                                                                                    Prologue:

"Aset….?" Fifteen year old Tanaka Kawasawa opened the door to his sibling's room slowly; his flame color eyes scanned the dark room, seemingly glowing. He brushed his golden brown from his eyes then clicked on the light and looked around once more; his gaze fell upon a big heap in the corner covered by blankets. Sighing, he kneeled beside it and lifted a blanket.

"Bity, Come on out bity, you'll suffocate yourself under all this."

The heap shuffle and a head popped out, thirteen year old Asetbity Kawasawa looked at her brother sadly.

 "That's what I was aiming for" she mumbled about to go back under before Tanaka grabbed her head.

 "And leave me with Ryoutea, no way" he teased lightly with a slight smile, Asetbity lifted her eyes towards her brother who frowned, all the fire, all the light that normally swirled in her brown depths.

...was gone.

 "Bity, what'd mom do this time?"

Aset shook her head, her purple hair whipping in her face. "Nothing, but Ryoutea was in there today. He was screaming."

Tanaka's eye flashed "Is he still in there?"

Aset nodded then climbed into her brother's lap hugging him "We're all gonna be livin in this hell forever aren't we."

It was a rhetorical question but he answered anyway.

"No."

                                                            ******************

"Tanaka!"

Tanaka stood rooted to the ground; his eyes remained blank as he watched his sister be dragged into the large room of their parents. His mother looked at him with a smirk.

"Good boy" she mouthed.

 Tanaka directed his eyes away from her; Their mother was beautiful there was no denying it, her silver-brownish hair fell angelically around her smooth and pale heart shape face, her figure was slim and strong, with every step, you could feel the power radiating off her. But looks weren't everything. Aset grabbed at air, her eye squinted, and emotions ran through her eyes

Despise.

Betrayal.

Hurt.

"Tanaka, you bastard!!"

The door slammed before him, Tanaka's shoulders shook and fist clenched but he slowly returned to his room. Screams erupted from the room neighboring his, his eyes remained shadowed and face blank of emotion. Small emotions flickered in his eyes, escaping his blank features.

Hope.

Worry.

Love.

Pain.

Then the screams silenced, the cries died out, the house stilled. The door to his room was pushed open; Tanaka looked up his eyes dull. Fifteen year old, Ryoutea, looked at his younger brother. A sling and bandages covered his arms and an eye patch covered his purple eye.

"It's not over" he spoke softly, sitting down on his bed, crossing his ankles.

Tanaka narrowed his eyes and the words bitterly came from his mouth "It's never over."

                                                            *********************

Asetbity opened her eyes slowly, adjusting to the dim lighting. She winced at the pain between her legs , then relaxed feeling a cool cloth come in contact with the sore area, she sat up to stare into the eyes of her brother. Opening her mouth to say something, she closed it as Tanaka shook his head.

They both knew

"Its okay, I know."

The youngest Kawasawa's eyes started to water, her hands collided with her eyes, tears spilled out and rolled down her arms.

                                                                  ************

"Bity, Tanaka. We have guest" Ryoutea informed, Aset nodded numbly. The room felt cold.

Distant….

All the love between them.

Gone…

The trust.

Vanish...

Who's doing?

One person…….

"My children, my oldest Ryoutea, then Tanaka and my smallest and only girl, Asetbity" Their mother, Lynn, said smiling. Strangers gathered around the three examining and prodding until one of the children finally exploded.

"STOP IT I'M NOT SOME SHOWCASE ITEM!"

The room went silence and Tanaka's expression became worried.

"Bity….calm down."

Aset's fist clenched "I WILL NOT I'LL-"

Lynn's lips pursed then changed into a slow smile before grabbing her daughter's arm tightly and moved towards the stairs, she looked over her shoulder still smiling.

"Forgive my daughter, she suffers from head damage."

The people nodded sympathetically and watched as the youngest Kawasawa being dragged up the stairs ignoring her cries.

Tanaka finished greeting the guest, his mother had come down sometime ago but his sister hadn't. Looking around carefully and sliding a hand through his golden brown hair, he slowly slid up the dark stairs checking the hall doors.

"Bity?"

Another door…

"Bity talk to me"

Another door…

"As- oh god"

The right door…

He entered the room slowly, the lights were on and bright but the air, the air seemed.

Dark…

Twisted…

Tainted…

Scarred…

He dropped to his knees, his hand shakily reach for the twisted figure in front of him. He turned his sister over, her bones were at an angle they were not meant to be at, and her eyes were open, devoid of life, emotion. A sob choked back in his throat as he slowly picked up the broken girl.

