Lost Tales: The 12 Nuts of Christmas, Pt 4 Professor

December 16
Professor Neal Dimatto sat in his basement lab, surrounded by large tubes and testing chambers, all large enough to hold a human being easily. The lab was well lit in some places and mysteriously dark in others. Mood lighting really, it was kind of cool, you should see it. Anyways, he sat at his console looking up at six ridiculously large computer screens. Each one was showing a vid feed from Spirals, the club that he owned. On the first screen was an image of Celest, using her magic. On the Second was an image of Ruby turning a gem into a dagger and then back again while demonstrating the ability for Sam. The third was divided into four parts each one showing Larka in a completely different dress and completely different style each time. The fourth one showed Shadow, in one of the rare instances when her halo would come out. The fifth showed Isabella during the time when Liam was hypnotizing her, her demonic eye and ear clearly present. The last screen showed Kila, wandering Spirals while no one was supposed to be there.

The professor typed a few things on his keyboard and an analysis window popped up on each screen. For Celest it showed that she was a mage, her relative strength and her estimated age. For Ruby it showed that she was an unknown version of human with a high magical ratio. Larka’s screen was a bit more interesting, depending on how you look at it. It registered her as human with an unknown biological anomaly, and an unknown magical anomaly. Shadow was registering as and Unknown type of angel. While Isabella was listed as an unknown human – demon hybrid. Kila’s screen was the most perplexing to the professor. Kila’s screen simply showed one word “Unknown.”

Lost Tales: The 12 nuts of Christmas, Pt 3 Mike

December 15th
It was starting to snow, and Mike was walking home from a long days work, of well… not really working. He was in a good mood though. He enjoyed Christmas, he enjoyed the feeling of the season, he enjoyed the cakes and the cookies, the hustle and bustle, and he enjoyed the lights. Oh Holy Crap! Did he enjoy the lights!

He had not gotten a chance to show off his abilities for nearly 11 months, and yet now the time and the day, the season was upon him. He figured he should warm up just a bit, before he really started to show off. As he said this he passed a house where a family was trying to set up their lights. The adults were busy trying to figure out how to make a 20 foot extension cord power lights that were 45 feet from the outlet. While the children, both of them very little were busy winding the lights around the evergreen in the front. But because of their small size they were very heavily lighting the bottom of the tree, and nothing else.

Mike smiled as he walked past and with a little grin waves at the lights the kids were working on and suddenly they all lit up. The little kids cheered and clapped but when the parents turned to see what was going on, the lights turned off.

Lost Tales: The 12 Nuts of Christmas, Pt 2 Martin

Key: MC, MD, Sleep
December 14th
The East Side floral shop was nestled quietly between a super market, and a shopping mall. The perfect place to soak up all of the anger and frustration from the passers by, and located in just the right place to get patrons from both.

The shop itself looked rather quaint, flowers and trees of all shapes and sizes assorted around the shop, filling up every nook and cranny as plants inevitably will. Being the Christmas season the shop was full of Christmas tree’s and wreathes, and poinsettias of all various different colors.

Martin, the store owner, was busy tending to a plant that had been injured in a recent visit. One of the customer’s children had yanked a leaf off of it, when the plant audibly screamed he had to act quickly to make sure the mother was sufficiently mellowed in order to not notice. A Quick sniff of a Blissful Rose was enough to send her cares away. The child, who was immune to the effects of the rose, would be scolded, no doubt, for making up wild stories about screaming plants and flowers that made mommy act funny. “Serves the little brat right!” he thought as he had finished patching up the poor little plant.

Lost Tales: The 12 Nuts of Christmas, Part 1 Joshua


Christmas is one of those magical times of year… everyone seems to do something. Some people spend it with their families. Some people spend it with friends. Some people go to the movies. Some people go to the bar. Some people sit outside yelling at the people celebrating Christmas and telling them they are stupid. And some people go to the store and beat the snot out of other people all in the name of getting the newest hottest toy. The following is a brief recap of how a randomly chosen group of twelve people spend the holidays.

Merry Christmas, I hope you enjoy it!

