    "It was~!" exclaimed Discord's eagerly anticipated response. But the voice did not come from either Fluttershy or the nurse. It came from non other than the wild marshmallow bunny appearing all the way on the other side of the room, standing perfectly on the threshold. Yeah, when you're a marshmallow bunny, you could do that. You could also kick the sorry butts of chaos incarnates when you're a marshmallow bunny, too.

    Now, there's no need to worry about how Bun-Bun managed to find his way into the room on his own. It was quite easy really, with all conversing and shenanigans going on. Looks like they found their little patient after all, and oh look! - he was even awake and talking again. Now that he was aware of his surroundings, Bun-Bun could now productively boast in his face about how weak he was.

    I also heard you like Bun-Buns. So here you go.

    "Now I knew I was going to take you out, but no way did I expect it to be like that!" he gloated, clapping his hands together for emphasis. "Two hits, and already you were knocked out. That's really sad, man. You gotta get your stuff together. And stop picking on people because they're smaller than you." Keep that overconfidence and most assuredly he'd be dead in about another month or so. Good thing he had someone like Bun-Bun around to knock him (literally) upside the head. Discord should be thankful.

    "Oh yeah?" The nurse replied with a raised eyebrow and amused grin. Discord must have made a similar joke at the dragon. Fluttershy proceeded to give a very condensed version of what had happened, conveniently leaving out the fact that he'd been struck by a marshmallow bunny. The draconequus wasn't fooled, and he instead asked about the bunny in question. Floyd would honor Fluttershy's wishes though, so when Discord asked, he began to answer "Alright, it wasn't-"

    Bun-Bun wrote:"It was~!"

    Floyd turned sharply to look at the unwelcome intruder, hands on his hips. "I told you to wait in the waiting room! This isn't the waiting room!" What, did he come back here to gloat in Discord's face? Floyd's face melted into a glare. "Don't antagonize my patient. If you want a rematch, you can get your sweet little behind out of this building!" As if it wasn't enough that Bun-Bun was here, someone else was also on their way to the room, the sound of heels clacking the only warning before a robotic Doctor appeared right behind Bun-Bun.

    "That better be the patient you lost, Nurse Floyd." Dr. SALLI's optics were primarily on the patient on the bed, and the pony and nurse next to him. Though her optics darted downwards at the plush rabbit in front of her and her gaze hardened sternly before looking back to Floyd.

    The nurse seemed to pale a bit, glancing at Discord awkwardly. "W-well we didn't lose him--we didn't lose you so much as misplace you." The last part of that sentence was more directed at Discord, in case he got worried that the people who were supposed to be taking care of him had lost him. "Aaand I fixed him up! He's all better now. And that's what really matters, right?" He rubbed the back of his neck and grinned a bit too widely.

    The Doctor crossed her arms at him. "You scared my patient. You scared her so much she laid her egg prematurely. You're lucky she was about due anyway." Again her optics darted down to Bun-Bun but she failed to address him directly. "And what is he doing in here?" Discord was the patient, and from the way the pony was holding one of the patient's limbs, she had to have been a friend. But what was the obnoxious rabbit doing in there?

    "Gloating, mostly."

    "I see." She stepped over the rabbit and into the room fully to stand next to Discord's bed. "I am sorry Nurse Floyd misplaced you, and I hope you are alright. And if the bunny is a problem, I can remove him for you. Stress doesn't lend itself well to the healing process." Everywhere you go, Bun-Bun, making friends.

    Fluttershy frowned slightly at Discord's response. He seemed more preoccupied with Bun-Bun and his stolen honor rather than on his own health. He better not be thinking about getting even with him. Who knows what else he could do if he-

    Oh, there he was, standing in the doorway. "Oh, hi Bun-Bun," Fluttershy greeted softly. Everyone around her didn't seem to have that same mentality, though. The harsh responses exchanged seemed to only drown her voice out, as with most things. The doctor came in, too. While Fluttershy felt bad for the poor creature they'd scared into laying her egg early, she also felt bad that they almost lost Discord. "Nurse Floyd didn't mean to lose Discord either. It was my fault for tagging along that he almost lost him, honest." She glanced at Discord, her expression saddened even more.

