Hoof Beats In My Heart--Chappie One!

Disclaimer: I do not own Tokyo Mew Mew, but I do own Kayla, Sundance, and any other horses yet to be named. I sure wish I owned Kish and Ryou though...

I came here 'cause I know alot of people come here and read TMM fanfics, so R&R! Constructive criticism is always appreciated, 'cause I want to know how to imrpove myself and my stories. Thankies! Enjoy the fanfic!

As Ichigo walked though the park, she could hear the hum of an acoustic guitar. She turned around to see a girl with bright green eyes and shoulder length dark brown hair with orange/red highlights playing her black and tan acoustic guitar, with her case laying open on the ground.

A group of people stopped to listen to her play, including someone that Ichigo held close to her heart, Masaya. 'It's Masaya!' she thought excitedly as she smiled and cheerfully walked over to him.

"Hey Masaya, what's up?" she asked him non-formally, yet still politely. She put on a very big smile; ready to hear whatever he would say.

"Oh, Hello Ichigo!" he said. He said politely, smiling back. 'Gawsh, look at his handsome smile! He could beat that stupid Kish any day!' she thought. Before she knew it, her excitement had taken a hold of her, making her black ears and tail pop out. She gasped and quickly hid from the crowd.

"Oh, darn! I hope no one saw me back there, especially not Masaya" she thought aloud. "What am I going to tell Masaya? I'm sure he's looking for me"

"I think you look cute as a kitty, kitten" a none too familiar voice stated in a highly flirtatious tone.

"Kish! Why don't you just leave me alone already? I'm with Masaya!" she said angrily.

"Actually, I didn't come here to see you for a change," he paused. "I came to let out a Kimera Anima!" He stated cheerfully. "Although seeing you here made it worth while" he said quietly as he moved in closer, and planted a soft kiss on Ichigo's lips.

"What was that for?" Ichigo yelled at him quite angrily, about to slap him. It seemed as though she had forgotten all about his comment on letting out a Kimera Anima.

"Oh, but I love my kitten!" Kish complained like a little boy not getting his way.

"Well too bad, because I love Masaya!" she said harshly and walked away. Luckily, her ears and tail had disappeared again. She walked up to Masaya and tapped him on the shoulder.

"There you are Ichigo! I was worried about you," he said sweetly, and as if he was relieved that she was safe.

"Thanks for caring so much! I really just went to the bathroom!" she lied, not wanting him to get suspicious. 'Going to the bathroom? C'mon, I know I can make up better excuses than that!' she thought.

"Okay" he said. He turned around to watch the brunette girl play her guitar, but saw that she was already done. "You missed the guitarist," he said.

"Oh darn, maybe we can ask her to play another song" Ichigo suggested. She smiled, hoping the her beloved Masaya would agree with her, but then again, if they didn't, they could go out and get ice cream. She liked that idea.

"Great idea!" he said, smiling. He, along with Ichigo, walked over to the girl who was playing her guitar.

"Hi there! I'm Ichigo Momomiya, and this is my friend, Masaya Aoyama" she said brightly to the guitarist girl, indicating Masaya.

"We were wondering if you could play another song," Masaya said, smiling at the girl.

"Hi! The names Kayla. I could sure play a song for y'all" she said with a southern accent. She picked up her guitar and played Standing Still by Jewel. She sang the song on perfect pitch, and her accent couldn't be heard as she sang.

"Cuttin' through the darkest night
In my two headlights
I'm trying to keep it clear
But I'm losing it here
To the twilight
There's a dead end to my left
There's a burning bush to my right
You aren't in sight
You aren't in sight

Do you want me
Like I want you?
Or am I standing still?
Beneath the darkened sky
Or am I standing still?
With the scenery flying by
Or am I standing still?
Out of the corner of my eye
Was that you that passed me by?

Mothers on a stoop
Boys in souped-up coupes
On this hot summer night
Between fight and flight
Is the blind man's sight
And the choice that's right
I roll the window down
Feels like I'm gonna drown
In this strange town
I feel broken down
I feel broken down

Do you need me
Like I need you?

Or am I standing still?
Beneath the darkened sky
Or am I standing still?
With the scenery flying by
Or am I standing still?
Out of the corner of my eye
Was that you that passed me by?
Sweet sorrow is the call tomorrow
Sweet sorrow is the call tomorrow

Do you love me
like I love you?

