⌈WeightβŒ‹

⌈Physical DescriptionβŒ‹
Suzume stands at the impressive 5'9 which she is self conscious about but she tries not to let it get to her.
If you would observe her from a slight distance and only her physique, it would not be immediately clear that it is the body of a woman. Her frame is lacking the signature figure of a female. Her body is toned and lean.
This is the result of years of physical training and her body is almost only muscle with next to no body fat. Clearly the body of a seasoned fighter.
Her face however have soft, edges with what you would call a feminine frame. Her nose is petite and her lips full.
Her complexion is quite tanned due to many hours training and sparring outside in the sun.

Her hair is always tied up in a high pony tail for prectical reasons and it reaches her mid back. Her father have nagged her about cutting it short but she refuses because she feels like it is her most feminine feature and wants to keep it that way.

Due to her physique she prefers clothes that are generally gender neutral. Simple shirts and pants in different shades of red to still represent the fire nation.

⌈Study your opponent.βŒ‹




⌈Potential InterestβŒ‹
No one as of yet.

⌈Skills
βŒ‹
    ✦ Martial Arts || As she does not know any kind of bending, she was taught from a young age by her father and then later her uncle when her sister was born.
    ✦ Weaponry || When she turned ten, her uncle decided to teach her how to fight with weapons. Even though your body can be used as one, an extra asset is never bad. She is adept at most close combat weapons but her favorite is the staff.
    ✦ First Aid || She's been taught how to treat almost any wound with simple tools. Unless they're fatal. With this she learned the usage of herbs and such.

⌈Do I really do this?βŒ‹




⌈OtherβŒ‹
She always carries her staff with her. It was especially made for her by her uncle. She also carries a short sword on her back and two daggers on her hips.

⌈Habits
βŒ‹
    ❖ Humming || Whenever she's not training she will most likely be humming a tune. Her mother often sang for her as a child so most tunes are lullabies her mother sang.
    ❖ Gestures || She uses a lot of gestures as she speaks, especially when excited or angry to emphasize her feelings.
    ❖ Lip Biting || When she is deep in thought she bites her lip and focuses her eyes on one spot. Because of how rarely she actually does deep thinking, it is quite straining.





⌈LikesβŒ‹
    β™₯ Dresses || She loves dresses. She feels like her own physique would not to them justice so she never wears them. She uses the excuse that they're impractical and limits movement. But she would love to wear one and feel beautiful.
    β™₯ The outdoors || She really does feel like your movement is limited indoors. The outside air is also much better for concentrating.
    β™₯ Laughing || Her childhood was very strict. She was not often allowed moments to just enjoy herself and have fun and she feels like she's got some catching up to do.

⌈DislikesβŒ‹
    ✘ Tight spaces || She is a pretty tall woman and requires her space.
    ✘ Losing || She is very hard on herself. When faced with a loss she will make up for it with sometimes relentless training.
    ✘ Pigeons || She is certain they're evil. Just look at them with their empty stares...





⌈StrengthsβŒ‹
    βœͺ Mobility || She is very mobile and combined with her length she can reach many places most cannot.
    βœͺ High Endurance || Years of early rising and late night training have left her with incredible stamina.
    βœͺ Stubbornes || She does not quit before she succeeds, this is a blessing as much as a curse.

⌈WeaknessesβŒ‹
    ⌘ Long range || Suzume is a close quarter fighter. If she is left out of reach of her opponent she is left with a small chance of winning.
    ⌘ Impulsive || She doesn't really think of consequence before she acts. This has resulted her ending up in many situations with the odds very much against her favor.
    ⌘ Stubborn || She never knows when to stop and this has caused her a lot of injuries because she pushes herself to her absolute limit.

The sun shone through the window. Suki let out a slight grunt before rolling over to avoid the light. She's usually the type to get up once the sin shines but todday she had a day off and felt like sleeping in. Her peaceful moment did not last long, all of a sudden there the sound of her bedroom door opening and in came a very much awake dog named Junior. He's a great dane and the friendliest dog in the world. She was awoken by a tongue licking her cheek over and over until she finally sat up and patted his head and looked towards the door. Her brother was leaning against the door frame.
"It's your turn to take him out, sis." He casually said.
She rubbed her eye and simply nodded while let out a yawn at the same time. She signed to Junior to lie down and he obediently did as she put on her glasses and got herself ready.

