Maria Hanazawa- Lacrima's new civilian identity- was following a salaryman from the bus stop. Salaryman didn't really taste good to her. She imagines they taste of what Beer and bad Karoke sound like. But. They're also some of the best targets when they scatter because they don't crowd like kids might-- this means Maria spends an unladylike amount of time watching them leaves bars at night.

She just happened to follow this one. A Salaryman didn't often take routes through alleys. Which mean that she had to play tricks. Which meant sliding into an alley the Salaryman just passed, and then calling out from it.

"Help me! Help! Pleasssse." came a pathetic voice. Lacrima has already shifted from Maria to Lacrima by now, melding with the dark, driving the now concerned Salaryman deeper into the dark alley. Deep enough as to muffle cries and keep out of sight. Closer... closer... come on..... she says to herself in her head....

He's about halfway down the long alley with a dead end.

From above the city, a shadowy figure kept low to the shadows, crouching in alleyways as she followed the same salaryman with a look of hunger in her eyes. Dressed mostly in black with a black cloak of sorts around her shoulders, she seemed to blend in well with the shadows, barely making a noise as she followed her would-be dinner from a short distance.

She didn't make a habit of choosing a particular type of person over another, and it was largely a random thing, grabbing a person on their own..When she hears the sounds of a cry coming from a neary alley however, she arches a brow and pauses, stepping into a shadowy corner near the entrance to the alley, long ears pricked intently beneath her hooded cloak. Hmmm, this could be interesting..Should she go for the man or the girl in the alley? As the man descends into the darkenned alley, she decides to follow, cutting him off from the entrance, pulling off her cloak in the darkness and spreading her wings as she crouches behind him, ready to pounce at her first opportunity..

The purple haired, purple eyed, pale skinned girl begins to make her jump out, shadow billowing out from her hiding spot when.....

What... what the....

"Wha--what!?" she says. Probably surprise words that Mew Black Cherry might had heard before, but not what comes next. "HEY THAT'S MY DINNER LEAVE HIM ALONE!" she calls out.

"GO AWAY! FIND YOUR OWN HUMAN TO DRAIN!" she says frustratingly, the elegantly dressed young girl says.

She stamps her foot for effect. Stamp! Stamp! Also she's kinda glowering with a dark energy aura now but it doesn't seem so much damaging as an effect of her current sudden frustration.

The girl pulls off her cloak to reveal long black batwings that stretch out behind her like a black leathery cloak. She no longer tries to hide from her potential prey, her short, deep pink sheath dress overlayed in delicate black lace and corsetted up the front, making her petite form appear more like some cute bittersweet lolita cosplayer rather than the vampiress that she is..Except for when she bares her long sharp fangs, dark pink eyes narrowed dangerously at the other girl.

"Who are you, little girl? Are you trying to mock my style? This is MY prey and I found him first so you'd better back off!" she snarls and doesn't back down, clenching and unclenching her fists to reveal a set of long sharp claws on each finger as she rushes suddenly at the man, attempting to pin him to the wall if the other girl doesn't intervene first.
Lacrima 2018-03-20 03:01:06 89607
Lacrima /ughs/ like she's so flustered but she isn't gonna bother trying to stop the other because it isn't worth fighting over a human when she can just go find another one easy enough.

She sighs and rolls her eyes. "Fine, fine eat his energy or blood or whatever. I know how it goes. But if you kill him I'm gonna have to actually do something about it." she mutters.

She sighs. and fidgets frustratingly. "So what you. A youma?" she asks curtly. "Something from that dark between place?" she asks.

She huffs. "I'm not /MOCKING/ you. I'm a vampire and that was my dinner." she says frankly.

Mew Black Cherry pauses a moment, glancing away from the frightenned man who ends up fainting. The other girl's response seems to have caught her by surprise and she briefly lets go of the unconcious man, turning around to face the other girl. "What...You're not even gonna try and stop me? You're not even gonna put up a fight? Where's the fun in that?" she smirks, shaking her head, "No, not a youma, just a vampire. How about you? That's a pretty cute dress you got there. Are those wings real?" The 'vampire' quip causes her to gasp a bit, pausing briefly to peer at her curiously, smile fading a bit. "Waaiiit, you're a vampire too? For real..? Then...It seems we're on the same side.." shrugging a bit, the girl glances back at her prey. "Why do you care if he lives or dies? If you need to feed then I'd be happy to share..I know what it's like, needing to feed to live.."
Lacrima 2018-03-20 03:39:44 89614
Lacrima blinks. "Wait you're a vampire, too?" she asks, almost similar to Mew Black Cherry's surprise. She shakes her head. "No that'd kill him. You go." she says curtly. "I'm not /starving/." she says.

