Title: Between Classes

A break from learning sees Kinzo and Ren catching up after the battle with the Book Witch. Much is discussed.


Kinzo Hiroyuki and Ren Aizawa


Infinity Institute

OOC - IC Date:

6/25/14 - 3 February 2014

<Pose Tracker> Kinzo Hiroyuki [Infinity Institute (11)] has posed.

Kinzo Hiroyuki had spent the better part of the day in classes and now was his free period. He was at his locker, putting a few things into it, but not before peeking inside a moment. He sort of seems saddened at something, before putting his tablet computer, and a few books in there, before closing it. He then turned around and thumped his back against the lockers as he rubbed his face and just grumbled to himself..."Good one Hiroyuki..... why do you.... *mumble, mumble.*" he merely walked along the hallway and sat himself on a bench looking particularly glum about something.

He reaches into his pocket and pulled out a brown-leather notebook as he jotted down a few things with a pen. He didn't seem to be in a particular hurry about anything. Perfect to be ambushed, perhaps!

<Pose Tracker> Ren Aizawa [Infinity Institute (10)] has posed.

Well, Ren didn't really plan on ambushing Kinzo. She too is on her free period, having suffered through classes as usual. Happy for a reprieve -- even if it's just for an hour -- she traipses down the halls of the school, considering a stop at the vending machine for a pineapple juice box. Yeah. That sounds pretty good right about now!

She rounds the corner, mind fully on the delicious treat that awaits her. Unexpectedly though she happens to spy the aforementioned eleventh grader seated on one of the vacant benches. Oh! What a pleasant surprise! Smiling broadly, she adjusts her course over to him, taking a seat on the bench before making her presence known vocally. "Heeeeey Hiroyuki-kun!"

<Pose Tracker> Kinzo Hiroyuki [Infinity Institute (11)] has posed.

Kinzo Hiroyuki seems intently writing whatever he is, when 'Heeeeey Hiroyuki-Kun!'. This causes him to scramble and stuff the small notebook into his uniform's jacket pocket. "Ah... hello...um..." he tries to think again. "Ren...wasn't it?" he asks as he leans back a bit. He smiles a bit. "How are you?" he asks....

He thinks a bit... "Um...are you okay after the other day?" he asks in a non-specific manner. They're still in a hallway, even if it's rarely being traveled during the period. "Everyone else seemed okay but.... those things can be kind of draining for a lot of people it seems." he says softly.

<Pose Tracker> Ren Aizawa [Infinity Institute (10)] has posed.

She sees him hurry to tuck the notebook away. Hmm, what could that be about? She won't press him about it. They're still fairly new to one another so that wouldn't be very appropriate! "I'm good. Enjoying this break. However short-lived it may be." She reaches her arms up to stretch and let out a wistful sigh. The sun shines in through a nearby window, and only serves as further impetus to just curl up and fall asleep. Ah, if only!

His question about her well-being is of course in regards to the Witch battle they took part in a day or so before. Her smile drops a bit. "Oh. Yeah. I'm fine." And really she is for the most part. "I'm more worried about Eri-chan... What if we hadn't been there to help her?" The sight of the Puella Magi nearly being eaten by the Book Witch springs to mind, causing Ren to shudder. "I really don't want to dwell on it too much..."

<Pose Tracker> Kinzo Hiroyuki [Infinity Institute (11)] has posed.

Kinzo Hiroyuki frowns. "I've told her that I'd help her with her hun---" he catches himself, and then continues. "With her work a few times, but she never seems to take me up on it." he admits. "I owe her a lot... so.." he nods a bit. "I don't like those things." he says. "They made me dizzy a lot when I first started dealing with them with Eri, but... I guess I got used to it." he shrugs.

He sighs and smooths his pants out a bit as he leans back. "So tell me about yourself Ren?" he asks a moment. "I mean, if you feel comfortable that is." he says a bit, as he crosses his arms finally against his chest. "Unless you're wanting me to go first, but this side of myself is pretty boring admittedly." he smiles.

<Pose Tracker> Ren Aizawa [Infinity Institute (10)] has posed.

