“I guess so. I think I’d rather do something real, you know?”

“Reality is overrated.”

"I dunno. I like dreams, and they're not real... maybe I'm just spoiled for choice."

He hops to his feet and tries another machine. This one, a top-down shooter, holds his attention a little better.

Danny sneaks up and pecks him off the neck.

Eee! Ari proceeds to completely ignore the video game in favor of turning around and kissing Danny on the nose.

Permalink

"Interesting choice."

Permalink

"Did you have a better idea? I'm open to suggestions."

Permalink

"I have lips you know."

Permalink

"So you do!"

Ari proceeds to kiss them. They're good lips!

Permalink

"You're weird into kissing for a kid, you know?"

Permalink

"It's fun! I don't know if it's a Vashoth thing or if I'm just a weird kid, but it just... feels better than other things I could be doing. It's like murder."

"I think Tabby's going to drag you into a corner in like, ten years."

Permalink

"I should certainly hope so."

Permalink

"You're lucky. No non-cousin-sisters in my coven..."

Permalink

"That's a bit sad. Maybe we can find you a girl and turn her! Then we'd have more genetic diversity, and Tabby'd have someone to be a girl with. If that's something she's missing, I don't really know how girls work."

"...That's an idea."

Permalink

"I have those sometimes! Want me to look through some dreams and see if I can find any interesting girls?"

Permalink

"...Nah, I bet the mummies wouldn't mind. They didn't mind you, and girls are important."

Permalink

Ari nods. "We can ask first if you want to be super sure. We're gonna have to go back to the house anyway probably, I'd rather not sleep in the arcade."

Permalink

"...Hmm. Let's not. Don't want to spoil the surprise."

(And it's harder to say no when she's right there...)

Permalink

"Sure. Should we even go back to the house then, or just sleep in the woods?"

Permalink

"I say the woods. Maybe Lilith will smile on us."

Permalink

So Ari leaves the arcade, runs into the woods, and curls up under a bush. He's blessed with the ability to fall asleep quickly, and he does.

This town's dreams are mostly as dull as the town itself. Even the children don't seem to be flying through the stars or turning into giant bugs or exploring the ocean; this one's mining cubes of some kind, this one is taking a spelling test in just her underwear, this one-

-is dancing ballet and playing a violin. Her shoes aren't proper ballet shoes, though, they're sharpened to a wicked point at the tip. And the bow to her violin is a butcher's knife, though it doesn't change the beautiful music she's playing. And she's not dancing on a stage, or in a studio; she's leaping and twirling atop an endless sea of blood and flame.
