Not as chilly as I was expecting? The pink lips of an emerald eyed enchantress pursed slightly as she pulled air into her lungs, despite how breathless she was feeling at this particular moment Chloe Crawford found that she actually felt rather good, all things considered. Maybe Japan isn’t as severe in autumn as England? Out for a bit of a run in the park bundled up in the warmest wear she had for exercise and even sporting the cutest little headband in case her ears got cold, she was rather pleasantly surprised to discover her body feeling just a little bit hot as she chugged along in a slightly gaspy fashion, finding herself far more focused on that feeling of toastiness and the sights around her than the steady soreness that building up in her lungs or the hard time she was having catching her breath up fully.
I think I made the right choice going for a run in the park, that’s for sure? The latter really catching her eye, while she knew that her school was reasonably well endowed in regard to facilities dedicated toward exercise, Miss Crawford had guessed that despite them she would have had a more enjoyable time outside and was glad to see that her expectation was well met. Those running machines in the gym make my legs hurt more, after all, but moreover… There something more lively about such an open and involved environment, having stepped into a public park that she had never visited before the green eyed girl felt a swath of curiosity about this new locale, and no shortage of excitement either.
The air feels so fresh~ Folks around her strolling past as they went about their business and their leisure as well and something about the atmosphere feeling more invigorating than any gym she had been too, the mild crispness of the air on her hot face felt more refreshing than stifling and the people she passed also seemed to have an effect upon her, even if she didn’t know them. Almost feeling a little bit more energy saturated her form as she jogged past strangers and offered them a smile and even the occasional good morning, though she was pushing herself hard enough that she could feel it in her body at the same time Chloe also found that her endeavour felt easier than she had expected, which was another pleasant surprise.
And the scenery is so lovely! Such a vibrant locale more than enough to pull her mind away from any aches or pains that cropped up as she continued to chug along just a little bit faster than one might be able to walk, the mix of golds, oranges and browns around the young brunette were mesmerizing, so much so that the girl knew that even if she ran out of zeal for running she would be unlikely to leave the park any time soon. This natural beauty that the season of falling leaves almost feeling just a little bit romantic to her, Miss Crawford felt she would be remiss if she left before she had the chance to enjoy this humble location to its fullest, and certainly aimed to keep herself ‘pumping’ as long as she could. Not endowed with any terribly high level of speed or stamina but her spirits never higher, if one was giving out medals for vim and vigour right now then she would certainly earn one, but maybe she wouldn’t be the only one…?

Kirk took in a deep breath, letting the cold air go to every corner of his lungs. His jacket was outright bulging, before he proceeded to blow it out at full force... One part of his warm-up. Making sure his lungs were open for all the air that was soon coming his way. That and the feeling of the cold air just tickled even the last bit of tiredness out of him. Quick couple of squats, a bit of a windmill with both of his arms, and couple of stretches for his legs from side to side... Kirk could feel the blood in his body flowing better already. And then, he gave one last stretch to his arms, pressing both of them against his chest one at a time... And then, He gave himself a figurative countdown... 3, 2, 1... "GO!"
At this point, it was no secret Kirk loved jogging and running. Almost everything that got him moving continuously had him ecstatic, and yet relaxed at the same time. The usual bluster of his voice and all the energy getting used for just that feeling. He didn't need to think at all, because his body was so used to that motion. And the momentum had only been growing, as his time in the U.A was showing more and more. He just always felt like he could be faster. His class included a whole lot of speedsters. A lot of people to compare himself to, and a lot of people to strive towards. Sometimes, he got a little bit overt with the comparisons, especially back in the day... But these days, He was almost appreciating it a little bit more for the challenge of it.
But running alone, was still comparably therapeutic to it all. His mind just sticking to trying to beat his own records, without involving anybody else into it, pushing away all the distracting thoughts that could have made it any sort of problematic. Just like a woolen cap on his head against the cold. And for some reason, Kirk really felt the need to have that time to himself right now.
Naturally, his usual jogging trip ended up going through the park. There was just something that made it a bit more interesting running vise than the usual streets. Just the fact that it was not flat. Made him pay a little bit more attention to where he stepped! But, there was also another reason: People didn't look at you funny, if you just stopped all of a sudden to do more stretches! Because everybody else was also doing it! Sometimes Kirk was still surprised that some people at the hero school were so slim!
