Ryuko looked at her reflection in the mirror. She sighed as one of the many maids of the house knocked on her door. "Come in..." she muttered. The maid came in and bowed. "Miss Ryuko, the other guardians will be arriving soon. Your parents want you to get ready." Ryuko looked at the maid and nodded. "Of course..." She stood up and walked to her closet. She pulled out her favorite black and gold kimono and smiled sadly. "Watch me finish what you started, sis..." she mumbled as she pulled on the silky kimono. She slipped on the necklace which the Phoenix sleeps in. Ryuko looked out her window to see the beautiful cherry tree losing some of its petals as the wind blew. "Let's go..." she mumbled as she opened the door and left her large, lonely room.
