|| Role ||


Appearance


Image

|| Hair Color ||
Light brownish orange(Was originally dark brownish orange but he goes outside too
much without wearing hats; complains no hats fit him,
which is true because his head is slightly on the big side)
|| Eye Color ||
Brown
|| Skin Tone ||
Light Tan but was originally fair like his sister's. "I go outside sometimes okay?"

|| Height ||
5'10"
|| Physical Description ||
At first glance Taeku looks like a kid from private school from the way he dresses and his build. He likes to wear preppy clothes(prefers to wear slacks, dress shirt, tie, and sneakers) or anything that makes him look mature yet young at the same time; his outfits often match his sister's due to her shopping for him most of the time. His glasses make him look older and more mature than he really is. When combined with his long and wavy hair that often gets in his eyes and his slim body, he looks weak. People often mistake him for a bookworm or nerd, and that is what he wants.

Underneath his weak and silent guise he is quite muscular from constant training since he was young. If you get a chance to see underneath his long hair and glasses, you'll find he is in fact quite handsome, thanks to being born from a Caucasian mother and Asian father. He inherited his deep brown eyed gaze from his father, orangish brown hair from his mother and fine features from both his parents.

Unlike his sister who likes to wear flashy clothes, he does not want to be noticed, because often times it is more trouble than it is worth. He has had many girls check him out and even follow him when going to the pool, one of the few times he is in public without his glasses, preppy clothes, and his hair down.

When he is in gamer yakuza mode, he will tie up his hair, switch out his glasses for contacts, and possibly go shirtless depending on the situation and setting.

Mentality


|| Personality ||
Taeku is socially awkward: he is nervous to talk to complete strangers and be in the middle of a large crowd; he prefers to be surrounded by close friends or a group of three people or less. He has the way he was raised to blame: his parents are rich and sent him to private school throughout elementary school; they realized too late that their son and daughter were not experiencing things kids their age should experience. Thus the pair was sent to public school where they struggled to fit in and make friends. At that point it was too late for him to escape his social anxiety, and him being an introvert didn't help. Most of the time during conversations you'll notice him being silent: he may not be saying anything, but for sure he's listening.

To add to his awkwardness, his parents weren't around to talk to most of the time, so he didn't know how to express his emotions and thoughts. Taeku sounds monotone 99.999% of the time and looks expressionless. The feelings he is good at expressing on his face are: annoyance, anger, and amusement(usually at the suffering or discomfort of people he doesn't like and his sister.) When he feels extremely happy or sad, he just stares at the ground to hide his face under his hair. Occasionally Taeku will let his guard down and let a smile or grin slip through; it's like he is trying hide the fact he's actually enjoying himself. From the way he acts around people, its like he's a grumpy grandfather. He doesn't talk much but when he does it's usually to make some sarcastic remark. He is more comfortable when talking to his friends but will only do so normally when he has the energy to or feels like it. If he is mean to you or teases you, it either means he hates your guts or really adores you. He's a tsundere.

Something special happens when the sun goes down and/or he consumes too much sugar or caffeine: Taeku goes into a mix of a wild party animal and a yakuza. He becomes incredibly charismatic and wild, and whatever filter he has when he's in his sleepy emotionless state goes away and whatever goes. He will also swear as much as his sister and become very confrontive and rude. He basically becomes his sister personality wise.

The secret side of him is that he is a very sentimental person and enjoys experiencing nature. Japan may be filled with all forms of entertainment, but Taeku's true enjoyment lies in the beautiful setting. He would often listen to his music and enjoy looking at the sights.

Taeku likes to play with the kids in the neighborhood: games like tag, soccer, hide and go seek, and badminton. This is because he didn't have the chance to play with other kids his age when he was young due to his sheltered upbringing. He shows his more childish and innocent side when playing these games, and often will provoke his sister in joining in. She usually participates because she too missed out on that aspect of her childhood.

History



|| Biography ||
Taeku was bullied throughout high school.At first he didn't mind them or fight back because his father always taught him that Taekwondo was not only disciplining the body but also the spirit; Taeku figured that if he fought back against the bullies using strength would mean he was weak in spirit.

Till one day he snapped, the bullies had gone too far. Taeku was walking to class with a girl he liked since middle school, then the bullies walked by and bumped into the girl and knocked her onto the floor. Taeku quickly tried to help her up but the four of them pushed him back all at once against the wall, hitting his head against the glass window and breaking it, causing a shard to cut into his forehead. The girl stared in horror as the biggest bully held her back, she had a terrible phobia of blood due to her mother dying in a freak car accident with her in the back seat when she was young, and there was so much blood everywhere. The bullies left Taeku slumped up against the wall while they pressured the girl to go hang out with them after school, and touched her in inappropriate places.

