Rise marched towards the counter and sat herself down on one of the stools, Kanji close at her heels. She swivelled on her chair a little, trying to make herself as comfortable as she could before she raised her hand to place her order-- only to be halted by her companion.

"Ya sure you wanna try this?" Kanji looked somewhat uncomfortable, and just a tiny bit concerned. He still didn't believe that she had dragged him in the pouring rain just to try something like this.

The girl turned to him, a smug look on her face. "Kanji, Kanji, ye of little faith. You don't think little old me can handle something like this?" She wagged a finger at his direction before continuing. "We battle Shadows on an almost-daily basis and you think this is harder than that?"

"Not like you're actually fighting," Kanji grumbled beneath his breath, averting his gaze from the girl.

A pout replaced the grin on Rise's face. "Hey, I resent that! My job's hard too!" Regardless of their banter, she turned to face forward and called out her order. "One Rainy Day Beef Bowl challenge please!"

The store owner was surprised at the girl's order. He leaned forward, wide-eyed in disbelief "Aiya! Risette wants to take on the challenge? We must have it ready at once!" Turning his back to the ex-idol, he rushed to prepare the said dish.

With a mischievous gleam in her eye, she turned back to Kanji. "Still think I can't do it?"

Kanji replied with a shrug. "Dunno. Heard even Souji-senpai couldn't finish the damn thing. Sheesh, I don't even know I hadta come with ya."

"It's for emotional support! You're not very good at it though. Maybe I should've asked Yosuke-senpai to come with me instead?" The bowl soon arrived before her. It was a little overwhelming for the girl. "Wow. I didn't think it was this big." She had paled somewhat and her voice was hesitant. "Well... there's no turning back now. Itadakimasu!"

It wasn't long until she slumped on the counter top, face square on the table, whining out loud. "Soooo full. I can't moooove."

"Told ya. It's impossible. You're not diligent 'nough." Kanji peeked at the bowl. "Not even halfway through."

The only response Kanji got was a loud groan. Rise pounded a small fist on the table, slowly turning to the boy. "Geeeez, you should've told me earlier! Owww, my stomach."
