It was a saturday afternoon, and given how awesome he'd done on his tests at school that week, Yoshi had decided to treat himself to another bag of sugar cookies. What? He totally deserved them! Sure, he wasn't exactly passing with flying colours, but he'd made a real improvement! It helped a great deal that DemiAngemon was pretty great at encouraging him to study, going so far as bringing him snacks and juice when he was doing so. What a great guy!
DemiAngewomon usually just hogged the PlayStation.
And so he half-skips into the bakery, the two Kyupimon in his backpack as he smiles and waves at the owner. His eyes fall on today's selection. Ooh! Fresh bread! Fresh cookies! Pastries! Oh boy, he was gonna burn through his allowance so fast.
Wait, is that...look! Other people! Maybe? "Hello!"
"Mmmm!" a soft hum of delight escaped his lips. How come donuts can be this good!? Oh dear, he never thought that Tokyo donuts and various other fried bread can be this delicious! Boy, he's ot regretting it the slightest to eat less for these treats! Generally, in Hokkaido, donuts just come with less varieties, but in here, it's just full of different thing! He's not really fond of sweet things. It's good and all, but if he ate too much, his brother commented that "even monkey have a better manner than you did", so he stopped. Not that it's a bad treats now and then, but honestly he preferred salty.
"Now on ta' da next--!" it's a fried bread with meat filling. He was about to pour a ketchup when someone seem to greeted him... him?
He turned around to the source... a boy... shorter than he is! (he made a guts pose inside his mind for this)... eh, but he looks younger too while at it. Huh...? Are? Really, him? As if asking in confirmation if the blond haired boy called him, he pointed at himself with questioning look
...Tokyo people must be lot friendlier than he thought if twice he already got called. What's wrong anyway? He doesn't think that this time he nearly entered a restricted bookstore

"Yeah! You! Hi!" The blonde boy's smile is far sweeter than any of the pastries or confectionaries in the bakery. That smile must get him anything he wants, and out of all kinds of trouble! Maybe he has an ulterior move! Like mugging this fried bread-eating child. Or murdering him!
But no. He's just overly friendly and likes to meet new people. Someone of a similar age is nearby, so of course he's drawn to them, clutching his bag of still-warm cookies. "There aren't normally many people my age in here! Did you just come in for bread?" Stop speaking in such an enthusiastic tone, you'll give everyone a headache.
Oh! But this bread-wielding boy doesn't sound local! A different accent maybe? Or maybe just the way he speaks. Ooh. Non-local people are Yoshi's favorite! "Oh! I'm being super rude. Sorry! Hi!" Again. "I'm Kiyoshi Inoue, it's nice to meet you!" His parents never taught him that he shouldn't talk to strangers, apparently.
...Well,, what can a skinny kid do anyway? There's not much meat under that skin he reckon, and plus he doesn't seems like he got any ulterior motives. When it comes to strangers, yes, he's getting paranoid, but more because he's from the countryside and doesn't get most of thing that is going on around here. However at the same time, his mind generally goes to "Everyone is innocent" when they smiles in friendly way at him.
"Uh... well, ya... I do. I came here for da... uh... breads. Heard from me bro dat they're delicious... very delicious? ... Or actually really really really delicious..."
...Yes, Tetsu, you never got more than five thousand yens, and so when you got FIFTY for once, added with bout five thousand timed by 52, timed by 7 and minus some expenditure, you're still damn rich for a kid, so you decided to treat yourself before your mind gone blank from the impossible number and you're not aware that you have at least a million yen in your bank account... basically, grandpa said to 'try out new things', right!?
"Shishidou Tetsu, ya sounds like a bit younger dan me?"
...Well, that much is obvious, he hope? Then again, Tetsu never really talked to much kid of his age around here. Kids in Hokkaido, he literally knows all of them in that small village, so everyone's like family... but unfortunately, when it comes to new kid, he forgot to turn off his "I meant to be friendly, but I accidentally said stupid thing" mode.
Yoshi considers the bread. Meat-bread. That's super weird. He tilts his head and then blinks, "I've never tried anything like that. Um. They do super nice fresh bread here, though," he holds up his little paper bag, "and super awesome cookies,"
The boy pauses for a moment and then extands his hand, opening the bag of still-warm cookies as he does so. And then he does the unthinkable, at least for any child. He offers someone else one of his cookies! "Would you like to try one?" HE MUST BE THE NICEST KID EVER. HOLY--!
"Oh! But it's nice to meet you, Tetsu! Sorry, I should've said that first! I'm not normally so rude..."
"Oh, ya're younger innit!" Tetsu said, nodding. "Well, not dat matter 'nyway... Kiyoshi, right? Nice to metcha, sorry I forgot to say that meself..." he scratched his head. Despite the guy being younger, that doesn't mean he's going to act so rudely to him. Plus to begin with, Tetsu's rudeness is probably normal for him because he's just too overfamiliar with lot of people. "Oh, take a seat... I guess?" Not sure if that's right either, but he still offered anyway. Eh? The boy offered him cookie?
