Thorn: There’s a thing I wanted to show you! I’ll look it up when we’re on the train.
Smartcrystal: There’s a listening device in one of your vest buttons. I’ll leave the whole thing at my home when we go by. If you know any other reason you can’t speak freely, say something about wombats.
Leif: What’s a “wombat”?
Oh! I mean — That wasn’t related to the thing, it’s just — I really don’t know what wombats are.
Can someone please get these two a book on tradecraft already?
I tried, only it was hidden as a recipe book. And the post got confused and gave it to the kitchen staff, so now they’re using “Old Fashiond Ceanic Trade Recipes” for the staff’s special dinner nights.
Aw, I’ll miss how dapper Leif looked in his vest. 🙁
That was my one big mistake with this storyline…writing myself into a corner where I had to leave the vest behind for Plot reasons.
This weekend; Thorn Explains: Wombats
Wombats are an exotic marsupial with a harmless, fuzzy appearance, if you don’t mind the wings.
Or I assume so. Everything looks just a little different in this world, after all.