Feeling light headed and enraged, Taeku immediately stood up and in a flash he threw a sidekick right up the first bully's chin causing him to bite his tongue off and before the wounded thug could clutch his mouth in pain his head was pushed down and kneed in the face, breaking his nose. The moment the leg that kneed
touched the ground, he unleashed a relentless fury of kicks and hand strikes to the other bullies, even slamming one's face into a glass window. In short, it was a bloody mess. At this point many students were gathered around the scene that looked like it came straight out of a gory movie, blood everywhere; the girl whom he tried to protect stared blankly at him with tears running down her eyes. He tried to help her up but she pushed him away and screamed that she never wanted to see his bloody face again. Not exactly good with people, Taeku could only look longingly at the girl as her friends helped her sobbing figure through the crow of students and teachers.

Long story short, the incident was during the last month of school, and Taeku was suspended for a few weeks as investigations and legal processes took place. His father was sympathetic but his mother was enraged that her son was so violent despite him never showing signs of any desire to harm even a bug. She blamed the father for teaching Taeku such dangerous things and polluting his mind. Back at school almost everyone was a bit fearful of Taeku and tried their best to avoid his gaze, even his friends were a little wary towards him at first. The whole town, no, the whole country knew of the incident, his life was never the same. So when his friends decided to move to Japan, his mother delightedly agreed to pay all of his living expenses there(His family is quite rich, his mother being the lead researcher of a multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical company.) Due to stress because of his mother wanting him to follow her footsteps to be a pharmacist, he accepted going if it meant he could be something else other than a pharmacist.

He met his friends one day when he randomly sat down at a table for lunch. At first he thought the group was slightly annoying but still came back to sit there, simply eating his food silently and listening to their conversations, and eventually he joined in. The rest is history.

So begins...

The plane had just landed after a bit of a rough flight, there was some slight turbulence on the way, but nothing of too much concern. For Chiyo however, it was a long terrifying flight. By the time they landed she looked as if she had witnessed the depths of Hell itself.

" I'm never flying again."

As everyone unboarded the plane and gathered their luggage, they eventually found their way to their new home. Now the group of newly graduates stand together in front of their rather large home, but it wouldn't be so large once everyone got settled in. The front of the home was rather plain, simple black metal leading to the entrance of the house. It was two stories and there were originally 6 rooms, but two rooms had to manage as two extra bedrooms, originally they were meant as office space. The home itself was rather plain inside, a medium sized kitchen and a big enough living room for the eight of them.

It was the start of their new lives and the starting point for what they wanted to do with their future, it was unknown what calamities they would face and how long they would all be able to stay in this home together. The idea of even living together was a simple wish that a small but hopeful girl had made and here they are making it come true. Although Chiyo seemed like it wasn't simply an offer that they didn't have to take, she wanted this with all her heart.

She would NEVER admit this, but today may be the greatest day of her life.

"Pf, that plane ride was a breeze. I'm glad we all finally made it here, it's hard to believe we will all be living here. Hopefully it won't get TOO hectic."

Chiyo observed the property, a look of disappointment appeared.
" Rather plain isn't it? We will just have to touch it up then." taking a few steps ahead she turned to the group, scanning over all of them.

Her cheeks reddened and hesitantly she spoke up towards the group.

"T-thank you, it means a lot to have everyone together still. I hope we all can make a great future for ourselves. N-NOW! One of you boys carry my luggage in. There is no way I can carry all that up the stairs! I have a few suits cases and the red one has fragile merchandise, so be careful with it!"
In fact the red case held all her hobbies that she was ashamed of, her figures from her favorite games and all her geeky merchandise.
" I call a two story room! There are 4 rooms up there and 4 on the bottom. So take your picks, so which one of you string beans boys are going to help bring my luggage up?"

She smiled innocently toward the boys, a burst a fresh energy seeming to enter her. Jet lag obviously no longer was in affect, now she was pumped and ready to get started.
Finally, we made it.

Robin had never flown before, so his body was never accustomed to the sensation of the powerful inertia. Throughout the lift-off and landing phases, he felt close to having to reach for the pouch on the seat in front of him. Thankfully, he found a work-around by twisting the overhead “air conditioner” knob (he knew it wasn’t actually an air conditioner, but it served a similar purpose) directly in front of his face, so he had a constant stream of fresh air to help him forget the upset stomach. When he was allowed to have electronics on, he had his laptop open, where he was polishing up a simple fighting game with two characters. He hoped the others would get a chance to test it for bugs and imbalances once they all landed and settled in.

