Ahh, yes in that you are very right, but see this is what happened… she told me that she was taking it with her. There are 4 witnesses to the fact that she told me that. Would she have been honest with me in the moment and said that she was just not comfortable leaving it with me, I would have been perfectly fine with that. It is not my Vortex, it belongs to the Earthbound. My concern was that she said she was taking it with her, not to whom she was leaving it.
For someone who was so adamant about honesty among each other, she lied right there to me. Perhaps the warning to town should be to be honest with one another and things like this should not be an issue.
