Beacon Academy / Re: ABoat time [Open]
« on: December 09, 2018, 06:10:07 AM »
"Hey, being a mood killer is your job now, Captain!" Kisha replied with a big grin on her face, then continued to beg for another presentation of his semblance. And her wish was granted. Overexcited, Kisha happily clapped her hands together, like a small child that had just seen a magic show for the first time. Hopping, almost jumping, she made her way to the boat's rear, just as Calen advised her to, "Don't hold anything back, kay?" she called to him as she held on patiently and waited for the push. The patience gnawed at her as it took a little longer than before. Well, it didn't take THAT long, but with the excitement going on inside Kisha, it felt like an eternity. She swayed from foot to foot as she just stood there and waited for the boat to be turned and ready. Just before the launch, something flashed in Kisha's eyes and her grin turned into a smirk. This will be great!

When the boat finally launched forward Kisha did the unthinkable. She lets go. Just a shrill "WWwhhhiiiii~!" echoed through the air as she swiftly bypassed gravity and flew through the air and out of the boat. She stretched her limbs out, enjoying the wind and the water coming towards her and completely embraced the feeling of weightlessness. For the short time she had. Barely a second after she left the boat's airspace, she opened her eyes, which she had closed during her 'flight', forming one circle each with her two hands, one facing the boat, and the other centered under her. The second she made contact with the portal underneath her, she came out of the other and straightened up directly, arms stretched out to both sides as if she just finished an acrobatic performance. She even bowed at the end of her presentation and let the portals behind her disappear shortly after.

Kisha looked up from her bow, "Again!"  she called out, but this time with a silly laugh. That was just as great as she had imagined it, but she didn't miss the obvious exhaustion on Calen's face, which is why she quickly added, "just kidding!"

She trudged through the half-submerged surface of the boat to Calen, soaking everything down to her ankles. Yep, she's going to have a cold tomorrow. "Augh, Captain!" Kisha began with a faked indignant voice, "I've already told you to refrain from politeness, Miss Miles sounds so important, Kisha is totally fine!" With that, she turned away from Calen again, but didn't stop talking, "Ever heard of the word 'Yolo'? Personally, I don't like to use it, but the meaning describes me quite well. You only live once, Damn it! I knew what you do with the boat the second time, but I still made it exciting. Knowing what's going to happen is not bad, don't get me wrong here, but let me tell it to you again, live a bit riskier. Besides, you're here in Beacon, you can't get through this if you're planning everything." She paused for a moment to take a deep breath, that topic was going on long enough, "But okay. Either way he wants." She finally finished. As she spoke, she had crouched down and looked at the water inside the boat. She reached out her index finger and stuck it in the water, marking a small circle on its surface. Like the portals before, a blue disc-like creation appeared where she had painted the circle in the water, but nothing happened yet. Kisha straightened up and walked to the edge of the boat, repeating the process, placing the second portal well out of the boat's reach. As soon as the second portal appeared, the water inside the boat drained. The boat was not completely freed from the water and the entire surface was still slippery and damp, but it was better than nothing.

"Black." Kisha said out of nowhere as she watched the water drain, "I always liked this color," she added. Her clothes were about 95% brown and beige. The only black on her were the gloves and pants. Well, maybe her brown hair looked black in the darkness of the night. With the water largely back in the ocean, Kisha closed the portals with a quick wave and turned back to Calen, "What about you? My money is on gray," she said as her eyes scanned his clothes from top to bottom. "Well, if we're already on a question-and-answer session, favorite animal? Oh, no, wait! Favorite mythical creatures!?"

Mikado nodded silently as Mr. Emberstone said his name. So Smokey had told him about everyone. Good, that saved him from doing so. He followed behind the others into the building, nodding barely noticeable at Billy as she held the door open for him.

The interior decor surprised him relatively little, but he couldn't help but chuckle. He knew that Smokey had a preference for firearms and this room was filled with all kinds of guns. But he couldn't really return the enthusiasm that Serin and Billy had for the collection of weapons. Although Pock also had a built-in shotgun, this wasn't the main function of the weapon, and only served to build and maintain a distance between him and the opponent. His gaze shifted to the smaller assortment of melee weapons. They didn't interest him too much either, but it was better than the argument behind him. After Smokey had disappeared, Mikado leaned against the wall behind him and watched the conversation of the others from there.

