I yell in desperation. "C-calm down, Masami." Aiko says, grabbing my shoulders. I am Itsukuma Masami, and my sister is completely uncontrollable! Yesterday she wanted to meet with her father, and she did. Then she was sad because her father said mean things to her, so I calmed her down. Today she's outright missing and I can't find her anywhere. I called Mom and told her about it, but she just did the stupid stern adult 'Okay be calm I'll look for her don't do anything'. She always thinks she's in control, and it's infuriating! Especially now when Kaori has this awful habit of running away from us! I don't even know where she could have gone at this point. "M-masami, wait. Calm down. There's no reason to think anything is wrong, she could just be sulking somewhere again!" I.. guess that's right. But I never know for sure. >POV Vote>Masami>Kaori>Mom?>Other?
>>37801752>KaoriShould be fun!
Everyone, I have to step out for a short while, but I will be back.
>>37801752>Other?the nice monster/armor guy?
I guess "I'm going to step out for a little while" turned into "Surprise company is going to come over and take me to dinner." I'll try to make the most of what little time we have.>Kaori POV>writing
I am Magi- No, no I am Kaori. And I am so angry right now that I could scream. Maybe I will."OPEN UP!" I yell at the completely immovable door leading to the top floor of the building. Of course I don't expect it to comply with mere words .My shoulder rams into the cold steel once again. Nothing, even with super-strength granted from a magic card, I can not break down this door. This sucks, I thought I could just break the door. Or at the very least they wouldn't think to lock it. Who locks a rooftop door? I don't want to go back, not now, not yet. Not until I get Dad out of my life. I can never go back until then. My phone is buzzing in my pocket, but I ignore it. I already know who it probably is, either Mom calling to cry at me or Asai calling to taunt me. I don't need either of those right now. I want to say that I expected this, but that would mean that I had any kind of plan to begin with. Which I didn't. This is very spur of the moment righteous vengeance.ClickSomething in the door tumbles and falls into place. With a mighty push, the door flies open and smacks me right in the face! I scramble to my feet and rush toward the now completely ajar door. Just for it to slam in my face from an unseen force! I pull and tear at the handle, but to no avail. Somehow the door just opened specifically to bop me in the nose. Even the BUILDING is a jerk, how does it do it!? >"DAD I KNOW YOU'RE IN THERE, COME OUT!" >Call someone, maybe get them to open the door>"ASAI! OPEN THIS DOOR RIGHT NOW">Other?
>>37805334>"DAD I KNOW YOU'RE IN THERE, COME OUT!"
>>37805334>"ASAI! OPEN THIS DOOR RIGHT NOW"
>>37805679Well, it seems suited to the situation so...
I gotta sleep so thanks for the thread.
This "moving" stuff has not been kind to my schedule. >Next post almost up!
>>37806481Thanks for playing!
"YOU OPEN THIS DOOR RIGHT NOW!" I yell at it. Nothing."ASAI! I KNOW YOU CAN HEAR THIS SOMEHOW! OPEN UP!" Again, nothing. "DAD! I KNOW YOU'RE IN THERE! DON'T JUST IGNORE ME, I'LL FIND A WAY IN EVENTUALLY!" ...I will, I promise! A few more minutes of waiting pass by until a voice seems to pierce the exterior of the whole building. It's grimy, it's disgusting, it's slime. It's Asai. "Excuse me, Miss? Do you have your workers badge with you?" "LET ME IN RIGHT NOW!" Laughing, it's like him to always laugh at the dumbest things."Now, now, you know it's not like me to simply let anyone into my building. Why don't you state why you're here and we can work from there." >"I WANT TO TEACH THAT DUMB IDIOT THAT I AM GOOD ENOUGH TO BE HIS DAUGHTER">"I want to speak to Dad again!">"I am going to make Dad love me!" >"LET ME IN THIS DOOR OR ELSE!">Other?

>>37806898>>"LET ME IN THIS DOOR OR ELSE!"
In hindsight, that should have been obvious! >Writing!
