Fox frowned, stroking the fox’s back. The animal seemed distraught. “Is this some kind of joke?”
"That would be nice.. I’m sure Jimmy would love him." He smiled, ruffling the fur on the Fox’s back.
there was a kick at the door and Fox stumbled in, arms full of bags. Huffing and puffing from the run. “I’m!…. Back!”
She jumped up and ran over to Fox taking a few bags from his arms. “What else did you buy!?” She carried the bags to the kitchen.
Fox laughed. “Ah you know… a little of everything they had.. meat wise. Figured if he doesn’t like any of it, we can make a stew or something!” He set the rest of the bags in the kitchen, then walked back to the living room. Standing behind the couch and hovering over Smokes’ shoulder. “Hey boy…” He smiled, giving the fox a scratch on his head. “you like him huh?”
"Yeah he’s pretty cool…" Smokes tried not to show how attached he was.
She laughed and started to pull everything out of the bags. She took out the sliced beef and cut it up smaller before putting it on a dish. She walked back into the room “ok boys, time to feed the little one.” She lied at the two brothers with the little fox.
Picking up on the smell, the fox practically jumped out of Smokes’ grip. Bounding towards her and jumping at her feet. Smokes was shocked at just how well the animal moved, watching it with wide eyes as it begged for its food.
Fox only laughed seeing his brother’s reaction. “See? You should fear foxes. Like me and Foxy, old man!”
"He is hungrier then we thought." She bent down and set the food down infront of the fox.
The two Brass Bots watched as the animal scarffed down its food happily. “Yeah woah… I guess when its done eating we should find it a crate or something for you to take it.”
"Take it?" Smokes puffed, turning from Fox to Foxy. "Take it where? Where ya takin’ it?"
Fox blinked a few times in surprise. “Uh! Well! I didn’t think you’d want an animal in the apartment? Plus we aren’t allowed to have pets… and… ya know. The mess? The Smoke?” He pointed to the thick cloud that lined the ceiling that constantly hovered over their heads. “You said yourself, ‘no organic should live in the same space as you. They’d suffocate.’ “
Smokes pouted at the words. Falling back on the couch and crossing his arms over his chest. He was right.
"Don’t worry Smokes darlin, I’m just taking him to the manor with me and ill bring him over as often as I can. Since the manor is so big I’ll be able to keep him hidden from Dr. Hannibal, if not I’ll take him to an animal reservation." She pet the little animal they where all becoming attached to as it ate. "We have to remember he is a wild animals."
Smokes huffed again. His arms slowly lowering from his chest as he watched her pet the beast. “Yeah… he… he deserves ta be out there in the woods. With his people things.”
"You mean other foxes?" Fox laughed.
"Yeah… whatever! Shit… I’m tired… had a long night…" Smokes huffed again. "Ya get any food for us while you were there?"
"Hell no! It was Foxy’s money anyway." Fox frowned, rubbing his chin. "I think there’s still pizza in the fridge."
