Trials of the Heart


Lettuce, Ryou and Keiichiro walked to Cafe Mew Mew. Keiichiro pushed the door open and Lettuce walked in.

"It's so kawaii!" Lettuce smiled.

"Oh, God." Ryou muttered.

Keiichiro walked up to Lettuce.

"This will be your partner in crime and he will help you. He will inform you when danger is near."

Keiichiro held up a little pink fuzz ball. Lettuce smiled as it floated towards her.

"I shall call you Paish." Lettuce smiled.

"Naming it after your boyfriend, are we?" Ryou smirked.

"Honda-kun is not my boyfriend!" Lettuce went red.

Ryou laughed and flicked her nose.

"You need to find the other Mew Mews."

"How will I know if they are... Mew Mews?"

"Each Mew Mew has got a mark on their body. You'll work here aswell."

"Whoa, I didn't think it was a real cafe. I haven't got any mar- Ah! When did that get there?! Make it go away!" Lettuce begged.

"No can do, it comes with the being a superhero."

"Anything else I should know?"

"No."

Lettuce walked out of the cafe and went home.


Lettuce walked to the library with Ichigo and Minto. Pai was up ahead.

"Honda-kun!" Lettuce called.

Pai turned around and grunted. Making sure nobody was around to witness this, Pai walked over. Ichigo and Minto smirked, then walked off.

"How are you?" Pai asked, his arms folded across his lap.

"Fine, thank you."

Lettuce blushed as she accidentally dropped her bag, books fell out all over the place. Lettuce and Pai bent down to pick them up. Their hands touched and Lettuce blushed. Two white ribbons popped out.

"Ah!" Lettuce yelped.

"What's the matter?" Pai asked, turning his head around.

"Nothing!" Lettuce turned his head back.

Lettuce quickly grabbed her books and stuffed them in her bag. Lettuce stood up and covered her head with one of the books.

"Oh, look at the time! I better get going, I'm late!" Lettuce cried.

Lettuce ran off at top speed, leaving Pai stood up.


Lettuce marched into the cafe. Ryou looked up and smiled.

"You didn't say they would pop out!" Lettuce yelled.

"It must have slipped my mind." Ryou smirked. Lettuce tried to keep calm. This couldn't be happening.

"Slipped your mind... I'm sorry but you are truly a jerk!" Lettuce cried.

"Lettuce-san, we need you to go and start looking for new members." Keiichiro said, coming in before it got worse.

"I'm sorry, but I'm going to Ichigo-san's tonight." Lettuce said.

"Well, could you look tomorrow."

"Hai, I better get going... ja ne!"

Lettuce walked out and headed towards Ichigo's place.


Lettuce knocked on the door. Ichigo opened the door and pulled her in. She dragged her upstairs into her room. Minto sat there, a pair of wings sticking out and a blue bird tail. Minto didn't look very happy.

"Look, I'm turning into a brid!" Mint cried.

Lettuce giggled and Minto sent her a death glare.

"It's not funny!" Minto pouted.

"I need to take you somewhere... I promise it'll explain your... um, wings and tail." Lettuce stammered, her face painted in a mild red.

"Ano... Lettuce-chan, I've got cat ears and a tail!" Ichigo shrieked, her hands placed upon her head. Minto quietly snickered to herself and Lettuce sighed.

Lettuce pulled them downstairs.


Lettuce walked into the cafe, pulling Ichigo and Minto behind. They attempted to hide their animal parts, but to no avail. The girls grew red at the sight of two men, and the girls were in nothing but their pajamas.

"Shirogane-san, Akasaka-san, my friends are Mew Mews!" Lettuce shouted.

Ryou and Keiichiro walked up to them. Ichigo looked at Ryou and hearts appeared in her coffee brown eyes. Minto smirked at this.

"Ah, yes, two more Mew Mews." Keiichiro said, a wide grin across his face.

"The iromote wildcat and the blue lorikeet." Ryou said.

Paish floated up to them. Paish opened his mouth and two pendants fell out. Minto and Ichigo caught them with ease.

"Kawaii, what's his name?" Ichigo asked.

"Ask Lettuce." Ryou smirked.

All eyes cornered Lettuce.

