Rashmi Terios 2018-08-14 00:32:06 94426
The dinner rush hasn't quite started at the Korma Chameleon, and the local students have had their post-school snacks. Which means for the moment there's a bit of a lull, with a couple older regulars seated at the counter near the kitchen, and the waitstaff mostly cleaning tables and collecting dishes.

Among the workers is a familiar-looking bespectacled redhead, bearing a green apron embroidered with Korma-kun, the store's violently cute chameleon mascot, loading dishes into a bin with an air of tired contentment.
Unmei Tama 2018-08-14 00:47:14 94427
Unmei Tama walked into the building, her eyes lowered, her infinity university uniform(girl's, of course) on her. Seh had her bag folded over her lap and walked to the counter. "C-could... Could I have... a ummm... a green... curry... please? No rice. With vegetables... please..." she said softly.

All. Day. Everyone had been asking her if she was feeling sick. As everyone tried to identify what was wrong with her. Cause she just looked... Different. She didn't look right. Her chest was smaller(she explained it with wearing a sports bra.) and her curves were just... different. She'd tried to avoid detection... So of course everyone had been asking her all day.

She was miserable... She took a seat and sunk in it. Rashmi miiiight recognize her as that girl who'd fried her gem during the fight.
Sora Hisakata 2018-08-14 00:52:27 94428
Sora looks to be exhausted, and in need of something to fill her stomach. Thus, she files in behind Unmei and waits for her turn in line. She's wearing her school's gym uniform, and there's a volleyball sticking out of her school bag, but the bags under her eyes make it clear she isn't exhausted from exercise.
Rashmi Terios 2018-08-14 00:59:01 94429
"Go ahead and take a table," Rashmi chirps, not yet looking up from her work, "I'll be right out with some menus."

At that point she looks up, and her sunny smile begins to fade, taking in the pure misery on Unmei's familiar face, and the utter exhaustion on Sora's. "......Oh dear. Um. Okay go ahead and take that table over there," she says, gesturing toward a booth against one of the walls, "I'll be right out with some drinks for both of you. And you wanted a green curry with vegetables, no rice.... um. Um. .....I almost remember your name, it's on the tip of my tongue..."

Apparently knowing that she hasn't heard a name to place to a familiar face is something quite embarrassing for the redhead.
Unmei Tama 2018-08-14 01:15:42 94430
Unmei Tama blinked. "Un... Mei? Have... have we met?" she asked, cocking her head to the side. "I don't think we've... met before. Have we?" Did Rashmi de-henshin after that? She then blinked and turned to look to Soira. "O-oh... sorry... didn't ummm.... See you there..." she mumbled, keeping her eyes low and avoiding eye contact.

Shoot, did she know this girl? If she did, she couldn't put a name on it...
Sora Hisakata 2018-08-14 01:21:42 94431
"Hello, Terios-san. Glad to see you came out of that ordeal better than I did." Sora greets Rashmi, glancing towards Unmei uncertainly. She doesn't think Unmei is someone she knows, but she isn't certain. She tries to play and safe and just stick to talking to Rashmi, "Just give me something sweet, filling and cheap. Diet Coke for drink." She asks of Rashmi then glances towards the indicated booth, shrugs to herself and heads there.
Rashmi Terios 2018-08-14 01:25:23 94432
"You met both of us," Rashmi chuckles, "at the thing this last weekend? It was pretty crazy so I didn't get your name... Anyway go on ahead with Sora-chan, I'll be right back with your order. Also..." The redhead digs into the pocket of her apron, extracting a carefully folded but well-used flyer. "Show this to the cashier when you're ready to pay, by the way... All my friends get a discount first time they eat here."

And with that, Rashmi hefts the bin and starts to head back to the kitchen, then pauses. "...Oh by the way; did you want a Japanese-style curry, or Bengali?"
Unmei Tama 2018-08-14 01:34:22 94433
Unmei Tama blinked a few times. "Thing last... weekend? What did I..." And then her eyes went wide. "O-oh my gosh! I'm so sorry, are you that girl I, I'm so sorry I swear I didn't mean to, I tripped and, I'm sorry I didn't mean to grab your, I'm sorry!" she squeaked, her face scarlet as she hid it behind her hands.

