Get out and hold the boat steady for Cedric or else he is certainly going to fall out and get your shirt all wet.

It took all day to get to your sister's? Makes her sneaking over to your place, making off with your stuff as you slept, and then heading back kind of a bigger deal.

Your sister has the privilege of riding in a carriage. You don't. Besides, if you wanted to go the shorter way, you'd have to go through town. And you're not really a fan of crowded places
No. 461868 ID: 4594e2

All right, good that we're back on shore. About how much further to your sister's house? If we're close enough to see, you may want to start watching for ratlike things. Better safe than sorry and all that.
No. 461887 ID: 5a56af

A little sociopathic, aren't we? No wonder we talk to ourselves.

So what's the drawback to taking the scenic route, anyway? Besides, you know, it being longer.
No. 461892 ID: ec0bf5

Well, let's head off then. Make it to your sister's place quickly so we can be off. Just be careful, that voice seems pretty active lately.

That not sociopathy, that's just introversion. Unless you count the black shouty voice telling her to kill people...

You're not a sociopath, at least when the voice is quiet. The voice isn't just some ugly mental personality you developed in your head. It's... a living being. It inhabits your thoughts, your mind.

You tie the boat to a tree, then change clothes with Cedric. After a few minutes of walking you spot your sister's home.

>"What's your sister like, Rella? I don't think you've ever really mentioned her."

You tell Cedric she's... nice, you guess. She's rather scatterbrained, though. She's also not someone you should really trust with anything, especially with personal belongings.
No. 461918 ID: 86c3a7

Hey, we're living beings too! Well, if you want to call what we're doing living. (I kid, I kid). But on the plus side: if that once voice is independent of you, that's sort of a good thing. A psychic attack is somewhat more reassuring than actually going crazy. ...even if that's what he's trying to do to you.

Let's go in and get your stuff back.

What's the plan, anyways? Are we staying the night? Or are you planning on rafting back in the dark? (Hopefully the return trip is downstream, since you were paddling before).
No. 461921 ID: 5a56af

Let's just waltz right in.
No. 461925 ID: b33427

Or sharp objects, like your ruby knife... Though, you shouldn't really have that it at hand with that voice in your head either, so... Maybe have Cedric hold it for you while you're around your annoying sister, just in case.

Come to think of it, you never did mention why you came all the way out here to Cedric, did you? Tell him that your sister came out to your place and took your prized ruby knife, from its secret compartment, while you were asleep, and you're here to get it back.

Well, if you're on generally good terms with her you should probably knock on the door. Also, yeah, don't try to hold anything dangerous like your knife, not with that voice acting up. Why do you like knives so much, anyway? That's an unusual hobby.

Are voices in your head usually this inquisitive? You've made it pretty clear you don't feel like explaining things, at least not right now.

As for the return trip, you planned to just take the boat back home downstream. You're not really intent on staying the night.

You knock on the door. Hopefully your sister is home so you can-

>"What brings you here, sis?"

You briefly wonder if would be so bad to let the voice take over and kill your sister.
No. 462149 ID: 67ba4b

the voice is just your jealousy
you think killing her will make you more attractive by lack of comparison

you should instead channel that anger into drive to work out
sure you'll still be ugly, but at least you'll have your health.

you may also want to reconsider the whole no pants thing, your sister pulls it off better, and you wouldn't want people to think you're just copying her style.
No. 462150 ID: 86c3a7

It appears the pantsless sweater look is a thing.

>You briefly wonder if would be so bad to let the voice take over and kill your sister.
Well... she did steal your stuff, tackle you embarrassingly to the ground, and has the audacity to be both chestier and thinner than you...

I mean, no! Nononono. Can't let him win that easy.

Anyway, you tell your sister to give back your knife. You're not in the mood to play games, but of course your sister won't make it that easy.

You're mad because she stole something from you and she's being unhelpful in getting it back. You're starting to wonder if these so-called "good voices" are any help.
No. 462164 ID: 86c3a7

We kind of need a situation where help would be relevant. I mean, c'mon. This is a fairly tame domestic dispute over illicitly borrowed goods between siblings. Our only real options are to try to get you to go easy on her, or to egg you on.
No. 462165 ID: e68f23

Release her face and in a forced friendliness explain why she shouldn't take thing without asking, then get her to go collect the knife and give it to cedric..
That should get through her layers of stupidity.
try not to stab her when you get neer the knife though, that other voice seems a bit... malicious towards your sister and you.

