[Open] Working


Who: Gintoki, Katsura and you!
When: Soon after Gintoki's arrival in Cerealhell
Where: Just answer the door, it's your house.
What: Gintoki's trying out his new job.
Warnings: Stupid samurai in this log.  Teal text for Gintoki, Blue for Katsura.




[ It’s a pleasant day. The sun is shining. You’re minding your own business, probably sitting on the toilet with your CEREVice and you aren’t expecting any visitors today. Maybe you are, but you’re going to get a visit from two uninvited people right about . . . now. Better wipe quick. And even if you don’t, they are going to find a way into your home one way or another. You know, typical persistent salesmen.

They both have oddly matching mustaches that seem to resemble a certain red and blue clad plumber, only they are both more handsome by ten fold ( at least one of them is, you can guess which (it’s the long haired one, no doubt, even though his hair is alive. . .).

On top of that, they’re both wearing standard Strawberry Milky issue pink uniform, accessorized with only the most fashionable strawberry attire..

Both seem to be walking briskly with a box of something-or-another in their arms, nattering something-or-another while doing so, almost arguing, the distant and soft cry of “Even if it really was a wig, I would wash it daily! I don’t know how many times I have to tell you this—” before casting you a wary sidelong glance as you open the door before turning to face whoever answers the door. Oh, shit? Somebody actually answered the door.

Just what could these completely not shady people be trying to sale to you today? Seriously, it was a complete and utter mystery, wasn’t it? Surely it had nothing to do with strawberries— not at all! ]


Aah, you answered the door. [He doesn’t smile, hardly reacts at all while he’s talking. No, instead he’ll reach out and take your hand, turning it palm upwards before setting a small cardboard carton into your palm. The other main seems just as collected as the other, keeping quiet for the time being. ]

That’ll be 3 credits.

[He’ll hold out his hand expectantly. When you show a little reluctance to pay, possibly - though why would you??- he’ll give a slight frown. ]

What do you mean you don’t want to pa--

[ The white haired man’s sentence is interrupted by a jab from the other man with his elbow into his ribcage, his teeth baring slightly behind his lips before he leans over, muttering something in Gintoki’s ear: ]

Gintoki, is that the kind of attitude you have when you usually try to scam people? I don't think they're going to fall for it. Perhaps we should just skip to the drastic measures. Plan B!


[ the fact Katsura says this just makes it more obvious they're doing such a horrible job at this. His eyes blink, darting to you, then back to Gintoki. Zura's attention perks up to the customer and he clears his throat: ]

Good afternoon. We're two sales-people selling a specific kind of milk that is guaranteed to—


Hold on, hold on, we already sold something here, now if you’ll just pay us--

—Guaranteed to work miracles, such as cleansing your dirty bowels. It’ll even make your test*cles grow--

[The silver-haired guy definitely didn’t just elbow his partner in the throat. The other guy’s coughing something serious, crumbling to his knees, and as you and silver-curls watch, he’ll suddenly reach his hand out, frantically?]

The milk! Give me the milk before it’s too late, it’s the only thing that will save him!

[And that’s when he rips open the milk box, shoving it at his sales partner’s mouth; the pink liquid dribbles down the other’s chin.
There’s coughing, sputtering, probably a booger flying out or two as the black haired man improvises here. He’s going to milk this situation for all it’s worth. Literally. This could be it. This could be the seller.

He grabs his partner’s wrist, staring blankly into the sky.]


I saw a bright light. My life, it flashed before my eyes. I saw little my Heidi-chan, running towards me, her arms outstretched. I saw her grow up and leave the alps to succeed and grow up and become a successful young lady. I.. I see..

[ Another cough and hack. ]


Her own children.. 3.. no, 4 of them.


It is because of this product I will be able to see this wonderful future. It grants life. Everlasting life that will never end, a life as far as I can see into the horizon. Thank you, CERES Strawberry-Milky. Buy it today for only 3 even credits and start your path to everlasting life today!

[ He gives you a thumbs up, and his voice sounds like something gross and out of a 1980's infomercial. Next to him, the silver-haired guy holds up the carton of strawberry milk like a model straight outta the Pr*ce is R*ght.

This is probably the right time for you to slam the door on their faces, interrogate them, call the police. Any or all of the above. ]

[......................

why did he open the door?

Sousei has so many regrets right now. He stands there silently, watching their spiel, the time ticking away into useless time spent--

It's when the milk gets involved that Sousei tries to shut the door.

No. Goodbye. He doesn't even have words.]

Did you rehearse this?

[The only reason Peko didn't close the door on Gintoki (and drop the milk in the process) is because she knows and respects Katsura. Usually respects him, anyway. Is he trying to reenact one of his beloved commercials...? She doesn't seem impressed in the slightest.

This silver-haired guy doesn't look like the pictures of Elizabeth, though. Unless this is what it looks like not wearing the mascot uniform?]

Heck, they could have just gone "hey, want to buy some strawberry milk" and she would have. Would that have been so hard, weird strange men?

You two are the type of people her mother warned her about when she was little, she's pretty sure. ]

Not impressed. He folds his arms across his chest brusquely, glances up at the ceiling irritably as if there was a button there that he could push to eject these two crazy salesmen from his doorstep, and huffs.]


You could have saved yourselves the trouble by simply asking if I wanted to buy a carton of milk instead of forcing one on me and then putting on this shoddy, unnecessary display.

[It's a small wonder he actually stood there to listen to the whole farce this long, really. Throughout the presentation, his face kept its usual line-faced expression, and not once did he raise his voice or arm to interrupt.

The situation with his face doesn't much change once the two are finished, but he does finally speak up. He has something important to say, after all.]


That's... not what happened to Heidi.

--and it's honestly because katsura's his friend that he didn't just close the door right there. ah, yes, testicle growth, life saving miracle milk. that's about what he expected. ]

I think I'm getting used to this. That's concerning. [ yet he's smiling as he mutters that to himself, and a certain dragon is seen walking in the apartment through the open door as he continues: ] You know, if you want to sell that stuff, you should start with something a little more believable. Like, uh... it tastes good? That's usually what people get milk for.
