Nightmares

It was Monday morning. Judy Hopps opened her eyes as sunlight flooded through her window. She smiled and moaned, her eyes just opening up. What a bright, beautiful morning, she thought. She sat up in her bed, stretching her arms out wide and letting out a loud yawn. While in the middle of her morning yawn, she used a free paw and brushed back her ears. They popped back up immediately, but it was just a morning habit of hers. She couldn't help it.

Wait, was it a bright morning? Oh-no, Judy thought in horror. She moaned out loud and shot a glance at her clock.9:45 am! She was sooooo late for work! Judy hopped out of bed (literally) and zoomed through her tiny room, grabbing her freshly ironed police uniform off of the table in her room. She slipped her shirt over her head and slid her pants on over her legs. She grabbed her hat and darted out of her apartment.

Judy raced down the streets of Zootopia, avoiding cars and buses. She was quick on her feet, partly just because she was a bunny, but also because she was so late for work. She sure hoped that Chief Bogo wouldn't fire her. Well, of course he wouldn't, but thoughts like that made Judy panic and run faster.

Once Judy ran into the ZPD police building, she ran up to Clawhauser's counter and panted.

"Judy!" the cheetah exclaimed. "You're…"

"Late! I know," Judy panted, resting one of her paws on Clawhauser's desk counter. "Phew! I'm so wiped out."

"You better get to work," Clawhauser said. "Chief Bogo will…"

"I know, I know," Judy sighed. "He's probably going to kill me. I don't know what got into me today. I've never woken up late before."

"I understand," Clawhauser responded. "You better go."

"Yeah, thanks," Judy smiled. She jogged off down the hallways and opened up a door. She quietly shut the door behind her and pulled herself up on her chair. She sighed and moaned, angry with herself for waking up so late.

Oh well, Judy thought to herself. I better start organizing those papers double time.

"Carrots?"

Nick Wilde, Judy's partner, walked into the room, holding a stack of papers.

"Carrots, are you okay? You're-"

"Don't. Say. It," Judy growled, avoiding eye contact with him.

"Whoa, somebody has caught the grumpy wumpies," Nick chuckled to himself. Judy moaned, obviously annoyed with her partner. "Carrots, you know that I'm just kidding, right?"

"Just shut your muzzle," Judy hissed.

"Whoa!" Nick barked, throwing his hands up defensively. "I'm sorry. I must be a huge burden, huh?"

Judy rolled her eyes, but she couldn't help but smile. "Okay, you sly fox," Judy chuckled. "Let's get to work."

Judy and Nick began to sort out files and papers and put certain papers in folders. This was their job when they weren't searching out criminals. Those days were their glory days. They had most of their fun on their criminal chases.

"Seriously, Judy," Nick said (and you could tell that he was serious if he used her real name.) "What's in you today? Why did you wake up late?"

"I don't know," Judy said. "I really don't. I was just up a little later last night, looking at some criminal records—for fun, you know. But I've stayed up way later than that before on work nights. I don't know why I woke up so late this morning. It's not like me to wake up so late."

"Maybe you accidently turned off your alarm clock," Nick shrugged. Judy stopped to think about that for a second.

"Yeah, but that's happened to me plenty of times before and I just always wake up at the normal time even without my alarm," Judy replied. She shrugged. "I really don't know. It must have been nothing."

"Okay, Carrots."

Judy smirked and rolled her eyes. She continued her work with Nick. An idea popped into her head and she grabbed her iPod out of her pocket and placed the earbuds in her ears.

"Carrots?" Nick said. "Carrots? CARROTS!"

Judy quickly pulled out her earbuds and shot her head around to look at Nick.

"What? What is it? Are we called to go on another mission? Are we-"

Nick shook his head, raising his paw to cut Judy off. "It's nothing, Carrots. I was just trying to catch your attention, that's all. You little bunnies really drift off into your own worlds, don't you?"

A smirk spread across the fox's face. Judy looked at him, offensively. "No we don't!" she snorted. "I was just listening to my music."

"Sure, Carrots."

