Drabble #110 - Favourite (Double-Drabble)

.



Favourite (Double-Drabble)

Characters/Pairings: Bikky, Carol
Warnings: None
Timeline: During the manga
Spoilers: Maybe a little for vol. 1


"Carol, didn't the teach say we should stay on the path? There are some damn nasty swampy spots around here!", Bikky said as Carol tentatively stepped beside the path. He quickly grabbed her hand as a precaution.

They were in summer camp again, just strolling through the woods - although they had been told not to go there without an adult.

"Since when do we listen to teachers?", Carol giggled, "I just want to see if swamps really -"

Suddenly the ground gave in and swallowed half of her foot. "Oh no! Pull, Bikky!"

"I'm trying!"

"Pull harder!"

"I can't!"

"Sure you can!"

But pulling didn't help. Carol was stuck.

"Why don't you take off your shoe?", Bikky suggested.

"And leave it here?! No way!"

"Just for a minute! So we can try and pull it out together!"

"That sounds better. Wait a sec..."

Unluckily though, as soon as Carol freed her foot, the swamp made a sucking sound and the shoe disappeared.

"Wow! That was freaky!", Bikky exclaimed way too cheerfully. "Guess that swamp really is swampy, isn't it?"

But Carol didn't look all that happy. "Oh nooo, that was my favourite shoe!"

Bikky rolled his eyes. Girls and their shoes!


(Author's Notes: And now Bikky has to take Carol on a piggyback ride back to camp. After all, a girl shouldn't hurt her feet on a scratchy forest floor, right? And then the kids need to make up a story about the missing shoe...)

I hope she brought a back-up pair of shoes to camp. Knowing her, she probably brought two or three.

At least they didn't encounter a bear while her foot was stuck!

I hope so too - otherwise Bikky will just have to carry her around for the rest of the trip!

That would have been tricky. Maybe Carol could have thrown her other shoe at the bear - she doesn't need it anymore, anyway! :D

Thank you! :)

Carol, fancy wearing your favourite shoes in a forest with swampy bits! That wasn't very sensible!

Sometimes Carol acts spontaneously without really thinking about the consequences. She's not much better than Bikky in that respect. Let's hope this incident will teach her a lesson! :D

Thank you! :)
