[There's a sound of rattling as Kyoumi instinctively tries her strength against the handcuffs.]

I'm already done with you. Let me go.

Micro AU; Pimpin' ain't easy @ 06:15 pm

[nothing really puts Hibari in a good mood like work done well, but nothing really puts him in a worse mood then being crowded while he's in a good mood. Any good will he'd stored up for Kia in the last two hours of business had faded about halfway back to his home, and now that he was unlocking the front door, it was in the negative]

Why are you still here.

[smiles benignly as he tosses his cards faceup on the table, only half paying attention to the outcome of the round. Maybe this is traditional for business talks, but he's getting just a little bit restless being inside and penned up with too many drunk people who aren't really keeping an eye on the street. He's trying to find a way to gracefully bow out and go check on the guards posted outside, thinking maybe the air would be good]

[it's not his first time regaining consciousness somewhere strange all bloodied up. It only takes him a few seconds of sore confusion before he leverages himself up and starts collecting the things scattered around the rooftop, sword and sheath. It's a few minutes before he tries his door and finds himself locked out. And it's less than half an hour before he's climbing resignedly down the outside of his building with one mostly broken hand and a badly cut arm to land silently on his balcony so he can break the glass open. It's not like a few more cuts are going to make a difference by this point]

[so Kazu's had a pretty chill week, staying over at Dino's place, wearing his t-shirts, having lots of sex, and eating lots of pizza in between working his shifts. But after the 27th time Dino's rooommate threatened to disembowel him he and Dino both agreed it was probably a good time for Kazu to go back home.

Problem being, he was still a girl and he'd totally planned on riding the rest of this thing out with Dino who was, at least, actually good at sex. Unlike Ikki.

So now he comes slinking back mid-afternoon, hoping againstprobability and his own horrible luck that Ikki will be out doing something productive like banging a hooker]

[Teaching the ways of the Flame King is a timely business and even with as good as student as Kazu, Spitfire's taking care to make sure he has the basics down before moving on to anything else. What this means is that their last few meetings have been nothing but basic training maneuvers and today is looking like much of the same.]

[If this is getting tedious for Kazu, Spit's pretending not to notice.]

One more time up and down, please.

[Kazu wished discovering he was mostly kind of gay had been harder or something; there's no precedent for getting over the fact that his best, not-gay male friend just fucked him on the floor of his room. Also, freaking out about it was really kind of girly, which wasn't helping things.]

[but the freaking out isn't stopping, and Kazu really needs to lay down or just chill out or something before he faints (also girly). Since just the though of seeing Dino calms him down, he figures that's the best place]

[so it's like midnight and Kazu's knocking on Dino's door, twisting the ends of his sleeves]

[for a city of porn and sex and whatever else, this sucked. Girls weren't throwing themselves at him to get in his pants and he was reaching that week two or whatever where everyday started to feel like he had the worst cold ever. But like hell was he going to tell Kazu about his inability to score so he feigned laziness and spent all day in Kazu's room while he was out working, trying not to die everywhere as he plotted a means for getting laid.]

Fucking porn city and its fucking expensive hookers.

[the ringing of his cell phone woke Kazu up from a light post-run doze. Checking to see who it was required more energy than he really had so he just grabbed it and flipped it open, yawning before he could answer]

Mmm, yeah?

[probably a mark of how weird his life was, it wasn't even all that surprising to wake up at home again. He went through his morning routine like usual, thinking vaguely as he showered about the place he'd left behind and wondering how people were managing. Ordinary thoughts. And he dressed in ordinary clothes before leaving his ordinary home to casually head to Hibari's. Like if he acted routine enough, it really would be. Tucking one hand in his pocket, he cocked his head and calculated mentally his odds of waking Hibari up if he were even home. And then knocked anyway]

[It's almost a month later that Dino's back in Japan, and it's been a fairly busy month trying to arrange things for today. But he's managed and he's dumbly excited, ignoring his men's amused looks as he waits for the so-named Guest of Honor for today in his condo in Japan]

[Kazu stood in front of the condo and pulls a well-worn piece of paper out of his back pocket, glancing at it before eying the door, then shoving the paper unceremoniously back into his pocket]

I guess this is it...

[after a quick tug to straighten his beanie he knocks on the door]

[it is business as usual for Dino in Japan, though he's not in the usual parts of Japan he visits. Business has brought him to areas that are a little more metropolitan than he's used to, but he doesn't mind it so much, not when he's walking with a few of his men down the street after a successful meeting.

The people running around on fancy rollerblades is a new thing though.]

Hahaah, you guys think we missed out on some new trend?

[so today Sora gets to leave the hospital and Rika being the good girlfriend she is has decided to wait for him in the lobby]

[... For all of an hour before she's storming towards his room because the bastard is late]

Sora where the hell are you!

[Kyoumi had made a lot of work for herself]

[one might think that the bodies, in various states of dying or unconsciousness, had taken a lot of work to put there, but they hadn't. Just a crowd of herbivores. Moving them was going to take work.]

[She nudged one idly with her foot, and the man groaned. She hadn't even broken a sweat, though she'd collected a couple small bruises and cuts. And a bullet, a clean shot straight through the meat of her shoulder.]

[she wasn't very concerned, still assessing the damage of the melee on the shop. It would have to be cleaned, very thoroughly, but she could hire a service for that at least]

[there is a man in Spitfire's hair salon. Perhaps he needs a haircut. Perhaps he is just there to stand and look irate--possibly at his LACK of haircut]

I suppose I forgot to make an appointment. [or maybe that's the problem]

[late in the evening there's a tentative knocking at the door] Dino? You ordered some stuff? Shit, I hope it wasn't one of his roommates.

(no subject) @ 12:54 am


[glancing up at the chime from the door, setting the scissors he'd been cleaning on the counter. It's been a slow day at the salon, so Spitfire's the only one currently on the floor.]

Ah, it's you again.

This land of wherever the hell this is has been officially claimed as Kogarasumaru territory!!

... Shit where the hell is this anyway.
