Ryo Okana doesn't know that the witch he met last, many months ago, is attached to this curry shop. If he knew, he wouldn't had even walked through the door. He is hungry, this is why one walks into a shop. He's dressed in his school uniform, Verone Academy, as he walks in and scouts around.

That tune makes his brow twitch. Ugh. Still. He walks up to the counter. He then boggles at the large menu of dishes that he isn't familiar with and needs to take a step back as he runs his hands through his blonde hair a moment. He'll need a moment to decide what he wants.

He stands off to the side a moment looking thoughtful. He's trying his best to pretend yesterday didn't happen. It's working well.

Korma Chameleon has something of a reputation around school aged kids for getting very high quality curry on a budget. That's why half the clientele at this time of day are highschoolers taking a break from their rigarous class schedule to chow down on some cheap grub. One of these people is an odd looking girl, looking to be no more than twelve or thirteen, sitting by herself at a table. What's particularly striking about her are the red reptilian eyes and green hair that nobody else really seems to notice. There's also a fuzzy aura to her. Maybe an enchantment. Perhaps that's why she's not gaining the kind of attention she deserves.

Lamya is busy with a steaming plate of curry. A girl her age shouldn't be able to devour the sheer amount of food that it looks like she ordered but she seems to be putting a rather decent dent into it with no signs of slowing down. It's only by happenstance that she manages to look up and spy Ryo at the door, and she freezes.

Red eyes narrow. There's something familiar about him that she can't quite place. Something about him that makes her instinctively want to get up and bite him. She doesn't, knowing that kind of behavior is frowned upon, especially in the Chamelion. Besides, she gets the feeling that her collar wouldn't let her do that kind of thing anyway. She reaches up and touches the plain black collar that encircles her throat thoughtfully, when she realizes why this guy looks so familiar.

It's Lacrima's brother. The urge to bite him intensifies.

Ryo Okana probably is familiar for more than one reason- he has the reincarnated looks of Saint George for one- but the main reason Lamya seems to pick up on is that he is Lacrima's brother. He finally settles on what he reads as 'Butter Chicken'. That's easy enough, yes?

He'll step back to wait for this to be prepared, not sitting any yet. Until he feels eyes upon him.

Maybe he picked them out on a casual scan of the room with his eyes as he finds himself looking at Lamya. Does he know this girl?

He can't remember. But something...

It causes him to twitch unconciously on some level. He takes a step towards her as he crosses his arms across his chest.

"You're staring at me. What?" he asks down at the girl. "Never seen a handsome boy before?~" he asks with a cockbrow for a moment. He's currently being cocky. That's a small girl. He's an older boy. Surely there's no danger here at all. Right?

Then why is his sunconcious still twitching? He ignores it readily for the moment.

Red eyes narrow further. "You're La... Norie-chan's brother," she states. There's a hint of distaste in her voice as if she's suddenly shoved an entire lemon into her mouth. "I should bi.. punch you where you stand." A pause. "But I won't. Because that would be bad."

She shovels a spoonful of curry into her mouth, the smell of which is tantalizingly delicious and clearly spicy enough to make innocent bystander's eyes water. There's something else about this guy, but she can't place her finger on it. Something about the way that he talks. Something about the way that he holds himself, so sure of himself to the point of overconfidence. Then it hits her.

She bolts up standing, pointing an accusing finger at the boy, "You...." she accuses, voice filled with malice. She would recognize him anywhere. The knight that nearly killed her. Sure, this boy is a good ten years younger and Japanese instead of Greek, but she would recognize that man anywere. "You have much to answer for."

She steps forward, her features growing more animalistic, while seeming to gain in height and age as well. It all looks like she might go on the offensive but something stops her, a hand trailing up to the circle of black leather around her throat, a clawed finger touching it lightly. "But not here, and not now."
Ryo Okana 2018-07-19 18:40:44 92751
Ryo Okana states bluntly. "Was her brother. Norie is dead.". It's the mantra he's been repeating. She is. "Anythi-- someone purporting to be her is something else. Avoid it." he says directly. That is some really spicy curry that girl is eating though. It's filling his nasal cavity with agitation. He manages to sneeze.

This is the moment that Lamya chooses to get up and point at him?...

"W..what the hell are you talking about?" he says. "I didn't do anything wrong." he says. "I came in here for..."

