Previously, on MiG: You attacked the lake, pissed off a frog goddess, Befriended a (9), Lost said (9), Embarked on an epic journy and avoided your normal ADD to re-locate said (9). Died a horrible fate to tails, Had (9) returned to you, befriended the SHIT out of the darkness, Made your way to a shop, fed Laundry to the Darkness, and are now about to feed said darkness again. Oh, and you gave her sunglasses. Inventory: Camera 1ea, Film 20ea, Pen 2ea, Wallet 1ea, Cell Phone 1ea, Blueprints for the LHC 1ea. ------------------------------------------------ You walk back into the kitchen where Cirno seems to be finishing up her dramatic story to Rinnosuke. "And that's when the banana exploded. I was so surprised!" "Amazing." Rinnosuke seems absolutely enraptured by Cirno's story. You pick up your plate and start to walk back to the other room. Rumia's peeking around the corner, looking slightly less angry now. You offer your plate to Rumia who toddles over and takes the sandwich. Rinnosuke looks up. "Oh? Who's this little cutie?" Rumia looks shocked at being called a cutie, and hides behind you still munching away on the sandwich, but with significantly less gusto now. "Aren't those the sunglasses that you got from me earlier?" Rinnosuke comments on the sunglasses that rumia's now sporting. You affirm that they are the sunglasses and inform Rinnosuke that the little "cutie" is Rumia. He seems quite shocked by this. "I've never seen her before. Well, I mean with out her darkness that is. So the sunglasses were for her? You seem like you're quite the good friend to her. Little Cirno over here too. She just won't shut up about how you helped her get back at this frog goddess she keeps going on about." You laugh slightly. From the front of the store comes a loud yell "OI, KOURIN~ I KNOW YOU'RE HERE. I'VE GOT STUFF FOR YOU DA~ZE." "Ah. Pardon me, It seems that I have a customer." Rinnosuke quickly excuses himself and goes to the front of the store.
[ ] Make yourself something to eat. [ ] Ruffle Cirno's hair. [ ] Ruffle Rumia's hair. [ ] Investigate the customer. [ ] QUICK, Steal stuff and flee out the back! [ ] Do nothing, remain silent.
>>7404 Damn you loopholes, Damn you. ------------------------------------------------ You attempt to reach and ruffle both cirno and Rumia's hair at the same time. However, the two are not close enough together for you to actually try this. Moving towards Cirno, Rumia takes hold of your shirt. "Uuu... I'm still hungry..." She wines, looking up at you wtih her bespectacled face. "Please get me some moooore"
[ ] Go ahead with the double ruffle plan. [ ] Make some more for Rumia. [ ] Make something for yourself. [ ] Awww.. Isn't that cuHGGAGGNGNNNNNNKKKKKKKK [ ] Investigate the customer.
You walk over to the counter and slice some more bread from the loaf Rinnosuke had left on the counter. Looking around you see an old fashioned ice box, and presume that's where he got the meat for the sandwiches from. You were wrong. Opening up the Ice box, you see a woman sitting inside, eyes closed, white hat, purplish hair, and some sort of bizarre bluish dress on. You quickly slam the door shut and hope that you were imagining things.
[ ] Look inside again. [ ] Call Cirno over. [ ] Look elsewhere for the meat. [ ] Scream.
You decide, wether rightly or wrongly, to look somewhere else for the meat. On the counter there seems to be a... tupperware container? How did you not see that before? Taking the lid off you find about a pound of shaved ham. That's enough for about 3 sandiwches.
[ ] Make yourself a sandwich. [ ] Make a sandwich for you and rumia. [ ] KING OF SANDWICHES, DO YOU HAVE ENOUGH MEAT? [ ] Make rumia 2 sandwiches, and one for yourself. [ ] Leave some meat for Rinnosuke.