The First Nut of Christmas

Key: MD, M/F, MC, Freeze

December 13th, a Friday…
Christmas was one of Joshua’s favorite times of the year. Think about it, people moving constantly rushing from here to there. The lights all flashing, everyone focused on one thing… being somewhere else. So much so that no one actually notices if something is happening right in front of them. He can feed in plain sight and too many people are far too busy looking for the newest beanie baby, or Harry Potter toy that they don’t even bother to notice the vampire right in front of them until it’s far too late.

Xander vs Dawn Part 12: Final Count

Key: MC, MD, FD, Hypno, Sleep, Freeze
The room was dark, two figures could be seen on either side, both with tails, both with demonic wings. One male, one female. The time had finally come to decide who was better, who would be crowned the victor... who would win the battle, of Xander vs. Dawn.

As the two moved slowly closer to one another glaring at each other the whole time and finally stopping a few inches from one another. It was Xander who spoke first. “Let's see what you got, little miss tight pants.”

Dawn on the other hand pulled back with a look of revolt and waved her hand in front of her face repeatedly. “Holy crap, what did you eat for lunch? A chili dog with a side of onion! Yuck!”

Xander narrowed his eyes then looked at you the reader. “don't you hate when weird crap like this happens?” Then glanced back at Dawn “Enough stalling!” he shouted “Let's do this!” storming over towards her side of the warehouse.

Dawn simply smirked and shook her head following him. “indeed... lets!”

Xander stomped over to Dawns side and threw back the tarp that was protecting her area, the first thing he did was scream, for directly before him laying on the couch was Sarah, the police officer who had arrested him several times, and his mini-nemesis Nadia. “Wow, you got both of them, I'll give you that I'm impressed with that.” he said genuinely.

Dawn smiled as she confidently strolled past Xander “I thought you would be” she commented, “They both fell quite easily to be honest, especially the hypnotist.” Dawn did an excellent job of hiding that she had technically cheated in using Nadia and Abigal in her count since they had hypnotized each other. But ignoring that fact she even moved over to Abigal and gently slid a hand along her cheek. “I got this young lovely as well.” She tilted Abigal's head up to show Xander then slid the finger out from under her chin and let her heavy, hypnotized head fall back to her chest. Her hair bounced from the impact.

Xander looked impressed to say the least, and nodded “Good job, and lets face it, they are both gorgeous” he said with a wink.

Dawn just rolled her eyes “ugh, men” she said as she moved over to the next couch. On this one she showed off Eva, Tammy, whom Xander recognized from Spirals then introduced Fawn.

Xander gave a sideways grin “I met Fawn before you know, the night that we ended up..” he cut his comment short and substituted an eyebrow wiggle and a grin. He was met with the business end of Dawn's fist.”

“And that will never... EVER.. happen again!” she shouted angrily. “Especially since I most definitely won.” she turned with a huff and moved to a third couch across from the other two and stood defiantly in front of the couch with her hands on her hips. In the classic 'heroine' pose as she introduced her final two victims. “And this is Barbara, and Jessica. I had to actually out draw Jessica in a shoot out!” she proudly proclaimed, before folding her arms and shifting her weight to one leg “Top that dingbat.”

Xander pulled the tarp from his side of the warehouse away with a very charismatic “Wallah!” He proceeded to show off, most of his prizes. There was another tarp that was covered holding the posed Veo.

Dawn looked over his victims one by one, “I will admit you do have a nice selection, I see you also raided my housemates, just tell me you didn't violate any of them.” she said with her arms still folded and her head cocked to the side in disgust.

Xander rolled his eyes. “no I didn't touch any of them beyond what was needed to capture them” he lied convincingly. “So what do you think?”

Dawn looked through the group and couldn't help but crack a smile when she saw Dusk, but she didn't comment on her just yet. She simply looked over the group. “Well, I will admit using hypnosis, and... “she moved over to Dr. Stacey and sniffed “what is that a chemical? Anyways, using hypnosis and whatever that was to freeze some of these lovelies was a nice touch. They could be used as decoration until I'm ready to drain them.” she moved up to the frozen form of her housemate Jen and slid her hand along her arm. “And they do look so nice...”

Xander folded his arms and retracted his wings into his back, allowing them to disappear under his skin, as he leaned back against a pillar “Not so fast hot shot, I counted 8 girls on your side. I have nine, and I even have an extra...” he was cut off before he could finish the sentence.

“You cheated.” Dawn said in a completely flat tone with a knowing grin. “Dusk was off limits, we agreed to that.”

