"-so then Stephan took my phone and bit it! Kinda broke everything. Ended up needing to leave, went to Arcose since Amara was there. OH! Did I tell you Mumbo came back?"
She did tell her, actually. It was the first thing she told the Konatsian when they met up, and she'd said it six or seven more times since then. The conversation continued like this nearly the entire way to South City.
While Bamboo wasn't very good at collecting her thoughts, she was sure a lot better some other ways. She remembered the first time she went out with Ashi and Bloom, it was a disaster. She still liked to eat raw rice, back then. How silly she was! She was bigger and smarter now, though- cooked rice was her meal of choice nowadays.
Her outfit of choice was miles better, too. Well, it still wasn't good, but it was a step above homeless, which was a marked improvement for the homeless girl. Casual dress, a Stargoon-themed shirt, jean shorts and her usual Goon coat. She'd been holding her hair in a ponytail, too- she liked ponytails a lot. They were poofy! Bamboo liked the idea of a tail, but on your head.
The two had just arrived to South City, prowling the streets to accomplish their shared goal. Bamboo was intent on getting some payback- she'd been scammed by a sleazy salesman to go on a luxurious far-away island resort. It wasn't exactly fun- it might've been fun if you weren't Bamboo, but Bamboo's idea of a good time wasn't exactly lazing around in the sun. She wanted a full refund, but she hadn't been able to get in touch with the guy since she'd made her payments.
So, now she was back in the city where she met him, tracking down his grease-filled head. She brought Ashi along, too- Ashi was way smarter then she was at getting around cities and finding people and stuff. Cities still really disoriented the natural girl; she didn't particularly like to venture into them. She'd only really go into cities if she was going with friends, or if she intended for there to not be a city there by the time she left.
But today wasn't the day she'd smash South City... maybe someday, but not today.
"Um..." She scratched her head, looking through the busy streets. "Where do you usually find dumb salespeople in big cities? I met 'em while I was at the beach." That day, she was using her demonic energy to cast a massive umbrella over the South City beaches. It didn't actually do anything, but it really ruined the days (and tans) of anyone who wanted to use the beach.
"Buis N. Essman. That's his name!" She fished out his buisness card from her pocket. She didn't really know how to read it, so she handed over the crumpled piece of paper to Ashi. It was exceptionally clear to anyone who had a basic level of reading comprehension that it was a fake card, but Bamboo wasn't known for her reading comprehension. "Does that help?"
