Orion didn't catch on that she had said something wrong as quickly as the two boys had. She was still earnestly waiting for an answer to the riddle, even as Dagon's face ballooned and he choked and spluttered on his drink. She must be telling it wrong because Randy's face had done pretty much the same thing. So had Max's, come to think of it, and he'd said things that would turn Becca into a radish if she ever heard them. What was it with Brad's stupid riddle that made them do that?

Before she had a chance to get a straight answer out of him she was attacked from behind. A large hand clamped over her mouth and a familiar, husky voice was telling her off - again. Merlin, it was annoying how he did that. What did he do, wait behind her until she said something he didn't like just so he could tell her off for it?

"I don't want to be borrowed," she tried to say, but all that came out was a string of incoherent mumblings. She wanted to know what it all meant and why they wouldn't tell her.

The cool air hit her just as she was about to batter him over the head with the edge of her heel. He dropped her without much thought to her missing shoe.

"Difficult? What do you mean difficult?" she huffed. Ri's Dad had always told her she was difficult by nature, she didn't need it from Brad too. Her arm shot out to steady herself on his shoulder while she put her shoe back on and then she stamped the heel into the ground instead of his stupid, fat head. "You told me the riddle in the first place!"

    Brad came up to the bar and looked at the drinks along the back. Not that his drink order ever changed, but looking gave the illusion that he had made a calculated decision and kept idiots from... more

        “Riddle?” Brad said. “What riddle I never…” Her words to Dagon came forward in his mind, along with a very clear image of what exactly that actually meant. His nostrils flared, and he could feel his... more

          She stumbled backwards against the wall as he charged forward and her heel got caught in a crack between the paving stones. His arms pinning her in on either side prevented her from getting enough... more

            Brad growled something equally Thestral-appropriate “ Can you just --just don’t--- just, don’t.” One of his fists thumped the wall in frustration “Who told you I don’t like you?” Ri pushed forward,... more

              Brad growled something equally Thestral-appropriate “ Can you just --just don’t--- just, don’t.” One of his fists thumped the wall in frustration and she flinched. “Who told you I don’t like you?” Ri ... more

                For the past few months (which were starting to feel endlessly long) he had heard her say that and excuses clambered all over each other to tell him to stop. Aya Gee had been the loudest. With their... more

                      Up until the last moment she wasn't sure that Bradley wouldn't just growl at her, spit out an insult and stalk off as he usually did. That, or give her a black eye. He didn't though. His full weight... more

                        He wasn’t sure when they went beyond kissing, but it was something that had needed to happen for a long time now. In the back of his mind, something whispered about age differences, their status as... more

                            Drinks. Drinks were good. He nodded and held the door open for her to go through first. He made a point to walk to the other end of the bar, to avoid looking suspicious. It was, unfortunately the... more
