Originally posted on The Haunting of Kraken Moor:
Despite my headache, I reported for duty at 7 AM as expected. Mrs. Cotts insisted I take a day for bed rest, but even though I had survived the night without dreaming of the marble wolfman, I had no desire to do anything that would increase the immediate likelihood of he and I coming into contact. There was something about this house that affected dreams in ways I did not understand. I know I have a tendancy tendency to act sharply and passionately at a moment’s notice, and so I have developed a counter tendency to educate myself in quieter moments. Given that there are mysterious events inside Kraken Moor, it seems inevitable that I shall eventually act hotly, and thus I need to be prepared for that occurrence.
Still, I have been hired to work and I do not intend to shirk my duties.
The three members of staff who stood in her office with me rolled their figurative eyes at Mrs. Cotts’ declaration that I rest for the day, and so I removed myself to the hallway. I returned to the office after my three fellow workers left, where I objected to being ordered to bed.
