Mandrake was sitting at an outdoor table at a café. He had spent the better part of the morning exploring this area called Cat Street. He had spent part of that morning raising enough yen to pay for goods at that café by entertaining the locals with slight of hand magic tricks. Good thing it didn't take long for him to raise the money for hot tea and some food since his stomach had started rumbling. His appetite paled in comparison to other rookie digimon that seemed to be bottomless pits by comparison or he would have surely attracted unwanted attention even in his human disguise.
Apparently the people thought he was fairly well off in money judging by how he dressed but he had given up correcting him. In reality most his money went to keeping him alive in the Human and Digital World alike. He looked down the street enjoying that the table he was at had a good view. Though most of the people here were human teenagers enjoying themselves, he found this place just as appealing as the Entertainment District.
Early before today. "Thought this would make you angry." There she was being held very close, Rosaria's breasts pressed against his chest, looking quiet annoyed everyone behind looking in shock. "Wait Rosaria is dating someone?" Next. "Her father finally approved someone?" Another. "I can see why!" This place is Rosaria's school, and the man is her future husband, he got closer his face inches from her own, but Rosaria wasn't phased. "You thought hiding our engagement was that easy? Well, everyone knows now, as it shall go from person towards person." He wasn't wrong Alexis pushes him aside, walking away really annoyed, but stay calm, but if she could display aura, it would be red, people being able to sense she is truly annoy.
Meanwhile now, Rosaria would be sitting at the same cafe as Mandrake, ordering a drink reading her book, still being annoyed by that person actions from before, but it didn't end, as he walked over all eye's focusing onto him, wearing a black suit, many amazed by him, sitting down on the other side of Rosaria. "I didn't get to finish what I had planned before we departed." She would glare. "What more could you had done?" Then he has shown it a ring worth more than many people's houses, Rosaria lost for words as he said. "I know we are already engaged, but your beauty deserves me to ask myself, will you marry me." This met nothing, but it did show towards everyone that he and Rosaria, are together even more she couldn't say no giving both family backgrounds, but did hesitate, but another shown up her father holding onto Rosaria's chair. "I approved of him doing this." She could only admit defeat, pulling out one hand. "..I do." She did her best to hide her feeling, even smiling about the whole thing, as he placed the diamond over her hand as they kissed, until it finished, Rosaria father looking, everyone clapping. "It's good to see you're happy with each other but I do wish it could had been done in a better place and this trash." Everyone looked on in shock did he just say that? He Rosaria's future husband. "I agree should we find somewhere better to eat and relax?" Rosaria would be ready to leave, not wishing to have them insult everyone, holding Rosaria close like before, but this time she couldn't get free so easily, he wanted to hear Rosaria agree which she couldn't, agree to calling this place trash just because it's not a rich person's hangout.

Mandrake noticed a young woman sit down not far from him and she didn't look happy with her company. It didn't take reading her mind to notice how angry she was. Two men, the older one he assumed was her father, and a younger man and, judging by the ring he offered her, was her fiancé. It seemed all attention on Mandrake had vanished, not that the disguised Impmon minded, when the group arrived. Something about the two men made Mandrake uncomfortable. Perhaps it was just the body language of the young woman.
When the young lady's father called the café trash, without moving from his spot, Mandrake said "Trash is hardly the right word for such a charming place but I guess money has made you gentlemen blind to the beauty of places not considered hangouts of the rich." His speech was well mannered and somewhat elegant but that was how he has spoken since he was Yaamon and, like his holosuit, he felt like it fit him for some mysterious reason.
Rosaria would open her eye's in shock, her father would just let out a soft smile, did someone really dare talk towards him in that way? This couldn't be a dream giving it's to farfetch, taking a seat at this person table. "It's odd for someone to question me let alone talk back, tell me do you not value your career or any hope off becoming someone?" He said his gaze cold, Rosaria just stood back, if the man walks away now, he could be safe, giving her father wouldn't pursuit a coward.
"I'll let your father handle this, it's good to learn from him while I can." Rosaria looked unplease with that comment.
Her father would place both hands together. "Or do you not care about a social life? I find most humans do, where not in a anime or manga where people can life from pure luck, because most people know off me, and giving you talked back then it's a little fishy unless you're from a family who thinks that they can rival my own?" He said awaitting for a answer her father not looking away from this strange person.

