“It’s really no problem.”
This guy was kind of starting to remind her of Io now, with that… lack of assertiveness at times. However, he didn’t seem like a bad person, so Airi had no worries.
She headed towards the entrance of the cave, making sure the guy was still following him. He still looked really shaken, and then she realised—
“Whoops, I forgot to ask! What’s your name? I’m Airi Ban.”
Then she turned around, giving him a hand (which was asking for a shake). She needed to work on her politeness too, she noted, putting it in her mental list.
Part of Keisuke wanted to go deeper into the cave, just to see if Midori was a hallucination or not. But he realized that it would be best to let this girl help him leave, as he was in no state to keep going at the moment. So he followed her, thankful for her assistance.
“Oh, that’s right.” He was too shaken to realize neither of them had introduced themselves yet. He wearily shook her hand and smiled. “I’m Keisuke Tagaki. Nice to meet you.”
“Likewise,” she said, letting go. This guy seemed really scared, and this cave was probably not helping. It gave her the creeps, chills continually crawling up and down her spine. “Let’s try to go find some water or something, it would help in this sort of situation, wouldn’t it? Then we can rest and you can get your mind in order.” Airi said a lot, she realised. She cleared her throat, and began to walk, making sure that he was following her. The guy seemed a bit like Jungo in his way to drift away, and especially with his mind like this.
She extended her hand again. “C’mon, let’s go. I’m not leaving you.”
