"Hmmmmm~... I think something like 7 years since then." Yuuko replied, thinking alot about various factors in the process.
"Thanks, for being there for me. You know... I tell you I died, but if you ask my family what happened to me, they will say that I disappeared one day. Thats because nothing could be found after I was turned into a ghost. Maybe I'm still treated as 'lost', and not as 'dead'. Thats one of the reasons I wanted to do the exchange - so I could return to my family, if they were still there, waiting for me. Thats why I'm still worried about them... Ah, by the way, whats your name? 'Flower' was the shape of your pendant, but you have a real name, don't you?" Then, Hideki appeared, cutting Yuuko's 'speech'. Who knows, maybe if he didn't appear, she would continue.

"Yea, everything is allright, in fact, a good thing happened; As you can see, I'm able to stand again. You see, someone took me to the nurse, and there I waited and I was able to stand again a few minutes before she came to pick me up. that old hag, she got what she deserved, hehehe... How's it going with you?"

"I hope that they're still there... waiting for you," Himawari said with sincerity. She didn't show it, but she was a bit worried. She understood the possibility of her family moving on after the pain of losing her. Or them having to leave because of whatever reason. Life always held surprises, but she hoped that this one would be a good one for Yuuko.

Then, when realizing that she hadn't introduced herself, she gasped. "Oh! I can't believe that I haven't--my name's Himawari. It's a pleasure to meet you, Yuuko," she introduced herself after some mumblings & stutters with a smile.


"Well, it's good that you can walk again," Hideki mentioned with a small grin. Then, he turned to Himawari & asked, "aren't you supposed to be headed to class, too? Oh & by the way, where are the others?"

"You're right! I still have to go to Physical Education. I can't believe I forgot. & about the others, I'm not entirely sure..."

"Nice to meet you too, Himawari." Yuuko replied, then stopped, remembering something about her parents. She did listen to the little conversation between Himawari and Hideki.
"Maybe they are going to Physical Education too...? I think we shoud head there anyway..." She asked, taking a wild guess.

Meanwhile, Riyu and Sherry were really heading for Physical Education, although not there yet.
"Say, Sherry, do you know where any of the other people who were with us then went?" Riyu said, walking with his hands behind his head, as if he was carefree.
"No, I didn't see where they went... Do you think something happened to them?" Sherry asked, starting to worry.
"I'm not saying something really did happen to them, but that Yuuko disappearing from her place... in the dirt... , and their disappearance, seem rather suspicious."
"Hey hey, you're killing them again!! Cut it out, don't even joke about it!"
"I did say that I didn't say that something happened to them, didn't I...?"
"Wait, I lost you, what did you say...?"

Hideki nodded & began to walk in the direction he had been heading to a while back with the two girls. It was whilst he walked that he remembered something: he hadn't introduced himself yet. After everything that they'd gone through, names had been the least of their worries. However, now that everything seemed to have settled down some, he figured that he might as well give his name.

"By the way, my name's Hideki," the handsome young man introduced himself with a grin as the three of them were only feet away from the entrance of the gym.

"N-Nice to meet you too. Oh my, I've just returned, and this many friends already~" Yuuko said, surprised from herself. However, Riyu just had to ruin it.
"Hey, ghost! You made us worry, you know that?! Don't smile just yet!"
After him, Sherry was running too, releived to see the others weren't hurt.
"Riyu! Glad you three are safe... Riyu, was that really necesarry, not letting her even feel better after what... whatever happened to her?"
"Yes, it was necesarry, for she almost scared me to death twice in one day... I'm not really showing it though."
"Hey, what's your problem with me!! You make me want to kill you again, watch it, I tell you... Whats in the past is bound to be forgotten, no?!"
"That was less than 2 hours ago..." Riyu claimed the obvious.
Sherry sweated a little, and said: "Well, what he's saying has a point..."

