I am Daniel Speltin, top tier waste of potential and mid tier student, all round unimportant person about town. I gape back at Mia, as my brain takes a few seconds to process this. Fucking finally some good news. "That's great." I manage finally, leaning down and wrapping Mia in a hug. "She's awake, and she's talking and everything." She sniffs, I can feel her eyes dampening my suit's shoulder, and evidently so can she. She pushes off, sniffing her tears back and apologising."I'm.... I think I'm gonna go see her." Mia tells me. "Like, now. Is that okay? I'm sorry." >"Say hi for me">Go with her>Bring Rosa and Claire too
>>36425749>Bring Rosa and Claire too
>>36425749>Check with Rosa and Claire to see if they're interested in sticking around at the ball any longer>Take them with you anywayPerfect excuse to leave with time before 11pm
>>36425749>Check with Rosa and Claire to see if they're interested in sticking around at the ball any longerThis party kinda sucks.Then >Go with her
>>36425749>Bring Rosa and Claire tooThis party is kind of lame anyway.
The one thing we have to keep in mind is we have to stick with rosa
I lean down and kiss her forehead. "It's fine, lemme just grab the others and we'll go check on her.""O-kay" Mia nods and waves me out the door, wiping the corners of her eyes again and pushing me out the door.I slam my palms on the table as I arrive, getting the other girls attention. "Mia's mum woke up." They both gasp happily, "Now this ball is shit, so let's go check on her." They nod and follow, Mia emerges from the bathroom and meets us outside. It's a quick walk to the hospital, and we kind of stick out in our fancy clothes, but we stride up to the bench. "Janine Wick?" The nurse asks, spotting Mia, who nods. "She's feeling a lot better... but maybe just don't all go in at once? It could... overexcite her." Mia nods and wanders down the hall, determined stride.The nurse runs off, as some guy is carted in with severe acid burns on the left side of his face, being wheeled down the other hall. "D-dad?" Claire gasps, staring after to the cart, being wheeled away down the hall. "Was that my dad?" She starts trying to jog in her heels after the cart, "Hey! I THINK I KNOW HIM!" >What do?
>>36425851Shrug.Have Rosa go with Mia and us go with Claire.
>>36425851"Fuck every time someone wakes up from a coma someone else falls into one. Rosa you stay with Mia I'll go see if Claire needs help."
>>36425851Ask the Nurse if that was Mr Miller.
>>36425866This, muttering "Bloody hell..." under our breath
"Every god damn time someone wakes up, someone new goes into a coma." I whip around to Rosa. "Go with Mia, I'll go see if Claire needs help."She nods and flounces off, as I run after Claire.I find her banging on a door of bulletproof glass, screaming at the nurse on the other side, the door clearly only opens with a button from the other side.Through the door, a red sign flicks on, saying 'Now Operating' over a set of double doors. "That's my dad you piece of shit, let me IN!" Claire vents, punching the glass again. The glass cracks slightly and her hair rustles around her head. "I! WANT! TO! CHECK! ON HIM!" She pounds on the glass again, as the nurse on the other side picks up a phone, looking scared.>Write in
>>36425924Put a hand on her soldier and try to pull her in for a hug. Try not to do anything that would give her the strength to break the door though.
>>36425924Pull Claire back."Claire! Calm down, you're not helping! They're operating on him right now, and you're not even sure if it's your dad!"
>>36425924>punching through bulletproof glass>WITHOUT us giving her extra strengthClaire stronkWe should probably stop her though, with a hug or something
>>36425924>>36425938This, calm her down, soothe her
>>36425924Grab Claire"Bitch can't you see the operating sign? That means they're doing surgery, surgery means if they fuck your dad's going to get fucked up too.""Besides, what makes you think it's Master Miller?"
>>36425924Calm down Claire. Don't disturb working doctors, that is really not helping.
>>36425924If that is your dad, going in there is just going to get you in the doctors way and slow them down. Besides they need a sterile environment to do their work, you go in you could make it worse.>>36425946Thing is I think the more time they spend with us the more powerful they get, at the beginning of the story i'm pretty sure she wouldn't be able to do that.
I grab her from behind and try to pull her back into a hug. "Calm down Claire! You aren't helping. Okay? He's being operated on now, and besides, you're not even sure it's him." Claire growls and bucks in my grip for a few seconds. "I have to-" She loosens my arms and rushes back to the door, "I need to-" She pounds it one more time, "I want... my dad." She finishes it by slumping away from the door, as the glass rattles in it's frame, the nurse staring in fear at us."Going in there would only slow them down." I tell her gently, walking over and wrapping an arm around her shoulder.Claire gives me a sidelong look, filled with a black anger. "You think I don't- RRRRRGH!" She shoves me off again and starts strutting away down the hall, before kicking a door open and locking herself in some random room. >Write in
>>36426009Knock on the door. "I'm going to go check on Mia. Text me if you need some to talk to... Claire he's gonna be alright."
>>36426009We have Mr. Miller's numbe right? trying calling him first.
>>36426009Go to the nurse's station and ask for the name of the person who just went into the OR.
>>36426009>>36426020this then"Claire, open the door, come on, sulking isn't going to help, come on out and let's go check up on Mia's mum, the docs will let us know about your dad as soon as theres any news."
>>36426020>>36426031we should do these first
>>36426020i dont think we have his number
>>36426051Yeah, last time we tried to reach him by phone, we went through Claire.
>>36426051He called us earlier? I think? Wit the whole ""Where is my daughter thing." Idk it that was our, or Claire's phone tho. Can someone not lazy check.>Call Mr. Miller on the off chance Claire cant recognize her father. Double check this stuff.
>>36426009Ask the nurse if she knows/has he been identified, then try calling him whist talking Claire out of the locked room.
