|Physical Description|
    Suzu is a tall and well-built woman with sharp, mature features and healthy tone of skin that isn't too pale nor too dark. What stands out most immediately is the crimson hue of her eyes and hair which is typically pulled up into a simple ponytail. The red orbs of her eyes are vibrant and full of life but also clear and critically observant of her surroundings. Her expression is typically a jovial one, often wearing wearing a smile or a grin though if someone happens to set her off Suzu can become a rather frightening individual. Her typical clothing is a casual and simple and a cross between a desire for comfort and the level of professionalism that comes with being a teacher.

|Personality|
    Suzu is a passionate woman who lives life with vigor and purpose. She's an outgoing individual who can often be seen taking charge or leading whatever group happens to form around her. She's the type who doesn't do anything half-heartedly, anything she actually decides to take on she does so with her full and best effort, and she expects the same from those around her. Loyalty and honesty are traits Suzu holds in high regard and are things she tries to apply to herself as best she can. Her word means a lot to her so you can rest assured when entrusting a secret in her or making a promise or deal, she'll go to many lengths to follow through and hold up her end of a bargain.

    Befitting any good teacher, Suzu is a warm and kind person at heart who seeks to enrich the life of her students and those she feels close to. With that said however Suzu also has a rather fiery temper. When her ire is raised this nurturing individual becomes quite fierce and perhaps even frightening as she sets out on a quest to reap her vengeance or justice upon whatever unfortunate soul that had managed to piss her off. In the end Suzu is also a very playful woman who refuses to let her inner child die. When someone catches her eye she's not afraid to say or show it and will often unabashedly flirt with them or tease them as she tries to get know them better.

Image|History|
    In truth there's very little to say about Suzu's history. Her life was quite average, well, as average as it can get for a member of the Sohma family at any rate. Her childhood was pleasant enough and free from any real dramas or trying times and Suzu was a generally liked girl for her more obvious positive traits. She was a fairly popular girl in school, but despite this attention never had a boyfriend, there were even rumors that she was gay floating about which turned out to be partially true. During her final two years of highschool, unbeknownst to most, Suzu had a girlfriend, however once they graduated and moved off to college they steadily grew apart. Being so committed to her schoolwork in college she's remained single ever since then.

    Suzu's college experience was a rather boring one thanks to her focus on schoolwork over other frivolous activities that many other students seemed to involve themselves in. Being so single-minded on her work Suzu became a bit of a hermit and only maintained a rather small group of friends and as such spent much of her free time (that wasn't dedicated to studying) playing games, a hobby she had kept up since she was quite young. It was during these college years that she picked up the habit of smoking, what started as a means to alleviate a bit of stress quickly turned to a full blown addiction. Now that she's a teacher however she has made many (failed) attempts to quit and tries to hide the fact she smokes from her students and peers.

    After graduating with a teaching degree Suzu returned to the high school she attended in her youth to teach a new generation of children. As the newest teacher at her school Suzu often gets the short end of the stick but she doesn't let it get to her. Suzu takes quite the effort to be a good teacher, to be both likable and down to Earth, but also efficient and effective in getting results out of her students. She can come off as a bit strict at times due to her desire to push her student's limits and coax out their best efforts but she is also a very caring and supportive teacher who's open to helping out with any issues a kid might have, school-related or otherwise.

      ImageMiyako stretched, she had received a fair amount of sleep so she was fairly happy with her more relaxed state. Shadow, her cat, meowed in protest to her moving around. "Good morning to you too, Shadow."

      Shadow glared at Miyako, jumped off the bed and sauntered over to his food bowl.

      "I'm sorry. I'll sleep on the floor next time." Miyako swung her legs over the side of the bed and into her slippers. "Time for school." Miyako started the day off with her usual routine. Shower, eat, clean out Shadow's liter box and let him outside. Shadow was 'officially' the cat of the Estate, going from house to house and getting cared for my practically everyone. But Miyako had bought him, raised him and loved him. She let him out when she got up so that if anyone came over, they wouldn't know she, the Rat, had a cat. The liter box was always clean and hidden, just like the food bowl.

