(OOC: Sorry for the wait, and the awful start x.x I figured with the plot we had in mind that it'd work if I just followed on from the last thread Mimana was in, just to explain some of the stuff below. ^.^)
It hadn't been long since Mimana had begun her new life in Twilight Town; or at least, the new part of her life. It was just fortunate for her that a kind elderly couple had offered to take her in for however long it was that she would have to stay there.
Outside the station, the girl sighed a bit and leaned on the wall overlooking the track and the mountains beyond the town. In truth, she missed moving about and learning new things; missed her ongoing quest to become better and follow her father's path, especially after having failed to defend the ideals they shared against that Heartless psycho. But she had a purpose in this town, at least; she would stay, visit the sandlot every day for the Nobody to bring that Heartless there, and then...
She could kill it, and then she'd do right by her father's honour.
It was a thought that pleased the young woman, but it was so frustrating to wait. But, with nothing else to do, Mimana merely contented herself and continued to watch the sunlit city, reminding herself that she'd have to check the sandlot again later on.

And moving through the orange glow of Twilight Town was a young man. He looked simple enough - t-shirt, glasses, jeans, sneakers. If anything, he looked like he would be more fit in a library or studying rather than being out and about. And indeed he was. He was reading a book as he walked - A memoir of a demon hunter that had fought all his life and only recently retired. Barely anyone took notice of the young man, and fewer still noted the fact that despite apparently having his nose in his book, he avoided people and went around them like he had been looking up the whole time.
Such awareness of his surroundings would be a necessity when faced with the battles he had undergone in order to merely survive.
For Kenji, he understood himself to be a mere student. There was much he had to learn, in his opinion - magic, swordsmanship, martial arts, science, everything. In his opinion, there was nobody who wasn't a student in some form or way, and he held scorn for anyone who believed themselves to be the absolute master of something, to have reached the pinnacle of some field. Not only was such an opinion absolutely arrogant, but it also was an attitude that would stagnate people, making them blind to changes that are happening around them, unable to adapt, and most importantly, unable to learn.
Kenji made sure to never fall into that trap, but then, with his skills, many would say he had achieved mastery of fields that most people barely even approached, let alone reach.
Sitting down at a bench of the train station, he continued to read. The duties of an emperor were long, tedious, and exhausting. He needed a break - to just sit back, read, and rest both his mind and body. There were too many things going on right now, and if he continued, he would probably burn himself out.
The sun was so warm that it almost made her want to fall asleep... It made Mimana think of home for a second. The Land of Departure wasn't anywhere near as sunny or bright as Twilight Town, but it was always warm there, between the warmth of her family home and the heat of battle.
I hope that he comes back here soon, Mimana thought, turning from her position to look back towards the station. The sooner he gets back with that Heartless, the sooner I can get back there.
Of course, Mimana was completely innocent to the fact that The Land of Departure had long been another place entirely after a ravaging by dark forces.
Just as she was about to wander back to the sandlot, a boy wandered into the train station with his face firmly in a book. The pink-haired girl found herself watching him as he did so; he wasn't a local - she'd been around long enough in this town to know most people by their face - and so she found herself wondering who he was. Could he have been an outsider from another world like she was?
He didn't look like a threat... she mused, noting that he had looked rather normal; just like any other young man walking around, who looked to be a few years younger than herself from what little of him she could see past the book he'd been reading. She still wanted to know what was going on, though; barely anything changed in Twilight Town, so something like this merited some attention. The sandlot wasn't going anywhere, anyway.
Mimana walked across the plaza at a relatively quick pace, her mind racing with what to say (if anything) to the man. She was probably the furthest thing from a conversationalist there was, at least with people she wasn't fully acquainted with, so actually starting conversation with a new person was practically unchartered territory for the girl. But, by that point, she had opened the door to the train station and wandered in, so there wasn't much turning back now...
Taking a quick look, she quickly saw that the mystery man was sitting at one of the benches, still reading away. Mimana didn't exactly want to disturb him... but there was a part of her that wondered who he was, and that 'heroic nature' that had built up in her wanted to know if he had any ill intention (though it didn't look like he did, it looked like his intention lay solely with that book.) Sitting down at the bench opposite the man, she folded her hands in her lap and thought carefully about speaking to him. He was reading a book, so she could ask about that; and he was waiting at a train station, and looked to be new, so--
"H-Hello," Mimana said without entirely realizing it. "If you don't mind me saying, sir, I've seen you around here before... Are you new? Or, were you just passing by to the, um, train station?" She hadn't meant to say it, and it had come out awkwardly as everything she said did, but it was out there now. She just forced herself to remain looking at the man, rather than looking away as she wanted to.

Kenji looked up to see who had approached him. A young girl slightly older than him, looking somewhat nervous at the prospect of talking to him. Brown-pink hair... an odd combination. Did she dye it? No matter. She seemed to be relatively ordinary in terms of bearing and appearance - no great beauty, but still attractive to the eye, normal clothes.... then he saw the armor that was on her right arm and was curious. Why only that arm? Then he remembered in some lore he had studied before, that keyblade knights wore something like that so they could summon armor at any time.
..... No, he was jumping to conclusions. For all he knew, it could be a decision of style. He continued listening to her words.
If you don't mind me saying, sir, I've seen you around here before... Are you new? Or, were you just passing by to the, um, train station?
He took a quick second to look at her. She didn't seem to mean any harm, but was curious as to why a stranger to Twilight Town was here. Odd. Kenji had believed Twilight Town to be a rather popular tourist place, considering its beauty and serenity. Well, no matter. He got the feeling she wouldn't leave him alone until he answered her question anyway. Besides, it wasn't like he had anything to hide.
"Merely visiting," he replied, his voice cool and calm. He had trained himself to not show much if any emotion when he spoke, in either his tone or his expression. He had to conceal all signs of himself if he wanted to survive - whether in combat or in politics. "I came only to relax for a while, then take my leave. That is all." With that, he went back to reading his book, but still attentive to the girl in case she had any follow-up questions. Hopefully, she would leave him alone now, but one never knew.
Conrí: Okay. *cracks knuckles* I looked over things! I'm likely off to get tea and food, and then, I'll try to...y'know, be a decent student, lol.
