How the hell is Kenzaki in ever Tres Spades hotel whenever he is needed?
Totally not inspired by Avatar The Last Airbender.
Joo Dee = Kenzaki
Just a little funny thing I’ve had stuck in my head for a while.
Sitting in the penthouse lounge in London,
the auction managers, minus Eisuke, all seemed to have the same thought at the
same time. They watched as Kenzaki bowed to Eisuke before leaving and all
“I just had a thought.” Baba began
once Kenzaki left, “How is it, that Kenzaki is in every Tres Spades?”
“I thought I was the only one!” Ota
breathed a sigh of relief after hearing he wasn’t the only one confused about
“Do you like, transfer him to whatever
hotel you’re at? Because even if you’re in Japan for a week, Kenzaki is there,
and he’s here when you come back.” Baba continued. Eisuke’s face didn’t
change as he sipped his coffee.
“He’s almost as confusing as the Mad
Hatter.” Mamoru added.
“What if he is the Mad Hatter?” Ota
“He’s not the Mad Hatter.” Eisuke
finally said something as he finished his coffee. Realizing he was going to
need another cup if he was going to sit here and listen to this nonsense he
called Melody up.
“It’s almost like there are multiple
Kenzaki’s.” Mamoru said, sounding uninterested.
“Exactly!” Although they were all
thinking it before Baba said it, Baba was the most enthusiastic about this
topic that had been bothering him.
“There isn’t multiple Kenzaki’s.” Eisuke
huffed, starting to get irritated.
“Well then explain how he is
everywhere.” Baba demanded.
“And how you get such loyal
employees.” Soryu added when Melody entered.
“Coffee?’ Melody asked, glaring at
Eisuke when he offered her his empty cup, "I was just here.”
“That was nearly an hour ago.”
Eisuke said as she snatched up the cup.
“All this sugar will rot your
brain.” She mumbled as she went to make a new cup of coffee.
“You’re getting off topic.” Ota
interjected before Eisuke could snap back at her.
“I don’t have to explain Kenzaki to you.
He is just a loyal employee, like Melody.” Eisuke said simply.
“Yeah but you don’t sleep with
Kenzaki.” Ota said grinning. Eisuke and Melody both glared at Ota.
“But if it is that you transfer him wherever you go, he mustn’t have a
“What if he is a robot? That would
explain everything!” Baba said.
“Mr. Kenzaki is not a robot.” It
was Melody this time who shot down Baba’s idea as she handed Eisuke his coffee,
“Why are you even arguing this?”
“Because for all we know Eisuke has a
secret underground training facility where he trains clones of Kenzaki to work
in each hotel and take over any Kenzaki’s who might not meet his needs.”
Soryu said flatly, not meeting anyone’s eyes as everyone’s gaze shot to him.
Baba and Ota burst out laughing, and even
Mamoru chuckled a bit, “That’s ridiculous Sor.” Baba managed to say
through his laughs. He stopped however when he looked up and saw Eisuke. His
arms were folded and he was grinning at Soryu.
Soryu met his gaze and grinned back,
“You can’t hide anything from me Eisuke.” He said making Eisuke laugh
“Wait! So Soryu was right!?” Ota
and Baba exclaimed, shocked.
“Now I never said that.” Eisuke
said sipping his coffee.
Eisuke hated coming here. It was always so
damn hot, even with air conditioners running. But, sometimes he just had to so
he could check on the progress.
“What’s the verdict?” Eisuke asked
looking over at Kenzaki beside him.
“Fourteen failures, six successful and
ready when needed.” Kenzaki said making Eisuke nod.
“Good. Could be better but at least I
have some.” Eisuke looked back over the railing to the rows of lined up
men below, all bearing the same face and voice as the Kenzaki beside him.
Nodding approvingly at his small army of Kenzaki’s, he looked back at the one
beside him, “So do you think we could make another Soryu?”
Some Angelus aesthetics and garb. Even the mannerisms and postures match him, I think. Each image matches a scene from the story. They are not in chronological order of events:
First image: when he’s in the bedroom of the first home where he, Dru, and Spike resided in in London; Second: lounging in the parlour after Liz and Maurizio leave, leaving Spike, Dru, and him alone; Third: at Pierre’s party. Dru is taking him away for a dance; Fourth: Angelus leaving that night to return to the manor; Fifth: family night out with Liz and Spike- this is when the boys watch her kill a man; Sixth: Angelus waiting in the vestibule for the rest of his crew so they can leave for the party; Seventh: A scene that’s yet to happen in one of the future chapters (sneak peek!)
