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.

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.

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.

REI SOHMA & YOUKO *KOKO* RIYASHEE
Sohma House & Phuk Et Cafe



"This event is dismissed. You all may leave"

That was all Rei needed to hear before she stood bowed to God, in an almost sarcastic manor, and dashed out of the Sohma Residence. She was so going to be late for work. She jumped on her bike and peddled like her life depended on it…because it sort of did. Two jobs and college, what a life…she felt like she seriously needed a break but she couldn’t afford to…not only was she supporting herself but her sick mother as well…She skidded to a halt in front of the Café she worked at and dashed in, putting her apron on in the process. Running to the clock in computer she paused in wonder as she looked at her work status….she was already clocked in?

“You are so lucky I like you” Said a feminine voice from behind her. Rei let out a sigh of relief as she tuned around to face the slightly taller, beautiful older woman. Rei smiled at Koko, her co-worker and her flat mate.

“Thank you so much!” Rei said as she hugged Koko with a smile then brushed her fingers through her long bubble gum pink hair and smoothed down the café’s uniform, which was a white blouse and short black skirt.

“You are the BEST Youko” she said and grinned.

“Why where you late this time?” Koko asked with a look that said she knew what Rei was going to say.

“Family emergency?” Rei said hesitantly with a small weak smile. Koko Rolled her eyes.

“Ya okay, just get to work…you know some day you’re going to trust me enough to tell me why you always have these family emergencies and why dating is out of the question…and why you are a vegetarian too…” Koko said as she handed the younger girl the platter and turned to finish her own order.

Rei felt her smile drop for a moment…she could never tell anyone about the curse…it was hard keeping it from the world…but it would be harder to explain to the world. She shook off the gloom with a smile and started work, serving a group of older women first then taking the order from some other.

Youko watched the younger girl with a small frown. She knew it was none of her business but she worried about the girl…she was sort of like a sister to her and she didn’t want anything to happen to her. She sighed as she brushed her own strands of stray hair out of her face and put on her work smile as she went to greet customers.

"yo Rei! how's it going" a masculine voice that Rei new so well called. Sh turned and smiled at him and the rest of the group.

“Daisuke….what brings you here cutie? Oh, Hello, Yimme, Ninato, Ateryu Come, have a seat, I’ll be over to get your order in just a minute.” Rei said as she turned to grab another order off the counter.

“Rei, don’t dally girl, I don’t want to have to fire you” the owner called to Rei making her shuffle faster. An older man slid his foot out of the booth and down Rei went. The man whistled as he could see her pale pink panties. Rei turned bright red as people began laughing. She sat there for a moment, wearing a bowl of clam chowder and sticky white rise before she pulled herself up with as much dignity as she could and started cleaning up the mess.

She felt like crying but wouldn’t give the man the satisfaction. People continued to laugh as her boss came out and yelled at her.

“Clumsy girl! Now look what you’ve done!” her boss yelled. Rei said nothing just continued to clean, only because she really needed the job. Youko watched with irritation and worry wanting to go tell the man and their boss where they could shove their job but she knew the consequences for that would be dire for Rei so she sat back and waited for the girl to come to the kitchen so she could comfort her.

Ateryu glared at the man Daisuke held up. He was feral looking, grinning and laughing before but now shaking in surprise and fear. Disgusting. She sighed and walked to a table where she kicked the chair out from it a bit and sat, leaning back and putting her hands behind her head. She hoped Rei was ok, her boss was a jerk but she knew the girl had handled men like that before.

"I saw it clearly. Dai you should just kick his ass, show him for perving on an innocent girl."

Nani nodded in agreement about the cafe, though she had to be back home to make lunch for Yoshi, a cake at the cafe wouldn't hurt.
Nani smiled at the two younger girls that joined them but her mother Hen vibe began to shine through.
' Yimmie I would prefer you went to school, it's not wise to be skipping or listening to Daisuke' she scowled at him as she spoke but then smiled briefly.
She engaged in general chit chat with Ateryu on the way, mostly about work and life. They had been friends for a while now and Nani could always knew she could trust her though Nani did trust easily unless it came to her sister.

