This is the ninth and penultimate drabble in the ten part series that I set out to write for elisi 's birthday back in 2012. This is one song I know wasn't in the original list, since I only knew what it was I wanted to write when I realised that Riley & Sam Finn were a pair in the stories they featured in; this then connected back to Illyria, and we get the La Ronde theme revealed.
Having been beating myself up for never finishing this series I think maybe I needed to get to a point where I could see them, or maybe hear them.
CHARACTERS: Illyria; Riley Finn; Sam Finn,
WORD COUNT: 100,
A/N: “Why, now, blow wind, swell billow and swim bark!
The storm is up and all is on the hazard!”
(from Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare)
Part Nine: “Lola.”
The Finns consumed; discussing missions with The Pet.
Like most Humans they often saw only what they expected to see.
He was easily understood; a Hero of the olden times, oft-prepared to die before compromise.
The female was less easily read; outwardly pragmatic, this only seemed so because her end goals were so certain; nought could deflect her.
She accepted that if this Dark Slayer were seeking them, they would have to move; she took their word they would contact Angelus.
She needed him to arrive to help save The Pet.
But when she got back The Pet was gone.
Goddess watch over us all,
