Leave the Future in the Past, We're Living in the Present now, Baby!
As the winter festival was brought up, Lethe felt herself nervously chuckle. "Y-yeah… I feel embarrassed when they pop out at random… people stare too much for comfort."
She was able to deal with it regardless though, despite her discomfort. She looked up to him as he questioned the laser tag, smirking and nodding to his question. Of course it was. This was for mages and non mages alike. Couldn't have someone hurt here from this game! As he confessed he liked to fight a bit more than enjoyment, she pouted some, but it dissipated when he said he appreciated her competitive side of her. That had her face flaring up to the point her ears were also red. "You may noy know what love language is, but you seem to already have it down pat, and it's dangerous. And you stumbling like you do also is endearing to me."
She laughs to him while glancing away, trying to not let her smile show, but she knew he would see it regardless. She then cleared her throat. "Weeeell, I guess it's a good thing I'm here with you, huh? I can help you learn how to enjoy yourself while you're hanging out with me. But laser tag is meant to be competitive."
She looked down to his hand as he squeezed her hand, and she smiled to it before she started lightly tugging him towards the laser tag game. He patted her head before he mentioned blowing off steam and she smirked. “Maybe, that black haired guildmate only wished to get to know you better, and thought it’d be best to whisk you away to avoid a few other eyes on her and yourself to get some alone time with you before you met up with them again, or called them over. Who knows? But it probably also is revenge for the accidental whisking off her feet you had done. Which you were correct in the expression in this case. And yes! I am enjoying this! Now lets play laser tag.”
The two approached the edge of the park where a building was with the little sign that advertised the game. Lethe pulled Mathis inside and they would see a black lit room with various things around. A grin started to form on her face as she was handed a red vest and a lacrima gun. She looked over towards Mathis, and grinned at him. “I hope you are ready to get creamed by this black haired guildmate of yours.”
She snickers as she checks all the sensors on her chest. The attendant at this game quickly explained that they were to aim at the sensors and that three strikes were needed to win the game. After that, they were set loose in the building.
Lethe had gone on ahead of Mathis and let herself hide. With her enhanced senses from Veles, and her own slayer lacrima, the lighting was hardly a challenge for her. Some music started playing, another love song, but one that sounded upbeat that they could play to. As soon as Lethe heard Mathis getting closer to her, she would quickly move herself out from behind her hiding spot and would shoot her heart shaped lasers at him. She didn’t look to see if she made it, listening for the sensor to go off for her to know if she touched it or not.
This little tactic would happen a time or two again, with Lethe getting hit a couple times as well. She was in here running around, in a dress and heels no less, and was playing as hard as she would if she weren’t. She did not fear others seeing her underclothes or running in heels, that was a strength she purposely made herself overcome to be able to do things better. Like Mathis mentioned, she did have a competitive side to her, and she was letting it show, along with her ability to use a gun here as well. She was no stranger to them, and it was thanks to her time period and the fact that half her magic was similar to this.
If she was correct, both her and Mathis right now were tied with two strikes each. She leaned herself up against a post that was thick enough to cover her body, and she let her wolf ears peek out to hear better and get a better sense of where he was at. It would only take a second before she got him. And it would only take a second for that opportunity to reach her.
She quickly flung herself out from behind the post and fired her gun. One shot. Two shots. Three shots. She heard the buzzer sound, but it came from her first, before it went off at Mathis. She looked down at her chest before she looked up at Mathis. He beat her. She closed her eyes as she puffed up her right cheek for a moment. Afterwards, she begun laughing and smiled to the man. “I almost had you.”
She grinned to him before she started slipping off her vest. ‘You’re having more fun than you thought you would, huh?’
Veles snorted to her. Lethe had to just nod as she sighed happily. This was more fun, making it an actual date than a hang out with him. As they were leaving the building, she raised a hand up to block the sun and allow her eyes a moment to adjust to the light again. She was using her hearing, wolf ears put away again, to note where Mathis was to her.
