Trio of Maidens
(2013-03-14 - 2013-03-27)
A bit of post-Manhattan recovery and healing, the spirits are high and not thanks to drinks.
Tifa Lockhart There's no place like home, isn't there? Back at the bar after some adventures and misadventures along the way, she's been healing up from the beating they got defending the town. The last bandages came off today, so she looks fresh as always. Well, it was mostly to limit the scarring, as there's always magic to heal up wounds.

The barmaid is pushing up bottles on the different shelves, making sure there's enough of each drink placed up for the needs.
Aerith Speaking of recovery...

Aerith descended the staircase, arms stretched above her head, looking as if she'd never fought a battle. Her jeans, jacket, and even the shirt underneath seemed untouched, despite the battle for Traverse that she now figured was a ruse. To what end, she had no idea... but she would spare no time finding out. They were still no closer to that shard, and the riddle the old woman gave them evaded her even now.

Still, no big loss. Traverse was still here, though the bad guys proved they could take it at any time. She'd be ready next time, though.

"Tifa~!" Aerith grinned in the barmaid's direction. "Y'know, I've never really seen this place before... is this another one of your bars?"
Kim Possible Meanwhile, Kim Possible has been taking a lot of time off to work on her homework, and babysit her twin brothers, which has kept her quite busy for awhile. Also, she needs to find time for cheerleading practice, which really takes a chunk of time out. So it's no surprise that she's coming to the bar to relax for a little while. She's glad to see Tifa's working there, since she's one of Kim's first buddies since being here. And then there's Aerith, a new friend of Kim's.

