[Episode] Is that a Meito?! Empty [Episode] Is that a Meito?!

Sat Oct 02, 2021 1:13 pm
Quest Name: Is that a Meito?!
Quest Category: Episode
Player Participants: Yumiko (-1), Rias (+1)
Planned Location(s): North Blue, Notice
Planned Time Range: 11 February, 1829. One day after the events of "Dinner's Served!"

Summary: While recovering from a harrowing encounter with an elderly woman and her cooking prowess, Yumiko takes time to explore Notice on her own. During her self-proclaimed scouting mission, she comes across a suspicious and inapproriately dressed individual who is in possession of a priceless Meito from Wano. After determining that the invidiual is, beyond a reasonable doubt, a thief and a pretender, the samurai takes it upon herself to retrieve the precious blade.

Rias, meanwhile, finds her average day interrupted by a strange woman making wild and rather rude accusations. Her words simply won't get through to the stranger. An argument soon escalates into a wild chase. The commotion is enough to gain the attention of local Revolutionaries, who decide that the woman wielding a legendary blade would be much better as an ally than a prisoner for the Marines. Chaos ensues.

Samurai. For many it was just a term to describe a warrior from Wano country. However, for some it carried serious weight. It was far more than a mere title to be used haphazardly. To be a true samurai, one had to meet many requirements, like sufficient honor and right gender. Furthermore, it was a strict way of conducting oneself in daily life. A samurai did not feel fatigue, hunger or fear.

...But even a samurai could suffer from indigestion.

Such was Yumiko’s blight, as she slowly wandered along the busy streets of Notice. She clutched her stomach, nearly doubled over. Her fair skin was even paler than usual, with a hint of green. She gritted her teeth, trying to choke down the pained groans. Beads of sweat dripped down her brow. Her vision swayed.

Facing that old woman... had been a mistake...

The weasel woman’s current predicament was all her own fault. ...Well, perhaps she also placed some blame on Ryoichi for dragging her into the situation. Nevertheless, she was the one who had so brazenly accepted the challenge. And now she paid the price in the most agonizing way she had ever experienced. It felt like there was a stone in the stomach, weighing her down.

In stark contrast to the suffering samurai’s serious visage, all around her people smiled, chatted and even laughed. High above, the sun smiled with them and the playful breeze danced around them. The weather was nothing short of wonderful. It would’ve been a shame to waste it inside.

The Commander desperately eyed the store signs around her. Apothecary, apothecary, apothecary... Gah, there had to be at least one here somewhere! She didn’t dare to waste the ship doctor’s valuable time and medicine with her meager troubles. As a proud warrior, she would fix her own mistakes.

Rounding a corner rather carelessly, the weakened woman accidentally stumbled right into someone. She staggered backwards, falling painfully onto her behind. Her currently non-existent tail curled in agony. The imaginary stone rolled in her gut, threatening to burst through her throat. Urgh...

Upon recovering from the impact, the warrior Immediately scampered onto all fours and slammed her head against the pavement. “This one apologizes a thousand times for bumping into thee!” Blood trickled from her forehead, as she carefully lifted her gaze from the cobblestone to look the stranger in the eye.

Wait, did her eyes deceive her, or was that...?

[Episode] Is that a Meito?! Empty Re: [Episode] Is that a Meito?!

Sun Oct 03, 2021 4:52 am
From South blue to East blue and then all the way to North blue. It has been a long journey for the young lady about to take a step onto the island from the traveling ship. Notice... An odd name. What is there to even notice? Other than a beautiful port city with a bustling economy... Not much. Despite that, the young lady had her light blue eyes light up as she saw the port side stalls leading into the city full of different kinds of goods.

Swiftly from stall to stall, she moved her hands on different goods to check on each and every one of them that piqued her interest. "So many things!" a happy toned remark escaped her lips, followed by a wide smile. A sudden break was pulled as she then stopped by one of the stalls. "Look at this. So silky smooth! Almost like the one I have right now!". She was, of course, happily talking about the cherry pink silky scarf, similar to which she had gently over her shoulders.