    However, her body jolted at the doctor's tone of voice toward Bun-Bun. Fluttershy was almost inclined to ask what she meant by that. Had he been here before and caused them both grief? She knew that the marshmallow bunny was not one of the most pleasant of critters to get along with, but the only way they'd be acting like this is only if they had encountered him before. Before Discord could do anything to hurt himself or even push himself out of bed, Fluttershy was quick to restrain him whether he needed it or not, her forelegs both spread out and coiled tightly around his arm. There would be no Round 2. Not as long as she could help it. Once she felt that he wouldn't make any sudden moves, she let go and pat his paw.

    "I'll take care of this," she cooed, letting go of him to take on a more assertive stance. "Bun-Bun, I don't know what you did to offend all of these people, but I believe that you owe Discord as well as them an apology." Her eyes were big, yet furrowed as well, as if she were threatening to do something with them, and Bun-Bun would know that she was. No pony goes around hurting her friends, and then gets away with it.

    Bun-Bun wrote:"It was~!"

    Speak of the devil and he shall appear.

    Discord glared at the marshmallow, his yellow eyes blazing. There was no way! It simply wasn’t possible! It was just a bunny! He couldn’t have taken him out in two hits! ”You really shouldn’t exaggerate; you might get taken even less seriously than you already are,” he growled, but couldn’t help but feel a little pin prick of dread deep, deep down inside himself. He swiped it away--if Bun-Bun was telling the truth then Discord was Sapphire Shores.

    Discord didn’t react much when the other one approached the room, assuming from her outfit that she was probably a doctor. Aside from that, however, he was starting to lose track of what was going on. Something about a patient that had laid an egg, Bun-Bun being an intrusive nuisance, and the nurse losing him. Wait, huh…?

    ”’Lost’?” Discord’s glare was replaced with a confused look. What was this about misplacing him? He supposed he could be rather hard to keep track of at times, but usually that only applied when he was conscious. ”What did I miss?” When the doctor lady approached him and spoke, he simply waved away her concerns. ”Don’t worry about it. No harm, no foul.”

    As for the bunny… Discord’s dark expression returned as he looked over the intruder when the doctor mentioned removing him. He opened his mouth to say something, but Fluttershy spoke first, cutting him off before he could. He closed his mouth and watched as she left his side--one of his eyebrows raised--to approach Bun-Bun. She would take care of this? He was touched, really, but if this bunny had handed his tail to him on a platter, then he seriously doubted that the marshmallow would be intimidated by Fluttershy and her adorable little attempts at assertiveness.

    As she “demanded” an apology, Discord shot a brief glare at Bun-Bun as if daring him to think about taking even half a step towards her. Of course, there wouldn’t be much he could do about it if the rabbit decided to try anything, but that wouldn’t stop him from trying. That didn’t mean he wanted to have to, however, and he’d rather that Fluttershy just left it alone before another fight ensued. ”I don’t think he’ll back down that easily Fluttershy. Besides, the only thing he owes me is an eventual rematch. Just leave it,” he warned quietly. He’d hate to have to break it to her, but that stare wasn’t nearly as effective as she gave it credit for. He seriously doubted that Bun-Bun would be affected by it if she chose to use it.

    "Yeah, and you shouldn't live in denial, either." he snapped back. What's wrong, Discord? Candy too hard to stomach? Yeah, you lost your pride to a marshmallow bunny. That, and you're also Sapphire Shores. Sorry, not sorry.

    At least the welcoming committee was nice. Seemed warm and inviting enough for him. The death threats seemingly nonexistent this time around. To be honest, the marshmallow bunny wasn't interested in a rematch this time around. The spar was so pathetic that he'd rather watch paint dry than to try and beat him up, again. That's how boring beating up Discord was.

    Oh, and the doctor came in. She seemed to miss him a lot.

    The only thing Bun-Bun seemed to really take interest in was ironically the pony. He backed away almost, as if he had been stuck with a paw clinging to the archway of the door. "Oh, right," he replied. It's the reason why he even showed up here in the first place; to apologize to this freak. This shouldn't be too hard… right?

    "Well, Discord, I'm...I" he stopped abruptly, feeling something in his spirit being pulled down and the oxygen fleeing from all around him. He grabbed his neck and began coughing. He panted hard, trying to get in a good breath. "I-!" Bun-Bun tried to spit, but he gagged again, falling to the floor. No. No, he couldn't do it. It was against everything he stood for. Discord started it, so why should he apologize?

