Yuuki has been busy trying to track down the Heart's desire Logia. Its nowhere to be found. Nowhere at all. Its very frustrating to the rookie Mage. She's been trying so hard to find that thing and prevent it from harming anyone else but, with no signs and no magical signatures to track, She's left more then a little flustered.

What does one do when they are flustered like that? They eat of course and a few hours of searching, Yuuki is ready for something. QUietly she walks into Midori-ya and makes her order. Its not too much. A hot drink, and a couple donuts. Moving into the dining area, she sits.

Minutes pass. She takes a sip of her drink but beyond that. She moves her donuts around a little but, doesn't eat.She doesn't want to. Even though her stomach is growling. She's being a little hard on herself. She shouldn't be sitting in the warm cafe nibbling donuts and sipping cider. No. She should be out finding that darn Logia before it hurts someone else. It just really bugs her.

Miss White has been out and about herself. Between meetings, exam prep, just general Eclipse things, and trying to squeeze in a hunt for a certain Logia she wants to dismantle?

Well, by now, she needs coffee. A side-alley trip, and then in walks a certain CEO. The young woman whistles as she sits down. No Nanoha today it seems!

With a slight sigh, she contents herself with said coffee and a few donuts as she relaxes. Her head soon goes to the table.

"Stupid...illusory...jerk!" she mutters, just close enough to Yuuki to be heard. Hannah's too tired to be cautious!
Yuuki Oshiro 2017-01-08 19:15:11 66523
Thankfully much of the place is empty. A loto f people are a little busy today. Or its just too cold to be out doing stuff today. There are a few people but those people seem too enthralled in their electronic devices to really be bothered.

Yuuki however, Is not on an electronic device. Her gaze goes over to the woman condemning an illusory Jerk, "OH umm. Hello Miss." She doesn't speak really loud. No. She is at least trying to keep her voice down. "Are you okay?" She asks softly.

The younger girl quietly takes a sip of her cider. Then she quietly looks at the donut in front of her. She takes a chopstick and pokes it. Not like she'd actually eat a donut with a chopstick but it just seemed more interesting then pushing it around with her fingers.

Miss White suddenly wakes up. Swiftly enough that she pretty much bangs her head on the back of the booth. Whap! There's a a grunt, and then she's whirling over to Yuuki.

"Wh...what do you...? Uhhh. Hi." Awkward. Cough. Sip of coffee. She needs a second, folks.

A breath, and she smiles. "Yeah! I'm fine kiddo. Perfectly fine, yup. Ignore me, I was mumbling about game. Yeah." She really can be an awful liar. A hand is offered over. "Name's Kasagami White. Miss White, please! Nice to meet you!" There's a definite pulse of magic around her. And what's more, Raging Tempest sits in her pocket. A little ping hits the world. Mostly hunting for a certain pink one's Device. But Yuuki's own might catch it.
Yuuki Oshiro 2017-01-08 19:34:07 66525
Yuuki looks at Miss White. "I know." She laughs a little. "My name is Yuuki Oshiro. We met here before. Nanoha-chan was here when we met. We were talking a little about my problems with," She pauses and whispers, "'math'?" She hopes thats enough.

Then she thinks a little. Miss White already knows she's a mage. She showed that before. She knows what she was told but, The damage was already done. What difference would it make if she redid it?

She decides to wait. Just in case things aren't as they seem. For now she simply smiles. "You seem a little on edge." She speaks softly. Then she picks up on the magical ping. She can sense it. Her gaze goes down to the pocket containing Raging Tempest.

Blink. Blink blink. Slowly, the frazzled head of one Hannah Sharpe gets it together, and that voice finally hits her. She has to dig, but the name finally comes up!

"Wait, Yuuki! Oh, jeez, sorry kiddo. I remember now. Ugh." She rubs her head and laughs.

"Voices don't always do it if I'm not paying attention. Sorry." A deep sigh.

Eyes close. She leans back, then pauses, and gets up. A second later? Flomp. Right into Yuuki's booth unceremoniously. Legs kick up on the other end of the booth.

