Narration: Some time later…
Red: Man! I slept like a rock!
Red: Ah! You out here, fur-face? Did I miss anything while I was out?
Red: He’s awake and you didn’t tell me?!
Zen: Uh… Morning. Coffee?
Red: And you untied one of his hands to give him coffee?!
Sythe: Relax, Red. He told us where to find his stuff nearby, including the coffee. And his hand is only untied because he just finished making what we needed.
Red: Wait, you mean…?
Sythe: Yeah. Raine’s over with the girls treating them right now.
Red: What, really?! He just gave it up like that?! I can’t believe it! I was sure we’d have to beat it out of him! What a sucker!
Red: Now we can take care of this guy and finally get on the road again!
Sythe: No. We can’t yet. There’s a new complication.
Red: Huh? What do you mean by that?
Sythe: He’s made some odd claims while you were out. He says he knows our friends, but more importantly…
Sythe: This guy — Zen — claims the poison he used on the girls isn’t something that can just be fixed with some plants. They need a real healer. While his quick fix will wake them up for now, unless they continue to take it regularly they won’t wake up again by the next morning. In other words, we need him.
