It's Like Her Butt Was On Fire.

Eilam and Norie meet Unmei in the Crown--- who stabbed Eilam with a fork a month or so earlier. Norie scares the bejeebus out of her and causes her to run like her butt was on fire.

Norie Okana currently was more Lacrima than Norie, but trying not very hard in either direction. She wore a fanciful dress and she was looking forward to going out possibly with Eilam-kun somewhere today. She was a creature of simple wants and right now that want was to go to the arcade and probably enjoy some time there eating and watching flashing lights and perhaps trying to win something from one of the arcade machines.

She's arrived alone, however, eyes scanning the crowd as she looked around and decided to find a place to sit, a table somewhere in the middle as she sits down and she places her hands into her lap, closing her eyes just for a second as she waits, softly thinking over some things in her head.
Eilam Hisakawa 2017-03-20 06:45:10 73738
    Eilam himself wasn't actually doing anything /too/ busy. Instead he had pulled up a stool to sit lightly on while watching a pair of junior high-age students currently having a dance-off on one of the DDR machines. Norie's presence didn't really catch his attention, mostly because he wasn't actively looking for her, instead paying attention to the arrows that were crossing the screen. Seated on the stool as he was and leaning slightly on the large stave he had with him at all times, he was in no condition to even remotely try the game that required such activity. He would probably collapse rather quickly and cause a bit of a worry.

    Instead, he got to enjoy it perhaps a bit vicariously.
Unmei Tama 2017-03-20 06:52:47 73739
Unmei Tama was herself again, so she was feeling pretty good. For the first time in a looooong time she went to the arcade, a big grin on her face. She was going to order bread sticks! Okay, no, that'd probably be pushing it too much. She was going to order... some... an apple. She would order an apple. NO! Chips! She'd order chips, yes! Ugh, wait, no, chips were, blegh.

"I'll take some croutons, please. No, not a salad. Just the croutons." She then looked around and... oh gosh. It was him. The last person she'd seen before she disappeared into that house. Should she...

She put a hand to her forehead. It was the right thing to do, right? Slowly she inched over. "H-hey... you. Err... eh heh... stick a fork in you, cause you're done?" she tried, giving a weak laugh. "Eh... heh heh.... eh?" She was so bad at this. "I-I'm sorry about last time." She looked LOADS better. He did not.
Lacrima 2017-03-20 07:04:19 73740
Norie's eyes locked on Eilam. Ah.... if she could smile. She would. Very much. She feels she should be, but the feeling enough is making her comfortable. She's gotten up from her seat and is practically gliding over in that fancy dress when a girl steps up to him and she hovers somewhere behind her. Eilam can see her. Unemi can't. She listens to what she says, and that pleasantly neutral expression changes into a small frown. Then a harder frown.


"So you were the one that stabbed Eilam-kun, Unmei-san?" she "With a fork?" she doesn't actually mention the kissing part. At least not yet.

"--and I thought trying to.. 'Tee-pee' my house was the most silliest thing you'd try." she said in an uneasy stilted manner.

"Oh please enlighten me..." she says. " to what possessed you to stab a fork into one of the very, very few people who are important to me." she said. Oh yes.

That is the sound of someone who might kill you out back in the alley. Eilam might wanna say something if this isn't a future he wants to see actually happen.
Eilam Hisakawa 2017-03-20 07:10:23 73741

    Someone speaking to him caused him to turn and stare towards the one who was speaking curiously before he realized who she was. Indeed, she wasn't covered in chili and cheese among other mess, nor was she currently trying to orally assault anyone, himself included. And an apology? How should he even act about this... that was the question. He can't pretend it was nothing, normal people wouldn't be not upset, but he also knew what he was getting into with the whole setting. Well... to a point.

    He didn't sign on to get stabbed among other things but he did take a chance.

    "I..." before he could really speak, though, his attention wandered to the suddenly chill-sounding energy vampire behind the other girl and a bit of an amused feeling ran through him. "She did just attempt to apologize. As much as that hurt, considering I likely only have a couple more years to live anyways, I doubt stabbing me did much to hasten it."

