Making Up

Artistic freedom commission for nazznikonanuke and okamiothniel. I love getting the chance to create little scenes such as this one. Little story below is also by me.

Okami arrived home after another long day of work, only to find that his bored little one had gotten into mischief in his absence by “decorating” the walls. His patience was already frayed thin by the stresses of his workday, and it resulted in the little weasel getting a few firm swats on the bottom before being sent to sulk on the couch.

Okami set to clean up the wall in a huff. Only when he began to scrub the crayon marks off the wall did he realize what was drawn, which he had been too annoyed and tired to pay attention to at first glance. And while it was still a naughty thing to do, he felt a pang of regret over his rashness.

Scrubbing the wall could wait. He brought over one of Nazz’s favorite sippy cups with some orange juice, and they sat together for a while, comforting one another, before resuming clean-up together. “How about on my next day off we go to the park together, just like in your drawing”, suggested Okami kindly, before adding with a wink, “and maybe we can stop by the store for a sketchbook on the way back.”

Nazz gave his leg a hug, happy once again, with all forgiven between the two.
