> Maybe they just don't know what they need...  A good salesman is one that sells solutions, a great salesman is one that convinces you to solve a problem you never even knew you had...

> Look for any conversations or exchanges and discretely listen in.

> Take note of their actions, possessions, houses etc. does everything appear roughly like what we'd expect a remote village to look like?  Any sign of technology or do they look like they're living behind the times?

> You cant get much description from here, but it looks like they could be female.
> The maid is talking about good places to search for goods in what you'd assume is a store. Another person is talking about how uneventful their day was to someone else...
> And that's about it... Not even much idle banter by anyone at this hour. Then again, people don't commonly talk aloud to themselves.

> Not a single person you spot has a phone out. This isnt too off for a village.

> You start searching, but most of the buildings around here look like residences... There seem to be different kinds further away, but that puts you out of range.
> Still pretty peaceful. You wonder if anyone even minds anyone else here.

> "I see. And for cooking?"
> "Lets focus on one thing first." The maid answers her friend, before you notice their pause you were looking for.

> " This is... I haven't felt something like this in forever. Similar, but very different from her. I didn't know Gensokyo had them..."  The maid's friend speaks. A redhead, now that you face her.
> "Hm?" The maid herself questions her friend.

// Why are they treating us like yokai? Didn't we like wake up at most an hour or two ago near the shop?  There's no way we transformed so quick

// Also we can answer something like "I'm not sure, do you remember the first moment you were alive?"

//We might have traded our memories prior to waking up

//It could also be the shop is fooling them by covering our scent with its magic

//I am not certain though
