"This day couldn't get worst..."

Maru gets off the bus and walks through Shirokin's gates. Backpack on his back and handbags on both hands, he stands in front of the main building gazing at it. 

Slowly, he moves to the admistration building to complete the registration process. 
After a few minutes, Maru comes out with a map of the dorms building and his schedule.

This was the day of his birthday and he was away from all his friends and family. Not what he had planned at all.
I hate being here.

He makes his way to the dorms and climbs the stairs. The bags were starting to bother him, he couldn't handle the weight. So, he decides to make a pile with the handbags and hold them up in his arms. Not a very bright idea, because now he couldn't balance them and he felt like they were going to fall at any minute.

Which finally did happen, when he was almost at his dorm, making an enormous sound when the bags hit the ground.

"Shit... What else's going to happen today..."

Current Location: dorm building
Current Mood: crankycranky
Current Music: sound of bags falling

Koki had been moving stuff around in his dorm when he heard the crash; curious, he opened the door, his eyes widening as he saw the mess in the hallway.

"Whoa..." he said in awe, "You okay? That's a lot for one person to carry, especially up those stairs." he observed, bending down to help clean up the mess instinctively.

Out of nowhere, Maru looks at this stranger helping him.

"Uhh, it's okay, I'm fine, thanks. You shouldn't bother yourself..."

Maru bend overas well to pick up his things. He was so embarressed that he started to blush slightly.
tanaka_koki on September 5th, 2006 12:30 am (UTC)
"Oi, don't worry about it, I don't mind. How far is your dorm?" Koki asked, grinning a little, "I'll help you take your stuff there, this is too much shit for one person." he laughed, "Eh... Tanaka Koki desu." he introduced, even if this was a weird way to meet someone.
marubeatmarubeat on September 5th, 2006 12:39 am (UTC)
Maru wasn't expecting this.

"M-my dorm it's just next door..." This was a very easy going guy.

"Nice to meet you, Tanaka-san. I'm Nakamaru Yuichi desu" does a little bow before adjusting his glasses.

"I really don't want to take your time, Tanaka-san, it should be alright now. I'm sorry, I can be clumsy sometimes and this day isn't going very good..."
tanaka_koki on September 5th, 2006 12:48 am (UTC)
"Next door? Cool." Koki said, smiling as he picked up a few of the bags Nakamaru had dropped once he had cleaned them up some, "You don't have to make it sound like such a big deal, I just wanna help, Nakamaru-san."

Koki wanted to tell the other male he didn't have to be so formal, but Nakamaru seemed to be having a bad enough day, so he'd mention it later.

"So, your day's been shitty? Sorry."
marubeat: kawaiimarubeat on September 5th, 2006 12:58 am (UTC)
"Hum hum"

Maru didn't feel easy to talk about his problems with Tanaka, they had just met.

He reached out his hand to pick up a bag, but instead of holding it, he touched Tanaka-san hand, that was already holding the bag. Maru quickly moved his hand away to pick up another thing. His cheecks became pure red as he suddenly stood up and walked to his dorm door.

He didn't want to look like a total weirdo, but he wasn't used to this contact, so he had to say something.
"When did you arrive?"
tanaka_koki on September 5th, 2006 01:05 am (UTC)
"Me? Yesterday," Koki explained, "Figured I might as well get here early." he said as he stood up, bringing Nakamaru's bags to the door. He set them down outside discreetly; it didn't seem like Nakamaru's roommate was inside yet, but he wasn't one to go barging right on into other people's dorms.

At least, not after one day of knowing each other. Maybe about a week, then yes.

"Guess I'll see you around..." he said, shoving his hand in his pockets once he had moved most of the bags. He got the feeling Nakamaru really didn't feel like talking to him.
marubeatmarubeat on September 5th, 2006 01:13 am (UTC)
"So-sorry, I didn't want to be rude or something..." He opened the door and looked inside. All empty.

