'Police are inquiring about information regarding a person of interest who was seen during the incident. She is described as a girl, age twelve to fourteen, with pink-dyed hair.'"It's not dyed!" I shout at the news report on the phone. 'If you see her, do not approach. She is being treated as a suspect in the incident and may be considered dangerous. Instead, call-""Dangerous!?" I shout even louder!"Shh!" Maeda puts her hand over my mouth before I make an even bigger scene.I've saved the city, but now I'm a wanted criminal! I don't know where Mom went so wrong with me!I am Itsukuma Masami, and today looks to be getting even worse somehow! Earlier, Asai unleashed some kind of weird building-monster on the city. Then it turned out that he didn't.. really unleash it on the city? That it sort of got away from him? I don't get it. It just cements in my mind what I already knew: Asai is a jerk.I was able to subdue both it and Asai by sucking both of them into a card like a vacuum cleaner. I'm amazed that worked! It just seems like a godzilla-sized monster disappearing from the city has attracted some attention that I don't want.We walk into the subway station to find Aiko. At the very least we won't get spotted down here.Except, blocking our progress, are policemen! Three of them! How do I get around them? >Ask one of your friends to distract them somehow>Walk past them without making eye contact.>Find something to hide in! Like a blanket! >Throw a can! >Use a card! >Other?

Good evening!>Find something to hide in, like a Blanket! Writing!>>45077410Doing fine! I wish I had done a thread last week. I don't like leaving you guys hanging!
Oh god oh god oh god oh god! I need to hide! I search around for something that might be able to cover me up. Ryouta's jacket, Maeda's hair, Kaori's skirt!? No, Kaori probably wouldn't like me ripping off her skirt. Um, umm! Ah ha! Nearby, hanging over a metal handrail, is a fireman's coat! It's yellow, with reflective orange stripes all over it! Normally, it would be pretty eye-catching; but I can turn it inside-out! It just looks like an ordinary white coat, now. I drape the fabric over my face as Maeda and Ryouta stand in front of me. Kaori helps me along as we slowly feel our way into the restroom. "They barely even looked at us." Ryouta says with a sigh, "Didn't even notice that I came into the girl's restroom.""They probably have more important things on their mind." Maeda sighs."Aiko!" I yell, "Are you in here?!" Silence.Oh no! Kaori makes a beeline for the third stall in the restroom. This is where Aiko was hiding."Aiikooo!" Kaori bangs on the door. "Tell us if you're in theere!" Silence."I hate doing this, but-" Kaori hoists herself up onto the stall door, and peeks inside. "She's Gone!?" Ryouta immediately pulls open the door. She's gone! >"AIIIKKOOOO WHERE ARE YOUUUUU!?" >Call her phone! >Wait! No signal down here! >Ask Kaori to search again! >Run in circles! >Examine the bathroom closer!>Other?!
>>45077870>Call her phone! >Wait! No signal down here! >Examine the bathroom closer!
>>45077870>Call her phone!>Wait! No signal down here!>Examine the bathroom closer!
>>45077870>Call her phone! >Ask Kaori to search again!I'm awake for a thread! A joyous occasion!

This is bad! This is really bad! I thought I had everything solved, and this has to happen!? I grab my phone and tap several tiles on the screen.Everything is fine! Just fine! All we have to do is fine Aiko! It can't be hard, right?!Bzzt. "Your call cannot be completed at this time." I flick the screen and check signal strength.0%!! Oh, oh right. I guess I AM underground after all. That sucks.I push past Ryouta and start searching through the stall she was in. Ceiling tiles coat the floor. It seems this place was jostled around when that monster was stomping through town. I look behind the toilet. Opening up, I don't see anything inside. I'm.. not sure what I was expecting, so moving on! I run out of the stall and look under the sinks, on the floor, anywhere that someone might have left a clue! That's when I see something, on the floor.It's a slip of paper? Maybe.. toilet paper, or maybe something that fell out of someone's pocket. My hand reaches down, and touches it. With that, my entire body almost immediately stiffens! It feels like a bolt of lightning just traveled from my finger, up my arm, and into my body! Kaori catches me before I fall over. "Masami!?" "Wait, what?" Maeda bends over, and despite all common sense, grabs the slip of paper! She flips it over, there's nothing on it but a single symbol which you can't identify. "Huh, looks like a sealing sutra." Ryouta flicks it with his finger. "What's it doing down here?">"Hey, I think I know someone who used those.">"I think.. Adults are the worst." >"Oh no!" >Run out of the bathroom, with not a care in the world if the cops see you! >You need to call Aiko, right now! >Other?
>>45078556>"Hey, I think I know someone who used those.">"I think.. Adults are the worst." >You need to call Aiko, right now!
>>45078556>"Hey, I think I know someone who used those.">"I think.. Adults are the worst.">You need to call Aiko, right now!
>>45078556>"Oh no!">You need to call Aiko, right now!
>>45078556>>"Oh no!">>You need to call Aiko, right now!
>"Hey, I think I know someone who used those.">"Oh no!">"I think.. Adults are the worst.">You need to call Aiko, right now!Writing! Wow, where is the time going!? I need to pick up the pace!
