Judina
As the tied to the reality of exploring the city herself for the most part, Judina seemed to have stuck to one area and not really explore too much. Thus Judina would now start going other places and not Sakura Ally, Why she had a fondness for that area she was not sure, It was almost like Judina thought would see some one else there, Rather then the two people she met there, Not that she minded at all the experience was nice, Meeting new and interesting people was always helpful to the slightly socially strange Judina, just more people to remember down the road.

Alistair and Judina were just taking a normal and casual walk in the Cabaret Crescent, just a small time to explore while she was here, After all she had to wonder how much longer she wanted to linger around this city. Judina seemed to chuckle to herself for a moment, Realizing just how out of place seemed to be in this city, Having Alistair did not help that feeling on her mind of being out of place, Eventually Judina would most likely get over this feeling, For now it was just on her mind with her and Alistair enjoy the quiet walk they where having.

For a moment Judina stopped for a moment looking around puzzled and perplexed. Like something was watching her in some manner, Or Judina was paranoid about something for no reason, Was some one actually watching her? Was something or some one spying on her for some reason? It was slightly annoying for her but she would just ignore it and continue on her way quietly. Thinking about the days small and tiny Judina would shop with her mother, Such days when she was much smaller then her mother small enough her mother seemed liked a giant.

Masami
"Your friend looks beautiful."

A while ago, Masami went shopping for groceries in the marketplace. He should have been giving this to the theater for them to cook and eat by lunch and dinner times, as always. Even though he had a certain rank that allows him to rest and avoid work, Masami will always be the one who'd do errands and associate with more work, even if he doesn't need to. It just happened that Hosenka City became the new hot-spot in Fiore, and that unfamiliar faces had come for Masami to meet with. However, he has never seen a person who had an actual, gigantic companion like this, and the idea of an adventurer with an animal companion struck him, causing him to blend in the crowd while casually follow the woman and her cat-like companion.

He didn't mean to follow them as much as it would be considered "stalking," however Masami felt that these two recognized the presence of a stalker based on their movements (as much as Masami had observed), thus the boy who was following the two strangers considered directly, and finally talking to them. He uttered a compliment after running and popping right in front of them, he looked at the woman and spoke, referring to the animal companion (although he found the woman appealing as well, but the animal had caught his attention more. "Can it talk?" he asked, looking around the companion's physiology by walking in circles around them. Apparently, Masami rarely saw animals ever since he came to Fiore from Joya, unless we're talking about the marketplace's meat, which is a whole different topic. "What kind of food does it like to eat?!" Masami didn't notice that his voice was amplifying the more energy he brings to his words. Oh well, he was speaking to a woman whom he knew he was older than, thus it wouldn't hurt to act like a child, would it?

Judina
Was what Judina thought was watching her finally revealing it self to her, Not that she minded, it seemed in these situations ever curious souls. One eager and excited sounding soul was fixated, On Alistair. Not overly shocking to Judina considering that he in fact was not a common being to see, Alistair was generally starting to seem more popular then she was, If that was a good thing? she was unsure it was not something she would generally worried about currently, For now it was something for her to talk to the curious soul about.

The question asked of Alistair was pretty simple, Judina herself would not answer. She would not need too because Alistair would answer right away."I can talk yes."Alistair mentioned in a bit of delight, Alistair and Judina would stop there casual walk to continue engaging the new person in conversation. the friendly giant cat rather then answering right away then went towards Masami naturally following because Alistair was his own free being but generally watched over Alistair as she did everyone Judina would not be too far away.

Alistair would stop in front of Masami and sit down."I eat fish, Preferably fish."So far Judina had not needed to say anything."But I do eat other things too."He was a happy giant cat, Which made the conversation between Masami and Alistair a rather easy conversation between them. At least Judina did not seem like she was trying to be rude, She did not really need to speak Alistair answered everything. Judina however would finally speak."You can pet him if you want."Judina was trying to seem social in some way, But it showed she was generally a quiet person over all. Not that it was overly horrible she was.

