Next Afternoon. . . .
Okay we've been at it all day! So what's the plan Naru? said Monk
We need to find the demons weakness. What did you do when you extorcised it from the institute?
. . . Well Mai started the extorcism chant. . then the what we thought was an entity. Some how it became stronger and blasted Mai with dark energy. So Mai threw that surge of white light that you saw when she saved the girls.
By the way. How is Mai?
She is still asleep
But it's been about 20 hour's! said John
She needs the rest. Even though Mai has control of her abilities, they are still growing. . . Her abilities drain her immensely. . she needs to rest her body in order to function.
Can't you do that recharge thing you did before Naru?
No. . . Mai and I may be able to recharge each other, but its too soon. . .and she needs to be conscious in order for her to control the surge. I can over do it and it could end up costing her life.
I guess all we can do is wait. Is Yasu still with her?
Yes. . .
Good thing Lin's shikigami are protecting Mai. . . he truly has a soft spot for her said Ayako
We need to keep on searching. for Miss. Hara. . have you found any traces left by the demon.
John and I searched the entire house. . .there was no sign of either .
I serch the entire outer area thee was no disturbance.
SILENCE. . . . . . . . . . . . ..
That is because they are no longer here."
Mai! Welcome back kiddo!. . . .What do you mean that their not here?
Masako is not here. . .she is some place dark. . .some place under ground. . .
Do you know where?
No. . . . but it some how. . it feels familiar. . .I really don't know. .
It's okay Mai, don't over do it. . you still look pale. . come have a seat love.
I know you are concern Yasu but I am alright. . .I just need to find Masako. . .she is in danger because of me. . .I can'tlet her down.
