" - Yeah, I don't... Really know how to fix that."

"Neither do I. Hopefully one of my contacts does, but if not...well, worst comes to worst I'm sure she can be taken somewhere where she can be allowed to be a seven-year-old in a grown woman's body." 

Permalink

"Not an - institute or asylum or anything though. Those - get bad."

Permalink

"No, of course not. I mean a place that will let her be seven despite being in an adult body. And then eight, etcetera. Eventually she'll catch up."

He nods. "Yeah. If she wants friends her age might be a bit hard to find somewhere, but..." He thinks. "Probably a Deep One or surface shoggoth community might actually work, they'll be more used to weird things, and shoggoth kids could look like adult humans if they wanted?"

"She's supposed to be half-Deep One, maybe all we need to do is explain to her mother what happened." 

Permalink

"Hopefully that'd be enough, yeah."

Permalink

"I can only imagine what this has looked like from her perspective so far." 

Permalink

"...She's probably worried, at least."

Permalink

"It might depend on how good an actor Ephraim is and what precautions he took to ensure his wife never interacted with 'his insane self,' people do sometimes change after life-altering events like losing a parent..."

Permalink

"Yeah..."

Permalink

"And if Asenath's mother was in on it we'll raise her ourselves if need be." 

Permalink

He nods, firmly.

"Poor kid. I am not going to hurt Ephraim any worse than we have to to save Derby and Asenath but damn if I don't think about it." 

Permalink

"Yeah. It's just - a horrible thing to do to people."

Permalink

"Evil people I can understand. People who'd do something like that to their own child--"

Permalink

"I can't really imagine doing it to anyone, and - if I was going to, 'whether they're evil' wouldn't really change that? It'd probably be how angry I was at someone."

Permalink

"I'm not saying I understand doing it to evil people, I'm saying that people who hurt strangers for personal gain, normal evil people, I don't agree with them but I can see how they happen. People who hurt their own children are a special kind of evil and I don't know how they can do it and I don't think I want to." 

Permalink

He nods.

Permalink

"If Asenath's mother was in on this I am not going to hurt her but I am probably going to scream at her."

Permalink

"Yeah. I wouldn't try to stop you..."

Permalink

"I didn't think you would I'm just having a lot of feelings." 

Permalink

Comforting hugs.

He hangs back, awkwardly.

"--Sorry, I found out that my childhood illness was actually poison not that long before I died and I haven't--entirely dealt with it, I guess."
