After hanging out with Raven for a few hours that afternoon, Kathy headed into town to get a little more work done at Dite's. She wasn't sure she was actually accomplishing very much, but it at least felt like she was making progress on something and that felt almost as good as her evenings in the warehouse. She'd gone back the night before and it had been just as good as the first time, finally feeling truly alive as she'd dodged and punched and kicked.

Her face had avoided getting any new bruises--and the ones from Wednesday were carefully covered by makeup any time she left her room--but a couple of the body shots she'd taken had her moving a little more carefully than usual. Still, every flare of pain when she moved too fast or bent too far was another note in the sensory orchestra that reminded her that she was still a living girl who dreamed about being a zombie and not a zombie dreaming about being alive. That distinction was important.

She fired off a few texts to Anders in case he was feeling chatty and then set about opening the delivery boxes and getting inventory up on the shelves. In the background, her computer played the Raptor News Network theme. Ever since Dante had told her that Bob Barbas was a demon, she'd been watching his show to get an idea of what he was like.

So far, all she'd gotten was that he would fit right in with Trump and his cronies. Which said a lot about the current administration, didn't it?

[For one, please!]

I'm bored. Have you heard from Dante yet?

Anders had been pacing the dorm halls, convincing himself not to make too big a deal of any of this. It wasn't easy.

Yeah, Anders returned. Vergil had a job for him. Didn't mean to be telling secrets.

He wouldn't have brought it up, if he'd known Kathy didn't know. This was awkward.

That's the one, Anders agreed. And I'll be there in a few. Anything I should bring?

That is the perfect sex shop couch, Anders returned, with admiration. I like the way you think. I'll be there in 15. Are tacos OK?

He was already on his way out the dorm door as he typed the last sentence.

No problem. Anders thought it was a little unusual Kathy asked for tofu, but not unusual enough to ask her about. Maybe it was a Korean thing.

Anyhow, he was more interested in that cup photo.

How classy are balls, anyhow? I always wonder that.

Why stop there? Anders returned -- and even if Kathy wasn't enjoying herself, he sure was. They need more. A cape and a hat with a feather in it. Feathers are very important for classy balls.

By the time he hit send, he was in line at the taco place.

What's a ball without a few buckled swashes? Anders returned, laughing out loud and earning a few uneasy looks from his fellow patrons. And do you want guac?

It depends, Anders typed back. I believe in letting my patients buckle as many swashes as they want, until their Jolly Roger isn't so Jolly.

He paid for the tacos and headed back into the night.

"You can roger my buckles any time," Anders said, as he opened the door and walked in, fragrant bag of Mexican food in one hand and goofy smile on his face. For a moment, things almost felt normal. "I'm not sure how to work the swashes in. You might need to check with Isabel about that."

"I figured we couldn't live on candy alone,"Anders said, and he couldn't help but return that grin. "Even if you just made me think about sex spiders. I might have to keep the guacamole for that."

"Well, that'll be a first," Anders joked, holding the bag just out of reach as he stepped toward the couch. "No sex-spiders while we're eating? Promise?"

It did, which was why Anders hesitated unwrapping the food and looked up at her to see if she'd meant it the way he heard it.

"I'm not sure there's a way to answer that, that won't sound filthy," he told her. "So I'll just nod and look very dignified and serious. See?"

He gave her a dignified, serious, and completely smug look.

"Wench," Anders said between gasps of laughter as he tried to keep the guacamole out of Kathy's reach. "I should've known you only wanted me here for the avocado."
