitchen table, she sat down and her head fell onto to the table with a thump.

She heard a growl and stepped away from the bushes and gate and closer to the house, nervously. The closer she crept, the more it seemed the look of the property changed, and the less and less afraid she felt. She noticed a large, rundown home, and slowly approached it, creeping up the stairs and onto the porch, before resting a hand on the doorknob and pushing it open. "Hello?" she called into the house, before edging a foot inside, "Anyone home?"

Cody looked as Battle came into the kitchen, and he chuckled a little bit, and walked over to her with a concerned look, "Hey Battle, are you alright?" he asked with a kind tone, and heard the door open and went over to it and saw a woman come in the home, and he sighed, shaking his head, "Hi" he said with a kind tone, hoping she didn't tell anyone about this home.

Blyss and Scarlet watched the girl walk into the house, confused on why someone would step in the abandoned building in the first place. "It looks like it would collapse any minute," Scarlet thought with a frown-like expression on her furry face. Blyss just watched quietly, and kept staring at the building. She narrowed her hazel eyes as she saw the building... changing. How is that possible? Hesitantly, she took a few steps forward until she was out of the safety of the bush and her companion.

Battle answered Cody's qustion by raising her head and took a giant swig of whiskey. Making a thumping sound again by dropping it on the table, her ears flicked backwards as she heard Cody say something. Risking a glance upwards, which caused her head to ring, she saw humans. A growl started in her throat which quickly faded as she took another drink of Whiskey. After swallowing, she stiffened and was suddenly very aware of everything. Standing up so fast the chair tipped over. The whiskey fell out of her hands and shattered on the floor, but she ignored it and staggered out of the room.

More came. Not good. The thought came and went just as Battle ran into a tree, gripped the bark and vomitted beside the trunk of the tree. All she can think of now was the foul taste of puke mixed with beer. After awhile, she was able to stop and started heading away from the house.

"Oh, I...I'm sorry, I didn't mean to interrupt anything," she whispered, and a strand of hair squirreled its way down into her eyes. "I shouldn't have intruded." She glanced towards the kitchen, curiousity apparent across her face, but backed away anyway. 'Stupid!' she thought, 'It doesn't matter how worn down something looks, someone can always live there!' She quickly smoothed her hair back, and began to walk turn her bag, but something in that house still called to her. She bolted back, nudging open the door again, and stared at the boy wishfully.
"Is this...an animal shelter? It smells like animals in here," she gasped appolegetically, "not trying to be rude though!"

Moss heard a growl which picked up his ears. He looked around to not see anything his tail moved into a curious position. That's when he saw a cat it looked kind of skinny and was probably a stray. Moss noticed that the cat was in awe of the "Home" he then stepped forward turning into his cat form. "Hello there!" He meowed as his small grey cat form looked at the other cat happily with bright green eyes.



Jace took his breakfast and said nothing to Cody. He thought about maybe he could be a bit nicer to male human. It quickly slipped his mind after he began to eat. Jace always took his time when eating his food since it wasn't the food he was use too. This food was so much better it was clean and not spoiled he had taken a few bites out of the sausage when he heard movement in the front door. Not thinking much of it considering it was probably Moss being mischief, but still it made him a little uncomfortable.

Then a new smell entered the house one he didn't like a human this time a female. Now Jace knew nothing about female humans, but all the same he was very offensive. Quickly he put down his breakfast and walked to the edge of the kitchen entrance and growled loudly. This time taking his form as a big black dog with one eye missing and very muscular, but still very much then. Growling and showing off his sharp teeth.

Takuto

Takuto opened his eyes reluctantly. He got out of bed slowly, hopeful that he didn't disturb Kira. 'Phew... She didn't wake up..' He turned into his human form and put on a shirt. As Takuto was walking, he looked out a window and saw the outside world, where he and Kira used to live. 'At least we're together...' He went down to the kitchen and saw Cody, Moss, Ali, and Jace there already. "Morning everyone..."
He heard Jace growl, and saw a girl walk into the house. "Is this...an animal shelter? It smells like animals in here, not trying to be rude though!" She looked like a normal human girl, but Takuto didn't let his guard down. 'Geez, where's Kira?'

Kira

Kira was awake the whole time. Her eyes were closed but, she was definitely awake. She felt Takuto move as he got out of bed. When he left the room, it was quiet again. 'I should go downstairs with him.. He's still not used to everyone yet.' She got up and shook herself. Kira changed into her human form and put on a black dress that went to her knees. She walked down to the kitchen and also saw the others. "Morning everyone! It's so beautiful outside, right!" She went up to Takuto and hugged him affectionately. "Morning Takuto! I hope you slept well last night."
Kira looked around at everyone, then spotted the girl. "Is this...an animal shelter? It smells like animals in here, not trying to be rude though!" She looked at her thoughtfully, and thought, 'I guess this could be like an animal shelter....' She walked up to the girl and sniffed her, like the dog she was. "Hi! I'm Kira!"

Angel's gaze stay focused firmly on the black dog growling at her. She whimpered, and her eyes glistened as tears began to form.
"I-I-I-I'm sorry, I-I-I didn't mean t-t-to intrude! Please don't bite me, Mr Dog, I'm not going to hurt you, I promise!" she glanced at the girl sniffing her, Kira, before slowly slipping to the floor, cowering her head. She had read once that lowering yourself below an alpha dog would make it safer, he wouldn't see you as a threat to his leadership. As delicately as possible, she tilted her head forward, more strands of blonde falling into her face. She put her hand out, making sure not to look the large creature in the eyes.

Jace stopped growling as he saw this girl cowering. He never seen a human cower before and this was the first time. Taking notice of Kira who was new to him he notice how friendly she was to the new human. This made Jace let out a huff of a mix of a slight relief and curiosity as he back away from the human girl. Shaking his head as a bit of confusion, Jace took his human dog form once more. Glaring at the new human. "You're right for showing submissive to an alpha dog." He growled out as his eyes peered through her. "However, submissive behavior to an aggressive dog will only get yourself killed." Jace looked to Kira. "As for you, young pup you should be more wary of humans not all of them are kind."

She peered up, and nodded, suddenly mute. Where the dog had been now stood a man, an unexplainable switch. He resembled the dog in every way; stature, appearance, even his voice sounded like the dog's low growl.
"I...I'm sorry, I didn't mean to act to stupid..." she slowly slid her legs out and pushed herself off the ground, trembling.

Kira

Kira saw the girl cower to the floor. 'What's wrong with her?' She heard Jace growl at her, "As for you, young pup you should be more wary of humans not all of them are kind." She stepped away from the girl and lowered her ears. "I'm sorry...." She walked to her brother and hid behind him. "Takuto, Jace scares me..." Kira pulled her ears nervously. 'Jace is an alpha dog, but he's so scary!' Kira peered at the girl from behind Takuto. "Umm, who are you, and what are you doing here?"

Takuto

Takuto watched his sister sniff the girl and sighed. 'This girl never learns...' He saw the girl cower to the floor and Jace growl at Kira. "As for you, young pup you should be more wary of humans not all of them are kind." "I'm sorry...." Takuto clenched his fists, but he didn't say anything. "Takuto, Jace scares me..." He made Kira let go of her ears and held her hand. "it's okay, Kira. Don't be nervous now." 'He thinks he's the alpha dog... Right....' He felt Kira from behind him start to peer out again. "Umm, who are you, and what are you doing here?" Takuto looked at her with surprise and held her hand tighter. 'She's just a human. Like she has a purpose here! How did she even find this place..?'
