Era complained, "I wasn't being a threat in my... other form... either." She used Emi's words for it, though it felt strange. "I didn't even know he was there until he started shooting at me. And then he tried to cut me with his knife. I didn't do anything." Through her distraction, Era was becoming more steady on her feet.
She turned to Emi, "Are all humans like this? I've only ever met the two. The other one didn't seem so bad...." But her experiences with them were very limited. Perhaps Penny had been some kind of fluke.
