"Hi, I’m new here, can you show me around?" "Uh… I think I’m lost." "Wow, those are some awesome threads!" "Don’t mind me, I just like making new friends!" "Oh dear, do you need help?" "You look like you could use a hand." "You look a little lost, can I be of assistance?" "Let me know if you need anything."
"Watch where you’re going." "Oops, did I do that?.. Oh well." "Take a picture, it’ll last longer." "Get lost, would ya?" "I don’t have time to play tour guide." "Thankfully, it’s not my job to help you." "Surely, you have better things you could be doing right now." "What did I do to deserve this?" "It’d be great if you could shut the hell up."
"Wait! Stop!" "Don’t let them find us." "I don’t wanna be left alone." "You need to leave. Now." "Get out of the way!" "Are you dead?" "Hurry! Run!"
"Can I skip dinner and go right for dessert?" "Do you want to move this conversation someplace more private?" "I can’t help but wonder what noises you make in bed." "I think I just found the most beautiful girl in Japan." "I saw that. You just checked me out." "Well, there goes my boxers/panties." "Keep sweet-talking and this could go a whole new direction." "Hey there, Foxy Mama." "Huh? Oh yeah, this view is nice." "How about we go back to my place? I’ve got board games." "All you have to do is say, "yes." "I hear you’re well-endowed. Mind if I see for myself?" "How about a couple of drinks?" "What would it take to have your head between my legs?"
"Wow, your eyes are the most beautiful, that I’ve ever seen." "I’ve been enchanted by your amazing voice." "Ah, I’m sorry, I could have sworn you were an angel." "Am I dreaming, or do you really exist?" "I wasn’t aware that Goddesses/Gods existed." "No flower or scenery can compare to your beauty."
"At long last! I’ve finally found you! Now I can kill you!" "What an ugly mug, it’s a good thing I won’t have to see you for long." "How would you like to be full of holes?" "You know, I think your head looks better detached from your body. " "I will make you experience unimaginable pain." "Beg all you want, but your fate is going to end the same way." "If it’s a fight you want, it’s a fight you’ll get." "You make one move, you’ll be dead before you hit the ground." "Make no mistake, I will shoot you." "Game’s over." "Looks like your time is up."
"Love is illogical, it means nothing to me." "The more you cry, the more reasons I find to leave your pathetic being." "Do not touch me, I don’t require affection from anyone." "Why are you hugging me?" "He’s dead, let’s move on." "Why is family so important to you?" "I don’t really care about your problems, honestly." "Are we done here? You’re putting me to sleep." "Quit your whining, you’re giving me a headache." "Your tone suggests I’m supposed to care."
“You may try. But I would say that referring to someone as something would not make said person more of that something. At least not in any way significant, nor useful." Orochi himself personally wished that he could name-calling someone to their painful death, but even the most mature curses had their limits.
“Most of my enemies are ghosts from the past—it is hard to get rid of old habits, as you have so wisely put. Perhaps enmity is just one of those habits we never quit.”
"A pretty complicated person you are, aren’t you, Orochi-san?” Chiyoko giggled softly. Somehow she felt at ease with this person around. Raven didn’t have to hide her true self and to be scared to be found out. Probably because of his origins?
"And ghosts from the past, huuuh… Clever. Then I have these enemies too." Harionago smiled to him but you could tell that the smile had little bit of pain in it.
Makoto blinked and looked around the parlor before looking back at his guest. "Does it look like a convenience store…?” If it did then there was something very wrong… He’d have to fix that… "Does it look like a convenience store from the inside or the outside?" Either way he would fix it if she answered his question. He’d probably think about it for days if she didn’t. He’d never once thought that it looked like a convenience store. "Hm?" He looked at her upon hearing her words before shaking his head. "That’s up to you. I can also do piercings. Or you don’t have to get anything if you don’t want to." He would be fine with it one way or the other.
Chi looked around together with the person. There were tattooing and piercing stuffs everywhere. Definitely not a sight that you would see in a convenience store. “Probably… From the outside?” Chiyoko shrugged innocently even though she wasn’t sure herself why did she thought that it was a convenience store here. And seeing the person get so upset about it made her heart ache little bit.
"Well, piercings don’t really work for me, haha…" Chiyoko made a sound similar to laugh but sadder. It was difficult to pierce her body with the greatest swords so a simple needle would really not work. "Let’s get me tattooed up!" Raven nodded her head enthusiastically.
Look at what a simple stroll had turned out to be. The light stench of metallic copper had alarmed the pink-nette, triggering her to follow the scent to witness another ghoul during their feasting. She felt her nose wrinkle as she watched idly from a far distance, but it seemed even the other had sensed her.
Rest in peace, poor man.
❝ I’m not interfering. I merely gotten a whiff of the aroma of blood and followed it to here. I was planning to leave you to your feasting, in fact. ❞
Chiyoko followed the girl closely whit her eyes. “Let me guess… You are one of these modern ghouls, aren’t you?” Harionago laughed and sat on the clean part of the corpse that she was devouring before. “You kids make me feel old…” Raven sighed but continued smiling as the guest somehow was really entertaining to her.
"Is the smell so tempting to you?" Ghoul asked interested. "You can eat the rest if you want, you see… This part is tastiest to me. I don’t really want anymore." Chiyoko shrugged while patting the place where should be persons chest. Though it was nothing more than an empty space right now.
“Are you saying I wasn’t nice before?" He cocked an eyebrow at the female, grinning, showing a little bit of his pointy fangs, and then said, "I go by a ‘whoever isn’t an enemy is whatever’ policy these days.”
Orochi smiled thinly, acknowledging the ghoul’s name, “Kasumi-san, is it. You sound like someone who knows her table manners. That is very important theses days, I will say. If you promise to be polite and clean, I wouldn’t mind if you take your long walks here every now and then. It is rare to see a barbed woman now, and a snake could show some hospitality once in a while.”
"Please accept my deepest apologies, should I start calling you Mr. Nice-san from now on?” Chiyoko bowed little bit sarcastically. “Ahh, I see, I see. Pretty good policy you have there. And do you have a lot of enemies these days? It’s pretty boring for me… Not really an easy job to find another yōkai or anything like that…” A sigh left her mouth.
"No need to be so formal with me. Chiyoko is fine too. And table manners, huh? Well, it’s little bit hard to get rid of old habits. And in the old times… All people were little bit more mannered, no?” Raven laughed cheerfully. “Ohhh… Then I’ll be sure to use your hospitality and will come for a visit every now and then.” Harionago slightly smirked.
The faerie blinked at the sight of his new guest before sighing softly. "I was just about to close up for the day, but it seems you’ve caught me. If you’d like something, then by all means, be my guest." He wasn’t irritated by the situation at all, regardless of how he looked and sounded.
"Oh boy, so this is not a convenience store? I was 100% sure that it’s." Harionago pouted her lips and looked around for a few seconds. This definitely looked like a tattoo studio. Nothing like a convenience store at all. Where did she even get that. Then her pinkish eyes caught a person that was talking to her. "Then… I should probably get a tattoo, no?" Chiyoko smiled, showing her white and little bit fanged teeth.
