Personality: "What? I'm not mean, i'm just being me."
~ Lazy - Careless - Lacks Confidence ~

Ichiro calls "Me Time" a time to lay down all day and do nothing. He will not lift a finger for anything if it's not important. If you want him to do something you better act like it's important or you won't see him when you want to see him. He'll come see you when he wants you to see him. He is a lazy jerk and no one can do anything about it. If your talking to him he'll stare at you for a while. Now he has the "I Don't Care" stare, the "Leave Me Alone" stare, or the "That's Good Go Away" stare. He might look angry most of the time but, that's just him trying to keep his eyes open. He'll ask people to get something that is a few inches next to him, and he won't take no for an answer. He won't do anything about it but, he'll keep complaining about that certain object.

Ichiro is a very careless guy, he'll forget to put his clothes in the dryer, he'll forget to feed the dog, he'll drop something fragile carelessly on the ground like it's a ball or something, he'll walk down the stairs and nearly break his ankle because, he forgot he could skip two step going down the stairs only up. One day he'll hurt himself and he's going to forget that something is broken and hurt himself again. But, luckily that day has not come for him, yet.

The bad thing in his personality is his confidence. Somewhere in him, he has it but, his laziness keeps telling him he doesn't. He will not believe that one day he'll get out of this stage of life, he just doesn't think like that. But, he is happy he is, it's just the confidence in doing daily things and relying on others he doesn't believe. Some people say he has confidence, he has confidence when he's debating but, the truth is he's just pointlessly arguing about something that he like and enjoys.

Likes:"Well, I might be lazy but, I do like things."
+ Being lazy
+ His friends
+ Nighttime
+ Smoking "Shh, don't tell anyone."
+ Nature
+ Music

Dislikes:"Keep these things away from me and i'll be your best friend. From afar."
- Cats
- Water
- Getting up
- Talking too much
- People who are moving around too much
- People who ask him to do things

Talents:"Oh my god. I have talents?"
β€’ Playing Violin & Piano

"Don't tell anyone. I don't do it anymore anyways."

Ichiro used to love playing classical songs with these classical sounding instruments. It used to be his dream to become a music artist. But, after that incident, he stopped doing it.

β€’ Debating

"Sometimes, and it is important to me. If the topic is worth it anyways."

Arguing for something he stands for is the most important thing to him. If someone disagrees he will argue with that person until they give up of until he gets tired and that isn't too often.

β€’ Creating
"Thats takes a lot of energy but, it's important."

If it is writing, drawing, painting, etc. it is something to create and bring lazy gives a person some time to come up with some things. Ichiro enjoys this and it gives him the courage to continue doing what he's doing and stay happy.

Flaws"I hear about these everyday."
β€’ Accidentally Showing That He Doesn't Care. When He Does

Sometimes when someone gets hurt, he'll just stare at them looking like he doesn't care. That's when his laziness gets the best of him, and he doesn't want that being the thing that hurts the ones he cares about. He wish he could do something but, he lacks everything he needs in order to help that person.
"It's like I can't move my body and I just sit there. I hate myself for it."

β€’ Not Trying To Get Anything Done

He will not do anything because, he has no motivation nor does he have the energy to do anything. His laziness has caught up to him on that note, to the point where he's used to being lazy.
"Of course i'll get it done. Just not this week or the next."

β€’ Lack Of Hope

When something is impossible for him to do, he doesn't hope for anything magical to happen and it ends up hurting him. Knowing that he lacked a lot of hope in the things he wished he could get.
"Psh! Hope? I don't hope for anything, not anymore."

β€’ Lack Of Self-Confidence

He doesn't encourage himself to keep doing what he's doing when he fails. He gives up and never tries to do it again. Even if someone tells him other wise, he will still lack that confidence most people have.
"I just don't believe in many things."

Fears"What's not to fear?"
β€’ Very loud noises

He'll think it's another plane crashing and he won't come out his room for weeks, he'll completely isolate himself and will not come out until he thinks it's safe. It doesn't matter what the sound sounds like he will still run for his life.
"Please tell me it's safe."

β€’ Cats

They freak Ichiro out. Every time they stare at him with those squinted eyes, he freaks out. He fears cats for that reason, their meows are fake to him, he thinks that one day cats will take over the world and make humans the pets and learn how to speak like humans do.
"They freak me out, just keep them away from me."

β€’ Musical Instruments

They are the reason he couldn't use his hands long ago. He will never touch a single instrument again, and he's afraid that if he does, he will never be able to use his hands ever again.
"I don't want to see one either."

Bio:"I don't want to talk about it.."
Ichiro was born into a family who lived around music, he started playing the piano at the age of 6 and the violin at the age of 9. His father constructed his own orchestra and his mother could sing in plays at very classy theaters. Even his older sister owned a dance class around a local area and he went to school around there as well. It made Ichiro want to have a career based around music just like his family. So he joined a lot of music classes, had a bunch of lessons, he was very happy where he was at. Music was a big part of his life and he didn't want anything getting in the way of that.

But, unfortunately something did get in the way, the only thing he needed to play instruments with and that was with his hands. He couldn't use his hands, he couldn't grab anything, he couldn't wave it, he couldn't bend his fingers, it was really hard and he felt horrible. His parents forbid him from getting close to any instrument until the doctor had said it was alright. It was as if something was missing, something was ripped out of him and stolen. His hands felt numb, it felt as if he didn't have any hands but, they were there. Ichiro was mad at himself he was mad because, he couldn't use his hands, everyday he'd sit at his window in his bedroom and count the days he couldn't play his instruments, he couldn't use his hands, and the more he counted the angrier he got.

But, as life moved on his hands had went back to working with the help of a few antibiotics and nasty medication. He was finally happy, finally free, and he didn't want to feel that way again. But, everything went to hell. Buildings shaking, planes crashing, people screaming in terror, he felt the ground shake and lift up from under him, that loud screeching noise that brought pain to his ears. Everything was going to hell, there was nothing he could do about it. Suddenly a building was falling towards him and it was as if everything was in slow motion and that was win his sister pushed him as far away from the building as possibly. But, it was too late for her. He watched as his sister was crushed by the building with many others. His body stood there, frozen, like a statue in a museum.

