Dodging cops becomes significantly harder if they have magic support.
Good thing for us that the only mage on their side had his heart in the right place. Chris was more of the elderly father type and knew that SSP’s story about the fugitive witch prostitute and her SINless adept pimp was bullshit.
Again, good for us. He easily found us, even though Kiki’s a pretty good summoner and concealed us as good as she could, but he wasn’t there for a fight.
Swear to all spirits, after our talk I had the urge to say something along the lines of ‘Thanks sir, I’ll escort her home right after prom at 11pm.’
He also seemed genuinely freaked out by the fact I’d intend to share my safehouse with 3 ghouls, but after he had a talk withJohn, things seemed okay.
And yet again, since I killed a cop, I can’t go back to the Nest. Seeing things positive, I can get the bus back in shape, make it more comfy as we’re here for a pretty long time.
The gang had their own troubles back home and I can’t help but feel bad for letting them down on this one. They’re all alive and well, though for Neil, it was a damn close shave.
Gen Wong proved to be a fucking serious threat. Dude’s gone toxic and threw everything he could when they cornered him and foiled his super villain scheme of taking over the Nest.
Shit really hit the fan, what he did still echoes through the whole community and if that wasn’t enough, a toxic spirit broke free and now claims China Town or something.
Still can’t believe Glitzy didn’t take that thing down…a free toxic is never good news.
But as far as I gathered, Neil welcomed that spirit and cut a deal…I just hope that won’t backfire.
Or if it does, at least this time I hope I’ll be around.

Now we’re a few weeks in and having a good time.
We got to know our neighbors, an urban tribe. Arrogant assholes, kinda, and when they talked about ghoul bounties I was pretty close to invite some more friends for dinner.
Some space bread deescalated the situation, though.
The others came around for some BBQ, all feels really nice and family like again, despite the looming shadow of consequences and the B&E we’re about to get in soon.
Kiki made friends with the little earth spirits living under my ward and helped me with the bus and all the stuff I patched into that old thing.
We even painted it all hippie style…
Spirits, I love that girl.
It’s strange, you know. It’s been a long time since I could just enjoy some rest. And though everything feels right with her around and I even get to the point where I’d use the word ‘peace of mind’ there’s still so much eating away at me.
Until this clarity or closure, all this is just another bubble waiting to pop.
