@vanguard_prime:

Akira raises an eyebrow when Brandon thinks they are late, causing them all to make a mad dash through the airport, pay and then get on the plane. Felicity must have upgraded her wheelchair because she managed to keep up with them just fine and used her naturally gifted feminine wiles to get the doors to open so they could all boards the plane.

The flight itself is long and boring, especially since Akira could just fly there much faster under her own power. Little conversation is held between the two friends since the Japanese native is not very good at it. When the plane lands, both catch up to Brandon. Neither of them heard any snoring with Akira giving shake of her head and Felicity putting on one of her sunny smiles and saying no.

Akira tilts her head as she watches Brandon talk to his friend Ron. That is when she flies up into the air, causing other people to gasp in shock and surprise as she does. They never expected someone to just up and leave in such a dramatic fashion. Akira is now above Los Angeles, getting a birds eye view of it. The sprawling city looks different from Tokyo. She already misses her home but now it's Los Angeles. She'll have to get used to it and the American way of life. Taking a deep breath, she lands back on the ground beside Felicity who berates her for doing that, whispering, "Just because you don't have a secret identity doesn't mean you can just up and leave like that! But like a curious cat, she has to ask in a more polite tone, "Where did you go anyway?"

Akira shrugs, "Just up. I wanted to see Los Angeles from the sky."

"Uhh, why?" Felicity asks. "Every city looks the same from the air."

Akira glances down at her friend, her chocolate brown eyes boring into her and making her feel a bit uncomfortable. After an awkward silence, Akira speaks plainly, "Not when you see a city like I can."

That's right, Felicity keeps forgetting. Akira can see in all the spectrums of light and that means she can see a city like no other. Every single one must seem different to her because she's not viewing it like most do. Her contemplation is interrupted when Akira hefts up her carry on bag and Felicity puts hers in hers on her legs as both of them make their way over to Brandon, "So...where are we going? HI! I'm Felicity, this is my best friend and work partner, Akira." Felicity says, ever enthusiastic as she sticks a hand out to Ron. Akira bows to him politely but says nothing.

OOC: Very nice! ^_^

@vanguard_prime: (OOC: I look forward to it. ~_^)

The Japanese locals typically refer to Starlight and Trinity as the dynamic duo. They make a good team and compliment each other's weaknesses. While Akira is the power, Felicity is the intelligence. Not that Starlight lacks in the smarts department, her business partner just happens to be better at it. And Felicity herself maybe bound to a wheelchair, but she provides invaluable tech support for the team. Want a neat gadget? Felicity is the woman to do it. Need something hacked? Again, Felicity is the one to go to on that. All without leaving a trail to follow.

Akira raises a black eyebrow as the man leaves, excusing himself and leaving the two women to stand there alone with each other. Her mouth moves to one side, then glances down at her friend, Felicity, as the hot blonde shrugs her slender shoulders before cracking that ever so familiar smile, "He likes you." She teases.

Akira rolls her eyes, practically scoffing, "Does not." She says in a vain attempt to deny Felicity the pleasure of admitting that, yes, she has noticed Brandon has taken a liking to her because that will eventually lead to--

"And you like him." Annnnd with those words it's too late, it's lead to it. Felicity went right into that assumption without even batting an eyelash. Akira takes a deep breath as she fights the urge to lose her patience, looking once again at Felicity with total exasperation as she folds her arms under her chest, "Interesting assumption, Felicity." She says in a cool voice that is smooth as ice in yet another attempt to try and convince her friend otherwise. But the blonde is not buying a single word of these excuses as she then starts giggling, shoulders moving up and down in a twitching movement. This causes Akira to throw her hands up in the air, "Fine! He's cute! Are you happy now?!"

Felicity bursts out laughing, leaning forward and with her hand over her mouth.

"How did you know? I didn't give any signs!" Akira asks, so wanting to stick her tongue out at her but refuses to be that childish.

But now comes the bombshell as Felicity collects herself long enough to stop laughing and reveal a stunning truth, "Actually, I had no idea." She tries to stiffle a giggle, eyes swimming with amusement as a look of sheer surprise crosses Akira's youthful Asian features, eyebrows shooting up like bean stalks, "What?!"

