A Roller Coaster Evening

Alexis and Sayaka go on a date to a theme park!

Date: 2017-06-05
Pose Count: 63

Well. By the time the two had seperated the other night, they'd likely agreed to this already.

A date later on, that is. An actual, proper date. By their standards, anyway. And ultimately, Alex had said he'd come at this time, now, to come meet her by her house.

What he didn't really mention, though, was *how* he was coming along. At the appointed time, the sound of a motorcycle engine resounds throughout the street, and a black Suzuki motorcycle with red highlights carrying a young man in a brown leather jacket comes rolling to a stop just before Sayaka's home. And the black, mirror-visored helmet getting removed reveals the face of Alex.

Well. He didn't really particularly dress up for the date, Unless there's something special under the jacket -- it's zipped up for the time being anyway.
Sayaka Miki 2017-06-05 00:40:36 77912
    Well of course, a normal going to a tame little diner wouldn't suffice for these two. And Saya had already expressed interest in the roaring bayside theme park. Especially the ferris wheel they only trashed the last time they were here. Which appropriately, was a fight to the death no less. What did you expect from two intense people?
    At any rate, she's waiting by the window anxiously for his arrival, and kinda dressed up in a slightly flared, knee-length jean skirt and a white blouse. And some short black boots. No frills, no ribbons, nothing fancy. Just plain, somewhat comfortable outfit that's probably the most fancy wear she has anyway.
    Hearing the motorcycle rumble outside, her heart flips and she runs down the stairs, openning the door before he can get to it. Try explaining that to your parents, afterall!
Stahlritter 2017-06-05 00:50:32 77914
Saya *did* mention that her parents are somewhat strict. But perhaps the implications of that for *this* particular meeting didn't really sink in for Alex very well. So when Saya does come bursting out the door while he's still on his way to stepping towards it, his eyes widen up to the size of saucers, and he blinks rapidly at the blue-haired girl. ".........Uh. Hi?"
Sayaka Miki 2017-06-05 00:57:02 77915
    From the outside, her house is pretty impressive. Definitely a well-off two story building that looks expensive with a nice large backyard too. However, doesn't look like Alex will get to take a peek inside it any time soon!
    Sayaka smiles widely at the sight of him, giving him a quick hug, but speaking softly. "Hey, handsome, what took you so long?" she smirks, "Um, I'd invite you in, but my parents are kinda strict, when they're not off being busy doctors and what not. They're kinda home right now, so uh...Maybe we should just sneak off quietly?"
    Which is totally awkward and tricky, when you're driving a motorcycle, no doubt!
Stahlritter 2017-06-05 01:02:07 77917
The hug, as quick as it is, is only really managed to return with just one arm on Alex's part-- and with her explanation given, he lets out a quiet "oh..." of understanding, peeking at the door behind her briefly before... sliiiiding off to one side. "...Um, can you meet me two blocks down that way?" he asks then, with his hand waving off to another direction. "I'll do a quick roundup before getting on my bike and driving off in case your folks peek out a window or something, okay?"
Sayaka Miki 2017-06-05 01:14:13 77919
    "Yeah.." smile fades a bit. "Sorry, it's awkward like that. But maybe someday soon, I can introduce you to them. And I'm sure they'd love you!" she nods again, peering down the street, biting her lip. "Ulp, I guess I can do that.." Kinda weird, and stuff, but better than the alternative. "Then, see you in a bit?" she grins, leaning over to peck him on the cheek before setting off in the specified direction.
Stahlritter 2017-06-05 01:21:34 77921
...Despite Alex being otherwise a shining example of a manly tough guy, there's *still* the faintest hint of a blush when he gets pecked on the cheek, and he akwardly mumbles, "...Real soon," in answer, and then-- he's just slipping off to the side. Sneaky-like, first. He's intending to make it look like he went back to his bike from anywhere other than Saya's house, see.

Fast forward a minutes over, and Alex comes driving with his bike around a house a few blocks over-- and comes to a stop right before Saya, this time around. His helmet comes off almost immediately after he's steadied his feet down onto the curb, and he flashes a smile at the girl. "By the way," he murmurs, as he reaches one arm towards her in invitation. "You look nice."
Sayaka Miki 2017-06-05 01:30:13 77924
    Okaaay, let's try this one more time! Saya of course, being impatient and all, doesnt take her time to walk the two or three blocks, but rather, she runs, being all athletic tomboyish girl that she is! Of course, Alex is bound to outpace her with the bike and all, and she'll probably arrive there a bit breathless and sweaty in this hot summer day (skirts and blouses were just not made for running in!), so when he meets him the second time, she smiles a little sheepishly.
    "Um. Heh. Guess that was kinda a bad idea. Next time I'll just meet you outside my home before hand." she laughs nervously as she steps towards the bike. "Um, thanks! So do you! I mean..I guess I was curious to see what you looked like in a suit. But, this is admittedly more you."
Stahlritter 2017-06-05 01:35:04 77925
"I *could* have worn a suit," Alex notes with a brief tinge of sheepishness in his tone. "But... well. I think that would be a little overkill for a theme park, right? Besides..." His arm goes around Saya to pull her close enough that he can lightly press his forehead against hers. "...I think formal wear doesn't suit either of us quite as much as this." Having said that, he immediately kisses her on the lips, holding on to that touch for a good several seconds before drawing back with a quiet, satisfied exhale of breath.

