Kuma's War Story 4 (Session 1 through 3)
Jakob's faces turns towards Kuma. It is twisted and stretched,
the muscles and tendons throughout the face are taut and
strange shadows from the outsides lights fall in warped
patterns. The man's eyes gleam with a strange mix of hatred,
hope, and fanatical glee.
"You're next, John," he grins. Kuma tries to
speak, but his throat is clenched and dry. He tries to raise
his gun, but his arm is heavy and numb. Through a window
of the control room, Kuma notices frantic activity accompanied
by magical lights and the sounds of heavy machinery.
Jakob knows he is stunned and impotent. He has won. The
man stands up straight and stretches his arms outward. He
tilts his head back, closing his eyes and awaiting some
dark miracle. Strange ripples are seen under the skin of
his arms and face. Bulges race and skitter around with animal-like
intelligence. Suddenly a convulsion rocks his body. Jakob
tilts his face forward, his eyes open, and a large smile
on his face.
The man's chest explodes outwards, tattered clothes bursting
to land in bloody rags about the room. Jakob is still smiling
as the alien beast climbs its way out of his own ribcage.
It is black and purple, with blood gore sliding off its
hard chitinous back like foul amniotic fluid. Jakob looks
down at the creature like a father admiring his first-born
child. It looks up to match his gaze. Something passes between
them. The alien opens its large jaw revealing razor sharp
yellow teeth. It then crushes Jakob's head, devouring it
Kuma is gripped by pure fear. He cannot fight such a thing;
he's a street samurai, not some trid super mage. The beast
finishes his first meal and turns to look at Kuma.
It slows walks over to him in a hunched and off-kilter
gait. It opens its mouth wide and licks its teeth with a
big engorged purple tongue.
A hollow, guttural voice echoes in Kuma's head, "You're
Kuma snaps awake. The voice still clings to his conscious
memory, repeating over and over again, slowly fading in
presence. His body is covered in a cold sweat, a sweat that
has soaked the large bandage wrapping his chest. He lets
himself fall back into the familiar hospital bed. The electronic
bedside monitor's reassuring beeping seems to sweep away
any remains of the nightmare. Within a couple minutes Kuma
can barely remember what it was about. A feeling of impending
horror still seems to linger, but Kuma pushes it to the
back of his mind and takes charge of his surroundings.
He was in back recovery room of his chummer's street clinic.
Truman had been asked a lot of the last several weeks, but
had still been there afterwards to pull out the bullets
from Kuma's torn body and tell dirty jokes he had learned
in the army. After all the drek Kuma had gone through, a
standard hospital was completely out of the question. Legit
doctors don't appreciate finding some undocumented Grade
IV Fuchi Titanium Body Lacing while they are pulling out
half a dozen slugs.
"Hey, there's the bad man," came a shout from
the doorway. Kuma was starting to let the painkillers slip
him into another nightmare, but is shaken awake.
Kuma was glad to see his two best friends walk into the
clinic room. Manny led the way. The hyper-kinetic ork was
wearing a loose black polo-style shirt and jeans and a black
Eurocar baseball cap. His tall gangly frame was a sharp
contrast to the shorter, stockier Irishman. Red had his
constant synthleather jacket and a white Ares t-shirt underneath.
Red's full fire red beard and bald head seemed even more
vivid in the sterile white room.
Kuma sat up to greet them, wincing slightly. "Damn
it's good to see you slots. Fragging white walls and Truman's
slop is a hell of a way to spend a couple weeks." Red
tosses a Styrofoam container. Kuma catches it reflexively.
He already knows what's in it before it is even opened:
Tojo's Chili Yakisoba.
Manny and Red pull up some chairs. "What the frag's
going on these days, Yaj," asks Manny.
"Yeah, I finally got Truman and talked him into giving
up the clinic. Man was a little paranoid and I'm guessing
it was all you. Last we knew, you were hiding out from some
hit teams or some drek. Fragging shadowrunning, chummer.
