    Sayaka had not visited ECFH in a while, and she was curious to see how things were going lately. Of course she was anxious about running into a certain Puella of whom she was no longer friends with, but she was also looking forward to visiting her friends; Mamoru, Kunzite, Naru, and Rei whom she'd recently reconnected with. Saya was also curious to find the blue-haired Senshi that she had heard about before - Sailor Mercury. She was supposed to be smart, right? Perhaps she might have an idea of how to help Alex..

    Although Kunzite and Mamoru had had no issue with her arriving on the balcony, she was still a bit nervous of the idea, and chose instead to use the front door, knocking cautiously at the front, wondering if anyone was home today.
Ami Mizuno 2017-04-07 21:34:05 74492
Ami doesn't spend a lot of time at the frathouse, but when she's here it's usually on business. Today's business, it seems, is practicing her confectionary skills.

Wait how is that business?!

Nevertheless, Ami is in the kitchen, wearing a pair of black tights, a grey sweaterdress, and an apron, carefully mixing chocolates into a double boiler in the hopes that she isn't ruining her planned cupcakes.

At the knock to the door, the bluenette glances over her shoulder, then back to her confection, then back over her shoulder. "Can someone get that?" she calls.

But ironically, no one else is here. Oh right, that's part of why she's here right now: she knew they'd be out, and she'd have a chance to try this without anyone to judge her during, and plenty of testers for after. "Crap."

Ami takes one last wistfull look at the double boiler, then quick-times across the carpet in her socked feet to open the door. "Hi," she says, then turns to rush away from the door in the hopes of making it back to the kitchen before everything is ruined.

Only she has to pause half-way and turn back, blinking in surprise. "You have my hair," she notes to the still-open doorway. "Cool." Then she turns to finish the rush back to the kitchen.
Sayaka Miki 2017-04-07 21:39:37 74493
    Sayaka hears an unfamiliar voice calling from the other side. But perhaps she has seen her during an occasional visit to Seishou Public, or more likely, when her parents pushed her into Cram school. She already knew that Naru was pretty smart and had helped her in study sessions. However, Ami Mizuno was practically a legend in various academic circles. At the cram school at least, Saya had heard the name of this genious creep up more than once.

    "Heh, a fellow bluenette!" she grins, "You must be Ami Mizuno-san..Am I right? I thought I saw a poster of you advertised on the front window of the cram school my parents ended up sending me to. So you're a friend of Mamoru's I gather?"
Ami Mizuno 2017-04-07 21:43:23 74494
Ami turns and glances at Sayaka, then grins a little nervously. "Ah, hah. That poster. Is so dumb. I don't know why they made me do that. Yeah, that's the cram school I used to go to. Honestly, I probably never should have stopped. I might go back next year." Awkward.

"Mamoru-kun is a friend, yeah," Ami agrees as she fusses with her chocolate a little more. "He's my best friend's boyfriend, actually. Is how I know him. Which ... probably makes me being here look awkward. Uh. He kinda lets us all hang out here. A lot."
Sayaka Miki 2017-04-07 21:46:28 74495
    Sayaka chuckles a bit, tilting a curious head at Ami's awkwardness. "I dont think it's awkward, I think it's great that you're a super genious who's basically a legend for the rest of us struggling students. I know I totally looked up to you when I studied in that school.." she sighs, "My parents made me go there because I was failing classes, it's sooo hard though. I wish school could come easily to me.."

    She smirks at the mention of Mamoru's girlfriend. Oh, she must be talking about that clumsy oaf. "Hmm, Usagi-san, you mean? Yeah, I've met her a fews times.." Sayaka still hasn't figured out why everyone thinks she's sooo great. But then, she doesn't know her that well.

    "Hmm, oh, by the way, my name is Sayaka Miki. Nice to meet you, Ami-san!" And she offers her hand to shake.
Ami Mizuno 2017-04-07 21:53:32 74496
"Usagi-chan, yes!" Ami says, pleased Sayaka knows her. She turns and smiles, then clicks off the boiler. Grabbing a hot-pad, she lifts the cooking chocolate out of the double boiler and pours it into a pyrex pan already lined with cocoa powder and some kind of crust. A spatula to get it all in, then she sets it all back down and smiles at Sayaka.

