So yeah, I haven't been posting much lately, partially because I don't really see much of a point in telling you all about every thing I protect Elizabeth from, and everything I have to do to put her in further danger, and partially because most of that isn't interesting enough to relate anyways. But I suppose there's no point in hiding this, so I might as well make another post while I'm here.
Elizabeth is in the hospital. In all likelihood she'll be fine, though, with luck she'll be a little fuzzy on what happened. I'm here, too, waiting for her to wake up. The doctors say it's a concussion, nothing serious but that they wanted to keep her for observation. I know I should be concerned for her, worried if she's o.k, but all I can think about is how stupid it was that she got it in the first place, and how if she had actually thought things through this wouldn't even be an issue. Instead she elected to take an action that could have major repercussions for both of us, when it would clearly have been safer to back off.
Right, you probably want the whole story. Elizabeth and I had been at the library studying, because an eldritch abomination isn't really proper motivation to ignore your schoolwork, is it? Well when we reached her apartment Phillip was leaving it. Now ignoring the fact that Phillip was being an idiot and should have told me about his plans to leave yet another creepy message in her apartment, I'd have to say that any one's first reaction to a masked man leaving your apartment late at night should be running in the opposite direction. That is, of course, even before you realize that said masked person is a servant of an incredibly powerful monster that just happens to be stalking you on a regular basis. And yet, she chose to chase him. I honestly had no idea she could even run that fast but Elizabeth almost tackled him before they reached the stairs. After barely a minute of wrestling she had gotten his mask off, and it was clear she recognized him. I'll give Phillip this: he knows how to take advantage of a shocked opponent. When she paused to wonder why he was behind the mask he kicked her legs out beneath her and threw her against the railing. The sound of her head hitting the railing was not a pleasant one, but her loss of conciseness solved a lot of short term problems. Unfortunately, Phillip, genius that he is, wasn't finished, evidently still in full on survival mode he took out a knife and was about to bring it down on her chest. Fortunately, I had moved close enough to grab him at this point and prevent that. I had to break his nose again, but I don't really consider that to be a negative thing at this point, in fact, I found it thoroughly satisfying. But at the end of it all, I sent the proxy on his merry little way and called an ambulance, and now I'm writing this on a tablet in a hospital room waiting for her to wake up. If she remembers too much I may have to have a Tall Gentleman ease her memory a little bit.
Speak of the literal dev il. Well I guess that m eans I don 't hav e to arran ge an ythin g m yself. I'll fin ish this later.
So yes, Elizabeth is fine and awake, and it's too late for me to care enough to go back and edit this post to reflect that properly. Basically she doesn't remember enough to point Phillip definitively, but it's looking like she knows "her assailant" from somewhere. I guess it's good they never actually interacted beyond being in the same class. But he's still probably going to be receiving a visit from the cops shortly enough, so there's one useless helper down the tubes. Not like he was ever really an effective proxy, I'm almost hoping they send someone competent to replace him. I'm just wanting this whole thing to be over now, it's getting tiring.
One last thing: bloggers new system for writing posts sucks, someone make them change it back.
See you around
