Cynth: If I remember what Sabrina told me... 40 HL and a "fight-who-you-want" voucher.

Dulcinea Karate: *finishing her cleanup in the wake of Callista's blitzkrieg* Cousin Aldonza tells me that her faction offers them to known fighters in Muffinville periodically for a chance to test their skills, Lady Circe. Doris'll be cashing it in during her next scheduled day off.

Ah. I suppose I can see the appeal in that... So, is she fighting anyone I care about?

Dulcinea: That, I don't know. Want me to call her up and ask?

*Circe shrugs.* Eh, if you want to, go ahead. I'm a bit curious, but I'm not dying to know or anything.

((OOC: Heh. Just about forgot that she had a Charcoal transformation. ()^_^ ))

Eh, may as well. *takes out a smartphone and dials a number* ... ...Hey, Doris? It's Dulcy. You decide who you're going to be fighting yet? ... ... *pales* Aw, bloody !#%&$^. And she's actually okay with that? ... ...You're serious? They actually made her sign an affidavit? ... ...Well, it's just that you're kind of cool in a 'dark' sort of way, and I don't like seeing you turned into scrap metal just because she ended up losing. ... ...Well, if you say so. ... ...Alright, see you later.

*ends the call and looks up at the ceiling, shaking her head* Amazing. Out of all the people on the list, she had to pick Eebon.

(Whoops...)

Really? Eebon? ...Huh. I wouldn't have thought she'd be one to go after.

Cynth: It's kind of hard to think of her like that in light of her being such a momma's girl, but Eebon is a decent fighter.

Yeah... *shakes her head* I met Eebon once, and she told me that Amber won't let her move into the Infinite Defense's main HQ until she's a legal adult. Girl can reduce I-beams to shrapnel no problem, so it bugs me knowing that.

I mean, I guess her being a decent fighter isn't that shocking, considering her family. As for the rest... *Circe shrugs.* Amber's protective of her kids. Not sure that's really news.

And it doesn't strike you as strange that she's still coddling them at that age? Four of them... *remembers Echo* ...or three of them, rather... they're in high school now. She has to let them start growing up sooner or later.

Hey now, I never said I agreed with her. I've just known her long enough that I'm just not at all surprised she feels that way.

*sigh* Fair enough. Suppose I should finish up here and head home.

Cynth: *as Callous stumbles out of the restroom in the background* When's your next scheduled shift, if you don't mind me asking?

This coming Friday, from 2p.m. to 7. Would've been sooner, but that school Aldonza's kits go to back home asked me to substitute-teach for a few days. *examines several dust rags on her uniform before shrugging and picking one* Had to do some last-minute wrangling of my schedule at the Manor to make it happen.

Hm. Guess we'll see you then... *Circe looks to Callous as she comes back.* Oh, there you are. You were in there so long I was starting to wonder if you needed help...

*as Dulcinea goes about finishing her shift* Wasn't too far off the mark... I was washing my hands when I started experiencing a migraine and just about fell over. It's the sort of feeling I only get when someone exhibiting a large amount of chaos energy warps into an area. *grimaces and palms her forehead* Stupid fusion.

Ah, that'd do it. You were probably sensing Goldie when she came in a minute ago. Speaking of, she left a message for you when she was here. She says she looks forward to seeing you at "that get-together"...

See you at that... ... ...*comes to a realization* ...#%&*. She's the one who set it up. She has to be.
