Fruits Basket: The Life of a Zodiac

Fruits Basket: The Life of a Zodiac

0 INK

For generations the Sohma family has been cursed by the vengeful spirits of the zodiac. Life in the zodiac is difficult, at best. And for most, love is out of the question. But no one can help it if they love someone… right?

1,408 readers have visited Fruits Basket: The Life of a Zodiac since Everscale created it.

Introduction

(Fruits Basket was created by FunImation http://www.funimation.com/fruitsbasket/fb_home.cfm )

For generations, the Sohma family has lived with a terrible and inescapable curse. They have struggled to survive under the oppressive rule of a bitter God and to deal with their own handicap in the modern world. They have struggled to obey the laws of their way of life, and to keep their secret hidden from the rest of the world.
Above all things, the one thing that God most hates is when a member of the Zodiac falls in love. He sees it as a way of stealing his precious subjects, from right under his nose. He will destroy anyone who tries to “take his zodiac away”.
But is it possible? Is it really possible to keep from loving someone?

~!~!~!~!~

In this roleplay, you will be your own members of the zodiac. None of the canon characters; Yuki, Kyo, Shigure, Ayame, etc.; will be included in this roleplay. Think of it as a story that happened before the actual Fruits Basket series.
Your characters should follow the character skeleton provided. If you want to reserve a character, you may message me or comment on the OOC thread. Let it be known that I will probably see my messages first…
Following are the roles and their status.

Teruhi lost his smile as Ai started to blame herself and said "No, it was my fault i was the one who suggested to go out for sushi, if it wasn't for my shouting they wouldn't have notice us, and when i left you i didn't have to go to the bathroom i just went to splash some water in face, i'm the one who should be sorry you got hurt because of me..". then as Ai wiped his tears and told him not to cry he decided to hug her and say "Don't worry i'll get strong enough to protect you then i'll never have a reason to cry again."

'Teruuuu," she said while chuckling and she rubbed her back. "My stomach is just a little bruised is all, and I was the one that suggested and insisted we go to that shop so it's my fault more than yours." she said as she smiled up at him and then she wanted to comfort him to tell him everything was alright so she did the one way she knew how, teasing him. "You so like me, I knew that play excuse was bogus, you liiiiikeee me you want to hoooold me and want to, "she paused and stopped her teasing and leaned up onto her tiptoes and gently kissed Teruhi on the lips.

Ai smiled at Teruhi, "Awww I worried you so much you were too panicked to think to grab them? I'm sorry," she apologized again and then kissed Teru's forehead, I gotta say that felt weird I haven't transformed since..... Well you know," she drifted off her sentence as she remember the last time she transformed which lead her to being hospitalized by Riko. She then lead him out of the appartment and locked it again, they made their way back to the stand and grabbed their things then headed back for the Sohma main estate. "I really am sorry for worrying you..." she said softly.

Teruhi smiled when Ai kissed him on the forehead before leading him out her apartment. after reaching the bar and grabbing their stuff Ai once again apologized for worrying him and he responded by kissing her on the cheek and saying " I care about you and 'Care is the actualization of love assumed.' Doc Childre" . Teruhi decided to walk his bike with Ai that way they could be alone together just a little bit longer but when they reached the front gate of the main house Teruhi got a sad look on his face and said "We have to act like nothing happened, at least while we're here at the main house, we can't let Riko with how he is we both know it will end badly."

Ai had enjoied the walk back but the bliss was shortlived as they made it to the gates and Teruhi brought up how they had to act like nothing happened. She nodded and said I know..." she was a little sad outwardly but then she pepped up and said, "But that means I can still be affectionate to youuuuu!" she said as she pinched his cheek before walking into the main house. The very front of the main estate always seemed like a ghost town to Ai, for all the peole she knew were living there she didn't really see many very often, it was even worse around the holiday.

Ai smiled and sighed, "Finneeeeeee," she said as she let go of his cheek. She stretched and walked into the housing area of the estate that was specifically for the Zodiac. "We should find the others after we put your bike back," she said as they headed to Teruhi's home. She said as she looked around she saw Riko, Takumi, Jasper, and Kauta. She wondered why Kauta was still persuing Riko but she kept to herself and kept walking with Teruhi hoping the wouldn't notice the two walking.

Teruhi nods in agreement with Ai when she said that they should gather the other after putting up his bike. as they passed Riko, Takumi, Jasper, and Kauta and sense Riko was pissed and looking to make an example out of someone, and not wanting to see Ai get hurt he grabs hand and starts to walk faster try to get them out of this area as soon as plausible. now next to Teruhi's place he puts his bike on its kickstand looks around to make sure Riko , or anyone who would tell him, wasn't watching, gives Ai a hug and kisses her on the forehead as he says "I'll see you tonight."

"I feel fine, Takumi," Riko answered shortly, casting his glare around at those who had gathered about him. There were so many people here, all of the sudden.
It brought a strange feeling.
Claustrophobia?
Yes. That might be it.
"Come see me when you're done here, Takumi," He commanded.
And without another word, the God turned and strode down the hall in the way he had been going to begin with.

Jasper's nerves started to ease a little more once Riko was out of sight. She raised both of her hands to her forehead, and started to rub her temples. She absolutely hated Riko, and with a passion. Without thinking of the consequences, Jasper blurted out a little, "Why's he so... Riko-y?" Then turned her back on the other zodiacs. "I can't stand it here, I may be back for the festival thing going on... Don't count on it."

(-Damn, some booze would be nice right now, my head's pounding through my skull... I think I may pass out...-)
