Fancy us meeting like this~?
She’ll be here soon… Won’t she? A mix of amusement and a hint of anxiety seeming to flood a young brunette with a kind of nervous energy as she paced back and forth around the small room that was now her home, Chloe Crawford looked over the items in her humble abode as she tried to distract herself from that apprehensive excitement about meeting a new person, and yet could not seem to calm herself down all that much. Feeling somewhat like a child who was waiting on a visit from a relative or even Santa Claus, the brown haired beauty knew that she should be being patient and waiting for a knock at the door in a relaxed fashion, but for one reason or another that was not something she felt like she could achieve right now. There was too much electricity in the air right now.
I think so? We’re meeting here, right? The agitation that she felt a little bit overwhelming for her really, she had set about tidying things up a few times in order to distract herself from the wait that she was enduring, but having remade her bed a couple of times and even rearranged the assortment of plushies atop it on a few more occasions than that, all that Chloe could do was alternate between looking at the door and then the message on her phone that dictated her appointment. Yes, it was here. My place. Practically checking it every five minutes as if she could not recall whether the details in her mind were accurate or not, as her waiting time grew longer and longer she felt a sense of paranoia growing in the back of her mind that she had made some sort of mistake, and she should have been rushing out to somewhere right now and soon apologizing for her error. However, that wasn’t the case.
Kanna Kusanagi? Managing to contain herself by sitting on the edge of her bed and pulling up the details of this little get-together that had been sent to her by the school that she had now attended, though her legs remained a little restless Miss Crawford tried to calm herself a little and focus on what lay ahead of her, or more specifically, who did. I can’t wait for her to get here… I wonder what she’s like? This person that was visiting a total stranger and yet something about her name seeming to generate this fever within her, the buzzing brunette couldn’t help but dally a little into imagination and whimsy as she wondered about the person who would be calling upon her soon, and even more so how well they might get along together. Hopefully, it would be like a house on fire, as folk might say…
She had to admit, she felt somewhat intrigued by the faculty's decision to request she help tutor a foreign student in Japanese... Academically speaking, she saw no really fault in their choice, Kanna got consistent grades despite seemingly not paying too much attention in class, evidencing that for all her posture, she had been benefiting from the premium education. And yet anybody with half a brain could frown and scratch their heads as they figured out why would they suggest something so odd, pairing two girls with nothing in common as such. She could obviously figure out they hoped a responsible girl like Chloe might have some positive influence on herself, even if she hadn't the necessary resources to figure out just what was going on inside the school. And yet:
"...Who knows, maybe this will actually be fun...", she mused as she walked through the hallways of the school dorms, scarcely having anything beyond a curt nod towards whatever passerbys she ran into. It had been a while since she came her, and yet not that she felt any real need to, after all, she could count the amount of actual friends she had with the fingers in one hand.
No doubt hoping some responsibility over a foreign student would benefit her, but most of all she knew the school hoped to reel in their antisocial, delinquent hacker into the fold. Kanna knew hanging out with a English student could be quite the unique experience, but then, the girl being easy on the eye certainly didn't hurt her case. She could think of worse things to do than imagine how much devilish fun she might have teasing this seemingly angelic girl, and if it got faculty off her case for a week or two, she couldn't really complain... And so as she stepped closer to her room, the dirty blonde hacker pulled her phone out from her jacket pocket and quickly typed a quick text, blunt and to the point as she always did:
"I'm here.", they'd exchanged a couple of messages, but not much else, and she had to wonder if the girl actually knew what she'd find as she opened the door. Clad in tight, ripped up jeans and a short, fishnet top, the svelte, tattooed hacker flaunted her figure with pride, or at least, without the slighest care in the world.
Some people called her out on one or the other and though she didn't particularly care what the foreign girl might think, she herself felt a measure of curiosity towards what kind of person she might be, cooly knocking on the door and resting her arm on the doorway. And just how put off would the goody two shoes feel when she came face to face with the picture of delinquent nonchalance, complete with blatant disregard for school uniform and lingering scent of tobacco on her clothes...

Fancy us meeting like this~?
