Danger Level: Most of the time, Riye is a 3-4 in danger level since one of his hobbies involves playing with fire and swinging it around. If angered or someone has one of his family or loved one in danger, he has been known to live up to his Role as the dragon; capping off at an 8 or so.

Dominant Emotion: Tired contentedness

Personality: Riye that can be described as "A dragon who is bored of his horde". While Riye is fairly well off and financially secure in his job, he has a tendency to delve deeply into his other hobbies and interests. Though he does manage to keep his two lives apart. On the job, Riye is very serious and very stern with his underlings and is never afraid to throw someone under the bus if it meant that hell get the promotion. Out of work and with friends, he is a lively and very active. He loves to play and find the fun in everything. Taking up hobbies that interest him and leaving those that don't in the dust. He does have his down days. Day where he doesn't want to leave his house or do anything with anyone. Those days tend to last about a week or so. And due to his insomnia, it becomes very obvious that he hasn't slept in days by him becoming irritable, inattentive and sometime just plain strange.

There are days where he also seems to be out of it, high or just plain tired though this is after a convention binge and neglecting to sleep for whatever reason.

Likes: Cosplay|| Video games || Fanatsy novels || Poi spinning || Being left alone at work || Going to the aquarium

Dislikes: ||Turning into his 'dragon' form|| burning himself || his boss || overzealous girls || Random hugs from behind || Erasing people's memories

Talents: Poi spinning- The one activity that not only has been a consistent source of amusement for others and himself, he's gotten so good at it that it had become meditative for him.


Flaws: Insominac - Riye has a case of chronic insomnia and often doesn't get either enough sleep or any sleep at all. Although not many people know this and has used it to get ahead at work; this has caused him to crash in the worst possible place and become irritable or weird as hell.

Lightweight drinker - When Riye drinks, in normally takes him a 2 full steins of beer to make him loopy, a third to make him gone and a fourth to land him on the table knocked out. Even less if he hasn't slept in a week or two.



Weaknesses: Sleeping remities - even if they don't work, he feels compelled to try another just to get a taste of dream land.
Cats - It's not that he doesn't like them, but that he can't just stand by and watch one mew at him in loneliness and not take it home or at least find a home for it.
Occasional inattentiveness - This has been drilled into the ground but because he doesn't sleep like he should, he sometimes looks like he's spacing out.


Hobbies: Costume making, Poi spinning






Image






Typical Attire: While working he wears the typical suit and tie with a dragon broach. Off the clock and among friends and family, a simple tee-shirt and and jeans are normally what he wears.

Keepsakes: -This necklace that is displayed on his book case from an old friend that had long since passed away.
-
History: {Their lives up until the current time}

Other: -Has never had a girlfriend and is nearly completely innocent of perverse things. (have as much fun with this as you can! XD)
-If you can get him to sleep, he will love you forever.

5 days.

It had been five long days since he had any restful sleep. Or for that matter, sleep at all. Work had been a pain for the past few days and the rings around his eyes showed it. Not that he wasn't used to it at all, This had been an on going thing for a while now, only very rarely getting the sleep he needed or just being knocked out cold from something. Either way, it didn't help that he had been lying in bed for the entire night with no luck.

Light streamed in from the blinds, letting him know that daylight had started, making him sigh and sit up and over the side of his bed. The dragon shook his head, feeling like he had just been transported to another world. He looked up at his dresser as one of his cats lay there watching him. "I'm Okay Merda. I just need to get out for a bit." he said as he started getting dressed and petting said cat. Three other felines slept in different areas around his room, sleeping the morning away as he left the room and soon left the house.

As soon as he even walked out from his door, the searing pain of bright light on his eyes made him reel back and cover his eyes as he started walking down to the local park. "Yep! I'm a vampire today..." he muttered to himself as he used his arm to cover his eyes and continued walking. As he looked as the ground, trying to keep himself from being blinded any further, he noticed small creatures, purple rats and ran along side him, making him shiver a bit. He had become used to this. Knowing that they were not real, but his lack of sleep often caused the appearance of these creatures and the bags under his eyes often confirmed it.

