2004-12-14 [*~Sora~*]: [waahh! even that was a name! ><! ]
2004-12-14 [Shadow Reaper]: [roflmao]
2004-12-14 [*~Sora~*]: [not funny]
2004-12-14 [Shadow Reaper]: [lol yeah it is]
2004-12-14 [*~Sora~*]: [pulls out a roll of duck tape]
2004-12-14 [Shadow Reaper]: [o0 ]
2004-12-14 [*~Sora~*]: [tapes you up and flicks your forehead*]
2004-12-14 [Shadow Reaper]: [o0 hey!]
2004-12-14 [Shadow Reaper]: [0o where's everyone at, anyways?]
2004-12-14 [kitoky]: [T.T I'm gonna start restricting how many un-rpging comments there should be inbetween T.T] Sanosuke sits down at a table with a wheat sticking in his mouth, "Good, I'll need something to make my day since I lost a bit at the gamble house."
2004-12-14 [Shadow Reaper]: Kenshin smiles as Sanosuke sits. "You should not gamble so much, that you should not." Starts to gather the ingredients for the soup.
2004-12-14 [kitoky]: Sanosuke throws a glare at Kenshin. "Yeah well, it's a good thing I didn't bring YOU along after you made a loser of me that one time."
2004-12-14 [Shadow Reaper]: He smiles again [......i'm trying to think of what he would say at this moment....]
2004-12-14 [kitoky]: "How are ya healing there, Kenshin?" Sanosuke looks over to him.
2004-12-14 [Shadow Reaper]: "I'm healing well right now, and what about you Sanosuke?" Kenshin says as he starts to prepare the ingredients.
2004-12-15 [kitoky]: [ne...I feel like talking to a wall because I'm the one asking questions and the conversation ends after the answer XD]
2004-12-15 [Shadow Reaper]: [lol sorry, i'll put up a question then ^^]
2004-12-15 [Veriale]: Kaoru had went to pour them tea and when she came back, she saw Sanasuke. "Timely" she grumbled, going to pour another cup as she set it on the table with a sharp rap. "Went gambling again I suppose? Sano you need to find a JOB you Free-Loader!"
2004-12-15 [Shadow Reaper]: Kenshin smiles a little at what Kaoru just said and continues to prepare the meal, starting up the fire and getting the pan ready.
2004-12-15 [kitoky]: Sanosuke shoots a glare back at Kaoru, "I don't have any skills for a JOB unless there's one where they pay me to fight which leads me to being Zanza again."
2004-12-16 [Veriale]: "So that means what? You intend for me to feed you till you grow old?" came Kaoru's reply.
2004-12-16 [kitoky]: "Of course not," Sanosuke said passively. "I'm sure you'll grow old before I do that means you won't be able to feed me anymore."
2004-12-16 [Veriale]: "Why you..." Kaoru smacks Sanosuke's head with the kettle in her frustration.
2004-12-16 [kitoky]: Sanosuke glares at Kaoru as the kettle strikes his head. "Hey, watch it, missy."
2004-12-16 [Veriale]: "Oops," said Kaoru. "Didn't see your head there" *Changes into chibi, puts her hand over her mouth and laughs*
2004-12-16 [kitoky]: Misao comes back into the room. "Kaoru how can send a letter to Aoshi-sama from here?"
2004-12-17 [Veriale]: "Oh yes uh" She figured Misao wanted to talk and lead her into the courtyard.
2004-12-17 [Shadow Reaper]: kenshin watches for them go into the courtyard for a moment before going back to stirring the soup. "Hmm, almost ready I think." He says with a slight smile.
2004-12-17 [kitoky]: Misao followed Kaoru. "You really don't want Himura to know?" ------ Sanosuke sniffs the air in the room.
2004-12-18 [Veriale]: "I... uh... unless it's serious, I don't think he should." said Kaoru doubfully, twisting her fingers. "I don't want him to leave again..."
2004-12-18 [kitoky]: "So this is what it's all about, Kaoru? You're just worried that he'll leave again and never come back?" Misao questioned sympathically.
2004-12-19 [Veriale]: Kaoru sighs. "Yes and also the possibility if he becomes Battousai again."
2004-12-19 [kitoky]: "You said this wasn't very serious...even less serious than with Shishio but you're worried about him turning into a Battousai - if he defeated Shishio without turning to the Battousai then why would think this would push him to the limit?" Misao sighed. "Yes, he is weary of all of this, and I apologize if I was wrong to think that he would want to be of any part of this. But I warn you all, if this DOES get serious, I won't be the one that'll be knocking on your door for help on this issue."
