Momoko's P.O.V

We just watched Kaoru walk away with Ace and the other boys. I turned to Shin and Miyako.

"Are you guys ready to go?" I asked. They both nodded. I smiled then turned to Brick and Boomer. "Can we go now? I'm kinda tired after all of this." They nodded.

We thanked Hansuke and walked out the back door. "Why can't we take the limo?" complained Boomer.

"Becuase, little brother, we would get no where, what with all the fan girls crowding around."

"Oh, yeah. Ahha..."

Brick rolled his eyes and continued walking. I looked back and see Shin standing, looking down.

"Hey, Shin? Are you ok? You seem kinda down..."

"Hm? Oh, yeah I'm ok, Momoko. Thanks."

"Well, ok. Come on, we don't want to be stuck out on the streets, let's go to the hotel room." I tried to smile and calm her down, but she gave me a fake smile and started walking. I sighed and let it go, for now. When we meet up with Kaoru I'll ask her about it...

"Hey, Momoko. Momoko!"

"Yeah, Brick?"

"You beeped out, are you ok?"

"Oh, yeah I'm fine!" I smiled.

"Hey, you two love birds! Come on, or we might be late for the concert!"

"Shut up Boomer!" Brick screamed. He was blushing... He looks really cute when he blushes. OH CRAP NOW I'M BLUSHING! STOP THINKING ABOUT IT! WE HAVE MORE PRESSING MATTERS!

"Um... guys... where's Shin?" Miyako asked timidly. OH GOD.

"OH GOD! SHIN! SHIN WHERE ARE YOU?!" I screamed frantically.

"Momoko calm down don't panic!" Brick said, hugging me from behind. Well, more like restraining me...

"I think we should split up... try and find her." Wow. Boomer said something helpful.

"Good idea, Boomer. I'll go with Momoko, and you go with Miyako. Sound good?" We all nodded and went off searching.

Miyako's P.O.V

"Hey Boomer, you don't think Kaoru's dad found her, do you?"

"I don't think so. She would have screamed or something. I think she just walked off..."

"But why would she?"

"I'm not sure, let's just work on finding her, ok?"

We kept walking in scilence until I heard a scream in the distnace.

"B-Boomer? W-what was that? I-it kinda sounded like K-Kaoru..."

"C-clam down, Miyako, I'm sure Butch was just being a perv or something..."

"A perv? He doesn't seem like that type..."

"Oh, believe me, he is. When we were younger, at least. Then we became famous, and girls started to annoy him."

"...Oh. BOOMER!"

"GAH! What, Miyako?"

I could feel myself start to cry. That couldn't be what I think it is... Shin never took that off for anything. She always kept it on...

"I-it's Shin's necklace... She never took it off. Boomer, I think she's in some serious trouble..."

Momoko's P.O.V

I really feel like it's my fault, I mean, something was up. She wouldn't just stop and stand there. She was thinking of something. I'm really worried she'll try something. I started to cry at the thought. Shin was like a little sister to me.

"SHIN!" I screamed through more than a few tears. We were walking on the sidewalk, towards Hansuke's. We headed that way while Miyako headed toward her (Miyako's) house. But right now, she could be anywhere.

Brick has been holding my hand the entire time, petting it with his thumb. It was claming me down a little, but not enough. I was crying really hard, but not making any noise. The last thing I wanted was for Brick to notice, we stop looking, and Shin gets farther away. Unfortunatly, while he was looking my way, and saw the tears.

"Hey, why are you crying? I'm sure she's fine."

"I-I know, b-but she's b-been th-thinking about stuff lately..." I said through more tears. His eyes got wide and his mouth hung open a little.

"What will her dad do if she magnages to... you know."

"Well, he'll probably go after Aki and Aoi. Then Kaoru."

"After them? I know he won't stop there."

"Well, probably Miyako and me. Then anyone off the streets."

"That blood crazy bastard..." Brick mumbled, as we continued walking. It had been a good five minutes before we heard something like a scream. I stopped mid-step. I'd heard that scream far too many times.

"KAORU!" I screamed at the top of my lungs, bursting into a new batch of tears, falling to my knees.


I couldn't answer, I just kept crying, harder than I ever have in my life.

"Momoko, I'm sure it's nothing! Butch would protect her! I'm sure she's fine!" He said, kneeling on the ground. He pulled me into his chest and I kept crying. He just pet my head until I calmed down enough to talk.

"Karou's not the problem yet! She only screams like that when her brothers or sister are beaten and she can't stop her dad! I've never heard it that loud though! THAT MEANS SOMEONE'S..."

Brick's eyes got wide and he stood up, taking me with. "Momoko, we have to get going, now. We'll meet up with Boomer and Miyako. Let's go."

I nodded with tears still in my eyes and started to walk.

No One's P.O.V

The reds and blues met up at a corner. They started walking down the sidewalk, headed towards the hotel. They'd decided to rest for a minute or two, then get back to looking for Shin.

As they reached the hotel, they enter to see an amazing sight. They were looking at the eleven year old girl they had been searching for. She was asleep on the couch in the little lobby. Brick went up to the clerk to ask her about Shin.

They started talking and pointing and such.

Brick came back and explained the story, with a relieved look on his face. "She came in and asked for our room. The lady knew we were famous, so she just told her to wait over here until we come."

Everyone signed out in relife. Brick picked up the sleeping girl and went off to their room. Boomer followed, leaving Momoko and Miyako behind.

Miyako's P.O.V

We watched Boomer skip towards thier room. I turned to Momoko, seeing her with a worried face.

"Momoko? Did you hear Kaoru scream too?"

"Yeah, do you think something happened to Butch? I mean, he's the only one closer to her than us. And I know I would scream like that if something happened to Brick..."

"I know, but what about Aki and Aoi?"

"No, Kaoru would never let that happen..."

"You're right. Maybe it wasn't even Kaoru..."

"It probably wasn't. We should just forget about it."

"Ok. Come on, I wan't to see Boomie's room!"

"Boomie? Really?"

AND scene. THANKS FOR STICKING WITH ME! Alright, so wazzup. I liked this chapter. Nice and long, I think. Quick note! I got a lovely suprise for you lovelies. But I'm not going to tell you what it is. You'll find out soon enough... ^.^