You got to ditch that and learn that life is a good thing
and stepping in front of bullets ain't smart," says
"Yeah, what's the screamsheet, Yaj?" echoes
Kuma shakes his head as he devours the last of the soba.
"Fragged up run. I think everything's blown over for
now. Even if not, I need to tell you about the weird drek
that came our way. I fragging hate magic these days."
Kuma tosses the container at the trash can, ricocheting
off the lid.
"Here's what went down. I'm giving you the condensed
version because I'm not really in the mood and these pain
killers aren't helping the, uh, whatchacallit, yeah the
long term memory.
"The security chief of this company hired my team
to rescue his boss's corporate daughter who had run away.
She was rich, spoiled, and had fallin' into the wrong crowd.
We know that type. Frag, those are usually the best lays
around. Remember Lolita, eh Red?
"Anyways, the girl was still using her cred stick
and could be tracked with that. We were supposed to recover
her unharmed, and if not, then tell this Jakob guy exactly
where she is. Sounded simple enough to me.
"We must have dragged ourselves all over the fragging
metro. One minute she's hooked up with some fixer who is
fronting a drug gang, next minute she's out in the NAN hiring
eco-terrorists. It was fragging annoying and difficult tracking
this bitch because there was no connection to anything.
We were pretty fragging pissed off and ready to make something
"Finally we track to a fancy hotel in downtown, forget
the name. I get this decker I know to handle security and
find out where she is and dammit it is her. I wanted to
have some more time to do an extraction right, but the place
was tight and we didn't know how long she was going to be
"In the end we followed her, this rogue fixer, and
some bodyguards to the warehouse district. We come in like
a hammer, kickin' doors in, blowing the bad guys away. First
time I had a chance to use the Little Oni and it was fraggin'
sweet. Heavy protection, and we had them on the ropes, but
they managed to drag her into a rigged car and make a get
away. We wanted out of this, so we contact Jakob and he
rounds her up with gunships and swat teams. Heavy drek.
Mission done. Time for a fragging soybeer and a joygirl,
but no way chummer. Jakob had other plans.
"Turns out he was the bad guy. He had turned rogue
and was kidnapping his boss's daughter. Now we are in a
drek storm. To make matters worse, the man wasn't happy
enough to follow the code. Instead he has hit teams after
all of us. Tying up loose ends and such. That's not how
you do business.
"We end up dodging hit teams and booby traps confused
as to what the hell we did to piss this man off. Still don't
really have a good answer beyond, we got hired for the job.
Even after all the weird drek I've seen, he still could
have just let us walk away.
"We were stuck between this rogue ex-special ops
security guy and his goons and the boss he screwed over.
Oh yeah, who is some kind of lower mafia boss. Then he fragging
blew up my car. That's right, the tricked out sleak Ferrari.
You don't frag with another man's car. That's just asking
for trouble. So it was personal now.
"We turned to the mafia guy, Don Carter. Told him
everything and said we wanted to set things straight. He
didn't have much to tell us or give us, but at least the
mob wasn't knocking on my door. I can see it now: Mob War
II, everyone versus Kuma.
"I guess we wrapped things up by tracking some of
Jakob's movements and eventually capturing his gunships
in an abandoned factory in Puyallup. No Manny, I know what
you are thinking, but we had to give them back to Carter.
"Anyways, I'm getting dizzy from these fraggin drugs
so I'll skip to the end. We track Jakob to this old oil
rig that Renraku gave up a long time ago. We're thinking
he used it as some kind of base of operations. We got a
rigger to get us out there and onto the rig. He had some
thugs protecting things, but that's nothing compared to
what starting materializing.
"There were some kind of alien spirits showing up.
They looked like a fragging science fiction trid alien.
Four arms, purple and black with big claws and vicious speed.
Nastiest fragging thing I've ever seen and I hope I don't
see it again. God damn fragged up magic. The only good mage
is a dead mage. Well, maybe not all of them. A couple have
saved my hoop before.
