Last time, your expedition to find the cultist’s secret entrance turned violent! You took care of most of the evildoers and let your new ally Xavi take care of the rest, as your old new allies, B-WORM and Dudley, were in need of help as they succumbed to the cultist Valdemar Bruun and Giorsal, the leader of the judges! You almost got Philonune stolen by Ethempress’s cheap trick: Pretending to be knocked out! As the spell to remove your partner started, you tried to reason with her but to no avail – but Giorsal took back control of her body and stopped to listen to what you had to say. She was presumably about to knock you out to talk to you at the Distant Frontier, but at the last second, Bradford Jr. flew through the air and landed on the woman’s face, netting you some time to escape!You’re in bad shape thanks to your overuse of your own abilities and it really hurts when a Judge wants to take your flame from you. But that’s not all your problems, B-WORM and Dudley remain unconscious next to the taxi with Valdemar as well – and you went the distance just to rescue them.What do you do?!>Stop Bradford Jr.! Try to reason with Giorsal again! You have no energy to escape!>You have no other option but to escape! You won’t let the cat’s maneuver go to waste!>Move away and try to call for backup! You can’t let those two there, right?!>Write In.

This rule doesn't apply to the last reply of the day.Votes that require a dice roll are counted until 15 minutes have passed, so we can speed up the process. Rolls are counted until 10 minutes have passed, so be prepared! (NEW) Dice Mechanic: We always roll 1d100s!Since most people weren’t happy with the system of averaging top four rolls, we’re using best of 2/3/4 depending on the attribute a prompt requires. If Johnny is a genius and it’s a Knowledge based roll, he gets more rolls (Max. 7)! If he sucks, he gets less dice (Min. 2)! When asked for rolls, I will specify how many you’re going to get. Rolling begins after it’s asked. Rolling 100 is a critical and ignores all other rolls! In the same vein, rolling 1 means a critical failure (only for Very Hard rolls and above). The difficulty of the roll is tied with the effectiveness of the action. In other words, the harder the option the better the result! Don’t forget that at the end of the day, this is a story-driven quest! What the prompts are describing is more important than the difficulty of the rolls, for results in a fight. Again, rolls are only counted when they are posted within ten minutes of being asked, so watch out!
>>4017108>Stop Bradford Jr., whisper to him to go get help! Try to reason with Giorsal again! You have no energy to escape!
>>4017108>>Stop Bradford Jr.! Try to reason with Giorsal again! You have no energy to escape!We can talk like normal people instead of knocking each other out
>>4017108>Stop Bradford Jr.! Try to reason with Giorsal again! You have no energy to escape!>Stall for time and try to recuperate as quickly as possible.
>>4017108>Stop Bradford Jr.! Try to reason with Giorsal again! You have no energy to escape!Fighting each other at this point is legit retarded
“Get off me! Get off me!” Giorsal is walking backward and away from your debilitated body! She tries to grab the fat cat away, but it’s like her hands dive into his fatness and can’t get off – rendering her efforts useless! Bradford Jr. won’t let her go that easily!“Bradford Jr... Stop.” Your throat feels dry, talking is actually hurting you.“Meow…?” Bradford Jr. appears confused, how you can tell confusion on a fat cat’s face is beyond your understanding right now.“I’ll reason… with her…” If you could move your body you would give him a thumbs up.“Meow.” Bradford Jr. nods and then floats away towards your side. Right, he floats. Why does he float again?“Blebleblergh!” Giorsal takes her little cloak and cleans her face with it. “That cat feels icky!”“Meow.” Bradford Jr. feels offended. He’s now sitting on top of you, he probably weighs more than Amelia…“Giorsal, please listen to me. Don’t do anything rash, I’m not planning on hurting you as you can see.” You start reasoning with her again using the same arguments as before.“Huh…?” She puts her cloak away, looks like she forgot what was happening. “Oh… Uhm… I can not trust you in any shape or form, in the distant frontier we would’ve talked with no time constraints, but if you wish otherwise… You have a minute to explain why you are helping the people who want to take my life.” Giorsal is finally acting the part and is expecting a serious answer.You think you can move now that you have regained some strength, running is out of the question though and as for turning invisible… That could fail.How do you respond?>“Those were their past motivations. I took their leader out and they are not planning on killing you or any of the other judges.”>“The cult you’re helping is kidnapping people and we’re trying to save them, and planning to eventually take them out.”>Turn Invisible! Pretend to escape! See what she does next and plan ahead.>“A cutie pie like you would understand that we’re not the bad guys here.” Wink at her.>Write In.
>>4017238>“Those were their past motivations. I took their leader out and they are not planning on killing you or any of the other judges.”
>>4017238>>“Those were their past motivations. I took their leader out and they are not planning on killing you or any of the other judges.”It should be at least obvious that we're personally no trying to kill her, quite the opposite actually
>>4017238>>“The cult you’re helping is kidnapping people and we’re trying to save them, and planning to eventually take them out.”>Write In."You can even ask Athelone if I'm a danger to the judges."Oh noes, I can't seem to keep these names in my hands, I keep dropping them.
>>4017265"We also have a truck load of 'slaves' we just retrieved.""Oh, do you know a place we can take them to have them un-brainwashed?"
“Those were their past motivations. I took their leader out and they are not planning on killing you or any of the other judges.” You really really need a glass of water…“They broke the rules either way. You were all informed attacking the judges has extreme consequences and I have to deliver them. I can not look the other way, not anymore.” Giorsal gives her predetermined speech then realizes something about what you just said. “Wait, you took their leader…?”“I did.” You casually respond again.“You’re part of the group that helped another one of the judges?” Giorsal wants to make sure you’re not the enemy. She rearranges her clothes as the way they were before.“Yeah, volleyball head.” You smile despite wearing a mask that’s smiling.“You’re an absurdly rude individual, you know that?” Giorsal doesn’t look happy with you at all despite your heroisms.Giorsal walks back and forth for a couple of seconds, touching her wounds every now and then… She makes her decision!“This is perplexing… I don’t understand your motivations here. Why would you ally with them if you were enemies not more than a week ago?” Giorsal’s head can’t make sense of this. “I shouldn’t trust you, there is something you’re hiding.”“I’ve been telling you the truth the whole time!” You protest. “Look, there is something more important we have to talk about!”“Truth? Yeah, right! I don’t have a big butt…” Giorsal blushes as she looks away. “I regret to inform you that my resolution is final in regards to the other two. As for you… ” Giorsal looks a little clueless now. “I don’t know what to make of you. I’ll let you go, but I’m going to have a chat with the others and see if what you’re telling me is true or not. If I found out you lied to me this whole time… I’m going to hunt you down and make sure you’re out of this game for good, understood?” Understood?>“Yes, ma’am.”>“So how does the sex slave ring gets into the equation here?