Once they had landed, Robin’s legs were shaking. The air stream helped prevent him from losing the airplane lunch, but the shaking legs had him worried. He felt relieved when the shaking stopped after he managed to stand up and pick up his carry-on luggage. It wasn’t until he was waiting for the two large travel cases that carried his PC, accessories, and actual necessities that he felt as good as new. He had heard stories of jet lag from hell, but he didn’t feel any effects of it. Maybe it was because he lacked the context of what it actually feels like. He did sleep aboard the plane when he wasn’t coding, and it was pretty much daytime right now. From his perspective, jet lag couldn’t have happened.

The house, from an exterior standpoint, was very plain. Robin kinda liked it; not the metal itself. He personally found it a bit too plain. The reason he liked it was that it didn’t really appeal to anyone’s interests. It helped cement the idea that this was everyone’s place.

The tall boy pulled both large cases into the house with surprising strength after Chiyo entered to check out the interior. He was just about to unpack a few things when the small woman chimed up and requested someone to bring in her luggage. “Sure,” Robin replied with an energy influenced by Chiyo, before he headed out the door to pick up her luggage. “Alright,” he muttered to himself as he looked over the pile of cases that sat outside, “Red one’s fragile, rest are not. Easy enough.”

Robin carefully picked up the red case, and not-as-carefully picked up a second and third suitcase with his other hand. He had long fingers, and he subconsciously wanted to show off- even if he didn’t want to. In his mind, he wanted to get the luggage inside quickly and efficiently.

Taeku was struggling under the samurai bald cap: he had a terrible itch and was not able to satisfy the need to scratch it under the watchful eyes of his sister. He had lost TDG before they left for the airport and was suffering the punishment of wearing the bald cap; he saw his dignity slowly crash into the pipe as he missed a beat and his flappy bird went beak first into its doom. The gazes of the people on the airport and plane were bad enough, but when his friends saw him in the cap they all burst out laughing. He will remember this humiliation, and he will not forgive the one who caused it: Arisu.

She was looking at him with a smug look when he glared at her. They were traveling light because all of their belongings and room furniture was shipped by boat ahead of time a few weeks ago. Mister Park who was a manager of the Japan branch of his mom’s pharmaceutical company did them a big favor and moved all their stuff into the house. Taeku wonders if he’s inside the house right now, but then again Mr. Park is a busy man. Everyone seems excited, and he’d be lying if he said he wasn’t, but he didn’t show it: his face was in a perpetual glare as long as the bald cap itch was still bothering him.

Robin had offered to help Chiyo with her luggage despite having his own to worry about; Taeku would’ve done it since he was only carrying a backpack with his travel necessities and electronics, but he hesitated since it was Chiyo… Since everyone was crowding around the door, Taeku snuck around the back and hopped the wall into the back yard to enter through the side door: he didn’t want to be too close to Chiyo, and he wanted to get the bald cap off asap.
Image
Taeku unlocked the glass door and slipped in, flicking on the lights while he was at it. The house was filled with boxes with names of all his friends who had trusted him and his sis to ship their belongings to Japan. He scouted the top floor with his bald cap in one hand, scratching and ruffling his hair with the other. Something made him jump a little and sprint immediately towards it. Dr. Pepsi, his giant teddy bear, was sitting in plain sight; Taeku quickly picked a random door and dove into it with Dr. Pepsi in his arms.

While laying on the cool floor of the bedroom, Taeku held Dr. Pepsi tighter and closed his eyes, embracing the soft fur of the teddy bear. The chatter of his friends could be heard on the first floor. Man they’re loud…

“Well Dr. Pepsi, we’re finally here.”

Satoshi sighed and took one of Chyo's suitcases.
"Chyo-chan, I hope you'll bring up at least some of your own luggage." He spoke before his eyes widened at the sight of Robin carrying most of the stuff. His strength sure was as impressive as his programming skills.

So, this was it... All the eight of them have moved into а new home, starting a new life as adults. Everyone were about to start something. College? Job? Something else? Each of them had their own plans.

Satoshi almost dropped the suitcase when his phone started ringing. While still carrying the luggage and going upstairs, he took it out of his pocket and looked at the screen.

"Dad is calling..." he thought and declined the call. "He can wait."

"Hey, Robin! Need some help?" Satoshi called.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

The plane ride over here was difficult and terrifying for Nori even if his face didn't show it. He wore his headphones the whole ride blocking out the noise of the engine and every time there was a bump he would grip onto the arm of his chair for dear life. He secretly hoped no one saw him do it even though he really didn't mind, everyone is scared of something, no? During half the plane ride he was doing fine but came the turbulence and that just messed with his stomach, he loved roller coasters but this was stronger than any vibrations from a rollercoaster and it made him sick to his stomach. Nori got up a few times to throw up in the bathroom but he gave time between trips so no one could tell he was not feeling well.

