Roy didn't mind the puppy, he really didn't. He thought it was good for Jason to have it, be a little human for a change. He just couldn't understand why Jason would name the dog Batty.

"Really?" He asked when he found out.

"Shut up, it's my dog!" The man snapped. He then went back to rubbing the puppies belly, listening to it yap and run around, chasing it's tail.

Jason love it, it was probably the best Christmas present he had ever gotten. The puppy would follow him around everywhere, biting at his heels when it wanted something. Batty would even jump up into his bed with him, sleeping right next to his head, and licking his face when it was time to get up.

Jason had already started teaching it to fetch, it was a fast learner, it just couldn't get it's little mouth around that ball!

Jason looked around to make sure no one was looking, and then got down on the floor with the dog, picking him up and putting him on top of his chest, talking to him in baby talk. "Who's a good boy? Batty is! You're the cutest puppy in the whole world, yes you are!"

Batty got excited, licking at his face, his nose and mouth. Jason giggled like a little boy, he sure felt like one. Playing with his little dog on a Monday afternoon, that was something young boys did, as in ten year old boys. Jason didn't care, he hadn't felt this happy in a long time.

Batty scratched at his shirt, getting a little to excited, and bit Jason's had with those puppy teeth.

"You're a naughty little puppy! Trying to hurt poor ole Jason!" Jason babbled playfully as he nuzzled his face into the puppy's neck. The puppy responded by yapping happily and nipping at Jason's nose, wanting to play.

Batty licked Jason's face mercilessly, quickly proving that he had Jason wrapped around his little paw. Jason giggled more, giddy as a school girl.

"Uh… Jason?" Asked Roy, staring from the door with his eyes wide.

"What?" Jason asked irritated.

"Jason, I think you need help." Roy said honestly. "I know a really good therapist, and I think you need a session or two…. hundred."

"GET OUT!" Jason yelled, throwing a knife at Roy's head. Roy ran out of the room, swearing bloody murder.
