It was a great august morning for racing on one of the roads in Moscow. At the edge of the big city there was a quietly road for race pilots who loved excitement and adrenalin. On that road early in the morning there was a race car and the driver was just a seventeen year old girl named Sasha. In that day she got almost 18 years old. And her dad, a 45 years old man, who was right next to her in the car gave her the permission for the first time to drive the car so fast and so excited. Till that day she never drove that car because it was special prepared for her 18 birthday anniversary. Although the past anniversaries she didn’t want to celebrate for this time her dad convinced her and promised her the car and a big party in the evening with a lot of people and with all her friends. Although that race red car was prepared like the big main gift for the evening party she couldn’t wait and her father thought that would be good to take a ride with it on that road. And it was even so much fun for both. Her dad was watching her while she was driving the car like a professional race pilot and remembered about her mom who was a Japanese girl and who liked to drive race cars too some 19 years ago. Although she was half Japanese, Sasha had blue sparkling eyes. She was alike to her mother so much that sometimes her father was watching her so attentive and remembered all good memories when they were a couple back in the 19 years ago. - Maybe it is enough… Sasha! Hm? How do you think? said he after she stopped the car for a min. - Is it? she replied breathing roughly. - Oh… we are here for 2 hours already… its already 7am and we should go back and take the breakfast. - Once more circle…hm? Just one more… - No no no! - Dad… I’ve been always a good and obedient daughter… but today for the first time I will be disobedient… Moreover I’ll get soon 18 years old… so stop bothering me… That even says the Holy Bible… who wrote that there was extremely smart… - Uf! You became annoying already… just like your mom… he made a very sad and pale face and turned his eyes aside from here. After she did one circle more she smiled so much innocent and drove the car out of that road going back home. On the way her father asked her so happy how did she felt in that car and knowing that she is getting 18 years soon. She smiled so glad and answered without taking away her eyes from the road. Then her father asked about the future plans. - Eh? Dad why do you ask me? she turned her look to him so astonished and then she saw that he was filming her. Eeeeh! Dad… stop it… she became arrogant and looked on the road again. - Don’t be so shy… Let’s just make a video for your mom… hm? She must be curious how do you look like… Ha ha! She couldn’t say absolutely anything though she dislike her mom, but in front of him she always was the most prettier and kind person regarding to all things and everybody that her father liked and loved. She was driving carefully on the way back home and tried to pay attention more to the camera for the video could be a good one. - Ah… Ayome… do you have boyfriend? - Eeeh! Oh mom… do you see how is bothering my father? OH!
- Ha ha ha! She is such a spoilt girl… oh, sorry, that’s really my bad… In that moment the girl turned her eyes to him and tried to make a cute smile for her mom and even didn’t pay attention on the road at all. And when she watched again on the road there in the middle right in front of the car was a young girl who was talking on the phone. The girl looked so strange. She was dressed so easily and her long black hair was tangled. Her happy face became in a second terrified and an act from reflex was to put the drag, but the girl was too close. - ARGH!!! she screamed and tried to avoid the impact. When she heard the gnashing of the wheels she turned her face and saw the red car heading to her. She was too close to avoid the impact and in just a seconds the car stopped and she already was behind it lying on the ground and bleeding so badly. Sasha breathing so rough fixed her eyes on the aside mirror where she saw the reflection of the girl who was bleeding half dead on the road. There was nobody else around. Her father was shocked too and stopped the camera right away. - Sasha… hey! he raised his voice on her and shacked her a little bit. But she was shocked and at the time she even didn’t move a finger. She was just hopeless staring on the mirror maybe the girl would somehow move the hand or the leg. But that dark-haired girl didn’t even breathe already. Her father drew her out of the car and called for help. In few minutes there appeared the ambulance and the police. The ambulance took the girl who seemed already dead. Sasha was watching her and when the ambulance already went from there in a rash she still was looking behind it. Her father tried to explain to the police that he was driving and the girl was just walking on the road and talking on the phone. Later there was found out that she was even drunk and her parents asked Sasha’s father only to pay a part of her rehabilitation. Although she survived she was in a really bad situation. In that day was no party. And Sasha felt even guiltier because the girl was her acquaintance and a night before she asked her to go out to drink, but she didn’t. She was stressed and from her head weren’t getting out the eyes of that girl and things that happened in those 3 seconds. Some days later the girl ended her painful days in the hospital and at the other day was her funeral ceremony. Her parents were so much hurt and her older brother was even refraining his feelings. But her lover who was there too was watching Sasha as he want to prick her right there. When she came back home by walk she was thinking and ponder over the things and the burden that she killed that girl and thoughts about the sadness and the pain that she brought to the girl’s family made her to walk almost all the day to arrive home. She was looking and watching all the things and all the people around her and. Once she arrived home her father hugged her so tight and said: - Sasha… that’s not your fault… she was drunk… and there could be anyone in your place… there couldn’t anything be done… You are right! You were right at the time too! Every year we, drivers, pay for the road we head our cars every day. The pedestrians aren’t even concerned about our way or our burdens. They are even annoying so many times and there are annoying drivers too… but that doesn’t mean that always is the driver who is guilty when something bad happens. You were right in your case. Even if you looked in the camera and that could make you to feel guilty you were right. - Dad? she whispered. - Hm? he watching her and stoking her face. - Its almost 15 years you have the garage and working with cars. I became to love cars too… But why now this love hurts me as it is cutting me from inside… You never had accidents… right? - Listen to me, Sasha! You were right… so… that’s not even a burden for you. You would never loose your love if it has already roods in your heart. - Hum… she shacked her head.
