It's drizzling outside. It looks like the clouds get way darker to the west, and the wind is moving east, so that'll be on top of us in a few hours.

There's not very many people outside in the city below. A few buildings still have lights.

I can still go out and find food, but I'm not hungry so I don't think she will be, either. Maybe later in the day. And, uh, I didn't see any kind of grass on the way up here, but I can keep an eye out!

It'd be for the best for you two to get a move on before the rain really comes down. If you wait, the rain'll be falling the entire trip down, instead of only some of the trip. Hopefully Gren won't be a giant grump 'cause you woke her up early.

Well, uh, Gren is probably going to be mad if I wake her up. But you're right, we should probably start moving as soon as we can.

Gren? Hey, Gren, wake up...
"Mmmf... Boaga?"
Yeah, Gren. Come on, we should get moving. It's going to start raining really hard soon, so we should get going...
"Damn it. Why did you wake me up? I was having a nice dream!"
I'm sorry! What, uh, what were you dreaming about?
"None of your business."
Okay, sorry, sorry. But we should really start going. Are you hungry?
Well, uh, maybe we should go hunting do that we don't get hungry later.

We hike down to the road again, down the curve far enough not to be seen by the city. Grennie doesn't stop being grumpy. Who should we, uh, ambush? What are we looking for, exactly?
No. 401388 ID: 369d34

The trick here is getting them to stick around long enough to say your piece without hurting them.

Wait around for a lone wagon or carriage heading towards the city. Gren'll step out a safe distance behind and shout that she'd like to ask some questions. Bo'll step out into the road at the same time, out of view around the curve. When they inevitably tear off for the city they'll stop when they see Bo. Bo reiterates that they just want to ask some questions and have them deliver a message to the city guard.

There's a good chance this won't work; They might abandon the wagon or cart, or try to go off-road. If it fails, head back down the road to another spot and try again. The important thing is not to harm or threaten anyone.
No. 401393 ID: a2fa74

The person in the robe. Don't ambush, just saunter up, say hello, and ask them if they could tell the city guards you intend to have a peaceful visit to the city.

Stay away from horses; they'll panic and something will get killed.

I think I have an idea.
Yeah, maybe we can wait for the people to thin out, so that you can talk to someone on a carriage or a wagon without scaring everyone else off?
"They'd run from me, Bo."
Okay, uh... I can wait up ahead in case they run from you.
"That might work. You're a lot less threatening than I am, anyway. With your little stutter and everything."

Once the road clears out I sneak up as best as I can. I'm not really built for this! But anyway no one sees me, and now I can't see Grennie. And, uh... I guess now I wait.

Apparently I don't have to wait long, though. I hear what sounds like Gren saying something kind of forcefully and loudly, and then someone on a cart being pulled by some animal comes very quickly around the corner. I jump out onto the road and the rider sees me for sure, but the cart isn't stopping!

Leave the injured man there. Moving him now could very well hurt him more.

Whatever you do, don't be aggressive or run towards the people. Tell Gren to walk off the road over to where you are. Call out that the cart driver is hurt and needs a healer. Then head away from the road, but stay in view. Gren can help you deal with that chunk of cart in your side once you're clear.

M-my wound? Oh... I hadn't noticed t-that... But, uh, I drag the man away from the cart and start to back away.

Gren, come here please!
Just-- come on!

She walks towards me, avoiding the wagon. The people on the road back off as she passes them. Once we're both a good distance away, I start to yell out to them.

I'm, uh, I'm very sorry about the wagon! I'll make up for it if I can!
"Bo, there's... there's something sticking out of you..."
But I think the man is hurt! Is anyone able to take care of him?
"Boaga, you're hurt. Let me see it!"

A few people hesitantly step toward the wagon. One person runs down the road toward the city. I'm, uh... I'm starting to hurt a lot more now.
No. 401879 ID: b4474c

Tell Gren to wait until you're away from the main road. You're tougher than whoever wrecked the wagon, and it's important to leave at least a not-bad impression.

Bo, this is serious. You've got chunks of wood stuck in your neck. That's something Gren can't fix. You're going to need a healer just as much as that cart driver soon. Lie down and move as little as you can, so the wood doesn't shift around. Hope that whoever comes will listen to you two and be merciful, but Gren should be ready to carry you away on her back.

N-no, it's not in my neck, it's, uh, just right above my shoulder. But... it hurts, and the wound looks dirty. I'm starting to feel a lot more than just that, though-- ow! My whole side is aching. I'm just going to... agh... kind of lower myself to the ground. J-just for a bit.

W-what's it look like, Gren?
"It's deep, Bo. I can pull them out if you want me to--"
Aaaaugh! D-don't touch it!

No. 402019 ID: b0d466

Probably better to leave it in, for now. If you try to pull it out Bo might faint or something and then you'll probably have to leave him.

You'll probably still have to leave him if he doesn't get moving, and the city's response is hostile.

Gren: Call out asking if there are any healers. Tell them you can pay.
Realize in the midst of panic and trauma that Bo has always been there for you, is clearly in love with you, and that you might actually love him too.
No. 402036 ID: 369d34

Keep the cauterization option as a last resort. You want cloth to press on the wound when the wood is removed, and strong alcohol to sanitize the gash.

Gren should head to the wagon wreckage, telling the people there this was an accident, the result of a stupid plan. Search the wagon, crates, and barrels for cloth or a tarp and alcohol. As a last resort Gren could demand the bystanders shirts and coats.
No. 402046 ID: b85f8c

Intentionally flipped the cart, when you have giant pieces of wood in your side? No way.

The pieces of wood are dirty, and Bo is developing an infection. They need to be removed. While heat can cauterize a wound, flame breath would cause serious damage to the surrounding area. What we need is to heat up something that's metal via fire breath, then press it to the wound so that ONLY IT is burnt.

"Okay, okay, maybe that isn't such a good idea."
Just-- please, could you go and see if-- nngh-- if there's any strong alcohol and cloth over in the wagon? The wood is dirty and I d-don't think I-- agh-- I could afford an infection right now!

The people crowding around the injured man give me uneasy glances as I pass by to look around the wreckage. I sift through the boxes for a while while Boaga glances between me and the road to the city.

Damn it! I found what smells like strong alcohol, but none of the boxes had any cloth. Just mostly trinkets and preserved food.

Ask if anyone's got cloth you can use, and explain what you're trying to do.
No. 402094 ID: 369d34

Directly applying fire to the wound is not cauterizing it, it's burning it, which would invite even more infection.

Take the alcohol. Sift the wreckage for a length of metal you could use in cauterizing, if it comes to that. A metal wheel rim or long pin used in the front axle truck could work.

If just applying pressure after cleaning the wounds with the alcohol doesn't staunch the bleeding, then cauterizing will be necessary. Heat the metal, hold the wound shut, and press the metal against it. There's still the threat of infection, but Bo won't bleed out.

I would rather avoid having to do anything with the people on the road. It looks like the driver is fully conscious now and is talking to them, though.

