Norie Okana has arrived onto the rooftop with a soft Dusk Zone jump. She has with her, a bag containing donuts and a cake aswell as some cupcakes of the white and chocolate frosted variety that she has obtained on her way here.

She's here to check on Alexis, as she softly takes a soft breath and looks around. She always looks around the roof, to see who's here first before heading downstairs. Someday, she's positive she's gonna step into a private moment. But that's why she's cautious, so she can leave without causing a comotion. She doesn't see anyone, so she clears her throat. "Hello? Anyone up here tonight?" she asks softly, still deadpan as ever.

"Over here," comes a call that echoes from the opposite end of the roof-- the familiar, vaguely german-accented voice.

Following towards the source of it, Norie finds Alex, indeed-- sitting precariously upon the railing seperating the rooftop proper from the god-knows-how-many-story drop below, feet idly swinging over empty air. He doesn't really look back to her way, but he does ask, once she's closer, "Making sure I'm not going wild?"

Norie Okana ahs, there we go. There he is. She gently walks on over and head tilts. She moves to sit beside him, she has no problems with heights. She would just become a splat of black ichor and spend the next hour reforming herself if she fell. Alexis doesn't have that benefit. His body is still human.

"Kind of?" she asks quizzically. "But mainly I brought you donuts and I brought the household a cake and cupcakes." she says.

"Someday I'm going to need to fight these people again." she offers. "But for now. I can do this while I can." she offers.

She places the bag back behind her.

"How are you doing?" she asks.

"Has your mouth stopped being on fire?" she asks.

"That's not going to be today," assures Alex, with him finally turning his head to look to her, now tht he's only required to shift his head by just a small amount to set one eye on her. "Won't have to be anytime soon either."

The bag is regarded briefly, but most of his attention settles on Norie more or less. "... I have been... better," he admits. "Even by... current standards. I don't feel good about what happened. People keep saying it's not my fault, but... I know, deep inside that was still me doing all that. Knowing that hurts."

And then *that* question. His brow twitches visibly. ".......Yes."

Norie Okana nods. "The dark amplifies those feelings. It could had 'been you', but what you are right now isn't helping either. It's really easy for me to... accuse people wanting to help me of wanting to trick me, or worse." she says.

"I imagine it's easy for you to get angry and keep angry with some things." she says.

"I visited Mercury-san the other night." she says. "She said that I should be thankful that I can 'save' people with this--- especially since she thinks she can undo it. She sees it as some sort of... hilarously dark evil bandage for death." she says with a scoff.

"I wish I could be so optisimitic about it." she says softly.

She eyes Alexis. "I like spicy." she says. "But I tried to warn you." she says.
