"No I meant," Gunny trailed off, giving Keiko a small shove in the ribs, "I meant 0g training - there is no up or down in the big void so why limit yourself to two planes of movement down here?"

Gunnhild thought for a second about the sewers smelling, she didn't want to admit it but now she was just sounding dumb again - nobody liked sounding dumb, especially not this Neko.

"But she was asking how to best get past or through the crowd, not how to follow someone through a crowd - and it's kinda hard to see somebody through a solid wall or floor without them being a 'spacer or wearing something that might get 'em noticed anyway - BOOM," the strawberry blonde finished, rather pleased with something she felt had redeemed her earlier answer's rushed feeling.

Gunny was a very in the moment person though, and she kept checking the time - bringing it into her field of view and sweeping it away impatiently.

"Hide yourself, use skin vision to see in all directions and keep an eye on your surroundings. Anticipate where they are going to be next, watch how they are interacting with others and see if you can determine what their next move will be. Baring that, if you don't feel confident, get into the air and observe from above."

Hoshiko was clinical in her explanation as she watched the others around her. After a moment she simply disappeared and began to move along again. She would slowly move up between Gunhild and Keiko and allow a finger to poke each one in the side before she would reappear a few feet off.

"It's also important to know what the task is, like moving through this crowd. So long as you get through the crowd you are fine. Or if it is trailing, or recon, or whatever it may be." Hoshiko explained before she looked to Gunhild.

"We can encrypt our thoughts for a reason, but remember the more you encrypt, the more static that's in the air."

The cold demeanour, the cool little show of... however Miss H had managed to seemingly teleport, the words of wisdom and that last little telepathic quip had Gunny in awe - the only thing keeping her from throwing herself at the teacher fully was the lack of a revolver and wide-brimmed hat. It was then that the athletic little strawberry blonde realised her tail had puffed up and her heart was racing, she gulped down hard and tried to regain some kind of composure.

"Miss H... you're awesome!" Gunnhild managed to splutter out before she began forcing her tail back into submission, the wannabe gunslinger thought hard - trying her hand at this encryption deal. Somehow, not even quite knowing herself but the message has encrypted in such a funky way that her own mind's footprint dipped out of the network for the duration of the message, not that Gunny was aware of this at all as she asked.

"Miss Hoshiko, keep your eyes on the fight," Gunny mentally grunted with determination, beginning to run off but stopping herself short.

"I've gotta... use the little student's room real quick, yeah - go ahead without me and I'll catch up," the lively Neko quickly informed her friends and superiors before half-barreling into the nearest ladies bathroom.

Keiko nodded along, drinking in everything she could from the explanation before giving another small bow. "Thank you Miss that was very informative." The red neko felt the static this time as she hadn't been preoccupied with anything else like the last time, she briefly wondered what the two of them may have been discussing but decided she didn't really need to know.

She waved as gunny ran off and then went back to discreetly marveling at all the stalls and lights and various other going-ons at the event they'd been taken too.

Meanwhile, Jackson heard the familiar voice that'd welcomed everyone to the show continue speaking, apparently addressing some ongoing storylines from their last broadcast. Matches for the night were being announced, and he recognized a few names, although most of this speech was muffled or drowned out by the crowd.

The group had just made their way to the proper entryway that would lead them to their seats when Gunny scampered off to handle certain...private matters. The announcer's voice had gone silent by now, replaced by the show's theme song. This would be their last chance to grab those adult beverages Gunny had suggested, or any other snacks, unless they wanted to miss the first match!

Curiously, once they got near the entrance to the main area, communication channels began to open to the group one by one. It was apparently some sort of audio commentary that accompanied the show. This is what the audience at home would be hearing, and it would be up to them to tune in and out as they saw fit during the performances....

Hoshiko watched the girl run off with a raised eyebrow but just shook her head.

I'll have to work on her encryption technique, but she seems eager. A shame, that'll get broken if she is picked...

Hoshiko kept her thoughts private as she just nodded as she was spoken to mentally but otherwise turned to follow Jackson and the others into the main area. She had little need of drinks or anything, or really being here period. The idea of a televised wrestling match was dumb to her, but this was also a chance to meet her students before her first real classes and had been asked along to observe anyway. It was always easier to get to know someone by simply watching them in public or at least it was for her. This would be a good chance to see how they acted in public and maybe see just how worthwhile they could be for SAINT.