"It it was an accident, I swear, I was absorbed in my book and I wasn't paying attention and I am so so so so so so sorry!" she squeaked. Oh gosh she couldn't believe THIS person was from that. She wanted to die, she was so ashamed.
Sora Hisakata 2018-08-14 01:37:22 94434
Sora pauses, turns around and reaches out to gently place a hand on Unmei's shoulder. "It's fine. It was hectic. Nobody expects you to have perfect recall, just relax and we can do proper introductions now if you want." Despite being audibly tired, she's trying to be social and kind. "I'm Sora Hisakata. Nice to meet you, Unmei-san."
Rashmi Terios 2018-08-14 01:41:13 94435
"Wait, wha...." *Completely* thrown by this Sudden Attack of the Nerves, Rashmi actually stands dumbfounded for a moment, then her eyes widen in realization. "Oh! One sec." And with that, she disappears into the kitchen, coming out on the tail end of Sora's introduction, bearing a tray holding a large glass of what is presumably Diet Coke, and another filled with a faintly pink smoothie-like liquid that unaccountably smells of roses.

"....Unmei-san! That was it," she says, setting out the drinks. "And I don't know what you're talking about, I meant the, um.... thing that happened yesterday? Sora-chan was doing the tornado and stuff, and I was the one who embarrassed myself at the end of it...?"
Unmei Tama 2018-08-14 01:43:28 94436
Unmei Tama blinked a few times and lowered her hands. "W-wait. What? Torn--"

And then she went even redder. "O-oh. You were there for... that. That's... mildly less embarrassing," she said feebly, giving a weak smile. "Actually a lot less embarrassing. Just, errr, forget that other thing I said. Please. Please forget it. For my sanity," she said with a timid smile.

"So how are you two feeling then, after... that? It was kinda intense for a while, huh?"
Sora Hisakata 2018-08-14 01:50:06 94437
"Targeted Memory Purge Systems Initiated, Commencing Memory Purge. Purging... Purging... Purging... Memory Purge Complete." Sora says in a droning monotone and a deadpan facial expression, just looking at the others to get a sense of their response to that. "I'm exhausted, I'd spent a lot of energy and ended up getting beat up a little rougher than I expected, but someone helped patch me up."
Rashmi Terios 2018-08-14 01:58:16 94438
"Forgotten," Rashmi chirps, grinning. But her grin slowly fades away, as she thinks back to yesterday's lunacy. "....Honestly I've never been more terrified in my entire life, and that includes when I was trying not to get sucked into an interdimensional vortex that would either have killed me on the spot or trapped me forever into an alien magic hellscape."

Shuddering, Rashmi shakes her head, letting out a breath. "I was freaking out for like ten minutes to Mamo-kun's ghost when I found out what was going on in the first place..... Anyway I'll be right back, and d'you mind if I join you for dinner? I haven't eaten since breakfast." ....Apparently she doesn't really so much need an answer, however, as she bops back into the kitchen again.
Unmei Tama 2018-08-14 02:08:14 94439
Unmei Tama nodded. "Oh, um, sure. I didn't..." Aaaaand she was gone. She chuckled. "She's in a rush a lot, huh? And... Yeah. that was scary. I really... I thought I had gotten a lot stronger. I thought... well. I hadn't really had any trouble with youma thanks to Kyoko, Kun and Mako helping me train. But... that was a whole other level. I gave everything I had and the best I could do was dent it..." she mumbled.

"Moon and the others are just... incredible... all of you are..." she mumbled.
Sora Hisakata 2018-08-14 02:12:24 94440
"They've been doing this for years, and I cheat." Sora tries to reassure Unmei as she gets to her seat, "Rome wasn't built in a day. Just keep working at it and you'll get there. None of us could do this alone." She sits down and leans back, trying to and failing to stifle a massive yawn. "Always tiring."
Rashmi Terios 2018-08-14 02:21:42 94441
And now as Rashmi bursts out of the kitchen, she bears a fairly heavily-loaded tray balanced in one hand; ah, the server's Deep Magic of Balance. Setting out a plate of deep orange-gold chicken and yams in a creamy sauce that almost smells like a spice market in front of Sora, she turns and gives Unmei an encouraging smile. "What's up?" she asks, pushing a bowl of steaming green Japanese-style sweet curry in front of Unmei... followed by a second, smaller bowl filled with a sweet-spicy paste of some sort, topped with sesame and mustard seed. "Fried banana stem," she explains, setting down the last four plates. Two are set in front of her, and the other pushed into the middle of the table and clearly meant to share; fried samosas of varying filling -- "The green ones," she says, "are vegetarian." -- and a small pile of what almost look like Twinkies, but are pink and smell vaguely of roses and honey. "That's chom chom," Rashmi says, sliding in next to Sora. "It's like cottage cheese kneaded until it almost turns into dough, then cooked in flavored syrup. Papi likes to use rosewater for the high school girls."
Unmei Tama 2018-08-14 02:38:49 94442
Unmei Tama nodded. "Yeah. I've done it for a year now, though..." she mumbled. "Can't believe I fried my stone, though. I feel like an idiot... At least Mamo fixed my hand. That would have sucked..." she muttered.
% TRhen... Food. And oh my gosh. That food. She just started.

