Anna had been given a strange task.

In this midst of all this chaos that was a spiritual bath place, Anna was to find the chest hidden somewhere among the baths. With the spirits coming and going, it was impossible to truly figure out just by standing in one place and looking to determine where it was.

This meant that Anna didn’t have time to be patient and have a sense of modesty. She weaved in and out of the group of spirits, making sure to keep track of Zero, who had come with her. Looking together, she was certain that they could find the chest and make sure to save the bathhouse.

Of course, that meant finding it first, and Anna wasn’t pulling any punches as she peeked into baths and glanced around for any sign of it. Spirits with a sense of modesty angrily yelled or screamed, but Anna simply blinked and walked away each time.

“Zero… Any luck?” she asked, once she approached him. She hadn’t had any luck yet, but at the rate of how crowded it was, she doubted they’d find it easily.

The Reploid scanned the crowd for a hint of the key's glimmer, but unfortunately thus far there were no keys to be found, only dirty water and dirty patrons of the bath house trying to enjoy their stay. What with them agitating the customers, he would think they would have been kicked out by now, but he'd consider it a blessing that they hadn't been

Hed just finished peering into a bath- getting splashed by the spirit for his trouble, "No, no luck yet, but there are several floors... the key has to be somewhere," he said, wringing the water out of his hair. He had come without his helmet since this didn't appear to be a combat mission, but he hadn't foreseen how the humidity would affect his hair. Prior to getting drenched, it had been puffed out to twice it's normal size.

"Do you want to try the next floor or keep looking in the remaining baths down here?" He asked, though he was mostly hoping for the upper levels to be a bit less crowded. Perhaps it had been left in one of the facilities up there. Somehow with all these people he doubted that no one would pick up the key if they found it, and with this many people...

Zero shook his head a bit, clearing those thoughts away. They had to find it and the chest or else this bathhouse was done for.

With Zero as a second pair of eyes, Anna had faith that they would find the chest in due time. It didn’t particularly help that they weren’t even sure of the time limit that they had to find this chest, and then use the key on it. Thankfully, the mess was only half the problem they could have had. Anna didn’t want to think of the mess they would have to deal with if they had to locate the key as well.

“You move on to the second floor and tell me what you find,” Anna decided on, already moving to peek into another bath. “I’ll keep searching down here and I will join you once I’ve checked everything.” At least this way, they’d have a head start in checking the second floor, and Zero was their best bet. Anna was small and nimble, she could easily fit into places and find herself in locations that Zero couldn’t.

She didn’t mind peeking into baths. She wasn’t sure why the spirits were as modest as they were being, despite coming to a public bath place.

With one more swing, she opened the door to a bath only to find herself face to face with a screaming spirit, who moved quickly to cover up any unmentionables that they didn’t want the little eleven-year-old to see. Anna merely blinked at the sight, before glancing around to see if a chest was nearby.

… Alas.

Anna gave him the order to search the upper floor, and he figured that would be the better option anyway. He could scout out the upper floors and rule out areas so that Anna wouldn't have as much to comb through. Or rather, that was the ideal. He wasn't sure if Anna would rather comb through every crevice or not- she certainly had no shame in peeking into the baths of the spirits.

Thankfully as he had hoped, the next floor wasn't quite so busy. It seemed to be occupied predominantly by the more wealthy patrons, seeing as the atmosphere was calmer and the baths seemed more cut off than the ones on the floor below. From what he could observe from the comings and goings of the workers, the lodging was somewhere above this floor, likely off limits to visitors... And somehow he had a feeling it would be on a restricted floor. Still, he was nothing if not thorough. If he was going up, he'd make sure there wasn't anywhere he hadn't checked on this floor first.

He hoped that he wouldn't get splashed again, at least. "So far there's no sign of the chest. I'll send periodic updates, okay?"

So far, they’ve had no luck. No sign of the chest that they sought, no sign of where it might be, and all they had gained from their search was the aggravation of the spirits. Anna huffed at this. She had checked every bath on the first floor, and with Zero checking the second, that meant she had to travel off to the third.

Zero had called her up, and told her that there was no sign of the chest on the second floor so far. With a nod, Anna decided to reply. “… I’m going to go check the third. Once you’re done, move on to the fourth. We’ll alternate. One of us has to find it.”