“O-Oh!” Squeaking like an excited little mouse as the phone in her hands buzzed and gave a happy little chime to tell her she had received a message, the words ‘I’m Here’ popped up upon the screen of Miss Crawford and made her bounce up onto her feet with excitement when next she was alerted to the situation by a little knock on wood not too far away, feeling her heart racing as she did so. Eager to not keep the woman at her door waiting too long or any kind of time at all, even though the room she was in was none too sizeable and her bed took up quite a noticeable proportion of the floor space the elegant and enthusiastic Englishwoman still felt the need to skip across the six or seven steps that separated her from her new acquaintance, and then bit her lip for a moment as she gripped the handle in order to let this stranger into her modest abode.
“H-Hello!” Words of her native language erupting from her lips with a stumble that spoke more of a sense of excitement than shyness as she turned the doorknob and pulled that firm surface toward her, Chloe wore a bright and enthusiastic smile as she greeted the girl she would be spending her day with, but as she laid her eyes upon the woman on the other side of the threshold she couldn’t help but feel just a little bit surprised by what she saw.
This is her? Perhaps finding herself a little flustered to discover that her tutor did not look in any way how she might have expected her to, the newness of her situation meant that she had no idea who this person with the intriguing name was before this very moment, and as she saw her now face to face for a proper greeting the young woman couldn’t have felt like she was standing in front of a bigger contrast to herself if she had tried. Not the type who tended to judge others based on their appearance but the difference between the two hard not to notice, as she stood there in a blouse and skirt Miss Crawford couldn’t help but widen her eyes a little at the girl wearing torn jeans, a loose jacket and a mesh shirt that left very little to the imagination, feeling just a little bit intimidated by what she saw and also just a little bit thrilled as well.
“You must be Kanna… San?” A second of blinking confusion following before Chloe pulled her eyes off the ‘display’ in front of her with a slight blush, as she greeted this strange girl the bashful brunette found herself forgetting those well-regarded honorifics that Japan was so famous for and corrected herself quickly, showing all too eagerly how flustered she was by this bad girl in her doorway but speedily trying to amend that. “C-Come in, come in!” Slipping out of the way of this strange soul who she had not expected a moment later and beckoning the girl in, while she had suffered a little bit of a culture shock by what she witnessed before her the green eyed girl did not wish to be a bad host, and also was slightly intrigued by this appearance as well. Expecting someone sensible and studious looking, this was quite the contrast really in regard to said prediction, but also something that seemed interesting and just a little bit exciting as well…
"'Sup...?", nodding and returning the greeting in English almost on reflex, the lack of any audible accent made it all too clear she'd have no trouble with the language either, or, at least it might had she chosen a more formal greeting.
Kanna all but snickered as she saw that look on her face, that wide eyed gaze of utter shock... There was something inherently satisfying about catching such an obvious good girl off guard, knowing she'd probably expert a bookish sort to knock on her door. And yet her brow rose on reflex as finally stared the new girl in the eyes... Yes, she'd certainly seen her pictures right after the faculty dropped her name, but seeing her in person. Chloe was quite the beauty, and yet there was something unassuming about her graceful visage. Something disarming about it that Kanna couldn't quite place as she shook her head, raising a hand in visible refusal:
"Don't need the '-san'. Call me Kanna.", blunt and outspoken, the tattooed teen voiced this objection one too many times to even think twice about it, but as she remember what she'd come here to do, Kanna bit her lip softly and rubbed her temple, pushing up her cap, "Shit... That ain't a lesson or anything by the way, so don't write that down. Most folks get reeeal uppity without it."
Letting herself in without a care in the world, the punkish blonde briskly pulled off her cozy black jacket and tossed it over the nearest chair, fully baring the bold artwork on her back as sat down on the side of the bed. Indeed her wardrobe left little to imagination, hardly concealing the pale sports bra underneath the black mesh top, and Kanna certainly liked it that way - far preferring the freedom of light clothing over cumbersome outfits - which only added to the contrast between tutor and pupil. With a slouched, lazy posture, those vivid jade eyes took a quick, scarcely interested glance in her surroundings: Neat and cozy dorm room, adorned with a visible collection of stuffed animals, all neatly arranged. Grace, innocence, attention to detail... Just about everything she expected, really... And yet as she looked at the English woman herself, clad in a flowing casual dress, Kanna couldn't help but let her gaze slowly gleam down that deceptive figure and admire the gorgeous new student with a hint of interest. It actually took her a moment to remember just why she'd come over as she spoke up:
"So, let's hear it...", she'd speak up, taking off the cap as her brow rose, seeking those radiant emeralds she had for eyes, "How much Japanese have ya actually learned yet?"