When the plane touched ground and the passengers were exiting, Nori was the second out of the plane after Chiyo who seemed to be happy to get out of there then again he didn't blame her because he was glad he was out too. As the group got to the house Nori examined the outside, it was tall and not bad looking, a little dull though. This place needs a fresh coat of paint. . . maybe Lavender? Or a soft red? Nori thought to himself as he nodded in response at the comment Chiyo made about the house being dull. With his guitar strapped around his back and luggage in hand Nori made his way inside and took one of the downstairs bedroom, one at the end of the hall. After setting his things down he walked back out, hands in pockets and walked up to Manaka, Arisu and Nobuko. He spoke and his voice was gentle like always " Any of you need help bringing in their things?"

Taeku sprung up immediately as he heard his friends come up the stairs, as if the sounds reminded him of something important. He got up and ran out his room, rushed passed the friends who were going up the stairs, slipped into the kitchen and swung both the fridge and freezer doors open. He let out a sigh of relief: there was food and ingredients in there.
Image
After a brief moment of assessing what he had to work with, Taeku washed his hands and tied up his hair to prepare refreshments for his travel weary friends. He picked out a handful of apples, prepared 8 glasses of citrus water that came in a bottle, peeled and cored all the apples, diced them up into tiny bits, and placed them into the refreshing cold glasses of the beverage. To finish it off he added one or two mint leaves, some crushed ice from the fridge, and a small, long, and slender spoon to each glass. After carrying 4 glasses at a time to the table where they were clearly noticeable, Taeku returned to the kitchen to clean up and leave a chunk of beef out to thaw for later. Finished with all these tasks, he chugged down his own glass, washed it in the sink and sprinted back up the stairs not hesitating for a bit to throw a playful flying side kick at his sister, which she countered and slammed him into the ground. Hard.

Dazed and tired from jet lag (he watched movies most of the time on the plane and only slept for a few hours), Taeku plopped down on top of his gigantic teddy bear and took a nap until someone decides to wake him up. Whoever that rudeass person is.

**Note** Sorry about the double post, I felt bad for not doing anything to help with the move in >_<

Chiyo gave a pleased smile to both Robin and Satoshi " Thank you both, if you could just put it up stairs in the Imagehall that would be perfect!" after she had just thanked them Robin caught her attention, he did treat the fragile suitcase with care, but she was fairly surprised how he was able to handle so much luggage, perhaps he wasn't a string bean. " Just because I said to take care of one, doesn't mean you can treat the others without care. Both of you don't go snooping in my stuff either! I don't want to find out all my undergarments were raided." she used a half serious half joking tone, but she did mean it...every bit.

It was near the time Halloween was arriving, it hadn't occurred to her what she wanted to dress up as until now. There were so many cute things, perhaps a trip into the city with everyone would be fun. She pondered on the idea as she made her way into the home, it was now time to pick her sanctuary she would be spending a lot of her time in. It was clear she wanted an upstairs bedroom, so she inspected each room until she was finally satisfied with one. Sadly, it seemed to already be occupied by Taeku.

I hope this isn't the room he had chosen...is he resting?
Image
Chiyo slowly and steadily approached him, he was resting on the floor with a teddy bear. She couldn't help but smile, such a tense guy holding a stuffed animal? Priceless. Chiyo quickly took out her phone and took a picture of the boy. You really shouldn't hide this side of you, it's rather amusing she thought.

Finally deciding play time was over, it was time to wake him up. She kneeled down and pulled his cheeks " Oi! I have come to claim this room as my own. You shouldn't be sleeping when everyone is unpacking dumby." she smiled innocently, holding up her phone. " You did however give me quite a good picture, has your sister seen you like this? We should frame it and put up in the house." she giggled with enlightenment, clearly enjoying herself.

Taeku knew she entered the doorway at the moment that she did. He knew that she was walking closer to him. He knew she was talking her phone out to take pictures of him. That's fine, she'll be seeing many sides of him from now one since they're all living together. He just wanted her to leave the room... She didn't see that his eyes were starting to tear up because they stung because his face was buried into the teddy bear.

He could'nt take it anymore, he couldn't quite bear it anymore... Taeku mumbled into his teddy bear, "Execute program biohazard bear suit." Taking the chance of her being surprised by his mumbling, he immediately stood up, unzipped the back of his teddy bear, stepped in, zipped it back up on the inside, and made a threatening looking pose with his soft bear paws ready to strike. The red LED lights in the eyes turned on too.
Image
Taeku growls and says in a beastly voice "RAWWWWWR, YOU LITTLE SMELLY LITTLE GIRL," Taeku walks towards the window, turning his back to Chiyo, "HOW DARE YOU INVADE MY TERRITORY AND DISTURB MY SLUMBER. YOU WILL REGRET YOUR CRIME, BECAUSE THE PUNISHMENT IS..... DEATH, I WILL EAT YOU ALIVE." He turns around and stares directly at Chiyo through his red teddy bear eyes. "I PREFER LIVELY PREY, SO YOU BEST GET RUNNING, BUT TAKE YOUR TIME DOWN THE STAIRS, DON'T WANT YOU TO TRIP AND HURT YOURSELF"

