Yuki- Hey Yuki here! okay, this is just something I thought of while I was eating curry. Feel free to judge and crap lol. So anyway, Ikuto and Amu are too busy to join me cuz they're with my other three stories as well. So it's just me to save pages. I was thinking about waiting til my stories were finished, but knowing me, and my short attention span, I would forget about this. I hope people like it, and review! Oh and by the way, this whole story is in Ikuto's point of view.
I snapped my eyes opened to someone coming in my room.
"Ikuto it's me." I heard my sister Utau said. I sat up in my bed.
"What do you want Utau? It's 2 a.m..." I said putting my hand to my forehead. Utau walked closer, and sat on the bed.
"Mom and dad are downstairs talking to a girl...someone I've never seen before." she said quietly. My eyes widened.
"A girl?" I asked quietly. I climbed out of my bed, and slipped on my slippers. Utau grabbed the hem of my shirt to pull me back.
"What is it?" I whispered so my parents wouldn't hear me. Utau gave a worried expression.
"I don't think it's a good idea to go down there..." she said. I raised an eyebrow.
"I'll be fine." I reasured as I put my hand on her head. Utau let go of my shirt, and sat on my bed. I sighed as I walked out of my room quietly. I made sure my feet didn't make any sound as I came across a light. The downstairs light was still on, and I saw a glimpse of my father.
"Are you okay with this dear?" he asked. I leaned over even more and saw my mother. She smiled and nodded her head.
"I am perfectly fine with it." she said. Fine with what? Why are they even down here this late?
"Ikuto, come here." I heard my father say. Damn...he caught me. I walked down the stairs slowly and saw my parents. But that's not all I saw. I saw a girl with pink hair, looking down at her lap. Her eyes were expressionless. Who is she? And what is she doing here? I asked myself.
"Ikuto, before I start, get your sister. I know she's awake too." me father said. How does he know this stuff?! I walked up the stairs into my dark room to see Utau still sitting on my bed.
"Dad wants both of us." I said to her. She walked up quickly to me, and grabbed the hem of my shirt again.
"Come on Utau, we're not young anymore. Let go." I said sternly. She looked at me and let go. I sighed, and we both walked down the stairs together to greet my parents and that...girl.
"Ikuto, Utau, sit down here please." my mother said quietly patting on the couch beside her. We nodded, and Utau sat down next to my mother. I sat next to Utau. I was right in front of that girl. Her eyes were still expressionless, and had an I-don't-care-about-the-world expression. I examined her, but I still didn't get a good look at her face because she was looking down.
"Ikuto, Utau, this is Hinamori Amu." my father said waving his hand towards her. Utau gave her a curious expression. I continued to examine her. Why is she here?
"Why is she here?" Utau asked stubbornly and sternly. Well she asked my question, but not in the tone I wanted. My parents gave each other worried expressions, and then at the girl whose name was Amu.
"Utau, why don't you take Amu upstairs, and set up the pull-out-bed in Ikutos room?" my mother asked. Utau grimaced.
"Why?" she asked. My father gave her a stern look, telling her to do it or else. Utau sighed and looked at Amu then at our parents.
"Where's her stuff?" Utau asked.
"She didn't bring any." my mother answered. Utau sighed and looked back at Amu and held out her hand.
"Come on, I think I have some stuff for you to borrow." she said waiting for Amu to take her hand. Amu looked at it, but then looked back down. All she did was stand up, and walk towards the stairs right past Utau. Utau gave her a worried expression, and followed. Once they were out of sight my father began to speak.
"Amu will be staying with us for a little while." my mother announced. I raised an eyebrow.
"Why? What's going on?" I asked as I sat across from my parents. My father cleared his throat.
"Her parents will be...gone for a while." he said. That didn't pass with me.
"Specifics please." I said. Then my mother continued.
"Well her parents...abused her. Verbally, physically, mentally, emotionally, and..." she trailed off.
"And...?" I said waving my hands for her to continued.
"Sexually." my father answered. My eyes widened.
"Sexually?" I asked in shock. My parents nodded.
"Now she's still a virgin, but she's been touched." my mother tried to ease the tension. I relaxed a little.
"But we need your help until she leaves." my father said. I raised an eyebrow.
"What do you want me to do?" I asked.
"She won't speak. It's like she blocked out her own voice." my mother explained.
"What does that have to do with me?" I asked pointing at myself.
"We need you to get her to open up. She used to be so cheerful and full of life. But now..." my father trailed off.
"You know her?" I asked. My father nodded.
"She was our neighbor. But I haven't seen her outside of the house in two years." he explained.
"But why can't Utau talk to her?" I asked. My father looked at my mother then at me.
"Because, Amu needs to learn to feel safe around the opposite sex. It was her dad that did most of the abusing." my mother explained. I flinched.
"Alright fine. But does she really need to stay in my room?" I asked. "Why can't she stay in Utaus room?" My parents gave me a stern look again.
"What part of, 'feel safe around the opposite sex' did you not understand?" my mother asked with a raised eyebrow. I sighed.
"Alright fine. But I'll start trying to talk to her tomorrow. It's almost 3 a.m." I said as I waved lazily to them and slung myself upstairs to my room.
"Remember Ikuto, it's just temporarily." I heard my mother call before I reached my door to my room. When I went inside, the pull out bed was set up on the other side of the room, but Amu was in no sight. I walked to Utaus room and knocked lightly on the door.
"Utau, is Amu in there?" I asked.
"Just a minute." she said inside her room. I heard shifts and a thump then she finally opened the door.
