'Does the moon look bigger to you tonight?'

The Book of Ataniel

Operation Stall Vickie

“Well?” Vickie said, looking expectantly from Garal to Amatsu.

“Well...” said Garal.

“...what?” finished Amatsu.

“Well, what next?” Vickie said impatiently. “We kacked the wen-ju, we got the macguffin, so why have we been sitting here for the past hour and a half? We are supposed to be saving Jack and co with this gadget, right? Doesn’t it work?”

“Of course it works,” said Garal.

“Then what do we do with it now?”

“Uh...” said Garal.

“...we...” said Amatsu.

“...wait,” finished Garal.

“Dammit, guys!” Vickie snapped her gum angrily. “Look, if you wanted someone for a waiting mission, you should have got Flicker or Praxis or someone to come with you. I could be on another dimension doing something interesting right now!”

“We could not have defeated the wu-jen without your assistance, Miss Dare.”

“Look, we have to wait for Khyrisse’s signal,” Garal sighed. “If I activate the miasma crystals before she’s found Jack and Ebreth, they’ll be stuck there.”

“Well, what’s taking her so long? Geez, is she stuck in molasses?” She frowned on her two friends. “And I thought you said we couldn’t communicate with Khyrisse while she was in the Hotel.”

“We cannot, but--she can send a message to us.”

“A psionic pulse signal,” Garal added. “To Amatsu. Because of his wild talent.”

“Khyrisse isn’t psionic.”

“She brought Tarrin with her,” Amatsu explained.

Vickie made an exasperated sigh and flopped back down. “You two really owe me for this, you realize.”

“This one apologizes,” Amatsu bowed humbly.

“And if this drags out much longer, I’m going to take things into my own hands and create a real plot for us.”

“I’m sure it won’t come to that,” Garal said meekly, glancing nervously at his magic watch.

“It had better not.”
