Today I killed a dragon; then I ate his soul. It’s complicated. But now I can get people away from me by yelling at them and that’s pretty cool. The Jarl was so happy I saved the town he gave me a lot of stuff I can’t carry. Then he gave me a girl to help carry it, which was sweet, but now I have a girl following me around.
She seems to have a bit of a chip on her shoulder though. It’s hardly my fault the Jarl gave her to me. I tried to tell her I wasn’t comfortable owning her, but she was welcome to stay as a friend of her own free will – but the game wouldn’t let me express that properly.
She keeps asking how she can help so I asked her to carry some things for me to help her feel useful, because I know *I* like to feel useful, but she got snippy with me about it:
*sigh* “I’m sworn to carry your burdens…”
Maybe I’ll trade her for a dog. Dogs are never sarcastic about helping. No one’s ever given me a girl before.
It’s been a few days and Lydia (the girl) is still following me around and being snarky about carrying things. I’m trying to figure out if I need to feed her and make sure she sleeps or if she takes care of herself.
Can she die? What happens if I hit her? If I run into her she says “ouch” so I know she can feel…
It seems weird to just be all “okay… I’m going to bed… are you just going to stand there and stare at me all night…?”
Apparently I can tell her to wait places and she will. Can I leave her in the middle of nowhere? That seems dangerous. Shouldn’t I put her somewhere safe??
