PostSubject: A Morning Shop. Food is a Must. [Private]   Sun Jul 28, 2013 4:49 am




Sometimes, he absolutely hated going out in the mornings. The light got into his eyes, it became harder for him to properly hide himself, and it was just generally quite a disgusting thing for him. However, he had no choice this morning--it wasn't a school day for him, but there was something he most certainly had to do... purchase groceries. He trudged out of his front door with a grim expression and looked down at the street. It was empty. Bah. There were better things he could do with his mornings, like train, but nooooo he needed to buy food in order to keep surviving. If he could survive without food, then sure, why not... but obviously his body, being one that ran off of metabolism and spirit energy, required the food to keep itself in check and alive. With a soft sigh, he locked his door behind and launched himself over the balcony railing, falling the two stories and landing softly, calmly on his feet. He stood up straight, brushed himself off and looked to the side at the dead street with derision. Seriously, what students were awake at nine a.m on a Sunday morning, especially in a place where you were giving money weekly for merely being students. He checked his watch and touched, flicking up a quick check of his bank account. The display showed $130, which would be enough for a week's food and probably a nice lunch later on if he felt like it.

Humming quietly, he turned down the street and in a general direction; wandering down the path towards the supermarket--it was a short walk, but carrying several large bags would make the return trip feel just that much longer. It would be a bother, to say the least. A bother that he needed to go through once a week--on the day, on the hour. Sighing quietly to himself, he plodded along the path and watched the sights with an almost serene expression. Sure, he hated having to do something this bothersome; but hey--it wasn't like he was alone in his endeavour, or at least not completely. There was the occasional person walking along this road as well, and in the same direction as he--but something caught his eye, walking into the store that he was about to enter. It was... well, there were several people going in there, but one of them stood out from the rest. He'd have to further investigate, but he had to remember to shop. Women were nice, but they didn't get the food to be put on plates... that was entirely his job, and he'd be unable to forget that. Food first. That was the priority.

Ai's entire day was lousy so far. First, her dishwasher broke. Secondly, Kiokure refused to stay in his cage and forced her to bring him along. Thirdly, she had absolutely nothing to wear! She ran out of money feeding the bottomless pit she called a friend, though most knew Kiokure as her pet, and was out of money! Of course, she was lucky enough to find a couple of bucks lying around the house, and since she already bought Kiokure his food, she was able to spend this on herself. So now, with the 'little' guy wrapped around her belly, she was making her way to the store. The day was clear, at least that's what the false sky above Academy City implied for the people of the town. Ai was quite appreciative of the lengths the academy went through; it was much better than black roof it normally was. Who knew living in an underground city would be so... relaxing? Anyways... Ai made it to the store, but the moment she was about to enter the store, a certain someone decided to act up. "Kiokure!" Ai pushed his head back down into her shirt, as he attempted to escape through the collar of her shirt, "Stay!" She shot a quick glare at him and he laid his head down on her upper chest. Wrapping her jacket around her, though doing it to make him warmer, Ai glanced around. Though she did not mean to do it, this action was obviously rather suspicious. While looking around, she began stepping into the store, but something caught her eye. A man was staring at her. She looked him up and down, grabbed onto the stores door handle and opened it up, narrowing her eyes in suspicion as she walked into the store. "What was that look for?" Kiokure asked, once again peeking his little head through the collar of her shirt. "Just... thought I saw something, a man was looking at m-... No, nevermind..." she said, but then brushed it off. She walked into the first aisle and began looking around, for some reason not being able to fully kick that man from her mind.

Yeah, she noticed. He almost sighed in frustration, looking away quietly to the side for a moment just to throw her off--he waited about a second before looking back to see if she was, and no she wasn't. With a quiet chuckle, he kept a quiet eye on her for a moment more before she disappeared behind shelving and he turned back into his own shopping. Had he continued to stare, she likely would've reprimanded him: so it was a good moment to end the staring contest with a girl he'd likely never see again from more than fifteen feet away. A pity, too. She was cute. But of course, life went on, so he started to wander down the aisle with a careful intent. If he remembered correctly, he was in need of some milk first. Looking to the sides and then down to the basket he had picked up as he'd ambled into the store with eyes on another location, he found what he was looking for and reached in to pick up the smaller bottle. He didn't drink much milk, he mused, and really didn't need too much. Smiling to himself he put the white plastic bottle into his basket and continued onwards, adding margarine and some cheese into his basket. Now that he was finished with that aisle, he turned outwards and into the next, catching the eye of the girl again but continuing. In this aisle... what was he looking for next? Picking out the list from within his pocket, he quietly studied it for a moment:


