An Awkward Fancy Date [Private/Eros Event]

The economic and entertainment epicenter of Cloud. It is a host to many clubs, restaurants, theaters, hotels, couture shops, specialty stores, and much more. The Dawnbringer Plaza bustles with life as Cloud's village square while the outskirts thrive on the shady and sordid dealings of the more discreet customer. Caveat emptor.

An Awkward Fancy Date [Private/Eros Event]

Thu Feb 07, 2019 11:53 pm

"Hello, everyone and welcome back to Blind Dates! This time, we will be following some young lovebirds on their first date in a fancy restaurant! How will this end up for this potential couple? Will it be smooth sailing for both of them or will they abandon ship? Let's find out!"

He didn't know what to feel about today. He has no mission today, so he has some free time today. However, he didn't expect that his free time involved him waiting in front of a fancy restaurant located in Susukino District while wearing a casual blue jacket, white shirt, denim blue pants, and purple boots. It didn't make him feel better as he could see a film crew was behind him.

Long story short, there was a new TV show coming to Kumogakure called "Blind Ninja Dates" and as the title stated, it involved some shinobi getting involved in blind dates. He was not interested in reality shows, so he tried to ignore that strange trend despite it was almost Valentine's Day. However, he couldn't ignore it for long when he learned that his sister signed him up to the show without his knowledge. And what's worst was that Yuri was involved in the plot just by pretending to be him. Her reason behind it was to give him a date for the day of love, but even he knew that this was a bit forceful just to take care of his well being.

He would scold both of them about it, but he knew he can't cancel his participation now. Just doing so may cause some lawsuit problems and he didn't want to give his family more financial problems than ever. So there he was, waiting at the entrance of a fancy restaurant that the film crew arranged for the show. He would try to calm down and prepared himself to meet his date, but he knew it wouldn't be easy since there were cameras following him like crows. He just has to greet her and escort inside to a table already reserved for them. As for money, the crew already took care of it as they already promised to reimburse when this was finished.

"Damn it. What am I doing? This is just a normal date. There's no bandits or evil shinobi coming after me. I seriously need to calm down and get this over it." He was thinking this as he starting to feel sweaty. Most of his life was focused on his shinobi career and his family, so even he was nervous at what was to come.

But the real question on his mind was his potential date. He was still 13-years-old and just possessing an artificial body may have some problems when it came to his age. He just hoped it's not someone weird like the ones he met in previous years.

*A few weeks earlier*

"Blind Ninja.. Dates?" she echoed with a bit of disbelief in her tone. Slanting her expression, the Chuunin cupped her forehead and shook her head. "She said I'd do that? Sounds like our Main Branch Sennin... sure. Mhm, yeah, I'll do it." The teen girl hung up the phone and let out a tired sigh. Apparently, there was a new hit TV show in Kumogakure that aimed to broadcast blind shinobi dating. It sounded like an entertaining concept for sure, but Suika, at this point in her life, had no real interest in dating or making a spectacle of her shinobi career. Prior to this phone call, the idea of signing up for such a program seemed laughable, but the information that the producer shared to her on the phone compelled her to agree. This wasn't really her choice, it was an order from her superior and master, Kagetsu Yuii. According the producer, the station approached Yuii to be on the show forgetting she was a already a taken woman. Instead, as a sort of representative for herself, she chose Suika, her apprentice, to take her place. What was her motive for electing her? Who knew, really, but it didn't really matter. If this is what the woman wanted, well, Suika would do just that.

"Ugh, I don't like this..." she grumbled as she dragged herself to her closet. As she examined its contents in her self-pitied daze, she was quick to shake it off as a certain dress caught her eye. "You know what... if I'm going to do this, I'm going to do this right!" she exclaimed as she pepped herself up. Excitedly snagging a dress that was gifted to her from a seamstress she once did a mission for, Suika prepared herself for Blind Ninja Dates. Besides, the girl was once a performer before she was a ninja; it was time to bring her stage persona back to life.

*Present*

"It's showtime."

Walking into the fancy restaurant in her decadent, floral dress, a soft breeze blew against her dark hair as lights shimmered around her. This was all fabricated, of course. Trying not to roll her eyes at the zany producers and the stalking film crew, she soon met her mysterious suitor. "Yuu-san?" she questioned as she approached a casually dressed fellow at the entrance of the establishment. Yuu was not someone she regularly talked to, but she did remember him from their Chuunin exams. He was a bit younger than her, too, she recalled. Not that it mattered too much... obviously this wouldn't end in a true love connection, right? The fifteen-years old gal beamed a pleasant smile at the boy.

