Sera And Yanmei

[05:40] <Yanmei> [12:06] <Yanmei> [The man nodded, slightly starry-eyed - and then paused, trying to actually think about it. "Um. Red hair, with a daughter? There was a guy like that, but he had two girls with him. He was asking about our petting zoo, I thinkā€¦?"]
[05:40] <Yanmei> [12:11] <Sept> "Ahh. Well, thank you. Looks like we'll just have to follow the trail, then?"
[05:40] <Yanmei> [12:13] <Yanmei> "To the petting zoo, then? Thanks~" Yanmei added, giving the guy another grin.
[05:40] <Yanmei> [12:13] <Yanmei> ["Eh? Sure. Come back and eat here when you're finished, yeah?"]
[05:44] <Sept> "Of course. Thanks, again. Let's go."
[05:48] * ZackSleep has quit IRC (Ping timeout)
[05:48] * Yanmei was a little slower to follow, but not by much. There was something about checking out an area with a bunch of smelly animals that didn't really appeal to her much. "You seem awfully gung-ho about this lost parent search," she remarked, glancing over at her partner.
[05:49] * Zack has joined #nervfrance
[05:51] * Zack is now known as ZackSleep
[05:51] <Sept> "I do?" Sera shrugged. "Well… think about it. It's not like anything could've happened to them in a place like this."
[05:54] <Yanmei> "I guess," she said, glancing around. "It's not even that crowded, so finding them should be a simple matter."
[05:56] <Sept> "Yeah. So we can just enjoy the time we have here." He smiled. "Right?"
[06:01] * Aline has quit IRC (Quit: )
[06:02] <Yanmei> "…I haven't been trying too hard," she admitted. "But if you think about it? We were probably sent here to decompress. I should probably try a little harder to enjoy myself?"
[06:06] <Sept> "Is that how you see it? You shouldn't have to -try- to enjoy yourself. If you do it right, it should come naturally. I mean, I can't know, maybe that's what works for you."
[06:16] * Yanmei shook her head. "Sometimes. It's like… hm. Like, keeping an open mind, I guess? It's easy to refuse to let yourself have fun, especially in a place like this. But if I keep my eyes peeled, maybe I can spot something that resonates with me."
[06:18] <Sept> "Hah, right. We've got time if you want a detour. But I guess we'll check out the petting zoo for now?"
[06:20] <Yanmei> "Right." She nodded. -
[06:22] <Yanmei> They heard the petting zoo before they spotted it. There was the sound of squealing little kids, and the occassional hen cluck or sheep baa. -
[06:26] <Yanmei> The entrance was marked by a tall hedge and a wooden archway with a sign on it that read "Mystic Island's Pirate Petting Zoo". A tall, lanky fellow in the standard striped pirate uniform stood there, greeting people. He wasn't alone - some people in more casual polo shirts and shorts were also doing the same. They wore nametags with the Mystic Island logo on it. -
[06:27] <Yanmei> "Animal handlers?" Yanmei guessed.
[06:29] <Sept> "I guess? I wouldn't know what goes on at these kinds of places." Sera breathed in deep and nodded. "Let's go." He waved to the staff to attract their attention.
[06:33] <Yanmei> The pirate waved back, cheerfully. "Afternoon, friend! Come to see the vicious pirate animals Mystic Island has on display?"
[06:37] * Sept shook his head quickly. "Looking for a girl's parents. Man, red hair, quite tall, probably came through here. Would you happen to remember anyone like that?"
[06:39] <Yanmei> "Er…" The pirate scratched his bandana'd head. "Sorry, mate. We've gotten a lot of people here today." -
[06:41] <Yanmei> "How tall are we talking about, here?" One of the handlers crossed her arms, frowning in thought. "There was a tall guy that just went in. Head was covered, though."
[06:46] <Sept> "Mmh. Thanks. We can check it out. Right, Yanmei?"
