Author's note: this takes place right after the first arc of tenjho tenge.
"No brat! That's not how you do it!" shouted their captain.
"Come on! I'm starving here! Ever since I was able to do the forged iron needle. I've eaten only once!" shouted the blond kid. He was wearing a red shirt and blue jean shorts. He was sweating up a storm but still, his captain, Maya Natsume, wouldn't even budge.
"And you're gonna keep starving until you master it!" Maya shouted back. She was getting tired of his constant complaining, but knew that this had to be done in order for him to master his attack.
"But... sis... you shouldn't be so hard on him....," whimpered Aya. She was Maya's younger sister, and Souichiro's so-called fiancé.
Maya glared at her younger sister but eventually sighed. She knew this was going to happen. Aya's golden eyes were close to tears. Maya turned and looked at Souichiro, who was on the verge of passing out. Maya looked back at her sister and placed her left hand on Aya's head.
"You should have more faith in your sister," Maya whispered and removed her hand. She turned and walked into the house.
Everyone from the Juken club had been training at the Natsume's residence because it was safer there than at the dojo at school. It was important for them to try to keep their fighting knowledge away from the other clubs, because they had hoped they would be able to win the next election tournament.
Maya silently walked thru their house. She entered a dark room and kept the sliding door open because the moon would be able to lighten up the whole room.
She walked over to the only table within the room, and knelt down in front of it. On the table was a photograph of her older brother, Shin. He was young, with long silver, flowing hair.
"Heh.. I like this picture of you, brother. You're actually smiling and you don't have that stupid eye patch on," Maya grinned out. "It made you look like a pirate anyways," she chuckled.
Her smile quickly faded into a frown. She closed her big sapphire eyes and thought back to the last moment she saw Shin alive.
"I remember everyone just standing around, not helping. Nobody would help you, brother! Your face looked determined at the start of the fight but then... it all changed...
"Mits...Mitsuomi's face looked blank. Like he didn't have a single thought... other than to win...
"I never... saw that before. It terrified me. And then.. Your face... it changed too. Your whole attitude changed. It was as if... time froze... no one could say anything or even more for that matter. I tried to scream... to yell... to move! But... I just couldn't. All I could do was just stare on as you and Mitsuomi fought...
"But even when I was able to cry out... you wouldn't listen. You probably didn't even hear me, did you? No... you probably didn't. If you did though.. Why didn't you stop? Didn't you see me?... didn't you see my tears?
"What about Mana?... I'm sure... she was crying... I can't believe she yelled at me like that! All I did was... yell out... and she ended up yelling at me... I hope you gave her a tongue lashing for that one brother...
"I thought... you always wanted me at your side... I guess you didn't...in the end.... But... I like to think that I mattered.. But really...really...
"Really, no one, other than Mitsuomi mattered to you... and before we knew it... you were gone..."
End of flashback~+~+~+~+~
"I want you to know...," she opened her eyes and looked at his picture. "I want you to know that I never left you... I never will... I promise..."
She wiped her tears away and stood up on her shaky legs. She looked at all of the other objects on the table next to Shin's picture.
There was the picture of the original Juken club. Shin was smiling, while leaning up against his bike, and Bounshichi was kneeling right next to him. Mitsuomi had his arm around Maya, and they were both smiling.
Maya looked away from that picture, while feeling a slight tug at her heart. She looked at a note that was addressed to Shin. It was from his girlfriend, Mana. It had never been read by anyone else other than Shin.
"And that's how it should remain," thought Maya.
There were only two more objects on the table now. Right next to the note was a picture of Maya's parents. Aya usually stares at the photograph a lot because its becoming more difficult for her to remember them. Everything had happened when she was so young.
The final object on the table was a necklace that Shin had bought Maya the day before the fight with Mitsuomi. Maya had refused to wear the necklace because she claimed he had 'wasted' money on her, and she could live without it. Maya picked up the necklace, and had started to cry again.
"Maybe if I wore this... maybe if... I would've appreciated him more... he would've..." her thoughts became clouded and she wept again.
Her fingers were shaking as she put down the golden necklace. With one last look at the photograph of her big brother, she wiped her tears for the last time and left the room.
