The Green: Origins

The building appeared in the distance. It came closer and closer as Plague drove faster. I leaned back in my seat and recalled Jillian. Luckily enough, Plague had grown calmer with each passing hour.


Maybe it was the fact that the world was ending. Or the fact that he truly loved me. Whatever the reason: it seemed that he had forgiven me. Now the only thing affecting me about her was the why of the situation.


Finally we reached the building and I got out of the car quickly. I couldn't believe what I saw.


"Matthias!" Plague yelled. I didn't care if anyone affected by Gralg came after me. I was home.


I stopped in front of the familiar entrance.


"It's home." I told Plague as he caught up with me. "This is the place with the scientists."


He put his hand on my shoulder. "Well, let's get your father and get out of here."


"Yeah," I said while smiling. "Let's do that."


I held onto Plague's hand as we pushed the door that promptly fell down. What this place had been, it wasn't now. The way it shined was gone as well as the people. Except for the few corpses that were lying on the ground. The most shocking thing about the corpses was that there seemed to be no trace of Gralg from their attackers.


Plague and I looked at each other.


"You going to be able to handle yourself?" He asked.


"Yes." I replied. Though I was uncertain if I would be able to.


Plague seemed to pick up on my nervousness but still left me to my own devices. And my own devices took me back to my old room and, finally, the table that I had woken up on. Before the table there had been nothing that I could remember.


Maybe if I went onto the table I could remember what I had forgotten. As I took my first trepid steps, my foot pushed against a corpse. I jumped back and looked down. When I looked down I saw that it was Yuji Makija.

*               *              *
 My mind was at once loud and silent. A million thoughts went a thousand different directions. I was finding out I was important and useless all at once. If Plague were to ask me what I was thinking i couldn't tell him.


As Makija's tape finished, I tried to become calm again. No need to appear to be freaked out if Plague were to come back soon. I looked down at the tape player, such an ancient device to humans, and wondered why.


To calm myself down I felt the tape player and tried to gain focus. There was no doubt in my mind that Makija's final recording was the most honest thing he had ever said. No matter how much it pained me now, and probably would in the future, I couldn't doubt the things said on the tape.


I heard footsteps and looked up in anticipation of Plague. Maybe he could erase what I had heard on the tape. As he entered the room, I got off the table I had been sitting on. He looked at the tape player and then my face.


"Did you find out too?" I finally asked him.


"I found out that Yuji Makija is Henry Johnson." Plague paused before continuing. "He is your father."


I laughed sadly. "No, he wasn't my father. I have no father."


"But, John," I felt my mind race and slow at the mention of the name when Plague said it. "You've known for awhile what your real name and father are."


"I'm not Matthias. I'm not John Johnson. I have no real father." This time it was my turn to pause. "Johnson dealt with cloning."


As the implications entered Plague's mind I said, "I guess you can call me Clohn now."

 "So Henry Johnson was cloning." Plague started. "He wanted to become immortal because he feared death. It isn't that unusual of a reason."


"He saw his mother die at a young age." I said, recalling what the tape had taught me. "He was scarred for life. It wasn't wrong what he did."


Plague looked me over and then continued. "So we have a scared child that went into cloning to become immortal. So-"


"Why me?" I asked. "He wanted to test to make sure the process worked before he did it on himself."


"So there were more of you made?"


"The tape said I was the last of the John Johnson batch." I replied.


Plague nodded. "Johnson saw you as the most likely chance of success and so he sent you out into the world to test you."


I rubbed my head where the tracking chip had been pulled out of. It would probably be sore for days. "Yeah," I finally said. "He wanted to see if my memories would come back and if I could survive."


"But nothing came back until that whore."


"Jillian. Yes." I said but was unsure why anything would happen with Jillian and no one else. Then it clicked. Though not all the way. "I'm only going to enjoy sex with women. I wish I could enjoy it with you, Plague."


A tear started to form in Plague's eye. "Yes, Matthias. But at least now I understand if you don't want to be with me. That it isn't your fault. I know how to deal with my urges but that burden shouldn't be passed to you."


I took notice of how he didn't use my new name of Clohn. "I will always stay with you, Plague."


Plague laughed and shook his head. "No you won't. You're straight now."


I walked over to him slowly and made my decision. He was the only one I loved, even if my body didn't admit it. He was the only one that had truly loved me. I couldn't give him up for the world.


