2022.01.21 01:34 c0mlink Cowboy in an Isekai? PT38
8 Days after hero summoning The dryad lake between capital and Aperta Suko the Pharmacist.
Did you ever look at a plant and wonder if it had anything to say? A tree that could spin you tails of the ages, or a fern that wanted to sing about how the sun felt. But no, they see everything, feel everything, and can express things only in being what they are. Suko now was sure if they could talk they would both have lots to say, and no need to take a breath to say it. In fact, it was probably best plants didn’t talk. Otherwise, they would never stop once they had an audience.
Once he was pulled below water he was sure that it would be the end of him but on the contrary, he was well taken care of. Once out of the grasp of the surface he had struggled for a good 30 seconds while his lungs filled with water. But his beautiful captor didn’t seem to notice as he was pulled ever deeper. Then the odd thing happened or didn’t happen to be exact. Instead of drowning he simply seemed heavier once he was filled with water instead of air.
That was two days ago now. For the entire time, he was treated to a guided tour of the bottom of the lake. Submerged islands and valleys made for unique sights that Suko could have barely imagined. But after the first 6 hours, everything seemed to blur together.
He didn’t actually mind though, her voice rang out beautifully while they were submerged in water. Wrapping around him in all the right ways. And even though she seemed to be missing the most important girl parts, she was attractive in the most embarrassing way. He found himself following her enchanting form and listening with no regard for time.
“This is the last part of my domain and where I spend the most time. I actually made it by watching a human a long time ago. They piled stone high and made a cave out of small rocks that weren’t there before. My parents never approved of me copying the other-worlds but they always do such interesting things that it's hard to think of anything new once you watch them.”
She paused at this for the first time in a while. Looking back at him still somewhat struggling to keep up with her pace. He had gotten faster over the past couple of days but she could and often did dance circles in the water around him as she talked on.
“I’m so sorry. You must have been captured by that awful druid that was a human, they covered you in rags and probably made you grow innocent plants for them to devour. Here I am praising them when you must hate them more than any other.” She floated close and wrapped Suko in a tender hug. He tried to think of what exactly his back story was supposed to be, but the springy orbs pressing into him made all other thoughts flee.
“Come with me forest boy we can sit in the sun atop my tower and you can tell me your story. It will be wonderful to hear a new story. I haven’t had company since my sister visited forty or so years ago. I’m sure you want to hear the rest of mine but I just can’t wait to hear all about your life!” She released him and continued swimming towards the center of the lake.
He could probably say that he was a newborn dryad, or that he was captured as a baby…. But he didn’t actually know how dryads worked except what he had gathered from her talking.
First of all, she was about 90 years old and the equivalent of about 19 or 20 in dryad life spans. They each had domains that overlapped lightly on the edges with family and close friends. Inside their domain, they had a vague sense of everything that was going on and that is how she found him. They and now he too could make any plant grow to their whims but only did it in defense or to aid their domain during droughts or famine. They hated the system for some reason and thought that all humans were from another world not just heroes.
If he used [Encyclopedia Britannica] then he could probably get more information, but all his paper was soaked and useless. Even his gun diagram was caput. Not to mention it only lasted ten minutes and she probably expected him to talk for hours if not days about his life.
They reached the top of a stone tower that stretched into the depths of the lake. Farther than Suko could see and covered in all kinds of subterranean plant life. The top was flat and clean with light hitting it through the surface and painting the tower with shifting murals. Schools of fish danced in and around the shadows nibbling at the plants or chasing each other.
They settled onto the top of the tower as Vinea continued to explain all about the tower and where she got the idea and the materials. How many failures were down at the bottom of the lake and why it was so tall. She was proud of her life and everything she did. Suko envied her a little, but she had 90 years to work on it while he barely had 15. He would get there.
As she laid down on the tower he thought he saw little roots stretch from all over her in between the stones. He sat cross-legged instead, which gave him an amazing view of not only the surroundings but also his host.
“When I was young my parents died. Before I really knew what was going on.” It was probably best to tell his story as vague as possible, maybe he could get off with a short story if he just didn’t have enough details to tell.