Yes... That's what she needs to get, even if she already has one. It was time to haggle. A shock! The price was given to her by the middle-aged vendor. "Whaaa? Five hundred berries?". It actually seemed to be a fair price, considering it's a silk scarf... But the travels... They had eaten a lot of the budget. Oh, what to do... What to do... The scarf is what she wants.

Arms slowly moved and folded slightly above her stomach area. With absolutely no "intention" and all due to a "mistake", the arms were enough to amplify her chest powers and push the cleavage up a bit more. A dangerous thing to do, especially due to her already loosened up and revealing kimono... But, it felt, as if she had already done it before. "Awww mister vendor... Is there any way you could do a bit fairer price for the young lady here? What I have right now is already very old. This pink color compliments my skin really well." Aaaaaaand the seduction techniques had entered the game. But they were used for a good cause!

After a short haggle of both putting up their best... Rias her seduction... And the vendor his resistance. Rias walked away with the discount of a hundred berries! It ain't much... But it's an honest worked-out deal... Right? The "sweet" victory had to be celebrated... And time had to be killed... And the back pain had to be relieved. It was now time to find a small cafe place to kick back and relax until the ship was about to leave once more.

After having reached a certain corner of the street, she could suddenly feel a soft bump into her... Airbags. She looked down and blinked at the young lady, who now at that point was already down on her knees with forehead against the ground, apologizing. A gesture that had not been unseen... Having grown up on the Karate island... But one that she really did not like that much.

The hands moved to try and help the apologizing young lady up from the ground. "No need to apologize. You did not get hurt, did you?" Rias, while being unintentionally too close, just her chest making up a lot of distance, being against the lady, she would try and pat the lady clean of dust. Little did she know at this point, that she is a part of the group that she has seen inflict more harm than take it away from the people.

Indeed, the samurai’s eyes did not deceive her. The stranger before her was wearing a kimono as well. Seeing just the dark hem was enough for her to recognize the cloth that reminded her of home. Slowly her gaze trailed upwards, studying familiar sight. Ah, the color and the cut were in the style of-

The line of thought was slashed short.

Yumiko’s jaw dropped. In a heartbeat, her pale cheeks flushed red enough to challenge a tomato. The cold composure melted away. She recoiled backwards, nearly stumbling again. Her trembling hand aimed a sharp, shaky point at the stranger. “C-cover thy shame!” She barely managed to blurt it out through the shock. It was a highly inappropriate way to wear a kimono! How had this brazen woman dared to leave home looking like that?!

Embarrassed for both of them, the marine swiftly averted her gaze. “Nay. A samurai does not get hurt by something like this.” ...She vehemently claimed, while still clutching her gut. The aching had gotten worse... Or maybe it was just her poor tailbone protesting by radiating waves of pain across her waist.

Warm blood continued to trickle, painting a red streak across the samurai’s blushing features. She didn’t notice. Her mind was preoccupied by the string of strange reveals. A kimono, a peculiar blade, a strange twinge piercing her heart at the sight of...

Wait, a peculiar blade?

The swordswoman’s attention suddenly focused on the captivating sword at the stranger’s hip. “Thy blade looks sharp...” She mused quietly. While she was by no means an expert in swords, she did have a certain eye for them. An instinct. She could tell a worthy weapon at a glance. And this one seemed... unusual.

Finally, Yumiko managed to gather her courage and composure enough to glance up at the stranger. She could only hope the brazen woman had found enough sense to close that... that... shameful display window!

Would immediately move her hands once again, this time though, she aimed to grab a hold of Yumiko's own Kimono to stop her from falling back again. "Is everything okay? You look like a tomato." she blinked at Yumiko who she had managed to stop from falling, only to see her blush up like the aforementioned tomato. Now, this could mean a couple of things.