"Here," he offers then, with his other hnd bringing up a helmet for her. "I know you don't really *need* one, but the cops don't really know that."
Sayaka Miki 2017-06-05 01:40:31 77926
    Sayaka smirks, "I know, I'm only teasing. And you're right, wouldnt' want to get dirty in an expensive suit.." even though he probably could afford it anyways. She cant help but feel herself blush as he draws her nearer, kissing her on the lips, and Saya holds her breath, eyes fluttering closed for a moment or two as she presses her lips against his.
    "Hmm, Norie-chan must really have lectured you, to get you to become so affectionate." she smiles but says nothing more. No need to torment him too much. "Yeah, thanks. I mean, I'm not quite as invincible in this form, though I guess some of my healing bleeds over. Still, good idea." Saya takes the helmet, slipping it over her head and slides around on the back portion of the seat, waiting. "So um..All good to go?"
Stahlritter 2017-06-05 01:49:21 77931
"Not particulalry," Alex claims, on the matter of Norie, sheepishly. "...Blame it on a lot being held back before, I guess."

Once she's sliding onto the back of the bike, he's settling his own helmet back onto his head. "Arms around my waist," he instructs, leaning forward to take hold of the steering handles. "Feet against the sides. Don't squeeze too hard with your thighs, you'll need to be able to turn your weight in time with the bike." And once she's settled there properly, is when the bike's engine roars up to life again, and he's guiding it to speeding off down the street!
Sayaka Miki 2017-06-05 02:02:04 77932
    Sayaka blinks. "Yeah..I know. I know that's gotta be tough. I guess I'm still not used to seeing this whole new side of you, you know?" she grins as she leans in close, wrapping her arms around his waist. "I like it!"
    With a nod, she does as she's instructed, waiting for the bike to come to life. Eyes widen as she feels the wind rushing at her feet, wishing she'd worn jeans like she had originally intended to. But Saya's an adventurous spirit and always ready to try something new.
    "Woo, this is pretty fun!" she shouts above the wind.
Stahlritter 2017-06-05 02:13:46 77935
"You haven't seen anything yet!" Alex declares in a yell over the sound of the motorcycle's engine, in regards to 'this side of him'. "Don't underestimate the fire in a man's blood!"

The bike ride to the harbor district is more or less uneventful, at the very least. And he brings the bike to the parking lot besides the theme park, then, and kills the engine there, with the supporting leg kicked down. "Well--" he says, with his hands coming up to take off his helmet once more. "We're here. Hopefully with less punching and swords and dark energy tentacles involved, huh?"
Sayaka Miki 2017-06-05 02:44:29 77941
    Sayaka seems to be having so much fun on the back of the bike, that she's quite surprised when they reach their destination so quickly. "Wow...That was sooo awesome! I hope I can ride your bike again, it was so much fun!" she grins, pulling off the helmet, placing it carefully on the bike.
    Peering up at the themepark she chuckles, "Hm, yeah, i'm sure we can get through a single, normal date..No monsters allowed! How about it! where do you wanna go first?"
Stahlritter 2017-06-05 02:53:54 77943
"WEll there's one way to find out, huh?" Alex points out as he dismounts from the bike, settling the helmets into a side pouch of the bike after locking up the whole thing.

