.......................

You want to check on Yuu after your another fight. In your actions that would consider morally wrong, you can't help but lie to her. Even if it hurts you inside. Maybe after all of this blows, you can say everything, or disappear but that wouldn't solve everything. You distract yourself by thinking another thing which you neglecting after collecting your little group. How to fight in team. While you want to bring Okada for this fight, you won't know if you can convince him to come. But that will be later.

As you drop down in front of the mansion, you walk inside the dimly light house. The light is so dim you can just pull this from a horror movie. Still you go to Okada's office and mentally call Rei to your position. After several minutes the whole shadow group is here.

"Hello everyone.As you can see, we have a lot of enemies. But we only have to fight one person and that is Sachiko Yumegawa. We don't know why she is doing this or why her motivations are but this will stop. We are also aware of a third party who is patrolling on the streets. And lastly, the shadow in the forest. It's powerful and it will greatly empower us if we defeat it. So first of agenda what should we do?"

Everyone is silent. Tough crowd but maybe they can't suggest something if you already said everything. Or just following you blindly. You scratch your head from the silent treatment you given. Then Marie raised her hand.

"Can we eat now?"

Then a growling noise from Marie. You can't believe her, she already ate on that restaurant. How can she is hungry after that. Raye suggest something.

"Can we get another issue of that comic? I liked it."

You can only facepalm from this display. Okada is the only one silent, as you stare at him, he shies away.

"Let me guess, more money?"

He can only nod and you groan.

>You know what, can we be serious for this time?

"EVERYONE PLEASE FOCUS"

"Really Junko, is this kinda.......i dunno. Try harding? I mean we aren't at war with several battalion of magical girls raining down on us."

"Yeah and I'm a sniveling fox, haha. Then what will you do if Sachiko caught you?"

"Escape?"

Well she's right but that's beside the point.

"You know what, let's go to the forest and kill that shadow. Okada come with me."

"Sorry my queen but i'll just be on your support if you permit me that is. But I'll ready your transportation "

Then everyone, lets get ready. I'll inform Yuu if she want's to come with us.

And so everyone goes to their respective activities to ready themselves while you go to Yuu's temporary house. Arriving at the area, the truck stil didn't arrive. Must have stucked on a morning rush. You go inside and knock on Yuu's room.

"Yuu? Are you there?"

Nothing. When you try to open the door, it's already unlocked.

"Yuu? I'm coming in alright?"

Opening the door, the room barely have furniture save from a bed, a dresser and a mirror desk with chair. Going to her bed you slowly open the sheets to see......

".......God damn it Yuu."

................................

You run as fast as possible not to miss the school, you have 15 minutes left until the bell rings. There are two options where you could get to the school faster or a little bit late. First is the train which will be leaving shortly in 3 minutes or you could go to the bus where you will be arriving on time but you will be late as you have to run a block away unless you manage to sneak at the back of the school. Still time is running out.

Oh yeah the choices you are making are POV of Yuu not Junko. I really need to find some way to quickly differentiate when I'm transitioning to another person.
>>
>>3298216
do we really need to follow her? we aren't kidnappers and she is perfectly capable of holding her ground. Just send her a text or call her and lets be done with it.

>>3298216
Oh, that makes more sense!

>>
>>3298302
Uh I had a feeling about that after I voted.

>>3298313
This will be time number four Yuu has ran off and tried to get herself killed. If what we know about Sachiko is true Yuu is nowhere close to her league.

But Yuu knows the risk and she wants to go to school. If we wanted to control all of her schedule, we might as well have converted her into a shadow when she wanted to be one.

Changing course, you sprint yourself to the train station where a lot of people are already waiting for the train to arrive. As the train conveniently stop. The flood of people immediately go inside and squish themselves like a pack of sardines forcing their way inside the train. You also force yourself inside the train car and managed to successfully fit inside the god forsaken train. Although a tight fit but you just have to bear with it for 7 minutes.

..............

Arriving at the station, you are 2 blocks away but there is a bus that would lead you to the school bus stop where students can ride it for free. You immediately board up and sit on an empty spot. Looking outside the window, you start to think why would Sachiko try to kill you all one by one. Even though she didn't make an effort to do it, you still can't believe it. And even more so, Kanna is in great danger too. The bus arrived and the students file out where you have 3 minutes to spare. As you go inside, Kanna is the first one to greet you.

"Senpai! Oh I'm so glad you're okay."

"Why?"

"We can't reach you when we tried to call you and when we gone to your home, it's empty. We were worried that something happened."

"Oh! I'm sorry about that. I was with my mother doing something."

"Ah well that is fine. But please call us. I thought something happened to you."

"I will, sorry for worrying you."

You pat Kanna head which she giggles. Then she goes to her room. You did the same too. Opening the door, Sachiko is there writing something. She noticed you entering the room.

"Oh Yuu, good morning. We called you this evening but you didn't pick up. Did something happened?"

"Yeah, family stuff."

"Well I can relate. Sorry if it bothered our calls. Can't be too careful."

"I understand."

Then the homeroom teacher comes in and urge the students to sit down.

"Okay pipe down children. Now we have a new transfer exchange student from Orussia. So without further ado please come in and introduce yourself."

A girl with white hair comes into view as she walks with poise and grace any girls would be. She is like a model. Tall, beautiful and elegant. Everyone who are looking at her took their breath away. She even winked at one guy and he clutched his chest then fell unconcious. The class erupts into tiny squeals and some murmurs from the boys which you can hear a little bit.

Look she is literally like an ice queen personality.

I agree, although I can't stare her in her eyes. Feels like she would kill me with her gaze.

Man if only Junko is here this could be an epic staredown

Shut up! Are you going to make this room sub zero

Forget Junko! Orussian girl please step on me

Shut up Kai!

(1/2)
>>
>>3298476
"Okay Okay.....Please let the new girl introduce."

She then goes to the board and writes her name in a language you can't read and also in Roman alphabet.

"Hello everyone, my name is Natalya Prokhorovka. As you sensei says, I'm your Foreign Exchange student starting today and I will be here for the whole month. There are many thing I want to know about this country and hopefully, I would be friends with you all. Although I may be intimidating at times and in looks but please feel free to approach me."

She bows and everyone claps.

"So Porkor.ha...no seriously can I call you Natalya? Seems your surname is a mouthful to say. Sorry about that."

"It's okay sensei. So which spot should I sit."

Everyone pointed beside you. Which is Junko seat.

I mean our black ice queen is not here so the throne for the new one will be given to her right?

Every boys agrees.

But you....you don't even know what to feel. Natalya stares at you and she smiles, a smile so gentle you wonder how genuine that is. Looking at Sachiko, she just thumbs up.

>Alright.....she can come here and sit beside me

You shake your head and instead point the seat behind yours.

"I believe this seat is also available. Or would it be good if Ms. Natalya should sit in front? It would help her to catch up our studies."

Come on Mitsukoshi-san, I mean Kurosaki is not here.

You try to ignore what she says. You are calm as a gentle flowing spring.

Yeah, I mean when did we hear about her last time?

4 months ago? Maybe she was kidnapped by that shady group or worse killed by so-

You slammed your hand in the table and startled the whole class. You stand up and shouted.

"STOP!!"

Everyone shuts up.

"You don't fucking know what she is right now. Heck she is probably out there afraid of what is happening right now. You don't know her, in fact why are you even suggesting she is already not here?"

Then Natalya starts to speak...

"I agree with Mitsukoshi-san. As long as she is missing, there is still possibility that she is out there. In any case, I will support you Mitsukoshi-san. I hope your friend will be found."

Then everyone gives you their support and their apologies. The lot of them. Just because someone more popular arrive have a say doesn't mean they would also agree. You sulk at your seat while your sensei just leaning on the wall. Then he says.

"Ristuko, principals office after this. Natalya-san, go behind Yuu's seat. Everyone now focus cause we gonna start the class. Now open page no......."

And so the class started with the new transfer student infront of Yuu. This is probably the new girl Sachiko told you about yesterday. You then try to focus your head on the coming class.

.........................

You arrive at the mountainside where Okada detected the shadow. The helicopter drops down on a clearing which ready camping grounds. You, Marie and Raye slowly jumps down the helicopter and then flies away. You open your phone where there is barely any signal but still you try anyway.

"My queen? Sorry for not coming there. Like I said, If I go out, it would paint us a big target since I can't control my corruptive energy which any MG would immediately pick it up. Instead, I'll provide support here on the backlines.

"Sounds good. I'll drop the call now so we can test that you and Raye did."

You gave them a few minutes until Raye something

"My queen, Okada says the shadow is over there."

You then start to trek the grassy field. Marie elects to scout ahead again while Raye is in front of you, leading to the said shadow. After a little while, a pungent smell and corruption can be felt.

"You smell that my queen?"

"Yeah. Means we are closer."

Marie comes to your position.

"Junko.....uhmm"

"What is it Marie?"

"Can we skip this? It's disgusting."

"Why?"

"I think it may involve something about my puke."

You remember back when Marie was still Mary, she dragged you to the mountainside without water. Then you drank at the nearby spring and......

"You can't be serious."

You run to the direction where the smell becomes stronger and then you see it. A big pile of trash, dead animals, rotten tree barks, and weird mushroom.

"Well how should we approach this?"

The shadow is in the center with all manners of trash. While the smell is bad enough. It was bearable. Or at least you will bare it until its killed.

reading Raye's skills gave me an idea:
We still have our "Inner Light" functional and it needs to be contained with corruption, otherwise it overwhelm us and destroy us.
Raye can cast normal spells and probably Light based ones too, but she doesn't have any light in herself because she is a shadow.
what if we work as Raye's energy source? in that way we don't need to have sakura blocking the Light and we can put it to more productive uses.
>>
I realized that Junko is missing a couple of skills. Didn't she pick up Elemental Magic and Firestorm from corrupting Rei. If the black hole fails Junko and Reye can both use firestorm on the trash and well...https://youtu.be/1L2qXzMS9Tg

Make a handkerchief to wear either bandito or k/da style to block out the smell.

>Remember how a recycling plant works? A magnet to grab the metal. Paper would just float on the surface of water(or burning) Then we'd only have to deal with the plastic and misc.

I think Marie's been making new shadows with her puke? The drug shadow is suspect and I figure that's more due to the actual drugs being bizarrely addictive and Yuu's rampage than Marie puking rainbows, but we might need a boating trip anyway. I'm guessing Marie's shadow is actually over capacity or something since while we've been sharing with her, she doesn't have to keep a giant blob of shadow allocated towards not burning up. I guess we get Raye to research on that?
>>
>>3299870
But Marie's puke on the harbor was different from the one on the forest....but on that note, what if marie's rainbow puke converted one addict or hobo into a magical girl?
>>
>>3299946
That's why I found things weird about it.
At the least she's "excreting" excess darkness since I guess that's how shadows spread/reproduce, but the rainbow vomit doesn't really match up with the drug thing?(So I'm guessing we have some weird hybrid monster or shadow stalking the harbor (which would explain why it wasn't easy to find like how Junko isn't easy to find compared to regular shadows) or that the rainbow puke is gonna make the new transfer student into a magical girl if she isn't one already.)
Gonna need to find a way to get that under control before our team plunges the whole city into darkness.
>>
>>3300123
>but the rainbow vomit doesn't really match up with the drug thing
Chances are that the rainbow puke will convert someone into a magical girl(who was the lucky one will be the fun thing to discover)
>our team plunges the whole city into darkness.
as long as we keep cosuming the shadows we create, there shouldn't be any problem.

The new student is a magical girl hunter, a rogue agent, or someone along those lines.

Or it's Arc in disguise. (or a partner/backup.) Or a million other ideas. I could be paranoid but there is a really large shadow population in that city.

"Marie, cover me. Raye, start slinging spells on the shadow.

Both of them give their affirmatives and get into position. Raye starts casting Firestorm onto the shadow. It sizzles anything burnable but it watery body puts off the fire that makes a stinky steam. You decide to conjure a handkerchief and cover your nose and mouth. Mary elect on a fancy one. A facemask with many intricate designs. While Raye also have a facemask but it would be more akin as halfmask as it covers anything below her eyes. Raye resumes slinging her spells while you start readying your black hole onto your palm.

"Marie, defend me."

Marie goes into your front and into a guarding stance. The boss is very agitated now and started throwing. Raye tries to dodge or at least hide on the trees. Your chance while the boss is distracted.

What do you guys think about digging a pit and then leisurely finishing it off? Basically making a landfill or garbage pit to contain it? The only skills I can think of that would make said pit offhand are the black hole ones though so It's a bit of a gamble on if we want to make a bigger one.

the problem with black hole is that its a literal black hole: we won't be able to gain any corruption from it because it sucks things and then for all intetns and purposes, said items are destroyed forever because we don't know where the items end up at(if they end up at some place and arent just outright destroyed).
Also, if we launch it, there is a huge chance that it will become unstable and explode unlike anything we have seen before. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8nHBGFKLHZQ
But then again, this is a magical black hole and real life science gets thrown out of the window, although the exploding part might be useful for us later on.

"Rei, keep distracting the boss. Marie join her."

"What about you?"

"Then it's your job to not let it notice me"

"Alright, I'll go."

Marie jump from tree to tree as she goes to Raye. Sadly the boss throw something at Marie. A can. It hit squarely on his head. Visibly hurt, she faced the shadow.

"You stupid stinky shadow! You don't do that to me."

Then the boss throw a small pebble, another soda can, a broken phone (probably submerged from the water), a baseball, football, volleyball, basketball and lastly a whole drum of black unkown substance. All squarely hit on Maries head. She flops down and shouted from the stinky smell.Raye can't help but giggle at the display and you did your best not to laugh. Sorry Marie, this is for the greater good.

"Hang in there Marie, I'll make it up to you"

Marie stands up and gives you a middle finger.

"Easy for you to say, I think even a million show will never make me clean."

"Just distract it for now! I know you can do it."

Raye also join in..

"Yeah Marie, do it for the queen. She enjoys you being dirty anyway."

Then Marie snaps. Marie pick up the baseball and hit Raye on the head. He drops down to the ground but not without the boss vomiting a black mud thingy. Raye stands up feeling disgusted.

"Wow, thanks Marie. Were even now right?"

"Yes......"

"Guys! Stop fighting and start slinging the boss."

Marie tries to throw the basketball back to the boss but not without slippering from the ground. Must have the mud that boss thrown out is slippery. Yet for some reason the ball thrown into you. You just go to the side and easily dodges it. The boss took notice of this and turned around until it faced you. Marie stands up who is nursing her elbow from the fall.

"Uh....sorry Junko. My hand sli........slipped."

The boss roar at you and starts to throw a....

1. A small stone
2. A car
3. A really big stone

It seems like Marie is losing control over her inner shadow. Seems like we might need to assess her situation and see if we can help her get some of her old hope back. We might want to hold the corruptive essence of this boss for her.

That's fair but Junko didn't laugh at Marie, Raye did. It's not Marie's first random outburst and seems to be having more and more trouble with impulse control. Plus, her comment about being a full shadow from an update or two is worrying considering that Mari's personality could not have come back without her maintaining some amount of hope. Marie is our offense in fights so I don't want anything to happen to her with all of the ones looming on the horizon.

We have to remember that this isn't Mari, but a combination between her blood thirsty shadow and the shy but haughty girl. From the moment she became Marie she has told us that she has these kind of outbursts, so it doesn't really surprises me that she reacts like this, but its wise to take into consideration that maybe the bat DID slip: after all, she is covered in unknown goop and mud.

You ignored Mary for a second and run towards the boss. The bat sails past at you and run through the shadow. The boss starts slinging mud at you with and intention to make a slippery field but that shadow failed to do so as it sucked literally whatever it throws.

"Wait.....I can't cast my spells."

"Me too, fuck this boss I'm so angry right now."

You throw the black hole to the boss and it starts sucking.....until a several crumpled mountain bikes stuck at you black hole. You start to scratch your head as how is this possible. It should have bend everything whether they are metal or not. The hole still sucking until it dissipates.

"Well, that almost worked."

The boss again tries to throw you a....

"Dispel"

The black goo immediately washes out which Raye test if she can do a spell again. It worked but Marie complains.

"At least do something about the smell."

"I can't do something like that. Start killing that shadow because the early we can kill this thing. The better."

Marie unleashes a barrage of shadow arrows which do nothing but absorb. She stops and raised her hand.

"I'm officially useless here."

She then go to a clearing behind a tree to hide and sit sulkily. Raye do her best to cast firestorm to the boss melting plastics and anything that could be burned. The boss moves closer to the trees while Raye keeps casting firestorm to keep it from moving from the side and let it stay at the center......until Raye spell catches one tree on fire.

