Many people, upon meeting the Yonkoma siblings, might find Mari to be somewhat abrasive, or dull, perhaps. She seems to lack the cute aspects of her younger sister, while also not having the [insert quality] of her elder sister. She is not one to put up with mistreatment or idiocy, having a very low tolerance for disrespect and the like, which is where her tendency to be viewed as abrasive comes from. In fact, despite her initial appearance, some students consider Mari to be a delinquent. The teachers don't guess it, for she is rather well mannered in class, but the girl is the sort who may be found behind the school with bruises and scratches. She has the tendency to goad people on, intentionally or not, with her harsh words, and has little problem with the violence that might soon follow depending on the person. It is almost hypocritical, for she tends to look down on those who react immediately with violence, but the situation does stand that she often finds herself in the middle of it. Her very small patience doesn't help in the slightest with this little tendency of hers.

Still, Mari is not defined exclusively by a quick temper, biting tongue, and lack of patience. She does have some good points, such as the kindness with which she treats those she cares about, in her own way. The young woman is almost doting on her sisters, particularly her younger, in a way that may be subtle, but is still rather clear. She seems to constantly be picking up little presents for them, and has trouble saying no to her sisters. Towards most others, though, she is stubborn and unwilling to do things unless they have some benefit towards her, such as being paid in candy or cash. Greed aside, she helps those with no other options. It's just that she refuses to help those who obviously don't really need it. She is Honest, as well, but perhaps that occasionally works against her, for Mari is a terrible liar, even when honesty can be cruel towards people. It isn't difficult to read her like a book- her face can be very open about her feelings, ranging from disdain to admiration.

ImageNemui sat in the car with her older sisters, leaned against one of the window seats reading yet another romance manga. She was facing Mari, so clearly she wasn't wearing a seat belt. Her eyes scanned the pages, a light blush over her facial features as she went. This was her guilty pleasure, which she normally kept hidden under lock and key, but she was open about it with Mari, Ayano, and their mother. Mari and Ayano were always there for her, whenever she could be. Nemui had respect for her sisters, despite her occasional idiotic jealousy sprees. Sure Mari and Ayano were rough around the edges, but their appeal lied elsewhere. They had wonderful personalities, both of them, if they allowed you close enough to spectate that is. Nemui wasn't as confident or physical as her older siblings. She was far more timid and peaceful.

Her golden orbs shifted to her sister for the first time in the hour long drive as she flipped the page of her manga, "Are you excited Onee-chan?" She asked Mari inquisitively, only glancing down at the contents of her manga every now and then. Sure she wanted to know what happened to Wakamiya Hikaru, but she knew the story could wait. They'd drove the entire ride in silence and it was starting to bother her. Sure she was nervous, four new brothers? It was extremely overwhelming, and not to mention it would be the first time she'd shared residence with boys. Though they weren't just boys, they were her brothers, so how dangerous could it really be? They were now tied by the marriage of their parents, it wasn't like they'd behave recklessly. They weren't allowed to be like other boys anymore, right? On the bright side, Nemui did know one of them at least. Yushiro Higurashi. He was in her class every year since they'd enrolled, though they never really spoke before. The two of them were from completely different worlds. He was popular and she was practically a nobody, except nobodies didn't get bullied. Unfortunately she existed enough for that service.

"I mean.. they're our brothers now, we always wanted a brother, now we have six of them.." She smiled brightly. She removed her glasses, bookmarking her page in Moe Kare before closing it. They were close to arrival, she saw the top of the building before removing her glasses. It was time to put her contacts in. The last thing she wanted was her new brothers to notice she was blind as a bat. She shuffled through the pocket of her coat before opening the container, placing each onto her eyes carefully. She hated the process, it was uncomfortable and made her eyes water.. but what if they decided to pick on her for her glasses too? Brothers weren't always known to be nice.. at least from what she'd read in manga.

"Or are you worried about that huge exam coming up?" Nemui kept track of Ayano's exams religiously in order to help her older sister prepare. Ayano and Mari aided her so much everywhere else, she felt incredibly in debt to her sisters. So once Nemui was old enough to, she started helping out. It was the least Nemui felt she could do in return. "You know I'll help you crunch. Coffee, Cocoa, the works. Even dango! There's no way you'll get bad marks with our studying ritual." She replied sweetly, smiling after she'd arranged her contacts. Sakura Square was closing in on them now. It was a matter of minutes before they'd reach their new home and meet their new family for the first time, officially speaking. I wonder if they will like us..? She thought timidly, shifting her position in the seat back to the standard way, staring ahead at the road. She shuffled around in the seat nervously, definitely irritating the driver since her feet kept tapping against the base of his seat.

Mari had simply been gazing out the window for the majority of the drive. She hadn't brought anything to occupy her time, unfortunately, but is more than capable of being satisfied with her own thoughts as distraction. Mostly she wonders about how long the trip from this house to her parttime job is. It might actually be a bit closer to the bakery where she is employed. Working at a bakery doesn't really seem to suit her image, having been considered something of a delinquent in her school years, or even a bully due to her tendency to goad people on. However, the girl received the job because she visited the shop so frequently, possessing a large sweet tooth, and has exceptional taste buds- for whatever that's worth. And she's come to like the job, so much so that she changed her university major to culinary. That being said, she's limited her hours at the university so as to make more money working- she dislikes the idea of her mother having to pay for her courses, and likes to have her own money around, little as it may be.

Her thoughts, rather practical and for the most part not worth mentioning, are cut through by the voice of her younger sister, Nemui. It is no small secret that Mari dotes upon Nemui, though in her own, sort of way, unable to say no to the girl. She's far too different than Mari for her to be disliked by her. "Hm? Not really," Mari responds rather frankly, as she always does, though Nemui's excitement seems rather evident. She wonders, with some part of her mind, how the drive can have been an hour long. It feels like this house should be a good deal closer than it is, given that one of the brothers attends the same school as Nemui. Opposite sides of the school's area, perhaps, or maybe this person had decided to put up with a longer trip to school.

The girl adjusts her sitting so that she is facing into the car, rather than out of it. This gives her a better look at her siblings, as well as some of the luggage peaking out of the trunk. Mari looks back at Nemui when the bespectacled girl mentions that they've always wanted a brother, before putting in her contacts. Personally, Mari cannot ever recall thinking she wanted a brother, except perhaps to spar with. Noticing how uncomfortable the process of putting in the contacts, Mari questions her sister: "Why don't you just wear your glasses?" As Nemui turns to speak to Ayano, Mari shrugs and looks back out the window.

As they turn the corner, she feels they must be very close.

Image*Dream*
Girls surrounded Touya on a king sized bed, if anyone walked in, you'd barely see the man behind the wall of women, but that was how he liked it. Touya didn't take women seriously at all. Pawns. They were nothing more than toys to dispose of whenever he chose fit. He never had a serious girlfriend in his entire life, and throughout high school he had a infamous record of being a player. The only people Touya ever seemed to care about aside from himself was his brothers. He wasn't fond of their father, and refused to speak of their late mother. Their loss was something he wasn't ready to discuss.. even though it'd been years. He was enjoying their company, eyes glistening as clothes went flying-
*End dream*

BEEP! BEEP! Your brother messaged you! Beep! Beep! It's your brother! Beep! Pick up!

"Ugh... Damn it..." He hissed throwing his phone across the room angrily. Touya sighed a bit, and tilted his head. Why was his brother waking him at this hour? With glasses askew on his face, Touya looked over to his calender. He often forgot to take them off before going to bed, especially on nights that his brother Arashi decided to sleep in his room. They'd stay up all night talking and they'd slip his mind as he'd doze off unexpectedly. Oh.. Sisters.. Joy.. He thought to himself sarcastically, allowing his head to fall back on the pillow. He dared to go back to sleep, dared to ignore them, though he was sure that Ky and Keiichi wouldn't be happy. He'd hear their rage for hours. He stood and threw his black shirt off, searching through his wardrobe as he voiced his concerns, "Well. I suppose, marriage is a large step. Father probably wouldn't marry someone he wasn't serious about. I'd say he's quite smitten if he didn't just bed her and forget her at the hotel." He smirked at the thought, throwing on his blue checkered sweater. He knew talking to himself was a bad habit, but it felt like he was talking to Arashi. They did look a lot alike aside from their hair after all.. Touya looked around the room as he looked for his jacket, eyes landing on his computer desk. Touya's room wasn't exactly a mess, but it wasn't overly tidy either. He threw his jacket on his bed before the dark haired twin kicked off his pants, throwing them lazily in the dirty clothes bin before sliding into a pair of black straight legged pants. He shuffled around his dresser until he found a white belt, slipping it through the loops of his pants quickly. Honestly he was excited to meet the girls, and they'd be here any moment. He had little time to waste.

