Summary: Teatime insists on a night out.

Ultraviolet: Electrifying, mechanized and chilly -- the scent of crushed blooms strewn on cold metal. Lush violet and neroli spiked hard with eucalyptus and a sliver of mint.

Sometimes Nny hated living in Las Vegas.

Teatime loved it, and that was what made it bearable. All the hectic, surreal lights of the Strip seemed less threatening when they were reflected in Teatime's mismatched eyes.

"I want to go out. I want to ride the roller coaster again. You liked that, didn't you, Nny?"

And Nny had, really, even if it meant going out in the seething throng of slack-jawed staring tourists, and he was glad, now, now that they were in front of the New York, New York casino and Teatime was staring at the roller coaster and giggling.

“Oh, God, look at those freaks!”

Nny and Teatime had turned as one to search out the source of that unpleasant remark, and then smiled. It was time to try out their new contraption.

Sometimes Nny loved living in Las Vegas.