His parents were driving home when the incident happened and they didn't make it through the chaos to be with him. He was literally on his on once it was over. But, as he walked the streets alone crying everyday, his hands had stopped working again. He was helpless, powerless, he was just a mess. That was until that someone came in and swooped him from his depressing phase. This person literally nurse him back towards happiness and that person helped a couple other people who are now his new 'family' to this day. Everything is going great for him now, he is happy and he has people to care about.

June 26th, 7:30 AM

"And this," Began the person who had taken Sae from the orphanage, "will be your new family from now on, alright?" Her savior said, introducing her to the other five children who looked similar to her age; A lonely looking girl with black hair, a boy with blonde, another boy with light brown hair along with one with black and a touch looking girl with also brown hair.

Sae, not knowing what to say after the incidents, just stared at them all, not a word coming from her mouth, or any signs of emotion actually. After a long while of silence, she finally nodded and said silently, "Ok." And obediently.

Again, a another silence started before the person said, "Well.... go ahead and introduce yourself then."

The girl didn't exactly know how to do an introduction, so she only bowed, as her parents had taught her before their passing, and said monotonously, "Sae Rin Kang, nice to meet you."


After a little while of cringing and even sweating because of her dream, Sae shot straight up out of her bed before taking a little while to get back to reality. After noticing it wasn't her current life, she let herself sink back into the bed and sighed, "Again huh..."

But a simple dream of the past wasn't going to bring her down since it didn't bother her too much anymore. She looked at her alarm clock, noticing the time, and got out of bed immediately, grabbing a set of clothes she liked to cosplay with, and headed downstairs, passing the wall covered by maps and strings with pictures.

Sae was always trying to find that person who's face, voice, and gender she had forgotten, but that person she remembered to have given her a new home and family and saved her after she had lost everything. It was one of her greatest goals she wanted to complete, no matter the cost since that person was also very important to her, regardless of how little she knew.

So far, though, she had gotten no information, as hard as she tried and as long as she worked. She knew nothing about his/her whereabouts, and that was the main problem including what this person looked like after the seven years had passed since she last saw her savior. But it was still her life time goal she needed to complete.

She went down the stairs, but saw no one walking, in the kitchen, at least, no where she searched, which was basically the whole house except the garden outside. Sae was about to head outside to look, but figured everyone was asleep, or in the garden, somewhere she didn't look.

To fix this, she did something quite stupid and irrational. Sae walked over to the kitchen, somewhere she never really stepped into, and grabbed two pots. She didn't know how to cook, and wasn't very good at it either, so she had really no idea that banging them together, very loudly, would actually do damage to the two cooking utensils.

"Time to wake up everyone!" She shouted after standing in the hallway, still clanging the pots together before putting them aside, but yelling again, "Or Mommy's going to have to come up there and wake you all up herself!" She declared with a silly grin on her face, even though she was the very youngest of the group, but had the height similar to an adult's.

Sae then glanced over to the kitchen and felt the hunger closing in, 'If someone doesn't come down and make breakfast soon....' She grumbled, knowing that she'd probably burn whatever it is that she'd try and cook, which is why she wouldn't take her chances. Instead, she waited downstairs, right next to the railing at the bottom and took out on her her notebooks, starting to write her daily poetry since it was one of her only talents that she had.

Avaline carefully shaded in her sketch of the garden. She loved being outside, it had very interesting statues and flowers she had never seen before. Suddenly, a loud sound came from the kitchen. "What was that?" She whispered. She walked into the house and looked around.

She passed by one of the girls, but didn't say anything. She decided to go to the fridge and cook. She was alright at cooking, after all she would always make her family breakfast as a surprise. She found some simple ingredients and decided that she would make pancakes and eggs. She used to make it for her family all the time. She thought for a second and wiped aways a tear. She should't keep thinking about them. It was depressing and unhealthy, psychologically speaking.

She finished up making the food. It smelled great. She smiled, remembering when she had cooked for Mother's day. She had burnt everything, but her mother still ate it. She shook her head and put the pancakes and eggs on the table. She put out six plates and six glasses. It felt weird to know that this was her new family. She had trouble sleeping, and ever since her family died, she took at least two hours to sleep. Avaline sighed and headed towards the stairs.

Avaline saw Sae Rin Kang at the bottom of the stairs, writing in a notebook. "Oh... um breakfast's ready. Sorry.. if I disturbed you," She whispered, hanging her head a little.. "Could you tell the others?" She asked quietly, slinking down a little lower. She wasn't very used to talking to others outside of her old family, even then she didn't speak much, but it was her new family. She had to get used to them, she kept telling herself that. But she just couldn't see them as her family just yet.

"M-my hands. I can't feel my hands!" Looking around in the darkness, he couldn't see a thing. It was so dark. Then something bright from a far distance shined in his eyes. It was so bright, he was slowly slipping away from something but, he couldn't tell what. Why was he slipping? Opening his eyes, he stared up at the ceiling for a couple of minutes and sighed. Turning his head to look out at the window, wondering if it was sunny out.

"Damn sun. Why do you have to be so damn bright?" Wincing as the light hurt his eyes, he really hated the sun, especially he was trying to sleep. There was no possible way he could sleep now. Sighing, he sat up in his bed, looked around, and laid back down again. Looking over at the door,"Only if my bed was a little bit closer to the door." Shaking his head, he waited for a few minutes before he got up. Running his hands through his hair, he began to stretch his arms out but, he didn't want to lose his morning energy and decided to let his arms lay wherever they decided to lay.

Looking down at the ground, he couldn't help but, stare at his feet. Smiling at how weird they looked, he rubbed his eyes. He was about to lay back down when he heard a loud noise, his eyes widened slightly and he got down on the floor. Slowly backing away from the door, there was no way he was checking what was on the other side of that door. No way. Closing his eyes, he tried to calm himself before he decided to get up but, for now he just sat there, trying to keep himself from panicking.