Fancy us meeting like this~?
She doesn’t look much like a tutor, does she? The mind of Miss Crawford racing as she ushered her guest into her humble abode, the brunette couldn’t help but scan the frame of her fellow femme as she did so and felt her mind making certain assumptions about this stranger because of that, ones that she was not really that disposed toward listening to. No no, don’t be like that Chloe, she’ll probably surprise you? Mentally rebuking herself as she felt some form of predisposed thoughts seeming to guide her opinion a manner that she didn’t wish to agree with, the brunette hung from the door as she watched the blonde slip into her room, feeling herself bristled by curiosity at what she saw.
“O-Oh, I see?” The emerald eyes that she possessed looking over the unexpected appearance of her tutor, as she found herself being corrected on the little greeting in a casual fashion, Chloe found herself a bit confused but ultimately acquiesced to the request of her fellow femme. “Well, make yourself comfortable, OK?” Certainly not the sort who wished to seem all formal and stuffy in the face of someone who seemed to stand in almost literal opposition to that going off her looks, as she shut the door behind Kanna the eager Englishwoman nodded as she noticed her guest taking her coat off and scooped it up quickly to hang on a hook on the back of her door, like some kind of good little housewife.
“Oh, some conversation and how to ask for the essentials, I suppose? A little reading...” Immediately following up by scurrying across the room to where Kanna had positioned herself and slipping onto the nearest seat to her as their conversation continued, Miss Crawford tilted her head a little and winced just a bit as she confessed the fact that she hadn’t come terribly far in her Japanese studies really. Not much more than the basics. Definitely enthusiastic about making her amends for this of course and that showing in the brightness with which she responded, while the young brown haired beauty couldn’t help but feel the urge to let her eyes drift to take in the exotic image that the woman presented before her, she tried not to allow herself the option to do that.
“I’m afraid you might have your work cut out today, teach!” Instead rocking her knees a little and smiling into a set of green irises that were not too far removed from the colour of her own as she tented her hands together, all that the green girl could do was fidget as she waited to see what her teacher might make of what she had been told, and hope that the two would get along despite the obvious differences that one could see in their appearances. Certainly left feeling a little bit out of her depth of course because of that stark contrast but ultimately expecting they would find some form of common ground, if anything the uniqueness of the woman opposite her left Chloe feeling more curious about her than anything, and wondering just what sort of girl was ‘beneath’ the startling image she saw before her…
Yes, she most certainly looked like the very figure of prim and proper elegance, standing by the door as she welcomed Kanna into her dorm room. She did expect this on some level considering what she'd read about her but even then Chloe still managed to surprise her, with an air about her that looked both warm and dignified. One might argue she got that from her English heritage, and yet she seemed far more approachable than she might have imagined. Kanna, by contrast, looked about as laid back as she could be short of stripping down into cozy housewear, casually tossing the cap somewhere Chloe's bed, eyes widening ever so softly as she ruffled her blonde hair, actually a little bit impressed that the girl got this far with so little Japanese under her belt:
"Shit... How the hell did you get around all the forms they had you fill out...?", asked the blonde, rubbing behind her neck, under her shaggy, dirty blonde hair. She must have had someone help her out along but the way, but she must have still hit quite a number of walls along the way. She'd be lying if she said it didn't pique her interest in any way, after all she couldn't help but shoot the girl a hint of curiosity every so often.
Alas, it appeared Chloe had only slightly been underselling her skills which was clearly enough to get by... Embarking on an adventure like this can't be easy for most people, which only meant she was anything but, no doubt whoever picked her must have had no doubt that she'd get up to speed fast enough in time for classes, which only lent further credibility to her whole theory: Faculty just wanted the good girl to keep an eye on her. Leaning back softly, the blonde's hands slid further back over the bed as her eyes peeled away from those vibrant jades, as if looking for something:
"Well, you made it this far, so... Seems to me you just need vocabulary, and you can get that just from talking... And reading practice too, I guess...?", as if to make sure of that, Kanna quickly looked left, then right, stretching herself out towards the nightstand table until the fishnet top climbed a few inches higher alongside her own torso, baring a bit more of the Japanese writing tattooed on her ribcage. A particularly painful spot to get inked in, but no doubt one of Kanna's favorite tattoos, judging by just how close they were to her heart, "So... What does it say here...?"
