"You're sewing?" Jeice blinked hard, hoping that the image of Zarbon sitting and repairing his cape was only
some sort of mirage; perhaps born from something funny that just happened to be seeping through the vents. Perhaps.
No such luck, it was real.
Zarbon's eyebrow twitched but he didn't look up from his work. "What are you doing here?"
"Bored. Came to bother you. I like the look of you flustered."
"You came all the way to my quarters just to annoy me," Zarbon managed to keep his voice sounding neutral.
"How nice of you."
"Seriously, what the hell?" quickly returning to his original topic, Jeice jabbed a finger forward to point
at the garment that was being repaired. "Frieza has people to fix armour and uniforms. What do you need to do it for? You're
enough of a sissy sometimes as it is."
"When you're off base for a few days, you might need some quick repairs and the people that Frieza has won't

"I used to back when I was lower down in the ranks. Unlike you, I earned my position."
"Oh yes, but there are other stories of just how you got your position. And why the very pretty boy remains
the favoured mercenary," now Jeice was suddenly grinning. This was guaranteed to get Zarbon worked up. And, yes, there it
was. The eyes were narrowing, the lips were pulled back a little, the shoulders had tensed slightly.
"I'm well aware of those rumours," Zarbon sounded very displeased as well. Jeice was starting to get his way.
"And rumours are exactly what they are."
"Oh I know," there was a smug and triumphant grin on Jeice's face, his arms folded across his chest. "But
they're quite fun to make up."
Zarbon looked up and stabbed Jeice in his thigh with the needle.
