It looked like Mirai was fine after all...despite herself, Toushiko let out a relieved chuckle. "Did I, now...?" she said wryly. "Feels more like I got my ass handed to me, but hey, I'll take it."

With Mirai stepping back to give her some space, she decided to put her hands against the floor to try and push herself up again. With a grunt of effort, she raised herself up off the ground, ignoring the pins and needles shooting through her arms at the movement. She slowly managed to get to her feet, grabbing at the nearby counter for support and pulling herself up with it.

Once she'd pulled herself to standing, she leaned back against the wall behind her and sighed, letting herself recover for a moment. "So...since we're both still alive..." She looked down at Mirai and grinned. "Ya got any drinks for the big, bad hero?"

The green-haired girl wiped her tears once again, smiling brightly at her savior. "Hah, you sure about that?" her voice was still weak, despite attempting to sound like her usual self. "There's no slime around, and we're both fine." she snatched a bottle from the shelves behind the counter and handed it to Toushiko. "And here's your order; on the house."

With much of her immediate worries for the demoness lifted, Mirai began perusing her surroundings, some obvious things catching her eye. "You must have been really angry." she said, pointing at the holes in the ground, then the one in the form of a horned figure. But that was Toushiko for her, both back then and now. "People should learn not to mess with you, Toush... or your friends." Mirai was glad she could say that, it made her feel a little bit safer.

Toushiko nodded. "That's right. Who knows where it fucked off to, but honestly, I ain't gonna complain that it's gone," she said, grinning in anticipation as she popped off the cap with her finger and started downing the drink inside. She didn't bother looking at the label to see what it was; Mirai knew her tastes well enough by this point to get her something she liked, anyhow.

As she took in gulp after gulp, Toushiko's eye followed the damage Mirai was pointing out. She shrugged with one hand, not taking the bottle away from her mouth. Eventually, she popped the now-empty bottle away with a satisfied sigh, wiping her lips with her hand and setting it down on the counter.

"Aaah, good stuff..." She smiled at the faint, yet pleasant buzz settling in her head. It drove away her weakness, her doubt at being so easily defeated by such a strange creature, and her confidence started to swell once more. "Hell yeah," she grinned, jabbing a thumb at her chest. "Someone tryin' to mess with you? Well, they've gotta get through me, first!"

Mirai frowned as she looked at the nearby walls. Was that...acid?

"Just what the hell was that thing?" she pointed out at the green substance that deteriorated the ground and walls. "This must be some kind of acid." She scoffed. "In any case, this ain't getting through your skin, that I know for sure."

The girl took another bottle, eyeing it pensively. Why was she hesitating? This was something she would always do when feeling down. Was it her body's condition? No, it had to have been something else. There was something with her... She couldn't snap out of this state, she couldn't turn back to her old self.

"Funny... I don't feel like drinking... or doing much at all."

To say that she lived through the encounter with the creature unscathed would be a lie. Something had emerged from within, something that ate away at her.

Toushiko's smile faded. "Wait, what? Acid?" Holding her hand along the wall for support, she walked closer to Mirai and peered at the substance in question. Her brow scrunched up in confusion. "That's...uh..." she hesitated, trying to think back to what the slime did during their fight. "Mirai, I...don't think this came from that slime..." She stared at the half-dissolved wood, as if studying it closely would yield the answers she was looking for.

"Wait, what the hell...?" Toushiko squinted at something strange on the floor. She hadn't noticed it before, as it was far too small to pick up from a glance, but it looked like there were tiny white shards of something scattered across the wood. She knelt down and gingerly picked up one of the shards, turning it over in her fingers, questions already popping up in her head.

...Had this been here before? No, it would've been dissolved by the acid, right? Did this have something to do with the acid? This didn't look like something that slime would've had with it...well, maybe it could've, with all the little bits of itself it had coughed up everywhere. Maybe it had swallowed this from somewhere else...?

