I'd like to speak to someone. It's about Ken.
I'm sure you know what happened to him last Sunday by now. He... just lost it. Just like that. People died. I couldn't-- I WISH he could've been stopped in time to--- ...but it didn't happen. He did get stopped in the end, though. We took him to the hospital.
First we thought it was a curse but it's STILL happening to him. He's not himself! Something's off, and he needs help. I just thought... Do you know what might've caused this? SOMETHING. Maybe even someone?
Please, if there's anything I can do to help...

I'm fine. I swear I'm getting sleep. But--
Clef, I need to ask for a huge favor.
[Accidental Video || Open action]
[There's a click that should have meant the device was turned off, but Umi's mind is too preoccupied with other matters to get it right. The video feature kicks in to a blur of motion. There's a glimpse of her face, along with a patch of sky and a snowy street.
She sighs deeply, placing the device down somewhere horizontal. From this new vantage point we can see Umi waiting by a coffee stand without minding the cold. One of her arms is bandaged and she seems quite weary. Shaking her head, she mumbles under her breath.]
...And it's his birthday tomorrow. How can it--?? It's not fair, dammit.
[Apparently Umi's been waiting for her order; the barista startles her when he calls for her attention to hand her two big coffees. He's kind enough to ask if something's wrong. Umi just smiles sadly.] Only EVERYTHING. But nevermind that. Thanks. So how much do I--?
[She stops as something above her head catches her attention. Frowning, we can see her put the coffees down on the same flat surface from which the device records on.]
Huh. They decorated? ...Could've sworn that wasn't there a blink ago...
[ ooc : OPEN MISTLETOE ACTION. Umi's been staying at the hospital to keep an eye on Ken ever since this mess here happened and just came down to be stuck under mistletoe. Come cheer her up! And by cheer her up I mean freak her out! 8D
This is open to anyone ever: current CR, perfect strangers, boys, girls, ANYONE. Have at it. ]