"Marriage is for saps anyhow." He smirked to himself, pretending Arashi was behind him sitting on the bed, "If you can simply bed a girl, why even bother putting an expensive ring on another?" He chuckled a bit at his logic, before it faded away, his visible eye more serious. He thought of their mother for a split moment, the beautiful woman they lost.. He frowned, shoving the thought away as fast as possible.. Touya really didn't feel like harassing someone, but if it came to running an unworthy wench away, he'd swallow his mood and do so. No girls were entering his brothers lives aside from recreational purpose if he had a say in the matter... even if he didn't Touya always had a habit of butting in. Arashi, Yushiro, and Keiichi were much less guarded than he, and far more susceptible to emotional damage. He wasn't going to let some girl hurt any of his brothers without putting up a moderate fight.

As he finally retrieved his phone, Touya read the message while he slid his coat on over his shoulders. It was slightly awkward having girls invade the home, but deep down he didn't mind. Touya would never admit it, but he was just as fond of cuddling and physical affection as Arashi was. He just had pride and a reputation to uphold. Everyone knew Touya as the troublemaker, the bad boy of the brothers. When he was enrolled, no one dared to touch Arashi or Yushiro in school because they were afraid of pissing off Touya, "Yeah, just let me put my jacket on." He quickly texted back with a laugh at his phone as he shoved it in the pocket of his pants. He opened the door to his room, exiting and locking it behind him before working his path to the entrance of their complex. Then his eyes fell on Arashi sleeping in his doorway. He chuckled to himself, before hoisting his twin upon his back and proceeding to carry him downstairs.

Once they made it outside, Touya's mood changed once again, mostly to keep up his delinquent front, "Well, time to meet our sisters." He drawled to himself, rolling his eyes. I wonder if any of them are pretty.. He thought to himself before removing his thoughts from trivial matters. It wasn't like a relationship would be possible. Stuck living with a one night stand.. That'd be a drag.. He made his way outside, eyebrow perking as his gaze fell upon his little brother Yushiro, "You seem too excited.." He added, giving his baby brother a smug smirk, before another thought hit him, blurting it out "That classmate of yours.. how old is she? She looked pretty short in the pictures dad sent. Is she a midget?" He snickered at the thought of that small of a girl in the house. He'd have to look down constantly just to avoid stepping on her.

Then the car arrived. He smirked a bit, nudging his sleeping twin he'd brought downstairs, "Oii.. Ara-chii... It's time to wake up. Our sisters are here now.." He mumbled. Though it looked like Yushiro was determined to be first to greet them..

Ayano smiled as she looked over to her sisters, Mari being quiet like always and Nemui breaking the awkward silence Ayano can't bring to do. "Brothers... never sounded too badly actually. It'll be good, for us not to be so alone when the others are out, right?" Ayano offered her input, though the conversation was not really directed towards her. It wasn't much longer after saying that the light bulb finally went off in Ayano's head. Didn't Nemui mention at some point in the past about one of the boys being in her class?

It was a relief to say the very least, because hopefully the boy would be able to keep her company during school hours... Hopefully. Yes, worrying was secretly Ayano's specialty when it came to her sisters, to which both knew this already. Soon even her new "brothers" would be a subject to worry about, weather they want it or not... It was just something Ayano had grown accustomed to do, rather than tend to her own needs or wants.

Image
Right before she was about to open her mouth to reply though, she froze. Had she really forgotten about her exams coming up during all this? "Oh crap! Nemui, thank you so much! I had forgotten about them in all this... Ugh, I hope we can do it though, the exams are a big part of my grade this time..." Yet again, Ayano was glad to have such a helpful little sister like Nemui, more than anything. Once again though, Ayano was listening carefully to Mari when she did speak up as she looked back over to Nemui with a frown. "Nemui, Mari's right. Their your brothers now, and even though we don't know them they certainly won't mock you for wearing glasses. I think you're adorable in them!" Ayano weakly pointed out, reaching over and gently putting a hand on Mari's shoulder. The comment itself, Ayano had made sure it was harmless to a point, though still got the point across lightly.

Her little sister was beautiful, smart, and not to mention just a love bug to be around, really. She had so many qualities Ayano could only wish she could have, and it made Ayano so proud to be able to say 'Hey! That's my little sister! Isn't she amazing?'. Of course, there were always those few idiots that would ruin everything and bully her. The very thought of which made her bite the inside of her lip as she watched the car roll up in front of the estate, though her tired expression clearly showed she didn't want to get out of the car. Letting out a sigh, Ayano muttered a brief "lets get this over with" before exiting the car. Putting on her smile once again she turned back facing the car to pull out her small bag of notebooks and pens, slowly counting in her head.

'One... Two..'

Keiichi Higurashi


Keiichi had expected to be the most exited about the new arrivals when he sent the text. But seeing his younger siblings actually step outside first made him question the belief for a bit- he wasn't jealous just glad for the apparent enthusiasm. He followed the others out and found the wait surprisingly short as the car was coming up the drive towards the mansion at this point in time.

" Well what do you know, we made it just in the nick of time." Keiichi ended up with a silly grin on his face that was oddly suited for his usual laid back manner of speaking. When the limo stopped, he took it upon himself to open the door for the ladies inside.

"Hellooo <3! Welcome to the family my lovely sisters. I'm Keiichi, age 24 and it's a pleasure to meet you~." Keiichi's greeting was saturated with his 'affectionate big brother' tone but somehow lost none of it's usual playful undertone. "I hope the drive was pleasant, ah let me help." The second part of the sentence was said in time with an outstretched hand to offer assistance in exiting the vehicle. By this point his grin had evolved into a full on goofball smile, "though if you want, we can carry you too. After all, you three look rather tired." Keiichi's eyes briefly widen when he realized something.

" Have you girls eaten, would you rather go to bed, bathe? Sorry- I'm new to the whole thing about having sisters." Once more his face went through a contortion of emotion, in this case a show of concern and then a sincere yet embarrassed apology. He wished for something of a life line at this point. One of his brothers pitching in (or Ky showing up)...a response from the girls- even a member of the staff coming round would have been nice.

However from an artistic point of view, the delay was rather useful. It let him get a good look at the three girls he was addressing. Rather unexpectedly, he noted that they were shorter than himself- which really only came to mind since he wasn't the tallest in the family.The common hair color was something of a brown-orange hybrid which he had to keep from ogling to get an exact shade. The shortest one had something of a new kittenish look about her. A glimpse at the tallest really only caught something on her left pinky- a discoloration of skin in a rather uniform manner. The girl herself had an air around her that made Keiichi REALLY want to play. The final one...the one with twin tails- oddly enough Keiichi felt she'd be the most fun to tease. Without him realizing it, Keiichi's eyes developed a slightly mischievous gleam.

(OOC: I apologize it's not a pretty post.. but my hard drive crashed and it's rough to post on my sister's iPad)

ImageNemui fidgeted for a few moments, debating on how to answer her sister's question. Mari dropped it like Nemui never heard her, but she did. She stared down at the floor of the car, finally coming up with a suitable response, "I.. want to make a good first impression. With my glasses... I can't approach our new brothers confidently.. I want a fresh start.." She replied to both of her sisters, but began blushing as Ayano said she looked adorable in them. Her cheeks flushed and a pout crossed the youngest's features, "Oiii Ayano-san, don't mock me like that.." She mumbled, but laughed afterwards. She couldn't get mad at her sisters even if she wanted to. They were too supportive and loving for Nemui to take their teases seriously. Though since she was a victim of bullying, she wasn't even aware it was a genuine compliment. She was unable to accept them from anyone, even her cherished family.

