As Beta approached, Seg was not standing in her usual place. However she would be able to see some faint movement behind the high counter, hinting that Seg was still somewhere nearby. The figure continued rummaging about at her work, giving Beta the briefest glance at the base of a black shirt, designer jeans and pale skin between the two before the figure stood. She brushed her hands off against one another until Beta caught her eye.

"Hmm? What was that sweetcheeks?" She leaned over the desk again, looking down at young Beta with a smile and listening attentively before she shook her head. "You're friend, the oddball right? Sorry, I haven't seen her. I'll tell my boyfriend to keep an eye out for her though."

Seg gave Beta a winning smile, before she leaned in towards the unit. Silently giving her an assessing look, before she backed up, lifting her fingers to form a frame with her thumbs and forefingers. She even stuck her tongue out the corner of her mouth as she stared at the girl, before she returned to her place at the counter. Balancing her head on her hand, propped up on her elbow as she assessed the alien robot. "Say Beta, how would you like a job? We're looking for a mascot for the store here. Someone to help our arcade stand out. Your mommy would need to give permission and stick around whenever we film adverts, but we'd pay you, and you could play all the arcade games you want."

Beta's eyes lit up at that idea. "Oh, that sounds like it'd be lots of fun! But I already have a job, and a lot of people count on me for it, even though I'm not very good at it, so I wouldn't be able to. I really appreciate the offer, though!" She gave a look around, however. "Oh, I really should try to find Rapier, though. She's much nicer than her sister and doesn't hit me in the head, but she seems very prone to wandering off."

"D'awww..." The phrase escaped from Seg's lips, a heartrending mix of disappointment and genuine charm slipping from her. Her head shook, dissatisfied but understanding. "Bummer. You'd be perfect for it too. If you ever change your mind...wait, what was that about her sister hitting you in the head?"

Beta just nodded as she stood up on her toes to try to maybe see any sight of Rapier still inside. "Yup, always hitting me in the head with her sword," she cheerfully provided. "And deliberately keeps getting my name wrong." She stopped her search for a moment and gave Seg a big smile. "I think it's just how she shows she cares."

The look of shock and horror on the gaming punk turned storeowner was surely a delightful thing to behold. Indeed, so overwhelmed was she that Seg failed to notice the giant lumbering creature strolling down the street outside, the ground shuddering with every footstep. Or the rush of the patrons of the arcade as they ran to the window. After a few moments, life returned to her eyes, and Seg drew in a harsh, hissing breath of air.

"Sweety. Where is your mother?"

"Oh, look! Big monster!" the girl proclaimed, apparently missing, or wholly distracted, from answering the question. "I'll bet Rapier went to go check on that!" She turned back to wave to Seg. "Bye, Miss Seg! I gotta go get Sera and Brennis!"

"Wait, Beta!"

Seg's shout was swiftly drowned out as Beta raced to find Sera and Brennis. She'd find the two where she had left them, an intense look of concentration on his face. The millipede on the screen was moving around with great speed, as did the other enemies on the screen. Yet Brennis was keeping his cool, smoothly moving his fighter on the screen around with a skill his puny body lacked. It was a good showing. Certainly enough to draw the interested gazes of three other arcade goers. His eyes drifted to the corner as his starship sent out a wave of energy bolts to bring down his target. He smiled faintly, before glancing to Sera beside him. An idea came to his mind, though he wasn't sure if he could pull it off...but this was his chance for a good luck kiss. Well, good luck hug.

"I'm almost at the high score, Sera. H-how about a h-high five for luck?"

It wasn't Sera, but Beta that came in, clapping her hand against his. Seemingly unaware of her interference.

"Big monster outside, guys! We should go! I think Rapier already went out to do something about it!"

Brennis's arm fell to the side, his eyes wide in surprise. Clearly he hadn't expected to be high-five-denied so brazenly, especially with his crush so close. He blinked in surprise, shifting his eyes back to the screen.

"N-now? I'm almost at the high score though! Can't it wait just..."

He stopped, as if realizing just how invested he was in the game. And why. Here he was, playing an arcade game in front of a crowd to...what? In the hopes that he might impress Sera? And this was all he could think of when their friends were in danger. He looked down at the buttons before him. This was all he had ever been good at. Now...he had to let it do. Because he had to. Because it would make Sera happy.

"...Okay. I'll...try to keep up."

"Oh, no," Sera interjected, standing up. "You stay in here, Bren. Giant monsters tend to step on things." The taller, more adolescent form of Mother Two put on her best puppy dog eyes. "How do you think I'd feel if you got stepped on, Brennis?"

"B-but..."

His argument broke at Sera's protests, like waves against the shore. Brennis's voice stammered as he tried to articulate an argument that was already both won and lost. He couldn't let Sera go. He couldn't let her out of his sight. Not after what he had seen. But Sera was stubborn. Once she had something in her head, she stuck by it. It was honestly something that had endeared her to him. She wouldn't let him go, no matter how he argued.

So that left only one option.

"Okay Sera." He said, trying to give a brave, innocent smile. "I'll stay here and try not to get into trouble."

Until he could sneak behind her at least.

"Great!" Sera cheered. "That means Beta can go! She's way less step-on-able!"

The blonde girl froze in fear at that declaration, but managed to stutter out a, "M-m-Mother Sera, I don't think that's a word ..."

She went flat at that, giving the purifier a glare and a pfft. "Fine, then. You watch Brennis and make sure he doesn't get stepped on. If this big monster is what I think it is, I should only need to communicate with it. I'm pretty sure it's just Wynne's mom."
