Saito Miyuki slowly sat up, pushing the blankets off of her, turning to glare at her laptop. She had fallen asleep while doing research for a school project, leaving the laptop running beside her head. An annoying ding rang throughout her room, much like the first one that woke her up.

Byakuran

Good morning Miyu-chan~

Miyuki glared at the screen; she was going to murder him, she thought as she ran a hand through her short hair, pushing the dark brown locks out of her face.

Miyuki

I'm going to turn off my laptop now, if you ever message me at 4:30am ever again I will find you and I will hurt you.

Byakuran

I believe I messaged you at 4:38am ^.^ sweet dreams Miyu-chan~

Miyuki

Zzzzzzzz

Miyuki is currently offline.

Miyuki rolled her green orbs smiling; she couldn't bring herself to be upset with him more than a few seconds. Shutting down her laptop she rolled over to get more sleep.


Three hours later, Miyuki found herself being poked repeatedly.

"Miyuki~ wake up! Mom told me to make sure you have breakfast since she won't be home to cook." She turned to glare at the young man leaning over her.

"Naohiko, I'm sure what mom meant is if I wake up, you should get me breakfast." Naohiko smiled down at his little sister.

"Well look at that! You just happen to be awake, let's go get breakfast."

She sat up, rubbing the sleep from her eyes. "Okay, fine. I'll be down stairs in a minute." Her voice was a mix of irritation and exhaustion. She watched her brother leave from the corner of her eye before pushing the purple comforter and sheets off her body.

After stumbling out of her bed she went to pull a pair of black shorts that reached her knees and a violet top from her closet. After taking off her pajamas she slipped into her clothes.

"Okay Nao-nii, let's go." Miyuki slid into her flip flops walking out the door before get brother could reply.


Miyuki silently ate her chocolate chip muffin while watching her brother. She knew that her mom would be upset that he had taken her to a coffee shop for breakfast instead of them cooking something healthy at home, but in her defense Akiko hadn't ever had to eat her son's cooking.

"So, Miyu-chan got any plans today?" His dark green eyes locked with his sister's.

"Shoichi is supposed to come over to help with a project for science that I'm having a bit of trouble with."
Naohiko frowned at that. "Your Onii-san came all the way here from Tokyo to see you, and you are going to hang out with someone you can see every day instead?"

Miyuki rolled her eyes; she really didn't have time to argue with him, she would be late meeting up with Shoichi if she did.

"Nao-nii you won't help me with it, you'll find some way to distract me and it'll end with me getting no work done. I'm leaving now." She stood up and turned to leave. Naohiko frowned watching his sister leave, he'd come from Tokyo to watch her while their parents were away, the least she could do was entertain him.


Walking through the park on her way home, Miyuki noticed two of her classmates walking as well.
"Tsuna-kun, while your blue boxers with rubber ducks are quite cute, I don't think you should be running around in them."
Miyuki smiled watching the boy's face turn bright red.

"Hiee; Miyu-chan!" Tsuna quickly attempted to cover himself.

"Haha, hey Miyu-chan! We were just playing mafia." Yamamoto turned smiling at her.

Miyuki smiled at the taller boy, though before she could respond, another voice joined.

"Baseball idiot this isn't a game!" Gokudera glared at the taller boy before him. He barely glanced at Miyuki before turning to Tsuna.

"Juudaime, here are your clothes" Miyuki laughed to herself picturing Gokudera with a tail wagging as he spoke to Tsuna.

"What are you laughing at Saito?" Gokudera growled, Miyuki took a step back, it wasn't her intention to upset the boy.

"I'm sorry Gokudera-san, I didn't exactly mean to laugh at you, I was just admiring your friendship with Tsuna." She spoke carefully not wanting to upset him more, before Gokudera could respond someone called out to Miyuki.

"Miyu~ how could you leave me like that? You aren't even going to meet up with-" Naohiko cut himself off and turned to the group with by his sister.
"Miyuki," he started off voice sounding grave, "You aren't friends with this boy are you? He seems like a bad influence, I mean who runs around in only their boxers?" Naohiko didn't really know what to think of the younger boy before him, did his sister hang out with people like that?

Miyuki understood her brother was only worried about her, I mean it wasn't every day you see someone running around in their boxers. However the thought that Tsuna could be a bad influence made her laugh.

"Haha, Naohiko..." She really didn't know how to explain this to her brother; she didn't even know the reason herself that Tsuna was running around in only his boxers. "Tsuna isn't a bad influence, but umm… you're right: I am supposed to meet up with him now, bye."

