I went back to the bar for the first time in forever.
I had left it in capable hands
I sat down at the bar, and wouldn't you know it: Hellsing and Fucking Barry
They look at me and they look so goddam happy to see me its sickening.
"MAURICE" Barry runs up and gives me a hug. I push him off.
"Sorry where'd you go how have you been wall anyone into any walls or anything?"
I ignore him. Hellsing is looking at me pensively.
"Hey little lady, its been a while. How goes?" He postures, sweating like a pig in a sauna.
I nod to him. Barry won't shut up. I can't get a word in edgewise. I sit between them and Doc nods. Doc is good, he asks no questions. Doesn't care.
"M'am if the Proxies are harassing (said like hair-ass-in) you I will dispatch them post-haste. The Order of the Proxie Hunter lives on! And On and On and ONNNN!" He shouts triumphantly.
Barry laughs and they high-five.
and I can only whisper
"what happened to you?"
