Ozzie & Stella.

(Note: this is in an alternate reality, where Stella never met Tiger.)

Ozzie and the others sat in front of the TV, watching William Shatner's Full Moon Fright Night.

He stared at Stella, wondering if she felt the same way towards him as he did for her.

I've always liked her, even when I was married, he thought.

Ozzie decided it was time to ask her out, but wondered how...

Two days later, everyone had just finished looting a house.

They rolled the wagon back to the hedge, and Ozzie walked over to the pond.

He sat down, and tossed a rock across the water.

RJ sat down next to him.

"Ozzie, are you okay?"

"Not really, RJ."

"What's up?"

"Do you think Stella would be interested in me?"

"I honestly have no idea."

"Oh, RJ, its horrible. I really care about her, and its been driving me nuts."

Hammy's ears perked up.

"Did somebody say nuts?"

RJ looked at him, and pointed to the west.

"There are nuts over there, Hammy.

Hammy raced off in that direction.

"Ozzie, if you want to, just ask her."

"I don't know. What if I ruin our friendship?"

"Ozzie, if she won't let you care about her and still be her friend, then she wasn't a very good friend to begin with."

"You're right, RJ. Thanks."

"No prob."
