I can't think about anybody but you, sugar. Ch.1
"I can't believe that we're not taking Anatomy together!"
"Chill, we're taking three other classes together and we live in the same dorm room. It's just one class."
"Yeah, Gou, but why did you have to schedule a night class for yours?"
"Chigusa, I already went over this: One, the name is Kou and two, I got that work-study job at the cashier office, remember? On the days I have to work there, I have to have my classes at night."
Chigusa, with chestnut hair pulled up in a bun, whined on her twin bed across from Gou in their dorm room. It was the beginning of their freshman year at Tokyo University and the girls have been inseparable since the end of their middle school days. They made sure that they shared the same dorm room together and have the same classes as well. But Gou was able to receive a part-time job as a work-study student at the University's cashier office. Because of that, Gou has to take classes on the days she has to work, which will only be her Anatomy class.

"I am never getting stitches again." Gou whined, wincing when the paramedic finished the last suture on the deep cut she received on her face.
Sousuke chuckled, crossing his arms over his chest. "Right. Let this be the first and last time you get them."
Gou glanced at him, making sure she doesn't move her head to bother the paramedic from his work. "I better not. Stitches give me the heebie-jeebies."
Her statement caused the paramedic to cough up a laugh, but he quickly returned to his work. Sousuke smiled. "I think you may be the first person to say that saying."
"Plenty of people say that!"
"Yeah, people over 60 years old."
Gou huffed and turned her eyes away from Sousuke. "Whatever." She mumbled.
After the paramedic patched up her gash and other little cuts and bruises she received, he gathered his things and headed back in the ambulance. Both Gou and Sousuke reassured the man she didn't need to be taken to the hospital. If she felt worse a few days later, she would go immediately t

"Nitori, do you have a temporary potion to turn a creature human for like a day?"
"Sousuke-san. It's 11 at night. I didn't even tell you that the other one is done yet." Nitori rasped, rubbing sleep out of his eyes. Poor Nitori was disturbed from his slumber from a loud banging from his front door. Sousuke, along with two other men, were there. "A hello would suffice, you know?" He said, rolling his eyes.
Sousuke took a breath. "Nitori. I apologize for disturbing you late at night but this is seriously an emergency."
Nitori raised an eyebrow up. "It's okay. Now who are they?" He glanced over at his company.
"Nitori, this is my best friend Rin and this... This is the merman-orca we turned human. His name is Makoto."
Nitori's eyes grew wide, all drowsiness instantly disappearing. "Wha…are you serious? It worked?"
Sousuke nodded. "Yes, it seriously worked."
Makoto tentatively bowed and waved at Nitori. "N-nice to meet you, Nitori-san. I wanted to thank you for turning me into a huma

"Where are they? We have to get them!" Makoto continuously shook Sousuke's shoulders, fear etched in his eyes and his voice wavering.
Sousuke grabbed a hold of Makoto's arms and calmly released his hands from his shoulders. "Makoto. We will find them. Calm down so we can all think rationally."
Makoto lowered his head and slumped his shoulders. Gou hooked her arm around his left arm, using her free hand to rub his arm soothingly. "Don't worry, we will save your brother and sister, Makoto." Gou whispered, tears threatening to fall from her eyes.
He solemnly glanced at Gou, staring into her crimson eyes before nodding in agreement.
Sousuke looked closely at the picture to figure out clues. The twins were bound-tied together in what looks to be about a tank, their eyes pleading with desperation. Sousuke suddenly recognized that the tank that they are in isn't from the lab where he usually goes to, the lab that Makoto was caged in not too long ago. Sousuke squeezed his eyes shut after reali

"I have no idea what you're talking about." Sousuke said, making himself more discreet, peeking over his shoulder to see everyone else enjoying their selves.
"Cut the crap, son. I'm not an idiot. I had my men check around for me and those Mikoshiba brothers weren't exactly reliable either. Where is it?"
"What?" Sousuke drawled.
"You know what I'm talking about. My specimen!"
"He has a name."
"Please son, where did you suddenly think you could stand up to me? That is my specimen and I want it back."
"You don't even know where he is!" Sousuke stated, trying to calm his uneven tone.
"If that's how you want it, fine. But I'll get it back, even if I take drastic measures. Enjoy the rest of the week. Also, consider yourself cut out from the family, son." With that, Sousuke heard the line cut off. He turned towards the group worriedly.
"Guys, I think it's time for us to head back home."
Rin noticed Sousuke's demeanor. "Something's wrong. What happened, Sousuke?"
Sousuke looked down at the gro
