Hmmmm.... a pain over his heart? Contract preventing the truth? Choose your words carefully my Beast.....

Beast is having a beastly thought.

Getting phantom pain where your heart should be, Beast?

I have a sudden, upsetting suspicion - but this may not be a good time to say what it is. How are *you* feeling, Beauty?
MsMegan 22nd Apr 12:19 PM, 2014
I am deeply curious!
Paula Richey 22nd Apr 12:28 PM, 2014
It has to do with who/what these other guests are, where they are headed, and exactly how much of a ghost story this is.
Maggie 23rd Apr 2:24 AM, 2014
Nah... I think he just ate them. What if he was referring to the deer he caught earlier as one of his "guests"?

By the way, MsMegan, I'm your newest follower! I've been catching up on the story and loooove it, but this is the first time I've commented.
MsMegan 23rd Apr 10:32 PM, 2014
Yay! Welcome aboard!
Paula Richey 23rd Apr 5:15 PM, 2014
Ha! I don't think so... But neither do I think he's running a charming little B&B (...&B)

Ticking through the usual suspects--

"I'll tell you when you're older/ later/ when the time is right."
"You won't understand/ like it."
"You don't want to know."
"I can't tell you."

Again, Beauty... remember his words. He is an Ambassador and there was a contract. :P

(Finally, got my computer working again after three days!)

My money's on his contract reminding him what he may and may not tell...

Oh, dear. ("Stay cool, Beast, stay cool. Keep it casual. And vague. And maybe if you look super-absorbed by your furry lapels, she'll drop the subject...yeah.")
MsMegan 30th Apr 3:22 PM, 2014
I wish there were a "like" button on this comment setup. Becasue like.

:D (Maybe if we write in? Or is this stuff open source? Not that I know any coders to sic on it, know.)

I have to remember that Beauty is under the impression that the Beast is in control of everything here, including their contract. I may not think so, but Beauty doesn't have quite as much information as we do at this point. The Beast almost looks like he's about to explain things to her...but then he has to stop due to a pain in his heart? Oh dear, just what did that enchantment involve? What would happen to him if he told her everything...? As a random note, he looks so majestic in the fifth panel. And...hmm, I guess she's one of the few who have stayed for such a long time. I kind of wonder what the stories might have been for the other ones...?

Hmmm.....upon rereading, I can't help but wonder if him putting a hand to his chest is a reference to what he had said before: "...a man with no heart is a beast"
Perhaps I'm simply reading too much into the action, though. I do that sometimes.
