I buttoned the front of my crisp white, dress shirt and glanced at the mirror. I pulled at my long hair making a messy ponytail, tying a ribbon expertly in it's place. I touched my golden necklace and stared at the photograph at the frame of my mirror. It was a picture of Hisao and I. My bang's fell over my eye's as I stared at the picture. Hisao... I felt myself begin to panic. Here I was...on my way to that damned school... For Kaoru. Someone I barely knew. I gritt my teeth and looked down as I felt something rub against my leg. I smiled and picked up Prince, snuggling him close to my face, feeling him purr silently. "...I missed you to little guy...," I murmered and he blinked at me, meowing sweetly. He shut his eye's slowly and yawned. He looked adorable, like a little snowball with his fluffy, white hair. I set him down on my bed and kissed him quickly before running out of my room.
I dashed across the empty apartment, not looking back as I shut the front door abruptly. I ran down a flight of stair's and my feet made harmony with the sidewalk. A breif image of Hisao passed through my struggling thought's. I didn't know what to do... What do I do? "Megumi!" A voice shouted. I stopped suddenly and whipped around to see Haruhi helplessly trying to catch up to me. I stood and watched as she ran ungracefully to me, she panted as she stood in front of me. When she regained her breath, she flashed me that perfect smile, and held her hand out to me. I gave her a cold look and turned away, walking forward. She followed after me and walked beside me in silence. "You look pretty today...," Haruhi mumbled awkwardly. "Thank's," I breathed bored.
"...so...do you live in the same apartment as I do?" Haruhi asked turning her head to the side and looking at me. I twitched and looked to the side, "I hope not..." She nodded, "Want to walk to school together...?" She asked pulling at her short hair. "...whatever...," I sighed. Honestly I had no damn intention of returning to that freaking school, much less walk with a transvestite... but... I had to. It was my obligation to serve my master. And my master happened to be Kaoru. As Haruhi and I stood in front of the golden gate's of Ouran Academy, I found myself thinking of Hisao...
Hisao's pov: I bit my lip as the Headmaster kicked me sharply in the stomach. "...you should be ashamed of yourself...you break the rule's...you are punished!" He growled flicking out a thick knife. "...how dreadful...you are one of my favorite student's Hisao...your a good boy...that's why you killed that boy...," He grinned. I shook my head quickly, bile rising in my throat. I didn't want to... I didn't mean... Tear's fell over my eye's and a grunt ecscaped my lip's as he drove the knife into my side. I blinked back the tear's and breathed raggedly, persperation at my forehead. "...I could kill you...," The Headmaster hissed. I stilled, looking at the ground tiredly. "...noone would care of your death...your mother and father, are dead. Am I correct?" He whispered in my ear. I didn't answer and he chuckled. "...and your dear sister...she has cancer right? How is she?" He asked. I glared up at him. "Don't talk about Minori...," I whispered in pain.
"...she's dying isn't she? Tell me, she's only eight right? What a shame...," He stated coldly. I curled my hand's into fist's and let out a scream, connecting my fist with his damned jaw. I backed away afraid as he rubbed his jaw. I prepared myself to be stabbed to death, when he placed his hand's on my shoulder's. "...Hisao...she doesn't have to die...neither does Megumi...," He told me quietly. Megumi... "...I want you to chose Hisao. Either you die...right here...and never see your dear sister or Megumi ever again, and belive me...I'll make sure they die...," He hissed. He smiled then, like a long, lost friend... "Or you could work for me...and I'll personally make sure Minori and Megumi are safe." I stared in horror. "Choose quickly...," He sighed.
It was my life against their's...
...but they were the only reason I lived...
"...I'll do it...," I whispered.
Megumi's pov: I watched as my new classmate's got up and walked out of the classroom to the dining hall. I remained seated, taking out my notebook as the classroom emptied. I reached in my black schoolbag and pulled out white headphone's. As I put them on, I caught glimpse of Haruhi standing by the door, waving smally at me. I tried my best not to frown. She was begining to irritate me. I watched as she awkwardly walked over to me, sitting at the desk in front of me. I glanced out large window that took up most of the wall, showing the school garden. Haruhi took out a paperbag and pulled out a simple sandwich, biting into it absentmindedly. I eye'd her as she stared at me.
I watched as her lip's moved, as If saying something. I slid my headphone's to my neck, rock music still playing. "Sorry, what?" I mumbled. "I just wanted to say you had pretty eye's," She stated handing me half of her sandwich. I trustfully took it and mumbled a, "Thank's, but that's not true." She looked at me confused,"Why do you say that? They are really nice...You have really pretty green eye's." I laughed humorlessly, "I hate my eye's." Haruhi shook her head and took a sip of water. "I like your eye's," I muttered, "They're familiar..." Haruhi glanced at me and I cursed myself for being nice to her.
All of the sudden, Tamaki was running in the classroom, attacking Haruhi. She choked as he held her. Kyoya walked in, sighing. "Megumi...I knew you'd return...," Kyoya muttered. Bastard. "I came at my own will," I replied coldly. I was about to bite into an apple when Kyoya pulled my arm and dragged me to the hall. "What the-," He cut me off. "Megumi you're in danger," He whispered. "What?" I replied bewilerdly. "You're not safe...," He pressed on. I shook his hand off of my arm and set my gaze. "You don't worry," I replied softly.
"...Megumi...," A voice said softly behind me. I turned to see Kaoru, an unsure smile on his face. I blinked, unmoving and Hikaru pushed past Kaoru, smirking at me. "I want a rematch. I'm tired of telling people I got beat up by a girl. More or less a little one," He muttered. I grabbed his arm, twisting it quickly. "Baka! Apologize now!" I yelled. He struggled, tear's bursting from his eye's, "I'm sorry! Let go! Kaoru! Help me! Please!" He begged. Kaoru sighed, "Let him go Megumi..." Instinctively, I obeyed, my master. I silently prayed he wouldn't realise I would do anything he say's...
Hikaru rubbed his arm and stared at me intently. As everyone walked on out of the classroom, Hikaru grabbed my arm. I lifted my fist as if to punch him and he jumped. "No! Stop! I just wanted to say something!" He pleaded. "What!" I growled. He smiled and grabbed my shoulder's, kissing my cheek quickly. "...you're pretty...," He mumbled and winked at me before running for his dear life. "BAKA!" I screamed running after him.
I didn't realise Kaoru was watching.
Or that I was this close to death.
