a character in “Fruits Basket: When Love is a Lie”, originally authored by NasiaWords, as played by RolePlayGateway

Description

Name: Keiko Ruki Sohma

"Is it not my job to be deceiving?"



Image



Age: 17
Gender: Female
Zodiac Animal: Rat



Image



Description: Keiko is about normal height for her age, standing at 5'5" and weighting 118 pounds. She has pale skin, but beneath her eyes is a purplish hue. The only reason for this is, like all the previous Rat's before her, she gets very sick easily and often. Keiko has long silvery-white hair that runs down the length of her back and bangs that stop right before her eyes. Her eyes themselves, are a beautiful honey color that have been known to turn red. Keiko always has a smile on her face when she is around anyone, and I mean anyone. She is very polite and well behaved, something she had learned from her grandmother. She is often despised by the other members of the Zodiac for her 'perfection' and 'position' among the rest of them. All in all, Keiko is a very attractive young lady, like most the other Juunishi.

Image



Personality: Keiko, like the previous Rat's, is quick-witted, clever, charming, sharp and funny. She has excellent taste, is a good friend and is generous and loyal to others considered part of her 'pack'. Keiko is ever curious, seeks knowledge and welcomes challenges of any sort. Some are even intimidated by her presence and spunk, but she never turns down a person in need and will do anything to help. But around the other members of the Zodiac, Keiko tends to be apathetic, keeps her distance, and never makes eye contact. This is mainly in front of the Head of the Family, whom she wishes to never disappoint or anger. When she does, she spirals into depression until the 'kind' words of the Head bring her back up. When she is around the other Juunishi at school though, if they are willing to speak to her, she's darn well going to speak back.

History: Keiko grew up in a household where everything was perfect. She was forced to walk a thin line by her parents, but she didn't know that. Keiko felt as though she was the luckiest person in the world to have a beautiful house, a loving family and an unbreakable bond. She was always confused by the concept of sadness and hatred. Until she felt sadness first hand. When Keiko was 6, her mother and father wanted to have another child, make a sibling for Keiko to play and bond with. But when they went to the Head, the Head took it out on Keiko, accusing her of wanting someone else to bond with. Keiko took the beating, and worse, believed it was all her fault. It took several weeks for her to recover fully, and even longer mentally. Once Keiko started up school, she was having issues, not only at home, but in classes to. Her parents had forced her to start learning everything out there, all the musical instruments, all the words in the dictionary and more. It wasn't till about Keiko's last year of elementary school that they found out she was slightly dyslexic. Her parents blamed it all on her, which she believed, but pushed for her to over come it. Keiko still has troubles with it, but keeps it to herself and deals with it the best she can. Keiko had a grandmother whom she was very close to, but died when Keiko started middle school. It was a very hard time for her, but that was when she started being more like her grandmother, polite and caring. In both middle school and high school, Keiko was elected Class Rep., giving her even more work and less time to relax. During middle school, she formed a case of Insomnia, making it impossible to sleep or sleep only for short periods of time. This only made her physically weaker and she got sick more often. When you look at her from a glance, she looks like the strongest person in the world, but underneath it, even unknown to herself, Keiko is at her limits. Because Keiko is the Rat, she appears to ahve the closest bond with the Head. She loves this because she just may be the only member of the Juunishi that doesn't want the curse lifted. Becasue of what the first Rat did, she feels obligated to make the others hate her, as punishment for 'her' cruel and selfish act.


Anything Else:
- Insomnia

- Dyslexic

- Secretly likes cats

-Has a super secret crush

(Everyone: Who does she like!!! Tell us!!!
Me: It's a SECRET! XD)

The wind was blowing through the trees, as the moon was shining down upon the house. All the Sohma's where gathered in the same area, for the first time in a year. Yami was at the Head of the table, watching the others talk softly to one another. He could see some who were to afraid to be even near him,so they were trying to distract themselves by playing with their food. Another group would talk among themselves quietly. The others didn't mind all that much of his presence and eat their food. There was a knock at the door, which surprised everyone even Yami. He had told all the servants to not enter the room, no matter what. He cased his eyes coldly on the maid who walked in, looking as pale and horrified as humanly possible.

