A tiny woman, only five inches tall, reaches the top of the couch arm and lifts her hands in the air triumphantly, then turns to look up at him with curious sapphire eyes.
He stares back, wondering just what this creature is -- and what he should do about it ...
Her hands go to her hips as a holographic screen pops up behind her.
His brows soar up.
"Oh, really? Why?"
She stops to think about it, then shakes her head.
NO, IT'S THE FUTURE. WHAT YOU CAN DO IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN WHAT YOU DID.
This provokes a snort. If she can't make up her mind ...
"So what if what you can do can become
what you did?"
She frowns up at him, then goes very still as she figures out what he said. THEN YOU BE VERY CAREFUL.
"Oh, I plan
What a nice smile. He's such a little devil, isn't he?
Those tiny eyes narrow, and then out comes the finger to scold. CAREFUL FOR EVERYBODY. NOT JUST FOR YOU.
She's a brat herself, her creator just gave her a bossy streak.
"This isn't going to cause any damage worth mentioning, believe me."
"Just a bit of an experiment."
HAVE YOU TALKED TO SOMEONE WHO KNOWS ABOUT TIME TRAVEL?
know about time travel."
Thoughtful scrutiny, and then she's distracted by a shiny bit of tinsel on the couch.
Her distraction provoked an upquirked brow; then R-Shadow let his attention roam a little.
Not so much that he wasn't keeping tabs on where she went, mind ...
The tinsel gets twisted into a tiny loop and set neatly on her hair like a crown, and then she's grinning up at him and feeling very pleased with herself.
Strange, strange little creature. Still, if that was all it took ...
Reaching into a pocket, he draws out a few stray bits of metal and artificial 'crystals', and scattered them on the couch to see what happens.
YOU DROPPED YOUR SHINIES. She pointed.
"I did. Are any of them interesting?"
She gave him a 'well, duh
Yes, definitely interesting. Would it be metal, or crystal?
"Feel free to make away with any of them, if you want --"
A suspicious tilt of the head. YOU'RE GIVING AWAY YOUR SHINIES....
The little critter is getting a bit repetitive in his mind; R-shadow shrugs, still smiling.
ARE THEY GOING TO BLOW UP ON ME?
