Kenji sat down, slightly embarrassed. He hated school, he hated being confined or being made to do something.... freedom was all he truly wanted. It was the same everyday, he was often late and punished by Hama-Sensei for it too, he knew that this time he would be punished too unless he paid attention.

Looking to the blackboard in front if him, he firstly noticed the old chalk stains in the left hand corner and began staring at them to figure our what they might say...

Procrastinate nothing but book

Procrastinate night and black

Procrastinate now and brake

None of his attempts at making sense of the old stains came to anything. In fact, he was sure he was just seeing things to fill time before the end of lesson.

Look at the board Kenji He thought to himself before idly scanning the Haiku that was written in Kanji.

Over the wintry
forest, winds howl in rage
with no leaves to blow.
- Natsume Soseki


What did it even mean, was there really any sense to be of something so short he wondered. It was often Kenji's downfall when it came to words that he never read between the lines. Rather he saw everything for what is was, he saw everything as it seemed on the outside before considering what was on the inside. Making him rather recluse and lonely.
When Kenji finally decided no sense could be make of the Haiku he put his pen to paper, while Hama questioned other students about the 'Deeper meaning'.
He began to draw a tree, with a pile of leaves at the bottom with a tiger lying among them...

' Often you have to look for the deeper meaning of a Haiku, there are so many... and no answer is wrong because it is all about how it makes you feel. What does it make you think...... Hima?!'

The loud Echo of 'Hima' rung into Kenji's ears, causing him to jump up and knock his notepad under Yoshino's desk. He had no idea what he had been asked, he looked around sheepishly to see if any of the answers jumped out at him. Nothing.

Hama pointed to the door, Kenji picked up his bag and left the class. He headed back outside into the large field where students often had their lunch and hangout... Kenji sat under and old withering tree.... He totally forgot about his notepad.

Yoshino Mei Sohma


Yoshino put up her hand with her response on her lips, turning to look at the teacher only to catch sight of the doodle on Kenji's page as it slowly blossomed from random lines to become a tree with a pile of leaves and a tiger lying in them. The tiger was what caught her eye and the sight of it caused the Sohma to fall silent and pull her hand back down, shaking her head as Hama-sensei paused to look at her curiously before continuing in his own speech.

The tiger.. how..?

Curious, piercing red eyes shot over to the raven haired male as he boredly added to his drawing. Only to be pulled from his daydream-like state by the raised voice of the bespectacled teacher at the front of the class and result in his jump up from his seat, his notepad flying under Yoshino's own desk. The female's eyes widened as she raised her legs up to avoid being hit by the bound book of paper, her face pale as she stared down at the offensive drawing.

Not that it was truly offensive to her but.. it struck to close to home, what with the curse of the Tiger being her infliction..

Yoshino shook her head free of these troublesome thoughts as she quickly bent and picked up the pad, flipping it closed and hiding it under her now closed notebook. She raised her hand and stood as she was called upon.

"To myself," she started, her voice musical despite the plain topic, "I feel that Soseki-san is speaking of how dead and tired one can feel, especially during the cold winter months, and the lack of energy to fuel other emotions that would otherwise become apparent, say, during a time of warmth and cheer." She bowed as she returned to her seat, only to hear the bell sound as she did so.

Hama-sensei was quiet as he nodded, clearly giving her theory some thought, before looking to the rest of the class who waited in their seats. They were staring expectantly at the teacher who, now, spoke. "I'll see you all after break to continue speaking about your thoughts on this Haiku."

With that said, every student rose from their seats and gathered their things together to run off and see their friends for the few minutes they had before classes resumed. Yoshino, on the other hand, gathered her belongings and piled them into her bag before swiftly exiting the classroom and rushing down the hall with the grace of the tiger.

---


Yoshino found Kenji by the withered old cherry blossom tree she, herself, often sat by within a few minutes of searching. God, he was nearly as predictable as she was!

"Hey, Hima-san!" Yoshino wasn't one to call someone by first name unless asked, nor one to not use honourifics. The notepad the male had dropped was in her hands though she didn't hand it to him as she came to a stop a few feet from him. Instead, Yoshino very purposely opened the pad and flipped through a few of the pages. Her expression was rather blank, though her eyes were narrowed, as she glanced at several drawings before snapping the book closed and holding it out toward Kenji. "Here, you left this in the classroom." She watched him for his response to her Alpha-female act, the way she only behaved when she felt threatened or as if the family secret was threatened. And, well, she felt as though it was but decided to play it off with a small smile.

