"M-Mom." "Yes, Sweetie?" "M-Maybe you should calm down. Just- a little." "I'm fine!"She says as she counts the number of throwing knives hidden inside her outfit. There's ten, twenty, uh oh, I lost count.I am Itsukuma Masami. Oh today hasn't been going well at all. It's the last day before Asai is freed from the magic bubble his building was imprisoned in. He can already leave as it is, but he seems to be using the entirety of Fortune HQ as a weapon.That's scary. The building must weigh tens of thousands of tons. That's okay, though. We're gonna turn Asai into a human, and that will keep him from the building as a giant weapon.I hope! Unknown to me, Asai had his henchman come to my house and took Cirrus from the garden where she was sleeping! Now I'm angry and worried!I'm also worried about Mom, because she's acting all scary."D-do you really think you need throwing knives?" "Well, it's just in case. Anyway, I'm about ready." "Y-yeah, hold on." I open the door to my room once more to find Julie and Haruko, fully dressed this time."Thank god, Mom is getting kind of scary. I need help stalling her until the principal gets here.""I can do it as long as Julie doesn't get in my way." The blue one says."No! It's Haruko who always gets in my way!" The red one says. "..Are you two wearing each others clothes?!" I exclaim."No! She's wearing my clothes but wouldn't listen!" "I'm only wearing your clothes because you're wearing MY clothes!" I wish I could see the look on my own face right now."GET DRESSED YOU TWO!" I yell before slamming the door. "Mm, they're not ready. Let's go without them. Are you ready to go Sweetie?" "Mom, uh, wait!-"How do I stall, how do I stall!?>Hold on! We should go with them, they're strong!>J-just a few more minutes! >I think you should calm down a bit before you go! >The principal is coming too! He'll be here in a minute! >F-forget it, let's go.>Other?

I'm still here, chores have come upNext post soon.
"Hold on!" I put my hands up, waving her off. "Wait wait wait wait, We should go with Julie and Haruko! They're really strong! Plus I don't have their strength in card form anymore!" "Oh sweetie, you're plenty strong enough!" I don't like that sinister smile, even now."Besides, you have Belle. That's plenty of strength.""Y-yeah, but. Um. What's the plan once we have Belle?""Well, I was going to break in, you use Cirrus' card to recall her back, then you can leave!"I feel a heavy weight leave my chest, "Oh, that's it? Whew.. I was worried you were going to-" "-Then I'm going to kill Asai. That's obviously going to happen." Oh no! There it is back again! "Uh, um, just a few more minutes. Is that okay, Mom?" "Sweetie, every minute we wait is another minute Asai could be doing something to her. Let's go now." "No! Wait-!"Not thinking about any kind of follow-through, I run over and squeeze Mom tightly. "W-wait! I'm worried about you Mom! I love you and I really don't want to see you fight Asai for real! He could really hurt you!" She rubs my hair, I can hear her heartbeat settle down some."That's sweet, Masami. You're such a good girl." "T-thank you.""I'm still going to kill Asai, though."That didn't do anything at all! "Wait wait wait wait wait wai-"Suddenly, doorbell. "Thank you god!" I squeak before hopping over to the door. I open it to see--To see Julie, naked except for her panties. Why is she naked, and standing in the front yard? "Masamiiii, Haruko pushed me out of the room and locked the window behind me!" I grab her, and pull her inside. Just then, I see a car pull up from the road. Hopefully it's the principal and not some weird pervert. >Stay here and stall Mom some more, with Julie's help.>No! Follow Julie to your room and FORCE them to get dressed the right way.>Julie, GET DRESSED! NOW! >Run out and meet the principal, I'm scared! >Other?
>>42016390>>No! Follow Julie to your room and FORCE them to get dressed the right way.>>Julie, GET DRESSED! NOW!

>>42017347Thanks for playing.
