[32] "So, apparently I'm water-powered."
[32] "Ohh, by the way? Some redhead tried to murderize me and/or seduce me."

— - — - —

Picking it up, I found it to be both as soft as a newborn cake's butt and as goddamned cold as ice. Was a weird combo, to be honest. Was like it was somehow just pulled fresh from an oven that cooks by cooling somehow. Was left scratching my head more than a little over it, to be honest. Still, I got to relieving it of its papery threads, went about laying it bare before me. Au monchere. ...Or however you say it. Still, I'm being a bit silly now, so I figured I'd take a bite of the thing, finding an even greater shock to the system within.

The hell! The inside was piping hot!

Cold on the outside, hot on the inside and with fluffy, pink icing in a decoratively set pile on top. In the middle of all that, it was topped with further icing saying, 'BOO!' nestled into a neat little alcove among that pink. Although, that was more conjecture, 'cause I kiiiinda turned it into '300!' when I gave it a nibble. Proooobably should read cakey messages before I dig in, but y'know, hindsight still ain't something I have up front. Be kinda weird if I did, 'cause that'd be crotch sight or somethin' weird like that. Then again, she could just really freaking like Spartans, but I had a feeling it was nothing of the sort.

Lunch lady must have some sorta weird magical oven, though. For all its strangeness, and for all of its chilliness, the little cupcake was packed with enough sugar to make it considerable as some sorta confectionary A-bomb. S-bomb? I'd go with F-bomb if I could think up a good word for it. ...Fructose? Think that's somethin' sugary, but I'm not great with crap like that. I just know it's used a heck of a lot on commercials, to be honest.

Needless to say, it was delicious, though. Probably gonna spit out half my teeth later, but credit where credit was due and all that.

"Well, wherever it came from, it's cold as ice and hot as all get out."

Nitori gave me an odd look, asking, "What, like it was dipped in liquid nitrogen only long enough to freeze the outside?"

And then the ginger railgun added, "Maybe it was cooked in an icebox!"

Nitori and me just stared at her while she smiled. Then we kinda looked to each other, both knowing that the other was wanting to apply some lipsmack.

Then we just kinda went on with our eating, 'cause seriously, that was just dumb. Assuming that wasn't Nitori getting stupid ideas. I mean, if she can make some sorta water jetpack, I could only imagine what her better stuff is. Kinda annoying that she kept it away from me for so long, honestly. Seriously! So what if she eats souls?

Freaking. Jetpack.

Still, with a nibble of the creamy dessert washed down with some milk, I turned my eyes to the soup. From a distance, it kinda looked like a combination of grapejuice and extremely deadly poison. The purple steam wasn't helping its case. I swear, if my chopstick test fails this time, I'd not be even a little surprised. Hell, if it didn't fail? I'd be pretty dang disappointed, to be honest. So, I deployed a trusty chopstick I snagged while I wasn't looking and gave it a dipping.

Pulling it out, the stick was fine. Maybe as purple as the soup, but definitely fine. Note to self: keep away from literally everything but my mouth. Still, to say that I was disappointed was it cutting a bit short, as I felt a little more than that. I mean, did I think that food that'd kill me would be perfectly fitting and kinda cool? Hell yeah! Did I wanna actually have to eat it? Yeaaaah, how 'bout no.

Giving Nitori's plate a peek, I saw it as vegetarian as I expected. Sure, I'd be lying if I said it was a pile of cucumbers and butt balls, but a more civilized dish of cucumbers was hardly much different.

The single pickle off to the side colored me as odd, however. Either she ate the rest, or she only got one. Still, assuming souls aren't pickles and veggies, her plate was free of anything suspicious save for my scrutiny. Although, if veggies were souls? Hah! Who's laughing now, vegetarians? Me, that's who!

"Why are you laughing...?" Whoops. Seems I drew the attention of the entire cafeteria with that.

Even if the population was next to zip. Y'know, as unpopulated as it is, odd that the lunch lady stays. I mean, it's what, goin' on 11? If there's a curfew, I'd bet that'd be waaaay back. If anything, maybe she should give us spankings or whatever it is they do around here. Actually, scratch that; I didn't wanna die a baby's death.

"Ahh, just thought of a funny joke about veggies. You'd probably not like it so much, though." Nitori just rolled her eyes, probably appreciating that bit of warning.

