CacophonySpike was surprised to find the office empty. Well, almost empty. Andrew was sitting at Rachel's desk nursing a black eye.

"Where is everyone? What happened to you? And why does it sound like someone is strangling cats in the kitchen?"

Andrew moaned theatrically. "The Retjulls haven't forgiven me. Dawn is sweeping up the broken coffee cup and Rachel is singing to the demons to calm them."

"Ah." Spike shuddered, remembering the incident with the Vrykolp demon. It had taken some fast-talking to keep her as a client. "Lovely girl, but I fear for the eardrums of Rachel's future children."

Well, you said dogs only picked up howling as a learned behavior... evidently, Levi learned to sing from Rachel.

Or possibly the other way around. ;P

Well, the Retjulls like her singing. Andrew should be happy about that, if she wasn't placating them, he could have a matching set of black eyes.

Wow, that was great! I love your characterization of Andrew, and reading about his black eye and Rachel's singing had me laughing. Wonderful job!

Many thanks! I enjoy prodding this lot about. I don't think Andrew is too pleased with my prodding at the moment, I may have to ease up on the poor guy.

Well done. Poor Spike with his enhanced vampire hearing ...

Looks like there is a downside to enhanced hearing. Bummer!

This !verse does make for some lovely humor, doesn't it? *giggles quietly*

It does tend to lean to the silly.
