"Hey," says Momiji, now in the scene, "I'm in heat."

The room is ripe with your awe-filling scent.

Nitori, the intruding lesbian she is, barges into the room like a barge would, except if a barge were 30 kilos and had no concept of personal space. "Why does it smell like seafood in here?"

As you were saying, the room is ripe with your awe-filling scent.

"Seriously. Open a window or something."

You squint incredibly hard into the sun. The result is as you'd expect.

Nitori asks, "Uh. What are you do—"

"—Quiet, I'm trying to concentrate."

Because of your superior wolfish vision, your corneas are burning at a rate that no mere man could match. You are now blind... probably.

"Are you okay?" says Nitori, or so you would assume, because you can't see anything.

"No. My eyes hurt."

"Okay. So why'd you do that?"

[ ] The gods willed you to do so.
[ ] You think that physical impairment is amusing.

“Well, I thought it was a good idea and—“

“—Yeah, that’s a phrase that always turns out well.”

“—and there was no reason not to do it, so it just became an end that justified the means.”

Nitori just looks at you, and not the kind of look where she’s about to jump you sexually. “That doesn’t make any sense. Are you stupid?”

“Stupid is a harsh word.”

“I don’t get you.”

“I’m still here, by the way,” says Momiji, who didn’t get the memo that it’s not her turn to be a part of the scene. “Just letting you know.”

“Cool,” you say, at least to acknowledge her before moving onto the next order of business. “I’m heading out.”

You head out into the wall. Right, you’re still blind.

Nitori snorts. “Nice going, chump.”

If you’re going outside, you’ll need an escort.

Either that, or someone who will tell you that you’re not going face-first into the wall.

You grab the first thing that you collide with, which, in this case, is Nitori’s tits. You give them a squeeze for good measure and… where were you?

Right. Balancing. Blindness. Soft. “Okay, that decides it. Nitori, you’re gonna have to guide me around while my eyes aren’t doing their job.”

“Wait, what?” she says, already half-undressed. When did she get half-undressed? Or maybe she’s half-dressed, depending on your perspective. Not that you would know. You’re blind. Actually, how did you know she was half-dressed? “Also, could you not?”

Again, your hand is on her boobs. Whoops.

“Let’s go already.”

“W-Well!” Momiji whines. “He’ll choose me next time!”

“Yeah whatever, bitch,” you say.

“See! Toldya!”

“Um,” Nitori, in the middle of re-clothing herself, interjects, “wait a sec. Didya not hear him? He just totally called you ‘bitch’ there, didn’t he?”

“It’s a term of endeaaaaaarment!” Momiji cries as Nitori drags you away.

-------

Minutes later, after you trip on everything you possibly could have, you decide to ask a very important question.

“So where are we going?”

“I don’t know. We’re already lost.”

“Lost? How’d you get lost? Don’t you live here?”

“Don’t you?”

“I’m blind.”

“Yeah, and we’re lost. Tell me something I don’t know.”

“Hold up!” a voice cries. It’s a crow tengu. Definitely has a nice rack. Got hips to die for, too. Her legs are plenty curvy, shaping nicely at the thighs and—

“Can you stop feeling me up already?” the crow asks.

[ ] You’re blind, so you stop.
[ ] You’re blind, so you don’t stop.
[ ] Since she insisted, you’ll feel up Nitori instead.
[ ] Tell her you’re deaf so you can’t hear her.

“What?” you say. “I can't hear you! I'M DEAF.”

“But, but, but!” she sputters. “I saw you! You were just talking to that kappa!”

“I definitely was not.”

“You were too! You were most definitely—wait. Did you just reply back?”

“WHAT?”

“YOU KNOW WHAT?” the tengu shouts back. “FINE. JUST GO ALREADY.”

“Heaven almighty,” says Nitori. “Could you two quiet down a little? My ears are pounding.”

“WHAT?” says the crow. “I WAS TALKING TOO LOUD TO HEAR YOU.”

“Bumbling idiots,” grumbles Nitori.

You glare at the kappa—or at least at her direction. “Hey, I heard that. What do you take me for, Nitori, deaf?”

“You just said—!”

“—What?”

Having enough of this farce, Nitori bids the crow a good day and wrangles you along what you assume is down the mountain.

“Whaaat. Why'd we leave? We just got to the good part,” you tell her. “I was about to make the moves on her.”

“Didn't you just slap your hands on her boobs?”

“That was just lucky—I mean—an accident.”

“You're horrible.”

“You aren’t wrong. I am pretty terrible, aren’t I?”

“O-Oh,” Nitori says, taken aback. Guess she didn’t expect that one, eh? “Well, as long as you realize it, then—”

“—But you’re also jealous, so there. We’re even now.”

“Yeah, you’re completely right—wait.” Nitori’s voice flattens. “Say what? Haha. Hahahaha, good one, but no. I was about the furthest thing away from ‘jealous’ possible, friend-o.”

“Sure. I believe you.”

“I know you don’t, but I don’t give a darn what you think. It’s the truth, after all.” Nitori hmphs. She does what you assume to be the act of jutting out her chin haughtily, but you can’t tell. You’re still deaf-blind, right? “You’re worse than the humans. At least they pretend to be sorry after they wrong ya. You just mosey on in and harass people. Then, when everybody’s lookin’ for an apology, you move on to your next victim. Terrible. Feh!”

“Oh, I know this. This is what they call the tsoon-day-ray, right?”

“The what now?”

“You know. It’s the new word that humans call—how do you say, uh—oh yes: verbally or physically violent.”

“Ugh. Don’t pick up things from humans. They’re all slobbering bumbos. Can’t appreciate the finer things in life. I give them a gadget and they call it a ‘toy.’ Simpletons, all of ‘em. I swear, they can’t do anything right!”

And, as it so happens, a pack—or whatever you call a group of humans—come trekking through the mountain path. Not that you know—because you’re blind, of course.

“H-H-H-Hu—!”

“Humans?” you graciously offer.

Nitori does a complete one-eighty and does a cry that wouldn’t have been out of place in the Mesozoic era. She digs herself a metaphorical hole in the back of your robe. The better-than-thou, condescending professor voice she’s been working up fizzles out into varying degrees of “aieeee!” and “uwwoaaaa!”

Footsteps stop about thirty feet away from you. The group of humans whisper for some reason, which is interesting because you can pick up on every word. Do they not know how good a wolf’s hearing is? It’s mostly a lot of “Oh shiiiit” and “What now!?”

“Honorable wolf tengu,” says a man, scared to ballocks. Haha, his voice is even trembling! “I hate to interrupt you from your duties, but could you grant us passage? We are but humble harvesters, gathering herbs for our pharmacists. We mean not to intrude.”

“Yeah, sure, go for it.” You wave him off. “Don’t really care.”

The pack of humans are confounded, doing their sports huddle again.

A man’s voice finally comes out of the human pile. “T-Thank you, kind wolf.”

