Minako Aino 2017-11-02 00:17:59 85873
    Minako Aino is here. Minako Aino knows Easter is secretly evil. Minako Aino also knows it's the best place to get factory outlet prices on expensive looking clothes because her allowance a month only covers so much funner things!
    Minako Aino has a disgustingly overloaded shopping basket she's going to probably only buy one percent of then dump the rest of the unbought items on some poor retail worker in justice fueled indigination for evil acts.
    Hey gotta make evil pay someway!
    She eyes a blouse carefully. It's plain white. Would Kazuo like it she thinks. She bets he would! It's his favorite color! Boring white!
    She shoves it into the basket she's carrying along with the others. She's not watching where she's going. She could bump into anyone in the clearance racks.
Naru Osaka 2017-11-02 00:24:15 85874
One might try and argue that shopping is evil simply for its fast fashion, non-eco ways and capitalistic tendancies.

And then there's super cute dresses. Summer dresses, cause clearance, but over leggings and with a cute cardi? Totally doable.

Naru has a basket of boring things waiting by her feet as she stands in front of a three way mirror, holding up a sleeveless dress with a flouncy skirt to herself to consider how it might look without actually trying it on.

Its in the mirror that she spots a familiar shopper behind her, and doesn't even turn around to call. "Hey Mina! What do you think?"
Makio Ryu 2017-11-02 00:29:33 85875
In a rather unexpected vevent, Makio happens to be here too! What's the bluenette, male, sorta/kinda half seal person doing looking in women's clothing? Is he being a pervert? Is he some kind of crossdresser? Did seeing Kukaima awaken some SLEEPING PASSION inside his heart?!

...nah....the truth is much more boring and normal than that.

On hearing Naru ask something he peers up from looking at one of the more....punk chic kind of clothing pieces. "Huh? Oh hey, that's a coincidence, nice to see ya Naru!"
Minako Aino 2017-11-02 00:34:06 85876
    Also the clearance racks are a mess and all over the place! You gotta dig, boy or girl! Naru probably knows how mess clearance areas can get. She bets OSA-P is a mess every clearance sale. Oh there's Naru! "Hi Naru!" she says. She tip toes over and then there's some blue haired guy over there.
    "Did you like my costume last night?" she asks. "Apparently chicken isn't a good replacement for steaking vampires." she mentions.
    She looks to Makio again then back to Naru.
    "I dunno about the no sleeves. I like a little sleeve myself."
Naru Osaka 2017-11-02 00:39:30 85877
Naru turns at the second familiar voice, giving the skirt on the hanger a little floof as she does and she waves at Makio. "Hey Makio.. Do you know Minako?" She gestures with the dress between the pair of them. "Makio, Mina.. Mina, Makio. Full weird disclosure all around." She adds as casually as one might please and then turns back to the mirror.

"Your costume was great." Naru flickers a little smile. "Chicken is less mess, but more.. salmonella potential. I don't think vampires are suseptible to biological warfare." She mmms at the dress. "After getting over wearing a lot of spandex in public, I'm pretty much alright with sleeveless.. but that's what sweaters are for, right?"

"How are you Makio?" Naru turns again and moves to put the dress back on a rack. Any rack really, the chaos cant' get much worse for random deposits. She pauses, not quite having hung it up yet and holds it up to Makio in consideration. "A little short on you, I think."
Makio Ryu 2017-11-02 00:44:04 85878
Makio Ryu frowns a little. "Yeah, sorry I didn't make the party last night. You guys got the candy alright though, right? I had to leave it a bit late cause I got caugt up in something a bit late and then walked Kukai home." He shakes his head though. "Nope, never met Minako! Nice to meet you Mina'!" He gives his usual grin and waves.

