Catherine ***SIGH*** ***SIGH*** ***SIGH***
Nathan Fine. So you’re just being windy?
Catherine Shut up, Nathan.
Nathan Then WHAT?
Arinda I have a feeling it may have something to do with the Spring Festival, and you not showing up.
Catherine Hmmm, do you think?
Nathan I was indisposed.
Catherine You weren’t indisposed! You were disinclined!
Arinda Is there a difference?
Nathan I had a terrible headache! I even have a note from the Royal High Healer, but a fat lot of sympathy I get around here!
Catherine You had a headache because you AND Cullen went out with Simon and got plowed! It’s no wonder he “gave you a note”.
Nathan Where is he? I need to him to give me a note for this horrible growth I have.
Arinda What growth would that be? I don’t see any growth.
Nathan Near as I can tell, it’s a shrill, vindictive, bad-tempered, and just plain mean addle-pated harpy from hell who manifests itself as a thorn in my side. And it JUST KEEPS GETTING BIGGER!
Arinda There’s no need to be rude, Nathan. You scarpered off and you know it. Catherine has every right to be mad at you.
Cullen Oh look. There’s another one, Nathan. I’d have those removed if I were you.
Nathan You think? Please do!
Arinda You’re both rude, and I’m telling Cristov on you.
Cullen Oh really. Come here, Rinda. I have something to show you.
Arinda Hey! Cut that out! Jahx!!! I’m… telli…ng…
Jahx Um, what’d you do to my wife?
Cullen Nothing. She was tired, so she took a nap.
Nathan Got something to say about that, Jahx?
Jahx Nope. I didn’t see a thing.
Catherine You’re thugs. Nothing but bullies and thugs.
Nathan You’re looking a bit tired yourself, darling!
Catherine You come near me and I’ll show you what a real thorn in your side looks like!
