Homer just sighed, looking at Tdawg, and sets down the tongs.
"Look Dawg, just let him hug you and get it over with. It aint gonna kill you, I promise,"
TDawg glared at Homer. "No way, no chance no how. Hand shake, high five, even maybe a chest bump. THATS IT!"
Homer picked up the tongs and flipped over the rack of ribs he was grilling then slathered them in his homemade sauce. The hot coals sizzled as it
dripped from the meat, giving the air a sweet yet smoky taste to it. He then closed the grill cover and took off his apron an set it on the table next
to the grill.
"Okay, okay, I see this is a major stressor for you. I'll drop it. Come on, I gotta head back up to the house for another drink. Cant find Zack to
go get me one, he's probably riding Whimsey again,"
TDawg looked at Homer suspiciously. "No way, youre up to something bro, I can FEEL IT. Youre not the type to drop something,"
Homer sighed, pulled out a cigarette from his pack, flipped his zippo open and lit up. He then took a long drag then let out a stream of blue grey
"Dawg, I just dont wanna hear about it anymore. SOMEHOW, my math homework appeared on my dresser when I woke up this morning and I HAVE to finish it
before sunday night. I somehow keep getting the night shift for guard duty, gotta finish cooking for the party, and on top of all that, I'm having to
deal with everyone breaking out in dance at the drop of a hat. Do I SOUND like I have time to pull something?"
TDawg looked at Homer and saw the look of frustration in his eyes. He looked away, and sighed, slumping his shoulders, relaxing slightly.
"No, you're right. I dont think you'd do anything like that. I'm sorry bro," and held out his hand to Homer, who grasped it firmly and released
Homer grinned and turned toward the house, clapping TDawg lightly on the shoulder. "Dont worry about it bro, lets go get a drink and finish up
cooking. Feels like I've been cooking forever, and I want a shower before things kick off,"
Together TDawg and Homer walked up the path to the house, talking about their days in the Army, where they both proudly served for their country. They
walked around to the back of the house, where the kitchen was located. Homer stepped up ahd grabbed open the door, and pulled it open and gestured for
TDawg to enter first.
As TDawg walked into the kitchen, he noticed everyone that was there were in the kitchen. Geordi, Jacy, Night, Angel, Cody, Rodimus, Tsu, Syx,
Serdigam, all of them. TrueBrit stood on front of them, all had a huge grin on their faces.
"Come come Rainbow Warrior," Tru said, holding out his arms. "Youre going to get your hug, whether or not you like it. Everyone, NOW!"
TDawg stood there for a moment, completely stunned, then started backing out of the kitchen in a panic. His efforts were blocked by Homer, who stood
in the doorway. TDawg spun around, and Homer had a huge smile on his face.
"Sorry bro, youre not getting away from it this time, and this is what you get for getting me on night guard duty every night!!" Homer said as he
PUSHED TDawg into the room, into the waiting arms of his friends. Homer then slammed the door shut and leaned on it to keep TDawg from escaping. Homer
felt the door shake and the doorknob turn and rsttle furiously.
"HOMER! LET ME OUT! WAIT TIL I GET A HOLD OF YOU!! HOMERRRRRRRRR!!!!"
Homer laughed as the door stopped rattling and heard a unearthly screech come from TDawg. He then pulled another cigarette out and lit it up and
puffed away, as the rattling started again and got fainter by the second.
Fossilera walked around to the back of the house, his curiosity attracting him to the howls coming from the kitchen.
"Homer, whats going on?" he asked.
Homer flicked an ash. "Not much Fossil, just Dawg getting what he needs and deserves."
Fossil thought about it for a moment, then remembered. "Oh the group hug thing?"
Homer nodded. "Yes, hes going to get one whether he likes it or not."
"Is it painful? Those screams..." Fossil asked.
"Nope, doesnt hurt a bit," Homer replied.
"Why is he screaming like that then?"
"Probably he knows hes caught and trying to get out of it,"
Fossil shook his head as he looked at the door then turned and walked back down the path toward the reflective garden.
"You humans are very strange...."