"My roommate didn't arrive yet" Maru gazed down to his shoes. "Thank you for the help, it was the only nice thing that it happen today..." he lowered his voice "it's my birthday today..."
tanaka_koki on September 5th, 2006 01:18 am (UTC)
"Your birthday?!" Koki exclaimed, eyes widening, "No wonder you're in a bad mood! Nakamaru-san, this is no way to spend a birthday, I'm sorry. Anything I can do to help?" he asked, leaning against the wall as he looked at the other male.
marubeatmarubeat on September 5th, 2006 01:26 am (UTC)
"Nah, I don't think so. I'm sad I can't be with my friends. But I made a new friend, you, so it's better than nothing" Maru couldn't believe he was actually saying that to Tanaka.

"It's sad to be lonely on your birthday, you know what I mean?"
tanaka_koki on September 5th, 2006 01:38 am (UTC)
"Yeah, I know. Glad to help you some..." Koki said, smiling, "Hey, tell you what. You wanna do something to celebrate, just tell me. I'm up for it, and it seems weird for you to stay in a dorm unpacking alone on your birthday."

Turning his head towards Nakamaru, Koki flashed his most charming grin to let him know he meant it, trying to entice the other male. He never liked seeing people sad, really.

marubeatmarubeat on September 5th, 2006 01:48 am (UTC)
Maru felt his heart beat faster because of Koki's smile.
"T-that's nice of you, Ta-tanaka-san"

The reason why Maru felt that way was still unknowed even to himself. He just hoped the other male wouldn't notice.

"But I can't possibly think of anything to do here. I don't know anything around. I guess I'll just unpack"
tanaka_koki on September 5th, 2006 01:52 am (UTC)
"Alright... if you say so. But, I don't care, I'll bring you cake later from the cafeteria." Koki promised, his grin still in place, "You at least need that on your birthday!" he insisted.
marubeatmarubeat on September 5th, 2006 01:57 am (UTC)
"Oh, there's no need to bother yourself because of me, Tanaka-san" He was being so nice that Maru didn't know what to say, "But I would like a bit of cake" Maru smiled back at him.
tanaka_koki on September 5th, 2006 01:59 am (UTC)
"Heh, thought so. I'll get you some later, it'll be a little celebration. And hey, you can call me Koki-kun, or whatever else you want. I'm not real big on formality." he explained, tilting his head a little, "Don't be so down on yourself! It's your birthday, of course it matters!"
marubeatmarubeat on September 5th, 2006 02:06 am (UTC)
"Thank you... Koki-kun. You're very nice." Maru flushed.

"What's your major'" seemed like a good question to make conversation.
tanaka_koki on September 5th, 2006 02:10 am (UTC)
"English." Koki said eagerly, "With a minor in Music, too. What about you, Nakamaru-san?"

Crossing his arms over his chest, Koki looked to the other male, his smile still in place. Nakamaru seemed pretty nice, even if he didn't seem to beam his happiness like Junnosuke did. Koki couldn't blame him though, he'd feel moody too if he was moving into uni on his birthday.
marubeatmarubeat on September 5th, 2006 02:16 am (UTC)
"Performing Arts"
Maru was tired from the trip and carrying the bags, he had to seat down a little bit.
"Hmm, do you want to come in, I need to seat down for a bit"
tanaka_koki on September 5th, 2006 02:22 am (UTC)
"Sure." Koki said, nodding. He moved to pick up a few of the bags as Maru opened the door, helping the other male. He wondered how long the trip had been for Nakamaru.

"Pretty nice dorms, aren't they?" he asked, sitting in a chair in the corner as he gestured for Nakamaru to take the other seat, "Luxurious."
marubeat: classymarubeat on September 5th, 2006 02:29 am (UTC)
"Now that you meantion it, yeah, they're pretty good for a uni's dorm."
Maru takes a seat on one of the naked beds. Then turning to Koki, "If you're minoring at music, we might have a couple of classes together"

Maru enjoyed that thought. He liked Koki so far. There was something about him that was very pleasent for Maru.
tanaka_koki on September 5th, 2006 02:37 am (UTC)
"Yeah! That'd be great to have someone I know. I'm looking forward to making music this year, even if English keeps me busy."

Smiling, Koki leaned back in his chair, looking at Nakamaru intently.

"Happy birthday, by the way."
marubeatmarubeat on September 6th, 2006 04:31 pm (UTC)
"Happy birthday, by the way."