Lettuce went red and looked at the floor. "His name is... P-Paish." Lettuce stuttered.

"You named him after Honda-san, that's so sweet!" Ichigo said.

Lettuce smiled and Minto went home. Lettuce and Ichigo ran after her.


Lettuce, Minto and Ichigo sat on the couch watching the television. Lettuce glanced at her watch.

"Ichigo-san, we need to get home, it's late." Lettuce said.

"Yeah, Otosan will have a fit if I don't get back soon!"

Ichigo and Lettuce walked out.

Miki walked out and sat on the steps. An infuser floated up to him and engulfed him completely.

Miki walked back in and Minto looked at him.

"Miki, what's wrong?" Minto asked.

Miki grew into a big white dog that had some red streaks. Minto gasped and screamed.

Paish grew bigger and looked at Ichigo and Lettuce.

"Chimera Animal! Chimera Animal!" Paish screamed.

"Wha-"

"AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!" Minto screamed.

Lettuce and Ichigo ran back into Minto's place. Miki looked at them and dived.

Lettuce grabbed Ichigo and somersaulted into the air. As they were doing this Lettuce had pulled her pendant out and transformed.

"Mew Mew Lettuce, Metamorpho-sis!" Lettuce yelled.

Lettuce was her Mew form and Ichigo and Minto did the same.

"Mew Mew Minto-!"

"Mew Mew Strawberry-!"

"Metamorpho-sis!"

Minto's Mew form was a short, tight, light blue dress. Mint's hair turned blue and she had gloves that reached her wrists with a white trim. Mint had light blue ankle boots on, also with a white trim. Minto's wings and tail popped out.

Ichigo was wearing a pink dress. Ichigo's hair turned a sugary pink and her ears and tail popped out. Ichigo had scarlet gloves on, with a ribbon one leg. Ichigo had scarlet, knee-high boots.

"Whoa...." Ichigo and Minto whispered in unison.

"Look out!" Lettuce yelled.

Miki dived at Minto.

Minto jumped into the air.

"Minto Arrow!" Minto summoned.

A arrow appered in Minto's hands and Minto aimed at Miki with precise accuracy.

"Ribbon Minto ECHO!" Minto cried.

An arrow hit Miki. Miki backed up and Ichigo looked at Lettuce.

"Now, Lettuce!" Ichigo called.

"Lettuce Castanets!"

Lettuce looked at Miki.

"Ribbon Lettue FLASH!"

Lettuce's attack made the infuser come out of Miki. Paish ate the infuser. Paish tweeted happily.

"Miki!" Minto called.

Miki jumped into Minto's arms.

Ichigo and Lettuce smiled.

"Hey, why aren't I back to normal?!" Minto cried.

Lettuce giggled.

"It's not funny!"


Extras

Take 1

"How will I know if they are... Mew Mews?"

"Each Mew has got a mark on their body. You'll work here aswell"

"Whoa, I didn't think it was a real cafe. I haven't got any mar- Ah! When did that get there?! Make it go away!" Lettuce begged.

"Wait a minute..."

"YOU PERVERT, PUTTING THAT MARK THERE!" Lettuce yelled, pointing at her chest vigorously.

"I didn't! Your Honda-san put it there." Ryou smirked, thinking Lettuce would begin to yell at Pai once she found him.

Hearts appeared in Lettuce's sapphire eyes.

"Honda-kun..." Lettuce murmured, "Where is he?"

"Zuka said he's just gone to get a drink." Koki said.

Lettuce skips off to find Pai, then...

"Chris! Put Lettuce down!" Pai yelled.

"Ahhh, you're no fun." Chris moaned.

"Honda-kun..."

"Lettuce..."

"Honda-kun..."

"Oh, Lett-

"Chris! Bring Honda-kun back!" Lettuce screamed.

Lettuce blushed as she accidentally dropped her bag, books fell out all over the place. Lettuce and Pai bent down to pick them up. Their hands touched and Lettuce blushed. Two white ribbons popped out.

"Ah!" Lettuce yelped.

"What's the matter?" Pai asked, turning his head around.

Pai smirked.

"You really need to control yourself better.

Pai reached up and gently stroked Lettuce's white ribbons. Lettuce blushed darker.
