[x] Something...doesn’t feel right about this. Something...
I leaned in closer to the girl, trying to get a closer look at those writings. When I touched that ribbon of hers, I could feel shivers running down my spine, sensing a powerful seal that was contained in that ribbon-like ornament.
I flinched, backing away from the girl. My right hand was tingling from the touch of that ‘ribbon’, my suspicions confirmed. Something or someone much more powerful was sealed within this little girl, which I could barely sense from that brief moment of touch. I guess I should be lucky that I didn't do anything stupid.
“...Who are you?” I got my charms at the ready, backing away even further to put a good distance between the two of us. The girl giggled at me, which she stood up and started dusting her skirt. Granted, she did have the advantage, but I’m sure that there’s a weak point hidden within her too. “...I’ll ask again, who are you?”
“Is that so?” The girl grinned this time, bobbing her head to the side. Her red eyes were watching me, like she was checking me out for her next meal. “I’m Rumia, Miss Shrine Maiden.”
She started to walk around in a small circle, singing something that I could barely understand. I still had my charms up, ready to strike whenever she made her move. Though, I could have sworn that my surroundings were gradually disappearing from my sight, like there was some sort of spell going on.
Then, before my eyes, everything just simply vanished, a pitch black world. Okay, this was bad. I didn’t really expect this to happen, to be honest. This was irritating though. She could attack me anytime she likes without a warning. I’m wasting valuable time here too...
“Okay...first thing. What am I suppose to do?” I muttered to myself, thinking up a plan as I stood my ground. “I can’t do anything if I cannot see her...”
“Shrine Maiden, perhaps you could just give up? I could use a meal now, you know~” Rumia giggled, her tone sounded more forceful now, like she was mocking me. I could take all the insults from her and still beat her to a pulp. “Pretty please, with a cherry on top? I’m terribly hungry, after that stupid fairies ruined my plan~”
“...What fairies?” I called out, finding that sudden tidbit of information rather interesting. “I thought YOU were the one who attacked the village?”
“Is that so?” Rumia sneered, starting to laugh. “Those stupid fairies were the one who attacked the village, from that mansion over at the lake~ Why, they ruined my dinner and supper at the same time! If it wasn’t for that lady...”
She sounded like she was restraining herself, from missing her dinner or whatever that was. Right, what she said was quite useful. So, the fairies, which attacked the village, came from that creepy-looking mansion from the lake? Sounds like I have found my culprits, for that recent attack. Perhaps they were involved with the mist, if I’m lucky. Now, maybe I could do something about Rumia now. I had gotten what I needed to know from the hungry youkai here, blabbing it all out for me.
“I thank you for the information.” I bowed a little, exposing my neck there for the second. “Now...I should be getting along with my trip, if you would be so kind to let me go already?”
“Silly Shrine Maiden, didn’t you heard what I just said?” Rumia sounded amused, giggling yet again. God, it’s getting on my nerves. “I missed my dinner and supper! And the only source of food I can see here...would be you, the naive shrine maiden. You would make a nice meal, indeed.”
“...” I rubbed my forehead, feeling extremely annoyed with her constant boasting, threats, whatever! I needed to go and it will be now. “Very well...”
[Note: Spell options are available. I guess using IaMP spell cards should be okay. Or would you guys prefer EoSD?]
Confronting Rumia -
 I should strike first, though I have absolutely no idea where was she.
 I should be careful, since she still has the advantage.
 (Insert write in)
If attacking -
 The ying-yang orbs might do the trick. [Magic consumption.]
 Charms and needles just for her. Tons of them, in fact. [Item consumption]
 (Insert attack method)
If defending –
 Remain still, gain your bearings.
 A protective barrier, it might hold. But who knows for how long? (Magic consumption)
 (Insert defending method)
I would prefer write-in by the readers, so be creative. Boss Fight 1, go. Picture unrelated, I guess.
Merry Christmas eve.