As they entered the cafe Nani noticed Rei and smiled at her taking the seat that was offered. She barely hadtime to breathe before Rei clambered to the floor. In all honestly Nani had not seen the accident and being quite conservative she did not want to be involved but Daisuke began to shout. Felling it her duty she gently stood up and placed a hand on his shoulder to let him know she would handle it. She gathered from the older gentleman's smile that it was he who had tripped Rei up.
'Try to calm down Ram...' she muttered before indicating for Ateryu to follow her.
She headed over the owner of the cafe ' Your staff member was tripped by a customer, if you would be so kind to make him apologize before my friend over there makes him with force'.
It wasn't a threat, but Nani liked things to be kept neat but she was also protective of people just like a mother her and Rei did not deserve to be bullied.

Kenji took his seat next to the pink haired Sohma. There were other Sohma's dotted around the room but they never seemed to acknowledge each other which always confused him.

Kenji went to unzip his bag to get out his work pad only to find the bag already open without his book in. He panicked a little and frantically began looking around his desk, causing himself to push his chair back and fall off it. He lay for about five seconds before jumping up to the sound of laughter
' I'm OK guys, just a little trip' he laughed nervously when his eye caught the teacher.

' You Young man are a trouble maker, sit back down before you embarrass yourself further' the teacher barked at him, this was a regular occurance for Kenji so it didn't bother him much, though he was worried about his sketchbook.

Suzume gasped when the man tripped the girl that the other's talking to when they entered the cafe and she just shook her head in shock when the girls Boss belittled her afterwards when it was obvious. The poor girl didn't say anything and just started to clean up the mess that was no her fault.

Suzume immediately went down to the floor and started to help the girl named Rei, she knew that it would probably be odd for a total stranger to help her. But there was no sense in her cleaning the whole thing by herself.

"Here I'll help you out" she said as she picked up a bowl that had went flying.

She then pulled a cloth from her bag and started to use it to help clean up some of the chowder that had spilled on the floor. She then put the bowl on the tray that Rei had been holding in the first place.

"There..." Suzume tucked a piece of hair behind her ear when she got a good look at Rei she was sure they had some classes together when they were in high school. "Rei... right I think we were in home room together during my last year of high school. My names Suzume Nakashima."

Girls you saw that to didn't you!"

Suzume turned when she heard... what had they called him Daisuke yes that's right.

"Yes Daisuke we saw it but, bullying back a bully isn't going to help Rei" she said quietly but still loud enough to be heard.

She was sure that after his actions that Rei might loose her job for his hasty reaction. She understood that they wanted to protect Rei but perhaps the family was going about it in the wrong way.

She turned back to Rei, "Here you should go back you have chowder all over the front of you, I might have a change of clothes in my that might fit you if you need it. I think we're about the same size".

Daisuke looked to Nina when she put her hand on his shoulder and his grip loosened on the man before pushing him away. Damn hen she may be hot but she had act all motherly ALL THE TIME. He thought as they went to talk to the manager. Sometimes a strong hand was needed she couldn't talk her way out of everything.

"Tsk" he was aggravated and once he saw the stranger helping rei he grew more irritated. Sitting back in the booth he stared out of the window and watched the snow. Waiting for either the situation to be over or be called to rough up the customer.

Either way he was staying and getting some hot cocoa. To see Rei so active from one table to the next looking cute and flustered. He smiled lightly as he drifted in his own world for a few seconds. He thought this would turn out differently. He'd make I the boss and Customer apologize to rei and she would fawn over his heroism. But this was reality and that never seemed to work in his favor.

Yimme was still following the group as they walked into the cafe with everyone. But in the back of her head there was a voice that kept re-stating what Ninato said before.

" Yimmie I would prefer you went to school, it's not wise to be skipping or listening to Daisuke"

Yimme started to think that she was right. Why was she listening to Daisuke!? When has he ever done the right thing! When all of the commotion started to happen Yimme just watched from her seat. She couldn't stop getting the idea that something was happening important at school. But if she deiced to wimp out and go to school first of all she would get into trouble for being late and second of all she would never hear the end of it from Daisuke.

So when most everything was settle Yimme went up to Ninato and said "Ninato I think I am going to go to school you were right it's not wise to skip out." Then she ran out the door not looking at the others. Yimme was a good girl she didn't want to be a bad person she had to keep her innocence it was one of the last things she had.

