Sakura Kinomoto was sitting on a roof, staring out over the city, a look of... well. Melancholie on her face. She felt so... just...

Why didn't he love her? Why didn't he want her as his girl friend? Was she too short? She looked at the cards. "I could make myself taller..."

But no. He did love her. He even said so. Like a brother. But she HAD a brother. She didn't want another. She'd wanted a... b... b-boy... boy... f-friend...

Just the thought made her cheeks go all red and made her cup them with her face, giving a squeaky little kya!

But still, it wasn't meant to be. And she had to focus on the cards. Transforming more of them. Maybe she should transform some now, even if she didn't have a task for them... KEro said that was a bit dangerous, though.

Lacrima sighed a little as she grumbled under her breath. She hated having to go out for lunch every day. Sometimes she just wanted to bring something from home. But nooooo. Everytime she tries, it turns evil or something. So thusly, Lacrima was about to enter a ramen shop at the lower floor of a building when her eyes traced to a reflection in the window. Was that... a figure of a girl on the roof opposite. She turned around and-- yes. Yes it was. A very familiar girl.

She narrowed her eyes and chose to move to the alley instead and---

Lacrima lept up from the the side of the building and landed on her feet behind Sakura. She wasn't trying to be super silent-- in her fancy dress. She frowned a little hard.

"Sakura Kinomoto." she says bluntly. "What are you doing. Are you following me now?" she asked a little pointedly. She didn't hear all that about boyfriends. Maybe thankfully, maybe not!

....What advice would she give anyways?
Sakura Kinomoto 2019-05-27 00:30:09 105400
Sakura Kinomoto blinked and then... glanced back. She gave a sigh and shook her head. "No. Sorry. I didn't mean to bother you, Lacrima-san. Are you doing okay?" she asked, giving a weak smile, before turning back and looking out over the city. "And... no. I just wanted to be alone for a little bit, that's all," she said gently. "Tomoyo-chan had some new outfits for me and they were really, really pretty. She's so amazingly talented, I don't know why she always wants me to model them for her, though. But... after an afternoon of that I just... wanted to be alone." She kicked her legs out a bit.

After being TOLD she was so awesome, she really didn't feel like it. If she was... how could Yukito-kun turn down her feelings like that?

"Are you Takashi-sama's little sister?" she asked, glancing over again.
Lacrima 2019-05-27 00:34:40 105401
Lacrima eyes Sakura. Why is she talking to her? And not scared? She is listening as she says. "Tomoyo. You mean the paparazi that's always following you around?" she asks. "And saying things like---" she uses a mock high pitched voice. "-- Sakura you're so adorable when you breathe and talk and exist!" she then looses the high pitched voice. "I dunno. Maybe she likes you." she shrugs.

When she asks if she's Takashi's little sister though she sputters. "What, no." she says. "I mean. I like him. And I care about him a lot. But like..." she shrugs. "No. Just no." she says a little uncomfortably.
Sakura Kinomoto 2019-05-27 00:42:07 105402
Sakura Kinomoto blinked a few times, then giggled. "Of course she likes me. She's my best friend in the whole world!" she said with a chuckle. "And yeah, she can be a bit intense sometimes. I don't know why she always finds me to be so interesting, though. She's really, really amazing, too! She makes all of those outfits by hand, you know? She's so incredibly talented!"

"Oh? Really? I just thought you two were family," she said before hopping up onto the roof and turning to face her. She had... bags under her eyes and looked kind of tired. "Are... we going to have to fight? Cause... I honestly don't want to fight you. You seem really nice and sweet, and I wish we could be friends... But I understand if we can't. I can't give the cards to Takashi-sama and I know he means a lot to you so... it's okay if you want to attack me again," she said with that friendly smile.
Lacrima 2019-05-27 00:48:25 105403
Lacrima blinks. "No.. I mean---- you know what nevermind." she says as she pinches the bridge of her nose, refusing to explain what she meant by 'likes you'. She thought it was clear. Maybe Sakura doesn't think in terms like that. She shakes her head.

"No.. I have a 'brother by birth' and an adopted brother. My brother by birth is a jerk with a sword named St. George-- Ryo Okana. Stay away. He'll try to kill you. My adopted brother is Alexis Raskoph. He's much nicer." she says flatly.

"....Takashi-sama is someone I just care a lot about. Which is why I don't want your cards. I just want 'The Dark'." she says angrily as she stamps forward one steps as she squeezes her hands.

"But I don't wanna hurt you, too." she finally says flatly. "....Which is why I shoved you that day. Instead of trying to.. blast you. Or something. I shouldn't shove you here. You might fall off the dumb edge." she says frustrated.
Sakura Kinomoto 2019-05-27 00:56:40 105404
Sakura Kinomoto looked confused at her comment on 'liking'. After all, Tomoyo and her were like sisters. So it didn't even mesh witrh her mind that they could be anything more... Nevermind that YUKITO LITERALLY JUST SAID HE WAS HER BROTHER! Oh my gosh she was Tomoyo's Yukito.

"Oh... OH! Alexis? I like him. He's really nice, he's helped me before! I wish I had known, I could have brought you some cookies, too! Next time we meet, okay?" ??? "Do you like sugar snaps?"

