Title: An Easy Breezy Night

"...Do you save helpless maidens in your spare time?"


Endo Naoki and Ren Aizawa


Industrial District

OOC - IC Date:

06/27/14 - 5 February 2014

<Pose Tracker> Endo Naoki [Juuban Public School (10)] has posed.

Endo, true to his word, has decided to hang around the Industrial District in case anyone needs him. The two people that he knows, anyway. He's found that there are a lot of other people who seem to be doing the same sort of thing he is, but he's not so sure about them. The two Mages he met before he at least got to have a chat with, and they aren't terrible people. MAYBE.

So, here he is. Like before, Endo seems to have decided to hang out in a construction yard. The blocks of piping and brick are less skeletal now, slowly taking shape under the hands that work the yard during the day. Endo's seated on a beam of metal that cuts across the third story of the building, all Barrier Jacketed up. His sword is there too, the Device precariously balanced next to him.

He also has a box. It's small, white, and he appears to be drawing something out of it to chew on. There's a dull purple light to mark his presence, something more easily visible from above than the street nearby.

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

Night has fallen over Tokyo. And Ren is out amongst the bustling urban jungle's environment instead of being cooped up in her room at home. Standing atop the roof of one of the many high-rise building, she's in mage mode, wind blowing her hair back as she leans against the metal railing that circles the perimeter of the building's roof. Her eyes are focused on nothing in particular, too many thoughts floating through her head at the moment. Souverain Heraut is loosely gripped in her hand, the elegant scepter glowing faintly as it scans the area for any anomalies that might suggest youma activity.

...Though if Ren were to be honest with herself she's not really in the mood to patrol and beat up monsters tonight. In fact, she could really use someone to talk to...

"Alright Heraut. We're moving." She says after awhile, not waiting for a confirmation from her device before jumping into the air and flying off. Curiously, she's headed towards the Industrial District.

Her arrival comes soon enough, choosing to gracefully land on an iron beam. Of course, she has a reason for coming here. The reason being that suited-up knight with the big sword who is currently snacking on something. Ren smiles and walks along the beam towards him. "Hey! I was hoping you'd be here..."

<Pose Tracker> Endo Naoki [Juuban Public School (10)] has posed.


Endo doesn't fall over when discovered this time. He does half-go for the handle of the Device sitting behind him when Ren touches down before he realizes who it is. The knight sinks back down a touch as she moves closer, offering a small smile if his own in return.

"Oh, hey." He's still a bit fidgety, but at least he can look at her this time. Hopefully the whole disguise thing holds up. "Do you want one of these?" The box is raised, offered out toward Ren. Apparently there are croissants in it.

The one he was eating has come missing. Probably because he spit it out in panic at Fallen Stern's warning.

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

Ren leans forward to peek into the box. "Oh! Yes! If that's alright with you..." And then a gloved hand moves in to pluck one of the pastries out of the box. "Thank you." She adds, taking that invitation to treat herself as an a-ok to seat herself right next to him. "So Stern." She addresses him with the name he revealed to them last time they met here, pausing momentarily to take a bite of the croissant. Mmm! Delicious! After wiping her mouth, she continues, "Are you out here because you didn't want to stay at home alone too?"

<Pose Tracker> Endo Naoki [Juuban Public School (10)] has posed.

They're kind of fresh, the croissants. Mostly. Endo's eyes slant over at Ren when she takes a seat. She doesn't seem to recognize him any more than she did before, so far so good. Even if it is pretty dishonest. His face scrunches up briefly.

"Huh?" A pause. "Ah-not really. I was going to wander around and look for trouble." Whatever that looks like. "But I thought I'd come by and see if either you or Magic-the other girl were around. I wanted to ask you two some stuff." He plucks up another piece of bread, nibbling at the end of it.

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

"Oh." Ren nods, taking another bite of croissant. Looking for trouble is no new concept to her. When you go out on patrol you're pretty much asking for something big and bad to come stomping your way. Again though, tonight wasn't solely about that for Ren.

"Huh? What did you want to ask?" Lera not being here to back her up shouldn't be too much of an issue. She'll try her best to answer anything he throws at her. "I'm still very curious about you." She says after awhile, cheeks turning red. "I-I mean... it's kind of a cliche. Mysterious knight with a big sword and all. Do you save helpless maidens in your spare time?" Ok. She's likely teasing him a bit now. Probably.

<Pose Tracker> Endo Naoki [Juuban Public School (10)] has posed.