[06:48] <Yanmei> "No choice?" Yanmei tossed her hair. "After you."
[06:57] <Sept> "If you want." Sera advanced, nodding to the pirate and his colleague, into the jaws of the lion. Hopefully figuratively.
[07:02] <Yanmei> The journey, however, was abruptly interrupted by a siren. Colored lights flashed on and off, as soon as Sera passed through the arch. "Oh, hey!" the pirate said. "Wait a minute!"
[07:06] * Sept immediately jumped back from the cacophony, tensing up and glancing around. "What -is- that noise?!" he yelled.
[07:11] <Yanmei> Passing people stared at the commotion, and one or two nearby costumed characterers began to converge on the spot. For her part, Yanmei seemed caught way off guard. The pirate and the handlers were moving in quickly… and they were applauding. "Congratulations, mate!" -
[07:13] <Yanmei> "You're our 130th visitor today!" chimed in a handler. "Congratulations!"
[07:21] * Sept didn't try to hide his ire. "Your what? No, stop that! That doesn't make any sense! And shut off that racket already!"
[07:24] <Yanmei> "Eh?" The pirate looked confused. It was something he was good at. "What's the problem? It's just a door prize."
[07:28] <Sept> "-I'm sure-. That's how it always starts. Whatever it is, you can give it to her." Sera handwaved at Yanmei, and made to escape inside the zoo area.
[07:36] <Yanmei> "Huh? How -what- always starts? Hey, wait, you're supposed to get a huge prize, kid!" The pirate called after him. -
[07:38] <Yanmei> The petting zoo was basically a fenced-in pen, with fairly harmless animal loping around - although most were eying the racket at the front gate and edging away skittishly. -
[07:38] <Yanmei> ^animals
[07:44] <Yanmei> There were a good number of young lambs, goats, some piglets, and various tame fowl. The pen itself was surprisingly clean, with bales of hay arranged here and there like benches. A good number of young children and their parents were inside this pen, trying to make friends with the animals with a little help from some good old-fashioned feed.
[07:44] <Chiisana‘Himesama> However, there was someone else there, too.-
[07:46] * Chiisana`Himesama was sitting by a small gathering of lambs, dressed in a black coat worn over a black sweater and a navy skirt, a white scarf tied around her neck. She was gently petting her new friends, and allowing them all generous helpings of feed. She glanced up at the cacophony, and then returned to her animals.
[07:53] * Sept tried his best not to look back, nor to particularly pay attention to the attention being paid to him. He just tried to make his rounds through the area as quickly as possible without missing anything.
[07:58] <Yanmei> Lots of giggling little kids. No one who was particularly tall stuck out, although there was a man with a hat who was crouching down, petting a goat and talking to a kid of around five years old or so. -
[07:59] <Yanmei> "C’mon, Fred. It's not gonna bite," he laughed. The little boy, kept his distance though, cowering.
[08:03] <Sept> The sight caught Sera's eye for some reason, and he stopped his searches for a moment to look at them. Subtly, of course. It almost reminded him of something.
[08:08] <Yanmei> "I don't like it," the little kid whimpered. "It's scary!" -
[08:09] <Yanmei> "It is…?" -
[08:12] <Yanmei> The man stood up, puzzled, letting the goat go. He was indeed a tall, skinny fellow… and he removed his hat to wipe his brow, revealing a head of blonde hair.
[08:21] * Sept pondered his next move. What if the trail ended here, and Aline and Raphael would get there first..? His headache was coming back, and he could swear the chatter around him was getting louder, but Sera still approached the lone Ayanami.
[08:26] * Chiisana‘Himesama is still petting her sheep. She seems to be genuinely enjoying the relaxing surroundings and the nature of her activity. She looks up at Sera again as he approaches. "Well met, Sir de Pteres."
[08:33] <Sept> "The same..? I was wondering," Wait. No. "I don’t think I remember your name… 'Madam'?"
