Noctis pulled his headphones over his ears, his hand reached up to the archaic buttons of his beat-up mp3 player that hung around his neck on a lanyard. Noctis’ lifted up the ancient device and peered into the mp3 players mini LCD screen to read the old school digital font indicating which song was playing. His thumb clicked the skip button until a melody he was satisfied with began to play. He then put on a blue windbreaker over his white V-neck T-shirt. Noctis then stopped at his apartment shoebox where his two favorite shoes sat there waiting.
“Do I slip on the heelys to escape the feelies?” Noctis chuckled to himself as he picked up a pair of black and white hightops with wheels attached to the soles.
“Or do I skater boy, see ya later boy?” Noctis sighed as he put the shoes down and looked up to his beat-up skateboard with a scratched up Nyan Cat graphic, the board was also decorated with all sorts of miscellaneous stickers of anime waifus and various sorts of dead memes. Pausing for a second, thinking over his options Noctis finally decided to take his skateboard out that day. He put on his worn-out shoes he dedicated for skating. He then patted his faded black jeans to check to see if his wallet and cellphone were there, and sure enough, the items were in their proper place. Noctis then unclipped his messenger back to check to see if the rest of his stuff was in his bag. Once satisfied Noctis grabbed his skateboard and headed out from his tiny home. After locking the door and walking down the steps. Noctis broke into a running pace letting his skateboard drag onto the ground before hopping on it when he finally reached optimal speed.
Noctis cruised down on the street kicking off his board to propel him when he began to lose his desired speed. Eventually, Noctis got to the main road where he noticed a small truck making its way down the street. Noctis then leaned to one side causing his board to change its path slightly to align Noctis side by side with the truck. Before the truck could pass Noctis, he grabbed onto the back of the small truck allowing himself to be pulled by the vehicle. Noctis positioned himself in the driver’s blind spot, thus effectively allowing Noctis to hitch a free ride with the passing vehicle.
Relaxing Lofibeats played in Noctis’ headphones as he would occasionally switch to other vehicles that are headed to his desired direction. This means of transportation was most definitely not safe, but Noctis navigated the roads without issues, after all, this was something he did with his old friend down in the bustling streets of San Francisco when he was younger.
“I guess I’ll head to the arcade or something…” Mutter Noctis to himself as he approached his direction, wondering if he would meet someone along the way. With that said Noctis let go of the current vehicle he was mooching momentum off of. Noctis had planned to slow down and make a quick stop to take a break. However, a car door suddenly opened forcing Noctis to take evasive maneuvers. This caused Noctis to take a sharp turn into a crowd of people.
"AH SHIT... GET OUT OF THE WAY!!!" Noctis hollered desperately in hopes to warn the crowd before he could crash into someone.

She hated today, they had a meeting about something that was probably related to the school and she should inform Sonya about it, but she had been kicked out of the meeting. So her influence was too low still, she was so mad, she should get a position but she knew after six months that was still impossible and she needed to be patient. They would not have an ambassador everywhere and that made sense but what made her even angrier was that she was sent to go fetch coffee and sandwiches or other forms of lunch and when they told her that, the steam had almost literally come out of her ears. But like a good little actress, she had just smiled and said she would do so. But that did not mean that she would not take her sweet, sweet time by staying outside. Screw them. She was sick of everything here but there was no way to go home. She had her Bluetooth earpiece in her left ear and was having a phone call with someone important enough to her to talk to when she had nothing much to do. She missed the honking and the yells because honestly, Narcissa did not care.
She did not pay attention to much, she had a paper bag in her left hand, talked in English to the person on the other side of the phone and just had someone jump in front of her, that's when the four coffee fell over her white blouse and she dropped the cup holder with the cups simply, the rest of the liquid fell on the pavement and she stared at it. Someone from the store came running to her to clean up and offer her napkins, she stared angrily at everyone around her, it was like Tokyo held its breath. She was enraged and she had no clean clothes at the office and she did not even belong here, this wasn't her job. She felt angry and humiliated and she stared at everyone one by one, "And why is no one doing something?" Move on, go away, she was so angry. She did not want them all to look at her the small idiots. And who was to blame for this issue, her eyes looked more over the crowd, she had to be damn lucky that it did not seep into the top she was wearing under her white blouse as she took off the white blouse now that she had her hands empty and she felt more humiliated by the minute.

