It's the best she's able to do to hide the young girl. I look over to Mom to gauge her reaction as to what just happened. Seconds ago that young girl who is covered with only a thin piece of fabric was a hulking monstrosity. This seems to be happening with a lot of the monsters you've seen today. "Mom-" I look at her face, but she seems confused as well. "Why does that keep happening?"I am Itsukuma Masami, and I did it. I rescued Mom from this awful place known as Fortune. At least, I think I"ve rescued her. We're both kind of trapped on the ground floor. The exit is sealed shut.Right now, since we have a minute, I want to see what Mom thinks about everything turning into people. Monsters, cards, all of it."I guess.." Mom stops and thinks about it for a moment. "I guess the Chairman's ring wore off faster than I expected. ""Hmm?""Monsters, and a lot of other things, are made of pieces of trapped emotions." She rubs her chin.You remember her telling you this at one time, that's how monsters were made.But I'm not really getting it. "So- what does that mean? How are they turning into people?" "It's because Monsters are made from pieces of emotions, but when one of them experiences every emotion a human can have; their bodies might assume a human form. The chairman's ring was supposed to prevent that, but I guess its power is waning.">It was supposed tp PREVENT that from happening? Why would he not want that to happen?>Is that how.. I was made? You were made? Kaori, too?>Tell her about Julie, gauge her reaction.>Tell her your cards have been turning into people one by one.>Tell her that everyone came by to help and they're waiting outside, maybe we should think about escaping>Ask her how many children she wants to adopt.>Other?

>Lots of things! Oh no!Writing! I probably won't get all of it answered before I have to leave and drive home, but we'll see.
Something seems really wrong with this!"That ring was supposed to PREVENT that from happening!? Why would he want that!?" After all, now they can hug and be hugged, why would he wants monsters over that!?She ruffles my hair, "There were already a lot of monsters made by the time he received the ring. The chairman probably didn't want to have to deal with a bunch of kids, he never liked kids, and the monsters were grown-up enough to fend for themselves and follow his orders." That's an awful reason!"Don't worry about it, though. Isn't this a great thing?" She's beaming. "Mom, is that how I was made? And Kaori? And you?" She gently squeezes my shoulder. "I was definitely made that way. I'm not sure about Kaori. But you were made a little differently. I'll tell you about it when we have a little more time. That's understandable. "Julie, can you bring that girl over here?" "Mom, how many kids were you wanting to adopt, anyway?" "I'll take in anyone who needs a home. I know how it's like not having one." "Well." I stand up and wrap my arms around Julie. "She needs one, and so does this girl! I know a boy and a girl who need one, too! ""Um." Mom thinks about it for a minute. "I still mean it, even if I'll need a bigger house."Mom grabs Julie's hand, "What is your name?" "Julie, I'm Masami's best friend!" What?"Mom" I try to change the subject, "This is the same Julie that was one of my cards!" "Oh, so it happened to you too." Mom seems oddly unsurprised. "It's true!" Julie crosses her arms."She's not the only one who has transformed, I had an invisible card too, and-" I suddenly remember."HARUKO! She went missing!" "Oh? where?" "Near the mansion! We gotta-" "We should get out of here, first." Julie corrects me. What should I do?>Complain to Mom about Haruko anyway>She's right, find a way out. >No no, another question! This is important! >>Like: How do we beat Asai?>>Or: Do we just leave Fortune and never look back?>Other?
And with that, I drive home.Thread resumes in an hour or two!

>>40242872>Complain.>How beat Asai?

>Complain to mom about Haruko anyway!>Ask another question! Like how to beat Asai!Writing!
"But MOOM! Haruko is MISSING!" I pout. Julie slaps her head with her palm. "I'm sure it'll be fine, Sweetie. I think I-" "She's missing though!" I can't just forget about it now! I already remembered! "Besides! There are other important things we have to talk about! Like." Like."Like how do we beat Asai? He's been doing really weird stuff and I don't know how to fight it!""Wait!" Mom stops me immediately."You're FIGHTING Asai!?" "Yes! I was fighti-" She immediately grabs my arm and bolts to her feet."We have to get out of here! Right now!" "Why?! What's wrong? He's a jerk and needs to pay for-" "You don't understand! He can't be beaten when he's inside of this building! It was made specially for him!" Wait, Fortune HQ was made specifically so Asai could do all this crazy stuff? "But I was doing really good against him!" Mom doesn't care about that, right now. "We need to leave! I don't know where he is right now, but he might not know we're down here, yet!" There's still the barrier in front of the door to take care of. >Want to try something else to knock it down?>Maybe you're going about it the wrong way, try going to another floor and hopping out >Or maybe see if anyone else has something in mind>Other?

