Juliet Satou

Juliet smiled. "That's so cool~" She marveled at Nobuo. "My own family is well... Mostly gone so I havent had any chances at that kind of thing... But believe or not spending your days making ramen helps build up guitar skills." She grinned. After a few seconds of silence Juliet managed to play the tune Nobuo played. She smirked and looked at him daringly. "Mainly in the ways of memorization and concentration... Cause water boils over and people hate repeating orders." She gave a silly crooked smile and played the tune again as if asking Nobuo to join her.

Gavin nodded slowly, trying to think of an easy song that Nami would be able to play.
It would have been easier to think if Kageru wasn't watching him. Gavin glanced at him and wasn't sure if he liked the other boys expression or not, was it friendly or hostile?
Gavin looked away, he wouldn't mind having an enemy or two, but a famous person as one wasn't what he was aiming for.
Maybe someone with a little less power and didn't have a bunch of fans willing to back them up.
Slightly frowning, Gavin decided it was best to be on OK terms with Kageru... the last thing he wanted was to be hated by a guy who was known throughout the country.

"You know Heart and Soul though, right?" Gavin asked, turning his attention back to Nami. "My mom used to play it to my dad when I was younger..." He trailed off, staring blankly at the white and black keys in front of him. He could still see his mom sitting in the living room with a smile on her face as she played the piece, and his dad actually looking happy without Anka beside him.
He wouldn't admit that he missed those days.
Snapping out of thought, Gavin began to play the simplest variation of the piece that he knew; repeating four chords while waiting for Nami to play the second part.

Ai Hinata

As soon as Nami mentioned knowing where the music room was, Ai was off. She was in the mood to play on her Kitara and she figured that even with their likely extensive music room, the company wouldn't have one. Hurrying to her room, she grabbed her Misa Kitara Digital Guitar and was back in the music room just in time to hear Juliet and and Nobuo playing a tune together as well as Nami and Gavin chatting at the piano. Glancing around the room, she spotted Kageru standing by himself off to the side.

"Hey! Kage, grab an instrument and let's show the rookies how it's done!" Ai grinned brightly as she jogged over to an amp to plug in her guitar. Taking a seat on top of the speaker, she powered on the guitar and tapped through to the configurations screen to make sure it was on the settings she wanted.
"Oh, Nezu, you can join in too, I suppose."

Nezuko Sejirou

Nezuko followed the others to the music room, partially surprised that the twins already knew their way around so well; they hadn't gotten to the house that much earlier than him, after all. Standing by the doorway, he raised an eyebrow as Ai scurried in with her fancy synthesizer guitar and made herself right at home on top of one of the amps. Making his way over to her, he took a seat beside her on the amp and picked up the closest guitar to him; a black hollow-body. Playing a few notes, he tuned accordingly and plugged it into a speaker.

Nami Satou

Nami looked over at Kageru when she noticed Gavin looking her brothers way. The siblings shared a silent momment and finally Kageru softened. Nami blinked and looked back to find Gavin playing... Though he stopped. She smiled and played the next part before handing it back to Gavin. "Your quite good at this..." She smiled gently. "Also... Please do not worry about Kageru... He is protective but... Kind." Nami spoke softly and she could not be sure if the boy next to her heard her but she hopped that he did.

Kageru Satou

Kagery watched his sister closely when he became distracted by Ai. He followed the girl and smirked. "You never cease to impress me so of course I shall join." He smiled and left the room before returning with his own guitar. He soon had it set up the way he wanted and watched Ai do her thing.

Nobuo blushed a little when Juliet complimented him. His smile faltered as he heard most of her family was dead. Watching her play what he did cheered him up a little. "You learned that way? Nice."

Of course, he played it again with Juliet as she did so. This was the first time he actually played guitar next to a girl, which got him a little excited, for some odd reason. Why was he happier, all of a sudden, around Juliet, whom he barely knew? Either way, it was a great feeling. Nobuo wondered what could happen after training. He hoped he would actually have chance at perofrming with her, whatever the reason was.

As he played the tune, Nobuo saw Ai, Kageru, and Nezuko getting ready to play something. He was actually excited to see what the more experienced performers could do. Of course, he and Juliet were not too bad, either.

Juliet Satou

Juliet grinned. "So how exactly does the whole southern music on guitar work?" She blinked. "I mean to get it do you have to do anything different with your finger placement?" Juliet blinked and looked down at the guitar she was holding. Is there was a different way to use it that made the music southern aside just the tune itself... Then Juliet was un-sure how that would even work... Though when Nobuo played he played it the same way... Or maybe he was adapting it? She blushed and looked up at the silent boy. "I-I feel so un-sure of what I'm doing... Going into another style seems so foreign but so interesting~"

Gavin played the rest of the piece as he watched the others settle around the room; Juliet and Nobuo -aka Book Guy- were focused on the guitars and seemed to be enjoying themselves, Kageru had left the room and had Gavin thinking he was leaving for good, but then returned shortly with his own guitar and headed near Ai and Nezuko who looked like they were planning something.
Nami said something to him before that, but all Gavin heard was a compliment and something about Kageru and not worrying about him. Gavin, turning to look at her, had on his face what was his ' I know I'm brilliant, but thanks for the compliment.' smile.

