Chapter One: BE MY ESCAPE

"Finally after two months, I'm back here" said a sixteen year old girl in a pleased tone as she stood in front of a building…

the wind blew a refreshing morning breeze of spring as the leaves rustled along with this pink colored snow flakes that danced with her long auburn hair that was tied in a single pony.

A small smile was painted on her face as her chestnut orbs that matched her locks perfectly watched the students entered the building in front of her…

"The wind is so refreshing, here outside" she said as a flash of memory engulfed her mind…

Flash Back

"I wonder when I will ever have the chance to walk outside again and have a normal life" said a young auburn haired girl as she gazes at her window…

She was quite pale, frail and too fragile as she sat on her bed covered by white sheets as only the beep of the monitor next to her, was the only music she can hear aside from the time to time calling for a doctor.

Gloomily, she watched outside as she saw, from the window of her room, children where laughing, people of her age was looking healthy and fine…

she sighed a little "I hope that… I'll be able to go back to my school… I'm tired of having a personal tutor… and more I don't even know why I am here.." she said as she glanced away from the window..

Suddenly she heard the door opened, as she expected, a lady wearing a white coat and has a stethoscope around her neck and a medical chart on her right hand entered the room, it was her physician.

"Good Morning, I can see you are feeling fine now" she greeted her with a smile even though what she says was the opposite of the reality.

A small smile crept out of her lips…

"Good Morning too doctor…" she said in a sad tone "Doctor, may I ask you something?"

"go ahead, tell me…" the Doctor said as she was recording the readings on the monitor, but she stopped all of a sudden when she heard the question this young girl gave her…

"Tell me… How long do I have… to live?" she said in a serious tone

The doctor dropped her pen, as she was taken aback by this question…

"That's a stupid question, don't be silly… you only have… you are fine now" she replied as she bent down and picked the pen she dropped

"I see" she replied "so does that mean… I can go out and go back school?" she asked again

This time there was a moment of silence, she thought that the doctor might say no but…

"I can allow you to go out…" she replied

As the young auburn haired girl heard this answer, her face brightened with happiness…

"Really!" she exclaimed as she was happy to hear her answer

"But…"the doctor continued "you must know that, you can't and should not get acquainted with things that will drag you to emotional distress and so does physical"

"Yes, I swear I will not do that" she said

"So then that settles it, I'll let you out after a week, have fun and I don't want to see you here back so soon, understand?" she said to her

"Yes ma'am" she replied as a giggle came out of her

The doctor then turned her back from her as she placed the pen inside her pocket with a sad thought in her mind "I should let you enjoy your…" she thought and then gently closed the door

The young auburn haired girl, was then filled by happiness, still oblivious of her current standing. She then reached for her pencil and sketch pad as she began to sketch the view of trees outside her window…

End of Flashback

"I'm going to have fun as I promised" she thought as he began to walk

but all of a sudden, she heard someone called her name…

"Mikan!" a very familiar voice high pitched voice coming from her back

As she heard this call, she quickly glanced back, to see who it was…

"Anna!" she exclaimed in a very cherry tone…

Meanwhile…

From a distance, a group of girls was crowding the gate… as a peculiar boy along with his best friend entered the campus ground…

"Look its Natsume and Ruka" a girl squealed in excitement as they saw the boys coming…

A stunning raven haired boy, with eyes crimson as a dark red rose came in, his uniform was worn messily making him look cool and behind him was a handsome boy with eyes blue as the ocean and blonde hair.

"Nothing new" said the raven haired boy as they were welcome by a bunch of girls but something caught his eyes, not far from them, he noticed a new face, but she wasn't with the crowd…

"natsume what's wrong?" his best friend, Ruka asked as his friend seemed to notice something…

"nothing at all, let's go" Natsume replied as they began to walk towards their class

Just from a distance, the young auburn haired girl noticed the girls crowding up some boys she knows nothing about…

"hmp… I swear, I will never get acquainted with people like them, its going to be trouble some…" Mikan said as she trailed off the crowd while they were walking

Anna then giggled a little and replied to what she said

"never say never…" she said

Time passed by quickly, as mikan entered her class, she was then called by her homeroom teacher and was asked to pick out a club, for it was necessary for her to have one…

"As usual, I'm going to join the arts club" she said as she was walking along the path were cherry blossoms grow…

"I think, this is were the club is located" she said as stood in front of a door… "I'll go inside and sing up.."

Meanwhile

On the other side of the door, there was an argument going on…

"I said I will not dance with that girl" said a raven haired boy

"But… na-natsume… we have no choice, the students voted for you and Miss Shoda to be the lead characters for the upcoming presentation for the school fair" said a blonde haired boy in a terrified tone

"I'm out of here" was Natsume's simple reply

he then began to walk towards the door as he was about to push it open, someone pulled it open…

A loud thud was heard as the door opened widely….

"Ouch… that hurt" said an auburn haired girl as she closed her eyes…

slowly she opened her eyes, her eyes met with a pair of tantalizing crimson orbs… their faces were near each other, as a boy with raven hair was on top of her with his hands and knees as his support…

"This is the girl from before" Natusme thought

Running footsteps were heard as a group of people approached them…

"natsume… are you alright?" Asked a green eyed perm haired girl

"I know, now what to do" Natsume thought

Quickly, he stood up as Mikan sat up, still complaining from her painful fall, but all of a sudden, someone grabbed her arm and pulled her up… and before she knew it, the boy with raven hair and crimson eyes, placed his arms around her waist…

"She'll be my partner for the presentation, if you want me to be in it" Natsume said with a smirk on his face…

"ehhhhhhhh!" Mikan said "Hey, hold on… wait I don't want t-" she continued but Natsume covered her mouth before she could voice out what she wants to say..