  • Milk
  • Margarine
  • Cheese
  • Rice
  • Pasta
  • Tea
  • Vegetables
  • Meat
  • Eggs
  • Toiletries


"It appears... rice and pasta in this aisle. Alright." He nodded to himself and started to walk down the aisle he'd memorized over his time here. That was the thing about living in one building for your entire school life; you knew the places nearby. He'd even written his list in the order of the aisles as he remembered them. The expensive rice was the first to come in, but next came the cheap pasta. He could afford to get the nice rice; it made his life easier. After that came the tea and baking goods aisle. Kasai didn't like to bake--he really didn't enjoy cooking that much but had no choice in the matter--one could not eat takeout every day of the week. Instead, he focussed on making simple meals. Rice was a good food, and he liked high quality wherever it was involved. But now... He turned into the next aisle, and started to wander down towards his usual spot. It appeared to be there, and as he reached down to pick it up he noticed a hand appear on the same box that he was reaching to grab. Turning his head, he suddenly noticed that there was a face right next to his, and it was strikingly familiar.

"Oh."

"God damn it..." Ai said in the language of the snake. "What!?" Kiokure peeked his head out of her collar again. "That guy came into the store..." she replied. "What guy?" Kiokure asked and peeked through two buttons on her shirt, "Oh.. that guy." Kiokure brought his head back into her shirt and looked up to her. "Whatcha gonna do about it?" he asked. "Nothing..." Ai said, hoping that this was just a slight paranoia. It was just odd that the he was looking at her before, so she couldn't help it. Ai moved through the aisles the way she normally did, quickly, quietly, and avoiding everyone in them. The only problem was, that guy kept catching her attention. She was filling her basket with the few things she could buy, comparing prices to make sure she got the better deal, and that's when she saw him in the same aisle as her. It was only one time,  so she pushed it off, quickly moving on to the next aisle. "I swear... He's following me." Ai said to Kiokure. "I'll bite him!" Kiokure replied, but Ai shook her head. "That would cause more problems than it's worth." Moving on, she was able to get most of what she needed, except one item. "Last one... Good. Then we can get out of here..." she said as she made her way to the aisle. "Ahh... Your favorite, huh?" Kiokure said and Ai nodded with a sweet smile given towards him. She entered the aisle and looked around, "Where is it... Where is it..." That was it... Her final aisle and once again *he* was there. "You can't be serious..." she narrowed her eyes and decided it was time to get out of there. She looked around and saw a bag of rice. She did not pay attention to the price or what brand it was. She merely went to grab it and froze when she saw a hand heading towards the same bag, and it was the last one.

Ai turned her attention towards him... and stood up perfectly straight. "Oh?" she said in a mocking tone, mimicking his only response to their encounter. Ai's eye's widened a little as she brought the bag of rice behind her back, as if to hide it from him. She tilted her head to the side and stared at him, blinking twice. "Why are you following me?" Ai asked him and then pointed towards the front of the store, "You were staring at me out there, then you end up in the aisles that I am in! Why are you following me!?" Ai glanced him up and down, then returned her *insane* looking gaze to his face. "He's cute." Kiokure said, a low hiss coming from her shirt. Ai ignored him though, not wanting to cause any alarm, whether she agreed with his statement or not. How the hell would a snake know anyway!?!?! Last time Kiokure was found in a store, she was banned, which is why she was now forced to shop in this one. "Well!?" Ai raised her voice a little, irritated at the situation, but not stupid enough to cause problems.