"We pushed our way through the rig up to the control
tower. Every now and then one of these fraggers would show
up and go after someone. I just made sure I knew where they
were and pointed my SMG at something I knew I could take,
like some dumb unlucky thug. We got into the control room
and this Jakob guy is there, waiting for us, like he knew
we were going to be there and that we were going to crash
the party. Right there beside him is our target, the girl.
She's tied up to some rack of some kind, like a ritual sacrifice.
This big modified oil drill machine started up on the main
platform and the girl smashes through the wall on the rack
floating across the way towards it. More fragging magic.
He's got this barrier up so we can't get through the main
door, but that wasn't going to stop me for paying this slot
back for my car and the last miserable weeks of my life.
"I climbed through a window onto the roof and swung
into the main room. He just stood there, not fighting, not
charging, not drawing a gun. It was kind of a let down.
After all of this and he just let me take aim and put a
big ripping burst through his chest. Then one of these creatures
came out of him. It came out of his fragging chest, like
it was living in his stomach or something. Frag that. I
got the hell out of there, leaping down onto the main deck.
A couple of my adept chummers are right there to face it
down. I fragging hate anything that just shrugs off a solid
strike to the throat. Just ain't right.
"We took it down and some of our mages saved the
girl. Didn't really pay attention to that since I got these
love marks from the beast. I blacked out and next thing
I know our medic has me up and moving and all I am hearing
are shouts to get to the sub. Everything's falling apart
and exploding and basically going straight to hell. We jumped
into the sub and got the frag out of that place.
"Here I am recovering in Truman's clinic. I haven't
heard much from the others, but we got the girl back to
her father and took down that fragger Jakob. Hopefully,
all of the hit teams have been told that the game is off.
I'm just waiting to get out onto the street and start doing
some normal jobs. Something without any fragging magic."
Red and Manny just watch Kuma for a couple seconds, not
sure what to say. Finally Manny speaks up, "Damn you
need a drink." Everyone lets out a friendly chuckle.
"Yeah chummer, that shadowrunning gig is sounding weirder
every time you talk about it."
"Yeah, yeah. Well while you guys were learning real
life skills, I was just making all the money causing trouble,"
The door to the room opens and Truman pokes his head in.
"You two need to get out of here. I thought you were
going to stay for a minute and keep him from getting worked
up. Now I need to rebandage that side," Truman points
the a slowly blossoming red stain spreading across Kuma
bandage. "Play time's over, get out."
Piker's War Stories (Sessions 1 through 4)
A man with a pleasant smile but faded and worn eyes stands
up and says, "Everyone, please welcome our newcomer, Piker"
everyone looks at Piker with a supportive smile and simultaneously
say, "hello Piker." The man looks at Piker and continues,
"Piker, stand up and introduce yourself, then tell us why
you love to drink," Piker chuckles and says, "I don't love
to drink, wid my line of work, I NEED to drink," the man
smiles, "alright then, could you stand up and tell us why
you need to drink." Piker looks contemplative and responds,
" do I have to stand up, it's sorta long story," the man
smiles and nods, " do whatever is comfortable for you."
Piker begins, "Well, I have a very stressful job." the
man nods his head in understanding and says, "Yes, yes,
an unrealistically demanding boss, crushing deadlines, prejudice
in the workplace, I unders..", Piker interrupts "No, I mean
riding my bike naked after getting shot up from an ambush
by a hit team, set up by a backstabing frag face, while
taking a shower in de gym." Everyone's face grows pale,
and the man tries his best not to show his shock, but fails.
He hesitantly says, "Oh, I see, my bad. Uh Piker, may I
speak to you alone," Piker nods and they both leave the
dead silent room.
The man, who is obviously trying to choose his words carefully,
nervously looks at Piker "Piker, we are a Support group,
and uh, you need someone with more...skills and...expertise.
I know someone that has dealt with your kind of...situation."
