What's the Buzz?

A Japanese hornet gets ahold of a Jewel Seed and goes full kaiju. Its hate, rage, indignation, and fury are increased exponentially with its size.

    The botanical gardens are still a lovely spot to visit even during the chill winter months. A fact made all the mor possible by a new batch of greenhouse exhibits to keep plants thriving in their optimal environments. Topped off with another new exhibit dedicated to the bees of Japan! Though for safety purposes, as people can be allergic, the varied hives set up are viewed from the other side of glass enclosures. But there are bees of all types today, bumblebees, honey bees, there's even an enclosure for the dreaded Japanese hornet.
    Everything was all well and good, bees are buzzing, birds are chirping... On days like these...
    Jewel Seeds run amock.
    Whatever the scouting hornet had been doing before, all came to an end when it saw the blue gleam and vibrant glowing light that beckoned it over almost hypnotically. Buzzing as it touched down on top of the shining gem, it proved that hornets are nature's jerks when it tried to sting the glittering warm gem, to no avail. Before that glow began to grow.
    It's not hard for the magically inclined to sense. Somewhere a Jewel Seed is going off.
Rashmi Terios 2017-12-10 01:25:56 87463
Extra credit is the perfect cure for the remaining heebie-jeebies that come with having clapped eyes upon the Dusk Zone.

No, really, some people like doing homework, and Rashmi is among them. Weirdo.

Though not here for the bees, Rashmi has been enjoying herself finding interesting flora to research and write about, and her notebook is close to being full when Nicomachea chimes sharply into her brain. *BING!* << MASTER. ALERT. JEWEL SEED ENERGY DETECTED. >>

Which is enough to have the redhead make as discreet a dash as she can for the bathrooms, transform, then emerge at a hurried trot, hunting down the source of the alarm.

And when she finds it, she can claim a whole new set of screaming heebie-jeebies.
Nanoha Takamachi 2017-12-10 01:30:23 87465
"Nanoha!" says Yuuno! "I'm on it!" says Nanoha! < Barrier Jacket, Set Up > goes Raising Heart.

It doesn't take long for them to find the botanical gardens overhead. Yuuno is on her shoulder and is pretty sure that the Jewel Seed is down there below. She isn't here on school work. She wanted to just rest at home. And absorb the... everything the past few months.

She lands nearby somewhere. And sneaks out toward's the greenhouses. Sneak sneak sneak sneak.

Hopefully there's not a lot of people in there. Hey. Is that Rashmi-chan she sees through the glass? Oh good. She's here already. She's looking for the telltale signs of blonde and black but isn't seeing any. Maybe this one is out of Fate's current scanning range. Maybe that's a good thing.

Mikoto Nakajima 2017-12-10 01:32:44 87467
    Cabin Fever is a Thing that Happens. These days they call it "Seasonal Affective Disorder" and other fancy names, but Mikoto knows what they mean. So she tries to spend some time on things other than school and work.

    There's one problem with being out and about town, however: It's cold out there. She could cheat with her Barrier Jacket, but... it's simpler to just go somewhere warm. And the gardens have trees, and flowers, and animals...

    <<~ Meister. Geller waveform detected. Positive Match: Jewel Seed. ~>>

    ... and Jewel Seeds, apparently. Welp. Looks like it's back to work time. She ducks over to the bathroom - pausing to blink and wave as she sees Rashmi coming out in her own costume - "Hey, be right back." she says, then slips out of sight. A few moments later she emerges, dressed in blue, rapier in hand, casting a quick glance around to see if Rashmi is still there.
Kokoro Akakuma 2017-12-10 01:35:46 87468
    Kokoro is here... mostly because Rashmi is.

    Unlike the shorter girl, Kokoro doesn't have homework that can be completed by coming here. If she did, it might have been more difficult to get here to show up, in a sheer twist of irony. But no, she's here, having been given a rendezvous point that she is only just reaching. When she does, she finds... nothing. That's odd.

    Shortly thereafter, Rashmi receives a text. 'hey where are you'
Rashmi Terios 2017-12-10 01:43:00 87469
<< DENGEKI I'M AT THE BEE DISPLAY, >> comes a startlingly unnerved answer directly in Kokoro's brain. << A JEWEL SEED FOUND A JAPANESE HORNET OH GOD >>
Kokoro Akakuma 2017-12-10 01:49:00 87470

    "Oh sh-" Kokoro begins running, full steam ahead. She never hears Rashmi sound like that. It's enough to spur her into action without a second thought - without even a first, really.

