    Yes, Joshua was walking through a suburbia he had no business occupying. There was nothing for him here, save people he might meet who might wish him harm, or wish to stop and speak. These weren't the reason he walked through the suburbs, though the possibility was a nice diversion from his real purpose. Why he was out here was a much simpler, and much more violent reason. There was someone he needed to meet and beat the stuffing out of for various reasons, none of which had to do with cleaning up the streets or making the suburbs a better place, since once he met this person he would either be leading them beyond city limits or working out some other way to avoid calling legal attention to their interaction.

    Where were you Sho? It had been much, much longer than the two weeks Joshua had expected you to wait before coming back. You might be slightly more intelligent than he was giving you credit for, to wait long enough that Joshua had to seek you out rather than the other way around. But he would find you, and one of the two would escape either close to dead, or very dead indeed. Though this was, as mentioned, not an excuse to prematurely end Sho's existence, he was still needed, though for what, Joshua wasn't telling.

    "Where are you, my dear Sho?"

    Joshua wrote:"Where are you, my dear Sho?"

    "You think you get to just call me whenever you want, you hopeless hectopascal?" Came a voice from the right of Joshua. Look in the alley... you'd been being watched, and it wasn't recent; he'd been watching you for a long time. In hindsight, it may have been foolish... but that's the way it goes, sometimes. In the alley, reaching up nearly to the top of the buildings, was your expected garbage pile. Coincidentally placed? Oh, not at all. These things were literally all over the place, in nearly EVERY alley. He'd just followed you the entire way. How had you not sensed him? Well, simply enough, he'd masked his presence. It wasn't perfect, of course... but it was something. He'd done it by foregoing his powers temporarily, and forming solely in the RG.

    He watched you, not moving an inch. He was waiting for you, Composer. Had you come to die? He'd gladly send you to your grave. Heh, of course, he knew exactly that he had no hope of doing that. He knew he could gain, however... after the last battle, he'd become slightly stronger. If he lost, he'd become stronger, and he could possibly one-up the Composer, just when he was thought to be someone that couldn't do amount to anything. It all depended on whether you would count him out for the count or not... of which, he absolutely hoped it would be the former.

    Because he'd be damned if he was going to attempt to limit break all of his Taboo God Powers at the possibility of losing. Only when he was the Composer could he do such a thing, and right now he was not.

    Sho thought Joshua wasn't aware he was being watched? Joshua was always watching, but let certain people get away with their delusions for their health. The more deluded individuals were useful in that state. And yes, Joshua obliged Sho's desire by glancing into the alleyway as he passed, and stopping to look up at the garbage pile. He hadn't known he was being followed, but when Sho paused long enough to stop atop the garbage pile near enough to be seen by the naked eye, Joshua found him before reaching the corner. On the other hand, Joshua had a very easy time concluding that Sho was following him, after all they had very little to do here, upon the Breach. Predictable, that's what they both were.

    Was Sho ready to have his shit beaten in again? Probably, but Joshua would never say it that way, and Sho would never talk about it that way either. Joshua had no problem with Sho gaining tiny incremental power boosts, because he gained a lot more than that every time they clashed. "But I do get to call you whenever I want. You're here after all, aren't you?" He turned to face the alley more fully and set himself up in his taunting pose, with one hand curled around his torso and the other cupping his chin with a gentle smile on his lips. "Do you want to try to kill me again? I'd like it if you tried."

    "I'm not your subordinate anymore. Besides, I don't take orders or run to the knees of a pathetic zero like you." Sho placed his fist in his hand, his grin visible from where he was. He knew full well that he held no cards to Joshua... but he was wondering whether or not Joshua would forcibly initiate offence towards him if he didn't do anything. Joshua had come here wanting a fight, and had come here expecting Sho to try to beat the shit out of him... but Sho was more willing to try for something else this time. Sho was looking for ways to further observe the Composer. Situations had changed, long since changed.

