Sakura Kinomoto was roller skating, enjoying herself. Or trying to. She couldn't help but imagine what was happening to Alexis. What he was going through, how he was suffering. How he hurt her friend. How he tried to hurt her. What if Tomoyo wasn't okay?

However, she skidded to a stop in front of the house, glancing up. Slowly, she walked up to the door and knocked. In her school girl outfit!
Sayaka Miki 2017-04-14 19:42:09 74702
    Sayaka had received Sakura's urgent text message and had immediately texted back, asking her to meet her at her house. Unfortunately when she'd received the message, it was a bit late and she was in cram school at the time. Now she nervously waits for the girl to meet her as she rushes home from cram school.

    She had arrived a few minutes before Sakura had, but didnt have long to wait. When Sakura knocked on the door, it swung open instantly, and Sayaka steps out, hugging the girl, worried clear on her face.

    "Sakura-chan! I was soo worried! i'm sorry I didnt reply sooner..Are you unhurt?"
Sakura Kinomoto 2017-04-14 19:43:56 74703
Sakura Kinomoto nodded. "Uh huh. I have a lil bit of a bruise on my neck, but... Tomoyo-chan is in the hospital. She hasn't woken up yet and I'm really worried about her..." she mumbled softly.

Her eyes were lowered and she gave a soft sigh. "I... I don't know how to help him. Miku-chan said she knows how to find him, but I don't know how to stop this. So I asked kukai-kun and kunzite-kun for help."
Sayaka Miki 2017-04-14 19:47:39 74704
    Sayaka frowns, wrapping an arm around the girl's shoulders. "C'mon inside. Are you hungry? Need anything to drink? My mom baked some chocolate chip cookies and I could whip you up some hot chocolate to boot." she gently directs her towards the kitchen as she speaks.

    "Please, sit down and tell me what happened. You say that Alex was all...Purple.?!" that has her seriously bothered. What the heck!? "And he..Attacked you? Why...Why would he do that?" This has her deeply troubled.
Sakura Kinomoto 2017-04-14 19:54:33 74705
Sakura Kinomoto gasped, her eyes lighting up. "Cookies and hot chocolate? That sounds great!" Then... "Oh. But that's a lot of sugar. I'm not sure daddy would like that... well... I guess if I don't have too many..." she mumbled softly, tapping her chin. "I guess just one cookie and just milk?" she asked.

She then sighed. "I was in the park, chasing a card. Then I heard a scream. I went to investigate. Tomoyo-chan called the cops, but then she screamed and dropped. The monster held her. I... tried to fight it off, but I couldn't beat it. I don't have a lot of power cards. I tried to bind it up, but I almost got bound up instead. I called for help and had to run. Then... he caught me. And then he stared at me, and almost did... something to me. grabbed me by the throat. Then... let me go and told me to run."
Sayaka Miki 2017-04-14 20:06:04 74706
    Sayaka smiles, "I'm sure one cookie and one glass of hot chocolate wont hurt. And my mom's pretty health conscious, so I'm sure she didnt put too much sugar in them. In fact, I think she uses stevia which is way better for you and less sweet!" she grins, sitting down opposite her at the kitchen table.

    With a smile, Sayaka reaches over for a cookie and pours herself and Sakura some hot chocolate. She's trying to be calm, trying to smile for Sakura's sake. She certainly doesn't want her to be upset or scared.

    But the more she listens to the girl's story, the more concerned and..Angrier she gets. "Wait...Alex attacked your friend!? But, I thought he was targetting thugs and villains. Why is he doing this?" no, more importantly, does it mean that he's losing control?

    "I..Have to believe in him. There's no way he'd willingly attack innocents. His..Infection must be spreading. I'm sorry this happened to you, Sakura-chan. I'll go and visit Tomoyo-chan in the hospital later too. In the meantime, I'll track him down. Just..If you're going out to hunt cards, maybe call me next time? I dont want you on your own with that kind of danger on the streets.."

    She is careful with her choice of words, not wanting to consider Alex a willing danger..
Sakura Kinomoto 2017-04-14 20:09:41 74707
Sakura Kinomoto nods. "I know. I... I'm getting a lot better, though! I didn't end up in the hospital this time! i protected myself and kept myself safe this time!" she said with a grin.

Once she got the cookie, she gently nibbled it, and sipped her cocoa. She cringed at the reaction, though. "And... and I'm safe... I just... wish I hadn't brought Tomoyo-chan with me... She got hurt. Again. And it's my fault. This... this is so dangerous. But... but she doesn't want me to leave her out..."
Sayaka Miki 2017-04-14 20:27:20 74708
    Sayaka smiles, "And you acquired that shield card too. That should help beef up your defences a bit at least, right? And what about the card you were trying to hunt down? Did it get away in the end?" she smirks, "Hey, if you ever need help locating and hunting more cards, just let me know and I'll be back up."

    As for Tomoyo, Sayaka nods, "I dont think any of us were expecting that sort of thing to happen, so dont be too hard on yourself. At least she's in the hospital. She should be safe there. And..I'll hunt down Alex and see what this is all about.." Her gaze hardens a bit. She's not too sure if he's totally at fault or what, but she's gotta get to the bottom of this, one way or the other.

