-Saniku walks into the kitchen, scratching his head with his tail. He is wearing the same camo pants. His eyes are noticably bloodshot-
Ukushi: Oh -blushes and looks down- hi...
Saniku: What? Oh yeah... that was awkward... -shrugs- for you... You are a highschooler, I'd of thought you'd be used to that by now. Unless of course, you ar-
Koman: Stop it Saniku. (to Yokomu) So what are you doing here?
Yomoru: Well, we -gestures to Ukushi- have a science report and were going to my house to do it. The cab fell off the road and here we are.
Saniku: Oh, that's why the dude in the car was here. We sent him home. I of course was left to confuse him and convice him that it was a dream.
Koman: Thank you, Saniku. Now go put more clothes on, seriously, it's cold and you can't transform in front of mortals.
Saniku: -makes a hand puppet- blah blah blah, whatever.
Koman: -sighs and runs hand through hair- So you know our secret. Well, not really a secret. As a wolf spirit I can sense your thought patterns and emotions. You wouldn't tell anyone, that cab guy on the other hand... well... Saniku got to him before I could. Hey, just to know, what is your project about?
Yomoru: We have to write a report as though we were animals, about animals. What they eat, their life, and habitat. That sort of thing.
Saniku: -walks in with white T-shirt on and socks- I think we could easily help you out. Besides, you rolled a far bit. To go home would be about a day and a half hike. We have a phone, you need to call your parents and see if you can stay?
Yomoru: Actually, I stay with my uncle, and he doesn't care where I go.
Saniku: Why do you li-
Koman: Don't. He doesn't want to talk about it and doesn't have the strength to cut you off.
Saniku: -looks at Ukushi- What about you?
Ukushi: -still looking down- I live alone with my mom and she is away at a buisiness trip for the month... So I'm good.
Saniku: Alright! More friends to play with!
Koman: -Saniku runs upstairs- Well, I'll set up your rooms. Follow me.
GOES TO AN EMPTY HALLWAY
Koman: This is your room, and this is yours.
Yomoru: Cool! There's a TV, and WOAH! What is that?!
Saniku: That's a Halberd. It's my brothers.
Ukushi: Thank you. Are you sure it's no bother?
Koman: None at all. Well, 50% no problem.
-Koman walks away and Saniku comes up-
Saniku: So what's your job?
Ukushi: I'm a housecleaner, but I already called and I am good for about two weeks.
Saniku: Ah. You will help clean the house with me. And, uh, try not to be too embarassed.
GOES TO KITCHEN
Koman: Saniku! Sai's here!
Saniku: AWESOME! Everybody come down!
-Ukushi and Yokomu come downstairs and meet a man-
???: Hi there. I am the fabled Sai. Sai Teku.
Ukushi: -blushes- Hi.
Saniku: -eyes narrow and rolls eyes- Great. Another Sai-Zombie.
Sai: (chuckling) Don't worry lil bro. I won't make a big deal out of this if you held up your end of the bargain.
Saniku: Good, I did. Your halberd is safe.
Yomoru: -eyes widen- You mean you had to keep the halberd safe?
Saniku: Yeah. Why? Don't tell me you-
GOES TO YOKOMU'S ROOM
-Yomoru is in the corner, covering his ears as Saniku shouts at him-
Saniku: WHAT POSSESED YOU TO PICK IT UP AND THROW IT!?!?!?!
Yomoru: I'm sorry. I thought that's how you used it.
Ukushi: Calm down Saniku.
Saniku: AND THEN IT FALLS INTO A RIVER!!! AND YOU DON'T TELL ANYONE!!! I COULD'VE SAVED IT BY NOW BUT NO!!!
Sai: No worries Saniku. I can get it.
Saniku: NO! -storms out of room and grabs door- I'll get it... -slams door shut-
GOES TO OUTSIDE
-Yomoru is there with Ukushi-
Yomoru: How strange. I really didn't think of Saniku as the aggresive type.
Ukushi: He's a monkey remember. Monkeys are care-free but have very powerful emotions not matter the emotion. Care-free is their usual, but if they are angry they are really angry. I'm sure he just needs to blow off some steam.
Yomoru: I just hope he isn't going to hold a grudge.
Sai: -walks out and joins them- Don't worry, he holds plenty of grudges. He just needs to see you prove yourself worthy of an apology first. He's very complicated. Did you hear what he wants for Christmas? No. Nobody ever does. Not even the simplest things.
GOES TO A RIVER
-Saniku is standing over it-
Saniku: I can't even protect a hunk of metal while my brother's away. Why can't I do anything right. -fists clench- I- I look away and got distracted for a second, a second and everything slipped. I don't know where it is now. Now Sai will never trust me. I'll never be a DSM... -steps into water-
GOES TO YOKOMU'S ROOM. IT'S NIGHT
Yomoru: (to himself) Saniku's not back yet. He missed dinner. -sits up- Did he get the halberd? Did he drown?!