"Didn't I tell everyone in the house, not to enter? Why are you here"? Yami said this in such a way the maid stopped half way, to afraid to come any closer. This annoyed Yami, for he couldn't stand seeing her just stand there. He raised his hand and beckoned her to him. She walked quietly,passing the other family members,who seemed to not even know of her existence. As she stood beside him, she had her head down, not daring to look up at him, without permission.

"Tell me what you want. It better be a good reason as well, or you know what will happen". At the thought the maid shivered noticeably at Yami. She stumbled on her words making them unclear and inaudible. Yami became annoyed and started tapping on his glass loudly.

"Are you some kind of mute child? What is it! Tell me, before I cut off your tongue"! She jumped back and this time looked up at him.

She looked around once than moved toward his ear,softly whispering to him. Yami nodded slowly and shooed her away. She ran at the signal, leaving the room immediately without even looking back. Yami sighed softly and stood up from the table. This had caused everyone to turn and face him in curiosity.

"This event is dismissed. You all may leave". He said this in a flat tone and walked out the room without a single good-bye.

Keiko & Ichirou Sohma


Keiko was still attempting to warm up after the walk here. The snow had freshly fallen and the wind was softly blowing, but just enough to sting your fingers if you left them uncovered for too long. She didn’t even live that far from the estate. Thankfully Ichirou offered to give her a ride to school.

Seeing everyone was nice, even the ones she barely knew. They had a bond, something she could never get enough of. It was special and one of the things she could say that she held dear to her. Keiko was well aware of where the others stood on the bond, thanks to Ichirou and Xian, two of the only Zodiac that ever talked to her. But they were her best friends at the same time, so she didn’t mind.

Then there was a knock at the door, which surprised everyone even Yami. The terrified maid soon made her way to Yami’s side, and soon after, she was dismissed. "This event is dismissed. You all may leave.” He said this in a flat tone and walked out the room without a single good-bye. Ichirou was one of the first out the door, leaving Keiko to hope he remembered his offer. Keiko herself got up slowly, hoping to catch up with Yami. She had been hoping to visit, and she had no time to stay sadly, due to school. He was further ahead than she thought he would be but catching up was easy.

“Yami,” she said quietly as she walked a few paces behind him. “It was nice to see you again. I was hoping I could stop by again today, but after school. It has been some time since I’ve seen you and I feel sorry for it.” Keiko tried not to say too much, knowing how delicate Yami could be. Giving him a headache would make her feel terrible.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`

Ichirou walked quickly walked out to his car, where a familiar face awaited. “Is it getting cold in here Kishi,” he said, quickly jumping into the car. He rubbed his hands together as he started the car. “It is so damn cold out, I hate it. Can’t wait till it’s warm out.” Ichirou looked at his friend before pushing him lightly. “Come on, lighten up. Keiko’s school isn’t that far away so you won’t have to breathe the same air as her for long. Then we can go do whatever you want. That is, until I have to work, then you can come help me.” Ichirou squirmed out of his coat and threw it into the back of the car.

Yami was walking toward the Red room, at the message of the maid. Yami heard familiar footsteps behind him, coming towards him, yet at t he same time keeping a distance. He didn't stop, since he had no time left. He keep his pace, and walked ahead. “Yami,” she said quietly as she walked a few paces behind him. Yami know glanced behind him, to see Keiko. She was one of the people who didn't mind his presence at the table, or in everyday life. She would come over often during the time of their childhood. He didn't answer her, turning his gaze back around. “It was nice to see you again. I was hoping I could stop by again today, but after school. It has been some time since I've seen you and I feel sorry for it.” Keiko tried not to say too much, knowing how delicate Yami could be. Giving him a headache would make her feel terrible. Yami stopped in his tracks,which had caused Keiko to bump into him. He seemed to have felt nothing, as he turned to face her unaffected.

