Reasonably assured that Otto will mind his manners-- as well as his incisors-- at least for the time being, Sil turns her attention to Liliyana. She shakes her head, silently pondering if she should explain that she had meant for the word "princess" to be used somewhat perjoratively. Ultimately, she decides agaist it. Ah, sorry then, my mistake.

She REALLY likes me! were Jimmy's thoughts, even while stumbling to maintain the balance Sil had robbed him of by grabbing him.

He looked at Quorky. Don't even think about eating it or pecking at it!

Quorky had half turned round on his shoulder, eyeing the Rat from above, bowing his head from time to time.

Eat it?! Do I look like I eat trash? And I guess that staying alive in the same room as that sorry imitation of a living being probably qualifies as a miracle of medical science. Please don't let it stay in the room we sleep in. Call the rat catcher while the pixie is gone, or I'll lure the cats in. AND make sure you get a top bunk.

You'll do nothing of the sort, you hear? You should solidarize with it, you are probably the only familiars in the watch! Sometimes you find yourself in situations with unlikely allies.

Oh, really? And when did that brilliant thought hit your mind? When the Jermlaine said he was a tank, when the gnome shook your hand and said I looked wonderful, or when the little princess in skirts glittered after you? I now officially hate you for taking this job.

Quorky stayed with his back turned the way Jimmy was looking in his own silent kind of protest, while Jimmy was now pushing hard against the door which he supposed must be the dorm.

Lumperious follows the Jermlaine with his eyes as it flies around the rest of his companions and heartily shakes hands with the walking suit of armor and the young woman in the flowing dress. He then follows them merrily as they make their way towards the dorms. His bouncing shuffle makes it appear as if he is going to fall over with every step, he is so excited.

At the sight of the rat he begins jumping up and down and clapping excitedly.

"Oh how WONDERFUL!" He tries to catch the rat to pet it as it skitters to the Jermlaine, but at the hint of possible plague he backs off. "When I was a boy I had a pet rat! I named him Mr. Nibbles and we had grand adventures together. Sadly it didn't end well for him. I had dressed him up as a knight and I dressed as a dragon and when he battled me in the final cave before he could find the princess (which was a block of cheese of course) my dragon breath did him in. I cried for a whole day afterward. It was terrible. It didn't help that I had used our best silverware to make his armor and weapons. My parents didn't let me have a pet ever again.

Lumperious sighs and looks off seemingly lost in memory, a frown on his face.

"What du yu mean, it dinna end well? Yu got the silver, un' yu got crispy rat, what's wrong wi' that?" The jermaline scratched the back of his head, showering the floor with flakes of mud and filth. "U guess yu dun't know when yu got i' good."

Hearing the words of the imp, Lumperious shrinks away from him disgusted.

He goes to work arranging his things in their new home, unpacking and stowing away objects and getting accustomed to his bed and surroundings.

Examining their new bunk room carefully, Amadeous picked the one with the newest-looking matress, and dashed for it, only to stop short with the matress starting at his eye level and rising from there. Glaring hard at the offending furniture, he flicked his hands and muttered what could have been a couple of swear words, and the sheet snaked down to floor level for him to grab hold of and haul himself uncomfortably onto the bed. "Needs a fu'n' ladder. Whut sortu beds is this?" Jumping up and down on the mattress, he watched Otto scuttle effortlessly onto the bed, then surveyed the others as they put their things in thier trunks.
"So, whutta we du' now?"

Liliyana had moved over to her own bunk, holding up the bed sheet in the air as she scrupulously inspected it for any tell tale stains.

"We unpack and get briefly get acquainted to our new home, I suppose." Liliyana replied as she moved on to inspect every single side of her mattress, pillow and pillowcase. "It looks like we really are sharing one bunk room, doesn't it? We'll have to make do and do all of our changing in another room."

"You could always ask one of us to lift you to your mattress." she then added to the jermlaine. "That's what friends are for, after all."

His best friend is a rat, Sil remarks sarcastically to Liliyana, do you really think he cares if there's a stain on the underside of his mattress?

Jimmy had been stowing things in his locker as well, he was now holding a sheet of paper in his hand and repeatedly failing to draw attention with a fake cough.

"Ahem! I thought that "What do we do know?" was an excellent question by our Jermlaine comrade. I have ... " He made frantic waving motions with the paper in hand, on the top of which could be read, in a highly erratic hand: Unified Police Syndicate

"Prepared the notes and an agenda for a first meeting and founding session. I think we should stand united in the face of oppression, and need to get organized as a syndicate. I think that, as we have all experienced " He looked meaningful at the Jermlaine, Sil and Liliyana.

"that the special necessities of the diversity of different employees of the watch are not taken sufficiently into account. I therefore move that our first demand be dormitories separated by sex, and our second demand be special furniture for those of, aeh, tiny persuasion. Also, I think that after we have founded ourselfs, our second move should be to try to extend the syndicates comradely greetings to our friends in the army and other government services. "

Jimmy looked expectantly at the others, the sheet of paper in his hand facing them.

Amadeous squinted at the other wizard. "U'm no uh comrade. Uh follow n' neo-primitivist pre-economic a-social exchange system. Don' need nu re-dustrubution. 'N' uh don' need no fancy furniture, neither. U'll jus' fix t'us up ull myself." Now sitting on the edge of the bed with his legs dangling far from the floor, the squinty-eyed gremlin seemed to have a sudden brain-wave. "'Ang un, t'us Union thung would need, like, dues un' fees un' such, wouldn' ut? I could gut behin' that, guttin' ull them army fulks 't pay dues so we luk ufter thum, like."

"The U.P.S..." Liliyana read out loud the acronym that Jimmy had written for all of them to see.

"Your list of demands sounds reasonable enough, but maybe we should do our job a bit first before beginning to ask...? We don't want to sound ungrateful just after receiving our jobs. Besides, everyone knows that good deeds always gets rewarded!" she added with way too much enthusiasm. One would expect her to start twirling...

Which she actually did, but only a half twirl to turn around and face her bed again so she could resume fluffing up her own pillow. "And there's so much more at stake in our position than just money. We get to protect the city, and make sure that everybody can live in peace! Live their dreams! Find true love!"

Sil climbs to the top of one of the bunks. Sitting there with her short legs dangling over the side, she fluffs her pillow. Regular meals and a bit of coin, she answers, reclining on the thin mattress, and a rat-free place to sleep-- looks like the job has already let me down where that is concerned.