I pick up the alcohol and some rations, no matter how unappetizing they seem. I... I also take a particularly expensive-looking necklace. If anyone saw, then they're not saying anything. I pick up a discarded piece of metal that came off of the wagon on my way back to Bo.

No. 402196 ID: a83682

Drinking alcohol thins one's blood, and makes it less able to clot. That would make him bleed more. That is BAD. Don't give him alcohol to drink, just use it to sterilise the wound.
No. 402205 ID: 369d34

"I'm sorry Bo, but it's going to hurt whether I do anything or not. Please, let me try."

Don't give Bo any booze, it interferes with blood clotting, and you're going to need all you have to sterilize your hands and the wounds. You'd have to get him drunk to the point of passing out for that to work, anyway.

Try to stop the bleeding from the wounds with just hand pressure first, before resorting to cauterization. When you pull the wood out, clean and sterilize your hands in the booze, then reach into the wound to pull splinters and any other foreign bodies out, then wash it down with the alcohol. You don't want to leave anything like that behind if you have to cauterize.

I pour some of the alcohol over my claws. I... I just realized how difficult this is going to be.

Boaga yelps as I start pull out the pieces of wood. I go slowly, and even though they're only a few inches deep it seems like forever. But once they're out, his wounds start bleeding a lot more! I panic and try holding them shut, but due to the fact that there's two of them and claws don't make good graspers, I don't accomplish much. I pour a good amount of alcohol over the wound and go for the iron and start to heat it up with my fire.

It takes a minute for it to get glowing, while Boaga watches me with an expression of terror. By the end I'm light headed, but it's ready. I balance the cooler end between my claws and move in. Boaga screams in pain and involuntarily thrashes when the iron touches the larger wound, causing more burns than is necessary.

Lay down next to Bo and place your hand over his. Tell him you're deeply sorry for getting him caught up in your ill-prepared quest for vengeance; You didn't even think he would get hurt, and that just shows he deserves a far better friend than yourself.

Bo's not going anywhere for a while, and almost certainly there are guards coming from the city. Abandoning him is out of the question, and fighting all the guards could very well be beyond your capability. Unfortunately, unless you can carry Bo away on your back, you're going to have to show that you're not hostile and cooperative, and hope the guards aren't the shoot-first-ask-questions-later type.

Ask the crowd to relay your apologies to the wagon driver for causing this mess, that it was all because of a dumb plan gone awry, and you'll make it up to him somehow, just as Bo said.

You're not bleeding anymore. Do you still want the alcohol?

I help him to drink what's left in the barrel. It was about half full, which is probably a bit too much for him. But if there's a time he's ever needed it, now is that time. I notice the crowd forming behind us.

Give us some room.

They back off, almost stumbling over themselves.

And... and tell the driver we're sorry. We'll make it up to him, somehow.

I turn back to Bo. He looks like he's not in as much pain as before. Even a little tipsy, maybe. He never did handle his liquor well.

Hey, I'm really sorry about that.
"It's okay, Gren..."
No, it's not! I never wanted you to get hurt. I'm sorry about making you come with me. Y-you deserve better than me.

Beo left without saying when or if he would return, and hasn't even bothered to find out if you're ok or let you know what's been going on. He is very clearly not in love with you.

Oh, Gren. As much as you wish you could leave, you can't leave Bo alone in his condition. Even in his inebriated state, talking with Bo right now would be for the best. Start with asking how long he's loved you, and work from there.

Perhaps when this personal quest is over with, you could start a new quest to find Beodox and nail down if he loves you like you do him. 'Cause after what you've been through, waiting for a love that doesn't love you would be tragic.

You should probably take Bo back to the cave. There's too much commotion right now to do anything productive in town, and he needs rest.

Oh, he looks so dejected. I-it just breaks my heart to make him so sad.

The guard is going to know they're facing dragons, so there's going to be loads of archers and crossbowmen, and maybe mages. Both of you are going to be big fat targets standing out in the open. Get Bo up and move into cover in the rocky area you came from. Either have him lean against you for support, hold his weak side up with one arm, or carry him on your back.

On the way to the rocks, pass by the injured wagon driver, and give him back that necklace you took. Get his name and tell him that you'll find a way to make it up to him for all of this. That'll make a impression.

Once you get Bo and yourself in cover, watch and see who's been sent from the city. You might still be able to talk to them from the safety of the rocks, but don't be surprised if their reply is arrows.

Bo tries and fails to stand on his own. I help him up and support him. He keeps his head turned away from me. I stop by the wagon driver, who is sitting up and looking around.

This is yours.
"...Thank you."
What's your name?
I'm very sorry about all of this, Vasile. I'll find a way to make up for what we've done.
"Oh, there is no need. That one saved my life! What is his name?"

I help Boaga climb into the rocks above the road. We lie there for a minute or two. Boaga is barely keeping awake. He... he hasn't said a single word to me.

I see a group of armored men come around the bend. There's about... ten of them. Most of them are holding crossbows. One of them is at the head of the rest. They see the wreckage, but they haven't spotted us yet. We can probably slip away unnoticed if we needed to.

I push Bo out of sight. The leader of the group walks up to the wagon driver and they share a brief conversation at the end of which the driver points up toward my hillside. I guess that's my cue. Stepping out from cover, I bellow my request.

Most of them are startled by my yell. One of them shoulders his crossbow and aims, but is stopped by the leader, whom then takes several steps forward.

Again, the leader discusses my answer with his party.
"We have not seen any man that fits your description. There may be someone else who has, however; We do not handle things such as that. We cannot help your friend, but there are healers within the walls."

Soon the city is in sight. The guards on the walls are visibly alarmed, and remain so despite seeing our escort. It takes a few words from our, ah, guide to calm them down. Apparently he hold some position of power. The gates are lifted for us.

We find ourselves in the center of a massive crowd. Boaga is close to panicking and I am admittedly a bit afraid. Neither of us have seen this many people before!

The crowd is silent for a moment as waves of awe ripple through them. A few start yelling, trying to grab our attention, and soon most of the crowd is roaring. Boaga lowers his head seemingly in an attempt to hide. I inform our guide that he is stressed, wounded, and afraid, and that he needs to get away from the crowds and find a place to rest. The man tells us that he will try, and motions us to follow him in a different direction before explaining, through the roar of the crowd, that their ruler is busy at the moment anyway.

A few people in the crowd catch my attention.

"Dragon! Dragon, bless my child!"

"Beware, Dragon! I bring you a warning!"

There is also a child directly to my left, completely silent. He's staring at me, completely in awe.

What's this warning?
"I have seen it, Dragon. All paths you may take will lead you to nothing but sadness."
"No matter the choices you make, you doom those around you!"
"That's enough out of you!"

"Our lord will be with you in a while. He is out conducting business at the moment but assuredly is very excited to meet with you. If you require anything, there is a servant posted outside of your door. Good day."

He leaves, and a woman comes through.

It's hard to tell, but Boaga seems to be feeling the extent of his wounds. I'd imagine that being hit by a wagon and having your wounds burned shut would take a lot out of you. Though... I don't think my rejection of his, um, feelings helped any... B-but that's not something I want to think about right now.