Oh, but before they leave…

[ ] “Haha, just kidding, you can’t pass. I’ll devour you now.”
[ ] “So, Nitori, you were saying something about how humans can’t do anything right?”

“So, Nitori, you were saying something about how humans can’t do anything right?”

The kappa, who had been the closest thing to invisible at that moment, does a combination of sneering at you and hiding behind your back. Very menacing, you note. “I did not,” she hisses.

“No, I’m pretty sure you did. ‘Slobbering bumbos,’ you called them all. Great phrase, if I might add.”

Footsteps shuffle around awkwardly. The humans are still around. Must be tough to be scared shitless and be insulted simultaneously.

“No, I didn’t—I wouldn’t—I’d never—okay, we need to talk. Away from here, please.” Nitori drags you by the hem of your robe’s shoulder, going until you’re far past the humans and the mountain path. “So. Why?”

“I wanted to see how you would’ve reacted.”

“Well? You saw it. Are you happy now?”

“The results leave a lot to be desired. Also, there’s a feral youkai right behind you.”

“So you really had to make a cheap joke at my expense—wait, wha—”

A rupturing bellow interrupts her thoughts. A snarling youkai beast swipes at Nitori, but the kappa is already scrambling away. If anything, you give her credit for being so good at hiding and running away from trouble.

“Ruuuun!” screams Nitori, breaking into a frenzied dash.

Wrote this right before I hopped on the plane. Excuse any glaring mistakes.

-----------------------

“What, another one of these things? The shrine gods must be slacking.”

“Hey!” Nitori frantically shouts. “Let’s get outta here already!”

You plant your feet to the ground, a hand falling to the sheath of your odachi. Sliding your thumb up the hilt, you draw. The sound of the blade scraping across the throat of the scabbard turns the monster’s head.

“Running’s for bitches. And I, as you may already know, am not a bitch.” From your peripherals, you take a glance at Nitori, who has claimed for herself a large tree to hide behind. You do not let the beast out of your sight. The thing is grotesque: its face is a myriad of infested wounds on its face, oozing red and yellow. Dried blood cakes its rough, jagged claws. “Plus, I cannot let this monster roam the mountainside. It’ll be trouble. The youkai’s emitting some bad mojo. Bad spirits in ‘em.”

“Mojo? Spirits?” Nitori shakes her head. “That’s not important right now. We can’t fight that thing alone. You can’t see, remember?”

“That’s where you’re wrong. Jokes on you, I wasn’t actually blind.

“...Nnnnno, that’s a lie. I saw you. I know it. You weren’t pretending.”

You turn to her, staring right at the Kappa. “See for yourself. I’ve recovered a long time ago. Wolf tengu regenerate quick, if they try.”

“And suddenly, you’re okay now?” she asks, incredulous.

“Yeah. I’ve healed. Even if I didn’t, I don’t need perfect vision to slay this beast. And speaking of...” You turn back to it. It’s not there anymore. “Ooh. That’s not good.”

A crackle of splintering wood erupts from above you. You swing your blade upward, connecting with the entire upper half of a tree. The blade rips through the bark, a loud crash of metal piercing wood echoing through the forest. When your blade completes its arc, a blackened claw stabs past your chest and crunches through your ribs. Nail rips through your heart and everything after it.

“Damn. My heart,” you say. “That was my favorite vital organ.” You glance at the feral on top of you, busy trying to free its claws from your body. “Ah well. At least you can’t run away now.”

You grip the beast’s arm to make sure it doesn’t release itself from you. Then, tightening your grip on your odachi, you stab straight between its eyes in one clean thrust. The thing shrieks, violently spewing red from its eyes and mouth as it flails around wildly. In its final moments, the beast makes an attempt to crunch your head with its maw, but you sink your blade deeper into its skull, steel puncturing bone with an audible crack.

“Phew.”

Nitori comes scrambling out from behind the tree. “Oh, holy mother of god, you’re dying you’re dying—ohgodyourheart—it’s ripped out and… wait. How are you not dying?”

[ ] You’re dying? Okay, might as well now, since the situation calls for it. Cue dramatic death.

Might as well ham it up while the mood's good. You suck in some air before dropping to your knees and vomiting out an egregious amount of blood. A rib or two is jutting out from your chest, but that ain't much of an act. At least that should make up for your poor acting abilities. You let your sword clatter to the floor as you slam face-first into the dirt.

“N-Nitori...” you moan, blood gurgling in your mouth.

“What!?” she says, rushing over to your side. Her hands are trembling as she grips yours tightly. Seems like she's too shaken up to remember that you didn't really mind losing your vital organs.

“I'm—god help me—I'm sorry I did all those things to you earlier today. And...aaaand...”

“And!? And what!?”

In a whisper, you tell her, “I want you to have something.”

“W-What? What are you giving me?”

You enclose her hand around a familiar object. “I want you to give you my heart.”

Nitori gasps, completely in shock until she realizes it isn't a metaphor for anything. Then she double-takes, her gaze locked onto your still-beating organ. Then she screams bloody murder.

You burst out laughing, though the sudden movement gets the blood splattering everywhere. “You—bwahaha—y-you should've seen your face! You looked like you were about to die! Even more than me!”

The kappa exhales through her nose. She counts to ten under her breath. Then, Nitori takes your heart and launches it into the stratosphere.

“Aah! My heart! You threw away my heart!”

“You were just asking for it. I don't even understand you. Not just your mind, but everything about you is a complete enigma. I can't even ask, 'How are you alive?' without confusing myself.”

“Tengu regenerate fast.”

You just had your heart ripped out.

“Like I said, tengu regenerate—”

“No seriously. How are you alive? Can you even stand?”

“Just give me a minute. My—hnngnfffff—my heart isn't in it, you know what I mean? Heh. Heheh.”

“Welp," she says, wiping the blood off her hands with your robe, "I'm leaving you behind.”

“Waaait. At least take me to Little Hina—excuse me. At least take me to Kagiyama's.”

“...Fine.”

But despite her initial reluctance, Nitori didn't complain once as she dragged you through the river to Hina's place. Probably because she tried to drown you at some point. Or every point. That's fair. You did just smear her all over with blood.

Hina Kagiyama, the curse goddess of the mountain, lives in a little cabin away from the main road. Conveniently enough, she lives close to a river so Nitori can just take the metaphorical bullet train straight to the Home of Great Misfortune.

Nitori dumps you on the ground to knock on the goddess's door. “Hina, are you home? I have something you might want to look at.”

The door clicks open. Hina takes a peek outside. “My, what a surprise, Nitori. What's this on the ground?” The goddess squints. Then, with a frown, she squints harder. “Oh. Oh, my. I see. I understand. And, well, he'll be fine.”

“Curse goddess,” you say. “I just had my organs ripped out of me. Could you spare some mercy?”

“You don't really need it. You're alive, aren't you? Have a nice day.”

Nitori looks flabbergasted. She rushes to you and says in a low voice, “Woweee. Never seen Hina act that cold to anyone before.”

“Yeah, weird huh? Don't be so mean, goddess. I won't bite. I just need a place to stay while my organs reassemble themselves.”

