    "But of course." The knight spoke with a small grin. There was...something about this girl that made her question the validity of that claim. Perhaps it was a streak in her that she recognized from somewhere close to her..

    Fancy party...well, she wasn't wrong. It was a dress that she'd worn around the palace quite a bit, though there was a low mumble about 'the ballgowns being worse' before the knight sighed. Even though she seemed to be put off by the thought, she was still smiling to herself faintly. "Anything, really. Though if I'm not in armor, I'm typically wearing as little as possible." It took a moment for Scarlet to realize...that had come out wrong. "Um... Typically when I wasn't training, I was down at the forge with my brother, so I kept a few pairs of beat up clothing. A short shirt or two-" She gestured to a few inches under her chest area. "-with no sleeves, pants with a couple of burn holes, boots... You know. Comfortable things. Though, I have had to fight my way through an army dressed as a harem concubine, before-..." The knight's voice trailed off, then, though a steady pink hue was growing on her face. That was not a pleasant memory. Fuck the desert.

    Despite the affirmative nature of Scarlet's words, the grin seemed to make it clear that the other woman was being a little playful in her agreement. As if she didn't trust Kyoko to be the most lawful teenager in the world! She wouldn't have been offended if it weren't for the fact that Scarlet was right to doubt her. The redhead snorted to herself, smirking openly in a manner that seemed to admit that she could be quite the mischievous one when she wanted to be. You know, when guards weren't involved and all that.

    Kyoko seemed to ignore the implications of Scarlet's words, if only because it meshed rather well with her own style. Magical girl attire aside, she leaned towards hoodie, shorts, and boots. Definitely nothing quite like what the other woman was wearing right now, the velvety dress that stretched all the way to the floor. "Fewer clothes to get in the way." She agreed with a small nod. Made sense to her! Though the mention of a concubine outfit drew a disgusted little sneer. "Eew. That stuff is gross." That was something Kyoko wouldn't touch when it came to clothing. Short shorts were pushing it as it was! Huffing to herself, she folded her arms over her chest. "Seems like that dress will be kind weird to sleep in unless you got like...one of those under-dresses under it to use for a nightgown?"

    That smirk was all too familiar to the knight. It was one that she wore herself, quite often. Granted, she expected she was a bit more of a social outcast than the magical girl before her. After all, Jerrik's passtimes weren't exactly...legal. Or morally correct, in any form. Torture, murder... And she couldn't honestly say she was against it, either. She'd quite enjoyed getting her own payback on a few people...

    Though, when Kyoko's reaction to the concubine outfit surfaced, Scarlet nodded. Profusely. "We were there...maybe five minutes in the palace before the King's 'wives' abducted me." Granted, she'd been the idiot to explore without Jerrik, but...still! "Women there weren't allowed to have weapons, so I was stripped of mine, and...well...stripped. It was the most uncomfortable thing I'd ever had to do. Though they let me have a long shawl, at least. A sheer one. Ugh... And the guy was a creep." A visible shudder shot through the knight. At the very least, his 'wives' were kind enough to leave Scarlet's weapons under the bed for her, just in case she would need to protect herself. Ahhh... They were kind women, in a very unfortunate situation.

    "You know...I didn't think about that...hm..." Scarlet glanced down at her dress, furrowing her brows in thought for a moment. "I guess if worst comes to worst, I could sleep nude... I'd rather not stay in the only clothing I have with me all night and day, repeatedly."

    Wives? Oh boy. The King was one of those people. Kyoko's face only seemed to intensify in her obvious displeasure, especially as Scarlet explained that the women had stripped her of weapons and clothing! "They all should have left you alone! You weren't another wife!" Blech! The knight life wasn't sounding as glamorous as her books made it seem. And why did so many of the guys from Scarlet's home sound so gross? Granted, that was coming from a young teenager but...it all still sounded very disgusting to her ears. Creepy jerks. Arms stiffening over her own shoulder, the redhead snorted derisively. "It sounds like the only way to be safe would be to dress up and pretend to be a guy." It was something some characters had done in the stories she read at least. Helped them to get around without being bothered!

