Henry opened the front door and went to look outside. He smiled seeing the kids play outside. The toons looked behind Henry and they too saw the kids. “You guys want to play with them?” Henry asked.
“Do we have to?” Bendy asked.
“Well you don’t have too, but it would be great for you guys to open to others.” Henry explained. The toons looked at each other and back at the kids playing games. “Look. You guys suffered a lot, and I want to help you guys, by meeting new people.”
Bendy and Alice looked at each other for a second, but Boris smiled and moved over to Henry. “I’m ready to play!” Boris cheered. The former animator chuckled and pats Boris on the head. “Bendy, Alice you two want to go out and play?” He asked. Bendy and Alice turned away from Henry. The later sighed and put his hands on the toons shoulders. “Everything will be fine. I’ll be there with you three.”
“Come on! I’m excited to play!” Boris cheered.
Alice gathered her courage and smiled. “I guess I’ll give it a shot.” Boris and Henry smiled at the angel, and now turned to face the demon.
Bendy looked up at the three, “I-I don’t know. Maybe.” Bendy mumbled. Henry gave a warm smile and held his hand out for Bendy. The demon smiled and held Henry’s hand. The later took the toons outside and walked over to the kids playing soccer.
“Mr. Henry!” A little girl called out. The kids stopped playing and ran up to Henry giving him a hug. The former animator smiled and laughed at kids coming to him.
“Hi kids! How are you?” He asked.
“Good!” They all replied. “We missed you.” A little girl replied.
Henry chuckled. “I missed you kids too. Guess what? I got a surprise for you.” The kids squealed.
“What’s the surprise?” A young boy asked.
Henry chuckled a motioned for the toons to come over. The kids “oohed” and “ahhed” seeing Bendy and the others for the first time, “Kids. This is Bendy, Boris, and Alice. Their my kids.” Henry explained introducing the toons.
Bendy chuckled. “H-Hi kids.” He gave a small wave. The kids stared at the toons confused. However, one little girl went over and hugged Bendy. The little demon froze feeling the hug. He looked at the little girl and smiled hugging her back.
“Bendy meet Marie, she’s a hugger.” Henry explained. “And this is Lindsey, Tommy, Cody and his twin Connie, and Michael.” The kids smiled as their name was called.
Alice smiled seeing the adorable little kids. “How do you know so many kids, Henry?” Alice asked.
“Well, Linda and I babysit them.” Henry replied.
“Mister Henry, are they going to play with us?” Connie asked.
Henry nodded. “Of course, you three play nicely,” He said facing the toons. The toons nodded in agreement, he then turned to the kids, “this is their first time playing with you guys, so be safe, and have fun! I’ll be watching you guys.”
“Okay!” The kids and toons replied. The toons stood around looking at what the kids were playing before they were introduced. “So. What are we playing?” Bendy asked.
“Soccer!” Cody replied.
The toons looked at each other. “What’s soccer?” Boris asked.
The kids gasped. “You never played soccer!?” Lindsey asked. The toons shook their heads. “It’s the most, fun, amazing, super game. EVER!” Cody yelled.
“How fun is it? I’m all about fun!” Bendy cheered.
“Very fun!” Connie added. “So, were put into teams and we try to kick one ball to the goal, which is the Fitzgerald Family and the Vine Family mailbox.
“So we kick it to the mailbox?” Bendy asked. The kids laughed at his response.
“No silly!” Tommy replied. “If the ball rolls past the mailbox, the team wins a point!” He explained.
“Okay, gotcha!” Bendy gave the thumbs up.
Lindsey and Marie grabbed Alice’s hand. “Alice could you be on our team?” Marie asked. Alice nodded in reply. “Sure.” The girls squealed in happiness as they took Alice to their side of the team.
“So that means I’m in your team?” Bendy asked looking at Michael and Cody. The two boys nodded, making Bendy’s toon eyes sparkle. “Alright! Let’s start!”
“Wait!” Connie yelled. The kids looked at her, “what about Boris?” She asked.
Tommy knew Connie was right. The teams would be uneven if Boris joined the team. Then the little boy thought of an idea, “Boris, want to be the score keeper?” Tommy asked.
