Haruna Kurosawa knows that Sakura Kinomoto is having trouble with being slowly drained without an external source to it. She also described deeply troubling dreams with an ending of 'finality' and quite frankly this worries Haruna.

Luckily, she knows just the person to go to! Rei-chan! Sailor Mars! She's bought a bag of super duper premium bird seed along with her because Rei also keeps crows and you feed your friends! Corvus isn't here though. He still feels weird about the shrine because he visited when he was an evil demigod in an illusion.

She hops up to the door and knocks knocks on the door and waits. This is kind of a surprise visit. She'll find a way to wait until Rei either comes back from an outing or finishes a chore or doing whatever it is Mikos do. She's pretty sure Mikos only use brooms in everything though. For some reason. She only thinks on this a little while her mind preoccupies with how she's gonna explain what she needs help with to Rei.

The knock comes...and goes unanswered at first! It seems Grandpa is out! Where is the miko of the shrine?

Haruna might be able to hear the cawing of crows, and the tug-thud of something hitting wood. Back behind the shrine, there's several targets set up. Rei Hino, clad in her miko's outfit, is putting slow, measured shots in a tight spread around various bull's eyes.

Thankfully, Phobos is a bit more attentive than the distracted miko. The raven alights upon the ground near Haruna. She caws at the girl. And then up into the sky she goes towards the back of the shrine. She'll circle, then dip down towards Haruna every now and then leadingly!

Thud. Thud. Thawck. Thud. She can hear that sound. "Oh Hi!" she says to the crow. She lets the crow guide her through the area around back as she skips down to a stop, then lays the bag on the ground near a post as she smoothes out her outfit. Adjusts the cowboy hat and hrmphs!

"Rei-chan!~" she sings out. "Rei-chan! Are you too busy to talk for a moment?" she asks.

"Well maybe longer than a moment." she says softly.

"I brought birdseed!" a pause.

"I dunno if your crows like birdseed." she admits. "But I wanted to bring something!" she says.
Rei Hino 2017-05-14 01:38:17 76451
First, Phobos is down to the bag! Then Deimos comes flying in. And another. And another. Soon, half the crows at the Shrine are fighting over that bag! A flurry of dark feathers!

It's happy flurry though. Haruna has gained more bird friends!

"Ah...Haruna-chan! It's been a long time." Comes the Miko, smiling warmly to the other girl and offering a dignified bow. She flicks her hair as she sets down the bow.

"No, I was just practicing. Do you want to go inside?" grin. "That hat is wonderful, by the way." A giggle.

She'll start leading Haruna back to the house again if she agrees! On the way though, she offers a mysterious, curious look to the other girl.

"What do you want to ask?"
Haruna Kurosawa 2017-05-14 01:51:27 76456
Haruna Kurosawa does follow along with a grin. "Thanks! It's a gift from the girlfriend! She's from /America/ you know! And I'm sure everyone wears cowboy hats when they're there." she says slyly.

She grins as crows start arguing over birdseed but then she gets into the house and she grows a little more somber.

"Actually." she says. "I came by to ask you to look at a friend soon. Or try to... read? divine her?" she says.

"I'm not sure of the word. But. Something has been draining her energy consistently, and she keeps having a dream that... feels like the type one may have about the future. Of being in a cage. And there's someone outside the cage she says and that she fades and the fade feels... 'final'..." she says a little uncomfortably.

"But she's worried for help so much she actually thinks going to Ami's Ex is a good idea." she whispers.

"So if you think you can find the meaning behind the dream. Or divine what's happening if possible... it's preferable you know?" she says meekly again.
Rei Hino 2017-05-14 02:21:46 76466
"...I see." Rei doesn't have the best opinion of that particular girlfriend. But she's too polite to say anything about it.

Once inside, she sits down, her face growing serious. The Miko ponders the situation.

"I can do my best. It's possible your friend might have some kind of curse, or evil spirit dwelling in her." She says it all utterly seriously. One leg crosses.

"I can attempt to do a reading on your friend, but it works best if I have something they own, or if they're here themselves. A fire reading is often vague. And it's not like I can see the future. But I can help them find meaning in their dreams. Maybe even a path to take to stop that...fading."

The words have her frowning. She shivers, despite the warmth of the house.

Haruna Kurosawa nods. "Yeah, that's the idea! I'm goin to try to bring her over, if possible. I just wanted to come over and ask first in person." she says softly. "Because if I brought her you'd feel put on the spot I bet n' stuff and I didn't wanna do that." she admits sheepishly.

Haruna also has opinions about her girlfriend. She keeps them to herself from Rei because she knows what those girls think of Hannah. Mostly.

"So. Yeah. I'll bring her over." she says as she sits down as she looks left and tight. "Where's your grandpa. I haven't heard a wolf whistle since I arrived on the grounds!" she says.
Rei Hino 2017-05-14 03:03:24 76484
Rei smiles a little more at first. "Oh! You're very polite Haruna-chan. Of course I'll help her, and you! I am here to help people. So, no, it's no imposition."

Somewhere, Hannah sneezes. And cuddles back up with Boris on the couch. The big dog has been given 'stop Hannah from being evil' duty. Mostly by sitting on her.

Pause. Twitch. The mention of her elderly relative has her laughing nervously. A long sweatdrop appears. Then quickly sizzles away from the growing heat around her.

"...Grandpa is out getting groceries. And he'd be a perfect gentleman to someone as nice as you, Haruna-chan."

Outside, there's the sound of a car pulling up. She goes to a window, and opens it. She sucks in a breath.

"ISN'T THAT RIGHT, GRANDPA HINO!?" Calls out the miko with pre-emptive fury. There's the sound of a door popping open, and someone falling out.

"B...but I haven't done anything yet, Rei!" Calls a voice quietly from outside.
Haruna Kurosawa 2017-05-14 03:26:12 76495
Haruna Kurosawa is about to respond when that exchange happens and she just begins giggling insanely. "Ohhhhh Rei if that bothered me you'd had known by now." she says as she waves a hand off. "But your grandpa..~" she sings out teasingly.

"Your rules!~" she says.

"Right. You should come by my Coffee Shop soon! Even if you don't like coffee we do lots of other specialty drinks and pastries~" she sings.

"Right on the beach!" she says.

"In fact. Wanna go now? Can you?" she asks with wide eyes. "Let's gooo! My treat!" she sings.
