Golgari Hippie: "Whoa, man! You're aura's all...stressed out-colored and stuff. The upper city's crammed you fulla bad vibes, brother. We're all about peace and love down here. Take a load off, man. Try some of our all natural brownies."
I'm going to type stuff, despite dwindling interest...
Meanwhile back in Lidiya's apartment...
Lidiya: "This is ******* BALLER! How'd you even know it was my birthday?"
She tries on her new gauntlet, testing out its impeccable articulation.
George: "Well, today was Brody's birthday and since you mentioned he was your twin I figured..."
Lidiya: "You're better off sticking with Ambrose, only members of the House of Grey get away with throwing nicknames at him. He really hates his nicknames. And how'd you know it was his birthday?"
George: "I secured myself a spot in his squad. Cool huh?"
"You joined Squad Alabaster on purpose?"
"Sure did, babe. And I slipped out of some cat wrangling mission just for you. So how 'bout unwrapping your next present? It should only take about two minutes."
"And here's what you do next: request an immediate transfer to the Jeevescake Factory, never stepping foot outside of it, and go bake cakes for the rest of your life. Because as soon as my dear brother finds out you bailed on him..."
"Oh, you don't have to worry about that, I've got someone covering for me - this real cool cat who's great with disguises."
"I'd imagine not great enough to spoof his heightened senses. He can practically taste the air, you know. That decoy of yours is as good as dead."
"So, you just sacrificed some poor sap in order to sneak off and earn yourself the Paramore achievement? Quick study. You'll fit in just fine around here."
