Well, the Boss wanted it and thus so be it. He was once again sent on a ride to fetch someone for his audience. First it was ParaSyte and this time it was Lady Scandal herself. Antonio wondered how she looked like. He was curious, the Boss considered a limo for the Lady, but in the end changed his mind as he didnt want to overwhelm her. So instead Antonio went with his car instead. Once he arrived to the destination which was the cafe, all he had to do was find her. He parked his car and entered the establishment which was the cafe. He stood there at the entrace a bit confused since he had no idea which one was Lady Scandal, so he scanned the area hoping a pretty lady would wave to him. Well... the CORRECT pretty lady "So, how do I approach Lady Scandal?" he thought to himself as he didnt properly think about it, and then he remembered, he'l just text her. Duh. Luckily he knew his Boss's account and password. A fact that will get him in trouble, but it was a cost to get the job done. He texted then

[attr="class","textieno"]Why would you ever come up with the name Nero? That was just something weird and to be honest, she had to put on the search machines to even know what people meant with it. Something something old Rome, whatever was the first that she got and yes she could imagine that in one of the settings in Tokyo Underground. But she was rather curious. Before she had to leave she had to make sure everything and everyone at home was fine. That she took her medicine. Fixed the face construction, her blonde hair and the glasses that she had repaired by Fix or well they weren't as broken as she thought but fixed none the less! That was a good thing and it was a moment to make an appointment in a bar in Musutafu. Seriously most people met her in Tokyo so this was a new thing on the Lady Scandal Tour. She could almost hear Elena and G yelling in her ear but they wouldn't not simultaneous at least. That was another issue she had to fix and she wasn't even sure if she would dare to face both and how to face both. There was just a lot going on when it came to what she should and should not do. Dressed in her overall outfit that would make people pay attention to her breasts, because yes safety measures. She was sure she would figure it out eventually. Right now she had not lied toG about what she was going to do but she had at least managed to convince him that she knew what she was doing and that she would be in public, safe and sound.[break][break]
Because of that, it was surprising that when she arrived at the bar, it seemed to be rather crowded. With women. Really what were they all doing here on a Friday afternoon? Waiting for the bachelor or something? Hanako rolled her eyes and did not want to think about it, she would see how it goes and took one of the tables in the back and went to consider to look more at her phone and what to do with it. What kind of questions she wanted to ask, he had asked if she was real or not. She was the real deal and she had not liked what she found online about her or well her new her. For swear word's sake, she had been tricked, her not writing since the summer had certainly stolen the show from a lot of people and it was high time to go and write about that but how? The good thing is that it wasn't all posted by Metropolitan so her boss didn't betray her but why did they think they could get away with it? Her blog had a lot of messages asking where she was and that people had information. Hm, maybe it was time to restart the white phone again that was hidden, locked away in the drawer of her make-up table.[break][break]
As she did not look up at the door she missed that someone came in and looked around for the correct Lady. Nope all she did was sip her glass of water and scroll through her phone and the messages she had found. She should have taken the right phone especially because the official Tokyo underground chat was on there so they could not trace it to this phone. It was now redirected to this one as she had not expected herself to be on there for quite some time. She got a ping on her phone and noticed that Nero had send her a message and she quickly looked up and waved. She stood up and brushed her now-blonde hair behind her right ear and smiled. Right she had to go and stay in the role of Scandal. No names, no nothing.

Once he found out that it was the blonde woman that was his Lady, he smiled and walked over to her table and offered her his hand to help her up "Good day to you, miss" he said and then kissed her hand "I am a fan of your work, but alas I am not Nero. I am his assistant. Nero would love to meet you at his home, where you two can talk more in private and well" he looked around them "less money spending" he then once again gave her a bright and reassuring smile "I am merely your driver, miss Scandal"
He then watched her with his green eyes to see what she would say or do. He also wondered if she was single, for personal and private reasons, granted sometimes even if they were taken they didnt mind his company. But on the more pressing subject at hand, Antonio needed to talk her into getting in his car so he can take her to the Boss. He knew that she was distrusting of strangers due to her line of work and that whole Tokyo Underground. They had to do this carefully as to not tip her off that they were the mafia, but instead very professional business men

