I sat in a bin with half a dozen clones. At least we started off that many but as time progressed our numbers decreased until there were only 2. Child after child passed by with out even a glance let alone a hug. One day a man walked in and scooped my companion out of the bin. He examined my friend but in the end replaced him and walked away.
Later he returned and plucked me out of the bin and gave me the same through exam. Expecting to be rejected, my previous rejected match and I are one and the same, I was acepted and purchased.
The man would surely wrap me as a present for a child or a girlfriend, I thought.
But instead I sat in the car night and day. When at last I was rescued I entered a modest bedroom of a small apartment and was placed on first one shelf, then another. By the time I was settled I realize that I was bought merely for decoration. Several days passed with nothing for me to do but sit - till one day the man lifted me from the shelf and embraced me. I hugged back with all my might pouring my love into him.
It took several name assignments till he found the right one - Cozy Snuggles! By the time he reached the right name he was sleeping with me. It took awhile longer before he took me places. I was impressed that he was never embarrassed to have me by him. He has been much more happy since we became a team.