Well just go with it. Get off the ground, calm your sister down and ask if she can take you to the knife. Unless she lost or sold it or something.

Not exactly good voices either, we are neutral, we have our good and our bad.

However we will recommend that you calm down, you know where the knife is, ask for her to let you into her home and re-possess your item.

Let your sister know that borrowing your shit without asking is disrespectful of you and your boundries and completely unacceptable. You're not even sure if you should just give her a visit like that, even if she's making that face to coerce you into staying, thanks to this whole situation. It's immoral, and completely wrong to do to family. And this whole manipulative puppy dog eyes shit is also unacceptable. Tell her to never do these things again to you, or else you'll just come back for your stuff and never talk to her again no matter her protests or attempts. She'd break a familial contract.
Let the confident chump know that his boner would be made quite flaccid real quick because you know how exactly to do that to a disrespectful male. Painfully. And Quickly.

Well, it's clear that this guy may well be a worse douche than any of us. I'll give him a chance, but he's really made a bad first impression.
It's also becoming clear that you were being very literal that your sister's all the things you aren't. Especially in the mentality department. Slim and busty, yes, though you've definitly got a much better butt. Don't think Cedric hasn't noticed, either. I'm sure he got just as good of an eyefull as we did.
With her bustline and ditziness, I doubt this is the first douchebag she's attracted, either. I'm starting to suspect that's she's gotten into a bad relationship and has only you to help her get out of it. That being why she stole your ruby knife.
Anyway, analysis done. Give your sister a glare that's even parts "are you going to get around to introductions some time today?" and "You gotta be kidding me."
No. 462228 ID: 734c82

No. 462312 ID: b33427

Turn to your sister and calmly ask her who this douchebag is, and why you shouldn't tie his stupid over-long sweater arms around him like an impromptu strait-jacket and hang him the nearest tree by them for being such a douchebag.

Though, you probably already know he's yet another in her long line of douchebag boyfriends, which just happens to be another reason you don't come around here.

All the same, try to put a good face on things and tolerate him. You've got nothing to gain by engaging him, and we only stuck around to try and improve relations with your sister. (Also, no need to give evil murder-voice any more ammunition).
No. 462567 ID: 049858

Husband? Oh, crap. Another way in which Brie is unlike you. Poor taste in men.
What was that about him leaving out some poison? There aren't many legitimate professions to be having poison around, are there? I guess I'm just being paranoid again, but it still seems like the knife theft was a call for help.
No. 462583 ID: f2c20c

Huh. I wonder why she married him. Well, out of your very limited respect for your sister, try not to push his face in while you're here.

Tell him you're here for your knife and he should probably let you in so that you can get it and leave as fast as possible.

Maybe you could stay for awhile and talk, as long as Manchester isn't around; He could go into town to the pub or something. At the least, tell Brie she's welcome to come to your place to visit anytime she wants. She can make the trip easier than you, since she can stand going through town.

As for how Brie even ended up with him, it's a pretty simple story. Your sister's always been the romantic type; always ready to go with the first man she assumes will treat her right. From what you've seen, Manchester does seem to provide for her, so he at least does that right.

It's simple and it gets the point across. And remind Cedric that he doesn't really know you that well, so it's obvious that he so far just likes you for your buns, which he can find somewhere else. And if he likes abrasive tough chicks, he can find another too, one without a lashing problem.
You have anger issues and you like making that issue go away by avoiding people. That way it never becomes a problem. See the logic, Cedric?

Equip the knife. Assume a defensive position, and yank Brie behind you. Yell at Cedric to run, I doubt Manchester needs to be told to do this. Shout to Her, "Take him and go!"
I doubt this will actually work, as it seems this is someone with a grudge or vendetta against you.
1. Get out alive.
2. Get Brie out alive.
3. Get Cedric out alive.
4. Now that he's actually done something worthy of it (endangering Brie, yourself, and an innocent bystander) consider shanking the hell out of Manchester. Letting Miss Her do it instead is an acceptable substitution.