"What is it Ikuto?" she asked. I sighed.
"Is Amu in there?" I asked boredly. Utau looked down with a sad expression.
"Once she got upstairs, she went straight to the bathroom. I gave her some clothes to change with, but she hasn't come out." she said before closing her door. I looked at the bathroom and knocked lightly on the door.
"Amu, you in there?" I asked. I didn't hear a response. I sighed once again. It was silent for what seemed like hours and I was starting to get more and more tired. Good thing there was no school tomorrow. I had half a mind to just go to bed, but I can't just leave her there with a healthy conscious.
"Amu, I'm coming in." I said before turning to knob, and opening the door. Once the door was open completely, Amu was changed into what seemed like Utaus clothes, and she was sitting on the toilet. She was wearing a black tank top, with black shorts.
"Amu we have to go to be-" I stopped once I saw her arms. They were covered in bruises, and cuts. My eyes widened in shock at the sight. I didn't want to say anything, so I just grabbed her hand.
"Come on, it's time for bed." I said pulling her towards my room and closing the door. She looked at me with a bored expression. I walked over to my bed, and sat down. Once I looked at her again, she was just standing there in the middle of the room.
"Your bed is over there." I said pointing to the twin sized bed across the room. She shrugged and walked over to her new bed, and sat down. She put her hand on her lap, still with the same expressionless.
"It's cool if I turn off the light right?" I asked. No response. So I just got my self comfortably in my bed, and reached over to turn off the light. I layed in me bed, ready for sleep to take over. Which it did.
I snapped my eyes open for the second time tonight. I heard gasps and whimpers. Is that coming from Amu? I turned on the light on the side table, and looked over at Amu. She was sitting up in the bed, with her hand on her chest, panting heavily. I got out of bed, and walked quickly over to her.
"Are you alright?" I asked with my hand on her back. Still no response. I walked out of my room, and down the stairs quietly. Once I reached the kitchen, I went to the fridge and got the water out. I grabbed a glass out of the cabinet, and poured the water in the cup. I put the water away, and walked quickly back up the stairs. Once I reached my room, I looked at Amu. She was in the same position as before, except she wasn't panting as heavily. I held out the water to her.
"Here, drink this." I said. She looked at the water blankly, and slowly, and I mean really slowly held her hand out to grab the water. I examined her as she held the cup up to her lips, and drink slowly. She noticed I was watching her and she stopped drinking, and looked at me.
"Sorry." I said before turning towards my bed, and sitting down. Once she was finished with her water, and put the glass on her side table and layed back down with her front towards the wall, and her back towards me. I sighed as I turned the light off and layed down. She is gonna be tough to break....
I woke up this morning feeling really tired. I didn't get enough sleep last night causer of her... I turned my head towards her bed, and saw that she wasn't there. I climbed out of bed, and walked down the stairs. I saw my parents and Utau eating breakfast, but I saw no sign of Amu.
"Where's Amu?" I asked, making them all turn their heads toward me. Utau gave a worried expression.
"She just got up and left." she said pointing to the door. I grimaced.
"Do you know where she went?" I asked trying to keep my cool. They all shrugged.
"We have no idea." they all said in unison. I pinched the bridge of my nose. Then I walked up stairs to get dressed quickly to find her. Once I was dress, I walked straight out the door.
"Ikuto wgere are you going?" I heard Utau call.
"What do you think?" I asked as I shut the door.
I have been searching for what seemed like forever searching for her. But she was no where to be found. I was actaully starting to get worried.
"Where'd she go...." I grimaced to myself. The last place I looked was at the park near the fountain. It was only other place I could think of. Once I reached a distance near the fountain, I found Amu sitting on the bench. But she wasn't alone. I sighed at the sight once I walked closer.
"Kukai, what do you think you're doing?" I asked boredly. He looked at me and smiled.
"I think I finally found a mute!" he said excitedly. I looked at Amu who was giving her same expressionless look at Kukai.
"She's not a mute. She's my roommate." I explained. Kukai smirked.
"So, you and her huh?" he asked. I sighed.
"No It's not like that." I said as I grabbed her hand.
"You can't just walk off like that." I said sternly at her. Still no response...not that I was expecting it. I waved goodbye to Kukai, and basically pulled Amu back to the house. Man, I can't even let her out of my sight for a minute...
Once we reached the house, Amu walked straight upstairs. My parents and Utau looked at me.
"What?" I asked. They all just shrugged and returned to the show they were watching. I sighed and walked upstairs myself. Once I reached my room, Amu was sitting on my bed, leaning back, looking at the ceiling. I took my shoes off, and sat on her bed. It was silent and on my side, it was awkward. She just sits there, completely silent.
"So, how old are you?" I asked. I was a little curious. She looked around my age range, so i had to ask. She just looked down, still silent. I sighed. I hear someone knock on my door.
"Ikuto, Amu, mom and dad want you guys." Utau said. Me and Amu looked at each other. She shrugged and got up, I did the same. We walked downstairs to greet my parents. They had a serious expression.
"What's going on?" I asked. My mother looked at Amu, then at me.
"Amus parents are coming to talk to us."
Yuki- Well that's what I got so far! It's ok if you don't like it, it was just an idea :P but anyways, I was wondering if I should continue on this, when i finish 'Blind Sighted' or my other two stories, ot just try to mange all four *shrugs* but yeah that was in my head when I was eating curry, and performing Chanoyu (traditional Japanese tea ceremony) ugh I hate doing those....curse me and my Japanese-ness!
