pinokosthewife: a happy, smiling Pinoko (Default)

La la dideedaa...

[Pinoko calmly sweeps the floor with her broom, humming along to a tune. She's wearing a frilly little apron and a kerchief of a matching colour to keep her hair back.

What a peaceful morning! It's just a bit lonely, though, since she's the only one here right now.

Oh, well, she'd better get the place cleaned up and tidy for whenever her darling returns! She's not sure where he's decided to run off this time, but she'll be keeping house, keeping dinner warm, and returning calls until he's back.]

[ Yes. Peaceful.

And quiet. Suspiciously quiet, as Cloud attempts to sneak in through the front door without drawing any attention (perhaps not the greatest strategy, but there aren't a ton of options and the last time he went the upstairs window route, things got way out of hand far faster than anyone could have guessed).

It's just entirely too early, this morning, and it's been a long, long night of blowing stuff up and running from the police totally legitimate business.

(Hopefully Pinoko hasn't been watching the news.)

(But she probably has, hasn't she?)

(Well, he definitely didn't have anything to do with that bombing, last night. Which is why he isn't covered in considerably more oil and soot than when he left, the previous afternoon.)

It's really too bad there's no completely silent way to set down that giant sword he's always carrying around. If that creak in the floorboards didn't give him away, the resounding thump certainly does. ]

kinetosis: (oh crap I think I know that guy)
From: [personal profile] kinetosis
[ Well, that's no good.

He shrugs back in surprise as soon he turns and spots her heading his way, already, only just managing to suppress a wince.

Yeah, those brooms are killer. (Not even gonna mention the mop.) ]

The usual.

[ He's trying to play it cool, of course, tone and expression matching: perfectly bored. ]

kinetosis: (went up to you after)
From: [personal profile] kinetosis
[ Sorry, Pinoko, but he's an inconsiderate jerk with all the subtlety of a sledgehammer. (For Disc 1, anyway.)

He either doesn't notice or simply can't sense the severity of that strain in her entirely too pleasant tone - it's a toss up, really. ]

Yeah? I didn't hear anything.

[ Actually, he didn't hear anything but a high-pitched ringing, for about two whole minutes after that bomb went off, but it was kind of a reprieve, honestly, with Barret swearing up a storm over something or other.

But probably nothing to do with his crappy attitude. ]

[ Oh boy, here we go...

He doesn't see that shin kick coming, but the handle never makes contact - Cloud's unearthly quick, and hopefully she wasn't too attached to that particular broom, because it splinters a little in his grip, before he chucks it aside.

All right. She gets a second or two to climb him like a tree before he attempts to pry her off by the scruff of her neck.

(Geez...) ]

Get off of me. I'm fine.

From: [personal profile] kinetosis
[ Sigh.

He'd roll his eyes, if it wasn't so much effort. For now, holding her determinedly out at arm's length will have to suffice. ]

Hmph. You were worried about me?

[ He pulls his free hand back to his hip and strikes a cocky pose; yeah, he's laughing at you, Pinoko, even if he isn't smiling or making a sound. ]

Who do you think I am?

[ Not somebody who can't keep his head on straight. Surely. ]

Except aloud, this time. As his shoulders sag and he shakes his head - hopeless. He'd ask himself how he got into this absurd situation, at all, but.

Let's face it, he willfully stopped keeping track of his ridiculous life a looong time ago. ]


[ If he wasn't so hungry and she wasn't approximately the size of his left boot - well, he still wouldn't start a fight with a girl, but maybe he could at least pretend not to be so thoroughly cowed as he turns to follow her (reluctantly). ]

kinetosis: (it seems to go the same way)
From: [personal profile] kinetosis
[ She'll get away with that one, because he's in I Don't Care mode something fierce, and even if he could purport to be more knowledgeable on the topic of random foreign phrases people like to spout, he'd still be too busy pretending not to notice to bother.

The food looks good, though, and as soon as he's taken a seat, he's helping himself to everything within arm's reach (as insufferably calmly as possible). No need to ask what any of it is - soldiers have to eat worse stuff, in the field.

...And in any Shinra-sanctioned cafeteria, too, come to think of it. ]

kinetosis: (I want a meaning)
From: [personal profile] kinetosis
[ Don't underestimate how little he cares, Pinoko!!

It totally doesn't even matter if he looks half as hungry as he is; terrorism really works up an appetite, after all. ]

...It's- Good?

[ Because that's what she's asking, right? And it's okay to answer around a mouthful of food, probably, before returning to his regularly scheduled disregard. ]
