"Let's go home already", he smile to his half ghoul friend.

Kaneki eyes widen regain some of his sense pleading for Hide to go away.

"I'm sorry.. Could you fight with all your strength one last time?", Hide smile sadly and close his eyes. He knows Kaneki need to be feed, and he don't have much time because of injury. "It better like this. If it's Kaneki, I'm happy die for him" he thought to himself when Kaneki lean forward to bite him. He waiting for the pain from this friend but it never come. Hide open his eyes when he hear a feminine voice groan. A person wearing a butterfly mask let Kaneki bite his hand to protect Hide. The person Kakugan different from Kaneki. Unlike Kaneki with black sclera and red pupil, the person who protect him have dark grey sclera and red pupil.

Kaneki rip the person hand meat and eat it hungrily. The person hand draw many blood because of Kaneki vicious ripping with his teeth. "One-Eyed Ghoul?... Not many people like him, and Kakuja? You must have a hard time", Hide look at the person only look at it's red pupil. The person clench it teeth and rip more his flesh and throw it to Kaneki.

"W..Why?", Hide look at the ghoul in front of him. Not looking at Hide it reply "I'm just saving my friend. This person.. In front of me… Is your friend right? Then he is my friend too", Hide can't understand but he know the person who save him smile under the mask.

Kaneki mask started to crumble and he faint after devour some of the ghoul meat. "I.. I thought ghoul don't eat other ghoul meat", Hide shutter try to endure his pain. "I'm different.." The person turn to him. It open it mask and the hood revealing his face to the blond boy. "I'm quarter ghoul… My body smell more human than a ghoul. That's why my flesh is okay to them"

The Quarter-Ghoul reveal a girl face wearing shawl around her head and cover it to her chest. Her Kakugan revert to normal which it light brown as her left eyes. "First of all… You really an idiot. I can smell your blood from afar. We going to treat your wound so you not going to die.. On me or on your Half-Ghoul friend. But got to say.. Your blood seem to smell really good", she pick out safety kit from her back and sit next to Hide.

"I know Ghoul can't resist me. Not even Kaneki. You know.. This is the second time he tried to eat me.", he chuckle bitterly. He wince when the girl treat his large wound.

"Hmnnn.. Anyway, You know someone already waiting for Kaneki right?", she still not looking at Hide. He nod "It Arima Kishou-san. And that place is the only way out. He waiting for Eye-Patch aka our Kaneki here", he gesture to Kaneki who already faint on the ground.

"There.. We're done.. Anyway, do you remember me?", she ask at Hide. Hide look at her carefully trying to remember. His eyes widen "Haa! Aren't you the new student that transfer to Kamii from Malaysia? I remember giving you direction cause you kind of lost", he grin to her. She smile "Yeah.. I'm glad you remember. You're the first friend I had here and I can't forget you scent. It too alluring. You lucky human meat not the only thing I consume", she shrug.

"Ehh? What do you mean?", Hide ask but distract his attention to Kaneki when the white haired ghoul start to conscious. "W.. Where?", Hide quickly tackle his best friend down to the floor "Kaneki! Oh God! You okay! You finally okay!", his voice crack and his tears keep flowing. Kaneki dumb folded. He don't know what to say. He freeze but finally slowly pat his human friend head slowly. His eyes revert to the girl who looking at him deadpan. He look at her bloody hand, his eyes widen. Before he said anything she interrupt wearing back her mask. "No need to say anything.. I just doing what I think is right. We have other thing to be concern about".

"She smell weird.. Human.. But weird", he wonder to himself. His gasp when her eyes turn to dark grey sclera and red pupil. Knowing what Kaneki thinking she shrug " I'm quarter ghoul not like you an half-ghoul. Then, I'm a lot human than ghoul.. Detail later.."

"Hide… Can't we do something about Arima…?", she look at him. He shook his head "He known at the Death.. For the ghoul. I… Kaneki…"

"Why you say to me.. to fight him with all my strength? Hide? Why you still..", he bite his lower lip "I'm a monster.. I almost eat you, hurt you.. YOU COULD HAVE DIED!", Hide smile sadly "You not a monster.. Remember the day when Nishiki-senpai kick me? It really hurt and hard to keep pretending I'm died. I heard it all at Anteiku. How can I even think you as a monster? I never think of that, you are my friend. How do you think I feel when you suddenly disappear? My despair? I think I could died, you the reason I still want to be alive", he smile brightly with tears flowing his cheek.

