Summary: Since it's Lelouch's birthday and Yoite's got missed, Raikou organizes a joint party! (aka, Raikou announces and Gau does the work)

[The teenager keeps a running monologue going as he stacks up food in his partner's arms, green eyes flashing brightly with outrage, small slender sword-calloused hands carefully maneuvering covered dishes and packages.

Once Raikou is properly burdened, Gau gathers up the last armload for himself, frowns at the way the corner of a box wrinkles his yukata, and then starts taking confident steps out of the cave, his mouth still running all the way.

The smile on his face doesn't quite match up with his words.]

How could you dump all this on me without much time to prepare? I'm so glad we had vanilla, or I couldn't have made Yoite-chan's favorite... and I don't even know what kinds of things Lelouch-san likes, and I had just enough honey to make the tarts you like, and...

[Then he stops, dead in his tracks, and turns to Raikou with a look of horror on his face.]


[A small smile threatens to curve Raikou's lips at his partner's little rant, more amused than anything as he follows the teen down to the beach, his own cream-and-lavender yukata neat despite the way Gau had stacked his arms up for their fourth trip down to the beach.]

It'll be fine, Gau. Honestly, I don't know how many people will show, but I did say food contributions would be helpful, didn't I?

[He smiles a bit more and laughs softly.]

I'm sure someone will be considerate enough to bring something...and I did let you know as soon as I could, but it was a rather spur of the moment invitation.

[Surely, someone will. And they've managed to procure plenty of drinks and a few tables borrowed from Raikou's employer and friends in the village, and enough dishes and cups and... surely, it's all going to be just fine, but Gau just has problems with last minute things sometimes.

He manages to get himself moving again, laughing a little at himself as well, and it's not a long walk to the beach, not long at all before he's unloading his arms and smoothing a hand down the front of his (borrowed) pretty green yukata.

He surveys the spread, grins a little, and draws in a deep breath.]

What do you think, Raikou? We did good?

[Raikou took a moment to survey the spread of tables and nods to himself as Gau unloads his arms, neatly organizing the last bit of food and dishes - along with the presents for them both that Raikou had tracked down as Gau worked on the food.]

Yes Gau... I think you quite outdid yourself.

[OOC note: Feel free to start threads and comment-spam away!]

[Really, Gau is in his element when he has people to wait on. At the moment, there's really no one to wait on; when he walks away from the party, everyone is properly milling around being social and enjoying themselves.

It seems that between his efforts and the things others have brought, there is enough food for everyone.

So without anything to stress over, he finds himself wandering away from the crowd at large and settling himself down on a rock a little ways down the beach, with a drink and a plate of cake he managed to save for himself despite Yoite.]

[There is a moment in which Rin isn't talking to anyone. She takes the chance to walk around and enjoy the view.

Then she spots Gau. All by his lonesome. Just the sight makes conflicting feelings arise within her. She remembers what she's been thinking earlier today, and on and off, privately, ever since Marco told her about it: Gau killed him.

Strictly speaking, this is not her business. It's Marco's. But her curiosity won't stop nagging: why did he do it, can I still trust him. Even though she knows it's not very likely he did it on purpose, and her intuition is certainly still deeming him trustworthy.

Before she knows it, she's walking toward him. Just a talk, she thinks. They don't even need to talk about that, no, they don't. But maybe something will be clearer if she does have a private chat with him.

She approaches him carefully, gives a tiny wave.]

Ah... hello...
Jan. 6th, 2011 07:41 pm (UTC)
[He's almost startled, actually, which makes him blush a little, one hand going to the hilt of his katana automatically.

Of course, he immediately lets it fall away again, grins at her. Because it's Rin, and she's always welcome, isn't she?]

Oh, Rin-san!

[He laughs lightly, sets his cup down and gestures to the rock beside him.]

Would you like to have a seat? Or did you need me to get something for you...?

[After all, somehow these people became his guests, despite the fact that it was Raikou's idea to have a party, and it's for Lelouch's and Yoite's birthdays...]
Jan. 6th, 2011 07:46 pm (UTC)
[Rin immediately feels guilty for her previous thoughts; Gau is sweet and welcoming as ever, so she thinks she's doing him an injustice. She does note that he was ready to grab his sword at first. Maybe that's the key: paranoia. Not much of a wonder, really.]

