Once upon a time Fujimoto Hinata was a beautiful young woman living in Tokyo, surrounded by the strong, brave men of her family that she very much loved with all of her heart. But the Fujimoto men were a rough n' tumble bunch, often making the kind of hot blooded decisions that could get a man killed. Delinquent fights, acts of dumb heroics, daredevil antics... one by one the silly fools got died. They left poor old Hinata all alone in the care of her dutiful granddaughter, Hiromi.

Hinata is not one to waste away without fulfilling her heart's desires, however! This eccentric entrepreneur has decided to open up one of those trendy cafes the youths like to visit. And instead of something cute like a tea parlor or a sandwich shop, Hinata wished to be surrounded by MACHO MEN. Handsome men of all ages are hired to be the staff of Macho Cafe, here to cater to the whims of giggling patrons with themed nights, costumes, and special events.

Now Hinata wakes up every day with a smile, knowing there are plenty of butts for her to pinch and attractive men to do her bidding. Her granddaughter, on the other hand, is not so amused and has found herself struggling to manage the business end of her grandmother's strange project.


This week Macho Cafe has a theme: Casino Royale! Ms. Fujimoto's boys will be decked out in handsome suits and ready to bring you the dirtiest of Martinis. But something is amiss! A group of delinquents have been terrorizing this quiet little business street, by breaking windows, robbing business, and even assaulting customers. Will the Macho Cafe be next?! (The answer is yes, but can they handle it?! They're just pretty boys in suits with an old lady boss!)



EVENT INFO


WHO: Everyone is invited!

WHAT: You may play an employee or guest of the Macho Cafe! If you are an employee you MUST be a male character. After all, that is the point of the Macho Cafe. Customers can be anything. This setting has no magic or supernatural but is totally anime style, so bring out your favorite anime tropes and shenanigans. Bios and pictures are not required but highly encouraged! Post them here in this thread.

WHEN: MAY 14TH - THURSDAY @ 1PM CENTRAL TIME. Ending @ 4PM.

WHERE: Join us in the MACHO CAFE: SEQUEL CHAT ROOM. You'll find the link to our chats in the CHAT tab. The room is called Macho Cafe: Sequel.



ABOUT THIS ROLEPLAY


This is a SOCIAL ROLEPLAY WITH IMPROVISATIONAL GAME MASTERING. That means the object of this roleplay is to interact with other characters, and from those interactions I will create a plot and story around you. The more interesting and developed your character, the more you interact, the more awesome the plot turns out! This particular setup is for silly fun and not meant to be taken too seriously -- but beware! All actions have in game consequences, so choose wisely!

My roleplays are always NEWBIE FRIENDLY so even if you are terrible at roleplay or have never participated in a ChaRP before, this will be easy for you to get involved in. :D Ask questions, let me know when you need help.

As always, if you have any questions about this plot or roleplay, just ask away!


EASY CHARP TIPS!


Don't worry if another player is doing something similar to your idea. DO IT ANYWAY! Similarities and things in common happen in real life too. Everyone also plays differently, so two characters who are both "sweet and shy" will still end up being totally unique people. Two assassins could create a fun and interesting conflict!

Talking to other players about their character before the roleplay is a GREAT way to create connections and background for your own!

Post SHORT AND FAST. Charps are very quick pace and contain a LOT of players. Players can't wait 20 minutes for you to write a wall of text, and if there's too much text they won't be able to read it fast enough and will MISS details. If it takes you longer than two minutes to type your post, you are taking too long and might get lost in the action. This is an exercise in quick and concise writing!

Like in Real Life, a character may not be able to acknowledge or notice your character immediately because they are engaged in doing something else. (For example a new character walking in to the room, but the other characters arguing about muffins and do not see them.) Don't get discouraged if you go can't get someone to interact with you right away. Just keep posting and doing actions with your character, or even approach others who also seem to be idle and it WILL happen.

Do not take events in the roleplay personally or assume that bad reactions are because they think you/your character sucks. Everyone is playing a character and reacting to things as their character would!

I'd like to play as a guest of the cafe, would I create and describe a character here? Or would I introduce them as the story is in progress?

I posted a small character sheet in the previous Macho Cafe thread, but some others simply stuck them into the ChaRP when the time came. You can do both! Either way, you've got a character.

LOGS TIME!?