'Is this going to be the return of Gluttony?' Pin asked in her head.

'It better not!' Win said back.

"O-oh my gosh it looks good but it's not that g-- Wait! Is it back?!" She gripped some of her hair and pulled it forward and... still white and bleached. She sighed and hmphed. "Pin, Win, you two suck. You got my hopes up." The two apologized, not that the others could hear.

'No, but it's free food. You should eat a lot. You know you want to.'

"It's not free!" she hissed.

'Come ooooon. You just fought with these girls. Would they really charge you after that?"

"I swear I will flush you again! Don't think I won't! No one would even blame me!" she snapped. And then turned scarlet as.... she realized the others could only hear her side of the conversation. "S-sorry. My mascots kind of... suck... sometimes..." she mumbled, keeping her eyes lowered. She glanced down at her chest, where her gem was resting under her top. She wished being fully girl. Hormones were nice but... She was perfect then.
Sora Hisakata 2018-08-14 02:42:37 94443
Sora begins to eat her meal, glancing sideways at Unmei's shenanigans but not saying anything. After finishing about half her plate and not touching any of the shared stuff she suppresses another yawn. "That was good, Terios-san." She still doesn't comment on anything Unmei is saying other than a half-mumbled, "'s fine. Figured it was magic stuff." Another yawn, and then she closes her eyes and just kind of begins to slump over.
Rashmi Terios 2018-08-14 02:51:06 94444
The one-sided conversation gives Rashmi a bit of pause, but as Unmei explains, her confusion melts into a gentle smile. "It's okay," she says. "Sometimes it's worse when other people can hear them. You should see my friend Koji-kun arguing with his Device, sometimes Tyrfing knows people can hear him and uses it. Anyway... I'd ask what's wrong, but, you look like you've heard that way too many times..."

She blinks, as Sora slumps in her seat. "....Aaaaand that happened, wow. She really was exhausted. ...Anyway the point is, you're only getting the check for your order; the rest is on me, Unmei-san."
Lacrima 2018-08-14 02:56:42 94445
Lacrima ended up sleeping in the middle of D-point on Ariel, woke up. Saw her phone was asking to connect to an 'Eclipse Network'... here? She thought. She explored. She found things. She wrote a letter, then she spent the rest of the day curled back up on her unicorn until Ariel actually got up and had to go home.

It was probably adorable.

Regardless, Lacrima is in... 'better' spirits then she was the past week. Ryo is still heavy on mind- but she looks less worried. Less like she's about to snap.

She comes up from behind Unmei-- not realizing who is there at first, as she blinks. "Are you. Talking to your... things.. pins?" she asks, as she appears at the side of the table. She eyes Sora. She frowns. She must be tired still from the fight. She looks back to Unmei. "Are you... okay?" she asks. She means. From the fight. But it could be construed about her 'talking to herself' too maybe.

She bows at Rashmi. "Hello Rashmi-chan." she says before she smiles lightly. Just lightly.

Ryo is still stealing most of the smile she'd managed to earn with Ari's help. "Are you okay, too?" she asks softly.
Unmei Tama 2018-08-14 03:01:40 94446
Unmei Tama nodded and sighed. Then nodded, reaching out. "Right. Ummm..." And well... It was all so good looking. She couldn't NOT have a little. She licked her lips and... IT practically melted on her tongue. "Oh this is amazing... Practically melts on the tongue... Creamy bliss..." she mumbled softly, closing her eyes. "Oh by the stars..." she mumbled.

And then she looked up. And saw lacrima. And choked.

She started hacking, coughing, before lunging for the water and drinking it, clearing her throat, before having a coughing fit. No, was it--

Oh gosh it was Lacrima. She couldn't... She just... Not right now. She couldn't COPE with this right now. It had been a tough day, she was already down on her self and... And she asked *that* question. Are you *okay*?

