"Hey Murdock wait up."
Murdock stop and waited for Face. Suddenly he heard the sound of a puppy whinning. He turn to Face.
"Face did you heard that? It sounds like Lucky Strikes"
Face stared .He had heard it but that was impossible .
"Murdock wait a minute."
But he was too late Murdock was arguing with a man in another booth who was selling real puppies Cocker Spanials.
"Sir began Murdock I think you have one of my puppies. I am sure it was an honest mistake."Murdock smiled at the man.
The man look confused. "One of your puppies? These puppies are mind. They are prebreed Cocker Spaniels."
Murdock shook his head. "Not those the one in the box with them .You must have thought he was yours.The white one with the black ring around his eyes and black tip tail ."
The man stared all his puppies were tan color cocker Spaniels.
"You are nuts now get out before I call the flea market manger."
Murdock start foward "I just want my puppy."
The man grab Murdock and pull him away from the box .
"If you want one of the puppies .That will be $200."
Face decided he better help Murdock,before things got out of hand. He walk over to the man and Murdock and gave the man his best Faceman smiled.
"Sir I think I can explain all this."
But before Face could the man turned around and sock Face right in the eye . Face was now beyond the point of no return .This morning had been terrible ..First they were helping Murdock give away invisible puppies,then Hannibal took a young lady right from under his nose and now this man had hit him in the eye. He had enough and hit the man right back knocking him down .The man look daze but not hurt. Face turn to Murdock .
"Did you get Lucky Strikes?"
Murdock with a huge smiled on his face nodded his head. The man looked. The guy in the baseball cap and brown leather jacket had nothing in his hands. He stared. Face smiled down at the man .
"Next time let him have his puppy."
The man just nodded his head. Face and Mutrdock walk away .Murdock seem to be stugling .
"Here Face take Lucky Strikes I can't carry them both." . He handed Lucky Strikes to Face.
'You know Face you save Lucky Strikes and I don't think he will go to anyone else.I think you should keep him."
"Murdock I don't have time to care for a puppy."
Murdock smiled at Face "It not that hard Face."
"I don't know I mean how big will he get?"
Murdock again smiled "He will get as big or as small as you want. When I am happy and not scared Billy is small enough to hold. But when I am scared and having nightmares Billy is huge and can chase the nightmares away."
Face smiled at Murdock "Okay Murdock I'll keep Lucky Strikes .I wonder what BA will say about two dogs in his van."
Murdock smiled "He 'll get used to it. Come on let's take care of that black eye of yours.You know Face you look just like Lucky Strikes now."
Face smiled and the two men walk away with the puppies.