"LET ME IN THIS DOOR OR ELSE!" Laughing, more maniacal laughing. Does he ever do anything except laugh? I would love to go in and just wipe that smug smile right off his face. I collapse onto the gravely surface of the roof. No matter how hard I fight, no matter how much I try, it's never good enough. Why is it Masami gets everything in life handed to her- "BUTI CAN'THAVEAFATHER!?"I hate myself, I hate my family, I hate this building, I hate Asai, I hate everything I've ever worked for. And.. I hate to say this.."I hate Masami." I let those words sit in my mouth for a few minutes. I can't believe I'm actually saying them, but I can't think of anything else that can explain the extreme distaste in my voice. "I HATE MASAMI!" She caused EVERYTHING. She dragged me away from home, she's the one who angered my father, she's the reason I even HAD TO GO TO SCHOOL IN THE FIRST PLACE!The whole reason I was even SENT to school was to spy on Empress and to spy on Masami. And now she has a family, and I don't have one. Why am I crying still? I don't want Asai to see me like this... Anyone but him. He'd probably just find me suffering to be the funniest thing, the JERK. The door clicks once again, but I'm not foolish enough to try rushing at it just for him to tease me. "UNLESS YOU'RE DAD GO AWAY!" I yell as the door slowly starts to open.>Cont
>>37808328>"I hate Masami."No, stop thinking that right now. I wont accept it.
>>37808487she's just misguided and full of angst, it'll get better
>>37808328"D..."He's as stone-faced as ever. This may actually mark the first time I've ever seen him in the sunlight. The light reflects poorly off his alabaster skin, revealing a multitude of liver spots and tiny imperfections. "Dad?!" "Magician." He says, only a cold glare thrown in my direction. This... is awkward. I don't even know what to say to him now. "I've told you before Magician, you are not my daughter, and I am not your father." TH-I pull at the uncomfortable suit I'm in. I don't know why I chose to wear this stupid disguise again. I just thought it would be easier to fight in if I took off the mask. But right now, I'm nervous, and starting to sweat bullets. I should have wore something cooler than this. Hold on. I hear something pounding on the other side of the door that just shut behind him. Is someone else trying to get onto the roof as well?>"You may not be, which is why I will free myself from you, right now!" >"Then I'll just have to make you my father!" >"At least tell me if you loved me. " >M-Maybe try hugs? >"I DON'T KNOW ANYMORE WHAT I WANT!">Other?
>>37808741>>"I DON'T KNOW ANYMORE WHAT I WANT!"
>>37808741>"I DON'T KNOW ANYMORE WHAT I WANT!"

>"I DON'T KNOW ANYMORE WHAT I WANT!"Writing!
I.... I..."I DON'T KNOW ANYMORE WHAT I WANT! I JUST WANT THINGS TO GO BACK THE WAY THEY WERE!" I think that's what I want, but I'm not even sure anymore. He stares at me coldly, "You can live with me again, but you can never be my daughter. As you never were. You should be wanting that, because this is the way it has always been." Every word of his is like a bullet piercing straight through my heart. I fall to my knees, not even caring if he sees me cry like this. I don't know what else to say, he's clearly won. And there's nothing I can do to ever have a family ever again. I don't have a family. He turns to leave, and I try to say something. I find myself shuddering under the tears and agony. I can't find the words that would bring my father back into my life. "B-" Is as far as I get before my face meets the gravel and the tears start to flow once more. He grabs the handle harshly and pulls at the door. The door, on the other hand, doesn't open. His hands grip into fists as he grabs the handle one more time, just for the door to not budge. "Asai." He says, sternly and coldly, "Open this door." Silence. At least Asai is a jerk to everybody. That's some consolation, right? >Say something to 'Dad'>"YOU WILL BE MY FATHER!" Attack him>Punch him in the face, what an ass>I don't know... Maybe check that call I missed. >Other?
>>37809888>"YOU WILL BE MY FATHER!" Attack himTime for despair.

>"YOU WILL BE MY FATHER!" Attack himWriting!
