"Someone fill me in. What happened?"
Abigail staggered. "Bu... But... The only one who's died since Darkwhite... Has been Jesse!"I also found out that Darkwhite's killer, isn't alive.
"I don't believe Jesse had the power to eliminate guests," Palkia said simply. "When he said that his power was a liability if used wrong, my guess was that he had to power to block others from acting. The sort of thing that could interfere with protection or surveillance if poorly aimed. And for various reasons, I thought someone on the committee might have an affinity for the idea of giving a blocking power to the Nice team." The dragon didn't seem like it intended to elaborate on this potentially 4th-wall-breaking point."I asked her before I even knew about Jesse's death..." Lee muttered. "I don't believe he killed her, but if we really need to ask one of them, then I will. If no one has anything they actually want to ask..."
"Ah... Thank you." Tabitha still had no idea what was happening but at this point he would try to roll with it.His claws dug into the crouch, tearing through its fabric easily. Someone would have to have to fill that dog in, so why not him? One canine to another? Lee decided to keep his face buried in the couch, however. "You missed a lot. I don't care where to start, but Mia was naughty, we found out that there were other Pokemon here other than us, like that Zangoose that nearly froze to death, a Seviper with a lisp... that Rillaboom... We fixed the ski lift, ruined the Zangoose's notes, found more evidence of this dumbfuck of a Committee being run by incompetent fools... And now, Jesse is dead."
"I also found out that Darkwhite's killer, isn't alive. So either, one of us is still naughty, or they can kill us from wherever the fuck they end up when we vote them out."
"But can't the Oshawott do that? He said that he protected himself and the Ralts last night. And if you're going to break the fourth wall..."I thought someone on the committee might have an affinity for the idea of giving a blocking power to the Nice team." The dragon didn't seem like it intended to elaborate on this potentially 4th-wall-breaking point.
Tabitha looked at the little Oshawott nestled in the Ralts' arms, tears flowing from both their eyes.Gen stared at Jesse's open present. None of Tabitha's, Lee's or Abigail's words registered for him. His eyes were wide, and his mouth was agape.
Jesse was gone.
Drip, drop, drip, drop.
If he'd just chosen to protect Jesse and Abigail instead of selfishly protecting himself in addition to Abigail, Jesse would still be here.
Drip, drop, drip, drop.
He collapsed onto the floor, tears flowing rapidly, dampening the Reunion Cape he clutched onto tightly.
He had failed.
This was his fault.
Tabitha shrugged. "I can't blame you. I was absent the previous day and had offered no help. My power prevents me from being eliminated at night. But I would be notified if my power had been activated. No one has targeted me--at least not yet. How do we win? Someone killed the Delphox last night. I think it's clear that whoever killed him must be found out and eliminated. Unless what Lee said holds true for this--if Darkwhite's killer isn't alive, then is it possible that whoever killed Jesse also isn't alive?""I don't particularly think anyone here is guilty though," Palkia went on, humming to itself as it slowly rotated in midair. "I had considered eliminating Tabitha last night, but thought better of it. At the very least it seemed right that he should get to explain his gift. But if guests are still being eliminated, then..."--the spatial one turned to face the TV, eyes flashing red--"how do we win?"
To Whom it May Concern:
It would seem that there was a bit of confusion the night prior, the one you had asked was more focused on other things to answer properly. Something regarding the cowboy that showed up. Cowfox? Foxboy. The dad one.
And so, after prying one victim off of another, we have gathered the proper information for you and your investigation. The one who killed Darkwhite is still among the living.
Also, as compensation for this little fiasco, we've listed a few different rewards, please shout out the one you want, and we will deliver it to you post haste:
A Fancy Party Hat
Some quality time with Jesse
The Answer to what you are even supposed to be doing anymore
Taco Tuesday extended to Friday
Congratulations! You can ask Jesse one question.
We're sorry, but the answer to that is... complicated. And you've run out of time, this has gone on longer than it needed to. Have a nice day!