[08:34] <Chiisana‘Himesama> "Ayanami Chiisana Himesama, although my ’official' name is Shi."
[08:36] <Sept> "I see. Chiisana, I was wondering if you could help me. I'm looking for someone, and they've probably come by here. Do you think you remember any of the people who've been here?"
[08:40] <Yanmei> There was someone quickly approching the pair now. It was Yanmei, and she was carrying something under her arm…
[08:41] <Chiisana‘Himesama> "I daresay I remember more or less everyone who has come to the petting pens."
[08:45] <Sept> "Ah. Great. Have you seen a man, tall with red hair, with one or two daughters with him?"
[08:46] <Chiisana`Himesama> "I’m afraid that no one matching that description has been here."
[08:48] <Sept> "Well, maybe not that tall, then? A fatherly-looking type, anyway."
[08:49] <Chiisana‘Himesama> "I have seen men of many heights with young children. Very few of them had red hair, however. And none of them were taller than perhaps 5’8."
[08:51] <Yanmei> "*Ahem*?" A Yanmei. "Hello, Miss Ayanami. De Pteres?"
[08:52] <Chiisana‘Himesama> "Well met, Madame Zhang."
[08:53] * Sept sighed. "Sorry, Yanmei. I don’t think they came here at all. Looks like the others' plan was the right one, after all."
[08:58] <Yanmei> "Yeah?" She frowned, glancing around herself now. "All this way for nothing? Well… at least if we catch up to them, we can do it in style." She thrust something into his hands. It was a shiny crown, with a skull and crossbones on it. "Take it. It's part of your prize. You get a go-cart and driver, too."
[08:58] <Chiisana‘Himesama> "… What is that?"
[09:00] <Sept> "Wha- -no-. I’m not wearing that. Chiisana, it's just some stupid thing they handed out at the entrance after destroying my eardrums."
[09:01] * Yanmei shrugged. "It's part of what they call the 'Pirate King' treatment? This thing acts like a pass that gets him around lines and makes restaurant staff give him the VIP treatment, and -I'm- not taking it. It's yours, and it looks ridiculous on me, besides."
[09:02] <Chiisana‘Himesama> "Why is it -his-?!"
[09:02] <Sept> "It’s not!"
[09:03] <Yanmei> "Um, he was the 130th visitor to this attraction? So they gave it to him."
[09:03] <Chiisana‘Himesama> "That…" Chiisana frowned. "That is an utterly arbitrary way to dictate the position of royalty! De Pteres, I challenge you to a duel!"
[09:05] <Yanmei> "Wait, what?"
[09:05] <Sept> "That’s what I told them! I mean, I didn't chal- -explain yourself already-!"
[09:07] * Chiisana‘Himesama takes a step back, pulling her umbrella out of her coat. She grabs the middle, and twists it- it clicks, and a second later she pulls out the handle, which contains a long, thin blade. "You are a king, a monarch, but you are also a pirate, and thus, because pirates consider transference of leadership something that can be decided by a trial of arms, I have complete justification in
[09:07] * Chiisana`Himesama challenging you to a duel for your title and riches."
[09:09] <Sept> "We can’t have a sword fight in the middle of a petting zoo!"
[09:10] <Chiisana‘Himesama> "Very well. Then you may, as the challenged, dictate a time and date for the duel to commence."
[09:10] <Chiisana`Himesama> «And place*»
[09:13] <Sept> "Just… argh! Let’s just get out of here first, okay? A moment's goddamn silence…"
[09:18] <Yanmei> "Hey, hey. I'm sure there's someplace we to sit down a while and talk it over." Yanmei started walking backwards, a slow retreat for the entrance again. "A ride or a restaurant of something?"
[09:18] <Yanmei> ^or something
[09:20] <Sept> "Yeah. Or something." Sera rubbed at his face frustratedly, messing up his hair a bit, sighed, and followed.
