"How did you ever end up in the Corps?" Malia slipped through the door and swept the beam of her flashlight over the room - not a library, as she'd hoped, but some sort of office, in more disarray than anything they'd found yet.

"Really good test scores. And I can hit a bullseye at 500 yards, which squeaked me by the psych."

"...Our psych eval needs evaluating." She picked the smallest desk and sat down, carefully, in the chair.

"Well, what about you, Miss Loves-Everything?"

"What we need," Katydid declared, "is a place to eat."

Jorge looked over at her dubiously. "Like a dining room table? 'did, I'm sure you've noticed, but this is a shanty."

"No, no." Her gesture took in the small jury-rigged building. "This is a place to sleep and not freeze. We need a place to eat."

"Okay, you're repeating yourself. Have you gone to the clinic recently?"

"No," she frowned. "They make my brain buzz. This place, Jorge, this shanty-town, Hoover-ville, cardboard city - we need a place to eat."

I bid him a quiet, respectful, tearful goodbye, and sold him to the best broker in town, demanding - and getting - promises about his well-being and the type of place to which they'd sell him. He'd do well. He was so very well...trained.

I was angry at the Ice Queen all over again after that - for being right. For winning, again. For being my Countess. For calling for me when my mother was dying. But I went. She was my liege, and she'd been right.

And our air conditioner was on the fritz. We had six so-called adults, two cats, three rats (the domestic sort), and one small child in a four-bedroom house, we had eaten all the popsicles, and our air conditioner was spitting out lukewarm air.