2004-12-19 [Veriale]: Kaoru frowned. "Nevertheless, I'm worried. Unless it's an extremely desperate case, i don't think Kenshin should know." She sighed again. "I mean you understand, don't you? If it was Aoshi... you wouldn't... nevermind." She composed herself before she continued. "So who is this accomplice person anyway? Any news about this mysterious guy? I'm sure as a member of the Oni gang you'll have your sources?"
2004-12-19 [kitoky]: It was Misao's turn to frown. She looked away. "Actually, part of the reason why Aoshi-sama sent me here was to try and find some information from Himura about who the accomplice might be. Though since you don't want Himura to know...we're at our dead end." Misao looked up and took out an envelope from the sash of her ninjia outfit. "This is the letter I want to send Aoshi-sama. Is there anyway I can get it to him?"
2004-12-20 [Veriale]: Kaoru was baffled now. "From Himura? But I thought you said it was Shishio's secret weapon? If that's the case how could Kenshin know? Besides, if Shishio had single handedly trained this accomplice, he should be around Soujirou's age." She pointed the way into town. "There's a new government post office in town just opposite the market. You should be able to send your letter there. They are following the English system now. There will be this post-person to send your letter, though I don't really know how it works but they say it is faster than using a runner messenger."
2004-12-20 [kitoky]: Misao sighed once again. "We were hoping Himura would know of some possible suspects from the Revolution who might've been on Shishio's influence." She shook her head. "Don't worry about it. Tell Himura that I won't be back in time for lunch, just leave it for me k?" Misao turned and left through the gate.
2004-12-21 [Veriale]: "Sure." replied Kaoru vaguely. She went back, slid the door, and entered the room. "Hmmm smells nice! Kenshin, is the food ready yet?"
2004-12-21 [kitoky]: "Oh...so you were going to eat yours Kaoru?" Sanosuke looked up from slurping down Kaoru's bowl of Miso soup.
2004-12-22 [Veriale]: ~.~! *Turns to chibi and smashes Sano's face into the bowl* She turns to Kenshin ignoring Sanosuke. "Kenshin please tell me there's more... I'm famished!"
2004-12-22 [kitoky]: [*giggles* Bad Chibi-Kaoru!]
2004-12-23 [*~Sora~*]: [hahaha! at last after days of waiting I see redness which means another stupid comment from Sora goes up! ^^...ummm....well...i'm bored because you evil evil people left me without anyone to annoy! ><! *is bored to death*...okay well...bye then! ><!]
2004-12-23 [kitoky]: Yahiko slides open the door and steps in. "Is lunch ready, Kenshin?"
2004-12-24 [Veriale]: [Heehee =n.n= Always fun to have a chibi around! And OY! KENSHIN! *pokes him with a stick*]
2004-12-27 [kitoky]: [they didn't see the shadow but heard the scream?]
2004-12-27 [Veriale]: [er yah pretty much like that =p]
2004-12-27 [kitoky]: [okay - maybe I should play Kenshin for the timebeing?]
2004-12-27 [Veriale]: [Yes please!]
2004-12-27 [kitoky]: Kenshin looks up and smiles at Kaoru, "Why, of course, Miss Kaoru. I would never let you miss a meal. Though there was one time where a racoon snuck into the kitchen and stole a fish, that it did."
2004-12-27 [Veriale]: *Chibi flash : Kaoru = Racoon* 0.0"
2004-12-27 [kitoky]: Kenshin sees the chibi flash and sweatdrops. "Of course, I could've been mistaken, and it could've been a fox, that it could."
2004-12-27 [Veriale]: *Another chibi flash in Kaoru's mind: Megumi = Fox* 0.o"
2004-12-27 [kitoky]: Kenshin sweatdrops even more and sighs and hands Kaoru her bowl of Miso soup. Kenshin also hands Yahiko his bowl.
2004-12-27 [kitoky]: Yahiko slurps up his bowl slowly, "Hey, Kaoru, where did Misao go?"
2004-12-27 [Veriale]: "She went to sent Aoshi a letter" came Kaoru's reply.
2004-12-27 [kitoky]: Sano perked his head up. "Why would she need to send Aoshi a letter?"
