|The Mage Sister||
It has been very stormy over the Midwest the last two nights in a row, and it looks to be gearing up to go again tonight. I hope not – I need some sleep!!! I’m feeling a little ornery, so I think I might mosey on over to The Keep and poke Nathan a little about throwing tantrums and making it storm.
Jahx Um, please don’t.
Aw, c’mon! It’s fun! A girl’s gotta take advantage of entertainment where she can find it.
Cullen It may be fun for you, but it’s distinctly NOT fun for us. Go away now. Shoo!
Hey! This is MY blog. YOU shoo!
Cullen Well, if you don’t have anything better to do than pester people with it, I’d say you don’t deserve one.
Jahx I’d agree. I bet Cristov could give her a list of more productive things to do.
All right now, just stop it right there. Besides, you lot tease Nathan an awful lot about the weather, anyway. What’s the difference?
Jahx Well, it makes a great difference to us when he gets annoyed and rains rocks down on our heads and not yours.
Nathan I have never rained rocks down on anyone’s head!
Cullen Oh, I beg to differ! What about that time…
Nathan That was on purpose – not in a fit of temper!
Cullen You told Cristov that you lost your temper.
Nathan I lied.
Cullen I’m telling!
Nathan Are you five?
Cullen No! And I’m still telling.
Nathan Go ahead.
Cullen Ow! Hey! What was that? Gravel?!?!
Nathan Nonsense. Clearly it’s hail. You heard her – it’s stormy.
Cullen Oh, you wanna take me on? Really?
Nathan Yeah! I’ll give it a go! C’mon, ya big girl!
Now boys! Settle down! Good grief, I wasn’t feeling that ornery!
Cullen Eat vine, Nathan!
Nathan PUT ME DOWN, CULLEN!!!
Cullen What’s the matter, Nathan? Nothing better to do than hang around?
Jahx Knock it off, you two!
Nathan You $%^& ^ &%$%^ dafnit!!! Guess what?!?!
Cullen OW! Hey!
Nathan OW!!!! You dropped me!
Cullen You broke my head!
Nathan I did not break your head, you big baby!
Could you boys move this to The Keep? I don’t think… oh my! Stop that now! STOP IT!!! You’re gonna break something!!!
Cristov WHAT IN THE NAME OF FIARYN DO YOU TWO THINK YOU’RE DOING!!!
Nathan Aw, man! Cris, stop it!!! My ears are all plugged now.
Cristov What’s going on here? Two grown mages – acting like children! I expect this from the noviates but YOU TWO!?! I ought to shear you both!
Cullen Thanks a lot, Jahx.
Nathan Yeah, thanks. Friend.
Cristov You leave Jahx alone. Had you not been acting like delinquents, he wouldn’t have had to get me, and by the looks of things, I got here just in time.
Nathan It was the Mage Sister’s fault! She was…
Cristov That’s enough! I don’t want to hear it. I’ll see you two in Council Chambers in ten minutes. Bring your toothbrush.
Cullen I’d sleep with one eye open if I were you, Jahx.
Cullen I’m coming!
Wow. The storm tonight is bound to look pretty tame compared to those hotheads. Goodness.
Jahx I did warn you.
No one likes a goody-goody, Jahx!
Jahx I’m just saying…
