The door on the second-floor corridor in Main opens quietly. Charlie McGee steps out, looking one way and the other, and then reaches back to grasp Prometheus's hand and draw him through with her.

"All quiet so far," she says to him in an undertone.

His eyes sweep the empty hall. "You expecting much company?" he murmurs back. He doesn't usually creep this quietly unless he's breaking in somewhere.

"Should, not likely... that's a pretty slim set of possibilities to hang your hat on. 'Specially as regards lights out."

He lifts his gaze, in no way not attempting to hide any impishness in his own countenance.

"There might have been a time or two when it was expedient to stow myself and/or some other people and/or objects in houses of worship occupied solely by the fairer sex."

It's quite a set of stories, if that tone of voice is any indication.

"But I made a solemn vow never to reveal those secrets. Anyway, it was the 1500s, people did that stuff all the time."

He trails, still rubbernecking. "If only I'd had the presence of mind to make ridiculous vows, we'd be having an entirely different conversation right now!"

"...oh hey now."

Beneath the moonlight, a scrim of frost sharpens the landscape and tinges the desert blue-white. (There aren't many cities in deserts these days, not truly, not like there used to be. He doesn't get to see this very often.)

"That's quite something."

"Well, it seems to do well by you." He leans lightly against her shoulder.


...an instant later, he's frowning. "You hear something?"

"This place is pretty secure, right?"

The hallways are very dark. He half-lifts his free hand, balled into a fist that fizzes, very vaguely, with almost-sparks.

He treads softly into the shadow, listening for the interloper.

It would be easy to call up a flame, to scare them into showing themselves, but here of all places, that wouldn't be wise.

He waits, quite still, in the middle of the hall.

One bushy eyebrow arcs up, maybe or maybe not unseen.

He swivels to glance at Charlie.

That expression, really, says it all.

He turns back to the darkened hallway.

"I think we've been compromised," he announces.

No one can see him smile, but they can surely hear it.

Another giggle.

And a dark curly head peering out from behind the nearest cross-corridor.

"Found you," Yuanli says happily.

He slips his hands into the pockets of his jacket. "If I'd known there was going to be hide-and-seek, I'd have worn better shoes. Does this make me It now?"

Date: 2008-03-02 04:24 am (UTC)

Two other girls slide out of the shadows. They're all wearing lavender pajamas, and none of them look particularly contrite.

"Brought a guest," Zillah offers.

"Quite the ambush," he remarks, very dry. His hands stay close in his pockets. "I'm afraid you've caught me, ladies. I'm John Desmotes."

It comes out so easy.

"Bound," says Beth, her arms folded, eyeing the tall man assessingly.

"From the Greek."