“Sure! But what’s a score keeper?” The wolf asked.
“Score keeper is where you keep track of the score, so if Bendy and I won a point you count it, or if Alice and Lindsey won a point,” Tommy explained.
“Gotcha!” The wolf replied giving thumbs up.
“Cool! We got a team then.” The teams faced each other as Tommy set the ball down. “Ready,” the teams eyed each other. “Go!”
Tommy kicked the soccer ball first to Cody. Cody then ran towards the goal only to be stopped by Alice who got the ball. “Nice! Now kick it to Tommy’s goal!” Marie yelled. Alice nodded and went over to the guy’s goal to kick the ball scoring a point for the girls.
The girls cheered wining the first point. “Great job Alice!” Marie cheered. The angel blushed seeing the support she was getting.
Round two came along, and as the girls were going to win another point, Cody came around and scored a point for the boys. “Alright! Cody!” Bendy cheered jumping up and down. This made the score 1-1 for both teams.
After a few rounds it was round 5 and so far the girls were in the lead, and the boys were a point behind. Tommy went to kick the ball away from Connie, but she was able to miss, and kick the ball to the boy’s goal.
The ball then rolled away from the goal bouncing to an unknown house. “I’ll get it!” Bendy yelled running to the house to get the soccer ball. The kids got worried for Bendy hoping he would make it alive.
Bendy then went to the yard and smiled seeing the soccer ball. Quickly he grabbed it and ran back to his friends. “I got the ball! I got it!” Bendy then got cut off when a boy’s hand, lifted Bendy off the ground. Alice and Boris gasped.
“Oh no, not them.” Lindsey replied.
“Who?” Alice asked.
“The Street Boys. A group of boys who pick on us and ruin are fun.” Tommy explained.
The boys walked to the crew as the little demon tried to escape from their grasp. “Look it’s the shrimps and two weirdoes.” One of the boys mocked. Boris and Alice glared and the boys.
“Hey let me go!” Bendy struggled. The taller boy shrugged and dropped Bendy, forcibly. Bendy held his arm from the hit. Marie and Boris went over to the ink demon hoping he was okay.
“What do you want bro!” Tommy yelled.
Tommy’s brother chuckled. “You know what happens if your toys walk in our turf.” He mentioned. “Its ours.”
Bendy glared. “No it’s Tommy’s and the kids!” Bendy spat back. The kids gasped and hid behind Boris and Alice.
Tommy’s brother grabbed Bendy by his bowtie and pulled him close to his face. “What did you say to me, demon!” He spat. Bendy glared, however on the inside he was in fear. He hoped Henry could get him now before anything goes wrong. “I said what did you say to me!” Tommy’s brother yelled punching Bendy in the face.
Alice and Boris gasped holding on to one another. If they thought the kids were scared seeing Bendy getting pushed around by Tommy’s brothers friends, then they should be more scared of what could come next.
Bendy, now having a bruise on his cheek looked up at the older boys. “I said, that ball belongs to Tommy!” Tommy’s brother chuckled and threw the ball at Bendy.
“Bendy!” The kids yelled.
Bendy was now heavily breathing his toon eyes become circular with swirls in it, his smile started to get wider. Before Bendy could show his new look to the older boys, Henry came in time.
“Woah! Woah! What’s going on?” Henry yelled.
Bendy blinked and his eyes went back to normal. Tommy’s brother and his friends looked at the older man. “Its nothing, come on guys lets go.” The boys then walked away from the older man, who just glared at them.
“Bendy!” Marie yelled. Henry turned around and saw Bendy along with his injury. “Are you okay?”
“Yeah.” He replied. Bendy touched his cheek flinching at the touch. Henry walked over to the toon and lifted him up.
“You okay, right?” Henry asked. Bendy nodded. Henry sighed and smiled softly at the toon. “Kids, I’m going to get Bendy cleaned up. Just head home and be careful okay?” The kids nodded. “Boris. Alice. Let’s get inside.”
The wolf and angel nodded and followed Henry inside. The two keeping an eye on Bendy.
