> “I’ve already asked some of the others what I can do to help with that, Master.”
> ...well.
> That is a very encouraging thing to hear.
> If he’s already planning ahead…
“Alright, everything looks good to me. Off you go, then - and remember Megan, be easy on him.”
> “ ‘course, daddy!”
> You watch the two until they are far out of sight, then shake your head.
> What a strange outcome…
> “Something the matter, sir?”
> You glance aside, to where Thunderlane was waiting in a spot of shade.
> That actually looks rather tempting, and so you go over to join him.
“Good afternoon, Thunderlane. What brings you all the way out here?”

> “We never heard anything bad about him, but nothing good either. He was alone, and… Master, this life isn’t easy for any of us. But we support each other.”
“Like yourself and Vapor Trail.”
> “Yes! And without that, it all caught up to him.”
