Stavi and Maully by Skihaas1 Stavi and Maully by Skihaas1
Stavi is a simple being, content to clean all day and night for the crew members on his starship. Maully (as he is named by the crew members) comes from the same aquatic planet, and stowed away with Stavi during the abductions by the cruel humans. The two became inseparable, and live a happy quiet life doing what they love... cleaning.

One day, Stavi was being bullied mercilessly by the other crew members. Stavi couldn't, nor would he ever think to defend himself, and withdrew as best he could from his attackers, but they wouldn't stop. Maully overheard the commotion and came sprinting to Stavi's side, biting 3 of the attackers.

This prompted the humans to lock Maully in a cage away from Stavi. For three days they were apart, and during the three days, Stavi cried and cried and cried, not doing any cleaning due to his sadness. The humans quickly noticed the ships decline in cleanliness, and tried to convince him to work, but it was no use. All he could blubber out was "Maully Maully Maully".

Much to the crews chagrin, they released Maully, deciding not to put him down, for nobody else volunteered to pick up custodial duties. The two were united, and continue cleaning to this day. Every once in a while, while taking a quick break from his duties, Stavi takes one simple glance at Maully, and cannot help but shed tears of joy for having such a loyal companion in his life.