I sigh, grasping my head. "It's always something."I walk back to the entrance and find the nurses station. "Hi, sorry, the guy they just wheeled in with the acid burns.... I think I know him, could you tell me his name?"The nurse clicks through the computer. "Reports say he..... Oh. Classified. Sorry kid." He makes a zipping motion across his lips. "Big stuff, can't talk. His next of kin will be notified... when the situation is resolved." I stare through the window, biting back the choice insults I have, and pounding a fist into my thigh. Fucking great.I lament the fact that I don't have his number. What kind of shit boyfriend am I? I pace up the hall again, trying to make a decision.>Go check on Mia and Rosa>Knock on Claire's door>Check operating area
>>36426083Yes, he did call us before. Giving it a ring would be the best option since the nurses might not know who they're operating on yet.If it goes through we can put Claire on a settle this whole mess.Of course, that isn't going to happen so let's try finding someone to ask who's in the operating room whilst it's ringing.
>>36426095>Knock on Claire's door
>>36426083FUCK. He did call. Rosa's phone...>>36426095Yes Claire saying if she wants to talk she can call us. Then go check on Mia and rosa
>>36426095>Remember that his number will be in your dial history. You can easily work out which is his since you barely have anyone you call>DIAL ITYou ain't getting out of this one Chuckles
>>36426117He didn't call rosa's phone, why'd he even know her number?
>>36426119He called Claire's phone when she was in the bathroom...we answered it
>>36426119>>36426117>>36426099he called claires phone guyscaptcha was opbless son sooooooo
>>36426132Claire's phone whatever
>>36426133Ah true, better get claire's phone then
>>36426095>Knock on Claire's doorRight now we can't do shit for Claire's dad. What we can do is help Claire cool off, and be rational.
>>36426174She's gonna try to rape us again. And this time I doubt she'll stop.
I hope I'm not about to intrude on some dying cancer patient, as I knock on the door I think Claire went through. "What?" She asks sullenly.Thank Christ. "Claire? You okay?""Dandy. Fuck off." She says flatly, something slams into the other side of the door. "Think ya so fucking smart." I hear her mutter through the door.""I asked the nurses at the front, and they said whoever that was, they were gonna call his next of kin soon." I tell her, hopefully."Boy that sure is super neato." Something heavier slams into the door. "Now, fuck OFF!">Write in
>>36426198"I'm sorry..." Go check on mia
>>36426198Go check on Mia.
>>36426198"This is a boyfriend asking his girl to seriously think about this, so here goes. Claire, what are you doing?"
>>36426198>Fuck off and go to Mia.also tell Claire to call us if she needs anything.
>>36426198"Claire baby please, I know you're hurting, I just want to hold you and be with you, please, I want to be in there with you."if she doesn't open the door then "Look, if that is your Dad, then he'll be alright, it was only some acid burns and the docs are taking care of him right now, so please just calm down. I'll be checking up on Mia and Rosa if you want me."
>>36426198"Claire will you marry me?"
>>36426198> You'll have to break my legs because I'm not going anywhere.
>>36426235Made me laugh.But still No, this is really not the time for that.(also we marry Rosa for money, and keep Claire as family mistress)
>>36426198"How about we call your dad, he doesn't answer then we show up and see what happened. That way we know for sure if it's him, besides if someone else did this don't you want to beat the shit out of them?"Maybe this?
>>36426259This followed by "Also, you've got your phone right? I wanna ring your dad incase it's not him in the room across."
>>36426264nah we'll marry all of them, but nows not the time
>>36426198"I don't think on smart, I'm the dumbest and densest person on this damn planet.""I can barely understand anything which goes on in my life, I can barely cope with everything that happens in my life.""I just want you to be happy Claire, I want us all to feel happy and get along together."
"Claire... I'm sorry. Call me if you need anything? I'll check in on Mia, okay?" Silence, broken by a grunt of acknowledgement. I take a few deep breaths, waiting for any response, but none comes. I sigh and walk away, back to Janine's room.Mia sits by the top of the bed, fluffing her mother's pillows and practically glowing with happiness. Or maybe she is glowing.... does Mia glow? I don't think soooo. Besides the point."Ah there's the boy." Janine smiles and waves me in. "Mia says you've been ttaking good care of her while I was out." I sit on the arm of Rosa's chair and stare at the blue haired women.>Write in
>>36426307No problem ms(Mias mom name?), it was pleasure being with her.
>>36426307"Anything for a friend, do you know how long they're keeping you here for?"
>>36426307"I'm trying my best."Check the time, don't want to be late getting Rosa home.
>>36426307> I have been on yours daughter's care many times as well. She is a wonderful girl.
>>36426307>>36426338ThisAlso ask Mia to draw a teddy bear for Claire and manifest it in her arms
>>36426307"I'm trying... God I'm trying..." Then put our head in our hands and try not to cry.
"I'm trying my best." I manage to smile back. Janine smiles. "Glad to hear it. Dave is... well he's not exactly parenting material, despite our attempts, isn't h Mia?" Her legs still aren't moving, lying flat on the mattress, as Mia grunts quietly in assertion. "Either way, thank you, you're a lovely boy." She makes a flickering motion of her eyebrows at Mia, and her daughter blushes.I take the chance to check my phone. Holy shit it's almost ten thirty already. I guess that walk to the hospital wasn't as quick as I thought it was.>Stay with Mia the night>Take Rosa home>Check on Claire
>>36426374I like the drama
>>36426428>>Check on Clairewhile on the way to >Take Rosa homeTell Claire we're taking Rosa home and that we'll be back after that
>>36426428>Check on Clairethen>Take Rosa home
>>36426429I dontIts been so fucking long since we last did any SoL funtime stuff at home
>>36426428>Check on ClaireMost important. Mia can stay with her mom and I trust Rosa to go home alone, hell she can take a taxi home. Also call our own mom and dad and tell them that we and Claire will be staying the night at the hospital as Claire's dad is in surgery.
