The Unbroken Promise to Find Family

Romance

Chapter 1

"Yukio, I found her! Come over here! She looks terrible," Rin yelled out.

Yukio darted quickly through the snow and slowly walked up to the girl, lying motionless in the snow. He squatted down and pressed the back of his hand against her cheek.

"She's still a little warm, but we need to hurry and get her inside. If she stays out here any longer she'll freeze. Rin, think you could carry her," Yukio asked, glancing towards his brother.

"Yeah and let's hurry. I feel like my fingers are gonna break off," Rin said he lifted the girl from the snow.

"I'm glad we found her. I was starting to think that some of the citizens were lying about seeing her walk out here," Yukio said as he began leading the way back to the city.

"Hey Yukio, when we were talking to some of the citizens, they said she was looking for someone... Who do you think she was looking for," Rin asked as he followed his brother.

"I don't know, Rin. Maybe she'll tell us when she wakes up, but lets not question her too much about that. It may be too personal," Yukio answered as he trudged through the snow.

Rin looked at the girl and noticed her stirring slightly. Her eyes opened and she stared up at Rin, her eyes drooped a bit. Rin smiled down at her.

"Don't worry, you're safe now," Rin whispered with a warm smile.

Time skip

Rin finished tucking the girl into one of the infirmary beds while Yukio poured hot water over a small rag. He carefully placed the folded rag on her forehead to help warm her up.

The girl mumbled and stirred in her sleep. Rin came closer to the side of the bed and watched with Yukio as the she slowly opened her eyes. She groaned faintly and slowly looked around the room.

"W-who are you? Where am I," the girl mumbled.

"My name is Yukio and this is my brother, Rin. We found you out in the snow outside of town. Some of the townspeople said you were outside when we were about to shut the gates. Right now, you're in the infirmary of True Cross Academy."

"Oh... I remember, now. I was looking for them, again," the girl whispered weakly.

"Who were you looking for," Rin asked curiously, leaning in to hear her.

"Rin! That may be personal... Although, I would like to know you name," Yukio said softly, yanking Rin back.

Rin shot a glare at Yukio before looking back at the pale girl who was staring intently at the sheets.

"My name is Renge. I can answer his question, but not with names... All I can say is that I'm looking for my parents," Renge whispered weakly.

"Your parents," Rin breathed.

"Yeah... I've been searching... For them... For six years," Renge answered slowly.

Rin and Yukio looked at each other as they understood that if they questioned her anymore, she would pass out.

"Well, Renge, we need to let you rest. Don't worry about anything, and just sleep. We will talk more when you are feeling better, alright," Yukio said as he reheated Renge's rag.

She nodded slightly, her eyes already shut. Rin and Yukio made their way to the door. Yukio gave a quick glance back at her as she began to sleep peacefully. Yukio shut the door, quietly, behind him and looked back at his brother.

"I'm worried about her," Rin said as he looked back at the door.

"Yeah, I hope I can get Shiemi to stay with her for the night," Yukio said as he pulled out his phone.

"Alright, well I'm gonna head back to the room. I'm tired, myself," Rin said with a yawn.

Time skip

Rin sighed as he shut the bathroom door. He made his way back to their room, still thinking about this mysterious girl who was searching for parents.

He walked in and shut the door behind him, plopping down on his bed. Kuro quickly hopped on to his lap and curled up. Rin stared intently out the window, watching the snow fall as he began thinking about Shiro. Sure, he never met his mother but at least he had Shiro to take care of him and his brother.

It was scary to think that this frail girl had to walk through the freezing snow just to search for her parents. By the way she had looked, she hadn't eaten in a few days. She probably hadn't had shelter in a while, either.

The door opened again to a tired Yukio. He shut the door and made his way to his dresser. He dug around in his drawer for his pajamas and left the room to change.

"What's wrong, Rin," Kuro asked, nudging his chin.

"I was just thinking about dad," Rin said, petting Kuro on the head.

Kuro placed his forehead against Rin's and shut his eyes.

"I miss him too, Rin," he said with a small yawn.

"Ready for bed," Rin said after a few seconds of silence.

Kuro nodded as he let Rin settle under the blanket. Rin rolled over, letting Kuro curl up in his back.

Eventually Yukio returned and headed to bed, himself. Leaving the room silent and dark.
