hello, all,

This part has been slow in coming, as my muse has kept me occupied with other stories.

You may remember that Numbers was originally planned as a 3- part story, but my word count would've gone way past the allotted 1K words for this part.

Prompts:  print and black
Word Count:  ~1045

There were not any submissions on September 21, 2012.  So, I backed it up a few days and found a story by someone who posted rarely, but always to a welcoming audience.  I hope you enjoy this story by rachaeljurassic

rachaeljurassic Picfic 18/9 or 9/18 if you insist :-)

You may recall that we had a discussion about seeking out First Stories from anyone who wants to write and has lacked either the confidence or encouragement to do so.
Section VII is a perfect place for your early efforts, we're here as a writing community and we have people willing and qualified to give pointers and encouragement.  We also can recommend mfuwss the MFU Writers Survival School community, a site for fine tuning stories and skills with the input of other writers and readers.
First Stories can be posted next Tuesday, whether it's a rough draft or a finished story.

Happy Birthday to you
You belong in a zoo
You look like a monkey
And act like …

 The children's impish version of the traditional birthday song was met with an icy blue glare, causing the singer to stop his teasing refrain.

''Oh, umm… gee, sorry Mr. Kuryakin.  It's just a little, um… joke." The last word came out like small squeak, Frasier Jones from the mail room now completely cowed by the unfriendly agent.

Napoleon stepped in to try and ease the tension.

"Frasier, please don't worry, he's just annoyed at turning sixty-four.' There was a look of astonishment from Frasier.

"Yeah, all of those THRUSH drugs seem to have stopped the aging process.  We're all a lot older than you might think."  Frasier tried to read Napoleon's expression.  Would a Section II agent lie to him?

"Oh, and please don't say anything to Miss Dancer, she's older than all of us." Illya was interested in the game, and the look of amazement on Frasier's face.

"Yes, and Mr. Waverly, well … I've said too much."

Frasier tried to read their expressions but nothing seemed to say they weren't serious.  No wonder these guys spent so much time in Medical.

“Go ahead, Leona.  Remember what I told you,” Napoleon whispered to the three year old as they stood outside Illya’s bedroom door.

“Yes, Daddy,” she whispered back before knocking on the door.

“Who is it?”

“Leona Nicole!”


The little girl ran to the bed, climbed up and began to kiss the Russian’s head.  “Happy birfday, Papa!  Happy birfday!”

Illya laughed as he hugged her close.  “Thank you, Daughter!  I could not have asked for a better way to wake up than your face and kisses.”

“Daddy is making a special breakfast!”

“This day just keeps getting better and better.”

A very short story, instead of a drabble...

Napoleon walked into the office he shared with his partner. Illya was writing up a report, oddly by hand as he usually typed them.

“Machine not working tovarisch?”

“I need to replace the ribbon but in the meantime I am handwriting and will ask one of the secretaries to type it up for me.”

“Were you planning to celebrate sometime tonight?”


“You know...la la laaaa la la la... it's September 19th," Napoleon lilted the melody to ‘happy birthday.’

“Oh that. I forgot the date, though it really does not matter.”

“Well I didn’t,” Solo grinned. He produced a small wrapped bundle from behind his back.  “Many happy returns birthday boy.”

Kuryakin accepted the oddly wrapped gift; it looked like a towel, but something was inside it.

He folded it back and out popped the head of a dark tabby kitten. Its fur was medium length with a tuft of white on its chest and the tips of its paws were white as well.

“Not exactly what I had planned as your birthday gift, but it presented itself to me this morning and I thought you’d like it.”

“I do Napoleon,” Illya was busy stroking and scratching the feline’s small head which elicited a loud purr from it.

“So what are you going to name it?”

“I think I will call it Nickie.”

“Good name. Now tonight however, you will be celebrating as I have plans to take you out to dinner at the 21 Club.  April and Mark will be joining us...I think they have a little something for you as well,”Napoleon winked.

“Thank you my friend for the kitten and for tonight as well as for reminding me it was my birthday. Until recently it was something that had little meaning, so you must forgive me when I forget the date...too many unpleasant memories associated with it.”

“Illya, that was in the past, let it go.”

“I will, I promise this,” Illya winked back at him.

“Good, now finish that report; I’m hungry and want to eat dinner."

“Hey, that’s my line!”
