[Parsee: This next scene was really fun to do. I really enjoy working with Anon. His sense of passion and humor always keeps the job fresh and invigorating. Makes each day a joy to come and work with.]
You arrive at what appears to be the edge of the Palace of Earth Spirits' grounds. Appears to be because of the sudden proliferation of chest high walls. Man this would be perfect cover if you were ambushed.
... That should be meaningful.
Both you and Parsee dive behind the chest high walls in shock.
"Kya- Ha-Ha-Ha!" A teal haired girl floats down from above.
[ Kogasa: Ha ha! I'm finally in the story! Hooray! The entrance took about six months to work out properly. It was such a pain.]
[ Parsee: Kogasa's such an airhead. So difficult to work with her. She can be distracted by the slightest little thing. That's why it took six months to film one scene. She kept getting everything wrong. *Parsee Sighs* But what can you do?]
"What in the hell?"
"Oh. It's just Kogasa
. What do you want?"
"Hehe, is that any way to treat me, Parsee? I'm just a little hungry and since I saw you, I figured I might get a light snack out of the deal~ Besides, I have new stuff to sell!"
"Sell? What on earth are you talking about?" You scratch your head. This strange girl with an umbrella doesn't seem to be carrying anything.
"You can use 'shock dollars' to buy things from me! You get them by surprising people! So, done anything shocking today?"
[ Parsee: Kogasa's reaction to this next part is so funny.]
"Well, I slammed a bucket over this shrine maiden's head." You pause, rubbing your chin, "Then threw her into a sack, reduced Yuugi to tears, got some orb drunk, and Parsee shattered the other two."
"Yeah right!" The tongue coming out of the umbrella waggles. "Oh? You think he might be telling the truth? How 'bout some proooooof then?"
"Ok. Hey, Parsee, Open the bag."
Parsee does as instructed. You give the back a whack and a dazed Reimu rolls out of your sack, complete with drunk orb.
"MMMMph! Mmnnnmmn! MMMMMMM!" Reimu starts to squirm. You give her a firm whack on the head with the blunt side of the nail board. She's out like a light once again.
"Hey, gimme a hand loading her back in, wouldja?" You struggle with the unconscious maiden, and the renewed struggling of the drunk orb. It takes a little bit, but the two of you managed to get the bag shut again.
"Whew. Glad that's over. So, Now do you believe us?"
Kogasa just stands there in shock, staring at the pair of you. "But... What... How? ... Bwuh?"
"I think you broke her." Parsee smirks. "For once, I'm glad I'm not her~"
[ Parsee: And really, I was. As an actor, we hadn't told Kogasa what was going to happen in that scene. It was great. I almost died laughing on the first take, but, being the consummate professional that I am, I managed to suppress it. It was one of the few scenes that we only needed one take for. And I don't think it would have worked as well with a second take. hehe ]
"I... I... Well, wow. Thanks for the meal." Kogasa finally returns to her senses.
"Hm?" You look up from your card game with Parsee. "Oh, you're finally conscious again? I thought I'd broken you."
Lying on the ground, feet kicking in the air, Parsee takes her turn. "Have any Twos?"
Parsee picks a card up from the pile between the two of you. She curses silently.
"Got any threes?"
"Ah! You always know which cards I have! I wish I had your intuition." She hands over a three which you use to complete another pair.
"Um...?" Kogasa looks quite confused. "How long was I out?"
"Eh... Fifteen minutes? Would you say it was about fifteen minutes, sanch... Parsee?"
"Yeah, something like that. Fives?"
"You sunk my battleship!"
"Oh. Right." You hand over a five.
"Yay!" Parsee puts down four fives.
You smile. "Congrats!"
"Uh... Hello?" Kogasa looks slightly distressed, "Are you ignoring me?"