The first thing that Rias thought, of course, was that Yumiko did not feel too well... Another one, that Rias in reality was perfectly aware of, was the fact that to help her out before, she had to simply push the pair of hers against Yumiko so she could reach to clean the dust all around her clothes... What remark followed after the thoughts had run through her mind was... Shocking, to say the last.

"Huh? What shame? What's there to be ashamed of?". She moved her hands behind her back, just above her buttocks. This motion managed to push her chest even further. Was she mocking Yumiko? Was she perfectly aware of what Yumiko meant by "shame"? Who knows? What matters is that she questioned Yumiko... And a proper question at that.

After questioning her, she could see her holding her stomach again. It seems that she did get an answer to one question after all. She was feeling sick after all! Hence why she looked like a tomato for a moment. Perfect. Now it was time to find a solution for the young lady's problem. Please. Allow me to treat you to a warm beverage, or milk, or something that would make you feel better."

But it seemed weirdly clear unless proven different, that the woman she was trying to help out did not want it that much... Instead, the topic seemed to slowly and quietly be redirected to her blades, towards which Yumiko seemed to react with a gentle pinch of enthusiasm. "Hmm? Oh, the blade. Yes. A well-crafted blade is sharp and stays like this for a while.". She had a broad smile on her face now. Someone who seemed to share the interest in the blades. Not a rare sight... But not so common either. But this should have been foreseen by Rias. Yumiko is seeming to be wearing a sword herself.

"I bet yours is quite sharp aswell." she returned the compliment to the fellow swords enthusiast. A nice exchange of good faith. A samurai way? Perhaps. Key difference in this case is... Rias did not identify herself exactly as a samurai.

Slowly... Carefully... Yumiko’s gaze crept upwards... Only to find the offending window still wide open. “Gah!” She recoiled with a startled gasp. D-did they get bigger just now? Nay, it was not possible. Had to be just a trick of posture. Briefly she pondered something very rude about this shameless woman possibly being part cow.

Much to the Marine’s growing frustration, the oblivious questions made it clear this poor soul was several syllables short of a Haiku. “No, everything is not okay!” She clarified vehemently. Honesty was a virtue she embodied. “Thou should be ashamed of t-t-t-thy... b-b-” But there were certain things she simply couldn’t say.

The mere offer of more to drink made Yumiko’s stomach churn. It interrupted her stammering. The pink blush found a friend from a green tint. “N-no thanks...” She tried to politely push the offer aside. There were far more pressing matters at hand. Matters of dignity and modesty!

Even discussing swords was only a distraction. “Nay, mine is nothing glamorous, merely a blade rescued from the scrap.” ...One that the swordswoman briefly fell for. As soon as she realized the fact, she shook her head vehemently. “But that is beside the point!” She couldn’t believe she got caught up in the odd stranger’s pace like that... Like getting tricked and side-tracked by a playful kitsune.

Suddenly, with practiced swiftness and grace, the samurai yanked off her kimono. “Here, cover thyself!” She tried to cast it over the shameless woman’s shoulders like a protective blanket. If Rias didn’t avoid it, she would end up wrapped like a cheap burrito. The samurai was persistent too, willing to chase her target several steps before getting the hint.

Only once the stranger was sufficiently covered up, or out of reach, the Wano woman finally stepped back. With a stern stare, she flew right into a motherly sisterly lecture. “Thou should be more aware of how thou conduct thyself! Women should dress modestly and not walk around showing so much skin.” She fumed, while wearing naught but a hakama and white wrappings around her chest. Then again, with bindings that tight, she could’ve almost passed for a man...

Meanwhile, the constant commotion was gaining idle attention from the surrounding crowd. Many curious eyes focused on the two women. Questions were murmured back and forth. What was going on? Was it an argument? And why did one of them tear her shirt off?

"Ashamed? Of what?" she blinked, looking rather... 'Innocent', with her bust pushed up with her straight back as she was. At this point, it was obvious for Rias what Yumiko kept on meaning. Hey, there was no shame in one's body... Especially when one looks so young and beautiful. Evolution had given Rias a weapon... Would be a shame if she did not use it.