- Ok! Now go and make a tea for both of us while I will close the garage and the gates too. Alright? Sasha shacked her head again and went in to the kitchen to prepare the tea in the way her father taught her father, the way that her mother taught him. She already prepared the tea and was sitting on the chair thoughtfully again. She was thinking to the words her father just said and she even understood that there wasn’t her fault although she was sure there was her attribution too. At the moment she noticed that her father is staying kind of too long on the gates and she went to see. When she went out in the street searching for him she saw somebody who run away from the garage and there was the light switched off. - What the…? Hey… stop there… she chased immediately after him and finally caught him after some minutes of running. When she put her hand on him he was scared and even mad. He looked at her and tried to pull out his shirt. - Let go of me! - No way! she screamed and hit him on the left knee and he fell down. - Cool! Beat me… Kill me like your father did it with my girl… But that was worth of all efforts… In that moment she understood that the guy was the girl’s lover. Even she didn’t see his face because of the dark night she got it and there was no doubt that the guy who was staring at her that day on the funeral was him. - What are you looking for in my father’s garage…? - Go back and see… I revenged my lover’s death… - Eh? Couldn’t be so… you… couldn’t! You bastard…!!!! she screamed and became to hit him as much and strong as she could. Did you do something to my dad? Did you hurt him? ARGH!!! You stupid… You got the wrong person… Dumb! Oh my… what idiots are living in our cou After she hit him some more she just left him there and run back home in a rash. And when she arrived she came in to garage and switched on the light. What she saw there was a picture she wouldn’t forgot for the rest of her life – her father was on the ground and his body was burned. Some things from there burned too. On the walls there was blood and all the details and tools were spread. While she was chasing the guy there was a fire that destroyed her father’s body and his dream. She just fell down on her knees and watched all those things with her eyes full of tears. Tears that her father hated so much. That was a really awful and painful picture for her. A picture that never will be gone from her mind. - So… That’s my new life… beginning like this and heck knows how ending up. She said while sitting on chair in the kitchen after some days from that incident. A old woman who was her grandmother came closer and stroke her head. On the table was a ticket to Tokyo and her passport. After kissing her forehead grandmother said: - That’s it… You have to go… tomorrow in the evening… You have no choice…
Walking on one of the many streets from Tokyo she was so much astonished by surrounding
high buildings and so many people on the streets, so many different cars and shops. Because of her astonishment she even forgot that she needed to take a taxi to get to her mother’s house, she even forgot about all the things and she concentrated her attention and mind only on the new picture she saw for the first time in her life. The car crowd what was on the huge streets made her even to smile so happy. Outside was just simple hot weather typical to that area and she was clothed in a simple pink dress and she even was wearing a pair of high shoes that didn’t match at all with the big satchel that she wore on her back. That morning she just came from airport, although there for sure was somebody who should have met her, somehow she escaped alone on the Tokyo’s streets. It was already the lunch time and she didn’t even take her breakfast in the morning. So she just bought some rolls and then some icecream and sprightly continued to walk on the streets. She even wanted to walk more but there already was getting dark and she finally remembered that she also needed to arrive to someone’s home that day. Immediately she tried to catch a taxi but she kind of couldn’t do it. After some minutes of trying in vain next by her stopped an expensive car. It was a white Lexus GS 300, a very luxurious car. She looked so amazed and thought that there was a special driver who should have take her home to her so-called mother. But after some moments from the car got out a guy about 25 years old with a white cap in the head and dressed in simple blue jeans and a red shirt unbuttoned little bit for he could look sexy. - Miss… you were looking for a taxi? asked he with a cute smile but trying to hide his face. Sasha looked at him then at the car and then again at him. - …wow… she whispered. You are a taxi driver? at this question he didn’t even breath. Ha ha! Oh my… please tell me that’s a joke… You are such good looking guy and you even have such a luxurious car… from the first sight you seemed to be a very high posted… But… she couldn’t refrain her mockery laugh. - Miss… Please stop mocking me and get into the car. I will drive you wherever you would like. - Ha…?! Aha… I got ii! I got it! The fee must be even expensive for that… So, how much? - Eeeh?? he stared astonished on her. How much?? What the heck…? - Hey… please don’t damn in my front it is impolite and you Japanese people are recognized among the whole world that you are the very educated nation from this planet. So, how much does it cost? she looked again at his astonished face. Ah…! Forget it… I’ll pay double if you even give me the occasion to drive