Mio hurried up the staircase and down the hallway, ignoring the dimming and brightening of the Camera Obscura's filament as she passed by the hands reaching out from underneath the doors. They had been present underneath the doors in the downstairs hallway as well, but the camera seemed to be able to dismiss them just as easily as it would any other ghost, making them more of an inconvenience than an actual threat as long as she was careful not to let herself be grabbed.
Her conversation with the voice had shed some light on tonight's hauntings, at the very least enough to know to avoid the maids' quarters, but still...she wished she hadn't spent so much time in the quiet little study. She wanted to get back to Zetsu, to make sure that he was safe. Even if the voice had confirmed that there was nothing in the bedroom to do so, she couldn't help but worry. She couldn't help but worry that something might have happened in her absence, that he might have disappeared.
Even if he was still asleep, even if he still wasn't responding...she needed to see that he was still there. She needed to, but...still...she found herself hesitating as she reached the door to her bedroom, almost not wanting to go inside out of fear of what she might find. She needed to see that he was still there, needed to know that he was okay, but at the same time she was afraid of what she might find inside. Or rather, what she might not find. It took her a couple moments of staring at the knob and starting to reach for it and withdrawing before she was able to work up the courage to open the door, quietly sliding inside and shutting the door behind her as she began scanning the room for the plantman.