There, of course, was a different reason for it too. It ain't always so easy to carry such weight around. And to have something squeezing them together ain't always the best thing to do either. Why not let it loose a bit then? Before she could start her explanation to Yumiko... It seems the conversation got sidetracked once more. Yumiko really seemed to have a tendency to get sidetracked easily. "I don't see it as a bad thing at all. If a weapon can be given a new life... Why not give it. One person's scrap is another person's treasure.". This was followed by a sweet smile. Her enthusiasm for weapon conversation was only increasing... Until Yumiko got back on the track.

"Wait, what are you..." she kept on blinking and taking a step back when Yumiko was yanking her own kimono off of herself... Only to now reveal even more skin herself now. Shameful display! Or as Yumiko would say. Without too much resistance and only a couple of steps backward and some handwaving. Rias would have the kimono thrown around her... Wrapped like the aimed cheap burrito.

What followed was an odd lecture from a woman who was still a complete stranger with a stomach ache to Rias. All of the talks about not revealing so much skin sparked a grin and an opportunity to throw a snarky comment at her. "What about yourself? Miss wear more things yourself. I wear my kimono like this because it makes it easier for me, besides I can show my things... What about you yourself?"... The last part is aimed at the rather... The flat picture on Yumiko's chest. A low blow... Maybe... But so is Yumiko's attempt to teach someone how to dress. It seems the scene was in full motion... And the townspeople either enjoyed it... Hated it... Were confused by it...

While the two swordswomen argued, they gained more than just a curious glance. On a distant rooftop, a spyglass focused on them with a fleeting glint. A shadowy figure shifted, trying to get comfortable on the tiling. It let out a pondering, masculine hum.

“Hey, take a look at this. What do you think?”

Another shady silhouette stirred. The spyglass traded hands. Soon, a set of pearly whites twisted into a lecherous grin. “Ooohhh yeahhh, that’s what daddy likes... Look at that sleek black barely hiding the best parts... Curves just the way I like it... I would give anything just for one night alone with-” The questionable praise was cut short by an annoyed huff.

“Yes, yes, but what about the sword, you dolt?”

An incredibly awkward pause ensued. The two shadows exchanged a strange look. “...I am talking about the sword. What are you talking about?” The second one defended himself, much to the silent, slack-jawed shock of the first. Since there was no response, the shadow went back to peeping.

“Anyway, it’s kind of hard to tell from this distance, but I think that might be a...”

Ah, hold that thought. Things were getting heated down on the streets. It didn’t take eavesdropping to hear the exchange. Words were being flung back and forth with growing intensity. And a very particular one struck a nerve.

Yumiko’s left eye twitched and teeth gritted. How could a single word hold this much cutting power...? “I am not a miss, I am a samurai!” She snapped on pure reflex. Holding her head high, she placed a hand to her flat chest. “So ‘tis completely different for me! A samurai is dressed as long as he has his blade.” She unflinchingly insisted.

The Marine aimed a sharp point at the shameless scoundrel. “Showing thy ‘things’ is precisely the problem. Thou should be more mindful of how thou present thyself.” She couldn’t stand women who flaunted their looks. Preying on the weakness of men... It was trickery of the worst caliber!

Wagging a scolding finger, the samurai kept lecturing the wrapped burrito. “For starters, kimono is a cloth of tradition. It represents modesty and purity.” Folding her arms, she stared intensely. “To bare the skin beneath is the same as casting away thy modesty entirely. Thou were practically nude.” A firm nod underlined the dramatic (and incredibly old-fashioned) claim.

Hypocrisy, thy name is Yumiko.

"Miss samurai why are you assuming I am not a samurai aswell? I carry a sword on my hip just like you. By your logic, I can wear whatever I want as long as I have a sword on next to me!" hypocrisy... Thy name is Yumiko... Has been called out on. The conversation seemed to be heating up. Rias was simply still standing there on the spot, wrapped up like a burrito still.

