Lacrima 2017-10-24 03:57:23 85373
Lacrima has managed to mostly keep herself sane and coherent since last night at the mall. She's found herself at the park sort of staring off into the tree line of the small woodsed area in it. She's looking towards a very specific spot wherein something horrible happened to Alexis and she had to fix it and it was unpleasant for everyone for months.

She shakes her head out of it as she sits there on the bench. She is sort of dolled up right now. Fancy dress and all and what not. She isn't hunting right now.

At least.

She has her parasol with her which is playing the part of Umbrella because the sky is awful and cloudly and it looks like it might rain but it hasn't yet.

This only works to cast further shade on her self in the late afternoon as she purses her lips down at the ground now.

Not the best looking of moods. But at least she isn't locking herself up in her coffin or the basement on hours on end.

Yet.
Dragon Lamya 2017-10-24 04:05:50 85374
This park has become something of a second home to the dragon Lamya. Something about the nature and the large pond soothes the ancient beast, so it's not surprising to find her wandering about here. Amid her wanderings (and occasional snackings upon small animals) she spies her roommate and, well, the closest thing to a friend she has.

She studies Lacrima for a moment, noting that distant stare, and the goth lolita dress and decides that she should join her.

"Hello!" she says, pleasantly enough as she sits herself next to her roommate, smoothing out her own skirt.
Kukai Souma 2017-10-24 04:10:19 85375
Kukai Souma is out again tonight, having a better day than the last one. It's not hard, really - nice cheerful easygoing day with no work or anything, a quiet patrol in the park, and in fact the only thing that annoys him today is the fact that Nadeshiko has been out of town for way too long.

So when Kukai sees Lacrima and Lamya standing together, both of them dressed up, he sighs and hopes the day continues to be just as good. It's not hard for him to make his way over towards them, looking over at the place where Lacrima is staring, even though there's nothing there. "Hello again. How're you two doing?"
Jiaying Maki 2017-10-24 04:13:04 85376
Jiaying Maki herself is at this moment, not actually following Norie to make sure nothing goes wrong. This time it's coincidence. She's actually sitting off to the side, headphones on and loud. One would think she wouldn't need it that loud with her ears, but it's metal and it has to go up to 11! Or she's just drowning things out while she works on a sketch. The figure walking past gets her attention, spotting a familiar face. She raises her hand, then spots the otehr two. The book is snapped shut. she rubs the bridge of her nose and stands up to make her way over. Headphones are pulled down around her neck and she follows along quietly for now. There is a hand raised behind Kukai though.
Lacrima 2017-10-24 04:26:35 85377
Lacrima softly looks away from the ground she'd started staring at as... people begin arriving. She sighs a bit as she looks to Lamya first. "Hello Lamya-chan." she says softly. "How are you?" she asks. She's being as flat as possible. And then.. Kukai.

"Hi Kukai-kun." she says quietly. She's still a little awkward about last night. She shifts. "Out running?" she asks to him.

Then Jiaying. Uh. Jiaying are you still following her?

"I'm fine." she says, even if Jiaying didn't SAY anything to her.
Dragon Lamya 2017-10-24 04:33:53 85378
"I am well," admits Lamya. "I like it out here." It looks as if she's about to say more but then Kukai and Jiaying shows up. "Hallo!" she says cheerfully to them.
Kukai Souma 2017-10-24 04:39:16 85379
Kukai nods at the two of them. "Yeah, jogging and patrolling. It's King Penguin Park, the best place in Tokyo pretty much." He grins. "It's all good. I... figure you're in a good place too, I hope?"
% He eyes Lacrima for a moment, before leaning over to Lamya and giving her a bow of his head and a smile. "Hello! How're you today, .... uh." He stares at her for a moment, trying to remember her name. "Oh no. I. Uh. Who're you again?"

