Kochira wa Amerika no hon (lol)
"Sumimasen, Sel-kun?", Deem asked
"Hai?", Sel replied.
"Ohayo gozaimasu!!! O-genki desu ka?"
Sel yawned for a moment. "Genki desu,ka?...Wait why the ******** are we speaking Japanese? We're not even Nippon-jin or Nihon-jin!"
"Correction Sel I'm not Nippon-jin, I'm Amerika-jin and you're half Nippon-jin"
"A so desu ka?"
There was a moment of awkward silence between the two.
"Lets just go" They both said in unison.
Deem and Sel walked out of the Japanese hotel and were on their way to get something to eat. Deem's stomach was aching, "Man I'm hungry arn't you sel?" Selscol shook his head no, "Unlike some of us I ate at the hoteru." Deem scratched his head with confusion, "The what?" Selscol just shook his head again and put his fingers infront of his face. "The hotel genius."
"Oh that hotel,they had food there !?" Sel stared at Deem for a second and finally said... "Ha!,you obviously can't read Japanese can you?" Deem shrugged as if he wasn't trying to deny it, "What gives you that conclusion?" Deem said low as if he didn't want anyone around to hear the conversation. Selscol rolled his eyes.
"I dunno the fact there were about twelve, sushi, eel, sashimi, and tenpura signs in the hotel!", Selscol said sarcastically so he could notify Deem that he couldn't read and he knew it. Deem rubbed the back of his head, "Hey maybe I don't like thoes types of foods."
"Just admit it you're one of the many among the Japanese illiterate." Selscol chucked out insultingly. Deem rolled his eyes, "What are you talking about I can read Japanese in Roman letters." selscol looked down and nodded "Well sorry to tell you Deem... but it's not the same as Kanji." Deem's mouth dropped, "What? are you serious, how am I supposed to survive if I can't read" Just as Deem said that, a girl with blackish bluish hair bumped into Sel "uh." The school girl dropped her books "...Shitsurei shimasu." Deem offered his hand to help the girl up, "No excuse me and you'd have to excuse my freind over there, he's rude and unattractive plus to top it all off he snores." Deem whispered so Sel wouldn't here. Selscol gave Deem a cold look as if he knew exactly what Deem was saying. Sel tapped Deem on the shoulder "I don't think she speaks english" he said quietly to Deem so the girl couldn't hear, then the girl gave Deem and Sel a queer look "Ya know I do speak English, but that's not exactly the reason I'm staring at you so weird. The reason is that..." She pointed to what was hooked on Deem's rear pants and what was on sel's back "well the reason is, Sel you have a chain sword and a defender blade and you Deem-san have two automatic katanas that flip open and shoot."
"How the heck did she know that!?", said Deem and Sel in Unison.
The girl took out Deem's katana and waved it out in public to show that they might as well walk around town doing that. "Do you not see how obvious it is that you guys have weapons. You're not even trying to conceal them." She stated. Deem was just standing there quiet watching her talk and wave around his katana then Deem finally realized that what she was doing might have been illegal so he snatched away the katana from her. "Are you crazy!? Your silly antics can get me in trouble." Sel interrupted, "Us in trouble" ,The girl gave Deem back his arsenal "Very well than, Sayonara.""Was that weird or what sel?", Deem said to Sel with conviction but sel just shrigged "Heh. It's japan"
Deem and Sel were walking threw Oosaka "..So sel since I can only read Roman letters what do you suggest I do?" Sel reeled off the list of options that Deem could possibly use. "You could ,one, learn how to read japanese. Two get someone to read it for you and not me. Or you could move to a big city in Japan where they probably might use that style of writing, some where like the capital of Japan, some where like-"
"TOKYO!!!" The twelve year old girl that they met before popped up behind Deem and inturrupted Sel.
"Oh not her again..." Sel and Deem said
