Disclaimer: I do not and have never owned Over the Hedge or any characters that you
recognize. I do, however, own the plot, Jasmine, Lily, Fern. and Amber. Steal any of them
and I will hunt you down.
Jasmine watched the humans as they walked around the animal's home, their machines by the
hedge. She heard Amber hiss,
"Get ready to go...now!" Stella, Tiger, and RJ ran towards the humans, who, predictably, ran after them, attempting to catch them. Not that they could. If they got too close, Stella would turn them into stinkbombs. The three drew the humans away, while the others ran over to the machine, and, one by one, dragged the hood of the machines open.
They used the nuts Hammy, Fern, and Amber had found to jam the engines. When they finished,
they fled. Soon, RJ, Tiger, and Stella joined them.
"Success!"Jasmine said proudly, giving them a thumbs-up, or as close a one a skunk can give.
"You did it? All of them?"asked Stella.
"As best we could,"answered Amber.
"That's great!" said Stella. Now they could hear angy human voices, and Amber and Jasmine traded satisfied nods.
"What if they realize we did it?"said Verne, worried. As usual.
"Relax, Verne, humans aren't that smart."said RJ. He wasn't worried at all. Again, as usual.
"Humans most certainly are not smart enough to know we did it."agreed Tiger.
"A job well done, overall."Amber said calmly.
"Amber? Fern? Can you help me find more nuts?"Hammy asked hopefully. Amber smiled.
"Sure, Hammy. I think I saw some the other day. Let's go, I'll show you where"
Hammy beamed and dashed away, with Amber close behind.
"Hey, wait for me, you guys!"protested Fern, following. Jasmine smiled.
"I'm going to go see the humans screaming and yelling. It's bound to be funny"
she said. Indeed, there were still noises from the angry humans.
"I think I'll pass."said Stella, and Tiger nodded.
"I shall stay with Stella."he said. Jasmine shrugged.
"Jeepers,"said Penny(A/N: Had to do that. Just had to.),"the kids shouldn't hear that any louder."Bucky, Spike, and Quillo's shoulders drooped.
"I don't think anyone should go back,"Verne said."My tail's tingling like crazy.
"The others seemed to agree, though oddly, Fern was silent.
"Fern?"Jasmine looked around."Where's Fern?"Nobody knew.Jasming groaned, then dashed through the trees, calling,"Fern? Fern"
"Jasmine!"The skunk's heart leapt. That was Fern! She sprinted towards the voice-
-and was suddenly swooped up in a net! She struggled desperately, but only succeeded in entangling herself more.
"Jasmine? Jasmine, where'd you go?"The skunk froze./There's probably more traps around here. I can't let Lily or the others get caught/"Jasmine?" The raccoon's voice was close now.
"Lily, get away! There's human traps!"she shouted, renewing her struggles. She became immoblized.
"Jasmine! What-eyaahhh!"Jasmine gasped as a series of shouts penetrated the air. The others must have come too, and been trapped. As heavy footfalls appraoched, Jasmine now realized what had happened to Fern.
A/N: Well, here it is. Hope it's as good as you guys hope for. Thanks again to my awesomely awesome reviewers.
