Aaaannnnnd.... Here we are again. ^___^ Wasn't sure I could do this today; my internet connection is being pouty. I dunno, maybe it's the heat. Although, we're only supposed to be 96 today. That's not bad, right? ^___O There's even a 1% chance of rain! And it's Friday!

So anyway, here you go. ^___^






BFB – Part 104 – Freaky


As Duo suggested, Ctik moved to the porch of the old house and introduced himself to Farq.

“I do hope you don't mind that I came with Duo. Everyone seems loathe to let him out of their sight.”

The demon gave a watery smile. “Oh no. Whatever Lord Banshee wants is fine with me. He's been very patient and extraordinarily generous with me. Do you work in the MIO?”

“No, Duo's been assisting me in finding a place to live. My previous arrangement was sold out from under me, unfortunately.” The two chatted politely for a short while, watching idly as the combatants combatted. Ovalia had backed off, ceding the point to Duo, though she still paced back and forth, rumbling deep in her chest.

“I wish she'd just go away,” muttered Farq. “She doesn't like me, she doesn't like this job, she doesn't like my house and she makes me stay in my demon form, even where people could see me. Even after Lord Banshee said I was to stay in my human form.” He sighed. “She doesn't like me mentioning him, either.”

The volume of shouting increased sharply between the Banshee and Witch. “What is that woman doing?” muttered Ctik, as the Wizard waved her wand with rather careless abandon. “She will do someone an injury.”

Farq sighed. “She doesn't like minding me, as I said. I try not to be a bother, but I think she thinks she's better than this job.”

“But if it is her job...”

“She really doesn't like me...”

Ovalia suddenly broke away from the argument and bounded toward the house. “Get down! Get down!” she cried. “She just called Duo a vile name and he's getting that look!”

“What look?” asked Ctik in alarm.

She shook her head. “Like he's gonna dig another pit!”

Farq's eyes went impossibly wide. “Oh shit!”

From the battlefield, Duo's voice rang out. “Do not threaten me, you sorry excuse for a fuckwit Wizard! I out-rank your damn ass!”

The Wizard drew back as if to point her wand at him.

The spectators hit the ground, Farq whining, “Oh crap, oh crap, oh crap...”

Ovalia landed almost on top of Ctik, bearing him down with her considerable weight, and shielding him from the blast zone. Time seemed to slow for several long moments and then the Wizard... vanished. Duo staggered backwards and collapsed in a heap.

Yeah! More Banshee! I can't wait to find out what Duo's done this time! Where did the wizard end up?

Technically, all Duo's done so far is piss off a really bad Wizard and then fall over. ^___^

Hm. May have to wait for Part 105 to see where she landed. ~__^

Well, I meant what Duo did Duo do to the wizard? Teleport her, disintegrate her, turn her into a bug? With Duo's history of wild magic, it could be anything! I find it interesting that people seem to have assumed that she was teleported. There are so many inventive things that could have happened to her that would make her vanish from site. Who knows maybe the wizard is now a few cm tall with a relative reduction in her destructive potential!

Can't wait for more! I love this story.

Can't give any landing hints; the hamsters haven't even told *me*! ^___^

Well, that settles the question of whether Duo can teleport someone without going along for the ride. Now the question is, where did he teleport her to? And will she survive the experience without being drowned, dropped from a great height, or burnt to a crisp?

Not that I think Q will care much once he hears about whatever she called Duo that Olivia wouldn't even repeat... except to want a piece of her sorry ass himself.

Mmmm... Maybe? ^___^

Q will definitely not give a crap where she is. ^___^

And there was wild rejoicing!

Very nice. It'll be really interesting when Heero finds out about all of this...

Interesting... Remember, that's a curse. ^___~

I'm   sure Heero will be doing a lot of cursing when he hears about this, lol.

Oh wow! That is one STUPID wizard. She knows what he can do and STILL sets him off.

Technically, only the MIO is supposed to know about his explosive qualities, but you know how that goes... ^__^

This really is a stupid Wizard. ^___^