I took his hand in mine and slowly went to kiss him on the lips. I knew at once it was desperation and the truth all mixed into one glorious moment. Plague knew my confusion and certainty too. Even through my emotions he managed to kiss back.


We broke away and looked into each other's eyes. "I love you, Matthias." Plague said.


"I love you so much more, Plague." I replied in relief at knowing I had made the right decision.


"I know." Plague said and took out his phone. The next few minutes were him explaining the situation to those in charge.


Plague gave the information that Yuji Makija, formerly known as Henry Johnson, was dead and would've been useless anyways. A cloner wasn't what the army was after. They also wouldn't be interested to know I was the last clone of John Johnson. Nor that I was in love with Plague.

Doctor Who "A Town Called Mercy" Review

Will the Doctor show mercy?

To Boldly Flee (2012)

Title: To Boldly Flee

Parts: 1-8 (aka the whole movie)

Type: Made for a Site (That Guy With the Glasses)

Director: Doug Walker

Starring: Channel Awesome Producers

Rated: N/A

Released: 2012

Personal Rating: 5/5

Oscars: N/A

Basic Plot: Doug Walker starts an epic journey as he is called to go into a Plot Hole.
-----------------------------
References to the Writing Process
As you can tell by the Basic Plot, they do delve into the writing process. Not in an artsy or serious way, but in a humorous one. And they don't delve into the writing process deeply. But those writers, like myself, will get something out of this. If only a little reward. The biggest instance of this is at the end.

Connection to Last Year's Anniversary Movie
This movie has a connection to last year's anniversary movie. Don't worry, you don't need to see the one before this as it's explained enough. You don't get every detail but you do understand enough for the plot to make sense. I was happy to see this connection and to see it wasn't simply dropped off.

Everyone's Talent
This has a lot of good talent in it. Linkara brings his villain MechaKara as a threat to the crew of USS House (?). Oancitizen brings his art house knowledge when Luke Mochire needs to learn more about the Plot. Phelous makes fun of himself as he dies a lot and is wearing a red shirt in the movie.

Final Thoughts
This movie was just awesome. Especially for the budget. I have to mention, again (first time was in the First Thoughts of this movie), that the Nostalgia Critic is retired. I HATE how people are outraged. There are other people on the site (Linkara, Oancitizen, Phelous, Welshy, ect.) and it's not like the site is going to die. Trust me, I was shocked when that part came up. But I trust Doug Walker (Nostalgia Critic) to do good with his plans for a new show.

Sushi, Sake, and Tanuki: After the Fall & Love and Leaving

I talk about the most recent section of Sushi, Sake, and Tanuki and the upcoming section.

Friday, September 14, 2012

Sushi, Sake, and Tanuki: After the Fall

It had been a few days since I had killed Hijunaki. Killed my own creator. It could've brought me nightmares if I had thought about it for a little bit. The reason I hadn't thought that much about it was the woman riding me now.


I was in my Shika Deer form and she was on my back. I was tired and couldn't wait until we arrived somewhere I could rest. The problem with this form was that I didn't feel free. I couldn't jump up and fly to save time. No, I could only run.


I huffed and Yomosa, the lovely woman on my back, scratched behind my ear.


"Don't worry, Rig, we'll be there soon." She said in her calming voice. That voice, as well as her scratching behind my ear, calmed me down. Now I remembered the reason for taking her with me. I had feelings for her. Were they feelings of love? I didn't want to go down that path. Not now.


I was Rig Katashi and I had found something worth living for.


After a few hours of hearing Yomosa's voice I saw a farming village. She quickly jumped off and I shifted into my main human form. As soon as I shifted forms I stretched to test out the limbs of my current form.


"Tell me again why I had to shift into a different form before we reached this village." I complained as soon as I finished stretching.


"Because you said you didn't want to arouse suspicion." Yomosa replied.


"And why did I have to change at all?"


She walked over to me and gave me a kiss. "Because you love me."


We shared a smile and I wished I could admit to what she had just said. We then turned back to looking at the village.


"You haven't lived among humans that much, have you?" She asked.


I shook my head. "Not since Sajoki and Tamui."


Yomosa gave me a smile and that gave me the strength to go into the village.


It was frightening going into the village since these people were humans. Yomosa was human but, again, I had feelings for her. I couldn't say the same thing about the others.


