Treat or Treat!

Naru and Ami both had similar bright ideas about leaving treats for the Senshi at school.

Halloween isn't much of a Thing in Japan. It doesn't have any traditional roots, but damnned westernization keeps invading, and therefore the 31st of October suddenly comes with decorations and silly. At least in some of the stores, and some bars and theme parks. There's no getting away from school uniforms, although there's probably going to be some amusing accessories in class today.

One girl has arrived early to school today, with black and orange ribbon on the ties in her hair as the concession to halloween dressing up. Naru is going around to the desks of all of the senshi in her class, tucking /something/ into each one.
Ami Mizuno 2018-10-31 15:11:59 99488
Arriving as early as usual--which is early!--Ami pauses in the doorway. "Naru-chan?" she asks curiously, eyes bright with curiosity. "What are you up to?" She steps in and looks around, curious. The classroom is as always, except for Naru's tucking whatever it is away in each desk.

Ami's in her school uniform, except for a pair of blue cat ears. Listen. Even Ami Mizuno can get in on the silliness once a year.
Naru Osaka 2018-10-31 15:14:41 99489
Naru startles, not having expected to get caught! She looks to the door and then relaxes with a giggle. "I love the ears!"

It's not much of a reply, but Naru hadn't gotten to Ami's desk yet and she reaches into the bag she's got, coming over to where Ami is. "I got inspired when I was shopping yesterday." She notes as she passes over a small little loot bag sized sack.

Within is candy, and other little silly things. On the order of kinderegg style toys, and temporary tattoos, and silly little treats. "Happy Halloween."
Ami Mizuno 2018-10-31 15:17:02 99490
Ami grins at Naru after peeking inside the bag. "Thanks! You too," she says, pulling out a similar little bag. She hands one to Naru, and then starts to move behind Naru, putting treats in the desks too. "I hope you don't mind. I think we're just on the same wavelength." She grins again, nodding and wrinkling her nose cutely at the redhead.
Naru Osaka 2018-10-31 15:20:41 99491
Naru laughs brightly as she accepts the little bag from Ami. "We are /totally/ on the same wavelength, that's awesome. I figured I'd get in trouble breaking into Verone, so I left Rei's at the shrine. I dont entirely know how to get Mina's to her, I'll try tracking her down after school. At least the boys were /super/ easy."
Ami Mizuno 2018-10-31 15:21:31 99492
Ami Mizuno grins and nods. "I can take Mina's if you want? I will see her later," she says. "Or you can come with me. And you can take Kyouko's?"
Naru Osaka 2018-10-31 15:25:30 99493
"If you're seeing her later, that would be awesome." Naru gets out another small bag to hand over. "I can totally take Kyouko's.. she's working later today, she's so totally not up yet, I'm certain. We were decorating the store yesterday, it looks super cute." She grins brightly. "And tomorrow? Half price candy."
Ami Mizuno 2018-10-31 15:27:39 99494
Ami grins and hands over Kyouko's bag. "That sounds neat. Ask her to hold aside some of that what do they call it. Candy corn? With the honey." She smiles brightly. Taking Mina's bag and tucking it next to the one for her, she then finishes putting the treat bags in the desks. "I wish we celebrated at school. It'd be neat to dress up more than just as a cat without a tail." Her eyes twinkle with mischief.
Naru Osaka 2018-10-31 16:00:32 99495
"Alas, better costumes have to wait until after school." Naru laments in sympathy. "There's a big thing at Disney, but I think you have to be dressed as one of their characters. I read about it online." She nods in agreement, tucking Kyouko's bag of candy into her satchel, so not to mix it up. "I'll text her and see if they have any at the conbenie. I dont remember seeing it, but she'll know for sure."
Ami Mizuno 2018-10-31 16:02:04 99496
"Thanks, Naru-chan." Ami smiles at the other girl with warmth, before looking around thoughtfully. "I almost don't want to be here, today. I would rather be out and doing something fun."

Who is this, and what did they do with the girl genius?

Ami frowns. "I've just been restless lately."
Naru Osaka 2018-10-31 16:09:13 99497
"Now that /is/ serious. When I'm more interested in being at school than you are." Naru points out with a little laugh and a shake of her head. Teasing though she might be, there's an edge of concern. "Any thoughts on why? Not enough world ending crises to keep you busy?"
Ami Mizuno 2018-10-31 16:14:35 99498
Ami shakes her head and shrugs. "It's..." She sighs and tugs at her bangs a little. "Takashi's not doing so hot. I need to see him. But I don't know.." She trails off. Either she doesn't know where he is or when she should go, or both. She sighs softly before looking at Naru.

"I know you aren't his biggest fan. I just... can't help it." She moves to the windows and looks out at the changing leaves. "But. It's Halloween. Let's make it happier, yeah? How's Kyouko-san?" She turns to smile at Naru then, but it's fragile.
Naru Osaka 2018-10-31 16:22:19 99499
"I think that Taka could be so much more than he lets himself be." Naru decides on after a moment. "I am sorry to hear he's not doing so well. I hope you guys manage to find some happy medium again."

Naru leans against a desk and smiles, an easy and casual thing. "Kyouko's fine. Enjoying decorating for Halloween, and the prospect of candy. There's a bit of a lull, and soon enough it'll make everyone nervous, but for the moment, its just relaxing."
Ami Mizuno 2018-10-31 16:23:29 99500
Giving a warmer smile, more self-assured, she nods to Naru. "Thanks, Naru-chan," she murmurs.

Then her eyes light up. "Yeah. That's what it is, exactly. The place is nice and quiet right now, but in about a week we'll all be too nervous for it to be relaxing."
Naru Osaka 2018-10-31 16:30:59 99501
"It feels more profound this time, but yeah.. the holiday is a distraction, but we'll be waiting for the other shoe to drop soon enough." Naru gives a little shrug. "The grand irony being, there might well be stupid going on, but because we're not in a constatn sense of danger personally, it feels super quiet."
Ami Mizuno 2018-10-31 16:32:12 99502
Ami nods with a more serious expression. "It's true." She turns back to the redhead. "I don't like it, but I'm always paranoid, a little. So..."
Naru Osaka 2018-10-31 16:35:05 99503
"I'm not sure it's still paranoia when they often really are out ot get us." Naru points out with a soft laugh. "It feems more like.. totally justified and valid threat assessments and rankings. Certainly Kunzite and I have kept each other appraised on what we've got on our respective watch lists for quite some time at this point." She gives a little shake of her head. "It's just been busy with boring, school and training, rather than new threats. Which is kinda nice, all in all."
Ami Mizuno 2018-10-31 16:37:03 99505
"Fair enough," Ami says, with a little laugh. But she looks troubled behind her mirth. She wrings her hands a little. "I should get started on studying. Otherwise I'll end up a worried mess," she admits quietly, looking at Naru evenly.
Naru Osaka 2018-10-31 16:45:17 99506
"I probably should too. Get my sketching in before class starts." Naru lifts her bag, holding the treats. "Thanks for the treats, Ami. It was super sweet."