Among all these questions, though, one stood out like a sore thumb—the same one that had been nagging her incessantly since she'd woken up.

How was she still alive?

She'd seen that slime attacking Mirai, clear as day, with no intent of stopping until she had nothing left. The only reason Mirai had even survived was because Toushiko was able to interrupt that thing's vicious little mealtime. So, if it had managed to drain the oni into unconsciousness, then...why hadn't it finished the job?

Toushiko shook her head in exasperation. Too many questions, not nearly enough answers for her liking. She glanced at Mirai, frowning at the girl's hesitation. It seemed like she was pretty troubled by all this, too. Toushiko dropped the shard in a pouch on her belt, then stood up and made her way over to Mirai, slinging her arm over the girl's shoulder.

"Ah, c'mon! That's malarkey, and ya know it," she said, cracking a smile. "Nothin' wrong with a drink to celebrate our victory, right? We live another day! Eat, drink, and be merry, I say!"

Mirai had her eyes closed, thinking about her current situation, while also listening to her friend coming closer. "Maybe it's worth an investig-"

The sudden feeling startled her. A thick arm laid heavy on her shoulders, pulling her close to a big, now-warm oni. "Ah." she listened to her friend's usual cheeriness. It always put a smile on her face; that's what made Toush who she was. Mirai always thought it kind of ironic for a demon of the Underworld to be so optimistic and happy all the time, but she wasn't complaining.

"Always have a drink by your side, right?" she chuckled, slowly taking a sip from the bottle. "Baby steps." she brought the bottle to her face. "I'll spare you for now, bottle. But my friend here may not be so kind."

Mirai was still trying. She couldn't let something like this shake her up so badly... she couldn't.

Toushiko grinned, pleased that Mirai still remembered her catchphrase. "That's right! There's always time for a drink, after all!" With a good-hearted chuckle, she gestured toward the bottle with her free hand. "I think I'll spare it m'self, though. I've had my fill a' drinks for now."

She couldn't keep a straight face for more than five seconds. Moments after the words were out of her mouth, she broke into a shit-eating grin and threw her head back, letting her raucous laughter ring off the walls. "Hah, 'had my fill'! As if!" As her laughter faded into chuckles, she nodded her head toward the bottle. "Still, heh, keep it around for later." She winked. "Never know when ya might need it, y'know!"

"For later, huh?" she said, looking up at Toushiko. "Speaking of later... what do you plan to do now?"

"Now?" Toushiko's grin faded. "Well, uh..." Her gaze drifted across the room, covered as it was in splintered wood, bits of slime, and the acid along one wall. She sighed, and turned back to Mirai. "I can't just let that slime go, Mirai," she said quietly. "Whatever it is, it's bad news. It'll probably attack folks on sight 'till somebody takes it out for good."

She gave a reassuring smile. "And who better for the task than someone who already knows how it fights, eh?" She chuckled, a gleam of determination in her eyes. "If you ask me, it's high time we got a li'l payback, wouldn'tcha say?"

In truth, Toushiko could tell that Mirai still wasn't quite herself. Maybe it was just the numbness, maybe it was something more, but either way, seeing the life drained out of Mirai in more ways than one made Toushiko's blood boil. That thing wasn't about to get away with what it had done to the both of them, let alone what it could do to more people.

Mirai's expression tensed up. What was her plan? Going back to the Company, of course... right? It was obvious, everything was said and done - it was time to part ways. Yet why was she shaking?

"Toush..." she mustered the strength to talk, breaking her poor attempt at a facade. "I can't do it..."

It was about time, wasn't it?

She heard it so many times, but she didn't listen. The same phrase over and over, just with a different wrapping. The child returned from Hell is what many used to call her. They called it Hell, she called it the fun place. They called her dream impossible, yet there she was, building the future. Always going forward, never looking back... not anymore.