He gazed at her with expressionless eyes, "I'm very busy Keiko. I have no time for you at the moment". He turned around starting at his normal pace, leaving Keiko behind. Yami had reached the Red room, he was about to enter, but saw that Keiko had stood her ground, not moving an inch from her spot. He glanced at her slightly,"You may come after school Keiko". He said this in a exhausted tone, and entered the Red room leaving her standing in the halls.

Ryuu
Ryuu watched as the terrified maid left the room. What was that all about? he thought, not even bothering to hide his confusion. He looked back at Yami, who suddenly told them they were all dismissed. We weren't even here very long.... he thought bitterly. He, for one, was hoping to get to know some of the others which he had yet a chance to do, and he didn't want to go back outside. It was cold outside, and sadly for him that wasn't a good thing. He had to bundle up stupidly to get here in the first place. Good thing the car should still be warm, he thought, finally feeling a bit better.
Getting up from his seat, Ryuu moved toward the door and put on his jacket. It was really an overly sized thing, but he liked the pattern on it so he didn't mind to much. "Goodbye!" he called to anyone in the room, flashing a smile before heading outside to get to his car. Once in the car, he started it up and waited for it to reach a decent temperature before he took off the coat and drove around. He wasn't working today, so he wasn't sure what he'd do.
----
Kishi
Kishi looked at Ichirou with a blank expression, getting in the car after him. He was happy to have a ride, but not so happy that that ride was going to be shared with a certain rat. Clenching his jaw, Kishi tried to contain all the outbursts that he knew would come if he let them. . “Come on, lighten up. Keiko’s school isn't that far away so you won't have to breathe the same air as her for long. Then we can go do whatever you want. That is, until I have to work, then you can come help me.” Kishi sighed and nodded some of the tension leaving his body. HE could ignore her for the short ride to school, right? "Okay, okay," Kishi mumbled, folding his arms across his chest. He may have been 20, but that didn't stop him from acting like a child a lot. He tried his best to not be bothered by Keiko, but it seemed whenever she was around it made him want to beat her at anything she did, which didn't really help his calmness level. "Just hurry up so we can get this over with."

Keiko & Ichirou Sohma


Yami stopped in his tracks, which had caused Keiko to bump into him. He seemed to have felt nothing, as he turned to face her unaffected. He gazed at her with expressionless eyes, "I'm very busy Keiko. I have no time for you at the moment.” He turned around starting at his normal pace, leaving Keiko behind. But Keiko stood there, silent, hoping he would just maybe change his mind. He glanced at her slightly, "You may come after school Keiko.” He said this in a exhausted tone. Keiko held in her voice, bowing slightly.

“Thank you,” she said as he entered a separate room. Then without hesitation, she darted out the door, pulling her jacket on as she made her way to the idle car. Once her hand touched the door handle, she froze as a somewhat overwhelming sense of hate overcame her. The cold reminded her that she had to get to school, and a shout from inside the car.

“Keiko, get in here or you’ll freeze to death,” Ichirou said, resisting the urge to honk once or twice. Keiko practically jumped into the car rubbing together her hands to warm them up. “And I don’t think you of all people want to be late to school.”

“Of course not,” she said through clenched teeth. Just ignore him … be mature …, she thought. “Thank you very much for the ride Ichirou. It was very kind of you to offer me one.” Most anyone would be horribly surprised to see Keiko so tense, except for him, of course. He had never seen her relaxed. But who could relax with such a … pest around. Thank goodness it was rare when she had to see him. In her mind, even thinking his name was forbidden. “It was a beautiful morning until recently,” she whispered to herself.

Everyone ate their food and chatted amongst themselves; everyone was weary of the head; everyone was behaving in the typical fashion. Ateryu sighed and scanned the room through her fringe over and over again, looking for something interesting to make note of. The only thing that was out of place was a maid coming into the room. Yami seemed pissed at that; Ateryu smirked at the poor girl shaking before looking over everyone else. The younger zodiac would start school soon, and they were dressed in their school uniforms. Ateryu had refused to go to a school and was dressed in a plan black T-shirt and baggy black pants. It was cold but she hadn't remembered to bring a jacket. Oh well.

