    After the encounter with Ryo near Korma, Stahlritter had his Device send off a couple messages off to various people-- and eventually, that lead to Miho being directed to Lacrima's manor. "Be ready to provide healing," one particular message said then, at the very end.

    And so it is, then, that the tall Knight in dark armor with bared biceps lead Nakusu there - assumably just by leading her rather than actually carrying like Unmei suggested - and peering back at her every now and then through the fiery-orange visor just to make sure she's still following as he stomps up to the front doors.

    And with the large double doors pushed open, his booming voice calls out, "Joy!" as if though he's expecting for the magical girl to already be inside.
Nakusu Miki 2018-09-19 23:33:30 98011
Despite what Unmei thinks about hurt wrists and mobility she's able to walk. She aches from behind handled roughly all over and her wrist is starting to ache and burn again after Rashmi's light triage. It isn't broken, but it is heavily bruised and strained some, therefore, he other hand is spent grasping at her lower arm of the hurt wrist and trying to keep it steady.

It hurts when it moves with her right now.

Waiiit a minute. "Woah! Um. Isn't this. The haunted abanoned place?" it was a place she'd JUST mentioned to Lamya not to long ago as an example of a spooky mansion when she said she lived in one.

She maybe did not think it was the specific one she was thinking of! She doesn't hesitate entering, she just looks really really cautious though.

Huh. This doesn't look abanonded on the inside.
Miho Kagami 2018-09-19 23:37:18 98012
Just a moment later, a minty-green blur of light swoops down from behind them as Life Mahou Joy comes in for a landing. She slows down enough that it isn't a crash landing, and floats in after them slightly faster than a run. "Hey," she says. "C'mon, let's get inside so I can look at that." Looks like she's all business at the moment. "Fair warning, it always takes a minute or two for me to get the Life Blessing out for healing, I'm not sure why."
Alexis Raskoph 2018-09-19 23:48:00 98013
    "I would not call it abandoned," Stahlritter points out to Nakusu, in perfect deadpan (amplified though his voice might be with hte helmet). "Considering how many people live here. Including your dragon."

    "Not so sure about the haunted part though."

    With the sound of Joy descending behind them, he stops himself from stepping fully through the doors, to instead turn back to facing her, with his helmet dipping into a slight nod. "Good timing. Come on."

    And once both her and Nakusu are inside, he makes sure to close the doors behind them, and since he actually does know his way around in the manor, he leads them into what equates to a living room within. "You should sit down. The couch is comfy enough for treatment."
Nakusu Miki 2018-09-20 00:03:11 98014
Nakusu lets herself be ushered inside and she'll sit on the couch, trying to get comfortable. "Oh! Joy! Hello!" she says. She sighs. "It's okay. It's not an emergency, I don't think." she says. "It just hurts a whole, whole lot." she says with a pained tone. She looks to Stahlritter and gives him a dubious glance.

"I dunno if I handle 'haunted' well." she says. She looks around a little paranoid and then back to Miho.

"Met George. He grabbed me by the wrist. Then tried to run away with me in the non-romantic, unwanted way." she says wryly. "Sabra." she says. "By the way. Is the name of the 'Princess'. George knew it. Lamya didn't. She always just knew me as 'Princess'. Which sounded right. On both counts."

"So how does this work? Do you need to know where it hurts?" she asks. "He dropped me at some point. So I ache all over."
Miho Kagami 2018-09-20 00:16:04 98015
Life Mahou Joy lands and sits down on the couch next to Nakusu. "You can just call me Miho, both of you know my real name and so does ... pretty much everyone who knows me as 'Joy', actually," she says. She grimaces at the description of what Ryo did. "... You know what, that ..." She shakes her head. "Honestly, just ... grabbing you like that is viscerally creepy," she says softly.

She looks over Nakusu's arm. "Basically, the way it works is, I concentrate on you, and then there's glowy stuff and then you aren't hurt anymore," she says dryly. "It's not quite like video game healing. I just need to focus, in ways I don't have to do when I'm, like ... firing an attack, or bolstering one of Rashmi-chan's shields." She shrugs. "It shouldn't take very long in your case. I've healed far worse."
Alexis Raskoph 2018-09-20 00:24:23 98016
    "I punched him into the sky," grunts Stahlritter, as if though trying to provide some manner of assurance over eveyrthing that's happened.

    While the two girls settle by the couch, the tall Knight takes position by the wall near the door instead, with his partially bared thick arms crossing together over his armored chest, watching over the two from behind the cover of his helmet.

    "I did mean to speak to you and Lamya both," he says. "But I was hoping it would be under better circumstances."
Lamya 2018-09-20 00:26:21 98017
There's a sound of a door opening and then closing upstairs, another door, some rustling in the bathroom, and a flush of the toilet. Then a muzzy voice, like she had just been asleep for a little whie comes down from one of the upstairs hallways, "Is there somebody here?" Soon after, Lamya in comfy looking pajamas appears at the balcony. "Hello?" Then she sees who's on the couch, who's with who's on the couch and the telltale minty green healer.

