This is a new Adventures Of Blinky Bill fanfic of mine, this time centered around Slick Possum who has grown to tie with Shifty Dingo as my favorite character. Rated M for sexual themes, some gore and strong language. You're probably gonna feel sorry for Slick in it, too. All characters are copyright to Yoram Gross except my OCs the villain Gavin Buildmore, a possum named Stan and young dingo boy named Carter.
It was a warm sunny morning outside and Nutsy was out and running as fast as her legs could carry her. She had two tickets clutched in her paws, tickets for the final showing at the possum cinema before the place was going to be torn down. She had to make a decision which friend she wanted to go with. There was Blinky, Flap, Splodge, Marcia and Shifty and only one of them could go with her.
Running into the lunch area, she saw the 5 sitting at the table and slammed the tickets down, "I...won...the...tickets...from...Slick's...contest..."
"That's great, Nutsy. So, who are you gonna take with you?" Flap asked.
"Just...let...me...catch...my...breath..." Nutsy panted.
"I know who Nutsy will go with. She's gonna be going with me cause I'm her brother." Blinky said.
"Nuh uh. I'm gonna be the lucky one." Splodge replied.
"You're both wrong! Nutsy and I need our girls only time. No boys allowed!" Marcia barked
"I have an idea, how about we put a bunch of cards in a hat and whoever gets the Ace gets to go with Nutsy?" Shifty asked.
"You're probably gonna cheat, you rotten little dingo." Blinky said, pointing at Shifty.
Shifty's ears wilted, "I...I'm not gonna cheat. How dare you think that."
"Once a dingo, always a dingo." Marcia said.
"Yeah." Splodge added, "You never can trust them."
Shifty began to sniffle a little, a warm tear falling from his right eye and sliding down his snout, "Why...why...why do you have to all be so mean to me? I...I...I was only making a suggestion. Y-you still don't trust me after all this time?..."
Flap rolled his eyes at Shifty's tears, "Here come the waterworks."
Nutsy sat down and put her arm around the little dingo. She leaned forward and kissed the warm tear off his face, causing everyone to flinch in disgust.
"Did...did you just...kiss his tears away?" Marcia asked, annoyed.
"That's disgusting!" Flap chimed in.
"Well, I guess that answers our question on who she goes with." Splodge said.
"Yeah, what on Earth does she see in him, anyway?" Marcia grumbled, annoyed.
"I hope you're all happy, making Shifty cry again. I've already made my decision and none of you are going to the cinema, only Shifty and I." Nutsy scolded. Shifty let out a hurt whimper and another tear rolled down his cheek. Nutsy leaned in and pressed her lips against the teardrop and licked it off Shifty's face, savoring its salty taste on her tongue. She then cuddled the dingo even tighter.
"Ewwww! That's just...that's just...so GROSS of you, Nutsy!" Marcia screamed.
"I actually quite like it." Shifty said blushing a little, "That's how us dingoes show affection."
"Nutsy, are you realky a dingo in disguise?" Blinky asked jokingly.
"No, I just think you're all terrible for treating Shifty so badly. Maybe you should step in his shoes for once and see what it feels like to be picked on all the time." Nutsy said harshly, glaring at her friends.
Blinky sighed, "Yeah, I guess you have a point. I'm sorry, Shifty."
"Me too." Splodge added.
"I guess we have been a little harsh on him." Flap said.
Nutsy sighed, "You guys can apologize all you want. Shifty's our friend and friends don't make friends cry no matter what. You're all just a bunch of bullies who don't deserve rewards. Shifty and I are going and that is final. Come, Shifty. Let's get ready at our homes."
Shifty nodded and hugged Nutsy back, "Thanks, Nutsy."
Nutsy scratched the dingo behind his long floppy ears, "You're very welcome, Shifty."
"Hmph. I never knew Nutsy could have such an attitude." Flap grumbled.
"What annoys me more than anything is she's going out with a dingo. Seriously, what's so great about him? He cries all the time and cowers when you say boo and he's not very attractive, either." Marcia said.