  • Diana Diana :
    HOT CHARP TIPS BEFORE IT BEGINS: Make sure your character's NAME is mentioned at the beginning or your post or in the first sentence. This helps everyone remember who they are talking to.
    Today at 1:45 PM​
  • Diana Diana :
    REMEMBER: Post FAST. You post needs to be short and brief. If you type too much text, people will miss details. You also might miss action because you were typing for too long! Keep posts around five sentences.
    Today at 1:48 PM​
  • Diana Diana :
    NOTICE: Game master posts will appear in this bright yellow. Important stuff might be happening there, so pay attention to those!
    Today at 1:49 PM​
  • Diana Diana :
    HAVE FUN: This charp is NEWBIE FRIENDLY! No one cares about typos and mistakes, we're all just rolling with the events and having some fun! So jump on in!
    Today at 1:50 PM​
  • Diana Diana :
    We open on a lovely afternoon, where it is slightly cool outside with a misting of rain and fog. The Macho Cafe is decked out in Casino-like decor for it's Casino Royale theme night. (Somebody wheeled in an arcade machine and there's a naked man statue with a sign covering his bits. But at least all of the fairy lights look neat.) A few elder ladies are playing cards at a table and sipping their drinks. The cafe seems to be having a nice calm and relaxing evening... for now. WELCOME TO THE MACHO CAFE.
    Today at 1:57 PM​
  • The Mood is Write The Mood is Write :
    Nakadashi Hiro quickly wiped-down after his daily exercise. Someone told him before that if he left the smell of sweat on himself, but not the sweat itself, it would make him seem beefier. He flexed in front of the mirror for a few moments....... Still scrawny. Still bony. He had a little bit of deltoid now though, and some pectoral outline that made him look less like a little kid. It wasn't much, but he just couldn't put on any weight! The young man sighed, then shook his head and pulled on his uniform, only to grin at the sight of himself in the mirror.
    Today at 2:04 PM​
  • The Mood is Write The Mood is Write :
    He hurried to work, unable to keep his excitement from his face as he hurried in the staff entrance and clocked in. "H-hi!" he greeted once he got up his guts.
    Today at 2:06 PM​
  • Diana Diana :
    The elder ladies at the card table make a few kissy faces in Hiro's direction. A couple of them could use a refill for sure!
    Today at 2:07 PM​
  • AnxiousEnby AnxiousEnby :
    Oakley Francis would walk to the front of the cafe, it had been a minute since he had been here. The nineteen year old would walk inside, headphones falling around his neck as he paused the music. It seemed that it wasn’t too busy. After placing his order of a sweet tea and a slice of chocolate cake, he would take a seat.
    Today at 2:08 PM​
  • The Mood is Write The Mood is Write :
    Hiro blushed and gave a little salute, then brought over refills for them. "Having a nice evening, princesses?" he asked as he took note that someone new had just arrived, as well.
    Today at 2:09 PM​
  • bananabread bananabread :
    Tokieda Rei was really trying to make it on time, but soccer practice had ran on way too long this time—he'd told Yuichi that he'd have to leave early, but apparently, he was incapable of remembering anything and made him stay back until Rei provided 'proof' that he had a job to go to. He entered through the back door, throwing on the outfit that he was supposed to wear for this night's theme: black suit jacket, autumn-hued plaid waistcoat, ruby-red tie, black pants, and shiny black Oxfords. He attempted to make his hair a little neater (maybe try a braid instead of a ponytail for a change), but gave up and entered the main cafe with a smile and slightly messy hair.
    Today at 2:10 PM​
  • Diana Diana :
    Neither their owner, Miss Fujimoto nor her granddaughter seemed to be in today (which was probably why it was quiet for once), but it was kind of odd that the old woman wasn't here for her Casino Royale night when seeing the boys in suits was one of her favorite things. Strange!
    Today at 2:13 PM​
  • The Mood is Write The Mood is Write :
    Rei's arrival reminded Hiro almost too late that this was a theme night. He gaped a moment, looked around, then wheezed out a quick "Excuse me a moment, please!" before he darted back to the back room, where he donned a black suit over a dark blue shirt with a shiny gold tie. He'd gone to the extra effort to make sure it fit nicely, and had just a little padding on the shoulders and chest so that he looked a little less wimpy.
    Today at 2:15 PM​
  • AnxiousEnby AnxiousEnby :
    Francis did notice that it was quiet...too quiet as he sat in the seat. He would look down at his phone, scrolling though social media as he waited patiently for his order to be brought to him. The teen would end up pretty interested in the theme of tonight, he had come here on coincidence but it seemed like tonight was going to be an exiting one.
    Today at 2:18 PM​
  • bananabread bananabread :
    Rei's eyes scanned the room, seeing Hiro run back to the back room, chuckling a bit at the younger boy's antics. For some reason, though, something felt off—was someone missing? He remembered that one of his co-workers said that he might not be able to make it tonight, but someone else wasn't where she was supposed to be. An old woman who loved seeing her boys all dressed up, who slapped his ass on the way to the kitchen, who employed him here—of course. A tiny frown pulled the corners of his lips down before he smoothed it back into a customer-service smile. He'd look for Fujimoto-san a little later. For now, he had to do his job, which included bringing a young man his order. "Heya, cutie; this is for you, right? Chocolate cake n' sweet tea?"
    Today at 2:21 PM​
  • The Mood is Write The Mood is Write :
    Oh good, the newcomer was being helped! Hiro hurried back to the old, kissy-faced ladies and got a few orders for desserts before he thanked them and headed to the kitchen... It was _so weirdly quiet_. He hadn't been splashed with water, either. Nor made a show of........ Where was Ryuuji? For that matter, he'd not seen either of the Fujimoto ladies. Strange. Still, he concentrated on putting on a smile for the customers. Surely, there would be enough chaos soon enough. There never really was a quiet night here, after all.
