What if a human and borrower grow up together in an orphanage and love each other like sibs! The borrower's been having a bad week, so the human tries to steal some of their favorite food to make them feel better. They get caught though by the shop owner, who calls for the guards, and the giant is taken away while their tiny friend is waiting for them back at the orphanage. Once the tiny learns what happens, it's up to them leave the safety of the orphanage and go save their friend.
Oh wow, that sounds like an excellent plot for an adventure story- a borrower traversing the big world to rescue their human friend!
But also I love the idea of the borrower finally rescuing the human and the human expects them to be all “omg are you ok???”
But the borrower just storms over and yells “you could have just given me some of your food, you dingus!!! I literally eat crumbs, why did you steal an ENTIRE cake!”
“B-because it was carrot cake….and that’s your favourite…”
“WHAT!? WHA- ahhh actually that’s…that’s real cute. Thanks. Don’t ever scare me like this again though because I will destroy you.”
Much affection follows I’m sure, because the borrowers probably really touched by the thoughtful if not dangerous act of kindness.
But they make sure the human never steals again- well, never gets caught at least….