He scribbles the name and phone number of Dr. Van Otterloo,
gives it to Piker, pats her on the shoulder and wishes her
luck. Piker has the urge to smack him, but realizes his
position and decides to try out this Dr. Van Otterloo. Piker
says to herself, "Is dat a weird name or what?"
[1st session war story]
The Doctor escorts Piker to his office, where she is surprised
to see two couches, a small people couch, and a troll size
couch. He gestures her to the couch, she reluctantly lays
down. He sits next to her and begins," alright Piker,
you've mentioned on the phone that you have a drinking problem.
So tell me, why do you drink so much."
Piker sighs heavily "Stress."
He responds by asking "From what?"
"Mainly, my job."
"What do you do?" he asks.
"I am a shadowrunner," she answers.
He shows no change in disposition and continues, "Give
me an example of your line of work, and we can go from there."
He awaits a response.
Piker stares off in the distance for a moment, then starts.
"I suppose I'll tell you 'bout my latest run, it was
very stressful and weird." She pauses and contemplates
where to begin.
"I'll start from the beginning. Me and my team were
hired by a guy called Jakob. He said his boss' teenage daughter,
let's call her Sara, ran away from home, and her fadder,
let's call him Tony, wanted her back. All we had to do is
find her and bring her back, or tell Jakob were she's at
and he'll bring her back."
"So we ask around and found out she's hanging around
this Amerindian fella, had a crush on him or something.
So we follow the trail to a drug lab/house protected by
some gang, but that got us nowhere, except for Caliban,
that's a new guy on my team, who got the drek kicked out
of him by the gang when he gave dem lip. I 've worked wid
the mob enough to know dat you don't give no one any lip
on their turf. Anyway, we looked some more and found out
her fella is involved with some ecoterrorists, trying to
set someting up or some drek like dat. So we tink dat dis
girl fell in love wid dis guy whose taking advantage of
her for her money, and maybe someting else. We tracked dem
down to a snazzed-up hotel and waited till dey left. We
didn't want to hit dem at de hotel and have security and
Lone Star on our ass. When dey left, we followed."
"Dey stopped at a warehouse and dat's when we moved
in. I didn't see much of de fight; my team downed a couple
of their people, but dey still managed to get away wid de
girl. So we called up Jakob and he brought some vans and
gun 'coptas, some pretty heavy drek, to where the van wid
de girl was. He asked for the girl, but when they let the
girl out, Jakob's people started taking pot shots at de
van. Dat wasn't right, I shoulda known someting was up.
But dis mission was weird from the beginning, so I was just
glad it was over." She pauses for a moment
"Anyway, everyting seemed null sheen, I went back
to my life. Some street fighting, bodygaurding, and drek
like dat. Den everything got fragged up. So, after working
out one day in the gym, I headed to de showe
the doctor interrupts," excuse me Piker, time is up"
Piker looks surprised, "dat didn't seem dat long. Alright,
I'll see you next time." On her way out, she looks
back at the doctor and says, "you know doc, you remind
me of someone, I just can't put my finger on it. Oh well,
[2nd session war story]
"Alright Piker, last time you left off after completing
your 'job', then you said 'everything got fragged up', what
did you mean by that." Piker tries to recollect where
she had left off, then starts speaking, "ok, right,
I was talking about what happened after the job," she
pauses and chuckles a bit, "right, the shower incident."
Dr. Van Otterloo raises an eyebrow, turns the page on his
pad, and awaits what will surely be an interesting story.
Piker begins, "Like I said, I didn't really like de
last run we were on. It felt weird all trough it, especially
how it ended, but I was done wid it and wanted to put it
behind me. So I did some street fighting to relax and den
went in de gym to take a shower. In de shower, I heard a
"click", kinda like de one you hear from a gun
before you get shot in de face. So after I heard dat, I
sneaked around to where the sound came from. I turned a
corner and saw a guy wid a SMG ready to pop me. But I got
him first, POW!, in de face. Den he shot me, den I dropped
him. When I was done wid him, his udder friend showed up
and shot me, den I dropped him too. I heard some more of
dere friends comin' down de stairs, so I grabbed de guys
I dropped and went out de back, 'cuz dat's where my bike
was. Did I mention dat I was all shot up and naked when
I went out back? Well when I got dere, dere was anudder
guy out back. I trew one of de guys I had wid me at him,
den took care of him." Piker gets a big smile on her
face and looked at the doctor, but he was not fazed, so
she stopped smiling.
