1 This Bazaar Is Bizarre (Kanon, private, nk) on Sun Jan 03, 2016 10:53 am

Partly due to all the missions they'd been doing lately, the twins had been consuming more food than they usually did, coming home exhausted and with empty stomachs from all the missions and training sessions they'd been doing. To replenish their energy, the best way was to eat more food. Of course, with that increase in food consumption, their stock of food had seen a definite decrease in its quantity. They'd been going through eggs and sausage like crazy, as well as most of their Instant Ramen™ from the days they were too exhausted to actually cook any food. Well, from the times that Kanon was too exhausted to actually cook any eggs. Aenon rarely ever cooked, as she was not very good at it, and while Kanon wasn't any top quality chef, at least she could make something without under cooking or burning them.

So it was for this very reason that the twins found themselves having to take a trip to the Bazaar. Besides stocking up their food, Aenon had really been wanting to go on a shopping spree with some of the money they'd been making from all the missions they'd been taking. Getting some new clothes would be great, as when she wasn't training, she did like to dress to impress, even if there really wasn't anybody she wanted to impress. Maybe it was a subconcious thing, but she felt like Kanon didn't think she was all that pretty, and since they were identical, and Aenon took Kanon's views to heart, she wanted to show her how pretty she was and could be. The best part about having a twin was that you always had a mirror on hand to view from. Aenon felt the same way, thinking she was rather bland looking, while her sister looked like a goddess.

Clinging tightly to her sister's arm, Aenon wasn't willing to let go, as the Bazaar was very crowded, and seemed like the type of place it would be easy to lose somebody in. She refused to let either of them get separated, so attached they'd be until Kanon said otherwise, or the crowd of people lessened a little bit.

Exhaustion. It was something that can happen when something is overused. This can be virtually anything. Horses get exhausted when you over work them. So do people. In fact some people may say things like swords and armor  can be exhausted, as they can break, or rust, or dull, or just generally become less effective because of overuse. This also applies to the mind. You can exhaust the mind by causing to be overused at high levels frequently. Kanon, was currently experiencing two forms of exhaustion. Mind and body. From the recent surge of missions that the two girl had been doing, and she wasn't used too, she was simply tired, and would have prefered to take the day off. But, instead they girls needed food, so here she was in the middle of the bazaar searching for food of all kinds. Kanon was also aware that Aenon wanted to go on a shopping spree, but Kanon knew that that would have to wait for another day. Although if her sister really pestered her to go clothing shopping she would agree. She could hardly say no to that little ball of nervous energy. She let out an internal sigh, and her gaze shifted to the deep blue sky that was filled with light fluff filled clouds, and bird. With not many of either, but enough to know that they were there. She wondered how mom did it. How mom not only handled Aenon, but she also knew that she herself wasn't the easiest thing to handle. She supposed she could never receive those answers now.

As the girls entered the bazaar the crowd thickened as Kanon had expected it to. Although what she hadn't expected was Aenon to cling to arm instead of the simply hand holding which they normally did. It's not as though Kanon was opposed to this. In fact she even enjoyed it a little bit. She was merely surprised by it was all. That being said, she didn't have to ask Aenon her reasoning. She knew the girl well enough by know to know what she was doing. The crowd was thick, and thus it was easy to lose people in. Aenon was making sure that there was no way in hell that that was happening. Although a little blush had appeared on Kanon's face, she remained unwavered, and still continued walking at the same pace with her eyes scanning the stalls, and boards posted. Finally they made there way to the produce section. Since they finally had a bit more money, Kanon figured she didn't need to limit herself to simply just Eggs, sausage and ramen, she could get a bit more in depth. And so she went from stall to stall being things like spices, herbs, vegetables, meats, and finally her eggs. There wasn't much talking that went on between these exchanges as Aenon didn't like talking, and Kanon was too tired to really want to talk to much. So the amount of exchange that went on was very minimal. Finally Kanon bought the two girl's lunch and they sat down at a park bench to eat.

"So did you spot anything you liked?" Kanon said to Aenon as they sat down outside of the bazaar, and sitting at a bench in a park with their bags of groceries next to them. Luckily no frozens.Kanon was asking this because she wanted to return home quickly to place everything in the fridge so it didn't go bad. As well as she simply wanted to sleep the rest of the day. Or, at the very least, relax a little bit, and so if she hadn't spotted anything that the girls could go pick up quickly Kanon would suggest that the girl's go home and catch some shut eye.

