Too Nice For Norie

Norie checks up on Sakura after she ran away at the end of the switch back into her proper body. Sakura is way too nice for her own good. She wants to meet Riventon to talk. Norie'll try to arrange it.

Lacrima 2017-04-13 01:26:47 74617
Lacrima has things to discuss with Sakura. Relating to the whole change card mess. She's back in her own body. She's sent a mysterious text to Sakura. Perhaps she nabbed the number while bodies were switched.

'Come to the park. I wish to speak to you. My name is Lacrima. I was the one who got switch with Kukai.' she says.

She is standing in front of a fountain, in the fountain some small goldfish swim among the rapidly waving water. She gently watches them, softly sighing a little to herself.
Sakura Kinomoto 2017-04-13 01:34:15 74618
Sakura Kinomoto arrives! And... oh my gosh. She was wearing... There were no words. Tomoyo was behind her. With a camera. Recording it all. Sakura had the look of someone who lets their friend get away with -way too much-.

Lots of black leather, a lil star charm on her chest, a white puffy undershift, black long skirt, boots with belt clasps on them. Fingerless black elbow length gloves.

Yup, Tomoyo. Sakura just sighed. "I don't think she's going to like this." And she was getting sooooo many looooks. Gahhhhhh. She then... "Norie-chan! Hi!" Ran up and... and she hugged the girl. DRAIN HER! Wait, no, it's sakura, pure love! It might kill her! Too much purity!
Lacrima 2017-04-13 01:56:40 74619
Sakura hugs her, oh god she sort of tenses. She lets her hold it to the count of three. "Please don't touch me." she says politely as she can.

She looks down at Sakura and blinks and then up at Tomoyo. "Can you please. Turn that off. Just for now?" she asks softly to the person with the camera. "I'm asking nicely." she offers.

She looks back down at Sakura.


"I'm sorry. For how Kukai started yelling at you the night when that... card. Touched me." she says quietly. "He was overwhelmed with what he felt at the time. My body isn't exactly pleasant to inhabit. It's just a mass of dark energy. Not flesh and bone, like you." she says.
Sakura Kinomoto 2017-04-13 02:03:47 74620
Sakura Kinomoto glanced up. "Huh? Oh! Right, sorry!" she said softly. She let go, quickly. Tomoyo, to her credit, shut off the camera.

Sakura glanced up at her, nodding. "Oh. That. I... I understand. I mean, I don't understand. But I know something bad was happening and... even if I don't understand what it all was, doesn't mean I should get mad about it, right? And you're both my friends! So... I can't be mad at either of you, you know? he was just a bit scary, anyway..."
Lacrima 2017-04-13 02:45:01 74621
Lacrima nods. "I'm... glad? that you're okay then." she says softly. She frowns a bit. "During an encounter, I met someone calling himself Clow Reed." she says softly. "Along with Mamoru and Kunzite." she says softly.

"He said you'd need a lot of help soon." she says quietly.

"I can't help you." she says. "I am dark. I am on the other side of this conflict." she says. "I'm not here to hurt you tonight." she says.

"I want to know how you are doing." she asks. "I imagine it was hard. You didn't seem to want to stick around when I broke down when I got back into my body." she says.
Sakura Kinomoto 2017-04-13 04:51:18 74626
Sakura Kinomoto blinked a few times. Then... Lunged forward and grabbed her by the shoulders. "You met Clow Reed? Where? How? He's alive? How can I meet him? Kero-chan needs his help!" she said, sounding panicked.

Then blinked and quickly pulled back. She then looked to the side and lowered her eyes. "It... it was... sorry." She then blinked a few times. "On the dark side of... but..." She stared up at her. "But... I... do we really have to be enemies? I mean... even if we're on opposite sides? What if I don't pick a side?"
Lacrima 2017-04-13 05:04:11 74627
Lacrima head tilts. "I had an interaction with a card called.. 'The Return' that seemed to show points from the past of people's lives." she says. "It got out of control and this man stepped in. I'm not sure if he's alive or dead. But he was there." she says softly.

"Sakura. I am La Vampira. That's a female vampire, in Spanish." she says gently. "I eat energy to remain as close to human as possible." she says longingly.

"I also work for someone who wants your cards. It is inevitable that we'll fight, Sakura-chan." she says quietly. "It isn't personal. And if what Clow Reed said is true, we'll lose anyways." she says.
Sakura Kinomoto 2017-04-13 05:08:13 74629
Sakura Kinomoto nodded, frowning. "The return card? Where was it? Does Takashi-kun have it? I'll need to ask him for it then," she said. ASK HIM FOR IT?!

"... So? Why does that mean we can't be friends? Just because you're a vampire doesn't mean you're a bad person!" she said cheerfully, giving her a big grin.

She then blinked a few more times. "Well, okay then! That settles it! You and I will be friends!" she said with a smile. "If you're going to lose, then there's no need to take any of it personally, right?"
Lacrima 2017-04-13 05:16:36 74630
Lacrima frowns. "It is attached to... someone very special to me right now. I can't talk about it with you until I talk to him about things." she says softly.

