Don't FLY away with my heart

Sakura and Haruna meet Corvus' crush... The Fly card! A fast paced pursuit through the city takes place, ending with slamming into the side of a building! But hey, that's what insurance is for, right?

Sakura Kinomoto 2018-02-23 00:19:05 88970
Sakura Kinomoto was... late! Of course she was late. She was almost always late. It's why she could devour a four course meal in under thirty seconds. But running everywhere was GREAT for not gaining weight. So tiny sis remained tiny sis!

She ran into the shop, squeaked and wove through the crowd. "Sorry, sorry, sorry!" Well, at least she didn't hit anybody. "I'm sorry I'm la--" Pause. "Oh, I'm ten seconds early!"

Tomoyo applauded from her (likely reserved at this point) table, sipping her tea. "You're so cute when you're in a rush, Sakura!"

Sakura blinked and chuckled, rubbing the back of her head. "I'll go change! Be right back!" before running off.

There was a flap of wings and a shadow glided over the shop as a big bird flew overhead...

Sakura blinked. Did... did she just sense a card? No. Impossible.
Haruna Kurosawa 2018-02-23 00:30:07 88971
Haruna Kurosawa justs in hours early to make sure the coffee is hot and ready for open, that the first run of pastries are ready and that it's it's timmme to make the donuts! Regardless, she's been busy. Corvus perched in bird form on the railing outside on the patio. Looking grumpy. But this wasn't new. He hated being up early.

MEANWHILE, Haruna is definitely a morning person. She blinks and peeks at the door. "Oh! Sakura-chan~ Hiii. Hiii Tomoyo-chan~ Oh! You're early for a change!" she says. "I mean. Only a little early, but still! better than late." she says as she slides the tray of goodies into the display case. "There! Ready for the morning rush." she insists.

A pause. "Huh. Is that big bird back?~ Corvus's girlfriend."

"I DON'T HAVE A GIRLFRIEND." insisted Corvus from outside.
Sakura Kinomoto 2018-02-23 00:49:50 88972
Sakura Kinomoto flushed and nodded. "Right! I'll get right--" And stopped midway to the back, whipped right back around and... turned towards Corvus. "Wait. Did... did you say girl friend?" she asked, her eyes glimmering and sparkling. And then...

Fwoom. The massive, glimmering bird landed right next to him and, almost instantly... A giant wing latched out, wrapping around Corvus and yanking him in, nuzzling its beaked head against his and making soft, adorable cooing sounds.

Sakura gasped, her eyes glimmering. "Awwwww. They're such a cute couple! Have they been together long?"

Tomoyo, of course, likely had pictures. And recordings. Why? Because she was Tomoyo and sakura had been gone a while. She had to entertain herself SOMEHOW.

"Is she a... phoenix?" Well, she was a... weird bird. "Or... some kind of... from the zoo?"
Haruna Kurosawa 2018-02-23 01:01:14 88974
Corvus didn't see the big shadow. Corvus is now paying for that. Because Corvus is being smothered by the bigger bird, as he hacks and coughs and squirms. He knows Haruna won't help because Corvus isn't in an actual danger and Haruna kind of thinks it's cute and technically you have a lot of bad karma to burn off when you try to eat the souls of the entire world and maybe this is part of that!?

"That's Corvus's girlfriend yup!" she insists, despite the squaking Seagull between Corvus's 'Lemme gos!' and 'awks!'.

"I dunno what she is. She's big and stuff though." she says slyly.
Sakura Kinomoto 2018-02-23 01:11:44 88976
Sakura Kinomoto giggled softly and stepped forward. "She's really pretty! Do you think I can pe-- I'm gonna be late!" Oh, that ship had sailed. She ran off into the back room, flailing.

Tomoyo just giggled and smiled. "She really is so cute when she's panicked, isn't she?"

Meanwhile, Fly kept nuzzling the other bird, its big wing holding him close to his chest.

Sakura came walking out, grinning wide. "okay, I'm ready to go! What do you want me to do first? Oh, and ummm... can I pet the bird?" she asked, poking her fingers together and looking excited.
Haruna Kurosawa 2018-02-23 01:18:57 88978
Haruna Kurosawa tapped her lip. "I need the tables clean before proper opening~" she says. "So can you do that?" she asks softly. She then huh'ed a bit. "What pet the bird? I mean you can pet Corvus. I know Corvus. I dunno the big bird that much. I mean..."

"It seems friendly, but you shouldn't pet birds you don't know but..."

"Maybe you can go try? Just. be gentle. Make sure it's aware and if it bites ya, well. I guess we're going to the hospital." she says sheepishly.

"I don't even know it's name though." she says.

Corvus is till trying to get away to not avail! Awk! Squawk!
Sakura Kinomoto 2018-02-23 01:50:54 88982
Sakura Kinomoto grinned and slowly moved closer, reaching her hand out and... then froze.

The bird let out a shriek and then spread its wings wide, turning on her. She shrieked and then stumbled back as it turned to Corvus. It took to the air... and massive talons shot out, grabbing and hauling him into the air.