After a few minutes of panicking, he slowly got up,"M-maybe somebody dropped something." Opening the door, he began to look around in the hallway. It looked like everything was still together. Sucking up all the courage he had, he walked downstairs towards the kitchen and sighed in relief when he saw everyone sitting at the table,"Whoever did that, it wasn't funny." Sighing again, he decided to plop himself on the couch, that was where he'd usually lay. He wasn't mad, well, actually he was but, he didn't want to waste his energy on talking, it wasn't important anyways. His heart was still beating at a quick pace but, he'd live.

"Morning..."

"Good morning Misaki!" Sae said with a small wave and smile, though she knew she most likely made the girl annoyed, seeing how she didn't take Avaline's breakfast and head outside, "Hmm... act like that and you're going to starve though..."

After a few seconds later, she heard a familiar voice saying, "Oh... um breakfast's ready. Sorry.. if I disturbed you,"

With those words, Sae literally jumped onto the girl, giving her a tight hug of relief and said, "Of course not, little Ava~ I've been waiting for your to come down because you're our only chef!" She cried, finally letting go, and added, "And you're family too! Can't do anything if the whole family is upstairs." Sae grinned and then another person came downstairs, apparently.

"Morning Sae, Ava-chan!"

"Good morning big Kano!" Sae said, since he was the oldest of the whole family.

"Sae's writing poems~~ Lemme read!"

She did feel someone's eyes on her little book after all as she turned around and found her friend trying to read her poetry she always writ. She also noticed something else, making her glance at his clothes, then back up at him as she closed the book, "Well, I don't let people who wet themselves at night read my poetry, that's for sure." She said before pushing him up one stair and saying, "Mommy needs you to get changed first, before you even eat breakfast!" Sae nodded at her own words.

"Geez! You had me worried, Sae!!"

Next down came Junbae, who seemed quite worried at the sound of the two pots hit together. Immediately, Sae apologize, of course, though she was a little sarcastic in the middle of it, "Aha, sorry there Junbae, but Mommy had to wake up all up somehow... It's 7:30 and you're all in bed still! We can't be having that now can we?" She asked, a wide grin on her face before then seeing him, not looking too good, with his head on the table, "Neh, you're not looking too well, are you?" She then thought maybe waking people up with pots perhaps wasn't much of a good idea, which is was definitely not.

"And then there's one more person..." Sae said, waiting patiently at the end of the stairs though her expression seemed to be showing a sort of... fierce attitude, like a bull who was about to charge.

Finally, Ichiro managed to get down the stairs, surprising Sae quite a bit because of his laziness, "Whoever did that, it wasn't funny."

He seemed to have been angry, something she didn't find new as she shrugged and said, "That'll be your new alarm clock if you don't get up earlier than that." Sae chuckled a little before heading to the kitchen, but then pausing, knowing that there was still one more person missing; Misaki.

'Of course she won't eat if she's still outside...' She thought to herself, walking into the kitchen and saying, "Um... Hey, can anyone go outside and find Misaki? I believe she's in the garden... and I would go myself, but..." He stomach seemed to have made a noise, "I'm hungry." Sae whispered before quickly grabbing a plate with little hesitation.

"Well, I don't let people who wet themselves at night read my poetry, that's for sure." She said before pushing him up one stair. He was a little confused by what she meant at first, but he looked down at his clothes as she continued speaking. The bottom half of his shirt and the left leg of his boxers were still wet. "Mommy needs you to get changed first, before you even eat breakfast!"

He felt his cheeks turn a little red and he pulled at the bottom of his shirt. "W-wait a minute! I didn't wet myself! I'm an adult! You're idea of an alarm just startled me and I spilled my glass! I-it's just water!" She was just teasing him, right?

"Geez! You had me worried, Sae!!"

Kano gave a quick wave to his friend. "Morning, Junbae!" He said happily, forgetting about Sae's comment. Junbae, however, didn't reply to him and instead went along looking seemingly tired, but Kano couldn't be sure.

"Aha, sorry there Junbae, but Mommy had to wake up all up somehow... It's 7:30 and you're all in bed still! We can't be having that now can we? Neh, you're not looking too well, are you?"

"It's too early.." The blonde mumbled under his breath and leaned himself against the railing of the stairs.

Finally everyone's favourite couch potato emerged from his room and came downstairs only to plop onto the sofa. Kano really couldn't understand how he could be so tired all the time. Kano would get bored just by sitting down for more than minute, yet Ichiro could lay around all he wanted without a single problem.

"Um... Hey, can anyone go outside and find Misaki? I believe she's in the garden... and I would go myself, but...I'm hungry."

Kano would've volunteered, but then he remembered that he needed to go get dressed if Sae was going to let him eat. He decided to let Avaline go ahead while he returned upstairs and change his outfit; a plain, grass green t-shirt with pale yellow trim around the neck, sleeves, and bottom and a pair of dark purple jeans. He at last realized he only had one sock on, and replaced that with a pair of two new ones before coming downstairs and entering the kitchen.

Ichiro couldn't help but, shake his head and sigh. Well, he couldn't help being lazy, it was what he was used to, and he had a perfect reason as to why he'd stop doing everything all together. No one knew the reason. Shaking his head because, of what Sae said,"Better not." He glared at nothing in particular and ignored it just this one time, he didn't want to waste any of his energy because of anger or, because he was annoyed. Looking up at Junbae as he walked in his light,"I'm what now?" Ichiro started to wonder if Junbae was starting to act crazy. "Good morning then."

Closing his eyes for a couple of minutes as he began to talk about Avaline and Misaki who were both probably outside. All of a sudden he heard a loud bump when he turned his head. Turning his head back towards the noise, he slowly opened his eyes,"The hell." He sat up quickly,"Junbae? Are you alright?" Well of course he isn't what kind of question was that? If he wasn't lazy he would've gotten up a lot quicker but, at least he popped up when he saw someone on the ground. Getting down on his knees, he checked his head for any blood.

"I have no idea what to do." He sniffed a little bit, trying to make sure he doesn't freak out himself and bump his head. "Someone get a towel or something." Yup, he clearly had no idea if he needed a towel for this particular situation, he was clueless on what to do next. "And some ice? I think." Sighing he turned Junbae over on his back, poking his forehead a couple of times to see if he was still alive or not, hopefully he was, it looked like he was still breathing so that was a good sign.

