>Takeshi: To travel 100 feet laterally you would be moving at about 40 miles per hour assuming a decently arced trajectory. An impact at that speed would cause severe damage including broken ribs, internal trauma, and possibly a collapsed lung.
Takeshi: That impact should've killed or at least maimed me. No wait... That can't be right.
Takeshi: Hmm... Maybe she over-exaggerated the distance, or maybe I'm missing a variable somewhere. Damn. Why couldn't she have given me an estimate in metric. Oh well. I should be able to convert that real quick by-
Kid 2: Takeeeeeeeeshi~. Come out. Come out, wherever you are.
Takeshi: Aww crap. Right. I was supposed to be running.
Takeshi: Man. If only I had some way to stall her until Kiyoshi gets here.
>Takeshi: Is that a samurai ninja katana sword behind that tree?
Takeshi: Wait a second. What's that behind this tree?
>Takeshi: Pull Sword out from behind tree! Have no idea how to use a Sword
Takeshi: Whoa. Random katana behind the tree. Who drops something like this?
>Takeshi: Grab the sword, hold yourself hostage. If they don't let you go, you start with the self stabbing. It's a bold move, but it might be your only option, and it'll stall them until Kiyoshi arrives.
Takeshi: To bad I don't know how to use one. I'll just have to hold myself hostage then. Surely she'll back off if I threaten to kill mys-
???: Do you wish to learn the ways of the sword, young lord?
Takeshi: AHHHHHHH! GHOSTS! DON'T KILL ME!
???: I do not intend to harm you. Please. Calm down.
Takeshi: Who said that?
???: Look down at your feet.
Takeshi: T-the sword? What do you want?
Sword: I can teach you the ways of the sword and the samurai. I can give you skill, grace, and power to rival even a demon. However, you will need to make a pact with me and give me some temporary control over your body.
Takeshi: H-how do I know I can trust you? Are you a demon?
Sword: I have been called similar before. It is not an entirely accurate assessment though. Without a master, I am helpless and powerless. I assure you, young lord, I need you as much as you need me.
>Kiyoshi: Don't force her.
Kiyoshi: I want your help, Yuko. I'm still very new to all this. I think I'm getting a better handle of how things work, but I still don't understand a lot that you do. I'm mostly powerless against all of this. Your supernatural powers from the game might be able to combat them better than I can. Besides, even if you turn into your game self, maybe I can get you to still work with me while under the influence.
Yuko: Alright, then I'll-
Kiyoshi: ...BUT I'm not going to force you, Yuko. If you're even the slightest bit uncomfortable with all this. Don't come. You've already given me a better shot than I would have had otherwise. I'll figure something out.
Yuko: Don't be stupid. You need me, right?
Kiyoshi: Well, if you want, you could stay just close by, and I could call you on your cell phone if I need you. Should keep you out of range.
Yuko: But you're still hurt. What if you can't call me in time?
Kiyoshi: Don't worry. I'll figure something out. What's the point of saving one person only to let another one fall victim to the game? Besides, it's not as bad as it looks.
>Yuko: "The beaten stupid look suits you. It really suits you."
Yuko: I'm not so sure. I don't think it looks bad at all. The beaten stupid look kinda suits you.
Kiyoshi: Uhhh... Thanks?
Yuko: I'll get dressed. I'll meet you downstairs with your sister.
>Sis, reveal name.
Kiyoshi: Tomoe. What is all this?
Sis: It's just a basic seal and purification wand. It should help out. Beginner level stuff to use too. Just throw the seal and wave the wand around a bit. Maybe say a prayer or something.
Kiyoshi: So what if this doesn't do the trick?
Sis: Then it will probably piss them off, but I can't give you much better without more specific information.
Yuko: Well, I suppose it will have to do. I've studied a bit on magic myself in my work. I can probably help you wing it if you have problems.
Sis: Alright. I'll see you later then.
Kiyoshi: Where are you going this late?
Sis: I'm gonna go see if I can't find out more about any weird activities in the supernatural underworld recently. Pretty boring stuff, honestly. Just talk with a few contacts. Don't worry. I'll be back by bedtime.
>Kiyoshi's sister: Have your own amazing adventures outside the specifications of the game, which you find fairly dull.
Yuko: So... Do you think she's actually...?
Kiyoshi: I have no idea, and I stopped asking a long time ago.
Kid 1: Stupid Takeshi and his guardian. They think they can escape with cheap parlor tricks, but my sister should be making short work of them.
???: Excuse me. Did you say Takeshi?
>Chemist: Show up.
Kid 1: Yeah. So? Who wants to know?
