Don't own it…. Wish I did… Buuuut I don'tz….

Ok. This is the last chapter for odd jobs. Though, I did truly enjoy writing for this series. I figured I'd stop because, well, the outcome of each chapter was the same. 'Rath, losing his job.' I didn't want to beat a dead horse, as the saying goes. SO! I want to thank ALL who faved and left a review! This chapter may be kind of short. Cuz, I just do these things off the top of my head. Lets move on, shall we!

"IT IS WHAT IT IS"

It was a beautiful day. Not a cloud in the sky. The sun was shinning bright, and not an alien in sight.

Well, except for our pal… Rath. Who was taking a bath...

Sorry, just couldn't help myself. I was on a rhyming streak...

Moving on...

Sitting at a table at Mr. Smoothy's, and feeling utterly sorry for himself, was our dimwitted hero. Staring once again at his favorite frozen treat. With- a splash of ginger, I might add.

It- was yummo. But it would taste much better to the feline, if he wasn't in such a fowl mood, and if he hadn't spent his last dime on the darn drink…

So he was sulking, and growling, and mumbling to himself. The tiger just couldn't win.

And…

He blamed it all on Kevin.

So when he saw the signature green challenger pull up into the parking lot, the tiger just glared and growled at it. Like it was supposed to accomplish something. The large alien watched the couple head towards where he was sitting, just glaring at the boy, and taking notice of Kevin's wide grin that slapped across his face..

Rath- just wanted to deck em.

"Hey, Tennyson."

Rath growls.

"WHAT DO YOU WANT!"

Gwen slowly walks up to her cousin, and gives him a hug. After all, she did feel bad for the poor guy.

"Ben. I'm sorry you didn't have any luck keeping a job. But, do you have to take it out on Kevin?"

The tiger glares at the girl.

"YEAH! I DO! IT'S ALL LEVIN'S FAULT IN THE FIRST PLACE!"

Kevin's grin quickly faded. Come on. It wasn't all his fault. The tiger was just too hot headed and stupid, to keep such jobs.

At least in his opinion.

"How do you figure it was my fault!"

"CUZ IT IS! FIRST- YOU MADE RATH THROW A REGISTER THINGY AT YOUR HEAD! THEN WHEN RATH CALLED YOU? YOU MADE ME THROW A WHOLE TELEPHONE AT SOME GUYS HEAD! WHICH WAS TOTALLY HUGE BY THE WAY! SO IT WASN'T HARD TO MISS! BUT YEAH! RATH WOULD SAY IT'S ALL YOUR FAULT LEVIN!

The older teen lowers a brow. He wasn't going to just stand there and receive the finger of blame. Regardless if he had helped with Rath's bad luck on holding a job.

"Ever think that maybe your stupidity, and your short temper got you fired, Tennyson!"

The tiger quickly gets up from the table. Fists in the ready to slug the boy. Rath was growling fiercely.

"LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHIN KEVIN E. LEVIN! RATH-IS NOT- STUPID! YOU'RE THE ONE WHO'S STUPID! AND WHAT'S WRONG WITH RATH'S TEMPER! RATH'S TEMPER IS JUST FINE!" The tiger glares heatedly at the boy. "DOESN'T MATTER! PREPARE TO GET POUNDED!"

Gwen swiftly steps in between the two hot heads. Ready to take them both down, they needed to just relax, and act like adults. Even though, neither of them had what it took to be one.

"Ok, enough! Both of you stop acting like children!"

Kevin was about to retort on her last comment. But the girl cut him down quite quickly.

"And Kevin? Don't even."

The older teen just chuckles, and Rath, well, he still wanted to beat the raven haired punks face in.

Gwen sighs.

"Now, I'm going to go get something to drink. Can I trust you to not kill each other while I'm gone?"

The boys just nod their heads in agreement.

"Good. I'll be right back."

Kevin and Rath watched Gwen walk away. Silence filling the air. The raven haired boy sighs, and finally breaks the quiet.

"So…"

Rath glares at the boy.

"SO… WHAT?"

The boy folds his arms, and grins.

"Well. I did get you somethin. But your being a butthead. So… I'm thinkin I changed my mind."

The tiger was a little confused, and a bit shocked. Since when did Kevin Levin ever get him anything? Like, ever?

"WHATS THE CATCH, LEVIN!"

"No catch." He notices Rath's skeptic expression, and holds his hands up in defense. "I swear. Totally legit."

Still, Rath was a bit skeptical.

"WELL. WHAT IS IT!"

Kevin chuckles a bit, and puts his hand into his pocket, and pulls out a lottery ticket, and hands it to the feline.

"Here. I got this when I stopped at the gas station around the corner. Figured you could try and see if you could win anything." He shrugs. "Worth a shot, right?"

Rath grins and takes the ticket. Wow. This was a day to mark on the calendar. Kevin E. Levin, actually being nice?

Did hell freeze over?

"UH… THANKS!"

"Sure. No problem, man. So.. You gonna scratch the ticket, or what?"

Still smiling at the teens nice gesture, the tiger takes his sharp claw and begins to scratch the ticket.

He scratches the first box.

Then he scratches the second. Raths eyes begin to widen.

Then the last box, Rath just couldn't believe his eyes.

"NO- WAY! RATH TOTALLY FREAKEN WON!"

Kevin grins. But keeps his excitement at bay. As if he was trying to keep a straight face…

Weird…

"So, Tennyson. How much?"

"RATH WON A MILLION BUCKS! DO- DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY FREAKEN SMOOTHIES I COULD GET WITH THAT!"

Rath at first seemed to be hyperventilating on the thought of how many smoothies he could by with such a wad of cash, but that subsides, and he begins to jump up and down from pure bliss. Running around screaming, hoot'n and hollering. Just being a totally happy, and over joyed moron.

The tiger continues to run like an idiot down the street. Heading towards the gas station around the corner.

Kevin begins to laugh to himself.

"What's so funny?"

Realizing that Gwen had returned with her drink, he turns to the girl.

"Oh, I was just laughin because your cousin?" He chuckles. "Is a complete moron."

Gwen sighs. "Ok. I'll bite. What did you do to him this time."

The boy laughs a bit harder under his breath.

"I gave him a lottery ticket."

"Uh-huh."

"And he won."

"He did! Well, how much did he win?"

Kevin shurgs as if this was no big deal. "One million."

Gwen's eyes widen in surprise. "No he-"

Kevin grins deviously at the red head.

"Don't get too excited there, Gwen. That ticket I gave him?'

"Yeaaaah…"

"Well… It was fake. Not real."

Suddenly Kevin's eyes widen, and his grin falls as quickly as it came.

"I wonder what he'll do when he finds this out though."

Gwen could only shake her head at the boy. She knew what Rath would do.

And when that time comes, Kevin Levin, will get what he so deserves. Fist to the face, and all…

There you have it! It went a lot longer than I planned it! Lol! Please review!

Laughs to the people,

The Spoon.