Then she continued on about the tests, "We can study through it. I promise you'll pass." She gave her sister a reassuring smile, still slightly flushed, "What are sisters for if not to remind you of important moments and support you through them?" She responded, but she was cut short of her pep talk when Keiichi opened the door.

Golden orbs widened as she stared up at the eldest brother, face flushing even more as he offered his hand to her sisters and herself. Ayano left the car on her own it seemed so Nemui took his hand hesitantly, stepping out of the car, eyes landing on each of her new siblings.. The darker haired twin seemed to be carrying the lighter haired one, then there was a taller silver haired male, she didn't get to continue her observation because Keiichi's next words caught her completely off guard. Carried!?!? She instinctively took a step back from her new brother, releasing his hand prior to her skittish behavior, "T-that's not n-necessary.." she responded, turning her gaze to the ground. He's nice and all.. but that's a little more than I expected.. Keiichi's enthusiastic and flirtatious behavior was throwing Nemui for a loop. We're his sisters.. not suitors to be swooned.. She was still flustered, but she noticed his apology.

"You're fine.. I hope we can all get along and one day.. be a close family.. but isn't there six of you?" She responded nervously, bowing politely to each of her brothers, "I apologize.. I'm Yonkoma Nemui, age 18.. and I'm a senior at Arisu Academy.." She introduced herself, standing upright and taking in the rest of her siblings. The youngest girl's blush was hardly noticeable now, but when her eyes landed on Yushiro, her expression was like she'd seen a ghost. ....Y-yushiro-kun... She'd completely forgotten that Yushiro was going to be one of her siblings. She stared for what felt like an hour, though it was actually only a minute or two. I'm going to get beat up for this.. Yushiro is the most popular guy in school.. She turned her gaze back to Keiichi, much paler than before.

"I-I'd prefer to get settled in.. I-I can't sleep until my belongings are in place... plus I have homework and I've got to s-study.." she practically zoomed back to the limo to retrieve her belongings. Highschool is going to murder me.. She thought frantically. Maybe no one will find out if I don't show up with Yushiro.. I could always ride my bike.. it's just an hour from my house.. so twenty minute drive from here.. It's not that far...

She retrieved her bags of clothes, smiling weakly to her brothers, "W-where are our rooms..? If that's not too bold of me..?" Keiichi's devilish expression wasn't caught by the naive girl, she was focused on escaping to her room after she'd laid eyes on Yushiro. She was behaving like she was afraid of him or something. Sure she seemed timid toward Keiichi, but even his flirtations didn't draw the same response. Just eye contact with Yushiro and she was ready to flee to her room. Why??

ImageTouya frowned a bit, adjusting his glasses while still supporting Arashi's weight on his back. He didn't mind carrying his twin like this. They were far too close to feel inconvenienced by each other. He'd gladly wait on Arashi hand and foot, because he could rely on Arashi to do the same. That was just their relationship.

Touya smiled a bit, "There he is. Nice to see you're among the living.. Ara-chii.." He chuckled. Though his expression soured at the sight of the car. Arashi's words only voiced his inner turmoil, "Ah." He replied in agreement. Touya rarely got along with anyone, particularly girls. Sure he'd had a few flings, but he'd never been with a woman in a serious relationship. He couldn't keep them. They'd get jealous of Arashi or Arashi wouldn't like her.. and no one came before his brother. No one. If he had to choose between anyone in the world and Arashi, he'd choose before he even batted in eyelash. His answer would be the same regardless of the cost. Arashi was the most important person in his life and he'd destroy anyone who tried to change that. By any means necessary.

He merely adjusted his glasses again, "Just tread carefully.. do what you will..." He whispered back to his twin, "But don't fall in love.. they'll only break you in the end.." He added, his eyes narrowing at the girls exiting the car, "I don't want to destroy a girl.. but I will if I must." He mumbled, before forcing a kind face. He didn't want ti displease Keiichi or Ryushi, so he played the part of a kind brother, albeit standoffish.

Touya kept his temper in check around his twin, but there had been several occassions at school when the twins would be in separate classes that Touya would wreak havoc upon any and all who crossed his path. Eventually they decided to just keep the twins together, since it kept Touya out of trouble and the school from expelling him. It was incontrovertible, if left alone with one of the sisters he'd likely lose his temper and do something to harm or upset them. He's only fought with boys up until now, but he's made enough girls cry over the years as well.

He hugged his brother back this time, smiling a bit as well, "I won't let them just waltz in and change everything.." He added, before faking an excited tone, "Welcome, it's nice to finally meet you three~!" He chimed, but turned his attention back to his brother, "If they do anything to hurt you or your feelings... promise you'll tell me." He smiled, "They're not our sisters so do as you please.. I intend to.. just be cautious."

"Honestly food doesn't sound bad, though he's not exactly extending that invitation towards us.." Then his eyes met Yushiro, "Oii.. Otōto... Why's the midget so frightened by you.. what did you do? Steal her calculus book?" He smirked teasingly, playing on the fact that Nemui looked like a nerd. Then he lightly chuckled, "That's not like you Yushi-kun~" He taunted, using the nickname his fan group called him. Touya couldn't count how many times those girls followed his little brother home, "Have you laid any of those girls yet? I mean they're all dying to rip your clothes off~" He continued. Touya had a habit of never knowing when to shut up or stop terrorizing others. He lacked the empathy for those he taunted and didn't care or just didn't notice how cruel he was truly being. Though he was a bit narcisstic and a self admitted sadist. Perhaps it was all intentional.

Mari glances briefly at the hand that is placed on her shoulder as Ayano voices agreement that there is no need for Nemui to wear her glasses. Even with her siblings, though she loves them quite truly, the middle child is not overly fond of people entering anything she might consider to be her personal space, unless it is while she is fighting for one reason or another. As it is her sister, she shifts slightly out from under the hand rather than saying something about it. It is true that the girl dotes on her younger sister, and is fond of her elder sister, but she isn't the sort to be quite clear with these affections. Thus, while Ayano tells Nemui that she looks adorable in her glasses, Mari merely glances out the window once more. Only when they pull back into the driveway does Mari return her attention towards her sisters, catching Ayano's reluctant sort of expression just before the eldest sister exits the car. Nemui is the second to get out, and then Mari, following behind them with the sort of impartial expression that one tends to adopt just before forming opinions.

And the first person to present themselves for what may be referred to as "the initial judgments" from hereon out is a young man, perhaps a few years her senior, with slightly curly hair and eyes that would likely look very drowsy, were they not glinting with some sort of mischief. Mari had ignored his outstretched hand when getting out of the vehicle, a flick of her eyes serving as a 'no thank you', though a rather minimal one indeed. While Nemui reacts in a flustered manner to the offer of being carried, Mari only raises an eyebrow. Partially at the strangeness of the offer, and partially because the rather lean-looking young man doesn't seem as though he would be able to carry them, somewhat short though they may be [a genetic trait, clearly, though Ayano is a bit taller].

Taking a cue from Nemui, Mari also introduces herself, though briefly, "Yonkoma Mari. Twenty years old." Already, she is glancing towards the ones who seem to be twins, remaining with each other in the background. The sort to quite willingly goad people on, it makes sense that she be, at least in her mind, rather mocking. Hanging on to each other like stuffed toys, she observes in an offhand sort of way, feeling that they look somewhat familiar. Perhaps they attended the same school as she, two years ago. The girl doesn't know their ages to know the truth of this. Were she to know their names, it might be easier- perhaps she'd recall a story of semi-feared Touya. Perhaps there were some rumors of a similar nature about herself.