[attr="class","textieno"]The people of Tokyo Underground were a peculiar one. She had met Elena there and Fix and many more. Not all where what she was happy about and some of her jobs were put on hold but she was maybe slightly afraid of what would come if she continued those. But she had a goal, that man needed to be put behind bars and she would do everything within her power to talk to him, get slightly close to him. That did not mean she wasn't afraid to say something wrong or give the wrong impression. She was sure she had already done that and she was also worrying if he would invite her again. She got a note that the meeting had to be cancelled that probably had to do with the auction and everything that happened after it. She did not have steal nerves and sometimes she wished she did. So now she was here, doing specifically what she said she wouldn't do to Elena. She did not know Nero, had not heard anything about him and the curiosity got the better hand of her. So here she was sitting in a bar in Musutafu. Waving at a stranger.[break][break]
She took his hand, intending to shake it but he helped her up from her chair and she looked a bit surprised and especially when he kissed her hand. Funny, she had not expected such a thing, maybe it was a vigilante as well. "Good afternoon." She mentioned to say albeit hesitant because of her surprise, she looked up in his face. He looked friendly for what she expected but her smile disappeared as soon as he said he was not Nero. Interesting to compliment her to bring the blow later. Oh the man had an assistant, how wonderful and how extraordinary. Just when she had dropped her own facade of assistance. No, she had now learned how to apply the make-up and wig herself perfectly, so there was no need for that at all. "His home?" That was a surprising thing, would she be drugged? That would be bad for the baby? Would she have a blindfold again or what? She did not like that when she had to go and meet the Yakuza Princess. It had made her nauseous as hell. But yes talking in private was nice.[break][break]
Less money spending? What kind of peasant did he think she was? Well she brushed her long blonde hair over her her shoulder. "And will you blindfold me and guide you to the car as if it is some sort of surprise party?" She asked him, she should quickly send a message to G and she clicked invisibly on her glasses to make a picture of the man that send to her phone and started recording. "I assume it is still in Musutafu or so I hope? I don't need to know the address." But she did not like the idea and she would still hold her phone, without looking at it, she could send the file to G by clicking on two buttons. Her eyes were still looking at the assistant.

He smiled and nodded when she repeated 'his home?' He did stop with the smiling when she suggested blindfold. "Um, yes. It is in Musutafu. But, why would I blindfold you?" he shakes his head. "Do not worry. We are no bad guys, we dont have any bad blindfolds or... whatever villains do. Think of us more as business people who are fans of your work." he said in a friendly manner and ushered her to his car.
Like a gentleman, he opened the cars door to her and let her in gently, after which he went in the vehicle and started it up. He soon started driving, as he drove he told her "It is just 10 minutes from here... maybe 15. If you want, I can put some music so we do not ride in silence, unless you wish to talk to me" he then chuckles "Hey, if you ask me questions, does that count as an interview?" he asked But soon he mostly focused on getting to his destination so Lady Scandal could talk to the main Boss. He didnt want to bore her with chatter that she didnt want. His job was just to get her to the Boss and make her comftarble so she could trust them

[attr="class","textieno"]She was actually surprised by his laconic look on his face and it would almost make her giggle. That is if the conversation was funny and it was not. She had been blindfolded, shaken, brought, turned, dropped everything really to get a good interview. "To not show me where you are taking me, of course." She, therefore, answered baffled, "The whole idea of your boss his home, it should be something sacred right. I mean not that I would be doing anything with it but ehm." How to explain it, you could not bring some random stranger into your house, who knew what would happen. She frowned a little, he told her not to worry and surely she was nothing to worry about either but even if they were not the bad guys, how did they know for certain Hanako wasn't one either. Fan of her work hm, she wondered what favours that would bring. "Well I don't see any issue with it, to me it is just a matter of protection but that is fine if it does not bother you or your boss." She really wondered who this boss was and what his influence was. Most people brought her to Tokyo, not to Musutafu. She should keep her eyes and ears open as he gallantly brought her to the car and let her sit before going to his side and start the car.[break][break]
She looked at his car, a rather old fancy one that she could appreciate. She wanted a car, they had one now but she wanted a fancier one. She kept her mouth shut and looked up at... what was his name again? She wasn't sure if she should ask but he spoke to her and she nodded. "It could be if you want to." She said with a small giggle, "How long do you work for your boss?" She asked as it was rather intriguing and curious to see how all the systems work, especially because he seemed to have some sort of accent, was his boss a foreigner as well? It would maybe give in an impression of Nero before she would meet him.[break][break]
She held her bag closely on her lap, it did not contain much and god she hated the white phone as she knew it was in there and she wanted to get rid of it, but she was bored, slowly picking up the things she should not do and yet she was doing it, how much of a bad person did that make her? She would see if the man who drove her would answer small questions, if he answered the previous one, she would ask a second. "Do you like your job?" Keeping open what that job is, apart from just fetching her, maybe it was the dirty work of a man that did not want or could be outside. Even if he had said they were not villains, not everyone saw themselves as the bad guy.

