Red: Don’t get me wrong though, this is still pretty weird for me. A week ago, I could hardly stand to be in the same room with a Keidran, and now I’m sitting right next to one having a casual conversation while her tail is hitting my leg.
Raine: O-oh! Sorry! I’ve always had trouble controlling that thing. But you know, I still consider myself human… I know I don’t look it right now, but I spent my whole life raised as such.
Raine: I’m still the same “Raine” you always knew.
Red: Oh, yeah, of course! I know, I’m just saying… it’s probably going to take me a while to get used to this. I know in my head who you are, but… seeing a Keidran, my body’s first reaction is still “enemy.”
Sythe: Yeah, I’ll say. He drew his sword on me three times during the night saying I had “finally turned on him.” But ya know, as much as I enjoy seeing Red actually question his actions for once, can we please focus on healing the girls? We’ve still got an assassin out there.
Raine: Right! Where is he, anyway? Why hasn’t that guy tried attacking us again?
Sythe: He doesn’t have to. He knows while there are two of us down, we can’t go anywhere. No point taking a risk and fighting us all at once when he can just wait it out. There’s only us three, and we can’t leave the girls alone, so we either split up or we starve.
Sythe: This guy is devious… a real professional. He’s probably watching us right now, just waiting for the perfect time to strike.
