Unmei Tama was totally NOT panicking. Her arms were wrapped tightly around herself, her breathing was fast, her pace was faster. But she was totally not panicking at all(she was.)

Of course, when she arrived at the school, to her annoyance, the gardens were closed. Dang it dang it dang ittttt. Her girl friend had a show and the others weren't home and she didn't know what to do. What COULD she do? She didn't have magic, she didn't have power, she didn't have ANYTHING any more!
A Siberian cat 2017-05-05 04:39:53 75803
It might be late enough that the gardens are closed, but given the seemingly odd nature of the school itself, the foyer is open and there is at least one student taking advantage of the available space to study. Books to the right, and a triple-tiered bento to the left that has only been marginally picked at, a familiar face from the school... but one who's usually almost always been in the background is there.

That would be one Koji Silvia. You know how you never see the cooks making the stuff for the maid cafe at the school fair? Koji. In the back in a booth making those takoyaki you love? Probably him too. Just the lower half of his body putting up decorations or taking them down? The same. So the almost feminine young man has staked out here tonight for a combination of homework and dinner... or at least tea, judging by the tall bottle and a half of oolong that's empty.
Magical Girl Clotho 2017-05-05 04:42:21 75804
Unmei Tama was in mid panic when she finally made her way to the foyer and... suddenly the boy would find himself grabbed by the shoulders. "YOU!" she said. Oh gosh she was going to kill him. "Do you know Kukai? Do you know where he is? It's an emergency! I can't get a hold of any of the others and I really need them right now but I can't!" she said, sounding just a tiny bit panicked.

"Anmd I swear I'm not here to kiss him! This time!"
A Siberian cat 2017-05-05 04:44:29 75805
There's a blink from the young man as he points at himself, and then reflexively tosses his braid over his shoulder and back as he points at himself a second time, "Me, Miss?"

Koji moves to stand up, before saying as he then bows out of politeness to the stranger, "I'm sorry, I don't know where Souma-sama is. Is there... a problem?"
Magical Girl Clotho 2017-05-05 04:49:23 75806
Unmei Tama shook her head. Then nodded. Then shook her head again. "I-I don't know! I just don't know! I mean, I guess there is, but, it's not. I can't get a hold of Kun or Mamo. Girl friend is out on her show. Kukai is the only magical person I know and this is definitely a magical perso--"

She stared at him. Realizing she probably sounded nuts. "Err. It's... lingo. Lingo for... drugs."

.... Unmei did NOT operate well under pressure.
A Siberian cat 2017-05-05 04:53:37 75807
Koji Silvia puts a finger up, and then brings it down at the first exclamation point... then on the second... and the third. Each time, he tries to open his mouth, though what Unmei is saying is rather confusing. He responds with a nervous, "Ku-... Mam-... I... girl... friend?" All the words not quite parsing with him before he gulps once more.

There's a moment where the young man collects himself, his eyes hidden behind the reflection of light off his glasses before he finally says in a slightly more composed tone, "You are saying this is a problem having to do with the sports team? And drugs? Wouldn't that be more of a problem for the school coach? Or maybe... a policeman?"
Magical Girl Clotho 2017-05-05 04:55:52 75808
Unmei Tama shakes her head. "No! If I tell them about the magic they'll think I'm crazy! I mean, the drugs. I mean, they won't know how to deal with the drugs, they're just cops. But there's a really bad drug now and I really, really need Kukai's help or there's a good chance the magical girl, I mean drug lord, will try to kill me and everyone I know because the gem, I mean drugs, have her under their sway and I just need to know where he is!" ... She is the worst magical girl love interest EVER.
A Siberian cat 2017-05-05 05:07:06 75810
Being the sensible young man that he is, instead of taking this all at face value, Koji instead motions over to where he was sitting with his homework and his food, saying, "Miss... maybe you should sit down. You're talking very fast and there is a lot you're saying that's very confusing."

