Author's Summary: Jason accidentally forgets to tell Benny that if she puts on the nice bracelet he's just 'bought' for her, they'll become soulbonded. Possibly forever. And, er, maybe hear each other's thoughts. Possibly forever. Benny is not pleased. (Set around series 3 of the audio series.)
Characters/Pairings: Bernice Summerfield, Jason Kane, Braxiatel
Recc'ed Because: I feel bad for poor Benny, but I love the humor and snappy dialogue in this story. I am not overly familiar with the audios, but I know Benny enough to tell she is well in character, and aralias does a good job fleshing enough of the series details out in the story that it still works if you don't know much of the canon. Good intentions go awry in this story, but then again, when Braxiatel is involved, it's never easy to tell what the intentions really are.
Jason ducked as the flowerpot flew towards him. “I’m sorry!”
“I know!” Benny yelled, picking up another of Brax’s potted plants. “And that’s one of the things that makes me quite so angry, Jason. I don’t want to know how sorry you are!”
“I know,” Jason said. “Which I think is a bit rude, actu--” He ducked again and the second flowerpot smashed harmlessly against the wall.
“You’ve done plenty of really awful things during the time I’ve known you, Jason Kane, but I don’t think I’ve ever been so angry with you before.”
“Ah,” Jason said. “That’s not actually true, now, is it, Benny? Remember, I can hear your thoughts now, so I know you actually place this incident a paltry third after -”
“Stop that,” Benny said firmly. “No really. Stop it right now. The least you can do, if you’re not going to go and die loudly somewhere, is to keep my thoughts to yourself."