>>36426428"Mia. Can you check on Claire for me... I gotta get Rosa to her place but she needs someone."
>>36426428>Take Rosa home>Check on Claire on the way out.
>>36426442Yeah luke a whole thread ago !
>>36426428>>Take Rosa home>>Check on Claire on the way out.
I stand again and wave goodbye to Mia and her mum. "Glad to see you're feeling better, but Rosa is supposed to be home soon."Janine waves us to the door. "Go ahead, you crazy kids. I'm just sorry for ruining your ball."I shake my head, as Rosa joins me. "Not at all, it was actually kind of boring anyways. Have a good night's sleep."Mia purses her lips as we step out, shutting the door behind us. Out in the hall, I nudge Rosa in the ribs. "I'll get you home, but I think I shoul check on Claire first... She was kinda freaking out."Once more, I knock on the door, "Claire?""Mrrm?" She grunts, sounding annoyed still. "Has anyone called you?" I ask, hoping it might have resolved itself."No." Her answer is brutally short. "Go point out how smart you are somewhere else, okay? Stupid Claire is gonna wait here." Rosa winces at this. "Claire, you're not st-" "Yeah I am." She cuts in. "Just leave me alone." >What do?
>>36426564come on get we are gonna walk rosa home then we are gonna go and talk
>>36426564"Claire you're not stupid at all, but I've got to get Rosa home now, you should try calling your dads phone. I'll come back here when I've taken Rosa home, I'll be back soon, love you."
>>36426564"I-I'm taking Rosa home now. If you want to come back to my place I'll wait for you out side. If not... Claire..." Then head off holding back tears.
>>36426564Go take Rosa home, then come back here afterwards.
Claire wants to wallow in self pity telling her she is not stupid might just piss her off more so try to get her moving have her help take rosa home
>>36426604yeah nah we're not doing this, we're coming back after dropping Rosa offstop being so much of a faggot
>>36426564"Okay, I'll be back shortly, I have to get Rosa home."
>>36426564Claire you are far from stupid and we both know. Look I have to take Rosa home, i'll be back after ok? Love you.
>>36426564"help me take Rosa home i'm not as strong or athletic as you and i don't want to get injured again; so come help me"
>>36426564being good at school doesnt mean your smart.
>>36426645o god, i just noticed my grammar. jesus. wow.
>>36426564> You are not stupid, you just like to do prettu stupid shit from time to time. Lile that fucking bruises joke thing.> Look. I'll get Rosa home and when I come back we will deal with this together. I don't give a fuck of you hate me now or anything, I'll kick that door down and force you to cooperate if necessary.
>>36426674add "you stayed by my side when I needed it so i'm going to be here for you."
"Claire... you're not stupid, okay?" She snorts inside. "You're not! Listen, I have to take Rosa home, but I'm coming right back and we can sort this out." "Go then. Leave me the fuck alone already." At least she didn't throw anything this time, r-right?I sigh and start to walk away, tugging Rosa along. "What's going on, why's she so convinced she's dumb?" Rosa asks, leaning on me.I sigh, "I think she got pissed when I tried to treat her like an idiot, she was trying to break into the operating room, and I talked down to her when I was trying to calm her down."Rosa winces "Ouch. Mighta screwed the pooch on that one." She flicks me in the ribs slightly. "Probably not a good idea to piss off a girl who can snap you like a twig." She reprimands as we step outside."Yeah I know that... it's just, it's hard okay?" I brush my hair up my forehead and take a few more deep breaths.Rosa nods. "I know it is. I'm sorry we're all crazy and messed up in the head. We expect to much of you... even me. And I'm sorry for that." She leans up and kisses my cheek softly. "But we all do appreciate you helping us out. Claire would do anything to keep you alive, and Mia... well I don't think I need to say what her life would be like without us."I nod. "Mmm. Thanks Rosa."She just winks as we start to walk up the footpath to her house. "You know me, someones gotta try and be the level headed one, right?" She stretches a grin on her face and slugs me on the shoulder lightly. I check my phone. "One minute past Eleven. Shit, and we were so close." Rosa smiles and tiptoes forward briefly, kissing me on the lips. It's chaste, and sweet and brief, and in a whiff of flowers, she dances back. "One past Eleven and thirty seconds." She corrects me." She glances upwards, pointing at the window to her room, "Unlesssss?" She asks, eyebrow quirked.>Write in
>>36426801"Claire needs me..."
>>36426801i want to but Claire she needs me right now
>>36426801"While I would love to fuck you until you can't feel your legs any more, forgive me if this business with Claire has kinda put me in the wrong mood"Kiss her, hug her goodnight.
>>36426801I'd love too, but if I don't get back soon Claire might literally kill someone. Rosa thanks for being awesome.
>>36426820>>36426824>>36426834>>36426844>>36426847...am I an idiot for thinking she just wants to sneak in through her window to avoid getting called out for missing curfew? I'm not understanding why everyone's just jumping straight to lewd.
>>36426801"I can give you a boost up, and your magic powers should be enough to get you up there. That's one way to avoid your Dad who is undoubtedly waiting in the foyer."
>>36426801Resist temptation to lewd, back to claire.
>>36426872i think your right but but the Claire thing fucked with us
>>36426872That's what I also thought.
>>36426801"I'll give you a boost up to your window but then I gotta run back to the hospital."