    The idea of a stranger sleeping nude on her couch elicited a much more immature sort of disgust as Kyoko stole a peek at the couch that no doubt would be Scarlet's bed tonight. Granted, the dress definitely didn't seem comfy...and she'd need to wear it tomorrow if they went to the store. Grumbling softly, she glared down at the floor. "Guess I can...give you lots of sheets and stuff to put over the couch." Items that could be easily washed! ...Or thrown out. Either one.

    Pretend to be a man...? Scarlet rolled her eyes a bit, making a dismissive hand wave. "Believe me, I've tried pretending to be a man as well. Though, I also had to pretend I was mute because..." She gestured to her throat, as if implying her voice was too effeminate to pass for a man. "Granted, we weren't sure if that kingdom would be friendly towards a woman in the guard... Turned out we were right. I almost got arrested for impersonating a knight. Fun day..." Scarlet nodded, then, as if it were a fond memory, all the same.

    Though, when the girl appeared outwardly disgusted by her comment of sleeping nude, the knight began to laugh. "Don't worry. I wouldn't go that far in someone else's home. I do have an...underdress..." If that was even the best word for it. Really, the chemise she'd worn under her dress was because she'd expected to stay the night with Jerrik before she...became a portal victim.

    Scarlet's reaction to her suggestion was dismissive, something that would almost offend her if not for the older woman's explanation. The gesture to her throat made the teenager open her mouth in a small 'o'. "Ooh...right." Guess the voice thing didn't come up too much in books and movies. As long as the ladies had short hair and men's clothes, they were set! The reality was a little different. "Sounds shitty." Yet Scarlet had to do it, the kingdom wasn't fond of women in the guard. She'd almost been arrested for 'impersonating' a knight! The redhead snorted derisively at the idea. "Impersonating, peh..."

    Oh thank god, Scarlet did have an underdress! Relief spread from cheek to cheek before she joined the black haired woman in her laughter. "Great! That's good, I was kinda worried!" Phew! Dodged a bullet. A big ole, naked bullet. Swiping a small tear from the corner of her eye, she stole a sip from her can. "Hope the couch won't be uncomfortable. I've never really slept on it before."

    "I...might've snapped at that guard, actually. Tore into him pretty badly. Jerrik had to step in and break things up. Blackmailed them to keep quiet about it." Scarlet chuckled at the memory. Ah...that was a fun one. The guard had seemed on the brink of a panic attack. In exchange for keeping quiet about Scarlet's gender, the Prince had offered to NOT let the royals in on how they'd been manhandling his knight.

    As Kyoko started to laugh with her, the knight found herself wiping away a tear from her own eye. She truly didn't want her to be there on her couch, sleeping naked. Though, her reaction was well worth the joking around about it. "Oh, don't worry about that. Even just at a glance, I can tell it will feel far better than a cot or, god forbid, the ground outside." There was her characteristic smirk once again. She truly hadn't enjoyed her little camping trips with Jerrik, traveling between kingdoms for work. Whenever they passed a town, they made damn sure to stop at the Inn for a bed.

    "Too bad you couldn't have given him a nice black eye too! But sometimes a verbal lashing can be just as satisfyin'." Especially when blackmail was involved! Kyoko let out a small "Heh!" before she smirked, seeming impressed with the chain of events. Scarlet wasn't quiet or demure at all, and that was exactly the way she liked it! It was good to hear that fool be put into his place too! Maybe this Prince guy wasn't all bad after all. ...Still not the kind of person the teenager would be interested in meeting though.

    Scarlet insisted that the couch would be far more comfortable than any cot, and definitely an improvement over the bare ground outside. Deep beneath the cushions, the black haired woman might find a few crumbs, but otherwise? No dirt and definitely no creepy-crawlies on her couch! It was far plusher than any old army cot too! "Cool! I should have an extra pillow and stuff somewhere..." After a moment of thought, the teenager tilted her head at Scarlet. "How're you feeling now, anyway?" She'd gotten a bit of food in her, and even some drink. Was she in need of anything else or even a power nap?