Bonzi kinda hates your guts because of something that happened six years ago. But that's not important now.

Right now you need to figure out how to get to your KNIFE so you can fight her off and protect Brie and Cedric.

Your RUBY KNIFE should be pretty effective if you're fast enough. Just have to make sure you don't get hit, and to lead her away from the house.

All right. Time to think tactically. She's immensely strong, but bulky. She can't be that fast. Counter with speed of your own, as you've said. Teamwork will work, if you can distract her. Try calling to Bonzi "If you chase me, Manchester will get away!" and circle around through...whatever room you're in to the room you were in, and get the ruby knife. A yell of, "Brie! Cedric! Run! She's not after you!" will probably help get them out of danger.

First things first, get on your feet, and out of this room any other way then the hole you came through.

Now, can you roughly guess if Bonzi will come for you over Manchester? 'Cause if she will, you've got to play keep-away until him, Brie and Cedric get out of the house.

Grab a handful of that pile of plaster dust and rubble. You can throw that into Bonzi's eyes if she gets too close.

The final destination for all of you should be your boat, if you'll all fit. Get out over open water, and Bonzi will have to swim to get to you, which will slow her down. If you all won't fit, have Cedric head back to your place through town, along with Brie.

You don't know what Bonzi will do, and it's best not to find out. You need to get the others out of here, and maybe if you get out of this alive, tear Manchester a new one.

Your KNIFE won't actually cut very deep through Bonzi's skin; her skin's rather tough, but you should be able to get some damage in. You're not really sure what the story on the bandanna is.

It's a good disabling move, and with her size both them and the achilles tendon is a fairly easy target. The trick will be getting behind her, but in her case it seems like going in under her reach should get you some space.

It's so there won't be the risk that the loan shark's next action is kidnapping Brie and holding her as incentive to pay up. ...Though, you have to wonder why Bonzi was sent around to break limbs before Manchester has sold off all of his worldly possessions to pay off the loan. He hasn't even sold his house yet. That's just bad business practice, that is.

I'm wondering what the heck that boob-band is. Rella's Ruby Knife passed right through it without cutting it, and it appears that its ends are attached or fused to Bonzi's shoulder blades. Is it another cursed item like the helmet?
No. 467931 ID: ec0bf5

That sounds like kind of a silly idea. We have as much pants as we've always had and I doubt that armor would even fit. Plus, I mean, it's super cumbersome looking, even if it is lighter when you wear it.

How did you do that with your scarf, anyway?
No. 467934 ID: 049858

Well, Rella, you did it. The enemy(?) is defeated and stuck, and no one seems to have been seriously hurt other than yourself. Shouty wasn't allowed or able to take control, and you've bought your brother-in-law some time to pay his debts. Time for your sister or Cedric (whichever would be better at it) to check you over and see how badly you're hurt. That head wound (broken horn?) looks serious, and I'll bet it's painful.

Now it's time you got some answers. You ask Bonzi who Manchester owes money to.

>"He owed money to me. We played cards a few weeks back over in another town, and that snake took off without paying what he owed! I was getting back what was mine."

Figures. Bonzi was never too patient. She'd grind someone to death with her bare hands out of anger, even if they did owe her money.

No. 467963 ID: e3f578

You care too much for a poker game, this was just an excuse to break shit up and go ballistic on people. And so was your grudge against Rella. You spend too much effort on these things. Rella can destroy you, and she almost fell into madness doing so.

Do not anger Rella any longer, you will not like what that will bring if she becoems desperate enough, she'll lose control of herself, and maybe murder everyone. When you try to attack her again, think about more than your anger against her, because that puts more people at risk. Whatever, whoever your master was, think she'd like this shit? Think she'd like you inspiring a young fat pink imp into berserker madness that would kill an entire village or more for your simple grudge? Would you kill 100 innocent people for your vengeance? Because I guarantee you that may happen when Rella loses control.

Yeah, Rella, please elaborate on the threat you pose and your madness. Make her fear your broken mind. Because it won't be your fault if you lose control, it'll be this bitch.

I assume different pieces have different effects, like most Cursed sets in the RPGs I've seen.

You begin the tale of what you used to be, all those years ago. You were a mercenary, working with The Five, a group of the deadliest beings in all the land. You were ranked on how dangerous you all were; you were Number Five, the least dangerous.

