Shinobu Kimura 2016-01-15 05:20:17 22759
Shinobu is elated. Someone is actually taking her on a date?! That nevr happened when she was living at home! Not only that he is cute! All of her worries are gone right now. Kyubey, Wishes, Contracts, and witches can all take a long walk off a short pier! Right now, The sound of an upbeat popsong is blaring in her dorm room and she is actually up dancing!
Minoke Sato 2016-01-15 05:21:13 22760
Minoke Sato rolls towards Infinity University in her wheelchair, glancing around. She sighs softly as she just sits ther, a folded coat on her lap. She then opens her phone and dials the number she got from you, and holds the phone up to her head.
Shinobu Kimura 2016-01-15 05:24:30 22761
Shinobu Kimura finally hears her phone ringing. Quickly she moves towards it, fumbles around and then answers it. "Konichiwa!" She says happily thinking, Thank heavens no one seen her dancing around. She smiles thoughtfully all to herself.
Minoke Sato 2016-01-15 05:25:06 22762
Minoke Sato smiles. "Hello, Shinobu-sempai. This is Minoke - you saved me when my chair fell over? I'm outside the dorms of Infinity with your coat but... don't know where to go."
Shinobu Kimura 2016-01-15 05:26:57 22763
Shinobu Kimura perks up! "OH! Right! Hello Minoke-chan! Room 470!" She states as she moves to go turn on the lights and get something out to munch on. SOme of this is left over pizza, served cold of course because Cold Pizza is made of win. Some of it is also Apple Fritters and Eclairs.
Minoke Sato 2016-01-15 05:27:34 22764
Minoke Sato nods as she rolls in and goes to the elevator. She enters and pushes '4', then rolls out and starts to look around, then follows along until she got there. It took her a few minutes then she knocks on the door.
Shinobu Kimura 2016-01-15 05:30:53 22765
"Come in!!" She calls out. No locks on the door anyway. As Minoke enters she would find a bo staff right beside the door. Its not some decoration or a prop. Shinobu gives a little wave. The rest of the apartment is pretty plain but given who lives there, its to be expected. "Please help yourself. The pizza is cold but I find cold pizza is yummy anyway."
Minoke Sato 2016-01-15 05:31:30 22766
Minoke Sato smiles. "Sure - no microwave?" she asks as she then asks, "Where would you ilke me to put your coat? I had it laundered and all cleaned up," she states as she nibbles on the cold pizza.
Shinobu Kimura 2016-01-15 05:33:16 22767
Shinobu Kimura smiles, "Set it on the couch. I did get a new one. Do you need a coat?" She asks all rapid fire. "I think there is one. I can't exactly use it but it should be there."
Minoke Sato 2016-01-15 05:37:44 22768
Minoke Sato shrugs, looking around. "It's... not where I can get to it so I'm ok. I... it is a nice coat but it's not mine - so it's the right thing to do to return it..."
Shinobu Kimura 2016-01-15 05:40:33 22769
Shinobu Kimura turns and faces the beam of light that is Minoke. "Keep the one I let you use. You need it more then I do. I went out and got a new one so you can keep it, No cost or anything. Its all yours. Funny thing, I ran into Usagichan on the way there. Goodness that girl is hyper but she is super sweet too. Have you met her?
Minoke Sato 2016-01-15 05:41:35 22770
Minoke Sato blinks. "Usagi?" she asks. "I think I heard of her. Wears odangos, always failing tests?" she asks. "Kinda of a running joke even though I go to a different school... sometimes we joke that when someone fails a test they got a grade U."
Shinobu Kimura 2016-01-15 05:44:45 22771
Shinobu Kimura blinks, "Umm... How would I know what she wears in her hair?" She laughs playfully. "She didn't mention her test scores but she does like to eat! And Shop! It was a fun time. A nice distraction honestly. I had a little run in with someone who is trying to get me to make a deal."
Minoke Sato 2016-01-15 05:47:42 22772
Minoke Sato blinks. "A deal?" she asks curiously. "But yeah - she wears her hair in odangos. Looks like she's wearnig two pork buns or something." she shrugs. "But yeah - I met a few people of late." Her best friend of late, of course, is Voretx but she can't talk about that right now.
Shinobu Kimura 2016-01-15 05:50:35 22773
Shinobu Kimura smiles, "Oh I think I met your hero! Hannah? She's... Chaotic. Lots of energy. I can see how she can be inspirational. Her girlfriend is actually helping me out a lot with dinners. It's hard for me to cook so she offered to help me out with dinners. She's really pretty good at cooking."
Minoke Sato 2016-01-15 05:54:14 22774
Minoke Sato nods. "I.... I'd love to meet her again... what's she like?" she asks softly. "And a little chaos is always a little fun."
