She slowly walks to the desk and turns the computer screen around. After that I hear her digging through some drawers.
Candy: "What'cha looking for?"

Marsh: "Heads up!"

She tosses something towards me.
Candy: "What's this?"

Marsh: "Some kind of tiny magnifying glass. Will that work?"

I take a quick peek through it.

Candy: "Yeah, this should work. Thanks Marsh."

She starts clicking away at her keyboard.

I leave Marsh to work on those computer papers, and goto my room so I can finally read Officer Nibbles' note.

"Keep a close eye on those earrings Candy, there's been a lot of jewelry thefts in town lately. Don't let those fall into the wrong hands. A criminal running around with magic earrings is the last thing this city needs."

"P.S. Don't let me catch your 'Pet' running around town."

"P.S.S. If this note's too small to read, just let me know and I'll go out to the car for a magnifying glass for you."

Don't worry, if we get stolen we'll be sure to give them bad advice. Or make sure they don't do anything too bad, anyway.

...hmm, I wonder if your sister would want to borrow us at one point?

Aw, damnit, I just thought of a prank we could’ve pulled on Marsh! You should’ve sat at her computer with the monitor facing you, called her into the room, and then when she came into the room, you could’ve pretended you were looking at her computer and then said, “Wow, Marsh, this is a lot of porn! I didn’t know you could be so kinky!”

It would’ve been funny and I thought of it too late! DX

>"Keep a close eye on those earrings Candy, there's been a lot of jewelry thefts in town lately. Don't let those fall into the wrong hands. A criminal running around with magic earrings is the last thing this city needs."
Meh, even if we did get stolen, we wouldn’t help whoever took us, so we’d be pretty useless to the thief.

Still, it’d be nice to not get stolen in the first place.

>”P.S. Don't let me catch your 'Pet' running around town."
What? Not even in an emergency when we’d need Tybalt? But those are the times when we’d need him the most!

>”P.S.S. If this note's too small to read, just let me know and I'll go out to the car for a magnifying glass for you."
*facepalm*

Nibbles, how are we supposed to tell you we need a magnifying glass if we can’t read that in the first place?!

Well, I guess now that that’s outta the way, is there anything else to do before going to bed or should you just go to bed?

.....and maybe hide us under your pillow or something? It’ll be harder to steal us that way! Unless you’re a really heavy sleeper, which hopefully you aren’t!

Still we'd prefer not to get stolen if possible thank you.

Thanks for the re-assurance. Don't suppose you'd try and haunt them while you're all at it as well?

>...hmm, I wonder if your sister would want to borrow us at one point?
Yeah, if she ever "borrows" you, haunt her especially.

>Go by Marsh's room and ask if there's anything you're able to help with, if she'll let you/needs any.
I head back up to Marsh's and room and ask if there's anything I can do to help.

Marsh: "Hate having to rely on the stuff, but some caffeine to...no wait, coffee maker's busted."

Candy: "What happened to it?"

Marsh: "Sugar happened to it."

You'd think sugar and coffee would go well together, guess my sister begs to differ.
>Is there anything else to do before going to bed or should you just go to bed?
Candy: "Anything else need to be done around here Marsh?"

Marsh: "Yeah this computer needs to be done!"

It starts beeping a couple of times

Marsh: "I swear if you freeze or shut down without saving, you'll be shut down the window!"

I wince for a second, hoping she didn't get up to do just that.

The computer dings

Marsh: "Yeah that's what I thought!"

With that, I head to my empty room and hit the hay before the computer really does die on Marsh.

> I guess one thing you can do is set us under your pillow when you sleep, so if this criminal is around they have to go through that if they want us.

Good thinking! I take off the earring and place it under the pillow for safe keeping. Goodnight!

At some obscenely late and exhausting time of night...

I get up hearing something banging on a door somewhere? I can also hear Marsh is pounding away at the keyboard upstairs too? I'd let Marsh handle or check
whatever's making all the noise, but she's probably busy enough dealing with that computer. I fumble around with the earring and get it back on properly.

I roll out of my room and find someone's knocking on the front door? Only person I can think of is my sister. I ask to double check anyway.

Might want to confirm identity by peeking through a window or peephole, if there is one. Or you could just ask something she should know the answer to. Something from your childhood, for instance.

If Marsh was right about her being out drinking all night, I'd hope she didn't drive home. Knowing my sister though, I wouldn't be surprised if she did drive home drunk.

>Who knows what the cultists are capable of. Get visual confirmation before you open that door.
No peep holes or windows in sight. While it sucks I can't see her to make sure, at least I don't have to worry about something breaking in through a window.

>you could just ask something she should know the answer to. Something from your childhood, for instance.
>Ask her three things only you two would know.
Candy: "Paranoia check, in what grade did I do so bad in that the old man sent me away to study, where did he send me to study, and what class was it."

Sugar: "Are serious right now! Cut the crap and open the door, I'm freezing!"

Candy: "Just answer the question."

She starts mocking my voice now,
Sugar: "Meh, just open the door!"

>Does it sound like your sister?
Yeah, it's her voice alright, or a dead on impersonation of it.

I stand there and wait.

Sugar: "Ugh fine. It was back in third grade, he sent ya to uncle's place for the summer, and it was history class."
I fumble around with the door and let her in.

If a drunk person passes out you put them on their left side, legs and arms bent and close together, chin up(but still pointed to the side) and mouth directed downwards at an angle so any vomit drains out. That is called the "recovery position". Make sure she's breathing properly. If she's choking on that vomit you need to call 911.

I roll her up over to the stairs and get her into the recovery position. After that I check and make sure she's still breathing. What's next?

She quickly creaks her way down the stairs, and shortly comes back with a mop and a bucket.

Marsh: "I'll haul her up to bed, you go get some snow to melt for the mop water.

Candy: "What do I melt the snow with?"

She lets out a big yawn.

Marsh: "I don't know, the microwave or something?"

Well you could do that if you put it in a bowl or other microwave-safe container first. It's gonna take forever though.
Still hard to believe you guys don't have any tapwater.
>>
No. 866604 ID: 6780f5

Snow is next to impervious to microwaves, so that would make it a pain to melt like that. It would be less of a pain to just mop with the snow and let it melt from the room-/vomit-temperature, with the added benefit of cooling the vomit down so it doesn't smell as much.

I don't feel like standing around a microwave all night or day? waiting to melt snow in a microwave. Guess it's the lazy way for now. I step outside for a quick moment to fill the bucket with snow and get to mopping.

Say Sugar used her hands to break her fall/dropped it near her face when she passed out, and then threw up on the letter, so you couldn't see it under the vomit.

Candy: "How's my sister doing?"

Marsh: "She's in bed, out like a light. How's mopping up the floor going?"

Candy: "Not too good."

Marsh: "Can't be too bad if you're still dry."

Marsh: "This better not be going where I think it is."

Candy: "Sugar must have dropped it when she passed out, and then-"

I hear her mutter something, but couldn't understand her. She stomps over to the stairs where I put the mail and snatches her letter out of it.

She uses one of her claws the rip open the letter and starts reading it.

Yeah, I'm having a hard time staying here awake myself. As I head off to my room, I let Marsh know I'm around if she needs help with anything. I don't hear her reply back.
