I’m inpatient so, backstory Part 1
Mochi had a good life honestly. Well if you didn't think too much into it. They learned things that others apparently didn't learn but that just meant they were smart right? They grew up in a house that had a stable income and everything was perfectly normal, they were perfectly normal. Except other kids didn't know how to hide from the cold alone outside, they didn't know how to manipulate someone, they didn't know how to blend into the shadows or know how to eavesdrop without anyone even knowing you exist. The others didn't know that everyone was constantly in danger of the others, they trusted and they loved not realizing the secrets they handed out freely. But it's not a big deal, she was just a little different, a little smarter, that's what everyone else said.
They were a good kid with good grades with a normal family and was completely normal. They weren't like the kids who were constantly beat, they weren't thrown insults. She wasn't a genius or a prodigy and she wasn't stupid, she seemed to have a mind slightly off.
No one batted an eye when they started writing down in notebooks, why would they? Mochi didn't exist. But Mochi had faced the consequences of talking and accidentally dropping that said knowledge, it wasn't something they needed having happen again. All the information in their mind needed an outlet though, somewhere to be reliably stored and shared so they started the notebooks.
It was filled with everything they needed, information on different people, info on places, analysis, murder plans, and escape plans, animals and technology, anything that came into their mind.
What does any of this have to do with the Chaos family? Well it went like this.
Mochi was watching the latest thing that caught their attention; the chaos family. To be honest the family scared them, quite an accomplishment but very concerning. Mochi knew Sal, a far off neighbor, thought they were a mafia family, but that wasn't what scared them. They were just too authentic and trusting. Some of the members would only be there for a few days and a spot at the table was there, every part of people coming out and then appreciated. Everyone listened and cared and it was wrong. Nothing was sugar-coated, but why would it when most of it was so nice. Mochi couldn’t understand how they did that. So they spent much of their time now trying to find info on the family.
One of the members, who they seemed to call Cenn or Renn, was working on a project from ver work while the kids hung out at the playground. Cenn was their favorite to watch, they don't know why. Maybe it had to do with how much ve ended up telling their projects out loud, it was always fun to work it out while watching vem. Ve had just told the lawyer, Green, about ver most recent project, so they excitedly got to work. Apparently, they got too excited as their shaking caused their notebook to fall loudly against the ground.
Cenn’s head turned to my direction, where they sat frozen on my tree, and then looked down at the notebook, “Need any help?”
Mochi immediately became stuttering and waving their hands around, “I..Its...no..yeah..it's fine…”
Apparently it was Mochi’s unlucky day because Cenn was already picking up the notebook, and even worse, the page it was turned to was the same page that held their answer to Cenn’s project. What was supposed to be a small glance became a stare as Cenn saw the name of the page. As much as they wanted to, Mochi couldn’t stop vem from reading it. And so for a minute Mochi sat tense as the tree and Cenn read the stupid notes until,
“What is this?”
“Well, you see, just some notes for an idea, it's nothing.”
“..I’ve been working on this thing for a hour, how long have you been taking these notes.”
“Just a little while, a few minutes? I just overheard a little and my mind ran off I guess, I’m sorry.”
“Don’t be sorry, this is great. I didn’t even think of this.”
Oh no. This was not supposed to be a conversation. Time for an escape route. The layout of the park ran through their head as they tried to think of a good reason to leave.
“I’m sorry but I really got to go, y’know mum probably wants me home by now.” The lie came out naturally.
“Really? Where do you live?” Shit. Where do they live again? Is it better to lie or tell the truth? No time, just answer ve are waiting,
“Oh uh over there.” And they pointed. Towards where they most definitely not live. Mochi pointed towards the town with the worst crime rates, and that's including the Chaos family. Great.
Of course a wave of concern crossed Cenn’s face. A kid, walking towards there, alone, at sunset? Not a good idea. “Would it be okay if I walk you there?”
Yeah no. This was already completely off script. So of course in their panic induced brain, they flipped on the tree to grab the notebook and jumped off towards where they pointed. Mochi started running backwards when their wits came back, “I should really get home now. Run home y’know. Mum probably wouldn’t like that, stranger danger right?” and turned around to sprint around the block.
That went great.
Of course, when Mochi was around Cenn again, ve saw them and came over.
“Did you get home okay?”
“Yeah great. Thank you.”
“I was wondering actually, do you have any more notes on my project?” A whole page maybe.
“Just a little bit, nothing really.”
“Do you mind if I read it.” Absolutely yes.
“Yeah..no..um you can read it.” Yes, hand vem the notebook that has everything that proves you stalk their family, great idea. Mochi knew this was a terrible idea, so they went to minimize the damage, opening to the right page before handing it to vem. Thanks to anything holy Cenn only read the page they gave. Hopefully ve would read it, hate them and leave. A million different scenarios ran through Mochi’s mind of what they should do, when Cenn decimated every single plan by taking out a flyer?
Mochi's eyes were already scanning the page, when Mochi saw "Hiring"
What in the ever living..
“Well, I’m swamped with work, and honestly this is the best thing I’ve seen in years.” W h a t.
“So, I could use someone with a brain like yours to get some of this work off my back," Cenn handed them the flyer and said, "Here. Just think about it.:
Ok, ok, ok. No or yes? Interaction is hell but it would get me more information. It is just helping Cenn right? No reason to actually interact with more of the family.
This is a bad idea. The worst idea possible. But..
The poster stared through Mochi. In big bold letters “Hiring” and under that, “Advisor for Maxx Chaos needed.”
They should just write it down. Look out for new people around the chaos family. But..
A job would help pay for notebooks. This job would allow more information on the Chaos family. It could be fun, working on Cenn’s projects.
And look at that they already sent a quick text to the number on the poster, “Need a resume?”
Oh no. What are they doing? Their resume is atrocious, nothing of substance just random facts, it would probably scare anyone off.
The phone beeped, “A resume, you say?”
And well gosh, you can’t leave the Chaos Family on read. So they quickly copy and pasted the resume.
Once again a terrible idea.
“Wow. If you want to you can be my advisor.”
And that's how you destroy a Mochi. What in the world?
“What's the hours?”
“Always. Come to the address listed as soon as you can.”
...Mochi is right outside the house. How long is an acceptable amount of time till someone should arrive? Can’t be too early or too late, don’t want to make it worse.. And the choice was out of their hands.
“Who are you?” Oh no. A member of the family, wondering why in the world I’m standing in front of their mansion.
Guess the best time is now. “I’m the new guy, well Cenn’s advisor? Ve told me to come a.s.a.p.”
“Cool! Come in, ve are probably in the meeting room. Good luck!”
The person dragged them in and they left. Mochi is left alone, in a mansion, with no direction. A meeting room.
It is a little concerning how nobody gave more than a glance at a random person wandering around in the house. But they found the room with little ruckus. Well things were blowing up in some hallways but it is the Chaos family. Mochi turned the handle to the door that said “Meeting room” and started the job.
