Fuyuki

Halo Seven: Fuyuki:

Ringo stepped out of her house and took in a deep breath. She got the phone call just hours before.

"Hello?" she asked over her cell phone.

"Ringo-chan!" a Scottish accent filled her ear. The girl sat up in her bed.

"Junko-sensei?" she asked. "Is that you?"

"Of course it is," she replied. "Who else would have your number?"

"Oh, right," the girl said. "What is it?"

"I have a little gift for you," the nurse told her.

"What?"

"I'll let you see your brother today."

Ringo's eyes grew big with surprise. "You really mean it?"

"Of course, why would I lie to you? You have a pen and paper beside you?"

"I do!" Ringo chirped. "Hang on!" After she got the address, Ringo got up, got dressed, and headed out the door.

"You know this is a trap, right?" Michiko asked when she greeted Ringo at the hospital. The girl frowned at her when she made it to the doors.

"You never give up, do you?" she asked. Michiko folded her arms across her chest.

"Why now?" she asked. "Don't you find it a little bit strange? Why would she let you see Fuyuki after all of this time?"

"I don't know," Ringo said. "Maybe she's being nice." The "younger" girl tried not to laugh.

"Her being nice?" she asked. "That's a good one!" Her face became serious as another thought entered her mind. "Tell me you didn't invite them over," she said.

"Of course I did," Ringo said. "I want them to meet my little brother." Michiko's heart sank.

"Don't!" she pleaded. "They do not need to go through this all over again!"

"I've heard enough from you!" Ringo screamed. She unclipped her light blue flower hair pins from her hair and pushed Michiko against a well with them. Blue light ribbons appeared and tightened around the "younger" girl's wrists and ankles. She tried to move, but found herself stuck to the brick wall.

"What the-?! What the hell did you do to me?!" Michiko snapped. Ringo gave her a little smirk.

"Surprised at what I can do?" she asked. "It's just a little technique I picked up from you long ago."

"Get me down from here!" she yelled.

"I will, after I see my brother," the freshman said as she turned to the glass doors. She paused when she pushed them open a crack and glanced out of the corner of her eye at her trapped prey. "Oh yeah, don't bother screaming out," Ringo added. "No one will see or hear you. So, just sit tight for me, will you? Goodbye." Michiko glared at her as she walked into the hospital.

Moments later, Anri, Noriko, and Chiharu showed up at the hospital as planned.
