2 hours later~
Devon had finally brought Jake to his apartment, it felt like hours going through all that traffic, he wondered if Jake was asleep, but he didn't want to bother him anyways cause he knew how terrified Jake was right now, and Devon wanted him to calm down.
Although Jake was terrified, there still was some hope in his heart about being loved and cared for, like he always daydreamed of when he was in his cage back at the shelter. Devon had soon unlocked the door on Jakes side and very carefully took him out, just to make sure not to startle him too much.
But all the hopes of not scaring Jake were lost when he felt the box start to shake a little in the corner, so instead of waiting for Jake to stop trembling, Devon reached over to the corner of the box and gently poked it with his index finger, “hey, what’s wrong buddy?” Devon asked kinda worried.
“just paranoia I guess, but also Im u-m
kinda s-scared...” Jake whispered up to the giant voice that was owned by his captor, he hoped Devon wouldn't get mad at him for being scared, James never liked it when Jake would cry, it was annoying to James...
~In the house~
Devon had just locked the door and set Jakes’ box on the ground right next to the couch, which really wasn't very smart since Jake was so terrified.
“alright little buddy, I'm gonna open the box, ok?” Devon said in a low whisper
“o-ok, I'm ready” which was really a lie, Jake wasn't ready to be owned again but he knew that just maybe he could trust Devon but those memories of James were still playing in his mind.
Jakes’ leg was still broken and it hurt ridiculously a lot when it moved in weird ways, so he couldn't run now anyways.
Jake saw the light start to peek in at the top of the box as it was lifted. Devon's face then appeared and it was smiling softly down at Jake.
“Hey little buddy, would you be ok if I took you out?” Devon asked, not wanting to just reach in and grab him.
“u-u-um s-sure, i-ill b-be ok.” Jake said trembling, he didn't actually know Devon. For all Jake knew, Devon was about to hit him, and it was starting to scare him.
“ok Jake” Devon laid his hand down in the box and gave Jake a little beckon with his finger “come here, I promise you'll be ok.” Devon said with a gentle smile.
Jake was now staring at the giant hand before him, the crevices that were in his palm, the lines that were on his fingers, it was kinda stunning to be in front of a giant again, but also terrifying.
Devon felt Jake climbing onto his palm and it kinda felt weird to be able to hold such a small creature with thoughts and feelings. Jake then looked up at Devon, fear evident in his eyes. So to calm him down, he brought up his finger and leaned his hand up against his chest.
But Jake didn't notice the middle finger creeping up behind him, and soon enough the finger had started rubbing up and down Jakes back, it caused his trembling to stop a little as he leaned into Devon’s gentle touch.
Jake felt safe for once, like as if nothing could harm him, he leaned forward into Devon's chest and let out those secret tears that had been hiding ever since the abuse with James, and he knew Devon would just hold him and care for him.
“Shhhh, its ok little buddy, nothing can harm you now, I promise” Devon whispered as Jake sobbed against his chest, Devon guiltily was hoping this would happen, he wanted to be able to show Jake that he was are here and that no one would ever hurt him again.
But then both Devon and Jake heard the door open, as Axel, Devons’ roommate had just walked in.
“Hey Devon, how was your day-” he was cut off by seeing Devon holding a human, “Oh, hello little one...” Axel said with a sly smile.