A mischievous glint appeared briefly in his blue eyes as he looked at the human adult who sat near him but he restrained the urge to laugh. He then said "I guess the reason it is odd to you is that almost no one is brave enough to speak to you in such a manner." He then took a sip from his tea before he continued "As for my career, there is hardly anything you can do that will affect it."
Mandrake glanced at the young man near the unhappy young lady before he said "It would seem that young man is like a younger version of yourself but the lady doesn't seem to like him that much."
A family that could rival his own? That man had no idea that he was a disguised digimon and that he didn't stand a chance even against rookie digimon like himself even though Mandrake wouldn't harm any human even if they annoyed him. Besides this human was not annoying to him but amusing, though the charismatic magician held in his amusement well. "As for my social life it is hardly your business and apparently you are only good at bullying others when things don't get your way. Besides as a tourist to this fine city I think by trying to threaten me that you are nothing but a mere coward as bullies tend to be."
Rosaria father would just laugh a little. "You really think so? Truth be told, you could become the next Houdini, but without a venue you had no where to showcase any of them talents, all I would have to do is buy them out before anything happens or pay the owner more than anything you can make, there are several ways for me to crush your desires, by exploiting human greed." Her father wasn't wrong about that, she has seen many people fall from this many times.
"That young lady is my daughter, and he isn't a copy of me, that would become boring I hope he might surpass me if he doesn't I'll find someone new for my daughter, and someone more fitting, so you don't need to tell me, he'll prove his worth or else." Rosaria just looks on, nothing he said shocked her, and her fiance just smiled calmly not worried at all.
"Coward? I'm far from one, I had more power than your common mind could think off, and it's not just money." Her father had an idea ready to give him a test if he wouldn't know what this was he'll leave, but first. "Rosaria please leave for a moment, I need to do something." He was hesitant to show this towards her yet, as Rosaria gave a slight bow. "Right away father, but plea..." His glare made Rosaria not say a word, as the fiance walks her away, holding onto a Rosaria like they were a couple. "Should we eat at a real place?" He said but Rosaria pushes himtowards the side walking away with him behind, as he just smiled.
Now back towards the father. "Okay, giving you have some type of bravery or maybe you're just stupid who knows, but here is your test." He pulled something out from his pocket showing it fully towards him. "Here is your test tell me what this is?" He said smiling, showing a black digivice, made for spirit users. Not many would stand up towards him, but digimon in holosuits, uncommon brats, or brats that gain power, what did this person belong to? He was about to find out. Many would try and hide this, but giving her father doesn't wish to allow anyone to match him he didn't care.

How did this man figure out he was a magician? He hadn't said anything to suggest that. Though he had heard of the human Houdini from the internet, he had a feeling his magic surpassed the human's abilities since his magic was real. Humans didn't possess real magic unless in fictional stories. Figuring he could find out how he guessed his profession he said "How did you guess a humble tourist, such as myself, was a magician? I never told you before now. I guess you're more clever than I took you for at first glance."
"As for your daughter, it seems she isn't found of her fiancé at all. It doesn't take a genius to read her body language to see he makes her uncomfortable." Was this man that blind to his daughter's feelings?
When the man sent his daughter away, the man was once again bragging about his power. Mandrake was able to resist his urge to roll his eyes. It seemed this man was starting to become tiresome. Then the man brought out a digivice Mandrake had seen a handful of times in the Digital World. It was a D-Tector. Was this man a spirit wielder or did he steal it? Right now it didn't matter as he had asked him what it was. An amused glint flashed in the disguised Impmon's eyes as he asked "Why would you ask someone like me? Or is it your money hasn't provided you with the wisdom to answer your question?" Mandrake wondered how this human would respond as he was able to still control his amusement. 'Your move friend.' He thought.
"Funny, I still think your foolish. You might just see me as a rich fool, but tell me how did I gain my wealth, how do I keep it? My children need to learn the same things I already know." He would sigh letting out a soft smile, looking towards him with a glare. "You sure are interested in my daughter, how I raise her has nothing to do with some stranger now does it? But if you did see her correctly then there isn't any problem, good mind, possesses beauty many could only dream about, she lives up towards her name very well, a rose full of beauty, yet displays thorns towards them not worthy, and if she doesn't wish to marry him that badly then it's her job to overcome it." He wasn't blind he just has his own plans, truly he's proud of her. "If I could change one thing it's how she's too soft with common trash like yourself." He's truly an honest man.
Once again he smiled softly. "Guess your a common fool acting cocky, this is no more than a phone, something you need my money to get." He got up sighing. "It looks like I did waste my time, I thought this would give me some entertainment, but you're nothing more than a fool that thinks he speaks for the lesser people, kind of like heroes in shows, it's funny really. Say your words to me or my daughter it makes no difference." He put his digivice away seeing no point to keep it out, also his daughter came back with you know who behind.
He would start to speak towards Rosaria. "I'm leaving, if you wish to stay here you may, but be home soon, it's much we need to get ready." She would blush slightly. "Thank you father." He would walk away, as her fiance would kiss her hand walking with him, as she sat back upon her chair embarrassed about being here now after that scene, her father would be gone unless stopped with her fiance.