"I'll get her,"

Sae grinned and said, "Aha, thanks so much, my little Avaline~" She did a lazy sort of salute, though she did feel quite guilty for letting the girl do something she asked. It just... didn't make her feel right since she had asked previous things in the past that she also seemed to have obeyed, 'I... should probably stop asking her too much...' She thought with a frown.

"W-wait a minute! I didn't wet myself! I'm an adult! You're idea of an alarm just startled me and I spilled my glass! I-it's just water!"

"Yes, yes, whatever you say!" Sae laughed victoriously, as if she had won an argument, though there really was no argument to be won.

"It's too early.."

Immediately, Sae swung around to face Kano and said, "No time is too early to wake up in this house young man!" She was trying to be serious while saying it, since it was something she hardly got to say, but cracked a small smile at the end of her sentence because she sounded quite silly since she was no owner of the house.

'The actual owner of this house is really...' She thought, thinking of that adult who saved all the people she lived with while they were children, but then sighed, 'One day.'

"...Heeeh?...I'm fiiine..Hehe..Good morning~"

Sae grew a little more worried when Junbae did an odd smile, "Yep. Definitely fine. Definitely." She said with a serious expression. She was always the loose and weird one of the group, and she hardly changed, but if anything she didn't like even touched one her friends, she'd become much more protective and earnest.

"GOOD MORNING EVREYOOOONE!!~"

'That... seems way out of his character...' She thought, a face that said she wasn't being fooled.

"Where's Avaline and Misa-...." Suddenly, Junbae's head hit the table, causing Sae to jump from her seat. One, the noise scared the life out of her, as she was a little pale. Two, well... who else wouldn't freak out when their friend was acting out of hand then passing out on the table.

"I have no idea what to do." She heard Ichiro say.

"Well, we're definitely not going to leave him here." Sae confirmed.

"Someone get a towel or something. And some ice? I think."

A small chuckle came from Sae's mouth at that and responded, "You've clearly never taken care of someone with a fever then."

She grabbed one of Junbae's arms, putting it around her neck, but not moving from the kitchen, knowing she'd probably drop the poor guy on the way up the stairs. Therefore, she took a deep breath and shouted to the garden, putting both hands over Junbae's ears since her voice probably would be painful to hear in his state, "Little Avaline! Misaki! Junbae's got a fever! Could you help me bring him up the stairs?" She asked before slowly getting him off the chair and slowly working her way out of the kitchen.

This morning seemed oddly busier than the usual one's Kano was used to. Of course morning's in this house were often lively and interesting, but this morning was turned different after Junbae began acting rather cheery and loud as he sat at the kitchen table. At first Kano was pretty happy seeing the naturally calm Junbae acting a lot more energetic than he normally does, that was until the brown-haired boy face-planted the table in front of him mid-sentence. Kano had already made himself a plate of Avaline's pancakes and eggs and filled himself up a glass of coffee with extra cream and sugar when the impact of his friends forehead against the table nearly knocked over his glass. Right away Ichiro had rushed over to him while Kano remained where he was with a confused expression on his face. He wasn't really sure what just happened, to be honest.

"Someone get a towel or something. And some ice? I think." He heard Ichiro say as he checked Junbae over.

"You've clearly never taken care of someone with a fever then."

Kano rose from his seat after hearing what Sae had to say to Ichiro about Junbae having a fever. "Junbae's sick?!" He said, sounding both worried and surprised.

"Little Avaline! Misaki! Junbae's got a fever! Could you help me bring him up the stairs?" Sae called loudly after pulling Junbae's arm around her neck to try and stand him up. Before long, both girls had come in from the garden and Misaki assisted Sae in bringing the sickly boy up the stairs. Kano, however, remained downstairs with Ichiro.

He took a minute to go over the scene in his head that had just taken place before giving Ichiro a big smile and a thumbs up.

"I've never seen you move that fast, Ichi-kun! You get a gold star for your effort!" He giggled at himself before sitting back down to eat more of his breakfast. He didn't want it to get cold when he barely started eating.

After a little while Misaki returned downstairs, but walked right by her plate of food that still hadn't been touched. "I'm heading out for a bit, come if you want but I'd rather you didn't, I have some...business to attend to and I'll be back soon."

The blonde watched her curiously as she made her way to the front door. He stood up quickly, shoveling another fork full of eggs into his mouth and then taking a gulp of his coffee before giving a quick wave to Ichiro as he left to follow Misaki. By the time Kano reached the outside of the mansion he had to jog a little ways to catch up to her, since he spent a minute lacing up his shoes. Once he was beside her, he looked ahead with his normal little smile as he walked and tucked his fingers, save for his thumbs, into the front pockets of his jeans.

"So where are we going, Misaki?" He asked after a few moments of silence, tilting his head a little to look down at her. Before she could answer he gave her a mischievous grin. "Lemme guess, we're gunna meet up with your boyfriend and I'm gunna find out that he proposed to you, right?", he said jokingly with a chuckle before his expression turned somewhat serious and he shook his finger back and forth at her. "He'd better share. It wouldn't be fair if he got you all to himself!"

"You've clearly never taken care of someone with a fever then."

"You are clearly right about that." Sadly, that was the truth.

"Little Avaline! Misaki! Junbae's got a fever! Could you help me bring him up the stairs?"

"You didn't ask me so." Ichiro sighed and plopped back down on the couch,"Well, at least I got up." He wasn't going to lay there he did have a heart. "I've never seen you move that fast, Ichi-kun! You get a gold star for your effort!" Looking over at Kano, Ichiro,"Yeah, yeah." Shaking his head he looked away, he didn't need any gold star. Getting back to his lazy state, he hoped Junbae was okay but, he wasn't going up stairs to check and see.

"I'm heading out for a bit, come if you want but I'd rather you didn't, I have some...business to attend to and I'll be back soon." He heard Misaki say when she came downstairs.

He wondered what she was doing but, he shook his head. He really wasn't the one to get into other peoples business. Sighing he sat up and looked around. Getting up he walked outside to the backyard, sighing in relief,"This is the last time I am going to move, the last time."

Ichiro looked around outside and sat down on the grass,"It's decent enough." He laid down on his back and smiled. Looking up at the sky, he realized how blue it was, despite the clouds that were rolling by. He always wondered what it would be like to be a cloud. He didn't have to worry about getting up, or doing anything. Remembering what Sae had said.