"Raye! Stop!!"

It's too late. The fire is getting bigger although a little slow due to the tree have a little moist around the bark. Your only concern is due to the branches are a little dry and with the heat of the sun, it will only spread. You spawn several shadowshades and attack the boss shadow. But all it do but to distract it due to its body a muddy one. With no other choice. You inquire Sakura on how to defeat this shadow.

>"Hey Sakura, do you know how to beat a stinky muddy shadow?"

Ugh.....that one? Please don't tell me you got hit by that.

>"No I don't"

Well it's not my idea but it was Yuuki idea. I mean she likes to blow everything up. She say that shadow is like a septic tank so there would be a high chance that it would produce a little bit of methane. So get a methane gas like for cooking lug in onto a body and blow it up. Works everytime. And if it doesn't work, lug more methane gas and blow it up again.

>"Let me guess? We are going to make a methane gas bomb. Is that what you said?"

Do you have any more ideas? Count your blessings because you are fighting on a forest. We have to be sneaky because that fight was on the industrial zone. The news thought it was a bomb.

The shadow itself is a pressure vessel like a septic tank building up methane (at least what I can interpret from the update). Either we heat it by starting a forest fire or puncture it with a flaming arrow.

>>3301231
He speaks the truth. We need a pressure vessel hence Sakura wants you to get a methane pressurized gas from any gas stations who probably uses gas stoves and shove it inside to maximize whatever Sakura thinks.

>"I don't like it but hell. Let's do it. Let's set a peaceful forest into a blazing inferno."

"Raye, start doing the firestorm around the trees to prevent the shadow to escape."

Raye starts to burn the nearby trees surrounding you with the heat of the burning trees, and the burning hot daylight. At this point you are now showering with sweat. Marie goes to your position as you could definitely smell the thing she said earlier.

"Well, I have an idea what kind of smell you have right now."

"I think so too. So what is the plan?"

"The shadow is like a....well septic tank."

"Oh god, you said it. I don't want to speak about it but you said it."

"Shut up and listen. You see this shadow has THAT and it releases a little bit of methane gasses. So we need something a high concentration of methane gas. Something like pressurized gas or better a liquified petroleum gas."

"Well, we don't really need to set the whole perimeter on fire if you plan to get that pressurized methane gas you know? What if I transported it here and get exposed to the heat that it will blow on my face?"

You summon a shield onto the oncoming big bike which you swat it away easily.

"Well I have an idea."

"Marie, can you see any gas tanks in that pile of muck?"

"No, but we can try call Uncle to drop us off several tanks of methane LGP."

"Raye, go call Okada and transport us several tanks of methane LPG and drop it here."

The shadow throws you a big rotten bark which you cut in half with your sword. You and Raye then circled the boss throwing fireball to distract it. After several minutes of distraction, the helicopter arrives and drops 5 LPG's on the ground.

"Marie, open the valve and toss it here. Be careful. It's hot here."

Marie did her thing and start throwing it on the shadow which it immediately swallows. After the 5th one you called Raye.

"Raye! Firestorm NOW!"

You and Raye with the combined effort, tried to burn the shadow. The shadow wailed but the tank still didn't explode.

"Try harder Raye!!"

Both of you sweat from the sweltering heat from your spell, the forest fire in your back and the heat of the sun. But because of the heat, instead of making the LPG blow up inside, instead it hardens it's skin which you promptly stop.

"Wait, Raye stop or we cannot blow that LPG inside."

The arrow sails past you and swallowed it whole. You waited for it to blow. Then the arrow. You hear a small explosion but that's it.

"Maybe it didn't hit the tank inside?"

"You know what....I'll do this."

"What about that Marie?"

"This one....EXPLODING SHADOWRAIN"

Marie drops thousands of shadow arrows to the big shadow boss and stabs it everywhere. Then with an explosion the hardened skin of the shadow blown into chunks. Although it worked a little bit, it wasn't enough for the boss to fall down.

"Junko, look! An opening!"

Surely there is a hole and it was quickly closing in.

With the searing heat of everything around you, the boss starts to bloat in size, threatening to blow. You and Raye goes back until the shadow cannot contain it massive size. Raye jump out of the area and you pick Marie slumped body out of the blasting area and then....

......................

*Meanwhile in Ryumeki Inn*

A couple comes in excited to have their honeymoon in the old inn they really want to stay. Then they were greeted by the inn owner.

"Welcome to the Ryumeki Inn dear customer. We pride ourselves in the quiet and scenic nature of our inn. The place is so quiet you can hear the birds sing and we don't kid. If we are proved wrong, then we offer our services for free.

BOOOOOOOOOM!!

"..........."

"Please enjoy your free stay here dear customer."

The couple high fived each other and act lovely dovey. As the inn owner turned around to show their room she muttered.

"I swear those kids are doing it again."

........................

A big crater appears where the shadow last stood. Even though there are traces of its body around, yet you defeated the shadow.

"Well....that was hard."

"I agree my queen."

"Can we go home now? We stink so much."

"I agree, but......how are we gonna put out this fire?"

The forest is still burning and hell you don't know how to deal with this.

"My queen look."

Raye points out something in the middle of the crater, as you check it out, you were shocked from what you saw. Something that you never thought of seeing.

A HOPE ESSENCE!!

That's it for today. We will resume again tomorrow.

well that wasn't what I was expecting. Junko is going to have to talk to sakura if the girls can use that or we might have to give it to Yuu or Do we know some girl who might want to become a magical girl. Also I thought only magical girl shadows dropped hope essences. Did we just kill some poor girl?
>>
>>3301714
shadows have a chance of dropping a hope essence. that's how Yuu and junko got their tandem powers and how sakura managed to inhabit junko's body. I was thinking on maybe giving it to raye or Marie, but since they don't have someone that can seal the light core, it might not be the best idea.
>>
>>3301718
I was thinking about giving it to Marie too. We need to find out what combing a hope essence with a corrupted girl would do. I thought Junko's issue was she built up a ton of hope energy, didn't use it, the expelled a lot of corruption making Raye. Thus causing her collapse. It could make Marie independent like Junko, or kill her. We just don't know yet.
>>
>>3301721
Maybe the best thing we can do right now is to haul it, leave it in the lowest level of okada's mansion and experiment with it (maybe use it to make camouflages?) . then we need to find a way to use up the excess hope energy we have. We simply can't have Sakura holding it on her own by herself for ever.
>>
>>3301726
This is probably a crazy idea.

>When fighting a shadow, there might be a chance to instead giving a hope essence. When a normal person, a female one touches it. She transforms into a magical girl

Notice there is no age restriction on becoming a magical girl, you just need a biological female and a hope essence...
What if Junko give the hope essence to her Mom? We were thinking about breaking the masquerade at least for Junko's mom anyway. What better way to let her in on the secret and make sure she can defend herself? Plus she is the only other uncorrupted female besides Yuu that Junko trusts.

Plus think of how strong she could get. A widowed mother hoping against all hope to save her only daughter. You hear stories about average soccer moms pushing overturned cars off of their kids in a panic. What would happen if she did become a magical girl if she found out almost everything and how screwed Junko is Arc better watch out there is another blazing sun on the scene.

I was talking about raw hope output but yeah sachiko might have an issue dealing with a grown woman (if Kurosaki doesn’t underestimate sachiko like Sakura’s group did.) This made me think of something, as much as I should be trying to get some sleep. How can Sachiko even use her powers? Sociopathy wouldn’t shield her from corruptive emotions regarding herself. It would just keep her from feeling emotions for other people. We know that Sachiko is the really jealous type from Sakura and the video game flashback. What if she is a hybrid like Junko? She got jealous of some girl with powers (Maybe that half-sister she impersonated), became a shadow, ate the other girl, and is now desperately gobbling up hope essence to keep herself “normal” but keeps burning through it with corruption because she is a shit person (Thus, avoiding the build up problem Junko has. Other than being a little standoff-ish and revenge aside—Junko really isn’t that evil and Darth Plagueis-ing magical girls takes a shit ton of corruption) Either that or she may be the experiment from four years ago that The Organization was talking about.
>>
>>3301787
>How can Sachiko even use her powers?
Multiclassing is my best guess. For example, she might not be as strong as us with a sword, or as strong as marie with a bow, but she can use both abilities and cover the weaknesess of each.
>she may be the experiment or is another gestalt like us
...that might be probable, but if she is the experiment, we have no idea of what she is capable of.
>>
>>3301794
I meant without falling to corruption. Once the girls pass a certain emotional point they lose their powers. I think being Jealous enough to commit at least four murders counts enough. unless Sachiko is mindwiping herself but that would make long term planning really difficult. We finally get Junko to investigate Sachiko’s room and she finds something strait out of “Memento”.
>>
>>3301799
>I meant (murdering?)without falling to corruption.
Sociopathy fits quiet well there. If sashiko has that condition and she sees befriending and murdering her friends as a way to get stronger, she will do it and fake her emotions so that nobody bats an eye at her.
>>
>>3301554
He rolled a 100
>>
>>3301787
My theory is that she used whatever artifact was talking about to make herself a gestalt like us. She was roughly doing what we were capable of as a shadow and directly absorbing MG powers after all.
We're just the latest experiment to make a working copy and possibly the only one that hasn't fizzled out after she breached some threshold or powerlevel ratio thanks to Sakura being both sapient and having MG knowledge.

TLDR she stole her plot idea from Aizen.
*
Of course that's not factoring in any of my previous off the wall ideas but that seems enough for a basic guess at what she's doing.
*
The "scarier" issue at hand is what she wants to do with a finished prototype(if that wasn't some elaborate setup to make a "friend" like her)
Sakura probably wont be a help in figuring things out on that front since she'd have noticed we're Sachiko experiment x.0 unless we accidentally made her more lucid over time via light exposure? (Similar to how Marie and Okada have started having old personality traits resurface upon exposure to us?)
>>
>>3301836
it was a 90 -10 because the bonuses are always in negative. so, 80.

>>3302239
I don't think that the item that was stolen was sashiko or something that managed to fall into her hands, the time tables just don't add up. Maybe it is the reason that the city has unusual corruption spikes, but if she had it, her plans wouldn't take that long.

A hope essence, where any girl would touch this, became a magical girl. To drop something like this is akin to finding a needle in the middle of dessert. It's just too rare. Yet you encountered two. Does that mean you are lucky? Nonetheless you need to bring this one.

"My queen, just a reminder but we still have a burning forest."

So a hope essence and a burning forest.

I think it's an entirely separate artifact. The organization just has a general idea to panic because they roughly recognize the effects. If a person made something once, then it's possible for another human to independently make it again. Electricity and radio have about three different inventors who independently discovered them at almost the same time.(Assuming I remember the right inventions correctly) Darwin actually ran into a random scmuch who had the entirety of the theory of evolution casually written out before Darwin even published his theory of evolution. (Darwin then tossed his only notes/copies right off the boat )(I hope Im remembering the right dude)
Basically never bet on there only being one of something.

>I think it's an entirely separate artifact/no idea has a single genesis.
It's possible that The Organization was experimenting with sentient shadows four years ago, realized that a sentient shadow isn't just a threat to other shadows but could spread its corruption like a virus to other girls, and thus shut the project down. Then three years ago, Sakura had the same idea or found out about it some how (The Organization could have shut down its project by killing the shadow) while chilling in the void.

"Raye can you use ice blast to contain the fire?"

"Okada says that if I use anything that would freeze, I think the scientist would come here as to why a forest fire method of putting fire is to sling a couple of ice and frozen trees. We don't want some kind of government organization chasing us."

"Alright, call the firefighters then."

"Already there, we just need to get out of here."

As you approach the essence, you can feel the heat emanating from the essence. Your shadowy self hiss at the big bright ball of hope. You scoop it up and try to carry it as far as your hand can stay away from your body.

"Alright, let's go"

Raye carried Marie and you transported the hope essence in your hand. while trying to ignore the burning sensation.

.....................

*Lunch break at school*

"Girls, let me meet you Natalya-san. She will help us tracking the girls who are missing. Natalya-san, this is Yuu and Kanna."

"Woaaaaaaaaahhhhhh Natalya-san nice to meet you. I mean are you really a foreinger!! Oh my gosh this is my first time to meet someone like you i mean kyaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa <3 >.<"

"Kanna please calm down, you're bothering everyone. Anyway I'm Yuu, nice to meet you."

Natalya smiles at Kanna while she shakes you hand. Then she speaks..

"Say Mitsukoshi-san, I was curious as to why your friend is still "missing". Pray tell did you know about her?"

Maybe you have talk too much but you can get out of this......right?

>She may not be here but I won't let anyone backtalk my friends

"Sorry about the outburst. She was my dearest friend and hit a sore spot inside me."

"Yeah! Tell me who said that Yuu-senpai, I'll beat them, I swear on my mom."

"Now, now Kanna. Anyway Natalya, like I said, our member suddenly disappeared one by one. First was Mari. This was her message but we all agreed that this isn't Mari who sent this. The recent one is Rei and we haven't heard about her."

Natalya thinks about what Sachiko says. Then she nods.

"Then shall we investigate first? You can go find some clues about Rei while I'll go find some clues about Mari."

"Yeah, I feel that something is missing."

Kanna immediately raises her hands.

"Oh! Oh! Can I pair with Natalya? Please please pleaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaase."

"Sure, I'll pair with Yuu and investigate Rei's house."

"YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY, thanks Sachiko-senpai. Natalya-san please be kind to me."

"Of course. Let's find Mari shall we?"

"Nnnn!"

................................

Arriving at Okada's mansion. You go inside the mansion and several shadow part like sea of moses when you walk through the basement. The hope energy is so strong that even the weaker shadows dissipated from the mere sight of them. Even putting it on the basement. The whole area illuminated the whole room. Truly an example of shining hope. You summon all of them again at Okada's office on what to do on that essence you get.

"So were here again to discuss what should we do on that essence."

Marie raises her hand.

"Can we throw it away?"

"No, denied."

"I want to eat it but I think my throat would burn.if I try to....."

Then Okada suggest something

"How about you inject it with corruption. Then eat it? In all manners, it's still a hope essence only corrupted. Although I don't know what kind of powers she would get.

"NO WAY!! I won't get a power that makes me stink everyday. Yuck."

"What about you Raye?"

"We can give it to another person, but if she founds out, she will be our enemy. It is best to find out more about that thing."

Well they given their answers.

"No."
"No."
"No."

"....What's with the sudden denial?"

"Not to offend my queen but any parent would be introduced with this kind of power, she will literally stick like a leech. Or maybe she will beat us dead for associating with bad people, or even worse she will kill us all. No exceptions."

"Yeah, no parent would let their child go through dangers. Wish my parents care though."

"I do not have what you called parents my queen but it would severely limiting out options if you want to give it to her."

"Alright, I get your concerns. We can just research it until we can safely do something about it."

All of them breathe a sigh of relief, they must not have wanted to make your mom become a magical girl. Now that you think about it, what would it be if your mom becomes magical girl?

"Okada, any new shadows popping up? We are need to powe up Marie and Raye. Did you never run into a doctor that noticed you were dead? Maybe we should try and figure out exactly what was done to me and how it differs from everyone else?"

"No shadows as of yet, and no, I didn't try to go to a doctor. I won't really try to attract many science nerds about my....mystery. I even heard there was a scientist who is studying a psychological trait of a person who ended missing only to be found in a vegetative state."

"Is he alive?"

"No, not that I heard about him."

"Well hold it that for now, Marie come with me."

"Then my queen, I'll be on my way."

All of them file out of Okada's office. You and Marie go inside your room."

"Thank you for all your help in the last few days but I can't help but worry about you, Marie. Are you feeling okay?"

"It's fine, I....I'm sorry to. I really don't know how you feel. I mean I didn't have any friends until I met all of you."

"It's fine, It gave me some time to think about things too. Perhaps I was too rash. But anyway,You seem to be having trouble resisting your impulses, is it too hard to hold it out?"

"I admit, I was really mad. It feels the more I am frustrated, the more my shadows growl to let out. I mean if that shadow throw another of that black goop, I would transform into.....something else."

"Must be that black aura that covers you. Experienced it once."

"Huh....well that's bad right?"

"Lost any sense of thinking. The only thing in your mind is to kill."

"I'll try not to be pissed with anything very simple as that."

"Anyway that's all for now. Go have some fun with Raye."

Marie nods and goes out of your room. You sit on the comfy soft bed and call Sakura in your mind.

>"Hey, any ideas what to do with the essence?"

Well you can give it to another girl then corrupt her.

Okay, how about call your new minion and I'm going to scan her, see if we can do something about it similar to yours.

