Ditto. Hang out with Mire and see if we get to play a minigame of practicing guitar.

There's one spot in the woods kids would go to and dump a bunch of stuff like an old couch, a mannequin, a bathtub, a basketball net stapled to a tree, and a bb gun range with random cans and shit for target practice.

Call her Marshmellow and ruin your entire relationship.

And go investigate the crop circles. One of you acts masculine yet wide-eyed, the other acts femenine yet skeptic.

Seems we're torn between guitar and crop circles. In the interest of avoiding being driven anywhere by a drunk person, I vote learning the guitar without going anywhere - it's possible that Swamp is some kind of consequence Houdini who never dies, but no promises are made for anyone in her proximity.

"Pretty sure those laws are about not being inebriated while driving. I got beer at home, so no need for us to go anywhere else."

>Chill out by the lake and get some guitar lesson
Sounds like a fine afternoon to me!
"Hey Mire, feel like chilling out by the lake and teaching me to play some guitar? There'll be snacks with the booze of course, courtesy of yours truly."
>"Now we're talking. I've got my guitar with me, meaning we're all set. By the time the day is over, we'll both be playing Classical Gas like it's nobody's business."
"Know any good spots by the lake?"
>"Of course. There's a place with all sorts of junk and furniture we can mess around with. We can shoot empty cans and bottles with the old twenty-two. There's also a secret fishing dock around there, I got my rods with me in case you're keen for a cast."

>Ask if Mire is up for driving you out to look at those crop circles, maybe pick up Nifa on the way.
"Hey Mire, think we can head over to the crop circles after we visit the lake?"
>"Sure. I've been wondering what those are about myself. Don't forget the beer because if we get kidnapped by aliens, I won't be able to fight them all off while sober."
"Think we can bring Nifa along? the supernatural seems right up her alley."
>"Do we have to? The smell she left behind after riding in here last time still lingers. Even the air fresheners I got don’t cover it fully..."
"Pretty please?"
>"Fine, whatever. As long as she sits in the back and keeps her hands to herself."

>Call her Marshmallow and ruin your entire relationship.
"Marshmallow."
>"Ok you can go back to calling me Mire. See you soon."

The call ends and I go to pack by things for the trip. I put my guitar in its case, and I back a backpack with the essentials. After I'm ready I say my goodbyes to my family and head to the road outside my property. Standing outside, I admire the atmosphere.

>Yeah, don't go riding with her if she's been drinking
I'm not worried about Mire being drunk. She's no lightweight that can get drunk off a single beer. Also, even if we crashed, her tank of a truck will keep us safe... even if seatbelts and mirrors didn't come with it at the time of its production.

>Sick, lets the raise the dead while under the influence.
Now that's an idea. We can get the undead drunk too while we're at it.

>Have there been disappearances?
Not as of recent. I heard a story or two of someone going missing a decade ago, I’d be surprised if we found them all this time later, but It’d certainly make for a fun story.

>Summon demon, sleep paralysis demon even... Maybe hot? Always a gamble
Hot demons? Seems like the kind of thing Nifa would try to summon. She reads books with hot vampires and werewolves; demons don’t seem too far removed.

>>but we don't talk about those.
>Let’s talk about those...
Let’s not! people act so out of character if I ever try to bring it up.

I'm standing by the road and the fact that I'm back where I started hits me. I'm bored again. What should I do in the ten or so minutes it takes for Mire to get here? Call up someone else? Talk to a random stranger that passes by? Do a cartwheel?

The place where you live truly looks beautiful and the nature nature all around your house is like something from a ferry tale. But I am just wondering has in your town been cases of people disappearing? Never let your guard down, you don't want to be caught like a deer in a headlights.

Huh. So, the problem's just with discussing the supernatural with other people, huh? Ever consider the idea that it's a personal subject for them? Like they might be involved in one or more of the supernatural goings-on around these parts?

Even if you can't talk about it with other people, there's nothing stopping you from sharing what you do know of it with us, right? There's a lot of weirdness up here, but being judged for thought-crimes ain't one of them, I imagine.

Also, who's the cute bnnuy boi behind you?

>Think about that hot tanuki girl with a rack that would fit in a department store.
I didn't know raccoons could have antlers. I don't personally know of any...

>Never let your guard down, you don't want to be caught like a deer in a headlight.
The worst kind of situation to be for someone like me. I always freeze up in tense situations.

>Also isn’t your house in the middle of the woods with the closest neighbour being over half a mile away?
Our neighbours aren't too far away from each other, but most houses are built a fair distance from the road. That being said it's common to see people taking walks on the footpath in the morning, especially on days like this.

>Consider the idea that you’re the only person not in on the secret regarding weird forest cryptids and be annoyed at the subject.
Is there some big secret I'm being excluded from knowing? I just assumed the subject made everyone uncomfortable. I’d be lying if I say I wasn’t at least a bit intrigued.

>the problem's just with discussing the supernatural with other people, huh? Ever consider the idea that it's a personal subject for them? Like they might be involved in one or more of the supernatural goings-on around these parts?
I've got no doubt that most people have a personal experience or two with strange things. I myself have seen weird stuff, sometimes with others present. When I ask about it, they just say they don't want to talk about it or just straight up pretend they didn't see anything.

>I dunno, can you do a cartwheel?
With ease! I do one but nobody was around to see it. What a shame.

