He looked up at me with an odd expression, and then he gritted his teeth and scrunched up his face in anger.  The thought crossed my mind that for a youngling, he had a face only a mother could love.  

That brought to mind rumors I’d heard that goblins didn’t have mothers—at least not goblin mothers, anyway…

I shook my head to clear those unpleasant thoughts, and realized the youngling had turned his head.  He was no longer looking up at me, he was looking past me.  It was almost as if he were looking at someone else…

Suddenly, he yelled in a deep and authoritative voice:  “SNATCH ‘ER, YA RUNTS!!”

I was so fascinated by the squig licking my hand that I almost forgot about the youngling.

The poor little guy was struggling to push himself up on one elbow and he wiped his nose.

“Owwie…” he sniffled.  He looked angry, but his eyes watered as if he was about to cry.  

That made me feel even worse about dropping him and scolding him.  

Once again, I bent over to comfort him, keeping a close eye on his drooling squig and it’s inquisitive tongue.

“Gosh, I’m so so sorry, little guy…I didn’t mean to drop you, but you startled me…”

He glanced upward as I reached out my hand to him.

“Come on,” I encouraged him.  “Let’s go find your parents or your friends.”

The poor youngling hit the new-fallen snow at my feet with a wet ‘PLOP’ sound.  

I gasped.  The poor little guy!  

He was so tiny that he really fell a long way down.  I hoped he wasn’t hurt!

“I’m so sorry, little guy,” I called out.  “You startled me…”

I started to bend over to see if he was alright, and his squig snarled at me protectively.

“Easy there, big guy,” I said softly to the squig, holding my open palm out to him.

The squig sniffed my hand twice, then began to lap at it happily with his long tongue.  I’d heard that squigs were voracious, and he did look intimidating with all those teeth—but he was just like a friendly puppy.  

He just wanted to lick and sniff everything!

“Owww!”  I cried out, in shock and surprise.  I couldn’t believe the little youngling bit me!  I was so startled that I yanked my hand back.

“That was rude!”  I scolded him.

I didn’t even realize I’d let him go until I saw him falling away from me.

I instantly felt bad—I didn’t mean to drop him!

Despite my soft reassuring voice, my helpful offer, and my big smile, I must have frightened him.

Or, perhaps the youngling took offense to having his prisoner pick him up and try to hug him.

For whatever reason, the little guy lunged forward and bit me, right on the hand!!!

Thankfully his sharp little teeth landed on my glove, and didn’t break through…but still hurt!!

‘Oh dear,’ I thought.  ‘Now I’ve really upset the little guy, and probably scared him, too!’

The youngling’s game was fun, but I knew I’d better see about getting him back to his parents soon, they were probably worried about him.  And I still had a job to do…I didn’t like the idea of him being out here all alone with an ogre roaming the area.

“Are you lost, little guy?”  I asked, holding him up closer to my face so we could see eye-to-eye.  I figured I’d be a lot less intimidating that way.  “You can come with me, if you like!”

“Ya wants scary?  Jus’ ya waits, girlie.  Ya sees how scary we gets wit’ humie pris’ners.”  

The little guy was getting agitated, but he was really committed to his little game!  It was so cute that he thought he and his little squig had captured me.  But I could keep playing along. 

“Oh, my goodness…I’ve never had such a fierce and bold captor before!”

The youngling narrowed his eyes at me.  “We’s gunna makes ya pays fer di’repectin’ us,” he growled. “Now be’s still, so we’s kin gets some bounds on ya,” he commanded.

Oh this was too much!  He even wanted to tie me up!  Maybe he’d want me to walk behind his squig on a tether, too!  That actually sounded kinda fun…but first, I still needed to cuddle him.  

I reached out and grasped him under the arms, lifting him right off his little squig mount—which was leaning forward sniffing me and trying to lick at my legs! 

“Oh, my goodness, I could just eat you up!” I giggled.

“H-hey!  Put me down, yeh filthy ‘uumie!  ‘Ow dare yeh!” he screeched.

“Ey!  Stop!” the youngling commanded.  “Don’ come no closer, I’s warnin’ ya!”  He kept fiddling with his toy crossbow, trying to fix it while keeping one eye on me.  

“Stay ‘ere ya is!”  he said, scowling and trying to sound bold and brave.

Of course, that just made me want to get a better look at him and his little orange squig.  I totally forgot I was supposed to play along that I was his prisoner.

“Eeeeeee!”  I exclaimed when I was standing right in front of him.  “You’re so precious!”

He stopped working on the crossbow and stared up at me, as if not sure how to respond.  

I tried to make him feel better about his broken toy, and let him know I wasn’t a threat.
“And your toy crossbow looks very real and oh so scary!” I gushed.

‘Psssssssh!’  

His little toy crossbow made a funny little sound when he pulled the trigger.

I gasped, and the youngling got a dismayed look on his face.  

“Awwww!  Ihh broke!” he whined.

He had such a forlorn and defeated look on his face, I couldn’t help feeling sorry for the little guy.  

And just when he had ‘caught’ his first real prisoner, too!  

I felt so badly for him…but his sad little look made him somehow even more irresistible!

“Wha??”  He exclaimed  “You IS my pris’ner, stupid blonde ‘umie!”

“Of course I am!”  I giggled.  “Oh, this game is so much fun!  I’ve never been the prisoner of such a fierce captor before!”

The youngling stared at me, as if he didn’t understand what I was saying to him.  I was going to have to really play along if I was going to get him safely back home.  

“Are you going to take me back to your lair?” I asked. 

“Gaaahhh!” he muttered.  “Ferget it!”  And he pulled the trigger of his little crossbow!
