Studying Seth via Sayaka-chan.

Seth is apparently a vampire now and she hasn't made another one since Alexis-kun. So she goes and talks to Sayaka-chan, who may know something.

The first few stars are just coming out, and Sayaka had recovered enough to climb onto the rooftop, laying on the edge as she stares up at the skies. She is still a little weak, but getting a bit better every day.
Lacrima 2017-07-22 00:00:44 80787
Lacrima desires to speak to Sayaka Miki. She knows that this would be her last known whereabouts, so she's trying at Mamoru's apartment first. She appears in a short burst of dark energy a few feet off the ground and lands with a click of heels. She doesn't lick rubbing dark energy over the ground proper here. Just in case.

She is wearing her usual fancy dress. She felt fancy today. And also. Regality sometimes make people listen to what you have to say. She has no idea if it'll help with Sayaka-chan.

She is about to head downstairs to see when she sees that splash of bluenette hair in her peripheral.

She stops and turns as she begins to walk towards Sayaka.

"Sayaka-chan?" she asks softly.
Sayaka Miki 2017-07-22 00:04:53 80789
Sayaka Miki sighs, folding her arms behind her back as she reaches a hand to the sky, trying to count all the stars in the sky. Eventually she gives up with a frown, and is about to close her eyes for another nap - she's still not fully recovered - When she hears a familiar voice. "Norie-chan? Is that you? What's up?"
Lacrima 2017-07-22 00:08:28 80790
Lacrima walks over. "Yes, it is me." she says quietly as she walks over, and has a seat next to Sayaka. "Kunzite has told me that you were the victim of some sort of vampire attack." she says softly. She knows who is responsible. And the details of it in so far as Kunzite and Mamoru know which she's head from them.

"I wished to check up on you. I know it wasn't... me? And I haven't. Turned? Anyone. Since Alexis-kun." she says softly.

"So. I do not know. What this could be." she says quietly.

"Can you. Tell me what you know?"
Sayaka Miki 2017-07-22 00:16:04 80793
Sayaka Miki sighs, staring back at the stars, pondering that for a moment. "Yea, an energy vampire, I guess. He...Kissed me, sucked my energy." she frowns, rubbing her temples. "Head still fuzzy, got a headache, but I remember." she glances back at Norie. "He is..Was a friend. Not sure what he us now. I dont know why he..Attacked me. Why he didnt just ask me for help. If I tell you who it is, you must promise you wont attack him.."
Lacrima 2017-07-22 00:23:59 80795
Lacrima frowns. "I already know it's Seth." she says quietly. "And thusly, if I was intending to attack him, I would had done so by now. But I have not." she says.

"I was told. He kissed you.. for. Comfort." she says. "Did you allow that?" she asks quietly.

"I'm trying to. Discern about his condition. Though. I have some good theories." she says quietly.

She frowns just a little. She has other things to say, but. She keeps them for the moment back. "What was happening before that?" she asks.
Sayaka Miki 2017-07-22 00:29:59 80797
Sayaka Miki frowns. "I...No, I told him to stop. I.." She grits her teeth turning away. "Is it really necessary to know the details?" she shrugs, "He texted me saying he needed help. And I wanted to help him. He had a heart condition..I guess I was unable to hesl him and his mad scientist dad must have done..Something to him.."
Lacrima 2017-07-22 00:39:22 80799
Lacrima frowns. "I know his father works for the same people I do. But he is on a different project. And I do not wish to give Riventon-sama a headache by drawing attention to his division." she says. She frowns. "Yes. Yes it is important." she says quietly. "Seth was like... that. Before the dark energy. He thinks he is a hero in some game. And when he rescues the princess. He's 'owed' things. Like kisses. and dates." she says.

"This behavior encourages dark energy. It is not surprised that. He thought. Kissing you would make things better."

"I would have a talk with Alexis soon about this. As. If he hears it from another source. It could ruin things, Sayaka-chan. If you need me there to keep things cool, I will do so. But. Hearing this third hand. Problems." she asides.

She shakes her head. "I'm certain his 'heart condition' isn't so much a condition as tied to this dark energy affair now in some manner. That is, I believe it is magical in nature."