The one she had been looking at, in glasses, greets them with a chiming sort of voice, and thus her gaze slides elsewhere, to see Nemui reacting with fear towards one of the brothers. Instantly, she jumps to the conclusion that he may be one of her tormentors. Mari's eyes narrow marginally, and were this a cartoon, static might have crackled around her. More likely than not, her first impression will prove to be an unlikable one.

Image "Have you laid any of those girls yet? I mean they're all dying to rip your clothes off~" Tou continued, but this time Arashi noticed where it was going. Any other day this wouldn't bother him at all, he'd just let it happen. But they made a promise to behave so, Arashi did what he thought was the best way.

He gave his brother a light squeeze on his shoulders with his arm and turned his face into Tou's. Arashi's eye narrowed a bit and he kisses the edge of his lips. "Tou, the promise." He looked at his brother with a loving look in his visible eye. He cupped Tou's face in his hands, resting his forehead against his. "We have to wait." Arashi smirked slightly and let go of his brother.

"SO! Ladies." Arashi dusted off his sleeves, walking over to them with wide arms. "Welcome to our home, got any questions, please hesitate to ask them." Arashi laughed as he joked and held up one finger with an eye winked. "Unless you really want me to help you." His voice became flirty. "Oh yeah!" He shouted before the girls can respond in a loud voice. He rushed over to Keii and took his hands in his. "You said food right?! Im starving! Feed me!" He grabbed tightly and started to tug Keii inside. "The others can take care of the girls! Hurry hurry!" Arashi's plan to get Tou to be himself with the girls was already in play, but he really was hungry. And so were the others, so the sooner he got Kei cooking the better. He looked over at his twin as he tugged on Kei to come, and smiled. "Hurry up old man!"

-Remembering.
"One day you two will have to split up and settle down. You can't be together forever, do you understand Arashi? Touya will someday find someone he loves, just like you will. That will be the day, when you will have to accept it to happen." Their mother spoke to Arashi as she got ready for her date with father.

Arashi who was sitting on the floor playing with a wooden toy car, had stopped to look up at his mother. "But, mama, how can you ask me something like that!" He got up and threw the toy car down. "Toutou is my other half! We don't need stupid girls! Im gonna marry Toutou myself! Im gonna make him my bride." He started to cry rubbing his eyes. "Arashi doesn't want to be away from Toutou, mama, you can't make us break up! Mama you can't!" Running out of the room in tears.

"Arashi!" She yelled at him as he left.
-

Even before he understood what his words meant, he was saying embarrassing stuff like that. As he grew older he realized that when you are a kid, you say what you mean, you do what you mean, you show what you mean, everything becomes so honest, without thinking of the consequences after. When you are a kid you just do it because you believe it is right to do it. Arashi, stuck to his playful kid side, he figured since if you have to be a kid to be honest, he will just have to act like one forever. Thus bringing out his outgoing and overjoyed side of him. It was something he didn't want to leave behind. If he left that behind, he felt like he was leaving his feelings for his brother behind, doing something like that,...well it caused more pain than dying or being stabbed. Wasn't a feeling of guilt or anything to that. It was a feeling of leaving himself behind or losing a loved one forever.

Keiichi watched his brothers have there fine with a 'how nice, they get along' expression on his face. Well at least from his perspective the initial greetings hadn't gone too badly. Though he was denied the full interaction time he wanted due to the twins dragging him from the scene. He did't offer resistance since he couldn't over power the combo but still put up a show.

"Old man?! Ni-chan (referring to himself) doesn't remember teaching you to speak with that mouth. I'm only four years older than you-oi Yushiro you should be nicer to girls. If you needed a Calculus book I could have given you mine, complete with notes." Keiichi didn't know whether the implication in regards to his youngest brother's behavior was true or not but decided to cover that base anyways. To complete his mock tantrum Keiichi crossed his arms before speaking with a pouting face.

"Arashi, why can't you ask in a cuter manner if you want me to cook? At this rate Ni-chan will make something you don't like as punishment." His face softened when turning to the sister trio, "Anything you want me to cook Nemui-chan, Mari-chan, Chi-nee-chan (Ayano)?" He boastfully pat on his chest while being dragged, "Ni-chan is very confident in his skills to feel free to ask me for anything- even if it's not food related." At this point he finally offered resistance to being taken from the scene, after all he needed to listen for the response. That and he had a serious weakness to being called 'Ni-chan' or any other cute way to refer to one's big brother.

After all, he'd essentially been taken to the door at this point- he'd continue to the kitchen on his own from here. He just wanted to hear if the girls wanted something...and hopefully someone would say the words he wanted to hear. On an unconscious level he began to tie up his hair. In response his eyes picked up a sharper glint and his demeanor became more serious. Since he'd bragged, he intended to go all out anyways and his brothers would know the previous threat was a hollow one. Hopefully the boys would help the girls settle in while he was busy cooking, but he intended to get some one-on-one time with them later anyways.

"You can stop dragging me. There's no way I'm going to hold back at this point." This last sentence was said at a volume so it wouldn't carry. But unlike his usual manner of speaking, the words came out quick,clear and completely calm. If anything, it was only during times like this that Keiichi could really be considered a respectable big brother.

Ryushi

Image


(OOC: I changed his color to teal so his words will stick out a lil more.)

After staring at his somewhat empty painting for a few more moments, Ryushi heard his brother's voice faintly, along with the rush of his footsteps down the hall and out the door. He knew very well that his brother's reaction must mean one thing, his new sisters have arrived. Ryushi gulped. "... What if I mess up? What if they don't like me? What if they won't consider me as a brother? What if..." He let out a frustrated groan as he started to irk himself with his thoughts. After running a comb through his hair once more, he took in a deep breath, and stepped out of his room.

Ryushi could feel himself dragging his weight along the way to greet his new sisters. He hated having to socialize with others, not including his brothers, that is. Nevertheless, it was only proper to at least introduce himself to his new sisters, even if that meant stepping out of his comfort zone. With that thought in mind, he turned the doorknob to the front door and jerked it open with more force than needed.

Ryushi kept his head low as he approached the three females. He already felt his hands trembling in his pocket, despite the fact that he was 10 yards away from the limo. "Don't screw up... just say what you rehearsed in your mind... don't mess up... you can do it, Ryushi!" He thought to himself, trying to give himself support as he picked his head up to look at each individual female.

Ryushi felt the color in his cheeks as he looked over the three young women. They all had their own striking beauty. The smallest one had golden-honey like eyes, along with crimson glasses, making her eye color only pop out more. Her hair color was nothing he's ever seen before, however the shade reminded him of a sunset. She seemed to be slightly timid at the moment, which made Ryushi's nerves settle down slightly. At least he wasn't the only nervous one.

With that, his attention turned to the one who appeared to be the second eldest. She may not of had much of an unique hair color or eye color than the smaller one, but something about her caught Ryushi's attention. It seemed that there was so much more to her than what meets the eye. The thought sent a shiver of excitement down his spine. Ryushi didn't know what it was yet, but he had a feeling that he'd find out soon.

Last, but not least, the one who appeared to be the eldest of them all. She was a good height out of the three, and built quite nicely. She seemed to be a mix of the two- having Mari's eye color, and Nemui's hair color. For some reason, she gave off a comforting aura, something Ryushi hasn't felt in a long time. Maybe these new sisters won't be so bad at all.

Now came the hardest part of all. He cleared his throat and took in a deep breath. "... H-Hello! My n-name is... i-is Ryushi! I'm 19." He said with a forced, crooked smile. Ryushi held out his hand for any of the females to shake, but found his hand was trembling. He quickly shoved his hand into his pocket before any of them could shake it, giving off a bashful expression. "I... I hope we get along well!" He choked out, taking a step back. Oh, how he wanted to run back to his room, he was just so embarrassed!

Yushiro followed Keiichi outside. He was practically skipping due to that large amount of bounce in his step. His guitar swung along behind him, hitting his back softly with every step he took. He continued to hum a tune, his voice clearly audible. He stood beside his brothers as his new sisters stepped out of the car, somewhat aided by Keiichi. He rocked back and forth on his heels, grinning widely with excitement. He gave up on trying to look, calm, cool and mature. Right now, he looked more like an energetic puppy than a grown-up brother.

