Morally Questionable Day [14 Thory 4363]

The Seductive Whispering in the Shadows
I scouted -- I hunted -- I flew over the quadrangle -- I saw my prey leaving Sprowlween Hall -- I circled -- I descended -- I pounced!
Me:"Good morning, Mynthë!"
Mynthë:"Good morning, Sythyry. I was wondering whether I'd scared you off."
Me:"After one has been killed by a nendrai, lesser perils hold little terror. Indeed, the prospect of inviting a sweet friend to spend the late afternoon utterly fails to chill my blood any-the-more."
Mynthë:"Wait ... Vae killed you?"
Me:"No, not Vae. A male N. Violens, off in the Nereidscray. Named Llethillasessat."
Mynthë:"How did that happen?"

Me:"Late afternoon is Orren-only hour at Beelbarrel Pond. "
Mynthë:"But it's Orren-only hour ... oh. OH! "
Me:"Yes -- that kind of Oh!"
Mynthë:"Both of us?"