"I'm wondering if he still has a human body, or if he's a dark energy construct like I am." she muses quietly. She taps her foot. "Regardless. He drains people for energy now. Like I do." she sighs. "I wonder if he's required to..or not, though..." she mutters.
Sayaka Miki 2017-07-22 00:46:29 80801
Sayaka Miki sits up a bit, staring at Lacrima, frown deepening. "Just a minute, Norie-chan. If you're gonna insist on talking to Lex-chsn about this, I'd appreciate being there. He might get the wrong idea. Its true, I DID go on a single date with Seth-kun, back when everything seemed hopeless, and Lex-chan had reoeatedly rejected me, and Amu-chan calied me when I was drunk, insistant on setting me up on a 'blind date' to cheer me up. But I shouldnt be judged for that. And I have a right to explain that to Lex-chan before he misunderstands..."
    She pauses, "Wait, what? You work for the same people? Why? I thought you were above all that.." eyes narrow warily.
Lacrima 2017-07-22 00:51:42 80803
Lacrima blinks. "That's. What I'm saying. Sayaka-chan. YOU need to be the one to tell him." she says flatly. "I am merely offering to be there. In case things go sour." she says. She shifts a bit as she huffs.

"Yes. I do. Those people gave me an easier life, Sayaka-chan." she says flatly. "I do not know if you haven't noticed but there isn't a lot of options for things like me." she says. "To go for help." she offers.

She frowns a little. "But most of them specialize in the type of energy I use. What Seth uses now." she says. "And frankly. Seth doesn't need to be corralled in to that either."
Sayaka Miki 2017-07-22 00:55:50 80805
Sayaka Miki arches a brow. "Hmm. Okay, fair enough." she nods, "I've been a little out of sorts, its taking longer than expected to recover, but I'll takk to him, okay? I just need some time.."
    She nods slowly. "So what, this organization is helping you? Really? Or are you just surviving at te expense of others..?" she eyes her warily. "But the matter remains, they changed Seth-kun, did..Something to him. And it both frightens and angers me. But.." she sighs, "I'm not sure to do about it. Ive already helped him as much as I can.."
Lacrima 2017-07-22 01:11:42 80807
Lacrima nods. "Yes. Recover. But soon. Okay? If. He hears. Through someone else first. I'll... try to smooth it over. But only then." she says curtly.

"It sounds like it was an attempt at a cure gone sour." she says. "Rather than something on purpose." she says. "But... Dark energy is rarely a cure." she says. "It's usually the cause. At least to humans." she says. "Dark energy is a cure, for me. But I am made of dark energy. It may be a cure to Seth now, as he uses it now." she says flatly.

"There is nothing you can do Sayaka-chan." she says softly. "This is out of your hands now. You can't 'heal' what he is now. Not unless you can wield purification magic. And even then, we're not sure if that'll kill him or heal him yet." she says.
Sayaka Miki 2017-07-22 01:17:46 80810
"No.." she sighs, "I can only heal wounds, not purify dark energy. I cannot begin to understand what happened to him but, given to your position, perhaps you can, Norie-chan.." she peers at her thoughtfully.
    "I dont like the feeling of being powerless. He is my friend afterall. Or was. I dont know if I can forgive his taking energy against my will, but I have to do something.."
    She sighs, "I just dont know. I just need to stay away, talk to Lex-chan..You think he'll be mad with me?"
Lacrima 2017-07-22 01:21:39 80811
Lacrima frowns. "Mad. At you? No. Mad, at Seth? Probably." she says. "That wasn't your fault...I'm... I'm happy. To hear that. Because of that. I was afraid. When Mamoru and Kunzite told me what happened." she says quietly. Then she shifts at that.

"Sayaka-chan." she says quietly. "If. This was. His first energy drain. He may not have had as much control as he'd hoped. But we need to know for sure. If. If he can be lucid. Like I'm capable of when I'm not... needing to drain energy. Then maybe we can figure out if he can behave." she says.

"But yes. Keep away. Talk to Alexis-kun. He won't be mad at you. It wasn't your fault. You were helping a friend. He took advantage." she says sourly.
Sayaka Miki 2017-07-22 01:30:22 80814
Sayaka Miki sighs, clenching her fists. "Yeah..Maybe. I just..I hate feeling so helpless. And I'm so tired. Of piutting my life on the line to save others, Maybe its selfish, but I just need a break from playing hero."
    She nods slowly, glancing at Lacrima curiously. "Perhaps if you talked to him, he might understand. Seth that is. I guess I need to call Lex-cgan..Havent heard from him for a while. I hope he's okay. And..I hope Seth-kun is okay. I did him a disservice too.."
Lacrima 2017-07-22 01:50:30 80816
Lacrima head tilts. "Call him. Regularly, please." she says softly. "Alexis-kun that is. If he doesn't you. Regular contact is important in a relationship, Sayaka-chan." she says quietly.

She fidgets a little. She sighs a bit. "Seth yes. I intend to find him eventually. And find out what I can about his condition. Dark energy, I /do/ understand." she says. "And he needs to make an effort to stop doing things to feed it. Or find different outlets." she says quietly.

"I had to make changes in my life. He does too, if he's going to start getting to some form of normal again." she says.

She sighs a bit. "I should let you rest." she says softly as she begins to stand.
