Rebecca dawdles to look at the orange.

Permalink

She seems a large white and orange koi in the gap between the leaves.

Permalink

Neat!

She trots along to catch up.

The Master continues onwards at a fairly quick pace, before freezing and spinning around and darting quickly sideways into the alley between two buildings (though the alleys here have little in common with the alleys of older human cities. This particular one has a cheerfully bubbling fountain and a series of benches designed for a variety of body shapes).

"- what is it," she whispers, following him.

Permalink

"Old friend," he says, in a tone that implies the opposite.

"I'd thought I'd put enough years between now and my last visit, but apparently she's still here. And knowing her, probably still very pissed."

Permalink

"What'd you do to her?"

Permalink

"I didn't do anything!" he says, offended. 

"She's the one who picked the planet. How was I supposed to know the islands were alive? It's not like there was a sign!"

Permalink

"There are islands that are alive?"

Permalink

"Apparently! And apparently everything on them has gills, even the birds. Birds shouldn't have gills. We didn't realize until it decided to take a dive."

Permalink

"Wow. Uh, I don't know what happened still but it sure sounds wild."

Permalink

"It was."

He peeks around the corner.

"I think she's gone."

Permalink

Rebecca nods.

Permalink

He steps back out onto the street.

Permalink

She follows along.

Permalink

A loud voice says, "Hah. I knew it! You really should get more than one coat. I would've spotted you from a mile away."

The speaker is a tall woman, smiling a slightly vicious smile. Her eyes are silver with narrow pupils. Both her teeth and nails are slightly too sharp. 

She turns to Rebecca, her smile shifting to something more genuine, and waves.

"Hi, I'm Kyris. Sorry to interrupt, but this scoundrel you're with owes me."

Permalink

"Um," says Rebecca.

Permalink

Kyris puts her hands on her hips.

"You promised me that you'd take me to Arven so I could get samples of the local plantlife!"

Permalink

The Master crosses his arms.

"I did!"

Permalink

"No, you almost drowned me and then dumped me right back here without even so much as  a goodbye! That doesn't count."

Permalink

Rebecca contrives a sudden need to sit down somewhere and nurse her infant.

Permalink

The argument continues for several minutes. 

Permalink

She listens, but not especially attentively.

Permalink

A minute in the Master puts his hands over his ears.