"Your drawings are very good," the pink haired female murmured, her voice soft as she made a motion as though to leave. "I couldn't help but notice the one you were making in Japanese Literature," she added before waving her hand to the pad that Kenji now held. "But the others are.. wow." Her expression showed her sincerity as she sent another smile toward Kenji.

Daisuke smiled as he walked into her place, it was the first time he had ever been in there.
"Do you need anymore windows geez how do you sleep during the day" Sitting himself on the couch while blushing. Yawning while she asked him the question. "Uh I guess some egg over easy with bacon and toast." Looking over to her with a slight blush as music started to play. He'd listen without an argument to whatever she put on. "So I guess you don't have work right I think last time I saw you, you where working at that cafe in town. Most of the girls there are cute I guess they made an exception to you"

He of course didn't mean it but he had to keep his act up. Not wanting to be so obvious on his feelings for her. The idea of the rooster came up for a moment. She was a playful spirit like he was and always doing something. But she dressed like, looked like a dude. Daisuke could never go out with someone like that. Not that he was homophobic it just wasn't his cup of tea. People around him would see the couple and think otherwise, it would irritate him to much. He was lost in his own thoughts for a moment the sound of the music brought him back. "That meeting was so dull and boring"

"Do you need anymore windows geez how do you sleep during the day" Sitting himself on the couch while blushing.

"I get up with the sun dear Daisuke" She replied with a smile as P!nk started playing 'Walk of Shame'

"Uh I guess some egg over easy with bacon and toast." Looking over to her with a slight blush as music started to play.

"So I guess you don't have work right I think last time I saw you, you where working at that cafe in town. Most of the girls there are cute I guess they made an exception to you" He said. Rei felt the sting of the off handed insult and tried to shrug it off....but really it had kind of hurt her feelings.

He seemed to get lost in thought and Rei didnt mind because she wanted a few minutes to think herself. He probably was thinking about the chicken...She wondered if he liked the chicken...she didn't see why not....It kinda almost upset her, but then, she realized how dumb that was, it wasnt as if she and the ram had anything anyways. She sighed as she started cooking. Still lost in her own world she started dancing around the kitchen and singing along with the music as she cooked

"That meeting was so dull and boring" He said

"Yeah, they always are" she murmured as she flipped the eggs with grace and ease

Kenji sat beneath a withering blossom tree, the pink petals fell softly onto his head. There was a cold breeze, with a scent of morning due but it was nothing compared to the smell of the crisp salt sea of Cornwall. As Kenji's mind drifted to the thought of his Mother's home he wondered whether he would ever truly be happy with life. So far all it had done was knock him down.

"Hey, Hima-san!"

His thought process was broken, he gazed up with a dizzy expression, it took him a few minuted to come back to reality. He noticed that she was flicking through his book.... rather than handing it straight back. He stood up.

"Here, you left this in the classroom."

Even though Yoshino had snapped the book shut, and came across slightly rude, Kenji gently took the book from her hands and stared into her red eyes, trying to find the right words to say. He wondered whether he had offended her in some way.

He chose to say nothing, rather he noticed the cherry blossoms that fell landed on her shoulder, they were the same colour as her hair. This was truly memorizing to him, she was standing there in front of him, she was being defensive but no matter which way he looked at it she was rather beautiful.

He soon snapped out of yet another daydream as she made indication of leaving:
"Your drawings are very good,"....."I couldn't help but notice the one you were making in Japanese Literature,"

He didn't quite catch the last part of what she had said, but as she turned away he felt an urge to continue the conversation.

'Sohma-San... I apologize that you had to come find me to give me this.... I should have been listening rather than doodling anyway.' He edged forward a little to catch up to her.
' The picture in literature, was what the Haiku said to me... I couldn't write it down so I drew it instead... the tiger can sometimes symbolism loneliness... but it is also beautiful just like the poem.... You can have it if you like?'

He really had no idea where all of that had come from or why he offered one of his poor drawings to her.

Yoshino Mei Sohma


Yoshino paused as the male replied to her, something she hadn't entirely expected. She'd noticed how Kenji had begun to daydream again, his eyes making it clear he was zoning out while he'd stared at her.. and, to be honest, she'd found it slightly unnerving as he'd done so. Was something on her face? Her uniform? She dropped her unique coloured eyes to catch a glimpse of her skirt, just in case.

However, despite this, she listened and even turned back to face him to give her full attention with a confused smile on her lips. He was apologizing to her? What a curiously strange, and normal, boy. This was yet another puzzle to her as not many people showed her such a kindness.. Most people just continued on with their lives, not that she really minded much anyway, but Kenji seemed to be different.