"RiiiiiiGHTO!" Kirk pressed his foot down, sliding a bit like towards a base in a baseball game. And just like in one, he proceeded to stand straight, check the clock around his arm, and proceeded to pump his arm a bit in pride. "HECK yeah! That's 5 minutes less! Now then..." He proceeded to bend, and try to touch his toes. He was doing way better at that now, than back when doing Yoga with Mari... "Can't forget the back! Can't have it bending badly!" After that, he proceeded to continue squatting while scratching his jaw. "What else, what else... Can't do back push-ups, or else I'll dirty the jacket... Maybe regular push-ups!" He fell forward onto his hands... only to remember he was wearing gloves... "Aaw, man!" One problem of things getting colder. It got harder to do things without proper gear. But hey, if one thing was clear, Kirk was still the big bundle of energy he had always been, and bit of a cold spell could never change that!

Goodness me! Not the sort who tended to put a set of headphones or buds in her ears as she ran because she seemed to enjoy the peace and gentle sounds of nature more than music for the most part, as she chugged along at her own pace admiring the scenery and trying not to feel overwhelmed by the aching in her legs or shortness of her breath Miss Crawford couldn’t help but jolt as a loud voice intruded into her ears without any kind of means to prevent it other than the coverings on her ears designed more for retaining warmth than denying sound. Mostly in something of a trance up to that point by a combination of her interest in her environment, as she was brought back to reality the brunette couldn’t help jolt slightly and turn her head to see what the source of the disturbance was, slowing down as she did so.
He looks rather spirited, doesn’t he? Finding that her heart was thumping even harder than it had before because of how startling the sound of the stranger was, as Chloe turned her head it didn’t take long for her to realize just who might have exploded with noise as the vocal encouragement of a stranger continued, and despite the boisterousness that she saw the teen couldn’t help but feel a little intrigued by what she saw. Eying whatever this lively lad was up to for a few seconds of curiosity and finding whatever he was up to rather endearing, though the emerald eyed enchantress did not know in that moment she was looking toward a fellow student of UA high she couldn’t help but offer a smile in his direction, and then quickly after a little nod as well.
“Nice weather we’re having~?” Perhaps the Brit in the brunette never more evident as she resumed her jogging but offered a little greeting to this unknown but energetic figure, though Miss Crawford wasn’t even sure that she had caught the attention of such an exuberant individual she still felt it proper and polite to do so, and because of this did. Not really all that bothered if he didn’t hear or see her but still it feeling friendly and ‘neighbourly’ to at least do so on the off chance, once she had done so our lady lead continued on her path at her slow and steady pace as she resumed her jog in earnest, amused by what had just happened and also wondering just a little bit who this person was as well…

Kirk was admittedly the sort of guy who could easily sink into whatever he was doing, not paying much attention to what was happening around him. Only exception were specifically team activities, where his team members were involved. In that regard, Kirk could completely ignore all the absolutely confuddled gazes of people around him, as he did his own activity. Eventually he had just given up on trying to do this and leaving his gloves clean, and now he was just doing regular push-ups. "10! 11! 12!" After all, balanced training was as important as a good training on one part of the body!
However, soon enough, he could hear a sentence coming in his direction. He gave a couple of looks around, still counting the push-ups in his head, before locking his eyes on who he assumed had called out towards him: A girl who was wearing this purple head band, and overall very sporty clothes! And Kirks brain naturally made a connection! "Hey, dudette!" He lifted his other arm up, as he leaned into the other still, doing a couple of one handed push-ups. His freed hand however commenced waving towards her excitedly! Probably the stand out thing about the sentence, was the fact how the dude part was in blunt english. Kirk had just never really gotten into the whole '-san', '-kun' and 'Aniki' thing. So, he had pretty much gone with what he was used to!
In the end, he lowered his waving hand down, and proceeded to outright push himself back up. Kirk then took the liberty, to jog on over to the person greeting him, talking whilst doing so like he already knew her. "Good weather indeed! Refreshing, keeps you cool, and it ain't raining! makes for the perfect light workout session! Maybe even a medium one, you know!" Guess that was one good part about working out in autumn and winter. There was a lot less sweating and risk of overheating! Although, there was the whole 'putting too much clothes on' thing still... Balancing stuff was kind of hard.
"I suppose you're here for the same reason, right?!" He looked the girl in her bright green eyes with big ol excited eyes of his own. "Gotta say, you are prepared PERFECTLY! Though I hope that opening between your foot and leg won't make you too cold!" A nitpick, but hey! It was important. "How much have you already ran today? Or did you just stop to have a break to do something else as well? I know I get bored usually if I do something samey for too long!" Kirk was really letting words flow... As much as he liked jogging alone and relaxing, he couldn't help being social when he saw people enjoying the same thing he was. At least by assumption! He clapped his hands, and rubbed them together. "If you don't have any ideas on what to do, I can throw some your way, if you'd like!" Now, the motion looked kind of mischievous, but in all honesty, he was doing it to warm his hands up. They had been against cold hard ground for a while, and now he wasn't exactly doing anything to keep them warm afterall!

