"Hey, be careful in here."
<i>Suzuki flicks her paintbrush in the air again, this time letting the rainbow colored magic fly like a rope at Shinji's sword to bring it down</i>
"I'd rather you didn't break the place."
"Ugh, how vulgar. Don't make comparisons like that."
<i>Suzuki lets out a sigh, shaking her head for a moment. Soon she'd notice a bit of flame coming out. Not exactly what she was hoping for</i>
"enhancement type magic. Rudimentary, everyone can do it. But its not hopeless, even if its your only focus."
“You were in... You’re like 16! And you were out drinking?”
<i>Much as Shino can identify Suzuki, so too does Suzuki identify the person in front of her. But working conditions like THESE. THESE are a shock. Suzuki takes another deep breath before saying</i>
“That’s fine, that’s fine. You don’t need to remember he contract to use it’s associated magic. It should come naturally.”
<i>Suzuki uses the lance she thruster earlier to stick into the ground and use as a springboard to jump over Shino. The older girl lands gracefully, and
takes a deep breath before turning around.</i>
“Your magic, everyone has a magic based on the wish they made to form a contract.”
<i>Suzuki blinks a few times as realization hits her</i>
“You don’t know what Witches are... Have you made a contract with Kyubey? Are you even a real Magical Girl?
<i>Though it May have been forgotten, The unsettling feeling from their first meeting seems to come back</i>
<i>Suzuki grabs her newly formed spear with her left, using it to turn aside Shino's first blow, before similarly parrying the second with her brush. As the girl fights, there's a hint of confusion in the veteran's voice/</i>
"I told you not to hold back didn't I? I need to see your magic to know where to begin."
<i>Finally, the older girl jumps over Shino's third, horizontal strike, thrusting her spear to strike just beside Shino, maybe lightly scratching her student, but with no chance of a serious injury</i>
"I believe the normal term would be sparring? Fighting just sounds crude."
<i>Suzuki lets out a sigh, brandishing her paintbrush with a flourish as the furniture that previously took up much of the room fades away.
As Shinji approaches, Suzuki first flicks her brush through the air, leaving a trail of rainbow-colored light where it passes. Suzuki passes her brush through the air in front of her in a diagonal, letting the light intercept Shinji's blade.
Though the barrier seems thin Shinji would find it to be nearly unbreakable, blocking the first strike with ease</i>
"Simple, but not ineffective. Its impossible to tell what a Witch will do so being able to put them on the defensive is important."
<i>Once Shinji's attack is deflected, Suzuki makes a few more strokes in the air, connecting them to form the outline of a long rod with a pointed tip. The outline seems to fill itself in, bringing a simple, silver spear into being</i>
<i>Suzuki grins and walks back over to the spot on the wall she drew a panel from earlier, her voice perks up a bit as she replies</i>
Suzuki: "I'm glad you're so eager to begin, very well then, for our first lesson..."
<i>Once the tome is stored safely within her secret vault, Suzuki spins around and brings up her left hand, displaying her silver ring with pride</i>
Suzuki: "Show me what you can do then. No need to hold back. I need an idea of where we're starting from in order to determine our next lessons."
<i>A simple, old-fashioned paintbrush emerges from Suzuki's soul gem. The girl holds it calmly, the brush coming out just past the tip of her finger as she waits for Shino to make the first move</i>
<b>Damon, Homura, and Madoka</b>
<i>Risako lets out a relieved sigh, she seems less shaky as she nods to Damon</i>
Risako: "T.. Thanks. I can lead the way. I just.. Needed someone with me is all."
<i>The girl looks back to Homura and Madoka. While she did need to be getting home, it'd be rude to refuse a nice offer like that so the girl simply nods</i>
Risako: "I.. Suppose I could. I'd just need to call home to let them know where I'll be. It.. Should be fine."
<i>Once everything is set, the group would be ready to leave, whether they go together or apart, it seemed their journeys had begun.</i>
<b>Homura and Damon</b>
<i>Risako looks off to the side for a bit, holding onto the hem of her skirt until there's a pause. She'd wait a few more seconds before shaking her head</i>
Risako: "Um.. That's not... I just needed someone to walk me home. Is all.... And with what happened to some of the others...."
<i>Risako falls silent again, looking down towards her feet as she takes another deep breath to steady herself</i>
Risako: "A... Anyways. It's... Fine. I can go.."
<i>Suzuki takes back the book, carefully looking through it. She almost seems to be lost in her own world as she replies</i>
Suzuki: "Well I guess Daisy's kind of like an angel. Its all in her origin story. She's a princess from the Kingdom of Flowers sent on an investigation. I've always loved that kind of story."
<i>Suzuki closes the manga again with a sigh</i>
Suzuki: "Anyways, didn't you still have homework to do?"
“Oh, you’re a fan of her works too?”
<i>Suzuki’s voice raises a bit as she gets more exciting, briefly running her fingers through her hair</i>
“I like to think she just went back home to the Kingdom of Flowers.”
<i>Suzuki goes silent for a few moments, continuing to play with her hair as she thinks.</i>
Suzuki: “Good luck, I’ll call you if I find anything!”
<i>Suzuki waves to the three as they leave. Risako peeks over the couch to watch them leave, until Suzuki clears her throat to get Risako’s attention</i>
Suzuki: “Risako, your escorts are leaving.”
Risako: “O.. Um.. Right.”
<i>Risako doesn’t move for a few seconds, until Suzuki reminds her</i>
Suzuki:”You might want to catch up with them.”
Risako: “Of Course... Of course. I... Sorry.”
<i>Risako stutters as she runs for the door after Damon and the others, leaving Suzuki and Shinji alone</i>
<i>With the others gone, Suzuki let’s out a bit of a sigh as they look back at Shinji with a smile that almost seems forced</i>
Suzuki:”Don’t sell yourself short now. I’ve met many girls in my time so I’m quite adept at seeing potential. Now for our first assignment.”
<i>Suzuki slowly walks towards one of the walls. Once she reaches it she would draw a square on the wall near the Risako painting. with her finger, before removing the panel to reveal a cubbyhole. She reached inside it, and pulls out a small book. </i>
Suzuki: “Its a little late for a full training session, but I would like you to read this. Consider it homework.”
<i>Suzuki walks back over to hand Shinji the book. It’s a colorful manga in excellent shape titled “Magical Daisy”. Suzuki looks away for a bit to hide the excitement in her eyes</i>
<b>Damon and Madoka</b>
<i>As the three head back for the elevator and their way home, they hear a somewhat familiar voice from behind them</i>
Risako: “U.. Um. Wait up! I’m.. Not supposed to go places alone right now.”
<i>When Risako catches up to the first person she’d pause to take a bit of a breather.</i>
The Dream Shop
<i>Welcome to a land beyond your imagination, where all your dreams are certain to come true!
At least, that's what the posters around town said, and what kind of poster would ever lie? The building it led to was unassuming enough, it looked a lot like a simple apartment building on the outside, but inside the door is a long, white, waiting room lined with chairs.
In the middle of the waiting room is a reception desk with only a single, bored-looking teenager manning it.
The girl has short, white hair and is wearing comfortable looking clothes, rather than fancier, business-focused ones.
There's no one else here at the moment, so once you walk in you'd find her sitting at the desk reading manga as she waits.</i>
