- Teacher paces a classroom calling out names-
Teacher: Alright everyone, now that you have a number, does anyone want to make a custom suggestion for a science partner?
- many kids hands shoot up and the teacher calls them out-
Yomoru: (to himself) I feel so bad for Ukushi... she tries so hard and barely passes... I have to help her out... I know!
-Yomoru raises hand and calls out Ukushi-
Ukushi: -head shoots up from sketchbook- What?!
GOES TO UKUSHI'S HOUSE
Yomoru: I'm sorry, but don't worry, I'll do the entire project. It's easy, just tell the lives of several animals as though you were them. I've done much harder.
Ukushi: O-okay... just tell me what to do...
Yomoru: No. Don't just let me push you around. You should voice an opinion.
Ukushi: I'd rather not...
Yomoru: Okay then... baby steps... How about we do the project at my house?
Ukushi: Uh... okay.
GOES TO THE STREET. A CAB PULLS UP TO A CURB AND THE TWO GET IN.
Yomoru: -tells driver where to go- (to Ukushi) It won't take long.
-Cab bursts a tire and skids off course. It rolls off a hill and into the forest-
IN THE FOREST
Yomoru: You hurt? Aah... God.
Ukushi: No... Yes... We should go...
-They climb out and Yokomu checks the cab driver-
Yomoru: He's alive, but unconcious. And it's getting dark soon...
Ukushi: And it's winter! I didn't dress warm enough!
Yomoru: Calm yourself! We need to find or make shelter! Get some sticks for a fire... the road's too far away. We rolled away too much.
???: Hey... you seem to be in pain.
Yomoru: Ukushi, get behind me! Who are you?!
???: -jumps down and lands in front of them- My name is Koman. I am... uh... very giving.
Ukushi: (To herself) This all started with Yomoru and that stupid project...
Yomoru: We aren't just gonna go with anyone who comes up to us.
Koman: You wanna stay in a house for the night or have to cuddle for warmth with... -gestures to Ukushi- that?
Ukushi: -blushes but is also frustrated-
Koman: Just joking! You don't have to close your eyes... The girl though? She sleeps on the couch...
Yomoru: (cautiously) Fine... but don't try anything funny... I know karate.
Koman: -smirks- (quietly) That wouldn't help anything out here.
GOES TO A MANSION
Koman: (to himself) I think I'm forgetting something...)
???: Hey! Koman! Check this! Look! Look! My tail is full!
-Young boy walks into doorframe, naked, with a wet rag on his head-
???: -eyes widen and mouth slightly opens- Uh... -blushes-
-everyone's face is a deep scarlet, especially Ukushi-
Kamon: -only his face is normal- Saniku! You shouldn't just wander around naked! Put some clothes on, we have a girl over.
Saniku: But look at my tail! -points at the brown tail sprouting from his lower-back-
Yomoru: -puts hand over Ukushi's eyes- You... you have a... A tail...
Saniku: (sighs) Okay. -stops blushing and relaxes- Now I don't have to fake any emotions. Check out my tail!
Koman: Cool little brother. -messes up Saniku's hair-
Yomoru: A tail... tail. tail? A.... tail!
Saniku: ... Do I really have to put pants on?
YOKOMU WAKES UP IN A BEDROOM FUTON
Yomoru: Where am I?
Saniku: -walks in wearing only camo pants and is holding a banana in his tail- Whatcha' doin?
Yomoru: You... have a tail?! A ... tail? ... Tail?!
Saniku: -walks up and slaps Yokomu- Yeah, we get it. -takes a bite from banana-
Yomoru: You have a tail? -Saniku raises hand and Yokomu quickly adds- It's a question!
Saniku: Oh... Well that's different. I am a monkey spirit, prodegy of the Dobu Family!
GOES TO UKUSHI AND KOMAN IN THE KITCHEN
Ukushi: No way!
Koman: Yep. Everyone in the Dobu Family is or is possesed by an animal spirit. I am a wolf, and of course, Saniku is a monkey.
