Kehau: I know these are three characters, but I'd love some good ol' Sozui, Kureno, and Asuka hijinks~ Or you can pick any one or two of those three. If you need a prompt: formal attire.
Sozui considered himself if not a patient man, then a reasonably smart one. He wasn't Kureno, but he could puzzle out things pretty well.
Unless it involved clothes, anyway. Fancy, schmancy-- Who the hell wore
these monkey suits!? Shit, why were they even required??
He was getting desperate. Desperate enough to almost ask Joji for advice. But the ninken held the same puzzlements about human clothing as his human partner.
That left only one solution: Kureno.
Sozui rolled up the mass of clothes like one would a bedroll, then as an afterthought shoved it into a bag (with the matching shiny shoes) before making a mad dash out of his apartment. Joji followed easily, and for once wasn't adding commentary.
Once he reached his destination, Sozui banged hard and continuously on the door. "KURE!" he shouted. "C'mon, man, I c'n smell
ya in there! Open up!" He banged more.
The door finally opened to reveal an annoyed-smelling (and -looking) Kureno who was already mostly dressed in the fancy clothes and looking perfect as ever. It was patently unfair that Kureno could make looking fancy look so easy. Then again, it was the reason Sozui sought him out.
"...Sozui, the event starts in twenty and have you even showered?
" Kureno wanted to know.
Panic filled him. "I haveta shower?
" Sozui (manfully) squeaked.
Kureno blinked rapidly at him. "Haven't you ever had to dress up for a clan function?" he asked as he motioned for Sozui and Joji to enter.
"Plenty a' times," Sozui answered, clutching the bag to his chest and feeling so
lost. "They don' really like it iff'n I jes' wear a loincloth fer th' 'mportant stuff." Keen ears picked up the faint sigh from the other. Sozui felt tears start to gather. "Kureno, please
, I don't get any of this! Why's I gotta wear this stuff? Why ain't my normal around-th'-village clothes okay??"
"Because Sensei's getting married and people dress up for the occasion."
" Sozui complained. "Weddin's are s'pposed t'be fun!
You can't have fun wearin' all this stuff! An' why's I gotta shower??"
Kureno sighed again. "Just trust me, Sozui," he said gently as he gave the Inuzuka's shoulder a friendly squeeze. "That's why you came, right?"
"Right. Now, here's what we'll do..."
