The time was 7:15 pm. Nick and Judy were walking out of the
precinct together. As the door closed behind them a black car with black
tinted windows pulled into the space in front of the double doors.
“Someone’s compensating” Nick smirked.
Judy just shook her head as the door opened and a relatively
tall and very serious looking rabbit stepped out of the car in a black suit.
The confident rabbit had 3 unique stripes, almost like whiskers on each of his
furry cheeks. He adjusted his blazer and tie before closing the door and
locking it behind him. He walked around the car and made eye contact with Nick
as he stepped onto the sidewalk. The rabbit looked away paused then turned back
“Is … Is that Nick Wilde?” The rabbit asked questioningly.
“Jack Business Savvy !? get outta town” Nick shouted with a
They walked up to each other and exchanged a complicated
handshake that ended with a dramatic pound as Judy watched, baffled. Jack took
a step back from Nick and shook his head.
“I can’t believe a con fox like you ended up with a badge on his
“Yeahhh okay James Bong, I guess the background checks
weren’t too thorough huh?”
They both laughed. Jack then turned to Judy for the first
time. He slicked his paw over his head and tucked his ears.
“Jack Savage” He stated sticking out a paw as Nick stifled
“Judy Hopps .. Officer Judy Hopps” she replied trying to
“Oh that’s right, there was an article about you two online.
I never would have thought it was discussing my Nick Wilde.” Jack paused and
reached into his jacket pocket.
“Here Pibs, take this” Jack said as he fired a business card
to Nick like a shuriken. Nick snagged it out of the air and then examined the
embroidered black card.
“Look at you, being all professional” Nick teased
“Shoot me text, we’ll catch up over drinks. First rounds on
me Foxy.” Jack winked.
“It’s date then” Nick said twisting his ear sarcastically.
“Pleasure to meet you officer Hopps” Jack added over his
shoulder as he strutted into the precinct.
Nick smiled and shook his head. Judy was standing tapping her
“Care to explain, “Pibs”?”
Nick didn’t reply. He was looking up into the evening sky.
“Hello?” she asked growing more impatient.
“Oh, were you talking to me fluff?”
Judy took a deep breath.
“Yes, Nick. Who the hell was that?”
“Jack?” Nick asked as the smile returned to his face. “Oh me
and Savvy go wayyyyy back. He used to help me run scams in highschool. Me and
Jack had the world by the blueberries” Nick paused and then sighed “That is,
until he fell off the radar after we graduated. His aunt told me he got
recruited by some 3 letter agency and I haven’t seen or heard from him since.
Pffft, must have been 14 years until today.”
“So you went to highschool with the first rabbit field agent
hired by the ZIA?”
“I guess ? Jack always was ambitious.” Nick laughed to
himself “In more ways than one.”
Nick pulled his phone out and typed in the number from the
“Sooooo I guess we aren’t hanging out tonight ?” Judy asked.
Nick sucked his teeth and swore under his breath.
“I forgot were supposed to do a movie night tonight”
Judy was giving Nick her best puppy dog eyes.
“You’re killing me carrots, lemme take a rain-check and I’ll
make it up to you this weekend.” Nick said optimistically. Judy huffed.
“I guess you stupid fox.” Nick frowned as he looked down at
her disappointed face.
“I mean” Nick started pensively “if you really want you
could come out with Jack and I. if you don’t mind 3rd wheeling.”
Judy pursed her lips as she weighed her options.
“Tell you what Nick, text me before you love birds meet up and I’ll let you
Judy and Nick walked into the apartment, exhausted from another hard day of work at the ZPD.
"Ugh…“ Nick groaned. “My back is killing me.” Judy looked at his with a tired grin. “You can say that again.” Nick shook his head and walked into the restroom with another groan. Judy sat her hat onto the table and flopped onto the couch, sighing and closing her eyes. “Another successful say of making the world a better place!” She said to herself.
"Hey, Whiskers…“ Nick asked. Judy could tell he was uncomfortable. She opened her eyes and figured out why, gasping and flushing. Nick stood outside the bathroom door, shirtless. She blushed and covered her mouth. She could see every muscle on his chest, his fur glistening with water. "Would you mind… rubbing this on my back?” He asked with a flush, holding up a bottle of lotion “My doctor prescribed it for me…” Judy flushed and hummed. “Come on, Judy…” Nick pleaded with puppy eyes.
"Alright…“ Judy sighed with uncertainty. "C'mere.” She patted at her lap. Nick walked over and sat in her lap with a flop. “Here…” He said, handing her the lotion. “Back and Limb Pain Relief” Judy read. “Couldn’t have a shorter name?” She joked. Nick groaned in pain.
