It happened fast.

One second, Billy was being held at gunpoint.

The next, every attacker in the room was on the ground and bleeding.

He blinked, wavering on his feet. He almost fell but a hand reached out to steady him. Unsteadily, Billy turned wide eyes to Casey, who was hardly even sweating. “You okay, Collins?”

Billy blinked again, vaguely aware of the fact that he was gaping now. “Did you kill them?”

Casey raised his eyebrows. “You hit your head harder than I’d hoped,” he said, giving Billy’s arm a small pull. “Let’s go.”

Stumbling, Billy looked over the bodies again, not certain how many there were now that his vision was doubling in earnest. “Are they really all dead?”

Casey sighed. “That would be a little excessive, don’t you think?”

Billy looked at him earnestly. “You did say you were a human weapon.”

“Sure,” Casey said. “A weapon of supreme self-control and discipline. I am capable of lethal destruction but in truth, I’m not really the killing type.”

It was Billy’s turn to raise his eyebrows. Or he tried to. It mostly just hurt and made his vision start to swim.

Casey rolled his eyes, shrugging. “Just because someone enjoys incapacitating people doesn’t mean they’re necessarily blood-thirsty sociopaths.”

“You’re not?” Billy asked.

Casey shook his head. “No,” he concluded. “Lucky for you. Now, let’s go.”

Billy took another staggering step, his stomach lurching. “I don’t feel so good, Casey.”

“All the more reason to move,” he said. “I’m not exactly the nursemaid type either. So you’ll want to get back to Michael or Carson before you--”

Casey’s voice cut off with a curse, and Billy would have apologized were he not dropping unceremoniously to the floor. Because Casey wasn’t the killing type, but Billy had always been the injury-prone type.

It turned out, they made quite a pair.

The Casey and Billy Connection

You just capture these two so well. I never tire of how you pair them up in your stories. There is a such a deeply felt friendship there. It's just plain adorable!!

Fave Part:

Casey rolled his eyes, shrugging. “Just because someone enjoys incapacitating people doesn’t mean they’re necessarily blood-thirsty sociopaths.”

“You’re not?” Billy asked.

Casey shook his head. “No,” he concluded. “Lucky for you. Now, let’s go.”


-- SO matter of fact. I can hear Casey's voice completely here.

I think you make a great distinction here, just because Casey is a human weapon doesn't mean that he likes to kill (or does so easily).

And the bonding moment between Billy and Casey is absolutely precious :)

casey human weapon

I sort of like to think of Casey as one to exhibit extreme self control. He takes pleasure in knowing he CAN kill people but prefers incapacitating them instead as a sign of restraint.

Thanks!

Flails happily

I love this, how Casey saves the day but not excessively, and Casey being forced to be nursemaid *G*

Oh, you have new icons up! Lovely!

Casey as a nursemaid is always amusing to me :)

Thanks!