      If she could, she would let everyone know that she loved cats, but it wouldn't make the Head happy. And Miyako's entire existance was to make him happy. It was her 'position', her 'role'.

      A glance at the clock revealed that it was about time for Miyako to head out. She decided to put her hair in a fairly loose side ponytail, along with a beige knitted sweater that was slightly big on her, a flowing mid-thigh black skirt, knee-high sock and a pair of slip on black shoes. With that and her shoulder back pack, Miyako was prepared for the trip to her university. Luckily, it was a very mild day, perfect for Miyako's delicate health. If it was too cold, she would faint. Too hot, she would faint. But today was perfect.

      "Good morning Miyako!" One of the maids was sweeping the walkway in front of Miyako's house.

      "Good morning," Miyako said with a wave. "How is everyone? Did Sona get over her cold?"

      "Ah, yes! Thank you for the rice porridge! She loved it."

      Miyako nodded, she was always happy to help. The walk to the front gate wasn't that long, maybe a minute or two. The Estate was huge after all, what would anyone expect. On the way to her university, Miyako passed parks, train tracks, children playing, other kids getting ready to leave for school and stores upon stores. She stopped by a coffee shop closer to her school for some coffee.

      "Oh!" Miyako dug around in her bag, pulling out a small container that looked almost like a wallet. But it had her daily medications inside, for days that she left for school and forgot to take her medication at home. Miyako popped a few pills into her mouth, took a nice chug of coffee and continued on her walk to school.

      Ren groaned as he rolled out of bed in the morning, why did school have to be so early? Rubbing the sleep from his eyes, Ren shuffled into the bathroom to get ready. Ren noticed that his hair was especially wild today so he made a mental note to wear a hat.

      After Ren had finished in the bathroom he was much more awake, grinning to himself he skipped merrily to his closet before pulling the first things his hands came in contact with. Pulling on the horribly mismatched clothes, Ren chuckled at himself as he dug through his drawers for a pair of socks. Not caring that he looked like a blind person had picked out his outfit, Ren ran down stairs and turned on some music as he readied his breakfast and lunch.

      Ren had never been a very good cook, so the runny mess that used to be an egg before it was brutally murdered didn't faze him. Hurriedly stuffing his face full of breakfast, Ren put his plate in the dishwasher as he skipped out of the now ruined kitchen. How it'd gotten so messy when he'd only made two eggs and some horribly burnt toast? The world my never know.

      Pulling on some brown boots, Ren reached inside the downstairs closet and pulled out a stocking cap. Pulling it over his head and down to his ears, Ren gave a toothy grin as a few wild snow colored locks of hair poked out from underneath the black cap. Running out the door Ren breathed in the fresh air before his eyes widened and he ran back into the kitchen where he'd left his lunch and school bag.

      Skipping out the door and into the crisp morning air, Ren waved at everyone he passed, sending a quick, "Hello!" before carrying on his way to the high school. Ren ignored the strange looks people gave him and smiled at the thought of seeing everyone at school. He couldn't wait to see his best friend Akihiko today! Grinning at the thought, he didn't notice the part of the pavement that was uneven until it was to late. Falling Ren couldn't help but let a squeak escape as he hit the pavement. Looking up, Ren noticed that his lunch had fallen out of the bag and was now all over the sidewalk. Sighing, Ren got up and dusted him self off. Picking up the little of his lunch that could be saved Ren couldn't help but frown, "Maybe today won't be such a good day..."

      Kaze never really had use for an alarm. Seriously, if you barely went to school like he did, what was the point? Of course, that didn't mean he was allowed to sleep in today. With all the hustle and noise coming from the rest of the estate, who could? With a slightly annoyed grunt as he stretched and sat up, he walked over to the edge of the Estate's main house. Taking out a canteen and brush, he began to quickly brush his teeth, spitting the water used to rinse his mouth onto the ground below. Putting the brush and canteen to the side, he watched as others left the area to go to school.