"Ah I'm fine," he replies to Naru's other question, "I was just looking for something for mom." At Naru's comment about the dress he mock pouts a little. "What, you don't think I have good enough leg to be showy?"
Minako Aino 2017-11-02 00:49:16 85879
    Minako Aino gives a little wave. "Heya!" she says. She looks back to Naru. "Hey! Spandex can be hot to people! But you already have a girlfriend and I dunno what Kyouko-kun likes." she says.
    She shoves a pretty grey vest from the rack directly into her basket without seeing if it'd fit.
    "Oh, you got the pleasure of taking the fake vampiress home!" she says. "I bet that was awkward." she says with a wide grin. "Tell me about it!" she says.
    "I had to leave because things got a little weird with the possession thing and by the time I thought to act everything was done!" she says.
    "I wanted to Vee it up!" says says. "But I got chicken instead." she offers.
Naru Osaka 2017-11-02 00:55:10 85880
"Got the candy, thank you. Hid some of the candy so that Kyouko didn't finish it all in one fell swoop." Naru grins brightly as she replies to Makio and then ahhhs softly. "Kukai didn't mention that you'd walked him home, that's cool. He looked good, I thought."

The grin that comes at the mock pout is impish and Naru comes up on tip toes to get the dress anywhere near Makio's shoulder.. which makes what would have been a shortish dress on Naru into a tunic on Makio. "I /know/ you've got great legs, but ..." She grins and winks.

"I feel bad for her brother." Naru nods to Minako about the possession thing. "Getting possessed, or mind controlled.. the worst. Getting drained was WAY easier." She tucks the dress back on the rack and then picks up a sweater and offers it towards Makio. "What sort of thing are you looking to get your Mom?"
Makio Ryu 2017-11-02 01:00:54 85881
Makio Ryu chuckles a little at Minako's statement about taking the fake vampire home. "Not as awkward at all when you're also a fake vampire. ...po-ssess-ion thing?" That last bit causes a tilt of the head and the raise of a brow. "I don't /think/ I heard that one... but yeah I was dressed as a vampire too...I tried to offer Not-Lacrima my arm, but he was having no such gentlemanly tomfoolery. Seriously though, it was actually really nice, wierd as that might sound. We talked about stuff...besides Nadeshiko would probably sink a blade into me if he actually took my arm anyway!"

He then chuckles more as Naru follows up on his kidding around and holds the dress up to him. "Yeaaah I'd have to have a lot more than nice legs for that." Though as Naru asks him what he's looking for, the differently colored bit in his hair kind of curls upward like it's trying to make bottomless question marks. "I'm not really sure, but she's...really different than what you'd expect of a lawyer when she's not having to dress for work... I'd guess something kind of /rebelious/ looking?"
Minako Aino 2017-11-02 01:10:42 85882
    Minako Aino huffs! Huffs she does! "I went as Vampire Hunter V. The best vampire." she says. Then nods. "Some jerk came in and tried to hassle the host and was apparently some vampire ghost possessing her brother and it was odd. Vampires can also be ghosts apparently! I needed to add that to the files."
    She eyes Naru and then just slightly frowns. She has bad memories tied to brainwashing and possession. They all involve Kunzite of course. She looks back to Makio. She forces a smile.
    Minako is good at the acting like things don't bother her too much thing. "Parents are weird." she finally adds.
Naru Osaka 2017-11-02 01:16:34 85884
There are a lot of people who have less than ideal experiences with brain washing and possession. In fact, there are shockingly few people with good experiences having their autonomy stripped from them. Odd that.

fNaru doesn't even pause at that but nods as Minako explains in short the goings on with Lacrima's brother and vampire ghosts. "Parents /are/ odd. I dont think I knew that your mother was a lawyer though, Makio. That's cool."