This nearly sends Felicity into another fit of laughter, making her struggle to get the words out as she holds her stomach, "I...was...just...assuming..." And she can't hold it anymore as she bursts out laughing. Akira blows some air into one cheek, about ready to literally choke her friend but that is when Brandon comes back in and both women resume what they had been doing before he left, but with Felicity trying her best not to laugh and Akira doing her level best not to scowl at her.

No Caption Provided

Upon Brandon's second exit, Akira refuses to speak to her friend as Felicity begins laughing once again, taking great delight in Starlight admitting to thinking Brandon is handsome when she had only been assuming instead of knowing. Such moments happen a little too frequently for Akira's tastes because somehow the blonde knows what buttons to push. But behind it all, despite what issues the two women may have, they respect each other at the end of the day and each would give their life for the other if it ever came down to it.

Akira is ever so glad Brandon comes back and suggests something to eat. Anything to take her mind off her embarrassment earlier and she nods. Felicity smiles as if in dream as she is the one that speaks up, "We're in, lead the way. And after that we'll be more than happy to show you where to go for some awesome gifts for your Mom."

@vanguard_prime: (OOC: Agreed. ^_^)

When Vanguard walks in and takes notice of Starlight, she is about ready to snap her fingers to bring him out of some long lost reality where only she exists as his sole reason for living. It is not lost on the light manipulating heroine that Vanguard has immediately taken a liking to her. The social cues he displays is as obvious as the red nose on Rudolph's cute adorable face.

Akira notes that Brandon does have a sort of charm to him. Chiseled features make him look handsome to her, but that's to be expected from his country of origin that describes a lot of American men and that isn't a bad thing. And what she can make out from his physique under that suit of his, she can see he keeps himself in fine shape. Also a plus. She can just imagine his body being carved out of stone and gifted to him by the One who created him. Perfect and without blemish. And then Akira realizes her thoughts about him are getting a little...steamy. She forces them away as if they annoying her and focuses on the issue at hand instead.

As Akira begins to raise her arm, ready to snap her fingers, her brown eyes lock with Vanguard's own. The daydream is a nice one. Riding on horseback on a shoreline with the sun setting behind the ocean waves, spilling it's colors over the clouds in a glorious display of pinks and reds is a thought worth hanging onto but only if the man himself is willing to make that fantasy into a reality for Akira is not an easy catch. She's a slippery fish that will escape if he's not careful or not persistent enough.

As it turns out, Akira has no need to snap her fingers at all since Vanguard breaks out of his fantasy world and greets Felicity. She lowers her hand and watches them both, saying very little since she has no need to interrupt them. However, the remark about being surprised about more paperwork is a too likely of a story because he left behind a clue as to what kind of character this guy is. He signed autographs, which means he's some kind of glory hound. And all the ones Akira has met are bored to tears over paperwork, even it happens to be only one page. But who knows, Vanguard could prove her wrong.

Another clue drops but Akira is already dismissing it since she's not here to put the poor man under a microscope like some kind of insect and examine him under her watchful eye. No, she's here because of a deal between them, a way to save Heroes for Hire, even if it means letting someone else take the reigns. She tries not to think of that last part since the business is her baby. She started it and letting someone else take control is like losing a part of herself. It's hard.

Finally! A name! When Vanguard introduces himself as Brandon, Akira decides to be respectful by greeting him as someone native to Japan would. She gives him a deep bow before resuming her position with her back perfectly straight like an arrow. Normally, calling someone by their first name in Japan is considered rude when permission is not given. But since Vanguard has clearly given it, she gives him an honorary title as it customary of her people to do so, "It is nice to meet you, Brandon San." She keeps voice even, but the accent is there. English is not her first language but she speaks it fluently and she sounds as pleasant as rose pedals falling on someone's skin. But still, no smile or any hint of emotion. Since Brandon does not know Akira as a person yet, it might be hard to pin down why she keeps herself so guarded.

"A pleasure to meet you, Brandon!" Felicity says, offering to shake the man's hand if he is so inclined. Unlike Akira, the blonde is an American through and through. She's also not afraid to smile, being the day to Akira's night. Ironic how that works since Starlight's powers are based entirely on controlling light in all it's aspects and yet the two women are the exact polar opposites in terms of personality.

