Once Rappapa arrived at their hotel rooms at the water park for their weekend trip, Yuzuki lingered in between their joined suites for a moment. She busied herself letting Neko out of her cat carrier and setting out her favorite pillow bed on the floor and getting her comfortable. Really, she was passing time before going to the room so that Asami could pick which bed she wanted first. After she was assured that the black cat was settled in well, she looked up upon hearing Kaho burst back through the door noisily to announce that the park was still open for another three hours. At that news Yuzu hurried off to grab one of her new bikinis from her suitcase to go change. She hesitated for a moment, recalling the incident at the beach at the Isle where she had lost her top in the waves that Reira had recently reminded her of. Biting her lip thoughtfully, she returned the garment to the suitcase and instead took the more sturdy one piece bathing suit she had bought earlier in the week at Jusco, and hurried over to the bathroom to change.

After she had emerged, she stopped to pick up the television remote, flipping the channels idly for a moment. She was a bit surprised to find Kabuki TVs signal, and to see the movie double feature starting. So it ended up that her first hours of vacation were spent in the room watching the first of the films. During one of the intervals showing the ghost investigation ongoing at the abandoned camp, her eyes widened as she spotted the shadow of a boom mic operator on one of the cabin walls. Quickly rummaging her phone from her purse, the gate guardian was soon on the line with the producers reporting her finding of a genuine ghost!

Tuesday, late morning:
It was Yuzuki's turn to leave the school on the mission to bring lunch back to the Rappapa club room. When she turned to walk down the sidewalk from KSCS she spotted a small crowd of delinquents observing the front of the new restaurant - Ekte Istanbul Kebab. Only having been open for an hour, the local delinquents seemed uncertain and only watched from some distance away, curious but nervous to be the first to try the unfamiliar food. Yuzuki walked up more boldly, and sniffed at the scent of the roasting meat coming from the new establishment. Other delinquents watched as she went inside, and emerged after a few moments with a large to go bag containing lunch for all of Rappapa. As she started down the sidewalk back toward KSCS she sneakily stole a french fry from the bag and nibbled it experimentally. Seeing her look of pleased contentment, the rest of the waiting delinquents rushed the doors of the shop to place their own orders.

This Friday night on KabukiTV!

Friday Night Fright Fest
A Night of Curses!




Your mistress of scares is back for another Fright-day night dedicated to the cursed...! Do you dare watch the trio of cursed films? The marathon beings with the Ring starting at 8 PM, followed by The Grudge and Noroi after!

_________

During breaks throughout the marathon Raven's segments will be cut into by something eerie.. Haunting sounds, static, and haunting images of something coming nearer and nearer to the screen. Some of these segment-cuts will be showing footage from the Make your own Horror Short event that are inspired by the found footage horror genre.

Monday morning, Yuzuki crept back into the seemingly deserted KSCS, using Rappapa's own secret path. She had woken early without knowing quite why, and being bored she decided to walk down to the school. After roaming over to the club room for a bit, she wandered down to the faculty office and began to play with the intercom system. After fumbling with the amplifier for a few moments, she located the button that played the Westminster chimes through the speakers across the building. Smiling, she enjoyed the tune while looking out the window at the sunny view of the canal.

Elsewhere in the building one janitor fled in terror, and a group of shrimps who heard the sound of the chimes as they were walking past the front gate on their way to the basketball courts down the street. By lunchtime the word had spread around all of Kabuki Street that the building really was haunted after all.

After years of regularly spending fifty or more hours every week regardless of any additional work, Mallory has been seen at the Lyceum for no longer than six hours a day for the last month — and has been taking more days off. Books are still acquired, items are still enchanted, and consultations are still booked by the blood witch, but she has been letting her and Safiya’s employees take on a more active role at the shop without her presence.

Perhaps aware of the tie between herself and her shop’s brand, or capitalizing on the RhyDin holonet’s latest trends, speechless ASMR videos have started being uploaded to the Lyceum’s social media. In them, Mallory’s hands can be seen brewing potions, inscribing spellbooks, creating ritual circles, and crafting enchantments. Though the act of creating a cut is never filmed, her blood is occasionally spilled during her work in videos that have been tagged accordingly.

It was during the earliest hours of the afternoon, just as many that lived on Kabuki street were commuting back to their places of work from their lunch breaks that Akarui slipped into each other dorms, as well as inside of Sunny Mart. All so he could ensure that his handwritten note could be seen by a number of people around Kabuki street.

With the holiday and end of term approaching, rumors circulated around KSCS that Rappapa have been camped in their club room for several days, and apart from individual trips out - at least one member has been present inside the former office and storeroom at all times. On the night of the 11th it seemed a number of them were enjoying a late night swim in the adjacent indoor pool.

While much of her Saturday had been looking over houses and apartments with Tomo (and revisiting ones Tomo had went to earlier in the week because her notes weren't.. well, they weren't exactly in depth — but she did agree with the "Ugly door" comment made about one of them after viewing it for herself; though the door wasn't the only thing ugly about that place), the two of them would soon enough meet up with the rest of Rappapa in front of the movie theater for a double feature.

Yuzuki hadn't been very busy for the week, with very little work progressing on the clean up of the old storefront that Asami had bought that would become the dojo in time having taken place. She spent most of the day resting, but then was restless and excited to go out with her Rappapa companions for the double feature. Given the two movies to watch, she opted for the extra large popcorn and took full advantage of the free drink refills!

Kaho was stubbornly determined to be comfortable for a whole two movies in the theater, so she was adamant about wearing her pajamas to the Rappapa double feature movie night. She also ended up eating quite a lot of Yuzuki's popcorn.