"Ah, yes," Yoshino mumbled, internally berating herself for being so stupid and jumping to conclusions. "Of course, it was no trouble at all. Really." She pretended not to notice as he took the tiniest of steps forward, toward her. Did he intend to befriend her? She didn't know how to really do such a thing, gain friends.. Although, perhaps that was in an effort to keep the Sohma family curse the secret it had always been. With this thought in mind, she relaxed her body slightly and allowed her arms to fall to her sides as she continued the conversation.

"But what a unique interpretation you've thought of," her tone was appraising, changing from her typical cool tone to one that displayed more warmth and interest. She nodded, her expression thoughtful as she considered the dark haired male in front of her and the courtesy he had just extended. "I'd like that," Yoshino answered truthfully, surprising herself at her blatant honesty. Maybe she really did like that drawing more than she'd feared Kenji knowing the secret.. Hm.

The pink haired Sohma eyed Kenji for a moment before releasing a soft sigh, "It's almost noon and I was thinking of going home for lunch... would you care to join me?" Her question startled herself but this was easily hidden with a nonchalant shrug of her shoulders and the barely noticeable increase in her smile. "I live on a shrine not far from here and I know my cousin," she tried not to stress the word, "was hoping for us to bring friends to share a meal."

Yoshino's eyes widened slightly as she realized he might have other plans or, perhaps, wouldn't want to dine with a Sohma. hurriedly, she continued, "I mean, you don't have to but I know Taiga would be happy to see me bring a friend home, for once." Clearly, extending invitations wasn't something she did often.

When Yoshino said yes to taking his art, Kenji smiled. Someone else appreciated his work and almost understood him. He tugged at his shirt and let out a small chuckle, this girl, a Sohma had actually spoken to him the class clown. Most people would not bother, or have chucked away his notepad, but she came all this way to hand it back.

"It's almost noon and I was thinking of going home for lunch... would you care to join me?"

He let out a huge breath and fell back on himself a little. She had invited him to lunch, when he would usually just eat alone. He pondered saying no, he did not want to intrude on her since she had gone out of her own way to return his notepad. Kenji also thought about the fact that other Sohma's would be there, that large house near his home always creeped him out, especially the dark haired female he often saw staring from the window. Something was telling him not get involved with such a secret family.

' I would love to come!' He blurted out before he could stop himself... his cheeks began to flush red.
He had actually planned to say no, but something made him say yes. It may have been her awkward way of asking him, or her deep red eyes... he just couldn't tell.

Yoshino Mei Sohma


This boy truly is one of a kind, she thought as her lips pulled away to reveal perfectly straight white teeth, her smile lovely and clearly genuine as she observed the blush that rose in the male's tanned cheeks. Of course, she ignored this in an attempt to avoid further embarrassing Kenji as she gave a nod of her head. "Shall we then?"

Yoshino, with a slight wave of her pale hand, motioned for the male to come with her as she stepped away from him. She fully expected him to back out, to say he had changed his mind.. or even just run away. After all, not many became involved with the large, strange family that often kept to themselves.

"We live at a shrine," she stated carefully, fully aware she could either be talking to Kenji or not to anyone at all but thin air. Regardless of how crazy she would have appeared, the pink haired girl continued to speak in an effort to not scare the young man off. Although, her talkativeness most likely betrayed her own anxiety which was still at a relatively low level within her. "Taiga is practically my guardian," Yoshino added softly, her tone rather cheerful as her shoes met the sidewalk and she continued walking. "He cooks for us and looks after the shrine, keeping it tidy and organized.."

The female trailed off, quite aware of how out of hand her babbling was becoming, before she turned her head to look at the raven-haired jokester. They'd be reaching her house in a few moments and she was trying to give him another chance to turn away, though felt a slight pang at the thought that he might take her up on it. He seemed to be the closest thing she had to an actual friend.

"Here we are," Yoshino stated cheerfully as she stopped and motioned with her hands to the large buildings that made up the shrine; the gates they had yet to pass through, the open building with an alter in clear view, the several storerooms and the actual residence. "Welcome to the Sohma estate," she added as she stepped between the two posts and the open metal gates, "Let's find Taiga and get something to eat!"

He watched her flip the eggs and dance around. His eyes followed her hips before shaking his head and stood up. "Always boring but you where there I guess that's the good part huh?"

Walking over to the kitchen and opened her fridge making himself at home. He took out the cartoon of orange juice he found and looked through her cabinets. Once he found her glasses he took out two and poured the juice. Since there was no sign of Haku he assumed she didn't come along, or she was far behind them. "How do you cook so gracefully. I can't flip an egg without breaking the yoke." His red eyes caught in line with hers before looking away bashfully.