But Felicity has no time to think about why Akira is the way she is when Brandon drops a hint like a pebble falling into a pond. The ripple effect hits her like a wave as she smiles up at him, pushing up her glasses again as she replies in a pleasant voice, dripping with a hint of confidence as if to try and inspire him to never give in nor surrender, "I'm sure you'll find Mrs. Right, just keep trying because it's better to try and fail than never try at all as my Mom used to always say." Sound advice! Then she answers his question, "And no, it's just us." Felicity shakes her head, tilting it as she keeps her eyes on him.

It's also a hint, at least to Akira. Brandon wants to ask her out but hasn't gotten up the courage yet. Why else did he mention he's still looking for someone? This time, it's the beautiful Asian who answers him, "We are not set up in Los Angeles, no. We'll be fine with a hot--"

Felicity interrupts her work partner, gritting her teeth but smiling as to indicate Akira is not making the best decision here, "We can't 'afford' a hotel right now, Akira!" Her beautiful pools of blue eyes shift from Akira to Brandon and back again as she hisses out those words between her perfect set of white teeth, "Don't look a gift horse in the mouth." The meaning behind those words, and a wise proverb, is conveyed as Akira takes a deep breath. Slightly annoyed at the blonde, she does an immediate 180 turn as she locks eyes with Brandon again.

Giving Brandon a nod of her head, she then changes her mind, "We have no where to stay so we'll be honored to accept your invitation to stay at your home until we get one of our own. Thank you, Brandon San."

Felicity wonders how Brandon would react if he only knew that, technically, Akira is well over a hundred years old? It's an amusing thought, making her smile but she quickly breaks out of her reverie as to not bring attention to herself.

@vanguard_prime:

The downward spiral began with mech piloted power armor from China when the police got a huge boost in manpower from their new toys. Over the proceeding days, weeks and months, the Heroes for Hire Inc. became more and more obsolete. The very idea almost laughable. Everything they did a police officer piloting a mech suit of armor could do better, faster and more efficiently. Sure, Starlight could outperform them on a one-on-one basis but she was a person of one against an army. The ending was inevitable.

Where once the phones rang off the hook, now they lay silent. Money had flown almost like a green river but now it's dried up. Another month and Akira will have no choice but shut the doors for good because she doesn't have the money to pay for the office and everything else. All the potential jobs have now gone to the police thanks to that infernal mech armor. Akira hated that armor because it took all her clients away. Even the so called loyal ones.

Over the past few days, Akira had to make their food and water supply stretch. For the third time she had to dip into their dwindling savings account just to pay the bills and buy the things necessary in order to draw breath and live. She brainstormed ways to get new clients with her work partner, Felicity, but every attempt only gained partial success and only at first before they both had to start from square one all over again. Now both of them are running out of ideas and things are getting more and more desperate.

Finally, an offer is made one day and a meeting is scheduled. A date set as well as a time of day. Akira isn't sure she's willing to go through with it, but she tells Felicity to draw up the legal papers anyway as the movers come and begin to pack everything. Both of them are waiting in the conference room as they hear the blue and golden clad hero mutter something about legal papers.

Akira Hoshi, or better known as Starlight, places her hands on her hips, giving the man who just entered a once over with her brown eyes. She is not impressed. Her face placid, she speaks with a flat tone, "Legal papers ensure both parties are treated fairly, Mr.?" She ends the statement in a question as she asks for his name.

Felicity pushes up her glasses, pressing both her lips into each other until they vanish into her mouth. How Akira treats others is so infuriating! Pushing the stick on her wheelchair around and forward, she maneuvers herself around the conference table until she pulls right up to Vanguard with a sunny disposition and a smile on her face, hand extended in a handshake, "Hello, I'm Felicity Sullivan. You may have spoken to me on the phone some days ago, this is Akira Hoshi, my work partner. Don't mind her icy demeanor, we've both been having a rough time lately. It's nice to meet you!" She says cheerfully, already being the apparent opposite in personality to Akira who looks on trying not to look bored.
