Have Gun – Will Travel is an American Western series that was produced and originally broadcast by CBS on both television and radio from 1957 through 1963. The television version of the series starring Richard Boone was rated number three or number four in the Nielsen ratings every year of its first four seasons, and it is one of the few shows in television history to spawn a successful radio version. That radio series starring John Dehner debuted November 23, 1958, more than a year after the premiere of its televised counterpart. Production. Have Gun – Will Travel was created by Sam Rolfe and Herb Meadow and produced by Frank Pierson, Don Ingalls, Robert Sparks, and Julian Claman. Of the 225 episodes of the television series, 24 were written by Gene Roddenberry. Other major contributors included Bruce Geller, Harry Julian Fink, Don Brinkley, and Irving Wallace. Andrew V. McLaglen directed 101 episodes, and 28 were directed by series star Richard Boone. Premise. This series follows the adventures of a man calling himself "Paladin" (played by Richard Boone on television and voiced by John Dehner on radio), taking his name from that of the foremost knights in Charlemagne's court. He is a gentleman investigator/gunfighter who travels around the Old West working as a mercenary for people who hire him to solve their problems. Although Paladin charges steep fees to clients who can afford to hire him, typically $1000 per job, he provides his services for free to poor people who need his help. Like many Westerns, the television show was set in a time vaguely indicated to be some years after the American Civil War. The radio show announced the year of the story that followed in the opening of each episode. The season 5 television episode, "A Drop of Blood", gives the specific date of July 3, 1879. In the fourteenth and seventeenth ("Lazarus", March 6 and 7, 1875) episodes of season 5, it is 1875. Title. The title is a variation on a cliche used in personal advertisements in newspapers like The Times, indicating that the advertiser is ready for anything. It has been used this way from the early twentieth century. A trope common in theatrical advertising at the time was "Have tux, will travel" (originally from comedian Bob Hope in 1954), and CBS has claimed this was the specific inspiration for the writer Herb Meadow. The television show popularized the phrase in the 1950s and 1960s, and many variations have been used as titles for other works, including the 1958 science fiction novel Have Space Suit—Will Travel by Robert A. Heinlein.

Coming in at #2 is the Sin Compromiso Paladin de Saka by Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust. If you have followed Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust and the career of its owner/blender Steve Saka, you know that doing offshoot blends based on existing lines is nothing new. In the case of the Paladin de Saka, it is an extension of the Sin Compromiso line. With this blend, Saka's goal was to give Sin Compromiso a little more robustness and be smooth at the same time. In terms of what the name means, Sin Compromiso means “Without Compromise”, and it has served as a slogan for Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust. A “paladin” refers to a champion. It was a name traced back to the days of Charlemagne and refers to the members of his court. Paladin de Saka is one of the most premium offerings in the Dunbarton portfolio as it's priced at $28.75 per cigar. Production for Paladin de Saka comes from the Joya de Nicaragua factory.  Paladin de Saka is highlighted by its Mexican San Andres “Cultivo Tonto” wrapper over Hybridized Ecuadorian Habano “thin ligero” binder, and a combination of Nicaraguan and Pennsylvania Seedleaf for the filler. The Paladin de Saka uses analogous tobaccos found in the core Sin Compromiso line with the one addition being the Pennsylvania Seedleaf. The Paladin de Saka comes in a 7 x 52 box-pressed format. It features a firmer box press than the core Sin Compromiso line. According to Saka, the firmer box press was created as a result of the incorporation of the Pennsylvania Seedleaf into the Paladin de Saka blend. Saka stated the Pennsylvania Seedleaf can be on the bitter side, so the firmer box press was a way to offset the bitterness. The Paladin de Saka delivered a combination of coffee, natural tobacco, cedar, earth, dark chocolate, and pepper. The cigar delivered a medium-strength, medium-bodied smoking experience.  The tweaks and adjustments that Saka made to the original Sin Compromiso really paid off. This took the Paladin de Saka to the next level.  While this cigar carries a hefty price tag, this cigar certainly lives up to the ultra-premium experience. This is the second cigar from Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust to land on the 2022 Countdown, and the second Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust cigar to land in the top ten. Dunbarton has landed at least one cigar on the Countdown for eight consecutive years. The Paladin de Saka is the highest-placed cigar on the Countdown for the company to date. Meanwhile, Nicaragua keeps a hold on its dominance on the 2022 Countdown. Of the 29 cigars that have been unveiled, 20 have come from that Central American country.

Los Miserables Autor: Víctor Hugo Cuarta Parte: El idilio de la calle de Plumet y La epopeya de la calle de Saint-Denis Libro segundo Éponine Cap II : Formación embrionaria de los crímenes en la incubación de las cárceles. El éxito de Javert en el caserón Gorbeau había parecido completo, pero no lo había sido. Lo primero, y ésa era su principal preocupación, Javert no había apresado al prisionero. El asesinado que se evade es más sospechoso que el asesino; y es probable que aquel personaje, captura tan preciada para los bandidos, no fuera una presa menos apetecible para la autoridad. Además, a Javert se le había escapado Montparnasse. Había que esperar otra ocasión para echarle el guante a aquel «petimetre del demonio». Efectivamente, Montparnasse se encontró con Éponine, que estaba montando guardia bajo los árboles del bulevar, y se la llevó, pues prefería ser Némorin con la hija que Schinderhannes con el padre. En buena hora se le ocurrió. Estaba en libertad. En cuanto a Éponine, Javert la «volvió a pescar». Flaco consuelo. Éponine fue a reunirse con Azelma a Les Madelonnettes. Y por último, en el trayecto desde el caserón Gorbeau a La Force perdieron a uno de los principales detenidos, Claquesous. No sabían cómo había ocurrido; los agentes y los guardias «no entendían nada»; se había convertido en vapor, se había escurrido de las esposas de los pulgares, se había colado entre las grietas del carruaje, el coche de punto estaba rajado y él se había escapado; nadie sabía qué decir, salvo que, al llegar a la cárcel, Claquesous ya no estaba. Aquello era cosa de magia o de la policía. ¿Claquesous se había derretido en las tinieblas como un copo de nieve en el agua? ¿Se había dado una connivencia oculta de los agentes? ¿Pertenecía aquel hombre al doble enigma del desorden y del orden? ¿Era acaso concéntrico a la infracción y a la represión? ¿Tenía aquella esfinge las patas delanteras en el crimen y las patas traseras en la autoridad? Javert no admitía tales combinaciones y se habría encrespado ante concesiones de esa laya; pero en su grupo había otros inspectores, más puestos que él quizá, por muy subordinados suyos que fueran, en los secretos de la prefectura; y Claquesous era un bandido de tal calibre que podía ser un agente estupendo. Tener tan íntimas relaciones de escamoteo con la oscuridad es algo excelente para el bandidaje y admirable para la policía. Existen pillos así, de dos filos. Fuere como fuere, no volvieron a dar con el extraviado Claquesous. Javert mostró más irritación que extrañeza. En cuanto a Marius, «ese pánfilo de abogado que seguramente había tenido miedo» y cuyo nombre se le había olvidado a Javert, éste no tenía gran empeño puesto en él. Por lo demás, a un abogado siempre se lo puede encontrar. Aunque ¿era siquiera abogado? Habían empezado a instruir el proceso. Al juez de instrucción le pareció oportuno no incomunicar a uno de los hombres de la banda de El culo del gato con la esperanza de que se fuera de la lengua. Ese hombre era Brujon, el melenudo de la calle de Le Petit-Banquier. Lo dejaron salir al patio Charlemagne y los vigilantes no le quitaron ojo.