[09:25] * Chiisana‘Himesama sheathed her blade, turned to her sheep, and curtsied. "Farewell, my friends. Honour calls." Before long she’s following on after Sera and Yanmei, eyeing the Crown.
[09:28] <Yanmei> The hall of history was a domed building a short walk away. No lines, and a single attendent who was actually -sleeping- by the entrance. Within was a museum with lifelike wax statues of various European seafarers, and a fair number of animatronic displays. It was in this place that Yanmei turned around to face those who had followed her. "Now, then. Let's straighten this out, shall we?"
[09:33] <Sept> "Hmmh. Yeah. Look, Chiisana, just take the damn crown, okay? I didn't want it in the first place. I just want to forget about this."
[09:34] <Chiisana‘Himesama> "Are you sure?" Chiisana asked dubiously.
[09:37] <Sept> "No, I’m just screwing with you - of course I'm sure! Even if it could be useful for something, I wouldn't have any way to get it out of here without getting everyone's attention on the way!"
[09:38] <Chiisana‘Himesama> "Well, there’s no need to be impolite about it." Said Chiisana haughtily as she swiped it from his brow, placing it carefully upon her own.
[09:40] <Yanmei> "It looks very nice," Yanmei said, beaming. "Now nobody has to mug anyone else. A happy ending."
[09:40] <Chiisana‘Himesama> "…"-
[09:40] <Chiisana`Himesama> "’Mug'?" Asked Chiisana dangerously.
[09:41] <Sept> "You mean you wouldn't have taken it by force?"
[09:42] <Yanmei> "I mean, take someone else's crown by force?" she hastily amended. "For the sake of honor?"
[09:44] * Chiisana‘Himesama eyes them both warily. "A duel of honour is not a ’mugging'. It is an agreement first and foremost." She folded her arms. "It is good of you to realise your own error before I had to correct you, Madame Zhang."
[09:48] <Yanmei> "Of course," she muttered, warily searching her for that dangerous umbrella.
[09:53] <Sept> "Right. What did you want to do next, Yanmei? We lost track of the guy, but we could keep looking, see if we could find a new lead…" Sera didn't sound particularly thrilled about the plan anymore.
[09:54] <Yanmei> "We could just try to meet up with the others. Maybe take a detour, like you said before?"
[10:00] <Sept> "Yeah, that's… fine. They've probably found the parents already, too. I'm sure we'll find something interesting on the way."
[10:03] <Yanmei> "Hm. What about that weird drop ride you guys were talking about when we were all still together in one big group? Want to check it out?"
[10:06] <Sept> "Hmm? Oh, that. Yeah, I think I'd like to see it. Good idea, Yanmei."
[10:09] <Yanmei> "It's settled, then." She glanced at Chiisana, as if wondering what to do about her, exactly. "Did you, ah, come here with one of your sisters today?"
[10:10] <Chiisana‘Himesama> "I came with Roku, Juu, and her loud ward."
[10:10] <Sept> "Ward?"
[10:11] <Yanmei> "Oh. Chevalier. Wait, they’ve come to an amusement park together?"
[10:11] <Chiisana‘Himesama> "Indeed."
[10:12] <Yanmei> "…so. This counts as a date for them, doesn’t it?"
[10:12] <Sept> "Hmmh. I guess it does. Good for him," Sera nodded.
[10:12] <Chiisana‘Himesama> "Hardly. She is his designated caretaker."
[10:15] <Yanmei> "When did -that- happen? Heh. So that mean’s they'v moved in together too? How scandalous~"
[10:16] <Sept> "But will he have any time for judo, now?"
[10:16] <Chiisana‘Himesama> "He is unable to walk. Judo is the least of his concerns."
[10:17] <Sept> "I don’t think you know Edgar very well."
[10:18] <Chiisana‘Himesama> "I daresay I do not. Regardless, yes, they have moved in together."
[10:20] <Yanmei> "Well, it’s a big park but maybe we'll run into them by chance? Who knows?" She stretched. "Shall we get going?"
