“You wanted to touch base?” Brian asked, after he’d pulled off his mask.
I swear, “touch base” is by far one of the most euphemism-sounding terms for meeting up and chatting.
“I had some words with Skitter,” Lisa answered. “I think it’s about time we all got on the same page.”
Coil. It looks like we’re going down that route this Arc.
“In terms of tactics?”
Lisa shrugged, “There’s that. I think working independently is kind of throwing us off, and it leaves us weak against any coordinated attacks from the Chosen. We work best when we complement one another.”
It’s more fun from a reader’s perspective too.
Alec shrugged. “Okay. That’s easy enough to arrange. Not really a reason to throw a major group meeting.”
On point Alec is back.
“There’s something else,” I said. I swallowed, looking at Regent, Imp and Bitch. “I’ve already talked about this at length with Lisa, and I’ve discussed it some with Brian. This isn’t an easy topic to broach, because it sort of fucks with the team’s status quo.”
Yep. Coil it is.
