"Do you think she's dangerous?" You ask. The lady opens her mouth, but shuts it and instead speaks with the one on her chest.

"I think that the worst she could do is see something she doesn't want to. Aside from that, she sounds like she'd be relatively harmless. I wouldn't worry too much." She looks at you, and then at your friend, Noah - He'd been standing in the corner eating the specially-ordered sweets you'd just baked for him. "You two may go now. We'll inform the authorities immediately. We'll find your human."

You nod and turn, walking out with Noah. He thinks for a bit.

"Perhaps I should contact Sybil about this." He mumbles to himself.

"Seriously? That sad, alcoholic nobody?" You ask.

"My friend, assistant, debtor, and the captain of my guard, yes." He smirks. "She's more than just tearful eyes and whiskey bottles, you know."

"Sure, but...why her? We can trust others a lot more."

"That's where I disagree. I can trust Sybil. It's literally impossible for her to betray me." Noah's eyes are darkened from the shade under his hat. You hesitate and then shrug.

"Alright. Let's send her a Doorowl or something."

~~ Elsewhere, in Ecuary ~~

"Wait, Doorowl, what is that woman sitting over there?"

"Don't know! Ordered macaroons! Give?"

"She looks.....human."

"No judge! Stop! You're mean!"

"No, I'm serious, Doorowl! We can't serve a human, we don't know what she wants, or why she's here!"

"Racist! No know if human!"

"You know what I mean! ...Here. Give her the stinking macaroons. But I'm calling the authorities!"

"Meanie!"

"Fat toddler."

The Doorowl pouts before grabbing a tray of macaroons and trotting out of the kitchen.

~~ END OF INTERMISSION ~~

What do you guys think so far?? Anyone got favorite characters??

I love the doorowl and I am so psyched for the return of Noah
I remember very little about him except that he was great and I’m sure he’s even greater with his return

~~ PART TWO ~~








The Doorowl trots up to you, macaroons in wing. That's all swell...Until it announces that his boss is calling the cops on you? What did you even do??

A) "What did I do??"
B) "Do I have to pay for these?"
C) "Thank you, I'll eat quickly and escape without issue."

"What did I do??" You ask. The Doorowl seems confused.

"Do not know!" He shakes his head as he chirps. "But do not like it."

"No kidding."

"Boss is racist. Thinks you're human!"

A) "I am a human."
B) "That's ridiculous!"
C) "Why shouldn't I be a human?"

"Why shouldn't I be a human?" You ask slowly. Doorowl shrugs again.

"Humans bad. King says so! Get in illegally, and cause trouble! Not all, though. Sybil is good! So I say humans are good. Boss says no, though."

A) "I'm a human!"
B) "I'm not a human."
C) "King?"
D) "Sybil?"
E) "Who's your boss?"

"Sybil?" You ask.

The Doorowl smiles.

"Sybil is nice! She's a human. I think? She's king's best friend! And captain of the royal guard! She is favorite customer. Tips lots!" He trots over to a nearby shelf and pulls out a small mason jar filled about a quarter of the way with small unfamiliar coins. The jar has a large piece of white tape on it with the words 'TIPS FOR SKÜLE' written on it in what looks sort of like pink crayon. "She says never give up on dreams. She's nice! So I think humans are nice. So I don't care if you're human. I just want to let you know about the boss."

A) "Should I be leaving?"
B) "How did Sybil get here?"
C) "So are humans bad or good?"
D) Give the Doorowl some Tips for Sküle

"How did Sybil get here?" You ask.

"No one knows!" Doorowl shrugs. "But I -"

"Mylashka!" A tall man with messy dark hair, dark skin, and four arms slams the kitchen door open. "Get back here into the kitch -" He stops upon seeing you and narrows his eyes. "Stop talking to my employee, you human freak."

A) Run away, leave the store!
B) "I'm not a freak."
C) "No!"

"No!" You huff. The man scoffs.

"What do you mean no? You're distracting my employee! If you're going to cause a fuss I'll call the guard!"

"You already called the guard!" The Doorowl protests.

"Shut up, Doorowl!" The man huffs. "Listen, you get out of my cafe!"

A) Get out of his cafe.
B) Stay and eat the macaroons.
C) Flip him off.
D) Grab the Doorowl and run.
