    Charlotte didn't like that it was dodging her questions. However, it was right. There wasn't any time to have a discussion on this. "How can I trust you'd stay in the city?" It was a fair question. She couldn't trust it at all. More footsteps in the distance made her tense. She was going regret doing this, but she reached in her shirt and pulled out a leather with a rectangular token.

    "Take this," she said, offering it to the gargoyle. "If you get stuck again, break the token. It will transport you to a safe place. Also know that I can track you with it. If you take one step out of the city, I will hunt you down." Charlotte scowled. These tokens were expensive. She didn't have much choice, though. With one last look at the creature, she slipped back into the shadows.

    "I'm cursed to stay in this forsaken city," Dante answered. As the woman handed him a strange token, Dante stared blankly at it and gripped it with his enlarged hand. He nodded, understanding the promise he had made with her. He gazed at the tinier person one last time before he dove off the side of the building, vanishing into the night before Charlotte can track him. And by the time the second wave of first responders arrived, neither of the two could be found.

    The following dawn, Dante had snuck himself into an abandoned shop where he had been tending his wounds all night with whatever gauss and bandages he could scavenge. By the first peek of sunlight, the gargoyle had shapeshifted back into human, the wounds appearing more prominent in this form. The silver lines had cut him deep, and it would take a professional practitioner to properly heal him, ones that were accustomed to healing... non-humans. Dante winced in pain as he had manually stitched his wounds together, bits of blood continuing to ooze through. However for now, it was better than before. Dante was finally able to relax, leaning back on a pile of rubble and trash, but while his body relaxed, his mind could not escape the thought of the woman, the mysterious woman who had saved him.

    Dante reached into his pocket and dug out the token she had given him, inspecting it thoroughly. He had never seen tokens of such kind, even for a creature that had lived for countless years. He squinted in the attempt to read the engravings on it.

    Charlotte needed to get another token. It wasn't a complete loss, however. Being able to keep an eye on the gargoyle was a benefit. She'd visit a broker tomorrow. It was late in the evening. Perhaps she should wait for Hierophant and ask them questions about what was going on.

    She stepped into a condo building. This one was on the pricier side of the city. She walked up to the front desk and looked at the night doorman. He looked up at her expectantly. "What a night," she said, "too bad the moon wasn't shining." The doorman slid a key fob to her with a nod. Certain keywords would let others know why she was here. It was how several safehouses worked.

    Charlotte headed to the elevators and pushed the up button. After getting inside the condo, she closed the curtains and checked the locks. She messaged a number and waited. Her next steps would have to be cautious.
