Title: The Veil Falls! Identities Revealed!

After an awfully tough battle with a Nakewameke, Endo finally comes clean about who he is to Ren...


Endo Naoki and Ren Aizawa


Shitamachi Low City

OOC - IC Date:

7/3/2014 - ???

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

Endo isn't in the best shape after the tussle with the jack-in-the-box nakewameke. One of his arms doesn't seem to want to do anything but cause him sharp, twisting pain, his ribs hurt, and he's barely got the energy to maintain his barrier jacket.

But last he saw Ren was in worse shape. She also fell off a building, which is somewhat concerning. So he's made the effort to scout the rooftops, mostly taking small hops and dragging his Device limply behind him for the trip. He spots her from a perch above the alleyway she's plopped down into, and after a second of squinting he seems satisfied that she's mostly alive.

A half-step is taken back in the direction he came, and then he hesitates. He probably shouldn't just leave here there. She did come all the way out here to help those kids, she's probably not lying about doing what she does to keep people safe. She's like him. Not like the people he's supposed to be fighting. Whoever they are.

<YOU RECONSIDER.> Fallen stern notes.

"Aah," The boy puffs out a breath in annoyance, wincing briefly when he does. "I hate being a liar, but..."


"Huh? I...are you telling me to make friends? Did I die back there? This is a hallucination, right?"


"Yeah, great. That's more like it." Endo lips press into a dour line. He wavers for a second more, and then he throws his Device off the room. The sword plunges through the air, point down, smashing into concrete at its end. Endo comes after, gritting his teeth and stepping off the edge. He makes less noise when he lands, dropping down next to the ridiculously sized weapon.

So cool~

Except for the part where he leg gives, and his chest heaves, and he topples over face-first into the concrete. "Aaummmmfine. I'm fine."

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

Ren is hurt. Like, really hurt. Back in her civilian form, she's panting heavily. Moving is not an option right now. Maybe in an hour? Yeah. Definitely an hour. She can just hang out here. In this alley.

Yeah. Best plan.

She looks up when there's a sudden sound of crashing, and sees it's courtesy of a very familiar looking sword. It's owner comes following after it later, ungracefully landing on his face. Ouch. Ren gasps, covering her mouth. Is he ok?!


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

Endo picks himself up after a second. He decides that leaning against the sword is a good idea, for now. "Hello, Ren-san." There's a pause, as he settles himself. "Are you okay?" Which is a silly question, because she clearly isn't. "I wanted to make sure you were okay. And..." Endo glances back at his Device, as if waiting for it to say something contradictory. When it doesn't, he continues.

"You don't have to call me that. Sorry, I should have told you sooner, but you...hmm. Just, ah, call me Endo." He looks appropriately embarrassed.

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

Ren smiles over at him, holding up a hand to wave it dismissively. Which hurts. Ow. But she tries her best not to show it!

"I'm fine! Don't worry about me. Just... taking a breather." Which is mostly true. Really. "I'll be good to go in just a bit." Now that part isn't entirely true.

Then, Stern confesses something. Something /major/. Ren looks at him funny until the name 'Endo' comes spilling out of his mouth. She goes still, eyes widening. "E-Endo!? You're Stern-kun!?"

If she could move right now she'd totally fall over comically.

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

"Kind of. Well, definitely, actually." He kind of half-looks away, unwilling to meet Ren's eyes for a moment. "I felt bad about not telling you. It was really dishonest of me, and I'm sorry." He sounds genuinely guilty about it, too.

And, as if he needs to prove what he's saying, he reaches back to touch the hilt of his weapon. It glows, dark purple light flooding outward, and then vanishing along with the dark metal. Now Endo is Endo, wearing an intricate looking ring and leaning against a wall. Apparently the Barrier Jacket was helping keep him together, since he sags much more visibly once it's gone. Also cuts, bruises, and he just looks really, really tired.

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

"Oh." Is all Ren says for a few moments, watching Endo with this newly bestowed knowledge in mind. But she doesn't seem angry or (emotionally) hurt. "It's alright." She says finally, managing a tired smile. "I know you have your reasons for wanting to remain anonymous. I bet it was quite a shock when I revealed myself to you first, huh?" It's funny. But laughing isn't something she can do right now.

When Endo slips out of his heroic guise and just /deflates/, Ren takes on the concerned look from earlier again. "...Are /you/ going to be alright?"

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

"I was pretty surprised," He admits. "I tried to avoid you, but you kept bothering me. You were really a burden." Endo's lips twitch into a smile, something to indicate he's teasing the girl. He pushes off the wall once things stop spinning, moving over to Ren and where she's parked herself.

"I'm just really tired. I don't think I have any power left." A hand is offered down, adding, "You look pretty bad, though. You should go home."

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

"Oh yeah? I was that persistent, huh?" Ren rolls her eyes and shakes her head, grinning nevertheless. The teasing is well-received considering... well...

"It may take a few days to come back to you." She answers, referring to the loss of power he mentioned experiencing. Ren looks at the offered hand for awhile before taking it. "Oh boy. This part is going to suck..." And suck it does, the injured girl letting out a cry as she struggles to pull herself up. "Ah! That's not good..."

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

Endo is at least in good enough shape to support Ren when he drags her to her feet. "I know, I just haven't used that much at once before." A nod after. "We can talk about this more later, when you're better. Or, at least we can find a better place for you to sit around."

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

Ren looks up at Endo, eyes full of gratitude. And... something else. "Thanks, Endo-kun." He's providing her with a shoulder to lean on. Both literally and figuratively. "I think the hospital is out of the question. No way we'd be able to explain why we're so scuffed up...."