"You said...earlier...that...that well you liked me as much as Haku did...or might. Were you just teasing her or did you mean it." Even though he was nothing short of a badass, he became very sheepish around her. "Just curious you know" he laughed nervously as he faced away from her. " damn did that brat get lost or just not come" quickly changing the subject to Kohaku.

"Shall we then?"

Kenji was stunned, he had just decided to go to girls house for tea to meet her guardian...
He just knew that everyone would start talking at school about how he was always by himself and now he was hanging around with the Sohma's. Strangely this did not even bother him, Yoshino had a kind heart and a caring personality... plus she was uniquely beautiful.

He began to follow her ' you live at a shrine huh?, I'm rather jealous I live in a crappy apartment.' he responded.
Though Kenji looked like a fool, he had noticed that Yoshino had began to talk to him more, which he rather liked... someone was finally making an effort.

Once the pink haired girl began to mention Taiga, Kenji began to feel uneasy ' Are you sure your guardian will be ok with me coming over, I don't want to intrude on you' he then let out an awkward giggle. However by this point the shrine was only a few seconds away and he was being welcomed to the estate, Kenji realized there was no going back at this point. He wouldn't dream of leaving now because he knew what an ache someone leaving could cause on your heart.

"Ive been on my own for a while, and i used to cook for my dad, he worked so much that he didn't have time to....when he died and my mom got sick...i had to take care of her too...she's particular about her food." Rei said with a small sad smile. she paused and listened to the silence.

"You said...earlier...that...that well you liked me as much as Haku did...or might. Were you just teasing her or did you mean it." He asked looking seriously embarrassed.

"Does it matter if i do? i mean yes, i do, obvious, but...."

"damn did that brat get lost or just not come" quickly changing the subject to Kohaku. Rei sighed...nope it didnt matter.

"I get the feeling he doesnt like me....so i doubt she''ll show" Rei said cheerfully as she dropped some eggs on a plate.

Suzume Nakashima


"Mother" Suzume called, "Will you come and tie this for me I can't manage it this morning?". Soon the padding of socked feet coming upstairs was heard and then a sigh in the doorway.

"Suzume, really you're 19 I'm sure you can manage dressing yourself" her mother rested a hand gently on her hip giving her a look of annoyance.

"Mother I cut my finger chopping vegetables yesterday and it's making this tie very difficult". Suzume tried to do it again but it kept slipping from her bandaged finger. Her mother sighed wiped her hands on the apron she was wearing, walked over and tied the string on the crimson red Hakama.

"There I got, now you need to get going you're running late and you know how Grandpa gets when you're late on your days at the shrine" Suzume's mother smiled at her daughter then reached up and tucked a piece of her daughter's hair neatly behind her ear. "Always a mess even when you're on time, so it's a disaster when you're late" she teased.

Suzume blushed in embarrassment, grabbed her bag filled with manga, a change of clothes, and homework for her to work on if it's slow at the shrine... which it usually was.

Respectfully she nodded to her mother, "Alright mama I'm off now" and she turned to go out the door.

Her mother gasped "Suzume-chan your bento is on the kitchen counter don't forget to grab it on your way out" she called down the stairs.

Suzume nodded and grabbed the bento box quickly "Thanks mother, I see you later this afternoon good bye" she called back.

The middle aged woman watched as her daughter walked up the front walk way out the gate and on her way. "Take care my little girl" she mumbled into the empty bedroom.

Suzume didn't notice her mother looking down at her from the upstairs window she was too busy thinking about the Sohma house. She had lived several blocks away from the vast estate her entire life, and for some reason she was always drawn to it. Even after hearing stories of curses and being warned by her mother and grandfather to stay away from the house or anyone that happens to come in or out of it. She didn't understand why such cations should be taken especially when she was told on the other hand that things like curses and magic weren't true.

As she waked on her way to the shrine that her grandfather ran, Suzume watched the morning hustle bustle as people hurried off to school or work. It was soon that she spied the corner beginning the Sohma's land boundaries, as she approached the corner she stood there for a moment. She had sat in front of the Sohma house as a child and was approached by a young boy from inside. She knew of course that he was no longer a boy now, and probably not much older than herself. But still the mental image of the dark haired boy sticking his head out the front gate lingered in her head.

