The Budokai's training grounds were one of Earth's most popular grounds for budding fighters to meet and greet with their fists, or for even the more experienced to practice and test their mettle. Top-notch equipment and tech let even some of the strongest fight freely without worrying about missing their mark and hitting something important.
Carro had been installing some newly developed equipment into one of the more modernized rings. Thin pillars orbited the circular ring, complete with sturdy wires infused with just enough Katchin to make them tough enough to last a long while. His and LEO's blast surged forwards, basking the arena in light. But before it could strike the empty, yet susceptible spectator stands, an opposing wall of artificial ki flickered from between the pillars to cancel it out. "Annnnd that's that! Works like a charm." Carro brushed his hands together. Some of the Budokai managers commissioned Crop Co. to improve their arenas, and the President was happy to deliver.
A few passerbys glanced at the armored leader as they made their way through the fighting grounds. Seeing the President in the flesh wasn't common- he usually kept to the northern reaches of Earth. Carro waved back to an awestruck teen pointing at him before dusting himself off again. It couldn't hurt to stick around and meet some fans.
LEO's [UT1] LIFE LINK is active, along with her LIFEBLOOD (x16P) form! Her ki CAN BE SENSED and 'feels' nearly identical to Carro's.
The last time that either Scallio or Narissa had been to the Budokai grounds was for a tournament. Said tournament turned out to have been arranged for nefarious reasons. Which they'd only found out about AFTER the tournament had neared its collusion. Thankfully, they weren't here for anything like that today.
No, the duo had ventured to the renowned arena in search of a particular individual. One that Narissa hadn't stopped pestering Scallio about since they'd arrived on Earth months ago.
"You think it's true that he fights inside a robotic cat?" Narissa asked with barely contained excitement in her voice.
Scallio shrugged his shoulders, "I don't know," he sounded disinterested, "but anything's possible." he said with a groan.
The heran rolled her eyes, skipping ahead of Scallio and stepping in front of him to block his path. "You know, you could at least sound more excited."
"It's that obvious huh?"
"Very." she said with another roll of her eyes.
"Yeah, well, I'm not exactly thrilled to listen to you fangirl. Especially over some dude with a robotic cat for a pet."
Narissa gasped mockingly and then giggled, "Oh my Kami, are you jealous?"
Scallio's brow furrowed, "What, no. Why in the world would I be jealous?"
"You are!" Narissa's giggling turned into full-blown laughter that caused Scallio to push past her and continue walking. Once she'd regained her composure she moved to catch up with him. "Don't get your tail all twisted. I just want to talk shop with the guy." she said reassuringly, but Scallio had clearly stopped listening. "Oh whatever, think what you want." she waved her hand at him, and picked up her pace.
The pair had arrived just as Carro had begun testing out his upgrades to the arena. They watched, Scallio with mild disinterest and Narissa with awestruck fascination, at the success of his work. "Awesome!" she shouted, rushing towards Carro with a smile plastered on her face. "You're Carro Hofferson right? Stupid question, of course, you are I mean with armor like that who else are you going to be? Not to mention that I already knew that you were going to be here." she spoke quickly and without pause that it may have been difficult to fully understand her.
"Don't forget to breath Narissa." Scallio muttered as he approached, arms folded against his chest.
"Oh, right." she took a deep breath, "Hi, pleasure to meet you! Do you have a spare second to talk?" her smile widened and her eager eyes pleaded with Carro to say yes.
