This is the story of a red panda with pink fur. Her name is Alice. She was not supposed to live past the age of 2. Her parents are both also red pandas but with normal fur. Her mom’s name is Jane and she is 5 foot 6. Her dad’s name is Cree. He is about 5 foot 9. They were both normal in height and both lived normal lives. They quickly fall in love after meeting at an archery contest. Jane and Cree made it to the semi-finals. Both of them have hit all their shots right on the bullseye, all they had to do was not miss or get distracted.
Jane smirks at Cree giving him a cheeky wink. She yells over to him.
“Hey, tell you what you beat me and I might let you get to know me better. But if I win you are going to buy me lunch.”
Jane says and blows a kiss at him. His mind was racing. He was never much of a lady’s man. He just liked archery and kept to himself he never had a girl come on to him like this. He took a deep breath In and out. He shook his head and took aim. She might be hot and a girl but she wasn’t going to take it easy on her.
“Don’t miss cutie~”
Jane yells at him giggling. This makes the man panic and let go of his arrow pointing straight up. The arrow comes back down, landing right through his foot. Cree screams as Jane runs over to him.
“Oh no! I didn’t mean for that to happen! Just relax, this might hurt a bit sweetie.”
She says yanking the arrow right out. This causes Cree to scream trying not to cry in pain. He didn’t want to look weak in front of someone so cute. He watched as she took off her sleeved shirt leaving her only in an undershirt and rips it up and ties it tight around his foot.
“Let’s get you to the hospital, I think I owe you that at least. Then maybe you can buy me that lunch.”
She says smiling at him. His voice cracks as he goes to speak.
He says blushing but still in a lot of pain. She giggled but looked confused.
“M-my name that is…”
Cree says in a panic. Jane smiles and hugs him.
“My name’s Jane, nice to meet you cutie. Though I wish it was better circumstances.”
This was their first time meeting; they were both about 22 years old at this point. They grew closer and closer before eventually getting married a few years later. Though it had to be said Jane never let Cree play the dominant one. She loved him but also loved to be on top. This might have caused the problem where Jane got pregnant. It was another year later but after some casual sex and wearing out the red panda boy Jane found out she was pregnant.
She screamed from the bathroom. She had no intention of having kids. At least not yet. She couldn’t believe how badly she wanted him the other day and didn’t get off him letting him go full load in her. Cree runs into the bathroom.
He asks. She just sighs again.
“Looks like we are going to have a kid…”
Cree was overly excited but Jane not as much. Maybe secretly, over the next few months, she got more and more excited about the idea. Then after finding out it was a girl she was even more excited. She couldn’t wait. Her belly grew more and more. Before one night they laid down to go to sleep her water broke just before she was out.
They rushed her to the hospital where she screamed and cried as she gave birth to their new daughter. They named Alice this was Jane’s idea she was named after her grandma. But something was off her fur was not red like her mom and dad but pinker. She was taken away by the doctors to get the normal check-up and cleaned up.
Cree held Jane’s hand.
“Pink fur huh? What could cause that? My whole family was red I believe?”
Cree says. Jane looks down thinking then looks up nervously.
“I remember my grandma telling me of a story that she had a boy with pink fur but…”
She says then covers her mouth beginning to cry.
“B-but he didn’t make it…”
She continued. Cree tears up.
“Surely not! She will be fine… I-”
Just then the doctors walk into the room and hand Jane the baby. Alice just cries till she sees her mom before she just smiles reaching up at her. Jane smiles letting the newborn play with her fingers. The doctor then sighs.
“I have something important to say. I’m sorry but she… will be lucky to make it past the age of 2. She has a very rare sickness, it has to do with a rare mutation that causes her fur to turn pink. I have never seen a child live past the ages of two but I hope I’m wrong, I’m sorry.”
They both broke into tears hugging her tight. They wanted to give her the best life they could before she could leave them. They took her on trip after trip, almost never spending time at home. They took her to theme parks and just all over the world, they spent all the money they had on her. But one day on Alice’s first birthday all this stress and going out every day for so long put Jane into a heart attack. Cree rushes her to a hospital straight to the emergency room.
She was lucky she made it through but she will have to stay at home and try not to push herself. Anything crazy, exciting or stressing on her heart again might kill her. Alice was about a year old now and the family was celebrating her first birthday. Alice was sitting In her high chair looking up at her mom and dad.
“Happy birthday princess!”
