Kaname awoke to the sun shining it rays through her window. On weekends, Aoi always opened her curtains since light motivated her to actually get out of bed. She sighed heavily and began to stretch but her right arm began to throb as she did so. She winced and brought her arms back down then sat up slowly. She looked down at her bandaged upper arm, a small blotch of dried blood showed through the fabric of the bandages and Kaname reluctantly looked to her sheets where she also saw a little blotch. She sighed and cursed under her breath. There must have been something sticking out of the wall for the cut to be so deep. Kaname decided that she wouldn't ponder upon the possibilities of what it could have been and gathered her sheets together to put them in the wash.
As Kaname left the laundry room she went to the kitchen where Aoi was talking on the phone with someone. She saw Kaname and motioned for her to come to her. "I'll call you back Carrie," her aunt said and set the phone down aftering hanging up. She walked to Kaname and examined bandage. "Gee, it bled through. What in the world did you bump into?" Kaname knew that was a rhetorical question. "Well, if you're planning to go out I'll change you bandages right now." Kaname agreed and soon she had clean bandages wrapped on her arm.
After that was done she jogged upstairs, changed the wheels on her ATs, took her small backpack with her athletic shoes crammed inside, and performed other morning rituals. As she was walking out the door, Aoi called to her, "Kana-chan, remember to check your watch if you come home after dark." Kaname reassured her aunt and stepped out to clear skies and beautiful weather. She smiled to herself. It would be a while before she would meet up with Soji so she decided to go and grab something to eat- the breakfast Aoi made wasn't nearly enough to satisfy her hunger.
