It's some of the quieter hours in the Four Clover Mall. A lone guy who looks like he must be a young adult (late teens or older) is wandering around the mall, ruffling through his own white, blue streaked, hair. He looks rather like he's lost or would rather just not be here, yet here he is. The young man keeps passing by stores, looking at them curiously, but shaking his head and moving along to others, only to do the same again.

Nanoha Takamachi was also peeking into store windows. Looking at her allowance she's been saving for half a year, into windows. She's looking to get Fate a small, but heartfelt gift. Because soon..... she's gonna need to get a part time job in another year or so! That wouldn't be hard. She'd just work in her parent's bakery and her allowance would be paid by the hour aha!

Oppurtunity for overtime! Still. She is peeking into windows when she looks to the left and----

There's a teen looking into windows like she is. Or at least at stores. He seems...

Lost? Lost seems to be the term she goes with. She catches up to the guy and says. "Hey there! I'm Nanoha Takamachi, do you need help finding something?" she asks. "I don't work here... but you look like you're having some sorta trouble?" she asks.
Zafira 2019-06-28 04:35:55 105791
The guy blinks in confusion before peering toward Nanoha and her question. "Trouble," he wonders before shaking his head some, How to explain the situation? Especailly when he's not even great at talking? "I'm...trying to find uh...a hobby?" He seems confused on if hobby is even a good word for what he's looking for.
Nanoha Takamachi 2019-06-28 04:47:56 105792
Nanoha Takamachi. Clearly the girl Signum drained that filled many pages. Looks up at Zafira with a soft blink, and a then a smile. "I'm looking for a gift for um...." a pause. "My girlfriend!" she says. Smile still. It sometimes hits her sometimes, about Fate once in a while, as she head tilts.

"A Hobby? Well." she says. "What are you looking for? A hobby to do with others... like a sport? Or one to do alone like, constructing resin models or drawing?" she asks softly.

"What do... you like to do?" she asks quietly. "Usually. I mean. Do you have a particular thing you like to do at all?" she asks.
Zafira 2019-06-28 05:05:32 105793
Zafira tilts his head thoughtfully. Wait, it really IS her isn't it? Why does he keep seeming to have this sort of strange luck? He's trying to play it cool and not let on he recognize her since that worked before. " thinks I should learn more about myself," he murmurs hesitantly, "Martial arts...I like that..." The way he pauses and seems to struggle with words seems less like he's not able to speak the language and more like he'd just rather NOT be speaking. He's not coming off as snubbish or negative toward her, just VERY awkward. Talking to other people not being a strong suit is probably one of the most obvious things about him. "They want me to find more....besides food..."
Nanoha Takamachi 2019-06-28 05:14:47 105794
Nanoha Takamachi does not recognize Zafira as anyone but a teenager looking for a hobby. She keeps that small smile. "Martial Arts." she says. "Have you considered going to classes for one you don't know yet?" she asks. "You might consider similar things. Maybe fighting video games?" she asks. "That's competitive nowadays you know!" she says with wide eyes.

"But I can see how 'exercise' alone isn't just a hobby to some pepple..." she says quietly.

"Wait. Eating food. Or making food? Like. Cooking and baking?" she asks.
Zafira 2019-06-28 05:22:46 105795
"Eating..." Zafira answers, "...I went to the arcade once. ...noisy place." He crosses his arms before noting, "One of my sisters likes plush rabbits?" It might seem random, but it's meant to be the only suggestion he can think to make in turn to Nanoha looking for gifts for a 'girl friend'.
Nanoha Takamachi 2019-06-28 05:36:09 105796
"....your sisters likes ra--- OH! OH you're making suggestions... no... no." she says quietly. "Rabbits aren't really.. her thing." she says. "Wolves. Maybe... but... her dog might get jealous..." she taps her bottom lip. Yes even at a plush wolf. Arf. :I

She shakes her head. "Have you tried baking? Cooking?" she asks. "I mean then you get to eat after it, or share it with others." she says with wide eyes. "My parents own a bakery... I'm not terribly good at the baking thing thou." she says.

"I mean, passable! But.. not great." she shrugs softly. She head tilts.

"Have you tried building models?" she asks. "Lots of awesome giant robots and all that." she says.
Zafira 2019-06-28 05:47:00 105797
"...maybe I /should/ try other styles..." Zafira murmurs, "I have not tried cooking, I'm not sure I'm allowed to." He tilts his head again. "Giant robots? ...Those seem popular on tv...people must like them."
Nanoha Takamachi 2019-06-28 05:57:15 105798
Nanoha Takamachi says. "You should watch one! Just... 'THIS HAND OF MINE BURNS WITH AN AWESOMMMEEE POOOWWEERR!'"! she says making a not so tightly closed fist as she turns to the right. "Lots of awesome kinda.. stuff like that." she flusters as she blushes and turns back to Zafira.

"So-so yeah. Maybe try that? It could be intersting for you!" she smiles as she bounces on her heels. "OH! Maybe I should... yeah! I'll get Fate a model kit...!" she says with wide eyes.
Zafira 2019-06-28 06:01:50 105799
"A model that is not a wolf but has some sort of wolf connection," Zafira wonders. He seems to understand the idea of a dog being jealous. As for Nanoha's little burst of enthusiasm there, he just kind of watched it MOSTLY stocically...a brow might have risen. "I will try these giant robot shows..."
Nanoha Takamachi 2019-06-28 06:06:44 105800
Nanoha Takamachi nods enthusiastically! "It's like martial arts but with people piloting giant robots, it's great!" she says. She smiles some. "So try to learn some new styles.... Krav Maga? It's like a Russian martial art." she says softly. "I think...." she trails off. "And giant robot anime and the associated models." she says with a curt nod as she looks into the window of the nearby hobby shop. She'll need to pick a model soon.

"So you have a sister... do you have a big family?" she asks.
Zafira 2019-06-28 06:16:48 105801
Zafira says, "Not so big..." He hesitantly adds to that, however, "But it can be hard at times." Another pause before more hesitant admission, "I am the only male...Krav Maga...I will look into that.""
Nanoha Takamachi 2019-06-28 06:23:48 105802
Nanoha Takamachi smiles. "Well. If you.... wanna talk more about it um..." she digs into her purse and pulls out a business card for the Midori-Ya which she presents with a bow. "That's my parent's bakery. Where I live. Come on by sometimes!" she smiles.

"I should go buy the model and get home before my parents text me and wonder why I'm out later than usual." she says softly.

"Good luck!" she says with a bounce in her step! And she disappears into the model shop!
