Ouran Public High School's kendo team walked onto Ouran Academy's campus. It was a grand place and the small team looked around in amazement. It was so different from their little, run down public school. Everything looked so expensive. The small group of five didn't fit in. They were in shorts and workout clothes, not expensive uniforms like the students of the high class school.
The Ouran Public High School's gymnasium was under construction, leaving the Kendo team without a place to practice and the fields were taken by spring sports. The Captain of the team had called their rich sister school to see if there was any possible way for them to practice there. At first, the head mast wasn't sure about the idea, but when the Captain told him it would look good, he happily accepted.
The Captain, Miyuki Chiyome was walking in front of the group with the Assistant Captain, Akiyuki Hanori, beside her. The rest of the group, which included five males, was all behind them. Miyuki and Akiyuki were the only girls of the group, but they were by far the best fighters.
Miyuki was quiet seventeen year old girl who had long black hair and emerald green eyes. She was average height. She was a very beautiful girl, who didn't see it that way. She thought of herself as an average looking person. She was nothing special. Not only was she pretty, she was smart and strong. She was the best in their school (after Haruhi Fujioka left to attend school at Ouran Academy). She was the strongest and best fighter.
The small group of teenagers walked into the main office building where the Head Master's office was. The Head Master was Yuzuru Suoh. He was a kind man who was a lady's man. He had slightly grey-blonde-brown hair. His face was slightly wrinkled.
They all sat down in chairs in the office outside of the Head Master's office, except for Miyuki, who walked over to the receptionist. The lady at the desk had long brown hair pulled up in a tight bun. Her eyes were blue and she was young. She was wearing a yellow blouse and a grey skirt. Around her neck was a diamond necklace. They were large and very expensive.
"How may I help you?" she said. She didn't look up from the computer.
Before Miyuki could say anything, Akiyuki jumped up to the desk. "We're from Ouran Public High School." Her voice was cheery as it usually was.
Akiyuki was a strange little girl, indeed. She was Miyuki's best friend, but a handful. Akiyuki looked like she was an elementary student. She was only four feet, eight inches tall. Her brown hair was long and went down to the middle of her back. Her brown eyes almost looked red. Even though she was small and innocent looking, she was still developed. She was the second smartest girl at Ouran Public school and the second strongest in the Kendo club. She was also developed in her features (in a womanly sense).
Akiyuki was not as sweet as she looked. Most of the time she acted like a cute, little girl who loved stuffed animals (she carried around a little stuffed bear named Kuma-chan), sweets and pink, but she was also smart and devious. She had an evil side to her; that came out when she was in Kendo class. She also loved to play match maker. Almost half of the couples at Ouran Public High were matched up by her.
"Well then, you're in the wrong place now aren't you," she said. She finally looked up from the top of the desk at the two young girls.
"We spoke to Suoh-sama on the phone last week. He said that we could practice here while our gym is under construction," Akiyuki said. Miyuki was going to answer but Akiyuki always beats her to it. Over the years she just learned that she would answer for her. So, she was usually silent. Miyuki turned most of her attention to a little black container of little maps of the very large school. She took one, thinking that it might come in handy sometime. "We just need to know where to go."
"Oh, now I know who you are," the lady said. "He's expecting you, please, go right in." She put on a fake smile and watched them walk in.
"Thank you!" Akiyuki jumped up onto Miyuki's back for a piggy back ride. She always jumped onto her back, she was lazy. Plus, she was just like a little kid and they loved piggy back rides.
Miyuki and Akiyuki were the only ones to walk in. The males stayed in the other room, just talking. They walked over to the door and Miyuki knocked. A voice could be heard telling them to enter. So, they did as instructed.
The office was very large. Suoh-sama was seated behind his desk while a young boy, maybe a year younger than Miyuki and Akiyuki. His blonde hair and almost purple eyes were very becoming on him. At one glace, he was in front of Miyuki with her hand in his and him bringing them up to his lips.
"Hello Princess," he said. He was definitely the Head Master's son. "What are you doing here this lovely evening?"
"Hi!" said Akiyuki on Miyuki's back. "I'm Akiyuki Hanori and this is my best friend in the whole world, Miyuki Chiyome. Who are you?" She was acting so sweet and innocent.
"My name is Tamaki Suoh. It is an honor to meet you two beautiful young women." Like father, like son.
"Tamaki-kun, I asked to come here to show the Ouran Public High School Kendo Club to the Dojo," the Head Master said. "Their gymnasium is under construction and they need to practice."
