His big brother who happens to be hanging around in the background when Kasuka finally gets the urge to go address this network thing again. He doesn’t seem to mind or even really notice, though, instead staring blankly at the screen like it’s about as interesting as watching paint dry. Take no offense -- he’s just as emotionally dead as usual, and his voice matches when he speaks up.]
This city is weird. Not as weird as I thought at first, though. It’s almost... like home, in some ways. People just going around living as fast as they can while weird things happen over their heads.
[He pauses again, not quite sure what else to say. He just wanted to make sure he didn’t get too far out of current events, honestly. But Shizuo’s hovering has been noticed more than it seemed, and after the slightest narrowing of his eyes, he turns to question him.]
Why are you staring?
[Shizuo blinks, as if he’s only just realised that he’s... perhaps not being as subtle as he could be. Not that it’s particularly easy for a six foot tall blond guy to really be subtle when attempting to lurk.]
… I’m not staring. I was just... [...
Why? It isn’t that interesting...
I wanted to.
[Shizuo is treated to a long, flat stare. Flat even for Kasuka. He’s judging you, big bro.]
...I don’t understand.
Doesn’t matter. I’m here, just... do the damn post. [He’s looking a little flustered now. Like he just got caught with his hand in the proverbial cookie jar.]
There wasn’t anything else to say. Why are you uncomfortable?
[... Shizuo twitches. Rather than answer verbally, he folds his arms across his chest and glares at the back of the sofa, muttering something under his breath.]
I can’t hear that. Brother... [If he were emotive, he’d be exasperated. As it is, he just stares at Shizuo much more intently than Shizuo was staring at his screen.]...you’re being difficult as always.
[Shizuo glances briefly up at Kasuka, only to freeze slightly when he sees the stare he’s being fixed with. There’s an awkward, and somewhat confusing staring contest between the siblings for a few seconds, before Shizuo spins on his heel with a slight ‘tch’, and stalks off screen a little tensely.]
[Kasuka watches Shizuo go for a moment, then turns to look at the screen entirely again.]
I’m sorry for his behavior. That’s all...
[And with that he switches the feed off.]
(Kasuka and Shizuo. Beware, commenters are subject to response from both brothers!)
