Notes: For primeval100: challenge 345: Comfort and Joy.
Part of the Moss series and follows on from Advent







Comfort






Moss let out a miserable whimper and curled up under Becker’s desk. He’d already thrown up once, much to Lester’s disgust as he happened to be walking past at the time.

“Poor thing,” Becker said, not knowing what to do to make him feel better.

“It’s his own fault for eating an advent calendar,” Matt pointed out. “That much cardboard is not good for him.”

“He didn’t eat it all.”

“No, just most of it. Hils, he’ll be fine,” Matt assured him. “Just be thankful that Jess had already eaten most of the chocolate or he would have felt worse.”




Joy






Jess picked up the wrapped parcel on her desk, tearing the paper off as quickly as she could. Deluxe Chocolate truffle advent calendar. She resisted the urge to jump up and down and clap her hands with glee. She loved chocolate truffles. Well, any sort of chocolate, but truffles… Becker knew her too well.

She hurried off to thank Becker and to check on Moss. As annoyed as she was with the cub, she still felt sorry for him – the poor thing looked so miserable.

And then chocolate. After all, there were 17 days of chocolates to catch up on.

Poor Moss, hopefully he'll feel better soon.

Good thing Becker made it up to Jess and got her new chocolate. Although if she eats 17 days' worth in a row, she might start feeling sick too!

Hmm, I doubt that Lester would have any sympathy if she called in ill after eating it all!

Between the chocolate and Moss's pathetic expression, Jess has forgiven him already!

Moss will be fine, and Jess has forgiven him nbow that she's got more chocolate.

Poor pup. Paper products don't digest very well!
But glad to hear he missed out on most of the chocolate, but now Jess is looking at a tummy-ache!
Chocolate truffles - *drools*

Maybe it'll teach him not to eat things off people's desks...

Hope Moss feels better soon! Jess is certainly feeling better now - but she'd better put the calendar in a safe place...

Moss will be fine soon... as long as Jess keeps her new advent calendar out of reach.

Meep. Poor Moss. Thank goodness the chocolate was mostly gone.
Lucky Jess though *g*

Jess strikes me as the kind of person who might sneakily eat most of the chocolates before she was supposed to...

I hope Jess remembers to keep them out of Moss's way this time!

I don't think she'll make that same mistake twice!

Moss will be fine - he just ate too much cardboard.

Oh, poor Moss *pets him carefully*. And Becker seems to have cheered Jess up, at least.

I expect that all is forgiven now that Jess has more chocolate.

LOL. I see Becker did upgrade Jess' Calendar. Poor Moss, though.

Jess is pleased with the replacement, and Moss will be back to his usual cheerful self in no time.
