[Aishta's Garage, Ga-Koro-Nui; morning]
Buzz Buzz Buzz Buzz...
There was dancing of sparks and the sparking of wires as my fist was embedded into the alarm clock, a concave indentation where a square shape should have been. I held it there for a few seconds to make sure it was dead before I rolled out of bed.
I pushed myself off the floor, sleepily looking about the room, licking my lip. Mornings. I really hated them. The birds may be singing, the sun may be shining, the air may be warm and beautiful, but there was noting good about them. Morning meant you had to wake up. Get up from sweet, lazy dreams, from blissful sleep, back to whatever grind you had been doing the day before...
As I slowly walked to the door, my feet dragging as I did so, my mind was trying to piece together the events of last night. Something had gone down... I thought I had a visitor... something about a vehicle. With a yawn and a stretch I opened my bedroom door and shuffled into the living room-
So you know that thing that a cat does when it gets spooked? Back arched, all hair standing on end, a hiss and an incredibly-impossible jump in some random direction. Yes, that would be me. There was what appeared to be a toa in my house sitting on my couch, and he just spoke.
When my mind caught up to what my body had done I was leaning against a near wall, poised to ponce, several gigawatts of power arcing around my hands as I breathed heavily, suddenly VERY awake. It was only now that I remembered everything the previous night in perfect clarity, and that I had offered to Firen to spend the night. With my momentarily-heightened senses I could smell fresh coffee, see an assortment of breakfast items out for consumption, and hear my dishwasher going. Apparently he was a good guest.
And I had come a heartbeat away from frying him to a charred corpse where he sat.
"Don't... don't DO that!"
I dismissed my power, fuming as I stalked to the kitchen. I wasn't a morning person to begin with, and that was possibly the most flattering and friendly greeting I had ever given anyone... not. At least I was awake now. Pouring myself a cup of coffee I grunted.
"Morning to you too... "
There were a host of words I could have finished that statement off with, but the decent part of me won out for once.
