    Sayaka had been out patrolling, pushing herself as she always had. Lately, she had a new purpose; Helping people, although most recently most of her energy had been directed towards trying to help Alexis.

    Having heard about the news reports concerning a crane crashing into a building had piqued her curiosity; But it was the part about the thugs who were found unconscious nearby that had her even more concerned, and she was determined to search the area to figure out if it had something to do with a certain energy vampire..
Amu Hinamori 2017-04-14 01:50:42 74650
Amulet Heart had been on the search for this Sayaka girl. Leaping from roof to roof. She'd heard from a few people that the girl was over this way, so she made her way over. Miki and Su were flying around, looking for her too.

And then she caught up! Saw the girl, a few roofs over! Her eyes lit up. Was that her? Matched the description! She grinned and leaped towards her. "HEY!" she yelled out. Then... "Sayaka-chan!" she yelled again.
Sayaka Miki 2017-04-14 01:56:56 74651
Sayaka pauses on the rooftop, peering around, surveying the city down below. it's a relatively quiet night, and she doubts she'll find the info she needs. But, perhaps she deserves a moment or two to rest; afterall, she's been working nonstop lately, trying to help people, trying to fight other peoples' demons. She needs a rest.

    But just as she's about to call it a night, she hears an unfamiliar voice calling her name. "Huh..?" she peers around at the girl who comes towards her, arching a brow, "Hmm, who're you? how come you know my name?"
Amu Hinamori 2017-04-14 02:00:07 74652
Amulet Heart landed by her and... dusted herself off, giving the girl a smile. "Hello, are you Sayaka-chan? My name is Hinamori Amu, I'm a member of virtue. I've actually come to discuss with you a matter pertaining to Norie-chan," she said with a smile and...

Suddenly Su was in the other girl's face, frowning. And poking her nose and shaking her head. "Oh dear. You look so tired. Have you been eating okay? When's the last time you had a full night's sleep?" Put a tiny hand to her forehead. "Are you feeling well?"

Amu blinked. "Err... su...?"
Sayaka Miki 2017-04-14 02:01:50 74653
    "Huh?" she blinks slowly as Amulet Heart introduces herself, and she smirks at the mention of Norie. "Oh. Dont tell me, she's up to no good again.." Then suddenly a little fairy floats in her face! Saya is a bit surprised, but, remembering her encounters with Yoru, she smirks, "Heh, you remind me a bit of Yoru..What was it Ikuto-san called 'em? Charas?"

    She rubs her eyes a bit tiredly, shaking her head. "No, i'm fine, really.."
Amu Hinamori 2017-04-14 02:03:53 74654
Amulet Heart blinked and. "Actually, I needed to--"

Was cut off by Su raising a hand for silence. She looked at the girl in the eyes, then took her hand and hauled her off(an impressive feat considering she was three inches tall.) She then made her sit down on the ledge, pulled out some cookies, and stuffed one in her mouth. "You poor dear, you look like you've been running yourself wild. You should take better care of yourself." And then started giving her a back massage.

Amu was just... staring. With a WTF look.
Sayaka Miki 2017-04-14 02:08:55 74655
    Sayaka blinks, "Wait, what?" then suddenly, cookies are being stuffed in her mouth! She flails, but relaxes a bit, enjoying the cookie. "Mmmf. Thith ith goof..." She munches away at the cookie as she sits on the ledge, totally lost as to what's going on.
Amu Hinamori 2017-04-14 02:12:38 74656
Amulet Heart is pretty lost herself. "Err... Su? We need to talk to her about--"

"Tut tut. That can wait." She then flew in front of the girl and crossed her arms. "No, Sayaka-chan," she said, and... oh gosh, she gave her the mother finger wag. "You've been taking too much on your shoulders, haven't you? Just like Kukai-kun and Amu-chan and all those other girls who keep thinking they can handle everything on their own without putting anyone else in danger, haven't you?" And then... gave her another cookie.
Sayaka Miki 2017-04-14 02:17:39 74657
    Sayaka blinks, slowly. "Woah. You're really a handful..Su, is it?" she shrugs, grinning, "It's alright. It's my job, afterall. If I dont help people, then it means I'm no good as a hero, so..." she draws a deep breath and smiles still. "But thank you, for your concern."

