"I know, but it's only for a little while. Trust me, you don't wanna run into anything around here. There's a lot of... Painful things to run into." Moon attempted again and the butcher simply shook his head and walked over to her. "Here. When you're skinning, it helps when you cut a smooth and deeper slit to cut them apart, like so. After that don't clutch the skin in a tight ball with your fist. Carefully place a finger between the fat and the skin, and slide it along and slowly life with the tips of your fingers. It comes off a lot easier than you'd think. Try to do it right this time." Nodding, Moon gave it her best shot and followed the butchers instructions. Wait, shouldn't they know his name by now? Why hadn't he introduced himself? Oh well, not like it was that important anyway. Maybe calling him Butch will work well enough. After learning how to be more forgiving to the hide, just like Butch had said, it came apart a lot easier. It was so mesmerizing. And before she knew it, the boar was perfectly skinned. Well... Almost. She messed up around the legs, but that was a whole different technique she hadn't figured out. "So, Ilya, do you remember anything of how you ended up in the city? What was your journey like?"