Your group was hired to work for different factions and warlords, but the result was always the same: you came, you saw, you slaughtered everything in sight.

You were, in short, a monster.

Leaving her and getting out of dodge is acceptable. Putting her down is a lot more grey, but potentially acceptable if letting her live isn't safe. Egregious torture is just unacceptable.

...besides, Shouty would enjoy it. We're not giving him the satisfaction.
No. 468257 ID: beeca1

I've browsed tvtropes so much that by now I reflexively interpret egregious into its second meaning "remarkably good" out of spite. Heh.

Anyways, can we kill her, THEN skin her? Because she is seriously incredibly dangerous. According to your own theories, she's given in to Shouty and she still has 2 pieces of uber armor. The very least we ca sensibly do is take the armor off or kill her.

I, oddly enough, am of the opinion that everyone involved would prefer to do something called "let her live". Regrettably, that involves skinning her.

As far as I can tell, you want to kill her because you don't want to get your hands dirty, which is kind of hypocritical and not a very good reason at all.

So either spare her and find *some* way of unequipping that armor or just kill a helpless foe after she's been beaten.

Sure, we could just leave her there, and she *might* be able to get out by herself, but I doubt anyone would be willing to help her, and I have a feeling that doing so is tantamount to giving her a slow death via dehydration.

Skinning her is honestly the most merciful sensible choice we have.

Oh, and what do those bracer thingies we saw earlier do?
No. 468270 ID: 3338b5

You're making the assumption that removing the cursed item would make her significantly less of a threat. That it's the source of her power or something. It probably isn't- meaning torturing her has no upside.

The merciful option is to either to talk her down, or just leave her in the hole and leave.
No. 468274 ID: f2c20c

Do you have any concept of how painful removing someone's skin is? It would be more merciful to kill her! Besides, she's super mega huge and is probably in contact with the other members of The Five. If we let her live she is still dangerous and can bring much more dangerous people to attack us and our friends.

We have to deal with her permanently. Rella, is there a prison nearby or something? If you're not going to kill her, we need to keep her somewhere she can't do any harm.
No. 468287 ID: 049858

Before we go too far, it's interrogation time. You have a number of things to find out from Bonzi, not the least of which is the status of the rest of The Five.
Cedric will, by now, have some idea what you were talking about when you mentioned that it was dangerous to be around you. Expect that you have just picked up a devoted sidekick.
After you're done with your questions, *then* have Brie summon the proper authorities, whoever they are. I'm sure I don't need to tell you to be gone by then.
Manchester deserves a beating for endangering your sister like this. However, you are a better person than that. I would recommend instead getting a hammer and some pennies, and trying to beat some cents into his head. If you can find him, that is. I wouldn't be surprised if he either 1) headed for the hills, or 2) was watching and doing something unspeakable while the two of you fought it out.
Also, when Bonzi says you took away what made your master alive, is she referring to Shoutyface, over there? *points* I can see a twisted perception making him/it seem that way. I suspect, instead, that it was a matter of lifting a curse from her and containing it within yourself.

The Voice didn't necessarily control any of you, at least not back then. What the Voice did was lower your sense of mercy; you began to care less for your fellow person and more for the thrill of ending said person's life. But in the end, you were still aware of everything you did.

Every life you took. Every family you had destroyed.

The only reason you (and to your knowledge, Bonzi) aren't being pursued by any authorities is because back when you were a member of The Five, there was a large war. You were paid by opposing sides to kill, so technically there's no legal folly in that, at least during wartime.

You managed to escape that life and lay low because of what your master did all those years ago, Number One...

But that doesn't matter now. You don't want to kill or skin Bonzi. You do agree, however, that she is a threat, and that it wouldn't be wise to leave her in this hole. Unfortunately, you can't take her to a prison because she isn't technically breaking any rules. The way society works is that if you owe someone money, you are now at their mercy until you pay them what you owe. Manchester is too much of an idiot to remember this.

You call Brie over, but tell her to keep her distance from Bonzi, to be safe.

