((I know I pressed enter like...every paragraph but this was a roleplay so it's pretty much separating it by who played the part. Anyways, I really hope you enjoy this. i didn't think It'd be as long as it is and I may have to separate it into chapters ))
Maria was a nurse at a mental institution. She wasn't sure why she chose such a job but her only excuse was she loved to help people and she needed the money. It took a while for everybody to get used to her cat ears and long fluffy white tail but she became one of the most loved and trusted members of the staff. Her position was to work with the patients in the sponge room. The rather 'special' patients. Hers was Oliver Kirkland. She wasn't sure why he was in there and nobody had the guts enough to tell her.
Oliver was waiting in the dumb, idiotic sponge room. He didn't know how long he had been in there, but he knew he had to get out. He was in a straight jacket and, though he had to struggle to get up, he managed. He went over to the door and growled lightly. "I need to use the restroom!!" He called and unknowing that somebody was already being sent to help him, he sighed. "Please...?"
His neko nurse, Maria Beilschmidt, entered the room soon after. "Hello, Oliver. How are we today?" She asked politely as she pulled out the portable toilet, undoing his jacket and turning around so she wouldn't see because he was completely nude under his jacket.
Oliver growled faintly, not answering her at first. After a while, he said "Well, I have to pee in a bucket and I wear a straight jacket with nothing to do...how are you?" He said sarcastically as he began to take care of business in the bucket a bit awkwardly.
"I'm a mutant cat chick with no scratching post at her work place. Just fine." She answered just as sarcastically, though she couldn't help but chuckle.
Oliver finished and pulled her to him, smirking darkly. "That's too bad...could I do anything to get it off your mind~?" He asked seductively.
Her eyes widened and she blushed a little. "P-please pull up your jacket so I can re-fasten it." She said with a slightly shaky voice.
He ignored her and kissed her cheek. "Nothing? All I have to do is strip your clothes. I'm already naked~" He purred, breathing down her neck still, causing her once again to shudder.
Her blush grew heavier. "C-cut that out! Sexual relations with patients is not allowed and you know that." She whimpered softly, nervous and scared.
Oliver put his hand on the zipper of her zip-down nurse dress and began tugging it down. "A one-time thing could be okay though, right?~" He smirked softly as he began kissing down her neck.
Maria whimpered, grabbing hold of his hand to try to stop him. "No it's n-not okay. You c-can't do this." She whined, scared as ever.
Oliver smirked a bit more. "Let me go and this won't happen~" he kissed her neck a bit more.
She was trapped. It would be against the law and get her fired no matter what she did. "I can't do that either. T-this isn't fair." She said, still trying to keep him from doing what she knew damn well he was trying to do.
Oliver pinned her against the wall and unzipped her dress. He thrust a bit against her. "How 'bout a good last day at work?" He asked with a seductive growl.
She whimpered softly, this being all she could do. Her ears lay flat against her head in fear. "Let me go~" She begged, trying not to fall apart.
Oliver glanced over his shoulder to see the door was open. "it was nice, but I'll have to catch you some other time. Have fun getting fired!~" He ran for the door and got stopped by two guards and fought as hard as he could.
She zipped up her dress and ran out of there, explaining in the best way she could what happened.
Oliver received a shot in his arm of some medicine and his body started trembling and shortly after, he tried to walk away but passed out.
She gasped and, though she didn't want to touch him, she caught him because she didn't want him to hit his head. She was so very caring. She then took him back into his room and fixed his jacket, leaving and going to the employee's lounge, trembling and sobbing about what had just happened, and what could have happened.
Oliver was passed out in his room. The employees knew she was coming as they waited for her arrival. One of the staff approached her and rested a hand on her shoulder. "Don't worry, you're not fired." He spoke softly.
"H-huh?" She glanced up at him, her ears perking. She was still shaking badly and kind of dizzy so she took a seat.
The employee sighed softly. "What he did was not your fault. We can pay for any damages or anything that happened..." He continued.
"N-no damages...I'm o-okay..." She trailed off and suddenly wondered how they knew about...that part. "How did you...?"
The fellow employee closed his eyes for a second and got a cup of water, handing it to her. "One of the others had walked into the camera room but it was too late by then."
