Week 9, Day 3 [video]

[By now, enough people have posted about the network device's malfunctioning that Rin can be sure it's not only her own. Hell, maybe it's everyone's Hitomi. There's also been talk that there are new people coming in.

Well, isn't that interesting. It's very interesting, in fact -- something like this hasn't quite happened before in Kannagara. Certainly, the Hitomi had never made so much noise on its own.

Thus, Rin is now standing at the side of a large street in Hisato, in order to keep an eye on the goings-on. She wants to be on the forefront of this. At the same time, she thinks it a good idea to make a post on the network; for one thing, to speak to the newcomers, if indeed they have a Hitomi, and for the other, well, she hasn't spoken to most of her acquaintances within Kannagara in quite some time. That is, of course, her own fault to a large extent, so maybe this is a step to making up for that.

Truth is, she hasn't been using the Hitomi much lately because she's learned there's always a risk involved in posting to it publicly, but she's willing to brave it today. No use being afraid all the time.

She turns on the video recording function, keeping her expression neutral.]

Hello.

It seems there have been some new arrivals here in Kannagara. My name is Rin. I bid you welcome and, ah, if you have any questions, I'll be available over the network the whole day. I know it can be... confusing at first, so I'll gladly try to answer to the best of my ability.

I look forward to talking to you.

[Oh, and she does, if not for quite as selfless a reason as she's making herself out to do.

The video ends here.]

(OOC: No telling her she's fictional, please, but everything else is go!)

[That throws her off slightly.]

Well... not really, but I thought I'd say hello.

[ accidentally video ] : D hallo~
[So Manji's been fiddling with this box-thing for a while, trying to figure out how it works with very limited success.

Until this comes on screen, which leaves Manji even more confused. Rin?!

How the hell did she get inside a box, especially one this small? Moreover, she looks like she's standing on a street. How the hell did they fit a fucking street in the box?!

Now Manji starts shaking the damn box that he can't figure out, poking and prodding at the screen with new vigor.]

Rin? Oi, Rin! The hell did you get in there?!

[And yes, he is holding the Hitomi upside down.]

[ accidentally video ] SQUEAL.
[There's a new message coming in on her Hitomi, and Rin clicks herself through the motions to see it, all the while hoping it's not such a patronizing jerk again, but then --

-- Rin blinks.

And blinks again, and gasps. What she's seeing won't get into her skull, and she's thinking hurry up, let it be real, let it be not a figment of my imagination.]

Ah... Manji?

[A whisper, as if her voice could shatter his image on her Hitomi.]

[...There's something very wrong with the way she says his name. He can tell that right away. It's kind of like that tone she gives him when he's gotten himself stabbed in the heart (again), except...different.

Like she can't believe she's seeing him. He blinks a few times of his own and stares at the Hitomi for a minute, trying to decide what to say, and what tone his own voice should be.

Ultimately, because he doesn't have any idea what in the hell is going on, he decides on a neutral one.]

That's me.

[And Rin wants to reply, really, she wants to do a thousand things at once -- say something, run to get him, hug the damn Hitomi like a pillow -- her head is swimming and her world swaying for a second, and then she can't do much of anything at all, because tears come bursting forth from inside her, ambushing and overwhelming her, and she can just whimper and quietly call his name again.]

Manji.

[Definitely something wrong.

--But oh god, is she crying? What is she crying for? Shit, he's never liked seeing her cry and that she's sobbing and whimpering at him is awkward and really damn confusing and honestly he's completely at a loss here.]

...O-Oi. What's wrong? [Might as well get that out of the way first.]

[She cries a little longer, sobbing quietly, until the first rush is over and she can breathe again, can gather her thoughts again and maybe compose herself.

Weakly, she smiles at the screen, just letting the first words that come to her lips come out.]

You're holding it upside down.

[But, right. That isn't the most urgent thing to be saying right now. Tears still glistening on her cheeks, she puts on a determined expression nonetheless.]

Manji! Give me a description of your surroundings, so I can find you.

[Upside down?

He turns the box around in his hand, and hey, what d'you know, he does look right-side up now. So does Rin, for that matter.]

Huh.

[But oh, at that next part, he realizes something. Rin is not actually in the box. She's somehow talking to him through it. Which is weird.

...Then again, his life is filled with weird. Such as a random old woman giving him sacred bloodworms that make him immortal. That's pretty damn weird. Better just to go with it.]

Uh. There's a lot of...flowers. And a huge tree?

[Which is also weird. He distinctly remembers going to bed in an inn. He couldn't have been that drunk, could he?]