Cree and Jane yell. As they cheer and laugh. This makes Alice laugh and hits her tray with her hands excitedly. Jane and Cree both give her a big cake saying we love you on it. Suddenly Jane begins crying.
“Eat all you want baby girl… w-we might not get to do this next year.”
Cree Hugs her and she begins to bawl. Alice looks excited by the cake and begins to make a mess while eating some of the cake. After a while of playing she looks up at her mom and dad crying then also begins to bawl not knowing what’s wrong but knowing something is wrong. The rest of the year was spent as peacefully as possible to make sure Jane didn’t go through another heart attack. This was rough on the family after the last year but they made it through.
It’s been a decent year but no changes are seen by Alice, no worse condition or anything. They ended up taking her to the hospital to be re-tested after hours and hours of waiting as the doctor walked in. Alice was playing with some toys in a small playpen while Cree and Jane watched.
“We got good news! We don’t understand how but she doesn’t appear to have any of the symptoms anymore but there’s still some strange things going on. She might be ok if only a few defects later on in life, But keep a very close eye on her.”
They both looked excited and hugged laughing and crying. But suddenly the strain of this excitement hit Jane as she screamed and held her chest. She was quickly rushed to the hospital. Cree grabbed Alice. He was crying and hugging her so worried about his wife as she was rushed to a different room. Alice was worried about her dad just playing with his shirt and chewing on it looking up at him. They sat out in the waiting room for nearly 8 hours then the doctors walked in looking down.
“Cree… we are so sorry but Jane has passed from a heart attack. We did everything we could, we are deeply sorry.”
Cree hugs Alice tight and cries like crazy. Alice also begins to cry because her dad was crying. Cree knew he was losing someone this year but his wife was not what he expected.
Many years pass after this. Alice is now about 10 years old and 4 feet tall. She was oddly short for her age but it wasn’t crazy. Cree comes into her room while she sleeps and shakes her awake.
“Time to wake up princess and get ready for school. I got to work too. I probably won’t be home when you get home so I’ll have a babysitter for you when you get home.”
Cree says. Alice grones and sits up.
“But daddy I don’t want a babysitter. I’m 10 years old now and I’m not a little girl anymore…”
She says rubbing her eyes. Cree smiles and hugs her.
“I know sweetie. But I just don’t want anything bad to happen to you. I couldn’t stand losing you after losing your mom about 8 years ago today.”
Alice hugs her dad.
“I’m sorry dad… I wish I remembered mom. What was mom like daddy?”
He smiled and rubbed her head.
“Honestly she was a lot like you. Stubborn and going to have it her way. But she was loving and caring. She loved you so much. I miss her so much.”
Cree says. Alice frowns looking down.
“But I’m just happy to have my little girl!”
He said as he tickled her. Both him and Alice laughed and she smiled at him after he stopped.
“Now get in the shower. Make sure you get clean this time.”
Cree says as he walks out of her room. She giggled.
She jumped up and grabbed some clothes that were normal for her age. They looked about normal, maybe a little more childish than she wanted but it wasn’t crazy for a 10-year-old. She goes to the bathroom and takes a shower and puts on some blue shortalls on then puts on a cute blue hat heading down to the kitchen. Her dad was already gone but had a pb&J sandwich sitting out for her.
Alice smiles and takes walks outside and sits on the porch waiting for the school bus. She swings her legs happily and eats her pb&J. She had a pretty decent life. They might not have tons of money or a perfect house but it was a better life than living on the street or something. Suddenly the bus honks. Alice jumps down off the porch and runs off to the bus with her backpack on, She gets on the bus and looks around.
There were a few people that stuck out to her. One was a young boy in the front; he always sat up straight holding his books and smiled at Alice. She gives an awkward smile and waves back. He was a human that wore a shirt with Eevee on it. They were playing tug of War and wore some aqua shorts. He was always super nice to her and she pretended to be nice to him. She didn’t hate him, he was just a little weird and always talked about protecting her and stuff. It was kinda creepy to her.
The next was a little lion, his mane hasn’t grown in yet but he always teased Alice. He wore a camo shirt and jeans. He smirks as Alice passes.
“Hey Alice and here I thought you wore pants to school, not just underwear!”
She jumps and quickly looks down but she did put on clothing. Why was she tricked by that? She stomps her foot.
“Dang it, Ram! I hate you so much, you are such a jerk!”
She yells going to the back of the bus and sitting embarrassed. Suddenly the bus driver yells.
“Stop fighting back there!”
A few people around ram laugh just mocking Alice. Alice sits thinking to herself.