>>4017474>“So how does the sex slave ring gets into the equation here? Do you even know what type of people you’re helping here?”She knows we don't mean any bad it's only fair that she's the same
“So how does the sex slave ring work into the equation here? Do you even know what type of people you’re helping?” Now is the time for you to confirm that she's not a cult scoundrel! Her motivations are looking more suspect than her demeanor lets it show, so something is off or...“C-Could you repeat that again?!” Giorsal furiously blushes as she panics. “You just said sex slave ring?!”“You’re telling me you didn’t know?” You would facepalm if you could. What the fuck is this girl doing!“Of course not!” Giorsal didn’t have a single clue! “Y-You need to show me some proof!”“Do I have to? You really think a cult, that is also plotting to destroy the world, won’t be doing some fucked up shit like that?” You could ask Xavi for some pics, but come on!“I…” Giorsal grabs her skirt and stares at the ground ashamed of herself. “I swear I didn’t know!” Between shame, embarrassment and panic – Giorsal looks more or less the same mess she was before her entity took over her body.After a long wait, you have enough strength to stand up! You shake your head and continue talking.“Giorsal, what’s your deal here? Why are you helping these assholes? Do you want the world destroyed?” You need some answers. Nothing about what she does makes one lick of sense.“W-Well… T-This is not the point of the conversation! You need to leave in this instant!” Giorsal uses her entity to put B-WORM, Dudley and Valdemar inside the taxi! “O-Or I’m going to be obliged to hurt you!”
>>4017728“Answer me first!” You won’t let her go until she comes clean.“Yeah, answer him…” It’s chancellor Foroutan! He’s awake once again but doesn’t look like he’s in shape to fight – he’s near the workshop building, one arm using the wall as leverage. He’s a pretty loud guy, so despite not shouting you two can hear him perfectly. “Or better yet, take him out and show where your loyalty lies.” Foroutan smirks with said proposition.“Chancellor Foroutan…? What are you doing here?” Giorsal is displeased with the bald man’s presence.“We can talk later, just get rid of the kid.” He does a thumbs down! Who does that?!Giorsal doesn’t look like she knows what to do. You need to say something, but you don’t know exactly what’s going on…You need to say something!>“Giorsal, you know they are evil! Don’t listen to him!”>“Why don’t you attack him instead? He’s pretty annoying and I bet he doesn’t find you as cute as I do.”>“So Mr. Chancellor, why don’t you explain to her what you were doing inside there?”>“I’m here to protect the judges and save the world. Just ask Constance and Athelone.”>Write In.(Last Reply of the day! We continue tomorrow!)
>>4017734>“So Mr. Chancellor, why don’t you explain to her what you were doing inside there?”>Gain some distance from Giorsal and the cultists.
>>4017750Actually. . . Change to:>"You don't realise it do you? They're planning to brainwash you Giorsal! With a Judge on their side they can easily win the tournament!">"Knock him out!

>>4017734>>“So Mr. Chancellor, why don’t you explain to her what you were doing inside there?”"What's in the cargo box?"

“Giorsal, please. I don't want to force or threaten you into putting blind trust in me, all I ask is that you give me a chance to show you what these creeps are doing to those poor girls. It's honestly revolting.” You look her dead in the eye with as much seriousness as possible, you’re uniquely telling her the truth. You try to stay on guard but you don’t know how much you can do in this state. Giorsal locks eyes with you, doubt clouding her face – but then a spark appears in her eyes.“Chancellor. What do you have to say? Is there any merit to this… uhm…” Giorsal starts blushing. “…Sex Slave Operation?”“If I say yes, why would it matter? Girl, did you forget who we are and what we want?” Foroutan looks extremely pissed now. “Or are you telling me I was right about you all along? Take the kid out and prove me wrong.”“Uhm… I…” Giorsal is starting to doubt. “I don’t have anything to prove to you.” Giorsal is not up for mass destruction and slavery! Hooray! Or at least you think so…“Wrong answer.” Foroutan shakes his head and begins his attack.“Giorsal, below you!” Since you were paying attention you noticed the ground moving. It’s the giant mole entity!Giorsal bring her entity out and drags her away as the concrete below shatters and the bald man’s entity arises. Ethempress is holding Giorsal’s arms and is flying a few meters away from ground, out of reach of the beast.“Well, this makes it easier! Hee-Hee!” Ethempress smiles as she drops Giorsal safely away and dives onto the beast. She shoves her parasol inside the mole’s head.“Gah, WhAT thE FuCK?! You… BITCH…!” Foroutan collapses! His mole flame starts evaporating as it slowly reverts to flame form! He’s now unconscious again!“Aha…” Giorsal cleans up her skirt as she runs towards the bald man. “Now what am I going to do…?” She looks perplexed as she starts playing with Foroutan’s flame.“…Could you explain to me what’s going on?” You walk towards the taxi to have some healthy distance from them. Sadly for you, she starts dragging the cultist’s body towards the taxi as well.“I can’t disclose that information with you, I’m sorry!” Giorsal puts Foroutan in the trunk of the car. Then she gets inside the driver’s seat and starts the taxi! She knows how to drive?! Why does this surprise you…?“W-Wait! You can’t just leave like that!” You can’t let her go just like that! She still has B-WORM and Dudley!“Please! I don’t have any more time! We’ll take some time in the future, I promise!” Giorsal is about to leave you dry.How do you respond?>“Please talk to those two, I know you will be able to reason with them!” Ask mercy for both B-WORM and Dudley.>“You can’t just leave with them! It’s not safe for you!”>“Good luck then, I’ll be waiting…”>Write In.
>>4020558>>“Please talk to those two, I know you will be able to reason with them!” Ask mercy for both B-WORM and Dudley.
>>4020558>“Please talk to those two, I know you will be able to reason with them!” Ask mercy for both B-WORM and Dudley.
>>4020558>>“Please talk to those two, I know you will be able to reason with them!” Ask mercy for both B-WORM and Dudley.>"Meet me in the Distant Frontier, ok?"
>>4020558>“Good luck then, I’ll be waiting…”
>>4020558>“Please talk to those two, I know you will be able to reason with them!” Ask mercy for both B-WORM and Dudley.They're also helping us stop the cult
>>4020558>“Please talk to those two, I know you will be able to reason with them!” Ask mercy for both B-WORM and Dudley.>"Meet me in the Distant Frontier, ok?"
>>4020558>“Please talk to those two, I know you will be able to reason with them!” Ask mercy for both B-WORM and Dudley."Neither of them are cultists and they're also helping me!"
“Please talk to those two, I know you will be able to reason with them!” You ask for mercy for both B-WORM and Dudley. They are kinda decent! At least B-WORM is! You think! “Neither of them are cultists and they’re also helping me.”“They tried to kill me too.” Giorsal turns her head back towards the unconscious trio then back to you. “But rest assure, I’ll give them one chance. But just one, understood?”“Sure. Meet me in the Distant Frontier, okay?” One last thing to settle.“Yes, that’s your chance as well, remember! Now, good-bye and be careful out there!”And so Giorsal left in the taxi with B-WORM, Dudley, Valdemar Bruun and Foroutan to who knows where. You hope for the best for the first two and hell for the last two. Now you’re wondering is Foroutan his first or last name? Doesn’t sound like a first name, but who knows? You know a guy named Jeff Jefferson, people in this country don’t know how to name their children – your mom being the only exception so far. Talking about moms and children reminds you of something… What happened to Holly and Xavi? Are they fine? Is the brainwashing still in effect? You need to deal with that right now…Fuck, you’re stumbling around a bit, the adrenaline rush is all gone and your body has hit its limits. It could be worse, you can still walk – but once you shut your eyes tonight, you probably won’t be waking up in a long while! Would you consider this a satisfactory way to end this chain of events?Thinking about going to bed is a bit premature, you still need so many things to be dealt with...“Meow!” Bradford Jr. is still here and is ready to help you somehow. You pet him.“That was quite the event. What now, partner?” Philonune wants to know the next step.What do you do now?>Call Scarlet, inform her of your location and ask her to pick you up.>Call Xavi, you need to know what ended up happening to him and the others.>Call someone from the Motley Crew, you need specialized help!>Write In.