Dudette...? The head of our heroine drifting to a slight slant at one side at the greeting that she was given back, though Miss Crawford hadn’t really known what she might expect in return from this stranger it took her a little by surprise to be referred to in such a manner, though a happy one for the most part. There seeming to be a sense of novelty in the term and the way in which it was delivered, it seemed an oddly endearing way in which to refer to her, and the brunette couldn’t help but smile as she slowed to something of a stop near this intriguing individual.
“Heheheheh, yes I suppose?” The moniker that the young man had chosen not the only thing that seemed to ingratiate him toward Chloe either, the sense of energy and enthusiasm that this strange lad gave off seemed oddly infectious really, and also rather familiar. “The chill isn’t too bad so long as you’re working hard enough to warm yourself up?” The emerald eyed enchantress an upbeat soul but perhaps not quite as lively as the boy before her, as he commented on her outfit the teen couldn’t help but look down herself and note the area to which he referred visually, but in all honesty had not really noticed much coldness nipping at her ankles. Clearly she was hot enough to keep herself warm with a little jogging.
“Heeheeheehee, I suppose I’m not sure of the distance… Or the time, really?” Smiling and tilting her head to the side as next she was asked how long she had been exercising for, in all honesty Miss Crawford hadn’t really paid much attention to any aspect by which she could quantify her experience, other than the slight tenderness in her legs and breathlessness she felt of course. “I just kind of switched off and enjoyed the scenery?” Not really familiar enough with her surroundings to gauge the distance she had travelled in her slow and steady style or sporting a watch that could help her spot the matter of minutes she had been engaged in motion, for the most part this amateur exerciser had mostly set out with an idea that she would simply continue until she felt like she was ‘done’, and had little more in mind for her routine than that.
“Hmmmm… You know, that doesn’t sound like a bad idea, actually?” In fact now that she considered that it seeming perhaps a little foolish in regard to improving her fitness, though she hadn’t been going easy on herself Chloe realized that she might have been doing things a little inefficiently, and as such welcomed the offer that this strange boy gave to her. “I think I probably do need to get a bit fitter for school, and you look like the sort of person who knows how to make the most of a session like this?” Certainly not in bad shape but more used to taking part in scheduled sessions of physical activity with a tutor in the schools that she had attended, now that she was in more of a competitive environment the green eyed girl guessed that she might need to get better at working off her own initiative, and maybe someone as keen on working out as this boy seemed to be might just be able to point her in the right direction in that regard?

Kirk had a bad tendency to go full bluster whenever he thought he was invited to talk. That meant no holding back whatsoever when talking with people. Sometimes, this lead to people freaking out a bit, once he began his charge, forcing Kirk to backpedal a bit. However, this time the girl in front of her just laughed a little, and agreed with what he had said. So, Kirk didn't slow down at all, and kept just moving forward with his talking, uninterrupted. Though he couldn't help but just look thoughtful for a second. "Pfff, ya got me there!" Pretty much the same reason why he could keep going for a little while without too heavy clothes. "I suppose you've already got your blood running proper then! That's great!"
Of course, the details of her exercise didn't really matter that much. But Kirk was curious nonetheless! Heck, when she proceeded to say how she switched off, Kirk just snapped his fingers, looking a bit awkward for a bit, pressing his hand on his forehead. "Aw man, I stopped you when you were in the zone already! That's rude of me! Now I feel kinda rude!" He should have just joined her instead. He wouldn't have had trouble keeping up with her. The scenery comment he just kind of skipped. "Gets real easy to ignore the cold that way too!" He lifted his finger like he had just realized it.
However, she did agree on doing something different being a smart idea... even bringing up that she should get more fit for school. Kirk nodded. "Eeyup! Makes sense to me! They can be real competitive!" Atleast back home in America. If you wanted to keep your position in the team, you had to always keep your physique good enough or prepare to warm-up the bench. "I suppose in that regard we should go for more of a general training sort of thing, huh? Make sure all the places in your body are good to go! Though in my school, things tend to get a bit more extreme, hehe!" In some ways, U.A was not that much different in competitiveness. Well, aside from people actually being friendly to you about your quirk!
"Now, of course..." He started walking a bit like some sort of general. "You've already done a bit of the BEST overall training there is! Running and jogging! Gets all the muscles in ya bouncing and working!" He took a couple of bigger steps, lifting his knees high. "But, I guess we could just moves from legs up! Up to the waist!" He gripped it from both sides. "A lot of people do this on tv, whenever my grandpas watching. and it does do wonders! Just spin your waist, round and round...!" He started making a circle with his waist. A slow pace, which gave him a lovely tickle around his pelvis. Since he was technically warmed up already, it was a little bit easier than usual.
