Author's Notes: This have actually been on my mind for months now, but still have been too lazy to do it. XD Anyway, the inspiration really came from the last line of this fic. I have another version of this, though... Didn't post cause I didn't like it so I made this one. If you want the other version you can give me you're e-mail and I'll send it to you... chu! ja ne, minna!


"Gon..." Killua placed a comforting hand on Gon's shoulder as they both watched what was supposed to be theirs be taken away.

"Killua..." Gon sniffed and turned to him with a tear-stricken face that Killua would have found hilarious if it weren't for the situation they were in. "Our puppy..." It came out as a whine as Gon pointed to the small puppy in a small cage, being carried by a young woman.

It's been weeks since Gon has requested for a pet and try as he might, Killua couldn't stop Gon from dragging him to the pet shop. Time seemed to stop as Gon neared a small cage and Killua had been mortified as Gon announced the next five words.

"Killua, I want this one!"

Killua was hoping that he might get lucky and Gon wouldn't find anything special and they'd go home with no critter woofing at them, but alas, fate wasn't on his side. But unfortunately for Gon, they didn't have enough money. Killua had sighed then, slumping back in defeat. Who the hell could overcome Gon's puppy-dog-eyes? So after a few weeks, the two finally got the money and went to the pet shop, only to find that the puppy they were looking for was already just sold.

And now, as they walked away from the pet shop, Killua couldn't help but plot ways on how to kill the young woman for making Gon cry and get the puppy back.

"You know, Killua..." Gon started, looking up at the sky, "I'm not really sad about the puppy..."

Killua raised an eyebrow and looked at Gon who was now smiling beside him, "Why is that?"

"Because I still have you."
