Don’t think about the fact that there are THREE SHIKIEIKIS

DON’T THINK-

GOD DAMMIT

"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.

A judge of heavens and a Lawyer of hell.

As expected, it didn’t take long for him to receive the warning that the judge wanted to meet him. It never happened that it would take much more than a few days until they finally ripped the business card apart, wanting to speak with him about what he asked them to, and normally those who took a bit more time were also the most interesting, as they normally were the more wise, too.

He didn’t teleport right away, though. No, doing so would make him look like he either expected such reaction, and thus look arrogant, or had nothing to do, which would make him look lazy. Instead, he prepared his briefcase, possible contracts and statistics stuffed in there along with pens and every utility he might need, and then straightened his smoking, just to look acceptable enough for a meeting of that importance.
Just then, he finally snapped his fingers, finally appearing in front of the desk of the Yama, quickly bowing in front of her to show respect and greet her properly.

"Greetings, Oh Judge. My apologies for making you wait for a while, I had to make sure to be prepared with everything I needed before entering this realm." As he was now far from his own hell, that statement was a little more important that one might think : now that he was there, moving in and out of that world for just getting a few things would quickly tire him out, and he needed to be in top shape if he wanted to make it work.

"My name is Satan, know also as the lord of hell, though I do suppose you’ve made your researches before calling me. And my reason of booking an appointment was related to your own "hell" ‘s  economical status. Am I allow to explain further, or is there something you might want to talk about, first?

Eiki, as was her nature, listened carefully to every word. He’d certainly dressed for the occasion. And from his words, it was clear he’d done his research on just how the Hells of Eiki’s realm worked. Still, he wouldn’t be here if he didn’t have a good reason to benefit himself. Whether the Adversary or the Tempter, that would be the same. And so she had to be careful.

"I have indeed done my research, Satan," she affirmed, not moving from where she rested in her throne, doing her best to seem as regal as possible. Eiki aimed to remind Satan of the power and majesty of his own God. "Know this, the deceptions you undertake, whether they be sanctioned by your God or not, they will not work here. My mirror can stare into the souls of those who catch sight of it, reveal all their sins and thoughts. Do not attempt to deceive me." In truth, it was a subtle bluff on her part - the mirror wouldn’t work on Satan, but he didn’t know that. 

"Now that we have made that clear, I think there will be no problems with you explaining further. Know, however, that if you run my Hells like you run your own, you will not be forgiven. Those under the sway of the Yamas can nearly always be redeemed, and the Hells are for punishment, not imprisonment for life eternal. Still… go on."
