The gauntlet comes up again, you swing as if to block the bullets. Satori doesn't waver, but you can hear Okuu gasp.
You grin, standing your ground, hamming it up as best you can. One of the bullets touches your chest.
Another wave of super-heated air expands outwards from you, exploding into a ball of dark, muddy red light. Satori's bullets keep coming, but your bomb swallows them all as they approach.
"Woo! Go, little nuclear human, go!" High up above the battle, Okuu throws her arms up again, squealing wit delight at your overconfident antics. Satori's bullets keep coming, but the waves are far away now, giving you enough breathing space to compose yourself. Side-step, side-step, flash Okuu a grin, wink at Satori as she slows, try not too get too high on your own success.
The bullets finally end, shattering into a million shards of light and colour. Satori slumps in the air, dropping toward the ground a little too fast before catching herself and touching down with the tips of her shoes.
"Well well well!" You grin at her, wiping the sweat from your forehead. "Looks like I win."
"Yes." Satori says, expression unreadable. "Yes, you do win."
"Ohmygodsthatwassoawesome!" A blur of excited motion all but slams into you, barrelling you to the floor in a flurry of wing-beats.
"Uuwah!" You fall onto your backside, Okuu straddling you, her face split by a huge grin.
"You are the most awesome human ever!" She shouts. That rod-arm is worryingly close to your face, and the glow in Okuu's chest is almost erratic, pulsing wildly.
"Utusho." Satori says. "That's quite enough. I do believe he wishes to leave now, let him up."
"Wh-what?" Okuu's face drops as she looks over at Satori. "C-can't we keep him?! He's so cool! Did you see him fighting?! Look at this thing!" Okuu grabs your arm and holds it up, waving the gauntlet back and fourth. You wince, there's no knowing what'll happen if that thing goes off outside of a specifically non-lethal battle.
"Ahem." You cough, trying to sit up but thinking better of it when you realise that motion would put you face-first into Okuu's breasts and the unnerving glow inside her chest. "Er ... thanks, Okuu." You mumble.
"Don't you wanna stay?" She asks you, looking utterly crestfallen. "C-can't we give him a room?" She asks Satori. "Please! I'll look after him!"
"It's really up to him." Satori says. "I can't," she winces. "Can't force him at this point."
"D-don't you wanna play danmaku with me too?" Okuu looks at you, lower lip wobbling.
You do need somewhere to stay, and Satori can't take you prisoner anymore, right?
[ ] "If I stay then you'll look after me, Okuu?" Make a deal directly with her. She likes you now, and she's probably the most powerful thing in the Underground with all that nuclear technology stuck in her.
[ ] Ask Okuu to get off you. You won, you need to claim your prize from Satori. You'll deal with her now you're in a better position to negotiate.
[ ] Ask Okuu to get of you. Find the cat. You are dealing with the cat right fucking now before anything else happens.
