[X] A fairy ought to know faeries best. While you may have your doubts, trust in her plan.

***

"Very well." You accede to Cirno. "If I am to have any hope of extricating myself from this misunderstanding without harming my dear fairy, I will have to rely upon you. In this matter I am in your care."

It pains you to place all your hopes upon a young lady, but there is nothing for it. As a fairy and a girl, Cirno is far more apt to understand the heart of your dear fairy than you yourself. A shame, but an unavoidable one.

"So, you're saying you'll go with my plan, right?" Cirno frowns until you offer her a nod of confirmation. "Alright, good! If you would just say things easy-like, then..." A groan of irritation escapes the poor girl. "Never mind! I'm going, so... hurry up and get working!"

The ice fairy spares you no more words and speeds off into the forest, leaving you to your own devices. Fortune has it that you recall the way back to Miss Lorelei, a feat that you allow yourself some small amount of pride in - the madcap dash that Cirno seems so fond of would no doubt leave a man with less awareness stranded. With that issue resolved, however, you are left with a far more troubling thought:

Just how are you to convince Miss Lorelei to let you deal with this personal trouble?

---

"Absolutely not. You're not getting out of work."

With those words, your hopes of postponing your work for the day are completely dashed. Ah, cruel fortune! So like the moon, constantly changing; ever waxing, but waning! Alas, there is nothing for it; you could protest and plead with your lady, but to rally against that frown and that pout seems far too momentous a task for a lowly debtor such as yourself.

"You said you weren't going to run away from this, didn't you?"

Ah, yes, the pains of obligation. She is certainly correct, though. You promised to work for her, and as you well know, there is some divide between personal and professional life. It looks as though you will have to work out a solution to your troubles on your own time, and

You take a sip from the gourd. Suika calling it firewater was an apt enough description; it feels as if you just washed a flow of lava down your throat. How call Mystia even drink this?

Thankful that you hadn't taken more than a sip, you halfheartedly hold it out towards Alice and say a bit hoarsely, "Wanna try?"

Alice's currently-amber eyes widen as she waves a hand half-panicky to ward the gourd off as she replies, "Oh no no, I'm very bad with alcohol. Suika's drink would certainly knock me out flat."

You shrug as you hand the gourd back to Suika, who glues it to her mouth and tips onto her back. Getting up, you and Alice leave the drunkards to their fun. You walk by Reimu again, who is still working on those paper charms. Wanting to try to strike up a little conversation, you ask, "Hey Reimu, what exactly are those anyway?"

Reimu looks up at you curiously. "You're still here? Well, these are luck charms. It's hard to come by money, so I got this idea to sell some of these down in the village."

She pauses for a moment, as she taps a finger to her chin while looking at you.

"I don't suppose you'd want to do me a favor, maybe give a good first impression to the local shrine maiden who is quite capable of kicking your ass horribly if you pissed her off, perhaps?"

Reimu's way of putting her request makes you wonder what other outsiders may have done to get on her bad side. For a second, you start having second thoughts about what you promised to Tenshi. This may be tricky.

“You want me to pay you right here? Right now? You’ve got to be kidding me!”

You remain calm. The fact that you’re dealing with the city’s most influential family doesn’t bother you much. In fact your only response is to stare at the man in white overall and fedora. “Why not? It has been stated in the contract, and my client has to agree to it without any question,” you speak. “I expect you to do the same.”

“But you didn’t say that I have to prepare the money before you arrive!” the man protests. You can see his face contorting as he tries to suppress his anger, and his hands clenching the armrest in rage. “This is too much. You’re trying to extort money from me, aren’t you?”

“Perhaps.” You lean against the chair. “Sure, you can terminate the contract anytime you like, and I don’t see any problem about it. But I have to warn you.” You lean forward again, pointing the pen at his face. “I will have to charge you extra for the termination, and that might include additional payment for the time I have to waste just to get to your headquarters.”

“You insolent bit-”

“Look. I’m only trying to strike a bargain with you,” you cut him off. “And I’m the only one capable of accomplishing this task perfectly.” You keep your gaze fixed on him as you continue: “of course, you can just refuse this offer and look for somebody else, but believe me: you won’t find anyone willing to charge you this low.”

The man, whose age you guess is around his fifties, groans and shakes his head. “Alright, Kirisame, you win. How much do I have to pay?”

“Not until you tell me the purpose of hiring me,” you answer.

Today, I met the most beautiful woman.

It was love at first sight. Mad love. The kind of love you hear about in old stories. She truly is the only one for me.

I was on youkai extermination duty that day. In the forest, at that. I can ward off lesser youkai well enough, but but the forest is home to some things I'd rather not think about. And her. Suddenly, from the trees came the woman that even now holds my thoughts. I swear on my life, she must have been the youkai of beauty or I'm a fool.

How her eyes gleamed in the soft moonlight. Her song, a voice clear as glass weaving music sweet as honey. She was pristine, in sharp contrast to the dank forest around her. A true angel, complete with a set of wings. Her talons, sharpened to impeccable points, glistened as they tore into Haku. He may have been saying something, but I only remember the girl's wonderful singing. As he fell, all I could think about was how much red suited her. As she shook her hair out of her face before taking a bite of her prey, it caught the light. Such hair, a rich, silky lavendar that the girls in the village could only dream of. And on the inside, I burned with jealousy. She was enjoying him. And yet I just stood there, transfixed. When I finally found myself, she had gone, and I was alone.

I will return tomorrow to see her. Wait for me, my love! If this is madness, I pity the sane.

After clawing my way through several weeks of despair, I finally was reunited with you guys. At long last, the second installment of Bob's adventures.

