Shigure is the dog of the zodiac and the owner of the house where he, Tohru, Yuki and Kyo live. He is a writer who writes both academic books and romance novels under many pen names. His most common and celebrated is "Karitani Noa" from his erotic "Summer-Colored Sky" novel.

He loves to drink tea, eat takoyaki, drive his editor, whom he affectionately calls "Miichan", to tears by feigning the non-completion of his work, sleep late, and smoke cigarettes.

He's a jokester who occasionally gives advice or purposely stirs up controversy for the good of everyone in the end.

taking it upon herself

Is it me or is Tohru-kun always tired these past couple of weeks? I asked her how come, and she said that she's signed up for more hours. I told her that if she needs money, she could just ask me what she needs, but then she panicked. I don't know why she had to turn me down, but I am her guardian after all. She doesn't need to be reserved. Tohru's been with us for so long, it's only proper to take care of her.

I also noticed that she's been hanging the clothes out to dry outside. It's been quiet these days when I'm home too -- like I feel that there's something missing. So I decided to talk to Tohru-kun again and found out that the dryer couldn't be fixed anymore and that it should be replaced. If I know Tohru-kun, I think I have an idea why she signed up for more hours. I'll make some calls tonight.

I maybe onto something

Don't get me wrong, I like the feeling of staring at the monitor, because it means that I'm back to the good ol' days of working regularly. Don't you know that when you're writing a novel, you're bound to run on a mental block however good you think you are? So yes, right now, I'm having a mental block. And it feels good. I'm back. I try not to worry about Akito. As long as she eats, she breathes and feels, as long as she looks at me, it's fine. She's alive and I am as well.

I just can't seem to figure out what I'm missing for my current novel. I read it all over again and the whole thing looks like it was halfheartedly done. But I don't know anything I could add that would make it more interesting. Drama is hard. I tap my finger on my table whether I should scrap the whole thing. Miitsuru will go ape gaga and kill me.

Hmm... what if I made the heroine a mute?

waiting for wednesday

Even though that July's almost at an end and that we're on the eighth month of the year, I'm fine about Akito undergoing a phase of silence. She's still not talking to anyone, but she speaks with her eyes instead. I'm okay with that. Which is why I've decided to go back to writing. That should also silence Miitsuru. She's been starting to nag me recently.

I was away from my pen for many months. I don't know how exactly I'd pick up my current project. But I've  made so much progress to just dump this title. Hmm... I think this is a helpful situation too. It makes my story unpredictable, so I'm bound to give a dilemma hurdle to my main character.

Kyo's told me that he's going to be traveling this August. That boy. I don't know how exactly he's been able to save, but Kazuma will be proud if he's heard that Kyo's finally become somewhat independent. I doubt he'd ask money from me too. Kyo's is too proud and stubborn to ask. I just hope he'll be careful and nothing 'weird' happens on his trip.

everything's going to be fine

Who would've thought that a quiet time with Akito would finally put me back into my senses? She never said  a word. Yes, until now she doesn't speak to anyone. But I was finally back into place after today. After I've told Akito how I feel, how miserable I am without hearing her voice, after I've laid out everything to her, I feel lighter inside. And then she placed her hand over mine with a smile; my life started to calm down. I feel like she's still Akito. Whatever may be her reason for not saying a word, I know that she's still the same Akito that I know. I feel like everything is going to be all right.

I'm not giving up.

What do we do when the electricity goes out? Do we cease to exist when there's no electricity? We take for granted the value of nothingness, an opportunity to stop. We concentrate on work and business that we forget we ignore about peace and quiet. I'm tired of all this noise from technology. I'm tired of staying connected and keeping connected. When did we start getting stressed from the noise of technology?

I tried spending a day of nothingness, a day without TV, a day without the radio, a day without a cellphone, a day away from noise; it felt really unusual when I spent my time outside while being disconnected from everything. I wonder if I could call it escapism. It felt great.

Boredom prevails when we believe that work is our drive in life. Work is not all the time. And I believe we shouldn't rely on electricity 24/7. We have this faulty belief that work is important. I am restless for magical moments. I am tired. I am bored.

I need to keep going. I know that life may not be the party that we hoped for. But while we're here, we might as well dance. I need to keep going and I know that I should only stop when the work is finished. There's still hope. I mean every breath is a second chance.