    "Of course I want to kill you, decimal. Doesn't mean I'm going to right now." He replied to Joshua, observing the Composer to see how he'd react. Sho was staring at Joshua, still grinning with his hands behind his back in his usual pose, not bothered at all with how he came off to anyone. The man didn't move from the spot he was in, despite Joshua's claim of will to fight. Whereas they both may have will to fight, Sho wasn't moving this time. Nooo, if you wanted a fight, you'd have to go to him. He'd fight back...

    But would you be Reaper enough to throw the first punch?

    You'd think that the one who was supposedly on the good side of the equation wouldn't be willing to throw the first punch, wouldn't you? Except when you consider what the good side of the equation was willing to do for its beliefs. Not everything is bright and cheerful when you consider the pearly gates. As such, Joshua wasn't nearly as opposed to starting a fight as you might otherwise assume given his pedigree. What he was however, was unsure how Sho had initiated that safety barrier from their first encounter. Given some time to seriously consider it, he could no doubt figure it out, so on that note he stepped from the beaten path into the alley that the garbage pile had consumed so much of, to better talk to the one that stood so far above him but was at the same time so small.

    "You're not my subordinate? I'm pretty sure you still are. Otherwise, why would you still be trying to take my title? You can't be Composer without being a Reaper first." Liar Liar pants on fire. Looking up at Sho's jaunty, usual pose, Joshua adopted his own, complete with lazy smirk. If anyone were to chance upon them, together they would almost resemble a game CG, if the walls of the alley had slightly more graffiti and a grittier feel. "You're actually going to show restraint? Maybe you do have a chance of not being left for dead under the wreck of a car this time. But maybe not, since I know it now." Ending that little speech with an upturned corner of the mouth and mild snigger, Joshua waited for a response, conscious of the weight of the revolver in his pocket, but with hands nowhere near it for the moment.

    "So zetta slow. That's what usurping is about. I don't have to be a member of your little organisation to be a Reaper! That's like saying some zero looking to be head in a company can't just come in at the top level if they get rid of everything in their way first! And you're the only thing in the way, you factoring obstacle." Sho clenched his fist, giving Joshua a menacing-ish grin. It was full of ambition, and to continue down the path he had been given. He was an insane mathematician that was set on killing Joshua. Not too healthy a mindset.

    "Heheheheheh." Sho chuckled as you spoke. Was he intimidated? Not really. Was he aware he'd blown his chance earlier? Oh yes, he was very aware of that. He had to even the ground before he was able to take this kid on. It was infuriating as hell, but he managed. After all, it was his only purpose aside from building garbage piles around the Outer District. Having basically started living in the Outer District, Sho and the local populace had clashed slightly at first, but it hadn't taken long for people to peg him as the type to just hang around anywhere there, and to keep building piles of everything. Stopped it going into the sewers, at least.

    "You hopeless hectopascal." Sho semi-insulted. You could throw the first punch if you wanted, and he'd get his shit pushed in. He was intent to insult you from his tower from right now. Besides, you were in the Outer District. The ISOs wouldn't interfere here. Basically, this is your free pass to go nuts.

    That last point was quite a good one, actually. Unvoiced by Sho, but concluded by Joshua swiftly enough. He was a smart boy, after all. It paid to be the immortal master of so many souls, obviously, otherwise Sho wouldn't care as much as he did. As such, while they continued to banter, a brick slowly and carefully detached itself from the wall of one of the buildings down the alley from Sho, mortar holding it in place crumbling quietly and cascading down the wall as some force pulled it outward and slung it with lethal force at the middle of the garbage tower builder's back. Joshua's taunting grin firmly in place, no outward physical movement to indicate his attack, just that ever so subtle psychic shove, he smirked, and while the brick was hurtling through the air, asked a question. "If that random zero gets rid of everything in the way, what's the point of being at the top? You won't have anything to rule over. Tenho's dead as far as I can figure."

    His hand slid into one of his pockets, not the one with the heavy pistol, but the one with the far more familiar weight of his cellphone and slid it out, flipping it open. He broke his staring match with Sho to glance down at the screen, grin flashing wider momentarily, before he began to fiddle with the buttons, for all appearances ignoring his enemy, except for the telltale projectile, beginning to whistle in its flight as it gained momentum.

