I can't find a reason

To let go

Even though you've found a new love

And she's what your dreams are made of

I can find a reason

To hang on

What went wrong can be forgiven

Without you it ain't worth living


Sometimes I wake up crying at night

And sometimes I scream out your name

What right does she have to take you away?

When for so long you were mine

Why? Why did this happen? How could Yuki do this to me? Tohru cried on the floor as Yuki slammed the door shut. How could you treat your wife like this? I thought you loved me… Tohru's tears fell down her face and onto the floor.

"Mommy… What happen?" a little girl asked Tohru as she exited her bedroom a few feet down. "You should be sleepy."

"Oh… Kii, what are you doing awake?" she asked sorrowfully. "Go back to bed with your brother."

"Okie, Mommy." She reentered the room, and the door shut quietly. Tohru tried to stand up and fell back down. She tried again and went into the living room and sat on the couch. She let out a whimper of anguish. Yuki…Why? I don't get it. Why all of a sudden… Who am I kidding? It's been like this since Tiburo was born. Please come back to me, Yuki. Please…

Tohru woke up. Tears still ran down her eyes. Yuki… come back to me. She entered a closet in her room and grabbed a box of old photographs, grabbing the packet marked 'the happiest day of our lives'. She saw her in her uchikake(1), and him in his suit at the altar. Their smiles lit the entire room with joy… not anymore. The tears came faster. This was us…eight years ago. Look at us now. "YUKI!" Come back to me. She suddenly grew drowsy.

Took out all the pictures

of our wedding day

It was a time of love and laughter

A happy ever after

But even though those pictures

Have begun to fade

Please tell me she's not real

And you're really coming home to stay

Sometimes I wake up crying at night

And sometimes I scream out your name

What right does she have to take your heart away?

When for so long you were mine

"Mama, I'm hungy!" Tiburo told Tohru as he shook her awake. "It's beakfas time."

"Okay… I'll get right on it," Tohru stated quietly, still thinking of her husband. She stood up and walked to the kitchen. She grabbed some ingredients and started breakfast. She turned on a stove burner and put a frying pan on it. Tears sizzled as they fell onto the hot pan.

After breakfast, she got Kii ready for her trip to the park with her friends. The car picked her up soon after they finished getting ready. Tiburo was next. He was going to a toy museum with Kagura's boy. Soon, he was gone too.

Tohru picked up the phone and called Yuki's business number. "Hello… may I speak to Yuki Sohma."

She was put on hold for a few minutes until, "Hello, this is Yuki Sohma who may I ask is speaking?"

"It's your wife…Tohru, in case you forgot."

"What do you want?"

"I can't find a reason to let go of you."

"I can find a reason to let go of you."

"I have a reason to hang on to you. I can forgive you, but I can't live without you."

"I don't want forgiveness, and I don't want to come back! Don't you get it! We're over! Through! Done!"

"Over these two years, I woke up crying every night."

"Last two years?"

"Don't play dumb with me! I know you've been seeing another woman these last two years… I took out our wedding pictures last night. I saw our smile when we stood together at the altar. What happened to us? Do you know what it's been like for two years, knowing your husband has been cheating on you?"

"That was a long time ago. I was young, naïve. I made stupid decisions back then."

"So now I'm just a stupid decision!"

"That's not what I meant!"

"Tell me she's not real! Tell me you're coming home tonight… What right does she have to steal your heart away?"


"That's what I thought! I can give you two good reasons to stay with me! I bet she can't give you two good reasons to stay with her!"

"What are your reasons?"

"He's two and she's four and you know how much they love you! How can I tell them that you changed your mind about loving them? Think about them! Do you know how much you'll crush them?"


"I remember when you were mine. Those years ago, when you loved me! Now you don't! You found pleasure in some… in some… in some slut!"

"She's not a slut!"

"Who is she? Is she someone I know?"

"It's Isuzu."

"OH! You're telling me she's not a slut! She knows you and I are married! How is she not a slut!"

"Shut up, you hag! I never asked your opinion of her!"

"Hag… HAG! You thought I was beautiful when I married you, and now I'm a hag! You hypocrite! You made a vow to love me forever that day, eight years ago! Only eight years ago! If that's your idea of forever, I have news for you… forever is a lot longer than that!"


"Fine! I hate you too…" Tohru fell to the floor, tears falling faster than ever. "Why are you doing this to our family?" She cried into her knees for a few moments. "Come back to me… YUKI! Please… make our family whole again."

She called home from work sick. She worked at the local elementary school, where Kii would be going next year. Kagura usually takes them for the day, plays with them, feeds them, and buys them treats, all for free. Kyo doesn't have work today, does he?

She dialed the phone and it rang. Suddenly, Kyo answered the phone. "Hello…"

"Kyo… I need to talk to you."

"Now, whoever you are, I'm not a psychologist. I don't listen to the problems of people I don't know!"

"Kyo… it's Tohru. Please listen to me."

"Oh… Tohru. I didn't realize it was you. You sound so different. I guess I have never heard you this depressed before."

"Yuki left me. He left me and the kids for Rin."

"He did! Why that bastard… How could he do that to you of all people?"

"Could you move in with us and help us around the house a little? Perhaps give us some financial support too."

"Of course, I'll be over tomorrow."

Later, the children arrived home. Tohru ushered them into the living room. "Wha wong Mommy?" Kii asked as she saw the tears still were in her mother's eyes.

"Kii… Tiburo… Daddy's not coming back. He's gone, and you'll probably never see him again."

"Waaaaugh!" Tiburo screamed as he ran out of the living room and into his bedroom. Kii just sat on the couch and sobbed.

"Daddy, can' be gone! He Daddy! He meant to be here! Wih me, Tibuho, and you, Mommy," Kii eventually told her mother.

The next day, the doorbell rang, and Tohru answered it with sacs under her eyes and tears still flowing. Yuki stood there papers in hand. "All you have to do is sign this and we'll be done for. It will all be over."

"I won't sign it."


"I won't sign it! It will not be over. I will still want you back. The children will still be sad and unenergetic. The only thing that will change is that you could marry Rin!"

"Fine… I'll just leave them here for you to think about." Yuki gave Tohru the papers. "Goodbye… Ms. Honda."

"I'm not Ms. Honda yet! I'm Mrs. Sohma!" Yuki ignored her, got in his car, and drove off.

Soon afterward, Kagura arrived to pick up the children and was quickly off. Then Kyo arrived from his apartment, arms full of boxes. "Hello… Kyo."

"Where can I put these down? I need to get to work!" Kyo responded.

"Upstairs… There's a guest room that I tidied up for you."

"'Kay, be right back." After about four trips, he was out of boxes to take up and was ready to live there. "Well… I'm off to work."

"I have to go to… I'll see you after work then."

"Yep, I'll be right here to help with the household."


"See ya." Both of them entered their car and were off.

I can think of two good reasons

To be sure your love's not blind

He's two and she's four

And you know they adore you

So how can I tell them

That you've changed your mind

Sometimes I wake up crying at night

And sometimes I scream out your name

What right does she have to take your heart away?

When for so long you were mine

I remember when you were mine

Clarify note: YOU MUST READ THIS NOTE! Kyo isNOT married to Kagura. She married somebody else that was not in the series or manga.

Note: Cast your vote on who you think should get to stay with Tohru, Yuki or Kyo. It will all make sense after a couple of chapters.

(1)Uchikake- a kimono used in wedding ceremonies that is long on all sides. Uchikake are all white and usually are rented, not bought.
