>>33742160>You find yourself relaxing a little, and Luna grins>"We look forward to sharing our true self with thee more often! But please, thou desired to ask us questions, yes?"
"Right. I, uh, don't know where to start, now. I've been caught a bit off guard.">"We understand. We could not help but delight in the look on thy face!">Luna lays down and stretches out along the bed, watching you>Her shirt rides up to where it's barely covering past her hips>You swallow, finding your throat dry
"Can we start with... my mother?">"Aha! We begin with the richest course, eh?"
"It's just... she's been on my mind a lot lately. I've never wanted anything to do with her before. Always breathing down my neck, dragging me out like a trophy in front of her friends. But tonight I saw... she does care about me. She might be better than I thought. I want to like her. I think I can. It's just... well, there's something that's been bugging me...">"Thou doubtest thy parentage, yes?"
"I do. Octavia told me my mom adopted me. But that doesn't feel true.">"We suspect it is not."
"But how do I exist, then? My mom's dead. Mostly. How could she have had a kid?">"We do not know exactly how Spoiled contrived to bring thee into this world. She has ever shown an interest in youth, and life. And she kept strange company, some of which was done without our permission."
"Company? Like who?">"The Kine, mostly. Mortals," she explains when she sees the confusion on your face. "Kindred hold the belief that we are the closest to the darkness at the heart of the world, but many mortals delve even further than we could ever hope."
"So she made me with some sort of... dark magic?">"Perhaps. Magic, science, or the juncture where the two meet. She did come to us for our permission, surprisingly. We expect she was afraid you would be killed without my blessing."
"And you agreed? To let her make me, however she did it?"
