If only you could’ve gotten those brass knuckles. Then you could’ve handed them to Eudora right now and she could test them out on these guys! Oh, well.

>Confess your love to each other.
Go ahead and confess to her!

And make sure you phrase it so that you tell her that even if she never loves you back, you’ll always love her!

Maybe she is jealous of me. But perhaps she hates Eudora more. Kyzil is only using me as a tool to get to her.

Eudora: “Don’t answer. We’re not playing this stupid game.”

>>918997

I’m anxious to confess. Yet, I’ve let my feelings known so many times before. Not to mention these bullies know I don’t hang out with many people but her.

Ganymede: “Eudora, you know I’m in love with you. I’m not ashamed of it.”

Ganymede: “I like the way you... punch. And kick stuff. You’re a very cool dude.”

Eudora: “Ganymede, you dolt.” She sighs with a roll of her eyes, “You know I don’t feel the same. Sorry.”

I expected that. It still lets me down--it’s never as bad as the first. But I kept trying over the years. Of course, my bullies poke fun of this event with sarcastic pity. Kyzil seems to loosen her grip on me.

Kyzil: “Awe, you’re no fun at all, Eudora. You’ve hurt his feelings! Hnnk~

Ganymede: “But you know what, Eudora? That’s fine if you don’t love me. I can’t shake off the same feeling I had when I first laid eyes on you.”

Kyzil: “Wait. Are you kidding me right now?

Ganymede: “And I’m still happy to be your friend--”

Kyzil: “Oh, come on Gany. You can’t still be attracted to this... sad, depressing, and apathetic locust! She’s rejected you and every other guy’s advances with a punch to the face!”

Kyzil: “She can’t feel love or treat anyone right but herself! You know that? You’d go to Ndepthteph’s Maw and back and she still wouldn’t notice you exist!”

Kyzil puts a hand against my cheek and turns my head to look eye-to-eye.

Kyzil: “Wouldn’t you rather go out with a lady like me~? Despite all that I’ve put you through; that even I find your innocence your best quality--perhaps I just never knew how to express myself near you.”

Kyzil: “I can show you a wonderful night--even if it doesn’t work out between us in the end! I can turn this around and make you feel wanted. Something Eudora can never give.”

Kyzil: “Just say the word, Gany. Perhaps you’ll take the chance with me~ It’s certainly a better chance than with her!”

Kyzil: "Don't be a fool for once!"

Apathetic? She's shown she cares more about me than you do. And maybe it's just an ordinary amount of caring for people's general well being but boy does that say more about you than it does her.

Is she serious right now? After how much she’s tormented you over the years, she thinks you’ll choose her over Eudora? That’s not going to happen.

“If loving Eudora makes me a fool, then I’ll continue to be a fool. However, I’d have to be an idiot to choose you over Eudora! Sure, Eudora may never love me back, but at least she doesn’t beat me up for fun like you’re always doing!”

Who knows? Maybe Eudora will like you more if you actually stand up for yourself instead of just letting yourself get beat up like you always do?

That's a load of bullshit.
Besides, it's better to have a good friend than a bad romance. Eudora may not return your feelings, but she's still your friend, and that's something Kyzil can't reproduce.

Man that makes no sense. Eudora doesn't care who you're dating.

Persistance won't change Eudora's mind. It'll just make her hate you.

On the flip side, Kyzil is creepily obsessed. Maybe give her a try? She might stop bullying you at least.

Point out that Kyzil regularly mocks, bullies and abuses you while Eudora actually tries to protect and help you.

Hmm. Although it’d be a weird turnaround to date Kyzil--I feel like there’s not a lot of truth to her offer. And she’s merely toying with me again. What would Eudora think of me, after all this time loving her, if I finally give up and date her rival?

Cth Kyzil gog uuahriik thosc*. I can’t see myself having fun on a romantic night with her now.

Ganymede: “Well, if loving Eudora makes me a fool, then I’d be a bigger idiot to hang out with you. She’s not apathetic at all. I still consider her a friend; something not even you can reproduce. You’ve done nothing but mock and bully me all my life, Kyzil.”

“Sorry but I’ll have to pass.”

* Yet Kyzil is quite a [expletive].

Kyzil: “This is getting boring anyway."

Kyzil: "Guys! Let’s go find some food to eat.”

Kyzil: “S’dhaquacama*, dork! Bhothogoshol is laughing down at ya!”

She tosses my comic book and trots off. I guess that's the last of her for a while. Hopefully I won't run into her or her goons at the church.

