Takara Himura has a booth to herself at the Korma, though there are two places set. She sits there, nervously toying with the condensation on the glass of her water, waiting for the other person to arrive. She had sent an anonymous note to Lacrima, asking her to join her here. She was careful to tone it business-like, and not, like, stalkery lovesick secret admirer type, especially when she noted that she'll pay for the food.

So now she waits for Lacrima to arrive. She's giving it 20/70 odds that she won't and that she'll be eating alone this afernoon.

Lacrima has gotten such notes stuffed into her locker before, as Norie. Norie is one of those quite wallflower types. Which means that someone guys (and perhaps girls) like that. But this is business sounding. She has OTHER reasons to arrive here for such a worded letter. Rashmi-chan. Seth. Kunzite or Mamoru. Though she didn't recognize the hand writing-- if it was handwritten, or identify it's source, if not, so thusly, she came.

Regardless, she's shown up in pretty dress as she sweeps around the room. No Rashmi-chan. No Seth. No one she recognizes from work. No Kunzite, or Mamoru. There is however.

Her. The blind samurai girl. She grates her teeth a little. Ugh. She doesn't want to deal with this girl. This girl who ruined things for her. She's calm now. Mamoru DID things. She doesn't want to destroy it all by speaking to this girl.

Still...

She walks forward with a soft frown.

"I take it. That was your letter?" she asks in a less than glad or happy tone.

Takara Himura's eyebrows furrow at the voice. On the one hand she's glad that Lacrima showed up so she could get this done. On the other hand this is going to be very unpleasant for everybody. "Yes," she says. "I... I didn't know how else to reach you." Her accent and manner of speech is more formal, polite than the last time they met, with only a hint of her American accent.

"I'm not expecting you to stay, or to sit with me, but afterwards... if you want to eat I left them my credit card number so the food will be on me." She scoots out from the table so she can stand, and bow formally to the vampire. "I... I apologize for what I did." she says. "It was stupid of me and I hurt you, and I don't know what I can do to make amends." Her voice is soft, filled with the shame that she feels.

Lacrima frowns and grabs the hem of her skirt and pulls it up as she sits down. She frowns a little. But she still does sit. After she stands and bows.

She frowns. "It's not even... the fact of what you showed me. That hurt me. It was...."

"Ever since I've been this thing. Everyone describes being able to handle it as 'being easy'." she says sourly.

"And judging me based on that perceived fact that. It's easy. Being what I am." she says.

"People upset at me. For draining people for sustenance. Because it's 'so easy' to not do that. When it isn't." she says sourly.

"It isn't easy to make a new family." she says. "It isn't simple. or basic." she says quietly.

"All I've done when I've become this thing. Is just. Lose things. Just lose, and lose, and rarely gain." she says quietly.

"No I wasn't..." begins Takara with a scowl, before seating herself back down once she hears Lamya sitting in the booth. "I'm sorry," she apologizes again. "I wasn't trying to tell you any of that... that it was easy." She chews on a lower lip in worry and her fingers drift back to her glass of water to trace whorls in the condensation.

"I was trying to...." she stops herself. "No, it doesn't matter what it was that I was trying to do." she concludes. "I just thought I could help, and I'm a boneheaded idiot who should've known better to do something like that with a stranger."
Lacrima 2017-07-25 03:52:30 80895
Lacrima frowns. "You did infer that it was easy for someone like me to do that. If I could just...choose my family. I'd know who I'd 'chose' but I know they won't accept. Too many. Issues. problems. Drama to be caused." she says silently.

"Regardless. I will drop it. You shouldn't tell people where their fates lie like that. Not until you know how they'll take it. Not unless you have fixes and foresight on what to do next." she says softly as she shifts.

"I will just have a basic, little spicy, Japaense curry." she says plainly. Boring is good right now for her. "Extra large." because she needs all she can get right now. "With a lassi."
Takara Himura 2017-07-25 04:00:30 80896
"Yeah," agrees Takara. "I... I have a habit of leaping before looking." She raises her head to give Lacrima a weak smile. "Because I can't look. Because I'm blind, right?" She tries to laugh at her own lame joke but her heart just isn't in it.

She nods, and flags down the waitress to give her thier orders, ordering herself some red curry, extra spicy, and a lassi for herself as well. "I know that dinner won't make up for the damage I've done, and... I'm probably not the best person to call on in an emergency, but I'm serious when I say you let me know what I can do to make amends."
Lacrima 2017-07-25 04:23:18 80897
Lacrima frowns. "There's nothing you can do for me." she says bluntly. "I have people to call for help. I still need to talk to this Akashimaru about things anyways." she says quietly as she shifts a vit uncomfortably as she waits for food.

"If you wanting to do. Things. Sure. Whatever. Not like I have to deal with family issues at the moment. Movies. or whatever. But. I don't need help like that." she says quietly.

"I think it's best you forget about it for now until you know me better." she says quietly.
Takara Himura 2017-07-25 04:30:24 80898
"Okay," Takara says. She seems, perhaps, a bit hurt that the vampire doesn't think she's even capable of helping, but swallows her pride. The lassis come, first and Takara sips on hers. "I... um... don't really do movies, unless they're really talky. It can be hard to follow what's going on when you can't see the screen."
Lacrima 2017-07-25 05:04:46 80899
Lacrima frowns. "There's movies with Audio Description." she says frankly. "Do you not like using that? If not. Fine." she says. "There's other things we can do. I eat a lot. or will eat anything. So the answer to: 'Do I want to go out to eat' is usually 'yes'." she says flatly again.

She sips her lassi a bit as she sighs.

"To be frank. This is a good reaction from me." she says sourly. "There was a time I wouldn't bother." she says. "I would had just left. Or attacked you." she says.
