One of the bigger buildings in the small town, the large building with the two story shopfront and the one story ring that serves as a home for Aya, Amaterasu, and Momiji. It faces the rising sun in the east.

Of course, being a newspaper, shopfront is taken fairly lightly. Despite being the bulk of the building, the two story section is actually one giant room, stacked with cases containing pictures and notes that are related to each other, all with some system of organization that only Aya really understands. From the front desk, where most people buy their papers (or pick them up for delivery to other cities), many people get mesmerized watching her flitting back and forth between the high shelves, listening to the hypnotic hum of the printing press. How she finds the time to both gather and put together all these materials on her own every week is a mystery even to her family, who are technically the only other workers at the newspaper.

The back door of the shop leads out into a courtyard, with low overhangs and painted paper screen walls on all non-shop sides of the house. The outer wall of the house is solid of course, but the inside is reminiscent of an estate in a faraway land, serene and calm. A large lace-leaf maple, the namesake of the newspaper, stands in the center of the yard. Even before Aya had the place built, she liked to take naps in that tree. She still does spend more of her nights there than in her bed, weather allowing. A small fountain feeds a pond on the side of the tree, as well as an herb garden that Aya keeps to keep dinner fresh and exciting.

Most company is kept in the courtyard, under the overhangs. There is however, plenty of space for people in the dining and cooking areas on the north side of the building. The west side has the bedrooms, and the south is exclusively full of Amaterasu's paintings; new, old, magicked, and not.

This fine evening finds Aya standing in her little sister's room, armed with a stick. She pokes her in the ribs, through the thick comforter of course, enough to almost turn her to her side several times. "Heeeey. Hey siiiiiiiiiis. Almost dinner tiiiiiime and you're still not out of beeeeeeeeed."

"Mmmph fiiiiine." she mumbles as she sits up on her bed, rubbing her eyes.

Aya laughs, tossing the stick back into the corner. "And here I thought I'd have to tell you it was bone-in-ham before you got up."

The mere mention of 'bone-in-ham' is enough to get her to leap out of bed and begin getting dressed in an instant.

"Muaahaha." Aya zooms out of the room ahead of her, closing the door behind her.

The door opens only moments later, however, and quickly something pounces behind her and wraps her up in a big hug.

"Hmph! As if I don't care about big sis cooties!" all her attempts to remove her fail, as Momiji's hug is iron-tight. And affectionate.

Aya does her best to drag her little sister towards the kitchen, but she ends up just falling over.

Having her pinned, Miji gives her a proper little sis greeting by pecking her on the cheek and hugging her from the front.

"Nooooooo!" She pats Miji's back and pecks her forehead. "Now get off so the food doesn't burn!"

"Fiiine." She gets off and helps Aya up before heading into the kitchen.

The aroma of freshly cooked meat wafted around them as they approached.

It's taking all of Momiji's concentration to not just devour any meat in sight right now.

Aya intentionally slows down to get revenge for being taken to the ground.

It takes some effort, but she manages to keep her composure.

"Ohhhhhhhh, Miji you should go get Mom! Won't take very long~." Just some mean sister moments.

And so she does. "Mom mom mom mom" she calls excitedly throughout the house. Some bone-in-ham was at waiting, after all.

Of course, Ammy can't hear her over her own humming, as she cleans her room carefully. It might have helped if her door was open.

Aya slips away from her distracted sister to set the table and check on the meat. It wasn't really in any danger of burning, in fact it probably needed to cook for another ten minutes or so. But that was probably how long it would take to get their mother into the dining room, anyway. A light breeze blows in from the open screen, unusually crisp for a summer evening. Maybe it would be a good day to eat out in the courtyard instead?

"Mom mom momomomom!" Without missing a beat, Momiji opens the door and jumps into her mother's arms.

"Ah!" Ammy about jumps out of her skin before catching her daughter in her arms, wrapping her in a big hug. It seems her hearing may be going... Or her ears need a cleaning. "Good morning little Momi, even if it is dinner time."

She responds with an affectionate nuzzle.
