    Postman didn't exactly stand a chance. Everyone in the room cheered as he re-entered on the wrong end of a lightning bolt. Then Phoenix Talon finally made it through to Count Bastard and sent him flying with a vicious blow to the head from the electrified bokken; he would have gone for a very long fall if Scott hadn't caught him.

    "No." He's going to be in the hospital for a while, though.

    "Where'd Cait Sidhe go?" I asked, then decided, "No, wait, perhaps I shouldn't ask," seeing Thunderbolt's expression.
    Phoenix Talon lit out as soon as it became clear that the police were on their way and things were under control.