Hina, without so much as a smile, says, “I know who you are and you should stop pretending.”

“Looks like the jig's up.”

“Sorry?” Nitori, obviously not keeping up with the program, turns to you.

“Since you've figured it out,” you tell Hina, “you can't really refuse me anymore, can you?”

“I suppose not,” the goddess sighs. “Please come in, but try not to make yourself too much at home.”

You keel over onto the nearest cot, letting it soak red in your own guts. Truthfully, you didn't really need to rest, but your physical body isn't taking orders from you anymore. You should recuperate. At the very least, you'll get some quality time with Hina and Nitori while you recover.

That is, if you didn't pass out at that exact moment. But it's not like you really passed out. You were still aware. Just unconscious.

“Hey, Nitori,” you say the moment your body allows you to. You're met with silence. Damn. Did they go and ditch you while you were asleep? “Nitoriiiiii. Hina?”

You wait as long as you possibly can for them.

A grueling ten minutes pass.

You are now bored.

You should wait a little more like the good wolf you are. If anything, you know who's a good boy, and it's you, yes you are.

Anyway. Your patience is rewarded because the goddess and your kappa friend return. Nitori's wearing the face of “I'm going to say something before you can even have the chance to talk.”

“So—”

“So, 'you.' Whoever you are. Wolf tengu, if that's what you really are. Hina told me things. A lot of things,” Nitori says, her lips pursing to a frown. “What the hell? You're a god? First of all, what? Second of all—seriously, what?”

“I can see how it'd be easy to confuse me for the real deal, but I'm just a humble wolf trying to make do with what I can.”

“Oh, cut the crap. Hina told me that you're a habitual liar. Ya can't weasel your way outta this one.”

“Just tell her the truth,” the curse goddess adds.

“Sure. If you really want me to. I'd do a dramatic flourish of my robe, but it's all caked in blood right now.” You do the little hocus-pocus finger movement instead. Your audience doesn't laugh. “I am the great White Wolf of the West.”

“The White Wolf of the West!?” gasps Nitori. “Never heard of you.”

“I figured as much. I ain't exactly a god that the humans loved. A shame, really. I want to get along with the humans better.”

“You always take their harvest, ransack their villages, and threaten them with ill fortune.” Hina points to herself unamusedly. “I have to deal with that, by the way.”

“About that.” You struggle with your words. What was that word again? Sorr—Soirée? Saury? Saussure? No, you were right the first time. “Yeah. My bad. Sorry, Hina.”

Hina does a turn of her head so fast you could've sworn you heard something snap. “Excuse me. What?

“Did I just hear right?” The goddess flicks her gaze over to the kappa. “Nitori. Did he just say the S-word?”

“Um. ‘Sorry’? I think he did, yeah. Is that bad?”

Rude,” you say, shaking your head in disappointment. Hina's being real awful. You even said saury. Erm, sorry.

“I don't think I've heard the White Wolf say sorry for years. Could you repeat that? Just to confirm.”

“Nope,” you say. “Not a chance, kiddo. You only get one of those a century.”

“Maybe next time,” Hina grumbles, “I'll have you apologize in writing. Then I'd frame it and put it up on my wall.”

“Is it really worth that much to you?” sighs Nitori.

“Of course it is!” you interject. “Hina knows my merit and worth. My words are golden, baby.”

“Because you're the White Wolf of the West?”

“What other reason could it be?”

“I guess. What makes you so special, though?”

“I'm the White Wolf of the West.”

“I get that.” Nitori takes a seat close to your bedside. “What I'm saying is, 'Why is the White Wolf so special?'”

“Stuff. Things. I'm powerful.”

Nitori frowns. “Maybe I should be more specific.”

“Why do you exist?” asks Nitori.

“Wow, okay, that’s not really cool of you to attack me like that.”

Hina keeps her gaze—and not the pleasant kind—trained on you. “It’s sudden, but entirely justified, don’t you think?”

“Uh. To be honest, no. I don’t think so.”

Nitori shakes her head. “Look, that’s not what I meant. When I said, ‘Why do you exist?’ I meant, ‘What did you do? Why did you come here?’ Things like that.”

“Weeeell, I was born into this world like any other wolf. Birthed from my mother. But I was the special one. The white wolf. The great white wolf. I became a legend. Many feared me and respected me. They brought me offerings and gave me prayers. How could I have not become a god? They put me on a pedestal and lifted me up to godhood. I wasn’t going to refuse them. I scared them—and I kinda liked that.”

Nitori can’t resist interrupting with, “Of course you would.”

“Though, I didn’t do squat until they built me a shrine and gave me a sacrifice. Man, I still remember that. It was a virgin girl. I was like, ‘What am I gonna do with this? I can’t eat this.’ So I just kept her.”

“...Kept her?” Nitori parrots, mouth slightly agape in disgust.

“What was I gonna do with her? Return her? Don’t make me laugh. But anyway, every day, I thought about what I should do with the girl. She just stayed around the shrine and cleaned. Occasionally, she’d groom me with one of those fancy hairbrushes. That felt nice. The grooming earned big points with me. I can respect a girl who can brush well. I even learned the human language too so that I can ask for more of that sweet, sweet grooming.”

“Ahem. That’s aside the point.” You could go on for hours about the gentle touch of her brush, but you won’t. Another time, maybe. “I soon adopted a human form because apparently it’s weird for a wolf to drop by and say good evening. That was probably a mistake though. That shrine girl loved me—and when I changed myself to look more human, she started loving me all the more. So I nabbed her in the sheets. But then she went and got all guilty and told the village elders what she did. Know what happened, Nitori?”

“What?” asks Nitori.

Hina’s just glaring at you.

“They sliced off her head, of course. Right then and there.”

“H-Huh?” Nitori’s voice lowers to almost a whisper. “And then what?”

“Nothing much. I just killed them all.”

“Really!?”

“Huh? Oh, you actually believed that?”

Nitori looks over to you blankly. “Wait, that wasn’t true?”

“Nah. I don’t actually remember anything about my past so I thought I’d make up a cool story.”

“You—You… You’re a piece of garbage. ”

You shrug. “Consider yourself one of many added to the list of people who hate me.”

“So, what?” Nitori says, frustration weighing the corners of her lips down. “That was all a lie?”

[ ] “Her name was Dahlia.”
[ ] “What else did you expect?”
[ ] “What can I say? I’m a liar.”
[ ] “Hina can confirm.”
[x] “Her name was Dahlia.”
[X] “Her name is Sekibanki.”

“I would never lie,” you tell Nitori, throwing on your honest face. You give her the classic doe eyes too, for extra effect.

“Oh, really now? How about every single time you open your mouth?”

“That’s all propaganda spread by the other gods to defame me. I’m just a victim of circumstance.”

Hina doesn’t say a word, but her disgust is palpable. She’s doing that look again. The one where she’s about to say that you’re a complete idiot.

