"Over here," You answer.
You hear the sound of Mystia shuffling through the woods, leaves crunching and twigs snapping underneath her feet. Peeking out, she wasn't that far away. Soon she's near you, though you can't read the expression on her face. Although, you wonder why she called to you. Did she lose?
"Hey, I lost," She says, her voice glum. "That spot's really good."
Lost. That means that you win, which is good. "So, now what? Do we still hide again? ...no, there's a penalty," You add, speaking more to yourself. "Right?"
Mystia sighs in response. You wonder just how grave this penalty is; it really didn't seem like much. "Haaa... well, lets go back. I'll have to remember this spot."
You nod, and squeeze your way out of the trunk. Mystia leads the way back to her stand, where Wriggle and Rumia are waiting. They're both grinning.
"Hey, good job, Phobe!" Wriggle says, laughing. "I was hoping someone would lose. The penalty tonight was too good to go to waste."
Mystia sighs again. "So, we're going through with it?"
Wriggle nods. "Definitely. Should we get on our way, then?"
"Let me lock up a few things first," Mystia says, pointing to the shack. "Gotta worry about the thieves, you know?"
Wriggle sighs, but motions for her to continue. "Sure, go on."
Locking up a few things involves turning a key in many drawers and iron boxes, and lowering the canvas cover that shelters the seats from things like rain or heavy sun, you'd assume. Soon, the four of you are airborne, flying high above the forest towards a clearing in the distance. There's a bit of light coming from it. The trip only takes a few minutes.
Upon arrival, you notice that there's a building in the middle of the clearing. You get an uneasy feeling from it, like something doesn't want you here. It's the same feeling that you got from that one man earlier today.
"I'm not sure about this," Mystia says, her voice showcasing a bit of that fear that those humans felt earlier. "What if she wakes up?"
"Don't wake her up," Wriggle says, grinning a mischievous grin. "Well, unless you want to get blasted."
"Blasted?" You ask, curious. This sounds kind of exciting. "Is this dangerous?"
Mystia shivers a bit. "Really dangerous..."
"Come on, you're a youkai," Wriggle says, slapping Mystia on the back. "You should be fearless! Now, go in there and get those sleeves! The other stuff, too!"
"Good luck~? Rumia adds, also giving her a pat on the back.
Mystia creeps up to the building, slowly, and slides one of the doors open. She vanishes inside the darkness that makes up most of the building.
"Hmm, we should probably leave," Wriggle says, looking back to the forest. "If she does wake Reimu up, we don't want to be around."
"I'm tired, anyway," Rumia says, shrugging. "Can we play tomorrow?"
Wriggle gives her a thumbs up. "Sure thing, Rumi. Try to think of a good game to play, ok?"
And with that, she takes to the air and flies away. Wriggle turns to you. "So, did you have fun? I'm going to go take a nap, too."
"Yep." You say, nodding. "Tonight was fun."
"That's good. We're usually at the same spot, so show up tomorrow night if you want."
Wriggle, too, takes off into the air, leaving you on the edge of the clearing that surrounds the building Mystia went into. You almost want to stick around, but...
...commotion, from inside. Definitely something being broken, but you don't know what. It almost sounds like wood. Also, there's some shouting coming from inside. Now you really want to stick around. This is exciting. What's going on? You won't know if you don't go check it out. But, there is still that uneasy feeling...
[ ] Enter the building, try to see what's going on.
[ ] Find a good spot to hide, and watch from there.
[ ] Leave. Last time you felt uneasy, you lost an arm.
