I no longer wish to live...

"Could I get one of these? One of these? Maybe this one? Which do you think I should get?"

"I like the red one... I wanna have one like that. Can I?"

"No."

"I like maybe this darker one...It's almost purple. Purple or black, it's hard to tell like this. Could I get it?"

"No."

"Well... Ooh, OOH, this! This is so perfect, if we can get this and then that red pair of sandals I-"

"No," said Crimson in thunderous emphasis, eyes looking rather tired or bored, yet embers of frustration clearly visible. "We came here for clothes, just clothes."

"These are clothes," corrected the older of his two people-he-has-to-watch-over-now-that-he-found-them, the twelve or young teenage-looking girl that was thrown at him to begin with, motioning to the coloured stocking-nylon things Crimson didn't understand in question. Crimson narrowed his eyes.

"I meant things like shirts, pants, long skirts, maybe a hat; something to keep you from the elements," Crimson replied, to which the girl raised her eyebrows and tilted her head in that snotty pre-teenage way he loathed and despised to the core of his very being.

"What, doesn't your whole organization have the slightest bit of money?" She had actually made that sound convincingly innocent.

"...That's not what we spend money on," Crimson replied. He was in a market area, seated on a bench near a large display of unneseccary women's clothing, staring at both it, the girl, and the younger girl he was alsforced to protect who seemed to have taken an interest in the clothes as well, to his disgruntled-ness. "We spend money on equipment, kid, not... leggings."

"They're stockings."

"Oh."

"...There should be axes," the littler girl said, her attention moving from the clothes to Crimson now, tugging at a buckle on his leg. "I want an axe..."

"Hmm... Maybe I'll get one too," the older girl said thoughtfully. Crimson's head sank slowly.

Oh sweet mercy...

(OOC: Though shall have to summon him...)

Lucifer was at the moment trying unsuccessfully to wrestly the prying hands of a young girl off him.
Several, young girls.

"Owww... N-Neku that hurts! Please stop that- OW! Miuri!" He scolded the young girl with bright pink hair done up in pigtails, she simply giggled in response.
"Cifer... Let's play? Okey dey?" Neku, a small cat like girl with long raven black hair asked grinning mischieviously.
"No fair!" Miuri pouted. "I had him first!"
"NUH UH!" Another cat girl, this one with silver streaks in her shoulder length cropped black hair said furiously, her ears twitching as she pouted. "I had him first!"
"But it's my turn!" A (somewhat) male voice broke in as a boy wearing only shorts and a very short vest with dark brown hair broke in by leaping onto Lucifer's back.

At that moment Lucifer wished dearly, OH SO dearly to be anywhere but here.
Hell had a nice ring to it.
He also wished a heavy curse on his siblings' heads.

"Is there a ballgown shop around here?" the older asked, glancing to Crimson inquiringly. Crimson blinked.

"No... Well, I don't know, but I'm not getting you one," he replied.

"Why not?"

"What's the point? What do you need a ballgown for?"

"We had to leave ours behind. Sir Cratyn got us some," she explained. The younger one nodded.

Crimson flinched. "Well guess what? Sir Cratyn's dead. Coincidence? He could've used that money on just a couple more bodyguards, and then maybe things would have turned out differently for him."

The two stared at him like he was their rapist uncle. The younger one sniffed. After a moment, Crimson sighed. He had to give a bit of ground.

"...I'll get you one, but only under a hundred-"

Crying and yelling ensued. Crimson sweatdropped, his honed Assassin mind quickly trying to come up with a solution to this predicament.

As for all tight spots in all anime or anime-themed media, the solution came as follows: Summon something.

Now, what to summon...

Mia? ...Wouldn't exactly improve the situation.
...The boy!

Taking the token of friendship given to him from around his neck, Crimson held the object and was immediately surrounded in an impressive array of lights. The girls paused in their protests as he did this, and throwing the object into the air, he thrusted his palm at it as it fell, reciting the words...

"I summon thee... Lucifer!"
2nd-Jan-2007 11:32 pm (UTC) - Lucifer and Nuke
Lucifer was in the midst of freeing his hair from Nuke who had him in a headchoke, when he blinked, feeling a tiny pull on his soul from another spot.
"Huh?" Nuke blinked as small sparkles of black light appeared around the two, before slowly materializing into black feathers.

And then both were picked up into the air, hovered there for a moment before...

>> POP! <<

They landed with a thud in front of Crimson. Lucifer, blue faced and still choking gasped as Nuke looked around curiously.
"Wow! That was cool!"
"Choking... need air..." He gasped.
2nd-Jan-2007 11:54 pm (UTC) - Crimson & Not-So-Friends
The girls stared for a few moments, blinking. Crimson sighed in relief. It worked...

Hey wait a minute... "Oh, who's the friend, pal?"

"Who are they...?" the younger asked, shifting back a little.

"Oh, them? My summon... um, summons," he said, a little distracted in corcern of Lucifer's bluing face.
3rd-Jan-2007 12:00 am (UTC) - Lucifer and Nuke
Lucifer finally snarled and flared a pair of shimmering ebony black wings which forced the cat off with a cry.

Landing on his sandled feet, Nuke pouted.
"You're mean." He muttered, but brightened as he turned to the others.

"Hiya! I'm Nuke! I have 23 siblings, a mom and a dad!" He said his tail flicking merrily behind him. Lucifer gasped a few more minutes, before he got to his feet, his wings twitching with irritation.
"S-sorry..." He muttered as he coughed. "You caught me... in the middle of babysitting. Uhm... is everything alright?" He asked glancing at the assassin and senseing for danger.