"Miki-san," she says, greeting her. "Ah, it's nice to meet you!" She bows, awkwardly, rather than shaking hands, then turns back to her pan. "Do you like fudge brownies?" she asks, as she picks up the pyrex and moves it to the oven. "I'm experimenting with something new."
Sayaka Miki 2017-04-07 22:25:12 74497
Sayaka Miki just arches a brow at Usagi's name. "Yeah..That's the one." well she has never doubted Mamoru's judgement before.

    She peers curiously at Ami's cooking. So theres more to her than brains huh? She smiles, "Ooh those look pretty good! Are you sure I can have some? Whats the occasion?"

    Of course she's learned theres never a special occasion here and someone is always cooking something.
Ami Mizuno 2017-04-07 22:31:42 74498
"Just experimenting," Ami says as she glances at the oven. "They should be ready in about 15 minutes." A pause, then she amends, "Well, they should be out of hte oven. Ready in about twenty if you don't mind eating them still gooey and warm. I don't cook much."
Sayaka Miki 2017-04-07 22:36:01 74499
Sayaka Miki smirks, "I'm not much of a cook so I'll let you be the judge. I can wait, and, thanks for your generosity!"

    She peers around but realizes this sailor Mercury might not actually come. Sailor senshi are pretty mysterious right? Probably has some alter ego.

    "Sooi, do you kniw the sailor senshi? I was looking for sailor Mercury, thought I might find her here.."
Ami Mizuno 2017-04-07 22:36:48 74500
See, now, that is cause for even Ami to be nervous. She blinks in surprise at the question, then clears her throat. "Ah, why do you think you'd find her here, of all places?" she asks, uncertainly.
Sayaka Miki 2017-04-07 22:43:12 74501
Sayaka Miki chuckles, realizing how odd that sounds. "Well actually, I know that this happens to be a meeting place for senshi, and I happen to be friends with both Tuxedo Kamen-san, and Kunzite-san who hang out here, so I figured it'd be the best place to find her.."

    She hesitates, unsure if its wise to tell a non magical girl about the magical world but given that most people who hang out here are part of Mamoru's court..

    "You know, maybe you can help me, you're probably just as smart as she is." she grins, "That is, if you're willing to help."
Ami Mizuno 2017-04-07 22:48:46 74502
Oh geeze, this just gets more and more awkward. "Ah," Ami replies quietly. "Yes, Tuxedo Mask and Kunzite are both uh ... friends. I don't think I'm as smart as Sailor Mercury," Ami says, not sure whether she's propping herself up or putting herself down, "but I do know her. I can probably get a message to her if you need."
Sayaka Miki 2017-04-11 21:07:38 74604
    Sayaka smirks, apparently oblivious to Ami's awkwardness. "Cool! Guess we got something in common! Well..." she sighs peering around, "I wonder if I should just wait and see if Sailor Mercury makes an appearance, but then, she's probably super busy. I wonder.."

    She glances towards Ami, arching a curious brow, "Is she really smarter than you? From what I've seen in school, you're pretty much a genius! So dont be so hard on yourself! Maybe you can help me with my problem if she cant.."

    With a sigh, Sayaka plops down on the couch, apparently feeling comfortable enough and familiar enough to do so. "Hmm, okay, here's my message: I dunno if Mercury is already aware of this, buut..I have a friend, Alexis Raskoph..Ummm, well kinda a friend I guess.."

    She bites her lip, blushing faintly as she looks away, "Well anyways, he's kinda in a bind, he's uh..Infected by some kinda dark magic that turned him into a psychic vampire, and I'm worried that he's running out of time. Since Mercury's so smart, I'm wondering if maybe she can help him out. I mean, if she's not super busy with other stuff, but..It's kinda serious. I dunno how much time he has left before he loses himself completely to the darkness or if there's anything that can be done, and..."

    Sayaka sighs tiredly, "I just feel so helpless to stop, whatever is to come.."
Ami Mizuno 2017-04-11 21:58:54 74605
Ami--Mercury--tilts her head a little, arching a brow just faintly. She listens, and at first doesn't respond at all. Then, very slowly, she sighs a little, then steps forward to sit down next to Sayaka.

