"How many times have I had the same dream...that other world that echoes in my thoughts every time I shut my eyes. It seems so real I'm surprised to wake up in my room at times." The world stretched out before Saru once again, he always saw it from up above, the sun shining high in the sky, grassy plains stretching out as far as the eye could see and right in what seemed like the middle a large castle that even from up above he could tell towered over the landscape. His eyes were always drawn to the small things in that place, the small courtyard within it surrounded by an assortments of flowers, with a vibrancy that seemed to match the sun's brightness and showed the care put into them. The multiple spires on top of the castle covered in red tiles, windows in each particular one, his gaze always seemed to move to the lower right spire as there was always a lantern in the window with a small flame flickering in it. The large wooden doors surrounded by a steel outline that seemed both welcoming and threatening in some strange way in front of it was hard to ignore as well. These were the few things he noticed in his dreams and even though he was far sighted he could always see the castle clearly from so high. Except for today. For some reason the wind was pounding against him and the castle was a tad blurry at first, though after a bit of time he noticed it was starting to clear up...and get closer. He realized he was falling towards the castle very quickly, Saru looked down at his outfit to see he was in his red pajama bottoms and black socks, he still had his grey t-shirt on and for some reason this dream felt extremely real...too real. He wasn't sure how to respond to this stimulation, this was a dream so he'd wake up before he hit the ground that was normally the case but the ground was getting steadily closer now. Unsure of what action to take Saru did the only thing that made sense in this given circumstance. "AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!" He screamed. Saro was pulling the laundry off the line he had created putting them into a large basket he brought with him, since it was nice out he decided drying outside would be for the best. Though he normally wore his black coat he put it aside wearing his long sleeved vest, black dress pants and mid-calf boots instead. When he reached a pair of panties he picked them up before holding them out tilting his head. These were still a bit wet so he couldn't take them down quite yet, he started to put them back on the line but his ears twitched picking up screams. Saro had a tendency to look half-asleep throughout the day, his eyelids half lowered at all times of the day and looking up at the sky to see a human falling offered no change to his blank expression, though his tail did move back and forth. "...what is that?" he mumbled his voice monotone and lacking any manner of emotion. "...whatever it is it can't fly...which means it's going to die if it hits the ground falling at that speed." Saro looked down at the panties in his hands before looking up at the man, if it was Felicity's panties he could just hang them back up since he was sure no one wanted them, but if it was the princesses some bandits might take them as a prize and as her butler he couldn't permit the possibility of such an act, and since he wasn't about to sniff them he knew the only course of action to keep from leaving them alone. The ground inched closer and Saru shut his eyes waiting for the hard ground to meet him, he didn't pick up the sound of footsteps approaching him and in one moment Saro leaped and caught Saru sliding along the ground a bit as he held the young man in his arms. "Aaaahhh...huh," Saru said opening one of his eyes. When it landed on the emotionless Saro the cat's ears twitched causing Saru to flinch at the strange cat-man creature he was staring at. "Eh...what are you?" Saru said before looking at his tail...which had a pair of panties hanging off them. "...why do you have a pair of underwear on your tail?" "They're not dry," Saro said before dropping him on the ground. "Hold still." "Hey wait what, stop that! Hey-" Saru's words were ignored as Saro tied the young man's hands up with rope before throwing him over his shoulder, turning he started back towards the castle. "Where are you taking me? What are you? Where am I?" Panicked questions came from Saru but Saro ignored him and grabbing his basket headed back towards the castle. "Mistress will answer your questions," Saro said continuing forward. "Stop squirming and just in case they belong to the princess don't look at the royal panties it's rude." "...I'm so confused right now," Saru said sighing hanging his head in defeat. "I'm confused too so the princess will decide what happens to you."