    With a smile, Saya takes the second cookie, stuffing it in her pocket. She can eat it later. For now, she glances over at Amu, "So. What did you want to talk to me about?"
Amu Hinamori 2017-04-14 02:21:11 74658
Amulet Heart blinked a few times, then moved over and sat by her and... "Wait, is it true?" she asked. "Listen. I know exactly what's going on, then. I've been there, trust me. You think only you can do something, that you have to do something, that if you don't do it, more important people, or more vulnerable people will have to do it, someone might get hurt. That you're scared you might not be pulling your own weight."

She then reached out and took the other girl's hands in hers, clasping them together. "But that's why we're here. That's why Virtue is here. We have a lot of enemies. We have a lot of things we have to do. And the sad fact is, we can't do it all on our own. Sometimes we need to ask for help. It sucks, trust me, I know. But we're not perfect. So if you need help, ask. Because there are plenty of people here who not only can help you, but want to help you."
Sayaka Miki 2017-04-14 02:28:03 74659
    Sayaka blinks slowly, "Huh? What do you mean??" she shrugs and grins, "No really. Being a puella, it's vital that I dont lose focus. It seriously IS my job to save people from witches and what not, and not just a 'fun thing' I do."

    Saya glances over at the girl and smirks, "Heh, so you're from Virtue, hmm? What're they like? I had considered getting in contact with them, but I guess they're pretty strict from what I hear. Especially when it comes to the dealings of WPS. I'm not so sure that Virtue would come to my aid in that case."
Amu Hinamori 2017-04-14 02:33:25 74660
Amulet Heart nodded. "So? It's all of our job to help each other. Just because you're a puella doesn't mean we can't or won't help you, silly."

And then her eyes went wide. "NO!" she snapped, slamming a fist down on the ground. "It does NOT work that way! We may not agree with what the WPS does. But when someone needs help, we -help them-. Because even if our methods aren't all the same, in the end we're here to help and protect each other. We have to work our hardest in order to do that." Then smiled and reached out, giving her hand another squeeze. "And that means if you ever need help, if you're ever over whelmed or scared, just call me, okay? If I can't help you, I will find someone who can. You aren't alone, no matter what, okay? And even if you just need someone to talk to, or a shoulder to cry on, or a place to stay for the night, let me know. And I'll be there. Got it?"
Sayaka Miki 2017-04-14 02:36:52 74661
    Sayaka blinks slowly at Amu's passionate statement. "Huh, you're really sweet, Amu-san, but..I'm okay. I guess, there are a lot of people I'm trying to help at the moment, but I'm sure it'll be okay in the end.." she laughs a bit nervously when she suggests that being a hero is everyone's job. Probably doesnt know about a Puella's true fate. She shrugs, chuckles again.

    "Alright, if I ever need help or backup, and if you're sure that Virtue really would help me, then sure. I guess sometimes a job is too big for one person alone.."

    She quirks a brow, "So what's this about Norie?"
Amu Hinamori 2017-04-14 02:42:30 74662
Amulet Heart nods. "i know. And those people you're trying to help? Other people might b trying to help them, too. And you can help them together, it'll work better that way."