"Honestly? Yeah. I am. There's been this thing running around. Messing with people's heads." Her fist clenches. "It got to...somebody real close to me. And I can't find it no matter how hard I look."
Yuuki Oshiro 2017-01-08 19:49:18 66527
That does it. Too much in the room. Too much information in a small room for potentially listening ears to pick up on. Yuuki's eyes close as the mathematical formulas begin forming in her mind. "Radiant, Magical!" She speaks The violet Midchildan circle forms underneath her as the spell builds. "Barrier!" Immediately the barrier extends out from her, dimming the area to a more greyish look. Within moments, they are alone in the barrier.

Yuuki smiles a little, "I know. I've been tracking it too. It had me under its control. Its a horrible thing. Anything that gives an illusion of having the thing they want the most only for it to be stripped away... It nearly killed me!" She frowns.

She sighs, "And then there was someone else. I think you were there for the aftermath of that one. I had it and it got away." She frowns. "I have a way to track it but its not been showing up anywhere."
Hannah Sharpe 2017-01-08 19:54:49 66528
Well that makes things easier. Miss White clearly isn't thinking straight! But Yuuki has things covered. She shoots a thumbs up, and is pretty much inviting head-to-barrier'd-table. A donut dissappears into her mouth. Nomf nomf nomf.

"You too? Tch. That stupid little! If it's gotten to the point it's risking people's lives, we definitely need to take that thing apart!"

She pauses though. "Share with R.T. Maybe it's out of range of your methods? Or..." Gulp. Her face darkens. "Or maybe it's gotten ahold of somebody else."
Yuuki Oshiro 2017-01-08 20:08:42 66529
She smiles, "Its a tracking device I use specifically for tracking lost Logia. It was made by Yuuno Scrya and its pretty much simple to use. It goes off when it detects the Lost Logia. Its how I knew where it was when I tried to blast it. The problem is it keeps vanishing and when it does, I can't track it. I've been seaching everywhere since then and its just not showing up."

Yuuki frowns a little. "It had me before it had your friend. It had my believing my daddy didn't die. That everything that has happened in the past few weeks... Months... That it didn't happen. I would see my daddy cooking and I would eat and taste the things he made. It was so good. In reality I wasn't eating anything. I couldn't hear Shining Star. I'd have dreams of a voice calling to me but It was like trying to call to someone in a crowded room where everyone was talking and it was drowning everything out.It was horrible."

She sighs. "I hope not. I really hope it hasn't gotten anyone else. That sort It could really hurt someone... Wait... Shining Star, What was that thing doing while I couldn't hear you?"

< It was syphoning ambient magical energy. You generate mana, Sister. All mages do. Even when you are not actively casting some magical energy flows out of you. That is what this device was Syphoning. >

"So this thing is like a parasite. It feeds off us until its caught."
Hannah Sharpe 2017-01-08 20:19:08 66530
Miss White considers. "Yuuki. I'm sorry." She adds simply. There's sympathy, and anger alike in her voice. Her fists clench. Messing with family isn't ok even in her book!

"That does it. That thing did you just like it did Haruna! We should..."

Blink. Shining Star, though, has some insight. "A little blood sucking insect is what it is! Yuuki. How about it? Let's work together to find this thing. If it's dissappearing, then it might be able to create pocket dimensions, maybe enter the Dusk Zone, or some other kind of dimension-drifting or teleportation ability. I can try to start tracking a few different ways it might be getting around, but..."

A wave of the hand. "There's lots of things and people that use that kind of stuff. Lots of filtering out false positives. We might just...might just have to catch it in the act again."
Yuuki Oshiro 2017-01-08 20:30:57 66531
She thinks and then smiles, "Yes. I think working together would help. I know Sakura and Tomoyo have been helping but Tomoyo is not a mage or anything. She's just a normal person whose aware of magic. Nanoha-chan and Yuuno-san both were there to help me. Looks like we are on our way to finding this thing then! When we find it though, I would like to get it into the hands of the TSAB if there are any on Earth."

She sighs a little. "This is all my fault." She sighs and looks down. "I was here when The logia appeared. When it did, Shining Star notified me and I went looking for it. Then it vanished. a few moments later I found this ruby necklace. I was going to take it to the police cause I thought it was lost jewelry." She frowns.
Hannah Sharpe 2017-01-08 20:41:18 66532
Hannah outright laughs. "Yeah. They're both good kids. I really wish they wouldn't get into danger like that, I can respect someone who wants to stop something like that Lost Logia."