Kaneki eyes shed tears when he look at Hide painful expression. In reflex, he pressed his lips towards the blond. Hide eyes widen while the quarter-ghoul tried to ignore what just happen and try to strain herself from taking the picture of both boy making out. Kaneki realize what he done when the girl fake cough and let go Hide with scarlet red face and try to regain his breath back.

"Now you two already done, let's get out of here… Just please restrain yourself Kaneki-san… You can do anything to your human friend, Hide after we get out from this raid", she observe the place.

"Errr…. Who are you?", Kaneki ask. "Senpai …. That really hurt me… It's me… Ummi Binti Mohsein… I'm the new student?", she face palm when Kaneki make an adorable question face. She startled when Hide remove her mask and then Kaneki face show some recognize face. "Hide-san!". The blond wince in pain while giggling toward the girl antic.

Kaneki remember the girl to be the new foreign student when the beginning he become a half-ghoul. The girl claimed as 'Ummi' a few times come to Anteiku with Hide to show places to the new girl. But he never remember that Ummi even had a ghoul scent. "B..But you smell….. Human…", Kaneki gasp.

"Okay.. I'll tell you this once.. I won't repeat again. I'm a quarter-ghoul… soo.. my RC level is between human and ghoul. Sooo.. Unlike you Kaneki-san.. Even though you a half-ghoul… Your RC level still higher than human.. That's why you need to eat human flesh.. As for me.. I can eat both human food and human flesh… But I choose to eat human food. And unlike you.. I don't really sensitive like usual ghoul. That my weakness as a quarter-ghoul. It take me a long time before I can even take out my kagune…", Ummi finish lecturing both the boy and they only nod understanding.

"We need to find another way to get out from here", Hide suddenly talk seriously. "But you say the one Arima waiting for me is the only way out!", Kaneki protest. Seeing the friend (couple) yelling to each other make the girl heart warm. Her giggle stop them. She smile sweetly to them before… "Don't worry Hide-san… Kaneki-san… I'll do my best to protect you two.. Since you two are my friends. My precious one", With that both of both vision faded and darkness consume them when they inhale something weird.

Looking at her friend serene face she put her butterfly mask and walk away. She glance for the last time before dialing someone with her phone. "Renji-san.. Can you do me a favor… Please take Kaneki and Hide-san to safer place… I kinda use my sleep powder to them…", she smile.. "don't worry… I'll take his place seeing Arima-san…. If I… We will meet again.. Tell them that… Okay…..", her broken Ukaku kagune resemble butterfly out ".. Goodbye..", she off her phone and fly toward Arima location.

"I'm sorry Shinigami-san… Centipede won't be coming here tonight.. he suffer too much.. Soo.. I'm replacing him instead", Ummi cheerfully exclaim to him. "You a nice person and rather a brave one… Why you want to save him? He kill many", Arima question her. Ummi shrug " Like I said.. He suffer too much. He just a victim. A person who been at the wrong time and wrong place. Beside.. He have someone who longing for him for a long time.. He is the same for that person". Arima now in his battle form same as Ummi. "Soo..

Okay… You can say that my OC take Kaneki place and she the one who amnesia instead of Kaneki. Ummi is my original OC .. You can find it in airaaura dot devientart . In Tokyo Ghoul folder. This story I write before I design Ummi character.. I say this is Chapter Zero before the real design of Ummi.

A bit about Ummi in this story. Ummi know Hide and Kaneki a few days after Kaneki turned into half-ghoul. Ummi is younger than the original Ummi that I design right after. She quite fond to Hide and Kaneki especially Hide after Kaneki gone for 6 month. Ummi lost fight with Arima. She suffer amnesia and Arima give her a new name 'Unie'. Now I think about it.. It quite similar to Urie.

Thanks for reading this story. Please review… See you again..
