Amu Hinamori was sitting at the table, tapping on it softly as she hummed, drinking a shake. She'd given seth a call, and now was waiting, patiently. The girls were waiting for him, all of them. With their own little mini shakes.

Today was the day! Today, she got Sayaka a boy friend!

And speaking of the american boy, there he is, walking into the Crown. Having got the call from Amu, he sent back a message to her saying he'd meet her after class. So, once he arrives, he's wearing his Infinity uniform, complete with the satchel where his books and laptop are stored.

A quick look around, and he finds Amu and her Charas. He smiles a bit, and approaches.

Something might be noticeable; there is something... different about him, somehow. Could it be his stance? It is a fact that he often looked tired when he was about, even on occasion carrying a hand over to his chest. This Seth seems a bit more... Confident? Healthier?

He takes the seat opposite to Amu. "Good afternoon, Amu." He looks to the Charas, "Ran... Miki... Su..." Then back to Amu. "How're you all doing?"
Amu Hinamori 2017-05-05 18:07:56 75841
Amu Hinamori grinned up at him. "Hello, Seth-kun. I need to talk to you about something. I... have an opportunity to--"

"She wants to set you up on a blind date!" Ran jumped in.

"With a really cute, but lonely girl!" Miki added.

"Who is really just a dear, and needs someone nice like you to help her see!" Su said.

Amu face tabled. "Why do I even try? Like, is there even a point any more?"

"Smoooooooooooooooooth...", is idly said in plain English.

He looks between the three Charas, "You know, there is this little detail you need to consider, which is called 'tact'. It's used when sensitive matters are put on the table, in order not to scare off the people who learn about them."

He looks at the face-tabling girl, "I'm going to need something to drink, here." Because matters of dates - blind, no less - are always sensitive matters, and are better taken in on a working stomach.

Amu Hinamori sighs and nods, ordering him a shake with a cherry. She then sat up. "It's a blind date. She doesn't know who I'm setting her up with, either. I just think you two would go well together. She does know that she's going on a date, though. I'm not crazy."

She said firmly. "She's a--" Ran started, but Amu caught her. "No. Bad. As I was saying, it's a blind date. Just a one time thing unless you two decide to hit it off. I'll set everything up, I'll even pay for the meal. Since it was my idea. You know, you're NOT easy to get a hold of."

Seth Locke takes a sip of that shake, frowning a litlle as he sips and gets the taste in his tongue. Does it taste different?

He looks at Amu and the Charas as he rests the glass in front of him, "Well, busy with projects, managing a household and serving as a surrogate parent to a 13 year-old sister, plus the fact that I had to go into the Hospital over a chronical heart condition, plus monitoring appointments once you're out of danger, does unfortunately busy up a schedule more than I'd like."

"But I do have a question..." He leans forward a little, "Out of all the people you likely know better, why me?"
Amu Hinamori 2017-05-05 18:48:23 75855
Amu Hinamori smiles and... "Well... It was between you, and some other people. She's a magical girl and I know I want her to have someone who can understand that. And she's really great! she has some bad confidence issues, but she's really sweet. Tends to throw herself into the line of fire a bit too much, though. I swear she's trying to sacrifice herself a lot..."
Seth Locke 2017-05-05 19:05:23 75859
"Sounds like someone I know", Seth comments. "I got a little help at some point from her, and it seemed like it was going to turn out bad, but we pulled through alright. She helped me, and I helped her."

And this is where he rummages through his brain.

"And I am now left to wonder, here, if it's actually the same girl. Oh!, wouldn't that be a coincidence of cosmic proportions?"

He smiles, "Nah, forget about paying for the date meal. I'm a gentleman, and gentlemen pay for date meals, whether they go sour or not."
Amu Hinamori 2017-05-05 19:06:39 75860
Amu Hinamori nodded, grinning. "So you'll go, then? I'll set up the date as soon as I can, then. If that's an okay? Anywhere in particular you'd like to take her, or is here good?" She was already pulling out her phone to text the girl.
Seth Locke 2017-05-05 19:46:01 75871
"Where the mistery girl wants to go", he says. "Her choice of occasion, too." He's leaving the details entirely up to his date, here.
Amu Hinamori 2017-05-05 19:48:34 75872
Amu Hinamori nodded, grinning. "Well, thanks then, Seth-kun. I think this is everything I needed. I'll text you with all the details later, okay? I'm sure you two will get along wonderfully! I... should probably get home and get to helping my parents out. I'll see you later, okay?"
Seth Locke 2017-05-05 19:55:46 75874
"Okay, then", Seth replies, also with a grin. "I'll see you soon, and wish you a lot of happy gossip messages." Yes, gossip messages. Because teenagers with cellphones and social networks.