      First to leave was Miyako, her air of perfection trailing behind her. Second came a rushing Ren, who ended up tripping and spilling the contents of his lunch all over the ground. Kaze just watched him from afar, attempting to cover his need to laugh out loud. His joy was snuffed out pretty quickly as a drop of rain hit him on the nose. Without any warning the skies let down a torrent of water. Kaze moved quickly, throwing a waterproof tarp over his items that were on the roof. Pros about living on a roof were having a nice view of the sunset, sunrise and stars. Cons of roof-dwelling were you had no protection from the elements. After he had covered his belongings from the rain, he turned back to the albino male who had fallen before. Only this time, he wasn't alone. He was accompanied by one pink-haired girl, Akihiko. "Awww. Isn't that cute." Kaze snickered, talking to no one in particular.

      He hated school, no doubt about that, but the first day was one that he always made sure he went to. It was easily one of the more interesting days and it was on that day when he would decide whether or not he would go to class that year. Reaching under his tarp, Kaze took out an umbrella and held it in his mouth. He then pulled out his bag and slung it across his shoulder. He descended from his perch on the roof before opening his umbrella. As he started off on his way to the school he couldn't help but wish that this year might actually prove to be interesting. Of course, he had his doubts.

      Kimi groaned as she heard her alarm go off. Reaching her hand out blindly, Kimi moved her hand around her nightstand trying to find the source of the horrible ringing. Grimacing as she felt her hand knock the alarm onto the ground, Kimi quickly jumped out of bed to make sure the alarm was alright. I swear Kimi if you've broken another alarm clock! But as the girl walked over to check on it, her foot caught in the bed sheets and she found herself face-down on the floor.

      After Kimi had gotten herself ready, she walked into the kitchen in search of some breakfast. Opening the cupboards Kimi sighed, "Well...looks like it's bread and jam this morning...".

      After a delicious breakfast of bread and jam, Kimi packed up her lunch and made sure she had everything in her bag before opening up the door and stepping outside. ...Only to find it was raining. 'Figures...', turning back towards the door, Kimi went to open it. "Seriously?!" Seriously. The door was locked and Kimi had forgotten her keys inside. Again. Kimi couldn't even begin to tell you how many times she'd had to ask the head to let her into her house after locking herself out. "Unbelievable..."

      Deciding to walk on the side of the street with more trees, Kimi continued her walk to school in the rain without an umbrella. Kimi sighed as she looked down at her soaking uniform, each step her feet took a quiet squish sound could be heard. Looking up at the sky, Kimi took a deep breath of the morning air. Letting the raindrops hit her face Kimi smiled. Yes she'd most likely end up with a cold, but Kimi didn't necessarily hate the rain, so for now she'd enjoy it. Until a terrible thought struck her. Gasping, Kimi quickly fumbled with her school bag as she opened it. Looking inside Kimi breathed a sigh of relief, her sketch pad was ok. Smiling, Kimi continued her walk to school.

      Reaching the school gates Kimi sighed. 'One more year' Kimi reminded herself, 'Just one more year...'. Stepping inside the gates Kimi made a beeline for the school, she'd been in the rain long enough. Feeling her face heat up as people stared at her soaked self in question, Kimi kept her head down and felt like things couldn't get worse. Until she slipped as soon as she got inside the school.

      Suzu Sohma

      "Ugh..." Suzu groaned as the blaring alarm that sat near her bed came to life an assault of unpleasant sound. With the meekest amount of energy she could muster she rolled over and slammed her palm down on the device to shut the damn thing up. "Guess I stayed up too late with that game last night after all... Even though I told myself I wouldn't." Somehow, she forced herself to sit up despite the ever so enticing thought of simply returning to sleep. What kind of teacher would she be if she was late to school, on the first day no less? With a nod she reached over to the small carton of smokes that sat not from her alarm, a feeling of despair crept up as she felt the depressingly light weight of the carton, it was empty. A sigh escaped her lips as she crushed the fragile paper construct in her hand and tossed it aside, not particularly caring where it ended up.

