    "Oh we both know you don't stand a chance. Maybe I'm sparing you." Eliseo grins teasingly. "But if you want to get pelted..."

    "You might be surprised, I think my aim has gotten better." Anastasia gives her boyfriend a mischievous little smile as she steps away and starts to look for some manner of cover to head towards, insistent on not letting him have the last word.

    As Ana starts to move away, Eliseo stoops over, scoops up some snow, and lets loose a snowball right at the center of her back. If she looks back at him, she'll see his wicked grin moments before dashed to take cover himself.

    Felandria pulls a small box from a pocket and sets it down next to Mr. C

    Merry Thanksmas, Mr. C

    I’ll see you around soon, let Reginald know if you need a lift anywhere else.

    Of course, dear, I’m sure I have something in here that can help.

    Fel reaches into the magic bag and pulls out what appears to be a small hand mirror.

    This should allow you to check in on all your friends and family and see if they are in any danger.

    Just think hard about the person you wanna see and the mirror will show them to you, so you can see how they’re doing.


    "Merry Thanksmas to you too." he says as she leaves, looking really sad all with the black clouds you se in mangas.
    "God damn I forgot to buy anything for her. Should have known she got something."

    He pokes the box a few times, since he read to much fantasy stories with Mimics the last weeks. When he is sure it's non he opens it up to look inside.

    There's a brief stutter in her stride when Eliseo hits Anastasia dead-on in the center of mass. She looks back over her shoulder and giving him a look of simply "wow, really?", then straightens up and makes a beeline for a large rock off to the side of the path. Kneeling down in the snow, she starts to pack multiple snowballs, concealing herself well - but Ana's still not entirely used to accounting for two tails, and depending on his angle, Eliseo may be able to just barely hit the curve of one.

    Inside, Mr. C will find what seems to be a black cube almost the size of the box, it if Mr. C pushes the red button, the cube will shift around and form a small helicopter built for Mr. C to fly around in.

    Sam really isn’t sure how he got into this situation.
    ”Pink some days and red on others, no clue, and the beach ain’t really my thing most of the time. Ain’t got the bod for it, y’know? And I only ever got the basics on how to swim.” and that was at Eastside. The Gardens had too many fancy pools not to learn, even if it made him feel a little insecure.

    Rose, on the other hand, knows exactly how he got into this situation. If he ever asks her who he has to thank for this, she'll point him straight to Krayger.

    "Really?" Rose smiles. "I would have pegged you as more of a vermilion, maybe a crimson." She holds up her hands to frame him between her fingers. "It certainly fits you. Very nicely compliments your, um... blue." She drops her hands and gives a little sigh. "...Yeah, okay, I really have no idea what I'm doing here." She says bluntly, dropping the flirty facade. "I'm used to dealing with different people. I don't think I've ever, ah, messed around with a chef before." Because that's definitely the thing foremost on her mind right now.

    Rose smiles. "Okay, yeah, this'll probably go better if I'm a little more forthright about my intentions." She pulls up a chair and proceeds to mount it backwards, such that her chin is resting on top of the back. "It's really not much more complicated than what I said, though. New agency, new coworkers. I'm hoping to get to know everyone. You're sort of the next name on the list." She rests her chin on her fist and shakes her head, a bemused smile on her face. "But that's sort of the trouble with talking to strangers, isn't it? You don't know what you don't know." She shrugs and smiles. "If this is a bad time, we could postpone it until a later date... say, tomorrow night, over some bowls of french onion soup? My treat."

    Eliseo laughs as he dashes behind a bench for some light cover. He doesn't duck down, though, and nor does he start to build up snowballs. No, he'll stay agile. Instead he scoops up his second snowball and lets it loose at Ana's tail. His aim is rather good. "You've gotta keep your head up!" Eliseo advises with more laughter.