"Hello, Yuu-san," she corrected her previously puzzled greeting with a much more formal one. "It's been a while since the last time I saw you." The camera crew zoomed into the pair by the instruction of sparkly-eyed producers, especially after she recited those words. Were they digging for history? Dirt? Was this a hint to the viewers that these two were once well-acquainted for, well, reasons?! Suika held in an amused grin as she imagined what the film crew were conjuring in their heads. This was definitely going to be an interesting night.

Suika would wait for Yuu's response and allow him to guide her to their seats. She'd let him take the lead as she opted to go with the flow of the night, for now. "I wonder if he was coaxed into this, too..." she mused as she continued taking in this televised phenomena.

"Yuu-san?"

Yuu's eyes widened as he heard a familiar voice that he didn't hear for a long time. Turning around, he saw a young woman wearing an orange formal dress decorated in orange, yellow, and gold roses. He was surprised not only to see someone from his Chuunin Exams but just seeing her dress made him a bit embarrassed at his own attire.

"Y-Yeah. Suika-san, right? I haven't seen you for a while ever since the Chuunin Exams." He tried not to blush as he approached her. Damn, those Blind Ninja Date people were somehow giving him an unexpected partner for this. While he was happy to see her again, he was still uncomfortable at this whole reality show gig. Especially that he could feel that they were watching him meeting with Suika. "Come on. I managed to reserve a table for us for tonight."

While he did say this with a confident tone, he was aware that the film crew was the one who made the reservation. It was even more uncomfortable as the film crew followed them as they enter the restaurant and escorted by a head waiter to their said table that was located on the right side of the restaurant. As he sat on a chair, he wondered what he should try to discuss something. Besides, they were filming a reality show and he has to do something to impress the producer while avoiding not to embarrass himself on camera. His sister mentioned she will watch it when it airs and he was not going to do something that makes him the laughingstock of the household.

Thankfully, he has time to think as a waiter approached them and asked for their orders while giving them some menus for them to find something to enjoy. As he read it, he was a bit conflicted at what meal he should take. This was not a ramen stand or ice cream bar that he usually visited and just buying something like ramen would be frowned upon by the producer. So for his sake, he decided to try ordering Nikujaga and cream stew.

And after waiting for Suika to order her own meal, he knew he needed to talk about something. He would ask her if she was coaxed in this crazy reality show, but he knew the film crew would stop him if he did so. So for their sake and his own sake, he decided to try a simple topic for now.

"So, Suika-san, what have you been up to after the exams? To be honest, I didn't have the chance to know you ever since and I know this is a good time to do so." A lame topic, sure. But since he and the others were too focused on the exams, they didn't have time to have a casual chat and get to know them better. So since Suika is here, he would try to get a chance to do so.

(OOC: Just in case you don't know what Nikujaga is, it's a Japanese dish of meat, potatoes, and onion stewed in sweetened soy sauce.)

It seemed he remembered her, too, as the boy acknowledged her by name and shared where he last saw her. She almost chuckled at the disappointment she saw in the producers' eyes; that wasn't as juicy a story as they had hoped for. Following Yuu to a neatly decorated table, Suika sat herself and, with fine etiquette, equipped herself with what was presented for her. It wasn't in her nature to be so showy with her table manner, but it was a skill she learned through countless meetings with lesser nobles and politicians in Kumogakure's diplomatic subbranch, so why not? Plus, it would translate well on camera that shinobi, known for their terrifying strength, can also can be refined and delicate in their public displays.

Going through the menu, most of the entrees did not call out to the teen. Many of the dishes were salt heavy... and, quite frankly, Suika's tooth always leaned toward a much sweeter side. Should she forsake the dining custom she was just upholding and submit herself to her cravings? Would she be Yuii's apprentice if she decided otherwise? As soon as the waiter arrived, she recited her request with a simple smile. "I would like the dessert menu, please." As the waiter went to retrieve just that, she focused herself on the young Chuunin before her. Based off his mannerisms, Yuu looked a little nervous. Suika didn't blame him; it was hard to feel natural with a film crew examining your every move, especially as major bits of this would inevitably be broadcast in every Kumo home. She was tempted to take lead of the conversation, but he broke the ice before she could. She expressed a friendly grin.

"Do you want the short answer?" she joked. Growing a bit more relaxed, she continued. "It's been busy for me, that's for sure. Battles here, paperwork there... this is a welcomed change of pace." Her Chuunin career thus far had been extensive, there was no realistic way for her to describe all that she had failed and accomplished since her exam. She felt Yuu would relate to that all too well; Kumogakure wasn't shy when it came to piling work on their shinobi, especially Chuunin. "How about you, Yuu-san? Anything new since our last exam?" A hint of mischief crept into her words. "Anyone new?" she playfully winked. She was not serious by that at all, but they were on a television show. For a moment, teasing the audience and Yuu really amused her.

"Dessert menu, madame?"

"Thank you." she replied with a nod. While deliberating on which sugary pastry to order, she awaited Yuu's response.