Without any explanation (as per usual everyone was left in the dark) Yami dismissed them and left, with Keiko following close behind. Damn suck up rat She scoffed and scolded herself. Maybe she was simply asking permission for something? Like a school trip or something. Ateryu shook her head and glanced at Nani. She would probably follow the rooster out of the room but for now she leaned back in her chair and continued to watch everyone.

Kishi
Kishi watched as Keiko approached the car, expression going blank when he saw hers turn to one of hate at the sight of him. He turned away from her best he could, barely paying attention to her as he clenched his hands into fists in his lap. Calm, he thought to himself, trying to relax. It was just a ride to school.
“Thank you very much for the ride Ichirou. It was very kind of you to offer me one,” he heard her say, making him wince slightly. She was always so nice to everyone, and for some reason that just made him angrier. Looking at the window, he tried to distract himself with anything outside. Kishi had always felt some sort of hatred for Keiko, but maybe hatred wasn't the right word. Just every time she came around he felt the need to yell at her or have a melt down.
He then heard her whisper, and he snapped. "No one asked your opinion," he growled in her general direction, hands clenching tighter if that was even possible at this point. "Hurry up, Ichirou," he said, rather harshly, to his friend in the drivers seat. This is going to be a long ride...
Ryuu
Ryuu was driving down the street, not really planning on going anywhere. He usually would go for a walk, but it was far to cold so that was out of the question. He then spotted a small place that looked like a coffee shop (it did say coffee on the sign) and parked close by. He didn't really want nor like coffee, but usually if a place had coffee is had sweets, and he was in the mood for a muffin or something similar. "Too bad I don't work today," he thought out loud. Usually he'd be at work, but he had today off so he was left with nothing to do.

Keiko & Ichirou Sohma


"No one asked your opinion," Kishi growled in Keiko’s general direction, hands clenching tighter if that was even possible at this point. "Hurry up, Ichirou," he said, rather harshly, to his friend in the driver’s seat.

Ichirou sighed heavily as he pulled off. He loved the both of them, so when they fought like this which just happened to be whenever they were within several yards of each other, it was hard to say anything at all. “How about a new rule? No talking in my car unless it’s me.”

“Yes, of course. My apologies Ichirou, I just wasn’t aware that speaking my mind was off limits.” With that, Ichirou began to speed slightly. He would rather them not tear each other apart.

“Keiko, I love you, but zip it.”

“Sure thing,” she said, crossing her arms and leaning as far from Kishi’s seat as possible. The long silence fell upon them, leaving Ichirou to sigh once again.
“First and foremost,” Ichirou started. “Kishi, start thinking of what you want to do today. In the meantime, Keiko, I don’t have to work my second job tonight, so I was thinking if you didn’t have too much homework, we could eat dinner together. You can come to Kishi,” Ichirou added on, shoving Kishi slightly with his elbow. He knew it was almost pointless to ask, but that’s how he was. Always trying to bring people together.

Kishi
Kishi didn't bother replying to Ichirou's no talking rule. He wasn't supposed to talk, after all. Kishi watched objects pass by outside, trying his best to ignore Keiko. Every time she talked he had an urge to tape her mouth shut and lock her in the trunk. He probably would, if he had tape and Ichirou wasn't driving. Sighing, he let the silence fall around them, comfortable since it was something he was used to. Then Ichirou spoke again.
“Kishi, start thinking of what you want to do today. In the meantime, Keiko, I don’t have to work my second job tonight, so I was thinking if you didn’t have too much homework, we could eat dinner together. You can come to Kishi,” Ichirou told them, making Kishi finally turn to look at both of the cars other passengers. He wasn't sure about what he wasn't to do today, but he was positive he wouldn't be able to have dinner with the rat. HE still technically wasn't supposed to talk, so he just stared at Ichirou with a 'you're kidding right?' expression. While he tried to figure out if Ichirou was crazy or not, he began to think about what he did want to do that day. He was really hungry, so eating would be nice. And then he really didn't know what else. LAtely, Kishi had been spending more and more time by himself doing nothing.
Kishi thought about all this in a matter of seconds, and came out of his thoughts realizing Ichirou was nudging him, looking hopeful. "I'll go, but this won't end well," Kishi said, voice a mix of bored and defeated. He then turned, looking back out the window. Were they at the school yet? It was taking way too long.