Well, I'm going to scan her and give her a small portion of hope essence. Enough for her corrupted core to light with hope. It was similar when you are meditating yourself and achieve half of your being with hope and half with your shadow. Although she is going to find it herself and cultivate that light.

Time to make Raye and Marie into proper Dark magical girls(if Marie wants: raye is still too basic for any kind of substantial independent thought right now).
>>
>>3304158

>"Marie? Call Raye and come downstairs. Have something to do with you two."

>"Alright, give us some time."

You proceed yourself to the 2nd basement where you put the hope essence in your makeshift torture chamber. Some minutes later. Both of them go inside.

"Girls, I may have found some way to handle some hope energy a little less of a burning hot sun into a bearable state. All you need to do is to dip a little bit of hope energy inside."

"Can I back out now? I think this is a bad idea."

"I second the motion my queen."

"How about stop complaining and do as what I said."

"For some reason, I kinda want to run now but with your words, I don't have anything to say NO to that."

"Me too, because queen words is absolute."

"Really? I was not threatening you though."

Both of them look at each other and both of them said.

"We we're scared with our butts saying that."

Interesting, now let me scan Marie first.

You extend your hand and start with her head. Marie tilt her head in confusion and you start to hover it lower until her feet.

Do the same to Raye

And so you did. After the scan Sakura gave her results to you.

So Marie has a dual personality, we can put Marie the light one while the other one....was it Mary? Well whatever. I mean give the other the shadow one. Although I don't know which personality will win. Since both of the personality only coexist because they are all the same spectrum. A corruptive shadow. While Raye on the other hand is the easiest. The hope energy that will imbue to her will fix whatever that was broken inside her. Although the problem is, how much of it can be fixed. It could be a little bit, it could be a whole one. Nonetheless it would be a random one. I will leave it to you what to decide with it.

So to surmise, If you want to fix Marie with her hope energy to be same as yours, the Mary inside will clash with Marie who will inherit the hope energy. You won't know what will happen which one should win. Or you restore Raye with her previous personality. The problem is, how much would it be to fix itself.

"Junko?"
"My queen?"

You both look at them and....

Tell the girls what they would be in for and that you would be willing to help them:

>" I know it's really scary, but you girls really are my friends. I would want this if I was in your position but this is going to be more complicated than I thought."

>"Marie, you've save my life and helped me more times than I can count. I don't just want you to be a puppet for me or your corruptive impulses. I owe this to you. It won't be easy though. I thought you fused with Mary back at the inn, but you are really two distinct personalities. Mary is a good girl; I think I can help you commune with her and work something out. It would be best if both of you could meet in the middle rather than trying to destroy each other by fighting over who the dominant personality is."

>"I meant what I said at the inn. I know what it's like to be lonely. I wanted to give you a second chance--to make up for what you did to me and to have real friends. I'm sorry; I never meant to make it this complicated." Hug Marie

>"Raye, I never intended to do this to you. I wanted to teach you some grand lesson about messing with other people's minds and what it's like being a shadow--when you can't even trust your own mind--the plan backfired though. In hindsight, it's better your here now because Sachiko would have just killed you if she found you like I intended. Still you were being manipulated and I went too far. I'm sorry; will you still be my friend?"

>"Raye, before I met you were really corrupted and doing really disgusting things. It was my fault. I want to help you and this would give you back part of your old self...I just don't know how much it would fix. You have a fresh start right now and I don't want to ruin it for you." Hug Raye

>"Girls I want to help both of you. It's the right thing to do, but I won't do anything without your permission. Please, think about this."

Order some food and have fun with the girls:
>"We have done way too much serious stuff over the past couple of days. Let's get some food. We could order something in have some fun."

I think it's fair to make them choose on their own. But I would doubt that they would go back to where they want to feel the shitty thing call despair.

>>
>>3304528
Its more complex than that. we are telling them to consume the very thing that can kill them and raye wasn't in a bad place before being corrupted, and in Marie's case, she has the free will(or the illusion of it) to outright say no.

"Girls, I know that this may be intimidating for now and I felt like I forced it on you but you are my friends. I would be scared at first too and its going to be complicated that I first thought. But if you want to choose this, you can tap to your power and a little bit of your humanity albeit only half. Marie, you've saved my life and helped me more times than I can count.

"Junko......"

You come close to her and hug. She also receives it.

"Raye, before I met you were really corrupted and doing really disgusting things. It was my fault. I want to help you and this would give you back part of your old self...I just don't know how much it would fix. You have a fresh start right now and I don't want to ruin it for you now, I never intended to do this to you.

I'm sorry; will you still be my friend?"

"I don't understand my queen. You don't need apologies to me. But from what you said, if my previous self of me did something horrible. Then I would instead apologize to you. I will do anything what you will do my queen. Just give me the order and I will do it. Even if it kills me."

Raye prostrates herself on the floor grinding her forehead on a cold concrete floor. You help her up not wanting that kind of display she give to you.

"Girls, I want to help you both, I really do. I mean it's the only right thing to do. But I won't do anything without your permission. Please, think about this."

Both of them look at each other and then nods. Marie speak first.

"I appreciate about thinking of us Junko....no my queen. And I thank you for it. But I choose to be like this. When back then, I really needed a friend. When I see you both with Yuu, I was jealous. Wish that I have someone like you. That is why I always invite you two. Hoping that I would be included in your circle. But then I realized that friends can be forged in time and that is what I don't have. I even tried bribing you with different kinds of items. Thinking about it, it's very funny. Both of you don't like beauty products. You only like games, Yuu likes teddy bear and food. I even thought you would like dresses. Only Yuu likes and even then, she would avoid branded ones and settle for a simple attire. I was truly pathetic one, worming my way into your friendship with money. But still you showed me that I don't need money to have friends. Look at me, I don't have anything. I don't even have money but I enjoyed every single time with you. I feel liberated from all the shitty things I feel. I can only think what I would think right now. Junko, you gave me the best second chance you ever gave to me. I won't waste this chance and even then, I cannot repay you in whatever you have gave to me. But......I have to choose no. This is you gift to me, your second chance as you said. It would be hyprocrite of me to give me what I cast my humanity away. And, I'm scared. I'm scared that I would feel the feeling of loneliness, the feeling of being nothing but money. That's why I will refuse. I'm sorry."

"My queen. I don't have any memories of my previous self but I do remember something. Baking is my passion and seeing you looking at the slowly cooking pastry, I glimpse something I would never though me to see. Your smile. It was then that I would bake anything you want. Even though I was pretty lost to myself, you are there for me even you are busy. But you said to me that I was a disgusting person. I know apologies cannot undo from what I have done in the past. But as Marie said, you also gave me a second chance even though you haven't said it. Or maybe you forsake me. Nonetheless, I don't want to bring back the disgusting person that you have mentioned. I will also refuse."

"Alright, I understand. But let me know if you change your mind."

Both of them didn't say something.

"I understand about your decisions right now. I guess Marie, I can see what you meant. Although I don't want you to make you suffer with your urges. Also Raye, I know that I may have taken you something that I can't take back but you have a fresh start. You can do it as you see fit with your new ones. Now that is done lets...."

All three of your stomachs growl. But Marie is the one clutching her stomach more.

"I think I may have inherited Mary stomach. I mean I don't eat a lot but......"

"I'll bake some muffins then."

"REALLY!"

"Of course."

"MAKE A LOT OF BATCH PLEASE!!"

You smile at both of them as Marie demands a different kinds of muffins which Raye can only nods as she memorize whatever Marie says. You excuse yourself and go to your room to relax a little bit.

...........................

*Sachiko and Yuu at Rei's house after school*

You and Sachiko are standing at the gate of her house. Although you already know that Raye is already at Junko's side but you can't help but investigate it with Sachiko.

"Seems she isn't home."

"But Sachiko, that would be like home invasion."

"We can excuse ourself as Rei's friend. We have proof to boot. She didn't come to class for two days and that is worrying."

"Yeah, sorry. Let's go in then."

You both go inside the gate and look around the lawn area. Nothing of note that there is a kidnapper or any burglar who goes in. After going around the house, you knock on the door.

"Rei? Are you there?"

Nothing....You knock again.

"Maybe we should go in now Yuu."

"Alright."

Opening the door, you were greeted by the heavy stench of corruption. Both of you jumped back from the black mist and covered your nose.

"What the hell is happening here."

"Yuu, let's go inside! Rei might be in danger!"

Sachiko rushes inside while you trail behind him, running to the second floor where the corruption is heavy. Sachiko kicked the door open to see 5 Shadowshades inside. Immediately you both transform.

"Yuu back me up."

Sachiko brandishes her gun.as you stand there looking shocked. Just what did Junko do?

You buff yourself with Evasion making yourself very nimble. As Sachiko fires the gun, emptying it's load. She then throws it on the shadow which stabs on the shadow in the bed. You then try to fight the shadow that's on the bookshelf. To be honest. This fight is hard when there isn't a lot of room to maneuver.

"Yuu, the room is a very tight fit, let's get out and call Kanna and Natalya."

"Got it."

You rush out while Sachiko is gunning and throwing them like javelin onto the tailing shadowspectre. Grabbing your phone, you dial Kanna phone.

"Kanna? Are you there? There is a problem in Rei's house. Come here quick!"

After the call, Sachiko manage to kill 1 shadowspectre. Both of you got out the house and into the yard. The four shadowspectres are eyeing you menacingly.

"Let's split with two. hold out until Kanna and Natalya arrives."

You nod. And both of you attack at the spacious yard Fukuda owns.

Raye muffins are really a great treat to eat. Marie is already asleep in her chair as she nurse her stomach and making mini-burps. Or was is snore?

"My queen, excuse me for I will be on the library."

"Sure, thanks for the meal."

She bows and goes on her way. You pick up Marie and piggy back ride her. Then you open her room, put her to bed and tucked her in. You go to Okada's office to know whatever happened to that forest you burned down.

"Okada, how is the forest?"

"Already contained. But they are still blowing water on the embers. The damage wasn't that extensive due to the trees that were burned are from a small clearing. It was a good PR to me too as the first one to respond while those government schmuck comes 5 minutes later. Well I already offered to plant trees on the area for...*ahem* some incentives."

"Well good. Anything else?"

"Yes, the blinking shadow. I was monitoring the shadow but this time, she is inside on one spot. I don't know when she will move but I just want to let you know. "

"Where?"

"She is on one of the residential areas."

"Alright."

"My queen, wait for a minute."

"Yes Okada?"

"Did......did my niece want to go back as...as a human again?"

"I don't know Okada, but it would be her decision. What about you?"

"Nah, I'm pretty content with what I have. I can also help in many ways you know. Also thanks for that my queen."

You walk out of the room and stretch youself. It was a long day but still, there are things to do.

Well you promised you mother to meet you at the new house so it would be nice to drop off there. Going outside, you go to your supposed to be new house from Yuu's mother.

.........

Opening the door, you were greeted by the loud voice of Yuu's mother.

"Can't you believe it that my distant relative have this big house? I almost even forgot that I have a distant relative. I mean they are distant so I would probably know but that isn't the case. This house is too big for the two of us to live in. I can't wait to call my husband for this. He would be gobsmacked. I mean, We can even fit 3 families here and there is still so much space. We could easily fit 30 people here."

"Now now Mrs. Mitsukoshi, I think you are exaggerating. for now, let's move some of the things in our room."

"I'm hooooome."

"Yuu is that you?"

"No, it's me."

"Oh my gosh, Junko! You're already here? I mean....what is the meaning of this Kurosaki-san?"

"Ah....about that, you see, she already contacted me 3 weeks ago so I only kept quiet about it."

"Oh? why?"

"I think my daughter would explain why though."

The two mothers stare at you feeling that they are trying to bore your body with holes. You almost forgot how intimidating mothers can be.

"I....uh....."

>How will you explain to the two mothers about you missing for the whole 2 months?

>I was kidnapped?
>I was uh...pranked?

>I was kidnapped. Mrs. Mitsukoshi, I’m not really comfortable talking about what happened in public yet. I wanted to talk to my mom alone first. *Tear up a bit*

>Mrs. Mitsukoshi and Mom you both need to keep quiet about me being back. The same human trafficking ring took me first, then Mari. They knew personal details about us—stuff that only our close friends, or maybe a teacher would know, our routines, how to find us alone, and take us without being caught. I haven’t been able to piece it all together but someone at school was definitely working with them or was were payed off at the very least. The Trafficers told me someone wanted this done to us. Mrs. Mitsukoshi, I’m worried about Yuu still going there. The cops did nothing. I think they got payed off. I have a very powerful person helping me but we can only get to the bottom of this if no one expects us looking into them.

>*Hug Mom and brake down worse* If...If that person finds out...they had so much done to meithurtsobad. I couldn’t sleep well my body hurt so badtheothergirlswoudn’tstopscreaming. HELP! I can’t let it happen again. Please help me MOMMY!

>*regain composure* I’m sorry, that happens sometimes. Mrs. Mitsukoshi, would you mind if my mother and I had some privacy. Take your mom to her new room and talk to her in private.

I think we would break the masquerade and tell our mom exactly what happened but not Yuu’s mom yet.

>If the moms push for more details about the timeline.
>Junko was Kidnapped about three months ago now. (time she got eaten by the shadow.)
>About two months of indescribable torture.
>The kidnappers beat and stabbed Junko nearly to death and dumped her the slums. She was still alive. She squatted in decaying buildings and stole food to survive. (time she woke up)
>Junko came home when she felt better and left the letter.
>Junko meet Okada while she was squatting on his yacht and He took pity on her and took her in.
>Mari gets kidnapped and gets away in the commotion of the attack. She describes being told that someone also payed for her to be attacked. The police do nothing and most of the traffickers are dead. Okada begins investigating with Junko.
>Junko approached her mom because she fears how powerful this mystery person maybe.

If the moms are sharp they might work out that Okada helped out with the house.

It has too many plot holes for my liking.
>>
>>3306894
>>3306864

The problem with the card is that we we missing for two months already when we sent it. What was junko doing for two months? I think her best excuse for that time is a kidnapping.

What plot holes did I miss? I could rewrite it.

>>3306917
I want to at least tell Junko’s mom most of the truth. I just don’t think we could tell Mrs. Mitsukoshi and get her to believe us. She would probably think we are a monster and want us away from her daughter.

We've been doing a nonstop tangle of lies. Just come out with the truth. or at least a portion of it even if we keep it vague.

Japan has a rich folklore then we can do something like
>Write-in
>Mother, there are many unspeakable things, much more some are superstition. I won't make this long. I was spirited away. The Junko you see is just a shadow of her former self. The true Junko is already dead. Yet her spirit didn't want to pass on. That is why her body is here right now. She only has a borrowed time and I don't know when I will be gone. Mother, I'm sorry but despite what I said, I really do want to be with you. But with great wish come with great price.

>Show a power like flicking your fingers like a lighter. Then shapeshift into different person.

>I have obtained these powers and I have a mission. A mission I won't tell you because it is very dangerous. Don't even bother calling the police. Because the enemy I will fight is a supernatural. I'm very sorry mother.

At worse, Yuu's mother will call us a demon and at best. They will cry. Hard. And also do not bring Yuu in this or Yuu's mother will do something bad.
>>
>>3307126
I don't think we need to go full chunni. The real problem is trying to find a way to break it to her that we already died and maybe explain that if she went public with this magical girls would probably just kill her.
>>
>>3307132
Probably the best way is not to be vague and spell out most of the truth. Tell them about Sachiko’s plan and how we fell victim to it. Tell them that Yuu and Kanna are also in danger. The fact that we are dealing with magic means that the police are useless and we can’t just go back to school because our killer is in class with us.
>>
>>3307185
I suppose you're right on that front. Parents don't like vague. But if they know they're in danger they'll want to get involved. I also think it would be more amusing if Yuu's mom tries to hide that she knows magical girls exist without realizing that Yuu is one.

