The Nancy Tribe


Once I calmed down...which took about a week, I started thinking.
I've got to just put everything aside.
I have to just control myself and think about work.
Just.. work.
I have to focus.

Some part of me doesn't understand what happened.
That stupid, naive part. The part that just can't grip onto reality.

And there is the rest of me..
The part that just wants to keep kicking myself.
How STUPID could you have been?!??

I don't really understand how she used me. Or moreover, WHY.
You'd think, that after all that's happened.. I'd be used to it.

But I'm not.
I'm still searching for affection. And, quite frankly, I'm tired of it.
I need something to DO in this hellhole. And that, with my chosen career of choice, would be..what?

I need a Slayer.
Since David was currently out of commission, that left Lynn or Ethan as second in command. Not really wanting to talk to Ethan unless I had to, I went to Lynn's office instead.
Knocking politely on the door, I said softly, "It's Sean. Have you got a moment?"

((Open for Lynn))

I had been under quite a lot of stress. I had mountains of paper work, and the bitter reality of the fact that I was now in full control of the council left me with a many sleepless nights. The work was almost a relief from thinking about David all the time...

There was a knock at my door. Someone else who needed something...

"It's Sean. Have you got a moment?"

"Yes, I can spare a moment. What do you need?"

I walked inside, my face determined.
"I need something to keep my mind of off doing nothing. Either, I need a Slayer, or I need a job. And I was figuring that you knew a quick solution to one of those. Or.. both?"

"Slayers without watchers? Yeah, we have a couple thousand of those just laying around. However, most of them aren't at the council. And I'd rather prefer not sending our trained watchers out of the country at the moment. Here's an idea. Why don't you train Triffy? I'm horribly busy right now and I have no time to work with her. She's very skilled, and quite sane now."

I mentally screwed my face up in an "Oh no.." expression.
Triffy? I've no experience with that sort of Slayer..since she was at one time..crazy..

I haven't talked to her since we healed her.
I don't doubt she's sane, but at the same time.. if that happens again..
I gave my head a slight shake. Sorry, she's too much of a handful for me right now..
"Isn't there something I'm better qualified to do? I'm actually very fast with paperwork, filing.."

"Well there is always paperwork to do. But we aren't short of secretaries we are short of trained watchers. You are better qualified to work with one of the girls and if that isn't suitable for you, then feel free to pack your bags."

I took a good look at Sean. He seemed...I couldn't pick my finger on it. I didn't want to leave him with Triffy anyways...

"Listen Sean, I'll find you another slayer. But please keep in mind, all these girls are going to be troubled. A watcher's job is to guide a young girl to be able to control their power. You have to be responsible. I'm expectinbg you to sort out whatever it is that is bothering you, and remember that as a watcher your job comes first. Is that understood?"

Oh.. so you mean ALL of these girls were insane at one time?
I sighed, keeping my true emotions in check.
"Fair enough. When should I expect the new Slayer?"

"Soon, I should imagine. I'll let you know what I've decided in a few days."

(ooc do we have any current slayers should need a watcher that you can have???)
