[Week 17, Day 1, Video]

[The young man is smartly dressed - though the sweater vest he’s wearing is slightly less tightly woven than store-bought ones, given he made it himself - in the type of clothing he’d worn at home, carefully simulated in fabrics available in Kannagara. His black tie is silk, his button-up a slightly off-white and less crisp, his pants rougher cloth. Still, he’s dressed himself well for the occasion, and he grins into the Hitomi (propped up on a counter) just as usual, friendly and sweet.

A little shy wave prefaces his words, and when he pulls his hand back, he fidgets with a black curl for a second before realizing he’s doing it and shoving both hands behind his back.]

Excuse me, everyone? I know I’ve mentioned this to a few of you, but I have a bakery that’s going to be opening in a week or so here in Mizusato. Is anyone in need of employment and interested in such an endeavor? I’ve done most of the building restoration work myself - well, Raikou and I - but I’m going to have a small dining area, and I’ll of course need some assistance with the baking and waitstaff and that sort of thing!

[He blushes a little.]

I thought perhaps since some of the locals are being rather... discriminatory at the moment, I’d open the positions up here first, in case some of you are in need. Even if you’re not looking for a job, I’m offering some specials when we first open up... and in a few days should be having a grand opening party, but I’ll send another reminder of that once things are ready and I decide on the day!

[Oh gods, he’s rambling. Maybe he should hire a marketing department, but he’s pretty sure his business isn’t going to be that profitable.]

Oh, and... if there’s anything you’re used to being able to get at home that you want me to take a crack at, please let me know! I’ve got several types of breads, cakes, cookies, all those sorts of baked goods on the menu, and I just found a supplier for poppyseed to make my personal favorite lemon poppyseed muffins!

[Never mind that he discovered that poppies existed here because her overheard people talking about opium. Shhh.]

And of course there will be lots of chocolate desserts! And tea, and coffee...!

[Okay, now he’s really just rambling. He gives a little sheepish smile and a bow.]

[Rin! Gau feels the same!]

Thank you, Rin-san! I'd love for you to come by!

[He's beaming at you, yes he is.]

I figure it helps us all that way! And besides, I'm trying to keep a proper balance between my personal life and my business, so... I don't want to get so wrapped up I forget everything else.

Re: [video || private]
Isn't it though?

[Gau smiles, a soft blush on his face, and nods at her as if they were talking face-to-face and not through the Hitomi.]

It's really amazing. I know that I have a long way to go still to become what I want to be, but I think this is a good step for me. And you, Rin-san? What are you doing?

Re: [video || private]
Really?

[Gau blinks for a moment at that, tilts his head.]

That'd be really useful! I mean, when I first came here I wound up getting scraps of information from lots of different sources, but there's so much that no one thinks to tell you and...

I've made so many notes about random things that no one even thinks about to say.

[His brow furrows for a second.]

Do you... need help with that?

[They'd thought of him? Why? Well, he supposed he was pretty interested in these things, but he hadn't realized that other people thought about him that way so much.

Or thought about him at all.]

I'd be glad to help! Maybe we could all get together sometime and work on it then?

Re: [video || private]
Hmm. Raikou has been here longer than I have, but I've got notes on most of what he's seen and done too...

[He pauses, laughs a little.]

I don't really know who else would be interested, but I'll see.

Re: [video || private]
That's great! I must have missed your post... I've been so busy with the bakery, and then there were some other things going on...

[He shrugs his shoulders, blushes.]

I'll try to be more attentive. Let me know when you plan on meeting?
