Re: NL the Anime
Shino’s voice still had Lily jumping. “It’s a rabbit, of course I can’t understand him.” She put her hands on her hips and stomped past him. “What kind of stupid question is that, Shino?”
As Lily continued to walk, she felt Roots run across her shoulders. He plopped down into her arms. “Hey, will you calm down?” she hissed.
“I can’t. He’s so close.”
Lily looked over her shoulder to see Shino following them. “He’s got to be about fifteen yards away.”
“God, that still is to close. You got to shake him, Lily.”
Lily ducked into an alley and ran down it until she reached the street at the end. “Is that better?” she asked, looking around. Roots nodded as she walked up the sidewalk of The Forum. She glanced over her shoulder to see an empty street and path. Roots settled in her arms as she reached the door. "The Forum is big, I'm sure there are empty rooms for us to chat in."
Roots remained silent as they entered the building. Other then a few people desperate for conversation, The Forum was pretty much empty. A small light brown haired boy ran up to Lily. "Oh wow! Look at how kawaii that bunny looks!" His bright red eyes shun in enjoyment as he scratched behind Root's ears. "Wow, he's so soft."
“Lily!” called Sakura running up to her. Lily looked over her shoulder and waved.
“Hey Sakura, you’re looking much bette…”
“Roots!” Sakura cooed as she scooped up the rabbit on Lily’s shoulder and cuddled him. “I’ve missed you so much. Don’t worry; you’ll be able to head home soon. Oh Lily,” Sakura looked at Lily as if she was just acknowledging her. “I have a surprise for you. Come on.” Sakura grabbed Lily’s hand and began to lead her away from the girl and around the corner. Sakura pulled Lily into the Spam Zone and down along the wall.
Lily waved at the passing people starring at them. “What’s the big surprise Sakura?”
“Here! Here! Look, Lily.” Sakura cried, jumping up and down and pointing to a door with a hazy window on it. Across the letters in big, black thick letters, was the name “Dr. Lily” written across the window. “I asked Daisuke if I could use an empty storage room and he said it was fine. What do you think?”
“Err….what am I suppose to think exactly?”
Sakura calmed down and stared at her feet. “You helped me out so much yesterday, Lily. Not just your actions, but your words as well. I figured, since you’re so good at helping people then maybe you’d like to start a small business with it. If you don’t want to, I can take it down and…”
Lily threw her arms around Sakura into a hug to shush her. “No, I love the idea. But there’s no way I can do it alone.” Lily put her index finger to her lips and thought for a moment. “It’s decided, I’m going to need an assistant. Sakura, I’m going to put you in charge of that job.”
Lily smiled and nodded. “You bet. Every good doctor needs an even better assistant, and you’re just the kind of person I’m looking for. Are you good with advertising?”
Sakura returned the excited smile and nodded. “You bet I am. I’ll attract so many customers you won’t even have time to handle them all!”
“Lets not go that far, ok? Our goal here at the Dr. Lily Thread is to help others and try not to turn anyone away.”
Sakura stood straight and saluted Lily. “I’ll do my best. You go into your office and get settled while I go bring in the first round of customers.” Lily saluted her back and Sakura ran off down the Spam Zone.
Lily stared up at the door, her name written in those thick black letters. It was a title, it was a job and it was a perfect start. She opened the door and stepped inside. “Wow,” said Lily looking around the tiny, storage closet. “When she said a spare closet, I didn’t think it would be this small.” She looked around and noted a small wood desk, a big chair in the back and two smaller chairs in front. Lily had to jump over the desk to get to the big, rotating chair in the back.
As she planted herself on the seat a knock was heard at her door. “Come on,” she called, feeling the sudden jolt of excitement by saying that.
Sakura’s pink head popped through the doorway. “I found your first customer.” She opened the door further to show a small red-headed boy about her height and the Japanese symbol for ‘power’ above his left eye.
“Hey, I remember you from the other day!” exclaimed Lily, standing up.
The boy slid his hands into his pockets and rocked back and forth on his heels. “My name’s Gemakai, by the way,” he blushed slightly.
Lily made a futile attempt at sneaking around her desk to shake his hand and in the end, just decided to jump over her desk. She shook his hand. “Nice to meet you Gemakai, I’m Lily. Dr. Lily,” she finished with a wink.
Sakura waved goodbye and closed the door. Only a small, dimmed light bulb lighted the room. Gemakai looked around, nervous. Lily, not letting go of his hand pulled him toward the door. “It’s far to stuffy in here to do any real work. Lets head outside shall we?”
“It’s not going to charge me extra is it?” he joked.
Lily pulled him over to a nearby table and sat him down. A few people turned and watched idly by. “So tell me,” said Lily resting her chin on her joined hands. “What brings you to my office?”
“The pink headed girl, I think Sakura was her name, told me that I looked depressed and needed guidance from you.” He shrugged. “When I saw the door I was a little skeptic, I mean how can you help me with anything when you don’t know me?”
“Hmm….that’s a good thought.” Lily leaned back in her chair and starred up at the ceiling. “Sometimes, the best advice comes from those you don’t know, or I should say don’t know you. That way, you can always get an honest answer.”
Gemakai shrugged. “I suppose so.”
Lily smirked. “She ringed me into this too, so don’t feel to weird about it.” She leaned forward and stared him straight in the eye. “But on a serious note, tell me what’s up? No one’s life is completely perfect. We all need help from someone else once in a while right?”
Gemakai scratched under his chin. “I suppose I could give you a trial run. Ok, here’s one for you. My friend and I are having an argument over this girl let’s call her Rachel. So Rachel likes me but doesn’t like him, but he likes her and I have no feelings for her. So what should we do?”
Lily took a deep breath. “It’s obvious isn’t it? Because he is your friend, your best bet is to stay away from her. If she can’t accept the fact that friendship means more to you then anything else then she obviously doesn’t deserve your love. You also need to tell your friend the low-down on things so nothing can come between you. How was that?”
Gemakai nodded approvingly. “It was good. I think I might actually follow that. Thanks.”
“Ummm….Dr. Lily.” Lily turned to see the boy from before. “My name's Coconaught and I have a problem.” He said sitting down.
Lily turned her attention to Coconaught. “Ok, shoot.”
“I really love animals, but both of my parents are allergic to most animals. And I don’t want furless animals so what should I do?”
“Is that all? Well you don’t really have much choices do you? Are you afraid of snakes or other forms of reptiles, or maybe spiders?”
“My mom would never go for anything with scales and I hate spiders.”
“Hmm…this is a tough one. What about fish?”
“I want to cuddle them, a fish would die to easily.”
“Dad says they both carry diseases.”
“Wow, they’ve thought of everything huh?”
Coconaught nodded. Lily eyed Gemakai, he watched her, studied her reactions. It reminded Lily of taking a test back at school. “It’s not fair.” Coconaught slammed his fists on the table.
“Hey, Gemakai. Does NL have petting zoos?” asked Lily, deep in thought.