Sakura stared, then... "That's a card!" she yelled, staring. "I-I felt it, when it was, it was a, it's a card!" she yelled. "We need to go after it!"

"WAIT!" Tomoyo said.

"What?" sakura asked.

"I have a costume!"

"Tomoyo, there's no time!"

"It'll just take a moment!" and then pulled out from her bag... was... no way. That just... no... It was an adorable little pretty girl outfit... a lot like Haruna's but... with a more theme towards Sakura's cutesy wand and wing symbol things.
Haruna Kurosawa 2018-02-23 02:02:02 88984
Haruna Kurosawa blinks a bit. "Wait. What?" she asks. And then the giant bird just KIDNAPPED Corvus!? And Sakura is insisting it's a card!? She doesn't need magic cards explained to her. She had to collect those herself. Her own mind. Not Sakura's. BUT She's gonna help get Sakura's cards still.

"Dammit! Really!? Awwwww man." she huffs. Here she thought Corvus just found a big magical bird girlfriend.

She makes a face as Sakura goes off to get changed. She huffs and pulls out her PrettyChange! Mirror. "Rolling Mirror Change!"

Ti-Ti-Time to Change!~

There's a transformation-- and Cure Gull is here.

"....You can fly, right?" she asks, just as she was about to take off after the bird that kidnapped her bird.
Sakura Kinomoto 2018-02-23 02:24:42 88988
Sakura Kinomoto sighed and then, soon, she came out in... tiny, adorable, pink cure captor outfit. Her cheeks were burning. "D-do I look silly?" she asked.

"You look adorable!" Tomoyo said, her camera already out. Sakura just sighed. There was no escape, was there? Noooope. She then glanced to Haruna. "What? Fly? No! Ummm... but.. I have..."

She pulled out three cards. Jump, float and dash. "I can keep up. Let's go, okay?" she said before... "Dash, jump! Help me catch up!" she yelled. She then took off, leaping forward, landing on the side of the building, before jumping to the next, and next...

Fly, meanwhile, had its claws wrapped tightly around corvus, flying through the city and taking them up higher and her... Yeah... he was in danger now. Before she sparkled. Now? The card seemed to be getting... bigger. The bird had been big before... but now... it had already almost doubled in side.
Haruna Kurosawa 2018-02-23 02:50:44 88993
"Oh god, oh god, oh god, oh god, HELP ME HERE!" screams Corvus. Cure Gull looks back to Sakura and grins. "You look cute! Come on, then, Sakura-chan!" she calls out as she takes a jump upwards into the air, flying fast after the big bird and Corvus.



Sakura Kinomoto 2018-02-23 03:00:15 88994
Sakura Kinomoto nods. Then shakes her head. Then... "I don't know! I mean, if we hit just the card, it should be fine, but it has its claws around him and it might hurt him if we hit it! But... ummm... I'm not... really sure what else to do. I mean... I have some cards but... can... you get me onto its back?" she asked, stopping and... "Float card, make me weightless!" she called.

"You can o it Sakura-chan! Cure gull-chan!" Tomoyo yelled, cheering them on.

Sakura held out her hand to Cure Gull...
Haruna Kurosawa 2018-02-23 03:20:40 88995
Cure Gull takes Sakura's hand and smiles. "I can do that!" she says. "This'll be better than me flinging magic razor feathers." she says softly. She huffs. "This'll be fast..." she says.

And oh god it is, when Cure Gull just lets herself, from an exterior view- just turn into a flash of teal seafoam green laser light.

"Okay... here...." she lifts Sakura back and then attempts to toss her towards the Card-Bird's back.

"Here we go!" she says.

"Get her, Sakura-chan!" she calls out.


"AWK!" goes Corvus.

"THAT'S THE SPIRIT!" says Cure Gull.
Sakura Kinomoto 2018-02-23 03:32:18 88996
Sakura Kinomoto blinked and then paled.

Wait. Fast? How-- OH GOSH WHY! She shrieked, flailing her hands as she sailed at the bird. On the up side, the bird was not the size of a rather large truck, so she hit the back and kind of rolled, gripping onto it and holding on. Owo wow ow ow. @.@

The bird awrked angrily... And then turned straight up, going high, high into the sky. At least it wasn't growing any more. Now tht it was the size of a JET. A giant blue JET!

Sakura held on as the ground started disappearing below them. She drew a card. "C-come on. Arrow card! Hit its wings!" she yelled.

Arrows rained down on them and... Fly awked, pain shooting through it. It spun in a tight circle, before its claws opened, releasing a (likely dizzy) corvus...

But Sakura was still holding on and trying not to fly off.
Haruna Kurosawa 2018-02-23 03:46:01 88997
Cure Gull is good at flying. Both because it's her name sake and because that's just how Cures working under Blue just work. They all fly really well and fast. She's keeping up, making sure she can catch Sakura if she looses grip and needs to be caught.

"That's it, Sakura-chan!" she calls out.

"Hrk! @.@" goes Corvus.