"You've clearly never taken care of someone with a fever then."
Well, actually he couldn't he was the one that was always sick when he was little, and as he grew up. Plus, not having to use his hands, were the main reason he was home schooled. Sadly looking away from the sky and closing his eyes, it was hard for him to get around then, and that's probably the reason he doesn't do anything now. He doesn't want to do much of anything, if that would cause him to lose his hands.

"He must have a really high fever,"

"Hmm... you think?" Sae asked, crossing her arms to get comfortable as she looked back onto the sick on in the room, "Hopefully the recovery won't take too long..." She muttered, not liking it when one of her family members was absent, in any way.

"Sae, could you try to wake him up while I get the thermometer? I haven't had much luck with him, and you'll probably do a better job then me. We need to know how high his temperature is, his fever seems really bad and it would be much easier if he was awake,"

Sae was spaced out for a little while, since her mind was always drifting constantly before she finally responded, "Oh, yeah, I'll try, I guess." She shrugged, not exactly certain if she should wake him up, but decided to do what she was asked as she walked near the bed before Junbae bursted out of the bed with a large gasp, making Sae take a few steps back out of surprise.

"..mama..papa...Yanri.....Yanri... Come back... Oh?...morning. Eh...? When did i?--- Th-..that first dream...was....real?"

Sae stood quiet, figuring she wasn't noticed yet and just stared, 'What's going on here...?' She wanted to ask what was going on, but only closed her mouth after thinking, not knowing the approach she should take since she had never seen Junbae like that before, making her quite suspicious that something tragic happened in the dream he was having.

Again, while she was spacing out, still thinking she was unnoticed, she suddenly heard him shout, "S-SAE?"

"Y-Yes!?" Sae yelled a little suddenly out of the immediate rise in volume. She was a little freaked out of first since they both began to yell until she noticed that Junbae seemed shamed, or perhaps embarrassed, 'One of the two.' She thought before slowly calming down.

"Oh dear..."

Sae was planning on saying something, but instead, pointed to the bed and demanded, "Lay back down! Right now! Mommy's orders!" She said, grabbing a chair behind her for herself to sit down on since she was standing that whole time.

She then took a deep breath and said, "You... looked like you had quite a nightmare just then. Wanna get it out? If, it's not too much to take in, that is." Sae offered, knowing that talking things out didn't help all the time.

But before letting him continue, she went to close the door, but peered outside for a moment, noticing everyone was gone, murmuring to herself, "Strange... Avaline's getting the thermometer, I'm surprised that Ichiro has even a little energy to move.. Huh, where'd he go.... then where did Misaki and Kano go..?" But after thinking a little while, she decided to just shrug it off. But she wasn't done there, "Little Avaline! If you could, find that little lazy boy for me please?" She referred to Ichiro, since she usually liked to know where everyone was.

"Anyways..." Sae said, sitting back into her chair, "The offer to talk it off still stands." She grinned, hoping to lighten the mood a little.

Avaline heard Sae call from the other room. She opened the medicine cabinet and grabbed the thermometer. She walked back into Junbae's room and handed the thermometer to Sae. "I'll go find Ichiro," Avaline noticed that Junbae was awake. "Thanks for waking him up," She whispered before leaving the room. Avaline walked down the stairs and looked around. The house was oddly quiet. She looked around. No one seemed to be inside. So she walked outside, figuring that maybe somebody was out in the garden. She doubted that she would find anyone though.

Avaline walked out into the backyard. She didn't see any sign of Misaki or Kano, but she eventually found Ichiro in the grass. She looked around. "Oh, there you are. Sae asked me to find you," She greeted him. She looked around. "Do you know where Misaki and Kano went?" Avaline asked. She didn't know if Ichiro would know any more than she did, but it was worth a try. After all, he layed around a lot and he might have seen or heard something.

Ichiro loved sitting her and enjoying the morning air, it was quite breezy but, he didn't let that bother him. He was suddenly drifting off to sleep, he never actually slept outside before but, the weather was quite nice and gentle so he could help it. As long as it didn't rain he didn't care what outside was like, he actually felt pretty safe than he did when he first came here. He was frightened at first but, he suddenly felt right at home.

"Oh, there you are. Sae asked me to find you," Almost jumping up and hitting at the air, he stayed where he was at and looked up at the quiet girl Avaline.

"Ah, hello Avaline. You scared me." Taking a deep breath, he smiled a little,"Do you know where Misaki and Kano went?" Ichiro thought about the question that was asked,"Um, yeah. Misaki said that she had some 'business' to take care of and Kano went with her. At least I think he did." Nodding he continued,"Yeah but, where.. I have no clue."

Closing his eyes for a minutes or two he opened them back up,"Anyways.. Why did Sae want you to find me? Is Junbae doing okay?" His mouth had started to hurt so that was the last time he'd be talking in the next couple of minutes.

"I'll go find Ichiro, thanks for waking him up,"

Sae heard Avaline say as she smiled back and answered, "Thanks a lot. Honestly, I probably owe you a lot after asking you of so much! Remind me of that, kay? And don't worry! It was no problem since he... well... kind of woke himself up." She laughed a little before waving a little as she left the room to find the other member of her, and their, family.

"Ah..y-yes Ma'am.."

The orange haired girl turned around at the sound of Junbae's voice and grinned a little when she noticed he laid back down, which led her to explaining her reason to asking him to do such an action, "It'd be bad to have you even get up while having a fever. You'll just get even more tired." She said, as if she had knowledge of her own.

"ah...it..was a dream. About when my parent's and sister where alive.."

After hearing those words, Sae's little smile seemed to have faded slightly into a sort of frown. She knew what happened to all six of the people who lived under that roof of the house near the ocean. After the accidents seven years ago, just about all of them lost their family, or, at least, someone very important to them. Talking about it wasn't always the best idea. Sae only thought that what her friend had was a regular nightmare, maybe lightning storms, or being in complete darkness, but what was worst than both of those was remembering little fragments of the past.