Xander shifted a little “yeah you are right about that, but I still have...” he was cut off again.

“And, this little one...” she said gently lifting up the nurse's head “wasn't put out by you, the injection spot on her hand is a perfect hit for an artery, you are grossed out by blood and therefor avoid anything to do with blood, including arteries. The Doctor clearly injected her.” She let the nurse's head fall back against her shoulder as she started to move closer to Xander. “Plus, “she said walking right past him then doing a quick turn letting her wings slap him across the face. “Celene here... was drained” She said slowly walking over to Celene and sliding her hand along her body. The energy inside of her body became visible, a yellow swirl or life force moving inside of her. “By a Succubus, no less. Midnight I suspect. You couldn't even capture your own people Xander. How pathetic.” She said placing her hands confidently on her hips. “I... win.”

Xander sighed and was quite annoyed, but he knew he still had an ace in the hole. But he wanted to keep her cocky as long as he could. So he took a deep breath and sighed “Alright, I concede, your eight, beats out my seven.”

Dawn grinned and shook her head. “Six, math never was your strong suit, three of yours are disqualified that makes it six.”

Xander grinned and tilted his head to look behind Dawn. “You forgot to count... her.”

Dawn turned around and noticed the tarp. It was too big to be a human, it looked more like a small airplane missing it's wings. She carefully moved over to the tarp and pulled it away, only to discover she was half right. The creature before her definitely had wings, and was definitely not human. “oh...” she sigh “It's Veo!”

Xander smiled as he watched Dawn walk up to the posed angel, and gently slide her hand along her cheek, then down her neck. Running a finger over her ornate necklace that twisted from her neck down her arm. Before sliding her hand gently along the side of the angel's breast. “I have always thought she was beautiful... “ Dawn admitted not really realizing she was talking. “And I have always wondered, what you would taste like.”

The succubus was clearly engrossed in the frozen victim before her, as Xander noticed her leaning in to kiss Veo. Although that in and of itself would have been a fantasy for him, he just watched, with a smile.

Dawn slid her hand along Veo's cheek and ran her nose softly along the angel's nose as she whispered “I have waited so long for this...” She leaned in a bit more, lips getting closer and closer to the angel's

“So have I” Veo said as her posed face turned into a grin, and a single finger moved up to touch
Dawn's chin.

The succubus seemed to be almost instantly paralyzed. She was aware of the world around her but she couldn't move. The angel in front of her was no longer frozen. “Was she ever frozen?” she thought... “he tricked me, he tricked me!” She screamed in her mind.

“Yes, he did trick you.” Veo said with a smile as her wings folded up on her back and she started to stretch out a bit. “I'm so glad she finally got around to making an ass of herself, I was getting stiff standing there all that time.” she said with a smile to Xander. “care to come claim your prize?”

Xander smiled as he walked up to Dawn and turned her around slowly to face him. Veo kept her hand firmly on the back of Dawn's head to keep her paralyzed. While Xander caressed his hand along her cheek and whispered. “See, I told you you might be able to beat me, but you could never beat her.”

Dawn was screaming inside, if she could move she would have ripped his throat out. But instead she was helpless as she felt her energy slowly draining away from her. Xander's hand was sliding up and down her arm and every stroke was slowly taking more and more of her energy. She was being drained again. To add to the situation Xander had the gall to lean in, rubbing his nose along her's just like she had done to Veo. Only there was no one here to stop him from moving in that last half an inch, and kissing his target, her.

As Xander continued his kiss, and Dawn felt her body weakening, her eye lids fluttering closed, one final thought rolled through her mind. “The worst part about this whole damn thing... is he is a really really good kisser....” and then she surrendered to sleep. Falling back into Veo's waiting hands.

The angel held her with a smile until Xander had finished draining his prey, then casually dropped Dawn to the floor like a sack of potatoes. “Well Honeybun” she said with a smile “Did you enjoy your victory?”

Xander grinned and gave Veo a nice big hug “Oh so much, thank you so, sooo much. I wasn't sure I could beat her, and honestly I didn't.” he said looking a little sad.

Veo chimed in casually as she noticed Celene starting to wake up slowly on the couch, her energy having rebuilt to the point of allowing her to awaken. “Actually you did beat her” Veo stated matter-of-factly as she raised her hand and fired an orb out at Celene. As the young woman was struck by the orb her entire body lit up with a white aura. Her body seemed to relax instantly as she sighed and
sank back onto the couch.

