Makoto backs off a few steps and waves to it.

Over here.

It follows, hesitating often. The spikes of anger continue, but they seem directionless, almost.

Permalink

Interesting.

So what's your story?

Permalink

'I was - there, and there was heat and pain and light. And they changed the house and the people - '

Permalink

"I don't know!"

Permalink

When was this?

Permalink

"A long time?" The ghost seems confused, though.

Permalink

What's the first thing you remember?

Permalink

The ghost drifts, farther from anger.

'I. Was small.' A flicker of remembered joy. 'It was sunny, almost never sunny, we were - playing - '

The ghost seems to be getting quieter, smaller almost, like morning mist.

Permalink

Playing with who?

Permalink

'I think I see them.'

It's small, and quiet, and young and lost-sounding.

Permalink

This is adding up to something sad.

"Seems like monsters that used to be people is a bit of a theme."

Permalink

"It is. There's things that were never human, but... Humans have the greatest fears of what could happen."

Permalink

"I suppose that makes sense."

Permalink

"It's unfortunate, that fear seems to be stronger - or at least more specific - than hope, here..."

Permalink

"I wonder what an Incubator would make of it."

Permalink

"I'm not sure if I've heard you mention Incubators?"

Permalink

"They're an advanced alien race who use the emotional energy generated by magical girls to stave off the heat death of the universe. Apparently they don't feel emotions themselves, and so have to rely on humans. We make a wish and get magic, and they somehow skim off the top to get free energy. They're these little fluffy bunny-cats that are almost scientifically calculated to be adorable, and I'm honestly not sure if that's their natural form or not."