    By the time she gets there, she'll be transformed.
Fate T. Waldia 2017-12-10 01:52:26 87471
    Wherever Fate Testarossa is... It is, thankfully not here. It's less of a hassle to not have to deal with rivals for magical artifacts, and the twintailed blonde doesn't see to have caught onto this Jewel Seed activating as it comes to life and goes wild... With the hornet right on top of it.
    Now that the Jewel Seed is almost fully active there's no difficulty finding it, either. Or the hornet it has attached to.
    The hornet that is rapidly growing in size. The hornet that is QUICKLY outgrowing the housing as it expands and stretches, and grows.
    There is good reason for alarm, when it goes from size of a hornet to size of a car in the blink of an eye and doesn't look like it's done. There's a brief window to get a barrier up before it breaks out and releases the entire swarm of hornets as it breaks out of the greenhouse, but then it goes from the size of a car to the size of a bus in the next instant, shattering glass and sending shards and debris everywhere as it lifts off with a loud BZZZZZZZZZ.
    Someone might want to handle that.
Rashmi Terios 2017-12-10 02:06:00 87472
Aaaaand a Japanese hornet the size of a bus. That'll do wonders to edge out swaying black crab-leg grass from her nightmares!

Thankfully, they've been at this long enough that Nicomachea knows what to do.

*bong!* << SPACE-TIME BARRIER >> A moment's calculation, a proper magical circle under Rashmi's feet, and soon enough the spreading green-black light covering the Gardens, and a good ways around it, says that the battle has safely been punted over into another dimension.

Which still leaves the problem of Rashmi wanting to hide under her bed. << MASTER, >> the book says. << MOVEMENT IS SAFETY. STILLNESS IS NOT. MOVE, MASTER. >>
Kokoro Akakuma 2017-12-10 02:12:09 87473
    Crisis. Crisis. Crisis crisis crisis.

    Kokoro comes skidding around a corner just as the barrier ripples outward. It's thankful timing, because she uses her hammer to arrest and redirect her momentum, slamming its head to the ground as an axle and pretty much swinging herself into the turn. As much as she'd like to stop and gape at the big ugly thing, there are more pressing concerns... like Rashmi potentially freezing up.

    So Dengeki Shoujo turns up the speed, starting to crackle with lightning, and hurls herself into the giant hornet with every ounce of her strength. She doesn't even bother swinging her hammer, just slams herself into it.
Mikoto Nakajima 2017-12-10 02:14:37 87474
"Good thinking," Hagane says as Rashmi calls up the barrier. "I don't want to see these things getting loose in the city, especially with the Seed doing kami-know-what to them."

    <<~It is ill advised.~>> agrees Carnwennan.

    "So, someone's going to have to do a lot of really precise shooting to get them all back in the cage..." She pauses and hmms, a clearly-visible (this time) ring of flechettes forming in orbit around her head as she calls on her favorite Flicker shooter. It's clear things are going to get messy. "Anyone without a barrier jacket probably shouldn't try to engage them," she adds as she readies her blade, several of the flickers zipping into it to add a sheen to its length.

    Then she blurs forward, launching herself at the hornet, rapier flicking out to parry a thrust of the stinger -- keeping it off of the charging Dengeki. "Hit it!" she calls to the girl with the hammer. "I'll keep the stinger busy!"
Nanoha Takamachi 2017-12-10 02:20:39 87475
Nanoha Takamachi's jubelance of seeing Rashmi! Then Kokoro, who runs in and HEY look! Mikoto too! Is overshadowed by the fact a big giant huge wasp just bust out of the greenhouse. Normal wasps are now out. Luckily they are... normal wasps and probably ejected with the space time barrier, right? Oh god, MORE than one magical wasp would be a nightmare.

She leans down and off back into the air she goes, faster--- Flier Fin on an auto cast for her. She uses it enough to have it on a gesture rather than a spell callout.

Off she goes chasing a giant hornet.

"Be careful, Nanoha!" calls Yuuno.

"...I'm pretty sure it's a wasp, Yuuno."

"NOW'S NOT THE TIME!" calls out Yuuno!