“You’re a complete—”

“—Idiot, yes I know. You don’t have to repeat yourself. I got it the first time. I know because I can’t keep my things safe.”

Nitori’s hesitant to ask. “So… her?”

Her. My precious little sacrifice.” Your lips curl into a nasty frown. You’d stop yourself, but sometimes, it feels good to bathe in your own self-deprecation. “Really, I wish they didn’t have to lop off her head. It rolled off straight down her shoulders. So I took their lives and went on my merry way. After that, she cooked me a delicious dinner as thanks.”

“I’m so sorry, I didn’t know that—hold on.” Nitori closes her eyes, rubs her eyes wearily, then, with a wince, says, “What was that last part?”

“I think we had something fancy that day. Lamb? It was probably lamb, and—”

Stop.” Nitori’s mind was racing—or that’s what you’re assuming because she looks like she’s about to pop a vein. A myriad of emotions pass through her face, most of which is some derivative of anger. “That last part. ‘She’ cooked you dinner? Who is ‘she’?”

“What? Oh. The sacrifice girl. Were you even listening to my story?”

“She—but—didn’t she—god. Okay, Nitori, chill,” she mumbles to herself. You don’t interrupt her, mostly because it’s amusing to watch the kappa squirm. Clearing her throat, Nitori continues. “Didn’t she… die?”

“No? I never said anything about her dying.”

“Then how—?”

“It’s because, uh… what was her name again? It eludes me every single time. Oh, right!” Beaming, you say, “It’s Sekibanki.”

“What? What is—oh.” You can almost see the gears turning in her mind. “Ohhhh. I get it.” Nitori moves to just a few inches away from your face and, completely deadpan, says, “What the fuck.”

Hina, without so much as batting an eye, takes a seat on her recliner. “Like I said. You’re never going to get a real answer from him. He doesn’t trust anybody. The White Wolf always puts up a front like he doesn’t care, just to protect himself. He doesn’t accept help from anybody—not from humans, not from a kappa, not even from a curse goddess. Better leave him alone so he can finally disappear.”

You smile. “Hina.”

“Hakurou.”

“Sometimes, you just rub me the wrong fucking way.”

Good. You need some more spite in your life. Maybe you should hold onto the past a little more and see where that gets you? Oh, wait. It’s gotten you nowhere.”

“...Uh.” Nitori blinks. “Should I leave, or...?”

“Actually, yeah. You should. And I’m going with.” You stare Hina down before taking your exit. “See ya, curse goddess. Don’t be such a stick in the mud all the time.”

Hina narrows her eyes. “I hope you understand that she’s never coming back.”

And, with a shut of the door, it’s just you and Nitori again. You both stay silent until you’re far from Hina’s place. Nitori sneaks a couple glances at you, antsy as hell. She either wants to talk or really needs to go to the restroom.

“I don’t mind,” you say. “I’ll wait here.”

“Huh? What are you talking about?”

“I guessed wrong. You can keep talking.”

“Okay, well. What was that? At Hina’s place. I’ve never seen her—or you—like that.”

“You see, Nitori.” You crouch down to face her at head-level. “When Mommy and Daddy yell at each other, it’s not that we don’t love you anymore. It’s just that we have a difference of—”

“Oh, shut up. You know what I mean.”

“I do. And it doesn’t really have anything to do with you. So, sorry ‘bout that.”

“Figures.”

“And her name was Dahlia, by the way.”

“You lost me again. Who?”

“The sacrifice.”

Nitori squints. “You’re lying again, right?”

You keep silent.
The warmth of the sun kisses your cheeks. The day could not be more perfect; not a single cloud is in the sky. You close your eyes and bask in the beauty.

“We’re lost again, aren’t we?”

Nitori blushes. “N-No. I’m taking a detour.”

“What kind of detour takes us to the lakeside?”

“Maybe you should lead,” she grumbles, sitting down on a fallen tree trunk.

“Too much work,” you say, sitting down next to her.

“So.”

“Fa-ti-la-do.”

You’re met with a punch to the side. Honestly, you deserved it, but you’d do it again.

“What really happened? To, uh, her.”

“A true love’s kiss healed her, we got married, and everybody lived happily ever after.”

Nitori scowls. “If you don’t want to talk about it, just say so.”

“There’s nothing to talk about.”

Then did she...um. Y’know. Is she gone?”

“Dahlia’s dead, yes.”

“Then.” Nitori struggles to find something to focus her eyes on. Her gaze wanders from everything in between the sky and the ground. “Those humans. Did you do what you said you did?”

“I did.”

“And?”

“And what?”

“That’s it?”

“What were you expecting? ‘This god doth repent for his sin that cometh from tribulation’? ‘Everyone revived and nobody got hurt and it was just a prank’? No way.”

“Then are you ever going to forgive them for what they did?”

[ ] “Yeah, I should. I’m over it now.”
[ ] “I already did, but I like being petty.”
[ ] “Eventually. Maybe in a million years.”
[ ] “Nah. I’m not nice enough.”
[X] “Nah. I’m not nice enough.”

Don't forgive those that acted against us. Their descendants are a different matter.
[X] Didn't you heard miss curse? I'm bad at letting go.

How much of his attitude is the reason of his grudge and how much is a consequence of it?
[X] “I already did, but I like being petty.”
[x] “Nah. I’m not nice enough.”

So people create a god, give him a maiden as a "sacrifice", said god spares her, fugs her and then those people kill her off?

That was dumb of them to do.
[X] “Nah. I’m not nice enough.”
[X] “Nah. I’m not nice enough.”
[ ] “I already did, but I like being petty.”
[X] “Nah. I’m not nice enough.”
Never forgive, never forget.

“Nah. I’m not nice enough. If they wanted kindness and forgiveness, then maybe they shouldn’t have been so fucking stupid. But I don’t regret what I did. I’d even do it again if I could!”

“Be careful not to cut yourself with all that edge, okay?”

“Sorry, I already have and now I can’t stop the angst from flowing.” To demonstrate, you slice down your forearm with your metaphorical edge. It rips an artery open, spraying your blood and guts all over the place. You coat the grass a lovely shade of crimson. “Nitori, heeelp! All this symbolic blood is flying everywhere! I can't stop being edgy!”

“This is your literal blood, you buffoon. Stop it—ack—you’re getting it over my clothes!”

“Aren’t your clothes waterproof? What’s the big deal?”

“That’s not the problem!” Nitori says, shielding her eyes from being shot by the constant stream of red ejecting from your open veins.

“Then what is?”

“It’s disgusting!”

“Disgusting is a temporal word.”

“I’ll show you temporal, you sonofa—”

But before Nitori could finish her sentence, you give her a gentle push. She yelps and teeters off the gentle incline of the land. With a ceremonious splash, she tumbles straight into the lakeside. She resurfaces, a glower on her face.

Just what are you doing?

“Cleaning you. You said it was disgusting, right?”

“That gives you no excuse to push me straight into the water. Even if I am a kappa.”

“Here, then I’ll jump in too if that makes you feel any better.”

“It really doesn’t.”