There, she sits silently a little while longer, carefully considering her words. But eventually she settles on, "She knows. Alexis came to her about two months ago, and asked her to look into his condition. She's been working on it since. In fact, the weekend school let out, she left for Paris, to chase a lead on energetic vampirism that she thought might be credible enough to warrant investigation. She came back with some knowledge, but isn't yet ready to try any tests. Dealing with living creatures is difficult, especially in that world, because if you mess up ... there's no second chances."
Sayaka Miki 2017-04-11 22:13:42 74606
    Sayaka bites her lip, glancing back at Ami. "Huh..All the way to Paris? Another Vampire?" she laughs, "That's so...I dunno, how can that be connected from so far away? But..I wonder what were the results of that investigation?"

    She arches a brow, peering curiously at Ami, "Furthermore, I wonder what happened to that vampire? I mean..She didnt capture it, and is experimenting on it, is she?" and why is she suddenly calling it an 'it'? Brr..

    "Sooo..." she sighs, "I guess the answer is, "Wait some more", huh. But, I guess she knows what she's doing, right?"
Ami Mizuno 2017-04-11 22:17:25 74607
"Well," Ami considers quietly, trying to decide how to put it, "It's connected because the vampire whose powers he has got hers from somewhere in Europe, too. Or at least, that's the assumption. It could be wrong, but none of their powerset match a Japanese vampire. Anyways, she didn't find a vampire there. She found knowledge there." A slight smile, then she explains, "Knowledge is way more powerful than any vampire. But yeah, I'm afraid that's your answer. Just wait some more. She's doing everything she can to help him."
Sayaka Miki 2017-04-11 22:21:08 74608
    Sayaka blinks, "Wait, you mean..Norie?" her eyes narrow, dammit, why does everything always go back to that annoying girl? She grits her teeth, nodding slowly. "I..See. But, what do I do in the meantime? Is there anything I can do? How long do you think I need to wait..?"
Ami Mizuno 2017-04-11 22:29:36 74609
"Sorry, I'm not really aware of a 'Norie'," Ami says quietly. "Sailor Mercury doesn't tell me everything." She tries to smile, but she's really not very good at lying. Her nervousness likely shows, if Sayaka's paying any attention. "In the meantime? Just be a good friend to him. Help him out when he needs it. Don't let him feed off of you; that's dangerous. But remind him that he's a good person; hold him accountable if he starts acting out. And if things get very bad, seek help. Kunzite and Tuxedo Mask first, who can both get a hold of Sailor Mercury in an emergency."
Sayaka Miki 2017-04-11 22:33:11 74610
    Sayaka nods slowly, noticing Ami's nervousness. "You seem to have a lot of faith in this Sailor Mercury. I hope I can meet her someday, she sounds like a cool person." she smiles, "But you're a really nice person too, Ami-san!" Sayaka tries to give her an encouraging smile, wishing she'd relax a bit.

    "Thanks for all your help, I guess it's a bit stressful, having me dump all this stuff on you, I mean, I know how scary it is being a civilian, but being aware of the magical world.."

    As for mention of Norie, she shrugs, "Hmm, well Norie-san is the one who uh...Infected..Alex-kun. But apparently her condition is not as advanced. What i'm worried about though, is that if I dont let Alex feed on me, then he'll feed on someone else, and while he tries to only feed on people he thinks deserves it, who knows if or when that might get out of hand? I dunno, at least knowing where he's getting his energy needs from makes me feel just a bit less nervous. But Norie seems to think it's even more dangerous for him to feed off of a Puella Magi than anyone else."
Ami Mizuno 2017-04-11 23:02:22 74611
"She's ... everything I wish I could be," Ami replies, of Sailor Mercury. "And also everything I'm glad that I'm not." Because that's not a confusing contradiction.

Just then, the oven beeps, and Ami's eyes widen. "Oh no! I was cooking!" She jumps up and rushes to the kitchen, socked feet skidding on the linoleum. "Oh no oh no," she pulls open the oven, then hisses at the warmth and grabs a hot pad.

Out come beautiful brownies, which she carefully places on the counter. She closes the oven, then reaches up to turn off the oven, then stares at her brownie pan worriedly. "Do you think they're okay?"
Sayaka Miki 2017-04-11 23:12:20 74612
"Huh.." she tries to figure that one out, scratching her head. "Soo, do you secretly wish you were a magical girl?" she grins and winks, knowing it's something that she secretly wished for, for a long time.