She stopped in front of the gate to the main estate, it was tall and wooden, the slates of wood just far enough apart for Suzume to peer through the spaces in between. She looked around to see if anyone was around that she knew, knowing well that if word got back to her mother or grandfather that she had even glanced at the Sohma house would he a sore spot indeed. When she was sure the coast was clear she walked up to the gate and peeped through. The grounds surrounding the house were beautiful gardens with all kinds of flowers and trees like the house itself had just grown in the midst of a grand garden. There were clear beautiful ponds, that Suzume had always wondered if there were Koi. She could hear the trickling of water and the sound of the shishi-odoshi, it's distinct sound of the bamboo hitting stone after filling and spilling the water. She smiled wondering what it might be like to live in such a grand place as the Sohma house. The house's were built int he old world style but Suzume had always thought of the houses as cozy and welcoming.

She sighed for a moment not really seeing anyone, "Well it seems quiet around here, really Suzume how can you hold onto something that happened so long ago. Are you really so foolish and childish?" she spoke to herself.

If her brother had been there he would have teased her and made a comment about that being the first sign that someone has gone mad. But then again he never really had ever said anything kind or compliment her. She had always been his "annoying" baby sister that he really didn't want around. It was then that a group of sparrows in the court yard pecking around for little insects and seeds on the ground landed around the foot of a large tree. She couldn't help but think of her grandmother who had passed away nearly ten years before. "Come my little Suzume" she would say, gently calling to her Suzume could remember sitting in her lap for what seemed like hours just listening to her stories. "Some day little one you'll have something grand and great to do, even though you are small never think yourself unimportant my Suzume". With a smile she still peered through the Sohma's gate unaware of things going on around her.

Taiga paused, evaluating the appearance of the food arranged neatly on the table in front of him. He'd finished cleaning the house with plenty of time to spare, so he'd had plenty of time to cook. Various kinds of onigiri (rice balls) wrapped with a piece of seaweed were on a plate the middle of the table alongside some sliced apples. Some tamagoyaki (a slightly-sweet layered omelet) served as the other main dish.

Satisfied with what he saw, Taiga unhurriedly untied his apron and arranged the seating cushions around the table. Heading out and around to the ablution pavilion, he smiled and waved when he saw Yoshino and a boy, who he guessed was a friend from school, pass through the Torii gate.

"You're just in time, Yoshi-chan! Lunch is on the table!" he was obviously in an extremely good mood, as usual. Not much could get the dog zodiac down after he'd spent the morning cleaning and cooking; two of his favorite things to do since he'd come to be in charge of the shrine. It was definitely a relaxing atmosphere, so it was no wonder he enjoyed it so.

Mind wandering momentarily, he realized he'd forgotten something at the main house when he'd left from the meeting. "I'll be right back, Yoshi-chan! I forgot something earlier. Help yourselves to whatever you like!" he smiled as he hurried past them, only pausing momentarily to give the young tiger zodiac a glance that clearly said be careful.

Hurrying over to the main house, he almost walked into a girl that was peering through the gaps in the gate. "Ah. Sorry! I didn't see you there!"

"Ah. Sorry! I didn't see you there!"

Suzume jumped when she heard a voice behind her she had been so focused on what was on the other side of the gate the she had almost lost all track of the world going on around her.

She bowed respectively "I'm so sorry I must be in the way" she hopped he didn't see the blush across of her cheeks out of sure embarrassment. She stepped away from the gate, wondering if he thought she was some sort of creep peeping trough his families gate. When she stood up again form the bow she noticed that the young man had white hair. She thought it was unusual but decided not to comment. Suzume also assumed he was a Sohma since he was trying to get through the gate.

"You probably think I'm some kind of weirdo just peeping through gate like that. It's just I pass by here almost every day and I always like to admire the beautiful grounds and buildings. It's almost like a whole other time in there." she said with a smile. She straightened out the bottom of her her haori, "Well I guess I'll go, I have to get to my grandfathers shrine before wonders where I am".

"Who wouldn't like you? They would be an idiot for not seeing how great you are" he said angered at her comment. Blushing heavily and looked away. "I mean I'm better obviously but still.." He looked towards the eggs she put on the plate and was happy to finally settle the grows coming from his stomach.

He started eating and smiled. "Mmm this is pretty good, I know eggs are simple but they are perfect." Looking to her again. "Hey since you don't want have work you want to....I don't know...hang out. Maybe go downtown or so something. Movies or even pick up those brats from school." Trying to appear more noble than he actually was. "Or the shrines or something" he mumbled to himself ,cursing his poor abilities on asking her on a date. Not like he had much experience girls would want to date him but he couldn't touch them. But this one....this one he could and it made all the difference in the world.