After a quick shower and breakfast she was about to head out the door, Junior's leash in one hand and her skateboard in the other. She decided to take him to the park, despite the fact no one went there. Maybe it was for the better. Then she could ride her skateboard and Junior could run freely. She left the house and made her way towards the park.
As soon as they got there she removed the leash and got on her skateboard and made her way towards the biggest patch of grass with Junior happily running after her.
She came to an abrupt stop as she heard a guitar and singing. She saw someone sitting on a bench and she couldn't help but stare for a few seconds. His singing was amazing. 'Have I seen him before? I think i recognize him...'

She decided to play with Junior instead, maybe she'll figure out the name later.

Kei woke up to the usual havoc, it seemed that one of the little ones had gone to the toilet on Akiko and she was having a screaming fit, this just woke up the other little ones and they were also bawling - for no reason what-so-ever.
Blinking away his sleepy haze, Kei sat up on his top bunk of three, they had just about managed to fit two three-bunk beds and one two-bunk bed in this small room, yawning Kei slides down the make-shift ladder he had thrown together (they got the two three-bunks second hand and they didn't come with ladders) and walked past his brother's and sister's. He had no idea how Cho nor Emi had managed to stay asleep but some how, they had.

Slipping into the bathroom, Kei eyes his bed-head reflection before crawling into the shower grinning as the warm water slid over his face, instantly waking him up from that sleep-ridden stupor he was in.
Exiting the shower, Kei then went and threw on a simple grey tee-shirt and black jeans.

Slipping on his socks down the hardwood floor, Kei shakes his wet hair out of his eyes and walks into the kitchen where both Aunts and most cousins are sitting.
Greeting them all, he grabs an apple and collapses on the sofa, flipping it over to a random channel and ignoring his little sister's (Izumi) complaints for changing it from her favourite show, 'adventure time'.

But before he can really get into the programme, Ken (his uncle) calls him over asking him: "Can you take out Mio, Kyo and Mei? They're getting extremely restless."
Reluctantly agreeing, Kei straps the three youngest into their joint buggy and opens the door, sighing when he realises he probably looks so weird - A teenage boy pushing three small children in a buggy with wet hair all over his face, oh yeah, that was the best way to pick up girls...(sarcasm)

Shrugging to himself, Kei pushes them quickly to the play-park and lets Mio and Kyo romp around together, while playing in the sandpit with Mei - there was a girl in the play-park as well, with (what appeared to be) her dog and Kei gave her a brief smile before turning back to Mei.
He could also hear faint singing coming from a little further up the park and takes in the voice.
"Nice," he whispers to himself and grins as Mio and Kyo come to join them.

(post for Hana coming soon..)

Yuki Uta Kioku

Two boys lay on the couch, backs at opposite ends. Their legs were tangled and a book lay open on the face of the on with black hair, his head hanging backwards. The other, however, had an animal on his head instead. A ferret, to be precise, and it was the ferret who woke up first. It lay where it was for a while before scarpering down to it's owner's shoulders. And then it jumped to the floor, running away to the kitchen. He was possibly wishing for the cupboards to magically unlock themselves so he could have a feast before his owner woke up and scolded him. But no, the cupboards were always closed. Poor thing.

It was the younger brother who opened his eyes second, a flash of brownish crimson, unlacing his legs gracefully as if it were a game of Jenga. He stood and stretched his arms towards the ceiling in a calm, quiet way. His eyes scanned the room, first falling on his brother. Unlike usual, his long hair was out and his face covered by the book. Yuki lifted the book softly, closing and putting it on the table. Too many times had he seen his brother wake and sit up too quickly, sending the book flying onto the floor. Well, sure, it was hilarious to watch. But today was not one of the days where he would find that funny. Yuki could tell.