She continued," I got on my bike and put one of de
knocked out guys in front of me. Guess who spotted me when
I drove down de street? Lonestar! 'course I don blame dem
for noticing a shot up naked troll riding on a bike wid
a slumped body in front of her. So dey chased me down. I
drove to Gargoyle's Roost, hopin' dat my dad would be dere.
I got to de Roost, ran in, and screamed for my dad to hide
me. So he pushed a button or someting and the wall behind
de bar opened and he let me trough. Dere were stairs behind
de wall, so I went down, and it look like I was in de sewer
or someting. But I didn't look around, I was hurt pretty
bad, and still naked. When tings cooled down wid de cops,
dad came down and took care of me. He's a good dad."
The doctor responds to her last statement, "So, you
have a good relationship with your father?" Piker answers,"Yeah,
I trust him wid my life." The doctor responds, "That's
a lot of trust, especially with your profession." Piker
answeres soberly, "He's always come through for me.
He taught me how to take care of myself, helped me when
I needed help, and hooked me up wid a terrific magic group.
You know, he's de only one who'd ever tried to convince
me to stop drinking," she gets slightly misty eyed,
but immediately shakes it off.
"Anyway, back to de story. When I woke up I was all
healed, and dressed, and my dad said dat de man I brought
wid me got 'questioned'. So it turned out dat dey were a
hit team hired by Jakob to kill me. Remember Jakob, de guy
that hired us to get de girl. Anyway I met up wid Hound
and Kuma, they're part of my team, to talk 'bout what happened.
So Kuma tells me that he heard a noise in his apartment,
but left like a scaredy cat. I mean he's dis big bad ass
chromed sami, I mean I woulda atleast tried to find out
what's going on before running to Hound. I got ambushed
in the shower, dat's de worst place you can be to get jumped
on by a professional team; I survived AND brought one of
de attackers wid me to get questioned.
"Anyway, we figure out dat Jakob probably got hit
teams after each one o' us. So we go to Kuma's place, he
goes in and sets off a claymore in his closet. He expected
it, so we setup ourselves in his apartment and waited till
a hit team came from downstairs expecting Kuma to be all
bown to pieces. Well , dey got a big surprise. Kuma blew
dem away, so I guess he made up for running away from his
place earlier. I mean, usually he's really good at what
he does, but sometimes he acts kinda weird."
"Next, we go to my place, and figure out dat someone
's been asking about me, and were staying on the floor above
my aprtment. To make de long story short, we ambush de team
dat's supposed to ambush me. Dat was great! Anyway, I question
dem and figure out dat like de other team, dey're suppose
to kill me. So we tell dem to get out of town. Now we know
dat we are being 'unted by Jakob, but we had no idea why,
we did de job and den we went our separate ways."
"We ask around and find out from Val, she's part of
de team but was not on our last run, dat she and some uder
people, including de Amerindian fella, were hired by de
girl's fadder to protect her. Jakob used to work for Don
Carter, but left and decided to use us to help him kidnap
Don's daughter. So Jakob lied to us and is now trying to
kill us. Talk about stressfull."
"We got a break when Ajax, anudder guy on my team
dat was'nt on dat last run, called us up. He said dat a
Diviner he was doing told him dat Jakob was real superstitious
and dat a Diviner once told him dat in de future, my team
was gonna bring him down. So we figure dat's why he sent
out de hit teams after us. But you know, we weren't gonna
do anyting to him until he tried to get us whacked. Sorta
The doctor interrupts, "All right Piker, I 've given
you a lot of time today to finish your thoughts, but I have
other patients waiting outside. So, I will see you next
time," Piker nods and leaves his office.
