Even after living in countries outside of Japan for several years now, I suppose it still surprises me to find that a holiday like Valentine's Day is celebrated so differently. The different way cultures handle things is interesting to me and sometimes I wonder if I'll ever really get used to it.

At least the customers in the shop have been pleasant today. It's hard to tell how they will be as it gets closer to being a touch late to get a gift for someone.

[Everyone is treated to a nice shirtless image of Aya's back with a set of wings. Anyone can see the terrible scars that litter his pale skin as he tosses water on to his face from the sink in the bathroom. So far he hasn't noticed that the community has captured his image from a source that isn't the computer.

Rising up to his full height, he grabs a hair tie and studies his reflection in the bathroom mirror before heading out.

He'll respond later when he sees this has recorded.]

[ooc: Sorry the pic is small!]

[Aya can be found at one of the counters for the shop. It looks like it's closed for the day and that he's the only one in there for now, completely surrounded by flowers. Apparently he is working on some last minute arrangements.

He glances over at the laptop he has nearby, he's been checking on invoices too. Oh. It seems like the community has missed Aya and is bringing him back out into the open. He smiles a little.]

It looks like I've been caught doing some overtime. It's nice to see all of you again and I'm sorry that I've been absent for awhile.

[There's a little boy sitting on a bench in London. For those who know where Aya lives (which is very few indeed), they will know that he's only a short distance away from his house. Specifically at a nearby park. He looks completely lost and oddly enough he has the same eye color and hair color as Aya...]

Where am I?

[The lady he's tried talking to frowns because she can't understand him. He doesn't speak English after all. She tries talking to him but when he can't understand her, he runs. She calls after him but he doesn't listen. He doesn't know that she can't speak Japanese.]

[ooc: Schuldig saved up his apple for something special and shipped if off! Aya got it from a nice lady who made it into a tart. He ate it and now he's bb!Ran! Enjoy!]

[Aya sighs as he gets on his phone to call this in. But after what he's seen...]

For those of you who knew Chloe, it seems that he can no longer access the community.

I'm sorry that you won't be able to get in touch with him anymore but thank you to those who befriended him.

[Hello community.

There is a cat staring at the computer.

It doesn't look thrilled.

Nope. It looks pissed.]

Accidental Voice  
[The computer comes on in the middle of what is apparently a phone conversation.]

Yeah. It's good to hear your voice too.

[Aya's voice almost sounds a little pained...saddened.]

I am. I'm...I'm happy.

[He lets out a little laugh.]

I know. I'm sorry.

[A pause.]

You're happy, right? Where you are?

[A longer pause.]

...Take care. I love you, Aya. [The snap of a cellphone being shut then the sounds of being taken apart as the recording ends.]

[The image shows off the interior of a flower shop where there are some young men hard at work. Well some of them.

It seems that Chloe is talking to a young boy with dark hair about reading glasses. The pros and cons of them. Ken is moving a large pot.

But the focus is mostly on the redhead who is calmly arranging flowers. Beside him sits one that is already finished. And in front of him is one that he's currently working on.]


[Aya glances over at Chloe and the boy and lifts a brow.]

Yuki, could you go and get me some more lilies? I need to make two more of these.

[The boy nods and heads off to go do that and Aya returns to his work only to blink at the computer near him.]

The community is recording us again...

I would like to apologize to everyone that I spoke with during the past week. It would appear that the virus from the community made me act as though I'd consumed a great deal of alcohol.

Normally I don't act like that and I hope that you will excuse my behavior.

[As for Ken, there is a purple hyachinth tied with a ribbon to a hydrangea cluster left on his pillow. His apology to him.]

[Hello everyone. Today you are treated to Aya returning home (apparently his computer felt you should see this). He seems to be stumbling and weaving about. Oh wait, is that him running into a table? Yep. That's a table he ran into.

He blinks at it as if it somehow jumped out to get him.]

Ken? Did we move...the table?

[His speech is all slurred and he's oddly fascinated by how the table moved.

How much did he have to drink anyway?]

[It's just your typical day at this household. The laptop is open to show the kitchen where Ken seems to be happily cooking something and wearing a cute apron. His movements are a little stiff but he seems to be managing well enough.

What is also significant is that there is a redhead who is following him around and watching him like a hawk. He's obviously worried about him.

Which the brunette notices. He spins around on Aya waving a spatula at him causing Aya to blink in surprise.]

Look! I told you I'm fine, Aya. So go sit down while I finish this!

[Aya blinks some more because...that was a shock. Then he frowns and crosses his arms. Oh dear. Looks like there may be a spat between the two.]


[ooc: Obviously italics are Ken.]

[The computer seems to have turned on without aid so that the community can see Aya coming into the room carrying a large mesh bag with soccer balls in it. He seems completely exasperated.]

Ken, you have too many things. I am just getting rid of a few of them. Stay put.

[He sighs and turns to see the computer.]

...I should get rid of this too. We really don't need more than one.

[He pushes some of his hair from his face then turns the recording off.]