After getting her moped and driving to the school she was defiantly late. She grabbed her bags and ran threw the front door and towards the class room. Yimme slowed down and stood out side the door for a second, she took a giant breath and open the door. The teacher instantly stared her down. "I'm sorry that I was late I have a good excuse!" The teacher just pointed to a open seat. Yimme in shame hung her head and walked towards the open seat and sat down ready to learn. She looked out the window and thought to her self. 'Maybe I should have stayed with the others...'

Everything happened so fast, a girl helped Rei pick up the mess, as her boss gave her the 'you are in so much trouble' look. I felt as though her feace was going to melt from the heat.

Daisuke had defended her....and it would probably get her fired....but damn he had defended her! She couldnt help but smile but she buried it not wanting her boss to see..

"Thank you Suzame" She said and bowed as she took the tray back to the back room.

"Your fired" She heard from behind her as soon as she walked through the door to the kitchen. Rei felt her heart stop and saw her mothers face in her mind. How was she going to pay for her meds now? She felt her eyes well up with tears and tried to fight them.

"Now thats not fair!" Koko exclaimed

"My decisions final, that man out there is threatening to sue if i don't get rid of the brat." the woman snarled then walked out of the kitchen.

"I'm so sorry Rei....we'll get you another job i promise....one with a boss that isnt a total bitch." Koko said with a weak smile. Rei froced a smile back then took off her apron and headed towards the cafe exit.

Taiga Sohma

The meeting had been surprisingly short; it wasn't like Taiga minded in the least, though. He still had plenty of work to do cleaning up the shrine and he hoped to get it all done before too many people came by. By the time he got out of the estate, everyone else seemed to have already gone elsewhere. He certainly didn't blame them for hurrying to get out of the snow, though.

Thankfully it wasn't a particularly long walk back to the shrine, though he knew he'd be out in the snow again shortly anyway. Within a couple minutes he had arrived, panting slightly from the quick pace he had taken up the steps to the Torii gate. Frowning slightly as he realized the branches of the trees on either side of the gate were beginning to encroach it, he shook his head and continued forward, making a note to deal with it later.

Hurrying around to the back of the shrine and through the door into the living quarters, he changed into a slightly heavier white keikogi and a gray-green hakama. Pulling on another layer of gloves over the thin cotton ones he was already wearing, he pushed his white hair out of his face and grinned. Returning to the yard, he grabbed a snow shovel, a heavy-duty broom, and a bucket of salt and quickly set to work clearing the ablution pavilion, and the path back to the living quarters, of snow and ice.

Torako Toushi

Torako yawned as he made his way to the shrine for his almost-daily visit. It wasn't a long walk from the university and the caretaker was nice and kept the place clean, so he did tend to enjoy making the visit, even on snowy days. He had decided to make a slight detour today, however. Heading through the town to stop at a cafe, he stopped just inside the door, surprised at the commotion inside. There was a waitress with chowder all over her, a table full of Sohmas, a very disgruntled customer, and an angry cafe owner.

"Two hot chocolates to go, please." he waved at the owner as he came in.

Humming the melody he'd been working on in class earlier, he took a seat at one of the unoccupied tables and pulled his music composition notebook and a pencil out of an inside pocket of his jacket. Flipping the thin book open to the midpoint, he tapped his eraser absently on the table to the time of the music he was humming as he tried to figure out how to finish the song.

Daisies looked around and wondered where yimmie went off to but eventually shrugged it off. He growled waiting for Nani to finish talking. He had a feeling it wouldn't matter anyway. His eyes narrowed at the perv before growling. "You Nani Ateryu sit down!" He yelled to them before lookimg at the menu. He wasn't going to leave anytime soon.

"I want to drink something maybe even get something to eat already" he sighed and closed his eyes. His elbow went on the table and his chin rested in his hand. "Rei" he whispered to himself before looking at suzume. "What are you anyway. Some stalker. Why where you in front of the Sohma house hmm?" He thought she was pretty cute. Just not as cute as rei.