I am Lord Grentonis and this is Boaga. I would like enough water for both of us and for you to answer a few questions after you bring that.

That is good. Where do travelers in this city stay?
"Well, uh, we don't get many travelers at all, but they usually stay at one of the inns."
Thank you. Now...

I give her the description of the man and ask her if she's see anyone like him around.

"Oh... I'm so very sorry. I shouldn't pry."
It is simply something that I wish to keep private. I hope you understand.
"I do. We all have our secrets, I suppose."
This 'Gailegh' intrigues me. He wants to see me?
How would I meet with him?
"Well, he's conducting business with a friend of his. But he's asked to see you as soon as that's concluded, if you're willing! So in an hour and a half, if you want, I can get some of the guard to guide you to his hall."
Has Gailegh been... out of the city in the last few days?
"Well, he got back from a mission of diplomacy a week ago, but he's been in the city since then, conducting meetings."

There is a knock on the door, and after a second a man walks through. He is dressed in a plain robe and is carrying a satchel.

"Hello? I-- oh, hello, uh, dragon. I-I heard there was someone hurt that I was to attend to?"
Yes, in the corner over here.
"...the other dragon?"

He hesitantly makes his way over to Boaga, who is either fast asleep or trying to shut out the world around him. I give him a poke in the side.

Boaga, hey. Turn over so the healer can see your wound.

Bo slowly and painfully rolls over. He avoids looking at me. When the healer sees his wound, he gives a small gasp.

"What happened to you?"
He was impaled by a few errant pieces of wood after a collision with a wagon. I removed the wood to the best of my ability, and had to burn his wound shut with a hot iron to prevent the bleeding.
"...Well, that may not have been the best thing to do, to be honest. I'm not all that familiar with, uh, dragon anatomy, I think the muscle is torn through. The cauterization didn't help anything, but you probably kept him from bleeding to death."

He removes a flask from his satchel and pours a bit into the wound. Boaga winces.

Stop! He's gone through enough pain.
"I'm sorry, but I have to. The wound is dirty and he will get very sick if I don't."

After washing out the wound, the man holds his hands over it and mutters something under his breath. The wound is enveloped by a blue mist and is closed.

"I've sealed it, but I can't do much for the underlying damage. He needs to rest for a while, while keeping well fed. Try to keep movement to a minimum. Walking might be fine, as long as he doesn't overdo it."

So it didn't help anything, it just SAVED HIS LIFE.

It didn't so much help the healing as much as it just made him stable and stopped him getting worse. In a medical sense, it's accurate.

forget about semantics and thank the healer.

too bad you lack anything to reward him with. perhaps a promise will do, however. ask for his name, I'm sure a little amount of money for you is a big amount of money for him, and he deserves it for possibly having saved Bo's life. plus it'd help people be less hostile towards dragons.

Say that you didn't expect you'd have access to a healer any time soon, and Bo was bleeding around the wood. At the time, it seemed like the right thing to do, but you admit you're no healer. Thank the healer for his time, and check on how Bo's doing.

The man leaves. I turn my attention to Bo. His eyes are half-closed. It's pretty clear that he's not really paying attention to anything at all. What should I say to him?

"Um, excuse me, miss Grentonis. If you'll let me, I have other things I need to do. There'll be guards out front. I'll be back in an hour or so to take you to our Lord if you want, but before I leave is there anything else you need, or...?"

You're sorry for cruelly pushing him away when he professed his love. But what you're most sorry for, is hurting him. That is inexcusable, and you will understand if he doesn't ever forgive you. All you can say is you're sorry, and that will never be enough.

I can't imagine how this would have gone without you.
But if you stay with me, you might get hurt more and I don't want that to happen to you. It's okay if you want to go back home. I... I won't try to stop you f-from leaving me.

You can't take Bo with you in this condition, Gren. If you want revenge, you're probably going to have to go on without him. Dragging him around is going to get him killed, at best.

if you don't feel attraction to Boaga you don't feel attraction to him. its unfortunate that you don't return his feelings but there is not much you can do about that. for now at least you might want to stick together, but after you deal with the knight you might want to consider spending some time apart so he can work though his feelings and move on.

And you, girl, who has only thought explicitly of revenge for the past few days as your own friend, in a similar situation, has thought only of you and doing things for you?

You yourself have been close-minded to kindness and love in your trauma, who says Beodox is immune? Is he thinking of you now? Your eggs? Or maybe it could be his horde or even his simple stomach? Where are these doubts coming from? They're coming from deep inside your mind. You're conflicted, and this weighs you down worse than the crime done to you mere days ago. You may not only seek revenge against your attacker, but your loneliness.

It wouldn't be right to if he doesn't feel up to it. You'll head back to your quarters and ask, and have Miss Bentrant relay his choice.

Oh, for the love of... Where to begin...
He is a skilled mage, but of unknown ability. We don't know if he can teleport or block dragon-fire. He was out on a diplomatic mission, but we don't know exactly when, how long, or to where. As a lord, he's presumably rich, but how he spends his money, and what he owns, is unknown. We don't know if the rapeknight came to this city; The clear trail dried up at the fork in the road, and we guessed at a direction. The kiss on the paw is odd, but the guy could just be an inveterate flirter, and really does like all creatures. And that servant lady, Aleise, could have told him you were female after you told her.
He's not off the suspect list, but Gren's going to need much more evidence before accusing, or outright attacking, the lord and mayor of a city.
No. 408264 ID: b85f8c

No, this guy isn't the rapeknight.
>"Well, he got back from a mission of diplomacy a week ago, but he's been in the city since then, conducting meetings."

He's been in town all week. However, his 'friend' he was meeting today is VERY likely to be the rapeknight, as it would not be unusual for a knight to be friends with a noble. Plus, as we've seen he LIKES dragons, and friends share interests, and he would have told this guy by now what he did. Like a "I tapped that" sort of thing. Before we agree to anything, ask if his business friend shares his perspective on the beauty of dragons.

If the answer is yes, we need to take boaga and leave. A knight under the protection of a noble is far beyond our reach. On our way out, take aside that lady servant that was dealing with us, and confide in her. In fact, see if she's willing to take payment to poison the "business friend" if this turns out to be the case.

I can't help but notice your.. Eccentricities, human.

"Mm. Many would not use so polite a word, but my philosophy has never produced any major problems. I act in the best interests of my people, above all else."

Your philosophy, that's your idea that everything is beautiful?

"It is."

Hm. Well, for all your courtesy, I'm sorry, but unless you think I can shape-shift into a beautiful human woman from dragon stereotypes, this is kinda weird and awkward. Are you such a flirt with all the ladies, or just those who breathe fire?

"Ha! Only the ones that give me the time of day! "

You amuse me, human. I shall attend your dinner, but I cannot speak for Boaga. His opinion is his own, and I will not force his claw.

"Nor should you. In five hours - that is acceptable? - I shall be waiting. Do attend, if you wish to do so. Aleise, please take care of our honored guests, and to you, Miss Grentonis.. Good evening."

"Mhuwha? Grennie? What are you doing on candy-buffalo island?"

