Black Pawn

Chapter One: Sisters:

July 7th, 1979.

"Promise me we will stay together forever, big brother."

He smiled and took her tiny hand, "I promise."

June 1st, 2009.

Anna's motive for revenge began with another e-mail. Curious, the woman licked on the alert. The address was from thehawk and the title had no subject.

Huh?, Anna thought. Instinct told her to delete it, but curiosity won out. Anna clicked on the message.

Look up Kimoto Yumiko and Kirika.

How do they know about aunts Yumiko and Kirika?, Anna thought as she stared at the screen, and why do they want me to look them up? The woman opened a new tab and started her Google search.

"Kimoto Yumiko and Kirika," she said as she typed it in. When the suggestion box popped up, Anna's eyes widened at the first suggestion.

Kimoto Yumiko and Kirika disappearance?, she thought. She had heard of the stories, but that was all they were. Anna clicked on the suggestion and the results came up in seconds. She looked through everything. One link caught her eye; a case file from the police that had been declassified in the nineties. Anna felt her heart racing against her chest. She was going deeper into the abyss; one click and it was all a one-way trip. Part of her screamed "run away," but yet, curiosity ate at her psyche. Anna clicked on the link and the page popped up in seconds.

"April 26th, 1982," Anna read, "Thirteen-year-old Kimoto Kirika reported missing. 137.16 cm, short black-brown hair to her ears, and skinny frame, last seen in a white t-shirt, blue short shorts, pink sneakers, gold butterfly earrings, and a bright yellow shoulder bag, leaving her home in Arima, Kita-ku, Kobe. Case may be connected to older sister's, Kimoto Yumiko, disappearance two months prior. No word on Yumiko's case."

Aunt Yumiko, Aunt Kirika…, Anna thought. She sat back in her chair and looked at her bracelet. This used to be Kirika's; Daisuke trusted his daughter with the jewelry. Anna heard stories about her father's younger sisters. Daisuke spoke positively about them, but yet he always seems so sad. A thought crossed Anna's mind.

What if…grandma killed them?, she thought. Haruka did have Daisuke killed that night ten years ago. What if she had the sisters killed for the same reason? Anna toughened up with her thoughts. She would have to tell Tsuzuki in the morning.

Meanwhile, Emiko and Hotaru lied in bed together after sex. Hotaru was just about to go to sleep. Emiko had just shut her eyes when a great idea crossed her mind. She quickly opened her eyes and rolled over.

"Hoto-chan," she whispered as she gently tapped her girlfriend on the arm, "Hoto-chan, get up! I have to tell you something!" The Loli Goth mumbled to herself as she woke back up.

"What is it, Emiko-sama?" she questioned. Her girlfriend smiled at her.

"Got a great idea!" she whispered. Hotaru tilted her head at her.

"What?" she asked.

Emiko chuckled in the dark. "You notice how Anna and Tsuzuki seem so close together, right?"

Hotaru thought about that for a second, "Yeah, why?"

Emiko leaned in close to her face, "I think, now go with me here, okay?"

Hotaru nodded at her, "Okay, I am following."

Emiko smiled and took a deep breath. Hotaru watched now intrigued. Her girlfriend grinned at her latest developing plot.

She leaned in close to her girlfriend's ear, "Let's hook them up in a steamy romantic relationship!" Hotaru turned to her looking uneasy.

The butch demon noticed her face, "What's wrong?"

Hotaru shrugged, "I'm not sure this is a good idea."

Emiko looked at her funny, "What do you mean? It's perfect!"

Hotaru shook her head, "What if something goes wrong?"

Her girlfriend sat up, "Hoto-chan, this isn't like you. You're usually onboard with my matchmaking schemes."

Her girlfriend took a long breath out., "It's just…"

"Just what?"

The loli demon looked up at her, "They both are emotionally damaged people!"

"Exactly, Tsuzuki and Anna would be perfect for each other! They could fix their damage with love. We won't even have to try at all with hooking them up. They can already connect with each other. We just need to get them to see that."

The loli demon looked at her, "You promise?"

Emiko gently took her hand smiling. "Of course, I do!"

Hotaru thought about the pitched scheme. Her girlfriend waited; Emiko needed her lover on this latest plan.

Come on, the butch demon thought, Please say yes! Please say yes!

Hotaru finally turned to her, "Okay, how do we get them to see their feelings for each other?"

Emiko grinned at her wickedly, "By power of suggestion, my sexy friend!" Hotaru grinned in mischief. Her girlfriend nodded at her.

"See? You're loving my brilliant plan already!"

"Mmm-hm!"

Emiko lightly kissed Hotaru on the nose. "We start tomorrow!" she announced in a whisper.

"Roger!" Hotaru replied. They shared one more kiss before falling asleep in each other's arms.

Deleted User: This is a very clever story in the style of 19th century (and turn of the century) Gothic writing, very reminiscent of Stevenson's The Body Snatchers or even of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (less so of Frankenstein itself, since the author is more minimalist than Shelley's florid, Romantic rhetoric). ...