Los Miserables Autor: Víctor Hugo Cuarta Parte: El idilio de la calle de Plumet y La epopeya de la calle de Saint-Denis Libro sexto Gavroche Cap III : Las peripecias de la evasión. Esto es lo que había sucedido esa misma noche en La Force. Aunque Thénardier estaba incomunicado, Babet, Brujon, Gueulemer y Thénardier se habían puesto de acuerdo para evadirse. Babet lo había hecho por su cuenta ese mismo día, como hemos sabido por lo que le contó Montparnasse a Gavroche. Montparnasse tenía que ayudarlos desde fuera. A Brujon, que se había pasado un mes en una celda de castigo, le había dado tiempo, primero, a trenzar una cuerda y, después, a madurar un plan. Hace tiempo, esos lugares severos donde la disciplina de la cárcel deja al condenado sin más recursos que los propios, los componían cuatro paredes de piedra, un techo de piedra, un suelo de baldosas, un catre de tijera, un ventano con rejas y una puerta forrada de hierro, y eso se llamaba calabozo; pero se impuso la creencia de que el calabozo era excesivamente espantoso; ahora se compone de una puerta de hierro, un ventano con rejas, un catre de tijera, un suelo de baldosas, un techo de piedra, cuatro paredes de piedra y se llama celda de castigo. Entra algo de luz a eso de las doce de la mañana. El inconveniente de esas celdas que, como vemos, no son calabozos, es que les deja tiempo para pensar a personas a las que habría que tener trabajando. Así que Brujon había pensado y había salido de la celda de castigo con una cuerda. Como en el patio Charlemagne lo daban por muy peligroso, lo pusieron en el Edificio Nuevo. Lo primero con que se encontró en el Edificio Nuevo fue con Gueulemer; lo segundo fue con un clavo; Gueulemer, es decir, el crimen; un clavo, es decir, la libertad. Brujon, de que quien ya es hora de que nos hagamos una idea completa, era, aunque aparentase ser de constitución delicada y languidez hondamente premeditada, un individuo educado, inteligente y ladrón, de mirada acariciadora y sonrisa atroz. La mirada era fruto de la voluntad, y la sonrisa, del carácter. Sus primeros estudios del arte que practicaba se centraron en los tejados; contribuyó a que avanzase mucho la industria de esos que arrancan el plomo, dejando pelados los tejados, y desguazan los canalones recurriendo al procedimiento que se conoce por el mondongo. Lo que hacía aún más favorable aquel momento para llevar a cabo un intento de evasión era que los plomeros y retejadores estaban precisamente por entonces reparando y remendando parte de las tejas de la cárcel. El patio Saint-Bernard no estaba ya aislado del todo del patio Charlemagne y del patio Saint-Louis. Había por las alturas andamios y escaleras; dicho con otras palabras, puentes y escaleras que daban a la libertad. El Edificio Nuevo, que era lo más lleno de grietas y más decrépito que darse pueda, era el punto débil de la cárcel. El salitre se había comido tanto las paredes que no había quedado más remedio que forrar con un revestimiento de madera las bóvedas de los dormitorios, porque se desprendían de ellas piedras que les caían encima a los presos cuando estaban acostados. Pese a ser tan vetusto, se cometía el error de encerrar en el Edificio Nuevo a los acusados más conflictivos, de alojar en él a «las acusaciones de peso», como se dice en la cárcel.

HAPPY NEW YEAR! 2023!!!In this episode, Kelle and Julz wish you a Happy and Healthy New Year!Kelle and Julz welcome back Charlemagne Tremont and she is here today to talk to us about Cacao Ceremonies.Charlemagne is a wealth of knowledge of the origin and uses of Cacao and the sacred ceremonies that go along with it.IxCacao is the name of the Goddess of the Cacao Tree, She is often spoken of as Mama Cacao.Zochiquetzal is the name of the Goddess who is the one who is the Alchemist in the magickal process of turning the cacao beans into the cacao beverages.The most important part of creating Cacao Ceremony is sourcing the best raw, unprocessed Cacao, this is truly ceremonial Cacao, not the processed chocolate that most are familiar with. Many different grades are available, and, unfortunately, not all are created equally, or are what they say they are. I sourced my Ceremonial Cacao from my teachers, it comes from small farms in Guatemala.The finest quality Cacao is bitter, very dark, traditionally served mostly unsweetened. In Meso-America, where much of the finest Cacao is naturally found, the basic beverage is made with water, finely ground Cacao, a little salt, and chilis, which activates the photochemicals in the beans and aids in absorption. Some spices might be added, commonly cinnamon, vanilla, occasionally some honey. If almonds were available, they might be chopped finely and added. This is not the sweetened, milky hot chocolate that we are familiar with - that was developed by Europeans who disliked the bitter ceremonial beverage and the rituals surrounding it. - which would have been unfamiliar and possibly frightening and strange to non indigenous people.Here are some lovely Cacao lcaros (Medicine Songs) to be sung and/or listened to while preparing and drinking your Ceremonial Cacao:Cacao Medicine Chants & Invocations for Healing - 3 of them woven together and beautifully sung my Maile Moon:https://youtu.be/EKiyW-mdkfcI often play this one on repeat, I find it so peaceful and greatly connected with Mama Cacao.This one is is more upbeat and modern:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e_fdq2BV0q8Email: ct@pearlandpomegranate.comWebsite: pearlandpomegranate.comReferences:-For more information about Kelle Sparta or Kelle Sparta Enterprises:--https://kellesparta.com/learn-more-about-kelle/-Driveabout (Full Version) https://youtu.be/biD21gy6qZk--Written by: Kelle Sparta--Performed by: Kelle Sparta and Daniel Singer--Produced by: Daniel Singer-Keywords:Spirit Sherpa, Kelle Sparta, Transformational Shaman, Spirit Doctor, spiritual, spirituality, shaman, shamanism, ceremonies, cacao, goddess, goddess ceremony, chocolate, mythologyLicensing and Credits:“Spirit Sherpa” is the sole property of Kelle Sparta Enterprises and is distributed under a Creative Commons: BY-NC-ND 4.0 license.

Have Gun – Will Travel is an American Western series that was produced and originally broadcast by CBS on both television and radio from 1957 through 1963. The television version of the series starring Richard Boone was rated number three or number four in the Nielsen ratings every year of its first four seasons, and it is one of the few shows in television history to spawn a successful radio version. That radio series starring John Dehner debuted November 23, 1958, more than a year after the premiere of its televised counterpart. Production. Have Gun – Will Travel was created by Sam Rolfe and Herb Meadow and produced by Frank Pierson, Don Ingalls, Robert Sparks, and Julian Claman. Of the 225 episodes of the television series, 24 were written by Gene Roddenberry. Other major contributors included Bruce Geller, Harry Julian Fink, Don Brinkley, and Irving Wallace. Andrew V. McLaglen directed 101 episodes, and 28 were directed by series star Richard Boone. Premise. This series follows the adventures of a man calling himself "Paladin" (played by Richard Boone on television and voiced by John Dehner on radio), taking his name from that of the foremost knights in Charlemagne's court. He is a gentleman investigator/gunfighter who travels around the Old West working as a mercenary for people who hire him to solve their problems. Although Paladin charges steep fees to clients who can afford to hire him, typically $1000 per job, he provides his services for free to poor people who need his help. Like many Westerns, the television show was set in a time vaguely indicated to be some years after the American Civil War. The radio show announced the year of the story that followed in the opening of each episode. The season 5 television episode, "A Drop of Blood", gives the specific date of July 3, 1879. In the fourteenth and seventeenth ("Lazarus", March 6 and 7, 1875) episodes of season 5, it is 1875. Title. The title is a variation on a cliche used in personal advertisements in newspapers like The Times, indicating that the advertiser is ready for anything. It has been used this way from the early twentieth century. A trope common in theatrical advertising at the time was "Have tux, will travel" (originally from comedian Bob Hope in 1954), and CBS has claimed this was the specific inspiration for the writer Herb Meadow. The television show popularized the phrase in the 1950s and 1960s, and many variations have been used as titles for other works, including the 1958 science fiction novel Have Space Suit—Will Travel by Robert A. Heinlein.