Though she had a reading exercise in mind, the blonde sought a far simpler exercise than reading a half covered tattoo: Raising back upright, Kanna tugged her top back down comfortably below her bra, then held the UA flier in front of her. It would be a decent enough exercise, with all four Japanese alphabets clearly displayed in bold advertisement fonts. Honestly, she was mostly just curious to see if the girl had picked up any Kana yet. The school's flier wasn't particularly interesting, but the cheesy publicity lines were legible enough:
"Don't bother with the Kanji for now, that's a lesson for a different day.", added the blonde, brow raising as she looked between Chloe and their first bit of exercise.

At least she feels relaxed around me? It almost seeming like this wild looking young woman was trying to mark her territory so speak with the way she behaved, as the cap that Kanna had been wearing was flung across the room to land on her bed Miss Crawford felt half an urge to dip over and hang that up too, but resisted the impulse. That’s good, right? Not wanting to seem overly stuffy and fastidious in the face of this casual girl, she glanced toward the item and then back to the beauty now that she was comfortably disrobed and couldn’t help but let her eyes wander a little as she took in her tutor in full with the bright light of her room to help her.
“A-Ah, well since it was a school sponsored exchange program I think they anticipated this problem?” The green gaze that she possessed drifting from that messy crown of gold to the stylized mark on the girl’s midriff in a fashion that spoke of her curiosity and desire to get to know this stranger a little better, after admiring the latter and actually finding it just a little bit cute Chloe looked toward her companion and smiled at her comment, tilting her head slightly as she responded. “And luckily had someone on hand to help me with that?” Really a lot of the burden of moving to a distant land and dealing the with language aided by her situation, it seemed that the Valiant Institute and UA Academy had done a good job of making the transition as peaceful and easy as possible, which was especially evidenced by their current situation.
“O-Oh, um…”Finding herself delighted to hear she would be given a language coach and chaperone in this new location to help her settle in, though Miss Crawford wasn’t sure what to make of her unusual appearance or even stranger starting methods to teach her as she tried to use her body art as some kind of learning aid, she had to assume that this girl was a good egg at heart. After all, why would she have been assigned to her if she was going to steer her wrong?
“Ah, yes… Let’s see…” Perhaps feeling some relief when her teacher amended their task to something that felt a little bit less like she was leering at her guest, while her tutor did indeed possess the kind of skin she could admire for quite a while Chloe was happier setting on with their task in a slightly more formal fashion, and even if the challenge ahead of her was a little daunting she set to it with gusto. “Hmmmm… T-This is Tsu, right? And Na? I think I’m better at speaking this than reading it but… I can recognise some of the things here, I think?” Eyeing up a few of the katakana that she saw before her and then running her fingertip over them like a child reading a book, though the brunette knew that her skills weren’t anything impressive she attempted the task as best she could, wondering what her teacher might make of her modest ability and how she might seek to improve it…
"They really did huh...? I mean, they hit me up as soon as you arrived, so...", shrugged the blonde, chuckling as her smile widened ever so slightly as eyed her graceful with a hint of interest, secretly admiring the way she pulled off such a long, flowing dress. Yes there certainly something about Chloe that helped Kanna feel at ease, without being threatened by the feeling, "...Seems we've been fated tutor and pupil for longer than that still~"
And clearly would be for a good time still as she heard the girl's attempt at reading from the sheet of paper. Well, she at least got two Kana down. Perhaps wrong in her assumption that such a seemingly studious girl would have some required some level of skill to make it this far, she rubbed her temple and crooked her brow as her eyes nonetheless followed Chloe a bit more intently than she'd admit, finding herself quite taken by that innocent visage as she ran her finger over the sheet of paper:
"You weren't weren't kidding huh...?", sighing softly, Kanna reached out for one of the stuffed animals within reach, once again admiring the girl's collection as she ran her fingertips over the soft, velvety fuzz, "And yet you remembered to pack all these stuffed animals? Guess that's one way to come prepared~", snarky as ever, Kanna hardly missed the chance to tease her new classmate, snickering softly as she nonetheless remained undaunted by the challenge of teaching her from scratch, speaking almost reassuringly, "But that's alright, I gotchu now. Before you know it you'll be dropping those honorifics without even realizing~..."
