We Live a Dying Dream

Order

Key Four: Order:

"Hello?" Tykki asked.

"Road, what can I head you with this evening?" the doctor asked over the phone.

"I would like to place a special order tonight."

"Okay, anything in particular?"

"You know that little pet I was eyeing the other day?"

"You can't mean…"

Road nodded. "Yes!"

"You know it is the only one that I have, right?"

"Yes."

"It took me ten years to track this thing down and it didn't go into the jar without a fight."

"Is it still alive?"

"Yes."

"Go check."

Tykki sighed. "Fine."

Road waited as she heard tapping on the glass. "Well?"

"It's still alive."

"How long have you had it jarred up?"

"Twenty years."

Road whistled. "Wow! It's been alive all of those years?"

"Yeah."

"Is it so potent?"

"I believe so."

"So will you let me have it?"

"That will depend."

Road raised an eyebrow. "On what?"

"What do you plan to do with."

"You know what I plan to do with."

"Did I even need to ask?"

"So will you give it to me or not?"

Tykki sighed. "You sure you want this?"

"Yes!"

"Okay, okay. You can have it."

Road squealed over the phone. "How much will it cost?"

"I'll think about a price. Anything else you want to order today?"

"No."

"Alright, I'll have it ready for you in three days' time."

Road frowned. "Three days?"

"Hey, I've got patients to deal with here. Plus, Jasdevi needed more Red Devil's Breath to keep Paradise running."

His niece rolled her eyes. "They are lucky they have been successful with running Paradise. As far as I can see, it could disappear tomorrow and I wouldn't care."

"Hey, our kind isn't complaining. So, three days good enough for you? I could cancel the order and end this call right now."

"No, no. I'll pick it up in three days."

"Good call."

Road frowned. "Yeah, yeah."

"Nice doing business with you. Now if you have to excuse me, I have my patients to tend to."

"Okay, goodbye."

"Bye." When they hung up, Road smirked as she ran through her plans for Allen in her head.
