Author's Notes: Written for Chaotic Lullaby because we had a bet XD And because I love making her spazz 'cause she turns into the most amazing shade of red…Anyway. I hope Van's in character. Set after the anime. Try imagining the scene where Van is drinking with softcore porn music. It is amusing.


"Van, what are you doing?"

"Washing Dann."

Wendy blinked. Didn't Dann automatically get cleaned up whenever he was sent back to his satellite? Oh well, best to let Van go on with what he wanted to do. She stood up from where she was sitting on the ground and stretched before she began walking to her kitchen door. "I'm getting something to drink. Want anything?"

"Milk." Van squatted and began rubbing Dann's ankle with a washcloth.

Wendy sighed. She should have known. "Okay."

She gave a sigh of relief as she walked into the kitchen; the temperature drastically dropped once you were indoors. As she pulled out glasses from her cabinet, she glanced out the window into her backyard and watched Van for a few seconds. He had tilted back his hat a bit but was still refusing to take it off.

When she was done pouring milk into one glass and water into another, Wendy went back outside, pushing open the door with her hip. "Van, here's your milk." She extended her hand, offering the man his drink.

Van stepped out from behind Dann's leg and to Wendy's immense shock—and surprise and horror and…delight?—took off the upper half of his swallowtail suit, carelessly dropping it on the ground, before swiping a hand across his sweaty brow. "Thanks," he said, taking the glass of cold milk from her.

Wendy felt her entire face turning scarlet. She wanted to turn around or at least look in a different direction but Van had started drinking his milk, head tilted back, Adam's apple bobbing slightly as the liquid went down his throat.

She realized that she was staring only when Van asked, "What's wrong?"

"Don't do that in front of me!"