"WEll, come on," he urges then, with his hand held out slightly to the side, as if offering it for her to hold. "And I guess that depends on how much adernaline you want to start out with right away, yeah?" A brow arches. "There's a pretty decent-looking roller coaster there, ain't there?"
Sayaka Miki 2017-06-07 03:07:52 78061
    Sayaka smiles as she climbs off the bike, stepping over to grab his hand. "Hmm, how much adrenaline can you take? Dont think I'd mind checking out all the rides myself!" she grins and winks, starting to head towards the rides. "Geez, this really isnt...Normal, for a date, is it? I mean, maybe we'd be riding the very same ride we trashed not too long ago. Kinda ironic, isnt it?"
Stahlritter 2017-06-07 03:14:18 78063
"Going to an amusement park for a date isn't *that* uncommon, is it?" Alex points out with a slightly questioning tone, head tipping to side-eye Saya with that. "I mean... except for the part where we almost killed each other in the park not that long ago, I guess. Otherwise, though... what *is* 'normal' for a date, anyway?" His hand gives hers a small squeeze with that while his eyes consider their surroundings. "I mean. If you want to get really stereotypical I could always go and try to win one of those giant teddy bears for you from the games and such, but that seems a bit... cheesy."
Sayaka Miki 2017-06-07 03:28:30 78065
    Sayaka hmms, peering over at the rides. "Well. I suppose maybe we're just not that normal. But then, normal's pretty darn boring, isnt it?" as for teddy bears? She grins, "Heh, I wouldn't mind one actually, though I do prefer the giant My Little Ponies. Also, I'd love some ice cream. How about you? I mean, you do have a stomach for roller coasters later right?"
Stahlritter 2017-06-07 03:36:57 78068
"Really," says Alex, with only the slightest bit of disbelief appearing in his tone of voice, extending on to the look he gives her, too. "I didn't really figure you for the pony type, but sure...?" A brow arches slightly.

And what with the ice cream, he lets out a quiet snort, and even sticks his tongue out breifly at Saya. "Of course I do. So I don't have vampire superhealing or whatever, but that doesn't mean I'm fragile, you know."
Sayaka Miki 2017-06-07 03:40:40 78070
    Sayaka chuckles, "Guess there are still things you dont know about me. I like to act tough, and beat stuff up. Be the super hero, solving everyone's problems and fighting the monster of the day...But sometimes, I just..I dunno, want to be pampered. I have a romantic soul I guess, but not everyone gets tot see that side of me."

    She grins, reaching out to playfully tickle him, "Heh, I know! You're one of the strongest people I know! Most people crack under pressure, but you kept your cool and didnt panic. And you werent afraid to die, even if I was afraid to deliver that final blow.."

    She shakes her head, "But fortunately, we dont have to worry about that. Guess sometimes even antiheroes get to have a happy ending.."
Stahlritter 2017-06-07 03:48:51 78072
"Then I'll just have to make a point of pampering you," Alex murmurs in a surprisingly soft tone of voice-- and he even leans himself over enough to press a quick kiss to the top of her head. "Well-- not *too* much though, mind you," he adds in a more teasing tone then, teeth flashing out in a grin. "I think even my parents would get suspicious *eventually* about me spending a ton of money suddenly."

His head tips over to one side over her further words, though, brow arching. "Oh? Am I an antihero, then? Or was that just when I was filled with Dark Energy? I'd like to think I didn't do anything *too* bad while I still had control over myself, but--"

His words get cut off by her hands suddenly coming to assault him with TICKLES! His eyes promptly widen and... he brings up both his arms in an effort at defense, suddenly laughing uncontrollably. "Gah! Nooooo, staaahp!"

... Apparently he's weak to tickling.
Sayaka Miki 2017-06-07 04:05:52 78076
    Sayaka smirks, "No, I just meant, back when you were filled with dark energy." she laughs, "But that was then, this is now. You have a chance to start over. Be a force for good, no longer influenced by evil. And I'm happy that things got to work out okay in the end. Now we can at least pretend to be normal-ish. Right?"
    With a chuckle, she loops her arm around one of his,looking for an ice cream stand. "Heh, didnt realize you were so ticklish. Now I know your weakness!" she grins and winks.

    As for that other thing about his parents...She raises a thoughtful brow. "Hmm..I hope someday I can meet them, and you can meet mine. I mean, it's not like I'm forbidden to date boys, once I reach 15, I'm actually 'allowed' to. And my birthday's coming up soon."
Stahlritter 2017-06-07 04:18:57 78078
Alex actually *pouts* faintly by the time Saya's draping onto his arm (not that he really seems to mind *that* part), at least up until he's turning his head to leaning down against hers. "My only weakness," he grumbles.

His eyes do twist down to look at her, brow rising slowly at her words. "Your parents keep an age restriction, huh..." He mutters, with a wrinkle of his nose. "How soon's that? I'm turning seventeen too in... um..." Pause. "...Four days actually."
Sayaka Miki 2017-06-07 04:25:50 78080
    Sayaka sweatdrops, laughing nervously. "Gee, you're always one step ahead of me. I mean..I've never dated someone two whole years older than me before! I still feel like a kid.." she laughs, "I'm turning fifteen in ten days, heh. Imagine that. Even our birthdays are close together. Ummm...."
    Then she gets a far off look, trying to figure out what sorts of gifts she can surprise him with. "So. What are birthdays like in that mansion of yours?"
Stahlritter 2017-06-07 04:39:17 78082
"I feel like two years doesn't make tht much difference when you get older," Alex insists with a quiet chuckle. "You know? In the grand scheme of htings, I'm not even that much older than you are. I'd probably have felt different about it a few years ago, but still."