>>37810059Oh whoops, I'll put this into consideration>"YOU WILL BE MY FATHER!" Attack him>Punch him in the face, what an ass
"Asai, if you think this is funny then you are sorely mistaken." He says, once again in a deadpan voice.This time, I can almost sense a hint of anger and vitriol. "HEY CHAIRMAN!" I yell at him. He turns around to face me. Which was his mistake! The second his stupid block of a head comes into view, my fist pops him right across the jawline! For one time in my life, he seems genuinely confused and hurt about something! Perfect! "IF YOU DON'T WANT A DAUGHTER THAN YOU CAN HAVE A BLACK EYE INSTEAD!" I scream right in his face. My fist winds up and clocks him again, straight across his cheekbone. He stumbles back and grabs at the door handle a few more times. His face scrunches, and his voice becomes gravely. "Good girls listen to their elders." He brings his hand up, in particular his fist.On his hand is something I never really noticed before. It's a ring, with a red gem inset in the center of it. I don't really care though! My hand moves up and goes for the follow-through. For someone I always thought was scary and intimidating, he's being a real pushover right now! "Please, be a good girl." A-My hand tries to move, but it doesn't. My arms try to fight him, but they can't. I take a step back, my head feels like it's screaming. I try to reach for my phone, but my clumsy fingers drop it. And then->Cont.
>>37810552I am Itsukuma Masami. And everything is going terrible! Kaori ran off to Fortune on her own and I had to learn about it from that monster! Mom didn't even call me and tell me that she found her, what is going on over there?! Right now, I'm flying several hundred feet above the city. At this rate I should reach Fortune in a minute or two. The monster, in an extremely skilled flying maneuver, is flying only a few inches away from me at arms length. Where did he learn to do that? "Masami." He says, "Look ahead." Two.. No three dots on the horizon. They appear to be speeding toward us. "I thought this may happen. He anticipated your arrival." "Who's 'He'?!" "Asai... He was very insistent with everyone that no one interrupt this meeting." Wait.. How did Dad know about this meeting? Kaori just ran off on her own! What is going on?!"If you'd like, Masami. I can stall them while you go on ahead." >"Do that! I need to get to my sister!" >"No! We'll all fight them together! This won't take long!" >"Forget that, we'll find a way around so they don't even realize we passed them!" >Other?
>>37810640>"Do that! I need to get to my sister!" Time is of the essence.
>>37810640>"No! We'll all fight them together! This won't take long!"
>>37810640>"Forget that, we'll find a way around so they don't even realize we passed them!"
>>37810640>"Do that! I need to get to my sister!"
>>37810640>>"Do that! I need to get to my sister!"
>"Do that! I need to get to my sister!"Oh man tonight's company really sucked up a lot of time. I REALLY don't want to leave you guys on a cliffhanger. Especially this one.>writing!
"I need to get to my sister! Could you!?" I can't see any kind of face on him, but I could have swore a part of him seems to be smiling."Of course, Masami. Air combat is my specialty." Wait, it is?Without any warning, he blasts off ahead of me at the dots. I could have swore that on his charge, one of the dots turned into two dots, which both plummeted uselessly to the ground. Yikes.Without wasting any more time, I rise over the aerial fighting and make a beeline straight for Fortune. --There's the rooftop! And there's Kaori! And there's-..There's an old man that seems to be having problems opening a door. And Mom still isn't picking up her phone, what is going on!? My feet land HARD on the gravel as I assume a combat stance. Quickly, I make my way over to Kaori, who doesn't even acknowledge me as I approach."Sis!" I yell at her. Nothing.Is she deaf? What's going on? >Call out to her again! >Run over and tacklehug her, It's so nice to see sis again!>Never mind that, why is that guy having problems getting in that door?>lightly tap Kaori on the shoulder, get her attention>Other?

Rolled 1 (1d2)Split, let's see how this works out! 1. Lightly tap2. TACKLEHUGSWriting!STILL 15 MINUTES BEFORE MIDNIGHT I CAN MAKE THIS WORK!
>>37810972I'm worried that I must brace for feels...
>>37810991best case, he just froze her for a minute or two with his ringworst case, he destroyed her sould with the ring, she ded or even he corrupted her and she'll just attack everything she dislikes (so for now, us)
>>37811036He's probably just controlling her.