Oliver was awake rather quickly in his jacket and he somehow gained access to a bobby pin and unlocked the jacket using his mouth. He acted like he still had it on and went to sit down. "I'll break out later..." he mumbled quietly as he stared at the camera.
Maria teared up a little in embarrassment. "I-I was so nice to him. Why would he do such a thing?" She asked, covering her face with her tail.
The other bent down and wiped her tears away as he saw them. "He is a very bad person. We will sign you up for a different patient." He said gently to her.
She sighed, her breath coming out shaky. "O-okay. Thank you." She whimpered, trying not to break down.
He smiled faintly and nodded. "I really am sorry about this. I can sign you up with a new patient right now." He continued and went to the system computer.
Oliver saw that the camera stopped moving, being left unattended now in the madness, as he took off the jacket and started unlocking the door.
She lay down on the seat, sobbing softly. It was best to let it out now before it tortured her and tore her up inside for the rest of the day.
The employee sighed lightly and began signing her up in the computer. Eventually, he finished and gave her a sheet of paper with the room number on it.
Oliver broke out and ran for the exit, being as stealthy as he could.
She took the paper and glanced it over before looking at the employee, tears in her eyes and streaming down her face. "Thank you..." She trailed off, her voice just above a whisper. She then thought of something. "W-who's watching the cameras...?"
The employee's eyes widened. "Oh gosh I don't know..." He trailed off in a panic and went to alert somebody of this. But it was too late. Oliver got away and wasn't heard of again.
Another employee approached Maria. This one was her friend Alice. She was somewhat a relative of Oliver's and she was very embarrassed by all of this. "I'm so sorry about him, love. Your new patient is in the room with the less severe patients. Where they are all together." She said and hugged Maria.
Maria returned the hug. "Thank you so much." She said softly. As she walked out, she saw Oliver escape and gasped. He'd likely torment somebody else now and that did not make her very happy. But she made her way, still trembling lightly, to the group room to find her new patient, Lovino Vargas.
Lovino hadn't been there long at all and he wasn't very fond of it. He just wanted to leave but was forced to stay.
She approached him, noticing that he was a new face. She took a deep breath to steady herself and walked over to him. Her face and eyes were still red and her eyes were puffy as well from crying. But she didn't really realize it. "Hallo, you must be Lovino. I am your nurse, Maria. Is there anything you need?" She asked, forcing herself to wear her polite smile that she used with all of her patients. Though it normally was not forced.
Lovino looked up at her and the first thing he noticed was that her eyes were red and puffy from crying. He had seen those eyes too much and it didn't make him very happy to see them again. He just watched her for a second. "I'm fine..." he trailed off and looked away.
"Is there something wrong...?" She asked, still not realizing that it was obvious that she'd pretty much just been traumatized.
Lovino looked back at her. "You've been crying..." He said quietly as he glared at the ground and huffed, a bit annoyed.
She gasped and turned away, muttering a curse word to herself in German. "N-no I haven't. It's a-allergies..." She lied terribly, feeling embarrassed.
He growled and stood up, sighing again. "If it's the fact that I'm "bad", that is not fucking true!" He growled, even more annoyed than before.
She looked over at him in confusion. "Honey, you're not bad. No it's somebody else that is bad. Way worse. He's evil..." She trailed off, not liking to see her patient upset.
Lovino looked away a bit. "If I wasn't bad I wouldn't be here. I'm not an idiot..." He said in a pained tone. He sounded himself like he wanted to cry.
"Being here doesn't always mean you're bad. Sometimes it just means you need help. What are you in for, liebe?" She asked, using the caring pet-name she used only on those she really cared about and she could sense that he really needed tender care.
Lovino sighed once more and began walking over to get a drink of water. he knew he was going to have to talk about it sometime...but not now. No, never.
She sighed, feeling like a fail of a nurse. "Okay, nevermind. Nice chat." She said and looked down sadly.
Lovino kept ignoring her as he started drinking his water. He kept quiet as he mumbled some things in Italian.
She sighed and walked away. Today just wasn't her day.
As the hours passed, Lovino ended up falling asleep on the floor. Under his sleeves, were arms filled with scars and scabs from cuts that he gave to himself.