It had been a cold walk to the main Sohma estate. Though Nani could drive she decided to walk with Yoshino to the family meeting.

The meal had been the same as always. Nani was absolutely terrified of Yami, of his every movement and word. She occasionally grabbed for her younger sisters hand under the table and glanced at Ateryu from time to time to keep her calm. Yet there was something soothing about being among the other Zodiacs, it felt safe and 'normal' to be around those you did not have to hide from.

Nani managed to stay calm throughout the meeting, after all she had people who she loved to keep her mind balanced. However, she became incredibly uneasy when Yami made an example out of one of the maids. It was not in her personality to be nervous of frightened in fact she was rather blunt but it was just a control Yami had over her ever since that day.
After the charade of bullying the maid all the zodiacs were dismissed and Nani was the first out of the door to the street. Though she did wait for the others just outside the main gate.
' He is such a bastard...' she muttered before exhaling out a long breath.

It was the same as every morning, apart from the fresh snow that lay on the ground. Kenji could smell burnt toast as he looked out of his window at the large Sohma estate.
A wet nose nudged his hand, Simone the family dog was ready to be let out back. He pushed open his bedroom door and the fawn coloured dog scampered into the sitting room to play with Kenji's uncle.

Kenji grabbed a towel, took a shower and began to put on his school uniform. It was the same average morning he had every day.

' Kenji I'm making toast do you want any?' his uncle yelled from the kitchen.

Rather than reply Kenji walked from his own room to the Kitchen and took an apply from the fridge and indicated that he would rather have that. His uncle tried to make small talk, it was often awkward between the two, having no real family connection they both often sat in silence.

' The Sohma family gathered again today... A whole bunch of them. They are such a funny family, don't you think?'

' I have to go to school Uncle, I will see you afterwards'. Kenji hated talking about the Sohma family, they were the talk of the school and now a topic with breakfast.

With that Kenji left the house passing the Sohma estate as he went, he saw a few people leaving. Whatever they had been up to was over.

Tatsuko stared at her plate, moving food around as the other Sohma’s chatted animatedly amongst themselves. She wasn’t in a particular mood to ‘talk’ with her fellow kin, so she opted for keeping to herself. She could feel Yami’s eyes glancing at everyone, watching them, following their every move. She felt a slight chill roll down her spine as she tried to ignore the feeling and poked at the food placed in front of her. Her head snapped up at the sound of Yami’s voice when a maid sauntered into the eating area. Her frightful stare said it all as she mumbled and stumbled over her words. Yami ordered her out of the area and the woman left bumbling about, not before whispering something into his ear. Tatsuko sighed as she pushed the plate in front of her.

”This event is dismissed. You all may leave,” were the magical words to escape Yami’s mouth as everyone jumped and left the room. She stayed, sitting at the table before watching the events unfold between Yami and Keiko. She knew that Keiko was attached to the head of the family. Why was a question she wanted to know. He was…cruel. She shook the thought from her head before she pushed herself out of the chair. She didn’t want to be in the house any longer and she forced her legs to walk towards the entrance. With a final glance, Tatsuko made her way towards her own home on the estate.



The sun was out, shining brightly as Tatsuko blocked the sun from her eyes. She was a part-time librarian and she was on her way to work. It required little to no physical contact, something she was grateful for, and she enjoyed it. It gave her time to reflect on what happened the previous day, or if something needed to be done soon. She watched the cars pass by and took a closer look at one in particular. It was Ichirou’s car. She recognized it and it brought a small smile to her lips as she noticed two passengers. Both had snow-white hair so she assumed one of the inhabitants was Keiko. He cared so much for the girl, it almost caused a tinge of pain to cross into her heart and the unrequited feelings he shared with her.

