[M+Non-Anthro+Aardvark] The Aardvark and the Ladybug
« on: August 01, 2018, 01:31:56 PM »
This is my first story here, although I've posted it on my DeviantArt account around a month ago. I hope you people enjoy it :)



In the dry plains of Africa, around late evening, a creature roamed around, searching for something. The sun had almost set, making the sky turn red. The wind was dry and weak, blowing what little grass and leaves were on the flat land. The creature’s sensitive ears twitched at the feeling of wind passing by its ears.

This creature was known as an aardvark. A strange creature; quadruped, an elongated head, rabbit-like ears, a thin, stretchy tongue, and a long snout. It was sniffing around, its nostrils just millimetres from touching the dirt. Dust was sucked into its nose with every inhale, but thick nose hair prevented them from going in too deep. A sharp exhale would do the trick to blow it all away. The aardvark did so, a cloud of dust flying into the air.

It continued along with its search - a search for food. He needed food, as he hadn’t eaten in a while now. He sniffed everywhere, pressing his snout into the dirt every few seconds or so. The smell of insects would usually waft up into his nostrils, but he hasn’t got that feeling for a good few hours now. “Come on, come on, there’s got to be an anthill somewhere…” The aardvark whispered to himself.

His search continued for a while, the aardvark getting tired. Just when he was about to stop to rest, a tiny, familiar scent reached his long snout. His eyes widened, and he immediately began to sniff at the ground, nostrils enlarging and shrinking. That smell was still there. He knew that smell all too well; it was the smell of tasty, delicious ants! “Hehe, I’m coming for you~” The aardvark said, grinning.

Locking onto the faint scent trail, he followed it for at least twenty seconds before stumbling across an anthill. Black ants crawled in and out of the hole of the tiny mountain of dirt. His snout was right on top of them, sniffing deeply, though not enough to suck them up. Yes, this anthill was the same one he smelled just now, the aardvark thought. It was now time to eat.

Bending over a little, his tongue jumped out of his mouth, grabbing the unsuspecting ants. He gobbled them up, and continued to munch at what unlucky ants he caught sight of. Panic arose within the anthill as all the ants scattered. Some went back into the anthill for safety, others scrambled   away to hide in the grass. The aardvark launched his tongue and mouth into the small hole of the anthill, eating and eating more and more ants. However, he was too distracted by his buffet to notice a teeny tiny potential threat.

It was a beetle. Not those large ones, it was one of the tiny ones, only millimetres in length. A ladybug, or a ladybird, as one would call it. Its colour was a dull brownish-black. Not very common, unlike the red one with black spots. The small beetle looked down at the catastrophe from slightly higher ground than the anthill, sad to see the inhabitants getting consumed by this massive creature. Oh well, that’s the circle of life for you, it thought. Then it noticed a peculiar thing not too far away.

The aardvark’s snout was on the slightly upper ground the ladybug was standing on. It moved from side to side as the aardvark tilted his head every now and then, dragging across the dirt lightly. The ladybug timidly approached the appendage, careful not to get smacked by it. She watched attentively as it moved to the left a bit, to the right a bit, jerk upwards, then move around some more. She paid even more attention at the nostrils, opening and closing as it breathed. Even though it was dark, she could still see that it was thick with protective hair. The ladybug knew how sensitive the snout must be, seeing as it reminded her of an elephant’s trunk.

“An… elephant’s… trunk?” The ladybug said quietly, a sneaky idea forming in her mind.

She remembered now, that those nasal passages were extremely sensitive. It was an advantage… but also a disadvantage. She had met a few other bugs during her travel across the plains. Some of them shared these amazing tales. One of them was about how a young elephant male had accidentally dug up an anthill with his trunk to grab a fruit on the ground, so the ants got mad and entered his trunk to get revenge. The bugs there described in detail the ferocious battle between the elephant and the ants, the ants obviously winning as the poor elephant’s trunk was flailing around. An epic ten minutes later, sneezes blasted out of the enormous nose, and the elephant got his lesson.

If so… she might be able to do the same to this aardvark. Plus, she’d have fun too!

