Satori's eyes widen as your gaze locks with hers.
"Don't you even think about it. I'll speak you to you after I've dealt with my sister." She says, pointing at you. Too late, she knows. But that won't stop you now. The door is open, the only thing in the way is her. Koishi's mind-warping influence falls away as you
Time almost seems to slow, your own body speeding up as you hurl yourself off the bed. You've still got the backpack, and you compensate for the weight, not wanting to smash the contents against the wall or door.
Satori instantly side-steps as you move, ready to kick your feet out from under you or just grab you by the scruff of your neck as you try to escape.
Her eyes are still half-lidded, her gaze unconcerned and lazy. She's reading your every move, she can see each decision as you make it. Have to confuse her somehow, have to throw her off, shock her, blind her, make her lose her cool. You could hit her, or knock her down, but your mind rejects such actions. She might be a freaky mind-reading underground monster, but she's still a young woman.
You run for the door, just as she expects, then suddenly twist as you reach her. Pulling something like this would be impossible normally, but the weight in your chest gives you the extra gravity, the pivot you need to spin around behind Satori, catch her in your arms and tip her back towards you.
Her eyes widen in surprise, her legs almost giving out underneath her. You have quite literally swept her off her feet. Acting on instinct means she can't follow what you're doing, but instinct is fickle, and you're still a young man.
"Mmm!" She lets out of muffled cry of surprise when you kiss her. It lasts only a moment, just long enough to shock her into inaction.
She lands on her ass when you drop her, now bright red in the face.
"You-" She starts, but you skip to the doorway, cutting her off.
"Sorry ladies, looks like my cue to leave." You grin, unable to help yourself. Koishi is grinning right back, giving you a thumbs-up. It would almost be enough to make you shudder, but you're feeling too good now.
This thing in your chest, this weight, this power, it's like a drug. You've gone from psychological breakdown to high as a kite in less than three minutes.
"Wait!" Satori raises a hand, but you're already running.
The hallway flashes past as you let the weight in your chest fade again. It got you away from Satori, but surely you can make it out of Chireiden under your own power. Who's going to stop you now? The cat? You laugh, hurtling down the corridor and back toward the stairs.
A door slams behind you and you look over your shoulder. Satori hurriedly locks Koishi in her room before rushing after you.
"Wait!" She calls again.
[ ] Keep running, ignore her completely.
[ ] Keep running, but hey, you can think at her, right?
[ ] "How about no?" Keep running.
[ ] Stop, hear her out. Keep your distance.