[10:21] <Chiisana‘Himesama> "Indeed."
[10:23] <Sept> "…we’re all going?"
[10:24] <Yanmei> "…" Yanmei blinked. "I… guess so?"
[10:25] <Chiisana‘Himesama> "I -am- the Pirate Queen. I may as well use my power to waive us past the queues."
[10:26] <Sept> "I… see. Thank you?"
[10:29] <Yanmei> "Very considerate of you," Yanmei mumbled.
[10:30] <Chiisana`Himesama> "You may lead the way." She says to Yanmei.
[10:36] <Yanmei> It turned out to be a good thing that the Pirate Queen decided to brandish her power. They arrived at the ride just as they were loading it, and the crown allowed them to bypass the tedium of waiting. All the participants for this ride were strapped into harnesses on the sides of a great, circular construct with a very long, thick pole and lots of wires cutting through the center of it. -
[10:37] * Yanmei squirmed a bit, uncomfortably, as staff members checked over to make sure that everyone was secure.
[10:40] * Sept didn’t have much experience with being strapped to the outside of rapidly moving mechanisms, but made a fairly good attempt at keeping his nerves under control.
[10:45] * Chiisana‘Himesama has tucked her crown away somewhere nice and secure. She herself is keeping calm and dignified, strapped in as she is.
[10:49] <Yanmei> After a long while… the attendents drifted over to a nearby control booth, and there was a slight jolt, as the mechanism started to slowly ascend. -
[10:50] <Yanmei> "Hey, de Pteres." There was, of course, time to talk if they wished. Other passengers were doing it excitedly as well.
[10:51] <Sept> "Yeah?" Sera afforded Yanmei only a brief glance before returning to examining the scenery stretching further and further out before them.
[11:00] <Yanmei> "Is attracting attention really so horrible?" There was a better veiw of the crowd below them, though looking directly down while in the harness was awkward. "Like, what you said that door prize incident, and everything, I mean."
[11:05] <Sept> "…Well. Yes, it is. Why do you think I avoid it?"
[11:13] <Yanmei> "Humor me, huh? I’m trying to figure out why it's such a big deal for you." Yanmei looked beyond the immediate crowd and saw more people. "Until now, I've always chalked it up to personality types. But you know, I've never actually -asked- if that was simply the case. It's weird, but if you got embarrassed or something, I get the sense that you'd be able to cope with it pretty quickly."
[11:13] * ZackSleep is now known as Zack
[11:15] <Sept> "Wait. You thought it was because I was… shy?"
[11:19] <Yanmei> "Shyness is often a factor for people who get nervous in front of crowds and avoid mingling in them. But that doesn't make sense here? Not in the way that it would if you were to look at, say, Isaiah or Volkova. That's why it's interesting."
[11:25] <Sept> "…no, you're right. It was never that. I… It's sort of. Deeper than that. I-it's not that seeing people would make me uncomfortable, it's… whenever they were around me, I could always feel it. Feel -them-."
[11:27] <Yanmei> "…ah?"
[11:39] <Sept> "…yeah. You know that Angel thing where they… get in your head and. Make you do things?"
[11:40] <Yanmei> "How could I not?" she muttered.
[11:43] <Sept> "It feels like that."
[11:47] <Yanmei> There was a long pause. "With everyone? Has it always been like that?"
[11:54] <Sept> "Yeah. As long as I can remember, as long as there's enough people. It's… probably by design, I think."
[11:59] <Yanmei> "…" Yanmei fell silent a while. There was another jolt, and a loud metallic *clunk* as the ride reached the top. The entire park was visible now, crowded in some areas, painfully sparse in others, completely drenched in bright, gaudy colors and more than a few lights.
[12:01] <Chiisana‘Himesama> "Oh, I daresay I can see that man of yours, Sir de Pteres."