Arisu stared at the house before them, noting the awfully plain work of it. It made her cringe, but no matter, she can surely fix it up later. Letting the others pass her, she continued to stare the house for every crack and for every mistake- but despite its flaws, Arisu couldn't help but feel.. happy. A tiny smile twitched at the corner of her lips, before she turned towards her small amounts of luggage. " Any of you need help bringing in their things?"
Snow white glimpsed at Nori while she picked up her things with ease, "No its alright."She replied curtly, not seeing much use of helping her, besides.. it wasnt like her to lean on others anyways. Brushing past him, she gracefully entered the home, taking in the smell of "new house."
Something so unfamiliar.. and not exactly enjoyable, but it oddly fired up the secret excitement within her.
ImageReason for her inner joy was that, This house was like a whole new canvas she can draw on, and she can start over without the mistakes she held onto before. Brushing her fingers along the white walls, she continued on the trail, curious on what room to pick until- "HOW DARE YOU INVADE MY TERRITORY AND DISTURB MY SLUMBER. YOU WILL REGRET YOUR CRIME, BECAUSE THE PUNISHMENT IS..... DEATH, I WILL EAT YOU ALIVE." She blinked. Passing by it, she stared into the familiar red eyes, the ones she often causes, but no it wasnt her fault this time- "Chiyo, you made his inside voice come out." She commented casually, before striding past the door. Poor girl- No poor Taeku, what kind of impression is he leaving?
'This is why he never got any girls for more than a month..' Rolling her eyes, she abruptly stopped at a close door... She stared at the knob for a moment, before.. slowly sliding it open. A gust of wind flew past her, as if it welcomed her to a new start. Her violet eyes scanned the plain, yet promising room with unreadable emotion. Image
Feeling the wind brush her hair again, she entered, closing the open window, with that she slid her back against the wall until she was sitting on the floor. "What a plain room." As those words slipped from her mouth, her eyes saw color, and ideas of what the room could evolve to- and suddenly (a figment of her imagination) her friends appeared, laughing in a circle. A brighter smile caressed her already beautiful features, as she got up to put away her stuff. But as she opened the boxes, she continued to hear the annoying chants of her brother, she rolled her eyes.
Getting up, she made her way to the next room, before walking in confident strides. "Stop" She simply said, standing next to Chiyo, staring at Taeku, her face bored and judging... before a.. much too innocent smile formed, "Brother... Are you an idiot." And by idiot, does he know the kind of look he is giving to.. a- she hates to say it, potential close 'friend.' Besides that.. she didnt want to see tears falling out so soon..

[Kind of low quality, but in a rush so <3]

“Nah, man. I’m good,” Robin called back in reply to Satoshi’s offer. His left hand slung the two not-fragile cases over his shoulder, while his right hand carefully, yet tightly gripped onto the fragile case’s handle. Despite being kind of spindly, he was the tallest by a couple of inches to the next-tallest member of theDreamTeam. It made sense that someone of his height would have at least some kind of inherent strength to match.

Chiyo made a joking comment, warning the two of them against rummaging through her undergarments. The thought honestly never crossed Robin’s mind; now that it has, Robin really wanted to get it out of his mind. Despite his best effort to get such thoughts out of his head, Robin’s face did turn slightly red. He shook his head to try to get the blood out. The last thing he wanted to do at this point was start off this new life they were all sharing on an absurdly awkward note. Like a roadie, he professionally lined up the cases on the side of the upstairs corridor. Though he saw Chiyo go upstairs, he didn’t see which room she had claimed.

Once he was done with that, he decided to scout out other rooms to see which one he wanted. He wouldn’t mind a smaller room. His PC had a very large tower case, but he could fit it most anywhere. Eventually, he found the smallest-sized room upstairs. It was at the far end of the upstairs hallway, across from one of the washrooms. Said washroom had a shower, a toilet, and a sink, and really designed with one person at a time- as most washrooms are designed, but this one was kinda cramped.

Before Robin began to head back downstairs to pull his two large cases back up to unpack and hook up his PC, he took off his laptop bag, set his laptop onto the bed that was already there, and started up a song he decided was the first bit of music he would play once they had arrived in Japan. The laptop’s speakers were alright, but they didn’t compare to the speakers his PC packed.

Robin headed back down the hallway. He flinched as he heard a forced beastly voice. the always-good-looking Arisu was up ahead, responding to whatever was happening. Robin passed by Arisu as she checked out another one of the rooms. He wanted to make sure everyone else had brought their stuff in so he could get to work setting up his rig. "Did anyone else need their stuff brought in?"