Yushiro’s eyes widened when he saw the girls step out. Wooow… they’re so much better than I thought they would be! He instantly jumped forward to greet them, but was quickly cut off by his other brothers introducing themselves. He stood back, pouting, his arms crossed across his chest. From his position, he quietly observed.

The eldest, Ayano, was pleasant to look at, with soft yet piercing brown eyes and a sweet smile. She looked like the older-sister-type, if there was such a thing. Like someone you could come talk to if you just needed to pour your heart out.

The middle child, Mari, looked like she could use some serious hugging. She glared at Yushi like he had done something awful, which made him lean back slightly, staring back at her with wide, confused eyes. Everything she said was short, simple, and to the point. Yushiro hoped she would be a bit more open towards them after a little while…

Then there was Nemui. Yushi had actually gone to school with her for many years, and the two had barely even spoken to each other. She was absolutely adorable, like a little doll or plushie that Yushi just wanted to hold and hug. She seemed very embarrassed for some reason, and Yushiro couldn’t figure out why…

"Oii.. Otōto... Why's the midget so frightened by you.. what did you do? Steal her calculus book? That's not like you Yushi-kun~ Have you laid any of those girls yet? I mean they're all dying to rip your clothes off~

Yushiro snorted, rolling his eyes. He was used to Touya’s behavior by now. “Not, I have not. You shouldn’t be talking anyways, Touya.” Yushi grumbled, not necessarily because of the fact that he was still a virgin, but more because that was all people seemed to talk about with him. It wasn’t his fault, really, everything he did was on instinct. It just so happened that his instinct happened to be the thing that all girls liked.

Finally, after Ryushi spoke, Yushiro stepped forward, in front of the three girls. “Hello, my name is Yushiro, and its very nice to finally meet you all.” He bowed slightly before standing up straight, shifting the guitar on his back. He flashed a friendly, open smile in their direction. “I can’t wait to get to know you all better, Onee-chans.” He chuckled, though it came out more like a giggle, as he said the last part. He continued to bounce back and forth on his heels. “While Keiichi cooks, would you like me to show you to your rooms?” He asked, gesturing towards the house. “I’ll help you carry your things as well if you’d like.”

ImageThe dark haired twin welcomed them, but something about Touya made her skin crawl. She didn't respond except with a weak smile to her new older brother. Nemui clung to her bags, wishing to simply flee to her room and bury her nose in her school work and manga until she fell asleep. Then the lighter haired twin roared to life as well. Though he seemed to be openly flirtatious, far more than even Keiichi. She averted her gaze nervously, but her discomfort was short lived due to the twins dragging the eldest towards the entrance of their home. The mention of food seemed to bring out their forceful side, literally tugging the eldest along despite his protests and struggles. Even going to the lengths of calling him old. Keiichi didn't exactly look old to Nemui, but she wasn't exactly one to judge someone's age based on appearance.

Mari introduced herself as well, causing a lighthearted smile to cross Nemui's lips. The fact that her older sister was introducing herself willingly instead of being coerced into it, made her hopeful. Perhaps this was exactly what her little family needed. She giggled a bit, noticing that Mari's attention had been on the twins for quite some time. Does she find Touya and Arashi attractive or something? Nemui asked herself in her head, giving Mari a confused look, one eyebrow quirked at her sibling. She dropped it for the moment, noticing Ryushi again. He seemed to be just as nervous as she, if not more. It reassured her that she wasn't the only one who'd rather be somewhere else at the moment.. He's only a year older than me?? He's so tall compared to Keiichi.. She thought eyeing him for a moment innocently. She shook his hand, seeing as she was too bashful to reply to Yushiro or the twins, "We'll all just have to do our best then, ne?" She laughed nervously, turning her attention to Keiichi on the matter of dinner.

Cuter manner? Nemui asked herself, catching Keiichi's complaint, tilting her head in utter bafflement. Each and every one of her new brothers were attractive in their own right. Though most men didn't take well to being called cute, they all had nice qualities. At least her mangas told her men didn't enjoy being called cute. She wasn't actually sure seeing as she'd never had a boyfriend or someone she was interested in that way period. Sure she'd had her crushes, but she didn't have the confidence to ever pursue or actually talk to them, "A-anything that doesn't involve leeks..." Nemui stuttered loud enough for Keiichi to hear from the door, uncomfortable with the fact she had to raise her tone louder than a hushed whisper.

"A-Arigatou, Keiichi Ni-san.." Nemui replied with a grateful smile. As she noticed his put up hair, Keiichi actually began to look much older and serious. He actually looked like a responsible adult. She wondered which side of Keiichi was the real one, or if he was a jumble of the two personalities he was currently displaying. Would he really make food they didn't like as punishment? Hopefully he doesn't mean that.. I'd die if he made leeks as punishment. It caused a cringe from the tiny otaku, before clearing her throat quietly. I'll have to be on my best behavior. Though she'd never even received detention, let alone anything noteworthy of punishment within her household.

After Ryushi spoke, Yushiro stepped forward, forcing her attention on him. She smiled wearily, refusing eye contact as she grabbed her final bag. She was a bit relieved that he offered to show them to their rooms. He seemed to be quite enthusiastic and hyper, practically jumping in place. She nodded quickly, a small grateful smile sent in Yushiro's direction. Though she couldn't help glancing over her shoulder, she knew for a fact that a few of Yushiro's fangirls stalked him. She'd seen pictures of him in their lockers that he definitely didn't consent to..

"Y-yushiro-kun never stole anything from me... H-he didn't do anything wrong.. It's nothing really.." She finally responded to Touya and Keiichi's discussion, in attempt to clear the innocent boy's name. She felt a blush creep on her face, embarrassed that her first time technically speaking to Yushiro was to clear up a misunderstanding she'd accidentally started, "..Sorry for this misunderstanding.." She bowed politely before facing the others to explain her fearful expression "I just remembered I... uhm.." She trailed for a lie, "Have a lot of studying to do.. my expression had nothing to do with Yushiro-kun."

#, as written by Lorrim
Ky Higurashi


Sip.

Ky took a sip of his coffee that he bought en route to his home to meet his new sisters. Normally, Ky would not make such a selfish detour, for fear of putting himself further behind schedule. But these circumstances were special. He mentally weighed the Pros and Cons of buying this coffee while in the taxi, figuring that it was better to be awake during the inevitable social interactions between him and his new sisters. Finally reaching a decision to buy the chemical aid, a look of disdain appeared on Ky’s face when he noticed that the taxi driver already passed the only cafe on the way back to Sakura Square, forcing them to double back and waste even more time. Despite this very long detour, Ky did not regret it. Sure, being able to form coherent sentences is a valuable skill, but the energy needed to keep up with his brother’s antics was, to Ky, priceless.

Brrrrrrrr. Brrrrrrr. Brrrrrr.

“...Speaking of antics,” Ky muttered, as his cell phone vibrated. He already knew it was from one of his brothers. Not bothering to see which one sent he, he opened up the text, and saw a picture of three young women. One looked disinterested, another looked annoyed, and the last looked like she wanted to turn into a tomato and crawl under the nearest boulder. “...Heh. If that last girl has any hope surviving in this family, she really needs to...ketchup...to the two other girls,” Ky said, chuckling at his (a little bit) lame joke. “Any way...this is what my new sisters look like, huh? I wonder what they are like...”

Ky wandered into another one of his hyperfoci, making up various scenarios and personality archetypes the three sisters could be, to kill time before the taxi takes him to his home. He knew it was futile to make such presumptions before he even got to know the girls, but he did it anyway, to pass the time. It wasn’t until the driver said “We’re here,” three times to Ky before he realized that he was outside his house. Slightly blushing, he quickly nodded, gave the driver a large bill, telling him to “Keep the change,” and swiftly exited the vehicle. With his eyes locked onto his shoes and the apparently interesting crack in the pavement, his gaze didn’t wander to what was in front of him until the taxi drove away.