    Of course, that was neither here nor there.
Unmei Tama 2017-03-20 07:13:29 73742
Unmei Tama yelped, turned and.... "Oh gosh agh scary demon lady!" And she was hiding behind Eilam now, as in holding his shoulder and peeping out behind it. "I'm sorry I'm so sorry it was an accident I wasn't myself and I didn't mean to he just tried to steal my magic from me and I stabbed him on instinct because I was trying to protect myself I'm so sorry I'm so so so sorry please don't kill me and dump my body in a river!"

Oddly... specific. But judging by the way she was looking at Norie, she believed the girl could, and would, do it.
Eilam Hisakawa 2017-03-20 07:14:42 73743
    Eilam adds rather casually as she mentions stealing, "Separate, actually. I was under the belief that it was causing your... erratic behavior."
Lacrima 2017-03-20 07:27:27 73744
Noire Okana listens to Eilam. The amused look, and the explanation of 'only a few years to live' made her /almost/ giggle, which would had probably come out as rancorous evil laughter had she let it. "Ah. You keep calling me demon. Misnomer. First off." she says, as she leans in. "I am La Vampira. That is 'A Vampire'." she says. "Calling me a demon infers I was always a horrible abomination and not undead, because once upon a time I was a human." she says flatly.

She purses her lips and lets herself grow neutral. "However. It seems Eilam-kun wants to accept your apology. So. Perhaps I will not kill you and dump you in the river or bury you in the woods or send you to sleep with the fishies." she says. It should be pretty clear to Eilam now she's just hamming it up to teach the girl a lesson rather than make an actual threat. She does walk over to Eilam and places an arm around his and gently looks up at him. "Are you watching people play the dance machine?" she asks softly.
Eilam Hisakawa 2017-03-20 07:36:18 73745
    When Norie finally mentions what he was doing, he turned to glance at something before grumbling, "Seems I missed what the actual results of that match was. I was rather curious who was going to win." But the next two participants were already on their way up. An elementary school-aged girl and a highschool-aged girl. They talked briefly and settled on a medium-difficulty song which began to start, a poppy anime tune of sorts. "And accepting her apology... not so much, but I did put myself in an awkward position. I suppose you are a bit lucky, though, Unmei was it?" At least that's what Norie called her.

    "In your lack of control, I am sure you recall, you were quite hungry for much more than food. Were I a bit more tired at that time, or perhaps a bit more lonely myself, I might have simply gone along with it knowingly. But I suppose that is not who I am in the end... it is good you seem to be better."

    Then back to Norie he offered a hand, "Did you want to try the dance game? I doubt I could join you even on the easiest of difficulties without getting painfully exhausted."
Unmei Tama 2017-03-20 07:38:06 73746
Unmei Tama paled considerably. "I... I wasn't... I..." She hugged herself slightly. "I wasn't myself. I'm sorry. I... I've gotten it all fixed now. Thanks to Mamo and Kun," she mumbled softly. "I'm... I'm so sorry. And you were right. It was my magic making me do it. But I... couldn't... give it up then. I needed it. Mamo and Kun gave me a replacement for now. So... So I'm good. Without the... side effects. At all," she said sheepishly.
Lacrima 2017-03-20 07:51:25 73747
Norie Okana lips upturn, almost, just a bit in her usual neutral expression. Almost smiling, almost, as she looks at Eilam-kun, taking his hand. That ring is back on her hand. It was one of the first things she put on when she got back into her body proper. "I know." she says. "And do not feel obligated or feel bad you cannot." she says. "...but rather, would you like to watch me try then?" she asks. "As you know, dancing is a hobby of mine. I'm quite sure I could get on the scoreboard." she insists. She perhaps, then coyly asks...

"How about a kiss for luck, hrm?~" she asks. Just a slight bemused tone to the request.

She looks back down to Unmei though as she mentions two names. "....ah. Mamoru and Kunzite." she says. She head tilts and then squints.