Riye soon arrived at the park, though it was somewhat unusual to see him here in the middle of the day as his poi spinning was better seen at night. However, he felt the need to at least leave the house for once during the day on his day off. He plopped himself on a near by bench, watching some of the children play and letting himself relax a bit. Seeing the familiar faces of him family gave him some comfort as he started to space out a bit and stare off into the distance.

So, I'm going to go ahead and throw some of the actual manga into this since this certain event has yet to happen in this RP or in the other Fruits Basket RP that I'm in with Nasia.

"All beauty is within the eye of the beholder."





It hadn't been long since Aura had dropped down into her spot, readied her pants, and begun to her art, that she began to hear the close cries of small children. The squeals were not alarming, for the warmth held within them was one that betrayed the inner joy of the person whose lips they escaped from.

Laughter. Joy. Emotions. These were things that only the most expert and advanced of artists could achieve showing in their art. Whether it be in paints, sculpting, or some other form of art, it took quite a bit of skill to show any type of emotion, no matter what it was. In fact, some artists could only achieve such skill if they experienced the emotions themselves - as they were working.

That is not the case with all artists, however. Those who held true passion for their form of expression could truly encompass any type of art that they wished to show - whether it be emotions or life, which was another key and difficult component to add to any work.

"Riooooo~~!! Whacha doin?"

Aura would have jumped, seeing as she was lost so deeply in thought that she hadn't heard her monkey - and she used that poth rhetorically and literally - of a brother arrived, but she wasn't one to be easily startled. Surprisingly, seeing as her animal counterpart spooked fairly easily. Stilling her hand mid-air, she glanced over her shoulder at Hiroki, before turning back to her easily and setting her hand into movement once more.

"Hello, Hiroki," she said, her voice betraying her slight-distraction.

It wasn't that she didn't want to speak to her brother - in fact, she adored the man that stood beside her. She had for years, and had always admired him for his care-free persona and the way that he held himself. He was the epitome of free - something that she, as a horse, had always longed to be.

"What brings you-"

"I'll be right back, sis!" He barged into the middle of her question. Not that she was really surprised - he wasn't one for sitting still for very long, let alone long enough to listen to someone speaking to him. Within an instant he was gone, leaving her alone once again with her though.

Not that she was left alone for very long, or long enough to regain whatever thought-process she had lost when her brother had arrived. For, only a minute later, he was back, his voice shrieking and his arms flailing about, as if there were some sort of mass-fire occurring and the only way to gain attention for it was to cause a debacle.

"There's trouble, sis!! Trooooubleeeee!!!!!"

Stifling a sigh, Aura rose, setting her pants on her stool and laying the easel on its' back, so as to avoid anyone knocking it over and ruining her nearly-completed painting. A small towel dotted with dry paint was drawn from her back pocket, and she easily wiped her hands on it. Without realizing, she had gotten a smear of purple across her cheek. Not that she would have really cared if she had known, to be honest.

Easily pulling the ponytail form her hair, the long, raven-colored mass fell to her waist in a thick, straight waterfall.

"There's no reason to shout and scream, Hiroki. I'm sure the trouble isn't as bad as you think," she said soothingly, obviously attempting to reassure him.

Crossing the small distance between the pond and the area where the squeals of the children could still be heard, yet there weren't as many and it was further apart in shouts, she paused beside a tree on the edge of the play area. Benches were scattered throughout it, a place where parents could relax while keeping an eye on their children. A small fountain stood at the beginning of the park, and the playground itself of large and castle-like.

Her eyes immediately fell on the people who were far too large to be considered children.

