"Good morning mother!" Tohru Honda woke up and picked up the photo of her deceased mother. As she dressed, she looked at her clock. "Looks like I'm up a bit earlier than usual. That means I can make a good breakfast for Yuki-kun, Kyo-kun, and Shigure-san!"
She made her way downstairs full of life and energy. She was surprised to see noises already coming from the kitchen. She poked her head in to see Kyo making breakfast.
"Kyo-kun? What are you doing up so early?" Tohru came to stand next to him.
"Ah! Oh! Tohru! Well I got up early today and well… I thought I'd make you breakfast since…" Kyo's voice turned into an incoherent mumble. His face was flushing noticeably.
"Oh, Kyo-kun! Thank you so much for thinking of me! It makes me so happy!" She smiled gently.
Tohru felt her cheeks turn hot. It did make her feel happy; too happy. Since when… has she been feeling this way about Kyo? Since when had she begun to forget how mother's voice sounded? She gazed longingly at Kyo's anxious gestures. She just wanted…
"You id-!" Kyo turned extremely red. "You… You're so hopeless!" was all he could manage to stammer. He tapped her gently on the head and went back to breakfast.
"Hee hee hee!" Tohru started giggling.
"What? What's so funny!" Kyo looked up from the food.
"It's just that, you look so cute when you get mad like that!" It took her a moment to realize what she had said. "Oh! I mean…" she blushed and covered her face with her hands.
Kyo smiled awkwardly. "What? Is that your way of saying I look funny when I'm mad?" he teased. He reached out to touch her hands and…
"Ah, to be young, naive! So oblivious to the love blossoming in front of our eyes!" Shigure pops in between them. "Kyo-chan, you lucky dog, Tohru-kun is the best bride you could have!" he joked, "Oh, I just want to steal her away!"
"What the hell are you talking about you pervert!" Kyo shouted. "Tohru getting married!"
Suddenly a black aura hung around them.
"Bad… premonition…" Shigure whispered, the hairs on the back of his neck standing up.
"What were you saying about our Tohru-kun?" Hanajima was at the doorway with sparks coming from her head, accompanied by Uotani, holding a lead pipe in her hands.
"I was joking of course! AHAHAHAHA, how funny! Well, so much work, so little time! I bid you all a good evening!" Shigure quickly retreated to his study.
"Good evening? It's six-thirty in the morning!" Uotani discarded the pipe and took off her shoes.
"Shigure doesn't exactly have a normal sleep pattern." Yuki staggered over in a daze, tugging absent-mindedly on his tie.
"Yuki-kun, you're up early! Oh and Uo-chan, Hana-chan, what are you doing over here?" Tohru started looking frantically from one person to another, not sure what to do.
"Don't worry about it Tohru-kun! Why don't you go get your things so we can walk to school together?" Hanajima smiled and took a piece of toast and began eating it. ("Hey, that's Tohru's you gothic witch!")
"Okay!" Tohru cheerfully hopped upstairs. As soon as she was out of earshot, Uotani slapped the wall to get everybody's attention.
"Listen up boys! Yeah, you too, you perverted old slacker!" She directed at Shigure who was trying to sneak by. "Tohru-kun's birthday is in a week, and we're planning to throw her a surprise party! We decided it should be at your house, considering my house is really small, and half the people who step into Hanajima's house get cursed."
"C-cursed…?" Sweat dripped down Shigure's forehead.
"You decided that without even asking!" Kyo cut in.
"Honda-san's birthday?" Yuki woke up from his half-asleep mode. "Sounds good to me."
"Yes! Yes! We must treat our flower- I mean Tohru-kun!" Shigure cut in.
"F-Fine... If it's for Tohru…" Kyo hesitantly gave in.
"For Tohru, eh? That was quick. My, my, is our little Kyo-chan growing up, or is he in L-O-V-…" A fist that landed on his nose, supplied by a beet-red Kyo, cut off Shigure.
"Oh my, this won't do, our Tohru-kun being stolen away…" Hanajima stated dangerously.
"W-What's being stolen!" Tohru came in just in time to stop Kyo from starting on Hanajima.
"Nothing. Now, shall we go?" Hanajima went through an attitude change and smiled at Tohru.
"YES!" Tohru put on her shoes. Yuki followed Hanajima, Uotani, and Tohru outside. "Kyo-kun, come on! Thank you for the breakfast!" She smiled warmly, making Kyo's insides melt.
"Y-Yeah…" He followed a small smile on his lips.
"Those two have got to grow up if they're going confess to each other or something." Shigure laughed to himself as the lively bunch walked down the path.
