Kaguya shifts slightly in her seat. “Excellent work as usual, Eirin. You have my thanks. And I would very much like to hear any recipes that you believe would be popular among the rabbits… and I suppose I should ask Udonge for help. My, this is actually kind of exciting!”
Eirin nodded her agreement with a small laugh to show her levity at the suggestion. Any small part of genuine excitement on the part of the princess was always enough reason for the doctor herself to be happy. Over a thousand years the novelty of many things that people might take enjoyment in had slowly worn away due to endless repetition. Thus, the little impulses of new potentials could always bring out a smile from the sage.
“Mmm, well if you do take my assistant’s help then I will give her the time off in order to assist you properly. It is still a little too soon to divide her attention too much, yes? Besides, I do feel that I monopolize your pet a little by keeping her so busy. Just let us know whenever you would like to begin and I will be sure that she is available.”
The girl gasped at how there were rabbits here and there, as well as the fact that they would commence any order given to them. “Are all of these rabbits yours?” A rabbit passed by and Koishi gave it a small pat on the head. As observed as if skipped away to do what activities rabbits do. She clasped her hands and then rested her elbows on the table.
“I guess I am what you just said, and yes. Yes it does make sense.” She sat on the aforementioned chair with a smile on her face, it was another chance for someone to treat her as a guest instead of vice-versa. “So, do you enjoy Gensokyo Ms.Blue-Red?”
“I would not say that they are ‘mine,’ Miss Koishi. Rather, the rabbit youkai and I have an agreement that permits us to live here with them. It also has them assist myself and Kaguya with the household duties and in welcoming guests such as yourself.” As if on cue, a girl with short, dark hair and floppy white rabbit ears came in with a tray of bread and cheese, setting it out on the desk. Another had a tray of tea just behind the first. Once they dropped off their burdens Eirin gave an appreciative nod and the girls departed without a word.
The doctor began to pour tea for the both of them, gesturing to the food for Koishi. “Go ahead and eat as much as you like, Miss Koishi. We have plenty here. As for the question regarding my place here, I suppose that after a thousand years I would have to enjoy this place to still be here. It is a contented life for all intents and purposes.” The woman’s smile returned to looking at Koishi with a warm smile. “And what of yourself? Do you enjoy your life in Gensokyo, Miss Koishi? Have you been recently to your home to see your sister?”

“O-of course it was… You aren’t my mechanic nor my owner.” Ruukoto stammered, “I was given the mission to mind the shrine, so naturally I’d answer questions…”
She had a difficulty figuring out how far her duty went for minding the shrine. Still she’d do her best with what she assumed was her job.
“T-there are those, where I’m from, who’d buy maids like me for those kinds of things.”
Mostly it was due to the fact they were property. Androids like Ruukoto would always maintain their cute, young and innocent looks, which made them popular items for the perverted… or desperate. Ruukoto herself didn’t know this little fact, although she knew maids like her were often sold to some odious and shifty people in the stores.
“Minding the shrine does not necessarily imply answering personal questions, however.” Eirin shook her head lightly at the reply. Still, it was all rather fascinating. This girl was incredibly self-aware compared to most of the androids that she had come across in recent memory. The matter of ‘personal services’ was indeed a rather sour one to Eirin’s mind, but at least in Reimu’s care it was highly unlikely that Ruukuto herself would ever be subjected to such commands.
“Well then, I do have one more question, Miss Ruukuto, but it may be somewhat difficult to understand for you if your answer is ‘no.’ My question is whether or not you believe yourself to have a soul. Your self-awareness when you converse and your ability to feel embarrassed or nervous make it seem to me that you are not quite some normal android.” Eirin smiled gently, hoping to put Ruukuto slightly at ease despite the fairly personal inquiry.

