Vadoma follows after Thulvreiss without a word, having had the same thought herself.

"Gooood," the children all respond. Endrit recognizes one of them as Bates, the boy who was injured yesterday, although he's currently looking much better.

"Endrit here thought of something exciting that we could all do together," Tolman says with a smile. He turns to the paladin. "Do you want to tell them about it?"

------------------------------------------------------------------------

The library still has a number of scattered books strewn about over the floor, but a brief investigation shows a number of books on the history of the Asylum itself. This seems like it would be a good place to start with research.

"You can run," said the sun, in the middle of the day.
"Oh, I wish someone had told me that I could run away -
Run away, run away, run away, run away,
To a far and a peaceful land."

"You can run away," said the sunset's light,
And it set its horizon in a hard flat line.
"It's okay, it's okay, it's okay, and you'll find
A far and a sunless land.
A far and a sunless land."

And the night rolls over and it makes me sick,
It's a trick, it's a trick, it's a trick, it's a trick.
And I wish someone had told me that I could run away
To a far and a sunless land.

Endrit nods, finding a spot to take a seat. "I heard you all were getting a little tired of folding paper animals, so I'd come tell a story," he explains, folding his hands together and smiling. "It'll be a real gripping tale," assuming I can remember an adequate one, the bearded man adds mentally, "and then we can play out your favorite scenes from there. What kinds of stories do you all like?"

[Perform Oratory: 22]

The three kids seem interested in this idea, and their thoughts on a good story fortunately does bring something suitable to mind for Endrit. When he has the idea firmly in his mind, he begins weaving the tale, a story with a good balance of drama and action, keeping his youthful audience captivated. He nearly chuckles at a few moments of surprised and concerned reactions, but doesn't slip out of his storyteller mode until the end.

Junmai is similarly captivated, having switched from a stand-offish lean against the far well to an enraptured cross-legged position, leaning in on his haunches as he enthuses alongside the children.

Thulvreiss spots Vadoma on the way to the library and comments to her, "We should coordinate and share our research to be more efficient."

"As long as we're not reading the same books, things should be fine, yes?" Vadoma asks. "We can share what we've read after."

"Some books may overlap in content - I will peruse the material on anything religious they may have, I would like to learn more about the enemy's obsession," Thulvreiss offers.

"I'll stay away from those books for now, then," Vadoma replies.

After Endrit is done with his story, the children all clap excitedly. Tolman claps as well, smiling. "That was an excellent story. Did you come up with it now, or was it something you remembered?"

As the children are excitedly chattering and paying the men no mind, Endrit answers candidly. "Well, pieces of it were remembered. I did need to improvise to string it together, but that seems to have served just fine."

Junmai whistles. ”I knew there was something special about you, Ch— Endrit,” the ronin earnestly answers. ”The way you described that fight made me feel just like I was there! It was unreal!”

"Thank you," Endrit answers with a chuckle. "Most of the fight, truthfully, was a part I could remember. I couldn't quite recall how it ended, though, so I thought it would be more exciting if the heroes did defeat the dragon after all."

”It’s good to give those kids a happy story in this place. This place is... honestly, I’m a little shaken up by it. Everything seems to have a life of its own after it should be good and dead.”

"There's a lot going on out there that I'm still having trouble coming to terms with," Tolman agrees. "It's hard, especially for the kids. Maeve is constantly asking to go outside and play, but obviously we can't do that. Bates is still recovering from the trauma of his injuries. Brenton's brother hasn't been seen since the uprising happened..." He sighs. "The most I've been able to do is keep them focused on other things, but it's getting more difficult every day."

Endrit nods, face solemn. "I can't imagine being in their position during all this. I hope we're able to find some clarity soon."

"I hope so too." Tolman smiles. "If anyone has a shot at it, it's probably you all, right? It's all we can do to hang out around here and keep everyone safe, but you five went out into the asylum proper and came back in one piece. That's more than most of us can say."

"I'm hopeful that we'll get this thing done before too long," Junmai responds. "We haven't met too much out there we couldn't handle yet, that's for sure at least."

"I'm glad to hear that," Tolman says.

Meanwhile, in the background, the kids have begun re-enacting the story to the best of their abilities, with Brenton playing the hero while Maeve plays the dragon. Bates is mainly sitting back and watching, but he still looks entertained.

Junmai goes to join the children in play, but Endrit hangs back to speak further with Tolman. "So, do you mind if I ask what brought you to this place?" he asks. "Candidly, I'm curious as to why there are children here as well, but I'm not sure what context you may have for that."

Junmai first takes the role of steward, observing the children and making sure they don’t hit their heads or anything, but soon grows bored. He listens quietly to the children at play, idly rehearsing stances for bladework in his head, and waiting for a chance to inject himself into the talk.

"I was a nurse here," Tolman says. "I worked with some of the patients, using art to help them put their minds at ease a bit. As for the children..." He glances over to the kids. "Bates suffers from seizures, although his medications help a lot with that. Brenton and his brother both suffer from trauma after the loss of their parents. I don't know as much about Maeve's reasons for being admitted, other than it's also some form of trauma, but she's repressed a lot of what's happened to her - both in her past, and what's happened most recently." He smiles. "In short, they're here because they need help. So, even in light of what's happening, I'm going to try to help them. No matter what it takes."
