"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."


Aldente's eyes narrow slightly, and her smile broadens.

Aldente: "That's quite the theory, Ralph. Do you really distrust me that much?"


Bezel quietly grabs her top, silencing its movement, and watches Aldente with a neutral expression.

"No, I don't distrust you that much. You're capricious in my eyes and don't hold human lives with a lot of value. But you don't seem malicious.
Quite frankly if you wanted then you could have nearly everyone in the building dancing in the palm of your hand, figuratively and literally. I don't think you're doing that, but I'd be an idiot to discount the possibility when dealing with a powerful telepath. So yeah. I don't trust you, but I don't think you're lying."

Aldente: "Well, I'm glad you believe me. It would certainly be disconcerting if the two of you were responsible for the recent events, wouldn't it?"

"At this point, I'm not willing to disregard any possibilities. The thief seemed to know me, and even left a note of apology. I would not be surprised if, in some roundabout way, I ended up causing this."

Aldente: "I see.

So what will you do now?"

"Bezel, you have experience with Haste. Is there some sort of trail, she'd leave behind? Something a skilled telepath could pick up on?"

"Alright. Well, then the good old fashioned way for now. There was the gun store robbery nearby, you could start there to see if they left any evidence. The police are probably still all over it, but I'm sure you can pursued them. Maybe look around uh, abandoned buildings or warehouses in the city, that's the most likely spot to hole up I would think. See if anyone has seen a girl in green pants and white shirt with pale skin and dark hair, possibly one that looks shifty.
Preferably without probing into the sanctity of random peoples' minds.
Bezel, where's the first place you would think to hide in Darson?"

Bezel: "Not sure about any specific places, just, whatever's still in construction or unused at the moment. Plenty of cellars to sneak into, too, but I don't think trespassing to search for the assailant is a good idea."

"Probably not. Still, best to look at what we can, and be ready for their next move. No one steals an arsenal to hang up on a wall and do nothing."
