She was prepared for him to shut her down, when Behr shrugged a shoulder and said, 'Yeah, sounds good. I think it's a good idea for you to get out of the house. But, ' he said, stepping back into the kitchen and leveling her with a hard look, 'only if I tag along.' 'What? Why?' Cheyenne questioned, not understanding the need for chaperones. 'Because it's safer that way, ' he reasoned. 'I have a couple things to take care of first, so it will probably be a day or two. I expect you to wait for me, though, Cheyenne, ' he said, his brilliant blue eyes holding her in place. 'It's safer that way.' She was preparing to argue when she realized that she wasn't altogether sure she wanted to venture out on her own yet anyway. It might be a shock to her system after locking herself away for so long. For laughs, she decided to give him a hard time anyway. 'But... ' she started. He cut her off with an upraised hand. 'No buts, ' he said sternly. 'It's not safe and you know it, and besides, that's what you have two strapping young men like us for.' He clapped a grinning Dehstroy on the back. Cheyenne threw her head back and laughed. 'You, young? Ha!' 'What?' Behr said, acting offended. 'I'm young.' 'Prove it, ' Cheyenne challenged. 'Show me your birth certificate.' When he pursed his lips, she laughed some more. 'What's wrong? Didn't they make birth certificates yet when you were born? No?' She looked between the men, taking in their sheepish expressions. 'Well, then. I'll leave you two to work on clearing that schedule.' Waving, Cheyenne left the kitchen and headed upstairs to her room to lie down.

If you cannot understand my argument, and declare "It's Greek to me", you are quoting Shakespeare; if you claim to be more sinned against than sinning, you are quoting Shakespeare; if you recall your salad days, you are quoting Shakespeare; if you act more in sorrow than in anger; if your wish is farther to the thought; if your lost property has vanished into thin air, you are quoting Shakespeare; if you have ever refused to budge an inch or suffered from green-eyed jealousy, if you have played fast and loose, if you have been tongue-tied, a tower of strength, hoodwinked or in a pickle, if you have knitted your brows, made a virtue of necessity, insisted on fair play, slept not one wink, stood on ceremony, danced attendance (on your lord and master), laughed yourself into stitches, had short shrift, cold comfort or too much of a good thing, if you have seen better days or lived in a fool's paradise -why, be that as it may, the more fool you , for it is a foregone conclusion that you are (as good luck would have it) quoting Shakespeare; if you think it is early days and clear out bag and baggage, if you think it is high time and that that is the long and short of it, if you believe that the game is up and that truth will out even if it involves your own flesh and blood, if you lie low till the crack of doom because you suspect foul play, if you have your teeth set on edge (at one fell swoop) without rhyme or reason, then - to give the devil his due - if the truth were known (for surely you have a tongue in your head) you are quoting Shakespeare; even if you bid me good riddance and send me packing, if you wish I was dead as a door-nail, if you think I am an eyesore, a laughing stock, the devil incarnate, a stony-hearted villain, bloody-minded or a blinking idiot, then - by Jove! O Lord! Tut tut! For goodness' sake! What the dickens! But me no buts! - it is all one to me, for you are quoting Shakespeare.