No need for that, I'm not a quitter. I agree that it's worth a try to attempt to convince Bonzi what really happened with you and your master. Echoing cutting down her hot rage with some cold truth, as one of the others said.
Perhaps Shouty can be convinced to give up a code phrase or something. I do NOT recommend letting him take over even to provide some bona fides.
If Gregga has the information that you're in this area, odds are good Bonzi isn't the only one she's shared it with.

Yes, go ahead and reveal us to Brie and Bonzi. Although it may not seem like it, this is an ideal opportunity. You have spared Bonzi, and are even talking her down. You have just proven that Shouty doesn't control you. I expect Brie to freak out at this point, so be ready to talk her down, too. She needs to know the truth, and understand that while Shoutyface is still in here, you've got it under control. Confort her as neccessary.
Once Bonzi calms down a little more, offer to help her dig herself out. Reinforce, if needed, that you are not her enemy.
Then find Manchester and make sure he's not doing something unspeakable...the slimeball. He needs to pay Bonzi, so make him work out a payment plan if he doesn't have the capitol on-hand.

She sounds like the type of schemer who holds people at arms length, close enough just to use them, far enough that she could shove them over the edge if need be.

Interesting. You kept Shouty around by choice? You could not keep him, if you wanted? I assume you'd rather inflict him on yourself that let him free to find someone new to control, or something?

>but how have you been resisting hi- it this entire time? It's not exactly easy.
She raises a good point. Yeah, we've been helping you, well, today. You've been managing on your own though for a long time. That's pretty impressive!

Hmm. We've got Bonzi calmed down and reasonable. If she promises not to kill your idiot brother in law, we could see about getting her out of the lawn.

You're not going to try and "honk" Bonzi's breasts. Not like you can get a hand around one, anyhow.

While you start digging Bonzi out, you make her promise not to hurt Manchester.

>"But I want my money!"

You promise her that you'll make him pay, but killing him is a bad idea, since you won't get any money that way. Plus, he's Brie's husband, so that wouldn't sit well with her.

>"Oh, true... and jeez, what did she do to get stuck with him?"

Brie makes a little cough noise to indicate she's still standing right there.

>"Oops, sorry."

You ask about Shrap's last known location.

You tell Brie he's not your boyfriend.

>"Really? He seems kinda into you! Are you sure you're not dati-?"

You silence Brie with a look.

>"Okay, okay, I won't talk about your boyf- him. But heavens, your clothes are ripped to shreds! Come with me back to the tower, I can give you some new ones!

Well, when all's said and done, no one died and Shoutyface was foiled. I'd call this a win. I'd suggest you tell Bonzi something along the lines of, "I don't use the name Mozzy any more...a very few people get to call me Rella."
Since it's a name you don't dislike as bad as "Mozzy". Might want to poke it at your sister, too. The fewer frustrations in your life, the better.

You tell the other two to return back to the tower while you go get your knife. Brie looks at you with uncertainty, before following Bonzi back to her home. That leaves you alone for the moment.

Earlier... Bonzi asked you how you're able to keep The Voice from taking control. That's what the Ruby Knife is for; it's enchanted with powerful magic designed to keep demonic influences at bay.

You're not making deep cuts by choice; the knife's magic only works if you cut deep. Little knicks won't do a thing.

And you're sorry if you came off as distrusting. You didn't know if your voices were simple an elaborate ruse by The Voice in order to get you under his influence. At least you know they're not demons...

You put your knife away for now. The Voice is quiet. For now, anyway.

You give Cedric a nasty glare. What are you going to do with him? Or Manchester, for that matter. You can't really kill Manchester, much as you like to. For some reason you can't understand, he makes Brie happy, plus he owes money to Bonzi. Killing him isn't fair to either of them.

You're pretty sure Manchester isn't abusive towards Brie. You made sure of that.

And as for how you dealt with the voice for the first few years... it was a rough time...

You consider Manchester's options. You could tell him that he should convince his father to pay off his debt, but that would affect Brie, since Manchester uses his father's money to take care of her as well as himself. So that's out of the picture.

The other options are to have Manchester work for Bonzi to pay off his debt, or to have Bonzi live in his home rent-free. You don't know if Bonzi needs assistance -- especially from someone as coniving as Manchester -- but it's worth a shot. You bring Manchester closer and grip his nose, painfully squeezing on it. He yelps in pain.

