"Who sounds most appealing?"

"I'm beginning to think I have underthought the nature of this club."

Permalink

"Appealing in what capacity?"

Permalink

"An hour or two of polite flirting and pleasant conversation of course. This is Ouran High School."

Permalink

"Uh-huh. Do you not perform this noble office? You just take attendance?"

Permalink

"I do, sometimes."

He glances at a few girls huddled together at one of the tables. They've been sneaking glances at him. One of them blushes. Two of them whisper excitedly at each other.

"...and you, what, control the supply to make yourself more interesting?"

Permalink

"Some girls like the mysterious type."

Permalink

"You're not mysterious, you're artificially scarce."

Permalink

"To our guests, it amounts to the same thing."

Permalink

She snorts. "Enjoy your mysterious manipulations of the attention market." She goes and wanders over to the least populated section of club first.

There's a table in the corner, where a few girls are chatting to each other softly and not paying much attention to the hosts. 

When she goes to join them their conversation will pause and they'll look up, slightly wary and slightly hostile.

Permalink

"Am I interrupting?"

Permalink

"Yes," one of the girls says emphatically. 

"Aren't you the commoner?" another one asks,  "Mariko Swan?"

Permalink

"Nicely pronounced, yes."

Permalink

The girls exchange glances.

"Isn't she?"

"Yeah."

"Sit down if you want," says the girl who knew Mariko's name. 

"We're trying to figure out what they did to the tea today."

Permalink

She sits. "They do different things to it?"

Permalink

"Make it stay warmer for longer, mostly, or make the flavors more pronounced."

"But sometimes they change the flavor entirely," another girl says. She shakes her head. "It makes it so hard to get your own if you like it."

Permalink

Mariko gets herself a cup of tea.

Permalink

There are faint traces of harmonic magic in it.

It is sweet and a little tangy and tastes of blueberry.

Permalink

"I think it's the sweetness," one of the girls says. "They put in a little sugar and drew on that maybe?"

Permalink

"Is the package around somewhere to check or is that cheating?"

Permalink

"I'll ask Tamaki, unless one of you has a better guess."

Everyone shakes their heads.
