It was a bear. A large bear. A very large bear. Roaring in her face as though she’d offended its mother. Roaring with a mouth full of hacker-nomming teeth. It reared up on its hind legs, towering over her, and she feel onto her rear, eyes still glued to the monster.
Am I supposed to curl up in a ball? Or not move? Can they smell-
‘Misha, you silly thing,’ Grigori said, neatly stepping over her to smack the bear on the nose like a naughty pet. ‘Sorry, I didn’t think I’d left her out,’ he said as he lifted the bear, cradling her like a baby.
‘Are you sure he’s the one?’
Stef looked across at Jones. ‘Yeah,’ she said with a nod. ‘I mean, there’s no one else.’
‘I’m still not sure-’
She spun on the swivel chair. ‘Come on, please? It’s just one more teeny favour in the huge favour Katamari that I owe you already, and this will makes things a lot easier for me.’
‘There are several better possibilities...’
She shook her head. ‘No, it’s got to be him. If I’ve got to go through this, then so does he. I mean, he’s like my only friend.’
‘And I suppose you’re making this decision for him?’
For 15 Points, I will write you a MV story.
Ok, the other day, we had 207 guests on the site – this was pretty awesome, unfortunately, the majority of them were spambots/robots/whatnot, not actual people joining in on the fun. Having 207 (real) guests on a regular basis would be sort of awesome, so to that end, it’s time we started doing a little advertising, and not just me buying Project Wonderful ads.
Stef stepped of the elevator and onto the tech floor – the surprisingly quiet tech floor, there were no recruits milling about in front of the lift, nor half-in-half-out of their dorm rooms.
She headed for the games room – as it seemed to be the most likely place for a raid to take place, and she wasn’t disappointed – she pushed the doors open, and found twenty recruits sitting at desks with Jones, another half dozen or so sitting on couches, and four sitting around a table, eating solid food, discussing the game.
