"Well, I know I haven't forgotten about the green elder god--or you--but if I've forgotten an hour here and there of staring at it or listening to you talk, how would I know?"

Ooh, burn.

“I dunno” - he turns to Edie - “and do you have, like, specific questions about stuff, I can maybe answer some specific questions.”

"--You said you owned the laundry, right? When did things start getting weird, do you know anything about the skeleton demon, what can you tell me about Jan?"

Permalink

“There wasn’t anything super weird until that motherfucker - the weird stuff started when that asshole made me look at the green thing, I don’t know about the skeleton demon but it sounds bad, Jan was a rando I hired and never super talked to but I’m still pretty sure he was gay and making up his girlfriend? He wasn’t, like, obviously a cultist or a scientologist or anything freaky.”

"Super off-topic but why do you think he's gay?"

Permalink

“Just kinda had that vibe? There’s not, like, anything wrong with that, or whatever, sometimes you can just sorta tell.”

"I didn't pick up anything like that but I can't claim to have gaydar. And the creepy would probably have overshadowed it." 

She pushes herself upright, and her hand lands on--well, it looks like glass to her. She picks it up and examines it.

"--Uh. That's. Concerning. Did it come from the demon?"

Permalink

"--The demon was zero percent made of glass."

Permalink

"--So? That's a shard of bone."

"Con...cern. Gonna wanna see what Emily thinks once she's awake..." 

She looks around. 

"What's with the TV?"

Permalink

“The... TV?”

Permalink

"Yeah...it's..."

She trails off. 

She is looking in the direction of the green thing.

“- oh wait shit are you seeing the -“

He moves to block her line of sight -

She steps forward before he can get between her and it, deftly weaving around the sofa. She looks entranced. She holds her hand out...

Permalink

--A tendril of something green lances through her arm in two places--

Permalink

--And she collapses to her knees, screwing her eyes shut and holding her arm to try to keep the blood in.

Zeke looks at the woman with amnesia! She might have. Any idea what to do. About someone suddenly having a coil of patinated copper in their arm. 

Permalink

 

"Ordinarily I'd say to leave the impaling object in but I have no idea what that stuff is or how hazardous it is. Blood loss is at least a known danger...damn, I wish we had something sterile with us..."

The other girl begins to stir. 

Permalink

He’s increasingly suspicious that the woman with amnesia used to work in medicine, but this probably isn’t the best time to bring that up.

He crouches down and pokes girl number two on the shoulder. 

“You awake?”

Permalink

"Nn--I guess...what the hell..."

Permalink

"Weird skeleton demon thing?"

Permalink

"Yeah...izzat how you got here too?"
