A steady supply of tomorrow.

<Eiji is wandering around a fairly commercial neighborhood, peering at houses and their nameplates>
"Man if everything's free, why do I still have to buy underwear?>
*Eh nook gihtz lunchde awn de houzous*
*The sound of small pawsteps comes from behind Eiji. Their owner pants happily.*
*Suddenly in the sky, Takeshi Hongo flies by on his motorcycle! He deflects the nukes back the one who sent them!*
YOU ARE NOT FRIEND OF JUSTICE!
<Eiji looks around confused, then down behind him>
"Oh a dog! Where's your owner? J-just a minute... are dogs allowed here?"
*The shibe runs around in a circle, then sits down. Peeking out from his orange jacket is an odd collar.*
<Eiji kneels down to pet the dog, as he does so checking the tag>
"You must be a long way from home, just like me!"
<Eiji mumbles to himself>
"Whoever your owner is, they must be worried sick."
*The tag says "Koromaru," as well as an address. However. The strange collar is clearly not normal. Maybe it's decoration, like the jacket's wings, or something else.*
*Koromaru wags his tail and rubs his head against Eiji's hand*
*Pops out of nearest sewer* Hey look! Homeless dude! Want some whiskey?
<Eiji reads the address over and over, but can't make sense of it>
"I guess you're lost just like I am, little guy!"
<Eiji stands up, hands on his thighs in a playful manner>
"Well, nobody would want to have their dog lost for TOO long! I'm sure if we searched together we'd find your owner in no time!"
*Koromaru gets to his feet and runs in a circle around Eiji. He pauses for a moment to sniff the strange rat*
<Eiji holds his hands up in a manner indicating no>
"Sorry, I d-don't really drink!"
*With a huff, Koromaru pads away from the rat. He sniffs the air for a moment and begins walking along the sidewalk. He appears to have a set destination in mind*
<Eiji watches as Koromaru begins to wander off>
"I think he might be going home! I should be finding a place to call home while I'm here..."
<Eiji stands there, lost in thought, for a few seconds before he pops back to his senses>
<Eiji runs after Koromaru>
*Koromaru slows down to let the human catch up. After a few turns and some walking, the duo eventually comes across a dorm. The dog sits down in front of it.*
*He stands up and keeps walking.*
<Eiji stops a moment to look at the dorm, shortly he is once again caught thinking, and is left behind>
*Koromaru lets out an amused huff. He speeds up a little as he approaches the entrance to a certain shrine. A few passerby greet him.*
*He greets them back and enters the shrine area.*
<Eiji wanders into the shrine following Koromaru>
"Ah! So this must be your home!"
<Eiji looks around, inspecting the place>
"Amazing! I've visited lots of shrines in my travels, but none were like this!"
*Koromaru wags his tail at the praise. He looks over at the shrine itself and, satisfied that everything is in order, chases a leaf over to the playground area*
"Well this looks like your home! I need to find myself a free house here myself! Parks are nice and all but it's getting cold at night."
<Eiji wanders back to the district he originally came from>
"One of these should be similar..."
