regretfully: “I think I’m too cruel

to lead.” He sighs. “Regardless, speaking of which…” Sighing,

“Oh boy. Grog?”

Grog: “Huh, yes?”

Percy, hesitating: “I have something to say.” He breathes

deeply, steeling himself. Stiffly resolute, but haltingly, “In a moment of

panic, I may have influenced your decision to save Taryon from the kraken. I instantly regretted it; not because of

you, Taryon, I do apologize for that. I instantly regretted it, it was a poor decision.” Hesitating, “I

fully apologize, and if you wish to

keep my glasses, I totally understand, and, at the very least…”Increasingly

rapid, remorseful, and with a hint of mild self-loathing panic, “If I have

a swift punch in the face coming, I completely understand; I’m so sorry. And I wish I could say I would never do it again, but I honestly don’t trust myself that much, but I’m really, really sorry, and if

anything had happened, I would have run into save you as best I could.”

Grog: “You look so constipated right now.”

Percy, ruefully: “I think you’re going to punch


Grog, looking confused: “How did you influence my decision?”

Percy, flinchingly, struggling for words: “It’s– I

don’t know. Sometimes I can just… I can just… be unnaturally convincing.”

Grog: “Is that a bad thing?”

Percy: “Ye– Uh, well… In the wrong hand, which are my

hands, on occasion… I felt bad; I feel bad; I feel like I was not a good– I

feel like I made a poor decision, and put you in peril, and subverted your free will. Does that

make– Uh, no.” He steeples his hands against his forehead trying to

think. “Small words.”

Matt: “You do, Grog, recall, as you guys were swimming

up to Vesrah, and you were following up to the path, you thought, ‘Why did I

save Taryon?’”

Grog: “Yeah, why did I save Taryon?”

Percy, downcast: “Because… Because I’m a jerk. That’s why you saved Taryon.

Because I can be a bad friend.”

Grog: “What does that have to do with me?”

Percy: “I just am trying to be honest with you because

I respect you, and I would hate for you to think that– Aye! Ah!” He

covers his face in his hands. Forlornly, “I’m terrible at this!”

Keyleth: “Are you alright, Percy?”

Percy, shaking his head, his tone both implying it’s obvious

and recriminating himself: “No,

I’m not alright. I’ve made some bad

decisions today,” he covers his eyes with his hand, “and I’ve terrible thoughts, and I’m so tired.”

Grog: “Tary?”

Tary: “Yes, sir?”

Grog: “Are you glad you’re alive?”

Tary: “Extremely.”

Grog, sounding satisfied: “Well, there you go.”

Percy: “How about we just say, ‘I owe you one?’”

Grog: “I owe

you one?”

Percy, pointing at himself: “I owe you one.”

Grog: “I thought you said I say, ‘I owe you one?’”

Percy: “I, no– Well, you can that too, but just know that

I owe you one. I owe you– What– It’s–”

Grog: “How would that even work? We’d just be owing

each other forever.”

Percy: “That would work– I just– Have some sea

shells,” hands them off, “and a skipping rock,” hands it off.

Grog, happily looking at them: “Ooo!”

Percy: “I feel better. That’s all I needed. That’s all

I needed, I feel better.”

Vex: “Don’t worry, Percy.”

Matt: “As Grog walks away with the skipping rock…”