His eyes landed on his ferret, who turned his nose up and ran off into his older brother's room. "Good morning, Jacques." he smiled, raising an eyebrow. Yuki tapped his brother a few times on the nose and he woke quickly, before looking up at the white-haired boy. "Good morning, Haru!" Yuki said, slipping into his room for a few minutes. He received a grumble in response. He showered, slipped on some clothes and stepped into his shoes. "Well, I'm off."

"Wait, wait, wait. Where are you going?" Haru stood up, walking to the kitchen area. "Have you had breakfast? Did you greet Jacques? Where is he?"

"Um, er... N-no, yes and in your room." Yuki smiled softly. "Well, I'm going!"

Haru walked towards him. "Yuki-"

"Bye!" Yuki grabbed his jacket and shut the front door.

"Buy some breakfast while you're out, at least!" he heard. Chuckling, he walked down the stairs quickly. Outside, he began to make his way to the park. For some weird reason which he cannot remember for the life of him, the park was practically deserted these days. Oh well, as long as he could just take a seat and read the small book in his pocket.

But when he got to the park, he heard singing. And music. And then it stopped. Well, he felt weird anyways. I mean, he never usually recognised things, but, no pun intended, it struck a chord. So he walked to where he thought the music was coming from, ending up in a random area. "Where am I? Am I lost? In a park? I can't be, I haven't had breakfast yet." he said to himself looking about for people. I mean, he saw a few, but what was he supposed to do? Go up and talk to them? He suddenly glared. "People." No way.

No. Way.

Mika Walker


"How about you do me a favor and answer my question?"

Mika heard a voice behind her as she turned around, and saw a blonde haired young man in front of her. For a while, she just stared, probably seeming to be rude or strange, but it was because she had thoughts going through her head, 'He... looks like someone I used to know back then... Who was that again? But I do think I've seen him... somewhere before... haven't I?'

She snapped out of her dazing a moment later and immediately answering with her default smile, "Y-yes? What would that be?" She asked. Mika first began to think it was about the orphanage or something since she just came there and was still a bit close to the building, but apparently, that didn't seem to be the case.

"Who... are you?"

"Hmm?" She looked at the person standing in front of her with a confused, yet curious face. Mika saw that no one else was in the area, seeing how rarely anyone would visit an orphanage, and figured that he was talking to her. She wasn't the type of shrug off any questions, even to a strange, so she just answered, "A-ah, Mika, Mika Walker. Nice to meet you." She gave a slight bow of respect as she always did, but then after raising her head, she asked slowly, "Though... if you wouldn't mind me asking, why so curious all of a sudden? I don't recall us ever meeting before..."

Half of that was slightly a lie because she had a strange feeling about the stranger who she was talking to, but then again, the memory felt so hazy that it also felt as if it was just a hallucination or something she felt very uncertain of, and perhaps it was, but she couldn't shake off the unusual feeling, so she couldn't hesitate to ask.





Naota Suzumi


After writing down a few more notes into his music, he pulled up his guitar again, and took another deep breath, beginning to play a different chord and a different tone to it. Since he didn't feel the last song would do well, he decided to ignore it for now, and instead, brought up a new sheet he just began to scribble down lyrics.

(Again, another song name Kimi no Me wo)

One by one, I gathered
the sounds you liked to hear
though the sounds by themselves, really
hurt my ears so much it was unbearable

I’ll stop playing the guitar I started strumming yesterday for a while
I was just trying to copy the sounds of the CD I borrowed from you

So, just as I thought, to keep you from knowing
I can’t shut it away
From the chord that’s about to be flooded
Another’s smell leaks out

Ah, it’s become yet another song with the same ambience

It’s not anything else, it’s a song
Made to capture β€œyour eyes” and your attention
That’s why this song seems so much
Like that artist that you like

β€œThere’s no twist” β€œThere’s no charm”
Go on, I don’t care, even if you speak ill of me
It’s alright. For now, all I want
Are your eyes looking right here, at me.