"After that, we do some more stretching! One of the simpler moves!" He turned towards the sun, lifted his arms up, and shouted "PRAISE THE SUN! ...And touch your toes!" His body bent downwards, as he reached towards his toes with his big arms. Then, he proceeded to stretch straight back up once again shouting the phrase, and reaching down for his toes. "PRAISE THE SUN! ...And touch your toes! You get me!? Keep it up!" He kept repeating it, hoping that the girl followed along. Admittedly, he was being a bit over the top, but hey! It sure woke him up even more! "PRAISE THE SUN! ...And touch your toes! Gonna hell of a bendy back and thick muscle this way!"

“Let’s do this then, coach!” Happy to see that her new friend was so enthusiastic about the idea of drilling her, Miss Crawford clapped her hands together a couple of times as she fed off his eagerness and energy and attempted to mimic it, though in no way trying to mock him with this behaviour. “My Name’s Chloe, by the way?” It suddenly seeming to occur to her as they got started that she had failed to introduce herself, the green eyed girl offered her name as she started to pull her knees up as high as she could like the boy before her seemed to, feeling a little protest in her worn limbs as she copied the behaviour she saw in front of her as best she could and tried to keep pace with the lad as well, even if it wasn’t easy.
“Heeeheeehee, this one is fun~?” Perhaps finding herself a little bit relieved when they skipped onto the next little exercise and she got the chance to ‘rest’ her legs a little, or at least switch up the exercise to something more strenuous, after taking a moment to take in what her impromptu trainer was doing Chloe couldn’t help but giggle as she imitated this movement as well. “Reminds me of Hula Hooping?” Amused by the unusual action as she rolled her waist and hips around and immediately imagined herself trying to keep a ring winding around her as she did so, as she curved her pelvis around in a controlled and careful manner the brunette couldn’t help but feel like she was a little girl again as she thrust her pert little posterior around herself, and even got so lost in the dancing manoeuvre that she couldn’t help but lift her hands up to her head on instinct and shake her money maker around like some kind of middle-eastern dancer or something.
“O-Oh, yes!” Almost finding herself totally lost in that near hypnotic swaying of her hips and finding herself a little startled when the young man next to her called for another move, after blinking the brown haired beauty nodded in assent at what he demanded and shot her hands up as high as they could reach, before stooping forward from the waist and leaning forward. Perhaps not the most able girl in terms of stamina but her slender frame seeming plenty flexible if nothing else, Miss Crawford thought nothing of sticking behind up and out behind her as she lunged for toes and was happy to see that she could reach them with not only her fingertips but also the flat of her hands as well as she repeated the exercise over and over, feeling somewhat proud of herself for that little fact…

Already, this person was calling him a coach. It did give Kirk a tinge of pride. Just showed how much better he was managing his voice! Meant that it evoked some amount of respect from the person saying it! Heck, she was even clapping. Although, the obvious question came through soon. Kirk realized how often he actually skipped on introducing himself with new folks... maybe cause it usually didn't matter, or they at school usually knew him already? Whatever it was, perhaps it was a little bit rude. "Well, Chloe! My names Kirk! And I hope you are ready for a workout!" He gave a heroic point towards her, like pointing at some random citizen from a crowd of just one person. He wanted to really make this fun for the both of them!
Although admittedly, her enthusiasm showed with her lifting her knees high already before he actually told her to do anything specifically yet. "Raring to go, huh? Well so am I!" And with that, the waist rolling exercise began... For a moment it was pretty much just a calm pace, with nothing special about it, other than the girl enjoying the exercise a plenty just by looking at it. "It is!" However, as she started doing it himself, Kirk like a good coach should, kept an eye on her to see that she was not making too small motions... "Well, yeah! It's pretty much exactly that, but a hula hoop helps you keep rhythm, since you can't stop! Without one though, you can hit those specific points that you wanna do, without needing to worry about the hoop dropping, you know?"
The longer they did it though, He couldn't help but notice that the girl was... actually doing a little bit better motion than he was. Well, kind of obvious. Girls had slimmer figures, so it allowed to do a bit wider motion. But look at her doing the motion repeatedly, It was pretty mesmerizing... Like watching dancing... And for some reason Kirk felt like his cheeks were turning redder by the second. Maybe that was the reason why he had so swiftly moved from one exercise to the next. Nothing mesmerizing about touching your toes after all!
Except this time, when he looked how she was faring, well... the girl was bending like a jackknife. "Whoa!" Kirks eyes widened a bit, as he accidentally exclaimed his amazement. Admittedly, the girl being able to do this was awful familiar... reminded him of his session with Mari! And with that he raised his body straight back up, and proceeded to laugh a bit awkwardly. "Eh hehe, I see that one of us has a bit more experience with Yoga than the other...!" He rubbed the underside of his nose with his finger. "Now then... Let's keep going up! That's back, and waist done... so next up, arms!" He flexed his biceps, clearly visible even from under the coat surprisingly. "As much as people say not to skip leg day, some people start prioritizing that over training their arms. And honestly in my opinion, the opposite is almost worse looking than just training your arms." He snorted, stifling a laugh. There was this guy back in America who had that sort of thing going...
