Grumbling, 362 searched through her luggage for the nth time. And came up, just as she had the first kajillion times, totally hairbrushless.
This was stupid. She needed to look her best for the Grand Brat, the second highest rank in the GKND, but how was she supposed to do that if she couldn't brush her hair?! V8 only had a tiny little comb, that wouldn't work on a girl's hair at all.
Desperate, she was forced to go to her last resort to ask for help.
"Numbuh One, do you happen to know where there's a hairbrush I can borrow? I lost mine."
She couldn't blame him for looking confused, given his... condition. "Uh, well, I'm not really the one to ask, but maybe one of the officers... let me ask a few people and see what I can come up with."

After a moment's hesitation, she started brushing with slow, paranoid care, staring at the mirror in case any of the tentacles tried anything funny.
To her relief, it actually seemed to work out okay. The tentacles did their own thing, and put her hair into something that wasn't totally her usual style, but it was still way better than bedhead. And they seemed like they were gelling her hair at the same time, too! With what, she probably didn't want to think about too hard.
They'd arrived at Asteroid The Biggest Asteroid In This Solar System just a few hours ago, and were lucky enough to be able to see the Grand Brat today, if they hurried to fit the schedule. They'd had just enough time to freshen up while the Grand Brat was...More Cartoon Sex Stories...
