“That's alright,” you murmur, “I don't exactly feel up to moving about much yet.” Although you probably could if you wanted to, it's not exactly a lie - you do still feel a bit dizzy. “Besides,” you add, “I have a lovely nurse looking after me, why would I want to move?”
Letty gives you a lopsided grin and raps one knuckle against your head in a in response. “My,” she says, “Aren't you the smooth talker, only just up and already with the pickup lines. Still, I suppose I should be flattered - I don't get to talk to very many people much normally.”
“Oh?” You look at the lavender-haired woman curiously. She looks normal too you... well, aside from maybe the hair color, but given how many people in the big cities dye their hair it's not impossible that she could have been able to do the same in Gensokyo. “I can't see why not, you're not a ten-foot tall man eating monster after all.”
“Oh,” Letty smirks, “I haven't eaten a man in years. I'm on a diet after all.” You start in shock before realizing she's joking and settle back down. “Wound a little tight?” She asks, “Although it is hardly surprising, everything has happened so fast after all.”
“Yeah... Just a week ago I was a normal, average guy who probably wouldn't have amounted to much.” you say, “Now I'm living with five ladies... well, four ladies and one girl at least.” Glancing over at the window you stare at the field and forest outside. “When they told me there were youkai in gensokyo who ate people... I guess I was kind of terrified. I didn't know what to expect, monsters I suppose.” Turning back you smile at Letty, “I didn't expect five normal women, that's for sure!”
“Normal?” Letty asks, and you could swear she's trying not to snicker. “How do you mean normal?”
“Well..” you reply, “You know... normal. You all look like any other girl in the world, you know? Even Keine, and I already know she must be a youkai.... Still, it's weird they sent four humans and a you-” You pause as Letty gives up trying to hold her snickering in and starts laughing, her hands pulled in to cover her mouth. “Er... Miss Letty? What's, uhm, what's so funny?”
“Oh, nothing dear, nothing.” She manages to reign in her laughing and smiles at you, “You know, I was horribly afraid that this was going to be a disaster from the start. So far you've shown me that, at least, there's a chance that I might actually enjoy this.” her smile turns into a smirk, “Especially since these 'Air Conditioners' mean it's cold enough for me to actually be awake. Normally I spend most of my time sleeping, now I may actually get to enjoy the other seasons for once.”
You frown, “Wait... what do you mean by that?” you ask, only to have Letty stand up.
“That, I think, is enough question time for now mister Ryogi,” she says gently, “You'll find out soon enough anyway, at least let us keep out secrets a little longer hm?” She smirks, “it'll be more fun that way, don't you think? Besides, it's getting close to mealtime - and none of us know how to operate your kitchen, so you're going to have to make a move yourself anyway.”
Sighing you push yourself up and off of the sofa. She's right - the miracles of a modern oven cooker could probably kill any of the girls and you really didn't want to think what would happen if any of them tried to use the microwave... Mentally you note to teach them how to use the oven, at least, as soon as was convenient. For now though, it was time to rummage through the freezer and find something suitable... actually, thinking about it, you could probably teach one of the girls now...
[ ] See if Keine is free to be taught,
[ ] Check if Meiling wants to help cook,
[ ] Ask Komachi if she wants to try,
[ ] Offer to show Marisa how to use the kitchen
[ ] Maybe Letty would be interested in cooking.