Keiko stayed silent while they made their way closer to the seats and tuned in to one of the various commentaries, one of the more chilled out ones with at least 300% less screaming and shouting that some of the announcer channels she'd skimmed through. She'd already decided she wouldn't bother trying any of the alcohol but a snack might be nice, would Gunnhild want anything? Since she was gone she might miss her chance, Keiko knew her friend would probably appreciate something to eat.

Moving to one of the smaller food stands Keiko picked out two buckets of popcorn, a small one for her and a large for Gunny, her allowance could easily cover a small purchase like this which was good, the red neko wanted to wait for a chance to sneak away for a time and see if there was anyone selling anime themed merchandise.

Tenshi had been silent the entire time. More falling back to a thoughtful silence as she watched everything played out. There were always people breaking their head over the current, presented situation. There were those who would dismiss it all together, to wait and see. And then, there was Tenshi. And something she had been praised for during her education. Her silence, her dimunitive nature. She just fell back against the background and became inconspicuous.

She had no comments either. Tenshi glanced at the teacher, before at Gunnhild, who decided to pay a visit to the bathrooms, leaving Tenshi with little to no people to talk to.

She decided to make her way over to one of the stalls, raising her hand to the keep. Smirking and ordering two drinks. Before turning around and leaning against the stall. Taking a sip from her own while waiting for Gunnhild.

Gunny returned shortly, it hadn't taken long for the type 33a to realise the bathroom window had no actual locks not mechanism to open and while she wasn't above trying to break it - the blasted thing was damn near invincible so now the strawberry blonde dejectedly fwumped her face down onto a table nearby the group.

She had been going to try and sneak off to enter the fights but... well that was the end of that plan, now it just seemed like she'd sent Miss H an overly enthusiastic message about the fight. Things could be worse but Gunnhild could be heard muttering something along the lines of "...stupid window..." under her breath as she felt the table's grain against her ever so slightly yellowed skin.

Tenshi looked up from her seated position, over towards Gunnhild. Tilting her head with a soft, amused huff of breath. She held up one of the glassess and shook it ever so slightly. "Gunny~" The ravenette chimed her invitation, letting out a soft chuckle.

Keiko also saw Gunnhild returning and moved to take a seat with the group, placing the larger bucket of popcorn down on the seat beside Tenshi where Gunny was do doubt headed to claim her drink anyway. Turning her eyes back to the ring in the center of the stadium the red neko watched intently to see the fighters and their coaches along with various other assistants they were bound to have. She didn't know an awful lot about fighting like this so it was all very new to her, the channel she'd tuned in to was helping explain some of the aspects though. It must have been a channel for newbies like herself.

"I thought you might like some popcorn as well." She said simply, to tag on to the end of Tenshi's chime and drink waving.

Gunny raised her head up with a sniff and a smile, whatever had been troubling her seemed to mostly slip away as the wannabe gunslinger looked over the offerings that were being made to her. "Dawww, you guys," the girl responded as she downed the drink in a single go and put the glass down with considerable force before she wrapped her athletic arms around the necks of both other girls rather lovingly.

"Thank you, both of you - but y'all know I can't just let you get away with this, right?" Gunnhild added as she telepathically wired more or less the cost of each item over to their accounts respectively, she never did like being in debt after all - that was when odd shit started happening.

Tenshi gave the strawberry blonde a gentle smile, which froze instantly as she watched Gunny downing it in one go. "You might eh-... Take it a bit," she frowned as she put the glass down again, being pulled into the larger Neko's arms. "Easier on those cocktails, they hit like a truck," Tenshi chimed happily, with a soft chuckle, taking a sip of her own drink. It was considerably sweet, yet minty and fresh. The vicarious, lucent green liquid hinting at the taste of it.

Soon Jackson had the group in their seats, taking up a row of chairs one section behind the ringside seats. Close enough to get a good look at the performers without being in the figurative splash zone. They were free tickets, after all!

Some popcorn fell to the floor as Gunny downed her drink and joined the group, seated between Keiko and Tenshi, one empty plastic cup that had only moments ago contained alcohol clattering to the concrete floor as well before rolling under other chairs. A large screen over an opening to some sort of backstage area, which had been displaying a LAW logo until now, suddenly went dark, causing the crowd to cheer and rise from their seats. Obviously the action was about to begin.