What happened today... was out of the imaginary even for Mirai. She had encountered midara before, but this... to be made so vulnerable, to be treated as nothing more than food... it chilled her to the bone. Such a horrifying feeling, to be alone in the all-consuming dark... Today she lost a part of herself, and she knew that. The girl could never feel safe anymore.

"I can't return..." she continued with downcast eyes. "I don't want to be away again." Mirai looked in the eyes of the oni. "Can I... Can I go with you?"

Toushiko's eyes widened. "Mirai..." she breathed.

So it wasn't just the numbness after all. That slime...no, that...that fucking bastard had taken something away from Mirai. Even with as long as they'd known each other, Toushiko couldn't remember ever seeing Mirai look so...defeated. No matter the obstacles in her way, no matter the adversity she faced, she always pushed forward with a sharp smile and brazen confidence that even the oni admired.

To see her like this...to hear her say, "I can't do it"...

Somewhere deep inside Toushiko, the embers of anger suddenly burst into an open flame of righteous fury.

That thing wasn't going to get away with this.

Toushiko knelt down so she could be face-to-face with the girl. "Mirai, listen..." she began quietly. "You know this is gonna be dangerous, right? Searching after that slime's gonna be tough enough, but then we're gonna have to face it again at the end." The oni reached forward and rested a heavy hand on Mirai's shoulder. "I can tell...this took a lot out of you," she murmured. Her tone held nothing but concern. "Are you sure you could handle encountering that thing again?"

"No..." she answered truthfully. "Not alone..." her pained figure told Toushiko everything. "I looked back, Toush. I stopped... and looked back." she cried again. "For the first time in my life."

She gently touched the hand on her shoulder. "And I saw you - time and time again. We always crossed paths, yet went on different ways; always saying goodbye." the girl built up a burst of confidence, ready to deliver the next line with the passion she felt it needed to be. "I don't want to say goodbye again - I can't say goodbye again! No matter what happens - I'll face it, but I won't say goodbye again!"

Mirai's eyes gazed into Toushiko's. She saw the oni's eyes flare up at her decision. "We need to help those people, Toush. This isn't just about me." she said, never having looked as serious as now. "I'll come around sooner or later, okay? For now we need to find that thing and I want to be with you every step of the way."

For a moment, Toushiko said nothing, intently studying Mirai's expression for any signs of doubt. To say that there were none would be a lie—the girl's face was drawn up with apprehension, and her voice still shook slightly when she spoke. She was obviously scared of what was to come.

And yet...Toushiko could see it immediately. Even through her fear, even through her darkest nightmare made manifest, Mirai's will to live still shone through. She wasn't about to turn and sulk under the safety of the shadows, forever letting that slime keep the life it had stolen from her. Instead, she was determined to take everything back, striding ahead confidently with her best friend by her side.

Toushiko nodded in approval. "If that's your decision..." She broke into her trademark grin. "Then let's make that snot-wad regret ever messin' with us!" She slipped her hand off Mirai's shoulder and stood up to her full height. "Chargin' headlong into danger because you're just that determined to succeed..." She smiled proudly down at her friend. "You've got more balls on ya than half the oni I know!" She laughed, reaching forward to ruffle Mirai's hair. "Never change, Mirai. Never change."

Mirai let out a sigh of relief. "Damn right."

The fear was still there, of course; the fear that what happened today could very well repeat, or worse. But seeing Toushiko just... walk it off made it impossible for her not to continue. In times of need, a friend is all it takes to make a difference and Mirai would not let go of her friend.

"Thank you, Toush... for always being there for me." she smiled softly, gazing at the setting sun through the hole in the wall.

It was getting late and that slime was probably too far away by now. Where it was headed, they did not know, but sitting around in the middle of nowhere wouldn't solve anything. Toushiko could carry on just fine, but she would only be a burden. Mirai's stomach growled like a starved beast and she could still feel the frigid cold stinging at her fingertips; she would not be able to travel like this - and resting here? She had standards - and a plan.

