The name's Marla, I know, I know, not a very Japanese name especially for a Kitsune! Well that's people that know about my true form think I am... Fact of the matter is, I'm not a Kitsune at all! We're similar to our Japanese counterparts, but in no way related! In actuality, I am a spirit fox, and no, we're not the ones from native American folklore but we do come from North America. Ironically we don't typically live in America. Yup, you got it, we're really special Canadian foxes, Eh!? Well, anyway joking aside, I heard the reason we don't live in America is that Canada's got alot more isolated areas where we can hide out, and not have to worry about being found out! Either way, save the few brave souls that leave the protection of isolation, Canada is home! Anyway, as I was explaining, we have evolved the ability to assume human form, I don't know exactly how it happened, and I don't really know why we're called spirit foxes, we're not dead or anything! But that aside, this is the story, the story of how I met Connor, and how he changed my life...
*Chapter One: Marla*
It was cold... The coldest I've ever been in my life! I don't know how it happened, but in the midst of my hypothermic state I wondered onto his property... Well actually I broke into his house! That's a huge no-no, we can't afford to be arrested! Either way, I was there... I had just broken in... and you know what the first thing I did was? I assumed human form, stole some clothes (A nice warm Navy blue hoodie, some thermal pants... you get the picture!), helped myself to some Cheezies (Ok... I ate the whole bag!), and a cup of hot chocolate! Normally I wouldn't do this... but I was desperate! But man that cup of hot chocolate was what did me in! I was warm, comfy, and I had some food in my belly... Well you can probably guess what happens next... I fell asleep on his couch! I was fine until...
"Who the hell are you, and what are you doing in my house!?"
Oh crap, I fell asleep!
"I-I can explain, umm..."
"Are those my clothes!?"
"Y-Yes, I mean No!"
"Bullshit, I'm calling the cops!" *Smack*
*A bit dazed* "A lamp, seriously? It'll take a lot more than that to drop me! Wait, what the hell!?" (Connor is engulfed in flames and collapses, the flames stopping as suddenly as they started.)
Crap, I panicked! Please don't be dead! Oh, what do I do? I can't just leave him... somebody'll find him... or worse... he'll tell somebody about me!
*A few hours later* I can't believe I'm doing this! (As Marla passes her hand over Connor's wounds, they magically heal) There, I'm done... Now I should just leave before he... Crap too late!
*Chapter Two: Connor*
As I wake up the fist thing I see is that girl... my assailant, the one who hit me over the head with a lamp, lit me on fire, and healed me? Wait were those dog ears? Wait! Fire and dog ears... Or rather fox ears... Is she a Kitsune? No, impossible! Besides Kitsunes are from Japanese mythology, what would one be doing here? I guess I'll find out, one way or another!
*Pretending to still be dazed* "What the hell happened, and who are you?"
"I-I'm Marla... I'm sorry for breaking into your house... I was just so cold... and so desperate!"
"So you break into my house and attack me!? What's your problem!?"
"I-I said I was sorry!"
"You attacked me!"
"I know, and I wish that I hadn't, but I've got nowhere else to go!"
*Exasperated* "Fine, you can stay the night..."
"R-Really? Thank you!"
"Actually, on second thought, are you any good at cooking?"
"Yes, but what does that have to do with anything?"
"Well, if you're living on the street, I can hire you as a house maid... That way you have a job and have a place to stay! How's that sound?"
"Just say yes."
"O-Ok, I'll do it!"
"Great! You start tomorrow! But for tonight, let's get some rest. You can have the couch tonight, and don't even think about running away, I'm giving you a chance to redeem yourself, and if you run away I won't hesitate to report this incident!"
*The next morning* Ears and a tail, I knew it! She's not human!
"Hey Marla, wake up! It's 10:00 and it's time to get to work!"
*Groggy* "Who are you?"
"I'm the guy you attacked last night! Remember? I hired you to be a house maid out of good will... Now get up. You are gonna need to earn your keep!"
"By the way, the name's Connor. Just thought you should know, with you working for me and all."
"Nice to meet you Connor. Thank you for not turning me in... I guess I'll get to work now!"
