Scruff released Jay from the hug gently and turned towards Lucky, consciously trying to make his eyes appear bigger in his 'mask'. "You're not going to try it, are you,"
"Shut up, inner me," he told himself, holding his handpaws together. "You wouldn't do that would you, Mr Lucky," he asked. "We're your friends..."

Naaa... They can't catch me unless i want them too.
Lycky swishes his tail, twords the vixen.
Now my sweet. you would not be suggesting that i would turn you all in, to get a get out of trouble pass to be used at a later time..
Kyndra's hand darts out and catches Lucky by the ear.
"Of course they ain't. And you ain't gonna snitch neither, are you, sweetie?" she asks, her voice saccharine.

Caleb disengages the vixen's tail from the baby and replaces it with a rubber teething ring.
"Sorry, ma'am. Do you want a towel to dry off with?" he apologises before turning back to David.
"Well, I'm definitely happy to talk to the other human for you. Who are they, exactly?"

Sam, meanwhile, feeling restless, has made herself useful by carrying Caleb's abandoned painting supplies into the church.

"Thank you, and yes please, if it's not too much trouble" Selene smiled awkwardly, still recovering from the little surprise.
"They claimed, and appeared to be animal control officers. Though their methods were ...... questionable, Lucky seems to be quite familiar with them, so for now I believe they are officers"

"They are rather set on their side," David advised quietly, "although willing to talk. The main sticking point appears to be timing. They think we should take it up with the person who may have created Jay after she is returned, our fear is that, by the time that's cleared, she will have 'vanished'. Our hope is to have the discussions with them NOW. Then the situation may be resolved to the benefit of all."

Lucky throws up his paws..
Oh NOW you git it..

They were trying to tell you that they were on your side, but you have to go through proper channels.

But Nooooo you have to be difficult, confrontational. going to have a hard time getting them to want to work with you now.

Sam laughs bitterly.
"Call me crazy, Lucky, but I'm rather disinclined to work wit' someone who storms in wavin' a gun around everywhere. Especially when you've prejudiced dem against me by lyin' about me beatin' you up."


Caleb rummages in the diaper bag and offers Selene a packet of wet wipes and a clean, dry towel.

"So, who DID create her?' Caleb asks. "Who does own her? Who do we need to talk to?"

"Hey, Caleb, just a thought. Maybe you should start painting while you talk. That way if they bring tracker dogs when they come they won't be able to pick up Jay's scent if we have to hide her." Kyndra suggests.

"Great idea, babe." Caleb agrees. "Let's start with the vestibule. You wanna grab a brush while we talk? You can borrow my spare pair of overalls if you want, and of course we got a whole box of gloves to keep the paint off your paws and out of your fur, mister, er... I'm sorry, I didn't get your name before." the human falters as he talks to David.

"We honestly don't know, sir," David said accurately, in regards to the question about Jay. He smiled down at the little Jackalope. "She just wandered in to our lives." He straightened up again. "And of course I'll help out where I can. How about you, Lucky? Up for some painting? Oh,," he added, almost as an afterthought, "the name's David, sir. David Campbell." he offered a large paw.

Scruff hoped Lucky and Sam weren't going to come to blows.

They were showing her off as a special Zoo exhibit. We would need to go back there to ask which lab made her.
Or she could tell us who made her, maybe she had a product tag somewhere.

You are as Lucky as Me there.. Animal control has no pet trackers. they are not that large of an organization.

An just what color are we going to paint the jackalope? where they wouldn't still know what she is?

"The animal control officers, while not our source of trouble, still proved themselves problematic due to their unwillingness to listen." Selene finally spoke up as she accepted the wipes as well as the towel "Thank you"
"We attempted a negotiation, but our words fell on deaf ears. Regardless, since Lucky seems to know what I was hoping to get from them anyway, they're no longer needed."
The vixen then turned to Lucky, her eyes lacking any kind of emotions, or hints of what was going on in her mind "Lucky, you said you saw Jay at a zoo? Can you lead me there?"

