It was a quiet night in Las Vegas you could hear a pin drop but for Criss it wasn't that kind of night. He had been haunted by Dini's death so bad that he kept dreaming about that night again and again to the point where Criss didn't even want to go to sleep. One night around four he was walking around the house when Criss looked outside and saw Romona sitting on her stoup with Oso walking around the front yard. Criss grabbed a jacket and went over to Romona. On her stoup Romona was sipping some tea as Criss walked over. "Christopher I thought you'd be asleep". "Got insomina what about you?". "Oso needed to go but he's looking for something so I brewed some tea and let him knock himself out. Want a cup?" she asked. "Why not it's a little chilly" he replied.
"Oso be a good boy I'll be right back" and they went in. They walked in and Criss saw how organized Romoma is from the alaphatized books to which bill to pay. It was to the point of OCD organization. "You are organized maybe I should hire you to organized my place"Criss stated as he sat down. "Part of my anxiety is a bit of OCD". "Every gone full blown OCD?". "Before I got Oso I couldn't leave the house with out flipping the lights on and off five times" she admitted. After the water boiled and Romona poured it Criss saw a picture on her desk. "Is this your mom?"he asked. "Yea she's in a mental hospital" she replied giving Criss his tea. "Why?"Criss asked. "She's schizophrenic Criss" she replied as they went back outside. "That had to be hard to live with a schizophrenic mother". "My doctor sayes most of my anxiety is from my mom and living with her for so long"Romona said. Criss couldn't believe how living with a mother that had this illness could cause this person so much anxiety in her life.
"What about you Criss this isn't the first time I've seen you awake at this time". "You read me better than my mother does. I've been having nightmares and I don't know how to get rid of it"Criss replied. "Why don't you talk to Sandra about it maybe she can help you find the cause of it" Romona suggested. "She knows why"Criss remarked cupping his tea in his hand. "Did something happened?". "Yea I lost a pet unexpectedly and I saw him die" Criss replied. "Oh I'm so sorry Criss that has to be hard to lose an animal I'd probably go insane if I lost Oso". "Speaking of him where is he?" looking around. Romona got up and called him. "Oso here boy" she called out. Criss heard a soft wimpering in the back of the house so they followed the noise to find Oso hiding under a bush with his front paws over his nose.
Taking two step near the dog Criss knew why and so did Romona. "Oh boy I think he found a skunk that didn't want to play"Criss remarked. "That's not all look on the ground porcupine quills" Romona stated picking up one. Criss took a deep breath and took a good look at Oso who indeed had porcupine quills embedded in his nose and paw. "You need to get Oso to a vet before he starts pulling those out himself"Criss replied. "His usually vet is on vacation untill tomorrow" trying not to gag.
