Summer SongsCh. 4 Challenge and Key
King Kazama appeared in the battle area, waiting for Love Machine to show up.
KK turned to see a familiar white haired avatar skating towards him. Her long braid flying out behind her and a worried look on her face.
"Keji, what are you...?"
Keji Kisa came to a stop in front of him and gave him a stern look.
"You're nuts if you think I'm going to let you do this on your own."
KK blinked in surprise before smiling. At that moment, there was the warning sound that meant there was a avatar incoming. They looked to where the warning was directed and saw a face they had hoped to never see again. Love Machine. As the AI landed Keji blinked, thinking there was something wrong with her monitor. Love Machine was badly pixelated, and was glitching in and out of existence.
KK rushed at Love Machine, but the AI ignored him completely, heading straight for Keji. Keji dodged the punch aimed at her head, using the speed boost from her roller blades to give

The next morning, Kazuma woke early to start his morning training. As he exited his room he heard the sound of someone singing. Curious, he followed the sound around the back to the yard outside the room that Kisa was currently occupying. There in the yard, dressed in a baggy lilac hoody and dark jeans, was Kisa. She had the CD player on and it was playing the instrumental part of one of her band's songs. Kisa herself, was barefoot on the yard singing the words of the song and dancing gracefully. Kazuma sat down on the porch and watched Kisa sing and dance for a good five minutes before something happened.
"Ouch!" Kisa exclaimed as she put her foot down. She quickly lifted her foot up again, and lost her balance.
Kazuma rushed over to her, catching her before she hit the ground. "You alright?" he asked.
"Y-yeah..." Kisa said looking at her foot. "I think I stepped on a thorn."
Kazuma helped her over to the porch and set her down on the porch. Kisa lifted her foot up to get a
Summer SongsCh.2 Reunion
Kisa was right. She really didn't like what the other members of the band had decide to make her do to pay them back for pulling the tickets. Kisa had a lot of self confidence issues, and they knew that. So what did they do? They made her have to wear this outfit for the concert. Kisa was currently wearing A long sleave white denim jacket that showed off her stomach, a short white skirt that stopped just above her knees and a pair of knee high boots. Her long dark brown hair was tied in its usual braid. Granted it could be worse, far, far, worse. But it still wasn't great.
"Yo, Kenji!" Saita called. "It's time to go on stage."
"I can't go out there looking like this!" Kisa wailed.
"Come on Kisa." Ayane said. "Your friend Kazuma is out there, right? Do you want him to have come all this way for nothing?"
Damn it. Ayane always was good at finding people's one weaknesses. Hers was that she couldn't stand the thought of disappointing a friend. Kisa sighed. Well if she w
Summer SongsCh.1 Reminiscence
Kisa Koiso entered her apartment silently, after a long day of band practice. She took her shoes off and put her bag down in the corner with a sigh. Then she smiled and headed to her computer, turning it on and logging in. Almost instantly she got a message from Kazuma.
'Hey, Kenji. Finally home are ya?'
Kisa smiled. 'Kenji' was what most of her old friends call her, after her brother who'd died ten years ago. Originally, the nick name had been 'Kenji's Shadow' as the twins had done everything together, with Kenji in the lead. After the accident everyone had simply started calling her 'Kenji'.
'Hey, Kazuma. Yeah I'm home. How have you and the family been?'
'Maybe you should come down and see for yourself.'
Kisa sighed. 'You know I can't, Kazuma. I can't face them.'
Five summers ago Kisa and her friend Sakuma had been asked for help by Natsuki, a girl in her physics club. Thinking of Natsuki as a friend, she'd gladly offered her help. There was just one problem, Natsuk
Fox and The Hound: A Spirit TailCh. 5
“Princess, time to wake up.” Griz called through the door in that annoyingly cheerful voice.
Tod muttered something insulting under her breath and ignored him. But, the stupid bear was really persistent.
“Princess Todeal. If you don’t wake up you’ll be late for your execution.”