"Candy-buffalo.. What? No. Boaga, do you wanna go to dinner with me and.. And some nobleman?"

"Dinner? Sure! I'll try t' lay off th' buffalo. You want some?"

I think I'm good.

"Suit y'self. Zzzzz.."

Aleise, do you know where Berick's house is?

"Y-yes, ma'am. W-would you like to go there?"

Hm? Is it close by?

"N-no, but you can go anywhere in the city. Th-that is i-if you want to! And, um, you have to have guards. F-for your protection!"

Ask if Aleise could arrange for a wagon to take Bo to Lord Galiegh's home come dinnertime, since he shouldn't be walking. You, however, would like to visit an alchemist and get a sample of that poison tested. It's been days already, and you don't want to risk it decaying so far it can't be identified. Though, at the very least you want to take a walk; It's feeling rather confining in here, and it's not every day you get to see a city from the inside.

Boaga's so adorable when he's sleep and blood deprived.

Lets not make this a recurring thing.

The poison's probably all but lost any active potency now after the last few days. They had to weather the rain among other things.

Aaaanyway. If you really wanna bring Boaga along see if they can indeed offer a wagon, possibly covered.

The poison? Well-- Oh, no. No! Damn it! I left it in the ground when I interrogated that one human! How could I forget-- Agh, maybe a description could do, if I find someone.

If you don't mind me asking, has Lord Galiegh always so... accepting? I get the feeling the citizenry are rather mixed on his views.
"Well, um, everybody knows that he's very, uh, nice to women. Most people are fine with it by now, and the ones who aren't usually keep quiet about it. But, um, it be weird to some people that he's being like that to a dragon."
Hm. I'll still accept his invitation. Would it be possible to get my companion-- ah, friend, a wagon in which to ride? He shouldn't do much walking.
"Um... Yeah, I think I can do that"
Thank you. I think I would like to take a walk.

...So Lord Galiegh likes the ladies. All the ladies... That's... Yeah, that pushed him up a smidge on the suspect list. Still, he looks and acts way more like the type to woo a lady into bed than to resort to rape.

It's the child from the crowd. I admit, I am terrible with human faces. Why can't they have distinctive head and snout shapes? Then it'd be much easier to tell them apart.

A satchel is a good idea but I do not like the fact that it would go around my neck, although it would be difficult to reach anywhere else. Perhaps we could find someone here who I can consult.

I plant myself in front of the child. A few people walking along give me a wide berth. Aleise looks concerned when I bring myself close to him.

I noticed you before, in the crowd. You seemed quite awestruck. I'm curious; Is there something you wished to say to me? Or ask? I've got the time for it now, so go right ahead.

That probably was an accident, or a reflex response to a dragon. If it was intentional, the guy's an idiot. Either way, it's not worth attacking him. Though, in the future, remember to knock and announce yourself before sticking your head into any other shops.

The man turns away and runs deeper into the building. It's then I notice another man behind the counter. He sends a string of curses toward the coward. Once he's out of sight, the man behind the counter turns back toward me.

"I'm sorry, I'm so sorry. I guess he didn't hear that we're hosting a dragon. Are you okay?"
Yes. It is a scratch. Has that man attacked your customers before?
"No, he's... he's always been a bit skittish. Plus, that was a new blade. I doubt he would have attacked you if he hadn't been holding it. I'm sorry, but you dragons are scary to most people."

I describe the man's armor to him, and ask several questions.

"Well, chain is a common kind of armor. It's all over the place. It's fairly expensive, however. It's hard to nail down who made it without having it in front of me, too. The horned helmet, however, isn't common at all. It's impractical, even. More for intimidation than anything else."
Thank you. Tell the man back there that I will forgive him if he apologizes to me.
"I-I'm sorry!"
To my face.

There's no response.

"Good luck with that. He's always been a coward. I'd appreciate it if you didn't have him arrested just yet. He still needs to pay me."

What do I do now?
No. 411375 ID: 369d34

Let the coward go, without charges. You've got better things to do, and it was no more than a scratch. Head over to the tailor to get something for the dinner.

Since it's short notice, and you're definitely not their regular kind of customer, choose something simple. A wide silk or satin scarf, wrapped around the base of you neck, would be easy to make, and workable with your large paws. Have them choose a color that goes well against your scales.
As for any bags or satchels, that's more suited for a leather-crafter. Whoever makes saddlebags and such gear for horses would be a place to start, but that's for another day.

After that, head to the jewelers. Once again, nothing fancy or custom made. A pair of large, wide simple gold bracelets, or matched wide necklaces, that would fit over your horns. Those would be easy for you put on and take off, since it would not involve clasps.

No jewelry. If we get anything to wear to the dinner it should be simple, and perhaps even only temporarily. We are a guest here and they are giving us free stuff, but not everyone here likes us.

I think that the very idea of wearing clothes is ridiculous but I suppose it wouldn't hurt to look presentable for the meal.

The rain is back, stronger than ever. The lady at the shop looks surprised and a little terrified when I inform her that I want to purchase something, and will need it in less than 5 hours. I am getting sick of that look.

No. 412241 ID: fdad59

Something scarf- or shawl-like would be simple enough to get in less than five hours, and Gren can put it on and take it off with her own paws.

This is a good start, but lower it down so it's around the base of her neck. Ask the tailor to loop one end back around and triple stitch it, so Gren can feed the other end through without messing with knots. Get the other end weighted so it won't slip out of the loop easily. Then it only needs to be looped around Gren's neck once, or even not at all, if she wants the end to stick down more.

As for color and material, request a color that will go well against your scale color, or black, if she doesn't have something that matches. Silk or satin would look good, but not be sturdy. Ask for a material that's sturdier, but won't look too bad.

His shelves are rather bare. Comment that he's rather low on merchandise right now; Was there a run on the store, or is it supply problems? Well, no matter, you're here to ask some questions, if he'll answer them.

First off, describe the magical abilities of the rapist; The teleport and flame shield. Ask how much skill and ability a person would need to do that. Also ask if those magical effects could have been enchanted into an item he was wearing or using, and how expensive that would be.

Next, describe the poison as best you can, after confirming he knows about alchemy.

Finally, ask about the use of dragon parts in magical devices and concoctions. If he gets nervous, say you're not accusing him of anything, you're just looking for information. Ask what're the most valuable parts, and if dragon eggs are valuable.

He remains silent until he sees the humans accompanying me, at which point he breathes a sigh of relief.

"Oh... I'm sorry, I thought... Well, I don't see a dragon every day... Uh, most of the stock is in the back room. It wouldn't make sense to keep everything up front."
I suppose.

He tucks a pipe into his robe.