2004-12-27 [Veriale]: "Aoshi would want to know that she has reached here safely" Kaoru kept an eye on Misao's bowl of soup and made sure Sano goes no where near it.
2004-12-27 [kitoky]: "Wow that guy does have a heart." Sano commented, closing his eyes.
2004-12-27 [Veriale]: "Of course he does! Or he wouldn't have kept Misao and raised her would he?" She paused. "Though yea sometimes you wonder what's really going on in that guy's mind..." muttered Kaoru.
2004-12-27 [kitoky]: Sano opened one eye to look at Kaoru. Since when does Kaoru defend Aoshi... Yahiko looked up from his soup, "We don't know for sure that he raised Misao, what if that old guy Okina raised her or he convinced Aoshi to raise her."
2004-12-27 [Veriale]: "True" Kaoru agreed. "Yea well, but Misao seems so fond of him you can't help but feel maybe there's a more caring side to Aoshi behind that cold... silent... uncaring... exterior?"
2004-12-27 [kitoky]: "Yeah well, weasel girl's just naiive." Sano commented. The door slides open really hard and a few kunais flew past Sano's head. "Who are you calling naiive?" [Yey! Lets ruin Kaoru's dojo!]
2004-12-27 [Veriale]: *Kaoru: sweatdrops*
2004-12-27 [kitoky]: Misao steps into the dojo glaring at Sano. Sano paid no attention to her. Kenshin blinked and decided to offer some soup, "Miss Misao, would you like some Miso soup?" Misao looked over at Kenshin almost nervously, "Sure."
2004-12-27 [Veriale]: "Here, let me" Kaoru hurries over and gives Misao her soup.
2004-12-27 [kitoky]: "Don't accidently put anything in it, missy." Sano said to Kaoru. Misao blinked.
2004-12-27 [Veriale]: "Huh?" Kaoru stares at Sano. *Chibi: question mark over her head*
2004-12-27 [kitoky]: [muwahha, Sano means that Kaoru can poison any meal even by just serving it *nods*]
2004-12-27 [Veriale]: [lol. But she still doesn't know that Heehee]
2004-12-27 [kitoky]: *Sano's head turns chibi* "Wow, Missy, are you that dense?"
2004-12-27 [Veriale]: *Chibi Kaoru: storm clouds with lightning over her head* "Why you..."
2004-12-27 [kitoky]: Kenshin sweatdropped and put his hands up in the act of truce. "Now, Miss Kaoru...Sano..
2004-12-27 [Veriale]: Kaoru stuffed Sano's face into her empty bowl of Miso soup, and smiled. "Now that everyone's eaten, time to clean up" she said cherrily, ignoring Sano struggling behind her.
2004-12-27 [kitoky]: Misao sweatdropped as she watched Yahiko try to pull the bowl off of Sano's face...
2004-12-27 [Veriale]: "Come on, Yahiko-chan, come help do the dishes" said Kaoru gaily as she cleared the table. *=n.n=* [lol boy, this is funny!]
2004-12-27 [kitoky]: Yahiko blinked and looked over at Kaoru while leaving his feet against Sano's chest and a good grasp on the bowl. "Since when do I do dishes?"
2004-12-27 [Veriale]: "Ever since you live here! Or would you rather do the laundry? We could give Kenshin a day off washing." replied Kaoru sternly. "Now stop helping the bafoon and get over here to help with the dishes now."
2004-12-27 [kitoky]: "You can't get rid of me! I'm your only student! Without me, your dojo would be nothing!" Yahiko countered back! Misao and Kenshin started sweatdropping even more.
2004-12-27 [Veriale]: Kaoru sweatdrops together with Kenshin and Misao. *Turns chibi: grabs Yahiko away from the still struggling Sano and deposits him by the sink* "Discipline... part of your training."
2004-12-27 [kitoky]: Yahiko glares at Kaoru, "Stop lying, you old hag!"
2004-12-27 [Veriale]: Kaoru borrowed the brush Kenshin was using to scrub the dishes to wack Yahiko's head. "I'm your Sensei remember? Now start scrubbing." She shoves the brush in his hand.
2004-12-27 [kitoky]: Yahiko took the brush and started scrubbing though grumbling also. Sano pointed to his "head", "Hey...alittle help here."
2004-12-27 [Veriale]: *Kaoru turns chibi with evil eyes and hits the bowl with a ladel with a "ting" sound*
2004-12-27 [kitoky]: "Hey!" Sano protested. Misao watched everything go on, tears almost welling in her eyes at the memory of Beshimi, Hanya, Hyottoko, and Shikijou..