She slowly walked up to the training area and watched her students practice. She was lost in thought for ten minutes, before she yawned and decided it was about time that they called it quits.
"Go out and have dinner," she told them.
"But Captain! It's only 8:30! We can still train-" Masataka started to say but was caught off by Aya.
"That's a great idea! Souichiro, I know of this amazing place where we can go!" Aya squealed with pleasure.
"What? No way!" Souichiro yelled. "I'm not allowed to eat, so I'll just stay here and train some more." Souichiro started punching and kicking at nothing.
"Brat, I'm letting you eat. Now all of you, go," Maya said, while turning around.
Masataka sighed and left the room displeased. Bob and Souichiro left shortly afterwards.
"Uhm..sister... Can I talk to you?" Aya asked, timidly.
"Hmm?" Maya turned around and looked at Aya, questionably.
Aya walked up to Maya and stared at her sister's eyes. Finally, she asked, "Are you ok? You're eyes... are kind of puffy..."
"Hrm..." Maya turned away from Aya, and looked at the wall.
"It's... brother... isn't it?" Aya asked. Her eyes were full with concern.
Maya flashed around with anger. "Did you use your dragon's eye?!"
"What? No! It's just..." Aya looked down, trying to avoid her sister's gaze. "I've noticed you were staring at his picture a lot lately, so I... just assumed..."
"It's none of your business! You should really be leaving, otherwise you will miss Souichiro," Maya said, fully frustrated and annoyed. She looked down at her sister, and started to cool down.
"Oh!" Aya looked up with bright eyes, "you're right! But what about you?"
"Me? I'm not hungry," Maya said while looking thru the window, at the moon.
"Oh... alright..." Aya said, disappointed. She ran out of the room, calling Souichiro's name.
Maya closed her eyes and stretched. She left the room and walked onto the grass with her bare feet. It was still warm out, so she didn't bother with putting shoes on. She spotted the small flowing river behind some trees, and smiled.
"I might as well take a swim to rest my aching muscles," she thought as she approached the water.
She sighed and took off her black shirt and tight blue jeans. She then knelt down by the water and looked at her reflection.
The girl looking up at her had a sad pair of sapphire eyes and short silver hair. Her face was flawless, as was her body, which was only covered by a cream colored bra and matching underwear.
Maya touched the water, and the image reflected began to warp into many different shapes and images. She splashed some water on her face and took off the rest of her clothes.
She closed her eyes and jumped into the water and began to finally relax.
A black limo was slowly creeping its way thru the dark street. It was headed towards the Natsume's house.
"I'm still not sure why we're even here," complained the man with the cigarette poking out of his mouth. "Why are you even here, Mitsuomi?" he asked the man sitting near him, with the green hair.
Mitsuomi was sitting with his arms crossed and his eyes were closed. He looked pissed.
"If our president wants to be here, then he wants to be here! Don't question his motives!" shouted the pink haired girl. "Besides, the blond boy is causing problems with the Executive Council and we can't allow that to happen any longer!"
"Yeah... right...," Bunshichi puffed at his cigarette and looked out of the window. "We're almost there..."
Mitsuomi opened his eyes and peered out of the window too.
Maya was swimming laps around a small part of the river when she decided to relax again and she started floating on her back. Only her head and boobs were floating above the water.
"What am I doing?...." she thought as she moved her right arm out of the water and tried to grab the moon.
At that moment, out of the corner of her eyes, she saw a black image creep into her house. She flipped over and swam as fast as she could to get to her clothes.
"Dammit... no matter what, I can't let them take the Reik)!" she thought as she hastily came out of the river, dripping wet.
She threw on her shirt and pants, not even bothering with her bra and underwear, and ran into her house. She ran towards the room where she hid the Reiki. She realized the door was still locked, so she tried searching other rooms.
She noticed one of the sliding room doors was some what ajar, and she ran towards it. She was just ten steps away from the room when the intruder darted out.
The intruder was taller than Maya, and probably taller than Bob, too. His hair was flaming red and was pulled back in a long ponytail. He had one spiky bang covering the right side of his face. His eyes were gray, with some green speaks in them. He wore a plain black shirt and baggy black pants. He was holding something in his left hand and Maya stopped dead in her tracks when she noticed what it was.
"That's... my necklace...," she gasped.