"Where are you people from?" One man asked me after we had asked for a room.


"Around." I replied. "I can't say much more than that. We've been on the run and it's better that you not know more than that."


The man smiled, sensing my lie. "As long as you don't bring trouble we don't mind."


"We'll be gone as soon as we can." I replied and could tell that he was happy for the news. This was a small village and so his reaction was normal. I could tell that Yomosa was slightly insulted, though.


After a few minutes he brought Yomosa and I to a small room. "Thank you." I said and bowed.


"Just keep that promise." The man said and bowed down higher than he needed to.


As soon as he left Yomosa kissed me.


"So we're on the run now?" She said and laughed.


"I thought it was a good excuse." I replied and we let ourselves go. Letting our bodies intertwine in which ways they wanted to.

* * *
"Why do you stay with me?" Yomosa asked, rolling over in the bed.


I shifted to a no form and then shifted back into my main human male form. She laughed and I tried to bring a smile to my face. Truth was that I loved her more than I had ever loved Sajoki. But I had never told her that.


"Why does it matter?" I replied. It didn't matter since I would protect her either way. She knew I would so why did I have to say it.


"Because I want to know if I should keep following you around." She said. "Sort of useless to do if you're just going to abandon me."


"I would never abandon you." I said.


"I know. You risked your life for me."


"I just don't see another option." I replied and then looked at the rising sun. "Looks like we should break our fast now."


Our breakfast was simple and I enjoyed it. However, I missed the feeling of blood going down my cheeks. I missed the feeling of just meat, even if it was cooked. The village had animals, of course, but they saved the meat for special occasions. And two travelers stopping by didn't count as a special occasion.


After we ate our breakfast, we went to a field. The sun was shinning down on us and I looked up at it. Suddenly I felt a foot hit my ribs.


"Ow!" I yelled out and grabbed Yomosa's foot so she fell to the ground.


Being graceful she got up quickly. I decided to play fair and stay in my male human form. This didn't help her much as I had lived for millenia. All things being fair, though, she did a good job at fighting me.


Normally the fight would be done in a few seconds, but I let it go on for awhile. Partially because I liked seeing her fight and partially because she was just that good.


Finally I attempted to block her and failed. We both allowed ourselves to fall to the ground with her in my arms.

* * *
Finally there was silence. Well, unless you wanted to count Yomosa's soft breathing. And I didn't count it as it was peaceful. Her breaths were so peaceful that I hardly noticed them.


I held her slumbering form in my arms. Nothing else mattered. Hijunaki was dead and Sajoki was leaving my mind. I had another now to love and cherish. I didn't have to be held by the demons of my past. I knew, without a shadow of a doubt, Yomosa would never leave me. And, really, who could ask for more than that.


I had been holding Yomosa ever since we had finished making love. It wasn't just plain old fucking, it was love. My arms, finally, were growing tired of holding Yomosa. It would've done in song for me to hold her in my arms the entire night, but this wasn't a song.


I carefully let her go and my efforts were rewarded by her staying asleep. The only movements that showed she noticed what I did was to turn over. If only I could've fallen asleep tonight.


Walking outside the room and into one of the streets, I remembered why I couldn't sleep. The street was quiet now since it was so late at night and I was left to myself. I was left to wallow in my thoughts of feeling like I was being followed.


Jirou wouldn't have followed me. I knew that as a fact. We were too good of friends for him to want to stalk and kill me.


Looking up at the stars I felt like they were looking back at me. I was afraid that they were looking at me. Specifically I was afraid Akumie was looking down at me. Why would I be afraid of her? Why would I imagine that she was looking down to kill me?


If you had pissed off a goddess you'd have the same reaction. I had made her think I loved her so that she'd have sex with me. My plan had worked, but at a high cost. She had been pissed off at me.


I shook my head and went back to sleep with Yomosa. The woman I'd protect from a goddess' wrath. When I woke up I kissed Yomosa and then went to work on the farm.

I had been working on the farm for a few hours. I imagined Yomosa lying next to me in bed just to make it through the day. I had no choice but to let myself be affected by the heat like a regular human. And humans couldn't deal with heat like I could normally.


While I thought about taking the day off I realized that I couldn't. While these humans didn't want me here I had to repay them in some form. And if they had decided it was by working on the farm, so be it.


