Some days weren't normal, weren't like the others. The others were the interesting days, the one you deliberated on endlessly in your diary journal. But, to have interesting days, you also needed the quieter ones; the pauses, to give the weirdness its power. Sometimes you needed a quiet day, to make the next day hit.
Nashi did not know what sort of day today was going to be.
He was walking upon the beach of South City, enjoying the clear day with some fish and chips— the fish battered, the chips with chicken salt— with the lemon thrown to the seagulls and occasionally also a chip or two.
All was well. And nothing could ever change that.

It was a bright sunny day by the beach. But even in broad daylight, crime can still run amuck. Whether it be serious or petty, it's everywhere. Now happened to be one of those times as a group of adolescents wearing hoodies and masks appeared to be by a stray wall on the beach spray painting their names and goofy, sloppy drawings. "Come on guys, faster! We're gonna get caught!" A boy barked at one of his peers. Yukine, who was wearing a dark hoodie and shorts with some beaten up sneakers, shrunk in the midst of the crowd of juvenile teens. He just happened to be the youngest here. The orphan yanked his black hoodie onto his head a bit tighter, worried about getting caught. His friends at the orphanage thought this would be a great stunt! He wasn't for it...but never spoke his mind. After all, he wanted to fit in!
One boy saw his nervousness. Grinning teasingly, he leaned down at him, tugging his own mask off to express his amusement. "Oh come on twerp, don't tell me you're gonna chicken out~." Yukine bared his teeth for a moment in frustration before forcing an awkward smile. "S-Shut up man...I'm just uh...jittery, I wanna give it a go you know?" The older kid laughed and gave a quick smack to his back, nudging him forward. Yukine winced, rubbing his back as he stumbled towards the wall where a few of his 'peers' offered him some spray paint in amusement. He looked around for a bit in reluctance. After checking if the coast was clear, he raised a finger to the trigger, and struggled to press it down and was surprised with how much force was necessary. "Oh come on! You gotta shake it first!" Yukine flinched, shaking it immediately after the warning. "I-I knew that!" Pressing down with all his might, the can sputtered a bit of the paint at the wall as he struggled to make...a bunch of squiggly lines. Yukine didn't know what he wanted to draw!
Before the older kids could laugh at it, one of them who just happened to be the lookout yelled in surprise. "Shoot! It's a pig!" They ran past Yukine, knocking him to the ground as two officers ran too the scene. "G-Guys! W-Wait up!" It appeared that his so called friends ditched him. Wasting no time, the kid jumped to his feet while tugging the tip of his hood over his face and jetting it down the beach. He squeezed through narrow spaces, taking advantage of his smaller size before turning the corner. In surprise, he bumped into some blue haired dude eating some sort of platter, likely knocking the mans delicious entree to the ground. Yukine didn't stop, wasting no time to try and get away from the heat. "Shoot, shoot!"

Bloom's PL: 24,000 | 72,000 Ki Suppression: Active (Reads as 5)
Far above the chaos on the beach below, Bloom had troubles of her own. She had finally gotten enough cash scraped together to hire an electrician and plumber for her little private island cabana. The only problem was that it had taken most of her money to just hire them and buy all the materials that she needed. It was a huge pain. So in her arms, she was carrying about a ton of unmixed cement all in sacks. It was heavy, but that wasn’t the problem really. It was how she was carrying them. She had stacked them all up in a precarious tower. It was a real balancing act.
And there it went.
The whole stack toppled over. Bloom zipped around to catch a few, but she didn’t have enough arms to grab everything. Hissing with irritation, she morphed her white body around the sacks that she had managed to catch and absorbed them into her body. It would make her a little heavier than she was used to, but at least she could grab more. Diving down, she raced to catch more and more, but there were too many. They shot down to the beach below. Bloom winced. This was gonna be ugly.
One after another the sacks of cement slammed into the beach, sending up tall plumes of sand and surf. Bloom tried to slow down as she reached the ground, but found there was a problem. She was heavy. Very heavy. Bloom rocketed down face first like a bomb.
All was well, and nothing could change that. That was, until something inevitably did. And it was a lot that went wrong.
The first sign that something was wrong was the distant sound of shouting, closer to the buildings. Nashi looked over confusedly while absent-mindedly smashing some chips into his mouth, wondering what was going on. He was about to investigate, too, but the event seemed to come to him…
Some kid, not out of the ordinary in either physique or manner, ran into him. Nashi was surprised, as he was trying to figure out what the weird shout-y sounds were (chances were, he figured, they were shouts), and got knocked over! As if in slow motion Nashi watched as his fish and chips flew about in the air, tumbling, inevitably, to the ground, until… Yes! Not upside down! Nashi did a little mental cheer as the greasy cardstock fish and chip container landed right-side up, and subsequently died a little on the insides when, smash, down came a sack of cement (the container of which breaking of contact)! ”Noooooooooooo…!”Well, on the bright side, at least my day can’t get any worse, Nashi thought, incomprehensibly wrong.
But wait, he realised, where’d the concrete or cement or whatever that was come from? With a single motion, Nashi jumped back on his feet and looked up to see what was— oh kami no that’s a lot. And it was all coming at it remarkably quickly.
Activating his Cat-Like Reflexes™, Nashi brought out his Power Pole and whacked the bag of cement that was about to fall on him, which coincidentally was also the largest! With a solid strike, he’d try to knock the sack of cement elsewhere, to the side, out of harm, in the distance!
There were only two problems: one, that was not a sack of ki, but actually a Majin that happened to have skin the same colour as cement!
And two, ‘to the side, out of harm, in the distance’ apparently meant precisely where that non-descript fleeing kid was running to!
”... Double Uh-oh.”
If things went like Nashi was hoping they wouldn’t, he’d have hit that Majin straight onto that distant kid. But the reality was, it was probably going to go much worse.
Oh, and then a late sack of cement smashed onto his head when he wasn't watching.
He used a Blue Bro Block in there, which is the ‘whack projectile elsewhere’ technique. [2/3KP] i guess

