"I'm being weird strange, aren't I?" Viper frowned, looking at his left hand, "Am I being strange again?"
A sound slap resonated across his face, he stared at his hand not amused, "Lefty, I don't think I -"
Another slap whipped across his face, Viper shook his head clear, "If you say so."
Bowing his head towards Jack, Viper's entire demeanor changed, "I do apologize for my...ah...excitement. Your assessment was not off by any measure, do excuse my atrocious behavior."
Taking a quiet sip of tea Viper continued, "My adrenaline was still a little...mm, peaked. And I am still curious about the bacon, I was lying neither about any of the side effects that may occur or what I owe you for risking your life. I promise, I will only do exactly what you request, nothing more and nothing less."
Finishing his cup of tea he walked over to pour himself a near one, "And Miss Silver, if you would be so kind as to help me pick out their obituaries, that would be most kind. Better prepared than sorry is what I always say." A twitch of his hand emphasized his point.
