[[This is my personal favorite. It’s perfect, down to the funny bits about Mikoto. I love how Izumo and Tatara remain deadpan… Especially the part where Izumo’s teasing Yata~ Voice Porn~]]
Anna: K Radio Drama. Tale 6: Ghost Story.
Kamamoto: Everyone might as well know about this but, I had moved once half a year ago.
Totsuka: Ah, yes. Everyone was helping out with your moving. It was fun.
Kamamoto: Thanks to you for everything, Totsuka-san!
Yata: Hey fatty! The way you’re saying it is like you don’t thank me! I WAS BESIDE YOU GUYS TOO!
Kamamoto: Yata-san~ You were reading my manga at that time, weren’t you? Besides you cared about the cotinuation of the story and in the middle of it you were totally into it! Ah,ahhh…
-sighs- So, about the answer to today’s topic, you might have been wondering why I had moved away and so I’ll be talking about what was going on at that time. I was reluctant to tell the truth.
Totsuka: Ah… come to think of it, you didn’t tell us the reason in the end. But you were pale the whole time.
Yata: KEH! It wasn’t because of some stupid reason, was it!? *tingggg*
Kusanagi: Yata-chan~ Shut up and listen to the story.
Yata: Kusanagi-san… Stop making weird sounds by tapping that glass!
Kusanagi: Hn hn hn~! Yata-chan, you scared? *tingggg tingggg*
Yata: I’M…! I’m not scared.
Totsuka: Now now. First of all, let’s listen to Kamamoto’s story. So, Kamamoto!
Kamamoto: Totsuka-san, thank you! *Ehermm*
Well, everyone might have as well heard or know about it but, that room back then was quite cheap but it was worthy, however you could feel that the atmosphere was not really good.
Yata: Surely it was just simply because you’re fat, wasn’t it? *tingggg* Gahh, Kusanagi-san I told you to please stop it!
Kamamoto: …One day, I got some manjuu from a granny, so I ate them on the kotatsu. They were delicious, moisty sweet bean-jam buns! Ah, and then since I was out of drink, I went out to the vending machine to buy some tea. It was a cold day but the bottle in my hand was quite warm. When I got back to the room, I thought, “Eh, it’s somewhat weird…?”
Totsuka: What happened?
Kamamoto: The room’s light was off. It was supposed to still be on, definitely.
Kamamoto: As I was thinking, “Maybe I was mistaken”, "It’s strange, really strange", and the light just went on. But then I thought, “Oh no, oh no!”, and as I looked on the kotatsu, the buns were gone.
Yata: It was definitely you who ate them, alright! Y-you glutton… -nervous laugh-
Kamamoto: Ah? Ehehehe~! I’d be glad if that was the case… I couldn’t calm down since the room was strange. “Murmurs, murmurs”! It felt like I was being watched by someone and I felt uneasy the whole time. And then I was like, "What was that?“, "How strange…”, “Oh, please don’t!”, but I was so curious, so I looked around for those buns.
Kusanagi: Yeah, I’m feeling it.
Totsuka: It’s getting exciting!
Kamamoto: The buns were found quite easily, surprisingly… I pulled the cover aside and there was the box containing the buns that I got from granny. “Ah, I might have dropped it,” I thought… but, “Eh, how odd… What’s that?”
…There was a really white thing sticking on that box. It was somewhat like a person’s fingers… They were thin and long, it’s like a woman’s fingers, they were… blank. I… took courage and quieeeetly pulled off the kotatsu cover, and……there was a woman curling up, wrapping her arms around her knees. That woman, was just putting her fingers on the bun box, INTENTLY!…
…staring coldly at it.
Kusanagi: Pretty good…! The manner of narration is quite splendid! So, what happened next?
Kamamoto: Ah… when I came to, the woman wasn't there anymore~ But I also didn’t feel like entering that room anymore, so from that moment onwards, I moved away.
Totsuka: Awesome, it’s really scary! ……By the way, are you okay, Yata?
Yata: Uh? W-what are you talking about!? There are no reason for me to be afraid…!
Kusanagi: You do not have to bluff.
Kamamoto: Totsuka-san, do you have anything scary to share?
Totsuka: Hmmm… I personally don’t have any, I guess… Ah yes, there is! But I was trying to scare the King before; it was when I put a mannequin’s head on his bed while he was sleeping. A woman’s head with the neck painted and disheveled hair!
Kusanagi: Mikoto’s reaction was?
Totsuka: Nothing. He just glanced at it, sneered and continued sleeping. And later, he just hit me once.
Yata: I think you are more frightening than those daily pranks you pulled on Mikoto-san.