Maria walked over to him, seeing that he was on the floor and she carried him over to a vacant dorm, laying him on the mattress and covering him up. She noticed something on his wrist as his sleeve slightly came up and she looked again, gasping softly at what she saw. Keeping silent, she backed out of the room and went to go alert the counselor.
Lovino continued to sleep and moved around a bit, rubbing his eyes in his sleep.
The counselor sat at his office and was working on his computer when Maria knocked on the door, worry evident in her already stressed-out face.
He jumped a bit then sighed lightly. "Come in." He said professionally, having a feeling that it was a fellow worker.
She entered silently, her tail swinging nervously. "O-our newest patient, Lovino Vargas....he has scratches on his wrists...." She trailed off, looking very worried.
The counselor nodded slowly. "Yes...I assume he didn't tell you why he's here then?" He could tell by the way she was shocked about the wrists.
"He refused to say it.... He doesn't seem crazy. Just...depressed." She said, frowning.
The counselor nodded again. "Yes, we assume he just needs someone to talk to. We thought you would be perfect. He told me he really enjoys your company." He stated, smiling lightly.
She blushed a little bit. "H-he didn't act like it..." She trailed off, but smiled.
The counselor sighed lightly. "Cut him some slack. He's having some rough times. The reason he has those scars is because his brother died about a month ago. He tried committing suicide but luckily, somebody walked in and stopped him."
She nodded. "I see. That is so sad..." She said and sighed. "I will treat him with the utmost respect and care." She vowed.
The counselor nodded slowly. "Just don't tell him I told you why he's here." He said seriously.
"I won't." She promised.
The counselor nodded. "The only scars we know are his arms, if you see anything else please tell us." He went back to working on his computer after stating this.
"I sure will." She replied and headed out to check on her patient.
Lovino was still sleeping, rolling around a bit and groaning in his sleep.
She sat in a chair next to him, frowning when she heard him groan.
Lovino shot up and was panting as he looked around and rubbed his eyes. He couldn't see, but he didn't panic as his sight returned to him. He got up once he saw Maria.
She stood and placed a hand on his shoulder. "Are you alright?" She asked him in a hushed tone.
He growled as she accidentally placed her hand on a bruise that was on his shoulder and he yelped in pain. Glaring at her, he slapped her hand away.
"S-sorry." She whimpered awkwardly and backed away a little, her tail swaying slowly in embarrassment.
Lovi muttered something in Italian and walked out of the room, walking around and looking for different things to do. "Wow...there's literally nothing to do..." He humbled in frustration and annoyance.
Maria followed, hearing his complaint. "Well, we have movies. Would you like to watch a movie?" She offered, her ears perking attentively.
He stared at her ears and scoffed lightly. "Do you listen to everything with those ears?" He asked, glaring a little.
"What are you..." She sighed patiently. "Yes, I kind of have to."
Lovino growled and looked away from her, looking flustered and annoyed as he started walking away from her.
She face palmed. "I'm sorry if my ears make you uncomfortable..." She trailed off, following him. She only followed him because it was kind of her job to keep an eye on him. She now had her ears flattened on her head to hide them a little.
He stopped dead in his tracks and snapped his head in her direction. "Does everybody here get followed like this!?" He demanded in annoyance and probably anger.
"I'm your nurse so I have to keep up with you. I'm very sorry, but it's my job." She answered calmly.
Lovino closed his eyes and rubbed his temples. "It's fucking annoying..." He huffed and began walking around again.
She sighed and sat down in a chair, wishing she could change to her cat form without people freaking out.
He just stopped walking around and sat down as well. "So can you like...turn into a cat and shit?" He asked curiously, as if reading her mind or something.
"Hm~? Oh uh...yeah but what made you ask?" She wondered, baffled at his random question.
He shrugged. "I don't know..."
"Well, I can. I can also be a full human without the ears and tail but that just feel strange." She stated, chuckling lightly.
Lovino nodded a bit. "I bet it does."
Maria's tail swayed softly from side to side. She was rather sleepy from the long day she'd had.
Lovi yawned, already tired from earlier. "We should sleep or something." He stated in a sleepy voice.
She nodded in agreement. "Yes, especially you. I just hope you don't wake like you did before. I was very worried." She said softly.