"That... sounds like Eri alright." Ren smiles a bit, though it's completely strained. "I don't like them either. They're just... wrong. Their whole domain makes me want to run in the complete opposite direction. Though that wouldn't be very heroic, so..."

Ren blinks when he turns things to her personally. "It's only fair, right?" She inhales, folding her hands in her lap. Again, she's never been particularly comfortable with talking about herself. Though Kinzo is a (potential) friend. And you have to share intimate information with (potential) friends. Right? /Right./ "I think I'm just as boring outside of my other, magical self." She answers truthfully with a bit of a giggle. "But! I used to go to Juuban. If that counts as interesting. Then I got invited to transfer here for reasons I haven't completely figured out. Although it /did/ lead to me finding Souverain Heraut." At this she reaches down and grabs the ring hanging on the bit of string around her neck, holding it up for Kinzo to see. The golden gem on the ring flashes. "Best thing that's ever happened to me!"

<Pose Tracker> Kinzo Hiroyuki [Infinity Institute (11)] has posed.

Kinzo Hiroyuki nods. "I used to go to Juuban here, but was able to transfer here after making a presentation that impressed the assistant headmaster." he lies. He's here for a different reason, but he's not about to go telling Ren about the Magic Association just yet. He hrmmms as she holds up the ring on the string up and he regards it a bit..

"I'm kind of a mathematics and computer major. I'm kind of hoping to work on some revolutionary in terms of computer security." he nods. He motions to the ring. "So you don't know where it came from?..." he asks. He reaches into his pocket, and pulls out that harmless looking bottle of cologne. "You were fortunate, at least." he admits. He motions to the bottle. "I bought this after having a string of nightmares and dreams when a few others in my physical education classes started wearing this cologne brand. I was drawn to it." he shrugs. He puts the bottle back and away. "Do you have a goal...or a mission Ren?" he asks a little softly. "I mean... well." he motions to your sparkly apparently magical ring.

<Pose Tracker> Ren Aizawa [Infinity Institute (10)] has posed.

"You went to Juuban too?" Her eyes light up. Yes. Juuban is a very nice place! She misses it so. Though she's grown accustomed to life here at Infinity -- despite her initial (and sometimes continued) misgivings. "A presentation that impressed the Headmaster... Wow, you must be very talented!" Unlike her. But she stays silent on /that/ matter. Ahem.

"...Is it bad that I haven't found my niche here yet?" She bites her bottom lip. "There's so many fields to study... I'm not entirely confident I'll ever find something to specialize in. Though my mathematics are pretty top notch." Something which she suspects is due to her proficiency with spells. Souverain Heraut has inferred as much, too. It feels a bit like cheating at times but...

"Oh. That sounds pretty scary. I just got this really weird feeling that I had to seek out something." She motions to the ring. "It was him, of course, calling out to me. It was all very overwhelming and strange!" Then, at the mention of goals, she pauses as if in deep thought. Only after a few moments of consideration does she reply. "Honestly? I just want to get really good at magic. Souverain Heraut has promised to help me with that. I don't want to waste what potential I may have. It would just be wrong to do that." Her grip on the ring tightens a bit as her eyes sort of drift off.

<Pose Tracker> Kinzo Hiroyuki [Infinity Institute (11)] has posed.

Kinzo Hiroyuki hrms and regards Ren a bit as she says 'Him'... "Oh...! It's a... being. I'm sorry, I didn't meant to call him... an 'it' earlier." he admits. "Sorry, I try to be sensitive of this kind of thing." he says. He frowns as he looks around, no one around, good. He says. "I'm... well, a 'Perfume Warrior', he says. "Though that's kind of a... recent thing." he admits. "I was kind of a lone wolf for a while...kept my distance from the other Perfume Warriors because I was afraid of what I was in the past life I could remember...." he says.

He head tilts a bit as he ponders Ren a bit. "I know Eri because she was willing to look past some of the things I was doing at the time and still willing to give me the benefit of the doubt." he says.

<Pose Tracker> Ren Aizawa [Infinity Institute (10)] has posed.

"Yes. He's pretty aware of his surroundings. It's amazing. I never thought something like him would be possible." Ren's gaze refocuses. Talking about Heraut is obviously a favorite topic of hers. Their closeness isn't imagined, that's for sure.

