I think I’ll go to bed soon. If any of you need a zone 2 stamp and I’m not back in time, send an ask letting me know you’ve pretty much just stamped your card while Rikari and I are asleep and I’ll write some kind of silly post about him rolling around.

Yeah, definitely going to bed soon. Good night.

Neku had thought Rhyme had known he was completely joking with that last remark, but…guess not. There was no way just walking up to that rat thing and trying to scoop it up into a hug would actually work, though. For all he knew, the thing would bolt—along with their chances of getting that last stamp, too.

Maybe…he should go get something as a backup plan, just in case Rhyme’s attempt turned into an epic fail. There was no way they could lose this. And by the time Rhyme had scooped up the Reaper, Neku was already walking away, trying to find that cardboard box.

Whoever that blonde was that had just scooped him up earned the ‘first to die horribly the second he got access to bebop sharks’ award. They could have just asked for a stamp. He couldn’t get away anyway.

"Alright, alright, I get it, now put me down! The stamp you’re looking for is right here! Just show me your books and I’ll stamp them for you."

"Sorry!" Rhyme apologized, putting the chinchilla down quickly. "I just didn’t want you to run." Kneeling down in front of the little Reaper, she got out her booklet and gestured for Neku to come over.

After being put down, Rikari pouted for a few seconds before stamping Rhyme and Neku’s pages for zone 2’s stamp requirement. He then scampered off. This time hopefully he could find a place to take a nap undisturbed. Maybe that memorial would be a good place?

The reaper was still pouting. But now he was playing with the oversized stamp necklace he’d been given. Maybe if the players nearby were quick enough, they could just pick him up and stamp their books themselves. Or they could just ask. They’d be able to get it either way at this rate, the reaper was getting real fed up with how people weren’t even bothering to look for him. And he’d heard from Jade and the others, too.

Even though she knew that Neku was joking, she looked at him and smiled. “Good idea. It did work before.” Now she just needed to sneak up on it. It was actually kind of cute, so Rhyme didn’t want to hurt it—not that she would have wanted to do such a thing if it hadn’t been.

'Steady… just keep steady as you get closer, Raimu,’ she thought to herself. Once again, she was mingling with the crowd of people, pretending to be a pedestrian. But, when she was close enough, she bent down and scooped the little rodent up in one smooth motion. “Got’cha!

The reaper in question was sitting smack dab in the middle of the underpass, pouting. He could not believe that he’d been so careless as to get caught while his mind was wandering. He wasn’t aware of the next group of approaching players in the slightest.

image

"Hmph. Maybe I’ll kill them first come day five to get back at them or something…"

"Neku… that looks like a Noise," Rhyme mumbled, staring over at the rodent in question. Was it a Reaper in a Noise form? Probably… Rhyme wasn’t sure what else it could be. Besides, Neku seemed to think it was from a scan.

image

"…Maybe we should find a cardboard box first or something…"

Yeah. But it didn’t scan like a Noise." Usually those showed up as symbols, not unreadable little…rat things. As weird as it was, this had to be their next target. But—how were they supposed to get a stamp from something that wasn’t human, exactly? The thing didn’t even look like it could carry stamps.

Or maybe you should just walk up and try to hug it. Worked before.

"I’m just saying that sometimes, hugs are the answer to certain problems,” Rhyme giggled, folding her arms behind herself as they walked. “I mean, why be aggressive if you can help it? Or, that’s how I’ve always felt. …How’s your face, by the way…?” Rhyme’s voice ended with a tinge of concern.

Rhyme and Neku were currently walking toward the Underpass, scouting out for more Reapers. So far, after their good luck with the other guy, it’d been fruitless for a while.

Yeah, but that doesn’t exactly mean we’ve gotta go around handing out free hugs, either. It’s weird." Neku added before huffing out a short sigh, reaching up to rub a spot on his forehead at the mention. "…And I’m fine. Just a little sore. Anyway, we should probably give this are another scan. Just in case.

Neku wasted no time in tapping his Player Pin, opening up a scan field to check for any unreadable people nearby, too. It didn’t take long before he hit a block, spotting what he thought was another Reaper just up ahead, farther along the Underpass.

Looks like we found our guy.

The reaper in question was sitting smack dab in the middle of the underpass, pouting. He could not believe that he’d been so careless as to get caught while his mind was wandering. He wasn’t aware of the next group of approaching players in the slightest.

