White Day in the Dark

Alex meets with Sayaka. This is not what Sayaka was expecting out of the meeting.

It's been... well. It's been a bit moody of a month for both Alex and Sayaka, likely, after Valentine's. After how it ended. It's not as if Alex doesn't keep mostly to himself in the first place, but-- since then, the meetings between the two of them have possibly been a bit more strained. Lesser.

And now, in the later hours of the evening, Alex finds himself sitting on a rooftop of a certain apartment building, perched along the edge of the divider that provides safety to anyone who wanders there from falling down over.

For all anyone knows, he might have been there for a fairly long time already, too, just staring down at the surprsingly-ornate box set onto his lap -- with 'Sayaka' engraved on the top of it in Kanji. It looks rather like it came out of some stupidly expensive shop.

It's not the only thing on his lap. Atop the box lays his hand, holding onto a phone -- one of his many burner phones that holds Sayaka's number in it.

Eventually, he takes in a deep breath, and slowly lets it out again, for the purpose of steadying himself-- and with a lightning-fast motion of a thumb and faint tendrils of dark energy flowing into the device, a message is formed and sent out.

"Can you come to the roof?"
Sayaka Miki 2017-03-14 04:50:44 73384
    Sayaka had been pretty damn bitter since Valentine's day - a significantly meaningful day that had started out nicely enough, but ended up rather unpleasantly. She hadn't really kept contact with Alex since then, and indeed things had been strained.
    Although she had typed many messages to send to him, she had ended up deleting all of them, regretting that she might say something stupid. Anyways, it was HIS fault, and he was the one who had to apologize to her.
    But mostly, she didnt really expect to hear from him again, and Saya was already feeling negative after what happened between Kyouko and herself. May she really does just fall for the wrong people.
    So when she sees the brief message appearing on her phone, from HIM no less, she is quite surprised - more than surprised. And maybe a little concerned, enough not to simply ignore it. Heck, maybe he was in some kind of trouble, and she couldn't just turn her back when she promised to help him.
    And maybe, just maybe, it wasnt gonna be another unpleasant encounter. Still, she was feeling pretty nervous when she finally did slip out on her balcony and after transforming into Puella form, she leapt onto the rooftop.
    Because really, it's way easier than climbing up there in her civvies. She peers around, finally spotting him near the railing and draws a breath, just watching him quietly for a few moments, hesitant to approach, uncertain what she'd say or do..
Stahlritter 2017-03-14 05:05:10 73385
When the blue-haired girl does come jumping up with her Puella-getup on, Alex's eyes blink two times over at her in obvious surprise.

"...I didn't expect you to come up here like that," he admits, indicating both her method of coming to the roof and her choice of outfit. He pushes himself away from the railing at that moment, at least, since he knows well enough that she's never been incredibly pleased about him being so dangerously close to fatal falls. Or fatal falls to normal humans, anyway.

"...But who am I to talk, I guess," he murmurs then, as he makes his way slowly towards a bench. "When I keep acting like a character from one of those trashy vampire books they sell to--" He *almost* says 'to girls your age', but he immediately decides against actually finishing that sentence. "... What with the rooftop meetings and all."
Sayaka Miki 2017-03-14 05:09:18 73386
    Sayaka frowns a bit, arms folded as she eyes him warily, "I wouldn't have come at all if I didnt think it was an emergency. Last time, you made it pretty clear that you didnt really want my help anymore." her tone is still bitter, she sure can hold grudges.

    "Why'd you call me up here, Alex?" Her expression is stern, although secretly she missed him. It's been exactly a month afterall, since she last saw him. Worse, it's White Day, and he most likely didnt come here to give her anything, right?
Stahlritter 2017-03-14 05:20:27 73387
He stops in his tracks on that stern question there, and turns another blink at her. As he turns his body to facing her, too, the box will probably become apparent again, too. "...I mean," he murmurs, and then moves to step towards her, without all that much hesitation in the end.

And the box? It's held out towards her. "...For you," he murmurs, voice low and quiet, and his eyes sheepishly turn off to the side, avoiding eye contact.
Sayaka Miki 2017-03-14 05:27:16 73388
    Sayaka narrows her eyes as she peers coldly at him. She'd already had her heart broken once, and isnt really ready for this..But when he produces the ornately decorated box, her heart skips a beat, and she blinks in surprise and confusion.