Finally I was given some interesting work when I was told to kill a rooster. This was due to it not acting nicely to a fellow rooster. Plus, it was meat that the village wanted above all else. The rooster looked at me and realized I wasn't human. So it went to attack me.


It was almost like a mortal attacking a goddess. After a few pecks I was able to cut its head off. I didn't allow the blood coming out to go onto me. Though I allowed a smile when I knew it was dead. Looking out of the doorway I saw a fellow worker eye me oddly.


I would like to describe what I meant by that but I couldn't, not if I wanted to. It was just odd. I didn't know if it was that I couldn't read humans that well or if it actually meant something.


When lunch came I was able to eat alone with Yomosa. I looked around to make sure that no one would over hear us.


"What is it, Rig?" She asked.


"There was an odd incident when I killed a rooster today." I replied.


"Oh, come on, you're still alive aren't you?"


"Sometimes enemies strike slowly and take their times. My enemies can live for millenia."


"Come off it. Who would be after you?"


"The goddess Akumie."


"Never heard of her."


"She isn't one of the big ones." I said and we remained silent for a few minutes to make sure we weren't being observed.


"So, what did you do to piss her off?" Yomosa asked when she could.


"Said I loved her just to have sex." I replied and she slapped me. Luckily another slap didn't soon follow that one and I was able to finish my work on the farm.


Going back to our room at evening we were joking around. We opened our door expecting to find our room uninhabited and ready for some play. Whether it would be sexual or not was yet to be seen. We just had to go through the door.


Going through the door revealed it the room to be torn apart. It looked like a demon had torn through it and left in anger at not finding its prey. Had Akumie done it? Or had the villagers done it to get us out quicker?


"Don't worry." Yomosa told me. But I had to worry. For both of our sake's.
* * *
I found myself looking at Yomosa's sleeping form again. She knew I was there and would find my watchfulness comforting. Well, more the former than the latter would make her less likely to suddenly attack me. Her breathing seemed more worried. And why wouldn't it be? Our room had just been torn through and now there was danger.


Though our room wasn't like Hijunaki's Palace, it was still ours. We hadn't been here for as long as I had been at the Palace, Yomosa didn't have the lifespan for one thing, but at least we had been here for a little while. The invasion was most likely just a threat as we were both alive. Yomosa to sleep and myself to watch. But for what reason was the threat meant?


I quickly stood up and prepared myself to fight as I sensed someone, or something, enter our room. Looking at the robed figure didn't do much. For whatever it was, it wanted to be hidden.


"What do you want?" I asked sternly.


"Rig Katashi," The figure said in a sickly voice. Sickly for a human but normal for an Air Elemental. "You must leave."


"We were already thinking of leaving this village. No need to tell us we have to leave here." I replied. Though I knew that it meant something else entirely.


"You must leave this land." It said. "You must cross the ocean, which you have only seen lapping at the beaches, and find somewhere else."


"You mean leave the only land I have ever known?" I walked up close to it, but I still couldn't tell if it even had a face. "What gives you the right?"


"I want to save your life." It said without its sickly voice hindering the anger. "The one who is coming against you can't leave this land."


"And who is this one?"


"Names have power. Invoking this one's name would have devastating consequences."


I thought about what this creature was saying. It wasn't just talking about leaving a village or going into hiding. It was talking about leaving it all behind. I didn't mind leaving some memories behind, but others I couldn't dream of saying goodbye to.


"And what if I stay?" I finally asked.


"Then you are your lover will die." It replied. "It's not an easy choice. But you need to make it."


I took a few steps back and nodded.


"I have done what I can here." It replied and just disappeared.


At that exact moment Yomosa woke up.


"We have to go now." I told her.


"Why?" She asked and stared at me.


"A creature, possibly an elemental, told me that we have to leave this land so we can live." I explained and an expression of despair washed over her face.


"Are you sure?" She asked and I looked away.


"Yes." I said and then what came out next I couldn't have stopped even if I had wanted to. "I love you and I wouldn't lead you into unneeded danger."


This didn't lead to a kiss but merely an embrace that said so much more.

After many minutes we stopped the embrace. I had finally told her. I had finally admitted it to her as I had admitted it to myself before. I loved her. I loved her completely and then suddenly felt bad about telling her a lie. Such a little one but it was there.