She frowns. "Because I'm a vampire, not a monster." she says more coldly. "And you should care, too." she says silently.

"Do you feed via energy? or... what?" she asks more quietly. "I eat human energy." she says quietly. She isn't more specific. "And I don't /die/. I can't /die/." she says. "I'm a dark energy construct. I'm basically eternal. I just also don't like being a mindless monster that runs rampant until I've 'eaten' enough to snap out of it." she says quietly.

Mew Black Cherry arches a brow at something Lacrima says but shrugs and grabs the man, pressing her lips against his neck. However, she does not dive her fangs into the soft flesh but simply presses a kiss on him, her deep pink lips glowing intently as she draws energy from him.

The man wakes up briefly, eyes openning slightly in surprise but after she drains his energy, he falls to the ground, his chest rising up and down slowly, sleeping deeply now it seems.

"There we go.." she licks her lips, "He will wake up in a few hours, although he will probably be a bit..Disoriented when he finds out where he is." The girl smirks, turning around to face the other girl. "Not a monster..? Is that really the only difference between a vampire and a monster? We're still hurting people." she seems amused by this conversation, although arching a curious brow at the 'magical construct' bit. "Waiit, so you're a vampire, constructed from..Dark energy? Then you're not...Real..?"
Lacrima 2018-03-20 04:13:53 89621
Lacrima frowns. "I don't hurt people because I want to, I hurt them because I need to feed." she says quietly. "If I had my way, I'd not need to hurt anyone to eat." she says quietly. She gently purses her lips. Wait. She drains via /kissing/. That's really odd. and strange and, she scrunches her nose.

"So. Energy. Okay." she says with a calm breath. She frowns.

"I was human. I bought a necklace. That necklace contained effectively, the power of an older predecessor vampire and it infected me, ate my body- effectively killed me and gave me this one." she says a little coldly.

"My name is La Crima. It means 'teardrop' in the Spanish language." she says softly. "The power gave me that name. It knew I didn't want it." she says with a sigh.

"What's your name?" she asks softly.
Cheri Koumori 2018-03-20 04:20:16 89622
Mew Black Cherry arches a brow at the girl, scratching her chin thoughtfully. "Yes, that is usually the reason people drain energy, isn't it?" she shrugs, "Of course I've never met another energy vampire like myself.."

she starts to walk towards the other girl, walking around her now as she inspects her wings from behind, but doesn't stand close enough to actually touch them. "Ahh, so I gather the wings are just for decoration then? Interesting. And a cursed necklace you say?" she frowns, "How very...Unfortunate.."

There is more curiosity in her eyes and her tone than sympathy for Lacrima, although she pauses in front of her and grins, "Lacrima, hmm? what a lovely name, perhaps the power gave it to you for a reason, hm? Nice to meet you. My name is Mew Black Cherry."
Lacrima 2018-03-20 04:30:53 89625
Lacrima huffs. "I can turn into a bat if you're really looking for that kinda proof." she says frankly. "But more like a 'real' bat. And yeah. The wings are just a part of the costume." she says frankly. "I can fly without them though." she says.

She frowns. "Yes I already told you the reason. It knows I didn't want it. It knows it'd make me sad. And upset." she says frankly. "The progenitor of the power was named 'Poderoso' it means 'Powerful' and tells you everything it needs to about that person." she says frankly.

"Mew Black..." she blinks a little. "You're a Mew?" she asks. "Why are you doing this then?" she asks curiously. "I know one, but... he doesn't. Eat. People. I think." she says scrunching her nose.
Cheri Koumori 2018-03-20 04:36:18 89626
Mew Black Cherry ooohs, looking interested. "Really? You can turn into a bat? How cute.." she smiles, "I'd like to see that, sometime." she arches a brow, in confusion at the name, shaking her head. "Why does it make you sad?" but the answer is right in front of her.

"Soo, that artefact that cursed you and turned you into this kinda tells a person's fortune by giving them a name that they live up to?" she ponders aloud, shrugging, "But surely you are the master of your own destiny. That is...Truly sad.." just there, for a moment, she seems truly sorry for the other girl.

"Yes, I am a Mew, as for my powers..." she frowns, bites her lip as she tries to think that over. Almost as if she's uncertain of where her powers came from.