Shinobu Kimura 2016-01-15 05:56:07 22775
Shinobu Kimura smiles a little, "Shes cool. A little hyper, Apparently loves to be active. She knocked me over at this one meeting we were at." She stops right there. Anymore and she could potentially make a big booboo.
Minoke Sato 2016-01-15 06:05:24 22776
Minoke Sato nods. "I see... well...." She smiles. "Thank you for the coat. My parents thought it looked good on me." She smiles. "I'll keep it and remember your gift fondly."
Shinobu Kimura 2016-01-15 06:09:50 22777
Shinobu Kimura smiles a little and nods, "You're most welcome. Glad I could help ya out." SHe smiles softly and moves over to take a seat. Idly she removes her sunglasses because she isn't going out for the rest of the evening. Her eyes have no colors. Just pure white.
Minoke Sato 2016-01-15 06:10:42 22778
Minoke Sato nods. "If I can ask - were you born blind, or did you become that way?" she asks softly. "If you don't want to talk about it, I'll understand."
Shinobu Kimura 2016-01-15 06:15:22 22779
Shinobu Kimura shrugs, "I wasn't born blind. About five years ago is when it happened." She thinks a few moments before continuing. "My father is a thief. My mom is a lawyer. My dad stole a chemical from someone and was planning on selling it back to the company. It was purple and in a jar. I was young and thought it was grape juice. I poured myself a glass. Went to talk to my dad. He was my hero. I went to take a sip of the stuff and he tipped the glass on me as a joke. It went into my eyes. I spat out what got in my mouth. That kept me from really getting hurt. My vision burned out and that was it. No more sight."
Minoke Sato 2016-01-15 06:16:21 22780
Minoke Sato blinks. "Oh no - how horrible..." she whispers. "What happened then?" she asks, shaking her head. "What a horrible accident..."
Shinobu Kimura 2016-01-15 06:18:18 22781
Shinobu Kimura laughs, "Well my dad isn't my hero anymore. I adapted. I learned to use my other senses. To use my cane. I can even fight without seeing if I need to. I don't like to but its pretty cool. I guess I got a sort of umm... ESP? It lets me pick up on people. And on magic."
Minoke Sato 2016-01-15 06:19:40 22782
Minoke Sato blinks as she tenses a bit, wondering if you can sense Vortex. "Yeah... at least you got SOMETHING..." She ponders, clicking her tongue. "I didn't start paralyzed, but it was just... I was doing an acrobatics performance on the trapeze... and apparently the gym was old - the mooring gave way and aI fell on my back. It didn't even hurt."
Shinobu Kimura 2016-01-15 06:26:05 22783
Shinobu Kimura winces. "That sucks I wish I could help..." She pauses, "And if YOU are there, That is not a contract." She states making sure that a certain furry alien doesn't get any crazy ideas. "At least I can offer pizza right?"
Minoke Sato 2016-01-15 06:29:57 22784
Minoke Sato blinks. "What isn't a contract? Who were you talking to?" she asks. "But pizza is wonderful - unless there's a contract involved..."
Shinobu Kimura 2016-01-15 06:32:32 22785
Shinobu Kimura blushes. "Umm... Yeah... I was saying that because I said I wish I could help you. Someone is wanting to make a contract with me. 1 wish for my life basically. "
Minoke Sato 2016-01-15 06:37:54 22786
Minoke Sato nods. "Yeah - I wish I could help you too...." she murmurs. "But... maybe I need to stop feeling mierable and figure out what I can do - maybe I could pick up sledge hockey or something."
Shinobu Kimura 2016-01-15 06:40:26 22787
Shinobu Kimura smiles, "There is also the special olympics. You could train and compete in the special olympics. That woujld definitely be something. I could get in touch with Hannah and maybe she could train you?"
Minoke Sato 2016-01-15 06:41:06 22788
Minoke Sato blushes. "Oh my God, that'd be so cool!" she squeals. "I have pretty good upper body strength..."
Shinobu Kimura 2016-01-15 06:43:35 22789
Shinobu Kimura smiles, "Well, Then I will have to get ahold of her. I bet she would be interested in doing that with you. It would definitely help you feel better about your situation." She stops and a smile crosses her lips. "Sorry, I'm really excited right now. I got a date for the first time ever.
Minoke Sato 2016-01-15 06:52:24 22790
Minoke Sato nods. "You go girl... what kind of guy is he? I mean - what does he sound like? Feel like?" she asks. She didn't say look like.
Shinobu Kimura 2016-01-15 06:53:41 22791
Shinobu Kimura smiles, "Well he sounds really hot. He's an actor. I felt his face and wow. He is cute! I can't wait I don't even know how I should dress to do this! I never got to go out before!"
Minoke Sato 2016-01-15 07:00:54 22792
Minoke Sato nods. "Can you show me your closet?" she asks. "I could help you pick something out, maybe?" she asks.
