Hello everyone!! Well, this is the first thing i've posted, and it's not mine lol. This is my friend lovingninja. She doesn't have an account, so I let her put it on mine.
Disclaimer: Niether me nor my friend own Fruit's Basket, However, my friend DOES own Kiri Sohma, and... I'm left with nothing... lol Enjoy!!
"Finally...I'm back." a girl whispered to herself as she walked through the enterence of Shigure's home.
Tohru, who was outside hanging laundry, noticed the girl. Orange hair? Orange eyes? And...an orange cat doll? Who is she?
"Um, excuse me?"
The girl turned to look at Tohru and smiled. "Hello." The girl was her age and had short orange hair about to the bottom of her ears, and bright orange eyes. She wore a baggy black shirt with baggy camo pants. She also carried an orange cat doll in her arms with an orange backpack on her back.
'She must really like the color orange..'. Tohru thought."H-Hello, I'm Honda Tohru. I live here. May I ask who you are?"
"I'm Sohma Kiri."
"Yup! I'm here looking for someone."
"Yeah, I'm here to visit him. Is he here?"
"Uh, yes, w-would you like to come inside?"
"Yes! I haven't been in ShiShi-chan's house in a long time!"
"'ShiShi-chan'? You mean Shigure-san?"
'I wonder who this girl is?' "W-Well, please follow me."
Kiri nodded and followed Tohru inside the house. After removing her shoes she continued to follow her into the living room.
"Shigure-san! Yuki-kun! Kyo-kun! There's a guest here! She's come to see Kyo-kun!" Tohru called.
The three men walked down the stairs, Kyo dreading it, thinking it was Kagura.
"Tohru, who's here?" Kyo asked.
"Tohru-kun, who would come here to visit Kyo-kun?"
"Watch it y-!" Kyo almost finished his yelling, but stopped when he saw Kiri. In fact, they all stood frozen.
Kiri's face lit up with a smile and tears formed in her eyes. "N-Nii-san!" she ran to Kyo and gave him a hug, but surprisingly he didn't transform. Kyo just stood there, concern and confusion on his face as he stared at Kiri the girl who called him Nii-san.
"N-Nii-san?" Tohru questioned.
"Nii-san I've missed you so much!" Kiri cried.
"Jeez, Kiri-kun's here? That's a shock." Shigure sighed.
"I didn't think she would come here." Yuki then too sighed.
"Um, e-excuse m-me, but w-who is she?" Tohru asked.
Everyone stopped and looked at her. Kyo sighed. "Can we go to the table and explain?"
"I think that'd be best for Kiri-kun, she needs to relax." Shigure said.
They all walked into the dining room and sat around the table. Kiri still clinging onto Kyo for dear life.
"So, So who's Kiri-chan?"
"Excuse me, Tohru? I only liked to be called Kiri or Kiri-kun."
"Oh, I'm so sorry!" Tohru apologized, freaking out of course.
"Kiri, don't be mean to Tohru. Don't tease her. Don't confuse her. Do nothing to her."Kyo warned.
"Anyway, Kyo-kun, I think you owe Tohru-kun an explanation." Shigure ordered.
"I was getting to that!" Kyo snapped. "Well, Kiri is my younger sister. She's my twin."
Tohru almost fainted. 'T-T-T-Twin S-s-s-s-s-s-sister?! K-k-k-k-k-k-k-kyo-kun has a twin sister!?'
"Honda-san, are you all right?" Yuki asked from concern.
"Y-y-y-y-y-yes! I-i-i-i-i-i-it's j-j-j-j-j-just a sh-sh-sh-sh-sh-shock"
"You mean you never told her about me Nii-san?" Kiri pouted.
"I'm sorry, Kiri, it's just..."
"It's just that we weren't sure if or when you would come back." Shigure plainly answered.
"Back? Where was she before?" Tohru asked regaining from her shock.
"Honda-san, she was sent away, by Akito."
"Because, I made him angry." Kiri explained.