Xander completely ignored Celene and tilted his head “What do you mean I won? I only got six, she got eight.”

Veo smiled, having been connected to Dawn's mind her secret was out “Actually she only got, five, Nadia and Abigal hypnotized each other, and Sarah was hit by a falling flower pot. You won.”

Xander couldn't help but laugh as he looked down at the sleeping Dawn. “I guess I did, didn't I!” he wrapped his arms around Veo and gave her a big hug, then pulled back and left his hands on her shoulders, slowly starting to massage them. “Thank you for your help my old friend, I wouldn't have been able to do it without you.” He said genuinely. However, Veo was already very distracted by massage on her shoulders. And he couldn't help but grin. “You should sit down, let me rub your shoulders. After all Veo, you had a long day, and you would like to... relax now. Just let everything drift away. Allow the world to simply fade as you focus on my hands. Focus on my words. Feel how my hands make your shoulders relax. Feel how my words help your mind to relax. Every squeeze helps you to sink deeper, and deeper. Every word, helps your mind to fade away, drifting. Down.”

Veo's eyes were already closed, and her head was starting to wobble with the massage. Xander had probably been told about a thousand times that Veo was susceptible to hypnosis, but he never really remembered. Or paid attention. But right now that was irrelevant, as she just wobbled on her feet, and her head slowly fell to her chest. As he leaned in and whispered into the ear of his old friend “Sleep my friend. Relax and sleep.” as he said the second 'sleep' he squeezed his shoulders and Veo sank into his arms.
She was remarkably heavy, all the muscle she had. And he tried to drag her over to the couch but her huge wings went limp and knocked over several boxes as well as a lamp, and Dr. Stacey. So instead he simply lowered her to the ground, and went and got her a pillow.

Having taken care of his dear friend he stood up and surveyed the Warehouse full of young beauties all completely helpless and rubbed his hands together with a grin. “Lunch time!”

He never noticed the red and blue flashing lights outside the Warehouse, getting closer and closer.

The End... of the Beginning.

Xander vs Dawn, Part 11: Outside the Warehouse

Key: MD, MC, Sleep, Freeze
 Xander had managed to carry not only the unconscious redheaded nurse on his shoulder all the way from the hospital, but the frozen Dr. Stacey under his arm as well. Needless to say having one girl completely limp and another stiff as concrete made the journey rather difficult. Aside from the obvious issues of walking down crowded streets or taking the bus with two girls like this, he also had the issue of the dear doctor getting stuck in doorways. He really hoped that she couldn't feel anything in this state.

But now, finally, he had arrived at the final staging area for the bet, a large warehouse tucked away in the quieter parts of the business district. The warehouse was the same one he had used when he tried to create a harem not too long ago. Ah, the memories.

He moved over to the door and set Dr. Stacey up on her feet. After making sure the brunette wouldn't fall over, he moved to the warehouse door, unlocked it, threw it open and then ran over to grab the doctor to try and drag her and the unconscious nurse, still on his shoulder, through the door. If you have ever tried this move with grocery bags you know exactly how it ends.

He tried again and again but every time either the doctor would get stuck in the door, or the nurse, or the door would close. Or one time he just tripped and dropped everything. Again, really hoping the girls couldn't feel anything at this point.

Finally he had an idea. He would lay the doctor on her back, lay the nurse on top of her, pick up both girls at once and then run toward the door. It was planned out perfectly. He quickly threw open the door, ran over to grab the helpless young ladies and picked them up, spinning around with them in his arms…only to scream and drop them both.

Standing at the door to the warehouse was a lovely young blonde haired angel, who was happily holding the door open for him. At the sight of him screaming and dropping both girls the young angel giggled and asked sweetly “How about I carry one of them so you can stop dropping them?”

Xander was, needless to say, confused. Most angels wouldn't readily go along with a scheme like this. She must be very...very young. Or just super naive. But she did have one redeeming quality. She was hot as hell...or heaven...or whatever, you get the point. She was attractive! So he smiled at the young angel and nodded. offering her the passed out nurse. “Thank you. That would be lovely, miss?”

The angel smiled and cradled the nurse in her arms. “Lucia. My name is Lucia, and you are, sir?”

