Ringo-senpai gave "her" class an assignment. "Class you have another song to make and turned in two days." The bell rang for which Haruka, Tomochika, Ittoki, Syo and Natsuki made a bento and started eating. " I am so happy!" yelled Haruka.
Tomochika and Ittoki both asked, " Why are you so happy?" Hijirikawa sat right by Haruka on the other side. "Aren't you still learning the notes and composing music?" Haruka blushed. "Yes, but I want my dream to come true." Everyone was sleeping, but Haruka got out her paper and pencils. She sat there trying to write down the beat to the song she had in mind. A little black cat sat on her desk right beside her. The cat meowed. " Oh Kuppuru... I don't know what to do...'' That morning, Haruka went walking outside to clear her head. She sat on the bench by a tree. Ittoki-kun walked on over to Haruka. " Ittoki-kun do you know where Hijirikawa is?"
" I think he is in his room." Haruka ran to his room, when she got there, she knocked on the door. "Hijirikawa-san are you in there?" Haruka opened the door and walked in. "Hello my little lamb!" said Ren. "Ren-
kun you're Hijirikawa's roomate?" "Yep!"
Haruka apologized to the guys for barging in. "Why I came is because I need Hijirikawa's help!" She walks on over to him. " Can you help me. I need help with the keys on the piano I do have have the melody and beat though..." Hijirikawa's pauses. " I can't."
Haruka nods and leaves. She heads on over to the classroom, and sits at the piano's chair.
Haruka sighs and starts playing. Ittoki hears a piano playing and enters the classroom. Haruka stops and looks up to see Ittoki standing there. "Sorry I heard a piano playing- what song was that?" he asked. "Back when I was a little girl and I lived in the countryside with my grandmother, she sang me a song when I went to bed to help me to fall asleep." Ittoki-kun walked over to her. Haruka sighed, closed her eyes, and started playing and singing. "Dango dango dango dango dango dango the big dumpling family..." She stopped playing.
Tomochika, Syo, Ren, and Hijirikawa entered the classroom. Ittoki and Haruka looked up. "Don't stop!" said Syo. " My little lamb, you played wonderfully!" smiled Ren. "You have indeed,
improved." said Hijirikawa. Haruka started to cry.
Tomochika reached her hand out. "Haruka-chan are you okay?" she shook her head.
" Tomo-chan, Hijirikawa-san, Jinguji-san, Syo-kun, Shinomiya-san, Ichinose-san, thank-you,
..thank you for believing in me!'' That night, Haruka couldn't sleep. She got out of bed, and started writing the notes for the guys next piece. There was a quiet meow. "Kuppuru!" Haruka whispered. The cat jumped off the desk, and ran away. "Kuppuru wait!"
Haruka yelled. Haruka took off. " Haruka where are you going?!" Tomochika asked.
The cat stopped where she first met Tokiya, or should I say Hayato-sama. All of a sudden,
tiny orbs of light which looked like fireflies, was forming around the cat. To Haruka's suprise,
Kuppuru transformed to a man. " Cecil-san!" He smiled. In Haruka's room, Tomochika looked out the window and saw Haruka talking to the man. " Have you seen Kuppuru. He's my little cat..."
Haruka explained. " Does he have green eyes, and have soft black fur?" Haruka stared into his eyes. "Kup..
puru...?" He nodded. Haruka was shocked. She remembered all the times she saw Kuppuru, it was Cecil.
Tomochika ran out to see where Haruka was in the middle of the night. "Haruka..
Haruka!" Tomochika yelled. "Your friend is looking for you.. bye Haruka." Haruka looked over at the cat, and the cat ran away. "Haruka-chan who are you look at?" Haruka shook her head.
They walked back. The next morning, Haruka wrote notes to the guys. After class, they checked their lockers. "Natsuki did you get a letter from Haruka-chan too?" "Yeah!" Natsuki and Syo met up with the rest of the guys. "Get letters from Nanami?" asked Ittoki. " I wonder what little lamb wants?" as Ren ponders. " Probably another group number she wants all of us to do."
When they get to the room, they are suprised to find Haruka already there. "Thanks for being here. I have a copy for each of you. I thought we all could work on the lyrics..."
"Haruka-chan..let's do our best!" said Ittoki. "Haruka, what part of the song do we each sing?"
asked Syo confused. They all looked at the sheet. " Ittoki you sing first, then Syo sings. The next part Shinomiya-san sings this verse. Ittoki-kun comes back and sings this line. After he finishes his line, you all sing. "Hello, Hello." Tokiya was confused. " Are you spending time with each of us, or what?" Haruka shook her head. She handed six highlighters, one to each of them. When they got done highlighting..
" That's it for today..." Haruka said. "Haruka-chan each one of us wants to start practicing!"
Ittoki explained. Haruka was watching them, and as they got done, she fell backwards. "Haruka-chan how was that?" Ittoki asked. "Are you okay little lamb?" Ren asked.
"That's not her name!" yelled Hijirikawa-san. " Do you think she's okay?" Natuski and Syo questioning themselves. "Haruka..?" Syo said getting closer to her face. "That was.. perfect.
So when is Hayato-sama's next concert? Grandma it's hot outside...?" Haruka said in a daze.
A little black cat entered th room, and licked her face. " Meow!" Haruka shook her head and opened her eyes. She looked at everyone. "Shinomiya-san, Hijirikawa-san,
Jinguji-san, Syo-kun, Ittoki-kun..thank you for bringing Kuppuru back!" smiled Haruka.
The little black cat jumped out of her arms. All of a sudden, there was a gentle and pure singing throughout the room. Haruka got up and closed her eyes. She was singing with the sound that was spreading throughout the room. "What's this song?" There was a man standing in the rooom. "Cecil-san!" Haruka smiled.
She ran over and hugged him. "When did you get here?!" Cecil held her and whispered, " You can keep me!" "Eh?!" Haruka passed out again. Cecil caught her in his arms and carried her.
He ran out of the room, and bumped into Ringo-sensai. "Please where is the medical office?" Cecil asked in a hurry. He ran till he found a bed, and set her down in the bed. Starish came running in. Cecil transformed back into Kuppuru, and sat down on the window sill.
Ringo walked by and told the guys to get back to her class. Later Haruka stepped out the window, and walked to the lake, and started singing. "Ringo-sensai we need to use the bathroom." "All of you... well I guess if you need to go, you need to go..." she sighed. "Fine be back in five minutes!" she ordered. They all ran out the classroom, and to the beautiful voice. " Yesterday we stood together..." They stopped and saw Haruka singing with all her heart, not caring if anyone heard her. " If the world goes bright from a burst of light, in a hearbeat..flashed a memory..
hoping eventually.. you'll remember me. Even though your thoughts forget the times we share..
search within your heart, and you'll find..me..there!" Haruka sighed and heard a branch snap.
"Hmm?" she turned around. "That was a beautiful..." smiled Natsuki. Haruka turned back toward the lake. "When my mom and dad met...well my mom was about 17, my dad was 18.
Before they had me of course, my dad was getting ready to go overseas for a business trip, they didn't want to have a daughter not knowing what their father looked like. My dad went on the trip for three months. Before he left to go in the plane, my sang that song to him. The when I went to go live with my grandma, she told me if I was ever sad, to sing this song..." Ittoki took a step forward and reaching his hand out. " Haruka..." said Ittoki concerned.
Haruka walked toward the guys and left with them. Cecil came out behind the trees. " I love you Haruka! I will always be there for you.. watching over you." he thought. "You're one special girl!"
Everyone smiled on their way back to the classroom