It was the opening shot of what the Wall Street Journal's (WSJ) editorial board fears may become a protracted climate trade war between the European Union (EU) and the United States. In a notorious departure from standard EU lip service to free trade, late last week French President Emmanuel Macron urged fellow European leaders anew to match the Biden administration's round of green subsidies pork-barrelled into the Inflation Reduction Act. Unhelpfully acronymized as IRA, that legislative package was signed into law in August. As part of it, the US Treasury will be offering tax breaks and other market-rigging subsidies to companies manufacturing electric vehicles in the US, which Macron fears will unfairly disadvantage their European competitors. Macron claims there should be greater joint efforts to accelerate the green transition. In this latest episode with The Economist's Charlemagne columnist, Stanley Pignal, and POLITICO's Barbara Moens, we inquire whether the EU was really as committed to free trade as its liberal cheerleaders claim in the first place, and whether this latest round of rhetorical animus may spark a real trade war between transatlantic allies.

Bad things, worse things and making the best of what you got.By FinalStand. Listen and subscribe to the podcast at Steamy Stories.Suddenly knowing you are about to die rarely does anyone any good.(Thursday)I slipped out of bed, preparing for the trip to the shower when I stepped out and saw Timothy and this black guy I didn’t know doing a soft porn version of me and Rhada. Timothy was sleepily amused. His date was anything but.“I thought you weren’t seeing anyone?” he said in a thick Caribbean accent.“That’s my roommate,” Timothy snorted. “My straight roommate.” What can I say, I’m really good looking.“I am, Dude,” I promised. “I have a girl in my bed and everything. Hell, I didn’t even know what the Village Voice was until last night.”Timothy laughed. His date was still pissed. Timothy gave his date a final kiss the guy barely accepted. I made for the shower. When I came out, Timothy was in his bathrobe sitting on the sofa.“Whoops,” I shrugged. This was the first date I’d seen him on since moving in.“Better to know they are the jealous kind before I invest too much time,” Timothy sighed. “He is beautiful and great in bed. He’s also in total denial and now jealous. I won’t be returning his calls.” I sat down on the sofa next to Timothy and gave him a man-bump.“Sorry, Bro. Better luck next time,” I consoled him.“How many ladies was it last night?” Timothy muttered. He knew I was ‘ambitious’.“Five - wait, what is the age of consent in this state again?” I grinned.“Ah, fuck,” Timothy shook his head. “If the cops coming busting down the door…”“Funny you would say that,” I chuckled. “Another one is a cop.”“Bro, you have a death wish. Cops do background checks and carry guns,” he laughed.“Her mom is a cop too,” I informed him. He shook his head some more.“Death wish,” he mumbled then headed for the shower. Comparatively, the ride to work was bland and uneventful. I was clever enough to change before setting foot in the Executive Services section.I arrived with two minutes to spare and I was still the last person to arrive. Katrina was at her desk, Desiree was on the sofa and the security team leader from yesterday and one of her aides were sitting in the chairs in front of Katrina.“Come stand beside me,” Katrina said. I walked over with the added benefit that no one gave any notice of my movements.“Cáel, how did you feel about the exercise yesterday morning?” Katrina began.“First off, I don’t know these ladies’ names,” I said. Katrina looked at them. Clearly the two were one step above resenting every breath I took.“Elsa,” the leader stated.“Constanza,” her aide replied. I bowed my head to Elsa.“Elsa, I apologize for my rash words to you, my attitude and any disgrace I put upon either Katrina and/or Desiree,” I pled. “I have no excuse.” That seemed to have screwed the two new ladies up. Desiree snorted. Katrina had no reaction. I could hear Elsa grind her teeth.“Come between me and a charge again and I will kill you,” Elsa glared.“Come after a charge of mine I’ll make you earn it,” I snapped back.“Only Katrina is keeping you alive at this moment,” Elsa stood up as did Constanza.“Really?” I sneered. “Katrina, please fire me. I need to take out the trash.”“Cáel kneel,” Katrina ordered so I knelt.“This was a waste of time,” Elsa grumbled.“Elsa, you scored Cáel at a 92%,” Katrina offered.“92 out a 1000,” I muttered.“No, you idiot,” Desiree sighed. “It was stated as a percentage. Try and act your age.” Katrina coughed in surprised amusement. I thought Desiree being so verbose this early in the morning was the cause.“What did he get wrong?” Katrina mused. “It is in your report. I want you to tell him.”“He ignored his initial instinct to retire to the dwelling, he failed to issue orders to his charges, he missed his partner going down, and he reloaded before his clip was empty,” she detailed.“How many current members of the security detail have scored higher on their initial trial?” Katrina persisted. There was a long pause.“One - me,” Elsa answered. I was impressed - with myself. I had the inbred instincts to get myself killed for people who hated me. I snickered.“You find something amusing?” Katrina looked at me.“In retrospect, I should have realized it was a test. Come on, I don’t have a gun license, no serious firearms training and the vast majority of Havenstone personnel hate my guts,” I explained my humor. “There was no realistic way I would be assigned to guard kids.”“I’m so used to being treated like shit here, I missed the obvious,” I concluded. Another pause.“Why did you break cover to tackle Loraine? You abandoned Aya and Europa,” Elsa asked.“I wasn’t really thinking about it,” I answered. “I saw her in the open, in danger, and I had the other two crouched down next to the car. I leapt. Sorry, it was nothing more complicated than that.”“What did you think when you saw Desiree lying on the ground?” Elsa prodded.“Crap - ah,” I tried to recall. “Nothing really. I noticed the one woman to the North still standing. I wanted to kill her then roll over and shoot the two to the South.”“They would have killed you,” Constanza informed me.“As opposed to what? I mistakenly thought I had bullets,” I shrugged. “While I had any chance I had to keep fighting.”“You could have surrendered?” Elsa studied me.“You wouldn’t have. Why should I?” I responded.“You are not me in so many relevant ways,” Elsa stated. Desiree gave an infinitesimal groan.“Don’t worry about it,” I nodded. “Despite your failings, I’m still willing to accept you as an equal.”“That is a deadly insult,” Elsa seethed.“Oh, look,” I came back with a predatory grin, “you’re angry. Kind of the way I am having done a bang up job only to have you belittle my performance despite having no training, or warning. Believing you are better than me because you have tits makes as much sense as me thinking that having a dick makes you the weaker sex. Its bigotry and stupid. Worse, it is a tactical flaw.”“Tell me,” Katrina rose up majestically, “that his last three sentences make no sense. Please, lie to me and say the man is wrong.” Elsa didn’t respond. “I asked you to test his instincts and you gave him the second hardest test we have and that’s only because I vetoed the hardest. If you honestly think he cannot help us, make that pledge now.” Another pause.“He hit everything he aimed at,” Elsa suddenly volunteered. “It was all close range. He didn’t panic and he never left mission. If he had tits, I would have been impressed. I am still opposed to him having a weapon. His attitude is also grating.”“I have to work with him,” Desiree complained.“If I express to Hayden the possibility that those men who pass Security testing be allowed to be trained with weapons, will you support me?” Katrina requested.“Never!” Elsa exclaimed.“Thank you for your opinion and honesty, Elsa,” Katrina nodded. “I will see you later.”The two security experts left the room.“Stand,” Katrina sighed. I stood. “You gave it your best shot, I know. Do not trouble yourself with doubts, Cáel Nyilas. No attitude you could have taken would have altered her thinking in the slightest.”“Huh?” I mumbled. Katrina looked at me. My grin was infectious. “Sorry, did you say something? I was visually evaluating their potential as they were leaving the room.” Translation: I was scoping out their muscular asses as they sauntered out the door. Paula and Daphne walked in.