"Oh.... I see then. Well, say no more if that's the case." She took a deep breath before replacing her frown with that usual smile, "Instead, let's just chat about something else, right? I was thinking that, well, once everyone came home, we could try going-"

"Sae..im sorry for troubling you like this.."

"Hmm?" Sae asked, getting cut off before she could finish, which she didn't really mind since any family trips could wait until later. For a moment, she had a bit of a confused face, not really understanding what he was trying to say until she finally realized and gave out a genuine laugh, "Oh honestly, you're a funny person. Do you really think that you're causing trouble?" That was all she could say before her laughter took over.

A small moment later, she tousled Junbae's hair and said, "No trouble at all! Well, I can admit you can sometimes be a little bit of a trouble maker," Sae teased, "But don't worry. Besides, you've got to get over that fever of yours quick, or you'll leave us alllllllll alone. And you know, that's not very good, sir! Not very good at all!" She shook her head, hardly understanding what she was now saying since she was always a little odd, honestly.

"Haha..you saw me crying, didn't you? ...sorry, im..very sorry."

"Yeah, I did." Sae said, becoming slightly serious again, "But... you had a good reason, so you don't have to apologize..." She said, seeming to grow quieter by each word, though not on purpose because she got lost in her own thought again, but it was a little darker than usual since she was recalling her family again.

"The house seems..a bit quiet? Where is everyone? i remember that Misaki was missing when i passed out..is she alright?.."

"H-Huh?" Sae lifted her head almost immediately, getting out of her daze, "Oh, yeah. She said she was going... outside for a little bit? Oh, and Kano went with her also. Little Avaline is going to find Little Ichiro, and then there's you and me!" She listed out where everyone was, "Don't worry, Misaki is a tough girl. Plus, she's got Kano with her! What could possibly go wrong?" She shrugged, trying to imagine any situation the two couldn't handle, but found none so her worries quickly vanished.

"The same goes for yours." She said, not realizing she was thinking to herself, "Stress won't help with your recovery, I can guarantee you that. So... calm down, relax, and sleep. Oh, and before I forget, mind if I take your temperature, just to know what we're dealing with? Ah, and there's medicine you're going to have to take... That... probably won't taste very good..." She shivered at the thought of medicine, never really liking the bitter taste it gave off.

Misaki already knew struggling against Kano was useless, even though she was pretty strong Kano was obviously stronger then her. Looking up at Kano Misaki shook her head not saying anything. She was afraid that if she told Kano the others would find out and leave her by herself, feeling disgusted with her and her actions.

"Misaki-chan, please explain to me what you're going to do here. If this place is dangerous then you shouldn't be here either. Did you get yourself into something bad?"

Looking down Misaki was trying to figure a way to face Kano with the situation. "I can't say much right now, I told you already that I'd explain it to you when I get home but right now I have to go I have someone waiting for me and it's best if I don't keep him waiting," Misaki said keeping her head down.

"Don't get me wrong I don't want to do this but I have to, I have no choice, now let me go if I keep Daichi waiting he's gonna get suspicious and send people out here," Misaki said trying to pull herself out of Kano's grip. "Kano let me go."

Avaline thought about Ichiro's question for a second.
"I think Sae just wanted to know if you've seen Misaki and Kano, or to find out if your actually here, I guess," She mumbled. She shrugged.
"Junbae just woke up, I think he's doing better, but he'll need a lot of medicine to lower his fever and get him back up on his feet again. He'll be in bed for awhile," Avaline explained. She gave a small wave and walked back inside. She started up the stairs. She then felt something slip under her feet. She tumbled down the stairs. She landed on the bottom step and picked up what she had slipped on. It was Sae's book that she had been writing in that morning.
"Ow!" She yelped. She got back up and rubbed her back. She put the book back.
"That hurt," She mumbled. Avaline went upstairs to tell Sae about Misaki and Kano.
She opened the door to Junbae's room.
"Ichiro's outside in the backyard. He said he saw Misaki leave, then Kano followed her," Avaline quietly explained.
She looked over at Junbae.
"How are you doing?" She asked.

"I think Sae just wanted to know if you've seen Misaki and Kano, or to find out if your actually here, I guess,"

He nodded, he almost didn't catch what she said but, he did and he smiled. Since his mouth had started hurting he had waited for a little while before he started talking again."Oh, okay." His eyes had started to hurt looking back at Avaline and closed his eyes for a little before opening them again.

"Junbae just woke up, I think he's doing better, but he'll need a lot of medicine to lower his fever and get him back up on his feet again. He'll be in bed for awhile,"

Nodding at the good news,"That's good, as long as he gets better." Nodding again as she waved goodbye, he looked back up at the moving clouds. He couldn't help but, wonder what else was up there than a sky, clouds, and somewhat pollution. Shaking that thought out of his head as he turned on his stomach, hearing a yelp from inside but, he thought nothing of it and turned back around on his back.

"Yeah..i hope they'll be back soon..."

"It may be a little while..." Sae said, trying to remember what Misaki and Kano had to do, though nothing really came into mind as she just said, "Yeah, it may be a little while until they come back, but there should be nothing to worry about!" That's what she hoped.

"..Oh..yeah. I feel my fevers gone down a little, but i guess making sure is a good idea..i wouldn't want to have another crazy episode...and the taste shouldn't be a problem since i kinda have a cold, too."

Sae sighed with relief after hearing that and said, "Well, there's something to be glad about. And of course it is. Better be sure than sorry, isn't that right?" She asked, experiencing it first handed before and regretting bad choices which was why she was so cautious this time. Sae then turned around and got off the chair to get a the thermometer and medicine, which she held carefully since it was open.

"Ah..uh-.. um.....Sae!..Thanks, for..taking care of me!.."

"You don't have to thank me!" Sae grinned, as always, "It'd really suck to have someone missing from our family, especially when they would have a fever... If anyone were to leave you there, they'd be a horrible person. But I'm not saying that I only took care of you to be a good person! W-Well... that is partially it, b-but that's not what I mean!" Sae began to get her words scrambled, only noticing that she was beginning to make it worse, "L-Let me restart that... Ehem.... What I am trying to say it-"

She was cut off as she was pulled in for the hug, nearly spilling the medicine, which she hardly noticed from the embarrassment, as shown when her face grew slightly red. She, like almost everyone, was hugged by many people before; her parents, family, etc. But, well, not every hug was the same in her opinion, and, of course, her reaction to it would obviously be different.