She sighs and then she looks up with determination and begins to fire off a barrage of quick magenta orb bursts. Simple Shot Bullets for now.
Fate T. Waldia 2017-12-10 02:28:41 87476
    It's a good thing that barrier went up. Now all the group has to deal with is one giant wasp. Imagine how bad the situation would have been if it was one giant wasp and HUNDREDS of smaller ones, that were just as angry. Still, the wasp grows, shattering the confines of the greenhouse after the barrier goes up- leaving the rest of its hive behind in the chaos.
    Just as it lifts off, the big buzzer has to instantly contend with Dengeki Shoujo and Hagane, the sheer impact of the hammer wielding girl hitting with enough force to off-balance the massive wasp, which now buzzes with renewed indignation, stinger lashing out-- only to be halted by Hagane's rapier- which immediately is thrust into a vicious and angry fencing match with a stinger nearly as big as Hagane is herself, as Nanoha peppers the wasp. It's too big to miss, though its carapice holds up for now, repeated fire will undoubtedly eventually wear it down.
    ... Which might be why the bee buzzes angrily, blue beams of heated laser light lancing from its eyes as it sweeps its gaze across the gather magical heroines.
Kokoro Akakuma 2017-12-10 02:33:57 87477
    As she hits, Dengeki Shoujo manages a side glance, catching Hagane doing the work of keeping her from getting stung. Her response is a nod, and a simple, "Yeah," which coming from her is both agreement and praise besides. She clings only briefly, though, instead hopping back and away... right into the line of fire of LASER EYES. "Whoa-!"

    A hasty dodge-roll later, Kokoro comes up with her violet eyes crackling and a scorchmark along her left side, but aside from her teeth slightly gritting, she doesn't seem shaken by it. She opts instead to take Hagane's suggestion, and throws herself at the Jewel Hornet again; only this time, she DOES swing the hammer, with a fierce roar and a crackle of thunder. "HAAAA!"
Rashmi Terios 2017-12-10 02:37:54 87478
"R-right!" Rashmi manages, the twin comforts of Kokoro on the attack and a wider array of veteran Device Users allowing her to shake off her freezes. Her own Flier Fin spreads, and she darts away from the immediate vicinity to get a better read of the battlefield.

Laser beam eyes, though... that's a new wrinkle. "Oh come on, seriously?" she shouts, darting to one side to avoid its coherent hatred. First order of business...

*bing!* << BULLET -- BOOST UP >>

A ribbon of sun-colored light wraps around Nanoha's wrist. Because when fighting a kaiju-sized hornet, you absolutely want the dogfighter to be better at dogfighting.
Mikoto Nakajima 2017-12-10 02:43:58 87479
    Hagane starts on a quick thrust, trying to get at one of the soft points on the big bug's endoskeleton... <<~ALERT!~>> Carnwennan's warning is just in time for her to duck aside from the eye-laser blast. She rolls to her feet, a little bit away. "Frickin' laser beams? That's just so unfair." She's smiling. Really.

    "Keep hitting it!" she calls out, to - well, pretty much everyone. It's not exactly necessary advice, but it makes her feel better. Especially since she's going to charge right back in to re-engage that stinger.

    Which is a good thing, because this is when The Cavalry comes charging in! ... well, okay, it's just Hikari, in the form of a cute little grey leopard kitten, but she leaps up to try to get onto the hornet's back and claw at its wings! Mighty Hunter to the Rescue! <(Don't worry, Mikoto-neechan! I'll save you!)>

    Mikoto is far too busy to facepalm, right now, but an eyeroll is certainly on the agenda.
Nanoha Takamachi 2017-12-10 02:49:48 87480
Nanoha Takamachi eyes go wide when the bee explodes in /eye lasers/!? Woah! Jewel Seeds are of course, no joke, and sometimes the rules of nature don't apply. She frowns. "Yuuno, what's a wasp's weak point. Isn't it bad if the stinger comes off?" she asks. Yuuno shakes his head. "I'm sure that's bees and not wasps." he says.

"Nrgh..." she mutters. "Right. Bees. Make honey. Like for pastries. And Wasps are like Riventon. Just jerkbutts that sting you for no good reasons sometimes.

