I reallyreallyreally want to do this with someone aha
A world where a species of humans was discovered that evolved near identical to our own- except for their height. At a mere few inches tall, this new species has been deemed too helpless by the general population, thus to be treated as pets needing constant protection. Different variants were found as well- mice hybrids, satyrs, all only truly sharing one trait- their small height. At first, they were treated well, almost as equals. As time went on, though, the 'Tinies' as they were dubbed were soon viewed as no more than intelligent pets, to be bought and sold and treated however one deemed fit. Hundreds of tinies are rescued from abuse every year in the larger cities, and even more experience smaller forms that have been deemed okay by society.
Person A wasn't expecting to find themself in the Tiny section of the pet store, but there they were. They also weren't expecting to find one of the tinies (Person B) had a shock collar to 'deal with behavioral problems,' and had been in and out of the shop for the past six months. Least of all, they didn't expect themselves to be buying the tiny.