I clap my hands on her shoulders. "I would love nothing more than to fuck you until you can't feel your legs anymore, but I really need to check on Claire, alright?"But Rosa nods and smiles, patting me on the cheek. "Good boy. I woulda smacked your shit down if you said yes." She steps back and looks at her window, one eye closed. "Now if you don't mind..."She leaps upwards, catching the ledge of her window, even as her dress flutters in the breeze, offering an admittedly pleasant view of her squirming her way through her window."Niii~iiight" She calls out. I wave back and set off, trying not to think about how hard Rosa could probably smack me if she tried. I don't think my spine could handle it.I shudder at the mental image of my head spinning like a top on my neck, as I run through the warm night air, starting to sweat through the suit.The nurse buzzes me back into the hospital main, under the impression I forgot my keys.I dash back to the room and knock, "Claire? I'm back, do you want to talk?"Silence. Nothing, not even a grunt now.>What do
>>36426952Is it locked?
>>36426952She's likely fallen asleep.Check the OR, and see if the operation is completed.
>>36426952Text her. There's probably a cancer patient in there.
>>36426952Test first then if no response try to open the door. If she isn't there look for her.
>>36426952She probably left, ask the nurse about it, then text her.
>>36426872You might be right, but THIS IS chuckles buttTickler,the pope of slaanesh, the corrupter of minds, the anus poker, jester of porn and pervert extraordinare.
>>36426952Open the door slowly, if no one is there ask a nurse about the acid burn victim again. Claire might have gotten a call.
>>36426952Call/text her. Probably text, as calling tends to be not allowed in hospitals.
>>36426986Don't forget he's a nazi who got heat exhaustion from all the Jews he killed. Fact.
>>36426952ask a nurse if that saw her leave
>>36426996where did this come from?
>>36427012He got heat exhaustion from standing in front of an oven all day. We know what he was doing.
>>36427017jerking off into cream pies
>>36427017hahaha. i remember now
>>36426996He works in the grammar section, so not in the nazi bakery.Also, he cuts the sphincter of his victims and uses then as rings and bracelets.
>>36426996Dude he was baking CAKES. It just sounded racist due to the Oz accent.
>>36426952call her then check at the OR and ask the nurses
>>36427042Man why do all Australians except for the Crocodile Hunter sound racist.
>>36427073cuz they are full ya cunt
>>36427073great no im thinking of that quest sentinel runs
I whip my phone out and dial Claire quickly. If I hear her phone ring, I'll al least know she's pissed off and inside still.Nothing sounds inside the room, as the call connects. "What?" She asks, still sounding grumpy."Claire, where'd you go?" I ask, trying to keep the sound of desperation out of my voice. "What do you care?" She sulks bitterly. "I care, because I love you, okay? Now please... just tell me you didn't break into the OR or anything.""Yeah... that's what stupid Claire would do. Isn't it. Just break everything and kill everyone." She sighs. "I went home Daniel." I wince at the use of my full name, she hasn't called me that, ever. "Leave me alone." The call drops, and when I redial, the connection doesn't go through, she's turned her phone off."God dammit Claire, really?" I mutter, stowing the phone again.>What do?
>>36427135go to the trailer park if shes not there head home
>>36427135Ask a nurse or doc about the guy, check on his status.Text her that we're sorry and that we love her.Then swing by the trailer park to see if she's there on the way home.
>>36427135Alright, time for a jog.Jog all the way there, knock on the door and do the trick we did with Marie.
>>36427135Go home. Bugging her is just gonna make her more upset. Go home. Lie in bed. And pet shoe.
>>36427185Staying outside the door and waiting
>>36427135Go home, and feed Shoe. Give Claire her space, because all we do is remind her of how stupid she gets when she's emotional.
>>36427249>>36427192These leave her alone
I text Claire one last time, telling her I love her, before stopping by the nurse's station. "I'm sorry sir, but unless you're immediate family, we can't divulge any information on that patient for some time." The nurse gives the typical reassuring smile of the medical profession.Of course.Well, time for a run. I loosen my tie and sling my jacket over my shoulders, before taking off towards the caravan park on the far side of town.It's nearly midnight, by the time I arrive, huffing and puffing at the gates to the park. Using an old trick Claire showed me, I hitch the bottom of a saggy section of fence up and haul myself under it, dirtying myself severely in the mud in the process, but I'm in.Wandering through the caravan park at night is intimidating in it's own way, the smell of greasy take out meals rot from bins everywhere, and the sounds of public television blaring out state approved news.Finally I find Claire's caravan, and walk up to the door. The lights are on, but her Dad's car is gone.One last deep breath, before I knock.The inner door opens, revealing Claire, barefoot and wearing a tattered pair of old clothes she left behind. "What?" She asks, I spot her ball dress, balled and thrown on the counter.The thin fly wire door still stands shut between us, her face unreadable, as she stands back lit from inside.>Write in
>>36427301"I need to be with you right now"
>>36427301"I'm sorry, I'm sorry for being a stupid idiot, I just wanted to come by and say I'm sorry and that I love you and that I'm here for you if you need anything."
>>36427301"Do you know where I put shoe's food I can't find it."
>>36427301Claire im sorry I talked down to you at the hospital. You aren't stupid, I was just trying to clam you down. The last thing i'd ever want is to hurt or insult you.
>>36427301"quit shutting me out you have stuck with me for god knows how long now and you are going to try harder then that to get rid of me"
>>36427301"You know, you look so much better in that than that dress"
>>36427301"Claire how long have we known each other because i cant remember so talk to me"
>>36427301"Claire, I'm sorry for talking down to you at the hospital. You stuck by me for all these years, so I'm going to stick by you, like it or not."
To be honest we didn't talk down to her. We said what ducking everyone says when your loved one is in the hospital. Calm down we cant hekp now. She's feeling guilty over the time spent with Danny and ignoring avoiding her dad. Now he might be gone.
