If I Could Redo Everything
A/N: Due to copyright worries, I probably won't be sticking to the actual dialogue in the TMM anime.
The night Kisshu left, Ichigo made a wish on a star. Little did she know, that wish would change everything.
I wish I could redo this entire battle.
The next morning, Ichigo woke up, looked at her calendar- and froze. The date was the day she had first met Kisshu. Then she remembered the wish she had made, and relaxed. I'm going to do things right this time, she thought determinedly. Then she went to get ready for school.
Ichigo was walking down the sidewalk when her pet robot, Masha, popped up, saying, "Ichigo! Alien! Alien!"
"Where, Masha?" Ichigo asked- even though she already knew.
"Up here!" Kisshu's voice called. Ichigo looked up at the clock tower as Kisshu continued, "I was sent to observe the people opposing us. But I'm actually quite fond of you!"
Ichigo watched him jump off the clock tower, and a minute later, felt his lips on hers. Unlike the first time, Ichigo didn't push him away. Instead, she kissed him back, amazed at how their lips seemed to fit together perfectly.
Kisshu broke it off, and Ichigo looked at him. He was looking at her strangely, and asked, "Why did you kiss me back?"
"Um….. your lips felt really nice on mine?" Ichigo suggested nervously.
Kisshu smirked briefly, then sighed. "You do realize that kissing me has consequences, right?" he asked.
"Yeah, if my alien-hating jerk of a boss finds out, he'll murder me," Ichigo said.
To her surprise, Kisshu shook his head. "That's not what I meant," he said. "I shouldn't have done that. Now we're bonded, and that means I'm in for it."
"Bonded?" Ichigo asked, puzzled.
Kisshu sighed, then grabbed her hand and teleported. Ichigo shut her eyes till they landed, then opened her eyes. They were in a very green bedroom, and it was bigger than her room and the guest room at her house combined. She snapped out of thought when Kisshu said, "You should sit, this might take a while." He sat down on the bed, and Ichigo sat next to him, waiting.
Kisshu sighed again and said, "Bonding means two people have realized they're soul mates, and it's sealed by kissing. I felt something around you, which suggested you were my soul mate, but it would have been better if you hadn't realized it. Unfortunately, there's no way to break the bond now. There goes taking over Earth….."
Before Ichigo could respond, the room faded into blue mist, and Ichigo copied Kisshu, who had gone down on one knee. A child-like voice asked, "Kisshu, I assume there's a reason behind this?"
"This is Mew Ichigo, and apparently she's my soul mate," Kisshu said.
Ichigo suddenly felt a spark go off in her head, and was confused, until Deep Blue said, "I would like to question her privately."
Ichigo noticed Kisshu looked startled, but he just said, "Hai," and teleported out.
Ichigo waited, and then Deep Blue said, "Tell me what you're hiding. Something feels different about this affair; what did you do?"
Ichigo sighed and said, "I made a wish that turned back time. I realized too late that I loved Kisshu, and wished for a chance to fix my mistakes. Apparently I still screwed up, though."
"And is there some reason that you and I seem to be the only ones with some memory of what happened the first time around?" Deep Blue asked.
"I honestly have no idea; I didn't exactly expect the wish I made to come true," Ichigo said. "And I didn't expect that you'd remember as well. Judging by the last time, I'm not so sure this was a good idea…."
"I assume you are referring to the final battle?" Deep Blue asked.
"Correct, I really don't need a repeat of that," Ichigo replied.
"Do you agree with Mew Lettuce's views on the battle?" Deep Blue asked. "Pai once mentioned that Mew Lettuce believed that since we are originally from the same planet, we should cooperate, not fight endlessly."
"Yes, I agree with her," Ichigo said. "Though I find it a bit hard to believe I'm having this conversation with YOU."
"The main reason behind my insane behavior the last time around is that with Aoyama struggling against me, my consciousness was messed up, causing me to go insane," Deep Blue said. "That, and the kid is very boring. Trees, trees, trees. It's all he talks about. If I didn't need his body, he would have been road kill a long time ago."
Ichigo giggled. "You're right about the trees; he's very obsessed with the environment," she said.
"Would you be willing to help Kisshu collect Mew Aqua to save Cyniclonia rather than taking over Earth?" Deep Blue asked. "I realized last time that humans or not, this place is too polluted for me and the other Cyniclons."
"If you're not used to the pollution, it's a real problem," Ichigo commented. "Also, there are billions of humans on Earth, and more are born every day. It would be nearly impossible to kill every human on this planet, especially since they would fight back. I would be more than willing to do so; my creators and teammates might require more persuasion."