But right afterwards, he sighed and let his head hang before he thought to himself, 'What am I saying... People already stare at me enough in public... Ah... who was I singing about just then though...' He just had the person who he was singing about in his head, but after he stopped, the image just disappeared like a dream.

Then he felt as if eyes were watching him as he turned and looked around. Strangely, there were more people at the park than usual, since he saw a tall blonde man, a teenager with brown hair, another with white hair, and a girl playing with her dog, "So many people..." He murmured.

Suki looked around her. Suddenly there were alot of people in the park and it was making her slightly uncomfortable. She was used to the surroundings of many people, since that's pretty much what scool is like, but it doesn't mean she's comfortable with them. She started fiddeling with her fingers when all of a sudden Junior walked over and licked her fingers reassuringly. She gently patted his head. Her dog was the best friend she had. Maybe it was a bit sad but she doesn't care.
The atmosphere with all the people made her feel uneasy so she decided it was time to leave the park. She leashed Junior and picked up her skateboard and made her way towards the exit of the park.
As she walked, she started thinking. "Am I running away from my problems? I know I should work on comunicating but-" She didn't have time to finish her train of thought before something unbelieveable happened. Junior bolted, making her drop the leash in surprise and shock.
"Ah!" She waws shocked but she quickly reacted with getting on her skateboard and hurrying after him. Her heart was racing, what if she lost him? They passed several people and all of them gave strange looks.
After what seemed like ages but in reality was a few minutes, they reached the orphanage. Junior passed a girl and a boy pretty much just outside and he sniffed them quickly before walking into the yard of the orphanage. She got off her skateboard and bowed apologetically to the two before running after Junior but she froze at the gate. She hadn't been here in so long.
Junior noticed and walked back to her. He wagged his tail as she picked up the leash. "He wanted to visit..."

Mika Walker


"That's because we.... haven't... met... before... I've... I've never seen you before... As to WHY I was curious.... I... I dunno I just was, random curiosity, nothing more, if you got a problem with that then take it up somewhere else 'cause I don't give a damn. Now if you'll excuse me..."

Mika saw her glare at him and felt a little shiver go down her back, even though she kept a smile on her face as she always did. But something wasn't right with what he said, 'Should I... say something? I mean... It'd sound a little creepy for a stranger to say they know another stranger... right? Y-yeah... maybe...'

She began to debate with herself if she really should say he seemed familiar in some way, thinking that if she didn't say it, she'd lose someone she used to know, but if she did, it'd sound really unusual. Yet while she debated, she knew she wouldn't let one thing go as she began to walk the same direction as him and gently tugged on his shirt before saying, "I know when someone's lying. L-listen... I know this might sound strange... but I do recall seeing you somewhere before. My memory has never been the best... so if we have met before, and I don't remember right now, I apologize." She said politely, like she would to an adult before doing a quick respectful bow.

When Mika raised her head, she looked at him again and said, "Besides, you asked for my name, didn't you? And didn't I answer? So now it's your turn to introduce yourself." She smiled, wanting, at the very least, to end the conversation on a good note rather than a bad one.

Mika then felt something around her as she saw a dog sniffing around her. She giggled a bit, patting the dog's head before seeing the owner apologize and run off to get him. She ran towards the orphanage too, which surprised Mika since she didn't know very many people who would visit, "It's nice to see people finally come..."

That made her think of something then as she turned back to the blonde teenager and asked, "Actually... I also have another question if you don't mind me asking... Why did you come here? Not many people care about this old orphanage anymore, so I'm a bit surprised that anyone would actually stop by."






Naota Suzumi


Naota leaned his head back on the bench he sat at, murmuring a song out loud, and actually falling asleep. He hadn't gotten it for two straight days, and he was really tired. This was all because of his career as a singer. He didn't just sing the song, he also played the instruments, or as many as possible, and wrote the music out. It was enjoyable, yes, but also very stressful, causing him to stay up late at night, or getting no sleep at all. It was only likely he'd be tired.

But his short nap, which didn't even last a minute, was interrupted when the alarm on his phone rang, making him jump from the bench and nearly drop the guitar on his lap. Once he caught it, he let out the greatest sigh of relief you'd ever hear. He sat back down, and pulled out his phone which had an alarm saying, 'Part Time Job.'