Rei felt her eyes water and her heart break a little bit, it was hard to bite back the tears but she wouldn’t cry until she was out of the café. She wouldn’t let people see her cry. She felt like her knees where weak and her stomach was turning. How was she supped to support her mother now? She couldn’t stand it any more, halfway through the café she started running to the door, with her hand over her mouth to stop the sobs.

Koko watched Rei break down and wanted to go after her, but one of them had to keep their job today because the rent had to be paid. She sighed and looked around trying to think if something to do. She spotted the boy that had got her fired and felt herself get angry. Good intentions or not this was his fault. She clenched her teeth and walked over with her tablet.
“Can I take your order?....Never mind actually, why don’t you take mine. You just got Rei fired. She is out there somewhere crying and hurt, and you’re just going to sit her, you insensitive selfish jerk! Do something!” She hissed with fury, then she turned on her heel and walked away.

Daisuke looked at the one yelling at her. "Fired?" He saw rei run out and quickly went after her. No. How did this happen. Why would they fire her it wasn't her fault at all. Dammit he messed up bad.

"Rei!" It didn't take him long to catch her. Grabbing her wrist stopping her.

"I'm so sorry rei. I didn't mean to get you fired I was just upset at what that perv did. I'll rough up the manager. I'll get your job back."

Looking into her eyes as a blush formed over his cheeks. "Maybe you can get a new job. I know another cafe but...it's well...." His hand went behind her head rubbing it gently. "It's one of those cosplay cafe. You know were all the girls wear those se...cute.. maid outfits. You're cute enough I'm sure they'd hire you" he smiled some hoping it would cheer her up.

"Since you have the day off...I...I..could take you out....make up for it...though I did promise ateruy a drink too. So she might want to tag along "

He was very frustrated that he was so nervous talking to her. He had always liked rei. Since they where little. But it was one of the things yami didn't like. At the moment he didn't care. He'd take whatever punishment was given. Just to make sure she was smiling again like she was suppose to.

Torako Toushi

Torako, engrossed in his composition, hardly noticed the commotion around him. What did snap him back to reality was the fact that he'd been sitting there for much longer than he should've just for two cups of hot chocolate. Getting up, he tucked his notebook and pencil into his jacket pocket just as the owner came hurrying over with two cups of coffee.

"Here you go, sir. I apologize for the wait, but one of our waitresses was causing trouble."

Torako raised an eyebrow at the owner. "She may have caused a single accident or whatever happened, but at least she always gets my order right, idiot." he'd been a regular at the cafe for some time and he almost always ordered the same thing, so it bothered him that his order was brought to him incorrectly.
"I'm leaving. It's not worth my time to come to a cafe run by an idiot that fired one of his most competent workers." sticking his hands into his pockets, he turned and headed outside.

After wandering for a few minutes, he stumbled upon the waitress girl, her name was Rei if he remembered correctly, and one of the boys that had been in the cafe when he'd first arrived.

"Yo. If you need a job, I can probably hook you up with one at the gym I work at. It would probably just be running errands, but the people are nice, at least. He pulled his music composition notebook and pencil out of his pocket, flipped through to the back page, and wrote down his phone number and name on it before tearing out the page.
"Here. Call this number if you're interested." pulling out his phone to check the time, he cursed quietly to himself. "Ah, if I don't hurry up and make my stop by the shrine now I'll be late getting back for lunch."

Handing the page to Rei, he waved as he tucked his notebook and pencil into his pocket and took off at a jog in the direction of the shrine. As he ran, it vaguely occurred to him that he hadn't even introduced himself to the girl, but he half-hoped she'd remember him from his daily trips to the cafe. Truthfully, he couldn't think of a viable reason as to why he'd given the girl his number and offered her a job. It wasn't like the gym needed a new employee; they were doing fine with everyone they had already. Shaking his head, he chuckled. It was a little late to be thinking about all that.

Within a couple minutes, he'd arrived at the shrine to find the white-haired caretaker, Taiga, finishing up clearing the steps of ice and snow.

"Good afternoon, Taiga! Sorry I'm late, but there was a commotion at the cafe, so I also seem to have no hot chocolate. Is there anything I can help you with today?" he grinned. He usually came by earlier in the day with hot chocolate and helped out around the shrine. It wasn't that he enjoyed cleaning, but the presence of the friendly caretaker was pleasant.


