"....now we will be adding a pinch of the salt and the pinch of the pepper....."
same night, Rena was so bored out of her mind that she ended up turning on the TV and watched a late-night cooking show with
some lady with an Italian accent. Maki was sleeping after a hard day at her new job. Luckily for Rena, Maki loved her job
enough so that she doesn't complain anymore.
Now, for some odd reason, Rena had been bored in her home ever since.
Probably because Maki doesn't complain about her job any more.
Rena tried cleaning the apartment since she was off
from work today, but there really wasn't much to clean. All she really had to do was mop the kitchen floor and wash the windows,
which both only took her two hours to do.
It was about ten-thirty at night. Rena wanted to go to sleep, but she wasn't
tired. Nothing was keeping her up. It was just one of those moods when she wants to go to sleep, but she's not tired at all.
then, to her surprise, Rena heard her door knock.
'Hmm, who could that be?' she asked. She got up from the couch with
the blanket wrapped around her small-framed body. She walked over to the door and looked through the peak-hole. She smiled
as she saw Guy standing in front of her door. She unlocked the door and undid the latch, then opened the door, indeed revealing
"Guy," Rena said. "What are you doing here?"
Guy shrugged. "Well, I thought I should visit you for a little
Rena smiled. Basically, Guy was visiting her for no apparent reason, which she found pretty romantic. "Okay.
Guy walked into the apartment. Rena locked the door behind her.
"Well," Guy said. "I guess you can't
Rena shook her head. "Nope. I'm just sitting here watching a boring Italian cooking show. Maki's in
her room sleeping like a baby."
Guy laughed a little. "I was going to call you, but I figured that your sister would
kill me for waking her up, so I came over instead." He sat down next to Rena on the couch. "So what did you do on this boring
"Just cleaned parts of the apartment," Rena replied. "That's about it really. What about you?"
most of the day. I don't think I woke up until three o'clock in the afternoon when Greg came into my apartment. Apparently,
Cody must've taught him house to unlock anyone's apartment with that stupid paper clip of his."
Rena laughed a little.
"So what did you do?"
"The usual, I try to tell him to get out, but he just wouldn't listen." Guy let out a sigh. "Oh
well, so much for that again."
Rena began to become a bit disturbed. She began to notice Guy acting a bit different
than usual. He didn't act like the shy person she knows. He acted a bit different.....like he was serious.
wrong?" Rena asked.
Guy looked into her eyes. "How did you know?"
"You're not acting like the Guy I know," Rena
Guy let out a loud sigh. "I have this bad feeling about something."
bad happened tonight to......to someone......"
"Guy.......is that why you came over here?"
Guy looked down at
the ground and then slowly nodded. Then, he looked back up at her. "I care about you a lot Rena and I don't want anything
to happen to you."
Rena took her left hand and placed it on Guy's face. They looked into each other's eyes. "Guy.......I'm
glad that you care, but you can't worry about me all of the time. Just promise me that you won't be overprotective."
a minute, Guy stayed silent. Then, without taking his eyes off of Rena's face, he nodded. "I promise."
minute, they stared into each other's dark eyes. Guy and Rena knew how close their faces were from each other and before they
knew it, their lips were locked together in a sweet kiss. At first, neither one of them moved, both not sure what to do next.
Guy began to move his lips a little creating a rhythm in the kiss. Rena began to follow the rhythm. All that could be heard
in the small room was their passionate kissing and rhythmic breathing.
Soon, Rena found herself laying on her back
with Guy on top of her. Both of them had their arms tightly around each other and made their kiss more passionate. Rena started
to feel the butterflies in her stomach as she and Guy began to tongue wrestle in each other's mouths.
After five minutes,
they released their kiss and look into each other's eyes. Guy placed a hand on Rena's face. "We just......"
Guy smiled a little. "Let's go in your room, um, just incase Maki comes out of her room."
smiled. "Okay," she said in her most seductive voice.
Guy got up. He took Rena into his arms and carried her to her
"I'm beat," Jessica Haggar cried out. Work had taken
a lot out of her, especially since she has been working later than usual. It was eleven o'clock at night. Jessica was tired
but wanted to stay up a little bit longer. She got her pajamas on, and then she walked into the kitchen.
the TV on in the kitchen. Then, she went in the freezer and took out a pint of vanilla ice-cream. She then grabbed a
spoon and began to dig in. She looked at the TV. The news was on.
"......In other news, the criminal organization known
as Mad Gear is still growing in this city rapidly. It may not be long before they manage to take over Metro City. Mayor Mike
Haggar has been resisting Mad Gear's threats and is still working with the Metro City Police Department. He hopes to stop
the organization once and for all......."
Jessica sighed. She took the remote and pressed the 'off' button shutting
off the television.
"Oh Daddy," Jessica said referring to the Mayor of Metro City. "I hope that we can stop Mad Gear
Jessica began thinking about her father. It's been a while since she had seen him since he has been very
busy with fighting Mad Gear, but he still made sure to call his daughter everyday to let her know that he still loved her.
mother had passed away years ago, sadly murdered by the hands of the organization. Jessica was too young to remember her mother,
but she knew that her father has vowed to avenge her mother. Haggar didn't become Mayor just to get revenge on Mad Gear. He
also became Mayor of the city to protect the city's people and to make sure that what happened to his wife would never happen
again to anyone else.
Jessica became startled when the phone started ringing. She got up from her chair and walked
over to the phone. She took it off the receiver and brought it up to her ear.
"Hey sugarplum," her
boyfriend Cody said.
Jessica smiled. "Hey baby, what's up?"
"Nothing much," Cody replied. "How was work?"
Jessica replied. "But at least work is done and I'm off from work tomorrow."
"True," Cody said. "So do you want to
do something tomorrow?"
"Hmm......how about we go to Metro Park and walk around?"
would be great," Jessica said. "Well, I'm going to go now, baby, I'm pretty tired."
"All right then," Cody answered.
"I love you."
"I love you too," Jessica said. She hung up the phone and sighed with happiness. Even if he had nothing
to say, and even if a conversation wasn't long, Jessica loved it whenever Cody called. She turned her head and looked at a
photo of them in a photo frame. The picture was taken not that long ago.
"Oh Cody, it's hard to believe how long we've
Two hours later.....
Jessica tried to sleep, but she couldn't. She tossed and turns trying to
fall asleep, but no matter what she tried, it was impossible.
'Maybe I'm not that tired after all,' she thought.
got up from her bed and began to walk towards the kitchen. She was once told that a glass of milk could put a person to sleep
Jessica opened the fridge and grabbed a carton of milk. She went through her cabinets and took out a
small glass cup. Then, she poured the milk into the cup and put the carton back in the fridge. She took a sip out of it.

Jessica gasped and dropped her glass of milk. The glass landed on the floor and shattered into a million pieces.

Suddenly, she felt
someone grab her from behind. Jessica was just about to scream, but the person who grabbed her was too strong. The person
put a cloth over her nose and mouth. As she struggled to free herself, she breathed in the chemicals from the cloth. Just
before she passed out, her captor ended up moving back and knocked down the photo frame containing the picture of herself
and Cody. When it landed, the glass shatters just like the glass of milk.