>>4020794>Call Xavi, you need to know what ended up happening to him and the others.
>>4020794>>Call Xavi, you need to know what ended up happening to him and the others.One of the main reasons why we even bothered doing this was to help them
>>4020794>Call Scarlet, inform her of your location and ask her to pick you up.
>>4020794>>Call Xavi, you need to know what ended up happening to him and the others.
There is an office building with some steps in its entrance, you sit on them as you pull out your phone to make a call to Xavi to know what ended up happening with him and the truck. Bradford Jr. follows you and sits next to you. The call reaches its destination…“Y-Yes? Is that you…?” That’s Xavi’s voice! Hooray!“Yeah, how are you faring so far?” You are relieved to hear his voice.“Well, I’m at Super Foods eating a cheap hot dog. The truck is outside, I was waiting for your call and all.” You hear Xavi eating a piece of his meal. "How it all go?""I'm clear. How long has it been since we split?” You wonder.“Nice job! And almost an hour. Noooow it’s an hour, nice timing as well! By the way, I’m totally clueless about what to do next.” You hear Xavi drink some coffee. How do you know its coffee? You just do. “I tried everything I knew to wake them up, but nothing works – Naiad thinks I needed to remind them of who they are, but I know nothing about anyone in there. Also, I don’t trust the cashier in here, he’s suspicious.”“Why?”“I don’t trust cashiers that give you your change in coins.” Xavi is one peculiar guy.Well, what’s the next step then?>Ask Xavi to go back here now that the danger is gone! You need a lift anyway!>Ask Xavi to stay put. You’ll go to whatever store he’s in.>Tell Xavi to drive the truck to the New Calamity Clinic. You’ll figure out something there.>Tell Xavi to drive the truck to Matilda’s dojo. You’ll figure out something there.>Write In.
>>4021118>>Ask Xavi to go back here now that the danger is gone! You need a lift anyway!Meet him somewhere a few streets away from the base though, just to be safe
>>4021118>Tell Xavi to drive the truck to the New Calamity Clinic. You’ll figure out something there.>Call the good ol' doc and inform him about the new patients.
>>4021118>Tell Xavi to drive the truck to the New Calamity Clinic. You’ll figure out something there.Can we tell Scarlet that we're leaving the area?
>>4021176I support telling Scarlet where we're going
>>4021118>Tell Xavi to drive the truck to the New Calamity Clinic. You’ll figure out something there.>Make a call to Calamity before calling Scarlet to pick us up
>>4021199Sure, this is good
>>4021324>>4021199But also text Kata to let her know there's victims arriving.
You tell Xavi to drive the truck to the New Calamity Clinic! You’ll figure out something there. He has no idea where this place is, so you told him the address – sadly, this guy is too cheap to have phone coverage, so you had to give him instructions… Good thing the place is nearby. You need to get there somehow…Now, you need to inform the good old doctor about the huge problem you’re leaving him with at his doorsteps! Dr. Calamity is an understanding man, so you don’t expect him to ignore you. You turn your voice modifier off and make the call. After saying hi to each other, you quickly turn the conversation where it needs to go – you explain with enough detail the issue you’re dealing with.Dr. Calamity was as deeply concerned as you expected, maybe a little bit more. Either way, he’s going to prepare his staff for the upcoming problem – and wonders if there is something they can do or if they should request your favorite mummy’s help. You have no idea what kind of brainwashing process works but you can not discard flame shenanigans, despite that you implore him to try every method they can to solve this. Dr. Calamity has to tell you there is no usual protocol for brainwashing, so he’ll do what he can. With concern plaguing his voice, the call ends and your concern doesn’t halt – not even his trademark laugh made you relax a little bit. Now you need to call your only team member who knows about your whereabouts! You really don’t want to worry her in the slightest, but just by looking at the time – she is most likely having some trouble coping with this. The initial conversation went as expected, and now that’s she knows what’s up, she’s coming over to go for you just to make sure you’re fine. You didn’t have the strength to argue or know if it’s necessary, point is you expect to meet a couple of streets away from the workshop just for safety. You and Bradford Jr. make your way to the meeting point, he’s walking along side you for some reason, was he on a mission? Or was him having fun nearby and it was good timing? You won’t know any time soon.Scarlet arrives in a hurry, as soon as she sees the state you’re in – she calls for a taxi for you two ride to the clinic. You must be looking real rough if she didn’t even hesitate, which makes you wonder if you’re in any shape to do anything at this point. You’ll pull through for now, nothing exhausting should be happening, right? At least you got some food and a drink from Scarlet, so you’re feeling a little bit better already.Oh, and she seems to have taken a liking to Bradford Jr.! She’s now carrying the fat cat around, more like struggling to carry him around.You’re now at the New Calamity Clinic! You spot the truck at the other side of the street of the clinic. Xavi arrived already? Good for him!Despite not having much of a problem potentially exposing Xavi to the others, Scarlet is another topic altogether.
>>4021340Should you go inside the clinic with Scarlet?>Yes! She already visited this place more than once!>No! She needs to keep a low profile even with your allies!What’s your priority right now?>Go where Xavi is and know what his deal is. You’ll leave the brainwashed to the experts.>You need to make sure Holly is really fine! She reacted when she saw you, maybe you can at least help her out?>Go meet up with Constance.

“Let’s find Constance first. I need to inform her about what happened to me.” You inform Scarlet as you continue walking towards the clinic.“That would be for the best, I think!” Scarlet agrees with your idea. “Still, you’re pretty amazing! Not even a scratch on your body!”“That’s a first.” You admit being “flawless” was all to luck this time.“I mean yesterday you did great as well. Still, we need to plan this better or things could’ve turned real ugly.” Scarlet is already planning for the future. “Not after a good break, you totally need one.”“Meow!” Bradford Jr. agrees with this assessment.“Let’s not get ahead of ourselves just yet, we have more stuff to do.” You take the mask off your face.The clinic is looking as busy as when you returned after Judgment Day, a lot of people are moving around but it feels well organized. You go to the counter and tell them you’re visiting Constance, the receptionist at this point knows you well enough to let you go through without issues. One part of you wanted to meet up with one of the Calamities. Is it Calamitys or Calamities? Technically it should be Calamitys, right? That’s how names work, no?“Talking to your buddy? ‘Philonune’ was it?” Scarlet wonders as she notices you contemplating nothing.“Ehm… No? I’m just thinking about something stupid.” You shake your head. You shouldn’t be thinking about random stuff now.“It didn’t look like it.” Scarlet feels skeptical about what you just said. “You look like you’re trying not to think about something.”“That might be it.” Maybe she has a point, or maybe not. You think about random shit all the time.“So how did the mask work this time?” Scarlet shoots another question.“Did its job perfectly, would recommend over the internet.” You say in jest.“Maybe we could sell them online to gain money to pay rent!” Scarlet’s eyes sparkle with this idea. “Just think about it, Nameless merchandise! You told the baddies about your secret identity to spread the word, right?”“No.” Were you supposed to?! It’s a secret identity for a reason.“I’m just kidding. I don’t want people to find us or something even worse: blackmail us!” Scarlet shakes her head.“I think you’re jumping too many steps ahead.”“You’re the one who made me think stuff more thoughtfully. I’m just a mere victim!” Scarlet jokes backs.But the chat has to come to a close now that you have found Constance’s room. You two go ahead inside and find Constance and Leo Watty playing Sparks of Luck on her bed! The little mummy appears to be losing. Wait, what is he doing here…?
