"Wuby wuv daddeh! Am bestest daddeh in wohwe wowl!"
>have a cute and adorable fluffy foal named Ruby who I adopted from a shelter
>always wanted to go to Hawaii. See mauna kea
>watch the whales. snorkel
>see the bikini babes. see the hula dancers
>been meaning to make this trip to Hawaii. Planned for it for over a year. Even took time time off from work for this
>Can't take Ruby with me - fluffies are not allowed into Hawaii for the same reason ferrets aren't
>I live alone, so I can only rely on a friend to check in on Ruby once in a while
>family lives in another state
>don't really trust my neighbours after an an argument with them a while back
>Ruby is only a foal. Fluffies take about a year to become fully adult
>have to make sure she's okay.
>as Ruby would say "Wuby am onwy a wittwe babbeh"
>Ruby is not big yet, so I don't need to prepare a playpen for her yet
>a box will do
>made the box to be as nice as possible
>gave her a ball to play with, a bed, a litterbox, water, and enough fluffy chow for Ruby to eat for at least a month
"Can have skettis?"
>sorry Ruby, no skettis until I come back
>she sighs, but she understands
>trip is going okay. everything is fine
[i]"At least 7 cases of coronavirus confirmed in Hawaii as governor urges preparedness"[/i]
>COVID-19 has broken out worldwide
>travel restrictions throughout the world
>had attended a party the night before
>got into a litle *ahem* hanky-panky
>turns out, the woman was in contact with a man who tested positive for Coronavirus
>I am being detained for at least a week. Quarantined
>my job is going to be affected
>Ruby is all alone at home
>immediately called a friend of mine
"Dave, I need you to do me a favour. Please check on Ruby"
>Dave is reluctant
"Why do I have to check your shitrat for you again? You're lucky I'm even doing this for you."
"Please man, just get some food and water for her. I'm going to be delayed for a little bit longer."
"Urgh, fine. But you owe me!"
>I'd get someone else, but I don't really have any friends other than Dave
>if I can even call him a friend
>really pains me that Dave hates fluffies so much
>called Dave a few days later
"Yeah I helped your shitrat. Gave her new water and food and everything. But that shitrat really does shit a lot."
>the fuck you mean
"Her poopie place is filled to the brim with SHIT. Absolutely disgusting. I have no idea how you are able to stand the smell of shitrats."
>the fuck dude, you didn't even clean her litterbox?!
"Hey fuck you man! I only agreed to change the water and add food! You never said anything about cleaning!"
>I'm starting to get desperate. I'll pay him more
"Fuck that. You already owe me big time. In fact, this is last time I'm doing any favour for you related to shitrats. Go fuck yourself, and you better have my money when I get back."
>god, fuck Dave
>I think I'll just move back to my parents place at this rate. Or maybe find a new place
>Go to the toilet. No more toilet paper.
>every fucking shop is clear of toilet paper because of paranoid people buying stock, thinking Armageddon is approaching or something
>with no other choice, had to use a face towel to wipe my ass
>there's some detergent/soap in my hotel room, but I don't think I can be comfortable with using this same cloth to wash my face
>as I think about that, I hate to think that Wuby is going to have sleep with a lot more poopies.
>oh god no
>I developed a fever
>fuck, fuck FUCK
>got checked out by the orderly. its not the coronavirus, thank god
>but the fact that I have a fever means that my quarantine has been extended
>called my job. Boss is not too pleased about this turn of events
>most likely going to lose my job because I didn't return home in time
>stuck in a hospital room, while recovering
>food has always been the same. Gruel.
>none of the nice meals I had at the start of my trip
>the same food every day. the same nummies
>been suffering from diarrhea for a few days in a row
>must have been a viral infection related to the fever
>been making the same "wawa poopies"
>the same poopies, the same nummies
>I think about my poor Ruby, stuck in that little box, stuck with eating the same Fluffy Chow, and having to wade in a box completely covered in shit
>I can't sleep. I hate to think that the companion that I had for about half a year, who kept me company during my most difficult days, is now going to die alone, malnourished, and covered in filth
>I have access to medical facilities and everything, but Ruby has no one
>I am desperate. I call my neighbours
"Why the fuck should we help you? You're a rude son of a bitch. Always shouting. You don't deserve anything."
>I'm always angry. Always uptight. Always finding fault with people and arguing with them
>I think thats why I got Ruby. Needed a companion.
>they call them biotoys, but lately fluffieswere also developed as emotional support aids.
>Ruby has been there for me the whole time in the past 6 months, even though she is only a foal
>and now I can't be there for her
"Its not your fault. Its just the way things are."
>thats what the nurse says
>but its not right. Its not right at all
>Ruby's food and water is going to run out soon
>oh God. Please God. Protect Ruby.
>quarantine has cleared
>I can finally go home
>Dave is not picking up my calls
>neighbours are refusing to talk to me as well
>is my fluffy okay?
>I think of one of the things she said to me
"Daddeh am bestest daddeh in whowe wowl! Daddeh wiww awways twy!"
>I remember her as a babbeh, and hearing her say her first words after a week
>and hearing her talk full sentences in a month
>but she's still a foal
>and yet, in those six months when she was a foal, she got me through a course I was finding difficult with
>comforted me when I argued with my parents and workmates
>gave me someone to talk to after the shitty days at work
>I did buy her for cheap from the shelter, but to me, Ruby is the only thing I have in the world. It makes me regret taking the trip
>no, I shouldn't think that. In that one week, I got to do the things I always wanted
>the Hawaii trip was worth it
>but I pray that Ruby is okay
>please God. Please let there be a miracle.
>I open the door. There is silence
>I want to cry
"ALOHA! I'm home!"
"Daddeh finawwy home!"
>she smells of shit. most of her food is gone
>but, in the little box, I can see little drawings
>Ruby, in her boredom, had to use her feces to draw things to make herself feel better
>I can see the little drawings of flowers, and a little fence
>and I see a drawing of a man, and his fluffy
>I let Ruby climbed up to me
>I'm covered in her shit, but its okay
"Fwuffy missed yu so much! Fwuffy su happeh nao!"
>I'm happy too
>I give Ruby a bath. Fluffies usually hate water, but they also like to "smeww pretty"
>I cook the best possible plate of spaghetti I can for a little fluffy
>(well, I had to have a bath first. I was covered in shit)
>but I'm happy. Despite everything, despite the virus, and the world going mad, my little fluffy is okay
>I turn on the news
"Coronavirus deaths pass 6,500 worldwide"
>I flick the channel
"Dow records worst point drop in history"
>I flick again
"Now on FwuffTV! Powa Wangas: Bwockbild!"
>Ruby is excited. its her favourite show
"Wuv Powa wangas!"
>mine too, I guess
>we watch the three fluffies wave their bwockies around
"Its mofeen tiem!"
>the SFX is cheap, but if you're a kid, or a fluffy, its plain ol' fun
>the powa wangas are going up against their biggest villain
"Stuppeh Dummeh Munstah Mummah! Wanga give mummah sowwy huwties!"
>the evil monstah mummah throws her spear from her moon base, towards the planet earth, while bellowing
"MAKE MY MONSTAH GROW!"
>the rangers call out for their robots
"Fwuffs nee' Bwockie meka-zod powah! NAO!"
>its stupid. its silly
>but Ruby is happy
>thats all that matters for now