BUT, priorities. "Now, push-ups are good, but the grounds a bit too cold for those. So instead..." He stretched his arms up towards the skies... and started spinning them, like slow propellers. "This is the simplest way to get a bit of weight against your arms, without needing dumbbells! Though, you don't wanna spin them too hard. It's hell on your shoulders however...!" He proceeded to start spinning one of his arms in the opposited direction to the other. "This, is good training for hand coordination, if you wanna try it, hehe!" Another quite simple exercise. But hey, That was the point.

“It’s nice to meet you Kirk~” Smiling as she learned the name of her impromptu instructor, in other circumstances Miss Crawford might have extended her hand to shake or maybe even tossed a hug toward the right person upon introduction, but right now didn’t seem the best time to do that. It not seeming to be the best idea to interrupt their exercise, of course, all that the British brunette could offer was an adoring smile in place of a more formal gesture of greeting, and hope that was enough.
“Heeheehee, I did a lot at my old school?” Finding herself rather happy when her flexibility was complimented, the green eyed girl grinned as she steadily eased herself back upright, and offered a little explanation for her expertise to the young man who taught her. “A lot of the people there were quirkers who had a rough time in life, so I think we got taught Yoga and Tai Chi and stuff as a kind of therapy thing?” Getting into such bouts of flexibility not something she had planned but rather something that Chloe had fallen into, while she had gained a certain appreciation for the meditative and health benefits of these disciplines she was not the type to eat up the credit without handing out a portion to whomever was due it, and in this regard it was certainly clear that the Hightower Academy for Gifted Children were due some praise for how they had helped her, and even more so her classmates.
“Y-Yeah, they’re not my strong suit either…” Blushing a little bit when she confessed the fact that she was not a soul that particularly relished the good old push up, though Miss Crawford was in reasonable shape aerobically her strength abilities were nothing to write home about, and she had found herself struggling on that particular exercise in physical exercises in school tests before this as well. “Heheheheheh, let’s give it a try?” Instead finding herself performing a charming little exercise where she felt a little like a human helicopter, as the bubbly brit began to slowly twirl her hands around she found it rather an easy move to perform and was happy at that fact, or was until things started to get harder.
That IS kind of hard, isn’t it? All too quickly noting how her shoulders began to ache when she sustained the motion for more than a matter of seconds, once the notion of moving one hand against the other was thrown into the arena Chloe really started to feel her tolerance waning, and yet tried to tough it out for both her own benefit and that of the boy nearby. “Wow, you know a lot of stuff, don’t you Kirk?” Instead electing to try and take her mind off the gathering combination of tiredness and tenderness that extended above her shoulders by dipping into a little conversation, though her mind was focused on form and keeping her hands moving no matter how painful it was, our leading lady couldn’t help but comment on the expertise of this new man in her life with a hope of that finding out a little more about him might just dull the discomfort she felt…

Admittedly, Chloes excited explanation about where she had done yoga made a lot of sense! Heck even the reason struck a cord. "Yeah! Nothing more relieving than doing something sporty to get all that bad stuff out of your head!" Lately especially Kirk had felt the need to get over some things, with all the stuff at home and at school... Back at his school, Yoga was more rare sport to do. Physical training was where it was at! "Hey, everybody has their own thing, no biggie!" And heck, she seemed to be enjoying what they were doing, so that just made it even better.
While twirling their hands, Kirk observed Chloe in case she was doing something wrong. He really meant it when he said doing it too hard was painful. He didn't expect the sudden praise about knowing a lot of things. A silly grin, and wave of a hand (a little bit silly looking since his arm was still spinning) followed. "Daaw, I don't know that much! I've just been doing this for quite a while! Since I was a little kid in fact!" He straightened his arms, and started spinning his arms in reverse. His rhythm for the spinning was a little bit awkward though because of the previous motion. "Wanted to stand out a bit, and doing sports just felt like the best way to do so you know..." There was of course more behind it, but that would have ruined the mood for the exercise. "That's why I am studying to be a hero! Not much better feeling than having folks cheer for you, while you are doing your job." Well technically he could achieve similar thing in sports... there was clearly more to it.
Of course, Kirk did make the awkward connection in his head soon after. She had said that Yoga was used for therapy for those folks who had a hard time with their quirk... For a little moment he considered if he should ask about it... "Hey, uh..." But as he got the words out, he realized, that that was his pushy side showing again. What would he feel like if somebody wanted to ask HIM about what was going on? Especially as a total stranger!? "Y-You ready for the next exercise?" He tried to discreetly switch the topic back on the workout itself.