It seems both sides had plenty of things to say... In Rias's eyes, she was but a victim who simply had to defend her honor from the loudmouth miss samurai. "Ninety percent of me was covered in clothes how was I naked? Who says I am not pure? What counts as pure." at this point, Rias was about to move a bit in her burrito wrapping. She was not panicking, but she slowly, but surely, was beginning to start feeling weird about this entire ordeal. She had seen some stuff happening... But this definitely was new.

She very slowly moved her hand inside the burrito wrapping, trying to move the left hand towards the handle of the blades that was on her left hip. After a small stand-still struggle, she managed to grab the handle and very gently move the blade upwards a bit. And that was all she needed.

The little bit pulled out razor-sharp blade was enough to cause a gentle cut on the wrapped up Yumiko's kimono. The holding strength of the binding piece of cloth was gone. All Rias needed now was to struggle a tiny bit more to tear the burrito wrapping kimono off of her, tossing it down on the ground.

"Uhh-Ohh miss, seems like your kimono is gone and now you stand here more naked than I am." a playful grin appeared on her sweet lips as she looked at the real half-naked whose name is Yumiko, standing in front of her. "If you want, I can lend you mine? It would be a bit big on you but it would work well."

Mon Oct 18, 2021 8:54 am
It was only natural that having found a weakness, the foe would target it mercilessly. Yumiko was no stranger to such underhanded tactics. Usually she could harden herself against insults and let them slide off of her cold confidence. However... Certain words pierced right through the icy barrier and stabbed at the soft heart within.

And the foe was relentless with her verbal blade.

Each slash carved deeper and deeper into the warrior’s composure. Slowly her fingers curled, balling into trembling fists. She gritted her teeth, trying to cage the furious words within her mouth. Yet when the pressure became too much to bear, some broke free. “I do not assume. ‘Tis a fact.” She was in no state to elaborate though. Not quite yet...

The samurai glared quietly, as the brazen woman disrespected both the cloth she had been given and the blade she carried. Such a beautiful weapon in the hands of a scoundrel... She couldn’t stand it. “Stop pretending to be a samurai...” Her heart ached... twisted... flared with a strangely painful flame. “And stop calling me a miss...” It was too late, she could feel her voice growing to an angry shout.

“Women cannot be samurai!”

The shout echoed across the street, leaving a grim silence in its wake. Yumiko trembled. Her voice wavered weakly. “It takes more than a blade to be a samurai... I cannot expect a villain such as thee to understand...” Her head drooped. The long locks of hair cast a shadow over her features. Something glimmered softly in her eyes... Before she hastily wiped them. “But I cannot let thee get away with this either!” Right, she had a duty to uphold.

Aiming a dramatic point at the pretender, the samurai raised her head and her voice again. “By the power granted to me, I, Kamaitachi no Yumiko, place thee under arrest!” She had tried the easy way, now they were doing this the hard way. “Thou stand accused of indecent exposure, possession of stolen goods and obstruction of justice!” This individual was, beyond a reasonable doubt, a scoundrel, a pretender, perhaps even a thief. It was her duty to bring her to the correct path. By force, if necessary.

The pointing finger shifted onto the beautiful blade. “Thy ill-gotten goods are forfeit!” There was no way this brazen villain had gotten that sword honestly. Fueled by righteous fury, the warrior brought her hand to the grip of her own blade. “Surrender now or face the consequences.” There was something to be said about a road paved with good intentions...

Meanwhile, the silhouettes on the distant rooftop sprung into action. “Oh, this ain’t good.” One of them muttered, while the other nodded quickly. There was a hasty shove. “Move it, chowderhead. We need to bail out that babe and her blade, pronto.” Moving in well-practices and nearly synchronous panic, the mystery duo promptly fell down from the roof. Trash cans clattered in the alley below.

[Episode] Is that a Meito?! Empty Re: [Episode] Is that a Meito?!