I need information.
"About what?"
The difficulty of certain magic. Namely, a short-range self-teleportation spell and a shield capable of blocking dragonfire.
"Well... The difficulty of a teleportation is proportional to how far one was teleported."
How about four meters?
"So a 'blink', then? It's of moderate difficulty. You'd have to be somewhat trained already to be able to effectively utilize it. Theoretically anyone could do it, but they'd stand a fair chance of appearing halfway through a wall."
And the shield?
"It sounds like a simple ward, but to hold against dragonfire... Again, the wielder would have to be moderately skilled to do so. Might I ask why you need this information?"
"... I didn't just doom some poor person with that, did I?"
We will see. Do you know anything about alchemy?
"Not much, I'm afraid. I only specialize in magic. Our alchemy expert is out in the field gathering ingredients."
I see. Then I'd assume that you wouldn't know much about the use of dragon parts in anything magical.
"Only rumors. We haven't had the chance to do much research ourselves, you see."
Of course. But people would still pay for, say, dragon eggs?
How much?
"Probably a few hundred coins for one. I really can't say..."

Do ask when the alchemy guy will return, and thank the man for his time.

Well, it looks like you or your children won't have to worry about posses of dragon-hunters and egg-snatchers. One less thing to worry about in the world.

Can't think of anything to do, other than perhaps poking your head in the jewelry store and freaking out the proprietor.

Aleise, does Gailegh get upset when a lady rejects his advances?
"If he has, I've never seen it."
How does he react, then?
"Well, you can tell he's disappointed, but he won't force it too hard. Ladies don't reject him often, though!"

I guess there isn't much else for me to do, then. Boaga is probably awake. He didn't seem very lucid when I told him about the meal, so it might be a good idea to fill him in on that and what little I've learned so far. He could wait, though, if I need to do something else.

We walk back to the room. Bo is awake.

Hey, Bo.
"...Hey, Gren."
I did some walking around.
"I can tell."
Do you remember me telling you about our meal invitation?
We're dining with Gailegh-- Uh, the lord of this city-- in about four hours. Do you think you can make it there?
"Y-yeah, I think..."
Okay... I can get you a wagon to ride in, if you're not feeling up to it.
"I think 'll be okay."
I got some information on the-- the man we're trying to find. He has to be somewhat wealthy and well-skilled in magic. So that'll make it easier for us to find him. Maybe we could ask around the more wealthy people in this city. They must have some sort of lead. But--
"Why don't you love me?"

No. 413828 ID: b9e291

No. 413830 ID: a2fa74

"You're very dear to me, but Beo has that spot in my heart."
No. 413831 ID: b85f8c

There's nothing wrong with Bo. In fact, you've been somewhat impressed with him recently. You just haven't given up on Beo.
No. 413836 ID: b9e291


"I have to... but Beo... " and then you kiss Boaga. On the lips.
No. 413866 ID: c891d3

Well we certainly can't help you answer that question.
No. 413888 ID: b0d466

That's a much harder question to answer than "Why do you love [Name Here]?"

There's nothing WRONG with Bo--you really enjoy his company and friendship. You do like him--as your friend. But for whatever reason, the romantic attraction isn't there. You simply don't like him amorously, and you really can't provide a concrete reason why--that's just the way love is.
No. 413915 ID: c6ec33

Awkwardly explain that he's pretty much your best friend, but that you still haven't given up on Beo yet. If Beo turns out to be a dick, things might change, but until then, he shouldn't get the idea that just by being awesome to you, sticking with you, helping you in your time of need, keeping your secrets... dammit. Blush and hug Boaga, and tell him that he's one of the best dragons you know, but that you're still trying to figure things out with Beo and you would feel terrible if you gave up on him without finding out why he left, what he's been doing, and whether or not he'll come back.
No. 413918 ID: 5029d1

he's a great dragon, the only thing holding you back is you still like beo, because... why?
No. 413928 ID: 9718f3

Everything would be so easy if you loved Bo. You wouldn't be lonely anymore, he would be happy, your children would have two adult dragons in their life since Beo probably isn't ever coming back.

But do you feel that way? Can you feel that way? Forget Beo when making your decision. Even if he really did have to go off and do whatever he's doing, you likewise have to take care of yourself; for your sake, for the sake of your children, and for the sake of Beo himself, as surely he would want what is best for you in all things. The question remaining is: is loving Bo what is best for you? Is it what you want? Is it what you feel? As much as you may not want to betray Beo, or hurt Bo's feelings, that's all that really matters in the end.
No. 414028 ID: fdad59

You just don't know why you don't love Bo. He's been a great friend, stood by you in your time of need, and you'd do anything to help and protect him, but when it comes to love... The "spark," that mysterious amorous element, is missing. It's something you can't even begin to explain why.

Though, you might know the reason Bo fell for you. Before you met him, he led a lonely, fearful existence. When you found him in your territory, he fully expected he'd die at your hands, but that didn't happen. Something he didn't think would ever happen happened: You were kind to him. You showed compassion. You let him stay. To someone who'd been beaten down their whole life, it's beyond words. That it was done by a beautiful lady dragon, it's no wonder Bo immediately fell in love.
No. 414123 ID: 6e44d2

Because you really suck at making yourself seem an appealing mate. Also, seduction. Seriously, man. Get your shit together. You can't make a woman love you through guilt and pity. What kind of a relationship is that?

"You said to wait until a better time. We've got four hours. This is the best time we'll ever get."
"Please, Gren. I... I just want to know why."
It's-- It isn't anything wrong with you, Bo. You're my best friend, and I really do like having you around. You've been great to me, helping me and staying with me w-when I was being a bitch-- Y-you're one of the best dragons I know, and I'd do anything to help and protect you too, a-and sometimes the little voice in the back of my head tells me t-that I should love you and that it's what would be best for both of us, but... but Bo, I can't give up on Beodox. I'd feel terrible. I can't betray his love.

Can I ask why you believe Beodox is coming back? What did he say, what did he do to earn such loyalty from you? I hardly believe monogamy among dragons is common. You're big powerful beasties, why should you lower yourselves into following the human concept of monogamy? And even if I'm wrong about dragons being above monogamy, why Beodox? What did he do that is worth your devotion besides sleep with you and make you a mother? Did he whisper sweet nothings into your ear? Call you beautiful? Call you his sun and stars? Any man can say these things and not mean it.
What makes this charming male dragon so much of an ideal mate, so trustworthy and NOT just one of those dumb men that love sleeping around and leaving when the going gets tough? Or do you not want to accept the fact that the father of your children is some sleazy pile of scales going around banging every whore he sees and that you're dumb enough to sleep with such a sleazebag? No, of course not, there's no way you'd sleep with a pathetic pussyhound. Just no way.
No. 414141 ID: e3f578

IF you want Bo off your back, just say you don't have the strength to love anybody anymore. Because, face it, you might end up a single dragon mother who was raped by some lowly human in her own home. How could you form a new relationship with someone else after that? That you're loyal to Beodox because you wouldn't have to put any effort into loving him because you already do. You just can't fall in love with just anybody, you can't control your heart, especially when you've been victimized and any chance of getting justice is getting slimmer by the minute.

Your temper will flare, so sit your tail down, clamp your mouth shut, and let Bo say his piece.

You're better than this, and if you really want to be with me, you'll understand that I need to know for *certain* what I mean to Beo before I dump him.