Satoshi went into the room claimed by Chiyo just in time to witness her trying to wake up a sleeping Taeku. He put the suitcase next to the wall and said:

''Leave him alone, he probably claimed this room for himself.''

Satoshi took one step backwards in surprise by Taeku's outbirst. Before he did anything, Arisu took everything in her own hands.

''Nobody is an idiot! You two!'' he pointed at Taeku and Chiyo.
''Settle down who will take this room and come downstairs! There are more people, who need to unpack too.''

"Did anyone else need their stuff brought in?" Robin asked.
''Take an example from Robin!'' Satoshi said and went downstairs.

The giant teddy bear Taeku looks down and scratches its head with its paws, "Aw I'm sorry, I just wanted to have a little fun scaring Chiyo..." A few sniffles could be heard inside the bear suit. Taeku wasn't crying, just that his nose was really congested and his eyes were really watery. Taeku walks up to his sister, "I got scolded by Satoshi..." Arisu responded with a sarcastic remark and secretly slipped him a pill bottle. "You can have this room Chiyo, I was really tired so I just picked a random place to nap, sorry if I really freaked you out," He trudged out of the room and into the nearest restroom. Once inside, he quickly took off his teddy bear, spat out a lot of mucous, and took two of the pills. Just from leaving the room, his eyes stopped stinging, his nose was still congested as hell though. After five minutes of blowing his nose into the sink, it felt somewhat clearer. "The stuff I do for people sometimes," he mumbles while sitting on the toilet lid. What happened was that Taeku was really allergic to whatever perfume Chiyo used: one day she came to school with it and he just started having a reaction. She caught him off guard when she came in the room earlier; in order to hide his allergic reaction from her, he had to go through that whole performance. The gargly beast voice that everyone heard was mucous building up in his throat. Chiyo must have really liked the perfume, so Taeku didn't have the heart to tell her about his condition; as long as he took his pills regularly, he shouldn't have a reaction. The pills makes him sleepy sometimes, and it contributes to the tired look he has all the time.

Taeku got out his phone and texted Arisu "thanks loser, i owe you one :P." He had forgotten his pills at home, but there were some packed in the boxes that was sent to Japan ahead of time. Being the close siblings that they are, Arisu figured her brother forgot about his pills and searched the boxes for them. She'll probably ask him to do some ridiculous task in return though...

Since the medicine needed some time to kick in, Taeku decided to catch up for a few minutes on the latest "Roommate" episode. Watching the second season of that show always makes him laugh and smile. They always have so much fun... He wonders if they too will be like the people on "Roommate", always enjoying life, laughing, and smiling. Hopefully no drama occurs in this house. Maybe he himself should open up more and stop keeping his thoughts to himself, but what if this is helping prevent any drama and heartbreak?

"What should I do Dr. Pepsi?" The bear just stares back.
Taeku gets a text, it's from Arisu: "did her perfume make you have a huge dump? don't tell me you're talking to your bear again. get out of the restroom idiot"

Arisu may be a total bitch , but he couldn't ask for a better sister. Taeku stands up, washes his face, and exits the restroom to help with unpacking.

Arisu watched her brother walk out, leaving an impression that he was crying.
But she knew better.
She rolled her eyes, as she sniffed the air. 'Chiyo's perfume hm?' She glanced at Chiyo wondering what she'll think, and decided to let it be. If Taeku didnt want to tell her that her perfume caused problems, then she wouldn't- maybe later.. but let fate take its course. "Stupid bear." She mumbled. 'Good thing I packed those pills.'
Looking at Satoshi, she gave that innocent smile that she so perfected, and saluted sarcastically. "Yes sir."(Satoshi) With that she slid past him, trotting downstairs, and to the living room where she saw a hill of boxes. "...." Oh how she hated to sweat, luckily.. she lifted a box, testing the weight, 'Not so bad. But come on people...' Arisu thought irritably. Taking two in hand, she looked at the written name... Manaka and Nori. "hmm.." Looking around, she started to the rooms that werent taken and just hoped that due to her chances, that she'll be able to guess the correct rooms.
Door 1. She slide the upper box down- "Manaka" it said... Then she went to the next room down the hall, doing the same with the remaining box. She wiped her hands, "Well aint I a good person." Arisu scoffed, before blinking at the feeling of vibration.

