He was strange – that man.
True, all humans were strange to Lady but him more so than the rest. He didn't quiver in her presence and didn't run screaming in fear at her atrocities. In fact, he seemed to rather enjoy them.
When humans make that unusual barking sound; a laugh, it means they're finding something amusing – whatever that was. That man, the one whom always followed her seemed to find many things she'd done amusing. Frequently, his face would twist and distort into something else, a smirk it was called. He did it often and usually whenever something sinister entered his mind.
He was possessive of her as well; rarely leaving her alone and never allowing any man to approach. It wasn't often but occasionally some intoxicated hermit would swing his arm around her offering her a drink, as if the offer itself would persuade her to mate with him. She felt what she believed to be disgust at these times but before she ever put the man in his place, her devotee would be doing it for her, as if she needed his protection.
He always made sure she was healthy; eating correctly, getting enough sleep, all those menial things humans are so fond of. Even when his food was scarce he gave her the majority of it and more than once had he stayed up all night making sure nothing would harm her in the darkness. Although these were simple and trivial things, Lady found herself (was it appreciative?) of the small thing he did for her whilst neglecting his own needs and desires. More than once had he tried to hide his grumbling belly and try to disguise a yawn into a cough.
She could never understand his need to look after her. He owed her nothing and vice versa but he always insisted on following her. It didn't matter if it were through ice or fire, hell or heaven, will or malice – he still followed her and still tried his hardest to keep her safe.
"...You saved me, you know. It's the first time...anyone did that for me. That's why... I'm not trying to thank you, but I'll protect you...as long as I can...till I die."
When she watched him walk away from her and the gate, she cocked her head to the side and wondered what his motive could be to feel so needed.
That's when the conclusion came to her.
He needed to feel needed by her.
"I'm gonna help Lady get whatever she wants. I couldn't care less if this world is destroyed. As long as I can be with Lady, I'm happy."
He was strange indeed.
