Her sneaker stepped onto the stairs, ready to make her way into the hotel, when she heard a soft noise behind her. She knew she had heard it before, but she couldn't quite place from where or what it might signify. The blonde resisted the urge to turn her head, terrified that it might be related to those awful Heartless from the fight in the street.

"Usagi!" called a familiar voice. "Thank goodness you're safe!"

At that, she turned to see the violet cat from before, blue eyes wide. She instinctively opened for an embrace when the feline jumped towards her, wrapping her arms around the furry creature, burying her face in the soft fur. Luna's warmth reminded her of her mother, always ready to wrap her in a hug when anything went wrong. She took what comfort she could now, from the cat she had met only hours ago. Not wanting to pause for too long, she walked into the hotel behind Mamoru, carrying the feline in her arms, feeling more secure with something to hold on to.

Usagi had been trying to pay attention to all the young man explained to them, but she had never been one for strategy or planning. She didn't mind helping him with whatever he needed... but she wasn't sure she'd actually be of any use.

How did this man know nothing about sacred fires or shrines?

What kind of backwards place was this? She'd expected there to be differences ever since her feet touched the cold grey cobblestone, for she obviously was no longer home, but this? This bordered blasphemy.

No one else seemed bothered by this revelation, as the conversation quickly turned to names. Names of all things! They shared their names so easily, without pause or hesitation. And yet, clearly all of them were strangers with one another, with perhaps an exception between the sky-falling blonde and the darkly-clad man.

Names were precious, powerful. To be kept closely guarded until you knew you could trust the person you shared it with.

Were all of these people naive, to be so unwary of strangers, or just ignorant?

Instead of giving them the use of her name, Rei crossed her arms and remained silent, eyes piercing from one person to the other. She followed them, as she would not snub the sign gifted to her from Phobos and Deimos, but she did not have to be friendly about it. Not with people who did everything with such brazen impiety.

She kept note of all the names they shared, however. If they were going to give them away so easily, the least she could do was pay attention. Even as she frowned in judgment at the openness of it all.

Rei paid close attention to all of the information Mamoru spoke of. Knowing the details of how this place worked was the first step in getting herself back home. But as he finished his explanation with a request, Rei's frown turned to a glare.

Of course there was payment needed for this exchange of information. Her posture tensed. What could they ask of her? She had no home, no money. She did not even have her rice papers or spiced incense. All she had was this strange weapon that had appeared to her, but the entire group had one of their own so why would they need hers? She would not give away her only weapon so easily.

"What do you want, then?" she demanded. The words bit, hot with determination to keep what little she had left to her.

Minako hesitated outside the door, blue eyes looking back towards the rooftops on the street. She had managed to keep her thoughts to herself about the "Traverse Town Defenders," and no one seemed to have noticed the critical look volleyed at the previously-mouthy brunette—already pledging her loyalty to Mamoru, of all people! The skepticism from Makoto's earlier outburst apparently counted for very little. As she stared out at the skyline of her forced temporary town, keen eyes caught a flash of white observing from a distance.

Artemis!

She caught something in her peripheral vision, whirling around, Keyblade ready... but it wasn't a Heartless. It was a different cat, but one that looked shockingly familiar. If Artemis had darker fur and differently-coloured eyes, she might have mistaken the feline that leaped into Usagi's arms as her own companion. The resemblance was uncanny. The pigtailed girl accepted the cat and strolled inside.

Minako found herself both charmed and concerned by the ease with which Usagi moved through her life. She seemed so trusting. The girl with the red ribbon in her hair certainly couldn't say the same for herself. She had avoided Mamoru and his gang of misfits precisely because she didn't trust them.

When she heard the biting question directed to Mamoru, she realized she wasn't the only one.

She watched the girl with dark violet hair, eyes of the same colour focused on Mamoru in a way Minako recognized: the same mistrustful way she herself often regarded him. The hostile body language of the woman in the red jacket was unmistakable. The question, unlike the blind faith of the other three, was rational. They weren't pals trying to build a puzzle together. They were all in danger and they operated with different motives and goals.

