sea and Gw7en pulled up across the street from a large warehouse that appeared to be abandoned.
'This is it,'
Gw7en looked skeptical. sea grinned at her.
'Doubt all you like, just keep the engine running.'
'Will do, sea. Be careful.'
sea crossed the street, walked boldly up to the warehouse door and knocked.
Yowuzupman and Arlecchino jumped as someone banged loudly on a door. The sound echoed in the dark warehouse, and Shazz's footsteps stopped. The pounding came again, and they heard Shazz go to the door.
'Who is it?!'
Shazz called, nervously.
'Door-to-door tea saleslady!'
replied a chipper British accent from the other side of the door.
'We don't want any, thank you!'
'It's very good tea!'
the saleslady pressed.
'I even have free samples! Do you like Earl Grey? Peppermint? Chamomile?!'
'I DON'T DRINK TEA!'
Shazz shouted, irate.
The saleslady gasped.
'Surely you must be joking! Don't drink tea! This is not to be tolerated! I demand that you let me in so that I can educate you in the finer points of tea drinking!'
Shazz growled, then hissed under her breath at Yo and Arl.
'You two shut up. If either of you makes ONE SOUND, I'll shoot you AND the tea lady, you hear?'
Neither one answered. Shazz checked to make sure her .9mm was loaded, then opened the door. Yo held his breath. Was it sea?!