2004-12-27 [Veriale]: Kaoru turned to see if Misao was still in the room. She had become quite quiet. "Misao? What's wrong?"
2004-12-27 [kitoky]: "It's nothing..." Misao said, blinking the tears away. "Really, I'm fine. I'm just tired that's all."
2004-12-27 [Veriale]: "I'll help you get your things to the other room. Come on." said Kaoru sympatheticall
2004-12-27 [kitoky]: Misao silently nodded and followed Kaoru out of the room. Once they left Sano finally peeled off the bowl. "What's with her?"
2005-01-10 [Shadow Reaper]: [heh, sorry i haven't posted in a while...was on christmas break]
2005-01-10 [kitoky]: [well then post now]
2005-01-10 [Shadow Reaper]: [:P i would, but now i'm kinda lost...]
2005-01-10 [kitoky]: [Read. That's all you have to do. Read.]
2005-01-10 [Veriale]: [Ken-san better say something... he's been MIA for too long =p]
2005-01-10 [kitoky]: [Indeed....]
2005-01-10 [Shadow Reaper]: [o0 heh, sorry...i'll come up with something in a bit ^^;]
2005-01-10 [Shadow Reaper]: Kenshin looks over at Sano for a moment. "If I'm not mistaken, I believe she misses Beshimi and the others, that I do." [how's that?]
2005-01-10 [kitoky]: [yes that will do =)] Yahiko's eyes widen in realization. "That's right. Misao did have some relation with those four and it has been a long time since..." Yahiko trails off and looks down.
2005-01-10 [Shadow Reaper]: Kenshin nods a bit. "I'm sure she misses them very much...." [o0 my mind's kinda blank at the moment on what to do......]
2005-01-10 [kitoky]: Sano leans his face into his hand. "I'm surprised she's not begrudging us. We did do some damage to them." --- Yahiko looks over to Sano. "We didn't murder them! That was the work of that Konryu guy!"
2005-01-10 [Shadow Reaper]: "I wonder whatever happened to him." says Kenshin, speaking his thoughts out loud.
2005-01-10 [kitoky]: [ooohh...that would be a good plot *taps chin* The return of Konryu Takada!]
2005-01-10 [Shadow Reaper]: [lol yeah, i was kinda thinking about that when i typed it ^^]
2005-01-10 [kitoky]: Sano heaved himself up from the small table. "Still in jail, most likely." Sano turned and walked out of the room, "I'm goin' for a walk."
2005-01-10 [Shadow Reaper]: Kenshin nods again. "You're most likely right, especially after what he did...."
2005-01-10 [kitoky]: Yahiko runs out. "Hey, Sano! Don't go off to the gamble house again, you'll just lose!" A red vein appears on top of Sano's head. "Mind your own business, y'runt!" Sano walks off faster, shoulders stooped. Yahiko walks back in and goes to the kitchen to wash dishes.
2005-01-10 [Shadow Reaper]: Kenshin stands up and follows Yahiko to the kitchen. "Need any help?" He asks with a small smile.
2005-01-10 [kitoky]: "Nah, I've got this, I'll show Kaoru who valuable a student I am. " Yahiko gets a determined look on his face and scrubs all the bowls.
2005-01-10 [Shadow Reaper]: "Alright then." Kenshin smiles a bit as he makes his way back to the living room.
2005-01-10 [kitoky]: Meanwhile, Misao kneels down in her room, looking at Kaoru. "Since, you don't want Himura to know, I've sent a letter to Aoshi because of this. Once I receive a reply, I'lll probably have to leave again..."
2005-01-11 [Veriale]: Kaoru frowned. "You told Aoshi about me not wanting Kenshin to know? ... " There was a slight pause as Kaoru cast her eyes down. "Alright then."
2005-01-11 [Veriale]: [Hmm how about Sano meeting Keiko at the gambling house?]
2005-01-11 [kitoky]: "The only reason I came here is to see if Himura knows of this. But I will respect your decision to keep it from it. But...do you really think it's best to keep it secret?" Misao said quietly. [sure! ]
2005-01-12 [Veriale]: "I don't know, Misao. I mean how serious can it be? As you had said, it has all been threats so far." came Kaoru's reply.
