All Things End: Part 115
Chapter 115: Bedridden
“Alright, I put him down in that room with the extra bed.” Nina spoke as she re-entered her bedroom. “I made sure to change the sheets because that bed hasn't been used in a long time.”
Computer let out a semi-sigh of relief. He was still tense, and he was probably going to remain that way for a long while. Courage hadn't shown any signs of waking up and there was a very good chance that he might remain that way for several days, if not more.
He fidgeted with his paws as he stood there. “Don't you think one of us should at least keep an eye on him?” He asked.
“He has a terminal illness!” Nina argued. “If he starts getting worse, it's not like there's anything we can do for him.”
“I suppose you're right.” He admitted, bowing his head.
He hated knowing that there was nothing he could do to help his friend. Keeping Courage safe was his job after all. To fail at that was to practically fail at hi

Chapter 114: A Dog's Innocent Affection
Coffee, the greatest thing about being a flesh creature.
Computer joyfully grabbed a cup in the lobby and headed back into the kitchen with it. He sipped away at the cup while he paced around the table in circles, trying to stave off his sleepiness. He'd already decided that he wasn't going to bed tonight, not so long as Courage was as well. He wanted to spare the dog of anymore of his nightmares and the only way he was going to do that was by never being asleep when he was too. They'd already risked it earlier today when Courage had apparently taken a nap while he was sleeping as well, and that couldn't be allowed to happen again.
“Maybe I should just go rest inside my real body.” He muttered to himself. “I won't have to deal with all those awful nightmares in there.”
They'd been getting progressively worse lately. After the one that had helped unlock his power, they now had a certain sort of reality to them that made it

Chapter 113: Of Tall Men And Dog Treats
Courage was forced to abandon Nina's bedroom in order to escape Computer's constant moaning and groaning as he rolled around in his sleep. That girl was pretty much right to call him a drama queen. Even as he slept he still acted like his stomachache was about to kill him.
Regardless, Courage decided to get himself comfortable in the lobby instead. Nina pulled out a blanket for him to lay on and he sat there for awhile. As the afternoon rolled on, he couldn't keep himself from getting tired again and eventually fell asleep. He wasn't sure how long he managed to nap but he was shocked back into wakefulness when he heard Nina yelling.
“Hey, Nina, is something going on?” He asked, sleepily raising his head up off the blanket.
There was a horrible, panicky feeling in the pit of his stomach that he couldn't shake off no matter how hard he tried. When she didn't answer his question, he looked up to find the desk that she was supposed to be

Chapter 112: A Day In The Life Of A Dog And Computer
Around noon, Courage was awoken by Nina's dad rapping on the door. The exhausted ferret girl raised her head from the pillow and groaned as her father let himself in.
“It's your turn to take the lobby.” He said with a yawn. “I need to get some sleep.”
“Alright, alright.” She muttered, not sounding particularly happy about it. “I'll keep an eye out for customers until, um, how about seven or eight?”
“Sure, that's plenty of time.” He agreed.
Courage watched as he left the room. As soon as he was gone, he let his muzzle hit the bed again. He was so tired that he could hardly keep his eyes open.
“Sorry, Cour. I gotta go.” Nina spoke, hopping out of bed. She looked just about as tired as he knew he probably did. “I can probably get a nap in while I'm down there. Customers don't show up very often anyway. I'll just get some food warmed up and then I'll be off to

Chapter 34: System Error
Computer continued to talk about as much as he possibly could. He brought up a great deal of different things and not all of them were bad. In fact, a great deal of them were actually pretty funny. When it became apparent that Courage was willing to listen to whatever he had to say, he seemed to start avoiding his more unhappier memories and focus on the happier ones. Of course, no matter what he talked about, he always seemed to paint his old owners in a very cynical light. It seemed that whenever he spoke of a previous owner, his tone would become very hateful, but he'd often leave out the reasons why he felt that way. He seemed to be outright avoiding any particular abuses he had endured.
It admittedly bothered Courage at just how vengeful he seemed to be. As humorous as some of his stories were, nearly all of them dealt with him tricking his owners into doing something embarrassing, or worse. It seemed that back then his life had only revolved around

Chapter 111: The File
“YOU LEFT ME HERE ALL BY MYSELF?” Nina screamed. “My head could have been cracked open for all you knew!”
Computer let out an exasperated sigh. “And what was I supposed to do? Let that faker haul Courage off without a fight?”
“You could have at least checked to make sure I was okay!”
They continued to argue about it for several minutes longer. Both he and Courage had spent the last twenty minutes dragging his now lifeless body back to the room where Nina had been knocked out. Thankfully, it hadn't taken her very long to wake back up. Less thankfully, she's was about as angry as one might expect her to be.
“Look, can't we just call it a night?” Computer begged. “My body isn't going to cause anymore trouble and I'm about to keel over! Worst of all, I still need to check and make sure that 'thing' isn't lurking around in my system.”
“Okay, okay.” She yawned. “I'm going to bed th

Chapter 110: Rage Against The Machine
Entering the room with slow and silent steps, Courage was greeted only by boxes and other random items. Like every other room in the building, this one was filled to the brim with various things as well. The boxes were neatly plied all the way up to the ceiling and there was only just enough room to walk around even for someone as small as him.
Where had Computer's body gone then? He couldn't see it anywhere and unless the imposter had turned it's screen off, he couldn't spot any light coming from it either. He suspected that it was hiding in among the cluttered boxes, but even then, it should have been giving off a noticeable glow no matter where it had gone.
“Where are you?” He called out, feeling particularly brave. “I know you're in here! Come out!”
A soft creaking sound caught his attention from somewhere behind him and he whipped around just in time to see the door slowly inching shut. The imposter Computer was standin