So:
Magic and monsters exist
We died
We came back
Didn't come back right
The monster in our head says she was murdered by the same person
People that fight monsters would just kill us if they saw us and going public would just mean a superpowered serial killer knows who/where to target.
>>
>>3307203
>>3307126

>And also do not bring Yuu in this or Yuu's mother will do something bad

>...would be more amusing if Yuu's mom tries to hide that she knows magical girls exist without realizing that Yuu is one

I don't know how we tell the ladies the truth without telling Mrs. Mitsukoshi her daughter is tangled up in this too. Yuu plays a pretty central part to all of this with her having half of Sakura's powers and being Sachiko's next target. Those are both vital pieces of the story leaving them out would make the truth vague. Then we have Yuu and her mom running around investigating stuff so they have a huge target on their heads.
>>
I ssy that we keep lieing to them until we kill sashiko and then we tell them the truth(or at least the less horrifying parts)
>>
It actually wouldn't be that out there to claim we were spirited away since we can demonstrate magic, but i'm in the don't lie to mommy faction.
>>
>>3307545
but we need to lie to them right now, otherwise they will call the police, sashiko might go into hiding and we won't be able to kill her.
>>
>>3307588
Call the police on people with superpowers so that we can also get killed a second time shortly after? We have a sufficient deterrent for that problem at least.
>>
>>3307591
>Call the police on people with superpowers so that we can also get killed a second time shortly after
that's exactly the reason i don't want to tell the truth to our mom right now.
>>
>>3307588
>Sashiko might go into hiding and we won't be able to kill her.

That's the least of our problems. For some reason anons seem to forget that Sachiko has mental powers. She can make people forget things. She can just jedi mind trick the police and now know that someone is after her.
>>
>>3307649
And then we just point out that they can erase everone’s memoy of it like thy did to yuu.
>>
I would write out telling the truth like this, if someone can come up with something better that leaves yuu and her mom out of it, My other idea is >>3306869

>Mom, Mrs. Mitsukoshi, Please sit down for this. I also need both of you to promise you won't do anything rash. I wanted Yuu to be here with me when I explained all of this but goddamn is your daughter stubborn. Three years ago, Your daughter and I became magical girls.

>Change into magical girl form. Summon a shield.

> You can see my sword is both heavy and sharp. The shields float with magic. I could show you some fire magic but that might be ill advised indoors. Magical girls are formed when a female touches a hope essence--concentrated hope energy. We fight shadows--corrupted beings formed from the energy of negative emotions. Anyway, we made friends with other girls: Sachiko Yumegawa, Rei Fukuda, Mari Okada, and later Kanna Rikudo. We formed a team, went on adventures, and everything seemed great, until eleven weeks ago.

>We went on a routine hunt at the wharf, but it went badly. There were many more shadows than we were expecting and one of them was exceptionally tough. The other girls decided to retreat. They left me behind and dragged Yuu off kicking and screaming. My friends abandoned me to die--and I did just that--die. I fell body and soul into a void of pure corruptive energy. I was down there suffering for about two months.

>When I woke up I was really angry. I had all right to be. I found out that I had become a shadow myself, but I was different than any I had encountered before. I wasn't some mindless beast. I was still me.

>Prick your finger with your sword.

>My blood is pure corruption. Negative energy is the only thing keeping me alive. I tried to use hope to go back to normal but all I did was hurt myself. I couldn't go back to my friends like this. They would have just killed me before I could explain myself. I couldn't go to the authorities. What would I tell them, two months ago my friends fed me to a monster. I couldn't go back home. I wasn't totally in control of my emotions yet and I know mom would send me back to school and certain death right away or to an asylum.

>So I did the only thing I could think of doing. Investigate what happened and try to get some sort of justice on my own. So I started digging and the more I found out and the more I didn't like it. It turns out that shadows formed by magical girls always drop hope essences, which are otherwise very rare. It is also very easy to push a magical girl into corrupting herself into a shadow. If a magical girl wanted to become very powerful. She could seek out shadows formed by magical girls and kill them to harvest hope essences or TURN magical girls into shadows and kill them for hope essences. Yuu's and my power came from another girl, Sakura Yamagata. I managed to meet her "ghost" and I could let her tell you the same thing she told me. One of my "friends", Sachiko Yumegawa, had murdered her and other teammates, Yuuki Hasegawa and Rika Tachibana, to try get their powers. Why she did this is unclear. There was one complication. Sachiko didn't get Sakura's powers. Yuu and I found her essence and got them first. Mom I was Sachiko's fourth victim.

>We can't just call the police. How can we explain magic to them? Furthermore Sachiko is extremely powerful and clever. She is very strong and has a type of mental power that allows her to block parts of people's memories. She has used that power multiple times on Yuu. I don't know any other magical girls besides the ones I'm already working with. If there are others, they might kill me on first sight or they could just be like Sachiko? Our only option is to kill Sachiko before she can take anymore people's daughters. I have been working with Yoshinobu Okada, his niece got caught up in all of this, he helped me secure this house and hide you here. Mrs. Mitsukoshi, I care deeply about your daughter. She almost became a shadow last night. I saved her before that happened

>Ladies, I need you to stay safe. I have screwed up Sachiko's plans--she hasn't gotten her powers and four of us girls are running around as lose ends and she is utterly ruthless. It wouldn't surprise me if Sachiko tried to hurt either of you to draw out us girls.
>>
>>3307838
Its a nice effort and all but I feel like it's too wordy for us when we got caught flat footed and tired from dealing with that shadow instead of being able to think things through which is why I've been keeping my own suggestions brief or as responses to possible questions.
>>
>>3308162
it also sounds way more mature than what junko's mental age is. You simply don't see teenagers saying that.

>>
>>3308291
I concur with disagreeing with the changeling thing. It's cruel to Junko's mom. If we are already demonstrating magic is real, why would we at least not tell the moms some sliver of the truth?

>>3308162
Wordy is fair. How would you find a shorter way to convey the truth and most of what has happened in the story to them? I was thinking that by giving the moms more specific information it would look more truthful, as who comes up with all of those names and places on the spot. Making the story more vague will just make the moms doubt it more.
>>
>>3306815
Might as well revise whatever my old vote was.
These are mostly bullet points that anons can pick and choose or even expressly veto.

>Magic and monsters exist (aka show off magical girl powers in an overt manner that can be seen since they're sometimes invisible to people) Walking on shields?
>I'm sorry mom, I died. ( In response to where we were all this time. Lots of tears. Maybe reveal the shadow thing somehow. Normal people can't actually perceive them, right? Does she even remember the shadow that was stuck to her somehow? She acts like she doesn't despite us not removing those memories.)
>I came back
>I Didn't come back right
>The monster in our head says she was murdered by the same person. Her name is Sakura by the way. She used to be a Miko.
>There's no point in calling the police. We used to erase people's memory all the time.(And what do we even know about MG as an organization? is that a hole in our memory?) All that would do is tell a superpowered serial killer where you are and that she should finish you off.

Doh. Forgot the line about how they can erase their memories just like they rewrote Yuu's.
>>
>>3308378
>>I'm sorry mom, I died.

This will kill our mom or make her think we are a demon or some shit like that.
>>
>>3308393
Japanese generally aren't religious and aren't as... antagonistic to the supernatural as christian cultures which is presumably why they get stupid ideas in their head about demons being friendly.
As far as I know we aren't from that sort of household.
We also need to clearly impress on them the danger to us if regular magical girls at large find out about us. Otherwise they would just try to find a way to call Sachiko's manager.
>>
>>3308419
manager?
>>
>>3308426
If magical girls have an organization (which Sakura probably[?] knows more about it even existing than us), then Sachiko basically has higher ups we can tattle tale on at the cost of our life when they go scorched Earth upon the town. So it is indeed possible to go find her metaphorical manager.
>>
>>3308419
>Japanese generally aren't religious and aren't as... antagonistic to the supernatural
regardless you are telling her that we died. That is the worst thing that you can tell a mother even if we returned from the dead.
>>
>>3308393
We already mentioned we died to our mom back at our old house and she didn't freak out that bad but she didn't understand what we were trying to tell her either.

>>3308447
All indications point to that The Organization may function like that but Junko doesn't know about them or any other magical girl groups.

>>3308462
>We already mentioned we died to our mom back at our old house
I'm pretty sure we didn't. She just tought of all of the situation as a bad dream.

At this point we could not bring it up and let her remember what we said or be evasive and say we were hurt really badly. The problem is broaching into us being part shadow now which is why we can't get help and they can't get help.

what if we tell them we came back with powers instead of saying that we came back wrong or stuff like that? way simpler than trying to traumatize our mom with what we are right now.

It would still have to loop back into shadows to explain why there's no higher authority they can report this to and they would put 2+2 together. Something about our "condition" "has" to be revealed and we didn't think about what excuse to tell our mom when we had the chance/time.

well, yes, but we can sugarcoat the truth instead of telling them what really happened or what our powers really are.

"I think let's go find a seat because this will be a long one."

"Oh, then I'll ready the tea then, please don't start without me." Mrs. Mituskoshi offers.

A few minutes later, all of you are settled. Your mother pour each of your cups while Yuu's mother is already munching a big bowl of biscuits in the middle. They both stare at you waiting for you to start. Although searching for a word to where to start, but for some reason you blurt a word that you never expect to say at all.

"I eloped with someone."

Both mothers spit their teas and shouted.

"WHAT!!!"

"No no please I'm joking."
>WHAT THE HELL SAKURA!!

>"Well you had a hard time saying it so I gave you a push."

"Young woman, I need an explanation about this. You are so young and you need to...."

"PLEASE LISTEN TO ME I DIDN'T ELOPE WITH SOMEONE."

It took a lot of time to calm down the two of them until you start looking serious.

"Before I start, I also need both of you to promise you won't do anything rash. I wanted Yuu to be here with me when I explained all of this but goddamn is your daughter stubborn. Three years ago, Your daughter and I became magical girls."

"Stop it Junko, you are being ridicu---"

You start to transform, in front of them. They were wide-eyed from the sequence of your transformation.

"Wait Kurosaki-san, did you hear a dead girl wailing like in that movie Sadako?"

"I didn't hear anything, more like did you hear something like balloon popping?"

"We must be hearing different things then."

After your transformation, a costume of jet black battle dress. An off shoulder outfit with a revealing cut in the middle of your breast tied with stings emphasizes your cleavage and your moderate breast. Down below, a tight fitting that hugs your hips and waist and a short skirt that cuts in the middle of your thigh. They gawk at you at lost of words on whatever they going to say. Yet Mrs. Mitsukoshi is the first one to speak.

"Say Kurosaki-san, did you cosplay that thing one time except it was brightly colored?"

"Please don't remind me of my hobbies back then."

Then you summon your sword and you jam it in on the tiled floor. Both of them startled are they thought it was fake all along. Then you summon your shield. All five of them and floating around you.

"You can see my sword is both heavy and sharp. The shields float with magic. I could show you some fire magic but that might be ill advised indoors. Magical girls are formed when a female touches a hope essence--concentrated hope energy. We fight shadows--corrupted beings formed from the energy of negative emotions. Anyway, we made friends with other girls: Sachiko Yumegawa, Rei Fukuda, Mari Okada, and later Kanna Rikudo. We formed a team, went on adventures, and everything seemed great, until eleven weeks ago.

Then you bring your finger and made a small cut. Black blood oozes from the wound and sizzles as it touches the ground like it was some kind of acidic liquid.

"My blood is pure corruption. Negative energy is the only thing keeping me alive. I tried to use hope to go back to normal but all I did was hurt myself. I couldn't go back to my friends like this.

If a magical girl wanted to become very powerful. She could seek out shadows formed by magical girls and kill them to harvest hope essences or TURN magical girls into shadows and kill them for hope essences. Yuu's and my power came from another girl, Sakura Yamagata. I managed to meet her "ghost" and I could let her tell you the same thing she told me. One of my "friends", Sachiko Yumegawa, had murdered her and other teammates, Yuuki Hasegawa and Rika Tachibana, to try get their powers. Why she did this is unclear. There was one complication. Sachiko didn't get Sakura's powers. Yuu and I found her essence and got them first. Mom I was Sachiko's fourth victim. We can't just call the police. How can we explain magic to them? Furthermore Sachiko is extremely powerful and clever. She is very strong and has a type of mental power that allows her to block parts of people's memories. She has used that power multiple times on Yuu. I don't know any other magical girls besides the ones I'm already working with. If there are others, they might kill me on first sight or they could just be like Sachiko? Our only option is to kill Sachiko before she can take anymore people's daughters. I have been working with Yoshinobu Okada, his niece got caught up in all of this, he helped me secure this house and hide you here. Mrs. Mitsukoshi.
>>
>>3308665
I care deeply about your daughter. She almost became a shadow last night. I saved her before that happened. Ladies, I need you to stay safe. I have screwed up Sachiko's plans--she hasn't gotten her powers and four of us girls are running around as lose ends and she is utterly ruthless. It wouldn't surprise me if Sachiko tried to hurt either of you to draw out us girls."

Both of them try to cosume the words that was spoken through your mouth. Their faces have varying degrees of conflicted emotions. From amazement to horror. It was not easy to say everything yet it felt that you have unloaded some baggage inside you. Your mother is the first to speak.

"A-are you still alive?"

"I don't know mother."

"Then....Yuu is in danger!"

Mrs. Mitsukoshi frantically dialed the number of her daughter as she panickly breathes from the revelation you have said.

.........................

You are Yuu Mitsukoshi and you are standing in front of the Fukuda yard. The shadowspectres were already killed thanks to Natalya help and the four of you go outside as you give your reports.

"Rei isn't home but the room is heavily laden with corruption that it isn't funny anymore. Whoever did this really did a number of her."

"What Sachiko-san said was true, although I am more tempted to go back there and investigate more to see the source of corruption, I am pretty beat right now."

"Yeah good job everyone senpais!"

Then your phone rings, you showed it to everyone that your mother is calling. You pick it up.

"Hello mother?"

"YUU COME HOME THIS INSTANT RIGHT NOW!!"

"Huh? What happened mother?"

"JUST DO IT!"

"Alright don't be mad. I'll see you there."

Uhm...sorry girls. Mother was mad for some reason. I have to go ahead right now."

"Uhh Yuu?"

"Yes Sachiko-san?"

"I know that it may be rough with your family right now but call us if anything is wrong, alright?"

"Thanks for the kind words. Anyway I'll excuse myself."

You run to the nearest bus station where your new house going to lead.

"Sound like Yuu's mother is mad."

"Yeah I can hear it over her phone."

"Now girls, it's very bad to pry onto peoples privacy. Shall we go home now?"

.............................................

Your mother is sobbing through a pillow in the sofa while Mrs. Mitsukoshi is pacing on the room back to back. Truth hurts but it must be done.

You sit beside you mother as she hugs the pillow.

"My child, my child is dead."

You rub her back as her sobs intensified. You hug your mother and cry with her. It was a sad and harsh truth yet the world that you live in is already unfair. With supernatural roaming around this city possibly the country, living in a blissful ignorance can be a preferable option. They Yuu comes in.

"I'm home mother, what is happening?"

"What is this non-sense did both of you with Junko? Running some nights and sneak out in the morning, I even get calls that you we're cutting classes from your teachers? I turned a blind eye on this Yuu but to expose yourself from this great danger? Yuu I didn't raise you to become some random vigilante of justice. What are you going to say young lady?"

Yuu can only stare at her fuming mother and then looks at you.

"Junko what is the meaning of this? And what is happening at Rei's house? We gone to her home and it was teemed with so much corruption and I DON'T KNOW WHAT IS HAPPENING ANYMORE.

Everything is a mess. Yuu's mother is expecting an answer from her daughter, Your mother cannot accept that you were already gone and Yuu already has her gauntlets summoned.

Okay in reality there was some kind of neighbor party and maybe some mother night out. You see they are single mothers (except for Yuu which her father is overseas) and wants to have some fun. There were liquor involved and then you already know the rest when someone is drunk. Especially if your dare them when they lose any inhibitions.

"Let's go outside."

"I refuse, you shouldn't go outside this evening."

"Mrs. Mitsukoshi, we're just going to Okada's mansion. Don't worry, it won't take long. You can see it on the window over there."

Although the house is pretty much beside it. Okada's mansion took an entire block or maybe two of land wide. Yuu's mother glared at both of you but then sighs.

"You have until 8pm and that is final. And when you get back, I expect answers Yuu."

"Yes mom."

"I should have took the offer from your father to move out of this country. Maybe this is the time I should call him."

While mother goes to her room, you urge Yuu to come with you.

"What about your mother."

You look back at your mom burying her face with a pillow, her muffled sniffs and sobs seems to be endless.

"She must accept it. That is why I moved her with you two. To accompany her or she will fall into despair again. Just like you forgot her 3 months later."

Yuu wince at that remark but she goes back to her huffing state.

"Let's go then."

Both of you go to Okada's mansion. You opened the front door urging to come in first. After closing the door behind you, she starts transforming with her gauntlets in hand. The shadows around her immediately surrounds her, eyeing her menacingly.

"Start talking."

"I told them the truth Yuu, about magical girls and what happened to me. That we are all in danger. Please, lets not fight this. I wanted you here when I told them about this but I had no idea if you were even going to come back today."

