10 minuets later
Fry, closely followed by Seymour, homed in on panucci’s pizza, Seymour felt his legs would fall off and roll onto the road before they could make it. But if he lost him now it would be quite hard to find him in between his deliveries. So he pushed on.
As they came to the last 15 meters the cracks in the path turned from the small forgivable type to full blown crevasses. Fry stood up on his pedals to soften the impacts of the bumps on his butt. But for Seymour the impacts where felt fully. Twice he got his paws caught in the larger cracks. Sharp yelps often followed these incidences but where not heard by fry because it was drowned out by his rendition of walking on sunshine. The last 5 meters where much better and fry sat down before it was time to stop and lean his bike up against the wall near the door.
Seymour lagged behind by 3 meters and flopped over on the part of concrete that exposed a small patch of dirt. He heaved a breath and relaxed. A life of eating pizza scraps and all sorts of junk really takes it out of a guy. He lay there for several seconds as fry entered panucci’s. He would have to wait for fry’s next delivery to be noticed by him. All sorts of thoughts of rejection whizzed through his mind. But before he could get into one of these thoughts, fry walked out through the door and reached for his bike holding a large stack of pizzas.
Seymour lept up and ripped over to fry as he was placing the pizzas on the rack on his bike. He lept up his legs and startled fry so much he dropped the last pizza and splattered it on the sidwalk. Most dogs would be all over it like a fly on a pile of poo, but Seymour was so engrossed in fry that nothing else mattered around him. Fry’s shocked expression turned to happiness like water to wine. He rubbed Seymour behind the ears and scraped the pizza of the crumbling sidewalk back into the pizza box.
‘Eh!, What they don’t know can’t hurt em, right? He questioned Seymour.
He picked some bubblegum off the pizza and put the pizza with the rest of them.
‘Wanna come with me on my delivery’
Seymour gave him a doggy groan, the same ones they give to kids after they just ran around with them for 2 hours. And the kids say they want more
‘I guess not’.
He climbed onto the bike and stared at the dog for a few seconds before riding away.
Seymour retreated to the patch of dirt and slowly pin wheeled in to a lazy slumber.
Around an hour later Seymour was rudely awakened by the sound of the bell on a low, low quality bike. He instantly greeted Fry with a wet sloppy kiss on his shoes.
The drool had leaked into his shoe and was being absorbed by his sock. Fry yanked off his shoe and whipped off his sock chucking it in Seymour’s general direction. Seymour started ripping into the sock and when he was finished strolled up to Fry and started sucking his toes. The dog had obviously interpreted this as a gift of some sort and it had only increased his loving for Fry.
‘if you like me anymore you’ll start humping my leg’
Fry opened the door to the pizzeria and walked behind the counter where he was stopped by Mr. Panucci’s.
‘Hey it’s unhygienic to bring dogs near the kitchens’ Mr. Panucci pointed out.
‘Since when do you care about being hygienic’ Fry said as he pointed the sweat stains and donut crumbs on Mr. Panucci’s singlet.Mr.Panucci quickly switched his attention to the adorable dog sitting in front of him with its paw held up for a shake. Mr. Panucci knelt down and shook the dogs hand and Seymour started to lick his face.
‘What’s his name?’ Mr. Panucci asked, still focused on the dog’s eyes.
‘What an adorable name!’ the usually gruff man was melting in the paws of Seymour, and Seymour liked it.
Seymour made himself at home in a pile of rags next to an out of order pizza oven.
Before long everyone was doing there own thing, Mr. Panucci was making some plain cheese pizzas, Fry was playing the arcade game and Seymour was hovering up the crumbs , which where just about everywhere.
Eventually Seymour dozed off listening to the tune of walking on sunshine being hummed in his ears by Fry who was on his way out...