Kanna didn't start particularly hard, teaching her only the first few Kana and some basic words she could to help her vocabulary. Still learning such a drastically different language from the ground up was no easy feat and Chloe certainly had some stamina... Maybe she should have expected the goody two shoes to be an honest to god good student, but one some level she wondered if the girl wouldn't feel daunted by the challenge of getting up to speed on such a difficult language, by such an unorthodox teacher. Maybe on some level, she didn't really want to get outpaced by the new girl so quickly, or maybe she was slowly starting to appreciate the graceful foreign girl. She'd have stood up and moved closer to the window for a smoke - lest Chloe pose too vehement an objection to the act - but after roughly two hours of teaching, they'd reached a satisfying first lesson:
"Well... I say that's enough for one day dontcha think?", asked the blonde, blowing a puff of smoke out the window, before tossing away the stub as her stomach growled, a low, audible rumble hinting at the main reason behind the end of their class. Though Kanna's main reason laid solely in her stomach, she did genuinely know better than to try and teach Chloe more than she could assimilate in one sitting, chuckling cheekily as she smirked, "If I drill you any more than this it'll start coming out the other end at this rate."

“Hmmmmm… I think…” Humming as she eased away from her latest little task, after looking at the worksheet in front of her Chloe let out a soft sigh of relief as she saw no obvious mistakes in front of her, and then turned her green gaze toward the blonde beauty next to her. “I-I think this is right…?” Not even knowing how long had passed since they got down to it and kind of quiet during their little set of exercises, as she lifted the sheet up and presented it to her tutor for approval, the eager Englishwoman couldn’t help but feel a hint of restlessness, and a desire to make both of their days a little more interesting because of it.
“Seems like it’s getting pretty late…” Noting how tight her shoulders felt as she rested back in her chair and pulling her arms across herself because of this sensation, after eyeing her new friend for a moment Miss Crawford looked around her room and could see how the light had changed in it by this point. “Oh gosh, is that the time already?” The brightness of the morning seeming to have dulled a little around her and the green eyed girl somewhat astounded when she saw the time on the clock next to her bed, the eyes of the emerald enchantress grew wide as she realized just how long they had been at it, and almost immediately the girl recognised their need to take a break as well.
“Goodness, and we haven’t had lunch yet either, have we?” Certainly enjoying the chance to polish up the rough skills she had in Japanese but at the same time feeling as if she had hardly a chance to really make much progress in a personal sense with the girl next to her, as Chloe noted the time that had passed since they started she couldn’t help but feel a little hungry as well, and naturally those two factors seemed to combine in her mind to create one great plan together. Really, it was rather swimming how well these things came together sometimes.
“Heheheheh, maybe we should grab something to eat?” The idea of going out somewhere seeming like it would be such a wonderful opportunity for them to bond, the british beauty couldn’t help but giggle a little with glee as she realized they had a great chance to get to know one another better, and leapt at the chance to do so. “My treat?” Finding that the prospect of the two of them bonding was even more exciting than she might have guessed, even though Kanna seemed so different to her Miss Crawford couldn’t help but feel intrigued by this exotic soul she had welcomed into her room, and was happy to offer a little extra incentive to coax the woman into going along with her suggestion as well…
"Yeah, you got it...", nodded Kanna, looking over the last little exercise, only scribbling one particular Kana to help her calligraphy along, but at this point Chloe already had something to feel proud for, judging from the way Kanna nodded approvingly, "At this rate, doesn't look like ya gonna need a tutor for too long."
She was surprisingly talented at it despite the limits she showed at first... That's a grade A student for you, even if she came comparatively unprepared, she undoubtedly expected to get up to speed swiftly enough:
"Tell me about it...", sighed the blonde, snickering as she walked past Chloe and picked her jacket back up from the hanger, "I'm basically just running off body fat at this point, and ain't like I got much of that either."
Yet the next few words were met with visible hesitation. Kanna naturally refused any gifts or offers as a matter of principle, a symptom of her utter lack of trust for just about anyone. Even with her closest friends, she took quite a remarkable amount of time to reach that level of trust, and yet:
"Your treat huh...?", spoke the blonde, brow furrowing, humming as she crossed her arms and stroked her chin... She was tempted, very much so, and not even by the empty rumbling in her stomach calling for food. She actually rather enjoyed spending this bit of time with her new foreign classmate, even if she wasn't nowhere near the point when she'd admit it, she ultimately shrugged and uncrossed her arms, "Well, I suppose it's fine, I mean, I am giving you lessons for free."
