It is a beautiful day in Tokyo. The sun is shining, the birds are singing. The air has plenty of spring in it, warm enough in the bright sunshine to feel warm, even if the breeze still rather wants a jacket. It is, quite firmly, far too nice of a day to spend indoors, and the park is alive with people on bicycles, or walking dogs (and a couple of cats), or encouraging small children to burn off energy before bedtime. It's a smidge cool to just sit on a bench and drink coffee for hours, that will come soon enough, but it's plenty warm enough to sit on a bench and drink coffee for a little while. So that's exactly what Naru is doing. Take out coffee, watching the world go by. She has been quiet for a while, but breaks that silence with a random musing. "It feels like we're in a lovely stable spot that is going to get shattered in the next year or so."

    Kyouko had been standing near the bench. Not that sitting on a bench with her beloved wasn't a lovely way to pass the time she just.. has a little too much nervous energy to be doing it right now. So instead, she's on her feet, watching people walking by, kind of bouncing on her toes from time to time. Thinking, in her own way. And definitely enjoying the warm weather. When Naru speaks, she glances back to the girl sitting behind her, and shrugs her shoulders, with a lopsided grin. "They can try to shatter us all they want. Ain't gonna work. Of course, I'm not naive enough to think there isn't some horrible catastrophe bearing down on us, but.. bring it on. That's what I say."

"I'm not even thinking of horrible catastrophes." Naru points out as she sips her coffee thoughtfully. She's shockingly good at sitting still, for someone who is as active as she is. "Although we're overdue something to make property insurance rates in Tokyo skyrocket again." She quirks a half smile. "I'm just thinking about graduating, and deciding what to do then. The boys just.. seamlessly went to university it feels like. I dont know if our crew of high schoolers are going to be quite so obliging about not moving away, or doing other things, or whatever. I suppose we've an obligation to stay in Tokyo, really. Nowhere else is quite as active."
Kyouko Sakura 2019-02-28 18:43:34 103891
    Kyouko has never been good at sitting still, at all, and continue the trend, pacing back and forth in front of the bench a little bit. She quirks a brow as she glances at Naru. "I've an obligation to stay close to Mamoru. It's kind of my job. I assume you'd want to stay with me, although.." She grins a little bit. "Teleportation and the Palaces does kind of make community pretty easy, if you wanted to move somewhere else. As long as it's not like.. California or something." That'd be a little long-range for teleports.
Naru Osaka 2019-02-28 18:57:06 103892
"Well, at this exact second.. I have no plans to go anywhere." Naru shakes her head a little at the mention of going to California. "There's just a lot of buzz about post graduation, and worrying about university and all fo that, and I had moments of realizing that I have no actual /plans/." She quirks a smile. "Palaces really does make it easier, I'm not sure Endy would agree about teleportation making it easier."
Kyouko Sakura 2019-02-28 18:59:20 103893
    "Well, not to sound smug," Kyouko says, sounding exactly that, "But you have a girlfriend with a stable, sizable income from her permenant bodyguarding job that means you don't really have to worry about what you're going to do post-graduation." SHe grins. "I mean.. I totally understand not wanting to rely on someone else, wanting to do something useful and worthwhile on your own. Believe me, I do. But you can really do whatever you please. If you don't wanna go to University.. don't. Do your art instead. We're not gonna starve."
Naru Osaka 2019-02-28 19:14:44 103894
Naru's smile is a bit lopsided. "Mmm, I can be a pampered housewife to lay about watching daytime television and eating bonbons?" She laughs and then shakes her head a little. "I'm good in school. I feel like I'm letting expectations down and all that. Mmm. Japanese guilt. I am pretty sure it's in the water or something." She leans over to set her empty coffee cup on the ground. "Full time art sounds.. glorious and terrifying."
Kyouko Sakura 2019-02-28 19:16:56 103895
    "You can if you want to be, but I think we both know you wouldn't be happy doing that. But I thought you might like being able to art all day without anyone telling you that you have to stop and go do something else." Kyouko says, with a grin, and a shrug. "But like I said.. s'up to you. I'm certainly not going to tell you what to do." She snorts at the comment about Japanese guilt. "Well, you certainly produce enough of it when you only do it part-time.. you'd have to get your own studio or something, just so we don't run out of space to store it all."
Naru Osaka 2019-02-28 19:22:57 103896
"Daytime television is only good for when you're home too sick to day anything but whine for soup and cough drops." Naru points out with a laugh. "I'd be miserable in less than a week, although bonbons hold appeal." She gestures a little. "Why do you think I leave most of it at my mother's? We'd never manage to have any room for all three of us in the apartment if it was all there." She hunhs softly. "I should work up the nerve to talk to galleries about a show. Although I'd need to curate it carefully so that no one got possessed or anything."
Kyouko Sakura 2019-02-28 19:28:23 103897
    "Fair point." Kyouko doesn't watch much TV anyway. Growing up without any, and then being homeless, she really just never.. got into the whole TV thing. Probably a rarity among Japanese teenagers. She makes a wry face. "People getting possessed would rather put a damper on any art show, it's true. Though I guess you could always pass it off as some form of performance art.."

"Probably get me amazing reviews too, although possibly not precisely for the right reasons." Naru stretches her legs out, crossing them at the ankle and leaning back on the bench to watch Kyouko wander. "I should not aspire to displaying magical art just to get crazy reviews. That would be irresponsible."
Kyouko Sakura 2019-02-28 19:43:14 103899
    "That depends." Kyouko points out. "If you're displaying it to magical people, they might recognize your magical talents as well as your artistic ones." She grins. "In general though, you are probably right. No sense tricking the mundanes.. that seems rather to defeat the purpose anyway. Best just to avoid possessions, I suppose."
Naru Osaka 2019-02-28 20:33:56 103900
"Two exhibits.. one for magical types and one for mundanes. Also very tempting." Naru hunhs softly. "Not all of my magical work is creepy and evil and full of negative energy." She leaves off the 'just most of it' addition that probably both of them are thinking. "I almost dont want to graduate, just avoid having to come up with what to do next. That's even less realistic."