"No, I'm not okay, I... I gotta go." And then she just kind of pushed past Lacrima. "S-sorry. I... I just... I'm sorry and I... I need to go, I--" And then managed to turn, fall over a pair of chairs, quickly disentangle herself from them(eternally thankful these skirts weren't THAT short) and then flee the scene. Except the didn't push the door right the first time, and kind of slammed into it, before running off.

... Smooth.
Rashmi Terios 2018-08-14 03:10:25 94447
.....Well that happened. Rashmi stares after Unmei's trail of destruction, completely puzzled and no little concerned. "....Um. ....Hi, Lacchan.... Have a seat, want to share dinner? It's already paid for, and all...."

Blinking, she shakes her head. "....Y'know, I think she was having a really really bad day, I wonder if there's a way I can get a care package to her."
Lacrima 2018-08-14 03:13:02 94448
Lacrima blinks as she watches as Unmei goes through a whole fit and a run off when she appears. This immediately causes her to wilt viciously, hands hanging and head going down, before she can say anything to the girl before she basically tumbles off.

"....you know." she says quietly. "...I've never actually attacked her." she says quietly. "She just thinks I'm spooky because I'm pale and a vampire." she says quietly.

"....that actually kind of hurts now that I have some of my emotional spectrum back. I don't really know how to fix because she's basically scared of me because I'm me." she says as she mutters.

A pause. "She didn't pay. Did she? I'll take care of it." she says quietly.

She sighs. "No. She's ALWAYS like that around me." she says quietly, as she slides in where Unmei was, and slightly pushes over her food.

"....Um. Sure I guess." she says quietly to sharing food.
Rashmi Terios 2018-08-14 03:18:35 94449
"...Yeah I can understand that," Rashmi says quietly, pushing some of her food around. "But I mean like, she was practically in tears from the moment she walked in the door, y'know? And don't worry about fixing it; just leave that to me, Lacchan. If I can crack Kokoro's shell, I can help this."

Spoken with the certainty of the inveterate do-gooder she is. Yyyyyup.
Lacrima 2018-08-14 03:31:59 94450
Lacrima sighs. "No one else could really do it, but okay." she says with a mutter as she sighs. "I even... when she moved into her new place, I brought this dumb picture over, which was one my dad had, of this place in America called Oklahoma that he brought back with him when he moved to Japan, and it always made me feel at home and I figure it would help her but all she did was stammer and shiver a lot and I bet she probably burned it because she thought it was cursed or something." she says as she sighs.

She rubs a hand through her face and hair. Hey, what's on the table anyways for food? She looks!

Regardless, she still starts eating.

Food is good.

"I dunno if. You read a note I left in the ECFH." she says. "But there was Eclipse equipment at that place." she says. "In disarrays. Data storages missing." she says. "-and there's at least enough to evidence to suggest it might not actually be Takashi that left it there." she says. "Mind you. Not completely out of the picture. BUT I really hope there isn't some secret second player here." she says.
Rashmi Terios 2018-08-14 03:37:26 94451
"I'm sure she didn't," Rashmi says gently. "She seems like a girl with way too much on her mind, but I know I'm not going to know for sure until I talk to her for more than a few minutes."

On the table is.... Rather a lot, even as Rashmi nudges a bowl of Japanese-style green vegetarian curry closer to her. However there are samosas, and fried spiced mashed banana-stems, and honey-drizzled rose chom chom, and rose lassi....

"I hadn't seen it, but.... yikes, now I'm worried too. But, d'you think Mirai was fiddling with it herself? I mean if she had some of Agera-san's Linker Core as part of her makeup, and given everything else shoved in there, she has to have had some idea how to use it, even if it was just by watching Agera-san and figuring it out the hard way?"
Lacrima 2018-08-14 04:00:48 94452
Lacrima shakes her head. "The main problem, is that I can account for every piece of equipment in UMBRA right now, going back about two years." she says. "Everything has been inventoried. Nothing is missing, or was replaced with a weird cardboard duplicate." she says. "-and no one's pulled that specific equipment out in quite a while." she says.

"It's mainly the evidence I have that it might not be Takashi-sama that used that equipment." she says.

"Right. Inventory is one of my tasks at UMBRA. That is. cataloguing equipment, the supply closet, and such." she says. "What's sad is..."

"I did see Takashi pull a bunch of other equipment about the same time Earth appeared on the sheets." she says. "But none of what was at D-point in disarray." she says.

