~~Holiday Special (Day 4/7, Page 2/6)~~
“Are all aberrations as, um... as violent and crazy as Geoffrey was?”
“Geoffrey? Oh, is that the name of the one we fought?”
Lynnette rubbed above her eye patch. “Do you happen to know where he is?”
“I’ve been wanting to get revenge for my eye.”
He wasn’t sure how else to say it, so he just said, “I killed him.”
Lynnette blinked. “Oh. What happened?”
But Hector couldn’t bring himself to explain. He knew she was one of the few people who would understand. Hell, she probably understood well enough already. But he just didn’t want to talk about it. He didn’t even want to think about it.
At his strained silence, she seemed to get the idea. “Oh, I didn’t answer your question. From what Roman said, yeah, I think all aberrations are extremely violent. I think his exact words were that aberrations are always looking for amusement. They’re just always amused by killing people, apparently.”
“He said they can’t really be controlled, either, because they tend to just do whatever they want. The only reason Abolish is able to manage them at all is because it lets them run wild.”
“Oh, and they grow stronger by consuming souls. That’s why they all enjoy killing so much.”
Hector just nodded.
She held her gauntlet up again. “I’m not sure if this can grow stronger in the same way. I’m not sure it matters, either. Even if I knew how to consume someone’s soul, it sounds pretty disgusting.”
His mouth twisted. “Egh, yeah... and you wouldn’t be able to consume a servant’s soul, anyway.”
“Our souls are bound to our reapers, so...”
“Hmm. Would I be able to consume a reaper’s soul, then?”
Hector looked at Garovel.
‘I don’t know! Probably! I don’t think I wanna find out!’
Hector offered Lynnette a shrug.
“What else do you want to know?”
‘Ask her for details about what that wrist guard is capable of.’
