    Elisa was at the track. It was dark, and only the moon seemed to illuminate it.

    She had changed out of her skirt, and into a proper tracksuit. If Tai was to appear, he would find her stretching her leg out on a fence.

    With what she knew about Tai, she didn't have a good chance. That's why she needed an edge, and that was to use her power.

    Nigel was at the sidelines. When he heard that she was going to be competing, He decided that he was coming along, and frankly, Elisa was glad for the support. They hadn't bonded yet, so she couldn't use his power, but just his presence was nice.

    Tai strode up to the track as he and his soon to be opponent had agreed upon, admittedly a bit jittery due to the excitement and anticipation of his first real contest; the other had been a spectacular failure, all things considered. That being said, he had an even record technically, and now he was only looking to improve that. Noticing Elisa stretching from a little way off, he jogged over to join her, throwing up a peace sign as he did. "Hey, dope that you came. This should be pretty fun."

    He flashed her a toothy grin and looked behind him at his Regalia that had accompanied him. She'd given her name as Cecily, and was a bit...eccentric, in his opinion. That being said, he was certainly interested in the power she had to offer, and to that end intended on bonding with her if he could. He tugged off his t-shirt and tossed it aside in favor of the thin tank top underneath, starting up with some stretching of his own. "Oh, yeah. One more thing to mention that I didn't get a chance to back there. My Regalia, uh...I'm trying to bond with her, but the thing is I don't think she'll be too interested in this contest unless there are some extra stakes. Something embarrassing."

    "Yeah, it should be." She said, hold her hands behind her back. Tai really was getting Psyched up for this.

    "I'm sure we can think of something embarassing. Anything in particular we need to have?" Elisa didn't have a problem with helping him bond with Cecily. "I probably have a few ideas already, just saying." She grinned.

    "So how far are we running?" This was important. She had to know exactly how many times she had to stop time to even get close.

    Tai cracked his neck and hummed thoughtfully at that, not entirely sure what a good distance would be. "Hm...well, I mean, we could just do one standard lap around the track, that's four hundred meters. Or two, or however many you feel like. There's also the straightaway track for the hundred meter dash, so that works too." He eyed her for a moment, thinking back to how quick she'd been in the community center.

    His mind drifted back to the issue of the loss condition, since that did have to be figured out, and Elisa seemed to have thought up something she found interesting. "I mean, hell, I'm down for most things. Hit me with it, what'd you have in mind? It takes a lot to make me show my shame, so you'll have to think of something good."

    "Lets do the hundred meter dash. It'll take less time." Elisa said, doing the math in her head. That's about twenty times she needed to stop time. She could do it.

    He was up for most things? "Uh, walk around in a frilly dress?" She suggested. Elisa knew he had a gender swap charm, so it wasn't that bad. But it was worth the idea and even the idea of a monkey girl in such a dress was funny. "Do you have anything you'd like me to do?"

    Tai eyed Elisa up and down at the suggestion for his potential punishment, quirking a brow and smirking lightly. "I mean...alright, look. I can totally do that, that ain't a problem. I'm just sayin', if you really want to make me red in the face, actually legitimately embarrass me? You're gonna have to do better than that. You don't have to, it's just...I don't want you to shortchange yourself."

    Oh man, something he'd have to make her do? Hm...honestly, he wasn't even the faintest bit sure what to suggest; he didn't have a good enough gauge on her personality. Something that'd embarrass her; it wasn't quite as simple as it sounded to just decide. "I mean, uhh...I guess, like...go up to the first person you see and give them a kiss? I dunno. Just thinking up some classic sophomoric shit here. I ain't feelin' the most creative today."

    Well, what does embarrass you?" She asked him, frowning. ELisa had no clue about it, as she only spoke to him a few times, and only had the barest part of his personality.

    A bit cliched, wasn't it? To kiss a random on the street? She had to smile a bit at that. "I'm sorry, but a kiss isn't that embarrassing for me."

    Tai scratched his chin at that, stretching and rolling his shoulders as he thought up something that'd be good enough for each of them. Finally, something hit him, and he actually blushed just the faintest bit as he leaned in and suggested it to Elisa, his voice a bit lower than usual. Pulling back and letting her consider, he went back to stretching, focusing on the match at hand. "So, uh, it's just whoever gets to the finish line first, yeah? That's it?" Truthfully, he'd prepared a possible contingency plan, one of his clones hiding just out of sight but actually closer to the finish line than he himself was.

    She leaned in, listening to Tai's latest suggestion. "Oh," She said with a start, her cheeks reddened. That was not something she wanted to do. "Guess I can't lose now, can I?"

    Moving, to her starting position, Elisa answered him. "Yeah, whichever of us crosses that line first." Doing some calculations, Elisa knew if she had a quick enough reaction time, she could get close to him, but she couldn't beat him.

    Not wanting to be the one that got the punishment though, Elisa began to think of ways to give herself an edge.