The blonde grinned, waiting for Mamoru's response. She liked this girl already.

The heated question posed by her previous battle partner snapped Makoto back to reality. There she went again, getting entranced by attractive men. She could practically hear her trainers back home nagging her about it. 

But after hearing Mamoru's explanation of what exactly this world was, Makoto doubted that she even had trainers back home, at this point. Although she had been slightly foolish to offer her services so soon, part of her didn't regret it. She could tell a leader from a follower, and this man seemed to know more than Makoto ever would. Regardless of how...enchanting...a man might be, Makoto would never reach the point of blind foolishness.

Get your information and get out, she told herself. Her people were her top priority. But there was an empty feeling in her heart, as if her original plan may not come to pass. She forced herself to ask the question that formed a lump in her throat: "So...since we're all here, does that mean..." she gulped. "Does that mean our homes have been destroyed?"

His head snapped up at the sound of a new voice, brow quirking incredulously as a little dark-colored cat appeared seemingly out of nowhere to launch itself into Usagi's arms. And talked. Was this normal? Maybe this was normal? He tried to hide his surprise, knowing that Umino's reaction would tell him whether it was unusual or not. Usagi entered, cat still in her arms, and the quiet girl in red suddenly spoke up, her determined tone demanding answers, suspicions clear enough. He glanced from her to Minako and back, the blonde actually grinning at the circumstances. Figures. The girl in red's question was followed by one from Makoto, hers a lot quieter. He shook his head, deciding to answer hers first, to offer reassurance where he could. "Not necessarily," he replied, "You can get here without that happening, and unless you know which is yours," he glanced up pointedly, then back at her, "There's no telling unless you try to go back."

"And what I want," he continued, looking to the other wielder, "is to lock this world to keep it safe from the Heartless."

Was... that girl staring?

Rei turned her glare towards the sky-falling blonde, the one named Minako—a strange name. Fitting for a strange girl who fell from heights with ease. Did she not know that staring was rude?

Rei shifted her position, raising a questioning eyebrow at such striking blue scrutiny. Strange color, blue. Minako's eyes reminded her of those rare blue flowers found high in the mountains. They bloomed but once every few years, and the trek upwards was fraught with dangers. They were pretty, vibrant and deep in color, but pointless for their poisonous quality when used in medicines. Strange how this girl's eyes were the exact same color.

Wait, was she now the one who stared?

With that abrupt thought, Rei turned her head and put her attention back onto Mamoru as she awaited the answer to her question. She hadn't been staring, just observing. There was a differenece.  

The brunette girl, Makoto, spoke her own question now. Her question had been one that Rei never once thought a possibility. Destroyed? No, that's impossible. Her home had been under attack, that was true enough. And she'd been forced to leave at the worst time possible. But destroyed?

No. Phobos and Deimos wouldn't allow that.

Mamoru spoke, finally, and answered Makoto's question first. While it was reassuring to hear that the possibility to go back home existed, Rei couldn't help an indignant shift of her shoulders at being answered last when she'd been first to ask. What was it with these people and their manners?

And, of course, the words he spoke were absolute gibberish. "Do you speak in riddles to mock me?" she questioned, glare intensifying. "Speak plainly, or do not speak at all."

He met the intense gaze, but did not reflect the energy of it, instead coming off as only unafraid and unintimidated. "I'm speaking as plainly as I can," he stated patiently, "I want to lock this world to keep it safe, and the only way to lock it is with a key." With a small effort of will, the Enigmatic Rose came to hand. He held it horizontally so that it crossed his chest, keeping it close to him as an attempt at displaying no threat towards her, having a general idea of how badly that would go off. "With so many innocent refugees entering this world, I want them to know peace upon arriving. We haven't been able to find the lock yet, but with more of us searching and puzzling it out our chances improve.

He glanced towards Minako, "If you don't want to help that's up to you," he said, "but you can come in and rest anyway."