      With that out of the way she went about her usual morning rituals, her energy steadily returning to her particularly once she was out of the shower. She made an easy breakfast of scrambled eggs and toast for herself and decided to just skip preparing lunch, she could just go pick something up later after all. With a moment spent to double check that she had everything she left her apartment and locked the door behind her. It was short walk down to the garage of the apartment complex which housed the rather ordinary looking four-door car that she called her own. The only thing that really stood out about it was the red paint job. With a brief moment spent to turn on the radio she began the fairly short commute to school.

      Along the way she drove by the Sohma estate as she always did on her way to school. She spotted a few Sohma's along the way but the only ones that particularly caught her attention were the pair of students that sat on the sidewalk, one of whom seemed to have spilled contents of their lunch. Not only that but, it seemed it was beginning to rain. With a sigh she pulled over next to the pink-haired girl and the white-haired boy and rolled her window down, "Hey! You two get in, I'll drive you to school so you don't get too wet." After saying this the sound of the doors unlocking could be heard.

      Ren hadn't even noticed it'd started to rain until he felt the sky suddenly open up on him. Gasping, Ren stared up at the sky only to find it soon replaced by and umbrella. Turning around in curiosity, Ren found himself facing a very familiar pink haired girl.

      "Renny, why are you on the-" Ren saw Akihiko's eyes take in the spilled food around him. Awkwardly, Ren pulled on one of the curls coming out from under his hat as he chuckled. "Oh! That! Heh heh, it's ok. I was just testing to see if my lunch could holdout if I fell! It failed...I'm so very disappointed in you lunch...".

      Shaking his head in mock disappointment, Ren looked up to see Akihiko reaching her hand out to him with a smile on her lips. "Come on. Let's walk to school together, okay? You can share my lunch. I packed extra. I have a feeling that this was going to happen," Ren chuckled as he looked up at her, "I guess you know me to well. You even know when my annual lunchbox strength test is!" He looked up at her with his usual toothy grin on his face, not even noticing the water soaking into his pants. "Come on, Renny. If you don't stand up, you're going to catch a cold, and then we'll both be out of school because I'll be stuck at home giving you soup," Ren just playfully pouted as he crossed his arms "But I like soup! Plus, then we could spend the whole day together!" Throwing his arms up into the air he laughed as he watched Akihiko move her hand closer to him. Alright Aki! But tomorrow you have to make me soup! I'm craving it now..." Ren chuckled as he took Akihiko's hand and stood up.

      Seeing someone run past the two, Ren looked up to see Turi running past. Grinning, Ren stepped forward as waved wildly at the cat's retreating form as he yelled, "Good morning, Turi!" Ren had never fully understood why people hated the cat so much, and despite the whole stereotypical dogs hate cats thing, Ren didn't hate her. Sure she could definently lighten up a bit, but really Ren had decided long ago that he'd be nice to everyone, hated or not.

      Turning back to Akihiko, Ren frowned. Aki! I thought I told you not to wear your uniform this year! Ren had never worn his school uniform in the two years he's been in high school. It wasn't so much a rebellious thing, he just simply didn't like the dull and boring colors. The teachers had long ago stopped asking him to wear his uniform and Ren had been trying to get his pink haired friend to ditch her uniform forever!

      Hearing a car pull up next to them, Ren turned in time to see one of the older Sohma's calling out to them. "Hey! You two get in, I'll drive you to school so you don't get too wet." Grinning at the tiger, Ren turned to his Akihiko, "We'll have to talk about this later. Now-" grabbing his friend's hand he ran towards the car, "hurry or we'll be late!" Opening the car door for Akihiko, Ren playfully bowed.

      Turi Sohma

      Damn it. Damn it all. The dog had seen her and shouted her name for all to hear. He was cheerful enough waving at her but that didn't stop Turi from feeling complete disgust at him. No one acted like that around her but her dad. He must be faking it.

      Brushing her damp hair from her face she turned on her heels to face them. 'Don't yell my name out you stupid mutt!' Her arms were crossed over the frills of her apron and her glare was deadly. She probably would of said more if a car didn't pull up.