Noctis swerved just ion the nick of time, avoiding a young woman carrying coffee. His speed was too great and there was no way to slow down his momentum and in order to minimize anyone getting hurt he only had one option. Noctis pivoted his body to change his direction towards a table that was not occupied by any customers. With a violent crash, Noctis cut off his speed with a violent stop. He hit the force of the table so hard the table flipped knocking over the chairs near it. Noctis slammed into the ground head first skidding for a few feet rolling a few times until he stopped. He laid on the ground for a second immediately getting up to look around to see if anyone was hurt. He quickly rushed up into the crowd asking if everyone was okay. He then noticed the woman who he almost crashed into, he saw the spilled coffee all over the blouse the woman held in her hands.
"Holy shit! I am so sorry! Crap is that coffee? Was it hot? Are you hurt!" Noctis looked at the woman with a worried look. He realized that he was being rude and immediately bowed down in order to show his sincere apology for his blunder. "I-I'm sorry!" With Noctis' rush to check to see anyone was injured he failed to assess his own injuries. As soon as he lifted his head to make eye contact with the young woman he felt a warm liquid trickle down his face. At first, he assumed it was sweat until he glanced down to the ground where drops of red blood stained the ground where it had fallen. Noctis then realized that he had a large gash on the side of his head. However, he ignored it and brought his attention to the woman. Thankfully the coffee didn't seem to be hot, nor was the young woman hurt. Noctis looked around and with a slight sigh of relief, no one else seemed to be hurt.
"Please allow me to buy you coffee and lunch as an apology! I-I'll even pay to have your blouse clean....I-I'm sorry mam!" Noctis sputtered his words nervously still jittery from the adrenaline rush that was quickly fading away leaving only his sore body and wounds aching. Noctis hoped that the lady would be kind enough to take his apology, even if she would not he was prepared to be yelled at for his idiocy.
"Fuck... I'm such an Idiot, nearly ran over such a pretty lady too...." Noctis cursed himself but this time in English, his words would be soft enough not to be heard by the crowd, but if the woman was paying attention she might have heard what Noctis had said in English. It was an odd sight, at a passing glance people would have assumed it was just some punk kid causing trouble. Noctis was quite average in height and lanky in the build so often people would assume that he was from the age of 16-18 years old. Even so, he wasn't some child that would just irresponsibly apologize and walk away. Noctis was a man that wanted to sincerely make it up to this woman. He looked at the woman with his space gray eyes, his expression clearly showing regret and humility.

She glared daggers at everyone, how could she go to work like this? Why were people staring at her like she was an idiot, who expected a skateboarder on the freaking pavement with that speed? She had dropped the rest of the cups and quickly worked to unbutton her white blouse and shake it off together with her coat, well at least her coat seemed to do fine. She did not want it to soak in the top she was wearing underneath it. She looked up to the person that came to her, the guy who had made this whole accident happen, hmm, such a daring action to come and talk to her. "Yes, it's coffee and yes it is hot." She said and she folded her blouse up and put her coat back on, "I would say I am rather lucky it didn't touch my skin." Yes a few specks here and there of the coffee drops on her hands but she would survive that. She shrugged her coat back on, she had no time for stupid questions, it was just not burning her and that was fine, she plucked on her top to see if it was too wet, she looked like a stupid kid that could not hold her coffee while he was the stupid kid! Though he apologized it went for her like into one ear and out the other, she was like the coffee herself, so angry. Though it was not really clear on her face, apart from her low eyebrows, it was the sarcasm in her voice and the stoic face.
She looked up though when this person seemed to have the proper manners, wait? Kids did not have proper manners and could definitely not buy or pay for so much. "That would be pleas- You are bleeding?" She just reminded her on time that she had a mask, not a literal one this time, but she had to play the nice ambassador of Barbados and that meant she had to do her very best, besides the wound on his head looked quite bad. Now headwounds did bleed a lot, she knew that but still. She took the napkin from the bag on the ground and extended her hand a bit hesitant, she wasn't sure if she should do that, but you probably had to put pressure on the wound so it would stop bleeding.
She would worry about that for now, she was in no hurry to go back to the office looking like a small child that could not even hold on to cups of coffee, so let's stay here. She blinked in surprise when she heard him mutter in English and she pumped up her chest (a sort of automatic reaction to the vain woman who liked compliments) and a small smile appeared on her lips, "Well thanks."