>>4022760“Johnny! Son of Ando, Host of the Lightsbane, He Who Gods Dare Not Speak Of! Our fateful meeting has come at last! I quake in anticipation to hear your reason for coming here!” Leo Watty has a peculiar way to say hi.“Hey Johnny, Scarlet, Bradford Jr.!” Constance waves furiously. She has a lot of energy lately. Bradford Jr. leaps on the bed and totally destroys the game going on! Leo looks heartbroken, but Constance doesn’t seem to mind as she pets the overweight cat.“Hey Constance!” Scarlet smiles as she leaves her heavy bag on the ground and sits on the bed. “Who is this guy? Is he your friend?”“Friends?! Buahehahuhihihi! Naive young lady, I’m the Remorseless Beast Incarnate who has forsaken all love and friendship in all realms, such sentimentality serves no purpose for an awesome being such as me! This vessel possesses the name Oliver Watts, but my true name is Leo Major!” Leo puts his hand on his chest and bends forward in a short bow towards Scarlet. “The honor is all yours, you may swoon now.” The redhead looks a mix of uncomfortable yet excited, same as when you did Trent’s shenanigans.“I thought we were friends…” Constance looks sad. You don’t want a sad mummy.“Uuuhh…! Well, you are indeed an irreplaceable comrade to Oliver Watts and it is in my best interest to cultivate this man’s friendships! Allies are hard to come by after all.” If mental gymnastics was an event, Oliver would retire wearing nothing but gold medals.“We call him Leo Watty.” You explain to Scarlet.“Suuuure…” Scarlet looks unsure, but she’s going to get used to this… eventually. “I’m Scarlet. Nice to meet you.”“Oh, The Ruddy Lady! I won’t forget thee’s name!” Leo is still in character…“Not sure if I’m a fan of that nickname, but okay.” Scarlet shakes her head. You wonder if she prefers bubble butt…“So I would imagine you two are the reason I’m here today.” Leo Watty seems to be aware of something that’s going on. “I was called to guard the mystical child from unseen potential danger by the Schoolmarm…! I was the only one who was close by...” He drops character on his last sentence.“I need to talk to Constance, it’s serious.” You point to Constance.“Feel free.

>>4022765>Ask Constance to meet you at the Distant Frontier later tonight.
“Constance, can you call me at the Distant Frontier later tonight please? It’s important but not that urgent.” You politely ask the cute one-eyed little mummy.“I will!” Constance agrees without issues as she smiles, what a good girl.“Smart of you to keep your secrets, your foresight is as clear as your vision. Knowledge is a weapon not many can wield efficiently, I’m one of the few gifted exceptions!” Leo Watty responds with confidence.“Aww, don’t say that! You’re not that kind of stupid!” Scarlet tries to compliment Leo despite being called naïve a few seconds ago.“I-I meant the opposite…” Leo breaks character once again to feel a little bad about himself.“I… I’m sorry.” Scarlet doesn’t know how to deal with Leo. “I would love to spend more time with you, but it’s super late and we have school tomorrow!” Scarlet is creating excuses.“School is important!” Constance nods to herself. “Let’s play next time!”“I would love to!” Scarlet smiles and looks like she’s scheming something.“I’ll see you later, Constance.” You smile at the little mummy.“Take care, Johnny! You look tired!” Even Constance noticed. Uh-Oh.“Don’t sweat it, I have my eye on him.” Scarlet winks at Constance. The little girl certainly looks relieved. She trusts people easily, huh?“He seems pretty haggard, so be careful with him.” Leo again acts out of character but this time to show concern.“Hey, I’m not that tired…” You say as you step out of the room, Scarlet following your steps.“Meow!” It seems this is where you part ways with Bradford Jr.Outside the room, you have a long and deserved yawn. Scarlet looks a little bit more worried than a moment before.“How are you holding up?” Scarlet shows her concern.“I’ve been better, but I’m just tired – so it’s no biggie.”“Maybe I should take you home. Just saying.” Scarlet is thinking about how to drag you around with her heavy bag as well. That’s going to be some kind of challenge.“Mission ain’t over yet.” You still need to check on the brainwashed, you haven’t even talked to either of the Calamities.“Maybe I can take it from here.” Scarlet proposes without basis. What could she possibly do? Well, the same thing you’re wondering for yourself here. At least you want to make sure you can do something for Holly.What do you do?>Scarlet is right. You should go home and rest. Tomorrow you will deal with this whole situation.>Go check on Xavi.>Go check on Holly and the brainwashed.>Write In.
>>4022943>Gather Xavi and Calamity then go check on Holly.
>>4022947This and also add>"It'll be easier if both of us work on this one"
“It’ll be easier if both of us work on this one.” You’re a team, damn it! You should act like one.“I don’t know why I worry so much, we’re in a clinic if anything happens to you.” Scarlet smiles to hide her concern. “And you’re completely right, two minds work better than one!”“Imagine what four minds could do. We need to gather Xavi and Dr. Calamity and check on the woman I told you about, if we can’t snap her out of her hypnosis – then there isn’t much we can do.” You know what to do, it’s time to just do it.“Where do we go, then?” Scarlet wonders.“I’ve no idea.” You cleverly inform.“Let’s go to the reception and ask. That’s what they do, right?” Scarlet tilts her head. Is she joking or does she have no idea?Despite your confusion, she goes ahead with her own idea and the two of you leave to the reception. Unsurprisingly, they had no idea where their boss is or who Xavi is, you tried to describe him – but the man in charge just shakes his head. His shift just started so he has no idea what’s going on in general. Great.But the bad news barrage ends when Nurse Calamity surprises you by tapping your shoulder, she smiles upon seeing you.“Hey there, handsome. Quite a situation you left us today.” Nurse Calamity is as chill as ever.“I’m sorry, I didn’t know what to do. I still don’t.” Brainwashing is way out of your league.“I’m just kidding! We get a great amount of funding the more patients we get!” Kata giggles. “By the way, who’s the cute little missy standing next to you?” Kata stares at Scarlet. Oh right, they don’t know each other.“I’m Scarlet. Nice to meet you.” Scarlet doesn’t wait for you to introduce her.“Oh my, I said cute and you immediately thought I was talking about you? How vain, little missy.” Kata continues giggling. “It’s a joke, dear. Don’t take it seriously. I’m Nurse Katastrophic Calamity, it’s a pleasure to meet you.”“We met each other before I think. When I visited Johnny before.” Scarlet ignores half of the things Kata said.“You might be right, I’m sorry for forgetting.” Kata looks genuinely apologetic. “So tell me, dear, are you Johnny’s girlfriend?” Kata is waiting for a cute reaction, which Scarlet is about to give! But you put a stop to it.“Please no teasing for now. We have things to do.” You need to help people, gosh darn it!“Then follow me, my uncle and your friend are over here.” Kata leads the way with her singular walking. As hypnotic as ever, you hope she can’t feel you staring at her…
>>4023216“Excuse me, why did you assume Johnny is involved in all of this?” Scarlet brings a good point. “We haven’t said a word about—”“This is the only guy I know that can turn invisible.” Kata halts his walk to interrupt Scarlet, then she smiles and continues leading. Scarlet looks at you a little bit bewildered, you just shrug – you follow the nurse to wherever she’s taking you…Well you didn’t know what to expect, but you are back at the bunker! Kata explained almost all the rooms upstairs are occupied, so her uncle thought it was a good idea to use this place for something else than just, well, a bunker! It’s a strange feeling seeing these corridors with people running around than a deserted maze, but you welcome the change. You arrive to one of the biggest rooms inside here, the one you used to sleep in the day before Judgment Day. A bunch of beds are arranged next to each other, and in each one there is a girl being checked by some of the doctors, none of them seem to be reacting to anything they are doing to them. Some girls are being taken out of the place on wheelchairs, something Philonune believes to be quite dangerous.It would be an understatement to say Scarlet looks uncomfortable, but it’s something worth noting. Almost at the end of the room do you find the people you were looking for! Dr. Calamity is checking on one of the girls while Xavi is being interrogated by none other than the brotherless ace defective himself, Richard Wright… What is he doing here…?“They still at it?” Kata shakes her head upon seeing Richard going at it.“Johnny. It’s nice to see you again.” Dr. Calamity turns his attention away from the random girl to say hi to you! “Oho! And Scarlet as well.”“How are things going in here?” Scarlet meekly wonders as she looks at the “slaves” around her.“I’m not optimistic. We managed to identify most of them and contact their families, we hope that can help somehow.” Dr. Calamity gives you the bad news… “I’m hoping there is something we can still do… But I wonder what that can be.”Things aren’t looking great. But maybe there is something you can do!What do you do?>Try to talk to the girl who’s in front of you. Maybe you can wake her up?>Go where Xavi and Richard are and interrupt them.>Maybe you should bring Constance here and ask her to help people out.>Find Holly and help her out somehow.

