I could spend the next five minutes writing every obscenity I can think of. It would not be helpful. I am smarter than that, I have more control than that.
Kay has been taken.
Specter does not seem to know about the trouble in the Veil.
Zero's getting ready to go on a rampage.
Lucy Ricardo is going after Hakurei Ryuu.
Of that list of problems, there's only one that I know for a fact I can do something about. Morningstar (Henceforth to be referred to as either Quisling, or Lucy Ricardo), is going after Ryuu. Well, I won't stand for that.
I could have helped Kay. I was working, but I could have gotten her that ritual in time. I could have done a dozen things that might have done the trick. But I missed it. Kay's out facing that THING on her own, and what the hell am I doing?
I was down to 13 days. Tomorrow will be day 12. If someone noticed, yes, I somehow went from day 17 to day 15. I lost a day somehow, and I don't know how. That's worrying. What changed? How did I not notice that?
Kay wrote that she lived near the Pine Barrens. ...oh dear. I just had an idea. I won't say what it is, because if it doesn't pan out, it just plain doesn't pan out. No point in getting anyone's hopes up.
No stories today. I just don't have it in me right now. The living need me more than the dead tonight.
