Summary: Things aren't always what they seem.


Hana watched from a far as her best friend was talking to Yuki Sohma. A brief pang of jealousy hit her seeing them smile sweetly at one another. Every since Tohru had become friends with the Sohmas it seemed she had even less time for her old friends. Hana knew it was silly to feel jealous of Yuki but it felt like he was taking Tohru away.

Perhaps her anxiety would not have been so intense if the Sohmas didn't have such dark auras. Looking at Yuki she could see the swirls of darkness surrounding him, touching him, and almost kissing him. Whatever the cause, the underlying darkness that resided in his heart alarmed Hana. She worried that Tohru would be swallowed by the Sohmas' darkness.

For a moment Yuki and Hana made eye contact. Sadness filled Hana; maybe she and Yuki weren't so different after all. Searching his eyes she realized that she too knew how it felt to smile even in the face of overwhelming pain.