Lady Scandal's answer made Antonio raise his eyebrow "I mean... if you dont want to see, then I guess you can close your eyes and I'll put my jacket on your head if you prefer that secrecy" he said. When Lady Scandal said how the Boss's home is something sacred and stuff, he pondered by placing his hand on his chin "The Boss likes privacy. This location is not private enough. Besides, I think he would treat you nicely. So that is why you shouldnt worry. Besides from your articles we could see your are a good reporter" he told her
He ushered Lady Scandal to his vehicle and in a gentlemany manner opened the door to help her in. He then sat in his seat, started it up and started driving, telling her that in 10ish minutes they will be there. Antonio asked Lady Scandal that if she asks him a question, does that count as an interview. She answered with the most charming and adorible giggle, which made him smile. She soon asked him how long does he work for his Boss "I worked 24/7 for 25 years. Maybe 24 or 26. Somewhere around that. I am the Boss's assistant and I do whatever he tells me to do. Sometimes I even work as the waiter or a cook at his restaurant because we are a bit understaffed." he answered her question
He noticed she held her bag closely, he noticed it in the corner of his eye. So he suggested "You could place your bag in the back seat so you can sit more comfortably" besides, they were almost there, he was a swift and quick driver who knew the best roads to take. Lady Scandal then asked does he like his job. He gladly answered "I love it! Sure I worked long. But I dont get tired. Each new day is a new challenge and a new experience! No matter what I work,I get to met new people. But I am sadly not good at making friends, so thats sad. But I try not to let that get to me. I just try to keep to myself. Only the strong get to survive by themselves or however that saying goes"

[attr="class","textieno"]It wasn't that she did not want to see but it was that most people did not want her to watch. She prefered not to be blindfolded. Considering she already felt nauseous again in a car. Which was strange, that had not happened in a while and the other time was because of other reasons. She was surely freaking out about nothing. This was her first Scandal thing without the bullshit of an assistant, she was simply disguised and her first interview again since June. You would think that the feeling wouldn't escape her but she was quite worried about it in general. She might screw up, might get nightmares like of the Yakuza princess, although now she was better disguised, better prepared and she was going to perfect this even more. Maybe she should even consider wearing other contacts to hide her eyes. Now this wasn't the time to worry about it, she should answer the man. "It's not about me, silly." She tried to be casual, be in the role of Scandal and her sassy comments, hence the silly. "If you and your boss do not mind than neither do I. I prefer to see where we are going and prefer to not have a blindfold tugging on my face or a jacket over my hair." Yes, show some vanity. "I prefer to be treated nicely yes." She mentioned and she would smile amused, they liked her articles, what more could a girl wish for. Her wedding ring for starters as she was not wearing it.[break][break]
Within the car she had to laugh about him, definitely, it could have been worse and now she asked him about his work and she was rather impressed. Twenty-four seven for twenty-five years? But then what was his age? You could not work when you were a baby? Or maybe as a kid, support the other, she assumed the Boss would be a young person than as well. She had no idea, maybe it was an older being and a child could help with ehm, she wasn't sure. She was rather baffled, the feeling of a villain remained at first with her because it was Tokyo Underground, but she had to correct herself. Elena had been there as well and that was a vigilante. Maybe she should consider them as vigilantes. "Restaurant?" She asked because well there were a lot in the area, so she was wondering if she had been there before.[break][break]
When he commented on her bag and she looked at it, the way she held it and let go. "Oh, no it's fine." She quickly looked up at him, "Thank you." It was only a small thing, it shouldn't worry her but she was fine, she quickly looked outside, wondering where they were. She did not really know this neighbourhood of Musutafu. The apartment G had was on the other side and she had no idea where Nimue lived. She should continue the conversation and get other pieces of information and thus she asked him if he liked his job and watched his mimic and expressions. She nodded, a new challenge and new experience, that's why she had been the gossip column but yea well a child had stopped that work. "You are not good at making friends?" She asked surprised, he certainly did not seem like the type who wouldn't be able to. Strange but she did not let it bother her and simply nodded. A restaurant could change every day as well and if he had to jump in every so often, hm that made sense.