She followed inside, not because Mamoru insisted on it, but because she understood her own mission. Her eyes may have been locked on the beautiful young woman with the sharp tongue, but her focus remained on Usagi. If Artemis was outside but not making his presence more known, she knew he approved of what she was doing. If Usagi intended to stay here, it was too soon for Minako to leave. She needed more observation of the other blonde, or she wouldn't have enough information when she and Artemis continued to form their strategy.

She didn't bother replying to his statement; there were more than enough questions from everyone else. She would have plenty of time later to criticize and comment.

The way Mamoru so openly laid out his problems and his plan made Minako twitch. Judging by the reactions of some of the other girls, they didn't even understand what he was saying. It reminded her of a metallurgist detailing the merits of alloy composition to a customer who just wanted pretty jewelry. Based on the comments, they had been dumped here, unaware of the state of their homes, with no knowledge of why. That was something Minako certainly understood. She remembered her own confusion when first arriving here. If this young man had been her first point of contact, instead of Artemis... She didn't think she'd be fighting so hard.

At least she knew they shared a few of the same goals. But compared to the scope of her own, his seemed tiny and narrow by comparison.

Makoto felt a small glimmer of hope in her heart for her home and her people. Not all was definitely lost, it seemed. So now she needed to find a way back to her own world, but how? She had no means of transportation, not much experience with her new weapon, and the only people who could help her probably had their own agendas, too.

So maybe they needed to work together. 

Makoto took a deep breath, weighing her options. She could leave now, try to find a way out on her own, possible achieve success, travel home at who-knows-what cost, to the possibility of her home not even being there. Or, she could stick with Mamoru and whoever else decided to travel with him, get more information, learn how to fight with this Keyblade, and possibly hitch a ride between worlds. Mamoru seemed to know enough about how things worked around here, and she highly doubted he would stick around this town unless he had no other choice. 

Her decision was made. If she wanted to help herself, she needed to help others, first. 

"Well, what are we waiting for? We're not going to find this keyhole by just standing around. We could split up - do you have a map or something? A way to communicate would be nice, too." Makoto punched her palm, sharing a grin that meant she was ready for action. As terrifying as those monsters from before were, she was itching to burn some more energy and bust some bad guys.

She accepted his answer, though it did nothing to clear away any questions. Lock this world? What did that even mean?

Rei did not understand his means of keeping a place safe--how could a world be locked?-- but she did understand the desire to offer safety to an entire world. If she could do such a thing back home, perhaps her people would never fear attacks ever again. Maybe her grandfather could live the rest of his days in peace--for he was still alive, no matter how precarious a situation she'd been forced to leave him in. Rei downright refused any other option.

That this man wanted to offer such protections to his own world--if this even was his world--earned him some respect in her eyes. He needed help with knowing how to properly answer questions, but at least his heart seemed kind.

Makoto seemed to think much the same, as, with a burst of enthusiasm, she got down to the business of putting together some semblance of a plan. Rei was not awash with any such energy. There were too many things still left unanswered for her to agree wholeheartedly.

Though Mamoru's method of answering questions left her exasperated with even more questions, there was still more she needed to know. "Can this...locking be done to other worlds? If I help you, will you teach me?"

"Yes."

She didn't intend to answer the dark-haired girl's question aloud. If it were Mamoru, she wouldn't have offered the information so readily. But this young woman in red... Minako already liked her boldness and self-assuredness. There was something in there that Minako recognized in herself. That connection, something she was only slowly discovering now, it drew her forward, it was enough to make her give voice to information she knew Artemis would have preferred she keep quiet on.

After all, it was Artemis who had taught her. She hadn't been able to find the keyhole protecting the heart of her own home. It remained in as much danger as the worlds of these others seemed to be. But Artemis had taught her about it. He guided her. She had experience. She didn't want to teach these people, not initially, but that was something she could do. Artemis would have frowned at anything that might jeopardize the mission, but he wasn't here right now. If she had to explain it to him later, she'd have to hope he'd understand.

