This was really great. No, really; Kou was practically enthused at the idea of having to pay a great portion of money to get his stupid car fixed. It wasn't like he even used it all that much! And he treated his vehicle with respect and dignity when he did - so it repays him like this, does it? Perfect. Absolutely perfect. He had to miss work (which would have been paying for this whole escapade) to come get it fixed, and now his mood was just on a downhill slide for the entire trip over there.
As he drove to the nearest mechanic, Kou muttered foul words under his breath. His car rattled and wheezed as he turned a corner, practically trembling under the great amount of energy it was exerting in order to get him to the mechanic. "You useless piece of-" He growled under his breath, braking and pulling over to the side and shutting it off. He let it sit there for a minute, listening to the steady and uneasy tick tick tick as the engine cooled. He should have known; he'd gotten the car for super cheap. Why wouldn't it fall apart after only driving it for a little bit?
"I guess it's not your fault you're a shoddy piece of machinery," he muttered to the car, starting it back up again after a few minutes of cooling. It came to life with a weighted wheeze, shuddering and then kicking into gear. He prayed to whatever God there might be up there that he made it to the mechanic before it disintegrated into a thousand little pieces.
And he did, thank goodness. Kou pulled into the mechanic with a loud clatter; the engine died just as he pulled in, allowing him to drift all the way into the correct parking spot before parking. He patted the wheel, almost companionably, and then slipped out of the car. "Hello?" he called, peering around. "Anybody home? My car is dead and really broken, so."