It's tied right now at 4 and 4 for 2 sammiches, and 1 sammich each. Soooo... 2 sammiches wins for being first to 4. ------------------------------------------------ You slice off some more bread. Then you proceed to make two sandwiches for Rumia and one for yourself, using up the last of the meat. You hold out the two sandwiches for Rumia in one hand, and with your other hand you raise your own sandiwch to your mouth. Before you can take a bite, however, you hear a loud CRUNCH. That's odd, you think, I didn't think there were any bones in the ham... You feel a slight stining sensation coming from your wrist. Looking down, you see rumia chewing happily away, and that at your wrist there's a bloody stump where your hand should be. Huh. Wait a Minute... YOUR HAND IS GONE. WHAT HAS RUMIA DONE?!
[ ] Scream. [ ] Panic. [ ] CIRNO! [ ] RUMIA! [ ] WHY YOU DO THIS THING? [ ] Stare dumbly at the stump.
You shout at Rumia. She looks up at you, her eyes gleaming behind the sunglasses. "Heeeeee~ It was so tasty! I'm still hungry though! So I'm gonna eat the rest of you now!" Rumia floats closer to you, you try to scramble backwards, but trip and fall backwards. You hit your head on the counter on the way down, sending the world spiraling into darkness. Oh shit anon, this isn't good.
[ ] Try to cling to conciousness. [ ] Que sera sera. [ ] Try to call for Cirno before you lose consciousness. [ ] Go quitely into that dark night.
You try to call out for cinro, but little more than a pained gurgle escapes your lips. However, it was enough to get the ice fairy's attention. She looks up and sees you falling. "HUMAN! What's wro..." And the world falls to darkness.
You feel yourself being shaken, quite violently, while someone is yelling at you. You can't quite hear thier voice, but it sounds almost... worried. You feel something pressed up against your lips and flow inside you. It tastes horrible, and leaves a strange after taste. You feel yourself floating between consciousness and unconsciousness.
[ ] Fight your way back to consciousness. [ ] Once more into the Abyss [ ] Wait.
You struggle to regain consciousness. You find yourself lying sprawled out on the floor. Suddenly, you sit bolt upright. Cirno's taken aback by your sudden movement. Breaking into a coughing fit, You see that Cirno's holding the bowl that you used to feed Rumia the laundry. Well, that explains the horrible taste. Looking down you notice that you seem to have both hands. Wait, What? Didn't rumia bite off one of your hands? Looking around, you see Rumia huddled in a corner, looking directly at you, crying quietly. What in the hell just happened? Looking around some more, you see that Rinnosuke and his customer had aparently come back into the kitchen at some point during this whole situation. Seriously, what in the hell just happened here?
"Well... I'm not exactly sure, but you may have been suffering from side effects of not having eaten in a while. You probally would have been hallucinating for at least a little while. You gave poor little Rumia over there quite a scare. Cirno too." Rinnosuke seems to notice that Cirno's holding a bowl now. "That, and aparently eating my laundry has become a passtime of everyone who comes here." "What on earth are you talking about, Kourin Da~ze?" Rinnosuke coughs. "In any event, I think it would be prudent for you to eat something now. A sandwich may be too much for you to handle in your present state, so I'll make you some eggs." Cirno helps you up and over to the table while Rinnosuke goes to make some eggs. You sit down, and Cirno starts blabbing some nonsesens at you. You're really not paying attention. You're looking at your hand. It felt so REAL what had happened. You can't imagine that it would have been just an illusion. You look up over at Rumia who's still sitting over in the corner. You aparently REALLY scared her. Marissa and Rinnosuke seem to be trying to barter over something, and Cirno's still blabbing at you.
[ ] Smile at Rumia. [ ] Call Rumia over. [ ] Listen to what Cirno's saying. [ ] Ask Marissa a question. [ ] Scream.
You call for Rumia to come over, but she just sits in the corner, shaking her head. You call for her to come over again, with the same effect. You start to stand up to go over to her, but in doing so the whole world decides that it wants to jump about ten feet to the left. You wabble unsteadily and plop back down on the bench. Rumia jumps up and starts moving toward you, but seems to think better of it. "I.. I'm sorry..." She says very quitetly, before running out of the kitchen.
