DAUGHTER OF THE MOUNTAIN
Artist: Sun Lu - Song: Moonlit Sky
As the two walked over to where the commotion with the woman and the man at the counter, Kitarune realized that Hono had gotten the wrong ticket, wanting to get Tokyo instead of Minatumi, where she had ended up. Kitarune's eyes lit up at the mention of Tokyo, the capital of her home, but before she could say anything, Arianda had already started, and Kitarune quickly closed her mouth and stayed by her companion's side, squeezing her hand just a little bit tighter in annoyance.
But, as Arianda introduced her, Kitarune raised a hand to give Hono a gentle wave, returning the warm smile, though she quickly turned her focus to the, apparently, significantly more interesting ground. Not long after, Kitarune picked her head up, giving another warm smile before she lifted a finger to try and interject."Um, once you get to Tokyo, if you wanted, I could try and be a guide for you. I haven't been there in a long time, so it's probably really different compared to back then, but I'd still like to help any way I can."
The Archmage gave an awkward chuckle, rubbing the back of her neck as she paused for a moment. It was so strange to be in a regular conversation like this -- after so long, wandering the Wastelands, the world, and living in the Rukongai the way she did. It felt like it was an entirely different era, which, in a sense, it was. Yet, at the same time, there were still things that never changed -- and while she wasn't saying or doing all that much to help, Kitarune still had the desire to help out Hono as much as she could."Arianda can probably help you out more than I can since I'm still pretty new to Minatumi and just recently started living here. Arianda's been taking me to a few places, but I'm...still wrapping my head around it all, honestly."
Kitarune's gaze returned to the ground, gently rubbing her arm at the thought of her life not too long ago, before this sudden change and revelation -- her brother being alive, Arianda so suddenly and graciously accepting her and allowing her to move in, and how kind and welcoming everyone had been to her so far, and now, being able to help someone who seemed lost, but sweet. Maybe things were really looking up for her.