He looked at her for a moment. "It was just a silly nightmare...I'm fine." He lied, pulling a small fake smile.
She had worked here long enough to know a fake smile when she saw one. "Just...don't be scared to ask for anything. I'll always be close by." She promised him.
He nodded. "Okay. I'm counting on you now." He threatened jokingly.
She chuckled. "I won't let ya down."
Lovi smiled faintly and closed his eyes. "Well, do I just sleep anywhere?" He looked at her lazily.
She shook her head. "I'll show you to your dorm." She said softly and walked to the room they were in before, expecting him to follow.
He nodded and followed her, rubbing his eyes a bit because he was exhausted.
She pulled the covers back so he could lie down. "There you go." She said with a smile.
He closed his eyes and fell asleep rather quickly. he moved around in his sleep a little at first, but it died down over time and he slept peacefully.
She covered him up and then went to sleep in the chair next to his bed.
Later one, Maria got up earlier than Lovino did and went to go retrieve his breakfast, bringing it to him and calling his name softly. "Lovino~ Lovi, wake up. Time to eat." She said quietly. He had breakfast pizza, a salad with small tomatoes, with an apple, and orange juice.
Lovino opened his eyes a bit, hearing the pet name he was normally referred to. "Don't call me that..." He said groggily as he stood up.
"Sorry." She said awkwardly. "Anyways, here's your food. You can eat it in here if you'd like to. I won't force you to eat with the others. You don't seem insane like they are. You're fairly normal and I'll make sure you're treated that way."
He rolled his eyes and took the tray of food and mumbled "Thanks..." In a dry tone.
"No problem. Did you sleep well?" She asked him sweetly.
He only shrugged. "I usually don't remember my dreams or anything...so I suppose." He lied casually.
She nodded. "Well, I'd rather you forget than to have a bad dream and remember."
Lovino smiled lightly. "Yeah, that seems better." He agreed through his lie. He remembered everything about that dream. But he was a skilled liar. He had to be.
She wondered what he really did dream about but she chose to leave it alone. "We have nice clothes supplied for you since you won't be here for a very long time. Depending on...n-never mind." She didn't want to slip and say why he was there because he didn't even know that she knew.
"You just won't be here for too long. But it depends."
He glared at her and huffed as he walked towards her. "What the hell did they say to you!?" He demanded and glared down at her.
She whimpered softly, hear ears flattening against her head. "T-they said not to say i-it...Please don't hurt me..." She whimpered, easily intimidated now.
Lovino kept a direct glare at her eyes and had her under a death stare. "I'm not going to hurt you, just tell me god dammit!" He growled, angered that she was hiding something from him.
She whimpered more, tearing up a little. "I can't. P-please stop yelling at me." She said in a lightly whispery voice.
He only kept glaring at her. "Tell me what they told you!"
"ALRIGHT!!" She gave in, hating being yelled at. "You're d-depressed because your b-brother passed away..." She trailed off, trembling slightly now.
He growled and kicked the ground. "THIS! This is why I trust no one! I thought I could tell you myself!" He shouted angrily.
She whimpered again, shrinking back down into her seat.
Lovi stormed out of the room and curled up into a ball in a far corner of one of the rooms and tried to hide.
She sighed and wondered if she should try to find him. She promised to be there for him and he definitely needed it.
Lovino just wanted to disappear. He wanted to leave everything and just die.
She searched for him, deciding it wasn't right to leave him alone to be upset. "Lovino...Where are you? Please come out..." She called, letting go of her intimidations because that was not the most important thing right now.
He kept hiding, especially when he heard her say his name.
She called for him more, really worried now. "Lovino please...please come out..." She begged, feeling very sad for him.
Lovino kept hiding. It's not like there was anything dangerous he could have done.
Maria sighed and sat down in a chair nearby. "Fine, don't..." She trailed off.
He growled when he heard her. "I won't!" He yelled angrily.
She glared and followed the sound of his voice, though she couldn't quite pinpoint where it was coming from. "Lovino please don't be mad at me. It's not like I asked them to tell me....I respected that you didn't want to tell me yet..." She explained calmly.
He growled again and huffed loudly. "You could have said you didn't want to know!!" He retorted in frustration.
"I didn't know they'd tell me..." She continued, sighing. She could hear the pain in his voice and could understand his anger.