A small smile formed on his face, for once, as he stood up, and put the guitar back into its case. The bakery was probably the best thing he loved about life, besides his old friends, who had no idea where they were, and his family. It was just a part time job, and he was surrounded by adults and the elderly, but Naota was treated kindly, and he was able to laugh and smile without worries.

He grabbed his music sheets and stuffed them into his pocket before walking towards the direction of the bakery, still having a very small smile on his face. But as he passed the orphanage where there were three people, and he recognized them all, even though it was so hard to remember where he had seen them.

Naota saw that already two were talking, and obviously wouldn't interrupt people, so instead, he walked up to the girl with the dog and brown hair, and tapped her on the shoulder, "Excuse me miss..." He said in a low and quiet tone as he always did, also using polite speech since he was probably one of the most polite people you would ever see, "Correct me if I'm wrong... but I think I know you, but I can't remember very well, so I could also be incorrect about my statement. If so, I apologize." It was actually a little too polite, even when talking to a stranger, or anyone actually, but that's just the way he was.

Suki Nakamura

Suki was spacing out as she watched the orphanage. She remembered her life there, it was a good one and she had nothing but good memories. She smiled slightly before her train of thought was interrupted by a tap on her shoulder.
She was slightly startled and quickly turned around. It was the boy from the park, the one with the beautiful singing.
"Excuse me miss..." He said in a low voice.
She looked at him as he spoke and wondered what he could want with her.
"Correct me if I'm wrong... but I think I know you, but I can't remember very well, so I could also be incorrect about my statement. If so, I apologize."
She jaw dropped ever so slightly. She was not expecting him to say he recognized her aswell since she didn't really think that she had made any sort of inpact on anyone she'd met.
She looked him in the eyes for a few seconds before realizing she had to answer or she would appear rude, whic wouldn't do since he was being incredibly polite.
He was right though. She did recognize him aswell. She opened and closed her mouth a few times before she took a deep breath and finally managed to speak in a very low and stuttering voice.
"I t-think I know you a-aswell. I-I saw you in the park a-and I c-couldn't help but n-notice you as you were s-singing." She was blushing slightly and she was getting nervous because of her stuttering which had always made her feel so awkward. Yet he seemed nice and she decided this would be a good opportunity to work on her shyness. She started playing with the leash in her hands as she took another deep breath. "I-I'm Suki. Suki Nakamura." At this point she was struggling to kep eye contact but she really hoped she hadn't made a too bad of a first impression. Or second.

Zane Aria Shinto

Zane sighed. "Guess I'm home fr... wha?!" Zane stumbled slightly, being thrown off balance by the sudden tugging on his shirt. Thankfully he managed to right himself before he fell flat on his face. Glaring aggresively he turned to whomever was behind him. "Hey watch it buddy or I'll pound your... oh... Mika..." He saw Mika looking back at him and had ended up addressing her by first name without seeming to notice.

"I know when someone's lying. L-listen... I know this might sound strange... but I do recall seeing you somewhere before. My memory has never been the best... so if we have met before, and I don't remember right now, I apologize." She spoke politely to the point where Zane was visibly cringing... still, while it was a major annoyance to him also, it was almost a relief to know that Mika hadn't actually completely forgotten him... as, who was he kidding, he remembered all of them, all of his friends from the past, his memory was perfect. The only reason he never sought them out... well... for the same reason he drifted apart from them in the first place.

"Look I... you don't-" He was cut off by Mika's own voice.

"Besides, you asked for my name, didn't you? And didn't I answer? So now it's your turn to introduce yourself." She smiled with those words.

Zane was about to come up with some convoluted excuse when he noticed a dog at his heels and its owner close behind, when the girl arrived and made a quick bow of apology Zane recognised her and under his breath he muttered a barely audible. "...Suki...?" However before he could say anymore she was gone... not that he probably would have anyway...

