Kuro: Glimpse

Kuro sighed, walking towards the Headmistress' office. Mrs. Pumpernickel had found her during lunch, and demanded another meeting with Moto.

She really hated Kuro's guts.

Kuro had just been waiting at the door when a very attractive male student ran past her and pushed it open, breathless.

"My sister, Akiko, her familiar is trapped on the other side of the River Mist, Miss, and the Headmaster wasn't in his office-"

"Then there's no time to waste," Moto said matter-of-factly, grabbing her deep purple cloak, "Let's move."

Kuro ran along with them out of the building, pulling her hands out of her pockets and calling upon the winds to lift them rapidly towards the forest.

The Headmistress gave little reaction to the flight but Akiko's brother waved his arms around a bit at first before realizing that he was safe. 

The three continued to scan the forest zipping by below them and were quickly upon the river, Kuro dropping them a yard above the grassy banks.

She remained hovering, the windstream causing her sapphire locks to whip around her pale face. 

"Akiko?" she called, her voice not projecting very far.

It took a moment but she managed to see a strange looking tree on the other side of the river, and a glimpse of reddish-brown fur that was comparable to that of Akiko's familiar and, only a moment later, Akiko's voice drifted towards them.

The wind strengthened and Kuro flew across. 

The End
