100.2 Dropping Eaves

In which Nubbins is allegedly a smarmy asshat…

“Did you know about this?”  She’d stewed about it for a few days, but finally Artemis just couldn’t take it any longer, and cornered the vampire after setting up camp for the night.

“Did I know about what?”

So that’s how it was gonna be, eh.

“Don’t play dumb with me, Twilight, there’s no way you didn’t know this chick was from the future, she’s about to be your baby-self’s roomie at that fucking temple.”

Shablam, asshole.

“Ah, you are referring to your earlier conversation regarding Taveah’s origins and my legs.”

Artie smothered a little frisson of embarrassment.  Damn that Tav and her big mouthed libido.

“Yeah, the one you totally weren’t eavesdropping in on.”

“That very one.”  She saw the fleeting hint of a smile tug at the corner of his mouth.

No way was she going to let this ghoul rattle her cage.  Artie shot him her best “say that dumb thing again why don’t you, Mosi” look and waited.

The vampire sighed.  “Fine, yes, of course I know.”

Worked every time.

“And?”

“And what, Artemis.”

Alright, so he was a little bit of a tougher nut to crack than her whinging brother.

“What do you mean ‘and what’?!  She’s from the damn future, like us!  Don’t you even give a crap how she got here?  Doesn’t that warrant, like, a modicum of concern on your part?”

“As I already know how she got here, no, it does not.”

There it was again.  That ghost of a smile…also he had the nerve to look bored.

“You might just be the smarmiest asshat in the world.”

Yeah, it was a shitty comeback, but he’d struck a nerve.  When was the last time someone had made her feel a little dumb?  She tried to rally, going for sort of a general glare of disapproval.

Suddenly she couldn’t wait to get to temple and meet his tender young self.  Boy was that kid in for a treat when she got a hold of him.


Footnotes:

Okay, Artie, but maybe that’s why he’s being a dick to u rn.  Like maybe yuns were too mean to his baby self?  Or maybe he’s a natural tool.  IDEK.
Anyway, girl, don’t let some condescending man get you down!

Are we tired of following travelers around in the jungle yet?  AHAHAHA.
Yeah me too.  Oh well.  Plots.  Or something.  Shablam.

  1. I love following travelers around in the jungle! Curious to see how it will go when Nubbins meets Nubbins though…. hmmm. And who is Preggers? I should know this. But it’s been awhile. Hmmm…..

    1. Bless you for enjoying all the endless hiking! But whoa, I’m not sure the world is ready for 2 Nubbins in the same place! 😱
      That’s how you break reality. Probably. O..O

      Oh that’s Nafi, she finally has a baby bump! 😀

      1. Of course! We already knew she was preggers.. I guess I was thinking someone new! Lol. Soooo. That means we get to see her and Khon’s ‘discussion’ next chapter!

      2. Oh you’re thinking Kebab! Yeah, she’s preggers too 😀 (ehehe, lots of bumps!)
        Nafi lives with Raet and Hattie, eons ago she porked Horus a bunch of times and finally got knocked up.
        I’m sure it’ll all make more sense next chapter! This is what happens when you have 57654812234.75 characters 😔

  2. Awww doodness, bebby Nubbins! 😍 Can I give him a cuddle when we arrive? Can I?
    Lol, seriously Artie, don’t let it get to you. Nubs just has, like, 4000+ years of experience and I’m sure there is not much that could take away his coolness, especially not some girl from the future. At least not at that point any more 😂

    1. Ohh I suppose you can! Better do it now while he’s still mortal and easy to catch 😁
      It’s true, hard to crack thousands of years of practiced coolness, ehehehe
      Don’t take so personal, Artie!!
