What is 'Final Judgement' for $500 Kero-kun?

Haruna Kurosawa and Sakura talk about what the Final Judgement is while Kero is there to answer questions. Apparently something really bad happens if Sakura fails. Sakura won't fail though. Right? Go Go lilsis! ;_;

Yesterday, Riventon beat up Sakura and it was really by happenstance that she happened upon the fight- and Sakura's giant 'Power' blast and that little itch she had that really all magical girls have when 'bad stuff is going down'. She'd had brought her somewhere safe. Make sure she was okay. Then she'd ask her to come by the shop either earlier before work, or stay late after.

Earlier probably works better, due to Sakura's age and not wanting to keep her from going home too late. Definitely not after dark. Definitely without Riventon apparently going after her now.

THUSLY. It's that time right before the shop is ready for open but it isn't time to open yet. Also. She's prepared hot chocolates. and there are the shops mostly ubiqoutous turnovers on a plate in the middle.

Also there's a tiny hot chocolate cup for Kero because Haruna is aware of mascot inclusion.

Corvus is in his 'human form' in the back apparently dealing with clean up, and therefore unseen!

Sakura can just walk in. She WORKS here afterall.
Sakura Kinomoto 2018-04-22 17:05:31 90559
Sakura Kinomoto arrived a bit earlier, in a small, blue sun dress. Her inner jupiter said to punch Riventon in the face. Sadly, she wasn't one to listen to it very often. Then again, she DID punch Black Sakura in the face, so maybe.

Kero was on her head(there were cookies promised. He was NOT MISSING THIS.) And she was wearing her roller blades, as usual.

She gave Corvus a wave... And a granola bar. "My dad made them! They're really good!" before she ran to meet with Haruna, who got one as well. She then sat down and...

"What did you want to talk about? Is... it about Riventon?"
Haruna Kurosawa 2018-04-22 17:16:00 90560
Haruna Kurosawa smiles and sits down and motions for Sakura to sit when she's ready. Corvus takes the Granola bar. "Thank you, Sakura-chan." he says. Haruna Kurosawa sighs as she sips hot chocolate. She also motions to the turnovers.

Breakfast for her. She isn't sure about Sakura-chan.

"Well kind of. What happened?" she asks. "Riventon usually doesn't do the feather-motif thing. Or use a cane device like that." she says.

"But." she says, she turns to Kero.

"I actually need to ask YOU some things." she says. "Probably hard questions. If I had to guess." she says more quietly.
Sakura Kinomoto 2018-04-22 17:22:47 90561
Sakura Kinomoto sighed. "Really? The cane is how he's been stealing my cards. I... think the feathers were just a fashion choice. IT was kind of weird... Should I have told him he looked silly? I didn't wanna make him feel bad..."

Kero hmphed. "It's a cheap knock off of the key of clow. It's... troubling that he can do it, but..." He glanced to Sakura. His back was to her. "It's nothing we should be concerned with." Sakura couldn't see that he looked very concerned. Sakura smile .

"See? It's okay. Ummm... they aren't math, are they? I'm doing math better with all the help I've been getting but... I'm still not very good."
Haruna Kurosawa 2018-04-22 17:30:14 90562
Haruna Kurosawa pursed her lips. She nodded a bit. "Yeah okay that's more like Riventon to make a cheap knock off of /anyone/ and /anything/." she says softly.

She rubbed a hand up her face. "What's 'The Final Judgement'." she asks softly at Kero. "It's something I heard in a vision one of the cards made." she says softly. "When we we're dealing with Sakura's bad dreams a few months back." she asks softly. "and I'm thinking with Riventon acting like /that/... that somethings going on now." she says with a sigh. "Maybe related to that?" she asks.
Sakura Kinomoto 2018-04-22 17:38:45 90563
Kero stopped, cookie midway to his mouth. He then sighed, started to lower it... then shrugged, brought it up, stuffed his face. "Bad. I'm NOT supposed to tell you," he said, before swallowing. "At all. I could get in a LOT of trouble for this. But... Final judgment is the end. Where Sakura... Where Sakura has to prove that she's the true keeper of the clows."

He sighed again. "And... she can't fail. Sakura, you ARE the keeper of the clow. Were things normal, I'd say there was no chance of you losing, you're more than worthy. But..." He crossed his tiny arms. "Yui... won't be pleased with this. At all. And there's no telling how things will go down once the final cards are captured. It's imperative that we stop Riventon BEFORE then though. And get the cards back."
Haruna Kurosawa 2018-04-22 17:43:08 90564
Haruna Kurosawa eyes Sakura a moment, she nods a bit. And a smile. Because Haruna knows that Sakura is up to this! If she wasn't, well. It'd been someone else, right? That's how this magic stuff works, right?

