Claire: "If it is just one of her puppets, that would explain how she knew you had the mana stone, and where you live - she just looked inside your head.

And then she robbed a gun store. How many guns were stolen?"

"A lot? She had a sack slung over her shoulder full of them. Depending on what she took, probably in the one or two dozen range.
There was. Also, a note on my bed after the break in. Just said "Sorry" and nothing else."

Claire: "I don't think she's really sorry.

And now she has one or two dozen guns, and maybe she has one or two dozen more puppets."

"...and I asked her to help track down the thief.

This is assuming it's her. Well, what if it is Aldente doing it all with her puppetmaster ♥♥♥♥ again? What do we do?"

Claire: "Well."

She turns to Ingret, who's lounging on the over-sized cushion and watching the two of you.

Claire: "She's probably not worried about telepathy."

"...True. Heck, perhaps we might even surprise her with Ingret.

Unless, of course, she's already scanned my memories and knows we have a witch on our side. Gah, I'd forgotten just how infuriating dealing with her can be."

Claire looks vacantly at the floor.





Claire: "What now?"

"Now? We'll go talk to her, and hopefully find out what she knows about this mess.

...And later, I uh, promised to take her out to dinner. Not my best move."

"I guess go back and not leave Bezel alone with her anymore. Uh, you don't want to talk to her, right?"

You head back to the office.

Stepping in, you see that Aldente is still seated, and Bezel is in your chair, poking at a spinning HM top on the desk.

Aldente: "Get that machinery squared away?"

"Indeed, safely stored.

Say, Aldente - And I know you can read my mind, so I'll be blunt - What's to say this experiment of yours hasn't really gone rogue, and is in fact another one of your puppet bodies? She did steal enough weaponry to arm a small platoon of aldentes, after all. And, I hadn't told anyone about where I kept my mana stone. You could have used telepathy to scan my thoughts and find that out.

I'd just like to get this squared away. The same skills that make you a valuable ally also make you a bit hard to fully trust."
