Blind dates can be very interesting; you never know who (or what) might show up.

Despite the mystery and possible excitement of a rapidly-approaching date, however, the person standing and quietly waiting at the Hachiko statue in Shibuya seems utterly tranquil and unaffected by any sort of tension or apprehension.

He's dressed well, fashionable but not overly flashy (and minus the sunglasses, which are currently hanging off his shirt-collar by one folded arm), and his expression is blank, his eyes empty as his gaze moves over the crowd. In his hand: a single pink carnation, the item his blind date is supposed to look for to know he's the one they're supposed to meet.

Strange as it sounds, Kasuka Heiwajima--better known as "Yuuhei Hanejima", the super-talented actor and super-famous idol--has somehow ended up on a blind date. After a few moments, his eyes stop scanning the crowd, focusing on one approaching figure...

[The girl approaching could hardly be called calm. There's an extra bounce to her step, an almost childish fascination as she twists her torso and turns her head, taking in every one of the city's sights as though every moment held a kind of novelty to it. The sights of men and women going about their lives, the buildings and lights, the miracles that science had brought about.

But that excitement is only a mask for the anxiety rushing through her and melts away as her eyes focus on her target. There's a pink carnation in her hand. If she had a heart, she's sure that it would be racing right now, and she can feel her legs threatening to lock in place. It's a man that she's never met before. Never even looked at before.

The girl who'd coerced her into it had called it a blind date--apparently, it was something like a rite of passage in this culture? But she'd never even gotten the change to date anyone she knew, let alone a stranger. Wasn't that odd? Marriage wasn't decided like that here too, was it!? More importantly, if it was that important for people to go thorugh, then what would happen if she messed up...!? Wouldn't there be a bunch of weird rumors? Those can go pretty far... Come to think of it, hadn't she been told to dress up for it? But she'd never really tried wearing anything other than this, and she has no eye for color...

It's not until she's stared at him for several seconds before she realizes her mistake to correct from it, approaching with a smile that is quickly melted by uncertainty and worries. She holds her hands up in front of her, almost defensively, and thoughtlessly blurts out her question,]


E-excuse me! Are... Are you Kasuka Heiwajima!?

[Come to think of it, doesn't that name seem familiar? Hmm... Where has she heard it before...?]

IT'S A MIRACLE

Ah! Yes! I-I'm... Ru... Rune! I mean, Rune. Just Rune! Pleased to meet you!

[No matter how many times she says it, there's a tingle of pleasure that accompanies hearing somebody say her name, though it feels a bit different now. It's not the joy of hearing her brother accept her, or the reminder that she has friends who accept her, but something different. It's a warm sensation that promises her that not only her family and friends will recognize her as Rune Zhevitz--the world will.

It also comes with all of the nerves and stuttering and worries that he'll be another person that mistakes her stutter for part of her name.

Rune takes the offered flower, holding it alongside her own. It's possible that she's supposed to give something in return, but her instincts tell her that her country's traditions in courting aren't completely different from this one's. It wasn't uncommon for men to offer small gestures like this. Besides, she's more worried about his surname. Where has she heard that before...?]


It's so pretty! I don't think I've ever seen flowers like this before. Well, I think it would've been hard for flowers to bloom in there th--

[Her statement is cut short, interrupted by an audible gasp as she grips her hand up to cover her mouth, eyes widening in shock. She's done it! She's solved the mystery!]

Wait! Wait a second! Hold on!--Ah! I bit my tongue! [She recovers from that pretty fast, though.] Wait, no, that's not it! I meant to ask--do you have a brother!? Like, a really strong brother!? Like, a totally-gonna-pick-up-a-vending-machine-and-throw-it-at-you strong brother!?

[Her middle descriptor comes out all in the same breath and even after she doesn't skip a beat--perhaps not surprising, given that her capacity for talking. Still, if she seems to have already completely given up at practicing any kind of proper dating etiquette, she does seem fairly invested in the answer.]
