Esmeralda: The fiery Dramatist

The next person to come was Esmerelda. This women was of Romana decent. She was also very beautiful. Tadashi greeted her and she sat down across from him. Esmeralda said smoothly, "It's a pleasure to meet you, Mr. Hamada."

Tadashi gave her a smile, "The pleasure is mine." He then started asking her the questions, "How did you meet my brother?"

"I'm a street performer. I also can eat fire, control fire, make fire," Esmeralda made a small ball of fire on the tip of her finger then blew it out, "Your brother figured out I could create it when I needed a quick getaway from a police officer. They don't take kindly to street performers anymore." She sighed dramatically then crossed one leg over the other.

Tadashi just raised an eyebrow. This women certainly had a flare for drama, "So your power is creating fire. Why do you want to see Big Hero Six rebooted? Why do you want to join up?" He steepled his hands as he asked this.

Esmeralda hesitated then looked at the ground, "Once when I was street performing I was raped," Her voice was broken as she said this, "No one was there to help me. We need heros again, the streets aren't safe anymore. The only good thing that came out of that experience is that I now have my fire powers. But if I could go back..." Esmeralda got a distant look, "I wouldn't have gone out that night."

Tadashi nodded, feeling sympathy towards her, "I'm sorry that happened to you. I know sorry doesn't fix anything, but that is a horrible thing to happen to you." He tilted his head at her then asked, "How long have you lived here?"

"In San Frantokyo? About 10 years. I lived in New York City before," She was being very normal and calm now. Tadashi almost wished for the dramatic women to come back. He kinda like that, it was interesting.

"How long have you lived here, Mr. Hamada?" Esmeralda asked with a sweet smile. She messed with her bracelets as she awaited an answer.

"Since I was 11 years old. I moved here when my parents died with my little brother. Hiro, the boy you met," Tadashi reminded her of his brother as he answered. Tadashi was a very kind person.

Esmeralda didn't feel judged for once, "Oh, yes. I'm sorry for your loss." She stood up, "I must go, I have to go visit my cousin. He is having a bit of trouble and I need to make sure he takes his medication."

Tadashi nodded and stood up, shaking her hand when she offered it. Esmeralda did a mock offended expression, "You kiss a lady's hand."

Tadashi didn't even try to contain his smile, she was truly and entertaining women. He kissed her hand then bowed, making Esmeralda laugh.

"It was a pleasure."

"The pleasure was mine, Ms. Esmeralda."
