Mima's gaze didn't leave me for a second, it looked like she was expecting something.
"Anything else interesting?"
"Well, aside from making spellcards I figured out how to do interesting things with my body."
"For starters, this."
A bit of focusing and my right arm became a praying mantis' claw, then the large blade arm from before, then the heavy claw, and finally a heater shield, all with a black and silver theme.
Mima looked on with her sly smile, head propped up on one hand while the other lay across the first.
"Matches those gloves nicely. That sort of thing should be useful in spell melees where only a handful of people ever bother with extensive physical options. Just don't show that to Yukari, especially when her mind's in the gutter."
My right arm snapped back to normal when I contemplated what Mima meant, followed by my face feeling warm.
"Is Yukari that big a pervert?"
"Depends on her mood, really. Sometimes she's perfectly civil and other times we'll be cleaning up the mess she makes trying to seduce Reimu."
"Spare me the details."
"I will." Mima sat up properly again. "I am curious if you can change your whole body since you can change bits of it. But don't go trying it right now. Reimu isn't in the best mood since Yukari left. She'd probably mistake you for a random yokai and beat you up."
Almost on cue the miko walked in, pulled a few cushions together and crashed on them.
"What happened to you?" I turned my head to look at Reimu, though she didn't bother to look at me, preferring to keep her head in the cushion for now.
"Hungry..." Was the miko's muffled response. The added stomach rumbling only confirmed this. "I missed lunch dueling Tenshi..."
"You used Fantasy Heaven at every conceivable opportunity again, didn't you?" Mima looked rather annoyed now.
"And I pitched her into the deeper recesses of the forest when I knocked her out so she won't bug me for a few days." Reimu turned her head so she could look at Mima. "Food please?"
Mima got up and walked in the direction of the kitchen, sighing along the way. "Fine, but you do realise the more you humiliate her like this the more likely she is to try and pay you back for it."
"Mmmph." Was the only response she got.
"Aside from being hungry, are you sure you're not sore or something? Because I think I see bruises..." I cringed when I looked at her skin. Those dark blotches just should not exist to blemish such skin.
"Yes, I am sore. If you know how to help, do so." She looked straight at me with her commanding eyes. What is a guy to do?
I moved along side her and-
In the span of two seconds Reimu stood up, pushed me down and threw a yin-yang orb against the wall, which bounced off and shot behind a cabinent, bounced up from there to strike a black-haired girl holding herself up in the corner of the room with both legs and one arm, while the other held a camera that was aimed right at us.
"The press isn't allowed to take photographs of the inside of the shrine." No wonder no one actively challenges Reimu. Her face, despite being quite pretty, was in fact terrifying.
The black-haired girl recovered from the hit and stood up. Well, she tried to, but Reimu tossed several pieces of paper at strategic locations to pin her down.
"R-reimu, no hard feelings right? I w-wasn't about to put these in my newspaper!" I almost felt sorry for her until Reimu plucked the camera out of her hand.
The miko wasted no time getting it open and carefully looking through the negatives before cutting out a rather long strand of film and removing a small yet necissary part from the camera. Yet she placed the camera and part next to its owner a moment later.
"None whatsoever Aya. Just stop being a peeping tom already." Reimu didn't remove the seals, and as I opened my mouth to ask why she shot me a look that shut me up instantly before poking my chest. "I have one good reason for it. You."
"You mean this isn't just a shrine-goer, this is"..." Man Aya got excited fast... Those seals bent out when she tried to launch herself off the ground, which means either Reimu didn't use her strongest seals, Aya was just that fast, or both. "Reimu, let me go!"
"The moment you put that article in that tabloid of yours Yukari will practically be living
here until he stops by again, and I would sooner go into the deepest recesses of the forest of magic naked and defenseless than have that happen." Reimu seemed to lose that terrifying aura and crashed right into the cushions again. "Now please get started, I really need this."
Mima walked back in with lunch for Reimu, and just as my hands were about to start on her back she popped up and started eating. Making sure to thank Mima of course.
Then she lay down again and finally had me get started on massaging her. "Don't get any funny ideas either."
[X]Aya... She's supposed to know a lot about Gensokyo isn't she? Ask something. (specify)
[X]Ask about this 'Tenshi'
[X]Nari's been awfully quiet...
[X]Didn't Reimu just get her maid back yesterday? Where is she?