Masami
Turns out, the animal can speak after all. That was wonderful, and Masami hasn't seen anything like it! Just like the woman stated, Masami gently tapped the animal's forehead with his whole palm. Even though he hesitated a little at first, he eventually started to pet the gigantic cat, like a normal animal it was. Apparently, the animal's gentle and friendly approach slightly made Masami find the woman intimating, on the other hand, but she didn't seem so malevolent as to completely ignore the boy. She openly let Masami touch her own companion, too, so she can't be that bad.

"I've—got some fish from a while ago!" said Masami as his hand slowly slides down to a small basket of bought goods, holding a fish out in the air by hand; this was supposed to be for the theater's staff but... oh well, guess Masami was still a kid as to sacrifice fresh fish over a cute cat. "We were going to have this for lunch, but you can have it!" he uttered, directing the message to the companion while raising the fresh fish in the air, trying to get to the cat's head-level for it to consume. He knew that the woman would be gazing at them, and her quietness was making Masami adjust to the same, making him feel like keeping quiet as well. He has been in multiple socially awkward situations already, and he didn't want the same first impression for the woman, especially now that he got acquainted with a legitimate talking cat. "This isn't free, you know. You can make up for me if you can cook." joked Masami, but he had also directed it to the woman. Hey, at least he's got something to say and if the woman did know how to cook, then things won't be so awkward, no?

To add it up, he continued by looking over to the woman this time. "Do you like fish, too?" he raised the basket of good towards her, low-key asking her to grab whatever is inside. Little did he know that he was getting awfully suspicious despite trying to be friendly.

Judina
Upon touching Alstair, being the friendlier of two slightly nuzzled into Masami the most he was petted, Either to his benefit or not was entirely how Masami would feel about giant cat like Alistair. At least for now the engagement was there and no one seemed to have any overly horrible feelings. Alistair at least was seemingly well behaved and tame for a massive cat

It was interesting for Judina to watch, the ever changing ways the public for reaction to Alistair, Eventually seeing how the two were interacting towards one another, Judina could not help but smile slightly in happiness, There was emotion under the rough looking blank stare, Just buried under many things that Masami did not know it seems.

It seemed like they were offering something, Judina and Alistair were not expecting really, But it seemed interesting enough of a situation"I wouldn't cook it myself."Alistair said, mind you he was large massive cat and hunting and more raw meats were most likely normal to him."Yes but not all of us, Can eat fish like you enjoy Alistair."Judina would finally break her long timed quiet, Just merely point out what Alistair might not be considering at all in the situation.

Was this a lure from Masami, wanting to give them fish if they could cook. But Judina seemed fine with it."You don't exactly have to give us the fish, I am more then willing to cook if you wanted us to join you if you were willing to share."Judina started off with, She seemed scary but there was more to her, In fact Judina would even mention"Even if you needed more, I would not have any problems buying more fish."Eventually it would have to be pointed out as well Alistair is a cat that could not fit in many places that people use to cook, Nor can he cook either, all that easily anyway.

Masami
Apparently, this cat's name was Alistair, and this woman's name was...? Masami gazed over her shoulder, trying not to look directly at her face. She seems awfully familiar, thus he pointed at her. "You... I've seen you before? From the dragons." he uttered, raising a brow, he had also left the whole basket down to the ground when he approached the woman, whom he guessed to be named Judina. Their personalities were contrasting, but now that Masami was starting to remember who the woman in front of him was, it looks like it's not so hard to adjust anymore.

The memory from that event faded as if it was like a dream, Masami doesn't have a stable memory of the occurrence, but it definitely happened. "Wow, to think that you're pretty recognized, I should be the one buying fish for you." he was bad at recognizing peoples' fame and reputation, apparently because he almost was never starstruck as to know the feeling of being famous as well. Although Masami wanted to bombard Judina with compliments regards being a mage (even if Masami wasn't told anything about it), he had tried to refrain himself from doing so. "Ah, I don't know what to say..." he admitted, chuckling after while he scratches the back of his head in embarrassment, "how about I treat you and Alistair lunch? You're here now, anyway. I'd like to know about you for being my elder, you'd be mean if you refused a child's offer." apparently, the kid sounded like he was negotiating (or blackmailing?) at this point.