Yet even then a hint of that reluctance peered through as the blonde couldn't help but scratch her cheek and glance away for the briefest moment:
"Besides, we wouldn't want you getting lost in translation now, would we~?", she added, a cheeky smirk and playful tone poorly concealing a smidge of her true feelings. Chloe was utterly refreshing to be around, even an aloof, solitary soul like Kanna couldn't quite keep her at arms length as she would most people... Only a single look into those glimmering eyes of green caught her attention every single time, until the hacker hastily grabbed her cap and slipped it on, tucking those shaggy blonde bangs away from her eyes, holding Chloe's gaze as she nodded towards the door, "C'mon now, don't keep me waiting will ya? I know a good place around here~"
Standing over by the door, looking over her shoulder, the intrigued blonde could only follow the angelic Englishwoman with a hint of interest on her face, merely waiting for the girl to get her bearings before stepping out into the dorm hallways and back out into the biting chill of fall.

“Aw, well thanks, but…” The heart of our heroine skipping a little beat there as she was offered a little compliment on her ability by the girl next to her, Chloe beamed at the words of the blonde happily for a moment, before her expression softened at the realization of compliment. It almost disappointing her that she would be parted from the person next to her so soon, though the brown haired beauty was happy to know she might have impressed her new friend, the implication that her expertise made their meetings unnecessary felt just a little bit bittersweet to her.
“Perhaps that makes me think I should act a bit dumber, so we can spend more time together?” Pausing for a moment as she processed the news that her tutor didn’t seem to think they would have much reason to spend time like this soon, the brunette hummed and then shifted her smile to something a little more curling and catlike at the information, even going as far as to wink as she concealed a little of her desire to befriend her guest behind the veil of a playful little joke. The short time they had spent together seeming like it had been so much fun despite the subject matter, maybe it was because Kanna seemed so different to her but Miss Crawford couldn’t help but feel a little intrigued by this strangely dressed soul, and feel quite the passion to find out a little more about her.
“Heheheheh, you are? Goodness~” Giggling as she cleared away the pens she had been using for her work and then gasping at the rather vivid description she was given by the vixen nearby, as her companion confessed to quite the bout of hunger the English enchantress felt quite the powerful need to take care of that problem, and immediately blurted out a happy line because of it. “We better get something good inside you then, eh? Give you your money’s worth for the time~?” The sort of girl who could say such things with a sense of innocence and purity that would bely the potential for innuendo in the way that she spoke, Chloe smiled as she finished putting her stationary away and even went so far as to reach for the hand of her tutor as she gave away her eager reply, attempting to squeeze it in a sign of encouragement and support that was rather natural to her really.
“Heheheheh, yes, yes…” Smiling even at the sense of urgency she was shown by the girl with whom she seemed to share an emerald eyed inclination, as Kanna called her to hurry the fair femme giggled and scooped up a nice pink cardigan and her purse as well before following after her new friend, not finding even an ounce of irritation at the impatience that was shown toward her. On the whole a rather peaceable and understanding girl, if anything she found the haste of her companion cute, and it also only heightened her curiosity about their destination as well…
“Ooooohhh, what sort of place is it~?” Feeling a sense of excitement like no other at the prospect of hitting the street so to speak with the girl next to her, Miss Crawford could only smile as she was told that her teenage tutor knew a good place that they could visit, her mind filled with wonder at the opportunity. The food that was promised certainly rather an enticing prospect but not quite managing to compare to the company, with any luck a nice social venue like an eatery or something would be just the chance that the brunette needed to bond a little better with the girl she followed, or at least, that was what she hoped for this little ‘study break’…
"I mean..." , almost surprised by her choice of words, Kanna's brow rose as she wondered what interest did such an angelic beauty from a foreign land might have in her. Perhaps her English upbringing gave her a taste for Kanna's punkish look...? It certainly made the blond think, though she hardly disliked it, shrugging and scratching her cheek as she looked at her, "We gonna be classmates and all so, you'll be seeing a lot of me, no doubt."