He just sighed. "Whatever..." He mumbled.
She tossed the 'enjoying her company' thing out of her mind because it was obvious that it wasn't very true. "Look, I know you're not too fond of me. I know you don't want to be here and I know you're depressed. But hear me out...I really care about you and I want to help." She said gently, trying to level with him.
Lovino got up and walked over to her. "How do you know I'm not fond of you?" He asked sincerely.
"You don't act like it." She replied with a shrug.
"You're the only person who is there for me..." He mumbled sadly.
She wasn't sure what to think. If this was good or bad. "Most would say 'well, that's my job'....but...I'd be here for you even if I didn't work here. If I were just a patient I would still make sure you were alright. You deserve somebody to be there for you." She answered sweetly, smiling warmly at him.
He smiled softly and nodded at her. "T-thank you.." He said quietly, feeling happier at her words.
"It's no trouble." She said sweetly, tempted to hug him but not wanting to make him uncomfortable.
He maintained his soft smile and hugged her, having wanted a hug as well.
She looked surprised and hugged him back, though she didn't expect it.
He let go and coughed opposite of her direction, clearing his throat as he scratched the back of his head awkwardly. "Sorry..." He said softly, slightly embarrassed.
Maria was blushing a little. "Don't be." She responded simply, softly purring.
Lovino smiled faintly as he scratched her ears and petted them. "Be my kitty~" He mused with a light chuckle.
Her eyes widened and she blushed darker. "H-huh~?" She stuttered, sounding a little awestruck.
He laughed again. "Turn into a kitty so I can pet you." He explained with a brighter smile.
She chuckled. "Alright, that's a first." She said gently and suddenly, she disappeared under her nurse dress on the floor as a little white kitty and peeked her head out of the neck-hole of the dress, mewing at him cutely. She couldn't speak in this form.
He let out another laugh and picked her up gently. "Awww~" he cooed. "You're adorable" He continued and petted her softly, scratching her ears as well.
She purred loudly, nudging her head against his hand to make him pet her more.
He smiled and kept scratching her ears as he lay down with her on his stomach.
She nuzzled his hand, letting out another soft mew.
He chuckled, smiling warmly at her as he continued to scratch her soft little ears.
She walked up his abdomen, stopping at his chest and nuzzling his chin. She was happy that somebody allowed her to be in her more comfortable form. The more insane patients only freaked out and threw things at her.
He covered her and picked her up as he went to his dorm so nobody would throw things at her. Once there, he lay down on the bed and sat her where she was before and continued to pet her gently.
She looked back at the doorway and mewed, having left her clothes. She pawed his chin lightly.
He looked at the hallway and nodded, then sat up and put her on his shoulder. He began walking back to where they were to retrieve her clothes.
She wrapped her long, fluffy tail around the top of his arm and leaned against his cheek.
He smiled faintly and walked to go retrieve her clothes and when he got to them, he picked them up and went back to the dorm. Maria then licked his cheek and mewed cutely as a thank you.
Lovi smiled and laughed. "Hey, that tickles!~" He said softly and scratched her ears as he put her clothes on the table in his dorm. "It's there if you want to change back, okay?" He said and lay on the bed, putting her back on his chest and continued to pet her back gently.
Mari purred, feeling very relaxed now and even a bit sleepy. Being a kitty, she of coursed loved to sleep.
He started falling asleep as he scratched her ears and petted her, a faint smile on his face.
She also started going to sleep, purring loudly to show her happiness at being petted.
He caressed her a couple more times before he fully drifted to sleep, his hand lingering on her small feline body.
Later one, a co-worker entered, searching for her. But instead, she found a Lovino asleep with a small white kitty on his chest, and clothes on the dresser and she facepalmed. But she didn't have the heart to wake them.
He still had his hand on her back, and her heard footsteps and opened his eyes slightly.
Maria opened her eyes as well, her ears perking as she turned her head towards the door.
Lovino looked at the door through half-opened eyes and then took Maria off of his chest, setting her gently on the bed. "I'm sorry I- uh..." He stuttered, trying to find a way to explain.