THe question leaves him into a brief moment of silent thought. "When I was younger they were real big-like, but... pretty lonely. Mostly involved just... the staff at the house. I kind of... stopped wanting those parties around the time I turned twelve, though." Beat. "I think the lst time I really did anything for my birthday was when I was eleven, actually."
Sayaka Miki 2017-06-09 15:31:34 78256
    Sayaka grins, "Guess it depends on how mature you are for your age too. I'd like to think i'm at least somewhat mature, but some people would beg to differ. My parents for instance." she makes a face as she heads for the ice cream stand, and there is a line, because it's hot today.
    "I mean..Sure I've played hookey a lot, but it was for a good cause, really! I was beating up monsters and saving the day, so that's gotta count for something, right? And, I suppose if i tried hard enough, I wouldnt end up failing so many tests. Just lazy and preoccupied. I mean, trying to juggle school and being a Puella Magi? That's a lot of work."
    But as he describes his younger childhood, Saya nods with a slight frown and sigh. "I'm sorry to hear that. How about now? When's the last time you had a birthday party, as a teenager? Since coming to Tokyo, you must have made at least a few friends, like Norie..Right?"
Stahlritter 2017-06-09 15:38:18 78257
Once they're in the line, Alex gives the blue-haired girl a sheepish smile and shifts besides her just so that he can wrap his arm around her shoulders to pull her just a little bit closer like that. "I guess we're even more similiar than we thought first, huh?" He murmurs, sheepish. "Well... Except for the whole magic girl deal. I'm not even a magic boy." Beat. "....Most of the time."

The matter of his birthday brings him frowning faintly too, and peering off to the side in thought. "I don't know," he says, voice gone a little quieter. "I... Guess I'm not really the type anymore to hold a party just to celebrate... 'me', you know?"
Sayaka Miki 2017-06-09 15:54:03 78258
    Saya giggles and snuggles up to him as she waits for their turn. She still cant get used to this new side of Alex, but she's not minding one bit! "Oh..? Did I just describe you there?" she laughs and nods, "Yeah, strange huh. How we wound up together, trying to find comfort after our exes got together. But I think it turned out okay in the end, right?"
    She chuckles at the whole 'magical boy' remark and shrugs, "Do you..Want to be, a magic boy? I mean, sure it makes it a little easier, and you dont have to feel weak, but there are drawbacks too. For some of us, anyway.."
    However, as for the party thing, she just shakes her head, reaching up to touch his face affectionately, "Well, I'd like to celebrate you, I think that's a pretty big deal in itself. You're here, you're alive. Not so long ago, you thought you were dying. I think that's more than enough to celebrate."
Stahlritter 2017-06-09 16:19:53 78259
"I think I had a lot more going on than getting dumped by my ex though," Alex points out, with a slightly teasing squeeze given around Saya with the arm wrapped along her. "You know... all things considered. It was... a pretty long road and..." He tilts his head over closer to her, and lightly kisses her temple. "...We went through a lot together."

Her words about magical people are considered, and... for a moment, he looks a little sad. "I know," he murmurs. "And I'm... sorry it has to be like that for you. But I'll be here for you." His free hand reaches down over to take one of hers, and squeeze it. "To help you. But... yeah. I'd be lying if I said I didn't... want to have something like what you all have. Power to help people in further ways than all the messups I've had through all these years."

Further on to the party-- he initially bites down at his lip and start sto look away, but when Saya's hand comes touhing along his cheek, his eyes drift back to her way. "...I know," he murmurs quietly, eyes closing and head tipping over to bring him nuzzling at her. "I just... I guess I'm not that good on that kind of stuff. And it's not as if my folks would let me hold a party at the house anyway..." Sheepish look. "I'd honestly just prefer to keep it more simple and quiet, anyway."
Sayaka Miki 2017-06-09 16:26:05 78260
    "Yeah.." Saya nods slowly, "You've been through a lot. But you came out better for it." she smiles, closing her eyes briefly as he kisses her on the temple, enjoying the warm touch of his breath on her skin. Her hand grasps his tightly, "It's okay..My powers are fueled by my wish, and the weight of that wish against whatever grief is left in my heart will determine my ultimate fate. But if you're here with me, then I think I'll be able to keep that grief in check, a lot easier than I had before. I was a bit worried when Madoka-chan and Homura-chan skipped town, as they hold the key to preventing a witch-out..But afterall, Kyouko-chan has lasted a long time without witching out, so maybe.."

