Talk with the girl waiting for her friends

πŸ“ Jarilo-VI Boulder Town

The Moles' game of hide-and-seek is about to start. Talk with the girl waiting for her friends and join this exciting and exhilarating game!
Cunning Child
Cunning Child
It's almost time for everyone to meet up...
Cunning Child
Cunning Child
Why aren't they here yet?
System
System
A kid is mumbling something. She looks like she's waiting for someone.
System
System
You aren't quite sure if you have seen this kid before, but she does seem very familiar. You are certain that, at some point in your life, you've also met a kid with a similarly sly expression written all over her face.
Options
Are you waiting for someone?
Don't bother her.
Cunning Child
Cunning Child
Huh? You're the honorary member, aren't you, {M#Mister}{F#Miss} {NICKNAME}? What are you doing here?
Cunning Child
Cunning Child
Oh... I know! You are the person Boss Hook called to play hide-and-seek with us! Am I right?
Cunning Child
Cunning Child
Let's wait together here for the others to arrive!
Hook
Hook
Oh, it looks like everyone's here!
Hook
Hook
We'll decide who's it by rock-paper-scissors.
Children
Children
Rock! Paper! Scissors!
Hook
Hook
Hehe... I didn't expect that I would be it!
Cunning Child
Cunning Child
Boss Hook is so scary...
A More Cunning Child
A More Cunning Child
Looks like it's time to go into serious mode...
Not-Very-Cunning Child
Not-Very-Cunning Child
Boohoo... The game's basically over already...
Hook
Hook
Run as fast you can! Find somewhere to hide!
Hook
Hook
...But that's all pointless! For I, Pitch-Dark Hook the Great, will find every last one of you! Hahaha!
Hook
Hook
I'll say it again. The play area starts from this intersection all the way to the plaza! Hiding anywhere else is against the rules!
{NICKNAME}
{NICKNAME}
(Find a good spot to hide in this area.)

(Don't bother her...)

Find a place to hide

The hide-and-seek competition is on. Find a suitable place to hide!
System
System
You fix your eyes on this narrow alley. To be honest, you've been wanting to explore it for a while now, but the sense of justice in your heart forbids you from stepping into this place.
System
System
Perhaps now would be an opportunity to check it out for the purpose of hide-and-seek. You aren't sure if this is against the rules or not...
System
System
...But it really is quite a hidden location. It's a small alley, the kind that has been blocked off. Naturally, anyone would want to go explore what's in there.
Options
I'll hide here!
Find another spot.
System
System
You make the decision quickly. The way you see it, there's absolutely no way you would find a more secluded hiding spot in all of Boulder Town.
System
System
With this thought in mind, you hop over the rusted fence, and make your way into the pitch-black alley.
System
System
You had assumed that something incredible was going on here. Maybe there would be a tall, thin bandit with wiry limbs and wearing a white, skin-tight suit, wandering around on stilts while committing crimes...
System
System
Or perhaps the alley would contain a burly figure wearing black from head to toe, with a mask and a solid black cape. Their voice would be deep, as if it was smoked by hot Geomarrow mines, and they would dispense justice in the dark streets of Boulder Town as a vigilante...
System
System
...Unfortunately, you find none of that. You feel disappointed and instead squat on a pile of crates in a corner, waiting for Boss Hook to catch you.
Hook
Hook
Three... two... one...
Hook
Hook
Ready or not, here I come!
System
System
With this thought in mind, you hop over the rusted fence, and make your way into the pitch-black alley.
Hook
Hook
Hehe... The only one left is {NICKNAME}. Where are you hiding? I'm going to find you!
System
System
One hour later.
Hook
Hook
Honorary member... You've hidden yourself too well, but I'm not going to give up so easily!
System
System
Two hours later.
Hook
Hook
...Did {M#he}{F#she} go home already?
System
System
Three hours later.
Hook
Hook
...Whatever! We're stopping the game here...
Hook
Hook
Moles dismissed! Sleep well and see you tomorrow!
Children
Children
Hey, time to go home!
System
System
Looks like the children are already set to go home, even though they haven't found you yet.
System
System
Of course, this could just be a ploy to lure you out... kids who manage to get recognition from Boss Hook and join The Moles are definitely anything but ordinary.
System
System
So, what are you going to do? Will you go home with the children and go to bed, or will you prove to them that you won't take the bait?
Options
I give up, Boss Hook!
Why play if you don't intend to win? Stay hidden!
System
System
Just amuse the kids. You tell yourself there's no need to turn a game into a battle of wills.
System
System
With that, you raise your hands and walk out of the shadowy alley and into the lit street...
System
System
Three hours later.
Hook
Hook
Hey, {NICKNAME}! We can't find you. We're getting ready to leave! You've hidden yourself too well!
Children
Children
You've hidden yourself too well!
Hook
Hook
I can't find you! Where in the world were you hiding?
Children
Children
Where in the world were you hiding?
Options
I was hiding in the alley.
That's a secret...
Hook
Hook
The alley?
Children
Children