The tapping of his feet were sporadic as he ran down the sidewalk beside the beach. He was panting, figuring he should of lost the heat by now. He smirked as he ran, feeling giddy. Was being a trouble maker this much fun? "Heh, t-that felt awe--HII!"BOOM! He stumbled awkwardly, nearly falling as a large scrap of cement slammed into the sand beside him. Sand skyrocketed into the air as if it were just hit with a mortar. This wasn't just a one time thing, no. It was consistently happening all around him. W...Was this how war felt like?? Yukine started running again in panic. He figured he should be in the clear up until he heard a loud wack followed by the whistles of something soaring through the wind. Yukine turned his head and his eyes widened. There was a majin soaring right towards him! "Oh shoot!"

Something cracked Bloom across her head and harsly redirected her momentum toward a kid. Ah, that was bad. As heavy as she was right now, she’d probably crush him. He had no power level to speak of. He was just a kid. With a burst of her own power, she ejected the sacks of cement in her body into the sand around them and skidded to a halt right before smashing into the kid’s face. Well, almost. Her face still smacked into his. “Mmph...sorry about that…”
Bloom pulled her face away and smiled apologetically. Bouncing back, she glanced around the beach with a hefty sigh. Whoops. This wasn’t gonna be a great time, having to track down all these cement bags. She glanced to the kid.
Not capable of sight, Nashi stumbled around blindly and in quite a panic. Out of nowhere, cement! He really should have seen this coming. But, after that, he couldn’t, mostly because he had a bunch of cement on his face. Crazy how nature does that.
Still shocked, and unable to orient himself visually (and also with that unexpected new weight on his head), Nashi began to lose balance and fall! But, no matter, all he had to do was catch himself with his Power Pole! He brought it out, oriented it, and extended it, but—
It slipped on a chip that fell out when the kid ran into him and was flung up, quickly extending into…

Yukine stumbled back, watching the Majin attempt to slow her trajectory. It helped, but clearly not much as the girl began to skid right into the boy's face! The collision caused him to jolt back, his hood falling off in the process. "Ack!" He held his face and fell onto his bum, biting his lip in pain. "Owww! S-Sheeesh!" Amidst his pain, he started to open one eye, only to see that dude he bumped into earlier flinging around a long pole! no homo"O-Oy look out lady!" The boy called out in attempts to warn her of the upcoming jab to the head she was soon to face if she hadn't moved.

She must have hit him a little harder than she had thought. Ouch. Bloom winced in sympathy, almosting missing that he was warning her about...about something. She turned her head just in time to see a powerful attack headed for her head. Her eyes widened, and the world seemed to slow down for her briefest of instants. Her power flared to life. With a sudden burst of speed, she dodged out of the way as the red pole flew past in the space where her head had been.
That was when it struck a seaside building that the two had been next to. It crumbled and collapsed towards them. Bloom resisted the urge to groan with irritation. What else could possibly go wrong today? Putting herself between the rubble and the boy, she shielded him from the worst of it. That done, she wondered if that was all that was going to go to shit today or if there was more.
Turning to glare at her attacker with the most irate expression, Bloom dusted the debris off of her body and crossed her arms. She had heard something about an apology, but that would have killed a normal person. It would have killed the boy next to her if it had gone even a few inches off to one side. Little clouds of steam puffed out of the holes on her head as she tapped her foot.
“What the hell…”
Evaded the attack with [SU1] Majin Zoom. No damage taken. KP: -1, 2/3
Needless to say, there was soon a cacophony of slinky sounds, robotic bird screeches, firework sounds and whatever sound one-foot-tall colour-shifting mouthy alien pet buggers made. And it was getting closer, too.
