Gonna post my Into on AIM with Hatori first then, random thoughts from chat:
GracefulArcher: Walking onto the compund, Hiro looked around and the emptiness of it all with a grimace. "Pheh...it's always like this." Walking down a familiar lane, he soom came across Hatori's building and nimbly stepped up the steps into his office. "Hatori-san! It's me!"
QueenMebd3: *looks up from his paperwork* Hiro?
GracefulArcher: "Hai, I'm back," he said, plopping his butt ontop of the older man's desk and distrupting his work with a smirk. "Miss me? Anyway what's been going on around here? I've heard some rumors and things going about...not all of which are pleasent."
QueenMebd3: *looks down at his squished papers with exasperation, then looks back up at Hiro* Kii's home.
GracefulArcher: "Kii?" *raises an eyebrow* "Who's Kii?"
QueenMebd3: Kagami. My sister. She's back from the US.
GracefulArcher: And why is everyone making such a huge fuss? *scowls* I mean she's just another person here to screw things up for people. (clenches fist* And why haven't I seen Kisa anywhere?!
QueenMebd3: *sighs, pushes back from his desk and stands* I haven't seen her lately, either... She's around, Hiro. *looks at him out of the corners of his eyes* She's missed you.
GracefulArcher: *blushes but looks away* Pheh. Whatever, it doesn't matter she doesn't need me with everyone else around. (squishes paper in his fist) So why is Akito making such a fuss about everyone lately?
QueenMebd3: *shakes his head* It's Kii. He's hated her from the very beginning, and now he knows she's back.
GracefulArcher: Heh looks like someone is taking the spotlight from Tohru for the time being. Pheh, whatever the matters of adult's is fickle.
QueenMebd3: *clears his throat* Watch who you say that to, little one.
GracefulArcher: *smirks* I may be little but I know a hella lot more then some of you who call yourself adults. *jumps off table* But either way it seems Akito has chosen another person to bother. Aren't you worried for her safety? Since she *is* your sister afterall.
QueenMebd3: Of course I'm worried for her. It's just that I can't make decisions for her - she's her own person.
GracefulArcher: But sometimes as someone who cares you must interfere to protect the ones you care for. (wearing a solemn expression and looks down) It's not a matter of right or wrong, who said, who did. It's about the feelings you feel while all this happens around. To feel helpless and do nothing when you know certain things are happening...I can't imagine being able to do that. (Looks at Hatori in the eyes) So don't give me such a lame excuse old man. Even if you can't make her end decisions, you can do what you can to help her make the right ones, even if she cant see that right now. *brushes past him and out the door* Why don't we head over to where she is anyway. I want to meet this girl.
QueenMebd3: *stares after him for a second, then darts after him* Okay, okay, I'm coming!
'I often wondered what the difference was between the feelings of an adult and that of a child, like myself. I've come to realize, after this afternoon that there is no difference. The pain we feel is the same as an adults and the emotions we feel now will still be there when our bodies grow older.' Hiro looked over his writings solemnly and continued to type his memoirs, 'Kisa doesn't need me. She doesn't even seem to want me around and it has come to the fact that she is pushing me away now, instead of me walking away. Maybe...this is what I deserve. I came back because of a strong urge to see her and maybe something else. I don't know...but now I highly regret my return. I'm not needed. I'm not wanted. So what is keeping me here? All I know is I don't seem to have Kisa's love anymore. That damn cat does.' Hiro cursed silently to himself and clenched his fists in anger and hurt, before continuing to type. 'He's her prince now. So...so maybe it's time I stop trying to protect those who already have someone. Beause who is there to protect me? Growing up I've learned, is a painful process.'