He stopped spinning his arms, and proceeded to just bend his neck towards his shoulder, stretching his fingers forward with a satisfying crack. "It's a little thing, but neck gets stiff a bit easy so..." He swung his head on the other shoulder over his chest. "It's good to keep that one stretched as well!" A simple ending to a full package... Although, Now it was time for Kirk to turn into the pupil for a second. "You got any warm-up techniques yourself?! Always looking forward to trying new stuff that I haven't considered, you know!" Heck who knows, maybe she knew some yoga moves that Mari hadn't shown him back then! His eyes gleamed towards her with his usual excited curiosity.

“Hahahah, it shows~ You look like you’re in great shape?” It hardly a surprise for Chloe to hear that her new friend was a lifelong exercise enthusiast, the rather impressive figure that this fellow cut was easy for anyone to see, and more than that his bearing just seemed to radiate a kind of body confidence like no other. That energy that he showed so readily and his immediate knowledge and enthusiasm for helping her reminding the bubbly brunette of someone she might meet at a gym, up to this point the green eyed girl had been expecting him to tell her that he was a personal trainer or something, though was not at all disappointed when he revealed his true ‘profession’ soon after.
“Oh~! You’re a hero student too~?” The dainty young dish finding herself rather delighted in fact when Kirk revealed that he was engaged in much the same training course as she was, the face of the foreign fox lit up at the news and she clapped her hands together when her burly buddy mentioned his studies, and she quickly confessed that this provided them with another commonality. Wasn’t the world a small place?
“I just got to UA, transferred from the Valiant Institute~?” It not unusual for her to find herself surprised to discover a fellow student either, though she felt perhaps a hint of guilt for not recognising this boy sooner, Miss Crawford certainly had a valid reason to not do so either. Fresh at the school and barely even managing to recognise the faces that were in her own class let alone any of the others, the emerald eyed enchantress was reasonably certain that she would remember a memorable person like this if she had been taking classes with him, that was for sure.
“O-Oh!” Squeaking next when she heard that loud crack of her impromptu instructors action and actually feeling a little bit worried because of it, though our lady lead had begun to imitate the action of the boy when the exercise started she couldn’t help but straighten up at the sound, and even went so far as to trot over to him because of it. “Are you… That didn’t hurt, did it?” The concerned Chloe rushing forward and even reaching up to rest her hand upon the noisy neck to check to make sure he was OK, alarm was apparent in her green gaze as she checked her friend over, but melted away quickly when he seemed none the worse for wear because of it.
“Hmmmmm, I know a few things…” Taking a step or two back when next it seemed to be her turn to take over the class, though Kirk’s offer to let her lead their next round of exercise surprised Miss Crawford, she was not particularly daunted by it really. “How about….” Certainly feeling somewhat indebted to the boy who had gone out of his way to show her a few moves and also happy to share her expertise as well, the bubbly brit hummed and paused as she wondered which sorts of exercises would be good for a beginner, but unfortunately got no real chance to provide one.
Instead finding her attention drawn away from their discourse as a wail of worry seemed to split the air, all too easily Chloe found her head turning toward a woman that seemed to be in distress, but when she discovered the reason for this it would be entirely understandable…

Kirk had not taken notice before to the girls weird way of speech. It almost felt like all her sentences came out as questions, making Kirk feel like he needed to answer them! However, when it was combined with these praises of him being in great shape and everything, it just made it easier and easier for Kirk to swell with pride more and more! "Oh, come on, dudette! Anybody could be this muscly with my workout routine, hehe! Besides, hard to fit in thin spaces when you are this thick, you know!" He bashfully tried to wave off these praises, maybe in a bit of a self-praising fashion, but hey, anybody praising him extensively always had this sort of an effect on him.
However, once again, he learned that the person he had been coaching was actually a hero student! "OH! Yeeah, I kind of should have guessed probably, hehe!" Kirk had noticed a minor pattern. People who tended to jog in somehow uncomfortable weather, like rain or the current cold, tended to be the more determined type! However, this time she had outright transferred from some other school over to here! "Honestly, I should have picked up on the fact that you are so bendy! That sort of athleticness is very heroic, you know!" Really made her stand out on her own atleast whilst doing it!
Whilst stretching however, Kirk was surprised to find out, how panicked she got over such a usual thing! "Nah, no worries, it's just the sort of..." However, the girl outright walked over, and started checking his neck, touching it even. The cold of her hand spread through his body instantly, making him feel this moment of extreme shakes! "BRRRR! H-hey!" He took a step back, shaking his head for a second. "Look, it's all fine! It's the GOOD kind of snap! Feels good when the spot thats been stiff for a long time opens up! You know, like, when something locks into place! that sort of thing!" ...Maybe she had some quirk that allowed her to never feel that sort of thing? Would make sort of sense... though she had been training too so... Maybe it was just overall physique.