What she doesn't hear, or even see is the voice and the small scroll that appears in Koji's eyeline as <<Einleitung der passiven Erfassung der magischen Energie.>>
Magical Girl Clotho 2017-05-05 05:14:25 75812
Unmei Tama shook her head. "No no no no. I can't sit down. She's going to start turning people to sins and it's all my fault. If I hadn't lost the gem, if I hadn't been selfish, I need to stop it. I need to find a way to stop it. She's not bad, you know? She's a bit bossy some times. But she's not bad. She's not that angry, either. Well, she is grouchy some times, but I know this is all the gem. It's making things... worse. So much worse. And I don't know how to fix it," she said, sounding as if she was almost in tears. "A-and I need Kukai or... or someone... anyone to help me..."
A Siberian cat 2017-05-05 05:24:19 75814
Koji Silvia 's first thought is to help.


He purses his lips in thought, ducking his head slightly as the admonishment comes, but still in his eyes there's some genuine concern as she asks for SOMEONE to help.

<<Koji, wir sollten inkognito bleiben.>>

Once more he hesitates and then takes a deep breath before he begins to pack up his bento, "Listen, I'm not really someone who can protect you, but if I see what's happening, we can both go to the police. My parents work for the government."

Not wanting to mention they're just environmentalists, just saying things to try and help give her some confidence as his books are packed away.

<<Das ist dumm, Koji.>>

'She needs help.' He thinks back to Tyrfing, 'And no one else is here to do it.'
Magical Girl Clotho 2017-05-05 05:33:00 75816
Unmei Tama jumps to her feet and pulls back. "No no no no no no no no. I can't go to the cops. If I go to the cops, they'll find out who I am and they'll--" She covered her mouth and shook her head.

"Cops... cops aren't an option. I... I need to... I need to find Kukai." And then tries to just run.
A Siberian cat 2017-05-05 05:37:34 75817
With a movement that is more the speed of an athlete, Koji is right there to grab at Unmei's arm, the unseen glimmer of blue-silver in the Belkan diagram on the back of his hand fading as a minor speed boost is enough to attempt the catch, "Wait!"

Once more, Koji tries, his expression nervous and resolute, "Listen to me. You seem scared. If won't let me help you, at least let me come with you. It's dangerous to be out in the streets at night."
Magical Girl Clotho 2017-05-05 05:45:04 75819
Unmei Tama shakes her head. "N-no. You don't understand. It's really dangerous if you--"

"I did tell you not to tell anyone," a voice said. Unmei froze and then, slowly, to see a teenage girl wearing a full body suit covered in rubies. It had a cat tail, cat ears, lion's mane... And a red sword in her hand. "But, of course you did. I knew you would. Now no one can complain when I tear it out of your hide..."

Unmei stared, her eyes wide. "R-run," she squeaked to the other guy. "Just... just run. F-find Kukai. Find any of them. Please. Kun. Mamo. Any of them."
A Siberian cat 2017-05-05 05:55:55 75821

The word flashes into Koji's vision as the other girl comes into view... and he almost seems somehow... relieved?

The bookbag with the books, lunch, and tea are set down to one side as he moves to stand in front of Unmei now, covering her while his glasses glint so hard they flash like a blade in the light.

As he stands there, he reaches slowly up to take those spectacles off, but at the same time says, "Tyrfing!"

In the air around him another voice can be heard faintly, an older male voice, and European, 'Kampfmodus auslsen!'

As he pulls his glasses from his face in a dramatic fashion, almost like cutting a blade through the air, there's a shine of silver-blue light around the young man and a triangle-shaped magical formula appears in the air, hanging there for a moment and twitching like it's almost not able to form properly. It moves forwards slowly and where it touches, the young man's clothing changes. The school uniform vanishes and reforms into a black short jacket over a slender armored chestplate. Pants with a drape over them that covers from behind almost like the lower half of a coat appear, showing the cut leaves a strip of flesh bare at the lower calf before the boots.