“A limo? Heh. Dad sure doesn’t slack when it comes to pampering these girls” Ky stated as he saw the limo. His embarrassment all but gone, his focus was turned to the events unfolding before him. He witness Touya and Arashi doing their normal teasing to any girl they meet, Keiichi offering to carry their luggage, Ryushi stumbling over his obviously rehearsed words, and Yushiro being...well...Yushiro. Seeing as they have the situation under control (and Ky uses this word loosly), Ky opted to not say anything for the time being, and observe while sipping his coffee.

...Of course, that was his plan. But seemingly, without fail, every time Ky conducts a plan with his brothers involved, it never goes according to plan. By the time his attention wandered over to finally see his new sisters with his own eyes, he saw the youngest, and blurted a word out.

“...Chibi.”

Ryushi

Image


Ryushi's eyes widened slightly in surprise at Nemui's words. Honestly, he didn't expect her to shake his hand, or reply in a full sentence for that matter. His smile suddenly became genuine. "Y-Yes! W... We will! Or-- I will, a-at least!" Ryushi let out a sigh of relief, everything is going according to plan so far! Sure, he stuttered and made things a little awkward, but he pulled it off.

"Alright Ryu, next line..." He thought to himself as he opened his mouth to speak up once again, but before he could do so, his brother stepped up and offered to show them to their rooms.


Ryushi couldn't believe how accurate his brother's words were to his thoughts, not including the happy-go-lucky personality he was giving off. He grunted slightly, taking a step back to let his brother do his thing. Ryushi felt his heart drop, along with his expression. He was so confident at the moment, the feeling was almost new to him and made him feel overjoyed; Until Yushiro suddenly came up and took the words out of his mouth, along with his 'spotlight' I suppose you could call it.

Even so, he didn't blame his brother, it was just the way he is. Strong, confident, smooth and energetic. Practically everything Ryushi wasn't. That's why Ryushi always looked up to his brothers... er... or in this case, down. Another thing that separated himself from his brothers is his height. Ryushi hated how tall he was, it made him look intimidating, when really, he's only a gentle giant. All he ever truly wanted to be was like any of his brothers but himself. However, that seemed nearly impossible at this point.

Now feeling humiliated and almost practically panicking because he couldn't find any other words to say, Ryushi turned on his heal and rushed back into the house. "Why does this always have to happen? Why can't... why can't I talk to anyone? Why aren't I... anything but... this!" He mumbled bitterly to himself, loosening his tie and slowly making his way down the hall to his own room. He knew the eldest of his brothers was busy in the kitchen, but Ryushi knew that if Keiichi made anything for him, then he would knock on his door to tell him.

He locked his room door and flopped down onto his bed, feeling exhausted from the recent events that took place. That was more than enough excitement for one day. Ryushi glanced over at his painting once again and sighed. "I'm like that painting... calm scenery... not bad to look at... but something is missing to make it perfect." He thought to himself, thinking his words were awfully cliche. Ryushi buried his face into one of the pillows that laid at the head of his bed and groaned in frustration.

ImageAyano glanced at each member of the household as they came out to greet the trio of sisters. The oldest, as far as Ayano knew, was Keiichi. He didn't seem all that bad, and he seemed to be rather... Interesting, as did many of the siblings that greeted them. His apology was one Ayano could relate to, as she could barely open her own mouth to utter an hello.

Nemui odd reaction to seeing whom Ayano could only assume was this "Yushiro" fellow. Though every ounce of her being nearly screamed at her to jump to conclusions, to protect her little sister, Ayano tried to hide her glare the best she could as she glanced at Touya. No, she didn't find his "tease" humorous, even if it wasn't all her business. Nemui was her little sister, and not a person to be involved in that sort of teasing and whatever the hell you'd call it. Oh how badly he was already starting to get on her nerves, and she barely had spoken two words. Balling her hands up into fists around her bags, she was quick to release them as she noticed Arashi clinging onto Keiichi, but not before holding onto his, what she could assume, twin. It was funny how easily she was putting names to these faces, especially after she had only done an hour of, ahem, stalking, on the internet. No, no one needed to know about that, at least, she hoped not.

It wasn't until the offer of food was mentioned by Keiichi that she spun over to the man, her eyes nearly sparkling. Food? She liked food, to a point... Not to mention she hadn't eaten since yesterday's lunch, mainly due to her irregular study times. "U-Uh..." Ayano began to slowly perk up, eyeing those around her carefully. "Something... Sweet...ish?" Ayano weakly asked, a shy smile on her face as she quickly was about to muster the ability to introduce herself when Ryushi had come over, stuttering and clearly nervous. Ayano smiled gently, nodding her head at her as she was quick to shush her own words. Next, Yushiro had walked over, offering to take their bags as Ayano quickly shook her head.

"No, it's okay! Really. It's not like my hands are broken or something." Ayano shrugged, only to let out a relieved sigh as Nemui spoke up about the whole textbook. "A-Ah, for a moment I thought there might of actually been an issue..." Ayano mumbled, before her head spun once again to the blonde man behind her. What was his name again...? "Oh... Hello there." A small wave as she looked back to Ryushi who was retreating inside rather quickly. What was that about? Why was she thinking of so many questions?

"This family... It seems like it'll be an odd one, won't it?" Ayano asked over to Mari as she put on the biggest smile, be it a tad forced. "I'm sorry for being so rude! I'm Ayano, age twenty thr- Wait a minute..." Did Ayano hear the word chibi...? With that, Ayano glanced over to Nemui with her eyes that only suggested hugs, more hugs, and then the process of prying Ayano off of the youngest girl. Luckily Ayano actually was trying to restrain herself at the moment.

ImageTouya's eyes barely widened from the kiss, obviously not surprised nor appalled by his twin's behavior. If anything, it seemed to calm the rowdy brother's teasing behavior, "Alright, I've got it Ara-chii.." He yawned aloud afterward, a small frown on his face. He was going to wrap a lazy arm around his brother, but he found more entertainment in Arashi's next idea. He merely adjusted his glasses, gazing upon Arashi's introduction. Heh, he's so much better with girls than I am.. Touya thought, proud of his brother's social skills. Though Touya was always the rowdy trouble making younger twin. Sure he held a mature air about him, but he was still quite violent when it came to protecting his brothers and his pride.

As soon as Arashi began tugging Keiichi, he jumped in to help, "Hayaku, Hayaku!" He ushered his eldest brother to hurry, "We're all starving Kei-chaaaan." He whined, appearing just as childish as Arashi when they worked as a team, "We'll do the dishes if you hurry.." He smirked, returning to his manipulative behavior, but only long enough to see if his bribe would work. If not he'd have no choice but to carry Keiichi into the kitchen full force with Arashi. Though it seemed that the eldest caved to their wishes, asking the new girls if they wanted anything in particular, "Yes old man, Ni-san needs to feed his Otōto-chiis before we starve.." He frowned, though it came out more like a pout. The eldest throwing an equally childish tantrum at first made the older siblings look more like a joke than anything.

"We accept your surrender." He grinned, wrapping a lazy arm around Arashi's shoulder, kissing him on the cheek. This was nothing out of the ordinary for the twins, but they knew most outsiders would be disgusted. Their mother always was. Though Touya never gave a damn about anyone's opinion, especially their mother's. He loved her dearly, but she never understood him.

He noticed the eldest girl's glare, Ayano? Maybe... He wasn't exactly clear on her name, but he just smiled back sweetly, mostly to spite her hateful expression. He lived on causing conflict, so the fact that she appeared to already despise him brought joy to his heart. He was barely trying so far, so it was a bit refreshing that his efforts were already growing. He kept his eyes on her for a moment before closing his eyes. Though he was cut short as Ryushi began his introduction. He let his shy little brother speak, a small grin appearing on his face. Ryushi was his second favorite brother, following Arashi of course. His shyness just was hard to bully.

