Speak Angry Words, And You May Hurt

Momo has some words with Kukai, and he has his own with her. It doesn't seem like either went away truly satisfied with themselves.

Momo Akatsuki stood across the street from the hospital, staring up towards a specific window. She couldn't go back to Sachiko's side yet, because she still had to settle the score. She'd promised after all. That didn't necessarily mean she couldn't still come and stare up at the exact window she knew Sachiko was behind.

After a very drawn out moment of pink eyes staring upwards she closed them and lowered her head, chin against her chest as she heaved a little sigh. "I'm terrible at this. I promised I'd get them, and I haven't even seen any of them. I don't know how to look for people. Do you go and yell there names or whatever in the street? Somebody'd tell Reiko or Roy or Biv and then I wouldn't be able to do anything...". She opened her eyes and lifted her head, looking along the street itself.

It had been several days since Kukai had been able to get free from life. Practice, patrolling, keeping himself entertained - but he did remember, every day, about the hospital, and whom was asleep in one of the upper beds. He'd come more often when Sachiko had gone in first, but he came less often these days. It hurt a lot, every time.

But today he's passing in front of the hospital, intending to go up and look in on her, see who's around, and see how she was doing. He was at least going to continue doing that while he hunted for Lacrima.

A feeling perks up, first in Daichi, who tugs on Kukai's collar and points across the street. "Hey, Kukai... we know her, right?" Kukai looks up for a moment and sees Momo, raising one hand...

Momo Akatsuki grasps the crystal hanging at her throat, and utters "Chroma Prism Pink, Transform!". Suddenly she's Prism Keeper Pink and glaring at the person she'd seen across the way. She'd seen him before, and now she knew who he was. The Sky Jack guy. The one who kept telling Sachiko things she didn't need to hear yet. Things she wasn't ready to hear. Things that made Sachiko hurt.

Needless to say, he was one of the names of Prism Keeper Pink's list. She stood there, waiting for him to come while she looked to make sure nobody had seen her change. Thankfully the only person looking her way was an old man who was squinting to start with, and occasionally veering towards a tree.

Kukai blinks, then leans back, as Momo shifts forms, flashing bright pink and glaring at him angrily. Just at the moment he wasn't entirely sure what was going on, but his hackles were raised at those angry eyes. Still, though. "Ah... Hey, Pink! How... how're you? What's going on?" He has a bad feeling like he knows what's about to happen, but that still doesn't mean he's going to initiate a fight, much less against a member of one of Virtue's newest groups, a group he personally considered under his training and protection.

He looks up at the hospital for a second, then back at Momo, pulling at his collar nervously, his hand sliding behind his head. "Something wrong?"

Prism Keeper Pink lifted an accusing finger, punctuated by an actual animated camera person appearing by her shoulder. Tripod legs and a lens eye as it glared, one of the tripod parts lifting and extended in and out as if pointing angrily as well. Something never really seen with one of Pink's little camera things. "You made Sachiko hurt! You told her stuff she wasn't ready to hear! And I'm going to hurt the people who made her hurt because she hurt too much!".

She stamped her foot and crossed her arms, the little camera just going into a standing tripod position as she glared angrily towards the boy. She wanted to see what he had to say before she tried to wipe him off the face of this sidewalk.

Kukai started as Pink pointed at him, leaning back. Oh, well, crap. This is bad. The little girl with magical powers is really very angry with him because she was... uh. Making Sachiko mad? What in the world could she be talking about, Sachiko was out cold upstairs! "I didn't make Sachiko hurt, I did everything I could to protect her! And I told her the truth because I was hoping it'd help her get better! You know what she was like, sometimes she didn't know the real world from her fantasies!"

Changing right now was maybe not the best thing he could do, but... "Daichi, Chara Change!" Daichi nods and vanishes into Kukai, and a hairband appears across his head with a big yellow star on one side. It won't be the equal of a fully powered Prism Keeper, but it's fast enough to keep him away from her attacks hopefully and not be offensive. "Come on, you're acting crazy!"
Momo Akatsuki 2016-07-28 06:46:22 49815
Prism Keeper Pink pulls her wand from nowhere and starts jabbing with it too, the little camera appearing right in front of it and moving closer and closer towards Kukai with violent jabs. "Are we any better? We're just fantasy! I'm a little girl who's girlfriend was eaten by a vampire and who has little wings! She just needed to escape, and you took that away from her and showed her the film in the camera!".
Kukai Souma 2016-07-28 06:52:36 49816
Kukai glared down at Pink as she starts jabbing at him with the camera wand, walking over towards her and pointing his finger at her. "And what, I was supposed to let her dive off her balcony towards the ground and kill herself early? Or try to fight Lacrima on her own and get even MORE hurt than she is already? It's crazy, crazy, crazy, but it's real, and we have to do what we have to so we can make it one day at a time!"

He stops near her, crossing his arms, looking down at her, more angry than worried now. "And don't you tell me about trying to help her escape! I kept every single one of her escapes intact when I could! But how many of them were gonna end up with her getting torn to pieces, or hurting herself? And how dare you tell me all I was doing was hurting her!" He sounds kinda mad. "All I wanted to do was help her! I was trying to protect her, dammit!"
Momo Akatsuki 2016-07-28 06:54:49 49817
Prism Keeper Pink 's little camera glares at Kukai, an inch from his face as the girl herself stands behind it with a furious look on her face. "You could have protected her without ripping her shield away! And you know as well as I do she'd have /never/ fought that thing. She thought it was her friend!". Pink stamped her foot angrily, little face twisted up in total fury. "I'll be going after her next!".
Kukai Souma 2016-07-28 07:18:30 49818
Kukai rolls his eyes and throws his hands up. "I can't get through to you what she was like BEFORE I met her! You think she was bad when you knew her? She was damaged the whole time! I was still trying to help her and now I'm getting crap from - look, you know what, I'm done."

He shakes his head and starts to turn away. "And Lacrima has every odds of picking you to pieces. You don't go after her without the others."
Momo Akatsuki 2016-07-28 07:20:54 49819
Prism Keeper Pink drew her wand back mightily, like a schoolteacher with a yard stick but from a distance. The little camera leaned back on its tripod right behind Kukai's head and as Pink's wand flew forward, it head-butted him right in the head and then *POOF*, pink smoke. Her magical girl outfit exploded into the same smoke and she turned on her heel with an angry, but satisfied grunt.

As Momo Akatsuki walked away in the opposite direction, nobody saw the tears glinting pink at the corner of her eyes.
Kukai Souma 2016-07-28 07:31:27 49820
Kukai is naturally fast, and even faster Chara Changed with Daichi. But the little camera is magically powered, and he's in close. The camera bops into his head hard, sending him tumbling down, and he lets out a noise, grabbing his head with one hand as the pink smoke fizzles away.

One eye closed, rubbing his head, watching Pink walk away. Somewhere in the back of his head a checkmark goes up on a newly made list. Maybe it'll fade away before he decides to call it in. At the least, he doesn't feel like going up to see Sachiko anymore. With someone like Pink around, she's probably fine. He gets to his feet and decides it's time to go... anywhere else.