Then the three walked out of the building and into the other office. The five boys followed them out as they all walked around for the dojo. Tamaki knew where it was but the others were blind to where they were going.
"So, what are two beautiful young ladies doing in a Kendo Club?" asked Tamaki.
"They're the Captain and Assistant Captain," said Soto.
"Really? I'm impressed." Tamaki turned to the two girls next to him. "You don't look like you guys would be in Kendo, yet neither does Honey-senpai."
"Who is Honey-senpai?" asked Akiyuki.
The name sounded familiar to Miyuki, but she couldn't place the name. "Honey is Mitsukuni Haninozuka."
"THE Mitsukuni Haninozuka?" gasped Akiyuki. "You know him?"
"Yes, I take it you have heard of him."
"Heard of him? He's one of our idols!" Akiyuki was almost jumping off of Miyuki's back. She was starting to make Miyuki lose her balance. Thank goodness she had carried her so many times on her back that she was able to know how to counter any move that she made.
"Maybe I can set up a meeting for you guy sometime. How would you feel about that, little princess?" He was being so sweet and charming to Akiyuki. A lot of people either adored her or made fun of her, but nobody, except for Miyuki, paid any mind to her, really.
"You would do that?" Her eyes go t really big. Miyuki was afraid that they would pop out of her head someday.
"Sure, what do you say about tomorrow afternoon? You could take of the afternoon from practice," Tamaki said.
"Can we Miyuki-chan? Please? I'll do anything!" Akiyuki screamed in Miyuki's ear.
I swear I am going to go deaf because of her. I'll just have to bill her for hearing aids, thought Miyuki. She shyly smiled at the girl on her back. The young girl started to scream with joy. She was so adorable, but could get very irritating at times.
Tamaki finally got to the building that was called a Dojo. The five males walked in and started to stretch and warm up. Akiyuki jumped off of Miyuki's back and over to Tamaki and gave him a hug, almost knocking him off his feet and to the ground. Then she ran into the Dojo to start warming up with the others.
"How old is she?" Tamaki asked. He was shocked she was even in High School, but Honey looked like he was the same age as her. How was it that they could look so young and he high schoolers?
"She is a senior," Miyuki said. She always kept things simple and to the point, for the most part.
"Wow, she's just like Honey-senpai." Tamaki looked from the small girl to the one standing next to him. His usual self appearing again. He look Miyuki's hand and clenched it like it was something holy or like it could break with the slightest of movement. "And what about you, Princess?"
Miyuki shook her head and removed her hand from his. "I am a senior, like Akiyuki-chan." She started to walk away Tamaki and into the Dojo.
"Meet me in the third music room tomorrow right after you get out of school. I know Honey-senpai would love to meet you two."
The next day seemed like it couldn't go faster. In Miyuki and Akiyuki's classes, Akiyuki couldn't seem to hold still. She would doodle in her notebooks, but that wasn't anything new, but they were drawings of Mitsukuni Haninozuka. She would jump up and down in her chair and swing her feet back and forth while watching the clock, just waiting for school to be over with so she could go see her idol.
If course Miyuki was excited too, but she didn't let it show. She was more nervous about the whole accord. Sure, she was really good at fighting, but was she really worthy enough meeting the great Mitsukuni Haninozuka? She didn't think so. She didn't even think she was worthy of being a teacher at her brother's Kendo Dojo. She didn't think she was worthy of having the title of Captain of Ouran Public High School's Kendo team.
If you couldn't tell, she had very low self esteem.
Finally, when school was let out, Akiyuki grabbed Miyuki's hand and pulled her out of the building as fast as her little legs could go (which was very fast, actually). They actually made it to Ouran Academy in record time. Akiyuki finally stopped dragging Miyuki and jumped on her back. It took more than enough energy to run to Ouran Academy than she would have liked to have used, but she was excited. Now she just wanted to be carried the rest of the way. She truly was a lazy person.
It actually didn't take too long to find the third music room. Not with the map that she had taken from the office yesterday. The place was huge, but with the map, the two girls could find anyplace on campus you asked them to find.
The walked around a building and finally came to a place with a sign saying, "Third Music Room". Miyuki debated with herself for a moment whether or not to knock or just open the door and walk in. In the end she just slowly opened the door and Akiyuki peered in over the top of Miyuki's head.
