because i don't want her to stay mad at me.
The Theory of Reincarnation
I grabbed a random underling and asked him where Gianna was. We had been searching for quite some time and while Deborah seemed to be enjoying herself by looking at all of the rooms I started to get really anxious. It wasn't like I was parading the human around but I'm sure it would seem that way to anybody who crossed her scent.
"I think she's on her lunch break," the underling offered.
"Lunch?" I asked him. I hadn't heard the word before and I began to wonder if they made it up to get out of working. I would have to look up this lunch break later.
"It's one of the three meals humans eat during the day," the underling described. "The first, breakfast, happens in the morning and is considered the most important. The second, lunch, happens around mid-day, and the third, dinner, happens at night."
Three times a day? That seemed a little excessive.
"Thank you for your help," I dismissed him and continued down the hall with Deborah trailing behind.
"That was some heavy sarcasm," Deborah mentioned, "I couldn't even tell if you were serious or just kidding…"
"About what?" I asked her honestly. She stared at me in shock.
"You're good," she nodded, "maybe even better than I am…"
What kind of insane creature am I conversing with?
"Maybe I could learn something from you," she smiled.
Oh, right, an insane one.
"I doubt it," I muttered as I started walking a little faster. It wasn't fast enough to leave her behind but it was faster than she could handle.
Or so I thought.
"Did I make you mad?" she asked as she appeared at my side. She was breathing heavily but she showed no weakness in her big eyes.
"No," I stated as I looked away, "I'm always like this…"
"Doesn't it suck?"
"Being so depressed," she sighed, like it was the obvious answer.
"I'm used to it," I shrugged. I didn't consider myself depressed, I was just focused.
"What do you like to do for fun?" she asked, stopping.
Fun? Well, I do enjoy the hunt, but I didn't think that it would be the most… appropriate answer.
"I enjoy reading." Whatever gets her to shut up.
"You should get out and explore!" she exclaimed with her arms open. "Live your life!"
"I'll do that later."
"There's no time like the present" she smirked.
"Except for the future," I contradicted.
Then, there it was, my savior; Gianna's scent.
I took Deborah's arm and somewhat dragged her in the direction of Gianna. I finally found her walking in an adjacent hallway.
"Gianna!" I called. She stopped and looked at me confusedly.
"Good afternoon Marcus," she greeted. "What can I do for you?"
"Take this," I ordered, giving her Deborah's hand, "and this," I said as I dug into my pocket and pulled a few hundreds out of my wallet, "and please take her somewhere to eat and shop or something. You can have the rest of the day off."
I turned and left before either one of them could respond.
I need help.
