The Zodiac Curse

The Zodiac Curse

0 INK

Introduction

The Koichi family now possesses the Zodiac Curse. Thirteen members of the family suffer the loneliness that comes with the curse. Whenever they are hugged by someone of the opposite sex, they transform into their Zodiac animal, this makes getting close to people impossible.

There are only 12 Zodiac animals, then one unfortunate animal who never made it into the Zodiac... The cat. The cat's curse is the worst of all.

The story states that long ago, god held a banquet for all the animals. The rat told the cat, the banquet was the next day. So while all the animals were having a good time, the cat was at home dreaming of the banquet that would never come. The cat never made it into the Zodiac, and it's all because of the rat.

There is a way to break the curse, the members of the Zodiac must fall in love with someone who loves them for who they are.

Two houses connect the Koichi family, each house has an outsider living there, two orphans who were taken in by the Koichi's, of course their leader...the dragon, doesn't approve, but many of the members think it's a good idea for the Zodiac to be around others, others who might accept them for who they are.

The two houses that the Koichi family own are connected, all members live within the two houses. The dragon is the ruler, meant to be a strange boy who has a fiery temper and a very sadistic attitude. He should be cruel and very hard to get close to. If nobody plays the Dragon, it will not effect the story.

Yuji watched him quietly and nodded briefly when it crashed down. He got up shakily, though it was hard considering he's been sitting for a long time, and he creeped towards the door to peak around the wall of it, only to make a small whimpering sound as even more darkness consumed them. "I don't ever want to come back," he whispered. "Come on. I want to get out of here, and fast!"

Urgently, Yuji gripped Kazu's wrist and began stumbling downstairs, nearly tripping but catching himself, and once he was near the door of the haunted house, he rammed through, wanting desperately to get out and once he was successful he collapsed to his knees and screamed, pressing his face against the sidewalk. "Earth! I'm not captive!"

Like the fragile rat he was, he curled up into a ball and just layed on the sidewalk, breathing in the scents of the outside. He soon let go of Kazu, and he got up once he was done sulking. Frowning, he noticed the blood all over him glinting in the light, seemingly recent as it was. "We should head back as soon as possible," he murmured, as he began running down the sidewalk, only to stop remembering his conditions. "Damn it!"

"Walking isn't going to get me anywhere," he muttered, and then his gaze shifted. He saw Eric and..Sayu? Screaming desperately, he raced up to them and hugged them both, revealing his childish part of his persona.

"Eric! Sayu-chan!" He wailed. "Kazu and I were locked in the haunted house! Kazu! Come here!" Yuji cried.

Kazu tilted his head in confusion, he had never seen Yuji act this way... so weak, it made him smirk an ominous feeling of power coming over him. "Heh, coming." he stuffed his hands into his pockets.

Walking slowly in a very casual manner he lifted one hand to wave at Eric and Sayu "Yo." his eyes were half closed, that look of boredom he wore too often showing up.

"It wasn't so bad, I think it had a sorta homely charm to it." Kazu snickered softly and trailed his eyes over Sayu "You look horrible, what happened to your kimono?" he questioned blankly not realizing his own rudeness as usual.

"Oh, Hello Yuji-kun. Glad to see you." Sayu's cheerful voice piped in. Looking down at her torn kimono she scratched the back of her head nervously. "I guess I do look pretty bad right now." she giggled lightly. "But, I thought it was a good idea at the time."

She looked down the road, the direction Yuji and Kazu had ran from. "So it was really scary? I guess I'm glad I got lost then. Let's get back to the house so I can cook you guys some relaxing food." Smiling brightly in her usual way she softly pushed Eric. "Lead the way Eric-Sama."

Yuji nodded. "I'll wash up once I get there, too," he said. "You're very nice, Sayu-chan." The rat boy complimented politely, before walking backwards to stand next to Kazu. He tugged on his sleeve and then looked up at him, throwing the trench coat on the cat boy's head.

"Do you really hate me less, or was that an excuse to use against me later?" Yuji asked in a whisper, though his words betrayed him by the smile plastered on his face, along with the eerie happiness in his question.

"Guess I should expect some remarks later," he shrugged. "but oh well."

Hiro panted as she ran down the sidewalk, finally running into the Koichi's and the uunfamiliar girl. She stopped and studied them; the girl's clothes were torn and they looked like they'd endured a great ordeal. With it being so late, Hiro decided to go looking for the cat and the rat.