He heard Mika mutter something about how it was nice to see more people come and suddenly felt his voice working before he could stop it. "I'm Zane Ari-" A hand was clamped over his mouth like lightning. Damn tourettes! It always made him say what he didn't want to say!

He was about to correct himself when Mika was talking again and so he decided to just leave it and hope she didn't notice.

"Actually... I also have another question if you don't mind me asking... Why did you come here? Not many people care about this old orphanage anymore, so I'm a bit surprised that anyone would actually stop by."

Zane suddenly felt himself blushing terribly as he found himself explaining his reasons for being there.

"I was... donating some old toys..." He paused. "For my sister! You see... she didn't want them anymore and she made me lug this bag all the way down here and it was heavy and I was annoyed and..." He froze for a moment.

"Why do you ask so many questions... you never did that-... I mean I never DO that... and by that I mean answer questions..." Zane felt his lie crumbling and his eyes began to dart as if frantically searching for a way to climb out of the hole he was digging himself into.

Mika Walker


Mika saw that she almost made the 'stranger' in front of her trip and immediately let go. The glare she got at first kind of scared her a bit, making her shiver for a mere moment. Even more so when he began, "Hey watch it buddy or I'll pound your... oh... Mika..." Though, she calmed down after seeing how his tone of voice switched.

After asking for the stranger's name, he started, but suddenly cut himself off all of a sudden, "I'm Zane Ari-"

'Hmm?' Mika wondered to herself, only staring up at the person who introduced him self as Zane, but apparently didn't finish, 'Zane.... That name... Haven't I heard it from somewhere...?' It made her think even harder, causing her to tap her finger on her cheek as she did so. Without even realizing, she silently said, "Zane... Aria... Shinto... isn't that right?"

But a moment later, she didn't even know that she said something out loud, like it was a dream or something, obviously shown in the way she spoke, "A-ah? Did I say something? Hmm... Must have been nothing!" She shook her head to herself, probably looking really strange, but she always did in the end, so it didn't bother her too much.

Just as she finished asking her last question about why he was visiting the orphanage, he went red as he explained to her, "I was... donating some old toys... For my sister! You see... she didn't want them anymore and she made me lug this bag all the way down here and it was heavy and I was annoyed and..."

Mika laughed a bit at his reaction to such a basic question, but apologized for being rude a minute later and said with a smile, "That's good to hear, at least there are other people who would even care to donate such things when it could be thrown away which would be much easier to do... Still, Id have to thank you for going through the trouble of bringing them here for the children." She said happily since the kids rarely got anything new to play around with.

"Why do you ask so many questions... you never did that-... I mean I never DO that... and by that I mean answer questions..."

"You're quite the odd one, aren't you?" Mika giggled a second time before sighing, "Mm... Though, I can't really say that either since I am odd myself. I guess I have that random curiosity, isn't that right?" She copied the line he used from before then turned towards the orphanage, "But I suppose you could say it's because of the orphanage? I'm quite attached to it, so I just can't help myself when I see people visiting this old place."





Naota Suzumi


"I t-think I know you a-aswell. I-I saw you in the park a-and I c-couldn't help but n-notice you as you were s-singing."

'Eh... she's blushing. This girl's so shy she can't even talk to someone...?' Naota wondered to himself, only blinking at her a few times before finally saying something out loud, "Ah... I think I remember seeing you pass by..." He glanced at the dog, remembering seeing the dog distinctively over everything else for some reason, "That song then... I'm guessing you heard it? What do you think?" He asked, though his facial expression didn't change very much. It was his job, after all, to see if anyone favored the songs he wrote and if it was worth publishing.

"I-I'm Suki. Suki Nakamura."

'Suki... Nakamura?' It was just a sly moment, but Naota had a very, very surprised look on his face after hearing that name, 'As in... the one I knew in the past...? S-she does look sort of similar to the Suki from back then... but maybe it's just a coincidence... Though... having the first and last name may be more than just a coincidence...'

He glanced up at her again, checking to really see if it was the girl he knew from a while back, 'She doesn't seem to recognize me though... Maybe she is the wrong person... Or did she forget?' Naota's memory wasn't the greatest, or the worst, but he did remember all the memories of his past with his friends.