“Okay, well I’m doing it anyway.” You do a running start, building some speed as you sprint down the grassy hill. You can hear Nitori complaining as you’re halfway through the air, but it’s already way too late. Of course, you plunge straight into the water and push Nitori back with a pretty sick wave.

Then you realize something. You thrash your arms about wildly. Floundering about, you scream, “Nitoooori, heeeeeelp! I can’t swim!”

“Really?”

“No. I’m fine. Not that it would be a big deal if I drowned.”

“I don’t get you.” Nitori crosses her arms. In the water. Right. At that moment, you’re reminded again that she is, very obviously, a kappa. “So are you going to act this way forever? The secret’s out.”

“Act like what?”

“You know. Like you’re a dumb wolf tengu. Like you're not a god.”

[ ] But you are a dumb wolf tengu. Minus the dumb.
[ ] It’s more interesting this way. Besides, you don’t even have a shrine or followers anymore.
[ ] You’ll stop acting. Soon. Tomorrow. Later.

“Know what? Yeah, you might be right. Since you’re the expert here, why don’t you tell me how I’m supposed to act? What’s the difference between a dumb wolf tengu and a god? Did I forget anything important? What’s the best ratio of god to wolf?”

Nitori wags her finger. She sticks her chin up to the sky and says, “Tut-tut. Maybe you should act like a real god. Aren’t you just putting off your responsibilities until later? Get your act together.”

“Next thing you’ll tell me that I need to clean my room and study to get into god college and get a job. Let me live my own life, Mom.”

“I swear, kids these days. They’re all just—oh.” The kappa stumbles over her next few words. “Wait. Aren’t you like a thousand years old?”

“Aren’t you?”

“I’m not even a hundred,” says Nitori, an uneasy smile on her face.

“Whaaat! You’re just a fetus!” Grinning, you paddle over to the kappa to pat her on the head. Of course, you almost drown but it’s well worth your effort because Nitori’s snarling at you red-faced. Naturally, you do what you do best. “That’s so cute! If I didn’t need both my hands to keep afloat, I’d pinch your cheeks.”

“O-Oh yeah? Well, how old are you?”

“A little too old to play around at the lake, haha.” You pick yourself up out of the water and shake yourself dry. It doesn’t really help because the water’s clinging to your robes. With how soaked it is, it’s like wearing a sack of bricks. “If I had to guess, I’m maybe approaching two?”

“...Two?” Nitori blinks. “Just two?”

“Yeah. Two as in, two thousand.”

“Oh,” she says. “Before, I was just exaggerating when I meant you were a thousand, but I can’t believe that you’re actually—”

“—old, yeah. Believe me, I know. You don’t have to remind me.”

Nitori looks up at you from the water. She has only her head exposed above the surface. Then, tilting her head down into the lake, she blows idle bubbles into the water. “So you aren’t worried?”

“What about?”

“Disappearing. Don’t gods need faith to live?”

“Oh, Nitori. You innocent little thing, you. I have faith—loads of it. See, here’s the thing. How can I disappear if I believe in myself? I’m my best follower and disciple. Y’know. It’s the whole, ‘I think, therefore I am’ clause.”

She looks like she’s about to throw up. “I can see why you don’t have any other followers. You’re just a dick.”

“Pretty much. Not like anybody can do anything about it.” You let a devilish smile creep up your face. “I’m a god. It’s just fact that I’m better than you—and anybody else.”

“See, this is why nobody likes you.”

“Dahlia did.”

“And look what happened to—ah.” Nitori dips her entire head into the water and submerges herself for a good ten seconds before resurfacing with a pained, apologetic face. “Sorry.”

You throw her an innocent li’l smile. Baring your teeth, you say, “I’ll remember that.”

Nitori freezes up in distress. Fear and shame are written all over her face and, for a moment, she’s taken aback. She, like many others before her, probably forgot that you are a god—and a real one.

“See?” you say, pointing a finger at her. “This is why I shouldn’t be serious. People start acting like that. It’s uncomfortable to watch.”

“I wasn’t ready, okay? You just suddenly stopped being a ‘dumb wolf tengu.’” She pulls at one of her twintails restlessly. The girl must be rattled as hell because she’s pulling on them like no tomorrow. “So is that just an act, or what?”

“A little. Pretending to be dumb is a whole lotta fun, so I just get into character, y’know?”

Nitori throws her hands up in the air. “You’re a freak.”

“Yeaaah.” Your eyes wander over to the sun. You probably should stop doing that, but you just can’t get enough of being blind as fuck. “What now?”

“I dunno. Were we supposed to be doing something?”

“Dunno. I forgot already.” You put an idle hand to your chin. “Oh. I know. Nitori, we should go hassle people.”

“Uh, sure?”

“We should go bother that one rabbit in the bamboo forest. It’ll be great. She’s great.”

“Which one?” asks Nitori.

“Oh, you know, the one with the ears and a tail.”

“Ears and a tail? Okay, gotcha. That narrows it down to—oh, would you look at that.” The kappa puts her hands to her hips and scowls. “Literally every rabbit in the forest.”

You wave her off nonchalantly. “Don’t worry about it. I’ll know it’s her when I see her.”

Nitori cocks an eyebrow. “And if you don’t?”

“That won’t happen, trust me.”

“Trusting you sounds like the worst thing anybody could do. How long has it been since you’ve seen the rabbit?”

“A couple, maybe.”

“A couple what?” she asks, a cross look on her face.

“Uh. A couple hundred years. That's it.”

Nitori puts a hand to her face. “A couple hundred? What do you mean, 'That's it'? Just—ugh, never mind. How are you even going to find her? Who knows what happened to that rabbit by now.”

“She’ll be definitely still be at her place ‘cause she’s the oldest rabbit I know. Girl must be like a thousand or something now. Never moved and never will—not for anybody or anything.”

“Well, if you say so.”

Nitori jumps right out of the water and onto the land. The water just slips down her aquamarine dress. Damn, that’s convenient as heck. Meanwhile, you’re still in your waterlogged robes, feeling like a thousand pounds.

“You,” you say, pointing to the kappa. “Can you make my clothes do that?”

“I would, but it’s just the dress fabric that makes it work. It ain't magic, so I can’t just give your clothes the ability to be waterproof.”

“Oh.” You clap your hands in realization. “Magic. Right. I have that, don’t I?”

With a snap of your fingers, a billowing gust blows across the lakeside. It’s no cyclone but it’ll do. You’re not exactly aiming to destroy everything that moves. Against the wind, Nitori pulls down at the hem of her skirt, trying, but also failing, to hide her undergarments. She’s understandably glowering at you the entire time. You don’t really blame her.

“There,” you say, inspecting your robes. It’s a little ruffled but otherwise okay. “I’m all dry now.”

“God,” Nitori groans. “You would use a blinding gust like that to dry your clothes. How did I expect anything less?”

You just shrug.

