Sticks and Snails and Puppy Dog Tails
SEQUEL TO Brimstone Tears~@~
After the block-burning incident, Lucifer was no longer allowed to play with flammable objects.
Instead, he contented himself with playing with his best friend, Zeke. And Zeke's favorite toy, a little white sheep doll with curly fur.
"Mine!" Zeke said, clinging tightly to the sheep.
"Share!" Lucifer countered, jerking the sheep out of Zeke's hands and hugging it.
And immediately found out that cute and cuddly wasn't want he wanted anyway. It made him *itch.*
"MINE!" Zeke shrieked, and jerked the sheep doll back.
Lucifer let him have it, and watched as Zeke fell back on his butt and started crying again.
Lucifer wrapped his hand around Zeke's wrist and tugged. "Let's go dig. Come on. We can find some snakes. Put them in Lionel's pudding."
Zeke sniffled. "O--okay." He followed Lucifer out, eyes wide.