She frowns and "Divine Shooter!" she calls out as she fires off a faster, spam array of streaks through the air as she aims to keep a good distance. Not too close. But she's having trouble keeping her distance too.
Fate T. Waldia 2017-12-10 03:10:51 87481
    Jewel Seeds are no joke. The bee probably has more than just eye lasers as the hornet twitches its mandibles and buzzes. It barely even seems to notice the kitten leaping on its back, and in another beat Hikari had better hang on, because its wings begin to flap maddeningly fast. It's getting higher- or it was before Kokoro comes in swinging, hammer first. The blow is hard enough to make its head jerk from the blow, electrical energy making legs twitch as the hornet is seared by voltaic energy.
    Energy that it re-routes right back with its antennae, wiggling them together and re-directing the charge in a sudden lancing bolt of lightning fired for Rashmi and Hagane, before it tries to smash Dengeki Shoujo with a massive leg. Nanoha's machinegun hail of pink energy does not go forgotten though, as a section of carapice cracks under the stress, it turns around. And with an angry "BZZZZZ!" launches itself for the tiny mage, intending to impale her on its massive stinger.
Nanoha Takamachi 2017-12-10 03:25:20 87483
Nanoha Takamachi watches as the bee just redirects fire! It can reflect attacks!? Oh no! But maybe it's just lightning? It hasn't tried to shoot back her shots yet, right? Speaking off...

Ha! Direct hit! If there is no weakspot, she made one! "Watch out, Nanoha..." calls Yuuno.

"I'm being careful..." she says as she aims to get closer and closer.

"Come on..."

Then the wasp lances out toward's her and her eyes go wide. She turns on full reverse but that wasp is uncanilly fast for it's size suddenly and she's just backing up and-----

She can feel it. That stinger only touches a moment into her skin but it's size and weight and power behind it is enough to leave a deep gash as she makes a one second split sideways turn to get away. This leaves flecks of red. If it was just a cut. She'd be fine.

But wasps mean venom. And poison and... she begins to falter badly because well. Big wasp. Big poison. She doesn't even get to say anything as she 'uhs' lightly and begins to fall from the sky. "NANOHA!" calls out Yuuno.

Nrg. Everyone is busy with the wasp... and now Nanoha is poisoned. And..

"Dammit." he mutters.

He jumps off Nanoha and there's a momentary flash as a blonde/brown haired young boy, maybe about Nanoha's age appears in Yuuno's place. Maybe while Nanoha's out cold no one will tell her that he's actually a boy, he thinks.

He makes a dart forward and a glow encompases him as the free fall becomes a more controlled descent.

"H-hey." says Yuuno. "Keep that thing busy. I got her!" he says.

Totally ignore he's a boy, okay? He hopes. It's an illusion! He isn't real or something! Spooky!

...Nanoha is totally going to know by tomorrow. Sigh.
Rashmi Terios 2017-12-10 03:28:15 87484
The bolt of lightning was definitely unexpected, and Rashmi's reflexes aren't the greatest. So instead of narrowly dodging the sudden thunderbolt, she gets clipped, and her startled squeak becomes a brief, ragged-edged scream, her Barrier Jacket unable to blunt the attack entirely.

Still, it's a megawasp, and now it's in the air and it's gotten Nanoha. "NANO-CHAN!" she cries, and she makes ready to catch the falling Mage, but Yuuno has it in hand already. Summoning a few bullets of her own and taking a moment to consider options, Rashmi streaks for the ground and the frustrated melee combatants, bullets streaking toward the monster.
Kokoro Akakuma 2017-12-10 03:32:00 87485
    'Keep hitting it'.

    Hagane gets an incredulous look. "Don't know if you been watching me, but I ain't exactly got a lotta other optio- WHFF!" Kokoro, you know better than to look away from your opponent. And now you've been kicked for it.

    Kokoro goes sailing back until she hits a wall with a titanic WHUD. For a second or two after impact, she's stunned, but it quickly shakes off and pushes herself to her feet. There's no words, but the look on her face when she sees what's happened to Rashmi and Nanoha, says she's just about done with this guy. "Okay, you wanna sling around my lightning? Lemme give you more to play with. Hell, let's see if you can handle all of it."

    The head of Dengeki Shoujo's hammer whips around her once, before being held low and behind her. Arcs of plasma start to jump from the weapon to the ground, the nearby wall, from Kokoro's arms along the grip and shaft, just about anyting within reach. But most of it concentrates in the head of the weapon, lighting it up like the center of a plasma globe. It's probably a little dangerous to get too close to her, or it.

    Her fingers tense. Her jaw sets. She does what she does best. She runs at full tilt. "OryaaaaaaAAAAAAAA!"

    Rashmi can handle this. Rashmi and whoever that new kid is. Kokoro's only got one thing she can do, and that's end this fight properly. So all that charge in her hammer, that catastrophic amount of crackling, thundering energy, all of that's going into the full-strength swing she levels, and the full-power discharge when the weapon hits its mark. "TENHA JINRAI!"
Mikoto Nakajima 2017-12-10 03:40:39 87486
    Hagane is thrown aside as the wasp darts forwad, pushed out of the way with annoying ease. This is going to be one of those days, apparently. Well. "Oh crap," she mutters as she sees Nanoha in its way, and she's starting to yell "Get out of - " just as it hits "... the way."

