It was far from the first clue that something was wrong. But it was only after what I experienced during my first Field Training mission that I started noticing those little red flags.
When I have no body of my own to measure it with, time moves both too slowly and too quickly. For Tess, it’s only been a few years. For me, it’s been yet another short eternity.
Why? Why oh why oh WHY a demon-eater, of all things?! I mean, at least you’re an anima, but I’d’ almost have preferred you be a florus – or even a symbi! Why, at least then I wouldn’t have had to put up with such – such…!