Ami followed the others into the hotel looking around then saw the one know as Usagi holding a cat and smiled at them. She then turned to want to ask Mamoru some questions but the others were asking almost the same ones Ami wished to ask, so, for now, she decided to just listen to all of them. She began to think about what they said about keyholes and fixing their worlds and she was thinking of hers in Mariner's Landing. 'I do miss home hopefully this keyhole thing can fix it and get me home too' she thought. Then the taller one from earlier Makoto spoke saying she thought they should go now, but Ami spoke up, "Um.Makoto..I really think we need to have a plan first then we can go out and look for it."

Minako stepped inside, and he let out a mental sigh of relief. Maybe now she'd share what she knew and they could move forward. Umino would probably ask her a thousand questions and make ten thousands inferences from it, but before they were all even inside the lobby Makoto was eager to start looking for the keyhole, proving herself to be more of a doer than a planner. He looked to her to answer when the girl in red turned to him to ask about sealing other worlds, her question answered by none other than Minako, the blonde supporting what Umino had told him, but that the girl had asked if it could be taught and Minako replied yes made him wonder if she had actually done it before, or knew the mechanics of how to actually do it. Umino made it sound like it should be as easy as inserting the keyblade in and turning like you would with a normal lock, but they were just going off of suppositions. 

"We've got a map set up inside," he supplied for Makoto and Ami's benefit, figuring that if they met Umino now he could field some of their questions and break down what they knew. He motioned to the elevator, "Third floor," and waited for the last of them to come in off the street, sight wandering to see if he could spot Motoki or Naru anywhere.

"Heroes don't need plans," Makoto responded simply to the blue-haired girl. She continued following Mamoru, keeping a hand in her pocket as she walked, and she paused outside of the...metal box thingy. She stared at it, her eyes full of wonder, curiosity, and a little wariness. She watched the black-clad man fearlessly step in, and deducted that the odd machinery must be safe if he trusted it. Mirroring his apparent fearlessness, Makoto stepped in proudly and stood with her arms crossed over her chest.

She almost scoffed at the mention of a map. Was this town seriously so large that a map was needed? Makoto could navigate entire forests on instinct alone - surely after being here for so long, Mamoru didn't need a map? She opened her mouth to make a comment, but decided otherwise. Perhaps she was too quick to judge.

Usagi didn't bother to add her opinion as the others talked. She kept her arms wrapped around the cat, sinking into that sense of security. She didn't want to think about her home and whether or not it was destroyed. She didn't want to fight, either. She didn't want any of this, and it wasn't fair that she had been wrapped up in any of it. It wasn't fair for any of them.

The blonde kept quiet as she followed the group, ready to board the elevator and look at a map she didn't care about simply because she didn't want to be alone.

"Heroes don't need plans," The taller girl said to her. 'I know I'm right' she thought as she continued to follow Mamoru into the elevator waiting to go up. She then looked over at Usagi and noticed how quiet she was and Ami noted to try to talk to her later. She wanted to make sure to become friends with these people so it would be easier to work with them and help everyone get back home.

She felt mildly curious to see the map that Mamoru and his ragtag group used. She had her own, drawn up with Artemis' help after days of scouting across rooftops in Traverse Town. Maybe she'd give them a few tips. Maybe. She still wasn't too keen on being here—other people were a liability. She had her mission to focus on. But, of course, that is why she was here: the mission. Blue eyes glanced once again towards the pigtailed girl cradling a feline in her arms. That cat... She couldn't shake the strange sense that the cat and Artemis had more in common than just their species. She'd have to ask him about it when she had a chance.

The brunette's comment made her swallow a snort, choking on the laugh so she wouldn't betray it. Only fools worked without plans. Good grief.

The elevator took them to the third floor, wherein they exited and Mamoru lead them to a room at the end of the hall. He knocked twice, paused, then once again, and, immediately, locks up and down the door unlocked and the door swung inwards to reveal a shorter young man, though in general seemed to be around their age. He had messy brown hair and thick glasses and was talking even before looking at them -

"That was a ton of heartless following that one girl! What, like, eight? And all that screaming - that must've been --" the young man in blue paused, eyes moving from Mamoru to the girls surrounding him, "interesting," he finished, though whether it was the same thought was up for debate. "Who're your friends, Mamoru? More Defenders recruits?"

