Chapter 1: Starting out
Korea whistled happily to himself as he walked down Japan’s driveway to his House, he couldn’t wait to see how his curse turned out on Japan. He knew his Brother China was mad about cats, and he also knew that he loved Japan but he never did anything about it so he did himself. And he felt proud of himself. A book under his arm titled “How to care for your cat.” He brought it as a joke. Sniggering to himself he let himself in Japan’s House, it was a talent of Korea’s he could easily slip inside someone’s House no matter how many times you lock the door or change the locks. “Japaaaan~” he called out in a sing songy way. But he heard no answer, shrugging he went inside. “Japan!” He called out again but still there was no answer, slightly worried he went into Japan’s bedroom to see if he was in there.
Upon entering he saw him; he was lying on the floor, completely naked a tail wound around his lower body and two soft cat ears that were black in colour poked out of his hair. “Japan!” Korea gasped throwing himself on the floor next to him, “Japan! Wake up!” he shook him. Japan’s eyes fluttered open he smiled at Korea cutely making him blush slightly, he noticed two delicate sharp incisors poked out.
“Nyan?” he uttered softly.
“Nyan?” Korea muttered “Oh shit! Can you speak?”
“Nyan!” Kiku got to his hands and knees and happily crawled out the room he pawed at the front door eagerly. “Nyuu! Nyan, nyuu!”
Korea sighed “What the Hell have I done? He thinks he’s a cat.” He muttered.
“NYUU!” Kiku mewed louder still pawing at the door “Nyan!”
“Okay I’m coming; you do know you’re nude right?” Korea asked.
Kiku tilted his head cutely “Nyan?”
“Never mind…” he sighed. “What do you want me to do?” he watched Kiku paw the door his hand patting the door handle. “You know you can open it yourself don’t you?” he opened it anyway.
Kiku dashed off into the garden, he closed his eyes purring contently as he peed in the garden, Korea groaned “Crap, I’m gonna have to call Aniki. I think he’ll know what to do.” He took out his cell to call China.
Korea paced Kiku’s room impatiently as he waited for China to arrive; silently to himself he knew he had to keep Japan away from Greece as much as possible. Jumping up he heard a knock on the door, Kiku dashed away with speed over to it. Korea eased open the door “Err…Aniki…don’t be mad at me please.” He begged.
“Let me in-aru.” China muttered his face a look of sheer anger “I want to see the damage.”
Korea let him in; Kiku jumped up China his tail swishing back and forth as he gazed up at the man. China blinked in shock as Kiku started to nudge his head against his stomach. “Err…so you see, he thinks he’s a cat.” Korea laughed nervously; he reached out and stroked Kiku behind the ears who purred happily.
“Why is he naked-aru?” China asked.
“I don’t really know.” Korea shrugged.
“Well why didn’t you dress him-aru?” China sighed, he knelt down in front of the kitten “Kiku?” he called softly getting his attention. Kiku opened his eyes looking at China. “Kiku I’m going to dress you but first I need to bathe you. Will you let me-aru?”
“Nyan!” Kiku nodded he bounded over to the door purring happily. China blushed and had the decency to look away from Kiku’s naked butt wiggling excitedly at the door. “Nyuu?” Kiku looked over his shoulder curiously.
“I-I’m coming-aru.” China stuttered, he opened the door and led the cat person over to the bathroom. He ran the bath; Kiku hissed at the water his ears going flat on his head. He spat at the bath angrily. “Oh no you don’t!” China launched himself on Kiku before he ran out the room. Kiku hissed scratching China with his claws that were his nails grown sharper and longer in length. But they seemed retractable like a normal cat’s. China would have been fascinated if he didn’t have blood dripping into his eye. “Stop it Kiku-aru!” he scolded.
Kiku hissed and spat again, his hand swiping out to scratch him once more. “Nyuu!” He mewed. China threw him in the bath, Kiku sat there rigid. He looked up at China pathetically, tears filling his large chocolate brown eyes.
China sighed “Do you want me to come in with you-aru?” he asked petting Kiku’s ears.
“Nyan!” Kiku mewed excitedly.
China stripped down and entered with him. Kiku purred nuzzling up to China “Nyan.” He mewed “Nyuu.”
Korea burst in “Aniki! I have this book! We can use it for Kiku!”
China sighed “He seems fine-aru.” He reached up for some shampoo to wash Kiku’s hair and ears; gently he wet Kiku’s hair making sure no water got into his eyes, mewing softly Kiku kept his eyes closed throughout the ordeal. China applied shampoo; he rubbed it into his hair smiling as he purred contently. “Okay then read the first page-aru.” China said rubbing behind Kiku’s ears.
