Shige is the ringleader of a gang known throughout Tokyo's undergrounds. The gang, Lucifer's Reckoning, is well known for its distribution of drugs in the area. Shige currently attends Gakuin High with his sister, Yui Sakurai (lj user: barrendreams). Although older than his sister, Shige is currently in the same grade as her because he had chosen not to go to high school at all until he was given it as an alternative option when in trouble with the police.

December 25 )( Sunday )( Late Evening [22 Jul 2013|11:26pm]
[ mood | lonely ]

Silence pulsated throughout the Sakurai home. Shige's parents were away on a trip, and his sister Yui was at her girlfriend's house (Shige's description for Hikaru). Most days like this, Shige would have filled the house with his friends: drinking, smoking, and injecting drugs into their veins. On the days Shige wasn't out breaching the streets for information, his house was like this, which is probably the real reason Yui chose not to come home much during break. All the more reason to party, as Shige saw it. Otherwise, he'd be sitting at home alone, like today.

This morning, some of the guys had come over, and Shige had indulged in their drinks. He sent them home early though. He had business to attend to, and just because it was Christmas didn't mean work would take a break too (though he wished Rei wasn't busy doing family things so that he could be there keeping him company). For one, there was a short in the money for sales. Someone was either selling product under price (usually to themselves) or taking from the money pool. His bookkeepers were too preoccupied (i.e., high for the holidays) to bother looking in to it. Then there was also initiation coming up. New guys that wanted to join Lucifer's Reckoning had to be initiated. It was trivial, but it did help build loyalty and dedication, so it became tradition. They wouldn't be initiated until after the new year, but Shige was prepping now since he was mostly sober, aside from the Sapporo keeping him focused. He scribbled the names of the potential new members in a ledger book that could get a lot of people into huge trouble if it ever ended up in the hands of authority. It would burn before that ever happened, Shige would guarantee it.

A pain in his stomach made him realize that he hadn't had a proper meal all day. Scavenging through the cabinets only proved that his friends and him had pretty much ransacked the place the past few days. He cursed the name of his friend that was never without food in his hand before glancing at the time. It was no use. This time of night on Christmas, nothing would be open. Instead he grabbed the only thing he had: another beer. He popped the cap off effortlessly, knowing full well that he'd pay for it tomorrow.

December 15 )( Thursday )( During Homeroom [06 Jul 2009|04:03pm]
[ mood | predatory ]

The bell signifying the beginning of class had just begun to go off as Shige walked onto school property. He had taken a detour to work, scoping out the area he often visited ever since Rei had been attacked only a few days before. Already information was pouring in; he had been investigating everyone that was involved with, including druggies. Speeches slurred, druggies were the easiest to milk for information.

Still, gathering information was going slower than Shige had hoped. Something was brewing, and for once, Shige was not on top, well informed. He was oblivious, lost in the dark, and searching desperately for answers. He wouldn’t have shown up to school at all if it wasn’t something he was being forced to do by the big guys. Besides, with the Naka Baka being released on Monday, he would look like a coward to not show up.

Since the paper that slandered Shige’s name had been passed out to the school population last Monday, Shige noticed a definite change in attitude among his peers. Some of the quiet girls that never gave Shige a second look, now watched him with fear edging their eyes. Some of the tough boys tired to challenge him to a fight, trying to prove their brawns. They never followed through with their threats however. One look from Shige succeeded in shutting them up. He had much more important things to deal with. The Nakamura’s would see his wrath in due time.

Homeroom was already in process. After changing his shoes, Shige headed for the school’s roof. He didn’t feel like causing a scene by showing up late to his class.

December 13 )( Tuesday )( After Midnight [07 Apr 2009|02:39pm]
[ mood | restless ]


The sky was dark, but the lights of Tokyo illuminated the night. Even as the hours entered into the new day, the night life did not break. People lined the streets and laughter and talk filled the air. The busyness and urgency that Tokyo was known for had been set aside as leisure time had taken its place. Shige, however, was not there for fun.

He walked briskly, his trench coat fluttering behind him allowing the cold night’s air to plague him. The cold didn’t seem to bother him as he continued towards his destination. He kept his head straight, but every patron he passed on the sidewalk, his eyes flashed towards them, taking in their appearance and looking for familiarity. It was a long shot, but he couldn’t ignore the possibility that they had went out for a drink afterwards.