    She mutters an old Belkan curse under her breath, starting to run towards the injured girl. ... So, little one's got a familiar? she muses to herself, and smiles a little. (Yeah. She hasn't had a chance to get to know who Yuuno really is. Yet.) This means she can concentrate on the fight.

    Which she does, taking to the air as she rushes towards the giant insect, gathering momentum -- and several more Flickers attach themselves to her blade on the way in. She times it to come in behind Dengeki, hoping that that happer will open up a hole she can stab into and unleash the explosive Flickers on the creature's delicate insides.

    <<~BLITZSCHRECKEN!~>> the Device's mechanical voice exclaims, joyfully, as she stabs it home, light blossoming from the blade's tip.
Fate T. Waldia 2017-12-10 04:02:52 87487
    Thar poison is potent. In a normal sized wasp it would just be really painful... For a wasp mutated by a Jewel Seed, poor Nanoha will not be having a good time. Almost immediately, the wasp tries to turn its attention upon Yuuno as he reveals his true form, but deterrent comes in several forms...
    Rashmi shoots, pelting its armored hide- more than an annoyance by now, every bullet of energy heats the angry buzzer's carapice red, weakening its natural armor.
    But no natural armor could really stand up to Kokoro Akakuma- Dengeki Shoujo's unstoppable physical might- and a full strength blow shatters and caves in the mega hornet's abdominal plating, presenting the perfect opportunity for Hagane to get her strike in...
    There's a flash. A brilliant blaze of bright blue-white light...
    Before a stunned and dizzy hornet the size of... Well. A hornet. Drops to the grass, beside a gleaming Jewel Seed that could really use a sealing right about now.
Kokoro Akakuma 2017-12-10 04:07:46 87488
    A few stray crackles of static dance around Kokoro as she steps back, her strongest hit delivered - and Hagane seals the deal. Well, okay, the sealing hasn't happened yet, but it's as good as done! And in the mean time, after slamming all her charge through a Jewel Seed monster at once, Dengeki Shoujo needs a chance to catch her breath - and, more importantly, hurry her way over to Nanoha as fast as she possibly can. "Oi! You, blondie! You got some way to get that stuff outta her system?" She seems to have just accepted this new boy's presence as a matter of course.
Rashmi Terios 2017-12-10 04:08:13 87489
"Good job!" Rashmi pants, muscles still jumping and twitching on the side the lightning bolt had scored her. That's gonna be tender for the next little while...

"Hagane-san, seal it away! Is Nano-chan all right?" Letting her wings keep her aloft and upright, she joins Kokoro in worrying about the fallen Mage.
Mikoto Nakajima 2017-12-10 04:10:48 87490
    "Good hit," Hagane congratulates Dengeki. "We should work together more often." She reaches up with her non-sword-holding hand to cradle Hikari as the kitten tumbles out of the air, the monster beneath her no longer present to support her weight. (Sure, she can fly, but why fly when you can cuddle?)

    "Carnwennan, sealing mode." With Nanoha temporarily incapacitated, someone's got to take care of the Seed. Her blade flares with light, enlarging into a familiar claymore-size version of itself, then splits in two as energy begins to crackle between the two halves.

    <<~Sealing Mode: Engaged~>>

    One blast of light later, there's no sign of the Jewel Seed. "Good work," she repeats, sliding the blade back into its scabbard and pausing briefly to scritch behind Hikari's ear, before turning to check on Nanoha. "How is she?"
Nanoha Takamachi 2017-12-10 04:15:11 87491
Nanoha is out cold. And probably not having a very good time because there's /spasms/. He places Nanoha down when he hits the ground, and gets to work. He can't heal the wound, but that wound itself isn't fatal. He's worried about the poison. A soft glow emanates from his hands as he seems to concentrate deeply. He doesn't use a device for this. And healing magic isn't his specialty. But when you explore ruins- you pick up a few tricks like a 'eliminate poisons' spell.

It's working. The spasms settle fast at least, but she doesn't wake up. Not yet.

"Nanoha-chan will be alright." he says softly. He makes a frown.

"I don't suppose." he says.

"You can all forget you saw me like this?" he asks.

"Nanoha always thought I was a ferret. But it's just a form I took because an animal was easier to explain than.... weird space boy and I just...."