With the decision made, Anna made way for the elevator, pausing to wait for it alongside a few of the workers of the bath. She glanced up to her fellow passengers, noticing that one of the workers had a cart with various supplies on it. Things like cloths and towels were stacked up on both shelves of the cart, but nestled between two groups of towels…

… was a single, elaborate chest, with a lock.

“Ah-!” Anna moved to reach out, but the worker had already left the elevator on the second floor. Before she could even rush to the door, it had closed and began to move up, leaving her trapped and set to wait for the elevator again on the third.

So, with that, Anna pulled out her phone. “Zero. I just saw it, there’s a worker with a cart – the chest is between two stacks of towels. She left the elevator on your floor, but I missed the chance to leave. See if you can find her.”

Zero was getting ready to head up to the fourth floor when he got Anna's second call, after hearing that the worker had left the elevator, Zero gave a soft curse, as he was a bit away from the elevator. He wouldn't be able to get over there too quickly from where he was, and they definitely needed to find that worker.

The red reploid had no way of telling where the worker could be headed, especially since this was his first time in the bathhouse, and its layout information was still nigh nonexistent for him. By the time he reached the area where the elevator was, there was no one in sight. He let out a sigh, but kept moving. She should still be somewhere on the floor, likely putting towels away, but he had no idea where the towels were kept

Perhaps they were near the baths somewhere? That would make sense. In the meantime he called Anna, "I haven't seen her yet, but if she's got towels on a cart, she's probably looking to put them away. I'm going to keep looking, see if I can't find her. Good luck, Anna."

The two of them had never been in this bathhouse before. That provided quite a few problems for the two of them, specifically in regards to this worker who was wandering around the place with a cart, the chest they needed on it. Anna got to work as soon as she got off the elevator. She turned right back around and pressed the button to go down.

Knowing she’d have some time to wait, she turned back to peer over the edge to see if she could see the worker from where she was. That was when she spotted her, not on the second floor like she had just been…

“Um, Zero?” Anna began on the phone. “… Something strange has happened. She left the elevator on the second floor… But suddenly… she’s back on the first?” It was true – she could see the woman from the third floor, and now she was suddenly offering towels to a customer on the first floor.

This was going to be one interesting chase.

Why would she go to the second floor only to go back down to the first? Zero couldn't seem to wrap his processor around that one, but It didn't really matter right now. The fact was that she was, and she had the chest. They would have to catch her if they didn't want the bathhouse getting blown off the world by the very one who put it there.

"Alright. I'll head down there, but in case she goes back up there, perhaps you should stay on the third or second floors to try and catch her?" He figured that perhaps they were just one step behind and needed to predict her movements if they wanted to catch her since she was on the first floor now, she may very well head back up afterwards.

Regardless of the reasoning behind it, Zero had been tasked with catching the woman, and seeing as he wouldn't tucker out as quickly as Anna, he would be doing the running around and pursuing directly, so he headed down to the first floor as fast as possible without raising a fuss to try and look for her. "Where did you see the worker at down here?"

Anna kept a stern look at the woman from where she was. Perhaps she only moved because Anna had lost sight of her, so she was moving back and forth? It was impossible to tell for sure, but it was likely the work of the Goddess at this rate. Anna could only hope with all her passion that this was resolved quickly. An entire building full of people was at stake here.

“She’s near the wall with all the baths, to the left of the main doors,” Anna described, moving along the banisters in order to keep an eye on her. “Maybe if I don’t look away… she’ll stay there…?”

But all it could take was anything. In one moment, even. Anna just had to keep a close eye on her and not look away, maybe not even blink. If something big was heading her way, she’ll have to move and accommodate for it, and not lose sight of the worker. Hopefully.

But in that moment, a huge spirit had walked past, and she lost sight of both worker and cart.

As Zero arrived at the area in question, he found that there was no sign of a lady with a towel cart at all. They lost her again? Anna had only just said she was here- how could she just be gone? The red reploid lifted a hand out of habit, but his helmet wasn't there. "She isn't here. Did you lose visual?"

