Tohru Honda POV

I was walking to Shigures house which is my home from school, I usually walked with Kyo and Yuki, but they were both busy. I've lived with Shigure, Kyo and Yuki for twenty-four months now, you see my mother died two years ago in April and I lived in a tent near the Sohma house. After a landslide Shigure Sohma let me stay as long as I cleaned and cooked. The Sohma family is cursed by the zodiac, so when ever a person of the opposite sex hugs them they turn into their animal. Now while I was walking to the house, I saw a girl with shoulder length light brown hair. I walked up to her and tapped her on the shoulder. I saw she had two large suitcases in each hand.

"Excuse me?" I asked. She turned and smiled.

"Hello, do you happen to live here?" She pointed up to Shigures house.

"Oh yes. And you are? I'm sorry it's just I've never seen you around here before."

"It's not a problem, my name is Anya Sohma."

"Oh my goodness, are you apart of the zodiac too?" I asked as we started to walk up the path.

"Nope, I'm a cousin of Hatsuharu. I'm here from London for about a year. My parents-" She paused for a moment, "They're on a trip so they sent me here. I went to the main house and asked permission from Akito if I could stay, he got really mad but didn't strike me. So when I left I thought I could come here instead. I've heard a lot about you, you're name is Tohru isn't it? I'm sorry but you never did give me your name." She smiled at me when we reached the house.

"Oh no I didn't I'm sorry, yes I'm Tohru." We walked in and she placed her suitcases near the door.

"Shigure I'm home!" I called out. I heard him coming down the stairs.

"Welcome home To-" He stopped in the doorway and looked at Anya, "Anya?" She nodded and smiled. He rushed over and hugged her, he didn't transform.

"Shigure! It's so good to see you old friend!" Anya exclaimed. He placed her down next to me and smiled.

"Tohru I'm so sorry I forgot to tell you this morning we're having a guest here for about a year."

"N-no it's okay. She already told me she's staying here." I said quickly. Anya hugged me from the side.

"Shigure you shouldn't let this girl do all the cleaning and cooking you know. You should help too." Anya said in a strict voice.

"Well she offered-" Anya cut him off by staring at him.

"Well I'll tell you what, I'll do the cleaning and I can help Tohru with the cooking. Kay?" She smiled very sweetly.

"Oh no Anya I can do it. I've been doing it for two years now. I'm used to it." She looked at me, I finally saw her eyes, and they were green, blue and gold.

"Tohru, I want to help. Besides I'm staying here for a year." She shrugged. I heard the door behind us.

"Sorry we're home late Shigure." It was Kyo and Yuki. Anya let go of me and turned around, she was still smiling.

"Well it's not a problem." Shigure said.