Vinea just kept looking at the light filtering through the top of the lake. Suko was beginning to understand that time worked differently as a dryad. No dinner or lunchtime, just basking in the light. No pressure to succeed fast or make an impact so quickly, taking days or weeks to do tasks that gave you the barest of returns.
“once they died I found myself being forced to do things I really didn’t want to do. Chasing the affection of people who only wanted me to support them in their old age. I was terrible at all of it though. Studying, sports and no one liked me because I was so awkward. It was not all bad though, I worked hard and was able to make small improvements. But it was never fast enough.” Suko smiled a little at this. If he was to stay a dryad then he would have lots more time to make improvements.
“I met someone I hated for a long time. Once we were brought here though someone told me that brothers should stick together. At the time I think he mistook us for actual brothers. But after a few days of not hating him, I realized that we are kind of brothers. We were the same in just trying to find something to define ourselves. He found him in making others feel bad. I just didn’t belong anywhere though, made me easy to pick on.”
“You found what defines you forest boy.” Vinea interrupted.
“You define yourself even now with self-pity and hate. I can see your soul trying to break free of it.”
She sat up and looked him in the eye, the embers of anger dying in him as he saw her face. Not the accusation or demand that he fix it. A sad beauty that he imagined would be crying if they were not already underwater. The weirdness of that thought didn’t elude him either. He was quite literally bearing his soul to a tree woman on a tower underwater in a fantasy world.
He was reminded of the last time someone really looked at him. Nick was still out there, captured or killed. Either way, he was held hostage by the threat on Tsuko and Miku’s life. Suko might be the only one that could help them now that they think he is dead. More people piling more unrealistic expectations on him with no regard for what he….
“Yeah, I guess your right” Suko caught the thought before he started blaming other people for what he thought he should do.
“You did something amazing escaping the humans. But they still have a hold on your mind. A dryad doesn’t take care of their domain because it counts on them silly. We do it because we want to.” She waved her hand in the water and fell back onto the stone. Despite himself, he couldn’t help watching her springy chest float freely in the slight current.
He probably did the thing where he zoned out in a planty way thinking about what she said and enjoying the view. By the time he felt the need to go on, he found they had been making eye contact for more than a few minutes. She still held a gentle smile though, dryads had lots of patience, and lots of time to think.
“I was chased through the woods for a little under two days before I got here. While floating I made up my mind to become a better person for me. But after listening to you for a while I think that is too idealistic of a goal. I want to… to see Nick again safe, and to get my brother out of danger. A domain sounds like fun to set up, and then…”
“Those sound like goals you could do. You are welcome to stay here for a few years though, and the plains to the north are open if you want to look that way for a domain.” A few years? Wow, they really did operate on a different clock, and although a nice long rest does sound nice he should probably not push his goals out that far.
“By the way who is Nick? You are not very good at telling stories, his is the only name you used the whole time. Is he important to you?”

2022.01.21 01:34 Jacktheripper5 Can I sue my employer for wrongful termination due to my disability.
Can I sue my employer for wrongful termination due to my disability. I suffer from Chronic IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) which causes me to have painful constipation and have always had it. My employer has been getting mad at me because I have taken a lot of long lunches we are only allowed to take 30 minute lunches but I have been taking 40 minute lunches because of my IBS and it gets so bad that it causes bile to build up and if I can't go poop it causes me to vomit up bile that's why I take 40 minute lunches. Because if my constipation builds up I have to go to the bathroom immediately and cannot clock back in from lunch until I'm done. They also have an ADA letter for my disability and know about my disability and yet are trying to get rid of me because of my long lunches. It even says on my ADA that I need extra time to go to the bathroom. Can I sue my employer if they terminate me regarding my long lunches. I am also autistic.

2022.01.21 01:34 bestfronds Hair algae on newly planted Monte Carlo. Start over or grow in and then eradicate algae?
Option 1: remove all MC, spend $$ on brand new MC in the form of tissue cultures
Option 2: let MC grow in as it’s currently still doing pretty well, then blackout to kill the algae
Option 3: ???
Note: this is submersed growth MC that wasn’t getting enough light or CO2 previously, so not expecting any melt.