Zero looked up to see if he could spot Anna or the woman from his position, and he thought he saw a woman with a cart near the railing on the third floor, "Hold on, I think I see her, she's on the third floor!" He began running over in hopes of catching the woman as she was headed by the stairs. With any luck they would catch her sooner rather than later.

“Yeah… sorry, someone got in my way…”

Anything else she wanted to say was halted when Zero had looked up and detected her once more. Now, she was on the third floor. Anna had officially had enough of this game. She was going to take the initiative. It was time to end this, and to take chances. Cat and Mouse was no longer fun.

“Keep an eye on her. I’ll be there.”

But, instead of taking the elevator again, she carefully hoisted herself up onto the banister. Holding tight to the nearby column, she started to carefully edge herself closer in order to try and climb up. She felt that she had a good grip. That it was possible for her to climb up to the third floor from here. If all failed, she could use her King’s Aura.

"It is fine, Anna, you don't have to apologize." Zero said gently. He could hear the girl's tone change when he reported the woman's whereabouts. Understandably so, the red reploid was getting fed up himself with the floor hopping attendant as well at this point. Even so, he felt a pang of concern when he saw Anna attempting to climb a support column. As much as he tried to assure himself that she was tougher than most little human children, he still had the urge to keep her safe.

When the woman with the cart got to a spot where he could keep an eye on her as he ascended the column, he ran over and used his triangle jump tactic to scale the wall. When he got to where Anna was, he scooped her right up and deposited her on the third floor while he clung to the side of the colomn. This way no one could bar his view of the woman. With any luck she would stay put this time and they would be able to get the chest from her.

After all this farce had been going on entirely too long.

Within moments, she was scooped up and placed right back down on the ground of the third floor. Anna looked up in surprise, seeing Zero standing there and staring at the woman they had been chasing across the bathhouse. Anna turned as well, seeing her doing her duties, right there in plain view, as she prepared towels for a pair of guests in a bath.

And just their luck, the chest was still nestled gently between two stacks. Then, almost as if she was in some loop, she picked up the towel she had just finished preparing and began to fold it again.

This was their chance. Anna straightened, and approached the woman, quietly digging through the cart with little to no reaction from the bath worker. With one tug, she managed to loosen the chest from the towel barricades, and with a thump, it hit the wood floor. It was surprisingly heavy.

However, the lock was solid, and was currently impossible to insert the key. “… There is something that we are missing…” What could it possibly be? They had the key, and they had the chest. That was when she spied a little plaque, with a HOMRA logo on it.

Some words were etched into the plaque: Please state one legitimate nice thing about each other!

Anna tilted her head, before looking up at Zero. “… I like your sense of responsibility.” She had already complimented his shade of red when they had met, so perhaps a new compliment would suffice?

Once the young girl was settled on the third floor, Zero saw out of his peripheral that Anna took off after her target, the woman with the cart. Curiously enough, the lady didn't react in the least to Anna plucking the chest off the cart, and just went on her way once the chest was taken. Perhaps she was a construct made for the express purpose of throwing them off on their quest.

Regardless, once Anna had the chest, Zero saw no need to stay on the column and vaulted over the railing so that he could join Anna with the chest. Paying no mind at all to the workers and patrons he passed on his way, he ran over to the young girl and knelt beside her. there was some problem of some sort, seeing as she hadn't undone the lock just yet.

And then she complimented him out of the blue.

Responsible? He supposed he could be described as such, but he had a tendency to be rather.. Rash at time, taking needless risks, and X was always quick to point out every risk and thing that could have gone wrong. It was just in X's nature as a worrier, he guessed. Still, Zero gave a slight smile, "That's kind of you to say... I find you to be very mature for your age. It's impressive."

Anna smiled at his compliment, bowing her head slightly. “… Thank you.”

With both compliments given, the key could finally enter the lock. She turned and knelt before it, key tight in her hand. This was it. The key she had received at the tea party was finally going to be of some use, and the bathhouse that sat in Konoha would be saved to live through another year. Well, hopefully.

Carefully, Anna inserted the key into the lock and turned it until she heard the distinct clicking sound. The chest swung open – and though it was empty, she let out a sigh of relief. Just like that, everything was finished and they could move on.

“There. Now this place is safe,” she declared as she stood back up and turned to Zero. “Thank you for assisting, Zero.”