Funnily enough it seemed to be coming mostly from Crimson... the bad waves.
3rd-Jan-2007 12:14 am (UTC) - Crimson & etc
"Oh, good, you do babysit," Crimson said, a wave of relief washing over him. "I'd just like you to help take care of these two here, in the least money-squandering way as possible." He patted the two girls' heads, who still looked at Lucifer and Nuke in a sort of stunned curiosity. "See, um, a couple of people around their age might be able to show the young ladies a better time than I could myself, so I think it'd be better to just leave you to them for a little while and meet up again later today... sometime."

Maybe.
3rd-Jan-2007 06:10 am (UTC) - Lucifer and Nuke
Lucifer gave a disheartened face, his expression resigned.
It figured, good for nothing but babysitting in Exile, why would here be different?

Nuke glanced at Lucifer, and frowned for a moment, before smiling.

Suddenly latching onto Crimson with startling speed one would not expect of him, he grinned.

"You're not goin' anywhere!"
3rd-Jan-2007 07:14 am (UTC) - Crimson & Enemies
Crimson paused, flinching. He looked down at the little one cautiously.

"...And just why is that?" he asked. "I'm a little busy, you know. And that's a rather pointy outfit you just clung yourself to."

The younger girl, about eight, finally seemed to decide what to focus her curiosity on. That being Nuke. She walked to the side of Crimson to get a better view of the boy, just staring quietly.
4th-Jan-2007 02:48 am (UTC) - Lucifer and Nuke
Lucifer blinked, curious as to why Nuke was latching onto a newcomer so quickly, normally the young cat was prone to let newcomers be just that, people who came and went.

"Because!" He said grinning, the smile turning sly. "I got a special power, that'll let me follow you annnnywheeerreee..." He trailed off giggling in a mysterious manner.

It wasn't until he noticed the young girl that he smiled and flicked his tail at her in the manner of a wave.
"Hello!"
4th-Jan-2007 05:45 am (UTC) - Crimson
"Is that so..." muttered Crimson, shaking his leg a bit in hopes to get the little creature off. "Well, I've got a special power that can kick you over the nearest building if you don't let go..."

The girl waved back with her hand, a bit sheepishly. "Hello um, Nuke. I'm Serape (Seh-ra-pay)..."
5th-Jan-2007 08:21 pm (UTC) - Lucifer and Nuke
Lucifer winced.
"Uhm... please... don't... if he starts crying... his sisters are likely going to follow him through their abilities and..." He trailed off, the possibility of such a situation all too terrifying.

Nuke however was heedless. "Okay." He promptly slid off, then hopped onto Crimson's back giggling.
"Didn't say I could get back on!" He cried grinning cheerfully as he glanced at the girl.
"Oh, hello! What a cool name!" He called smiling at her. "You're very pretty, do you have a last name?" He asked grinning, his ears twitching with merriment.
10th-Jan-2007 04:57 am (UTC) - Crimson and Serape, apparently
"Sisters, huh..." he muttered. Crimson silently agreed it was a good idea not to bother the cat-child. More little girls would definitely not add any good to the situation. "All right, um... So, when or how does he let go?"

"Oh, thank you..." Serape muttered back, smiling a bit. "Of course I have a last name, but you haven't said yours. Don't you have one?"

The elder girl finally cleared her throat, beginning toward Lucifer curiously.

"So's there anything you have planned this afternoon?" she asked, tilting her head and letting reddish-blonde locks fall from the side. "Maybe you can help find a dress, Mr. Lucifer-kun."

Crimson paused, glancing at the supposed eleven year-old. Sounded like she was still after invisible money...
16th-Jan-2007 11:33 pm (UTC) - Lucifer and Nuke
Lucifer smiled nervously.
"He lets go when he's found something else to cling to, I'm afraid." He said a bit sheepishly.

Nuke grinned, he decided he liked this girl a little.
"I'm Nuke, I belong to Noko's clan!" He said cheerfully. Glancing at the elder his tail twitched from the strange vibes he was getting from her.

"Dresses? Icky, hard things to move around in, you're better off in a skirt or maybe shorts, like me!" He said grinning chipperly, tail flicking to and fro.
10th-Feb-2007 09:54 pm (UTC) - Crimson, Serape, and the other girl. o-o
"So Nuke Noko?" Serape asked, smiling a bit. "That's a stupid name..." And she walked over to Nuke, taking his ear and tugging it a bit. "Neat..."

"Well, I like dresses..." muttered the elder, glancing to Nuke for a moment before going back to Lucifer. "So...? You seem really nice. I'd like to talk to you more while we shop..."

Crimson glanced off, sighing once. "Well, this situation's really improved." The sarcasm wasn't blatant, but it was definitely there.
24th-Apr-2007 12:48 am (UTC) - Lucifer and Nuke
Nuke gave a pout as his tail came up in an agitated manner.
"It's not a stupid name, besides, my name isn't Nuke Noko, and stop pulling my ears!" He muttered sounding definitively less friendly.

Lucifer flushed slightly as he stiffened.
"W-well.... okay..." He said shyly glancing at her a little bit shyly.

He winced when he heard Crimson's obvious sarcasm and felt he should make up for it, so he sighed and bowed.

"I'm sorry... I... do make things a bit worse don't I?" He asked miserably.