She frowns and head tilts. "I don't try to be a bad person, Sakura." she says.

"But I still need to stalk people and drain their energy." she says. "Or else I will become 'a monster'." she says quietly.

She softly closes her eyes and places a hand on her shoulder. "Lots of people 'want to be my friend' but that's harder than it sounds." she says quietly.
Sakura Kinomoto 2017-04-13 05:19:19 74631
Sakura Kinomoto blinked, then nodded. "Okay. Well. When you feel you can tell me, let me know okay? The cards are dangerous if they're left on their own too long though. But I'll trust you, okay."

She blinked. "Oh... well... ummmm..." She then perked up. "Oh! You can take some of my energy, would that help?" she asked, with a big grin. "We can be friends then, right? And besides, you just don't want to be a bad person, right? Daddy tells me sometimes good people have to do bad things for good reasons. I... don't like it, but... I don't think you do either. Right?"
Lacrima 2017-04-13 06:30:18 74632
Lacrima nods. "I don't like it." she says softly. "I was a human once." she says. "Not even that long ago." she says softly. "I've worked really hard to maintain what I can of that life. Eventually, I will need to leave it behind." she says quietly. "Darkness is eternal. I am immortal." she says even more quietly. "Maybe someone will kill me eventually. But I have no particular desire for that to happen, and those I've made enemies of can't wield what will kill me." she says.

She frowns. "I won't feed from you Sakura. The last girl around your age I fed from I sent into a many month coma." she says quietly. "I don't think you want that." she says.
Sakura Kinomoto 2017-04-13 21:57:57 74634
Sakura Kinomoto blinked and then nodded. "Okay. I... don't want that. You're right. But... I want you to be okay, okay?" she said with a smile. "And... and you don't want to do bad things, even if you have to to do less bad things, right? That makes you a good person," she said with a smile. "And... and I like you for it!" she said quickly, grinning up at the girl. "So let's be friends, okay?"

Tomoyo sighs, giving a content sigh. "You're so adorable, Sakura-chan, when you try to be friends..."

The card captor squeaked, flailing a bit. "I-I'm really not!"
Lacrima 2017-04-13 22:12:17 74635
Lacrima head tilts and purses her lips. "We'll see." she says entirely on the point of being friends. "As I said. Anything would be short lived. And honestly. I got addicted to my last young friend's energy. I don't want that here, either." she says softly.

She looks to Tomoyo. And blinks and then back to Sakura with another blink.

Well, she has no idea what that's about. Also. Sakura is wearing the goth look. Adorable isn't something she equates with that.

"Is this your friend?" she asks. "Is she magical too?"
Sakura Kinomoto 2017-04-13 22:15:10 74636
Sakura Kinomoto blinked, then nodded. "Oh, this is my best friend! Tomoyo Daidouji!"

The girl stepped forward and bowed her head politely. "A pleasure to meet you."

"And this is Norie-chan! I've told you about her." The other girl just smiled up at her, before her eyes were drawn back to Sakura. "She's not magical, but she's been following and... recording my adventures."

"And designing all her cute costumes! Every magical girl needs them!"

"Eh... heh heh..." Sakura chuckled nervously.
Lacrima 2017-04-13 22:26:18 74637
Lacrima head tilts at Sakura. Then looks at Tomoyo again. "Do you comprehend what's really going on, Daidouji-san?" she asks.

She looks back to Sakura and head tilts some more. "Do you know what Riventon-sama wants with you anyways? I haven't had a chance to talk to him on the issue." she says softly. "I have some vauge ideas." she says gently. She decides to sit down on a nearby bench. She observes the two softly some more.

"Whatever he's doing. Or thinks he's doing. He probably does mean well." she says.
Sakura Kinomoto 2017-04-13 22:30:02 74638
Sakura Kinomoto nodded. "Uh huh! He said he's trying to protect things and he wants to be friends with the cards! And, well, if he's lonely, I can hardly begrudge him making the cards some of his friends, you know? I just wish he would have been nicer about it and asked. There was no need for him to be so mean about it." She crossed her arms and pouted.

"Oh Sakura-chan, you're so cute when you're mad!"

The girl eeped and shook her head. "Tomoyo-chaaaaaan!" She flailed about helplessly.

Tomoyo then smiled. "Magic and all that? Yes. I do. I don't understand all of it, but I can remember it if that's what you're worried about."
Lacrima 2017-04-13 22:49:45 74639
Lacrima head tilts. That sounds. Un-Riventon-sama like. She assumes this is Sakura's interpretation of events. "I see." she says softly. She purses her lips as she looks back to Tomoyo. "Remembering it is key." she says softly. "You may have something inside and not know it yet." she says.

"But I wouldn't get your hopes up." she says.

She head tilts and looks towards Sakura again. "Riven-sama means well." she says. "He was one of the only ones to talk to me early on instead of condemning me and what I had to do." she says. "He offered to help me get some of my abilities under control and he did." she says.
Sakura Kinomoto 2017-04-13 22:56:33 74640
Tomoyo chuckles. "Oh, don't worry about that. I'd never care or know what to do with magic like that," she said with a giggle. "I'm just happy that I'm able to record Sakura-chan's journey and be there for her."

