The boy huffs a bit as he walks through the deck, his exercice time had been reduced to 1 hour a day instead of 3 as long as he is doing some sort of cultural activity and intellectual activity for 1 hour each. He sits down and rubs his chest “Oh god, I am dying” Speaks as he feels rather tired.
They were getting near of the port and their second to last stop before getting to destiny and the ship’s gravity was activated to emulate the planet’s, the boy had been feeling horrible as he had been living in reduced gravity since his regression.
The young fox hufs as he sits at the library room before huffing a lot “No way I will go to training” Speaks as he drinks some water “I feel like if I was born in the void or something…. This damn planet makes me way heavier too” Speaks as he sits at the lounge room before rubbing his pad, he won’t be able to override the local gravity of his body since all the ship is in landing mode and it will be for a couple of days.
4 days have passed since the battle of wills at the engine room and the fox was doing his best to avoid everyone, he doesn’t want to speak with anyone at all, or at least with no one from the high command. Secretly he had been getting a refresh of all the subjects too as he only has a couple of weeks to send the placement test back to the education board so his lessons can be assigned trying to cover his strengths and weaknesses… He needs to double dip in chemistry too as he hates chemistry with all his might even if he is an engineer.
The boy freezes as he feels a familiar paw on his shoulder and hears a familiar voice “Hey you didn’t show to classes so I have been looking for you. Shorty we have 4 days before landing to Arusias so we need to get your body in line or you may end up limping and laying down on bed for a week”
The fox nods “And is that too bad? I was thinking about renting a nice wheelchair to be rolled around while I do my errands”
Jake nods “And isn’t that way more humiliating than walking around? I mean I don’t have anything about people with special needs but having a healthy body and being confined in one of those?”
Raphiel sets his book down “What part of this looks healthy to you?” Asks as he stands up and wheezes “I feel like jell-o” his body feels way to heavy “How in the hell are you able to stand this pressure?”
The wolf holds the boy’s hand “I am from Seterias” Speaks as he goes all the way to the lounge room at a slow walking speed with the boy and then turns back
The fox just follows the wolf “Oh really? I am sorry for you, Are the craters still as bad as they used to be?” Asks as he talks with the wold
“Oh they have turned into a tourist attraction” Speaks as they start a casual chat that is winding the boy up very badly, they get to the point where the wolf do most of the talking speaking about mines, minerals, precious gems and the changes on his horribly heavy planet with quite a strong gravitational pull.
The fox pays attention as he wheezes “Where the hell are we going? I can swear that we have passed by that damn potted plant at least 4 times”
The wolf continues “Oh then you are not paying attention as we have passed that damn potted plant at least 7. Now what about sitting down and doing some breathing exercises. Maybe a massage?”
The boy feels like a stupid and doesn’t answers as he is set down on the couch and he feels how his chest is pressed on and then released, then the wolf massages his body “I take that you are not used to heavy gravity, just to G-forces”
The kit nods “I am from the capital world, the gravity pull is not too bad, there are lighter places but well, we were made for our planet and not other ones.
The wolf flexes “Oh well that must mean that we are way stronger than you”
The fox hufs more because he is rather tired as he is plopped on the couch and whines at the heavy hands “You wish, you may be stronger but we are way more athletic” Shows his tongue before whining as he feels the knots being undone
Jake chuckles “oh this back feels more like the back of an old man not the back of a kid”
Raphiel clenches trying to stop a moan Well I AM an old man. probably I am twice or thrice you age”
He looks at the boy “Speaking about age, shouldn’t they mark you before landing into port? We don’t want you to be mixed with other kids”
The boy gulps not liking the idea of that “I think I may pass on that or wear the temporary collar with chip… It is not like I want to intermingle with other kids”
The muscled man rubs some more “Don’t tell me that the fearless pilot is afraid of a little pinch?”
The kit just groans and moans as he feels how the knots break “Quite much afraid of getting something stupid that shouldn’t be there” Speaks as he moans again.
Both furns turn their head when they hear the door opening and the wolf salutes as he sees the cat walking in the room.