"Kaoriiii!" I yell at her again, no response. She seems completely frozen in place, like a statue. Quietly, I walk up behind her and tap her on the shoulder. Still nothing. No response, no words, just disturbing silence. "Asai, when I get in there you will face my wrath." Up until the big guy says that. That kind of ruined the mood. "K...Kaori?" I gently step around her to look at her face. The coloration of her face, the glimmer in her eyes, all of it seems to be missing. "KAORI!" I scream as I grab her into a hug. But unlike usual, she doesn't hug back. She feels almost cold, and clammy. The only sound I can hear is the faint sound of her breaths. "Wha-" I step back, in horror. There's only one reason she could be like this. "WHAT DID YOU DO TO MY SISTER!?" I scream at the top of my lungs at the Chairman. Who has since given up trying to get in the door and has spun around to face me. "Oh, Priestess, what timing. Help me get this door open, I know you have the power to destroy it." He says, paying no mind to my sister who stands frozen behind me. "W-WHA?!"He can't be serious."YOU'RE OUT OF YOUR MIND! WHAT DID YOU DO TO MY SISTER!?" He stares at me like a moron he is before answering, "She was being a bad girl, so I gave her a time out. It's the first and only fatherly thing I will do for her. Now, if you don't mind-" >"I AM GONNA KILL YOU!">I'll open that door WITH YOUR SKULL AS A BATTERING RAM>No... no... stay calm>I'll help BUT FIRST TURN KAORI BACK TO NORMAL YOU JERK!>Cry>Other?

>BRING KAORI BACK OR I'LL KILL YOU>CryWriting!
The tears, I can feel them burning at the edges of my eyes. "BRING KAORI BACK"But they aren't of sadness, or even fear. It's a new feeling that I'm not sure I've experienced much of. "OR I WILL KILL YOU!" Hatred, I haven't truly hated a lot of things in life. A couple monsters really got on my nerves and made me angry. This, feels different somehow.This man, this man is the first person to have ever made me feel this angry. The feeling of pure vitriol and hatred for this one man burns through my veins. Hatred for the man who has hurt my sister."I forgot Magician was a sticking point for you, Priestess. She's merely like this for a few minutes. I can make her turn back sooner, if you help me open this door." NO NO, THAT'S NOT THE DEAL I MADE."How about you turn Kaori back to normal OR I WILL THROW YOU THROUGH THAT DOOR." I was going to put Julie on, but sometime when I found out Kaori was in 'time-out' and the Chairman threatened me, I already put her on. I barely even noticed that her sword was gleaming in my hand. "You've always been quite rude, Priestess." He says, sighing. "Perhaps you need a time-out as well." There's a light scream from the other side of the door. But I pay no attention to it. Slowly, the chairman lifts his hand and shows his fist toward me. On his ring finger, there is a gold, sigil-laden band with an inset ruby. "Please learn your manners." His ring.. It makes me feel something. Something about it.. Makes me want to, um. Not sure how to put this. It's like something is different about him.>Cont.
>>37811579...Wait I know what it is."YOUR JEWELERY IS STUPID AND IT MAKES YOU LOOK FAT AND BALD!" I scream at him.Yeah! That's what it is. What a rude jerk. His face contorts, maybe for the first time I've ever seen it contort and twist into something resembling an emotion."Bu-" He just said something under his breath. "Ohh? What was that? Want to say it again?""BU-" He says again, the contorsion almost making him look like a real human. Suddenly, out of no where, a girly shriek pierces the air. "LET ME IN LET ME IN LET ME IN LET ME IN LET ME IN LET ME IN LET ME INNNN" He grabs and pulls at the door handle. It neither budges nor moves. Off in the distance, I can swear that I hear faint laughing. "Seriously.." I ask, a devious smile across my face. "You're the person that terrorized my sister for years? You're a coward!" "ASAAIIII THIS ISN'T FUNNY, SCRAMBLE THE GUARDS AT ONCE! NOW! DO IT DO IT DO IT!">Let him tremble for a bit.>Hurt him some. >Hurt him plenty>Make good on your promise about opening the door with his skull! >No, no, I wouldn't do that, I'm a good girl! Right?

>>37811659>Make good on your promise about opening the door with his skull!We're a good girl most of the time, but it would take a very good girl not to do this.
>>37811692He probably didn't intend for this to come out so soon.But now there isn't really any taken it back anymore.>>37811659>Take the ring he hurt Kaori with>And then punch him, with the ring
>>37811659> Hurt him some.I get the feeling Kaori wouldn't like it if we seriously debilitated him...unfortunately.>Take the ring. And the finger it's on, if necessary.
>>37811692 he's probably vulnerable to the ring, no more ring/chairman, no restraints for him
>>37811659>>37811689changing to>>37811713I enjoy karmic punishment
>>37811659>Let him trembleIf we hurt him, we validate every action he has ever taken against us, and will ever take against us. If we just make him puss himself in terror, then we finally have some power over the situation. I'm reminded of a line from Suits. >"at some point in the future I'm going to tell you to do something. You're not going to like it. In fact, you're going to hate it. You're going to hate it and hate me for having the gall to tell you to do it. But you'll do it anyway with no bitching or moaning. Because you OWE me one."