One was a tall, purple-haired man whom she recognized from seeing on the college campus. She faintly remembered a name that began with the letter 'S' - Sayu or Saka or something along those lines. Despite the fact that she inwardly knew that he was handsome - she had heard many of the females on campus gushing about it, and knew that he received a mass of gifts from said girls on almost a daily basis - she felt no initial attraction towards him, which also helped to explain why she couldn't even remember his name. He had made no lasting impression on her, and ran with an entirely different crowd. While he gravitated towards the jocks of the basketball team, she tended to stick with her small amount of friends in the Arts programs.

The next person she noticed was the 'prince' of the college, Rin. The Rat to the Sohma family, the woman had no inkling for the fact that it could be considered odd by some people to dress as a man when you were, indeed, a female. She obviously hadn't a care for it, and undoubtedly thought that a person who be recognized for who they were, not what gender they had been given by whatever force lay out there.

Immediately after her was Aki, or the Cat. Notorious for being a bit of, well, a bitch, Aki wasn't well-liked by anyone - Sohma or otherwise. Personally, Aura didn't really care about the legend of their family. She didn't judge any one of the Zodiac members for the animal that they were given, but instead judged them upon who they made themselves out to be. While Aki obviously acted the way she did because she was a leper in the family, that was no excuse for her to treat innocent bystanders with malevolence.

The final person in the mix was Riye, the lawyer and dragon of the family. She used dragon loosely, seeing as he was instead a dragon of water - that is, a seahorse. He could be intimidating to anyone who looked at him, what with his dashing good looks and his holier-than-thou attitude, but to her, he was simply another family member. That, and he and Hiroki were very close, so he was around their house almost constantly. She also assisted him quite a bit in his little 'fantasies', often designing and creating his outfits for his cosplaying adventures. They had become closer over the years, and due to Aura's lack of friends, she considered him to be one of her better ones.

Tucking the towel into her back pocket, she approached the crowd, immediately heading in the direction of the Cat and the Rat, the two in question already showing the beginnings of a battle that would undoubtedly play out badly in the end.

"I don't believe that this is the place for you two to come to quarrel at. Nor is it really the time, and you both know that." She spoke quietly as she approached, and yet her voice carried through the wind, easily reaching the ears of the two intended parties.

Patting the head of a small child who stood off to the side, his eyes wide and staring, she reached the two young women and pushed herself between them.

"I don't know how this argument started, or even if it has really begun, but either way I'm not going to allow it to continue or grow. If you have a problem with each other, take it back to the Sohma estate and run it out. The affairs of the Sohmas belongs behind closed doors, not in the middle of the public, where all eyes can see," she said, her intense eyes looking between the two, both hands held up to spread them apart from each other.

"Now, I would like to return to my painting - preferably in peace. If you two wouldn't mind, either continue about your day or go somewhere that no one can see you and fight it out. Physically or verbally, it doesn't matter to me, because that's your choice. But no one cares to see a fight - especially these children. Isn't that right, Rin?" she asked, tilting her head so that her face was a bit more towards the Rat, her eyebrow slightly quirked.

Straightening once more, she stepped back, swiping the back of one hand across her cheek and further smearing the purple paint that was slowly drying there.

"Now, if you don't mind, I'll be returning to the pond - in quiet," she added, her voice holding a bit of a threat that showed that if it was anything other than quiet, she wouldn't be very happy.

Turning around with her eyes closed, she inhaled deeply and stepped away.

And directly into the little boy who's head she had patted, who obviously had gotten closer to the trio of young women as she spoke.

Immediately her eyes flashed open, a large smoke engulfing the two of them. Before she had fulling registered what had occurred, her clothes were gone and her body was reshaping itself within the smoke, changing her until the only thing that remained was a rather large horse - something very difficult to miss in the middle of a park that lay in the middle of the suburbs of a city.

Stumbling on all fours, she snorted, air puffing out from her nostrils. Having rarely been changed over the years due to her being slightly-alienated from society, she wasn't quite used to supporting the weight of a four- to five-hundred pound body. She stumbled once more, dropping to her knees, and a soft sound escaped her snout. Her eyes blinked and looked back and forth wildly.