it just for some meters. - You even can drive? he even looked scared at that moment. - Ha ha… Better than you, little boy… Saying that she got off the satchel from her back and put it on backless bench. Then smiling she set into the car and the guy got into the car quickly too. She threw a very seductive glance to him and with a cunning smile on her face start the car with a shrill gnashing of the wheels, but with the same gnashing she even stopped in the second moment with a scared face and all her body was perspired. She just stared on the road and even was breathing harsh. - What the heck… she whispered. What’s wrong…? she became to knead with hands the flounce of the car and was trying to understand what was wrong and why she could just freely drive that car. Her body was totally disobedient to her mind and even her hands were trembling. - Miss… sorry… maybe it’ll be better if I will simple drive my car to the place you want… Please! She left the flounce and let down her eyes. In some minutes she even calmed down, but was still looking sad. The guy was watching her and tried to comfort by words or even by touching her hands. She suddenly breathed deeply and turned to her satchel. From there she got a piece of paper and gave to him. Then she just threw a very sad look to him and was expecting for an answer. - Ha… so… That’s even after 2 districts from here… - Hmm… she smiled. That means I can even arrive there by walk.
- Eh? By walk… you are crazy… how can …? he got astonished again. - Anyway… Thanks for… nothing? He he… but if you can walk me till this place I would be even more thankful to you. The guy did nothing than to smile and got out from the car. He took his satchel and carried it into his back all the road. On this view Sasha was very touched and very obedient followed him. But because of the high shoes and of all day long walking in those high shoes she stopped for a bit and looked on her hurt feet. At the next moment next to her was a guy who asked her something in Japanese. She smiled odd and looked for the guy, but she didn’t see him anymore. The Japanese man insisted and even began to touch her waist trying to get closer. - What the heck, man? Know your place… Let go of me… but the man didn’t even heard her words and even insisting more and more. - Hey… この娘は俺の彼女だ。うせろ！(This girl is my girlfriend… so get lost!) suddenly appeared the guy with the white cap on his head and after saying that he took Sasha’s right hand and went ahead further. Now Sasha was forced following him. She was amazed of the way he suddenly took her away from there. Nobody till now did force her to do something neither raising voice on her. But this guy behaved like he knew what’s better for her and she even got scared of the way he was leading her ahead. He was walking fast with big steps holding her hand and she was just running after him like a little puppy. And all the way she was staring at him and being astonished. She never felt like this to any guy till now. He was carrying her bag and when they arrived in front of a big and very high building he stopped and looked at her. - What? she looked so annoyed at him. - Hm… he smiled sad. So… you are just going back to your home? - Is it here my home? WOW… she smiled feeling so much cool. - Stop playing with me… the guy said. Sasha looked at him and she didn’t even get that he was mad on her. She was too much amazed of that building. The guy let her hand and put the bag on her right shoulder. She looked at him with her shining blue eyes. - Thanks… I don’t even know the Japanese well so it was a great thing that you appeared in my way. And… Thank you for your help… she easy bowed to him in sight of thanks as it is proper for Japanese people and then instead of paying to him she just kissed him on the left cheek then she went leaving the guy with a astonishing face. The guy followed her by eyes and didn’t understand anything. He felt something different and even something weird. Then after some minutes he went from there too with a thankful smile on his face. - Aigoo… that girl… Sasha arrived finally at the door she had to and knocked. From there came out a woman who hugged her immediately. - Where have you been so long? Why you didn’t expect on airport…? After the strong hug and the words Sasha understood that the woman was her mother who left her father long time ago and for whom she didn’t bear any grain of respect. She remained cold and indifferent to her words or acts. And even in her eyes there was ignorance and annoy. And at the next moment she saw something that really made her confused and shocked. Next to the worried woman there appeared a girl dressed pink long dress, tall and with a great body. She had the same white face, blue sparkling eyes and long black hair. The same face as her. So much alike and no small difference. It was even shocking when the girl smiled and winked to her. - Come quickly in and accommodate as well as possible. Azami, please take care of her I am going