[ ] Send Cirno after her. [ ] Ask Marissa to go after her. [ ] OVERCOME THE IMPOSSIBLE AND KICK REASON TO THE CURB. Then chase after Rumia. [ ] Remain silent, do nothing. [ ] Look in the icebox.
>>7621 >>7625 We arn't responsible for scaring her, Yukari or someone fucked with things. No one's going to hallucinate and pass out just from going 2 days(more like 1, 1 and half at most) without food.
Fuck you world. FUCK YOU! You made my blonde darkness loli run away, and you're not gonna get away with it. WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK I AM. You force yourself into a standing position, ignoring the world's obvious defiance of your resolve. You begin staggering towards the kitchen entrance. Cirno stops babbing at your sheer display of disregard for the laws of nature. Rinnosuke seems to have also noticed that you're attempting the impossible. Cirno seems in awe of your display of GAR. \ "Human human~ what are you doing?" You reply that you're going after Rumia. "Whaaaaaat? Like that? No. I'll go get her. I'm good at finding her. She makes me do it all the time when we play hide and seek." And with that Cirno zooms out the room, leaving you on unsteady feet, and Kourin admonishing you to sit down.
[ ] Sit down and eat. Trust Cirno to bring back Rumia. [ ] Continue forward. No breaks, No food, No casuals. Final destination. [ ] Collapse where you stand. Your body's had enough so far. [ ] Remain silent, do nothing.
You stagger back to the table, and plop down. You decide that Cirno is reliable to be able to bring her back. If not, you could always pray for another miracle. Thinking about praying makes you shiver invoulentarily. While you're sitting there, somewhat lost in thought, Rinnosuke puts a plate of eggs in front of you. "I'm sorry I don't have any bacon. It's aparently all gone missing from the icebox." You quickly inhale the eggs, and feel much better, if not still a little woozy. Rinnosuke and Marissa seem to have reached some sort of agreement and she runs out of the kitchen. Rinnosuke sits down and begins eating his own eggs. The two of you chat for a bit. Once Rinnosuke's finished his eggs, he stands up and brings some more items over to the table. The two of you spend some time with you identifying the usage of items, and rinnosuke taking notes. The ice box rattles slightly, as if a motor on it is kicking in. Rinnosuke stands up and leaves you alone in the kitchen to go find some more items for you to tell him how to use.
[ ] Investigate the ice box. [ ] Go back up to the front of the store. [ ] Eat some more. [ ] Go out the back door and look around. [ ] Scream.
You stand up and walk over to the ice box. You're not quite sure that you want to open it again, but some driving force persuades you to open it again. Looking inside you see... Nothing. There's nothing in there at all. It's slightly cool in there, but there's nothing at all. Which is odd, when you think about it, given that it's aparently running. Well, you assume it is, anyways, from the hum it's giving off.
[ ] Investigate further. [ ] Ignore icebox. [ ] Go out the back door. [ ] Go to the front of the store. [ ] Lick the icebox.
There's something really odd about this ice box, but you can't quite put your finger on what it is. It continues to hum slightly. You feel around on the inside of the ice box, but the walls appear to be solid. There are no shelves inside the icebox, and the bottom is solid. You close the door and open it again, but the same sight greets you. You look around the bottom of the ice box, and see the chord running off to one side. Huh. It really does seem like it's just a normal ice box.
[ ] Investigate further. [ ] Open and close the door repeatedly. [ ] Climb inside the icebox. [ ] Go out the back door. [ ] Go to the front of the store.
You decide to investigate further. You examine around the base and see that the cord on the floor is indeed the cord to the ice box. Seeing no other electrical devices, or power outletts anyhwhere, you begin following the cord. When you reach the plug, You find that it's plugged into an extension cord. You follow the extension cord out of the room, and up some stairs. This process continues for a few minutes before you come to a wall of junk that is blocking your path. It seems to be a mound about ten feet high, and twice as wide piled up against a wall in the upper reaches of Rinnosuke's house/store. Huh. Maybe you should pull on the cord?
[ ] Pull on the cord. [ ] Admit defeat and head back down to the kitchen. [ ] Look for an alternate way around the junk. [ ] Dig through the pile.
