Stop 2: Shia’s Not Happy


By Jess Haines

Hello there!  Jess Haines here.  I’m the author of the urban fantasy H&W Investigations series HUNTED BY THE OTHERS, TAKEN BY THE OTHERSDECEIVED BY THE OTHERS and the upcoming STALKING THE OTHERS.

Shiarra has been having a pretty bad time of things lately. She’s here with some of her friends (and otherwise) to tell you about it.  Over to you, Shia!


Sara: You’ve got a little… uh… eye twitch thing going on over there.  You okay?

Shiarra:  No.

Royce:  She’s been having a stressful month. Perhaps now is not the best time—

Shiarra:  Untie me.

Chaz:  We can’t do that.  You’re being unreasonable, hon—

Shiarra: (*CENSORED*)

Arnold:  Wow.  I didn’t even know those words were in your vocabulary.

Shiarra:  (*CENSORED*)

Chaz: Babe—

Shiarra:  (*CENSORED*)

Chaz:  Honey—

Shiarra:  (*CENSORED*)

Sara:  I feel like I’m on the Jerry Springer show.

Chaz:  You aren’t helping.

Royce:  I’d probably find this immensely entertaining if I had some ear plugs.

Arnold:  I can conjure up some popcorn.

Shiarra:  Screw you guys. Let me out of here!

Royce:  Perhaps if you calmed yourself, Ms. Waynest, we wouldn’t find these measures necessary.

Sara:  I don’t really like the vamp, but he’s got a point.  You can’t really go around murdering and pillaging across the land.  That went out of style with the Vikings.

Arnold:  Pillaging never goes out of style.

Chaz:  What the hell are you talking about?

Royce:  I believe they’re trying to calm the lady down. Perhaps you should take a step back before you worsen matters further, dog.

Chaz:  She’s my girl.

Shiarra:  Like hell!

Royce:  Seems the lady would beg to differ.

Shiarra:  I’m not yours, either, fang-boy.  I don’t belong to anybody, and as soon as I get out of here, I’m going to destroy you both.

Royce:  While I do find the idea of the attempt amusing, I don’t want to see you injure yourself. Let the authorities deal with the mutt.

Chaz:  Shut up, worm-bait.

Arnold:  Not that I think Chaz is in the right here, but she doesn’t seem too happy with you, either.

Royce:  Yes, I’m aware of that.

Sara:  So?  Doesn’t bother you?

Royce:  Why should it?  I have an eternity to change her mind.

Shiarra:  Yeah, and my eternal answer is no.  Always and forever, no.

Royce:  Don’t be too sure of that, Ms. Waynest.

Arnold:  If you added “I have my ways” into this conversation somehow, the scary vampire image cliché would be complete.

Sara:  Oh!  Oh!  And a little “I vant to suck your blo-o-o-o-d,” too!

Shiarra:  …you… really aren’t helping, Sara.

Sara:  Sorry, but I’m pulling the best friend privileges card on this one.

Shiarra:  Damn it, stop making me miss you.  I can’t think straight when I’m hunting if I’m stuck worrying about you, too.

Sara:  Sucks to be you. Stop the crazy train and come back.

Royce:  Yes, Ms. Waynest.  Come back to us.  You know it won’t be so terrible to return to me.  I can help you.

Chaz:  Oh, hell no.  She’s not going back to you.

Shiarra:  (*CENSORED*) you both! I make my own decisions now.  Right now, my plans definitely do not include either of you, other than showing you the pointy end of a stake.

Arnold:  Since when did you turn into the Chosen One?

Shiarra:  …what?

Arnold:  You know.  The Slayer.  Buffy.  Must stake all evil, soulless vampires.  That sort of thing.

Shiarra:  I’m not even going to dignify that with an answer.

Sara:  What about me?  You left me in the lurch. Parked alone with the vampire, no less.

Shiarra:  I’m really sorry. I’ll explain it to you when we have a moment alone.

Royce:  Oh, I don’t think so.  I’m quite interested in hearing your explanation for your behavior as well.

Shiarra:  Bite me.

Arnold:  Very poor choice of words, there.

Shiarra:  …err.

Chaz:  I won’t let him touch you.

Shiarra:  You know what?  No.  I won’t let him touch me.

Chaz: Ha!

Shiarra:  And neither will you.  Never again.

Chaz:  …(*CENSORED*)