"Not... exactly," Mamoru replied, "but we'd better let them in."

Umino straightened, realized he had been blocking the door, and laughed nervously, putting his hand behind his head as he stepped back to let them parade into the room. When Minako entered, his jaw practically dropped. "Minako?" he whispered, looking to Mamoru, who waited outside the doorway until the last of them moved through. "Minako?!" he repeated in a not-so-quiet whisper as Mamoru passed him and he quickly shut the door and relocked everything in a hurry to follow them in, his whole body practically thrumming with questions that apparently Mamoru wasn't going to just tell him, much to his disbelief bECAUSE MINAKO WAS IN THEIR HIDEOUT

"Everyone," Mamoru called, standing beside Umino and placing a hand on the shorter guy's shoulder, "This is Umino. He's the brains of the operation. Umino," he said, looking down to his friend and then out at the five girls, "You already know Minako. This is Makoto, Ami, Usagi and..." he paused on the girl in red, having not been offered her name, "her," he said, somehow not sounding too awkward with that. "Keyblade wielders."

Umino's excited agitation stopped entirely, as though he were suddenly froze. "All... of... them?" he asked quietly.

"All of them." Mamoru replied.

And Umino fainted.


Mamoru caught hold of his shirt on the way down, cushioning the fall, and looked apologetically to the group, "He'll just need a minute."

The room wrote:
The room was more like a small suite. They stood in a living room/kitchenette combination that held a couch, a low table, a higher table with two chairs, and a small countertop area. Pictures were framed around the pink-wallpapered walls, and there was an adjoining bedroom, but the primary feature of the room was all of the books and maps. Books were practically piled on every surface, opened to random pages with bookmarks sticking out like tongues from closed tomes, some in strange languages. The maps unfurled on every surface - including along the back of the couch - were all of Traverse Town and its different districts, with some spaces circled in blue and x'd out in red.

The blonde groaned, pressing fingers to her forehead. Of course. She knew she shouldn't have come here, and this is what she got for it. Tsking to herself, she strode over to the kitchenette and rifled through the cabinets, finding a cup and filling it with water. Minako marched back over to where Mamoru cradled the limp form of the shorter, scruffier young man.

"Here," she offered, holding the cup out. He could either drink some when he came to or Mamoru could splash some on his face.

She took a few steps back then, knowing they needed to give him some room. She walked over to the map instead, blue eyes critiquing it, comparing it to her own notes.

"Thanks," Mamoru replied casually, accepting the cup and placing it on the floor beside him until he freed his other hand. As they looked around the room, he poured some of the water into one hand and flicked it onto Umino's face with the other, saving the rest to let him drink when he woke up.

"Is he alright?" spoke a panicked voice, the pigtailed girl moving closer to Mamoru and Umino as she spoke.

Usagi knew she was the last person in the room qualified to provide first aid, but even though she had just met this person, watching him collapse tugged at her heart. Blue eyes darted from the young man, to the other young man supporting him, to the blonde who brought over water, and back to the others standing there. She wanted to do something, to try and help, but she didn't know what to do. Her hands clutched Luna tighter, not even noticing the cat's conspicuous silence since their arrival in this safe haven.

She knelt down near Mamoru and Umino, watching, trying not to crowd but wishing she could help revive the fainted man.

"He'll be fine, he's just a little over-excitable," Mamoru looked up after flicking more water in his friend's face and found Usagi kneeling on Umino's other side, looking concerned despite having never met Umino before now. She was pretty, and it made him pause for a moment; he felt like he should've realized that before now, but fighting Heartless had drawn his attention to other things. He refocused his attention to Umino. "I see you have a friend," he ventured conversationally, nodding towards the cat in her arms. "From your home world?"

