-Don't look now, Professor, but there's an emaciated-looking teen shambling your direction all zombie like-
"... Apologies, but the Wendy's is that way."
points in a random direction
-The zombie boy's eyes LIGHT UP-
Wendy's!? Where?? I'm starving, man, you gotta be more specific!
"Erm... I'm not sure, I'm old, these things slip my mind!"
Old Man, I ain't gonna starve to death here in Whatever-The-Hell-This-Place is!
-He puts his HANDS on his SHOULDERS-
Please. TELL me where the Wendy's is.....if I don't eat soon......I may have to resort to DESPERATE measures.........
I'll think of something eventually, I guess. Just gotta stay positive.
"Ho- just, help yourself to what's inside, and get your hands off me!"
"Positivity's the fuel of life, nyehe..."
-He looks past his shoulder-
....Is there really food in there?? You're not bullshitting me? I'll kick you in the balls if you're bullshitting me!
"You will do no such thing as that!"
Don't try me, gramps, it's what I do liars!
And thieves! And assassins! And street thugs! And people I don't like!
"I can assure you that I'm not on that list- go! Eat!"
-He slowly lets go of his shoulders, narrowing his eyes and giving him the "I'm watching you" gesture before DASHING inside-
-Up on the roof, a young lady in a white wedding dress and white veil is...-
-...Swinging a bamboo sword?-
-She's quiet, simply staring off into the horizon with those blank eyes, as she does...-
...What're you doing up here?
-Said the Lad stepping onto the roof, eyeing her curiously-
-She stops after a swing, and slowly turns to look at the Lad.-
-...It looks like she's looking through you, rather than at you.-
"Training... I've been told to continue swinging until it's no longer feasible..."
...Training for what? What do you get from swinging a stick in place like that? Upper body strength?
"...I'm uncertain... but I know that it is the first lesson I have received... For me to dance with blades, I must begin here..."
-So... she has no idea why she's supposed to do this, but apparently she's supposed to.-
Doesn't look like any dance I've seen before....You sure you aren't being taken for a ride?
"The dance of warfare... That is the dance I seek..."
-A small hint of... sadness, perhaps, is present in her tone. However, it remains distant and dreamy, as well.-
"For one must learn the flow of the wind when one cleaves through the innocent with their blade..."
Outside - Lighthouse (RESERVED) (Aichi)
-Aichi's on his way to the lighthouse to visit Shantae. Things have been better since she and Scuttle Town were saved, but it still feels a little chaotic...-
-Between having to think about everything involving Starline and Eggman, discuss the happenings with Leon (Who has promised to keep an eye open about anything involving Starline and sensing any kind of peculiar 'winds'), trying to figure out how to go about the arrival of Wendy and her Servant, Caster, and still unwinding from the whole thing... well, Aichi hasn't had much chance to talk to Shantae.-
-Ah, the lighthouse is right up there!-
-Up to the door, and...-
-...Knock, knock, knock.-
-The door opens slightly when he knocks-
-...He can hear faint snoring from inside-
-He... hears snoring...-
-Oh dear, is she sleeping?-
"Hello...? I'm coming in...!"
-He gently opens the door, and equally gently closes it behind him.-
-Itís coming from the second floor - thereís a ladder leading up-
-Carefully up the ladder he goes!-
-Ack, hopefully he's not going to be bothering her...-
-She might need the rest...-
