Throught the day, Both Piper and Nightshade kept making little jokes about my slight feelings towards Colt. It wasn't as if I full out loved him, it was just a little crush. I hadn't had a boyfriend since my parents had died, and I couldn't really remember how to be in a relationship, so even if I did go out with someone, not neccasarily Colt, I wouldn't know what to do.
Colt, seemingly oblivious to the jokes, started wondering why I was trying to avoid him. Mostly, I would go up into my room, and either read, have lessons for Night on illusion, play my violin, or rant to Ripper.
That day at dinner, Night asked what we were going to do. Finishing my second vodka and coke, I was feeling very woozy, and quite ill.
"Well...I guess we've still got a while to plan this, so...Anyway, I've had an idea. If Nightshade and me go first, using illusion, then we'll be able to locate the entrances of the warhouse, and any blindspots that we can hide in. Since both Colt and Night have super strength, they can knock out a few easily. Piper, I want you to try something quite dangerous. It might put Colt in danger, unless there are a few more of us."
"What is it?" Piper asked.
"I'm thinking...we try to bring Sigh out. She'll be able to lure the men we need to one place, where one of us can tie them up, bring them back here, then Sigh can deal with them how she pleases. The only problems are, that we can't get to the right places at the right time, or if Colt gets dragged in by Sigh's charms." I said, rubbing my cheek. The others looked at me. "But apart from that..." For Some reason, I started into a giggle fit.
"You...really thought this out." Nightshade said. "If we bring men due to be killed back here for Sigh, then she would stay happy, and it deals with the others. Another problem, is innocents." She said. I got up, and filled up three shot glasses with sweet cherry vodka, before necking all three. Colt looked up at me, with raised eyebrows.
"You know, you've had at least fifteen of those, along with three ciders and two vodka and cokes. I think you should lighten up a bit." He said. My brain was fuzzy. I went back to the table, and poked Nightshade.
"I...I don't know, if it's a good idea. It could hurt Colt. Don't wanna hurt Colt. He's *hic* one of us. Like, he's umm....*hic* you know, what's the word? I don't know, he lives with us, and he's real nice. I don't like thinkin' of any of you guys getting hurt. That'd *hic* be really...really..." At that, I fell to the floor. The others rushed over to me, but I fell unconscious.