A cactuar has spotted you!
Anonymous

Rikari danced madly along with the cactaur before casting all his Blue Blood Burns Blue at once on it. ALL SIX.

This thing was not surviving long enough to use Thousand Needles.

The reaper was surprised. How many reapers had gotten stamps that weren’t zone 2?

"Good thing I have a zone 2 stamp. Since I made the mistake of not paying attention to where I was going, I’ll be a good sport and give you both a stamp. Don’t go to cat street by the way, it’s covered in webs. It should be walled off to you guys anyway, but if you get in, regardless, you don’t want to stay there for long."

Rikari then took the stamp that had been hanging around his neck and applied it to both Jun and Elphaba’s books in the Zone 2 slot.

Jun smiled as he received a stamp in Zone 2’s section. Now all that was left was the Zone 1 stamp. But where to find a Zone 1 Reaper? They will find him sooner or later. For now, he figured he should at least thank the Reaper for the stamp. “Thank you very much for the stamp.” He then looked at the blank “Zone 1” page before closing his book. “Looks like we’re going backwards in numbers Elphaba.” The events of Slenderman was still in his mind however. He definitely scared him. He never expected Slenderman to be real at all.

"Really? I was hoping to stop by the cafe there to get something to eat." Elphaba frowned a bit. Maybe there would be a place to grab a quick bite on the way. The last thing she had eaten was a slice of cake the day before, after all.

"What’s your name, by the way?"

Elphaba, despite still smiling slightly at the Animal in front of her, couldn’t stop the feeling of dread that said the strange person she had seen before would be coming back now that they had gotten a second stamp.

Despite the fact that he’d heard rumors that a witch knowing one’s name gives them power over you, Rikari couldn’t help but blurt out his name.

"My name? It’s Rikari. Just Rikari. It won’t be soon though. As soon as I find that damned noise fragment, I’m a new person. But enough about that, I need to go take care of reaper business."

And with that, Rikari scurried off.

Rikari had been running for a bit. Those damned Cactuars, despite not being after him, were a distraction. He hadn’t been looking where he’d been going, and had run face first into a player. Two of them, in fact. There was no way he was getting out of this, he’d need the extra dexterity his wings could give him in order to jump out of the way fast enough.

As Jun was running searching for a Reaper, he ran smack into someone. He then looked at the person and noticed his wings. “Well looks like we found ourselves a Reaper. Alright Reaper, give us our stamps right now.” Jun handed the Reaper his book and waited for Elphaba to catch up. 

Elphaba crouched down in front of the Animal and smiled as she took out her book. “We just want a stamp and we’ll be on our way.” Hopefully it wouldn’t be another Zone 3 stamp. She would have hated to run all the way from Zone 1 for nothing.

The reaper was surprised. How many reapers had gotten stamps that weren’t zone 2?

"Good thing I have a zone 2 stamp. Since I made the mistake of not paying attention to where I was going, I’ll be a good sport and give you both a stamp. Don’t go to cat street by the way, it’s covered in webs. It should be walled off to you guys anyway, but if you get in, regardless, you don’t want to stay there for long."

Jun looked at the timer on his hand. “Let’s get going Elphaba. We do not have too much time left. And we still need 2 more Zone stamps.” Jun started to head out of the A-East towards the Scramble Crossing. 

Elphaba nodded and ran as quickly as she could. As they went, they quickly debated which direction to take. She was extremely grateful that they didn’t have to worry about the crowds, but she wasn’t used to running.

They ended up heading towards where she thought a cafe she had talked to someone in before was. Maybe she could convince her Partner to stop in to grab some food to eat on the run. Stupid high metabolism.

They were almost there when she caught sight of the Reaper she had talked to the day before in order to get the wall down. She stopped suddenly and tried to get her breath back. Hopefully Jun would notice the Animal with Reaper wings and stop as well.

PSA If any of you need me and I don’t respond quickly just message the RRG blog and they should get to me very soon.

I’ll be playing Tales of Xillia 2. Also Rikari is in the overpass near cat street. Go get him.

Emerging from the safe that he’d taken a nap in, Rikari was surprised to find everything covered in ice. Also it was rather dark outside for it to be day time.

"WHY IS THERE ICE ALL OVER OUTSIDE. WHY WOULD ANYONE DO THAT."

And so he teleported out of CAT street and onto the Underpass next to it.