"I just wanted to say I'm sorry for talking down to you. I didn't mean it. Really, I just wanted to calm you down a bit." I admit."And?" She asks, crossing her arms."And I'm here if you need anything. At all. Promise. You stuck with my bitch ass for thirteen years, so I'm sticking with you." She unfolds her arms, tilting her head slightly "And?" She asks, sounding amused. "And I think you're even more beautiful in what you're wearing right now than you were in that dress." I tell her, resting my forehead against the door. "So can I please come in?"With a sigh, she unlocks the fly wire door. "Well when you act like such a pathetic little bitch, how could I possibly say no?" She asks, and I think I make out a smile on her face, before she turns and walks deeper into the caravan.I let myself in. The place reeks, and some pans have something molten and black melted in to them. Claire tried to make something to eat.She walks into the bathroom and shuts the door behind her quickly. The lock doesn't click. Wait does that door lock? >What do?
>>36427301"You have anything to drink in here?"If yes - proceed to silently drink with her till the call comes or you both drift off to sleep.
>>36427590talk to her through the door tell her about the about the abandoned gym with it equipment still in it
>>36427610Find something to drink. Pour glasses. Stay mostly silent. Just be there for her.
>>36427590Call for pizza delivery.
>>36427590First, get the pans into the sink, and start them soaking with some dish detergent and hot water; we can clean them later.Lay out her dress so it doesn't wrinkle, and do the same with our clothes.The pants will need to go to the dry cleaner, but the shirt we can at least start soaking. We don't want it to stain.We've probably still got mud on us, so go into the bathroom with Claire. Tell her we found a gym with still intact equipment for us to loot before it all gets demolished.
>>36427590Make something drinkable (coffee, cacao, whatever they have there).Also see if you can get rid of tings causing the stench, and ask if she wants us to make snack for her?
>>36427669Potential for "I am so dumb I can't even cook without failure" thoughts. Is not really good in this situation.
>>36427669Are we going to become the house wife in this relationship.
>>36427626This i guess. You might need a drink after all the emotional rollercoastering.
>>36427713>Potential for "I am so dumb I can't even cook without failure" thoughts.Those thoughts are already there, seeing as how there's something burned onto the pan already.Getting the pans started on soaking isn't going to make it any worse than it already is.
I decide to give her some space, leaving her in the bathroom, I walk back to the kitchen. I shift the pans into the sink and squirt some detergent over them, before heading for the fridge, laying the dress out a bit more evenly along the way.It's nearly empty now. Two cans of beer remain, some old packets of that green workout sludge Claire likes to drink apparently 'just add water' and some bottled water, looks cold, even if they are a store brand.>What do?
>>36427766Order pizza. I'm sure someone works 24/7Drink beer.
>>36427766>'just add water'
>>36427766fuck it make the green sludge
>>36427766Get as much mud off of us as we can.Knock on the bathroom door, ask Claire if she wants any of the green stuff.>>36427778We can't order pizza, we don't have any money.
>>36427828Haven't we got some for the ball from the parents? I thought we had.
Sludge!Also we should get some instant coco packets and hide them at Clare place for emergencies.
>>36427985ohhh look tree shit
>>36427985Other things we need to get and hide at Claire place for emergencies:Canned foodToothpasteBrushesBalloonsDragon dildoes???
I bite two packets open and pour them out into empty glasses, left on the bench. They smell like old booze, but a good rinsing out leaves them workable.I pull my phone out and order a 24 hour pizza place, ordering Claire's favourite, Hawaiian with added capsicum, feral food, but she loves it.I pour her drink out and leave it on the bench, sitting at the still disintegrated table, in the terrible seats, sipping the vomit flavoured and consistency drink.Eventually Claire walks out and skulls her whole drink in one. "I'll pay for the pizza." She murmurs, sitting opposite me. Crooking one leg up on the chair, she starts to pick at her toenails."It was in here, where we first... well no that was the library, but in here was more... proper I guess." She glances up, with a faint smile, "Even if you were molesting me." "I wasn't mol-" She waves a hand, "Semantics. Look dude. Point is... I kinda miss this place. And my dad. I barely saw him even before we started fucking like rabbits, but I didn't see him for a month straight this time, nearly two." She gestures to her phone, now turned back on. "And now I don't- I don't even know- know if-" She's hiccuping as she tries to hold back her tears. "Claire." I lean forwards, resting a hand on her leg. She just shakes her head. "Sh-shut up, I'm not crying- hic- cryings for pussies." >Write in
>>36428013Start licking her face.
>>36428013hugs and kisses must be delivered
>>36428013"I can stay here for a few days if you want. Bring Shoe with me. But if you don't wanna see my big dumb face I can go home."
>>36428013Pull her into a hug."Then how about a hug?"
>>36428013Hug her, "you can always say its raining Claire.
>>36428013>"If it makes you feel any better I'll kill off my parents and we can be orphans together"
>>36428059"Yeah, probably shit plumbing"
Spess Monkeys when?
>>36428013Shhh... No tears. Only l-lewd now.
I move across to the opposite seat and hug into her. "Okay. You're not crying. Let's just say it's raining."She glances at me sidelong. "Sh-shut up." She cuffs the back of her fist upwards into my shoulder. I just nod into her shoulder. "Hey, I have an idea, when ya feel up to it. Instead of spending your money on equipment... there's this old gym in the abandoned district, fulla shit. Bet we can steal it."Claire snorts back a few tears, wiping her eyes. "I do like stealing." She giggles quietly. "Must be genetic." She whips a few more tears off her cheeks and pats my grip lightly, to get me to let go. "C'mon, pizza'll be here soon." She grabs her wallet and leaves, returning with a pizza, covered in greasy cheese, ham and pineapple, soiled with capsicum. "Mmmmm. Capsicum." Claire purrs. She rips a slice out of the box and wags it in my face. "Want some?" She asks. "I mean... I paid. But I guess you deserve something nice for being a nice little bitch tonight." She winks, tossing the box down on the bench and setting into her own slice, mouth shiny and strings of cheese hanging from her teeth, as she waves it in my face.She and I both know I hate capsicum, but at least she cracked a proper smile.>Write in
>>36428208soon ish?ill probably run it next, whenever that is
>>36428390>Eat it and wince emphatically>Be the little bitch, it seems to cheer Claire up
>>36428390eat some then kiss her
>>36428390Try to get as much capsicum off of a slice as we can, before eating.Make sure to get a clean wet rag later to clean up.