    "Er..What is this? Why are you...?" Saya bites her lip, thoroughly confused. Because he cant really feel emotions right? So it's probably just some silly thing that doesnt mean anything.
    Still, Sayaka's expression does soften a bit and she reaches out to take the box a bit hesitantly. "You really..Got this for me, Alex? I..Don't know what to say. I mean, after the last time, I thought..I wouldn't see you again.."

    The last comment is said more softly, more uncertainly. And she dehenshins, realizing that this meeting was far different than she expected.
Stahlritter 2017-03-14 05:36:07 73389
"...It's tradition, isn't it?" Alex points out, sheepishly, right before she takes the box from him. "I mean. I am not that used to japanese traditions and holidays, but... That's what I thought, at least."

When she opens the box? She'll find several layers of assorted chocolates-- white, dark, milk, and with plenty there that have various different fillings too. "I am a terrible cook," he admits there. "But even if I was a passable one, I didn't really... have a kitchen available to me. I thought paying to get these made for you would be okay, though..."

His eyes shift to the side then with her last comment, away from her. "...I never said that would be the case," he points out, in a quiet murmur. "I never wanted to cut you off at all."
Sayaka Miki 2017-03-14 05:48:04 73391
    "Hunh..." She listens quietly as he explains the chocolates, rather gingerly openning them, not sure what to expect. "Umm these are..Really nice." They must have cost a fortune. And even if he's not a good cook, he clearly put a lot of effort into these. Sayaka would probably eat one right now, but. Now she feels kind of guilty about all the anger she felt towards him before.

    "I...Dont know what to say? Um..Thank you? I wasn't expecting it.." Still, does it really change things?

    She draws a deep breath as she steps towards the rooftop edge. Seems Saya's more foolhardy about safety when it comes to herself, while at the same time being overly cautious when it comes to Alex's safety.

    "No, I suppose you didnt mean to..Cut me off, but, you wont let me help you either, and that hurts."
Stahlritter 2017-03-14 05:55:41 73392
"I remembered someone saying the shop I got them from was very good, so I thought..." Alex murmurs, akwardly, leaving the rest of the sentence just hanging in the air for the time being.

His eyes do return towards her once she steps towards the roof's edge, and... says that. He lets out a sigh. "I never said I don't want your help," he claims, stepping after her, slowly, until he's standing right by her, along the roof's edge, barely a step from her. "...I just. Don't want to hurt you. By feeding on you."
Sayaka Miki 2017-03-14 06:01:02 73393
    She narrows her eyes, not looking at him as she slowly opens the box again, slipping a chocolate into her mouth. Mmm, delicious. It has been said that chocolate is a girl's best friend and Sayaka's really starting to believe it now, as the soft, sweet chocolate melts in her mouth, warming her a little.

    "Geez, now you're starting to sound like Norie-chan. She just refuses to let me feed on her, thinks that for a Puella it's potentially dangerous. But it's really not. As long as I have a supply of grief seeds on-hand, I'm fine. Besides. It'd hurt me more to see you die, than to make a small sacrifice to save you. Dont you understand?"
Stahlritter 2017-03-14 06:07:31 73394
%r"She thinks you could die if you get fed on too much," he murmurs, quietly. "...Specifically because you can't replenish what's been fed on without those... cubes. But it's even worse, isn't it?" His lips twist into a scowl, and he shudders briefly. "You might turn into a Witch. You said it yourself."

"And the thing is... I *liked* feeding on you, Saya," he admits, then, and in shame, he turns his head to look away from her, off to the distant horizon of the city. "Liked it too much. Part of me wants to do it again even when I'm already full. ... Do you understand?"
Sayaka Miki 2017-03-14 06:12:47 73395
    Sayaka nods slowly, "Yeah..There's always a calculated risk if I'm not careful. But I've survived for longer than most Puella Magi. Except maybe Mami-Senpai, and Kyouko-san. I..I'm a survivor too. And I'll be careful."