[12:03] <Sept> "It’s a pretty good view, but Paris has better ones. I should show you some of- what?"
[12:03] <Chiisana‘Himesama> "I said, I daresay I can see that man of yours."
[12:04] <Sept> "From here."
[12:04] <Chiisana`Himesama> "Indeed."
[12:04] <Sept> "He’ll be far gone by the time we get there, of course."
[12:04] <Chiisana‘Himesama> "Not that that means much. I don’t know where he is."
[12:05] <Sept> "How do you see him, then?"
[12:06] <Chiisana‘Himesama> "I don’t, but I daresay that I can see him from up here."
[12:07] <Sept> "I… ugh. I see."
[12:07] * Chiisana‘Himesama chuckled happily.
[12:11] * Yanmei joined in on listening on the latter half that exchange, squinting down into the crowds. If only she could have spotted that guy in the bear costume. And only if he could handily be in a position for her spit on him. Not that she -would-, but it was a nice thought.
[12:16] <Yanmei> And it was a thought that was interrupted by a horrifying rush of vertigo, as the wheel-like thing they were strapped to mercilessly dropped from the sky! Colors blurred. The wind tore at their clothes and hair. The ground rushed up at them, fast!
[12:20] <Sept> Sera’s exhilarated voice was there for a moment, before being drowned out in the noise of the wind.
[12:23] * Chiisana‘Himesama let out a loud gasp at the sudden shift, a gasp that turned into a squeal.
[12:25] * Yanmei had gone completely silent during the fall, holding in her own noises. -
[12:29] <Yanmei> There were screams all around them, of terror and joy alike! It only lasted for a few dizzying seconds. At first it seemed as if they would impact with the ground, but instead they came to a controlled stop at the bottom, the entire wheel mechanism jerking hard.
[12:34] * Sept stayed quiet, except for the heavy breathing. It had been quite a fall.
[12:42] * Yanmei took in a deep, shaking breath… and started giggling. The fall had wrecked her hair, one on her twin pigtails coming completely loose. Her shirt and jacket were more than a little rumpled.
[12:42] * Chiisana`Himesama was looking a little worse for wear. Although most of her hair was alright, the fall had ruined her plaits, and it fell in a cascading sheet around her face and back. Her clothes were looking a little ruffled as well.
[12:42] <Yanmei> ^one of her
[12:43] <Sept> As for Sera’s appearance… he was suddenly very pale, and seemed to be gripping the harness very tightly indeed.
[12:46] <Yanmei> A look at Chiisana… and Yanmei was suddenly giggling much harder. "You… y-you look so silly!"
[12:49] <Chiisana‘Himesama> "You look like a wet puppy-dog!" Replied Chiisana, who was nevertheless fighting her own batch of the giggles. "Sir de Pteres, you should get off before you befoul the seat. You look terrible."
[12:52] <Sept> Sera replied something, but no sound escaped his lips. Moments passed. "Who..?"
[12:57] <Yanmei> The harnesses lifted as one, leaving them to slide out of their seats and make room for the next batch of riders. Yanmei was practically gasping for breath by now. "L-let’s go. De Pteres, you all right?"
[13:04] * Sept turned his head quickly to Yanmei, with eyes not quite seeing her. "Why am I here?" he said, voice a little raspy.
[13:09] <Yanmei> "Huh?" Yanmei stared back. Her smile was dying. At first, she just sat up straight, and then she dropped out of her seat, coming over to his for a closer look. "What do you mean? Hey, Sera… Hey. How many fingers am I holding up?" she held up a fully spread hand.
[13:16] * Sept looked at the hand, moved his head around a bit, kept looking. "It's… five, but none." Beat. "I think something's wrong. C-can you help me find my friend? Freya should know. She was here a moment ago."
[13:18] <Chiisana‘Himesama> "What’s wrong with him?"
