Chateau Grief 348

Narration(Kore): His sciatica.

Narration(Kore): His bunions.

Narration(Kore): Whether or not I might murder him later.

Grant: Consarn it!

Narration(Kore): Whether or not Ves, excellent candidate that he is, might one day succumb to gout.

Narration(Kore): It’s like living above a train station.

Xander(telepathy): Shut up! I don’t need you whining too! Go back to sleep!

Narration(Kore): Don’t respond.

Narration(Kore): It doesn’t do any good to encourage these sorts of long distance communications. Too much room for error. I need his cooperation.

Narration(Kore): I still have to go back to the board with a good story. Stopping Ves’ cavalier toying with the diamond cartel is not an optional side-activity for me.

Narration(Kore): And Shane is going back to the mainland. Given Ves’ very welcome decision to heal him. I don’t remember much about Thanos but I know I owe him my life, 48 times.

Narration(Kore): Ninety-six bullets. Left. Right.

Narration(Kore): Two hours.

Narration(Kore): Two hours before I plan on marching into the bookstore to demand an audience with Rafe. Two hours to come up with another twist of mental pressure on Rhelan Grant.

Narration(Kore): Before I head across town to Di’s ‘pitiful shack’ and make sure the burn on her chest isn’t infected.

Narration(Kore): If only the whole island will stop slamming doors in my head.

Xander: Mmf. It’ll wait. Five more minutes. Come back to bed.

Author Notes:

this was bound to happen eventually.

Episode Recap:

It’s like three hours earlier than the last scene. Kore is waking up. Grant has already woken up at like 3 am and is walking around the house, thinking. Kore narrates to us what Grant is thinking. Grant slams a few drawers for good measure. He shouts at the microwave. It’s a normal morning. Kore is irritated at hearing his thoughts. Also presumably she’s irritated that he’s slamming stuff around the kitchen. Xander in turn is irritated at Kore’s irritated thoughts. Telepaths. How fun. Kore, fully awakened by Xander shouting at her from across town, groggily gets up and thinks about her plans for the day. She will not be baited. She has a schedule. Given all the developments of the previous day, she’s got a lot of things to do to secure her new position. Grant finally slams the front door and drives away with his crappy transmission. Kore’s going to track down and confront practically everyone today, including everyone’s least favorite messenger of the Lord, who himself is now on his way to mind-boggle Rhelan Grant ahead of Kore’s plan to do the same. Kore will diligently work to get everyone taken care of, on her side, and moving towards her goals…just if she can manage telepathy for long enough to wake up. And then…well. You see what the dastardly brash lacks-the-concept-of-boundaries confuse-monster does next. Don’t say you’re not happy about it, either.