She knew the feeling all too well. Although she never really spoke to him, Kishi had nonetheless captured her interest. She kept this crush to herself, not letting the others know, especially Yami. They would ridicule her for having even the slightest sentiment for the cat. She sighed and groaned to herself. Love sucked.

Keiko &Ichirou Sohma


Kishi just stared at Ichirou with a 'you're kidding right?' expression. Ichirou only laughed.

“Well, I have a few things to do after school, but I do happen to be ahead in all the classwork and homework. So I am sure I will be able to make it,” Keiko said with a smile.

"I'll go, but this won't end well," Kishi said, voice a mix of bored and defeated. He then turned, looking back out the window.

Before she knew it, they were in front of the school where some of Keiko’s closer friends awaited. “Thanks again for the ride Ichirou.” Keiko reached around the driver’s seat, hugging Ichirou tightly before carefully getting out.

“Bye Keiko! Have an amazing day at school! I love you,” Ichirou tried before Keiko shut the door. “Ready Kishi? The worst part of your day is over, that is, unless you make dinner a horrible explosion. So what do you want to do first?” Ichirou pulled off quickly, almost racing down the road. He loved going fast, but only when Keiko wasn’t in the car. She always turned into an old lady when he didn’t drive perfectly. Ichirou was careful until they were out of the school zone though. “This morning sucked ass, so well do whatever the hell ya want.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Keiko walked easily over to the three who waited at the gate for her. Misa, Shou and Kari both excitedly jumped over to her. “It’s freezing out here Keiko! Why did you take so long,” Misa started, grabbing Keiko’s hand and dragging her into the school. “Have I told you yet how hot your cousin is?”

“You’ve actually told me … ninety times, was it Kari?” The two girls smiled at each other, laughing.

“More like a thousand! Every morning it is the same. ‘Oh Keiko! I want to marry your cousin so we can have gorgeous babies together!’,” Kari replied.

“I don’t sound like that,” Misa playfully snapped. “Besides! Shou wants him!” The three laughed hysterically as Keiko only smiled. “Now hurry up! We can’t be late to class!” There was still plenty of time, so while the other three ran up to class, Keiko walked, making it with plenty of time to spare. Keiko was hoping that her cousins would make it in time, not knowing if they got rides or not. It was really cold out. Yimme had a moped, so as long as she bundled up, she might be okay. But Yoshino … maybe she should have had Ichirou wait and offer her a ride too … Her thoughts were interrupted when she entered the room, kids asking her questions or just flat out greeting her, leaving her no room to barely breathe until the teacher came in, telling everyone to get in their seats.

Kishi
Kishi sunk lower into his seat as they pulled up by the school. He doubted anyone there would know him, but he still didn't want to be noticed. If a family member was there, he didn't want to see them. Kishi couldn't help from rolling his eyes at Keiko's thank you and Ichirou's lame goodbye. Once Keiko left, Kishi sat up a bit more and finally turned away from the window, looking less distressed. “Ready Kishi? The worst part of your day is over, that is, unless you make dinner a horrible explosion. So what do you want to do first?” "Oh, come on, I'm not that bad.... Okay, usually. And I don't know. Food sounds good, I haven't eaten today. Is there a sushi place around here somewhere?" he asked. He didn't really get out much, or at least eat out much, so he had no idea what was around.
Kishi had to hold back a snicker when Ichirou pulled away from the school. He drove a lot different when Keiko wasn't in the car. Kishi liked it when he drived fast anyways, but that may because it reminded him Keiko wasn't there. “This morning sucked ass, so well do whatever the hell ya want.” At this, Kishi finally laughed. "Yes, yes it did. But sushi is fine. There's nothing else I can think of to do..." he trailed off, sighing. Kishi wasn't really good with the whole "hanging out" thing, and he wasn't really sure what to suggest to do. "We can do whatever," he finally concluded.
Ryuu
Ryuu was hanging out in the coffee shop, nibbling at a muffin. He kept getting strange looks from the people inside, mostly because he wasn't leaving, just pacing around. He didn't want to go outside because of the temperature. He'd have to wear the stupid coat. But, he didn't want to spend his whole life in a coffee shop. "Maybe I should just go home," he thought out loud, too loud actually, since he got a few glares from people peacefully drinking tea and coffee. Ryuu rolled his eyes before sticking his tongue out at all of them.