"You don't believe me? Well, look! Here's my iPod…"

"I never doubted you," Nick said. "I just said sure."

"Sarcastically," Judy muttered. Something is up with this bunny's attitude today, Nick thought.

"Hey, do you want to go to lunch with me during our lunch break?" Nick asked. Judy looked up at him.

"You won't bother me anymore, will you?" she asked, wiggling her nose. Is she on the bridge of tears? Nick cocked his head. Wow, this is not like Judy.

"Of course not," Nick gave her a smile. First she wakes up late, next she's moody, and now she's sensitive? What's next?

"Where to?" Judy asked.

"Maybe just to the pizza parlor," Nick said. Judy gave a disgusted face.

"No thank you," she snorted. "You can go there alone. I'm not going."

"Hey, we can go somewhere else if that's what you want," Nick replied. "Tell me where you want to go."

"I want to get hamburgers," Judy replied.

"You? Hamburgers?" Nick asked, showing a little too much shock in his voice.

"Yes, I can have hamburgers if I want!" Judy snapped. Nick's eyes widened. Did Judy really just snap at him over her wanting hamburgers?

"Okay, hamburgers it is," Nick announced. "Now we really should be getting back to work."

"Or at least you should," Judy muttered. "I've been doing my work. You? You've been talking about food."

Nick sighed, bothered by the mystery of the bunny's attitude. He grabbed another stack of papers and began to sort them out into different folders.

Why am I being such a jerk? Judy asked herself, realizing how snappy she was towards her partner. Suddenly, she remembered something. This something could be the reason why she slept in late. It was her nightmare. Her nightmare about Nick. She and Nick were back in the pit in the old museum and Nick seemed to go savage, but only it wasn't the Night Howl kind of savage. He went savage like he couldn't control himself at all. It seemed as if there was no way of fighting it and as if he lost his entire memory. He looked sickly in her nightmare. His eyes were red and his mouth was foaming. He ran to attack Judy, chasing her around in the pit. Judy was stuck, tripping over fake logs. Just like in their act, Nick dived to grab Judy's throat, but only this time, it wasn't an act. Right as Nick struck, Judy had woken up.

Remembering this nightmare, Judy shivered. Nick noticed her sitting still. He looked at her, waiting to see if she'd move.

"Hey, Carrots? Are you alright?" he wondered. Awaking from her daze, Judy smiled.

"Uh, um…Yeah. I'm fine. I just dazed out for a moment there," Judy stuttered.

"And you're the one telling me to work," Nick mumbled.

Judy laughed nervously. "Hahaha, yeah…"

Nick looked at her, suspiciously. Usually she would roll her eyes or just set a small, annoyed smile on her face if he said something like that.

"Are you sure that you're alright? You don't really seem yourself today, Judy," Nick said. "Do you need anything?"

"I'm fine, really," Judy squeaked. "I'm just probably a little off because I woke up late. I'll be back to my old self before you know it."

"Okay…" Nick said, sounding a bit unsure. But Judy was probably right. She would be back to her old self in not time.

#####################################################

"…and then Jack fell on his snout, daring not to cry in front of us. He ran off and we never heard from him again," Nick said. "Well, that is, for a week. Jack could never be alone."

They were at lunch eating hamburgers and fries. Judy giggled. "Funny story, Nick," she said. "Poor little Jack."

"Oh, he's not little anymore," Nick replied. "He's probably bigger than me."

"Oh, I see," Judy smirked. "Maybe he can replace you. I need a big, ripped guy."

"Oh, am I not big enough?" Nick raised his eyebrows.

"Well…You could work out some more," Judy joked. Nick chuckled.

"Well then, I'll start tonight," Nick said. Judy looked at Nick and suddenly drifted back into her nightmare memories. She remembered when Nick's eyes turned so cold and different; the foamy saliva sliding out onto his lips.

"You'll do what tonight?" Judy asked, returning back to the present.

Nick looked at her, unsure. "I said that I would start working out tonight. You know, to continue the joke?"

