A really bad idea


“No way! Just take the bloody thing back where you found it.” Lester frowned when Connor turned the puppy-eyed expression on him. “That won’t work; you are not keeping it.”

Connor looked at the tiny future predator that was cowering, trembling, inside the box he carried.

“But the anomaly closed! It’s alone and scared and hasn’t tried to hurt me. Maybe if it grows up with us it’ll be friendly.”

Lester eyed the little creature and felt his resolve weakening. It was only a baby, and it looked so pathetic and helpless…

He sighed. This was a really bad idea.

A really, really bad idea! Unless it's Dave and he just wants to be friends!

Awesome Dave icon!

I'm sure that, once he doesn't have Connor pleading with him, Lester will come to his senses.

I'm afraid I'd have to side with Lester on this one. Tiny predators become big predators with big teeth. Yeah, Lester, get him a puppy.

That's probably his plan- his way to get a puppy instead!

Eeek! It's not going to look pathetic and helpless for long! Lester's right. (But you've made me feel sorry for the poor baby predator *g*)

But it's so little and helpless...

The babies would be very cute..... but so are baby crocodiles!

Baby crocodiles are kind of cute... from a distance.

Connor's equivalent of "But it followed me home....."

Nice one!

And of course, Lester will give in to Connor's puppy-eyes

lol I can totally see that happening.

And of course, Lester will eventually give in to Connor...

Adorable but deadly :D

Let's just hope that Connor figures that out sooner rather than later.

Hahahaha! Such a bad idea, James *g*
ebonyfeather
Oct. 29th, 2012 07:26 pm (UTC)
it is, but he's not going to say no to Connor's puppy-eyed pleading...

Oh blimey! Well, I suppose he can try!
ebonyfeather
Oct. 29th, 2012 07:28 pm (UTC)
I'm sure he'll change his mind when it grows up a bit.

Poor baby - applies to any one of 'em. Talk about disasters waiting to happen. Would love to see what happened next.
ebonyfeather
Oct. 29th, 2012 07:29 pm (UTC)
It may be a disaster in the making, but Connor can't resist helpless critters, and Lester can't resist Connor...

LOL! But oh dear....
ebonyfeather
Oct. 29th, 2012 07:29 pm (UTC)
I doubt it will end well.

But who could resist Connor's puppy dog eyes?
ebonyfeather
Oct. 29th, 2012 07:30 pm (UTC)
Unfortunately, Lester can't!

But who can resist a cute, helpless baby critter...?

LOL, really a bad idea, LEster, babies do grow up, you know? ^_^
ebonyfeather
Oct. 29th, 2012 07:32 pm (UTC)
I'm sure Lester will have changed Connor's mind by then.

ROFL! But yes, a truly awful idea!
ebonyfeather
Oct. 29th, 2012 07:33 pm (UTC)
I'm sure Connor will realise how bad an idea is was when the critter gets a bit bigger.

Oct. 12th, 2012 08:42 pm (UTC)
LOL, Lester can't say no to the puppy-dog-eyes-of-doom, even when he should.
ebonyfeather
Oct. 29th, 2012 07:34 pm (UTC)
Lester really does need to learn to say no...
knitekat
Oct. 29th, 2012 07:40 pm (UTC)
*nods* But it is difficult to say no to those puppy-dog eyes ;)

Noooo! Lester, I know Connor can be convincing with the puppy-dog thing, but raising a future predator is just asking for trouble.
ebonyfeather
Oct. 29th, 2012 07:35 pm (UTC)
It probably will be a huge mistake- let's just hope they realise before the critter grows up!

>Maybe if it grows up with us it'll be friendly."
Far stranger things *have* happened.

excellent drabble.

if I were baby!dave, I'd be more worried about Connor's menagerie than Lester.
ebonyfeather
Oct. 29th, 2012 07:37 pm (UTC)
The baby predator could be raised with Sid and Nancy! The three of them would cause chaos.

I can't help feeling Lester is right.
ebonyfeather
Oct. 29th, 2012 07:38 pm (UTC)
He probably is- it just might take him a while to convice Connor of that.

That would be a difficult situation to have to make a decision about! Glad I don't have to make it *G*

Helpless critter and Connor's puppy eyes versus common sense... I think they'll be getting a new pet!

Oh, crap! That is a really, really bad idea! Not even Connor's puppy eyes shoud be able to win that argument.
ebonyfeather
Oct. 29th, 2012 07:39 pm (UTC)
Let's just hope they realise how bad the idea is before the critter gets bigger.

Poor Lester- he knows it's a bad idea, but against a helpless baby critter and Connor's puppy eyes? No chance.

Uh-oh! Bad idea...but who knows? Connor could be right!

A trained predator might work? Hmm...they shall call him Dave! lol

Sorted Ebs! Nice one.
