Prologue
The rain pelted my skin, sending shivers down my spine. My limbs ached, and I desperately wanted to lie down and rest. But I couldn?t. I had to keep running, and I couldn?t stop. My hair dripped water in my eyes, and my vision began to blur. I wiped the water away and shoved my hair out of my face. Adrenaline pumped through my veins, and my mind was racing. My breaths were short and heavy.
?Just stay still so I can hit you!? a girl shouted from behind me. She sent a stream of water at me and it hit me square in the back.
I fell to the ground and hit my face on the hard dirt. A warm liquid trickled down my face, and the cool rain washed it away. A pair of footsteps caught up to me and soon enough I felt a foot on my back, pressing me to the ground.
?You?re weak, you know that?? she hissed in my ear.
No I?m not!
I wanted to shout, but my mouth wouldn?t move. I could barely keep my eyes open, and I was too weak to try and get her off me.
She struck me in the side with her foot, and I rolled over onto my back. Her hard amber eyes stared into me, sending chills down my spine. There were so many things I wanted to say to her, but I couldn?t bring myself to. I opened my mouth to say something, and she noticed this, for she asked me,
?Is there something you want to say?? She spoke in such a mocking tone, that it was almost hard to believe I once knew this girl. Almost.
Then, with a horrid laugh, she brought her foot back and struck the side of my head. She did this a few times, before turning to leave. She looked back at me, and for a brief moment, I thought I saw a flicker of regret. But it quickly disappeared and I felt unconsciousness pull me under its spell.

I know you are all wondering how this story ends, but what would an end be, without a beginning?

Sorry I haven't been on guys! I feel really bad, but we were setting up a huge sweet 16 party, so everything's been so hectic. The party is tomorrow, so after that I will be able to post more often. Again, I am so sorry!!

@Purplemas,
When you wanna get to the boards from the nick site you just have to go to any page for a show on nick (not nick jr.) and there's either gonna be a boards button or a more button, click on the boards button if there is one, if not its under the more options button. Once you're to the board for that show there's an orange "message boards" button next to the name of the board you're on. Click that. Fanfiction specific boards are under the my nick selection button. Hope I helped

Also, does anyone know how to get to the boards from just the nick site? I have a way to get to the actual boards directly, but I am having trouble navigating through the site now and can't figure out how to get to the boards. Thanks in advance for the help!

Okay, guys I probably won't update my story since they are going to do that renovation thingy to the site unless you guys REALLY want me to. I just don't really see the point if it's just gonna get deleted anyways. But you guys tell me what you think. : ) Love you lots!

I can't wait to read more of the story And FFN means . net, not Network. I could always give you a few pointers, find Ash the Next Avatar on there and I wrote it (I can't say my username on here because it's an account on a different website)
MODS PLEASE POST, I'M JUST HELPING A FELLOW AUTHOR OUT.

Purplemas,

Great chapter part! I'm so happy for Chie and Yuki. Things are looking up for those two. But there's still time for things to go wrong... *^*

@faloan123:
Thank you for keeping this story up while I was gone!
Yeah, I know what you mean with the stress of keeping up with the stories on here. I've tried FFN but I never really got the hang of it. I couldn't figure it out hahaha. And is it Fan Fiction Network or .net (FanFiction)? Lol, hope that makes sense (Mods if I can't say that, can you please just delete that questions and not the entire post? I'd really appreciate it).