Lacrima is waving to someone behind him. Kukai risks a glance and - good grief, there's Jiaying. He gives her a little wave as well.
Jiaying Maki 2017-10-24 04:44:14 85380
Jiaying Maki grins to Kukai, leaning from one side, to the other to wave to Lamya as well. "Tha-" she starts, then pauses. Does Lamya have another name like Norie? She stops, trying to run it around in her head. Maybe? She should have asked.

"I thought you normally went for your patrol later? Or is that just over in other parts of the city?"

Finally Norie's given a flat stare for a moment. Then she lifts her sketchbook and opens it to the page she had been working on. "I've been coming to the park for a few weeks now."
Lacrima 2017-10-24 04:57:39 85381
Lacrima gives Jiaying a slight eye roll. "Of course." she says. Like she doesn't really believe that. She eyes Kukai and then Lamya. She clears her throat. "Kukai. This is Lamya-chan. She's staying at my manor for the current time being." she says softly.

She doesn't go into more detail. Lamya can offer that if she so desires.

She sighs at Kukai. "I am doing acceptble." she says flatly as she stares back at the ground.

Maybe she isn't.
Makio Ryu 2017-10-24 05:02:57 85382
Another shift finished at the Cafe Mew Mew, Makio wanders across the street to relax a little before actually heading home. Due to this, he's surprized to find a whole group of people he's met at least once before. Lacrima, 'Jack', Jiaying, and...um...that one person that made that really impressively spooky carving... Lamya is, of course, the person here he's met least, and that seems like a running trend!

In any case, he's carrying a box of something with him as he waves at the others with his free hand. "Hi dudes, I hope I'm not interupting anything," he greets as he takes a seat on a nearby bench.
Dragon Lamya 2017-10-24 05:03:41 85383
Lamya's red eyes consider Kukai carefully. "I am Laymia, Great Wyrm of Lake Selene," the young girl explains. "We've met. Several times, actually. With your little imp, too." Obviously she's talking about Daichi.

"I'm doing well." she says, answering the boy's question. "I enjoy being out in the park,"
Kukai Souma 2017-10-24 05:14:10 85384
Kukai nods to Jiaying and makes a mental note to go give her a hug in a bit, but then looks back to Lacrima as she begins to talk. "Lamya! Yes, I remember now, Lamya. Ah... she is? That's.. I mean, I guess that's ok." He eyes Lamya, lots of questions about dating and vampire energy draining and paying the rent coming to mind, but he puts them away and goes back to focusing on Lamya. "Great Wyrm of where?" He rubs his head. "Oh, right, you're the dragon girl! I remember better now." At least, the girl that believes she's a dragon. "I remember us meeting but I'm really bad with names. I'm sorry. It's nice to see you again, though!"

Kukai looks back at Makio when he hears his voice. "Oh, hey. No, we just sort of found one another here. How're you?"
Jiaying Maki 2017-10-24 05:23:09 85385
Jiaying Maki turns to look to Makio, offering something of a wave and a curious look at the box. "Only a fit." She replies to his question. "Dudes?" she asks, not knowing the word at all.

"Are you still lounging over at the lake Lamya?" She gestures towards the pond, then takes a moment to skim through her sketchbook. "Need to finish that. Got distracted last time didn't I."

"She's the western kind I think." Noting the dragon comment. "Though she is all about water." She turns her head to ask Lamya, "You're not a river or lake drago-... I mean not of the lake, but-" she stops, trying to think of how to describe it. Usually she's the one confused by other myths or ideas. There's a shrug. "Nevermind."
Lacrima 2017-10-24 05:31:56 85386
Lacrima eyes Kukai and purses her lips. "Rashmi-chan referred her to me because she knows I have a few empty guest rooms." she says. She looks away from Kukai and then to Jiaying. Then to.

"Ah. Ryu-san." she says softly with a soft nod. "I was here contemplating alone when suddenly there is a crowd around me." she says. Plip.

What was that? Oh it's rain. It's starting to drizzle a little now like it's been threatening to for the past few hours, but it seems to be just keeping to a light misting drizzle with a few occasional actual drops. Nothing to hurry and get out of too fast.

