I think that Zippie and I will have a nice long discussion when I get back from this trip she sent me on with the contracts. I don’t mind the money, that’s a real perk, what I do mind is the way that things just seem to be spread out from one end of Kalimdor to the other. Go to this place to pick up this ore and then go to another place to pick up some more so that I can fill my engineering contracts. Luckily for me, travel time is not a problem because I can just make my own portals to go back to wherever I choose. I suppose I ought to be thankful that she doesn’t have me traipsing to Pandaria to chase down the Boss’s sister for something or other – we still haven’t collected all of the money that she promised to pay back with interest that she borrowed before she went on her latest trip.
Right now I am spending a lot of my time in Orgrimmar with some of my buddies, which really shouldn’t please Zippie all that much because she knows how we all like to drink and sometimes just taunt the heck out of the mooks that are here in the city. No, I’m not going to get drunk enough to go moon Garrosh again and get thrown into jail, that was not a pleasant experience and almost got my butt sent to a labor camp.
One of the bonuses for the trip has been me finding a girlfriend of sorts. Her name Fizzap and she has beautiful blonde hair and is a goblin – can’t see me with any other kind actually. Anyway, she and I have been spending a lot of company together here in the slums of Orgrimmar, partying and just enjoying things as they come along. She has a great sense of humor and she really knows how to make money on her own – that’s my kind of woman. Anyway, I don’t mind the female company because it has been a long time since I have had a girlfriend, well, not since we had to leave Kazan. The only drawback that I can see that might get people upset with my relationship is the fact that she is a warlock.
Heck, I thought that Fizz was just another mage. I mean she knows a lot of the same stuff that I do and she can throw her magic around just like I do only hers seems to linger quite a bit longer. I couldn’t quite put my finger on the taint that seemed to surround things until I actually saw her transform when we were out in the Barrens together. Could have knocked me over with a feather when that came to pass. I’ll admit that it was a bit of a turn-off for a while, however, we talked about it and we’ve decided that we’re just not going to tell anyone what she is. I mean it could get a bit dicey when I decide to take her back to Silvermoon with me. You know, for all the magic that surrounds Silvermoon and the residual effects of the fel magic that seem to crop up now and again, those folks have little to no tolerance for warlocks. I’ve seen some things that have happened to warlocks in Silvermoon and I can tell you that none of it has been pleasant or I wouldn’t think it was.
I know that it’s nice to have Fizz along with me too when I’m out traveling, she’s a much better cook than I am and she’s someone that I can talk with. I haven’t told Zippie a thing about me seeing a girl because I know that she and Dooddah both would make a trip to Orgrimmar just to check things out. I know those two really complain to me about how much I drink and all that, however, I know that they get a bit jealous every now and then when they think I am not paying them enough attention. They have been like that since they were little girls and they latched onto their Uncle Zednick.
Let’s see, I’ve seen enough of the Stonetalon area to last me for a while and I swear those Thunder Lizards just seem to be drawn to me like a magnet. I’ve gotten zapped a few times and I will admit that it does get old after a while. Of course the mining is pretty good there even with the spiders and the Alliance wandering around like they owned the place. I have seen more humans in the last month and not as many Night Elves as I might have thought I’d see up there. Okay, I’ve had a few run-ins with the humans out there and it wasn’t because I started it. I know that they stomp around and think that they are all big, bad and awesome, however, they can’t keep up with a fast moving goblin mage. I can deal with the Night Elves, however, I do wish the humans would go back to Stormwind and they can take the Worgen with them.
I know that I hate to get into a running battle with a Worgen because they have some speed on them and I can move as fast as I want, even try to sneak away from where they are. If they are in their human form, which is bad enough, and then they are in their worgen form, well, let’s just say that they can smell me from a mile away. I’m sending the company a bill for the two robes that I have ruined doing their contract work for them and they had better pay up. No, I didn’t get hurt, just got some cloth torn and a couple of scratches from not blinking away fast enough.
I’ve got some contracts to fill where I have to get the materials from Desolace, Feralas and the Southern Barrens. I do wish the girl had gotten a bit more organized with stuff because I do want to go back to Silvermoon now and again. I like hanging out with my buddies where we can talk shop all we want and compare inventions, however, there is just something that makes me feel a bit more comfortable when I am in Silvermoon. Could be the house that we live in and I have a real bed to sleep in.
