AMARANTA VALERIA | BURNING LIONESS

The hour of reckoning was near. Amaranta had committed to a statement she knew full well was a lie, but since she was far too prideful to admit that to her boss, she decided to carry on with it as though it were the genuine truth. Indeed, as far as Khaana was concerned, Vanyel was her boyfriend. Of course, to ensure that she didn't look stupid, she texted Vanyel ahead of time as she prepared herself in her room.

The text read as follows:

[4:30:24]: So, uh... I told my boss about ya. Told her u were the one who told me how to cook. Also told her u were my boyfriend. Sorry about that one. Ya mind doin' me a solid and pretendin' to be my man for a day? Promise to make up for it ya when we meet again. How's training me and showin' off ur martial arts sound? <3

Hoping that he would accept, Amaranta sighed softly as she wore an expression of confidence. Of all the courses she wanted this day to follow, looking stupid was the worst-case scenario. Now, with an appropriate set of clothing she found acceptable, she readied herself, exited the house after Khaana, and opened a Garganta as the woman accompanied her.

In short order, they were at his house now, a comfy little place in Japan. Nothing much to scoff at, but then, a house was a house. As long as you were fed and clothed, who cared? Anyway, for the first time, rather than kicking his door down, she politely knocked at it with a playful grin creasing her lips.

"Babe, it's me, Amaranta. I brought my boss for a visit. She says she wanted to meet ya."

Under normal circumstances, perhaps Khaana would have behaved a little differently. Perhaps not quite pushed this whole shindig so far.

Oh the lie? Yea she fucking knew this cat didn't have no goddamn boyfriend. At least she didn't imagine that would be the case. At least not in the literal sense of the word. Did she believe that amaranta might be stringing some guy along under the pretense of the two of them beating the tar out of eachother? Sure. And perhaps if Amaranta had attempted a different angle she would have not been so incredulous. But teaching her to cook? That was a bit too odd for a hookup reason and Khaana had immediately grown suspicious.

After all, Amaranta was not so pedestrian. Some pretty guy teaching her to cook and they wound up dating? That sounded downright cute and romantic. It was riDICULOUS. It was a kind of story that was so adorable that it seemed absurd on the big cat.

Soooooo why was she doing this?

Because well, what if it WAS true? Or rather, what if Amaranta was misunderstanding a situation? Plenty of times the feline had shown her own limited understanding of huma culture, and so there was .... a non-insignificant portion of her that did worry if perhaps Amaranta was....terrorizing some poor guy into some weird situation that she considered dating. And frankly, she only grew more concerned the longers this went on. After all, Amaranta wasn't really the lying type. She was too proud for that. So what WAS going on? The entire way, she kept up a calm guise, making small talk, but as they got closer and closer to their destination, Khaana began to get concerned.

This was.... not a bad place. It was nothing like any of her penthouses, but it still seemed like a real house and not some shed dressed up for Ama's purposes. Was she for real taking her to some dude's house? And all the more, she furrowed her brows as she watched Amaranta knock instead of just letting herself in. What the fuck had she missed?

"You know you can just call me Khaana, you don't have to keep introducing me as your boss." She added. Not that it had ever bothered her before, but something about being shown to Ama's boyfriend as 'her boss' felt a little off. JEsus what kinda dude was going to walk out of there? Some kinda bodybuilder? An Arrancar? She could not for the life of her even imagine what her type was, and she watched intently, her Reikaku tense and alert as she felt the guy making his way towards the door. Thank god she hadn't chosen to go fancy. She had almost brought her fur lined jacket, but she figured a more lax look would be safer. Just a nice loose jacket and cargo pants, the faintest hint of a tank top under the jacket, and of course an eyepatch to cover her missing eye. No real 'casual'-ing that up.

VANYEL XIAOYANG

Given that Amaranta had agreed to spar with him and show off her powers the next time they were able to meet up, Vanyel wasn't too surprised to see a text on his phone. However, it starting with "So, uh..." in the preview was not exactly promising. Setting aside his whisk and bowl, he sighed and picked up the phone.

Reading the first two sentences, he didn't really see the problem. What, she told her boss about him? What was the problem with that? Well, other than her potentially scouting him for whatever reason, that'd be an issue. He didn't really see much of an issue with her talking about where she learned to cook from, that was...pretty damn natural, he figured.