    Bun-Bun let out a whimper, his fist pounding against the floor. He glanced at them, tears streaming from his eyes and once he realized that, he quickly retreated, bolting down the hall. There was a water dispenser he found nearby and hastily the marshmallow bunny yanked the container off its place, displacing its contents all over the floor before he stuck it on his head.

    So now he was wearing a water jug. Great. He stormed into the room, looking stupid and utterly torn. "Don't you see!?" the marshmallow bunny barked at the pegasus. "Don't you see what you've done!? I can't do it! I can't say I'm sorry!" he turned to Discord, then the others. "That I'm sorry for gloating about kicking your butt and I'm sorry for insulting you, too. The last time I came here was because I was beaten up by a robot. Why do you have to humiliate me like this in front of all these people? What did i ever do to you...?" Bun-Bun couldn't wipe his face so he turned away from them with his hands attempting to cover up his face. "...You dumb, pale horse. Don't look at me! None of you look at me!" Apologize, she said. It'd be easy, she said...

    While Discord and Bun-Bun tossed an insult or two back and forth, Fluttershy tried to defend Nurse Floyd. The nurse sent Fluttershy a grateful look while Dr. SALLI was, no lie, a little confused about how it could possibly be Fluttershy's fault that they'd misplaced Discord. "Your fault? How?"

    "Well, she stopped me in the middle of the hall to ask if she could come along for her friend. The orderlies were wheeling him into the room, those jerks didn't even wait up for me! By the time we were done talking they had disappeared! So I checked the doors for his room and uh...found...your's." Again he gave the robotic doctor a large, almost cheesy grin, hoping the explanation would assuage her. Hopefully it would reassure Discord too, poor guy seemed confused. "I promise, we found you really quickly."

    Dr. SALLI pursed her lips before heaving a slight sigh. "Just be more careful next time, alright Nurse Floyd?" When she received a nod from him, she turned to Discord, who was thankfully alright with the situation at hand. Well, as alright as you can be when an obnoxious rabbit is gloating in your face. She gave the chimera a nod of understanding, though suddenly the pony came into the picture again. Dr. SALLI was content to just continue ignoring the marshmallow rabbit and Nurse Floyd would have been more than glad to escort him out. They would have never even thought to try and get him to apologize. And here was this gentle, soft-spoken pony, talking to the bunny and trying to get him to apologize! With a strangely serious look in her eyes at that.

    While Discord tried to talk her out of it, the Doctor and the Nurse had their optics and eyes glued on the marshmallow creature to see what he would do. They did not expect a...coughing fit? Panic attack? The two stared wide-eyed until the rabbit suddenly disappeared down the hall. "...What the fu-" Oh, nope! He was back! With a water cooler jug on his head? What happened next played out like some sort of mental breakdown as the bunny insisted that he couldn't apologize to Discord, or to Dr. SALLI. The Doctor crossed her arms at his...sort of apology but also denial of an apology? "Hm." He'd been incredibly rude, not to mention almost racist. Or...robotist? Whatever the robot equivalent was. It wasn't a fun experience. "If you want some sort of medication I can give you some." Her voice was a little flat, no longer angry but still not particularly happy.

    Nurse Floyd was amazed, however, and he turned to Fluttershy curiously, leaning towards her so only she and probably Discord could hear. "Dang, he did all that just because you looked at him and told him to say he's sorry?"

    When Fluttershy had asked Bun-Bun to applogize, she really didn't have the slightest clue of what would come next. She just wanted Discord and him to reconcile with each other in hopes that a second spar would not take place; not break down any pony's feelings. It started with coughing, like he was struggling to say the words, but he was literally choking on them. Before he scurried away, Fluttershy took note of his face, and put a hoof to her mouth.

    Poor bunny, she thought. She never did like seeing animals sad. Even if Bun-Bun technically wasn't an animal, a sad animal always sank her heart almost every time. The next thing she knew, he had a water jug on his head and she hoped to herself that Discord had enough manners not to laugh at him. Lest he have an unwanted scolding coming his way. When somepony pours their heart out to you, it wasn't something to be lightly tampered with. Fluttershy took the apology either way.