"You live at a shrine, huh? I'm rather jealous, I live in a crappy apartment." Kenji replied as he had followed the girl, leaving her rather cheerful to know that he was willing to converse with her. Though she knew, even without looking at the male, that he had grown nervous upon hearing of Yoshino's guardian. He happened to mention it a few moments later.

"Taiga won't mind at all," she assured him with a smile, nodding her head encouragingly as they passed through the Torii gate.

"You're just in time, Yoshi-chan! Lunch is on the table!" The slightly-older male in question called to her, a grin on his face as he caught sight of the pair coming closer to the house. Yoshino turned her head to wink at Kenji, momentarily hiding one of her ruby coloured orb-like eyes as if to say 'told you'. The cheerful Dog of the zodiac told them to help themselves to lunch as he passed, shooting her a look that only she would decipher.

A look that the Sohma family members often gave each other if there was a normal human nearby. The one that told the individual to be cautious of what they said and did.

Yoshino pretended she hadn't seen it as she was sure there would be no issues and smiled in return to Taiga, "Hurry back or we might eat it all!" She laughed at her own joke, trying to get Kenji to relax as she continued on into the house.

Slipping her small feet out of her shoes, the pink haired female stretched her arms as she moved down the hall and into the dining area. Her eyes widened in surprise at the sight of the amount of food that sat on the table.

"Taiga has really outdone himself this time," she muttered, ducking her head as a low giggle escaped her lips. She turned her head to look at her schoolmate as he followed her in, waiting to see his own expression. Oddly enough, she was curious as to how he'd react. Especially after the ups and downs of anxiety the poor boy had been having since she'd invited him over.

“But are you sure you aren’t mistaking the monkey for the chicken?” Those words vibrated through her mind as she considered them. What did she mean? 'Maybe she didnt get the point' However the way she voiced those words- it couldnt just mean nothing. 'She's defiantly picking on me.. but what..'
"Ah its Kohaku-Kun!" He blinks and turns his attention towards a pair of girls, who were maybe a year below him. Not sure on how to respond, he allowed his manors to take course.
"Good morning.." They both sqeaked shyly.
A boyish smile pulled at his lips and he nodded a polite greeting. "Good morning." resuming towards class, he heard the squeals of the two behind him. Oh how females react. Why though. Maybe it was because the sohmas were popular, both females and males alike for they all had their charms. However it was him [aka her] that was the only one who can be touched by females, which could be troublesome during valentimes.. He shuddered.
'so females squeal, kya, and blush- why?"- “But are you sure you aren’t mistaking the monkey for the chicken?” '....' His eyes widened in realization and his hand automactically covered his red cheeks . W-what, She thought that! What did he/she ever do to apply that! Not sure on how to feel, she inhaled quietly. Calm.. Smoothly, she regained composure, but couldnt help but fluster at the idea.
Did she like the ram?
-
Tatsou nodded. "Alright thank you, mhm..good bye." Closing his cell, he sighed. Turns out that one of the teaching roles at the school were open, and now he was officially a nurse and homeroom teacher supposedly. Really the one who picked up was stuttering and chit chatting the whole time, so he had no idea what he gotten into. "...damn.." Slipping out a cig, he tucked it between his lips and lit it. What was he going to do. He had no choice but to follow orders.
He did owe her after all. He was one of the reasons for her misery, and heartless person.
What could he do for her other then serve her///
Besides, he scoffed, this could be a good opportunity to relax.
-
Laid acrossed the floor, was a dump of fabric, or more specifically, Rin the head. With her dark hair pooled around her, she remained limp against the bamboo floors, her breath almost non existent...
The main house was empty. And It was so quiet. No zodiacs, and most of the maids were gone attending chours, even the birds stopped chirping. This was painful. They're was nothing to distract her from her suffering, and the bearings were even heavier.
"It hurts." She cried quietly, hoping for someone to come to her. No one. And she knew that from the start that no one was going to be for her. Not even the rat. Not even the family she gave her life for.
Oh well.. With an inwardly grimance, she closed her eyes and waited.

Kenji followed Yoshino like a duckling followed it's mother. He scuttled along behind her only briefly popping his head up from time to time. The older male who Yoshino referred to as 'Taiga' walked past him... he didn't seem to care that Kenji was accompanying Yoshino.

The older man seemed just as carefree as Yoshino, this relaxed Kenji. Being within the shrine made him miss his Gradmother Nelly, she was such a sweet old lady and she adored her only grandson Kenji. Often when he went back to Cornwall she would an array of English sweets for him, and a roast chicken dinner which was one of his favorite English dishes.