"PRINCESS!" she shouts out, worry evident in her voice. Forgoing the stairs she just leaps the bannister, wings materializing on her back to break her fall as she rushes to her side. "Are you okay?" She looks up at Joy, "Is she okay? What happened?"
Nakusu Miki 2018-09-20 00:37:17 98018
Nakusu frowns. "I tried to get through to him. I don't think I can right now. Maybe later when the 'shock' wears off. Maybe his head will stop being a swirl of bad ideas." she says this like she has little hope of this actually helping or existing to begin with. "I mean my head was a swirl too when he said...."

'Princess!'. "Ack! Hi! Hello! Hi Lamya-chan!" she says with wide eyes suddenly as she winces as Miho examines her wrist. "I'm sure it just looks worse than it hurts." she says to Miho quickly. She looks to Lamya.

"I meet Saint George. He knew the name we we're missing. Then he tried to pick me up and run off with me when I was trying to go to pick up my book." she recounts for Lamya. "He was rough on my wrist and dropped me so my wrist hurts and I ache. I think I will be fine." she says. "But Miho's right. It was kind of creepy. I think he thought he was saving me from you guys. Which is somehow worse." she says.
Miho Kagami 2018-09-20 00:41:32 98019
Miho nods in approval to Stahlritter. "Sorry I wasn't able to get there right away," she says. "But I think at this point you can count me in for protecting Nakusu-san when I can. Gives me another reason to accept your offer to train --"

And then Lamya bursts into the scene. "That boy happened," she says. She still refuses to dignify Ryo with a name. "Don't worry, I'm healing her now, just gimme some quiet for a minute."

She holds her hands over Nakusu's arm. It's not panic-time, so it only takes about thirty seconds before a minty-green glow emanates from her hands, instantly easing her pain, and it's another thirty seconds before the glow fades. "There." She smiles faintly. "Now how're you doing?"
Lamya 2018-09-20 01:00:26 98020
Lamya growls in anger, her features becoming more reptilian as she clutches a hand. "Saint George," she mutters. "He's gone too far this time. Something needs to be done about him." Her voice is rough and has lost much of the softness that she might have had when she's fully human. A tail joins the wings and thrashes in agitation as she moves to sit beside the Princess.

"This house is heavily warded against intruders like him," she informs Nakusu. "You're welcome to stay here for the night."
Nakusu Miki 2018-09-20 01:12:48 98022
Nakusu doesn't show much reaction to Lamya getting more reptiallian and also a tail because she seems to expect this when one is a dragon masquerading as a human and she doens't mention she likes the look right now because it isn't important. Miho gets done with her work and she examines her wrist and gives it a little careful turn back and forth. "Oh. Hey. That's better!" she says with a smile.

"Doesn't burn anymore at least. Feels less like there's a tight muscle there." she looks at Miho a moment and seems to think on this a moment before suddenly going speechless a moment and looking from her hand to Miho and back again. She just felt something then. But it's hard for her to pin down the feeling. It's strange.

She looks to Lamya. "....I'm not sure if anything can be done." she says quietly. "He's very much like I remember him. But he also is... not." she says. "It's really hard for me to explain. You probably see it easier." she says quietly.

"...There isn't like a magic jail. For magic crime is there?" she asks as she looks to Miho. She knows the answer is no, for some reasons. She might be asking because it makes her feel better to.
Miho Kagami 2018-09-20 01:21:09 98023
Miho is slightly more surprised by Lamya's change, but not that surprised. She just nods to Nakusu. "Good!" she says. "... This is basically at least half the reason I decided to go through with becoming a magical girl, by the way. Healing people. I needed to learn to lie to my parents, of course, but, eh. Practically everyone with a family does." She blinks at Nakusu's sudden reaction to the healing. "Something up?" she says. "Any ... Sabra-memories popping up?"

She sighs and shakes her head at the other question. "Nope," she says. "I've ... only ever heard of people either changing their ways, or dying." She shrugs. "There's a lot of the first one, though. Gives me some hope, but ... well, I've only been a magical girl for less than two months, I don't pretend to be an expert on how to reach out to someone like that boy."
Lamya 2018-09-20 01:29:57 98024
Lamya blinks when Miho says the Princess' name. "Sabra!" That seems to snap her out of her growly rage, and like that she's pure human again in her PJs. "That was your name!" She blinks in surprise when learning about the length of Miho's tenure as a magical girl. "Only two months? And you managed to heal me? I am very impressed."
Nakusu Miki 2018-09-20 01:40:05 98025
Nakusu looks to Lamya softly. "Yes. George knew it. It's the first thing he called out to me. That didn't help me any, with the head.. swimming." she says quietly to Lamya. "At that moment." she looks over to Miho and head tilts. "Not a memory. A feeling. Of some sort. I'm not sure. It's confusing."

"Not sure if there's words for it." she says as she shakes her head. "nrg. it's why I always wrote things down. Speaking off I hope I can get my book back soon." she wilts a little. "I have SO much to write into it." she says with wide eyes. She looks towards Lamya and back to Miho.