In an instant she was back up, her clothes abandoned as she darted from the park and back towards the pond. A whiny escaped her lips, and she stopped only once she had reached her paints. Glancing briefly down at them, she shook her large head and took off, once again stopping, but only as soon as she was hidden within a mass of trees.

Dropping to her knees once more, she lowered her head and snorted.

Son of a bitch ...

It didn't take long for 'big brother' to show up, Rin was quick to rush to the crying girl's side to comfort her and pick her up off the ground. A small sigh escaped Aki's lips in relief that the high-pitched and annoying wailing of the little girl was gone. She was however quite surprised as Rin prompted the girl to apologize, which she of course refused to do. The kind treatment from the rat was rather unexpected but short lived as Rin finally looked up to see who it was she was actually speaking to. Aki merely raised a brow at Rin as she recoiled away still looking irritated as she crossed her arms, book still held in hand.

"Tch, one second you're about to apologize for the brat and now you're making wild accusations, sure changed your tune awful quick. You could at least -try- to hide your bias." She stole a glance around the park as she shook her head, things were getting a little out of hand, apparently the park contained some kind of Sohma magnet. Regardless, this whole ordeal had put a lot of attention on to Aki, which was something she rather disliked. She wanted to leave, but she wouldn't feel right doing so before getting in her last word to Rin. "Why would I waste my time going after some random children? That girl simply wasn't looking where she was going and ran into me, end of story. If you really feel compelled to try and paint me as some monster who attacks kids than I think -you're- the one whose got a problem, not me."

She exhaled a deep breath and closed her eyes for a moment, trying to hold back her emotions for the time being and ease some of her discomfort at being the center of attention. With her piece said she adjusted her bag and dropped her book inside it, looking about ready to leave before yet another Sohma decided to make her presence known. It was the ever so elegant horse who began to spout some nonsense about time and place and peace and quiet. Aki couldn't help but feel irritated at how full of herself she seemed, Aki would've been gone already if she hadn't interrupted, and what's more if she wanted peace and quiet she should've kept her nose out of something that was none of her business to begin with.

Aki had half a mind to say something back to her but her desire to just leave combined with what happened next rendered that rather pointless. In a puff of smoke the horse turned into well... A horse. Aki couldn't help but laugh and shake her head at that, served her right. But, this was quite the perfect opportunity. Taking advantage of this rather sudden distraction Aki slipped away from the group and walked hastily down the sidewalk away from the park. She wasn't in the mood to read anymore and didn't want to end up bumping into any more snot-nosed kids so she left her book tucked away in her bag and continued on her way to her original destination, the convenience store.

"Let's go dancing! We can dance outside and in the rain! Oh, the rain! I love the rain! The rain smells good! Oh, so do flowers! Flowers are pretty! Flowers grow under the sun! And the sun is bright! And-No, I'm not talking too much, you big meanie!"





"Alana, I'm sure there's nothing for you to be worried about. Kaori's been doing a lot better - her doctor even said so himself."

Alana nibbled on her thumbnail, staring out the window of the classroom. She had offered to stay a little late after school to help their librarian organize the books in library, seeing as she really had nothing better to do and she enjoyed helping others, and in the process of her offer, had been joined by one of her best friends, Tamaki. The striking young man was basically Alana in male form, seeing as he matched her feature-by-feature, was strikingly handsome, and just as equally popular as she. They had been friends since they were five, having happened upon each other at the park. Tamaki had been there with his family and had seen her crying and, being the kind boy that he was, offered to help her find her parents. Her little sister had been two at the time and Alana had been told to play only where she could see her parents, but had somehow found herself unable to find her mother and father. He had immediately told his parents, the police were called, and they had luckily found her family.