"You don't have to leave this land." I told her. "You can stay. It is I who have to leave."


Yomosa looked at me and I was worried that she would get angry. That this moment would be ruined forever.


"I know." She finally said. "I doubt the elemental would be that concerned with me. I'm just a human."


I smiled sadly. "More than a human. Much more. But you have the choice to make. If you want to choose the safer option I will understand."


"I have already chosen." Yomosa said and planted a light kiss on my forehead. "And I am not going back."


After she spoke we started to pack up. We didn't have much but that didn't mean it took us a short amount of time to get finished. All of our belongings were spread across the room. Most of the time was spent finding specific items.


By the end of this challenge we were both worn out. I even thought that Yomosa would leave me by how high tensions got.

Many hours later we finally left the village. We didn't say goodbye or say thanks. Whatever was after me wouldn't care where the extra minutes came from. Yomosa felt bad about leaving without warning but I managed to convince her to just leave with me.


As we got a good distance from the village it turned midnight. I set up a place for her to sleep and then she lay by me. I knew a few things as Yomosa fell asleep by my side. I knew that she was the bravest human I had yet met. I knew that I'd do anything to protect. Finally, I knew that I loved her completely.

I found myself looking at Yomosa's sleeping form again. She knew I was there and would find my watchfulness comforting. Well, more the former than the latter would make her less likely to suddenly attack me. Her breathing seemed more worried. And why wouldn't it be? Our room had just been torn through and now there was danger.


Though our room wasn't like Hijunaki's Palace, it was still ours. We hadn't been here for as long as I had been at the Palace, Yomosa didn't have the lifespan for one thing, but at least we had been here for a little while. The invasion was most likely just a threat as we were both alive. Yomosa to sleep and myself to watch. But for what reason was the threat meant?


I quickly stood up and prepared myself to fight as I sensed someone, or something, enter our room. Looking at the robed figure didn't do much. For whatever it was, it wanted to be hidden.


"What do you want?" I asked sternly.


"Rig Katashi," The figure said in a sickly voice. Sickly for a human but normal for an Air Elemental. "You must leave."


"We were already thinking of leaving this village. No need to tell us we have to leave here." I replied. Though I knew that it meant something else entirely.


"You must leave this land." It said. "You must cross the ocean, which you have only seen lapping at the beaches, and find somewhere else."


"You mean leave the only land I have ever known?" I walked up close to it, but I still couldn't tell if it even had a face. "What gives you the right?"


"I want to save your life." It said without its sickly voice hindering the anger. "The one who is coming against you can't leave this land."


"And who is this one?"


"Names have power. Invoking this one's name would have devastating consequences."


I thought about what this creature was saying. It wasn't just talking about leaving a village or going into hiding. It was talking about leaving it all behind. I didn't mind leaving some memories behind, but others I couldn't dream of saying goodbye to.


"And what if I stay?" I finally asked.


"Then you are your lover will die." It replied. "It's not an easy choice. But you need to make it."


I took a few steps back and nodded.


"I have done what I can here." It replied and just disappeared.


At that exact moment Yomosa woke up.


"We have to go now." I told her.


"Why?" She asked and stared at me.


"A creature, possibly an elemental, told me that we have to leave this land so we can live." I explained and an expression of despair washed over her face.


"Are you sure?" She asked and I looked away.


"Yes." I said and then what came out next I couldn't have stopped even if I had wanted to. "I love you and I wouldn't lead you into unneeded danger."


This didn't lead to a kiss but merely an embrace that said so much more.

-------------------------------------------
Two Best Scenes
Two of the best scenes of this movie involve running. Both times the scenes are long but engaging. They both involve the main leading lady getting chased around. The first time by who I called "The Flirty Guy". The Flirty Guy sees trees trying to stop him (trust me, it's cooler than crazy) and so the leading lady has a few seconds of borrowed time. The second one is at the end of the movie. This chase reveals a lot about the plot and is one of the most disturbing moments of the film.

First Part is Build Up
The first part is actually very slow. It's build up where there's a mystery that you already know is there. It should slowly hint at a mystery whereas the mystery is pointed out. You know there's something wrong with the institute and yet you have to wait for the characters to catch up. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed Part 1 but you have to admit it was slow.