“Cáel, do not talk about your activity yesterday morning, or of the events this morning with anyone,” Katrina ordered. I nodded. I made for my desk but Katrina stopped me. In the same manner, she requested that Desiree stay. Three minutes before seven, the last new hire arrived, Violet.“Everyone except Desiree, Daphne and Cáel leave the room. I will summon you back in a few minutes,” Katrina commanded. Confused and curious, the other new hires left the room. As the door shut, she had Daphne secure the lock while she drew forth a folded piece of paper which she unfolded and handed to me. Wow, I had never thought I’d see my death sentence yet here it was.“Read it,” she demanded. Yes, I was boned.“These are the words of Katrina, daughter of Sedona, granddaughter of Andromeda of the House of Epona, First Bearer of the Sun Spear through the Halls of Night and Death…” followed by a series of awards, accolades and honors I could barely fathom the importance of.I read it in the language it was written as this was clearly Katrina’s intent. Desiree scooted to the edge of the sofa cushion. Daphne’s eyes were wide, exhibiting the spectrum of excitement, fear and amazement. She spoke first.“You got the 'uh’ wrong,” Daphne corrected me. “It is 'Andromadu’ in our tongue, not 'Andromeda’.”“Well this makes a few things make a lot more sense,” Desiree mumbled.“Katrina,” Daphne gulped. “You didn’t teach him, did you?”“No. It was Dr. Kimberly Geisler of Bolingbrook College who taught him - so they could read erotic poetry to one another,” Katrina revealed. “He was never her student - in a classroom.”“Cáel not only speaks four current languages (French, Spanish, and Russian), he also is fluent in ten dead ones,” Katrina related. “Dr. Geisler and I had a long chat last night. Once she opened up, she was quite informative and full of praise for our new hire.”Daphne blathered something while looking at me expectantly.When I didn’t respond she became disappointed. Then it hit me.“You are translating from the Coptic, aren’t you?” I questioned.“Yes,” I had her intense attention once more.“What you meant to say was 'may the blessed Isis bring understanding with this greeting’,” I translated for her into New Kingdom Egyptian.“Once you get to Coptic you have so much Macedonian/Ptolemaic influence it is far beyond New Kingdom Egyptian,” I added.“Oh…that makes sense,” Daphne nodded. “I - uh - thank you.”“Well, if I live I can give you lessons,” I smirked.“About that,” Desiree stood up. “Why is he still alive?” What Katrina said surprised me.“I’ve waited twelve years to see you smile, Desiree,” she gave her underling a look full of wisdom and compassion.“Sympathy is nice,” Desiree countered. “We must be hard to survive.”“Desiree, I wanted you here because you have always opposed my initiative to save our people. Unlike most of us, you have lived fully in their world. Because of our companionship and your knowledge, I have always valued your council. Has nothing changed?” Katrina kept her voice precise and level. Desiree stood up, clearly furious, and took a step toward me.“You make no sense!” she shouted, pointing at me. A dozen comebacks welled up in my mind yet were discarded as inappropriate.“I apologize for causing you pain, Desiree,” I met her gaze. Desiree gave a raw, guttural scream of agony and rage. She wasn’t bawling, still tears rolled down her cheeks.“I don’t know why you chose me to hear this, Katrina. Our houses are not aligned. Still, if I get a vote, I say we find a way to make this work for us - our people and this directive,” Daphne spoke up.“Your bravery, wonderful attitude and ability to approach problems with an open mind is why I chose you, Daphne,” Katrina explained.“How long have you known?” Desiree muttered.“Tuesday night…” Katrina began.“Not you, Katrina…my apology. I meant…him,” Desiree interrupted.“About twenty seconds into the opening prayer at the board meeting,” I tried to look inoffensive.“He heard the Prayer of Ancestors?” Desiree wailed. “You haven’t even taught me that yet!”“Yes, he did. At the time, I had no idea that he knew our ancestral tongue. On the next recruitment drive we need to find a clever way to figure out if they do speak any dead languages so we can avoid this near-catastrophe,” Katrina said.“It is only the three - four of us who know?” Daphne asked. I was almost discounted.“I believe Dr. Geisler suspects something is amiss,” Katrina replied. “I impressed upon her the need for discretion, plus not to contact Cáel for a week. I need the time to position us properly for when this issue comes out.”“They’ll kill him,” Daphne gasped. Wow, Daphne actually cared.“We cannot save him,” Katrina explained. “It is not within our power, or mandate. What we must do is figure out a way to make Cáel acceptable to our people.”“Good plan. I like this plan. Why don’t you let me go to the armory so I can do some last minute Christmas shopping?” I chuckled. “I’ll be right back.”“If you make it to Christmas,” Desiree sighed, “I will consent to a date with you.”“Desiree, I think that qualifies as assisted suicide,” I teased. “If we make it to Christmas Eve, I’ll let you push me off the Empire State Building to spare us both that agony.”“That’s not nice,” Katrina chided me. “Desiree is an excellent woman.”“Oh, I agree. My worry is that after one night of passion with her no other woman will compare,” I looked worried. Desiree punched me in the upper arm. I grabbed one of her tits. I’d gone down this road with Buffy and I wasn’t going to relent on my sexual stupidity now.“You are grabbing her breast,” Daphne gasped.“Ow,” I flinched then evaded her block for another squeeze of breast, “she’s hitting me…Ow…so since she’s enjoying herself…Ow…so I’m doing the same…Ow.”“Grow up,” Desiree growled but her eyes were shining with amusement.“But if I remain a child I’ll eventually evoke your mothering instinct,” I snickered.“Cáel, you do realize that your life is hanging by a thread, don’t you?” Daphne gawked.“Daphne, you would be surprised how many chicks you can pick up with the line 'I laugh at death’ when you really mean it,” I smiled.“Does that actually work?” Daphne was dubious.“Daphne, I was romantically involved with four different women yesterday, not counting Aya, Europa, Loraine and Desiree,” I enlightened her. I only had sex with three of them. That was only because I am trying to have something approaching a normal relationship with the fourth.“"You screwed Aya’s teacher, didn’t you?” Desiree glared.“Ummm - I was applying positive incentives to induce Ms. Reichmann into taking special care of Aya,” I elaborated. “Did I do wrong?”“Cáel, what is going to happen to Aya if Ms. Reichmann becomes upset with you?” Katrina posed.“School is only going to last two more weeks,” I assured her. “I can keep things going until then. I mean, eventually she’ll hate me - all women do, but I can take care of things for two weeks.” The women around me were curious about the start of that last statement. “I’ve had one female friend that lasted more than three months my entire life.”“Why is that?” Daphne asked. “I like you. You are good-looking, smart and funny if a bit too brutally honest.”“Believe me, juggling eight different romantic entanglements is hellish. Eventually some of them figure out what I’m doing with the others. Then it is Tartarus time,” I sighed.“What would you do if you discovered that along with having sex with you, I was also having separate liaisons with Violet and Buffy?” I postulated.“I would be okay with it. You’re a male - sex is your primary function,” Daphne related. I had the feeling she’d been waiting to get that last bit off her well-endowed chest.“What would you do if I was also having a relationship with Rhada?” I tossed out there.“I’d kill you,” Daphne’s certainty pierced me. Good to know.“Cáel, are you having sexual relations with Rhada?” Katrina prodded.“I’d rather pull out my shoelaces and go hang myself in your bathroom than discuss that, Katrina,” I stated as I looked down in shame.“Don’t worry about it,” Katrina assured me.“What!” Desiree snarled. “He’s having sex with Rhada and you want to ignore it?”“Desiree, what do you want me to do? Acknowledge an affair that No ONE wants to acknowledge,” Katrina pointed out. “It isn’t as if he is unaware of the delicacy of the situation, either, or can do anything else to make him more dead.”