I'm still being kicked around by my ISP, but as they're the only game in town right now, I'm stuck with them. Doesn't excuse this long a delay, though. I guess all that is just me, the over-melodramatic dragon. Short bit, but more next month. ^___^ (see? i'm not making impossible promises; a month is doable)

Chibi Problem 30

We started right in on the explaining and teaching. Point of fact, I did most of the explaining; BabyDoll took care of most of the training. It was all just stuff he did around the house anyway, and he took great pride in showing Berber and his boys what to do to help Ruthie out.

Of course, they needed someone to practice on. That was where I came in. From the time I got home from work until I went to bed, I was waited on, paw and foot. The trowas loved the idea of tossing soda cans from the refrigerator shelf to a net waiting below. The quatres took to making coffee as if they’d been born to it. The lone Heero homed in on the appliances in the kitchen and was soon twisting, turning and punching the various controls like a regular little geek.

Collectively, they learned how to handle dishes and glassware, flatware and knives. Nothing got broken and no one lost any blood. I was quite impressed. BabyDoll preened like a little major general.

He used the time to also begin on those members of the gundam who had shown an interest in helping. Not all of them did, of course. Some of the heeros and wufeis were passively appalled at ‘domesticity’ and most of the trowas were too shy to participate, but none of them seemed to mind if their mates or offspring joined in.

As time went on, some of the side-liners kicked in a little help here and there. Sort of an ‘I’m not saying I want to be civilized; I’m just being polite and helpful here.’

We didn’t keep any sort of rigid schedule; if they felt like joining, fine; if not that was fine too. Helping is supposed to be fun; something they could do because they felt like it, or because they were attached to the person they were helping. I wasn’t aiming to force anyone into doing anything. Wouldn’t work in the first place, and would only leave a bad taste all around.

Somewhere in there, Mike noticed the sudden influx of strange Chibis. His cautious interest made me smirk; Gunny was becoming a Chibi-person whether he realized it or not. Shawn was getting ever-closer to having his own Chibi.

“So, all those –“ He indicated the platoon of Ruthie’s guys. “– Are the visitors.”

Ruthie is going to be absolutely shocked. Maybe she will finally understand just how incredibly intelligent these little guys really are.

I don't know... She really wants to believe that her Chibis can do miracles. But she might be surprised that she believes it.
