Interview with an Oni 1"What’re you using this for, anyway?"Interview with an Oni 1 by hoshigumadouji
Himekaidou Hatate lifted her eyes from her notebook over to the blonde oni who sat across from her. “The interview?”
She nodded. She was often reported to be tall and voluptuous, possibly by Aya’s dishonest account, but Hoshiguma Yuugi was neither of the sort. Hatate figured that Yuugi was at least ten centimeters shorter than her own mere 163. But even though she lacked height, she still radiated with power, a warm but aggressive charisma to rival even the Scarlet Devil’s. In fact, Hatate felt a little intimidated by her.
"It’s for my newspaper," Hatate replied, trying not to add "sexy in a confindent and athletic way" to Yuugi’s written description. Yuugi was rather pretty, even though she didn’t fit Gensokyo’s usual definition of "small and girlish" as "sexy."
There was no doubt that Yuugi was alarmingly petite, but there wasn’t anything girlish about her. Her voice was low in a feminin
Interview with an Oni 2Hatate flipped on her recording device and readied her pen. She planned on taking notes as they talked and saving the recording, too, for further research.Interview with an Oni 2 by hoshigumadouji
"Start from the beginning," she said. "Tell me about your earliest memories."
There was a soft smile on Yuugi’s lips, a blissful expression Hatate had seen on Suika’s face but didn’t expect to see on the tougher oni. “I was abandoned by my mother as a baby, like all oni, left to die for being abnormal.”
"You seem happy about that," Hatate remarked, jotting notes as she listened to the oni’s response.
"It was for the best," Yuugi replied. "I honestly don’t think she could’ve handled me. It bothers me that I never knew her, but I’m much older now. I don’t think about it as much now as I did as a kid."
"How old are you?”
Yuugi took a thoughtful swig of sake. “1,112. I was born in the late summer of 900, near Ooeyama, left in the woods to die.”
"But you obviou
Interview with an Oni 3Hatate’s eyes widened. She knew that the two oni were close friends, but she had no idea that they had known each other for over a millennium.Interview with an Oni 3 by hoshigumadouji
"When did you first meet Suika?" she asked. "Did she live in the same orphanage?"
Yuugi shook her head. “She was homeless. I don’t know her past really well because she gets really emotional about it.” She smirked. “Suika’s always been a tough girl. She doesn’t like to be caught crying. And believe me, it’s heartbreaking to watch.” She took a swig of sake and swished it around her mouth thoughtfully. “That’s the biggest difference between Suika and me; I wear my heart on my sleeve, in a sense, and Suika closes herself off when things hit too close to home. That being said, she’s still brutally honest, like me, only not with herself.”
Hatate noted Yuugi’s perspective on Suika in the margin, figuring that Yuugi knew her well enough to have a clear idea of what she
Interview with an Oni 5For being in Former Hell, Hatate found the Ancient City to be a rather merry place, especially in the evening. The streets were lit with hanging lanterns and resonated with the sounds of oni folk music, laughter, and chatter.Interview with an Oni 5 by hoshigumadouji
"What’s with that look on your face?" Yuugi asked, smiling up at Hatate.
"Oh…" Hatate averted her eyes, not wanting to become transfixed in Yuugi’s gaze. "I haven’t seen the City in the evening before. It’s so lively."
Yuugi nodded. “We love it here. It’s the one place we can be ourselves and make a living without human intervention.” Then she grinned. “You like lively?”
"It’s interesting," Hatate managed to say. "Tengu aren’t as wild. I mean…Aya’s a free spirit…"
"…but not like the oni. I get it." Yuugi gestured to a large and heavily lit building in front of them. "If you like lively, then you’re in for a real treat. There’s the bar."
