Sailor Earth had been bothered by something, picking at the back of her brain. If she'd been more capable of controlling her energy she'd have been able to mark it down and understand what was driving her up the wall - well, more than Mamoru having her energy or the Senshi giving her grief.

But since she wasn't, she was wandering around Tokyo, trying to seek out the problem. And a walking girl has to eat. Ergo, donuts. And so the tall hair with the eyes like oceans is walking away from the donut stand, nomfing a donut in one hand and the others sitting in a box in her other hand.

And there's a girl from Seishou sitting on a bench, flipping through an old leatherbound book with silver chains loosely wrapped around it. She's occassionally looking up, and when she spots the familiar-seeming girl with the box of donuts and frustrated expressions, she keeps looking a bit. Clearly curious, perhaps a bit too much so. The book gets closed, chains tightened, and put into a backpack. Soon after, she gets up and approaches, "Do I know you?"
Sailor Earth 2018-04-16 19:46:41 90298
Mirai - Sailor Earth - looks up, mouth full of donut. Then she swallows it. "I don't think so?" She doesn't register the girl as being anyone she should know - not a denzien of the Golden Kingdom as far as she can tell, not someone Takashi pointed her at.

"Maybe you know someone who reminds you of me, though?" She asks. Wouldn't be the first time. Knowing who might come to /his/ defense might be useful.
Sora Hisakata 2018-04-16 19:51:15 90299
"Maybe, wouldn't know who, though..." Now the thing is that Sora knows Mamoru but doesn't know him very well, so she has some trouble connection the dots. "Anyway, you looked troubled. Anything you'd like to talk about with a random stranger, or would you rather I leave you alone?" The offer seems genuine, because it is. Sora is trying to atone for past misdeeds.
Sailor Earth 2018-04-16 20:00:59 90300
Here, Mirai makes a guess. Assuming that if the girl knows Mamoru, and is sitting here reading a strange book, there is 'possibly' more than meets the eye. But possibly not - so she decided to be coy.

"Hey, not unless you can help me with the metaphysical problems of the universe." she said. "Or with these donuts." The way she said it, she could always lean on it being a joke if need be.
Sora Hisakata 2018-04-16 20:04:08 90301
"I don't have a good track record with those, but I can give it a try." Sora answers with a half-raised eyebrow and a slight turn of her head. "Better track record than with donuts, though." There's a bit of a cheeky grin at that comment. "What kind of metaphysical problems?"
Sailor Earth 2018-04-16 20:07:21 90302
Mirai passed her one of the donuts. "Just problems with a guy named Mamoru Chiba." It was like she was wincing when she told Sora the name. "You familiar with him?" She then paused. blinked.

And FLAILED. Probably the first time she'd ever done that. "It's not a romance thing!" she said quickly.
Sora Hisakata 2018-04-16 20:11:38 90303
"Somewhat." Sora notices the wince and decides to play a little loose with the truth. "He beat me up once. Some kind of would-be hero, I think?" Nothing she's saying is technically a lie, but it is somewhat deceptive, and she sighs in relief at the last line she hears, "Good. Dating him seems like it'd be dreadful."
Sailor Earth 2018-04-16 20:16:40 90304
"It would be more than dreadful." she hisses, and stuffs her mouth with a bit more donut. Finishes it off, before she starts to talk. "He and I have... a bad history. He's a thief, a liar, and a crook. I'm not surprised he'd get in a fight with you."

"He can't be a hero because he started everything off with evil." she clenched her fist so hard she squished her donut.
Sora Hisakata 2018-04-16 20:21:23 90305
"I'm honestly trying to stay out of fights for or against justice these days. Last time I got involved didn't end well for me, I just try to protect people I care about." Sora admits calmly as she begins to connect the dots, "Usually my first instinct if I needed help with a hypocrite like that, I'd talk to my friend Riventon. What kind of help do you need anyway?"
Sailor Earth 2018-04-16 20:25:47 90306
"Riventon?" Mirai blinked. She knew him as Takashi, but didn't usually use his henshin name. So she didn't react as fast. "I don't know. He's got... something very dear to me. Something that makes me... who I am. Who I should be. Who I was." she says, cryptically.

"And now it feels all wrong. Like he's done something wrong with it. I need to get it back from him but I think if I do all of my old friends will hate me so much." She genuinely sounds sad.
Sora Hisakata 2018-04-16 20:33:04 90307
Sora hmmms to herself, quite curious, she opens up her backpack and gets out the strange book along with a pen, and flips through it until she gets to a blank page, then quickly writes down. 'I'm standing here with a girl who believes some fellow named Mamoru Chiba has something very important to her; and that if she claims it back all her old friends will hate her for it.' Then the book responds with a simple one word question, and Sora repeats that question out loud. "Why?"
Sailor Earth 2018-04-16 20:37:58 90308
Mirai slumps a bit. And is almost out of donuts. "Because... the boy who uses the name Mamoru Chiba has stolen everything from me. Who I am. My friends. My love. He's left me with nothing except a drive to claw it all back. I can't even explain what it's like to anyone else. Nobody will even understand."

"That should even be my name!"
Sora Hisakata 2018-04-16 20:43:00 90309
An interesting accusation to be certain, but Sora knows enough to know it's not impossible, and since she's trying to be at least pretend to be supportive, she puts the book away and closes in, trying to put a supporting hand on Mirai's shoulder. "That sounds awful. If there's anything I can do to help you, just..." She gets out a piece of paper and writes down a phone number. "Give me a call and I'll see what I can do. At the very least, I promise I'll look into this." Getting Mamoru's side of the story counts as looking into it, right? "What should I call you?"
Sailor Earth 2018-04-16 20:48:09 90310
"I don't know. If I come up with anything I need a friend for, maybe I'll call you. If I can call you that." she said, lowly. Last donut, gone. Box, empty. Girl, sad.

"My name... right now... is Mirai. But one day I'll get my name back with my powers and friends and everything else." There's a certain almost dangerous emphasis in her tone, and her eyes, for a moment, capture the rage and power of an ocean storm.
Sora Hisakata 2018-04-16 20:52:38 90311
"Sure. I mean, I'm not sure I'm a good friend, but I can try." Mental flashback to setting Jiaying on fire... several times. She watches that emphasis, and notices the rage in those eyes. She knows that attitude all too well, she lived it once. "Just be careful, ok? That Guy seems to have a lot of friends, and I don't know if they'll listen." She pauses and decides to take a mildly risky move. "My name's Sora Hisakata, by the way. Nice to meet you, Mirai-for-now. I hope everything will turn out for the best eventually."
Sailor Earth 2018-04-16 21:11:12 90312
Mirai eventually shakes it out of herself before she ends up causing a scene with one of her uncontrolled energy surges. "I'm sorry to drag you into this when I barely even know you. Donuts seem like they're not enough of a trade." she notes.

And she had let herself get carried away, for sure. "Thank you for your time though, Hisakata-san. And... I'll leave you a message and maybe I can help you, too. Especially if he tries to fight you again."
