This week with Arlene and Jeff:

...Taking an instant to orient themselves, they proceeded on across Morales' living area. When they neared the chickens, one stopped to analyze the creatures. Gertrude took notice and approached, the module beginning to back away, but… not quickly enough. There was a quick shot of Gertrude launching herself into the air while beating her wings rapidly as she homed in on the fragile module, then a brief view of the gaping maw of the chicken as she swooped in. The view jerked crazily for a moment or two while the colors changed somewhat in the dark interior of Gertrude's mouth before she swallowed. Weird bumps and outlines showed for a few seconds before the picture suddenly cut off.

"Oh, shittt," Jeff said, laughing so hard he could hardly talk, "Did…" he gasped. "Did the fucking chicken actually swallow your module?"

"My fucking very, very expensive module," Whitworth groused.

On the screen, the view shifted to the second module's perspective as it very narrowly escaped Gertrude's second pass - the hen's pass producing a turbulence akin to what a Piper Cub might experience if narrowly missed by a 747. As the module fought for control and managed to turn away, there was a brief frontal view of Junior in a full vertical bank with wide open beak, then nothing.

This week with Arlene and Jeff:

...Jeff knew he was being set up. It wasn't as if Diana had never done anything like this before; she had, in fact, done it many times. Taking another bite, his thoughts continued. Kei is cute as can be and, if I'm not mistaken, I can see nipple bumps on the front of her blouse even though she appears to be wearing a bra. Hmmm, it surely seems as if she's excited.

Okay, maybe my women are right and I do put off some kind of pheromone or something, but that only happens when I'm sexually excited or thinking about sex, right? But damn, she has a sexy mouth that just begs to be kissed, and I wonder what's really under that blouse. Those bumps sure look interesting.

Admonishing himself, his thoughts continued, What the fuck is wrong with me? I already have sixteen wives - mostly due to my Clan Queen's manipulations. And yeah, with the mental thing, I can take care of them, and with the enhancement, I can come as many times as I want. But, dammit, this has to end somewhere. I can see that look on Diana's face - yet again. She and I need to have a real heart-to-heart chat before this goes too far. Then resignedly, If it hasn't already....

This week with Arlene and Jeff:

...It's debatable whether Gertrude was attracted by some tiny sound the modules' repulsers made or if her sharp eyes picked up the movement, but the result was the same - she alerted to the modules and, was, as always, hungry. Tiny darting things in the air meant food. The AI had not thought to program the modules with evasive action from chickens, nor did the modules' repulsers have the energy needed for combat flying. Gertrude came in like a dive-bomber and the first module was soon checking out her crop. The module was fragile and certainly not designed for that environment, let alone for when it got to the chicken's gizzard where it would be ground into even smaller pieces.

Before Gertrude could zero in on the second module, Junior was also in hot pursuit. After missing with his first pass, he banked hard and came back. The module, having seen what had happened to its buddy, managed to avoid the monster that was Gertrude, but while it was focused on her, Junior made his second pass. A third pass wasn't necessary as the half-grown chicken swallowed. By now, all the chickens were industriously looking for a snack, but were unsuccessful in finding any more. The modules weren't made of anything as mundane as metal, but that mattered little to the chickens, after all, they ate gravel to help grind food in their gizzards.

On the next micro-check by the portal, the AI reported the incident, then awaited further instructions. In the meantime, Gertrude, the other hens and chicks, tired of winter and no flying insects to chase, were on full alert for their next tiny snack...

This week with Arlene and Jeff:

...Jeff had high hopes of sneaking out with just the two women, but Kayla was waiting at the back door, a frown on her face.

"Look, Baby…" he began, knowing he was in trouble, but she interrupted him.

"Don't start. Don't you realize what the General would do to me if I let you face danger without being there?"

"Told you," Diana said with a chuckle.

"Who squealed on me?" Jeff wondered aloud. "And besides, there is no danger."

"The AI," Kayla said with a grin while ignoring the last. "And don't even think about changing his programming or trying to talk him out of telling. Arlene fixed it so that only she can change that part of his programming."

Jeff grumped good-naturedly, but knew that Kayla was only doing what she had been ordered to do, not to mention that he liked to tease her...

This week with Arlene and Jeff:

...Diana let out a sigh. "Jeff, Baby, Edi isn't Jack. I don't want you taking this out on him for what Jack did."

"Why not? I don't owe that bastard anything, except maybe killing his ass," Jeff reasoned. "If Jack had left a bruise on you or Arlene, he would have died in that alley. Remember, I saw you and Arlene nude in that basement. It was hard enough not to kill him, but if there had been bruises on either of you…" The look in the Prime's eyes sent shills down Diana's spine.

"Jeff…"

He looked at her for a long second. "We'll do it legally," he grumbled, "but if he tries to hit her…"

"Just don't kill him," Diana pleaded.

"I won't," he said with a sigh. "But, the guy is an idiot, anyway. Kei is a fox, smart as hell and makes a ton of money. He has to be dumber than dirt."...
