I haven't been around Balamb the last several days. Been sort of... I guess... avoiding people. I've been feeling a bit odd, lately. It may have something to do with the upcoming 'holiday'. Me, of all people, is not going with anybody. Crazy, no? I don't know why I decided this, but I just feel like... I don't know. I guess I feel like something's going on upstairs. Maybe the whole sniper job is finally taking it's toll on me. *shrugs* That, or maybe it's the fact that I haven't had any human contact in almost a week. X.x That'll definitely do a person in.
Quistis is back from visiting Ellone and Edea! Edea will be coming over to Balamb to see Cid sometime in the future. It'll be nice to see her again. Don't speak much with her, but she's a part of us all, either way. We were together in her orphanage, after all. She's kind of like a mom, I guess... even though I ... well yeah. That's just creating a redundancy in my writing, so I'll quit that.
I'm not restless anymore!! I think all the fighting I've been doing finally wore me in enough to settle me down. So that's nice. I can finally just sit off somewhere and admire my surroundings... Like today! I was sitting over near the docks in Balamb; and I see this momma cat with her little litter of kittens. She was, apparently trying to teach them how to capture their own fish. Quite a feat, considering the fish were probably twice the size of the little ones. Ah, to have a mother who wishes only the best for her loved ones. Those kittens ignored her half the time... except, of course, to play with her feet or tail. It was endearing and brought a sort of heaviness upon my chest. Maybe I was a little jealous of those kittens... *shrugs* I eventually approached them and sat down near the mother. She was amazingly sweet for a stray, but very watchful of her kittens; always making sure I was bringing no harm to them. I'm thinking of maybe taking her and her litter in... I just don't know where I'd keep them. I'm pretty sure they don't allow pets over at the Garden...
I'm thinking of naming her Tohmba. Strange name, yes I know, but I think it suits her. I'll name her kittens eventually, I hope. Those might just stay little private names for only me to know, though. ^_^
I enjoyed today.. so relaxing and happy. I stayed there with that little family until far after sunset. I just didn't want to leave them. I grew attached way too quickly. I've become a softy!! ;.;
Yes, well... I'm going to head out back to Balamb now and see if I can find Tohmba and her litter. Maybe sneak them into a nice little home. Hmm... Anyone know if there are any homes for sale in Balamb? If not, maybe I'll build myself one on the outskirts somewhere... What do you think?