Wed Oct 20, 2021 10:25 am
"And who said I was pretending? I am not a samurai, not at one point did I say I was. Yet you still are assuming that I pretend to be a samurai." Rias remained standing in front of Yumiko, however, she now wouldn't be pushing her chest forward simply to expose it more. She would stand regularly, with her left hand resting on the tip of the sword handle. She began to squint her eyes as Yumiko kept on yelling at her and throwing around weird facts and accusations... Until eventually flew in a sentence which proved one thing to Rias...

Yumiko is... A weird fool. A woman cannot be a samurai? What kind of law is this? Perhaps it is a law somewhere... But who says what a woman can and cannot be in this part of the world? And yet, Rias is astonished as Yumiko kept on saying that women cannot be Samurai... And yet it was quite obvious... "Miss, you yourself are a woman! How are you contradicting yourself?! the tension was getting higher. Two women face to face. It was at this point where Rias's own facial expression began to grimace... Especially after the big reveal... And accusations.

"So... You are a marine, huh?". An icy stare looked at Yumiko. It did not feel like a betrayal... But it did feel like a weird and hurtful blow. One would have expected her not to be a Samurai... But life surprises. A playful chuckle was then let out by Rias. "Under arrest? Me? For what? On what grounds? What am I exactly being accused off of? Indecent exposure? Last I checked as long as I am not running naked, I cannot be put under arrest. As a matter of fact, you are more likely to get arrested right now lady. Secondly, what stolen goods? Which part of my possession is stolen? Unless you planted something on me, your accusation is false! Thirdly! I never obstruct justice. she then turned herself around to face the spectators of this encounter turned debate turned argument turned arrest.

"I have seen this before! This is not the first time the marines act like this! The corrupt government thinks they are better than everyone else. They steal from people, they arrest them if they don't like them. They do what they want. I have seen too much bad from them and too little good. I am currently the victim here for being arrested for doing nothing wrong!" With a loud tone, Rias was there, trying to convince the spectating townsfolk to see the flaws of the marines. While Rias herself, was perfectly aware, that these kinds of marines aren't everywhere, they are still out there. Right now, however, it was a perfect moment to call out on it. Perhaps even use this as a distraction for something.

"Miss. You are not arresting me for I have done nothing wrong. I shall not face any consequences because there is nothing to face... Unless you will now show the towns people how the marines actually are.". Rias lowered herself a bit with bowing to be in the head height with Yumiko as she was talking with lower and yet still hearable tone to townsfolk, with a playful grin on her lips. "What will you do now?"

[Episode] Is that a Meito?! Empty Re: [Episode] Is that a Meito?!

Thu Oct 21, 2021 10:42 am
Akin to glass meeting a sledgehammer, the shout shattered Yumiko’s composure. She was used to hearing many kinds of insults from villains, but this one always cut the deepest. Before the pain even fully registered, she already snapped back. “I am not a woman! I am a SAMURAI! Her voice wavered with a mixture of fury and desperation. She was trying to convince herself as well.

But the doubts gnawed at her like hungry rats...

Deep down, the samurai knew her accusations were just an excuse, born from anger. Her honest soul fought back, refusing to accept this result. The accused was right, the charges carried no weight. And yet... Despite all that... Her honor demanded compensation for the wounds it had been inflicted!

The weasel woman grit her teeth, trying to find something, anything to say. What would her superiors do...? Well, her first Captain would have told her to ‘kill them all and let God sort them out, or something’. Okay, a bad example. Sir Anton would have... Her cheek throbbed with a sudden sting of phantom pain. She flinched. Not exactly a good example either. Then... What could she do...?

“My duty.”

The answer to the dangerous question was swift and simple. A villain who had no respect for rules or people couldn’t be allowed to run free. This woman... was no different from a pirate. Thus Yumiko drew her blade and exhaled a gust of wind... The doubts were silenced by unflinching focus. Right or wrong, this was her role. To maintain peace.

By any means necessary.