"I was trying to find the way to break the curse, and at the same time, I was trying to cinvince the others to get a back bone and stand up to Akito. I even said that to his face. Just because I'm not part of the zodiac, doesn't mean I'm not important to this family. It doesn't mean, I'm not like them. I'm cursed too"
Tohru was once again shocked. "That's why, That's why"
"That's why Nii-san didn't transform, yes."
"It's because, we're twins. We were born together, and the cat split in two."Kyo explained. Now, Tohru did faint. Too much shock and information.
'Well, I wonder who this girl is? She seems special...I wonder why she's here? And, I wonder why Nii-san doesn't want me to do anything? This, should be interesting.' Kiri thought as the men gathered around Tohru and tried to wake her.
"Tohru?! Are you all right?!" Kyo yelled shaking her by the shoulders to wake her up.
"H-Huh? Wh-What happened?" Tohru asked, immediatley sitting up.
"You, fainted. After what Kiri and I told you." Kyo explained helping her sit up straight. "Where is Kiri-kun."
"She went to the bathroom, said she felt sick or something."
"Sick?! She's not sick!" Shigure yelled coming into the room, dragging Kiri in by her shirt collar. He was obviously mad.
"So, sorry, ShiShi-chan. I didn't mean it." she said casually.
"What'd she do this time?" Kyo asked.
"She wrecked my books! She tore out every page of my beautiful books."
"Right, beautiful isn't what I'd call it." she snickered.
"Nii-san, I was bored." she pouted. "I want to see the others."
"I'm not sure that's a good idea." Yuki stated, also coming into the room with a wash cloth for Tohru.
"Why not, Yuckie-chan?"
"Akito might get mad. And, don't call me 'Yuckie-chan'! I told you that before."
"Sorry, sorry! Besides, you think I care about Akito"
"Kiri...don't even go there"
"Nii-san, you people need a freakin backbone"
"Here, Honda-san, just ignore her." Yuki whispered as he handed her the cloth.
"Thank you." she said, taking the clothe and wiping her face. 'I-I thought she was so nice! Why did she change?'
"Kiri! I told you before! Don't bother!"
"No, Nii-san I have to! It's for the good of everyone! I just want them to be happy! I want them to live! Beyond the curse! Akito's holding them back"
Slap! Kyo slapped her across the face.
"K-kiri, just, forget it." he said.
Tears formed once again in her eyes and she ran out of the room.
"Kiri-kun!" Tohru called.
"Tohru-kun, let her be."
"She's like her big brother, she just needs to be alone."
Tohru was silent. All of this was happening so fast it was hard for her to understand. Who was Kiri? She looked at Kyo. He just stood in the same place, just standing there with nothing but hurt on his face. Tohru then looked to where Kiri sat, the doll of the orange cat sat there alone.
Kyo finally moved, which caused everyone to stare at him.
"I'm going to the roof." was all he said before slamming the door shut behind him.
Tohru then looked at Yuki and Shigure. "Who is Kiri-kun"
"Kiri, is..." Yuki tried to start, but couldn't find words.
"Different." Shigure answered. "She's not like the rest of us who are cursed."
"No, she's even different from him."
"Kiri-kun, is half cat, and she always hated herself for that. She's a loving person like you, but also she can be a pain in the butt. She has hated herself because she is the half who doesn't transform into the monster. Kyo- kun is the only one. Kiri feels like, if she was born first, she could have had the monster. She has been trying to find the way to break the curse, like some people we know. She also tried to give us a back bone as she calls it. Every night she would come to our houses and tell us what life would be like if we tried to live our own lives"
"Kiri, tried to convince us that we shouldn't pay attention to the bond." Yuki continued. "She said that we should act like Akito was just a normal person, and we should treat ourselves that way too. Not act like we're cursed. For years she went in the order of the zodiac. I was the one she always visited first. Then, Hatsuharu, Kisa, Momiji, Hatori, Nii-san, Rin, Hiro, Ritsu, Kureno, Shigure, and lastly Kagura. Every night. A new story, new hope. She tried to make us feel equal to 'God' and normal people. We were still young. We didn't realize it, but deep down, she was trying to also set herself free, and Kyo. So she too can think of herself and Kyo as equals. Even though, she still tried to help us all the most"
"She, just wants you all to be happy"
Shigure and Yuki nodded.