    Then suddenly the bell rings and Ami runs around getting nervous about her cooking. "Ooh.." she follows her to the kitchen and chuckles, "Sorry, I'm not much of a cook myself, but.." she inhales deeply, "Smells delicious! I'm sure it tastes good too! Dont think you burnt 'em too much, honestly.." But there's only one way to find out!
Ami Mizuno 2017-04-11 23:26:58 74613
Ami frets over the brownies for another moment, then sighs and mumbles, "Cool. They need to cool." She grabs an egg timer and sets it for five minutes, then turns and grips Sayaka's arms suddenly. "Miki-san, you have to stay and try them. If they're awful, I need to know before the boys get home," she explains. "Promise you'll stay."
Sayaka Miki 2017-04-11 23:30:04 74614
    Sayaka blinks at the brownies, trying to resist the urge to just grab 'em and stuff 'em all in her mouth. "Oh..Oh right! They need to cool. Yeah. Haha!" she laughs at herself and her greedy tummy. "I'm sure they'll love them..I suppose I could stay for a while." she smiles. "Wow, you're so thoughtful, baking all this stuff for everyone.."
Ami Mizuno 2017-04-11 23:36:24 74616
Ami makes a face at that description of herself. "It's not ... thoughtfulness," she argues quietly. "I just want to learn to cook. I made boyfriends for my br--" pause, blush. "I mean. Brownies. For my boyfriend. For valentine's day this year. And it was a lot of fun! We broke up over it, but I really enjoyed the exercise. So I thought I'd try again."

She sighs and turns back to the mess she's made, then leans over the counter a little. "Anyways, some days I wish I wasn't a magical girl. Some days I'm glad I am. Normalcy would be nice, you know?"
Sayaka Miki 2017-04-13 04:19:06 74622
    Sayaka arches a brow as Ami gets tongue-tied, and she cant help but giggle a bit..But that smile gradually turns into a soft frown when the shy bluenette mentions the outcome of that day. "Geez, that's too bad. And on valentine's day too?"

    Well one thing's for sure, this girl has a lot of optimism, in spite of her shyness. Sayaka smiles and nods, peering back at the brownies as they wait for them to cool down. "Hmm, they smell really good! I wish I could learn to cook so well. I just seem to burn everything I try to cook!" she makes a face..

    Then pauses when Ami admits that she is in fact a magical girl. "Ooh..You're a magical girl too? Really?" Wait, who would that make her..?
Ami Mizuno 2017-04-13 04:24:56 74623
"Well, no, it was about a week after White Day that we broke up," Ami replies thoughtfully. "It was just Valentines' Day when I made him brownies, which set things in motion towards all of that." A shrug, and then Sayaka asks about her being a magical girl, and Ami's eyes widen. "Uh." Blink. "Uh." Blink. "W-well."
Sayaka Miki 2017-04-13 04:34:58 74624
    Sayaka thinks back to how her valentine's day went with Alexis. It was hardly..Romantic. Just weird. And awkward. And..Kinda ended on a bad note. Then there was white day, where he tried to make up for Valentine's. Which also ended with arguments and weirdness.

    She has a silly-funny look on her face as she remembers. "But at least there were good chocolates.." she murmurs aloud, as if to herself. Then bursts out laughing.

    "Um...Haha! Sorry, I was just thinking about how my own Valentine's day went. It was kinda..Different?" she clears her throat. "Anyways..."

    About that whole..Magical girl thing..Sayaka arches a curious brow at Ami as she fumbles. "Oh. Right! I guess it's a secret. Don't worry, you dont have to say anything more. I mean, it's not really my business anyways. I mean, I guess some people have reasons to keep their identity secret. I dont really. I'm Puella Magi Sayaka. Nice to meet you!" She grins.
Ami Mizuno 2017-04-13 04:50:31 74625
Ami blinks in surprise at Sayaka, then smirks amusedly. "I should have known," she mumbles. "Miki Sayaka," she repeats the girl's name. "Puella Magi Sayaka. Blue hair, cheerful." There's a soft sigh while Ami considers the other girl for a moment, then shakes her head.

"I'm sorry, Miki-san. I kinda lied to you," Ami explains quietly. "I don't like doing it, and it's kinda part of why being a magical girl sucks. But ... I never know who knows what or whether they'll be out to hurt me or my friends through me ..."

