Unknown Location, Dawn
When the man had finally come to his senses, Honami shook her head. At least someone here was focused on getting out of wherever the hell they were, even if Honami was likely to crawl back into her bed whenever this whole ordeal was dealt with.
"The quicker we get back home, the quicker I can go back to bed and forget all about this like it was just a passing dream..." Honami mumbled as she grabbed her school bag and began to follow Hiroko without a thought to if Kaito would follow or not. She wasn't about to play babysitter for some guy who was clearly older than her, therefore it was Kaito's loss if he wanted to keep admiring the forest rather than following the two girls back to civilization.
By the time the group reached the torii, Honami frowned as her eyes glanced over the two statues. They were undoubtedly foreign, with writing that she, or likely anyone else, could read. However, as the clock ticked by, the foreign letters began to make sense, leaving Honami all the more confused. How could anyone possibly understand a language she's never heard of or seen, but understand it within a blink of an eye? Surely, this had to have been some weird lucid dream. Her brain was simply playing tricks on Honami while she laid in bed, unable to wake herself up from whatever this dream was or will be.
A loud echo bounced among the mountains and trees, as if thunder had just rolled in. Yet, when Honami glanced up at the sky, there was no sort of clouds or any bad weather nearby. Still, the trees shook and a gust had blown past the group, fluttering the edges of Honami's skirt and Hiroko's coat before the wind came to a sudden stop. "Just our luck. First, we find ourselves in a forest, and now? Freak weather." Honami uttered with a sigh. If anything, she hoped her umbrella was still in her school bag.