I'd like to sit with you, if I may.

[So she says, giving him a tentative smile and sitting down to where he gestured.]
Jan. 6th, 2011 08:02 pm (UTC)
[Gau grins and shifts a little closer, without really thinking about it, his knees coming up underneath him on the rock.]

Of course you may! I haven't spoken to you enough lately, it seems like! It's been that way with a lot of people, really... I've been rather busy with my own things, here.

[He pauses.]

And then there was all that trouble, so recently.
Jan. 7th, 2011 06:24 pm (UTC)
Ah, yeah... that.

[She looks at her toes, for a moment, even if she's just able to barely see them, as her feet are as much tucked under her legs as they can be before meeting rock. Her eyes follow her own footsteps in the sand and then flit over to where the sea rolls gently onto the beach.]

Did you get through that all right, yes?
Jan. 7th, 2011 07:43 pm (UTC)
It was...

[The first memory that comes to mind, oddly, isn't the fighting. It's not seeing people die all around him, isn't the strange creatures the Exorcists had faced off with or the undead ones he himself slaughtered.


It's the sensation of slamming into a wall as he passes right through the space Yoite had just disappeared from. It's that sense of loss, and Raikou telling him to have faith, and himself falling apart with grief.]

I thought I'd lost someone I loved forever.

[But he'd gotten Raikou back then too, or at least... Raikou had gotten himself back. And Yoite was better now, so much better.]

I just needed to have a little more faith, though.
Jan. 7th, 2011 08:13 pm (UTC)
[Her throat feels dry, suddenly. She can hear and see the hurt he's remembering, and it grieves her.]

So --

[Falters, takes in a breath, starts again.]

So everything turned out all right in the end?
Jan. 11th, 2011 12:48 am (UTC)
I suppose you could say that. Yoite is better now, and we're all here, so... I guess you could call that turning out all right.

[His eyes turn back toward the others on the beach, and there's a smile on his lips, but it's almost wistful.

Things are all right. There are so many things that will never be the same, but they're all right now. Really.]

And you? Are you... all right?
Jan. 11th, 2011 08:55 pm (UTC)
[And she notices that too, that smile. She struggles with herself: to ask or not to ask? It's a tough question. Does she even still need to ask?

Part of her does.]

I'm... yes. I'm doing fine.
Jan. 12th, 2011 09:20 pm (UTC)
I'm glad to hear that!

[He's not sure if it's true, really. He's used to ferreting out the truth, to digging through layers of lies through research to find what's really going on, but...

In this case, it's not as if he has all his usual methods. And more than that...

She's a friend.]


[Another glance up the beach.]

You came with Marco, didn't you? I'm sorry I didn't greet you right away, I was busy.
Jan. 12th, 2011 09:35 pm (UTC)
[Awkward awkward awkward.

Rin really feels the urge to fidget now, and suppresses it with some effort. Part of her wants to just burst out with her questions, but her logical side thinks it better to see where this will go.

So Gau is ready to speak about Marco of his own, but it may be just for the sake of small talk.

And then she stops herself, because Gau is supposed to be a friend. It's becoming an exercise in "how subtly can I chew my lip anyway".

Still, she smiles at him. With a bit of unease, but not without honesty.]

Mh, I did. And that's okay -- there are quite some guests. I think you're managing pretty well.
Jan. 13th, 2011 10:45 pm (UTC)
[There's something wrong here, Gau is starting to think, but he's not quite sure. He tilts his head, bites his lip a little, trying to sort out what's going on.

It's easy enough conversation, isn't it?]

Thanks. Actually I was rather nervous; Raikou invited everyone before he even told me about it! But I suppose it's good in a way... I mean, I feel best when I can do useful things like this.
Jan. 15th, 2011 12:26 pm (UTC)
[That makes her just a slight bit less nervous, because what he says is very much true for her, also.]

... I know what you mean. I feel the same.
Jan. 16th, 2011 03:27 am (UTC)
[Gau grins brightly.]

I'm glad you can find things that you enjoy too, Rin-san.

[He shifts a little closer, then leans back on his elbows, careful not to knock off the plate and cup on the other side of him.]

You should come visit here more often. It's pretty here in Mizusato, don't you think?