Toushiko chuckled. "Anytime, Mirai, anytime," she said, turning around to hunt for her club. She sauntered over to her trusty weapon, lying on the ground near the opposite wall, picking it up and smirking with satisfaction at all the black goo splattered across the metal. Looked like she'd still managed to send a message to the little mud-ball, after all.

Patting her belt to make sure she hadn't lost the valuable Jigoku no Kyoukai drink she'd bought from Mirai, Toushiko nodded to herself and turned to her friend. "Welp, I think I'm about ready to head out." Her eyes drifted down toward the sound of loud complaints issuing from Mirai's stomach, and she chuckled. "Y'know, if you're hungry, we can always try cookin' up some a' them scorpions out there!" she chirped, pointing a thumb toward the sight of the desolate wasteland outside. "They're probably good eatin'..." She shrugged. "Unless ya got any other bright ideas, anyhow."

Hearing Toushiko wanting to head off, Mirai momentarily imagined what it would be like if she tagged along: having the oni carry her within an hour, that's what. Not like that didn't trigger a couple of childhood memories.

"I think you were half-serious with that one." she smiled, reaching into her breast pocket. "And yes, I do have a couple of bright ideas."

In her hand lied a small device made of metal. She could only imagine Toushiko's following confusion at the inner-workings of this apparatus, if it wouldn't be turned off.

"Stupid thing." Mirai frustratingly pressed the same button over and over again. "It was on full when I got here. What the hell?" Toushiko could only watch in silence as her friend darted around the place, holding the device as if offering it to some kind of god. "There!" she said, freezing completely. "Glad this thing is solar-powered."

Mirai stared awkwardly at her friend while still maintaining the position. "I'll... uh... use this to get us some transportation... Any second now..."

Toushiko slowly raised an eyebrow as she watched her friend hold the strange device in the air, apparently in prayer. It wasn't the first time she'd ever seen Mirai messing with one of those weird techy gadgets of hers, but they never failed to utterly mystify her, especially when they appeared to be doing...nothing.

"Riiiiight..." She glanced behind her, toward the setting sun. "Y'know, if ya wanna stay here for the night, we can. No need fer ya to try an' save face by messin' around with...eh..." She trailed off, waving her hand vaguely at the device. "Whatever it is you're...tryin'...to do..."

Mirai placed the device next to her ear, a faint beeping could be heard coming from it.  "I'm not saving face you-" the merchant cut herself mid-sentence as the beeping stopped. "Hello! Yes, I am calling you... Why would you ask that? Of course I want one!"

The green-haired girl remained silent for a couple of minutes, a buzzing sound constantly streaming from the phone. "Yeah, yeah, I have no idea what you said. Just send it to my coordinates." the noise was gone. "Thank you!"

With another beep, she put the device back into her pocket. "And now we wait. Shouldn't take too long." Mirai turned to her friend. "You're gonna need one of those too. Or at least an earpiece."

Toushiko stared blankly at Mirai. "...I'm gonna need a what?" She shook her head, raising her hands defensively. "C'mon, Mirai, you know I don't, uh...I don't really do...'tech'." She shrugged. "At least, not the kind I've seen you use."

The oni looked back outside, a hint of longing in her expression. "Are ya sure I can't just travel on foot?" she asked uncertainly. "I'm sure I could keep up if I ran fast enough, or...somethin'. No need to mess around with your crazy stuff."

"Yet you do teleport crystals." she raised one eyebrow. "I know you're strong, but don't you feel the least bit tired?" she said. "And besides, where exactly did you plan on going? Knowing you, probably nowhere in particular."

A roaring noise could be heard from outside, becoming louder and louder as what Mirai called approached them. "Let me make it up to you, Toush." she said, grabbing the oni's hand and leading her out of the shack.

