"Well, here we are!" Karin said, pointing at the place where they are currently. There are some simple training gadgets here, made from all natural thing and it does looks like it's made for a bit of training. Waiting under one of a tree too is a very complete protective gear. With Jeanne, still in holosuit beside her... well, let's not talk about that at the moment, because the woman is carrying some sort of wooden sword for practice.
Rewind about few moments ago, Karin gone to Asher's house, knocking the door after sending a message to Ms. Fluffykin. She hoped that the Digimon would somehow able to get Asher's phone and at least answer to it. Ah, really, it was such a hassle, but he need to be trained somehow! She already sent this message twice. Once to tell him to get ready, second time to remind Ms. Fluffykin to remind him. Well, all in all, now she's ready.
"...Mmm, this is the place..."
She rang the doorbell. Jeanne somehow is in the park now to ready most of the training gadgets, so she's not around... which probably gonna make the girl far more unpredictable...
Sure, Whiskers had gotten access to Asher's phone. But, it didn't mean that paws worked particularly well on a touch screen! "Ashfur," the Meicoomon meowed at her human, batting his face lightly with one paw. No, he was too busy sleeping to deal with this! With a grumble, the redhead rolled over in bed. Oh, come on! She wasn't going to get in trouble for failing to wake him up, was she? "Get up! You have impurrtant things to do!"
Fluffykins didn't want Karin to be disappointed with her, after all!
Meanwhile, Piper sat in the living room, reading a book and snacking on cookies. Or, at least, she was. Until someone began making noise at the door. Eyes flickered to the clock, trying to figure out who would be coming over. Hm. Well, there was only one way to find out.
Rising from the couch, the girl made her way to the door. Not even bothering to crack it open and making sure the visitor was safe, the door swung open fully. Taking another bite out of her cookie, the redheaded girl stared blankly at the visitor. Oh. This wasn't someone she knew. "Hello," she started, dully. Maybe, Karin was at the wrong house? Then again, bright red hair wasn't really a common thing around here, probably! "Can I help you with something?"
And, of course, Asher was still strongly avoiding waking up for training of any sort. Even with a fluffy cat jumping on his stomach! Maybe this was going to take a few minutes.
She was wondering what took Asher so long... until she have to remind herself, its Asher. This person apparently sleeps like twelve hours a day. Not sure how that could be because even she have to remind herself that none among her heavy sleeping family is that worse. She was tempted to rang the doorbell for the second time, but... that wasn't needed. God, she was thankful that she biomerged a lot, no matter how short the time was. She immediately backflipped, landing on the road with her feet, albeit nearly fell over thanks just how how sudden it was, and how abrasive the person who opens it is...
"...I swear, I thought only the brother is crazy," she muttered under her breath. "Yeah, I was wondering if this is Asher's residence? I got prior... engagement with him." she answered, tone level and flashing a friendly smile. Then again, if she was pointed out that there are lot of Asher, she'd answer that this is Japan and to begin with the name Asher, she never really heard of it before outside the country...
Oh, wow, the girl at the door was kind of graceful. Taking another bite from her cookie, Piper didn't seem too enthused by the entire thing. Sure, she could have tried saying that there were a lot of Asher's in the world. But, in Japan, especially? That seemed a little far-fetched. Of course, saying that the girl had an 'engagement' with him was potentially a red flag. She assumed it was the 'commitment in seeing' meaning, but with some people, it was really hard to tell if Karin was actually just one of those creeper fangirls.
"How did you get our address?" Was the first question she needed to ask. She swore that their recent move hadn't been listed online yet! Though, it was hard to keep tabs on that kind of thing. The internet was vast, after all! Another quick question to filter through what type of person had found her home was, "are you his girlfriend, or something?"
It was amazing how many people would try to jump on agreeing to that question, despite never actually meeting her brother.
Meanwhile, Meicoomon was still trying to wake up her human. But, with her latest jump on his chest, the teen reached out, scooping up the fuzzy feline in a hug, and rolling over. This might take even more time, if Fluffykin didn't want to actually scratch him up. "Ashfur!" Meicoomon hissed, trying not to be loud enough that Piper would hear the talking, "you have to get up!"
"Oh, someone told me," she answered. Can't tell unrelated girl that her CAT told her about it, right? She was going to ask again if it's fine for her to come in before the question is asked. Her smile dropped faster than if someone holding a ball of burning bowling ball. "...Excuse me for my rudeness, but if I date him, then I'd probably start reflecting where the fuck did my life gone wrong. I'm pretty sure having him as a boyfriend equals to like... absolute mistake in life. Who would like a boyfriend that sleeps 12 hours a day and lacks common sense to fatal degree?