    She smiles, "I think it'll be okay. I'm not afraid anymore. I know I can do it." she grins, "I'll bet you'd make a good magical boy, and if its in your destiny, perhaps you'll find a way. And if not, I'm sure you can still cut it out there. We can still train together and stuff, I'd like that. Ever try kendo? It's pretty fun, and useful too. I could teach you if you like, in exchange for giving me some tips on your own style of fighting."

    As for birthday plans, she seems a little disappointed. "Gee, that's too bad. I guess you are a pretty private person, but..I would like to do something special for your birthday.."
Stahlritter 2017-06-09 16:45:34 78262
"I'll do everything I can to make sure that won't happen," Alex assures to her then, in a notably quieter tone of voice - since they are in a more or less public space here - and turns his head to briefly brush his lips against hers. "And anything I can't too, if need be."

"I don't know about me being magic ever, though," he admits sheepishly then, with a quiet sigh. "Seeing how many people have gotten powers while they were so young... people ten years younger than me, even... I dunno. Sometimes I feel like maybe it's too late for me. Like if something was every going ot awaken in my soul, it would have already. It's fine though, I'll just..." His eyes tip downwards. "...Focus on things I can actually deal with."

Her offer and request both are considered for a moment - but not before giving a bit of a *look* at an older couple giving *them* looks - and he admits, "I never really *trained* in handling a sword or anything, but it's not like I haven't--" He lets that sentence fade off and he shakes his head. "Nevermind. That'd be fun, I think, but..." He gives a wry look. "You have to understand my style of fighting is more 'whatever works at the time'.They're talking about making me the captain of the kickboxing club over in Verone, sure, but...."

Her disappointed look makes him pout a little, and he lifts his hand up to ruffle her hair playfully. "That doesn't mean we can't do anything for my birthday," he points out. "And it's not that I'm particularly private or antisocial or anything. Maybe just a lifetime of big grandioese big-money parties kinda made me grow tired of all tha tsorta stuff, is all."

It finally gets to their turn at the ice cream stall, and he's digging underneath his jacket to draw out his wallet. "What flavor do you prefer?"
Sayaka Miki 2017-06-09 16:58:15 78263
    Sayaka smiles. "I know..Thank you, for being you. The REAL you." she nuzzles against him closely, not really caring who sees her displaying public affection for once. As for training in weapons, she chuckles a bit and nods, "Hey, improvised weaponry is pretty cool, can come in handy when you're backed into a corner and short on options. And, kickboxing? That's pretty cool, I think Hannah Sharpe does that too. She's pretty cool, I'm sure you already know her.." Oh wait, he went berserk on her once after she attacked Sakura, didnt he? She laughs a bit nervously at that, scratching the back of her head. "EheheSorry to bring that up, umm.."

    As for acquiring magic at a later age, she shrugs, "Well, I only acquired my magic a year ago, and I'm nearing 15 years so.." she shrugs, and would rather plan for his birthday. "Soo, maybe just small small little thing..I would like to get you a gift though, but I've no idea what kind of stuff to get you.."

    Ah, and finally it's their turn in line! Saya's eyes widen as she peers at the many numerous flavors to choose from, "Aaah, there are sooo many! How do I decide? Erm, how about uh, chocolate mint? Yeah, I can go for something minty!" she grins.
Stahlritter 2017-06-09 17:12:43 78264
Saya might get sheepish when she brings up Hannah, but Alex? HE actually *grins* and notes "I threw a crane at her," with a twinkle in his eye. "She's a great fight, that one. I... weirdly see a lot of myself in her, too. And..." His eyes narrow briefly. "I feel like we're destined to fight again, for some reason."

Then he's smiling at her, and he plants a quick kiss to her mouth again. "You don't have to get me a gift," he murmurs. "You already saved me, even when I told you to kill me. That's better than any trinket."

...Then he remembers that it's their turn at the queue and he lets out a quiet cough, blush working it's way along his cheeks for a moment before he sets a few bills of yen on the counter. "Ahem! Chocolate mint and plain chocolate, then!"
Sayaka Miki 2017-06-09 17:22:18 78265
    Saya arches a brow at his unexpected response. "Heh..Threw a cane at her, did you?" she chuckles and nods, "Well, Hannah really does have some spunk, and for all her questionable actions from time to time, there is definitely something about her that I respect a lot. Maybe that's why I accepted that security job at WPS. And I get that WPS is a little..Shady at times, but y'know? That's exactly why I need to be there, to keep an eye on things, to make sure Hannah doesnt do stupid stuff." she smirks, wondering what his reaction to WPS might be?

