(Open) Niandra LaDes (aka Pop is Dead)

Post by Riye Asano on Sun Sep 01, 2013 12:18 am

I spent the whole day putting up flyers for potential band members since those two that responded on my Deadbook status haven't responded necessarily and just in case I don't like them, I can automatically have replacements. People are both untruthful and ultimately expendable. Over time, I've acquired a strong DIY ethic.

I need a guitar...but at the same time, I feel my shimasen with a few modifications could do the job. For one, I don't really have the finances for a guitar unless it's an extremely, extremely cheap one. Maybe I'll go dumpster diving...

I pass a boutique and hear the latest (I assume) pop single by the generic pop group of generic high pitched girls. My eyes narrow until they're slits. I swallow my tongue and just keep on walking in search for the music shop.

Having arrived at the school less than a month before summer break, chiharu consequently had no plans of what to do during the summer. So, she ended up doing the kinda of things she did before coming here. This annoyed her greatly. To break out of her old ruts, she took any opportunity to do something different. Tracking down the mysterious girl she met at the shanghai the other day, well that just about fits the order.

After the deadbook post, all she needed to do was follow the posters. Even though it took a while, the girl on a mission eventually caught up with the one wandering about stopping every once in a while to put up a poster.

Turning a corner and there she was. Chiharu walks up from behind her, and simply says, "I never caught your name."

I tense up at the sudden intrusion of your voice into my thoughts and nearly drop all of my posters out of fright. picking up the one or two that I did drop, I stand up, turn around and face you.

"...Riye. My name is Asano Riye..."

I avoid your eyes and avert mine them to the alley next to the telephone pole I was tagging.

".... you're the girl from the cafe."

This is a statement of the obvious but its all I can say at the moment.

Chiharu lets out a smirk as she says, "Indeed I am. It's chiharu, by the way."
She then takes an obvious glance at the papers in Riye's hands.
"Would you like a hand with those?"

I take a good look at the girl. She can't be older than I am but I come across one observation. A simple observation. This girl is weird. I don't know why.

"Chiharu..."

I looked at the last few flyers in my hands.

"Uh...sure."

I hand you some flyers and start slowly walking.

While walking along, chiharu looks the flyer's over, not seeming to pay much attention to where she's going.

I place a flyer in a decadent section of an alleyway.

"No... Not necessarily."

<The way she was talking about the school the other day, I doubt she has a soft spot for authority>
"Yeah, too bad you're doing this now. I play piano, and the only one around is inside the school. While I sneak in every once in a while, chances of getting caught are much higher with as much sound as you're planning."

I inspect a dumpster in the alleyway and I hop inside.

"I'll find something."

Thoroughly confused, chiharu asks the most obvious question, "What!? Eh, are you looking for, exactly?"

A broken toy piano is tossed out of the dumpster that babies use, multicolored and all.

Chiharu takes off her scarf and grabs a water bottle from her bag. After getting a section of her scarf damp, she wraps it around her nose and mouth to then climb the side of the dumpster to be able to peak over the edge.
Her voice gives off a certain amount of excitement mixed with an ounce of disbelief, however muffled it may be.
"You know how to make a piano?"

"No. I can build something. Better."

I hop out of the dumpster and pat myself off.

"Hardware store might have better materials..."

I turn and start walking once more.

"Most likely..."

Upon exiting the alleyway, chiharu takes the scarf off her mouth and squints slightly as she begins walking a step or two farther from riye than before.

"Better than a dumpster atleast."

"Who said we're buying anything? I'm dumpster diving for materials. I need wine glasses....unconventional. Or bamboo... Something..."

I hop into another dumpster.

*sigh*
<Is this really neccesary?>
Chiharu doesn't compensate the tone of her voice for the fact that the person she is talking to is currently inside a dumpster.
"Y'know, I do have some money, the least I could do is help you acquire some of the materials for, whatever it is you are planning on building, I assume, for me."

I toss out a medium to long hollowed bamboo stick, broken a bit and somewhat old. A manual hand drill. A rusty screwdriver.

"I was just giving you some options, that's all."
Chiharu takes a few steps back, away from any possible flying materials.
"And just to let you know, I prefer to play my own music, rather than depend on others."

"Then we have the same sensibilities except the ways we go about it is different."

I climb out with some other materials and place them in the gym bag I've been carrying.

I look up at you with extinguished eyes with a rare flicker in them.

"That's good. Real good. And don't let anyone tell you otherwise."

I pat you on the shoulder with my pinky and walk up the alleyway into the hardware store.

"Chiharu, I need some medium length screws, a sandpaper square, wine bottle corks and a......yeah, that's about all. I'll acquire some wine glasses later."

Having never been in this store, or any like it, chiharu simply grabs a basket near the door and begins wandering through the aisles, grabbing the requested products as she spots them on her way.
"So, wanna fill me in on what your plan is?"

"I'm making you a rainstick out of these materials. The wine glasses I need are crystal thin rimmed glasses to make a glass harp."

I walk up to the check out and wait for you to grab all the items to pay for them.

Chiharu puts the basket on to the counter and while the cashier is checking everything out, she tentatively addresses Riye.
"Thanks, I appreciate the offer, but.. I think this would be better for someone else."

I simply nod and take out my wallet to pay for the materials. They were relatively cheap but if Chiharu didn't want it, I could sell the made project to a collector or the antique shop.

As she grabs the bag and carries it for riye, chiharu also feels somewhat obligated to give her an explanation.
"I would still like to see you make it, it's just. Well, I have issues with real rain, and I doubt something that immitates the sound would be much better."

"Ah. I see."

The glass harp... Nah, let's not push it.

We walk out of the hardware store and I gently take the bag from her hands.

"Thank you, Chiharu. I'll take it from here."
