It was hailing when we got back to the Hopps farm; I stayed in my car after I shut it off, sighing as I fell back against the seat. Two days. We'd already wasted two of our three days, and all we'd gotten was a completely unrelated distillery. I growled, grinding the heels of my paws into my eyes. All that work, and we had almost nothing to show for it; it felt like I was letting everyone down all over again.

Quit thinking like that already, dumbass, I snapped at myself. You didn't get the right mark, but at least you got someone, the chief even gave you an extension because of it!

Yeah, but twelve hours wasn't gonna get us far, not when it had taken months to reach this point, and now our only lead was dried up.

What the hell are we supposed to do now? I laid my forehead on the steering wheel, my claws digging into the cover. We don't have enough time to start from scratch!

I didn't bother looking when the passenger door opened, the scent telling me exactly who it was.

"I don't exactly feel like talking right now, Carrots," I dragged my head off the wheel and sat back up, going stiff when I noticed her scent was spiked. I turned to her, my tail flicking against the seat when I saw how she was staring at me: her eyes were half-open, kinda glazed and even a bit crazy. She licked her lips, one paw messing with the buttons of her shirt as she crawled forward with the other.

"Good," she finally got her shirt open, my whole body heating up when I saw she wasn't wearing anything under it. "Because I don't really feel like talking, either."

The next thing I knew, she'd thrown herself at me, shoving up my shirt as she dragged herself up my chest, kissing me before I had a chance to say anything. She didn't hold back with anything, running her paws through my fur, her claws hitting my skin, her tongue almost attacking mine when it darted into my mouth. It didn't take long for me to give into it, one paw slipping under her shirt while the other clenched on her ass. She broke away to gasp, looking at me in a way that had any sane thought fleeing the scene. She grabbed my collar and tugged me toward the backseat, the awkward trip made even shorter when she kissed me like that again.

"Oh, God, Judy," I stared down at her, her shirt falling open as she panted. I buried my nose in the white fur on her stomach, even softer than the gray that covered the rest of her. Her scent was so thick it was almost choking me, and I was sure mine had the same effect on her. I bit down when I hit the white tuft on her chest, the heat of her skin lashing through me as her claws trailed down my back. "Y-You're so-"

I didn't get a chance to finish. She wrapped her arms around my neck and pulled me down, my face getting buried in hers. I licked the spot where I could feel her heart race, groaning when she started screwing with my belt. I could feel that start to come over me again, but right now, completely lost in the girl I loved, I just couldn't give a shit. I took her paw and kissed it before guiding it back to my chest, where my own heart was pounding like crazy.

"Are you sure you wanna do this?" I muttered, it was the most I could get. She took her paw from mine and grabbed my face.

"Of course I do, Nick," her eyes were glowing now, slightly clearer. "And it's not just because I'm in heat. I love you, more than I thought I ever could love someone!"

I smiled down at her.

"I love you, too," it faded a little. "I just wanna make sure, it's not really something we can go back on."

She narrowed her eyes, sat up and grabbed my belt again.

"I wouldn't have started this if I didn't want to finish it," she undid my pants and yanked them down. "Now stop stalling and just fuck me already!"

I couldn't hold back a laugh, reaching for the tight jeans that'd been in the back of my mind all day.

"You're the boss, sweetheart."

I let her peel off my shirt before I leaned over her, trapping her under me. I was kinda short for a red fox, but she was still only about two-thirds my size, and part of me suddenly worried this wouldn't be a good idea, that no matter how careful I was I'd end up hurting her. I started to pull back, saying something about how we should at least wait until we were back in our room, when the door flew open. We froze, looking up to see Jack and their uncle glaring at us.

"Both of you, get dressed, now," Wyatt growled. "Then get inside, we're going to have a little chat."


"-in the backseat of a car, with a fox?! You were raised better than this, Judy!"

I'd lost track of how long Wyatt had been going on like that, and it didn't seem like he was about to stop any time soon. As soon as we'd gotten inside, he'd dragged her into an empty room and slammed the door in my face, leaving me stuck in the hall with Savage, who looked like he was about to rip my tail off.

"I can't believe you would do this," he snarled. "My own sister!"

I shoved out a breath, running a paw over my head before rubbing the back of my neck.

"And what exactly, do you think I did?" I stared him down. "Do you really think I'd take advantage of her, of anyone like that?"

He glared back at me a second before looking away. He sighed.

"A few years ago, that wouldn't have even crossed my mind, but now? Now that I know what goes on in your head?" he shook his, slowly, his ears dropping behind his back. "I don't know what to believe about you anymore."

He might as well have just stabbed me in the gut. I stared at him, my jaw slack and my ears flat against my skull. My tail had gone completely limp. Then my eyes narrowed, and I fought the urge to snarl at him, knowing it would just make things worse.

"I'm not in the same place I was back then," I took a step toward him, just getting angrier when he backed away. "And I love Judy, I'd never do anything to hurt her!"

"You can't say that!" he screamed it, a pitch I didn't think his voice could reach. "Not with…that scraping around in your head! All it would take is one slip-up to kill her!"

I stopped, opening my mouth to say something, anything, but he wasn't done yet.

"And how much do you even know about her? You haven't even known her six months!"

I snapped my mouth shut, my paws frozen in mid-air. Was he really doing this? I shoved the anger aside, throwing my paws down as I stepped back.

"She is one of the kindest, most thoughtful mammals I've ever met," it didn't take as much as I'd thought to keep my voice even. "She's selfless, determined, always ready to help."

I smiled, starting to get kind of dazed.

"But she's also hard-headed, rash and not always one to listen, but then, so am I," I chuckled a bit. "And I adore that side just as much as everything else about her."

I looked back at Savage.

"I know you're worried about her, and you have every right to be, but she wants this just as much as I do, and I've never been happier," I swallowed. "And I'll do whatever I have to to keep her by my side until the day I die."

Someone gasped behind me.

"Oh, Nick!"

I turned just in time to get slammed to the floor by a gray and white cannonball. I laughed, hugging her just as tightly as she did me. I didn't even care when Wyatt stormed over to us, looking like he was about to bust an artery.

"We're not done with this conversation yet, Judy," he stabbed a claw toward me, his whole arm shaking. "And you, fox, I want you out of this house now, I'm not going to let you corrupt my niece anymore!"

I felt Carrots stiffen, winced as her claws dug into my shoulder.

"The only corrupted one here is you, Uncle Wyatt," she turned on him, his look quickly changing to a guy who'd just pissed himself. "Just because you had one bad encounter with a fox when you were young does not mean you get to dictate how the rest of our family feels about them!"

She pushed away from me and got up, her fists tight and trembling at her sides. She stalked toward him, forcing him back against the wall.

"If you so much as think of putting together some kind of plan to hurt Nick, I will have you hauled off to jail so fast the cuffs will melt," she shoved him so hard it left a dent in the packed dirt wall. "And you will be banned from ever contacting our family again, I will not have anyone else corrupted by your ignorance and hatred!"

Her voice had risen until she was shouting, and she shoved him again for emphasis. But when she turned back to me, the rage on her face faded completely, and the next thing I knew I was flat on my back with my arms full of bunny again. Only this time she was kissing me hot and crazy, and I did everything I could to return it.

"C'mon, Slick," she pulled away, panting a bit. "We still have a lot of work to do, and then we can finish what we started."

I groaned when she ground against me, not exactly being subtle about it.

"Aw, hell, yeah."
