Today, a typical high school girl and one of the many typical shrinegoers today, was hungry. In fact, as soon as she heard the howling of an old man from his takoyaki stall and the ringing of his chimes, the girl was quick to rush in and be his first customer for the day. The stall looked freshly set up, and the takoyaki on display presented itself palatably.
Without further ado, the girl quickly handed out a 500 yen coin for 3 takoyaki, priced at 100 yen. The old man handed out a 400 yen change through 4 100 yen coins, and the girl left to enjoy the sumptuous taste of her snack.
Finishing her meal, the girl peeked at her wallet to figure the amount of donations she would give today, only to find out the old man hadn't given her 400 yen. He gave her 4 yen.
Outraged, the girl quickly hurried back to where the stall was, but alas, the old man and his cart was gone.
At least the takoyaki was worth it.
496 yen-- swindled! Just one of the many jackpots Rumi Amano's luck leads her to. The foxgirl, strolling behind the bushes, took another bite from one of her takoyaki in her bag, actually a buy from a stall somewhere else in the festival markets.
It sure was a busy day. Now was a good time to take a nap. The drowsy kitsune laid herself to sleep at the bushes just beside the shrine, a place rarely tread upon by visitors.
Rumi woke up later to an odd noise not far from where she was. The red skies, however, immediately caught her sight before she could catch wind of where the sounds were coming from. Though definitely an unnerving sight, the fox girl oddly found herself comfortable with the environs, and she had laid for a little while to enjoy the view before she could actually proceed to the source of the noise.
A giant skeleton and a bunch of kids were having a ruckus.
"What the goddamn!? Can't a lady take her beauty nap in peace here!?"
The masked lady, tails and ears out, emerged from the bushes, disgruntled with the racket.