A little frown then. "I wouldn't trust those over-reaching blowhards with something like that. Better that we get it into a lab, that turn it into as many little chunks as possible! I could take care of it better than them!" Miss White miiiight be leaning on her own ego here.

Reach, a pat on the shoulder. "Hey, not like you'd know it would just zoom off, right? Mistakes happen. You know what to look for now. Next time, we'll get it!" Confidence is supreme in her voice!
Yuuki Oshiro 2017-01-08 20:51:59 66533
"We can worry about what to do with it when we've caught it. That thing is nasty though. I'm scared to think about what would happen if it landed in the hands of someone not so good. So far the people it's affected had smaller desires. What if someone really bad got their heart's desire."

Yuuki frowns "we have to find that thing. Its going to really hurt someone. Also Why does it need all this excess magic. It can't be good. I mean look at what its doing to get it?"
Hannah Sharpe 2017-01-08 21:05:38 66535
For some reason, Miss White seems to seize up. The sudden thought of herself getting under that thing's influence...she shudders full-body. Who knows what would happen.

"Definitely...have to be careful then. Plenty of ambitious people around." Nope, this definitely isn't pointed right at herself.

"Yeah. Yeah we do. That's the thing I don't get. It either has to be on some kind of automated mode to collect energy. But where's all that magic going? YOu'd think it has to have an upper limit. Unless it's just burning it all when it creates the illusions. I didn't exactly have time to take good readings back with Haruna."
Yuuki Oshiro 2017-01-08 21:29:55 66539
Yuuki's mind goes a lot of places. None of them are good. "That thing is a threat to everyone. If its illusions get stronger as it goes, The entire city could be in danger soon." She frowns and looks around.

"This is really overwhelming. I'm not old enough to be dealing with this stuff!" She states feeling way out of her element. She's never faced this stuff before. Never fought much besides a simply Youma. Nothing that actually threatened the entire city.

She frowns and just shakes her head, "I'm sorry. I just don't know what else to do."
Hannah Sharpe 2017-01-08 21:49:46 66542
There's a big huff. "Great. Just when I thought I'd actually be getting some decent research done...well, gotta clean up garbage when you gotta. Hey. Maybe we'll learn something from all this mess! Hope we can pull something north of 'Life Threatening Magic Illusion Vacuume' out of this." That is the sound of an annoyed Hannah. Not even angry. She's a bit rage'd out after the thing went for Gull. Now she's sunk down to 'plotting revenge and revenue'.

But not enough so that she won't comfort the girl now helping her fight it.

"Hey, hey! What's with that whining, huh? Look." One finger goes up. "You're looking for the scum." Finger two. "You actively got a way to detect where it is from a specialist."

Finger three. "And now you're networking with other magical girls to stop it."

Arms fold. "What more could anybody ask, huh? Problems like this take time. So deep breath, eat, and then /think/. And rest too. Can't operate right if you're about to fall out."
Yuuki Oshiro 2017-01-08 22:03:15 66544
Yuuki frowns and slowly begins pulling herself together. "I... I'm sorry. I just am still learning how to deal with all of this. I'm still trying to get the hang of things. I am still new to all of this. A few months ago I didn't know there were real magical girls. I thought I was weird that I felt things sometimes."

She sighs and sucks it up. "OKay. We will keep working. I have my phone. I can give you my number. That way we can keep in contact?" She asks quietly.

< You are too hard on yourself, Sister. You have potential to be a good mage. It takes time. You are learning but it will not happen overnight.
Hannah Sharpe 2017-01-08 22:18:38 66547
Miss White chuckles just a bit. "Hey, not like I haven't been there. Lots of wondering if you're doing the right thing, if you're ever going to become strong, if you deserve having such a very special'll get over it. And from what you're chasing, I think it'll be sooner than later. Confidence! That's what a magical girl should have!" A fist hits her own palm!

There's a card handed over, and then phones!

"Got it. And hey. If you ever need help, let me know. My business trains magical girls, so, don't be a stranger huh?" Wink. Then she downs the last of her coffee. A stretch.

"We can do this Yuuki. Just gotta wait for our time to strike."
