Pet Name: Staevo
It was a beautiful Friday morning. The sun was grinning and the clouds danced like giddy school children. Pteris sang pretty tunes as buzzers waved through the flowers with big smiles on their faces. At this time of day, Nef had just finished combing out the knots in Staevo's hair.
"I hate getting my hair combed," grumbled Staevo. The young Lupe lay on the vanity with a big frown on his face. His paws were above his head and his tail was tucked between his legs. He really did NOT like the morning brush routine.
"Then stop rolling around in your sleep," teased Nef, his guardian. She opened a drawer and put the comb away. "Done. Now you're all pretty!" Relieved, Staevo jumped off the vanity and ran outside to play.
"Ahh, I hate mornings!" complained Staevo to his gallion, Love. "I always get combed and that evil brush always tickles and scratches my back!" Through all his frustration, Staevo threw the wingoball over the gnomes and into the faerie bean plants.
"Try hiding tomorrow morning," said Love. "That way, Nef can't try to comb you."
"That's a great idea." Staevo smiled. "Then I can show Nef that I don't need to be combed."
When the next morning came, Staevo hid inside the dirty clothes basket tucked in his closet. Though it smelled like sweat and stinky Krawk feet, Staevo was determined to not get combed. He covered his nose and watched for Nef's entrance.
"Staevo," Nef called. "It's time for your combing." As Nef walked towards his bed, she gently nudged his blankets. Confused from the silence, she lifted the sheets and saw a pile of tennis balls. "Oh, that little rascal," she said. "When I find you, you'll get a combing and a nail trimming!" Quickly, she shuffled out of the room to look for him.
"Ack, a nail trimming?!" thought Staevo. "That's the worst!"
As time passed, Nef had not found him. Staevo was beginning to get tired of hiding and had fallen asleep in the laundry basket.
In his dreams, Staevo saw the most outrageous things: He saw long haired warfs and babaas. A blue babaa leaped in front of Staevo's face with a big frown. "Comb meeeee," it bleeped. "Comb meeee." Scared, Staevo ran passed the petpets and through a door. When the door opened, he saw a giant golden comb.
"Be combed!" it rumbled. "For I am the COMB KING!" As Staevo was about to run, the warfs and babaas blocked his escape and carried him towards the Comb King. "AHH!" screamed Staevo. And with that, he awakened.
Hearing the spine tingling scream, Nef sprinted into Staevo room and pulled him out from the closet. "Oh my goodness, what's wrong?!" huffed Nef.
"I don't want to be combed anymore," whined Staevo. "The brush scratches and tickles my back!"
"Well, you don't need to worry about that anymore," Nef said with a disgusted face. "Because I think you need a bath instead." As Staevo groaned and grumbled, Nef carried him to the bath tub.
