Making a new friend, Amahas reunited
Rihoko got dressed after she felt better. "Finally... I'm never doing that again..." she said. "Unless i feel like it" she then thought.
She went back out to the kitchen. "So, now that you came.. you want anything to eat, Tozawa...?" She asked him in a nice way. "Nah, I'm good for now." he said. Rihoko smiled." Okay..." she said softly. Soon Tozawa left. Rihoko stayed behind and made herself something to eat. She looked at the picture of her and Masane that was next to the fridge. "Mommy..." she said softly and sadly. "I hope i get to see you again." she said. She looked at the table and seen a flashback of her and Masane eating together. Rihoko sighed at that and finished cooking her food. She sat at the table in the chair she sat at. Rihoko looked over and seen a flashback of Masane eating and complimenting on her cooking. Rihoko smiled and gently teared up. "Thank you..." she whispered softly even though she was alone. Rihoko dried her tears and ate her food. She went out and left. When she got down, she saw everyone. "Hi everyone..." she said with a soft smile. "Hey, kid. How ya feeling...?" Mariko asked. "I'm doing fine now." Rihoko said with a gentle smile. "Well, i better get ready..." she said with a gentle smile as she went back to get her backpack. "Oh right. First day of middle school. Cant believe how much she's grown after 6 years." Mariko said as she watched Rihoko walk out to the bus. "Bye..!" Rihoko waved to them. "Bye, Rihoko!" Mr. Choa called out to her. Rihoko smiled and got on the bus. The bus doors closed behind her. In the beginning of the 5th period as Rihoko was getting her books. She heard running she saw a teenage girl run out fast as some kids ran after her. "YOUR DEAD, TSUZUKI!!!!" one of them yelled. She let out a smirk and flipped on top of the lockers. "Wow...! I wish i was that skilled!" Rihoko said. "Dammit, Tsuzuki! You give that $20 back!" he yelled. "Sure thing!" she said and took out the twenty dollar bill. She ripped it to shreds and smirked. "Oh that's it! Your gonna get sent to Hell!" He yelled. "Go ahead! Hell'll be glad to have you as well, dumbass!" she layed on top of the lockers with a smirk. But her leg got grabbed. "Hey! Let go, bastard!!" She yelled. he threw her to the floor. She slowly got up. But he stopped on her back. She went down to the floor again. Rihoko watched as more came out and kicked her in the face. "Hey!" Rihoko yelled. "Leave her alone!" She yelled as she went over to them. The girl bled a lot from her forehead. "Why are you doing this!? That was her money!! I watched you steal it from her this morning!!" She yelled. "So your, gossip girl.." he smirked and got closer to her. Rihoko backed up. "Better not come near me! You should know who my mom is!!" Rihoko yelled. "Oh yeah? Who is she...? We can beat her in five different styles..." another said. Rihoko smiled devilishly like Masane. "I'll show you what she looks like..." she said as she took a picture out of her mother in WitchBlade form. They boys looked at the picture and screamed. "IT'S THAT X-CON!!!" They yelled and ran away. Rihoko put the picture back and helped the girl up. "Thanks..." she said. " No problem. I'm Rihoko..." She said with a smile. "Wow, nice to meet you, I'm Domenica." she said to Rihoko. "You should come over." Rihoko said. "Um, sure." Domenica said. " now, I got to go to gym." Domenica said. Wow! I got gym too!" Rihoko said with a smile. "Let's go together!" Rihoko said to Domenica. she nodded. "Okay. Wanna be BFFs...?" Domenica asked. "Okay!" She said as she went with Domenica to gym. Later after school, Rihoko seen Tozawa pull up. "Hey Tozawa!" Rihoko said with a smile. "Hey, Rihoko, I'm picking you up today." he said. Domenica ran up behind. "Rihoko! wait up!" she said. "Hey Domenica!" Rihoko said. "Tozawa, i want you to meet my new friend!" She said happily. " hey, what's up..?" Tozawa said. "Domenica's coming over a for a bit." Rihoko said." sounds nice." Tozawa said. "Let's go." he said. Domenica got in the back as Rihoko got in the front. Tozawa drove off. Soon, they got to Mariko's. "Hey everyone! I'm back!" Rihoko said happily. "Hey, Rihoko! Who's your friend...?" Mr. Choa asked. "I'm Domenica. We met at school." Domenica said. Mr. Choa smiled. "Nice to meet ya!" he said. Soon after Rihoko and Domenica got to know each other more, it was time for Domenica to go home. "It was nice to meet you!" Rihoko said with a smile. Domenica smiled and left. Rihoko went and got ready for bed. But she looked out the window and saw a bright golden light. "I've seen that light before!" as she remembered her mom. She rushed out fast and followed it. they all seen it. "Hey kid! where are you going?!" Mariko called after her. "Following a golden light!!" Rihoko yelled from outside. Tozawa seen that. "I'll go after her!" Tozawa said and went to is car. Rihoko followed the light more and came to see it ending at the Sakuragaoka park. Rihoko stopped running and walked over to the light. She seen the light vanish and a body was left. She watched as the body slowly got up. But Rihoko recognized the clothing. "Mommy...?" she asked. The body's head turned to see Rihoko. "Riko!" The woman said happily. "Mommy!!" Rihoko cried happily and hugged Masane. She hugged Masane tightly not letting go. "Wow Riko. You've grown a lot..." Masane said. "I know, I'm 12 now." she said to Masane with tear filled eyes. But Rihoko heard someone run over to them. "Rihoko!" Tozawa called but stopped as he saw Masane. "Melony...?" he asked. Masane looked up and nodded. "Hello, Tozawa." she said. Rihoko smiled but yawned cutely. "Wow, looks like someone's tired.." Masane said." Masane smiled and picked up Rihoko. "Now, let's head back..." Tozawa said. "Back..? Back where...?" Masane asked. "Mariko's..." he said. "But i thought Mariko's building was being torn down..." Masane said. "It was but, Takayama saved the building..." he said. "That's nice to hear." Masane said and stood up. She followed Tozawa to his car while carrying Rihoko. Tozawa drove them back to Mariko's. Masane went to they're room so that she can surprise everyone in the morning. she layed Rihoko in bed and layed next to her. "Goodnight... my little princess.." Masane said before she fell asleep.
