I, Louise, happened to flip onto the Disney Preschool channel one day and Karen came in. We both got so wrapped up in it, we watched it the next day too and laughed our stomachs to a point of hurting. Oh, the funny things one does notice when one looks too hard...*sigh*
So, we decided to combine our stupid brains a mash a fic where we met the movers. We don't know how we got to America. Perhaps we swam?
Disclaimer: Don't sue me, I don't own the Movers.
(Yes, these characters are based on IRL us. Enjoy the tormenting of our ugly personas).
"This is ridiculous, Louise!" Karen flipped her blonde hair over her shoulder, popping open a cellphone to check if she had any texts.
"Look, we need a place to stay and the commercial says they can fix any problem." Louise argued, pumping her thighs in a rhythmic fashion to move the bike.
Karen sat on the back of the bike, still filing through replies and forward messages.
"They are shady Americans." The blonde spat. "Can't we stay the night in a suitable hotel?"
"Well, these guys do it for free, no? They didn't mention any prices."
"Peh." Karen spat in disgust. "Nothing is free. Ever."
"So, what should we do today, little buddy?" Smitty asked the warehouse's resident rodent. The mouse shrugged, squeaking something only the mover in the cowboy hat could understand. The squeak earned the mouse a pat on the head and a, "Great idea!" from Smitty.
"I don't think we'll ever get a customer." Scott complained, sinking onto the couch.
"Don't worry!" Rich said, hopping off the sofa. "I'm sure any second, a customer will walk through that door!"
Knock, knock, knock!
"See?" Rich grinned.
"It's probably Nina." Dave said. "I'll get it!" He ran to the door and opened it wide. "Hey Ni…na…"
"Uh…my name is Louise. Not 'Nee-nah'." The skinny, pale girl stood taller than Dave. Her long black hair reached around her thighs and she wore an excessive amount of black eye shadow. The bright movers' faces sunk inward a bit at the sight, so unused to seeing such a strange girl.
"Er… hola mademoiselle!" Rich said. Karen, who had just come up behind her friend, laughed.
"Oh, enchanté monsieur!" Karen said happily, a giggle still escaping.
"Ah, we speak English just fine." Louise said, a bit perturbed.
"Of course." Rich said. "Now, you and your daughter must have a problem, right?"
It was Louise's turn to break into peals of laughter.
"I'll have you know I am four years older than her!" Karen exclaimed, pointing a finger to the taller girl.
"Sorry. I'm Rich!" Rich introduced himself, apologizing to a very upset Karen.
"And I'm Dave!"
"I'm Scott! You can tell because I wear these goggles. They can see through anything!" He pulled them over his eyes.
"Eh!?" Karen's eyes shot open wide. She slapped the man on the shoulder, her other arm wrapped around her chest.
"We are in need of a place to stay." Louise said, cutting in. "But it seems like maybe you are not the people I should ask. So thank you, but we must be-,"
"Nonsense!" Dave shouted, grabbing Louise by the arm. "We can fix anything! We're-,"
"The Imagination Movers!" They exclaimed at once.
"You…move imaginations?" Louise questioned. Scott laughed.
"Not exactly. But we can help fix any problem!"
"Well, my problem is not like the kind you can fix with tools…" Louise waved her hand up and down Dave's jumpsuit.
"The only tools we use are our imaginations!" Rich explained.
"I just need a hotel. Au rev-,"
"We can help with that!" Dave exclaimed as Louise was about to bolt out the door.
"Yeah!" Smitty chimed in. "There's a "Spare Room" room right in the warehouse!"
"Oh Louise, how could I ever have doubted you? This will be perfect!" She smiled at the boys.
"She's right! I can show you the room, and then we can give you a tour of the warehouse!" Rich beamed, starting ahead of them down the hallway.
"I have my eye on that one." Karen whispered to her friend in French. "He can help me find my bed too!" She sniggered, while Louise felt the little blood that circulated in her white face drain out completely.
"That's not funny!" Louise hissed.
"What's not funny? I love knock-knock jokes!" Scott piped up.
"Oh, nothing!" Karen said, pulling Louise along.
"Smitty is the one in love with the mouse, Rich is the one secretly having a thing with the Nina, Dave is a bit confused but most likely straight, and Scott...oh Scott...you set yourself up for the one a bit more curly than the others. That's all I'm saying." ~Karen
"This fic is seriously going to prove how weird you two are. I cannot wait to read." ~Matthieu
"Do some real work, Louise." ~Tristan
