Desperately, your hand shoots down, closing on the small object. "D-don't...don't make me use this!" You say, holding it up.
...The moonstone glows and pulses in your hand, emitting visible rings of light that fly off into the air, revealing a bit of the area around you. It's warm in your hand and seems to vibrate slightly with a repressed power.
Kagerou meanwhile is staring at the stone with an expression of rapt awe...and perhaps fear? "What...that's..." She seems off balance as she shifts her position, trying to move to the side and set up for something else, "Well now," She smirks, regaining control, "Impressive as that rock is, what are you going to do with it?" She asks, spreading her arms, "Throw it at me?"
"...Um." While it being the moonstone was, ah... slightly unexpected, you try to keep a determined face on. "...Maybe!" You declare, as assuredly as you can.
You hear the Yukari on your head sigh faintly in either disgust or disappointment, possibly both. Mima shakes her head in awe at your incredible plan, throwing an evolutionary stone that is reacting to something at-
Reisen tells you to throw the stone.
Kagerou apparently does notice as she shifts her stance, chuckling at you, "Really? You're going to throw a rock at me after you already laid out so much bait?" She asks with a grin, "You're not very good at this, are you?"
"...Good at-" You shake your head. She's trying to distract you! "I'll- I'll do it!" You threaten, waggling the rock at her in what is at least meant to be a threatening manner. "Don't think I won't! Because, uh, I will!"
"Really now?" Kagerou asks, shifting again as Reisen moves to keep her blocked off from you, "Because you really don't seem to be doing anything with that stone right now except posturing, bluffing and trying to buy more time for yourself." She informs you, eyes narrowing as she takes one step towards you ,"And really, what's one glowing rock going to do?"
Reisen really suggests to you quietly that you should throw that rock.
Kagerou's ears twitch as she grins wolfishly at you, "I'll give you a chance here and now. If you surrender and come with me willingly, I'll make sure your little friends get to go free safely." She offers generously, "That's quite a deal, and I assure you that you'd enjoy every last moment of it."
You hesitate. Well, if she'd really let them go... You shake your head again. "This....this is, um. This is your last chance!" You instead declare.
"Back off, or, or, I'll really throw it!"
"Oh?" She asks, her eyes narrowing as she slowly, languily takes one step towards you,"You know, I really doubt it." She says as she takes that single advance towards you.
Reisen suggests that perhaps you should please throw the stonenow Nebosa.
Mima just tells you to listen to Reisen and throw it already and to stop waffling around more than her breakfast.
"Auuugh!" You reply, as you suddenly hurl the glowing, overloaded rock at the werewolf.
It sails through the air beautifully, arcing towards a somewhat impressed looking Kagerou. Apparently she didn't think you'd throw a rock at her even when it was in your hands and you were getting egged on by your touhoumon. Mima pats you on the back, congratulating you on literally throwing away 2100 credits of rock.
Then the rock bounces off of Kagerou's chest and hits the ground in front of her, still glowing.
"...Well." She grins at you a moment later,"Wasn't that something-." She's interrupted by the stone suddenly exploding with light that consumes her and blinds you to what's going on. You can make out the shapes of the other touhoumon surronding you all shrinking back from the light.
Reisen smirks a touch smuggly.
You can't help but shout in surprise as you stumble backwards and fall on your ass, staring at the explosion with your jaw slack.
The light grows in its glow until it suddenly fades away as quickly as it came, revealing that...
...Congratulations! The wild Kagerou has evolved into...something?
Kagerou stands there, lookiing entirely shocked now that she is completely devoid of her dress and is revealed to you in her full glory. Her full, naked glory.
Her lower arms and legs are covered in fur now and have vicious looking claws...though you suppose they did in the first place, perhaps? She was covering herself in that dress.
...Did this do anything besides take her clothes from her?
Jaw still slack, you numbly use your tablet to scan the naked Touhoumon, confused at the strange occurrence. You'd never heard of this happening to a Kagerou before, and they're not exactly uncommon...
...The tablet pipes up. "Unrecognized Variant spotted! Taking scan data to compare to main database!" It says as it begins to take pictures of her and lets out that strange, scanning beam that runs along Kagerou's form.
Kagerou for her part seems to have come out of her shock and slowly looking more and more horrified,"...no..." She mutters, tears starting to build up in the corners of her eyes,"no..."
As your tablet finishes its scan she suddenly moves to cover herself,"Noooooooooooo~!" She screams out embarassedly,"Don't look at meeeeeee!" She squeals before running away from you at a full tilt.
