Megumi laughed a little at Misao's impatience and then suddenly, as quick as lightning, her face got serious. She looked at Misao straight in the eye and said, "We remember because we wanted and want to... Kaoru has suppressed her memories... She doesn't want to remember us..."Starting Over

Kaoru woke up, yawning loudly. The sun was shining brightly through the curtains already. Kaoru literally had to pick herself up from the bed and walk towards the window. She spread the curtains apart wide and let the sun glare into her face. Then after a moment, she looked out to be greeted by a beautiful rose garden.
She discreetly opened the window, her face overwhelmed by the rose fragrance. She breathed in loud gulps for a while.
"I'm glad you're enjoying my garden."
"You can call me Misao. Kamiya-san."
Kaoru blinked for a second before replying smoothly. "You can call me Kaoru, too."
"Ahh, then. Shall we go down for lunch?" Misao asked, very nervous. It was Kaoru, all in all, but she was without the memories of the past after all.
"Of course," Kaoru said, still feeling awkward.
"Aren't you going to dress out of your pajamas?" Misao asked.
"Nope," Kagome said, tainted innocence streaking through her voice. She had fire in her eyes. Misao saw and gulped.
"Morning evry- Damn!! Jo-chan, you still in your P.J's?"
"Yes. Since you haven't let me in any hotels, and I'll be residing here, I'll do as I please. Is that all right with you, Shinomori-san?"
Aoshi looked at her briefly then nodded.
"Look, I'm going out today," said Kaoru.
Everyone blinked at her... It was Kaoru but... it wasn't Kaoru...
"What? Ya have a problem?"
They shook their heads.
"Okay then. I have some friends I'd like to meet up with."
As soon as she walked out of the room, there was utter silence.
"Aoshi, I'd like information on Kaoru as soon as possible," Kenshin said, his eyes glinting.
"Ahh, fresh air always did wonders to my body..." Kaoru murmured softly. She went through her purse and pulled out a book. She promptly began to read. The sun still lit up brightly and Kaoru fell asleep.
A voice called her name and shook her gently. Kaoru blinked.
"Oooh," she moaned. "What time is it?"
"It's five past three right now," the person replied.
"I heard the time, you baka! I'm just late meeting-"
Kaoru turned and looked at the person who woke her.
"You always did like the park. Especially this one... Oh god I missed you," he murmured softly.
"I missed you, too," Kaoru whispered back, hugging him tightly.
Then pulling back, he asked in a serious tone, "What brings you to Japan? You swore you'd never be back."
"So that's it?"
"It's just a business meeting? I thought it'd be something important! Like, Yumi died or something," Soujiro Seta laughed.
"Besides, if Yumi died, wouldn't you be the first to know?" Kaoru snarled.
"Not really... I haven't been in contact with them," Soujiro mused.
"No... Not really... By the way, did you miss Japan?"
"No. Not really..."
"Why did you leave anyway?"
Soujiro raised an eyebrow.
"Honestly, I really don't know. It feels familiar. Besides, I had a great chance of surviving in America. With good pay and a good education."
Somehow, Soujirou thought, that wasn't the end of it.
"Anyway, I really should go meet Shi-chan and Yu-chan. Haven't seen them in the longest time. How are his burns?"
"They're better. His dermatologist keeps insisting on aloe. But we know it isn't going to get better," Soujiro sighed.
"What do you mean it's not going to get better? If he listens to his dermatologist, it will get better!" Kaoru insisted.
Soujiro winced. She doesn't know you idiot!
"Anyways, I met the weirdest people here. They just keep insisting that they know me..."
Soujiro's eyes widened. He blurted, "You are a reincarnation, too?!"
A/N: I hope that you guys enjoyed. I know it's been a long time. Review! Can you guess who Shi-chan and Yu-chan is?
