The beautiful blonde woman sat cross legged on the grass in the garden, her hair tumbling down her back to the grass. She looked very peaceful and zen as she sat there, her eyes closed and her hands resting on her knees. She wore a simple linen dress that did nothing to hide her beauty, as well as a baby sling strapped so the infant was nestled against her chest.
Rolf leered at her from the edge of the grass. “She’s gorgeous,” he said. “I want her.”
Beside him, Lal nodded, but looked nervous. “What are you, mad? There are battle sylphs all over the Valley.”
“Not right here or right now,” Rolf said with a belch and a scratch of his gut. “Besides, there’s nothing wrong with appreciating a beautiful lady. I’ll just go an’ make my acquaintance with her.”
“But she’s got a baby with her,” Lal protested. “She’s got to have someone already.”
“Nah, Gabralina’s single. Everyone knows that. She’s babysittin’.” Rolf smoothed back his greasy hair and hitched up his pants. “Watch an’ learn, boy. I’ll have her eatin’ out of my hand.”
Dubious, Lal watched as his friend sauntered over towards Gabralina. She blinked up at him as his shadow fell across her.
“Can I help you?”
“Hey, gorgeous,” he leered. “How about we go an’ get naked so we can get to know each other better?”
Gabralina recoiled. “I...uh, no, thank you.”
His grin widened. His teeth were hideous. “Come on, sweetheart, spend some time with a real man.”
He bent over her and the sling strapped to her chest exploded. Miniature black battler tentacles flailed out of every gap in the fabric, battering at the man, while hate as strong as a bit of dandelion fluff washed over him.
Howling, Rolf ran for his life, Lal chasing after him and wailing. The sound of a raspberry followed them both.
Gabralina stared after them and then looked down at the baby battle sylph. “Aww, Razz, you’re so clever,” she cooed. “Such a good baby, yes you are! Yes you are!”
Razz blinked up at his babysitter sleepily, blew a faint raspberry in reply, and jammed his tentacles into his mouth. Sucking on them and happy, he went back to sleep, ready as always for battle.