Judina
Now the stranger picked up on who was, which was strange because no one really approached her in this manner before, It was some what new still to her. Judina might not even know how to generally react this way, After all she once change her entire appearance over all to avoid this kind of situation possibly happening  Was this the moment Judina would wonder now if her attempts to shift around when she did had failed? Then again this was long before her hair was longer and she wore armour rather then what she wore now.

So far she could act normal about it."Yes I was dealing with the dragons."Kind of, it was a team effort from her other guild members, Judina did not do as much as she felt like she could have, But would not admit it, Then again Judina was not playing hero or had a ego about it."It is a matter of how people view themselves after a situation, In my case it was needed and the right thing to do at the time."That would be what she felt about it, A bit more humble and down to earth rather then playing the hero.

How this next part was word both Judina and Alistair found it strange, Even it became noticeable on her face where it showed a puzzled expression.Everything else up until the final part of what was stated was pretty agreeable in some manner."Ahh...what now?"Judina would say, This might give Masami a chance to possibly reword what was just said to save the situation entirely, Judina was not rude to say no to joining some one, However this situation was entirely new and this isn't how she was use too people asking her to eat with her.

Masami
Masami sighed, apparently the woman didn't seem to get it. Before he continued to speak, he picked his basket up from the floor (in which he had unintentionally dropped) then placed his hands by his waists. "I said..." he was going to repeat himself, "would you mind if I interview you?" okay, he did not repeat himself. As evidently as it already was, what came out of Masami's mouth was something he didn't expect, either, as it was a completely different statement. He realized that only after he had finished speaking.

He seemed to have turned Alistair into his friend at that immediate moment. "While we go grab on some lunch, too! Maybe Alistair would like more fish, right, Alistair?" he turned to the cat, hoping that he would agree with Masami. Although Masami wasn't always prepared like this, he had a small notepad inside the basket, along with a pen – it also looked like his words controlled him more than he controlled them, but he could probably use some more character idea from a play, but hopefully it doesn't make himself an annoying busybody. 'I should ask how she'd react if her cat turned into a human, or something like that.' Masami didn't want to turn the woman off by asking boring, dull and not-colorful questions, but that's why Masami's here to pick them up for lunch.

Judina
It was at least now worded different and in a way Judina could see as better, she would not have to consider calling a person out for possible blackmail or guilt tripping. She would not mind an interview at all."I am not much for interviews."Not to worry Masami after all Judina was not running from it or saying no."But I fine for an interview."This might be a vastly different situation for her. Judina generally care for interviews, Then again she was not much of a open talker in general, So this might be in an odd situation for Judina.

Alistair, would just lightly brush his head against Masami for a moment.Your were talking Alistair's language with just getting fish. Even remarking."This kid is pretty cool Judi."Alistair would say then again, Alistair was a simple being to keep happy. Hence why it was simply to actually talk to him too in that manner. Letting out a sigh Judina would simply state."Keep in mind, I like to keep Alistair with me, If there is room for Alistair and myself, We should be fine with both situations."They were keeping a balance of one another.

If Masami had somewhere for both of them to sit that was most likely not around a bunch of people, He would have himself a easy stage for an interview. After all Judina seemed to be a bit more private towards everything, even for some one known as a woman who fought demons, with the dragons and has a large cat following her, Not realizing it now, Judina had a lot of things that made her an interesting person, With a few other things she really did not talk about  mostly because there were still that she wanted to keep herself still so far she had kept it good and hidden she thought.

Masami
The ramen place that Masami knows should have enough spots for two acquaintances including a big cat. "I got you!" he assured them with a thumbs up, turning his back to visit the ramen place that he knew off; time-to-time, he turned back to make sure that the two were still following him—the ramen place isn't so far off. In a few minutes and corners, they have finally arrived in a small, but seemingly big restaurant.