"Sorry…“ Judy sighed. Then she noticed his back, and gasped. Nick’s back was covered in old scars, barely noticeable with the fur grown over them. "Nick…” She said quietly. With a determined scowl she opened the lotion. “W-wait!” Nick said. “Doc said you need gloves if your gonna do it.” He handed her plastic gloves. Judy put them on and squirted some of the lotion onto her paws. Then she started rubbing it onto his back, being careful to spread it all across his back. Nick sighed in audible relief. “Oh yea.” He said.
"That’s working wonders.“ Judy smiled, but she noticed a scent in the air that made her blood run cold. "Nick… what’s in this lotion?” She calmly asked. “I have no idea.” Nick replied. “Do you smell that?” She asked. Nick sniffed the air. “Night Howlers? But the new mayor banned those in Zootopia. He said. Judy smelled her gloves. "Nick it’s in the lotion!” She exclaimed. She carefully slipped of the gloves and threw them aside. Nick jumped up. “No! That can’t!-” He grabbed the lotion from Judy. “Night Howler?! This must be half the lotion!” He threw it in the trash. “How?”
"Was your doctor a goat?“ Judy asked desperately. "No, but he might of sympathized with Bellwether!” Nick said, his breathing getting hoarse. “Nick, you can control it!” Judy exclaimed, backing away. “Th-this isn’t the incident with Bellwether!” Nick said, falling to his knees. “G-go! Just go to the hospital and get the antidote! Get help!” “Nick!” Judy exclaimed. “You’ll be ok!”, she said, rushing for the door. She went to open the door, but it was jammed. She grabbed it and tried forcing it, and she heard Nick growling behind her.
"H-hang in there, Nick!“ She said nervously. Then she remembered. A few weeks ago, she was given a vial of the antidote by the new mayor, ‘in case your Fox friend goes savage’ he had said. She was going to throw it out, but decided otherwise, in case they encountered a savage criminal. The vial was in the fridge. There was a swoosh of air, and Judy dived out of the way as Nick slammed into the door, snarling. She turned and saw his eyes gleaming dangerously.
"NICK!” She gasped. He snarled and jumped at her. She ducked under him and jumped to her feet as he crashed into the floor, jumping and scrambling to get a grip on the slippery floor. Nick stood in between her and the fridge.
"Nick-“ She started,but he rushed her, knocking her to the floor and snapping at her neck. She blocked his muzzle with her paws and kicked him away, but before she could recover he was on top of her again, growling and snarling. She had to use all her strength to keep his sharp teeth away from her. His claws dug into her as his paws pinned her down. He lunged at her face, barely missing ripping a chunk of her cheek of thanks to her quickly pushing his jaw away. Quite suddenly, Nick ceased his attack, visibly confused and smelling at the air.
Judy wondered for a quick moment what he was doing, but realized, she had to be covered in his scent. Nick was a very pawsy and affectionate partner and roommate, to say at the least, and they had spent many a night snuggling with one another in bed. Two days ago, he asked if he could ‘mark’ her. “It’s just to tell other guys… that you’re taken…” Nick had said nervously. “We’ve only had four dates.” Judy told him. “That’s a major step in our relationship….” “It’s up to you…” He told her. In the end she had agreed, and he nuzzled her with his cheek, covering her in a special scent from a gland in is cheek cells.
Her thoughts were interrupted by Nick gently nosing at her face with obvious anger and confusion. This was obviously prey, but it was marked as his mate! He shook his head, growling in confusion. He was at a loss, naturally He would have eaten the rabbit… but the rabbit was his lover? It WAS female. Judy was paralyzed as Nick studied her with his sharp, gleaming eyes. His beautiful emerald eyes. She couldn’t help look at them. Nick snarled, and she eeped, shutting her eyes. She felt something lapping at her neck. something wet. She opened her eyes to see Nick licking her neck. She let out a nervous laugh.
She gasped as he bit into her neck. She grimaced and waited for him to pierce her skin, but it never happened, instead he let go, lapping gently at the bite marks before biting at her neck again. She didn’t know what he was doing, but she enjoyed it greatly, and couldn’t help moaning and shuddering.
Nick let go of her neck and studied her. She clearly enjoyed his love bites, and that was odd coming from a prey animal. He decided, against his better judgement, that if the bunny was his mate, there was really nothing he could do about it. He nudged her face and licked it again.
Judy blushed as Nick licked her, his body keeping her pinned to the ground. “N-Nick..” She pleaded. He growled and gently bit her nose. It was obvious then he wasn’t going to let her go. She lay there with him, pinned for half an hour, with him licking and nuzzling her, until finally he fell asleep.
She crawled out from under him and snuck over to the fridge, trying to wake her limbs, She carefully opened the fridge, grateful the light was broken, and grabbed the vial. She tiptoed back to him, and she injected it into his arm.Nick awoke with a yelp, and Judy jumped back. He turned to her, but before he could do anything he passed out, slumping to the floor. Judy grabbed a blanket and covered him up, sighing. “He’s going to have one heck of a story from me tomorrow.”
