This evening, Rune flops on a living room couch; it beats being in bed all the time, and she has been gradually pushing herself over the last few days regardless. Walk here, transform there... thanks to a mix of a drive to get better, and extensive help from others, she's doing pretty well for someone who came inches away from being killed mere days ago.

With her current exercises done, she reaches up to remove her tiara. It disappears in a flash of silver light, and she slumps into a seated position. "Still can't believe what happened..." Possibly talking to herself, possibly speaking to those nearby.
Hinote Kagari 2015-11-10 04:16:06 14522
Hinote Kagari has arrived! He has pizza boxes. two of them! (Look, we're not all eating an ENTIRE pizza, right!? Pizza is best shared anyways until you're murdering people for the last slice.)

Hinote sighs and slumps back onto the ground in front of the couch as he leans his head back. "You're doing a lot better. We were worried about you a lot. I kinda. Um...."

"I think I kinda wiped everything within a block radius around the apartment the past couple nights of anything nasty because I got mad." he grumbles.

"Sorry about that. The yelling and all that. What was that girl trying to do anyways!?" he huffs.

"OH. Right. Yeah. Pizza. I got us Pizza!" he says pushing the boxes over on the counter table. "Pepperoni and Sausage~" he sings out.
Gaofele Doiru 2015-11-10 04:18:40 14524
Gaofele Doiru sits nearby on the floor, idly petting Mistpaw. "I'm just glad that they didn't try to ambush you after the initial attack," he remarks, fighting back a yawn. After the ambush and the subsequent pursuit, he spent most of the following night standing guard against possible attacks. He's gotten more sleep since then, but it'll still take a few days before his sleep patterns have fully recovered.

He looks up towards the pizza, but doesn't immediately stand up. For one, still tired; for another, lap full of affectionate cat. "They seem to have a vendetta against magical girls," Gao remarks. "At least, their leader hates magical girls, and the other two are willing to help her with her goals."
Runealy Waldia 2015-11-10 04:23:05 14527
"Worried is one word for it. Scared out of my mind is what I'm going with, past tense." Rune comments. "Still kind of rattled, but... think I'm settled down for the most part. It's just that's the second time anyone has directly, intentionally tried to kill me, and this time I have no idea why they wou--" She blinks several times as Gao chimes in with some details. "Their 'leader'? When did you find this out? Where... how?"

Now she has lots of questions and curiosities, ones she's relatively calm about even as she smiles over to Mistpaw, then turns serious: "Sounds like they're not /just/ after me or you or any one of us, at that rate. Let's figure out what we know, and make some kind of plan?" Then she gives an intrigued look to what Hinote has. "Well... so long as you have something to show for 'mad', huh? What is that, though? 'Pizza'... think I've heard the word once here, no idea what it is. Is that what you've got in the boxes there?"
Hinote Kagari 2015-11-10 04:27:33 14528
Hinote Kagari says to Runealy. "Well. You're safe and I don't think anything is left to even attempt an attack at the moment directly anywhere in the area because I got super worried." he admits sheepishly.

"So you're safe at the moment and that's what I got to say about it." he says silently. "Oh---yeah. Pizza. It's like bread with a tangy sauce, cheese and toppings like meat." he says opening the box. It's cut into the usual '8 triangles'. He pulls off a slice and offers it to Runealy. It's warm. still hot, but not burn the roof of your mouth hot.

He peers at Gao. "Leader, eh?" he asks.
Gaofele Doiru 2015-11-10 04:44:43 14534
Gaofele Doiru gently moves Mistpaw out of his lap and stands up. The young cat rubs against his ankles as he heads over to get some pizza, marshalling his thoughts.

"Well..." he says, hesitating a moment, and then he recounts the tale of the two times he was at the tower beneath the giant white flower. Of the rainbow-eyed girl in white, and her two lieutenants, and the things they said. Of the hordes of Familiars and other monsters, and the Labyrinth-like nature of the tower and its surrounding area.