"Guess what? I was at Rei's house. And when I got there? Her whole house reeks with corruption. Especially in Rei's room. The corruption is so strong that it summoned 5 shadowshades. And what is the best part? Is I have to pretend that I'm oblivious when Rei is already on your side? So what did you do to her? Inject her with corruption?"

"Yes."

"You are evil....EVIL!"

"Yuu, You either die a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain. I'm the same as Sakura, I'm here because of revenge. And I won't stop until I have my revenge."

Yuu rushes onto you running over the small shadows who are helplessly moved out or killed. With her fist coming onto your face you....

she's not gonna buy this because she'll just assume we are trying to manipulate her, which we are.

She comes closer and closer and you decide to stand. To take the hit, but that didn't happend. A black transparent shield materialize in front of you and Yuu punches it. But it didn't break and instead bounced her out of you. Raye comes out staff at ready. Marie came in and punched her in the face.

"Don't you dare punch the queen you peasant." Raye comments.

"Sorry Yuu, as much as I want to hold it out, I can't let you hurt Junko."

Yuu stands up spitting her bloody lip. She starts buffing herself and the two of them ready their battle stance.

"Stop!"

Both of them relaxed but Yuu is still alert.

"Yuu, they left me to die, then erased their memories, found out my mother was with some shadowbane who pretends to be me and now Sachiko cowardice to feed me to futher her own agenda? If I'm evil then what is she?"

"A fucking bitch, and both of your are just the same. You feed evil with evil and it only propagate more evil. Both of your are so sick I can't even stomach how disgusting your way of your revenge."

Marie steps in, you stop her but she just waved you off.

"You stuck up bitch, just because you are Junko's friend doesn't mean you have to be a princess all the time. Yeah I know, I did it, I suggested it and I already paid for it. And now, this is one of these times I will do my job. That I will never do that thing again. What about you? Are you still waiting to get you something? If anything I learned from your friendship, is that you only benefit yourself. You just treat her like a dog that you want to fetch something for you to enjoy at. You are not a friend, your just like Sachiko."

"I don't have any memories to give you a proper judgement but there is only one thing I know. And that is to protect my queen. Now and forever, even if my body perish. As long as she lives, I will dedicate her my life."

"I don't want to fight you, please stop this."

Yuu stands her hands hang loosely on her sides as her heavy gauntlets sways her arms.

"Junko....."

"Yes."

"I'm sorry, but this is for your own good."

"?????"

MASS PURIFY

>Mass Purify - A big purifier of hope that purifies an area with heavy concentrated shadow. Any weaker shadow are killed while the stronger ones will be severely weakened.

The idea is that we will be able to tank the blast because we aren't a full shadow and if she is far enough from Okada's house the blast itself won't be as powerful and won't kill either of us.

>>3316423
We'll definitely need those hope barriers up and running if we are to have a chance at negating yuu's blast, or at least to confuse it and think that there are less shadows than there really are.

I at least figured out a cheesey one liner since now that anon mentions it, she has been fairly suicidal.

I don't think they can get away since we are already inside of okada's mansion. But maybe they can help us by pushing us out?
We could do something more or less similar to second ~20(and basically what the villain uses to propel himself) and then order the shadow "wave" to retreat in order to avoid a massive Light outburst.

definitely. Without them we might be forced to corrupt the hope core and use it on ourselves.

The effects were immediate. The burning sensation was immediately felt. Much worse than these two who are screaming their hearts out. The shadows quickly melted and lost in the light. The shrieks of many shadows are shouting in sync. The shrill ear piercing cry of every fiber of body is driving your instinct to get away. But you can bear it.

"Girls, get Okada out of here and as much shadow as you can."

"But we will be painted a big target if we do it. Okada cannot contain his corruptive energy when outside!"

"JUST DO IT!"

They moved out immediately and you turn to Yuu.

"Why are you so stubborn Yuu."

You rushed even though the light intensified onto you. But this is for the greater good. With great force you light your fist with corruptive energy. And punched her in the stomach. The spell was interrupted and she's out of air immediately and kneel clutching her stomach.

"I'm tired of saving you everytime Yuu. Why do you really want to die that badly?"

"............"

Yuu is silent. As she sobs from your powerful punch and then throws up, possibly her lunch. Then Marie, Raye and Okada come down from the stairs.

"Junko, thank god you're okay."

"My queen!"

"Ah, good thing I didn't have to go out.

The four of you surrounds her standing menacingly with you in front of her.

"Yuu Mitsukoshi, you stand in-front of us, shadows who only wanted freedom from the tyranny that hunts magical girl who corrupts them and then killing it herself to empower herself for her own. For what action, I don't know."

"My queen, I'm just your plus one. I'm not a magical girl."

"Maybe you should start learning shapeshifting. It's fun being a girl you know."

"My niece, that is not how it works."

>"Guys, be serious." as you mentally call them.

Both of them stop.

>>3316976
>Take her back to her mom and get them a private plane (A real one. Not a fake plane crash one) out of town at a resort.
Yuu's clearly gonna spill the beans but if she does it, we want her out of range of Sachiko trying to murder everything in sight to cover up what she's been doing if what we were doing just now didn't send a giant bat signal. She can't fly so that should keep her out of our hair for at least as long as it takes to either sprint at max MG speed or try to stowaway on or hijack an airplane.Assuming the MG organization doesn't own their own.

That's why I was leaving it vague.

>>3317021
The Mansion hopefully blocked out too much of Yuu's energy. Plus we interrupted her before she went out Kyoko Sakura style.
>>
>>3317021
everything happened inside the mansion, so i don't think that anyone else managed to see it or detected, considering that the mansion is in the rich side of the town and none of the MGs have business being there. Either way it would be nice to check up with sakura to see if the seals(?) she used absorbed the burst or if the shadows in their death managed to do that.

And you are right, Yuu and her mom definitely need at least a trip to the beach or something like that so that they can fix their issues and we can get rid of sashiko.

>Sakura to use the power to cloak everyone while we go to a new safehouse. The mansion isn't safe anymore. Possibly even the town.

I agree we should figure out if we could use the blessing on other places. Maybe a charm for Okada It's probably part of Yuu's half of the powers I think we might want to bless the yacht and get it ready to go out to sea. I doubt Sachiko has access to boats or helicopters to get out into ocean waters, but we do.
>>
>writing
>>
>>3317051
>Yuu going Supernova wasn't protected
well, technically you are right, but, Okada's mansion is full of corruption, we don't know if the seal only hides shadow energy or any other kind of energy for that matter and the blast lasted seconds at best.
I'm not disregarding that the mansion is not safe, but we need to first see if we are compromised before moving everything and everyone, because if we do that, we'd need to bullshit another excuse to move houses and given how Yuu is right now, i don't think that she will want to be that close to us.
>>
>>3317060
It's pretty easy to test since we can use whatever the equivalent of passive sonar is to try and detect the giant energy blorb inside the mansion while outside the boundary.
>>
>>3317065
and even if that happened, we still have time. The girls didn't detect the massive shadow spike that was Rei's room until they were literally in her house. If for some reason the seals broke, we can try to repair them and even without anybody being none the wiser.
>>
>>3317065
Good idea.

>>3317077
They still didn't figure out it was the books too. They just found the shadowshades spawned by Rei uh...being herself. Granted how much of that is actual incompetence vs Sachiko feigning incompetence to hide her malicious intentions is to be seen.
>>
>>3317083
Given the description of the room, at that point it really doesn't matter the source because its effectively lost in all the sea of nastiness unhygienic clothing and whatever other hazard for living beings might have been developing there. You know, its a miracle that the parents didn't catch any of the corruption.

>>3317083
The girls really got corrupted fast. We can't even make 5 shadowbanes ourselves, yet Rei managed to have enough ambient corruption to spawn them.(They obviously weren't there when she left the room since she wouldn't have hard to leave the room to find ones to freeze and she would have noticed them) I still say that we're either way more powerful when it comes to corruption than we thought or we're accidentally giving them an extra/double dose of whatever they were already getting. A random boy band breaking up or the lead singer getting married should spawn the damn things from magical girls at the rate they're going.
>>
>>3317093
Or they were planet there as a trap, but that's way too weak for a trap?
>>
>>3317093
maybe this worked extra well on them because they were isolated? hate breeds hate in isolated groups and with a person is no different. For example, your boy band group has different ways of venting their emotions, like going on solo tours, bitching about it on social media, etc, and allows them to return to normal, but Rei and Mari didn't have that kind of outlet, which led them into being a pervert and a paranoid, respectively.

>>3317055

You stand there. The other 3 stare at her, She now sits herself still nursing the bruise on her stomach.

"You're asking me? What I'm going to do with you?"

"........"

"You're insufferable you know."

You kneel in front of her and hug. She sits there not expecting to do something like this.

"You are my friend and were in your right to confront me about Raye and Marie, and i don't want that you mom ends up having the same fate as mine did. Either way, they are gonna kill us and ground us for a month or more when we return. Yuu, I care too much about you. I always want to be your best friend. I lied because I didn't want to hurt you or fight. You are too important to me."

You whisper in her ears and say...

"I love you, Yuu."

At this point Yuu who snaps from her shocking state, her mouth open and closes like a fish. Then her face heats up. You swear you can see a steam out from her ears. Then she fell unconscious.

"Wow, even words can knock down a Magical Girl full of hopes and dreams."

"I wonder what kind of words did my queen inflicted to her best friend."

"Can I go back on my office now? I still have a deal to make."

You have an unconscious best friend, a mogul businessman, a yuri connoisseur and a yaoi fan with you, a proclaimed queen (according to Okada, Marie and Raye.) What if the 5 of you go inside a bar?

........................
>*somewhere around that night*

You are in front of a dilapidated building in the outskirts of the town. That sneaky shadow managed to stay still on one building. You go inside even though the building is dark to see, but you move in the building with ease. You climbed up to second and third, go to a right and then left where in front of you is a big door which is slightly ajar. Walking again you approach the door ever cautiously until you are in front of it. Then with determination, you go inside. Inside the room is a big conference room but no tables, chairs in different cases of disrepair and a girl on the other end of the room her back turned at you. Then she slowly faces you, her whole body covered in corruptive energy and a slowly freezing room.

"Nice to meet you again........Arc-senpai.

That's it for today. We will resume tomorrow.

We're gonna break her heart so fucking hard when she discovers that we mean it in a non romantic way.
"I love you as a friend yuu. Wasn't it obvious?"

>>3317117
Thanks for the run tonight. Hopefully you are feeling better.

>>3317129
but anon If it isn't platonic or maybe I'm getting my hopes up. I think Junko will figure out not to break Yuu's heart even if it's just in an evil queen manipulative sense.
>>
>>3317140
Thanks. The headache I have two days ago has passed and I just need to take it easy. Means that I would take an hour or two to update so I won't strain my eyes from staring too much on the monitor. That's why everytime I finish my update, I would stand up and go out of my room to relax my eyes again. I also need to go to optometrist and maybe he can give me some pills or glasses to counteract the pain in my head. But that is just me blogging.

>I think Junko will figure out not to break Yuu's heart even if it's just in an evil queen manipulative sense.

If the talk with the mothers taught me something, is that we are as subtle as a sledgehammer, have the touch of an angry bull in a china shop, and will end up breaking her heart at the worst moment.

>>3317155
Have you tried to put 4chan in dark mode in the mean time? that makes wonders for my eyes; also there is an app called dark reader that converts all other pages into dark mode even if they don't have such option.
>>
>>3317129
Yuu obviously wasn't hoping for anything like that and is melting down because she's mistaking Junko's love for not being platonic.
>>
>>3317509
i can already imagine the situation with our moms.
>We arrive with an unconscious Yuu
>The moms worriedly ask what happened.
>"We had a heated argument but we fixed it and i told her i love her."
>"WHAT?!?"
>"That i love her. You know, like how friends are supposed to love each other."
>Cue to both moms also falling unconscious
>>
>>3317542
I can only imagine what Mrs. Mitsukoshi would think if we brought back her daughter with a busted lip, a large bruise on her stomach, and possibly unconscious. Then told her we love Yuu. We told the moms that we are basically an undead monster, so accidentally coming out shouldn't be that much harder lol.

We should bring Yuu to our room and at least try to render some first aid and keep her comfortable. Junko hit Yuu pretty hard, so figure out if Yuu has any broken or bruised ribs. That would necessitate magical healing or doctors. Otherwise everything else is superficial. Some makeshift ice packs. (freezer bags with ice cubes rapped in a hand towel) and acetaminophen should take the swelling out of those bruises/cut lip. I would imagine Yuu might want some mouthwash and a drink of water to get the bile out of her mouth.

We might want to tell Mrs. Mitsukoshi about what happened (maybe leave out the shadow stuff) and how Yuu has been feeling since we died. This is the third time Yuu has strait up tried to kill herself and the last thing a suicidal girl needs is an angry, judgmental, and overbearing mother. Stress to Mrs. Mitsukoshi how close she has come to wind up like our mom, except her daughter might not just come back. Plus, Junko needs to talk to her mom more before Mrs. Kurosaki falls further into despair and corruption again.
>>
>>3317542
I figured saying we had our first fight takes precedence. It's a mundane I love you to Junko instead of an earth shattering confession so the fight thing should take priority in her mind.
>>
>>3317624
do we really need to tell them we fought? but i suppose you are right, we have no real way of hiding the busted lip. Let's just try to downplay the fight instead of how we told the truths to the moms

>>3317610
>I can only imagine what Mrs. Mitsukoshi would think if we brought back her daughter with a busted lip, a large bruise on her stomach, and possibly unconscious.
She's not gonna see the bruise in the stomach, but for everything else we can tell her that we had a "disagreement" because we revealed the secret of the magical girls and then she fell unconscious because we told Yuu that we loved her.
>Junko hit Yuu pretty hard, so figure out if Yuu has any broken or bruised ribs.
Magical girls usually regenerate rather quickly and she wasn't kneeling over in pain or puking blood, so i doubt anything important broke otherwise we would have pretty much known instantly.
>We might want to tell Mrs. Mitsukoshi about what happened (maybe leave out the shadow stuff) and how Yuu has been feeling since we died.
Yeah, i agree. More than an overbearing mother, Yuu needs profesional help and we can't really help with that.
>>
>>3317643
I think we don’t tell her about Raye or what we were disagreeing about but rather that the mass purify spell would have killed Yuu or us, or one of the other girls; possibly everyone in the mansion and we had to stop her before she cast it. Thus, Yuu got a bit roughed up.
>>
>>3317889
no. that only brings more questions, like why did she have to use that spell and why would it have killed her. Its better to make them think that we just hit each other than to realized that Yuu was about to destroy(?) the mansion.
>>
>>3317992
Well we did tell them that we became a shadow and magical girls fight shadows. We did sort of obliquely mention we wanted revenge to the moms.
>>
>>3318010
yeah, but they don't need to know that yuu tried to kill us because we erased Rei's personality and corrupted marie. Hell, no one needs to know that other than Yuu.
>>
>>3318264
I agree. That’s what I think we should keep secret.
>>
gonna run 30 minutes

>>3317117

You put Yuu in your bed for a meantime. You don't really want to see her mother very angry about her daughter have a bruised cheek. You slowly dab the bruised area with ice. Good thing the bruise only made her cheek red. But her face was red earlier. Maybe it was because her bruised cheek that it was spread all over her face? Sometime later, she stir away and try to sit.

"Ow fuck.....damn it Junko, you punch very hard."

"Of course, you're gonna kill us all."

"Well.....sorry. I just remember what you said on the mountains."

"Yuu, I don't know what you are thinking right now but please, stop being so stubborn and listen to us. This is not meant for us but for your own good."

".............."

"Before I forgot, can you scan the area if any girls are coming from your.....stunt?"

"Help me sit."

You go on her back and slowly raise her enough to sit and lean on the pillows. She then closes her eyes and a distinct sound is heard in your ears.

Sweet! Junko, we will know if someone has a scan ability and someone or somehow found us

>"Really?"

>SKILL GAINED: INTERCEPTOR (PASSIVE) : If someone uses the skill scan, Junko will know that someone is scanning the area. Although she wouldn't know where the caster scanned, but she will know how far or near the caster are.

"Junko?"

"Yes?"

"Are you sure you are Junko?"

"Why?"

"When I scanned the area, there was nothing. I thought it would be 5 including me but I only count 4."

"4? What do you mean?"

"That milionaire man, Mari, Rei and me. I can't find you in any of my scan Junko."

That is probably because of me. But hey at least it is one I won't worry about.

>SKILL GAINED: COLD BLOODED (PASSIVE) : Undetectable by MG scan/radar/track

"Junko, help me come home. Mother will be mad again, also we are past an hour now."