Noctis was not too worried about the injury that he sustained, after wall if he wanted to he could simply activate his quirk when no one was looking and have the cut heal perfectly in a matter of minutes. Besides, Noctis' was more or less used to getting banged up during his nightly vigilante crime raids. "Yeah it's nothing, I'll be fine haha... wait... you understand English..." Noctis went his normal skin tone, to pale, to beet red. Clearly embarrassed at his slip up he kicked himself mentally for his blunder. due to his nervous wrecked stage he began spurting in English.
"I-I'm gl-glad you're not hurt. Y-yeah...erm s-so about that c-coffee? D-do you have a place in mind?" Noctis inquired as he cleared his throat clearly trying to maintain his cool under the gaze of such an attractive young woman. When Narcissa extended her hand to help stop the bleeding, all of Noctis' efforts to calm himself down was yeeted out the window. Rendering him a blushing seething mess once more. "T-thanks... Ll-like I said, I'll be fine... hahaha I'm used to falling over and stuff with all the skating I do." Noctis scratched the back of his head, giving Narcissa a surprisingly charming smile. He couldn't maintain eye contact for too long due to his embarrassment ad often would avert his space gray eyes by glancing down to his sneakers. He was like a small nervous puppy who knew he had done something wrong and was unsure how to fix it.

She had just thanked the boy for his compliment in English and before that, she had asked him about his cut and got one of the napkins to try to stop it. She gave him a smile as he realized what she just said and look at him with a smug smile on her face, "That shouldn't be too surprised, we are quite a modern country." But yea well, there were enough who had probably some difficulties with the language. She was trying her very best to not laugh at the switching of the colour of his skin. She giggled though in the end when he started to stutter and continued in English. Well, lucky for Narcissa, she was still not that fluently with her Japanese, depending on the topics though, she was very good at the chatting about coffee but mostly political topics were the easiest.
He turned red again when she patted the napkin against him, "Mhm, well you should find a way to brake easily." She said again with a smug expression on her face. "I think this place here has good coffee." And she pointed with her free hand over her shoulder. But she could not help but giggle a little later considering she was maybe a little mean to him, he had offered to buy her coffee, she would be fine. Screw those old men in there offices waiting for her, the not lunch lady. Her eyes turned back to his face and expression and lowered the napkin, she couldn't help but blush a little when his charming smile appeared, okay she had not expected that, that was simply it. "I-I ehm, will throw this away." She took the cups from the ground and the napkin and dumped it all in the trash can nearby. "Maybe they have a bandaid inside? It might help to stop the bleeding? You probably know best." She said a bit silly, this was ridiculous, she was just pretty sure of herself considering his compliment, although he had ruined her day, he also made it a little brighter.
Noctis had glanced down and was unable to notice Narcissa blush. "Yeah... honestly if you don't mind we can speak English, I honestly prefer it over Japanese" Noctis chuckled as he looked back up to Narcissa as he spoke in English. "Ya know I probably should learn how to stop safely instead of using strangers and the cement as an emergency brake." Noctis chuckled he then raised his eyebrows and gave Narcissa a grin. "But, you know...because if I was so good at stopping, I wouldn't have fallen for you." Noctis gave Narcissa a dorky smile as he shot her akimbo finger guns at his super cheesy pickup line. Noctis tried to play it cool as the tips of ears turned a light shade of pink, but was able to keep his cool somewhat. however, in reality, Noctis mentally face palming himself. DUDE?!! What the hell are you thinking? Fallen for you?! ARE YOU STUPID?! Was what Noctis thought to himself. "haha j-just kidding? sorry" Noctis caved in as his voice cracked a little due to his nervousness. He cleared his throat and glanced up at the coffee shop, in fact, it was a shop he frequented quite often. "Y-yeah this place has great coffee and if you're a tea person as well they've got good tea too." Noctis quickly changed the subject trying to cover up his embarrassment as well.
As Narcissa went to throw out the cups and tissues, Noctis excused himself for a second, and quickly put the table and chair he knocked over back to its place. He grabbed his skateboard and opened the door for Narcissa and followed in as soon as she would enter. "By the way... where are my manners? My name's Noctis Sieglinde, no need to call me by my last name...after all, in the west, we usually address one another by our firsts names...Uhm what's your name? T-that is if you don't mind me asking..." Noctis asked as he looked up at the menu trying to keep his voice steady. He noticed an employee not too far, he waved and the employee came over. "Do you guys happen to have any bandaids or something?" Noctis asked politely in Japanese as he pointed at his wound, the employee nodded and returned with a large bandaid just before Noctis and Narcissa got up to the cashier. "Thanks!" Noctis smiled as he graciously took the bandaid from the employee, he then turned to the cashier. "I'll be paying for both our drinks," Noctis told the cashier as he gestured at his beautiful young lady next to him.
