I Have A Unicorn And I'm Not Afraid To Use Her!

Lacrima tries to chase down her (blood) brother, Ryo, to talk about the fact he may be a reincarnated Warrior Saint. When he's less than unwilling to share anything, she threatens to sick her unicorn friend and/or Dream Samurai acquaintance on him to find out what she wants. This works. Mostly.

Ryo Okana is walking home from Verone Academy. It's Friday. No school for the next two days. He was about to meltdown between school and all this magic garbage that's suddenly hit a fever pitch for some reason the past few days.

It can drive a man beserk. Luckily, there is a cozy room he can lock himself in at home and not emerge for two days straight, wherein, he should feel a lot, lot better. Or maybe he'll call that cute boy's number he got today. Well. That's the theory of what may happen at least. He still has to make it home avoiding... witches. Dragons. Vampires. The fucking booegyman he guesses, he guesses that shit is real, too. Right? Why the heck not.

He walks along the sidewalk in the late afternoon. The sun has maybe just started it's setting cycle- though it's still high up. He'll make it home around dusk he figures.

Lacrima eyes Ryo from the nearby park she's passing. She is watching from behind a tree. She's also wearing a super fancy, antique period dress- so how much this is helping in the long run, she has no idea. Regardless, she waits for Ryo to pass then jogs out of the gate he passes and comes up behind him.

"Ryo..." she says softly. "I know you probably don't want to." she says.

"But we need to talk about something. Just talk. No one else. Not Alexis-nii... not Alexis. Or Rashmi. Or anyone." she says.

"Please...?" she asks more pleadingly, at the end.
Ryo Okana 2018-07-21 03:38:43 92830
Ryo had managed to get his mind off his deeper thoughts about what he percieves to be horrible things. That is until a voice creeps up behind him. He cringes-- body moving up a little and shoulders going down as he grits his teeth. "Go away." he says.

"I don't want to talk to you. I don't want to make peace with any of your thug friends. I don't want to talk to the mockery of my sister's former living existence." he says as he comes to a stop. "-and no. I'm not passing any messages to mom or dad." he finally ends on a sour note.

He'll quickly resume walking, hoping for some small grace of some sort of god that she'll get the point, and not follow him any futher.
Lacrima 2018-07-21 03:45:34 92831
Lacrima does just stand there for a moment. She sulks a moment. Ryo really isn't going to speak to her. She shifts a bit uncomfortably as she stands there. She could make him talk. Force him somewhere and sit him down. She's strong enough to. But. That's a bad idea. For lots of reasons right now, both present and past.

She consider things for a long moment. She's going to try to bluff him. If she's wrong. She's no better off than when she just tried now. If it works? She might just get what she wants.

"...I know you've been dreaming about being a knight of some sort and some sort of princess!" she says. She actually doesn't know this is true or not. But she's heard some other reincarnated folk talk about dreams. And then there's Ariel's friends that are... dream reincarnations? of some sort? So she's making a dumb bluff based on the small amount of information she has.
Ryo Okana 2018-07-21 03:50:44 92832
Ryo Okana does stop for a few seconds at that. She does...? How!? Though he tenses and continues moving. No it's a trick. It has to be. Or maybe she's the cause and she's trying to plant seeds of trust, he thinks. Just ignore the thing, he thinks.

So he continues walking. Getting futher away. Truth be told. Those dreams have been bothering him for the past year or so- and after meeting that girl the other day in the curry shop. He had the most vivid one yet.

"I said leave me alone!" he calls out again over his shoulder as he hurries his pace from a casual walk to something a little less fast than a power walk.

"Go... I dunno. Turn into a dumb bat and get in your idiot friends belfreys because they're all missing a few!" he calls out.
Lacrima 2018-07-21 03:54:19 92833
Dammit. Her bluff didn't work. Though she did see that momentary pause. That tells her that she may be right but Ryo still doesn't want to talk about it to her. "You know..." she says quietly, as she begins jogging after. "...I know a unicorn. That can get me into your dreams anyways." she says.

"So if you're not going to stop and talk to me, I'm just going to get a bucket of dream popcorn and I'm having her bring me over into your head." she calls out more angrily at him.

"OR maybe if I ask the Dream Samurai I know to bring me over on her Dream Horse I can do that, too. I'm sure she'd consider it if I told her why!" she calls out.

"OR MAYBE BOTH!" she calls out more angrily.
Ryo Okana 2018-07-21 03:59:48 92834
Ryo Okana needs to stop to take in all what was said to him. So. Her sister is claiming to know a unicorn and a dream samurai. And they can just get into his dreams. Like barge in? How does that work? It's making his head hurt just considering it.

He really wants to just continue onwards. He just does. But if this... thing... is telling the truth.

His brow practically twitches. Either he stops talks here. Or he has this thing invading his dreams with more friends of it.

He turns around and starts storming towards the vampire as he he crosses his arms. "You know what. This is stupid. But fine. Okay." he says.

"Yes. I have been having dreams. Strange ones. Yes, about being a knight, yes about a beautiful princess." he says angrily. "-and about killing a dragon and a cheering crowd... and hunting other things. Before and after." he says.

"For about a year. Even while you we're stilling living in our house pretending to still be my sister." he spits.

"Is that all you want to know? Good? Yes? Then I'm done. Bye bye!" he says as he waves mockingly and turns around and begins to storm off in the direction he was moving before.
Lacrima 2018-07-21 04:06:59 92835
Lacrima is taken aback when Ryo starts storming back towards her, then unleashes a tirade then quickly turns back in the other direction. She frowns. So. He has been dreaming of... being someone like St. George. At the very least. This makes her very uncomfortable, as she shifts again in place- awkwardly, wrapping her arms around her.

She can't use the name St. George when talking to Ryo now, that's for sure. Names have power. For all she knows saying the name is what causes some dumb transformation in Ryo.

"Look..." she says. "Lamya-chan.. my friend... thinks you're the knight that tried to kill her two thousand years ago or so." she says. "I don't think you're that knight. But I think you may be his reincarnation." she shifts. "I'm not really sure." she says. "Maybe it's just physically? But she says you act the same way too." she shifts. "Look... I'm just concerned. Could I get you to talk to any of my friends about this? They might be able to help. Or do something to make the dreams go away." or subdue this St. George.... aura? soul? Whatever.

"Please...?" she asks. "For me?..."
Ryo Okana 2018-07-21 04:09:49 92837
Ryo yells out. "No, go away and leave me alone. I told you what you wanted. Now .let. Me. Be. IN PEACE!" he stops dead as he yells that last part before he begins to actually jog away to the street corner and turns it. He's gonna double back through some damn yards. He's going to take the long way home.

He's not dealing with any more of this bullhockey. He's going home. And he's burying himself into his room.
Lacrima 2018-07-21 04:11:29 92838
Lacrima blinks and jogs down the way but when she gets to the corner.... he's gone? Ugh. He must had. Cut through a yard. Dammit. She sighs miserably.

"I need to talk to Kazuo I think." she says uncomfortably, as she slumps down onto a nearby bench. She smoothes out her dress and tugs at the hems nervously.

This is going to be another grease fire in her life, isn't it?
