I’ve been laying on this couch for the last couple days recovering from wounds from my last run. That Cheech’s Chilli-soy Changa didn’t go down well last night. I swear I tore something running to the facilities after eating that.1 Bones, my personal autodoc, has informed me to stay off the Chilli-soy Changa’s while healing.
“Damn this body!” I yell as a large Wolf spirit forms and blood bursts from my nose.2 “Damn it Luna! Did you have to fight so hard? I’m just summoning you to talk. Crap, this will lay me up for an extra day or two.”
“You look like prey after the hunt.” Luna growls.
“Yeah, some Troll got the jump on me and shot me in the head on the last run.” I say, “Or at least that’s what my companions think. The truth is I delayed to allow him to shoot me. With all the astral projection and time spent with the ‘Old One’, I forgot what I am now. Bullets no longer just flatten against my body without penetrating.”
“Ah!” Luna growls, “You were delaying so the would-be predator would realize he is truly the prey.”
“The look on the troll’s face would have been worth it. Instead I find myself trapped in this body and having a low tolerance to high speed lead. So I must feign incompetence, which after my performance during the run isn’t too hard. Or let them think I’m crazy.”
“Oh BTW Luna, have you seen or spoken to me recently? How am I doing?”
