A Hard Situation with Grizzwald, Part 4
"I'll never doubt you again, Sue." Samantha said with a satisfied smile on her face.
They were lounging in their recently-expanded tree-nest, enjoying a filling meal with fancy dinnerware that wasn't often used by the squirrel sisters.
Sue grinned, talking with a mouthful of corn, "I'm always right! Can you believe he brought that other guy too?"
Samantha rolled her eyes and shook her head. "Nope, but thanks for bailing me out there. He came out of nowhere!"
"Is that all you have to thank me for?" Sue giggled.
The older sister shook her head, realizing that she had a lot to be thankful for, "Thank you for finding that opossum, too. I'm sorry for not believing you then, too."
Sue leaned back and rested her head on the edge of the nest, enjoying the praise. "And?"
Samantha pursed her lips, "And... thank you for warning me about that job. I'll get a real one some day, I swear."
"Aaaaaaaand?" Sue asked, toeing the line, trying hard not to giggle.
Samantha dropped her plate and pounced at Sue, delivering a big hug to the fluffy, laughing girl. "And thank you for being the best sister I could ever have."

"What...? Where are the squirrels?" the gator asked with a growl.
Grizzwald shook his head, "Where are we?"

The gator stuffed his cock back into his pants and zipped up. Grizzwald did the same, suddenly feeling foolish about seeing the squirrel on her knees with her mouth open.
Grizzwald turned to his boss, "I remember you saying, 'There's two of them!' Then I turned around and saw someone drop in front of my face from above. Then the rest is a blur."

The gator reached into his pocket to find his phone. No reception. he looked forward, surveying the pathways of the hedgemaze. "Lunch break is over. Start walking," he grumbled.

Two days later, Grizzwald returned to the woods, apologizing for his behavior to the myriad of trees. He never knew exactly where the squirrels were at any given time.
"I was wrong," he spoke to the rustling leaves, "I was inconsiderate of your feelings and I acted inappropriately."
The leaves only rustled back.
"I understand you probably don't want me around, but I hope my apology reaches you," he repeated for the fifth time as he made his way through different sections of trees. "I've learned how easy it is step out-of-bounds in my position. I'll be re-evaluating my relationships in light of this realization."

Grizzwald took one last bewildered look into the woods, then left.
The squirrels never came out to play with him again.