Mikado looked barely perceptible back and forth between Smokey and Billy. That escalated quickly... His gaze then wandered to the other customers to the restaurant, all of whom cast similar glances to their table, looks that, above all, he knew very well. The waitress didn't look amused by their drama show either. He could see them standing by the side, all in a group, talking quietly with each other while their eyes kept wandering to the table of the four Hunters-in-training.

Picking up his cup, Mikado took a long swig of the still-hot coffee and turned back to his teammates, but decided not to interfere in their affairs, after all, it was not his problem.

Quietly, Kisha listened to his story, but when he finished, she couldn't help but chuckle, "Sure, there are always risks, but I've got you, right?" she said, not taking her eyes off the water. She took a deep breath before continuing, "You were alone then, right? Who knows, two people might have been better off? A backup, an early warning system, call it what you want, but he or she would have helped you with the difficulties or would have tried to stop you from doing what you in the first place. We are not perfect after all, but you can get close to with someone else on your side."

Still half dreamy, her eyes focused on the water in front of her and she barely heard Calen's warning. As she turned around to ask if he could repeat that, it was already too late. "Wha-IIIHhhhppp!" she exclaimed in a high-pitched voice as the thrust of the boat caused her to lose her balance. She waved her arms panicly in the air to keep up the slight bit of balance and to prevent herself from falling. Vainly. Usually, she had an excellent sense of balance, this was also crucial for her semblance, but she hadn't expected it, nor did something like this ever happened to her before. At least not on a boat.

She fell backward and landed with a dull thud on the wooden surface of the boat where she immediately got welcomed by the full load of water as it was splashed up and into the boat. "OuchOuchOuch,"  Kisha murmured to herself as she rubbed the pelvis on which she was loaded. Even without her aura, it wouldn't have been bad, and the pain of the bruise wasn't worth much attention either.

"You! Do that-"  I began with a threatening voice and turned around with a scowly expression, but this brightened up in a matter of seconds, "Do that again! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! PLEASE!"

During her onslaught of pleads, Kisha unknowingly moved closer to Calen, her hands folded together as if she was praying. "Please!" she implored again, ignoring the fact that he had already begun to fish.

With a determined "Hmpf" Kisha took the cards out of the small plastic box and began shuffling them, Hindu style.

"Where I come from, we call the game swimming, there's even a story to it, but it doesn't really have a happy ending. A ship goes down and only one person fits the last lifeboat, but four people want to be rescued, so you have to play a card game to decide who survives. You have three attempts, if you lose every time, you have to swim, that's why we called it swimming. But you don't die if you swim, you can still swim to the shore and survive, however, if you lose again you go under and drown." She explained to her teammates and put five stacks of three card each on the floor of the room. Then she threw one of the thousand pillows, which she had somehow packed into only one suitcase when she first arrived at Beacon, from her bed next to the stacks and threw herself on the pillow.

Before she started though, she looked up at the team leader "Don't you wanna play?" she asked confused, then the thought hit her "OOOOOOOoohhhh, you don't know how to play! Don't you worry, Nathy, I've got that under control, so," she took a deep breath "Everyone has three cards in their hand and there are three cards in the middle, the goal is to have the highest score at the end. You can earn points in two ways, either with the same symbol or the same number. When you choose to have the same symbol, the cards are counted by the numbers they represent. King, Jack, and Queen are worth 10 points, an Ace is 11. For the number part, you need three times the same number, two times don't. That then would always be 30 and a half points. With three aces you have 33 points and everyone loses a life. At a normal win, only the one with the lowest score loses a life. In order to increase your points, you must swap a card from your hand with one of those in the middle, or you can swap all three at once, but you can't swap two card in one round. If you don't want to swap you 'move', then it's the next one's turn. If you are convinced that your Hand is good enough to win, you 'knock', that means that everyone but you is once again in turn and then everyone has to show their card. If you have 31 points, that is, two 10's and one Ace, you must immediately reveal your cards and end the game, same with the 33 points. Simple, right? My dad taught me it when I was seven, so it's really easy. Well then, sit down," she finished, patting the floor next to her.