A moment later a bright, happy logo appeared on the screen above this entrance, an equally cheery song playing to accompany the first performer's appearance. The petite Neko was wearing what appeared to be a very pink, very frilly Duty Uniform with a pleated skirt. None of this was regulation, but it seemed very fitting for her bubbly personality. The Neko's arrival was met mostly with cheers as she hurried down a ramp that led towards the ring, dashing from side to side across the walkway to hand out fliers, hats, T-shirts and other promotional materials. Most of the audience members she approached seemed fairly appreciative, especially the children she noticeably aimed herself towards (and especially a few older male audience members who strained to lean as close as possible when she roamed nearby), although a few seemed a bit confused.

"From Kyoto, Yamatai, representing Doki Doki YSA!...it's "Doki Doki" Yukai!"

That familiar announcer's voice piped up again as the Neko scurried into the ring, tripping over the bottom rope in her haste, before bouncing to her feet and striking a very practiced pose. Yukai tossed the last T-shirt she'd managed to save (one more having rolled away from her as she navigated the ring ropes) into the crowd, landing practically in Ryu's lap! Although he was fairly certain he'd seen Keiko reflexively reach for the thrown object before restraining herself.


After a few moments of running around the ring to play to the crowd, her music faded away, and Yukai visibly cringed as a new song started up. The lights in the arena dimmed, as a half dozen or so men that appeared to be dressed as butlers or servants filed out from that entrance, lining up on either side of the initial walkway. After a few moments of anticipation, a curvaceous woman, most likely Nepleslian, sauntered into view. The men knelt one by one as she walked past them, ignoring the boos of the crowd as she approached the ring. Dressed in what appeared to be a stylized black and white maid outfit, obviously customized for both her impressive figure and the physical activity she was about to be involved in, the woman made quite the impression.

"And, her opponent...currently residing in the Money Town Casino's penthouse suite on Fortuna...the Maiden Black!"

Standing right outside the ring, the Maiden lifted her arms, face displaying an irritated expression after a few moments. Two of her apparent servants hurried to meet her, lifting her up by her arms and placing her on the ring apron. Before she could show any more displeasure they quickly used their weight to hold the ropes open for her, letting her elegantly enter the ring.

Yukai cowered in the furthest corner as her opponent entered, the lights raising again to show her gulping and fretting. The Maiden signaled to her men once more, who obediently fell to their hands and knees, bowing their heads, allowing her to stretch herself out across their backs. Smiling and waving to the still booing crowd, she lounged, putting that voluptuous body on display for a few moments longer, before the bell finally rang to signal the start of their match.

Hoshiko eventually took her seat, a bit down from Jackson to out some of the students between her and him. It wasn't that she was avoiding the man, she simply had a job to do as a guardian, and with how spastic these children seemed it was probably for the best that she try to start corral them. Then the intros started as drinks were consumed and tossed aside.

The Gunny girl had returned to sit with her friends, but Hoshiko had caught the interactions between the group and had seen her repay and tried to stay out of debt to the others. It was a good mentality to have as she reclined back a bit in her seat to simply take in the event. The smaller "Doki Doki" fighter came first and Hoshiko tracked the rolled up t-shirt as it landed in Ryu's lap but otherwise she cared less.

Then the other fighter made her appearance and suddenly Hoshiko felt a little... Less. The Agent crossed her arms over her chest and glared softly, a touch abashed at her smaller frame and build but otherwise didn't do much in terms of reactions. This was all pointless to her after all...

Gunnhild took a moment to lightly tousle her smaller friend's raven hair before finally releasing both friends from her loving embrace as the somewhat over-enthusiastic Neko felt it all go straight to her liver along with a light buzzing in her head as she watched the two fighters enter the ring, Gunny looked down at her own chest then back to the rather curvy Nepleslian with a shrug as she spoke, "I'll be fiiiine Tenshi, I have you two to take care of me."

The strawberry blonde noticed a few looks of jealousy coming from their SAINT guardian and giggle slightly before piping up mentally, ~Don't feel too jealous Miss H, big ones'd just get in the way anyway~ was the message Gunny shot across before teasingly re-adjusting her own assets, she was glad she was more bottom-heavy anyway - somehow young Miss Grimsdottir felt like it suited her better.

The red neko had stayed mostly still when embraced by Gunny once again for fear of knocking over the popcorn she'd gotten for her friend. It wasn't the money she was worried would be wasted but rather than her friend might get upset and even miss out entirely since they couldn't leave now without missing the show. She appreciated the reimbursement too although she'd been perfectly fine not getting anything back for it, she had gotten it as a gift of sorts anyway.