to prepare something to eat, I am sure you are starving Ayome… said the woman who took her bag and hold her hand so strong. - Sasha… my name is Sasha… and please call me so… Immediately the shining smiling Azami’s turned into a sorrow sad face. The woman got uncomfortable too hearing this and letting down her look said. - You might be right… just go and arrange your self… your younger sister will help you to adjust to the new life. But if you are not that much glad of it… we’ll simple call you Sasha and nobody will try to obligate you to do something you don’t want. It’s approaching to 12pm and we should already sleep at this time, but… - I am sorry for troubling you… she bowed to her and took her bag from the woman’s hands. I think I am totally fine and able to arrange and prepare by my self for sleeping. Azami looked at her and got mad. She approached to her and took her bag and said: - Welcome into our home, Sasha… she also bowed to her. After all arranged already things we are sisters. Being your younger sister I am expecting to be taught new things and… maybe we could recoup our waste in vain time being apart… Their mother looked so much worried and even felt so much bad that she went out from the room. She went to her bedroom crying in a silent way. - I am Sasha… nice to meet you finally… Azami? said she smiling and bowing too. Azami looked with a sad smile and took her into her room then after Sasha took a shower they ate together and then went to sleep together. But they didn’t fall in a sleep because they began to talk and to get know each other. They had so much in common and that approached them quickly to each other. At the next day after the breakfast the three of them went to introduce the new girl to her grandfather, her mom’s father who was a rich man, but who made nothing but staying home and carrying about banzai trees. The old man who’s name was Mr. Kaneshiro propose to the girls to stay in his house because after so much worries and bad things their mother needed to take a rest as well. His house was very big and made after Japanese traditional architecture. The house also had a huge wonderful garden. In that garden girls took a lot of pictures and even had a lot of fun together. Azami even began to talk about her love affairs and about the things happened to her and Sasha had nothing to talk about except cars and the bad things she just went through. - Yes… you got through so many things… said Azami. Sasha looked at her and smiled then set down on the green and fresh grass and breathed deeply. - Yeah… That’s the idea… I got through and now not anymore… everything is done and passed like nothing there was. Here is even a great place… She said that like she suddenly forgot everything from past and tried to penetrate into a new world with no consideration of the next moment. - If I wouldn’t know that my sister is so much alike to me I would say that you are in love… said Azami smiling shy. - Eh? Sasha shuddered suddenly. Me? In love… No way… I don’t even know what means this world! she lifted her full of confidence voice. Compared with you I didn’t have that much time and will to have love stories in high school. - What? You mean… do you mean…? You never… screamed astonished Azami. - I never what? Sasha looked suspicious at her twin cheeky sister. - Oh my… she jumped next to her down on the grass and looked directly into her eyes. You never touched a guy? - Eh? Why … why not?! I did… be sure! I did! she said embarrassed but still tried to look full of
confidence. - Really? When was last time? Azami became so much interested. - …eeh! Well… some weeks ago… yes… some weeks ago! …yeah! - Oh my… and… how long? - How long? Oh come on, Azami! I am not a champion and I didn’t even check the time… maybe just some minutes… -What?! Only some minutes? - Oh… you wanted more? she even raised her voice. - Oh my… some are doing this even hours and you only some minutes? Oh my… I can believe that… she looked so much disappointed that made Sasha to boast a little bit. - I ran after him before this and then… - What??? You ran after him? Oh my… you even naughtier than me… you first chased him and then… Oh my… Sasha felt so much proud of her at the time that she didn’t even get what the point in all their discussion was. Azami even began to change her thoughts about Sasha. - How otherwise I could catch him to beat… he never would stay… Azami looked at her shocked. - Eh? …beat? You forced him…? - No… he forced me… she replied with wrath in her eyes. - He rapped… Azami became more and more shocked. - Did he? He even did that? Oh my… I should’ve break his… said Sasha so much thoughtful. - Eeeh? You don’t even remember? she stood up quickly. - What? I wasn’t with him all his time… so how can even I know about it? - But what he did to you? - Nothing… he just… did … and I ran after him and beat him… but if I would … - I was talking about… making it with a guy… sorry didn’t want to arrive here… whispered Azami sitting down back on the grass next to her. - Making what? she looked so interested but in the thinking about other things. - …sex… she whispered at her right ear. Hearing it girl just smiled and replied with regretful tone of voice. - Fortunately… no… - Fortunately? No? Why so…? - Eh? How else? …aah… unfortunately was the word… ha ha! Azami was so surprised and in the same time so much glad that her sister although passed through so many wrongs she still was able to make some jokes and even laugh. So she just smiling switched to another subject and asked her to shopping. Sasha accepted and even said she’d drive the car, but there was a special driver for that. In a very short the two get so closer to each other that they already didn’t mind to dress with the same clothes or even look the same. But no matter how much close were they Sasha never cared to call the woman who gave her a birth ‘mother’ because she still blamed her and her way of being for all their family’s troubles. And neither grandfather nor friends of their family, she had no respect for them and never even thought to care about them.
