Close Call

"Why's Xander so quiet?" Sholeh whispered to Faith, as Giles discussed the latest missions at the weekly meeting.

"You didn't hear about his training mission this week." Sholeh frowned. Xander's report had been brief, but nothing had seemed out of the ordinary. She shook her head and Faith continued. "While his girls were dealing with one demon, a second took Xander hostage and threatened to castrate him. Fortunately, he had two girls in reserve who handled the situation."

"Scary." Sholeh shuddered at what could have been a nasty situation. "I can't see Xander as a castrati."

Faith grinned. "I can."

Stipulation

"I did tell you not to barter with the locals." The Doctor stretched out on a pallet.

Rose was curled up on the other end of the cell's single pallet, her arms around her knees. "Don't look a me. I didn't do anything."

"I get that these guys are big on the proper protocols surrounding trade." Jack paced around their tiny cell. "But I didn't expect it to be such a life and death business."

"You'd think they used Ferengi as role models," Rose mused.

"Does that mean I need to fondle their ears to get us out of here?"