You tell him that you're going to see if he can work for Bonzi in order to pay off his debt.

>"What?? No way! You can't make me work for that tub of l- OW AAAAUGH MY NOSE!! ALRIGHT, ALRIGHT! I'LL DO WHAT YOU WANT. JUST STOP!"

You nod. You then look over at Cedric. You tell him that while you appreciate what he did for you, you don't need him to fight your battles. Especially if he's just going to lose and get himself hurt. You're not a babysitter.

>"R-right... I'm sorry..."

You ask him where Brie and Bonzi went, and he directs you upstairs. You drag Manchester along with you, taking care to make sure he bumps his head on the steps on the way up.

That's actually a pretty good look for her.

For once, this actually works.
Im upvoting on the terms that the blue mark is removed and she's left wearing only orange.

Steve shirt pretty great

A combo of the green jacket and Steve sweater.
Keep the symbol though, it completes the look.

You suppose this'll do.

You briefly wonder why Brie would even have clothes that could fit you. She did say she wanted to give you a makeover earlier, so you wouldn't put it past her to get you some clothes. Even if you probably would never wear them.

While Brie was helping you get dressed, Bonzi explained what she had been up to for the past few years. Apparently she had been working security jobs protecting some important higher-ups. You don't usually tend to go after the person who has an eight-foot-tall wall of fists as their bodyguard.

You proceed to tell her about your idea to have Manchester pay her off.

>"Servant, huh? Hm, I dunno, he seems to scrawny to be able to do much."

Manchester huffs at that, but you silence him with a glare. Bonzi continues.

>"Does he know anything about cleaning armor and such? I could always use someone for that."

Manchester attempts to respond, but you punch him in the head, knocking him to the floor.

You tell him he accepts.

>"Alright, works for me! You're now my slave until you pay off your debt."

Manchester scrambles to his feet, looking desperately at Brie.

>"Babe! You can't let them do this to me!"

Brie thinks for a moment, before answering him.

>"Well, you do owe her a lot of money. It's only fair. Besides, think of all the fun you'll have!"

>"Wh- fun?!"

You suppose that's over with. You prepare to bid farewell, when Bonzi suddenly speaks up.

>"Hey! I just remembered! I have a job up in the Higher Lands next week. Another protection job. There's a library up there that has a crazy amount of stuff in it."


>"Yeah, The Library of the Commonwealth! It contains all the information that's ever been discovered and all that. I'm not much for reading, but maybe you can find something there that can help you with your voice!"

It's better than sitting around doing nothing, that's for sure.
No. 476324 ID: ec6d4c

Well... it can't hurt to try and be proactive after hiding all these years, can it?

Besides, if you start to go mental, at least you'd be in the company of someone tough enough to take a few hits, or who could possibly hit you hard enough to knock some sense into you.

Although research for a cure might go easier if we understood why you seem to have taken the demon voice voluntarily upon yourself. So Shouty can't influence anyone else?

I am terribly intrigued by these Higher Lands of which you speak

What would you call a resident of the Higher Lands?

A Higher-Lander?
No. 476361 ID: b33427

Go for it. It sounds like a better course of action than hiding yourself away forever. Plus it'll give you a chance to haul Manchester up before his father and explain how he almost got killed 'cause he can't manage money worth shit.

Before leaving, check with Brie that she has enough money on hand to have the damage done by Bonzi repaired.

Why, a Highlander, of course.

what, you got something against trouser wear?
No. 476376 ID: 1f8505

Locate pants for your tremendous hips.
No. 476377 ID: b33427

Yeah, get pants. If you go to the fancy Higher Lands, like it looks like you're going to, they would take you more seriously if you're wearing pants. Especially if they're fancy pants.
No. 476379 ID: ec06d0

Do Highlanders wear pants?
No. 476380 ID: 7cc179

...a kilt, then?
No. 476413 ID: a40801

It's a plan. You will bring Cedric because he is smart if not crushing on you.

Acquire a BACKPACK, as well as some SHORTS in case the Highlanders scoff at your wonderful hips. Cedric will need his own BACKPACK, as well as a STERN TALKING-TO about just because you are taking him on a trip you are not in a relationship.