Antonio liked Lady Scandal, she called him silly. That made him smile for some reason. She then spoke how she prefers not to be blindfolded, a natural reaction. She prefered to be treated nicely, as she puts it "Oh, I can treat you very nice if you want" he said as he drove, because she was a beautiful woman and she lacked a wedding ring, single and ready to mingle. Granted even rings wouldnt stop his ways. Sadly, he couldnt put his A-game to flirt with her as they were nearing their destination and he had to be professional.
She asked him some questions as they drove and he answered. She learned he worked in a restaurant. As shown how she repeated the word, Antonio nodded. He noticed her hold her bag, so he offered to put it away so she can be comfy, but for some reason she prefered to hold it. Ah a shame, she was still tense. So the two continued to talk more. Hana seemed in disbelief when he said that he's not good at making friends. He just nodded. But didnt say anything more, as he saw his Boss's mansion in the distance, so he focused on driving and then later parking the car. "Just... uno momento" he said and got out of the car. Much like a gentleman, he opened the door and offered his hand to help her up. And thus he asked "Are you ready to meet the Boss?"
Post by Hanako Hajimari on Jan 12, 2020 16:29:42 GMT -4
She laughed a little, "Oh yea?" She wasn't sure what he meant, because at this job she did not bump too often into flirty people. That was the reason why it did not cross her mind it might be that. She would just watch where they were driving to, but she was actually surprised it was in Musutafu. She was even surprised it was the rich neighbourhood, far away from the districts she knew in Musutafu she was close to the one for the school and the one for the shopping centre. She wasn't even sure where they were directly as she had paid attention to the person behind the wheel instead of the route. The now-blonde brushed her hair aside when they arrived and looked at it. There was a lot to consider, a restaurant, was that what they owned as a business? When she wanted to ask how such a social guy like him could not make friends, they already arrived and she stared at the house. Well, this gave her bad and good feelings. She wasn't sure what to say at all and thus remained seated, she had missed that he had said a moment, or something along the lines, her English had slightly improved and it looked like that. The house was not much different from hers and well that was something to talk about, she was rather curious.
When Antonio, albeit she did not know his name, opened the door for her, she had to unfasten her seatbelt and get out of the car, he offered his hand and although she liked to be an individual and independent, taking someone's hand wasn't an issue and she thus got quite elegant out of the car, "I am as ready as I can be." She said as she looked to the front door, wondering if they would go that way or some other door within the location, she simply followed.

Lady Scandal was escorted to his humble home that was his mansion. Antonio escorted her in his household and led Lady Scandal to his home office, that was where Giovanni was. Once he saw her, Giovanni got up from his chair and walked over to her and offered to shake hands with her and give her a welcome "Lady Scandal. A pleasure to finally meet you" Giovanni said as he resisted the urge to use the italian greeting which involved kissing on the cheek. He didnt want to freak her out. So instead he kissed her hand and went to introduce himself "I am the one who goes by Nero." he then gestured towards a chair "Feel free to sit down. Do you want anything to drink before we talk?"
The spainiard was in the background there if by chance he was needed to fetch anything. Besides, he liked Lady Scandal, she was beautiful. Perfect eye candy. It was something Giovanni noticed, so he asked "I hope you had a pleasant ride on your way here and I hope my assistant didnt flirt with you too much, I told him to behave" he said and hoped Lady Scandal would feel comftarble

