  54. >do you think I could stay with you for the night? I'm really sorry but I don't want to be in my room alone tonight.
  55.  
  56. >not really thinking about it you agree and offer him a hand, I takes him nearly five minutes to stedy himself and start walking with you

  67.  
  68. >you make it rushing him past the abandoned RA desk and up to your room
  69.  
  70. you practically sprint into your room silently praying no one saw you. You shut the door as quietly as you can before turning to check on your cold companion.
  71.  
  72. >He's already looking better in the heated space you assume this means hes cold blodded and judging by the worried look on his face he must be thinking the same thing
  73.  
  74. >Thank you so much man, I don't know what I would have done without you I hope I'm not ruining your night or anything
  75.  
  76. >you tell him its all good and offer him some snacks while you go clean up and think about what to do next.

  82. >after nudging him a few times you realize he's definitely out cold. With a huff you just barely manage to lift the poor kid into your bed.
  83.  
  84. >you eye him up and down one last time and it really looks like he's not human. the purple scales cover his whole body, his arms and legs end in large leathery looking paws tipped with long black claws.

  86. >you briefly wonder if this was all some trick to eat you while you slept but you quickly push those thoughts aside
  87.
