01  ❀  I’VE SPENT SO LONG SITTING DOWN HERE

I - [335 Brady Lane, morning of Tuesday]

[Hi, folks. Looks like the house has a new mom. Because there's a screech coming from the 'parents'' bedroom. And a frantic scrambling. And sudden clunking sounds. It seems she's fallen down the entire flight of stairs from the top floor to the bottom. She's at the landing, laying on her face.]

Ouch.

[Whelp, looks like she's not dead, at least.]

I do believe this is my bad karma for today. 

II - [phone - Wednesday morning]

Ah! Is this device working? Hello, populace of Mayfield. My name is Byakuren Hijiri. I'm the founder and head of the Buddhist Myouren Temple back in Gensokyo, Japan. I do ask, is anyone here from home? I tried to make contact yesterday, but the snow was interfering rather badly.

Additonally, if anyone ever wishes to study about our dharma-- [Something in the background cuts her off.]

III - [Brady Lane, morning - Friday]

[GUESS WHO'S NEVER SHOVELED SNOW BEFORE, GUYS. She seems to think it's some sort of fun activity. Because she's outside of her house, shoveling away and singing some sort of Japanese folk song.]

Now, I don't get why I hear people complaining about this activity so much. It's very invigorating. Hi-ho...

IV - [Church - evening, Friday]

[GUESS WHO'S ALSO NEVER BEEN TO A PLACE LIKE THIS. Mayfield is full of ~*~wonders~*~, guys. So don't mind her if you see her there, flipping through the prayer books, gaping in awe at the stained glass windows and pews, and generally just skipping over the tiles on the floor like a giddy schoolgirl.]

My, my, Christian churches are so lovely for the eyes.

Ha ha, so you're part of our little group of hostages, eh? I'll believe you. You're the odd one out, as far as I can tell.

[He stops stepping down on her head, but doesn't offer to help her up or anything. What a dick.]

I'm not completely sure of the details yet, but basically, you've been kidnapped. Don't know who did it or why, but this whole town's full of people in the same situation. You're stuck here indefinitely, and you'll be living in this house with me and some other scumbag.

Hopefully you're not an insider who's trying to bullshit me. That would be unfortunate for you.

That's a naive set of morals to adhere to, but I guess it means you're not a bad person. In that case, you're gonna hate living here.

Because I'm scum, and so is the other guy that lives here. Your preaching will be lost on me. You might have a better chance with him, because he's a deluded idiot.

I'm not known for being nice. I won't do anything to hurt you if you don't provoke me or meddle in my business, but I'm not going out of my way to be polite to you. Sorry.

Alright, you can try if you want. I look forward to your ridiculous lectures.