Shinobu Kimura 2016-01-15 07:04:57 22793
Shinobu Kimura sighs, "There isn't much in it. Right now I have a few school uniforms in there and a couple of simple dresses. Like what I am wearing. I got a better idea! Lets go shopping! Well not tonight but umm... this weekend?"
Minoke Sato 2016-01-15 07:06:12 22794
Minoke Sato nods. "Yeah - that sounds good," she muses. "... what's your favorite color? I know you can't see anymore, but you used to be able to..."
Shinobu Kimura 2016-01-15 07:08:40 22795
Shinobu Kimura smiles, "Viridian. I love the blend of blue and green. Its just a pretty color. My mom got me a dress in that color when I was younger. It used to compliment my hair and bring out my eye color. I used to have green eyes."
Minoke Sato 2016-01-15 07:12:05 22796
Minoke Sato nods. "Then I'll find you a viridian dress. Red's my favorite color. I'm a redhead." She tehn smiles softly. "But I'll stop talking about colors and stuff - hey, you said you were psychic? I could've sworn you looked rgiht at me a few times when you were righting my chair..."
Shinobu Kimura 2016-01-15 07:18:24 22797
Shinobu Kimura sighs, "its not a psychic thing... Extrasensory perception. Think of it like a form of magic. It allows me to see life energy and magic. For instance right now." She does look right at her. "I can see that you are a relatively good person by how bright your energy is. I can tell you are normal... at least at the moment. No magic coming from you. A pretty simple yellow pillar of light."
Minoke Sato 2016-01-15 07:20:27 22798
Minoke Sato nods. "Oh...." She then blinks. She touches the choker around her neck. "Right - no magic coming from me..." She then ponders, shifting her position slightly. "I..." She thinks. "Well..." She is floundering, wondering if she dareds tell you about Vortex.
Shinobu Kimura 2016-01-15 07:23:39 22799
"Hmmm, Though there is magic coming off of something on you. I can see that. Interesting accent." Shinobu smiles a little. "Well That would narrow things down for you. Either you are wearing something for luck or you can tap into that magic. You don't have to tell me."
Minoke Sato 2016-01-15 07:25:25 22800
Minoke Sato nods. "Yes. I have a magical artifact. I wasn't going to mention it... but... since you can see it anyways - I guess there's not much point in hiding it - I... don't have many friends and... would like to think you rank among them."
Shinobu Kimura 2016-01-15 07:27:08 22801
Shinobu Kimura nods, "That would make you a Magical girl right?" She asks curiously. "I'm not going to gush, trust me. I've been around more then a few this week including Sailor V."
Minoke Sato 2016-01-15 07:33:29 22802
Minoke Sato smiles. "I met Sailor V too." She then smiles. "Alright. Swirling Vortex, set up." "Ackwnoeldged. Setting up." The choker comes off of her neck on its own and starts to change, exhanding into a decent-sized mace. Minoke's clothes change too. And... then your magical sight would see something very strange. An aura of magic surrounding your companion - then she starts to float upwards. "What do you see?" she asks curiously.
Shinobu Kimura 2016-01-15 07:38:19 22803
Shinobu Kimura just watches quietly. The person in the room with her powers up then rises out of her chair. "Well, I seen magic go wild around you and now I see a red beam of light where it used to be yellow. Thats pretty cool though. I swear I am the only non-magical girl I know. It doesn't matter though. Lots of magic though. It's kinda cool."
Minoke Sato 2016-01-15 07:39:16 22804
Firebird nods. "Vortex... lets me fly again... I go by Firebird. I used that name when I did my gymnastics act. My... Barrier Jacket... is red too. And... want to see something cool? Would you l ike to experience zero-G?"
Shinobu Kimura 2016-01-15 07:40:40 22805
Shinobu Kimura smiles, "Oh sure, why not. I never have had the chance to feel that sort of thing. Go for it!" She smiles bright.
Minoke Sato 2016-01-15 07:44:42 22806
Firebird nods. "Null Bubble," she murmurs. "Null Bubble." answer the Device as a magical aura woud surround youa dn you'd start floating in Zero-G. Uncontrolled - just bouncing around a bit. "Just push against a wall and you'll go in another direction - it's like you're on the space station or something."
Shinobu Kimura 2016-01-15 07:46:13 22807
Shinobu Kimura eeps and is suddenly floating around. "That would help if I could see the walls!" She knows the floor level but like this? Nope. Gently she flops up and bumps her head on the roof. Then down to the floor which throws her off and sends her drifting into the couch.
Minoke Sato 2016-01-15 07:47:42 22808
Firebird smiles. "Sorry - it just be disorienting... here - I'll put you down." She carefully lands you on the couch and the bubble pops, and you suddenly have weight again. "For a little while, you were on the best diet plan ever - you lost all your weight," she cooos, giggling. "You can... keep this a secret, right?" she asks as she moves back to her chair. "I just have to tell SOMEONE..."