[3rd session war story]
Piker walks into Dr. Otterloo's office, lays on the couch,
and starts talking, "Last time we talked I told you
dat Ajax told us dat Jakob used Diviners before doing anyting
big. So we asked Ajax if he could help us some more; he
agrees, which was pretty nice of him 'cuz he was putting
him self in danger by associating wid us. We needed to learn
more about Jakob, so we decided to contact Tony, de girl's
fadder, and offer our help to get his daughter for some
info on Jakob. We asked Ajax to come wid us to de meet,
'cuz he's a lot better at talking dan any of us."
Tthe doctor interrupts, "So what makes Ajax better
at taking than any on your team mates?"
With a lower voice, Piker answers,"Well, he's really
handsome, has a sweet tongue, pretty good smile
The doctor asks, " I see, you like this Ajax."
She nonchalanty answers, "He's all right. Anyway,
we met wid Tony, told him what happened, offered our help
to get his daughter back, den asked him what he knew of
Jakob. Tony didn't know much 'cuz Jakob was his security
guy, and when he left, he took Tony's gun 'coptas and left
him to dry. But at least Ton' offered his help ad hooked
us up wid Val and the Amerindian guy, who were trying to
"From talking to our contacts and a little bit of
leg work, we traced a warehouse in Puyallup were Jakob's
men were at. We ambushed his people and found the gun 'coptas.
Tony's people picked up the 'coptas and took care of Jakob's
men, who had no idea where Jakob was."
"At dis point the only link to Jakob was the Diviner.
Ajax looked into dat some more and found out dat Jakob uses
six Diviners. So we went to de Diviners, but dey couln't
tell us what dey'd known about Jakob, but we hired dem to
Divine where he is. De Diviner told us he's on water, but
not in a boat, or something like dat. So we remembered dat
the gun 'coptas had a location of an oil rig in der logs,
so we figure dat's where Jakob is hiding. Oh, we also found
out dat Sara is magical and dat Jakob was gonna use her
for some ritual, so we had to get to her quick. But between
you and me, Killing Jakob was first on de list, and saving
Sara was second."
"Val hooked us up wid a rigga dat had a sub, dis way
we have a chance of sneaking on de rig. Man, dat fraggin
sub was so cramped, I was hunched over da whole time. We
get to de rig and start climbing in, when Jakob's goones
start shooting at us. I get into cover and start taking
out my LMG when a freaky lookin' spirit, like de one dat
attacked Ajax when he did his scouting, poped out in front
of me. Before I could do anyting, one of our guys took it
out wid a spell. So we move in, the goones shoot at us and
we shoot back, and every once in a while one of dem spirits
pops out and attacks. Dem spirits were nasty, dey had four
arms with sharp claws, I know der sharp 'cuz dey cut through
armor like butter, a mouth full of sharp teeth, and dey
sucked the essence from people it got a hold of. Pretty
nasty, I never seen anyting like dat before. But you know
we used pretty good strategie against dem; Hound would distract
de spirit wid his gun then I come in and tear dem to pieces
wid my fist. Dat worked pretty well.
"While we're fighting, we notice the rig starting
up, and Ajax tells us dere is a lot of magical energy around
the drill. So we know somting is gonna happen soon. We rush
up to the tower looking ting, we see de girl strapped to
a big round door wid something dat we can't see, turned
out to be magical handcuffs or something, and Jakob standing
next to her smiling. We try to get to dem, but dere was
a magical barrier. Den, de whole area where Jakob and de
girl are starts ripping from de building and moves to de
drill. All de mages go astral after de girl, me and Hound
try to go through de barrier, and Kuma tries to find a way
to go around de barrier. Me and Hound go downstairs, den
Kuma jumps down to where we are, but one of dem spirits
was after him. Kuma later tells us dat he shot Jakob and
de spirit came out of him. So again, Hound distracts it
and I smoke it. De mages free de girl and we all head out.