"I've got new customers! Come on, follow me." Masami signaled the two to enter inside—the shopkeeper looked at Alistair with odd eyes, unsure whether to allow the feline inside or not, thinking if it would bother the overwhelmed, amazed customers for seeing a rare (or legendary?) creature's presence in the same floor as them. Masami led the two to the end of the hall, where the feline would have enough space to sit on, over the carpet, right beside the table that Masami and the woman would be using. Like a gentleman child he was, he pulled the chair over for the woman before taking a seat himself. Since it was a casual shop, Masami didn't have to ask for a menu, simply raising two fingers towards the shopkeeper and uttering: "Miso ramen." and then picking the notepad and pen from the basket, starting his journalism life.

He swung his feet, swaying from the chair. "I've got more fish for you, Alistair. There's more in the basket, unless you wanted noodles as well?" he said this without looking away from the notepad, giving himself a small review about the things he have written so far... which aren't really much, in fact. "Okay, first question!" he looked at the woman with certainty and excitement (and impishness), "If suddenly, you couldn't use magic at all, what would you do?"

Judina
Such things were always so different for Judina to realize, A person had some much energy and emotion for something they set out for, it was oddly interesting to her. Judina then again was more generally being guided around and being around of this city, in which she did not mind. Then again understanding and being a bit more of a known person, Judina might just have to keep a some what at least sociable look and knowing, So that if anything horrible seemed to be highlighted of her, She would hope some people would have faith in her and did not think she could be dangerous.

Alistair would be quick to settle in, Judina taking a bit of moment she would walk over and pet Alistair, You can see even if Judina was a bit stiff of person she seemed to care about her companion.  

Judina still did not understand the what to order around here food wise, But at least Alistair was simple."So far this is enough fish."He was a humble giant cat, After all he was just being given food and he would not try to push it too far."I do not need anything else."He was just a happy cat as he was, that was all he just seem to want. At least the cat would be easy to deal with.

So he had manners."Thank you."Judina could admire this, Simply because she was raised this way too, her mother Judith stuck manner as this in her head so hard, She could feel her judgment of if she did not remember to use them. Nonetheless settling into her chair the first question was kind of simple to answer."I know how to use weapons, as well as trained to fight with my fists as well."So far it seemed like a harmless question to ask her.

Masami
"Ah! I'm not surprised that you are a fighter." replied Masami, writing the woman's answers down to his notepad, 'I expected that, even if she looks like she'd be more reliant to magic.' Now that he agreed with himself along the thought that the woman was a fighter, all the questions that Masami prepared had apparently automatically switched into something that was more fitting for the lady.

Even without looking away, Masami could already smell the miso that they are preparing for the ramen that they have ordered. "If one day, Alistair turned into a human and can't seem to revert back into a cat, what will you do?" this was a question that Masami had been wanting to ask ever since he saw Alistair, surprisingly he knew the cat's name and not the woman's, whom was the person that Masami was interviewing. Masami didn't want to ask her name first, believing that it will ruin the mood, but it looked like she was so willing in answering questions, at least while the ramen was still in the making.

The boy made a slight gaze over the Cattian, wanting to check how they would react to the question. From his knowledge, some animals preferred to stay as an animal, and most didn't even want to be human at all. "If that was the case, would you turn Alistair back into their original form, or keep them as a human?" the boy added, as it was supposed to be a slightly humiliating question, a childish attempt to make an interesting conversation.

Judina
It seemed like a harmless question to start with, Judina did not mind at all, it made her kind of miss her old armour, Since after all it was part of her in much better of a time for her. She had nothing else really stopping her from picking that armour back up again after all she only did change appearance to mainly avoid being known and noticed, since that was gone now. Judina seemed to consider return to that armour and outfit, Maybe after this Judina would just go get that armour again and go back to her old look.


Thus now they continue the conversation so to say.Surely it was a strange question, Even Alistair was confused by the question himself. Since it was not expected, She expected much different kind of questions. Alistair laughed slightly."I am interested to hear what Judi will say now."Masami would now hear her name but even if it was not important to him at the time. The conversation  left her at a pause, not a long one however, Judina had answer for it."Nothing, Alistair human or cat will always be my companion and I trust him human or cattain."Was it the answer he wanted? that would be left for him to choose.