Still, was time to get serious. The soup needed eating, and I had the spoon for the job. Testing it against the grape koolaid soup, I found it, as well, was dyed purple. Well, alrighty. Guess I'm gettin' some lipstick for a bit, aren't I? Well, down the hatch and all that!

...What? It... it tastes like hot grape soda, kinda? But maybe a bit peppery, too? Weirdly tasty, though, but still. Why. Why would anyone make this. Ever. I mean, that just seems disrespectful to soup, in my book. At least have it be flat. Kinda felt carbonated for crying out loud! Even with hints of chicken and—

Wait, it has noodles. What?? Just, like... seriously. Grape soda soba. What the heck even.

I just gulped it down, trying to not think about it too much, and focused instead on the chewy noodles and chocolatey milk and sugary cupcake and not the grape.

Not the grape at all.

My job of ignoring that bit done, it seemed as good of a time as any to say my farewells. "Anyways, see ya later, Railgun."

That got a grin and a half outta her. Cha-ching! "See ya later, Shortie~"

"We're the same height, ain't we?" I mean, I could see it if she were Unzan or Ko, but...

"And? Same shortness." Had me there.

Gave her a roll of the eyes for it. "Yeah, yeah. See ya, Tiny."

"Bitsy."

"Itsy."

"Micro."

"Nano."

Before ol' Nano could get another nickname volley off, Nitori interrupted, "Will you two stop that?" She started it! ...Sorta. "See you tomorrow, Suika." So it was Suika!

Suika shot back, "Yeah, you two as well." Guess we have gym again tomorrow? Wasn't paying much attention to that sorta stuff.

Gave her a wave and and the lunch lady a thumbs up as we headed off. Which was to say that Nitori was just about draggin' me. Lunch lady smiled, waving back. Some day she might actually say something.

That'd be nice.

Before long, we arrived back at our dorm room. Suika tailed us, 'cause, y'know... she's a she. But, more importantly, I saw that she was in room 109, 'cause Nitori was a bit of a slowpoke and Suika a bit of a, uhh... fastpoke, I guess? But still, could be handy to know down the road. Meant I could find her if I had to!

Once I was dragged inside, Nitori let out a sigh. "Finally free of her! Jeez... I thought she'd never leave!"

"Heh. Someone has a fan! What's wrong with that?"

"A fan that can punch through a brick wall with a dodgeball. Even I'd think twice about making a fan like that..."

Snickering, and enjoying that little mental image, I figured we had a bit of privacy now. "Still, now that we're alone, I got somethin' I've been wanting to tell you."

Pausing before she looked my way, she asked, "Tell me? What?"

"Been keepin' it bottled up a while now, but I felt it's time." Grinning at the way her face heated up, I quickly added, "Apparently my affinity is water!"

She blinked, and then blinked again. "Ohh." And then again, followed by a rub of the back of her head. "Well, alright?" That said, she tapped her lip, pointing out, "I mean, as long as I've lived among humans, I really don't know enough about water magic to really, you know... teach it. So... I mean, I could, like... maybe teach you the first thing about it, but anything more would be, uhh..." She trailed off, asking, "Wait, you have one?" With my nod in tow, she snorted, asking, "What, are you actually some sort of witch? That'd be a real surprise..."

Snickered a bit, pointing out, "Me? Have witch in my blood? Get outta town!" Seriously, wouldn't that be weird? "Nah, it's just that even humans are like that, apparently."

"Wait, who told you tha—"

"Ohh, and some crazy redhead tried to murder me or sex me up. Noooot entirely sure which." Seriously, she could go both ways. ...Heh.

"What."

The look on her face made me a bit on edge. Wasn't the type that I'd call sweet or innocent as should be. "...Kinda a bit of a scary look ya got there, Nitori."

"A-ahh." She let out a breath full of all that hate, and like it was an afterthought muttered, "...Sorry."

Gave her a nice, solid smack on the back to shock her outta giving any further murderous faces. "It's okay. I kinda won, so won't be a problem."

And then she gave me the most surprised look possible. "You... won?" Man, stocks in kappa eyebrows went through the roof! Better get sellin'!

Oh, do you have feeeeelings for the yellow haired mistress in the black witch costume, Nitori?

