Thread: Respite (Umbralume)

    Lucia rolled her eyes, they are already digging bodies up to make disgusting golems, giving the Drider actual legs wouldn't really be any worse. But Abigail was obviously touched in the head so she debated no further.

    "Please try to brush the dust off your sense of humor, priestess." Mishka made another sharp, silhouetted smile, and sort of lent against a backwards chair in a weird imitation of sitting. "How exactly would it profit Abigail or myself if I killed you in your sleep? It would not."

    "As... devoted as you are to your particular studies, I'll forgive you for not realizing many of the greatest Drow in history have become Driders and have died that way." Rather than patronizing, her voice now seemed to be as harsh and sarcastic as Lucia's, perhaps in a desperate bid to relate to the stoic woman. "I am not arrogant enough to assume curing it is childsplay. I do not enjoy the feeling of it under my skin. Becoming an even less Drow monster is perhaps even preferable."

    Using her crimson talon, she rather carefully plucked some glasses up and moved one infront of Lucia, pouring them both a considerable quantity of finely aged red wine. Trying to drink from her own glass nearly resulted in her toppling it, so she just shrugged and swapped hands to the more humanoid one before disgruntlely sipping away.

    "...Knowing this... Can we at least agree to put it behind us for now?"

    "Pff, great Drow? How can anyone use those words together?" Lucia, ignored the wine but at least had the decency to actually respond to the creature this time.
    "I am going to go to sleep, make sure your creatures stay away from me."

    Abigail rolled her eyes as Lucia made her way off to one of the bedrooms, smiling to Lucy and Titian after she left. "I'm sorry about that. I thank you both for your understanding. It is unfortunate that Lucia is racist, but I understand she is very good at what she does, and I put your wellbeing first." She smiled warmly at Mishkala. "I do not know what I would do without my beloved Mishka."

    "Great and Drow? Of course! These should be great by human standards, for sure!" Mish held up her bazongas by crossing her arms beneath them, making a tremendously prideful face. Lucia was beginning to stand up anyway, but the tact of showing them to a priestess seemed to be lost on her regardless. "Just tell me if you want anything, okay, sweetheart?..." She was still talking to Lucia, typically.

    "It's alright, Abigail, darling..." Placing her elbows back on the table, the arachnid-woman then just made an upbeat little sigh and looked at the ceiling. "I like her!... She's such a bitch!"

    "As for you two... I understand this place is scary and all, but please ask if you want something." The helpful expression on her face said she might actually be serious. "You're helping my darling, after all, so I can hardly let you go hungry or thirsty... Just knock on the door, okay?"

    The next morning, Abigail and Mishka greeted everyone in the main dining hall of her mansion. "Morning dears." Abigail smiled, waving the group over. "I made everyone breakfast because I'd feel awful sending you all off on adventure with an empty stomach! And because last time I tried letting one of the servants cook they caught fire and then the other one flipped out and it was just a very big mess and I'd rather avoid that again."

    She smiled at Titian. "I trust my lab was helpful? My field's a bit different from yours, but I imagine it had everything you needed, yes?"

    "Breakfast isn't.... bugs... is it?" The alchemist seemed genuinely concerned. "And the lab was perfect! But... erm... well I was making this sticky bomb... and it kind of blew up prematurely... all over the place..."

    This time only the quiet, murmuring voice emerged from under Lucy's cowl. It seemed the scene last night had deterred her from pretending to be able-bodied.

    "I hope it isn't too rich. You know how rich food makes me feel..."

    Then, as though she'd forgotten herself, the other voice emerged. This time it didn't bother to traverse Lucy's vocal cords, and instead came from inside your heads.

    Mishkala was already seated with a backwards chair propping up her pelvis, busy gorging into a pile of gammon, fried eggs and bacon sizable enough to kill an average person. It certainly didn't look like bugs, but at the rate the intense arachnid woman was going at it, joining in could still be considered hazardous for your health.

    The voice that penetrated each of their minds... Now, that did get her attention. So much so that her breakfast almost went down the wrong way. Coughing heavily, she just gave Lucy and irate look and again pondered on what exact kind of freak the woman was.

    "...Look, are you possessed or something? Or turning into a Lich?" Yeah, she went ahead and said it, alrough her expression was more one of curiosity or perhaps sadistic interest rather than fear now. Using her left hand, she molded a tiny little humanoid shape made of blue light, then puppeteered it on a little dance around the table top. "Forgive my forwardness, but the worst kind of monsters are the ones you cannot see. The ones that manipulate your mind from the shadows..." A snap of the fingers, and the little man dissipated.

    A small laugh, then she lent on her elbow and shot Lucy a coy but shady grin. "...Now, I've been perfectly honest with you, haven't I sweetness? We can all trust each other, can't we?"
