Back from the dead, and boy, do I feel good! <cackle>
You've certainly got potential, my boy. And your little miss, though she got squeamish towards the end there. Such an enlightened sense of humor though. Imagine if you two crazy kids made some babies! I'd be more than happy to take them under my wing, show them some ropes...
Speaking of, did you enjoy our riddle session, Lady of Shade? I must admit the riddle you left me with as I sat dying still puzzles me... sweet prince? Moi? I didn't know you cared, but I prefer not to be called such again. I really don't think it's appropriate, seeing as you and Zach are getting on so well.
Now I must be off to break in this new body of mine. The former owner was no slouch in physical fitness, but I have a very strict regimen to which I subject any new host. Unless Thuggee makes contact and gives me other orders, you may not hear much from me for a few weeks.
I know you must feel such an unbearable sense of loss! But never fear, I will return to your side forthwith.
