Bonnie has been laid up for a few days in her room, not infecting anyone with the glittersnot.

Now that she's finally stopped sneezing the rotten stuff, she's downstairs with a broom and a vacuum cleaner trying to hoover up as much of it as possible.

Baze, finally glitter-free, approaches the industrious Bonnie with a smile. "How can I help?"
iprotectyou: Baze smiling the tiniest bit (why hello there)

"Oh, sure," Baze says, ordering a broom and dustpan from Bar. He starts to help sweep. "We probably won't get it all. You weren't sick, were you?"

"I'm sorry you were sick," Baze says, frowning, as if the corners of his mouth are tugged down by tiny hooks. "I probably infected you. Sorry. Smart of you to stay up in bed, though!"

Baze sets his broom aside and opens his arms to her. "Still. Want a hug?"

"Yes, I did," Baze says, picking up the broom once more. "He still hasn't gotten sick. I think he's truly immune, and so I'm envious as hell. Probably won't get sick from anything, whereas I'll get everything, I can just see it."

"Oh, poor Guppy," Baze says, pursing his lips. "Fry doesn't like glitter?"

"Hmm, that's too bad," Baze says, sweeping the glitter into the dustpan. He looks around for a trashcan, and, finding one behind the bar, dumps the shiny, multicolored bits into it.

"All the more reason for us to clean up. Do you think the Oompa Loompas will be able to get rid of it all?"

"Sure, I can see that happening," Baze says, nodding eagerly. "Well, it's kind of you to do, and I'll help where I can."
iprotectyou: Baze tilting his head back and laughing (hahaha)

"Nope!" Baze says cheerfully, binning more glitter. "But I modified my own weapons; I'm sure I can figure out whatever it is."

"So, basically press a button and move the sucker over the glitter, got it," Baze says, grinning.

He takes the end off the tube, and sucks brightly-colored bits right off the bar. He vacuums quickly and efficiently, and soon the bar gleam without glitter.

"These vacuum cleaners are really nice. I know some droids had some, but we couldn't afford one."

Baze shakes his head--which he can do now that he's not sick and the world won't swoop unnaturally.

"Can this thing rip the beard off my face? What kind of motor is in this?"

"I definitely won't," Baze says, his eyes wide. "Not that I'd planned to to start with, but still! Let's suck up the rest of this glitter."
iprotectyou: Baze tilting his head back and laughing (hahaha)

[personal profile] iprotectyou 2017-09-19 09:44 pm (UTC)(link)
Baze laughs. "You're on. We turn our vacuuns on in three. Ready? Three!"

He hits the button and starts picking up glitter.
iprotectyou: Baze tilting his head back and laughing (hahaha)

"I will!" Baze shouts over the noise of the dual dueling vacuums. He sucks glitter up from under tables, around the counter, and on the cushions of the chairs by the fireplace.

"You won't beat me!" Baze declares, moving chairs aside to suck up more glitter.

It takes a couple of hours, but eventually, Baze has a full bag--or so he thinks, anyway. It's kind of hard to tell.

"How'd you do?"
iprotectyou: Baze tilting his head back and laughing (hahaha)

[personal profile] iprotectyou 2017-09-19 10:17 pm (UTC)(link)
"Of course!" Baze says cheerfully, emptying the bag of glitter into the bin. He takes the plastic bag of the trashcan and ties it off, it being full of sparkly debris.

"Anytime, Bonnie. I'm glad we raced; that made cleaning fun. Good idea."

"Oh, sure, a drink is also a great idea," Baze says, licking his dry lips. "Cleaning glitter is thirsty work."

He sets the tied-off bag down by the bar for the Oompa Loompas to take care of, and approaches the counter. Settling on a bar stool, he pats Bar, and is rewarded with surprise tea--vanilla bergamot.
