Spades Slick cried out and roughly jerked away from Snowman. "What do you think you're doing?" he demanded, spinning around to face the female.
Snowman, unfazed, took a drag on her cigarette before saying. "I was trying to get your arms back into place or would you rather they hang at your sides like limp spaghetti?"
He frowned, looking down at his arms hanging uselessly at his sides. In truth he wanted to have full use of them again but he wasn't willing to risk it by having Snowman touch him.

Slowly he lifted his head, seeing that she was looking down at him with a rather annoyed expression. "Well, well, what have we here?" she said after a moment of silence.