The Glasses though, as he holds them out, they change shape, morphing and expanding out until they become the metallic and high-tech sheathe for the grip of a sword who's crossguard is locked into it. His hair undoes and resettles into long bangs, completing the image of boy-as-girl, but the stern eyes of the changed form before the newcomer lock on.

"I'm terribly sorry, but despite what my friend is telling me, I'm going to have to stop you."
Magical Girl Clotho 2017-05-05 06:05:20 75823
The girl didn't expect that. In fact, the color drained from her face. Then... "WHAT? I can take him! He looks like... UGH! Fine! Whatever! Unmei! This isn't over! I'm going to break you like a tooth pick, you little brat. Then Pin'll knock off his little... comments," the girl said, before turning and fleeing.

Unmei just stared, her eyes wide and.... "O-oh. You're a... you're a magical girl, too." Pause. "Boy? Girl? Does... did you turn into a girl?" she asked. Then sighed. "I guess I was really... lucky. Is... everyone in this town a magical girl? Or boy? Sorry. Like, I'm not used to boys being able to be magical girls. Well, I am that. But being magical but not girls. It's not in the anime!"
A Siberian cat 2017-05-05 06:13:04 75825
Koji Silvia almost winces those now-pretty eyes of his shut a moment, and then makes a saluting gesture with the sheathed short-sword like weapon. That seems to reverse the transformation and the spectacles return to his brow just as his clothes return to normal. Turning around to face his now-rescuee, he then looks like he's... blushing, "Actually, I'm glad she didn't attack. We don't know how long our reserves would last." He then looks to the side and taps one finger to his lip, "I guess that would make me more like Ultraman..."

Shaking that off, Koji then looks even more embarrassed, "Wait... what? OH. Oh n-no, I-I don't turn into a girl! My friend is... he doesn't... That is..."

There's a beat.

"A-anyways, we got really lucky here. But we should go someplace safe. I have some protections at home. F-for my parents. You could stay there until morning. It seems like the bad stuff never happens during the day, right? Then you could find Souma-sama during classes."
Magical Girl Clotho 2017-05-05 06:15:28 75826
Unmei Tama shooks her head. "N-no. I should head to the frat house. There's a lot of magical people there. If... ummm, you came with me, I don't think she'd attack? Probably?"

Then... She stared at him. Then stepped in and gave him a hug. "It's okay, there's no need to worry. I think you're a very, very pretty girl. There's no need for you to be ashamed by that. If thats who you really are, that's all there is to it, right?"
A Siberian cat 2017-05-05 06:20:26 75828
Looks ready to cry now, not because she's so nice and encouraging... or hugging him like that... Koji just can't tell her that his 'friend' was previously bonded to a woman, and so it's altered his look permanently due to their unique state. His head hangs back and he says, "Th-thank y-you."

Straightening up, he then draws away, and goes to pick up his bookbag, "I'll walk you to the... house? House. And then I'll go home from there." Trying to smile, but the whole 'being thought of as a girl' thing is still leaving him frazzled, shown by stray locks of his braid sticking out in places, "You don't have to worry about us."
Magical Girl Clotho 2017-05-05 06:24:40 75830
Unmei Tama nodded, taking his hand. And... "Well, my name is Unmei. What's yours?" As she walks with him, then chuckles. "You can tell me your girl name, too." Oh gosh, poor, poor Koji. "And, well, I might be alone for a while. If you wanna play body guard until one of them get back?" Oh gosh. "I could do your nails!" ... Oh gooooooosh. "You really have such delicate features. You'll make a very pretty girl when you decide to." That poor, poor guy...
A Siberian cat 2017-05-05 06:29:30 75831
"K... K... K..."

He just cannot get the words out!

Eventually though, at a stoplight with a crosswalk, he turns to the girl, and says in a rush, "I'm really sorry, my name is Koji Silvia, I'm in the ninth grade at Seiyou Public School, and my hobbies are archery and cooking, and I really like Gundam."