    "See?" Fluttershy cooed. "Was that so bad? No reason to go and put a water jug on your head. Would you like any help?" Her eyes quickly drifted over to the nurse, who was in awe. The pegasus wasn't all too sure on how to explain this to him, but... "Sometimes the hardest thing for someone to say is that they're sorry," Fluttershy responded thoughtfully. Frankly, nothing is ever solved with violence. With almost every disagreement she had been a part of, the best solution always was to talk things out rather than hurt someone and let things go out of hoof. That reminded her of something.

    Fluttershy backed over to Discord, giving his paw a light nudge. "Now it's your turn," she instructed. No, she didn't care if he was hurt or not. He was just as bad as Bun-Bun was. However, Discord knows better. The pony firmly believed that Discord did not require a water jug on his head to apologize as well.

    Discord grimaced inwardly at Bun-Bun’s response to his sneered comment. What if he really wasn’t exaggerating…? Discord shook that thought away. He’d have to ask Fluttershy later to be sure. If it was somehow true, then he knew that he would never live this down. Oh yes, he was so going to get a rematch later on when he had regained more of his power… There was no doubt about that.

    Bun-Bun’s reaction to Fluttershy’s request was definitely not what he expected. Really? The rabbit was actually going to listen to her without a fuss? Well, apparently not entirely without a fuss. Before he knew it, the rabbit had dashed from the room. Discord’s outward expression was slightly dumbfounded and largely curious. ”Wow… How did you-“

    And he’s back again. With a jug on his head. Discord snorted loudly and bit his lower lip, tears springing to his eyes as he tried to choke back what would have been a laughing fit if he wasn’t in deep enough as it was. As Bun-Bun spoke again, however, Discord managed to regain his cracked composure, his expression morphing more into one of genuine empathy. (What?! You try admitting that you were wrong all along and had no idea what you were missing to the very pony that tried to get you to see it in the first place! See how your pride fares!) He nearly missed what the nurse had said, but caught enough to piece everything together. She must’ve used her so-called “stare” on him… Wait, that actually works? Discord blinked in surprise, smiling briefly before wiping his face clean. It was the small victories, you know? Like being immune to a certain somepony’s disapproving eyeballs, apparently unlike a certain marshmallow somebunny… Taking another look at Bun-Bun however, he decided to keep that victory to himself. Discord had been humiliated, and Bun-Bun was already plenty humiliated in return by the jug that made his head seem even bigger than usual. (In the literal sense, of course.)

    Fluttershy wrote:"Now it's your turn,"

    Discord jumped. What? His turn?! Bun-Bun was the instigator, not him! Well, yeah, he supposed the hot cocoa illusion had been a little harsh, but he wouldn’t have had to do it if he hadn’t been called a freak by someone who clearly didn’t own a mirror. It would’ve been one thing if it was a pony or one of those seemingly common human things who had said it, but a marshmallow bunny? Calling him a freak? What was up with that?! The nerve! And even stranger, now that he thought about it, Fluttershy had accepted that insincere word vomit as an apology? He doubted that that would generally be considered acceptable, especially if they were in a daycare as they seemed to be in that moment.

    Discord gave Fluttershy a look and a groan that clearly asked if she was serious before he rolled his eyes. There was no way she would change her mind about this, she was far too kind and neutral for that… May as well get it over with.

    Discord sighed. ”Fine. Bun-Bun, I’m sorry I reacted poorly to being called a freak and that it escalated after that,” he groaned, managing to keep his eyes on the rabbit. They dodged off to the side away from the others in the room before he hesitantly continued. ”I underestimated you… You’re a lot more powerful than you look.”

    Yeah, that's right. Discord did underestimate him and he was more powerful than he looked. There's something to wear on the shoulders. The rest of the body, though...

    Bun-Bun declined any help, attempting to yank and pull the water jug off on his own, but to no avail. "No, I don't need any pills, and no, I don't need any help. I'm going home," he moaned, dragging himself over to the door. His posture straightened briefly. "Let us never speak of this again... Except for the part where I kicked your butt. That was the good part." With a paw on the arch, he hunched for a moment, trying to ravage through his scattering thoughts on what to say.

    "Honestly, a rematch would have been better than this. Torture would have been better than this," he muttered on. "At least she made you apologize as well." You know, a rematch didn't sound that bad... Discord was a huge party pooper when it came to fighting. It annoyed him a little just by how simplistic it was to defeat him. Might as well just take candy from a baby (to teach them good morals, of course). Bun-Bun wanted to spin back around and address the draconequus, but he refrained knowing that that pony's knowledge of that would be a huge disadvantage. And not to mention how stupid he looked, and that he was in a hospital.

