Her bike had been wrecked a few days ago by petty punks looking for revenge from a beat down she had supplied to them. Now she was stuck hoofing it to school on foot until she could get a new one.
On her way to school this morning, she interrupted a bunch of hoodlums trying to rob an old lady. 'How cliché can you get,' she had thought. After hurriedly making sure the punks learned their lesson and the old lady was alright, she sprinted the rest of the distance to make it to school in time.

The rich snob even had the nerve to complain to her for being late for their "destined fight"! 'Crazy girl never gets any sense knocked into her, no matter how many beat downs I dish out!' she noted.

Neasa sat in her captain's chair on the main deck of the Graceful Beauty, lost in thought. It had been a day since the failed hunt for the ninja known as Sanae, a fact that had been driving her crazy. 'It has been almost a year since I last performed a less than satisfactory hunt ' she reflected moodily as she munched on a cracker.
Crackers had always been a comfort food for the girl for as long as she could remember, so it was with much annoyance that she realized the box she held was emptied out as she reached in for another. "Butty, get me another box of crackers!" she called out, knowing her faithful butler Shibari-kun would be within earshot.
"Ah! Sorry mistress, but that was the last box!" Butty woefully reported.
"Well, that's just great." Neasa muttered as she stood up and stretched. "It'll be awhile before I can see the professor about those upgrades anyway " She paused to grab her purple overcoat, slipping it on. "We might as well go into town for a bit and r

Yuki stood alert, playing the role silent observer she was meant to be. Today, however, that role would prove to be a touch more hands-on than usual.
The aloof girl was joined by two of her companions; the meek and doe-eyed Mikuru and the boisterous bundle of energy that was Haruhi. Together, they had gathered at an outdoor café. That in itself wasn’t unusual; at least in this small circle. Neither were the bunny girl outfits – tight, form fitting black and red corsets with dark pantyhose, wrist cuffs, heels, cottontails and fake bunny ears complimenting it - that the brunette and auburn-haired girls sported. The biggest difference, this time, was that the interface found herself adorned in matching attire as well. The corset, heels and ears were white; a fitting match for her creamy pale skin, Haruhi had proclaimed earlier that day.

Asuka had decided to spend this beautiful Sunday as any productive girl her age should; going on a shopping spree! Dragging a reluctant Hikari with her, the two had darted from store to store, amassing a nice collection of new clothing.
While fun, the day had also proven to be hotter than usual. Especially when she had opted to wear pantyhose! After she waved her friend goodbye, skin glistening with subtle beads of sweat over her body, all Asuka could think of doing now was kicking back and relaxing.
"Hey Misato!" she called, placing the bags in her hands down, "I'm back!"
Not one to wait for a response, she slipped off her stuffy red heels and made her way into the apartment proper, eager to deposit her new collection of clothing into her bedroom. On her way there she found herself pausing and doing a double take when she realized they had an unexpected guest.

Neasa had wasted no time in barging right into Professor Humboldt's home after the Rebel-kun incident, all but demanding that he aid her immediately. Words were exchanged and eventually the professor relented, never being one to turn down a request from the daughter of his dear friends.
Due to time constraints, he had only managed to reinforce two of her Capture Squads. Each one was outfitted with enhanced shock plates to better resist impacts and protect their core's integrity.

For the first time in a long while, the Loyan family had gathered together to embark on a vacation. Queen Sara had been quite adamant about visiting the warm beaches of Darbor's shores, going out of her way to drag her husband King Antonio away from his busy schedule to do so.
Naturally, their two daughters, Nadia and Elvina had tagged along, both sharing their mother's excitement in getting a chance to kick back and relax under the sun. The Royal Guards Rui, Rika and Ruki and maid Marie rounded out the trope.
Unfortunately, by the time they got there the weather had proven to be cooler than they had expected. Rather than spending much time on the beach itself, they instead opted to relax within their private resort some distance away.
Despite the setback, the day passed by smoothly, the group still enjoying their change in location. All except one, who, much to her surprise, found herself thinking

“Yes?” Reiko asked, coming to a halt to address the pair. Though her body tensed slightly, she tried her best to be all smiles.
Haruhi glanced at Reiko’s slightly exposed midriff, noting the slightly toned abs. Her eyes drifted to her equally toned arms, then darted down to her legs. Finally, Haruhi’s gaze settled on Reiko’s strained smile.
“Well, I was going to ask you if you’ve seen anything suspicious, but I’d say that you’re plenty suspicious!” Haruhi accused, pointing a finger up at Reiko’s face. If Haruhi seemed intimidated by her height and build, she wasn’t showing it. Mikuru, on the other hand, looked utterly terrified. “S-Suzumiya, you can’t say things like that to someone!” she cried out. Her fidgeting body, huddled nervously behind Haruhi, spoke volumes to Reiko – the girl was terrified.

There hadn't been much to do lately, with no new bounties posted since her last catch had been brought in, nor any promising leads to new heists to pull off on the sly. As much as she enjoyed having time to kick back and relax, she was beginning to get quite restless.

A Wish For Freedom
I, a child birthed in chains
Raised in a cage
But on this day- they will break
I was taught self-hatred
Learning that the differences were divided
Among the people who are considered “civilized “
Forcefully combining my fear and envy
As I was raised in the middle of this society
My power and pride were deprived of me
I was only an empty vessel
Believing that all promises were fabled
But once upon a calm- I witnessed hope's revival
Wings sprout from my tongue / Words from my soul are sung
A new voice's journey has begun / Let the era of silence be undone
Obtaining peace of mind / Experiencing freedom of heart
Allowing the colors to shine / The future will blind the scars
I had to fight the system; I had to stop the cycle
It was either my downfall or survival
So I reversed this downward spiral

Treading along a path of healing
Within an aura of rejuvenation
Restore the strongest force of life
Renew these weakening limits of mine
Devotion has no means to an end
There is only hope and strength to be lent
Just like the void called the sky
Even the clouds don't hinder sight
A storm could be brewing
And lightning could be striking
But there is no fear dwelling
Only a calm, tranquil feeling
A rarity itself
An enigma that stands out
A peace that transcends
An energy that ascends
A strong person who is still only human
An outcome of living within the moment
Like a stunning sunrise
Shunning out an ominous evening night
Piercing through that unending blanket of darkness
To see the light of day again, it tells me that I've made it
The sun rays hit and land
And starts to melt the doubt from my hands
The will to endure
The wisdom to acquire
There are no word

That which you still kept
So I don't want to sound dishonest, but out of us, you are the strongest
You make sure to protect
To you, everyone, and everything is dearest
None left to neglect
But with all of that, you take on those heavy burdens
And try your best
Calling out your name into the nothingness
Forgetting about the peace you bestowed upon me

Something deep within me / Is longing for relief
A haunting aura around me / Reminding me of the grief
Scratching at the core of my soul / Hope is swallowed by a black hole
Locked in the center of my heart / All that is left is the traumatized part
Laugh, smile, blink, and focus. You just need to act as normal as possible.
You cannot let this pain get the best of you. Don't do anything irresponsible.
The damage you do to yourself also effects everyone else, so don't let it become irreversible.
You're being too hard on yourself, no one is perfect in life, you're only human, you're not invincible!
Shock waves of guilt enter my system / While a deathly peace is in the distance
And aftershocks of regret strike me down / I can't show that I'm hurt when they're around
Tremors of anxiety / Infest my entire body