"Oh... But I can't give you the Dark, either. If I did, well.. I still need to transform it. And even when I do transform it, I can't. I have to keep them all together, and safe. I can't separate them from their friends. And Takashi isn't supposed to have them, anyway."

She then glanced back and... "Well... I could activate the jump card, if you like? Then you can shove me off if it'll make you feel better?" she offered.
Lacrima 2019-05-27 19:19:26 105420
Lacrima ughs. "I don't want your cookies." she says flatly. She pinches the bridge of her nose a bit in frustration. Also, she totally bets she's Tomoyo's Yukito. Completely. But she isn't gonna go bothering strange fashion minded fashionistas with a camcorder that hasn't displayed any magical powers just to ask dumb questions like 'do you have feelings for this girl I really dislike?'.

"Yes, which is why I'm going to take it." she says flatly. When Sakura offered to cast a card and help her feel better, her expression sours even more. "This isn't to make me feel better." she says angrily.

With that!? Well she threw up her hand, which melted into black ichor before it threw itself forward in a weird manner as she attempted to grab onto Sakura a weird, awful black dark energy hand.
Sakura Kinomoto 2019-05-27 19:28:56 105421
Sakura Kinomoto looked kind of sad at that. She didn't want her cookies? But... They were very good cookies. She always worked really, really hard to make them the best she could. "Are... you sure? I mean, I could make chocolate chip? Or... Well. I'm not any good at oatmeal raison. Last time I did, Touya said they tasted like soggy oatmeal! He's so mean! Ugh..." she grumbled.

Her eyes widened when the other girl moved in to attack her. She lifted a hand and... stopped. The dark energy would hit her and she would let out a cry of shock when she was grabbed but... She didn't... Fight back. She didn't draw any of the cards. She just let out a soft whimper of pain, reaching up to grip the hand and giving another soft whimper, but shaking her head.

"I don't... want to fight you, Lacrima-kun..." she said, trying to pull off it. "I-I understand why you're upset but... I can't let you take any of the cards. And I can't let the Dark go. No matter what. I'm... I'm sorry. If... if this helps you though... I... I understand..." she said, her entire body shaking though from the darkness.
Lacrima 2019-05-27 19:54:51 105422
Lacrima UGHS loudly when the girl continues to offer cookies, while Sakura's own power isn't enough to remove the hand by herself... probably. Lacrima lets go voluntarily. "What is with you!" she says angrily. "When you're fought, you're supposed to fight back...!" she says.

She just sort of angrily stamps her foot. "You know what. Forget it. I'm not doing this today." she says as she folds her arms angrily in front of her and turns away from Sakura. "All I wanted was some dumb lunch that wasn't trying to kill me for a change." she says.

She pinches the bridge of her nose as she takes a long suffering sgh. "Oatmeal. No raisins." she says, bluntly. "Raisins are clearly a dark energy plot to make people confuse them with chocolate chips or something." she says with mass frustration.
Sakura Kinomoto 2019-05-27 20:03:31 105423
Sakura Kinomoto would cough a few times once she was released, her hand clutching where it had been. She smiled up at the girl with lightly wet eyes. "I... don't know. I just... don't want to fight you. I guess? People like you and... I know you don't like me. But... I'd still really like to get to know you and maybe be your friend someday. And... besides..."

"I don't think Takashi-sama has a lot of friends, sometimes. And... I know you're one of his best, at least. So... I know you must be really nice, too. And a really good person. And loyal, standing by him for so long," she said happily.

"And so I don't really want to fight you unless I absolutely have to. And I don't think you really want to fight me either, you know?" She then hummed and... "oh! Hold on! It's not much... but..." She reached into her back pack and pulled out a small lunch box. "Here!" she offered it to her...

Oh my gosh she had an actual cute little bento box. While it had been partially eaten, it was... it had little octopus sausages and... and little rice cakes in the shape of hearts and just... my gosh.

"Got it. Oatmeal!" she said with a nod. she could do it, this time! She was burning with determination!
Lacrima 2019-05-27 20:12:02 105424
Lacrima ughs as she raises her hands and shakes them. "No keep your lunch." she says with light frustration. "Takashi is related to the same family line you come from. He has as much of a right to those cards as you do." she says bluntly.

She sighs a bit. "Leave the cookies in my mailbox at my manor." she says. "If you don't know where it is. Ask someone like Kukai-kun." she says. "Or Alexis-niisan can take them for me." she says with a lamentable sigh as she clenches her hands.

"I'm leaving." she says. "You better hope you don't catch me in a bad mood next time." she says as she moves to leap off back into the alley she'd jumped up from. She's gonna leave. She's gonna leave before she changes her dumb mind.
Sakura Kinomoto 2019-05-27 20:17:40 105425
Sakura Kinomoto blinked a few times, and then watched the other girl go. She was silent for a long moment, before smiling. She'd sit on the edge of the roof, and then nibble the remains of her lunch.

Oh, she'd seen Lacrima fight. At least once, maybe more. She knew what the girl was capable of. She knew what she COULD do... And she knew she didn't really wanna hurt her. Lacrima was a good person. Sure, she was a bit rough and sometimes tried to act mean but... she wasn't a bad person.

Someone she would be happy to call her friend. She hoped she could do a good job on those cookies. She'd have her daddy help her! They'd be so good! Probably... she hoped.
