10: …Even In Fetters
Aun: It was stupid of me to sneak up on you like that! I’m very sorry!
Chax (thinks): It was not an attack posture... And the sharp end of the stick was pointing towards him.
(Chax enters a dialogue with the voice in his head.):
He’s a confirmed foe! I must strike now!
He probably just wanted his stupid rod back.
All that doubt brings is useless confusion!
The craisht, untempered, brought pain & humiliation.
And triumph! Sweet taste of blood!
Aun is not food. He helped me when he could have slain me easily. How shameful to kill one who brings aid!
I can slay him. Right now I just don’t want to.
I can stop this. Right now I just don’t want to.
(Aun remains in the tree, watching Chax thinking and shivering.)
Aun (thinks): He’s just standing there and twitching! Maybe his brain is broken. Now’s my chance to run!
Chax (deeply conflicted): Aun. Hold... Very... Still.
Chax leaps at Aun in the tree.
Aun (screams): Naiiiii!
