Tragedy of the Sohmas

Chapter 1- A year later

1 year has gone by that I haven't though about her. She was the love of my life, and the love of that damn rat. I never thought that she would leave us. It still doesn't seem possible. But that is just how it happened.

-Flashback-

"Kyo-kun," Tohru stated brightly.

It was early in the morning and we were doing the usual. Tohru getting up and dressed, then going to make breakfast. I am getting in the shower after an early morning of training and the rat is eventually getting up.

"What do you want?" I said despite that I was being my usual old self.

"I just came to tell you that breakfast is ready."

"Honda-san, I have to leave early for a student council meeting. I will just grab something quick and I will be on my way out." Yuki said, wide awake now.

"Good, now I don't have to put up with you on the way to school." Kyo said, perking up into the conversation.

"I don't want to hear it you stupid cat." Yuki commented.

"What did you say? I dare to you to say that again."

"Stupid....cat...." Yuki drawled out.

"Oh, now you've done it rat-boy, I am gonna smash you're girly face in now." Kyo yelled.

"Please boys, don't tear up my house. I kinda need this house to live in. Besides why don't you come enjoy what my beautiful flower has prepared for us." Shigure said, while reading the morning paper.

"Shigure, you damn pervert. Don't be going around sayin stuff like that about Tohru."

As always this only resulted in Shigure getting his daily beating.

"Well, I have to go. I will be also staying late so I will not be able to walk you home, Honda-san." Yuki said, while putting on his shoes.

"That's alright, I will just walk along home with Kyo." Tohru replied cheerfully.

"See you later." was Yuki's last comment before he walked out the door.

Well, they finished breakfast, without really anything to say because Shigure didn't want another beating to the head by Kyo himself. The walk to school wasn't much eventful either. As they arrived to school, they walked into the classroom, and began the start of another school day. As soon as school let out, Tohru had said good-bye to her close friends Arisa Uotani and Saki Hanajima. Not knowing that those were the last words, that those two will ever hear from her again.

They started the walk home, alot more intresting than this morning. Tohru didn't have to work that day so she had free time on her hands today. Since they weren't to far from the park, kyo started to think about his feelings.

'Oh, gosh I love her. I wonder that since today seems like the perfect day, God is shining down on me today, and before all these emotions go everywhere, I think i will confess my love to her. But i wonder if she will reject me by a simple jester.'

Kyo reached over and gently grasped her hand along with the blush, and she in turn smiled cutely and lightly squeezed his hand.

"Hey Tohru, since you don't have to work today, I was wondering if you would like to go to the park with me?"

"Sure."

So they walked around the park when he found the perfect spot to tell her.

"I have something to tell you." He started.

"Well, what could it be?" she asked in turn.

"Ever since I first met you, i have loved you. I love your smile, your hair, anything about you. When we are alone sometimes, I have always dreamed of telling you these words, i am now."

"Oh, Kyo, I love you too." She replied happily.

Yuki had gotten out of his meeting earlier than he had thought. So he decided to take a walk, when he had saw Akito going to the park. Yuki thought it strange but when he was in the park, all he saw was 2 figures smiling happily at eachother.

'Orange hair....that must be....Kyo! But wait who is with him?'

He moved a little closer to where they were standing, but didn't want to give himself away.

'Th...th....that's Tohru. oh, no.' he thought as the 2 figures slowly moved forward to capture eachother's mouths.

'That....damn.....cat. He has confesseed his love to Tohru and now I have no chance of getting her. Wait a second....Akito. Where is he?'

He frantically scanned the area when he saw a figure pulling out a .25 caliber.

"HONDA-SAN.......KYO, GET OUT OF THE WAY!" Yuki yelled, at the top of his lungs.

But it was to late, Akito aimed the gun at Tohru and fired. It hit the spot, and she fell out of Kyo's grasp and onto the ground screaming in pain. Kyo didn't even see the shot coming again a second time when he was hit in the shoulder, right after Tohru was shot.

"TOHRU......NOOOOOOO." Kyo screamed.

Akito stepped out of his place which was very close might I add. And he said, coldly and heartlessly,

"The zodiac cat shall and never should fall in love with a worthless piece of crap."

Then Akito left without another word. And Yuki was running as fast as he could to Shigure, and told him to call Hatori and tell him that Tohru was shot. Kyo managed to keep Tohru alive and in his arms for a good 15 min. when she slowly started to fade away. the last thing she managed to say was,

"Kyo, I love you, please do this as my last wish, solve your differences with Yuki-kun, and never stop loving me...." and she closed her eyes.

"No don't do this to me. Tohru wake up..." tears were streaming down his face, when he yelled, "DAMN.....YOU.....AKITO."

Hatori had arrived a few minutes to late, and heard Kyo scream. He had it all figured out.... It was all Akito's doing.

-End of Flashback-

And that was how she died. In my arms, with no one around me. Just thinking about what happened makes my blood boil.

'Someday, I shall make him pay for what he did to her. And then, only then will her death be avenged.'

Shigure and Yuki had tried so hard to make the household normal again but for some reason, found themselves back at sqaure 1.
