[For someone who's officially just a part-time worker, Tetsuo sure seems to think he owns the Nonah arcade. He's updated his wardrobe to a red jacket with white fur since the last time he appeared on the network, and is currently lounging in a chair with his back to the window, idly playing with a token. Observant characters might notice he's got a few dried blood splatters on his shirt - those in the know might piece together it's from yesterday's incident with Ken. Outside you can see Kaneda pulling up on his bike, looking at a sign hanging on the arcade window, and then driving off.]
Listen up, Nonah. I only wanna say this once. There's a couple rule changes around the arcade. One, no powers allowed inside. I don't know what it is you do, and I don't care.
[Anyone still paying attention to the window behind him can see Kaneda pull up again and calmly get off his bike with a crowbar.]
You don't get to do it.
[Almost drops crowbar. Saves it.]
Two, the arcade's my territory, so if you wanna play, you better do what I tell you.
[Walks up to window. Inspects window. Inspects crowbar.]
And... oh, yeah. Heh. I almost forgot.
[Jams in window.]
Kaneda's not welcome around here, so don't bother showing up.
[Reaches in and unlocks door.]
Cause if you do, Kaneda... I won't stop this time.
We'll find out what breaks first - you or EVERYTHING ELSE!
[Tetsuo's eyes suddenly widen; he only realizes Kaneda's behind him a second before Kaneda snags Tetsuo in a headlock. Tetsuo's communicator drops to the floor, and the rest of this is recorded sideways. It’s an odd angle, but enough to get what’s happening.
Kaneda knew how to handle Tetsuo by now--aim for the head and you can bring him down. Everything Tetsuo did dealt with concentration, and if you could break it, you’re left with one weakened bully struggling for control. His elbow stays locked around that neck for as long as he can hold it, but with Tetsuo clawing to get free like an angry cat, it was proving a lot harder than he’d care to admit. ]
What the -HELL- is wrong with you?!
Get off me!
Bullying kids, now, Tetsuo? Think THIS is how you act all big and powerful?
[That grip on Tetsuo's neck turns a little tighter, but not enough to completely cut the flow of oxygen.]
You’re EXACTLY what you hate!
[Tetsuo's teeth are bared and clenched. He struggles as hard as he possibly can, eyes wide and wild with fury.]
I don’t care! At least I'M NOT YOU!
[With that, the screen flashes white as Tetsuo's shield flicks into place.]
[FIGHT GET! Replies will be from Kaneda and Tetsuo, alternate sides of the battle. If you’d prefer one or the other, state it in your subject line! Characters are free to try and reason with either of them, or get more information as they please. If they want to try and stop this physically, we do have Sabriel and Bull planned to finally take Tetsuo down, but if there’s a way your character can help that doesn’t interfere with that, then feel free to show up! There’s going to be a lot of structural damage, fleeing citizens, and yelling teenagers.]