      The Tigers voice rang from the vehicle causing Turi to pause. Of all her cursed family she hated the tiger the least. It may be the attitude she carried or the fact a tiger was a feline like her, Turi didn't really know. Instead she watched the dog pull the pink haired girl to the car. It must be nice to have a car but everything Turi needed was in walking distance so she saw no need to get one. But shelter from the rain would of been nice.

      Turi must if looked pitiful. She was soaked to the bone and her apron had lost all the frill due to the rain. Not to mention her hair was plastered to the side if her face and she was already shivering. She really really regreted not bringing a umbrella.

      "Life is whatever you make it out to be. And I make mine into a rainbow."





      It was a while before Gengaku joined her at the table, but she wasn't worried about him falling asleep again. The man had cursed her name, but at least he was awake and there was no way he would be getting back to sleep after the cold water she had dumped on him.

      Smirking again, Callista glanced up as Gengaku joined her. Pointing a yolk-smeared fork at his face, she nodded at the TV.

      "Did you see this? There was a four-car pileup on the street that my bakery is on. Apparently four people were seriously injured and one even died," she said, completely ignoring his question, as per norm for her. Moving her coffee mug in a circle, she sipped at it, inhaling the aroma deeply.

      It was only once she had finished her food that she answered his question.

      "Well, you seem to have forgotten a certain promise you made me in exchange from me to come to your restaurant, kuk*," she said, rolling her eyes. "You promised to help me at the bakery today since I'm short on staff and I need to get some cleaning done, and since this is the only day that isn't the weekend that I don't have any classes and you're off, we can only do it today. Besides, we planned this last week, so it's not like I caught you off-guard - and you know what time I have to get to the bakery - cafe - whatever you want to call it - in order to bake all of the food, make all of the coffee and tea, prepare all of the sandwiches, and ... Well ... Get all of our food and drink products together," she said. She leaned over and tapped his nose with another eye roll.

      Pushing herself to her feet, she gathered her dirty plate and looked down at him, completely oblivious to the view that he undoubtedly would have up her baggy t-shirt. Narrowing her eyes down at him, she focused in on his face. "And don't even think about skipping out on me, because you made a promise - and a promise is a promise," she snapped, already moving towards the kitchen.

      It didn't take her long to wash her dishes and head to her room to shower and change. She soon returned with a towel wrapped around her body, moved over to his side, and glowered down at him.

      "Gengaku, get your lazy ass moving. We need to leave in .." She glanced over at the clock on the wall, her eyes flashing open. "Ten minutes!" she squeaked out, turning and rushing back to her bedroom.

      It took only five minutes for her to change into her jeans-shorts, tank top, and boots, and she was moving towards the door, purse, jacket, umbrella, and keys in hands.

      "Gengaku, come on! I'm going to leave, and it's not going to be without you - so either you come fully dressed and willingly, or naked and against your own will," she shouted from the doorway.

      (*kuk = Dick)




      Akihiko Sohma

      "Just give me a sec - I was busy eating some food."





      When he finally took her hand, Akihiko helped to pull him to his feet. Her brows drew together. He was pushing himself far too much.

      Not very many people knew the true emotions that Ren felt, but Akihiko was one of them - mostly due to the fact that they had been best friends since they were babies. Born very closely together, they had been inseparable since birth, especially since they were both Cursed. This of course had brought them together - and they both live alone, which wasn't rare, but it was another thing that they had had in common.

      Shaking her head, she opened her mouth to speak, but was cut off as she was bumped from behind by someone rushing by. Glancing after the person, she frowned.

      How rude.

      "Hello Turi!"

      'Don't yell my name out you stupid mutt!"

      Her eyes instantly hardened. She had never had a problem with the cat, and in fact had tried to befriend her - only to be rejected. She had recovered, but ever since then, the young woman had been nothing but outright rude to her. She didn't mind, however, because she was used to it, but for her to be rude to Ren, when all he had done was called a friendly hello to her, pissed her off.

      Her eyes narrowing, Aki shoved her things into Ren's hands, completely ignoring Suzu as she offered them a ride. Striding down the wet sidewalk, she practically threw the umbrella into Turi's hands.

