Wager

WagerSpike and Dawn were sitting on a workbench making bets on how the tempestuous relationship between their assistants panned out.

Dawn's money was on Michael driving Ceallach insane with scifi theory. Spike, on the other hand, reckoned on Ceallach carrying out her threat to remove Michael's eyes with a blunt instrument.

"So who's getting the exciting job of training her?"

Spike shrugged. "Wolf said he's short, hairy and has a bad temperament."

Wolf deftly removed a cudgel from Ceallach's hand as she walked by the bickering assistants and set it back on its shelf.

Dawn grinned. "I wish him luck."

Ah, Logan. The poor man has no idea what he's in for. Hope his mutant healing factor can keep with the wild kitty. :D

Love the byplay in the background. It's like watching a tennis match -- or a train wreck, I haven't quite decided yet. *eg*

I thought pheral would like to know where she's going. I do hope no one's standing between her and the airport.

There's a lot of room for movement between a tennis match and a train wreck. I'd suggest watching from a safe distance.

Interesting.

I think I need to read back over the Wolf&Declan!verse so I know what's going on!

Love the bickering in the background! Especially Wolf's calm removal of the cudgel!

Camilla and Michael have only appeared in this verse. The earliest stories in the Wolf&Declán!verse are on my site at Fiction of the Wolf.

Logan, right?

Hmm. Is it physically possible to remove eyes with a cudgel? Other than smashing the whole head open, which would rather defeat the ickiness and pain of removed eyes, since then the victim would be dead.

It is indeed Logan.

Camilla was going to use a rusty sppon for eye removal, but the cudgel was nearer to hand and Camilla is nothing if not adaptable.

I suppose if she'd beaten Michael to death, Spike would have lost the bet regardless. I don't know if eye removal as trophies after death would have counted.