"Why are you following me?" Huh? He looked up to find his face meeting that of the pretty girl. Almost instantly, his brain tried to ensure that he didn't have any problems in his looks--was his hair properly-brushed? He recalled brushing his teeth and putting on deodorant, but he wasn't sure of anything else. He tried to avoid her gaze for the first half-second or so, since he wasn't sure what she would do if they locked eyes. Honestly, he wasn't sure of anything that this girl would do--was she going to attack him for apparently 'following' him? He swallowed back his frustration at her sudden attack on his reasoning, and instead tried to give her his kindest and calmest smile.

"I'm not sure I follow." No pun intended, of course. Language was a funny thing, if you thought about it. Especially English. With a sigh, he slowly straightened up until he was staring at her from a proper position, carefully shaking his head with a chuckle. "You were staring at me out there, then you end up in the aisles that I am in! Why are you following me!?" He blinked, before laughing. He, of course, didn't laugh too loudly. If he did, then the entire store would hear him and look strangely in his direction. Instead, he merely laughed quietly, holding his stomach lightly and looking downwards--specifically at the floor so that she didn't have reason to accuse him of being a pervert--before looking back up at the girl with what was likely one of his more roguish smirks.

"Well!?"

"Well what? You seem to assume coincidence to be action--I can't believe you're serious... you are serious, right?" he hoped she wasn't, but continued, "Either way, I'm not following you. At least, I'm pretty sure I'm not--unless I'm meant to be via some divine providence." He grinned, before placing his hands in his pockets. I'd follow her anywhere. He wouldn't say that out loud. That would elicit a rather painful slap to the face. He could just disappear, though he didn't know if she had powers that countered that. "Anyways, since it was a rather rude way to be introduced--I'm Kasai. No need for surnames as of yet." His grin turned into a kindly smile with closed eyes. He didn't need to flirt too hard--or at all--right now.

"... Really?" Ai blinked a couple times, a calm look on her face, "Was that some sort of joke?" Ai quickly waved it off before he answered and just continued on questioning him. She called him out on staring at her while she was outside of the store and about how he ends up in every aisle she is in. Suddenly he began laughing at her. Ai was taken aback. Her expression shifted to slightly annoyed as she looked up at him. "What's so funny!?" she asked, "Well?" He finally spoke up, but it wasn't what she wanted. He asked her if she were serious about what she was asking. She didn't know how to reply to it. He called it a coincidence and, if he was telling the truth, she felt like an idiot. She glanced away from him, her cheeks turning annoyingly red. "Yeah... Maybe some energy beyond our control set a pre-determined path upon us, bringing us to this store on the same morning to make sure our future of being husband and wife is secured!" Ai spoke out with extreme sarcasm, though a moment later she actually giggled at it. She shook her head at herself. He went on and introduced him in a friendly manner. "Yet?" Ai raised an eyebrow. Something about him caught her interest, though she did not know what. "Yes... yet..." she said and held her hand out to him, "My name is Ai--EEEEE." She suddenly twitched a little bit, jumping slightly as she felt a tickle on her waist. She shot a glare downward towards her waist, hissing lightly. She looked back to Kasai and cleared her throat as she felt Kiokure sneaking up her shirt and to her collar. Ai brought her hand back quickly and placed it over the color to block exist. "I'm Ai.. Sorry about that... A little.. tickle..." she glanced away from Kasai and sighed, "Great first impression... I'm such a freak at times."

Well, didn't her tone change? Although she still seemed relatively annoyed, it was in a direction that he hadn't anticipated. She was starting to turn redder as the seconds went past, and although he really wanted to laugh at her for this action--it really was quite cute. If he took a moment to look over her--not too obviously--he would see that she really wasn't that shabby in terms of appearance, though he momentarily noticed a little bit of movement around her chest. Bah, he didn't care to know. Instead, he returned his gaze directly to her face, watching for any apparent signs of frustration beyond the extremely bright red cheeks.

"Yeah... Maybe some energy beyond our control set a pre-determined path upon us, bringing us to this store on the same morning to make sure our future of being husband and wife is secured!" He blinked. That was... "Part of me thinks you'd enjoy that." He had a completely straight face, and tried to hold in as much laughter as possible. Yes, he was teasing her. But no, he didn't deny her cuteness. Instead, he merely kept himself chuckling while he waited for her continued response. She asked about his 'yet' quote, but then went on to introduce herself as Ai-EEEE. Eeee? Blinking, he tilted his head lightly to the side. She... hissed. Okay.

