What, was "Rudy" on cable last night?

. . . Yes.

75 Godiva Street, Tuesday afternoon
Not having an even remotely puppy proof house, Eliot had decided to take the puppy that invaded Luke's yesterday to the shelter the night before. He'd paid for a vet check up once they'd confirmed she hadn't been chipped, made sure she was settled in, told the shelter people to find her a good home (which was pretty superfluous, but they were very nice about it) and moved on with his life.

He'd been reasonably sure the matter was settled. Until he came home from class to find the puppy sitting on his front stoop, looking entirely too pleased with herself.

Eliot stared at her for a long moment, then stepped over her and opened his door. "When I come back out," he told her, "you're going back to the shelter."

He closed the door on her sad little puppy face with a sigh, then turned to go look for something that would serve as a leash.

And tripped over the puppy, sitting happily on his front hall rug.

There was more staring. The puppy yipped happily.

"You're not stayin' here," Eliot insisted. He picked her up, put her back outside, and watched her sit there, head tilted, as he closed the door. He checked through the window to double check that she was still sitting on the porch, then turned around.

She was on the rug.

"If I hadn't seen the two of you together yesterday, I'd swear you were Parker," Eliot said. He looked out the window again to make sure there wasn't two of them. His stoop was empty. "Alright, fine. You can stay one night. Then we're findin' you a more appropriate home. One that ain't filled with knives and swords and things. Got it?"

The puppy wagged her tail, then hopped up, trotted into the living room, and proceeded to make herself comfortable on Eliot's nice leather chair.

He was doomed.
