Hey everybody. This is my first attempt at a Barnyard fic. Hopefully you the reader will enjoy. This is dedicated to my good friend AngelOli16 for helping inspire me through my writers block on this the first chapter. Disclaimer: Back at the Barnyard belongs to Nickelodeon. I own nothing. Now without further ado I present the first chapter.

It was a couple of days before Valentine's day at the barnyard and Abby was sitting in her stall thinking about a certain cow and how she was going to ask him to be her Valentine.

"I hope he'll like this valentine I made him. I worked awfully hard on it" About that time the cow she was thinking about happened into the barn.

"Worked awfully hard on what?" Otis asked scaring the hell out of her.

"Uh…a new human costume?" she said uncertainly causing Otis look at her funny for a few moments.

"Ok, well I'll see you around"

"Ok, see you" After Otis walked out of earshot she sighed dreamily. "Now there goes one major hunk of beefcake"

Meanwhile a shadowed figure was walking towards the barnyard with box in its hands.

"I will make you mine Otis. I swear by Valentines Day I will make you mine forever"

A little later Otis, Pip, Pig, Duke, Freddie, and Peck were meeting in Otis' stall to plan the annual V-day barnyard bash.

"Hey, O, how come the girls aren't here?" Pip asked.

"Because it would spoil the surprise"

"What surprise?" Pig asked.

"You know the surprise I have planned for Abby, I mean Bessie! I mean the girls! Yes, that's it, the girls; I'm planning a surprise for the girls. Heh, heh"

"Oh, I get it. You're going to surprise Abby on Valentine's Day. Maybe even admit that you like her" Pip clarified.

"I do not like Abby!"

"Admit it Otis you like Abby. Don't deny it" Freddie said getting in on the action.

"Abby and Otis sitting in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G" everyone chanted.

"Ok that's it! If you're not going to focus on the party plans then I am out of here!" Otis yelled storming off.

"I'll go talk to him" Pip said following after Otis. Otis had stormed out of the barn and was just walking quietly enjoying the cool night air.

"I probably shouldn't have snapped like that, but I'm so sick of them teasing me about liking Abby…" Otis continued to talk to himself completely unaware that someone was watching his every move and didn't here the growl that came from the mystery person at the word 'Abby'. A moment later the figure made its move and snuck up on Otis and hit him in the head with a big branch knocking him out.

"…and so what if I think Abby is the most beautiful woman on the planet. That's my opinion and I'm (gets hit on head) unconscious" the figure then dragged Otis away. Fortunately Pip saw the whole thing and ran back to the barn to tell the other's what happened. A little later Otis regained consciousness and realized he was tied to a chair.

"What am I doing here? Who tied me up?"

"I did" said a familiar voice.

"I know that voice. I can't believe your back"

"Why did you miss me?" said the figure walking out of the shadows to reveal her face and confirming Otis' thoughts and causing him to scream.

So what did you think? Did you like it? Hate it? Any ideas on who the kidnapper is? I left a few clues throughout the chapter, see if you can find them and piece them together. I know the chapter was short, but I promise the rest of the chapters will be much longer. R and R please.