Taiga Sohma

Taiga shivered. His nose had long gone numb from the cold as he worked to clear the steps, leading up to the shrine, of snow and ice. He couldn't help but grin, though, as a familiar face popped into view.

"Little Tiger!" he teased the younger boy with the literal meaning of his name, as he often did. "Don't worry about it, I understand perfectly. You don't always have to come help out if you don't want to, though. You should know that."

"It's no problem! You know I enjoy visiting." Torako grinned back.

"Ah, let's see. If you're feeling daring today, one of the trees is starting to block the Torii gate. I was hoping to get it cleared up before Nani got back, but I don't think I'll have enough time to do it myself." looking back up, Taiga wasn't surprised to see that Torako was already gone in search of the tree clippers.

Shaking his head, Taiga chuckled to himself as he finally finished up the steps. Jogging back up to the shrine, he set to work cleaning up the temizuya; making sure the water and water ladles were all clean, as well as the temizuya itself. That didn't take long, so he moved on to the Haiden and began cleaning the flooring in there.

Despite being in a different section of the shrine, he heard Nani's call loud and clear. Putting away his cleaning supplies, he headed out of the Haiden and back around to the living quarters tucked behind the Honden. Stepping inside, he took off his shoes and headed into the kitchen.

"Welcome back! I'm almost done with the cleaning, so I'll get started on lunch shortly." he smiled and bowed slightly, more out of habit than anything else. He'd always felt that women ought to be treated with more respect than his fellow men, so he tended to be a little more formal with them. Nani, even though she resided at the shrine with him, was no exception.

Ateryu raised her eyebrow at Daisuke and the whole commotion. Giving a soft smile at his persistence to express his hidden feelings for Rei, the ox stood to get some coffee. Nani was leaving to do her shopping and then go to the shrine, so Ateryu would have her coffee and meet her there.

After placing the order several things happened at once. Rei's boss yelled at her again and fired her, which was totally unfair. After that a friend who worked with her had some angry words to Daisuke and he ran out looking guilty, probably to go speak to his crush. The guy who was sitting at the counter also rushed out after speaking some harsh words to the owner of the cafe and Ateryu swore she had seen him somewhere. She blinked and let out a breath at everything before grabbing her coffee and taking a large gulp. The group had gone their separate ways, Yimme had gone to school after Rei fell and Nani had already left to do her shopping. There was no one interesting her to watch so Ateryu decided to leave as well. Waving and sending a friendly and apologetic smile to Rei's friend she walked through the door.

Daisuke, Rei and the guy from the counter were all outside chatting and she nodded to them, not wanting to interrupt but decided to offer some form of explanation. After the guy handed Rei something she walked over.

"Hey, Dai, I'm going to go catch up with Nani ok? You and Rei have fun, we'll all get together for a catch-up some other time. Rei sorry for how things turned out.....but don't worry I know something will work out. They always do I guess." She wasn't sure what else to say so she headed off. The morning had been certainly interesting but she was looking forward to having a few hours of quiet at the shrine.

The walk was peaceful and quiet as she sipped her coffee. It wasn't at all how she liked it...but coffee was coffee she supposed. She walked past a gym that had some people boxing and she nearly didn't give a second look. But the people in it looked familiar.... Was it... yes it was. There was Kishi, Ryuu and she figured it must have been Ichirou. Ateryu was about to wave a hello but they seemed very into their activities. With a smile she finished her coffee and kept walking.

Figuring she wouldn't be able to find her friend if she looked int he shopping area Ateryu decided to head straight for the shrine. It was a quiet walk and she took her time, stretching every now and then when her arms felt a bit stingy from the cold. Why was it so cold in these parts? She couldn't decide if she liked it or not...

Coming up to the shrine she could see people were already getting busy with chores and things. Maybe Taiga would have something to do for her. There was also the guy from the cafe...which would explain why he looked so familiar. She walked up to Taiga.

"Mornin', bit cold out today Taiga. Has Nani returned from shopping yet?" She wasn't trying to sound rude, she was blunt and hopefully the other Sohmas were used to it by now.

