A giant fox wearing a birthday suit stomped around Zootopia, yelling, "It's my birthday, now give me presents!"
Why? Last time something like this happened, Nick became a big-bellied fox who was green.
Gideon Grey had decided to test another piece of candy. After that he felt weird, and his clothing had been changed.
And he was thinking it was his birthday, which it's actually on July 10th, but it was May 7th.
But he wanted a bright, shiny car he'd been looking at, a 2012 Acura NSX Turbo. So, he went into the store and said, "I want that shiny car." The store clerk denied him. "Sorry, son. You'd have to have $10,009 just to own her." Gideon was not pleased. "That car will be mine!" He turned green and got bigger. "Mine, mine, mine, ya hear?! Mine!" Therefore, he was a 16-foot-high, bright green fox.
All of a sudden, a 1974 Chevrolet El Camino SS passed by, the engine rumbling. Gideon noticed this and said, "Nah. I want that one!" So he chased after it. And who do you think was driving this? Yeah. Me. I noticed Gideon and looked behind me. "Whoa! What in the name of God?!"
So, I sped up, and, of course, Gideon wanted the El Camino, so he chased after me. I didn't want any one getting hurt, so I led him outside of Zootopia, as to not let anyone get hurt. It worked. Everyone was safe, and I could safely debrief him without harming him.
Finally, I stopped. The only way to return him to normal was to confront him. So, I did.
"Gideon," I said, "You're not getting this car! No way, no how are you getting your grubby little paws on it!" Big mistake. That just upset him. "How dare you!" he yelled. And I knew that was the time to act quickly. So, I injected the needle full of the serum, and sedation formula.
That put him to sleep instantly, and he returned to normal, as well as his regular outfit.
(The next day, Zootopia Central Hospital)
Gideon woke up, feeling some pain and feeling a little groggy, but then he woke up entirely.
I was sleeping in another bed next to him. I had asked John to return the El Camino to the house.
I also woke up feeling groggy, but with no pain. I yawned and saw Gideon back to normal.
"Gideon!" I yelled. "Are you okay?!" I hugged him tightly, crying a little.
Gideon replied, "Don't worry, I'm fine."
Still crying, I asked, "You absolutely sure?"
He nodded, then hugged me as well. Tears welled up in his eyes. "What in all of Zootopia happened?" he asked, crying as well.
I explained, making sure to tell him everything, without describing him as a monster.
He then told me that he was right awful sorry and it would never happen again.
At least not to him.
(In the lab) A gray and white paw with a strange sleeve grabs the final piece of candy, and the wrapper falls to the floor.
What'll happen next? Tune in next time.