You think about what Bonzi has told you. It was probably foolish of you to think you could simply hide forever. Sooner or later the Voice would find a way to overtake you; you could feel it. This library may be your chance to finally tackle this problem once-and-for-all.

But there's also the chance that you might run into Shrap in the Higher Lands. Which would be bad news, considering she may be tougher to deal with than Bonzi.

You don't remember explaining how the different lands work, so you decide to get it out of the way: the world you live in is split in three parts. The Common Lands is where you currently reside. It's big, and rests on the ocean. It's made up of isolated towns and villages.

The Higher Lands is a floating continent. All the richer folk live up there, as you stated earlier. The rich looking down on the lesser fortunate; both figuratively and literally.

Then there's the Under Lands. You don't know much about them, or even where they are. You just know it's apparently a dark place.

You tell Bonzi you're up for a trip to the Commonwealth. If something happens, you at least have Bonzi as back up.

Bonzi is delighted to hear this.

>"You'll love it! It'll be just like old times! Just, you know, without the mass murder."

Old times... you remember when you took the fragment of the Voice from your Master. The Voice you have isn't the entire being; it's merely a piece of a monstorous puzzle.

You turn to your sister and ask her if she has a skirt you can wear. You're not big on pants, but you should at least wear some kind of covering for your legs if you're going to the Higher Lands. As she gives one to you you ask her if she has enough money to pay off the damages Bonzi caused. She tells you it shouldn't be a problem. You nod, and bid her goodbye.

>"W-will you come back?"

You said if everything goes alright... you will. You promise. She hugs you and wishes you good luck. You grab Manchester and prepare to head downstairs, but Bonzi stops you.

>"Hey... can I come with you for a bit? You can show me where you live!"

You tell her your home isn't much, but fine, she can come. At least she can knock you out cold if the Voice acts up. You both head downstairs, where you find Cedric sitting and waiting for you. You help him to his feet so you can finally go home. Bonzi is oddly quiet now.

You tell Cedric that you're sorry for dragging him into all of this. None of this was your intention.

>"It's o-okay, Mozzy. You should be more worried about y-yourself! You got hurt protecting us."

You tell him it's nothing. You tell him that you're heading up to the Higher Lands next week to visit the library they have. You tell him you'll see if you can get him a book or two. He seems to perk up at this.

>"The L-Library of the C-Commonwealth?? I've always wanted to go there! They have more knowledge than anywhere in all the lands! Please, take me with you!"

You're not so sure. You don't want a repeat of what happened today. But he seems set on it... you sigh, and then say he can come. But you tell him he HAS to be properly prepared for what may happen.

He nods. You throw Manchester against the wall.

>"Ow, fuck!"

You warn him to stay here, or you and Bonzi will be back. His servitude begins next week. If he runs you're not going to stop Bonzi from doing as she pleases. He nervously agrees and slinks back upstairs.

should give a cedric a peck on the cheek for putting up with this.
No. 476456 ID: f2c20c

I think that might give him the wrong impression.

So, we've got a week to do what? Travel? How long is it gonna take to get there? Cedric's gonna have to recover a bit before the trip. Speaking of Cedric, it might be worth considering how he'll protect himself if we run into trouble up there.

As you make your way home, you ask Bonzi how long it will take to get to the Higher Lands. She tells you it should only take a day by airship. You nod. You've only been in an airship once, and that was a long while back. You briefly wonder about how Cedric is going to protect himself, but you suppose you can deal with that tomorrow. You reach the boat, but realize Bonzi is too big to fit.

>"It's okay, I can swim for hours, remember?"

Oh, right. Bonzi's species is rather aquatic. You and Cedric get into the boat, and Bonzi gets into the water. You start rowing, and swims after. After a few hours you reach the cliff where your home resides; you can see the sun starting to rise in the distance. Cedric tells you he can make his own way back home, so you bid him adieu. Now it's just you and Bonzi.

You take her up the cliff and inside your home.

>"It's... small."

You like to live meager, you say.

Suddenly the fatigue of the yesterday's events hit you. You need to rest. Bonzi sits leans down on a wall, and you sit next to her. After a while, your eyes start to close.

[And that ends Arc II. Sorry for the sporadic updates, finals and such. Next week Arc III begins, and things finally get a little more explaining. Also, puzzles!]