"Hey." I say, with a certain sense of realization. "I think I know someone who used those." Little slips of paper. Which had strange symbols on them.Also, touching anything associated with them would make me feel numb for a few minutes. "OH NO!" I shout, everyone turns to face me without understanding the crisis occurring! "What?! What's wrong?!" Maeda exclaims, Kaori seems to be slightly more aware of what is going on."I think.." I pause, "I think Adults are the worst!" I throw the coat back over myself and rush out of the bathroom. The police aren't even around as I rush up the stairs. My phone struggles in my hand as I tap the tile again.Ring.Ring..Ring..."Come on, Come on!" I yell to the phone, which can't hear me. Click.There's some noise in the background, which sounds like a car radio.Then.. silence."No.. NO!" You're certain you know what it is. "MARIE." I yell, "YOU MONSTER, I TRUSTED YOU!" "Hey!" You hear a gruff voice, "What's going on?" One of the policemen you saw earlier turns toward you, he doesn't seem to be apprehensive. "Are you lost?" >"Oh it's terrible! My best friend has been kidnapped!" >"No! no! I'm fine! Definitely not a pink-haired girl!" >"EEK!" Start running! >Ignore him, pretend you didn't hear him! >Other?
>>45079211>"No! no! I'm fine! Definitely not a pink-haired girl!"
>>45079211>Ignore him, pretend you didn't hear him!
>>45079211>>Ignore him, pretend you didn't hear him!
>Ignore him, pretend you didn't hear him!Everyone, I have to travel tomorrow and I'm fading. Writing last post of the night!
Uh oh, I've been spotted!"You need someone to take you home?" ..I'm just gonna.Start walking.Keep my eyes far away from him.Keep walking.Yes, this is perfect. Not at all suspicious! "Lil' girl?" Nope! He must be talking about someone else! Keep walking! "Are, you, okay?" My gait increases to a full-blown trot. I hear footsteps behind me! He's given chase! I can't just explode with speed, he might notice that! At the same time, I can't let him catch up with me! Oh, what to do!? That's when I see it, freedom! It's in the shape of a narrow corridor embedded into the endless concrete wall of the city.I duck into the alleyway with a quick turn, and then press against the wall. Outside, footsteps become gradually louder before slowly fading off into the distance.Phew. Running from the law isn't fun at all! I thought it would at least be like those movies on TV! I don't even get a sportscar! "Hey." Another, less gruff but more harsh voice sounds out RIGHT NEXT TO ME.I nearly jump out of my skin as my head turns to meet it! "..Ken'ichi?" The blonde kid with his dumb sunglasses sighs. "I can't believe the police are calling YOU dangerous." He puts his hand on my head and furiously rubs my hair into a frenzy. "You're like a big stuffed doll with magic powers." "I'm not a Doll!" I snap back at him, "I don't have time for this, Ken! I'm sorry I woke you up from whatever nap you're taking, but there's trouble! Aiko-""Aiko's missing, and Marie took her. I know." He crosses his arms.Wait, how does HE know!? >Cont.
"I know you think of me as a lazy doofus who just sleeps my problems away, but I'm a very complex person." He smiles, adjusting his sunglasses. "I'm only lazy because I'm always on top of things." "That's nice and all, but we don't even know where to look and Aiko's phone is being weird." "I was just looking for someone to help get Aiko back. I was hoping to find your mother, but you'd work just fine." He stretches his arms. "I guess finding you is actually very lucky. I'd be worried if I couldn't." "Hmph." I pout, "Unless you're going to help, I don't need your-" He grabs my arm and pulls me back before I walk onto the street."There's a reason I was looking for your mother instead of you." Ken suddenly seems serious. "I saw Marie, and I saw her taking Aiko." Suddenly, a glimmer of hope! "WHERE!?" I exclaim, grabbing his hands. "Let's go! I can teleport us right to her and bash her face into the-" "Now, now Masami. Don't do that. We'll see her soon enough."My phone buzzes in my pocket. "You should look at that." Ken'ichi cracks his knuckles. He pushes me further into the alleyway as the shadow of the building seems to cast itself over us. "What is going on here?! Why am I always the last to know?" I take my phone out, unlocking it with my secret code into it. It's just 11111, but don't tell anybody! "Marie wasn't going to take Aiko and leave this time. Marie is after something." Ken searches the brick masonwork. What's he looking for?Huh, the buzz from my phone is a new text message. It's from Aiko!?"Namely." Ken continues, his finger slides into a tiny hole in the brickwork. "Marie is after you." The text message from Aiko is short, simple, and very effective. "Run" are the only symbols on screen.>Thread End.
Thanks for the thread everyone! We should have threads every week instead of this 'once every two weeks' thing.Good news: I'm almost moved into my new place! More time for quests! Longer quests! Quests which last all day because I can run them work! Isn't it grand? We are STILL in the 'final arc' even though it seems like we just started another. Don't worry! I know what I'm doing here! I have everything under control! I just wish I was faster about itThanks for everyone for the thread. Let me know what you thought of it. I think next thread is going to be Saturday as planned. See you then!