Himawari smiled when Riyu & Sherry made their way towards them. She was glad to see them despite barely knowing them. However, because they all had been through a lot, she figured that they were more than strangers already. She wondered why Yuuko at Riyu didn't get a long well, or maybe it was just another friendship that grew with jokes & playful words. She certainly hoped so, because she didn't know if she could stand having both of them bicker at one another.

The rest of school went by fast, just like any other ordinary school day. Like nothing had happened--although she remembered everything. The rest of her classmates went through their day without much trouble, whilst she thought & thought about certain things. In turn, she was glad when the bell rang & the last class ended. Himawari stood up from her seat, smoothed out her skirt & stretched--riding her body from the tiredness of the long day. Then, she grabbed her things & walked out after putting her seat back in place.

"Himawari~" Yuuko said when Himawari left the building. She was outside, by the door, all that time, bored. If it wasn't for Himawari and all the excitement in 'life', she wouldn't be that bored though.
"What do you want, ghost?" Riyu asked, smiling.
"No one asked YOU, and why do you insist on calling me ghost?"
"Because you WERE one a couple of hours ago..."
"Oh now you've done it! I'm going to beat you fair and square sometime! Count me as your rival! Now, the name of my rival is...?"
"Riyu... Good luck for YOU though... 'Rival'..." Riyu said, smiling again. The wierd fact is, that the second time he smiled, Yuuko did too.
"Anyway, Himawari, Do you want to come to my house today with me? I want to see what it looks like now." Yuuko asked, excited about her return home.

Himawari smiled upon seeing Yuuko. She stood beside her as Riyu & her had a 'dispute' & was glad to notice that both of them seemed to just like to argue for the fun of it. It was a fun scene to watch after realizing that, but she wondered how long they would continue to do that. For as long as they would know one another?

Her cute smile returned when Yuuko asked her to go home with her. She too was curious about how it looked. Not only because of the years that had gone by, but because she was curious to know what kind of house Yuuko had grown up in. "Yeah, of course ~" Himawari chimed with a nod.


Hideki walked through the halls of the school with his phone pressed against his ear. He carried his book & binders with one arm whilst one of his friends held open his backpack so he could put everything in. All the while, he spoke to his mother, whom had just informed him that she would be leaving to Europe with his father for two weeks because of a fashion show she needed to attend. In turn, he would have the house all to himself.

The young man wasn't surprised, since traveling sometimes came with the territory of being a fashion designer. He didn't mind. Hideki was a grown man, he could take care of himself & he knew that his parents loved him. So, he told his mother & father to have a safe trip & to bring him something awesome from that part of the world. Then, he hung up--just in time to see Riyu, Himawari & Yuuko talking at the front entrance. He grinned, waved his friend goodbye & walked to them.

"Hey, guys. What's up?"

"Ya~y!" Yuuko said, very happy about Himawari's decision. However, it was kind of wierd. She was sure her life was over, yet she is now rebuilding it from the very foundations... Friends, and bonds.

"Ah, Hideki. We're going to my house today~" Yuuko claimed happily. "And guess what, I still remember its location, and school is over for today, I'm excited." There were mixed feelings in that sentence. From one side, there was the obvious - excitement. But from the other side... Yuuko really did worry about her parents. Yuuko hoped for the best, as she leaded the way. She went outside the gate, and looked at the street and the school name. "Oh, I think my house is even close enough for walking, how lucky~"

At the last moment, Sherry appeared, running towards the reformed group.

"W-Wait for meeee!" She said, resting a bit from the running. "Sorry, I've had a few things to take care of at school... But now I'm ready. Where are you going...?"

"To Yuuko's house." Riyu said. This time there was no taunt intended for Yuuko. "Ah... well, I'll go too. It makes me curious."

Himawari smiled at Yuuko's happy expression & continued to let it linger on her lips after sensing the mixed feelings she had attached with the rest of her words. She had never been in such a position, but she understood that it should be pretty nerve-wrecking to be in her situation. Who wouldn't be? In turn, she was glad that they were all with her.

