Well now what?
I’ve been here a day, and I’ve managed to offend the vampiric masses just by walking through their town. The only thing I’ve hurt was my titanium golem. I’ve been kicked, and punched by the local humans I’ve come here to help. And the only vampire I’ve interacted with, I sold him a necklace so we had some startup money. I found a library and that was apparently my biggest crime to date because I was late getting back after this discovery and while I was reading books the vampire nation mobilized to find me. And the only one I can depend on for help or advice won’t talk to me. She’ll argue and be standoffish but not talk, not involve me, not help me understand this place. There’s a disconnect between Layla and I and I need to solve it. I can’t come here to sit on the sidelines. We’ve met the leader of the resistance because Layla went and saved them all alone. Then she went patrolling alone. Then she went gathering supplies alone. The stakes have been raised but she continues to put herself at risk solo. She bashes me for having a superman complex but continues to take on everything like she’s the one who’s bullet proof. I wouldn’t be able to forgive if something happened to her cause she got hurt in her quest to do it all herself.
She has all the background for this kind of fight, raised her entire life to hate those around her that were supposed to be close. But she has the teaching skill of a sock puppet, and I can’t keep siting on the sidelines.
Once again we found ourselves in a situation where we had to instantly trust a stranger we just met, and within moments I was saying “look see I’m a dragon”. I hope he proves to be the trustworthy character we hope he is but my first impression I imagine lacked something to be desired based on all the rest of the circumstance in our first meeting. I’ve being given an escort, and it’ not my friend. This ought to be fun, not.
Well Now What?