Raphiel stands up “And I am going to my room now”
The cat breathes deeply “Hello Jake, I can handle things from here. I need to discuss some things with Raphiel, you can take the rest of the day”
The canine man nods and ruffles the boy’s hair “Good luck shorty”
“Someday I will end up ripping your hand with a bite” Goes back to his bratty and mean. He stands up “What?” Asks when the wolf had retired
After an irritated expression and pinching the boy’s ear “Follow me” Pulls him to the door before releasing him “Now don’t test my patience and get in my office”
The fox walks in and opens a drawer, then uses a code to open a box he pulls some expensive candy from there “So what do you want to talk about?”
Gabriel stares at the boy before sitting down “I know that… OK ok” He looks at the boy “So what else do you have hidden in here?”
“A bomb that I hope that malfunctions while you are here now speak. What do you want sir?”
“Wh!?..... I want to arrange our landing as there will be some media people waiting for us after the attack. Usually our landing would be silent and discrete and our stay short but it will have to be extended”
The fox starts to munch on his candy “I am not interested. I will get down with the crew or through a backdoor and I will go to buy clothes, tools and such. I am getting tired of this huge tablet, I may set it as a desk computer and I will have to get the money of my insurance before it gets on hold”
Gabriel leans on his chair “An unsupervised disembark? Th”
“I will go with Katty, I am composing a letter to have her as my temporary guardian while I am on land and still in contract”
The cat stares at the ceiling “I will be your tutor, end of the discussion”
“You are my boss, you have a lot of work to do and I need to check things around the city… besides I want some vacations OF you”
The feline nods “Agreed, whatever, we still need to discuss what is going to be released to the press”
The fox opens a door that contains a mini fridge then takes a drink “No comments. What about the pirates? No comments. Is it true that you saved the crew? No comments. Is your captain an tedious pain in the ass? No comments”
The cat stands up “Allright, that is everything then” He grabs the boy’s hand “I need something to cheer me up so lets take you to the medical ward to get the plates and your boosters. Oh nice face, feeling better already”
The boy’s ears drop as he freezes in place, he feels how his wrist is grabbed tightly and how he is being pulled, he tries to use his heels to anchor in place but is being pulled easily “No!. Stop I will do it later”
The cat hums “I don’t believe you so its now and its now. That is an order, not so brave now huh?”
The orange furred kit whines as he tries to drop his weight on the floor the adult part of him was leaving him as well as his braveness “Noooooh!”
There is a small devilish grin “Awws, the little boy is scared? Poor little kit. Mister captain will be sure to give you a lot of kissies to feel better?” Mocks the boy as it tries to apply dead weight. The cat only grabs the boy and tosses it on his shoulder before making an oof sound “God you are heavy!”
Gabriel feels some impacts on his back as the little fox hits him while he kicks “Its the gravity you uncultured feline!” Complains as he feels a rather hard spank on his bottom which makes him whine. All the people passing by them look away to not see the pathetic scene.
Once they get to the medical ward the boy crosses his legs and looks down as he sulks, he knows that he cannot outrun the cat and anyway it is a damn ship even if its the second heaviest weight class of ships sized like a small citadel it is not enough to run forever.
The doctor hums as he looks at the boy “Oh I have been waiting for you captain, been too busy?” Asks as he grabs the boy’s hand the boy nods a coupe of times “Just a little bit”
The white bunny sits the boy down on the examination table and takes his shirt off “Now captain I need you to breath deeply several times” He sets the stethoscope on the boy’s chest “Oh I notice some heavy breathing, are you feeling sick?”
The feline looks at the bunny “Oh besides the increased gravity lets say that he just did a lot of exercise trying to squirm out of a grecoroman lock
The bunny nods “Captain, you shouldn’t be doing that, I know that you want to recover your muscle memory but you shouldn’t be doing heavy exercise, even less if we are having augmented gravity”
The fox whines and nods before looking at the feline with a sulky stare “Yes, I am sorry” Speaks and meeps as he feels a patch on the back of his ear the doctor pulls out a pad to read his vitals and his chemistry.
