I know! But, reasons. It bothered me too, and enough to make me think of a name. So there's that.
“Nah, we don't need to wait for her. She knows her way back.” Reisen seems more than willing to leave Tewi behind.
You scratch your head. “Is... is that a good idea? We are kind of in the middle of a forest that I didn't see any real landmarks in. And maybe the girl she jumped caught her?”
At this moment, a heretofore hidden trap activates. A rope noose grabs Reisen's ankle, and hauls her up into the tree with a surprised “Eeeep!” Reisen's now hanging upside down, frantically trying to cover her panties with her now gravitationally-inverted skirt.
It's not working too well.
“Ehehehehehe. You were going to leave me behind?” Seemingly from nowhere, Tewi walks into the small clearing. She crosses her arms, and smiles up at Reisen. “At least...” She pauses in thought, and then looks at you. “Hey. What's your name?”
“AJ. All my friends call me AJ. I never really liked my name.”
“See? AJ here has some sense. You don't. You were wanting to leave me behind.”
Reisen seems almost on the verge of tears. “No, no nonononononono! I wasn't- you can't think-”
Tewi affects a mocking imitation of Reisen's voice. “'No, we don't need to wait for her. Oh no, she knows her way back.' Well, you were right about that, at least.” Tewi turns to you, and beams a brilliant smile. “Anyway! I'm glad to have the opportunity to invite you to Eientei! We'll have good times together, you and me.”
You point to Reisen, who's still squirming and trying to simultaneously wipe away tears and cover herself. She doesn't have enough hands to do both well, unfortunately. “Shouldn't we... shouldn't we let her down?”
Tewi waves a dismissive hand. “Nah. This is an eaaaaaaasy trap. She'll get out herself, eventually.” With that, she walks off, and motions to you to follow. You turn towards Reisen, and give her your best 'I'm sorry' face. She sniffles a little, but doesn't say anything. You hope she'll be fine.
You follow the little pink rabbit through a thick forest of bamboo- when without warning, you break out of the forest into a very old looking, Japanese style home. It's large and sprawling, with low buildings and open space. It's made out of wood, paper, and bamboo. Very traditional, and really a nice, quiet location too. You can hear the gurgle of a brook somewhere inside the home.
Tewi stops and turns to you. “Well, we're here! Welcome to Eientei, home of the best Earth rabbit: Yours truly, Tewi Inaba!” She gestures grandly with a flourish on those last two words.
“Doesn't 'Inaba' just mean 'rabbit'?” You can't help but break her flow.
“Yes. Also shut up.” She glares at you. “So, you've met two of us that live here, Reisen and I. There's a couple of others that live here too. Now, we could do the boring-style introductions and whatnot, but, like I just said, boring. The obviously better and more fun option, of course, is 'introductions'.” You can see her doing the finger quotes around that last word.
“What's the difference?”
Tewi is not amused. “What, are you stupid? One's introductions and the other's 'introductions'. The difference is clear as day. Jeez.”