"You two!" She said, exasperated. "Where have you been! I cooked and--"

She peered at the girl, and said, "Oh dear, you need some new clothes. You two invited her home didn't you? She must be freezing!"

Hiro was kind to strangers, but not quick to trust. She had never revealed to many people her true form of the goat, but she could not allow this girl to go in such a tattered state.

(Let me know if I'm conflicting with the story!)

Sighing, Akashi lead Maya out of the house, body sore and small circles under his eyes. Letting the girls wrist go, he looked her in the eye before a grin broke out. "Well, that was fun. Let's not do that again though," he said jokingly. Putting his hand behind his head, helot out a long sigh. The chill night air making him shake just a bit.

"We should get going, I'm sure everyone is out by now." walking down the street, he saw two couples, a disgruntled Hiro going up to the cat and the rat. "Finally, family. Hallelujah!"

Hiro saw Akashi and Maya approach. The whole family was outside tonight! And so late, the air was getting very chilly.

"Where has everyone been??" She exclaimed. "Is there a party today or what? I see we've made a new friend," Hiro said, referring to the girl. "I made food and no one was home!"

Sayu smiled at Hiro "I'm so pleased to meet you!" Her cheerful voice broke out, Sayu absolutely loved meeting new people. "You cooked? Oh thank you so much, I usually do the cooking it's nice to have a night off."

Bowing to Yuji as a thank you for the compliment she took out her pocket watch to check the time again. "Guys its extremely late we need to hurry home... Wouldn't want Kaji to be angry." she let out a nervous laugh.

Kazu looked away, pulling his trench coat on while speaking softly. "Hating you...would be a waste of time..." he growled at how he fumbled over the words. "Ah just shut up Yuj- I mean.. Rat."

Kazu walked ahead of the others, not turning to look at them. "Well... Come on." he mumbled. The orange haired boy stopped and waited, still avoiding meeting anyone's eyes. The guilt for his harsh words and actions made him sweat and feel ashamed again.

He desperately wished he could be more friendly, more sociable... Then maybe someday someone would say the words Yuji said to him... but they would mean it. Those words... I love you

Smiling, Yuji trailed behind, though at the back where the others were in front of him. Pulling out his journal, he stuck his pen in between his teeth in which he got from his pocket, and flipped to a page in his journal. Taking the pen from his teeth with his free hand, he began writing as he walked.

The Night of the Haunted House Incident

well, maybe there's ups and downs in every day life, but today was just in the middle, a mixture between an up and a down. on the up side, i've come to realize that the cat hates me less, which in actuality, makes me feel extremely relieved, since it hurt me to be fighting with him all the time. on the down side, we got locked in a freaky haunted house while i began freaking out and crying, resulting in me getting all bloody, which of course sucks.

wait, requoting. hating you would be a waste of time so, would that mean he hates me less or he doesn't hate me at all? i'll find out later since i don't really care at the moment, i just know that i need rest or else i'll end up getting insomnia and going on a hitting frenzy. i get really angry from lack of sleep, ha.

ending this entry for now until i edit later.


His hand hovered over the page as he reread, catching any grammar mistakes or anything bad at all. Satisfied, he continued walking, his journal still in his hands and open in case he had to write anything else. He shifted his gaze and looked at Hiro. "My apologies, Miss Hiro. I bet your food is wonderful, honestly. But unfortunately, I was locked in a haunted house." Yuji nodded. "I am sorry." His gaze shifted again, now back to his open journal.

..come to think of it, i'm quite famished.

Hiro was impressed by the girl's eagerness, and smiled."My name is Hiro, it is my pleasure to meet you. I hope the boys have been kind to you? I hope there wasn't too much trouble?"

They all began to walk

She turned to Yuji and said, "A haunted house..? Is that where you found our little new friend?"

As Maya and Akashi get home she smiles hearing Akashi yell. She bites her lip to stop from bursting out laughing. She exhales getting inside and smiles at Hiro. "If you don't mind,I have a test to prepare for and to fail." She saids knowing that was a little lie but she was going to try and study for maybe ten-twenty minutes.


She hurries to her room before anyone can ask to help and closes the door behind her. She puts in her headphones and starts to study,think what's the point of even trying. But,she wanted to finish school even if she was the bottom of her class. She grabs her heavy book and slams it on her desk.

Sachiko had accidentally wandered away from Kaji. And the very...undesirable atmosphere in the house caused her to get out without much delay. So, now she was outside and the others had already left. But where the hell was Kaji?