She gives Jiaying a slight flat face when she becomes confused and looks back at the ground. She's mostly VERY interested in the ground. OH so intrested.
Makio Ryu 2017-10-24 05:40:06 85387
"Eh, something I have a bad habbit of saying Jiaying," Makio replies, "I am surprized I haven't already had to explain to you in texts...it's like another casual way of saying guys or people." "I'm doing fine, just finished work for the night," is said toward Kukai before he notes the curious look from Jiaying. "I was taking some cream puffs home for my grandparents. If you guys want, it should be fine if you just take one each."

Lacrima's greeting worries him a little. "Oh, sorry," he replies, "I guess the park kinda sucks for that right now..." He's not sure if he should be offering to leave or what, given the place and situation.
Dragon Lamya 2017-10-24 05:43:06 85388
"Dudes?" Lamya echoes Jiaying's question, the vernacular being unfamilliar with her as well. She nods to the fox-girl. "Yes. I'm most comfortable there." Pause. She turns to Lacrima, "I-I mean, your house is very comfortable too," she stammers apologetically, "But this is the environment that I grew up in."

Her attention goes back to Jiaying, as the rain starts to fall. "Yes. My kind like to make their lairs in lakes and such." She shrugs, "Some like mountain caves and earth, and some like volcanoes and fire. It's a thing."
Kukai Souma 2017-10-24 06:04:33 85389
Kukai hmms and looks at Lacrima for a moment, then nods. "Well... long as the two of you are getting along, that's good." He lets anything else go as she turns to look at Makio, then winces as a few drops splat on top of his forehead. Daichi pops up from the bushes where he was exploring, also starting to get rained on, and lands on Kukai's shoulder.

Kukai eyes the cream puffs, and decides against it. Weight and all. "Thanks Makio, it's good. Um. Should we find a place to get outta the rain? I didn't bring an umbrella." He makes his way over towards Jiaying, giving her a pat on the shoulder as he moves closer under the trees for the moment.
Jiaying Maki 2017-10-24 06:09:29 85391
Jiaying Maki shakes her head and says, "I haven't thought to ask about it before." she then shrugs while giving Lamya the kind of look one gives when you don't get it either. "I meant more like Chinese dragons, which are tied to specific places."

Holding her hands up at the snack offer she says, "No thank you." before looking up as it starts to rain. There's a hint of mist swirling around her briefly, then the rain seems to avoid her entirely. She did something with her hands in her pockets.

She doesn't say anything to Norie at the moment.
Lacrima 2017-10-24 06:20:33 85392
"She isn't a Chinese dragon." she says softly. She sighs a bit and fidgets. She sighs and just frowns to herself. "If I wanted to be alone, I'd had left by now." she says flatly to Makio as she gently closes her eyes.

Yeah she's a mess right now. She's at least managing a flat level of voice rather than active annoyance at every little thing like yesterday.
Makio Ryu 2017-10-24 06:26:33 85393
Makio Ryu rubs at the back of his neck before nodding toward Lacrima's statement. "Alright..." he replies, "Well, good to see all of you again." That said, he does not open the box, as no one is interested. With Kukai's question of getting out of the rain he follow's the other boy's lead, pulling his hood up over his head as he does. While he's not sure what to say of it, he IS listening with interest to the talk about different dragons.
Dragon Lamya 2017-10-24 06:33:04 85394
The rain doesn't seem to be bothering Lamya any. Red eyes watch her roommate carefully, before flicking to the other three. She stands, brushing her skirt. "I will go back to the mansion," she announces, "and I will acquire donuts." Of course, the dragon doesn't have a job, much less any money so heaven only knows how she'll get them. She smiles to Makio and Kukai, "It was a pleasure meeting you two again." She curtsies and turns to walk along the path leading out of the park, looking about as bothered by the rain as an alligator would.
Jiaying Maki 2017-10-24 06:51:17 85395
Jiaying Maki waves to Makio and says, "I need to go and get my books inside." Waving to everyone and shooting Norie a glance. They'll probably have a talk later. Or Jia will do something dumb. Maybe both.