    "And, i'm relieved that your safe as well, SAkura-chan! I guess I can understand Tomoyo-chan not wanting to be left out. I know when I didnt have powers, I often felt left out too. But if she has to come along, call me first. Then I can protect her while you're busy hunting down cards, okay?"
Sakura Kinomoto 2017-04-14 20:29:36 74709
Sakura Kinomoto nods. "Oh, yes. The shield card actually saved me, there. And ummm, yes. I did. Libra. It makes people tell the truth," she said with a smile. "And I will. I mostly just sense them and go, though."

She nodded. "Okay. Do you want Miku-chan's number? She's hunting him now. And she's looking for some help with it." She then nodded and grinned. "I... I like that. Help. Honestly. It's... kind of nice. Knowing you'll... keep her safe. Makes me feel better. Thank you."
Sayaka Miki 2017-04-14 20:34:22 74710
    Sayaka nods and smiles, "Good, I'm glad that I helped you find that card! That's pretty cool how you can use so much variety to assist you in battle. How many cards you have now?"

    She mentions that name, a name that's mostly unfamiliar to Saya, although she may have seen her at school at one time or other. "Miku, huh? She a friend of Alex's?" Or...Is there more to it than that? Saya always seems to pick the wrong guys to have a crush on.

    "Well.." she clears her throat, smirking, "Yeah, give me her number, we can connect..And hunt Alex together, I guess. It's better than going alone, I guess. I hope.."
Sakura Kinomoto 2017-04-14 20:41:06 74711
Sakura Kinomoto nodded, before pulling out the deck of cards. "All of these! They're so nice and wonderful, my friends!"

"Yeah, they're friends. I don't think she's too fond of him, though. She's really kind of... doesn't seem happy when he's around since he got... weird."

She nodded and gave the number over, smiling to her. 'Here!"
Sayaka Miki 2017-04-14 20:44:22 74712
    Sayaka nods, taking down Miku's number if it's offered her, although her smile fades when she mentions Miku's reaction towards Alex. But Saya knows all too well how those kinds of feelings tend to play out. But really, she's just grasping at straws here, and being more curious than she should be.

    "Seeing Alex in that sort of condition must be confusing for any of his friends. I'm not sure how I'd feel if I saw him. And you said he turned...Purple..?" what the heck? She frowns, "But even so, I promised I'd help him, no matter what, even if it meant..."

    She swallows. Even if it meant she'd have to...End him. Saya really doesn't want to think about that though. Instead, she focuses on the cards. "Wow, these are awesome! So which ones you got now?" She peers at the deck, but doesnt fully understand what each one represents.
Sakura Kinomoto 2017-04-14 20:47:30 74713
Sakura Kinomoto held them out, taking a deep breath. "Well, this is windy and earthy, she's really nice, he's kind of a bit of a brat. Flower is wonderful, one of my favorites. Wood is so calm and soothing. Float is playful." There were well over a dozen of them. Tons of them, one by one she went over their little personalities and behaviors and all about them.

"I think we've caught almost all of them now!"
Sayaka Miki 2017-04-14 21:39:11 74714
    Sayaka's eyes widen as she pours over the beautifully illustrated cards. "Wow, this is amazing..And with your magic wand, you can bring 'em all to life, right?" OH that's right, she'd seen her use float before, and..Some other one which she forgets. "That's amazing. So who designed all these cards and why? Are you descended from a line of wizards or something?"

    She grins, "So, almost finished huh? That's awesome! I wonder what happens once you collect 'em all?"
Sakura Kinomoto 2017-04-14 21:47:50 74715
Sakura Kinomoto shook her head. "Clow Reed. And I'm not sure I am, or not. Apparently he was amazingly powerful." She paused. "Like... more powerful than any mage in the world. Kero-chan said he had the ability to just think of something, and it happened, he was so strong." She was quiet for a moment.

"He says I might be that strong some day. But... I doubt it. I'm nowhere near that. I barely even do anything at all and am always being saved..."

She shrugged. "I think at that point, I give it back to Kero-chan and just keep them safe. They're really powerful and dangerous. If I don't save them all, the world could be in a lot of trouble, he says."
Sayaka Miki 2017-04-14 22:04:02 74716
    Sayaka blinks, "Wow, a powerful wizard who can just think things and make 'em happen? That's kinda scary. I guess I can see now, why it would be very bad if these cards fell into the wrong hands. Good thing you awakenned to that power first!"

    She frowns at mention of Kero. "How's Kero doing these days? Is he still sick? Poor guy.." he's soo cute too! not evil like Kyubey..

    "But I think you just need more faith and confidence in yourself. You've got all the hallmarks of a great heroine. And if you dont keep those cards, they could fall into the wrong hands. Some day you could become the most powerful wizardess out there, and with all the dangerous enemies that lurk around the city all the time, I think a lot of people would be grateful for your abilities.."
Sakura Kinomoto 2017-04-14 22:06:52 74717
Sakura Kinomoto nodded. "Yeah. I hear he was really, really nice though. And that he helped and protected people. Kero-chan says he could see the future and he probably chose me. I don't know why, though. I mean, I'm not anything special. I've met soooo many magical girls who are wayyyyyy stronger. I mean, I'm friends with almost every magical girl in the city I think, I can name over a dozen of them who would have been better than me."

