Mio loved rules, loved to let them shape her life.

Rules helped create order and eventually routine. Routine was good. It ensured that nothing unexpected would happen to her, and the bassist hated surprises.

Ritsu's name meant 'law', but that was a contradiction in itself. Ritsu would never understand the concept of boundaries.

So it is strange that one of the biggest influences that shaped Mio's life was a law without rules.

It is even stranger that in music their roles would reverse.

The steady rhythm assured that no straying melody would fall out of measure as Mio's passion erupted.

AN: Wanted to try something short. Ritsu's name means 'law' or 'rule'. If anyone has already played on this pun, sorry.

Back to writing WUFP now :)
