Your (e/c) eyes wandered around the pet store filled with excitement. Today was the day you were going to buy your own pet. Lately after your parents death you started to feel lonely so here you where, wondering what kind of animal you should get to keep you company.
You walked around for what felt like hours until something caught your eye. You went closer and noticed it was a brown and black german shepard. You stretched out your hand to pat his head, it was really soft.
"You like him?"You turned and saw your friend Elisabeta standing there with a smile.
"Hi Liz, when did you get here?" You asked.
"I just came, I work part- time here." Liz answered.
"So you want Ludwig? He seems to like you" Liz asked.
You took a look at Ludwig, could you really take care of him? What you had heard a dog needed much attention and love, could you offer that?
"Yeah, I'll buy him" You said. You paid for Ludwig and got out from the store.
"Listen now Ludwig, you gonna have to do what I say okay?" You said and almost hoped for an answer. As on cue, Ludwig nodded. You smiled and let him down on the ground to walk with you but unlike other dogs he didn't walk beside you, he walked infront of you.
"H-hey! You don't even know where I live!" You said as Ludwig dragged you along. He stopped and looked at you wondering where to go.
"Just follow me..." You sighed but Ludwig tugged on your (f/c) pants as by saying no.
"Oh, you like to be the leader? Fine, but it's your fault if we get lost" You said.
Moments later both you and Ludwig had managed to reach your apartment. You reached for your keys in your pocket and almost opened your door when someone called out for you.
"Hey (name)!" You turned and saw your neighbor Francis standing in his door opening.
"Hi Francis" You answered. Ludwig started to growl quietly at Francis without any of you noticing.
"Oh! Who's this little fellow?" Francis asked and bent down at Ludwig's level.
"This is Ludwig, my new friend." You answered.
"I see but don't let him into your bedroom, I want privacy with you" Francis said with a smirk. You rolled your eyes at your neighbours perverted mind but stiffened when he took his hand around your waist and pulled you gently against a wall.
"F-Francis?? What are you doing?" You asked and tried to pull him off.
"Don't worry mon cheri, there's nothing to fear" Francis said and leaned in for a kiss.
But before he could kiss you, Ludwig bit on his leg causing Francis to yell in pain. You giggled at Francis and then silently went into your apartment with Ludwig.
You sat down on your couch and pulled out your laptop, only to be disturbed by a paw on your keyboard.
"What's the matter boy?" you asked him. Ludwig took your long (f/c) shirt sleeve and pulled you towards the kitchen.
"Oh! You are hungry, how stupid of me" you said and opened the fridge.
"You want some sausages?" Ludwig wagged his tail and barked happily when you mentioned that, you giggled and picked out a package.
"Okay, let's just heat them up."
You put some sausages in a bowl for Ludwig and ate some yourself. Ludwig stroke his head against your leg, this made you smile and patted him.
"You liked that? That's good to know." You said. You left the kitchen and returned to the couch with Ludwig lying beside you, his head in your lap.
"Hey Ludwig, I'm just gonna take a shower, be nice and don't ruin anything" you said and left the shepard on his own.
This is nice, a warm couch, delicious food and a great owner, what more could I need? The only bad thing is that Francis guy who lives next door, he seems like bad business for (name). Well, if he gets too close I'll just have to bite him again, (name) is mine and no one elses.
I sure like the space here, it's quite big for only one person and I'm able to move around freely. I decided to explore the apartment, if I was going to stay here I needed to know my surroundings. I started by entering a room with a halfclosed door, I peeked in but it was really dark. What I could tell by the shapes and shadows, this was most likely (name)'s bedroom. The bed looked soft so why not try it out?
'No Ludwig! (name) will just be mad' I thought but then on the other hand, (name) was nice and probably wouldn't mind me sleeping on her bed.
"What's this? looks like you already found your sleeping spot in the house" (name) said. I opened my eyes and saw her sitting on the edge of her bed in her pyjama, how long did I sleep? I got off the bed when (name) pulled on the covers and laid back on the pillow. I was ready to leave for the couch, (name) needed her personal space.
Ludwig left the bed when I got comfortable, he probably didn't like to sleep with his owners. But even if that was the case I couldn't let him sleep alone on my couch in the livingoom.
"Ludwig, where are you going?" I asked him. Ludwig motioned his head for the livingroom but I objected.
"You don't have to sleep on the couch, there's space for both of us" I said. Ludwig turned back and joined me in my bed, I felt how he cuddled closer to my chest, he was warm.
"You like my place Ludwig?" I asked. Ludwig nodded and licked my cheek.
"Then you are staying with me and don't run away?" I asked. Ludwig nodded once more.
I smiled at his response and hugged him. I closed my eyes and fell asleep, I wouldn't be lonely anymore with Ludwig around, he was going to stay with me, forever.