Ami takes a deep breath, then admits, "I'm Sailor Mercury."
Sayaka Miki 2017-04-13 05:07:42 74628
    Sayaka arches, "Hmm? Have you heard of me, before? I mean, I guess I'm familiar with some of the Senshi and..Shittenou..But, for some reason I dont think we ever crossed paths before." It could have been because she hadn't visited the ECFH much, after the whole thing with a certain red head..

    She then arches a curious brow at Ami's admission, not fully understanding..until she admits who her true persona is.

    "Ooh, wait a minute..You're Sailor Mercury!?" she laughs, shakes her head. "Well, of course, it all adds up. You're both super smart geniuses with blue hair, right? Haha! I mean..I guess you have some magic that obscures your true identity or something, right?"
Ami Mizuno 2017-04-16 17:03:04 74729
"I maintain Heartnet's databases, as well as an index for all of Virtue," Ami explains to Sayaka. "So I sorta know the names and faces of every magical girl and boy in the organization. But we didn't put civilian identities in the database, for obvious reasons, so sometimes I don't notice the obvious clues."

A faint smile, a faint shrug, then she admits, "I don't really understand how henshin magic protects us from identification. I've studied it, but it's the most baffling part of this entire process. Someday I'll understand it, but there are more meaningful studies I need to complete, first. But yes, I'm Sailor Mercury," she admits a second time, then pulls out her Henshin wand to prove it. She doesn't transform, but there it is: Mercury's pen, in all its blue and gold splendour. "And I really am looking into Raskoph-san's situation. I can't tell you everything I know; he's asked for doctor-patient confidentiality, as it were, and I mean to respect that. But please know that I'm doing everything I can for him."
Sayaka Miki 2017-04-16 17:16:05 74730
    Sayaka's eyes widen at the realization. "Woah, you're the one behind heartnet?" she smirks, "I mean, I'm not a member of Virtue, although I've considered joining. I'm sure it's a lot easier to fight battles with allies than on your own. And right now, I feel like I have way too much on my plate."

    She arches a brow at a sudden thought, "Wait, so do you have a file on me as well? Or am I so obscure that no one really knows about me as a Puella Magi?" well that'd be an unflattering thought..!

    And then the girl produces the wand and Saya's eyes widen, "Wow, so you're the real thing huh. Umm, nice to meet you, Sailor Mercury!" she grins, but that smile quickly fades at the thought of Alexis.

    "soo, you're like his..Magical doctor, huh? alright. Well, I guess I cant argue with that. But if there's any way that I can help him, I'd like to know. I promised him I'd save him from himself..And he made me promise him that I would..End it..If there was no other way. I'd really prefer not to take that route if at all possible.."
Ami Mizuno 2017-04-16 17:22:05 74731
Ami's eyes widen, and she shakes her head. "Nonono, I'm not behind heartnet," she says quietly. "That's mostly Harlaown-sama, and her work with the Guardians. I just maintain the databases, and curate the information that comes in. I wrote a few algorithms, that's all," she explains.

"A-anyways, yeah, I don't want that to happen, either," Ami explains. "He seems like he was a nice boy, before all of this. Sometimes, I wish there was less undiscovered by physics than there is. Magic is ... so painful to so many," she says quietly. "I would give it all up if it meant that there was no more anywhere."
Sayaka Miki 2017-04-16 17:25:03 74732
    Sayaka just chuckles, "Oh I see..Even so, you probably have access to a wealth of information.." She's still very curious of what sort of info they might have on her, but Ami might have a vow of confidentiality in that respect to.

    She is a bit surprised when Ami says that about magic, however. "Really? Is magic really so bad, so painful? Isn't magic akin to miracles? Afterall, if it werent for magic, I couldn't heal people, and furthermore, I wouldn't have been able to make a wish to heal a friend's hands so he could realize his dream of playing violin. Maybe it's just that there are evil people out there who choose to manipulate magic to hurt others. But I couldn't imagine a world without magic.."
Ami Mizuno 2017-04-16 17:29:09 74733
"Imagine a world without witches and shades," Ami replies to Sayaka quietly. "A world where the Dusk Zone doesn't infect people. A world where Demons don't exist; where people's choices are not influenced by magical influences outside of their ken."