    "Oh, and doc," he addressed the staff, throwing one small glance at them. "You might want to check his eyes. Looks like he's got brain damage." Whether he was taunting  or genuinely concerned or not, it wasn't made clear and it probably wouldn't be as he had just walked out.

    The pony offered to help him get the jug off, though Bun-Bun refused both pills and help. Dr. SALLI busied herself with her clipboard, flipping through the papers. Though her optics did peek over the clipboard at the bunny when he mentioned going home. "When you're done with that jug, I'd like it back." How much of a mess did he make grabbing that thing? Someone would have to put a new jug in there for the poor, hardworking workers who needed a drink.

    Nurse Floyd considered the pony's thoughtful response. A hand cupped his chin and he stared off into space, mind reeling with the implications. Oh yes, if only such introspective viewpoints could be utilized more often, so many arguments and fights could be settled without violence. "Shoot, its not that hard to say sorry. He didn't have to shove his head inside a jug. That's just overkill." ...Or not. Though the bunny did seem rather upset, the Nurse was completely willing to just assume that he was mentally unstable and that was the reason why. The pony convinced her friend to apologize as well, and for the moment the medical staff lingered there awkwardly. Unsure of what to do, now. Their job was presumably done, right? Yes, nothing else for them to do.

    Bun-Bun wrote:"Oh, and doc, you might want to check his eyes. Looks like he's got brain damage."

    The reactions were instantaneous. Nurse Floyd made a face, filled with confusion but also some doubt. Dr. SALLI was a lot more proactive, shooting the nurse a look before grabbing out a flashlight and appearing at Discord's side in an instant. "You didn't check for brain damage?" She chided as she shined the light in Discord's eyes, testing the pupil movement.

    "I figured the nanobots would have taken care of that if he had any! And sure, his eyes are off, but look at him! He's got two different sets of wings too, but that doesn't mean any of them are broken!" He was all around a very mismatched guy. Certainly mismatched eyes were normal?

    "How is your vision? Is everything alright? Anything blurry or fuzzy?" The Doctor did not take the possibility of brain injury lightly.

    Fluttershy smiled softly to the draconequus. He barely complained and he admitted to his own faults. This made the pony rather proud. She knew he'd handle things much better than Bun-Bun. Seriously, how could anypony compare giving an apology to torture?

    "Of course I did," Fluttershy interjected. "Discord is just as much at fault here as you are. The only difference is that he was the one who got hurt in all of this. I hope you both realize that fighting is not a way to solve your problems. It only makes things worse. If you both have a problem, you need to be honest about how you feel and talk it out." She would know. Sometimes, Fluttershy couldn't help but think of that pony she beat up over a cab carriage. How she might have hurt his feelings. How now that she was here in Portal Breach, she never went to approach him and tell him that she was sorry, and now she regretted it deeply. What a monster she was, back then…

    Bun-Bun eventually left, leaving a remark about Discord's eyes. Fluttershy glanced at them, but she thought they were completely normal. Yes, one pupil was bigger than the other, but she never thought he could have brain damage . Regardless, the pegasus walked over, returning to Discord's bedside. "Um... his eyes are normally like that?" she spoke cautiously. "He's had that long before Bun-Bun attacked him." Hopefully, she was right...?

    Bun-Bun wrote:"Let us never speak of this again... Except for the part where I kicked your butt. That was the good part."

    Discord stuck his forked tongue out at the bunny at that. Nope, he was most certainly never going to live this down. As for torture being a satisfactory substitute for an apology, Discord almost agreed. He supposed it depended on the kind of torture, though…

    And finally, Bun-Bun seemed to be leaving. Not before a few last words, however. Discord sneered and rolled his eyes, clearly interpreting it as an insult. The doctors, however, took it very literally. Before he knew it, that robotic doctor was on him, shining a light in his eyes. He recoiled from the light as it made him see spots, waving his paw at the doctor in an attempt to shoo her away. ”What? I can see just fine!” he snapped in irritation, blinking his eyes in an attempt to chase away those annoying spots. ”One pupil is always bigger than the other. They’re supposed to be like that,” he said flatly, unknowingly talking over Fluttershy. ”I don’t remember what happened right before I was knocked out, but that’s the extent of any ‘damage.’” He crossed his arms with a huff. It was bad enough that he had been hammered and repeatedly insulted by a marshmallow, but now he had to deal with the side-effects of being on the losing side. Today had been awful and now he just wanted to go home.

