> We have to be careful that we don't run in to the sukeban again as they will attack us

Also I think it is a bad idea to stay at Nitori's, considering what we did, Sukeban likely knew Nitori (and can find out where her shop is) which will lead to us and she is likely more pissed with us than Nitori considering we interrupted her and took her cash but I don't know if Shion is smart enough to make this conclusion, let me know what you think Purvis

Given we just humiliated and robbed one of their members, I think we're going to be in trouble no matter what unless we skip town. And that's assuming they're only localized in this town. It's going to be a point of pride that they rough us up, at least, until it becomes clear we're too much for them to handle. Sukeban problems were going to be inevitable the moment that punch got thrown unless we get some powerful friends.

Yeah we can't face them until we become more powerful / learn some skills etc. I still kind of think we should head out immediately instead of waiting for the day.  At least they don't know our name (though Nitori does and they could find out from her)

While I'm not opposed to heading out, we don't especially have a reason to? That's one of the problems with being a drifter, you don't have reasons to do much of anything.

Being a drifter aren't we spontaneous since we have little to no planning in our lives?

//Well, since the plot is going to revolve around the Sukeban anyway...

>"Oh, no, I wouldn't have you be my janitor. That'd be an insult to your impoverishment." Nitori says.
>"Though I do need a hand in my job..." She adds. "My shift starts in about 15 minutes. So why don't you take a rest until then, and decide if you want to help?"

>Nope. You just weren't old enough to legally own a driving license 10 years ago, so you never owned a car.

//Since it'd be boring to have to sit through every single repairs that will be going on in the day, that means we'll be skipping through most of the day.

*Girls are repairing cars*

x-x-x

>Okay, so it turns out that being a car mechanic in Gensokyo is not a very nice choice of career. But not because of the tedious and tiring works...
>Rather, most of the cars that came in needing repairs are a result of the drivers doing things that violates common sense (such as intentionally grazing another car as it passes by), and sometimes the damages are too severe to be fixed up, or is just something a regular motorist is unlikely to encounter. And then there's the drivers being very demanding of how this and that part of the car should look like after it is repaired...

>"Sorry that I forgot to tell you, but Gensokyo's idea of common sense differs from the rest of the world..." Nitori apologizes to you as she wipes sweat off her forehead, after having just repaired another car (and giving it back to its owner).

>No, they lose points instead.
>With all the grime, oil slick and stuff you (and Nitori) have to touch while working? You can say it is very messy.
>Since none of the repairs so far required looking at the dashboard or steering wheel, nope. However, you do learn that there is more to starting the engine than just turning the keys in the ignition.

>How much time has passed?
>What time is it right now?

>You kind of lost track of the time, so you look at the clock in the garage.
>It is now 4:50 PM (6 hours since starting the day's shift), about 10 minutes until Nitori closes up shop.

>"I've watched traffic before. Someday they're going to make dash cams mandatory."

>"'Someday' being 'not anytime soon'..." Nitori says. "Sometimes I wonder if people bought their driving licenses instead of legitimately earning them..."

I imagine learning skills to the point that Summers considers them skills may be outside the time scope of this RP. Otherwise Shion would have learned a few just from being homeless and not dying from it.
