“That’s great to hear! I was worries the usual charms, and barriers wouldn’t be enough, and we can’t push them beyond, the poor little ones will be unable to even go inside the building at that point” Katy said.
“She’ll be meeting with us after we finish renovating the area, though a lot of their realm had seeped out, it had ceased, at least for the time being all attempts to spread.” Rin said.
“Guess that just leaves cleaning up the mess…well at least we avoided a catastrophe, I’ll be sure to let the staff know right away.” Katy said.
“T-that may be…b-but I have two, they’re both developing rapidly…I think Anon might have helped them along the right path…kind of like a double edge sword…” Mizari mumbles.
“We knew the gamble dumping him in there…the least we can do is honor our bet, and grant him access to more positions here…he may soon join the rest of you as a head caretaker” Katy said.
“Y-you mean…h-he, a-and I will work even closer to-together?” Mizari gasped.
“You could just share the same night shift…sure you’ll lose sharing graveyard, but hey more time to uh…generate employee to employee professional relationship, and dependence in the work environment” Fubuki quoted the last part from their legal team.
“I’m not…every time I get ask the same question…’are you going to dress up as Spider Gwen, and every time I remind them that her backside can’t hold a candle to mine…not to mention my bountiful bosom” Nirvana scoffed.
“Speaking of…who do you think will win in a fight!? I have high hopes for my Solid Snake!” Katy said.
“For the last time Katy, just because his name has the word ‘snake’ in it, doesn’t mean he is directly linked to them” Nirvana said.
“Well that’s easy, obviously Mr. Freeze is top dog! I mean, I don’t mean to brag, but me, and him are kind of complex characters so we can relate on that” Fubuki said.
“You are delusional Fubuki…given my time in the…*ahem*…craft I have deduced that Doctor Doom’s supperior intellect will trump any foe” Rin said.
“Same goes for you too Rin, just because his name has the word ‘doctor’ in it doesn’t mean-” Nirvana said.
“He has a PHD” Rin added.
“How about we have a little more fun with this…what do you say Rin?” Fubuki challenged.
“Very well…let us set the stage first though…no need for collateral damage” Rin said.
“Well at least you’re being civil about it.” Katy said.
“I can supply with you a number of different tasks, sure to keep you from thinking about your increasing boredom” The Orphanage doctor Lich Rin murmured.
“Just…well~ come on~ It’s been two whole days~! And it’s been work this, and raise that…I already taught the girls on my end how to filate a salmon, and clean grease stains off a couch with natural ingredients! I don’t know what else is left for me Rin~!” Fubuki whined.
“Perhaps assisting Kaitlyn in diplomatic discussions with the realm of Wonderland…granted I understand her decision to leave you behind…” Rin acknowledged.
“Bored Fubuki? Not enough work?” Katy seemed like she was ready to dish out some labor.
“It’s no fun when Anon isn’t here…it’s like…great! Back to normal! Not even an incident to poke fun at” Fubuki said.
“That’s less paperwork, and insurance calls on our end! You should be happy Anon has went above, and beyond to not screw up” Katy said.
“Well…once he’s done in the underground…what do you think? Should we toss him at Wonderland?” Fubuki asked.
“We will…wait, and see” Katy did not say no.
“Well…I was just thinking about things…lately…” Kosame said.
“We also noticed a certain someone hasn’t visited your shrine in quite a while…” the Inari added.
“I suppose that is the case…I-I barely…noticed…” her tone felt fleeting, from casual to sad in only a few words.
“Cheer up my Lady Ryu! Surely it means your blessings are helping him substantially…no doubt he will return to you to tell you all this himself” the Inari read her like a book.
“Y-you think so-well I mean…so long as he is happy that is my happiness, I…I should get to work myself, in case anyone wishes to visit me” Kosame said.
“Real bummer about that fountain…gotta admit, even I liked it to an extent, not a lot of water tubs can fit someone like me you know” Nirvana said.
“You’re being awfully considerate, more so than you usually are” Katy said.
“I lost my fair share of possessions I cherished too, and besides it’s no fun to toy with you girls if you’re in a bad mood, if there’s anything I can do to relieve you of your sadness, I’ll…think about helping you” Nirvana said.
“Gee, thanks…how about you start by helping me take care of that little Wonderland problem then?” Katy suggested.
“…Hm~ well I suppose my partner did try to lead her on…how are you doing in there sweetie?” A newly wedded wife asked her husband in a rather troubling situation.
“…All I said was that her fire looked cool, and we were thinking about adopting someone” The recently hitched husband replied.
He was left squatting in a small cage with a little Will-O-Wisp cuddling him, the flames dissipating enough displaying the young girl’s satisfaction.
“W-we can take him out of the cage soon! Sweetie, maybe we talk about this first-” Katy began.
“No! My dad!” The Will-O-Wisp was rather defiant.
“Mizari taught you better than this you know” Katy reminded her.
“B-but…no one loves me~” the Will-O-Wisp started to cry.
“Aw, don’t feel too bad…you kind of reminded me of when I was young, and dressed up all goth, and stuff, it’s cool” the man assured.
“No~” Katy groaned under her breath while the wife sighed to herself.
“MY DAD!” The Will-O-Wisp cheered up right away, and squeezed him with new vigor.
