*A store doorbell sounds.*
[Donut Delivery Scene Graphic]
Older Lady: Oh, Kozutsumi-chan! You’re running early.
Hatsue: Mhm. Guess I woke up earlier today.
Older Lady: You’re so reliable. I know I couldn’t trust my daughter to get up before noon on a Saturday at your age. What’s your secret?
Hatsue: I’m being paid.
Older Lady: Ha ha! Yes, I suppose that would certainly do it, wouldn’t it?
Here you go, then. A little extra something.
Hatsue: Oh, no, I don’t need a ti- ooooooooh, wait wait yes please.
Older Lady: I knew it would be a hit. You’re always so cute with your hair ribbons.
Hatsue: Thank yoooouuu~
Older Lady: It’ll only be a few more minutes before he-
*A door opens and closes.*
Older Man: Donut girl! Right on time!
Hatsue: Good morning.
Older Man: I suppose I need to sign something?
Hatsue: Not with an online order, sir.
Older Man: Ahh, right. I’m still getting used to that... internet thingamabob.
Older Woman: At least you didn’t put your credit card in the CD slot this time!
Older Man: Wh- stop embarrassing me in front of the donut girl!
Hatsue: (She’s covering her mouth, trying not to laugh.)
Older Man: (He sighs.) I suppose I’m off, then.
Hatsue: Sorry I can’t deliver them straight to your office.
Older Man: No, no, it’s no bother! Besides, I look better if I carry them in myself.
Hatsue: If you insist.
Older Man: Oh! By the way, here. If it’s not too much of a bother, would you mind putting up a few of these around your store?
Hatsue: An ad contest?
Older Man: It’s supposed to be some kind of ‘local outreach’ thing- they’re helping out local businesses and shopping districts. Bakers’ Street is the first place they’re testing this.
Older Woman: Kozutsumi-chan? Everything okay?
Hatsue: Yeah, yeah. This... sounds really fun.
Older Man: If you’d like to participate, by all means, go ahead! It’s open to anyone who owns a local business, and I suppose their children count as well.
Older Woman: You both really ought to get going now.
Older Man: Right, right. Okay, I’m off.
Older Woman: You too, Kozutsumi-chan.
Hatsue: Alright. Thanks again for the ribbon.
*The doorbell sounds two more times.*

(She sends a photo of the flyer.)
Tatsu: yoooooo sign me UP
Yomi: Tatsu it’s been two seconds did you even read it
Tatsu: i read a fuck ton of zeroes

Yomi: I’ll take a couple
Hatsue: also i kind of want to enter but i dont have any ideas i was thinking that you guys might have some though
Tatsu: do it 4 the zeroes
Yomi: It’s not that many zeroes
Ana: If we entered as a team we’d have to spit it but even divided by five that’s a satisfactory amount of zeroes.

Kit: what picture
