The Usual Place

by Elim


There  are  a  small  group  of  officers  standing  in  a
small  storage  room,  in  HQ. Most  are  smoking  and
passing  around  a  couple  of  bottles  of  wine  Captain
Darling  had   managed  to  have  lost  before  reaching
the  General's  table.  He  had even  managed  to
scrounge  enough  glasses  for  everyone  and  a  few
chairs. The boxes  usually  filling  the  room  were  all
pushed  into   the  corners,  giving  the  men just  enough
space  to  comfortably  move  about  in.  There  was  even  softly  playing

Most  of  the  men  were  talking  in  small groups, eyeing  each  other  up
to  some degree.  There  were  a  few
standing  close  enough  to  touch.  Every  now  and  then
a  pair  would  excuse  themselves  and  leave.  But,
Darling  was  nervous -  to  such  an extent  he  was
having  trouble  concentrating  on  the  discussion  he
was  having with  a  couple  of  old  friends.  He'd  twitch
and  jump  noticeably  whenever someone  new  would
come  into  the  room.

He  refused  to  admit  he  was  worried,  but  it  was
clear  to  the  rest  of  the  men Darling  was  fretting.  He
knew  exactly  how  dangerous  the  mission  Blackadder
had  been  sent  on,  though  Darling  was  reasonably
certain  that  Blackadder  would find  a  way  around
any  little  difficulties.

Then  Blackadder  finally  arrives,  looking  harassed  and
worse  for  wear.  A  Lieutenant  gives  him  a  glass and
fills  it  with  wine  from  the  nearest  bottle.  He quickly
sees  Darling  and  heads  straight   over.  Without
looking  at  any  of  the other  men  in  the  small  group,
he  kisses  Darling.


"That's Captain  Darling  to  you,  Blackadder."