As the pair of twins wandered through the Bazaar, passing by all sorts of random little vendors and stalls and stands, Aenon allowed herself the opportunity to look at some of them in passing. As long as she was holding so tightly on to her sister, it didn't matter if she wasn't watching the road or the crowd around them, because Kanon could easily direct them out of the way of other people. They received a few odd stares and glances though, which was making Aenon a little self conscious, because she didn't like people staring at her. It was probably over the whole fact that they were twins and that Aenon was being incrediby clingy and shy. Rather than focus on her growing embarassment though, Aenon busied herself with looking around at some of the shops around.

Oddly enough, there was a cluster of 5 restaurants, all of which seemed to be selling the same thing: Miso Pork. This kind of confused her. "Umm.. why would anyone put their business right next to a direct competitor? Let alone four of them. Doesn't that make them lose out on business? I'd have put them all in separate rows or something like that." she said, kind of to herself, and kind of to Kanon. Later on, they passed a small curio stand, which sold little odds and ends, trinkets and baubles. Those kinds of things really appealed to Aenon, who wanted to stop and look at them, but she knew that Kanon was in more of a grocery mood, and didn't want to spend too much time here at the moment, and Aenon would probably spend hours just looking around at things that fascinated her. After all, they still had to go home, unpack their groceries, and put them away before they could even enjoy a little rest and relaxation.

Then there was a little instrumental stand that caught Aenon's eye. It sold little flutes and harmonicas and maracas, and was just calling out to Aenon's little heart. She'd always wanted to get a flute, they sounded really pretty whenever she'd heard them. The main problem is that she had no reason to get one, as she'd never have time to really use it and enjoy it, because it would just be one more thing that she needed to learn. She had no clue how to play, and wasn't sure she'd have the natural talent to learn in a timely fashion.

After a while, it seemed that they had gotten all the items they came to get, and a little bit more. Really all they needed to get in the first place had been simply some eggs and sausages, but Kanon had seen fit to finding some more herbs and spices to up the flavor of their meals. They also got some more assortments of meats and vegetables, which meant one thing in Aenon's mind. They'd be having omelettes soon, which were like a step up on the rating. Good omelettes were like a 5 star meal in their house. Although, she was also sure that they would be having more than just eggs and sausage too, because they had gotten quite a bit.

And just like that, they were done. It had all come and gone rather quickly for Aenon, who spent most of her time taking in the sights. Kanon had got them some lunch, and they sat down to eat it, Aenon rather hungrily, as she ate more when she was getting more tired. Shaking her head at Kanon's question when asked if she had found anything, Aenon sighed. "No, not on this go around. I wish I did, but we just didn't have the time to thoroughly search I guess" she replied, looking at her twin, who seemed rather tired. They should be heading home anyhow, to put away the groceries, and then get some rest and relaxation and just chill around the house.

"No, not on this go around. I wish I did, but we just didn't have the time to thoroughly search I guess" Was Aenon's response to Kanon's question. Kanon frowned a little. It had been the response she was hoping for, but it made her feel a little guilty. Her sister sounded disappointed, and Kanon had kinda rushed through getting all of the supplies, barely giving her sister time to look things over, and what not. Kanon then looked up to her sister and with a tired expression gave her an eye smile and then spoke saying "Tell you what. Once we get home, and put everything away, and maybe rest a bit, we can come back and look through the other sections. Sound good?" She would then plant a kiss on her sister's cheek, and then take a bite out of her sandwich. Which wasn't the best sandwich she had ever had, but it was still pretty good.

Kanon would savior her sandwich, but still eat it at a slighter faster pace than she normally ate things. Then once she was finished she would gather up the groceries, and the two girls would begin walking home, at also a slightly faster pace than normal. Aenon clung to Kanon as she had on the way into the Bazaar, to which Kanon didn't mind. She liked it when her sister was close to her.

Travelling back through the bazaar was much more difficult then on their way in. This was for 2 main reasons. The first being, that anyone who was working today, was now on lunch break, and the second reason being that the two girls were carrying a bunch of groceries with them. Both these things led them to have to push and brush past a crowd of individuals. Almost needing to force their way through each and every step. This persisted, even up to half a block away from the entrance of the bazaar. Needless to say it was blocked. To this degree, Aenon probably hadn't noticed anything walking out, through all of the bodies. But, eventually they made it out of the crowds on people, relatively unharmed. The girls then made their way home.

"Tell you what. Once we get home, and put everything away, and maybe rest a bit, we can come back and look through the other sections. Sound good?" Aenon's sister asked, as if she could tell that Aenon was disappointed that she wasn't able to actually go around and shop. Aenon smiled and nodded her head, blushing slightly as her sister kissed her cheek. It was simply a natural response and she couldn't help it, but it made her happy that her sister cared about her feelings so much that she'd make the trip back out here so that Aenon could waste her time looking through a bunch of things she wouldn't get anyhow. After all, the main reason she wanted to shop was FOR Kanon anyhow. It was kind of ironic, the way the two acted. They both sacrificed what they wanted for the other, although their original purposes were FOR the other.

