Alright, finally I got chapter 2 up. DON'T KILL ME. I completely forgot about this then someone messaged me on DA and said I need to get it done. So I did. I'm trying to remember my original plot line, so, it might take a while. But I have already started chapter 3. So, please bear with me. I hope it'll be done before 2012, if not, someone get on my ass please!

And just cause,


Even though that has nothing to do with this at all. It's just on a 10 hour loop and playing~ =w=

She stepped out and the chill of early February caught her, sending a shiver down her spine. The night sky hadn't completely left yet, leaving the dark to set a semi-mysterious feel onto her surroundings. The stairs were covered in snow. Probably ice underneath. She took a step forward, towards the stairs, and almost slipped. Reaching a hand out to her side, she caught herself on the side of the railing that led down to the stairs. With her eyes wide, she quickly pulled herself up and steadied herself against the railing.

"That was a close one." She mumbled, looking down at the. How was she supposed to get down the stairs? Taking a deep breath she put one foot in front of the other, placing it gently on the ice and easing herself onto it. She got steady and put her other foot onto it. She didn't place it right, and ended up falling down the icy stairs to land flat on her butt at the bottom.

"…Damnit…!" Her ears rang with the pain in her head and her knee. She could see blood forming under the pants. "Does blood even come out of these?" she asked, brushing the snow off of her slacks. Her bag was gone. Whipping her head side to side in search of her bag, she found it-with the contents spilled out- a couple feet away. She groaned and picked herself up, slowly, as to not hurt herself more. Walking over to her phone, spiral, and wallet she kneeled down and picked them up, stuffing them into her bag with an exasperated expression.

"Great…Now I'm going to be late…" She sighed and tried to think of the fastest way to school. …She could call Tamaki. He'd be there in an instant. No. She's not going to ruin her pride like that, even if he would do it just to be nice.

She set off walking North down her street towards her school.

"Really. You would think the school would have transporta- …never mind. They're all rich…" She sighed again and picked up her pace a bit, at the same time fumbling with her bag to get out her phone to check the time. What she didn't expect was that it was turned off, most likely a bit waterlogged. Lucky the twins got her a waterproof cell phone. She turned it on and heard the annoying ring that came with it. Unlocking her phone, she expected to check the time. She didn't expect to get bombarded with text messages and missed calls wishing her a happy birthday. It made her smile.

Just as she was about to put it into her pocket it began to ring. Curiously she opened it and looked at the caller ID. Seeing a picture of twin red-heads, she rolled her eyes and answered the phone. "Hello?" she answered, trying to sound surprised. She told them she didn't put caller ID on her phone yet.

"Happy Birthday Haruhi!" the twins said in unison. She smiled widely and continued her walk under trees that were sprinkled with fresh fallen snow.

"Thank you." She said, her voice soft as she took in the beauty of the park she was in.

"Where are youuu~?" they asked. She could hear the pout in their voice. Haruhi thought for a minute; today was her study hall day. She literally didn't have any classes. Looking back up at the sky, a snowflake fell upon her nose. She stared at it for a moment before sighing.

"I…I don't think I'm going to come in to school today…" she said. The twins were thoroughly disappointed.

"Why not!" they asked, their lips quivering by the phone. The rest of the host club had gathered around them and they put her on speaker.

"I don't need to." She shrugged. "I think I'm going to go on a walk now, maybe go out to lunch with my dad or something." The ideas were flowing through her head, and they were endless. Well, they came to an end when she realized she had little money. The twins kept their pout. Haruhi smiled and hung up, telling them goodbye.