      "You can be as much of a bitch as you want to me, but the next time that I hear you utter a single rude word to Ren-chan, I'm going to make sure you regret it. I don't care if you've had a shitty life - we all have. You aren't the only one who has suffered because of this damned curse. So stop acting like a pussy and taking your attitude out on anyone and everyone who tries to be nice to you."

      "Now have a nice, God damned day, you bitch," she snapped, turning and storming off through the rain, completely ignoring the fact that she was instantly soaked.

      When she reached the car, she grabbed Ren's arm and yanked him inside it after her, took her bag and the lunch that she planned to share with him, and settled both in her lap. She snapped on her seatbelt before leaning forward between to the two front seats.

      "Thank you for the offer for the ride, Niisan," she said. Dropping back into her seat, she turned to Ren and dropped her hand down onto his wet hair.

      "Hey, don't push yourself okay?" she said quietly, her eyes holding his. "If you aren't happy, than you can tell me. Don't push yourself to put on a happy face. I know you well enough to know when you're lying and when you're upset. So don't pretend around me, okay Renny?" she finished, brushing his bangs from his face. She leaned back from him and face forward, smiling at Suzu. "So what's on your To-Do list today?"

      "Hey! You two get in, I'll drive you to school so you don't get too wet." Grinning at the tiger, Ren turned to his Akihiko, "We'll have to talk about this later. Now-" grabbing his friend's hand he ran towards the car, "hurry or we'll be late!"

      Suzu Sohma

      Oh Lord. Suzu sighed and pinched the bridge of her nose as she watched Aki shout and all but assault Turi before shoving an umbrella into the girl's hands. She could understand Aki's frustration and anger considering Turi's usual rude nature but blowing up like that certainly wasn't cool. Then again, she was just a child, things like that are to be expected. Regardless, once the pink-haired girl had plopped down inside the car she shot her a rather serious look through the rear view mirror, ignoring her question for the time being.

      Once her two passengers were seated and buckled in Suzu rolled forward slowly before coming to a stop near Turi. She glanced to the girl's side for a moment, uncertain of what exactly to say and not wishing to carry on the awkward air that lingered after her tussle with Aki. "Hey, uh, make sure you dry off well when you get to work so you don't get sick and... If it's still raining like this when you get off, gimme a call alright? I'll give you a ride back home." She briefly glanced to the back of her car at Aki, "And try not to mind her too much, she's just a kid after all." Suzu's lips curled into a small smirk as she looked back to Turi, "Anyways, try and have a good one Turi, I'll talk you later." With that done she gave the dark-haired girl a quick wave before rolling up her window and carrying on to school.

      A minute or so later Suzu glanced up into her rear-view mirror to look at Aki for a moment. "I know you were just trying to stand up for your friend and all but, you went a little too far there you know? You let yourself act all nasty like that and you're no better than the person who you're being nasty to. Does no one any good to respond to unpleasantness with unpleasantness, everybody loses in that case." She wasn't even at school yet and she was already giving lectures.

      Ren stared in shock as Akihiko yelled at Turi. Sure, Ren had seen Aki mad hundreds of times before, but it still never ceased to surprise him how hostile she could be when the pink haired girl was always so sweet to him. Ren felt himself frown as he watched the scene unfold before him. Ren should be the one that stood up for Aki, not the other way around! Ren sighed he was a sorry excuse of a man (well as much of a man as a 15 year-old can be). Ren flinched a little at the harsh words spewing from his best friends mouth, he'd have to remember to make her put money in the cussing jar after school was finished.

      Seeing Akihiko shove her umbrella into Turi's hands and stock towards the car, Ren felt relief at knowing it was over. As the girl pulled Ren into the car he felt himself glance over at his now soaking friend. "Hey, don't push yourself okay?" she said quietly, her eyes holding his. "If you aren't happy, than you can tell me. Don't push yourself to put on a happy face. I know you well enough to know when you're lying and when you're upset. So don't pretend around me, okay Renny?" A small smile lifted Ren's lip as he nodded.

