In which Simon loses his beloved hat

[For [personal profile] wontturntofoam]

If Simon had known the evening was going to end as it had, he'd never have gone to that damned moat. Of course, his hindsight was always much better than his foresight and there was nothing that could be done about it now. Or was there?

He'd stopped beside the familiar body of water with his usual intentions in mind-- pester the mermaid a bit, maybe get a story or two, and then be on his merry way. Scanning the waters, he didn't initially see his intended target and with a frown, he stooped down and picked up a handful of pebbles, flicking them aimlessly into moat and calling out in such a friendly tone of voice.

"Anyone home?" Flick. Flick. "You there?" Flick.

This only lasted as long as he had stones. Rather than picking up another handful, the golem clapped his hands on his hips and called out again. "I have something for you!"

Splash.

Splash.

Splash.

"What?"

Shrieky's holding an arm full of small stones, which he's been dodging and gathering and catching for the last few minutes, and glaring out at Simon. Simon, Mr. Story Hog Hat Keeper.

"What do you want? What did you bring me?"

He turns one of the stones over in his hand, contemplatively. Those are going to be flying your way soon if you don't give a satisfactory answer, Simon...
