Anathema

by artificer urza
1810 England, the height of the Napoleonic wars. It was thought that humans walked the path of enlightenment leaving monsters and dark things behind. However, those monsters and night stalkers merely hide in the darkness, as a young maid, Bernadette, soon finds out.

@MercenaryX: It's a "meanwhile, over the next few nights". I was worried the transition would seem too sudden. Guess I was right.

Wait, what just happened? Are we seeing a flashback or something?
Isn't that one of Jabba the Hutt's lines...? Hoping this guy experiences a similar fate.
Oh I highly doubt that
Not good, something hopefully interrupts, but I hope for the good kind.
Uh oh
I wouldn't trust this guy to do train spotting.
She doesn't trust him, I wouldn't either
@MercenaryX: Sometimes you just have to wait for a person to do a thing.
Oh yeah, sure this guy was just on time and didn't set this up.
Thank you.

I still need to set up vol 4 & 5 for digital purchase though. So much to do, so little time.
@MercenaryX: Nope. Decades of mental conditioning through physical and mental abuse and drugs.
Welp, that doesn't seem like a healthy state of mind.
Oh dear. Remote mind control?
German dialogue by Romaric Barreteau and Eva-Maria Deiß

Warum sie? Was ist so besonders an ihr? Sie ist hässlich, dreckig und stinkt…
(Why her? What’s so special about her? She’s ugly… filthy… dirty…)

Er wird mich fallen lassen… nein nein… das kann er nicht tun! Ich bin sein… ich, ich brauche ihn…
(He’ll throw me away… no no… he can’t… I’m his… I need him…)

Wenn sie doch bloß nicht da wäre. Wenn sie verschwinden würde. Wenn sie… sterben würde…
(If she weren’t here… If she were gone… If she died…)

Sie, sie griff mich an. Ich verteidigte mich selbst und sie zerbrach wie ein wertloser Gegenstand in meinen Händen.
(She, she attacked me. I defended myself and she broke in my hands like a worthless thing/item in my hands).

ZORN: Er wird mir vergeben. Er wird bei mir bleiben. Er wird mich lieben.
(He’ll forgive me. He’ll keep me. He’ll love me.)
Whoo boy
Elena is up, in another part of the mansion and not alone.
