As consciousness slowly returned to Ichigo, she stirred. She groaned softly and the sound echoed in the cold, empty room. Ichigo blinked a couple of times, trying to make sense what had happened but the pain in her head didn't let her think. All she could remember was that she was walking home from school, then Masha appeared and decided to go crazy and she couldn't remember anything else after that.
"Ouch!" Ichigo groaned as she tried to get up. She was laying down on the floor. The room was pretty small and empty. There was no furniture and there was a small window at the back. It allowed a tiny bit of light in, but apart from that, the room was pretty dark. There was a door in the other side of the room but Ichigo was too tired to get up to open it.
Ichigo noticed that her Mew pendant was gone, and Masha wasn't with her either. She looked at herself, she was still wearing her school dress and she noticed that her school bag was lying next to her.
"Where on Earth am I..?" Ichigo asked herself.
After a while, Ichigo slowly forced herself to get up. She walked over to the door and just as she expected, she couldn't open it as it was locked. So she tried to see if she could hear anything from outside the room. But she couldn't hear anything. No whispers of anyone talking or any sort of noise. In fact, everything was quiet. Too quiet for Ichigo's liking.
Much to Ichigo's annoyance, she didn't have her watch with her either so she couldn't tell how long she was in there for. But since it seemed to be pretty dark outside, she guessed it was late. But what if she was there for days? Was that even possible?
When she couldn't open the door, she walked away from it in disappointment. She tried looking for her phone in her pockets and her bag next, but it wasn't there.
"What is this?!" Ichigo cursed under her breath, she was getting more and more annoyed as each second passed by.
As she was looking through her bag, she heard some footsteps outside. Ichigo stopped looking through her bag straight away, and she didn't know what to do and just decided to wait. She heard the door unlock and it slowly opened. Ichigo gulped.
The door opened and a tall cynoclon, with dark purple-greyish hair and indigo coloured eyes stood in front of her. Ichigo blinked a couple of times and stood up. Without her pendant, she couldn't transform or fight. She was scared and didn't know what to do.
"Where am I?" Ichigo asked angrily.
"I am not here to answer your questions," he replied.
"What do you want from me? Why am I here?"
The alien didn't reply but he placed a plate of food and a glass of water in front of her.
"Eat," he told her.
Ichigo couldn't believe this. She had no idea how she managed to end up in that room when she was supposed to be going home. And these people are expecting her to eat?
"I want to go home," Ichigo said, staring at him coldly.
But the alien stayed quiet and refused to say another word.
"WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME?!" Ichigo screamed. She took the plate of food and threw it to the wall. Ichigo was getting frustrated and helpless but she was going to get answers. She needed to know what was happening.
The alien with purple hair stared at the broken plate and glass. He sighed, "I knew it was a waste to spend food on you."
"I am asking you a question! Answer it!" Ichigo demanded.
"Miss Ichigo," the alien said in a cold voice. Ichigo became quiet instantly when hearing his voice, "Until you are here, you have to sit down quietly and not make a scene. I am saying this for your own good. And next time I suggest you don't do that with the food brought to you," he pointed to the broken plate and glass.
"I am not staying here. I am going home!"
Ichigo ran to the door but the alien held her by the arm.
"Let me go!"
"Fine," the alien said, "But you'll just get into more trouble."
He let her arm go. Without wasting another second Ichigo ran out.
"Humans are so stupid," the alien mumbled to himself and rolled his eyes when she was gone.
Ichigo ran out and ended up in some sort of hallway. She still had no idea where she was. But she couldn't get very far. Another alien appeared in front of her.
The alien stood in front of her but didn't say a word. A few seconds later the alien who bought her food before appeared next to him.
"That's the girl," The purple haired alien told him.
The other alien walked closer to her. Ichigo backed away a little.
"Oh look, she's getting scared," he chuckled.
Ichigo looked at him. He had dark green hair and golden yellow eyes. His skin was whiter than paper and he had big elf-like ears.
"Yes?" The purple haired alien looked up.
"Why did you let her out?" The green haired alien asked, not taking his eyes off Ichigo.
"She was being annoying," Pai replied.
"Pai, she's a human. Nothing more than a stupid little human," the green haired alien held Ichigo by the arm.
"Ow!" Ichigo screamed as he held her arm tightly and his long, sharp nails sunk in her skin.
"Kisshu, let her go!"
"Pai, today I will teach you how to make her listen. She will never listen if you are so nice to her. She's spoilt enough already," Kisshu responded.
"Let my hand go," Ichigo whispered, "Please..."
"See? She's already using manners," Kisshu smirked.
Pai shrugged, "Do whatever you want, just make sure she doesn't cause a scene."
"No...What are you going to do to me?"
Kisshu held her arm tighter and took her to that room again.
"Now listen to me very carefully," he told her letting her arm go, "You are going to sit here quietly. Or else."
"Or else what?"
Kisshu stopped for a moment and decided to observe her more closely. But he only grinned, "Or you will be dead meat. Just like your parents."
And with that he left the room, locking the door behind him.