Yes, she know this girl probably a family or something, especially since she verified that this is his home, but she really don't want to spend any millisecond to be mistaken as the girlfriend of that man. Really don't. She just merely crossed her arms. "I'm just here for a promise that he have to fulfill after making too many mistakes in front of me."
Someone told her? That was not a promising answer! But, wow, the next thing to come out of the stranger's mouth was definitely promising. Though, now Piper had to worry that it would result in some sort of violence upon meeting her brother. But, whatever. At least this one seemed to have common sense. "Well, it wouldn't be the first time some random girl showed up pretending to be his girlfriend," Piper stated, bluntly. Girls were weird. And that was a thought coming from a girl!
"I mean, he has a fan-club. Not everyone has your common sense," the redheaded girl smirked, taking a step back and motioning for the stranger to come in. Hey, if she was willing to point out that Asher wasn't great boyfriend material, she was welcome in the home!
Promise for making mistakes? Ha. That sounded like Asher. And, typical Asher fashion, he clearly didn't remember that he had any obligations! "Well, I think he's asleep right now," the girl pointed out. "Oh, what did you say your name was?" Don't let strangers into your house, Piper! You're supposed to be the one with common sense! At least with a name, you know who to report to the police if someone gets stabbed!
"...Why would they do that? Don't like... they would kill themselves when they know how your brother is? I mean, seriously? Anyway, I'm taken, I'm not here to date your brother or happily socializing with him so to say, although I'm in for some... mentoring so to say. I mean, his grade apparently falling, so he need to return back to the basic before moving on."
Karin entered after muttering an excuse me. It's worthy to note that she's wearing metal plated boots today... Now, the question is... will Asher got kicked by the boots or not? Nobody knows, but it's better if nobody got hurt in the process. Luckily she's not wearing it now, though.
"Name's Karin, Takamiya Karin. Mind if I wake him up? I think I know how to wake him up exactly." Of course she said this with much more friendliness than with Asher. Now, if its Asher, one that who she know is very much a pain in the ass, she would not hesitate to use... less than safe method. If he's not awake until now, then the only option is to threaten him with more training. Ufufufufu...
Okay, at least this stranger seemed to have plenty of common sense. Piper could get used to this! "Crazy attracts crazy," she theorized, adding, "and, fame attracts tolerance. People have odd priorities." After all, it wasn't like Asher hadn't had girlfriends before!
Not that Piper really knew which people he had been in relationships, and which ones he hadn't. Most of them didn't last very long, for one reason or another. Though, maybe those were just fake friendships. It was really hard to tell! Asher had a weird way with people.
Either way, the girl shrugged, closing the door, and walking around Karin to take the lead. "You're welcome to, but I can't promise he's wearing a shirt." Why did guys like to wander around shirtless? It was either distracting or annoying, or a combination of the two. Mostly annoying with her own brother, of course, with the distracting being tied in with the annoying questions that he tended to ask her about how his muscles looked. It was obnoxious, to say the least. Especially when she was studying!
Stopping in front of one of the doors, the girl made a motion to it. "Good luck," she hummed, before returning to her prior position in the living room, reading a book and getting some more cookies. After all, Asher really wasn't her responsibility!
But, he was supposed to be Meicoomon's! And she was still busy being cuddled by a sleeping teenager! How embarrassing!
"Birds of same feather flocks together? I think that logic is good enough. But your last one does makes sense. I don't even know why people likes Justin Bieber when he's like that. Hardly any people should be dealing with that sort of vitriolic idol, I say. Anyway, I might be immune because I'm both taken and not interested in looks. But most of all I think I'm not interested because he... acted like a creep when he first met me."
She just winced when Piper said that apparently he's not wearing shirt. What the hell is that for? "...Question, why the hell would he do that? Not even my brother is that much of a slob---wait, my brother is the best brother in the world, he won't look like a slob! Who am I talking about, geez... Anyway, all the more reason to wake him up then."
She walked to the room, where she found...
"...Ohey, Ms. Fluffykin, excuse me a bit, I'm going to do something a bit cruel."
She lowered herself down to Asher's ear.
"Hello Asher," she whispered. "Wake up this instant or I'll castrate you with a kick from hell."
It all made sense to Piper. She was quite pleased with everything Karin had to say on the subject, simply nodding. At least, until the part about meeting Asher. To this, her eyes seemed to glaze over, while uttering, "I'm so sorry." If anyone knew how creepy Asher could be, it was her! Though, at least Piper was aware that he really didn't mean it in the fashion it was usually taken!
"I don't know. Guys are weird," the sister was quick to quip. Maybe it was odd to people around here, but where they were from, it wasn't really uncommon for guys to wander around shirtless. Including in their front yards, where people could see them!
