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*)

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

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

Hahahaha! Such a bad idea, James *g*

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

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.

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....

I doubt it will end well.

But who could resist Connor's puppy dog eyes?

Unfortunately, Lester can't!

LOL, really a bad idea, LEster, babies do grow up, you know? ^_^

I'm sure Lester will have changed Connor's mind by then.

ROFL! But yes, a truly awful idea!
ebonyfeather

I'm sure Connor will realise how bad an idea is was when the critter gets a bit bigger.