Surely a man of this status must be more than a simple restaurant owner, though it wouldn't surprise her if it was just that. Some people knew very well how to do business, she had done her business well before and now with them holding the gym, it seemed to be going pretty well if she would say so herself. She looked around, noticed the portraits in the hallway, the home screamed bachelor at her because of those paintings but who knows, and how did he get to Japan, it was obvious that the driver wasn't of Japanese decedent but what about the man she would meet now. She watched him cautiously as they entered the office, was he busy or pretending to be busy? She shook his hand and smiled to him, all about the act but her curiosity surely sparked a few questions. "Nice to meet you too." Nero, that was it. She watched him kiss her hand and gave a smile, "A very interesting name." Which had only more influenced her question to herself if he was even Japanese, but his behaviour, as well as his body language, already convinced her that he wasn't. The thing was that she was a well-read woman but she had no idea because of her limit amount of travels where he might be from. She took the chair that he pointed at and again wondered if in a job like this it would be bad to take a drink, "Anything is fine," What would he offer her, she had not ordered something at the bar before he would arrive but as he did not come, this was the point now.
"Flirt?" She looked up surprised a little and looked shortly at Antonio, "No, not at all, it was very pleasant." What was this man's ideal? What was it that he wanted, "I was actually kind of curious why you wanted an interview." It was maybe the open way to start and whatnot, where to begin and where to end it? So much to consider, most of all her safety of course.

He smiled "Im glad you like it, miss Scandal~" he told her and then gestured for her to sit at a chair and asked her would she like a drink. She said anything was fine. Giovanni asked her if Antonio flirted with her and made her uncomftarble. She was surprised, which kind of surprised him as she looked at Antonio, who smiled sweetly to her, and then she looked back at him and said that he didnt, he was pleasant. That was a first. Giovanni then told Antonio to leave and fetch them a drink. With the spainiard leaving, Giovanni sat across her and spoke "My my. Why I wanted an interview. Who wouldnt want to be interviewed at least once in their life and especially by the famed Lady Scandal who suddenly went silent" he said as indeed, he hasnt seen anything scandalous from her in a while, he wondered what happened.
Although, he was not the one asking questions. She was, and he wondered what questions should she ask. Meanwhile as the two were starting their interview, Antonio was gonna get some glasses and red wine for the two of them. He figured that was a nice drink
Post by Hanako Hajimari on Jan 30, 2020 8:01:28 GMT -4
She pulled her blonde hair back over her shoulder, it was just the fact that it was her first in well a very long time. The thing was that she had to let it all go, the bad things. The worst things, she could do this, she would not fall of the stairs, she would not meet the Yakuza princess again, this will go fine. She had not even noticed the guy was flirting with her in the car, this was disastrous. She had to be normal, she had to be herself, sassy, smart, that's what she studied for, this was her job, her dream job. Okay, maybe that was now being a mom but sure. She looked surprised at Antonio before looking back at the man behind the desk. This was interesting and so difficult.
She gave him a sly smile, yes, silent, surprising. "Well that is a thing of course." She gave a smile before she knew that she had to up her game and looked at the red wine, shoot she still didn't drink. Well, she had bottles, it would be fine, besides she wasn't home, G was. "So, the driver spoke about your restaurant, is that how you cover the expenses to be a samaritan or are you on the other business tour?" She had spoken to others, that had been in the description of her interviews so he had nothing to fear. He would understand that it would be fine. She just hoped he would talk because she was kind of not ready for this, she should have studied instead of jumping into. That was a horrible thing to consider and she therefore simply would take a sip of the wine, hm a bit sour but that was probably the idea of red wine and she would let it be for now. She could act that way out, she would be fine.

The two were served a nice red wine to drink. And Giovanni looked at Lady Scandal, her eyes. She then asked another question. "Si. I run a restaurant. And I plan to expand. Im not here on a business tour, but I am hoping to start my own life here. And well, I hope to be a good samaritan to help the people of Musutafu. And before you ask, you may think 'why Musutafu?'. Well two reasons. It is closer to the school of UA, so more hero protection. And it is not in Tokyo, that Thundershocks zone. Before choosing a location, I dug in a little bit of research to help be decide on the best place. Your articles helped me decide too, among other news resources as well" Giovanni answered her.
Now the ball was back to her court, he wanted to see what she could ask more. From his observation, Giovanni could see she was rusty. Her articles hadnt come out in a while. He wondered if she knew what to ask. He would be a bit dissappointed if she didnt. He wondered if she had what it takes to do the mission he intented her to do. Prepared or not, he was gonna make her do it. Do or fail, Giovanni profits bothways