    She rolls her eyes at mention of Norie. "I know, she already lectured me, okay? But, the thing is, becoming a witch is more than just having your energy drained. It's more about losing hope. If I were to die happy, helping someone I cared about, I think I'd be okay with that, a lot better than if I died because the grief in my heart outweighed the hope I felt for having saved you, for having found something meaningful in my life. So in a way, you'd be freeing me from an even worse fate."

    And then he talks about *that*, and Saya's not as surprised as she really should be. "Heh, Norie-chan lectured me about that as well. And I already saw what over feeding did to Sachi-chan. But, why is that, anyway? Why are you addicted to my energy? Does it make you..Feel..Something?"
Stahlritter 2017-03-14 06:21:40 73396
"Even if you won't turn to a witch, I still don't wan't you to *die*," Alex insists, and his voice actually turns sharp briefly during the last few words of the sentence. He visibly frowns, and just stares off over the edge of the roof. "I could... never forgive myself. If that happened."

Then she asks that, and... well. He sighs. "I'm... not really sure," he murmurs. "There's... tastes. To people's energy. In a way, anyway. I think they're stronger with magical people, and yours..." He closes his eyes. "I drank so much of it when I did. And... nh. I'm sorry, I... really don't know how to explain it. I just... keep wanting. A voice telling me to just have... another taste."
Sayaka Miki 2017-03-14 06:30:03 73397
    Sayaka frowns, "I wont die, Alex, and neither will you. Why cant you just trust me on this? Sure, there's that risk but only if I'm careless. I mean, what's the alternative, do I just have to stand idly by while your condition gets worse, knowing that there's something I might have done to save you?"

    She steps closer to him, cautiously, "I mean, maybe by feeding off of me, you're able to experience good emotions, I dunno. I just..Wanna help, and if that's the only thing I can do to help you, to make you happy, to bring you closer to your humanity, then it's a risk I'm willing to take."
Stahlritter 2017-03-14 06:37:12 73398
"If I feed only a little, then maybe you won't, but..." Alex bites at his lower lip, and turns his eyes further away from her for a moment when she steps closer to him. "I... I'm afraid I might just. Not stop, if I start again. You remember...? It took me all I had to stop the first time. I just... I don't want to risk it. Even more so if there's... other ways for me to feed. Feeding on people who at least deserve a beating."

"I'm just saying..." He lets out a heavy sigh, and then finally looks back to her again, sadness in his eyes. "...There has to be better way to help me, than risking me... killing you. Or worse."
Sayaka Miki 2017-03-14 06:44:30 73399
    Sayaka sighs, hugging her arms. "I dont know, Alex. It's all I can think of, right now. And maybe, time's running out for you and there aren't any better solutions, so please just trust me when I say I wont let that happen. Maybe we'll think of something better, something safer, but right now it's the best I've got."

    She considers, "Sure, you can feed on other people, but who is to say you wont overfeed and seriously harm them? At least I can recharge my energy. People like Sachiko cant. I've considered all the things that can go wrong, and I'm ready for it."

    She laughs a little, "Really, I've been in worse scrapes before, trying to save someone's humanity? It's really not as scary as it seems. At least just give it a shot? I just want to make my life meaningful. I just want to make you happy. Can't I at least do that?"
Stahlritter 2017-03-14 23:34:19 73400
"Time running out on what, exactly?" Asks Alex in counter of her. "I have been doing fine feeding on criminals or whatever-- I already told you before I have a system with all that. To make sure I don't... drain too much." Beat. "...It's easier to not get caught up in it when it's not... someone I know."

"You're wrong about the recharging thing, though," he points out then, with his teeth biting down at his lower lip briefly. "The energy that I drain... normally, it grows back on it's own. It's such a core part of people. But... Yours and other Puella? As far as I understand, it doesn't come back at all unless you use those cubes or whatever they are."

"And I'm..." His eyes start drifting away, to the side and downwards, off the edge of the roof. "...I'm fine with... not being happy. If it means keeping people safe. Including you."
Sayaka Miki 2017-03-14 23:42:25 73401
    Sayaka sighs, seeing some sort of logic in his explanation. With a tired shrug of her shoulders, she flops down on the edge of the rooftop, carefully setting her chocolates down next to them, already nibbling on the next one.