"Well, 'den, itadakimasu~"
Tetsu took one of the cookie, but while munching, he gave the younger boy a fried bread, one that seem to be... unique in some way. Let's say there are sprinkles of powdered nori on the surface and there are some filling that looks like cheese. A recipe for disaster? Dunno, but the boy finally finished the cookie to talk.
"Ya seem to be a great guy, but I don't want to take without giving somethin' back! Take somethin' from here," he pointed at the bag of breads that he just recently bought. "I bought too many so if ya don't like dis one, get another one from inside! Got too much money from grandpops, he's mighty rich that it's scary... I'm just a regula' farmboy, yanno...?"
...Well, the cookie tasted good, but... as said before, he's not that fond of sweet things.

Yoshi drops into a seat opposite Tetsu and offers him a smile. He shakes his head and takes a bite out of the oddly flavoured bread. He looks thoughtful for a moment, before coughing. "Boy, that sure is...salty. Or...um. Unusual, anyway!"
He tilts his head, "Oh. You're from a farm or something? I didn't think we had any farms around here," In the metropolitan area of Shibuya? Probably not. "Are you from far away, Tetsu?" Oh god. He's interested in getting to know you. Quick, run away, Tetsu, before he starts asking invasive questions like whether you're having a nice day!
Inexplicably, he takes another bite of the oddly-flavoured bread. Maybe it's an acquired taste. Or the antidote for a deadly, deadly poison he accidentally ingested earlier.
"Really that unusual?" he asked, then he tried one himself. "...Well, yep, this is unusual... but it's still delicious anyway." Acquired taste is quite nice way to put it. This probably gonna end in top 10 weirdest doughnut idea, but as always, Tetsu is firm believer of no wasting food. He's going to eat whether he likes it or not, unless it's not even food. Kiyoshi's question of course was harmless... well, he doesn't even mind that sort of question at the slightest.
"Yep, ya heard me. From da farm in Hokkaido! Well, me and me folk need ta' move 'ere 'cuz of typhoon tho'. Killed lot o' my animal friends it did! Farm got destroyed, house broken, greenhouse glass all brokne''. Gotta need more dan' few bucks fo' dat, ya catch? Grandpops told me Pa and Ma to stay 'ere until it got fixed..."
"Oh! I'm super-sorry to hear that! That's really sad!" Yoshi seems to be genuinely upset by the news. Jeez. What's an empathetic kid. Chomp! He takes another bite. "I don't think I've even seen a farm before! Um. Not a real one anyway. I've seen pictures and stuff, at school," Truly a city-kid if there ever was one.
"Well. I hope you'll like staying around here while your farm's fixed up! There's lots of cool stuff to do! Malls, arcades, fast food on every corner! It's a lot of fun!" Yoshi enthuses. He's pretty sure they don't have arcades out on farms. Who would even play? The sheep? Ridiculous.
He hadn't even heard of a typhoon hitting Hokkaido. ...Then again, he'd barely heard anything of Hokkaido period. It wasn't like he watched the news. And he sucked at Geography.
"Oh! I know! I could show you around a little if you like!"
"Meh, city kids like yerself should go ta farm sometimes. Ya should look at all dat place dat supply yer rice, yer bread, yer veggie, yer milk and whatever. Without farm folks can't eat. That's why ya should appreciate 'em." Wow, Tetsu, way to toot your own horn! However, the boy said it appreciatively. "Eh, but I'm na jus' sayin' that jus' farma' deserves yer thanks, kay? Workers too, and everyone! Make sure ya thanks 'em properly for all da effort they put on their jobs!"
He listened to Kiyoshi excitedly listed what's available. There's an arcade too back home you know... but the amount of game probably so small that he's not all that interested. Or maybe his love for his farm is just that huge so much that he doesn't even want to play games.
"..Mmmm, ya, sure."
He really don't want to disappoint this new friend of his tho. So he consented, and this time with a smile.
"Well, my mom and dad are always busy, and me an' Shichy are always at school, so we never have time to go places like that. But I'm definitely super-grateful for all the work other people put in so we can eat!" Oh my god, this kid. So earnest. Kill me now. "I'd love to hear more about what it's like to live on a farm, though!"
He collects his food and stands up, apparently ready to wander around the city with his newly-abducted friend.
"Shichy?" he repeated, not sure who's that. Still, he nodded in understanding that they're busy. "...Well, yanno, if ma farm already fixed, ya should come 'n visit. Even if the cities got a lotta thingy to do, farms also na' borin' if ya used ta it."
Way around here, huh... That reminds him...
"...Say, I was wonderin'... I met 'dis nice oneechan who tol' me to 'na go ta scramble crossin'. I dunno why, but she said there is a 'curse' or somethin'... Na sure wha' she meant 'bout dat, but have 'ya heard 'o it? Otha' dan that... eeehh... um... I guess I haven't gone 'nywhere... So 'ny help will be appreciated!"