Nevertheless, he didn't want to bring it up. At least, not until he was certain or until she would bring it up, so he simply stood quiet and held out his hand, introducing himself as he would to most people, but only saying his first name in fear she'd realize his last name, and maybe ask him a bunch of questions like most of the girl's did after finding out that he was that professional singer and song writer, "Nice to meet you, Nakamura-san ; Naota." He said simply.

It probably would have sounded rude because most people would have to say their last name as well, but Naota really wasn't in the mood to be swarmed by another fan, so in the mean time, he'd rather just to have a regular conversation with a regular person than having a one-sided conversation with an insane fan.

Not to mention, he also had to get to his second and part time job at the bakery or he'd be late.

Suki Nakamura

Suki watched him as he heard her name. Maybe she would notice something in his reaction to if he remembered her or not. She saw something, if only for a brief second the thought she saw something in the style of surprise. She tilted her head lightly.
'I wonder if it rings a bell...'

As she thought this, a hand was offered. "Nice to meet you, Nakamura-san ; Naota."
This time she showed surprise. She recognised the name but from where she was not entirely sure. Her thoughts wandered for a few seconds and she remembered hearing his name on the radio but there were several Naotas and she didn't even know this one's last name, but that didn't seem like the right answer.

Maybe that's where she heard the name. She took his hand and as she did she remembered something. 'I remember now, Naota-san.' "It's n-nice to meet y-you too, N-naota-san. Your s-singing is a-amazing, by the way."
As she let go of his hand she smiled genuinely. "You know, I-I had a c-classmate once named Naota."
She looked at him. Yes, he looked very much like the Naota from when she was little. It made her smile wider. She started remembering her old friends and it would be great if she actually met them again some day, she thought.

Mika Walker


After she seemed to have murmured something, perhaps it was a name, or a location, or a date, she didn't know, Zane became red all of a sudden and she wondered why, 'But... what did I say that struck a nerve? I can't remember though... Maybe I should ask? I'm blunt like that but- Ah! Mika, idiot, that'd sound weird! You're making yourself look stranger in front of people now!" She sighed at her miniature internal conflicts with herself, but brushed it off later.

"No... I don't think you said anything anyway..."

"Yeah, that's what I thought too!" She said, though she knew she said something, but couldn't lay her finger on it, sort of like a dream you had but didn't remember after waking up, 'How odd... my memory isn't the best, but it's never been this bad before... Strange... Ah well! Must be normal! Might as well just ignore it in the mean time!"

"Yeah well... it was what anybody would've done... or more what they should've done. I'm not heartless after all..."

Mika, after hearing that, let out a small sigh a second time as the smile on her face seemed to fade as she turned to glance at the orphanage children, "I really wish that was the case... But there are many people out there who are just too selfish or care for themselves... Sometimes they have a reason, but most times... they're just plain greedy. Still, that's why I'm here to save them from that sin!" It probably sounded really corny, the way she said it, but what she said was what she thought, and it was true because she even took pity on people like that because she believed that a 'hero' shouldn't hate on anyone and instead, try to save them from their conflicts to make them into a better person.

While she was staring at the orphanage, she also heard Zane say, "I suppose I shouldn't have been so surprised to meet you here of all people... stupid hero. Well then, a question for a question eh? Both of our curiosities sated. In that case, I think we're even and I'll take my leave. So long, Mika."

She was spacing out at that moment, not really paying attention to what he said until a minute later when he was already paces ahead of her. All her thoughts occurred in a mere moment as she began to wonder, 'Huh? Stupid... hero...? How did he know? We just met, didn't we? No one else calls me that but those few people I used to know in elementary and Jr. High... Though... the name Zane does ring a faint bell... B-but that's probably just a coincidence!'