But with how the second question was mentioned, Maybe the answer Judina would have would be easily guessed at least in Judina's view. after all that limit was not placed and left open to Judina to answer with."That would be entire his choice of what he wants more, It would not be my choice of what he wants to be."Was this also what answer Masami expected, Judina was for more for freedom of choice for Alistair and not of her choosing, something Judina assume he would not expect since most people would answer selfishly.

Masami
That got a little too sentimental for what Masami had expected, nevertheless he wrote Judina's answers down to his notepad while giving off a crooked smile. "W-Well... I was more concerned about clothes and expenses... and all that humiliating stuff." Masami has never had an animal companion, so he never knew the feeling of being sentimental towards a feline companion, but he had accepted Judina's answer as it is. Thinking of questions suddenly became a very challenging aspect for Masami, especially when he's trying not to trigger anyone.

Before Masami could open his mouth to ask another question, bowls of noodles had slid themselves on top of the table. "Woah!" Masami reacted as he did not expect that their orders would come in so quickly. Picking the chopsticks up, he uttered before digging in: "Thank you for the food!" it was a Joyan tradition that he had kept ever since he left Joya, unashamed of expressing culture even through the eyes of someone who might not understand. "Does Alistair eat noodles?" it was a question, mission complete! Masami was honestly running out of them, as if he was getting his brain mana drained when he realized that Judina had different views than him, but perhaps more practical questions were better to get to know a person.

Judina
So it was the answer not expected, No matter Judina would follow it up with."You are trying to dig up that kind of information from me?"Judina did not answer in that manner because she could not exactly picture Alistair in clothing, she was far too straight forward in that manner, Judina's thought is not super creative in that manner. Alistair would just simply say."Human clothing sounds odd to wear."Yes he was still paying attention but he was more focus on other things.

Alistair would also mention."Information like that,I don't think i have heard her ever speak about."So Masami might have to plan around that part of Judina, eventually it would just continue the conversation as it is."You are going to be hard press to get anything like that from me."Judina would casually also mention, Keeping in mind Judina did not sound like she would be hard to deal with, Just getting the answer he might want might take detailed wording.

Judina seemed at least some how delighted at the food presented and bought by Masami to her. Noodles was pretty nice to have as well, Judina could enjoy it since, well Judina was always raised to be happy with the positives in life she was given.

The small hint of what could be considered embarrassing about Judina would show,After all she did not really know how to use chopsticks all that well, Shown easily but how easily she fumbled with them trying to use them. Alistair would answer the question himself."I will eat anything in front of me."Judina did not try to feed him foods that was super different all that often. Judina would not protest because she was polite and see if Alistair would enjoy it, As well as trying to focus on using chopsticks she barely knew how to use.

Masami
Muttering a quiet 'Yikes,' under his breath, Masami did not reply to Judina's question and proceeded on taking a sip from the broth that he had raised up with a spoon, specifically made for the bowl. "Ah, this place is nice," he even tried to change the topic, "isn't it?" He smiled at Judina, genuinely, trying to avoid spilling the fact that, indeed, he was trying to dig up 'that sort' of information from her. He wouldn't know, but he learned his lesson.

The Joyan couldn't help but notice the small sounds created by the clumsy use of chopsticks – he directed his vision to Judina's bowl, "Would you rather if I ask for a fork?" he had asked, although he imagined he'd try feeding the woman but... doing so with chopsticks would be sort of a weird deal. "It's okay, this is Hosenka," he assured her, "people won't get angry if they see you eat ramen with a spoon and a fork." Ah, it was harder in his hometown in Joya, where everything was traditional and suffocating, although Masami was completely fine with that sort of treatment. He loved traditions, well, Joyan traditions, but he had never understood why foreigners often didn't like their own. In fact, Masami was wearing his culture now.

"What country are you from? I'd assume that you are a Fiorian," asked Masami before he'd dip his chopsticks down to the sea of broth, slowly using the two sticks to pick up noodles, as if he wanted Judina to look closely so that she'd learn how to use them simply by watching him.

