Introduction

Image
Image
The town of Yamasaki is a peaceful one with a single school for all of the students and one grocery store. Yamasaki is divided into many different neighborhoods and one of these such neighborhoods is referred to as Kita or "Tree Field". In this neighborhood, there are several families with their children. They live their everyday lives in peace. Kita Neighborhood is not well-known in Yamasaki for any of those reasons though. No, Kita is known because everyone in it is so close to one another. Of course, they interact with others in Yamasaki, but what happens in Kita stays in Kita.

There are four very prominent families in Yamasaki. Not all of them are known for their wealth or fame. No, many are known simply because of their kindness or their significance in the town. They are the Mori, the Sato, the Tsukino, and the Yoshida families. They are all very different from one another, but they have one thing in common: they all live in Kita Neighborhood.

ImageImage
The Mori family is very wealthy and known for owning a large majority of Yamasaki. However, they are also known for being a kind family. The Mori mother, {Ami|, owns the only clinic in town and will often give free service to those she knows are in hard times. She also works there with {Sakura} and is a good childhood friend of {Akane}. The Mori father, {Kenta}, still collects rent and some profit from the Yamasaki farmers, but he is by no means greedy. He will help pay for services if the need arises. The family also owns stock and property in other parts of the country and a resort in the United States. They are a family that takes great pride in the fact that they've been around since Yamasaki was practically nothing more than a cluster of houses.

The Mori family has one child, a daughter in high school. Their defining traits have always been blonde hair and bright eyes. You can often find {Ami} at her clinic or {Kenta} at his office next to the Candy Shoppe.

ImageImage
The Sato family is possibly the largest family in Yamasaki. The father, {Ichiro}, owns the only grocery store in town, which provides a fairly good income for the family of seven. The mother, {Sakura}, works in the clinic alongside {Ami}, which means that the Mori and Sato children have grown up around each other, and a good friend of {Miyuki}. The oldest daughter has been accepted to Tokyo University, but she has chosen not to go for another year. The Sato family is well-known for their charity and their children's outstanding achievements.

The Sato family children consists of their college-bound daughter, two high schoolers: a boy and a girl, and a middle schooler boy. Their defining traits are brown hair and dark eyes. {Ichiro} can usually be found at the grocery store and {Sakura} either at home or at the Mori Clinic.

ImageImage
The small Tsukino family is well-known for their community efforts. They are not very wealthy, but they live comfortably. The mother, {Akane}, works in the Sato Grocery Store and is well acquainted with the Sato children. She is also a good childhood friend of {Ami}. On the other hand, you have the father, {Tamaki}, who is the younger brother of the {Miyuki}. He owns the Candy Shoppe, which is a popular hangout for the teenagers and middle schoolers in Yamasaki. You can buy candy, coffee, stationary, and books there.

The Tsukinos only have a son, who is the same age as the oldest Sato child. He is taking a year off from school before attending college. The defining traits of the Tsukino family is black hair and brown eyes. You will most likely find {Tamaki} at the Candy Shoppe and {Akane} at the grocery store.

ImageImage
The Yoshida family is not a known as the rest of the families. However, the mother, {Miyuki} is very well-known, seeing as she is the one of the two police officers in Yamasaki. She also volunteers at the fire station. A few years back, {Miyuki} and her ex-husband divorced and he vanished. It is known that he does not keep in contact with the family or his daughters. {Miyuki} is the older sister of {Tamaki} and a good friend of {Sakura}.

The Yoshida family only consists of {Miyuki} and her fraternal twin middle schooler daughters. Their defining traits are red hair inherited from {Miyuki} and {Tamaki}'s mother. {Miyuki} can often be found at the police station or fire station or possibly visiting her brother at the Candy Shoppe.


ImageImage
Of course, the four families are not the only people that live in Kita. There are also the childhood friend of the families' children and their neighbors. Although not as well-known as the Four Families, these people are still recognized as members of the Kita Neighborhood and are usually good upstanding citizens. There is the other police officer, {Kyo}, and his wife, {Mami}, with their two daughters. The next door neighbors of the Mori family is {Saki}, the waitress at the Candy Shoppe and her only son. The new family down the street with their only daughter. And {Saburo}, the Post Office owner, with his only son.

Like the prominent families, they all play a crucial part in Yamasaki and care greatly about the town.

Yamasaki Academy|8:05|Friday
Ume jumped when the crane landed on her desk, but she recovered quickly, glancing over at Haruka. She'd been too busy daydreaming and not paying attention to the teacher. The only time she actually tried to pay attention was during English. Other than that, she could get by fine with looking back at the lessons in the books when she felt like it. She read the note and scowled after realizing that Mori-senpai was trying to set her up. Still... Spending time with Haruka sounded nice. When the teacher turned around, she scribbled on it quickly and dropped it onto Oshiro's desk.

I wouldn't mind joining, but I confess I don't know much about music.
~Yoshida


She turned back to the window, watching a bird land in its nest and a few cars drive by here and there. With a sigh, she looked at the clock. Only four more hours until lunch... As she waited for Haruka's reply, she tapped the desk in a small, unintentional rhythm.

Kita Neighborhood || Yamasaki Academy || 8:07 AM || Friday

A smirk crossed Haru's lips when it was confirmed that Ume would join. She'd spent so much time trying to get members and ultimately failing that she had practically given up on the Music Club, and now that she had a member, she was confident it would work out. She tossed a similar note across the two desks to Mika simply to confirm that she would join them as well. She then started on as reply to Ume's message.