"Rei!" Rei heard from behind her before someone grabbed her wrist. She swung around ready to be angry but found it was Daisuke.

“Oh…hi” she murmured while whipping her eyes.

"I'm so sorry rei. I didn't mean to get you fired I was just upset at what that perv did. I'll rough up the manager. I'll get your job back."

Rei smiled a little bit and shook her head. He always seemed to jump to violence…but he wanted to protect her, and that mattered to her.

Looking into her eyes as a blush formed over his cheeks. "Maybe you can get a new job. I know another cafe but...it's well...." Rei's eyes lit up at the prospect but became weary when she heard the but.

"It's one of those cosplay cafe. You know were all the girls wear those se...cute.. maid outfits. You're cute enough I'm sure they'd hire you" he smiled some hoping it would cheer her up. Rei turned red but nodded.

“That would be great….” She said with a smile.

"Since you have the day off...I...I..could take you out....make up for it...though I did promise ateruy a drink too. So she might want to tag along "

“I don’t want to intrude on you and Ateruy, go ahead and take her out, ill just--

"Yo. If you need a job, I can probably hook you up with one at the gym I work at. It would probably just be running errands, but the people are nice, at least.” Rei heard from her left. She looked at the man unsure of who he was. He pulled his music composition notebook and pencil out of his pocket, flipped through to the back page, and wrote down his phone number and name on it before tearing out the page.

"Here. Call this number if you're interested." He said before pulling out his phone to check the time, he cursed quietly to himself. "Ah, if I don't hurry up and make my stop by the shrine now I'll be late getting back for lunch."

Handing the page to Rei, he waved as he tucked his notebook and pencil into his pocket and took off at a jog in the direction of the shrine.

Rei looked at it for a second then tucked the note in her pocket.

"Hey, Dai, I'm going to go catch up with Nani ok? You and Rei have fun, we'll all get together for a catch-up some other time. Rei sorry for how things turned out.....but don't worry I know something will work out. They always do I guess." Ateryu said before walking off. Now ie felt bad….she had ruined her friends chance to go out.

“I’m Sorry…..” she murmured as she looked at Daisuke.

He had watched the guy give her his number and narrowed his eyes. Daisuke got jealous easy and was happy to see him job off instead of sticking around. "Tsst what a lame reason to give someone their number" his eyes wondered back to Rei thinking about her going with that other guy. His hand went to her shoulder.

"No no you wouldn't be any inconvenience to me or Ateryu at all. She won't care" once he said that Ateryu came out saying she had to go. That made him even happier. Not that he hated her. He actually had a small crush on her as well. But he had to cheer up rei, he made her lose her job. "Alright see ya. Ill buy you that drink I promised okay?" He waved to her before taking Rei's hand.

They walked down the street pasted the busy market place. Not letting go of her hand until they were in full stride together. "Sorry about losing your job.. I didn't mean to get you fired. Just that perv pissed me off when he tripped you. And then the manager...why the hell would he fire you! You didn't do anything.....and your coworker is a bitch....no offense but she just started yelling at me." Crossing his arms and growled. "She's got a mouth on her"

Daisuke waved to Ateryu before taking Rei's hand.

They walked down the street pasted the busy market place. He didnt let go of her hand until they were in full stride together.

"Sorry about losing your job.. I didn't mean to get you fired. Just that perv pissed me off when he tripped you. And then the manager...why the hell would he fire you! You didn't do anything.....and your coworker is a bitch....no offense but she just started yelling at me." Crossing his arms and growled. "She's got a mouth on her"

Rei frowned then grinned.

"So thats why you came after me....Koko guilt tripped you huh...she does have a mout on her...but isnt that how you like your women Dia-chan?" Rei said with a laugh before her attention was caught by some small Zodiac figurines in the window of a store. She bet down and examined them closely.

"they are beautiful..." She murmured feeling slightly at a loss for the day not only because she had lost her job so she could spend no money but because she knew the truth about the zodiacs....

"All of us are cursed....is there any way to break it? probably not....but that doesnt mean we cant still be happy right?" she murmured mostly talking to herself.

