Summary:  Just a short ficlet about Oz and his cousin Jordy.  Starts off with the gym scene from 'Phases'.  Enjoy!

He Bit Me!

After the coach had called the groups for the self-defense lesson, the class stood up from the bleachers and assembled on the mats.  Larry walked over and took his jacket off revealing his bandaged arm.

"What happened?" Xander asked, seeing his arm.

"Oh, last week some huge dog jumped out of the bushes and bit me.  Thirty-nine stitches. They oughta shoot those strays." Larry told him, holding up his arm.

Oz walked over and stood next to Larry.

"I've been there, man." Oz said, holding up his finger.  "My cousin Jordy just got his grownup teeth in.  Does not like to be tickled."


"Hey Aunt Maureen." Oz greeted, walking into the house, and shutting the door behind him.

"Hello Daniel." Maureen said, leading him into the living room.

Oz chuckled at the use of his real name, a habit his aunt could not get rid of.

Maureen started to gather her things, and put her coat on.

"Now, Daniel, you know where everything is.  There's some spaghetti in the fridge for Jordy, there should be enough for you too, and make sure he's in the bed by nine.  It's a school night and all."

"Yes, Aunt Maureen.  Where is Jordy?" Oz asked.

"He's upstairs in his room.  He's finished his homework, so he can play.  Have a good time, and I should be home by ten at the latest."

"See ya." Oz said, closing the door after Maureen left.

He headed upstairs where he found Jordy playing in his room.

"Hey little man." Oz said, sitting down next to him.

"Hey Oz.  Wanna play game with me?" Jordy asked, handing Oz a controller.

They played for a while, finally stopping two hours later.

"Well, little man, what d'you wanna do now?" Oz asked.

Jordy shrugged, and Oz sighed.

"Hey, I have an idea." Oz said, suddenly.

"What?" Jordy asked.

"Tickle fight." Oz said, grabbing Jordy and tickling his sides.  The boy thrashed and giggled, and soon he was yelling.

"You gotta say uncle!" Oz said.

Oz was about to let go of him anyway, until Jordy grabbed his finger and bit it.  Oz yelped, and let go of Jordy, who ran out of the room yelling, "I win!  I win!"

Oz sat there for a moment, stunned, looking at his finger, which was bleeding slightly.

"Huh.  He bit me!"


Xander laughed at Oz's slight misfortune.  Larry shook his head and walked over to terrorize Theresa.  Oz looked at his finger again, and sighed, and joined Willow on the mat.
