[x] Must be a ghost power. Ask Komachi if she can do anything.
"It just disappeared. Can ghosts do that?"
Komachi walks towards where you were pointing. "I guess. Did it go off to the side or anything?"
You squint. There it is again! Or? is it? No. Yes? Strange. Like it's there and not there.
"it's right in front of you!" You say, pointing again. "But it's not. And it is? I don't get it. Can you do something with your power?"
She turns to look back at you. "Maybe I could, if I knew where it was. I still don't see it. You mean, right here?"
"No, a little bit more."
She moves forward. "Here?"
"A little more?"
Another few steps, and she's right in it. Or maybe not. Is it just a little further? Maybe closer?" no, that's right. it's right there. Sort of. But it's in that spot.
"Huh. I don't see anything."
You're sure that's it. "Not even any of that low-to-the-ground cloud stuff? it's right there?"
"Nothing." She says, looking down. "All I see is the ground, and some rain, and, uh? wait."
She swings her free hand in a quick arc, snatching the ghost up by the tail. Like making it certain that it was really there. it's not doing that weird thing that it was doing before, and now, you can see it again. it's just like it was when you first saw it. With a form and everything.
She holds it up high, just under the top of her paper thing, and looks into it's bigger whiteish-red part. "What was that all about, huh?"
You move closer. After all that, you want a better look. As you do, Komachi starts nodding at the thing. "I mean the hiding in plain sight thing."
A bit of mumbling, you guess. Or maybe that was the wind. Either way, you're pretty close now. You can see the white blob shaking a bit. "You weren't doing anything like that? Well, whatever. And calm down! I don't think she's going to bite you. You're dead."
The ghost is still shaking, but not as much. "Really?" Komachi turns to you. "Hey, I think this is one of yours."
"Yeah," She says, grinning. "Eating a kid in the forest ring any bells?"
"Oh yeah," You say, suddenly getting it. it's that boy! He died, and became a ghost. So now he's here. "So, if I kill a human it comes here?"
"I thought I told you that before?" Komachi says, nodding. She turns to the ghost again. "Now, if I let you down, you aren't going to run off again are you?" More wind. Then, she sighs. "Well, I'll just have to hold on to you, then. I think she's going to stick around for a bit." Komachi turns back to you. "Jeez, I guess you really tore into him, huh?"
You nod. "He was really yummy."
Komachi smirks a little. "Well, I guess you coming down here yourself could have something to do with it, too."
[ ] Can you ask it a question? (Write-in)
[ ] Hmm? now what? Why was it important?
[ ] Well, that was fun. Suggest something else to do (write-in)
[ ] Fun, but ghosts are kind of creepy. Go somewhere else (write-in)
[ ] Something else (write-in)
Ah, right. I don't know if I mentioned this, but from now on I'm just going to assume that it's off when dealing with non-humans. Tell me if you want it otherwise.