>>36428390Eat terrible food.
>>36428390Bite off as much capsicum as we can, kiss Clare, and push it in her mouth?Otherwise just put your capsicum on hep piece.
>>36428390"Well at least it isn't raining for your little bitch tonight, huh? AND you would have denied a man, practically dying from hunger a tiny bit of deliciousness? How cruel. Whatever, less talking more sharing pizza."
Bitch does like her capsiCUM.am i fun yet?
>>36428518I really don't get the whole cum shot on pizza fetish thing.but no you are not that fun jet. Needs more anchovy.
>>36428586>I really don't get the whole cum shot on pizza fetish thing.Well, you know that she loves that extra sauce.> not fun yetIt's hard to get my SLICE of pizza puns.
>>36428518No. Keep trying.>>36428652Still no.>>36428514Delicious Sayian Monkey Pride.
>>36428652Your puns are old and CRUSTy
>>36428661Well, pizza puns ARE kind of CHEESY
I take it and bite down, wincing emphatically, as the horrid grainy texture of it crunches between my teeth, bitter flavour ruining anything enjoyable about the pizza.Claire, for her part, snickers and leans down, leaving a greasy kiss mark on my cheek. I eat it as slowly as possible, oh god I think it's giving me indigestion. My stomach heaves and gurgles, as I set mine down, hiding the half eaten piece back inside the box. "Good boy." She pats my cheek and kisses me again. I guess it's okay when she condescends to me, is it? What the fuck ever. I quickly duck into the bathroom, purposefully throwing it up before the indigestion really sets in.Finally, I emerge, gargling away the last of the flavour and vomit in the sink."I hate you." I grimace at her, forcing a smile. Claire, for her part, just throws up a peace sign and saunters away to her bedroom. There's that lovely bitch I know. >Follow Claire>Head home, give her space>Call
>>36428652>>36428681These jokes are too cheesy. You guys have to learn to be more subtle.
>>36428697"Fine I'll just walk home, alone, in the dark, on prom night, when monsters are the most likely attempting to ruin the personal lives of protags. I'm sure I'll be fine... Please carry me home"
>>36428697>Follow ClaireNo getting rid of us after that treatment
>>36428697Trow up?Jeesh, that's well beyond hating the stuff.>Head home, give her space
>>36428697Follow claire, cuddle and sleep. Not the time for lewds unless she ask us to fuck her to oblivion.>>36428699It's not like we could DELIVER good pizza puns.
>>36428754Oh you SAUCY boy. Can't help yourself from getting a SLICE of the action,
>>36428697>Follow Claire Offer to spend the night with her. Call Mia to check if she is okay.
>>36428717Her dad is in hospital, using guilt trips now will make us look like an ass.
>>36428697>>36428778ThisIf we do spend the night here, call our folks to let them know where we are.
>>36428807But we are an ass.
>>36428697>Follow Claire>call parents to let them know we're spending the night at Claire's.
I move to follow her, only for the caravans door to fly open in my face. Claire's dad walks in. "Oh, ssyou. Evenin'." He reeks to high heaven of cheap whiskey and sex.His face is unblemished, skin smooth and unburned, barring a few scars he said he got in the war, but Claire said a whore gave him with a smashed open bottle.He leans down and hauls me to my feet. "Why youse in me house then?" He slurs, kicking his boots off and rubbing his temples. Some mud spatters on my shoes as he kicked his own off, but it's not like I'm getting any dirtier. "An' whass with the geddup?" He asks, reaching into the fridge for the beers.>Write in>
>>36428976We were dancing.Claire was worried about you, you should go and tell her that you are fine.
>>36428976>"Claire, did you actually ever try phoning him?">"I have to know."
>>36428976"sir you about to have some thing have happen to you HEY Claire come here"
>>36428976So what are your superpowers?
>>36428976"I was bringing Claire back from the school Ball."Go over to Claire's bedroom door and knock."Hey Claire! Your dad's home, doesn't look like he was in hospital."
>>36429027Living while other die during the war.
>>36429027We can probably google that.
"I was bringing Claire back from the ball... speaking of which, you might want to brace yourself. CLAIRE!" Mr Miller just looks befuddled, cracking a beer open, only for Claire to barrel through the 'door' of her room, spot her father and rush across the room.She jumps in the air a little, as she's about to reach him, and socks a punch at him, aiming for his jaw. "Why didn't you pick. UP!" She screams.Mr Miller, for his part, catches her fist in midair with his free hand, locking his wrist.Claire's forward motion ceases completely, and she locks in place in the air for a few seconds, growling impotently as her Father lowers her to the ground, gently placing her down."Was... busy. Why?" He asks between sips.Claire slams a fist on the table and shakes her head. "I kept trying to call you! I thought you were in the hospital!" She points at me. "I treated my boyfriend like shit, cos I was scared about you and you were just fucking some prozzy?""Yup." He burps and crushes the can, tossing it at the bin. "Sorry. I'm a piece of shit, yeah yeah, let me have it. I know, your mother told me all the same." He takes a deep breath and looks Claire squarely in the eyes.>Let Claire rant>Get between them
>>36429316>Let Claire rantNot quite our business
>>36429316>Let Claire rant
>>36429316>>Let Claire rantIts not like we can, or have reason to interfere.