You are somewhat distracted by her incredible ass, and as such it takes you a moment and getting slapped lightly by Mima to bring yourself back to the moment.
...Oh, your tablet is compiling data on that Kagerou and-
"LGKagerou, or Loup Garou Kagerou, is a Kagerou whose physical limits have been removed by exposure to an extreme amount of lunar energy. These Kagerou are stronger than even an EX evolution of the same general combat level in most categories. However, extremely few are spotted due to extreme and/or unknown requirements for causing the evolution. more data is required for analysis before further conclusions can be drawn.
That's somewhat worrisome.
Around you, you hear the chatter from the remaining touhoumon as their powerful leader flees away squealing about how hairy she is.
Mima takes this opportunity to charge up another of her masterful spark attacks and prepares to cast it on the darkness. Reisen's body seems to develop a strange pink haze around it as she stares out into the shadows as well, and from on top of your head...what is this strange pressure!" Yukari appears to be doing something as well.
The touhoumon around you chatter and...
...back down? You can hear them dispersing and running away now, splitting up and running off into the forest.
You, uh. Close you mouth? And get up. "Um."
"...And so, everything is resolved completely." You decide. "Let's fix camp."
And of course, it couldn't all be over and resolved completely. From off in the darkness you hear the sound of clapping. "Well done." A familiar voice praises you, the grin in it entirely evident,"Well done indeed my find young friend. Here I was getting ready to intervene and you proved yourself most capable."
Chester steps into the light of your campfire, grinning widely,"To be honest, I was worried you would do something foolish, like release what I suspect you've caught."
"...Ah." It's the most suspicious man alive, Chester! "...You followed me!" You accuse, not replying to his, ah....all too reasonable doubts.
"Actually, I didn't. Well..." He considers, "I suppose I did, but not in the way you suspect! You see Nebosa, there I was handling matters related to the fellow that you aided me 'apprehending'." He puts special emphasis on the fact that he was most certainly not kidnapping him, "After I handed him over to my superiors, I was explaining the situation to them when I, for some strange reason, couldn't actually remember anything specific about you in the least." He spreads his arms in mock shock, "It was embarrassing for me, to say the least. Thankfully, with Kukoi's help I managed to piece things together enough to realize just what was going on, after I 'perused' the local records in the Police Office." He tells you, "So many missing people reports, and considering just how many of them referenced the rough area you'd been heading towards?" He shrugs ,"Well, I couldn't just ignore the situation after that. Though, it looks like my worry was for nothing." He laughs, "You've handled the situation quite well, it would seem. Now though..."
His eyes glint sharply, "Would you kindly tell me what happened? The short version, if you would."
"Um." You don't hesitate for long. "...I showed up at the Abandoned town, but decided to check the schoolhouse first, and there was a Keine there, but she didn't act like the Tablet said they should, and she attacked us, and I had to, uh, catch her, but then the town fell apart." You explain, in a great rush.
Chester pauses for a long moment,"...Ah, I see! That does explain a few things, yes." He says, nodding sagely and rubbing his chin,"...Oh right, by the way, you may want to get moving from this place. If I had to hazard a guess those heel draggers at the police force in Hakutown will be putting two and two together in about an hour or so and they'll be coming here in force to investigate." He explains to you,"And you're going to be a person of interest for them. If you're still here when they arrive...likely they'll take you into 'protective custody' and you'll be poked and prodded for who knows how long about what you saw and experienced."
"Oh, and not to mention they would take any 'evidence' you had." He adds on as an aside.
"....What." Is your simple reply. ...The poli- wait, missing perso- what.
"Oh yes." Chester responds, his grin actually dimming a touch, "I'm afraid that Keine you caught has been disappearing people for quite some time now. We've reliable records of it dating all the way back to when Hakutown was properly settled, it would seem. Since whatever she was doing was potent enough to make people forget the people and gloss over the reports and not put together the pattern." He explains, "People go missing all the time. Sometimes they show up again, sometimes..." He just shrugs.
"Anyway, I'll likely be headed back to town by a safe side route I know." Chester explains, "If you would care to join me, I have something I would like to discuss with you that I think you’ll want to hear." He grins widely again, “Besides, with the both of our entourages together, I doubt anything in these woods would be fool enough to try and pick a fight.”
[ ] Go with Chester! He’s got a point, after all.
[ ] Go back to Hakutown by yourself! You’ve had enough adventures innawoods for now.
[ ] You’ll go ahead and stay here, thanks.