>>4023217....wait, when did Kata know we turn invisible, did we ever get around to telling her?
>>4023395Do you remember when we first learned we could turn invisible and were running from Amelia? It was then
>>4023395She was there when we first did it and because she's one of the few people who can see flames she can still tell where we are
“I’ll try to do that something, doc.” You get closer to the girl in front of you. She’ll be your guinea pig!“So is it something related to those demons, is that the key?” Dr. Calamity seems fairly interested in what you’re trying to do.“I have no idea.” You scratch your chin. “I mean it’s demon magic, but aside from that – I know nothing.”“What are you planning to do?” Scarlet stands next to you, kind of like an assistant of sorts.“Uhm… Talk to her?” You might be tired! But your brain is still somewhat working! Dr. Calamity has a hearty laugh from your response, making Scarlet feel weirded out again.“Good luck then. I’ll check on those bad boys over there…” Kata walks towards Xavi and Richard, leaving you three to your gals.This girl in front of you, she looks quite familiar, like you’ve seen her a dozen times – but something doesn’t just click in your brain to remember her. She’s probably no one important, but still! She can be!“What can I say?” You mutter to yourself.“Hey, tell us your name please!” Scarlet takes your momentum and is the first one to ask.“…” The girl remains idle.“They simply don’t answer any questions. The young man who brought them here thought we could break the trance if we reminded them about their lives. We tried with the ones that we found out their names and contacted their families, but nothing worked in that regard. Not even their family members’ presence were effective.” Dr. Calamity explains. It couldn’t be that easy, huh?“So you know this girl’s name?” Scarlet makes a good question.“I do not, hence why I’m working on her. The people remaining here are the ones we haven’t been able to contact their relatives. The others are being brought out to the other rooms so they can stay with their families, of course, some of them are taking them out of the clinic. If we find a cure we’ll be able to contact them later. And if we can’t do anything soon with the ones we still have here– we’ll send them to a psychiatric ward to another hospital. We’re not capacitated here for this scale of patients of this type.” Dr. Calamity goes in depth with their own problems.“Maybe we should ask Constance about it? If it’s magic related, she will know how to counter it, right?” Scarlet makes a nice proposition. Still, you haven’t tried anything yet yourself.You worked miracles with Ajna, Nariko, the girl standing next to you, and more! You can do this, right…?What do you do?>Grab the girl’s face. She will have to react to something!>Scarlet’s right. Bring Constance here, she’s the key to all of this!>“Hey, my name is Johnny. Nice to meet you.”>Write In. (Last Reply of the day, we continue tomorrow!)
>>4023440>“Hey, my name is Johnny. Nice to meet you.”>Boop the nose
>>4023440>“Hey, my name is Johnny. Nice to meet you.”
>>4023440>>“Hey, my name is Johnny. Nice to meet you.”Look right into her eyes
>>4023440>“Hey, my name is Johnny. Nice to meet you.”>"I'm not sure if you're even listening to me but you look very familiar. Do I know you from somewhere?"
>>4023440>>4023459Supporting. But also have Philonune boop the snoot as well, actually Philonune is a 2000 year old soldier right? Shouldn't he have some experience dealing with broken soldiers and the like that have thousand yard stares? Also brainwashing is a thing armies sometimes do so ask him about it as well.
>>4023625I hope our sheer handsomeness makes her blush and get all hot and bothered, that'd be hilarious.
>>4023440Oh yeah, combine these>>4023459>>4023996I didn't even think of asking Phil.
>>4024143I just hope that we can get any emotions out of her in general
“Any ideas, Philonune? You’re a 2000 year old soldier, right? Hasn’t something like this happened before?”“I’m sorry, partner. But the only brainwashed soldiers I know were my fellow comrades. And I’m the only one I know of that broke out of the curse within his own means.” There is a mixture between sadness and pride in your partner’s words.“That’s kinda better, what did you do to break free?” You wonder.“Disillusionment.” Philonune puts it simple! Way too simple though, how can you disappoint someone who doesn’t react to anything? Is that even the kind of hypnosis she’s in?You’ll have to come up with something on your own. But perhaps Philonune is onto something! Something simple…“Hey, my name is Johnny. Nice to meet you.” You introduce yourself to the zombified girl! Would that work?“…” The answer is a resounding no.“I’m Scarlet!” Scarlet tries to play your game. Doesn’t work either. “It’s not working, Johnny…” You thank your teammate for stating the obvious.“Like I said, they don’t react to anything.” Dr. Calamity writes something on his clipboard.“I have another idea.” You adjust your glasses before committing to your next move!……You boop her nose!…After a couple of seconds, the girl scratches her nose for a second then goes back to being idle! That’s some type of progress, right?“That’s certainly new.” Dr. Calamity takes note.“They didn’t react to being touched before?” Scarlet wonders with obvious concern for the implications.“I’m afraid not.” Dr. Calamity shakes his head. Woah, then this is progress after all.Wait, you think she’s now looking at you! You see her empty eyes on you! You tilt your head and she follows your movement! Maybe you turned her on? Not in the lewd way that is…What do you do?>Tickle her.>Boop her nose again.>Offer her some water.>Grab her hands.>Ask her name.>Write In.

