[Week 11, Day 3] Video

[As the feed begins, it reveals a young girl, perhaps 13 or 14, but with an intense look one doesn’t usually see on children that young. She’s sitting beneath a massive tree, dirty-faced, and dressed in a ragged black dress. She examines the device in her hand curiously, as if she’s not quite sure what to make of it.] What a peculiar machine. It’s almost like a sort of a camera, except that the pictures are moving.

[She smiles slightly, with an almost dreamy look.] Perhaps it’s a kind of magic. I’m quite sure I had fallen asleep in the attic last night. [She frowns a bit, remembering what had happened before she fell asleep, and speaks in a low voice.] I might be dreaming, even now. If I am, I should like to keep dreaming. It’s much more pleasant here.

[But then another thought strikes her and she smiles; her face seems to light up somehow.] Perhaps it was the Magic! I always believed—or I thought I believed—that the Magic always saves you when things are at their very worst. Perhaps this is the land of the fairies, and I’ve been snatched away by the Queen.

[She continues to look at the device in silence until she happens upon the button that clicks it off.]

[Rin can't help but wonder what kind of life this girl has been leading that the first thing she has to say about Kannagara is how much nicer it is, but for now, she isn't about to ask.

But clearly, the young girl could need a helping hand. (And you can mostly trust girls that age, right? You could even trust Dōa, as long as she didn't try to kill you.)]

Uh, hello. Please don't be scared! This machine can transmit moving pictures, but also just voices. I am choosing to transmit you my voice only for my own reasons. Please bear with me.

I suppose you could call it magic that we're here. It's not a country of "fairies", exactly, but something similar. A land of gods and spirits. They're not all nice, so you should be careful.

The best thing would be for you to go to one of the villages. The biggest is Hisato. If you look at your machine -- your Hitomi, you should see a button that says "map". If you tap it with your finger, it will show you, well, a map. You can see where Hisato is there. Think of it and start walking, and you'll arrive within half an hour.

[video, because she doesn't know how to change it yet]
[She nods seriously. Many stories had evil spirits as well as good ones, so it was only to be expected that it might be the same here.]

How can you tell them apart?

[She looks around and selects the correct button, examining the map carefully when it appears.]

I see where it is.

[She's silent for a moment, then swallows her pride.]

I'm afraid I don't quite know what to do. How would one find somewhere to stay?

Well, the bad ones generally do try to hurt you.

[Pause as she overthinks that.]

Actually, I'd be suspicious of anything that looks unusual, to be safe. There are a few benign or at least harmless ones, but you never know.

As for housing, there's an inn in Hisato where you can stay for the time being. It's called Natsuno Ryokan.

[And there, she pauses again. Does she really want to leave this girl to fend for herself? After all, Kannagara can be a hard place to live in. And this girl seems quite confused. Small wonder, really.]

Would -- would you, perhaps, like me to come pick you up?

My name is Rin, by the way.

[voice] Gah, late
[She considers Rin's offer.]

If you please...I should like that very much, Miss Rin.

[After a short contemplation, Rin switches to the video function. She smiles at the camera.]

Okay. Here, now you can see what I look like. I'll be taking off right away, so I should arrive in about half an hour.

Thank you. Shall I wait here?

[OOC: Backdated log time?]

Yeah, that'd be best. Don't worry, you're safe where you are now.

(OOC: Sure, if you'd like!)

All right. Thank you.

[OOC: Shall I start it, then?]

Hey, it's no problem! I'll be on my way now, but I'll keep my Hitomi on, in case you need anything.

(OOC: Sure, go ahead! That would be lovely.)