Because entering murder-rage mode upon hearing that someone else may had gotten intimate with your (girl)friend isn't normal.

"Well, if you must know..."

"Whoa, there! Heel, heel!" Y'see, back then I was many things, but good at ridin' a gun-sword-broom wasn't something I'd claim. But, as hard as finding them was, finding an instructor was harder. And my girl? Totally one of a kind, and fully automatic. The broom part, I mean. Didn't have no stickshift. Still, what sent my girl into a tizzy was some broad. Pretty as a princess. A slutty princess, but still. Total babe material. Had tits out the wazoo, and they were barely contained by a corset that looked like it was made to fell trees, as tight as it musta been. As late as it was, normally I might miss her, but her hair was like silken rubies, no matter how dumb it sounds. But, as always, the moon did a good job on guiding my way, what with the fullness of it.

"I do declare... What a handsome woman you are." She was obviously into me. Like, seriously. She just called me handsome
and a woman in the same breath! Obviously knew the buttons to press. "Stranger, would you please come closer for completely savory reasons?" What woman that looked like you could snap her in two with a push would lie? Obviously the reasons were savory. But, when I came close, she grabbed me by the head and started talking in totally evil hisses that wouldn't ever get repetitive! "You fool!" Wait, no hisses that time. Uhh... "Thissss issss assss far assss you go!" And, for good measure, she also just kinda shouted some hissing at me. "SSSSSSSSS!" Yeah, that's better. Now, normally I'd be outta there like a bat outta hell, but she had powers. Eeeeevil powers. Powers with her eyes that stripped me of my free will, even! But ol' Broombroom had my back. Seriously, best broom eve— Wait...

"Hey, hey! Don't go fallin' asleep on me halfway through my tale!" Gave the squishy turtle cheek a few nudges, waking her back up.

"Huh...?" She'd been listening from her bed, so of course she fell asleep. "You done yet?" She let out a huge yawn, revealing those pearly whites and the squishy pink contents of her cucumber hole.

"What, you don't wanna hear how I broke free of her control?"

"Depends. Are you actually planning on telling me, or just making me watch you crap yourself?"

Rolled my eyes, admitting, "Okay, fine. Maybe I wasn't completely truthful."

"No. Really."

"Yeah, yeah." Always the sarcasm, isn't it? "But, still... wasn't much to it. After first period, I bumped into some red-headed girl. Turned out she had magic eyes that can charm any man's heart—" When Nitori started snickering, I quickly added, "Ohh, laugh it up, turtle... It's not like women are immune, obviously. Just that they have to be into women. Still, I was made her 'friend' till lunch." Easily the heaviest finger quotes of my life. "And then I somehow broke free, punched her in the nose and ran. Ohh, and Flan was there, but she somehow ended up the one needing protecting when miss bat head dumped a bucket of water on us. After a lot of posturing, she dive bombed us, ready to cleave us in two. But I was ready for her, and put all my soccer trick practice to good use on her crotch."

"That stupid flippy thing?"

"That stupid flippy thing, yeah." While she was busy snorting, I continued, "And boy did it seem to hurt, 'cause she kinda landed like a sack of potatoes. I mean, sure, I didn't stick the landing either, but I have the excuse of kicking somebody at least. She by all means shoulda just cut me in two with her finger nails, not gotten her junk bruised."

Nitori blinked a bit, before saying, as if in a daze, "I think that's the most truthfully you've ever told a story." I'd be offended if she wasn't kinda right. All that honesty left a bit of a weird taste in my mouth. "And... what happened after that? I can't imagine a kick being enough to stop a youkai for long..."

Well, that's worrying. Here I thought I might be able to study up on kick-fu or something and just button mash my way through school one crotch at a time.

As No Such Thing as Ghosts over in /th/ is not terribly far from completion, I will be switching off with this and that for now. When it is finished, I will then switch off writing this and my other two stories, more often than not in sequence, assuming that I get the votes needed to satisfy my cravings. Which is to say, 3+ votes, unless I feel two or less votes to be plenty due to this or that reason.

Updates for this story will grow longer, more often than not, meaning slower updates in general, but also more meaningful votes and a general increase in quality, both due to a lack of exhaustion and due to a lack of votes added that Marisa can solve herself. I expect, on average, for the updates on this story to break 2k words going forward. Now, unless I have a particularly bored night, that also means you won't be seeing those longer updates completed in a single sitting as they have been.

