You probably know who I am. I'm the guy with long, silver hair, icy blue eyes, as well as an icy attitude. Yup. I'm Tokiya Mikagami. I'm the guy who owns the ensui sword, which my sister, Mifuyu, who died, gave me in her deathbed.

You probably know my 'friends' as well. Recca, the monkey, Domon the gorilla, Fuuko, the tomboyish ape, and Yanagi who resembles my sister very well. Oh, I almost forgot Ganko and Koganei.

I'm sure you know when I've met them by now. But for all of you who don't know, I met them when I was 17 years old, when I was in third year high school. I don't have to tell you every single detail so I'll stop there.

Right now, I'm currently in first year college. I'm living in Kyoto at the moment, since I've been accepted in one of the prestigious universities there. Kyoto, which is a long train ride away from Tokyo, is very peaceful and beautiful. Very different from the bustling city of Tokyo.

I haven't seen any of my friends for more than half a year now since college is very difficult, even for me. But I don't actually get depressed everyday, you know. Well, just a little bit every now and then.

Anyway, right now I've just arrived in Tokyo. You might be wondering what I'm doing here. Well, every student in my college was just given two weeks vacation. I don't know why, but who cares? This only came once a year.

I decided to take a stroll in the park then to my old high school. It was already 4:30 and I was sure that students were already dismissed by this time. I don't know why I wanted to go back there, but I guess I was hoping to see one of my friends there.

When I arrived at the park, I bought a scoop of ice cream on a cone and ate it as I sat on a bench, watching small children play in the playground.

After finishing the rest of the ice cream, I proceeded to going to the school. When I reached the school gate, I scanned the whole campus for at least one of my friends.

But no luck.

I guess this trip was meaningless. I walked away, my head down, and dragging my feet along. But I was here now, in Tokyo, so I decided to at least enjoy the rest of the day.

I passed along a coffee shop, so I went in to drink a cup of coffee and some afternoon snacks. As I entered the shop, all the girls turned their heads and stared at me. Some had hearts in their eyes. I was used to this already, because this happened also when I entered my college classroom for the first time.

I went up to the counter and ordered a cappuccino and some cookies. After paying, I sat on one of the tables and took my time finishing my coffee and cookies. I looked outside the window and watched the cars pass by.

Then I saw a reflection of a girl who was looking at me. I didn't ask her to leave since I thought she was just one of those brainless girls who had a crush on me. But.something about her was very familiar. But I just thought I was tired.

Then. said something.


I looked back at her, my eyes wide open. Only one person called me with that nickname.

And that was Fuuko.


She smiled happily, then approached me.

"Long time, no see!"

She slapped me on the back and then hugged me tightly.

I was frozen as she embraced me, possibly because she didn't look like the Fuuko I knew before.

Her hair had grown longer, reaching her shoulders, and she had some lip gloss on. She had a slim and slender body, which could be seen even with her uniform on.

Finally.her femininity had already shown.

But I had to admit.she looked very pretty despite her tomboyish attitude.

Fuuko released me and looked at me, with a big smile on her face.

"How have you been?"

"I'm fine."

She sat down on a chair across me, as I sat on my own chair as well.

"So.anything new?"

"No.no." I answered. "How about you? Your hair's long."

She unconsciously tucked her hair behind her ears. "Yeah.well.Yanagi forced me to.she thought it would look nice. Well, I think so too, you know."

I smirked as I ate one of my cookies.

We talked for a long time in the coffee shop, about school, people, etc. I actually enjoyed having her as company. But then, it was almost sundown and I still had to catch my train.

When I was about to say goodbye, she took a hold of my hand and stopped me.

"Wait! Why don't you stay at my house?"

"Uh.I don't know."

"C'mon, my mom won't mind. She actually likes having guests at home."

I was reluctant at first, telling her I didn't have spare clothes and all, but still she insisted. Finally, I took her invitation.

Finally finishing my coffee, we left the café and walked back to her house.