Judina
At least with that tense moment, Masami could play it off, She most likely was far more serious about things with her personal life because information such as that could be used in some ways against her, She knew that very well. Or she was paranoid. Maybe her experiences in life left her that way and it was just showing now. However realizing Judina seemed to be tensing up so to say she would just let out a sigh, that sigh of reality hitting her that she was most likely seeming too high strung and she needed to settle down, But hey Alistair still seemed happy and normal.


"Yes, it is nice here."
Judina would agree, trying to seem like she did not just cause a massive ball of tension over all. The the more personal and more human side of Judina started showing. Judina was not just a ball of seriousness. In this manner Judina seemed to admit defeat."If you could get me a fork that would be wonderful.."She sounded like she was bested in that moment and slightly and only slightly sad about it, the tone of was extremely faint, you would have to notice in detail to pick up upon it.

If was not that Judina feared any one being angry, She was stubborn and extremely self conscious about it, Just too stubborn to admit anything right away. At least this question might just be a bit more easier and how as worrying to answer."Yes I am from Fiore, All of my family is."Not the conversation could be back on track, since in Judina's mind this seemed much more harmless. At least in her view, So Judina would wait for a fork to eat her meal, Alistair since he did not use a fork or chopstick just seemed to be eating like it ate everything.

Masami
Masami nodded at her with a thumbs up before he'd turn to the ramen shop's staff, saying, "One fork for the non-Joyan, please," in the Joyan language. They'd understand this more; then he'd turn back to Judina, "I told them to get you a fork," assuring her that he did not say anything suspicious without her notice. The staff moved quick, immediately a fork was placed beside Judina's bowl of ramen, and then they'd go back to the duty they were taking before. Masami would face Judina once more, "Ah, there it is." He'd point at the fork, like a child he was, with the face of amusement. He rarely used forks, he had always used chopsticks and a spoon, maybe along with a knife, too, but forks were usually out of the table.

"Why are you in Joya?" It was quite an out-of-context question, "I mean... in Hosenka, which is very Joyan-themed, anyway," he followed up to make things clearer. He'd sometimes forget that Hosenka City is outside Joya – his hometown will always be better, however, no matter how nicely Hosenka City imitates it. They will never create a copy out of Joya, even with their odd magics and talismans. Hosenka City seems to have been attracting the non-Joyans, since it's all about the money, after all. Home of the greedy people, "I bet it's about some guild event?" Masami had asked before using the spoon to pick up broth, and then taking a sip. He'd do this as if he wanted to show Judina how do use the ramen's spoon this time. Maybe he'd pick up a miso and drop it directly inside his mouth. Eating only the toppings itself is sometimes as mesmerizing as filling ice-cream with mostly toppings... okay, maybe not, but it was enjoyable, anyhow.

Judina
The moment of how Judina seemed to be that was far opposite of what the situation behind the fork was, seemed to have quickly left."Wonderful thank you."At least making sure saying thank you for the young lad getting sliver wear she knew far better, rather then two tiny wooden sticks. At least Judina was good enough to control any frustrations or feeling she might have about being unable to use chopsticks. Cultural differences was something Judina did not fully take into account for this trip out to this city, It might have been a good idea to figure out a few things first.

Thus they would move on. Continuing the conversation, Yet again oddly harmless to start with it."I got order too by my guild master, I work far too much and needed stop and take a vacation."Which was an honest and most likely easily guessed answered. Almost pondering to herself why this small lad wanted to know why she was here."Nothing related to guilds."So just here if anything just because some  one more compelled her to come here to get away from a bunch of stuffing going on in life, It showed Judina might not fully pay attention to what maybe be going on around her.

It seemed to be a odd moment to look into what exactly she was doing. Judina could wonder where this was, but at least being shown the broth sooner Judina figure out how to use it, In some way it was nice and give Judina a nice moment of starting to think Masami was not trying to learn embarrassing things of her. In which Alistair still used nothing, the broth was just a nice tasty drink to him. Judina still did not feel she was really fitting here, But that was her still worrying about stuff pointlessly when she was suppose to be relaxing.