Always gotta get as much of a reaction outta her as humanly possible. Even if I'm giving her all the biggest details, I gotta get some sorta compensation, right? "Weeeeeeell..."

Nitori sent me a pretty irritated look, just as I was hoping for. "Just get on with it."

Gave her a roll of my eyes, round and pretty. Weren't no fake eyes, that's for sure. "I would have by now if you just let me talk." At the silence she let happen, I continued, "Now, apparently I was saved by a mage."

This got a few blinks and a smile outta her. Jackpot. "Ohh? Someone bothered to save... you..." Didn't like the way she was trailing off. Then again, was planning to spill some beans her way, so it was hardly as terrible as it could be. "Wait, why would someone save you?" ...Not sure if she meant that to hurt, but it kinda did.

Gave her a shrug; not a nice one, but a so-so, middle of the line type. "Seems she wanted to teach me how to do magic."

"...You're joking." Ouch. Always gotta find some sorta out from how awesome I am, huh?

Putting on a nice, big grin, I answered, "Do I look like I'm joking?"

Not skipping a beat, Nitori started rattling off, "Who, why, where, why and when?"

Makes sense she'd be fishy. I mean, if I were her, I'd probably be fishy, too! I mean, I'd be her, right? Probably sucks down fish like nobody's business. ...Then again, maybe she prefers sucking down cucumbers, judging by earlier.

Still, who should be a safe question to answer, right? "Called herself Patchouli Knowledge, and I think she had a bone to pick with the batty bitch trying to disembowel me. Took me somewhere private for a bit of, uhh... 'quick tutoring,' if ya get my drift." Not giving her the chance to blow her top, I quickly said, "Kidding, kidding!"

And, just like that, the girl let out a breath that stunk of angry turtle, if I had to make a wild guess. "You're going to give me a heart attack one of these days, Marisa."

Couldn't help the bit of a chuckle she got out of me. "Ehh, give it a couple years and a few thousand burgers."

"Ha ha, very funny." Could tell she was trying not to laugh, though. Probably would call me incorrigible if I wasn't hammering her with all these angry mood swings. Maybe I'll have to stop teasing the poor girl!

...Naaaah!

"You know ya like it!"

"That's beside the point and more to do with missing you, you dolt!" Just like always, that pout was worth the trouble.

"Potato, potahto."

"That's not how you use that turn of phase!" And, with that, she heaved a sigh. "You're going to give me high blood pressure within the month, aren't you." Wasn't a question, but a matter of fact. Or, at least, the way she said it was. If it'd happen or not was on me.

"Aaaanyways, getting back to where we were..." ...Where were we, actually? ...Ohh, yeah! "And she had a bone to pick with the batty bitch tryin' to disembowel me!" Gave her a grin; can't take all these eyerolls for free, can I? Besides, she should know better than to ask the same question twice; I may just end up answering it twice! "As for when, it was during lunch, and just before magic class, which led to me havin' to skip."

Wincing, Nitori pointed out, "Probably for the best that you skipped it, honestly. If you have a teacher, maybe you can at least learn passable knowledge on the matter to support your claims."

"Or I could just be a crap witch!"

"Or you could just be a crap witch, yes." She heaved a sigh, all but calling me an idiot. "Still, you're fine? She hasn't come for you again...?" Yeesh. The worry on her mug just about was palpable.

Gave a shrug, answering, "I'm more fine than her crotch and pride. Still, with Patches keeping me under her wing, I don't see her bein' a problem anytime soon. Now, maybe in the distant future, but not anytime soon!" Seemed to be under her power after all.

Pinching the her nose in a timeless show of suffering, Nitori said, "You need anything before bed? It's late, and unless your teacher is a big enough asshole to give homework on the second day, I'm going to bed."

"Sure, sure. Go on ahead. I oughtta go to bed as well, so see ya in the morning. Maybe we'll do breakfast!" Assuming I don't end up faceplanting out the door when Ko gets here.

With that said, the two of us got to changing into our PJs, and I held back a snicker at the bit of pudge she still had.

Coming soon in a theater near you...

But in all seriousness, sorry for the delay everyone. I've been... busy, to say the least. The slightly longer of itis that I need peace and quiet to write, as I have the attention span of a gnat, and have been losing out on that ohh so important period of time that would allow such peace and quiet.

