Around Again It Comes--Part 34

"So... can you get to your feet?"

Eurydice nodded, took a deep breath, and stood on shaky legs.  "There.  See?"

"Very good," said Morgaine, her head wiggling slightly in the chambermaid's arms.

"What was that?" asked Eurdyice.

"I just attempted a nod," muttered Moragine.  "It's... pretty much reflexive."

"Ahh," muttered Eurydice.  "Right."

"What's with the tone?" snapped Morgaine.  "Look, I remember you as a little girl, for a start."

Eurydice narrowed her eyes.  "What does that mean?"

"You're not my type," muttered Morgaine, shutting her eyes.  "Look, my ability to get a good view of the area is... kind of crap at the moment.  What are Manny and creepy blind chick doing?"

"No idea," muttered Eurydice, steadying herself on the wall.  "Fighting I imagine.  He... moved away very quickly, and she... she kept up with him."  She shook her head.  "There is something... unnatural about her..."

"She's a blind woman who sees somehow," noted Morgaine.  "That's sort of a given."  She suddenly grimaced and let out a hiss.

Eurydice looked down at the Dark Lord's head.  "What...?"

"Something... terrible just happened," replied Morgaine.  "Something that I wasn't even sure could..."

Eurydice stiffened.  "Are... are we in trouble?  I mean... worse then we were earlier?  Your Excellency?"

"A little," replied Morgaine.  "It's not the terrible thing you're thinking of.  It's a... different one."

Eurydice gulped.  "Oh."
