Another long day of work was done, and the weekends we’re finally here! “Ah! The weekend.” Grant sighed, stretching. He looked at Edgar who was at the door waiting to go. “You ready to go?” Edgar squeaked and jumped in Grant’s arms. Grant chuckled and walked home with Edgar in his arms. Once they got back to the apartment Grant opened the door, and to his surprise his roommates, Charlene and William were home.
“Oh no.” Grant whimpered. Edgar saw worry in Grant’s eyes and patted his back. The accountant looked at the spider, and gave him a small smile. “Edgar, it’s going to be fine. Just stay still for a while, okay?”
Edgar nodded, and stayed as a little plushy. Grant opened the door to be greeted by his roommates. “Hey Grant!” William said hugging Grant tight. Grant chuckled and hugged William back giving him a kiss on the cheek. Grant blushed and kissed his boyfriend back.
Charlene chuckled. “So how was work?” She asked.
“It was good, just a normal work day today, and this week.” Grant explained. Charlene then looked at Edgar in his arms.
“And who is that?” She asked.
Grant looked under his arms, “Oh this is Edgar, a plushy I got at the studio from Joey.” He lied.
“Its adorable, so life like.” Charlene mentioned looking at the plushy.
“What’s the occasion where you got a plushy of a cartoon character?” William asked.
Grant’s eyes widen. He didn’t think of anything on how he got Edgar. “Um well. Shawn, the toy maker at the studio made plushies of the Butcher Gang, and I got one thanks to him.” He lied.
William and Charlene looked at each other and back at Grant, who was now smiling hoping his friends would believe him. “Well congratulations!” William cheered. Grant sighed in relief seeing they took it.
“Thanks guys.” Grant replied. “Well I’m going to be in my room, call me when dinner is ready.”
“We will!” Charlene yelled as she and William walked back to the kitchen.
Grant went to his room and shut the door putting Edgar down on his bed. Edgar whimpered looking at Grant. “What’s wrong?” Grant asked. Edgar squeaked, and turned away. Grant sighed and pet the toon. “I’m sorry, I need to keep you a secret. If I don’t, Joey would be mad at me, William and Charlene, mostly William will be shocked, and bad stuff will happen to me and the studio!”
Edgar blinked at the accountant. Grant looked at Edgar, and remembered he was a newborn. “Oh yeah, you weren’t created when Joey told us.” Grant sighed, and explained to Edgar. “You see, Joey has kept you, Bendy and the other a secret for some time now. He doesn’t want anyone outside the studio, except for Henry’s wife to be talking about live toons.”
Edgar squeaked nodding in approval. “So now you understand?” Edgar nodded and squeaked hugging Grant tight. Grant chuckled and hugged the toon back.
After having dinner, Edgar went back to his room and saw Edgar was asleep after having his dinner. Grant smiled, tucked the little toon in his bed, and gave him a kiss. “Night Edgar.” He whispered. Grant then got ready for bed too. As he brushed his teeth, Charlene came in.
Grant turned and saw Charlene. “I’m finishing up don’t worry.” He muffled since toothpaste was still in his mouth. Charlene chuckled in reply. Once Grant spit the toothpaste from the sink and gargled with some water, he was able to talk with Charlene. “So what’s up.”
“I know.” Charlene whispered to Grant.
Grant’s eyes snapped open and looked at his roommate. He knew what she meant by the term “I know.” “How did?”
Charlene giggled. “You know when you lie, you blink twice.” She mentioned.
Grant sighed. “Please, don’t tell anyone!” He begged.
Charlene zipped her lips. “Don’t worry. Your secret is safe with me.” Grant sighed in relief. “Besides, you two are so cute together.” She then walked to the bathroom giggling.
Grant sighed and smiled. “Yeah we are.” He whispered with a smile. He then walked to his room and went to bed with Edgar.