>>37811659>Hurt him plentyMore than some. We're not a good girl.
>>37811723We know he is vulnerable to the ring. Everyone but Masami is, because she wasn't created by the Chairman, but instead by Mom and Asai.The question is, is he vulnerable to the ring used by anyone but the Chairman.
>>37811722This is me. Changing to >>37811739 because that's a good point.
>>37811692We pretty much are playing into his hand right now, neither Mom nor Kaori will like this at all.But Masami is a little girl feeling hatred for the first time in her life, I don't really see a way to justify her not punching him hard.That would take way more restraint than she has shown sofar.
>>37811739We don't owe him shit. If he's hurt it's because he's treated living sentient beings as tools and nothing more.
>>37811787>We don't owe him shit.No, anons point was that he would owe Masami.
So. We have a split >Hurt him some>But not too much So our decision is between two things>Take the ring or>Take the ring and punch him with it I'll start writing if you want to give your opinion on that!
>>37811801>Take the ring If he can't use it responsibly, he can't have it at all.
>>37811801>Take the ring and punch him with itI take that one.
Hold on, let me recount. This is the fastest people have voted in a while!
>>37811801>Take the ring

>>37811829Definitly in the punching camp here.Twisting his arm doesn't really cut it.
>>37811908Ah wait, was this for "Punch him with the ring" instead of "punch him at all"?Because I think the former wasn't as popular as the latter.
>>37811920Former. But it's really hard to tell honestly. I think some people are confused.
>>37811938I think so too. Since most people said Take when it was explicitly about the ring, I think the majority wants to punch him, and take the ring. Not punch him with the ring.
>>37811920Yeah, I don't really see any point in punching him with the ring.
>>37811938Confused. Want to beat the bastard. So long as he ends up fucked up Im good.
>>37811938If it helps solve the confusion and tie I >>37811810Just take that one back and we do regular punch, alright?
>>37811967>>37811969Fair enough. I'll write this in. Sudden participation spike! Wow! Maybe I should do late-night threads more often!
>>37811969risking to break it, but that's sillyyet symbolic, it's what he used to hurt kaori after all >>37811987it's probably both the time (euros are starting to wake up?) and the HAPPENINGS
>>37811987Its the sweet spot, because the U.S. is just before sleep, and europe is waking up right now.
>>37811987I'm not sure about that, this is all rather chaotic.
>>37811987I want to do more than hit him once. Of course I might be underestimating Masami's strength.But just one slug seems a bit low for someone who hurt our sister. Especially when we had a number of people voting to put his head through a door.
Oh don't worry, you're going to hurt him good with more than just one punch. Sorry if I didn't make that clear. The Hospital is soon to have a new patient
>>37812013This is about if we punch him with the ring or not. The "Hurt him some" still stands.About as many people asked for restraint as people asked for putting his head through the door.>>37812013>Of course I might be underestimating Masami's strength.I think you do.
Honestly, though?I get the feeling we're gonna have to fight Kaori sooner than later. Just to at least let her get the aggression out.
>>37812013I think you are quite severely underestimating Masami's strength, which is strange considering that the Chairman just told her to break down a rather hefty door.
>>37812095Well after hitting the geezer in one of our strongest cards I imagine she won't be happy with us.
>>37812095>Fight KaoriYeah right. We'd probably just let her beat us up. We'd hurt her badly.
