“My datemate is a shapeshifter, and one night xe decided it would be hilarious to turn into a goose while I was taking a nap and surprise me. Xe surprised me so badly i fell off the bed and smacked my head on the bedside table. I spent a night in the hospital with a concussion. That’s not why I started hating geese, but it did not help.”
“Babe, I apologized for that D:!”
“Geese are the devil and I am an exorcist.”
“X, put the shovel down.”
“It is the instrument of my holy wrath!“
“Are you afraid of me?” the antagonist grins.
“No. As we’ve established, I am only afraid of geese.”