Shinobu Kimura 2016-01-15 07:48:58 22809
Shinobu Kimura nods, "Its okay. I won't tell anyone. I have a secret too. I've been given the chance to be a magical girl. Its a choice I have to make. That is the contract I spoke of. "
Minoke Sato 2016-01-15 07:53:03 22810
Firebird nods. "A contract, huh? What kind of contract?" She then raises an eyebrow as she studies you. "So - you can become a magical girl and have powers - but... you have to give something up in return? What are teh proposed terms?"
Shinobu Kimura 2016-01-15 07:56:49 22811
Shinobu Kimura takes a deep breath. "I'd become a magical girl, with the mission to destroy witches. It is an on going thing. I will need these things that the witches leave behind to keep myself going. What I get from this is a single wish. Anything I want."
Minoke Sato 2016-01-15 07:59:13 22812
Firebird blinks. "How do you define a witch?" she asks. "Because by a few definitions, I might qualify?" she asks a she returns to her chair. "Vortex, shut down." It plays the Windows shut down melody and turns back into a choker as Minoke's outfit returns to normal.
Shinobu Kimura 2016-01-15 08:01:48 22813
Shinobu Kimura shakes her head, "No. You aren't a witch. Not like I would be made to hunt. As it was described to me by Kyubey, Don't ask, Magical Girls are formed by wishes. Witches out of curses. They take on all the dark energy and spread it to others. When you hear of people randomly commiting suicide or killing people for no reason. Or doing anything within that realm of horribleness, its usually a witch." She shutters.
Minoke Sato 2016-01-15 08:03:00 22814
Minoke Sato hmmmms. "I'm pretty sure that my origin is different, but I wished to be an acrobat again - and I got it." She smiles faintly. "I wish you luck in your choice. Would you wish for your sight back?"
Shinobu Kimura 2016-01-15 08:07:16 22815
Shinobu Kimura smirks, "That is the million dollar question. I haven't the foggiest of what to wish for. I've been told not to do this by some and to do it by others. I've been worrying about others and myself and Good grief! Talk about a mess. The fact is, Since Kyubey told me about this stuff, I will have serious regrets no matter what I do. If I choose to make the wish, I will regret the fact that my soul will be pulled from my body and put into a gem. I'll regret that my life will likely be a whole lot shorter because witches are extremely dangerous. If I choose not to, Everytime I hear the news I'll regret not making a wish when people randomly commit suicide or kill each other."
Minoke Sato 2016-01-15 08:08:35 22816
Minoke Sato murmurs, "You can wish... to see. Think of that. Iwon't pressure you to make a choice, but consider - even blind, you're a wonderful person. If you could see you'd probably be working miracles."
Shinobu Kimura 2016-01-15 08:10:25 22817
Shinobu Kimura smiles a little, "I could... YOu think I should do this don't you?" She asks curiously. "Getting my soul ripped out of my body should be a deal breaker but.. better it be in a safe place then somewhere it can get hurt. right?"
Minoke Sato 2016-01-15 08:11:17 22818
Minoke Sato smiles. "If someone offered me that in exchange for my spine, I'd take the deal. But it's up to you. I can't make such a decision for you. I just know that you have a heart of gold and you'd make a wonderful magical girl."
Shinobu Kimura 2016-01-15 08:13:59 22819
Shinobu Kimura sighs, "Puella Magi don't exactly have the best of reputations. At that meeting one pulled a gun on another to get them to calm down. Sometimes not being able to see is a good thing I think. But from what I understand, They can be territorial because those things dropped by witches allow them to use their magic more freely."
Minoke Sato 2016-01-15 08:17:20 22820
Minoke Sato blinks. "Hmmmmm. That's interesting. You have a lot of decisions to make. Please - could you let me know your decision?" She then hears her cellphone and opens it. "Moshi-moshi? Mom? Yes. I'll be home soon, hanging out with a friend." She hangs up. "Mom likes to check on me. I wish you luck with your decision. Either way - you'll still be my friend."
Shinobu Kimura 2016-01-15 08:19:17 22821
Shinobu Kimura smiles, "I will let you know. Don't worry. I think I know what I am going to choose." She smirks a little. "No I am not telling yet. I told Kyubey that he would know by the end of the week. Everyone will. Even though I've been told repeatedly, I should take my time with it."
Minoke Sato 2016-01-15 08:21:14 22822
Minoke Sato smiles. "I will talk to you later. I'll help you find that viridian dress for your date - say - Saturday?" she asks. She then starts rolling backwards, her chair making a beep noise, as she opens the door behind her. "See you then!" she cooos as she closes the door behind her.