"Darn you..." I clench my fist. "You're going to punish her, right!?" I look over toward Mom, "I need to help her get dressed, the principal is here to see you. Can you have a calm talk with him before you run off and hurt things?" "I suppose I can.." She seems almost saddened by that. I push Julie's back until she's at the doorway. I swing the door open and push her inside. Then I slam it behind me and lock it.Inside, Haruko is looking extremely guilty. Like she knows that Julie has tattled on her. "You TWOOO-" "She started it!" "No! She started it!" "I don't care who started it! Both you are getting dressed, and I'm going to watch just to make sure you do it right this time!" I grab Julie's undershirt, and with a quick motion I fit it over her head. Haruko starts lazily slipping her own clothes on. Meanwhile, I can hear talking coming from the living room."..Izumi, you're panicking.""I'm acting! Isn't that what you always preach-" She cuts off as they cross to the other side of the room. I check back to see Haruko putting on her skirt, and her overshirt. I help Julie slip on her skirt just as she finishes buttoning her overshirt.There, everyone is dressed, except- "WAIT A MINUTE! I DIDN'T GET DRESSED!" I squeal."Oh.""Yeah, you are kind of wearing your bedclothes." "Umm! Umm! What do I wear!?" "Something stealthy!" "No! Something fierce!" "Why do I ask you two anything!?"--I walk out into the living room just as they've sat down to talk to Mom. "I know you're upset, we would all be upset. But we need to handle this calmly and with a purpose""I have a purpose, I'm going to kill Asai, and-""No, no killing. Please Izumi. Please.">Try to say something.>Nope! Principal has this!>This is bad. Mom may be as angry as ever.>Ask Julie and Haruko for a tag-team hug! >Other?

Everyone, sorry posts have been so slow tonight. I've been trying to fix a leak in my roof during a thunderstorm.
>>42018767Should probably prioritize that then!
>>42018803I have been, and I fixed it for now.But taping a bucket under the hole in my roof. I'll cool-seal it tomorrowNext post almost up.
No no, I shouldn't interrupt. The principal said that he has this. I am going to trust in the principal to defuse this problem. He's known her longer than I have, and I'm sure he's seen her angrier than this."-That's why I think taking your anger out on Asai is a bad idea.""I disagree. Asai has threatened my family too long, and now he has kidnapped a little girl. He's gone too far, he's going down." "Izumi, he will go down, in due time. But first, running in there like you're in control of the situation is what he wants. He wants you to do this." "Then he should also know I'm way stronger than he is." "-That's not the point! Izumi! Stop this right now.""No." If Mom is anything like me, telling her to stop is akin to telling her to keep going! I need to defuse this somehow. "Mom!" I appear from around the corner like I just left my room and was totally not eavesdropping. "I've been thinking about it, and I can't think of how what you want to do is any better than Marie's plan! You should really re-think that if you're making Marie seem sane!" "(What did she just say about my mother?)" I hear a voice from around the corner, behind me. Whoops. But, anyway."Sweetie, I'm starting to think we should have went with Marie's plan all along." "Marie kidnapped Aiko, Mom!" "That's different, Cirrus was kidnapped to intimidate us."Oh no, she's not playing that card with me."Julie! Haruko!" "Right behind you!"As if they know, they come up behind me. All three of us leap onto the couch where Mom is sitting. Our tiny arms constricting her as tightly as we can. The dreaded surprise group hug."Girls.." Mom whines as all three of us squeeze. "No! We don't permit you to go fight Asai! It was a bad idea when Marie wanted to, and it's a bad idea now!" "Masami. We don't have time to make more cards.">There has to be smarter ways than a frontal assault! >This is what he wants, Mom! >No.>Maybe stealth is the answer>Call Fortune right now!>Other?

>There has to be smarter ways than a frontal assault!>Maybe stealth is the answerWriting!Oh boy!
>>42020250But Masamis record sneaking into Fortune is pretty good!Optimism!