    "Fiiiine...If you wanna be stubborn, we'll try things your way. But I still wanna help you, somehow. I honestly dunno what would happen if my energy drained. If I was still happy, maybe I'd just..I dunno, fade away, die, before I could become a Witch, but I suppose we'd better not test that theory. However..."

    She draws a deep breath, "I still..Want to make you happy. and I'm not okay with you being like this. Like an empty shell. So there must be something I can do to make you happy. Because I..Care about you..." The last part is said softly of course, because it's such a silly thing to say out loud.
Stahlritter 2017-03-14 23:56:21 73402
"I know it wouldn't make me happy if you died," Alex insists, and after a moment, he decides to circle around Saya so that he cna sit down along the edge of the rooftop directly next to her-- on the side where he won't squash the box of chocolates with his butt, see. "...I'd feel. Guilty. Awful."

Her last words leave him silent for a while. IN the middle of some series of thoughts.

"Norie said..." He starts eventually, though he's a little hesistant with his words. "...It might be... possible... to find a way to return my emotions. Even if I don't return to human."
Sayaka Miki 2017-03-15 00:02:28 73403
    She glances back at him wordlessly, biting her lip and sighs. "Nooo, I suppose not. I was just being super dramatic and heroic." She laughs a little and shrugs, "Sorry. I guess I just want to save everybody and fix every problem out there, even if sometimes, a problem does not seem like it has a solution.."
    Sayaka frowns softly, "Even so, I believe that there is a good solution to any and every problem. Is that just wishful thinking? I dont think so."

    She peers at him curiously when he mentions Norie and groans..Ugh, Norie has managed to get on Saya's bad side more than once, and she doesn't have much confidence in any plan of Norie's.
    "Uh..How do you mean? Can..Can you even have emotions if you are not human? What crazy thing has she thought up this time?" Why she almost sounds..Bitter.
Stahlritter 2017-03-15 00:13:43 73404
"Saya," Alex says, sounding a bit firmer now whe nhe turns a brief look towards the bluenette. "Norie has... been in her state far longer than I have, and it has affected her as a person... very heavily. Please do not hate her for it. ... That does also mean that she knows my condition better than anyone else."

"There was... a certain thing she went through recently. She's still looking into it... studying it, but she... thinks it might be possible to..." He pauses briefly. "... To force positive emotions. It might hurt at first, but... She thinks it might be possible to... Get used to it. Return to them."
Sayaka Miki 2017-03-15 04:39:07 73427
    Sayaka sighs, "Yeah, I know..It's just.." she shrugs, "I guess sometimes it's just frustrating dealing with her, even though I try to be understanding. It's like, she's always judging me even before I have a chance to say something. And even when I'm trying to help her, she's mad at me."

    Sayaka grimaces, "Plus! She's responsible for your current condition, and for putting my friend Sachi-chan into a coma! Who knows what other damage she's done to other innocent people? And she doesn't really seem remorseful about it, but..."

    She grits her teeth, "I'll...Tolerate her, for your sake." she pauses a moment, glancing over at him curiously, "Umm, that sounds..Painful, risky even. How does one..Force emotions into another person?"
Stahlritter 2017-03-15 04:57:46 73429
"She is the reason I am *alive*," Alex points out, with his tone a bit sharper than before when he says that. "It's not as if she isn't tortured enough by what she has caused before without people blaming her for it too. She isn't the way she is because she *wants* to be."

All those words end with a grunt, but when he averts his eyes, it only lasts for half a second before he lets his eyes lay onto her once again.

"It is not a certainty either way yet," he says then, with a roll of his shoulders. "Like I said. She's... still looking into it. If it's even possible."
Sayaka Miki 2017-03-15 05:11:53 73430
    Sayaka grits her teeth and clenches her fists. The fact that Norie did the wrong thing for the right reasons never settled well with her and she just nods slowly, "I know, I know..If she hadn't saved your life then you would be dead by now. I just wish there was another way. If I was there, I could have healed you, and you could have been living a normal life now. If only she'd thought to seek out medical help..Any help. If....Only..Ugh..."

    She rubs her temples. It's too complicated trying to think of what might have been, coulda, shoulda, woulda. "Look, I'll try really hard not to blame her that much, it's just..Gonna take some time, and I just wish she'd ask for help once in a while.."