This man. How much control does he really have? "Chairman! I want to know exactly what kind of person you are." My smile gets bigger, I shouldn't be enjoying this, but I feel like I am. "ASAI SERIOUSLY THIS ISN'T FUNNY YOU'RE GOING TO BE UNSUMMONED FOR THIS IF YOU DON'T OPEN UP RIGHT NOW"I walk up closer, and closer to him. The more I walk, the more he struggles with the door. He spins around and slams himself against the cold steel."WAIT! PRIESTESS!" "You're the 'Master' this building, right? So I guess that means everything is your fault." "NO NO NO NONONO THAT'S NOT ENTIRELY TRUE! PRIESTESS!" Priestess..He's the one who enslaved Kaori.He's the one who nearly worked Mom to death. He's the reason I have that name. He's the reason my friends were in danger throughout their childhoodsIn the end, he's the sole reason so many people have been hurt. Maybe everyone else followed his orders, but he's still the one who made them. "W-WAIT-WAIT-WAIT PRIESTESS!" "'Priestess', Chairman?" "N-NO I MEAN MASAMI! THE KIND MASAMI!" Come on, think of something really cool! "You call me 'Priestess', but after today you will know me as Justice! And I will be the one to weigh your sins!" The first punch snaps through the air, connecting with an already reddened spot on his jawline. Little does he know, that was only the first punch. I grab him by the arm, and twist it. Which leaves him open for a kick straight to his midsection! He struggles to maintain his composure, but I don't let him stand for it! He tries once more to flash his jewelery at me. So I grab him by the palm, twist open his hand, and yank it right off! Then I sock him in the face. I think about Kaori, how long she's lived with him, how she STILL thinks he's her father, and how he's finally gone too far. With a final kick to his ribs, I send him right at the door, and straight through it! He tumbles down the stairwell before coming to a rest in one of the corners.>Cont.
>>37812293https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NFjE5A4UAJI So this is playing in my head.And I guess now in my earphones.
>>37812293Suddenly our sister hates us and mom is disappointed in us. Everything is awful for ever.
>>37812379That is the expected outcome, yeah.
>>37812386So then what do we do about it? Just cry?
>>37812395Well there is a quick end to it all. We're on the roof after all.
>>37812379We can give him an earful while wearing Haruko. We can still be a good girl.
>>37812395Whatever we do, crying will most certianly be involved.Possibly also hugs from Maeda.But I assume Masami will have a bit of a "What have I done?" moment after Dad congratulates her on being a fantastic daughter.
>>37812293>"You call me 'Priestess', but after today you will know me as Justice!Wait, we can do that? What does that do to our powers?
>>37812406How does that work?
>>37812413I don't think we can do that, Justice already exists.>>37812417Harukos healing, I assume.
>>37812421>I don't think we can do that, Justice already exists.Aren't we using Justice right now?
>>37812293Wait, there's a figure waiting just on the other side of the door! "KAORI! MASAMI!" Mom! She runs straight at Kaori, who is now showing coloration and redness on her face. Mom catches her before she falls flat onto the gravel. "SIS!" I yell as I run up behind her in a hug. "uhhhmm." She wearily replies. But at least she's replying! That's worth something! "SIS, SIS, SISTER!" I repeat over and over again."M-Masami? Mom?""SIS! WHAT IS IT!? SIS!" "..Is this real?" My eyes, it's suddenly covered in a rainstorm. Judging by how Mom's reacting, hers are as well. We clutch the newest member of our family close. These tears are not born of anger, not anymore. They're now tears of joy and relief. Relief to finally have my sister back. The three of us sit in the filthy gravel on the rooftop for what feels like an hour, crying and bawling. --We composed ourselves in time for the police to arrive.Dad felt it necessary to involve them just so no one asks why there's a beaten and battered man in the hospital with as many punch and kick marks as he has. Thankfully, he took my side. Claiming to have video evidence of him assaulting me first. How? I don't know, and I really don't want to know. We leave Fortune HQ rather wordlessly. The paramedics pass us on the way up to collect the beaten and battered Chairman. No monster or anyone in the building bothers to even make eye contact with us as we leave.Except Asai, he seemed giddy for some reason. He could barely get through talking to the police without giggling like a schoolchild. What a creepy jerk! But the people who aren't gonna take my side? Kaori, and Mom. They're still wordless, but I know deep down I'll have to confront them about it. >Cont.
>>37812455Did we make Julie from that? Might be.
>>37812483I'm not sure.