    Today at 2:24 PM​
  • Diana Diana :
    All these elder ladies at the card table seemed to be interested in was the attention of handsome young men. One called out "Young men! Young men! Come play a little black jack with a few lonely ladies." They didn't specify which young man. In fact, the four ladies each had their eye on a different one and not all of them actual staff. Yikes!
    Today at 2:26 PM​
  • AnxiousEnby AnxiousEnby :
    Francis would look up when he heard a voice, his face flushing at the compliment "ah yes! Thank you" he would say sweetly, smiling. The purple haired teen would scratch at his neck "I believe I saw you before" he would mutter before blinking, gasping in surprise "You gave me snacks last time before I left for the night". However, the calls of the elderly woman would startle Francis, him looking over and gulping. How would he decline this?! He was bad with strangers after all.
    Today at 2:27 PM​
  • The Mood is Write The Mood is Write :
    One of the ladies even seemed to be looking at two 'young men' simultaneously. Oh dear. Still, he smiled and obeyed, heading over. "I-I haven't played b... before," he fibbed with a sheepish smile. "I'm willing to learn, th... though...?"
    Today at 2:29 PM​
  • bananabread bananabread :
    "That's right," Rei replied with a small chuckle to the young man, setting down his order. He took a glance to the older women before returning his attention to the patron in front of him. "Don't worry about them, okay? Just relax. I'll take care of you."
    Today at 2:30 PM​
  • AnxiousEnby AnxiousEnby :
    The male would smile shyly "Ah....thank you, I don't do too well with strangers" he muttered but loud enough for only Rei to hear. Francis would start to eat the cake, loving the taste as he licked his lips "this is so good" he said like a small child, swaying his legs.
    Today at 2:32 PM​
  • Diana Diana :
    Having at least one volunteer, the elder ladies try to teach Hiro how to play Blackjack. Nothing seems to be amiss and all is right with the world. But where is old lady Fujimoto?
    Today at 2:36 PM​
  • bananabread bananabread :
    Rei smiled at him. "I'm glad that you're enjoying. Please do let me know if you need anything, okay, cutie?" He looked to the side, watching Hiro entertain the older women. He pursed his lips in concern—where was the most perverted lady of all? He should probably go looking for her. He took a step away from the teen patron. "I'm going to have to go to attend some other matters, but call for Rei or Hiro if you want something. See ya!"
    Today at 2:38 PM​
  • The Mood is Write The Mood is Write :
    Hiro turned out to be pretty good at the game... Better than his words about needing to be taught would have led them to believe. But he at least didn't take their money unless they insisted. He called them all princesses and asked their names, too.
    Today at 2:38 PM​
  • Diana Diana :
    C R A S H! Out of nowhere a brick comes crashing through the front cafe window! It nearly knocks one of the old ladies right in the noggin'. Tied around it with twine is a piece of paper covered in... oh no, is that red stuff BLOOD?
    Today at 2:45 PM​
  • AnxiousEnby AnxiousEnby :
    Francis would continue to eat the cake, his face getting more red as time went on, how would he deal with compliments like this all night?! He waved when Rei moved away, was he going to go looking for that old women that was here last time, she seemed to be very important here. After slipping his headphones on, he would start to listen to my chemical romance again and sipped the tea. He dropped the cup in surprise however when the brick crashed through the window he was next too, wincing when some of the glass hit his face, one scratching his cheek.
    Today at 2:46 PM​
  • bananabread bananabread :
    Rei grimaced, checking on as many people as possible at once. "Are you alright, beauties? You weren't hurt, were you? Does anything hurt?"
    Today at 2:47 PM​
  • The Mood is Write The Mood is Write :
    Hiro pushed the nearest old ladies under the table, then stared at the brick for a long time before he felt his eyes start to roll upward and felt like the table was coming toward him.
    Today at 2:47 PM​
  • bananabread bananabread :
    Rei dashed over to the table, briefly checking on Hiro and the ladies before going over to the brick and picking it up, curious and not nearly as afraid or cautious as he should be. He squinted at the red-soaked paper, trying to discern what was on it.
    Today at 2:49 PM​
  • AnxiousEnby AnxiousEnby :
    Francis would look at the cup that he had dropped on the floor, rushing to grab the napkins and start to clean the mess he had made. However he would continue to wince at the pain in his right cheek. Who the hell would do that?! He tilted his head when he watched Rei go to read the note, listening carefully for anything that caught his interest.
    Today at 2:51 PM​
  • Diana Diana :
    The letter is written in black marker and spelled terribly. "WE GOT YER OLD BAG. BRING ALL YER MONEE OR WE TOSS HER IN THE RIVER. IN PEACES." It seems Fujimoto-sama is being held hostage by some uneducated street thugs! It also completely neglected to state WHERE to bring the money. The idiots.
    Today at 2:51 PM​
  • The Mood is Write The Mood is Write :
    Hiro shoved himself up from the table before he could impact it. He braced himself like that for a moment as he gulped air before he spoke. "Isno blood...?" he asked, eyes wide as he tried not to pass out.
    Today at 2:52 PM​
  • bananabread bananabread :
    Rei sighed, pinching the bridge of his nose as he felt a headache coming on strong. "Don't think so, Hiro. Uh, maybe you should take a seat... you don't look so good." He turned to the violet-haired boy, making his way over to him as he set the brick down. "Hey, you don't need to clean that up. Like I said, just relax. You're all good; let me take care of it." Why did Ryuuji decide to not come to work today? This was probably the worst possible day.
