OOC: Ann has given me control over Jin. He’s told me to put him to good use, so I will.
@Natsu and Gajeel,
The expressionless face of Hakumen looks down on the two idiotic dragonslayers.
Hakumen: I will be looking for improvements in both of your behaviors.
The White Knight walks past the two of them and begins heading towards the elevators with everyone else. However, when he gets in the elevator he presses the button corresponding to the observation deck.
Flandre yawns while riding on Juvia’s shoulders.
I’m tired… Can we go to bed now, momma?
She sort of slumps over on Juvia, scooting down so that she is in more of a piggyback ride position. Her head is right next to Juvia’s now.
Ragna also puts the plates for him and Nu on the cart, sending them to the kitchen.
Ragna: I actually agree with the kid. We should get some rest.
he looks at Nu who is close to him.
Ragna: C’mon. You can stay with me tonight…
Nu sorta blushes at Ragna.
Nu: Okay… Ragna..
She leans on him happily as he leads her out of the kitchen and to the elevator…
But all is not right when the two get in the hallway. Ragna thought that there was a familiar presence on the ship, but he paid no mind to it until now.
The Grim Reaper scowls, putting a hand on the end of Blood Scythe.
Ragna: Damn it, not him too…
???: Hello, brother…
A good-looking and slender young man with short, stylish blond hair and green eyes comes out of an adjacent room in the hallway. He wears the NOL major uniform with a black turtleneck and leggings under a white Japanese-style garment, white gloves, military boots, and a “jolting sapphire” colored jacket with a red lining and very long, detached sleeves. The Elite Praetorian Guard is not holding his sword. It doesn’t seem to be seen anywhere right now.
Jin Kisaragi… Ragna the Bloodedge’s brother… The Hero of Ikaruga and the bearer of the Power of Order. He has been secretly training in the woods near the guild hall, honing his skills so that he could keep up with his brother. He is as strong as Ragna is, and has learned a few more techniques of his own.
The Grim Reaper scowls at Jin.
Ragna: What the hell are you doing here still? I thought the NOL would’ve taught you better than to stow away on a ship.
Jin just shakes his head in disapproval at Ragna.
Jin: Well, brother… The one you call “Meredith” broke Yukianesa’s influence.
Ragna actually looks shocked at this.
Ragna: But… How? How did she break the damn thing’s influence?
Jin just smirks at Ragna.
Jin: How am I supposed to know? I was in pain the whole time… Hehe.
He doesn’t seem to be displaying any murderous intent towards anyone here, actually. Not even his brother…
Ragna: So why are you here anyways? Suddenly get a change of mind that you wanted to help, bastard?
He keeps his eyes on Jin, ready to strike at any moment.
Jin: I’ve had a change of heart, dearest brother.
He holds out a hand for a hand shake.
Jin: From what I’ve heard, this “Balloon Master” person is a big threat on a galactic level… You’ll need all the help you can get. What do you say?
Ragna looks at the hand before hesitantly extending his own and shaking hands with his brother.
Ragna: Look, Jin… The past doesn’t heal easily.
He keeps his eyes locked on Jin.
Jin: I never thought I’d see the day where brother and I would be on the same team…
He laughs a bit.