>Talk to the rabbit neighbour
Oh. I'm not sure who that is, there's no one who lives around here that looks like that. Must be a stranger, which isn't a problem. It's refreshing to meet new people from time to time.

"Howdy! Have we met? I don't recall seeing you around here before."

The rabbit turns around

>"Hazel? Is that you? Ha! Long-time no see!"

No.

Oh no no no.

It's... her. An overwhelming sense of dread washes over me.

>"I almost didn't recognize you!"
"H-hey... Koara... Didn't know you were out..."
>"Eeeyup! I learned a lot during those six months! Now I'm out and I got a really chill parole officer and an annoying beeping foot bracelet."
"I hope jail wasn't... all bad..."
>"Not jail - Prison! There's a big difference, but still eerily similar to our old high school - just with a lot more violence! I made a lot of friends there that I'm starting to miss... committing another crime to get back in is starting to seem a little tempting... but enough about me! How are you doing? Is this your house here?"
"I-I uh... no. I live... far away."
>"That's a shame. Here, let's hug and catch up! Also, can I borrow twenty bucks?"

She reaches her hand out for a shake. I then notice something under her sleeve. Is that...? no. abort. I repeat, abort! I need to find a way to disengage from this interaction immediately.

quick, trip over your gaiter to avoid shaking her hand and then act all embarrassed about it and quickly try to change the subject of you tripping over yourself and ask what her plans are now that she's out.

Also was she your high school bully or something?

Do not hug, that looks like a great way to lose your wallet.
And don't panic, Mire is on her way, she will probably be here soon. Well, she will probably be here at some point, anyway.

Do you have a taser or paper spray? Or are they even legal to possess in your town? If the answer to both of them is yes mentally remind yourself how to use it. Just in case, also why saw she in prison?!
>>
No. 1049925 ID: 36d2e1

Reflect on the nature of your dread involving this woman whose life of crime has taken her to darker places than Mire - and the thing up her sleeve that got you so spooked.

... as you stumble backwards, almost fall, swing around and end up barely saving your beerpack and guitar from disaster, if not your butt.

That’d be one way to avoid a hug...

>No matter what you do, don't mention the suit
Mention the suit? I don't even want to think about the suit!

>was she your high school bully or something?
Nothing like that. I just don't gel well with those that lack filters or boundaries!

>Do you have a taser or paper spray?
I've never had a reason to carry either of those, we live in a pretty safe town. Worse that ever happens is the occasional trash fire.

>Run
The idea of moving away from her is favourable but doing so too quickly may prove risky. Her legs are much longer than mine, it'd be best to go at a brisk pace where it doesn’t seem like I’m trying to escape her instead.

>why was she in prison?!
I don't know, nobody does! One person says it was second-degree arson, another says possession of illicit substances, another says indecent exposure. I'm kinda leaning more towards that last one.

>Do not hug, that looks like a great way to lose your wallet.
that's what I'm afraid of. I need to find a way to avoid it.

To avoid shaking hands (or hugging), I pretend to clumsily stumble over my guitar case. She takes a step back to allow me to recompose.
>"You alright?"
"Yep - I'm fine. What were we discussing again?'
>"I forgot..." phew!

I take my guitar out of its case and start to pluck a few strings to calm me down.
>"Sounds nice. Do you take requests?"
"Sorry. I'm not that good."
>"Ah. Keep at it and you'll get there some day. Everyone starts somewhere, y'know? My first batch of toilet wine was nothing to ride home about, but I improved."
"...I appreciate the sentiment." even if it's totally gross.

>Call Mire, tell her to book it.
I take my phone out and message Mire inconspicuously
'Floor it. Koara is here. She is wearing the Koara suit.'
>'on it.'

>Tell her you gotta go, you're late for a gig.
"Ah, I just remembered. I gotta go. Late for a gig." I try to walk away.
>"You play in a band? Sweet! Mind if I see you play?"
"I don't think our music is your thing. It's uh... classical. With violins and stuff."
>"Never mind then."
"don't you have plans of your own?"
>"I was planning on going to the thrift store actually. To buy clothes. Hence why I asked for the money. Since my folks moved south to become trolls, I'm here crashing at a friend's place. This jacket I'm wearing is borrowed from said friend, so you'll never believe what I'm wearing underneath."
"..."
>"It's the same thing I was wearing at the time of my incarceration!"
"Would it be rude to ask what that was about?"
>"I like to keep people guessing. Wanna know what the best part about being a convicted felon is? You don't gotta worry about going out to vote!"

We talk as we walk. It's really not all that bad. She's strange, but not completely intolerable. I still enjoy the company on this nice day.

After a moment, something breaks the tranquil silence as I hear a voice coming towards us.
>"Watch out Hazel! T-the brakes are no good!"

It sounds like Koara's a streaker. A birthday suit-er. A newdist. Both voluntarily and involuntarily, atm.

Maybe you should just take her to the thrift store and get her some gear. For peace of mind.

>Watch out!
Fail to watch out as you freeze in a panic. Get rescued by Koara, in a very... Koara way.

Oooh, girl, you're a dick! Well, joking about your past aside, you actually are kind of being a dick to her right now. She just got out of Prison. Wait, six months? Even with Parole, I don't think she can't be a felon! Minimum Sentence for a Felony is a year! Unless, covid circumstances?
