"It really would! Good luck."

Thank you.

Well, last he heard Econ Faery was taking a nap and who knows how long a nap, so he goes back to his own room, continuing to issue his form apology to anybody he passes who hasn't seen it yet.

People are confused but appreciative.

He plops in his chair.

Auda probably cannot read this entire apology yet. He peels the tape off his mouth so he can ask, "Are you okay?"

Permalink

" - hmm? Did something happen?"

Permalink

"I made a mistake, the kind that gives people headaches, but wasn't sure if it propagated to you."

Permalink

"I don't think so. Did they hurt you?"

Permalink

"No. I didn't even get the headache. I wish I hadn't screwed up, though, I don't want to hurt anybody."

Permalink

"Are they angry?"

Permalink

"I don't think so."

Permalink

Nod. "I'm sorry. It gets easier with practice."

Permalink

"That's good."

Permalink

Hug.

"What did you say?"

Permalink

"I don't remember exactly. I was trying to make it clear I wasn't asserting it, but I did that with a gesture that the system doesn't seem to recognize as sufficient."

She nods. 

 

"Poor faeries."

Permalink

"Yeah."

Permalink

"First time I lied to them I yelled at someone that he hadn't fed me in a week. It'd been five days."

Permalink

"...well, he kind of deserved that if you ask me but I assume it was pretty bad all around for you."

Permalink

"They were really angry. I hadn't been - I wasn't trying to hurt him, I had forgotten it'd do that."

Permalink

Nod.

Sigh. "I took off the tape I had on my mouth because you probably don't read very fluently yet, but I want to try to train myself to be more careful by not having trivial access to talking out loud, since I can write notes and read them over to make sure they're okay instead. Is there anything you want to talk about before I put it back?"

"I don't think so. I'm all right. You're better than they deserve, you know."