"Oh, yeah," Judy smiled. "But I still don't think you'll get as muscular as your cousin Jack."

Nick smirked. "Oh, is that so? Now I will legit start to work out at gyms every free chance I get," he said.

"Hmm…" Judy grunted, putting on her thinking face. "If you really will do that, I guess that I'll have to help you. I'll make you some nice dinner after you work out."

"As long as blueberries will be a side dish."

"Deal."

Judy finished up her hamburger and fries. Nick waited patiently for her to eat her lunch. He finished his minutes ago.

"You bunnies are slow eaters," Nick chuckled. Judy got moody again and shot a look at her partner.

"No we're not," she sniffed. "Just because we aren't like you sly, quick foxes doesn't mean-"

Nick cut her off. "Hey, Moody Judy. I was just kidding. Chill."

Judy's nose began to twitch. She was not in the mood for anything, especially teasing. She did NOT want to be called Moody Judy by Nick. Her sensitive side took over her as she tried to fight back unnecessary tears that were trying to slide out of her eyes. Her nose twitched wildly; she couldn't control it.

"Judy, are you okay?" Nick asked, his voice soft and concerned. She definitely was about to cry. Nick hadn't ever seen her cry much. Probably about 2 times before, but he could tell that she definitely was about to break down.

"I-I…I'm oooookay," Judy gasped, gulping down her tears. Why am I so sensitive? Judy asked herself. This is Nick who I'm with. It's normal for him to act like this and tease me. This is how we act together.

Nick saw how hard Judy was trying to hold back her tears.

"Is it something that I said?" Nick whispered in her ear. Judy's ears began to droop down and flattened against the back of her head.

"N-noooooo," Judy whimpered, her voice shaky. She finally couldn't hold it in any longer. Her tears slowly dripped out of her eyes. She didn't want to cry in front of Nick. She wiped her tears with the back of her paw, but the tears kept spilling out.

"It's okay, it's okay," Nick said. He pulled Judy into him as she cried into his chest. "You bunnies. So emotional."

That was the last thing Judy wanted to hear her partner say. She pulled away and turned her back to Nick. What did I do this time? Nick asked himself, irritated. He put his paw on Judy's shoulder, but she hit it off. Her sniffling grew louder. She felt embarrassed crying in public, but there was nothing that she could do to stop that.

"Judy?" Nick asked. "Judy, are you really okay?"

"No," Judy sobbed. Nick put his paw on her shoulder again. This time she didn't bother to brush it off. It was comforting knowing that he was there and that he cared.

"I don't feel very well," Judy sighed, turning around to face Nick. Her eyes were big and watery. Nick thought that it was kind of cute. Her thought that she looked super cute when she cried.

Judy wiped her tears again. "Can you maybe walk me home?" her nose began to twitch more.

"Sure I can," Nick said, softly. He held out his paw for Judy to take. When she took it, he helped her out of her booth and walked her to the front of the restaurant. He paid their bill up at front and walked out of the hamburger place. Once they were on the streets, Judy pulled her hand away from Nick's. She looked up at him and smiled. Nick smiled down back at her. Judy thought that she saw some kind of sparkle in that smile. She turned her head away and blushed.

Nick walked her all of the way up to her room. He looked down at her as she stood in her doorway.

"Thank you, Nick," she said. "I just don't know how Bogo will react when he knows that I'm home so early. Maybe I should call him."

"Don't worry about it," Nick replied. "I'll take care of it. Just don't wake up late tomorrow."

Judy smirked. "I think that you'll be the one to wake up late tomorrow."

"We'll see about that," Nick chuckled. He sighed and looked at Judy. "Judy, I want you to know that if anything is bothering you, then you can tell me. I'm all open."

"Thanks, Nick," Judy said. "You mean so much to me."

"I know I do," he winked. "Well, see you, Carrots."

"See you, Nicky."

Nick turned around.

"What did you just call me?" he asked.

"Nothing," Judy mumbled. As Nick walked away, she thought that she saw some kind of coldness in his eyes, but it must have been her imagination.
