    Summary

    “Hold that thought,” says Reigen. “The spirit isn’t the protagonist. The spirit is, no offence intended, the villain. The spirit is the obstacle our hero must overcome before reaching his happy ending.”

    “Oh, no,” the spirit says. “No, not at all. I see this story as more of a tragedy. Suffering in life, suffering in death. The futile attempts of one spirit to find happiness, before being snuffed out at the very brink of success. You should emphasise that theme. And I also don’t like the pacing.”

    (Trapped on the job with an unfriendly spirit, Reigen decides to buy himself time by telling it his longest, most thrilling, and most factually accurate story yet.)

    Summary

    "Ms. Doctor Ilkay?" Rita sounds almost nervous, quieter in a way that's a little unsettling. "Um. D'you think— are we friends?"

    "Kid." Fuck. What's there for her to say? Of course not, I think your boss and his boyfriend might be planning to crash the ship while we sleep? You give me a headache whenever you open your mouth? Why, just 'cuz you kept me from passing out from oxygen deprivation during a panic attack, well that's nothing a well-trained desert dog can't do?

    Rita's still looking at her expectantly. And she realizes the truth.

    "I don't know. I dunno if I've— I don't really know what it means to be friends with someone."