    And then there's more waiting. "Ugh, really? sooo, she has this vague theory, but she doesnt have any details? Where's she getting this information from, anyway?"
Stahlritter 2017-03-15 05:23:21 73431
"The fact is no one else was there," Alex says, now at least trying to sound gentler. "And for all she knew, I was seconds away from dying. ... For all I know, too... The memory of it is... hazy. I am mostly going off the knowledge of what parts of me are replaced with solid dark energy, currently. Either way... It's really no use crying over the past."

Her reaction to the further clarification on the 'theory' at large makes him sigh, too. "Like I said. She... is the most qualified in understanding all this. She is speaking from old experiences and newer discoveries both. The thing we all have to accept... Is that there's no magic, instantenous fix for something like this."
Sayaka Miki 2017-03-15 05:35:32 73432
    Sayaka's frown just deepens. She'd like to bring up the convenient fact that Norie 'didnt remember what happened', but decides to keep her mouth shut. She's a friend of Alex's, and it's likely he would never consider any sorts of ulterior motives. Besides, Saya doesn't want to upset him anymore than she has already.

    Very slowly, deliberately, she picks another chocolate, letting it melt warmly in her mouth as she ponders. "I...See. Well, I suppose it's something, but I'm sure not gonna wait around to see if this vague idea pans out. I still think my idea of finding someone to purify your dark energy and letting me heal the wounds in your body is the best idea."

    She smirks, glancing over at him, "And I wouldn't rule out the idea of a magic, instantaneous fix either. Or miracles for that matter. Afterall, we Puella are living proof of miracles, given that our powers are based off of a wish."
Stahlritter 2017-03-15 05:46:50 73433
He doesn't seem to be too intent on saying anything further on that particular subject matter if she isn't going to. The frown on her face doesn't go unnoticed, but he doesn't say anything on it either.

"Purification energy actively hurts me while I am like this," Alex points out then, with a wince at that thought. "There's... just as good chance that it alone will kill me. And even if it doesn't and does draw away all that dark energy... I don't know. I might die instantly just from the shock of my body - the human body - returning to it's wounded state." Beat. "...There's really no guarantee that purification will do more than hurt me, either, I suppose."
Sayaka Miki 2017-03-15 05:59:21 73434
    "Huh..." she sighs tiredly, staring at the street down below. "I know, we've been through this conversation before, but then I guess that's just a theory. Maybe it's too dangerous to test that one out, though."

    After a moment, she glances towards him curiously, "And then it feels like we just go in circles after that. Look, I promise I wont try and push myself on you, and try and get you to feed off of me, but...I dunno..I just feel so powerless. The only thing I can think of doing is just encourage you do more..Normal, human things, I guess? It was the only advice that Kunzite-san offered, and he seemed to think it'd help, but I dunno if I've really helped at all."
Stahlritter 2017-03-15 06:13:52 73435
"That's less about fixing me and more about helping me get by," offers Alex to Saya, with his head dipping down. And he reaches over with one hand to settle it upon one of hers, presumably held on her own thigh.

"If nothing else," he goes on, with a quiet sigh let out. "You have helped me feel less... alone, at least," he murmurs, and while he still keeps his hand on hers, his eyes slowly droop downwards. "After I turned, I... thought I would not be able to live normally anymore. Or with other people, for that matter."
Sayaka Miki 2017-03-15 06:23:38 73436
    "Well, I dunno. Maybe it's linked to this theory that forcing positive emotions on you can help 'fix' you too." she shrugs, and is a little surprised at the sudden, affectionate gesture. Still, Saya doesn't move, and is even a little uncertain on how to respond. So she just grabs another chocolate, seeming to enjoy them so much that the box is only half-full now.

    "Really? I mean..." she smirks, "When we're not arguing all the time? Well, I'm glad that I helped, if even a little. It's something at least. Doesn't make me feel quite so...Useless.." The last part is murmured softly.

    Saya chances a sidelong glance at Alex, wondering what's really going on through his mind right now. "Well, to be fair, hanging out with you has helped me to feel less..Lonely too. Even if I've said some stupid things about my feelings that probably aren't even returned anyway.." She laughs nervously then, suddenly regretting saying that out loud. When's she gonna learn to keep her mouth shut?
Stahlritter 2017-03-31 02:46:10 74331
"One step at a time, I guess," Alex murmurs quietly-- and he seems to be completley oblivious of the reaction that his touch to her hand seems to have illicited from her, too. But him being oblivious to what people think about him isn't exactly a new thing.

