When We Meet Again

By Tillygills

Romance / Adventure

Chapter 1

Sweet piano notes ring throughout the deserted hallways of the empty school, only leaving the baby grand's luscious sounds emanating off the walls.

The girl's hands dance about the ivory keys with ease making beautiful melodies mold together as she plays. Her long white hair sways back and forth in a high ponytail held up by a single silk red ribbon as she moves with the music.

The breeze from outside sweeps through the opened windows guiding loose sakura petals into the room, littering the floor and piano top with pink flowers. The girl's eyes are closed, intently listening to the flowing lyrics rising off the moving soundboards into the air around her body.

The scene appears like a movie before the on looking boy from the other side of the schools courtyard. He can't help but set down his pencil and lean onto the opened windows edge and listen to the distracting noise. The boys blue orbs focus on the girl sitting on the piano bench. Her school uniform is a little rustled and un-tucked from the red and black plaid skirt, with her white sleeves unbuttoned and rolled up to her elbows. Her unusual unadulterated hair intrigues the boy and he wonders to himself if the white strands are as soft as they look. He had never seen this girl before, he was certain of that. She wasn't in any of his classes, and he'd never seen her outside of school or at lunchtime either. He wanted to meet this mystery girl.

"Takakazu what are you doing? Your supposed to be…. wait why are all the windows open?" A taller black haired boy says appearing at the opened classroom door. The other snaps out of his interrupted daydreams to hush the loud intruder.

"Shhh! Be quiet Kai I'm trying to listen." Walking over to the window to see what his friend was talking about he glances out across the empty courtyard to the other side of the building, but there was no one there but an empty music room and an old sleek black baby grand piano closed up and untouched. Kai turns staring back at his friend with the mixed expression of amusement and confusion spreading across his face.

"I think you need your head checked Tray, there's no one there." The shorter boy snaps his head back to where he saw the girl before, but no one was there and the room looked unused. Tray stutters a moment and turns back to his smug friend obviously enjoying himself.

"She was there! She was playing the piano, and she had long white hair with a red ribbon." This seemed to catch Kai's attention at the mention of white hair and red ribbon.

"White?" He asks the light brunette from the windowsill.

"Yeah, why do you know her? Who is she?"

"Well if I'm correct she might be an Evans, with the way you described her hair." His golden eyes shift to outside the window to think, watching a pair of butterflies flutter past.

"Evans? Like as in Last Death Scythe Evans?" Tray asks in confusion. Kai stands straightening his uniform before picking up the mostly blank test on the desk beside them. He frowns at his friend's unfinished work and just shakes his head in disappointment.

"You do know that this is an important Miesters test to get accepted into the EAT class, right?" Kai only catches a glimpse of Tray's white uniform before heading out the door into the hallway. "Where do you think your going?" Kai says following his companion.

"Where do you think, I'm going after that girl!" Tray yells running down the hallway and turning the corner before Kai can stop him.

"Well, there he goes again making rash decisions without thinking. Whoever your partner may be Tray Takakazu will be a special one, won't they?" The boy says to himself before breaking into a jog.

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...

Stephen Warner: To start off, I am thoroughly impressed. The writing style is somewhat unique, and the plot seemed to move at a nice and steady pace. However, I was not expecting this to be a vampire book! I am usually not one for novels about vampires, but I was pleasantly surprised! You wrote with such grace a...

Laraine Smith: Your story is both sweet and beautiful! You are a true artist! Keep up the great work! I also love the picture that you chose for your book! :)

ElusiveBadwolf: I loved this book so much! It's a shame that i already came to the end of this. I really enjoyed the story, and i liked it how everything became in the end. It was a great book and i can say that you are a great writer too. Keep it that way and i think you can make it in the writing business!

Sandra Estrada: I loved every minute of it and I thank my lucky stars that brought me to the story, it's been a whirlwind of emotions, plot twist after plot twist but I never got tired of them. Abby and Kade's story is a hard one to understand but once you're submerged in their story and love, you can't help but...

Samantha Speed: There were several punctuation, grammar, and missing word problems but it did not detract from the story. This story was very well done, enjoyable, and had an interesting enough plot. It took a while to finish. This story is not complete. I love it, but I want to see another book or have more cha...

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly. I do not believe the author put the apostrophes in the names just to be unique, but because the characters are supposedly of a different race than humans. They are Anmah. They should have different names a...

maewilde25: I liked this, though it dragged on for over 200pages and heaven knows I did not expect the plot twist in the middle. David being Cristiãn. I was wondering when he would show up and didn't know he was there all along. it looks like there should be a sequel, please let there be a sequel. I know the...

CookieMonster911: The story overall was an adventure that is appealing to any age. The way the characters develop adds a more human characteristic to the novel. The writing style itself is amazing because you can learn every character's thoughts and emotions. The awkward love triangle and jerk moments adds to the ...

maewilde25: I am so in love with this story!!! captivated me till the very end, there wasn't a dull moment. Didn't particularly enjoy the lay out and some bits of info was missing along with how a 21 year old man amassed so much wealth that needed to be explained other than that and a few spelling errors, th...

Lydia Walters: I really enjoyed this novel. It gives us a view of what could be if we really tried.Also that there's nothing wrong with loving our LORD and our fellow humans. couldn't wait to get to each new chapter (mission). Thanks, Joe!

JONANNA: As an avid reader it is not often I say that about a book. The plot is what was different and the twists where unexpected. This book is defiantly a page turner and enjoyable read. I can't wait to reread this novel after a little editing to finish off the shine on this wonderful novel.

Roy Jenner: I was pleased to join the action where this B-17 was limping back across the English Channel defying all odds. Obviously written by a person more than familiar with the interior of the Flying Fortresses that were familiar in the skies of Southern England during World War 2. Plenty of action here ...

Grapes Are Juicy yes!!!: I give this novel FIVE STARS ! This novel is worth reading from the beginning to the end! The plot and conflicts in this story are very smartly integrated. The language facility is a little odd , but i guess this was done on purpose, given the novel's set era. Other than that, this should definit...