Wait, is that girl changing some? He doesn't get what's going on. He scowls. "What the hell are you!?" he calls out. This is probably drawing looks from anyone else in the establishment. "I don't know what you think I did, but I'm telling the damn truth when I say my sister's dead!"
Dragon Lamya 2018-07-19 18:55:23 92752
The crowd doesn't seem to notice Lamya changing... perhaps its that shimmering aura that's protecting her, but they certainly notice Ryo raising his voice, and Lamya notices them noticing. She clenches her fists to calm herself, closing her eyes and taking deep breaths before sitting back down.

She runs a hand through her hair, smoothing it out. It had poofed out a little, much like a cat's hackles would have been raised, and by the time her hand is done with the motion she's back to being the normal (well, "normal") thirteen year old girl.

"You don't remember," she says, her tone all civil now. "Perhaps that's for the best. It has been two thousand years after all." She primly eats another spoonful of curry. "I think it's best if you get your meal to go."
Ryo Okana 2018-07-19 19:21:02 92753
Ryo Okana makes a face. "Two thousand yea...." he just shakes his head. "What the hell are you still talking about!?" he says. "I don't know what's going on here, but I'm sick of... things wearing my sister's skin and witches and things." he says. Oh. His orders up.

He composes himself and grabs his food. He tries to fegin as much politeness and apology for the outburst as he returns....

Right to Lamya's table where he places his butter chicken down in the seat opposite her and sits down. Why?

Mostly definace when she said he should take his food to go. Mostly because he's getting sick of this 'magic' thing and knowing nothing about it.
Dragon Lamya 2018-07-19 19:28:20 92754
Lamya's eyes track Ryo's every move up to the point to where he plops down right across the table from her. The aura of malice eminating from the girl is almost as palpable as the spicy aroma of her curry.

"I have no interest in eating with my mortal enemy," the girl says tersely.
Ryo Okana 2018-07-19 19:36:18 92755
Ryo Okana almost wants to flip the table. This is both frustration at his current life predicament, and some feeling he can't explain.

"I." he says tersely. "Have." deep breath. "No idea." another deep breath. "Who. You. Are." he says to Lamya. "I have never met you, in my entire life." he says.

But yet something feels familiar. Right? He doesn't know what's going on at all right now. "I'm sixteen. Not two thousand years old." he says, through grated teeth, trying to be as 'quiet' as he can got the resturants sake. But barely keeping his cool.
Dragon Lamya 2018-07-19 19:56:53 92756
Lamya considers the boy across the table for a good long while before answering. "Yes. Of course." She takes another bite of her curry, washing it down with a sip of her water. "Perhaps that's for the best."

Strange thoughts are coming to her. Things like "compassion" or "empathy." While the boy may be a jerk for how he's treated her best friend, that doesn't mean he should be punished for being a knight he doesn't remember. Give him a chance to be himself, she decides.

"I still don't like you," she announces. "For how you're treating your sister."
Ryo Okana 2018-07-19 20:10:57 92757
Ryo Okana was about to start eating when that statement has him slam his hands to the table. "I'm sick of that." he says. "Stop being coy!" he says. He's getting ready to perhaps actually flip the table, but he stops short of moving his hands to do that. He takes a deep breath.

"I've already told you. My sister is dead. Stop rubbing that in my face." he says angrily. "The thing claiming to be her is something wearing her skin." he says angrily. "-you'll see when it turns around and eats you." he says.

"You all know I'm right but you're afraid to admit it." he says more tersely. Is the table shaking from the pressure of his hands down on it? Yes it is.
Dragon Lamya 2018-07-19 20:29:55 92758
"Eats me?" Lamya echoes, sounding rather amused at Ryo's anger. "I'd like to see her try." She pokes at her curry and scowls. "No. The thing claiming to be your sister is your sister, but you are too dense to see."

She sighs, and drops her spoon on the table. "I've seem to have lost my apetite." She stands up and primy smooths out her skirt. "Enjoy your butter chicken," she says as her parting words. "It is really quite good." She goes to pay her bill, but a thought occurs to her. Something she can do to mess with the boy. When the waitress comes to clean up after Lamya she mentions to Ryo that his meal has already been paid for.

"The Dragon Lamya sends her regards," the waitress says. "I don't know what that means, but she told me to make sure I told you that, so I did."
Ryo Okana 2018-07-19 20:34:31 92759
When Ryo hears 'The Dragon Lamya sends her regards' he makes a slight expression. "Uh. Yeah. Sure. Can I get this to go please?" he says.

....Why the hell is that familiar and why does it ''upset' him so much.

He looks down at his hands. One of his nails is broken from digging into the table so hard suddenly. He'll leave as soon as he can. He doesn't think he likes it here anymore for the moment.