    Today at 2:54 PM​
  • The Mood is Write The Mood is Write :
    "I am sidding," Hiro objected, "Waz thnode say?"
    Today at 2:55 PM​
  • AnxiousEnby AnxiousEnby :
    The teen would sneakily read what was on the note from behind Rei and frowned in annoyance. However when he came over to tell Francis that he didn't need to clean up, he would smile casually "its okay, i dropped it so I should clean it". He would sigh " have you got anything for my cut cheek? The glass shattered pretty close to my face and cut it"
    Today at 2:56 PM​
  • bananabread bananabread :
    "Are you going to faint if I tell you?" Rei held back another sigh, running a hand through his hair and brushing off tiny bits of glass from his waistcoat. "It said something about them having Fujimoto-san and that if we 'don't bring all our monee' they're gonna toss her into a river." He nonchalantly went to the side to grab the first aid kit, taking out an alcohol wipe and a sticky bandage for his cheek. "Here, let me fix you up."
    Today at 2:58 PM​
  • The Mood is Write The Mood is Write :
    Hiro stared, eyes wide, then shoved himself to his feet and hurried to the back room. He came out with his wallet and started toward the door, feet unsteady. "There's only... one river...!"
    Today at 2:59 PM​
  • Diana Diana :
    The elder ladies were in a kerfuffle, but it seems they actually had something useful to say. "I bet it's those rotton warehouse boys again! They robbed my husband last week!" exclaimed one. "They're always running around with their spikey hair and their sneakers jumping out from behind dumpsters." claimed another.
    Today at 2:59 PM​
  • The Mood is Write The Mood is Write :
    Hiro stopped short and nearly fell backwards. "Where?" he asked, blinking, "I'll go get Fujimoto-san... Id'll be ogay." He nodded firmly, and it seemed to rattle his brain some. "It'll be ok," he said, this time sounding more confident, if a bit stammery.
    Today at 3:01 PM​
  • AnxiousEnby AnxiousEnby :
    Francis would flush when Rei started to pull out a first aid kit, allowing him to patch up his injured cheek. He would flinch and whine when the disinfectant stung but allowed him to finish his job. After his cheek had been patched up, he would be sweeping up the broken mug, putting the broken parts in the trash.
    Today at 3:05 PM​
  • bananabread bananabread :
    After patching up his injured patron and thanking him for cleaning up, Rei turned his attention to the ladies. "Really? That sounds concerning. I hope that you and your families are all okay—please stay inside the café for now, and keep away from the windows; also, make sure to stick together. I don't mean to scare you all, and while I don't think any more bricks will come flying through, it's better to be safe than sorry." He went over to Hiro, patting him on the shoulder with a grin. "I like that confidence, Hiro-kun! Let's get Fujimoto-san back. I do hope that Ryuuji or Lars or someone similarly strong sweeps in, though—I've never been in a real fight."
    Today at 3:07 PM​
  • Diana Diana :
    Of all the days for Ryuuji and Lars to not be at work! The elder ladies promise to hold down the fort for Fujimoto's sake, so the boys can all go rescue her! They bid them good luck, and to stay safe, and one even hands Francis a big knife she's been hiding in her purse. They don't seem to understand that Francis doesn't work there. "Save our leader!"
    Today at 3:09 PM​
  • The Mood is Write The Mood is Write :
    "S... same," Hiro said, then laughed. "I have some money, though...! ... Mi-chan, why do you have a knife that b-big...!?" he stared, eyes wide.
    Today at 3:10 PM​
  • bananabread bananabread :
    "Weapons should be good," Rei mused aloud, taking off his suit jacket and rolling up the sleeves of his white button-down shirt. "Lemme get my bat real quick. Hiro-kun, do you need anything from my sports bag, or are you good with your fists?"
    Today at 3:11 PM​
  • AnxiousEnby AnxiousEnby :
    Francis would jump back in surprise when he was handed the knife "I-I um" he would gulp "I don't work here" but sighed and walked over towards the two. He would look at them "I think the old ladies want me to come too, so I guess i should. Having more people is probably better"
    Today at 3:11 PM​
  • The Mood is Write The Mood is Write :
    "I... I'll take the knife," he managed, visibly pale, "A c...customer, even roped in, shouldn't have to... to be scary..." Oh god he felt ready to faint again, but he forced himself to offer his hand out to Francis.
    Today at 3:13 PM​
  • bananabread bananabread :
    Rei grinned. "Great! Now, cutie, just stay behind us, okay? You'll just be there for moral support. You won't have to lift a finger, I promise." With that, he sped over to the back room to dig out his bat, as well as his soccer cleats in exchange for his dress shoes. He stepped back out into the open, giving a little wave to the ladies. "We'll be back soon. Please stay safe, lovelies!"
    Today at 3:15 PM​
  • Diana Diana :
    AND SO THE YOUNG MEN HEADED OUT ONTO THE STREET ON THEIR WAY TO THE WAREHOUSE NEAR THE RIVER. (It was safe to assume the thugs were hanging out in the old haunted, abandoned warehouse, as that is where thugs usually hang.) The streets are quiet and empty due to the chill in the air and the slight misty rain.
    Today at 3:16 PM​
  • The Mood is Write The Mood is Write :
    Hiro's movements were wooden. He was holding a knife. He had a knife in his hand. His thoughts were drowned out entirely by internal screaming.
    Today at 3:17 PM​
  • AnxiousEnby AnxiousEnby :
    The teen would raise an eyebrow at Hiro but carefully handed him the knife, walking behind the two workers. He would be on the lookout for any trouble that could spot but everything seemed to be quiet, what if this was a prank? Francis bit his lip as he walked, his heart thumping in his chest as the anxiety building up each step and it was clearly shown on his worried face.
    Today at 3:17 PM​
  • bananabread bananabread :