"Never got around to telling her." he admits. "Because she seemed to excited... to know a 'Space Ferret'." he says with a sigh.

Then Nanoha stirs. And Yuuno's eyes go wide. And then Nanoha opens her eyes as her eyes focus. "Nrgggh nrrr. Yuuno-kun?" she asks.

Ugh. "Nanoha-chan. Rest. Please?" he urges.

"But... Yuuno-kun. You're... a boy...!? But...I....."

Then she drifts off. Probably better she doesn't finish that sentence anyways. Yuuno sighs. "This'll be a problem for me. But she should be okay." he offers.
Kokoro Akakuma 2017-12-10 04:19:34 87492
    "Huh?" Violet eyes blink. "Saw you like...?" Dengeki Shoujo is confused for a second or two. Then he says the word 'ferret'.

    Blink. Blink blink blink.

    "...e-eh?! You're the ferret?!" This is, plain and simply, the most utterly surprised noise Rashmi Terios has ever heard Kokoro Akakuma make. "Rashmi, did you know the ferret was-?!"
Rashmi Terios 2017-12-10 04:23:20 87493
".....No I did not," Rashmi says, eyes widening. "Um... Yeah sorry, Yuuno-san, I think this is something you're gonna have to deal with." There might be more along that vein, but instead Rashmi closes her mouth for a moment. When she speaks again, her voice is quieter. "She's gonna be okay, now?"
Mikoto Nakajima 2017-12-10 04:29:45 87494
    Hagane pauses, still skritching Hikari's ear, then nods. "Right, that doesn't sound good. I can have a ride here in three minutes, get us to a nice little clinic." She's got her phone out, already dialling, though she waits for Yuuno's response before hitting 'send'. "I don't know how good you are with healing magic but I don't like dealing with poison, not one bit. And I know this guy keeps hornet antivenin stocked." She'd rather not explain why a 'discrete clinic' would keep that sort of thing around, however.
Nanoha Takamachi 2017-12-10 04:35:06 87495
Yuuno frowns. "She should be okay. The poison has been neutralized. I'll get her to an actual hospital." he says. He looks between the two and sighs. "It wasn't my intention to 'hide' myself." he says. "I just couldn't..." he squints. "...Nanoha was the first human I met here. She didn't have any way to fight. But. When I told her I had to go back out to try to capture the Jewel Seed that I was trying to fight before I injured myself. She said."

"'I can't let you do that!'." he says. "And she wouldn't let me take no for an answer." he sighs.

"-then Raising Heart unlocked for her. Which shouldn't technically had been possible but it did." he says. "So I just. Hung around. As a ferret. Because once again. It was easy for me to just hide as a 'pet'." he offers.

"Speaking of. Raising Heart, how's her vitals?"

< Weak. Master Nanoha requires medical assistance. >. Yuuno sighs. No kidding.

"It's just the gash now then." he says.

"Hospital. Nanoha's parents' already threw a fit when Fate Testarossa took her home for 'Aid' in the past month already and she had to explain that." he says. He scoops up Nanoha again. "I'll take her to the road and call a proper ambulance. Okay?" he says to the others. "I can't move very fast otherwise." as if asking if anyone could get her there faster.
Mikoto Nakajima 2017-12-10 04:44:34 87496
    "Eh, my ride can go to Tokyo General as easily as to - the clinic." Hagane shrugs, "Ambulance might be faster, but they'll call her parents ... heck, they would one way or another." It's one reason she uses the 'clinic' in question. Still, she's pressed the matter as far as she can, she'll go along with whatever Yuuno decides, at this point.

    Then she hrms. "'Kari, you think we got enough between us for a four-point teleport? Should still have the coordinates on file from the last time."

    The kitten mews softly, then squirms a little in Hagane's arms. <(Four to Tokyo General? Sure, no problem, 'neechan. Just let me slip into something more comfortable.)> The cat jumps out of her arms, transforming as she falls, until a silver-haired girl in jeans and t-shirt stands there. "Whenever you're ready, space-ferret-boy."
Rashmi Terios 2017-12-10 04:44:39 87497
Anything Rashmi could say to Yuuno's reasoning, very likely wouldn't be anything the not-a-ferret hasn't told himself. Knowing this, the redhead simply keeps her mouth shut, and nods gently. "Let me know when she's okay to have visitors, Yuuno-san? I'll get a care package set up for her."

Which point Hagane's prevarications finally break into her train of thought, and start holding up the joint. "...Wait. Why would someone just ha-- ....I don't want to know, do I?"
