- Event Info:
Oh shit, ye, he promised to visit his home for Christmas… but Mai was right here with him. Miss Luna was out on a mission and hadn’t returned yet, so Imai oversaw Mai’s actions in the Red Dragon Inn. That was when he remembered that he got shit to do in Shirotsume, so he rose up from the chair in the middle of the inn and rushed to the back of the building where a lac-phone post was located. He pressed the right numbers in haste and awaited the phone to be picked up by mama bear or papa bear back in Shirotsume…
“Hey, ma, it’s me!”
“Imai! Hello, sweetheart, and merry Christmas! So glad to hear from you again - are you coming to visit us soon? Your papa already finished decorating the house…!”
“Oh, neat, I can sloth around! Did me a solid, papa! But anyway, uh… I-I’m actually bringing a guest!”
“A guest? Do you mean from your guild, Sabertooth? Well, why don’t ya! They’re always welcome here - is it Miss Sabyn, perhaps? I could tell from first glance that she was a sweet angel, that dear~!”
“Uh, actually, it’s Mai - the blonde, little one from the school performance! Do you remember her? She bit my head-“
“Oh, you mean the little girl with curly hair? But what about her parents? Are they coming too?”
“U-Uh… look, Mum, she’s dangerous to be left alone in the guild hall-“
“W-What do you mean? Is she an orphan?”
“… T-Technically, if you think about i-“
“Oh my! B-But did you adopt her? Why haven’t you told me, then?! Are you even ready to have kids at all!?”
“N-No, wait, no, the guild adopted her! Miss Luna, a member from the guild, is watching over her - I think she’s her mother, but I’m not really sure - kinda confused on that part. They look nothing alike each other-“
“Oh, I see now… the guild is watching over her like a shelter, right? Tell ya what; Koguma would be joyous to have a playmate, y’know! She’s been so lonely without her big bro hanging about in the house, so meeting and making a new friend her own age would be so good for her!”
“… T-That’s actually a genius idea, mama bear! That way, Mai can be distracted from bombing the house with her God Slayer Magic!”
“… H-Her what?”
And that was how Imai found himself in Shirotsume, packed up with gifts to his parents and Koguma in a suitcase. And how did he bring Mai along with him this time? Well, you see… he simply did the amazing technique of holding her under his arm like a rug. However, he had been considerate and, at the very least, bought her one of those cute full-body jackets for the winter; a flight suit, as it was also called.
“Take a look, Mai; this is my hometown, Shirotsume!” Imai informed her before heading ahead on the main road that went through the small, feudal town - riiiiiiiiiiiiiiight next to a small contest. People were decorating Christmas trees with surprise stock boxes, and those who got to decorate the prettiest trees won peppermint sticks.
“… Ohhh! Ooguma! Onii-guma! You’re home!” Koguma cried in joy as she ran up to hug her brother. She and her father, Guma, had been participating in the contest, but Koguma was too distracted by the arrival of her beloved brother to continue - much to Guma’s reeeeeeeee. “A-And, uh, you, you’re the girl from, from back then! I like your candies, do you have more? I have lots of candy, look! I won them from this contest - are you gonna contest with me too? We can build big, pretty Christmas tree, so Santa Claus can hide presents under it!”
Koguma opened her flight suit to reveal tonnes of peppermint sticks, much to her father’s discomfort. “K-Koguma, close it, you’re gonna freeze… and merry Christmas, brat! Nice to see you back home aga-“ Unlike Koguma, Imai’s father Guma shivered by the sight of the girl who recklessly assaulted his son back in the school performance, sweating profusely.
“… W-Why did you bring that…?”