Once his younger brother was done, Touya opened his mouth to speak again, "How rude of me. I forgot to tell my name earlier. I'm Higurashi Touya, age twenty. Younger twin to Arashi here. Please call me Touya. No nicknames." He smirked, eyes on his twin now, "And I can prove to be...quite helpful if approached properly." His tone was a bit lower as he explained his willingness to help, but it seemed to come with an unspoken price.

He noticed that Ryushi fled the scene to return to his room, giving Arashi a worried expression, "You got things here with Kei-chan? I have to go check on Ryu-chii.." He offered, worried about his timid brother, "Yushi-kun, and Ky-chan can handle our sisters.."

He ran off as quickly as he'd spoken his plan to Arashi, up the two flights of stairs with little effort despite his nerdy appearance. He approached Ryushi's door quietly, knocking first, "Oiii Ryu-chii.. It's Tou... Let me in, ne?" He called, abandoning his hyperactive attitude and returning to his usual self, "Let's talk about it, yeah?"

Image Making eye contact with his twin as he intro duced himself. It kind of amused him when he said no nicknames. Arashi called Touya, Tou for so many years, sometimes he'd forget his brothers full name even. He shrugged and reached for a piece of fruit. "Yeah sure." He let his twin go to Ryu.

He wasn't one to pay attention to his surroundings, which is another reason why his eyes were always on where his twin went. Or his eyes were always on the person talking to him, maybe even about him. Still for him to pay attention to much wasn't too impossible. He still only saw what he would see. It wasn't that he hated people, actually he didn't mind people one bit. Unlike his twin, he was the social one. He had to be like that, he was everything his twin wasn't, just like his twin was for him. Yet sometimes the roles would switch and when that would happen, that wasn't a good thing, not at all. Another reason why the twins are so hard to handle.

Taking a bite of the peach he had grabbed from the bowl on the counter he leaned against the wall eating quietly. Distracting himself so he would cause to much trouble, he decided to eat something. He watched as the commotion went on with the others. His eyes slowly landed on the eldest. Ayano, he thinks is her name. The one who glared at his twin. She was the prettiest, of the three. She had looks like Keii, but only didn't take care of them. He looked at the second eldest, to him she seemed a bit average, but nice looking like the eldest none the less. Again she didn't bother to take care of her looks. And the youngest one hid behind her glasses, just like his twin did. So he understood her position to feel the need to hide behind them. The girls weren't really what he had expected. He wasn't disappointed or anything like that. It was just different all together.

He walked into the kitchen throwing away the rest of the peach. All of a sudden he didn't feel the need to eat anything. Arashi probably had it the hardest when it came to the girls coming over. But still he pushed through it, trying to go through it as if it was nothing. He hid his emotions quite well. So there was no need of anyone noticing his uneasiness. So he did what he always did and smiled as he walked out of the kitchen. "So would you girls like to see your rooms, or eat first?"

It was best to let them pick what they wanted first. Just to make them feel more welcomed to choose. For the girls he felt it best to make them feel a little at easy in a house full of men. He rubbed the back of his neck and chuckled. Three little women in a house full of wolves, it amused him none the less. It was like the three bigs and the wolf story. And now he had pictured them as three little pigs and tried his darndest not to laugh.

As of yet, Mari can't help but observe that the defining trait of this family seems to be a sort of childishness. She has no inherent problem with childishness, of course, but theirs is distributed in such a way so that it occasionally seems fake, or heartless, or even plain naive. It makes it rather difficult to quite make judgements, though she has already taken a disliking to the twin in the spectacles. Ayano appears to have similar inclinations towards him, likely due to the less than tactful comment that he had none-too-subtly made. Mari wonders if perhaps it is time that she begin taking on more hours at the bakery, so that she might be able to save up enough money to begin renting her own apartment. She had hoped to wait a year, having begun a little nest egg of sorts for it, but these brothers are making her think that perhaps a little nudge might be necessary.

Hardly able to keep up with their pace of attention, demands, and generally confusing mannerisms, Mari resigns to silence. This is not particularly atypical of her, and is perhaps for the best. Had she elected to speak, the words might very well have been biting, and hardly helpful as far as creating a warm atmosphere goes. She's used to chaos, of course, but this place is already beginning to seem very much a mad house.

There seemed a brief moment where the elder one, who tied up his hair and addressed himself in third person, seemed to have a glint of seriousness, but Mari can't quite tell. She far prefers straightforward people to whatever breed these brothers are part of them. There is no doubt that her mother would have fallen for a father of these types, though. It would have been icing on the cake that was the job opportunities their father presented, no doubt. Not that it mattered- if the Higurashi Patriarch was anything like the Yonkoma girls' mother, they wouldn't be seeing him around much anyway. Mari's thoughts are briefly interrupted by a very quiet seeming boy, another brother, coming up and introducing himself. She sort of nods to him, but the gesture is so quick, so careless, that it is hardly worth much. He looks as though he'd shatter should someone touch him. With the exception of Nemui, fragility has always been slightly off-putting to Mari, who has the sensitivity of marble.

Regardless of all of this, Mari does note that Nemui is doing rather well, considering her typical shyness and the suddenness of all the attention and exposure. She still wonders about that boy, the one who is apparently in Nemui's class and had caused such a reaction from her bespectacled sister. Nemui denies him having any fault, but given her nature this does little to comfort Mari.

Perhaps Mari would have been startled at Ryushi running away, had she not been too careless to notice it. Instead, she was distracted by a word that easily was pinpointed by her ears- chibi. There was little doubt that it referred to Nemui, who was admittedly tiny. "Oddish," Mari responds to her elder sister, "Let's hope they don't turn purple and sprout green leaves." She adds under her breath, secretly enjoying her own joke, though it was muttered, and therefore not meant to be shared.

When the question of what they would like to do is brought about once more, Mari finally speaks up. "Rooms first, please," she responds.

Ryushi

Image


(OCC: I tried to reach the word limit, but only got 3/4th the way, I apologize! I worked with what I could!)


Ryushi went into deep thought as he laid on his bed. It was all mostly about his mother, her beautiful smile, her gentle laugh, she seemed perfect... however, she really wasn't. She'd always scold Ryushi for not wanting to talk to others. While his brothers were out playing with friends or talking on the phone, he'd spend most of his time playing by himself. This resulted in his brothers teasing him, however, as they entered high school, the teasing slowly started to stop. No one in his family understood him completely, he knows that not because he's being negative, but he couldn't even understand himself.

His thoughts were suddenly interrupted by the sound of one of his many brothers’ voices, Touya. Ryushi sat up and sighed, running a hand through his hair. "... T-Tou-san? Ah...sure, I guess, come in..." It wasn't normal for Touya to come and talk to Ryushi on his own time; he's always with his beloved twin. However, he did really love Touya, he was his favorite brother when they were able to talk one-on-one.

Ryushi had faint memories of him and Touya as children. Whenever Arashi wasn't around, he'd come straight to him. Oh, how he loved the little time they spent together, play fighting or going outside. He felt like he was normal. Those were the times where he truly laughed and smiled. That is, until Arashi came back and Touya scampered back to him. That'd probably be one of the saddest things for Ryushi to watch. He felt like a temporary replacement. Of course, Ryushi now knows that Touya wasn't trying to do that. Touya loves Ryushi very much and he himself has been trying to return that love as best he could, that goes to all his brothers.

(OOC: being a chemist makes cooking fun but annoying. I go through a similar version of Keiichi's thought process every time the topic comes around...naturally I try to stay out of the kitchen. Last thing I want at the end of my day is more work lol)

Keiichi found himself headed towards the kitchen after he less-than-willingly volunteered to cook dinner this evening. When he finally got into the room he did a quick inventory of the place with a look of utter boredom on his face. Naturally there wasn't a need to do this since their father was paying people to stock the kitchen and even cook. But the cooking staff was always more than willing to let one of the Higurashi's do it anyways. He thought a bit before concluding that he hand done steak in a while.

He set about making rice, and the miso first. Those two things could be added to anything he chose as a meal. That and since this time around one of the staff specially hand pickled and prepared all the ingredients from scratch he was eager to put them to use. During this time he sent a mass text out again to his brothers- one of them was bound to be showing the girls around.

