A/N: Double drabble.
Nosy understood ownership, even if it didn’t understand why humans wanted to own so many things. Still, it knew enough not to take things belonging to its friends unless given permission.
The same held true for its own possessions. Fluffs weren’t as possessive as humans, but it did prefer people to ask before borrowing something. Ianto had taught it good manners and it felt the humans it lived with should be held to the same standards. Manners, as Ianto had pointed out, cost nothing.
So, it was unlikely anyone had taken Nosy’s sheep, and Shaun had never wandered off on its own, apparently most stuffed toys couldn’t do that, therefore Nosy decided it must have simply forgotten where it had put its toy. Unfortunately, that didn’t help with finding it again.
“Oh, hello, what’s this doing here?” Andy said.
Curious, Nosy looked across the Hub at Andy, who had his coat in one hand and Nosy’s sheep in the other. Nosy remembered seeing the coat on the sofa; Andy must have accidentally put it on top of Shaun! Quickly it slithered over to its friend and took its sheep, humming happily.
“Ah, so that’s why you were so huffy earlier.”