She followed after Yuuko with the others & let her gaze wander about the neighborhood. She'd heard Yuuko mention that it was relatively close to their school, so she wondered which house it could be. Was their house middle-class or up a level, like hers? "I'm curious, too," Himawari smiled towards Sherry, who had joined them.


Hideki followed after the others when they mentioned their plan to go with Yuuko to her house. He had nothing to do for the rest of the day except go home & catch up on some classes, so he went with them. However, even if he had something going on, he would have gone anyway. He figured that their new friend would need as much support as possible in case... anything went wrong.

He turned around when hearing a familiar voice & smiled at realizing that it was Sherry. "You wanna come with?"

"Y-Yea, I'll come too, I guess..." Sherry said, a little bit hesitating.
"Then hurry up; You'll fall behind~" Said Yuuko, who was already out of the gate. She was quick, and the curiousity already began to kill her. However, a bit of patience could be found by the fact that she didn't run, and waited for them.

((Sorry it's short, but we're not that far from the end. The first hint of the ending is here.))

Himawari & Hideki continued to walk after Sherry agreed to going with them. They didn't run after Yuuko despite her quickening her pace & were glad that she had slowed down to wait for them. It was obvious that she was unbelievably curious & she couldn't hold it anymore.

"Its... heeere~! Thats the street where I lived before I- umm... you know what..." Yuuko said, lowering her voice after realizing what she was going to shout. It wasn't a long walk, but it wasn't short either. It was the oldest street in the neighborhood, one of the first since the place was even called a neighborhood, 108 years in the past. Most of the houses were rebuilt in modern style, since they were to collapse if they were left alone. However, 4 houses were left untouched... Yuuko's house was one of them. From their place, it was the 6th house on the left. Yuuko began to speed up with her every step. However she was as quiet as a ghost...

"Hm, there are old houses in this street too..." Sherry said, looking at the surroundings.
"Its Yuuko's fault. Maybe they all became ghosts because of her." Riyu said, smiling.
"Y-You're killing people again! Cut it out I tell you..." Sherry replied, and sighed.
"Riyu, don't say wierd stuff; I'm not amused..."

((OOC: You caught me ^^' can you find what is similar between the 3 numbers in this post?))

Himawari looked about again as she let Yuuko guide her & the others. It didn't take long for her to realize that her neighborhood wasn't the one that they were at the moment. Her home wasn't as old as the ones she saw & for a single moment, she had a pouty expression. It would have been nice to live in the same neighborhood as her new friend, Yuuko.

"It's okay, we're here for you," the young woman replied to Yuuko's response to Riyu's words. She understood how nerve-wrecking the whole experience must be.


Hideki smiled a little nervously--not really knowing what to say. It was times like these that he wondered what ever happened to the 'normal times.' It was only hours before that his life only had a certain amount of excitement... "Let's be nice, huh?," he chuckled. "We've all been through a lot."

They were there, at the door of the old house. The sky was orange-red, as the sun began to set. Yuuko reached for the door, to discover a moment later, that the door wasn't even locked.
"I'm...home...? Mom...? Dad...?" She said, as she opened the door slowly. No voice could be heard; No response whatsoever; As if the house was really abandoned. There was a bit of dust in the house too.
"Strange... They aren't supposed to be out at a time like this..." Yuuko said, as she put off her shoes and entered the house.
"Really sounds too quiet..." Sherry whispered to Hideki. directly to Yuuko's left after she entered, was a room with its door open. It seemed like a storage room, except the fact that there was a rusted sword in the middle of the room, which was just layed there, with its sheath near it. The second strange thing, was that the 'rust', was actually the color of the cherry blossoms.
"Hm, I don't remember this room at all... Ah, I remembered! Every time I got close to that room, my father told me not to... Was it dangerous or what, I wonder...? Meh, I don't care; Only reminds me of the time I was a ghost anyway. Ugh..." Yuuko said, passing the room without closing the suspicious room's door.
"Where are they already~!? I'm starting to worry..." Yuuko's worries were justified, because the building had only one floor, although being large in area.