>>36429316>>Let Claire rantbetter to let her vent
>>36429316Give Claire a look but don't stop her. Just have her loosen up a bit.
I step back, I doubt I could stop her anyways. "You piece of shit, I hate you! I thought you were dying, I thought you were gonna end up like mum!" Claire tries to punch again, but her dad grabs her fist and she locks in place for a few seconds. Mr Miller just sags inwards as the words flow over him. "Stop IT!" She howls. "LET ME HIT YOU!" She swings again and again, each time she gets caught and locked in place. "You let her die! You could have stopped them!" Mr Miller just shakes his head. "If I had, you'd be dead. That's just how your mother wanted it. You think I don't hate that too?" Claire gapes at him. "Did- did you just?" She takes a step backwards.Mr Miller shakes his head, a bolt of clarity piercing his drunken stupor. "Wait, no, Eileen- CLAIRE, that isn't what I meant." He reaches out, but his palms are starting to glow red.Claire steps back further, staring at him with disgust, I try to step in and intervene, when Claire turns, bolting through the door and into the night."Shit." Mr Miller sags inwards on himself, slapping his temples again. "I- SHIT!" He kicks out at a box, cursing as it proves to sturdy, jarring his toes.>What do
>>36429549im going to get Claire and calm her down; me and you need to talk at some point
>>36429549Get him a beer from the fridge.
>>36429549Go after Claire.Though Miller's probably right, and Claire's mom probably did choose to die in Claire's place, but that's something we should find out via some googling.
>>36429549I feel so fucking sorry for him. Reminds me of my dad.>>36429579>>36429582This.
>>36429549Seconding >>36429579Hopefully we can go outside after dark this time without almost getting killed.
>>36429549Get him a beer and then"I'll go after her. We'll be having a talk later, don't worry we'll sort it out"Or something along those lines
>>36429549>>36429579This seems good.
>>36429603Claire's pissed because he accidentally said that he'd have preferred his wife to be alive over Claire
I shake my head. "Jesus Christ." Best Ball ever Danny 10/10. "I'm going to get Claire and calm her down. You and I... are going to have to have a conversation at some point." I jab a finger in his direction.He just nods, staring downwards impotently, before shuffling to his 'bedroom'. "Jus'.... treat her right." He mumbles.I slip out the door and look around. "Goddamnit Claire, where'd you go now?" There's no sign of her other than the fence on their chainlink gate swaying in the breeze. Of course she would leave her phone behind. I slip it in my pocket and consider.>Check my place>Check school>Check the old arcade>Check the hospital
>>36429727>Check the old arcade
>>36429727>>Check the old arcadedidn't we go to the arcade with her all the time when we were younger
>>36429727>Check the old arcadeKeep an eye out for monsters.
>>36429727Old arcade it is.Lewds in the DDR machine, just like my first time.
>>36429727>>Check the old arcadeWatch out for monsters. We should tell someone where we are going.
>>36429791let me guess you were off rhythm the entire time
>>36429727>>36429801>We should tell someone where we are going.this
>>36429812The arcade was turned off.But fuck, i was getting a lot if miss on that one.
Chuckles will be ending it within 1-2 posts.Stupid time zones.
>>36429958Nooo! the cliffhangers!
I'll check the arcade. Just in case, I text Rosa, asking her to come find me near the arcade if I don't show up tomorrow.Another run through town and my suit is practically falling to pieces, mudstained and reeking of sweat in the late spring air.The arcade's been shut for years, killed by consoles, but Claire and I figured out an entrance in a few years back. She used to climb up on the roof, hauling me up after her and we'd drop in.Thanks to a growth spurt and getting fit, I can mostly get myself up top without much trouble. Much trouble being I feel the shoulder seam of my shirt tear. Fuck.I clamber in through the vents and drop into the arcade graveyard. The building still has old machines, eerie now that the place is dark and empty."Claire?" I call out. I walk around, getting no answer, eventually finding her curled up in an abandoned photo booth by my phones light. "You heard what he said." Claire says, quiet. "He hates that I'm alive. Rather than her." She just shakes her head. "And here I was worrying about him. All. Fucking. Night.">Write in
>>36429958> stupid timezonesIt's 5 pm here, do you live in a shitty time zone?
>>36430023That's not what he meant. He loves you, in his own way, and you know it. He is just drunk and has hard time expressing himself. He hates that She is dead, not that you are alive. (Woman logic much?)
>>36430023"Calire if your father hates anyone it's himself, from what he said I'm guessing he had a choice, you or your mother."Something like this?
>>36430023i don't know he was drunk maybe he meant that maybe not but i am more then happy that you alive
>>36430023Claire it isn't that he hates you. He ahtes himself. Remember he was once a big powerful strong man who could tackle anything the world threw at him. Then the woman he loved died and there was nothing he could do and no one he could really blame. It ripped him to shreds. Why do you think he's so self destructive to himself? It isn't because he hates you, it's because he hates himself for failing to save her.
>>36430023Go over to her, sit down next to her and lay her in our lap while we pet her.then >>36430074>>36430076good god no not something like that
>>36430023>Claire he's shit with words... and a cunt. I'm not sure he'll ever get his shit together but I believe he cares..Fucking hell chuckles this is a minefield.>>36430032Nah East Coast U.S. it's almost 3 here. The issue will be that chuckles has been up all night and will pass out shortly.
>>36430023>"Do you think this one's still working? We never took a picture togheter." Hug her "life's never easy, but he was drunk and he IS bitter. I would be if i ever lost you. Nothing would be really as bright as seeing you smile, even if it's the rarest of sights. I love you claire."
>>36430023>>36430074>>36430105Somewhere in here..Christ we need Shoe.. adorable pets fix things.