---------

The thickets overwhelm you. In a way, it’s humbling to see yourself as nothing but a speck amongst a forest that seems to continue in perpetuity. What are you but one being in a forest of many others? You are renewed—a new god you are! In the forest full of green and green and green and green and—

“We’re lost again, aren’t we?”

“You see, I knew how to get to her home and—”

“—Her old home,” she says, correcting you.

“Yeah—her old home—but I didn’t expect that she doesn’t live there anymore. Yep. And now I don’t know how to get out of here.”

“Again, it’s been a hundred years. I didn’t count on you remembering in the first place.” Nitori lets loose a sigh. “Now what?”

“Maybe she’ll be here if I call her name.”

“What are you crazy? There’s no way she’ll be—”

“TEWI,” you shout. “YOU HERE?”

A muffled “WHAAAAAT?” echoes in the distance. You hear something rustle through a couple of bushes—something rabbit-like. Something Tewi-like.

"Would you look at that," you say, glancing at Nitori.

The kappa, saying nil, just brings her hands up to her temples and massages them tenderly.

Tewi, her dress slightly scuffed with scratches and dirt, arrives at the scene. Welp. She’s actually here. Didn't expect that. Must have been the will of the gods. All you, baby.

“Whoa, it's a wolf and a kappa. You’re an unlikely duo to find in the forest. How’s it going?”

“Not much,” you say, taking a step forward. “Anyway, just my luck—”

“Ah, don’t step there.” Tewi cuts you off, jabbing her finger at the ground. “Just warning you, but there’s a huge pitfall there. Made it myself! I’m saving that for a good buddy of mine when she comes back home."

You nod. “I see.”

“Yep.”

You want to. You really, really want to. Tewi just told you not to—and by that logic, you mustn’t. But if you mustn’t, then that means you want to. Damn. Since it’s Tewi, you’ll make an exception this time. You’re compelled to do something stupid, but you can hold off until later. Like a good boy, you’ll wait. Right now, you have rabbits to bother. You take a step to the side and skirt across the pitfall.

“So anyway—what was I saying?” Tewi snaps her fingers. “Oh, yeah. What are you two up to? Lookin’ for the doctor? I can take ya there.”

“Actually,” you say, “I was looking for you.”

Tewi cocks her head to the side and, with an arch of her eyebrows, stares at you lamely. “Pardon. Did you say you were looking for li’l ol’ me? Aww gosh, you flatter me! But what would you ever need from—oooh. Waaait.” The rabbit does a hurried walk over to you, a rigid frown on her face. Gingerly, she leans in close to your head and takes a whiff. She reels back immediately after. “What the hell? Hakurou?”

You shrug. “Who?”

Don’t give me that bullcrap,” she snaps. “I know it’s you. I can tell by your smell.”

Nitori blinks. “His smell? Why do you know his—”

“—Hush, kid,” says Tewi. She closes her eyes for a bit, pinching the bridge of her nose. “I need some time to process.”

“Yeah. Let the adults talk now.”

“What—what—argh, fine. Do whatever you want.” Nitori turns away and walks the other direction, sulking. But then she walks immediately into a trap, the flimsy ground below her collapsing as soon as she sets foot on it.

Tewi walks over to Nitori's newfound pitfall. “Oh. Right, I forgot about that one. Uh, you good?”

I’m fucking dandy. Don’t—don’t help me up,” she says gruffly. “I’ll do it myself.”

“Sure. If that’s what ya want. But back to the original point. What are you—” Tewi points over to the girl in the pitfall, and then you, “—and you doing here?”

“We came to play.”

“Hakurou, I haven’t seen you in over a hundred years.

“Like I said, we came to play.”

“Hakurou, you dip, where have you been!? You disappear and come back to play? I went nuts trying to find you and—and—and——ahem.” Tewi takes a slow breath. “I guess that doesn’t really matter. I didn’t really expect anything less from you. So yeah. Since you want to play, we can head over to my place once that kappa frees herself.”

“I’m out already, thank you,” Nitori grunts, inching out of the pitfall. She worms her way up pitifully, a bit of dirt on her cheek. She heaves on the floor, struggling to catch her breath.

“Great!” Tewi smiles, doing a little hop in place. “Now we can go have some tea. Master might join us too, if she isn’t busy.”

“You have a master? Didn’t you always say that you’d rather die than have someone lord all over you?” Suspiciously, you thrust a finger at the rabbit. “Who are you?

“I’m still Tewi, thanks. Things have changed, Hakurou! We have a lot to catch up on. Enough talk, we have plenty of time to do that when we’re inside. Let’s go before it gets dark. Nasty things have been coming out at night lately.”

“Really now?”

“Then... what about your friend?” asks Nitori, still a little winded. “You know, the one you laid the trap out for? Is she gonna be alright?”

“Oh, she’ll be fine. Reisen’s a big girl. There’s not way that would set her back. She’s used to it.”

“...Sure.”

Tewi takes you to a ridiculously huge mansion. You swear that she was leading you in circles—but that’s why people call this area the “Bamboo Forest of the Lost” huh? Before you know it, Tewi throws you and Nitori into a room before disappearing off into the hallways. You take a peek out into the hallway. If you thought the mansion from the outside is huge, then the interior is huuuuuuuuuuge. You’re talking space-time-continuum-breaking levels of huge. A stray rabbit, wearing a dress similar to Tewi’s, steals a glance at you before scurrying away into the unknown.

“So what, are you screwing this kappa’s brains out?” Tewi returns with a plate carrying a teapot and three cups. Grinning, she pours you and Nitori some before sitting down at her seat.

“Eeew.” Nitori makes an unpleasant face. “I’d do nothing of the sort. Can you even imagine doing… that with him?”

“Sure,” Tewi says nonchalantly. “Mostly because we’ve done it before.”

Nitori spans around to face you so fast you swear she got whiplash. ”What.”

[ ] “What?”
[ ] “WHAT?”
[ ] Feign surprise.
[ ] Stifle laughter.

“Weeeell,” you say, voice laced with unmitigated smug. You let your boisterous smile creep up your face. “I know you’re at that age where you’re getting curious and I think that it’s about time that we should have a talk.”

Tewi erupts into a fit of giggles, smothering her laughter with a hand over her mouth.

“Oh my fucking god,” Nitori groans.

“So, listen to me here: when a man and a woman love each other very much, they want to do… things to each other. Like touching. Or even something more than that.”

Nitori is beet red. She’s either furious or embarrassed but, honestly, she’s probably both. “This is obscene. Stop. I already know what it is.”

“So we had sex. Sex is when a male takes his erect penis and then inserts it into the woman’s vagina. And we did a lot of that. Back to back.”

“Stoooooop.”

“We fucked like rabbits, even.”

Tewi points to herself. “Excuse me, I am a rabbit, thank you very much.”

“Cool. I’m a wolf,” you say, “and I think the simile is ruined now.”

“Ooh, what about, ‘You ate me up,’ or something?” Tewi puts her hands to her face and mock-blushes. “The big wolf gobbled up the poor, defenseless rabbit, having his way with her until morning.”

