Shrine of a Natural Deity

Just seeing how enthusiastic she was being at the idea of visiting made the fox want to go more. It sounded like a wonderful place to visit, and apparently, they were fans of fluff over there. All the more reason for the fox to be welcome there.

Maybe she would make Tobi go with her, both so he got a chance to spend the day outside the island, and so he could meet other people. The boy really needed some connections to actual people, and not the imps and creatures that frequented the Demons Market.

"I’ll check what our plans are. But if all goes well and we have nothing of great importance planned, then I’m sure we can come visit you very soon." The island would be fine for a while in the hands of the imps, so long as it was hidden away in a safe place and she made absolutely sure to let them know that drinking was off limits while she and Tobi were away. She trusted her imps, yes, but not that much.

"Biggest mountain in Gensokyo…I’m sure I’ll find it~" Though if she got lost, she could always ask for directions. The more she frequented the place, the better handling she would have of the landmarks. "And I’ll be sure to bring him with. I think he’ll enjoy the trip."

Suwako would never deny that she had the kind of energy that tends to be infectious to other people, and the potential of having a new visitor brought that part of her personality to the forefront. She could only imagine how fun everything would be once the two demons made their way to Gensokyo. Of course she would have to be sure to make good on her planned visit to the demon serpent soon so that she wouldn’t miss Ninetails’ visit. That would simply be horrible.

"All right, okay! You should definitely both come sometime soon whenever you can, kero! You don’t have to worry about us, because we’ll definitely be able to greet you no matter when you show up! I’ll go on home and make sure that we’ll have stuff ready whenever~"

The girl gave a quick hop on her tiptoes in excitement, practically dancing as she moved herself to be between Ninetails and the door. She even gave a little spin on her toe once she was in position before turning back toward Ninetails.

"So before I go do you want any miracles or blessings? I may not look it but I can still do quite a bit in this world away from my shrine, kero. You can ask me whatever… doesn’t even have to be with my curse buddies. I’ll see what I can do if you just ask~~!"

"Psst. Kanako. Suwako says you're a nerd."

"Again? You think that she’d get over the fact that I simply know more about technology…" Says the one who still needs Sanae’s help constantly.

"I-I- No, I just…" Narau lapsed into a embarrassed silence.

"Alright, yes… there is someone I like, but I don’t… We like each other, but… I just… gah… I don’t know what to do."

"Well you talk to them, silly! You think they’re just going to somehow figure it out without knowing how you feel? And if that doesn’t work then so what? You still get to be friends in the end and you stop worrying about all those silly twisty feelings in your stomach, kero." The girl was practically hopping with excitement as she spoke. "I say go for it! You’ve gotta be brave to get the best things that you want after all~!"

Nue smiled and accepted the tea with a nod. She watched the frog goddess carefully, partially out of paranoia as always.  But now there was something else creeping into Nue’s mind.  Honest curiosity.  In many ways the two of them were not so different or at least not to Nue’s way of thinking.  They both used others for their own ends, they both needed humans, and they both were schemers.

"True enough.  I do miss some of the conveniences I enjoyed in my time in the outside.  If you ever bring mochaccinos into Gensokyo let me know."

Still there was one thing that bothered Nue as she took a sip of her refreshed cup.  Normally the only reason Nue would be so open is if she knew that everything incriminating was somewhere else, or that she knew that anything that was found would mislead to some other end.

"Well, I must say.  It’s a little suspicious that you are so open.  Everyone has secrets, even if they’re just the trivial embarrassing kind.  I find it odd that you seem to believe you don’t even have those."

Mochaccino? That was a term that threw Suwako off for a moment from the unfamiliarity of it. It sounded like some sort of coffee drink, though, given the terms Sanae had tossed around before. She wanted to ask Nue about it, but the youkai moved on to a much more interesting topic. Of course a trickster might have trouble with the ideas of being completely open and straightforward. She had to giggle at Nue’s disbelief.

"So what, you want to know the color of my undies? How many people I’ve kissed? All my favorite snacks? I really don’t mind if you want to ask something personal, kero. It might even be fun~!" There was a particular amount of lightness as she exclaimed that to her guest. Hopefully her being jovial about the question would drive off Nue from the matter.

The giggling did die down after a few moments as Suwako’s mood settled into a more serious one, though that bright smile remained. “I mean sure, we could be super secretive about everything, but that only backfired on us before. Every time we tried to be sneaky about things we ended up making enemies. That’s why I’ve been trying so hard to be super honest with everyone, kero! You make more friends if you’re honest and genuine with yourself. On top of that, we get more people to cooperate with us if they know exactly what we’re after. Trust is a big thing when you have big plans that you can’t do alone, after all~ That’s why I don’t mind telling you so much. If it means your temple can trust us to go with our plans then that means the honesty is worth it, right?”