It was different, being this close to him, when her life wasn't being threatened by horrible monsters in this unfamiliar place. When he responded, she looked over, and suddenly found herself spellbound by his eyes. She hadn't realized it, maybe because of the thick frames of his white glasses. They were so blue. She thought of the beautiful crystalline seas back in Silver Millennium. She used to spend time there, sometimes, near the white sand beaches. Yet there was something else there, something so foreign and interesting. Usagi opened her mouth as if to ask a question, but closed it and turned away, just in time for him to ask one of his own.

"Oh..." she replied, unsure of what to say about Luna. "No, she found me here."

She looked down at the cat, wondering if it would choose to speak again. Luna was staring closely at Mamoru, eyes concentrated, but her lips did not even part for an attempt at a "normal cat" meow.

"Is he from your world?" Usagi asked, gesturing to Umino. She hoped he would rouse soon.

The cat didn't come in with her? He patted Umino's cheek to resist the urge to look the cat over again. Had he seen a cat like that before? He was pretty sure he hadn't, but if she and the cat had just met and the cat was just that friendly surely someone would've seen it around by now. Maybe Naru would know something? He felt another pair of eyes on him -

Was the cat... staring? 

He caught Usagi's gesture and looked away from the blue-eyed feline to glance at her again, then quickly back at Umino when an odd feeling seemed to flutter in his chest. "No, actually, but he was one of the first people I met when I woke up." His eyes moved to her again, unable to help himself. "He's a good guy - a little loud and a bit obsessive, but he's got a good heart." There was something about her... He shrugged, repositioning Umino to make him more comfortable "He should be back up in a second; this happens every time he's met or even just heard of another keyblade wielder."

Makoto felt extremely crowded in this small room, especially with how tall she was, so she tried to distract herself from the stuffiness by looking around. The wiry guy who let them in had passed out, and she was definitely not a designated healer back home, so she let the others tend to him while she approached a pile of books sitting on a tabletop. She picked up the top one, encased in blood-red leather with gold lettering embossed on the spine and on the front. She opened it up, and instantly felt her head spin. There were so many words all over the pages, taking up any and all space available. Her eyes felt like they were spinning, and she quickly put the book down. Reading had never really been taught back in Jove's Landing - it was never needed. Only the scribes had any knowledge of how to even hold a writing utensil. 

Looking for something else, Makoto noticed Minako standing near the large map covered in X's and O's. She approached and crossed her arms over her chest, examining the outline of the area. There were three districts, it seemed, each with different attributes and markings. "What do the symbols mean?" she asked, looking to Minako and again to Mamoru. She wasn't sure which would know the answer, but she was interested enough to be patient.

Usagi blinked, glancing from Umino to Mamoru and back again.

"Every time?" she asked, incredulous. "Does he faint a lot? Does he need to see a doctor? Maybe he has a condition?"

It didn't occur to her that Keyblade holders were few and far between in Traverse Town. After all, she was standing in a crowd of them! Her mind slowly built up a backstory that the masked man certainly hadn't elaborated on. She guessed there must be lots of other Keyblade fighters living within this hotel. Perhaps Umino was their leader, sort of like her mother's role back home.

Thinking about her mother sent a twinge of homesickness through her heart, even as she leaned over the messy-haired young man who looked nothing like the beautiful, elegant Queen she respected and loved with her entire heart. She tried to keep it together, tried not to let tears blur her vision. Usagi looked away, trying to think about better things, and felt a bit of surprise when Luna began purring softly.

"Hang in there, Usagi," the cat whispered, trying to keep her voice low.

Rei kept her thoughts to herself. Arms crossed, eyebrows furrowed, she was not a vision of friendliness, but she did follow them inside. She listened, too, even in her silence. Information was important. Vital. She would not pass up the opportunity to learn more about this place.

The acquisition of this information was stopped dead cold as the boy with the large glasses fell over in a faint. Rei blinked as she looked at his prone form. Was that boy ill? She took a step away, unwilling to catch the same affliction. She did not know this Umino well enough to touch and care for him. She would leave that to the others who seemed prepared to risk the consequences.