While the aardvark was continuing his meal, she carefully crept closer to the snout. It was still moving around quite a lot, following the owner’s head. She laid a leg on it, preparing to climb up, but the snout untimely swished to the side, knocking her back. “Oof!” She gasped, falling. She didn’t give up though. The ladybug tried several times before she finally got a proper grip on the snout’s right nostrils. “Hrrghh… nrggh…” It was difficult, but she managed to get in. “Yes!” She shouted. She heard her voice echo from within the nostril, like a cave.

She decided to wait until the aardvark had finished eating, since it was simply to shaky to do anything for now. She struggled to remain on her feet at first, but eventually she found her footing. She later found out that she could walk around more stably, minus the occasional slip. The flesh inside was squishy, thought not very moist. She laid her back against the side, watching as the nostril rims get larger and smaller with each passing breath.

It was a few minutes before the aardvark finally thought that he had had enough food for now, and took off. Peeking backwards, the ladybug could see the destruction it had caused upon the anthill. She felt pitiful for them, but she was also filled with adrenaline for what she was about to do.

She then began her testing. Her legs poked at the pink flesh. Nothing happened. She poked some more, but it didn’t seem to register much to the aardvark; only a tiny vibration and nothing more. The ladybug knew that an aardvark’s snout is difficult to irritate. An aardvark would have to sniff up dust everyday, and it made it very resilient. Plus, all the nose hair blocked most of the dust away. What little dust managed to got in didn’t make much of an impact at all, aside from a snort.

She walked around in a circle, following the rim of the nostril. She felt air get pulled in in a jerk, indicating that the aardvark took a sharp sniff. Was it working, the bug thought, or is he only sniffing for more food? She couldn’t tell, but she continued to go around and round. She could feel the snout wiggle slightly under her feet, which made her lose balance and trip.

She tried poking while walking around, and scratched at the walls. It didn’t seem to be working too well. She tried poking harder, but every time she seems to get a result, she would lose her balance from getting shook around.

The aardvark, on the other hand, felt completely fine. Although, at times he did feel the slightest tingle in his snout. The aardvark simply took a sniff or wiggled the end of his snout a bit, and it would go away. Nothing would break his iron snout and will down, because nothing has ever made him scrunch up that long appendage of his, let alone sneeze. In fact, for him it might only the breeze blowing past the hair in his nostrils, making a little tickle. He didn’t take the itch seriously - it was just too weak!

The ladybug had tried several methods to get him to sneeze, even biting him - not really hard of course - but nothing prevailed. Well, it would be hard to make this aardvark sneeze, for more reasons than one. How could she, one tiny ladybug, make a creature this strong sneeze by herself!? She thought about the story about the ants and the elephant boy. Sure, there were tons of ants, that’s why the elephant sneeze. But…

When she thought about it, it did take ten minutes for the elephant to release his first sneeze. He was a toughie, the ants told her. So… maybe numbers don’t matter…

She then concocted a new plan, but she knew for this plan to work, she’ll have to be extra persistent… delicate and careful too. It’ll take a reaaaaaally long time, but she is sure that it’ll make this snout give its first ever sneeze.

She started her tickling. She didn’t go any deeper, only at the end of the snout. Within the right nostril only, she scratched, walked around, poked, pressed, and rubbed her back against the walls. Every time, the aardvark’s snout would respond with a sniff or wiggle, but she didn’t stop. Even though the tickles were minute, in time it will begin to grow and actually irritate the long nose.

The aardvark continued walking around, thinking that he should find a snack. The sun had set and the moon glowed brightly in the clear night sky. Lowering his head, the aardvark sniffed around as he walked, his snout barely touching the dusty ground. There was something annoying however, that little tickle from earlier. A sniff and wiggle would make it go away, but a few seconds later he would feel the same sensation again. He would, of course, sniff and wiggle his snout again, but it kept coming back, creating an endless cycle. He was beginning to wonder if he inhaled too much dust this time. Eh, it didn’t matter.

The ladybug couldn’t exactly feel the difference, but she knew that the aardvark must be getting at least a bit annoyed by this point. It had already been twenty minutes since she started. Despite only receiving the same response, she had expected it. Persistence is required to create as much itchiness as possible.

The aardvark quickly found another anthill, which he quickly dug up and devoured its inhabitants. His snout was still irritating him though, the tickle on it was relentless! It was, in fact, making him lose his appetite. A few minutes of snacking, the aardvark proceeded to leave. “Ugh, my snout’s quite itchier than usual…” He complained, sniffing a little.