"I'm Ai.. Sorry about that... A little.. tickle..."

"A tickle? I question the object or being that could tickle you like that, but okay." He smirked and chuckled, folding his arms and looking around. There were few other people around; especially at this time of the morning and on the weekend. "You know, I feel that we should get back to our respective shops. As interesting as it is conversing in the aisle, I worry that we may be spotted and mistaken for a young couple. I figure you wouldn't appreciate that much." He chuckled again, placing his item into his basket. While she was cute, she could also be taken--or even more depressing, gay. Instead, he would see how she acted around him a bit more, as time went on.

Her tone probably changed a little too much. She wasn't used to talking to people, let alone a man that she actually found slightly attractive. At that, he was talking to her! Most guys she came across were jerks. They made fun of her and ridiculed her until she could no longer take it. Kasai was speaking to her like a normal human being. Though there were a few times he had laughed at her, she didn't feel offended by it at all. In fact, with what had been done, she wasn't really bothered by it at all. It only made her feel like an idiot and cause her to blush a little. And then when she tried to make a joke and be sarcastic by playing off of something he said, he turned it around on her completely! For a moment she had no idea how to reply. She was stuck, at a complete loss for words for a few seconds. "Wha-What? I'd enjoy that?!" Ai said nervously as she went to step back away from him a bit and glanced off to the side, but she stopped. She thought about it for a moment, looked back to him, and glanced him up and down, making it quite obvious that she was 'checking him out'. "I have no idea. Maybe? You're not exactly bad looking. In fact, you're really attractive... Though I don't see any attractive man liking me any time soon, so... it's highly doubtful. Anyways..." Ai moved on and introduced herself in a strange manner. Kiokure had decided to be a brat and tickle her while trying to pop out of her collar again. She apologized for the yell and re-introduced herself, though he questioned her. Who could blame him? Not many people randomly jump and squeak for no apparent reason. And then he brought up a fantastic point! It was time to get back to shopping. "Oh.. Y-Yeah... Let's do that!" Ai said and began backing away from him. She took a step off to the side and walked passed him up the aisle. And then it happened... Kiokure got gutsy! Kiokure's tail came whipping out the side of Ai's shirt, shot towards Kasai's jeans, slid through the belt loop, and practically jerked Ai back towards Kasai. "Go flirt with him!" Kiokure said right before Ai went flying right back into Kasai...

And like that, their paths seemed to separate. It was kind of sad, now that he thought about it. With a sigh, he watched as she moved past him, walking behind him. He could stop her. He could turn around now, and say something. Why not? Why shouldn't he do such a thing? He prepared to turn to look behind him, before feeling something hook up against his pants. "W-woah!" Pulled backwards, he felt himself collide with the back of a person that felt small enough to be familiar. Ai had been pulled closer to him at the same time, and he looked back over his shoulder at the locks of brown hair, before closing his eyes and looking ahead. A quiet hissing sound escaped from around his ass, before he was released by the force that pulled them back together.

As easy as it would have been to merely drop into stealth and disappear, he instead decided to take the hard route--and turned around to see the person that he had been pulled back towards. "Unexpected," he took the initiative and spoke first, smiling kindly at the girl and waiting for her next words. "I suppose this means we're staying together for a longer time, huh?" Quiet laughter escaped his throat, and he placed a hand onto his right hip. "If this is the case, shall we finish our shopping together? I'd rather speak in a place less... echo-y." His eyes moved up and around the ceiling, as if looking for invisible spies.

