And the second part to Rokag’s leave. You know, despite this being like, 10k words long, it felt ridiculously quick to write. I had a lot of fun with it.
Read part one here.

It took a few hours, but Rokag eventually calmed down and went to work at her daily duties. Finn and Agrat also went to their own chores, and the three mostly stayed apart from each other until that evening. When she returned home for the night, Agrat and Finn were already sitting in the living room, next to each other on the couch. She sat across from them in a chair.
“So?” she said. Agrat scratched his head and Finn opened his palms.
“So y’ know—”
They glanced at each other and Agrat motioned for Finn to continue.
“Things haven’t always been easy for us,” he said. “I’m guessing you already know that we’ve done our fair share of wandering.”
“Right,” Rokag said. “Of course you did, since you traveled all th’ way here.”
“And it goes without saying that things get dangerous when you don’t really have a permanent home,” Finn said. “You know we moved here for a better life, since that wasn’t possible in Ettinsmoor. We didn’t get to actually settle down and stop for some time, and during that time we had some… difficult encounters.” She leaned sideways in the chair and rested her cheek against her knuckles.
“Well, just how difficult?” she said.