However, he read the third sentence just as he took a drink of water, causing a spit take. She told her boss what?! Wait, she wanted him to pretend to be her boyfriend for the day? Were they coming here? A knock at the door gave him the answer. Groaning and facepalming, Vanyel turned the heat off the stove, turned the large wok's handle inward, turned off the music he had playing, threw his apron over one of the chairs, and headed to the door.

At the very least, the brat had the decency to knock this time. He sure didn't want to make a habit out of replacing the doorknob, or, god forbid, the entire damn door. Given that he wasn't on the job, he was dressed pretty casually. Black tank-top, blue jeans, shoes at the door. He dusted himself off from any corn starch that might have magically stuck to his clothes, and opened the door.

Just before it would reveal him, however, energy flowed into his eyes, causing the ordinary diamond color to glow a bit brighter as Reikaku was forced into his eyes, visualizing the energy signatures outside into colored auras. Amaranta's, unsurprisingly, was white -- she was an Arrancar, after all.

"I'm surprised you actually decided not to break my door for a third time."

His eyes went over to the additional party, his head tilting lightly to the side. Shorter than he was expecting, a few inches smaller than he was. But, what was even more curious was the mix of white and yellow from the other party. Human, but also not. Then again, he shouldn't really have been surprised that an Arrancar finding work would lead to anything remotely ordinary.

His eyes flicked back to Amaranta, blinking in-between, his eyes dimming as he went to look at her, before gesturing inside as he turned around.

"Qǐngjìn. Shoes off. You're lucky, I was just about to start makin' lunch."

AMARANTA VALERIA | BURNING LIONESS

"What? Would you prefer the other nickname I give you when I introduce you?"

Amaranta replied with a playful snark to her tone, a soft chortle falling from her lips as she waited for the man of the hour to open the door.

When he did, she grinned from ear to ear as she gazed down at him, hoping he would accept her terms. After all, her pride was riding on the line, and the thought of having Khaana laugh at her was far too much to bear.

When he was in full view, Amaranta stroked his shoulders as he welcomed them in. Even if she was playing a role, she wasn't going to pretend to be some suckup to her "boyfriend". Maintaining her prideful disposition was an essential aspect of the Burning Lioness, after all, for better or worse.

"Don't worry, I felt generous today. Of course, I also didn't want to have an open door while we all hang out today."

Removing her shoes as instructed, Amaranta stepped in, wrapped an arm around his shoulder and smiled at him, maintaining her bold grin.

"What are we havin' for lunch, babe?"

An unamused glance flicked in Amaranta's direction at the reply she got about the nickname. She didn't bother with a snide response, especially not when the 'boyfriend' in question walked out into the door and promptly went all spooky scary on them.

Oh? some kinda ..pesquisa. She made a face as she ....smelled an odd smell in the air as he did whatever to sense them. What a weird sensation. Almost like she was being sniffed. ,But she didn't let that show too much. "Khaana. Pleasure to-"

She raised a brow as her introduction was cut short by the man curtly informing them to remove their footwear before entering the house. Well, she supposed if ever there was a boyfriend fo Amarantas, she guessed it wasn't too surprising that they wouldn't be one for polite introductions or greetings. Without so much as a hello, the man promptly slipped back inside with Amaranta in tow. She followed along, gently peeling her sneakers off with her ankles and then taking a moment to let her good eye sweep about and take in the man's dwelling. She was only passively paying attention to how Amaranta was ... engaging with him. She wasn't exactyl here to stare at PDA, and frankly, regardless of this was fake or not, she didn't want to encourage Amaranta to feel like she needed to prove herself.

Last thing she needed was the Lioness trying to fuck the poor guy in the middle of the livingroom to prove a point.

She remained silent for now, and let Amaranta do the talking for now.

VANYEL XIAOYANG

...Oh, shit. He was expecting to exchange pleasantries when they were inside. So, as Khaana went to introduce herself, Vanyel suddenly froze for a moment. Plus, given that Amaranta said that she had told this woman about him already, he figured that she already knew his name, but, it didn't seem like that was the case. Fuck. He turned around, a mixture of awkwardness and guilt on his face as he rubbed the back of his head.

