Mayhem's After

Dick's head was down as he shoved the broom forward, sending a small wave of broken china bits toward the corner where the rest of it was. He wasn't dressed in much; a pair of pajama bottoms and a small white tee.

He was mad about the whole episode; mad that he'd gotten stopped by the golden boy Clark, mad that he couldn't get Bee to fight, and mad about being banished to his room afterwards. Now Alfred had dragged him downstairs to clean up the devastating mess that he'd made.

Looking at the torn wall paper and bashed furniture Dick wondered if he'd have to fix all that too. Probably.

Gritting his teeth he shoved again at the broom, then swore fluently as he stepped on a large shard of pottery he'd missed. He picked up the shard and chucked it as hard as he could at the pile, then lifted his foot to inspect the damage.

"Did you injure yourself?" asks Alfred from the door. Eva peeks around him curiously.

"The carpet begs to differ, Master Dick," notes the butler calmly, ignoring the inquisitive pseudo-teen behind him.

In two strides the elderly man was across the room and hauling the boy up by the back of his shirt to thump him soundly down into a chair.

"That will be quite enough!" he said sternly. "You've no need to be so miserable and petty."

"That's none of your concern, I'm sure. Now let's see that foot."

"I've seen little pokes turn to gangrene." Alfred asks Eva to fetch the first aid kit. "And we've better things to do than deal with your flesh sloughing away from the bone."

"As I said." He takes the box from Eva, then swiftly treats and wraps the wounded extremity.

"Very good, Master Dick." Alfred gives the box back to Eva and tells her to put it in its proper place, then bends down carefully and picks up a bit of porcelain that sports a pair of swallows flying together.

"Master Thomas gave this to Miss Martha the day they were married," he remembers, turning it over in his hands.

Then he shakes his head and points to the broom, surreptitiously slipping the shard into his pocket as he does so.

"It was not mine." Alfred tears away a hanging flap of wallpaper, then turns and walks from the room.

There's a whisper of movement behind him, and then Dämmerung steps from the shadows and perks her ears, her colour-streaked face as impassive as ever as she surveys the damage.

She ignores him, noting only: "Brenda's parents loved these things, she says."

"No. Because obviously the vorld revolves around you, und no vone else matters." She turns and vanishes again.

"The only bitter individual that I see here is you," says Alfred crisply as he returns from calling the people who will put up new wallpaper and redecorate the room.

"She's quite right, you know. There are other people in the world. And as you're totally unwilling to accept assistance with your own problems there's really no point in your constantly calling others' attention to them."

"I have it." Alfred took the handle on the can and wheeled it out of the room.
