Sakura Kinomoto was playing ddr! Yes it was an old, silly game and no one cool played it anymore. So of course she was playing it. It was good exercise and a lot of fun. She was alone for once, Tomoyo-chan wasn't there for once.

She finally made it, getting a high score! Not... the high score, but A high score. so close enough. She then walked to the dispenser and got a water, holding the cup firmly in both hands and taking a nice, long sip before walking to a table and sitting down, pulling out her phone and tapping away a few times.

    Mara was in the arcade, and seen the girl that was playing DDR, then shakes her head a little bit. She moves to stand up from the cabinet she was sitting at, letting the game end there. She smiles a little bit as she makes her way over to the girl that just got done playing it.

    Mara carefully sits down at the table that Sakura is at, bumping the table hard enough to knock over the other girls water. Then quickly reaches over to seemingly accidentally knocks it onto Sakura. "Oops.. I'm sorry." She says in a cold tone with a smile upon her face. She then goes ahead and sits down across from Sakura anyway.

Sakura Kinomoto blinked and looked up. She let out a eek as it was knocked onto her, quicly getting some napkins and dabbing at herself. Oh dear! such a mess! She then blinked and looked up at the girl, pausing. Why was she... oh!

She gave her the kindest smile. "Oh, there's no need to worry about it. Accidents happen," she said with a nod. "Did you need something, miss?" Finally satisfied she was mostly clean, she just smiled at the girl with that innocent, 'I don't believe you could be at all bad' smile. "Oh! Right! I'm Sakura Kinomoto, nice to meet you." She bowed her head politely.
Mara Brando 2016-12-06 00:02:12 62670
    Mara smiles innocently back to her, "I'm Mara Brando. It is nice to meet you too." She doesn't bother bowing her head in return as she just watches the girl. "I didn't really need anything, but I just seen how good you were at DDR.. Isn't that game a bit old?" She smiles as she leans back into her chair.

    "I should have brought my guitar, it would have been much better to play that than any of the dumb games in here... I can feel myself getting dumber just by playing them." Mare then smirks to Sakura, "You're pretty good at DDR, so that means..." She trails off there.
Sakura Kinomoto 2016-12-06 00:04:54 62671
Sakura Kinomoto nodded. "I guess. But it's really a lot of fun and just because something is old doesn't mean you can't enjoy it. I mean, games like chess have been around for centuries, but people still play them, right?"

She paused and her eyes lit up. "You play the guitar? That's so cool!" She blinked a few times. "Wait. If you don't like the games here, why are you here? You aren't lost, are you?" she seems genuine enough. "Oh, or are you waiting for some friends? I can keep you company if you like."
Mara Brando 2016-12-06 00:11:20 62672
    Mara shakes her head softly, "No, I'm not waiting for anyone.. I came to try the new shooter cabinet over there.. It sucks because it is like all the others.." She sighs a bit, "In fact, it is easier than some of the older ones.." She then stares at Sakura for a moment, "Chess requires far more strategy though.. More than any of the games in here.. Also, I would rather play that than anything in here.. If I had a chess board.."

    "Yes, I play guitar, and I usually play it in here, but I just didn't grab it on the way out of my dorm this morning." Mara looks into Sakura's eyes, "You're a bit dense, aren't you?" She seems slightly annoyed now..
Sakura Kinomoto 2016-12-06 00:16:42 62673
Sakura Kinomoto blinked a few times, nodding. "Oh. If you want, I could try it with you if you're lonely?" Still with that grin. "Wow, really? You're part of the ban? That's really--"

And then she said that and the smile began to fade slightly. "I... I guess I'm not the... smartest person around but... I wouldn't say dense. Is... something wrong? Am I bothering you?" And now she was confused.
Mara Brando 2016-12-06 00:26:34 62674
    Mara looks into Sakura's eyes, "You can't even tell that I was doing some things on purpose, and even said you were stupid indirectly.." She hangs her head lightly with a sigh. "People that take things positively like that get on my nerves.." She lifts her head back up looking into her eyes again.

    "There is just a part of me that makes me want to beat people like you into the ground to get you to realize this world isn't so soft.." Mara's eyes getting a cruel look to them, with a bit of a grin.
Sakura Kinomoto 2016-12-06 00:29:50 62675
Sakura Kinomoto stared up at her, her mouth falling open. This girl was threatening her! She didn't really know what to say. Her hand slowly reached up towards her throat, then pulled away. "I believe a positive outlook is the best way to go through life. Everything will definitely be alright. That's what my daddy used to always tell me." She even called him daddy.

