I know, I'm sorry I said I was going to update a lot sooner, and more frequent with it being summer, but it's hard to do so when you don't have a computer as you get dragged here there and everywhere with your family.

I'm sorry, please forgive me... not only that but I now know where I want to take this story... but it's the getting there that's the hard bit. For now chapter will only be short due to the stupidly small amount of time I actually will have with a computer.

It's not that I don't love all you lot; it's that my family don't. =[

"Excuse me Sir, would you fill in these forms please. It's just so that when she's discharged you can just go whenever you want."

"Sure, can I just ask, why am I the next of kin instead of her parents?" This question had been going round my mind ever since I'd been told supposedly it was me.

"That I honestly don't know. Her next of kin was changed about 6 months ago to you, we don't have record of why a person is a next of kin, and we only have records for who is the next of kin. The only help I can offer you is the advice of asking her when she comes to."

"Okay, thank you." Unhappy with the answer she'd just given me I took the blasted papers and filled in all the appropriate rubbish, signed all the boxes, crossed every 'T' and dotted every 'I'. Happy that her job had been fulfilled the nurse scurried away to gossip with the other nurse's at their station.

I was just about to settle into my chair and get some sleep when the door was banged open with such a vigorous force, if I didn't know how strong she could be in a temper I'd be looking for a tall, muscular male rather than a petit, blond girl.

"What are YOU doing here?"

"So I guess I can't be worried about one of my students."

"You weren't worried about 'your student' when you went swanning off God knows where, did you!"

"Rima, be fair." If it wasn't for Nagi's intervention I doubt it wouldn't have been long before I would have needed a hospital bed, judging by the fire and hatred in the younger girl's eyes. I wasn't going to stick around either to wait for a verbal of physical attack to come my way either.

"I've done what I needed to, I'm off."

"That's it, leave her again!"

"Rima, please, you'll wake Amu up."

"No Nagi! I won't be silence he should know what he did to her! When her parents were killed she needed him most. You know how she'd cry every night hoping none of us would hear, calling out his name begging for him to come. But did you? NO, you just left her! Too busy with your own life to care about the girl you 'loved' what bullshit that turned out to be!"

"What do you mean 'when her parents were killed'?"

"Of that's it pretend you don't know."

"What do you mean 'when her parents were killed'!"

"Someone broke into their house at night, Amu's night tried to stop them taking stuff but they just killed him and Amu's mother; if Amu wasn't at Utau's I dread to think what could have happened. You should know all this though. We sent you a letter."

"Do you honestly think if I had received a letter saying that I wouldn't have come straight back! What kind of monster do you think I am! I loved her, scratch that I still love her! If i had known I would've been here."

"If you love her like you say you do, why are you leaving her again, now?"

"Because I'm no longer allowed to love her." And with that I left them.

I needed a drink.

No, I needed several.
