dialogue: “Give it to me.” “Only if you promise not to kill anyone with it.”
“SIR!” Aja bellowed. “STOP THAT!” She jumped again and hissed at Aric.
He glared down at her. “It’s against regulation, Rookie.”
“DAMMIT YETTER, YOU KNOW THAT THESE DAGGERS ARE NOT TO BE USED FOR COOKING! THEY’RE COMBAT USE ONLY!”
“THERE’S NO CLEAN KNIFE! DO YOUR DAMN DISHES!”
Aric continued holding the knife out of her reach. “I DO!”
“GIVE. IT. TO. ME.” She lept with each word and finally got her hand around his arm.
He was going to be forced to release it. “Fine. Just promise not to kill anyone with it.” Aric realized his mistake. It was one of her stealth daggers, obviously she was going to kill people with it.
“Yes, Sir, no killing with this knife, Sir.” Aja smiled smugly up at him. “Only for cutting sandwiches, Sir.”
“You know what I meant.”