>>4025213supportingBe her Hero
Now that you have her full attention, it’s time to drive this home somehow! Maybe you need to play this out more intimately, make her feel like you’re her friend or something! You grab both of her hands and look her straight in the eyes. “What’s your name?” You try to sound as attentive and nice as you possibly can, you’re most likely sounding like a buffoon. Her hands are not as soft as you expected, you don’t know what that means in the grand scheme of things.“…” You can feel the emptiness in her stare, but that doesn’t mean she lost her attention on you, her mouth opens but no sound comes out, but then… “Posie…” She whispers in response!An excited Scarlet was about to gasp but covers her mouth in time not to interrupt the moment, Dr. Calamity continues taking more notes in his clipboard – you are trying to keep your composure to continue this streak going! You need to say something.“That’s a cute name, Posie. I have no idea if you heard me before but I’m Johnny.” You get a little bit closer!“…” She doesn’t respond at first but then... “I know you…” Kind of an eerie thing to say, but all right.“From where?” You’ve been wondering about this from the start.“…” But Posie doesn’t give you an answer. Damn it.She’s listening, but you don’t know how you got through her. Maybe she’s reacting because she knows you from somewhere, but Dr. Calamity discarded that idea before when mentioning the relatives of other victims didn’t have an effect on them. What makes you different? Or did you do something different? Or maybe she’s already cracking?What do you do?>“Tell me from where please.” Make her try to reach for that thought!>“Have someone told you how cute you’re, Posie?” Flirt to break her schemes!>Boop her nose again!

“Has someone told you how cute you are, Posie?” You try to break all her schemes with some good old fashioned flirting! You end it up with a nice wink! You feel so sleazy now…“…!” Posie starts blushing furiously! But aside from that she’s not moving!“W-Why are you flirting with her?” Scarlet couldn’t keep her mouth shut no longer after witnessing that. Is that jealousy?! The answer is no! She looks more confused than anything!“HAhahHAhahA…!” Dr. Calamity finds it hilarious, not the best time for a hearty laugh though.Distracted by the two people around you, you just noticed something important: Posie is on her feet!“I-I’m so sorry, I’m not prepared for this! E-Excuse me!” Posie makes a run for it and escapes the room, face all red! Did she receive so much second-hand embarrassment from your poor attempt at flirting that she felt no other option but to run away from you?! W-Wait, why didn’t you stop her?! She’s completely gone!The rest of the personal around just stared at Posie escaping like a cheap damsel in distress! Again, why did nobody stop her?! What’s going on?!You won that poor girl’s heart and reached Level 5 Handsomeness, Congratulations!“HahHAhahhHaha! You did it!” Dr. Calamity sees the positives. “I don’t think I’m going to be useful if that’s the cure.”“S-Shouldn’t you check on her…?” You question the doc’s methods for the first time.“Kinda late for that…” Scarlet just shakes her head. She turns to you and for some reason her face turns into a tomato. “W-Woah, what did you do…?”“Fail at flirting?” You would say this is the story of your life, but you’re pretty good at dating sims and you say this type of stuff jokingly most of the time.“Ehm… Ehm…” Scarlet shakes her head. “I’m sorry, please ignore me!”“Okay…?” You’re a little bit confused, but you will let it slide.But what you can’t ignore is the fact you’re more tired than ever. Even simple flirting is taking a toll on you.What do you do now?>You found the cure (maybe), time to go home and rest.>You still need to find Holly!>Check on Xavi and Richard…>Write In.
>>4025563>>Check on Xavi and Richard…Then blissful sleep
>>4025563>You found the cure (maybe), time to go home and rest.
>>4025563>>Check on Xavi and Richard…We should still check on Holly but I feel they won't be here for much longer
>>4025563>Check on Xavi and Richard…Kata needs to see our new look
>>4025563>You still need to find Holly!I just want to point out that this is the second time today that Johnny has used flirting to overcome the odds
>>4025563>Check on Xavi and Richard…
>>4025650What a hero
“Err… let’s check on those two.” You point towards Xavi and Richard! You need to finish your to-do list! Also Kata is chatting with them as well.“Oh, which one is the guy you helped out?” Scarlet wonders with genuine interest.“The small one.” You don’t have better words to describe Xavi.“Oh, cool.” Scarlet is scanning Xavi with her eyes, it’s a short process though, er, no pun intended, Xavi.“Well then, Ando. I must thank you for what you did. To be brutally honest with you, I don’t think your charms were the answer in this case– I believe the key comes from somewhere else. Something intimate. I’ll try to see what I can do for the rest of the patients, I’ll test my theory with the ones with their families.” Dr. Calamity seems optimistic now. “Good-bye for now, younglings. You both have done a splendid job today.”“T-Thanks, you too.” Scarlet is not used to those kind of words of praise.“Good luck, Dr. Calamity. We’re counting on you.” You give him a thumbs up. Maybe things aren’t looking so dry after all!You two walk towards where Xavi, Richard and Nurse Calamity are resolving their differences. Xavi is looking quite nervous while Nurse Calamity and Richard seem to be having a healthy discussion. You make your presence known by saying hi.“Hi.” What a unique way to introduce yourself to the conversation, you’re too tired to think up a creative entrance.“Y-You finally arrive, thank god almighty!” Xavi walks behind you, shielding himself from Richard. “That fashion plate wants to send me to jail!”“W-Wait, how did you recognize him?” Scarlet looks troubled because she thinks her mask isn’t doing its job.“He’s wearing the same clothes as before. Like I’m not blind, homegirl!” Xavi has a simple point, but Scarlet doesn’t know how to feel about it. Is it time to dawn a full costume like Wildflame? What would you be called, Mildflame?“I feel like we’re missing something here, care to explain what’s going on?” You ask out loud for someone to take the lead.“I’ll gladly do it: to put it simply, he was refusing to cooperate with us so the best course of action was to take it a step further. Normal procedure all in all.” Richard shakes his head. “Either way, it’s nice seeing you alive, Johnny Ando. Hopefully next time you’ll be looking healthy as well. Also there is something off about you.” He’s still as mildly annoying as ever. Nina told you he changed, right? You don’t see much of a difference.“I’m just a little bit tired, no biggie.” You pump yourself up.“If you say so.” There is something different appearance-wise about Richard but you can’t tell what it is – you’re just too tired to notice. “Now could you please tell your new ally to give me the information I need? I’m doing my research on the cult and time is of the essence.”
>>4025779“Maybe if we drop the accusations I would be more cooperative!” Xavi sounds nervous, he did a great work pretending to be a good minion with Foroutan, what’s wrong here?“See what I’m dealing with?” Richard looks annoyed.“I don’t know, mister. I get you’re in a hurry, but maybe you should try to relax just a liiiittle bit – if you want people to help you out! Works wonders in my experience!” Scarlet chimes in with her two Gor-cents and a cute smile.“See, this homegirl gets it!” Xavi is on board. “I just don’t want to go to jail, that's my only demand here..”“That will surely depend on what you’re going to tell me.” Richard is a man of principles. Annoying principles.You feel someone is being awfully quiet though…Where do you swing the balance at?>Tell Richard to at least promise Xavi he won’t get in trouble for what he’s going to tell you.>Tell Xavi he needs to cooperate if he wants to turn over a new leaf.>Tell Xavi you wanted to thank him for his help today and wanted to check on him, but you’re too tired to deal with this now. The Motley Crew will help him! You’re going home!>Write In.
>>4025783>Tell Xavi he needs to cooperate if he wants to turn over a new leaf. You'll back him up if he needs any help.>Ask Kata what was she discussing with Richard.
>>4025783>>Write In."Don't witnesses or informants get protective custody or something?"

