"You don't need to look so dejected, Saber. I'm sure it won't be that much of a wait," Xiaoyu said not long after they took their seats. It wasn't that hard to read Saber's mood when she wasn't acting in a guarded way but rather as a girl of her apparent age. In fact, the gap between Saber's behavior as a King of legend and lore and as an everyday girl was one of her biggest charm points in Xiaoyu's opinion. One she made sure to document in her journal every now and then.
As Xiaoyu expected, it didn't take long for their orders to arrive. However, she barely had the chance to take a tentative bite at the strange sandwich before a huge explosion wrecked the restaurant.
"What was that? Actually, were you talking about an explosion earlier does that have anything to do with this, huh... Shin, right?" Xiaoyu asked, making an effort to remember the boy's name, after taking cover behind Saber.
"Ho... this modern cuisine is very interesting indeed," Li said after he took a bite of the burger. It probably would be better with some tea, but he could make do with whatever drinks this place had to sell, too.
"In a city like this, that kind of incident shouldn't be considered so unusual—" Just as Li tried to explain his point of view on the news about the explosion, an expected one shook the very restaurant they were in, probably putting everyone who hadn't been hit in a state of shock or alert.
The first priority on the Assassin's mind was ascertaining that his Master was out of harm's way with a quick glance.
With that out of the way, he turned his attention to the duo that seemed to be aware of the reason behind this attack. "I believe this kind of act is outlawed by the authorities of this era, boy. While I'm not against helping the wounded, it would be in your best interest to explain what happened. Especially since it looks like the two of you are expecting it to happen again at any moment," Li said calmly, dusting his coat off as he got back to his feet.
