Dear lord. Don't flame me! I like these pairings, so what? If you don't like them, then just ignore this! And why are you here if you don't like it, anyway?
I don't own TUFF Puppy.
Dudley and Kitty were sitting in the break room, just chatting. Somehow, the conversation got turned to past crushes.
"Remember when I liked that poodle, Fifi? God, I wanted to die of embarrasment when I found out she was the Chameleon!" Dudley exclaimed. He and Kitty shared a laugh.
"At least you know that Eric isn't the Chameleon" Dudley joked, nudging her in the ribs. This time, he was the only one laughing, as Kitty just looked confused.
"What? Who said I like Eric?" she asked, her tone matched her face. Now Dudley also looked confused.
"But... Don't you like him? It's kinda obvious" he stated.
Suddenly, Kitty realized what he as talking about. Her cover-up crush. And now she had blown it. Well, even if Keswick or the Chief wasn't around, it was still bad.
"No. I don't. He's a cover-up crush. The one I really like would never, ever like me" Kitty said sadly. She looked down at her claws.
"What? Come on, Kitty. You can't be so negative. I'm sure that whoever it is, he likes you right back" Dudley said, patting her on the back.
Kitty looked up, tears flowing freely down her face.
"It's... The Chameleon. I'm in love with the Chameleon" she informed, before breaking into sobs.
Dudley continued patting her on the back, though his mind was elsewhere.
'She just told me who she's in love with. Is it only fair that I tell her who I love? I mean, what if Keswick walks in? I'd die of embarrasment... But I guess it would be for the best' he thought. After moments of weighing the pros and cons, he decided to tell Kitty.
"Hey, Kitty?" he said, lifting her tear-stained face to look at him.
"Do you think it would make things better if I told you who I love?" he asked gently, though he planned to tell her no matter what she replied.
Kitty studied his face. It looked like he had something to get off his chest. So she nodded.
"I'm... I'm in love with Keswick" he stated. Kitty's eyes widened, but then she slowly turned into a scowl.
"At least your crush is on someone who's on our side. The Chameleon is a criminal!" she wailed. Dudley gave her a reassuring hug.
"Yeah, but after I destroyed his invention yesterday, I don't think Keswick likes me very much" he joked, earning a small giggle from Kitty.
Little did they know, that the Chief was watching.
'If they feel that way... Then I'm gonna help. Even if I don't like gays, or if the Chameleon is evil. I must put their happiness first' he decided. He slipped out quietly, already making a plan.