The Non-Ending
I'll try to make this part spoiler free as possible: this movie has an ending where it shows the problem was never solved. These endings are good for shock but it doesn't make sense in my opinion. The character who decides to "turn evil" seems like he/she would have a greater reason to "stay good". If Dad wasn't watching it with me I would've yelled: What just happened?!

Final Thoughts
I love this movie but it does have its fair share of problems. Would I watch this again? Why yes I would. I also plan to watch the original Coma as well as read the book in the future.

Sushi, Sake, and Tanuki: After the Fall 4

I had been working on the farm for a few hours. I imagined Yomosa lying next to me in bed just to make it through the day. I had no choice but to let myself be affected by the heat like a regular human. And humans couldn't deal with heat like I could normally.


While I thought about taking the day off I realized that I couldn't. While these humans didn't want me here I had to repay them in some form. And if they had decided it was by working on the farm, so be it.


Finally I was given some interesting work when I was told to kill a rooster. This was due to it not acting nicely to a fellow rooster. Plus, it was meat that the village wanted above all else. The rooster looked at me and realized I wasn't human. So it went to attack me.


It was almost like a mortal attacking a goddess. After a few pecks I was able to cut its head off. I didn't allow the blood coming out to go onto me. Though I allowed a smile when I knew it was dead. Looking out of the doorway I saw a fellow worker eye me oddly.


I would like to describe what I meant by that but I couldn't, not if I wanted to. It was just odd. I didn't know if it was that I couldn't read humans that well or if it actually meant something.


When lunch came I was able to eat alone with Yomosa. I looked around to make sure that no one would over hear us.


"What is it, Rig?" She asked.


"There was an odd incident when I killed a rooster today." I replied.


"Oh, come on, you're still alive aren't you?"


"Sometimes enemies strike slowly and take their times. My enemies can live for millenia."


"Come off it. Who would be after you?"


"The goddess Akumie."


"Never heard of her."


"She isn't one of the big ones." I said and we remained silent for a few minutes to make sure we weren't being observed.


"So, what did you do to piss her off?" Yomosa asked when she could.


"Said I loved her just to have sex." I replied and she slapped me. Luckily another slap didn't soon follow that one and I was able to finish my work on the farm.


Going back to our room at evening we were joking around. We opened our door expecting to find our room uninhabited and ready for some play. Whether it would be sexual or not was yet to be seen. We just had to go through the door.


Going through the door revealed it the room to be torn apart. It looked like a demon had torn through it and left in anger at not finding its prey. Had Akumie done it? Or had the villagers done it to get us out quicker?


"Don't worry." Yomosa told me. But I had to worry. For both of our sake's.

Sushi, Sake, and Tanuki: After the Fall 3

Finally there was silence. Well, unless you wanted to count Yomosa's soft breathing. And I didn't count it as it was peaceful. Her breaths were so peaceful that I hardly noticed them.


I held her slumbering form in my arms. Nothing else mattered. Hijunaki was dead and Sajoki was leaving my mind. I had another now to love and cherish. I didn't have to be held by the demons of my past. I knew, without a shadow of a doubt, Yomosa would never leave me. And, really, who could ask for more than that.


I had been holding Yomosa ever since we had finished making love. It wasn't just plain old fucking, it was love. My arms, finally, were growing tired of holding Yomosa. It would've done in song for me to hold her in my arms the entire night, but this wasn't a song.


I carefully let her go and my efforts were rewarded by her staying asleep. The only movements that showed she noticed what I did was to turn over. If only I could've fallen asleep tonight.


Walking outside the room and into one of the streets, I remembered why I couldn't sleep. The street was quiet now since it was so late at night and I was left to myself. I was left to wallow in my thoughts of feeling like I was being followed.


Jirou wouldn't have followed me. I knew that as a fact. We were too good of friends for him to want to stalk and kill me.


Looking up at the stars I felt like they were looking back at me. I was afraid that they were looking at me. Specifically I was afraid Akumie was looking down at me. Why would I be afraid of her? Why would I imagine that she was looking down to kill me?


If you had pissed off a goddess you'd have the same reaction. I had made her think I loved her so that she'd have sex with me. My plan had worked, but at a high cost. She had been pissed off at me.


I shook my head and went back to sleep with Yomosa. The woman I'd protect from a goddess' wrath. When I woke up I kissed Yomosa and then went to work on the farm.