"Well, I suppose it is simply my nature to be this way. I am a vampire bat merged with a human as the result of...Well I suppose it must have been some sort of..Accident? I don't really know. But I also need energy to live. Human energy."
Lacrima 2018-03-20 04:55:09 89628
Lacrima purses her lips. "I see." she says quietly. She doesn't. She takes a little bit of a soft breath. "Well. If you haven't been... what you are... for long I have some pointers." she says softly.

"Don't make big energy grabs unless you wanna make attention to yourself. People will try to stop you. Even if they're friends with you. Usually. I know some of my friends will hit me with things if they catch me trying to feed and they catch me." she sighs miserably.

"People tend to be sympathetic when they find out you 'need' to feed. How you handle that is up to you." she says quietly.

"It's not my place to tell you what's wrong or right. Hardly. I mean. I eat people's energy and my idea of a fun time is sort of hanging in a creepy old manor so." she shrugs a bit with a short 'whatcha gonna do about' expression.
Cheri Koumori 2018-03-20 04:59:14 89629
Mew Black Cherry arches a brow at Lacrima, seeming to be sizing her up, considering something for a moment or two before she speaks. "Oh, I suppose that makes sense. I haven't been this way for long to be honest. And, things are pretty confusing and hazy. I feel like I just woke up a week ago, before that point, I don't really remember much, just some beam of light hitting me and...Suddenly this craving for energy."

She just shrugs, "Oh, I see. I suppose people are pretty paranoid that way, I guess we can't expect them to really understand people like us, but I suppose that's sound advice." she smirks, "And what about you? You say you've been this way for a while? How long, exactly? I think living in a creepy manor sounds kind of fun. Are you pretty wealthy then?"
Lacrima 2018-03-20 05:24:10 89630
Lacrima sighs. "It'd be two years about." she says quietly. "A little longer." she says quietly. "Yeah. I woke up. And suddenly I felt weird and my brother walked into the room and..." she shakes her head. "It isn't important. Wealthy? Maybe." she says more coyly. "I'm not rich. From my family. But who I work for pays well enough." she says quietly.

"You get used to this." she says quietly. "After long enough." she says quietly. "But you don't seem to be having the same problems I did." she says.

She doesn't state if it's good or not. "I should... find something else to eat." she says quietly. "Do you need... some way to contact me?" she asks softly. "in the future?"
Cheri Koumori 2018-03-20 05:31:04 89631
Mew Black Cherry blinks, "Two years? Wow, I guess you've been doing pretty well for two years. But I get the feeling that the dark curse that possesses you is far stronger than the dark magic that I use. My body is real, not a dark magic construct, and this is not a curse so much as what I am. At least, it's all I remember being. I remember being a bat, and also a girl. It's..." she frowns, rubs her temples, "It's a little confusing at times. I'm not sure what happened to me exactly..You said you knew of another Mew...? Where can I find him? Perhaps he can tell me more.." she shrugs on the mention of 'problems', seeming uncertain of how to comment on that. As for contacting her, she grins and nods, "I'd like that. I think we have some things in common. Perhaps we can help one another."
Lacrima 2018-03-20 05:37:54 89633
Lacrima purses her lips. "His name is... Macaroon." she says. "I will. Let him know you're looking." she says quietly. She frowns. "My curse is stronger. But the darkness doesn't pull at me anymore. The darkness doesn't want it already has." she says quietly. "If... you still have a 'human' body. A human life." she says quietly.

"If you start. Hearing another voice. Feel. Urges." she says. "Fight them. If you can." is all she offers.

She gently conjures a black card. "This is my number." the number has WAY more many numbers than a phone number should. "Dial that in anywhere. It /will/ work. It's. Weird magic. Outside normal communication lines. A phone provided my employer. It's private." she says quietly.

She sighs and shrugs. "Contact me in a week. I should have spoken to him by then. I hope." she says.

And with that, she turns around and walks towards the wall, disappearing into a mist of black ichor, somewhere else to hunt tonight.
Cheri Koumori 2018-03-20 05:40:34 89634
Mew Black Cherry hmms, "Mew Macaroon, you say?" she smiles, a strange smiles and nods, "I see. I'll have to pay him a visit! I'm sure he will have the answers I need." she frowns a bit at the word 'curse'. "Voices? Urges? I see..I wont let anyone control me. This is my life now." she smiles as she takes teh card, peering at it thoughtfully, nodding and slipping it into a hidden pocket in her dress. "Thanks for that. I'm sure we'll meet again, Miss Lacrima."
