As Calvin grew up, each day he would play games with his stuffed tiger, Hobbes. But he knew that Hobbes was more than a striped cotton bag, he was a friend, no, a part of the family. But Calvin's mom showed signs of fright, as she wanted Calvin to grow up and get real friends. Calvin was from then on forced to play with classmates at the playground, though it showed no progress. Taunts, curses, and signs were shown from his 4th grade enemys. This made him have more and more eagerness for Hobbes. Every day when Hobbes ran and "pounced" on him, it made him feel more relived to finally be with his only buddy. One day, though, this all changed, as Calvin was older. He saw on his first day of school, the most beautiful girl he had ever seen. And that, was 16 year old Susie Jerkins, Calvin's biggest enemy. He walked up to her and said, "Susie, is that you? It's been so long!" Then him and Susie walked to their lunch table and caught up on each other. Each day Hobbes collected more and more dust, as Calvin would go to places with Susie. It seemed like every day Hobbes mouth was turning into a frown, magically.
"Damn it! Where's that box I wanted to give to Susie!" said the now 19-year old Calvin. As he stumbled over his junk in his old room that he was now preparing for collage, Hobbes fell over him. "What the Hell?" He said as he was gazing into it's eyes. He felt the soft fuzz on him and said with mystery "Hobbes?". For a second, it seemed like the stuffed tiger winked at him. Suddenly, Calvin felt younger, like as if the room was a country to him, and he swore he heard his mom's voice, aged magically, said "Calvin, the bus is here," and various other phrases that he deemed "annoying" when he was little. For the rest of that day, instead of cleaning his room or taking a shower, he played with his truly reborn Hobbes. That is where the story ended, and where another began. Calvin and Hobbes until the end.