Children
Children
You cheated!!!
Hook
Hook
Geez... Whatever! I, Pitch-Dark Hook the Great, did not explain the rules clearly... Anyway, honorary member...
Hook
Hook
I, Hook, have decided that you win! Here is your prize. Take it!
Hook
Hook
A secret? OK...
Hook
Hook
...
Hook
Hook
I'm really curious though...
Hook
Hook
Geez... Whatever! I won't force you to tell! Anyway, you win! Here's your prize. Take it!
Hook
Hook
Alright. Today's game of hide-and-seek is officially over! Everyone, go home and get some sleep!
Children
Children
Go home and get some sleep!
System
System
Three hours later.
System
System
You play to win. That's the basic code of conduct for any professional player. Hide-and-seek is no exception!
System
System
And so, you remain silent, having decided to remain hidden in the darkness of the alley.
{NICKNAME}
{NICKNAME}
(Maybe I should look for a better hiding spot...)

System
System
You set your sights on the center of the plaza. To be honest, it's basically impossible to hide anything or anyone here. Standing here, you can feel everyone's eyes on you...
System
System
...But you enjoy THINKING OUT OF THE BOX. The most dangerous place is often the safest. Maybe Hook won't be able to find you, right?
Options
I'll hide here!
Find another spot.
System
System
You make a snap decision. The most experienced of hide-and-seek players will choose to hide in plain sight... Well, that's what you imagine, anyway.
Hook
Hook
Three... two... one...
System
System
You can already hear Hook's cheery voice echoing from afar. What's going to happen now? You can't help but imagine it as sweat rolls down your back. This exhilaration must be the joy of hide-and-seek.
Hook
Hook
Ready or not, here I come!
System
System
With this thought in mind, you hop over the rusted fence, and make your way into the pitch-black alley.

System
System
Since arriving in Belobog, you've felt as if there is an inexplicable connection between you and dumpsters. Now, at this critical moment during hide-and-seek, you find yourself staring at the dumpster.
System
System
It's located in the plaza. It's low key and hidden. No one would expect someone to hide in there. All you need to do is hold your nose.
Options
I'll hide here!
Find another spot.
System
System
You make a snap decision. You play to win, and no price is too high for victory!
System
System
With that thought in mind, you hold your breath, close your eyes, and dive into the huge dumpster. You curl up in this dark space that smells of rust.
System
System
It's not as smelly as you assumed. It's surprisingly comfortable. Is it because of the pillow and blanket? What are these doing in a dumpster anyway?
System
System
Seems odd... Does that mean you've just barged into someone's home? No time to think about all that. You just heard Hook's loud announcement!
Hook
Hook
Three... two... one...

System
System
This is just an ordinary canvas awning. Judging from the stacks of crates, it might have been a stall with heavy foot traffic, but for some reason, it has been abandoned.
System
System
This might be a good place to hide... a more traditional spot. You can hide behind the crates or under the table. Or, you might have something else in mind. It's all up to you.
Options
I'll hide here!
Find another spot.
System
System
You make a snap decision. If everything goes well, this awning will act as a trusty shelter for the time being.
System
System
But, like stated before, even a simple awning offers plenty of places to hide that you can afford to pick and choose. Well, what's going to be a better spot for you to hide?
Options
Behind the crates.
Below the table could work.
I can pretend to be a merchant...
Maybe switch to another spot.
System
System
Not bad. Traditional yet effective. And so, you bend down and stealthily move in between the crates as dust flies everywhere...
System
System
Three hours later.
System
System
This pile of crates is really high! Unfortunately, it won't provide cover for your {M#big}{F#tall} frame. You really wish that you were the same size as Hook, but you'll never be able to go back to those carefree days.
System
System
Better pray she doesn't find you! You can already hear her counting down loudly.

At least you won't get your clothes dirty.
Options
Nothing can stop me!
Maybe you're right...
System
System
That's good. Rise to the challenge! You crouch down and try to get underneath the table...
System
System
Uh-oh. This space is a little too narrow for you. Here's an apology on behalf of the table.
System
System
Looks like you'll have to find another spot. What'll do the trick?

Nice. A tactical retreat. Where would be a better place to hide?

This table doesn't provide much in the way of cover. Actually, having the table won't even make much of a difference. The miners look at you with suspecting eyes as you stand frozen in place.

To be fair, there's something off about how you're doing this... If you're pretending to be a merchant, you should have to hawk a bit β€” maybe act like you are selling something?

Hey! You're that hero who saved the Underworld!
System
System
You hadn't expected things to go this way... You were just hoping to take an unconventional approach in hide-and-seek. Now your attempt has turned into a sensational "Meet the Hero" event in Boulder Town!
System
System
One hour, two hours... You had no idea there were so many people who lived in the Underworld! They paid in credit and came up to shake your hand, either due to being grateful, respectful, or just there to join the excitement. They viewed it as a rare opportunity and continually patted your hand...
System

The commotion finally wore down by the fourth hour of this "Meet the Hero" event.

Three hours later.

The crowd has dissipated. You take stock of your two hands. These invincible hands have held on to the baseball bat and fought so many battles, but now they look like they've been carefully polished to shine... They might be even shinier than the Geomarrow in the Great Mine.

What about The Moles' game of hide-and-seek? You don't really care at this point β€” those kids just shook your hand too!