Outside the bullhead, Kisha had a perfect view of the forest in front of them. It was relatively huge and the size of the trees beat those of the Emerald Forest. "Well, let's go," she said with a smile as she approached the forest with big steps. It took it's fair share of time until they even reached the edge of the forest, after all, the Bullhead had to land as far away from the forest that no one could hear it in the overgrown trees. Good for their mission, bad for her patience.

The area around the forest was grim-empty, but one could already see small movements in the shadows deeper in. With a quiet chuckle, Kisha pulled out Cocoa from the holster and shortly thereafter turned the small dagger into the bow. The blade extended and separated itself into several smaller sections, then bent into a somewhat C shape, with the handle of the dagger flipping over and placing itself in the center of the blade. By separating the blade, the thread was released from the handle, so that it now firmly attached between the tip and the end of the blade. With another chuckle, she turned briefly to Anza "Tadradra~" she said, holding up the bow, presenting her the finished product "Told you this is going to be Epic!"

Finally arrived at the forest, Kisha stopped, her eyes fixed on the dark and light-devouring shadows in front of her. The treetops that merged into each other let little to no light shine into the forest. Nevertheless, one could still see the faint outlines of the trees and bushes, and the glowing eyes of a Grimm, if one dared to approach them that is.

"Hmph, ready?" she asked Anza, a rhetorical question, of course they were ready, at least she was. With a small clicking sound, she pushed the lens mechanism behind her ear over the eye. This did not really help with the darkness in front of them, but she did it anyway.

Were those the last ones? Was it finally over?

"Let's just go, the population of Moundan is safe after all," said Mikado and went to the path leading away from the battlefield. For all he cares, a huge fourty-foot huge Goliath can walk through here, he was leaving! Siu also didn't seem to have seen any further Grimm, otherwise, she would have said something. Either that were the last ones, or they turned around and left, whatever it was, it was over now.

Mikado whistled Kiro back to him, letting him also immediately shrink back to his usual size. As far as he knew, the pilot said that he would wait in front of Moundan, and that when the mission is done he would pick them up the three and bring them back to Beacon, so that was their next target. Before he walked off though, he turned back to Smokey, with a look that says, 'Are you coming now?'

Jup, this mission has changed nothing about his relationship with this little gunfreak.







Targets:

  • Beowolves: x 2 shot by Smokey
  • (Other Mid-sized Nevermore: x1 Killed by Cranes

And once again it had been worthwhile to walk with a distance to others. Mikado was still far enough away to avoid the domino effect that sprang from Serin to Billy and watched in silence as the two fell to the ground.
Without reaching out a hand or helping them to get up in another way, let alone asking if they were okay, he stood still in his place, his focus still on the gun shop and the newly-added voice of the apparent owner...

...Which also apparently is Smokey's father. What a surprise that Smokey knows, or is related to, the owner of a gun shop whose surname is written on a sign above the entrance. Big surprise.

When the man finally came out of the weapon shop and into view one could already see the first similarities between him and Smokey. Well, at least the size was accurate.

Silently, Mikado watched Serin's and Billy's more or less conventional introductions, tending more to less with Serin. He almost slapped himself in an act of disbelief, probably executing one of the most annoyed face-palms in history, but he left it at a less telling eye roll. He, however, didn't even introduce himself to the man, he wasn't asked about it after all. Though, he had the feeling that his silence will not last much longer. There are most likely going to be questions, at the latest, when Smokey's father spots the small aura creature on his head.

Mikado wrinkled his nose in disgust when he first heard and then saw Smokey devouring his food. Devouring was probably a too harmless term compared to the way he stuffed his face. With a barely perceptible sigh, he turned to his order, the caramel latte, whose cup he holds with both hands to absorb the heat of the faintly steaming hot drink.

He didn't really take part in the conversation, he just listened. Yeah, right, Smokey broke the ice and went underwater with Calen, Billy and Setsuna went down shortly after, too. Probably the highlight of the fight and one couldn't see anything because everyone was in the water. The crowd cheered and at the same time was worried about the duration Smokey and Calen spent underwater. At least Billy quickly came up again. Yes, he had watched the fight. On his scroll. In the library. With an opened book, which he almost paid more attention to than the fight.