Maru looked up from his glasses to Koki, feeling his eyes on him and Maru's cheecks became even more hot.

"Oh, thanks"

He nervously got up and walked to the window. "I think music suits you... Do you like to sing? You have a cool voice."
tanaka_koki on September 6th, 2006 11:05 pm (UTC)
"You think so? Thanks," Koki replied, "Yeah, singing, rapping, all that. I like composing and dancing too, but I think I'd be bad as a Performing Arts major." he admitted with a little laugh, wondering why Nakamaru had moved so suddenly.
marubeatmarubeat on September 6th, 2006 11:19 pm (UTC)
"How can that be?" Maru's eyes moved from the window to Koki, "If you can do all that, you would be a perfect performing arts student". He smiled to make his statement.

"Actually, I have to admit the rapping isn't really a surprise, due to your style. I do some rapping myself sometimes, but my especiality it's beat boxing."
tanaka_koki on September 6th, 2006 11:42 pm (UTC)
"Beat boxing? That's great," Koki said enthusiastically, "We should try and work together sometime, ne? Especially if we share classes. That'd be a lot of fun." he continued, "Uh... unless I'm getting ahead of myself." he added. Sometimes people didn't appreciate his drive, and he wasn't quite sure about Nakamaru.
marubeatmarubeat on September 6th, 2006 11:54 pm (UTC)
Koki's enthusiasm surprises him.

"Uhh... Tha-that would be very nice, Koki-kun." Now Maru really hoped they shared classes. Koki amused him pretty much, so far.

"Know what? I'm getting kind of hungry. What if we go get that cake you talked about?" Maru takes off his glasses and puts them on one of the desks. "I mean... If you don't have anything else to do..."
tanaka_koki on September 6th, 2006 11:56 pm (UTC)
"No, I don't have any other plans." Koki said with a grin as he stood up.

Heading for the door, he looked back at Nakamaru, beckoning him with a convincing expression.

"Come on! Let's go celebrate your birthday."
marubeatmarubeat on September 7th, 2006 12:02 am (UTC)
"Yes, yes" Maru followed Koki, answering in a not so convencing way. "I guess I better enjoy it instead of feeling pity for myself." He closes the dorms door. "Thank you for making me company. Where are you from?"
tanaka_koki on September 7th, 2006 12:09 am (UTC)
"Originally, Chiba." Koki replied, "But I'm excited to be here and away from home for a while, on my own, you know?"

Going down the stairs, he looked at Nakamaru, shrugging.

"It's okay that you felt sad, don't worry. I just wanna help some." he reminded, smiling, before giving Nakamaru verbal directions to the cafeteria - Koki had made a few trips there already a useful place to know.
marubeatmarubeat on September 7th, 2006 12:19 am (UTC)
Arriving to the cafeteria, Maru felt kind of lost and he thought he wouldn't know how to come bach to the dorm's on his own.

"You are helping a lot, you know?" He tried not to look at Koki while saying that, it was very embarrassing.
tanaka_koki on September 7th, 2006 12:22 am (UTC)
"Really? Hey, I don't mind." Koki said, leading Maru over to where the desserts were, grinning, "What kind of cake? I don't know your tastes." he reminded, lowering his voice a little.
marubeatmarubeat on September 7th, 2006 12:28 am (UTC)
Maru coughed a little after Koki's words. "I li-like strawberries or cho-chocolate. How about you?"
tanaka_koki on September 7th, 2006 12:30 am (UTC)
"Those are good," Koki agreed, "I pretty much like anything. I'll try anything, too!" he said, looking around the desserts before selecting a fairly large piece of chocolate cake, moving down to the end of the long serving bar and adding strawberries on top. Grabbing two forks he offered the plate to Maru, smiling.

"Sorry there's no candles... is this good?"
marubeatmarubeat on September 7th, 2006 12:40 am (UTC)
Maru couldn't possibely be more red. "...he tries anything...only one piece of cake for both of us..." he whispered very low, so that Koki couldn't hear it.

"Uhh, sure... No need for candles, this is very good" He managed to say with a dumb smile, dying for Koki not find out his thoughts.
tanaka_koki on September 7th, 2006 12:45 am (UTC)
"Alright then." Koki said, finding a table for them in a corner, settling into his chair easily with a comfortable manner.