In other words, It'll be done tonight, assuming I don't abruptly and dramatically explode. Without the time to really start writing, my brain has taken a nice break from my sucking at stopping to sleep. I've actually gotten reasonable amounts of sleep recently! Anyways, let me go pass out on my keyboard and post what comes out or something. Seemed to work for NaNoWriMo. Anywho, lemme go get started on that. See y'all in an hour or two, assuming you have very punctual reading habits.

"Well, well... so this is the one little sister likes, hmm?" ...This sort of smug felt familiar, yet different. I looked up from what seemed to be my bed and found an angel. Like, no joke. A goddamned angel, just chilling right there, sitting on Nitori's bed "Or should I say hates? Ohh, how time flies..." With a giggle she popped onto her feet and sashayed her way on over to me all sexy-like. Had a body full of damn, if I had to describe it quickly. "Cat got your tongue? I hear that kasha do so love laying claim on such things, though I think it has specific requirements you don't fill. Well, yet..." Dragging my eyes up from the school uniform-clad damn, I received a tap on my nose.

"I suppose I didn't have to remind where my eyes are~ How rare..." That grin she put on made me shudder a bit. Reminded me of


I woke to the sound of knocking, and felt like I got way less sleep than I'd like. Looking to the clock, it seemed I was right. Thinking to the day before, it seemed that it was about the time Patchouli spoke of, so I had a good idea who it was, too: Ko. However, before I could return my thoughts to the now, the sourpuss I called a best friend called, "Coming, coming..." When I looked, I found her to be rubbing her eye and all drowsy. As little sleep as I got, and with how we went to bed at the same time, the reason for that as well was plain to see.

Of course, as Ko tried to one-up Unzan on the scale of dickishness, I just let the butt burglar at her, listening in. Pretended to sleep, too, for good measure. None of that loud, fake snoring crap, either. Kinda played the part of roadkill, my tongue hangin' onto my pillow and my head kinda cocked at a little bit of an uncomfortable angle.

Heard the door creak open. Seriously, it's as if they use just the right amount of oil to get the creepiest sound out of every hinge in this school, so it wasn't exactly hard to pull it off. "...Who're you...?"

"Ahh! Err..." Yup. Definitely Ko. "...I came here for Marisa."

I could pretty much hear how suspicious she was when she said, "...What do you want with Marisa?"

"I—"

"Wait, better yet, answer the other question."

"I'm Ko... ...Ko. ...Ko. Kooooa!" ...Odd bit of trouble she sounded like she was having there. "...Just call me Ko, I guess..." Could hear the sigh of a woman suffering. Obviously was Ko's. Impressive volume it had, honestly. "And I'm here for Marisa."

"Why are you here for Marisa..." ...Well, Nitori's not sounding too friendly.

But, the question is, should I intervene or should I listen in. From the sound of it, Ko's not able to say her name for some reason. Maybe I could learn some stuff without needing to grill her.

[ ] Step in. While I hate Ko, she's kinda sounding like she might be getting ready for a faceful of angry turtle if I don't. Seeing as she's here for my sake, might feel just a little bad.
[ ] Just let it unfold. If I listen in, maybe I can get some more juicy info. Seeing as Koa seems to know exactly how little I'm capable of, I'd either have to get on her good side to get the down-low, or simply go over her by asking Patches.

Was she trying to think of a name that also started with Ko? Good look with that.

No use pissing off Patchouli by proxy.

Mostly agreed with above. Let's make sure we don't tick off Patchy by unnecessarily getting her... well, whatever she is wrecked.

Plus, I mean, we can't feel bad. I mean, Marisa, feeling guilty about something? Must avoid that.

I get the impression Trusty Patches doesnt give a damn about what pits Ko digs for herself (so long as she doenst die in them).

Ko's full name hasn't been used in the story yet. Likely, she can't say it due to her newfound contractual fetters. At least that's what the almighty ctrl+f tells me.

Not called yet! ...Hopefully tomorrow. Appointment in the morning, and I must prepare. Was hoping I had time, but alas, it wasn't meant to be.

Gonna post G first, as my editor has been too busy for me to not feel guilty about bugging, but after that? So much writing will happen.