"Anyways. I've moved it to my manor's basement. Mainly because Eclipse equipment is a Class 1 Dark Energy hazard if it's damaged like that." she says. "Er. Right. Eclipse... classifications... you don't know that. Class 1 is basically minor. Nothing to worry about persay to your normal magical person. Will affect non-magical peoples easier in the form of bad feelings, out of control emotions-- no observed mutations-- effects will go away when they're removed from the area." she says.

"But I also didn't want that kind of thing hanging around D-point for obvious reasons." she says.

"I figure if someone cares enough about it, they'll try to come and take it. And if they don't, I... erm..."

"....What I'm going to tell you. Is between you and me, Rashmi-chan." she says quietly.

"I'm working on making a small lab in my basement anyways." she says. "Because honestly? If Takashi-sama messes up this bad again? I think I'm going to quit." she admits softly. "I...I can't... keep defending him. Over this. All it does is make people think I'm terrible already when I help him with things." she sulks.

"--but that's never personal... like. Robbing a bank or messing with thugs. This /was/ very personal." she says quietly.
Rashmi Terios 2018-08-14 04:07:53 94453
Rashmi's eyes flick toward the rest of the room, and she leans over her food. "Okay," she says quietly. "I won't tell anyone, I promise. Just... Well you know better than I do really, so I'll not insult you. So... between that and Alex-kun's mom, this is starting to get seriously worrying. I mean... The Yakuza having those pod things, and now this...? Be careful, all right Lacchan? Not about the research, just... This is a new kind of weird and we don't know why. That's scary, because Eclipse, Alex-kun's mom, all the Youma armies... we can work with those. This?"

Shaking her head, she leans back, sipping a bright yellow chai-like drink. "...I don't like this at all, Lacchan."
Lacrima 2018-08-14 04:25:34 94454
Lacrima frowns. "I need to speak to Alexis-niisan about possibly raiding one of his mother's places for equipment." she says. "I'm going to need at least two of those pod things and the special kind of hard disks Eclipse systems use." she says.

"The running joke is that the 'Available Space Remaining' status always says 'Enough'." she says wryly. "Basically infinite data storage. Won't work on other machines." she says.

She pauses. "No I don't need the pods for draining people or mind controlling them." she adds. "Rather, they're also specimen tubes and I'll need a place to keep Mister Squiggles if I end up leaving. He isn't exactly house trained." she admits sheepishly. "-and another for other specimen storage."

She head tilts and frowns. "Yes. That.... perturbed me. It means either another Eclipse Group is operating and there is corporate warfare going on--- which is really not that unusual in Eclipse." she says. "Or some ordinary thugs got their hands on Eclipse tech. ALSO not the first time that happened." she adds. "But... never in that large a quantity." she says.
Rashmi Terios 2018-08-14 04:30:37 94455
"I'd never assume you were going to use the pods for that," Rashmi murmurs, smiling gently. "And I remember how much Mister Squiggles meant to you."

Blowing out a breath, Rashmi nods. "Okay. So... From here on out, Nico makes an extra copy of any scans he makes that aren't, y'know, personal for someone, for you. If you're making your own lab, we'll probably need your insights anyway, and it's just smart to share the information around."
Lacrima 2018-08-14 04:54:14 94456
Lacrima nods. "I agree." she says softly. "I won't really be able to do a lot with a small lab like that. But I can run scans and data through it." she says. "--and make the crystal tech I've been working on, though in much smaller batches." she admits.

"-I'd need to kill the network on it too. Else it's an open Network to the rest of Eclipse too. That's easy enough." she says.

She shifts. "Mister Squiggles thinks I'm it's mother you know." she says. "I tried to send it back to be with others of it's kind but it just kind of keeps coming back to me." she says. "I think I imprinted on him in a way that he has to stick with me now... like... how sometimes when a wild animal needs to be fostered but now they can't go back to the wild because they dunno how to do the things they're supposed to." she says.

She shifts. "I'd be working alone though at that point if I do leave Riventon-sama." she says softly. "Virtue probably doesn't need a horrible vampire working for it. The Pact is out of the question for very obvious reasons." she says.
Rashmi Terios 2018-08-14 04:57:01 94457
"Poor guy," Rashmi says of Mister Squiggles. "But it's obvious you care about him, so at least he's happy, right?"

