Shinigami Bits Valentines Special!
It's almost Valentines Day and love in the air at the North Soul Tower! But, there seems to be some conflict...
Lewis: Is there a problem?
Tyrin: Yeah, it's almost Valentines Day.
Lewis: Why is that a problem?
Tyrin: The problem is that I don't know what to give Ai. I want to give her something special, but not too special. You know, a gift you would give as a friend.
Lewis: I thought you loved her.
Tyrin: I do, but I don't think now is the right time.
Lewis: Ah, the complications of love. That is a troublesome subject.
Tyrin: Do you have any advice?
Lewis: A card is good.
Tyrin: That's old school! No one does that anymore unless you're a classmate!
Lewis: Jewelry is always nice, I think. Though, I don't think Ai is someone who likes to accessorize.
Tyrin: Hmm... maybe an earring. That's not very showy. Some are cheap.
Lewis: A cheap one shows you probably found it on the ground. An expensive one shows that you care.
Tyrin: Then what's mid range?
Lewis: You're going to have to ask a female on that subject.
At the Stop & Shop...
Olivia: Oh, hey, Tyrin. What's up? *sitting down eating candy sticks*
Tyrin: Hey, Olivia. Can I ask you a question?
Olivia: Sure, have a sit.
Tyrin: *sits down next to her and takes a candy stick* Do you a mid price for earrings?
Olivia: Mid price?
Tyrin: Yeah you know. Not too cheap and not too expensive.
Olivia: Who are you buying this for?
Tyrin: Ai. I'm thinking about giving her a pair of earrings as a Valentine's gift.
Olivia: That's nice. Oh, here's my gift to you. *hands over a card*
Tyrin: A Valentine card?
Olivia: Yeah, I'm giving them out to everyone.
Tyrin: Even Leon?
Olivia: *blushes* I... I'm still thinking about it...
Tyrin: *laughs and eats candy stick* By the way, what are your views on love?
Tyrin: I'm curious what other people think.
Olivia: Well, not sure what to say other than an emotion you feel towards someone.
Tyrin: Do you believe I'm on track with this whole love thing?
Olivia: I think you're well-adjusted, but you may need to work on your relationship skills. Staying friends too long might be a bad thing. Ever heard of the term "friend zone"?
Tyrin: Yeah... I really hope to avoid that at all costs. Thanks for the talk, Olivia. *leaves and waves*
Olivia: Yeah, good luck, Mr. Cupid. *waves*
At the Waiting Room...
Tyrin: (Shoot! I forgot to ask her about that mid price! Oh, well... I guess I can ask someone else. At least I got some candy sticks...)
Reida: Saki, did you finish the mission I assigned you?
Tyrin: Huh? Oh, yes I did. I almost forgot to report it in.
Reida: That's not good you know. I know your brain is on this holiday and everything, but don't you forget that you still have a job to do.
Tyrin: Yes, ma'am. Sorry.
Reida: Whatever, just don't mess up. *drinks coffee*
Tyrin: (Hmm... I wonder if it's alright to ask her?) Hey, Reida. What are your views on love?
Reida: *nearly chokes on coffee* W... What?!
Tyrin: W... Was it really such a weird question to ask?! *sweatdrop*
Reida: N... No... I just wasn't expecting you to ask me such a question. Why are you asking me of all people?
Tyrin: Just curious.
Reida: Well, I'm not really interested in the subject. But, I guess it's something... good...
Reida: Look, that's all I know and what to know. Sorry if I can't give a better answer.
Tyrin: Have you ever fallen in love before?
Reida: Enough of the stupid questions.
Tyrin: Fine, fine. See you. *leaves*
Reida: (Hmph. Little brat. How dare he insist I never... forget it. It's best to think about it.)
At the Market, in a jewelry store
Tyrin: (Damn, I still don't know what to buy. Lots of good designs and all, but some of these look way too expensive. Is there no way for me to find something affordable?)
Ruby: T... Tyrin?
Tyrin: Ruby? What are you doing here?
Ruby: If you don't tell anyone... I'm kinda shopping...
Tyrin: Oh? You like jewelry?
Ruby: What? Is it wrong for a girl to like jewelry?
Tyrin: No, I just didn't think you were the type.
Ruby: There's a lot you don't know me. Anyway, why are you here?
Tyrin: Oh, just buying something for a certain someone.
Ruby: Lady Johanna only accepts the finest design.
Tyrin: I'm not talking about Johanna!
Ruby: Don't know why not. You should do so.
Tyrin: I'm already trying to consider something for Ai alone.
Ruby: What? Are you not man enough to do something for both of them? *glares*
Tyrin: Fine, I'll get something for her too. (Damn, there's go my paycheck of the week.) *notices a pair of dove shaped earrings* Hey, what about this?
Tyrin: Yeah. Well designed, fared price, plus I give it to both of them as a symbol to their friendship. A two for one sale.
Ruby: *sighs* Whatever, what works for you I guess. It'll be funny to see Milady's reaction.
Tyrin: Well, I'm sure she'll like them. *takes the earrings and proceeds to counter* Excuse me, miss. I would like to buy this.
Cashier: Buying this as a Valentine's gift?
Tyrin: Yes, ma'am. Pretty good idea, right?
Cashier: My what a cute couple you two are. I haven't seen such chemistry between two people in a long time.
Tyrin: Um... are you talking about... us? *points to himself and Ruby*
Ruby: W... What? *blushes*
Cashier: Since this is a special holiday, I'll give you a discount for two lovebirds.
Ruby: H... Hold on! We're not a...
Tyrin: Oh, honey! Such modesty is not needed. She's so shy. *smiles*
Ruby: (What the hell are you planning, you idiot?!)
Cashier: Here you go. Have a wonderful day. *hands over earrings*
Tyrin: Come on, love. Let us journey back to the Tower. *pushes an angered Ruby out of the store*
Ruby: Sure thing, honey. But, let's visit that famous that you promised first. *fake smiles*
Tyrin: While of course! Nothing is too expensive for the love of my life. *looks away*
A few minutes later outside of the store...
Ruby: How dare you use me, you impetuous idiot!
Tyrin: I... I said I was sorry...
Ruby: I swear I haven't been more embarrassed in all my life.
Tyrin: Well, it was just a simple misunderstanding. Not like we have to pretend to be a couple or anything.
Ruby: Cheap, impetuous idiot. I don't feel like talking to you anymore. And you're still taking me somewhere for using me.
Tyrin: Alright, fine.
Ruby: W... What? Are you being serious right now?
Tyrin: Yeah, it's the least I can do.
Ruby: Heh, I was only joking. You don't really have to do it.
Tyrin: What a relief. I seriously thought I was going to have to do it. *chuckles*
Ruby: Cheap, impetuous idiot.
Tyrin: (I can't tell what she wants from me. Her "tsundereness" is incredible.) Alright, I'll give this to them. What are you going to do?
Ruby: It's none of your concern.
Tyrin: See you. *leaves*
Ruby: (What a complete dumbass. Me pretending to be his girlfriend? I rather jump off a cliff. Though... the idea may not be so bad... Idiot, don't fall for such an idiot! Dammit, now I'm calling myself an idiot! I really don't like him...)