It comes like like something that's half practice and half panic. After that, he looks away, and his voice comes more in a mumble as he adjusts his glasses, "It's... a complicated story. But the... I mean to say... that is..." He then looks back up, embarrassed, "I'm not a girl. Really. This is just how I am now, Miss Unmei."
Magical Girl Clotho 2017-05-05 06:38:31 75832
Unmei Tama nodded. "Well, my name is Unmei. I'm... adopted. Sorta. That was my sister in law. Sorta. There was this whole thing and I was a bad guy. Sorta. But I got saved. Sorta. Now I'm not bad, but I also don't have powers. She had my powers. Some how. And I'm not sure that's a good thing."

She then looked him up and down and... smiled. "Fine. I won't tell anyone, okay? But... you don't need to be shy. A magical girl form is like... the essence of who you want to be, right? So if that's what you feel most comfortable with, no one will judge. But if you're embarrassed to say it, I won't tell anyone."
A Siberian cat 2017-05-05 06:43:59 75833
Koji Silvia rubs the back of his neck and chuckles just a little as the light changes and the pair can cross now, "It... doesn't work that way with us. I don't think."

He looks around several times as they move along, more out of nervousness than actually NEEDING to keep an eye out, but it does make him look attentive. But with his head turned away again, he goes on, "It sounds like your life is really complicated, Miss Unmei. But if you have friends, then they'll help you. Because that's what friends do." He sighs once more, "I don't have any... friends I mean. I like to help people, but I've always been just... there. Then this happened."
Magical Girl Clotho 2017-05-05 06:48:44 75834
Unmei Tama nodded. Then hummed. "Well, I kind of got trapped in Eclipse, they were making me be evil and drain people, you know? It sucked. Like, I HAD to hurt people. And do a lot of terrible things. Horrible things. I figured I'd just... die. You know? I mean, I was a villain. didn't think I could be saved. Then Mamo and Kun saved me. And... and helped me get free. So... I know they can deal with this, too."

She then gulped. "But no cops. And you need to stick around a bit and talk to them too, okay? Their house is a true neutral point. None of the factions fight. So it's safer that you get to know them. Trust me, they're awesome. And..."

she then stared and then... inched a little closer. Cocking an eye. Only a few inches, walking besides him. Eying him. Wait a minute... was he...?
A Siberian cat 2017-05-05 06:53:32 75835
The info-dump is a bit much for the young man, who murmurs, "This all sounds... complicated." Fumbling for the last word before Koji looks back, then a second time as he sees the cocked eye. Turning to face Unmei, Koji clutches his bookbag closer to him, just a little, and then says, "N-no, really... It's fine. I don't need to meet your friends, and obviously... well... the police couldn't do anything about something like that. Really, it's all no problem. I just..." He pauses as if listening to something, "We... just want to avoid trouble."
Magical Girl Clotho 2017-05-05 06:57:26 75836
Unmei Tama nodded and then patted him on the head. "Oh, I'm sorry. yuo can't avoid trouble now. You're a magical girl. Trouble is going to follow you everywhere you go. But... isn't it better to have friends who can bail you out when it gets too scary?" she asked with a smile.

"So just say hi, okay?" She then smiled and tapped her chin. "If you do, I'll give you a kiss on the cheek~" she teased with a wicked grin.
A Siberian cat 2017-05-05 07:04:37 75837
Koji Silvia 's demeanor seems to change just a bit with the offer of the kiss on the cheek, and he seems suddenly stiff and formal, "I am sorry, Miss Unmei. We shouldn't stay any longer. It could be dangerous for Koji... for us. Perhaps another time."

He bows, in a slightly formal manner and motions up to show that you're at the dorm-house now, "If you will excuse..." The pause almost seems like he's searching to see if 'me' or 'us' is more appropriate, but then just turns to depart, leaving you on the doorstep of your safety for now.