The white furred red eyed lapine rubs the boy’s head “Now captain, we need to give you your booster again, 1 needle on the arm and then some spray, it may be itchy but its way better than another one on the rump” Teases the boy who flusters and blushes
Gabriel hums “I am not opposed to the idea after all that spray would be way better for a grateful kid at the colony”
The kit sighs and whines as he offers his arm before curling his toes the fox starts to hyperventilate out of anticipation. The feline raises his eyebrow as he notices the reaction and sees how the boy tenses getting as hard as a stone as the needle is being inserted in his arm.
The tears start to come out as the foxie sobs while grabbing his tail as hard as he can, then whines again as the spray is applied on his other arm giving him a slight burning sensation “AH!”
The doctor rubs the boy’s head “Such a brave little boy captain” Speaks as he hands a lollipop to the child before setting a bandaid with cute designs of a popular cartoon, quite entertaining for adults but mostly aimed to regresees “Soon enough you will be a superhero again” The boy nods again as his ears are dropping down.
The boy whines a bit as he is held by the feline as the plaque is getting ready witha buzzing noise “N-no”
The rabbit gets it ready to mark the boy’s left ear and the back of his right palm “It is good that regression returns missing limbs, it was going to be hard with your ear missing pieces”
The boy nods and whines as he feels the pressure on his fur and withdraws his hand as quickly as he can.
The doctor hands another sucker to the boy “Good boy, are there any aesthetic modifications that the profile is missing?” Asks as the genemods tend to be recorded only if they are important for the health to prevent an illness that will come with enough time. The little boy nods no as he is set on a chair and he is forced to endure some time with the eyes open as his retinas are scanned.
The boy blinks a lot of times as it finishes and his eyes start to tear even more.
The bunny sends a mail “I will send your recipe to the optometrist. Maybe soon enough you will be able to get a mod or a procedure to not need the glasses”
The kit rubs his eyes “No I won’t be able to, the mods get my eyes worse and there is no cure for my thing” Speaks as he is set down and eeps at a pat on his bottom.
“About that other thing its going to be a secret between you and me, your insurance will cover the glasses and the packages with the special supplements are going to be delivered to me directly”
The cat looks at the boy “supplements?”
The kit nods “I am not a space amoeba like you. My body is not resilient yet” Speaks as he starts to walk away while rubbing his bottom “Don’t follow me! I am going to my room thank you!” Yells still quite angry at the cat before leaving
He looks at the doctor “He is from the capital world?” Asks as most of the kids born in the colonies had been enhanced in some ways or modified so they could live at somewhere completely different from their birth world
The rabbit nods “Affirmative! At least that is what his profile says”
The feline nods “Its interesting, I heard that the people born there don’t like to leave the planet now that they have cleaned it properly and terraformed it back”
The doctor shrugs “People are people”
Landing on Toshak
“Everyone to your stations! Lock yourselves on the seatbelt we have 53 minutes before hitting the attomephere!” The cat commands as he starts to point at the screen “Calculate the angle and turn the screen” He yells as he walks around.
The kit was very insistent about being at the bridge “Idiot! Confirm the status of the forum! what percentage has ingressed and fastened already! Comm commander check the status of the forum, request an increment of pinging to the base planet, confirm the climate and the atmospheric pressure. Get confirmation of landing on the airstrip or water landing”
He turns to the cat “Stupid stupid stupid! don’t give single orders. Give the orders in bulk and to your commanders!” He growls angrily as he falls to the floor due the lack of balance and strength “Check if the propulsors are complete deactivate, If they are still on Kill the engine. Tell to engineering crew to lock themselves in security cavin. Check status of the explosive storage room! Dumb cat double, triple, quadruple check everything before preparing to land! Most of the trips that go incomplete and in disaster happen when the ship is taking off or landing!”
They hear a beep and the fox presses his ear, most of them are hearing the same incoming transmissions even if only a couple of them have the ability to speak back.
“Rodger! calculate the! What! HEY! PULL ME DOOOOOOOOOOOOOWN!” The boy starts to kick as one of the commanders is picked by him and pulled out of the bridge “WHAT ARE YOU DOING!” KIcks and screams as the man sits down and sets the boy on top of him on the humiliating child fasteners that toddlers tend to use “Get me down!”