>>36430125I thought we stopped with the cheesy shit?
>>36430146Shut up, claire loves cheesy shit.Captcha is muscles cheesery, for fucks sake.
>>36430165>muscles cheeseryIt's a fucking sign. It must be said.Claire is the muscles! It all makes sense!
>>36430023Sit next to her."No, he just hates that she's dead, not that you're alive. And I thought I had problems expressing myself. Never getting drunk."You ask a man why he didn't save his wife, and he says that he had to in order to save his daughter, and you take it to mean that he hates his daughter.
>>36430225Claire can't understand a man's heart.Losing something you love is hard as fuck.
>>36430278Out of all of this I'm not getting, "Can't understand a mans heart!" I'm getting a... Claire.. you're fucking stupid.Granted she's strung out and worked up on an emotional high.
"I don't think that's what he meant." I tell her, scooting into the photo booth. I sit next to her and gently ease her into laying down, head on my legs as I pat her. "He loves you in his own way. And you know that. He's just drunk and has a hard time expressing himself." I lean down and kiss her in the dark, think I got her ear. "He hates that she's dead, not that you're alive."Claire just grunts in the dark. I can hear her smear her eyes again, sniffing in the dark. "God look at me, I'm literally being crazy daddy issues girl right now."I reach down and hold her hand in the dark, hot and wet from tears. "It doesn't matter to me, got it? I love you no matter what." I remember when you pulled that shit coming back from the school trip, it was like.... my heart froze. I would have done ANYthing to fix that."Claire nods into my knees. "I know. I'm sorry. It was a cunt thing to do." She stands suddenly in the dark. "Alright. We're two lovers, crying alone in an abandoned arcade, the night of the prom-" She begins, sounding playful. "Don't call it a prom." I scold her lightly"Two young lovers, after a night of heaving emotions. What should we do?" She leans in and kisses me, her lips are wet and salty.>Write in
>>36430322"Not sure. I think we should get a good night's sleep after eating some good food."
>>36430322Kiss her back and if she gets into it lewd her, if not take her home(ours) and get something good to eat and then sleep.
>>36430322>W-what are we gonna do in the both Claire!?Failing that. Go home. Get a Kitten. Get Cuddles.
>>36430322"We should head home, where its safe and private and comfortable, so we can really enjoy the night properly."
>>36430322"Well what I need to do is get home and feed a certain little kitty." Then take her hand "What you need to do is go home and talk with your dad."
>>36430322What else? Love each other. Claire is best girl.
>>36430401Have emotionally aggravating talk with a drunk person that disintegrates things when he gets emotionally aggravated.Yea... not 100% on that.
>>36430322>>36430344>>36430356>>36430353these, kiss her a bunch, then bring her home to feed the pussy, and then feed the pussy
>>36430322>"Considering this isn't a slasher film, I'm assuming you mean go somewhere nice and get dirty."
"Not sure. I think we should get a good nights sleep. After some good food." I tell her."But we had pizza." She whines. "I repeat. GOOD food. Besides, I'm sure Shoe's missing us." I remind her.I can hear her lips part in a smile in the dark, the delicate separating of her lips, her cheeks stretching. "Oh yeah." She leans in and kisses me. "Thanks for my kitty too. I never properly thanked you." I just kiss her forehead and lead her to the back door, one that only swings open from inside. Better than clambering through the vents.I check the time briefly, nearly three am now, old me would still be shitposting this time of night, but after all the running and crawling I did tonight.... I just feel exhausted.Claire swings by some all night chinese place, scoffing spring roll and handing me one. The greasy meat, dipped in the oversugared sweet chilli sauce. Heaven.Claire kisses me, licking the last few flakes of crust out of my mouth before we head home.I let us in, creeping through the house quietly, I pull her in to my room, feeding Shoe some leftovers we stole from our fridge.I throw the muddied and torn clothes aside gladly, the back of my brain working on a way to explain that to mum and dad, but for now.... all I want is Claire.She shoves me back on my bed, kissing feircely, she moves to run her hands through my hair, pressing softly, right on my crotch, when suddenly she pulls back, looking confused, "What's...."She goes pale as she reads the card she withdrew."Uh, Danny?" She flicks the card over and I read it."I know what you did." It reads simply. That on it's own would be scary, considering the variety of illicit activities I partake in. But the capper is the signature."Richard Mishone." WELP.>END OF EPISODE 27
>>36430763>Richard MishoneLiterally who?
>>36430763the fuck did we do got Rosa home a little late because if that's all im gonna flip my shit on him
>>36430763Wait, so Danny had a card in his crotch?And it probably says a lot that I can't think exactly what Rosa's father is referring to because Danny had done a LOT of shit wrong.
>>36430787Rosa's dad, the one who told us to make sure that Rosa was home by 11.The one who told us to make sure that Rosa is our number one priority.The man who somehow, without our knowing, put a card in the crotch of our pants.Fuck, he's either got prescience or teleportation powers.
>>36430837You really think that's a good idea?
>>36430837Wrong criminal scum. Danny got Rosa back at 11:01.He broke the rule!
>>36430883>>36430891im not saying attack him with violence but yelling and belittleing him is what i seek
>>36430862>>36430847i think the card was under his head guys, she was running her heands through dannys hairalso eri for best trap
>>36430763Damn I was hoping is first name was Micheal and he was M
>>36430922Nah Mom and Claire are best traps.

>>36431032just because some is all of those things doesn't mean you cant belittle some one he obviously couldn't care about his daughter happiness if he did engaging her to the douche lord is an interesting way to show it
We don't know what he really knows. He's trying to scare us. We'll probably have to deal with it, but lets be reasonable about this. It's just like the Doctor being an arsehole to see if we are.
Guys, do we have any good guess what the Parents powers are? For everyone's parents?