Xander couldn't' help but think he had heard that name before. He assumed it was someone that Veo had mentioned over the centuries so he didn't pay it any mind and simply picked up Dr. Stacey, carrying her to the door. “Xander. My name is Xander, and thank you for the help.”

Xander and Lucia carried the two girls into the warehouse's main storage area. It had been divided into two parts, red for Dawn, and blue for Xander, with a curtain separating the two locations so neither could see who the other had captured or how many. Not that either had had the time to really peek. Xander carried the frozen doctor over to an area near the other girls he had collected and set her up on her feet. Her clothes had become quite disheveled during the trip, but she was no worse for wear. He then turned to Lucia to direct her towards a couch where she could deposit the young nurse.

Lucia sat the young redhead down, then looked around the immediate area “You have quite the collection of young women here, is there a reason you’re doing this?” She asked so innocently that Xander wasn't sure if she was really paying attention to what was actually going on or not.

“Well...” he started a bit nervously “I'm kind of in a competition with a succubus that I know.
Whomever gets the most victims wins, and, well, this is my collection so far. I'm hoping I might add one more before the day is done. Won't that burn Dawn's hot little ass.” he said, not realizing he had just given Dawn a compliment.

Lucia completely missed the part about her being the 'one more' that he hoped to add, and gave Xander a curious look “Dawn? The succubus is Dawn? Black leather, skin tight outfit, red hair Dawn?” she asked, excited.

Xander blinked at Lucia, “Yeah, that's the one. You know her?”

Lucia laughed playfully “Of course I know her. She's my housemate! We all live together at the Mato house!”

That sentence finally jarred Xander's memory. And like a scene from a Sci-Fi movie, the memory of not only meeting, but seducing and draining, Lucia came flooding back to mind. That explained why he thought she looked familiar! She was there when he drained all the girls! “Oh crap!” he thought to himself. “She knows.”

He adjusted himself a bit and smiled “Oh, how nice! Has she ever mentioned me, the incubus Xander? We have had a few run-ins lately and I, well, you know every guy loves to have his ego stroked.”

Lucia blushed a bit and giggled, then shook her head “Sorry. I know she talks about this one incubus that she knows that drained her one time, but she usually turns bright red and talks so fast no one can really hear what she's saying.”

Xander breathed a small sigh of relief. For some reason Lucia's memory of him draining her seemed to have been clouded, and although Dawn knew about it she lacked the calm demeanor to get the information out. Perfect. Now much more relaxed, he smiled and looked at Lucia “Would you like to see my collection?”

Lucia nearly bounced up and down, excitedly clapping as she responded. Xander couldn't help but laugh as he moved over to the assortment of young women. First up was the hypnotically frozen Jen, still in the same pose she was in when he had frozen her with that stealth induction. He was about to explain how he got her when Lucia chimed in “Hey, that's Jen! Another one of my housemates! Wow, they must all really get around.”

Xander, could barely believe how clueless Lucia was about what was going on, but decided to continue anyways and pointed to the couch next to Jen. On the couch was the angelically hypnotized succubus Midnight, slumped over onto the angelically drained succubus Dusk, who was slumped over onto the demonically drained Celene. Again, before he could introduce them, Lucia chimed in “Is that Dawn's sister?” she asked, pointing to Dusk.

Xander smiled proudly “Yup. Win or lose, I think I might keep this one as a trophy. Think Dawn would let me?” he asked playfully.

Lucia looked at him a bit confused “I suppose it's possible, she is family, but they don't seem to get along well. She might ask to visit from time to time. Is that the bouncer from Spirals?”

Xander glanced over to Celene “yes, do you know her too?” he asked, more curious if Lucia remembered any of her encounter at Spirals or not.

Lucia shook her head “Never met her, just remembered seeing her when I was there...” Lucia's eyes took on a faraway look as she turned to Xander and said in a relaxed tone “It was a wonderful evening, we all had a great time. No evil hypnotist tried to take over our minds.”

Xander just looked at Lucia with an eyebrow raised, “Ooook, well that was believable... moving
on!” he said, moving to another smaller couch where a curly haired blonde and a busty dark haired girl both sat slumped back to back against one another. The blonde’s head was down against her chest, which caused her curly hair to form a kind of frame around her face. While the darker haired girl’s head was leaning back against the blondes shoulder. With her head in that position, her mouth was left open and her already large bust was pushed outward. “I managed to get both of these young ladies at the book store, a little hypnotic poetry. You don't know them, too, do you Lucia?” he asked, genuinely curious.

