A Drastic Change (Part I, Chapter 4)


Chapter 4

“Oi Sasshi!”
“What Miichan?”
“You’re late! Where’s Reina? You both were supposed to be here an hour ago. I’m tired of waiting!”
“Hey! I had my reasons for being late, because…”
“Gomen!” Reina came running down carrying a crepe in her mouth.
“Where have you been?” asked still pissed Miichan.
“I was hungry so I stopped to get a snack.” Reina said.
“For a whole hour?” Miichan said.
“The line was long!” pouted innocently the fashionable girl.
“Forget it, let’s just get moving.” shook her head Sasshi.

The three girls started walking down the street minding their own business. But then Sasshi noticed they were being followed by some unwanted guests. Miichan and Reina also figured it out and decided it was time to ditch the followers. They made a right turn into an alleyway so no one could see them. Then when they reached a dead end, they turned around to see a group of guys. They looked older and scary but neither one of them was afraid.
“How about you ladies come with us? How about it? We’ll have a little fun.” The guy grabbed his crotch indicating what he meant.
The three looked at each other and smiled. Then Miichan walked over and leaned in close to him.
“You wish~” Then in a flash she kicked him right where it counts making the other guys wince at their fallen comrade. Little did they know, the girls they were messing with were from a popular Yankee school and were very good at fighting. They had no idea they were in one heck of a fight.“Get them!”
The guys charged and the girls just waited for them to attack. One tried to attack Reina but she quickly avoided the punch and punched the guy in the stomach sending him doubling over in pain. Then she hammered his head with an elbow smash. As one went down another came but Reina was expecting them to play dirty. She quickly moved out of the way and watched the guy punch one of his own buddies.
Meanwhile Miichan was having a blast. She punched one guy in the nose making it gush like a fountain and then she gave him a low kick sending him flying into the trash pile. Then she ducked as two guys swung their fists above her head and then quickly grabbed them and flipped them over. She nailed one of them in the chest and the other in the face. To finish it off, she hit another guy right in the jewels. Then she did a back-flip to avoid the swinging of the bat and she sent a spinning kick afterwards. The guy who’s spun the bat was too surprised from seeing the back-flip that he didn’t even see a kick was directed to him.
“Yosh, that’s the fourth one today!”

Sasshi laughed at Miichan’s comment as she smashed one guy’s head into the wall and took out another with one punch to the face. There were only five guys left, one of them being the leader. And suddenly the four pulled out knives pointed right at the girls.
“Hey, it’s not fair!” Miichan said.
“Relax, we can handle them.” smiled Sasshi.
“Shut up and let’s fight!” shouted playfully fashionable girl.
The four came charging at them with their knives waiting. Two of them went after Miichan while the other two went after Reina and Sasshi. Reina had no problem disarming her guy when all she had to do was make him trip and fall over. Sasshi easily snatched the blade out of her guy’s hand and threw it to the side. Then like a true Yankee she finished him with two punches to the stomach and one in the chest.

Miichan however was having a little difficulty. The two were striking randomly and Miichan was barely able to dodge. At one point one of the guys slashed a tear in her jacket.
“Hey, no one messes with our school uniforms!” Miichan whacked the blades out of their hands and then grabbed both of their heads and slammed them together. When she let go, their bodies dropped like logs. “Knock out!”
“Nice one Miichan!” Reina said.

There was just the leader left. He tried to run away but Sasshi easily caught up with him. She made him kneel down, grabbed his right arm and put it behind him, preventing him from moving.
“Please let me go.” He begged.
“You shouldn’t have messed with stronger than you.” said Miichan while approaching him. When she was in front of him, something caught his attention. It was a red pin with a white flower and the initials MJ drawn on it. His eyes widened, because he knew this insignia.
“Please don’t hurt me. I didn’t know you were…” He couldn’t finish his sentence because Miichan put her hand on his mouth.
“It’s too late, we are pretty upset now.” said Miichan before making a sign to Reina to finish him. The guy was completely scared. Then Reina violently hit his face with her knee.
“We can go now.” said Sasshi.
“Yeah, let’s go. And by the way, I won.” declared Miichan.”