"Eat up, birthday boy." he said with a grin, passing Nakamaru a fork and gesturing to the cake, "I'm only gonna steal a bite, promise."
marubeatmarubeat on September 7th, 2006 12:53 am (UTC)
"No no, you can't just eat a bite. I would feel wierd if I was eating and you were looking at me, besides, you're the one who paid for it." He looked down to the cake, playing with his fork and a strawberry. "Eat with me."
tanaka_koki on September 7th, 2006 01:00 am (UTC)
"Alright, alright." Koki said as he gave in, eating one of the strawberries thoughtfully, "Hopefully your birthday isn't so bad now."

Silently Koki was glad he had bumped into Nakamaru; it was good to have someone he knew in his music classes, and he'd be even more pleased if they went on to become friends.

Taking a bite of cake, he smiled pleasantly at Nakamaru as he looked around, making a mental checklist of the other inhabitants of the cafeteria. Some were cute, but... he was enjoying his cake too much to get up at the moment. There would always be time later in the semester.
marubeatmarubeat on September 7th, 2006 01:09 am (UTC)
Watching Koki eating his strawberry it seemed to be a good birthday gift for Maru. But this was all to weird. For Maru, this feelings weren't normal to a boy. Maybe this was just because he was really appreciating the fact that someone was spending his time with him?

"Thank you" he said before taking his fork with cake into his mouth.

But Koki was looking at the other people on the cafeteria. Was he bored? Maru didn't want that. "Did you met your roommate already?"
tanaka_koki on September 7th, 2006 01:18 am (UTC)
"Yeah, his name's Taguchi Junnosuke. He's a pretty nice guy, his major is Astronomy. I think we'll get along well, which is good. I hope your roommate is nice too." Koki added as he took another bite of cake, looking at Nakamaru, "But it's nice to make friends besides your roommate, ne?"
marubeatmarubeat on September 7th, 2006 01:28 am (UTC)
"Oh, Astronomy, that's unusual." Then watched Koki taking another piece of cake to his mouth. "Yes, it is very nice" Maru answered him, smiling nervously, more than he wanted too.

"I hope my roommate will be a nice guy too."
tanaka_koki on September 7th, 2006 01:42 am (UTC)
"Well if he's not, let me know. I tend to scare people sometimes." Koki laughed, licking chocolate frosting off his lips, "But if you're ever bored, just stop by and ask for me, ne? Junno-kun's real nice, he'll get me for you."
marubeatmarubeat on September 7th, 2006 01:50 am (UTC)
"Oh, okay. But you're too nice to scare people away" Maru laughed. "I'm pretty anxious for classes to start, I miss school and cold days already." He finished the cake. "Hmm, this was very good, wasn't it?"
tanaka_koki on September 7th, 2006 01:56 am (UTC)
"Mmhmm, the food's pretty good here, I like it. Glad you think I'm nice," Koki laughed, standing up to put away the dirty dish and forks in the line, "I'm looking forward to classes, I try not to get nervous. You wanna head back to your dorm?" he asked effortlessly, not even caring if Nakamaru took another meaning to the invitation. It wasn't Koki's fault words just tumbled out of his mouth.
marubeatmarubeat on September 7th, 2006 02:12 am (UTC)
As soon as Koki's words came out of his mouth, Maru's first reaction was "Where??" Then a few seconds later, reminding himself he was being weird again and very retarded, he added "I mean, sure, I have unpacking to do" his hands started to sweat a little. Why was he reacting that way to Koki?
tanaka_koki on September 7th, 2006 02:21 am (UTC)
"Nakamaru-san, I think you're a little tired, ne?" Koki asked with a grin, "Yeah, you should probably settle in. If your roommate doesn't get here and you don't wanna explore by yourself, find me."
marubeatmarubeat on September 7th, 2006 02:43 am (UTC)
"Yes, that's probably it, I'm tired. Ne, you can call me Maru-kun." Maru stood up and followed Koki again. "Nah, don't worry, I don' want to bother you everyday, I can explore by myself. Anyways, thanks again for the cake, Koki-kun." He bowed a little.