    Rei wasn't very concerned for their safety—in his limited experiences with the delinquents at school, the 'tough guys' weren't ever really that tough; they just needed a stern talking-to and maybe a threatening bat swing. He shot a smile at Hiro, who was next to him. "Hey, man, you need to be more fluid. That knife's not gonna do anything if you're all stiff."
    Today at 3:20 PM​
  • The Mood is Write The Mood is Write :
    Hiro immediately began to move stiffer. "I d-don't want it to do anything right now," he defended, unblinking.
    Today at 3:21 PM​
  • Diana Diana :
    Whoooooosh blows the wind. On the empty streets. Too empty, really. For a couple of scared dorks, every shadow must've looked suspiciously dangerous. BANG BANG BANG BANG. A cat leaps off a trash can and causes a domino effect of knocked over trash cans. Whew!
    Today at 3:21 PM​
  • The Mood is Write The Mood is Write :
    Hiro screamed and waved his knife in the direction of the banging.
    Today at 3:22 PM​
  • AnxiousEnby AnxiousEnby :
    Francis would yelp in fear when he heard the trash cans, falling on his ass with a grunt.
    Today at 3:22 PM​
  • bananabread bananabread :
    Rei laughed at bit at his companions' antics, giving the cat a little salute as it went on its way. "Doesn't this feel like an American action flick? Or a Stephen Chow movie? I dunno, it feels cool. And also very tense. Loosen up!"
    Today at 3:24 PM​
  • The Mood is Write The Mood is Write :
    "I-I wouldn... wouldn't know," Hiro admitted as he stared at the tipped trash cans, eyes wide. Slowly, his breathing began to ease, though, as his mind accepted that it was a cat, not a monster.
    Today at 3:25 PM​
  • AnxiousEnby AnxiousEnby :
    He would pout with embarrassment as he fell over in fear for a stupid cat! Francis grumbled as he got up, embarrassed as they continued to walk towards the so called location. Something didn't feel right to the teen and he didn't know what it was, maybe this was a trap?
    Today at 3:26 PM​
  • Diana Diana :
    With the warehouse in sight, they was definitely a suspicious lack of people around. In fact, shouldn't there at least be a look out, or a couple of jerks with bats walking around outside or something? Nope. Just the old, haunted, abandoned warehouse and the sounds of a barking dog out in the distance.
    Today at 3:28 PM​
  • The Mood is Write The Mood is Write :
    "Is... this the right place...?" Hiro asked through chattering teeth.
    Today at 3:29 PM​
  • bananabread bananabread :
    "Wondering who's directing this movie, then; probably Spielberg, 'cause this is pretty sick," Rei grinned, stopping at the sound of a dog. "It must be. I don't know a lot of creepy abandoned warehouses around here."
    Today at 3:30 PM​
  • AnxiousEnby AnxiousEnby :
    Francis would feel his legs trembling when the got closer, the teen biting his cheek because he didnt want to say anything. This to him just felt like a giant trap, what if someone was to get hurt or worse.....die!
    Today at 3:31 PM​
  • Diana Diana :
    As if beckoning them to enter... the big warehouse garage door was wide open. From the outside they could see there was a maze of stacked boxes inside.
    Today at 3:32 PM​
  • The Mood is Write The Mood is Write :
    Hiro stood at the door a moment before he swallowed. "I... I'll go in first. If you see me scream, t-then... it's... n-not safe," he managed, then edged forward slowly, past the open door.
    Today at 3:32 PM​
  • bananabread bananabread :
    Rei called out. "Hey, maybe it's not safe to just go straight in? Especially by yourself?" He ran after Hiro to cover his back.
    Today at 3:33 PM​
  • AnxiousEnby AnxiousEnby :
    Francis would end up getting separated from the two, trembling as he looked around frantically, why did they have to run off! He would bite his lip as he ended up tripping over some boxes, scraping his knee with a yelp.
    Today at 3:34 PM​
  • The Mood is Write The Mood is Write :
    The yelp made Hiro jump and yelp in turn. Some action flick this was!
    Today at 3:37 PM​
  • AnxiousEnby AnxiousEnby :
    Francis heard the yelp from Hiro in the distance, they had to be close to each other!
    Today at 3:39 PM​
  • bananabread bananabread :
    Rei turned his head, curious. "Cutie? Are you okay?"
    Today at 3:39 PM​
  • Diana Diana :
    Screeeeeek. Screeeeeeek. Screeeeeeeek. Three wander inside and it's still eerily quiet. Except for that horrible screeching, that sounds a bit like something metal swinging up above their heads. Francis finds himself laying on the floor surrounded by tipped over boxes of... plushies? Is this a plushie warehouse? Hiro and Rei meanwhile see a weird light flickering down at the end of their row.
    Today at 3:39 PM​
  • The Mood is Write The Mood is Write :
    Hiro shook violently as he made his way toward the light. He was sure he'd pee himself if anything happened at this point.
    Today at 3:42 PM​
  • bananabread bananabread :
    Rei looked up, squinting. What was making that noise? A crane, a claw, an alien probe? He felt like a stuffed animal in a giant claw machine (maybe this was a giant claw machine! That would be so cool!) as he glanced to the side to see the light. He followed Hiro towards it, tightening his grip on his bat.
    Today at 3:42 PM​
  • AnxiousEnby AnxiousEnby :
    Francis would still be trembling as he heard Rei ask if he was okay "I-Im okay, just got startled. I feel like this is a trap" he would speak his mind. He would run a hand through his hair before trying to find the other, his leg hurting from the fall.
    Today at 3:45 PM​
  • The Mood is Write The Mood is Write :
    "TrAp...!?" Hiro's voice crackled.
    Today at 3:48 PM​
  • Diana Diana :
    Rei and Hiro come across.... THE HIDEOUT! Or at least, it should be? There's a TV flickering but muted. A couple of beat old up couches. A mini fridge and some old pizza boxes. Several people were definitely here. And recently, because there's a few boxes of take-out that are still warm! But what's this? Blotches of red are all over an empty chair! What happened here! Meanwhile, Francis hears something shuffling nearby around a corner.
    Today at 3:48 PM​
  • The Mood is Write The Mood is Write :
    "I-is that b-blood...!?" Hiro's head felt light and heavy all at once.
    Today at 3:49 PM​
