HEY GUYS… THIS IS MY THIRD HITSUHINA FANFIC… YAY! I KNOW I SHOULD BE WORKING ON OPERATION PURPLEHEART AND ALL THAT AND ALL MY CRAP ASSIGNMENTS AT SCHOOL BUT LIKE A DRUG… SO ADDICTIVE…

DISCLAIMER: I DON'T OWN BLEACH OR THE SONG "THE PRETENDER" BY THE FOO FIGHTERS…

"Kira! Stop it! Geez!" Momo laughed as her blonde-haired friend playfully tickled her sides in the car.

"Kids! Be quiet back there!" Mrs and Mr Hinamori shouted from the front seats as they eyes quickly darted from the complicated map in front of them to the winding mountain road ahead. Kira then stopped tickling Momo and sat back in his seat.

"I can't believe we FINALLY finished middle school this year! YES!!! No more Sex Ed! WOO!!!"

The bun-haired girl laughed at the boy's cheer before beginning to sing along to a song on the radio.

"Keep you in the darkYou know they all pretendKeep you in the darkAnd so it all began"

Kira smiled then began singing along with her."Send in your skeletonsSing as their bones go marching in...againThe need you buried deepThe secrets that you keep are at the readyAre you ready?I'm finished making senseDone pleading ignoranceThat whole...defenseSpinning infinity, boyThe wheel is spinning meIt's never-ending, never-endingSame old story"

The two preteens then shifted their positions in the car so that they were back to back doing a mini shimmy-shimmy."What if I say I'm not like the others?What if I say I'm not just another one of your playsYou're the pretenderWhat if I say I will never surrender?What if I say I'm not like the others?What if I say I'm not just another one of your playsYou're the pretenderWhat if I say that I'll-"

"HONEY! THERE'S A BOY ON THE ROAD!" Mrs. Hinamori yelled out as Mr. Hinamori quickly swerved to the right to dodge the child. He looked just about Momo and Kira's age with stunning eyes and white or silverish hair…

That was all Momo could analyze in the mysterious figure before their car burst through the side barriers and was tumbling down the side of the mountain. Glass smashed and cut parts of her body and shredded her clothes. The petite girl screamed with her friend as the vehicle then hit a colossal tree and was totally wrecked. It was twisted…

All that Hinamori could remember now was the sharp, turquoise eyes that bored into her own chocolate brown ones before life took a cruel trip down the mountain…

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Momo blinked a couple of times as bright light poured into her eyes.

'So… bright… where am IMy body hurts…where IS everybody WAIT! NO!'

"KIRA! MUM! (A/N: I spell "mom" like "mum" coz I'm from Australia… Australians that r readin' this would know…) DAD!" The girl shot forward before doubling over in pain. A doctor with dark brown hair and hazel eyes with a stethoscope around his neck entered the room.

"Miss Hinamori, you shouldn't make sudden movements as your wounds will ope-"

"Where are Kira and my parents?"

The man's eyes filled with sympathy before replying.

"I'll let you visit them if you promise to stay calm."

"I promise! I just need to see that they're okay!"

A nurse then entered the room and helped Hinamori get into a wheelchair before pushing her to the other side of the hallway. The door before them that stopped Hinamori from seeing her loved ones didn't look too friendly. The doctor and nurse slid the door open together as Hinamori wheeled her way to three beds in the room.

'No… no… PLEASE! NO!'

Tears started to flow down the girl's bruised cheeks as her eyes absorbed the sight of the metal tables with corpses covered with white blankets on them. The nurse slowly made her way to all three tables and pulled down the sheets so that only the heads of the corpses were visible.

Hinamori's hands flew to her mouth as she made her way to her loved ones. Her parents looked totally peaceful besides the cuts and bruises in their faces with the deformation of their broken skulls. Izuru's corpse was the most and sent Hinamori into shrieking as there was a deep cut in his throat with pieces of glass stuck in it.

'Why am I still alive? What did my parents and Kira do to deserve this'

The next few weeks were hell as they were all about treatment, getting better and over that, the worst… psychologists.

"Momo, I need you to look on the brighter side of things."

"What brighter side? There is NO brighter side to this! Are you saying that I should be glad that my parents and best friend are DEAD?"

"Calm down, Momo. Don't think about their deaths but think about the happy times you had with them… they're happy now… ok?"

"NO! I'm NOT okay!"

"Momo, how 'bout this? Tell me a happy moment you had with your best friend. I may have happened at school, home, a camp or-"

"The last dissection you did with a dead rat when you poked it's spleen out and put it in your teacher's desk!" Momo retorted and crossed her arms in front of her chest. The psychologist sighed and got up from his chair and made his way to the door.

"Momo, I know this is hard but trust me, you'll have to get over this soon and start fresh! You're going to be living with your uncle starting the day after tomorrow…"

Hinamori's eyes widened at the sudden news.

'I'm going to be staying at my uncle's houseI mean, it's over a gazillion times better than this prison but… so it's just so… sudden…"
