Kawaii Chan P.O.V Kawaii waited at the bus stop after leaving the house, only just hearing what Katelyn said, she was tempted to go back and finish the cupcake... No, she had to see Zane. The bus came and she went in "where you goin' today sugar?" Kawaii Chan smiled at the man "kawaii Chan is going to the hospital" she said, giving the man a few dollars "please take a seat" kawaii Chan nodded as the bus driver tipped his hat at her, and they started up the road Zane P.O.V Zane felt the wheel chair go over a bump and into the air-conditioned hospital, he shivered, hearing doctors speak, kids crying and adults grunting, groaning and moaning made him nervous, thinking he had to look proper, he sat up straight, instantly regretting it, his back cracked and the nurse laughed "you know, you don't have to be fancy to be at a hospital, right?" Zane sighed "well it sure felt that way" the nurse laughed again, not responding though, then he heard running footsteps behind him, slightly screaming, then a voice "Zane kun!" He realised who it was, "k-kawaii Chan?" Kawaii Chan laughed "of course it's kawaii Chan, silly!" He bit his lip "okay.." he felt himself going over another bump, probably his hospital room, "uh, Zane, you'll need to get up to get on the bed, though you can't see, you think you'll be alright?" Zane shook his head "no" someone took his hand "kawaii Chan can help!" He realised kawaii Chan holding his hand, but he knew he was okay, it was kawaii Chan, he would be safe with her, he realised he was muttering "miss, you're blushing, are you alright?" The nurse said, and kawaii Chan giggled "I'm okay"
