>Let's clean up and help Nitori close up.
>"I guess that's why you don't drive. So, are the buses any safer?"

>You help Nitori with cleaning and tidying up the place.
>"With how little common sense Gensokyo has, a bus is probably just as dangerous, if not more so than a car." Nitori says. "That's why I prefer just walking."

// Guess we can't learn our first skill just yet, lets think of some other skills we want to learn
> "Oh, do you have any old tools you don't need anymore?  You never know when stuff like a screwdriver may come in handy"


>Nitori blinks a few times as she hears what you are saying.
>"I get what you mean, but anything I don't need anymore tend to not be in usable conditions." She tells you.

I imagine learning skills to the point that Summers considers them skills may be outside the time scope of this RP. Otherwise Shion would have learned a few just from being homeless and not dying from it.
Maybe, but I still think we can increase our abilities
//Purvis is right, learning anything that I would consider a skill would take too much time, just like how in real life you cannot learn a skill in a short timespan.

>And with that, the clock reaches 5:00PM, signifying the end of Nitori's shift for the day.
>"Whew, what a day!" Nitori says, as she takes a sip from a bottle of water.

>"Okay, that's fair."
>Does it seem like Nitori is done cleaning up? If so, let her lead the way home. If not, continue to pitch in.

//I'm surprised nobody had thought to ">Check inventory" so far...or ">Retrieve arms from X", or "Check chest for usual growth"

>There's still the tools and toolboxes to be put back into the proper shelves.

>"Say, what are you planning to do with all that money?" Nitori suddenly asks.

>"No surprises there..." Nitori remarks. "Not like any beggars would expect to suddenly earn so much money in the blink of an eye..."

>Checking inventory...
+BATTERED HOODIE AND SKIRT - you've put this on since 10 years ago, and had not taken it off ever since. It is a bit worn out, but for some reason, it doesn't stink at all.
+WARD OF CASH ($50000) - you looted this off a Sukeban thug that threatened Nitori. You wonder why she is carrying so much money in the first place...
+KNIFE - you also looted this one off the same Sukeban thug. It doesn't seem to have any differences from regular knives.

>"Oh, right..." Nitori says upon being reminded. "I just need to put this toolbox back on the shelf, and-"
>The cleanup finishes, right as the clock strikes 5PM.
>"-done!" She finishes.

>Once we're on the way, say, "So, you know where I'm from, but how about you?"

>"Okay. It's this way." Nitori says as she leads the way, beginning by simply walking out of the garage.
>As you follow her out of the garage, you notice the garage door closing on its own. It seems to be an automatic door...
>"Me? I've always been a native Gensokyian. Born here, and has been living here ever since." She answers your question.

> Be weary of Sukeban people once outside, we do not want to be ambushed.

>You keep an eye out for Sukeban thugs, just to be on the safe side.

>"Well, I had a few from high school, but I haven't contacted them since graduating high school." Nitori answers.
>You had your younger twin sister, Mitsutake Jyoon. Key word being "had". She single-handedly drove Musoukyo into financial ruin 10 years ago, and you haven't heard from her ever since...

> "So this is your home town?"

>"Yep." Nitori answers.

> Was our sister an identical twin?

>Yes, Jyoon looked identical to you, including having that long blue hair.

>"Wow, you're a real loner, huh? Guess that means you're being extra nice to me; thanks!"

>Nitori seems flustered at your statement.

>As the two of you walk down the street, you notice a group of three girls, dressed identically to the Sukeban thug you encountered earlier today (with the only difference being how they do their hair), slowly approaching your location. They don't appeared to have noticed you, but they're getting closer...

>The two of you quickly duck behind a dumpster in an alley, and wait for those three Sukeban to walk by.

>You and Nitori keep quiet as you wait for the Sukeban to pass by.

>In the meantime, you hear them talking about something. The word "bank" is mentioned, but other than that, you can't quite hear clearly what they're talking about.

>You decide that, if the Sukeban are planning to mess with a bank, it's none of your business. At least you hope you'll never get involved in some way...
>Nitori waits for another minute before peeking out around the dumpster.
>"Yep. They're gone." She tells you. Didn't even notice us."

>Nitori nods. The two of you then head for the next block, emerging in another street.

> Keep an eye out for any stores that interest us now that we have some money

>As you emerge from this other street, you notice the following stores that interests you:
-a clothes shop;
-a cafe;
-a convenience store
-a bakery