"Nutsy made her choice and I think we should all respect that." Blinky said.
Marcia got up from the table, "Well, I'm gonna sabotage their little date. When Shifty's not looking, I'm gonna hide in his backpack and hitch a ride with them. You'll see."
"Why do you want to go to the movie so badly, anyway?" Flap asked Marcia.
Marcia blushed a little, "Well, you see...I...um"
"I know." Blinky said, "It's Slick, isn't it? Every once in a while I saw you making goo-goo eyes at him back when I was kidnapped."
"WHAT? I wasn't staring at Slick, he's an adult you know!" Marcia shouted angrily.
"Ooooh, I think someone has a crush!" Splodge said teasingly.
"Shut your pie-hole Splodge, I DO NOT! But he's much cuter than Shifty Dingo. Nutsy has no taste in men!" Marcia yelled.
"Whatever, Marcia. Go have fun sabotaging the lovebirds date." Blinky chuckled.
Meanwhile, Shifty was talking with his mother, "So is it all right if Nutsy and I go to the movies?"
"You're going to watch a movie with a koala?" Ma dingo asked.
Shifty nodded, "Nutsy and I are gonna go on a little date. I was the friend she picked to watch a movie with after she won tickets at a radio contest. So can I go mom, please?" Shifty began whimpering softly and looked up at his mother with sad puppydog eyes.
Ma Dingo grumbled a bit, "Oh, all right. Stubborn kid, you probably wouldn't take no for an answer."
Shifty Dingo hopped up and down with joy, wagging his big bushy tail when Daisy entered the room, "Daisy! Daisy! Daisy! Guess what?"
"What is it now, Shifty?" Daisy said, rolling her eyes.
"Oh, Daisy. I'm so excited! I get to go to the movies with Nutsy right before the theater gets torn down. Isn't that great?" Shifty asked, wagging his tail like crazy.
"Yeah, whatever." Daisy said, getting back to reading her magazine.
Suddenly, Danny walked out of the bedroom and Shifty dashed up to him, "Hey Danny. I'm gonna be seeing a movie with Nutsy. Isn't that great?"
Danny sighed, "Really? Nutsy? I question your taste in women, Shifty. You could do so much better than that."
"You're just jealous I'm going on a date while your sitting in this dump." Shifty said, crossing his arms.
Danny rolled his eyes, "Oh please, I've been out on dates before."
"You're always too busy scheming to think about women." Daisy said, turning a page of her magazine.
"Anyway, I'm gonna pack my bags. You know, in case something happens." Shifty said.
"What a paranoid little kid." Danny said, shaking his head.
And so, Shifty ran into his room and began putting some snacks in his backpack. He didn't have enough money to buy snacks at the theater himself and he was sure Slick didn't mind if he brought his own snacks. Putting some graham crackers in his backpack and a few juiceboxes, Shifty felt the sudden urge to go to the bathroom. The dingo stormed off to the family restroom. Marcia watched the whole thing from his window decided now was the perfect chance to stowaway and climbed into his room, quickly running up to Shifty's backpack and climbing into it. Shifty came back from the bathroom and opened his closet to see what he could wear for the date. His eyes darted over to a sleeveless denim vest and he took it off the hanger and put it on. He admired himself in the mirror a little, blushing. He then flung the backpack over his shoulder, not even noticing Marcia who was safely tucked inside.
Meanwhile, Nutsy was in her room and spraying perfume on herself. She had some gumnuts tucked away in the pocket of her new red dress so she was prepared to buy popcorn. She knew Shifty's family wasn't exactly rich but she was totally cool with paying for the date because of how much she loved Shifty.
Blinky walked into the room and coughed a bit, "Gee, enough perfume there, Nutsy. Are you trying to date Shifty or suffocate him?"
Nutsy glared at Blinky, "In case you don't know, Shifty loves the smell of flowers and want to smell nice for him."