You help Junko up the bed and she walk limply beside you like a newborn baby. Marie comes out of her room and saw you two. She smirks and gives you a finger guns and go opposite in your way. What does she mean by that? You slowly walk back until you arrive at her home where Mrs. Mitsukoshi is already at the door tapping her feet. She glared at you two while Yuu sweats....a lot.

"Come to the living room."

You help Yuu again until you settle her down on a sofa. Mrs. Mitsukoshi saw how weird Yuu walks and you sit beside herself.

"Now first of all mind explaining her condition on why she is like that?"

"We had a fight. Being a magical girl was a big secret and well, we also got rid of the pent up feelings we had."

She eyes you menacingly and he watches her daughter hanging her face down twiddling with her thumbs.

"Yuu, go to your room. Now."

Yuu tries to stand up by pushing herself out of the sofa and support herself whatever she can hold on.

"So, what are your plans."

"I will intend to do it until the end."

"Then don't involve my daughter."

"I can't control your daughter Mrs. Mitsukoshi and I don't intend to use your daughter in anything I will do. Did you know that she is so stubborn I have to save her from her troubles. In fact, I want you to chastise her more. For her sake and me too. Although I am confident that she can fight for herself but her recklessness would not do any good for you and for me."


She sighs and rubs her head.

"Alright, I'll talk to her."

"I'll stay then, for now."

Yuu's mother nods and go to her room. Going inside your mother's room. She is already asleep, her breathing are relaxed. You see some trails of her tears and her pillows with dried stains on it. You just sit beside her patting her head and putting her hair at the back of her ears. She is soft to touch as yo caress her cheeks to clean the tears she shed. She smiled slightly. But you are frowning. How much are you going to hurt your feelings of your mother? Does she deserve to be alone again? Although you already know the answer, yet you will not rest until this is all finish.

"Just wait mother, I will come home. And I will never forget what your said.to me. That even though I'm gone, I'm still inside your heart. Just like father."

As you stand up, you didn't notice but she already hug your arm. Still in sleep she murmurs.

"Don't go...."

You decide to sleep with her, hugging her and she hug you back.

Before you do that, don't. Even if you siphon the despair she is feeling, it will grow back again. At least give her some space and time. The wounds of feeling will heal, sometimes it leaves a scar. But people will be stronger if they overcome it. She already has company. As long as she isn't alone again. She will find ways how to ease the pain. Hope you listen to my advice Junko.

I'm nearby and you know my number, so if you feel sad or lonely and the Mitsukoshis can't help just call or visit me. I'm always inside your heart. PS keep an eye on Mrs. Mitsukoshi I don't know if she understands how badly hurt Yuu was by what happened or how close she was to losing her daughter too. I hope to see or hear from you soon, Junko

You decide to hug her for now easing the the pain of your mother. She suffered enought tonight. Hopefully she will come out stronger tomorrow. For you and for her.

...................

Morning comes, you woke up in your mothers room. But your mother isn't there. Going outside, Yuu is sitting on the table phone on hand. When Yuu saw you, she froze, then avoids looking at you. You just ignore Yuu actions and you pick some bread and toast it. Sitting on the opposite side, you eat your toast while she text something on her phone.

"Good morning Yuu."

"mornin'"

Well that is new, the energetic Yuu is like this in the morning? Impossible, something must have....oh yeah. You punch her stomach really hard.

"Is your stomach still ache?"

"Huh? Oh! Well, not really. I'm fine."

"Good, so what are you going to do now?"

"Nothing, cause I'm being grounded."

I see....well, I'm gonna go out. Many things to do.

Yuu nods and just sit silently. You go out the house in a cloudy morning. Rain must be not too far.

hmmm i have a question. why do sentient shadows like marie and rei (but not sakura for some reason) regards us as queen, but not the feral ones?
>>
Yes. the lowest of the shadows attacks you without care as their own. banes, shades and spawn will have a second thought attacking you due to your intimidating presence and power while spectre will not attack because their are smart. But will backstab you when have a chance. Most shadow has their own agenda. Its either killed or be killed or maybe survival of the fittest.

You didn't bring an umbrella and you don't know if shadows get sick. I mean do you get sick? A question to ponder. Going inside again Yuu is still sitting on the table.

"Yuu, if anything is wrong please tell me. I will try to help as best as I can. Are you feeling depressed again? Angry? I may not be the best person, but I still have feelings and I will always try to help you. Please tell me if you ever feel like hurting yourself again. "

She didn't reply.

"How harsh was your Mom last night? I hope she realizes that she should be glad your safe now. Should I talk to her?"

No replies

"Did you see where my Mom went?"

Still silent

"How about ideas about how we could get through to Kanna before anything happens to her? Don’t worry Yuu, I’m not planning anything bad."

".............."

"Yuu, I know it isn’t much but would you like me to cook for you? I could invite the other girls over?"

".............please."

A big grumble on her stomach was heard. It was so loud might as well call it the horns of hunger or the cry of a thousand starving stomachs. You immediately call Raye.

"RAYE EMERGENCY A HUNGRY YUU IS IN NEED OF FOOD QUICK BAKE A MUFFIN."

Seconds later she is already at the kitchen bringing out all the pans, mixers and ingredients and started mixing. After 30 minutes, the muffin is already placed in the oven. Raye calmly puts out the glove and go in one of the rooms with a book in hand.

"What just happened?"

"Well you were hungry."

"Ah....thanks."

The silence is awkward to say. You should have do something. Oh right!

"We gonna chase that shadow with the other girls. There was one rouge one and we thought it's like one of us. Although I don't know if it already moved but we were going to do that."

"I...see. Good luck then."

"You're not coming?"

She shakes her head.

"I'm grounded you know?"

"Ah! I forgot."

Another hour of silence again and the oven dings. Raye comes out of the room and bring out the muffin.

"Enjoy my queen."

She then goes out of the door.

"I can't believe that was Rei. I mean she won't even share her muffins at all. Like her attitude flip 180 degrees."

"......Yeah."

No seriously you don't have nothing to say. So you stand up and leave Yuu to Rei's muffin.

"Uhh Yuu, gonna go out now. So stay safe alright?"

"Hmmmpmmmh."

Well her mouth is full so you take that as a yes. Going outside and into Okada's mansion, you go to where Okada's office right now.

"Okada, is the shadow still there?"

"Yes, are you gonna hunt it?"

"Yeah, see if it's just like us just as you said."

"Goodluck then my queen. Here is the place."

Okada give you the address and a picture of a building. It was a abandoned and dilapidated building in the outskirts of the town. You call Marie and Raye to go on the said place. As always Marie elected to scout while you and Raye are moving throught the said address.

(1/2)
>>
>>3319329
.................

Arriving at the building Marie came back with a report.

"Something is happening inside. Like a battle going on."

"Let's go in then. But be cautious."

All of them nods and proceed to come in. Slowly you check every room then going up in the second building. At the third, an unmistakable sound of combat was heard.

"Up ahead."

You slowly walk through the dim hallway until you see a door slightly ajar. Looking inside is a dark figure with short bobcat hair and a black dress with dual pistol which fires black ice magic. And the other one is the Magical Girl you saved from the forest.

I figure talking it out is the best option atm.
Arc admitted while she was delirious that 3-6 shadows is too much for her at once, so she has a reason to pause.
The shadow presumably doesn't want Arc kicking her ass for as long as possible and to figure out who tf is this evil queen that suddenly showed up. Sakura might recognize her midway through the fight too which would muddle things up.
And then they all go to a cafe for cake so that we can discuss whatever is actually happening.
So with that in mind, we get to find out info from both of them in a tense standoff as Marie gorges herself on cake.

"Girls I wasn’t expecting this. If stuff goes wrong get ready to run."

Both of them nods and watch the two of them duke it out.

.......................

You gripped your spear and train at her. Thanks to the room, the heat of your body is regulated from the icy bullets she fires. You block every single shot she fires and you try to close the gap but she casually teleports away to keep distance with you. Nonetheless, the battle is at stalemate. But you will be the first one to collapse from exhaustion if this keeps up.

Senpai, we can do this all day you know?

Well, I don't mind. Gives me a fight that I would enjoy you know.

Glad I entertained you. *giggles*

Sparks fly as you block bullets one by one. Then suddenly she combined the two pistols and crank the pump.

Say hello to my friends.....senpai

The shotgun explodes as you narrowly dodge the bullet and sail past the door.

....................

Wood splinters fly as the three of you are thrown off. Groaning to yourself you see the two of them staring at you.

The two stare at you and the three of you stare at them. It became a staring contest. Then you break the silence.

"Ex-Exc-Excuse me! Would you two mind explaining what is going on?!"

What?

Raye quickly adds

"We're just here to watch, don't mind us. Just shadows hanging around the corner."

I thought they're your friends?

Of course they are, right? right? RIGHT?

"Uhmm...."

Then the spear girl rushed to the dual pistol wielding girl . She manage to close the gap and smacked her at the back of her head. She flops unconscious and then faced you three.

I must say, I have to thank you for saving me in the forest. I'll probably die out there even though there is a six of you.

Marie and Raye then whisper to themselves.

"Say did she said six?"
"Yeah, I think her head is probably damaged."
"Poor girl, She is my type too."
"Nah he is better when he wears like a male. Imagine him and then that novel that Takahiro was in."
"Sorry Raye. While I appreaciate you taste, it's not my jam."
"Well girls, can't love girls because that is forbidden."
"And that is what it makes it so adorably cute."

I can hear you over here you know. So introductions is in order. Seems like you are a sane one. Not really fought a lot of sane shadows but hey this is my chance. Name is Arc, shall we fight?

>as much as I don't want to fight might as well come up with a strategy if it comes down to fighting

>Arc is worn down so we should try to be evasive and let her come to us. Charging headlong into combat with a sword vs a spear user is ill advised because Arc has more reach. Both Junko and Raye have firestorm so we can cut off her movement paths and force her to tank hits if she wants to be offensive, since we are in a semi-enclosed space. I'm thinking that should play out kind of like the Wesker vs Alexia fight in RE:CV https://youtu.be/zUVzSbGo-DI

>Junko: Try to draw Arc close to her and away from the mystery shadow, but not close enough for Arc to attack easily. Firestorm at her feet and face. Summon some shadowshades to try and by space and time and keep Arc busy.
> Raye: Use her flight to make Arc pay for thinking of the fight two dimensionally or keep Arc from getting the drop on Junko from the air. Use firestorm at first to cut off Arc from the mystery shadow. Support Junko with fire/ice attacks as needed.
>Marie: Her independent action is vital. Try to wake up the mystery shadow. The more the merrier. Focus on that unless she can strait up kill Arc with a well placed attack. The other girls need to buy her time.

>Everyone should stay evasive. Arc is powerful but she can only keep running for so long if we don't let her easily get hits in keep chasing three/four different girls. Once she wears down start pummeling her with projectiles from different directions. Junko should try to keep her stuck in medium range combat with her and keep Arc away from the projectile throwers unless she wants a sword to the back.

"Why? I was just trying to figure out who or what that shadow was. Maybe eat it’s essence if it’s a bad one. Or are you working for that crazy bitch--"

"Ahhhh fuck so fucking noisy."

She rushes you with her spear and the three of you get to your battle stance. You mentally call Marie and told her your plan.

>"Marie, try to wake up the shadow. Me and Raye will try to bait her away from her. After you wake her up or not. Try to get a vantage point where you can hit her, alright?"

>"Got it Junko."

"Raye, back me up."

"As you wish."

"Hoho~ that is amusing. As you wish? Are you some kind of a matron shadow or something?"

"You two girls seemed to know each other. You know the shadow you knocked out is sentient, right. You can probably talk with her. Sometimes when we first come to, we can act rash but with time and hope energy she will regain her old self. I managed to save my friend last night... she's still a magical girl but I think she's mad at me; I kinda got her grounded."

"And? Where do I come in? Or did you already killed 1 of them?"

"This conversation is getting nowhere. Fine, if you really want to do this, I won't show mercy this time."

Arc kicks the unconscious shadow out of the corner and cast something. An invisible light barrier can be seen that shining like a shimmering metal sheen.

"Shall we?"

You start summoning your sword and give her a swordbolt. Raye immediately casted Ice blast and Marie peppered her with all the arrows with a mix of exploding arrows. Arc deftly dodges everything that you thrown. Even through you thrown everything in her six direction, she masterfully swat everything even the icy spell Raye thrown. Marie is the first to slow down or she will wear herself down which she start to attack Raye. You block her spear with your sword and Raye immediately goes in another position as she throw another ice blast.

"Girl, your teamwork sucks."

"Well, it's still on the works. But we will get there."

Another fight between you and Arc which she stabs your very very fast. While you are slow with your sword, you compesated with you summoning shields which breaks everytime she stabs you whenever there is a hole in your defense.

"AH FUCK! That fucking burns." Marie nurses her smoky hands as she tries to get that shadow out of there.

"Ahahahahaha~ So that is your plan huh."

>"On it."

Marie moves out of the girl and get's out of the room.

"Pfft. Someone runs away and it's only the two of you. Well that was fun while it was lasted. Time to get serious."

She immediately blink towards you and then suddenly disappeared. Next thing you hear is Raye pained cries as she kicked her in the side throwing her a little bit away across the room. With you near the door, Arc in the center and Raye slowly standing up, making her staff a makeshift cane as she wobbles and wincing from the pain. You cast vanguard and shield for yourself and Rei to maximize the defense for both of you.

"Time for me to get serious too."

You coat your blade with poison and corruption that makes a black lightning aura. You heft it up into your shoulder and take a stance.

>"Sakura, any ideas?"

Nothing. Sakura has been silent for some time so you decided no to bother her. Arc goes again and you clashed with her.

i'm probably misunderstanding it, but raye's shadow firestorm is... basically corruptive fire. since its corruptive fire, it will not damage us at all, or we will be protected by our immunity buff(because being on fire is definitely a status ailment). This will make it harder for arc to hit us and will probably unnerve her, because who in their right mind will set themselves on fire?
we also could use a variation of Marie's shadow rain in the hallway. basically instead of launching it upwards, she would shoot it right towards the end of the hallway, hopefully impaling arc, and if she blinks away, we can get her with our sword once she reappears.
>>
>>3321305
I was gonna explain that why you got -5. It was gonna put it before I ask the roll. But here it is.

You met her spear with your great sword. The two weapons clashes with sparks flying on each other. Although her weapon is just a metal stick, the strength behind it is not a joke. Slowly you were moving backward holding out as best as you can. Then an ice spell hit Arc behind. It just bounced harmlessly behind her.

"Come on, is that the best that you can?"

Then Marie burst at the corner of the room by destroying a wall with her ax.

"Hey, turns out, barrier didn't work on wall concrete areas. OH YEAH!"

"Seriously, I called you an ambulance and you try to kill me? Is every other magical girl left in this town a serial killer?"

"What do you mean? We are just doing our job. Killing shadows. We don't care if they have an independent mind or whatever, you will leave corruption at your wake. I don't know what type you are and I certainly don't want to know. But hell I am going to kill you right now."

>"Say Junko, she sound just like you."

>"Did she? I don't sound like that."

>"I bet when you try to heal her, you corrupted her kind of thinking........maybe."

>"Just get that shadow and get out."

Marie hefts up the unconscious girl on her shoulder. You break off and immediately casted on her.

*BINDING SLASH*

You slashed Arc out but she blocked it. Yet her feet glowed with black tendrils binding her in place. She looks down and smirks.

"Nice try."

But the tendrils quickly binds her feet and she can only wave her spear as the vine gets sizzeled when trying to crawl up to her hip level.

"Raye let's go out."

Helping Raye by giving her a hand and carry her in your back, you escaped the building while Arc is still binded.

........................

You are Marie and you escaped from that super strong Magical Girl you fought in that building. Even with you 3 fight and try to take her down. It was still not enough. How much more when you are going to fight Sachiko? But that is the least of your worries right now. You are now currently at some random skyscraper where Junko wants to breathe some fresh air and to tend to Raye injury. While you put down this cute girl beside you. Looking at her, she is very attractive. Short blonde hair, perfect red lips, cute nose, smooth skin. Looking at Junko, she is still healing Raye. Maybe.....you can just sneak one kiss.

*chuuuuu*


After doing the deed, she immediately wakes up and was shocked that your face are too close.

"Marie? What are you doing?"

Both of you look at Junko. Then she immediately shrieks and teleported as far away as possible. Meaning at the edge of the skyscraper.

.....................

"God damn it Marie, what did you do to her?"

"Nothing Nothing. I was....just looking at her cute sleeping face."

She is blushing. That is no good. Something must have happened while you try to heal Raye.

