You move down the hallway to the room immediately to the right of the room you were just in. You open the door, stride boldly inside, and close the door behind you. You realize this was quite a bad idea, given that there's no lights in the room, and it's now pitch black. you feel around on the walls for a light switch or something before you realize, This is essentially Feudal Japan. There's no electricity here. So THAT'S what was bugging you about that icebox. Feeling around on the walls has lead you away from the door, so you have no idea where you are in the room.

“HELP!” you call out loudly. No response.

“HELP! I NEED SOMEBODY,HELP!” Again, you listen closely. It still seems that nobody can hear you yelling.

“NOT JUST ANYBODY, HELP! YOU KNOW I NEED SOMEONE, HELP ME!”, You pound on the walls around you while shouting now. It doesn’t seem to have gotten anyone’s attention. Damn.

A fear prickles over your mind. What if you’re stuck in here forever? What if nobody ever finds you? You’d likely die in short order, trapped in a room somewhere, in some dark and lonely room. As this fear takes a deeper hold on you, you let lose a primal scream. It comes from somewhere deep inside, so deep you don’t even know where it came from. However, it does seem to have done the trick. Outside the room you hear footsteps pounding up the stairs. Moments later the door bursts open flooding the room with light. It appears that this room is octagonal shaped.

“I was wondering where you’d wandered off to. I’d thought that maybe you’d gone after Cirno and Rumia. It looks like I was wrong. What are you doing up here, anyways?” Rinnosuke stares at you inquisitively.

“I was following the cord.” You state, “I was wondering where you got electricity from in this place. To the best of my knowledge, I haven’t seen any power lines, or any other way of transmitting electricity.”

You shrug.

“Oh. That’s simple. I have a generator. The reason the cords run up here are because it’s some sort of solar panels, or something. Reisen said that they were a present from Kaguya for taking care of her pets.” Rinnosuke nods.

“Oh.” you feel rather embarrassed now.

Rinnosuke waves towards the door. “Shall we continue identifying items then?”

The two of you head downstairs. The table where you had been eating just a short while before is now covered in a wide variety of objects. Some of them you doubt that you could identify, while some of them are readily identifiable. You spend the next several hours identifying things for Rinnosuke and engaging in idle banter. As the sun dips low on the horizon, bathing the kitchen in a golden glow, Rinnosuke pushes himself back from the table.

“That was quite a few things you were able to identify. Most outsiders aren’t so helpful, nor are they able to identify such a wide variety of things. These devices are so amazing!” Rinnosuke waves his hand at a couple of hand held game systems you’d found in the pile. “So tiny, but yet, they play such wonderful games! And you can change them out to boot! Simply wonderful!”

Rinnosuke gathers up several items from the table and hauls them back out to the front room. A rumbling in your stomach reminds you that it’s been quite some time since you last ate. Cirno and Rumia have also been gone for quite some time.

Assuming this is a serious attempt to start back up again, I really am quite happy.

It's just that, one can only see certain writers drop a story for some reason (most often due to life/gaming/writer's block/substance abuse), attempt to start it back up, drop it once again, , come back, leave, come back, leave, and so on before it becomes difficult to take any attempt to restart it seriously.

If you can actually follow through on this, more power to you. Personally, I'd rather it be with a story that has been left unfinished than a re-do of one that has already been taken to completion (albeit a rather unsatisfying one) but I'll take what I can get.

You push yourself up from the table just as Rinnosuke walks back into the room.

“Ah, are you going somewhere? I was about to make dinner. It’s the least I can do after all you’ve helped me with.” Rinnosuke stares at you.

“Well, I’m just worried about Cirno and Rumia. They’ve been gone for an awfully long time.” You glance out the window at the setting sun.

“Well, they’re Youkai. They’re fairly adept at taking care of themselves, especially this near to the forest. There’s a lot of things in that forest you really don’t want to meet at night. Trust me on this. It’d probably be better for you to stay here and wait for them to come back rather than running off into the woods.” Rinnosuke walks over to the stove and coaxes the flames up.

“Well. . .”

“Well, I’ll take something quick to go, please. I really want to go look for those two. Something’s bothering me, and I can’t quite put my finger on it. . .”

Rinnosuke looks at you, appraisingly, for a moment before sighing. “Alright. I have some jerky I could give you. Just try to come back alive. I’d hate to lose such a valuable source of information.”

You smile and give Rinnosuke a confidant thumbs up. “I’ll do my best!”

Snatching up the jerky you run from the room.

That was several hours ago. Now you’re lost, cold, and alone in the middle of the forest at night. Several times you thought that you’d seen flashes of color at the edge of your vision, but you couldn’t be sure.

Fair enough.
Although, even if there is a path, it doesn't do you much good if you can't even find it, and considering it would have become dark not long after we left Kourindou that could be easier said than done.

Without some sort of light, the woods at night are going to be dark. Very, very, VERY DARK. Good luck finding a pathway in that.
>> No. 60457
You decide that the best option right now is to keep moving. And keep moving you do. Charging through the undergrowth and out into a clearing somewhere in the forest. The nearly full moon above casts an eerie glow across the entire clearing. Through the middle of the clearing, a stream trickles lazily, the moonlight reflecting off of it’s surface.

The sky above is quite clear. You’re quite thankful for that, it’s the only reason you can really see anything at all after your rash decision to go running off into the woods. Tentatively, you take a few steps towards the middle of the clearing before glancing around warily. The feeling that something is watching you prickles at the edges of your consciousness. You try to shake off the feeling as you kneel down to take a drink from the stream, but it continues to linger. Hearing a splash, you whip your head up towards the sound. There’s nothing there. Probably just a fish, or maybe an animal of some sort. . . You hope.

After hearing the splash, you immediately rush over to see what the noise was. It seems that there’s a small fairy here that had fallen into the water. Upon seeing you, it jumps up out of the water and vanishes into the woods. Looking around, you see quite a few fairies flitting about. Something in the back of your mind tells you that this is a bad thing.

Shaking your head you head back out into the clearing. It almost feels like something is watching you at this point. A cloud passes in front of the moon casting the whole clearing in shadow. You think that you faintly hear someone singing. If they are it’s at quite a distance. . .

The song. It calls you. You walk along through the woods in an almost trance like state. Step. Step. Step. All around you the night seems to be growing darker. It must be more clouds moving in front of the moon. Idly you hope that it doesn’t rain. Step. Step. Step. It fades darker and darker until you doubt that you could see your hand in front of your face.

Dinner, Dinner~ It’s almost time for dinner~

Step. Step. Step. Shaking your head, you try to clear the fog from your senses. Step. Step. Step. Where ever it is that you’re heading, it evokes a deep seated fear in your heart. You’re not quite sure why, but where you’re being lead is dangerous. Step. Step. Step. Damn it! You have to stop! STOP MOVING GOD DAMN IT. Step. Step. . . step. Damnit. It’s not working. Redoubling your efforts you try and stop, shaking your head again. Step. . . Step. . . Step. . . Ah! You seem to be slowing down a bit, but not soon enough. The final step brings you out of the woods and into a clearing. There’s a small wooden building here. Well, maybe it’s a cart. You’re not exactly too sure, as your mind is still a little foggy. Step. . . Step. . . Stop.

Oh~ What ever do we have here~?
     A customer, A customer~
          Or maybe, A fancy dinner~?

Still unable to move, you stand there staring as a girl walks out of the building/stand.

“Come come~ Eat, or be eaten~” She calls out in a sing song voice. Unable to stop yourself, you comply.

“So,” The girl grins at you, revealing many rows of sharp teeth. “What can I get for you?”