  • AnxiousEnby AnxiousEnby :
    Francis would hear shuffling and decided to walk towards it like an idiot. He would be ever so curious to find out what it was, maybe it was a person who needed help
    Today at 3:49 PM​
  • bananabread bananabread :
    "It's okay," Rei reassured Hiro, looking around. "It might just be pizza sauce. See those boxes? Thugs can be kinda messy." On that note, he went up to the chair and ran his fingers along the red.
    Today at 3:49 PM​
  • Diana Diana :
    Oh no. Rei discovers that is for real blood and not pizza sauce. Yuck! What have these thugs done with Fujimotosama!
    Today at 3:54 PM​
  • bananabread bananabread :
    "Oof," Rei grumbled, wiping the blood on his shirt. "No, wait, I was wrong. My bad. Let's go look for Fujimoto-san, okay? The quicker, the better."
    Today at 3:55 PM​
  • The Mood is Write The Mood is Write :
    "Oh my god, it's blood," Hiro mumbled before he swayed on his feet. The knife fell from numb fingers.
    Today at 3:56 PM​
  • Diana Diana :
    Francis finds his way through the boxes of plushies to an office. This office is a totally normal, not creepy office, thank goodness. It also happens to be the security office! Francis can now look at all of the security cameras in the old, haunted, abandoned warehouse for something useful!
    Today at 3:57 PM​
  • Zarko Straadi Zarko Straadi :
    Kurenai dragged Nomiki by the wrist, looking over her shoulder to smirk at the shy girl's wide-eyed gaze. "Come on, where's your sense of adventure?" Kurenai said, as she pulled Nomiki into the back room of the warehouse where her crew hung out. "Wassup." That's when she noticed they had a "guest."
    Today at 3:58 PM​
  • bananabread bananabread :
    "Hey, hey, hey," Rei rushed over to Hiro, gripping his shoulders and pulling him over to a couch (which did not have any blood). "It's all good, okay? Do you wanna stop? I can go by myself." He looked to the side, spotting two people. "Oh, uh, hi."
    Today at 3:58 PM​
  • AnxiousEnby AnxiousEnby :
    Francis could hear the knife clash against the floor in the distance, was Hiro okay?! He gulped but continued towards the noise, finding the useful office and looking around. "I found the control room!" he would yell. However as he got closer to the screens, a long black wire would be on the floor. Francis would be tripping over again but this time hitting his head and falling unconscious, cursing just before his vision faded to black.
    Today at 3:59 PM​
  • The Mood is Write The Mood is Write :
    Hiro, still in his suit with the dark shirt and shiny gold tie, stared ahead and tried to catch his breath, to try _not_ to faint. Blood. Blood was awful. It was supposed to be inside, not outside.
    Today at 4:00 PM​
  • Zarko Straadi Zarko Straadi :
    "This is Nomiki. She's here to start her life of crime, isn't that right?" Nomiki paled. Her first instinct was to rush to the woman, but fear held her in place. "Oi, what was that?" Kurenai said.
    Today at 4:01 PM​
  • Diana Diana :
    Kurenai doesn't seem to realize that Hiro and Rei aren't part of the thug crew. CAN THEY PLAY IT OFF or do they reveal they're looking for Fujimotosama!
    Today at 4:02 PM​
  • AnxiousEnby AnxiousEnby :
    When Francis fell, he would hit a button that closed the doors of the warehouse, trapping everyone inside.
    Today at 4:03 PM​
  • bananabread bananabread :
    "Okay, cool," Rei said slowly, carefully keeping his eyes on the two newcomers as he squeezed Hiro's shoulders lightly in comfort. "So do you happen to have any idea where an old lady called Fujimoto Hinata is?"
    Today at 4:03 PM​
  • Diana Diana :
    SCREEEEEEEEE, THUTHOMP. Everyone hears the closing of the warehouse garage doors. Thanks to Francis' clumsiness, the warehouse doors are now locked! It also seems no one heard Francis call out about the security room before he passed out! What a sticky situation.
    Today at 4:06 PM​
  • The Mood is Write The Mood is Write :
    Hiro fainted, but only briefly, and woke confused. He felt like he'd blinked, but his eyes were open the whole time. "What was that sound...?"
    59 minutes ago​
  • bananabread bananabread :
    Rei stiffened, gaze scanning the cardboard-blocked walls as the weight of the situation settled heavy on his shoulders. "...Doors, I think."
    56 minutes ago​
  • Zarko Straadi Zarko Straadi :
    As they got closer and Kurenai saw that the shadowy forms weren't her crew after all--or if they were, they were new. "Old lady?" Kurenai said, eyes narrrowing suspiciously. Then she remembered the boys were talking about doing a hit on some bara cafe, maybe they'd decided to nab the crone that ran the place. "Who are you guys? What's the password?" The gang didn't actually have a password, but if these guys weren't in, they wouldn't know that, would they? "The hell?" she snapped, hearing the garage doors rattle closed.
    55 minutes ago​
  • AnxiousEnby AnxiousEnby :
    Francis would open his eyes and looked around in confusion, what had happened? He would feel an ache in his head, did he hit it? These questions went unanswered of course but simply because he was alone. The teen realised what the hell he had done and gulped, giggling dorkily to himself as he opened the door and turned on all the lights. He would spot and mic and spoke calmly "hey the doors was me...I uh hit my head like an idiot, Sorry"
    54 minutes ago​
  • The Mood is Write The Mood is Write :
    "Not so loud, p-please...?" Hiro looked miserably toward the girls, then stiffened at the booming voice over the mic. "Kamisama don't joke," he pleaded.
    53 minutes ago​
  • Diana Diana :
    Francis hears a strange sound behind him. It sounds like- like... breathing?! There's a storage closet there in the security room. Does he dare open the door and peep inside?
    52 minutes ago​
  • bananabread bananabread :
    Rei frowned, taking in the strange girl's words. "I'm... Rrrrrrrrrryunosuke, and this is... Hitoshi. The password is... um... wait, do gangs even have passwords nowadays? I thought that was a movie myth that was debunked by some yakuza guy or something?" He paused, realizing that he probably openly revealed that he had no knowledge about gangs whatsoever as he looked around. "...And was that Mr. Customer?"