"...Also..thanks for listening..."

"A-ah, Y-Yeah! No problem! M-My pleasure!" She stuttered, not really used to the odd feeling she got. Though, when she was released, she felt a little more calm as she said, "Y...Yeah, your welcome. I'd be happy to listen to anything anyways! So when you need that, feel free to ask, kay?" She asked with a smile.

"Okay, Mommy...take my temperature.."

Sae snapped out of her daze as she quickly nodded and grabbed the thermometer, taking his temperature before looking at the numbers and murmuring without knowing, "38.7 Β°C......" She let out a small anxious sigh and saying, "This may take a day for you to get over." She frowned while looking at Junbae, "This kinda sucks..." She grumbled.

"Ichiro's outside in the backyard. He said he saw Misaki leave, then Kano followed her,"

She heard Avaline say as she smiled and said, "Thanks! Really, I owe you a lot, so if you need help ask me, kay? I need to repay my debt to you! And that lazy little boy isn't going to come up to visit his friend who has a fever? Really?" She asked, twitching a little as she said, "I'll be right back..."

With those words, she walked outside and closed the door quietly and gently, but once it shut, she yelled, "Ichiro! Get up here! You can't just leave your friend in his room who's sick while you lay around in peace! At least ask how he's doing! And if you don't come up in three minutes then Mommy's going to come down stairs and get you herself!"

Avaline watched as Sae went looking for Ichiro. She stood in the room, silent before she gave a small wave to Junbae.
"hope you feel better," She whispered. She then exited his room and went to her own. She rummaged around in her drawer before she found her sketchpad. Avaline then went back into the hallway and started down the stairs while Sae yelled at Ichiro from outside Junbae's room. Avaline then gently opened the front door and went outside.

Avaline walked for awhile before finding a good place to draw and think. She sat down near an isolated river. It was blocked by trees, so no one could really see her, and that made her feel better. She started to draw the river, but then scraped that picture. She then remembered one of the unfinished pages in her book. She cringed. "You have to look at it," She commanded herself. She slowly opened up to the page. It was an unfinished portrait of her family based off a picture of them. She just stared at the picture. There was also a few signatures on the page from her family to encourage her to do a great job. The original picture was still there. As much as she wanted to throw it into the river, she also wanted to keep it. She sighed and put her sketch book away.

The sounds of the river helped calm her a bit, but not much. She started to hum to a song she remembered from when she was younger. She closed her eyes and let herself think about the memory.

A younger version of Avaline sat the breakfast table, eating cereal. She was silent as usual, after all, this was the time in her life when she went mute. Her sister turned on the radio. She started to hum along with the song. Avaline never recalled hearing it, but she knew all the words for some reason. She started to whisper the song. Her voice was scratchy, but it started to clear out. She started to sing louder. Her sister turned around in surprise and hugged her.
"Glad you're back," Avaline smiled and hugged her back.


Suddenly, another memory filled Avaline's mind, and it wasn't a good one.

There were all at home, just hanging out. Avaline was drawing the sketch of her family, her brother was playing his guitar, her sister was helping her mother make dinner, and her father was sitting on the couch. They could all hear yelling and screaming from outside. Her sister looked outside, expecting to see her neighbors playing, but inside, she saw the water. "HOLY-" She cried. Everyone looked outside. Avaline froze.
"We need to get upstairs!" Avaline shook her head and looked around. She pulled down the ladder to the attic. She watched as her family grabbed their stuff. Avaline just grabbed her sketch pad and ran upstairs. She watched as her family struggled to find things. She didn't want to say anything, but the water was almost in their house. Suddenly, Avaline saw the water build up outside the door. HEr family froze. Avaline wiped her face. 'No, NO!" Her family was suddenly swept away by the water. She closed the hatch and curled up. "no," She whispered.


Avaline started to sob. She hugged her knees and just let all the tears that had built up over time out. She moved away from the river, still crying. She didn't want to be anywhere near water. She looked around for a place to just sit in private. She couldn't find any place. She just sat on the sidewalk and cried.

Breathing in the outside air,"I wonder why I haven't gone outside a bit more often." He thought. Nothing could ruin this moment of relaxation. He enjoyed it deeply and doesn't want to leave the spot he was in. Feeling a bit sleepy, he began to close his eyes and as he began to drift off, his little relaxation was ruined by a certain someone. He suddenly realized that he had fooled himself into thinking that he was going to get to be lazy at the moment.

"Ichiro! Get up here! You can't just leave your friend in his room who's sick while you lay around in peace! At least ask how he's doing! And if you don't come up in three minutes then Mommy's going to come down stairs and get you herself!" Nearly bumping his head as his name was being shouted towards him. He then started sighing at the words being heard. "Why do I get yelled at the most." Not asking it but, just literally saying it. It seemed like it was impossible for him to be lazy with out a single worry. But, nope. Getting yelled at by a certain someone in the house frightened him though, he would never admit to it.

He actually had three minutes. So, he took that as a literal threat and looked up at the sky for two minutes before taking his time getting up and walking inside. Man, and he was going to smoke too. Well, whenever he had gathered up the energy to take it out his pocket and light it up. Running his hands through his hair lazily, he took his time in walking towards and up the stairs and stopped in front of Sae.

"I really don't have the energy for this." Mumbling that as he peeped his head through the door. Not wanting to walk in,"Hey Junbae. How's it going?" Mumbling once again, he decided that he'd sit on the floor besides the bed. Looking up at Junbae he nodded, and smiled a lazy smile. This actually reminded him of his younger self; how he always would either be sick for a long time or lay in bed too afraid to lift the covers off his bed. This thought made him a little sad and so he jerked his head down, trying to let that memory pass. Not wanting anyone to know of his life when he was a child.

"Why do I get yelled at the most."

"I heard that..." Sae sighed before heading downstairs, already having some plans for the day. She did plan on coming back to the house obviously, but she was thinking she may take longer than thought, "You only get yelled at because you lack far too much energy... honestly, I'm thinking of buying an energy drink for you one day...."