Lucia looked them both over and shook her head “no, I'm afraid not...” Then her eyes widened in surprise “Her on the other hand... I definitely know!” She moved past Xander to an angelic figure standing off to the side. The burnt wings of the lovely angel were extended out to their full length, nearly 20 feet from wing tip to wing tip. The jeweled necklace wrapped around her arm and neck, and her elegant dress simply hung off of her eternally fit frame. “how did you manage to capture General Veo?!” Lucia asked in shock.

Xander laughed “General?” he asked knowing the answer “She retired eons ago. And to be honest, capturing Veo was not as hard as you might think, her and I go way back. She trusts me implicitly. And, well, I do have some powers and abilities after all.” he said with a wink.

Lucia tried to hold back her laugh but it slipped out anyways. “no, really how did you capture her?”

Xander was starting to get offended. “I told you... I have powers!”

Lucia was now laughing pretty openly “You’re an incubus!” she paused to laugh some more “and not a very strong one. I know you say you have powers, but they would never be strong enough to get an angelic general!”

Xander grinned “Oh really... would you care to see?” He said stepping closer to Lucia. The young angel giggled a bit and was about to answer when she came face to face with a swirling blue orb. “that's a girl Lucia. Just focus on the orb, and let its powers sink into your mind.”

The young angel’s eyes reflected the orb perfectly, and Xander watched as the muscles in her face slowly sank, followed by her shoulders and her wings. As her arms gently started to slouch her wings, which up until now had been folded behind her, slowly started to open and fold down with gravity. Xander held the orb exactly where it was until her wings were both stretched out on the ground on either side of her, looking more like a long cape then a pair of angelic wings.

“There you go Lucia. So easy for you to just stay here, like this. Seeing the orb in your mind as it flashes over and over again, and helps to take you into a nice deep... sleep.” As he said sleep he waved his hand over Lucia's eyes.

The young angel's body didn't even move. Only her eyes, which were open before Xander moved his hand across her face, had closed when his hand passed by.

He looked at his collection and nodded, then glanced over at Veo “Not bad for a day’s work, wouldn't you say?”

The Angelic general didn't move an inch, save for a single eyelid closing and opening in a wink....

Xander vs Dawn, Part 10: The Street Fight

Key: Mc, FD, Sleep
Dawn was a bit preoccupied as she walked down the street. It was getting late, the sun was starting to get low on the horizon, which meant that the challenge between her and Xander was just about done. Although she was confident that she had more then Xander she still wanted to hedge her bet a bit more, wanted to grab at least one more person. One more, prey, as it were before the end of the competition.

She was slowly scanning the street as she walked, looking for the perfect victim. She needed someone who would be quick and easy, although she normally liked to take more time, time was at a premium right now.

She happened to spy the perfect victim, young, attractive, long brown hair and black leather dress that looked more appropriate for a night club then walking down the street. She would do perfectly. Since she didn't want to waste time she figured she would rely on an old trick that she hadn't used since the raid at Spirals. The projectile Hypnosis Orb. (Trademark pending).

Xander vs Dawn, Part 9: The Hospital

Key: FD, Sleep, MD, Freeze, M/F
The hospital was a strange place to find an Incubus, especially one in the middle of a very competitive competition, but Xander had one small quirk...OK, he has many quirks but one small quirk that is relevant. He is a major Hypochondriac* and on his way out of the book store... someone down the street sneezed. So it's only logical that he went straight to the emergency room.
After being checked in by the nurse at the front counter who clearly recognized him as he caught her shaking her head with a grin as she walked him into an exam room. In the room Xander did what everyone does in an exam room. Randomly wander the room playing with things they are not supposed to touch. That is until the door opened, and a lovely young redheaded nurse walked in. Although the reaction that Xander had to her was not what you might expect.
As she walked in the nurse looked at her clip board and then back at him and sighed. “I see your back... what is it this time, a hang nail? Or did a black cat cross your path?” The tone was a strange mix of sweet, and yet extremely sarcastic. Something about her manner her confidence excited Xander but at the same time she knew exactly how to hit his buttons in all the wrong ways. She moved to him and told him to raise his arm.
