"Wait! Meiling, everyone is st----"
Before you can finish your ill attempt to stop the healthy, female youkai, a mild push is felt against your moist lips and the wrapping of arms around your long neck.
Releasing her supple lips from yours, a tiny exhale from both you and Hong is let out. A pause, maybe another awkward silence, lingers again. "You aren’t human, Hong." You state in a drunk bravado, followed by a shit eating grin. The beer is know in control, you fear. Hong stares into your eyes only to realize what she as done.
Apparently so embarrassed by her actions, her accent disappears and her heavenly voice returns again. "I am so sorry sir, I over stepping my boundaries and, and..."
She trails off, but yet oddly enough, still doesn’t release her arms which are still wrapped gently around your neck.
Your brain rushes for a answer, "Its awwwright" you finally manage to blurt out.
But it is all to no avail. Hong Meiling has already passed out. Once again, you paid more attention to your brain than the girl. You shift your look down.
Her head rests softly against your collarbones. Flowing, soft red hair flows down her back, her breathing light, mounds of feminine beauties still press against you. Womanly curves...Your member stirs.
After placing your arms around her lower back, your past self slowly drifts off into sleep.
You see the buddle lowly fade back into its translucent nature at the same time.
As the bubble floats away from you, you notice the other countless bubbles starting to combine into a massive, single bubble. Like the "world" you are in ,the sight is truly indescribable. Once it finished merging, you moved toward it. The dirt began to be kicked up as the wind began to howl, creating a mild sandstorm in the sky.
As you near the massive bubble, images of countless images of moments you encountered in Gensokyo flashed before your eyes, like that stupid grad video from Grade 9.
Eirin laughing heartily with Reisen, Keine head butting you, a silver knife planted dangerously close to your face the morning after the drinking party, Marisa getting
dumped into the lake, Patchouli resting over her books. You cannot help but smile stupidly as even more images appear and disappear on the screen. Alice, Shanghai, and Hourai fishing at
the accursed lake, that glutton ghost chasing after Mystia in the Human Village, Chen sleeping on Ran’s many tails, and finally Yuka handing you a sunflower with a warm(?) smile.
So many images and the memories remind of you of how Gensokyo is a dangerous, yet amazing place.
Just as the viewing ends, you suddenly find yourself staring at the same patch of lush, green grass that surrounds your feet. The smell of scrambled eggs is replaced by the smell
of incense. As you lift your head again, you notice a certain important youkai approaching you from the left. It is none other than Yukari, followed by Reimu. "The exit is almost complete, shit disturber" states Reimu.
"Good to hear, Miko." you state nonchalantly, smirking at the same time. Yukari yawns before she replies "You positive you want to go back, human? I wouldn't mind having a pet..."
You just really with a confident yes and a sigh as that seems like the only reasonable response to her offer. Shifting your gaze behind you, you eye Scarlet Devil Mansion and notice Flandre, Patchouli and Koakuma looking out the open western style window. "BYE MR.DUMBASS! BYE!" she wails loudly, Patchouli simply waves, as does Koakuma. You hear the familiar chuckle of Sakuya and her mistress Remilla.
After a quick facepalm, you inform Yukari and Reimu to open the entrance over the accursed lake. As the human and youkai prepare, a resounding voice of a certain fairy is heard over the lake.
"WAIT! MY HUMAN!" That voice belongs to Cirno.
She tackles you with such speed you are flung back at least 10feet. A couple of gasps are heard through the onlookers as you and Cirno tumble across the grass.
You manage to pull yourself up off the ground, despite a few sores, walk over to Cirno, who is genuflecting. "Cirno, why did you do that?" You ask, rather clueless.
Between her sobs and hiccups, Cirno manages to spill out her typical rambling. "Why are you leaving my human? We still have a ton of places to go to, and fun to have, and and
you're the most awesome human so we can defeat some more frogs together and...and." You notice the little (9) is really broken up about this whole ordeal. That makes it really
hard to find the words. Not to mention, she most likely forget you were coming here and spent that time looking for you everywhere in a panic. You bite your tongue. Just then, Cirno forcibly tugs you over to the people you have meet together over the time you spent here.
"CHINA CHINA! Please convince my human to stay! China!" Cirno says through sobs and tears. China simply kneels down and gives her a hug.
Distraught and still confused, Cirno pulls you to Keine next. "SENSEI! Please explain with big words why my favouritest human cant leave!"
Keine does not say a word as she adjusts her hat and gives you a sad, yet knowing look through her eyes. Still determined, Cirno now tugs you over to
nearby beach in the attempt to abduct you. However, even you can tell she is so broken up that she has lost the mindset needed to fly. "...Cirno"
is all you can manage to bring yourself to say.
Gasping between her sobs and hiccups, Cirno says "Please, my human take me with you!" "I don’t want these fun times to end, ever!"
"Cirno," you start, "I'm sorry, but I have to go back to where I came" Continuing, "I wish I could take you with me, however you would cause
problems like my appearance in Gensokyo....I am out of place here. I understand that know." Cirno is just looking up at you with her icy blue eyes, with
cold streams of tears still falling down her cheeks.
"Here, I want you to have this." Carefully, you remove the necklace given to you by Patchouli. Its not like you have a use for it back home, but it was given to you to protect you none the less. Obviously, Cirno and Patchouli can defend themselves so a item
like this is useless to them, in retrospect. But at least even Cirno should understand why you are giving this to her, you state mentally to yourself.
You gently grab her arm and place in necklace in her hand and close its open palm.
"I'm sure this last a lot longer than me here" You say with a childish grin on your face.
Cirno rubs her eyes with her arm and lets out one final sob.
"MY human! I will give you this is return!"
She swiftly removes her blue hair ribbon, and places it into your open palm.
It feels unearthly cool to the touch just like Cirno, but enjoyable bearable.
Cirno sure looks a lot less child-like without the hair ribbon, you think.
You ruffle Cirno's hair one last time, affectionately as always, Cirno grinning happily as well. You turn 180 degrees and start to walk back towards the entrance;
all while tying the ribbon to your wrist.
You don’t look behind you, but you are sure Cirno is following as well.
"The entrance is finished" yawned an tired Yukari and Reimu. "Thank you" you reply as you take your final steps in the mystical Gensokyo into the rather door like entrance.
Looking behind you one last time, you once again pan over the sea of familiar faces.
At the end of the group, stood Cirno, who used the necklace as a way to make a offset ponytail and waving rather stupidly.
As you take the last few steps into the entrance, you wave behind you and say
Somewhere, a faint tune of Nantoka Nare can be heard, as a single MANLY tear runs toward your face; as you take the last few steps into the entrance, back to your world.