"I assure you I have no ill intent towards your daughter. Just because you can't see what's obviously right in front of your face is hardly my problem." his amusement had gone to annoyance at being called a fool but he didn't let it show on his face. "I hardly doubt your daughter is as soft as you may think. She just has a different way of seeing things and who are you to judge me since you don't even know me. As I said before I'm a tourist not some common trash. The common trash, as you put it, is only in the trash cans and dumpsters."
When he mentioned Mandrake's cockiness and standing up for the people, the disguised Impmon merely smirked before he said "I guess you're not as unobservant as I thought. Yes I do look out for others like the heroes you mentioned. What's wrong with helping others in need or do you think you are beneath helping others just because you're rich?" As Mandrake watched Rosaria's father pocket the D-Tector his arrogance and cockiness flared. Later he would chalk it up to him being relatively young still. "That's a phone? Seriously? If that's the best you can come up with than you are a bigger fool than I initially thought sir. I have seen one of those devices in my travels before but up until now I had said nothing. That machine is called a D-Tector and, if I remember right, is carried by Spirit Wielders. Now that leads me to two conclusions, either you are a spirit wielder yourself or you stole it from someone."
"You keep acting like I don't see it, just because I don't allow my daughter to do what she wishes doesn't make me blind." He laughed again. "I didn't recall calling her completely soft, she can be as ruthless as myself, putting people in their rightful place, but at times she's just to kind with people worth nothing, her brother takes after mine wife, but she takes after me." He would look at him in a mocking way. "Right, but you do belong in them trash cans." Her father didn't watch how he talked towards someone coming out with one insult after the next, but this truly is making him bored now sighing. "I don't recall saying I'm like this because I'm rich? People are beneath me in everything, including money, but in war, combat, brains, and power itself, I haven't met one that I could call my equal, this is why people like you are foolish you see a man who is only rich, but never thought about his background."
Rosaria was getting close nearly hearing what he said, as he finally got annoyed. "You had many times to say that, but now wasn't the right one." His eye's showing a glare of someone who has destroyed many, as Rosaria was about to ask him what he said that same look when upon herself.
"Rosaria leave!" She would step back not many could annoy him towards this level, as her fiance was about to speak up to calm him down, but also was stopped. "Don't try and question me." His tone was light, but his words were dark, they would be gone again this time quickly without any formality his gaze back onto Mandrake.
"Are you just foolish or also stupid! Speaking about that stuff with my daughter here, stealing one would have no benefit, but for you to know this, then you're one yourself, or have a digimon hidden somewhere, or you're wearing a holosuit, I don't know which one it is, but I will show true strength if you don't leave my sight and never appear in front of me or my family again." He hasn't shown this side much giving in our world money matters and not many could keep up with him in that, reminding him of many years ago in the digital world, back when he use to travel their displaying his other kind of power.

Up until the point he was told that he belonged in the dumpster, Mandrake was either amused or wanted to roll his eyes at this human's behavior. Now he was angry and it showed in his blue eyes. Yet, the disguised Impmon somehow managed to keep seated as he glared at the man. "I beg your pardon? You have some nerve calling me trash and acting like all others are beneath you. If I didn't think that the trash was superior to you I would have called you trash myself." The girl called Rosaria seemed hesitant to leave but backed off.
"As for why I know what you have, you have one thing right. I am a disguised digimon but unlike some I hardly think power is the most important thing. Despite not questing for power though, I have enough brains and skill with magic to hold my own if it comes to a fight. As for showing me true strength, I think doing so here would attract more trouble than it's worth." Mandrake then smirked before he continued "Besides who do you think you are by telling me to leave when I was sitting at this nice café before you and your daughter arrived."