Tamaki was the first person to notice the strangers. Miyuki walked into the room and as Tamaki ran over to her and Akiyuki, Akiyuki jumped off of her back and over to Tamaki. "Tama-kun!" Akiyuki said. She jumped into his arms like they were old friends.
"Hello my little Princess," Tamaki said to Akiyuki. "I must say you look beautiful today, Hanori-senpai." He put the small senior down back onto the ground and turned his attention to Miyuki. "And you as well, Chiyome-senpai. How is it you can look so beautiful?"
Miyuki just shook her head and rolled her eyes at the young man. She wasn't used to compliments. The only compliments she ever got from people were from the Kendo team and Akiyuki, but she was just thinking that they were being nice. None of it was actually truthful.
"Tama-chan, where is he? Please, where is he?" Akiyuki asked very impatiently.
Tamaki laughed and took the girls hand. He led her over to a small little table with cake and cookies on it, along with some tea cups. There were four chairs; two of the four seats were already taken. One had a small blonde boy with bug brown eyes. Of course it was Mitsukuni Haninozuka; the other was a tall boy with short black hair and black eyes.
"Honey-senpai," Tamaki called out. The young boy looked over to Tamaki with cake frosting on his bottom lip. "This is Akiyuki Hanori. You're her idol."
"Really?" the young boy looked shocked. "I am?"
"Yes, Haninozuka-kun," Akiyuki said. "Ever since I was little."
"When you were little?" asked Honey.
"I am the same age as you," Akiyuki said. "Isn't that cool?"
Honey looked at the young girl in front of him, shocked. He didn't think anyone was like him in the world. That small and young looking, that was. A huge smile spread across his face. Then, in an instant, he was wrapping his arms around Akiyuki's shoulders and pulling her into a bone crushing hug. "You're so cute, Aki-chan."
It took Akiyuki a moment to realize what was happening and for her to respond. She wrapped her arms around him equally small body and hugged him back. "So are you, Honey-chan!" The two laughed as they hugged each other.
"Tamaki-senpai, who are those people?" asked a young looking girl in a boy's uniform. She had short brown hair and big dark brown eyes. It was completely obvious that it was a girl, but why she was wearing a boy's uniform was unknown to Miyuki. She looked really familiar to Miyuki, but she couldn't think of why. It was on the tip of her tongue.
"I met them yesterday. They are from Ouran Public High School Kendo team and their gymnasium is under construction so they are using one of our Dojo's for practice," Tamaki said.
Finally, it came to her. "Haruhi-san?" Miyuki said to the brown haired girl. "Is that you?"
"Yes, but do I know you?" she asked. Miyuki wasn't hurt that she didn't recognize her. She looked completely different than when she was in middle school. Haruhi, Akiyuki and Miyuki used to study together after school, even though they were in different grades. Haruhi was smart and knew the work that the third year middle school students were doing.
"Chiyome-senpai, you know Haruhi-san?" asked Tamaki. He was utterly confused, along with everyone in the room, except for Akiyuki.
"Chiyome, as in Miyuki Chiyome?" Haruhi asked. A smile spread across Miyuki's face as if to answer her old friend's question. "It is you," Haruhi said with a smile.
"How is it you know each other, Haruhi-san?" asked two twins with auburn colored hair and eyes. They were so much alike, but so different at the same time.
"The three of us used to study together in Middle School," Haruhi said. "How are you? I haven't seen you in years."
"Well, thank you. And yourself? Is there a specific reason you are wearing a boys uniform? And why is you hair so short?" asked a curious Akiyuki.
The group of people all sat down on some of the couches and started to talk about what happened to Haruhi. First; her hair. Gum had gotten into her hair and she had to cut it off. Second: Why she was with the group of boys. They explained everything about the beginning of the year and some of the events that had taken place, like the physical exams.
"So how is your father, Haruhi-chan?" asked Akiyuki, who was sitting next to Honey. She had a plate with a piece of cake of it. It was almost gone and it was her forth piece of cake.
"He's the same as always," Haruhi said. "What about you, Akiyuki-senpai?"
"Mommy is good, Daddy is on a business trip in America," Akiyuki said. "I haven't seen him in two weeks." Tears started to pour out of her eyes. "I miss Daddy." She was sobbing heavily, while everyone, except for Miyuki, Haruhi, and Kyouya was trying to get her to stop crying.
"It's okay, Daddy is here. I'll be your new daddy!" Tamaki said.
Miyuki looked over to Haruhi. "He does the same thing to me, Miyuki-senpai." She just shook her head in annoyance. "What about you Miyuki-senpai? How are your parents?"