The ladybug didn’t know how long had passed, but she guessed that it’s been an hour. An hour full of walking, poking, rubbing, scratching, and tickling. The aardvark must be feeling bothered. And his snout gave her the response she had been waiting for. He began sniffing a bit more than last time, and the flesh started to become this nice shade of pink. It was early signs of a sneeze, though not much. She didn’t care how tired she got, she had to keep going, or else she’ll lose the progress she’s made.

The little beetle decided to begin phase two of her plan. She moved deeper into the nostril, to the the middle part of the snout. Not too deep, and not too close to the end. She increased the number of itching activities she did, and put some more pressure to it as well. She rubbed against the wall harder, scratched and poked more, and scuttled back and forth from her new place to the nostril rims. “Hihihi, let me see how you’ll handle this tickle, Mister Aardvark~” She giggled.

The aardvark’s snout was getting rather disturbed now. He sniffled more, the tip of his snout twitching, nostrils flaring a bit. His ears flicked and his eyes squinted sometimes, feeling annoyed. “Th-this itch…” The aardvark groaned, the end of his snout wiggling. He could feel the itch spread up his snout, all the way to the middle part now. Even so, he still believed that it was just dust, so he gave a few snorts. The ladybug was blown back, but continued her torture.

After a while, the aardvark wanted to search for food again, so he needed to use his sense of smell to find insects. He usually lets his snout lead the way, tracking down any faint scents it picks up. This time, unfortunately, his snout didn’t help. The itch made it difficult to locate any scents, as his snout kept twitching and wiggling and sniffing. He tried sniffing harder, but the itch was really getting to him, teasing his poor nasal passages. The aardvark grunted, wishing that the itch would away soon.

The ladybug was having a great time right now. She had moved to the front to see how the situation was going for the aardvark. Sure enough, she could tell the creature was frustrated and very bothered. The nostril rims grew large and shrunk at a faster pace now, and vibrations rippled through the thick walls. Wrinkles were forming on the snout’s fleshy pad too. No breath is hitching yet though.

The ladybug was pleased of her result, including the fact that the aardvark was having problems detecting food. She watched with glee as the cave shrunk and grew, sniffing and pushing against the dusty ground, but to no avail. Wiggles under feet made her even more joyous. “Hihihi, tickle tickle tickle~” She teased, provoking the snout’s end even further by stretching a leg to scratch the septum. “Now, time for phase three!”.

She was hoping the next part of her session would make the pig-like animal give clear indications of going to sneeze, because so far it has been quite minor. Plus, she’s spent two hours in total already trying to make this stubborn aardvark sneeze.

She went even deeper into the right nostril, but not very far. The area here was bare, devoid of nose hair, so in this area she could move freely without plowing into them anymore. It was also kinda moist. She then began her attack, more ferocious than ever: quick jabs at the walls, both delicate and rough scratches onto the flesh, and also rubbing her shell harder against the floor and ceiling of the nostril, even moving around to the snout’s tip and back, getting every piece of the sensitive appendage irritated. She didn’t want to move to another nostril, thinking that this nostril would settle down and that she’d lose what she had worked so hard for.

“Heh… Hhh…” The aardvark was shocked at himself. Did his breath just hitch? The normal rigid and stiff snout of his was now beginning to scrunch up; he could see the wrinkles on it. He shook around his head, sniffed some more and wiggled the end of his snout, hoping to ease the itch. But too bad for him, the ladybug would not give up, even if shaken all over.

It was quite a sight to behold. The end of his snout was twitching and shaking like mad. The tip was flicking about, obviously irritated. The outer rims and a bit of his flesh inside turned a reddish colour, signs of being very agitated. The nostrils flared, sniffling more and more. Wrinkles inside and outside the snout were appearing. The snout began to scrunch at the end, trying its best to resist.