"You had magic? Then why were you so ... afraid of me." she says confused.
Eilam Hisakawa 2017-03-20 08:17:27 73748
    "Unmei... I am not upset with you, at this point, there is nothing to apologize about, other than perhaps covering my clothing in blood and your food. I did what I did in an attempt to help you out, partially because you did admit to being magical. I was only recently introduced to magic, as a concept, and... I know others like you whose emotions can be altered as a result. I took the chance out of respect for their conditions, knowing you might very well freak out." In fact, he raised up only to step forward and attempt to lightly hug the girl.
    "I mentioned the kissing bit... just to let you know you should consider being safer if you can, somehow. Others might not have... tried to help you in that circumstance." Hug working or not, though, he did nod at Norie and attempt to hug her after(and kiss the side of her forehead gently, since much more would probably cause a bit of a ghast at the arcade, Japan wasn't the largest on PDA after all). ...especially considering Unmei facehuggered Eilam last time and that was probably talk enough. "It would be fun to see you beat others. In fact... I could offer a prize? To you and the others. King of the hill. You keep playing, in succession, and after five rounds if you win every time you get it, if not they do?"
Unmei Tama 2017-03-20 08:30:24 73749
Unmei Tama squeaks and looks up meekly. "I-I never said I had strong magic. I-I was actually... pretty low tier. I guess. All things considered. A-and I don't have any now b-but... but Kun and Mamo know where I am... And you're kind of incredibly terrifying..." Then...

"Wait. Are you two dating?" and then paled. "I made out with the boy friend of terror girl... I can't be this unlucky... I really can't... can I?" She then blinked and nodded. "Yes! Err, scary lady. You should go challenge those people playing now. I bet you can win." Yes. Get out of here, scary lady.
Lacrima 2017-03-20 08:34:51 73750
Norie Okana accepts the hug and the kiss on the cheek. She seems to drift off for a moment, even at the chaste cheek kiss. A comfortable feeling that she knows should make her happy. Which is enough for her right now. She looks to Unmei and raises a brow.

"Perhaps..." she says with a coy expression to the dating comment. "I like to let people think what they want. I will tell you that Eilam-kun is one of the few people in life I know I 'love'." she says quietly. "Which means a lot, coming from someone who cannot feel it." she says.

"Oh, if I cared about that. You'd been dead much more longer ago." also she says with a tsk.

She looks toward's Eilam-kun. "Perhaps, that sounds fun." she says. "Though. I will win of course." she says absolutely confidently.
Eilam Hisakawa 2017-03-20 08:46:42 73751
    He didn't comment on any of the speculation. He had told her to focus on Natsumi after all, so any of this was for her to decide if she wanted that. "Well, if you think you will win, by all means. And if you do win, I will even let you pick an additional prize. I mostly want to see you show off and have a bit of fun." And with that, he stepped away towards the machine and when the current song finished, he spoke up.

    "As a bit of fun, I am going to offer a small prize. For the next ten tries, anyone who can beat my friend here at the song of their choice gets this roll of yen." And with that he holds up a roll of some amount of money. was hard to say how much. "She dances ten times in a row, or however long it takes someone to beat her, then life carries on. You good for it?"

    There certainly seemed interest. What self-respecting teenager wasn't interested in winning a wad of money?
Unmei Tama 2017-03-20 08:55:34 73752
Unmei Tama stared. She was a little tempted to try it. After all. Teen. Money. She grinned and then nodded. "R-right. I ummm... good to know you love him. Won't stab him or anything ever again. I promise," she said with a nervous chuckle.

"So, err, I... ummm, I should really get going. You two have fun now, okay?" she said with a grin before running out the door like her butt was on fire.

She was totally going to go see Yuzu and talk about how she was almost eaten by a vampire.
Lacrima 2017-03-20 09:07:20 73753
Norie Okana purses her lips. "Why do I get the distinct impression she thought her butt was on fire." she asked bemusedly.

She looks to Eilam-kun as she neutrally nods a bit. She gives a soft bow to the others and she gets straight to work, as it were. Getting onto the dance machine as she began to dance against competitors, one by one. Her moves were graceful and quick, she was fine dancer when she was human, becoming something inhuman has only let her become much more graceful but quick all at the same time. She's probably making an utter mockery of the other contestants as she keeps in time and always hits 'Perfect' on the mark.

It's like she didn't need the kiss for luck~
