Um, I really don't have much to say for this chapter. Read and review! ^^


The four girls began to cry as they looked at their friend. Trowa just stood there numb with shock. 'This is all my fault!' He wanted to cry himself, but he had to be strong. The girls slowly made their way over to their friend, hoping that they could help her remember them.

"Mina..I'm your best friend, Rei Hino. I used to call you Min and you'd call me Re." Rei smiled weakly at her blonde friend, who shook her head.

"I'm sorry, but I don't remember." Mina said quietly to the raven-haired girl.

"I'm your cousin Usagi Tsukino." Usagi smiled as best she could; yet Mina just shook her head again.

"My name is Ami Mizuno. I always helped you with your school work when you came to the coffee shop." Ami stepped forward so as to give Mina a better view of how she looked.

"Lita Kino! I'd always bake your favorite food and we'd also go boy hunting together!" Lita grinned as fresh tears spilled down her cheeks, and Mina smiled sadly at the girl.

"I'm sorry, but I don't remember any of you." Her gaze shifted to Trowa who had been standing there quietly the whole time. "Who's that?" She asked her mom, who glared at Trowa before turning back to her daughter.

"No one." The girls gasped and Trowa's eyes widened in surprise. Before he could say anything, Mr. Aino got up and walked a few feet away from everyone, motioning for Trowa to follow.

"My wife and I have decided that it would be best if you weren't in Mina's new life." Trowa stood there surprised at what he heard, but he nodded anyways. Looking at Mina one last time, he left the room.


"Hey Trowa! How's Mina doing?" Duo asked as Trowa entered the house the five of them were sharing. Trowa just ignored Duo as he walked right past his friend. He wouldn't be a part of Mina's life anymore. Trowa passed the others as he went upstairs to his room. Closing the door, he pushed the dresser in front of it before sitting down on his bed. Trowa could feel himself slowly slipping into depression.

Days had passed and still Trowa remained in his room. He only came out when the others were gone, and returned to his room when they came back. Trowa was sitting on his bed looking at the pictures of him and Mina when a knock on the door brought him out of his thoughts.

"Trowa?" It was Quatre this time instead of Duo. "Mina went back to school today." He paused for a moment before continuing on. "She's slowly starting to remember things, most of them having to do with Rei and Usagi though since she's around those two so much." Another pause. "Rei and the others can't talk about you to Mina. It seems her parents don't want you around her." There was a muffled cry and the sound of someone being pushed aside.

"Hey Trowa! Come out already! You do know that if you go to the coffee shop you'll see Mina, right?" Trowa pushed the dresser out of the way, and was about to open the door when Duo continued on. "You should have seen her today! She looked hot!"

Trowa opened the door and glared down at the surprised Duo. Grabbing him by the collar, Trowa shoved him up against the wall. "What the hell did you just say?" Duo paled and began to stutter as he looked into the emerald eyes.

"Th-that she was h-h-h-hot?" Duo wished he was anywhere but there. Trowa raised his fist about ready to hit Duo a familiar voice reached his ears.


"Thank you for inviting us." Mina bowed to Heero who just nodded.

"Onnas." Wufei nodded to Usagi and Mina as he wrapped an arm around Rei's waist. Mina was a bit shy at being at their house, but tried to hide it. Mina and Usagi sat down on the couch and began talking about an assignment that they had for English. Heero was typing away on his laptop and Rei and Wufei had left to "talk". Three boys came downstairs and both Mina and Usagi turned to see who it was.

"There you guys are! I was wondering where you were. Mina, you remember Trowa, right?" All activity in the room stopped as Mina and Trowa looked at each other.

"Yeah, you were at the hospital, right?" Trowa nodded before sitting down on a chair and opening a book. He tried to read it, yet his eyes kept drifting to Mina, and he ended up spending the whole time watching her. Mina began to relax as she started to talk to Quatre and Duo. Rei and Wufei came back minutes later and joined in on the conversation. Usagi was trying to get Heero to talk, but gave up after awhile.

Seconds turned to minutes and minutes to hours. It was six thirty before Mina knew it, and it was time to go home. "Hey Usa, wanna spend the night with me tonight?" Mina smiled happily at her cousin as they grabbed their school bags and walked towards the door.