“Desiree, let the rest know they can come in as you leave,” Katrina concluded the matter. Desiree swept out like an atomic monsoon (I wasn’t sure what one would look like; Desiree was otherwise indescribable). Somehow the other new hires figured out that Desiree’s primal scowl of outrage was their invitation to return to Katrina’s office.The meeting began the way it always did. Stunningly, Desiree gave me yet another horrific job review. The mockery aimed my way was dampened by the reality that I was involved with something Katrina didn’t want me to talk about. Getting Desiree to talk was hopeless so I could see the others ready to pounce on Daphne when we headed out to fulfill our daily cue.I had Desiree and school duty again. This time, I didn’t have a gun. I did get mugged - on the landing. Aya wrapped her arms around me. Thankfully she squealed “Cáel!” not 'Daddy’. Desiree was impassive. Aya’s two sisters were happy, yet more controlled in their enthusiasm.“I’m glad you showed up,” Europa poked me. “Pint-sized was freaking out during breakfast.”“I must admit I’m very happy to see you three this morning,” I looking over the back seat and addressed Europa. “You might want to tell your sister her make-up is very tastefully done.” Loraine attempted a sultry look.“Wait, are you not talking to me again?” Loraine blinked.“I’m talking to you, Loraine,” I winked. “I was teasing.”“Am I still an old hag?” Europa bantered.“Not sure, Europa. Aya is soaking up all the pretty,” I teased. “It is so hard to tell.” Fortunately, Europa was a good sport and Aya loved the praise. Less good was…“Girls, don’t look over your shoulders,” I ordered calmly. “Desiree, a maroon van three cars back. They keep turning with us.”“Test,” Desiree informed me. Saying 'it was a test’ was too wordy for her. I didn’t bother to ask her if I’d done well, or not.“Please, please, please,” I begged Desiree. “Can I have a sunroof and a rocket launcher? Please.”“Grow up,” she grumbled.“Yes, Mom,” I groaned.“You are the best,” snickered Europa. “I wish I could go on dates. Loraine does too…with you,” she got out before Loraine popped her.“Do I get to be in the room when Loraine has that conversation with her Mother?” I mused.“Are you going to ask my Mother if you can take me out?” Loraine beamed.Desiree snorted. I was in for it now.“Maybe Cáel can ask Momma out on a date and become our real Daddy,” Aya suggested happily. I was going camping with this family. It would solve all my worries about my burial service.“Momma is too old for Cáel,” Loraine countered. Oh, joy.“I’m not the best 'first date’ material,” I evaded. “Ah…what is your Momma’s name?”“Caitlyn,” Europa provided. “Does that mean you will ask her out?”“Not necessarily - see, I have the annoying habit of being amorously attracted to every woman I meet, so I’m not very romantically reliable,” I explained.“Does that mean you are sexually proficient?” Loraine inquired eagerly.“Does that mean you are a slut?” Europa teased.“Does that mean you’ll sleep with my aunts, too?” Aya wondered.“It means you are an idiot,” Desiree muttered under her breath.“I’d like to think so,” to Loraine, “I hate labels,” to Europa, “I have no idea,” to Aya, “and thanks, Des,” to finish things off.“Maybe we could go on a test date this weekend,” Loraine suggested.“Why?” I grinned. “Are trying to see what I would look like 'test’ dead?”“No!” Aya blurted out. “They want you to be Daddies.” Aya had screwed up, most likely relaying with her limited understanding what she’d overheard. Two female family members in the same house, yet no other children. Buffy and Helena…and Desiree being brought back in despite the shame to her prestige aka genetic purity.“Cáel, she was making stuff up again,” Loraine attempted damage control.“No, I didn’t,” Aya protested. “I want Cáel to live.”“That can be answered with two questions, Loraine,” I locked eyes with the sixteen year old.“Cáel - do not do this,” Desiree ordered.“Sorry, Desiree; I think this falls in the 'I need to know’ category,” I defied her. “Loraine, do malformed female babies get tossed off the cliff alongside all the male babies.” Loraine paled and gulped. Europa looked equally worried. Aya was afraid - afraid of my reaction.“I apologize, Cáel. This is not something I can talk about,” Loraine murmured.“This is the point where you decide if I’m a human being, or some servitor creature,” I studied her.“I can’t,” Loraine repeated. I nodded then faced forward. There was silence for a while.“Cáel, are you upset with us?” Europa inquired nervously. I looked back at her.“My emotional status is of no relevance to my assignment, Europa,” I replied dead-pan. “Will there be anything else?”“Why are you acting this way?” Loraine groaned.“I am a Havenstone employee, Loraine,” I answered.“I have no instructions to behave in any other fashion. I am sure if I have done anything inappropriate, you may report me to my boss, Desiree, or my department head, Katrina, so that I may be suitably disciplined,” I informed her.“Please don’t talk like that,” Aya sniffled.“Aya, if I have upset you, please request another Havenstone employee on your next service order,” I said. Aya began bawling. God, she was emotionally volatile.“Desiree, make him stop,” Loraine pleaded.“Make him stop what? You don’t want a man, you want a cuddly toy with 101 programmed warm, fuzzy responses,” Desiree responded. “Toys don’t go above, beyond, and even against their instructions to do a better job. You are getting exactly what your Mother has requested. You have a Havenstone employee. You can’t afford the man who befriended you.”That was more than Desiree coming to my defense. She was trying to teach the children the harsh reality of life. Amazons, due to their conduct toward men, had to think of them as lesser beings. The sickness was more than tossing male and unfit female babies to their death, it was mothers handing their children over to be murdered.“I apologize, Cáel,” Loraine said softly.“Okay,” I replied crisply. More silence.“Are you still angry with us?” Europa asked.“I can still do my job, if that is what you are worried about,” I told her. Aya wailed. I was starting to feel that Aya had mental issues that went beyond wanting a father.“Yes,” Loraine finally answered my question. I remained quiet. “Isn’t that what you wanted to know?”“No, Loraine; I wanted you to treat me as if I had some worth in your eyes,” I sighed.“I love you,” Aya pleaded. I struggled and struggled and only one other societal model made sense.I turned half-way around to look at the group once more.“When is the trial?” I probed. No answer. “At some point as you are growing up, you ladies have to pass some sort of basic test. When is it?” My model was male yet still fit - Sparta.“How do you know any of this?” Loraine wondered.“I was actually hired because I’m bright,” I stated in all seriousness, “along with good looks and being in excellent physical condition.”“Twelve,” Europe filled me in. I didn’t need to say anything. The two older sisters shot worried looks Aya’s way.“Your Aunt’s are sterile, correct?” now Europa and Loraine flashed quick glances between them.“Yes,” Loraine muttered. “How did you…?”“That’s not important. What is important is that I will do my best to stick with Aya as long as I can,” I informed them. I tapped Aya’s nose. “Stop that crying. You are better than that.”“Sorry,” she sniffed.“No, you 'apologize’ to show regret. 'Sorry’ is for a flaw,” I reminded Aya. “Don’t go around school telling your classmates I’m a spy either.”“What do I tell them?” Aya gulped.“Tell them I am not a spy. Insist that I’m not a spy. Loudly declare to everybody who asks that I am not a spy,” I grinned. “Do you understand?” Aya didn’t, but Europa did.“Aya, by insisting that Cáel isn’t a spy no matter what, everyone will believe he’s a spy. It is the art of misinformation,” Europa hugged her younger sibling.“By saying he’s not a spy, everyone will think he is a spy?” Aya appeared confused.“Yes,” Loraine assured her.“Okay,” Aya accepted the illusion. “You are still going to marry Momma, right?”“I never said that,” I protested. Aya smiled sweetly. I frowned. She became absolutely cherubic.“I make no promises,” I turned forward.“Go for it,” Desiree whispered. “Caitlyn is only one of Katrina’s sisters.” I make a point of trying not to cry in public. I continued to be depressed on how I failed to make crucial connections. Whose family, besides her own, would allow me this close? Damn, I couldn’t keep playing catch-up.“Katrina is your aunt?” I inquired quietly.“She’s my sister,” Desiree stated. Watching Loraine, Europa and Aya acting together helped that make sense. Katrina felt responsible for Desiree in the same way Loraine looked out for Aya. Katrina’s Mom had abandoned her when she fled with the man she loved.When an aunt brought her back, Katrina had stood by the sister she’d never seen before because that was what sisters do. You saw a lot of that in Celtic societies. Epona was a Celtic name - a Goddess in fact.“If you and Mom go on a date, I can come along as a chaperone,” Loraine offered.