She then nodded. "Okay, I'll give you my number. Call me if you need anything." Listed off the string. Then sighed. "right. Norie-chan. I... actually need to talk with you about her and Alexis-kun."
Sayaka Miki 2017-04-14 02:55:55 74663
Puella Magi Sayaka frowns at the A-word. "Oh? Is he okay? Did something happen?" suddenly she's very concerned. Norie? not so much..
Amu Hinamori 2017-04-14 03:08:33 74664
Amulet Heart sighs. "No. I heard about you threatening Norie-chan after what happened with Alexis-kun. I talked with her, I found out exactly what happened and... I hate to say it. But I think her turning Alexis-kun was... the right thing to do."
Sayaka Miki 2017-04-14 03:15:17 74665
Puella Magi Sayaka narrows her eyes. "Threaten? Is that how she put it?" she frowns,

    "I'd hardly call it a threat, I caught her mid-feeding and..Well, I dont think I need to explain myself."

    Mention of Alex makes her voice soften a bit. "Well..I dunno if it was the right thong to do, but I understand why she did it. I've actually struggled with it for a long time, and.."

    She draws a deep breath, "Look, I'm sorry if I spooked her, okay? I just hate seeing Alex-kun suffer so.."
Amu Hinamori 2017-04-14 03:18:57 74666
Amulet Heart nods, shaking her head. "I understand. What happened to Norie-chan and Alexis-kun is horrible. I wouldn't wish this on anyone. Ever. And I fully intend to do everything I can to save them both and bring them back to being human. I know Norie-chan doesn't think that it's possible... but she doesn't have hope. So I'll just have to hope enough for us both." She then smiled and patted her hand.

"And you'll hope with me, right?" she asked with a grin. "So we can save them, both of them?"
Sayaka Miki 2017-04-14 03:33:23 74667
Puella Magi Sayaka hmms, "I guess, Norie would know better than anyone if there is a cure, and she's been that way a long time."

    She sighs, "I dont want to give up hope but sometimes it seems tyere is nothing to hope for, and I feel so helpless. Especially as a Puella, I am risking my life..And more, by giving him my energy.."
Amu Hinamori 2017-04-14 03:35:13 74668
Amulet Heart blinked. Then leaned forward and hugged the girl. "There's always hope," she said softly. "Even when they say there isn't. Even when everything in the world seems dark and hopeless. Even when no one has ever been able to do it before. Even when you feel out numbered and like the whole world is against you. Like nothing you do will be able to stop the tide."

"There is always, always hope. I promise."
Sayaka Miki 2017-04-14 03:46:44 74669
Puella Magi Sayaka sighs, "I sure hope you're right. I guess I'm just not used to waiting for miracles to happen. I'm usually the one who has to create my own. But suddenly I feel helpless to stop things like this. I really do hope there is some hope left in the end."
Amu Hinamori 2017-04-14 03:49:34 74670
Amulet Heart nods and smiles at her. "There's always hope. We just have to never, ever give up. Look at this." She held her hand out to the world. "You know how many times the world has almost been destroyed in the last year alone?"

She then glanced back. "And we fought it back every time. Us. At times it seemed impossible. At times it felt like there was nothing we could do to stem the tide. But we did it. All of us, together. Against everything. So we'll always do it. Again and again and again. We'll create hope when there is none, we'll find a way when it's impossible. If it's just a dream, we'll make it reality. And we'll do it together."
Sayaka Miki 2017-04-14 04:00:39 74671
Puella Magi Sayaka chuckles, "Wow, you do this often? Pep talks? Alright then, I'll try and stay positive. Just hooe youre right."

    She smirks, hugging Amu back . "But thanks for the encouragement!"
Amu Hinamori 2017-04-14 04:06:20 74672
Amulet Heart snickered and gave a thumbs up. "Yeah. Once in a while."

"She actually defeats the x-eggs by pep talking them," Miki says.

"Uh huh, Amu-chan is best at giving pep talks." Su says with a nod.

Amu grins and nods.

"Only thing she does better than pep talks is falling in love with boys."

Amu kept nodding, then froze. "Yup! Amu-chan's pep talks and her jumping heart are two of her best qualities," Su added.

"H-hey!" Amu shrieked, flailing.