"And... I know the world isn't soft. I know sometimes it's scary and... dangerous. But... that doesn't mean it's bad. Things have a way of working out eventually, even if they don't in the immediate." She glanced down at the woman's hands. "I'm sorry if you're suffering and going through some hard times. But... if you want to talk about it, I'm more than happy to listen."
Mara Brando 2016-12-06 00:34:38 62676
    Mara's grin widens into a wicked one.. "Oh... Oh... Daddy's little girl thinks there are ways of working out the bad things, hmm?" Mara starts to laugh a little bit as her eyes water up a little bit, but why are her eyes watering. "Little daddy's girl doesn't seem to understand that there are some things that can not be fixed.. Should I show her?"

    Mara stands up from the table, and pushes in the chair she was sitting in, "Care for me to show you outside? Heaven forbid that I start tearing things up in here just to make an example.."
Sakura Kinomoto 2016-12-06 00:37:14 62677
Sakura Kinomoto gulped and moved slightly away from her. "I... I'm not going anywhere with you. I don't trust you," she said softly. She tried to get up and pull away, shaking her head. She wasn't supposed to use magic here and, whoever this person was, she obviously didn't have...

Wait, did she? She paused for a moment and then looked at her curiously. Ugh, she wished she could send magic like Kero could. "I... I need to go home, anyway.It was... an experience meeting you. My daddy's waiting..."
Mara Brando 2016-12-06 00:42:53 62678
    Mara's wicked look didn't go away at all, "Oh? Are you going to run home to your daddy? I don't think your daddy can save you?" She is still standing up, waiting to see what the little girl does. "How about I give you a head start..?"

    Mara glances behind herself, not seeing anyone there. She moves her hands behind her back, and there is a faint red light that shows for a brief moment. "I will give you a count to ten to see how far you can get."
Sakura Kinomoto 2016-12-06 00:48:53 62679
Sakura Kinomoto took a step back. She then gave a sigh and looked to the side. "Very well." and then she ran! Dang, she was a fast girl. However... once she got outside she smiled. She held out her wand as she ran down a small alley.

"The key that holds the power of darkness. Reveal your true form to me. I, Sakura, command thee under convert. Release!" She smiled and then drew the float card. This was going to be easier than she thought. Avoiding a fight was always better. She didn't want to hurt the other girl. She'd need to warn people, though. "Float card! Make me weightless!" Before she started running up the wall.
Mara Brando 2016-12-06 00:59:17 62681
    A bit of light comes from inside of the arcade, and well.... That ten seconds was more like five seconds as Mara walks out of the doors like she is on a mission.. "Oh where art thou little girl?!" She shouts as people step away from her worried. She is carrying a great axe after all, and just about anyone would be worried seeing a girl in armor wielding that thing.

    Mara walks over to the alley just in time to see Sakura running up a wall, "Oh? Another magical girl?" She looks up watching her, then... JUMP! Mara flies right by Sakura and lands on the top of the building, then looks over the edge, looking down at her. "Oh... Aren't you a cute thinking you can run up a wall to get away.." A wicked grin comes across her face as she points her great axe at Sakura.
Sakura Kinomoto 2016-12-06 01:01:09 62682
Sakura Kinomoto looked shocked, her eyes going wide. That girl was a... she skidded to a stop and now she looked... disappointed in her. She put her hands on her hips. "I thought you were just a normal girl! You REALLY bully other, non-magical girls? That's just so... so mean!" She was SCOLDING her.

"Magic isn't supposed to be used that way! It's supposed to be used to help and protect people!" She drew another card. "I... don't want to fight you, mara-kun. But... if I have to..." Could she disable, without hurting her? If she started to make a move to attack, she'd strike. "WOOD! Contain her!" Vines would strike out, attempting to bind the woman up. Moments before float turned off and she plummeted back to the ground with a shriek.
Mara Brando 2016-12-06 01:08:42 62683
    Mara sighs a little bit, "No... I only bully normal people, but I do something worse to other girls with power.." She grips the haft of her axe firmly, as she gets a more serious look.

    Mara sees the vines of wood coming at her. "Huh?!" She jumps dashes to the side as the wood just barely misses her. "Interesting.." She hears the shriek and quickly jumps off the side of the building, back down into the alley. She spots Sakura, and on her way down, she swings her axe at the ground devastating a small area around it to let Sakura know what she is dealing with. Mara seemed to handle her landing and the swing of her axe just fine. She pulls her axe up, and hefts it over her right shoulder. "Don't tell me you are weak, and have no strength... I will give you a minute to call some friends if you have any.."
Sakura Kinomoto 2016-12-06 01:11:38 62684
Sakura Kinomoto cringed, hitting the ground and groaning. Slowly she got to her feet and wobbled a bit. She stared at the axe, slowly backing away just a little bit. But... then she stopped and... slowly lowered her hands.