“I hate this stupid school… Why can’t daddy just get me out of it? They told me I technically don’t have to go. Something about… my symptoms might come back eventually, that when I’m grown up I’m going to be set for life apparently?”
She sighs and looks out the window watching as they drive away from her home and slowly to the school. Later she’s in class, and the bell was about to ring for the next class. The teacher is talking to the class. It’s a Female Cow in a long blue dress.
“Ok class, tomorrow is bring your mother to school day! So don’t forget to have her sign that paper so she can come in to talk about her work and other activities.”
The class cheered excitedly. Alice just frowns and lays her head on the table the teacher looks worried and as the class was leaving she stopped Alice.
“Hey, Alice? Can we talk?”
She gulps and panics.
“I didn’t shoot the spit wad at Ram! He started it!”
The teacher looked confused and sighs.
“That’s not what I was talking about, but good job incriminating yourself.”
She said giggling. Alice looked surprised then puffed out her cheeks and crossed her arms.
She smiles and rubs Alice’s head but she smacks it off.
“So what do you want?”
Alice asks, the teacher leans down, getting face to face.
“Is something wrong with your mom? You seem to get upset when I talk about it?”
The teacher asks. She looks down.
“My mom died when I was young… i-i wish I knew her…”
She tries to keep talking but she begins crying as the teacher hugs her, Feeling awful. They gave her off mom’s day to stay home with her dad. Unfortunately, her dad got called into work too so she had to be with a babysitter. She loved her dad but she wished he could stay home more and be with her.
Many more years later Alice is now 16 years old. She has not grown one-inch thanks to her strange illness. She’s still 4 feet tall. Just like a normal day her dad walks into her room.
“Alice, time to wake up. You’re going to miss the bus.”
She sits up quickly only wearing a bra and panties and jumps out of bed.
“Shit! Why did you let me sleep in so late?!”
Her dad sighs.
“Alice, please watch your mouth. You know I don’t like that language.”
She shakes her head and shrugs.
“Dad, I’m 16! I might be small and only 4 feet tall but I’m still 16! You got to let me grow up!”
He laughs looking down.
“Sorry, I know I know. You are just so cute. I’m happy to know you won’t die. Your mother’s probably so happy. But being so small forever is a shame. I know it’s been hard with school.”
Alice got dressed in a similar outfit when she was 10 years old.
“I wish normal clothing would fit me at least… I hate wearing such childish clothing. Can’t we order special order clothing?”
Her dad sighs.
“You know I don’t have that kinda money. As much as I would love to.”
Suddenly there’s a honk.
“Shit the bus! Got to go, dad, love you! We can talk later!”
She hugs him and runs out of the house just catching the bus. In the front there sat the same boy but definitely more Older. Everyone on the bus was 16 now. Even ram he had a bit of a mane now looked like a mean lion now. But oddly she sits right beside him. He throws his arms around her and she smiles.
“Wow, cut it close huh? You didn’t even comb your hair.”
She blushes and puts her hair down with her hands.
“Oh shut up ram. My dad woke me up late.”
She sighs and lays against him.
“You are nice and comfortable.”
Alice says, he smirks and leans down, and kisses her. She blushed and covered her face.
Ram said. Alice smiled back.
“Love you too.”
Turned out Ram used to tease her because he liked her. It took her a while to fall for him but he was the only boy that seemed to like her. He was still kinda a dick but she was loved, right? After the bus ride, they got off and waved as they went to their classes. She was suddenly stopped by her three girlfriends.
One was a squirrel she only wore skirts and dresses. Today it was a yellow summer dress. She was a foot and a half taller than Alice. Next was a mouse. She was white-furred and kinda a bitch but she was kinda nice to Alice. Then last was a cat she was striped with black and orange.
“Hey, Alice! Are you still coming over today after school?”
The mouse asks.
“Hey Brittany, uhh ya I think so? We are staying all night right? I might need to get some clothes to sleep in but definitely.”
The squirrel smirks.
“Oh ya, she needs clothing for a toddler because she is so small.”
Alice blushes and glares.
“I’m not that small Cali!”
The cat speaks up next.
“Oh, Cali don’t tease her. She can’t help it if she still needs to wear diapers.”
The group laughs and Alice blushes like Crazy.
“Sam! Ahhh! I’m going to class. I’ll see you all after school! Or maybe I won’t, it might be nice.”
She goes to her class and the group laughs more before smirking at each other. It seemed the group had a plan for her.