"You really must like Shifty, huh? Never seen a koala and dingo fall in love before." Blinky commented.
"Dingo or not, he's sweet, cute, gentle, funny and he's actually pretty smart when you get to know him well enough." Nutsy explained, "You know, you shouldn't pick on him so much. He's got a good heart, you know."
Blinky sighed, "I suppose you're right. He's a nice guy and all but I think he's kind of weird."
"Weird? How rude! He is a little awkward at times but that's what makes him so cute." Nutsy said.
Suddenly, Shifty rushed into the koala house all excited, "Nutsy! Nutsy! Nutsy! Your father's waiting in the car." the dingo said hopping up and down excitedly.
"Awwww, Shifty. You look so adorable in that denim vest." Nutsy said.
Shifty blushed a bit, "Gee, you really think so? I think that perfume of yours smells quite lovely."
Blinky smiled at the two, "Be sure to say hi to Slick for me, okay?"
"Of course we will." Nutsy said, chuckling.
"You have our word." Shifty agreed.
Meanwhile, Marcia was hiding inside Shifty's backpack. Despite the high level of discomfort, she tried her best not to make any noise to give herself away. She wanted to ruin the dingo and koala's date so badly that they'd both run home in tears. And then, she could have a private talk with Slick Possum all to herself.
Nutsy and Shifty hopped into Nutsy's fathers car, "Have you kids got everything? Tickets? Money for snacks?" Nutsy's father asked.
"I brought some money for popcorn." Nutsy said.
"I brought some emergency snacks." Shifty said, wagging his big bushy tail with a huge smile on his face.
"Awww, you're so silly, Shifty." Nutsy giggled, ruffling the dingo's headfur and scratching his ears. Shifty smiled, his tongue lolling from his mouth.
And so, Shifty and Nutsy sat in the backseat of Nutsy's father's car as the car took off. Nutsy put her arm around the shy little dingo and gazed deep into his soft puppydog eyes. The longer she looked into his eyes, she began to feel her heart melting slowly, "Has anyone told you that you have beautiful eyes, Shifty? They're just so soft and gentle."
Shifty blushed a little, swishing his tail "No, no one's ever told me that before. Your eyes are quite lovely too."
Nutsy blushed, "Why thank you, Shifty. You're such a gentleman. If it wasn't for you, I'd never have found my father."
"Nutsy has a point there, you're a true hero, Shifty." Nutsy's father said.
Shifty blushed even me, "Gee, I'm no hero. I'm just a cowardly little dingo. Why are you always being so nice to me?"
Nutsy kissed Shifty on his nose and he blushed even more, "Don't be so modest, Shifty. I think you're beautiful just the way you are. You don't have to be a perfect superman for me to love you. You're kind, sweet, sensitive, caring. I don't understand why the others treat you so bad. Someday they'll learn to like you, even Marcia."
Meanwhile, Marcia was still in Shifty's backpack listening to their conversation and making mock gagging noises. Apparently, the two of them together was way too sugary for her. She felt like she was gonna spend the afternoon with a couple dewey-eyed, lovey-dovey dummies.
Nutsy's father began flipping through radio stations and a soft rock station started playing the song "You're The Inspiration" by Chicago and Shifty Dingo and Nutsy began singing along in unison:
You're the meaning in my life
you're the inspiration.
You bring feeling to my life
you're the inspiration.
Wanna have you near me
I wanna have you hear me sayin':
No one needs you more than I need you.
Marcia was trying to swallow her own vomit. She absolutely hated love songs, especially ones by Chicago. She also despised Shifty's singing voice. To her, it was like nails on a chalkboard. So nasally and raspy sounding. The combination of both made her sick to her stomach and she'd rather have to drink cold medicine than have to listen to Shifty singing sappy love songs. The mouse covered her ears and grumbled softly to herself inside the dingo's backpack. It took everything in her power to not jump out of Shifty's backpack and strangle the life out of the dingo.
There car kept driving and soon dust storms began blowing in. They knew the were about to reach their destination.