The two had been inseparable since. Many of their classmates had some dream of them becoming a couple - they had even come up with a list of pet-names for their pairing - but they both knew that wouldn't happen. They were more so siblings than a couple, and due to the curse, she could never be with him anyway.

Shaking her head, Alana stifled a sigh. "I don't know. She just won't talk to me, Tamaki. I don't know what to do anymore. You know me - I'm as happy as any person could ever be! But my sister isn't, and that really bothers me. I don't know how to help her."

Brushing his blonde hair back from his face, he plucked up a stack of books and slid them onto a shelf. Watching him, Alana crossed her arms, propping them on her knees and looking over at him.

"I don't really know what to say, Princess," he said, using the nickname that the school had long-ago given her. "The only advice I can think of giving you is for you to let her know that you're there for her no matter what, and that if she ever needs anything, she just needs to say the word."

Sighing, she leaned back, her hands bracing behind her to support her weight. She stared at the ceiling, her blue eyes contemplative.

"I just wish that she'd talk to me," she muttered.

~'.'~'.'~'.'~Small Time Skip~'.'~'.'~'.'~'.'~


"Are you sure you don't need me to walk you home? You and I both know that that fan club of yours can get a bit out of hand at times."

Adjusting the weight of her bag in her hands, she beamed up at Tamaki. "Of course I'm sure! I'm perfectly capable of walking a few blocks. I just need to stop by the tarot shop and the market, and then I'll be home."

Tamaki shifted nervously, his eyes looking up and down the street before fixating on hers again. "Are you positive?"

Smiling at him once more, Alana laughed. "Of course! I'll text you when I get home so that you know I made it alright, okay?"

He seemed about to argue with her some more, but after a moment of thought, he let out a breath of surrender. "Alright, but if I don't hear for you within an hour and a half, I'm coming over to check on you."

Nodding, Alan went on her toes, pecking a friendly kiss on his cheek. With that, she spun away, her skirt twirling in the wind that the movement picked up, and her hair flying over her shoulder. "I'll see you tomorrow, Tamo!" she called cheerily over her shoulder at him.

She had only just turned the corner by the school when the sound of the popular teen band, [url]Babymetal[/url], rang in the quiet afternoon air. Their song Megitsune was by far her favorite, and it resonated around her as she dug through her bag's pockets until she found her phone.

Flipping it open, a picture of her sister popped it, along with the little image of an envelope which told her that Kaori had sent her a message. Opening it, she quickly scanned the words on the screen.

Hey. No matter what mom says, I'll be fine home alone.


Rolling her eyes, she quickly sent a message back to the younger girl.

You know as well as I do that I don't really listen to mother all too much when it involves you. I'm staying home because I want to. I already planned to have a movie night with you and Tamaki, so there will be no arguing on the matter. Maybe you can invite one of your friends!


Quickly sending the message, she returned the phone to her bag and continued down the street.

She was only a few blocks from the tarot shop when she stopped, the sounds of shouting emerging from a nearby park. Her interest piqued, she approached the park and peaked inside.

Children were scattered, as per the norm for a park, of course, and the other inhabitants were none other than her lovely family and a man who couldn't be but a few years her elder. Directly beside Aki and Rin were a scatter of clothes, which were right next to what could only be described as hoof prints, and if she had to make an assumption based on the fact that the prints were hooves and the clothes feminine, it would be that the owner of both had been none other than her beloved cousin, Aurionzi. It was obvious what had happened, and the arguing that had apparently just dissolved still hung in the air as unresolved tension.

I suppose it's time for me to work my magic.

Breaking into a large smile, Alanavee danced into the park, crying, "Cousins!" as she did so. Her voice carried through the air, holding a lovely, mesmerizing musical lilt to it. She danced over to Rin and threw her arms around the elder girl, bursting into laughter. "You'll never guess what happened today! At lunch, some of the boys in my fan club gave me the prettiest painting! I'd show you it, but I left it in my locker. I thought it was much more suited for school than for my house, don't you agree?" she asked.

