Summary: Logan has a run in with a thief
Author's Note: If you have never seen a ferret or don't know much
about their playful ways, they are kleptomaniacs. Don't leave
anything around that they can take and hide.
Danielle had settled in to her new surroundings at the school and it
was time to ask the Professor if she could bring her little ferret
friend to come live with her. Her horse was away for training and
being boarded, so there was no need to make room for him just yet.
Of course, Charles saw no problem in allowing her to keep the little
critter in her room provided she kept him under control.
The resident kids took delight in the furry little animal.
The afternoon brought some excitement around the school. Felix was
running up and down the halls entertaining the kids with his crazy
ferret antics - bouncing around like a nut and making his little
ferret noises that had all the kids giggling. Danielle kept her door
open while the kids babysat and played with him. In the meantime,
she was setting up his cage. Afterwards, she called for his return.
What she failed to realize was that Felix had ventured into Logan's
room, sneaking in when Logan returned, and unknown to Logan, had
confiscated one of his cigars that he left on his coffee table. The
kids said nothing but giggled as the little animal carried his heist
back to Danielle's room and stashing it under her couch. When he
came out from under the couch, she put him into his cage and he ate
his dinner. In the meantime, Logan was angrily looking around his
room for that last cigar.
"I know I put the damned thing here," Logan pondered while scratching
Logan opened his door again and peered at the children. They all
softly giggled at him and Logan cast an evil glare that sent them
scattering back into their rooms.
The next day, Felix was allowed the run of the hallway again. And
again, he slipped into Logan's room when he opened the door. Logan
had gone in for a shower after working in the yard. This time, Felix
highjacked one of Logan's socks, and when Logan opened the door to
leave his room, the little bandit snuck out carrying the sock down
the hall and placing it under Danielle's couch with the stolen cigar.
When Logan returned to his room to collect his laundry, he realized
there was a missing article.
"Hum. What the hell is goin' on?" Logan wondered.
He glanced around puzzled as to where the missing sock might have
gone. Again, he looked outside and saw nothing. He sniffed the air
and could not pick up the scent of anyone he would recognize.
The evening was another venture and this time the furry masked bandit
stole several of Logan's things. Logan had left his door open. He
was in his room making a repair to his bathroom sink with Scott's
assistance, but Scott kept running out to grab stuff. To solve the
problem of constantly opening and closing his room door, he suggested
Scott just leave it ajar. This left Felix with easy access to his
The ferret dragged each confiscated item down the hall one at a time
and placing them under Danielle's couch. First, it was a small
screwdriver from the toolbox. Felix was able to snatch it while
Logan was busy under the sink. Next, he grabbed a bottle cap from a
beer. And his last trip resulted in the stealing of another cigar
in fact, Logan's last one and one he was seriously looking forward to
enjoying after the repair was completed.
Felix was tired of running around and brought something with him to
Logan's room, where he curled up under Logan's couch and fell to
Logan finished his repair and figured he would relax with his cigar
and get some fresh air outside before going to bed.
"Damn kids. Musta snuck in here and stole my cigar. Why do they
have to keep playin' tricks on me?" he cursed. Scott snickered at
the thought of how the kids loved to play with Logan.
Angry and not in the mood to go ask Charles for another lot of
cigars, Logan went to bed.
In the meantime, Danielle was franticly looking for her little furry
friend. She ventured up and down the hallway asking the kids if they
had him or had seen him recently.
A short time later, Logan woke up and turned on the light. In his
bed beside him was an article of clothing and certainly not his.
He lifted it up to realize it was a lacy black bra.
"What the hell! Christ! Where did this come from?" he pondered. He
took a sniff and it had Danielle's sweet vanilla perfume all over
"Hum. Maybe I'll bring this back later," he said slyly to himself.
He snuggled back into bed and within a short time began to dose off
again. He woke up again as something brushed against his nose making
him want to sneeze. Logan turned on the light and there was Felix
curled up in a tight ball on Logan's chest. Felix had shifted around
and his fuzzy tail tickled Logan's nose. He lifted the weasel from
his slumber and looked at the collar he wore Danielle's name was on
the tiny tag. With a huff, Logan snatched up the black bra and
walked down to Danielle's room. He knocked on the door and was
invited in. Logan opened her door and looked inside to see Danielle
down on her hands and knees with her couch pushed off to the side.
In front of her on the floor were all of Logan's stolen items.
"I think I have two things that belong to you," Logan stated.
"Felix!" she said with excitement as Logan held the ferret out to her.
She quickly took him and hugged the little critter.
"I think I need to return a few things to you," she said pointing out
the stash of items on the floor.
"Hum. I have something else of yours, too," Logan said. Hanging off
of his finger was her black bra. Danielle blushed and swiped the bra
away from him. A devilish smile crept across Logan's face.
"I would put a leash on that little beast if I were you," Logan said
before claiming his stolen goods and returning to his room.