      Reaching down, Ren rummaged through his school bag until he found what he was looking for. Pulling out the jacket Ren'd packed incase he got cold, he turned to Akihiko and grinned. "Enough worrying about me! Your the one who always gets sick, look at you all soaking wet! Now if you come down with a cold, I'll be the one making the soup, and we both know what a horrible cook I am!" Chuckling a bit, Ren reached over and used his jacket to dry his friend's hair. Wrapping his jacket around Aki's shoulders when he was down, Ren reached up and pulled his hat he'd been wearing off, shaking out his wet hair in the process. Pulling the hat over his friend's head, he chuckled as he pulled it down all the way over her eyes.

      Taking Aki's hands in his own, he rubbed them together to bring the warmth back to their fingertips as he listened to the older Sohma's lecture to Akihiko. It was his turn to stand up for her, "It's really not her fault. It's mine for provoking Turi, Akihiko was just being a good friend..." Looking over at his friend he smiled, "Maybe to good a friend," he added with a chuckle.

      Ren's eye's widened as he looked at the older woman sitting in the drivers seat, "Oh! I almost forgot! Thanks for the ride, and sorry for getting your backseat all wet...if you'd like I can clean your car for you after school's finished." Smiling at the woman through the rearview mirror, Ren still unconsciously grasped Aki's hands in his own.

      "I haven't eaten in ten minutes. I think I might be dying of hunger ..."





      Akihiko narrowed her eyes at the older woman, her lips curling up a bit at the ends. While she admired the woman, she didn't appreciate being berated by her for merely looking out for her closest and best friend - and honestly, one of her only friends, too.

      "I get that you might be older than me, and that you're a teacher and all, but I'm not your student and I'm not a little kid. I might act like one sometimes, but I don't appreciate being lectured over me defending my friend. That stupid cat has been nothing but trouble since the very beginning and everyone knows that. She has no right to treat Renny like that and I'll be damned if I'll just sit back and let her," she snapped, sneering at the woman through the rear-view mirror.

      "Enough worrying about me! You're the one who always gets sick, look at you all soaking wet! Now if you come down with a cold, I'll be the one making the soup, and we both know what a horrible cook I am!"

      Aki had only just turned her face towards Ren's when her head was overcome by a jacket. It enveloped her hair and moved around it before dropping over her shoulders, and she had barely enough time to pat down her frizzy excuse of hair before a hat was pulled down, blinding her as it went over her eyes.

      It's really not her fault. It's mine for provoking Turi. Akihiko was just being a good friend. Maybe too good a friend ... Oh! I almost forgot! Thanks for the ride, and sorry for getting your backseat all wet...if you'd like I can clean your car for you after school's finished."

      Lifting her hand from where it was caught between Ren's, she pulled up the hat that Ren had pulled over her head, peaking out from beneath it. "You didn't provoke her, she's just a bitch," she said simply, raising a brow.

      It was then that they finally pulled up to the school and the car stopped. Ushering Ren out of the car, she clambered out after him.

      "Thanks for the ride," she said, her voice a bit cold as she shut the door. Pulling the hat completely up from her eyes, she waved at Suzu as they took shelter under the canopy hanging over the walkway to the school. "Let's walk to class together, Ren!" she said cheerily, linking her arm through his.





      Callista Nroiji

      "You should see what I see. Do you want to trade eyes?"







      "Ahahaha... As tempting as that sounds, I think I'll just clean... Besides, Gengaku would probably kill me if I so much as touched you."

      Watching him walk to the window, she straightened and crossed her arms over her chest, a slight pout appearing on her lips.

      "Well, don't I feel unwanted and rejected," she scoffed out, moving behind the counter and opening the register. Parting her lips to ask Kaze a question, she was stopped by an abrupt onslaught of customers.

      ~'.'~Short Time Skip~'.'~

      Collapsing into a chair, Callista pulled a napkin from the center piece of the table and tossed it over her eyes.

      "Jeez, who knew running a store on your own could be so difficult ..." she groaned, slumping down in the chair so that she was nearly laying across it. She peaked out from under the napkin and focused an eye on Kaze. "Hey. Do you want a job? I could use the help and I can afford to hire an extra hand around here. Gengaku can't be here all the time," she said.

