Look, Sooner or Later You'd See Someone You Know (Alicia) Dec 4, 2016 1:17:31 GMT

For a while now, Isaac had the same sort of daily routine. Wake up, go to school, get through the day, and then head to the Digital World with his little bro. It was a nice, stable schedule. Okay, so not really stable. There was no possible way the Digital World could ever have a stable day passing. But it was a routine Isaac was familiar with, and one that it took a lot for him to want to change.
That was why it still felt weird to Isaac when, rather than heading to the Digital World with Elliot after school, he dropped him off at home. As much as he trusted his little brother, he didn't want him walking all the way back home on his own. With his bad leg and scrawny size, if someone wanted to hurt him it would've been all too easy. Unfortunately, this had the side effect of forcing Isaac to endure a thousand questions about his recent whereabouts.
"Come on! You gotta tell me where you're going all this time," Elliot protested, standing on the curb of the street and refusing to move any further. "I know its not the drama club, because then you'd be bragging way more about it. Instead, you're just kinda sleepy these days."
"I'm telling you, bro. It's a secret," Isaac said. "Maybe I'll tell you after Christmas. But first I've got a lot of important stuff to do, okay?" Elliot didn't look entirely covninced. "Look, I promise. I'm not doing anything weird or dangerous. I've just been hard at work on secret projects. You wouldn't want me ruining your surprises, would you?"
"Yeah, I guess you're right," Elliot said. "So does this mean I'm getting really kickass Christmas presents this year?"
Isaac gave his brother a gentle pat on the shoulder. "Heh. We'll see about that, won't we?" he asked, waving farewell as he started making his way from Greater Shibuya to North Shibuya. From there he looked back and forth, as if making sure he wasn't tailed, before slipping into the maid and butler cafe he had recently started work at.
A quick change and a shot of coffee, and he was ready to get this evening shift started. But who would his first customer end up being?