“I’m surprised you even know what a chaperone is,” I grinned back.“Sure we do,” Europa giggled. “That’s the one who holds the leash.” Loraine blushed furiously.“Don’t say that,” she chided Europa.“Sis, I think he knows something is going on beyond Aya’s Daddy issues,” Europa countered.“I deny everything,” I proclaimed.“He is as stupid as he looks,” Desiree volunteered. By the surprised looks of Europa and Loraine, this was as frivolous as they’d ever seen Desiree act.“That’s not true,” Aya protested. “Cáel is wonderful and he’s going to make Momma very happy and be our Daddy.”“Yay,” I said with muted enthusiasm. “I can envision our first date now.”“Would you mate with my mother?” Europa teased.“That’s not what I’m envisioning. I’m thinking about what my heart looks like, torn from my chest and held up to my dying gaze.”“No,” Aya moaped.“We are joking, Aya,” Europa hugged her sister. “We’d never let Momma take a knife with her on a date with Cáel.”“Yes, because fingernails hurt more,” I scoffed. Europa hit me playfully.“Do you have a girlfriend?” Loraine inquired.“Yes. I met her on a job with Desiree - sort of - and we went out, ate a light dinner and walked and talked for over an hour afterwards. She’s real nice,” I related.“Did you have sex?” Loraine was a bit distressed.“Nope. I save the sex for all my other women in my life. No one at Havenstone,” I somewhat lied. “I’d like to build a substantial rapport with this woman. Hopefully I won’t screw it up, like I do every other relationship.”“Are you joking?” Europa prodded.“No, not in the least. I like women. Women appear to like me,” I shrugged.“How long does it take you to romance a woman?” Loraine questioned.“Quickest - three minutes,” I answered. In fact, we were heading for that wonderful woman right now.“How many women at Havenstone?” Loraine was becoming disillusioned.“None. Oh God, I am not going to mix work with pleasure,” I swore.“80 days, Bitch,” Desiree promised.“80 days?” Europe inquired.“In 80 days I cease being an intern, so it will no longer be against the rules for a woman at Havenstone to have a sexual relationship with me,” I gulped.“What are you going to do then?” Loraine asked.“Hang from the ceiling like a Spider Monkey and watch them try to knock me down with sticks,” I grinned. Europa snickered at the imagery.“Honestly Loraine, there can be no 'us’ until your eighteenth birthday. You are too young,” I explained.“Are you afraid of our Mother?” Loraine was oddly happier.“Yes, but fear hasn’t stopped me before,” I assured her. “I am devoid of reason when presented with a pretty face.”“Wait,” Loraine smiled. “Why isn’t something going on between us right now?”“Desiree put a block of C-4 in my underwear. If I misbehave, I’ll be half the man I used to be,” I warned them.“Desiree, please don’t blow his weenie off,” Aya requested. Snorts and laughter echoed throughout the car.“Oh, look,” Desiree sighed in relief. “We are here.” We’d made it to school again.“Cáel, would you come with me to class,” Aya begged.“Cáel, for the love of the Goddess, can you try and make it back in a reasonable time frame,” Desiree scowled. Europa and Loraine studied me inquisitively.“Cáel, can you come to my homeroom as well?” Loraine teased.“Me, too,” Europa poked me.“Give me your homerooms and I’ll try to stop by,” I pledged. When we got to Aya’s homeroom, I could see that Ulyssa Reichmann was exceedingly excited that I’d returned.“Aya, I need to talk to your Daddy for a few minutes. We’ll be back soon,” Ulyssa announced then proceeded to drag me back to the conference room. She finished a round of pulse-pounding passionate intercourse with…“Would you like to go out on a date?” Ulyssa 'suggested’.“I’d really like that,” I responded because, you know, it wasn’t like my social calendar wasn’t confusing enough already. “Let’s exchange digits and give me a call when you get off work today. Lunch times suck for me. Oh, I should warn you, in my first week here, they’ve given me the true meaning of working 24/7. I’ve been called in at 3 a.m. and worked until 10:30 at night - be warned.”“I’m good at all hours,” she purred. “My roommate and I stay up late all the time.” Please be a guy, please be a guy.“Is he a nice guy?” I prayed.“No, Silly,” she kissed me. “My roommate is my older sister.” Please be a crone, please be a crone. “Here is a picture of her.” Of course…she was a stone-cold fox.“What’s her fiancé like?” I sobbed internally.“She just got over a messy break up. She’s been very depressed,” Ulyssa informed me. That’s what I needed. It wasn’t like a gorgeous roommate in need of comfort had every ruined things for me before…except those other five times when things exploded all over the place. “If you have one, maybe your roommate can double date with us.”“His name is Timothy,” I forced a grin. Asking Timothy to double date with me so I wouldn’t end up banging my date’s roommate/sister was way out of bounds. I’d ask, proving I really was a sorry human being, but I was feeling bad about it. That had to count for something. We walked closely, side by side, back to her room. I played with Aya.One bully hadn’t gotten the message yesterday and called Aya a freak in my presence. I asked him why he thought he could get away with it. He said his dad was a hotshot lawyer. With a toothy glimmer, I told him that would look nice on his father’s tombstone. After all, I didn’t hurt kids. I hurt adults; grown-ups like Mom and Dad - the hotshot lawyer.Aya polished that off by insisting that I wasn’t a spy. Absolutely, positively not. What did I do for a living? Aya couldn’t talk about it because good people might get killed - good girl. With that settled, I went to Loraine’s homeroom. Holy Cow! She had the whole 'Plush Mature Teacher’ thing going on, including the spectacles on a chain and hair in a bun.Her name was Rachel Simpson, 42 and never married. In the classroom, she was aloof, condescending and chilly. Two minutes later her mouth was moaning 'no, no, no’ while her body was responding with 'more, more, more’. Had she not pulled me into the custodial closet, I might have been worried about taking liberties.I’d have to catch Europa’s homeroom tomorrow. As it was.“Sixty-five minutes…God, you are messed up,” Desiree commented as we pulled away.“What do you tell the security guard when you are just sitting here, waiting?” I asked.“I tell the guard you are inside fucking your way through the female staff,” Desiree stated.“And they buy it?” I was aghast.“She’s seen you. She believes it. I hate you,” Desiree answered.“I apologize?” I looked sheepish.“Here is her number on the off-chance you are ever bored,” Desiree handed me a torn piece of paper. “You are a totally contemptible pig.”“I think you are a Saint for putting up with me,” I smiled.“By all means, please jump out of the car while we are in motion then run through traffic, preferably in front of buses and dump trucks,” Desiree requested.“Is this your way of suggesting I meet some nice nurses at the closest hospital,” I reposed.“Die.” We were non-communicative for a few minutes.“Desiree, I’m tired,” I sighed. “Please stop the car.”“What…” she started to snap then she saw my face. I was ashen. Reality was catching up. Desiree changed lanes and pulled up to the curb. I got out.“I’ll walk into work,” was all I said before shutting the door. Children and sex aside, I was confronting evil and I couldn’t ignore that anymore. My working theory was that, after a century of genetic manipulation, the Amazons were dying out. Sterile women, deformed babies, pre-teen girls with fragile psyches and men bred for pliability and lack of aggression.The science of genetics dated back to 1866. That would mean roughly seven human generations. In turn, that suggested they already had a fatally poisoned male breeding population and their imperfect application of science made it worse, not better. The dilemma became how to introduce a strong male gene strain into the Amazon breeding population.What this meant for the now useless breeding males was yet another horror to contemplate. My future involved walking the nearly impossible line between the 'masculine’ traits they were looking for without the aggression the Amazon’s responded negatively to. I knew I was too aggressive and my survival was mainly through the efforts of Katrina.I had made progress with a few women and they’d come to accept - no, tolerate - my irreverence. I was still wrestling with that whole mess when I walked into the atrium of Havenstone. I flashed my ID. They security personnel told me to wait, then took me to a side room and relieved me of my badge and phone.Two security detail ladies replaced the two security guard types then Constanza showed up.