The next morning Grant did his morning routines and took Edgar with him to work. Once they got to the studio Grant went to his office and got to work the moment he sat down. Edgar squeaked and jumped on Grant’s lap. The accountant chuckled, “Okay. You can sit on my lap.”
Edgar squeaked and nuzzled on Grant. Grant chuckled and pet the toon as he worked. During the lunch break, Grant split a ham and cheese sandwich with Edgar and had a cup of hot tea that Susie made. After lunch, Grant did some work until he checked up on the clock.
“Oh I forgot my meeting with Joey!” He yelled. He removed Edgar from his lap and set him down as he grabbed a few pieces of paper. “Okay Edgar. I’ll be right back.” Grant pets the spider in the head and walked with Joey so they can have their meeting.
The spider toon started to get bored squeaking and sighing since his dad was busy. Edgar then heard footsteps. The spider squeaked and opened the door only to be greeted by the little devil darling himself, Bendy!
“Hey Edgar.” Bendy replied coming into Grant’s office. Edgar squeaked and went over to the demon. “You want to play?” Edgar nodded squeaking in response. “Good! Come on buddy!” Edgar squeaked and followed Bendy to Alice and Boris where they had balloons filled with ink on them. “Alright, we’re ready for ink war.”
“Do we have to do this?” Alice asked.
Bendy nodded. “Yes. We do.” The demon grabbed the balloon and threw it at Alice. The balloon broke splattering ink on her.
“Oh it is so on.” Alice growled glaring at the demon. She grabbed two balloons and threw them at Bendy and Edgar, but they missed it and hit the wall.
Edgar then grabbed an ink balloon too and threw it at Alice who missed. The toons laughed and started throwing balloons at run another running around the studio to the downstairs.
Meanwhile, Wally was walking by whistling a tune. He stopped whistling when he saw all the ink from the ink fight. “GODDAMN IT!” Wally yelled slamming his mop on the ground breaking it.
The toons continued throwing ink balloons at each other going around the hallway. They went to the music room, where the band was performing. Sammy Lawrence, groaned hearing the toons coming his way. When he saw them throwing ink balloons at each other he was tapping his foot upset at them.
“Who would four stop throwing ink balloons!” Sammy yelled. Edgar responded by throwing a balloon down Sammy’s crotch. The band members laughed, as Sammy went down holding his crotch. Bendy and Edgar laughed as well.
“You okay?” Boris asked.
“No!” Sammy squeaked.
“Where did you get hit, want me to heal it?” Alice asked.
“NO!” Sammy squeaked again. The band roared in laughter.
Bendy and Edgar ran off so they can hide and attack Boris and Alice together. “Ready?” Bendy asked. Edgar squeaked nodding in approval.
“Where’s Bendy?!” Alice yelled.
“Attack!” Bendy yelled as he and Edgar pelted Boris and Alice with ink balloons. Alice and Boris did the same and it became an all at war. However, it was interrupted.
“Bendy! Boris Alice!” Joey yelled. The yell was surprising, that Bendy lost his grip and an ink balloon hit Joey. “Bendy!” Joey growled.
“You better run.” Bendy whispered to Edgar. The spider nodded and went back to Grant’s office, but stood in shock seeing ink splattered the place. Wonder what to do, Edgar grabbed paper to wipe the ink off. Grant was walking back to his office and gasped at the mess, and Edgar cleaning up.
“Edgar?! What did you do!?” Grant yelled. Edgar looked at the mess he made, and sheepishly smiled. “Look at this mess!” Grant kneeled down on the floor and went to pick up the papers. Edgar walked over to Grant giving a small whimper. Edgar went over to pat Grant on the back and apologize, but Grant glared at him. “Look! Leave me alone, Edgar!”
Edgar squeaked stepping back from Grant. Edgar squeaked saying he was sorry, but Edgar pushed it away. “Edgar, leave!” The spider toon felt tears in his eyes. He slowly walked away turning at Grant one last time before leaving his sight.
