Feed a Borrower a Cookie
The characters in this are actually from another story I’ve been brainstorming and thought I would include for some practice. That and they are just so darn cute. Here are the ages so no one gets confused.
Again, not a lot of focus on eyes but still mentioned a few times. Enjoy!
Cathy shook as the giant pair of blue eyes focused on her. She had been caught out in the open and was now cornered between the human and the tissue box she had been trying to take from. She shouldn’t have even been out here in the first place, she was too young to be borrowing out on her own. But both her parents had come down with a cold and she–along with the rest of her siblings–had wanted to help them out.
The three of them had snuck out late at night, taking all the necessary cautions they saw their dad take before he ever went out to borrow. Mainly making sure the human was asleep. And he had been asleep, just, no one had thought of the chance of him waking up.
Now Cathy was trapped, the human’s intense gaze making her legs feel like jelly. The human would catch her now, at any moment. She would be killed, or eaten, just like all the stories she’s heard. She noticed the human move closer and she turned her head away, curling in on herself.
At least Ladle and Toby were okay.
