Wherein her shadow tries to convince Akane to embrace the family business.

Who: Akane, shadow!Akane, and OPEN
What: Akane and her shadow have words with one another. Things escalate.
Where: Outside the Ichiban Market
When: At night on the 20th
Warnings: Likely violence

[Two identical little girls are facing off in front of the ichiban market. Well, identical except that one of them has yellow eyes.]

Look at you. Playing around in a grocery store. Pretending that you can get by all on your own, living honestly and working for what you have.

[The shadow's voice is all but dripping sarcasm. Akane's response is defensive.]

I have been working hard! A-and I've been doing fine!

Sure you have. How far do you think you could get without the money they're just giving you? You'd be starving on the streets and you know it.

I have a job...

Oh, right. Good job with that too. Does Nee-chan know how close the market is to collapsing because you have no idea how to do anything useful?

[Akane falls silent, but the shadow doesn't let up.]

Why deny it? You know how much easier things are on the other side of the law. They say crime doesn't pay, but we know that's wrong. Fancy clothes, expensive cars, cool toys.... You can have anything you want if you're just willing to take it.

[Akane shakes her head firmly in denial.]

No! That isn't true!

Not true? Please. It worked for Daddy and Grandfather, didn't it? And is what they do really all that different from what Tom-san and Shizuo-nichan do? What makes you so much better than them?

I never said that! I just wanted to-!

[The shadow cuts her off.]

You know I do have some good news for you. You don't have to pretend anything with Nee-chan anymore. I told her everything already. She knows exactly what you are.

You don't know a thing about what I am! You don't know anything about me!

Don't be stupid. I know everything about you. I am you.

No you're not! You're not me!

[Intervene? Lurk and see where this goes? Make popcorn and watch the show? Someone should probably do something before this gets out of hand....]