Aromana glanced at Harmony upon hearing that Eirin was looking into Sin Youkai/ Sin aspects and rose an eyebrow before turning away to mumble to herself not wanting to interrupt their conversation.
Harmony smiled. “I hope it was not too much trouble for you miss Eirin, as for the remaining aspects in my world, Sloth, Envy, and Wrath are the only ones still active, As Pride who you know as Aromana’s Brother, Amadari who is the aspect of Lust, and the aspect of Greed have not shown a new incarnation as of yet,” Harmony places a hand on her chin thinking something over. “I wish I could tell you about how the three who live are doing but it has been a long time since I have met Alicia, or the other two,”
“No, Miss Harmony, I would not say that it was too much trouble. The worst of it was having to expose myself to proximity with the youkai of lust in this world. She was quite amicable about the entire ordeal, however, so things proceeded without incident. It was, however, quite the educating experience.”
Eirin shifted in her seat, bringing forth a sheet of notebook paper on which she began to draw what was obviously a magic circle of some unknown origin. “The idea that I had was, upon either the host being destroyed or the aspect being forced out by other means, to seal it within some inanimate object. Things already made for carrying and containing would be optimal, like a vase or jar with a lid. Regardless, you would simply need to draw the disembodied aspect into a seal like this with this other one around the container.” She began drawing a smaller seal with minute differences. “If my investigations are correct then this should be a rather reliable method for safely putting the aspects into remission for whatever time you need.”
“It’s that nurse-lady who took away my suzuran! Have you come to take more!? Haven’t you had ENOUGH!?”
“Really now, Miss Medicine, it is a wonder that nobody has attempted to silence you when all you seem to do is lash out at anyone who comes even remotely close. No, I do not require any more of your precious flowers, as I am growing some at my home. I was simply passing through.”

“Would you look a that. It is a pleasure to see you again, miss Yagoroko.” The merchant said, standing up and bowing politely towards the lunarian, his smile as kind as ever. “I suppose it is time for a change of clothes, as summer is behind the corner? Or is anything else needed?”
“Sir Rinnosuke.” Eirin gave a polite dip of her head to the shopkeeper. “I do suppose that some manner of lighter clothing would be in order, though it does stay relatively cool in the forest. Rather, I was here looking for books this time, before Miss Marisa simply steals them all.”

The bandages fit perfectly around the wounds. The princess certainly looks satisfied.
“You have a wise point to make as usual, Eirin. I would definitely comfort me, however, if I could give everyone something ‘beyond praise’ as thanks. At least once… oh, I just had a delightful idea! Perhaps I will go to the village to find some more extravagant spices and ingredients than we normally have, and prepare a meal for the manor! Well, when I can actually handle cooking implements, of course.”
It sounds like a good plan, albeit with a single possible spanner in the works: Kaguya has lent her hand to help with cooking a few times, but certainly hasn’t cooked any sort of complicated meal in several years, if not decades.
Eirin slowed slightly to hear her princess voice the suggestion. It didn’t seem like a terrible idea by any standard. “Of course I will agree with any suggestion that you may make, as long as it is what you wish to do then I will do what I can to support your plans. I could even suggest some simple recipes that the rabbits would enjoy, though Udonge may be the better person to ask regarding culinary matters.”
With a careful wrap and tighten Eirin finished the binding to keep Kaguya’s injuries covered. For the time being it would hold, at least until the Hourai Elixir’s effects took hold to restore her. “There you are, Kaguya. That should take care of you, your arms aside. If you need anything else that I can assist you with then please let me know.”
If something were to disrupt this relationship between the two, it could have been a brick heading towards Koishi. Maybe it’s just being delusional but whatever.
The observation that Eirin made for Koishi lightened up her opinion on her. It was a bit scary, since the doctor reminded her so much of her sister. “Are you this nice to everyone?” She asked without hesitation, as if she was a student. But the offering of snacks made Koishi shrug that question off as no problem.
“Yay food! Yes, i’m very hungry. Yay!” Her serious aura died and then turned towards the cute persona.
Eirin chuckled with a pleasant smile when Koishi showed her enthusiasm at receiving food. Of course she would dote on this child a little. That was only natural, right? “Just wait a moment, Miss Koishi.” With a few taps on the floor Eirin sent a signal to any rabbit within earshot. “Now then, let us sit down and wait on that food.”
The doctor took her chair and offered for Koishi to join her with an inviting gesture. “As an answer to your question, I do try to be very nice to everyone, but some individuals like yourself make it far easier by being ever so cooperative and agreeable~ Does that make sense?”
“Now, see, that’s a smile that should only come with feathers.”
“My my, how casually racist of you, Sir Daichi.”
