<Well Ping, you are certainly in a good mood this morning. >

Ping looked over at Miho and smiled, <I sure am, last night Piro told me that he would try to find us our own place to stay. >

Miho nodded, <Well I'm glad to see that you took my advice, or did Piro bring it up on his own? >

Ping giggled, <I think he is a bit overwhelmed to be living with three girls after so long with Largo. He isn't sure what it is he is supposed to do. >

Miho smiled, <If he were like most boys he still wouldn't know but he wouldn't be worried about it. >

The two friends laughed at this then Miho continued, <Don't be too hard on him if he can't get a place right away. He'll need to get something close and small. That won't be easy. >

Ping replied wistfully, <Well, that attic apartment really wasn't that bad. As long as we can be together it will be fine with me. >

<Good morn ing, Tohya-san! >

Miho and Ping looked back, <Miho-chan, isn't that Sonoda-san? >

Miho nodded, <Yes, I wonder what she wants. >

They waited as Yuki, Mami and Asako hurried to catch up. <Good morning, Sonoda-san. How are you today? >

Yuki was out of breath though it wasn't from her haste to catch Miho and Ping, she was nervous and a little scared. Could she do this? <I am fine. > She looked to either side at Mami and Asako. <We were talking about fun places to go and I had heard that you have a job at an interesting place. >

Miho looked at the three younger girls and pursed her lips, <Yes, The Cave of Evil. It is a dance club and it is lots of fun. > She stared at Yuki expectantly.

Yuki's mouth was dry, <Well, is it the sort of place that my friends and me could go too? >

Miho's eyes narrowed, <If you mean can you enter at your age then yes, if not then you better explain what it is that you mean. >

Yuki looked at the ground; she could feel the blood rushing to her face. Mami and Asako seemed to wilt before Miho's glare.

< I...I mean do you think that we would have fun there? >

Miho smiled, <Of course you would! > She looked into her purse and finally pulled something out. <Here are three free passes for you and your friends. I'm sorry for being mean to you. >

Yuki looked up and blinked, she reached for the passes then nearly snatched them from Miho as if she thought that she might take them back. <Thank you, Tohya-san! >

Ping and Miho watched the three friends go off toward their school chattering and laughing. Ping looked at Miho, <What do you think that was all about? >

Miho shook her head; <They are up to something. Did you notice that none of them even looked at you? >

Ping nodded, <I did but I didn't think it meant anything. >

<Well, it did. I think Sonoda-san may have eyes for Piro too. >

Miho's eyes widened in alarm as Ping's earblades flashed red for just a second. <Ping, you are going to have to control that. >

Ping looked at Miho and sighed, <You're right, but why does she have to be after Piro? It's hard enough with Hayasaka-san and Nanasawa-san. >

Miho didn't answer but instead resumed walking to school; she really was going to have to talk to Piro.

<hr/>

Erika and Piro were just finishing breakfast at Anna Millers, Erika smiled as she watched Piro wiping his plate clean. She felt a pang when she realized that his lifestyle had probably prevented him from getting decent meals regularly. He was use to eating something from a box while sitting at a console.

<Well, you're in a good mood today Piro. >

Piro looked up a t her and smiled, <Yeah, I guess I am. I've really been feeling good lately. >

Erika slipped her shoe off and rubbed her foot against Piro's knee under the table, Piro blushed deeply but didn't protest. <So, what did you and Ping do after she left us last night? >

Piro looked at Erika and impossibly he seemed to turn even more red, <I, we, I meanů>

Erika covered her mouth and laughed, <I'm sorry Piro, it's just that you and Ping were a bit, umm, noisy for just a little while. >

Piro glared; <She started tickling me! >

Erika reached over and took his hand; <I shouldn't tease you so much. > She looked into his eyes <I guess I'm just a little jealous, that's all. >

Piro suddenly looked down; Erika reached up and touched his cheek. <If Kimiko weren't there I'd have come out and help her tickle you. >

Piro chuckled then though he tried to suppress it, <I don't know if I'd survive it. You and her would be having contest. > He looked into Erika's eyes, <She asked me which one of you is the better kisser. I had to admit to her that you are so she said that she needed to practice more. >

Erika glanced at her watch and suddenly looked serious, <Look at the time! We'd better get to the store. >

As they left Anna Millers Erika took Piro's hand, <If we keep talking about things like that I'd be tempted to take you back to the apartment and call in sick for the both of us. >

Piro's ears turned red at this, Erika smiled. He was just so cute when he blushed like that!
