Rooftop Burger Dates are... romantic...?

Reiko is upset after a bunch of stuff the past months. Luckily, Ikiko helps sort some things out. Also, when did Ikiko get tiny wolf motes!?

Reiko Touyama wanted burgers. Reiko knows about the Burger Bar. She knows there's boxes setup on top as to look inconspicuous for magical girls to sit on and eat burgers. Thusly, Reiko transformed, went to buy burgers, obtained them. Flew to the top to sit on one of those boxes and has no less than ten burgers ready. Wait, ten?

Uh oh. Someone isn't very happy right now it seems.

She figets a bit as she mutters. "Stupid...Prisms... stupid... Shades..." she mutters to herself as she waits for Ikiko. She's sitting on on of the longer boxes. Enough space for Ikiko to sit beside her, even! She's at least hoping for it, it seems.

Cute Wolf Tsukiko bounds over, waving to the guy behind the counter before heading up to join Reiko on the roof. She sits next to Orange, giving her a hug and a kiss on the cheek.

"Got here as soon as I could, Reiko-chan," the wolfgirl smiles, sliding one of the burgers over in front of her. "What's on your mind?"
Reiko Touyama 2017-07-17 02:52:22 80528
Orange blushed profusely, like she always did. But actually, she needed that hug and kiss on the cheek, but she is a mess as she eats a burger. Yeah. She wasn't waiting for Ikiko to get here, but she does make sure Ikiko gets one right away.

"J--just the concert." she says quietly. "Upset that Sumire doesn't like what's happened. I think she might think I ruined her life." she says quietly. "She at least hasn't answered any of my phone calls. I mean. Not like. She's quick to pick up. But she usually does at least once." she says hesitantly.

"Or at least even her agent does." she wilts.

She gently leans against Ikiko. "Lots of other stuff too..." she says.
Ikiko Hisakata 2017-07-17 03:01:34 80531
Cute Wolf Tsukiko takes a few bites out of her burger as she listens to Reiko, then puts down the burger and wraps an arm around the younger girl. "She might need some time to come to terms with it," the wolfgirl points out as the wolf-motes nibble on the burger. "Or maybe have someone else try talking to her, if waiting doesn't work."

She leans her head against Reiko's. "What else is on your mind?" Tsukiko inquires.
Reiko Touyama 2017-07-17 03:07:23 80532
Orange mutters. "I spoke to Ayana-chan." she says softly. "She says it's fine and it's not my fault about things." she says softly. "That she's just trying to figure things out. Still feel bad. Because I want to help." she says. "But can't really..." she says.

"Not with something like that." she says as she eats more of her burger.

"I mean. I feel better. It's not my fault? But I feel bad feeling that way." she shifts with a blush a bit.

"Also I stink at saying things." she mutters.
Ikiko Hisakata 2017-07-17 03:16:25 80534
Another kiss for Orange, this time on the corner of the forehead. "Personal journeys are at that awkward point where it most feels like helping is the right thing to do... while being something where external assistance isn't much help," Tsukiko admits.

"And there's nothing wrong with feeling relief that something's not your fault," she adds. "You had a concern, and it turned out that the concern was unfounded. Perfectly reasonable to relax from that, even if relaxing can be hard to tell apart from feeling actively happy."

The wolf-motes move away from the burger as Tsukiko picks it back up and takes a few more bites, although some of them hover near the drips on the wrapper and seemingly lap at them.
Reiko Touyama 2017-07-17 03:36:41 80538
Orange nods a bit. "Yeah..." she says quietly with a soft smile. "I'm sure she'll figure it out. I just hope she'll come for help is she needs it." she says as she puts her burger down gently to give Ikiko a hug, and her own peck on the cheek. Then she blinks over Ikiko's shoulder.

A koi appears near one of the motes. It looks at the mote. It looks back to Reiko, to the mote, before it makes a 'pointed shrug' at it, like it doesn't know what to make of it.

"...Ikiko-chan why do you have tiny wolf thingys following you around...?" she asks softly.
Ikiko Hisakata 2017-07-17 04:01:19 80540
The mote looks back at the koi, leaning forward as it seems to sniff at the fish. In comparison, the size difference is obvious, as is the sharpness; each mote is a mostly-blurry tan speck barely the size of a pinkie fingernail.

"Remember that massive wave of nightmares last month?" Tsukiko asks. "I was one of the ones who helped stop it, although those of us there were all briefly trapped in our own worst nightmares. Mine involved... my lycanthropy getting the better of me."

