Hal Jordan, the main Green Lantern of Earth, floated through the corridors of the Justice League watchtower. He arrived early, for once, for a meeting of the Justice League and so far he was the only one to arrive. Suddenly, he heard laughing from a room off the hallway he was in. He recognized it as the laughter of Sam Kane, brother to the Justice League's civilian liaison. Hal shrugged it off as Sam playing with his dog, Barkley, while his brother was doing some work. But as he floated by, he heard a snuffling sigh, followed by the shake of a collar.

Hal looked down.

Barkley was tied to a handrail with a look of absolute despair on his shaggy face. The poor thing was lying on the ground, one of his paws was bandaged, and a cone of shame was around his neck. Hal was confused. He looked into the next room, and was surprised to see Sam playing on the ground with a fox which had gold fur. Even stranger, it had six tails.

"Tori, stop that!" Sam giggled. Hal's jaw dropped...was this fox his teammate?

Sam grabbed a tennis ball and threw it. Tori jumped in the air and grabbed it. He trotted over to Sam who petted him on the head.

"What the hell is going on?" blurted Hal.

Tori resumed his human form, and spat out the tennis ball. "Hello, Jordan."

"Tori, you're"

"He's a kitsune!" said Sam. "You know, like Naruto, but with six tails and nice!"

Hal turned to Tori. "Why didn't you tell us?"

"Oh, certain members already know."

"And they aren't telling the rest of us because....?"

"Because I don't think all of you need to know that I become a ball of fluff when I want to relax."

"So...why are you acting like a terrier with Sam?"

"Barkley had surgery to help with a leg injury when he and Sam fell down a sinkhole at Wayne Manor. So with him on the DL, I'm being Sam's dog. Besides," Tori changed back into Fox form, "he gives great belly rubs!" He transformed back.


"So, will you keep my secret?"


"Thanks, and Jordan?"


"Tell anyone about me being Sam's puppy for a day, and I'll show you  my more mischievous side..."

Hal left shaking his head as Sam continued playing Fetch with Tori. He and Barkley shared a mutual sigh as Hal floated down to the conference room.
