"So, I'm pretty new at this," said Thanh as he watched Haley, Belkar and Mr. Scruffy leave. "and Haley said that I should ask you for advice on doing anything sneaky, which it appears we're going to be doing a lot, therefore I guess that I should make you my second in command."
"Fine by me, as long as I don't have loads of administrative duties." answered Niu, "You lawful types can handle that."
"Well, I think that we should at least have regular meetings." Thanh replied.
"Fine." said Niu, rolling her eyes.
"Look," said Niu with exasperation, "this "fighting with honour" isn't going to get our city back. Haley had us using guerrilla tactics for a reason. We're completely outnumbered."
Thanh sighed. "You're really much better at this than I am. Haley was right to suggest that I listen to you on these issues, but I'd rather hand over the entire operation. How can my skills be of benefit here?"
"Don't be ridiculous!" snapped Niu, "The Sapphire Liberation Front respects you. Besides, I've seen you fight. I know what those muscles of yours can do. You're an asset to this team and I don't want to hear you saying otherwise." Thanh stared at her in shock. "Thank you." he said, "I really appreciated that compliment, especially coming from you. To be honest, I thought that you agreed that I was dead weight here. Do you really like my muscles?" Niu blushed.
"I…I didn't say that." she said. "I just…implied that I recognised their usefulness." Thanh smiled. "Still," he said, "it's nice for them to be appreciated by an attractive woman. That hasn't happened to me before. At least, not that I'm aware of." Niu raised an eyebrow. "You really are clueless about these things aren't you? You are a perfectly attractive man whom many women have been gawking at. However, we're not here to discuss how attractive we think the other is. We're here to plan assaults on the hobgoblin military."
"Of course." replied Thanh. "Though as this is our first meeting with nothing on the planned agenda and no official time limit, we could discuss other things that we decide are relevant as well." Niu froze. He was right. This was their first meeting. No one had any idea of how long they would take so if they stayed in the office for much longer, no one would realise that anything was amiss. She bit her lip. He had admitted that he found her attractive and now he knew hat she felt the same way. This meeting was going to be extremely frustrating if they continued to discuss the hobgoblin problem whilst knowing that they both found each other attractive, that there was no one else in the room and that they could do whatever they liked in here and no one would be any wiser. She looked at his moustache. It was large and thick, completely obscuring his lips. She wondered what they looked like. What they felt like. "Come here." she said and wrapped her arms around his head.
"What are…?" asked Thanh before being pressed against her lips. His moustache was ticklish. She liked the feeling. These meetings were going to be a lot less tiresome than she originally thought.