"In fact, her jumping heart is the only thing there's no hope for," Miki said.

"HEY!" Amu squeaked, her face bright red.
Sayaka Miki 2017-04-14 04:09:59 74673
Puella Magi Sayaka smirks, "Seriously? You pep talk them? You kidding me?" apparently not.

    She sweatdrops when Su talks about her flirtatious ventures.

    "Heh. Well I'm sure you have better luck with guys than I do.." her tone is almost bitter.
Amu Hinamori 2017-04-14 04:19:10 74674
Amulet Heart squeaked, turning bright red. "Eh... heh heh. Err..."

"Nah, not really," Miki says. "She has the prince, but she's completely blind as to who else likes her. Compleeeeeeetely blind. Oh, and Eilam-kun. And I guess Ikuto-kun. But they're evil and she doesn't like that." Pause. "She totally does."

"MIKI!" Amu screamed, flailing from side to side, her face practically on fire.
Sayaka Miki 2017-04-14 04:23:21 74675
Puella Magi Sayaka chuckles, "The prince? Who is that?" however, she already knows about Ikuto and she smirks, "Realky? You got the hots for him? but he's so..Serious, and didnt he have a thing fir Mikoto-chan?" Eilam she doesnt really know.

    "Still, must be nice. I always seem to crush on the wrong person, then things dont work out at all..Its like a curse.."
Amu Hinamori 2017-04-14 04:24:49 74676
Amulet Heart squeaked. "N-NO! I do not crush on him!"

"He tried to kiss Amu-chan," Miki said with a grin. "And she wanted him to~" Su added.

"NO I DIDN'T! I only kiss Tadase-kun! ONLY TADASE-KUN!" she shrieked. Her face on fire. "A-and he's the leader of Virtue. And, err, my boy friend," she said sheepishly. Then blinked and...

"Sayaka-chan, are you lonely?"
Sayaka Miki 2017-04-14 04:30:32 74677
Puella Magi Sayaka chuckles, "That's cute. I guess a lot of guys find you attractive. That's a nice feeling I'm sure.."

    She sighs, staring out at the skyline. "I guess sometimes I feel a bit lonely, but I have a few good friends here and there. Though I suppose I'm not particularly close to anyone."
Amu Hinamori 2017-04-14 04:33:28 74678
Amulet Heart nodded, then reached out and gave her hand another squeeze. "Well... Sayaka-chan, you're really cute. If you want, I could set you up on a blind date? I'm sure I could find someone you like. Do you like boys, or girls?"
Sayaka Miki 2017-04-14 04:44:01 74679
Puella Magi Sayaka blinks in surprise, and blushes, "Wait, what? a blind date?" she laughs nervously, "Well..I dunno..I mean, I'm defintely into guys.." heck that one 'experiment didnt ho so well.." I mean, I like to think things like that happen naturally, and.."

    And there's the thing with Alex, and that's awkward and confusing enough.

    "Why, did you have someone in mind?" she smirks, uncertainly..
Amu Hinamori 2017-04-14 04:47:11 74680
Amulet Heart hums and taps her chin. "Mmmmm. Mayyyyybe. If I do, are you interested? How old are you, 13? 14?" she asked, a smirk on her face. "Just trust me, you'll have a great time," she said with a wink.

Oh, how ever could this go wrong?
Sayaka Miki 2017-04-14 04:55:26 74681
Puella Magi Sayaka blinks slowly, wondering what she's getting herself into this time, and laughs nervously.

    "Ummm...Heh, I'm 14..I dunno, this is kinda weird, hehe, but...Okay..?"
Amu Hinamori 2017-04-14 04:58:48 74682
Amulet Heart nods. "Good. I'll text you as soon as its figured out, okay? Just trust me." Before jumping up and giving her awave. "I should probably head out, though. I've got my own patrols to do. Bye!"

Now she was off to see if she knew any single guys. Hmmmmm... Takashi was single, right?