    Anastasia startles just a bit as Eliseo's snowball goes zooming past her cover, tracing a groove through her fur if not quite hitting the core of the tail itself. She pulls her tail closer and peeks around the corner, waiting for the moment he goes for another handful of snow. The instant he goes back up, Ana springs out from cover and sends one flying straight for his head! "Looks like you've gotta keep yours down!"

    Ana follows her opponent's lead and keeps moving, scooping up the other snowballs she'd made and shaking both tails to shed any snow and fluff them back out. She moves retreats backwards and strafes back in Nadia's general direction, trying to reach the light cover of a thin birch tree. If she sees Eliseo wind back for another throw, she'll aim another snowball right at him in retaliation. The odds aren't in her favor here - it's a very difficult shot, even if the kitsune's surprisingly adept at aiming her throws.

    Unexpected, the man thinks, but then again she is a slime and they don't nessesary follow the same rules as humans and other people.

    "I'm sorry. I didn't know that you can't do that. I guess thats why your kind is common in warm areas." he replies. He is a bit out of subjects right now.

    Mr C is an adventurer, just like Indiana Jones. Which means a big red button is not a point of concern and more a new adventure. So he pushes the button, especially since he can be sure it is no deathtrap-
    While the Helicopter appears Mr.C suddendly gets those aviator goggles and a scarf which flies in the wind that wasn't there befor.
    He climbs into the helicopter and flies off... a rather dangerouse flight as the little stuff animal only got book knowledge about this. So a rather dangerouse flying stuff animal is in the air.

    The slimegirl pulls her hands apart with a 'plop' sound.

    She strokes her chin, to show that she's thinking and it's an important thing to consider.
    She then shakes her head.
    'no'.
    Then, she goes back to visibly thinking by stroking her chin. Maybe a mage?
    She points at herself - 'I' - then at her head - 'think' - she then wags her finger - 'but not' - she then purses her lips and moves up closer to the man. She mimes blowing air at him, but obviously no air comes out. If air came out, he'd be able to feel it.

    She didn't really say anything new, but. . .well.

    Sadly, the slimegirl doesn't realize rhe reason he backed up. If she had realized that, she would pretend to kiss him in order to tease him. Instead, she just thinks he backed away because she got too close.

    Instead, she gets a 'thinking' look on her face. She's not really sure what a golem is.

    The slimegirl then gets a look on her face like she's asking a question. Then, even though she has no idea if this guy speaks sign language, she tries to use what little knowledge she has to spell out 'golem': pointing downwards, making an 'o' with her thumb and fingers, then an L with a thumb and finger, pointing two fingers upwards, and then three fingers downwards.
    Then, she traces out a questionmark with her pinkie finger, to emphasize that she's asking a question.

    The slimegirl is only half-hopeful he can understand; most people she asks like this can't understand at all, and the rest end up trying to speak with sign language more with her and that leaves her completely lost.
    And, besides, asking what a golem is really isn't that important of a question.

    Eliseo straightens quickly to avoid the first snowball. "Too slow." He taunts, hurling another snowball to harry her. He pursues, scooping up another snowball as he moves. Another throw, prompting her response. He turns his body to dodge. "You gotta aim for center mass or you won't get anywhere." He stoops down to reload.

    Anastasia manages to avoid the first snowball Eliseo throws her way and tries to duck under the second- but she's not quite fast enough, and it clips her shoulder with a light pff, scattering some snow into her ruddy hair. She brushes some of it away with a huff and reaches the tree, winding back and throwing her last snowball the moment Eliseo comes to a stop.

    This time though, Anastasia sort of follows her boyfriend's advice - she aims for his waist, which is probably the right height to catch him in the torso or the top of his head while he's bending down to reach the snow. It's not quite the center of mass, but its close enough right?

    Seeing Eliseo close in like this is making her a little nervous though. She looks between her left and her right, hesitating on which way to run before sprinting across to the left side of their impromptu battlefield. It's a risky choice, with no cover on her route, but she does have a trick up her sleeve. The first time Eliseo throws a snowball at her, Anastasia turns into a fox and keeps running until she's behind a bench.