Rashmi taps her fingers on her cup. "Souma-kun's running Virtue now, Lacchan," Rashmi notes. "Like, Sky Jack. He and I butt heads a lot of the time when it comes to how to handle stuff, but... If it came to it, and Virtue was something you wanted to do? I'd vouch for you, Lacchan. Whether that helps or not... I will, no questions."
Lacrima 2018-08-14 05:18:14 94458
Lacrima shifts uncomfortably. "Look...Rashmi-chan. I need to hurt people to drain energy, and stop myself from being a horrible youma thing." she says quietly. "I don't want to, but I need' to. And that's antithetical to Virtue's party line." she says gently.

"It's better if maybe I just do freelance or something for help." she says. She shifts.

"Oh. Right."

"Takashi-sama took his
totally planned in advance and not at all in response to the problem being handled so people can concentrate on him'' vacation." she says with a sigh.

"I can probably contact him if I need to. But I dunno where he is. And I'm not summoning him for face punching." she says quietly.

"He only has so many vacation days anyways." she says softly. "He'll be back." she asides.
Rashmi Terios 2018-08-14 05:37:44 94459
At this, Rashmi shakes her head, sighing. "I understand... but even still." Regarding Taka, Rashmi has to stifle a smile. "I wouldn't ask you to do that anyway, Lacchan. But I'll spread the word if it hasn't gotten around yet, just to make sure. I'm..... sort of done being super mad at him now, but I really really really really want to have a long talk with him, just hoping I can thump some kind of anti-collateral-damage procedure in his head, y'know?"
Lacrima 2018-08-14 05:43:29 94460
Lacrima makes a face. "This is the guy that kidnapped Sailor Jupiter, replaced Sailor Jupiter with a copy, then almost got punched really hard by Jupiter when she single handedly exploded out of a containment tube in the UMBRA labs and she WRECKED EVERYTHING SHE CAME ACROSS on her way out." she says.

"---then decided doing something again, but somehow worse was the best idea ever in the history of bad ideas." she says as she sighs.

"I'm banking on him making a copy then replacing the copy with another copy. Nullheartception...dun dun." she says deadpan.

"Basically, Ami-chan couldn't and he actually gives some sort of damn about her and what she thinks, and you're basically that indignant device mage he wants your device from, probably." she says flatly.

"I mean still try. Maybe you can say something to actually make him pause a think for a second." she says dryly.

"If you do so, I'll buy you a bottle of sake." she says.
Rashmi Terios 2018-08-14 06:11:27 94461
"Yeah, I know it's a long shot," Rashmi chuckles. "But like you say; maybe it'll do some good. I gotta try anyway, y'know? But make it chocolates, instead; I'm not even old enough to drink yet."
Lacrima 2018-08-14 06:20:22 94462
Lacrima scoffs. "Like that's stopped anyone before." she says. "But it's your choice." she says. "I mean. I can't get drunk. And I have a wine cellar with expensive wines that we're there. So I've been kind of doing the vampire wineglass thing." she says.

She's eaten enough between talking as she gently removes a debit card from.... well basically thin air. "Here." she says. "That's for Unmei's meal at least." she says quietly.

"...Meh. I still feel really bad about that." she says.

"I didn't come I wouldn't had ruined her night." she says with a sigh.

"I should. Go soon anyways. I'm going to talk to Mamoru and see if he won't let me poke around that place, D-point." she says.

"I mean. When he's back in his body and able to cope with things again." she says. "But I wanna figure out how to ask because I know it seems really ominous for me to ask that." she says.
Rashmi Terios 2018-08-14 06:28:00 94463
"I think her day was ruined long, long before you walked through the door, Lacchan," Rashmi says, reaching out to pat the vampire's hand, briefly. But she does take the card, nodding, and trots on up to the cashier, producing the ticket and the card and nodding toward the girl in the fancy dress. Once the meal is paid for, she returns. "Yeah that's probably gonna take some figuring out... Maybe promise to give a copy of what you find out to Ami-senpai, either yourself or through me if that'll help?"

Lacrima nods. "Maybe. It's not like I'm trying to steal anything." she says. "Just..." she shifts. "Unhealthy curiosity is very much a dark energy trait. But at the same time it's important to reign it in because that's how you get your Frankenstein and Aliens and all that." she mutters.

She takes the card and she makes to move to pocket it, despite her fancy dress not having them-- yet the card goes somewhere.

"Maybe if I say you'll come with me to watch me and look for yourself?" she asks. "I mean if I had a chaperone it might help." she offers.

"Regardless. I should go now." she sighs as she gently moves to leave. "Still. If Unmei comes back later, please tell her I apologize anyways...?" she asks.

Then she's off!