"IT'S OKAY CORVUS THERE'S DRAMAINE AT HOME!" she calls out. "Come on Sakura-chan! You can do it! But lemme help, okay!?" she calls out, drawing a hand back.

"Gull... Feather Storm!" she calls out, a short stream of green , magic razor feathers slamming out towards one of those wings to help along Sakura's arrow shot.
Sakura Kinomoto 2018-02-23 03:52:10 88998
Sakura Kinomoto groaned. Ow ow... wait. Help? Feather sto--

The second wing is struck. The bird veered hard and-- BAM! Slammed through the window of a building. Sakura was sent flying, fortunately inside the building, hitting a wall. The bird, now in a confined spot, let out a fierce battle cry before... advancing on the dazed, hurt girl.

Sakura groaned, blinking blearily. Ow. A bit cut up, glass everywhere and... BEAK! She shrieked, lifting up her want and BARELY stopping the beak before it hit her, making it glance off the wand.

Haruna Kurosawa 2018-02-23 04:11:32 89002
Oh! Oh no!

RCure Gull makes for a landing in the building after. Grounded. Grounded is good. Grounded is good because it gives her a chance to pull out her mirror and.....

Ti-Ti-Time to Change!

Blueberry Waltz!

She can't fly in an elegant ballgown, but she can turn around to that giant hole and ice it over, to TRAP the bird in here. Which she does, with a windy flurry of ice and sleet, before she turns back around to the battle.

"Sakura-chan!" she calls out. "HEY YOU COME BACK HERE, YOU BIG BULLY! YOU WE'RE SUPPOSED TO BE HIS GULLFRIEND." a pause. Yeah she said it. "BUT YOU DO THIS!?" she calls out. "I'D NEVER PUNCH HANNA----wait no. That that's not true... um. I'D NEVER PUNCH HANNAH SO HARD I'D HURT HER LIKE THAT!" she calls out finally.

"BLUEBERRY SNOWBOUND TWO-STEP!" she calls out, taking a little bit fo a waltz move, which then explodes out into a wave of freezing ice. She's trying to freeze the card some. Make it slower. Sakura isn't targeted in this. The winds seem to mold and curve around her, strangely.
Sakura Kinomoto 2018-02-23 04:16:46 89003
Sakura Kinomoto let out a shriek as the bird pulled back for another strike. Then... ICE! Everything was being frozen. Ice encased the bird, not enough to stop it, but... well... enough for Sakura to ready another card. The beak flew in. "POWER!" she called.

And BAM!

She kicked the bird. In the face. And through the ice and a chunk of the wall. She squeaked, inching over as the bird sailed down and slammed to the ground below. Eyes all @.@.

"I ummm... I think I over did it... is... is Corvus okay?" she asked. "Oh dear..."
Haruna Kurosawa 2018-02-23 04:34:49 89004
Cure Gull blinks as the Blueberry Waltz henshin poofs upon realization of Corvus. "CORVUS-CHANNNNN!" she calls out as she runs back toward's the frozen opening. Corvus is there on the floor, Flopped. "No more dates. No more dates pleasssse." he begs. Cure Gull sighs and rolls her eyes. "You're fine." she says. She scoops him up and walks back.

"Good job Sakura-chan! Can you um. Card it? Before it regains it senses?" she asks softly.

"I don't really want it getting an idea to get a thing for Corvus again until then." she says meekly.
Sakura Kinomoto 2018-02-23 04:57:04 89005
Sakura Kinomoto nods, drawing her wand and.... "Return to your true form!" she yells. The bird is drawn up, forming a large card in her hand. The Fly. She blinked, signing it a moment later. Then glanced to Corvus. "Ummmm... do you want to say goodbye?" she asked, holding the card out.

Then looked around at the property damage. She gulped. "O-oh no." Then looked to cure gull. "W-what do we do? Should we leave a note? I-I don't think my allowance will cover this... but... but we can't just leave it..." All that damage.
Haruna Kurosawa 2018-02-23 05:02:19 89006
Cure Gull looks around and leans down. "Don't worry about it. It's early enough that no one seems in. They'll just think it was a gas leak. Besides. It wasn't your or mine fault. It was the card." she nods. "So don't feel bad okay? Insurance exists for a reason and hey, probably a paid day off for the salarymen today." she winks.

She huffs and turns to the ice wall. "...Like an Air conditioner malfunctioned and exploded. Yeah. That's it." she says with a smug smile. She'll make for one of the normal, broken smaller window then.

"Let's get back to the Cafe, though! It's almost opening oh god." she says.

Corvus grumbles... "Bye..." is all he can say as he takes off with Haruna. Yeah. He's...probably not gonna miss too much of this.

"Come on Sakura-chan!" she says.
Sakura Kinomoto 2018-02-23 05:04:12 89007
Sakura Kinomoto nodded and... "Okay... ummm..." She glanced at the new card.

She wondered... "Fly card! Give me wings!"

... Well... it... She shrieked, then gasped. And then flew by, riding her wind. Wellll... She could at least fly now! That was pretty cool!

Tomoyo just watched, smiled, and recorded it all.
