Clock Watching

"Remind me why we've climbed all the way up here?" I said as the wind whistled past my ears.

"It's a fantastic view, isn't it?"

"Roth, you just answered a question with a question. That's supposed to be rude."

"Look down there. Eolist is doing a great job holding off the security people." he paused. "Oooh, that's gonna hurt in the morning!"

Below I could see a small woman, coffee cup outstretched in one hand to prevent spillage facing a burly security guard. It looked a truly unfair match. That said two other security guards were sitting on the ground, back to back rubbing their heads. The uneven opponents were circling each other. In a lightning move Eolist lurched forward and tweaked his knee. He went rigid and fell.

"First time I've seen that - the Eolist Knee Pinch. Like the Vulcan Nerve Pinch but so much lower down."

"I'm done. Time to climb down, if you'll excuse the pun."

We reached ground floor. Eolist was just finishing coffee. "Did you get it done?"

Roth answered, "We've got five minutes to get away from here. We should go."

We dashed through the backstreets and finally stopped by a little cafe. Then it happened. The noise was deafening.



  1. i do so hate it when they make me spill my coffee.

  2. This may have been our finest hour. Please remind me to keep Eolist away from my trick knee.

  3. It was bound to happen, actually.

    And it was bound to be deafening. :-)


    p.s. You're a silly person, aren't you? I've added you to my blogroll...

    1. I hope that I am indeed a silly person. You are up there on my blog roll.

  4. I'm visiting from Roth's bloggy.

    Brilliant story!

    1. Really glad you liked it. I'm off to have a look at your blog...

    1. I shall have a read. I've been doing my place up. It's now full of effects and interesting things, but really needs me to knuckle down and actually produce some more content.