    "Aww, really? You dont want one? But I really do want to get you something. I mean, sure I saved your life, but it was really Mamoru-san, and Ami-chan who did most of the work. I just tossed you on their doorstep. I'll need to thank them for that soon, though."
Stahlritter 2017-06-09 17:37:38 78266
"I'm not going to say you can't if you want to," Alex goes on saying, arm drawing away from her shoulders for just long enough that he can reach over and take the offered scoops of ice cream-- the mint one offered in turn to Saya after. And once she has it, his arm returns to it's rightful place around her. "But don't make what you did seem like less than it was, you know? I was... Not in a good state at the time." He actually looks guilty about it. "Anyone would have had been in the right to just cut my head off. The fact that the Shitennou managed what they did was no short of a miracle and no one had any way of knowing it'd work."

He starts leading her away from the ice cream stall, though, and walking along to the general direction of the roller coaster, then, while listening to her talk about WPS. And he looks... confused. "What's... WPS?"
Sayaka Miki 2017-06-09 17:44:17 78267
    Saya nods, "Yeah, I guess you're right. And I know I made you that promise, but..I just couldn't, not knowing that there was still hope for you, and I just couldn't give up on you." She smiles, "Maybe it was a moment of weakness, and I found myself in exactly the same situation as Norie-chan, but I'm glad I made the decision to spare your life, Lexi-chan.." She grins and winks at her newest pet name for him, pulling him close for a snuggle as they head towards the coasters.
    "Hmm, WPS stands for Witch Hunter Protective Services. Being a Puella Magi and a Witch hunter myself, it only made sense that I should team up with Miss White's organization. But it seems they have done some questionable things in the past." she shrugs, "But that's why I'm there, to keep 'em in line!" it's a tall order, WPS is a big and powerful organization, but Saya just happens to be friends with its CEO.
Stahlritter 2017-06-09 17:53:16 78268
"'Chan', huh?" Alex repeats, looking a bit sheepish over that particular petname. "I thought I was a bit too big to be a 'chan' but..." He tilts his head over to plant a quick kiss to the top of her head anyway, especially since she's snuggling so close.

He considers the matter of WPS while he's steadily consuming the ice ream, however. "What... kind of 'questionable things', exactly?" HE asks then. Curiousity's getting the best of him. "And what are they 'supposed' to do?"

    Sayaka mock pouts. "Awwe, you dont like your new pet name? Did you know that Usagi-chan calls her boyfriend Mamo-chan?" she grins and reaches over to tease his hair as she nuzzles in close, but not too close that she'll get ice cream on his shirt. In fact, she's so focused on him that she barely notices her ice cream starting to melt, until a bit piece plops on the ground, melting over her hands.
    "Ack! my ice cream!" and she anxiously tries to mop it up with her napkin, hurriedly biting off pieces of ice cream before it can fall on the ground. "Owww..Head freeze" Rubbing her temples, Saya ponders his next question.
    "Ehhh, well.." she clears her throat, "A while back, it seems they kidnapped Kyouko-chan, and tried to..Uh..Experiment on her. Plus they apparently created artificial grief seeds. But that was a long time ago, and it seems that Hannah-chan and Kyouko-chan have made peace since then, and Hannah is now determined to be..Well, mostly good I hope. With my help, I'll make sure she stays that way."

"I didn't say it's not okay," insists Alex, shifting his head so that he's whispering directly into her ear next. "You can call me anything you like..."

He flashes a mischievous grin at her when he leans away after that whisper and-- his eyes widen with a bit of amusement over her incident with the icecream. Since he's finished his own already, his free hand goes to rub gently at the top of her head. He's helping!

He frowns at her explanation, though. "I did get the sense that there was... something she was doing all this time, too. And when I fought her, this sense of..." Pause. "Something. Wrong. About her. She doesn't seem like a *bad* person, and I hope you're right."