Mom stands up and walks over to the wall, she takes a card out of her blouse and says a few words under her breath. A few seconds pass, and nothing changes."Hmm." She says, knocking her hand against the barrier guarding the door. I step up with Belle, and swing her sword like a baseball bat. It clanks once again against the steely fortification. "Huh." I step back. "I'll let someone else handle this!" "Step aside." Julie cracks her knuckles as she gathers a really powerful burst of energy onto the blade of her sword.She swings it straight at the column, and it makes a significant gash, but doesn't shatter it like she was expecting."Hmm." The blue-haired girl wrapped in a tablecloth sighs. She pulls it closer to herself as she stands up. "You're doing it all wrong. Asai put that barrier there, so only he can take it down." Her arms cross, letting the fabric slide off her shoulders slightly. "So what do we do?" I ask her, before quickly putting the cloth back onto her and tying it in a knot so no one can look. "The bathrooms. You can get out of the windows there. I was going to slip out earlier, but my armor was too big to fit through." "Well come on!" I grab her hand, Julie helps Mom up. "Let's go! ""I'm not leaving." The girl sits down."W-WHAT?!" "I'm not leaving. I changed my mind." She tilts her head upward. "I'm still a secretary, and I'm still this building's servant. Even if I'm just a kid now or not." >You have to come along! You're not anyone's 'servant'!>Fine, bye.>Try to force her to come along anyway>MOOM SAY SOMETHING ABOUT THIS! >Other?
>>40248220>MOOM SAY SOMETHING ABOUT THIS!
>>40248220>You have to come along! You're not anyone's 'servant'!>You take a vacation or something like that>MOOM SAY SOMETHING ABOUT THIS!
>>40248220>You have to come along! You're not anyone's 'servant'!With that I say goodnight!

>>40248450Good night!>You have to come along! You're not anyone's 'servant'!>>MOOM SAY SOMETHING ABOUT THIS!Writing last post of the night, apologies in advance!
I grab onto her arm, something seems very wrong with that! "You have to come along! You're not someone's 'servant'! You're a person now, not a monster!" She snatches her arm away, cradling herself in the tablecloth. "I'm still Fortune's secretary. This building is still my home. Sorry to tell you this, but thinking everyone should have a big happy family is naive." "B-but!" I stop and think about this, who would NOT want a big, happy family?"But you're no use to Fortune anymore! You can't defend the place, and Asai probably doesn't want you around if you can't do that! Why wouldn't you just-" "That's for him to decide!" She snaps, further wrapping herself in the linen. "I'm not going to run away just because I've changed a little. I still have a duty to fulfill until he decides I'm no longer useful to him." No longer useful!? What does she think she's supposed to be! "But you're a little girl now!" "I'm still Fortune's secretary." She turns away from me, tying another knot in her makeshift dress."But!" I think about what she said for a minute, "Moom! Say something about this!"Julie looks worried, Mom sighs and puts a hand on my shoulder."Let's go, Masami." "But-!" "Masami, I know you feel very strongly about this, but it's her decision. If she feels she belongs to Fortune, then you can't take her away from this place."This feels REALLY unfair. Mom leads me into the woman's restroom. There's a single vertical window raised way up high that is only protected by a sheet of glass. It's pretty thin, but I could make it pretty easily. Julie slashes the window into splinters which fade away. She hopes up and waits on the ledge.I'm almost on the wall before I look back, and notice that Mom is hesitating. "Um, Mom?" "Err, Sweetie. I don't think I can fit through." "You don't?! Why?!""I think I'm too..." She puts her hands in front of her chest "gifted to fit through that window." Gifted? What is that supposed to mean? >Thread End
