Chapter 2: Barth
Bartholomew Varega was sitting in his dorm with Aria Jager, both somewhat bored.
“I wish there was a tournament right now.” Aria grumbled.
Barth looked up, “There’s one in a few months, don’t stress on it now Aria, sheesh.”
He went over and sat beside his partner who immediately put her head against his shoulder.
“I know, but with Finn and Michael around there’s no more alone time as much anymore. They’re always around. That Finn’s obnoxious as well… How did he make it here?” Aria complained.
Barth grinned, “About that, I pulled in a few favours to convince Michael to go out and train with Finn for a few hours, then to hospitalize him as well, we’re free for around 5 hours today.”
Aria grinned and straddled Barth`s legs and leaned forward a bit.
“Soo, what do you want to do now that we’re alone?” She crooned.
Barth smiled, happy to play along. “I don’t know Aria, what do you want to do?”
Aria smiled and kissed him on the cheek.
“You know what would be nice Barth? A nice long….”
“FUCK!” Came the sudden interruption.
They both jumped slightly and turned around to see Finn Silato, a fellow teammate strewn on the floor with a very ashamed and embarrassed Michael Korry behind him.
“Erm.. sorry….” Michael said blushing profusely at seeing his teammates in a very awkward position with each other and a Finn on the floor. To make up for his mistake, he jabbed Finn hard on the back with his weapon.
“OW!” Finn yelled from his position on the floor.
“You idiot, I told you to walk by!” Michael yelled at him.
“Not my fault you wanted to listen in Mikey.” Finn muttered from the floor.
“Don’t call me Mikey! And no I did not!” Michael protested colouring.
Finn muttered something about Mikey never reaching first base and Michael jabbed him in the ribs again.
“GET OUT! BOTH OF YOU! I TRY TO GET SOME ALONE TIME AND YOU FUCKING SPOIL IT FOR ME! LEAVE! NOW!” Barth roared.
“Yes boss.” Finn said with a salute from the ground and Michael grabbed him and started dragging him across the ground much to Finn’s protests.
“By the way, Barth, I got the information you wanted, seems like someone's planning something after all, but I can’t go for fear of detection.”
Barth nodded knowingly and ignored the questioning look Aria gave him.
Michael shut the door and they both listened to the sounds of Finn being dragged across the hall and Aria kissed Barth softly on the lips.
“Now where were we…” She smiled.
