Room#505
« on: October 22, 2012, 11:22:18 pm »
Niha Ichihara's dorm room. It Actually like an apartment due to his magics expanding room. His styles of living is japanese styles, including futons and Tatami mats. When entering, you will find yourself in a living room, the kitchen locates right next to it with counters and such. Going through hallway, you will find a door to bathroom, a storeroom, and his king-size bedroom with one closet and a big bathroom containing a hot spa tub and a shower.
Finally a door lead to a room where he study magics and worlds.
This is where most of his magical items and books and scrolls locate, all on few bookshelf, some on tables and some on his desk. There are musics discs locate neatly on bookshelf with radios. A couple of headphones locate in a small black box on a drawner in the far corner in living room.

Most of the themes come from Yuuko's shop.

When one enters his kitchen though, they will find alot of alcoholic drinks stores in cabinets and fridge, usually a bottle of sake on japanese coffee table with 2-4 black cushions pillows around the table in living room with two cups, suggesting that he not exactly living there "alone" either, one would wonder just how old he really is, when he look like a teen.

Bio: He is the half-brother of Mika Sasaki and Jizero, one of the sons of Deji's. Due to his misty pasts and how it was filled with tortures, experiments, tests conducted by humans scientists, he developed hatres of humans. In a different unknown world where he came from, he destroyed many humans' cities and killed thousands, maybe even more, humans until Notai stopped him and sealed him into a deep sleep, stopping the destructions. After Notai left his body to his own, he suffers side effects, including immortality.
His personality is rather... odd. He rather be alone from everythings, but when one get to know him, he actually can be softer.

Elliot enters Niha's room with his hands in his pockets looking around. "Why is your room so much bigger than mine?" He asks not noticing the 3 cups at first due to him observing everything else instead as he sat down at the table.

Niha softly laughs. "Yeah I used my magic to make it bigger to suit my taste. What kind of tea you want?" He ask as he put down a plate of rice balls on coffee table.

She came out from shower into bedroom, drying off and putting on a jean with a black T-shirt that may seem to be too big as the neck hole is almost like a one shoulder shirt. She wear a dark red tank top underneath with black bras and brushes her hair down. She stretches for moments, getting her body on track.

Elliot thinks for a moment as Georgie hops off of his head and flutters down to the table. "Orange please! With sugar and milk," he says. Then blinks and then laughs as Niha explains why his room is so big.

"Well that's not fair! You get to use your abilities to get this while the rest of us live in rinkey-dink little rooms," he joked. "You should totally do this with my room!"

Niha chuckles as he pour orange with sugar and milik in a cup on table and pets Georgie. "Maybe someday I will do you a favor to your room, maybe." He chuckles as he pours hot pyramid teas in two cups across him. (The table is like a rectangle with two seats on two longer slides and one seat on two shorter side. he went back to kitchen to put the dishes away. "Hope you like the drink." He said as he checks the Cabinet.

Elliot stopped laughing and looked away scratching the back of his head as he accepted his drink. "Well I was just joking, but if you insist then I wouldn't mind...,"the teen said taking a sip as Georgie cooed from the petting before attacking one of the rice balls that was even bigger than he was. Elliot then blinked noticing the extra cup and laughed a bit.

"And I think you joke has gone too far; Georgie doesn't need such a large cup of tea!" The teen laughed a bit as the bird looked around in cute confusion.

Niha look at Elliot with a confuse glance. "This isn't for Georgie, I still looking for his cup." he said and then look at the hallway for a min. "She should be awake by now, though."

He then resume his search for it and finally found it. "Aha! found it!" He pours waters in a cup that was wide yet short enough for Georgie to drink. He set it on the table next to Elliot so it wouldn't fall off easily. He sat down across Elliot and drink his tea.

After she was done stretching, she finally began walking out of hallway and smell the teas. "Niha-kun, were you making teas?" She said as she walk into the living room, she stop in her tracks as she spot Elliot, with her hand over her mouth. After one second she take deep breath once and then went to kitchen to get sugars and milks and pours some in her cup, she sit down next to Niha and look at Elliot. "Hello, I hope you like the teas Niha-kun made." She said while smiles.

The teen raised an eyebrow. " 'Her'," he asked, but his question was soon answered as he saw a woman walk out of Niha's bedroom. "!!!," The teen's eyes widened in surprise as he immediately thought that Niha was in a serious relationship; something that he hadn't expected from the mage. Elliot turned towards the mage and smiled about to say something when he caught a glimpse of the look Yume gave him out of the corner of his eye and the smile slowly faded from his face.

"That's... odd...," the teen thought. He then nodded at her words and took another sip of his tea as Georgie flailed in a panic before dashing over to the water dish to wash down the sticky rice that almost got caught in his throat. "Yes, it's quite good. Thank you miss...," he trailed off watching her implying that this was the part that she introduced herself. The teen didn't recognize Yume because she had changed so much and he had been through so much, but something about her did seem familiar to the teen.

Elliot spit out his tea shocking pour Georgie to do the same with his water. "What!?!? Yume!?!?! Your Yume," Elliot asked in disbelief. He blinked several times looking her over and finding little evidence that her claim was true. Yet, something about her made him believe it was true, and he began to feel happy as well before stopping and his mood and head dropped. Georgie then looked at him worriedly as he sat there in silence for a long time.

"...What are you doing back here?" Elliot asked coolly when he finally spoke again. He raised his head slightly to look at Yume as he spoke with a cold look in his eyes. A look that one wouldn't give to a beloved friend that they missed.

Yume was startle by his cold look, she try to stay calm and resist her urges to hug him. "...I came back because I want to come back. Things... happen while I disappeared." She adjust her sitting and began explaining. "One day this monster kidnapped me and transported me to another dimensional, another world, a world I never saw... a city, "Japan". "

"I was badly injures by this monster when Niha saved me, he killed the monster. After living with him and Yuuko at their house, Yuuko lifted a curse that was laid on me." She pause and sips her teas.

"Apparently a curse was used when I was a baby. You remember that times i said I lost controls of my powers? That was the curse, it activate when my emotions go out of controls. The tattoo on my shoulder was the curse.

When Yuuko-chan lift the curse off, my appearances changes, she said that this was my true appearances, saying that the curse altered my appearance." She pulls out a letter that Elliot receive where it explains her transfer. "That letter you receive was just something to hide my disappearance, It likely Kyo due to not wanting to bring problems or whatever pranks or confusions." She finish telling her story and  sips her tea again, afraid of what Elliot might react.