"Tell them the identities of the fourth and fifth Mews, and tell them I told you," Deep Blue said. "If your creators doubt my intentions, that knowledge might help them decide; I'm giving them more help."
"Alright," Ichigo said. "Are you going to inform Kisshu of this?"
"Yes, he'll be here soon," Deep Blue said.
Sure enough, Kisshu teleported in and asked, "Is something wrong?"
"No, I just wanted to inform you of an idea Mew Ichigo had," Deep Blue said. "She suggested collecting Mew Aqua to restore Cyniclonia to life. I've heard you complaining about the mess this planet is in; we could stop the fighting and save our planet. It would also solve the issue of you two being bonded."
"That sounds like a good plan, but one thing concerns me," Kisshu said. "I can't take Ichigo home with me, and that means I'd have to stay here."
"I will inform the Council; perhaps they can work something out," Deep Blue said.
"I have an idea," Ichigo said. "My dad won't stop nagging my mom to have more children; what if I tell him Kisshu is a compromise? Then Kisshu could live with me."
"Kisshu?" Deep Blue asked.
"That sounds fine, but what about my ears?" Kisshu asked.
"I believe your brother Pai created something to change them recently; you should call home," Deep Blue said.
"Alright, I'll take Ichigo to go see if her creators will agree to this idea," Kisshu said.
"Very good," Deep Blue said, and the blue mist began to fade. Soon they were back in Kisshu's bedroom, and he sighed. "What's wrong?" Ichigo asked.
"Nothing, I was relieved to find out that our bond won't be a problem," Kisshu said. "I'd better call home, and then we can go see Blondie."
"Okay," Ichigo said. "What's your family like?"
"I was raised mainly by my aunt and uncle, since my parents died when I was six," Kisshu said. "My aunt and uncle are really nice, though, and I have two cousins, Pai and Taruto."
"I thought Deep Blue said Pai was your brother," Ichigo commented.
"We grew up together, so we think of each other as brothers," Kisshu said. "What's your family like?"
"My mom is the sweetest, most understanding person you'll ever meet- and my dad's an overprotective nutcase," Ichigo said. "I don't have any siblings, because Mom refuses to have more children after what happened when I was born."
"What happened?" Kisshu asked.
"I was born early, and the doctors were pretty much convinced I wouldn't live more than about two weeks," Ichigo said. "And up until I was about seven, everyone had to be really careful with me, because I wasn't very strong. I'm fine now though."
"Wow…." Kisshu said. He took her hand and teleported to a large room with a window that looked out into space.
"This is amazing," Ichigo said, looking out the window.
"It's peaceful up here," Kisshu said. He went over to a control panel, and started typing. A floating screen popped up, and flickered for a minute, then cleared to show Pai's face.
"Hi Pai," Kisshu said. "There's been lots of developments. But first I've got a question. Did you figure out something to change our ears yet?"
"Yeah, I created a pill that will change your ears for ten hours at a time," Pai said. "Why, did something happen?"
"I found someone who's not an annoying fan girl!" Kisshu said. "So now I have to stay. And we're working on something to save Cyniclonia; Earth is a wreck."
"YOU bonded with someone?" Pai asked incredulously.
"Yup," Kisshu said. "I guess Earth girls are different."
"Either that or they don't think you're the hottest guy to walk the face of the planet," Pai said dryly.
Ichigo giggled as Kisshu sighed. "Don't worry about it, Kisshu," she said. "All the girls at my school besides my two friends are hooked on Aoyama. Just don't join the kendo team or any other teams, and you'll be fine."
"Okay," Kisshu said. He looked at Pai, and asked, "Can you send some of the pills you made over?"
"Sure, hang on," Pai said. He left, and came back a few minutes later, saying, "I put a bottle in the transporter; they should be there soon. Just take one every ten hours, and your ears will remain human."
"Thanks Pai," Kisshu said. "Say hi to everyone for me, 'kay?"
"I will; good luck," Pai said. Kisshu nodded and cut the connection. He looked over at the far wall, just as there was a beep from that direction. Going over, he picked up a bottle of pills, and said, "Great. Should we go see your creator?"
"Sure, school's almost out anyways," Ichigo said.
Kisshu smiled and took her hand, then teleported them to Café Mew Mew.
If people think this is too much like From the Beginning, please let me know. I'd like to continue it, but if you think it's too similar, I think I'll take it down. Thanks!