Akiyuki stopped crying instantly, but tears were still falling down her face. She looked over to her best friend knowing that this wasn't a good subject. If you thought not seeing your father for two weeks was bad, or your mother being dead, imagine having both of your parents gone.
"Haruhi-chan, Miyuki's parents…" She didn't finish her sentence because Miyuki interrupted her. It was shocking to the little girl. It was always the other way around.
"My parents passed away two years ago," Miyuki said. There were no tears, no frowns or any hint of sadness.
"Miyuki-senpai, I am so sorry," Haruhi said. She cleared her voice and tried to change the subject. "How is the Dojo and your siblings?"
"They are doing very well, thank you for asking. The Dojo is prospering," Miyuki said happily.
"You own a Dojo?" asked Honey.
"Yes, they teach Kendo and the art of the Ninja," Akiyuki said. "Her and her brother teach, while Yotsubi and Hanahori are in training."
"Really, that is interesting," Kyouya said.
"So, who is the Captain and who is the Assistant Captain of your Kendo team?" asked Tamaki.
"I'm the assistant Captain and Miyuki-chan is the Captain."
The group of people introduced themselves and then started to talk about random subject. Miyuki stayed quiet the whole time, just enjoying listening to the people around her talk. It seemed like she and Takashi Morinozuka were the only ones who didn't join in on the conversation. They just sat there listening. They weren't too different, but yet, they were.
Then, Miyuki's cell phone went off. She pulled it out of her pocket and walked away from the group so they could continue talking. She didn't want to disturb anyone anymore than they already had that day.
"Hello?" she asked.
"Miyuki-chan, where are you?" her older brothers voice said on the other line. "Class starts in fifteen minutes."
"I'll be there as soon as I can, Ani-chan." She hadn't realized how late it had gotten.
"Alright, I love you," Akio said.
"I love you, too," Miyuki said to her brother. They both hung up the phone and Miyuki walked back over to the group. "I am sorry everyone, but I must take my leave now." She turned to Akiyuki. "Would you like me to walk to home?"
"We can give you a ride, Aki-chan," Honey said. It looked more like he was begging her to go with him. It seemed like he had taken a liking to her.
"Okay, Miyuki-chan, I'll see you tomorrow at school."
Miyuki politely bowed to everyone before running out of the room and out of the building. She was running as fast as she could. It was an hour's walk from Ouran Academy to her house and dojo. She had to go as fast as she could.
Back in the third music room, everyone was starting to get ready to leave when Akiyuki found Miyuki's school bag on the ground next to one of the couches. She picked it up and walked over to Honey and Mori, who were going to be giving her a ride home.
"Honey-chan, Miyuki-chan forgot her bag. Can we bring it to her?" she asked.
"We can go see where Miyuki lives?" He thought for a brief moment. "Yeah! We just have to finish up here and then we can go, okay?"
Miyuki was a couple minutes late to class and she had to change, but she wasn't too late, about fifteen minutes. She changed and went into the Dojo to start the children's lessons. Miyuki taught the children Jujitsu and other forms of martial arts, while Akio taught teenagers Kendo.
After the children left, Miyuki went to help her older brother with his class. She could hear that he was having trouble keeping the older boys under control. They had a habit of fighting. Well, two of them did.
Haku and Hitaro were best friends that often got into heated arguments. They often ended up fighting each other during place and while Akio was trying to calm everyone day, he couldn't break up the two friends. So, Miyuki was left to do so.
When Miyuki got into the other room, she saw Akio trying to show a couple of the students some moves, but the two friends were once again fighting. They both ran at each other with their wooden katanas drawn. She ran in-between the two and put her forearms in the way so they wouldn't collide. Instead the attack landed on her arms (meaning they would be bruised later on). The boys pushed with all their might at first against her arms, thinking they had hit the others weapon. She fought with all her strength against them. It wasn't the first time it had ever happened and it wouldn't be the last, but the pain was always real and it hurt. When they finally realized that it was Miyuki they backed up and looked at her.
"Sensei," Haku said. He was shaking with horror. He had never meant to hurt her. She actually looked up to her, a lot.
"How many times do we have to tell you this?" Akio yelled. He had seen the whole ordeal go down. "We do not go after people in hatred and anger."
"A sword is not a killer, but it is a tool in the hands of a killer. In this Dojo you all vowed to never fight unless it was to protect someone who could not protect themselves. Is this how you follow our teachings? If so, get out. Don't come back," Miyuki yelled. It was the first time she had ever yelled at the students. She had had enough of people going against her parents teachings.