    52 minutes ago​
  • AnxiousEnby AnxiousEnby :
    Francis would turn around when he heard the breathing and shakily turned towards the door. He would aggressively open the door, ready to run away if he needed too.
    51 minutes ago​
  • Diana Diana :
    As soon as Francis opens the door, there is a (manly) SHRIIIIIEEEK OF TERROR! Huddled down in the bottom of the closet is... one of the gang thugs? The guys is tall and beefy, but there's dried blood on his face from what looks like a busted nose and he's horrified. "No! No! Not again Obaasama! I'm good!!"
    49 minutes ago​
  • AnxiousEnby AnxiousEnby :
    Francis would scream but it was a rather girly scream, looking at the sight in front of him "what the heck are you talking about?! Let me get you outta here" he would say frantically. The teen would help him out of his huddled ball
    47 minutes ago​
  • Zarko Straadi Zarko Straadi :
    Kurenai scowled. Whoever these guys were, they didn't belong, and it looked like it was up to her to run them off. Problem was, they looked to be well-built. Probably not cops, unless they were of the Keystone variety, but they still had her outnumbered. She let go of Nomiki, and reached into a pocket to pull out her switchblade. *snick!* The blade snapped into place. "Who the hell are you guys?! Beat it!"
    47 minutes ago​
  • bananabread bananabread :
    Rei thought that he could hear two loud screams for a moment before watching the girl whip out her blade, in which he snatched up his baseball bat and squared his stance. "And where is Fujimoto-san? We're not leaving until she's safe."
    45 minutes ago​
  • Diana Diana :
    "The old lady! She's totally nutters!" explained the tall thug. "Wait a second, you're not one of the guys!" The thug didn't look like he was ready for another fight, though. He just glared at Francis.
    45 minutes ago​
  • The Mood is Write The Mood is Write :
    There was screaming now, and the girl had a knife! And there was blood!
    44 minutes ago​
  • Zarko Straadi Zarko Straadi :
    Nomiki couldn't help but notice how handsome the guys were, but the glint of Kurenai's blade put those thoughts out of her mind. "N-n-no! D-d-d-don't!" she said, reaching for Kurenai, but then one of the guys produced a baseball bat! She let out a strangled yelp.
    43 minutes ago​
  • The Mood is Write The Mood is Write :
    Hiro didn'tk now what to do. His body wouldn't move, and his head swam. He started to try to get up, eyes wide. "N-no, no more... no more blood," he managed.
    42 minutes ago​
  • bananabread bananabread :
    Rei fixed his eyes on the other girl, noticing how frightened she seemed. He looked to Hiro, then back to the girls. "I'm not going to hurt you if you don't hurt us. But we need to know where Fujimoto-san is. She's the reason why we're here."
    41 minutes ago​
  • Zarko Straadi Zarko Straadi :
    Kurenai heard a familiar voice crying out, but his words didn't make sense. Still, the sound of his voice meant that there was more trouble afoot, and her crew were on the receiving end. She switched hands with the blade, then reached back and grabbed Nomiki's arm. "Want a girlfriend?" she said, then yanked Nomiki toward the guy with the bat, sending her stumbling into him. That ought to tangle him up long enough for her to vanish into the shadows until she could find out how many of these guys there were, and what happened to her crew.
    36 minutes ago​
  • Zarko Straadi Zarko Straadi :
    Nomiki squeaked as she collided with Baseball Bat Guy, but then his words reached her, along with the fact that he hadn't decided to clobber her with the bat.
    34 minutes ago​
  • bananabread bananabread :
    "Actually, I'm goo—oof," Rei grunted as Nomiki stumbled into him, quickly moving his bat out of the way so that he didn't accidentally bonk her. He turned his attention back to the other girl, but she was already gone. "Aw, come on!" He looked down at Nomiki, dropping his bat and carefully using both hands to move her off of him. "...Your friend isn't very nice, miss."
    33 minutes ago​
  • Diana Diana :
    The thug in the security room grabs Francis by the collar and DRAGS him along out to the warehouse. He and Francis arrive to see the weird scene with Nomiki, but the thug doesn't make comment on that. Instead, he shouts at all of the dudes. "LOOK, the old lady isn't even here anymore, okay!? I don't know how, but she convinced Daisuke and the gang to take her shopping! So get out of here, alright! We don't need any more trouble!"
    32 minutes ago​
  • The Mood is Write The Mood is Write :
    Hiro, sans knife, started after Kurenai on unsteady feet, but stopped as he heard the thug and slowly looked back.
    32 minutes ago​
  • The Mood is Write The Mood is Write :
    "What?" he asked as he stared, still unsteady on his feet.
    31 minutes ago​
  • AnxiousEnby AnxiousEnby :
    Francis didnt even know what the heck was happening, next thing he knew was that he was outside the security room. He would gasp when he was told that the lady was gone shopping, how did that happen!
    31 minutes ago​
  • Zarko Straadi Zarko Straadi :
    "S-s-sss-orry, I d-d-duh-don't kn-know any-anything," Nomiki said. "A-about th-the lady." Tears broke loose and started to run down her cheeks. Her stutter made it hard enough to deal with the jerks at school; being in the middle of a gang fight made it even worse.
    30 minutes ago​
  • Diana Diana :
    "She's not here! We take it all back, okay!? We don't want her! Just go back to your dumb cafe!" He huffs, shoving poor Francis towards his friends. "And if you see Daisuke and the rest of the gang, tell him he sucks dicks!"
    30 minutes ago​
  • bananabread bananabread :
    "Wait, really?" Rei frowned, looking to the thug. "Well, actually, that sort of makes sense. Fujimoto-san is a pretty hardcore lad—oh my god, miss, please don't cry." He turned his attention back to Nomiki, his hands splayed out. "It's not your fault. Please stop crying, it's all okay."
    29 minutes ago​
  • AnxiousEnby AnxiousEnby :