Sakura smiled to her. "It's true! Tomoyo-chan has helped me so much on this, I never could have done it without her!" She then stared up at her. "Well... I don't think you're bad. I think you're someone who's just having bad things happen to you. But that doesn't make you bad." She said with a super happy grin. "And yeah, he seems nice! I do need to talk to him again about the guards, though."
Lacrima 2017-04-13 23:02:32 74641
Lacrima head tilts. "Lots of people want to hurt him. So he has guards. I protect him too." she says. She head tilts and sighs. She looks to Tomoyo. "So, you make Sakura's outfits?" she asks. She looks back to Sakura and eyes her. "You don't have a proper.... change?" she asks.

"How do you even handle fighting then?" she asks curiously. "Most of us are able to shift. You can't?" she asks. She gently places her hands into her lap.

"You know Kunzite and Mamoru, too, it seems." she says quietly. "What's your relationship with them?" she asks.
Sakura Kinomoto 2017-04-13 23:06:12 74642
Sakura Kinomoto shakes her head. "Nope. I don't have any magical defense things like that." She then... glances down. "I ummm... I guess... just sometimes I get hurt... I guess..." Ah. The hospital incident. It probably makes sense now. Also the way her hands kind of started to partially wrap around herself. Tomoyo was staring with worry. She then shook her head. "B-but it's okay! I... I've got my friends, I've made a lot of friends cause of these! And Spark-sensei is teaching me how to fight! And, and the cards are my friends too and they keep me safe most the time! So it doesn't matter if I can't transform!"

She then blinked. "Oh! Well, err, one of the cards was having a bit of fun with them and stole one of their voices. So I helped them. And Kunzite-kun met me a bit before hand and has helped me with a few cards." She paused. "I don't think he likes them much." WONDER WHY!
Lacrima 2017-04-13 23:31:13 74643
Lacrima head tilts. "Ah. Yes. He doesn't like them much. I don't like them much either. One hurt my friends and the other messed with my own personal life." she frowns. "My friend. Has private things he doesn't want shared. I had private things I didn't want shared. It did both." she says quietly.

"I don't like re-living my life before this like that. It makes me too miserable." she says.

"To remember what I was and can't be again."

"These cards are a menace if left to themselves." she says quietly.

"Where did they come from anyways?" she asks.
Sakura Kinomoto 2017-04-13 23:35:48 74644
Sakura Kinomoto shrugged. "I don't know. Kero-chan said Clow Reed helped create them. And that they all need to be recaptured or a great disaster will befall the world," she mumbled softly. "But he didn't tell me more about it and now I... can't really ask since he's been..."

The worry was evident on her face and she looked like she might cry a bit. "I really need to... talk with Riventon-kun. Can... you tell him? That, please? For me?" she asked, looking up.
Lacrima 2017-04-13 23:41:30 74645
Lacrima head tilts. "You should call him Riventon-san." she says. "At the minimum." she says. "He demands respect. I call him Riventon-sama." she says quietly. She nods. "But I will tell him you want to talk. He may wish to talk in a place on his terms. Are you okay with that?" she asks.

"Such things can be seen as traps." she says. "Inviting someone to talk." she says.

She head tilts. "At the minimum. Neutral ground." she says.

"And I can mediate if need be." she offers. "He'll feel safer if he has someone there anyways." she says.
Sakura Kinomoto 2017-04-13 23:44:41 74646
Sakura Kinomoto nodded. "Oh! Sure. That'll be fine," she said with a smile. "But he has to promise no trying to steal the cards, okay? And sure, you can mediate," she said with a smile. "Just let me know when he feels up to it, okay? Would you like my phone number?" she asked, then blinked.

"Err, and no sand. My phone was broken last time and... well... that was bad," she said with a shake of her head. "I felt really bad about that..."

"Sakura-chan..." Tomoyo said, putting a hand over her shoulder. "And... I want to be there too. For Sakura-chan."
Lacrima 2017-04-13 23:55:42 74647
Lacrima head tilts. "Alright." she says softly. "I'll let him know. And yes. I'll need that." she says softly. She looks to Tomoyo. "It's up to Riventon-sama if he allows it." she says.

She removes her burner phone and rattles off it's phone number for Sakura as she'll input Sakura's into it.

A Burner phone, something that can be thrown out if required.

She looks back up. "He'll probably pick someplace without sand." she says.

She looks between thw two. "I should. Be going now." she says quietly. "I just wanted to be sure that you were okay." she offers. "After all that." she says.

"I know I was a mess back then." she says. "I didn't like going back into that body. But it wasn't fair for Kukai-kun to exist in my former one like that." she says quietly.

She nods. "If there's nothing else to discuss. I'll take my leave." she says quietly.
Sakura Kinomoto 2017-04-13 23:57:39 74648
Sakura Kinomoto nodded. "Okay. It ummm... it was nice seeing you again, Norie-chan! I hope we can hang out some more sometime," she said with a grin, giving a big, happy wave to the girl.

She truly was too nice for her own good...