I hope you enjoy it. I'm gonna go have a deeply emotional moment over this reunion, before resuming my normal cold and emotionless robotic state.
~~~~~~~~~~~
[X] Offer to help Eirin.

“It would be a pleasure to do whatever I can for you, Miss Yagokoro.” You respond, bowing slightly “I am at your disposal.” Marisa groans and buries her head in her hands “Dammit, Bob…” Eirin just smiles sweetly.



A little while later, you and Marisa (riding atop her broom, as Eirin didn’t offer you a ride, much to your dismay) land outside of a large Japanese-style mansion, surrounded by the bamboo forest which the magician recklessly navigated. As you step off, Shanghai removes herself from your head—apparently being a doll doesn’t make her immune to the anxiety accompanying one of Marisa’s hellish rides.

“Excellent. I was afraid for a minute that I had lost you.” Eirin says, before adding with a gesture to the mansion “Welcome to Eintei.”

Before you can respond, nearly a dozen rabbits—which, you note, look every bit as soft as normal rabbits—come running out of the mansion’s front gate, pursued by a girl. “No! No! Get back here and get to work, damn you!” She screams at the fleeing horde. As she nears, you manage to get a better look at her.

[x] People.

“Where are there a lot of people? I want to see a whole bunch of them.”

“People?” She asks, bending down to slip on her shoes as well. “Sure, it's a weekday morning. There'll be plenty.”

“Weekday?” You ask, never having come across the term before.

“Instead of a weekend,” She says, “But I guess you don't worry about those things, do you?”

You shake your head, still not getting it. “Nope. I'm curious though~”

“Right,” She says, cracking open the door that leads to the inside, so that you can go down and outside. “Basically we work on weekdays, while weekends are more of a break.”

You nod. “So everyone's working today?”

[X] Try flying on your own.

"Marisa, I think I'd like to try to learn how to fly under my own power." You say after a moment of thought. Marisa deflates a bit as she lowers her broom, staring at it wistfully.

"Alright then, but I'm not so good with that myself~ze." She replies as she sets her broom aside. "Hrmm, now how to go about this." She thinks aloud, scratching her head. "Lady Mima tried to teach me how to do this a long time ago, so let me see what I can remember from that." Marisa sighs, rolling her sleeves up.

"Did someone call~?" A sultry voice says, sending a chill up your spine as a glowing wisp appears before you, suddenly turning into the form of a lovely green-haired woman.

"Lady Mima!" Marisa exclaims, throwing her arms around the evil spirit. "It's good to see you again~ze."

"As with you as well." The ghost replies, accepting the witch's embrace. "Now what is it that you needed from me, my pupil?"

"Well, I was trying to teach my... bmfmmhh... to fly." Marisa explains, muffling her speech a bit as she mentions you, causing her cheeks to take on a pink tinge. Mima raises an eyebrow, leaning in toward the blushing magician.

"What was that, Marisa? Your what?" The spirit asks with a knowing grin.

Hey guys, I just wanted to check in to let you know that I'm still alive and doing rather well, actually.

Like so many other writers, I've run into a sort of dry spell in my creativity and thus the long hiatus I've had recently. Mind you, I'm still very much in love with this story and the Touhou Project series as a whole, but I've simply run out of inspiration and motivation. Also, work has picked up quite considerably and I'm getting far more hours than I used to.

I know this is all starting to sound like excuses from another lazy writer, but I need this break away from my story for a bit to let my mind freshen up and try to absorb new ideas. Anyway, we've hit autosage some time ago, so if you'd like, please do continue to comment in this thread with ideas, comments, speculation. I'll try to comment if and when I can.

Thanks for following me so far, and I hope to continue our story with this lovely witch soon.

"It's been a while, hasn't it."

I know that footstep. It's you. The time I have spent all alone has trained me to identify people by the way they walk. And it's you. You're back. This is, what, your eighth visit now? Aren't you sick of me yet?

"I'm glad to see you again."

Every year, without fail. And each year, you have come without any visible protection. I don't know if the poison I used on you when we first met had any effect, but you seem to foolishly come each and every year. Like clockwork.

"How have you been?"

What do you plan to do this time? Are you trying to win me over? You know I don't like humans; they're the ones that did this to me. You're just one person. You can't atone for the sins of many.

"There's something I have to tell you."

Ah! What are you doing, idiot! Don't hold me like that, you'll die! You've been safe because you never touched me or held me, but...

Another day is done. Another sort of cold day; but nothing too bad. You wonder how cold this feels to the others? Wriggle has been wearing bigger clothes lately; Mystia, too. You tried it once, and although it was warmer, it wasn't really worth it. Too hard to move in. Although it was fun to try for a while.

You can see the moon starting to glow, behind some trees. The sky is taking on that purple color that it does when it's getting around that time. Time to play~

...you start running. The snow is... interesting to run through. Underneath it, the ground is all hard and sort of cold. But, the snow itself is fluffy, and fights you as you move. Like running through water, but not as strong. And it makes big poofs when you jump.

Soon enough, you see it. That glowing light in the middle of the forest. It's easier to find now that there are no leaves. You've gotten really good at getting there, too. Now you're not a little off, but right on most of the time.

This area is kept kind of clean from snow. Business is slow in the winter (or so you've been told). Too cold. Too hard to get here. There's a lot of reasons. But, still, Mystia keeps the area right in front of the stand cleared. You wonder what it would be like to sit in a snow chair and eat~

As you get closer, Mystia gives you a smile (and then gets back to cooking). Wriggle gives you a nod. None of the other youkai that sometimes show up are here, or the humans. Pretty normal.

Wriggle turns to you after you take your seat. Your seat, because it's got your name on the bottom. Wriggle taught you how to write it one day, although you're not as good as she is.

“Hey.”