@13Nu13:
Thanks, I'm glad you liked it! And I'm sorry to hear about your math education. That stinks that you have to make up the work even though it wasn't your fault. But that's good that you're ahead now : )

As I walked home for the day, I counted the money I collected. When I saw that I had only made a little bit, I sighed and walked in my front door.
?How was work?? Chie asked.
?Not so good. Did you get the job?? I asked.
?Yes, they said that I can start working tomorrow.?
?That?s great! Can you do me a favor? Put this money in the box upstairs.? I placed the coins in her hand and she brought them upstairs. ?I?m going out for a little while. I shouldn?t be gone for very long. If you need me, I?ll be at Tsuyo-sa?s house,? I shouted up to her, then headed over to Tsuyo-sa?s house. I knocked on his door and he slowly opened it.
?Come in,? he said and I followed him in. The moment I stepped in his door, the house felt empty. There was something missing, yet it felt familiar. Then I realized that it was the same feeling that fell over my house right after my parents died.
?So, what?s up?? I asked as he sat down on the couch. I sat next to him.
?Remember when we agreed that we were going to start over?? he asked. I nodded. ?Well, how far back are we starting over? Because I don?t want to go back to when we were just friends.?
?Are you saying what I think you?re saying?? I asked.
?Yes,? he took my hands. ?I love you.?
I felt myself blush. ?I love you, too.?

?I?m sorry, Chie,? I said to her as she sat next to me.
?It?s alright,? she responded, massaging my shoulders a little to help relieve some of my tension and stress.
?I don?t know where that girl gets it, or why she thinks she owns the house. I don?t even know where she is,? I sighed.
?She just needs some time to cool off. She?ll come home eventually. Once she realizes she can?t live without you, she?ll come back,? she assured me.
?I guess.?
?Do you want me to get a job?? Chie smiled.
I looked up at her and smiled back. Chie was one of the most mature people I know, especially of all my siblings.
?Because I heard that there were some job openings at the new tea shop down the street. And supposedly, they pay well.?
?Thank you,? I told her.
She sat back down at the table and stared at me for a minute. ?Do you want to talk about Tsuyo-sa??
I shook my head. ?It?d be best if we kept this between us. I don?t want anyone to get their hopes up if I decide not to.?
?I understand,? she said quietly. ?I guess I?ll try and get that job.?
?Good luck,? I told her, then gave her a hug. Once she left, the house felt cold and empty. It was a strange new feeling. Our house was always loud, warm, and welcoming. But now it was uninviting. I got up from the table and walked out the door so I could get to work. But as I walked down the street, Tsuyo-sa was just coming out of his house. He ran up to me and started walking with me. It was quite awkward in my opinion.
?Yuki, I did a lot of thinking last night,? he finally said. ?And I realized that you?re right. It would be a little rushed if we got married right now. I pushed you to do something you weren?t ready for, and for that, I?m truly sorry.?
I stopped walking. Did he just apologize to me? Tsuyo-sa never admitted he was wrong, even when he was and he knew it. ?I forgive you,? I told him quietly and continued walking.
?Do you think we can just start over before things got awkward between us? I miss you.?
?Yeah, I?d really like that,? I admitted.
?So what now?? he asked as we walked into the marketplace.
?This is where we say goodbye because I reached my destination.? Tsuyo-sa laughed, then hugged me. I was just about to get to my stand, but he stopped me.
?Wait.?
?Yes??
?Can we talk later?? he asked, sounding a little nervous.
?You don?t want to talk now?? I asked.
?I want to talk in private with you, if that?s okay.?
?Yeah, sure.?
?Meet me at my place after work?? he smiled.
?Sure.? I smiled back.
He watched me as I walked behind my small fruit stand and waited for customers. Then, he walked away, heading off to the tea shop where he worked. Or, at least, that?s where I assume he was going. I sighed, and hoped business would be good enough to make up for what I?d lost during the raid.

@Purplemas,
Okay, I'm gonna try to send this AGAIN, hopefully it doesn't get stopped. I stopped writing on here because it was literally stressing me out more than school worrying about "will my story still be there when I get home" and stuff. So I moved to FFN. Can't wait for your next chapter, this story is amazing

Purplemas,

I love this story! How could I hold back my compliments, what?! ^^ Also, I'm excited to watch the story draw closer and closer to the prologue.

Well, my previous school was extremely lacking in the math-education-department, thanks to an... interesting... teacher. So I needed to catch up on math. But now I'm actually getting ahead in math.

Post soon!!