Keiko had tried her best not to gasp when seeing the shirts being handed out all over the place, her collection was already somewhat impressive but this was one of the limited shirts she hadn't yet gotten one of because she never came to these sorts of events and her allowance did not allow her to buy one online. Seeing it fly so close she had begun reaching for it when she remembered who she was with and smoothly played off the action as her messing with her hair, correcting several strands and putting it all back in its place.

Next time she'd get it.

Gunny and Hoshiko weren't the only ones admiring the stacked Nepleslian in the ring. After standing she dismissed her two servants, the line of butlers returning up the ramp to disappear backstage, and some members of the audience were already making their appreciation known. Shouts of "Please marry me Maiden!" and "I love you Mistress Black!" rose above the general buzz of the crowd. After another glare at Yukai sent her scuttling back into a corner, the Maiden moved to one side of the ring, leaning over the ropes to yell back at some of her more vocal fans. "You're not worthy!"

The general crowd began to boo, with the Maiden sneering and turning to face her opponent again as the bell finally rang to officially begin the match. The two circled for a few moments before locking up, only briefly struggling for position before the Maiden took control of her smaller opponent, cinching in a snug side headlock. The commentators were talking up the size and strength advantage the darkly garbed wrestler had over the more petite performer as well. All of this might be just a bit confusing to the row of high school Neko. Any of them would easily lift more than a Nepleslian, even one a foot taller than them. This obviously wasn't a normal fight.

About that time, a spirited chant of "We're not worthy!" began to spread through the audience, having begun with some of the fans the Maiden had insulted earlier. Even some of the people that had been booing a moment before were joining in.

Wrestling was weird, they were starting to realize.

Jackson took his seat and joined in with the cheering. Stuff like this was highly popular on Nepleslia, after all. Might as well go with the flow, which he noticed his coworker was not.

With a small sigh and wistful grin, he thought: SAINT operatives...

He kept a watch on the students, though, particularly Gunny. While he wasn't against drinking (lord knows he'd done his share of it), the young, impulsive neko might end up forgetting that this was still a school function and teachers were present. Seriously, these kids needed to learn how to hide things from their CO if they were gonna survive- NO! No, Jax, gotta be a good "role-model" now.

Like right now, watching Keiko try to hide the fact that she was having fun. He shook his head. One of the issues he had with tank-grown soldiers was that they never had an opportunity to be "young and dumb" like he'd once been. That lack of youthfulness was how you got Tsugukas. And at Zenjinkaze, they were not trying to create Tsugukas.

A shirt flew in his direction, and he quickly snagged it out of the air, then tossed it to Keiko, keeping cool and facing the ring as if it hadn't happened at all.

On the other end of the group, Addaiel ghosted right the hell out of nowhere, sitting on the other side of Hoshiko, as they'd no doubt learned he had a habit of doing, holding a bowl of nachos. No one had even seen him leave. He seemed rather content while munching on the cheesy goodness, and even let out a surprised "hm!" when a free t-shirt fell from the heavens. Then, his eyes began to dart to and fro as he began to do that weird "thing" he'd inherited from his mom. He sized up the fighters, making notes on who he thought would win. Then, he scanned the room for vantage points, escape routes, location of security, anyone who looked out of place. Things a sniper did.

After this, he'd be able to recount what hand the woman three rows down favored, the chipped paint on the side of the ring, but absolutely nothing about the fight.

Tenshi was more reserved with her drink, taking another sip of alcohol as she sighed. "Nope." She stated simply towards her classmate. "Nope," she stated again before Gunny could even form a counter-argument. "I'm not dragging and babysitting your drunken ass," the lithe Nekovalkyrja retorted. At the same time, she noted Hoshiko folding her hands across her chest. Though even then, the SAINT was bigger than she was. Though with a shrug and acting out of accord. She stood up, placing her drink down. "High," she stated simply towards Gunny. Before using the larger Neko as a step-up. Jumping and literally being thrown quite high up in the air. "Yeet!" She called out loudly. Grasping at a shirt that flew by.

At the same time, Hoshiko would hear Tenshi's thoughts seep in. Somewhat encrypted to make it private, it seemed decent, yet easily enforced and decoded. It was moreso on the side of being secured by respect, rather than heavy encryption; "You shouldn't make it that obvious, Miss Hoshiko, though you're beautiful regardless. It isn't always about size."

It was then that the ravenette came falling down. Not even making an effort to break her fall or manipulate gravity. A trust excercise, she completely expected the larger and stronger yellow-skinned Neko to catch her again.