Naru moves a little further into the stacks and pulls out a brightly coloured shirt with a wrap front that on some figures would probably be quite the dipped neckline. "That looks distinctly not-lawyer."
Makio Ryu 2017-11-02 01:22:19 85885
Makio Ryu nods in reply. "Possession totally doesn't sound fun for anyone..." he states as he crosses his arms. "I totally have no experiance with that though. At most, I just helped out with Cure Spark, but I'm sure it's really horrible." He peers over the shirt and nods. "Yeah, that just might work, thanks," he replies as he takes the shirt from her for further consideration.
Minako Aino 2017-11-02 01:28:53 85887
    "Oh, Gully's thing. Yeah that was a mess I heard." she admits. "I heard her family is still being held by those jerks so it isn't over yet!" she says. She's been staying out of it. Those jerks are not her priority at the moment.
    "Mom is always telling me not to end up a lazy bum like dad." she asides as she shoves a skirt that is way too small in many ways for her into her shopping basket. Then something falls out of it and she oops and picks it up and shoves it back in.
Naru Osaka 2017-11-02 01:33:21 85888
"I.. didn't hear about any of that." Naru pauses and then frowns a little, thoughtful before she takes a slow breath and nods. "But I've been sort of out of the loop for the last while. Not surprising, all in all." She frowns a little at the mention of family still being held. "Wow, that does suck."

Naru watches Minako's basket fail to cope for a moment. "Are you on a scavenger hunt, or are you actually going to try those on?" She asks, curiously.

The shirt, she passes over to Makio and then goes back to looking for either stuff for his Mom, or for herself. "Are we swimming tomorrow, Makio?"
Makio Ryu 2017-11-02 01:37:51 85890
Makio Ryu nods toward Naru. "'course," he replies, "Swiming's def' still on!" "And yeah, Naomi's still worried about her family and doesn't know how to get them back yet...hopefully we can figure out some way..." He looks over at Minako's cart too. "At this rate I think you /miiiight/ be in trouble long before becoming a bum.," he murmurs as he rubs at the back of his neck.
Minako Aino 2017-11-02 01:40:50 85891
    Minako Aino eyes Naru. "Maybe I am trying to see how far I need to go until I get Kazuo to sputter into unintelligble blushing." she slyly says with raised and playful eyebrows. "I will probably need to take drastic measures to accomplish this." she says.
    She looks between Makio and Naru and raises her eyebrows inquisitivly.
    "Swimming. Eh?" she asks.
    She eyes Makio and says. "Well I'm not buying everything in here probably. Just stuff I find intrest in so I can go all try it on." she says.
Naru Osaka 2017-11-02 01:44:47 85892
"If you're trying to get Kazuo to sputter and blush, I can probably make some suggestions." Naru comments with a grin. "But I expect you have it well in hand." She glances to the basket and then adds. "Literally in this case."

"As I've missed a few of late, I figured I'd confirm that tomorrow was still good." Naru notes to Makio and then looks over to Mina and explains. "Makio is on the swim team at Infinity, and I've roped him into helping me with my training."
Makio Ryu 2017-11-02 01:48:02 85894
"That's at least SLIGHTLY better," Makio decideds when Minako says she's PROBABLY not buying all of it. "Yeah, I'm helping Naru with her swiming stanima for long distance marathon type stuff." He goes back to looking around as well.

" to put it...," he wonders, "Let's just say I've barely been around the gang yet and already come to understand how much of a...'crowd' Strong and Mostly Silent can draw..."
Minako Aino 2017-11-02 02:00:47 85896
    Minako eyes Makio. "Lotsa people have crushes for Kazuo." she says. "But I had a crush before we even existed! It's really weird. I don't wanna get to into it deeply." she says. "Cuz I dunno what you know but we've had a date or two. Low key things."
    She leans conspiratorily. "I'm not sure if the vampire has a crush on him. It's strange because I can't gauge her reactions aswell." she says sneakily.
    She eyes Naru. "Advice is always appreciated and I pay in ice cream milkshakes at the crown." she says with wide eyes. "I mean I have a good eye. But want to make sure I'm on target." she winks.
Naru Osaka 2017-11-02 02:06:38 85899
"I don't have a crush on Kazuo." Naru feels obliged to add into that mix. "Nor have I ever." She grins. "No matter /what/ rumours have tried to claim otherwise."

"Hard to say with Lacrima." Naru muses as she pulls a skirt out from the rack to show Makio. Longer than strictly a business suit skirt, but more elegant than casual. "Her emotional state is super hard to read."

