It had been a disorienting morning for Sora.
First Squalk had jarred her awake by sitting bolt upright, quivering with anger.
Just after his cryptic words Oksana had shot into the air, likewise accusing the tyrant of intruding on her sleep.SQUALK: I had a strange dream
MacGuffin sent Squalk a dream?
He really must die
The memory had sent Oksana into a fury of rending blankets and screeching and calling for the gnome's death.OKSANA: "Invade my dreams, offer me coward's way out. Spy on me?! I will get claws on you yet, Macguffin..."
Her dramatics had spurred Davey into a full panic, thinking she was under attack, until Tamsyn waved him off.
With a casualness that had shown she was taking Oksana's outburst in stride, the catfolk had helped herself to some vodka and scoffed at her own manipulated dream.
It soon ceased to bemuse her, though, and the oracle had muttered darkly about an offensive offer that required her to betray her friends. She had begun packing, seeming intent as the others on stopping MacGuffin without delay.TAMSYN: "You would not believe the weird dream I had....Dr. M offered me a generalship..."
The catfolk's final comment had dazed Sora most of all: an invitation to join Fortune's Hand and take down the evil genius.
She hesitated over Tamsyn's offer. That vote of confidence had surprised and pleased the gentle crane to no end...but how well could the blinded Hermit fare without his master spellbook, or without her to act as his eyes?
