"Damn it." Guli reaches into a pocket and breaks a vial of herbs while reciting some short magic words.

The structural integrity of the doorknob is much less structured. Guli breaks the thing with a kick and the door swings open.

And they find Tiuten nearly huddled into a corner, looking very very uncomfortable. Between him and his siblings is a very tall augumented man. He turns and looks at them, stunned.

"You broke my door!" The man yells.

Permalink

Of course. "It was shoddy work anyone could've broken it. Could you do us the favor of explaining what are you doing behind closed doors with our little brother?"

Permalink

Tiuten uses this opportunity to slip past him and to his siblings. He steps close behind Niya and whispers.

"Wanted me to buy a bunch of crap. Wouldn't let me leave when I said no."

The man hears this and gets madder. "He's a liar. Disrespecting in my own shop."

Permalink

"We would more than glad to respect you away from your shop. Niya, take Tiuten home."

Permalink

Niya clutches Tiuten to her chest protectively. "Uh. Are you coming with us?"

Permalink

"In a second."

Permalink

She looks at Guli and then glares at the tall augmented man. Several seconds go by before she nods and starts moving back. "We'll wait for you outside. Be quick."

Permalink

"Don't worry." Guli says glaring at the augmented man in all his 8-feet-ness.

 

 

Minutes later Guli shows up outside rubbing his left eye. It's turning purple. "Well, that is dealt with."

Permalink

"...sure it is. Do you want me to break his shop front window or something too?"

Permalink

"...what if he has good tech later? He wont let me back in if you do that."

Permalink

"I think that bridged is burned after I... cursed him."

Permalink

"Uh... you shouldn't have done that. He totally deserved it, but."

Permalink

"Do you think he'll get me banned from the district?"

Permalink

"Hey! He punched me! A little- okay, a lot of sting in his eyes is not that bad. And I don't think a single shop would have enough pull to ban someone."

Permalink

"I've heard things." Tiuten says cryptically.

Permalink

"Huh, what?"

Permalink

"You're being paranoid, baby brother." She holds him closer and gives him a squeeze. Then she starts smiling, a broad grin on her face. "Oh, I can't wait for mother to see you face, Guli."

Permalink

"I'm glad to help. That was why I took a punch from an guy twice my size."

Permalink

"Less than that. Only about one and a half times your size."

Permalink

Guli laughs and ruffles Tiuten's hair. "We should go back home."

Permalink

"Can we go to another tech shop first? I've still got some money left over!"

Permalink

"No." She snatches his wallet from his pocket. "This is your punishment for wandering off. You promised me you would stick to the main stretch."

Permalink

"And we are all late and if we take any longer mom is going to spontaneously develop a wakefulness gift out of sheer stress."

Permalink

"She would."