Naohiko frowned at his sister abandoning him once again, though he shrugged it off he'd just catch up with her at home. He turned back to the boy in his boxers giving him a questioning look.

"Hiee!" The boy 'Tsuna' let out an odd scream. Naohiko shook his head while smiling to himself. 'I guess he is harmless, though a bit strange.' He turned away from the group walking the opposite way his sister went, he'd take the long way home it was nice walking around his hometown again.


Miyuki was about a block away from her house when she saw someone walking a few steps ahead of her, smiling as she noticed his red hair.

"Sho-chan!" She called out while jogging a bit to catch up with him.

"Hello, Miyu-chan" there was a slight blush across his cheeks as he spoke to the girl.

"Let's go, before Naohiko catches up to us." She tugged on his arm as she walked to the house. She didn't let go of him until they were standing in the middle of her bedroom.

"Please sit down; I'll get the paper that explains what the project is about." Shoichi nodded at sat down at her desk.

After finishing the project, which was a lot easier than Miyuki had originally thought, they both sat in her bedroom talking about a robot convention that Shoichi wanted to go to.

"If you really don't want to go alone, I'll go with you." Miyuki smiled at Shoichi. She knew he didn't like going alone to them, she couldn't think of anyone that would want to go to any kind of convention alone.

"You would be bored..."He trailed off watching and she stood up from her bed.

"I'm going to fix us some lunch or something, you can use my laptop while you wait okay?" She handed him the laptop and left the room.

Shoichi turned to the laptop, turning it on. When it was on and loaded a messenger program came up followed by a ding.

Byakuran

Hey Miyu-chan~

Shoichi stared at the screen, he didn't want the person to think Miyuki was ignoring them, but he also didn't want her mad at him for messaging the person back. After debating about it for a minute, he decided to respond.

Miyuki

She's not here at the moment, she's making lunch...

Byakuran

Oh? Who is this?~

Miyuki

Umm, my name is Shoichi...

Byakuran

I'll call you Sho-chan ^.^ ask Miyu-chan to make me some lunch, too hehe~

Shoichi stared at the screen in disbelief. He didn't really know how to respond to this person. He didn't think Miyuki actually spoke to strangers online. She always said they were creeps and she'd rather spend time talking to real people. Shoichi's eyes widened, maybe she actually knows this guy? Although, she's never mentioned a 'Byakuran' to him before.

"Sho-chan I just fixed us some instant ramen, I didn't want to leave you alone too long while I cooked something." Miyuki spoke walking into the room with two cups of ramen.

"Ahh Miyuki! I was, umm..." Shoichi tried to think of a way to explain why he was in the chat with her friend.

Miyuki stood behind Shoichi looking over his shoulder at the chat, sighing she reached over the boy to type a response.

"M-Miyuki..." Shoichi suddenly grabbed his stomach in pain as his face turned a deep shade of red.

"Hehe, sorry!" She picked up the laptop and moved away from his personal space.

Miyuki

You're an idiot, have you had lunch yet?

Byakuran

I'm eating Marshmallows~

Miyuki

Well...eat some real food, I've got someone over I'll talk to you later.

Byakuran

Yes, yes...I didn't know you had a boyfriend though~

Shoichi reading Byakuran's response suddenly bent over in pain. Miyuki smiled at her friend rubbing his back. "Ignore him Shoichi, he likes to tease people."

Miyuki

I'm serious, you'll get fat...I refuse to acknowledge your teasing.

Byakuran

Then I'll be like a human marshmallow!

I wonder if Sho-chan acknowledged my teasing...

Miyuki is currently offline.

"I can't believe you Miyuki!" Naohiko gave his younger sister a half-hearted glare while holding a bag of ice to his head.

"Sorry, my hand slipped." Miyuki responded.

Naohiko had barged into her room without knocking, after seeing Shoichi and Miyuki alone in the room he just had to make a comment. Miyuki didn't respond to him, instead she picked up the staff by her door and hit her brother with it while walking out, since she happened to come back with only a bag of ice it was clearly more than just a slip of the hand.

"Anyway, I'm going to that robot convention with you Sho-chan… that's what friends are for right? I mean, I've had you go with me places you weren't interested in, what kind of friend would I be if I didn't return the favor?"

Miyuki smiled at Shoichi as she spoke.

"If you're sure."

"I am."