The rather large lion stays silent “Following orders sir” Answers only once as he stares at the screens. The boy can see the hundreds maybe thousands of souls sitting in the forum before staring at the screen then feels a quite violent shake as the ship turn on its own axis.
The ship turns a couple of times even if there is no change of direction but they can feel violent changes on the speed, everything is trembling even with the gravity diffusers activate.
The fox meeps as something foamy is shoved in his mouth and a helmet is placed on his head, then they set a neck inmovilizador on him, he hated this as it reduced his motor skills “FKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK” tries to yell but the thing in his mouth is covering it, oddly enough he can breath quite well.
The landing is a rather rough success but a success in the end, the gravity of the planet made things quite different from the simulations where they had been practicing for a couple of months, they had the landing back on the new colony and back to the federation port quite practiced as well.
Everyone was quite shaken, some of the crewmen were recovering, some were laying on the floor or still sitting and some puking. The little boy was the worst of them all as he was in somewhat of a shock, one of the paramedics went to tend the little boy but soon enough he was recovered.
Everyone gets ready most of them will leave their personal belonging in the ship but some of them will take them out, the Zoarehn branch of the federation (Basically the branch of their world) had arranged the stay at different hotels some of them will stay at the ship of course if they desired it but no one would like that with the cleaning chemicals and the pest killers.
At some point they start to hear clamoring outside as they board the transport capsules to leave the ship the cat looks at the boy with a quite cocky expression “Don’t think too high of yourself cocky boy! I give you an 85, too shaky of a landing to be proud of it”
The cat frowns he had decided to forget the boy’s attitude in the command bridge “Hey little brat! Hear me well”
The fox growls “Unhand me! Well at least we made it in one piece, that makes it a barely passing grade”
The cat opens his eyes “Barely passing! since when 85 is barely passing!”
Raphiel grins “That is rather mediocre, you would get in big trouble for an 85 at my school” Speaks teasing as they arrive knowing that once there the boy cannot be punished by the cat, not in public at least “Nuh uh, calm down” Speaks as the doors start to open.
The town’s major gives a major speech about expanding the frontiers and exploring the uncharted areas of the cosmos taking way more than what the major crew had wished seeing how the other crew members are already disembarking.
“...And to conclude we want to hear some words from our dashing adventures, give an applause to the brave crew of the Hopeful and the valiant captain Raphiel Fernandez of the chosen thousand” That being the list of captains being contemplated for the Admiral rank
There is a silence in the ship as no one comes out, they look at each other, they have been sending the reports of the accident a couple of times to different branches making this situation a bit awkward “Fernois… Did you sent the report to the” The rat holds his head “Yes I did! Seth?” The Communications chief closes his eyes “I did… what in the world”
The fox looks at them “I shouldn’t have been mentioned at all, that shouldn’t have mentioned at all…. God forbids that I even have to control a whole fleet or an armada”
They hear the murmur “Well there is only one way to fix this and is going out and explaining everything” Commands the cat trying to keep the situation in his hands
The cat stands up and comes out to be received in an ovation, then the raccoon follows him, after him the chief of engineers then everyone comes out slowly getting in formation for the pictures.
The badger starts to speak once more as he starts with his speech once again, everyone just looking at each other, he goes to the feline “Raphiel, sir tell us. We heard that your valiant efforts saved the ship from a fearsome attack, tell us the inspiring tale of how you fooled imminent death and danger!”
The fox leans on the raccoon “Are they in electoral campaign or something this is taking a milenia?” the raccoon just laughs softly “Probably” Replies
The cat leans on the mic “It was a complete odyssey, I am glad I was able to take part on them” He retells the story as he remembers it without getting too deeply in the details “Yet I cannot take the credit, all the credit goes to the Recruit Raphiel Fernandez”
The reporters start to film the cat who starts to get nervous as they start to ask questions in a loud voice, some of them were addressing to the fox as they had made their actual research confirming their hunch when the cat addressed him as a recruit”
The fox walks towards the cat and picks the mic “I hate speaking in public” Complains to himself as he opens his pad and starts to read answering some questions as calmly as he can,
The cat notices that the boy is shaking in his place, his eyes were getting wet but he keeps answering on an on, speaking way too truthfully and innocently for his own good, the boy as an adult was good at lying and faking but his panic starts to overtake him.