Or am I standing still?
Beneath the darkened sky
Or am I standing still?
With the scenery flying by
Or am I standing still?
Out of the corner of my eye
Was that you that passed me by?

Oh, you're passing me by
Passing me by

Do you need me like I need you to?
Do you want me like I want you?
Or are you passing me by?
Or am I standing still?"

She sang beautifully. When she finished, Ichigo and Masaya clapped for her.

"Thank you, thank you" she said, bowing. She smiled and started to put her guitar back in its guitar case.

"Wow, you play and sing great!" Ichigo said. "I'm so jealous of you! I couldn't sing if I tried," she said almost angrily.

"That's okay, everyone has their ups and downs! I never learned how to ride a bike!" she said. "I didn't need to though, 'cause they taught me how to ride horses!" she joked.

"Wow, you ride horses?" Ichigo asked energetically. "That's so cool! I can't ride horses, they don't like me," she mumbled.

Masaya laughed, making Ichigo blush. 'He's laughing at me! This isn't good!' she thought, becoming completely embarrassed.

"Well, I better head home y'all, my parents'll get mad at me again for being gone so long" she said, her accent as heavy as ever. Little did they know, a pair of golden eyes watched them all leave, waiting to pounce on this southern girl. The mischievous and perverted alien was interested in using her as mew mew bait.

As Kayla walked home with her guitar, she thought about her encounter with the pair of locals. "Man, I miss the old place inMississippi," she thought aloud. "It was a lot warmer down there, and less big cities that got in the way of nature" Her guitar case bounced off her back, and then hit her back, and then bounced off, and so on as she walked back to her home. It was a long walk, but she was used to it. She loved taking long walks in wide-open areas. She loved nature and animals, but especially horses. 'Maybe sometime I can ride Sundance out by the park. I hope they don't have an equine law in this wacky place' she thought.

"She's likes nature and hates the big cities…" Kish said to himself. "And she loves animals. I'll follow her home and use some of her horses for Kimera Animas" He teleported away.

"Home sweet home at last" Kayla said as she walked through the gate leading into a large pasture.

In the distance, a small shape came at her at full speed. The beating of hooves could be heard, accompanied by a melodious neigh. The figure grew larger and larger until a large stallion shown.

"Sundance!" Kayla exclaimed, running up to her horse. Sundance whinnied and nuzzled her as she patted his neck lovingly. Kayla smiled and walked over to his left side. She carefully, yet quickly climbed onto his back and kicked him, sending him into a canter towards the barn where the other horses were kept.

Kish watched the pair as they ran of to a large red barn, where he could tell there were more horses. "Time to make my move…" he thought aloud, as he teleported into the barn. 'Now it is time to show what you were created for' Kish thought as he created a small parasite alien. It looked like a small transparent jellyfish. It attached itself to one of the larger stallions, and in mere seconds, what was once a stallion, was now a giant, ugly, alien, Kimera Anima.

"We're here boy" she said as she dismounted Sundance, and led him into the barn. Just when she was about to put him into his stall, she saw the biggest, ugliest, five eyed alien horse she had ever seen. Well, really, it was the only five-eyed alien horse she had ever seen. "Oh my gosh…" she said quietly as she backed away from the huge horse…thing.

Kish watched this take place from a corner in the barn. "I should use live bait more often" he snickered. The large horse attempted to run Kayla over, seeing as it was so huge.

"What the heck?" Kayla said as she tried to dodge the attack, but still got hit partially. With a loud neigh, Sundance reared up on his hind legs, and tried to ward off the bigger horse.

"No! Sundance, get out of here!" Kayla yelled at Sundance. As if he understood her, he quickly galloped out of the barn and into a far corner of his pasture. The large horse lunged at her again, disabling her legs, and knocking her unconscious.

gasp Oh no! Kayla is uncoscious, and Kish is about to kidnap her and use her as live bait to lure the Mew Mews! Does he seceretly have any feelings for her, or does he just think of her as another human? FInd out in the next installment of, HOOF BEATS IN MY HEART! Bye byes, I must get to work on the next chapter ;3
