Tail Petting Service

Chapter Text

Chief Bogo video called her, "Good news, we've apprehended the suspects within Tundratown. You're now safe to return to Zootopia."

"That's a relief. I'll let them know."

"Can I speak to Wilde, Wolfard, and Fangmeyer?"

"They're not nearby at the moment."

"And why would that be?"

"The threat felt non-existent so we split up. My mother's romantic plots ensnared both Wolfard and Fangmeyer and I don't know where Nick is."

Chief Bogo sighed. "I'll overlook this incident. Return to Zootopia within two weeks."

"Yes, sir." She expected a harsher reprimand from Chief Bogo.

A few moments later, before she could rejoin the festivities on the farm, she received another call, "Judy, help! Call Mr. Big–" This was from Nick.

The call ended before she could hear more. He sounded distressed. She wondered what Mr. Big did. They were on friendly terms or so she thought. Without much choice, she called Mr. Big, "Hello, Nick told me to call you, and he says he needs help." She tried to sound as neutral as possible.

"He spurned your affections and went out with one of your sisters. This is unacceptable."

Judy's heart sunk when she learned that Nick went out with one of her sisters, but she tried to keep her voice unchanged. "That didn't happen. What did you do? Don't hurt him."

"If you want to avoid a bloodbath, go to the Dancing Leaf on Wednesday, stay away from it until then. Nick will remain unharmed if you follow my instructions. Should you change your mind, just pretend this never happened."

The call ended before she could ask any questions. She had no idea what the Dancing Leaf even was. It turned out that it was a massage parlor within Bunnyburrow.

As much as it pained her, she had to tell Chief Bogo about what happened to Nick. It wouldn't be right to gamble with his life just because she was reluctant. Even though Mr. Big said there wouldn't be bloodshed, she took precautions just the same.

A team of sixty officers was with her, ready to storm the establishment. She advanced into the complex with a team beside her.

"Nick?" she yelled.

"Judy? What are you doing here?" Nick yelled from a room.

"Saving you."

"Pinch me."

"What happened?"

"He said it was going to be my turn tomorrow. I had to watch everyone while they 'worked.' Have you found Iris yet?"

"Not yet, come, let's search for her."

There were young bunnies in some of the rooms which she directed towards the other officers with her. Although, quite a few were extremely hostile that the police officers tranquilized them.

"Iris," Judy yelled as she moved from room to room.

"Judy?" Iris yelled back.

Her sister was in a room with her fur disheveled and unkempt.

"We're here to rescue you," Judy said.

"Why didn't you come sooner?"

"I didn't know. I'm sorry. What happened?"

Iris recounted everything that happened to her, and how her captors forced her to service mammals for money. "I thought that Nick was dead." There were guards so she couldn't leave.

"Come, let's get out of here."

Judy felt guilty on the way home when Iris elaborated on what happened during her captivity. There was no bloodshed just like Mr. Big promised and Nick was unharmed, but she still wished that she could've made a different choice. Her sister suffered because she chose to listen to him.