"I really don't have the energy for this."

"There's my point!" Sae said after turning around to point at him. But a moment later, she turned back and headed for the door, announcing, "I'll be back! Ah," Sae paused, "Can someone find Little Avaline? I... don't need her or anything... but I'd hate to have someone alone, kay?" She grinned before finally going out of the house with a small wave of her hand as the door closed behind her.

For a mere moment, Sae didn't move from where she was, right outside the house door before then trying to remember where she was going to go, 'Was it... the beach? The market? The store?' She thought to herself one by one before finally figuring it out, "Right! It was the graveyard-"

Immediately, she cut herself off. Just thinking about the graveyard reminded her of seven years before. In some way, it made her chest hurt as she hid it behind a sigh and then a false, yet realistic looking smile, "I guess that means I'm going to have to go buy some flowers then huh...." She murmured to herself before checking her pockets and finding some money; though it wasn't that much, it was at least some to get her a bundle of sunflowers.

~~~

"You're short." The cashier woman said, who ran a small shop of flowers near the house she and the other five lived.

"Short...?" Sae asked, becoming more pale by the second. Awkward situations were one of the things she absolutely hated as seen when her facial expression would slowly change per word said by the other person.

The cashier woman obviously saw this, as could anyone else since Sae was terrible at hiding things like that at most times, and felt guilt which is why the woman said anxiously, "W-Well.... it's not very far off from the actual amount, so just take it, alright?" She asked, handing the bundle back.

[color=fuchsia]"S-Sorry for being so much trouble!"
She accidentally shouted, mostly because she felt guilty for not paying full value. As if she had commit a theft, Sae ran off as quick as possible, in a certain direction with her eyes set on a certain place.

This place she was visiting was actually quite a bit further from the flower shop. Around a whole mile and a half, causing her to take a long while to run there. But it was well worth all the breath and hurry as she ended up at the graveyard. She didn't walk in at first, just standing outside the grey little world.

After a long debate, she finally went inside. She didn't have to look around or try and find the right names or the right stone. She knew right where it was. Why? Because she was dedicated, which made her visit at the very least, once a week. After a little walking, she kneeled down near one of the graves.

There was no need for three stones, just one, for the whole Kang family but the oldest sister. Sae laid down the sunflowers gently on the ground next to the stone with carvings and said with a smile, "Nice weather, right, Mom, Dad, Hani?"

Avaline hit herself on the head.
"Get it together!" She muttered. She closed her eyes and took a deep breath and slowly stood up.
"IT's alright," She told herself. Avaline started to walk. She didn't know where she was going, but she needed to clear her head and calm down. She sighed and kept walking. She remembered the small memorial to everyone who died in the flood. It was a little ways away, but she could still reach it soon enough. Avaline didn't know what direction she should go, but took a wild guess. She kept walking and walking, just trying to get the memory out of her mind. Part of her told herself that she could have saved them, or do something more. Another part said that it wasn't her fault at all. She couldn't tell which one was right. She hung her head low and kept walking.

When Avaline finally looked up, she realized she had been walking for awhile, and she had no idea where she was. She looked around nervously. Not a lot of people were around. She decided to keep walking, maybe she could see a landmark that would tell her where she was. She noticed a small cafe. She remembered that it was about an hour away from her old house. The memorial had to be somewhere around there. Avaline took a few turns before she found the memorial. Some many names were written on the piece of rock. She traced her sister's, brother's, mother's and father's names with her finger. She hung her head and opened her bag and pulled out the last memories of them. Her brother's baseball, her sister's headphones and a water damaged wedding photo. She sat down next to the memorial. So many people had died, and she had lived. It wasn't fair to anyone. Why should of she survived, not her family. She stood up and looked around. She still had no idea where she was.

Avaline sighed as she walked along. She would probably find her way eventually. She kept walking, but she wasn't getting anywhere near where she wanted to be. She looked around for a pay phone. She pulled out some money from her purse and put it in. She dialed the number for the home phone in the house. She waited for someone to pick up. She waited a few rings before someone picked up.
"Hello?" She asked.

Leaning her head against the wall of Kano's work place Misaki decided she didn't want to get Kano all worked up because of the state she was in so she decided to leave and walk around for a bit.

Letting out a long sigh she decided to go the ocean. It wasn't a long walk nor was it a short one, but the closer Misaki got to the ocean the more relaxed she felt. It was cool outside not so hot, and there was a slight breeze.

After walking for about twenty minutes Misaki walked along to the start of the beach. Taking of her shoes she walked on the warm sand while breathing in the salty sea air. "What am I gonna do now," Misaki said as she slumped herself down a few feet from where the water was.

Laying herself down she starred at the sky listening to the sounds of the ocean. After a couple of minutes she fell asleep.

Avaline trudged along the sidewalk, kicking up dust. No one had picked up the phone and she was stuck walking home. Her feet ached badly. She finally looked up from her turtle position to see that she was in a pretty bad neighborhood. She remembered that when she was little, her parents never even drove through the area.

Suddenly, a loud shot rang out. A bullet fell right at her feet. She screamed and ducked behind a car as others took cover. A hail of bullets came crashing down. Avaline clutched a locket around her neck and hugged her knees. She took deep breaths. Avaline spied a small child running from the shooters. She couldn't just let the kid run, so she ran over to him and picked him up. Avaline placed him somewhat safely behind the car. She suddenly felt a growing pain in her side.

Avaline looked down in horror as two more bullets entered her left side. She crawled behind the car, breathing heavily. There was a loud ringing in her ears. "It's going to be fine," Avalime whispered to herself. She closed her eyes and waited for them to leave. She slipped into a deep slumber, her side bleeding all over.

Avaline was in a large foyer. She could instantly tell where she was. She was in her aunt's house while her parents were looking for houses. Her sister was playing a card game with her brother and her aunt was baking. Avaline was only about 3, and she shyly approached her siblings. "Can I play?" She asked, hope in her voice. "Sorry, it's only for two people," Her brother said. Avaline nodded, hurt by the rejection. She sat down on a plump couch. Her aunt's house was we're she did really cast herself out from the world, and it was a terrible memory, or at least to her it was.