    Sho was smacked head-on by the projectile Joshua threw. Thaaaaat had hurt. "F-Factor! You're that strong already?!" Sho looked at him with annoyance and anger burning in his eyes, surprised that Joshua had grown so much since the last time they'd fought. Sure, it'd been quite a while ago, but was it possible to have grown so much? ...Was it odd of him to have grown so little? He'd hardly done anything than plot, build garbage thrones for himself to sit on, and explore. That was literally it.

    Refusing to take that sitting down, Sho hurled more energy balls from his spot on the tower, at Joshua. He wasn't going to go quietly into the night, that he could promise you! Still sat atop his throne, he gave Joshua a sly grin. "Isn't it obvious? I'll build a new Reaper's Game. A better one. If I don't have the pawns I need, I've just gotta make them, hahahaha!" If there was one thing Sho was hellbent on, it was this. But other than that... he had no idea what he would do with his power once he got it.

    Which would likely be the reason he should never have it.

    Oh that adorable stutter. It was almost as if Sho had had a moment of doubt, as though he wasn't as rock solid in his convictions as he might appear to be. That was probably why his shots fizzled so badly and were so easy to dodge, and why the final shot when it hit Joshua didn't hurt all that much. They traveled so slowly through the air it seemed that Joshua had plenty of time to finish his text and slip the phone into his jeans pocket before even starting to need to dodge. Or perhaps he had become faster. Time would tell. "Of course I'm that strong, little Reaper, I'm the Composer," Joshua said, little grin still firmly in place on his lips. The degenerate ranting could do nothing to shake his convictions, just as nothing he said would ever do anything to Sho other than infuriate him.

    His phone still securely in his pocket, the brick rose once again to whip through Sho's location, another two bricks from the same section of wall quietly shaking themselves loose from the failing brick and mortar to wait in a conga-line for the first brick to make its attack, and then to follow suit one after the other, like some sort of well mannered semiautomatic gun, though to attribute them intelligence would be a mistake, as their master was by some accounts a jealous boy.

    Sho noticed Joshua's darting seemed to have as much effort as Joshua had put in as last time, yet he seemed to be all the more fast for his lack of attentiveness. He almost didn't seem to care about it all. Thinking about it, it was all the more likely that he didn't actually care. For as long as Sho had known and wanted to murder in the form of erasure the Composer to steal his title, he'd never known him to particularly care much about anything. He was always laid back, unaffected by much, and even here... he'd started the fight, but was so evidently half-assing the entire thing.

    "You zetta son of a digit! I just haven't caught up to you yet!" Sho argued, being completely and utterly right. Truth was, he hadn't caught up to anyone. He hadn't even tried. He'd try, of course, but for now he was content just sitting here. His active phase had yet to arrive~! He didn't have much time to think about this, however, as he was hit by a brick. "Ow." He commented as the brick brick'd him, and he ducked and dodged it twice more without much effort, proceeding to fire more attacks off at Joshua.

    Joshua will totes get rekt, lol.

    Sho thrusts his palm forward and throws energy balls of purple power at his target. They fade away after being in the air for a while. Alternatively, can shoot a large ball that breaks into many other balls, covering a wider area.

    Half-assing is right. In their first fight, Joshua had never once shifted to his alternate form, even as Sho shifted back and forth at will. In this fight, his phone coming out of his pocket and going back in by turns, while he sometimes watched the Taboo Reaper and sometimes payed more attention to texting, the circumstances were much the same. He didn't have anybody to talk to nowadays, or anybody to pass the light puck to, for that matter. It was a lonely existence, so there really wasn't much point in trying to care. As for the little matter of the light puck, Joshua never really had been one to follow the rules, or one to care that there were rules in the first place, given how far above the rules he thought himself to be.

    That was still true now as a few more of Sho's weak energy bolts hit home, shaking Joshua up barely at all as he dodged a third, and sent the trio of bricks back through Sho's location. "Of course you haven't caught up yet. You're destined to be weaker than me, in every universe we both inhabit, and doesn't that choke you up, poor Sho." Cue the smirk and rudely superior pose, that somehow came across quite fine despite Joshua being some 15 feet lower toward the ground than Sho's solid perch.