“Come with us,” she ordered.“No,” I replied. “I work for Desiree right now.” They didn’t say something nice like 'do this or else’. No, they went straight for the stun guns.My perception was overloaded with pain and I believed I was screaming, but wasn’t sure. Before I knew it, I had been rolled over onto my stomach and my hands cuffed behind my back.“What have I…?” I got out before they stunned me again.“Shut up,” Constanza snapped.“Bitch!” I snarled. They stunned me again. I could no longer stand without assistance. The second I could form words, “Whores!” came tumbling out. They stunned me again. The points they gained for cruelty they lost to their lack of forward thinking. I really tried to not repeat my insults, but honestly, my mind was too numb by the end for me to be sure.They slammed me into a chair in front of Elsa’s desk. Opening my eyes hurt. My tongue was so bloody and swollen, talking was no longer an option. The echoes of my own screams of pain muffled what Elsa was saying. They jolted me and I spasmed right out of the chair. They picked me up and Elsa - or somebody - said something.About the time I could make sense of the world again, Elsa clued in to what I had been doing.“How many times did you stun him?” she barked.“He kept insulting us,” Constanza answered. “We made him shut his filthy mouth.”“Did it occur to you he was doing that on purpose?” Elsa seethed.I giggled. Actually, I made some indescribable noise as I’d bitten my tongue and cheeks repeatedly and the amount of blood in my mouth was getting troublesome. Elsa pushed her chair back and came around her desk. I surprised them all by hurling my body into her. My knees buckled and I fell down before I even left the chair. Someone caught me before I hit the ground.Elsa’s face took over my view. She grabbed my jaw in her right hand and steadied my head.“You did that on purpose,” she stated. “It won’t do you any good. No one knows you are here and you aren’t leaving until I have what I want to know.” I mumbled something. “What?”“Never surrender,” I worked out, blood drooling passed my lips.“Fine. Cáel, do you believe I am an honest woman?” Elsa inquired. I had to think about that.“Ugh - yeah,” I mumbled.“Good. I’m going to give you a chance because you did behave courageously yesterday,” she congratulated me. “Tell me what I want to know, or things will become very painful for you.”“O-okay,” I grunted.“What did you and Katrina discuss over dinner last night?” Elsa asked. I had to think. My next words were crucial.“I - ah - do you prefer silk sheets, or cotton?” I whispered.“I understand,” Elsa patted my cheek. She went back to her desk, pulled a dull silver box out then extracted a loaded syringe. “This is going to hurt a lot.” I didn’t struggle. What was the point?“Man, the penalty for sexual harassment in this corporation is harsher than I thought,” I gasped.They expedited matters by having Constanza brandish her knife and cut my left coat and shirt sleeves off. Those were brand new too. She expertly tapped for the vein, the needle went in and this cool sensation worked its way up my arm. The promised pain didn’t come, so I decided to play against the play. You steeled yourself against pain. It was the rational reaction.I began humming, keeping my breathing level and relaxed. I chose Bruno Mars’ Grenade as my first musical selection. Something about loving a woman destroying a man appealed to this situation. Had I possessed my facilities, I would have realized I had lost them. Elsa kept asking me questions.I confessed she had sexy eyes - she really did, she had one of top ten asses I’d seen all week and I was dying to see her in her underwear. I had no clue why this drug wasn’t working on me. It was a little weird when Elsa transformed into Katrina. She asked me how I was. I asked her if she’d let me breastfeed if we got married. That was my last memory for a while.I rolled, saw a carpeted floor coming at me and threw out my arms and legs in time not to face-plant. Then I vomited. Here was the pain that Elsa had promised. My gastro-intestinal tract was on fire, the pressure in my head was about explode and if I had a nerve ending that wasn’t in agony, it wasn’t for a lack of trying.I managed to roll over farther so I didn’t fall into my own vomit. The desert Sun blazing down on me made me cry. My eyelids refused to close…no, they were closed. My eyes were simply that sensitive.“See,” Elsa said, “he’s alive.”“Thank you for that crisp and unsolicited professional medical opinion,” Katrina purred. “When I wish you to leave this room, I will let you know.” I wished they would stop screaming. The urge to vomit overcame me. All I got for my troubles was a series of violent dry-heaves. “Don’t, Tessa,” Katrina spoke, “his trachea and esophagus are inflamed. He might choke on the water.”This time I was able to push up so that I was on my haunches. I didn’t feel any better, but I was struggling to project more pride than I could from lying on the floor. There was no conception of time passing. All I knew was that I could make out six people in the room when I motioned for the water. Sure enough, it was Tessa Carmichael giving me a glass.“Small sips,” Katrina advised me. I did as suggested. My physical abilities were starting to revert to normal.“Ah, Katrina,” I mumbled, “did we have a…'if we were married’ moment?” Before she could respond, “Wait, have I missed picking up the kids?” I blurted out.“I’m still here, Dummy,” Desiree sneered.“Thank goodness,” I rasped. “I’m seeing double and I was terrified there were three of you.”“He’s fine,” Desiree addressed the room, “and you tried to get Katrina to breast-feed you, too.”“Ugh…that’s unfortunate,” I looked down. “Do I still have a job? If so, can I go home and change. I seem to have torn my coat…and my shirt.”“No rest for you yet, Cáel,” Katrina stated. “Now, Elsa, please hand me your firearm.” My vision was finally doing me some good and that wasn’t good. Katrina had an automatic pistol aimed at Elsa’s head. Desiree had a pistol in her right hand and was standing by the door. Tessa was by Katrina’s desk, her poise indicating displeasure.Elsa deftly drew her pistol, turned it barrel first and handed it to Katrina. She immediately backed toward me, keeping her pistol leveled at Elsa.“Cáel, are your hands and eyesight steady?” she inquired. I held out my hands. They were sore, yet level.“Yes, Katrina,” I answered. She handed me Elsa’s pistol.“Kill her - kill Elsa,” Katrina directed. Elsa’s eyes widened, but she held firm. Constanza was less controlled.“You can’t do this,” Constanza gasped. “He’s a male.”“Are you volunteering to take Elsa’s place?” Katrina offered. Constanza’s mouth gaiped then shut.“Cáel?” Katrina prodded me.“Do we even need to go over why this is wrong?” I groaned. My head hurt. “She didn’t try to kill me, Katrina. All she wanted to know was something that was none of her business.”“Okay, so she and her thugs stunned me to Hell and back and I really want to jack-slap her, but I’m not going to shoot her. She was just doing her job - a bit misguided perhaps. Had she wanted me dead, I’d be dead. If she was going against you, Katrina, she would have taken me off site,” I reasoned.“Besides, unlike those two, I don’t attack defenseless people,” I remarked. “I’m in Executive Services. I’ll leave the sleazy stuff to your pathetic skanks in Security. They seem to get off on that kind of thing.” I struggled to my feet, swayed a bit then staggered over to Elsa. “Here you go, Bitch. Knock yourself out. I’ve got work to do.” I handed her the gun, grip first.Elsa took it, stood up and pressed the barrel to my chest.“I should kill you for your words alone,” Elsa glared. I smiled.“Go ahead. You may want to note that while I screened Katrina, I left Desiree a clear shot. Go ahead and commit suicide. I’m sure you, me and Constanza will fill a grave nicely,” I smirked.I looked over to Constanza. “You don’t think Katrina can let you live if Desiree kills Elsa over a male-problem, do you?”“They won’t shoot,” Elsa declared. “You don’t understand Havenstone.”“You need to work on your people skills. I know three things of relevance,” I grinned.“You think less of Desiree for reasons that have nothing to do with her bravery, or competence. You want to kill me yet you’d die for Katrina - which is another reason I didn’t shoot you. Finally, I’ve never lied to you. You are one of the most attractive women I’ve met here and your ass really is a wondrous work of art - my hand to God,” I swore.If Elsa had truly liked me, she’d have shot my balls off. As it was, it was the same old refrain - almost. Elsa, whipped the gun down, grabbed the back of my head and initiated a French kiss that would have brought Charlemagne back from the dead. On the plus side, I got to fondle her firm, muscularly perfect ass and bring forth several wanton moans from deep within her core.