[ Gojyo's shirt won't stay on. This is really annoying. He doesn't have any problem going around without a shirt on - in fact, he kinda enjoys it - but it's still really weird that when he puts a shirt on, it doesn't stay on. Why the hell does this crazy town want him to be half-naked?

(On his back, where he can't see, are tattooed five names. Two of the men share a family name, and none of the names are familiar. They aren't relatives of anyone that anybody knows, either... just a couple ordinary guys.)

Hey. Is anyone else havin' their clothes not stay on?

[ Oh, that didn't sound too good, did it? If any perverts try to answer that, he's seriously gonna bust some heads. ]


Aug. 16th, 2010 03:35 am (UTC)
He what?!

[ Kanan? Nice, happy Kanan, Gonou's beloved sister, and somebody was going to... some guy was going to hurt her? ]
Aug. 16th, 2010 03:39 am (UTC)
[Hakkai's not sure he can say it again, not while Gojyo's making that face.]

I'm afraid... I wasn't in time to save her.

[So, of course, he blames himself.]
Aug. 16th, 2010 03:58 am (UTC)
[ But at least Hakkai killed the guy who hurt her. She got hurt, but Hakkai made sure that she wouldn't get hurt ever again. That was okay. ]

Did you kill th'baby too?

[ That's what you did with unwanted babies. Mom had told him that, many times. ]
Aug. 16th, 2010 04:25 am (UTC)

[Hakkai is stunned by that question. He hadn't had any choice in the matter.]

No, I... she died before it could be born.

[More like; killed herself because of it. But Hakkai couldn't say that, not knowing Gojyo's past and the reason his parents had tried to kill him.]
Aug. 16th, 2010 05:37 am (UTC)
[ What. What. ]

Kanan dies?

[ But... but she's Gonou's everything! She can't die! ]
Aug. 16th, 2010 05:44 am (UTC)
Yes, I'm afraid she did.
Aug. 16th, 2010 05:45 am (UTC)
You're lying!

[ For a little runt he can punch pretty hard when he wants to. Gojyo lays in to Hakkai's chest and stomach, punching aimlessly, eyes squeezed shut. ]

You're lying! You're lying, she doesn't die! She doesn't!
Aug. 16th, 2010 05:48 am (UTC)
I-I'm sorry...

[And he doesn't really understand why little Gojyo is so upset. But he'll take any abuse that Gojyo has to give him.]

I'm sorry, I....
Aug. 16th, 2010 05:53 am (UTC)

[ One last punch - a shove, really - and Gojyo steps back, scrubbing a forearm over his eyes. ]

How does he get her? Where? If Gonou can't save her, then I will.
Aug. 16th, 2010 05:59 am (UTC)
Gojyo, you can't...

[He doesn't know how to put it into words, and his voice is breaking. What can he say? Some things are meant to happen? But that's useless.

Even if Gojyo tried, there would be too many for him.]

There are some things you just can't stop.
Aug. 16th, 2010 06:11 am (UTC)
Bullshit. She's his sister, and I'm not gonna let her die!
Aug. 16th, 2010 06:14 am (UTC)
I wish it were that simple.
Aug. 16th, 2010 06:19 am (UTC)
Tell me. When an' where is she gonna get hurt? I'll be there.
Aug. 16th, 2010 06:24 am (UTC)
She was taken from our home, and...

[And he can't finish the rest. He can't bare thinking about that place.]
Aug. 16th, 2010 06:38 am (UTC)
[ If someone takes what's yours, you take it back. If Gojyo had the chance to go back in time a year and save his mom's life, he wouldn't hesitate. Why are you hesitating, Hakkai? ]

An' this time she won't be.
Aug. 16th, 2010 06:46 am (UTC)
[But he already tried to take it back. He tried so hard... and failed anyway. If he could, he would go back in time and whisk her away so that they would never find her, but... was something like that even possible?]
Aug. 16th, 2010 06:56 am (UTC)
[ Maybe not for Hakkai. But Gojyo's friend Gonou was only a kid himself. He hadn't met his Kanan yet, and he certainly hadn't lost her. And if Gojyo had anything to say about it, he never would. ]

I'll keep your secret. You keep mine, too.
Aug. 16th, 2010 07:00 am (UTC)
I will. I promise.

...and, I'm sorry for what I said. I really do hope that you save her.
Aug. 16th, 2010 07:04 am (UTC)
[ He will. He'll save her no matter what.

But for now he needs a cigarette and to find a place to hide until these tattoos disappear. The last thing he needs is for Gonou - or Kougyoku - to see them.
Aug. 16th, 2010 03:59 pm (UTC)
[Well, Hakkai can't help with the cigarette, but...]

Do you have a place to go?
Aug. 16th, 2010 05:45 pm (UTC)

[ Oh, did he mean, like, a house? ]

I live in th'restaurant with Gonou. Th'big one, with the windows.
Aug. 16th, 2010 05:49 pm (UTC)
Ah... a restaurant? But... you don't have a home?

[This is terrible. Hakkai is going to have to find a nice, three-bedroom house on the outskirts of town and take in all the kids who are stuck in this place. Living in restaurants simply won't do.]
Aug. 16th, 2010 05:59 pm (UTC)
[ Is this guy deaf? A restaurant. It's got a roof and four walls, and there's lots of food. It's better than a house! ]

We've got beds.

[ They don't sleep in the ovens or anything. There's a couple cots in the back, with bedding scrounged from a broken into totally open department store. It's really pretty nice! ]
Aug. 16th, 2010 06:11 pm (UTC)
Yes, but that's still... restaurants aren't made for living in.

[Though, he supposes that it's not necessarily a bad place to live. As long as there are beds. A restaurant would naturally have bathrooms and a large kitchen, and he supposes that there's always the laundromat, but...]
Aug. 16th, 2010 06:20 pm (UTC)
It's better'n the alley. Better'n sleepin' out.
