After last year, Mercury section should be on rock solid ground together. We’re not. This time, it’s not Mateo’s fault.
Pledging with Feles was the only way to stop him from wreaking fatal havoc in the name of blind vengeance. My friends fear me now, and I don’t blame them.
I’m the only one who knows Feles had a good reason.
We unwittingly sent him to a hellscape a year ago. He’s only a kitten. Also a prickly, sour, pessimist who argues constantly with my other pledges. Decompressing Feles from his past burdens might just be impossible. That hasn’t stopped me before.
But how do I save the cat slowly enough to avoid giving us both a case of the bends?