    "I'd like that..." Scarlet smiled a bit sheepishly as the girl mentioned an extra pillow. Though, knowing her luck, Kyoko would be in for an interesting scene in the morning... She'd gotten far too used to having other people sleeping in bed with her. Once she'd spoken up again, the knight nodded and smiled a bit, leaning against the counter slightly. "A little tired...perhaps mentally exhausted from trying to make sense of everything. But other than that...better. Thank you again...I don't know how things would've turned out if you hadn't found me out there." Truly...she would've been lost, in so many ways. Kyoko was a godsend, as laughable of a concept as that was to the knight. "It'll take a little time to adjust...but I'm sure things will sort themselves out at some point."

    The sheepish admission earned a firm nod and an amused smirk. A 'bed' without a pillow was awful! It might as well be like laying on the dirty ground with a rock to support your head. Nope, no guest of her's would get that treatment. As for said guest's state, Scarlet admitted that she felt mentally exhausted. Kyoko nodded in light understanding. "It gets better with time! You start getting used to stuff and suddenly it's not so bizarre." Though the magical girl imagined that there was a lot more for Scarlet to wrap her mind around here. "No problem!" The teenager waved a hand, grinning from ear to ear at being thanked. "Someone helped me out when I first got here, figured I might as well repay that by helpin' you!" Time healed all wounds, or so the saying goes. "Word of advice while you're getting used to things here, try not to overthink stuff. You're gonna find a lot of weirdoes. Like...a lot of 'em. Not bad weirdoes either! Just...try not to freak out if you see animal people or walking corpses."

    Animal people? There was a curious expression on the knight's face, then. Walking corpses...well, she'd seen something along those lines before, certainly. But, a world populated by these, 'weirdos', would be something completely different. "I'm used to a place where there was nothing, really, but humans lurking around... The Prince and the Messenger were about the only exceptions I'd come across." She trailed off, tucking some of her fallen hair behind her ear. "It made life interesting. Though...it was also a place where women doing...anything, really, was frowned upon. Aside from, you know, household...things." She shook her head. "...If this place is as you say...how can a normal human hope to find their place, here?" Her voice trailed off, then, before she sighed. Sleep would probably be for the best... She was having a hard time processing what was happening around her as it was. Asking questions like that wouldn't lead to anything tonight. She was tired, mentally drained...finding her place in the world would have to wait a few hours.

    "Yeah, my world was pretty much only humans, too." Aside from Kyubey, Witches, and Magical Girls, it was as mundane as it could get! Normal humans, no vampires, not a single biped animal person. No robots, either! This world was a different one. The disgust on Kyoko's face was as blatant as the beaming sun! Her nose crinkled, mouth dropping down in a grimace. "I kinda got that impression when you told me about that freaky guy, but yuck! It still sounds so stupid." Granted, Japan wasn't exactly the biggest feminist country...but it sounded like one compared to Scarlet's world! Crossing her arms snugly over her chest, Kyoko shook her head, long ponytail bouncing behind her back. "This place doesn't have those kinds of hangups. You can do whatever you want! ...Within reason and stuff." Meaning, Scarlet could totally kick ass and have adventures, but she couldn't go rob stores or kill anyone in the city.

    A brow raised at the other woman's question, the teenager not completely understanding what she meant. Find her place...? It was an odd concept. Kyoko's place was wherever she laid her head! The magical girl was rather simple when you get down to it, she didn't require all that much out of life. Though, she was still young, whereas Scarlet was a grown woman, used to serving a Prince. Thinking over an answer, the redhead eventually shrugged. "That depends on you, I think. Like, if you wanna find your place, you gotta think 'bout what you want. Take me for example!" With a grin, she gestured to the room as a whole. "I got food, a bed, I can entertain myself...and I've got something of a job. Kinda unorthodox, but I can kinda live the same life I used to have in Japan. Better, actually! So, what do you need to make your place here?"

