Portals Up, Portals Down

[ Dacey Nolan, age 24, walks calmly through the open air shopping center on the Gold Stage. At the window of a designer handbag store, she looks at her reflection in the glass. Tucking some stray brown locks of hair behind her ear, she grins at the people all around her. Saturday's are busy shopping times, and it's getting close to the holiday season. Music is blasting from the shopping center's speakers. Conversations fill the air when music notes aren't loud enough. Surely no one will notice Nolan should she snap her fingers with her right hand, still covered by hair.

Eyes glow blue as three handbags sitting on a shelf fall through a bright blue portal that opens underneath. The portal quickly disappears as her glow does. Nolan starts to walk away, knowing those handbags have fallen through a second portal back at her house, an orange portal created with a snap of her left hand. She starts to hum a Blue Rose song as she continues with her window shopping. What a pleasant day it is. Even the weather is nice.

What Nolan doesn't know is that her string of crimes hasn't gone completely unnoticed. Over-confidence is her vice. Security cameras have identified her as a person of interest. Her face has been present at many of the reported thefts, and it has long been thought a NEXT could be involved, though they don't know the power used.

As with many crimes involving NEXTs, the heroes have been called to action. Each hero is at a different gate to the shopping center. Origami Cyclone waits at Gate 3, around the corner of a large sporting goods store. All he's waiting for is the word from Agnes to start.

[ And Sam Grigory, age 15, is just like every other patron in the mall in that he's completely unaware of anything at all amiss. Even the handbags haven't been noticed missing yet. Just like the rest of the shoppers Sam is engrossed mainly in his own business which at the moment is nothing more routine than flipping through a new comic book he'd picked up from (admittedly) a much higher-end bookstore than he needed to visit. He hadn't come all this way just for the new issue of Incredible Man; no, what had initially drawn him to the Gold Stage was the upscale art store. All sorts of high-end pens and inking supplies could be found there and that where Sam intends to blow his entire month's allowance.

Just as soon as he's finished this issue... It's slow going, especially when meandering through a busy crowd. ]
sugoooi: (す、すみません!)

he is sou tuff ;v;

[personal profile] sugoooi 2014-10-20 04:40 am (UTC)(link)
[ The ginger-haired teen notices neither of them. His nose is stuck so firmly in his book that he actually misses his turn-off for the art store as he reflexively follows the flow of the person in front of him.

Luckily (or unluckily) his foot catches on the ground and he stumbles a little, and that's enough to pull his face from his comic long enough for him to realize whoops, he's headed in the wrong direction. But not enough to notice that in turning quickly to his right to correct the issue he'll wind up smacking right into Nolan and stumble backwards as his book tumbles from his hands. ]


Oof--ah! S...s-sorry! Sorry, I didn't mean....!
sugoooi: (holy potatoes batman!!)

[personal profile] sugoooi 2014-10-20 03:02 pm (UTC)(link)
Ah... Y-yeah, I'm okay! [ Besides the fact that he talking to a black-haired beauty anyway and she's seen him look like a total dork, probably. Sam's avoiding looking Origami right in the eyes as he take his book back, looking almost anywhere else. ]

I just wasn't watching where I was going...
sugoooi: (but y'know)

[personal profile] sugoooi 2014-10-21 03:29 am (UTC)(link)
O-oh...yeah, um-- [ And then Ivan's off, that serious look on her (his) face that makes Sam take pause with a confused sort of blink. Does she plan to catch up to that lady and give her a talking-to? he hopes not--it's already embarrassed enough and he knows it was his fault they collided, he doesn't mind! Really! ...Is what he'd like to say, but instead he sort of gathers himself up and stands there, blinking dumbly until he notices a tiny golden pearl-looking thing on the ground and he leans over to pick it up.

An earring...? It kind of looks like the sort that lady had been wearing. ]


Ah...
sugoooi: (guilty guilterson)

[personal profile] sugoooi 2014-10-21 05:11 am (UTC)(link)
I think so... [ Again he fails to meet Ivan's gaze, but he still glances up for just a second; placing his gaze on the expanse of his forehead instead. ]

She had another one like it. [ The unspoken sense after that being "I should return it" mixed with "or did you want to? I should probably do it but you looked so serious..." ]
sugoooi: (おじゃまします)

[personal profile] sugoooi 2014-10-21 05:56 am (UTC)(link)
[ To stay out of last place Ivan AIM FOR THE STARS. Something more assertive than "not last", goodness. ]

Oh--uh, s-sure. Okay. Here... [ He doesn't look totally confident on the whole thing (he still feels like he should be the one to return it somehow), but. Sam brings up his hand to place the small earring in Ivan's, but he does it in a way where his knuckles brush the palm of his hand--he doesn't want to drop it, after all. This would be the safest way to do it.

