"How do you know that? How much blood?"
It took twelve human sacrifices to give me enough power to once again call my creatures to me, and to grant the dark oak her power.
"...that's a lot of people." She is so tempted. They could be strangers or convicted criminals... she could do it.
She looks down at her hands and thinks. Matt, Erica, Boyd, Allison, Sean, Brett and that Gabe dude. Are their lives worth more than the lives of twelve human strangers? Could she do that?
"Do you know who would?"
No one in this simulation will know for certain, but one of those who isn't interested in you, Mason, may know most.
"And you'll let me talk to him about it?"
You can speak to whomever you wish to speak to.
Hmmm. "Let me speak to Matt first."
Matt is available at her lunch table, where it's just him, and her.
Mason appears to be sitting at a table with some of his friends.
Uh. "...That was quick. Um." She looks at Matt seriously. "Hey. So. This is going to maybe sound insane. Though insane in Beacon Hills is.. really relative. But. Uh."
She struggles to find the words.
"What's up? Is everything okay?"
"It's not okay. No. But there's a chance for me to...fix it." She stops and then continues. "If someone you cared about died and you had the chance to bring them, and a bunch of other people, back to life... would you? I mean. I'd have to maybe, possibly- probably- kill twelve other people, strangers, to do it." She looks at him. "If it were you that were dead. Would you want me to do that?"
"...twelve people, for me."
Your relationship with Matt has increased!
"Okay." She takes in a deep breath and looks over at Mason, still speaking to Matt. "So. Apparently Mason might have the information I need. But also. Would he give it to me?"
Mason will tell you what you need if you do not mention the sacrifices. When the bodies were revived, there were no sacrifices. They happened prior, to strengthen me. He may not know.
"I'm not sure I know him well enough to tell. When do I die- did I die? No, that's not important. Um, try phrasing it as a question about how Nemetons work?"
"...yeah. I can make that work." She turns back to Matt. "Do you know where we could get twelve humans? Preferably ones that we don't...know- or are just bad people?"
"I can come up with a list."
"Thank you." She stands up. "Well. I'm off to potentially kill twelve people because the boy I like is dead and I wanna bring him back to life." Beat. "Wish me luck?"
"Good luck, Juliet."
Your relationship with Matt has increased to 10! You win!
As you realize you have found your one true love, you reflect on your experiences at Beacon Hills High School. Life fulfilled.