Speaking of that training though, Kirk was very excited to see what this girl could teach him! However, just when the things were starting to progress, there was a sudden screech, which made kirk instinctively lower his head in-between his shoulders. "Whats that about?!" His head snapped towards the direction where the screech came from, as he could see somewhat what was happening. "My baby! My baby is...!" Looking at the sight momentarily, it was pretty clear that something was wrong with the babies carriage, as it was slowly drifting into the air, with the baby assumedly still in it! "Her quirk has appeared!"
"Come on, dudette!" Kirk proceeded to sprint on over, as the carriage was rising higher and higher, surprisingly quickly too! As he reached a good enough position, he proceeded to squat and try to leap over to the carriage through the sheer power of his legs. Too bad that wasn't enough, as it kept rising higher. "Well, uh, A bit of quirk usage is probably allowed in cases like this!" He started taking his jacket of, as he opened his pouch. He could endure cold for a second. With how high he could leap with the help of his pouch, this shouldn't be any sort of issue if he just put a bit of FORCE behind it!
"Be careful, please! She might fall from the carriage!" Kirk froze a bit. "Okay then, uh..." Yeah, if he smacked full force into the carriage, it would probably flip over, and have the baby fall into the snow! "You got any ideas how to make sure she won't drop and we can get the carriage down?!"

Fancy us meeting like this~?
“Oh goodness…” Perhaps a little bit awed when she first laid eyes on what was occurring, for a moment or two Miss Crawford couldn’t help but focus on the floating stroller and feel just a little bit impressed by what she saw, at least until she realized what the commotion about. “Oh no!” That look of awe as something one never expected to set into the sky seeming to give way to a feeling of terror after she realized that the object was not empty and all of a sudden the horror of the woman making a whole lot more sense, the emerald eyes of the exerciser grew wide as she spotted a small shape within the carriage and almost instinctively she began to move forward, without really even realizing what she was doing.
“R-Right!” One step following after another as the girl instinctively began to walk toward the scene, as the big and burly buddy she had made lurched forward and overtook her, Chloe snapped out of her daze and nodded at his encouragement. It not even really seeming to occur to the girl that they might get in trouble for intervening until her companion mentioned it, in all honesty the brunette had thought to act and then deal with the consequences after the fact, though she did suppose that she felt a little more assured by the idea that exceptions might be made for them. Not that, given the situation, the threat of possible trouble would have really stopped her, ultimately.
If I can just… Racing closer to the scene as the buggy hung in the air, as her rescue training and practice with her powers took over, without even thinking about it the young student whipped up something she hoped might help, and sent it flying upward via the strength in her quirk. Fashioning a ball-like bubble of solidified air a little larger than a beach ball in but a moment, and then lifting it toward the sky with a push of her hand, Miss Crawford aimed to wrap her creation around her target in a manner similar to an old game she had played regarding cute little monsters, but unfortunately it appeared her imagination exceeded her means on this occasion.
No, it’s already too high for me! Barely even thinking about the limit in range she had as she sent her sphere skyward but all too quickly being made aware of it, as she reached out to snatch the buggy and tow it back downward the teen was confronted by her threshold rather cruelly as the little ‘pod’ she had whipped up evaporated before it could get to her target. Unfortunately her creation not seeming to have the reach needed to snag it and instead dispersing back into an ordinary mix of oxygen and nitrogen only a foot or two beneath it, all that Chloe could do was curse her limits inwardly and then look to her new companion to see if he had any ideas.
“I nearly had it, but I need to get closer…” Certainly it seeming that neither of their powers on their own seemed to have the right makeup in order to seize the stroller, as she looked up at the buggy that hung in the air she couldn’t help but feel like she was letting everyone down around her, but realised something far more important as well. “And fast… I think it’s still climbing?” The size of the object in the sky seeming like it was gradually getting smaller, though the ascent of the object was not particularly fast she knew that she needed to act soon, otherwise things would only get more and more dangerous for the child from here on out…

Kirk observed as the girl next to her tried to do something of her own to help the situation. Ranged bubbles!? Heck yeah, that should work out perfectly! "Closer... Just a little bit closer...!" As it wrapped around the target, Kirk lifted his arms in cheers, only for it to change into a pained "AAAAW!" As the bubble evaporated. Guess it was some sort of a ranged issue. Maybe she was a first year? Anyways, as the girl said that she would need to get closer, Kirk immediately got an idea! "Okay, I have a plan... But, it involves some VERY very risky stuff!" Of course, a hero should be ready for something like this at all times, but... Still, seemed a bit wonky. "Hurry, I dunno if she is gonna go even higher!" The lady continued to panic. Seemingly she had no quirk for this situation...