She slipped out her phone and saw the message her brother sent her... It was from a couple minutes ago, yet she still didnt see him help out? She sent another text... then decided to send another... "And help for god sake." (taeku)
Arisu may be strong, but she wouldnt tolerate laziness. Nodding in approval, she slipped her phone back into her pocket before returning to the orignal boxes. She stopped, 'ah thirsty..' She turned to the kitchen but stopped again, '... no drinks..'
Her eyes widened a fracture.. and she felt a moment of shock- They have nothing in the house!
They must address this situation at once! Arisu wouldnt go by, waiting for food, or living in an unfurnished out. "Hey guys? If you want to feast on dust and air tonight, maybe we should go get something from the market nearby." (Nori, Manaka, Robin, Anyone downstairs) She looked at the group who remained outside and the ones who started to come down from outside.

[Ah crap, I didnt see that, sorry guy ^^]

Chiyo was very much caught off guard by Taeku's little performance, it was a whole entire side she didn't even know from the boy. She stumbled back a bit, mostly in shock then fear. Thankfully just on time Arisu came in to settle down her brother, but not only her, but Satoshi as well. He came to scold them all as usual, he was like the parent of the group.

"You can have this room Chiyo, I was really tired so I just picked a random place to nap, sorry if I really freaked you out," she blinked and watched him escort himself out of now "Her" room, she couldn't help but feel a bit guilty. She was ready to fight for the room, but he seemed to have given up quicker than she had expected. Chiyo did not notice the sniffles that came from Taeku and instead focused her attention on Arisu. ' Is there something I'm not aware of? Those two seem to know something that I'm not catching on to.' she stared at the girl as she left the room. Chiyo had an odd relationship with her, from first impression they didn't seem that close at all, but they enjoyed anothers company. Just like how the rest of the group enjoyed the company of each other.

"Hey guys? If you want to feast on dust and air tonight, maybe we should go get something from the market nearby."
Arisu called out, if Chiyo was right Taeku had mentioned something about some guy he knew that had brought their things by boat and also would provide some food for them for a good week.] " Arisu~! Perhaps you should check the fridge before saying such a thing~!" She called out with a joyful voice, but it seemed half insulting.

Chiyo cheerfully grabbed the suitcases in the hall and began to unpack her things. She started with easy things like clothes and began hanging them in the closet, which could barely hold all of it. She loved he cute clothes and with each one she hanged more excitement was added on. All the rooms already had basic furniture in them, so it made things a bit easier. So Chiyo continued to unpack her things, thinking about her future here in this new place.

Nobuko has made several trips abroad for various purposes before (all funded by financial aid, of course), so the plane ride hadn't been any different from before. Of course, there was always this sort of giddiness at the very start of the trip, but hours of sitting down with minimal leg space could only be so entertaining. Not even the drama film that played during the flight could alleviate much of her boredom. She did, however, get some review in for the placement test the university was to give her when she starts going. That's a plus. But like all flights, what the young lady looked forward to the most was the destination. This was no exception.

When the group had finally arrived at the house, Nobuko sighed, rather pleased. It wasn't exactly as grandiose as it had been described previously, but it just about fit her expectations. She sighed again and shook her head with a smile as Chiyo spoke. Her ears picked up Satoshi's ringtone, and she glanced at him for a moment before he went off. Deciding to ask later, she gripped onto her backpack and carried two of her rolling bags instead the house. She planned to wait until everyone has chosen their rooms before beginning to unpack, but she assumed that no one would really want the office rooms, so she dropped her things in the downstairs office room. The room wasn't too bad, anyway, and the built in desk was convenient.

As she stepped out of the house, she could hear the ruckus that was going on upstairs. Nobuko jumped slightly, a little surprised that Taeku had resort to "that" so early. She chuckled, hearing Satoshi's chiding voice. For something so lively to happen on day one, she could only wonder what was waiting for them in the times to come. Nobuko looked at the boxes lying before her and scratched her head, preparing to lift them up. The first box she carried with a grunt, underestimating its weight.

"Did anyone else need their stuff brought in?"

Nobuko huffed, keeping the slipping box up with her knees. "I think I'm good," she said to Robin, slightly faltering at the last word. "Manaka might need help, though." She looked towards the boxes, and her eyes deviated to the pile which belonged to her and sighed inwardly.

"Are you guys ever going to come in?

Nobuko chuckled lightly. "I'm getting there," she replied. Before continuing, she looked to Robin and raised her brow. "Maybe you should rest for a bit? I take it you're not used to planes," she said, remembering what she observed of him during the ride. She nodded encouragingly and walked toward her room. As she set the box down, she took out a slip of paper from her back pocket. It was an itinerary for the first week of their stay she planned out for the group, hoping to introduce it in more detail later. She was getting rather hungry, and as much as she wanted to rest for a bit, her stomach says otherwise.