“You were so cool!” exclaimed Reina and then frowned. “I lost my crepe in the middle of the fight…”
“And that reminds me… Sasshi, why were you late?!” yelled Miichan.
“Our class had to go and have a check up… And you know our school’s nurse…” she shivered, but then grinned widely. “I made sure he won’t be touching anyone for at least a week.”
“Yay! Go Sasshi!” smiled Reina.
“Mhm… I forgive you then… While I was waiting for you, I checked my twitter and Tomomi updated a blog!! Ah, yappari Yamamoto sisters are so cute together!!” squealed she and jumped around for a minute.
“Now you’re so not cool…” teased Sasshi and then her face turned into a sparkling one. “Nee, Reina, tell me more about Kuumin, please!!!”
“You’re whining too much… I cannot understand how can you be heels over someone you never saw… Ah, I should ask my sister for a meeting with Gaki-san…”
“Yap, we lost her…” stated Miichan, who knew too well about Reina’s obsession over Niigaki Risa, an assistant at Shibuya Fashion Line.

Sasshi’s face suddenly became unreadable. “Talking about twitter, I read the latest news… It seems there was a huge murder not far away from our town, some mafia gang was killed off…”
“Yeah, I read about it too…” sighed the bubbly yankee. “By the way, on the lighter note… Have you heard the latest news, while being at school?”
“About the transfer student?” asked the hetare girl.
“Un. I heard her father was a priest…”
“Say what?! EH?!”
“That’s not all… People said she’s very cute and pretty… And innocent, on top of that…”
“Poor girl… Does she know our school is not for sweet girls..?”
“Well, it’s not our problem, is it?” asked Miichan.
“No, it’s not… Anyway, we should take Reina home, she’s still in her Niigaki-land…”

When Reina was brought home, she snapped out of her thoughts, as she saw her sister’s car in a driveway. She left her friends behind and ran inside, smiling widely.
“Neechan! Tadaima~!” shouted she and jumped on her sister full force, making them both fall on the sofa.
“Reina-chan… Okaeri. You should have just hugged me normally, you know. My dress will be crinkled..”
“Oh, oneechan, who’s more important? Me or your dress?”
“Mhm… Definitely the dress.” teased the older one. “Now get up and make me dinner, as I am really hungry.”
“Mou~” pouted the yankee girl, yet still skipped to the kitchen.
“You know, I have good news to you, fangirl. Your favorite model agreed to appear on my fashion show.”
“She what?!” a happy squeal could be heard. “Yatta!!!!! Ogura Haruna-san is finally not just unreachable dream!! I can meet her, yay!!!”
“Don’t forget to cook, Reina-chan.”
“Un un.” she kept silent for awhile. “Ano, is Takamina-san coming tonight?”
“Even though she’s my girlfriend, she’s not supposed to come here every night, now is she?”
“Iie… Ah, so happy~! But how? You said she declined.”

Tomochin came to the kitchen and sat on the chair.
“I want to know the real reasons too, but I have my own opinion, no, more like guesses about it. But as I thought, you haven’t read it in the newspapers. Why?”
“I went to school, and after school we got into a fight. But of course we beat them.” proudly stated the younger Itano. “What should I wear, neechan? I want to look good, when Ogura-san signs for me.”
“I think you’re too happy, Reina-chan. Are you forgetting your dear Gaki-san?” asked in a teasing manner the fashion queen.
“N..no… W…why do you ask?” stuttered cat girl and continued cooking, concentrating more than needed.
“Mhm, just curious, that’s all. She was asking about you, you know…” smirked designer and waited.
“Really?!” excited Reina turned around at her sister, then suddenly lifted her chin and lowered her voice, yet the sparkles in her eyes stayed unmoved. “So what?.. What she wanted?..”
“You can hide your feelings from anyone but me. I know you like her a lot. She asked if you’re going to attend, I said yes. She was happy.”
The yankee girl turned away from her sister, continuing with the dinner.
“Um… So, what about you and Takamina?”
“I love her, she loves me, end of story. We’re happy together.” smiled warmly Tomomi. “Ah, smells good, hurry!” she patted her sister’s shoulder and went to make a call to her girlfriend.

After dinner both sisters went to take a bath, then to their beds. One was thinking about a certain midget before falling asleep, another was too preoccupied thinking about a certain assistant to fall asleep. But eventually she gave in and drowned in her dreams, full off fluffy kittens. Do all yankees dream like that?..
