And so we return to the Benefactor and her team out in the Swamp;
Including the start of something quite familiar
Ah, excellent; Kai and Tonei have set to work! Good, goooood…you two keep at that, we need EVERYTHING that I left in your work orders. Oh, and probably more things I’ll think of later; lots of looooove, darling! Now I’ll slink away before you get the chance to look up and glare at me again. Hopefully you’re not just ignoring me. That wouldn’t work too nicely.
See? You’re such a wonderfully hard workers, and it pays off so nicely, doesn’t it? I told
you I knew what I was doing! What do you mean, “I wouldn’t go that far”? Hmph!
How lovely; random socializing, and the beds have gone up! It’s only a temporary setup, of course, but we just can’t have people collapsing from exhaustion in random places; they’ll sleep so poorly that everything else will get done too slo- I mean, it’s not good for them!
Kai, darling, be a dear and whip together 4 more beds? Thaaaaanks~ <3
OH MY VERY GOODNESS, THERE WAS A SECOND ANCIENT ONE HIDING NEARBY! WE CHOSE THE MOST GLORIOUS SPOT AND WE DIDN’T EVEN KNOW IT! EYIEEE!
<coughs, takes a sip of water> Thank you, Emmie, I needed that. <sniff, sniff> …where did you get this, we don’t have the well set up yet…? Ew…
How lovely, people stopping to have dinner tog- DINING TABLES AND CHAIRS! I forgot those! KAI!
Emmie’s decided he wants to see if you can fish in the murky waters of the swamp, while Roth thinks he’s absolutely foolish and they must start farming if they want to build up their food stocks. Well, no, Roth didn’t say that, but you could clearly see it in his expression…
Seems Nina’s little fox friend was also curious about the fish! Pity you can’t actually catch us some, little guy. Then you’d actually be useful!
Oh, you are SUCH a social little group <3
Well done, Tonei! It looks like the altar from the story! I love it! What do you mean “Of course you do”…?
Nina, darling, why do you let him run around on the table while you eat…?
Altros, your fox is trying to steal your wife’s dinner…but it’s so nice to see people dining together!
You…want to start working with metal now? No, no, that…is a very noble and beneficial pursuit…it just means you won’t be working at the altar…well, we’ll just have to get someone else doing the masonry now in your place!
You want to start chasing down something bigger than fish, Emmie? Oh, of course! Good luck with your hunt, bring us back lots of tast- I mean, use- uh…animals.
