Hey hey. I'm back and this time I am writing a story based loosely on the song "From A PLace You're Not There." Sung by the Kagamine twins. I have changed the storyline slightly. Note that in this story Rin and Len are not related. They are mirror images of each other (some might argue that this is how they were intended to be in the first place). They are not brother and sister.

Disclaimer: I do not own the Vocaloid programme (sadly), Rin, Len, the song, nor do I own the translations.

Chapter One

~Len~

The deep green forest was silent and peaceful compared to the hustle and bustle of the city Len was used to. He sighed happily at the way the leaves danced in the breeze. "What a beautiful place," he commented to himself. The boy rested for awhile on a log, feeling the coolness of the shade caress his body. He closed his weary eyes and lost himself in the slight rustle of trees and calls of birds.

Len Kagamine lived in a small city, that sat on the outskirts of an old and ancient forest. He was the son of a successful buisness man and lived in a large house. Even though he had lots of money and toys, he didn't have many friends. So most of the time he played by himself. He liked to escape from his busy life and walk in the peaceful forest alone, often after school or in the weekends. He never told anyone where he was going, because they would tell him off for wandering in the woods alone.

"It's a dark and anceint place... They say there are witches in there and other dark creatures of evil," his nanny had told him once. "Don't go wandering in there alone, you might be caught and cursed."

Remembering the warning, Len opened his eyes once again and peered through the trees, expecting to see witches or devils watching him with cursed eyes. But of course there weren't any. "Sarah is wrong. This place isn't evil," he told himself. "I've been here almost everyday for three years and haven't been bewitched or cursed once." He laughed and stood back up. He had never walked this way before and the plants along the path were abnormal. He had never seen a bright orange prickly bush before. He noticed that it beared fruit of some kind, but he knew all to well not to eat anything unidentified.

A bird's loud piping call echoed through the tall trees, making him glance upward to try and see what type it was. He saw it breifly through the branches, fliting from tree to tree. It was black but shined with a green glossamer. He watched it for several minutes before it flew away. Saddened that the bird was no longer with him, he hummed his own tune and continued down the path.

It was overgrown and there were tree roots sticking up out of the ground here and there. He had to make sure he wasn't going to trip over. He stopped when he reached a place he knew he had never seen before. Through some ferns he thought he saw a glimmer of something shiny. Curious, he climbed through the shrubbery and halted in a small clearing surrounded by dense bush. Right in the middle of the clearing stood an old looking green mirror. It reflected the scenary behind Len, but he couldn't see his own relection.

Amazed, he crept closer. He stood before the mirror. It was just taller than him, and stayed up on its own stand. There were flowers, birds and plants carved in the frame. He ran his fingers over the wood, still staring amazed at the mirror itself. Even though he was standing right in front of it, he could not see his reflection. All that was reflected in the glass were the trees behind him.

"This is got to be magical!" he cried out in awe and wonder. He sat and just gazed upon this wonderful item he had found. "Maybe I could take it home to show Sarah and Father," he pondered, trying to lift it. It wouldn't budge no matter how he tried to lift it. He bent down and tried to figure out if it had been nailed into the ground but it didn't seem to be. "I suppose a magical item like this would be unmovable," he realised, panting from the exertion. He glanced back up at it and started. He saw someone staring back at him.

He cried out in shock and staggered back. The person did the same. He blinked hard several time, gasping in shock. So did the other person. He slowly came closer and touched the cool surface, the person copying him. He gazed upon the new comer.

He knew it wasn't his reflection. The other person had blonde hair like him, blue eyes like him and even looked around the same age... Except this person was wearing a dress. She was a girl. 'A female relfection?' he thought in disbelief. The girl looked just as confused as him. He walked around the mirror, just to check it wasn't a trick. But behind the mirror was just the wooden back. He walked back around to see the girl still sitting there. It was as if she was waiting for him to come back. She smiled at him and opened her mouth, her lips moving as if talking. He couldn't hear her and suddenly longed he could. He shook his head and she frowned. She leant on the mirror and put her hand against it. Len put his hand on hers and suddenly wished she was there with him.

'Maybe if I shout, she could hear me?' he thought. "Who are you? What are you doing there?" he yelled. She frowned further and shook her head. 'She can't hear me...'

He had a brain wave and thought he could write on the mirror. He breathed on the glass to create mist, but it wouldn't stay there for long enough. He felt like crying now. How could he get in contact with her. He looked around for some sort of clue or sign. That's when he saw the words "Kagami" and "Uta" carved into the top of the frame. He knew they were Japanese words, because his mother had been Japanese and made sure he learnt the language from an early age. "Mirror... Song?"

Those words confused him. He watched the girl and felt his want to be with her grow stronger. 'Perhaps if I sing to her she'd be able to hear me...' he thought.

He thought quickly and opened his mouth with a tune already formed in his mind. And so he begun to sing;

"In a quiet, quiet place deep inside the forest,
We were little...
In the faintly glimmering old mirror..."

