Chiyoko rolled out of bed and landed on the floor. She yelped and rubbed her head.
"Itai..."she grumbled, rubbing her eyes. She yawned, stretching and fixed her long night shirt and shorts. "Sakura-san?"
"In the kitchen!" Sakura called back. Chiyoko stood up and headed out of the room, towards the kitchen.
Sakura smiled at her, putting food on the kitchen ledge. Chiyoko sat down on a stool at the ledge, Sakura doing the same
"Mata ne Sakura-chan." said Sakura's mom as she came out of her room. She had long blonde, almost white, hair and bright
green eyes and was dressed in a blue two piece business suit. She waved at Sakura, who waved back and left. Chiyoko blinked
and shrugged, digging into her breakfast.
"So what are we gonna do now?" asked Chiyoko as she pulled on her fishnet top. Sakura shrugged.
"Shopping?" she asked. Chiyoko rolled her eyes and sighed, nodding. Sakura squealed, grabbing her purse. Chiyoko riffled
through her bag for her wallet, grabbed it and put it in her pocket. Sakura grabbed her hand, pulling her towards the door.
"Iee!" said Chiyoko, pulling her hand away and grabbing her make-up bag. "Make-up first!" She went into the bathroom
and began to put on her goth make-up.
When she came, out she saw Sakura wearing black hiking boots, black skirt, black cut off at the shoulder sweater, over
a black sleeveless high neck t-shirt, a studded collar, black nylons, black eye-makeup, black lips and black nails.
"Kuso..." said Chiyoko, her mouth hanging open. Sakura shrugged, blushing and pointed at the door.
Chiyoko and Sakura went into a goth shop, downtown and looked around.
"Watashi ha nande motono tasuke temoyoika?" asked the store clerk. Sakura and Chiyoko both shook their heads, no and
continued looking around.
"Oi..." said Chiyoko, nudging Sakura with her arm.
"Nani?" Chiyoko pointed at a pair of silver haired twins. Sakura's jaw dropped.
"Holy hell...he's hott." she mumbled, staring at the male.
"His sis ain't to bad either." said Chiyoko. (A/N: YES AIN'T IS IN THE DICTIONARY! GO LOOK IT UP!) Sakura and Chiyoko
giggled. The twins looked at them and then walked over to them.
"Konnichiwa." said Chiyoko, bowing her head.
"Konnichiwa." they said. Sakura nodded at them, still blushing.
"Umiki Chiyoko des."
"Kokoroki Sakura des."
"Hinojigoku Yuuko des." said the girl.
"Hinojigoku Yoki des." said the boy.
"You two seem to be the most unlikely pair to be shopping here." said Chiyoko, crossing her arms.
"From Kyoto?" asked Sakura. Her, Chiyoko, Yuuko, and Yoki were sitting at a table outside a café, drinking coffee and
tea(Chiyoko) and eating bagels.
"Hai." answered Yuuko.
"So when do you start school?" asked Chiyoko.
"Tomorrow." answered Yoki. "Dakedo...we don't know where." Sakura nodded and finished off her coffee.
"More shopping?" she asked. Chiyoko nodded and looked at Yuuko and Yoki.
"Sure." the both answered.
"TAXI!" yelled Sakura. Chiyoko chuckled as one drove right past her.
"Here." said Chiyoko, as she stood in front of her, put her fingers to her lips and whistled. "OI TAXI!" One screeched
to a stop right in front of them, Sakura muttering a few choice words as they got in.
"Tired?" asked Sakura as Chiyoko cracked her neck. Chiyoko nodded and then yelped, pulling out a cellphone from her back
"Moshi-moshi Umiki Chiyoko des."
"Where are you?"
"headed back to Sakura-san's place...why?"
"Come back here...and quick."
"Kojiki-san just came here and he's hurt, BAD."
"NANI?!" she gasped. "We'll be right there!" She turned off her cellphone and put it back in her pocket.
"Nani?" asked Sakura.
"Toru-kun's been hurt." she answered as she leaned forward and told the cab driver the new address.