“Again.” Nitori pauses to suck in some air. “What.”

“So eating someone up,” you say, “is a euphemism for—”

“You.” Nitori glares at you. “Be quiet for a second.”

Tewi gasps. “Oh, how rude of me. Of course you’re upset! Would you like to be invited next time?”

“No no,” Nitori says, shaking her head violently. “Nonono. No. NO. It’s cool. Thanks but no thanks. Nuh-uh.”

“Yeah. That’s the reaction I’m looking for.” Turning to Tewi, you ask, “Doesn’t it make you want to tease her?”

“A little, yeah.” Tewi nods sagely. “The more she tries to hides her embarrassment, the more I want to keep going.”

“You know what?” Nitori heaves a sigh. “I don’t even care anymore.”

-------

It’s strange how quickly time passes. You spend most of the evening catching up with Tewi. Apparently, she has a master now. Who woulda thought? But even stranger, she’s working in this weird master hierarchy because her master has a master too. Tewi’s master’s name is Eiren Yagokoro—doesn’t really ring a bell to you, but Tewi’s master’s master is a whole ‘nother story. You know Kaguya Houraisan—maybe not intimately, but you’ve heard of her.

Several conversations and a teapot later, Nitori had fallen asleep. Tewi waves a hand over Nitori’s face, waiting for a response. She gets none.

“Looks like she’s asleep,” you say.

“Astute observation.” Tewi rolls her eyes. She lightly prods Nitori’s cheek with a delicate finger, to which the kappa responds by rolling to her side, still asleep. “She’s probably tired from all the yelling she did earlier.”

“She had to spend an entire day with me, so I don’t really blame her. It’s probably all my fault.”

“Probably?”

“Okay. It’s all my fault. Let’s see. We met today when I was still in bed with someone. Then I stared at the sun until I was blind, I sexually harassed some tengu, found some humans and let Nitori deal with it, pretended to die after trading fatal blows from some wild youkai, hung out at the curse goddess’s place until she kicked me out and—”

“Hold on,” Tewi interrupts. “You said, ‘wild youkai’? Where was that?”

“Near the Youkai Mountain. Why?”

“Just thinking. We had a couple youkai stray into the forest lately.”

“I don’t suppose they were friendly.”

“Nah. We dealt with ‘em but all the other rabbits are scared to death right now. They won’t step foot outside Eientei.”

“Is that why you were outside? Placing traps?” you say.

“I mean, sure, but that’s just something to do to pass the time. Force of habit, I guess. But come to think of it—” Tewi pauses, hmm-ing to herself as she stares real hard at you. “I can’t believe you found me outside in the forest. Did you really find me miraculously like that, just to come over and play?”

“Boredom works in mysterious ways.”

“Somehow, I doubt that boredom helped you find me outside, of all places. It’s nothing short of miraculous that we chanced upon each other today.”

“I am a god, you know. Or wait, no, I was a god.”

“How do you even stop being a god?” says Tewi. “Don’t you just fizzle away if people stop believing in you?”

“Maybe if you’re some greenhorn god. They have to worry about ‘faith’ and ‘miracles’ and ‘forgiveness.’ Now, gods born out of fear, born out of legend—those are the gods that remain. I happen to be one of those gods.”

“So. What’s the difference between the you that was a god and the you right now?”

You bare your fangs and grin. “I’m much stronger.”

“So why not just go back to being a god?”

“I gave up on being a god forever when she died. But I was naive. I forgot that forever is a really, really long time. I can barely force myself to even care anymore. Still, sometimes I feel like I’m trampling on her memory—like I’m doing something wrong.”

“Don’t worry,” says Tewi. “You’ve done things much more worse than that.”

“Yeah,” you laugh. “I know. So, what do you think? I wanted to, maybe, be a god again. Start new. Again, maybe. I don’t know. Still on the fence about it.”

She just shrugs. “Well, go for it. The only thing that’s holding you back is, well, you. If you don’t feel like doing it, then don’t. I’m not your mom. Do whatever you want.”

“Sure. Then if I do decide, do you want to be a follower?”

“Sure. Wait, actually.” Tewi blinks. “So what does that mean, exactly?”

“I can shake a stick around with a smile on my face and then something ridiculous might happen. Should I wear a silly costume with detached sleeves? A yellow-and-white dress, maybe?”

“I’ll promise to be your follower if you don’t do that,” Tewi says. “I’m still not sold, Hakurou! There’s nothing in it for me.”

“Okay. What if you shake a stick around and wear a yellow-and-white dress? You could fight youkai under my name too.”

“I’m not looking for a part time job.”

“Okay then. I can offer you my protection—”

“—Mmm.”

“—You can pray to me—”

“—I wouldn’t.”

“I guess I can have sex with you again and—”

“Okay, deal.” Tewi says hastily. She leans forward over the table, propping herself up with her elbows. “Did I mention that you should go and be a god again? No ulterior motives or anything, but that would be a great idea. You were good at it before—you should do it again. Yep.”

“At sex or being a god?”

“Yeah.”

“That was smooth.”

“Smooth is my middle name,” replies Tewi, scooting herself closer to you. She then hops onto your lap and leans back onto your chest. “Now make some space for me. I’d like some attention.”

“Sure.” You move yourself slightly back to make room for the rabbit. She giggles in self-satisfaction as she secures you as a seat. “But as I was saying, I wanted to try being a god again because of all the stray youkai roaming around. Call it divine intuition, but it’s going to be an issue in the near future.”

“I can believe it. It’ll turn into an incident sooner or later.”

“What were you gonna do if you met one of those youkai outside?”

Tewi mulls over the question, swaying her head side to side while in thought. “I’d probably run like hell. Sure, I could just fight but that’s just not my thing.”

“I see.”

“What, you worried about this cutie-patootie rabbit?”

“You’d sooner die of loneliness than to a stray youkai.”

“You give me too much credit!” Tewi giggles, fooling around with your hand. She grabs it and guides you to pat her head. “A poor, weak ol’ defenseless rabbit like me can only run and hide.”

“Oh, but what about the time where you clawed that one—”

“Doesn’t count. But anyway,” she says, turning to the door, “you all can come out now, by the way.”

A herd of rabbits inch out from behind the door. They push one rabbit out to the front while the rest hide behind each other.

“Um, hello,” the forerunner rabbit mumbles, refusing to make eye contact with you.

“Hi,” you reply, still petting Tewi.

And then the conversation ends. You stare hard at the rabbit in front, mostly because it’s entertaining to watch her squirm under your gaze.

“He won’t bite,” Tewi says.

“Much,” you helpfully add, earning an elbow from Tewi. “What’s your name, rabbit?”

“Mimura!” squeaks one of the smaller rabbits in the back. She’s promptly shushed and herded back into the crowd of rabbits.

“I’m C-Chie,” stammers the rabbit in the front. “...Nice to meet you.”

“A pleasure.”

“Tewi,” calls out another rabbit, “aren’t you scared?”

“About what?” asks Tewi.

