Save The Date (N-Not That It's A Date Or Anything!) [Maia] Apr 7, 2016 4:31:56 GMT

After the labyrinthine hell of the Dark Area yesterday, Elliot and Isaac were looking forward to a nice, peaceful day away from the Digital World. It wasn't like they had much of a choice. After all, their otherwise-distant mother had finally caught onto their strange disappearances. When they didn't show up until early in the morning, she figured it was time to put a stop to their shenanigans. While she relented after some pleading from the brothers, her conditions were firm; return before midnight, and don't leave past the Shibuya limits. With the alternative being risking coming across Porcupamon again, the two brothers were more than happy to accept.
Today was going to be their little victory lap, a stress-free day where they'd be able to spend some time with the people they cared about most. Naturally, Isaac already had his phone out and starting typing up a message. Hey Maia. Thinking of catching a break after we survived that crazy day. You good to hang at-
"You know, that's a good question. Elliot, where should we g-?"
"Arcade." Elliot's firm, confident statement completely cut off Isaac's question. Upon a quizzical look from his brother, he explained "Japan's one of the few places that's still got a bunch of cool arcades. Come on, Isaac, we can't stop here and not check them out at least once!" The excitement mounted in the boy's voice, and it was clear he was finally starting to consider sights in Shibuya that had passed him by due to their focus on the Digital World. For the most part those sights seemed to be Street Fighter cabinets.
-that arcade downtown? Truth be told, Isaac wasn't the biggest gamer. If it'd make Elliot and Maia happy, though, he'd be more than happy to clock in. Besides, who knows what kind of games Japan would have? Maybe he'd end up finding something that caught his eye. After waiting for a response, he put the phone away and headed over to the arcade to meet her.
To say it was busy it was an understatement. Between the excited chatter of the patrons inside and the games blaring their soundtracks at full blast, Isaac hoped he'd be able to hear Maia if she spotted him. Elliot was simply in awe of how many people were in the building. The crowds were so dense, and full of so many different people. It'd be so easy to get lost in them!