Ichirou Sohma


"You're on," was all Kishi said.

“Good! This is going to be fun,” Ichirou retorted. Silence then fell upon them as they ate, but to Ichirou it wasn’t one of those awkward ones. It was a nice one. Of course there was the chitter chatter of others around them, but it wasn’t horribly loud. Something about the low hum of voices calmed him. “I have a question,” Ichirou stopped momentarily. “Don’t you like being outside? I mean, not locked up all the time? I don’t really understand why Yami didn’t confine you after you graduated.” Ichirou’s voice was hushed to the point where only the two of them could hear. “Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad you’re not … but why so tense around everyone. People that don’t know about us aren’t going to look at you different, they don’t know you. I think you should get out more, make friends. Ya know, other than me,” Ichirou said with a smile.

It seemed as if Ichirou had no perception of what was okay to say around some and what wasn’t. If Kishi was getting upset at all, it was completely impossible for Ichirou to know. “Maybe Yami doesn’t want to confine you … maybe someone else has caught his eye, maybe he wants someone else to be locked away forever.”




Keiko Sohma


Keiko noticed Yoshino walk in, but Yimme never appeared. She was at the meeting today … she might have been skipping. The late bell rang, all calm, when a very tired looking Yimme appeared. Keiko wanted to say something, I’m glad you didn’t skip, or Happy you’re here, … but something about talking to the other Sohma, besides Ichirou, just made her choke up. Then a thud came from somewhere in the back of the room. Everyone but Keiko looked back, considering the fact that she was taught to never take her eyes off the teacher if another student was disrupting. “I'm OK guys, just a little trip,” Kenjiko Hima said. It was her job to know everyone in her class and the other class reps. His voice was easy to identify.

“You Young man are a trouble maker, sit back down before you embarrass yourself further,” the teacher barked at him. It didn’t take long for the teacher to begin lecturing, and Keiko was trying hard to keep focused. There were just too many things buzzing around in her little head.

“Psst, Keiko,” Shou said. He sat directly beside her, so it was hard to ignore. “Keiko,” he whispered a little louder. She simple shook her head.

“Mister Shou, you really should be paying attention. If you have a question, ask me. Don’t bother the other students.” Mrs. Takahira shook her head and went on talking.

“Keiko,” Shou tried again. “Keiko!” Finally, she gave in and looked at him. “I love you.” Keiko’s eyes opened wide into a ‘seriously’ stare. With nothing to say, she looked back at the teacher. Something was telling her that was going to be a very long class.

Nani didn't seem to be getting through to anyone at the cafe, the manager was not willing to listen and Daisuke was getting angry shouting at Nani to sit down.

Checking her watch she realised the time, if she wanted to make it back home in time to help Taiga with the house she was going to have to leave for the market.

'Ateryu are you staying? I'm going to head off, this coffee break has turned into a lot more than a short break... I'll catch you later Daisuke, I really need to get shopping feel free to pop round later.'

With that Nani left the cafe into the winter sun. She pulled a small white wool hat from her bag and placed it onto her pink hair, she also pulled out her purse. The cafe was only a few doors up from the market, she could smell fresh fish as soon as she entered. She got the usual fish, meat and cleaning products and took the items to the till.

((Small time skip here to the shrine))

Nani entered the shrine
' Hello Taiga... I have the shopping' she yelled before placing the food and product on the kitchen floor.

Kenji tried to focus but he couldn't. School was not his forte and he had lost his drawing book. He kept looking into the back of peoples head and staring endlessly. He could see people whispering infront of him, mainly boys trying to grab Keiko Sohma's attention. The same as always....