Rei left the boy to their care and turned her attention to the maps and the books. That largest map was already occupied, so Rei moved to the books. Reading was revered back home, a way to learn and understand the world around them. A way to become one with Phobos and Deimos's teachings. She wondered what kind of information could be held in the books in this cold place?

She picked up the one closest to her, flipping open to a random page, glancing over the text. She frowned. Holding the book in a way her grandfather would have condemned, Rei turned towards the others. "What is this?" she demanded, confusion and frustration melding together. For the books were written in a language she'd never seen before. And Rei was well-versed in many different languages, and could, at the very least, recognize them when she saw them even if she might not understand them. "Why do you own books of gibberish?"

She placed it back onto the pile, still holding reverence to the tome even as she was annoyed by its mere presence, and walked over to the large map, not waiting for an answer. At least a map could be understood without needing to know a language beforehand. As she studied it, she frowned when she couldn't figure out where her home lie upon its sketched surface.

He heard Makoto's question, but Usagi was closer and that she was worried about Umino put her question as first priority, to him anyway. He didn't want her to keep worrying. He offered her a smile, "Nah," he said quietly, "It's only been the three times - it barely constitutes as "every"; I'm sorry to have worried you - he's just a little excitable." His smile widened a bit, realizing she'd find that out soon enough. 

Keeping where he was, without even jostling his companion, he looked over to Makoto and guessed at what symbols she meant based on the map she was nearest. "Places we thought the keyhole would be; the x's mark where we've checked."

From another point of the room, the girl in red remarked about the book's language in near disgust, and he called back, "It's one of the mage-languages; Umino knows how to read it.

"Hang in there, Usagi." He looked around for Ami, half-expecting to find her at Usagi's shoulder for how close that other voice had sounded, but the blue-haired girl was not there. The only one who was, was... the cat? ... Cat's couldn't talk. He was fairly certain. ... The Dalmatians couldn't talk, he knew that much. Though he supposed he hadn't actually asked Pongo a question before -- but from the cat to Usagi, he realized the bigger picture. She looked distraught. Was she really that worried? Concerned, he started to reach out, "Hey, he'll be okay --"

"I'm fine," Umino's voice croaked out and, like a shot, he sat up, blocking Mamoru's reach. He rubbed at his messy hair as though scratching his head, "Though I thought you said they were all keyblade wielders, funny right?" Mamoru offered him the rest of the water and Umino took it, quickly gulping it down, "Because the probability of that likelihood is incredibly small - the mere idea that there could be so many keyblade wielders is laughable!" He laughed for effect, turning back to fix Mamoru with a grin, "You're funny, Mamoru." Mamoru offered the slightest of smiles with a shrug, refuting that he had been joking, and Umino's laughter died down gradually, until, suddenly, he whipped back around to look at the room at large. "YOU'RE SERIOUS?!

The bespectacled teen scrambled up to his feet and immediately lunged towards one of his books, muttering and mumbling all the while, flipping pages back and forth the moment the bound tome was in his hand, one hand tracing lines on the page as the other pushed his heavy glasses farther up his nose between flipping pages. 

"See?" Mamoru offered, coming to his feet in a smoother fashion and reaching down with both hands to offer to help Usagi up, "Good as new."

"Six!" Umino exclaimed, the only intelligible word of his entire muttering mumbling tirade.

Ami came over late as Umino was waking up still questioning all of them. She directed a question well 2 question to Mamoru, "So..question one...Is he always like this? I ask because I have some skill in helping people. Second question....the 'key blades' that we have...are we the only ones...I mean all of us in this room?" As she waited she added, "Hello Umino...is there anything I can help you with...I read a lot.."

((NPC!))
Umino looked up, though his eyes were more swirls than anything as he processed what he read. In a zombie-like fashion, he asked of Ami, "Are you familiar with the language of the Great Wizard Howl?
OOC:
 


"Sometimes," Mamoru admitting, watching fondly as his friend spazzed out. "So far as I know, yeah; we're it. But then I thought it was just Minako and me yesterday, so if anyone can figure it out, it's Umino."