It started during his and Andrea’s date. A mysterious man who darted whenever Shige came across from him had been in the area around Andrea’s apartment. The territory did not belong to Lucifer’s Reckoning, but Shige’s turf was not too far away. He had completed his own investigation of the area, but found nothing that could lead him to answers. Answers were what he needed more than anything now.

Only a few hours earlier, Shige’s right hand man, Rei Sanjo, had been attacked. Two guys had overpowered his friend, and luckily Shige had come across the beating just in time to intercede. Unfortunately, the two guys had bolted before Shige could get his hands on one of them to get them talking. One of the guys happened to be the same guy Shige had been continuously running into lately, the same one from the apartments.

Shige was winding through the alleys now. Fences and junk debris didn’t slow his pace as he effortlessly climbed and jumped over them. Blood spattered on the ground indicated that he had arrived back on the scene. He stopped and looked down, yet his eyes darted around at his surroundings and his ears picked up the smallest of sounds. Someone was coming.

Around the same corner that he had rounded earlier that a day, a man appeared. He had his coat drawn up tightly around him and was blowing into his hands to warm them. Shige acted immediately, lunging out and grasping the man’s coat, twisting it into a strong grip. The man’s hands went to Shige’s wrist as he tried to get Shige to let go. The man was taller, but Shige had his rage on his side. He pulled the man closer and peered into the man’s face. There was no familiarity. With one shove, he had let go of the man, much to the man’s surprise, and had already continued on his way. He should have known that they would not have returned. It had been hours since the attack. The best he could do now would be to survey the area and see what surrounding gangs could say.

November 21 )( Monday )( After School [14 Jun 2008|12:18am]
[ mood | curious ]

The first day back after the festival was probably the longest day of school Shige had to experience. The day drew on without anything particularly notable happening. Even baseball practice was dull, the chilliness in the air the only thing moving the clock forward.

During practice, Shige received a text message, which he checked, turning away from the field to keep the coach from seeing. The text was written in code which Shige had no problem reading (see Sai's post). Basically, Kazuya was hanging with some chick named Yumeki Sumara. Shige laughed to himself as he shut the phone. He would have to check her out for himself.

Shige was leaving the locker room after practice when he saw Kazuya at the school gate with a girl. 'That must be her' he thought to himself. Instead of walking closer to get a better look, Shige stopped and waited. He watched the two as they left together, and without another thought, he followed, pulling the hood of his jacket over his head and putting on his sunglasses for the diminishing light.

He trailed from afar, not wanting to be noticed. As a result, he was out of voice range. He did find their body language odd, he had expected that Kazuya would be all over a girl for a booty call. But if it was just an ordinary one-nighter, Sai wouldn't have brought it to Shige's attention.

Shige stopped outside the pastry shop they went into. He stayed nearby the door, blending in with the crowds of people traveling through the area. When they left the building, Shige had to smile because they didn't even look in his direction. He continued trailing them, curious to see what this girl meant to Kazuya. If the Nakamaru twin had obtained a girlfriend...well that was all the better for Shige.

He boarded the same bus with them, and followed the flow of the crowd to the back of the bus. He waited until they had already stepped off the bus before getting off himself. When he stepped off the bus, he pulled the glasses from his face as the sun was now hidden by the horizon and the sky splashed with deep pinks and oranges. He watched the two enter the arcade and considered whether or not to follow them inside. The large stream of people making their way into the building changed his mind. It would be dark inside and full of flashing lights; he didn't want to risk losing them and then inadvertently running into them. 

Instead he mingled outside the entrance, an activity others had found to pass time. Several punks were crouched around the area, begging for money. They weren't poor, they just wanted some extra cash. While the crowd moved quickly past the thugs, Shige stood besides them. The flashing light decors for the outside of the building illuminated them enough for them to see who he was. Lucifer's Reckoning was well known in this district. In fact Shige wouldn't be surprised if some of these pathetic teenagers worked for him.

As he waited for the two to return, Shige puffed on a cigarette, a habit that he didn't often do unless he was in a position where he couldn't do harder drugs.