Kusanagi: Well, it’s not really unusual to see female on Mikoto’s bed though… and I’ve seen horrible things too… I’m talking about Anna.
Totsuka: You’re right. Sometimes when it’s still pitch-dark, Anna would sit still, waiting for the King to wake up.
Kamamoto: Before this when I saw it, she was gazing intently at his face from above, sitting quietly…
Yata: Enough, that’s scary too!
Kusanagi: In some way, mannequin head is no big deal to him.
Totsuka: She’s like a doll after all!
All: -laughs- (Kamamoto: Doll eh?) *tingggg*
Yata: Kusanagi-san, enough already…
Kusanagi: Just now, it wasn’t me.
Yata: Nonsense! But… *tingggg tingggg*
Anna: …Thus, when the time passes, you make a "Ting!“ with the glass?
Kusanagi: Horo!!! …Anna. You’re not here to see us, are you?
Anna: I have been listening to the ghost stories from somewhere close the whole time. I want to tell a ghost story too… can I?
Totsuka: Haha, we’re beaten…
Kamamoto: Wait, Yata-san! Please don’t escape..!
Yata: I-idiot..! Sorry but this one is seriously the scariest!
Anna: This ghost story is about four men whose at their feet was a woman who held manjuu in her hands and had been killed by them.
The story, my buddy bought a bike she was blown up and it locked up the bottom end, not a big deal bought it got it home looked it over it and turns out it was a POS, so we said fuck it and bought every damn piece of the bike and rebuilt it completely. every bearing was replaced, every seal, all the suspension EVERYTHING, it got built and we took it out for 2 test rides to find out we were spewing fluids from between the 2 cases, took the motor back out tonight (2nd last picture) because the retared we bought it from tried to split the case with screwdrivers and fucked up the case to we ’re gonna split the case again and gob her up with gasket maker and put it back together for the 2nd time now… hopefully she works good now!
Dylan woke up startled by his phone vibrating under his body. He moved his arm slowly to grab it, trying not to wake his boyfriend. He looked at he screen with blurry eyes and read “The puppy is ready.” Thats when his vision came back full blast & he struggled to get off of Liam quietly, but was relived to see that he hadn’t woken the boy up. He walked over to closet & grabbed a hoodie & some sweatpants before heading over to shower to clean himself & brush his teeth. When the boy was finally done he realized that he had left his towel hanging behind the door and that he’d have to place his wet feet on the floor which he knew Liam hated. “Fuck, cold, cold” He mumbled under his breath hopping from tile to tile in order to reach his towel & dry himself.
When he was done with preperations he got in his car and drove to the renedezvous where he picked up a very special present from one of his friends. One of his old friend’s dog had a giant litter & decided to sell them, so Dylan bought one for Liam because he knew how much he always wanted a small dog. It was cold out, so cold that it surprised Dylan. He had to place the puppy inside the hoodie pocket because he knew that the puppy would become sick if he hadn’t.
On his drive back he couldn’t stop thinking about how happy Liam would be. “Hey, that tickles, haha” He told the puppy as it stuck then boys finger in his mouth and chewed at it with his gums. He hurried upstairs when he arrived back home & laid down slowly, taking the puppy out of his hoodie to place it on the bed.
The puppy looked around shyly inspecting his new dads’ bed. When he spotted Liam sleeping he cocked his head to the side and skipped toward his face, licking his cheek softly when he reached it. “Aww” Dylan whispered almost dying of cuteness. Dylan was surprised by the fact that the puppy hadn’t woken Liam. Eventually the puppy got tired & yawned before cuddling into Liam’s arms to fall asleep. “Oh my god how cute” he whispered and the puppy opened his eyes getting up to lick at Liam’s cheek again.
Brendon slowly ate his meal, the break room quiet with the exception of the ticking of the clock. He was frowning, deeply, and found himself glancing up to check the time. He was finding that he didn’t like the silence, he didn’t like how long it was taking his break to pass by. He was alone and what frustrated him the most was that that aloneness… was bothering him.
He took another bite of his chicken fried rice and almost scowled as he glared down at the table. This was his first time away from home, his first time being truly alone, being truly responsible. And, he had been doing fine until today…
Why were these feelings plaguing him?
He couldn’t take a break from work when he had just started. That wasn’t an option, and he was hardly the type of person to take off from work in the first place. Yet, was he actually experiencing something so insufferable that he was sitting here contemplating his lack of ability to take time off?
Brendon sighed heavily, feeling all the more irritated. He stood from the table and placed the lid back over his meal, tossing it back into the fridge before taking his leave from the room. He was irritated with himself, irritated with his circumstances, just irritated in general.
