Azores Weather Report
Wooh! It's starting to get windy over here! Heat is slowing down, and everyone is now starting to prepare for less rain and more sweaters! Everyone be ready! It's cool now, but wait until it gets even colder! Waves are coming harder and larger in the evening so watch out night-swimmers! This has been another Azores Weather Report!
Maria couldn't quite explain what and why she was doing. Every cell in her body demanded an explanation, but the Forgotten had none to give. Perhaps it was out of some odd whim, she never really made any sense recently. Being a nun cloistered away from society for so long probably made her lose some marbles. Though then again, she hasn't taken her vows yet. There was something tempting and devilish about something small like this.
Hopefully people don't mind with just a small peck on the cheek. ...Right?
Atop one of the nearby stalls stood Iris and her Persona Stańczyk looking down on the scene. There were countless stands, each with their own alluring attractions, but she was here for one kind in particular: kissing booths. Her gloved hands held loosely onto a ticket as the girl scanned the area quietly humming to herself all the while. Eventually her gaze landed on one person in particular -- a blue-haired girl in a nun costume by the name of Maria. The attire she wore easily gave away her status and brought a chuckle to the terrorist's lips. It looked like the servants of Isla weren't so above "sin" after all. Striking a confident pose and giving her the Persona the signal, a simple nod, Iris shot forward with a speed that made her appear as little more than a black blur.
"Human by day, demon by night...!"
There were two others in the way, presumably waiting for a kiss of their own, but they'd be waiting a bit longer. Sure, she could have waited her turn like a good little girl, but that was no fun! What sort of terrorist respected orderly things like lines?! So, she'd zip past them both with unparalleled speed, though if the two wished to compete with her then they certainly could: it was an ability that they all shared known as Shadow Accel. Regardless, between her headstart and the prior premeditation, Iris would likely be able to make it there first just as she intended. The midnight-black streaks coming off her back and flowing through the wind would dissipate and gradually fade as what once was a blur would now reveal its true form.
"Psyche Terrorist Iris is ready to sully the lips of Isla's finest!"
At this moment Stańczyk would act as planned. The wind in the area would pick up in the area and engulf both the stand and the surrounding area. While it wouldn't do damage to any people or objects present, it would push Maria forward and fling back any who attempted to intrude. Conveniently enough, it'd also hurl her coffin to the side if it was nearby her and should this go unstopped would put it just out of her reach. The winds danced and the terrorist smirked as she reached forward toward Maria with one hand using it to try and cover her eyes. Meanwhile the other would reach up to the mask she was wearing and lift it up every so slightly just enough to expose the lips. A mischevious grin rested on her face (visible to any onlookers) as she maneuvered her lips and placed them over Maria's own for a few seconds. The winds began to die down and pulling back from the kiss, Iris would push the mask fully over her face once again.
Chains would appear on her wrist, albeit it in gold as opposed to their usual ethereal blue, and with a horizontal kick she'd shatter them into pieces. Stańczyk would appear behind her and begin to change shape before engulfing her with its now liquidy body and vanishing without a trace.
The two, Persona and Psyche Terrorist, were gone and in their place was a single ticket which Maria would be able to find resting in the palm of their hand.
Maria was rather taken back at how quick someone showed up. She really counted on nobody coming up towards her. But not only was there one, there was two people interested in this botched service! The postulant felt like quitting now, even if her instructor pushed her into this. She hasn't even kissed anyone in her life, it was suffice to say her love life was dismal. Thankfully the customer's companion seemed to heavily suggest that she refuse, Maria was quite more than glad to do so to save them both the embarrassment.
That is, until it came.
The Cadet was completely caught off guard. Nothing could've prepared her for this. Even when her first kiss was taken. Eyes widening at the warm and soft sensation entering her, she was at a loss at what was happening. The Phantom that had stolen her first, had already made her exit as she left Maria dumbfounded with a blank stare at the nothingness in front of her.
At first she finally touched her lips with a callused finger, and next she started to redden into a ripe tomato hue.
It seemed even Masako was unable to react in time. All she knew was that there was a blur, darkness, wind, a powerful force pushing her back, and what appeared to be someone... stealing a kiss?!
"H-halt!" She cried out once she regained her senses, "Even if it's a kiss, stealing is against the law!" A second later, she realized that this was a crime committed by a Psyche Terrorist. She summoned her katana and gave chase. "I SAID HALT IN THE NAME OF THE LAW!"
Tatum just stared in awe at what happened. This was definitely not what she expected. This was beyond what she expected. In the end, she could only think of one line.
... she was so cool... and she kissed someone without consent... "GAAAAH! Are you alright?! She didn't hurt you did she? Don't worry, me and Masako will make her apologize!!!" With that, the child ran off after Masako and the rather dashing and cool terrorist.
Tatum then returned to say, "Just pretend that we got our kiss so you can get your ticket! Actually, here!" She gave the woman a note saying, "Please allow her to have an extra ticket for her trouble." "Sorry this happened, we'll catch her and make her apologize, I promise!" With that, she was finally gone.
Now, since Danielle had been offering kisses to a wide variety of people already, she had decided to take a small break from her post at the booth by checking out what the Carnival had to offer. What she hadn't realised until she actually started looking around was... that the booths for kissing were popular... They were freaking everywhere. People sure were desperate for affection in these times, eh? Well, considering what was currently going on in her life, she certainly didn't blame those affected by the events, but the rest...? Maybe it was just some silly trend going on. However... there was one booth in paticular which stood out to her. A small, rather inconspicuous booth with a nun on the other end. Or at least, that's what Danielle assumed, judging by her choice of clothing. And the shocked expression on her face told her that maaaaybe she wasn't exactly used to this kissing buissness. Nor was Danielle really. She didn't know why her legs brought her over to that booth, she just kind of... let her legs guide her. The purple-haired girl approached the nun with a rather stern expression on her face. "Erm... I... Ugh... she stopped mid-sentence. This just felt off... She had already kissed Kira... was this too much? After a couple of moments spent internally struggling with her own thoughts regarding what she should say, Danielle eventually opened her mouth. "...Eh, screw it. I'd like a kiss, miss..."
She really didn't know what to make any of this. Her first kiss stolen like taking a candy from a baby and the earlier duo of customers leaving, this was too much for a start. But even more so when just another customer came by. What a day. Maria finally sighed and set aside the tickets that were given to her.
"Um... Sure," she agreed hesitantly.
But what Danielle might have wanted, wasn't really given to her. Her gentle lips met against the Wild Card's cheek before Maria retreated away at a comfortable distance in her booth. "Will that suffice?"
Danielle blinked. It had gone so quickly... just like that, it was over. "Yes, it'll do." She replied with a warm smile, returning the gesture herself, albeit a bit awkwardly. "Thank you. Have a good day!" And with that, she left, swiping up her one ticket. It had been worth it. That kiss wasn't too bad...