"...Right, sorry. Amaranta said she told you about me, so, I figured you already knew my name, and...I'd also figured that we'd talk more over lunch. But, uh, Vanyel Xiaoyang. Nice...to meet you."

Yeah, this already wasn't a good first impression. Internally facepalming as he turned back around to guide them in, Vanyel's eye twitched as Amaranta suddenly wrapped an arm around him.

"Garlic chicken. Won't take long, sauce cooks quick with the chicken, and they're bite-sized pieces. Have some rice cooking too, should be ready before the chicken at this rate. Make yourselves at home. We can eat at the table or on the couch if you'd like."

He reached to grab his previously discarded apron and tie it around himself, brushing Amaranta's arm off him and, if there weren't any other questions or comments, he'd get back to work. It'd only take a few minutes for the food to be ready, and Vanyel would get a bowl, plate, and utensils for each of them, before handing them out and sitting down in either location, not like they were far away.

"So, the big cat has a job? What kinda work?"

AMARANTA VALERIA | BURNING LIONESS

"Garlic chicken and rice, huh? I prepared stir fry with rice for this damned brat yesterday. Not to toot my own horn, but it was so good she wiped out her entire plate within seconds. Knowing who I've learned from, this sounds like it'll be pretty damn delicious."

Ignoring any errors on her part simply by playing it off, she remained relatively heedless to her hand being brushed away from his shoulder. Public affection wasn't inherently crucial to her strategy here, and she imagined pressing the issue might make this short bastard blow a fuse or two. Respecting him enough to avoid that, she simply flashed a playful grin as her eyes observed his dwellings. There were a few notes here and there that caught her eye, but paid them no mind for the moment.

Following his instruction, she neatly sat at the table, crossing one leg over the other as he posed his question. Addressing the question without hesitation, Amaranta answered bluntly since their agreement was fundamentally simple. Zero possibility for confusion.

"Me and that overgrown dinosaur are something akin to bodyguards for Khaana over here. In return for housing and paying us cash, which we both use to explore the world on our own time, we go out and assist her during her hollow hunting seasons. Whenever she's in danger, we also have to make sure she's well protected... most of the time. Honestly? It's not too dissimilar to your work with uh... Gracen arms, right, babe?"

The Cat Who Cried Boyfriend[Amaranta, Khaana, Vanyel]  J7mmc8gxre7

The delayed introduction drew her attention, and she looked back to the young man quickly enough that she could see the sheepishness with which he offered his reciprocation. She smiled very slightly, a brief flicker of mirth as she appreciated the response. Oh? This wasn't quite what she expected, but this also had its merits. A more straight laced guy, but who gets flustered in social situations? She also noticed that Amaranta wasn't quite eye-fucking the guy either. Maybe she just was attracted to him more...genuinely? Was she fond of him for his personality? Hm.

The discussion of the food she stayed out of as Amaranta bragged just a little. Expected. Though the question about their relationship as
"Boss" and "Subordinate" certainly caused her to raise a brow. Did Amaranta not talk about her? She supposed she probably wouldn't. She provided certainly, but it seemed that she wasn't quite such a massive hallmark in Amaranta's life that she'd already told the young man. A bit ... disheartening. But well. Old as Amaranta was, she supposed it made sense. No doubt, she was just one of many humans who would live and die around her. Well, not that Khaana knew how long she could expect to live. Questions for ... well when she wasn't with company.

"Sounds delicious. And thanks for teaching her how to cook. It's kinda nice seeing her having a hobby that doesn't wreck buildings." She noted with a calm smile. "That's.... more or less the situation. I don't always need the assistance. But I give them the stuffthey need to enjoy their time on earth. integrate. And so on. And in exchange they do what I need them to do. Usually thats just hollow patrols and accompanying me when I go out to hunt. But technically it branches into other areas. Just never been something I really needed to do otherwise. Speaking of Kanako. Have they met?" She asked Amaranta , gesturing to Vanyel.

If this guy was nervous about a little social Faux Pas. She'd pay to see how he handled the big cuddly lizard.

All the same, she sat herself down wherver they decided to dine and tilted her head just a bit. "Gracen Arms. You guys did a bit of work in Africa right? I admit I'm not too familiar with you guys outside of that incident. What exactly IS Gracen arms?"
