[ 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. ]

[ 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.
Aug. 16th, 2010 06:29 pm (UTC)

[Hakkai is horrified, and appalled, and just... shocked.]

No, this... this simply will not do.
Aug. 16th, 2010 06:46 pm (UTC)
[ Yup. Just like the people at the orphanage. What's Hakkai think, that Gojyo is just going to stumble across a house with a mom and a dad and a dog and a lawn to play on? That there's anything better waiting for him than a dry bed and a full belly? That he deserves a room of his own and someone cooking for him? ]

What's wrong with it! Gonou likes it. He sleeps in the library most of th'time anyway, an' you can't even eat in there.
Aug. 16th, 2010 06:52 pm (UTC)
Well, nothing's wrong with it per se, but...

[And somehow it does not surprise him that Gonou would sleep in a library. Hakkai didn't mean to offend little Gojyo, though.]

It's just that... I think you deserve something better. No one should have to live that way.
Aug. 16th, 2010 06:58 pm (UTC)
I deserve...

[ Actually, no. He's not going to finish that sentence. He's going to finish his cigarette in silence and try to ignore his suddenly very itchy scars. ]
Aug. 16th, 2010 07:19 pm (UTC)
[He kneels, bringing himself down to Gojyo's height so that he can look him in the eyes. Hakkai doesn't mind the smoke, he's gotten used it to.]

Gojyo, do you know why your name is right here?

[He puts his hand over his heart.]
Aug. 16th, 2010 07:29 pm (UTC)
Sure. 'Cause we did it. ...You an' a big me did it.
Aug. 16th, 2010 07:32 pm (UTC)
That's true. That's why your name is on my body, but... why do you think it's right over this particular spot? After all, the other two are on my shoulders.
Aug. 16th, 2010 07:38 pm (UTC)
[ A shrug. Why was your nose in the middle of your face? It just was. Gojyo didn't think too much about symbolism or any complicated shit like that. ]

Aug. 16th, 2010 07:46 pm (UTC)
It's because, when you get bigger... much bigger than you are now... you're going to find me.

And after you save my life, we become friends. And I'm going to move in with you, and I'll cook and clean for you for awhile, and then...

I'm going to fall in love with you.
Aug. 16th, 2010 07:52 pm (UTC)
[ He knew that big-him and Hakkai got married. He knew that they banged all the time, and that they were stupid about each other, but hearing it spelled out like that...

Nobody loved him. Mama sure didn't, and Jien used to, but he hadn't said it in years, and anyway he was gone now. He knew Hakkai was going to be his friend, but this!

Aug. 17th, 2010 12:30 am (UTC)
/edited for wrong icon, sorry
Yes. I love you very much.

[You are over his heart after all, right next to his sister, and you know how he feels about her.]

So it makes me very upset to hear about you sleeping in restaurants and things like that, because I think it was better when we shared a home together.

Aug. 17th, 2010 12:39 am (UTC)
no worries!

[ Oh wow. And just imagine... if Hakkai loves him this much now, then how much will he love Gojyo when Gojyo saves Kanan from getting hurt and killed! ]

But it's okay! Because I won't live in th'restaurant forever, right? So don't worry about it!
Aug. 17th, 2010 02:13 am (UTC)
I'll try.

[Though it's not going to be easy. But he supposes it's not that bad. He can't very well ask you to move after all, and at least you have a friend with you.]
