Oh Father Gascoine.. I had heard such tales of horror about you. Our first encounter happened by mistake. I had searched for you, t’is true, yet I avoided two strange creatures at a fire by running up some nearby steps. There was no mist to warn me (Dark Souls had seeped into my bones deep) and there you were.
I knew the trick with a quest item and although you fought well, I felt I had you on the ropes when you transformed.
It was but a distraction as you soon finished me off and made me lose over 7000 blood echoes.
I vowed to do better next time we met.
Oh and how I did…
My second attempt
I cheered and journeyed back to the Hunters Dream.
