- tries summoning Mwamba -
She turns to Cam and blinks slowly several times.
"- hi. Are you okay? I can send you back, I just - wanted to see if you'd been separarated out -"
"Yea. Just got out. We were... deciding things."
"If we could trust you. If we wanted to become one again. If peace was enough to make up for what's missing."
"What'd you decide?"
"We're different enough now that we can't rejoin without sacrificing pieces we don't want to lose. We think that it would be worse to not trust you if you were really trying to help, than it would be to trust you and find out you're lying."
"About half the demons who were absorbed separated again. We talked for a really long time. I don't think the entire Other Place has ever been that focused before."
"I know being absorbed isn't exactly like dying for you but I would've missed you."
"I would've missed you too! That's part of why I wanted to come back out. We felt you trying to summon me, so I hurried up an finished separating. Sorry if you were worried."
"I wasn't at the point of panicking yet but I was worried, yeah. I didn't know you'd be able to feel it while absorbed."
"Well you don't need to worry. Everything is good. And yea, we all feel when summons are happening, even if they aren't for us."
"I'm glad you're okay."
"Me too! Glen can come back later, she's still talking to everyone right now. Did anything happen here?"
"Talked to somebody from the United States. They have defensive artifacts that sounded really good until it turned out they are made the same way all the other artifacts are."
"Oh yea, getting touched by those sucks."
"If they didn't work the same way as other artifacts I'd want to convince people they'd do for their legitimate defensive purposes but as it is I can hardly encourage that."
"There are worse things to be sealed inside, but it's still not fun."
"Yeah. I'm optimistic I can get somewhere with the Americans, though, the lady I talked to seemed sensible."
"Don't know much about them. No one's really summoned by them much."
"I think that's because they rely on the anti-magic jobbies."
"Those aren't as bad as everything else. At least they prevent people there from summoning more demons. We could probably worry about those last."
"Yeah, I'm not going to try to rush anybody on breaking those."