Masami
No doubt, Masami just had to chuckle at Judina's reply. "Looks like I'm not the only workaholic." Joya, specifically in Masami's hometown, are very job-dedicated people. In fact, Masami had multiple jobs in a young age, but it probably won't be the same if he went to school, like the other kids but... it looks like he really wasn't made for that sort of thing, having to study completely different values instead. He continued to dive his chopsticks down to the sea of ramen broth, digging in pieces of noodles, served directly into his mouth for consumption. Masami should have been getting tired of the same meal everyday.

"You know," he said, "it must have been nice to get in contact with fellow guild members. I meet them from time to time, well, time to time." He'd shrug the thought off and focus on his food, he didn't need people to ask him if he was in a guild, after all. Not that he was ashamed of it—in Joya, organizations as such were meant to be kept secret, albeit loyal. Masami brings that trait with him, until now, but it slightly upsets him that he'd rarely see them. Easily attached, but too detached to become so. Masami had gotten curious unto why guilds had suddenly turned Hosenka City into their hotspot, wasn't it just a new city? Or Hosenka had gotten abruptly famous? "Have you tried the baths yet?" Masami has never been there, "It should get rid of some stress. After all, you've come for a vacation."

Judina
Did she even have a life was to question, Since after all she devoted too much to work that everything had fallen behind, So It seemed eventually it was almost like that had been on her mind for a long a really long time, not helping was her lingering thought about whatever else she had wished to do with her life was now falling behind in some manner."Seems so, I refused the vacation until it was ordered on me..."To think that was something way of how she was."Even then, I feel like I need to work."So figuratively she was drowning herself in work.

It was something else to consider with in her mind for a moment."I generally tend to be often not be around my guild members, unless I really need to be."Judina would generally call herself the lone wolf kind of worker,  she was until she gained a giant cat."But I have no problems with my guild members, So it is nice to see them sometimes."Judina did feel horrible that she rare went around, Just most of the time she just preferred to work alone.

This conversation was making Judina reflect more into the things she was already worrying about as of late."It is a goal to go there eventually, Most likely will tonight or tomorrow."Hoping she did not forget to, Because anything she seemed to wanted to do that was new she often forgot because other things seemed to end up catching her attention.

But it was in her mind currently, So she would hopefully remember."It does seem like various things here, I am unsure what will happen when i do actually go to them."Ahh the wonders of learning of different cultures was already lingering yet again.

Masami
Surprised by the sudden ratio change of speech, Masami thought that the woman felt more comfortable talking about the recent topic. While she spoke, it was just now that Masami decided to scan her appearance from top to toe; dark hair, perhaps colored, with magic? She mentioned that hair parents are both from Fiore, certainly not from Joya, was she mixed? The table stopped Masami from trying to view her lower body, specifically the shape of Judina's legs. He had remembered that you see what people are capable off by viewing their lower body; likewise, Masami's flexibility and fluency in dancing at least struck him a decent amount of femininity, fighters mainly have buffer legs, and they were greatly obvious. Instead, he turned his gaze to the feline creature, who had silently listened to the two's conversation. Knowing that he had social intelligence like that of a human's, Masami smiled at Alistair, as if he was no cat but a child.

Nevertheless, Masami refused to talk about his guild. "Maybe you have some Joyan blood in you?" Masami joked, it was better to talk about this, but you never really know what sort of blood you have in you anymore. Masami was sure that he was fully Joyan; originally black in hair color, but his hair didn't seem to be changing shades anymore. Maybe because he had Kurisa's blood, DNA as they call it, flowing through his veins now? His golden eyes also never explained anything Joyan, and people always seem to wonder.

A sudden rush of instinct filled Masami, causing him to abruptly turn his head at the entrance of the ramen shop. At this moment, he couldn't speak; rather, he didn't have enough time to react so. Someone was following them—perhaps for a while now? If that was the case, then Judina wasn't feeling the presence of Masami when she was being "followed," then it must be a completely different entity. Masami's eyes was suddenly stripped off of gentleness, and he feels threatened, stubborn, like a wild animal that was about to attack.

Immediately after Masami's attention, the ground started to shake, and the utensils started to fall off of the tables.