Taeku who had been sorting the boxes on the second floor since coming out of the restroom, heard the entire exchange between Chiyo and Arisu, and let out a loud sigh; He hoped the friction between those two doesn't cause any earthquakes... He heard the door open and Arisu calling out to the remaining friends still lingering outside. Nobuko was the first one to enter carrying a box that seemed too heavy for her; that's just like her to not want to rely on anyone else... Taeku placed down the last box in it's respective pile and slid down the railing of the stairs just as Nobuko passed by, hoping she didn't notice him, then walked out the door nodding greetings silently to the ones outside. He inspected how durable Nobuko's boxes were; they seemed pretty sturdy: good quality cardboard. As efficiently and quickly as possible, picked up one box after another and set them in two rows of 3 in each row, and one box on top of each box. The wood floors of this Japanese house should be clean so the boxes will slide quite smoothly. Before pushing, he made sure the boxes didn't dent under the pressure, they didn't. It was good to go, thankfully his feet were a tad bit sweaty generating great traction for the task he was about to perform. Taking in a breath and releasing it as he pushed, the boxes moved with barely any force required from him. The box convoy arrived without a problem at Nobuko's room.

Normally if he was this tired, he would just say nothing; since this was a special occasion, Taeku allowed himself to suggest a competition. "So there are a few of your boxes left out there... wanna have a box sliding race? If you win I'll cook whatever you want as long as it doesn't take too long and the ingredients are already available; If I win, you get ramen. So how about it?" He didn't know she was hungry, but who wasn't at this point. It was probably strange for him to approach her like this, but since this was one of the few rare moments they were somewhat alone and she wasn't busy with something, so....

He must be really sleep deprived... He'll probably say something he doesn't to say in the first place... Was this flirting?

"One sec," He ran to the kitchen and picked up two of the glasses of beverages he prepared for everyone, and ran back to Nobuko. "Here drink this," he said as he handed a glass of the diced apples soaked in citrus water, then he promptly chugged down his own: that'll unfog his head for a bit.

That's right, it was only his childish side seeking fun in some harmless competition. Nothing more nothing less.

Arisu was right. Everyone just moved in and had to take care of so many things, including buying food. They barely had time to adjust their mindsets to the fact that they've just moved in to Tokyo because all of the preparations. At least Satoshi had this mindset.

Without offering any help, Satoshi picked up one big box from Manaka's belongings.
"Let's take care for one thing at a time." he said and took another big box.
"After placing everything to their respective places, we'll gather some money from each and go to the groceries store." he took a smaller one.
"Everyone will come and pick something, but please! Consider the allowances and don't buy too much junk food! Okay, Manaka, where should we put your belongings?"

Being successfully ignored, Nori shrugged, turned on his heel with hands in pockets and made his way back inside but not before he met Arisu's emotionless gaze with his own. Bored, he began to count how many steps it took to get to his room and it took approximately 57 steps from the front door to his room. When he entered a faint thudding noise could be heard from the corner of the room where all his belongings he brought in were at. He instantly knew what and who was making that noise so he made his way over to the small cage and leaned down opening. A small black and white puff ball of a dog bolted out with excitement to see Nori. The pup's name was Momiji or Miji for short, he's Nori's Husky pup and his best friend.

It barked twice before pawing at it's owners leg. Nori bent down with a small warm smile on his face as he rubbed the pups head then picked him up and placed him in the grey sweater he was wearing. Momiji poked his head out of the sweat along with his two front paws panting happily. " Come on buddy let's go see what the others are up to." Nori walked out of his room seeing everyone scrambling about. Without a word Nori began to help placing the boxes in their respective places. He had to scope the rooms out though because he didn't know yet who chose what room. After sorting that out he found that he had unconsciously stacked everyones boxes in their rooms neatly.

Hm, did I really do that? Meh whatever. Shrugging to himself he was greeted with a wet kiss from Momiji on the chin. Nori couldn't hold back a faint chuckle as he quickly pecked Miji on the head before stretching out. He felt his stomach rumble and looked around for a second before walking up to Arisu. " Yo, we still taking that trip to the market?" Momiji let out a small bark as a greeting to Arisu, his big bright blue eyes staring up at her happily.

The market was enormous. It sold a great variety of things a person would need and food wasn't the only example. Every stand was in order and great danger from the running and screaming children, teenagers and even some adults.
''Here goes nothing...'' Satoshi thought as he reached a shopping cart. He found it a little difficult to detach it from the rest. No matter what, Satoshi knew he had to be careful.
''Everything is fine.'' He lied to his housemates.
''I'll get it any... second...'


Little did Satoshi know how much effort he had to put into not shouting a swear word once he managed to detach the cart, which rolled backwards, causing a chain reaction once it bumped into a woman, carrying enormous bags of products. She fell on the ground, along with the food that spread at a big radius around her. A running child slipped on a bag of chips and fell on his face. The area was filled by loud bawling from the kid. His father then approached the fallen woman and started shouting at her.

''You guys go. I'll catch up.'' Satoshi told the rest, went to the man and started explaining everything.