Yes, BUT!
The Zoo is located in the older part of the city. Were we will need to be leashed, collared an escorted to get around.


He looks over to David and Sam.
Those two will probably need to be muzzled as well.

"No need" Selene replied dismissively "We'll go there at night. Just you and me. Large group will risk being seen"

"I don't know about her, Lucky, but we can paint you yellow." Sam mutters under her breath.

"Ooooor... We could just call the zoo and ask them." Caleb points out, pulling his phone from his pocket and googling the number.

Meanwhile, the vet has arrived and Kyndra leads her to Fletcher.

Selene quickly snatched the phone out of Caleb's hand "That would be unwise. Any risk of informing the target of our intention or identity, for example, us knowing about our friend over here, would prove disadvantageous"

"On the other paw, Selene," David said gently, taking the phone from her, "using the internet to look up information might assist?" He offered the phone back to Caleb. "Your word that you won't call the zoological gardens," he asked hopefully.

Caleb thinks for a few moments.
"All right. You have my word that I won't call them yet. At least, not until we know more." he says.
"So, what are you planning to do, then?"

~~~~~~~~
Sam decides to sit with Fletcher as the vet works on her.

"She's bitten her tongue when she fell but luckily it's not too bad so it won't need stitching or anything. No signs of head injury, and I can't see any obvious signs of spinal trauma but I'll know more once she wakes up. How many darts did you say she was hit with, again?" the vet asks, packing away her stethoscope and loading up a syringe.

"Tree." Sam answers when Kyndra hesitates.
"And I don't tink dere'll be any spinal issues. It was a pretty gracefull fall, all tings considered. She sort o' slid off de table."

"That's good. That makes spinal issues less likely than if she'd fallen on it outright. Three darts, okay. That's a fair whack. It's lucky she's a big doe or it might have been too much for her. One is normally enough. I might have to have a word with Animal Control." the vet says, shaving and swabbing a small patch of skin in the crook of Fletcher's arm, and delivering the antidote into her vein.
"This usually takes about two minutes to take effect, and then I'll hang around for about half an hour to make sure she's okay and just to make sure she doesn't need another dose because sometimes the antidote can wear off before the tranquilisers."
"Huh. Why's dat?" Sam asks with interest.
"It's because of two things - how it works and how it's metabolised. Basically, it works by binding to the same proteins in the brain that the tranquiliser acts on, thereby stopping the tranquiliser working. It can't actually remove the tranquiliser though, it just buys time for the body to naturally metabolise the tranquiliser. The problem is it's metabolised, that is to say, broken down by the body, faster than the tranquiliser, so there can still be tranquiliser left in the body that can bind to the protein once the body removes the antidote. And if there's still tranquiliser but no antidote in the brain then the tranquiliser kicks back in. Hence the need for the second dose."
"Huh. I tink I get it. So what happens when she wakes? Will she be all dopey or...?"
"Not normally with the antidote. If we let her wake up on her own, most likely, yes. With the antidote she should be pretty alert pretty quickly though, although she'll probably be a bit confused and scared, not sure where she is or what happened, that sort of thing. We may have to calm her down." the vet explains as Fletcher starts to stir.
"Here we go..."

The big doe rubs her muzzle with the back of her paw and a moment later her eye flickers open. She locks onto the vet, pupil wide, and tries to shuffle backwards in a panic. With a shocked yelp, she falls off the pew, but fortunately Sam is there to catch her.

"Easy, Fletcher, a chara.* It's me, Sam. You're okay, you're safe. We're all safe at you're Da's church."

Fletcher struggles for a few moments more but is soon soothed by the sound and scent of the smaller doe.
"Who's that? We're... At the church? How did we get here? Is Jay all right? Did they get her?"
"Dat's de vet. She just woke you up. She seems nice. We walked to de church. Jay's here wit' us. We're all safe for now. Don't try to stand up. Just stay where you are for now until you feel better, okay?"

Lucky wonders up to the vet, looking over her shoulder..
Can you take that antidote ahead of time??
It would be a great advantage when next we play last predator standing with the animal control team.