There he was again daydreaming and Yoshino had already walked ahead. Kemji sped up to catch up with her, almost bumping into her as he did so but he swung to the left hitting a wall.
' Sorry about that' he said rubbing his head.... it was at that point he noticed the food.

"Taiga has really outdone himself this time,"
Kenji nodded in agreement, and stared blankly at the table. His unlce could not cook at all and Kenji couldn't either. It was strange that in the morning he had woken to burnt toast and now he was feasting with the Sohma's.
Once Kenji had gotten over his awe he noticed a little giggle from Yoshino which made him blush.

' You have a sweet laugh' he said without thinking, quickly changing the subject ' imagine the dumbest boy in school dining with the smartest girl... Thank-you Yoshino...Chan?..'. Kenji was not sure he was entitled to say her name in such a way, so he waited for her to scold him.

Ichirou Sohma


"Hello, Welcome to Phuk Et, Table for one? Or perhaps you'd like to sit at the bar?" the girl asked with a polite smile.

“I think I’ll stick with a table,” he said with an equally polite smile. “Is this place okay to smoke in? I can wait if it isn’t, but I didn’t get to finish my last one. Had to take a cousin to school.” Ichirou followed her back to the table, walking a few paces behind. “This is my first time here, and you look like a nice girl. Got any suggestions for me?”


Keiko Sohma


Keiko made her way into the classroom, almost late. She had been stopped several times by several people. The hardest things were trying to get people to let her leave. She never was able to straight out tell people that she had to leave, and trying to close a conversation took forever when they kept opening it back up. It was just as bad once she stepped into the classroom, up until the bell rang. Everyone rushed into their seats, hoping to not be caught by the teacher. “Hey Keiko,” a girl named Kimi started. “I heard from Shohei that you have a sexy driver that drives you everywhere. Is that true? Do you like him,” she whispered the last part.

Keiko smiled awkwardly at Kimi. “Um … no. He’s my cousin and is just kind enough to give me rides to school on his way to work.” Kimi slouched in her chair with a pout on her face. She was probably looking for some long and romantic story between the two. The boy, Shohei, that had informed her of my cousin, walked in, as if on queue.

“They’re just cousins … only cousins.” Shohei looked slightly disappointed too. Some times teenagers, even though she was one herself, confused her completely.

Oh, Keiko thought out of no where, pulling out her planner. I have to remember to visit Rin after school. If Ichirou can’t get me, then I’ll just walk. Keiko wrote down the plan quickly on a free space. She shouldn’t have had to much homework tonight, so she wouldn’t feel horrible for rushing in and out like she had this morning. Maybe I'll see some of the other Junishii while I'm there ... it's always nice to see them.

YOUKO

“I think I’ll stick with a table,” he said with an equally polite smile. “Is this place okay to smoke in? I can wait if it isn’t, but I didn’t get to finish my last one. Had to take a cousin to school.” Ichirou followed her back to the table, walking a few paces behind. “This is my first time here, and you look like a nice girl. Got any suggestions for me?”

Youko smiled.

“Depends on what you’ve got a taste for. For breakfast we have great omelets, French toast, or pancakes, I’m personally a fan of the French toast….uhm…then for the lunch menu we have lots of great soups, I love the clam chowder and the potato soup. And for dinner….well we make pretty much anything…I personally like the steak, baked potatoes and broccoli salad….and of course I must recommend our ice-cream shakes and our coffee!” She said with a smile as she pointed each meal out on the menu.

“Let me know when you’re ready to order.” She said with a smile as she noted a new set of customers enter.
“I’ll be right back.” She said then went to get the new customer a table. She politely gave the group menus and turned to go back to Ichirou’s table but only got a few feet away before she felt a hand on her but. She gasped and spun around anger flashing through her veins. She felt fury run through her veins but she did her best to bite her tongue. She looked at the man and calmed herself before she said: “Sir, please don’t touch me” The man leered at her.

“Don’t dress like a whore and I won’t want to touch.” He said wile laughing.

“I think you should leave sir….”

“I think ill stay and enjoy the view. Bring me a sand which girl” he said. Youko felt her fury rise but she just turned around and walked back over to Ichirou, her face burning and her eyes stinging. She kept her composure and smiled at him.

“Ready to order yet?” she asked


REI

"Who wouldn't like you? They would be an idiot for not seeing how great you are" he said.

“Thanks” she said with a grin.

Blushing heavily he looked away. "I mean I'm better obviously but still.." He looked towards the eggs she put on the plate dug in.

