I. Sayu

"Fourteen years old and my parents can't trust me to stay home alone while they're out shopping," I muttered to myself, trekking to the bathroom on the upstairs floor. "How lame is that?" Sighing, I tossed my head back and opened the bathroom door, closing it and locking it behind me in case Light wandered in while I was… busy.

Everything was totally fine and normal until I unbuttoned my pants and pulled them down.

"AAAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIEEEEEE!" I shrieked, jumping out of my pants-underwear combination and wrapping the nearest towel around my lower half. "LIIIIIIIIIIGHT! Light, Light, Light!" I ran to him, tears falling from my eyes as I kept them wide open and stared at my brother in horror.

Worried, he clasped his hands on my shoulders and leaned in close to inspect my face. "Sayu, what? What is it?" he asked, cocking his head to the side and staring back at me. "Are you okay?" I shook my head. "Did you break something?" Another head shake. "Are you bleeding?"

Nodding frantically, I replied quietly, "Y-Yeah, I'm bleeding… Light… I don't know what to do…"

He grabbed my arm and looked at it up and down before letting it go and grabbing my other arm. "Well, where are you bleeding?" Shakily, I pointed down at the towel and sniffled, wiping at my running nose and leaving a trail of snot on the back of my hand. "Oh. Well… shit." Looking past me, his eyes widened more and he uttered a string of curses under his breath. "…and you're tracking it on the carpet. Double shit."

"L-Light, what… what's wrong with me?" I squeaked, holding my towel tighter and feeling my knees starting to give way.

Steadying his breathing, he whipped out his cell phone and dialed Mom's number, holding the phone to his ear and turning to face me. "Sayu," he started, biting his bottom lip, "I think you may have just started your period."