Ami frowns severely, then admits, "Yes, there's a lot of good in magic." A pause, before she says, "But for every good there is bad in equal measure or more. Science can solve the problems magic solves easily in time. Someday, we'd resolve issues like your friend's hand with medicine. But we cannot resolve a baby born with his soul corrupted by darkness. Perhaps we'll ... never be able to." This last seems almost hard for Ami to admit; painfully personal.
Sayaka Miki 2017-04-16 17:45:26 74734
    Sayaka frowns softly as she thinks of that. Of course she's thought of that, it's a world she never even imagined existed before she was introduced to the hidden world..

    "I guess, before I knew about those things, the world seemed a far friendlier place. But as Kyubey's always telling us, everything comes with a price. And I guess we should be thankful that there are magical girls who are able to fight those demons and witches. I couldn't imagine a world without magic and miracles either. At least we can be grateful that there's someone to protect us when there's no hope left.."

    She arches a brow at that last statement. "I think Alex's body, maybe even his soul is corrupted by darkness. And there's a good chance the same applies to Seth's heart too. But I dunno for sure. There's always gonna be evil magic out there, but there's good magic too. I believe in miracles, but only magic can grant miracles.."
Ami Mizuno 2017-04-16 17:48:16 74735
"Science grants miracles every day," Ami reassures Sayaka quietly. "It grants hope, and laughter, and love, and smiles. Medicine has made revolutionary leaps in curing things like the plague, cancer, and heart disease. Magic ..." she trails off quietly, then sighs, "Magic certainly offers miracles, as well. And I am grateful that there is light to balance the darkness. But I would prefer neither."
Sayaka Miki 2017-04-16 17:50:59 74736
    She bites her lip, not quite as sure of science as Ami is. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that she could never get science experiments to work in class. "Hmm..Do you think it's possible to save Alex's condition, or Seth's failing heart with science over magic? I guess I dont know enough about science to really understand the process. Maybe it just seems like magic is the easier of the two.." she grins sheepishly.
Ami Mizuno 2017-04-16 17:51:43 74737
"I don't know Seth's condition," Ami replies, "but Alexis' problem is born of magic. It cannot be solved by science. But if there were no magic, his problem would never have existed in the first place."
Sayaka Miki 2017-04-16 17:59:15 74738
    Sayaka nods. "I see your point. If there wasnt a cursed necklace to infect Norie-san in the first place, she wouldnt have become a psychic vampire, and she wouldn't have bitten Alex and infected him too. I guess a world with only good magic could never exist without evil magic to balance it out."

    She frowns, feeling tired with all this magic vs. technology talk, however. "So..How are those brownies? Are they ready yet? Need me to..Test 'em?" she grins impishly, "All this serious talk's got me a bit hungry.."
Ami Mizuno 2017-04-16 18:01:15 74739
"Well, that's not necessarily true," Ami says as she pulls out a small knife. "A world without good magic could still have dark magic. But when I say I'd give it up if all magic went away, I did mean a world without evil magic, too."

Carefully, Ami begins cutting into the brownies, turning the pan into sixteen bitesize brownies with deliberate cuts. She uses the knife to extract two pieces, then places one on the counter for Sayaka before holding the other to herself. "Hopefully they're good," she says quietly.
Sayaka Miki 2017-04-16 18:08:35 74740
    Sayaka nods, "Oh, I know. A world without magic would have to include both good and evil magic. It couldnt exist with just one and not the other, that's where the law of balances and opposites come in, or something like that."

    It's about all she could figure out from Kyubey, with having wraiths temporarily replace witches to balance out Madoka's de-witching ability. But of course Madoka had just up and left one day, and the witches had come back..

    She frowns softly at the thought, shaking her head. Brownies. She'd prefer to think about brownies and only brownies right now. Her mouth waters at the sight and smell of the delicious squares.

    "wow, this looks awesome! Thanks so much, Ami-chan!" and she doesn't hesitate to dig into the delicious chocolate square.
Ami Mizuno 2017-04-16 18:19:39 74741
Ami watches Sayaka's reaction to the brownies for a few moments, then smiles a little when it seems to be a positive one. She puts her own little brownie square in her mouth, using her other hand to cover the action, then tilts her head. Nto bad. Maybe more sugar next time. Ami chews and swallows, then leans up against the counter again quietly.

"Ah, anyways," Ami says softly, "I guess I should give you my phone number in case you need anything. I try to make myself available." So she pulls out a small piece of paper and scratches her digits onto it before handing that over.