Shigure began to speak."Every time something went wrong she tried to fix it, for everyone. When Akito-san would do something to one of us, she'd yell at him. She was always hurt from her fights with him. She was especially mad when it came to her brother. Every New Year's, she'd come to the banquet and yell her promise right in Akito-san's face. Until five years ago, Akito-san ordered her to leave, far away. At first she wouldn't listen, but he threatened her, that if she didn't leave he'd..." He trailed off.
"Sorry, I'm not allowed to say. Especially since Kyo-kun is here"
"Shigure, I didn't know what the threat was either, could you tell me?" Yuki asked.
"Akito-san told me not to tell, Yuki-kun. Are you trying to get me in trouble with 'God'? " Yuki glared at him.
"Why don't you ask her yourselves?" Shigure asked, then left the room.
"No, don't be Honda-san, you didn't do anything."
"I pried, that was wrong of me."
"She would've told you herself anyway. I bet she was planning on doing that when you woke up"
Tohru stared at Yuki, then smiled.
"Thank you, Yuki-kun." She stood up and layed the clothe on the table.
"I'm going to look for her."
"I'll be waiting right here."
Tohru smiled once more and ran outside. Where would she be? Wait! She's like Kyo-kun! So, she might be..."I'm going to the roof" The roof! Tohru ran to the ladder and climbed up to the roof.
When she crawled onto the roof, she saw a crying Kiri being held in the arms of a crying Kyo. Kyo's tears went down silently, while Kiri's went down with sobs.
"I-I'm s-s-so, so-so-r-r-y! Nii-Nii-s-s-san."
"It's okay, I know. I'm sorry, too. I didn't mean to hit you."
"N-No! I-it's m-my, my fault."
"Hey, don't cry okay? I'll take you to see Shishou later, how's that"
Kiri didn't answer, she just held on to her brother tighter. Kyo kissed the top of her head and stroked her hair to calm her down.
"Nii-san, did you see it? I brought our toy."
"Yes, I saw it."
"Are you mad at me?"
"No, I'm glad you're back, and that you brought our toy.
'Kyo-kun...he really is a good brother...and a good person.' Tohru smiled as she stepped back on the ladder, not wanting to spoil the happy moment.
"Please, Tohru-chan, don't go"
Tohru stopped dead in her tracks. She turned around to see Kyo looking surprised to see her, and Kiri with a soft smile.
"T-Tohru, why are you here"
"I was looking for you and Kiri-kun, I wanted to talk more, if that's okay? I really didn't mean to interrupt you two"
"It's okay!" Kiri laughed. "Come over, sit next to Nii-san and me"
Tohru slowly walked towards them and sat between both of them, making it a triangle. Tohru then looked at Kyo, his eyes and cheeks red from crying, tears were still in his eyes. Are those because he missed Kiri-kun? Or, because he hit her?
"Well, what did you want to talk about?" Kyo asked. He was a little uncomfortable and wanted to leave quickly, knowing that Tohru saw him cry wasn't the best thing in the world.
"Kiri-kun and Kyo-kun! I want to know more about you two as twins"
There was a moment of silence. "Well, there's not much to tell." Kyo said.
"What about your toy? The cat doll"
"Oh, that? It's a toy that I would carry around with me and force Nii-san to play with me and it. Shishou bought it for me"
"Kyo-kun, you didn't like the toy"
"Not really...You know, I'll go inside, you guys can talk about whatever you want." Kyo said as he stood.
He walked over to the ladder and climbed back down. When he entered the house, Kiri looked at Tohru.
"You know it, don't you"
"How Akito's a girl, and how Kureno isn't part of the zodiac curse anymore"
Tohru's eyes widened in surprise. 'I thought Kureno-san, Shigure-san, Ayame-san and Hatori-san were the only ones who knew! I thought that no one but Akito-san knew about Kureno-san!' "Y-Yes"
"Don't act so surprised. I'm different from them. I can see things they don't"
Tohru was silent.