"H-hey calm down. I'm Junko, this is Raye and that one is Marie. Please we are not like that girl and we are just like you."

"M-me?"

"Yeah."

The shadow touched you while she closes her eyes, and this happened for minutes. She furrows her brow and then opens her eyes.

"Sorry, I feel something inside you yet I can't seem to find it inside you. Sorry. You are not the one I'm looking for."

"Huh what do yo-"

She teleported out immediately leaving you three of you dumbfounded on what happened. They Marie speaks...

"Shall we go home for now? I wanna rest since I wasted too much energy on that bitch."

".....Yeah."

You pick up Raye again and go with Marie to the mansion.

.................

"Hello HQ?"

>"Come in Arc."

"Found the shadows but I didn't killed them. Too many. I have to pick them one by one."

>"Need assistance?"

"No, I'll manage. But I'm still finding the instigator."

>"Alright, keep us updated Arc. Stay safe."

"I will....."

You look at the cloudy weather above. Seems the rain will pour anytime now.

"Sorry I have to act asshole to you girls, hope you find something I would find."

You jump down and immediately disappeared at the nearest alleyway.

................

Arriving at the mansion, you help Raye put her on the bed. Her injury may be unnoticeable outside but the inside took too much damage. Hopefully she would recover tomorrow. Going outside her room and into Okada's room, you check on him and there you see him doing the same thing again.

*MEKAMEKA WAVE*

The same small orb of darkness is released on his palm and bounced on his shadowspectre harmlessly, the shadowshade again tilt his head in confusing waiting for-

*BOOM*

Nevermind, something blown up but it only singed the surrounding area. The shadowspectre is covered in black soot. You too have been unfortunately hit as the shadowspecter is just a half meter beside you with your hair stood at he back with your face also covered in black soot.

"Oh! My.....oh."

"Hello Okada, productive afternoon huh."

>Do you have anyone that can check on some names? Sakura gave too many details to probably be lying, but it's good to check up on her story before the next crisis hits us. She says she's the one that made the barrier, so they can backtrack from there if something weird happened with the records.

"So, ready for another magic lesson? Raye can help you, after she recovered that is."

"Ah....well, I'll call her when I have time. You, get me a basin of water and a towel."

The shadowshade nods and disappeared. He then gives the basin and the towel to Okada and wets the towel to clean you.

"Found the teleporting shadow. She is looking for someone and was fighting some magical girl called "Arc". does the name ring any bells?"

"Hm? No, it didn't ring any bells. As much as I boast myself for remembering thousand people from my company and my business partners. I don't recall an "Arc". But it would be best if you describe her features to me."

"Short blonde hair, acts like a male, has a cute face......uhh scratch that make it a soft gentle smile face and uhh.....has a great body?"

"I think you need to do better than that. But I guess I don't recall something like her."

You're already squeaky clean from the soot Okada made and inquire another one.

"Do you have anyone that can check on some names? Sakura gave too many details to probably be lying, but it's good to check up on her story before the next crisis hits us. She says she's the one that made the barrier, so they can backtrack from there if something weird happened with the records."

"Well, I do recall a shrine maiden blesses this mansion. I thought it was some kind of superstition. Turns out, she coated the whole mansion outside with hope energy that suppresses any negativity to be found out outside. Good thing she didn't bless the mansion inside or I would have died. I do remember giving money to a church but that family was massacred and the culprit is still on the loose."

"I see, thanks for the clean-up."

"Don't mention it."

You go outside Okada's office and now thinking what you should do next.

You remember that Yuu is still at home grounded. Hopefully she is still at home. Going outside and into the house quickly so you won't be drench in the rain. After going as fast as your could. You're still drenched in rain. Going inside, you saw Yuu just going out of her room.

"Oh! Mother, welcome home."

"Mother? What do yo-"

"SHHHHHHHH!!!! Sachiko and Natalya is here."

"WHAT?"

You are Yuu and you are bored. With nothing to do, you just keep scrolling on your phone looking for interesting things. But nothing. Nothing really interest you anymore. Even you watching videos about cute things doesn't give you the fluffy feeling. Feels......nothing.

Oh! That must be Junko opening the door you see......

"Yuu! I didn't know you have a large house now."

Just as the description suggest. They will never know if you are just a normal person or a supernatural one. Using shapeshifting would still activate the passive but your voice won't still change. You are speaking the same voice you have right now even if your are shapeshifted to another person.

I thought moving them was supposed to add security. Why weren't we informed Sachiko was around? Even mundane surveillance like a camera should have picked them up so that we can be ready to jump in and try to save Yuu. Somebody at the mansion should be getting fired.

>add security
We hadn't placed any cameras or anything. We were just hiding Yuu and her family where we could watch them. Then, Yuu had to run off to school and blow her own cover.

>smol Junko
It's a good idea but Junko can't impersonate voices other than Mari. The girls would be interested in this new young neighbor or are good enough sociopaths that know a person should at least feign being friendly to a little kid. Junko's voice coming out of a kid would be bizarre. If we have to talk the best idea is to pretend to be our own mother. It would make sense that Junko and her mother would sound alike.

if we become small enough our voice might change, or we can "say" that we are mute by writing it on our phone.

That was before Yuu moved places and even then, we knew that this would ve a temporal solution. The problem is that Sashiko found out the safehouse immediately. Not even a day passed and she already knew, which leads me to think that she has some sort of tracking systen on yuu or she followed her.

This can work but it still seems really strange. Why a weird girl shows up who cant talk but wants to play with Yuu. Sachiko isn't stupid. They will want to follow Yuu around. A better idea is:
>Transform into a foreign brown loli
>I'm lost help me find the bus stop, Miss I can't speak Japanese well I can just read/write a little.

It doesn't guarantee we can get Yuu away from the girls. They will want to follow, but it will get us out of the house. Also Natalya may be a polyglot. We know she knows Japanese and Russian, she may be fluent in English as well.

>>3322609

I know anon. In all honesty it is a life or death situation. If we get out of this we can worry about her feelings later, if you know we don't die.

2.)We don't know Yuu's mom's number. Sachiko will be smart enough to notice that "Mom" came in the house twice
3.)We already explained why calling the police is a bad idea.
4.)The last thing we want is our mom walking into a dangerous situation unawares.
>>
>>3323030
The not talking bit is strange when we can probably just make our voice a little higher pitched or pretend to only whisper to Yuu so that we can make up a cover story. There's not really any reason we have to actually look like Jahy either.
A good cover story might be Yuu "forgetting" to babysit her cousin got her in deep shit.
Then we just pretend to be shy and hide behind Yuu the whole time.

We could ask/text Yuu's mom to keep an eye on our mom for a bit to keep her away. I honestly don't know what's going to happen if she meets Sachiko face to face, but it probably can't be good.

>>3323208
Probably gonna be difficult to hold back our own rage upon seeing her too now that I think of it. I'm not sure how it skipped my mind.
>>
>>3323210
>Probably gonna be difficult to hold back our own rage
I don't think so, because there is too much at stake right now and our fight with arc not only left us rather weak, but also showed us that we need to get stronger.

>>3323208
>We could ask/text Yuu's mom to keep an eye on our mom for a bit to keep her away.
but how are we gonna do that? sashiko is here right now. we can speak with marie and raye, but i don't know how they will be able to help in that matter.
>>
>>3323208
We don’t have Mrs. Mitsukoshi’s number. We just would know Junko’s mom’s number. That would mean texting our mom to keep Mrs. Mitsukoshi away. Which was what I proposed doing.
>>
>>3323219
>>3323223

We are a physical manifestation of wrath. I'd like to think that even if we do hold it back , we are most definitely resisting the urge to put a wooden stake through her heart.

Kids usually get left with a smartphone/tablet to play with nowadays if Natalya doesn't go daaw over the cute little girl.
Or Yuu makes an excuse that she's carrying us back to her mom to go out for a minute.
>>
>>3323062
We don’t really have time to come up with anything but the most basic cover story. I don’t know why everyone thinks it’s a good idea to come up with a convoluted story for Yuu to have some new relative or let some weird mute girl in her house. Especially since Yuu already called us Mom.

We can just pretend to be one of the adults that really do have access to the house. We just would need to make sure they stay away.
>>
>>3323231
We haven’t snapped yet. Despite having chances to do so. That’s Marie’s thing. Junko has been pretty calculating when it comes to her revenge. Junko is more frightened than wrathful if you look at the options.

>Why do anons think it’s a good idea to hang around the Sachiko and Natalya in disguise. That seems like a worse idea then send Marie after Rei.
>>
>>3323233
>We can just pretend to be one of the adults that really do have access to the house.
We'd need to talk, sound AND act like Yuu's mom; those are 3d100 rolls where we have to roll pretty low and failure in any of those three will reveal that something is wrong. Its way easier to fake (and for the other girls to believe that we are) a random mute girl or kid that they have never seen before.

>>3323243
>Why do anons think it’s a good idea to hang around the Sachiko and Natalya in disguise.
Because they are already here and are opening the door. All the options other than Yuu distracting them(maybe) have a high chance of us being discovered and forcing a fight that we aren't capable of winning right now because we are tired among other things.
>>
>>3323243
Who said anything about hanging around? We just need to not obviously be Junko and then GTFO as soon as we can.
>>3323233
It's not that convoluted for a random little kid to be Yuu's cousin or just like playing with her.
>>
>>3323258
>We'd need to talk, sound AND act like Yuu's mom

No we don't. Sachiko isn't interested in Yuu's mom. Just Yuu. All we have to do is look pissed and walk off. Yuu is going to have to stall them but it's partially her fault for running off to school in the first place without telling us. "Our daughter" is grounded and she invited friends over.

>we could just pretend to be Junko's Mom, who probably sounds just like Junko.

The little girl idea invites Sachiko into investigating us. She is not dumb she already thinks something is up. Your mom coming home is mundane.

>The only other thing we could try is to shapeshift into a mystery boy and pose as Yuu's boyfriend but Yuu didn't tell us that story and we would invite attention from the other girls.

>No we don't. Sachiko isn't interested in Yuu's mom. Just Yuu. All we have to do is look pissed and walk off. Yuu is going to have to stall them but it's partially her fault for running off to school in the first place without telling us. "Our daughter" is grounded and she invited friends over.
Sashiko probably has seen Yuu's mom before and in your greentext we'd have to interact with them because we can't just look menacing and stand there: we as the mom have to get them out.

>Your mom coming home is mundane.
Except oficially, this is Yuu's mom house. Having Junko's mom come is odd at the very least but the chances of her launching an investigation after seeing a random kid are way lower than after seeing our mom
>>
>>3323279
The MG group were all theoretical friends. The parents all should at least be slightly familiar with everyone and vice versa. There is far more error to fuck up like Yuu's mom coming in 30 seconds later. Any imitation of an existing person would fail. You say Sachiko isn't interested, but since she did track Yuu down she might want to "innocently" ask about the circumstances of the inheritance. Then we end up having to talk. Then we fail the imitation.

Random adults/teens showing up would be creepy and cause for alarm even if it was mysterious boyfriend X since we strolled right in without knocking.

A little kid showing up to play if she met Yuu earlier or was told to babysit is at least plausible.

Of course in retrospect we probably could just go around the corner depending upon the house layout since it's supposed to be huge.
>>
>>3323341
The jig would also be up the instant Natalya properly introduces herself (which she would have to be to not be rude ) and Yuu is good at teamwork with us so she can probably improvise or cooperate.

Panicking you immediately covered yourself in darkness and the next thing you know, you are a kid. You're like hip waist level with Yuu. You just shapeshifted yourself like an elementary school kid.

"Oh! Yuu there you are, I was worried th-....Oh hello little girl, What's your name?"

"She's......what is you name again?"

"My Yuu, how rude."

You pretend to puff your cheeks and kick her in the shins. Yuu yelp in pain as Sachiko laughs.

"Well why not invite the little girl in. Hey Natalya Yuu brought a little girl?"

"Really?"

Running in lightning speed she suddenly picked you up and toss and catch you while she laughs. You can only shout afraid that she may not get lucky by catching you.

"Ahahahaha this is a cute kotyonok. Where did you find this Yuu-san?"

"She is my neighbor. And please stop tossing her."

Then she hugs you......very hard. Your skin starts to burn.

"But I wanna keep this one. Ahhhhh say Sachiko? Does Japan have a lot of child disappearance right? I wanna take her home with me."

"No Natalya, that is kidnapping. And also we are at the rich part of the town means either her parents are influential or has a high paying job."

"Then the russian government will pay the parents for this cute little solnyshka for me."

"Please don't"

"What do you mean Russian goverment?"

"Oh? You see Yuu-san, I am a mercenary but I am employed by the Russian Goverment. Even though we are just a special division, we don't really see some action because it's peacetime. So I accept missions from whoever gives me money."

"Then what about Sachiko?"

"Oh? Well, let's just say that she saved me one time and she is cashing in her favor to me. So here I am."

"I see......."

Hearing about this, Natalya is another thorn on your side. You don't know what are her powers are. But that line of thinking was cut off as you are getting uncomfortable from the stinging sensation of hope energy burning from your body.

"Say why are you very silent my dear solnyshka?"

Great, the Russians militarized magical girls. I would expect they would get worried if she went missing.
>>
>>3323837
It's sort of not surprising.

In Russian folklore (and RL) there exactly two sorts of people that can survive actually being outside in Russia for more than a few minutes.
Bogatyr and witches. If you are not a bogatyr you are dead. Do not even try to go outside fishing. Your daughter will hear your death screams on cellular phone as bear eat you alive a few hundred feet away.I'm not even making that part up since it actually happened to a guy. Just being a bogatyr is not a guarantee that you can survive. It merely increases your odds. If you are not an exceptionally strong bogatyr then running into certain witches and surviving is entirely based on their mood.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bogatyr
It seems less that Russia militarized them so much as they were roughly an existing "military" force.
If magic and all that is female only in this universe then it's safe to assume the legends are slightly different to incorporate them into that myth.

If we get a chance we might want to offer Natalya some food or drink and see how she takes it. Remember what Marie suggested for Yuu. It would be the cosmic irony of all ironies if we can poison the Russian operative's food with radiation...err corruption
>>
>>3323906
welll... there might be some leftover food from raye's morning batch. we could try to corrupt that, but i don't know if sashiko or the ruskie will notice.
>>
>>3323920
Start off with something uncorrupted to see if she how she reacts. Raye's muffins are pretty distinctive. See if we have some nice fruit or candy We want to find out if she scans it or something. If she is not paranoid of us we can use that to our advantage. Then find out where she is staying through Okada later so we can come back with more food and slowly poison her. It gives us more time to work on the voice thing too.
>>
>>3323889

You begin to sniffle as best as you can. Then you wiggle your arms away from the grip of this russian girl and try to reach Yuu.
Yuu notice this and she stands up to get you. But not when Natalya not wanting to give you.

"No, she is my solnyshka."

"Please Natalya-san and also I don't know what that solwachamacallit."

"It's called kitten. She is a cute kitten."

"She is a girl, so please you are scaring the poor girl."

"......Fine."

She hands you and you hug her immediately. But that is also a bad idea as you start burning with hope energy again. It burns so bad that you just need to act more convincingly to them.

"There, there, are you okay?"

"That white girl scares me."

"Of course, don't worry, you're safe."

You tug her again.

"What is it?"

"Bathroom."

"Oh, Go to my room over there, there's the bathroom. Do you know how to use it?"

You nod.

"Good, now go along."

You scurry past Natalya and Sachiko and resumes their talk.

"Yuu, something happened on Kan-"

Raye is hurt and Marie is totally unreliable this could be an obvious trap to feel out our capabilities. We should go with them and only go if Yuu goes with Sachiko
>>
what about sending some of okada's shadows/goons to scout ahead? he can definitely do that.
>>
>>3323906
Bad idea. Then she'd really be on high alert, we'd give away our general location, and Yuu isn't on board with that sort of thing. Plus we have no motivation to do so unless we get a bunch of petty jealousy about Sachiko not abandoning her to die. That seems out of character.
>>3323959

We can clue Yuu in on anything we were gonna say to her after they leave.

>magical girl spetznaz
she's not magical. we were manhandled very roughly by her and we didn't burn. She might have special training and equipment to deal with paranormal threats, but so far, she's human.

>>3324028
we also have the advantage that these shadows can use cars and can use binoculars and other kind of stuff apart from their usual infiltration skills.
>>
>>3324020
And probably make up a fake nickname for Yuu her to call us by before Natalya actually tries to investigate us for a kidnapping.
>>3324028
They're literally next door. If they find one they're gonna canvass the area to see where they came from and may accidentally bypass the barrier.
Now if you want some disposable ones that are already outside to check out things in the city while most of the magical girls are at Yuu's house. That would actually be great. If Okada has investigating shadows (or mundane mooks that know better than to squeal on an undead) he could have Sachiko's room investigated to try and figure out wtf she's doing until they leave.