Someone ask girls if they mind beef. Thinking Yoshoku- er Chaliapin Steak and I want to know how cooked everyone wants it.

He used both naming conventions in regards to the dish he was intending to make. At the most basic of levels it was just steak and grilled onions. However, proper preparation of the dish was rather effort intensive in terms of effort. The result would be exceedingly tender and very good, as for those who liked sweets simply incorporating honey would do both that and help soften the meat more due to protease. Given essentially everyone in the house had a sweet tooth, and for consistency he'd be using honey on all the steaks if was making them.

"Oh yeah, Nemui hates leeks, which are in the same family as onions. I can easily do hers with Pineapple and get the same results...though that'd make the dish REALLY sweet." With that in mind he threw out a second test.

Also someone ask Nemui if she minds onions. If she doesn't mind super sweet I can use pineapple instead. Otherwise I can make something else.

He found himself half grimacing yet still smiling at this time. A chef's skill was best shown with a simple dish instead of a complex dish...less ways to compensate for fundamental mistakes. But he didn't have any fear in that department, he just found his treatment of his new sisters somewhat nostalgic yet odd at the same time. After all he'd simply tell one of his brothers to shut up and eat their food anyways at this age, but found himself more willing to make concessions for the girls.

#, as written by Lorrim
Ky Higurashi


Cough.

Ky made a very exaggerated cough in hopes that it covered his “little” outburst. Quickly regaining his composure, he noticed that most of his brothers already took care of preparing the meal. Keiichi attempted to take their belongings, but to no avail. (Ky took note of the girl’s uncomfortable look. Apparently, when Touya goes to “Pick Up girls,” he doesn’t mean it literally).

“...But it seems the most important part, after greeting one’s new sisters, has yet to be accomplished,” Ky said, thinking aloud. “Of course, I can’t trust such an important task to my...dear...brothers. Here, I’ll show you to your rooms,” Ky said as he turned towards Mari, the middle sister. Taking the lead, Ky began walking towards his house.

Actually...It’s their house as well now, isn’t it? Ky thought to himself. He smiled at his small error, because such an insignificant word replacement actually has a significant impact on his daily plans. Questions such as “Do I talk differently to my sisters as I do my brothers?” “Are they as messy as some of my brothers?” “Will they have more substance in their conversation topics than some of my brothers?” began to wander throughout Ky’s mind as he ascended the steps to the living quarters floor of the building. These questions worried, angered, and amused him, for he only just noticed that they were all somehow related to his brothers.

As Ky ascended the stairs, his body went into auto pilot. He took two steps at once because, after taking these stairs to his room countless times, Ky calculated the energy spent VS time saved and decided the latter outweighed the former. Fortunately for Ky, he didn’t have anything to carry. The same couldn't be said about his new sisters. It wasn’t until he got about half way up the stairs did it dawn on Ky. Slightly embarrassed, he stood there, waiting for the girls to catch up. When they did, he adjusted his pace slightly to ensure he didn’t get ahead of them again.

When they finally reached the correct floor, a long hallway was before them, stretching left and right. Ky gestured to the right, and said “My room, as well as my brother’s, are down that way. Your rooms are to the left. My father figured you would all like to sleep near each other, so three adjacent rooms have been prepared for you. Each wasn’t specifically assigned to anyone in particular, so feel free to pick your own rooms. If you have any questions, it would probably be best to ask me. My brothers can be quite the handful. Well then...” Ky looked over his new sisters one last time, bowed slightly, and started walking towards his own room. He took about five step before he turned around. “Oh yes. I forgot. How rude of me. My name is Ky Higurashi, 21 years old. Welcome to Sakura Square.”

“...Chibi.”

Nemui's eyes widened at the word 'chibi'. She looked up the the owner of the voice, blushing a bit and nervously rubbing her neck, "I-I suppose you're right.." She laughed off the comment. It wasn't cruel, it just made her a bit uncomfortable, though she was sure that he didn't mean any harm by the topic.

Then she noticed his cup of coffee. Coffee.. I'd kill for a cup.. She thought enviously, giggling at Ayano and Mari's comments about the new family.

"This family... It seems like it'll be an odd one, won't it?" Ayano asked the middle sister, "Oddish," Mari responded, muttering something Nemui couldn't quite hear. Pokemon..? She thought to herself. She giggled aloud, covering her mouth with her hands. It would be a little funny if the boys all turned into radish looking Pokemon. Ever since playing the video games, she couldn't hear that word clearly without thinking it. Though she wasn't sure if that's what Mari meant. The way that Ayano gazed at her made her chew on her bottom lip. Ayano had a thing, and she always hugged too hard when she got excited. It didn't neccessarily bother her, but now wasn't exactly the time or the place.

Nemui nodded in agreement with her sister, "R-rooms would be great.. I have a lot of studying to do.." She wasn't lying, but she was using studying as an excuse to lock herself up inside of her room. She quirked an eyebrow at Ky curiously, unsure what he meant. He speaks kind of robotically.. it makes him hard to understand, but it's kind of cool. She smiled a bit and nodded as he mentioned showing them to their rooms, "A-arigatou, Onii-san." She vocalized her thanks, following behind him first like a lost kitten. She didn't want to be outside any longer than she had to.

She followed behind, bags held close to her person. I thought Yushiro was taking us.. but this works far better.. His fan club cannot see me with him. She thought with a smile, most of her nervousness gone after they made it indoors. She nearly tripped on one of the steps, but caught her balance. She looked around, hoping that none of them seen his mishap, continuing to follow him. She wasn't sure how far her sisters were behind her, but she just wanted to get to her room and get settled in. This was going to be disastrous if anyone found out she was living in the same complex as Yushiro. This feels like a manga.. all of our brothers are extremely attractive.. if we were anyone else this would crash and burn.. if we were different types of girls, there would be a lot of chaos... we'd fall in love.. or at least horrible impossible crushes..

Nemui laughed a bit as she noticed he'd already made it up the stairs, a bit embarrassed that she'd gotten lost in thought. She adjusted her bags again, looking back to Mari and Ayano, "It's beautiful, huh?" She smiled, the biggest smile since she'd won the science fair last year. Nemui was definitely bothered by their mother's absence, seeing as she got the least amount of time with their mother. As the final child, their mother had no reason to return, she didn't get off work for medical leave. She didn't have more children so after Nemui was old enough, and Ayano was old enough to watch her younger sisters. Their mother rarely returned home after that. She took it pretty hard, always doing her best in hopes of impressing their mother.

Nemui smirked a bit, "Closest to the stairs, called it!" She grinned, spinning on her heels to her sister's, sticking her tongue out. It was possibly the loudest she'd spoke, which was slightly over the recommended indoor voice. She wasn't a loud person at all... Did she ever scream? Though it wasn't a bad thing, most people never even knew she was there, definitely not much of a bother unless she was intending to be. Then she bowed to Ky as she turned around, "Nice to meet you. Yonkoma Nemui, age eighteen." she responded to his introduction, biting her bottom lip. What does he mean by a handful? She shook it off, biting her bottom lip. She'd ask later, now wasn't the time. She wished to get settled in immediately. With that, she said her farewell, "Bye. Oh, and I think it would be a great idea if we all post our phone numbers on the outside of our doors.. we're family now and it'd be great to have each other's numbers in case of emergencies." She spoke to everyone. With that she started toward the room she claimed, "I'll tape mine to my door after I get settled in."

With that the shy girl fled to her room, closing the door behind her and locking it. Once she was sure she was alone, she slid down the door, shaking. That was scary.. She thought exhausted. She'd been exerting herself since she exited the limousine, and now she was worn out. It wasn't like her to talk that much, but she knew first impressions were vital to any sort of relationship. She stood after regaining herself, starting to unpack her manga, putting them on the empty bookshelf along with the books she chose to study with. The topics expanded from Chemistry to Physics, and as far as Advanced Calculus. Once she'd finished that, she put the empty bag in the closet, collapsing on her bed for a quick rest. I can't believe this is what's happened.. Things just got a lot more complicated..