“Being, err, eaten and stuff.”

“Oh, you can’t be serious!” Tewi doubles over in laughter, slapping her hand on the table. “Him? Eat me? Maybe he would’ve two thousand years ago. If he really wanted to eat me, he wouldn’t have waited hundreds of years.”

You grin. “Well, actually, I alrea—” Tewi slaps a hand over your mouth. “Mmmph.”

“See? He’s a good wolf. Won’t even bite my hand off when I do this.”

“Really?” Chie hesitantly takes a step forward. Suddenly, the constant hushed voices are silenced. The group of rabbits behind her all gasp as she takes another step. This repeats until she’s at your side, extending a meek hand toward you. The rest of the rabbits don’t dare to breathe. As far as you can tell, Chie isn’t breathing either. In fact, she doesn’t even have her eyes open. The poor girl’s shutting her eyes and poking her arm out like you’re about to explode at any given moment.

You set Tewi down beside you, to which she voices a complaint. Now’s not the time to listen, though.

Chie thinks that you’re going to give her a friendly handshake. How cute. Doesn’t she know that you’re a fearsome, malicious god? You have all the power in the world. A little rabbit like her is nothing to you.

Cue the secret handshake.

You extend a hand out—Chie peeks an eye open, feeling some movement. Gingerly, she reaches closer, but you pull back, only briefly brushing hands with the rabbit. She gasps. Looking a bit flustered, Chie hurriedly leans forward to grab your escaping hand before it’s too late, but you’re too quick, too hand-nimble to get caught. You make a left. She copies your movement, adapting quickly to the situation. Your hand dodges past her fingers by only an inch. Of course, that was all calculated. You’re a pro, after all. You’re always changing the game on Chie and she can’t keep up. It’s obvious she can’t—she’s just a rookie. Doesn’t have any experience in the paint. You’ve got years, maybe even a thousand of them, over her.

“Hakurou,” Tewi says. “You’re doing the secret handshake?”

“I’m doing the secret handshake,” you confirm.

“How is that a secret handshake?” asks one of the rabbits in the back.

“It’s a secret handshake because she doesn’t know when I’m gonna do it.”

Chie juts out her lower lip as she realizes that she’s being openly teased. She takes a step forward in a vain attempt to grab your hand. As she chases after you, you dance a circle around her. The more you sneak away just out of her reach, the more Chie tries to get your hand. She lunges, but you let her fall face-first into your chest. You wrap your arms around the girl and give her a good hug. Once again, you confirm that rabbits are indeed soft and fluffy.

You raise up a hand, still mid-hug, to Tewi. She reciprocates automatically with a high-five, thus concluding the secret handshake.

Save for the loud clap of the high-five, the room is dead silent. Chie is frozen in place, probably too confused or scared to even move. Ten or so rabbits stare at you wordlessly. You stare at them back. Chie is staring at the floor and Tewi is trying her hardest to keep a solemn face.

“That looks fun!” giggles a rabbit. “Me next! Me next!”

“Mimura—” another rabbit says, but it’s too late. Mimura starts a movement. Just moments after, you are now covered in rabbits. The quiet from before erupts into raucous laughter as the rabbits all climb over each other to touch you.

“Mmmrgh,” groans Nitori. She wakes from her well-deserved nap, blinking as her eyes focus in on the commotion. “Annnnd what the hell did I just wake up to?”

“We’re putting aside our differences to show that Wolf and Rabbit don’t have to be natural enemies.”

Nitori’s giving you the look again—the look of I-don’t-give-a-crap. “Uh-huh.”

“You see, times have changed. I’d much rather cuddle with a bunny than eat her—but only in the literal sense.” You group hug a bunch of little rabbits. They squeal and giggle as you swing them all around. “Youkai don’t need to eat humans and humans don’t have to hunt youkai. Youkai can love humans and gods can love youkai.”

“Wait. And your point is?” says the kappa.

“The point is, get into the bunny-pile and hug these cute little creatures before I make you do it.”

“You know you want to,” Tewi adds before being consumed by the growing pile of rabbits.

“Well...” Nitori glances away, seriously mulling over her thoughts. You and the rest of the rabbits stare at her all the while. She reluctantly accepts defeat. “Fine. Have at me.”

And so Nitori too joins the fluffathon.

You high-five all the willing rabbits. “Coexistence yo.”

-------

Eve hits, then night, and all the rabbits are tuckered out. They all have a surprising amount of energy or maybe it just seems that way because there are so many of them. But the sun is well under the horizon and all the good little bunnies have gone to sleep.

The fabled ‘sleepover’ that all the young bunnies clamored for is now a reality. You have a bunny napping on you, using your lap as a pillow. Another one’s leaning on your shoulder. Nitori’s face-first into a pillow. You’re pretty sure that you’re trapped but whatever. It’s a soft kind of trapped which is, as far as you’re concerned, the best kind of “trapped” there is.

“Hakurou,” Tewi whispers, careful not to wake the napping rabbits. “Having fun being covered in bunnies?”

“Yeah. These kids are so soft and fluffy—I just want to pet them forever. How do you get anything done here?”

“We don’t.”

“Oh.”

“Yeaaah. The real work gets done outside Eientei, away from all the rabbits. They’re little bundles of energy, all of ‘em. The only exception is on days where clientele come visit our master. Then they get real quiet and hide.” Tewi smiles, brushing aside a stray lock of hair on your lap-rabbit’s face. The sleeping rabbit stirs briefly before settling down again. “But I’m surprised how quickly they took to you.”

“I’ve always had a way with rabbits.”

“Including me?”

“I sure hope so.”

“Then you should prove it.” Tewi has an impish grin on her face when she leans close to your face, putting her hands on your shoulders.

You inch a little closer to breathe into her ear. She shivers a little, and you whisper to her this:

“Where’s the bathroom? I need to go.”

“Pffft.” She puts a hand over her mouth, quivering as she struggles to hold in her laughter. “I bet all the girls swoon after hearing that one.”

“It’s my favorite line for when I need to use the bathroom.” You give her a weak smile. “So where is it?”

“It’s down the hall and to the left. Should be at the end of the corridor.” Tewi gives you a knowing look. “Though, you’re heading elsewhere, aren’t you?”

For some reason, going for a piss feels like the most promising option in this scenario. I'm pretty sure I'd always vote for a toilet option though.
[x] You’re off to make that shrine of yours.

Let's make a doghouse.

Its going to be the best shrine. I don't know how, but it will be. Maybe make attendance mandatory.
[x] You'd never lie.

I want to follow this storyline to see how a visit to eientei would go.

Also, we don't know where to put a shrine. They're usually on top of mountains or cliffs as if to make them closer to heaven, but since this guy is here he can put it whenever

N the bamboo forest sounds like a good place though, if hard to find. Give some woodcutters and farmers a blessing, guide people to the good doctor and promote coexistence!

We should probably look into locations tomorrow anyway.

We should build our shrine somewhere really obnoxious.

Like Kiene's head.

Not having any further updates is a mistake.