"Hey girls, what's the sitch?" Kim asks with a grin as she walks into the bar casually, taking a seat on one of the stools by the bar. "Anything new and cool?"
Tifa Lockhart Tifa Lockhart smiles and waves to Kim as she enters. She turns around, putting down a box of the bottles she had with her "Hey Aerith, I thought youhad been here before. But yes, its the place I'm sharing with Mercade, his offices are on the second floor. You two look like you healed up after last time too." Which is a good thing too.
Aerith Aerith glanced toward the door as someone entered, and found someone familiar. Flowergirl smiled and turned her attention toward the visitor. "Nothing but sea salt ice cream, and this place... which I've never been in before besides last night." She made her way toward the girl and took a seat next to her. "I don't think we've been properly introduced since the last time we saw each other... and you know how that went." She chuckled. "Aerith Gainsborough. And your name?"
Kim Possible "Kim Possible, nice to meet you Aerith," Kim replies with a big grin. "Always cool to meet new people in this place. I still don't know what this place is supposed to be, but I'm getting used to it." She looks to Tifa. "What do you recommend today?"
Tifa Lockhart Tifa Lockhart hmms "Well you're still underaged, so nothing alcoholic for you. But juices, milkshakes, that I can offer. If you're hungry, I have pork chops with pastas today.
Aerith Well now that she thought about it, Aerith was hungry. She ordered the pork chops with pasta and leaned forward to prop her forearms on the bar. "Yeah, new places are often a bit confusing. Especially when you end up there without knowing how you got there." She glanced at Kim for a bit. "You don't look any older than... what, high-school? But you fought pretty well back there when those guys came and tried to bust up the city."
Kim Possible "Yeah I'm still in high school," Kim replies to Aerith. "But I know how to deal with things like that. I'm a secret agent, believe it or not." She looks to Tifa and says, "I'm in the mood for trying something new. You got any suggestions?"
Tifa Lockhart Tifa Lockhart hmms, as she thinks about that, smiling "Well, I don't know what I could do for you that would be new, really." She turns around, cleaning a bit around "A secret agent? That sounds exciting alright. But I've seen you fight too, you're pretty strong. Not just any kid would do that really."
Aerith Aerith nodded in agreement. "Y'know I almost wonder how you'd do with just a stick..." She chuckled. "I dunno, maybe there are a few things you could teach me. I'm always in the mood to learn new things." She started at her food.
Kim Possible "Well, what was that sea salt thing you told me about?" Kate says to Tifa, before looking to Aerith. "A stick? I don't even need a weapon. I know martial arts so I could easily take out someone without any sort of weapons."
Tifa Lockhart Tifa Lockhart grins "She fights like me, without weapons, but her style is different." She moves over to the ice cream bin, taking out a frozen treat on a stick for Kim "This is Sea Salt Ice Cream, its a brand from Traverse only, as far as I know, we fought to get the recipe back, and I got exclusive rights to sell it." She offers the stick to Kim. "Its a surprising taste.
Aerith Aerith blinked for a moment. "Well sure, but a martial artist is supposed to be able to use any weapon they come across. I mean, it's the capacity to handle yourself in any situation, including disarming someone and using their weapon against them." She shrugged. "But you sure seem confident enough." She took another bite of her meal. "Yeah, Sea Salt Ice Cream is possibly the most surprising flavor you'll ever have, but it's tasty. <3"
Kim Possible Kim narrows an eye at the ice cream and hrms. "Well, I dunno. I suppose anything's worth a try." She takes a deep breath and blows it out, before licking it. A pause, then a grin forms on her face. "Hey, this is totally cool!"
Aerith Aerith grinned. "Said it was, didn't I?" Hah. Jokes. Bad ones, but jokes. "So then, what kind of fighting style is that you're using? Or it is just a mix of a lot of them, like Tifa?" She certainly sounded interested... maybe she did want some pointers after all?
Tifa Lockhart Tifa Lockhart smilse "Its not a mix of them, its the Zangan style, its made to be heavy hitting at base. The acrobatics is just the way I integrated it, since i'm not exactly as heavy as most targets I fought."
Kim Possible "I'm a cheerleader by trade so I have some acrobatic skills all the same." Kim says as she continues to lick her ice cream. "Looks like I've made another friend for real tonight." She adds, grinning at Aerith.
Aerith Aerith shrugged. "Same difference." She put her fork down. "I'm not sure if a demonstration would be fair at least not in here, but... have you ever seen those old kung fu movies of the Shaolin Temple?" She grinned. "I never thought a place like that existed until I saw something in Manhattan. I figured learning from that would improve my self-defense a bit... and so I have moves from that fighting style."
Tifa Lockhart Tifa Lockhart smiles "I didn't either. I know that fighting with your fists is not something new inherently. Its probably the first way humans fought after all, but then weapons made it more complicated, fancy and dangerous. But then techniques were developed to keep up with the weapons, making fists just as dangerous when you know how to strike.
Kim Possible "It's more than just Kung-Fu," Kim says with a grin as she finishes her ice cream. "It's a crazy style, and that's not all of it either. With my awesome gadgets, I can do other cool stuff too." She looks to Tifa and nods. "Yeah, your fists and feet can be useful when you strike where it hurts the most. It's totally uncool for them, but when you gotta defend yourself, it's totally cool!"
Tifa Lockhart Tifa Lockhart nods "I rather not use it against living beings, I can aim for less vital spots when I do, like at the tournament. You have to be serious when you fight because otherwise you're the one that oculd get hurt, but still able to pull your punches where it matters."
Aerith Aerith nodded. "Well it sure sounds like the three of us have something in common." Aerith got back to eating her food. "I just wish I could have stayed around for the rest of that tournament... I had other things to take care of after I got eliminated."
Kim Possible "I was a bit too busy to take part in the tournament," Kim comments. "Well, I'm sure there'll be other ones, otherwise that would totally be uncool." She looks to Tifa and adds, "Sometimes pulling your punches isn't the best thing to do. If I do that, I risk getting captured or something like that. These missions I do are pretty tough."
Tifa Lockhart Tifa Lockhart smirks "The tournament was not for showing off, there was a shard for Manhattan involved. As long as someone trustworthy won it, which was the case here.
Kim Possible "Really? That's cool to know," Kim says before looking at her watch and doing a double-take. "Uh-oh, I have to, like, get home soon and finish my studying." She smiles to her friends. "Great seeing both of you, hopefully we'll see each other again soon." She then gives Tifa a small tip as she adds, "Thanks for the ice cream, it was tasty."
Aerith Aerith nodded and turned back to her food. "Yeah, hopefully we'll see you around town! We sure could use the help rebuilding around here, that's for sure."
Tifa Lockhart Tifa Lockhart smiles, pocketing the money away for later stashing. "Come back soon. We should try a spar one day, compare our moves."