I'm so glad you're joining, to be honest! And I can teach you about music if you want! I'm better at the guitar, but I know how to play the piano, and that seems like something that would suit you better. I'll tell you more about it at lunch.
Oshiro


Haru refolded the crane and tossed it back onto Ume's desk, trying her best to hide the light girly blush that was finding it's way to her cheeks. She had a reputation to uphold. Why the hell are you blushing anyways Haru?! There's no reason! Haru scolded herself. But then her eyes wandered back to the pretty redhead beside her. ...right? Haru shook her head in frustration. What even?! This wasn't normal. Not normal at all. She looked back to the front and concentrated her thoughts on the lesson, glaring through the whole row in front of her in the process.

The uncanny concentrated glare Haru had going on didn't last long, as she got bored quickly, dozing off into a quiet slumber. Her dreams were filled with distant memories. Memories of childhood, memories of meeting Ume and Mika and Satoshi, memories of playing games with the neighborhood kids and memories of learning music. Haru would've been embarrassed had she known of the drool that was making it's way down the side of her mouth.

"That's three," Okamura muttered, glaring down at the now-familiar pile of glass pieces. "This is strange." Hooliganism was not exactly common in Yamasaki. Akira had read about groups that would do this sort of thing, but only in manga. This was different, more personal. For a moment, he felt a personal outrage towards the anonymous perpetrator, then he remembered his job and ran back to the van. He started to wonder if they could just wear the harnesses in the van and save time.

As Akira stepped out of the van, he glanced over at the school and idly wondered what must be going on in there. He couldn't remember the school schedule anymore, but he figured that classes had started now. He doubted he'd see anybody he knew today. He didn't usually, not since he stepped out into the metaphorical waves.

"You think we should report this to the police?" he asked.

"Hah?" The question surprised Okamura enough that he paused in donning the harness.

"I mean, it seems like someone might be knocking these out."

"Oh." Okamura was silent after that for a few moments, then said, "I'll give Officer Yoshida a call when we get back to the station." His tone failed to convince Akira, and the youth made a mental note to bring it up again when they got back, and to call Yoshida-san himself if necessary. Okamura then took the new bulb and hooked himself onto the pole. "Ready?"

Akira grabbed the other necessities and hooked his harness onto the pole. Time to hang 'em high. Again.

Kimiko looked up when Hato entered with the older Oshiro girl. She smiled warmly at the two of them. "Hello, Hato-san, Oshiro-san,"
she greeted as she straightened out some of her papers. "If you have your club activity forms, you can put them in the basket over there and I'll look them over after school. Right now, I believe it's time for school."

As if on cue, the high school bell rang, signaling the start of classes. She gestured for everyone to leave the student council room and locked it behind her. With the others, she walked to the classrooms, bidding Oshiro a farewell when they passed her room. They entered the classroom moments before the teacher and settled down. Kimiko sighed as she took out her workbooks. This was going to be a long day...

Ume smiled at the idea of the of learning to play and instrument. No one had ever offered before. She looked over at Haruka to find that she had fallen asleep. Eventually, some drool started coming out of her mouth. Ume laughed softly into her hand and leaned over to poke the black-haired girl. "You might want to wake up, Oshiro-san," she whispered. She poked her again. "Oshiro? Wakey wakey...

Shirudo slowly peeked his head into the clubroom and took in the personnel already present. Most of the council wasn’t present, as they were most likely making their way to their morning classes. The only people he could spot was the tight-knit trio of Kimiko, Minami and Saki, all of them were relatively acquainted with the shy student. Almost instantly he received the green light to enter the room from the president herself. The boy timidly nodded and gulped back uneasiness as he slowly paced his way towards the basket. With one last glance at the parcels, he dumped them gently and nodded to the council. ”If at all possible, could we discuss club funds before my club meeting? I’d like to have a stable thesis before I begin to map out plans with my members.” The request wasn’t strong in its delivery by the slightest. It was a miracle it even left his mouth and were able to carry out every syllable through the medium of air. Before the president could respond, the bell abruptly rang and notified them that it was time to make way to their classes. Following suit, he filed out of the classroom behind the others, keeping in tow with Yuko. The girl’s classroom was in the middle of their route, and Shirudo bid the girl farewell with haste. ”I’ll see you during lunch, alright? Good luck surviving through the morning.” And with that, he gave the girl a minute bow before continuing onto his own classroom.

The boy sat back down in his seat next to Renya and let out a sigh of relief. Since the teacher was yet to arrive, he was half-tempted to begin paging through a manga magazine to kill the time. By the time he had arrived, his blonde friend had already introduced herself to the rest of the class. Such an act could never be accomplished with Shirudp’s calmness completely retained. He gave the girl a greeting smile and straightened his newsboy cap and tie, looking presentable. ”Oh, right. The Gamers’ Club will be having a meeting today. Would you be interested in shadowing and checking it out?” And now that the invitation was sent, Shirudo could rest assured that he had fulfilled all tasks he had set out to do that morning. Soon enough, the teacher had arrived and began yet another grueling lesson. By this point, the boy had gotten used to the monotone voice which dictated his academic career. It was a recurring cycle with no end, a constant revolution day in and day out. He glanced at the back of his classmates’ heads, deciphering which ones he somewhat knew. Along with being on good terms with a few high schoolers, he also knew a few middle schoolers in Yuko’s age range. In addition, he was surprisingly close to musician who was his nextdoor neighbor. All of them played their own part, strummed their own chords in his life. His very average life, if one would.