Toushiko's and Mirai's eyes widened in confusion and excitement, respectively. Before them lied a metallic vehicle shaped much like a cone, with a dark glass window that made it near-impossible to see inside. Jets of flame were coming out from below, keeping its relatively light frame afloat. From all the noise it made, its small size no doubt came as a surprise.

"We're going to pay our friend Jack a visit."

Even as Mirai led her out of the shack, Toushiko scoffed defensively. "At least the crystals don't have a million freakin' buttons on 'em," she muttered. "Can't even figure out what I'm lookin' at, much less...use..." She trailed off as the...metallic thing came into view.

The oni gaped at the living marvel of technology floating above the ground in front of her. "What in the nine Hells is that?!" she exclaimed, eyes wide. It was like nothing she'd ever seen before, even in all her past encounters with Mirai. "You called that here?!"

The oni took a step closer, as if in disbelief of what she was looking at. She held her hand forward, feeling the intense heat of the flames radiating against her palm, and found herself at a loss for words. "W-well, I...uh..." She looked back and forth between Mirai and the twin pillars of fire coming from the vehicle. "I...think I like this one, actually," she said, her gaze settling back on the fire. "Makes me think a' home." She chuckled, and turned back toward Mirai. "Never knew ya had somethin' so Underworld-inspired sittin' in your treasure trove a' goodies!"

Crossing her arms, she looked once more over the metal thing before turning to look down at Mirai. "So, uh...how do we use it?"

"No, no, Toush, get away from there!" the merchant pulled her away to make space for the ship to land.

The flames slowly faded away as it approached the ground level, until completely disappearing. Having stopped fully, a chunk of it slid itself open, revealing a small interior. Two seats could be spotted even from outside… they were small, exactly fitting a normal person, much to Toushiko's dismay.

Another door opened, this time upwards. It was the front door to the windowed chamber. A man wearing a white helmet reared his head out. "Get in, Miss President." his voice sounded stiff, annoyed even. The pilot's eyes traced towards the crimson woman. "I'm not even gonna ask." he noticed Mirai holding her hand. "Let's get this over with."

The man closed his door and waited for them to get in. Mirai easily slipped inside, already placing herself in a seat. Toushiko however…

"You've really outgrown doors, haven't you?" she chuckled and helped the oni inside. The big woman barely fit inside the vehicle, and most definitely not on such a tiny seat.

Mirai pulled out some tightly wrapped bars of what looked like chocolate and began eating one of them. "Those are really filling. Here, have some." she tossed some bars at the demoness who was awkwardly trying to find a place in this metal cage, hitting her square in the face.

"Where are we going?" called the pilot, already making the ship take off.

"I'll send you the coordinates." she walked inside the cabin, pressing some buttons on the on-board computer, mumbling something to herself. "I better call Jack…"

Toushiko was still struggling to fit her bulky frame into the ship when the chocolate bars smacked her right in the face, earning Mirai an unamused glare. "Real funny, Mirai," she deadpanned. "Pickin' on the oni when she can't fight back. I can barely even move my arms, for cryin' out loud!"

She eyed the chocolate bars lying by her feet for a moment, before sighing and giving up on the idea of actually reaching them. "We're lucky my horns ain't pokin' holes in the ceiling," she grumbled. "Much less my club..."

The oni kept fidgeting around, trying to find the least uncomfortable position she could take inside the tiny area she had to work with. This was gonna be a long trip...

The ship flew off into the sunset, towards their next destination: one of the biggest cities in the main land. It was known for being surrounded by a forest almost as large as itself and also for being a great hub of information. Right now, information is what they needed the most and a certain barkeep owed them quite the favor.

Perhaps this was not the adventure Toushiko hoped for, but they say variety is the spice of life - and the oni was always known to try new things. However, if there was one thing she was absolutely sure of, was that the slime would get what was coming for it, no matter how far it ran.



Meanwhile in Westland...

"Move it." a suited man ordered, pushing him around.

