Eternal Judgement

"A festival, huh? …How nice." And then it’s back to work. The amount of paperwork she has to deal with doesn’t leave her time for something like that.

"Could I take a very extended vacation, Eiki-dear?"

SHIT.

"Don’t you think you take enough breaks without asking for a vacation as well, Miss Komachi?" Eiki’s going to try to let that slip of the tongue slide. For now.

And meanwhile, while Komachi's relaxing, Eiki's continuing to work on all the paperworks that continues to pile up and pile up. When will it end?

"Yuuka, just leave her alone."

Now Komachi can sleep soundly during the night. And day. And afternoon. And during the extended lunch break. And the dinner break. And the breakfast break. And the inbetween breakfast and lunch break. And the 5th spirit ferry trip break.

Eiki doesn’t really care how many breaks Komachi takes… as long as she doesn’t take breaks while there’s a backlog. Because that’s just downright irresponsible.

"Yuuka, just leave her alone."

Eiki can’t help but wonder if there are any matters in Gensokyo that require the Yama’s attention. It’s not like there’s been a shortage of work lately or anything. No, sir.

"I will keep that in mind should I ever encounter her, Yama Shiki.  If she is a mere child of little threat. I worry for her safety.  I have never met Ms. Houjuu, however she has a sinister reputation in heaven.  I cannot help but worry about what may become of the child."

"Nue Houjuu…"

"You are right to worry, Nagae. But you need not fear. I will speak to Nue soon, make sure any prank she does plan isn’t overly harmful to the human. Though in all honesty, I think we have not too much to worry about ourselves. Nue’s pranks, though often harmful and sometimes scarring, very rarely inflict death upon their victims nowadays. One major benefit of her living at the temple is that she can’t too flagrantly break its rules."

"A thousand pardons, Yama Shiki.  I should not have let my tongue slip so."

Iku was not certain what she was being chastised for.  But to contradict the yama?  Unthinkable.

"I was referring to young woman who seems to be attempting to arrest Ms. Houjuu.  Is she an agent of yours perhaps?"

That was likely the best course of action when the Yama was in one of her moods. Smile and nod and agree with her, and she’ll realize her mistake later on. Not even a Yama can be perfect.

"Oh, you’re talking about her… pay the girl little mind. She is the daughter of the village elder and a bit… odd. She thinks of herself as Gensokyo’s police, and the village elder indulges her in this. In all honesty, I cannot blame him, as it keeps her mostly occupied. She is little threat to anyone outside of the village itself, though, and her only real target is Reimu Hakurei herself. You should give her a moment or two of your time, if you would like a bit of humor.”

"Yama Shiki, it is an honor. I was just discussing matters of this realms law with Ms. Hakurei."

"A fine subject of discussion. And you are correct, she is the main lawkeeper in Gensokyo, at least among humans and youkai. However, I couldn’t help but notice your description of her, and took slight umbrage at the idea of someone else being called such a thing. I am certain you understand." And the bow was returned, of course. Etiquette was very important to the Yama.

Is someone other than Eiki actually claiming to be the law of Gensokyo? Because Eiki might have a problem or two with that. You know, as an embodiment of all that is law and all.
