[Thursday | 7 June | Mid-Day]  
[Wherever you are in the city, if you're in the know, then you're getting a signal from a scanner. A different scanner than you're probably used to.]

I realize this morning has been chaotic, but we need everyone who can come immediately to the base to do so. We need to regroup and get ready for the last battle, things have become very dire.

I, ah, apologize for telling you all so informally as a message of this sort, but, there is no easy way for me to say this.

Chiharu Miyagi - Paru, as most of you know her - has died.


[Needless to say, the tone in the base is bleak, but the group has been called together none the less, to plan, to prepare, and to mourn.]

Em. It's Kuzuki.

I just got a call from a fucking hospital- What the fuck went down, Isao?! Where's Paru?!
Kuzuki Isao: there's only one escape nowsometimesidrive on July 10th, 2011 07:24 am (UTC)
We had some people - random people, other users, civilians - go hostile, start attacking people. Only way to get them to stop is to reason with them. Paru got attacked doing that, and, she didn't have her shield up...

...Em, I'm sorry.

... Oh god. I wasn't there for her. I wasn't fucking there.
Kuzuki Isao: another lie seems just a self-deceptionsometimesidrive on July 10th, 2011 07:35 am (UTC)
Don't -- don't blame yourself. None of us could get there in time. Chieko was already there and she's losing it because she couldn't do anything to stop it.

Em, I know you wanna come get whoever's responsible, but, please, wait a couple days. There's some goddamn psycho out there, with some way of warping reality. If we lose, Raitou might be gone in a couple hours, and you'd be the only one who'd ever knew we all existed.

[The phone audibly creaks in her grip...

Emily rests her head against the wall.]

You lose to that pyscho and you're gonna pray to disappear before I get there. Got it? You've got a couple of days.

I promise. Go schedule a flight now, and I promise I'll tell you everything - including how that fucker died screaming - over dinner at Hagakure.

[There's a pause on the line, like he's debating if he should even say this...] And Em?
spelldapowah on July 10th, 2011 07:50 am (UTC)
Yeah?

...As fucked up as the situation is, it's still good to hear from you.

[Laughs, hollowly.]

Don't forget to smash their kneecaps.
Kuzuki Isao: it seems you often forgetsometimesidrive on July 10th, 2011 08:02 am (UTC)
[Chuckling, equally darkly.]

Yeah, but I'm leaving that part outta the story, 'cause you still owe me a wedding gift.

If I showed up, she mighta run away with me.

Fujiwara an' you? She mighta run after ya with a sword, Em, but that's 'bout it.
