But day-to-day it pretty much meant he was just a guard dog for Don King's investment here. About every turn, someone or something would pop in Otoh or Kibo, and he'd fly out and assign them their duties. That was it. Other than bedding down with the Queen (when she was around-she'd been gone for a dozen turns now), there wasn't a lot of fun to be had, or many perks to this job.

"Vinny...that's prob'ly the only reason she went out there in the first place. Don'tcha think?" Bunny's voice in his head was sweet, but blunt. It was like taking a club to the skull, from the inside.
The other message came in long after midnight. Bleary-eyed, Vinny floated out of his sleeping box and conjured the scrap of paper.
