I'm Sorry

Hiyori's POV

"Wait for me!" I shout at the calamity god.

"Well come on already, I don't have all day!" says Yato. Yukine looks at him, "Yes you do."

"Shut up Yukine!" Yato yells as he smacks Yukine on the back of the head. I laugh, and I run to go meet them.

I finally catch up to them, and Yato looks at me and asks, "You know you fell out of your body again right?" I quickly look behind me, and I see my body laying in the middle of the sidewalk. I sigh, and I walk over to it. I can't enter back into it right now, so I ask Yato to put my body on a nearby park bench.

Yato groans, but he does what I ask him. I smile, and we all run to our destination even though I have no idea where we are going.

When we finally arrive, I see that Yato has dragged us to some kind of elementary school.

"I received a call from someone at this school, so we better go investigate." Yato states.

We all nod, and we run in search of the person in need. Yato checks the classrooms, Yukine checks the cafeteria, and I check the schoolyard.

I run out to the schoolyard, and I find a little boy crying on a nearby bench. I run over to him, and I try to see what's a matter. However, the boy cannot see me, so I call for Yato. Yato hears me, and runs over as well.

"Hello Yato the delivery god at your service!" he shouts.

The little boy looks up startled, because he just realized Yato's sudden presence. Yato gets down on one knee and asks, "What's wrong?"

The little boy looks down and says, "My kite got stuck in a tree..."

Yato looks up into the tree, and sees a small little blue kite hanging from one of the branches. I complain, we ran all the way here to get a kite out of a tree.

Yato smiles and says, "I'll get it for you, but it's going to cost ya."

The boy looks like he's going to start crying again, "How much?"

Yato smiles and shouts, "5 yen!"

The boy digs into his pockets, and pulls out a small 5 yen coin.

Yato tosses the coin into the air, catches it and says, "May our fates intertwine."

After this is done, Yato climbs up the tree, and reaches for the little boy's kite. Yukine and I sit back and watch Yato struggle to get a good grip on the kite. He looks down at us and shouts, "You know, you could actually try to help me!"

Yukine smirks, "Yeah, but this is much more fun."

After another 10 minutes, Yato finally retrieves the kite, and hands it to the boy. The boy quickly takes the kite with a smile, and thanks Yato. Yato rubs the boy's head, and says, "Next time don't fly your kite so close to the tree."

The boy smiles, "Okay~ Mr. Yato!" and quickly runs off to join a group of school friends.

Yato soon joins us, and we all leave together to go hang out at Ms. Kofuku's house.

"Hello! We're back!" Yato shouts as he enters the house.

"Aww Yatty's back, come and eat dinner with us!" Kofuku's voice is heard from in the house.

Yukine and I walk in, and we all gather around the table to enjoy a lovely meal with our friends.

Kofuku looks at me and asks, "Where is your body Hiyori?"

I quickly look around me, and groan "I left it at the park."

Yato looks at me seriously, "You really shouldn't make that a habit Hiyori."

"Well, you never fulfilled my wish yet now did you!" I shout.

Yato gets up, "Don't go putting this on me!"

I get up as well, "It's your fault that I can't managed to stay in my own body!"

Yukine just continues to sit between us, and completely ignore us. He continues to enjoy his ramen. I suddenly feel a sharp pain in my lower abdomen, and I fall to the floor.

Everyone in the room freezes, and soon runs over to me. Yato lays me on his lap, and asks "What's wrong!"

I reach down and grab my tail, and I notice that it's starting to fade. Yato notices this as well, and quickly calls "Sekki!" and runs out the door with Yukine in his hands.

I continue lying on the floor in absolute pain, but soon I feel myself being pulled back to my body. Kofuku begins to speak to me, but before I even know it, I'm back in my own body. I open my eyes, and I'm face to face with a sweaty man, who is currently raping me.

I cry out, but he punches me in the head. I fall into a world of unconsciousness.


Yato's POV

Where is it!

I run down the street where Hiyori's body is supposed to be located. I run over to the park bench where I originally put the body, but it's no longer there. She is no longer there.

"Where is she Yato!" Yukine says.

"I don't know!" I say as I scouter the whole park in search of the precious body. Soon I see a man appear from a nearby alleyway, and I eye him suspiciously. He is surrounded by Akayshi, and he smells like Hiyori!

I ignore him for now, and I run down the alley he just appeared from. I run to the end, and I find her.

Her school uniform is in shreds, her head has a deep gash in it and is gushing blood, and I don't want to describe what actually occurred.

I run to her, and gather her into my hands. I quickly carry her to a nearby hospital, and soon Hiyori is whisked away from my arms, and into the arms of a stranger.

I want to cry, no I want to die right now. She...she will never forgive me for this. I don't even think I can forgive myself.

OpheliaJones: This story took a different kind of spin on the "normal girl lives with definitely not normal guy" plot. The plot points of Frey's father, Liam's family, and Frey's view of Liam's world were good to read. She did not fall in love with him in the first couple weeks. Their lives were not smooth in ...

Jennifer Kane Martin: I am a high school teacher, and the dialogue and inner thoughts are PERFECT. However, the lack of capitalization, punctuation, and the typos are distracting. Don't let these get in the way of a potentially good story.

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.

Althea Kerr: This is a tale that is all too familiar to South African readers having lived through a war era on our borders and beyond. It is obviously autobiographical as the mind under duress is so detailed and real. It has fantastic suspense if a bit disjointed - perhaps that is the fear and loneliness com...

Alex Rushmer: This was not what I expected, but I enjoyed it a lot Malfoy was always one of the characters that I liked a lot, so I like that a lot of this happens between him and Colette. I read the first couple chapters, and I enjoyed your writing style and am excited to see where you take this story. My com...

christylynnr5: This was beyond amazing! I loved this book. The characters seemed so real. It was amazing how the author let Zak and Kaylees personalities slowly change.

Marijana1: The melancholy present throughout this story has the power to influence and etch into the minds of the readers, to stay there and refuse to leave even after they have finished reading the story.

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.
