An Open Window

It has been a year since Deep Blue was defeated. Ichigo was walking around the park outside enjoying the sun shining brightly in the clear cloudless sky. It had been raining for the past few days so Ichigo decided to have a walk around before it starts to rain again. She gave a long sigh before sitting on one if the benches nearby hoping it wouldn't rain. 

According to the weather forecast on the news, it wouldn't but Ichigo bought her umbrella just in case. Hours passed and Ichigo just sat on the bench lost in a world of her own. She had been doing that a lot lately. She couldn't stop thinking about the battle with Deep Blue. She remembered every single detail of it; it was impossible for her to forget. She was not a Mew Mew anymore since she couldn't transform into her Mew form. Now she was just Ichigo. She doesn't need to fight any aliens or worry about saving the world.

That made Ichigo very happy. She never liked the idea of becoming a superhero, having to fight aliens and to save the world. It would be nice to wear pretty costumes and to have super powers, it would also put some adventure on Ichigo's life. The only problem with that is that it would put too much adventure on someone's live. 

Ichigo just thought that it was too much of a big responsibility that a teenage girl like herself could have. She already has enough problems as it is. Having to wake up early in the morning to go to school every day and living with an overprotective dad who gets a little bit too overprotective at times isn't her idea of fun. 

The last thing someone like her would want is to face a perverted alien nearly every day. But she did it. Ichigo and the rest of the Mew Mews were able to 'save the world'. Something she never thought she would be able to do.

Ichigo didn't change much since the final battle with Deep Blue. After all it was only a year. She has gotten a little bit taller than before and her hair grew a little bit longer as well. Just a little bit. Apart from that nothing else changed. The rest of the Mews didn't change much either. 

Zakuro was still a pretty model and actress, Mint was still demanding and refuses to work most of the time, Lettuce was still clever and loved reading and Pudding was still just as much if not more energetic than she was before she even became a Mew Mew. They were all just a year older.

It was starting to get dark outside. Ichigo doesn't know what time it is exactly because she forgot her watch at home but she guessed that it was around eight o'clock. So without wasting another second she started to head home hoping that her dad wouldn't scold her for staying out for so long. 

After a few minutes of walking Ichigo was able to reach her house. Her dad was about to scold her but Ichigo's mum stopped him just in time. Ichigo smiled at her mum to say 'thank you' and quickly ran upstairs to her room. She opened the door before she felt a cold gust of wind welcoming her inside. 

It was strange because the window was opened and Ichigo was sure she closed it before going out. But that wasn't what made her surprised. It was the fact that on top of her desk lays a pretty rose that Ichigo did not remember seeing. It was a bright red rose which filled the room with its beautiful scent.