Naru grins over to Minako and winks right back. "Well of /course/. Two sets of eyes, better than one, after all."
Makio Ryu 2017-11-02 02:13:25 85900
Makio Ryu ahhs. "Yeah that's what I was getting at, not just some crush in your case, it sounds like," Makio states before peering at the skirt Naru's showing him. "That one looks a bit too fancy to suit her style..." "I'm afriad I can't be much help aside from the fact I am a guy's not exactly my thing."
Minako Aino 2017-11-02 02:16:58 85901
    Minako smiles at Naru. "Yup. Also I heard that rumor? That like it was an arranged marriage or something because you were just going to him for some sort of lesson I think? I dunno my details are fuzzy." she says.
    She looks to Makio. "Maybe a little." she blushes. Huff! New subject. "Of course guys opinions matter. Like we girls can try to guess what a guy like but a guy only knows what a guy likes." she insists.
    "Which I am certain is a scandously short skirt." she says tapping the bottom of her lip.
Naru Osaka 2017-11-02 02:20:15 85902
"We took dance classes together." Naru fills in some details. "So /clearly/ we were in some sort of arranged marriage." She laughs and shakes her head. "The classes were a lot of fun though. I really enjoyed them, and Kazuo's a good dancer."

Naru looks at Makio with a quirk of her brow and then gestures towards Mina at the mention of 'guys know what they like'. "No one actually WEARS high fashion, it's ridiculous. But you know what you like on yourself and on someone else, and I know what I like to wear, and hopefully what my girlfriend likes to see me in.. which may or may not include short skirts." She smirks a touch at Mina.
Makio Ryu 2017-11-02 02:24:06 85904
Makio Ryu says, "Well...on some girls, yes. The body type and personality matter a scandelous skirt usually isn't going to work if a girl is better for a cute and innocent style, for just looks out of place and wierd then...unless the guy in question is some kind of lolicon, and I really don't get that vibe from Strong and Mostly Silent.""
Minako Aino 2017-11-02 02:29:26 85906
    Minako grins at Naru. "Aha! I knew it. Kyou-kun likes short skirts." she insists. She doesn't know if that's true. Besides. She isn't dressing for Kyouko, Naru is. That would just be weird. She eyes Makio. "Nah." she says. "I don't think that's a primary thing on Kazuo-kun's mind." she says.
    "I mean girls and boys and romance in general. I'm sure it's there somewhere." she smirks.
    She eyes Makio again. "True on that part." she says. "But I think I'll look good in something scandlously small. I mean. I wouldn't dress like that normally. I mean no guys would talk to me then they'd all be making mouth sounds about how hot I am!" she says with wide worried eyes.
Naru Osaka 2017-11-02 02:33:58 85907
"Sometimes the dichotomy of dressing utterly out of character is totally worth it." Naru notes as she tucks the elegant skirt back and pulls out something a bit more bohemian.. all tiers and hippie layers. "Better for your Mom, you think?" She asks, offering it to Makio and then digging out her phone as it goes bing.

"Dressing to render people speechless has a time and a place, but it's not an every day thing." Naru agrees as she types a quick message back. "I should get going.. good to bump into you both."
Makio Ryu 2017-11-02 02:38:06 85909
Makio Ryu can't help chuckling again at what Minako's saying. "Well uhh...yeah, I'd say you are one of those types that could go to either extreme if you wanted," he murmurs as he averts his eyes a little. He then peers back toward Naru. " that you mentione dressing against character...yeah, maybe this one or the last one would be good for her."
Minako Aino 2017-11-02 02:44:51 85910
    Minako Aino grins. Girls like compliments. Well she does! Not all girls. Maybe some other girl would had slapped Makio. Who knows! She then looks down at her basket. "Okay I need to go try things on! If you know Naru and Kazuo and all them I'll probably see you again eventually." she smiles.
    "For now I become an awful dressing room gremlin." she says as she escapes towards the fitting rooms.
Makio Ryu 2017-11-02 02:46:51 85911
Makio Ryu chuckles a little as he continues looking through clothing, taking up both the last two skirts Naru suggested. "See ya later then Minalin, Naru!"