    "Honestly...I am not sure. I had trouble fitting in even in my own land." Scarlet sighed deeply, cautiously sitting down on the couch, before a pleasantly surprised expression emerged on her face. It was quite comfortable, actually. Huh... After a moment, she needed to chuckle at herself. Before apologizing to Kyoko for the outburst. "I apologize. It's just..." She bounced slightly in place and chuckled once more. "...This is more comfortable than my own bed back home." She sounded quite amused by that fact. Though a more thoughtful look crossed her face shortly after.

    "Well...I told you before that I'd like to open my own forge here. But...really, aside from that, I have no idea. There are so many strange things here...and, I don't mean to sound offensive by this, by strange beings here as well, as you have said as well." She lowered her head after a moment, tucking a lock of hair behind her ear with another small sigh. "But...you say that your life here seems to be better than back home?" There was almost a hopeful tone to her voice for a second as the knight lifted her gaze to meet the girl's own.

    Following Scarlet's lead, Kyoko sat down on the armrest of the couch in a rather informal fashion. Her hands braced against the furniture and the teen crossed one ankle over the other. "I didn't fit in much either. I just did my own thing!" Had to admit, it was nice! The redhead hadn't quite hit that phase of her teens where she desired to fit in and be seen as normal. Instead, she relished in her own uniqueness and flaunted it when possible. The look on Scarlet's face was pretty funny, earning an amused snort from the magical girl. "If you think that's something, just wait til you're in an actual bed! Those're way softer!" Though snoozing on the couch had its own sort of comfort to it as well.

    "If you went ahead and made a forge, I'd definitely visit it and buy some cool stuff from you. I don't know what goes into gettin' a forge but... I bet you can make it happen, eventually!" Kyoko scratched the back of her neck casually, trying to think of how forges were made in the first place! She supposed it wasn't as easy as just buying a vacant building, right? Hm... "Well, you've got time to adjust. You don't hafta make any decisions right away. I think just getting used to this new world would be cool for now!" And boy, was there a lot for Scarlet to get used to.

    "But...you say that your life here seems to be better than back home?"

    The redhead hesitated. Guess it was her own fault for mentioning it, but the followup question made Kyoko feel a bit awkward. This definitely wasn't the time to dump everything that had ever happened to her onto Scarlet, they'd only just met! And besides, some of that stuff was better kept hidden away. At the same time, she had learned quite a bit about Scarlet without offering too much in return. Maybe a bit of give and take would be okay. "Well...having free housing like this is a huge plus. Back home, if I wanted somewhere to sleep besides an alley or a bench? I had to lie and cheat my way into a hotel. Usually used some magic to trick people. Like pretending to pay money for a night, but once I left the place, the money would turn into some scraps of trash. If I wanted food, I had to steal it. I didn't really mind that kind of life. I did what I have to do. But this place is...easier. I don't have to worry about not getting caught. It's kinda...nice." As she spoke, Kyoko idly played with the frayed fabric of her own shorts. "Just feels like a lot of things are easier here." There were still Witches to fight, but no need to claim territories or bust heads for a Grief Seed. Homura was more than willing to team up, and the two had a decent share of the Grief Seeds between them!

    An actual bed was softer, still!? That thought blew the knight's mind, to a minor extent. That sounded quite comfortable... However, the lack of a lead towards how to acquire a place for a forge made her nearly sigh. She'd have to keep searching for leads, in that case. Though, where to begin...that was a mystery in itself.

    Once Kyoko started to explain a bit about her world, Scarlet watched her carefully. It didn't sound like she was in for a pleasant story... As she spoke, the knight occasionally nodded along. There were a lot of similarities to places in her own homeland to what she was describing. "That isn't much different, it seems... There were a lot of children who had to resort to such things where I came from, losing their parents to either sickness, or fighting... There was one orphanage in Ariasien, but...a lot of them still needed, quite a lot. Jerrik and I had to arrest a child for theft in the market at one point..." She frowned deeply. It...wasn't her proudest moment. But there would've been a riot if they hadn't... "Rather than taking them to the castle, we took him back to the orphanage. He got a slap on the wrist, and Jerrik saw to it that they were given better funding so the children wouldn't be nearly as bad off."
