Cold Feet

Post by Scattercat » Thu Feb 24, 2011 5:31 am

"We just think it's gone a little far, Kiedran," said Father. He accepted a drink from the warty demon butler. The demon whisked the tray to Mother, who declined, and then to Kiedran, who plucked up a glass and drank with gusto.

"Nonsense," Kiedran laughed. "Demons are useful for so many things nobody's thought to try yet."

Father opened his mouth to answer, but a tiny sneeze distracted him. He looked down. A blue-skinned demon bobbed gently in the liquor, frost spreading out from its skin. It looked up and met Father's gaze.

"I hate my job," said the demon.

Yeah, working service sucks. Imagine the poor adult novelty demons.

One of these days I will figure out what strawman is saying when he comes out with these things...

How many times now have I said that about your drabbles!

Oh, the power to explain, or to tease...
I find myself looking at the initials on the bracelet on my wrist, asking, "What would the Wisest Stone do?"
He would probably say something inscrutably oriental, like asking if you had looked both upstairs and down.
