I do not own Numb3rs I do not own any of it's characters.
A slight crossover here. Actually more a homage to Dinotopia.
Alas don't own that either. Breathe Deep Seek Peace.
Continuing the adventures of the Downsized Agent Granger.
"Sorry little bud. Duty calls." Colby turned away anger and disappointment burning
in his chest. "Why the hell should I have to listen to them anyway?" he snarled to himself.
He stared out of the window At the far away skate park. It was a school day so it was empty
The outer door opened again.
"For crying out loud David. Just leave me alone."
"Wrong!" Colby recognised Ian's voice. He gave a loud sigh.
"So what? They sent you in here To placate me. Is that it?"
"I think that's the plan."
"Give me a break Ian. I'm not a kid."
"Actually you are."
"Yeah! Well! Unless you creeps stop treating me like one. This kid might start behaving like
a nine year old and believe me. I have one hell of a mean streak When I'm p*ssed."
To his consternation Ian only laughed
"Yeah! I've heard about the infamous Granger temper. What was the name of the perp
You hurled into a swimming pool? A while back?" Colby shrugged and returned
To staring out of the window. Ian came up beside him.
"You wanna go try it out later?" He nodded in the direction of the skateboard park.
"What about your work load?"
"I get a lunch break." He looked down at Colby witha cock eyebrow. "So How about it?"
"Yeah! I'd like to.." he paused then added "Please!" Ian ruffled his hair then as he walked
out called back. "Catch yer later, Granger." Colby almost smiled.
In the outer office Don looked hopeful at Edgerton.
"How did it go?"
"I'm getting there. You've just gotta give me time. Granger may look like a kid
But inside He's a seething volcano About ready to blow. We need to make good
on our promises."
"Well! I think the little sh*t. Should be shoved over to Welfare services." Charlie spat.
He was still smarting over his two week suspension. His brother frowned at him.
"You say or do anything to harm Colby again Charlie. The Director won't have to fire you.
Dad be damned! I'll do it myself." The younger Eppes scowled and stomped away
"Man! Has he always been that bratty? David asked. "I can't decide which one is worse,
him or Colby?"
"Colby's got a right to be disgruntled." Don said. "My brother's just jealous. He's used
to being the centre of attention. Colby's downsizing and his little adventure last week
Is detracting from him and it rankles." Ian suddenly chuckled.
"You think maybe We should get Flanighan to spank your brother?" This made the other two
grin as they returned to the case in hand.