Kirk proceeded to squat a bit, placing his hands in front of him in sort of a cup, as he pointed it downwards. He turned his head towards Chloe. "Now uh... I want you to hop onto my palms! Then, I am gonna LAUNCH you into the air, and you grab atleast the baby with that ability of yours! I will catch you guys after you fall down!" It was a simple plan, but with kirks body structure, it should be simple enough! The girl couldn't weigh too much!
When the girl got onto his own palms Kirk, took a deep breath. "HrrrrrRAAAAAGH!" A brief shockwave of air almost pushed around, as Kirk lifted off! With that, they gained moderate height already, but like an extra rocket strapped onto a main one, Kirk gave one final push, chucking the girl straight up into the air, as he himself would start to fall! Luckily, Kirk had fought so many flying enemies (so many of his classmates being able to fly in some way), Kirk was very much so used to landing after jumping good! His knees only hurt SOMEWHAT after he landed on his feet! "Ugh...!"
However, his head soon snapped to look straight up again, as he pushed his arms forward, ready to grab whatever was gonna be falling down! "I am ready down here! Feel free to come down...! If your quirk allows to do that I mean! I mean I WILL CATCH YOU EVEN IF IT DOESN'T don't you worry!" ...Yeah After he had done this plan, Kirk was awfully regretful about it! What if he didn't catch her!? That would lead into probably a broken bone or two! that and a DEAD BABY! "I GOT YOU! I DEFINITELY GOT YOU!" He had caught smaller balls before! A teenager sized bundle shouldn't be any harder right!?

“R-Right!” Not exactly why she felt such an instant sense of trust in a boy that she had just met but eagerly obeying his instruction as best she could, while Miss Crawford had no idea what Kirk was going to attempt she threw herself into the fray with gusto that would probably make the lad himself proud, and attempted to assist him in the best way she could. Spinning around and throwing her behind into his waiting hands upon instinct since it seemed the safest position for both of them to proceed upwards, while some girls might have had certain reservations about throwing their rump at someone they barely knew the brunette felt none of these in this moment of urgency, and simply let herself be taken control of by the burly boy who she had met only moments ago.
“Uunnnnff!!!” This faith not misplaced either, although Chloe was made to grimace and groan as she found her fair form being lifted into the air by a force she did not entirely understand but knew that it came from the figure whose grasp she rested herself in, as the area around her seemed to move away and grow smaller she knew that she had made the right choice. Especially after his next action.
“Oooooof!” Perhaps not the only person who was placing a lot of faith in another person in this dire circumstance either, though Miss Crawford looked toward the object of their rescue attempt when they reached the apex of their first jump, all too quickly she found her body lurching upward once more when the second stage of this Apollo-esque boost kicked into gear and she found herself achieving even more altitude in her ascent. Shot even further into the sky by the potent power that her partner possessed and looking down as he seemed to sacrifice himself for the mission, though the elegant Englishwoman felt a swell of sympathy for the boy as she looked toward him falling back down beneath her, she also shot him a nod that would hopefully tell him that ‘I got this’ as she pulled her hands back and then thrust them both in the direction of the buoyant buggy that by now had a rather alarmed baby screaming from within.
Much easier… Certainly finding herself appreciating the efforts of her ally as she conjured up a pair of clownish hands out of the air itself and send them shooting toward her target, it was with no small amount of satisfaction that Chloe saw their slightly clouded form wrap around the buggy to protect it, and then pull herself toward it. Not even worrying about her own trip back to the ground all that much given the control she had over her surroundings when she was in the sky, as the effort of pulling the pram from the sky tugged the two of them together the girl began to drift downward, but did not panic to any particular degree.
“I’m fine, Kirk!” Shouting down to the boy beneath her as he called out to her and wrapping both her hands around the buggy with the baby as she did so, once she had the frightened little figure held secure the girl looked beneath her and swiped a hand beneath her, falling a matter of meters before suddenly adjusting her attitude via the effort of a cloudy looking surface that formed beneath her like a magic carpet. Or something similar, one supposed.
Who would have thought my old kiddy slide would come in handy like this? The effort of the emerald eyed enchantress partially instinctual but that reflex something that had been developed years before, as she let her quirk do the work and create a surface down which she could slide the girl couldn’t help but smile, and feel an awful temptation to call out in excitement. Thankfully the stress of the moment seeming to curb the impulse she had to go ‘whee!” as she rushed toward the ground with a buggy in her hands, all too quickly the girl would find herself skidding across the grass to earn a few scuffs and scrapes, but both her and more importantly the babe in her arms would be fine afterward…
