Okay, this is just an idea I had while looking at a picture of a ninja. Tell me if I should make it a story?

"Omega is moving."


A nod.

"Damnit, I thought they'd gotten the message by now."

Agreement. "Apparently not."


"You want me to round up a few others and speak to them again?" Faint eagerness.

Patient amusement. "As long as you don't come back with anymore stray toys."

Whining. "That was one time! Once!"

"Thrice actually."

Pouting now. "You never let anything go, do you?"

"You should know the answer to that by now."

A grin. "Yeah, but you know I'll keep asking."

"Indeed." Affectionate.

Silence again before several cracks sounded from a luxurious stretch. The owner rising fluidly after before moving into the standard at arms kneel before the other.


"Rise. Have some fun tonight. Just remember not to stay out too late this time. Your mother would kill me if she knew I let you go out without telling her again."

Laughter. "You know I'll be fine."

A smile. "We do, but it doesn't stop us worrying."

A grin. "Then I'll just have to ask you to step up my training again."

Pride. "And we will gladly comply. Now go. Scat. Be home before curfew or I'll leave you to the tender mercies of your mother."

Laughter again. "I will. And don't forget, we have an appointment tomorrow."

"I have not forgotten, Efec. Now go, I have things to do."

"Yes, Alta."

Fading footsteps before the sound of a door sliding open and shut again.

A sigh. "Your time will come soon, Efec. Enjoy your fun while you can."