2005-01-12 [kitoky]: [guards have died! :p]
2005-01-13 [Veriale]: [thought no one had died yet? Hmmm nvm me go change]
2005-01-13 [kitoky]: [so you want sano to meet keiko? Should we like do that scene?]
2005-01-14 [Veriale]: [hmm the thing is I dunno whether she should appear cloaked and mysterious or she should be working undercover as a bar hostess....then Sano can get goo goo-eyed]
2005-01-14 [Shadow Reaper]: [umm, sorry about the wait...my comp messed up for a bit]
2005-01-14 [kitoky]: [goo goo eyed...yes must!]
2005-01-14 [*~Sora~*]: [hmmmm....Sora has now given up on annoying everyone on this page so i'm leaving, okay? bye-bye P.S. you can celebrate now! ^^]
2005-01-15 [Veriale]: [-.-"?]
2005-01-15 [Veriale]: The smell of cigar smoke filled the dank musty room of the Pheonix Pub. [you think of a better name and get back to me =p] On the small stage, was a beautiful young woman wearing an off shoulder kimono. The kimono was arranged in such a manner that the high slit showed one of her long fair legs. Her sweet seductive voice, travelled as she sang and danced; there were cat-calls coming from the men below. Though she was 20, she looked about 3 years younger.
2005-01-15 [Veriale]: [there you go. Enough for Sano's taste? 0.o You know, I don't really know what kind of women he likes =/]
2005-01-15 [kitoky]: Sano enters the pub looking around, "This looks like a new place...a loud place..." Sano looks around and spots the woman on stage..."Well, well, well this may be my kinda place, minus the noise." Sano smirks and goes over to order some sake. [I'll make him like her XD]
2005-01-16 [Veriale]: Keiko finished her song with a pose together with the other dancers behind. There was the sound of applause and more cat-calls from the men below as she walked off stage. Urgh... men... she thought disgustedly. However, she smiled and blew a kiss to the audience - or rather directly at Sanosuke. She had recognised him once he entered the pub. [Sorry can't help playing a manipulative character. You don't mind if she tries to play with his feelings, don't you? But then I'll make her really like Sano in the end of course. One of those tragic cliche love stories... but I like! =n.n= ]
2005-01-16 [Veriale]: [Oh and I'll make her try to seduce Kenshin also. After all, she suits him in terms of age... then Kaoru would have a rival! Muahahaha! Fun!]
2005-01-16 [kitoky]: [XD - I don't mind at all! How does Keiko suit Kenshin in terms of age? Kenshin's 28...That's still a long way..] Sano's ears perked up as he noticed she blew a kiss right at him. Atleast, that's what he thought. Sano looked behind him and saw no one. Sano smirked. "And the newbie gets a welcome gift." Sano waves to the bartender and orders some more sake. [better ne?]
2005-01-18 [Veriale]: [no. In those times 8 yaers diff is not a lot. Kaoru's 17 for heaven sakes! Keiko's age would suit Kenshin better compared to Kaoru anyhow =p]
2005-01-18 [Veriale]: [Nono! don't go backstage! Order alcohol! Keiko will do the serving *grins* Or do you want the classic walk-in on her when she's changing scene 0.o?]
2005-01-18 [Veriale]: Keiko made her way down the stage, effortlessly attracting a lot of attention. She ignored and skillfully dodged the pawing men as she made her way to the bar. "Kasumi. The boss expects you to do some 'entertaining' real soon." said the bartender. Keiko opened her mouth to say something but was cut short. "Sake. Table 13. Guy with spiked hair." A tray was thust into her hands. "Go on." She went. "Sir, your sake?" she said sweetly. She smiled when she saw his face. My my what a coincidence. Sagara...
2005-01-18 [kitoky]: [Hmmm I've gotten to thinking - Sano probably wants a dignant woman but beautiful] Sano looked up, eyes widening at the site of the woman that was on stage just a few minutes ago. "Just set it down." Sano said while taking another gulp of the left over sake. "So what's your name, miss?"
2005-01-18 [Veriale]: [Okie dokes. I can have that arranged =n.n=] She put the tray down. "Kasumi" she replied casting her eyes down meekly and almost shyly. She turned and hurried away only to "accidentally" walk into a drunkurd fellow who pulled her towards him. Normally, Keiko would've just zapped his accupuncture points. However, she was struggling now as the man tried to carry and kiss her. [Sano to the rescue! I know he would!]