It was a quite eventful afternoon as they continue some more localized interviews as they leave the podium the kit walking quickly to the car with the local governor and the sector’s president once he has the chance the feline interrupting all to follow the boy who seem to be at breaking point.
The boy behaves quite well at the car, the governor a dog lady with nice golden fur holds the boy’s hand as the badger president keeps talking and boasting
“Can we go to the hotel? Fel… Gabriel… Can you please make sure than Jake or Katthy can come to my room?” Asks as he swings his legs back and fro
The dog lady looks at the boy “Is something wrong sweety?” Asks concerned as she has been a mother before and a regresee too
The boy nods as he swings his legs back and fro “I just want someone to help me at my room” The voice sounds pitiful almost like if it was begging
The badger laughs “Of course captian, those short arms are giving you troubles?” Teases the boy in a jokingly way “I understand the need of help in these situations” Speaks as he pats the boy’s back with a heavy thud producing a loud sound “I have an eye for talent! I may have committed a mistake but this is the one Right Captain? Or should I say future admiral of the Starfleet forces? I have good eye for talent! Only a couple of years waiting and then bam Admiral” Asks as he motions his hands as if making a movie title.
The boy just nods a little bit as he crosses his legs “Yes”
The well dressed man laughs again “Please save me a seat for your condecoration! I want to be on a spot all the way in front for predicting what was obvious” Laughs some more as the boy nods shily.
The president makes the trip quite an uncomfortable one and personally invites both furs to a party the next day even if they had an invitation in their rooms, the feline accept for both as the badger jokes about bringing the best grape juice in the whole planet and maybe they can finish with some plumplum cake, a childish alternative of a cake with mild intoxicating properties.
The cat nods again as they get their wares and get down of the transport, the boy gingerly walks following a bellboy as he takes both furs to their rooms.
Gabriel kneels in front of the boy “Are you going to be ok alone?” Speaks as the bell boy had left the room, he had shown the cat his room beforehand
The little fox starts to sob “What do you care!” Screams as he tries to slam the door and the feline blocks the door with his foot “Leave me alone!” The boy clenches his fists before being pushed back by the door.
The feline locks the door behind himself “That was not very nice Cadet, tell me what happens?” Asks as he tries to walk in
The fox whines as he is about to try to push the feline out.
“Raphiel! I was going to forget your behavior at the ship but you are making me reconsider that. Tell me what bit you to get like this?”
The kit keeps trying to push the larger cat out before being grabbed by the ear and pulled to the bathroom “I think you need a bath first to cool down that temper, then we will have a rather long conversation”
The kid keeps squirming trying to get away but he is tugged and manipulated easily by the feline pulling and steering him “If you don’t want to listen then fine by me, if my mouth and your ear cannot have a conversation my hand and your rear will!”
The kid squirms and fusses once again as he is undressed shivering ocne the cold water hits his body as the tub fills “I knew that you hated me but this is ridiculous!” Speaks as he starts to scrub and wash the kid “Stay still!” Scolds him before hitting the boy’s wet bottom white hard making him howl.
The boy just keeps responding in the same almost feral way as he sobs, a couple of hard swats made him struggle even harder as the feline hits harder before sitting the boy “Calm down! You know what is a good thing about being a prideful dumb feline?! That most of us tend to travel with brush and mine is made out of wood, good for missbehaving kids!”
Raphiel sobs as he cries out of frustration “I will use it on you! Don’t you understand!? Why are you still behaving like this?!” He struggles with the boy until the kit gets tired and only sits down to sulk and sob as he is being washed
Gabriel was really frustrated at this point “Why?”
The boy clenches his fists and tightens his jaw “I don’t know!” Speaks as he stomps the floor “I don’t know! I don’t know! I don’t know!” Yells as the naked boy clings to the cat’s body to hit him over and over again “Its just! I should have this nailed down but I don’t know”
The punches increase in strength hurting the feline quite more but soon that became a rather tight hug as the boy cries for a long time as he just grips the cat’s leg.