"About that toy. My brother always hated it"
"Because it's an orange cat"
Duh, why didn't she see it before? It's a cat!
"Why do you have it then"
"It was after my mother died, and Shishou took us in. It was our first birthday with him. He took us to the toy store, since he didn't know what we wanted"
"Shishou! Look! I want this! Is that okay?" Kyo asked as he ran towards Shishou with a big round blue ball.
"Of course it is! It's your birthday! You can have anything you want!" Shishou said with a smile.
"Thanks Shishou!" Kyo hugged him.
Shishou looked up from Kyo's hug and saw little Kiri, with long hair to her back, and a purple and blue dress to her knees, holding a cat doll that was orange.
"What is it Kiri"
"Could I have this"
Before Shishou could answer, Kyo walked over to his sister. Kyo raised his hand and smacked the doll out of Kiri's small hands.
"No!" he yelled. "You can't have it! It's stupid! Why would you want a stupid cat doll"
"Kyo, don't say that. If Kiri wants it she can have it"
"No, she can't! I'm the big brother! I say if she can have it or not! I say she can't have it!" Kyo started to cry,
Kiri was already in sobs.
Shishou hugged Kyo to calm him down. "Kiri, why do you want the doll"
"Be-because...it...it rem-minds m-m-me of N-nii-san. I-I wa-ant to n-nev-ver for-forget him"
Kyo pulled away from Shishou and turned to look at Kiri. He had made his little sister cry, and all she wanted was to love him...Kyo walked once more to Kiri and hugged her.
They both fell to their knees as they cried with eachother loudly, with Kyo repeating that he was sorry. Shishou smiled and grabbed the ball and the cat, and payed for them before coming back for the two kittens.
End of Flashback
"Nii-san, would never play with it. Everytime he saw me playing with it, he'd get mad at me. There were times though when he would play with me with that doll. It was not only our curse, it was our toy as well"
"You really love Kyo-kun, don't you"
"Yes, he's the most important person in the world to me. I'll do anything for him"
"A-Are you...are you in"
"In love with Nii-san"
Tohru nodded. Kiri laughed.
"No! No way! That's just plain weird! He's my twin brother"
"I don't blame you for that though. I know who's in love with who. Yu-chan for a classmate. Hatsu-kun is in love with Izu-chan. Ki-chan for Hi-chan. Moji-san...not yet. Hari-sama...not yet, or anymore.Yame-kun...maybe his assisstant Mine-chan-chan, or no one. Izu-chan for Hatsu-kun. Hi-chan for Ki-chan. Ri-san-chan for, maybe ShiShi-chan's editor. Kuno-kun, is for a random girl. ShiShi-chan for Akito. Kagu-san, she loves no one"
"But, Kagura-san is in love with Kyo-kun"
"No, she isn't. She pretended to love him. For her own selfish reasons. So she wouldn't feel so low of herself. You can even ask Nii-san"
Tohru was quiet. How could this girl know so much and be gone for so long?
