Chapter 6 – More comrades?
Pairing: main G27, eventual AsarixG (?)
Disclaimer: None of the characters are mine…except my (virtual) granny, Tsukina, and other OCs.
Err, in case you're confused, the words in Italics are Italian, the one in usual typing is in Japanese. BUT apparently I can't speak Japanese or write or even understand it, so yeah. This is an English fic after all.
Jem was twelve. He was difficult to live with, inconsistent, moody. His appetite was appalling, and he told me so many times to stop pestering him I consulted Atticus: 'Reckon he's got a tapeworm?' Attiucs said no, Jem was growing. I must be patient with him and disturb him as little as possible.
This change in Jem had come about in a matter of weeks. Mrs. Dubose was not cold in her grave – Jem had seemed—
A twitch. Ignore, ignore.
– grateful enough for my company when he went to read to her. Overnight, it seemed—
A vein popped. A sigh, then ignorance once again.
– Jem had acquired an alien set of —
Another vein popped. A twitch.

A door opens. A pair of feet running down the stairs. The front door is opened wide. Pissed-off eyes meet another pair of pissed-off eyes.
"WHAT DO YOU WANT?"
It was a cold, lazy Saturday, and I was just reading the 'To Kill a Mockingbird' book I was told to read on my bed when the bell rang. I was in a pretty bad mood.
First, I couldn't sleep because I kept thinking about Giotto. I did try to get rid of him, to get some shut-eye, but… anything I tried, failed. All of them backfired at me, dang it.
Second, Giotto ate my share of the godly pancakes made by Tsukina because I was so sleepy I almost fell asleep on my plate.
Third, Giotto escaped before I could lay my hands on him (no pun intended).
Fourth, Tsukina ran out of ingredients to make more pancakes, so she went out to buy some.
Fifth, I left my laptop in my locker at school because it was raining and I did not want it to get wet due to the rain. So I can't go online—and this, dear readers, leads us to the sixth.
I'm all alone in this house.
Well, not so much now. Originally, I decided to ignore the person who rang the bell. This house is not mine, so I don't have the right to open the door to someone I might not know.
But then the person annoyed me so much to the point that my patience snapped.
I opened the door to see…
An exact replica of Gokudera, only with red hair and flame-shaped tattoo on his right cheek, with Yamamoto, only with the (ancient) Japanese costume (complete with the hat) you only see in manga and movies.
"…Who the hell are you?" the red-version of Gokudera asked in Italian. Rudely, I might add.
Crap, I thought, I opened the door to some weirdo that might be some kind of gangsters.
"...I'm sorry." I tried to close the door hurriedly. The door almost reached the panel until a shoe stepped in-between the door and its panel. I almost screamed. Then a hand gripped the door and started forcing it open as I keep pulling the door so it won't open.
I lost, apparently.
The door opened, again, to the two mysterious people; one glaring at me and the other one smiling. The smiling one suddenly stepped forward and pushed the other one back and smiled at me kindly.
"Excuse me, but this is Giotto's house…right?" he asked in perfect, fluent Japanese. I smiled back to him. "...may I ask who are you first?"
The man seemed to realize something. "Oh, we're sorry. My name is Asari Ugetsu, and that one over there is G. We're Giotto-san's acquaintances."
I ohh-ed. Since they look suspicious, I decided to ask them one more thing…in Italian. Giotto's acquaintances must be able to speak Italian or at least English, because that ehemdumbehem teacher can't speak Japanese. "Okay…so Giotto's not here. Do you have any messages I can pass to him?"
He seemed to understand it. Then he chuckles and said, "We'll just wait, I guess. There's no reason to be scared of us, really…". This guy seems to be really friendly…but not that one over there that keeps glaring at me the whole time.
I decided to trust them. My mind's been screaming to me to do that anyway.
"Okay then, please come in. I don't know where Giotto went or when he will be back, though." I smiled a small smile as I gestured them to enter the house. These two seemed to be very familiar with the house. The guy named G went in first and headed to the living room, and the Asari guy seemed to wait for me as I close the door. I turned to him, and he smiled at me melancholically.
"…long time no see, Ellenois."
I was, for the lack of words, bombarded by the memories of the now-recognized Asari and, surprisingly not that surprising, G. Asari, just like Tsukina, remembers the memories from 400 years ago. I flinched back as a massive headache attacked me along with the pouring of words, yells, shouts, pictures, shots, tears, and smiles unto the memories I had. My legs gave out under me and I fell onto the floor, still focused on the pain in my head rather than my bottom. Someone yelled something, and Asari quickly kneeled down to the floor, asking me whether I'm okay. I muttered it's nothing and waited for a little bit until the pain subsided.
I let out the breath I didn't realize I've been holding.
Turns out it was G who yelled. Asari went to the kitchen, knowing just what is where as he took a glass of water. He went back and gave it to me.
"Sorry about that." I apologized to Asari and G. "Are you okay?" Asari asked, in which I replied yes, I am fine. G only grunted a bit, and went to sit on one of the couches.
"That was the memories' attack, huh?" Asari asked knowingly. I only nodded. Then I smiled.
"It's nice to meet you again, Asari…-chan."

The quote from the book "To Kill a Mockingbird" was from Chapter 12 (the first chapter of Section 2), the very first paragraph there. It does not have any relation with the fanfiction, actually. I'm currently reading that book at school, so yeah 3 I picked that quotations COMPLETELY RANDOMLY.
To Kill a Mockingbird Harper Lee