The other nurse chuckled. "It's fine. Cat therapy must be her specialty, though she's never done this before. She's always been afraid of changing. I'll cover for her, you just chill. After yesterday, I think she deserves a break anyways." She said and exited the room.
He picked the small kitty up into his arms and laid back down with her on his chest once more. "What did
happen yesterday if you don't mind me asking...?" He wondered out loud, petting her head softly.
She went frigid, her pupils dilating and her purring stopped abruptly.
He saw the change in her eyes and how her purring stopped. "That bad, huh? Whoever it is, I'll have to kick their ass for you." He mused with a wink and a faint smile.
She let out a kitty sigh and licked his chin, not yet willing to change back into her human form and admit what happened. She was still very humiliated.
He closed his eyes. "If you need to talk at any time, I'll be here." He promised, continuing to pet her comfortingly.
She mewed softly, noticing he was doing for her what she was doing for him and she nuzzled his chin.
He smiled warmly, caressing her ears and her cute little kitty face. "You know, you're really sweet. I appreciate it...I know I'm a dick." He said with a sigh.
She frowned and placed a paw on his chin as her way of saying 'no', and she hoped he understood by her facial expression.
He glanced at her for a moment. "I know you think I'm not, but I am...And I am going to try to be nicer." He responded.
She licked his nose and mewed at him, causing him to smile once again. She mewed again at his reaction, nuzzling him once more.
He ran out of things to say. "So...." He trailed off, thinking for a moment.
She hopped up onto his dresser, dragging her dress down with her teeth and darting to his bathroom. When she came out, she was nurse Maria again. "Hi." She greeted with a smile.
He waited and blinked in shock when she returned. "Well that was quick..." He mused.
"The transformation doesn't take very long." She agreed with a giggle.
He nodded. "But dressing?" He pressed, wondering how she got dressed so quickly.
"It's a zip-down dress...." She trailed off, thinking about how easily she was accessed because of the lazily made opening of the garment. She shook the thought away quickly.
He nodded. "Oh, alright." He said as he sat up, yawning.
She walked over and sat next to him, smiling politely. "You still look very exhausted. I must admit, this place is quite a bore."
He chuckled softly. "Yeah, it is." he agreed.
"Let's hope you won't be too long, huh?" She giggled. "You don't fit in with the rest of these people. But at least they didn't throw you in a sponge room." She shuddered. "They are the worst..."
He shrugged. "I'm hope I'm not in here too long either." He agreed.
"Once you leave, I may consider quitting. I was considering quitting yesterday...but you need me here." She said softly, her thoughts taking her over slightly.
Lovi shook his head. "If you need to quit, then quit." He said gently, looking her in the eyes.
"I'm fine with staying for as long as you need. I don't really mind it."
He shrugged slightly. "I don't know..." He trailed off in deep thought.
Maria got an idea. "Do you really
need to be here?" She asked, a devious gleam in her crimson red eyes.
He shook his head and then shrugged. "I-I'm not really sure. If they think I should be here, then I guess I do." He answered with a sigh.
"I saw your wrists...my guess is because they think you need counseling because you cut. But if you would promise not to hurt yourself, I could bust you out of here." She said, knowing a way out through the basement where the meds and other things were brought in and stored. And she could get there perfectly without ever being suspected. It was an old trick, really...but she'd hide him in a rolling cart, going down in the elevator. The rest would be easy because there would be no shipping today so nobody would be down there.
He nodded and smiled. "I swear I won't." He promised, eager to hear the rest of her plan.
She nodded. "Great because after yesterday...I just don't want to be here and I'll explain that later. Here's the plan..." She whispered and explained everything to him in great detail.
He nodded and smirked slightly. "Alright." He agreed.
"I'll tell then that I'm going to get you some medicine. When I don't come back, they may call the police, which is perfectly fine. I am one hell of a driver." She chuckled darkly.
He laughed as well. "Good." he mused.
"I'll be right back." She said and hurried off to grab a supply cart, prepared to carry this plan out. She then returned with a long sheet to cover it. "Alright, I'll need you to hide in the bottom." She said urgently.
He nodded and climbed in it, hiding at the very bottom and she covered him carefully with the sheet, locking his door behind her and, being the only one with the key, she locked it. She then traveled down the halls, heading toward the supply basement. The plan was in motion.To be continued....
