Two blind girls hash it out in the park. Punches make good apologies, right?

It's a rather nice day out this sunday afternoon. It's warm, but not too hot, the sky is only a bit overcast giving patches of nice cool shade here and there as clouds lazily stroll by. Leaning against the giant penguin is Takara, silently drawing loops and whorls in the soft bark dust with her cane, waiting for Hannah to show up.

She had sent Hannah a letter, typed in braille, instructing her to meet Takara here, at this time. She will come alone so there shouldn't be any interference to whatever kind of retribution Hannah would seek to take.

Hannah Sharpe runs her fingers down the letter, vaguely agape. She's being called out by the one that hurt Raging Tempest. Somehow, the absurdity of it all dulls any lingering murderous rage.


There's a big bark from a husky to herald Hannah's arrival. She's dressed in a pair of shorts and a tracksuit top, holding Boris' leash and whistling as she makes it up to the Penguin. Boris helpfully lets out another bark, and a mental prod.

"You know, I think you're the first person to /ask/ me to come beat them into the pavement. What's your game, Takara?"
Takara Himura 2017-07-02 22:58:34 79877
Takara Himura cocks her head, honestly puzzled at the question. "Game?" she asks. "No game. Look," she says, pulling herself away from the penguin to stand straight and to face the other blind girl. "Nobody explained to me what Devices were," she says. "I'm still new to the whole... thing and when somebody asked me to help out to save you I jumped at the chance. If I had known I wouldn't have done what I did and so...." With this she bows stiffly and deeply at the waist, "I'm sorry, please forgive me."

"And if you still feel you need to beat me up to make things even I won't stop you."
Hannah Sharpe 2017-07-02 23:22:43 79881
Hannah can hear the bow, that tone in Takara's voice. Arms cross, and she taps her feet for just a moment. And then, the rather silent young woman is walking right up to Takara.

"Are you STUPID!?" Howls Hannah, as she tries to find Takara's collar and yank her back up. Then she's shoving towards the Penguin. She tries to devour personal face to the point of almost poking noses.

"You hurt my friend out of ignorance, send me a /letter/ to drag me out here, and now you're telling me you're just going to sit there and take it like some wimp!?"

Then she's backing up, and both arms open wide. Her tone could easily convey the aggressive motion.

"If you want me to accept your apology, then the first thing you're going to do is hit me as hard as you can!" Comes Hannah, seething.
Takara Himura 2017-07-02 23:33:38 79883
Takara Himura stumbles backwards, and blinks, feeling Hannah's breath on her lips and cheeks as she gets ranted at. This.... was not how she thought this would go down. Still. The gauntlet has been thrown. "Fine," she sasys, gripping her cane in both hands, and then exhales, centering herslef.

When she strikes, it's lightning quick. She uses her cane as she would her sword, in that strange underhanded grip that she uses. The tip nearly wistles in the air due to she sheer speed of the strike, slashing across Hannah's chest. If it had been a real blade, the cut would easily have been fatal, but since the tip of the cane is made of rubber the most it would do would be to leave a nasty bruise.
Hannah Sharpe 2017-07-02 23:39:21 79885
WHUMP! A grunt of pain, and then silence. Slowly, slowly, Hannah smiles.

"That's better. Now we get to the beating part!"

She steps back a step, raises her hands, and then she's launching into a textbook kick aimed for Takara's side. The young woman isn't holding back either, two athletic young woman vying now that the challenge is down.

"So why'd you agree to help Mamo-kun anyway? What are you getting out of it? You a fan of the Boys, or are you like a Pretty Cure?"
Takara Himura 2017-07-02 23:45:44 79886
Takara Himura pivots and parries the kick with her cane, but the flexible material that the cane is made out of really does little to slow the kick down. "It was RashmOOF!" she says as the kick lands on her side, causing her to stumble a bit. "It was Rashmi," she continues. "I hadn't even met Mamoru until afterwards."

She pivots and strikes again, this time a downward slice towards the collarbone. "I help people," she explains. "That's my job. Usually not in the waking world and usually not by beating up on the people I'm trying to help."
Hannah Sharpe 2017-07-03 00:12:13 79891
"Oh, I get it. So Rashmi dragged you in? I guess I can't blame you if you were..." Pivot, slice! Hannah brings up her arms just in time. Her forearms will have a nasty bruise. She nimbly sidesteps, and then aims a series of quick jabs for Takara's stomach!

