No More Tomes

“Yes, Commander, you called for me?”

Lakuu looked up to spy Khadgar striding into the room.  “Yes, I did” she answered, standing from her chair and knocking a pile of eerie books from her desk with a frustrated smack. “Ten tomes…  My forces and I have killed the greatest threats to this world, and all I got was ten tomes.”  She said, walking up to the mage and pulling her face in close to his.  “Tell me again how many you need…”

Khadgar pulled at his robe collar nervously, “I… um.. thirty-three to be exact.”

“Oh no.. no, no, no…”, Lakuu said as she reached down, picking up one of the tomes that now lay strewn on the floor.  “They say you are the greatest mage on Azeroth, you will take these ten, and you will give me my ring.”

“That is not how it…” Khadgar began to say firmly as Lakuu started to open the tome, “Wait! Don’t do that!” he said frantically, Lakuu holding a coy smile, “Oh I was just going to look at the pictures, do you want to see?”

Khadgar reeled back, “Not the pictures!  Okay, you win Commander. There is another way, but it requires incredible physical exertion.  How are you at jumping jacks?”

Lakuu slowly dropped the book back down, before striding slowly towards him. “Terrible, but I have a better idea…” she said as she moved in close to the magi, her breasts pushing close to his face as she reached around and began to run her hands through his hair.  Khadgar raised a brow before giving a smile of his own, “Oh… Well in that case, shall we begin?”
