The woman from the Sushi-bar called back yesterday. She asked me a few questions about the application I submitted and she seemed to be happy with the answers I provided, so it sounds like I got the job. I will meet her at 4 in the afternoon in Oike, where the bar is located. This is good news.
That aside, I have fully recovered, and I feel much better now that I devoted an afternoon to meditation.
I'm ready to set off in search of Kurama, even though I'm afraid I'd be out of my depth if I were to confront Karasu. I won't slip away, though. I am a Shinobi, and I owe Kurama a debt of gratitude.
At the moment, everyone seems a little tired or out of sorts. I haven't heard much of Suzuki and Rinku since we came back, but it sounds like Juri is living with them now. Speaking of the woman, is it me or my presence disconcerts her?
For some reason, I have a feeling that Suzuki's angry with me. And Shishiwakamaru is acting oddly, too. He's not being very nice to Juri, in my opinion. I'm not saying I'm the only one who acts normal, though. I have been feeling a little strange in his presence. And my temperature keeps rising when... ah well.
