Upon hearing Himeko’s prayer, I began convincing myself to grant it for her. Never would I be petty again when it comes to her little sister. Even if Itou continued seeing me as an eyesore or a nuisance, I decided to just smile it off or ignore it completely.
As long as she didn’t go overboard, I would be her beloved sister’s amiable boyfriend.
I had no idea if Itou also heard her words since I was only focused on Himeko at this time as I waited for them to finish their prayers.
After we’re all done with offering our respect and praying to the deity enshrined in it, we then went to one of the priests to purchase Ema plates; the wooden plaques where we were going to write our wishes, and hang them on wooden boards specifically for it near the main shrine where we did our prayers.
