"YYYAAAAAAAAHOOOOOOOOOOO" Luke screeched as he climbed the tree higher and higher, he had chosen an area that was pretty cut off from the rest of the park, well it was a bit more private. on this tree he practiced many balancing techniques and going from tree branch to tree branch.
In order to be able to keep up with his fighting style he needed to stay strong in both his upper and lower body, three climbing was the perfect exercise to keep both in shape. He looked more like a monkey then human to those who managed to catch a slight glimpse of the young teen in the tree.
Today was his day off from work, and he had just gotten out of school, so now he was here relaxing and excising before going home to do his Home Work.

Diego wasn't home anymore. That meant he didn't have any friends, didn't know the local language well, and didn't have anywhere he liked to go in particular with any frequency. There was, however, one fun activity that managed to translate reasonably through the move: jiu jitsu. Specifically the Brazilian tradition, not the Japanese version. Nonetheless, there was a Brazilian style studio right here in Tokyo, so despite the fact that Diego didn't know Japanese too well, he knew as much Portuguese as he needed to survive in that place.
It was a stretch to say the activity was calming given his circumstances, but it was one of few places she agreed to leave him alone. These days, that alone was as therapeutic as wrestling grown men to the ground, which was quite saying something for little 147-centimeter Diego.
Problem was class didn't happen every day. But Diego could still go to the park and practice some forms, work his body a little. If he got bored, well, recreational tree climbing was also a favorite pastime of the boy. In either case, there was one thing he had to do first. It started with sitting down on the ground, extending both his legs, and leaning forward far as he could. He was limber enough to touch his own toes and even grab onto them in order to pull himself forward just a bit further. Maybe he was young, but he'd suffered enough pulled muscles in the sport to avoid pain and seek pleasure.
Like someone else, he chose a quiet spot to do his thing, as the sight of him might have been a little odd to onlookers. Perhaps it wasn't that quiet, though. Some older boy was shouting from up in a tree. Diego's attention was drawn, causing him to look off in its direction for the source.
At this point Luke was hanging upside down from the highest branch, not at all bothered with how high he was.....or the blood rushing to his head.
"Shishishishi, cool!, everything looks so weird from this angle!"
The teen continued to laugh as he rocked back and forth on his branch. Finally the blood going to his head was really starting to bother him, so like any sane Insane teen he looked down and noticed a sturdy branch under the one he was currently on. The teens grin widened and he let himself go, tucking in his legs as he fell he managed to get them under him and land on a low crouch, like a Monkey and stayed on the branch even when it swayed a little.
"YOSH!, I didnt fall!" he exclaimed with a grin as he looked down to see how far the ground was from where he was perched. Thats when he noticed the Diego, Luke blinked and waved at him "YOOOOOOO"

Limber one, isn't he? Diego had to admit he was kind of impressed with that guy's climbing ability. He wasn't exactly a Santos, but they were in the same league, at least. Less impressive was the stranger's recklessness in throwing himself off a perfectly good branch head-first. "¡Espera!" The younger boy ran toward the older one on instinct, but apparently his help was not needed. "¿Estás loco? ¡Casi te rompes el cuello!" Someone who spoke Spanish might have known that Diego was calling Luke crazy and shouting that the young man could have broken his neck. In either case Diego knew the odds weren't on his side, so he switched to Luke's language of choice. He didn't speak it well, but he knew someone else who did.
I got ya, D.
The truce these two had come to was young and tenuous, but instant translation of whatever Diego heard or wanted to say was indeed invaluable. "Hey! That was, ah... pretty impressive." There was a hint of sarcasm in the younger boy's voice as well as a thick and heavy Uruguayan accent. He displayed a bit of flexibility and strength himself as he started making his way up to that guy's level.
Luke watched in silence as the other teen yelled something at him in a weird language. Luke was.......a slow learner, especially when he had to learn something as complicated as a whole new language. So it was no surprise when Luke had no idea what Language the other teen was using to shout at him, all he knew was that he was being shouted at. Usually that meant one of two things, he was either in trouble or he was being cheered on, but judging from the other teens expression he had guessed that he was being yelled at.
Luke tilted his head and laughed "those are funny sounds" he said as he watched the younger teen climb up, he himself was pretty impressed with the fact that the other males climbing talent. He perked up when Diego spoke in Japanese, Lukes grin widened. Now then, Luke wasn't a very bright teen, so like any-other non-bright teen, the sarcasm in the sentence was lost to him. "Shishishishi thanks!, took a lot of practice!" he chirped "your not bad at climbing either!, your as fast as my Sensai!"

Psychemon didn't do her job, but maybe that was for the best. The first thing Luke had said to him wasn't very nice. However, Diego noticed.
What did he say?
Let's just say you won't like it.
Trust me, D.
The young boy grumbled as he reached a similar elevation to the older boy, though he tried to keep it quiet since it wasn't directed at the older boy or anybody that boy could even see. At least the next exchange between the two was a compliment, and to be fair it was rather well-earned. Diego looked like he found the right branch to get on Luke's level quite quickly and made it there without excessive effort. "Ya really gotta be so loud, guy?" Diego grumbled after settling in. Of course he couldn't be as direct with the older boy as he wanted because, well, he was older. "Exciteable, ain't ya?"
Luke was not aware that he could be rather Blunt at times, he was to thick headed to see that sometimes he said mean things with out meaning to. Never the less he didn't pick up the unkind thing he had said and instead watched the younger teen as he managed to get on the same level branch as the energetic 17 year old.
The teen merely laugh his weird laugh when the other had said that he was very loud, hes always been like that, it was something he really couldn't control, he really didn't have an inside voice "Yes!, because then how are people going to hear me!" he chirped with a huge grin on his face. Being hyper active was in his blood, apparently he took after his mother way to much, well at lest thats what the people in his old home told him. she was a very happy and hyper little girl and she still was as an adult.
"YUP!, who wants to be boring, its no fun being quiet and sitting still" the teen said as he sat down on the branch, his feet dangling

I like this guy.
Of course you do. Hey, how do you say, "See you, weirdo," in English?"
Aww, D, come on! I'm havin' fun!
Lemme have this one, then! I talk for you all the time. You can talk for me this one time, right?
Well, if she really wanted to, she could do just that without asking permission. But she was. Diego supposed that counted for something. Under pressure from his own hallucination, Diego gave in. His entire demeanor changed. He grinned at the other kid as if actually enjoying this conversation for Psychemon's sake. His words were all words she suggested for him, and she spoke through him. Diego even mimicked the reciprocal tone Psychemon wanted him to. "Heck yeah, dude! Preach it!" Diego found a slightly higher branch to sit on, but given their height and age difference that made Diego about eye level with him.
Luke was humming happily on his tree branch not at all worried that the other younger teen was taking a bit to answer. After all this wasn't a race, maybe his new friend was just trying to think of what to say next, after all he was sure that they were from another country, at lest thats what he assumed when he had heard the other younger teen speak for the first time.
The 17 year old perked up when he heard his new friend speak, Luke wasn't the most observant of people and completely missed the change in personalty and demeanor in his new friend. Instead the teen grinned back at his friend "shishishishishi!, see!, its better to be louder!" the older teen said, his eyes sparkling with child like excitement.
It was really hard to take the idiot seriously sometimes honestly.
"what do you do for fun anyways" Luke asked suddenly, his grin still present on his face, he wanted to know more about his new friend.
