Her purple eyes glanced at the vast sea of stars that lay above her. Her fingers playing with the lose hair strands that framed her face.

"Shinobu!"
A voice called out from the house behind her, her older sister kanae appearing at the door with a smile as she looked at the younger girl.
"Come in and eat! You have to go to bed soon!"

The young girl rolled her eyes before soon replying.

"Coming!"

Night time was never particularly her favourite but tonight felt... special. In a way. Like all her fears and worries no longer existed and instead she was met with the beauty of the dark hours.

"Shinobu!"

"Yeah yeah, I'm coming."





The towns place buzzed with chatter as Shinobu ran around, handing each destination their passage before running off to the next one. Soon finding herself flying off on her broom across town to get to the market place faster.

For you, it was just another day. Working for your father in his fishers shop as you ran back into the store with the basket of fish you got from the recent shipment.

"Dad."
You called for the male that instantly stopped cutting up the fish to look at you.
"Here's the newest shipment."
You smiled, sweat rolling down your temples from all the running you've been doing.

"Thanks y/n."
The man smiled, the bushy moustache curving upwards with his lips as he walked over to you, inspecting the baskets.
"Yeah, this will last us a while."
He beamed as you grinned.

Days went by quickly at the shop. The spot being a popular spot due to your top quality goods. People coming in and out within the minute as you worked hard to help your dad deal with the never ending wave of customers.

This customer however, caught your attention.

"Hi, how can I help you."
You smiled at the girl who had just walked through the door, laughing when you saw her instantly pinch her nose shut.

"Jesus.."
She muttered, walking over to you with letter in hand.
"This place stinks."

Usually you'd let comments like that pass. Sure, they annoyed you cause what else can you expect when walking into a fish store but today you really didn't wanna deal with it.

"Yeah, well that's what you get for entering a fish shop, sweetheart."
You scoffed, shaking your head as you began opening the letter.

Expecting the girl to have left by now, you were surprised to her her chuckle.

"Sweetheart?"
She sneered, your eyes now looking up at her after reaching the letter. Just another shipment order.
"You fisher people are all the same."
She scoffed as your eyebrows furrowed.

"In what way?"
You groaned.

"You're all flirts with no chances of getting anyone to love you."

"Excuse me?"

"You heard me."

The bickering between you and the purple haired girl continued, soon escalating to an argument as customers watched. Amused at the 'young love'.

"I JUST CAME TO DELIVER YOUR STUPID LETTER."
She exclaimed, throwing her hands up as you crossed your arms.

"AND THEN PROCEED TO NOT ONLY INSULT OUR SHOP BUT US TOO?!"

"YOURE THE ONE THAT CALLED ME SWEETHEART!"

"THATS NOT EVEN A RUDE NAME!"

You both continued shouting at each other as your dad walked back into the store after having to fix some issues on your ship. His eyes widening at the two arguing youngsters and the crowd that cheered on one or the other.

"Hey! Hey! Hey!"
He growled, pushing through the crowd to get to you two and seperate the fight. Having to hold you back from going around him to continue giving the girl a piece of your mind.

"Control that kid."
She huffed, snatching up her broom before walking out the door with a huff.

By now, your face was fuming. Steam basically blowing out of your ears as you attempted to go after her. Only getting stopped by your father who chuckled.

"Leave her. Not everyone understands us and that's fine."
He laughed, his soft smile making you whine before calming down.

"Fine. She's still a bi-"





"BITCH."

Shinobu walked back and forwards as her sister laughed at the angry teenager.

"I JUST WANTED TO BE NICE AND HAND OUT THEIR LETTERS BUT NOOO THEY JUST HAD TO BE RUDE."

The older girl chuckled, placing down her cup of tea before beckoning over the girl. Smiling once seeing her sit down across from her.

"Sometimes people get defensive and that's alright. We just need to walk out of there before we make it a bigger deal then what it is."
She smiled, handing her a cup of tea as she huffed.

"But they were being rude!"

"And so were you."
She chuckled, finding humour in her sisters ways.
"I say you go apologise tomorrow. I'm sure their dad will make them do the same."

The girls purple orbs widened as she whipped her head towards her sister, almost spilling her tea in the process.
"You're joking. Right?"

"Not at all!"

"Oh my god you're impossible."

The two girls drank their tea, finally finding peace as the younger one calmed.

She didn't know whether she liked you or not. She wasn't sure whether she liked your snarky attitude where you won't let others walk over you and insult you or hate you for being able to butt heads with her. Something many didn't have the courage to do.

Though, one thing was for sure.

She would, one way or another, find herself going to apologise to you tomorrow.
