Chapter 1- Taken
I screamed in pain and horror as my brother was dragged away from me. I felt dizzy from the impact of my recent whack. I felt blood dripping down my neck. Someone had Hikaru, and wasn't going to give him back. I tried the run after him, but my legs failed and I fell forward. The last thing I heard was laughing and the sound of my brother being dragged across the tiles of the kitchen.
I woke up with white light shining on me. I opened my eyes and looked around. I was in a hospital.
I tried sitting up, but the intense pain in my head made me fall back down.
A nurse came in with a police officer behind her. I started to panic a bit.
Why were there police and where was Hikaru?!
"Mister Hitachiin, how are you feeling?" The nurse asked. "Fine…" I lied.
The policeman walked up to me, " My name is Mister Tsubaki. I have a few questions for you." I sat up and bit my lip, "Uh… What are they?"
Mister Tsubaki pulled out a notebook. Suddenly I remembered Hikaru was gone.
I panicked, "Where's my brother?! Where is he?!" I felt tears spring to my eyes.
"That is what my questions are about. You brother has gone missing."
"NO!" I yelled. I started crying, "What do you mean he's gone missing?!"
Then memories of last night flashed through my head, "He was taken." I said under my breath, and covered my mouth.
Hikaru was stolen from me. Stolen.
I was sitting on the hospital bed, covering my mouth, crying. I heard someone else enter the room.
"Kaoru, it's okay. We're sending out searches for him." I looked up to see Kyoya next to me.
"It doesn't matter! He's still gone and he could be getting hurt right now!" I cried.
I opened my eyes to a dark room. There were pebbles scattered around. I felt pain in my wrists, and looked down to see that they had cuffs that were chained to the wall. There was dry blood on my face and my arms, and on the bottom of my shirt.
Then I remembered last night.
Kaoru and I heard banging and thumping downstairs. We went down to see what was happening.
There was a masked man rummaging in the kitchen. I slowly approached him from behind.
"What are you doing?" Kaoru hissed at me. The man heard that. He spun around and wacked me in the head with a frying pan.
My vision went all patchy and I staggered backwards. I felt Kaoru catch me and start yelling at the man.
I heard a dull thud as Kaoru was hit in the head with a rolling pin. I felt his grip on me loosen, then an excruciating pain in my side.
I looked down and saw what I thought was a knife sticking out of me. I let out a cry.
I was barely conscious as I was dragged away by strange hands. I heard Kaoru yelling after me. I wanted to yell back, telling him I would stay with him. Then I heard and felt a thud as Kaoru fell onto the floor.
I shuddered at the memory. Then I heard footsteps outside the room and someone came in.
"Haruhi!" I yelped. She had an evil grin. I whimpered as she came closer, holding something sharp.
I sat up on the bed at the hospital. They had said I had to stay until the next day, concussion.
I heard a soft knock at the door. "What." My voice was rough from crying.
The door swung open and Tamaki, Kyoya, Hunny, and Mori stood.
Hunny came running in, "Oh Kao-Chan! I'm so sorry!" He vaulted up onto my bed and hugged me.
Mori followed his little cousin in and sat in one of the many seats in the room.
Tamaki came in with a book and Kyoya came in last.
"Hey Kaoru. How're you doing?" Tamaki gave me a weak smile.
I sighed and fiddled around with the top of the blanket, "Not great… Where's Haruhi?"
"She couldn't come. Said she had something on." Kyoya said, looking at his black book.
"Oh." I looked at my hands. Tamaki held out a book to me, "I got something for you."
I took the book from him. It was a novel, "Thanks."
"I got you some cake." Hunny held out a little box to me. I opened the lid and inside sat a small chocolate cake. "I'll have it later." I said and leaned back against the wall. Hunny nodded and went to put the box in the tiny fridge on the corner of the room. "There are lots of search parties." Mori said.
I nodded, "Okay. I just hope they find him soon…" Tears sprang to my eyes, "I miss him so much…"
Hunny hugged my arm. "Here. Usa-Chan will help." He held out his pink rabbit. I carefully set it down next to me.
Tamaki was chewing on his nails, something he did only when he wanted to ask a question.
"What are you thinking Tono?" I asked. He looked at me and cringed.
"If I tell you it might make you upset." I shook my head.
He sighed, "Fine. I was wondering if you knew who took him." When I winced, he shook his head, "Told you it would."
I bit my lip, "The-the man… He had a mask… But I saw red hair."
"Red? Like Ranka?" Kyoya asked. Realisation struck me, "Exactly…."
Haruhi had left, but not without hurting me.
I had fresh cuts all down my arms and one across my left eye. I couldn't see very well out of it.
I leaned my head back against the cool wall and sighed.
My hair was ruffled and my clothes were torn. I had bare feet. I wondered how Kaoru was.
Whether he was alright from the bonk on the head. Suddenly I heard a bang outside the room and Haruhi's father came in.
He started yelling things at me. I cringed away from him and curled into a ball in the corner of the room.
I felt a sharp pain strike across my shoulder, then Ranka was gone.
I looked at the spot that hurt. There was a new slash on my shoulder that wound around my shoulder blade.
I whimpered and closed my eyes.