After explaining what he knows, Gao munches on a slice of pizza. "This /is/ pretty good," he says, feeling slightly better.
Runealy Waldia 2015-11-10 04:47:47 14535
"Half-way to safe," Rune insists, one finger tracing a shield pattern through the air. "You and everyone else did an amazing job with that much... thank you for being there so fast, I don't think I had any way out of that alone. As for the other half..." She traces a heart pattern.

"Working on it. This is a start." She waves that hand around the apartment. "You're a big start," a nod to Gao and Hino in turn, Mistpaw as well. "And if we can get all this taken care of, so that Tokyo is safe and we can put all our energy into getting ready to go home and make our home safe too... I think that'll go a really long way. That needs to be our top priority though, the weird flower thing going on here. Let's do what we can to help Earth out, so we don't have fifteen million Witches," that's probably a vast overstatement, "and thirty invading nations following us there."

Then she settles in to listen, and comes upon many surprises. "You were there /twice/?! Wow... if there's a third time, we should make sure we're together. That place sounds like a huge, dangerous mess!" The nature of the tower is... bizarre.

The other surprise comes when she tries the unusual food Hinote has provided. "Thanks," a response as she takes it in-hand from him. One bite... and she's visually pondering it. A second is needed, then her mouth decides, "You're right, Gaofele! Wow... that is something." Her eyes match this interest, and she takes to the meal with some visible enthusiasm.
Hinote Kagari 2015-11-10 04:55:57 14538
Hinote Kagari smiles. "This is simple enough I bet you could get away with something like it in Waldia. It's just bread, a sauce, cheese and toppings. And if you don't have cows I will be very upset." he insists in a teasingly tone. "No, I'm sure you guys gotta have...cows and milk." he scoffs. There's a few things he isn't sure about Waldian life---but if they have horses---they have cows. He's pretty sure of this for some reason when he really can't be.

He listens carefully. "I'll do my best." is all he can really say. He can't promise more than that. Well. He can promised screaming and also fire. But mostly- that is his best.

"Sounds like it's going to be trouble thou. How many monsters were there?" he asks raising a brow.
Gaofele Doiru 2015-11-10 05:08:47 14542
"For what it's worth, I've always been with a crowd of other magical folks when I've been there," Gao remarks. "In terms of major monsters, they seem to occasionally have a handful available. Nothing that individually can't be handled by a small group, but you don't want them to outnumber you."

He frowns slightly as he thinks about the other forces of the White Flower. "And more Familiars than I think I could count," he adds grimly. "Most Witches seem to have a limit to how many Familiars they have at a time, but they seem to be able to summon endless Familiars within the tower, and in several, seemingly unrelated varieties."
Runealy Waldia 2015-11-10 05:13:03 14544
"Your best, our best, will have to be enough. And yes, we have cows. I've seen art of Earth's, and ours are pretty close to identical. You'd probably have to get a 'nature person' like," a nod to Gaofele to indicate him, "in order to tell any real difference between them. So if you think we can take something like this back with us... that..."

Rune thinks on it, and allows a little smile. "...that's not like a cell phone. That's a baking idea. I bet we could do it."

This smile persists as Gaofele explains more about his experiences. "A crowd? That's good. That's good for a lot of reasons. Hopefully the third time, we're all there /with/ those crowds. Especially if it's 'endless', like you say. When we go, I'll be counting on your advice!"

A few more bites follow. "Mmm... by the Barrier, this is... where did you find this?" A look to Hinote. "Is this common food here on Earth? It's pretty amazing."
Hinote Kagari 2015-11-10 05:22:06 14545
Hinote Kagari says. "Yes, it is. It orginates in a european nation called 'Italy'. But it's all over. All countries have thier own version of it." he says. "It's baked, yes!" he says with a smile. "It's also really easy to make at home. Have you ever cooked before Runealy?" he looks to Gao. "Has she ever cooked before?" he asks teasingly. Probably not. Princess and all~ BUT. There's an oven in the apartment, afterall! And there isn't a servant here!----

And Guardian Knights are more like friends than servants.