“Cáel! To my side,” Desiree snapped. I had to untangle myself from Elsa and man oh man, did she have strong hands. I quick-stepped it to Desiree’s side. “You’re hopeless,” she muttered. “Katrina, I have to get him some fresh clothes.”“Back to the queue, you two,” Katrina dismissed us. Elsa and Constanza watched me leave - my damn ass again.“You are worthless,” Desiree grumbled as we got onto the elevator.“Wait - she kissed me. Why is this my fault?” I complained.“You suddenly forgot how to dodge?” Desiree countered.“She had a gun on me,” I reposed.“Fine. You are hopeless and a gutless wonder,” Desiree piled it on.“You are not jealous, are you?” I teased.“Don’t make me shoot you,” she glared. “I have a gun this time, too.”“Thank goodness,” I sighed. “Otherwise I might have told you how I truly felt then kissed you and that would have cost me my job.”“Shut up, or do you want to ride the elevator the rest of the day?” Desiree threatened. I wisely kept my yap zipped. When we got to my apartment, Desiree followed me up for the first time. I was getting in the 'girlfriend has a gun’ way, which was stupid because I was already trying to date a cop and then there was the whole Buffy factor.Her appearance had an unforeseen utility; my new bed and suspension rig had arrived, all courtesy of Havenstone written off as business expenses. It seems Helena and Buffy might not need to get me a new bed after all. That was still 80 days away and I knew how much damage I could do to a bedroom set in only one semester. True, a girl set that mattress on fire, but at least she waited for me to jump off first.Without comment, Desiree helped me move my old bed out to the hallway, set up and put the sheets on the new bed and finally moved the boxes with the bondage aids onto my bed. I dressed while she watched - old hat - and we finished the hour by taking my old mattress to the curb. Yes, I lived in one of those neighborhoods.We made the academy with enough awkward time to spare. It was also enough time for that nice school security officer to come by and chat with me. She was Brazilian, divorced with a three year old son. She tried being sultry. I talked about age appropriate boy toys, parks with good playgrounds and asked where the most authentic Brazilian eateries were located.Seriously, a web search for children’s toys takes five minutes. All women want to be seen as desirable in some manner. Mothers want to know you don’t find their children to be a turn off. Immigrants want to know you are curious about their cultures. They may love America, but they are also a bit homesick.Indulging a woman’s interests is never wrong - unless you are a sexual deviant like me; then it is plain moronic and self-destructive. She had to hurry off to perform her duties. I leaned against the car while Desiree stared at me.“Yes?” I sighed.“She’s a former state criminal investigator back home,” Desiree informed me. “She caught her now ex-husband cheating on her and nearly killed both of them. She was acquitted because he shot her first.”“She kicked both their asses AFTER she was shot?” I gulped.“In the left shoulder,” Desiree regarded me impassively.“And you couldn’t have brought this up BEFORE I talked with her?” I groaned.“Oh, you think that was mean; wait until I tell Buffy that you kissed and felt up Elsa,” she continued. “I don’t have to kill you. You’ll get any number of women to do it for me.”“Hey, Elsa wasn’t my fault,” I griped.“Who do you think Buffy will believe, me - whom she’s known for years, or you - who apparently jumps on anyone who isn’t her?” Desiree pointed out.“I can’t believe you are passing up the chance to push me off the Empire State Building,” I sighed. “Missing an opportunity to make my life unpleasant is so unlike you.”“That’s not so,”

Have Gun – Will Travel is an American Western series that was produced and originally broadcast by CBS on both television and radio from 1957 through 1963. The television version of the series starring Richard Boone was rated number three or number four in the Nielsen ratings every year of its first four seasons, and it is one of the few shows in television history to spawn a successful radio version. That radio series starring John Dehner debuted November 23, 1958, more than a year after the premiere of its televised counterpart. Production. Have Gun – Will Travel was created by Sam Rolfe and Herb Meadow and produced by Frank Pierson, Don Ingalls, Robert Sparks, and Julian Claman. Of the 225 episodes of the television series, 24 were written by Gene Roddenberry. Other major contributors included Bruce Geller, Harry Julian Fink, Don Brinkley, and Irving Wallace. Andrew V. McLaglen directed 101 episodes, and 28 were directed by series star Richard Boone. Premise. This series follows the adventures of a man calling himself "Paladin" (played by Richard Boone on television and voiced by John Dehner on radio), taking his name from that of the foremost knights in Charlemagne's court. He is a gentleman investigator/gunfighter who travels around the Old West working as a mercenary for people who hire him to solve their problems. Although Paladin charges steep fees to clients who can afford to hire him, typically $1000 per job, he provides his services for free to poor people who need his help. Like many Westerns, the television show was set in a time vaguely indicated to be some years after the American Civil War. The radio show announced the year of the story that followed in the opening of each episode. The season 5 television episode, "A Drop of Blood", gives the specific date of July 3, 1879. In the fourteenth and seventeenth ("Lazarus", March 6 and 7, 1875) episodes of season 5, it is 1875. Title. The title is a variation on a cliche used in personal advertisements in newspapers like The Times, indicating that the advertiser is ready for anything. It has been used this way from the early twentieth century. A trope common in theatrical advertising at the time was "Have tux, will travel" (originally from comedian Bob Hope in 1954), and CBS has claimed this was the specific inspiration for the writer Herb Meadow. The television show popularized the phrase in the 1950s and 1960s, and many variations have been used as titles for other works, including the 1958 science fiction novel Have Space Suit—Will Travel by Robert A. Heinlein.

Charlemagne possédait une épée assez particulière. Selon la légende, l'Empereur aurait fait insérer, dans son pommeau, la pointe de la Sainte Lance, celle qui avait percé le flanc du Christ sur la croix. C'est à la présence de cette relique que l'épée devrait son nom de "Joyeuse". Ce nom et cette arme seraient également reliés au cri de guerre de la Monarchie capétienne, "Montjoie". Mais, en réalité, l'origine de cette exclamation guerrière, proférée avant la bataille, n'est pas connue avec certitude. C'est surtout la "Chanson de Roland", célèbre texte de la fin du XIe siècle, qui évoque cette épée de Charlemagne. Mais d'autres chansons de geste en parlent. Pour l'une, "Joyeuse" serait sortie des mains mêmes d'Isaac, le fils d'Abraham, tandis que, pour une autre, elle aurait d'abord appartenu à Clovis. ...Au sacre des Rois de France Si cette épée de Charlemagne est célèbre, c'est pour une autre raison. En effet, elle aurait fait partie, au même titre que le sceptre ou la main de justice, des "regalia" portées par les Rois de France lors de leur sacre. Cet usage de l'épée de Charlemagne remonterait aux XIIe ou XIIIe siècle. En tous cas, son utilisation est attestée pour le sacre de Philippe III, en 1271. La présence de cette arme prestigieuse permettait aux Capétiens d'associer leur lignée à celle des Carolingiens. Et on retrouve cette épée jusqu'au sacre de Charles X, en 1825. Si une partie de cette arme remonte bien à l'époque carolingienne, d'autres éléments semblent bien postérieurs. Cette épée est aujourd'hui conservée au musée du Louvre. D'après une autre légende, l'Empereur aurait perdu son épée, lors d'une bataille, dans un lieu situé dans l'actuel département de l'Ardèche. Un soldat l'aurait alors retrouvée. Pour le récompenser, Charlemagne lui aurait octroyé les terres situées autour du lieu de la découverte. Et c'est du nom de cette épée que la ville de Joyeuse, en Ardèche, tirerait le sien. En fait, la fondation de la ville remonte à la fin du XXe siècle, et rien ne prouve que Charlemagne soit venu en ce lieu. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