Tod sat bolt upright in the bed. Execution? This was the first time she was hearing of it. Were they really planning to have her killed?
“Execution? What are you talking about?” Tod shouted.
“Oh dear, now I’ve spoiled the surprise.” Griz sighed. “You see dear we can’t afford for either the Fox Clan or the Hound Clan to find out about our hand in this. So we need you out of the picture. See? So hurry up and get ready, can’t be late for your last day.”
Tod had tried to delay the proceedings, however, as the sun began to set, found herself and the execution block. The block was atop the walls of the castle, a crow
Fox and The Hound: A Spirit Tail.Ch. 4
Tod and Copper turned quickly to see a group of bears standing not far from them. The middle one smirked at them, then turned to his fellows.
“A fox and a hound getting all cuddly, and not just any fox and hound, gents, Princess Todeal and Prince Copper. My, my, what will your parent’s say?”
Copper glared at the bears. “What do you lot want?”
“To protect our investments of cause,” the leader replied. “See sonny, we bears have made quite a living out of this little war. So you can see how we wouldn’t want anything to jeopardise it.” He let out a fake sigh of sorrow. “So you see, kiddies. I’m afraid we’re going to have to do something mean to you. Take the girl.”
The other three bears lunged at Tod and Copper. They quickly dodged the first attack. Copper turned to see if Tod was alright and felt something hit the back of his head. The last thing he saw was Tod struggling against her captors and the
Fox and The Hound: A Spirit TailCh.3
Slowly the days creped by. The mornings were filled with study, the afternoons with play. Despite their parents' warnings against it, Copper and Tod grew closer together, their friendship strengthened until the two became practically inseparable. But, in what seemed like forever and all too soon at the same time, the two friends found themselves in their last week at in the bird kingdom. As every year the bird clan was throwing a festival in celebration of the past year and Big Mama had told Tod and Copper that they should go out and enjoy the festivities. Tod had never been to a festival before, her parents were too protective to let her out of the castle, so she would always have to settle for watching form her room. Copper was determined to make this festival memorable.
"We're off, Big Mama." Copper called. In the spirit of the festival he was wearing a dark man's Kimono. Tod, who was beside him, was wearing a bright red girl's kimono with a cherry blossom hair clip on one side
Fox and The Hound: A Spirit TailCh.2
Tod sighed. It had been 1300 years since she'd last been here. The castle of the bird clan was still as big as ever. She hopped out of the carriage, wearing her usual Fox warrior uniform, her small pocket watch hanging around her neck. 'I wonder if I'll see him again,' Tod thought. She tuned out the pleasantries that her parents exchanged with Dinky, until she noticed him turn to her.
"Hey wait a minute here. This can't be the same small fry that wondered off last time she was here."
Lilvana smiled. "Believe it or not, it is. That's our daughter, Todeal."
"Well I got to say, she's grown up quite a bit."
"Well I am 1800 years old now." Tod said. She turned to her parents. "Mother, Father, I'm going to go look around."
"Sweetie, are you sure?"
"Don't worry Mom, I'll be alright." With that Tod walked off.
Meanwhile on the other side of the castle, Copper was wondering through the halls of the castle, trying to find that courtyard. Last time he had Tod's scent to guide him, but
Fox and The Hound: A Spirit TailCh.1
The fox clan and the hound clan have been at war for thousands of years. Oh, didn't I mention? These 'animals' are spirits. Appearing human for the most part, but having ears and tails like their respective animal. No one from either side remembers how this war began, but at this point no one even cares. But this isn't a story just about a meaningless war. This is the story of two young, brave, innocent souls, and how they helped bring peace to their home lands.
"Are we there yet?"
"Not yet dear, just be patient." The young queen chided her daughter.
The royal fox family had three members. The mother, 'Lilvana', was a young woman with long orange hair that was tied in a plait that came down to her waist, flowers decorated it all over. The father, 'Vixous', was a slim man with the build of a runner. His hair was a dark silvery colour. The final member was their daughter. A small thing with orange hair like her mother's that was only just reaching her shoulders. She ha