      Frowning a bit, Calli felt tears threaten behind her lids. It really wasn't fair. She was left alone in the world, with very few people to call friends, and no one to call family. So she couldn't really call on someone to help her out on a daily basis, but instead was forced to look for someone to hire.

      Not that she would mind having Kaze around, even if he was being paid to be so. Granted he had classes, but so did she, and a lot of his classes went during her off-time, and her classes went during his. So it would actually work perfectly to have him work at the store, since they could trade off and on in between classes.

      Sitting up suddenly, she raised both of her brows. "Oh! That reminds me. What was that that you mumbled about Gengaku earlier? I heard you say that he would kill you, but I missed the second part. Care to share?" she asked.

      When this gained no response, she jumped up from the chair and crossed over to him, smirking down at him. "Either you tell me or I'll make you tell me," she warned.

      "''Years of love have been forgot .... In the hatred of a minute ...' Edgar Allan Poe."





      "... Getting out sooner or later, so we can stick to who we know is home."

      Tomaya blinked her eyes open and sat up abruptly. Her eyes darted around the room in an effort to get her bearings, and when she realized where she was, she relaxed a bit. She hadn't even realized that she had fallen asleep, to be honest.

      "It's settled. We're are going to see Miyako."

      Turning her attention to Yamato, her lips turned down into a frown.

      "Yamato, you shouldn't leave bed," she said, attempting to quickly leave the bed. Instead, she found her legs tangled in the sheets, causing her to fall face-first from the bed and collide loudly with the floor of the room. Grimacing, she untangled herself and sat up, rubbing at her face. Instinctively she knew that her nose would be swollen, but she pushed herself up as quickly as possible and crossed the room.

      "Yamato, stop," she demanded, moving between him and the door, her arms spread wide to halt any attempt to exit the room. Her expression was stern and her eyes set. "You know as well as I do that with that cough you can't afford to go anywhere. If you do, I can't guarantee that you won't grow more ill."

      Reaching out to grab his arm, she looked up at him with an odd desperation in her gaze. "Please, Yamato, don't go outside. It isn't safe for you. And ... And we can't live without you," she said quietly, tears glittering in her eyes.

      Ren pouted as Aki pulled her hand free of his as she pulled his hat up so her eyes could peek out. Reaching over, Ren took a piece of her frizzy pink hair between his fore finger and thumb, twirling it absentmindedly as he listened to his friend's response.

      "You didn't provoke her, she's just a bitch," Wrinkling his small nose, the boy pulled the piece of hair trapped between his fingers sharply before scolding her. "That's double the money you have to put in the cursing jar, Aki! Keep this up and I'll be rich by the end of the month!" He couldn't help but poke her in the ribs as he playfully stuck his tongue out.

      When the car pulled up to the school, Aki ushered Ren out, causing him to stumble a little as his feet made contact with the wet concrete. As the boy and his friend ran for cover from the rain, Ren turned his head to look back at the car and waved cheerfully at the older Sohma. "Bye! Thanks again for the ride!"

      Ren hadn't noticed the coldness in his friend's voice as she'd addressed the tiger, Akihiko was probably the only person who Ren believed to be completely innocent and harmless. Being friends practically since birth tends to do that to a person. Aki could slap Ren straight in the face and he'd just write it off as an accident. It never acquired to Ren how naïve he was with Aki, it was just somehow relieving to have someone to trust and confine in when you trusted little to no one else.

      "Let's walk to class together, Ren!" Grinning at the pink haired girl, Ren happily linked arms with her as they walked toward the school.

      Ren and Aki had shared the same class every year in their school lives. Mostly thanks to the fact that even if Ren had been placed in a different class, he'd make sure that he was switched to the one his friend was in. Walking into school, Ren grinned at the people who walked by and waved happily to the people he knew. Still keeping his arms linked with Aki's, Ren turned to the girl and smiled, "Aren't you excited? It's the first day of school and we aren't new this year! Although, thinking about it, I'll probably still end up lost..." Looking around the halls, Ren couldn't help but sheepishly scratch his head as he smiled warily at his friend.