As we try to leave, a bunch more spirits, dat look different
from de ones we'd seen, start coming out of everywhere.
We jump in de water and get into de sub. One of dem spirits
comes after us, but dies when it hit de water, like it caused
him pain or someting. We call up Carter's gun ship to blow
the rig up, den we left in de sub." Piker looks at
the clock and notices that her time was almost up, so she
stood up and headed to the door.
Our heroes leap into the ocean to
the rigged sub waiting below
The hordes swarm up from the pylons!
In this session Dr. Otterloo begins, " In the last
three sessions you have detailed a very intense chapter
of your life. You're proffesion is highly stressful and
incredibly deadly. I can see how you could have rationalized
the excessive use of alcohol. So why have you suddenly decided
to stop drinking? Please realize that I am not indorsing
alcoholisn, I just want to understand the circumstances
behind this major turning point of your life."
Piker sighs, " I have more responsibilities now,"
"what do you mean?" the doctor asks. Piker seems
hesitant, but then speaks, " I suppose I can tell you;
I already asked around about you, and people say dat you
keep tings to yourself, no matte what. But I guess I don't
need to give you all de details." She clearly seems
to be weighing her options and comes to some conclusion,
"alright, we.re talking about my responsibilities."
"before de last run, and all de drek dat came wid
it, I only had to take care of myself. But now, it's different."
"What do you mean," Dr. O asks. Piker responds,
"when we left de rig, we all knew dat it was swarming
wid dese really bad ass spirits. Now dey couldn't go in
de water, but if somehow dey got on land, dat would be really
"Everyone in my team started asking around about dese
spirits, but no one heard or seen anyting like dat. Den
Ajax tells us dat a lady he never met before comes up to
him and tells his what's going on. She says dat Sara's grandfadder
helped Jakob kidnap Sara to use her to summon dese creatures.
She also said dat she worked for people who's job is to
get rid of magical baddies."
"Now I don't know why Ajax believed dis woman. But
after he told us all dis, he noticed dat de woman was watchng
us astrally. He starts talking to her and she tells him
that we all need to meet her at Sara's Godfather's place,
now. So we all feel really paranoid, 'cuz no one's been
straight wid us for a long time. I actually start tinking
dat we're done for, dat we're gonna get wacked by de Godfadder
as soon as we get to his place."
"We get dere, and after a lot if talking we fing out
dat de Godfadder id a good guy, dat he's de head of de organization
dat wacks magical baddies, and dat he wants us to join.
We all agree. Now, de forst ting wee neede to do was find
de magical person dat dese nasty spirits had contact wid,
'cuz Jakob wadn't magical. So I figure dat it had to be
one of de Diviners dat he saw, 'cuz dey're de only people
he listened to. So Sara's Godfadder, let's call him Yuda,
gave us some magic coins. If someone dat eas taken over
by dese spiritstouch dese coins, it causes dem pain."
"So we went around to Jakob's Diviners and had dem
'devine' de coins, so dey would have to touch dem. Den,
one of de Diviners started screaming after it touched a
coin. I know I had to take her down. So I punched her as
hard as I can, which is pretty hard, but it didn't phase
her. Den she hit me back. She didn't hurt me, physically.
But when her fist/claw touched me, it stole some of my magic.
Not just any of my magic, but de only magic I had to hurt
her. I felt like I was completely fragged. My magic made
me what I am, and dat bitch spirit took part of it away."
She pauses, and looks depressed and somewhat vulnerable,
then regains her composure," so all I could tink off
is to hold her still while Hound takes a swing at her. He
kills her in one shot, but I don't get my magic back."
"It's been three days since I lost my magic, I don't
know what I'm gonna do. Oh well, time's up, I gotta go,
see you later." She gets up and leaves abruptly, Dr.
O looks at the clock and notices that she still had 15 minutes.