Everyone looked at the young girl. Haku was shaking slightly by how angry he was with himself, while Hitaro stood their doing nothing. Miyuki took their weapons and gave them to her brother. They wouldn't get them back until they were ready.
"I guess we'll have to go over the basics again, now won't we?" Akio yelled to his students. They all bowed their heads to him and sat on the ground, ready to hear another lecture.
Miyuki walked away from the group. She was going to go ice her arms. "Mi-chan! Are you alright?" called a small boys voice over by the doors. Miyuki turned to see Honey running up to her with Akiyuki and Takashi Morinozuka right behind him.
"I have taken worse hits, Haninozuka-kun," Miyuki said politely.
"Miyuki-chan, you left your bag at the Academy," Akiyuki said. She handed her he bag and looked at her arms. "Does it hurt?"
"No," she lied. If she told her the truth than she would either do one of two things. One; break down crying like earlier. Or two; go beat the crap out of Haku and Hitaro. She couldn't let either of those happen.
"I'm sorry, where are my manners? Would you like to come in for tea?" asked Miyuki.
"Do you have cake?" asked Honey.
"Yes, we do." She smiled at the small boy, who was now overjoyed. "Please follow me," she took them into the kitchen where they sat at a small table while Miyuki started to make tea.
She placed the cake on the table so Akiyuki and Honey could hand it out to everyone. It wasn't a great dinner, but it would have to do. Miyuki actually loved cake, but she didn't eat it. After the tea was done she poured it into cups for everyone.
"Do you want some cake, Mi-chan?" asked Honey.
"No, thank you Haninozuka-kun," she said.
"Why not?" he asked shocked.
"Because she practiced when she preaches," Akiyuki said. "She tells her students to eat well and not have too much sugar, so she doesn't eat a lot of bad things for her."
"Really? No cake? I couldn't do that," Honey said. "You must have great will power."
Miyuki chuckled a little bit. She was having more fun that day than she had had in years. "Thank you, Haninozuka-kun."
"You can call me Honey if you like or Mitsukuni. No need to be so formal," he said as he took a big bit of the cake. "It's so good. Did you make it?"
"No, but my little sister, Hanahori made it. I will tell her you love it," she replied.
"Where are Hanahori and Yotsubi-chan?" asked Akiyuki.
"Hanahori is doing homework, while…" She was interrupted by Yotsubi running into the kitchen.
"Nee-chan!" she yelled. She was a four year old girl with short strawberry blonde hair and green eyes. She was wearing a pre-school uniform. "I missed you today."
"I missed you, too." Yotsubi turned her attention to the two strangers. "Mitsukuni-kun, Morinozuka-kun, with is my youngest sister, Yotsubi."
"Hi," she said loudly. She was a hyper little kid, who just loved to meet new people.
"Go play, alright?"
"Okay, bye-bye." She ran out of the kitchen and into the living room to play.
"She is so cute," Honey said. "You're all very cute, Mi-chan."
He face turned red as she took the compliment. Her hair fell over her face to hide the blush. Everyone finished their cake and tea. Miyuki picked up the plates and placed them into the sink.
She turned around to see that Akiyuki and Honey running into the living room to go play with Yotsubi. Mori just stayed sitting where he was. She smiled to herself at how childish they could be. She remembered when Akiyuki and she used to run around playing in her house like that.
She walked up behind Mori and asked, "Would you like more tea, Morinozuka-kun?"
He gave her a small smirk and a, "Uh." He was implying a yes. She poured him anther cup and one for herself and sat back down across from him.
"You are Mitsukuni-kun's cousin, correct?" she asked.
Mori shook his head.
It was silent for a moment before anyone spoke. Akio walked into the kitchen and slumped down at the table. Class must have ended. He hadn't even noticed Mori sitting at the table watching him.
After a moment he sat up and looked at him dead in the eyes. "Who are you?" he asked bluntly.
A moment passed before anyone answered. Mori wasn't going to answer for himself and Miyuki knew that. So, she did it for him, like Akiyuki did with Miyuki. "This is Takashi Morinozuka."
"THE Takashi Morinozuka?" His green eyes were big. He ran a hand through his short strawberry blonde hair. "It is an honor to meet you, Morinozuka-kun."
Akiyuki ran through the kitchen with Honey right behind her. Akio starred after them. "And that was Mitsukuni Haninozuka, Morinozuka-kun's cousin."