"Perfume warrior!" She exclaims, then reddens, covering her mouth. "Oh! Sorry for shouting that out." Ehehehe. "It's jut that I never would have guessed without you telling me. I've met some of the other Perfumes during fights. They're amazing. All the Cures are. You guys /do/ count as Cures, right?"

Mention of Eri's acceptance of him warms Ren's heart. "Eri-chan is great like that. I consider myself lucky to have her as a friend. It's why I want to do my best to prop her up when she's falling down."

<Pose Tracker> Kinzo Hiroyuki [Infinity Institute (11)] has posed.

Kinzo Hiroyuki ah! He kind of winces as you exclaim it out loud. He ponders. "I don't think so... " he says to the Cure question. He frowns. "I... well. I was a member of The Apothecary, In the past life I remember in another place and another time. They want to control and contort everyone's memories. When I.... discovered my cologne here, I was afraid of a lot of things. I couldn't become that person, I tried to stop The Apothecary in a stupid manner, that involved stealing and sealing bad memories from people. This was kind of silly of me." he frowns.

"The Perfumes forgave me, and try not to hold my past life against me." he nods. "I feel better nowadays about a lot of this though." he smiles. "I used to usually just keep to myself." he says. "It wasn't very fun, but I was afraid I could...turn back into this person for a better part of the beginning of all this for me...."

<Pose Tracker> Ren Aizawa [Infinity Institute (10)] has posed.

"Oh Kinzo..." Ren starts after hearing his explanation. That did sound really tough. She didn't think she had any past lives that she knew of. Realizing something like that one day out of the blue is /heavy/ stuff. She reaches up to place a hand on his shoulder with a smile. "Well, I'm glad you've managed to not become that person. I'm glad to have you as an ally. There's so much darkness and ill-will out there. Becoming a magical girl has really opened my eyes to all of that."

<Pose Tracker> Kinzo Hiroyuki [Infinity Institute (11)] has posed.

Kinzo Hiroyuki laughs, and smiles. "It's fine, really." he smiles, "I know I'm not like... going to 'revert' now or anything." he says. "Now at least. I still don't really know a lot of things, and things are still mysteries for me." he nods a bit. "I'm not even really telling you all of it. If I went into detail well..." he sighs. "I don't need to make you feel worse today." he laughs.

He does head tilt. "So... you came across... your friend there. Souverain Heraut, here? And it's been teaching you since?" he asks. "Is that draining on you?... I feel kind of silly that I don't need to train I just kind of...."

"Remember a thing here or there. I wake up and....I remember Dark Amber could stop time.... or throw his blades in a manner like a bola or something." he says. "Kind of... remembering what was always there?" he asks.

<Pose Tracker> Ren Aizawa [Infinity Institute (10)] has posed.

"I don't think you will so..." She reassures, chest swelling outward a bit. His mention that she doesn't know the whole story perplexes her a bit, though again she doesn't feel the need to press him and bring up any more bad memories. He doesn't need that right now.

"Yeah I did!" She nods, enthusiasm appearing once again when the talk turns to her device. "It's not so bad. We run training simulations. It helps a lot when I have to face the real thing. But... I'll admit that knowing what to do instinctively like you seem able to would come in handy. Oh well. I can't complain too much!" She shrugs, then continues. "It doesn't get confusing sometimes, though? Or like... weird? Knowing all that?"

<Pose Tracker> Kinzo Hiroyuki [Infinity Institute (11)] has posed.

Kinzo Hiroyuki frowns. "It does actually, sometimes. Because sometimes I react how Dark Amber would in a given situation, and usually it's embarrassing if I'm not careful." he says as he looks at the clock and frowns. "I should be going now Ren..." but he smiles. "If you want to go out or something after, I'm not doing anything after school today, I don't think." he says as he strokes his chin.

<Pose Tracker> Ren Aizawa [Infinity Institute (10)] has posed.

"Oh! Ok! Did the time go by that quickly...?" She looks at the clock on the wall. It did! Wow! "I enjoyed this a lot, Kinzo-kun. And yeah, I'm free after school. We can go to the arcade maybe? They have this new fighting game I've been wanting to try out...!"
