He did notice that his hair wouldn't lay down straight, and that the collar of his black undershirt shirt kept drooping down his neck. It was only mildly irritating, at first. He brushed his hair down with his hands, pulled his collar up, and kept reading his paper. His hair kept falling in that weird position regardless, and the back of his shirt wouldn't stay in place either. When had it gotten so loose?

Eventually, it bothered Sanzo enough that he got up and changed his shirt, only to find that the shirt he changed into was doing the same thing. It annoyed him, so he gave up trying to read his paper and went out for a smoke instead.

He's got his back to the wall for now, but anyone who catches a glimpse of the ink on the nape of Sanzo's neck will clearly be able to read the name Cho Hakkai.

"Wh...what do you mean forced?" Goku's hands close into fists reflexively. He looks alarmed and angry. He needs to know more about these places Sanzo's been forced to go to.

"Did someone do something to you, Sanzo?"

"NO."

And that's a very resentful 'no', by the way. Because you're asking if he's been raped, right? No. Wrong. Not a chance in hell. There was no rape.

...though he was a bit rough with Gojyo, but the kappa deserved it.

"They lock two people in a room, and you can't get out until..."

While Sanzo talks his pants start to drop a little, just a few inches. As though the very mention of that other place is causing it's related tattoos to appear, the name Sha Gojyo can now be seen hugging his left hip.

"Fuck! Damn it!"

And Sanzo is not happy about it. He tries to cover it back up, but can't.

"Can't get out until what?" He doesn't like the sound of this at all, and Sanzo's vehement denials aren't convincing him that nothing bad has happened. After all, Sanzo doesn't always talk about things that have hurt him.

Goku blinks as the pants slip down to reveal a tattoo of Gojyo's name (of all things). Since when has that been there? Goku's seen Sanzo naked before at the public bath, but that tattoo was definitely not there back then. He doesn't think this is related to what they've just been talking about, but he can't help but ask-

"...Uh. What's that?"

Sanzo keeps frantically trying to pull his shirt down to cover the mark, or his pants up, neither is working. As he does this, he mutters to himself, "That's the second one today, that's what. Fucking bastard."

Eventually, he gives up. But he doesn't know how he's going to explain this. At all.

"They don't let you out until you do something disgusting."

"...What?" Goku cranes his neck to try to see what Sanzo's covering up with his shirt. He did think it was odd how the shirt hung back from his neck, but he hadn't thought there might actually be something back there. He crinkles his eyebrows as he spots another tattoo on Sanzo's neck.

What all these tattoos have to do with being in a place that forces people to have sex together is complete beyond Goku.

"You mean you had to let someone- do something to you?" He can't seem to bring himself to say the word rape. "What's that have to do with those?" He points. "They made you do that, too?"

"No, it..." Just so frustrated. Did Goku just see Hakkai's name, too? Damn.

"The tattoos are the names of people that..." And he can't bring himself to say the word 'sex' in front of Goku. "...people that you know." Yeah, that was terrible. It was true, in the biblical sense, but Hakkai is probably the only one who would understand the reference. Too bad he wasn't around to explain it to Goku. Sanzo was shit with explanations.

"And I already told you that I didn't let anyone do anything."

"...really?" Goku stares at him, trying to make sure that Sanzo isn't hiding anything. Whatever's been going on, it certainly makes Sanzo very uncomfortable, which makes Goku feel overprotective. He knows Sanzo can take care of himself, but he's not going to let anyone hurt him, if he can help it.

"And why would they tattoo names of people you know?" he asks, still looking a bit suspicious. He hates being left in the dark, as secrets make him feel like he's being shut out. Maybe it's childish, but he can't help that. "Is my name on there too, then?"
brat_monk
Aug. 15th, 2010 04:37 am (UTC)
Damn. Goku just had to ask that question, didn't he? Just when it seemed like things couldn't get any worse. Sanzo didn't pray, but if he did then he would pray to Buddha that Goku didn't ask for his name to join the others.

"They're the names of people... people that you've been intimate with, Goku. Do you know what that means?"
solaris59
Aug. 15th, 2010 04:52 am (UTC)
Goku's eyes widen.

"...You mean you had sex with them?" he says, blunt as ever.
brat_monk

Sanzo is humiliated forever. He can't look Goku in the face.

"It's not like I wanted to."

"What do you mean?? You just said no one made you do what you didn't wanna do!" Goku is getting pretty frustrated. Sanzo keeps saying one thing but then looks like he means to say another.
brat_monk
Aug. 15th, 2010 05:59 am (UTC)
This is just so annoying. Does he have to spell everything out?

"No one did, but I was trapped in one of those rooms... with the kappa. There wasn't any other way to get out. So I held him down, so that he couldn't touch me, and I... did what I needed to do."

Wonderful. Goku is going to have nightmares about that now, Sanzo just knows it. He's scarring the monkey for life. Good thing he didn't mention the fuzzy handcuffs, or the gag, or the fact that Gojyo was blind.