2005-01-18 [kitoky]: Sano immediately stood up, to remove the drunken mad from Kasumi-san. "Hey sto---" He stopped short as the drunkard accidently bumped Kasumi into the table spilling all the sake. "Hey!" Sano breaks Kasumi away from the drunkard and gives him a hard punch to the cheek. "You just spilled my sake, now apologize!"
2005-01-19 [Veriale]: "Ah!" Keiko feigned a scream as she fell to the floor.
2005-02-20 [darklightofhim]: hello big people i dont no
2005-02-20 [kitoky]: [hullo person that has interrupted the rpg O.o]
2005-02-21 [Veriale]: [Yar well but if it wasn't for him, this place would be quite stagnant.... But me says Hi too =n.n=]
2005-02-21 [kitoky]: [^^ I trying to think of what Sano could do as Keiko-san falls dramatically to the floor O.o]
2005-02-22 [Veriale]: [alrighty, take ye time then =n.n=]
2005-02-22 [kitoky]: Sano quickly held out his right hand beneath Kasumi-san's back to keep her steady. "Now are you going to apologize, do we have to get rough?"
2005-02-23 [Veriale]: The drunk man got into a fury and yelled. "I paid for her! What's the meaning of this!"
2005-02-23 [kitoky]: "That's funny, didn't know we can buy people. If this is true, I might as well buy you and make you my carrying pidgeon." Sano smirked.
2005-02-24 [Veriale]: "Why you felonious punk!" the drunk man dashed at Sanosuke head on with an angry growl.
2005-02-24 [kitoky]: Sano dodged a punch and twirled around to give the drunk a sharp kick on the back*
2005-02-25 [Veriale]: The drunkurd fell face firt onto the floor. But then he got up , yelled and charged again at Sano like an angry bull. Keiko's hands covered her face. She was displaying a nice run of tears by now.
2005-02-25 [kitoky]: Sano was getting irritated by now and wanted to get it over with. He held out his arm and stopped the raging bull in his tracks with the palm of his hand. "Face it, you're dirt, I think that new look fits you quite well." Sano noted the dust and dirt on the drunkard's face.
2005-02-26 [Veriale]: The drunk man pants and tried to punch Sano. "You impudent renegade!"
2005-02-26 [kitoky]: "Frankly, I'm getting tired of this." Sano said in a bored tone and then used his middle finger to flick at the drunk's forehead.
2005-02-27 [Veriale]: The drunk fellow fell backwards flat on his back - spinal chord fractured while Keiko watches sobbing.
2005-02-27 [kitoky]: [ouch that must've hurt] Sano turned and looked at Keiko behind him. "You alright miss?"
2005-02-28 [Veriale]: Keiko didn't reply but continued to sob on. The guys who were at the pub together with the drunkurd were now calling the manager. There were staring daggers at Sanosuke.
2005-02-28 [kitoky]: [xD What do you do when they call he manager? XD]
2005-02-28 [Veriale]: [Er argue... if the worst comes, just grab the girl and run?]
2005-02-28 [kitoky]: [so I should grab the girl and run? But then again - why would Sano worry 'bout the girl - she's a worker there no?]
2005-03-01 [Veriale]: The manager arrived a moment too soon. "What is all this about?" He spotted Keiko. "Kasumi, what's all the fuss? Go with the man over there," he pointed to one ofr the drunkurd's friends. "He has paid a good sum for you."
2005-03-01 [Veriale]: Keiko clutched Sanosuke's shirt as she hid behind him. She was still sobbing and burst into fresh tears. "Yo...you... sold me?" she asked shakily. [ok, got a reason to grab and run now?]
2005-03-01 [kitoky]: [quite thanks] Sano placed his hand on her shoulder to comfort her and protect her all at once. "You'd sell her to dogs like him?!" Sano yelled angrily at the manager.
2005-03-04 [Veriale]: The manager was frustrated. How in the world was he to run a business if a brawl started in his pub? "Calm down sir." he said instead. "What I wish to do with my worker is none of your business. Now if you would kindly hand over the girl, please?"
2005-03-04 [kitoky]: [Wait, I just thought of something....if Sano grabbed and go then they'd be looking for him forever but if he overpaid the dude than it's okay? Kaoru to the rescue! :3]
2005-03-06 [Veriale]: [Great! Kaoru will have a great time walloping him afterwards. Use the money she gave him to buy a new paiil and vegetables and stuff]
2005-03-06 [kitoky]: [right!] Sano grinded his teeth, "How much did the guy pay for her?"