"...Still. Part of me kind of... looks forward to fighting her again. Is that strange?"
Sayaka Miki 2017-06-09 18:13:48 78271
    Saya grins, and nods, "Then, Lex-chan it is!" she chortles, quite proud of her new pet name for him. She munches away at her ice cream some more, a bit more slowly, but pauses, peering at his own. "Hmmmm this is good, did you want to try some? Dont think I touched that bit up there." She points, peering curiously at his, "What flavor did you get?"
    As for Hannah, Saya nods slowly, "Well..Yeah. I mean, currently, there's the whole thing with her linker core. Apparently she's overtaxing her powers, and that's why she was trying to drain others of their linker cores. But of course you probably know all about that."
    Then there's Alex's desire to fight Hannah again and she smirks, shaking her head, "Nah, not at all. She's very competitive. So are you. I'd say it's only natural that you'd feel drawn to her in that respect. And she makes a damn good sparring partner too, I'd think."
Stahlritter 2017-06-09 18:29:02 78273
"I don't really care that much for mint," Alex says to her offer of trying the ice cream. "I'll stick with the plain chocolate here." THe last bit coming with a gesture to the remnants of his ice cream-- which really just comes down to the waffle cone now.

He frowns in silence while she talks about Hannah's situation more, but then finally nods. "I only really knew bits and pieces," he admits. "But... well. I guess it all makes sense now. Sakura kept telling me how we 'need to help her' instead of being angry at her. But... I think perhaps she needed that fight just as much as I did, at the time."
Sayaka Miki 2017-06-09 18:31:43 78274
Sayaka Miki grins, "No worries, all the better for me!" and she's already hungrily munching away at her ice cream, not stopping til she gets to the cone, and then she gobbles that up too! Puella must have big appetites! "Heh, that felt good. Now I'm not quite so hot!" she grins as she peers around, looking for the roller coaster which isnt too hard. It's the biggest ride and hard to miss.
    "SoooShall we go for a ride?" she smiles, reaching out to take his hand. "Hmm, I think you're right. Miss White needed help, not to be beaten. But I think she probably needs to let loose once in a while too, and in that way you both think the same." she smirks, "But there's nothing wrong with letting off a little steam once in a while, just as long as you dont lose it, go overboard."
Stahlritter 2017-06-09 18:49:17 78277
"Some things you can only communicate with your fists," Alex says as he takes Saya's hand and gives it a light squeeze." Just... Certain conflicting emotions that you can't carry with words. Differences that you cannot solve with diplomacy. Deeds that cannot be forgiven with just a lecture. I think both me and Hannah understand that just as well."

Saya's last words bring a more sheepish look on his features though. Just a little guilty, too. ".....Yeah, well...." He coughs, and turns his eyes over to the queue for the coaster. "ANYWAY. Yeah! Rolleroaster, huh?"

Gee, real skillful redirection there, Alexis.
Sayaka Miki 2017-06-09 18:59:38 78278
Sayaka Miki smiles, "Well. I guess I know how that is. I mean, some people are sooo damn stubborn, you just gotta beat some sense into them!" gee, wonder who she's talking about? "But I think I understand what you're saying." she smirks as they slowly head towards the roller coast. "Umm, sooo. you ready for this?" she grins as she reaches the entryway, waiting in line, "Ever been on a roller coaster before? I haven't, so..But I mean, big strong tough puella Magi, so I guess nothing can shake me right?"
Stahlritter 2017-06-09 19:06:14 78279
"See, you under--" Alex starts to say, only to narrow his eyes at Sayaka mid-sentence. "...Right. Exactly." He propmtly sticks his tongue out. Pbbhbhtbht!