Meanwhile, the cause of this entire thing, a single, tiny, beetle, continued to scuttle around the long nasal passage, tickling everywhere. She heard the aardvark’s breath hitch, and was motivated even further to make him sneeze. Poke! Scratch! Rub! Even bite the poor flesh! She had gotten this far and she wasn’t going to stop. The walls were full of vibrations and slight wrinkles, the snout’s insides getting more moist than she previously felt. “Itchy, itchy, itchy,” the ladybug grinned, rubbing her dull brown back against an irritated nostril rim. “Itchie itchie, citchi citchi, you better get a sneezie~”

The poor aardvark was suffering very much. He settled down under a tree, unable to continue any farther. The itch in his snout had grown so severe it stopped him from sniffing up any kind of scent. “Hhh… ah… ah…” He sniffled, his snout scrunching up more. If you looked carefully enough, you could see the snout arching a little. It obviously shows how itchy his snout must be. In fact, he had been resisting this sneeze for over half an hour! “Hrah… ah… ha…”

The ladybug knew, from the clear signs of sneezing, what she must do next. She must make sure that this aardvark is going to reach ‘the climax’. “Prepare yourself for the ultimate tickle, o iron snout!” She joked.

She curled herself into a small ball, knowing that wherever the aardvark moves his snout, she would follow. The aardvark tilted his head downward slightly, so she too rolled forward. The unsteady surface of the thick flesh made her roll to the sides every now and then. “Hrnh!” The aardvark’s breath hitched, his snout jerking upwards. She then rolled backwards again, following the snout’s incline.

“Ah… haaa… m-make it stop!” The aardvark, who was afraid to sneeze just because he didn’t want to, shook his snout around in panic. However, this made the itch only grow more as the ladybug’s curled body got propelled here and there, bouncing all around. The ladybug, though getting dizzy, was happy that she was covering more ground than ever before. She also knew, that classic pre-sneeze action that most animals cannot prevent: raising their nose upwards.

The aardvark did so in just three minutes after the rolling, reflexively tilting his head upwards, feeling a sneeze about to explode out of his snout. “Haaah… haaah… haaa-!”

Inside, the ladybug prepared her ultimate attack. She let herself roll as deep as possible, then stopped before she entered the passage that would lead to the lungs. Giving a strike there will only cause respiratory issues, so she remained in area that still registered to the nose area. “Hehe, now, time to sneeze!” She cheered, giving her most vicious punches, scratches, bites, and rubs she ever did, using all her strength to do so.

The aardvark’s eyes shot open when he felt a massive itch at the base of his snout, which soon creeped up to the tip, creating an irresistible urge to sneeze. “Haaa…. HAAAA… HRAH…. HAAAATCHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!” The entire sneeze was like a rifle firing, a blast of air coming straight out of that long snout, dust blowing everywhere. Some snot fired out as well, proving just how irritated his snout was. The ladybug was instantly shot out like a cannon, hitting the ground at top speed.

The aardvark tried to breath, but there was still some residual tickle in his snout. “Ahah… haaa… haaaa… HYATCHEEEEEEEEEEWW!!!” He released another sneeze, blowing out the remaining mucous and dust stuck inside his snout. “Haaa… Haah… hah…” The aardvark sniffed a few times, feeling the tickle had finally left at last. He sniffed some more, but all he felt was the cool night air. “Phew… God, that was so annoying…” He said. Now that his snout was free from all problems, he trotted across the plains to look for his meal.

The ladybug was on the ground, busted pretty badly. Her back was ripped slightly, one of her antennae broke off, and she sprained three legs. She’s also got a serious headache. “Urh… That.. was… worth the trouble…” She stuttered, struggling to get up. “C-can’t wait to tell this to any others I meet…”


-The End-

Oohoohoo, that big bad stubborn Aardvark met somebody even more stubborn it seems! That valiant little lady bug absolutely dominated that nostril, bit by bit making the whole thing irritated and sensitive. That guy had no chance of resisting the urges~ CX

I loved this!  Thought it was very well written, especially considering it is your first effort. Love how much detail was put into the slow, almost torturous build!

Also, just on a side note: The aardvark is a very underrated choice; they have such lovely snoots <3

Having a slight male preference, I'm always super happy to see new male content. There's not enough in my opinion.

Anyways, wonderful work! I would love to read more from you!

Thank you so much for the nice comment! I'm sure you were quite fond of it, being someone who like tiny things in noses X3

Thank you so much! I've had experience writing one or two other sneeze stories, although they weren't too good like this one.

And yes, the aardvark is sooooo underrated. It needs more love! Their snouts are long, rigid, and begging for tickles~

I'm also planning writing another story, featuring an elephant (female), so stay tuned!