She glances at her left wrist, as if expecting to see a glowing bracelet of sorts. "Mamoru, Kazuo, and Ariel helped us break free, and in the process of escaping my nightmare I apparently pulled the wolves out of it, causing them to turn into... these," the wolfgirl explains as the 5-11 of them float over to take a closer look at Reiko. "As far as I can tell, they only show up when I'm Tsukiko, and the number of them depends on the phase of the moon -- about 9 to 19 during a full moon, down to 1 to 3 during a new moon. They can tear through chunks of dark energy, but don't seem to do a lot of damage to dark monsters; at most, they can harry youma."

She giggles as a handful of mote nuzzle the koi. "All in all, certainly not as strong or as versatile as your koi, Reiko," Tsukiko points out.
Reiko Touyama 2017-07-18 03:44:44 80573
Orange blinks a bit as the koi nuzzle the koi beings making 'halp!' motions and flailing and acting like it's allergic to dogs. Which they're not, because Reiko sure isn't! She thinks back. "Ugh. That.. stuff was... a thing? I just thought I was having really bad nightmares. I don't really. Dream so much of things as places. Like. Nightmare... Dead aquariums and stuff." she says.

She hesitantly pokes a finger out to try to pet one. Just to see what happens.

"H--have you shown Ayana yet?"

"I think she'd find this super silly and great..." she says with giggle.
Ikiko Hisakata 2017-07-18 03:53:48 80576
A mote leans over and rubs against Reiko's finger. The feeling is like rubbing slightly warm lint, like a fuzzy bit of light.

"I'm not sure about all of the details," Tsukiko admits with a shrug. "Something about a prince of nightmares, who was trying to make the entire world suffer like he did."

She thinks about the suggestion. "Haven't shown them to her yet -- the times I've visited, I haven't done so as Tsukiko, so the motes haven't been visible."
Reiko Touyama 2017-07-18 04:04:14 80582
Prism Keeper Orange has this vivid mental picture of foxy Ayana trying to snuggle all the motes and maybe try to mother over them and things like that and she can't help but smile and giggle insanely about. She gently coughs and calms down though before she rolls to the ground or off the side of the burger stand's roof.

She kind of wants to try to take one home but she knows these things don't work that way.

But she'd name it some sterotypical wolfname like. SILVEREYES or something.

She's gonna be busy drawing when she gets home for sure.

"Well I hope if you show her, it'll be a good thing..." she says quietly. "They feel nice at least. Weird!" she giggles.
Ikiko Hisakata 2017-07-18 04:12:19 80585
Cute Wolf Tsukiko tilts her head slightly at Orange's bout of giggling, but doesn't say anything as she munches on her burger.

"Not sure whether it'd be better to introduce them to her during a new moon, when there's the fewest of them... or during a full moon, when all of them are present," the wolfgirl muses as a couple of the motes nuzzles against Orange's cheek. "Either way, I'll definitely make sure to bring it up sooner than later."
Reiko Touyama 2017-07-18 04:30:34 80591
Prism Keeper Orange thinks. "It's hard because Ayana's mood seems kind of fickle. You could grab her for the fewest, but she might had wanted to see them all. But you could grab her for the most, but not when she was ready for them." she says gently.

"-and with such a long planning window.... why not. Aim for half...?" she asks hesitantly.

She smiles some gently. Eeeee a nuzzle~

"I just hope I can get Sumire to... to accept. This. It's gonna be hard. If she's just being attacked all the time by Griselda and she refuses to transform..." she says quietly.
Ikiko Hisakata 2017-07-18 04:37:29 80593
"Half, huh? Sounds as good as anything," Tsukiko muses. "And it'd certainly fit the 'sooner than later' approach."

She gives Orange another hug. "Necessity will undoubtedly force her first few transformations," the wolfgirl points out. "Whether or not she wants to transform, being attacked by Shades and other youma will mean that she has to transform."
Reiko Touyama 2017-07-18 04:46:01 80595
Prism Keeper Orange frowns. "Worst case scenario she starts using the transformation in her pop shows and stuff." she huffs. "And .. and Prism Aegis wasn't written as a Pop Idol Magical girl story!" she whinnnnes. "it's not prepped for that!" she insists.

"Ugh. I'm sure we'll figure it out."

She leans. "Thanks for coming, Tsukiko." she says quietly. "I feel a lot better. Not. Fully okay. But better!" she smiles wide.
Ikiko Hisakata 2017-07-18 04:53:04 80597
Cute Wolf Tsukiko gives Orange a big hug. "Glad I could help, Reiko-chan," she murmurs. "Hope you feel the rest of the way better soon!"

She nuzzles Orange, then gives the younger girl a quick kiss--

    --right on the corner of the mouth! *chu~!* <3

The wolfgirl turns and takes two more burgers with her as she bounds off, leaving a stunned and blushing Reiko in her wake!
