Back In The Big House
Yeah, they may be killers, but they know better than to mess with Smithy. Even the guards were trying to keep their distance.
Then I heard it, very quiet and far off in the distance.
I heard someone crying.
Gee, I wonder who that could be.
I walked slowly down the main corridor until I came to Pathfinder's cell. There he was, curled up in the corner and blubbering like a little girl.
Now, I have no idea why, but he was wearing a blond wig and what appeared to be red lipstick.
I decided it would be better not to ask. There's probably no answer he could give me that wouldn't make me want to stick a knife in my eye.
He didn't even look up. He just sat there, broken and crying.
GoblinSmithy>> Are you okay?
GoblinSmithy>> Vana'diel to Pathfinder. Over.
It was obvious that I'd have to take more drastic measures.
i.e. I'd have to slap that bitch around.
GoblinSmithy>> Sorry, Pathfinder.
GoblinSmithy>> This hurts you more than it does me.
GoblinSmithy>> Wake up!
GoblinSmithy>> Snap out of it!
GoblinSmithy>> Come on, man!
GoblinSmithy>> Wake up!
GoblinPathfinder>> Is that you?
GoblinPathfinder>> I'm awake!
GoblinPathfinder>> STOP IT!
GoblinSmithy>> Oh... You're awake.
GoblinSmithy>> I didn't realize.
GoblinPathfinder>> It's okay.
GoblinPathfinder>> At least you came back for me.
GoblinPathfinder>> KNOCK IT OFF!
GoblinSmithy>> Just making sure.
GoblinSmithy>> Can't be too careful.
And then, before I could stop him, he started to tell me what had happened to him.
Apparently, his cellmate had gotten "friendly" shortly after I left and the past few days had been a hell of sexual abuse.
Note to self: put knife in eye.
Honestly, Pathfinder might be a pain in the ass (no pun intended), but even he didn't deserve that.
I picked the guy up and started to walk him down toward my cell.
GoblinSmithy>> Which one was your cellmate, by the way?
Pathfinder raised one shaking hand and pointed down the hall.
His cellmate was an Ochu.
For those of you not familiar with Ochus, imagine a giant green octopus with razor sharp fangs and really bad breath.
GoblinPathfinder>> This is a bad, bad place.
As I dropped him onto one of the bunks in my cell, he went quiet again, but for a second I could have sworn I heard him say one last thing...
GoblinPathfinder>> I'm so never watching Hentai again.
If you'll excuse me, I need to go stick a knife where my brain used to be.
