    Sailor Venus stands on top of a building. "OOOohhhhhh I'm a beautiful maiden princess in distress! Oh nooo! If only there was a brave brash knight to save me!? But he's gotta be strong and fast and also fresh from the fight! Ohhhh! I'm waiting til the end of the night for such a person...!" calls out Venus. It isn't so much that she's trying to summon help. She's trying to summon a very specific person. This could work. It could not. Lacrima managed to use a paper mache ball to summon her once. Surely isn't isn't nowhere even as dumb?

    She would hop rooftops over town trying this-- shooing off anyone that arrived with genuine concern that was not Ryo Okana or Saint George. "Oh no, an evil dragon thinks I look good with a ketchup tiara- me! A beautfiul elligble single princess!...." she calls out using her hands like a megaphone in the 'cupped over mouth' sense.

"Ohhh no, I'm not so pretty when I'm served medium rare to a dragoooooonnnnn!" she sings out.

Ryo Okana does not 'patrol'. Patrol is dumb. What glory is there to be had stammping his foot over a few shadowy dark bats or some plant youma. They completely below his challenge rating. He does not hear the first few attempts to summon him. He's in a too busy part of town when Minako tries that nearby.

It's when he gets into the quieter, purely residential part of the city at night that he hears a calling out. Someone is about to be eaten by a dragon!? And they're a SINGLE ELLIGIBLE PRINCESS!? Well. He doesn't care so much about that last part. He does. But not nearly as much as about wiping a dragon off the face of Earth.

Maybe it's the dragon he knows and hates the most? A transformed Ryo Okana- Saint George leaps up walls in an alleyway he arrives on top of the apartment building, sword drawn.

"HALT DRAGON!" he calls out. "UNH----" he stares at Venus. He stares at Venus with fires in his eye. Oh. Oh this is a dirty trick, is it?

"WHAT DO YOU WANT, WRETCH!?" he calls out to the orange one-time vigilante now Sailor Senshi.

Someone is coming! It's... whelp it's her target for tonight! A man in white silver armor with a red cross? This is Lacrima's brother? Maybe she was thinking more grape color would had been involved. Also Woooooaaaah! "Wow, rude!" calls Sailor Venus back. "I'm not a wrench! Do I look like a toolbox!?" she calls back. Yes she knows he meant 'wretch'. This is just another silly Venus mind game. "Hey so I hear you like a little murder with your dinner, what's that about, eh?" she asks.

    "Cuz---" she says. "Oh right."

    She clears her throat and takes her pose. "I'M THE SAILOR SENSHI OF LOVE AND BEAUTY, SAILOR VENUS! THROW DOWN YOUR WEAPONS AND REPENT!" she calls out- before she lowers her hands down in a -gun-like fashion. "I'm here to teach ya a little about the love thing." she says flatly. "Because really-- murder is the final option. Sign of a SUCKTACULAR hero when they go through all the options and just move right to the shooting the asshole in the facr routine." she insists very readily.

    "Also, heroes don't try to kill their sister at regular intervals. Just a hunch on that one." she says as if she was laying down some secret information for Ryo.

Saint George draws his spear. To his credit, he isn't immediatly launching himself into Venus. It's him up here. And her. One on one. He's cute. Her words aren't anything he's heard at least once from the heroic 'rabble' thus far. When she mentions his sister thought- he answers. "My sister is dead. But I'm going to assume you mean the thing wearing her like a skin." he says.

"That thing needs to be destroyed. It shambles around thinking it's her. The most brutal mercy I can give it, is to kill it." he says with a slightly seething tone.

"If you want to fight. Lets get this over with. I have places to be and you're not in danger and you don't seem to be clamoring for a date." he smiles smugly.

"Otherwise, you can cut this righteousness crap." he says more gravely. "Because so far you've all been wrong."

    Venus blinks a little, then narrows her eyes. "Woooooow. That confidence might actually be charming if it wasn't attached to the world's ultimate asshole." she says as she relaxes a little, crossing her arms in front of her. "Yeah. I'm here to let you know that you're a fair target now." she says flatly. "The only one that gave a shit about what happened to you, has been begging us all to not drive you into the dirt and forget about your existence and pave over the hole."

    "Your sister, by the way. Who despite being a little changed- and a little weirder now- still cares a whole lot about you-- for the record is that person." she says with distaste. "Anyways. Your recent actions means we're all withdrawing that promise to her." she says.

    "The only reason you haven't been hunted down and punched repeatedly every god damn day of your life right now was that as far as I'm concerned."

    "Because- we know where you live- Ryo Okana. Just like you know where some of us live- and not all of us are nice and kind and believe the best in everyone." she says with a smug smile.

    "I just wanted you to go home thinking about that tonight-- that's all." she says, leaning forward.

Saint George listens. He doesn't seem to care. "Her loss. I don't care about things wearing skins of loved ones." he says flatly. That's a party line that simply won't go away. It's when Venus starts making veild threats that he suddenly scowls and raises that spear and with a leap-----

Attempts to come down into Venus with it! Now he's upset. Now he's attacking. "Who do you think you are, threating me!? Some second rate witch!? At least the other one is smart enough to be scared of me." he says with a sneer.

"Do you think you're smart!?" he calls out. "You don't even have any backup." he says.

    Venus watches as Ryo leaps through the air. She quickly jumps backwards and into a quick wuxia flip away as she slides on the dirt. "OH pah-leze. You're like a single guy with a spear and magic helmet. You're basically Elmer Fudd in that one cartoon?" she asks.

    "Nah- I have things I gotta do. Like pick up my cat friend who's staying with your sister tonight? Like Sailor Venus trusts a cat with your sister? That's a big deal!"

    She tsks and places a hand to her lips and blows a kiss. "Anyways, kiss your life goodbye! I'm gonna be harassing you constantly~" she sings sweetly- before she leaps off the side of the building---

    And dissapears completely into the dark. Two can play that quick getaway game!

Saint George doesn't get a chance to respond when Venus leaps over the edge--- he makes a run to the edge and looks down to see she's gone. He frowns heavily at those words.

"I see there is no quarter to be given anywhere then." he says gravely. He'll return to where he is-- dropping the henshin... getting back home.

Not even a little bothered. Bring it on- he thinks. Come out of the woodwork. Stop hiding...

Almost as planned.