"What happened with Hakkai was in a different place though, so it wasn't like that."
solaris59
Aug. 16th, 2010 11:37 pm (UTC)
"........I dunno." This explanation sounds highly irregular. Sanzo would never touch Gojyo the way he admits he did, so the situation must've been pretty damn weird. The image of the two of them together doesn't gross him out or anything, but it's too unlikely to even imagine. "Why didn't you guys just...you know, bust out of there?"

He's having a hard time understanding how having sex with each other would magically unlock a door. They've been stuck in places before, and they've always resorted to force (or lock picking in one instance) to get out.
brat_monk
Aug. 17th, 2010 02:05 am (UTC)
"Because we couldn't..."

So frustrated. How can he explain this?

"Look, you can't bust out. The doors are indestructible. The first time Hakkai was put into one of those rooms, he couldn't even get out with his limiters off. There's just... no other way."
solaris59
Aug. 17th, 2010 02:13 am (UTC)
Goku frowns. Hakkai without his limiters was a scary sight. If he couldn't get a door down in that state, then the doors were indestructible, just like Sanzo says.

"...then how'd you know that was the only way? I mean, why would anyone wanna get you to have sex and stuff?"

Goku understands what sex is, but doesn't quite have a grasp on sexual perversions that might have been the motivator for such locked rooms.
brat_monk
Aug. 17th, 2010 02:18 am (UTC)
"I knew because Hakkai told me about the place before I went there."

Although, the fact that Hakkai couldn't get out wasn't the scariest thing about it.

"And how should I know why someone would do something like that? Probably because the place is run by a bunch of perverted bastards."
solaris59
Aug. 17th, 2010 02:26 am (UTC)
"You said with Hakkai it was different," Goku says, still looking rather upset by the whole thing. Sanzo says no one forced him to do anything, but it sure doesn't sound that way to Goku. He doesn't think Sanzo wanted to do those things to get out of the locked room, which by definition means he was forced.
brat_monk
Aug. 17th, 2010 02:38 am (UTC)
"It was."

Sanzo can't believe he's explaining all of this. He knows that Goku doesn't like it. Sanzo doesn't want to talk about it either, but it's not like he can do anything about that now. If he doesn't say anything, then Goku will just keep asking questions.

"That happened awhile ago. We were both stuck in this stupid place that forces you to live with strangers and brainwashes you if you do anything they don't like."
solaris59
Aug. 17th, 2010 02:44 am (UTC)
"What do you mean 'brainwashed'?" That didn't sound any more promising than being in a locked room that forces you to have sex with people. (Though the living with strangers bit didn't seem all that bad - once you got to know someone, they weren't strangers anymore).

"Like what happened to Kougaiji?"

That had been a freaky experience. Kougaiji was not himself at all. The thought that Sanzo could end up that way is not a pleasant one.
brat_monk
Aug. 17th, 2010 02:55 am (UTC)
"No, not like that. When you're brainwashed there you just act like you're happy to be there and it's normal."

It's not all that different from how Hakkai usually is, which is kinda creepy in it's own right. "Gojyo was never in that place, and you were... gone. So Hakkai and I were both pissed off about it." Actually they were sad and lonely, but Sanzo can't express any emotion other than anger.
solaris59
Aug. 17th, 2010 03:51 am (UTC)
"Oh." Goku can tell that Sanzo hasn't been brainwashed, but he looks intently into Sanzo's eyes as though he wants to make sure of it. After a long moment, he's satisfied that what he sees is the Sanzo he knows, and he relaxes a little.

"Guess that's why I haven't seen you at all at the place I've been. But I always thought that you were still in Shangri-la," he says, frowning.

Goku had been all by himself, in the place he'd been sent to. Of course he'd been lonely, but he consoled himself in the knowledge that at least the others weren't stuck there like he was. It makes him angry to think that Sanzo and the others were just sent to place even more horrible.
brat_monk
Aug. 17th, 2010 04:04 am (UTC)
Oh, believe me, if Sanzo had been brainwashed by that place, Goku would know. Sanzo would be smiling, for one thing.

"There are a lot of people here from a lot of different places, but I haven't been in Shangri-la for... probably almost two years now."

And he's not happy about it either. He can't go west here, or find his master's scripture here. There's nothing to do in this place and he feels useless. He wants to go back.
solaris59
Aug. 19th, 2010 11:52 pm (UTC)
"Two years?" Goku stares at him with surprise. "But I just saw you a few weeks ago." He scratches his head, wondering whether there's some kind of trick going on here. He was definitely in Shangri-la the last time he saw Sanzo. And actually, he does remember...

"You were...shooting at somebody. I was attacked...I never saw the guy." His eyes widen. "I was...dying."
brat_monk
Aug. 20th, 2010 12:01 am (UTC)
That earns you a frown. Sanzo does not want to hear about Goku dying, not after what happened to the monkey that was stuck in that other place with him.

But he doesn't want to talk about that either, so he's not saying anything.