Kanna moved on ahead as she so often did, all but guiding her new classmate to a bountiful meal. She'd no doubt the girl might be able to get around, and yet since she herself was a Japanese girl who lived in the neighborhood, it seemed only right to show her the way. She seemed almost absorbed in the way ahead and the meal to come, until a soft, soothing warmth against her rough, chilly hand drew a gasp from her pale pink lips:
"Hey now... Why ya holding my hand all of a sudden?" , she inquired, brow raising as she felt an unexplainable heat in her cheeks, and a surprising lack of the ordinary desire to peel away. Kanna couldn't help but tense ever so slightly, and yet she made no motion to peel away, especially not without a cheeky reply to that very graphic choice of words, "Heh... Something good huh...? With how how hungry I'm feeling, well... It better be damned good~"
She had her doubts that the innocent girl actually knew what she was talking about, and yet she couldn't help but nibble her bottom lip ever so slightly, letting her intrigued gaze wash over the girl's graceful visage, no doubt wondering if she might not actually be hiding a wilder side underneath~... It was quite the delightful image, enough to keep a faint smirk on her lips as they made their way across the halls, and out of the dorm rooms. The cold air outside got naught but a slight shiver from the rough and tough blonde, soon followed by a chuckle as Chloe inquired as to where they'd be eating:
"Ain't nothing fancy about it or anything..." , replied Kanna, brow crooking as she rubbed behind her neck, tipping up her cap ever so slightly as she pointed at a telltale "M" sign up in the distance, "It's just McDolan's."
You have to give it to Americans and their fast food franchises, no matter how out of place you might feel at any given moment, having someplace familiar to grab a meal could feel quite refreshing. Kanna couldn't help but look towards Chloe as she spoke, all but grinning as she imagined how, for the classy and graceful girl, stuffing her face with burgers might be the furthest from her idea of a proper meal:
"What... Don't tell me ya wanted to grab Sushi or something~...", teased the blonde, nudging her new classmate, half wondering just where she expected the gruff and punkish hacker to take her for dinner.

“Oh goodness, how exciting~” Smiling at the suggestion that her blonde buddy had made in regard to their venue of consumption, though many people might have sounded rather sarcastic if they displayed any high level of eagerness or enthusiasm for grabbing a bite at McDolan’s, one was assured that Miss Crawford was quite genuine in this as she closed her door and wrapped herself up properly in her cardigan.
“They have those over here, as well?” Only having lived in this new land for a matter of days and perhaps a hint of intimidation with her surroundings leading to her pursuing her meals in the UA Cafeteria, not only was she giddy at the chance to explore this new land with a friend at her side but also the girl found that the proposed food was actually something of a rarity for her. Raised with one of the fancier spoons in her mouth and used to great home cooking or upscale restaurants, the idea of eating at that multinational fast food joint felt almost like a taboo for her, like she was ‘slumming it on the streets’ and that feeling made it feel rather fascinating and thrilling as well.
“Well, I’m sure I’d love to try some authentic Japanese cuisine while I’m over here, but…” Finally finishing getting herself a bit better dressed for the crispness of the late autumn air and pulling her hands back through her hair once she was done so, as she found herself being nudged in both a literal and perhaps a more figurative sense by the vixen nearby Chloe took her question in quite the genuine fashion, and responded to it with similar sincerity. “Heeheehee, what you suggest seems like it would be more fulfilling~” Honest to a fault at times and certainly the sort of girl who would like the chance to let her partner know her a little better as well, the young brunette felt no need to conceal her feelings on the matter and spoke rather frankly even if she added a playful touch to the end of her reply, before smiling and looking her partner up and down with a slight sense of hopefulness in her eyes.
“So, is this the kind of food you like~?” The image that Kanna had so exotic to her, despite how ‘forward’ that her fellow femme looked visually Miss Crawford already felt as if the personality of her partner was in direct opposition to how she appeared. “I must confess, I haven’t eaten it often but found it surprisingly tasty for what you pay?” The blonde seeming far more taciturn and mysterious than she was, she couldn’t help but question her on any and every thing that seemed to pop up between them, craving a feeling of common ground or at least some kind of indicator as to what her tutor was like beneath her striking choices in clothing and somewhat gruff manner, since the optimism of the green eyed girl seemed to whisper there was something special waiting for her if she took the time to observe it…
Yes, she most certainly sounded sarcastic about it, not that Kanna could ever really judge her if she were, though her brow crooked with a hint of curiosity. She'd only met this girl for a few hours now, but none of that ever suggested she actually had it in her to speak as snarkily as the blonde might. Instead, all the emotionally clueless hacker could sense boiled down to a hint of innocent curiosity, tinged with graceful politeness.
