“Good,” The man extends his hand out to Todomatsu, “The name is Ros!”
“Totty,” Todomatsu smiles at him. He gave a polite bow to his new boss, “Thank you for hiring me!”
“Now, now. No need for formalities.” Ros chuckled, waving his hand at his new employee with dismissal, “You think you can work a little today?”
“Great, I need you to serve some customers their beer, then tend to the beds upstairs.” He hands him an apron with a cat on it, “Got it? I’ll pay you once you’re done for the day.”
“Thank you!” He took the apron into his hands.
Todomatsu served the beer to each table with ease. He made conversation with several men; that were at the pub. He had an easier time adjusting to socializing to anyone other than his brothers.
“Hey kid, you heard about what happened to Sarkana?” One of the men asked him, as he took a whiff of his beer.
Todomatsu paused. He had almost forgotten about Sarkana. After, all he had been through. He had completely forgotten about her. How could he? He was a terrible person for forgetting! She must hate them for forgetting about her.
“What happened?” Todomatsu finally asked.
The guy placed down his beer, tapping the jug. Todomatsu knew that was the cue to pour more beer into his jug, “Where have you been? Living in a cave?” Several of his buddies, who were with him snickered.
“Traveling.” Todomatsu shrugged his shoulders. It took a lot for him to suppress his anger. When Osomatsu hears about what happened. He would not be pleased. None of them will be. But, his eldest brother would take it much harder. He was a lot closer to Totoko than other of his brothers.
“Ahh, that explains it.”
“Is the princess, okay?” Todomatsu pressed for more...
... middle of paper ...
...dn’t move. The pain was unbearable.
“H-Help me.....” He managed to utter out.
“Osomatsu!” Choromatsu called out to his eldest brother, placing his hands over his brother. Greenlight glowing. He used up all the energy he had on his brother, wanting the pain, his brother was experiencing to be gone.
He felt the pain dissipate in an instant, “Choromatsu.” The pain was replaced with a warm and fuzzy feeling.
“Nii-san.” Choromatsu smiled, peering down his hands.
“You did it.”
“I did--” Choromatsu barely finished his sentence, he fell to the ground with a thump.
“Choromatsu!” Matsuzo called out to his son.
“Choromatsu!” Osomatsu shook his brother, “Choromatsu!”
Osomatsu could Tougou’s laughter as he was being taken away .
He could still hear that laughter today.
“I’ll kick your ass, Tougou. That I swear.” He declared, “Totoko, I’m coming.”

- Little Women, a Satire of Traditional Chick Literature History tends to be full of incredible ironies such as when authors are only widely remembered for a work that they themselves loathed, such as the case with Sir Arthur Doyle and his creation, Sherlock Holmes. One of the greatest ironies in American literature is that Lousia May Alcott is solely remembered for writing the historical fiction novel Little Women. At that time, it was seen as a book written primarily for young women readers, perhaps a type of chick literature for its time.... [tags: Louisa May Alcott, Little Women, Orchard House]

- An Analysis of Geoffrey Hill’s Little Apocalypse Seamus Heaney’s “The Redress of Poetry” reveals the idea that “it is the imagination [of poetry] pressing back against the pressure of reality (1).” The two opposing forces of imagination and reality are active in Geoffrey Hill’s “Little Apocalypse.” The poem deals with the personal religious conflict of Friedrich Hoderlin (1770-1843), a German lyric poet. Hill focuses on Hoderlin’s struggle with his strong belief in Greek mythology and then Contemporary Protestant theology.... [tags: Little Apocalypse]

- When anyone thinks about a children’s fairy tale the most common ones that can come to mind is “Little Red Riding Hood”. Fairy tales convey a hidden message to children. Like how in “Little Red Riding Hood” the message is to not talk to strangers. Fairy tales have been created to help children understand things in a fun and enjoying way. Not every kid can learn and understand things the same way; it all depends on what they have been taught and exposed to in their life. There is controversy between the way these messages are conveyed to young children, like how in “Little Red Riding Hood” the story ends with Riding Hood and her grandmother being eaten by the wolf which can be frightening to...

- Analyse the development of Social work, the major changes that have taken place during 1960 The British social policy has its origin from the Poor Laws, dating from 1598 to 1948. The Poor Law amendment act (1834) modified the existing social system today. It provided a compulsory poor rate and helped set the poor to work, and make it illegal for anyone to receive any other help apart from the workhouse.

- Work can be a real pain in the neck, but working for someone you don’t like can quickly turn a pain in the neck into a pain in the you know where—before you know it, work is no longer just a sore subject but a bitter one. Your boss, manager, or supervisor are all people that can make or break your day. They’re the ones who control the work environment—for better or worse. I have thus far only had one job, but I’ve seen many managers come and go. Most managers have similar qualities; however, what sets them apart are their differences—my managers Araceli and Sheila are no exception to the rule....

- Question #1 The primary goal of social work is to increase overall human well-being, however; whether this is done through individual treatment or social reform is up for debate (Haynes, 1998). Some advocates of the profession believe that it should take on a generalist approach that is multidimensional (Abramovitz, 1998). By using this framework, social workers are able to work on social issues and treat the individual. Part A According to the NASW Code of Ethics (2008), the primary goal of social work is to, “…enhance human well-being and help meet the basic human needs of all people, with particular attention to the needs and empowerment of people who are vulnerable, oppressed and living...

- ... Sandberg elaborates her reasoning by saying “I believe that if more women lean in, we can change the power structure of our world and expand opportunities for all”(Sandberg, 171). She is telling her own story as well as others to fully relate to the audience in hope of change. A key component of a narrative is to reveal desired identities, evaluations of people and relationships. Revealed is not only her desire to be a successful businesswoman and loving mother, but also a feminist. Sandberg sees the identity of a feminist as distinguished; she thinks that if more people begin to reveal this identity that it will reveal a bias that many try to ignore (Sandberg, 158)....

- An Interpretation of What Work Is Richard Hugo once wrote "Philip Levine knows a few things so well that he cannot forget them when he writes poetry." I believe that one of these things is the subject of work. Levine's theme of work comes from his past experiences of growing up and working during the time of World War II. Philip Levine grew up in Detroit, Michigan during this very difficult time for the United States. His thoughts were occupied with the war and the fear of being sent overseas; therefore his attention was not focused on such things as poetry.... [tags: What Work Is Essays]