The moment their backs made contact, Ai's face lit up in a tomato-red. She slowly turned her head back towards Kasai with wide eyes and a nervous expression. He spoke first. "Y-Yeah..." she replied as she attempted regaining her composure, "Sorry about that... I-... uh... just slipped." Ai reached behind her back and grabbed onto Kiokure, intentionally squeezing him. "I guess so..." she said in reply to his second statement as she squeezed a little harder on Kiokure. Kiokure hissed in pain and Ai continued to hold onto him, though she did not squeeze anymore. "Uh..." Ai glanced up at where he was looking and then back to him, "Sure. If you want, though I don't have much else to get... Just some rice." she explained as Kiokure slithered around and nipped at her hand. "Ow!" she pulled her hand out of the back of her shirt and looked to see a small trickle of blood. She placed it in her mouth and reached back with her other hand without thinking. "Did you just bite me?!" she said in normal English, knowing Kiokure would understand it. She pulled Kiokure straight out of her shirt and he shot out from her hand, knowing he was in trouble. His target of sanctuary, Kasai. He immediately darted towards Kasai in an attempt to wrap around his neck and hide behind him, though Ai was unsure of Kasai's reaction to that. Not many were used to a snake being around their neck, others were down right scared of them. "Kiokure!" she yelled at him in the language of the snakes as she began moving after him...

Oh, so it was just a slip-up, eh? Kasai raised his right eyebrow in suspicion, since he had definitely felt something latch onto the belt loop around the back of his jeans--and yet she seemed nonetheless embarrassed. That meant it to be likely that she hadn't pulled him, so some force had mutually pulled them together. What, was it her power or something? Her hands went behind her back, and Kasai was certain that he heard a muffled hissing noise. He'd heard the hissing a few times before, and it was making him most certainly suspicious. Ah, well, he'd likely find out what was going on at a later time. With a soft sigh, Kasai folded his arms over his chest with the eyebrow lowering back down to a manageable level.

His mind went back over his list--he could get toiletries later, so all he really needed to get was the eggs--it was a good thing that he liked to save the breakable goods for last, otherwise who knew what would happen? He lowered the basket to the ground momentarily, making sure that it was safe enough for him to rearrange things--he still hadn't put his own rice into the basket yet. Suddenly, she shouted out, before putting her hand into her shirt and speaking asked if he bit her.

"N-no, why would I bite you?" Oh god she's crazy. A snake was pulled out from her shirt and seemed to be thrown in his direction--and Kasai reacted almost completely on instinct. The snake flew towards him and went to wrap around him, but it was too late, as it wrapped around a plastic pipe that seemingly appeared out of nowhere. The pipe dropped to the ground, but it was safe to say that it landed in a way that preserved the life of the snake (minus a bit of ground shock from the fall). What had happened, though? Although nobody would be able to notice him, Kasai was standing behind the pipe, completely invisible.

Sigh. What to do? I could reappear, but she might get a fright. That said, I don't want to leave such a cute girl completely confused. What a bother. His thoughts returned, as did the appearance of his body. As he reappeared, the pipe disappeared--leaving the snake stranded on the ground. "Usually, one does not throw snakes at people when they've first met. From what I've gathered, however, he understands you and is therefore a pet. It's unusual to see someone who can speak to animals, or at least have them understand them." He smiled softly, placing his hands into his pockets. Despite the unusual circumstances, she interested him.

"Oh my god, I know he thinks I'm crazy now... Agh!" she thought to herself. This situation was just getting worse and worse. Why did Kiokure have to play cupid!? This was all his fault! And he knew it, which is why when she punished him he bit her and tried to run. Though the way this was done was not good! Kiokure shot outwards towards Kasai and something happened that she had no ability to explain whatsoever. Ai watched Kiokure wrap around a plastic... pipe... The pipe fell to the ground and after shouting towards him, she hurried over to Kiokure and picked him up. "Hey... are you okay?" she said to him as she pet the top of his head in concern. "Yeah. Fine, I am." Kiokure replied as he slowly wrapped around Ai's neck, "What happe-..." The two turned towards the reappearing man and stared at him in surprise. Ai tilted her head at him, completely ignoring what he had just said. "You disappeared." she said, stating the obvious, "Oh! Oh, and yeah... I can talk to him. I tried to keep him hidden since not many people can deal with the sight of a snake. They also don't trust in me to keep him calm. I mean... I can't blame them. He is quite poisonous, but I love him and he loves me, so he'd never do anything that would get him taken away from me." Kiokure's eyes could be seen in smile. Though animals didn't usually express themselves, it's been said that they can show how they feel in mimicry of their masters. Obviously he didn't legitimately smile, but like you can see the emotions in a humans eyes, you could see he really did care for Ai as much as she did for him. Kiokure rubbed his little scale covered head against Ai's cheek to show his own affection and Ai could not help but smile at him. "He's my best friend..." Ai said and then looked back to Kasai, "Sorry about that, though. Didn't mean to frighten you."