Once in the bedroom, Whiskers looked up to Karin, and squirmed a little to try to free herself from the sleep-hug. But, maybe that wasn't so helpful for Karin's purpose. With his hands free, the mostly-still-asleep teen reached out to try to pull Karin into Whisker's prior position! Rapidly, the Meicoomon scrambled to get out of the way in case Karin became unbalanced. Though, she highly doubted that Asher would successfully pull anyone like Karin onto the bed with him!
"Mrr?" Okay, yep, he was still asleep. But, it sounded like he might be coming around! Why was his auto-response to try to cuddle anything that got too close to his face, though?
"It's OK, I learned it first time that he doesn't meant it that way... but it's still creepy when he asked if he ever met me before when I'm only appeared in magazine a year ago as a model. It wasn't really all that great, really. I was a rather obscure actress and model, yet he still know about me. I never felt like that before... It was... panic inducing," she commented, rather unsure about it.
Of course when Karin was about to be hugged and pulled to the bed, she evaded and... DID AN ELBOW STRIKE TO HIS STOMACH! Or at least attempting to. Who know if he woke up and managed to block it for the first time? Afterall, they said the hunted's instinct is far sharper than the predator!
"NOT ONLY THAT YOU'RE A CREEP, YOU'RE ALSO ASSAULTING STRANGERS IN YOUR SLEEP!? YOU WANT TO HAVE SOME DEATH WISH, HUH!? I'LL TRAIN YOU TO DAWN IF YOU DOESN'T WAKE UP RIGHT NOW, ASHER!"
Poor sleeping Asher never stood a chance against the attack. Then again, he probably wouldn't have, even if he was awake! Given, he was most certainly awake now, as the redhead jolted upward, wrapping arms around his stomach, and coughing heavily. "Oh my God!" He hissed, curling forward into a ball, while trying to register the pain. What the heck had just happened?!
Last he knew, he had soft and fuzzy kitty in his arms, and then just boom!
"What're we-" the teen wheezed, trying to catch his breath still, "what're we yelling about?!" Yellow eyes shot to look at the source. Oh, of course. It was Karin. "It's-" Keep breathing! Just keep working on it! Wow, that didn't feel good! He might have to throw up. "It's too early for violence! Don't you know that?"
And, just from hearing some of the yelling from the other room, Piper further established that she was quite fond of Karin.
"Up and shine!" Karin said with very very very sweet tone, yet laced with pure sarcasm. 1000% Sarcasm, Karin brand. "You call 9 AM early? Excuse me, should have walked in three hours ago and just kicked your bed and flips you to the ground. Might be appreciated more, huh? I asked Ms. Fluffykin to wake you up and you, lazy bum, still asleep! I even sent message yesterday, before you went to sleep!"
Of course Karin wasn't amused the slightest. "I'll give you thirty minute," she declared. "Change your clothes and bring the necessities. I'll be waiting in the living room, and don't you dare sleep again. I'll only tolerate ten minutes extra of lateness. Do. not. be. late."
She closed the door and called Ms. Fluffykin so she could calm herself down. Of course there's some more... nice foods that she brings with her. God know how bad she's eating here. Cat foods, everyday? Best not. That's why she brought nice, cooked tuna! With this, the Meicoomon won't feel that bored!
...Speaking of which, the difference in treatment between human vs cat would certainly make people wonder if Karin is that much of a cruel cat maniac.
And shine?! More like and pain! This girl was going to cause internal bleeding someday! "No! None of that is appreciated!" Just like his stomach being slammed into wasn't appreciated! Jeez! Be gentle! Asher was fragile! Especially when he was sleeping! Still coddling his stomach, the young man simply nodded a few times at everything that Karin had to say. "Wait! What're necessities?"
Speaking of necessities? Cooked tuna was definitely on that list, as far as Meicoomon was concerned. Purring, the feline happily accepted. Of course, now that she wasn't within Asher's bedroom, she had to be more careful about how she handled herself. After all, Piper was still sitting in the living room, reading.
Not that she was really looking at the cat or the other girl. "Sounds like you get along really well with my brother," she chimed, sarcastically, with her nose still within the book. It wasn't like these walls were thick enough to contain yelling to one room!
"Of course you don't, but didn't I gave you fair warning two days ago? Had you woke up at my threat, I wouldn't end up doing it. Be thankful that it's not that something else that I bust. Plus, I was being gentle, you know? If I was considerably pissed, I'd stomp on your stomach with my boots. Or do you want some slaps with my feet?" she of course saying all of this with a really sweet sarcasm.
"What you think are important to bring in training. There won't be any vending machine so be quick at it."
Looks like Ms. Fluffykin is having her day of life, though! Karin just stroke her as she gave her more and more, knowing that probably she would ate nothing but just cat foods---or at least in front of the family. She made a cooing nose to the Meicoomon, but upon Piper's question, she looked up and smiled.
"Oh yes, we got along superbly. But not superbly enough to make his one and true love 'sleep' hate me. I hate her though."