Taking another bite of her sandwich, Aenon made a satisfied sound. She was simple to please, not requiring a gourmet meal, most food tasted good to her, probably better than most would. She liked food enough that anything was good. She and Kanon finished eating around the same time, which surprised Aenon, because she was usually the one done first, but then again, Kanon was in a slight rush. As they went to leave, Aenon once again clung to her sister's arm, and they went off.

Pushing their way through the crowd in what seemed to be one of the most intense crowds she'd ever seen, the twins struggled to gain any ground. It had actually made it impossible for her to look around, not only because she couldn't see past all the people, but also because she had to actually concentrate on not losing her grip on her sister.

After they made it through the intense crowd, the girls found their way home with ease. And even though the crowd let up, Aenon didn't go to her usual place with her sister, in holding her hand, and instead stayed where she was at by hanging on her arm. It's not that Kanon minded, it's just that that wasn't where here sister usual was, and the two were closer than they usually were. Well aside from in the bed that was. And, because of this blush littered a crossed kanon's face. She turned her face away from Aenon looking towards the other direction, letting her eyes wander and search for whatever they could to distract her. She didn't want her sister to see the blush on her face and think that she didn't want her that close, so she figured that she would be better off hiding it. Luckily, The girl's reached their house relatively quickly, with the lack of having to push through the crowd. So Kanon unlocked her door as fast as she could and pushed her way inside, quickly breaking off from her sister as she moved into the kitchen, set the groceries down, and then began the meticulous work of putting all of the groceries away. 

They had a lot of groceries. More than Kanon was used too. And, she rarely put them away by herself. It was typically her and their mother that did it and so this was one of the first times that Kanon was doing it by herself.. So, it took a bit longer than she had orignally figured it would. But, eventually she powered through it and got everything sorted and put away in it's proper place. Then she went into the bedroom and plopped face first on the bed. she didn't even bother taking off her clothing as she simply kicked off her shoes, and then adjusted herself and put the blanket over her, then she slowly closed her eyes before realizing that something was missing. A warm presence by her side, typically accompanied with two arms wrapped around her. Blush littered her face one more. "A-Aenon!" She would call slightly embarrassed to the girl that was currently in the living room. She would then wait for Aenon to peak her head into the room and as her what she needed, as she almost always did. Her eyes darts towards the bed sheet, not being able to look her sister in the face as she posed the embarrassing question. "W-would you come lay with me?... It feels like something is missing, and i can't fall asleep." Her face was bright red as she stared at the bed sheets, not being able to look at Aenon, but patiently awaiting a reply.

Once they'd gotten home, Aenon plopped down on the couch, closing her eyes to rest for a moment. Though she wouldn't be the first to admit it, she was kind of tired herself, not able to push on through her own exhaustion as well as her sister, who was more strong willed and able to push through what she set her mind to. Having been out all day, or at least all of the morning, and past lunch, as well as having to push through crowds of people and go through the task of fighting against a flow was tiring work. Within a few minutes, Aenon had fallen into a small little trance, zoned out. She wasn't really sleeping, but it wasn't entirely true to say that she was awake and alert. Meanwhile, her sister had set to work unpacking their groceries, putting them where she and her mom usually kept things stalked. It would take a little longer than normal, as they had gotten more than they usually did, and only one person was actually doing the work right now as opposed to the two of them, Kanon and their mother, that had usually been the ones to do it. For whatever reason, Kanon didn't like Aenon to help unpack, so Aenon had stopped even trying to put things away.

Aenon reflected a tad bit on their training, their missions, and the other tasks they'd been undertaking as of late. Numerous as they had been, their time spent sleeping was actually greater than usual, because they went through energy quicker. Although, it was paying off, for sure. They weren't low on money anymore, they were starting to feel the benefits of training, and soon the two of them would start taking on more dangerous missions, ones that would require actual fighting. Although it wasn't a guarantee. However, most bandits weren't a match for even the weakest of genin, unless in larger numbers. The chakra control just wasn't there, and chakra gave such an advantage in a fight that someone without it would always be at a huge disadvantage. Her train of thought just continued wandering from there until a voice snapped her out of her trance. Kanon was calling for her. Getting off the couch, Aenon went to their room, poking her head in the door. "W-would you come lay with me?... It feels like something is missing, and i can't fall asleep" her sister said, embarassed for some reason. Aenon nodded silently, kicking off her own shoes and going to the bed, plopping down next to her sister, sticking out her tongue for a moment.
