Satsuki sighed and slumped at her desk as the teacher droned on about English. Who cared if they learned a foreign language or not! It's not like any of them were going to America or France or Denmark or something! Sometimes I just wish that the teacher would have an accident so he'd go to the hospital and we'd get a fun teacher for a change. Not that I'd want him to die or anything, just enough of an injury that he'll never be able to teach again. She sighed again and let her head come to rest on the desk. Because of the angle she had when she did that, she saw Amanojaku at the window. He softly tapped his paw against the glass and stared at her.

Satsuki raised an eyebrow at him and he hit his face with the pad of his paw. He breathed heavily on the glass and wrote something in the haze it made on the window. What the-? Wait! That's S.O.S., backwards! "Mr. Sakata, may I use the restroom?" The teacher nodded and she rushed out of the room and shut the door behind her. She rounded the corner and opened a window where Amanojaku then jumped in. "Why are you bugging me during school? What's the emergency?"

"Haven't you guessed already? A ghost has surfaced, I can sense it." Satsuki started at the news. There hadn't been any ghosts in weeks!

"How dangerous is it? Is it something that has to be taken care of right away or can it wait until after school?" The demon in her cat's body sighed and shook his head.

"I don't know yet. It's very powerful, that I can tell, a lot of potential to cause trouble too. There's just something different about it. I can't quite put my paw on it, but this isn't any ghost that I've met before." Satsuki was surprised, she thought that Amanojaku knew all the ghosts in town.

"Well, how is it different? Is it a demon or just a powerful dead human?" It seemed like a logical question to ask, quite a few of the ghosts they had met were just humans who had died. Evil spirits just took over their being, that's what Satsuki and her friends took care of, because some of them were really nice on the inside.

"That's the strange thing. It's not a demon, but not a human either. I don't know what it is." Satsuki frowned and began to ask another question, but she heard someone coming down the hall towards them. "It's okay to leave this until you're done with school, I've gotta fly. Talk to ya' later." Before Satsuki could say anything else, he had already jumped out the window and scurried away on the branch of a nearby tree. She closed the window and started walking. When she got back to class, she sat down and got back into her bored stupor. She saw a flash of black whizz by the window. Probably on his way to tell Keiichirou. I thought I was the only one who could understand the little retard.

Satsuki looked back up at the blackboard to make it look like she was paying attention. The one thing neither her or Amanojaku knew about was the person sitting on a branch, staring right at the red-headed ghost catcher.