Just then, something whizzed from the nearby alleyway. Yumiko barely managed to pull her head out of the way, as a crossbow bolt sank into the brick wall next to her. She raised her sword, only to get engulfed in a blast of purple, blinding smoke. People shrieked and coughed.

Two figures burst out from hiding. One of them dashed over to the busty swordswoman and offered a leather-gloved hand. “Come with me, if you want to leave.” The manly voice requested sternly. Another more nasally voice immediately grumbled at this. “Live, you dolt. It’s live.” It was followed by quiet muttering, something about being paired up with an imbecile.

However, before the two heroic souls could make a daring escape, a whirlwind formed out of nowhere and blew the smoke away. The woman of winds aimed a threatening glare at the duo. Recollection sparked in her gaze. “Thou are...” Yes, she had seen them... In bounty posters!

“The Marine Hunter, Van Talling.”

The tall, leather-clad man tipped his wide-brimmed hat mockingly. “In the flesh!” He took aim with his crossbow, finger nearing the trigger. Numerous daggers gleamed in the holsters of his trenchcoat.

“And the Mad Chemist, Doctor Yes.”

The short, bespeckled man in a lab coat scoffed. “Oh, you’ve heard of me? Flattering. His tone was as venomous as the colorful liquids sloshing in the vials that lined his belt.

Yumiko took a stance, brandishing her blade. “Aiding and cooperating with the Revolutionaries is a serious crime.” She felt almost... relieved... that she finally had a proper crime to act upon. “Guardian Knights, form up!” On her command, uniformed marines rushed to the scene, some still carrying shopping bags or lunch sandwiches. Duty tended to call at inconvenient times.

[Episode] Is that a Meito?! Empty Re: [Episode] Is that a Meito?!

Today at 8:45 am
It seems that at the end of the day, in Rias's eyes... The bad outweighs the good. It was clear that despite Rias being right all along about the situation and that Yumiko had no reason to arrest her, she still seemed to result to it... Going as far as drawing her blade. "I remain right after all this time." Rias said after a soft sigh.

She solidified her footing on the ground, rested her left hand in the scabbard while the right hand moved towards the handle of the katana. It was starting to seem clear. This wasn't a conflict she could avoid. As much as she had wanted to step into many unfair treatments she had seen in her life... She has managed to hold herself back... The feeling... Of weakness. She is but a woman who just not too long ago left her hometown... How can she go against multiple people like this? This time, however, it was different.

This time, it was her who is at the unfair treatment end. And that... Is what she cannot stand. Be it a marine, a pirate, or anyone else in this case... They all would meet the same treatment from her. Slowly, she began to draw her Katana out of the scabbard, but it could then be seen, that it technically is two katanas. With a sharp eye, one could see a tiny gap between the blades... But no gap on the handle. The extremely sharp and beautifully crafted blade was halfway drawn out when the sudden bolt flew past her.

She immediately took a few quick stances backward after the bolt had almost hit her. What the hell was that?! That question got answered when a pair appeared near her... Followed by a rather, cheesy, one-liner, which even then got butchered, technically. But what they said seemed to carry some weight. The warrior's eye of Rias had warned her. Yumiko was not the marine she could take on herself... Too dangerous... She was not ready for it. Perhaps it was best to pick up on their offer.

It was only a matter of time after it was revealed who they were. Yes... Wanted men... And what's more... Revolutionary at that. Yes. She had heard of them. A group of people, standing up for the rights of the people themselves... Purging the world of corruption and injustice. It was almost like the higher deity had heard of her "call" for help in this situation. But was it really one she should take? She was not involved with them... And considering they were quite outnumbered... Perhaps it was best not to get involved. But it was an opportunity.

"I have no involvement with them... But thank you boys for coming for the rescue." she had a playful smile on her face, but then slowly and surely, she was backing away... Slowly trying to blend into the watching crowd... Only to then try, and disappear from the scene... It was her fight... Yes... But it clearly was not one she could win.
