Now see, this was shaking out much better than expected. Alex had a lava sword and everything, and maybe the Angel wouldn’t bother them. And now Elly was being useful too. She might even be able to learn something from this.

“Oh excellent, excellent. I won’t be playing of course, but I would love to watch and spend the night not here. Quailex, excellent lava-sword work, come join us and we’ll learn about some proper magic.”

I look over my newly lime toenails with some pleasure. Elodie is proving herself actually valuable, and I am thinking regrettably, that I will really be obligated to return the favor later.

[I’m accepting Elodie leading me into a supernatural situation. She gets a string, I get an XP.]
