Basil looked in his room for the object he seek, but huffed in frustration. He left downstairs and saw Ratigan reading another Stephen King book on the sofa and heard Isabelle in the kitchen. He took a deep breath and decided to ask the professor his question.
"Ratigan." he said, seeing that the rat hasn't heard him.
"Ratigan." he said a little louder, still no answer.
"Ratigan!" he yelled, making the rat jump. He then looked at Basil with a snarl.
"What do you want?" he snarled, glaring at the detective.
"Be nice." Isabelle said as she walked into the room, "What are you looking for, Basil?"
"My deerstalker." he said, seeing Isabelle's confused look, "My hat. I can't find it anywhere.:
"Are you planning to go somewhere?" Ratigan said, making Basil glare at him.
"Of course not, but I would like to have all of my things in order."
Isabelle looked thoughtful for a moment and then snapped her fingers.
"I think Lily has it in her room."
The rodents blanched at that; Lily's room has officially been declared forbidden territory. Basil sighed as he walked to the stairs and stood in front of the blondes door. He knocked and hearing nothing, opened the door and walked in.
The first thing he noticed was her bed was covered with red satin sheets and had a canopy over her bed. She had a night-table next to her bed with small bottles on it. There was also a bureau against the wall. Then, he noticed that there was a mirror over her bed. He wondered briefly why she even had a mirror on her ceiling.
Basil shook his head to focus and looked around the room, seeing his hat on the bed knob. He quickly took it and jumped when a voice spoke up.
"Whatcha doing here, Basil?"
He looked behind him and blushed, for there stood Lily wearing a small towel around her body and her hair was wet. Apparently, she just came out of the shower. She smiled at him like a cat that caught a canary and walked up to him, making him back up a little.
"I-I was just looking for my hat and Miss Diaz said it was here and I...I'll be leaving now."
He quickly went to the door, But Lily was quicker, she got in front of him and blocked his way with one of her long legs.
"What's wrong, Basil?" she purred, "Getting nervous?"
"Yes, I am." he said with hesitation in his voice, "May I please leave now?"
Lily pouted and put her leg down, letting Basil leave her room. As he left, she said;
"Be seeing you around, Basil."
She then closed the door, making Basil stand out in the hall with his hat in his hand.