“So you decided to get a cat.” Korea read out loud as he sat on the closed toilet seat “Congratulations. A cat can make a wonderful pet, they are loving and compassionate and often visit you if you are sick or upset. If a bond is strong they will often pick up on your feelings, when you are sad they will try to cheer you up.” Hey that sounds awesome huh?” Korea laughed.
“Shi, I guess.” China shrugged as he washed the suds off Kiku’s hair. Kiku mewed again nudging his head against China’s shoulder. “What do you want-aru?” he asked him curiously. Kiku looked around curiously his tail twitching. He leaned on the bath, his tongue sticking out slightly. “Kiku?” Kiku looked back at China “I’m going to wash you now-aru.” Mentally China tried to calm himself ‘It’s okay, it’s like when he was young that’s all-aru! It’s just bigger now that’s all. It’s still the same body-aru.’
“Nyuu.” Kiku mewed as China placed the now lathered sponge to his body “Nyan?” Kiku blinked as China blushed running it over his body. Kiku pawed at China’s chest as his own got lathered up with soap. “Nyuu, nyan nyuu.” He conversed happily.
China sighed not understanding a single word he was saying. “I hate you so much Korea.” He muttered.
“What?! I thought it would only, you know, make him have cat ears and a tail not the whole works! I didn’t think he would actually think he was a cat and lose all memory.” Korea protested.
“We don’t know that yet-aru.” China said. “Sorry!” He yelped as Kiku mewed loudly in shock at having his genitals cleaned unexpectedly. Kiku looked at him a look of curiosity on his face. China blushed at the cuteness of Kiku’s face. “Erm…I’m sorry.” He mumbled again. Kiku purred happily as he nuzzled into China once again.
Korea smirked “Wow you really find him cute huh?” he laughed.
“Oh sh-shut up.” China mumbled his cheeks flushing rapidly. “Y-you probably do too-aru.”
“Of course I do.” He laughed “I’d be an idiot not to.”
Kiku mewled reaching out for Korea “Nyan!” Korea stroked his ears “Nyuu!” Kiku purred happily.
Korea grinned “Awww look he likes me.”
China pouted “Yeah but he probably likes me more-aru.” He shook his head “Wait what am I saying?! He’s a person not a cat-aru!”
Kiku leaped out of the bath, he got to all fours and shook himself dry his hair sticking up at all ends. Korea laughed “He really is cute!” He grabbed a towel and started to rub his hair dry; Kiku purred his head butting into Korea’s stomach.
China got out the bath to dry himself off “Make sure you dry his tail too-aru.” He said his voice muffled by the towel on his head. Korea stuck his tongue out at him as he dried off Kiku’s tail.
“Nyan!” Kiku ran off excitedly.
“Gah! Stop him!” China yelped “He’s still naked-aru!”
Korea ran after him to see he was rolling around on his bed purring cutely “Aww.” He cooed “Don’t you look cute! I tell ya when you come back to your senses you are gonna be sooooo embarrassed!” He sniggered.
“Nyuu?” Kiku mewled curiously as he looked up at him from upside down.
Korea reached out and tickled Kiku’s tummy making him purr louder, China entered the room his face paled seeing Korea tickling Kiku’s tummy like he was an actual cat, “Stop that-aru!”
“Oh come on! Look at him and tell me that you don’t wanna do the same thing to him too.” Korea laughed.
China looked into the huge chocolate brown eyes “F-fine.” He blushed “I do.” He tickled his tummy making him stretch lazily and utter a loud mewl. “Are you tired-aru?” Kiku purred batting China’s hand playfully. He rolled onto his tummy pretending to snap at China’s hand as he held Korea’s tightly under both of his. His tail swished lazily as he mewled again.
China tickled him behind the ears, Kiku gave one last mewl and closed his eyes. China smiled “I think I should stay here with him tonight-aru.”
Korea pouted “Me too!”
“No! You go back to my house and make sure Hong Kong and Taiwan don’t find out about this! No one can-aru.” China said sternly.
“Fine.” Korea huffed but he did as he was told and went back to China’s Home.
China stroked Kiku’s ears as he pulled the covers over him; he went to settle on the floor in the guest bedroom. But sure enough he heard soft mewls and the padding of feet, looking up he saw Kiku walking up to him. “So you can walk-aru. Then all is not lost.” Kiku dropped down next to him a sad look on his face.
“Nyuu.” He mewled. He started pawing at China’s covers.
“You want to sleep with me-aru?” China asked him.
“NYUU!” Kiku mewled in excitement; he dived under the covers and curled up on China’s chest.
“Wǎn'ān.” He whispered stroking Kiku’s hair.