Would you *really* want to be with me if I gave up on my last boyfriend so easily because my friends didn't like them?"
No. 414341 ID: 9c3f80


"Bo, I can see that you are frustrated, but what proof do you have? Trying to convince me that my boyfriend was using me without any sort of real proof wont make me think better of you. You're better than this, Bo. If you really love me, you'll understand that I need to be certain of Beo's feelings towards me before I can dump him. After all, would you *really* want to be with me if I gave up on my last boyfriend so easily? That I threw it away because of baseless accusations and pressure from my friends?"

I just edited what the quoted said. either/or. Maybe add something about if he hasn't the proof that Beo has done the same as the knight we seek, he shouldn't be accusing him of it. That its hard enough already dealing with it happening once, and being so insensitive to suggest Beo did it too, that it happened twice, with no real proof, is not what a friend does, let alone someone who claims to love you.

Extricate yourself from Gren long enough to find Aleise and warn her that Gren may not be in an emotional state to attend dinner tonight, and you won't leave her side if she doesn't. Ask if the dinner could be postponed to tomorrow in that case.

I can go instead of you, if you want me to--
"N-no, no. He's expecting me."
Okay... maybe we could do it tomorrow instead?
"But-- I want to speed this up, Bo. I don't like being here a-and every second that we spend not looking for the-- the m-man, it gets more and more likely that w-we won't find him at all..."

She sighs.

"I-- I guess I'll t-try to get a hold of myself... I just don't know, Bo..."

I find the human woman outside of the room. She looks a bit stressed.

"Oh--! U-um, hi!"
Gren's-- she's, uh, she's not feeling well, and so she might not want to come to the meal, and I'm not leaving her side if she doesn't.
"Aw, that's sweet of you... w-wait, you were yelling at each other not too long ago--"
I know, she just... she... s-she needs me right now.

I guess we've got a lot of time to spend.
No. 416026 ID: 132b99

ask if she knows anyone that would know where some other dragons are, are looking for one in particular, just to set something straight,
No. 416029 ID: fdad59

Apologize a little for all the stress and trouble that you two just being here has caused.

There's probably people in the city who keep track of dragon locations and sightings, as a service for travelers and caravans. Ask if there are, and if so, give a physical description of Beodox so they can check where he has shown up.

Once you're back with Gren, carefully ask if you have her permission to recount what happened to her to Lord Gailegh, if she can't bring herself to do so.
No. 416032 ID: a2fa74

Sounds like a plan.
Then go back and resume cuddling with Gren. Physical contact is important when people are distraught.
No. 416107 ID: 9718f3

If she's feeling up to talking, you can talk about the good old days. You've got to have some funny stories, right? Maybe something silly or embarrassing that you did. Keep it lighthearted and don't mention Beodox.

Also, make sure you are comfortable. We really don't want you staying in an awkward position for an extended period of time and having your wound heal wrong.

Hey, um, your city wouldn't happen to keep track of dragon sightings, would it?
"I can't say for certain, but the guards might have something like that."
Okay. Uh, by the way, I'm sorry about all the stress and trouble we've caused you.
"It's fine, it's okay. It's my job."

I limp back inside and lay down with Gren, making sure that I'm comfortable. She- hrk!- w-wraps herself around me, pressing me a-against her. I-I can tell she's started crying again.

"H-hey, Bo..."
I could t-tell the guy we're meeting your story i-if you don't want t-to do it yourself.
"N-n-no, I... I should be the one to do it..."

Stroke her back as well.
If you get an erection then try to hide it. You'll fail, obviously, but the attempt means something.
If she wants to have sex then refuse. Say she's not thinking clearly, and you would never take advantage of her. If she tries to force you then resist as much as you can without hurting her.
If she succeeds, then shower her with affection and make it clear she and it means a lot more to you than just sex. If she becomes upset over raping or attempting to rape you then tell her you really, really wanted to have sex with her, but you were too worried she couldn't give meaningful consent like this.

Regardless, you want her to feel safe in your arms.

Keep up the casual conversation! If it gets too awkward maybe use your wound as an excuse to get her to back off a bit. If she IS coming onto you, this is basically the worst time for it ever. She's been on an emotional roller coaster the last few days, and the last hour or so especially.

She may have also simply taken your assurance that her not loving you is okay as meaning that embracing like this wont bother you. She could simply be looking for comfort. Not enough info to act, really.

RESIST! Just go and get some Pentcave Monthly after this! If this teasing goes on for much longer you're gonna go nuts and lose any ability to resist! Stop this before it gets worse Bo!

"Hey, Gren, I love hugs and everything but uhhh I'm getting uncomfortable. Like, this hurts in ways you can't even imagine."

Well, unless you're hoping for something more romantic, you could let her keep going and see what happens, Gren seems to have something in mind. Otherwise you could mention something to make her back off. Maybe something like "That armoured guy".

Or you could totally let her do her thing. She's not drunk or anything, it's cool.

take advantage of her now and she'll probably hate you for it later. I'm talking about long-term hate here.
No. 416447 ID: fdad59

Ask her, point blank, why she's actively working to turn you on. You thought she wasn't in to you. You know the both of you will feel horrible later if you go through with what you think is coming, so say "no," and break away.
No. 416450 ID: b9e291

Don't say "no". Don't talk about how this is "wrong". Just hold her claw away from you and extricate yourself. The idea is not to escape her, but to entice her. As your physical superior she could pin you down and have her way with you, but if that happens she'll be OK. She is acting on her fears that you will do so to her, just like the last two, so if you can be strong and hold back, without lying to her that you don't want it, then you'll be able to alleviate her fears, and that will bond you and her far more than a quick romp in the heat of the moment. Just think how much better it will be when it happens again, and again. Third time's the charm. If she gets upset, tell her you're holding back because you care about her and love her.

No. 416473 ID: b85f8c

Why, Bo? Don't you like her? Why is it making you uncomfortable, exactly? Is it the suddenness? Or are you just afraid of scaring her with your MASSIVE DRAGON DONG? Warning her that if she keeps touching you like this that you'll get an erection seems appropriate if it's the latter. Simply asking her why she's so affectionate would work for the former.

Don't panic. Calm down. She is your friend and you can talk to her. She's not going to rape you.

I stay quiet and try to cuddle her as best as I can. It's hard for me to, though, without hurting my shoulder more so I end up curling my tail over her back. It's kind of an awkward position!

A long time goes by. Gren goes back and forth between crying and just holding me. She's quiet when I realize it's almost time for the meal.

Grennie, hey.
"...y-yeah, Bo?"
I think it's time to go. Are you gonna be okay?
"I t-think so."

We're escorted into some kind of marketplace. Not many people are out, probably because of the rain, but most of them leave pretty fast once we get there. Gren goes up to a window and is handed some kind of long dark blue cloth which she then wraps around her neck with a little bit of trouble. I still don't understand. I guess I should complement her, though, right?

That, um, that looks good with your scales, Gren.
"Thank you! You should try wearing it."
Um, n-no, no thanks.
"Come on, just once."
It’s okay, I--
“It’d look good on you!”
“Come on, stand still!”

We get to the front door of the palace and are lead through a lot of tall hallways until we come into a huge room lit up with a bunch of candles. There's a big table in the center and a bunch of people are running around putting things on it. A bearded man wearing nice clothes and a cape comes out of another door. He notices us and throws his arms out. I guess this is the lord?

