"Hi! I'm nurse Jane, now what seems to be the trouble?"
Hunter explained to the nurse how much Pawla had been coughing the night before, and that he was worried. She gave him a reassuring smile and checked over Pawla before looking back at him. "She's okay, just has some allergies. I'll write you a prescription to handle it."
"Thanks," he gave her a grin and watched her blush. "Are you her dad? I just ask because I noticed she calls you Hunter."
"I'm watching her for two weeks, she's uh... in the system you know?" Jane nodded and took a half step closer to him. "Well it's really sweet how concerned you are for her." Hunter smiled and felt Pawla grip the leg of his pants. "Hunter I wanna go. Now." He apologized and they left the room. While waiting to check out at the reception desk he stopped them and knelt before Pawla. "What was that? You were kinda rude to Jane back there."
"I don't want you to go out with her." Hunter raised an eyebrow. "What? Pawla I have a girlfriend and she's upset with me right now but I'm not exactly looking around for a new one."
"But if you like her you won't want me around anymore," the little one mumbled the words but Hunter heard them and held her close. "I could never feel that way about you Pawla, I mean it."
Hunter brought Pawla back to his apartment and made a quick dinner. Then he helped her get started on a bath, followed by some cartoons, and then he was tucking her into bed. She was shy around him, barely said a word, but Hunter felt his heart already growing to accommodate the young werewolf. He got up to leave and found himself back in there not ten minutes later when she started coughing. Worried, Hunter stayed beside her all night, texting Clawdia to ask what he should do. She recommended a clinic and he made an appointment the second they opened. #hunterhuntsman#pawlawolf#everafterhighdoll#monsterhighdolls#monsterhigh#everafterhigh
Hunter couldn't help but say he'd take in the little werewolf for the two weeks. Something about her sweet little face melted his heart and made him want to protect her. As Clawdia went over the basic rules, Clawdeen stepped over to the table.
Hunter could tell immediately that she didn't like what he had chosen to do, so he excused himself and led his girlfriend from the area. "How could you agree to this?" She asked him the question with a hint of something he couldn't understand in her tone. "I wanted to help, and Pawla is super cute I-"
"You didn't even think this through! Werewolves aren't exactly easy to raise and now you're signing up to be a father of one?"
"I'm just watching her for a couple weeks Clawdeen," he explained carefully. "Why are you so freaked out about this? Isn't this usually a good sign? When a guy can take care of kids?"
"I... I gotta go I can't deal with this right now." With that she left, leaving a confused Hunter with no idea what he had done wrong.
Pawla knew what fighting meant from her parents, so she left the table. Clutching her only toy to her chest she wandered around the cafe, only to bump into a human male. He gave her a kind smile as she looked up at him, something she hadn't had in forever that wasn't because of pity. "Who are you here with?" The concern in his voice made her smile and she took his hand before leading him back to the arguing werewolves. Clawdia had just noticed that Pawla had wandered off, but her panic dissipated when she saw the young girl hand in hand with Hunter.
The human took the free seat as Clawdia explained the problem and, to everyone's surprise, Pawla hopped up on his lap. #hunterhuntsman#clawdiawolf#clawdwolf#pawlawolf#monsterhighdolls#everafterhighdoll