He does peek at her, and frown faintly. "Why would you feel useless, anyway?" He asks bluntly, then. "You're... surely more capable than I am. When it comes to these things. Supernatural things. You're more experienced in them than I am, for sure. YOu have the power to be a hero."

And then there's another bemused look with the words that preceed her nervous laugh-- his head turning to regard her more fully before tipping slightly sidewards in it's angle, blinking at her in bemusement.
Sayaka Miki 2017-03-31 02:53:31 74332
"Y-yeah.." she laughs nervously "Guess I'm a bit of an impatient sort of person in general though.
    She tries to casually place a hand over his, glancing sidelong at him with a faint smile. "Dunno, there are people I'm trying to help, including Norie, but so far, I've been unable to help anyone..What's more, sometimes I wonder if I should have made a more selfless wish. Maybe the ability to heal everyone's problems and not just the problem of one boy that I hoped to impress.."
    She seems to smile a bit more at the compliment, "Well, I've got some super strength, and my healing ability is something I'm starting to explore lately, maybe I'm just expecting too much from myself, maybe I'm jyst trying to take on too many problems. But somehow, it makes me feel good to help people, but only if I can be successful at it."
Stahlritter 2017-03-31 03:07:03 74333
"Some problems can't be solved instantly," Alex points out, with a slow shake of his head-- and then turns his gaze away from the blue-haired girl, for a few seconds. "...And some might be ones that can't be helped at all." Somehow, even if he is not very expressive to begin with, he comes off as if though there's some memory tied to that particular statement.

"You shouldn't worry about it too much, though," he suggests to her, then. "You're already doing what you can. Where you can. That's more than most people can claim."
Sayaka Miki 2017-03-31 03:12:34 74334
Sayaka Miki nods and smiles, "Yeah, I guess you're right. As long as I do my best, that's what matters right? And at least, I'm not feeling as lost as I once was.."
    She sighs, leaning back to peer up at the slowly approaching stars in the night sky now, searching for another shooting star.
    "I hope one day I can find a way to help Norie-san too.." she glances back at him, smiling, "But thanks, for telling me that."
Stahlritter 2017-03-31 03:24:15 74335
"That's a process too," Alex points out, in regards to the matter of Norie, with a sigh. "I wish. I could help her, too. But I know for a fact that's beyond what I can do-- I can't change fate like that.. But like I said. One step at a time." He turns the hand of his that she's taken, and without even really realizing it, gives her own a small squeeze before he draws it away.

"You shouldn't worry about me too much, either. Whatever happens, happens."
Sayaka Miki 2017-03-31 03:31:49 74336
Sayaka Miki frowns, "Why not? What's wrong about worrying for a friend?"
    She smirks at the gesture, warm blue eyes focused intentiy on his fir a few moments befire she looks away quickly.
    'I dont have a lot of friends and the ones I do have, all seem to be suffering some crisis or other."
    Sayaka laughs,"Ironic, I know. But that's how it is. So yea, I treasure every friendship I have, because I never know when I might lose 'em."
Stahlritter 2017-03-31 03:39:57 74337
"Mostly saying that because I'm *kind of* a handful," he goes on to say-- it might even come with a wry smile if it wasn't for the fact that... well. Vampire. "And I'm not really worth the trouble it takes to handle that handful, is all."

He starts lifting himself up from the sitting posture to stand up, even as he goes on to murmur, "Not that crisises aren't kind of part of friendships. It's good to keep hold of those, usually."
Sayaka Miki 2017-03-31 03:45:33 74338
Sayaka Miki nods and smirks, climbing to her feet to follow after him. "Yea, youre a handful, but you're kinda cute, and kinda fun."
    She grins and winks, "Besides, I'd be out if a job if I wasnt able to help people like you."
    She grabs for the box of remaining chocolates, not wanting to forget them behind. "But thanks again for the chocolates, I...Honestly didnt think you'd remember..Or.." she shakes her head, not wanting to say something would sound too cheesy.