"Hands off, you dumb shit!" he spat while still complying with the order.

But what could he do? He was surrounded and any one of those enforcers would break him in half if he tried anything, not that he needed to. His body was horribly out of shape, so he couldn't outrun anyone even if he had a clear way out. Again, not that he needed to, considering where he was being taken.

Walking to the top floor was getting real tiresome, but nothing compared to walking for hours on end just to get back into Westland territory and use a fucking car. He was pissed, royally so. But what he did not realize was just how small of a position he had now.

Going up another set of stairs, they arrived at the top floor. The escorting guards shoved him one more time towards a wooden door. 'Vice President' read on the sign above.  Inside, the man was greeted with a beautiful view of the district, courtesy of a large transparent-glass window. Standing between him and the window was a tall man with gray hair and bags under his eyes. He was dressed in an immaculate black suit and had a hunchback, likely due to his old age.

"There you are, Samuel." the old man stood next to his clean, organized desk, facing the entrance directly. "I cannot say I expected you." he eyed the guards. "Not being presented to me like this."

"Your fucking goons swept me up!" he yelled. "How the fuck were you not expecting me?"

The Vice President closed his eyes briefly, his tone was grave. "I do not recommend further addressing me in such a manner, Samuel. If you value the future where we continue to cooperate, that is."

"Then why'd you do it?" Sam tried to contain his anger. "Why'd you send those gorillas after me?"

"That was not my will, Samuel, but the President's." he sighed in resignation. "You did not happen to attempt any underhanded behavior with her, did you?"

"The fuck?" the angry man roared. "The commercial girl is the fucking President?"

"You did not answer my question."

The man recalled Mirai coming over with the offer to buy his enterprise, which was only a little shop in the middle of fucking nowhere, but the girl offered money, and lots of it too. Of course, who would be stupid enough to actually hand their plans over to this mascot?

"I didn't know who she was. So I thought me and the boys could just make some quick cash while we wait for-"

"You idiot!" the Vice President yelled, silencing Sam. He already knew the rest; Mirai called the Company and had his business forcefully taken over as a response. "You had one job."

"Just send me back! Clear this whole shit up!"

The Vice President clenched his fist, trembling with anger. "Our contact will call in any minute now." he continued. "It's much too late to clean up your mess. If that drink does not end up with our contact by the end of today, consider yourself removed from the Company's future."

With the press of a button, two guards barged in and apprehended the merchant. "No, no, you can't do this! You gave your word!"

"And you yours." the elder waved his hand, ordering the guards to remove Sam from his office.

The old man returned to his desk and picked and with hesitation, picked up the phone and started forming a number. This would not end well.

Day 3

Golden light shone through the dusty curtains, softly illuminating the room. The furnishings were modest, fit for the inn's purpose: a place for weary travelers to take a brief rest, warm themselves with food and drink, and continue on their way.

The room's two current occupants were no different. One bed held a woman, sleeping soundly under the blankets, and the other held a demoness, snoring loudly with her legs dangling off the side of her too-small mattress.

Surprisingly, it was the latter who woke up first, her rumbling snores having seemingly no effect on her partner's peaceful sleep. The oni's body stirred with an abrupt snort, and her eyes blinked blearily as she slowly came back into consciousness. As soon as her eyes opened, the sunlight hit them directly, and she shielded them with her hand, grunting in annoyance.

Damn it, why's it gotta be daytime already...? This had never been a problem in the Underworld, where there was no sun to brightly announce that you had to get up now. After contorting her spine to fit inside that damned vehicle of Mirai's, she'd have loved nothing more than to get some more rest on this soft mattress. She laid her head back on the pillow, and was about to do just that when the memory of that slime passed through her mind.

Toushiko's eyes snapped open. That's right, she couldn't afford to laze around, she had a job to do. With newfound energy, she threw the blanket off of her and climbed out of bed, intent on shaking Mirai if she wasn't already awake.
