1. Going Home
~ Several years ago ~
She was sitting outside the house waiting for them to return. They were late but she didn't mind. The weather was so nice that she didn't have a problem waiting outside. They should train as much as possible. That's what she was thinking while admiring the flowers that were planted around her grandfather's house. White poppies were her favourite so her grandfather had made sure to plant plenty of them. She heard footsteps and she went to greet the ones she was waiting for, but instead she saw only one of them there.
"Hey Uryuu", she smiled at her younger brother and then looked past him searching for the older man, "where's grandpa?"
He didn't respond, he only shook his head. Only then did she realise that he was pale and that there were tears running down his face.
"Uryuu, what happened? You scare me!"
"He's... he's dead, sister", he cried.
She felt her knees go week and moments later she fell on the ground, her eyes wide and teary.