                                                                        **************

He slammed the door to his room with his foot, his hands filled with a bowl and spoon. He walked slowly but quickly. A smile slid on to his face, masking his pain.

"Bity….you have to eat ya know"

Aset didn't look at him or away from her hands before her, Tanaka sighed setting the tray of food down and started towards the door "I'll be right back; I have to get your drink."

"Why does she do this Tanaka, what did we ever do to her?"

Tanaka stopped; his hand hovered over the brown door knob. Silence filled the air then he slowly answered.

"I……don't know"

No, that wasn't true. He did know…

"Mother…..she had some problems, she does drugs you know that and….and it messes her up, her head. She doesn't know what she's doing."

"THAT'S NO EXCUSE!" Aset screeched making Tanaka wince. Tanaka's eyes overshadowed and expression went blank

"Go to sleep Asetbity"

"Brother"

"I said go to sleep!" he yelled turning to her; silver drops fell from his eyes to the carpet below. He turned and exited to room leaving his stunned sister. Aset shook, her hands covered her face a she yelled into them, muffling her cries, her tears joined Tanaka's on the carpet sinking and soaking.

                                                            *************

"Bity wake up"

Aset blinked several times as the voice repeated itself, Tanaka stood over her, dressed and with a bag, she sat up quickly.

"What's going on?"

Tanaka shushed her and held out some clothes

"Get dress."

Aset scrambled to her feet as Tanaka exited the room and got dress. She walked out the room finding him leaning against the wall across the room with his eyes closed. His flame colored eyes snapped open at the click of closed door.

"We're getting away, let's hurry"

Aset grabbed his arms "What about Ryoutea?"

 Tanaka shook his head "He didn't want to come, but he promised not to tell."

Aset sniffed "But…."

Tanaka cut her off with a glare.

"Suck it up."

They needed each other to get through this.

She needed him

He needed her

"Aset…" he started slowly grabbed her face between both his palms, Aset looked at him their eyes meeting. A silent understanding passed between them, Tanaka rested his forehead against hers' "If we don't make it out…." He left it hanging in the air.

Then kissed her...

The kiss spoke of so many things, hidden secrets, regrets, pains, and unknown emotions that left Asetbity speechless.

"Let's go now." Tanaka's soft voice whispered.

                                                ***********************

"Well isn't this sweet…" a voice said quietly, the two Kawasawa's turned their heads in fear. The door was before them only a few feet. Their eyes widened as their mother looked at them coldly.

"Going somewhere kids?"

Tanaka grabbed Aset's hands and pulled running towards the door

So close…

They were going to make it.

So close…

They were going to live a good life.

So close…

They weren't going to be hurt anymore.

So close…

"TANAKA!"

His grip jerked as he felt Aset's hand slip from his, his head turned quickly to see their mother embracing her youngest child from behind. Lynn's lips curved into a smile.

"Go on Tanaka, the doors open and right there just leave."

Tanaka slowed his running; his jaw clenched tightly seeing his sibling struggling against his mothers grip. Tears ran down Aset's face, it wasn't fair, they had been so close. They could have been free; it was snatched away like everything else she longed for.

"He won't leave me….Tanaka….he won't….will he?" the thought hung above her like a bad taste in her mouth and her heart felt a small nick in it at the possibility.

Their eyes met, brown and fire, older wiser and younger naive. Tanaka turned his back flinching upon hearing his sister cry out his name again and walked out the house, slamming the door behind him. He leaned against the large wooden door, his breathing harsh. Sobs escaped his mouth and tears ran silently down his face

"Aset….I'll come back, I promise. You won't be here forever" he vowed softly walking away from his old life and traveling to a new.

Chapter Inspired by 'Cry Little Sister' by Gerard McMann

A last fire will rise behind those eyes
Black house will rock, blind boys don't lie
Immortal fear, that voice so clear
Through broken walls, that scream I hear

Cry, little sister - Thou shall not fall
Come to your brother - Thou shall not die
Unchain me, sister - Thou shall not fear
Love is with your brother - Thou shall not kill

Blue masquerade, strangers look on
When will they learn this loneliness?
Temptation heat beats like a drum
Deep in your veins, I will not lie

Little sister - Thou shall not fall
Come to your brother - Thou shall not die
Unchain me, sister - Thou shall not fear
Love is with your brother - Thou shall not kill

My Shangri-Las
I can't forget
Why you were mine
I need you now

Cry, little sister - Thou shall not fall
Come to your brother - Thou shall not die
Unchain me, sister - Thou shall not fear
Love is with your brother - Thou shall not kill
