It was in the early morning before they prepared to go to the Kanda Shrine which was being owned by the mother of both Haru and Sora.
Haru was very surprised when he learned that his mother owned a shrine and he also understood why the location of his apartment was quite near to that shrine. It made him quite surprised, but when he thought that Sora and Megumi would wear a shrine maiden costume, he felt that it was worth it to repair the shrine and he had money and it was better to use it rather than let it lay in his account.
There was a lot of change after he had gone on a trip even though it was only five days in this world.
First, Ritsu had helped him to buy this entire apartment building and made him the sole owner of this building.
It was quite easy to buy it since there were only eight people who lived in this apartment building.
Second, Ritsu had also brought a lot of GT Robots to this place to become the bodyguard in this apartment along with a lot of cameras, security devices, and a cleaning device.
Haru once again needed to be thankful for her and wondering what she wanted.
"Just bring me when you go to another world," Ritsu said. She felt very interested in another world and also wanted to be with him more.
Haru nodded and said, "Yes, I'll bring you." If it was a modern world then it was alright, but it would be quite difficult if the world that he went to was a place where there wasn't any internet.
The third was information from Uncle Ayase who had told him that he had gained a lot of money from gold trading.
This time it was a holiday for three of them and they had decided to visit the Kanda shrine since Sora had asked him to repair this shrine.
"Is it really alright to repair this shrine?" Sora asked since she was a bit worried that Haru would spend too much money.
"It's alright. I also want to see both of you in shrine maiden uniform," Haru said with a serious expression.
Sora and Megumi were speechless at this moment.
"It's really alright, his money won't change too much even if he uses it to renovate a temple," Ritsu said.
"That's good," Sora said with a sigh of relief.
"So you want to become a shrine maiden?" Haru asked.
Sora thought for a while and shook her head. "No, it's better to let someone take care of it since such a big shrine is a waste to not use it." She looked at him and said, "The money from a donation can be used to take care of the shrine."
Haru nodded and said, "If you have thought that much then I don't need to worry."
"Don't you want to become a priest?" Megumi asked.
"Me? Priest?" Haru raised his eyebrow.
Megumi nodded and said, "Don't you work as an Omnyouji? Isn't it good for you to have your own shrine?"
Haru turned into silence since it had been a while since he met a ghost. He had only met twice and one of them was very dangerous.
"What's with that expression? You don't have the interest to become a priest?" Megumi asked.
Haru shook his head and said, "It's too early to say since I have only repaired the shrine because of Sora."
"I didn't have that much of an interest in becoming a shrine maiden, but I'll employ someone to take care of it," Sora said.
"What about a special day such as a new year?" Megumi asked.
Sora shook her head and said, "The shrine might not be popular and there might not be people who are willing to come."
"Well, let's talk about it after I have repaired the shrine," Haru said.
They nodded and it was better to talk after everything was done.
The location of the shrine was quite close and they were walking from the apartment building to the Kanda shrine.
They walked into a very tall staircase before they arrived at the shrine
Haru frowned when he saw the shrine for the first time.
It was very old and very dirty.
However, even though it seemed to be old and dirty, the condition of the building was very good showing that it was made from very good material and might have a century of history.
Haru thought that this shrine only needed to be painted again before it was ready to be opened once again.
One thing for sure that the land area of this shrine was very huge, and once this shrine was being renovated it wouldn't be impossible to gather a lot of people to come to this shrine to pray.
"What do you think?" Sora asked.
"It's good, how about we check inside?" Haru said.
They nodded and went inside to check the shrine.
Sora brought the key and opened the shrine.
Sora coughed since the dust was gathered inside the room.
Haru opened the door wide and also the window to make the ventilation better since he could see that it had been a while for this shrine to be entered by someone. He looked around and saw a picture of his grandmother and grandfather from his mother's side, however, he didn't see the picture of his mother here.
Then suddenly Megumi took a broom out of nowhere and started to sweep the room. She noticed the gaze of everyone and said, "I'm a bit uncomfortable since it is too dirty."
They nodded and decided to clean the shrine since they were on holiday.
Ritsu took her phone and called the GT Robot at the apartment building to send out the cleaning device.
Haru who was cleaning then suddenly pushed something and made something drop on the ground. He took this thing curiously and saw the picture of his mother there who seemed to be smiling holding him as a baby.
Haru felt a bit complicated before sighing. His chest was quite uncomfortable and suddenly he heard a voice beside him.
"Haru, you're alright?" Megumi asked beside him.
"Nothing, I'm alright," Haru said with a smile.
"You're crying," Megumi said.
Haru wiped the tears in his eyes and said, "No, the dust is too thick and enters my eyes earlier."
Megumi looked at him for a while and hugged him. "I'm here alright."
Haru caressed her back and said, "Don't worry, I'm not sad or anything. It's just I miss them somehow...." He shook his head and said, "Let's continue to clean."
"Alright," Megumi said.
Haru cleaned the picture and put it inside his zipper space before continuing to clean up the room and decided to renovate this shrine.