Suddenly dropping her arms, she twirled over to Aki, clasping her hands behind her back and leaning forward to peak up at the girl. "Oh! Aki! Did you see the painting they gave me? I'm sure you did! You were right there when they gave it to me. I know! Why don't I ask them to paint you one? I'm sure they'd love to!" she beamed, obviously proud of her outrageous idea.

Her face suddenly lit up and she spun, twirling over to the man that she hadn't recognized. His purple hair shone brightly in the sunlight, and she caught the small hint of lavender wafting off of him. Her jaw dropped and her eyes widened. "Gee, mister! You sure are tall! And you smell awesome!" she giggled, sticking her tongue out a bit at him. "I really like the color purple, so your hair is just a cool! Is it naturally like that? Man, if I had that hair color I'd probably never stop looking in a mirror! It'd make me super unique and then maybe I'd be as good-looking as you are!"

Dancing away from him, she twirled over to Riye, dropping onto his lap and completely oblivious to the sort-of nap he had been taking. "Rei-senpai! Guess what I did today! Tamaki and I stayed after school to help the librarian sort the books! It was so much fun! Oh! Hey! Have you asked Aura out yet? It's about time you make a move!" she teased.

Jumping up from him, she twirled to Rin once more, obviously having far too much energy for her own good. "Rin! Have you seen KAY-ORRR-EEE? I've been trying to find out why she won't hang out with me, but she won't tell! Am I annoying? Is that it?" Tears appeared in Alana's bright blue eyes, her lower lip immediately beginning to tremble at the thought.

"Is that it? I'm I too annoying for my baby sister to like me? If I am, tell me the truth! I'm a meanie too, aren't I?" she sniffled, the beginnings of a full-on sob-fest threatening.

“Really?”

The maroon-haired boy replied and started reverting from being anxious into his cheerful ol’ self. Really, it was obvious on how relieved Hiroki was just from being comforted by Rio, specifically by her soothing voice. It was one of the things that Hiroki wished he’d get to hear more often, but unfortunately, all he gets is a stern, scolding tone which intensifies whenever he does something wrong. It’s such a shame, really. If only Rio didn’t look intimidating from a stranger’s view as well as have a sharp tongue, she would definitely have a lot of friends.

However, Rio never really looked intimidating in Hiroki’s view. If she was, why would she even bother marching off to the park at Hiroki’s call? Why would she even bother consoling the monkey? Simple, it’s because she isn’t intimidating, she’s extremely kind! At the thought of this, Hiroki cracked up a smile and followed his sister closely from behind, skipping cheerfully as he did so. He noticed the birds which attacked him from earlier were now eating worms with their offspring. As Hiroki watched them, he realized the reason of the birds’ assault. Quickly, Hiroki stopped walking and bowed his head, silently apologizing to the flock of bluebirds.

Once he was done, Hiroki quickly ran and noticed that Rio had seem to went of without him and after a few seconds, Hiroki was able to catch up with her. “Geez, you sure walk fast, sis!” Hiroki whined, scratching the back of his head. Did she even notice that he was gone when they were walking? Perhaps not. That was when Hiroki began to notice the people and the dreadful atmosphere around the park which was caused by Rin and Aki who seemed to have started to have an argument. However, instead of breaking those two off, Hiroki gleefully approached someone else. It was none other than his cousin and close friend, Riye.

“Riri!!”, the monkey ran towards the dragon’s direction and sat beside him. “What brings you here?” Hiroki asked, turning his head towards the said man only to receive disappointment when he saw Riye dozing off. As a result, the exasperated monkey dug for a permanent marker in his bag and began scribbling on his cousin’s face. He childishly filled Riye’s face with notable doodles of mustaches, snots, whiskers, and a drawing of a creepy set eyes on his eyelids.

