    Miko had been gathering information about Pandora as efficiently as she could. As far as she could tell it was some kind of another world, much like Gensokyo, except it existed on its own plane of existence. The people of this world had also all been seemingly taken from their homes and placed there, much like she was. She could not find a single person who actually originated from Pandora, so the world really was like some kind of prison.

    Most bothersome, however, was that no one seemed to know who was responsible for their imprisonment, even those who had been in the world for a long time. Of course, it made sense, seeing as if they knew who it was they surely would be seeking a way of making them send them back or force them to do so if at all possible. Whatever it may be, Miko found herself only knowing more about the world, not the person responsible for it, which was useful, but meant she still had no way of getting to the culprit of this incident.

    Still, she needed to take some time off from her investigation and try enjoying herself a little. After all, she had all the time in the world for herself, even if Futo and the others might worry, they could spare an hour or two while Miko tried to make the most out of this experience that was given to her. Despite being in another land, the powers of her urban legend still worked with no ill effects. This made it a good opportunity to try a play little jokes on people, after all, it was what she had to do as someone who carried such a powerful urban legend with her.

    She descended from the skies above Pandora Town during the night, as it would be the most appropriate time for such a display, and landed gracefully on the ground, going towards the first person who came upon her line of sight with a distinct regalness to her walk.

    "Hello. Can I ask you something?" She offered them a smile, a small, carefree one.

    Be it day or night, Robin found herself wandering around aimlessly throughout the town on a regular basis. Even though it had been a month or two since she arrived here, the mechanic still hadn't gotten accustomed to simply staying inside when it got dark. The cover of night was her friend back when she needed to avoid the government's watchful eyes during illegal repairs... it was hard to stay indoors at night now. Besides, time spent walking was time she didn't spend asleep with the nightmares.

    She must have been quite the odd sight, really, what with the giant wrench strapped to her back. She wasn't going to just stop flaunting the sign of her profession everywhere now that she was in a place where she could actually practice it legally, though! That would be denying one of the only benefits granted to her by being ripped from her home and getting taken here, after all... there really weren't enough benefits. Robin was feeling homesick.

    The mechanic got a bit lost in thought about home. She hoped she'd get a chance to see it again, and maybe get a chance to make everything right again, to fix it all. But she knew that was just a childish hope. It was already too late for that, she didn't have to fix things anymore... aside from machines, anyways. She already knew that people couldn't be fixed, so she just had to try staying away from those situations... even if all she wanted was to fix everything and everyone.

    Though her head was in the clouds, she snapped back into reality when she realized what looked to be just another pedestrian, albeit an odd one, was actually approaching her. Oh no, was she doing something wrong?! She must have had something on her face or something, right? Her eyes darted around a bit.

    It was only after the woman actually spoke that she felt slightly less uncomfortable. Robin was suddenly unsure if she was being spoken to right now. Maybe someone was behind her? The mechanic pointed at herself, as if asking "You're talking to me?" before turning her head and deciding that no one else was there... assuming there wasn't anyone invisible, but what were the odds of that? It seemed like she really was being talked to.

    Not wanting to talk just yet, since it was such a mental struggle for Robin to speak a lot, she simply gave a nod to show her consent. Surely it wouldn't be some sort of weird question, right?

    The quiet type, this one. It was a little harder to tell the desires of people who didn't speak much, but this wasn't why Miko was there anyway. This girl was meant to be a mere distraction from Miko's investigation so there was little point in looking to deep into her desires. Still, she looked to be so shy that Miko almost felt bad about putting her through this, not that she was planning to do much more than just give her a little scare, but for someone like that, even something that small could have some unintended consequences.

    "Would you like a red mantle or a blue mantle?" She asked, enveloping her body in her own mantle for emphasis, it's color changing from purple to red on one side and blue on the other. She still kept a small, relaxed smile paired with a calm voice that was pretty much made to give a false sense of security.

    OK, that was a weird question. What color mantle would she want? Robin couldn't even tell if this was only a hypothetical question or if she was planning on actually giving her one. The mechanic quizzically tilted her head. It was a simple question, really, but she had a history of messing up when faced with choices that shouldn't even have a wrong answer.

    Well, there might not even be any trick to this, right? Some people just... wanted to desperately know what color clothes you wanted... not really. The point was, she couldn't just walk away now because that would be pretty rude. Taking a single breath to calm herself down so that she could actually bear to let a few words out, Robin made a choice. "Red... I think I'd like that better?" She said, the uncertainty obvious in her voice. Still, an answer was an answer.

    People never really thought outside the box did they? Well, perhaps this girl wasn't familiar with the legend, but still, it was odd how people were so eager to completely follow the instructions of a stranger randomly offering them something. Oh well, with the color chosen, Miko's cape turned completely red and she unwrapped herself dramatically.

    "I see. Red is a powerful color, the color of blood, the prime material I need." Miko kept smiling peacefully, lightly tapping her shaku on the palm of her free hand. "Now, how shall I extract the blood that will decorate your body like a mantle?"

    OK, this was getting uncomfortably familiar. The way she was saying such scary things so calmly... it felt very unsafe. What type of a trick question was this? "I... don't think I want a mantle of blood," Robin said slowly, backing up a few steps. "And... I think I'd die." Another few steps back.

    Alright, she needed to get away from this person. It suddenly struck her that the stranger didn't seem to be around until a few seconds before she approached Robin. That was somewhat ominous. Her left hand reached down to her stun gun. She deftly changed it's firing mode to the usurper gun and then quickly pointed it right at Miko. "D-Don't come any closer, please," she said, trying to sound intimidating but failing on so many levels.