    His rather negative thoughts were interrupted as he suddenly thought back to something that had been previously said. ”What are nanobots?” he asked, eyeing the nurse and doctor curiously. He had heard of and met robots, but he wasn’t quite sure what nanobots were or why they would be relevant to the conversation.

    Discord wrote:”What? I can see just fine! One pupil is always bigger than the other. They’re supposed to be like that,”

    The doctor pulled her hand and flashlight away from Discord's face with a sheepish look. "Really...?" What a strange creature...she folded her hands behind her back and made a noise like she was clearing her throat, even though she possessed no throat. "I am sorry...if you had brain damage it would have been best to treat it fast, before any long lasting damage could set in." Out of the corner of her optic, Nurse SALLI spotted a smug look on the nurse's face. "...What?"

    The young man showed her every tooth in his mouth. "Told you so. You have so little faith in me!"

    "Your demeanor does not always inspire much confidence in you."

    "I am who I am, Dr. Salli!"

    "Yes, for better or for worse..." The robot almost grumbled, before she turned to the patient and his friend once more. Well, the male chimera had no more damage on his person, so if he was ready he could leave. Unless his little friend needed medical attention too, though she likely would have said so by now. Though it seems he still had some questions. Ah yes, the nanobots.

    "I injected you with them to heal up your battle damage." Floyd piped up.

    "Yes, its an easy and fast way to fix most injuries." Dr. SALLI grabbed the bottle of metallic, red fluid and held it so the two could see. "The nanobots are in here, and one injected into the body they seek out damaged tissue. They work to replicate it and heal up the damage tissue. Most of the time they leave little evidence that there was ever any injury, though sometimes I have seen some scars linger...particularly if the wound is very deep. You shouldn't have anything to worry about, however. Any extra nanobots in your body are passed onwards and out the way most body byproducts are."

    Fluttershy watched as Discord swatted away the light being shined in his eyes, relieved that her assumption was correct. He then inquired about the nanobots, but the pegasus didn't really have much to say there. She sat on the floor while the doctor explained, positioning herself within reach of her recovering friend for comfort.

    "If they didn't inject you with that, you probably wouldn't have woken up until much later," Fluttershy added. Now that she thought of it, Discord would also be in a lot more pain and he didn't look to be in much pain at all. Though he must feel horribly humiliated. "I told you it was a bad idea," she sighed. "Do you feel all right to go home?" He never did answer if he felt better or not.

    Discord blinked in confusion. So they were a medicine of some kind? He leaned closer to the vial of liquid as the doctor held it up, examining it through squinted eyes. So there were creatures in there? Really teeny tiny itty bitty creatures, apparently. Ones that were able to heal wounds completely. Discord’s fascination showed on his face as the doctor finished her explanation. ”Interesting,” he remarked. ”I can’t say that I’ve ever seen or even heard of anything like that… I’ll have to add it to the list.” He glanced at Fluttershy, nodding to acknowledge her statement. She was right; those nanobots were quite efficient.

    ”Yes, yes, you told me so,” Discord grumbled as Fluttershy continued. How was he supposed to know that after everything he wouldn’t be able to handle a bunny?! That thing was puny! He’d taken on monsters twenty times that rabbit’s size in just the last month alone! Even with this freaky place draining his powers, he was still Discord for Celestia’s sake! He sighed aloud and glanced back over at Fluttershy, having looked away from her to pout for a moment. ”Yes, I’m ready to go home.”

    Discord stood up and regretted doing so almost instantly as a sharp ache suddenly staked him in the temple, accompanied with some mild dizziness. He grimaced and supported himself using the bed for a moment as the pain receded gradually. ”Stood up too fast,” he explained, knowing that the others would almost certainly worry. He let go of the bed and stood fully before turning to the doctor and nurse. ”Thank you for caring for me. If you’ll permit me to leave…?” He offered them each his paw to shake. (He might’ve bowed slightly instead, but after his nearly unsuccessful attempt at standing he wasn’t willing to risk it.) Hopefully they wouldn’t decide to keep him longer after that little show his head had decided to make of standing… He discreetly crossed his talons behind his back.