Judina
The entire break down of the biological information of Judina is not entirely something Judina generally picked up on happen, Then again if asked Judina just was who she was because of how her family happen to be as well. Judina was built like the woman she was far use to being, wearing plate armour, carrying weapons. So many things as such. But that reality did not really come to her, After all Judina's figure of mind of what she would consider the strongest figure of femininity would be her mother, Some one that she felt was lingering around here.

It was a good question to ask, Then again Judina would not know because they was something either her father or her mother would know."I would have to ask my mother, She would know bloodline more then I would, Where ever she is."That premise of where ever she is, Seemed to make it open to many Judina was more hinting that she never knew when she would pop up.

Judina seemed to laugh."For all I know, my mother could even in be here in Hosenska."Judina make it sound like her mother was an ever lingering presence that was hard to track, Was that the feeling Judina might be reaction too earlier? Or was that Masami? It was an interesting thing to ponder.

Alistair would react before Judina would the quiet cat looked around like something was different."Judi....do you feel that?"Alistair would ask maybe Alistair had been feeling that for a while. So far Judina seemed to not be reacting much. But she would stop what she was doing currently to figure out what might be causing this distress of the moment."Hmm...Yes, But what could it be?"Judina had to ponder now, Was it her mother? Was it some one else? Judina seemed use to the moments like these, She was calm but not seemingly reacting yet.

Masami
Joya didn't have much magic. At least, when it came to Masami's hometown, so he'd be unfamiliar of "presences" or "aura," or whatever those even meant. He was familiar of the feeling of having his mana drained due to exhaustion, Masami could specifically explain how it felt, but now wasn't the time. There were humans who had greater senses for living in nature, and Masami was one of them—slightly? After the short quake, people outside started to recall a message: "It's just an earthquake!" They'd say it in Joya, in which Masami understood before Judina could, leaving him to sigh in relief and sit back. "It was just an earthquake," Masami would say, and then pick the utensils that fell off of the table. Surely, more than five seconds had passed, so these weren't clean anymore, were they?

Judina must've felt his own mother, maybe she was one of those humans who had greater senses because of their nurtured training. That could be it, thought Masami, tapping the utensils upon the tabletop, and then wiping the slightly spilled ramen broth with the tissue that lay right beside it. "Looks like it wasn't so serious, I overreacted." It was an honest embarrassment, and Masami was willing to admit that... but not now, of course. "Maybe we could try searching for your mother here in Hosenka? I don't doubt your instincts." Masami had a mother too, but her presence wasn't in Hosenka. No, not at all; she was in Joya—even if Kurisa had adopted him, she wasn't her mother—no, not at all. The real one was in Joya, and she was worried sick.

If Masami had gotten lost, with her (adoptive) mother get worried sick as well?

"There might be an aftershock, let's finish the meal quick!" Nevertheless, he'd smile at Judina and Alistair, and then he'd quickly gulp the remaining ramen broth in (which didn't have much leftovers, anyway).

Judina
At least the chaos of the earth quaking randomly had passed quickly, Or Judina just looked like he was far too numb to the realities around her still, It was surely just something Judina shrugged off, in a world of magic and everything maybe it was just a few mages having a fight or something else that Judina might have to look into later,"Given I don't hear screaming and panic, I can assume there is not much to worry about."Judina was not trying to sound super dismissive but that was happening unintentionally.

Judina might have had some of her meal spilled on her but she just kind of got back to the normal mood of the situation quickly, not anything too horrible, this area and place was clean so it was better for a few moment of her fork was on the floor. Alistair's food was gone since he had eaten all of it, With the move of his massive paw he would just simply flip the dish or bowl he had back over."Sometimes that reaction isn't so bad."Alistair said like the content cat he was, Getting up from his eating spot to move around and sit a bit more close but behind his master.

When that quest was raised Judina just simply said."One thing i learned, I don't need to seek out my mother."Judina mentioned casually, After all it was simple."She will find me quickly and home onto where i am, I am unsure how she does it."It was most likely worrying for Masami since that sounded some how horrify to hear to some people. Where Judina was not super worried about after shock she would just find it more polite to finish her meal with her guest.
