Sinker burst into the pups’ pen and everyone surrounded him immediately.
He shook with excitment. “Oh…oh g-g-g-GUYYYYYS!!! IT was… s-s-sooooooo s-sca-SCARY!!!! The- the the THING tried to… to.. KILL MEEE!!!” He flopped over in dramatic affect.
Vik hovered over him and raised an eyebrow. “Wow… that was dramatic.” He said straight faced. Bobber would usually be quick to comfort the suffering pups, but when it came to sinker and his dramatizing… ehh..
“It.. it closed around my NECK, and it pulled me into it’s precisive domains of dreariness!!!” He shuddered at the thought and took a quick sip of water.
Vik paused, one paw still in the air. “Wait a second… ” He looked at Sinker and sniffed his neck. “Yep, yes, I know it is. I’m sure of it.” He raised his chin in the air and smiled. “You’ve been wearing the Loosh.” Everyone stopped and stared at Vik.
“The… Loosh?” Bobber asked, staring at Vik, confused. Zag snorted, “Hogwash! There’s no such word. Or .. thing. It was called an Eash.” Bobber’s gaze pivoted over to Zag. “An… Eash? What is this Looeash you guys are talking about?” Sinker looked equally confused.
Sinker raised his head in the air, “All I know, is it’s one deadly machine. And she’s usin’ it for her powers.” Bobber licked Sinker, “Master wouldn’t do that. She’s not like that. She’s nice! And I don’t think she has … powers.”
Vik jumped in, “Oh yes she does! She has a LOT of power. She’s AWESOME!!” Bobber stared at Vik. “Now who’s being dramatic?” Bobber mumbled.
Zag just watched them all. “You guys know, she’s actually just… well.. she’s using it for her secret plans to capture all of us some day. I hate to agree with HIM,” He shoved Vik in the shoulder, “but… she does have powers. And she’s gonna turn against us!”
“No no NO.” Vik said, pushing Zag back. “She’s NICE… N-O-O-S-E! Or .. something like that. .. The Loosh-”
“is used for GOOD purposes! She TOLD me so.. ” Vik smiled.
Sinker looked at him doubtfully. “She didn’t even tell ME what it was. All I know is that the Loosh is scary.”
“It’s an EASH.” Zag cut in. No one was listening, so he walked over to the corner to go to sleep.
“So Vik, tell us your adventure!!” Bobber asked, jumping around excitedly. Vik took a deep breath and Zag rolled his eyes.
“Well.. Master came and opened the gate. THEN, she let me out, and I ran STRAIGHT to her. Then we tore across the yard, and ran with her, the wind blowing my hair around.”
“This is boring.” Sinker added in, “I want an adventure.” Vik gave him a glare, and continued. “As we made it down to the field, I saw something. It was GIANT, and GREEN! BUT I KNEW I could out power it.” He flexed his muscles. “I stood my ground and protected Master. It would have scared you to death, Sinker.” He added quickly. Sinker opened his mouth, but Vik continued. “As we neared it, It turned, and I saw a figure inside. It was pretty scary… but not for ME. I protected Master til we got back and then she told me how good of a boy I was, and put me away.” He finished triumphantly, and climbed off the pile of dirt. “see, it’s not scary, Sinker’s just a wimp.”
“Am NOT.” Sinker retorted. “I was just trying to tell you the TRUTH of it, so that Bobber didn’t get nearly KILLED by it, like me! Here, I’ll tell you MY story.” He cleared his throat. “Master got me out on this thing, and called me. Of COURSE I didn’t want to come, I’d rather bark all night at Auntie and Cousin Flare! But NOOO…so she pulled me to that GATE, and out. I jumped around, but she never let go! I thought for SURE I could out power her, but NO, she’s got POWERS, I tell you-POOOOWERS!!!! And then-”
Zag walked out of his corner and growled at Sinker, making him back off the ‘stage’ and fall in the water pan. Zag smirked, and walked onto the dirt pile. Bobber helped Sinker out of the water pan and scowled at Zag. “I believe you need to hear MY story. Sinker’s is just lame.. It’s pretty much the same as Vik’s…but I was MUCH better than that little…. thing.” He glared at the large hero, much more handsome than his scrawny self. “When I got back, master told me a story, and told me how amazing I was at lying down, and at walking. She was SOOO happy with me. She barely even told Vik that he was GOOD. Then she let me off the Eash.”
“Loosh! It’s a -”
“And put me back in the pen. And I come to her every SINGLE NIGHT. See, she LIKES ME.”
“YEAH RIGHT! You won’t EVER come to her, and she chased you around forever and EVER tonight!” Sinker added in.
“Yeah!” Vik said. Bobber just backed away, sensing an argument on the way. He decided it was time to get some sleep..and he hoped that whenever the Loosh- or Eash- came to get him, that he could face it as Vik did. Although Vik was more courageous than him.
