Toast has mixed feelings about the girls not noticing the current situation.  On the one hand, it's probably a good thing that the public hasn't noticed a drawn weapon in the middle of Amity Colosseum.  On the other, Toast really likes being the center of attention.  It's probably for the best, but it seems this culprit is intent on making a scene.

Unfortunately for him, Toast has the drop on him, not the other way around.  As soon as the wolf faunus began to turn for his attack, the cat faunus is already beginning his counter.  In one swift movement, Toast leaps up and over him, sending the bucket of popcorn high into the air as his body twists, ending up in a perfect upside-down vertical directly above his prey.  In that same motion, his free hand draws a pistol from the pocket of his souvenir sweatshirt. But instead of a bullet, a blade shoots out and begins to crackle with electric energy as lightning dust courses through the steel.

And as Toast reaches that upside-down vertical above the other faunus, the blade reaches down and taps on the boy's arm.  There's no piercing, no damage behind the blade itself, but the electricity is less discerning as it jumps from steel to flesh, sending a jolt through the culprit's sword arm and hopefully forcing it to drop his weapon.

After that, the former acrobat twists in the air once more to right himself and lands gracefully, once again directly behind his opponent.  This time however, the Butter Knife gently rests on the other boy's shoulder.  With a playful--almost joking--smile, he says, "Seriously, man, as much as I like putting on a show, I really don't want to spill my popcorn."  As if on cue, the bucket of popcorn previously tossed into the air falls gently into Toast's outstretched free hand, not a single kernel of popcorn dropped.

With a satisfying *click* she opened a pouch on her belt and took out her scroll "Yeah sure, here you go." unlocking her scroll and handing it to Helena "I just wanted to give you an out if you would prefer to not give it to me, or if you needed to check with them whom I sho..." she stopped mid-sentence, her attention captured by the sight of Toast jumping to dodge an attack. Not really sure what to do she just sat there with a concerned expression looking at at the two making a scene and then back to Helena.

Helena's smile widened (if possible) when Diana handed over her own scroll, unlocked and everything. Taking it with her left hand and picking up the one on the table with her right, she was listening to her until the sentence trailed off, staring with a worried look on her face at something. Helena turned as well, her brow furrowed in mild confusion. It only got worse once she caught sight of it, too...

To Gray's relief his attack was nowhere near hitting the mark. He then yelped in pain as an electric current went into his injured shoulder. The pain caused his grip on his weapon to tighten, making it impossible for Gray to put the weapon down at the moment. He begun to turn again before the calm and joking words cut through instinct fully enough to provoke a more reasoned response. That response however was just sullen silence.

Toast was currently very proud of himself at the moment.  Not only had he successfully dodged an attack, he did a back flip while dodging and even got in a one-liner!  Bonus points, he did it in front of two cute girls!  Nice!  Now he just needs to wait for the applause and...wait, where's the applause?

Glancing over at Diana and Helena, he saw their expressions and inwardly winced.  Looks like he hasn't impressed them at all.  Even his "opponent" didn't seem particularly enthusiastic, though at least he wasn't taking more swings.  That's a plus, right?

"Heh, not even a witty retort, huh?  Tough crowd," Toast says with an awkward chuckle, before trying to offer a compromise.  "Tell ya' what, I kinda need this hand to eat popcorn, so I'll put mine away if you stow yours, sound good?"