"THE Mitsukuni Haninozuka?" once again he said. He repeated his same actions. His eyes wide and a hand running through his soft hair.
"Yes," Miyuki said with a small giggle.
"Not to sound rude or anything, but why are you here?" he asked.
"I forgot my book bag at Ouran Academy today after meeting them, so they brought it over for me," Miyuki said.
"That was very kind of you," Akio said. "Would you like to stay for dinner?"
Once again Honey ran into the kitchen with Akiyuki. "We would love to, but we have plans with the Host Club tonight." He ran over to Mori and jumped onto his back, much like how Akiyuki did to Miyuki. "We really should be leaving. Are we still giving you a ride home, Aki-chan?"
Miyuki walked everyone out to the car or more like limo.
"Bye Miyuki-chan!" Akiyuki yelled as she entered the limo with excitement.
"Thank you for the cake, Mi-chan!" Honey yelled as he gave her a hug. She hugged him back and then he jumped into the limo.
Mori was the last one to get in. Before getting in he turned to her and said, "Thank you." Then he got in and the limo drove off.
Miyuki stood there for a moment in shock. That had been the first time that Mori had spoken to her. Really spoken to her and not just the grunt her gave her earlier when she asked him if he wanted tea. His voice was deep, alluring. It was so soft and sweet too, but it was also strong and tough. She got all that from a mere, thank you.
When Miyuki finally got a hold of herself she walked back inside and started to make dinner for her and her siblings. She was too tired to make anything fancy so it was instant ramen. When it was done she called everyone in and they sat down to eat.
"Are you alright, Nee-chan?" asked Hanahori. She had seen the bruises on her older sister's arms and was worried.
"Yes," she said. "There was just a fight in the Kendo class today."
"You need to ice those after dinner," Akio said.
"I know," she replied. She turned her attention to Hanahori. "I had some guests over today and they loved your cake."
"They did?" she was so excited. "When are you going to see them again? I can make another cake and you can give it to them."
"I could bring it to them tomorrow."
"Great! I'll start right away." She jumped up from her chair and placed her bowl in the sink. Then she started to make a cake.
Yotsubi got up from her seat as well and ran into the living room to play. They could hear her playing with some of her stuffed animals. Her and Akiyuki weren't so different. They both loved cute things.
Miyuki picked up the rest of the bowls and started to wash them. It wasn't her night to wash the dishes, but she usually did them anyways. She liked to make their family's life as easy and relaxing as possible. Even if it made her life harder and tiring.
"Are you alright, Miyuki-chan?" Akio asked. "I have never seen you yell like that."
"I'm sorry. I didn't mean to." She didn't turn around to look at him. "I guess I was just tired of people going against our teachings. You know that the Warui Dojo's students have been acting up more than usual?"
The Warui Dojo was the Chiyome Family Dojo's rival. They taught their students to be ruthless and to win at any cost. Even if that meant by cheating. They were mean people. Often they picked on the younger students of Miyuki's and she had to rescue them all the time. Not that they wouldn't win with someone on their level, but they were always picked on by older, more skilled students.
"How are the kids doing?" Akio asked.
"Very well, but not as well as the older students at Warui that pick on them." She finished the dishes and turned to her brother. "But I'm here. So they don't have anything to worry about."
"Are you sure you don't want me to go and talk to them about it?" Akio asked.
"It'll only make things worse and you know that," Miyuki said.
"Alright, if you're sure about it." He walked over to Miyuki and kissed her on the head and then did the same to Hanahori. "Don't stay up too late." With that, he walked up to his room to retire for the night.
"Do you need any help, Hana-chan?" asked Miyuki.
"No, I got it. Thanks anyways." She turned back around to her work. "You go ice your arms."
Miyuki did just that. She got some ice from the freezer and placed it in a bag. She picked up her book bag from the floor and up the stairs to her room. Her room was one of the smallest rooms in the house. She didn't mine, but it made her life more complicates. She didn't have as much room to move around as she could have liked.
She sat down on her bed and pulled out her homework. On the arm she wasn't using she placed the ice. Her arms were starting to ache more, but she ignored the pain. She had to get her work done.
Unfortunately she had a lot of work to do. She was up almost half of the night doing work. She was tired and wanted nothing more than to go to bed, but that wasn't going to happen, not until she finished her work and made sure it was all correct. It didn't take long for her to go back over it, it was all correct in the first place.
She finally got what she wanted after that. She went to bed.