Yeah, S’dhaquacama...’ I respond once Kyzil is far enough away with her goons. For a moment I do wonder if she really meant what she said—that I could’ve enjoyed her company. Or that my love for Eudora will just be in vain. Hrmm...

I pick up the comic book and dust it off. A ripped corner here and there but it’s readable. Eudora’s voice murmurs behind me. “You good?” She frowns, like always, and her eyes merely glance up and down to see mud splotches on my robe. ‘Yeah, I’m good.’ I reply.

Thank Bhothogoshol you showed up! O-oh! And you most importantly, of course.

Uh-huh” she mumbles while I clutch the magazine. “Well watch out for those jerks. I’m just gonna head over--

>Give Eudora the book
--Before you go I... was in the market today. I know it’s not an appropriate time after... what just happened. But I thought you might like this comic book! Y-you like punching things so I thought maybe you’re up f-for a little action.

I mean, not with me! I didn’t mean it that way. I mean, something to read--It’s an action comic!’ I’m always a bit nervous when I gift things to her. Usually it’s pretty things. A rock or a flower. I don’t know how she’ll react!

She looks over the cover. “Vulgar Rush?” Eudora thinks. She flips a page, “Uh, thanks. I guess. I’ll... read it later then?” She shifts the issue into her robe-pocket.

Are you gonna be okay?

Ganymede: Yeah, I think I’ll be fine~

I brush more dirt off my robe trying to put on my best ‘fine’ face. She merely twitches an antenna.

Ganymede: BUT!

Eudora: ?

Ganymede: If you want to be sure, you can walk me home every day.

Eudora: ...I’ll see if I can...

Eudora: I mean, I was just going back to the orphanage now.

Ganymede: Oh, hey, me too! I got food if you want some. Qua-quibb flanks, mmm~

Eudora: ...

Ganymede: And beer.

We’re walking through the markets; it’s a straight path back to the orphanage. I feel much safer with her already. The students I recognize seem to avoid her with a subtle side-step. I try not to talk so much so I often split up my conversations on the way.

Ganymede: ...And another thing, Eudora!

Ganymede: I got a job!

Eudora: More charitable work? Is the Gorm farm short on staff?

Ganymede: No I mean a real job. I’m a delivery boy! Starting tomorrow.

Eudora: This is news.

--speaks through me! Listen to me now! Listen good! I am here to save you!

Ganymede: It’s nothing! I have to deliver some weapons to the next village over; in Corbon! Something about a few daggers a collector has ordered. Should take a day to get there on foot, a day to walk back.

--blasphemers will step through His gate, unto His roost! Devoured as you’re so deserved! But you still can embrace--

Ganymede: You know, I wouldn’t mind if you tagged along. Just a suggestion. Could make an eeeasy six yuggoths! I promise I won’t talk so much.

Eudora: Eh, you can probably make the trip alone. I’ve got some--

--remember I give you all a chance to be free! This village has no refuge when the Voxxus collapse! Shy away now and you may serve beside--

Eudora: Some, uh, detention work--

--Don't you walk away! Listen to me! Look at me. Look at me when I speak to you! You. Are. Doomed!--

Preacher: Each and every one of you will be first to ruination! You will suffer just as you suffer now through your ignorant lives, oblivious to his call! No, no you choose to ignore his word because he speaks the truth! His maw inevitable! You lost your way, children, but I can save you! I hold out my hand for you! Every night before I sleep, I feel guilt. Guilt that I haven’t saved enough! If I could just save one more, I say! If I could save one more! It’s not too late for the children, they can be saved!

Her teachings are trickery, they are false, and a means to distract from the inevitable! Pests, the lot of you! Why choose to be blind? I hold the Voxxus Neb* and preach only the undeniable truths. It says here: On the back of the great cosmic centipede, Voxxus** was but a floating puddle of slag! It was the embodiment of anti-life, the deep dark at the beginning as it should be forever! Ndepthteph the first born! The favorite child of Relik! But nay, the wretched grub plagued Voxxus with Bhothogoshol through the craquelure of space...!

Peacefully engage the Doomsayer in dialogue. Do not provoke them with insults or direct statements. Instead, try to find the source of their fears that the faith is untrue.

There may be a hidden kernel of wisdom amidst their proclamations of apocalypse. That, and it would be good if a member of the faith could soothe their obvious and intense fears in some way.

‘She and He’? Must be referencing our Gods Bhothogoshol and Ndepthteph again. Well, not the same guy, but occasionally we have other fanatics who spout their beliefs when they stop by this village. It’s been pretty common lately, in fact.

We’re only passing through the street. Our orphanage should be close. Eudora is staring at the loudmouth so I try to distract her and walk on.
