> "Indeed, but the water caverns are dangerous. I wouldn't recommend going in there by yourself."
> "I'll go!" exclaims the other satori, who you forgot was here.
> "No, you won't." Satori puts a hand up to silence her.

>We're pretty strong, right?  What level of danger would bother us?

> A situation like this calls for a strong swimmer. You are strong, and you can swim, but you've only had experience with still or slow-moving water. The only times you've been in rushing water was when you were much younger and weaker. That's no longer a good representation of what you're capable of. You're pretty sure Satori is picking through those memories right now with how she's staring at you.
> You are pretty strong, but not invincible. It would take something like a natural disaster, being unable to move, maybe a cave-in. Losing your sword in particular would be bad, because, because...
> "Because you rely on it for a lot of your magic," Satori interrupts. "That would be bad."

> Frustration!
> You don't personally know anyone crazy enough to go into the rapids. The non-oni youkai who live near the river will go into the water sometimes, but never near the cave's mouth. You're all closer to nature than humans, but you're not above nature. It dawns on you that you'll have to go to the surface for help. This sucks.
> "It's not that bad," Satori pipes up. She's totally used to people being annoyed at her.

>"Maybe a kappa or something..."

> "Yes, maybe." Satori straightens up on the couch. "They're still on Youkai Mountain, aren't they--Koishi, don't do that."
> The other satori, who has been minding her business until now, is suddenly behind you and playing with your ponytail.

> You instinctively tense up and get ready for a fight. Wait--you're not trying to fight! Oh my god, this is so bad. Not only is she still touching your hair, but now she's laughing at you.
> "Sorry about her. She has a habit of sneaking up on people." Satori sets her book aside. You don't think she has been paying attention to it since she started this conversation, actually. "Koishi, I'm serious. She doesn't like that."
> Koishi, still smiling, finally lets go of your hair.
> "You're thinking of looking for a kappa, but it doesn't seem like you've been to Youkai Mountain in a while," says Satori. "A lot has changed since the oni forfeited their place in the pecking order."

>"...Like what?"

> "...Like the Moriya Shrine, the Kochiya Shrine, um..." Satori gets up and gently escorts Koishi out of your personal space. "Humans travel up and down the mountain on monorails now, to visit said shrines. So that place is under a lot more scrutiny, and no one is going to know or care that you're one of the big guns down here. I doubt you'll get in trouble, though. I mean, not unless someone tries to fight you and they find out you don't have spell cards."
> She opens the door; it seems the hallway is much less chaotic after feeding time. "That's the extent of what I know. The mountain gods are good at guarding thoughts they don't want me to see, when we're negotiating. Well, except for the Kochiya goddess."

> The Moriya Shrine runs the nuclear power plant. They're responsible for the Geyser Incident that happened 10 years ago. Dealing with them is mostly the Palace's problem.
> The Kochiya Shrine is, uh...um...They haven't come underground to introduce themselves yet, so neither you nor Yuugi know.
> "A monorail is like a train, but with one rail instead of two," Satori explains.

> You follow Satori out of the room and down the hall. After she directs Koishi into the kitchen, she takes you to what looks like a small waiting room. Your only company is a cockatiel that screams at you until Satori returns with a hand trolley. There's a big wooden crate and a few smaller cardboard boxes stacked on it.
> "Maybe you should've gone with a hammerspace inventory after all," she says after she's done huffing and puffing. She puts her hands to the small of her back and stretches. "Ugh. The parts for the coop and instructions are in the big box, and the smaller ones are a heater, a feed dispenser, and a waterer. I threw in some toys for free."
