The Devil's Sweet Princess

By artisthebest

Romance

Alien Alert!

Ichigo gave a long sigh as she stared out of the window, watching the clouds slowly floating by. She was lost in her own world again as her lessons didn't interest her much. She just had another exam in her previous lesson and she wasn't in the mood for another long, boring lesson.

"Ichigo, answer the next question please!" She jumped at this and looked back to the notes her teacher made in the board. Her teacher was standing there, waiting for an answer with a stern looking face. This wasn't good. Ichigo blinked a couple of times and blushed in embarrassment. Everyone knew she didn't have a clue what was going on.

"Miss Ichigo Momomiya, please concentrate next time. You can't expect to do well in exams if you don't concentrate in your lessons, yes?"

"Yes, miss," Ichigo said, giving a small nod. She mentally kicked herself and told her mind to stop daydreaming in class. Or at least to not get caught paying little attention. Next time, she could get in bigger trouble.

As the classes came to an end and the teacher dismissed the class, Ichigo quickly got up and left the room. Her friend, Lettuce soon followed her.

"What's up?" She said, smiling. Ichigo smiled back, "Want to walk home with me?"

"Sure, let's go." Ichigo and Lettuce walked out of school, and chatted for a while. They waved goodbye to their other classmates and kept walking.

"What are you going to do when you get home?" Lettuce asked.

"I don't know. I will probably just sleep for the rest of the day."

Lettuce laughed, "We have another exam tomorrow, when are you going to revise?"

"Yeah, you're right. I haven't been concentrating in lessons enough or revising. But I will get rubbish grades anyway so what's the point?"

Lettuce shook her head, "Don't say that." Lettuce knew Ichigo was much smarter than she thought. She just needed to try a little harder and she will be able to achieve anything she wanted. The only problem was that she was incredibly lazy.

"But it's true," Ichigo groaned, "I mean look at you, you do well in everything. And I can't even concentrate in lessons or answer the easiest questions. The stupid aliens don't make this any easier."

"That's true but..." Lettuce sighed, "If you give up this easily, you are probably right. You will not do well in anything."

Ichigo was just about to reply, but Lettuce's phone rang. She reached to her bag and took her phone out.

"Hello?"

Ichigo walked quietly, listening to what Lettuce was saying. She tried to figure out what she was talking about but she decided that it would be easier to ask when she finished talking.

"What? Now?" Lettuce exclaimed. Ichigo looked at her, confused. "But I..." Lettuce gave a quiet groan, "Fine. I will be there by four. Bye, mum."

Ichigo gave her a questioning look when she put her phone away. "I have to go my uncle's house."

"Why?"

"I don't know, my mum is already there. It must be urgent but my mum didn't say why on the phone," Lettuce explained.

"Oh."

"I am sorry, I can't walk home with you today."

"Call me as soon as you reach there and tell me what happened."

Lettuce nodded. She hugged Ichigo who waved goodbye as she walked away. Ichigo sighed one more time that day. She tried not to feel too disappointed as she didn't have anyone to walk home with her.

"Ichigo!" She heard a voice scream. Ichigo turned around to see Lettuce waving at her.

"Study hard! Don't give up!" She heard her shout.

Ichigo grinned, "I will! And I won't!" Ichigo turned back round and smiled, "Don't worry, Lettuce. I won't give up," she whispered to herself. With that, Ichigo ran home. She stopped at a nearby store to get her breath back. This time, she started walking at a slower pace.

She looked at her watch and thought for a moment. "Hm...I will be home by time."

"Alien alert! Alien alert! Alien alert!"

Masha, the little robot appeared out of nowhere. Ichigo's eyes widened. Not this again. She was in no mood to fight, she was already tired and Lettuce just left. Ichigo never really enjoyed these moments in the first place.

She turned out to see where they were. Her heart was beating fast and her hands started to shake. All of her thoughts were spinning around in her head, she quickly got ready to transform into a Mew Mew. But before Ichigo could transform or do anything else, she felt something hard hit her neck and head, along with a rush of pain. And then with a loud thud, she fell to the ground before everything went black.