However, there was a thing she overlooked, there in the suspicious room... and it was a stain of blood, on the sword's sheath, and holding place. It was exactly the shape of the hand which held it... whoever held it...

Hideki & Himawari entered Yuuko's home carefully. They both looked around, noticing the light layer of dust atop of everything & the quietness the building held. It didn't really seem like a house that people lived in... & if so, then it was a house that was very much under kept. They both felt a sense of sadness upon realizing that the possibility of Yuuko's family not living there anymore had increased. Neither of them wanted anyone to go through such a thing.

They paused for a moment when Yuuko entered the mysterious room & looked at each other. Not only was the sword out of place, but there was a sense of oddity about the room. What caught Himawari's eyes the most was the color of the rust.

"...So thats the truth... huh..." Riyu said quietly. He closed his eyes gently, not beleiving what he deduced from the environment. He too, noticed that wierd looking sword in the mysterious room. He didn't really know what was behind that sword though, that only the dead knew... and Yuuko, although she didn't remember it specificly at the moment. At that time, Yuuko was very stressed. She didn't even think about her parents being dead, but on the other side, she didn't know what to think. She passed through the living room, and discovered that it too, had the same amount of dust, and no one was in there. The windows were closed, as well as the old curtains.
She just stood there, shocked, and didn't move an inch.
"Can you tell me... What should I do...?"

Sherry didn't know too. However, half of the truth was revealed then.

Yuuko didn't die 7 years ago, but 70. That house was abandoned not long ago, when her parents died from old age, that was also true, but they didn't know yet. At any rate, the ultimate truth was not something Yuuko could bear... Until Riyu saved her once again.

"Hey... I'm your rival, no? When will you fight me...? I'll tell you what you should do... and that is look towards the future! Sure, this house is no longer owned by anyone, or so I think, but you have US! Except that... we can't just forgive you by letting you just die from another heart attack..."

Yuuko just stood there, and didn't say a word. She just closed her eyes, and wished for a certain someone to come there. Not that her desired wish could come true, but she needed someone to be there for her.

Hideki's sweet & tender side emerged upon seeing Yuuko's expression. Despite barely knowing her, he wanted to hold her & make everything okay for her. However, upon thinking that, he realized, with Riyu's words, that all of them were there for her. She wasn't alone anymore & that brought slight relief to him simply because he knew that she would soon realize that herself.

With an apologetic smile on his face, Hideki walked towards Yuuko & placed his hand lightly atop her head. It was a gesture of kindness & support--the kind that an older brother would give to a younger sibling.


Soon there after, Himawari followed after the young man's footsteps & stood besides Yuuko. A sweet smiled curved her chaster lips for a brief moment before hugging her new friend, almost throwing herself at her. She'd gone under Hideki's arm & without disturbing him, she embraced Yuuko tightly. "Riyu's right," she whispered with a honeyed tone, "you have us. What should you do, you ask? Pray for your family's well-being in the Heavens--let them know you're back... & live with us."

Yuuko let out a big sigh out of her mouth. "I guess..." She then hugged Himawari tightly too, using one hand, and then started... to cry silently. 'Tear after tear; Tear after tear', but those were tears of joy. As they say: An end gives a new beginning.
"Hey... are you okay? Or did I say something wrong?" Riyu said, worried a bit.
"No... its nothing... You didn't say anything bad, its the opposite, I'm glad... that I have friends like you." She sniffed after that, and then the tears stopped.
The new beginning started; From here, there was only a way up. But making a way up, requires a tough ordeal, and that is... NOT to look back. Yuuko recognized this new, real ordeal, and was ready to take the burden. "Then, I made my mind... I want only to take one thing from here, and leave this place for good. I'll come back only if someone calls me here. She said, already decided what to take.

((Now, which ordeal is the final ordeal mentioned at the start of the roleplay again? :P))