No harm in that, right?

Not. ]

[ Origami Cyclone?! One second he's just innocently handing over a fallen earring to the most beautiful girl ever and the next he's staring straight up into the Heroic face of...well, a NEXT. Two things go through his mind at nearly the same time:

1) Holycrapholycrapholycrap That's really origami Cyclone!!
and
2) She's not a girl?!

And like an idiot he just keeps on gawking as origami's cover is blown and he turns to suddenly dash after the woman from before, hand still outstretched and face pale. ]


........Hero.....

[ Hero. ]

[ That was a real hero just now!! He touched one in the flesh. Mind you it's not like he touched Blue Rose or Barnaby, but still. ]
sugoooi: (I TOUCHED IT...)

[personal profile] sugoooi 2014-10-22 01:14 am (UTC)(link)
[ HE TOUCHED A HERO. Sam is never washing his hand again ever. ]

G...g-go get 'em!! Hero!!! [ yes, he did yell that out like a giant loser. BUT HE TOUCHED A HERO OKAY. ]
sugoooi: (す、すみません!)

[personal profile] sugoooi 2014-10-22 04:02 am (UTC)(link)
[ Heroes are so cool... is what's on Sam's mind as he watches Origami disappear into the crowd. Like everyone else he focuses on the NEXT instead of the one he chases because well. He stands out a whole lot more and if he's appeared that must mean the others will inevitably show up as well. So his gaze remains outward, scanning everything before him while giving very little thought to anyone snooping around behind.

Nolan isn't even on his radar anymore despite the fact that he still has the earring clasped tightly in his hand, lips pressed together in an excited line. He's drawn up in the excitement of getting to watch Hero TV in person--even tries to follow the gathering, bunching crowd a little as a ring of people starts to form. Which of course he gets cut out of, being so short. ]
sugoooi: (最低)

[personal profile] sugoooi 2014-10-22 05:01 pm (UTC)(link)
[ Sam feels the cold metal blade pressed to his neck and freezes up instinctively; that it's the women before or that he's being used as a hostage doesn't click right away because all he can think is don't move. His first instinct is to gulp and swallow but the orange-haired teen forces even that down as he stares straight ahead. The urge to look back at his captor is string too.

He feels helpless, but he also feels scared and that's almost worse as he looks beseechingly at someone--anyone, Origami--to do something as his arms hang tense at his sides. ]
sugoooi: (kicked puppy)

[personal profile] sugoooi 2014-10-23 03:14 am (UTC)(link)
P...please, um....

[ Should he talk? He shouldn't right? Origami would handle things or the other Heroes would arrive and there's no way she wants to add more time to her sentence right?? She can be sensible--it's not like she'll get a super bad sentence compared to if she did hurt someone. He hopes she realizes that, decides maybe she can let him go.

And you know, not to slice his head off or something. ]
sugoooi: (asklfld)

[personal profile] sugoooi 2014-10-23 06:32 am (UTC)(link)
[ Well he's...definitely had better days, that's for sure. He doesn't get the snapping thing or why she seems to hesitate, but that's about all the confusion he can muster before he finds himself being pulled none-too-kindly with the blade still precariously close to his neck...and then it's over, and Sam is only slightly sprawled out on the ground after his legs turn to jelly when he finds himself released.

For one brief moment he thinks this must be it, she's gone and cut him--and then he hears the announcement of Dragon Kid's success and the cheers and Sam finally clues in that Origami Cyclone's just approached him--him--and all he can do is nod in sort of a stupid, freaked-out and dazed sort of way. ]
sugoooi: (kicked puppy)

[personal profile] sugoooi 2014-10-23 04:16 pm (UTC)(link)
I th...I th, think so. [ He just needs a second here to maybe have his legs feel less like jelly. A wobble or two, or three. Then he'll be able to get to his feet slowly (albeit unsteadily) and kind of wander his way over. It feels better when he's sat down and can unconsciously hold one hand over his neck. He can still feel the blade pressed there if he tries. ]

...Thank you. For--saving me.
