While she had tried to dissuade the white haired man, his attention seemed to shift over to Izayoi. Thinking that the man was holding out on them, especially as he told them he only had an old synchro deck to come through the tournament with, Hibiki was attempting to pressure the man into revealing whatever it was he was hiding. However, the older man did not seem to back down in the face of the psychic duelist, throwing out names that she didn't quite recognize, but which Hibiki likely did. They too were likely psychic duelists, ones of likely large power, and it only made Furiko even more curious about the man. However, while curious, she hadn't asked him and instead had her attention turned towards the monitor. Seeing that Yugo was up to bat, she looked to the others and said,"well, let's leave the threats for on the field. There's another duel going on and I think it'd be best to go watch that instead for now."
As such, she turned to look at the monitor and watch the explosive beginning between the two synchro players. Both mirroring each other's plays, despite their different decks, and both opening with a rather similar board. She was familiar with Blackwings, due to the fame of one such user known as Crow Hogan in the past, yet she hadn't ever seen this Raikiri before. Then, there was Yugo who brought out two dragons, nearly identical in appearance and name. She couldn't help but feel enamored at the glistening green wings of the white dragon, and there was even some sort of odd feeling that she had been getting from elsewhere. She couldn't quite place it, but it also felt as though there were a pulse coming from her deck itself, though, when her eyes drifted down to the deck case, it seemed to settle down.
"Pleasure to meet you then, Valeria." As she greeted her, she snapped her fingers in realization saying, "right, that's where I saw you." Zephine proceeded to give the girl the rest of her cards, helping her reassemble her deck in its entirety. As Valeria thanked her, she said, "no probs, Val. Happy to help a fella out. Besides, can't wait to see how they do in that action you wanna show 'em in." Thinking back to the brackets she then said, "but man, it's a damn shame you know. I won't be able to see 'em in person unless we get to the semi-finals." She then shrugged saying, "ah well, guess that's life for ya. Just gotta wait then I s'pose."
Looking back to what she was now referring to as her new found friend, she asked, "so there Val, whatcha got on the agenda for now? Duel's a long ways away, and wandering by your lonesome is probs a bit borin' right?" Hearing the roaring crowd, she followed with, "though, I s'pose that there's always a duel going on to watch so there's that." But, with a smile on her face, she turned back to Valeria asking, "so, whatcha wanna do for now, Val?"