>>37812462Dinner goes by silently. None of us can think of what we want to say to one another. The silence is hurting me. Butterflies gather in my stomach each passing second. Do they hate me? Does Kaori hate me? I mean, I DID beat up her father into a pulp. That probably doesn't help the 'joining our family' thing! Every now and then she glances up at me, and her face tells her words completely.Mom didn't want Kaori and the Chairman fighting, and Kaori still thought the Chairman was her father.The butterflies are trying to escape again as Mom approaches. She has her disappointed-but-stern face on that I know too well. She sighs as she stands above me. This is it, I'm really going to get it this time.And then she wraps her arms around me. "THAT WAS SO DANGEROUS I TOLD YOU TO STAY AT SCHOOL!" Mom cries as loud as she possibly can as she clutches me. Oh, that's it?"You know I would never do that, Mom." "I KNOW, THAT'S WHY I'M SO UPSET"I look over toward Kaori, and she seems to be pouting as well. With a reddened face, she stands up and slams her hands onto the table."You know what I'm mad about, Sis!?" Wait"Did you just call me-" "I'M MAD BECAUSE YOU GOT TO BEAT HIM UP AND I DIDN'T! I REALLY TRIED TOO!" What?"Well! Um! I was worried about you! And you weren't saying anything so-" "No excuses! You got to beat him up and now I'll never get to! You're a mean sister!" I'm a!?"I'm.. a mean sister!?" "That's right!" She full-on pouts now. "Only a mean sister would beat up someone's dad without permission!" But!"I'm not mean!" I pout back at her. "Am too!" She crosses her arms. "Aiko's sister wouldn't do that, why would you!" I hear a.. giggling sound? "Mom, why are you laughing? This is serious!" "PFFFT-" She's really laughing now, but I don't get what's so funny! "YOU TWO ARE JUST SO CUTE!" Without warning, she grabs both of us into a surprise hug!"MOM, PLEASE!" >Cont
>>37812483Actually, I think it was Haruko.
>>37812547....Surprise none-drama?Also> You're a mean sister!>sister!HAH!>>37812568Haruko was our first card so that can't be it.
According to my notes, Julie is indeed justice. >Last post of the night still writing!
So far, everything's going better than expected.Thank goodness.
>>37812584>Haruko was our first card so that can't be it.Why not?
>>37812608Because we beat up Justice using Haruko.
>>37812606Actually scratch that, Justice is Haruko. I think according to the first threads where we first met her. I changed my notes sometime and forgot why I did.
>>37812622Wasn't Justice the name of a monster we defeated at some point?
>>37812625I suddenly can't remember. I think he was the first monster even. If that's true, Julie is Justice. Julie's card was from the first monster we fought.
>>37812607But do we still have the ring?
>>37812625I don't think so.
>>37812636I do remember Haruko was also called Justice. Or at least it was implied she was, but I'm also pretty sure we met a monster by that name.
>>37812661I didn't find anything about Justice in the first twelve threads, other than Haruko.
>>37812547The paramedics put the Chairman onto a stretcher. But I just smile and nod! I'm Asai- Ooh! Ooh! How about 'Itsukuma Asai!' Ha! That has such a lovely ring to it! I should put that on my business cards, and see what Empress thinks! "oooohhhhhh." A rather gruff moan emits from the battered body. "Something wrong, Sir?" "Y-." It starts to say, before returning to a whisper. "you knew this would happen, didn't you?" He says, feeling his hand for a certain something that seems to be missing. "Looking for something, Chairman?" "w-where is it?" "I think Priestess has it." I reply, trying to keep a straight face. I look over to the jester, and he looks like he's going to explode with laughter. He's the coolest guy in the building! "listen... asai... i'll be out of action for a while so-" "Of course, Chairman! You'll get all the best treatment Fortune can afford. And when you're released, we'll put you into rehab at the finest clinic-" "no that's not it at all Asai. take it from empress and her wards. desummon them and bring me the sigil" An 'Order'? "Say, Chairman, how much do you really need it?" "i.. must have it." He replies in a lower-than-whisper. "i will return.. in a few weeks. so-" "Excuse me, Doc?" I say to the men who just walked into the room. "Can you list off his injuries?" Their banal medical descriptions, it's like the gifts I got for Christmas! I look back toward him, "So you won't be 'returning' to anything. Except a wheelchair, that is. In the meantime, Fortune will need a new Chairman." "asai.. you can't be serious... you will obey. that is an ORDER!" "Yes yes! Obey orders! That is my job, and my mission! But in the meantime, I'll take the heavy weight of the crown off your shoulders." He tries to say something, but the paramedics take him away. Masami, you don't realize it but you've made your old man very proud today. You are the best daughter a father could have.>Thread End
>>37812733I can't find the name of the first monster either, looks like Julie at least has no Justice connection.