2005-03-06 [Veriale]: [Er how much? I dunno =/]
2005-03-06 [kitoky]: [make up something then]
2005-03-06 [Veriale]: The manager grinned. "The highest bid was a million yen"
2005-03-06 [kitoky]: "Alright then, I bid a million and 10 yen."
2005-03-07 [Veriale]: Keiko stared at Sanosuke unsure if he had the money.The man who bid a million yen raised his bid. "A million and a hundred yen!"
2005-03-07 [kitoky]: Sano inwardly cringed but continued on picturing Kaoru's nagging face in his head, "A million and two hundred yen!"
2005-03-07 [Veriale]: "A million and five hundred" came the reply. The manager was now grinning from ear to ear. [Oh boy, Sano is definitely in for it...]
2005-03-07 [kitoky]: "Two million yen!" Sano blurted out before he could think about it.
2005-03-09 [Veriale]: The smoky pub was silent for a moment before everyone burst out in chatter. The man was willing to pay two million yen for a bar girl! Yea but then again, the girl is quite pretty... "Going once.... going twice.........
2005-03-09 [kitoky]: "Sol...." 'Sold?!' Sano's mind whirled trying to recollect what just happened. "I......."
2005-03-10 [Veriale]: Keiko frowned. I thought so! He couldn't have had so much money on him....
2005-03-10 [kitoky]: [Have Kaoru storm in looking around for him...o.o]
2005-03-11 [Veriale]: At that very moment, Kaoru entered the scene. "SAGARA SANOSUKE! WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE? WHERE ARE THE STUFF FOR THE DOJO?" Kaoru had quickly ended her discussion with Misao with the excuse of needing to buy essentials. She looked all over the dojo but Sano did not seem to be around. Yahiko was the appropriate person to ask of his whereabouts. "Yahiko, where's Sano? He was supposed to go downtown to buy new swords for the dojo. He should be back by now..." When Yahiko told her his wheareabouts, Kaoru naturally fumed and decided to go and fetch him herself.
2005-03-11 [kitoky]: "Ah...hey Missy." Sano greeted as casually as he could. "You didn't give me enough money for your stuff...."
2005-03-12 [Veriale]: "WHAT MISSY! I GAVE YOU ENOUGH MONEY I COUNTED IT MYSELF!" fumed Kaoru. "Now let's GO!" she grabbed Sano to see another woman behind him. "...and who is this?"
2005-03-12 [kitoky]: "Well since you've been whining about needing more help around the dojo, I decided to buy you new help......for two million yen...." Sano inwardly winced and prepared for Kaoru's oncoming yelling.
2005-03-13 [Veriale]: As Sano predicted, Kaoru exploded. "W H A T!!!!! T W O M I L L I O N Y E N!!!! S A G A R A!!!! A R E Y O U O U T O F Y O U R M I N D!?!?!?!!" By now, the pub was quiet. All the guests there had their attention focused on a commotion at the bar.
2005-03-13 [kitoky]: "Hey! I wasn't going to let this abuser buy her!" Sano yelled back.
2005-03-14 [Veriale]: Kaoru took a glance at Keiko, who looked as if she was about to tear again. At this point, the manager decided to interrupt. "Er pardon me, Ms, your boyfriend here had already placed his bid on the lady over there...but I think I could always let her to the gentleman there if you are jealous..."
2005-03-14 [Veriale]: "Boyfriend! Jealous! Eww No!" Kaoru fished out some money and shoved it to the manager. "A million and six hundred. Take it or leave it." With that, she grabbed Sano and marched out of the pub. She didn't care about the girl. She could jolly well walk herself but now, she needed to settle some issues outside.... ewe and he actually thought Sano was her boyfriend! The manager smiled inwardly as the party marched out of the pub.
2005-03-14 [kitoky]: "H-hey Kaoru!" Sano yelled and angry by the fact that a kendo instructer was dragging the former fighter-for-hi
2005-03-14 [Veriale]: "You had better find a job and PAY ME BACK ALL THAT MONEY!" Kaoru was obviously furious.
2005-03-14 [kitoky]: "Then let me go!" Sano screamed!
2005-03-16 [Veriale]: Kaoru only let go her grip when they are outside the pub.
2005-03-16 [kitoky]: Sano turned around to see if the girl followed.
2005-03-17 [Veriale]: She did. Keiko had left the pub together with them, but was looking rather lost.