"My lady! I am glad you could make it. I see you have brought your friend as well. Please, both of you, have a seat! Dinner should arrive shortly."

He motions to two large comfy-looking cushions on one side of the table. On the other side is a normal chair. We all sit down, while the servants do the stuff that they're doing. One really stands out to me. It's a large thing with bent legs, sharp-looking head, and light brown fur all over its body. It's carrying a tray of silverware and, uh, it seems to have collars connected by chains around its arms and neck. I-- I've never seen anything like it before.

Thank you for inviting us. This is my friend, Boaga.
I have to say, I am thankful your palace is large enough to accommodate us. I was afraid we would have had to have this meal in the courtyard.
"Oh, but that would make me a poor host! I would never dream to demean you in that manner, my lady."
Of course. Might I ask what will be served?

He motions a servant over to the table.

"What is the selection today?"
"Beef seasoned with black pepper in peppercorn gravy, slow roast pork, quartered red potatoes in butter and rosemary, roasted spinach-stuffed tomatoes, a salad of romaine hearts, spinach, and diced cucumber with vinegar dressing, and a selection of fine liquors, sir."
"That sounds excellent. Thank you."
Yes, thank you.

I am not sure at all what most of that meant. I assume it's good, though, because this man eats it. I notice the thing that is holding Boaga's attention. He looks like he's thinking about trying to talk to it.

If you do not mind me asking, what is that strange creature?
"A gift, from the leader of a nation in dusty plains far to the south. I do not know much about it, other it doesn't seem to speak any language of man and does not seem to be intelligent. It seems to be somewhat adept at serving, if nothing else."
I see.
"My lady, I admit that I am intrigued by you, and I wish to know more about you. I hope you would not mind if I ask you a few questions?"
...That is fine.
"Where do you live, Grentonis? And do you live alone?"

I'm not sure how I should answer these, if at all. Another servant comes by and asks me if I would like any alcohol. Mead sounds... very good, but might not be a good idea right now.

I live in a range of mountains with my children. There are a few other dragons nearby but they keep to themselves.
"Interesting! Is your childrens' father watching over them, or--"
They do not have a father.
"...I see. I am sorry."
It-- it's fine.
"Then, if you don't mind me asking, are they being supervised at all? I do not wish to doubt your skills as a mother."
Yes, by a trustworthy aquaintance of mine.
"You seem to think they are capable so I will not press the issue any further."
I am curious about the food that will be served. I am not used to such... delicacy. Forgive my ignorance, but I have never heard of "seasoned" or "gravy".
"Ah, yes. 'Seasoned' means it has been given flavor through the use of spices or certain plants. 'Gravy' is a, well, a sauce usually made from the otherwise unusable parts of meat."
Hah, given flavor? Isn't the meat flavor enough?
"Haha, not for humans, no."

Several servants deliver plates of smaller food items. The smell of cooked meat wafts in the air. The servants leave and the room is empty save for us three. Gailegh gives a deep sigh.

"I was afraid we would never be given privacy. My lady, I am still very curious of your reason for coming here. You seemed rather reluctant to explain. I understand if it is too much of a sensitive subject, but it would still be a great help if you were to tell me the entire story."
No. 418090 ID: fa9f7e

I was raped by a knight. Given the cost of the armor and the considerable magical training he had, I know he is wealthy, if not noble. And given the interest you have shown, Gaileagh, I suspect it could be you. Why should I simply not turn you into the cooked meat you love so well here and now?"
No. 418098 ID: 132b99

that's a pretty heavy implication out of nowhere. and heavy handed too.

"while resting in my cave a knight appeared. i thought i knew why he came, revenge for some slight i may have done. we battled he blocked my fire and teleported to dodge another. then when i scored a hit he threw a knife at me, poisoned. i was paralyzed and he came forth i thought he was going to kill me. but no, he.. he..... he raped me!" start crying and tell boaga to finish.
No. 418121 ID: fdad59

Ask Lord Gailegh to move closer so that only he can hear, warn him that you're going to have a hard time recounting what happened, and that you've only told your good friend Boaga everything.

Tell him the beginning: That a man in chainmail and a horned helmet, armed with a sword, came into your home. You attacked him with dragon-fire, as you always do with trespassers, but he blocked it with magic, then teleported next to you. As you moved to hit the man, he threw a dagger at you that was coated in a poison. When it hit, your muscles lost all their strength, leaving you helpless. You could do nothing as the man approached and... raped you...

A knight burst into my lair. I figured he was after a dragon's horde or glory like many other knights. He defeated me using a paralytic poisons and defensive magic.

Rather than killing me, he took advantage of the poison and pursued to violate me.

...Please, come closer. I-- this is very hard for me. I've only ever told Boaga this, so I m-might have trouble retelling it.

I-it was three days ago. I was resting in my home when a man-- a-a man in chainmail and a horned helmet entered. I responded with fire, a-as I always do with tresspassers, but he... he used magic to block it. I went to strike him instead and he threw a poisoned dagger at me, a-a-and-- I w-was paralyzed-- I couldn't move and I j-just laid there...
"My lady...?"
H-he came up to me, a-and-- he raped m-me...

I break down, and Boaga is there for me.

"We've been looking for him ever since that, and the trail we've been following lead us here."
"That's... that is despicable. We cannot allow such a monster to exist. I give you my word, my lady, that we will bring this man-- no, this... this less-than-man, to justice."
T-thank you...

Pretty much this but maybe more dance or something and less sex.
No. 421107 ID: 9718f3

Sexy dance it is. Bo can't dance because he's injured, so you have to make it fun for him to watch, or else it's just you having fun and that's not good at all.

Pass out half way through. Then wake up with comedic hangover and lack of recollection of previous night's events post-dinner.

What-- NO! I'm not-- I'm not implying that! I mean, I still think it'd be fun to tease him a bit, but... I don't want that.

...That came out wrong.
"I-I was gonna say..."
Would you like to dance?
"My shoulder..."
Oh Tiamat-- Bo, you keep on letting me down.
"I'm sorry--"
I mean, at this point I'm wondering why I even brought you along.
You can just lay there and do whatever it is you do when you're alone. I'm going to go out and do something fun.

And you like her, why again?
Circumstance that she was the only woman near your home who wasn't annoying?
No. 421282 ID: 4c4ae4

You can play games! 20 questions? Tic-tac-toe, drawing with your claws? Or perhaps you could practice platonic massages. I bet you have a lot of built up tension.
No. 421301 ID: 9718f3

He's letting you down? Grentonis... you're the one who scared the cart that collided with him, it is at least half your fault he's injured in the first place. And you are the one who left the poisoned dagger behind. You've made mistakes too.

On the other hand, Bo, after being injured and having his love rejected by you spent hours with you when you were at your lowest. Doing nothing but being there for you when you needed it, asking nothing in return, because he is a good friend.

And now you are saying rather cruel things to him and planning on abandoning him when he is injured and in unfamiliar environs? What, because he got injured? An injury you are partially responsible for?

