Re: louis d/ren s
But it is an excuse, Ren. More than being uncomfortable, it can be extremely dangerous. People in this town treat admissions of magic and the supernatural as if they have no weight anymore. I worry they've all become complacent. The world still would prefer not to acknowledge the strangeness that lurks outside the door. There are places that people like us go, and from which they never come out.
I trusted you, but without knowing you had been through something similar, I could have no expectation of how you might react. I'm sure I would have told you eventually, but I was afraid. That comes from my own experiences in the past, and had nothing to do with you.