"I'm'not really magical myself thou." she says.
Miho Kagami 2018-09-20 01:49:29 98026
Miho shrugs. "Well, in your case, Lamya-san, I got help from Asclepius-san, and even then we were both struggling until we managed to break through that boy's orders. I'd actually been using the Blessing for two months before I transformed for the first time." She looks at her hand. "Either way, though, the Life Blessing ... definitely knows what it's doing better than I do."

She nods to Nakusu. "Sounds like it'd be a good idea to, I dunno, get a backup notebook or something, just in case," she says, and smiles. "Really, I think it's interesting that you've actually written things down and tried to figure things out systematically. I've ... well, my own observational and figuring-things-out skills have definitely been helpful in the magical world, even before I knew I was magical." She flips her sky-blue hair. "It's a good skill to have, I think."
Lamya 2018-09-20 01:55:32 98027
Lamya nods slowly. "Don't worry. Rashmi has your book, so it's in good hands. We'll get it back to you." She tentatively reaches out and puts a reassuring hand on the girl's shoulder. "I think you're magical. I mean..." she blushes, "... that there has to be something in you, or else you wouldn't be able to see everything for what they are.

She gives Miho a nod. "Still. It took a tremendous amount of effort and skill to be able to break through the commands that Saint Goerge had given me. Do not sell yourself short."
Nakusu Miki 2018-09-20 02:11:01 98028
Nakusu Miki head tilts. "Comands... oh, right the.. collar and---" she shakes her head. She sighs. "I don't wanna keep multiple copies of those thoughts. Some are... private." she says as gently as she can. "I'm really bummed I even dropped the one." she says with a nervous smile.

She looks to Lamya and there is another blush. "I mean I can see these things but that doesn't mean anything I think except that I can?" she asks. "I still feel like I have no magic. I dunno why I think that. Because you think if I could see these things I'd assume I have SOMETHING about me but..."

"I dunno it's like... you have a wallet, but you know there's no money in it..." she says as she scrunches her nose. "The wallet is there but..." she shakes her head.
Miho Kagami 2018-09-20 02:19:03 98029
Miho hasn't noticed that she has a bit of a case of impostor syndrom (Lamya isn't the only person whose life she's saved who she hasn't properly registered their gratitude), but she slowly nods. "Well ... all right," she says softly. She just has to smile at Lamya's affection. Yeah, she can see the Miracle Romance happening already.

She nods. "Fair enough," she says. "And, I mean, just having an open mind is enough, probably. Or something. I'm ... not actually sure how that works, really. But if you can actually feel an absence of magic where there should be, that probably means more than ..." She grins. "... well ... more than me just jumping to conclusions about, uh ..."

She scoots away slightly, and in a burst of light, she dispels her henshin. "... my own magical-ness," she says, her voice back to being somewhat scratchy and fairly androgynous.
Lamya 2018-09-20 02:26:13 98030
Lamya scowls in thought and nods along with Miho. "Yes. The fact that you know that it's gone, means that you at least recognize that it was once there." She leans back in the couch now lost in thought, having scootched prehaps closer than what is appropriate to Nasuku.

"I wonder if we let Rashmi scan you while you pick up your book we can discover why that is missing? I would feel much better if you had the ability to defend yourself."
Nakusu Miki 2018-09-20 02:40:39 98031
Nakusu looks between the two of them and just smiles. "I have a feeling, even if I had magic, I wouldn't really be able to defend myself." she says softly. She shakes her head and sighs. "Well if she can learn anything about me, I'm really all for it at this point." she says softly.

She nods. "I'll stay here tonight, though... it's um..." she bites her lip. "Remember when I told you about the spooky manor all the kids spoke about? Well this it." she says with wide eyes. "It's not actually haunted. Right?" she asks.

"I mean magic is real ghosts might be right?" she asks softly. "....erm... right?" she asks looking between the two of them suddenly fast.
Miho Kagami 2018-09-20 02:50:34 98032
Miho nods, and smiles to Lamya. "I keep needing to get a scan from Rashmi-chan myself, but ... that was one of the reasons people gave me for transforming, too." She considers this. "First thing that comes to mind is, we could give her a Device, but ... eh. I still don't know all about that stuff, or where to get one easily."

She regards Nakusu for a moment, then says, "Well, if you're gonna stay overnight, you'll definitely want to call your parents first, just speaking from my own experiences there." She shrugs, getting to her feet. "Ghosts are real, but, uh, I don't know the specific details as that applies to this place ... right this minute. You'll want to ask Maki-san about that." She grins. "Seriously, though, this place is fine, it's just that a vampire and a dragon and a Jiaying live here."
Lamya 2018-09-20 02:57:34 98033
Lamya shakes her head. "Any malevolent spirit we might have had has long been chased off by the pumpkin," she says cryptically. "All that's left here is Norie, Jiaying, and myself, and the house is well warded against intruders." She thinks for a moment, "I believe we have a spare bedroom for you to use, and I am sure we have some spare clothes your size as well."
Nakusu Miki 2018-09-20 03:16:51 98034
Nakusu nods. "Yeah, I'll call my parents to let me know where I am and I'll poke about." she says softly. "If that's okay." then a pause.

"....Pumpkin?" another pause. "What's a Jiaying?"
