As Shannon had predicted, Elroy didn't mind her more outgoing attitude. “Alright scarf girl.” He said while starting to move. “Let's go for a walk.” Elroy had finished eating his apple and threw the core with all of his might. It landed beside Shion's clone, who was hiding in some tall grass. Elroy appeared to still be entirely unaware of her presence as he walked arm in arm with Shannon.
Regina hadn't been searching for very long. There were a lot of mental signatures around this time of day. The ones leaping along rooftops were of some interest. Regina didn't know where they were going, but she assumed they were headed towards some big monster fight. Her aura may have gone unnoticed because they thought it was in that direction. It didn't matter. None of them would be willing to ally with her in a state of such urgency. You didn't have to be a mind reader to figure that out.
She picked up on Elroy's mind and instantly looked to the streets. There he was, walking with Shannon. That outfit made it painfully obvious that she was a magical girl. Had Elroy found them a patron? She immediately used a shadow to get down to street level before reverting back into her human form. As soon as she stepped out of the ally she was hiding in, Elroy spotted her.
“I win!” The incubus said with a grin. “I found this scarf girl in my travels. She's all about making friends and protecting people. And don't let her cool exterior fool you, she's quite timid. Definitely your type.” He pulled his arm out from around Shannon's and lightly pushed her towards Regina.
Regina sighed, but didn't back away from their potential friend. She eyed her carefully, biting at her thumb nail as her eyes passed over the woman. Regina wasn't sure how reliable this girl would be in the long run, but it wasn't often they found someone who could tolerate Elroy's attitude. The temptation was to transform again so that she could look into Shannon's mind, but there was no reason to revert to such aggressive tactics yet. This was a potential ally after all.
“Hello, I'm Regina.” She looked away from Shannon. “I'm sure Elroy has already told you a little bit about me, as well as our situation.” She hugged herself gently and looked at the stone magical girl out of the corner of her eye. “I would like us to be friends, but our situation has made it difficult for us to work with just anyone. We have needs tended to, at least for the time being.” She closed her eyes with a sigh. “We have no patron, nothing material to offer. But we are capable fighters that can fight on you or your patron's behalf. While we cannot control our auras, we are very difficult to pinpoint and can move around the city very quickly.” She opened her eyes again. “But we really need a source of coins and protection. Just a place where we can sleep without worry. If you could provide either of those, or know where we could find such things...” She turned her body to face Shannon again. “I believe an alliance, and even friendship, could soon follow.”
