Tux From Last Night


If your senpai and their college buddies take you out on the town in honor of your birthday before they go on holiday, when you get home, the very first thing you should do is text Sailor Jupiter from your vigilante phone. Right? And then /answer texts from a teacher/. Seriously.

Kamen-san TXT: sorry if i'm interrupting you

Kamen-san TXT: you don't have to answer right now if you're busy

Kamen-san TXT: 1) just fyi the thing that exploded in the park was not ours, i checked

Kamen-san TXT: 2) you should make friends with madoka-chan she needs people to talk to about scary things

Kamen-san TXT: 2.1) not that i'm the boss of you it would just be nice

Kamen-san TXT: 3) thanks for helping bring me to the doctor last week (that was last week right?)

Kamen-san TXT: 4) i could really use a ready way of contacting you guys this is a little awkward
Makoto Kino 2015-07-31 02:36:38 5910
Jupiter TXT: no need to apologize! just glad you're ok

Jupiter TXT: you are ok, right? you had me pretty worried

Jupiter TXT: well, all of us. sailor moon was really worked up

(Between this text and the one that follows there is a somewhat longer delay compared to the previous ones.)

Jupiter TXT: what happened in the park? do we need to keep an eye out?
Mamoru Chiba 2015-07-31 02:48:12 5912
Kamen-san TXT: wait which time in the park because if it was last week, saa~ you should ask mercury she was there

Kamen-san TXT: if you mean last night, it was some cube thing fell out of the sky and there was a huge brawl for it, i was just waiting to see if anyone needed mopping up after. i just thought maybe it was the thing i cant spell rn b/c it was super powerful

Kamen-san TXT: that park is turning into bad news

Kamen-san TXT: oh btw im fine ty you guys are the best
Makoto Kino 2015-07-31 02:59:10 5914
Jupiter TXT: ok

Jupiter TXT: shouldn't have happened. I can't believe I showed up late like that

Jupiter TXT: thx for helping sailor moon, but don't forget to take care of yourself too!

Jupiter TXT: and geez, it really is. what's with that?

Jupiter TXT: evil should knock it off already >_<
Mamoru Chiba 2015-07-31 03:13:09 5917
Kamen-san TXT: its ok it all worked out fine

Kamen-san TXT: sailor moon is super super important

Kamen-san TXT: SO IMPORTNAT

Kamen-san TXT: was just too last minute. tying to be more caeful now someone said if you care enough to protect someone then they care about you too probably so being careful is best

Kamen-san TXT: right after i told someone else that hahaha

Kamen-san TXT: sry for mking you worry
Makoto Kino 2015-07-31 03:25:21 5919
Jupiter TXT: you don't have to tell me

(Why does it sting to have him tell her how important Sailor Moon is? It's something that she already knew, and yet--)

Jupiter TXT: just don't make us worry again.

(Another delay between texts.)

Jupiter TXT: sure you're ok?
Nephrite 2015-07-31 03:33:55 5920
Sanjouin TXT: Chiba. Do you have a moment to talk?
Mamoru Chiba 2015-07-31 03:41:11 5921
Kamen-san TXT: i'll try not to, omg its not like i like eating asphalt

Kamen-san TXT: oh yes i am just

Kamen-san TXT: some kids who graduated last year

Kamen-san TXT: took me to pregame my bday, im fine

(There is a significant amount of staring at his normal phone, and cautiously, Mamoru switches up from the burner. The text back to Sanjouin is meticulously edited.)

Chiba TXT: I can try, sir. I'm a bit under the weather.
Makoto Kino 2015-07-31 03:42:53 5922
Jupiter TXT: pregame?

(A pause, while comprehension dawns.)

Jupiter TXT: ...are you drunk??
Nephrite 2015-07-31 03:48:01 5923
Sanjouin TXT: I thought as much. Heard a disturbing rumor about you being involved in the tragedy at the park.

Sanjouin TXT: Did I hear incorrectly?

Sanjouin TXT: Or did another rabbit need saving?
Mamoru Chiba 2015-07-31 03:55:28 5924
Kamen-san TXT: um

(delay)

Chiba TXT: No rabbits. Just in the wrong place at the wrong time. I dont remember anything about it though sorry

(delay)

Chiba TXT: Dislocated shoulder was easy to fix, slept for a couple days after. im glad school is out haha

(that meticulousness certainly didn't last long)

Kamen-san TXT: a little maybe but i drank lots of water they cant fool me
Makoto Kino 2015-07-31 03:58:41 5926
Jupiter TXT: that explains it

Jupiter TXT: when is your birthday??

Jupiter TXT: or is that the kind of thing I shouldn't ask? I guess it's a little weird, huh ^_^;
Nephrite 2015-07-31 04:01:24 5927
Sanjouin TXT: You don't remember anything at all? Are you absolutely certain?

Sanjouin TXT: Do you actually not remember, or do you just THINK you shouldn't?

Sanjouin TXT: I know this sounds odd, but if you can remember anything at all, I need to know.

(slight delay)

Sanjouin TXT: For staff reasons.
Mamoru Chiba 2015-07-31 04:08:37 5928
Mamoru, in the state he is in, is quite touched by both Makoto's and Sanjouin's texts.

Kamen-san TXT: nah its not weird its nice. aug 3, but i gtg visit my parents so i wont be around.

Chiba TXT: nothing at all. woke up on a friends couch w/ a rly sore shoulder and a massive headache. i didnt even know what happened until they told me. something about drugs and gladiatiors?? people died im kind of glad i dont remember
Makoto Kino 2015-07-31 04:13:52 5929
Jupiter TXT: oh, ok!