"Nnngh! Dragged into this by your friends. Huh? Well I hate to say it, but punching problems is kind of a magical girl byword! Just ask any Pretty Cure or their enemies."

Pause. "Waking world?"
Takara Himura 2017-07-03 00:23:50 79895
Takara Himura does what she can to block the punches. Her fighting style isn't much for drawn out fights. Quick. Clean. Short. "Guh! What is wrong with you?" she asks, sounding a bit annoyed. "I'm not trying to avoid blame. I hurt someone dear to you and that was wrong of me!" Hannah's pause, however, could be a huge mistake as Takara whips her cane around to take advantage of it. "Yeah! I normally fight corruption and nightmares in in people's dreams!"
Hannah Sharpe 2017-07-03 00:34:03 79897
"Huh? Who said you were? You're here and finally fighting. That's good enough for me, and good enough for R.T."

Smirk. "Oh, and you're going to apologize to R.T. too once we can talk again."

Lash! That cane whips around just as she pauses, hitting her right on the shoulder! She winces. That hurts! A pained laugh. "Hey, you're not bad Takara!" A series of two kicks, one for the face, the other for the side!

"I was just interested in why you were doing things. Next time just make sure you choose your targets better, okay? In people's dreams, that's a weird power! But I guess weird things are a dime a dozen here in Tokyo!"
Takara Himura 2017-07-03 00:42:12 79900
Takara Himura isn't nearly as good as she is in the dream realm or powered up in Henshin form and it's beginning to show. She blocks the first kick to her side but the one to her face lands squarely on her jaw. It's enough to stagger her to the ground, and she scrambles backwards to keep out of range of the pugilist whhile she tries to clear her head.

"I... UNGH... I will," she agrees. "Thank you. You're not bad yourself."
Hannah Sharpe 2017-07-03 01:05:25 79903
Down poor Takara goes, in a stumble, and Hannah finally sighs. "You're not nearly aggressive enough though. Alright. Let's get serious and finish this. How about we pick up some ice cream before we haul off to Mamo-kun's place, alright? I'll try not to break anything too important."

A hand reaches out, and throws poor Takara up less than helps her up. Then she's on the other girl. Quick jabs, jukes, and a series of feinting kicks are aimed for the girl! And then she drops her defense! Hannah is wide open!

Mostly because she's winding for a brutal, hard uppercut for poor Takara's abused jaw. This time, it's with every bit of anger and anguish she felt at R.T. being hurt. There's no holding back this time.
Takara Himura 2017-07-03 01:20:33 79906
It's really all Takara can do to keep herself from getting seriously hurt. Her arms are up absorbing the majority of the blows, and occasionally landing a nasty lash with the cane. "Ice cream sounds... GUNGH.... good," she manages between blows. "It'll probably be the only thing I can eat when we're done."

Then Hannah leaves herself open! The beating that Takara has taken has shaken her concentration to the point that, had she been paying attention, she would have seen the ruse for what it is. As it is, she takes advanatage of the opening, striking with that inhuman speed of hers, only to find that it's interrupted by a fist to her jaw.

Takara sails back, blood and spittle marking the arc her head travels as she lands on her back, splayed out and fighting for consciousness. She just lays there, breathing hard, and then bursts out laughing when she can finally think straight. "My mom is gonna be so pissed off at me."
Hannah Sharpe 2017-07-03 01:35:19 79907
As the dust of Takara's thud ends, Hannah's over. She's breathing hard, and rubbing where she's been struck. Not much stamina, but Takara hits /hard/. With a contented smile, she leans down, and is hauling up Takara gently. There's a handkerchief pressed to her hand.

"There. Apology accepted, Takara-chan. Friends?" A squeeze of the shoulder.

"Oh don't worry, you can say you were spending the night at a friend's. So. The most important question."

A black car pulls up outside the park. She'll help Takara in.

"Chocolate, vanilla, or strawberry?"

To ice cream! And then, Mamo's place.