"Nii-san, is for you"
"Nii-san, is in love with you"
Tohru blushed. "I-I don't think Kyo-kun...I'm sure he would have said something"
"By the look on your face I say that you love him too"
Tohru blushed brighter. "I-I"
"I won't tell anyone anything. I know a lot. About everything. For some reason, I was born with a gift to see things. I don't know why though"
"Kiri-kun, how do you know so much when you were gone for so long"
"My brother. Because we are one spirit. In my dreams, I can see through his eyes. And he can see through mine"
"Why did you leave? How did Akito-san threaten you"
"ShiShi-chan loves to talk about me." she smirked. "Akito threatened to hurt everyone everyday until I left. Including my brother. So, I left"
"You, are a kind person, Kiri-kun. That's what I've heard from Yuki-kun and Shigure-san. I believe it"
"Don't, I'm anything but kind, I'm a cruel unforgiving, hateful person. Nii-san is the one who is kind. Wait until I stay here longer. Soon, even you will hate me too"
"Shigure-san said that you hated it when someone was hurt especially by Akito-san. How did you feel about Hatori-san, when he was hurt"
"I tried to kill her. I tried to kill Akito. We got into a fist fight, I could've killed her. They all stopped me, even Hari-sama. I cried and hugged him, he forgave my actions, but I wasn't sorry. Even now, since the first day I met her, I want to kill Akito. I've wanted to kill many people"
"I guess I wanted to kill everyone's parents, except for maybe Hi-chan's mom and Ri-san-chan's mom. I hated their parents for allowing them to be so miserable. And, all those people who made fun of them. I just wished them dead, especially Akito"
"That proves you're a good person. If you want to protect them"
"You still don't get it, a good person wouldn't want someone dead. You're a good person, do you want anyone to die by your hands"
"My brother just wishes people dead, he wants to hurt them with his hands. Not kill them. He is a good person. I want to kill people with my own hands. I'm a horrible person." Kiri smiled as she looked at Tohru.
"Will you be my friend? Tohru?"
"Of course I'll be your friend!" Tohru looked upset like she was about to cry. She still didn't fully understand Kiri, but she did just meet her. She did want to be her friend.
"Kiri! Tohru! Get down now! Dinner's ready!" Kyo called.
"Did you foget? Nii-san is actually a good cook." she laguhed.
"Hey, did you two hear me"
"Yes, coming Nii-san!"Kiri grabbed Tohru's hand. "Come on"
"I want to go to school with you guys, and live here too!" Kiri yelled in the middle of dinner.
"What? Where's this coming from?" Kyo asked.
"Why do you think I'm here?! Not just to say hi and leave"
"Why do you have to live here?! You book wrecker!" Shigure cried.
"Kiri, I don't think that would be best, you're too sensitive to things, school might not be the best thing." Yuki said.
"I think it's a wonderful idea!" Tohru stated with a smile.
"Yay! I knew I could count on you Tohru!" Kiri hugged Tohru.
"Tohru, think about it"
"Kyo-kun, I know you're worried, but I think having Kiri-kun could be a good thing. You two are siblings who love eachother. You are one spirit. You need to be together"
Everyone sighed. "All right. I'll call the school tonight after dinner." Shigure said.
"You're lucky you came just in time, too. School doesn't start in another week." Kyo said.
"I always have perfect timing with everything!" Kiri boasted.
"Kiri-kun, do you take martial arts with Kyo-kun?" Tohru asked.
"Yeah! I'm the best too! I can even beat Yu-chan"
"We were kids back then, I'm better now. I could beat you any day." Yuki glared.
"Wanna try that, Yuckie-chan"
"Please, don't fight! Please!" Tohru started to freak out.
"All right, Honda-san, we won't fight. Just calm down"
"Tohru, you're so cool!" Kiri yelled with a hug.
"God, I hate women." Kyo sighed.
"Not, true Nii-san! I know you love two women"
"Who would that be"
"How the hell did you come up with that one"
"Nii-san, don't hide it. You know I can see what you see and feel what you feel. Your heart has a special
place for Tohru, and deep down you wish to tell her. You are just to shy and scared!" she teased, giggling.
Kyo blushed. Tohru blushed.
Kyo stood up and walked up the stairs and slammed the door to his room. "Go to hell Kiri"
"I love you too!" she laughed.
"Did I miss something here?" Shigure asked, now just getting off the phone.
"Kiri came up with this idea that Kyo loves Honda-san"
"Well, that's nothing new. We all know it"
"Then, he left. Too embarrassed I guess"
"Once again, nothing new"
"You're kidding! Kyo-kun could never love me"
Right, they weren't suppose to tell her...crap.
"Sorry, Tohru-kun! It was a joke a joke!"
"Sorry, Tohru-kun! It was a joke, a joke!"
"Yeah, Honda-san, it was just a joke. Don't get worked up about it."
'Jeez, these guys really need a freakin back bone, especially Nii-san.'