Right! She thinks in her head. She purses her lips. "What happens if she fails? Something dark and evil gets released? Does the world explode like a bubble? Are we all doomed to wear silly hats or something?" she asks softly. "Because. 'The Final Judgement' sounds kinda ominous." she says.

"Who's Yui?" she asks. "And why does it matter if they're pleased or not?" she asks.

"Also. Yeah Riventon needs punched in the face. I mean. In general. Not just because of this." she says.
Sakura Kinomoto 2018-04-22 17:45:36 90565
Kero blinked and... "... Listen. If the... No. Sakura ISN'T going to fail. No need to worry about that. Cards get sealed up, that's all." He said. Though the troubled look on his face and concerned look he gave Sakura spoke of other things.

"Yui is the judge. The one Sakura has to show her worthiness. And there is no one more worthy. He can just be... stubborn. The fact the cards were stolen might... make him less willing to listen."
Haruna Kurosawa 2018-04-22 17:58:53 90566
Haruna Kurosawa. "Kero-kun?" she asks. "People can't fight for what they believe in. If they don't know what they're fighting for." she says softly, and that's all she leaves on that point as she sighs a bit.

"If Yui is a fair judge. Then she'll understand." she says frankly. She then nods a bit.

"I think I need to get you a... 'summon me if you're in trouble' button. Or something. Since calling me is too involved for a sudden attack like that. I'll... bug people about that." she thinks, first thinking of going to Ami for something like that.

"Because Riventon needs to be stopped." she says. "-but." she says. "You totally had him on the ropes all by yourself. I mean he was putting up a tough front, but if he wasn't wiped- he would had followed me for sure." she says. "When we ran away." she grins.
Sakura Kinomoto 2018-04-22 18:07:09 90567
Kero shook his head. "Him. And that's the issue. He was NEVER happy with us losing our master. Getting him to accept Sakura as his new master will not be easy."

Sakura flushed. "I'm sorry. I just... I... know I should have run. But he said he'd follow me home. And... I didn't want to risk my family. And I... really?" she asked, smiling. "I-I've spent a lot of time training! I even used both wind AND earth card together! And Twin right after! It was tiring, but I could still fight!"

Kero nodded. "It's true. Your magic is quite powerful now, Sakura. You've almost mastered the cards. And there's only a few left. We're almost there."
Haruna Kurosawa 2018-04-22 18:17:15 90568
Haruna Kurosawa nods. "He can fly. He'd had followed after like a black comet if he could." she says softly. "He didn't. It means he felt he probably couldn't win if he tried." she says. "Mainly because I came in fresh and feathered and he was run down~." she says.

"Though." she says. "I am concerned about the whole. Black raven feather motif." and Haruna /knows/ a raven feather when she sees one. "Not good boding. Maybe it's just a fashion choice. Maybe it's something else." she says.

"Also Hannah-chan wears the feather motif better." she says with a smirk.

She shoves a turnover into her mouth. More hot chocolate sipping.

"And remember. If you need a place 'to run to'. Here. Here you can. You know where the bunker is." she says softly. "Underneath here. And. I have a very very good insurance plan so no worries about damage." she says coyly.
Sakura Kinomoto 2018-04-22 18:42:23 90569
Sakura Kinomoto nodded. "Oh, she definitely wears it much better! He looked soooo silly," she said with a small giggle, smiling. "And you look way better, too!" she added quiuckly, then reached down and patted Kero on the head. "Maybe he just feels lonely and misses having all of his bird themed friends around?" she offered. I know if I had been friends with you and lost you, I'd be worried. And... You're right. I guess I always could come back... And I know I can hide if I have to. But..." she mumbled. "Can he get in here? I'd rather not be trapped with him... I think the only reason I did so well was because I could out maneuver him..."
Haruna Kurosawa 2018-04-22 18:50:12 90570
Haruna Kurosawa grins and leans forward. "As long as you get into the broom closet with the secret knock before he gets in through the front door and close it, he'll have no idea where you went. I paid The Contractors big bucks to make sure the bunker was super shielded against magic stuff." she says.

"That is, it should be safe." she says.

"But if you don't feel safe, we'll figure out another place. Maybe the ECFH. But I'd need to ask Mamoru before suggesting that." she says meekly. "Not my call there." she says.

"Still, you did good, Sakura-chan!" she says.
Sakura Kinomoto 2018-04-22 19:15:42 90572
Sakura Kinomoto flushed and nodded, a grin on her lips. "Thanks. It... it wasn't... easy. I wasn't sure I'd be okay... but... I really... I think all that practice we've done, all the help I've been getting from all of my friends, has really helped. Has made me... so much stronger. Made me able to stand on my own. At least for a little bit. And... I know I still have a while to go until I'm as strong as you. But I think I'm doing way better now and... and I mgiht... really be able to do this after all," she whispered, a hand moving up over her chest.

"I really feel sometimes that... Maybe Kero-chan is right. Maybe the cards chose me for a reason. Maybe... I am the best one for them."