Hiroki grinned mischievously when he finished, but his attention was quickly snatched by Rio who was currently breaking up the fight between Rin and Aki. Leaving the dragon behind, Hiroki walked towards their direction, however he picked up the pace when he saw that a little boy behind Rio was about to bump against her.

Anxiously, Hiroki shouted, “Rioo! Look out!” but, by the time he finished his words, a large amount of smoke were already scattered throughout the area. At this time, Hiroki heard a laugh which clearly hinted an insult as its message. This clearly aggravated the monkey and even if he did not know where it came from, that tone was clearly a dead giveaway. It was Aki. "Oi!", Hiroki called out to the cat as he marched towards her direction. It was evident on how offended Hiroki was for his sister. Even if she is younger than him, she needs to get a piece of his mind. However, Hiroki halted his steps when he heard his sister who was currently a horse, galloping away to the park.

"Tch." Hiroki grunted under his breath. After picking up Rio's clothes in which she left behind, Hiroki gave a dreadful glare at Aki before running after his sister.

I'll let her off this time.

Image"Tch, one second you're about to apologize for the brat and now you're making wild accusations, sure changed your tune awful quick. You could at least -try- to hide your bias." Rin clenched her teeth and balled up her fists. Of course, she had made herself look like an idiot once again due to her lack of filter when the Cat was near. "Why would I waste my time going after some random children? That girl simply wasn't looking where she was going and ran into me, end of story. If you really feel compelled to try and paint me as some monster who attacks kids than I think -you're- the one whose got a problem, not me."

That was when Aura appeared in front of the two girls, saying that if they really wanted to fight, it could go down somewhere else. But Rin didn't want to fight, she wanted to be out of the crowd that was slowly forming. It was getting dangerous, anyone of them could transform ...

As if on cue, Aura backed up into a smaller boy only to disappear in a poof of smoke. Rin remembered quickly what animal she was, yanking the boy out of harms way. The Rat heard a chuckle escape the Cat, but when she turned, Aki had already parted. A snarl ripped from Rin's throat. "Yeah! Walk away! That's all you ever do when someone needs your help!" Rin scanned the park, looking for anything she could use to distract the kids. That's when she spotted Riye.

"Cousins!" The random shout jolted Rin from her angered state, only to have a pair of arms be thrown around her. From Rin's peripheral, she could identify the blonde girl to be Alanavee. "You'll never guess what happened today! At lunch, some of the boys in my fan club gave me the prettiest painting! I'd show you it, but I left it in my locker. I thought it was much more suited for school than for my house, don't you agree?" she asked.

"Yes, now they will see how much you treasure it instead of having to wonder what you did with it." Lana danced her way from cousin to cousin before twirling back to Rin.

"Rin! Have you seen KAY-ORRR-EEE? I've been trying to find out why she won't hang out with me, but she won't tell! Am I annoying? Is that it?" Tears appeared in Alana's bright blue eyes, her lower lip immediately beginning to tremble at the thought. "Is that it? I'm I too annoying for my baby sister to like me? If I am, tell me the truth! I'm a meanie too, aren't I?" she sniffled, the beginnings of a full-on sob-fest threatening. Rin's breath caught in her throat, she had prayed for a distraction, but she didn't know this is what the messenger would send.

"No no no! You aren't annoying or mean. Maybe she is just scared to talk to you? Or can't find the words to say?" Rin hugged her younger cousin and smiled her normal, bright smile. "But you are such an awesome sister that she will come around eventually, all you have to do is continue to be there for her." Rin had never known what actually happened to Kaori, just that she stopped going to school for a while and wouldn't talk to anyone. Back on track, Rin gave Alana a squeeze then grabbed Riye's hand, pulling him in front of the kids. "Alright guys listen up! This is my cousin Riye and he's gonna show you a trick, okay? He's a magician!" The children cheered and watched the tall man with excitement in their eyes. Rin herself leaned in close to her cousin, whispering to where he was the only one that would hear.

"You know what you need to do .... just in case someone actually remembers something."
