[ He could be mistaken, but it seemed like the place spruced itself up as they walked through town. Dim dusty windows stayed dark, but the glass cleaned itself off, making the storefronts look closed, but not abandoned. And up ahead there were actual working streetlights! He was never going to get used to this place. ]

So. How did a nice girl like you end up in a place like this?














((Date post for Dokugaku and Kougyoku! If anybody wants to run into them, please post in a new subthread. Thanks!))

Thank you! I can turn this around and say that so far my afterlife has been full of nothing but very handsome men.

I sure hope this handsome man is still alive. No offense, but if I'm dead I'm going to be really disappointed!

Well... If you're dead and you don't know it then it can't make that much of a difference, can it?

So far I've been able to enjoy myself much more then I had in life.

Hey, that's good to hear! And you know, this place isn't really such a bad place to be stuck. The company certainly makes it worthwhile.

Mm... That raises the question of what a nice guy like you is doing here. Just... popped up?

Just popped up! One minute I was in the castle and the next I was here. No idea how I got here or where here is.

You live in a castle? Are you a prince?
mamasgoodboy
Jul. 30th, 2010 09:35 pm (UTC)
Me?

[ laughs ]

No, I'm no prince. I work for one, though. Prince Kougaiji, Gyumaoh's heir. He's a really good guy. You'd like him.

kougyoku
Jul. 30th, 2010 09:53 pm (UTC)
Aren't all youkai working for Prince Kougaiji? [she chuckled] But you live there and you know him? So you must be more important then just the guys in the small towns.

I'm his lieutenant. His right-hand man for almost three years now. Things are really going to change when he comes to power, for youkai and humans alike. ...And for everyone in-between.
kougyoku
Jul. 30th, 2010 11:17 pm (UTC)
Wow...

[That was very impressive considering the guy she'd been with the majority of his life could only aspire to even see the Prince's castle, let alone be his right-hand man]

I worked with youkai who wanted to impress the Prince by stealing a sutra. Otherwise I didn't know much about his plans. The idea of youkai, humans, and half-breeds getting along seems like just a dream to me.

Sutra? ...You didn't go after the Sanzo group, did you?
kougyoku
Jul. 30th, 2010 11:22 pm (UTC)
Yes, we did.

You've, um. You've got to be careful around those guys!

[ With a laugh, he snakes an arm around her waist, pulling her close. It's getting cool out, and the body heat is a welcome warmth. ]

But let's not talk about the war. There's no war here, so there's no reason to dwell on it. What kind of theater do you want to find? Movies, plays, opera?
kougyoku
Jul. 30th, 2010 11:30 pm (UTC)
Heh, well. I didn't end up dead because of them. They, actually... one guy with the Sanzo... helped me a lot.

[oh my, how forward! but she wasn't really going to complain. she closed her eyes, smiling]

Would you believe me if I said I've never been to any sort of play or movie?

[She lived a rather impoverished life, and none of her beaus exactly spoiled her.]
mamasgoodboy

[ Gojyo, you softie. Big brother's proud of you. ]

None at all? Well then we have to find a theater! With sodas and popcorn, the whole experience!

[ In fact... are those neon lights ahead and out to the right? Like the lights of a big marquee? ]
kougyoku
Jul. 30th, 2010 11:47 pm (UTC)
[He just knows it had to be his brother, doesn't he? If only Kougyoku knew...]

Oh?

[She wasn't un-excited, in fact she was very excited by the whole ordeal. At first she thought he was this suave guy, now he looking like he had a cute playful side to him. She blinked at the sight of the tacky marquee, chuckling a little to herself]

It looks like something that'd be on the outside of a brothel.

[ "One guy with Sanzo"? It sure wasn't Hakkai! ]

[ He's everybody's big brother, even when he's trying to be that suave sexy guy. He just can't help it. ]

Oh, you can't judge it by that!

[ He didn't recognize the titles on the marquee, but did it really matter? They'd be perfect for this date, whatever they were, because that's how this place worked. Right? ]

Come on, I'll buy you some chocolates.

[ Inside was big, and glitzy, and covered in brass and red velvet. Horribly tacky, like the best theaters all are, with framed posters lining the walls for movies that never existed. The whole place smells of stale popcorn and carpet cleaner, and the lights are so dim it's hard to see all the way down the hall.

There's nobody at the ticket booth, or the concessions stand, and there's nobody in the projection booth, but the sounds of previews are echoing through the open theater door way down on the left. Guess this place runs on automatic!

[Wow, she couldn't help but wince at the decor. Not that she was 'better' then any of it, she probably really belonged in this atmosphere.]

Mm, chocolates? That sounds great.

[She tilted her head, smiling at the idea. It was rare that she got to sample something that sweet.]
