"Where's Rei?" Rio asked.

"I'll get her!" Daiki jumped up. The little 13 year old ran out to porch.

On the swing, Rei sat next to Hiroto, her boyfriend. They were just about to kiss, and Daiki got an idea. He crept up behind the swing, and just as their lips were about an inch away, Daiki jumped up and shouted, "PUFF THE MAGIC DRAGON LIVES BY THE SEA!!"

Rei jumped and screamed, "YOU ASSHOLE! I'll kick your fuckin' ass!" Daiki ran into the house, jumped over the couch and rolled, then jumped up and ran into the kitchen.

"YOU LITTLE PIECE OF SHIT!!" Rei screamed as she ran after him.

"REI! Don't scream that language in the house!" Rio scolded.

Zui started mimicking Rei, "You wittle piece a' shit!"

"No, you not aloud to say that!"

"Why, you wittle piece a' shit?"

"NO! It's mean to people. Don't say things like that."

Koumu sat on the couch reading a book when Hiroto walked in.

Hiroto looked over at Koumu. "Who the fuck are you?"

Koumu glanced at Hiroto. "I should ask you the same thing."

"I'm Hiroto. Rei's boyfriend." He boasted.

"Fine. I'm her cousin, bitch."

"Who the hell are you callin' a bitch?"

"You, asshole."

"You want me to kick your ass?"

"You want me to kill you?"

"I don't need this shit." Hiroto said, just as Rei walked out.

"What?" Rei asked. Hiroto just walked out. Rei ran after him. "Wait! What happened?"

"Your family's nuts."

"What?"

"They're fucked up."

Rei grabbed Hiroto by the shirt collar. "My family is just fine."

"I noticed."

"Your such an ass!" She smacked him across the face. "Nobody calls my family 'fucked up' and gets away with it. GET OUT! I never want to see you face again, or I'll grab a switchblade and give you a free sex change!!"

Hiroto gaped at her. "What the-fine. Screw you and your family." With that, he walked off.

"PMS?" Koumu asked as Rei walked back in.

"Me or Hiroto?"

"One or the other. Or both."

"Maybe us both." She smiled. Wow.Koumu was great. She never told any one this, but she liked him. As in, maybe a crush. She loved his medium long blood red hair that was always behind his head in a loose and messy ponytail. She loved his dark green eyes. the two of them had grown up together. Rei didn't like the way she looked. She had brown hair that was tucked under a black baseball cap except for her bangs; one side was spiked up, and the other side was always flat against her face. She had red eyes.she didn't know where she got them. Her father's eyes were blue, and her mother's green. Maybe they were her grandfather's eyes.

"Hey, Rei?" Koumu tried to get her attention. "Can I screw you?"

Rei blushed suddenly. "NANI?!"

"Ha ha. Just kidding. That would be incest, ne?"

"Yeah.incest." Rei sighed. She forgot about that. The two of them were cousins, but sort of step-cousins. Maybe it wasn't incest after all.

"Rei! Koumu! I need you two to go to the store for me okay?" Ritsuko shouted from the kitchen.

"Aw! Mom, you're not cooking again, are you?" Koumu shouted back.

"No, Lyle is. He needs some supplies. Here's the list." After she gave Koumu the list she pouted. "And what is wrong with my cooking?"

Koumu sweat dropped. "We're gonna go get the supplies now.bye, Mom!" He grabbed Rei's arm and dragged her out the door.

The next morning was school morning. Rei dressed in her school uniform.that stupid skirt and all. She couldn't wear her hat today, no matter how much she wanted to.

She tried to put her hair in a ponytail using a ribbon, but was having trouble.

"Let me help you." Koumu walked up behind her, and helped her put it up. She blushed as he did this, because once his hand brushed her neck. He was already in his uniform, too. "It's time for us to go now. C'mon, we'll walk together." He didn't have to say that.they always did anyway.

Rei had walked behind him most of the way. Incest.why the hell is there such a thing?! She thought. I want him to be happy, and if that means that I will never be.then that's okay. She stopped in the middle of the road by accident, not knowing that she had. A car came speeding down the road, dead on.

"REI! YOU'RE GONNA GET HIT!!" Koumu yelled.

Rei snapped back to reality, and saw the car coming straight towards her. "Shit!" She screamed. She wanted to move but her legs refused to cooperate. The man in the car honked, and tried to swerve around her but his car was going to fast.

Something hit Rei and forced her to move out of the way. Koumu and Rei landed on the sidewalk, with Rei somehow on top. Koumu was hugging her tightly, then let go.

He glared at her. "YOU IDIOT! YOU ALMOST GOT KILLED!!"

Rei started crying and hugged him. "I couldn't move!"

Policemen ran up to the man in the car, who was speeding anyway just to get away from the cops. "YOU'RE SOME CRAZY BITCH!!" He yelled at Rei.

Rei blinked. Maybe she was a crazy bitch.crazy for not moving out of the street, crazy for being in love with her cousin.just plain crazy. A police officer walked over to Rei and squatted down.

"Are you okay, Miss?"

Rei didn't answer, so Koumu did. "Yeah, she'll be fine. I just think we should go home." He helped Rei stand up, and they walked off.

Rei sat down in the water, letting the salt water wet her skirt. Koumu sat down next to her. "You okay?"

"I guess so." Rei pulled her knees closer to her chest.

"We've been here all day."

"I know." Rei said as she stared at the setting sun. "Do you want to go home?"

"Doesn't matter."

"Well, you decide because I don't like making decisions."

"Like jumping out from in front of a car?"

"Yeah, like that." Rei snapped at him. She knew he was being sarcastic and she wasn't in the mood for that.

Koumu put his hands in his pockets. "Well sor-RY."

Rei rested her head back on her knees. "I'm sorry," she said quietly, "I just..." she stopped.

Koumu looked at her. "You what?"

"Nothing." She said standing up. "Oi, let's get home. I've got sand sticking to my ass and I want a shower!"

She started to walk away and Koumu grasped her arm. She turned to look at him.

"What were you going to say?" he demanded.

Shit. Rei thought.

"I said it was nothing!!" said Rei.

"You're hiding something." growled the half-vampire.

What the hell is with that look in his eyes? Is he, like.reading my mind or something?!

"Tell me." He demanded.

Rei gulped. Her heart was pounding against her ribcage. Her breathing was coming in shallow panicky breaths.

What to do, what to do, what to do.um.

"Well?" he said, "I'm all ears."

"I was just scared from that car thing today. That's all."

Koumu narrowed his eyes in disbelief. "I think you're lying to me."

"What in the hell do you want from me?! I'm not lying to you!!"

Koumu let go of her arm. He put his hands back in his pockets.

"Oi, Rei?"

Rei blinked. Damn.that's one hellava mood swing.it makes me wonder if he DOES get PMS.

"Yea?"

Koumu turned to her. "I need.to talk to you about something.it's important."

Rei blinked. "O.kay. so pour your little heart out to me why don't you?"

"This is serious, Rei."

Damn.Koumu and serious? Do those words even belong together?

"Okay.I'm not passing judgment." Said Rei.

"Meet me in the kitchen at midnight. We can talk there. Not here."

Rei nodded. He started walking up the board ramp and onto the boardwalk. Rei ran after him.

"Oi! Wait up!"
