Vi sighs, slumping and placing the glass on the table. “Perhaps you’re right.” She hugs herself, hands clutching her elbows as she bows her head. “Look at me, harming myself with obsolete human fare. Perhaps I was always deluding myself. I’m a creature of the night and the damned, after all.”
Your painful reminder has unintentionally jolted her out of her languid mood, and she sadly can’t seem to engage with you anymore. “It’s getting late, and perhaps Tess will be home soon. I’m going upstairs to lie in my bed.”
She glances at you, as if the mere sight of you is hurting her. “Thanks for taking care of me, but may I have some time alone? I think I’d prefer to wait for Tess’ return.”
Bathed in the evening moonlight, you have no choice but to bid farewell to the Countess, leaving her in the Grand House to contemplate days long past.
YOUR HANGOUT WITH VI ENDS HERE!