That was a pretty good explanation, alright. A pet snake, that she carried around with her. If she could talk to animals, it would be even better: and as she confirmed for him, it was definitely something that he could do. He smiled quietly, placing his hands deeper into his pockets and watching even her smallest movements with a well-trained eye. He wasn't sure what would happen next--but he knew that they needed to get out before the snake was noticed. So apparently this snake was poisonous... that wouldn't be a shock. Closing his eyes briefly, Kasai raised his gaze upwards to the ceiling, looking around for any errant video cameras or the like that may give away the snake's position.

"Well anyway, we need to move. Let's get our groceries done and get out of here; I'm pretty sure that they'll notice something strange is occurring eventually." He nodded and reached down, picking up his basket and checking through his mental list one more time. All that was missing, at least to him, were meat and eggs. Suddenly, it came to him: would she be a vegetarian, then? Interesting to think on that. Wandering towards the meat section--hoping that she'd followed--he decided against asking. Instead, he closed his eyes partially, thinking on what meat he'd need to survive the week.

After several meals worth of meat had been loaded onto his basket, he turned his attention to the eggs and placed a tray onto the very top. In the end, the eggs would last him two weeks--so that would help him later. Letting out a long breath of air, the man started wandering towards the counters, hopefully with Ai (and Kiokure) in tow. "I'll start paying for mine; so if you've got anything left you want to get you may want to get it quickly." He laughed softly, hoping that she didn't take his suggestion as an order. He didn't really want to piss off the cute girl with the poisonous snake right now. Not at all.

Well this seemed to be going relatively well, at least in the little black and white snakes mind. While the two talked, he cockily sat there curled around her neck with his own little grin. Frankly, it was slightly adorable for a snake, but that's something only Ai would likely think. Anyways... the two definitely agreed on something. It was time to get out of there. Ai nodded and thought for a minute, "What was that list thing I needed..." She looked in her basket and rummaged through the few items she had. "You mean the white bits you eat? Rike." Kiokure told her. "Haha. It's not rike, it's rice. And yes, thank you." Ai said and quickly grabbed the brand she usually got, this time paying a bit more attention to the price. "This is all I needed, so... I'll follow." Ai told him with a small smile when suddenly it hit her. She realized that she was about to follow this guy around the store? And then leave with him? Why? What was his game? Kasai picked up his basket and wandered towards the meat section of the store. She followed him and looked around rather blankly. Her mind was sort of in it's own little rut, wondering what the hell she was doing and what about this guy interested her so much that she'd actually follow him around! He was probably just tricking her! It had happened before. She foolishly thought someone was her friend only to be betrayed and embarrassed later on. "Would he do that?" she asked herself, sort of nervous about the answer, so she did not bring it up. She stared at him, watching him closely as his put multiple sections of meat into his basket. Once he grabbed his eggs, Ai felt a soft brush on her cheek and looked to Kiokure. "Slide back in until we leave..." she said in normal tone as she tapped the top of his head with her index finger. Kiokure obliged and slithered under her shirt until given permission to leave. "I take it you have all you need?" Ai asked him as she followed him up to the front.

"Nope... I've got all I need right in here." Ai pat the side of the basket as she stepped into the shortest line. She set her things down on the counter and allowed the cashier to ring everything up. Once the total was up, Ai pulled out her money, but realized she was about three dollars short. She looked at everything that was there and could not put any of it back! She needed the food to survive and had already gone extremely cheap when it comes to them anyway! The only other thing there was... feminine items! Obviously she couldn't get rid of them either! Ai's face turned a dark tomato red, "U-um... Is there any sort of store credit? I-I mean... I am... a student... I-It's not like I won't pay you back... And this is stuff that I r-really, really need." The woman at the counter sorrowfully shook her head no. "Oh god..." Ai's face went even redder when she turned to Kasai, "I hate, hate, hate, hate asking you this, b-but... Do you have a couple of dollars I can borrow...? I really need it and I'll pay you back as soon as I can! I swear it!"