It would be a lie to say that the fight hadn't interested him, if that had been the case he wouldn't have had the live broadcast played on his scroll. It was rather because he didn't want to be in the stadium. The yelling, the tight-spaced seats and the disputes that came up here and there when someone lost a bet to someone else because that person had bet on the losing team. He didn't need all that just to watch a fight. And he had already read the book he had with him, it served more as a distraction for the interruptions between the fights or the less interesting parts of a fight, like the underwater part.

Mikado looked up from his still slightly steaming coffee, releasing a hand from the cup and pushed the plate that Serin held out with a, "I don't want anything," away. Like the rest of the team, he didn't really pack anything decent to eat for the flight, but he didn't feel hungry anyway. Yet.

'Emberstone Firearms, huh?'

Mikado couldn't remember Smokey ever mentioned it to him that his family owned a business. Especially one that works with the SDC.

Silently he looked at the building. It was definitely in a better shape than most of the other building they had passed. Alone The advertising sign looked as if it was planned for a livelier city.
Hard to believe that this was once the capital of the kingdom. So gray and monotonous, even though he had to admit that the silence was quite pleasant. Since the arrival in Beacon and especially now with the festival going on, he didn't get enough of it after all.

He continued to study the building. Smokey wanted to visit his family, okay, understandable, but that didn't explain why he couldn't just tell them. What a waste of time following him here... He will never get those hours back. Well, now that he was already here, he could at least also take a look. There wasn't anything better to do anyway...

He followed Serin at a distance through the front entrance into the building.

For a fraction of a second Kisha froze in her motion. "Oh, he... So he is in a coma? I'm so sorry," she said after hearing about Taro's condition. That was the first time she heard about it, normally tidings like these spread like a wildfire in the deciduous forest. Then again, compared to the other students in Beacon, she was basically new herself. It hadn't been that long since Blair and her arrived as the replacement of team ROSE. Then it became BSEK, than INKK. Now that she fought about it, it had been only 2 months... Maybe she was just too late and the discussion about the incident had already calmed down.
"But..." she began after a short silence "You have to expect something like this We are trained here to become the protectors of the world after all. That's our decision and we have to live with the consequences" Her voice took on a slightly bitter tone at these words if you looked closely you could even see a glimmer of despair in her eyes.
What else should she feel? The world they live in is unfair and unpredictable. To deny that would be a grievous mistake. Her jump in personality went as fast as it came and she turned her head to Calen with another, benevolent grin.
"Sounds like an interesting team. I can't wait for us to introduce them to each other. Hehe~ That sure will be a funny encounter "

When Calem finally came to her aid she finally let go of the sail and watched attentively as he formed the individual nodes. W-Was she expected to memorize all of them by the end? How was the first one he showed her tied again? Kisha was so busy repeating and sorting the usage and formations of the knots in her head that she almost missed Calen's statement.
"Huh?- Oh Sure, Ai Ai Captain Mood killer!" she finally answered with a salute and turned to the not so obvious steering wheel. Relatively sure with what she was doing, even though she didn't even know what exactly this was supposed to be, she grabbed the lever with both hands, ready to change the direction of the boat, in case they would threaten to drive into something.

"Awful!?" You're calling this an awful thing!? Are you even aware of what's happening here? " she asked in disbelief, the grin on her face just widening "It's wonderful! You have no idea what's going to happen and that's what makes it all that much more interesting! Where is the fun and the thirst for adventure in something you already know? After all, it's not as if we were in great danger. Should something happen we can still swim to the shore or... Well, I would have a way that would bring us there directly. Just- Just enjoy being haphazardly for a change. These are the memories that stay with you the best."

She gave him one last, big, joyful smile and then turned back to steer the boat. She didn't want to lie, she had already forgotten half of the things Calem had explained to her, and the next time she gets on a boat, she would be as haphazardly as she is now, but that only made the situation better.

