_Cooking Hot_ new stuff 5  

Ebsa hustled around the drill area and got back to cooking.

Snickered at the sound of sappy disco music, and laughed out loud as the Disco personnel, in glittery costumes, danced down the steps . . .

Gunfire from the south . . . was suddenly matching the beat of dance music.

:: The Purps are faking a gunfight. :: Ra'd sounded amused.

:: Something "Old Western" from their early colonial history. :: Paer joined in.

Ebsa frowned. :: I thought they were exiles? ::

:: They were two separate colonial organizations, one a club for kids with purple hair, and one group of fans of the mystique of some pioneer historical period. According to the Purps I've talked to, the only thing the Exile did was speed up the process of getting a world, and throw the two groups together. :: Paer giggled mentally. :: The only thing they argue about now is which group took over the other. At the time they apparently got on just fine. ::

:: I wonder if they're syncing with the music on purpose? Might be subconscious . . . :: Ebsa trailed off.

:: What? ::

:: Well, this guy, :: Ebsa sent a mental picture of the gray-haired man, :: might be the Comet Fall God of Music. ::

A mental snort from Ra'd. :: He's here, but I refuse to believe. In fact I ought to be over watching Nighthawk . . . God, that dance is . . . ::

Ebsa edged out to where he could see the dance . . . with Nighthawk pulling Ra'd out to the floor. And there was Rael, bouncing and—showing up the whole group. Didn't realize a Dancer could dance!

He hastily flipped his chicken and got his attention back where it ought to be.

***

The Blackhorse horses, well, maybe a quarter of them, were tied up behind a rail, where people could admire and pet them. The ones they are dead certain won't bite!

He spotted Paer heading that way and waved his green spatula at her. He hadn't actually used it, plastic not being idea, so he slotted it back in his bucketful of utensils and grabbed a knife to cube more steak.

The next time he spotted her, she was sitting at a table . . . with his mother.

Uh oh!
It is never good when the GF and the mother get together and talk. All sorts of BAD THINGS come out of such discussions.

Re: Uh oh!
Especially when they've never met, and Ebsa's mother has been emoting at high volume about the unsuitability of Ebsa dating the highest of High Oners who is going to use and then discard her little boy!

Re: Uh oh!
Does Ebsa get to kick the Oner bullies (that you promised us) butts while his mother watches? If so, does she give him the "Don't get into fights" spee ch, ,or does she ream the bruised bullies, or both?

"You can't fool me, Young Man! That was no low class street entertainment! And in front of this sweet young lady, whom you have failed altogether to bring home and introduce to me!"

Another One Bites The Dust?
The synchronisation of the music & the shooting had me think of Queen's song Another One Bites The Dust, so I googled for a disco version, only to find that Wikipedia says the Queen version *is* considered Disco (& even has a Freddie Mercury quote that they did it 'cos they wanted to do a disco track)...

Suggestion...
Since the Blackhorse Guards' first performance was so rudely interrupted, they are given second chance.

But this time comet fall 'smart' horses are stealing their show.
Mirroring all the Blackhorse Guards' maneuvers, just only without any riders steering the smart horses.

Re: Suggestion...
Nope, they adapted and picked right up again.

Now the horses are tied up for public admiration and couple of the smart horse mares are planing on "rescueing" their favorites.

Re: Suggestion...
Does this mean that in a few stories time the Oner Army will have to deal with some "God-horse" Colts turning up wanting to serve with the Blackhorse Guard like their fathers?

I mean, the God of Thieves "stole" his horse by asking if she(?) wanted to go with him, so I think having the Horses instigate their relationship should also be a thing at some point (come to think of it, has Pyrite tried to set up Rael with a mount yet?).

Oh yes. What colour house clashes with red hair?

Y'a know, hanging a mirror ball over the black block of the DISCO hq while they dance would be cute...
matapampamuphoff on August 6th, 2018 01:23 pm (UTC)
Tsk! How'd I miss the disco ball? Levitated over the dance floor, I think.

"This ain't no party, this ain't no disco, this ain't no fooling around." Oh, wait, it kinda is. :)
