Week 20, Day 7 [ Video ]

[The video comes on to an up-close view of a deep brown eye staring up at the Hitomi. It tilts to the side a bit, and then the camera pans out enough to make out the rest of the man’s face, including the vertical scar that runs the length of his other eye and the horizontal one over the bridge of his nose, and the slight scruffly stubble at his chin—apparently the man has decided to inspect the device from arm’s length, now.]


[Manji goes out of focus as the Hitomi is turned upside down and then around, reading the kanji inscription on the back.]

Hitomi, ah? Just what the hell does that even mean… [There’s a scowl offscreen, and the feed jostles for a bit longer before Manji decides he has no use for the thing. But he holds onto the thing because maybe Rin might or he could sell it--

-- …come to think of it, where is Rin? The video only shows the grass, but his voice can still be heard.]

Rin? [One, two three…] Oi, Rin!

…where is she. Don’t remember her goin’ off anywhere…

[…hrm. And where is he, for that matter? He’s fairly certain he went to sleep in an inn, not the middle of a forest.]

Eh…think I ain’t in Edo anymore… [Siiiigh. Welp, here’s trying again:] Riiiiin?

…Well, shit.

[There’s shuffling and the sounds of footsteps for a few more minutes before the feed times out.]

[...That's Rin's voice. But where is it coming from? He scans the area around him with his one good eye, looking for her.]

Eh? Rin, where...

[And that's when he spots the thing he found glowly oddly...

He stares at the thing in confusion as it displays Rin's face and transmits her voice.]

The hell--how'd you get in there? [He's already trying to figure how to get her out.]

[...Just. Give him a moment. Kind of. Staring in confusion for a bit, then:]

A'right. [It's...rather obvious that he doesn't get it, but it seems the least of their concerns at the moment.]

So...where did they come from, anyway? And where are we?

...This world?

[So he was right about not being in Edo. But...another world? What?]

So you mean we ain't...even on Earth anymore?

[Well. That's...well. Only a few notches above worms living in his bloodstream and keeping him immortal and ageless, really. So Manji's only a little more than confused.]

Yeah, that's the place. How big is that damn thing anyway? Can't even see the top...

[He leans back against the tree, giving Rin a smile.]

Ain't goin' anywhere.

[video] HURF I forgot I hadn't tagged this orzorzorz ;;;;
I'll be waiting.

[Half an hour doesn't mean much without some way to check the time (and he doesn't know really how to work the Hitomi yet) but he knows Rin will get there when she says she will. Unless she gets lost. But she's been here awhile, right?

Manji doesn't quite know how to turn the device off either, so the feed fixes on a corner of his coat as he puts it down.]

[ action ] 1/2 also >.>
[Manji was perfectly content to spend the time waiting for Rin just lounging against that monstrous tree, staring up at the sky and the clouds floating past. He wasn't about to nap right away in an unfamiliar place like this, but it was plenty opportunity to relax.

It's not until he hears the rustle in the nearby shrubbery that he bothers to move at all.

There she is...

...But when she's finally there in front of him and their eyes lock, Manji doesn't have a smart remark ready like was she sure that was only thirty minutes? Instead, he can only stare in silence at first.

He'd gotten the sense of something different about her when she had that unusual remark earlier. Now that she's in front of him, he knows immediately what it is.

Rin has grown up.

It's written all over her, in her eyes, the set of her jaw, the squaring of her shoulders. There's confidence there, the weight of experience. She's learned surely any number of things in the time since she'd last seen him, but the most obvious is that ability to stand on her own. It almost makes him wonder what the hell he's doing here now.]

[He's quiet for a few moments longer before he finally closes his eyes and breaks the silence with a chuckle. A chuckle that soon becomes a soft laugh, deep and rumbling in that way of his.

And then he gives her a smile.]

Well, damn! Not an hour ago, I had a little girl traveling with me.

You've grown up, Rin.
