Yoshi would watch with stars in her eyes as Kyosuke spoke, as if what he was saying was the most interesting thing that her tiny little mind could comprehend. Fish up in the mountains?! The idea was preposterous, and yet the same time so incredibly intriguing. She had wondered aloud about the same thing mere moments ago, but it have it confirmed so quickly blew her away. The question that logically came from that was then how did the fish get into the mountains? He had said they were in waterfalls, but that didn’t make sense, did it? For fish to get into the rivers up so high in the mountains they would have to have swam upstream, and that’s impossible. It’s incredibly difficult for even humans to swim against fast flowing currents. But apparently fish could do it? The idea was crazy. And then jumping up waterfalls? The idea of a fish jumping up a waterfall and then becoming a dragon was a bit of an overwhelming idea for poor, sweet Yoshitsune. Even though it was an outrageous idea she took Kyosuke at his word. He wouldn’t lie, afterall. She would conveniently forget to hear the ‘I don’t know if it’s actually true’, and would instead take it at his word.
“Yes! Yes please!” She would nod her head very quickly, having an idea of fishing now that was action packed and exciting. How could it not be exciting when there were fish climbing up waterfalls?
“I would love to do that with you, Kyosuke! If you could teach me how to fish…” She would trail off, her mind wandering with the possibilities.
“That would be an adventure!”
She would be caught a bit off guard when Kyosuke removed his hand from hers, and she would give a bit of a frowny pout to him for it. It was unfortunately necessary though, as they both needed to sit down. Half the reason she kept her hand on him so long was to make sure that he was able to keep up, but it probably wasn’t necessary any longer that they were both here together. Still, a part of her wanted to keep holding his hand to make sure that he couldn’t run away.
“Oh! What to order…” She would glance down at the menu, reading over it quickly. This was a sushi place afterall, but if Kyosuke didn’t know what to order…
“Ah! You know what would be fun? Let’s get a boat together. I’ve always seen those and thought they looked fun but I never was able to order one myself. It was just too much food to all eat for one person. But two people! That’d be enough.” She would nod to herself, as if confirming what she just said.
“A boat for two, please! Oh! And some tea would be nice too.” The waiter, who seemed to be at least familiar with Yoshitsune by how he was able to understand her and tolerate her quick speech, would nod his head and disappear off into the kitchen somewhere.
“A boat is great! They bring out this big boat thing made of wood… It’s like this big!” She would stretch her arms out.
“It’s full of sushi and other stuff for dipping like ginger… Although I don’t really like ginger, but that’s okay. You might like ginger! Have you ever had ginger before? I don’t like ginger though, it’s just…” She would make a face, and stick out her tongue as if it was the only way to express how she was feeling.
”Oh, and they also have appetizers that come with it. A small salad and some miso soup for the both of us…” She would blink, having just noticed that Kyo had asked something about Yokai.
“Oh! Ohohoho! I wasn’t aware you didn’t know! I would have thought we were famous through out these lands…” She would put on a devious smile. Luckily they were in a booth to the far end of the restaurant alone, because it looked like she was about to continue her rant. “Yokai are… monsters! Demons! A living calamity!” She would put her fingers up to her forehead, one on each side to mimic horn.
“Monsters like Oni and Tengu who live up in the mountains!” She would giggle a bit, before putting on a scary face over to Kyo while still holding up her finger horns.
“I’m a Tengu! We don’t really look that much different from humans though, so if you don’t know the signs it’s hard to tell. Most Yokai have horns, but I was born without any too…” She would rub a bit at her forehead and look up. For a moment it looked like she was wondering if at any point her horns might start to grow in. She would grow disappointed after a few moments and pout at herself. “All the others would always make fun of me for how human-like I looked. But! My blood is just as pure as any Tengu! I guarantee it!” She would do her best to look prideful, puffing out her chest a bit.
Once the date had finished, Yoshitsune would thank Kyosuke and the chef for the good meal, and then scurry off on her way home.