He stopped and saw that her lips had been moving too. Had she been singing too? Could she hear him? He wanted to stay with her forever and wait for the day he could hear her voice. But the sun was begining to set and he knew he had to go home. But he couldn't move... Not just yet.


~Rin~

The deep green forest was still and quiet compared to the hustle and bustle of the village Rin was used to. She sighed happily at the way the leaves danced in the breeze. "what a beautiful place," she commented to herself. The girl rested for awhile on a log, feeling the coolness of the shade carress her body. She closed her weary eyes and lost herself in the slight rustle of leaves and songs of birds.

Rin Kagamine lived in a small village, that sat on the outskirts of an old and ancient forest. She was the daughter of a successful farmer and lived in the biggest house. Even though she was very nice and pretty, she didn't have many friends. So most of the time she played by herself. She liked to escape from her boring life and walk in the peaceful forest alone, often after her lessons or in the weekends. She never told anyone where she was going, because they would tell her off for walking in the woods alone.

"It's a dark and anceint place... They say there are witches in there and other dark creatures of evil," her mother had told her once. "Don't go wandering in there alone, you might be caught and cursed, or eaten by the wolves."

Remembering the warning, Rin opened her eyes once again and peered through the trees, expecting to see witches or devils watching her with cursed eyes. But of course there weren't any. "Mother is wrong. This place isn't evil," she told herself. "I've been here almost everyday for three years and haven't been bewitched or cursed once. Nor have I seen any wolves" She laughed and stood back up. She had never walked this way before and the plants along the path were abnormal. She had never seen a bright orange prickly bush before. She noticed that it beared fruit of some kind, but she knew all to well not to eat anything unidentified.

A bird's loud piping call echoed through the tall trees, making her glance upward to try and see what type it was. She saw it breifly through the branches, fliting from tree to tree. It was black but shined with a green glossamer. She watched it for several minutes before it flew away. Saddened that the bird was no longer with him, she hummed her own tune and continued down the path.

It was overgrown and there were tree roots sticking up out of the ground here and there. She had to make sure she wasn't going to trip over. She stopped when she reached a place she knew she had never seen before. Through some ferns she thought she saw a glimmer of something shiny. Curious, she climbed through the shrubbery and halted in a small clearing surrounded by dense bush. Right in the middle of the clearing stood an old looking green mirror. It reflected the scenary behind Rin, but she couldn't see her own relection.

She ran her fingers over the wood, still staring amazed at the mirror itself. Even though she was standing right in front of it, she could not see her reflection. All that was reflected in the glass were the trees behind her.

"This is got to be magical!" she cried out in awe and wonder. She sat and just gazed upon this wonderful item she had found. She bent down to see if she could figure out how it worked. When she glanced back up at it she started. She saw someone staring back at her.

She cried out in shock and staggered back. The person did the same. She blinked hard several times, gasping in shock. So did the other person. She slowly came closer and touched the cool surface, the person copying her. She gazed upon the new comer.

She knew it wasn't her reflection. The other person had blonde hair like her, blue eyes like her and even looked around the same age... Except this person was a boy. 'A male relfection?' she thought in disbelief. The boy looked just as confused as her. He then walked out of the frame of the mirror, and out of sight. Rin waited for the boy to reappear, wondering what he was doing in the mirror. He walked back into sight, and peered at her. It was as if he was wondering why she was waiting for him to come back.

She smiled at him, then had a thought. "Hi, what's your name?" she asked him. He didn't seem to be able to hear her. He shook his head and she frowned. She leant on the mirror and put her hand against it. The boy copied her and put his hand on hers. Rin suddenly wished he was there with her.

The boy's lips moved and it seemed he was shouting something. She frowned further and shook her head. 'I wonder why we can't hear each other...'

For some reason, the boy began to breathe on the glass. 'He must be trying to create mist,' she thought, seeing a little form, but it disappeared quickly. He looked like he was about to cry now. She wanted to be able to comfort him, but didn't know how she could.

She noticed him looking at something above the mirror and she glanced up as well. She saw the words "Kagami" and "Uta" carved into the top of the frame. She knew they were Japanese words, because she spoke the language as her mother-tongue. 'Mirror... Song?' she pondered those words for awhile.

She watched the boy think hard about those words as well and felt her want to be with him grow stronger. 'Perhaps if I sing to him he'd be able to hear me...' she thought.

She thought quickly and opened her mouth with a tune already formed in her mind. And so she begun to sing;

"Shizukana shizukana mori no okute,
Kasuka ni kirameku kobita kagami ni...
Chiisaku chiisaku sureta bokura wa..."

She stopped and saw that his lips had been moving too. Had he been singing too? Could he hear her? She wanted to stay with him forever and wait for the day she could hear his voice. But the sun was begining to set and she knew she had to go home. But she couldn't go... Not until he left.


I hope you like it so far, there will always be two parts; Len's and then Rin's. Rin's will only be slightly different to Len's because I'm lazy LOL. Please R&R and enjoy!
