"Girls! Get her!" a sweet, innocent-looking girl shouted towards her underlings. We all know her as the kind-hearted Sakoshita Yanagi but... in this world? Think again!

If we look around, take in the surroundings, we are seeing right before us the beloved High School of the Hokage Gang. Turning to the right, straight ahead is a girl with purple locks, a girlish figure matched with a fiery personality is running away from the vengeful, crazy fan girls of her BFF for life---

"Toki-chan!! Save me!!"

'Now where is 'she' when you need 'her'! 'Her' fan girls are going to roast me alive!' she thought in panic.

"You can run but you can't hide from the wrath of the We Love Mikagami Tokiya Fan Club, Kirisawa Fuuko!" their evil leader was grinning maniacally as she came closer as ever...

'To think she can fool almost half of the male population of this school, to believe she's as sweet as pie and can't hurt even a fly... If only they could see their Yanagi-hime now...' she thought as a shiver run down her spine. Her pursuers were TOO close now, she knows she cannot escape anymore. She shut her eyes in surrender, accepting her doomed fate. But then...

"Fuu-chan!!" A sort of high pitched male voice shouted towards her direction, just as the hungry wolves completely surrounded her.

In unison, all their heads span in awe at their Prince Charming wearing--- make up?!!

Completely oblivious of what's originally happening, Toki-chan--- Mikagami Tokiya approached the group of girls, totally obliterating the frightening atmosphere shrouding about just a few minutes ago.

"What are you girls doing? Have you all finished eating your bentous? You shouldn't skip meals, they're very important and staying healthy will add more to your beauty!"

"Oh, Mikagami-sama!"

"He's so cool!"

"My Prince!"

"Girls! Control yourselves!" the voice of their leader spoke with conviction. Then, with a smooth 'swoosh' sound, she span around facing her 'soulmate' with her winning smile.

"Tokiya-senpai, we were just asking Kirisawa-san a few questions... Right, girls?"

"Yeah... Yes!" her underlings said, still looking dreamily at the silver-haired bishounen? (Or bishoujo? *laugh*)

"Well, okay... I hope you don't mind if I borrow her for a while."

"We won't. She's all yours." Yanagi said still feigning innocence with a fake warm smile.

The two--Fuuko and Tokiya walked away hand in hand. The girls left aside silently boiled inside, throwing 'daggers' behind the purple-headed tomboy!

A safe distance away from the fan girls, in their secret spot... Fuuko sat down on the grass, leaning her back into the Sakura tree behind the school, her legs stretched, a tired sigh escaping her pouting lips.

"You were 'this' late, Toki-chan!" indicating the danger she was in using her fingers.

"Don't tell me you flirted with another guy somewhere that you forgot about me?" she added, feeling unimportant. She crossed her arms and refused to face him.

"Oh c'mon, Fuu-chan! I'm sorry. You know that's not true!"

"Which one? That you didn't flirt?" she asked, finally facing him.

"Well... Hanabishi Recca's fan club cornered me at the cafeteria... And you know, what I mean! You're the most important person in my life, aside from my family."

"Oh God! I'm sorry! I didn't know you encountered that sea monkey... Did they do anything to you? You should have called me!"

"You were busy with your own problems--- my fan girls, how could I call you? I'm just glad I wasn't too late..."

"Aww! That's so sweet of you! Come here." she motioned for him to come closer and when he did, tackled him into the ground... both of them laughing at their silliness!

--------

Fuuko woke up, sweating, wearing a confused expression on her face.

'What the hell was that dream about?' were her shocked thoughts.

"Weird dream." she muttered under her breath, sighed and got up to prepare for school...

'Wait a minute... This isn't my room!' she looked around once again and realized she was still in Mii-chan's room. She parted the curtains and was surprised to see how dark it was already outside.

'Why the hell didn't he wake me up?!' she stomped her way outside, furious... Scanning the living room for her target, her expression softened upon seeing his big form all scrunched up in the sofa, in deep slumber...

She walked towards him, he was snoring lightly, his face appeared more innocent, kinder in his sleep... The lines on his forehead were not present and a small, cute smile was even painted on his lips. Fuuko pinched his nose to see if he would wake up... She almost laughed aloud when he grunted in his sleep just like he would if he was actually awake and if she were to do the same thing.

Fuuko was having her own fun watching him 'almost' vulnerable like this. But her happiness was short-lived, her smile soon replaced by a blush and a 'this-is-not-what-you-think-it-is' expression, as her eyes were now staring at his OPEN, deep pools.

"What are you doing, Kirisawa?" he asked raising his brow.

"I was just trying to think of ways how to torture you in your sleep!" she answered in haste, hoping he'd buy it.

"Whatever. We're really late. And it's your fault."

"My fault? Why didn't you wake me up?!"

"I was knocking loudly at 'my' bedroom door but it seemed you didn't hear me."

"I fell asleep..." she said in a low whisper.

"That's okay. Let's just hurry. After what the 'rumors' said yesterday, I'm sure Yanagi-san and those two are going to be 'extra' suspicious."

"Hopefully, they won't tease us or anything..."

After fixing themselves and getting the fruit basket in the kitchen, they headed towards the door, locked it and left for Domon's residence. Unbeknownst to both, a pair of eyes were watching, hiding in the darkness...
