 "No," says Karen. "This is my sister. She's terrible, and also dead."

Permalink

"Hi!"

Permalink

He bows. "I'm honored to meet you."

Permalink

"Aww, he's cute."

Permalink

"Stop it! Stop! Both of you - just - stop making this weirder than however weird it has to be."

Permalink

He straightens up and stands still and does not talk.

Permalink

" - oh come on. Sorry. Whatever. Just - do whatever you want, okay, I don't know how this works, I'm not gonna get in trouble with your parents, just - the ghost is stupid and harmless and you don't have to care about her."

Permalink

"think she's nice."

Permalink

"Thank you. Well, if you had to save somebody who does weird fantasy life debt stuff, Karen, I think you could have done much worse."

Permalink

Ugh.

" - just - take the trash out, if that helps you somehow, or don't, if it doesn't. I'll set you up in the living room until we figure this out. I guess."

The living room is currently her room but in principle there's no reason she can't share with the toddler. Probably. Still has Azalea's bed in it.

He takes the trash out. He observes the furniture with interest. "You have a dog? - a beaver?"

Permalink

"A toddler. Since you already know all the other nonsense, we think she's a werewolf. Or something."

Permalink

"Huh. Have you tried a scratching post?"

Permalink

"......no. Maybe that'd be smart."

Permalink

"They're pretty easy to make, you just need wood and the right kind of carpet. I could pick those up at the store - d'you want me to go to school?"

Permalink

"I - guess? If you don't go to school the truant officers're gonna come for you at some point, and it looks like we're fresh out of qualified parents for them to hand you over to, so."

Permalink

Sigh. "Okay."

Permalink

"What do you even do all day?"

Permalink

"When I don't go to school? Run around in the woods, mostly. But I wasn't expecting you to allow that."

Permalink

"I mean, it's not - I don't wanna tell you what you can and can't do, it's just, if you get caught - I mean I guess they'll probably just hand you back over to your parents, and maybe that'd be fine?"

Permalink

"Yeah, I could just come back over here once they've gone."

Permalink

"Okay. Then - whatever, I guess."

Permalink

" - see, "you have to go to school" is actually better than "whatever" because it means school counts towards the debt."

Permalink

"I don't know how the debt thing works. I just want you to be, like, okay, and not cause additional problems, and figure out how to get your parents to take you back, except actually it seems like your parents kind of suck, and I guess conceivably you'd be better off without them, if you could manage that."

"My parents are great!"