When they're in the line, it's thankfully moving fairly fast now, at least, and it's not that long. And he can't help but grin wiiiiiiiide at Sayaka. "I've been plenty," he says. "What, you nervous? Come on-- you're probably used enough to superpowered parkour it won't be that bad for you."
Sayaka Miki 2017-06-09 19:31:56 78282
Sayaka Miki laughs a bit nervously now as she waits in the ever shrinking line. Heck, it's shrinking waaay too quickly now! "Uh....Heeey, I'm puella Magi! I'm serious ass kicking bad girl, I can take on a little...ERr...Roller coaster!" yeah, totally! Still, she clutches his arm a bit tightly, too tightly perhaps. Teeth chattering. Is it cuz of the cold ice cream or is she starting to have second thoughts.?
Stahlritter 2017-06-09 19:43:12 78284
"You know, it's always the least convincing when you have to say it," Alex points out teasingly, and then tugs her along through the entrance and towards the railcar of the rollercoaster! "Come ooon. You'll be fine. And once we're through it I'll give you a real big kiss, alright?" He flashes a grin with that, too. Some encouragement, that.
Sayaka Miki 2017-06-09 22:37:31 78297
Sayaka Miki laughs nervously and nods as she follows after him, climbing into the next seat, waiting for him to join.
    "Well with the promise of a kiss after, I cant complain!" she smiles.
Stahlritter 2017-06-09 22:48:12 78298
And down after Saya Alex goes, scooching onto the seat directly next to her. "I thought as much," he agrees with a deeply-rumbling chuckle, and after pulling the safety bar down for the both of them, he reaches his hand over to take her hand in an effort to offer some kind of reassurance to her. At least she will have something to squeeze on!
Sayaka Miki 2017-06-09 23:00:35 78304
Sayaka Miki smirks as the car starts, "Really, I'll be fine, its just a coaster ride, riiiiiiiight?!" and suddenly they're going fast, climbing higher in the sky, Saya's hand tightly clutching his.
Stahlritter 2017-06-09 23:21:09 78307
"Right, it's just a car going really fast along tracks running in an extremely downward slope," Alex points out with a wide, wiiiide grin flashed. As they reach the very peak of the tracks, he returns the squeeze to her hand then and asks, "You ready?" ... Though they likely start plummeting down before she has the chance to answer, really.
Sayaka Miki 2017-06-09 23:28:48 78308
Sayaka Miki laughs, "Except that I'm not driving that car, and that's what I hate. Not being in controooooooool!!!"
    Then suddenly they're rushing down really fast, and its probably the first time Alex has ever heard her scream in fear.
Stahlritter 2017-06-09 23:35:24 78310
Alex can't help but laugh when they do start going down. He probably shouldn't, but he does. At least he's giving a tight squeeze back to her hand. Once they make the fall fully - and already start moving rapidly up the next one he just loudly hollers out "WHOOOOO!"
Sayaka Miki 2017-06-09 23:45:34 78313
Sayaka Miki squeezes her eyes shut..Until the last minute when they recover from the dip - and tgat wasnt even the worst one!
    Suddenly she starts laughing out loud. "Hah! I wasnt scared at all! bring it on!!"
Stahlritter 2017-06-10 00:05:04 78315
"Of course not," Alex offers in agreement with a wide smile -- even if he might know better, really, but that's not the point. "You won't be beaten by some dumb rolleroaster, right!" A loud sound of laughter from him with that, echoing after Saya's own, just before it goes on descending wildly again." Here we gooooooooooooooo!"
Sayaka Miki 2017-06-10 00:07:14 78317
Sayaka Miki smirks, "Of course not, I've fought monsters bigger than this, so this is nothinnnnnnnnnnnng!!" eeee there they go again, abd she tightly clutches his hand once more, screaming.
Stahlritter 2017-06-10 00:21:12 78322
And the whole time, Alex just laughs. He's way happier than he should be.

When the ride eventually reaches the end, there's adrenaline pumping through him, and he's still laughing. Though he does look at Saya with some sympathy too, and he's gently rubbing along her hand with his thumb when they climb out. "That wasn't too bad, was it?"
Sayaka Miki 2017-06-10 00:31:30 78324
Sayaka Miki smiles, her heart pumping rapidly as she climbs wobbly to her feet. "Ehegehe...I was totally not scared! Totally!"
    Still, she grabs ontk his arm to steady herself, still feeling like jello but not wanting to admit it.        "Did you have fun? What's next?@
Stahlritter 2017-06-10 00:35:47 78327
"I know you weren't," Alex claims with a faint smile, though there's an amused tone there regardless while he's guiding her out of the roller coaster's grounds.

Then she asks that. And he stops suddenly, pivoting himself to turn to face her, wtih his arms wrapping around her to help her stay steadied. And pulled against him. "What's next is something I promised," he murmurs, and draws one hand up to brush it along her cheek as he leans over to give a firm kiss onto her lips.
Sayaka Miki 2017-06-10 00:45:03 78330
Sayaka Miki laughs, "Heh! I totally wasnt, really! In fact I'm totally wanting to check out the ferris wheel next! err..Though maybe we can try the teacups first?"
    Butcthen theres that and she smiles, leaning in close. "hmm I almost forgot.." and she smiles, leaning in clise, eyes clised as she presses her lips against his..
Stahlritter 2017-06-10 00:50:16 78331
This kiss Alex holds for a longer time than before, with his fingers idly brushing along and through Saya's hair until he eventually does break it off-- but he still stays hovering close, nose nuzzling against hers. "Worth it, right?" He murmurs quietly, eyes slowly opening to give a vaguely mischievous look to her. "So would you rather the ferris wheel or the--" Beat. "...Teacups, though? Really?"
Sayaka Miki 2017-06-10 01:21:32 78335
Sayaka Miki smiles, still holding his hands, lips lingering on that kiss. "Hmmm, teacups sound fun." gives her a chance to recover her queasy stomach.
Stahlritter 2017-06-10 01:38:31 78337
"Mmm, alright," Alex murmurs, giving a squeeze to both of her hands before drawing backwards slowly, tugging on them lightly to bring her along with him. "As far as dates go, this is going pretty well, yeah? No monsters at least."
