Sophie lets Lisa into the apartment. You quietly and expertly pull your boxers on underneath your blanket, then start coughing.

You: “Oooh”

You: “Ooh-woaaah…”

Lisa: “Chuck!!”

Lisa: “Are you ok?”

You: “I came down with something bad!”

You: “Sophie was just giving me a check-up to… to”

You: “Make sure it’s nothing serious.”

Sophie:

Sophie: “Yyyyesss”

Sophie: “Full body check-up”

You: “Heh, damn right”

Sophie shoots you a glare and you shut up.

Sophie: “Chuck would you be nice and give sofa to Lisa to lie down?”

You nod and stand, pulling the blanket up over your shoulders.

Lisa: “Huh… smells weird in here. Thanks Sophie. I’m sorry to intrude…”

Lisa looks very concerned.

Lisa: “So… what’s the diagnosis?”

Sophie: “Uh”

Sophie: “Benign… general… felinosis.”

Lisa: “Oh!!”

Lisa: “That sounds serious!”

Lisa: “Chuck, you shouldn’t be out delivering pastries to everyone if you are ill!!”

It's cool, Sophie was just saying it's non-transmissible once symptoms set in. Boy, it's lucky nobody else got sick! It must be the rural fresh air, Coxwetters are made of sterner stuff, huh?

It occurs to me we now have an excuse, with a witness, for missing our date. You got sick! Yeah, that was totally it, you feel terrible.

It wasn't that bad this morning, I promise.

You DO know some dieseases aren't contagious, right?
Plus, I haven't had any symptoms showing until around... what five? It was after work. That's why we're here so late. And you have too-much-workitis. Get someone to split the work, seriously. If you're pulling all nighters, that means your doing work for two people, and that's inefficient. That's not doin' Susan no favors.

If Susanna ain't gonna pull up the cash for no 2nd assistant, she's gonna kill you eventually, you know? I know people who've died from working too hard, no foolin'.

That would work except for the other phone call, a certain someone already knows we basically banged the spider. So no sick leave unless you wanna try and roll some epic d20's on your persuasion skill.

From what I remember, Lisa likes it when we're heroic.

So show off your scars, and say that even though you were rugged enough to fight off the beast, you may have been injured more than you let on.

But keep that in the strictest confidence, you wouldn't want anyone to worry.

alright so the mayor employs her as a cockblock. Alright let's get her to break her own rules. Let's ask Lisa to teach us some French when we are feeling better. That will be our first step to stuffing this beaver and fucking the mayor over (puns 100% intended)!

I Know I know... *Hack* But from what Sophie tells me it's not contagious, at least.

That was an internal idea, not an agreed upon date.

Lisa takes off her glasses and lays down on the couch with her clipboard on her belly.

Lisa: “Hm… ok, I see.”

Lisa: “Well just… don’t…”

Lisa yawns.

Lisa: “work yourself too hard…”

Lisa: “if you’re not feeling…”

Lisa: [beaver snoring]

The clipboard slides down onto the floor, and you take this time to stow the gin away in one of the kitchen cabinets.

You: “That condom’s been on my dick this whole time.”

Sophie: “Ew…”

You take it off and dispose of it in the restroom before washing up.

You: “I take it you’re alright with Lisa staying here?”

Sophie: “It looks like… she needs a quiet place to sleep.”

Yeah, at some point a serious talk with the mayor and her habit of forcing overtime might be in order.
Also, peek at her clipboard when you pick it up to set it on the table for her.

I guess this means you can't sleep over. Tell Sophie you'd have loved to cuddle a bit more but hugs will have to do. Tell her you'd love to hook up again sometime, and you're even better sober fyi.

Also tell her that the mayor is obviously up to some weirdness and if she wants some protection against that weirdness she can talk to Ramona about it. Tell her to specifically ask for réveillé, but warn her it'll taste awful. (it's okay to say this since we basically said that in front of the mayor already)

AND PEEK AT THE CLIPBOARD.

You: “Guess that means I’m not spending the night, huh?”

Sophie: “…another time.”

You: “Does she do this ‘neighborhood checkup’ thing every night?”

Sophie: “Hm… no. This is the first time.”

You: “You know, that mayor of yours is up to some weird shit. I’m gonna take a peek at her notes to see what I can find out.”

The first page has a few hand-written notes. Normal daily tasks around City Hall… make coffee, organize records, call library. There’s a crudely drawn map of the town in the corner.

Moving, changing it’s shape, and pulsing with beautiful light. Dentritic tendrils materialize before you, extending forth from a breathtaking and profound darkness.

There is a sound in your ears, louder than anything you have ever heard before and yet it does not hurt. The sound of a crackling fire, of someone crumpling an empty bag of chips, or rain on the roof. Suddenly, it is a flock of birds taking flight inside a parking garage. The tendrils move slowly and peacefully, swaying like fibrous kelp in an endless ocean. You cannot feel yourself breathing, and yet your lungs fill with the most invigorating air. Someone has just given you good news on a good day.

There is no form to these things that you see, and before you know it, there is no form to you. You are standing on a trampoline, a friendly soft ground that gives way to your weight while the warm uterine waters keep you balanced. The sound subsides, and you are sorry to hear it go. Now the silence is unsettling, such that you can hear the blood crawling in your veins.

Well?

You’ve been gone an awfully long time.

You answer, but you have no mouth so the words simply convey to this figure before you. You don’t know where you were supposed to be.

What do you mean? I told you to be back before midnight.

You are a bit dumbfounded.

Lisa?

Who is this?!

Is this… CHUCK?!

Wow. Does this mean Lisa is completely aware that the mayor has spooky magic powers? I mean, if she's been communicating through the clipboard all this time...

Is it possible she's unaware that the clipboard works this way? Shit, if it's always been there under the first page, then... she was repeatedly using it during Naz's party. That's how the mayor knew about Truth or Dare. Plus, if she's aware of the clipboard, then maybe she's cooperating fully with the mayor, which explains the necklace and her super friendly conversation. However, it also means she was likely truly tempted by Chuck and the kissing etc. The necklace wasn't an idea planted in her head or a precaution, it was something she specifically requested.

tl,dr: Lisa is more than just a stooge, she's a co-conspirator. Probably. Which means either the mayor has some kind of explanation for her spooky mind control powers that REALLY isn't mind control, or Lisa is buying into the whole idyllic sinless community thing.

Speaking of sinless I'm starting to wonder if the mayor is discouraging it in order to keep the monsters from harassing the citizens.

She has to be aware of the mayors' capabilities - there's no way that the layout would keep her around if she couldn't use her in some some fashion. A better question is why Linda is bending to her will without question? Almost every time we've asked her about the mayors' background or the clipboard she gets real defensive about it like she'd be in some serious trouble if she let anything slip out. I also think it's a time to beat feet and get out of Sophie's place now that we've been located, which might bring the heat down on spider babe unintentionally.

FUCKING VOODOO DEMON MAGIC!

Snap out of it Chuck! Then steal that page and try folding it over, or keeping it covered. We should take it back to Ramona. The snake will obviously replace it but we need Ramona to identify it (and maybe neutralize it as well).

Keep in mind that Lisa might not actually know what she is doing when she looks at it. It is very hypnotizing, as we now knoww, and the mayor could just be using further control our cute beaver.

Guys I think "end of chapter" means the thread is done and a new one is gonna start. I would assume this means input to chuck right now is less on the side of useful and more on the side of spam
