Okay, okay. I can't panic. I'm at the mercy of a human-eating youkai, trapped in the middle of a forest somewhere in Gensokyo. I can get myself out of this, probably, maybe. I've been in tighter spots... somewhere. I know what to do, though. I do what any sane person would do. I crawl over to her and grovel.

"Please don't eat me! Please! I'll taste bad! I don't take in enough nutrients! Have you ever eaten elderly chicken? I'm like that!" I'm lightly tugging at the hem of Rumia's dress, even managing some not-entirely-false tears. She laughs.

"Is that so!"