Mika raised her hand to wave good bye as she would to anyone she met, even though it may have only been a mere minute or two until she recognized something, 'My part time job...' She thought before realizing something quite important and running to catch up with him, "H-Hey! I've got one more question to-"

And just as usual, she fell down from the weakness in her legs. It was nothing deadly, or at least to her, it wasn't, but it did affect her running abilities. But, just as usual as well, she got up, dusted the dirt off her legs and hands before saying loud enough to hear, "Neh! I have one more thing to ask!" She pointed to a piece of paper in her hands with what appeared to be directions, "Where is this place? It's an elementary school, and I have a job there, but I never came there beforehand. Do you recon knowing the location and just pointing out the way to me before we part?"





Naota Suzumi


After introducing himself, he noticed that Suki, the girl in front of him, also seemed to show a great amount of surprise as seen by her reaction to his first name, 'D-don't tell me she figured out that I was that singer they've been putting up everywhere...' He gulped, hoping that wasn't the case, at the very most since that'd be horrible. All he wanted was a normal day, nothing more, and this was exactly what he was looking for, if only it wouldn't fall apart just yet.

"It's n-nice to meet y-you too, N-naota-san. Your s-singing is a-amazing, by the way."

"Ah, you really think so...?" A slight expression appeared onto his face again, also a bit surprised. Yeah, he did hear it often from crazy fans or just people walking by, but she just said it short and simple, just like that. It made him a bit glad really, because he always felt that a short, straight to the point answer was always the best, no matter what the situation was, "Thanks... I suppose... But they're all just work in progress songs. I doubt they'll ever even be published. Feel lucky you hear it because you won't be hearing it again-" He judged noticed that he pointed out, almost literally, that he was the songwriter, and the singer that was on his rise to popularity in the city. Naota was just begging on the inside that she wouldn't find out or at least pay any attention to it.

"You know, I-I had a c-classmate once named Naota."

"You... Did...?" Naota asked, wondering if she was actually that one person he remembered in his class as well. It was such a long time ago, and that girl he knew who went by Suki, probably could have changed immensely, perhaps she wasn't even the same person from back then either and it was just a strange occurrence that the two had classmates with the same name as the both of them, but for some reason, Naota highly doubted that.

Since she began to bring it up, he scratched the back of his neck, his eyes darting around, but avoiding her as he was perhaps embarrassed to say, "O-odd... I had a classmate back in elementary who also had the exact name as you... Suki, Nakamura... And not to mention she looked completely like you and even had the same personality, and the problem with stuttering..."

He may have been a bit embarrassed because, well, if he got the wrong person, it'd be a little awkward, wouldn't it? And the normal conversation he was hoping to have suddenly, and most likely, would have just disappeared into the distance, but he had a strong feeling about this, and decided to take the high risk anyways.

Then, Naota noticed he didn't tell Suki his last name as she seemed to have been wondering about it. There was a reason why he didn't want her to know, two actually; One being that his last name sounded kinda girly, and he was made fun of it sometimes in childhood, and two, he could just mistake her for a fan he saw in a last live show he did, which was actually just the week before. But still, as put, Naota had his hopes that the girl standing in front of him was the one from his childhood and took the risk, "Susumi; my last name is Suzumi. Suzumi Naota."

Suki Nakamura

"You... Did...?"
Suki nodded. He said it in a way that gave Suki, well, hope. She pretty much knew who he was, she just needed a little bit more verification. Like his last name. What made her almost certain was the way he looked and behaved. He seemed to have remained the Naota she used to know which made her relieved, change sometimes scared her.

"O-odd... I had a classmate back in elementary who also had the exact name as you... Suki, Nakamura... And not to mention she looked completely like you and even had the same personality, and the problem with stuttering..."
She knew about her stuttering and him bringing it up as a resemblance was not surprising, but the stuttering in particular makes her very self conscious. This time she brought her hand to the back of her neck, blushing lightly.
"N-not alot of ppeople have this p-problem I g-guess..."

"Suzumi; my last name is Suzumi. Suzumi Naota."
There it was. The confirmation she needed. She looked back up at him with another look of surprise, but her face of surprise soon turned to a gentle smile. It was Naota she once knew. Everything fell into place.
"So it is you, N-naota-kun."
She suddenly felt more relaxed, she actually giggled as she said this.
"It s-sure has been a w-while."