>>4025783>Tell Richard to at least promise Xavi he won’t get in trouble for what he’s going to tell you.Adding >>4025803 also
“Don’t witnesses or informants get protective custody or something?” You wonder.“Indeed, you’re correct. I wasn’t going to deny him of such, but moments ago he wasn’t considering talking whatsoever – so the message might have gotten mixed up.” Richard sounds as reasonable as he can.“Then promise to the poor guy he won’t get in trouble for what he’s going to tell you.” You act like a second-rate lawyer for him.“Yep, I’ll gladly help out if you give me your word!” Xavi raises his hand.“Fine, I won’t get anything by antagonizing you all.” Richard relents with ease. “I’ll interrogate you in a quieter place.”“Interrogate? I don’t like that word. I don’t like police jargon. Can I have a lawyer with me? I think I should have a lawyer with me. What do you guys think? I don’t trust the police in this city. Have you heard about the things those guys do? Not. Good.” Xavi has fallen prey to his own nervousness. Richard just shakes his head in disappointment.“Are you a police officer, sir?” Scarlet seems fairly interested in Richard.“Police detective, it doesn’t matter much now.” Richard finally pays good attention to Scarlet, he then turns to you. “Who is she anyway?”“His good friend.” Scarlet holds your arm with a smug attitude. “Next time you should ask me directly.”“…My mistake.” Richard doesn’t look apologetic in the slightest. He doesn’t seem to have any interest in Scarlet after that exchange.“So do I call a lawyer or…?” Xavi asks you and Scarlet.“I prefer if it was only us two. I’ll hold my end of the deal and I’ll guarantee your protection and safety.” Richard extends his hand towards Xavi.“Sure…” Xavi reluctantly shakes hands with the ace detective. “This is a small price for what I did, I’ll see you lot later. Keep it fresh.” Xavi tries to play it cool as he follows Richard outside.“We will. You have my number if you need anything.” You give him a confident thumbs up.“Let’s have a nice chat to know each other next time!” Scarlet waves Xavi good-bye. Poor guy didn’t know where that came from since he had no idea Scarlet is involved.And so they left somewhere else for the interrogation to begin. You hope the best for Xavi despite not knowing him all that well, if he gets out of hand – you know Richard will know how to deal with him. You shouldn’t put yourself in the worst case scenario…You feel like you’re completely forgetting about something completely unrelated to what just happened…
>>4026124“I lament being so quiet during these last few moments, I was enthralled by my own thoughts –fufufufu.” Nurse Kata appears behind you two, making Scarlet skip a little.. And rightly so! She was talking to both Xavi and Richard, kind of rude of them to ditch her like that! Judging by her attitude she doesn’t mind. Kata seems to be more interested in you right now than them for some odd reason. “Before you go, I want to remind you that you still owe me a big big favor, pretty boy. I think your friend here is capable of helping you out as well.” She’s measuring Scarlet.“A-Anything to help out Johnny!” Scarlet the positive girl doesn’t know what she’s getting herself into. To be fair, you don’t know either!“How cute! That’s music to my ears, darling!” Kata giggles. “Maybe you two will get to eat my muffin if you impress me. But for now… Is there anything else I can help you with? I would love to help you two.” Nurse Kata is really getting pushy for unknown reasons. You like her attitude though! Scarlet is utterly dumbfounded with this interaction, you don’t know what’s so strange about it.What do you do?>Time to leave. Your work here is more or less done.

“I need to find a woman named Holly. She was one of the victims.” Tiredness won’t stop you from doing your best!“Doesn’t ring a bell.” Kata looks a little bit disgruntled because she wanted to be helpful. “Can you describe her to me?”“Middle age, pixie cut, blonde and has a tattoo on her right arm.” Good thing you didn’t mention her enormous personality.“Oh, I believe I saw her. Please follow me, pretty boy.” Kata leads the way! Scarlet grabs your arm before you move.“How are you holding up? You look like you’re going to faint any second now.” Scarlet is still worried about your well-being.“Eh? I’m fine! And if I wasn’t, I’m sure Kata would tell me otherwise.” You play it cool again.“I think she’s counting on it, you know…” Scarlet is implying something bad could happen. But why?“Counting on what? Me collapsing? Why would she do that?” You don’t get it. Nurse Calamity is consummated professional…! Despite not being an actual nurse and all that jazz.“Y-You’re right, just ignore me – I’m tired too. Haha…” Scarlet gives you a stiff laugh. You wonder what she is trying to imply here.Anyway, you two follow Nurse Kata to the section of the room where they are watching over Holly. She’s just sitting there unmoving while a random nurse is trying to make her react somehow, after indicating to Kata that that is the woman you’re looking for, she has a chat with this random nurse and she promptly leaves to check on a patient nearby.Unlike with the mysterious Posie, Holly is already looking at you, that’s a great sign!“All indictments say she’s healthy.” Nurse Calamity reads a clipboard attached to the bed. “Ms. Holly, how are you feeling?”“…” Holly doesn’t react to her name being called, she has all attention on you.“Well darling, it’s up to you.” Nurse Kata smiles.“So this is the woman… Trent… you know…” Scarlet starts blushing as she whispers the question into your ear. You stare at her to signal it’s not the time to talk about this, Scarlet looks away a little ashamed of herself. You stress that it’s fine though.What do you do? (All prompts from now on will require a roll! One for Johnny to not collapse.)>Hold her hands, look her directly into her eyes and flirt!

“Your son Howie is waiting for you. Please wake up.” You try to reach her maternal feelings! She might have a scumbag of a son, but if she believes he’s a good kid – it’s because she loves him, right?“Howie…” Holly whispers as she recognizes her own son’s name. She looks down for a couple of seconds then back at you and………Nothing else happens.“Ehm, Holly, you there?” The uncomfortable silence made you nervous and made you slip some words out of your mouth.“…” Holly remains silent, she continues to follow you with her eyes.“I don’t believe your charms are quite working on her, sweetheart. Her loss.” Nurse Kata has to bring you back to reality.“Maybe we should…” Scarlet hands a plan.Scarlet grabs Holly’s hands, now the brainwashed lady’s eyes are on your partner-in-crime, she looks her directly in the eyes! Is she trying to copy what you did to Posie?!“Please, Howie needs you!” Scarlet attempts to wake her up as well.“Howie…” But Holly remains in the same state.Scarlet drops her hands and looks distraught, she doesn’t understand how you got through Posie last time. Maybe Dr. Calamity was wrong and your charms weren't part of the trick after all… Or maybe you’re doing something else wrong here?What do you do?>Maybe call Trent? His voice is going to break her out of the trance!>Maybe it’s time for some good ol’ flirting.