"I mean yeah, of course...?", shrugged the blonde, shrugging as she zipped up her jacket a tad bit higher still, only up to the lower edge of her mesh top, looking at Chloe almost surprised by her question as she brushed her long blonde hair back and out of her jacket, "Good old McD got its foot just about everywhere on Earth really..."
Chloe certainly didn't look like the kind of girl who'd have left her country too many times, and even in England she could probably count the amount of times she'd set foot in a McDolan's joint. All in all, this must be quite the new experience for her in many ways, and for once, Kanna felt a nudging motivation to make it a good one as she showed her around the country she'd living in for a good long while. And a warm, tasty meal on a familiar place seemed just like the place to start. More importantly, Kanna herself wanted to eat there, which in the end mattered more than any samaritanism. Perhaps sometime later she'd show her around some authentic cuisine:
"Pretty much... Cheap, tasty and about as fast as I can get. Sounds like the dream huh~...?", nodded the blonde, her lips widening into a knowing grin as she motioned to the place in front of her. Despite the bitter, almost wintery breeze blowing all around them, there thought of having a nice, satifying meal brought an undeniable warmth to the hungry hacker's body, "Yup, and that's exactly what you pay for. It ain't need to be fancy or anything when you just want nice, big mouthful of something delicious.", perhaps a bit too honest about her deep, seldom spoken love of cheap, trashy fast food, Kanna obviosuly showed not the slightest hint of shame in this. Quite the opposite, she had nothing but pride for her preferences, delighting in how she could easily eat dinner in front of her computer without wasting time cooking. Absent any stern objection on the classy girl's part, Kanna merely rose her brow as she indulged her curiosity, "So... Did you think about what you're gonna have?"
Pushing up the door, Kanna took a deep, fulfilling breath the moment she sat foot inside the restaurant, delighting in that scent of sizzling meat that left her feeling all the hungrier, licking her lips ever so softly as she looked back at Chloe, waiting for the girl to walk up to her. After making her way inside, she was at least nice enough to lazily leave her chilly hand on the glassy door as she looked back at Chloe, finding almost ironic sense of amusement in watching the ravishing English princess setting foot inside an American fast food franchise in Japan...

Fancy us meeting like this~?
“Heeheehee, I wonder if there’s one in Antarctica?” Something about what her new friend said seeming to stir a combination of her sense whimsy, while Chloe already expected that she could guess the answer to the question she asked and was largely being her usual silly self with it, the green eyes of the girl shone as she imagined those golden arches in the middle of a brilliant white field of snow and grew even brighter when she pictured the customers for such a venue. “Imagine, little penguins eating fries~” Chuckling to herself and her verdant gaze turning even softer and more distant as she pictured cute waddling birds nibbling on those potato sticks that such places sold, even though the image was rather simple the schoolgirl couldn’t help but feel rather charmed by it, and almost tempted to ask if there was a zoo around to see if she might try the idea out for herself.
“It isn’t bad, is it?” Smiling as she pulled her hands together behind herself and moving into a slightly bouncier kind of step as she followed after Kanna, though the blonde seemed to have a habit of putting things in a manner that seemed to be a little rougher than she did, Miss Crawford couldn’t help but agree with the assessment that her new friend made and rather wholeheartedly at that. “I used to love it when we went on school trips and things cause I could eat food like that, without mother and father knowing?” A trip to McD’s seeming to have an odd and exciting sense of sentiment about it, the biggest part of why the brunette had not been exposed to this form of cuisine so frequently was because she knew that her parents didn’t exactly approve of fast and junky foods, and that only seemed to heighten the thrill and enjoyment she got from eating it like she was breaking some kind of taboo.
“Oh, no, I’m not sure actually?” Certainly thrilled by the idea of taking a trip to the speedy street of ‘junktown’ for her lunch with the young woman next to her, perhaps more of her inexperience with the venue to which they were aimed showed as she found herself struggling somewhat to think of exactly what she wanted to eat there, and would likely need the assistance of a menu or perhaps a wiser soul than her in that regard. “What are you going to have, Kanna~?” Finding herself rather curious as to what someone like the emerald eyed teen next to her might enjoy because of that lacking expertise, Chloe tilted her head as she bounced along next to Miss Kusanagi and smiled, verbally probing that greater sense of familiarity that her fellow femme seemed to flaunt and also hoping that she might get to know her that bit better by finding out what the girl liked to eat as well…
