You glance through all the stuffed toys in the zoos gift shop, stopping at the oddly colored tigers and knelt in front of them. Your hand passed the lilac and mint green tigers, lifting up the last pink toy and standing. You already had the other colors, blinking as you notice the little girl with wide, puppy dog eyes staring at what was in your hand, smiling softly and handed her the toy. You could do without and you just made a little girls day. She ran off with the biggest smile.
‘Well at least someone is having fun…” you think, sighing as you cross your arms and leaned back on your one foot.
“That was a very kind thing you did, Ms.” A voice spoke softly from behind you, causing you to jump slightly and blush.
“I figure she’ll have more use for it then I would.” You laugh slightly, hitching your bag of art supplies higher and made your way to the jewelry. Maybe you’d find a cool pair of earrings or something.
“If you could have anything from here, what would it be?” the man asked, causing you to turn and look at him.
“Ah?” you blink in shock at the man who was following you around. It was Tom Hiddleston, your idol and the man responsible for your wanting to change to be a better person. ‘If I could have anything here it would be you.” You think to yourself, covering your laugh and shook your head. “Um… not sure, probably one of the large stuffed animals. But those cost way too much.”
“What’s your favorite animal?” Tom leaned closer to you as you continued browsing.
“Wolf, tiger, panda… Snow leopard. Any big cat, really.” You shrug. “And you?”
“It’s a hard decision…” he winked at you as you glanced at him.
“Hm… well, see you around.” You wave slightly, walking out and heading to the zoo exit.
“Ms. Could you please follow me?” a security officer said to you as you reached the gate.
“Is something wrong?” you ask.
“Just come with me, please.” He led you to the side and just stood there.
“Officer?” you question after several minutes of silence.
“Ah, here we are.” He nodded to another security officer as they approached. You turned and stared in shock at the large stuffed tiger the person had in tow.
“W-what’s going on?’ you glance between the two.
“This is for you. It’s been paid for. Here’s the note that came with it.” The officer handed you a note.
‘What the hell…” you think, opening the paper and read it.
“One good turn deserves another. May we meet again if fate allows it.
Your eyes lit up before you stared at the tiger. Forget the tiger, you had Hiddleston’s signature. You smiled softly.
“Thank you, sire, I can take it from here.” You took the stuffed animal and headed to your car, a wide grin on your face as you squeezed the tiger.