    He would get a bit annoyed, scoffing as he landed on top of Rei. The teen blushed and quickly got off of him and ended up walking outside of the warehouse to blow off some steam. Francis found himself embarrassed and upset.
    28 minutes ago​
  • The Mood is Write The Mood is Write :
    Hiro returned, then looked around before he stumbled over to Nomiki. "It's alright, it's alright," he assured, then pulled out his pocket square and offered it to her. "Here, we a... aren't going to hurt you," he managed. She looked like how he felt.
    26 minutes ago​
  • Zarko Straadi Zarko Straadi :
    "I'm--I'm n-not in th-th-their gang. She..." Words were even more hard to come by now that the guy--who had turned out to be really handsome up close--was being nice to her, and then another cute guy with a slender build came up and offered her a handkerchief.
    24 minutes ago​
  • bananabread bananabread :
    "We understand," Rei reassured her with a smile, patting her lightly on the shoulder. "Do you want to go back to the cafe with us? We can make you some coffee and heat up a pastry for you."
    22 minutes ago​
  • AnxiousEnby AnxiousEnby :
    Francis ended up sobbing outside in utter confusion, what was wrong with him? He turned around and decided to go back to the cafe on his own.
    22 minutes ago​
  • The Mood is Write The Mood is Write :
    Hiro forced a smile. "W-why don't you c-come to the cafe after we g... get everything sorted out?" he asked, "I-I'll... I'll treat you to a drink." He hoped that would cheer her up. He said it at the exact moment as Rei made a similar offer, and his smile faltered as agonizing embarrassment filled his everything.
    22 minutes ago​
  • Diana Diana :
    Low and behold, just as the thug claimed, Fujimotosama was safe and sound. She was back at the cafe, chatting with her old lady crew. Her new thugly friends were no where in sight, but she did have a few shopping bags at her feet and seemed perfectly content with her day.
    18 minutes ago​
  • Zarko Straadi Zarko Straadi :
    Nomiki is a small, slender girl with long black hair and an earth-tone Mori dress and jacket. "C-cafe? O-okay?" Did the slender guy also have a stutter? Her heart skipped a beat, and she hoped he didn't see the flush coming to her cheeks. "But we s-should find y-y-your lady f-first?" Nomiki got the impression that the lady had gotten the better of her kidnappers. Maybe she knew some combat cane technique?
    18 minutes ago​
  • The Mood is Write The Mood is Write :
    "R-right...!" He nodded quickly, his own cheeks red, and offered a hand before he looked for Rei, and realized someone was missing.... "W-where's... where's Customer-san?"
    16 minutes ago​
  • bananabread bananabread :
    "She'll be fine, if that thug's state is any indication," Rei grinned, patting Hiro on the shoulder. He looked outside, searching for the cute customer from before. "We should be heading back. I'll go first and find Customer-san and tell the remaining customers about whatever. Be careful, you two!" With that, he sprinted back (but not before picking up his bat first).
    16 minutes ago​
  • AnxiousEnby AnxiousEnby :
    Francis would sit outside the Cafe, slumping against the wall in obvious distress.
    15 minutes ago​
  • The Mood is Write The Mood is Write :
    "Ah, I... need to return Mi-chan's kn... knife..." He remembered, paling quickly.
    15 minutes ago​
  • The Mood is Write The Mood is Write :
    Hiro bent and picked up the knife, only to almost drop it again. He hated knives.
    14 minutes ago​
  • Zarko Straadi Zarko Straadi :
    Nomiki wiped her tears with the kerchief. This adventure was suddenly becoming decidedly more pleasant, or at least it would once they were away from this creepy warehouse. "I'm So-so-sssoji-moto No-nomiki," she stammered.
    10 minutes ago​
  • The Mood is Write The Mood is Write :
    After that, Hiro unsteadily led Nomiki out and toward the cafe. "N-Nakadashi Hiro," he offered with a nod and a nervous smile. Once they arrived, he handed the knife back to Mi-chan. "P-please leave your knife w-with an employee n-next... next time you bring it," he urged, "It's n-not safe... for it not to h-have a sheath... M-my heart would... it would break if you or anyone else got h... hurt..."
    8 minutes ago​
  • bananabread bananabread :
    Rei returned to the cafe safely, spotting the customer from before and offering him a small, soft smile. "Oh, hey. Great work back there! Thank you so much for your help, cutie; you were fantastic. Is there anything I can do for you?"
    8 minutes ago​
  • AnxiousEnby AnxiousEnby :
    He would look up at Rei with flushed cheeks, wiping his damn eyes before saying what he had to say "I-I think ... no, I um" he would stutter "I like you!" hey yelled before covering his red face, how could he announce something like that.
    7 minutes ago​
  • Diana Diana :
    And thus another classic evening at the Macho Cafe is over. Miss Fujimotosama is safe and sound (with mutterings that soon they'll have a few new employees?!). The dumbest of the Cafe Crew (almost) saved the day! The guests are all happy (except poor Francis who just blurted out something shocking) And there is only a broken front window to worry about. (Good luck explaining that.)

AND WHOMEVER ELSE I MISSED TAGGING BECAUSE I CAN'T REMEMBER WHO ELSE SHOWED UP >:[


I was talking with Oz about his disappointment in missing today's charp and we had some thoughts! Would you be interested in a "Between Charps" roleplay thread on the forums, where you can continue developing characters and story from the last charp in more details until the next event? With the potential of us continuing Macho Cafe as a long term series roleplay rotating between our Charp events and then forum rping while you wait for the next one? Is this a thiiiing you guys might want to try out? It would of course be optional for participation, you could easily only play in one and not the other. The Charp would basically be the start of new days/chapters.

TELL ME NOW. O:

Thanks! I would be interested.

And given that I'm going to be physically back at the office fulltime again soon, and I'll usually be unavailable during typical chat rp times because of it, I'm especially interested.
