WnW: A Tale of Two Kitties Part 3
“Thank you,” Zznaf said earnestly.
It was really the most surprising thing he said yet. Nipp expected the normal Asura disdain, or at least some comment about how their methods were primitive and beastly. But no. Just a thank you. And a sincere one, too.
“Welcome,” Patch purred, trying to sneak a look at whatever it was the Asura was holding.
“What’s so important about that?” the flame-point finally asked.
“I keep my…” the Asura started to explain, then stopped. His face turned strangely sad. “I’m sorry. I’d rather not say. The last stranger I talked to about this stole it and took all my data.”
“Is that why it was up there?”
“More or less.”
“That sucks,” Nipp observed. Then she added, “I can send Patch to rough the thief up for you if you want.”
Patch obligingly pounded one fist into her other open palm to demonstrate.
“What?” Zznaf gave a horrified look. “No! That’s not necessary!”
“You say they were a stranger. Why would you want to protect them?” the Charr inquired.
“Because… well…” he shook his head. “It’s just not the right way to handle this. I’m not sure I understand all the motivations behind the act.”
“Fine,” Nipp shrugged. “It was just an offer.”
Zznaf sighed and looked up at them, “Thanks. I really do appreciate all you’ve done for me. I have some stuff I need to take care of. Maybe I’ll hear from that Whispers contact soon, hmm?”
“Maybe so,” the Charr nodded, watching the Asura waddle off. Then she turned to Patch and murmured, “Why not keep your eye on him. I have a feeling there’s going to be trouble brewing soon.”
The patchwork Charr snarled once before flitting away into the shadows.
Uh oh.. the crew is up to something. :)