"Mom! Think about it! There has to be a smarter way than trying to assault Fortune HQ!" "There is, but it isn't a faster way." "She's right, though! Everything we've seen about Asai tells us that trying to fight him and his building head-on is a terrible idea!" Julie tugs on her arm."Yeah! And we can't get another you! We can get another Cirr-UMPH."I cup my hand over her mouth and nervously laugh. Then I continue. "What she means is- If we go in there and get in trouble, then no one is going to be coming to rescue us! Cirrus wants to be rescued, I'm sure, but she has all day to stay in Fortune. We only get to attack them one time." "T-that's right!" Julie tries to pick up the slack, "Besides, we don't even have a good attack plan yet! Something tells it wouldn't be as easy as break in and cuff him!" "I think we should try something stealthy, Mom! Something that he won't see coming!" She sighs, "What's the use, he knows everything that happens in that building. Being stealthy would never work."No, no. You don't get to do this with me."Mom!" I scold her, "Don't say things like that! We'll just have to lure him out of the building!" "And how would you do that? He never leaves. I think the parking lot was the first time I saw him leave that building in years." >Cause trouble in the parking lot! >Throw a party and not invite him! >Um.. Ummmm! >M-Make a card that drags him outside! >Other?
>>42021204>M-Make a card that drags him outside!I'm thinking about either a huge cannon to fuck up the building or some kind of harpoon/graber
>>42021204>>Um.. Ummmm! >>M-Make a card that drags him outside!
>>42021204>Um.. Ummmm! >M-Make a card that drags him outside!
>>42021204>M-Make a card that drags him outside!Cards are the answer, throw cards at the problem until it goes away!
>Um.. Ummmm! >M-Make a card that drags him outside!Writing last post of the night!
Umm, Ummmmmmmmmm! "W-we can get him to go outside! I mean, I could make a card that gets him outside!" "Mm hmm, what kind of card will that be?"Oh, I was hoping that she wouldn't ask that."H-How about a giant vacuum cleaner! We'll suck him outside!" "I don't think that's a good idea.""Maybe a... a giant monster! Yeah! Like Godzilla! Or King-" "No. Bad Masami, no making giant monsters." "Aww." "How about." Uh oh, Julie is thinking, "We try luring him out with you?" I bop Julie in the back of the head."Ow!" "No! What are you thinking!? We tried so hard to get her back and now you want to give her away!?" "Yeah, but- she's clearly okay in there! I mean. We got in several times before, right?!" "Julie.. I kind of like that idea." OH NO, Mom is thinking now, too! "Trade me for Cirrus, and then cuff Asai." "That's a terrible idea!" I cross my arms, "I'm against it!" "I think that's a hasty idea as well, Izumi." The principal adjusts his glasses. "What if he doesn't honor the trade? He knows that he's getting out in a day, anyway. So why does he need you at this point?""Well." Mom seems to look annoyed for some reason, "This has kind of been a secret of Asai's, but who cares at this point. He has a kind of 'crush' on me." The principal laughs, Julie and Haruko nearly jump out of their skin."He has a CRUSH!?" "Gross!" "-Well, sort of. I don't think he understands what it means, but the intent is there. Even if he tries to hide it. Which is why I think the chance of him hurting me is very low." "Mom! He engulfed you in fire last time! Then he tried to crush you with the building! Don't you realize this is a terrible assumption to make!?" She thinks about it for a second."I guess those were just mistakes. He didn't really mean them." "Huh, good point." The principal crosses his arms. Oh no! No one is smart, and everyone is trying to make plans! This is terrible! >Thread End
Thanks for the thread everyone. Sorry the update rate was so slow, but I wasn't expecting holes in the roof of my home.Next thread is tomorrow! Hopefully nothing interrupts it and it can start early. Until then, thanks to everyone for participating. Let me know what you thought!
>>42021787Thanks for running.
>>42021787thanks for runninghmm, I think I know what it would take to turn Asai human, but I kind of prefer the "cuff (and maybe kill)" option
>>42021787Thanks for the thread!I'd almost feel bad about manipulating Asai with emotions that he doesn't understand, if he weren't a huge jerk.>>42021765>"No. Bad Masami, no making giant monsters.">"Aww."I love everything about this exchange.