>>3324036
We quite explicitly started burning and that's fairly troubling when you consider that we're actually resistant to burning unlike Marie and Raye.
>>
>>3324049
oh shit, you are right. i thought it was Yuu the one that was handling us there.
>>
>>3324049
there is no need to dispatch shadows from Okadas mansion. If i recall correclty, he already has a network of sorts in the city. we just need him to order the closest one to Kanna's house to give it a look and report back.

Ah, you wanted to check out Kanna? We just need to convince Yuu to actually check and see if she's ok instead of brushing us off and it sounds like that work is being done for us right now.
The more I think of it, the more I like the search Sachiko's apartment while we explicitly know she's not there angle. I just really hope she didn't learn any tricks from DnD like explosive runes and Okada has nonshadow personnel he can trust to check out magical stuff. Dude goes in, takes pictures, sends in what he learned and goes underground for a few days incase she tries to track him.

You left the door open and go to the bathroom. Sadly the voice are muffled as they start to talk very quietly, yet thanks to the house. A little bit of conversation, albeit you can only hear a little bit of words.

".........is...danger.........his bro.....time."

"What do.....mean?.......that.........."

".........Although, there.........that."

".......grounded......home."

You mentally call Marie for the moment as you cannot really decipher what they are conversing right now.

"Mary, something happened to Kanna."

"What?" What happened to her."

"Sachiko and her friend Natalya from Russia is visiting the new house. I didn't know how the hell they tracked her."

"Maybe that Natalya is the one who tracked her."

"Probably, still were in danger. Do not let anyone go out in the moment. Even the shadows."

"Gocha. I'll inform uncle."

You go back to the room where you can hear the end of the conversation.

"Alright, we will visit on her home."

As you go to Yuu, Sachiko then inquires.

"What about this child?"

"Oh wait Sachiko-san. I have an idea."

She then crouches down at you with an icy smile in her face and pats your head.

"Say girl......wanna be a magical girl?"

"Natalya please......"

Yuu can only stare at you.

Swatting would be fun, but isn't remotely as fun if Sachiko isn't inside the house when that happens unless the crazy bitch has been keeping trophies of dead magical girl bodies for experiments.

Hide behind Yuu.
>>
>>3324214
>if Sachiko isn't inside the house
we can always do it between 3 and 6 am. that's right before she goes to school, but after she returns from her magical duties. Its also at this time where whe will be the most tired and she might try to kill someone and give the cops the chance and right to kill her.

>the crazy bitch has been keeping trophies of dead magical girl bodies for experiments.
That's why we send the shadows in a suicide mission to plant drugs, weapons, nerve agents or whatever other hazard we can find.
>>
>>3324214
I toyed around with idea of getting Sachiko busted with drugs but dropped the idea. It screams someone is out to get you and will tip her off, we don’t know if she has security measures in place to keep us from placing the drugs, and Sachiko’s mental powers might just let her walk away from the police.
>>
>>3324250
I'm not actually for swatting, but if we were to theoretically do that in the future, we could try to make a sort of shielding for the police's memories ahead of time so that she cacn't just stroll out without violence and use that time she's "contained" to get up to something major.
>>
>>3324369
We could try to figure out how the blessing Sakura put on the mansion works. I've been saying we should learn how it works (It's probably Yuu's part of the powers) so we can make more safehouses, maybe a charm so we can move Okada/ make the other girls invisible to scans as well.

Sakura said we can access all of her powers back when we made that deal. We don't actually need Yuu's help theoretically. We just need more shadows to om nom nom so that we can safely use Sakura's powers. Sakura is also weirdly silent too now that I think of it.
>>
>>3324408
I think it's because she either made Saki-chan (the girl that was fighting with Arc) a shadow as a backup plan if Junko didn't pan out or Saki-chan is hunting Sakura for some reason. Lord knows what Sakura was up to in the void. The worst possibility is Sakura is still trying to screw us somehow.
>>

You run immediately behind Yuu and hug her thigh. Peeking behind Yuu you shake your head.

"Why do you want to make that one a Magical Girl?:

"Well she has the same light as ours. In fact, I am very interested in her."

"Come on now Natalya before I saw a crime in front of my eyes. Yuu, follow us."

"Yeah......"

Yuu crouch down to and say....

"Stay here in the house alright? Do not go out and STAY here especially, do not RETURN to your home. Understand?"

"Why?"

"Because......"

"Yuu, come on."

Yuu stands up and nods at you. You are left alone in the house. What did she mean not to return? Still what will you do?

You contact Marie again as you try to think why would Yuu say that.

"Marie, is Raye alright?"

"Still sleeping. Should I wake her up?"

"If she can move, then do it. Then Shadow Yuu, they just got outside of the house. Also call Okada if she can make a shadow that looks like Yuu, I'll send the picture on your phone."

"Alright."

You then try to call Sakura inside your mind.

>"Sakura?"

God damn this fucking thread, I swear whoever bind me here, I'll fucking wreck her. I swear to my mom and dad I will bash her skull on the concrete floor and corrupt that motherfucker and I will punish this bitch and make her my toy.

She kept screaming profanities to no one until you shout at her for attention.

>"SAKURA!!"

WHAT!!

>"What do you mean we were tracked? I thought we would be immune by that."

Yeah tell me that, this is very unique. So unique I don't even know where it originated.

>"Would it help that the one who cast it was a Russian?"

Let me guess? White hair? Has a scar in her left eye?

>"Yes, that one."

Of course, she tried to kidnap me and go to Russia with her, saying something like making an army of magical girls. Of course I refuse. But she was so insistent that we have to duel it and that is where I got her scar.

>"So you are the one who.....she said that I felt familiar. She thought that I was related to you since you are inside of me."

Of course. You can go out if you want but do not return to the mansion. The thing is, there is so little places to go so yeah, better stay here and untangle this piece of shit. So sit back and relax alright?

"So, what are you gonna do? Your daughter said she is dead."

"I think, I'm gonna go back to my parents home. Maybe ask my parents to let me in their business. They are selling candies. I don't know after that, maybe live the rest of my life as a widowed woman who is still griefing for my lost daughter."

"To be honest, I shouldn't even drinking right now. I have an appointment to the embassy. Gonna move out of the country. I need to protect my daughter you know."

"I evny you, you still have your family. I'm basically alone now."

"And this is why were here right? To drown our sorrow away."

"Yeah, but after all of this, my sorrow will still stay. It feels so bad you know."

The two mothers continue to console each other as another bottle of sake and another dozen of beers are delivered on their table.

You are Yuu Mitsukoshi and along with Sachiko and Natalya, you arrived at Kanna's house. Going inside, is where you are greeted by his brother who is in low spirits.

"Ah girls, thanks for coming in. My sister is above."

Nodding all of you file up the stairs and into the room of Kanna. Coming inside, you see Kanna playing on her handheld device. Sachiko drops down several books and Natalya readies her glasses. You come to her and pick her handheld game device out of her.

"Onii!! St-.....Oh."

"Kanna, You are not going to be on a remedial class. You need to pass this or you won't have time for summer for our patrol duties."

"B-But me and my friends already want to go to summer class."

"Nope, go over there and sit. We gonna drill it to your head so hard your IQ will increase by 20."

The cries of Kanna can be heard outside of the house. Kanna's brother clasp her hand in prayers saying goodluck to her.


........

Marie and Raye are a little ways from Kanna's home when suddenly, Raye heard Kanna shout. Marie goes immediately when Raye stops her. She shakes her head and Marie calms down.

>"Junko, something happened inside Kanna's house?"

>"What happened?"

>"We only heard a shout."

>"Alright, as long as Yuu is fine then don't go in. Is she still fine right?"

You look at Raye and she nods.

"Yeah still fine."

You continue the surveillance on Kanna's house waiting for something to happen.

...........

Natalya is drilling Kanna with math, her worst subject. Who the heck draws a smiley face on a circle when the problem is to find the circumference of the circle? Still thanks to her you secretly write some notes as her method of solving was very efficient and easy to learn. After Natalya, Sachiko teaches Kanna about Science and Japanese Classics. Needless to say Kanna was at least having progress on Science but almost asleep when Sachiko teaches about literature. Poor girl.

Then it's your turn. You teach her how to cheat. You are doing it for life and hell you are gonna do it probably forever. As long as you aren't obvious. Sachiko is frowning at you very hard not proud at what you teaching Kanna while Natalya give you a thumbs up. The study session for Kanna continues.

........
It's been 3 hours since you are sitting on the roof of some random house. Raye then tugs your shirt.

"Hm?"

"Do you know any of Kanna's friend?"

"Why?"

"Why don't we kidnap her by pretending Kanna's friend?"

"Hmmmm......let me get that on Junko."

...........

DONE!! AT LAST THE BINDING IS DONE. Now all I have to do is to make her unaware that we undo the tracking spell. So where do you want to put it Junko?

>"You're asking me?"

Why not?

>Write-in (Where do you want to put it?

Then another voice in your head is calling at you.

>"Junko, me and Raye have a plan to shapeshift as Kanna's friends. Can we get your permission to do it?"

Not a bad idea

>Sure, but be careful.
>No, too dangerous.
>Write-in (another order?)
>>
>>3324682
>No, too dangerous. The Russian girl can even track me. Hold position. I will meet you there.
>>
>>3324682
>No, too dangerous.
>The russian girl is a mercenary magical girl that might be general of an army of said magical girls and both of you ooze corruption. Hell, the Russian girl can even track me and that's not supposed to happen!

>Where do you want to put it?
The first public service vehicle (that's not a bus) that we see. Or a piece of trash
>>
>>3324682
>>3324682
>Call Okada and place the tracker on a shadow that looks like the girl and send it on a plane out of town.
>No, too dangerous. The Russian girl can even track me and can sense shadows. Hold position. I will meet you there. Marie don't you dare get any ideas. Keep talking to me. Do you want to try meditating with me later. If not it's been a long time since we had a girls night.
>>
>>3324698
i wanna support this, but when the ruskie tries to intercept the girl, she'll see its a shadow and grow suspicious of Yuu. What if we attach it to a random passenger instead? preferably to a tourist that is returning home.
>>
>>3324703
That's a good idea but I don't know how long Marie's attention span will hold before she does something stupid. Maybe Okada can help us get to the airport and back faster.
>>
>>3324708
err... it's gonna take us about an hour to get to the airport and return...but probably the harbor is closer? anybody working on a big ship is a good target.
>>
>>3324682
>Put the tracker on an international traveler.

>No as Your queen I order you not to do this. The russian girl is a mercenary magical girl that might be general of an army of said magical girls and both of you ooze corruption. Hell, the Russian girl can even track me and that's not supposed to happen! Think if Sachiko figures it out you will both die. I will met your there once I dispose of this tracker.

I have an idea to keep Marie's attention.
>Hey Marie, you said after we got finished with Rei you would explain to me what was going on. What the heck were you and Raye arguing about while we were fighting that shadow.

Little Junko gets the birds and the bees from a member of the lilly and the rose tribe if you get the reference.
>>
>>3324726
oh a little late but I forgot that was Arc and not the shadow. Getting a bit late here
>>
>>3324724

>"Marie, don't. The russian girl is a mercenary from a military. She is dangerous and probably Sachiko bodyguard. Do not engange and also, need I remind you that you are full shadows. You're gonna get in combat before you get close."

>"Oh yeah, I forgot about that."

>"Good, then wait for me and keep the surveillance."

>"Alright."

"Say Raye."

"Yes?"

"Does a shadow get sick?"

The rain outside is still pouring and you don't know when will you are gonna finish staking out Kanna's house.

..............

You immediately go outside and greeted by a downpour of rain. Conjuring yourself a raincoat. You jump and jump until you are halfway onto Marie's position. You drop down on one of the famous tourist area where you see a male huddling himself from the rain with an oversized bag on his back. You just attached the supposedly tracker on him like a ball throwing at him except he can't see it. Although it look silly to those who could see you, it is little consequences to you as your face is covered from the hood of your raincoat. The tracker sticks immediately on the unsuspecting foreigner and you move to where Marie position is.

.............

At last, the study session was finished and you are helping yourselves with snacks that was brought by his brother. He then bow at you three.

"Thank you for helping Kanna. You see the reason I want to do this is because, our family is planning for a trip on the southern islands. So we wanted Kanna to not take remedial class and have her summer days open for our family to have a vacation."

Kanna then grumbles.

"Now you know why I don't want to study."

Well technically, she wants to fail the exam so he can take the remedial classes and not go with them and stay with you, on the other hand, that means she will be safe from whatever Sachiko plans from both of you.

"Why not pass it? I mean you can decline right?" Sachiko adds.

"What she said." Natalya adds.

"Yeah, you don't need to fail if you want to hang with us." You reinforce what they say just to go with their flow. But his brother interjects.

"No can do Kanna, we can only do this sometimes and it would be better for us to have a bonding with family."

"I guess you're right."

"Well Kanna, I think we are gonna go home for today."

"Oh, thanks for your help Sachiko, Natalya, Yuu.....although Yuu didn't help much."

"That was mean! That what I told you is between life and death, you may never know when you will use it."

All of you laugh as the rain kept pouring outside of Kanna's house. With Junko coming to Marie and Raye position, Natalya involvement on your revenge and Arc doing something behind the scenes, what will our villain do to attain her revenge? What will Junko do? Will Yuu be safe ever again? What about the two mother who are dead drunk in the bar? What about Okada's gamble on stock market? And what will happen about that teleporting shadow? Find our next time in......

MAGICAL GIRL REVENGE QUEST

Well see you tomorrow. My head screams sleep right now.
>>
I wonder when Arc is gonna figure out that what we said implies multiple psycho magical girls instead of us just berating her.
>>
>>3324896
Lord knows. It sounds like Arc may have a suspicion that something is really wrong here since she is bullshitting the organization. Maybe shadows aren't the only ones into survival of the fittest. Reminds me of the old saying the fish rots from the head.

We defiantly need to get stronger to deal with this stuff but we keep having to put out fires if we lie or we tell the truth. Now we have to deal with Mrs. Mitsukosh's plan to leave the country.

Sachiko will freak just like with Mari, except now Yuu is being tracked. Hopefully Mrs. Mitsukoshi will fuck up her own appointment from the consequences of going out as "responsible adult". I never thought the moms would be this bad. Seriously, I kind of want Junko to chew them out over their actions while they are hung over. I get moving Yuu but who finds out their daughter is in danger and decides to leave her alone to get loaded. It really is safer for Yuu to be around us than off alone now that we know entire governments are involved in this stuff and Yuu is really really depressed. I think we should lay into her mom that Yuu has tried to kill herself and being alone is the worst thing for her.

Luckily, we have a Yuu shadow in production and know how to get that tracker off. We might need Okada to dust off that plane crash except this one might have to be messier. I wonder if we could fake Yuu falling to corruption and crashing the plane with no survivors.
>>
>>3325207
Eh. We were supposed to be looking out for her. It's really our failure for not noticing them walking up next door and we're actually lucky they were out before our mother had a possible breakdown on sight at seeing Sachiko. At best we can call it even in an argument and mothers are experts at twisting your words like a monkey's paw to make you 100% in the wrong when they do something bad.

We're clearly a vengeful spirit and you almost never trust those unless you want a bad end in any mythology, Sachiko is a highly sucessful serial killer that will eventually go for her daughter, and trying to go to authorities has been ruled out as that will only provoke the murderer. She's doing the smart thing.
Unfortunately for her Natayla actually makes at least two reasons why the embassy visit might fail spectacularly. One is that she's military which means countries roughly consider MGs military assets. Yuu's mom is trying to permanently leave the country with essentially a fully operational and loaded fighter jet or tank. I don't think Japan is going to want to lose Yuu.
Two is that Natayla is a mercenary which probably means there is infrastructure and market for magical girl whatever worldwide. This brings back the same reasoning for Japan not wanting to lose Yuu or at least treating the sudden move extremely seriously. There might be red tape, and excessive security checks to make sure Yuu isn't some sort of assassin/etc which will obviously stall her attempt to hell.

The good news on that front is the mom might stumble into some sort of authority that actually knows about magical girls and which busts the web of intrigue wide open. HQ and Arc suspect something, but not on the scale of a mass murdering magical girl, numerous dead MGs coming back as revenants, unholy abominations of magical sciences, and whatever else we haven't discovered. Arc is like a doctor sent to Racoon city for a flu epidemic right now.