He placed his head onto the desk and brushed his hand through his dark hair. How had he managed to lose his book, it was the only precious thing in his life other than Simone and his Grandmother.

His mind began to drift until he heard a whisper
here...

It was Yoshino Sohma, a pink haired girl who was rather pretty handing over his sketch book. He took it without hesitation, grinning like an idiot to show how much he appreciated what she had just done. He opened it to the last sketch in his book, it was a rough drawing which he ripped out and write 'Thank-you' on the bottom of handing it to the girl next to him.

'Are you passing notes Kenji.... stop disturbing people and get out of my class'
Crap... he had been caught out, again making a fool of himself.
He stood up and left the class.

| Yoshino Sohma |

Yoshino immediately felt guilt course through her body as Kenji obeyed the teacher, leaving the class so as to avoid disrupting it once more. The pink haired girl watched him go with reserved red eyes before she sighed and quietly packed her notepad, glancing to the teacher as the door shut.

"Takahiro-sensei?" The Sohma murmured softly, her pale skin tone making this act easier for her as she cleared her throat. "I don't feel very well..." Truthfully, she felt nauseous. Yoshino had never been one to handle the feeling of guilt very well and it was, quite literally, making her feel horrible inside. Takahiro-sensei, after a few moments, nodded and motioned to the girl to leave. "Go see the nurse or call someone to come get you," she muttered before turning back to her notes and continuing the lesson.

Yoshino was silent as she grabbed her bag and walked out of the classroom, shooting a glance to the Rat and Rabbit of the Zodiac as she closed the door behind herself. Keiko was the Head of the Sohma family's pet, so to speak, and Yimme was a kind but emotional girl; however, she hoped that both Sohma's wouldn't bring her sudden 'illness' up later.

With this in mind, the pale skinned girl made her way down the hall and out into the chilly weather as she headed toward her favourite tree. It was an old withered sakura tree and rested on the outer parts of the field where many students often had their lunch. Speaking of students... Yoshino could see someone already there and her guess turned out to be right on the mark as she came upon Kenjiko Hima.

He was sitting comfortably against the trunk of the tree, his body hiding from the biting wind that called restlessly. He held his sketchbook in one hand, the other holding a pencil which lightly brushed the page and transformed it from a blank slate to a progressive piece of art.

"May I sit with you?" Yoshino spoke up, her voice filling a soundless break the wind had taken. Without even waiting for the male's response, the female seated herself in a way that was decent and respectable. After all, she had her school uniform on. Stupid skirts.

She tilted her head to watch Kenji's hand fly over the paper but he had stopped and, instead, raised her red-eyed gaze to meet his. "What are you drawing, Hma-san?" The teenager asked softly, her eyes the only part of her expression that appeared even slightly closed off; a typical sight when it came to the Sohma.

Keiko Sohma


Keiko's eyes flashed from the front to where he cousin was sitting, defying her rule to pay attention. "Takahiro-sensei? I don't feel very well..."

"Go see the nurse or call someone to come get you," the teacher muttered before turning back to her notes and continuing the lesson.

Before Yoshino made her exit, she glanced at Keiko and assumingly the Rabbit, Yimme. Keiko's face was a mask that held a tinged of worry for her slightly younger cousin. If she was truly feeling sick .... then that would be horrible. Keiko knows what it's like to feel sick, so of course she knew it wasn't fun. "Please let her be okay," Keiko uttered before trying her best to return her attention to her teacher. Reading ... yay, Keiko thought to herself. But now is not the time to be like this. I should be grateful for this lesson ...


Ichirou Sohma


Ichirou blocked the punch Kishi had thrown, slightly surprised. "Come on Kitty Kitty. This the best you got? I give you the chance to beat me up and this is what I get?" Ichirou threw a punch back, not hard, then jumped back to avoid anything coming to him. "Just think of all those times I beat you up, before we were friends. Do me a favor and do it to me!"