"Sure!" The two girls said their good byes to everyone, even Rei who decided to stay a bit longer. Before they left, Mina glanced at Trowa who was still reading. He hadn't spoken to anyone the whole entire time and for some reason, it bothered her. As Usagi went outside, she walked a bit back into the house so she got a better view of him.

"Bye Trowa." Mina smiled and waved to him before going outside to where Usagi was waiting. "Let's go!" Mina grabbed Usagi by the hand and the two ran off to Mina's house.


Trowa finally closed the book after the two girls left and stood up. Something out of the corner of his eye caught his attention, and he turned to see Mina's lunch bag. Picking it up, he walked out to where the others were talking.

"What's that?" Duo asked as he looked at what Trowa was holding.

"Lunch bag. Can I borrow your car? I haven't fixed my bike yet." Duo nodded and grabbed his keys out of his coat pocket before tossing them to Trowa.

"Be careful with my car!" Duo called as Trowa left. Trowa just nodded before closing the door behind him.


"Uhh Mina, I think we took a wrong turn." Usagi was eyeing a few guys who they were currently walking past.

"Really? I was sure that this was the right way home." Mina blinked as she looked around the street. "Hey...I think that if we turn down this street, then it'll take us to that one street with the cats and then down another street and.." She trailed off as she saw a few guys step out in front of her from an old building.

"Mina, I'm really really sure that we're lost this time." Usagi whined as she clutched Mina's arm tightly.

"Excuse me!" Mina smiled up at the guy, trying not to be nervous so as to keep Usagi calm.

"Aren't we looking good tonight." The man chuckled as he took a step forward, causing the two girls to step back.

"I smell...virgins." A weasel looking guy behind them sniffed the air before grinning at the two, hunger and lust dancing in his eyes.

"It was um..nice talking to you, but we have to go now. Bye!" Mina grabbed Usagi's arm and the two ran down the narrow alley that separated two buildings. As they reached the end, Mina smiled triumphantly and Usagi breathed a sigh of relief. Suddenly, a hand grabbed Mina around the waist and ripped her away from Usagi. She struggled to get away, and another hand came over her mouth. Usagi was in pretty much the same situation, and was trying harder then hell to get the hand off her mouth.

"I can't believe you two tried to leave the party, it's just starting." The head jerk or goon as Mina thought, looked to be over six feet tall. Mina's eyes began to water as hope of escaping slipped out of reach. Struggling even harder, the head goon looked over at her, a smile appearing on his dirty face. "Bring me her, she sure seems feisty tonight." Mina struggled even more, and dragged her feet as she was pulled over to him. "You guys can have the other one."

"Hey thanks boss!"

"You're the best!!"

"Have fun!"

Mina glared up at the guy, refusing to let herself cry. The guy's dirty finger was about to touch her cheek, when suddenly, his eyes rolled up into his head and he fell forward. Letting out a small scream, she jumped out of the way. To her surprise she saw Trowa standing there behind the guy.

"T-Trowa?" She whispered, her eyes wide in shock.

"Not now." He tossed her something, a bag of some sort, before darting off to where the other guys held Usagi. Looking down, she smiled as she saw her lunch bag, and held it close to herself. One scream and a few shouts later, Usagi was next to her side, crying. Mina wrapped her arm around her shoulder and comforted her cousin as she watched Trowa fight the guys. Minutes later after he finished off the last of them, he came over to where the two girls were standing.

"Are you two alright?" He asked as he looked the two over. Mina just nodded and Usagi's crying became a few sniffles. "I'll give you two a lift to Mina's." He left the alleyway with the two of them following closely behind him.

" do you know where I live?" Mina asked as she climbed into the backseat with Usagi. Usagi stopped her sniffling and turned to watch Trowa who had gotten in and started up the car.

"I just do." Trowa muttered before taking off down the street. The ride to Mina's house was quiet, except for Usagi who had fallen asleep and was snoring softly. As the car rolled to a stop in front of her house, she woke up Usagi and the two got out. As Usagi walked down the path to the front door, Mina bent down and looked in the car at Trowa.

"Thank you for the ride home." She smiled at him and he nodded before driving off. As she walked to her front door, she felt her cheeks heat at the thought of Trowa.