As more of the stars light up in the night sky, the cool wind pulled in, filling the now taut sails with air and blowing her hair in the wind. Dreamily, she stared ahead and the light on the stars reflected in her eyes. Without even noticing it, she began to softly hum a song, "Nenene ne ne, we'll always be this young, nenene ne ne, you'll never have to run..."

At a noticeable distance, Mikado followed the rest of the team through the streets of the city and finally through the door of the restaurant. He only glanced briefly at the large white sign next to the front door. It showed the silhouette of a dog and the words "We must stay outside" and "No pets allowed" were written in capital letters below. Say what you want but in this regard, Kiro belonged in the category 'pet'.

It wouldn't be much of an effort to deactivate his semblance and make the dragon disappear from the scene, but it wasn't the effort that made Mikado never 'turn off' Kiro. There was more to it. He got used to him.
Semblance or not, he had a stronger bond to Kiro than to any of his teammates. However, when they entered the restaurant, the dragon was nowhere to be found. Mikado had put him in his backpack on their way back to Vale, mainly to alleviate the weight on his head during the long flight. In there, between some thin books and a water bottle, the rabbit size creature had enough space to... Lay and wait, it's not like he can get bored anyway.

He placed the half-opened backpack next to his chair and sat down at the same table as the rest of the team BSSM. Silently, he turned the menu on its back and opened the first page. And immediately closed it again after reading through the first three rows of the beverage section. When the waiter finally came and asked for their order, he answered with a terse "The caramel latte" and handed him the menu. He didn't even look at the listed food!

Mikado spent the flight time on his scroll. Although looking out of the window had been a good way to pass some time, the passing clouds and the underlying landscape quickly became boring, so he turned towards his alternative. Sudoku. He had always liked the logical puzzle game and with his focus on it, time passed much faster.

After the bullhead arrived at his destination he gave the driver a neutral nod and followed behind the rest of the team, heading straight for Smokey.

He... hadn't really had a reason to follow him. Now that he thought about it, he would have rather stayed in Atlas and explored the city for himself but was it too late for that now. He stopped beside Billy, arms crossed, not saying anything.

"Yes, pistachios," Kisha answered Ismael with a bright laugh "What did you think I'd say? Chocolate? Believe me, it's hard to love something listless when it's around you every day," She listened to the introductions of her teammates, but couldn't say that the information was anything new to her, after all, they already knew each other for a couple of months, enough time to know what they like and dislike. For her at least.

It shouldn't be a big surprise that she was the first to speak up at Kins question, "Well, unpacking doesn't take long, if necessary we have time for it later, I would say that we are doing something together now. However, there is not a lot of things we can do here, at least not without getting into trouuuuuu-. Oh wait, wait!" Kisha reached under her bed and pulled out her own suitcase, which she still didn't completely unpacked to this day. Clothes and anything important was of course already stowed in the room, but smaller items such as a small selection of comic books and various other odds and sods laid there scattered and messy around inside the suitcase. Including was a transparent box of poker cards. Only cards, no chips. She took out the box and laid it on the bed next to her, then stoved the case under her bed again.

"We can play Thirty-One, I hope you know how it works. It's really simple, or do you have a better idea?"

"Uhh," Kisha stammered surprised, thinking about how to answer this question. It wasn't embarrassing or unpleasant, but it came so suddenly that it took her a second to react. "Uhh- not really, I mean, no one ever asked me before, I mean, I already had a lot of friends, male friends, but never something like a real relationship."
Kisha had gazed out of the window during her narration and only now saw Anza's blushed face. She looked at her puzzled, then her face twisted and shortly thereafter she burst out in laughter. It wasn't a mocking laugh, it was a genuine laugh filled with joy.

"You're really adorable Anza, We definitely have to do something together after all this here is over, okay?" she said after recovering from the laughter and wiping a tear of joy off her face.Still with a joyful and well-intentioned smile on her face, she held out her fist, her pinkie finger outstretched, "Promise?"




There was a crackling sound from the Bullhead's speaker as it started up, followed by the pilot's voice as he told them that they arrived. Were the 20 minutes over already? Damn, time was racing...

The Bullhead landed on a green space, a little further away from the forest where they should carry out their mission. "Looks like we're here," Kisha said, getting up from her seat, "let's get to work then."
