Between school, soccer practice, and Algebra II, I've had hardly any free time. So, I'm really sorry for the super late update!! But it's Spring Break now!!
By the way, I'm over my phase with Prince of Tennis. I'm into Shugo Chara and Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya now, lol. Well, don't worry. I'll still work on my story whenever I have time (who knows when that will be D:)
Well, thanks for all the reviews!! Now on with the chapter! A couple things shall be revealed!
Disclaimer: This will cover for the rest of the story. It is quite obvious that I obviously do not own Beauty Pop. Obviously.

Those were the sounds of keyboard keys being pushed as a man who seemed to be about twenty one typed in a website's URL.
He stopped typing and instead, used the mouse to scroll down through a certain list that's come to be familiar to him. He spotted a certain name and sighed.
"Mika," he called.
A girl who was in the opposite corner in the room snapped up. She seemed to be about nineteen. "Yes?" she answered.
"Come over here," he said as he motioned with his hand. "Look at this."
The girl, "Mika" apparently, ran over to him. She leaned over his shoulder to look at his laptop. The light from the screen lit up her eyes, which were green.
"Look," the guy said, pointing to something on the screen.
Mika looked, and then stared at it. Then she straightened up as she shook her head.
"Is he stupid, or what? It's been almost a month since we burned down his house! And I wrote a warning note and everything! I even took his scissors!" Mika exclaimed as she pointed to a bag that contained Narumi's scissors.
The man pinched the bridge of his nose as he sighed. "Obviously, that wasn't enough. I guess that means its time for our next move."
Meanwhile at Rykofu High…
Kiri sighed as she closed the door to the S.P.'s room. Today had been yet another training day. She was getting a little tired of them.
Kiri yawned as she walked to get her shoes. She was about to leave when she saw somebody step in front of her.
The person was female, about 5'5", had elbow length brown wavy hair, and was wearing a blue top with jeans. The thing, though, that stood out most about her was her eyes
Which was an amazing shade of…
"Excuse me," the girl said as she cocked her head to one side while looking at Kiri. "I just saw you walk out of that clubroom over there. Are you, perhaps, a member?"
Kiri glanced back at the said clubroom, which was the S.P., and answered, "Well, I guess you could say that."
The girl smiled. "Really? I thought there were only three members, all guys."
Kiri yawned. "Huh. Well, if you excuse me, I have to go home now, so…" and she walked away.
The girl (who I'm sure you all have guessed by now that it's Mika) shot a glare at Kiri's retreating form. "What a rude kid."
Mika pulled out her cell phone and dialed a number.
"Tsutomu? It's Mika. I found the S.P. clubroom. It seems that there are more than just three members…"
"What do you mean?"
"Well, I just saw a girl, and she claimed to be a member…well, she didn't exactly claim"
"Hmm...I'll have to look into that. But for now, get Narumi's cell phone number."
"W-what? Get his number?! How am I supposed to do that?!"
"Figure out a way, Mika."
"I'm going to hang up now."
"No, wait! Tsu-"
Then Mika heard the call disconnected tone. She sighed as she pocketed her phone again.
Get that stupid Narumi's phone number…
Meanwhile in the S.P. room…
"Hey Naru-Naru! Want a cookie?" Kei said as he waved a cookie in the air.
Narumi glanced up from the stuff he was organizing. "No thanks."
"Okay, well then, how about some chips?" Kei tried again.
"Oh, well, then maybe you'll like-"
"KEI I'M NOT HUNGRY!!" Narumi yelled.
Kei blinked. "Oh. Well, why didn't you say so?" and he continued to chomp.
Narumi sent him a glare as he finished cleaning. "Well, I'm done, so I guess I'll be heading off to the beauty collage."
Ochiai glanced up from his laptop. "Oh okay. Goodbye, Narumi."
Narumi stood up and grabbed his school bag. "Okay then. See you all-"
Narumi fell to the ground, stunned, as glass rained everywhere. What the heck?! He thought.
When it had all settled, he slowly got up, brushing the glass shards off.
"What the-" Narumi started, then froze.
The large window was smashed.
And on the table lay a large rock.
Someone had thrown a rock through the window…
"The rock landed on my cookies…"Kei said mournfully, looking at what used to be cookies, now just a pile of crumbs.
Narumi ran over. "But you're unhurt? I heard you scream, right after the smash."
"I think so…" Kei said as he brushed all the glass off him. Since he was sitting right next to the window, he was the one who got the most glass.
"You are hurt!" Narumi said, as he saw that Kei had a large cut on his right cheek.
"Oww!!" Kei whimpered. "It hurts!!"
Ochiai inspected the rock. "Hmm? There's a note attached."
Narumi grabbed it. Sure enough, a piece of paper had been tied to the stone. He angrily opened it and read it.
Narumi, take this as yet another warning. We are NOT playing around.
Narumi stared at the note and shook with anger. "That…jerk…LET'S GO CATCH HIM!! AND WHEN I DO I AM GOING TO KILL HIM!!"
And with that Narumi ran out of the room.
"Hang on, Naru-Naru! I'm coming too!" Kei said as he ran after him.
A trail of glass followed him.
Ochiai was left alone in the room. He sighed as he pushed his glasses up on his nose. Hmm…Narumi's such a hothead…did he not even notice how suspicious the note seemed? I hardly doubt that the same people who burned his house down would come all the way to here just to throw a rock through the window with such a trivial note…there must be something more…
Ochiai did his pose as he thought. Then, Aha! That must be it! Ochiai smirked as he left the room.
The door slowly creaked open and Mika slipped in. "Whew! I thought that glasses boy was never going to leave!"
She looked around the room. "I guess they bought the note, even though I wrote it in a hurry and didn't really think it through."
"Now, what I need is…aha! There!' Mika spotted exactly what she was looking for.
A cell phone.
Mika quickly grabbed it. "Yay!" She flipped it open.
"Oh? It's that rude girl from the hall," Mika commented as she saw the wallpaper of Kiri. "Well, that doesn't matter." She quickly went to the phonebook, and scrolled down until she saw "Narumi."
She smiled. "Found it!" Then she copied it into her own cell phone.
She had just saved it when she heard footsteps outside.
Mika looked around frantically. Where to escape to?!
She ran to the now shattered window and jumped out. Then she started running for all she was worth.
The door opened and Ochiai walked in. He smiled as he pushed his glasses up. "Interesting…good data…"
Ha ha! Ochiai never actually left! He just hid outside! So like Ochiai.
In any case, ugh, I don't really like this chapter T.T I think I stressed the color of Mika's eyes too much. But I wanted you guys to know that she was the same person that was outside of Narumi's window in chapter 2…
Gah! I just noticed that none of my borders showed up in the other chapters!! I'm going to have to edit that!!
I don't really know when the next time I'll update will be, seeing as my schedule is pretty busy except on the week ends…so I will as soon as I can!
Edit: Kay, I didnt change anything, but I added the borders that didnt show up before. So the flow of the story should improve a bit...I hope XD
And so ends my author note. And now I shall reply to the anonymous reviewers, seeing as I cannot reply to them via 'review-reply'. So, if you were not an anonymous reviewer, the next section doesnt anything important, so you are free to leave…that is, if you haven't already XD.
Sandra: Thank you and you're welcome. Yeah, idk where you live, but here in the U.S. it doesn't come out until June. Which is not that far away I suppose XD. And yeah, I agree that parts of my story were bland U.U, I'm sorry. Finally, idk if I will bring in Takeda since 1. Chisami hardly shows up in this story 2. I wasn't exactly sure if this story would have romance or not. And if it did it would kinda implied ya know? I'm not good at writing romance, so sorry!!