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

Youko Sighed as her shift came to an end. She was so tired of dealing with people....she really needed to just take a break....To the gym she would go! She smiled at hte prospect of beating the living hell out of a punching bag....she needed to release some of her pent up rage from the past few days. Rei's loss was just the cherry at the top of the shit cake. She sighed ad packed up her stuff before heading outside. She jumped on her motorcycle and headed in the direction of the gym.

Once there she wrapped her hands and wrists in white tape, changed into a black tank top and short black shorts. She went out barefoot as she felt more free that way. She took a deep breath and bowed to the bag as if it where a real opponent then started...for lack of a better word....wailing on it. She moved with furious persition and acurate strength, with no sighn of stopping any time soon.

Break it please...but if you want ill by you those and you can break them...it's obviously not the same thing" his eyes fell upon the figurines for a moment. "I can even get a little god toy you could break to" his hands went behind his head and turned away. "Breaking things...mainly faces...makes me happy" he smirked some. "One day I'll beat Yami up and get out of this town"

Blushing slightly as he looked to her. "I'll take you with me if you want. You won't have to work in crappy jobs." He laughed some and started walking expecting her to follow. "I would of chased you out the moment I saw you leave. But I was thinking of other things. It wasn't until your loud mouth friend told me you left. "

Looking back to her for a moment. "We can go up to the shrine if you want to hang out with the others. I know a few went there after the meeting this morning" he didn't care what they did. But he had gotten the feeling she didn't want to be around him all that much. Or maybe it was his own insecurities that made him that way. "I owe you for getting you fired so whatever you'd like."

Blushing slightly as he looked to her. "I'll take you with me if you want. You won't have to work in crappy jobs." He laughed some and started walking expecting her to follow. "I would of chased you out the moment I saw you leave. But I was thinking of other things. It wasn't until your loud mouth friend told me you left. "

Rei's eyes widened, not hearing the rest of what he said about her friend, all that was rining in her ears where the words "ill take you with me..." Did he really mean it? Would he? or was he saying that to make her feel better? could she really have a shot at getting out of this crappy life and living one of freedom...best of all with the guy she had been crusing on since forever? She didnt want to get her hopes up but her heart beat sped up like a drum and she stood staring at him.

Looking back to her for a moment. "We can go up to the shrine if you want to hang out with the others. I know a few went there after the meeting this morning" he didn't care what they did. But he had gotten the feeling she didn't want to be around him all that much. Or maybe it was his own insecurities that made him that way. "I owe you for getting you fired so whatever you'd like."

She still couldnt hear what he was saying, she tried to focus but, she couldnt wipe the giant grin off her face as her eyes watered. That was litterally the nicest thing anyone had ever said to her. Without thinking she ran up to him and threw her arms around his waist in a tight hug. She buried her head in his chest secretly inhaling his scent.

"Would you really let me come Dai-chan?" she whispered her face still tucked into his chest her watery eyes making marks on his shirt. She knew if she let go the embaressment would come flooding so she held on tightly, even if he wasnt going to hug her back...if he said no she would understand, but it would cut her like a knife.

She wasnt usually like this, she was usually stronger, but with her mother dying, and losing her job...she just needed a little support.

Would I really let you come?" He blushed heavily when she buried herself into his chest. He didn't know what to do. "Oh you mean if we could leave...yeah...if you wanted to. I'd take you wherever you wanted to go" slowly his hands went to her shoulders putting giving a very slight nudge. Not enough to really push off. "Will you quit it you are ruining my style Rei!" Flustered of corse, he could of just hugged her. Maybe even brought up her chin to press his lips to hers. But he couldn't. What would Yami do if they saw this.

Daisuke didn't think Yami would like it much if two of the zodiacs started dating let alone kissing. But daisuke wanted to do it badly. The hug was warm, inviting and rare specially from a girl. "Rei" screw Yami! A thousand punishments would be worth it. Rei wouldn't get hurt and he could take a few beatings.

He pulled away from rei to see the tears in her eyes, smiling gently he leaned down to meet her face. "Even if we don't go anywhere you are paradise by my side" closing his eyes he pressed his lips against hers. Hands placed on her hips for a moment before slipping around and pulling her deeper into his kiss. His cheeks where red and he was sure she could feel the pounding of his heart.
