"Come  on Murdock I am sure Lucky Strikes is here let's just look again."

Face got no  answer Murdock  had left the  booth and was now looking for the puppy. Face sighed *Why can't I have a normal life  like everyone  else.*

"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.