The feline looks at the boy and somehow still has pity for him, he takes the naked kit to the bed and sits down sitting him on his lap, he slowly rubs the boy’s while cradling him, letting him vent everything out.
The young fox still hates the feline for the time being but he is rather tired now of all this hell and of his own attitude. The cat looks down “I see, I am sorry myself” Speaks as he rubs his head “I don’t understand it neither and I don’t know if I will ever understand until I go through it myself”
The boy just hits the cat on the sides before sobbing once more nodding
Gabriel pinches the boy’s ear, he pinches them quite hard but he is gentle enough at least “I have no children and I have never gone through it. I am going to need you to understand me too”
The boy nods as he is set on the floor and looks down, he looked quite tired of everything “I hate all of this”
The yellow eyed black cat pats his lap “Well that I do know, just try to deal with it for the time being, soon enough you will be going home”
The fox sniffles as he lays on the cat’s lap “I don’t have a home” Curls his toes and winces as he feels a heavy blow on his buttocks
Gabriel tilts his head as he looks at the boy “You don’t?” Asks as he rubs the boy’s bottom before hitting him again, he feels how the boy tenses on his lap
Raphiel had no more energy to keep fighting, he whines again and feels how his abdomen and buttogs get hard before feeling the impact “AH! ow ow ow do you expect a conveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee OW stop hitting me if you wanna talk!”
The cat smirks before hitting hard again “Then we will talk when you are getting your bath” Hits the boy again, he can feel how the boy’s breathing starts to change getting faster “I don’t want to hurt you but I don’t want you to turn into a bad apple”
The fox squirms a little but his kicking is rather soft compared to other times “OWWWWWWIE You are the bad apple” Squirms more as he feels 3 more swats these quite harder, he doesn’t have energies to cry more “OW OW OWWWW NO” He feels another set of rather hard spank, he sees how the cat rubs his own hand as its stinging “SORRYYYYYYYY SORRRYYY SORRRYYYY”
The cat slowly rubs the boy’s bottom as he hears him begging before hitting once again this time going back to his original striking force and speed “Good”
The spanking is long drown but is not as terrible as other spankings that he have had at the ship. The sobbing mess is taken to the bathtub after it is filled with warm water.
The silence is quite long and the boy starts to rub his bottom. The cat holds the boy’s hands and sets them on his lap “No rubbing Raphiel”
The boy sulks and pouts as he is being washed and looks away
There is a feline murring while he rubs the boy’s shoulders “You know that it tends to be a general rule for kids who had been spanked. Now tell me why you don’t have a house”
The fox whines and stares his reflection on the water “I just don’t no one is going to be able to adopt me”
Gabriel nods As he starts to shampoo the boy “Well you have quite good references and credentials, you will have a great future in the academy, you will be able to take special courses…. I could say that but someone HASN’T finished his placement tests”
The boy closes his eyes and his ears drop as he hears the feline scolding him “I don’t feel like doing it… I want easy courses, last time I go assigned to really exhaustive classes”
The older fur nods again before rubbing the boy’s shoulders soaping him “That is the only way to improve Raphiel, more in the area that you decided to master”
Raphiel puckers his lips “Besides I hate the academy… I don’t want to run laps, I don’t want to wake up at 5am, to eat bland sh….. food, to be yelled at everyday”
The cat looks at him “Then why did you decided to join it?”
The blue eyed fox sighs “Because I always wanted to fly spaceships… I never was one for the military stuff but its a price to pay to fulfill my dreams”
Gabriel looks at the boy rubbing his cheek as it continues “Can you just finish doing this, I don’t feel like talking and I want to sleep”
The black furred feline nods before continuing without asking anything else, he helps the boy in his sleepwear “Sweet dreams, someone will be arriving soon. I know that things are not ok between us but I want to tell you, I won’t let my hero break his pedestal by himself” Speaks as he turns off the light “And you still owe me a sounding spanking but you do need sleep, sweet dreams”
The fox curls under the bed, closing his eyes having a lot of things in his head for first time in a while, trying to relax as his toasty butt reminds him how bad had he been, how much he hates the cat and the situation but mostly, how much he hates his own attitude of the late.