Stop being a bitch Grentonis. Be there for your friend. Start by apologizing, then let him get his rest. But stay with him! He's hurt, it is an unfamiliar place, and while Gailegh has been very kind, not all of his subjects will be. Bo could be at risk if left unattended, especially in his weakened state. Make this small sacrifice for your friend.
No. 421303 ID: b85f8c

Grennie: Go "Oh wait, nevermind lol" because you're drunk. Then tell Bo if he can't think of anything to do you're gonna just amuse yourself by teasing him with your body.

Bo: Desperately think of something to do. Word games, maybe? You could make art for her.
No. 421306 ID: f453e3

Wow, you're seriously holding Bo's injury against him?

How does anyone like you, again?

At this point, pretty much this. I can't think of one real positive quality about her. She's prideful and full of herself while being crap in a fight against a human with a poisoned pig sticker and horribly unstable emotionaly. Bo, go home and find a better mate, you deserve it.

I put up with it before. I loved you. I still do. But it's so hard to love you, Gren. When you tore me away on this, this hunt, I followed you, because I wanted to be near you, to help you, to do anything for you!


I've watched you, and the way you do things, and I don't like it! You've hurt people, Gren! Even I got hurt, just for you! No, not for you. For love. I don't know you, 'Lord Grentonis'! I don't even think you know yourself! But that's all you care about: yourself!

"You.. Boaga, shut up. S-shut up!"

You think you're the only one with fire inside you, Grennie? The only one that can kill? I thought I needed you before, but I never have, Gren. You're the one that's needed me!

"Boaga.. B-Bo.. Stop it. Stop it!"

As if you even could! You're weak, Gren! You've always been the weak one. I've just never understood before. But now the only thing I can't understand is why I ever cared about you! Maybe it was because you were the only girl nearby! Maybe I was just crazy and I wanted a CRAZY GIRLFRIEND!

Ugh. I don't know what you guys are even doing anymore.

You realize that we're the ones making Grentonis a jerk, and then having Bo react badly to it, right? You're MAKING them fight. This isn't their fault. This is your fault. And now their relationship is fundamentally broken.
No. 422012 ID: 299ed3

I'm legitimatly confused here, what are you trying to say? You just quoted a saying without any context.
No. 422016 ID: e3f578

Bo, no
Don't attack a rape victim's self esteem, especially when she's your friend (even if she's being a bit of a bitch), shit son, I just wanted you to realize for yourself to help you get over her.
Low blow man, now you the selfish one. I mean hell, think of all the shit you just said, you were in it acting the nice guy for pussy man. The fuck do you come off, asshole?

(I know the irony, I've attacked Gren's self-esteem as her mind voice too but trying to wake her up and make her more self-aware when it seems like her own voice seems like less of a douchebag move)

Gren, the right thing for you to do if your bored is go take a walk and look at the stars and shit. Maybe roll around in the dirt and get hype if that ain't enough for you.
Bo, you just chill out and enjoy the fucking stars, you done enough today.
No. 422023 ID: dcd48d

I support this. Go home or somthing Bo. If she is going to treat you like this after you've done so much for her she's not worth your time.
No. 422024 ID: dcd48d

Hey I supported the dance option and etc, I never told Gren to be a huge bitch to a guy who has followed her through this whole trip for the sole purpose of helping her.
No. 422040 ID: a2fa74

Both of you stop it.
Gren: You were being a jerk to Bo. Don't be a jerk to Bo. He shouldn't be getting and lashing out at you, but his words cut deep because he's mostly right and you know it.
Bo: This is wholly inappropriate. You've gone well past calling her out for being mean and on to attacking her.
Both of you: Settle down, apologize, and make-up.
Bo: Hug Gren.
Gren: Kiss Bo.

No. 422050 ID: 9718f3

Bo: Okay, you let your emotions run away from you a bit and you've gone too far with your words. You need to calm down and apologize, but your concerns are real and can still be made to be heard.

"I-I'm sorry, Gren. That wasn't fair of me. I j-just got so fed up with being treated like a... like a toy. Like if I don't do everything you want you'll just walk off and abandon me. It h-hurts to think a friend doesn't really care about you."

Really? Fine, I'll support it, but on the condition that it can be a totally platonic kiss if Grentonis feels like it.

No. 422523 ID: af3431

Keep at it, Bo. Gren's been nothing but a bitch to you this whole time, taking advantage of you, then abandoning you when it was convenient. You always end up getting hurt because of her while she sits pretty and laughs. It's time you gave up on her lost, whorish cause and took your life back.

Besides, you haven't said anything that isn't true.

And... you did that because you trust me. I-- I'm sorry, Gren. I just don't want to be treated like that anymore.
I'm not taking back the things I said. It's all true. But Gren, I do care about you. It just hurts to think that, as a friend, you don't care about me.
"...Damn it, Bo. It's-- it isn't like that. I care about you, too, and I'm thankful for everythting you've done for me."
Well then why have you been treating me so badly?
"I-I don't know. M-maybe I've just been taking you for granted. I've been ignoring your feelings."
Then, please, realize that I have feelings too. I was ready to walk out that door and go back home, injured shoulder and all.
"Wh-- n-no! Please d-don't do that! Please. I-- I need you. I need your help. I don't think I can do this without you, Bo."
No. 422565 ID: e3f578

"Then please, calm down. If you want to go do something, go do something, but please don't blame me for your boredom. I've been through enough today, okay? I'm not responsible for that. If you need emotional support, I'm there for you, but right now I can't do anything much else, let alone something active like dancing or shopping. I really need rest; there's probably a decent friend around here somewhere if you honestly do need someone else to go have fun. The servant lady might have some decent ideas for a human."
No. 422623 ID: af3431

Bo, what the fuck do you think you're doing?

You're letting her win again.

Just man up and tell her the truth.

who cares about winning? he just wants to take a nap.
No. 422644 ID: b85f8c

Gren, it's probably because you feel like you have to be as dominant as possible to compensate for the shame of what that man did to you, and the shame of having to cry on Bo's shoulder about it. You're a proud dragon. Proud of your strength, and he made you weak.

On the other hand you used to bully the villagers near you a lot. Perhaps bullying is in your nature.

That would be incredibly selfish. We're not past the point of no return, here.
No. 422725 ID: 6e44d2

Jeeeeeezus! So much drama.

Bo, just do what you gotta do to keep the peace and not get walked all over, and forget about Gren as soon as all this is over. She just isn't worth your time or attention in any sense. Find some other cute dragoness who isn't a frigid bitch.

No. 422865 ID: 5db3c3

Of course you'll stay and help her. You just might need her to help you help her occasionally. And part of that is accepting your limitations and not being a jerk about them. For now, that means letting you finally go to sleep. So tired....

Okay-- Just, please. I meant everything I said. Don't be like that anymore. Don't blame me for you being bored. I just want to stay here.
"No, it's-- it's fine. I want to stay with you. I always wanted to stay with you. That's why I wanted you to come have fun with me."
W-well, I'm sorry. I'm tired and hurt. I just want to sleep.