That made her cringe. "He's... really not. He's still pretty sick, I made him a little bed in my drawer so he can sleep..."

"oh! Ofcourse! the cards aren't just tools, they're my friends! I know they can be naughty, but they're good on the inside, really! They just go a bit wild and need some guidance." Her cheeks went red. "T-the most powerful... I-I couldn't do that! I mean, I-I've met so many amazing, wonderful magical girls who I couldn't come close to!"
Sayaka Miki 2017-04-14 22:25:48 74718
    Sayaka hmms, "Sometimes it's not obvious why a person was chosen. I think maybe personality is the most important aspect to being a good magical girl, and not power. I know a certain magical girl who is very powerful, and she's actually a real clutz and an oaf. I'd never expect her to be able to save the world, but she did, once."

    She smirks, "Even myself, I never imagined I was a terribly powerful magical girl, but even before I became one, I wanted to help people. And then there's Alex..." She sighs, having a distant, thoughtful look in her eyes as she remembers his desire to help people, even if he did often end up on the wrong side of the tracks..

    Saya glances back at Sakura with a frown, "Hmm, I wonder what's wrong with Kero-chan? Does he have a fever? Perhaps you should take him to the vet or something..?" he smiles, "Hmm, they seem like really good friends, and yet they, and this Clow guy both chose you. I'm sure they had good reasons for selecting you, not the least of which was your kind heart and selfless acts."
Sakura Kinomoto 2017-04-14 22:30:41 74719
Sakura Kinomoto blinked, staring. "A clutz and an oaf? That's not nice to say... I hope you don't say things like that about me..." she mumbled softly.

Her eyes widened. "You weren't? But you're so strong! I couldn't have broken shield without you! And if not for that, I'd be in the hospital now, Alexis-kun was going to hit me almost as hard as--" And covered her mouth.

"I... want to, but he's... ummm... a magical creature. I don't know if they can do anything. I've tried to... I thought he'd heal, but he hasn't..." Then her cheeks turned red. "W-what? M-my heart's not that, I mean, all of the girls have kind hearts! A-and you're all really selfless!"
Sayaka Miki 2017-04-14 22:33:29 74720
    Sayaka laughs, "Oh, I dont mean to be mean..But she is a bit clumsy for a heroine." she shakes her head, "But maybe you're right, I shouldn't have said that. Sorry. You're not clumsy but you do seem to lack confidence in yourself though, and whether or not you want the calling of a heroine, for right now, you've been charged with collecting these cards. If you wanna stay alive, you need to believe more in yourself, like Kero-chan and Reed-san do."

    Her frown deepens when Sakura describes how Alex attacked her, seeming very angry at the thought. And she tries hard not to think of it, focusing instead on Kero. "Hmm, I dunno who else we can talk to though.."
Sakura Kinomoto 2017-04-14 22:37:18 74721
Sakura Kinomoto nodded, blushing. "W-well, I'm going to do my best and capture all the cards! that way they can be with their friends again! besides, the whole thing was my fault anyway, if I hadn't... wlel, if I hadn't done this, hadn't released them, none of the bad stuff would have happened."

She then sighed. "Even if I knew who could help him, I don't think he'd let me. He... told me he was just tired and that it was a cold. But its been months and he's not getting better. I know he just doesn't want to worry me but... but I am worried. And he's my friend and... and I feel like there's nothing I can do to help him and I want to help him but he wants to stop me from worrying but I can't not worry about my friend. I mean, if he needs my help, why can't he just let me know?" she asked, giving a little sniffle. "If... if you need help, you should j-just let your friends help you! Watching your friend shuffer is just... is just the worst thing ever..."
Sayaka Miki 2017-04-14 22:55:18 74722
    Sayaka frowns a bit, "Geez, I wish I knew more about magic, then maybe I could help more. But, I do know someone who is super smart and always seems to have an answer to everything. Perhaps if you would like to come with me, we can go and see her sometime? Maybe you know her name, Sailor Mercury? She's the smartest person I know.."

    Although she doesnt know Sakura's friend very well, she is still concerned and determined to help Kero! "Just lemme know when you're free to meet and we can set something up. I'm sure he just doesnt want you to worry, y'know?"
Sakura Kinomoto 2017-04-14 23:12:06 74723
Sakura Kinomoto nods and smiles. "Yeah. I... I think I may know her. She has the maze card, actually. She's really, really smart. But... I ummm..." she shuffled her feet together. "I... I don't wanna say it but I think her boy friend... he might be..."

She shook her head. "No, no, I'm probably over thinking it. I ummm... just... Call Miku-chan, okay? I uhh... I need to go home, to see mom. I... b-bye." Before she got up. "T-thank you for the cookies! I'll bring some next time, okay? Bye!" Before turning and fleeing,before she dares to say something bad.
