"Well, here we are!" She turns to you, putting her hands proudly on her hips with a toothy grin.
You stop short and set down your bags, crabdad just behind you. "Terezi," you say, raising an eyebrow as you look around the massive blue tree trunks, "there's nothing here." You didn't think she was this blind with her other senses.
She only smirks at you and points upwards. Your gaze follows the indicated direction and you gape for a few moments at the massive tree hive complex. The tealblood walks to the nearest trunk and yanks on a rope tied to one of the lower branches. A rope ladder unfurls from the deck above and drops a foot from where you stand.
Your lusus skrees and climbs the trunk behind you instead. Terezi gestures to the ladder and bows mockingly. "After you, dear partner."

I'm very grateful to him, since he's probably the only reason I haven't been culled yet considering my uh, disability. Luckily it doesn't affect my weapon form though!