-Yomoru puts on a jacket and beanie and leaves-
GOES TO THE RIVER. IT'S ICED OVER
Yokomu: SANIKU! SANIKU!
Saniku: -walks up behind him- What?
-Saniku is dripping wet and has a banana in his tail. He is wearing baggy cloth pants-
Yomoru: GAH! Did you get the halberd?
Saniku: -looks down- Yes. -pulls out a metal spike- This was all I could find though.
Yomoru: Sorry for that... Are you okay?
Yomoru: Wanna go back inside?
Saniku: No. I sleep outside.
Yomoru: Oh... okay.
-Yomoru goes inside and Saniku climbs up to the roof, cringing every couple steps-
IN THE MORNING. AT THE TABLE
Ukushi: Saniku! How do you feel?!
Saniku: -sneezes- Good. -sniffs- Cold.
Sai: -puts his hand on Saniku's forehead- You have a cold. You shouldn't have been in the river all night. I'm sure you will find it.
Saniku: Brother, I'm sorry. -holds out metal spike- This was all I could find.
Sai: Don't worry. -takes spike- I barely used it anyway. Thanks for trying so hard to find it. I am grateful you found this much.
Saniku: -a small grin appears- Thanks.
Ukushi: -puts hand on Saniku's shoulder- You should get some rest. You have a cold.
Saniku: Don't touch me then. -sneezes- Sorry. Night.
-Saniku walks into room, limping but nobody sees him-
Saniku: -walks into room and exhales in pain- God! -Pulls up pantleg and there is a bandage going around his left leg, blood stains the shin- Crap this hurts. -looks around- The things I do...
-Ukushi walks in-
Ukushi: Hey, I brought you some tea. -sees leg- What happened?!
Saniku: -backs up- Don't tell anyone! -eyes flash a strange blue and Ukushi's do also-
Ukushi: Okay. -gets up and leaves tea.
Saniku: GAH! -blood trickles from his eyes- Damn it! I did it again!
GOES TO KITCHEN
Yomoru: Did you talk to him?
Sai: Wait a minute. -walks up to Ukushi- What the? -eyes turn a strange orange and Ukushi falls to the ground-
Sai: Oh no. Saniku!
-Sai runs from the room upstairs Yokomu and Ukushi follow-
GOES TO SANIKU'S ROOM
Sai: Saniku! Damn!
-Sai breaks through window and rolls to ta stop on the ground, then, runs towards the river-
Yomoru: We've gotta follow! -jumps from window and lands- OW! -stands- No damage, just pain.
-Ukushi jumps as Yokomu runs off, then, Ukushi follows-
AT THE RIVER
-Saniku is lying unmoving on the riverbank-
Sai: NO! -runs up to Saniku- What happened?!
Saniku: I was stupid.
-Yomoru and Ukushi run up-
Yomoru: What happened?!
Sai: I don't know.
Saniku: Run. Quickly. You know what will happen, Sai, if you don't.
Sai: -eyes turn grim- Yes, I do. Run!
-Sai, Yokomu, and Ukushi run away-
Saniku: -stands up as a form comes out of the river and Saniku glares- You think we're done? I'm not even starting! -Saniku roars as his teeth sharpen and his muscles become defined. The shape jumps at Saniku-
GOES TO KITCHEN
Sai: (panting) When a Member of the Dobu Family's instincts become too powerful, they tranform. Only two members have ever mastered this; Saniku and Koman. Right now Saniku is probably murdering whoever hurt him, hopefully an evil thing. Anyway, some members of the Dobu Family can erase memories, bring back memories, implant fake memories, or give orders that must be followed or the person is killed. Saniku can do all of these. But, when Saniku does any of these, his eyes bleed and he can't use it twice in a day or his instincts go insane. When our instincts go too crazy, our thoughts weaken and we do whatever we truly want or are. Sort of like a mortal who is drunk, except we aren't laughed at afterwards.
-Saniku walks in, bloody. His pants are ripped up and his right eye is closed and a huge gash is going down the right of his face-
Ukushi: -stands and gasps, hands over mouth- What happened?!
Saniku: I'm taking a bath. -stumbles upstairs-
Sai: Well... seems like everything went well. He lived and managed to walk home -thump noise is heard- nevermind. -stands and walks upstairs-
Yomoru: This house will take some getting used to.
Koman: -Is in Saniku's room, cleaning up. Picks up a peice of paper- (to himself) This is for Sai, Saniku wrote to Sai? Lets see what the note is ," Dear Sai, I understand you don't have the power to do so yet, but I would like, for Christmas, to be recommended for the Dobu Society. I will eventually find and defeat a monster, so don't worry about that part. Also, the halberd is doing goo-" (to himself) So he wants to be a Dobu Society Member...
