EPISODE 015: HOURGLASS, MISTRESS OF TIME!
Hourglass sat in one of the smaller conference rooms inside the Sanctuary, sitting across from MJ-13, tapping her fingernails against the tabletop, her yellow cape draped over the back of her seat, her impatient breath moving in and out as he sat there silently, her brown gypsy hair moving closer to her lips and eyes with each tap, tap, tap …

“What do you want,” she asked, “to go out on date?”
His usually purplish/gray skin (depending on his mood) appeared to redden in the face.
“I need you to concentrate on getting control of your time distortion abilities.”
“Need I remind you …”

“I was just petting the kitty! I did not mean to send it away!”
“Yes, but if you were able to bring it back, now, that would be something.”
“Yesyes. Shut up.”
“I did not intend to upset you.”
“I want to go sailing!” She slapped both palms onto the tabletop, her mouth shut tight, her eyes fierce.

MJ-13 audibly sighed.
