>Knock on the door.

>It's easy enough to get to the door without causing problems, most of the playground is off to the side of the school.
>Knocking on the door, you can hear a muffled voice say "Come in!"

>Come in.

>You walk into the school building, and find Keine sitting at a large desk, at the head of a number of small tables, looking over something. Children's drawings decorate the walls, as do a number of hanging scrolls extolling the virtues of education and displaying simple concepts. The simple wooden floors look as though they have been swept recently.
>Keine looks up as the two of you enters, and frowns slightly. "What an unusual duo."

>"Yeah, we're focusing on our similarities rather our differences today. Which is to say I'm having some trouble that I think has to do with being a ghost, and it turns out that you of all people might know something about it. Is now a good time?"

>"I suppose so," says Keine, her frown not quite leaving. "I don't know what I can contribute to ghost-related problems, though."

>"Well, I suppose I should start at the start. This all started with me being randomly pulled into some parallel Gensokyo or something where everything is underwater. After a while I reappeared in Gensokyo, though a distance away from where I started equal to how far I'd moved while in this weird water world. Since then this has happened a few more times."
>Wait to see if she has any reaction to this part of the story.

>"But that's not the thing that I expected you to know anything about. You see, I met someone in that place, a being that calls herself something roughly meaning 'Stargazer'. When I met her there she looked like a man'o'war, but when she followed me back to Gensokyo she looked very much like an ethereal version of you. I don't suppose you'd know how she got there, or how I've been gotten there."

>"...I apparently know much less than I think," Keine says. "It's a difficult story to summarize, but allow me to leave out some context for brevity. At one point, I was separated from my hakutaku side, so to speak. That became One Who Watches the Lights of Darkened Heaven, or Stargazer as we tend to call it. Eventually, we came back together, she became one with me, and I became whole again. I have her memories of that time, still. I am still whole. So, it is impossible for Stargazer to be anywhere else."

> Well,she did communicate favouring not to encounter you or even tell you we were travelling together,and the same with everyone except for myself and then Tojiko,but since this is due to an honest necessity I could try asking here without forcing her."

> " Here - pocket out the Cactus and present it to Keine - she must stay and travel in here,in this Cactus Yukari has "Special Treated"and has gifted me for this very purpose".

> While I am contacting Stargazer to better explain the situation and ask her,could  you tell me if you perceive anything from this one ?"

>  Place our focus on the Stargazer-in-Cactus to communicate that it is truly due to an honest necessity that we revealed to Keine she is travelling with us and if she wants to reveal herself to her for the very same reason though without forcing her if she really does not want to .
