There's a Story Behind Every Smile (Hitachii...
Used to be I'll Be Back. Might get a new cover soon!!!
Teru has lived a life almost science-fiction. At nine, she was taken from her family to work for the government, being the second best hacker in Japan, next to her father. She was a prodigy, leaving for the States to attend Massachusetts Tech College at thirteen. Now, she's back in Japan, and her top priority and her job have become very different things.
Now, her priority is to make two very important boys remember her, so she can die happy. But her job has started to conflict.
After all, the man she learned it all from has become her worst enemy.
*Ring... Ring* She took a shaky breath before someone picked up the phone.
"Hello?" She heard Kaoru's voice say tiredly while Hikaru whined in the background. "Who is this?" She cleared her throat before answering, making sure she didn't sound like a guy.
"Remember... back when you were nine? Third year of elementary school?" He paused before humming his answer. "Remember what I said to you?" She heard a light thump before the phone was once again picked up.
"Who is this, and what is with the prank call at eight in the morning? I'm tired," Hikaru grumbled tiredly.
She ignored the churlish comment. "I said I'd be back, Hika-chan, Kao-chan. And now I am. It's not really nice to forget your best friend and... Well, I guess I'm not anymore." She heard the muffled thump of the phone dropping on the bedspread.
A tear slipped, yet she still continued. "I said I'd play a game with you...
"And it will be my last."
OHSHC story that explains the "what if?" for if the Hitachiin twins were triplets. I know it's cliche, but I wrote the prologue out of pure boredom and writer's block, and I wanted to do something longer with it.
