My Saturnalia gift to all. ^___^ Who knows when I'll be back with fic. O.^ With luck, and a stable internet, maybe in a month.

BFB – Part 104 – Freaky

Heero shrugged out of his cloak and hung it on the peg inside his door. He could hear the music coming from the bathroom and smiled to himself. He had hoped that his Banshee would be home. His report for Q could wait until the morning; for now he just wanted some time with his adorable Chosen.

The music, he noted, was Elvish, soft and yet lively. Duo was in the tub, the beer bottle in his hand dancing to the music. Several other bottles lined the edge of the mat. Heero stopped for a moment. Huh. Unusual, but not unheard of. He cleared his throat and Duo started, then tilted his head back to find his Dragon.

“Heero! You're home!”

“That I am,” he agreed. He crouched by the side of the tub, arms folded on the rim. “And you are rather tipsy.”

The Banshee giggled. “Yeah, I am,” he admitted. “I had a good day, then a horrible day, then a great day! The packing is almost finished at the manor house, Gisela has a rental house ready to move into, and I solved the Ctik problem. Also the Farq problem.” He smirked at Heero's wide-eyed look. “I am super critter!” he exclaimed, waving the bottle triumphantly.

“I wasn't aware of a Farq problem. He had a minder...”

“He still does, only it's not that fuckety-fucking horror of a Wizard.” Heero raised one eyebrow. Odd; he'd heard nothing of this in the port room.

Duo tilted the bottle again and finished off the beer. “Oh, damn... I should have saved you one,” he mumbled. “Sorry.”

“Not a problem, my angel. So, what have you done with the minder?”

“Fired her ass! And got Ovalia selected to be Farq's minder! The Farq problem is solved! Um... so is the Ctik problem. Farq offered the basement and cellar of his house to Ctik, if he didn't mind living with a demon.” He flashed a broad grin. “Ctik accepted, and offered to use his furniture and bank account to spiff the place up as a sort of rent. It was so cute! They went back and forth for a good five minutes, thanking each other and insisting that it was nothing extraordinary. Ovalia finally hugged both of them and got them to stop embarrassing us.”

Heero blinked at him. “You got rid of the Wizard, replacing her with Ovalia...” Duo nodded eagerly. “And then Farq and Ctik decided to become... roommates?”

“Yep! Isn't it great!”

“Does Q know about all this?”

“Yup. He signed off on all of it. Especially the firing of that stinking Wizard. Ha!” he laughed. “Well, technically she doesn't know she's fired yet. Q said we'll do that tomorrow morning.”

Heero took a moment to wrap his mind around Duo's coup. “I've never heard of a demon and a vamp getting along; how did this happen?” he muttered to himself. How indeed. Banshee magic, he assumed; that was the only possibility. Then again... Farq and Ctik certainly weren't usual examples of their species.

“And Q said I displayed imagination, control and out-of-the-box thinking. I passed my probation!” He sat up suddenly and wrapped his arms around Heero. “I passed!”

Heero gave up trying to make sense of it; he'd get the complete details from Q in the morning. For now... His clothing vanished and he hugged his slippery Chosen.

“Then we should celebrate,” he purred, oozing over the edge of the tub to join his Banshee.”

“You betcha!”