"Mmm this is pretty good, I know eggs are simple but they are perfect." Looking to her again. "Hey since you don't want have work you want to....I don't know...hang out. Maybe go downtown or so something. Movies or even pick up those brats from school… Or the shrines or something" he mumbled.

“are you asking me out?” she said with a giggle before she composed herself.

“Never mind, id love to hang out” she said with a grin as she took a bite of her own eggs.

Yoshino Mei Sohma


Yoshino found herself unable to hide the giggle that escaped her when the male nearly walked into her and, quickly avoiding her small frame, ended up running into the wall. "Sorry about that," Kenji said as he brought up a hand to rub his head and she gave a nod, smiling kindly. "It's fine, are you okay? Did you hurt your shoulder?" It was in her personality to fuss if there was a probability of someone being hurt, though she hid the worry well. The smile that hadn't yet left her lips now widened as she watched the expression on Kenji's tanned face.

He appeared to be rather shocked at the sight but at the same time he sort of looked like he was zoning out, she could tell.

"You have a sweet laugh," he said lightly, his eyes showing his surprise at his own words. The girl's red orbs grew large and a light pink tint blossomed on her cheeks as she stared at Kenji. She was saved from responding as he hastily added, "Imagine, the dumbest boy in school dining with the smartest girl... Thank you Yoshino..Chan?"

His tone relayed his uncertainty of what he was to call her by; were they on a first name basis and what honourific should he use? The pink haired girl could practically see Kenji ask himself these questions and almost resign himself to what a regular girl would have done.

Freak out.. or something else along those lines..

But Yoshino was no ordinary girl and felt rather pleased that he felt 'chan' was an acceptable honourific to address her by. Thus she made her decision to say what she did.

"It's fine if you call me 'Yoshi' too, if you'd like?" Her eyes twinkled cheerfully as she finally moved from her awkward standing position and across the room to her regular seat. She sat on the cushion comfortably, kneeling with her bum on her feet for now. "Taiga calls me 'Yoshi-chan'," she mused aloud, outwardly appearing to think nothing of it. "But.." Her eyes grew serious as she regarded him, curiousity written deep within the tilt of her head and set of her jaw.

"What shall I call you, Hima-san?"

She seemed genuinely interested in what he would consider acceptable.

Yoshi-Chan

He replayed it in his head over and over. What would people say if he began calling her that in school, not that it really mattered to kenji but this girl had always been quite solitary. In fact all of the Sohma's tended to stick together, they were not exactly the friendliest often avoiding contact from anyone else. Yet somehow Kenji was not privileged enough to be calling one in endearment.

He liked it.

" Well, Yoshi-chan..... in England they don't use the Honorific, I have never really been one to care what I was called.. my Grandmother calls me Kento though...." He noticed he was rambling "Well anyway the point being you can call me whatever you like and I would be happy".

He could not understand why he had shared his Grannies nickname with Yoshino, he flight slightly dumb by mentioning it... plus he hadn't even explained why she used it. Rather than trying to explain himself he sat next to Yoshino ready to eat.

Yoshino Mei Sohma


No honourific? How odd..

Yoshino's ruby red eyes shone with curiousity and confusion as she looked at Kenji, shaking her head as she tried to work her head around that. Westerners seemed so different from how people behaved and lived in Japan. Even Chin, she knew, was similar in the sense of showing honour and manners. Perhaps the English showed their manners in different ways?

Either way, she was interested to find how unique their backgrounds were.

" 'Kento'?" She tilted her head and considered this, causing her hair to fall over her left shoulder despite the elastics holding the lovely white-pink locks back. "Or 'Kenji'..?" Hesitantly and slightly uncomfortable with the lack of honourifics, Yoshi added, " 'Kun'?"

She smiled cheerfully as she reached ahead of herself, using the chopsticks she'd grabbed a few moments ago to take certain foods she really liked.

"May I call you 'Kenji-kun' then?" Yoshino asked quietly before placing a bite of tamagoyaki in her mouth and chewing slowly.

He finished his food just as fast as she agreed to go out with him. Putting his plate in the sink. "Well than lets go" smirking some and headed to her door. He's hand sunk into his pockets before looking back to her. "Come on" his body brimmed with excitement but it was quick to fade when waiting on her. What would they do. He had never been alone with her this long. He kind of wished that rooster was along with them. Even the company of the cat would be preferred than them alone.

Looking to her for a moment. "Oh how about you're job. Get coffee then walk around" his hand slipped behind his head nervously. "Ah I guess you're there all the time why would you want to go on your day off huh. How about the mall? You like to shop right you're a chick"