"I... I have a lot of friends but..." She drew another card. "They're here, with me. I don't want to have to hurt you, miss. Are you... strong?" she had two cards in her hand now, trying to decide between them. Thunder or freeze. What if she DID hurt the girl. "I don't want to hurt you, after all..."
Mara Brando 2016-12-06 01:15:55 62685
    Mara grins a little bit, "So, you don't need help, I get it... I understand..." She looks at the cards she is holding up. "Let me ask you... Do you think you can take a hit from me, and not be put out of commission for a bit?"

    Suddenly, Mara dashes forward seeing the cards, and figures the girl is going to waste the minute anyway.. She swings her axe to her left from her right. She doesn't used the bladed edge of the axe, but uses the flat side of it to try to smack Sakura off to the side like she is nothing more than a bug. This hit would easily put an average human in the hospital, but definitely nothing fatal.
Sakura Kinomoto 2016-12-06 01:19:49 62686
Sakura Kinomoto yiped and then drew a third card. "THROUGH!" She yelled. And then... Mara would feel nothing. In fact, the axe would go CLEAR through the girl, as would Sakura. Sakura raced right through her before solidifying and letting out a gasp of relief. "I really need to thank... errr... ahem."

She frowned and eyed the woman. "Snow!" Snow pelted out from her wand, enveloping and trying to bury the woman in a thick snow fall. She kept backing away, holding her wand in both hands. Oh crud she actually might die. No no no! She could do this. Whoever this woman was she... oh boy.
Mara Brando 2016-12-06 01:44:44 62687
    Mara growls as her axe goes right through the girl, "Why you..." Mara lets the weight of her axe spin her around before planting her foot to stop herself. She sees the snow... "Really...?" She doesn't even try to avoid the snow. The cold seems to do nothing to her as she stands there with a grin on her face.

    For a few moments after being covered with the snow, Mara suddenly bursts from the mound of snow. "You are annoying!" This time she swings with the bladed edge of her great axe, swinging it downward at Sakura as she quickly closed the gap between them. There was a lot of power behind the swing, yet not all that accurate, so it was likely coming down on her left arm towards the outside of it. It is still sharp and can do considerable damage still, specially with the power of her swing.
Sakura Kinomoto 2016-12-06 01:49:15 62688
Sakura Kinomoto yiped, pulling back and then screamed. She drew a card and then... "LITTLE! Shrink her down until she calms down!" she yelled. The axe was coming at her and then...

Mara was falling? She didn't feel like she was falling but the ground was coming up to hit her in the face. It only stopped a few centimeters before her and then--

Wait. No. She'd look up and why was Sakura suddenly the size of godzilla? Why was the little bit of snow that covered the ground suddenly five stories thick and why was she suddenly able to practically build a mansion in the foot print she was standing in?

Sakura knelt down and sighed, staring at the much smaller woman. "Now. are you calmed down? I don't want to have to hurt you, but I can't let you keep attacking me. The magic will wear off once you calm down and stop attacking people, okay? so just try to stay out of trouble. You still have your axe so you should be fine as long as you don't try and fight any dogs or cats. I'm going to leave now. hopefully next time we meet we can be friends and you'll be a lot calmed!" She'd then turn and start to run off.

Oh mara...
Mara Brando 2016-12-06 01:55:50 62689
    Mara finds herself getting smaller, and smaller... Mara lands on the ground, and looks up to Sakura with narrowed eyes, then shouts, "I can still hur.... This is ********!" She shouts at Sakura. She starts to slam her axe into the ground making sparks, and definitely putting mini craters in the ground... That axe still could easily hurt, but not do nearly the damage it could.

    "I can still blow you away with magic! You hear me?!" She yells some more looking up at Sakura with a wicked glare, no matter how small. She is mad... definitely mad. "I am going to hunt you down and chop you into kitty food!"
Sakura Kinomoto 2016-12-06 01:58:35 62690
Sakura Kinomoto completely ignored the girl... not that she could hear her. She was just so mad! She wondered what could possibly have made her such a mean spirited person. She'd need to talk with the others about trying to help her, she just seemed so gosh darn angry.

No matter, she was sure in the end they'd be good friends. She didn't even have to hurt her or anything. To make matters worse she... kind of hummed as she SKIPPED off. Oh yeah. Mara was gonna kill her.
