Aeryn didn't mind the cabins this time around. Still, for a couple reasons that involve having to find somewhere with locking doors
and the subsequent embarrassment
, she needs to be back in the dorms. So yes, fine, she's moving early- even if she's not supposed to- as soon as she's done at the Meerkat campfire
. And yes, her stuff is going straight back to 238.
She's barely in the door when she sees something run across the room and into the kitchen. It's not Bertram, there are no pets left in the room right now, and that makes Aeryn suspicious. Careful not to make too much noise, she follows it, and there she sees the gremlin. It hasn't grabbed anything yet, and Aeryn's not going to let it. Grabbing a pan left on the counter, she goes to hit it-
Which is when the gremlin startles, and takes a bite into her hand before trying to scurry off. Aeryn's reaction is to kick it, sending the thing flying. She walks over, prods it, and satisfied that it's dead, she notices Bertram on one of the walls. "Clean that up, will you?" she asks.
And then she looks at her hand. After a lot of cursing, she goes to the door and locks it.
Of course, that doesn't help, since unless the venom makes her hallucinate that she's stupid, she'll still be able to unlock a door. As it is, she does unlock the locker. And gets her outfit
from Halloween, which she had planned to burn, once upon a time. This would include a long white dress and a blonde wig that she wouldn't have even remembered she had
. When she's finally done primping- yes, primping- Aeryn decides she's ready for an audience. It'll be good to get out of this stuffy place. [Gremlin modded with permission.]