>>37812733>>33284348>"I think I was called something at one time. It was more of a name of my function than my actual role in life.>She pauses.>"I don't remember it entirely, I believe my name was simply 'Just'. Or maybe that was only part of it, I can't remember.">Forgetting your own name? That won't do.
>>37812751Excellent, Dad is happy, Mom is happy, Sis is happy. We can be a happy family now.
>>37812751I'm pretty curious to see what Asai is going to do with his new authority over Fortune.He doesn't have the command power of the Chairmen.Looks like we need to take very good care of that ring.
OH MAN THAT WAS FUN TO WRITE! I was waiting for that for so long! Staying up for three hours past when I should have gone to bed was so TOTALLY WORTH IT! Thanks to EVERYONE who made tonight possible. I'm really happy with how this turned out! Not sure when next thread will be because:Real life stuff in the next post. Don't worry! nothing bad!
>>37812773I don't think 'Dad' is a very nice guy at all. We might've just traded a cold monster for a hot one.
>>37812802Thanks for running.
>>37812802Thanks for running Heart, loved this Thread. I admit, I somewhat dreaded the potential fallout of that beat-up, nice to see our family has finally grown together.Maybe we can even beat the jerk out of Dad.
>>37812751>we made Asai happyFUUUUCK, I'd rather have opened the door for Nega-Dad like a good girl then make that sick son of a bitch happy
>>37812773We could, if dad wasn't so terrible.
>>37812802thanks for running, that really was an epic thread >>37812803 he'll go full yandere for mom soon, i bet
>>37812803We can be a happy monster family.
>>37812773>We can be a happy family now>Asai, part of our family everGet Out, think about what you just said and feel bad
>>37812820So lets test out our editing on him.
>>37812834That happy part still might be a bit difficult with three quarters hating the remainder.
Okay, okay. Real life stuff. I told my other quest this, so now it's your turn! I got a new job. A new job that will require me to move! Move where? Somewhere that currently does not have internet. I have a wireless 3G card somewhere I can use in the meantime. It's never been a very good card. It's been kind of crap ever since I bought the thing. Furthermore, I'm also not sure how much time I'll have. I can tell you right now I won't be able to run until the early hours of the morning like tonight if I get a job I have to wake up for at 6. Especially considering that I really don't want to piss off the new bosses! What does this mean? This means that the only time I may have to quest AT ALL is on the weekends or late at night! and I'm not sure how long the quest threads are going to be! The good news: I'll probably have no other form of entertainment except running quests. I don't have another computer that can play games, especially over there. It'll just be a laptop from the 00s that has problems running Matlab, much less a video game. What will this mean? How will this change the schedule? I don't really know. And I'm sorry I can't tell you. It may not change anything! I might get more time to run after I move to a city where I have no friends or family. But I want everyone to know in case it changes my schedule for the worst. Sorry for suddenly springing this on you guys, but it was kind of sudden and unexpected for me! Just a few days ago it was "When can you start working!?" and I jumped at the opportunity. So we'll work around this as time goes on! We're in the final stretch of the quest, and I intend to finish it on time! Thanks for the thread everyone!
so now that we have the ring we need to>turn that creepy jester monster into a chihuahua or something>teach Asai a lesson and make him mom's bitch>make Mom the Chairwoman of Fortune>get Kaori a chance to beat up her not Dadjust off the top of my head and all
>>37812865>I got a new job.Congratulations, I hope your new place is nice.Good Night, and thanks for letting us know.
>>37812875We can just let Kaori beat up our Dad.I'm sure the opportunity will arise.
>>37812865Best of luck with your new job. Thanks for running.
>>37812865Oh I forgot to mention, I'm moving the 14th. So there will be quests this week, next week and at the end of this week. But this Saturday and Sunday I'm going to be traveling, probably no time for it then. Probably. And next week will be spent studying for the new job. It won't just suddenly go haywire as of this thread.>>37812895>>37812879Thank you! I really appreciate it.
>>37812884actually yeah, we beat up her not Dad. only fair she gets to beat up our not Dad
>>37812908that's only fair
>>37812903i just noticed, it's the 50th threadwas that planned?
>>37812921Complete coincidence! Though I'm glad it was. If I was comparing this to a little girl show don't judge, please I would say we just entered the final arc. Episode number 39 or so. I had the idea at one time for a thread to be one episode, but I'm so slow! There's no way that would work! So you'll be seeing CPM threads for a while longer.
