YS- I'm so excited! Anyway I don't own Fruits Basket. I am very sorry my spelling with the names sucks! Probably my grammar sucks. Also I know there isn't a 13th zodiac. I also know there isn't any wolf. In my story there is a 13th zodiac and there is a wolf! Its dramatic license being used. Um anyway bye!
The pain the wolf hides
Rain slept peacefully that morning. The raindrops poured outside and the house was silent. For once in her life she slept more then 2 hours. She never felt so good when she woke up. Rain Sohma was her full name. She was a part of the zodiac and was the same age as Kisa and Hiro. She was the 13th member of the zodiac. The wolf.
Although when Rain transformed she was actually a wolf cub. She put on baggy black pants and a short sleeve gray shirt. She put some extra clothes in a suitcase, her cd player, a book, and she took her guitar as well. She was going to see this Toruh person she heard so much about, by Hitori's orders of course. Momiji told her this "The Great Toruh Honda…. the one who can heal the whole Sohma family. Maybe even Akito!"
Rain brushed her brown shoulder length hair with blue streaks in it and looked in her elegant golden eyes. She made her bed. If this Toruh Honda was so great and stuff how is that she only hears from her now? Toruh had been living with Shiguri, Yuki, and Kyo for a year. Rain looked out her window wondering this and Haru came by leaning on her doorpost. He responded to her question as if he read her mind.
" Maybe its because you ran away from the Sohma house for 4 months." Hatsuharu had said with seriousness in his voice.
Rain was a bitter person, but was very nice once you got to know her " Heh. Maybe not maybe its because this Toruh person isn't so great after all."
Hatsuharu ignored her comment and continued on "Where did you go away for those 4 months?"
Rain ignored him and grabbed her guitar case. He asked again "Where were you? We were all really worried sicked. Especially Akito."
Rain shut her suitcase after checking it once more and picked it up. She hated Akito and Akito hated her, but he would lie to the other Sohmas and say that he loved her. Although Hitori, Anyame, Shigure, and her knew Akito was severely abusive to Rain.
"Why do you care where I was, I'm sure that Kisa was taking up your time."
Rain hated Kisa. She hated her because when Kisa came Rain and Hiro weren't good as friends as before. Rain had a huge crush on Hiro when they were little. Hiro loved her and when Kisa came he forgot all about Rain and fell in love with Kisa. Then Hiro and Rain fought all the time. The now hated each other, but deep down inside Rain still had a crush on Hiro. She was jealous.
She hated Kisa because Kisa had taken Hatsuharu's time. Rain and him use to watch movies all the time together. He called her is little sis and when Kisa came he stopped calling her that and started calling Kisa that. It was as if Rain did not matter anymore. She felt isolated and depressed. Hitori noticed this and one day decided to take her on a walk. Rain felt happy because someone was actually paying attention to her and only her. When she stopped to get a soda she saw her birth mother. The mother's memories who were erased and the father that called Rain a screw up. In the park laid a baby and they all looked so happy.
Frustrated Rain ran away that very instant and didn't return until 4 months later. She came back a few months later. It was then that she heard of Toruh and that Akito wanted to send her to live with them for a while. So here she was packing for her trip. She walked out the door past Hatsuharu. Haru didn't move he continued to look in the room, but spoke to her narrowing his eyes with softness.
"We all care about Rain. It's that you can't accept that there are other children in this house who need help. You're not the only one with the curse. So quit acting like a little kid and toughen up. Kisa is tough and so should you be."
Rain walked away and her mind raced with anger 'Kisa, Kisa, Kisa that's all I ever here! Kisa did this and Kisa did that. Rain toughen up. Rains do this and Rain do that! I hope you all rot in hell!'
Rain stopped when she noticed where she was. She was standing a few inches away from Hiro. He glared at her and to Rain's surprise instead of glaring back she blushed and looked the other way. When she pulled herself together she glared back. Hiro and her were almost the same height she was only slightly smaller. Hiro glared and walked off saying "Don't feel like you need to come back wolf. We can make your room into something useful." He walked away.
Rain thought about what he said the whole way in the car. She sat in the back next to Hitroi. Hitori looked at her and out in the rain.
" Ugly weather were having."
Rain response, as she looked out the window "Hn. Whatever." A memory raced through Rain's mind and she couldn't get it out of her head. It was the day Hiro and her had her first fight.
Rain was about 7- years old and Hiro was the same age. Hiro was in an elementary school outfit. He and Kisa were under a tree near Rain. Rain was in blue jeans and an orange long sleeve shirt her long hair was in two low ponytails. She was playing hopscotch by herself with a depressing look on her face. Kisa had come in a few weeks earlier and everyone seemed to be amazed by her. Rain threw the rock to take another turn, but she threw it to hard. The rock hit Kisa on the head. Kisa had long blond hair and was wearing a pink skirt with a yellow blouse. Kisa rubbed her head "Ow."
Hiro looked up and glared at Rain. Rain didn't mean it and ran over to apologize to Kisa, but Hiro standing infront of Kisa stopped her. Rain thought that maybe he would invite her to play with them. She saw a look in his eyes as if he was angry so she started her apologies.
"Kisa I'm very so-"
Hiro snapped at her "Haven't you done enough! Go away! You stupid wolf don't you get it? I don't want you to bother Kisa anymore!"
Rain was taken back by surprise, but Kisa sat there rubbing her head that was now bleeding. Had she thrown the rock that hard? " Hiro I didn't mean it. Really I didn't."
Hiro snapped back at her and she always spoke after him.
"You liar! Wolfs should not be trusted"
"No Hiro I didn't mean it I swear. I threw the rock to h-"
Hiro glared and kicked her in the shin. Anger raised her voice. She taught herself that you have a right to defend yourself.
"Hiro I didn't mean it! You son of a bitch!" Rain only used those words when she was angry. She heard her birth mother say things like that. She ignored the pain in her shin and punched him in the face.
The fight began and within minutes both kids were hitting one another. Shiguri and Hitori came over right away seeing the sight. Hitori grabbed Rain and Shiguri held Hiro. Kisa ran off crying unable to do anything. Hiro saw this and yelled.
"Look what you did you stupid wolf. You stupid wolf. Go away no one loves you. Get it through your thick head! That's why your mother left you. That's why everyone hates you here. You stupid wolf go die!" Shiguri looked at Rain who wasn't struggling she looked at Hiro believing every word he said. Hiro broke away from Shiguri and after Kisa.
Shiguri and Hirtori looked at Rain. Rain had tears form in her eyes as she saw Hiro run. Shiguri brought out a handkerchief and kneeled down her eye level. He began to wipe some dirt off. "Rain don't believe what he said. He is just-". Rain pushed Shiguri away and ran off. Hiro was right. No one did love her and her only friends were herself. She had to survive on her own. She ran as far as she could and broke down into tears. That day Rain became bitter and started becoming more negative. She hated that day.
End of flashback (sry it took s0000 long.)
Rain looked at Hitori who looked at her. Rain looked away in anger and looked back out the window. She saw that she was coming up to Shiguri's house. Maybe this Toruh Honda could really help her. Maybe Toruh would just screw her over even more. Whatever the case Rain was ready. She was not going to give Toruh Honda mercy and show her "nice side". She didn't want a non-family member to take down her negative and bitter barrier. She had to stay tough. She folded her hands in her lap. Still the question remained. Could Toruh Honda really help her?
