OOC: sorry, I seem to have fell asleep waiting for Homura, I’m glad you could continue on.
“I... suppose you’re right. One big event that throws your life into chaos.”
<i>It was an unsettling thought, and for it to be happening now of all times was all the more uncomfortable. The girl stands back up, finishing her sandwich before excusing herself</i>
“It was nice talking to you, but I still have homework to finish.”
<i>Before leaving in a hurry. There were many things worrying the girl, but none of them were the kind that would be easy to talk about with anyone.
Anyone but her senior Kokoro, and even then she’d need to call them in private. For now the only place to head is home</i>
"I'll be fine."
<i>Sen avoids loooking back at Kazuo. His concern is touching in a way, but she's not really used to people asking about her condition.</i>
"It was shocking at first, like diving feetfirst into cold water, but once the surprise goes away it hasn't been too bad."
<i>Sen merely nibbles on her sandwich. She wasn't really hungry to begin with, and now her gaze almost seems to be somewhere far away.</i>
"I'd like to think its the same for everyone."<div class='edited'>(edited by Ally_of_justice)</div>
<i>Sen raises an eyebrow as she looks back to Homura</i>
"I was simply giving a few details about me to help you remember. Isn't that part of your greeting here? After all in a city like this you meet a dozen people a day. it would be hard to try to memorize everything."
<i>Afterwards Sen looks back to Kazuo, honestly somewhat surprised he'd consider their age, given everything that's happening</i>
"Right, I won't be drinking alcohol or anything but perhaps I will try a little."
<i>Sen would approach the collection of food and take a small sandwich, something light in order to not seem rude rather than due to hunger herself.</i>
<i>The highschooler can't help but crack a bit of a smile at Kazuo's suddenly awkward behavior, but she decides against bringing it up again. instead there's the newer kid, Alex who seems to be claiming something?</i>
"You're saying those are your doing?"
<i>Sen points to one of the skeletons asks Alex. It was nice to know that none of the food was poisoned, or at least if it was the kid had some sort of immunity. But that seemed... Less likely the more time she spends talking to him.</i>
"I would feel a bit better without any skeletons breathing down my neck. Metaphorically speaking of course. Seeing as they don't have lungs..."
<i>Sen casts a sideways glance at one of the skeletons, as if worried it would suddenly make a move or something. Not that they'd done anything harmful so far, but it was better to be safe.</i>
"I think you're getting oddly enthusiastic about this."
<i>The way Kazuo shifts from his usual calm demeanor to one of almost child-like excitement is weird, but she also finds it kind of cute to get to see this side of her elder, so the girl plays along.</i>
"Maybe bountiful sunlight or something like that? If its related to the glow then stating it is probably an important part of the name."
<i>while they were discussing the name of Asami's ability, another girl around Sen's age joins the group. Homura's brief introduction reminds Sen that she had never actually introduced herself, much to her shame. So the girl aims to remedy this oversight immediately.</i>
"So it seems you two are acquaintances? I am Sen Megumiba, daughter of the public prosecutor Seishiro Megumiba and member of the student council. Pleased to meet you Homura."
<i>Soon another person that Sen had initially overlooked makes their presence known... And reminds her of the creepy undead that had been gathered for a while. The girl shudders before replying</i>
"Not really, no. These.. Things don't exactly add to the atmosphere. And its impossible to tell what they're really trying to do. Its.. Unsettling."<div class='edited'>(edited by Ally_of_justice)</div>
<i>Sen, that was the girl's name of course. It always was. And she most certainly was not a country girl. Eager to forget that exchange had ever happened, so the girl approaches the spiral door and attempts to open it</i>
"Lets all agree to forget that weirdness that just happened and get back home, alright?"
"You seriously don't have many friends?"
<i>and somehow that was the most surprising thing Sen'd seen all day. She'd always assumed that most active people formed social bonds. That's simply how society worked, and even that nutcase Eito seemed to know some people. To see that her seemingly normal elder was a bit of a loser made her chuckle</i>
"That's even more concerning. You ought to at least talk to your classmates a bit more. Maybe start an occult club."
<i>Sen watches the exchange between Kazuo and Asami, just to be safe. Not that she'd be able to do much, but she'd feel wrong not even trying to look out for the younger girl in case anything happened.</i>
<i>Sen narrows her eyes, not really thrilled about being used as an example, but if it served a purpose there's nothing to be offended about.</i>
"Though I suppose I ought to express concern over your choice of friends."
"You.. No offense but that sounds like something out of a video game. Just finding these generic enemies and getting a weapon out of it."
<i>At least that was the easiest way for Sen to rationalize it. In fact it seems like she's simply started accepting these things, whether it can be considered a good sign or not. Either way the skeletons didn't seem to be harmful, so it can probably be assumed they bear no ill will, but still...
Sen approaches the food before noting</i>
"Even if its not poisoned, if it was set out by skeletons it might not be safe for humans.. It would be better if we could ask.."
<i>but there'd be no need to, as another figure comes out. Sen had some dealings with religion, most of which turned out to be a fiction, yet the way the new person arrives doubtlessly reminds her.</i>
"They appear to be trying to follow the Buddha, or some other brand of holy prophet.
Am I right?"
<i>Sen directs the question at the newcomer, giving them a chance to introduce themselves before considering calling them out.</i>
<i>Sen jumps, snapped out of her stupor by a bony hand on her shoulder. The girl imagined it to be another one of those.. things in the park, but much to her relief it is only Kazuo. The girl lets out a sigh before answering</i>
"Those are skeletons."
<i>as if it weren't obvious enough. Still, the skeletons didn't seem to be harmful, so.. Given that Kazuo's here...</i>
"Is this.. Normal too?"
A City Between
OOC: Sort of just putting this up to see what happens. I don't have any grand plans nor am I entirely sure what'll come, or if anything'll come, but I thought it might be interesting to observe, if nothing else.
IC: <i>Its strange.. Dark. Your memory is hazy, though it feels like you were doing something important, the thought of it eludes you. Though you cannot see, or hear, you feel a dark, powerful presence around you.
Yet in a moment it is gone. Leaving your newfound peace undisturbed. Everything is gentle, yet strange.
For the time, it seems as if everything that makes up yourself is gone. One is left as if floating in a void, only vaguely aware of others around you. Other small, winged creatures like an insect, left drifting half-asleep through their consciousness.
However, you maintain a few strands of identity. A key memory or two from one's life. A fragment of self-consciousness that one could grab onto. An anchor to allow one to pull oneself out of the void, and back to consciousness.
And so, who are you?</i>
