    It had been a little over a week or so since Bel had seen or heard anything from, Aisha, the Cheer Squads team captain, and her friend. The first time Aisha had missed group practice, Bel hadn't given it too much thought. However when she failed to show up for the game, leaving Bel along with her teammates scrambling to modify the routine and handle it the best they could was when she started to become somewhat worried.

    In fact, everything had just been a niggling sense of unease until Bel had talked to Patty and found out that she too had not seen Aisha lately, and that inhabitants from the floodplains had been seen arriving on the island. A fact which definitely troubled Bel - she knew Aisha had had some problems with her parents, and now she had a bad feeling the arrival of the floodplains people and Aisha's disappearance were somehow related.

    Deciding that something needed to be done, Bel asked (among others) the other members of the cheer squad to meet her after last class at a trendy diner located down by the wharf to discuss the disappearance of their team leader and also see if anyone knew anything about her whereabouts.


    As per usual, no set posting order.

    Oh thank God, this place has WiFi.

    Traveling over the the line from the dinner’s ISP to its wireless modem, Eliza appeared outside the door to the dinner in a pop of static and a slight flash of light. Cellular signals could be pretty spotty at the wharf, and she was worried she wouldn’t be able to attend this surprise meeting in person. But with this strong a WiFi signal, she didn’t even need to project from her smartwatch. One obstacle down. She pulled open the door and entered.

    Heart-shaped eyes swept the room for Bel, even as he reached out with her technopathy to look for her phone. Had Eliza arrived first? Maybe hitching a ride on a fiber optic cable had been a mistake...

    Stretching Kaya stepped out of a small puff of dark sweet smelling smoke. Blinking a few times as she had a little bit of a boring day. Looking around she found the diner that was mentioned. Though she had only been with the cheerleaders for only a very short period of time, she had still been invited along. Though up to this point she hadn't really done anything to stand out so she wasn't quite sure if the others really knew her well.

    Looking about Kaya was kind of wondering if maybe she had gotten here to early? The Demoness was about ready to teleport away again when she saw someone that she did know at least from a far. Entering the Diner easily enough Kaya came up behind the smaller female, leaning forward to peak around their shoulder at a safe distance to not be creepy. "Uh hey. it was...... Eliza right? I'm assuming we both were told to meet Bel here?" The demoness tried to give a friendly smile. being much taller and bigger woman she was attempting to try be as friendly as possible.

    Aedes took her time mosey her way to the diner. In her mind the meeting wont start up until she arrives anyway. As she stood in front of the diner, she checked her phone to make sure she was in the right place. Confirming the address, she collapses her umbrella, removes her sunglasses and hurries inside. She looks around, finding a few familiar faces and moves her way over the fellow members of her cheer squad.

    "Alright so I'm here now, can we get started or what? Also what does a run down little place even have?" said Aedes as she settles into a seat, not really bothering to do the usual introductions as she starts looking through the menu.

    As the girls arrived, Bel waved them over to the table she was sitting at. She smiled at each of them individually as they sat down and asked each girl how they were doing and then if they wanted anything to eat or drink. She was having a plate of fries with gravy and a vanilla milkshake, her Britishness shining through as she added vinegar and salt to her potatoes.

    "Hello, Aedes, glad you could make it," Bel greeted her teammate calmly, knowing what she was like and simply ignoring her snarkiness. "The food here, especially the milkshakes, are really good. And they cater to special diets," she informed her.

    "Eliza, Kaya, did you two want anything before we get down to business?" she asked them again quite purposefully.

    "Mhrmmm hrmmmm..." hummed Aedes, acknowledging Bel though her eyes continued to scan the menu. Just as Bel said there was a section just for those for unique diets. Vegan, cannibal, metal eater... a surprising number of items for just about any being imaginable.

    "Alright well I am going to get... the Blood Chiller!" announced Aedes as she sets her menu down with a content expression on her face. Normally she just go with blood bag or something to quench her thirst but something about blood infused milkshake seemed like a delightful treat too opportune to pass up. "So what is this business you want to go on about anyway? Referring to our gloriously absent leader?"

    Hearing the voice of Bel Kaya turned and smiled. "Ah! Bel there you are!" The Demoness' smile full of teeth and quite sharp she walked over to Bel. When hearing the other girl ask if Kaya wanted anything before things became serious. "Oh no love, I'm full for now. I also think if we got up to such machinations among the public there would be a few who would be jealous... and I think it would be unprofessional of me to have such an evening with a new friend..." Kaya paused as she was about to sit down though and blinked a second.

    "Or... oh, you meant normal food didn't you? Sorry. Well, I wouldn't mind a glass of water for now. I'm quite full right now." She shrugged unperturbed by what she had said. "Though I'm willing to wait if anyone else would like to grab a bite"

    “Yep, I’m Eliza,” she responded to Kaya’s question, flashing the taller girl a smile. “Lemme guess, my eyes gave it away.”

    Eliza was thankful for the arrival of Aedes and Bel waving them over, because it gave her a reason to pull her eyes off of Kaya. The taller girl was Hawt with a capital H, and Eliza did not need the distraction right now.

    Biting her tongue to keep from flirting, Eliza took a seat across from Kaya. “ ‘Normal food?’ ” Eliza repeated. “What do you normally— know what? That’s none of my business. Sorry.”

    Eliza buried her face in the menu. She didn’t know what half these items were, and didn’t want to spend the time searching for the info online. Aedes made her order, and Eliza followed suit. “Chocolate milkshake. Large.” she said simply, before poking her head back out from behind the menu to wink at Bel. “I hear they’re good.”

    Her order thus submitted, she turned her full attention back to the table. “I know I’m the New Girl on the squad, but I have to ask. Isn’t the procedure in this kinda thing— a suddenly absent cheer captain — to simply elect a new one?”

    Once everyone had placed their orders - which were served to them almost immediately thanks to the benefits of food industry magic - Bel listened to Eliza's question and then nodded before answering. "Hopefully, that we won't need to do that," she told the group.

    "But originally, the chain of command was Aisha, Konpeito and then me.." she explained as she turned her milkshake around in her hands. "However, now that Aisha is AWOL, and Kon is no longer part of the squad, I guess I am in charge until she comes back... which will be soon hopefully," she confessed as she looked at each of the girls in turn.

    "I was also wondering if any of you had talked to Aisha at all, or have any idea of where she might be at the moment?' Bel asked her teammates, wondering if she was just imagining the lowkey feeling she was having right now that something was not right.

    Once Eliza sat down Kaya smiled. "Let's just say that I don't mind watching you walk Eliza." Chuckling when they asked the Demoness what they ate, Kaya didn't answer immediately only giving Eliza a insightful wink. "Oh I'm sure you can imagine all the ways I get my fill." At the same time as she said that the tip of her long tail, hidden by the table between the two of them, gently moved against Eliza's legs.

    Once everyone had gotten what they wanted, Kaya getting her water as well, she turned to Bel as they explained that their glorious leaders were now missing. It made the Demoness raise an eyebrow. "Could something have happened to them? I haven't seen them or heard from them for a while." With a sigh Kaya leaned back into her seat. "I mean, I'm still new. So I didn't know them all that well. I have no idea what could have happened to them."