"I am pretty good, huh?" He said, then his smile dimmed a bit, "That was easy though... La campanella would have been better." Gavin took his hands off the piano, a bit frustrated with himself for not playing that instead.

Nami Satou

Nami blinked when she saw how frustrated Gavin got with himself. She smiled gently. "If one cannot play something easy with absolute perfection how can they ever expect to be any good at doing something hard..." Her voice was soft. "And needless to say you played it wonderfully... Which in my book... Means you are skilled enough to play something like La campanella." Nami's voice was soft as ever as she turned back to the piano. "Another way to see if your good... Is simply making something up on the spot." A slight smirk crossed her features but it soon vanished. Setting her hands on the keys Nami allowed them to drift over the cold keys pressing lightly every once and awhile and moving up and down with skill, the result was a gentle but oddly beautiful tune. She looked up at Gavin her bright eyes happy. "Continue?" The question was barely even posed it was more of a vague suggestion that Nami did not mind having answered or ignored.

Gavin forced a smile as a return to Nami's words. The compliment had lifted his spirits a bit, but Gavin, very oddly for him, didn't feel entirely cheered up.
"Another way to see if your good... Is simply making something up on the spot." Nami continued, beginning to play the piano again. Gavin listened as she did so, and he actually felt even worse as she continued on with gently pressing the keys and making such a nice sounding tune.
His talent was the piano, and Gavin felt annoyed that someone else seemed to have it as a talent as well.
"Continue?" Nami asked, her eyes bright with happiness only irritating Gavin more.
Without replying or even saying anything at all, he stood up from the bench and left the music room, not trusting himself to not make a huge, humiliating scene of anger.

Nami Satou

Nami sighed when Gavin left. She was use to this kind of thing happened though each person had there own reason. Kageru looked over and arched his eyebrow. Nami smiled shyly in reply to the worried look in his eyes. Opting to try and fix whatever she caused she stood and followed Gavin. She caught up quickly and tapped him on the shoulder. "Sorry... Sorry if I did something wrong..." She bowed her head. "I'm no good with people..."

Gavin walked down the hall with his hands shoved in his pockets. He was glaring at nothing in particular, just whatever happened to be in front of him.
I'm such an idiot. He thought, Maybe I should just go back now and apologize... Before he got the chance to make up his mind, Gavin's cell phone began buzzing and he looked to see who was texting him.
His dad.
Gavin sighed as he read the text, it was just three short letters that made up 'Where are you?' and that was all Gavin read before he put his phone away.

He was still debating with himself on whether he should go back to the music room or not, but still before he could decide, a hand tapped his shoulder and he turned to see Nami, an apologetic look on her face.
"Sorry," She said, "Sorry if I did something wrong...I'm no good with people..." Nami added a slight bow to go along with her apology.

Gavin gave her a confused look, "You didn't do anything wrong," He said, then pointed to the kitchen, "I was just gonna' get a snack." While saying this, Gavin hoped that Nami would believe his lies as easily as his dad did.
Lying was a lot more easier to do than giving a real explanation.
"By the way, do you know if there's any Oreo's around here... as in, in the house? I guess I can go out and buy some if not..." Gavin asked, saying the last part mostly to himself.

Nami tilted her head. "Oreos..." She smiled. "Probably... They always stock the kitchen full of things... But... Make a run... You mean..." Nami tilted her head. "You have your own vehicle? You drive yourself?" The shock was very obvious in her voice. "Oh sorry... It's... Just." She looked away. "My mom drive's us everywhere..." She let out a more then disappointed sigh finally remembering just how suffocatingly sheltered she was. "Ah... Anyway..." She gently motioned for them to head to the kitchen to search for the oreos.

(OOC: Just got my laptop back yesterday... I didn't have it for a week)

"You have your own vehicle? You drive yourself?" Nami asked, Gavin noticed that she looked shocked. She quickly apologized and looked away, saying that her mom drives her everywhere.
Gavin paused, wondering if his own mother would have done the same for him, he decided that even if she was alive she probably wouldn't; Driving him to a hundred different places in one day might be exhausting.
Gavin whistled, nodding his head, "Lucky you, having a chauffeur!" He said, a smile appearing on his face, "Unfortunately I'm not as lucky. I take the bus or just walk, no cars or mom-chauffeurs for me."

When they entered the kitchen, Gavin began looking through the cupboards for the Oreo's. Truthfully he didn't like them that much, but hopefully he'd be able to find a box of something else like Doritos or Cheezies or something, and have those instead. Gavin never actually eaten Doritos or Cheezies, but his dad said they were good, so why not now?

After a few minutes of taking everything out of the cupboards and looking through the pile on the counter to see what the stuff was, Gavin found a box of Oreo's and victoriously held them up in the air as if he had won something.
"Do you want some?" He asked, looking at Nami.