Endo cocks his head toward Ren, blinking owlishly at the girl. "Who, me?" He points at himself. As if to be sure she knows who she's referring too. It turns in a dismissive, nuh-uh sort of wave. There's a laugh too, something sharp and dismissive. It's a good thing recognition inhibition is a thing, because the sound would be nearly unmistakable otherwise.

"Most of the girls I've run into are scarier than I am." He's seen grade school girls taking out evil swans with the equivalent of orbital cannons, after all. They probably don't need help.

"Actually. I wanted to know what kind of-monsters? Monsters you've run into, Aizawa-san." A nod. "There seem to be a lot of different types they make. There was one made out of clothing that was eating color the other day. I was pretty gray for a little while afterwards."

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

Ren laughs along with him. But that doesn't mean she still doesn't find him dashing, in a way. His modesty only adds to the air he gives off. Part of her begins to wonder who the guy beneath the 'mask' is. If he doesn't want to reveal his secret identity to anyone though that's more than fine. Not everyone went around revealing themselves (within reason) like she does.

"A clothes monster that ate color? That's... really bizarre." And she's seen some /extremely/ odd things since jumping into this business. "From the way you make it sound it sucked away /your/ color? Creepy. I don't think I'd want to walk around colorless." How would she explain that to her parents? "But there's all kinds of youma out there. One that really stands out from memory though has to be the Eagle. It was a man... dressed like the American flag... except his head was an eagle's. And he had guns. Lots of guns. It got really messy, but we were able to defeat him."

<Pose Tracker> Endo Naoki [Juuban Public School (10)] has posed.

"Some girl came and fixed it. There were a few others there too, but I didn't really stay around to talk." He seems pretty skittish about those sorts of things. He doesn't even seem fully comfortable around Ren yet, but the more Endo talks the more relaxed he seems to be. Less stoic knight and more casual chatter.

"That's..." He has to think of the word. "Ridiculous. How stupid." A second is spent nibbling on the rest of his bread, before he continues, "Why would someone even make that? It must have been an American. Americans are weird."

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

"Ah. At least it got taken care of. Something like that roaming around would be really problematic." Yes. Problematic. And a multitude of other similar things that aren't good things at all. "It seems like every day more of those monsters pop up. I just hope they don't tip the scales too far in their favor."

His comment about Americans earns a giggle out of her. "They are!" She thinks about Lera and her weird outbursts, mainly. "But they all mostly seem alright. Not that I've met many of them, mind you. There's a few around Infinity. But not enough for me to say I have experience dealing with them." She screws her face up then, searching her thoughts. "Annnnd just the other day I fought a giant, rampaging coffee cup. Well, I had help of course. Some Pretty Cure girls were there. Have you met anyone from that group yet? They're amazing fighters! So much enthusiasm!"

<Pose Tracker> Endo Naoki [Juuban Public School (10)] has posed.

"Coffee cup?" Endo makes another face. Something appropriately disgusted. "I think maybe I gave these things too much credit." Really, a coffee cup. The clothing monster was scary, but he has to draw a line somewhere.

"Pretty Cure. A really yellow girl yelled something about that before, I think." His brows scrunch together, the Knight making a visible effort to bring that memory back to the surface. He must not have done too well, because he just shrugs afterward. "Hmm. They fight those monsters too, huh?" His tone is considerate, sort of half-distracted.

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

"Yeah! We beat that coffee cup down pretty good. I know it probably seems like a really silly monster but if we'd let it keep going it could've really hurt someone." Ren points out. She's obviously of the thought that any bad creature left to its own devices will eventually become something ever more dangerous. Best to nip them in the bud before that. "The Cures /are/ very colorful, so that girl in yellow you mentioned was likely one of them. They're pretty inspiring to fight alongside. I really hope I get to meet them again soon." She brings both hands up to her cheeks, eyes filled with admiration. Could... Ren be fangirling right now?!

<Pose Tracker> Endo Naoki [Juuban Public School (10)] has posed.

"Right, it was good you took care of that. There really are a lot more of them than I expected." He puffs out a breath of air, hands pushing him up to his feet, balancing neatly on the beam as he rises to his feet. "So. I guess I'll just have to work harder." The knight flashes a short smile toward his companion, something meant to be encouraging as he reaches down to pick up his device.

"I better get going. I'll see you later, Aizawa-san."

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

He's going? Ren scrambles to her feet, nodding at him hurriedly. "Ah! Ok then Stern-san... Be careful, ok? And if you ever need help... I'll be around." She beams and gives him a thumbs up. "Try not to be a stranger!"