He taps his chin. "I'll do it." he says. "I'm going to let Gao lead. I dunno what I'm going into there." he says.

He'll probably slam into something before Gao could say anything anyways.
Gaofele Doiru 2015-11-10 05:29:45 14547
Gaofele Doiru chuckles a bit at Hinote's teasing. "Well, /technically/ she has," he notes, recalling the first campout. "Still, we should probably follow your directions with it. Safer that way."

He nods to Hinote and Rune. "We should probably talk with some of the others who have gone up against the White Flower. The more of us we can organize to go up against them, the safer all of us will be."
Runealy Waldia 2015-11-10 05:31:37 14548
"As in the real Europe, not made-up-Europe we were going with, huh." Rune ponders this, and Hinote's question actually draws a serious answer. "Just twice. First time Back when I was a kid," she still is, but few people this age admit it. "I was like five or six, and yelled at a maid for not having my bed ready. Mom was there, and she 'demoted' me on the spot for a week. For the next seven days, I wasn't 'Princess.' Got to learn most of the jobs at the castle by doing them. She had someone make me some wood 'armor' and a stick so I could join the guards on patrols. I tried cooking. Cleaning. Did terrible at all of it, but... by the end, I apologized to the maid and made sure I stopped treating people like that."

Her voice goes breathless for a moment as she forces herself to finish this memory: "Mom 'reinstated' me after that."

She tries not to linger on this thought, reaching out for another pizza slice. "...This really is good stuff. Thanks for bringing it here. Second time, if you're wondering..." A nod over to Gaofele. "Did half-way okay that time. It was fun, we're going to do it again sometime once all of this is done." Then her thoughts return to the serious matters he raises. "Do it. Get us in touch, we'll talk to them, we'll team up, we'll do this right. They can come here or we can come to them, or whatever. You can give them my number and everything."
Hinote Kagari 2015-11-10 05:42:10 14549
Hinote Kagari taps his chin. "I see..." he says. He giggles a bit. "I have a hard time imagining you as that kind of Princess Rune. I mean. You hadn't acted that way the entire way you've been here. Heck. You slept on a pile of junk in a broken cooler here on Earth and didn't complain." he admits. "You might not know how to cook- but you've done a lot even people here wouldn't wanna do." he says softly. Nevermind he spent countless overnights with you guys there of course.

He smiles a little. "Right. Yeah. That. Let's do that." he says. He looks to Runealy. "I'm glad Tuxedo Kamen was there for us that night Rune. You looked really bad-- and I'm made of fire-but I ain't no phoenix." he says as he finally steals a pizza slice for himself. "Pizza also keeps well and can be cooked in small places. I bet you'd see people manage to street vendor Pizza in Waldia once they get the hang of it- if it catches on. It's hand held and can be made pretty cheap in varying 'sizes'. It's also not garbage food on a nutritional level--- bread. vegetable. dairy.. and then anything you put on top of it. Dried sausage... vegatables... some people like certain kinds of fruits on pizza."

He closes his eyes a bit and takes a deep breath. "That white flower is pretty creepy. I was wondering what that was about..."
Gaofele Doiru 2015-11-10 05:46:28 14550
Gaofele Doiru nods to the other two. "I'll work at getting in contact with some of the others, then," he agrees. "I have a good idea on a few places to start, including some people who undoubtedly know other people, but it'll undoubtedly take several days. In the meantime..."

He grins and snags another slice of pizza. "I think practicing making pizzas sounds good!"
Hinote Kagari 2015-11-10 05:54:26 14551
Hinote Kagari nods. "You know where to find me!..." he says. "...or call me.. or. Whatever. You know what, i'm probably just gonna sleep on the couch here tonight." he says with a goofy smile. He stands up and grabs the other pizza box, leaving the open one there. "I'll go put this one in the fridge- you guys can have some more in the morning. It's even good cold~" he says insistently.

"And for breakfast." he insists.
