One Half of a Once-Ler

"Ah, see, that wasn’t so bad. And my mask fooled O’Hare’s cameras, with any luck. Let’s get this little guy in some soil and cross another off the list. Only 462 trees to go, Half."

Grroww.

"…and you were worried I was gonna get caught.”

Halfler rolls his eyes and growls, clearly unamused.

"Always getting into trouble, kid. Tsk tsk."

"Jackpot!"

Muffled groaning noises

"….crap."

Any time someone asks Ted who ‘Half’ is and has never seen him, Ted says with a shit eating grin “He’s my wingman.”

I've been wondering how Halfler and Ted would deal with the Trufflu au?

((That’s a good question, and I gave it a lot of thought myself. I’m probably not gonna join or anything cause no one would care, nor do I wanna be pushy. But I can mention it here at least once, to answer your question. So here goes.Long story is long, so read more.))

-Ted blinks but grins at the eagerness, freeing his hand after a second.-

Ah, no. Least I don’t think so. I’m just weird. -He chuckles as Halfler swings around and nips Shirley’s shirt for attention, tail swaying.-

You don’t seem that weird to me..

…! -rolls onto his stomach, trying to hug as much of Half’s neck as he possibly can-

I haven’t forgotten about you, yeesh! I’m glad you’re feeling better. Sorry we don’t have enough food here you, though..

Uh.. I made a new friend while you were gone, though!!

S’not your fault kid. My appetite isn’t exactly tiny. -Leans back into the hug with a rumble.- I’m glad you made a new friend though, what’s his name?

Halfler and Ted share a look. Even as Halflers climbed on.

"Ah, slipped by accident. And to make matters more confusing I’d like to introduce my self as, uh, Teddy. Yeah. Hi. Teddy Wiggins, Halfler’s rider until he scares me to death from drops like you just saw. -sticks hand out to shake-

-stares at Teddy’s hand before grabbing it, shaking it a little too enthusiastically-

Well, it’s nice to meet you,Mister Wiggins! 8)

…….

..Are you a clone, too??

-Ted blinks but grins at the eagerness, freeing his hand after a second.-

Ah, no. Least I don’t think so. I’m just weird. -He chuckles as Halfler swings around and nips Shirley’s shirt for attention, tail swaying.-

-Halfler nudges Ted back playfully.-

I had to get my energy back up, so I went home to Mister Graceful over here for a little R and R. I’m not as young as I used to be, and only Ted knows how much food to stock for me. -Sniggers as Ted shakes himself and glares, smacking his neck.-

You over grown lizard! Warn a me next time! I….oh, hey Shirley. Erh, Ted. Or, Half told me about what happened….uh, what did you want to be called? -Gives the younger Ted a worried look from atop Half’s back.-

Oh. Well, next time, say something, okay!? Geez. I was worried.

-glances back at the other boy-

Um.. Well, Percy says my name’s Ted, so? I guess that’ll be okay.

-lifts himself up onto Half’s neck-

..Why’d you call me Shirley??

-gets up from his spot on the grass, and hugs Half’s muzzle-

Hey!! Geez, where’d you go?? I haven’t seen you since, uh.. Since I, uh.. —the blizzard!! Went away. Yeah.

…-suddenly notices the older boy on the saddle-

..!!

-whispers-

Who’s that???

That's a cool saddle Ted, where'd you get it?

"I made it actually, it’s an old modified seat to my scooter.The more Halfler grew in his dragon form the faster he got, and I…sort of fell off once because it was just a saddle and no straps…"

That was a scary day…

"That’s actually how Half got that huge scar on his head. He tried catching me as we fell. When I got better he wouldn’t let me on until I created something to hold me better. So, yeah. S’how I got the saddle."

With an elated shriek (and a cry of terror from his rider) Hafler dropped out of the sky.

"HHHAAAAAAAAFFLLLLEERRRRR!!"

-hears faint screaming, breaking him out of his hazy thoughts-

….Huh?

-cranes his neck upward, squinting-

…It is!!!

Hey!! Hey, Half!!
