Tail Petting Service

Chapter Text

"Are you sure this isn't a mistake?" Nick asked. He couldn't believe that they chose him after all the restrictions he listed.

"Absolutely, you're wanted three doors to your left." Lex was a relative of Yax. "This is what you wanted, isn't it?"

"Well yes." Nick rationalized his doubts away when he first signed up for the service. Mammals paid for massages all the time. Someone was just paying to pet his tail.

"Go on then."

Nick walked three doors to the left. He found a room with a bed and a television in it. The client wanted to watch a movie while petting his tail. That mammal was willing to pay and he didn't even need to take his clothes off. The only downside was that he had to be here an hour in advance.

An hour passed quickly as he watched some of the more exotic films they had. Someone was finally going to arrive. A rabbit walked through the door.

"What are you doing here?" They both shouted at each other. He couldn't believe his eyes that Judy was the one to walk through the door and she was naked.

Judy immediately covered herself as best she can with her paws.

"Well?" Nick smirked.

"You first."

Nick felt that Judy was going to leave if he didn't explain himself. "Well, I found out about this place over the internet. It seemed too good to be true, but I signed up anyway. Your turn."

Judy moved closer to him. His heart pounded as she advanced. She grabbed his ear then whispered, "I'm working on an undercover assignment." He could feel the warmth of her breath on his ear.

The explanation felt so ridiculous that he had to restrain himself from laughing too much. "Oh really? I'll ask the Chief myself. You're a really bad liar, you know that?" Nick snickered.

Judy clenched her teeth. "Damn it, Nick."

"Alright, why don't we just watch a movie?" Nick said. It was unlikely that Judy could pretend he was someone else. Although this made him imagine how it would've gone if he wasn't here.

"Really, Nick?" Judy said incredulously.

"Well, do you have a better idea? Didn't you come here to relax?"

"Karma, what have I done to deserve this?"

"Well, maybe you shouldn't worship a fox as your goddess. This place does have like every movie available."

"Fine." Judy set the room temperature below zero.

"Hey! That's cold!" Nick complained as he felt the rapid temperature drop.

"Well, there are blankets." Judy browsed the selections on the screen. "Wait, someone made a movie about us?"

"That's the sixth one just last year. Why are you surprised?"

Judy selected Zootopia.

"Out of all the movies you could watch, you're going to watch Zootopia? Come on, Carrots."

"I am paying for this, so shut it." Judy joined him underneath the mountain of blankets. She took possession of his tail.

Nick had no interest in watching the movie so he did his best to fall asleep while Judy stroked his tail in a calming manner.