Jupiter TXT: guess I don't need to tell you to have fun n_n

Jupiter TXT: take care while you're traveling!
Nephrite 2015-07-31 04:16:19 5930
Sanjouin TXT: Gangsters. Gangsters, not gladiators. Are you quite certain you're alright?

Sanjouin TXT: I know that your grades have been slipping as of late, but I hadn't expected you to fall so far so fast.

Sanjouin TXT: Some might wonder why a model student has been attracting so much trouble this year. Fallen in with a bad crowd, perhaps?
Mamoru Chiba 2015-07-31 04:25:51 5931
There is a lengthy delay for Makoto. In fact, Mamoru answers Sanjouin's texts first.

Chiba TXT: gangsters doesnt make any sense. kids had injuries from weapons that gangsters dont carry and besides they were inflicted by the unschooled, from what i could to put togethre. i said i wasnt feeling well >:| and yes i got 99s on two of my exams you dont have to rub it in, god

Chiba TXT: anyway no i dont fall in with anyone and if that is a diss on kino its uncalled for, she is a sweetheart, idc what stupid rumors say about her getting in fights

Chiba TXT: sir.

Kamen-san TXT: :) ty. im not leaving town i will just be occupied. but ty.
Nephrite 2015-07-31 04:34:31 5932
Sanjouin TXT: You really think gladiators make more sense than gangsters? Ancient Roman warriors came back from the dead to accost a park in Japan?

(He sends the text before he realizes that, with the right magic, that is actually a thing that could happen.)

Sanjouin TXT: Alright, fine. Gladiators. I'm not here to argue semantics. If you have evidence of them, I'd certainly like to see it.

(Too sarcastic. Shit.)

Sanjouin TXT: I'm actually serious. There are strange things out there nowadays.

Sanjouin TXT: Anyway, I wasn't referring to Makoto Kino. Perhaps you should spend more time around her, in fact, as I'm not constantly hearing that she's in the hospital or out of school.

(Come to think of it, though...)

Sanjouin TXT: Is she alright? I haven't heard from her at all since I returned.
Makoto Kino 2015-07-31 04:38:24 5933
Jupiter TXT: ah gotcha!

Jupiter TXT: well, TAKE CARE ANYWAY

Jupiter TXT: don't make me have to fuss at you
Mamoru Chiba 2015-07-31 04:44:56 5934
Chiba TXT: i would but she doesnt like me much. but she does come to my study group, she showed up the other day. she's fine. you should text her shed be glad to hear from you. anyway i didnt mean roman gladiators whats wrong with you!! i mean like battle royale. like they were fighting each other. my friend got me out of there just in time apparently. none of the other people remember anything either, its really messed up.

Kamen-san TXT: hahaha. ill be fine. and of course ill show up if im needed.

Chiba TXT: wait what kind of strange things
Makoto Kino 2015-07-31 04:58:36 5935
Jupiter TXT: I know

Jupiter TXT: we should be able to handle things for one day, tho

Jupiter TXT: so don't worry
Nephrite 2015-07-31 05:00:21 5936
Sanjouin TXT: Tomorrow, perhaps. I try not to make a habit of texting students after midnight. It can give the wrong impression.

Sanjouin TXT: And very well, not Roman gladiators. I'll take your word for it. Though, Roman or not, a battle royale that went unnoticed by the police for so long is a strange thing. Wouldn't you agree?

Sanjouin TXT: No one remembering anything either. There have been several events of this nature recently, yet no one seems to care a whit.

Sanjouin TXT: Those are the 'strange things' I referred to.

(Loaded pause.)

Sanjouin TXT: I'd wager you know more about them than you're letting on.

(Confrontational, certainly. Risky. But with the energy he has -- energy on par with Makoto -- there's a good chance he's making the right call. Even if he's not, given the nature of these texts, it's likely Mamoru won't remember much in the morning anyway.)
Mamoru Chiba 2015-07-31 05:09:44 5937
Kamen-san TXT: come on, you can always HANDLE it without me, but with my luck the day i dont show is the day one of you gets really hurt in the process

Kamen-san TXT: its ok. i dont always show. i only show when i know i need to be there. i can tell, its a thing. so its cool. i am sobering up a little and i realized its three in the morning i am so sorry. sleep well!

Chiba TXT: stranger things in heaven and on earth, dreamt of, phlosophy, got it

Chiba TXT: well i tend to think its a good idea to let the specialists handle that kind of thing

Chiba TXT: so maybe tmrw after you text makochan you can explain to me if you are a specialist, haha

Chiba TXT: meantime i am going to go drink a lot of water and go to bed ok?
Makoto Kino 2015-07-31 05:11:22 5938
Jupiter TXT: haha, it's ok

Jupiter TXT: good night! you sleep well too
Nephrite 2015-07-31 05:22:03 5939
Sanjouin TXT: Specialist -- of a sort. I'm sure you understand that, in matters like these, discretion is of the utmost importance.

Sanjouin TXT: We shall speak again soon.

Sanjouin TXT: Wait, lots of water? Have you been drinking, Chiba?

Sanjouin TXT: Never mind. I suppose it's none of my business.

Sanjouin TXT: Just take care not to stumble into any more bunnies and battle royales. There's not always going to be someone there to get you out of trouble.
Mamoru Chiba 2015-07-31 05:36:08 5940
Chiba TXT: sou ka

Chiba TXT: its ok, im not important. but if i can help, that's good too. haha what would give you that idea im sixteen thats illegal

Chiba TXT: goodnight