Well if flirting worked to break the curse once, it can work again! Now the exact reason it worked earlier was thanks to the high amount of cringe you induced in that poor girl, but Holly is a different beast – so you need it to actually have the desired effect! And you know exactly who earned this woman’s heart… You pull your phone out of your pocket.“What are you doing, Johnny?” Scarlet snaps out of her negativity and notices you trying to pull out something.“Since I wasn’t much help, I’ll call someone she knows very well, he might be able to reach through her.” Time for Trent to be a hero!“Y-You’re actually calling Trent?!” Scarlet is completely taken by surprise. Good on her for actually guessing completely.“That nasty boy…?” Kata isn’t too thrilled hearing about Trent. “What kind of relationship does he have with her?”“Ehm! Y-You don’t really want to know, haha!” Scarlet panics without giving a proper explanation.“Now I’m really curious…” Nurse Calamity stares at Scarlet intensively. Despite Kata’s passive aggressiveness and hunger for gossip Scarlet doesn’t relent!On your side of things, the call connects and you hear Trent’s voice!“What?” Trent sounds busy.“You busy?” You almost forgot he always goes straight to the point. Almost.“Not particularly. What do you want?” Trent is willing to listen to what you have to say.“I need your help…” You start murmuring so Kata, Scarlet or anyone around here can’t hear what you’re saying. “Do you remember Howie’s mom?”“No.” Trent is heartless.“Y-You slept with her a week ago…” You’re dumbfounded.“Learn to take a joke.” Trent doesn’t know how to deliver them though! “Tell her she was a good bitch, but wasn’t worth 5k.”“Don’t say that...” Now that you know her, it kind of bothers you what he’s saying. “I need you to help her out. Let me explain…” You briefly explain what’s going on.“Right, and how am I supposed to make her snap out? You want me to go there?” Trent doesn’t see any logic in this situation. Hard to blame him.What’s the plan? (No roll required this time.)>Ask him to talk with Holly and lay down his “charms” on her once again over the phone!>Ask him to come over and work his magic on Holly!>Ask him to say some kind words to her over the phone!>Write In.
>>4027480>>Ask him to talk with Holly and lay down his “charms” on her once again over the phone!Just talk to her like you do last time
>>4027480>Ask him to talk with Holly and lay down his “charms” on her once again over the phone!
>>4027480>Ask him to say some kind words to her over the phone!
“Simple, just lay down your charms on her over the phone.” It’s simple enough, right?“Over the phone? Do you even know how this works? Shit ain’t that easy.” Trent sounds pissed but that’s nothing new. “No wonder you haven’t put your hands on bubble butt’s pride. By the way, say hi to her.” That has nothing to do with anything!Anyway, you turn to Scarlet and fulfill Trent’s request.“Trent said hi.”“Tell him to stop calling me bubble butt.” Scarlet dryly responds.“You heard him?” You thought you were being sneaky!“I just guessed… He’s the type of guy who you need to keep reminding of these kind of things.” Scarlet pouts with disapproval all written in her face.“Sorry…” You apologize for your friend’s behavior.You put the phone back on your ear and deliver the message!“She told you to stop calling her bubble butt.” You’re a mere messenger in this instance!“She’s listening to us?!” Trent sounds a little bit surprised, that’s new.“No, she just guessed.”“That Scarlet girl is not as naïve as she pretends to be, huh?” Trent now is in a better mood. “Whatever, I’ll handle the other bitch now.”“Give me second…”Now that Trent is ready, it’s time to see if this plan is going to work! You second guess yourself before putting the phone on Holly’s ear and hope for the best. As soon as she hears Trent’s voice, she puts her eyes on the phone instead of you. Holly now starts nodding, that’s progress! Then her face is turning redder and redder as her smile gets wider and wider – finally she carefully takes the phone out of your hands and listen to every word Trent is saying! Woohoo! Trent did it!…Why are you the only one who is looking at the positives here? Both Scarlet and Nurse Calamity seem unsure of what they are witnessing. Holly puts down the phone on the bed and stands up!“Master! I need to find Master!” Holly doesn’t sound like Holly here… “Tell me where Master Trent is! I’ll do anything for my master!” You think you fucked up.“Why does this not surprise me?” Kata shakes her head and gets closer to Holly, probably to restrain her if necessary. Scarlet just stares at the woman in complete shock.You take your phone back, the call ended… This is bad. This is real bad.What do you do…?>Tell her you’re Master Trent and your only wish is that she snaps out of the trance!>Boop her nose! That’s gotta work!>Overcome the odds and lay your charms on her! That’s the only way now!>Call Trent, ask him what the fuck he did!>Write In.

“Are you going to take me where Master is?” Brainwashed Holly asks Nurse Calamity with stupidly high enthusiasm. Nurse Calamity just shakes her head and then smiles at the middle aged woman.“Let’s wait for your master here, how does that sound?” Kata grabs one of Holly’s shoulders and helps her sit down. Huh, that was easier to stop her for now than you thought.“Master Trent said I should listen to the doctors and nurses here, and a kid with glasses and a redhead girl with a huge ass!” Holly recites like a stereotypical dumb model on TV.“…” Scarlet blushes furiously, she’s completely embarrassed. “I’m so going to talk with that idiot tomorrow.” She’s fuming in impotence!“That naughty kid was even naughtier than I originally thought.” Nurse Kata is really disappointed.“At least he didn’t completely screwed us over…” Scarlet is being way too kind with him. What did Trent tell this poor woman?!“I believe he did the second worst thing, dear.” Nurse Kata won’t let this slide that easily.Well if cringe worked before to make them snap out of it, it will work again! You will have to overcome this spell with your own charms! That’s the only way to save Holly from whatever this cheap porn plot she locked herself into! You walk up to her and grab her hands… The other two girls are staring at whatever you’re trying to pull up here.“Are you taking to my master?” Brainwashed Holly is very confused.You shake your head to make your hair move with the wind in the cringiest fashion you can think of, like a terrible shampoo commercial – and then make eye contact and give her the widest smile you are capable of!“Master? You don’t need no master when you have me. Holly, I like you for who you are, not for your boobs. You’re sexy in the inside and that’s what truly matters!” You seal with a wink.
>>4027962Oh my god, you feel like a cheap street clown, because a buffoon is too high class for you! You’re a complete embarrassment! You had to close your eyes from the pure shame you feel, you just don’t want to face reality…!….Why is everything so effing quiet…?…You look up to Holly and she’s completely dazed in a way you have only seen Nariko. Wait, does that mean…?!“Ooooh! Mr. Phil Noon!” Holly literally throws herself at you, both of you slip to the ground. She rubs her face on your chest. “Make love to me!”“Eh?” Your brain is not working properly. Did that do it? Or did you just make things worse?“Please Holly, he’s a minor!” Nurse Calamity takes her away from you.“Huh?! Then how long do I have to wait for him?!” Holly wants a piece of you! What the fuck. “I mean, I’m sorry! I don’t want to scare you!” Nurse Calamity is doing what she can to calm Holly down.Scarlet helps you stand up…“Johnny. We gotta go. Now.” Scarlet doesn’t want to hear no more of your excuses.“I… What…” You’re so confused, tired and astonished you can’t do anything.“Exactly. You need to sleep…” Scarlet drags you away from the room.You’re feeling really tired now… Things are starting to look blurry…This can’t be good…That’s it for this thread! Thanks for Playing! See ya next time!
>>4027964I don't even know why I thought the solution would be more complicated then this. Flirting is tried and true tacticThanks for running
>>4027964Huh....guess when we see Howie again we can say we fucked his mom, and that she is a nice lady.
>>4027962>>4028000>>4028220did we break her?
>>4028777She doesn't have the creepy blue shit around her eyes anymore and she's not calling us master so it's safe to assume she's not mind controlled, just very thirsty. She's probably not used to hearing the words "I like you for who you are, not for your boobs"
Did maxing out handsomeness unlock Kata as a waifu? I really want her muffin.
>>4030538Max is 7 and she definitely wants the cock
>>4030538She wanted thecock for a long time now, we just got a warning that she is a bit yandere and it's a bad idea. We accidentally seduce tons of women already anyways.
