Key Two: Meeting:

-One Year Earlier-

I wandered around the city out of boredom. I was really hungry at the time and needed a little money. My eyes scanned the busy street in front of me. I frowned as they walked by. Wealth made me want to vomit. The rich don't care about their fellow man. They only care about their own money. Even after the holy war, nothing has changed. I sneered at the fancy suits passing me by. My growling stomach made my anger even worse. I haven't had anything to eat in three days. It's time to go look for more food. I pushed myself to my feet and began walking.

My weakness got the better of my half-way out of the city. My knees gave as I struggled to keep walking. The pains in my stomach grew and turned. I sank down into a ball, panting. I… can't go… on… Everything sank to black around me.

"Are you alright?" I heard above my head moments later. I slowly fluttered my eyes open.

"Mama?" I asked. I drew my head upwards to see this cute girl looking at me. I believed it was a girl; I couldn't fully see through my blurred, watery vision. A hand reached forward and touched me on the forehead.

"Oh my god!" she gasped. "You are burning up! Come, sit down!" My body ended up dragged and sat down on grass. Cool water flowed into my open mouth. The sensation drove me to sit up straight in a flash. I looked around with big eyes. The girl sitting next to me gave me a strange look.

"Are you already now?" she asked. Before I could speak, my stomach growled again. An unease chuckle came out of my mouth. The girl narrowed her eyes at me.

"I suppose you're hungry too?" she asked. I nodded my head up and down. My savior sighed aloud.

"Alright, hold on," she said. She reached into her backpack and pulled out what I believed was wrapped up cheesy bread. I snatched it out of her hand and ate up before she could say another word.

"Excuse you!" she demanded with her hands on her hips. I didn't listen as I ate up every last crumble.

"Whew! Thank you so much!" I said aloud. "I thought I was going to die back there." When I turned my head, I got hit by the thunderbolt. This girl had the cutest round face I had ever seen in my life. Her light brown bangs made it look much smaller. The long light brown ponytails on the sides did the same thing with her plump cheeks. Her small, brown eyes, pouting lips, and slender nose made my heart race.

"Strike!" I shouted at the top of my lungs. This cute girl tilted her head, giving me another odd look.

"You are too weird," she told me.