[13:21] <Yanmei> "I don't…" Yanmei drew back a moment. "I've no idea." She paused. Tried to collect herself. "All right. We'll find Freya, okay?" she held out a hand to him. "Let's take a walk over to that bench and sit down for a minute first."
[13:28] * Sept allowed himself to be led, a bit like a blind man. "I'm not supposed to be here, am I… This is the wrong place."
[13:30] <Yanmei> "What's… the last thing you remember?" She dreaded to ask it, but she knew she had to anyway. Her phone was already out, but she was focusing on Sept as she walked him over to the bench and sat down next to him.
[13:37] <Sept> "We were going back home… We took a detour to see the parade from the top of the… oh." Sera looked into Yanmei's eyes. "I think I… I f…" Sera blinked. "I know you."
[13:44] <Yanmei> "You do? That's good, that's good!" She looked a little hopeful now. "Where from? Try to think hard."
[13:49] <Sept> "Yanmei…" Sera lowered his eyes slowly. "I'm sorry."
[13:55] <Yanmei> "…" She could guess from what. If his memory really was messed up, and he was thinking back to the last thing he had to be sorry for… "You already apologised to me. I f… I'm not mad at you anymore, okay?"
[13:58] <Sept> "I'm glad. But I don't think you should come here anymore. It'll just make everything harder for me."
[14:01] <Yanmei> "Where is 'here'?"
[14:08] <Sept> "Nowhere. Like it has to be. I can't go anywhere else, I made a promise." He took her hands, suddenly. "I'm sorry. Just… tell Oscar I said hi. I'll be fine here. Goodbye, Yanmei." Sera let go of the hands, laid back on the bench and closed his eyes.
[14:23] * Raphael has quit IRC (Quit: <Mina‘Haplo> ’T' is for Tao, who is Tsundere as hell :|)
[14:29] <Yanmei> "Osc…? Hey, wait!" Who the hell was Oscar? 'Nothing'? Was… was he…? She grabbed his shoulder and shook it frantically.
[14:34] <Sept> For what might've seemed like a relatively long time, depending on Yanmei's state of mind, Sera failed to respond. Until after a few shakes, when he opened his eyes with a gasp. "Ah! What is it? Did I fall asl-ow…" He held his head. "Leggo, my head hurts…"
[14:38] <Yanmei> Alive! Yanmei exhaled shakily, but she didn't let go, still clinging to his shirt sleeve. "Don't just pass out after saying something like that! Who's Oscar? I don't understand!"
[14:39] <Sept> "Oscar? Oscar… "
[14:39] <Sept> "I don't know?"
[14:40] * Yanmei stared. "You don't?" … "Hey. Tell me where you are. Do you remember?"
[14:43] * Sept looked around him, a bit hesitant to take his eyes off Yanmei's, the way they were boring into him. "It's… the amusement park, isn't it? Did something happen?"
[14:43] <Yanmei> "D-do you remember getting on the Drop Ride?"
[15:09] * Rynol has joined #nervfrance
[15:32] <Sept> "I think so..? We talked, and you… o-oh. Yeah. I think I… hey, shouldn't we go meet up with Aline and Raphael? They're probably getting worried." Sera smiled.
[15:38] <Yanmei> "…" Yanmei stared. The tension on her face was starting to give way to something stormier, and her grip tightened on his sleeve. Suddenly, she was shaking him again, this time angrily! "W-where do you get off sounding reasonable all of a sudden after…! Damn it!" She let him go, and stood up abruptly.
[15:44] * Sept laughed, though a bit quietly. "Yeah, let's go." Sera stood up carefully. "I'll be fine," he said.
[15:49] <Yanmei> "You're getting checked over by Clement once we get home, understand?" Yanmei opened her phone, and found Aline's number in her address book.
[16:01] <Sept> "Right, right. We'll worry about that after this."
[16:02] * Yanmei jerked her head in a gesture for Chiisana to follow them, and began to walk. "Hello?" she said into her phone. "Where are you? We're trying to meet back up?"
