A Tale of Two Cars Chapter 4Reina couldn't help noticing Sonia trying not to make eye contact with people on the street as the girls drove in search of the sapphire blue sebring convertible. "Sonia? You okay? You've been acting kinda strange since we left" Reina said. Sonia sighed. "I'm just not used to people staring at me in this form the way they are is all" Sonia said. "Try not to worry about any weird looks people give you. They don't know it's you, so it's going to affect your rep or anything" Cindy said, shrugging. "I'm not worried about my rep. I've worn weirder stuff on stage, a few I'm not proud of, most people just don't see me in my wave changed form is all" Sonia said.
Cindy looked up at Reina's rear view mirror before looking to Sonia. "What have you worn that you weren't proud of?" Cindy asked, raising an eyebrow. Sonia sighed again. "Well, it wasn't a concert, but one time, my manager had me on go on a TV show and bungee jump wearing a skirt. I can't tell you how embarrassed I was" Sonia said, blu
A Tale of Two Cars Chapter 3All of us kept our eyes out as Tina drove through town. "Anyone seeing anything yet?" Tina asked. "Nothing here" I replied. "Nothing on my end either" Natsumi answered. "Ummm..." Kelly began. "What? Do you see her?" Natsumi asked, looking excited. "Actually, I was wondering what a Firebird looks like? I haven't read about any cars with that name yet" Kelly said. Natsumi sighed and pulled out her star carrier. Pushing a button, a picture of a red 1993 Pontiac Fire appeared on the screen. "This is the one. This is the one we're looking for" Natsumi said, passing Kelly her star carrier.
Kelly tilted her head as she studied the picture. "I don't think I've ever seen one of these before" she said. "That's really not surprising. You don't see many of them on the road nowadays. Heck, if it weren't for my friend Emily, I wouldn't know what one looked like" Tina said. "Emily? I don't think you've mentioned her before" I said.
Tina sighed as she stopped for a red light. "Emily is my best friend
A Tale of Two Cars Chapter 2The rest of the day went pretty smoothly. We decided that those of us going out to find the two rogue cars would meet in the back parking area of the apartment complex around noonish. Sonia said she would be waiting for us when we got there. We had also decided that Cindy and Sonia were going to ride with Reina, and me and Kelly, along with Natsumi, who I called after Tina requested that someone with a license come along.
I was a bit surprised when Natsumi showed up two full hours before we were going to head out. "So... you think you're ready to do this?" I asked, looked at the leather gloves Natsumi was putting on. "Oh yeah. I've got a score to settle with that Firebird" Natsumi said. "I still don't understand why Tina didn't want me to drive" Kelly said, looking a bit sad. "Aw, it's nothing like that Kelly. I'm sure Tina would love to let you drive her" I said, sitting down on the couch next to Kelly and putting my arm around her. "Then why won't she let me?" Kelly asked. "Well, it'
A Tale of Two Cars Chapter 1At first, when Cindy called telling me that there was a meeting down in Tina's apartment, but I figured there had to be a good reason, so I agreed to come down with Kelly. What really surprised me was seeing Alice and Reina there along with the others. "Hey guys. Come on in. You gotta hear this" Tina said, opening the door and letting us in.
After finding a place to sit, Alice sighed and looked to me. "Okay, so now that you're here, I can get to why we're here" Alice said. "What's going on? Why are we all here?" Serena asked. Reina shrugged. "Search me. She hasn't told me either yet" Reina said. Alice sighed. "Look, we've got what could be a big problem" Alice began. "Today, I got two separate calls, one from Koyuki and one from Megumi, both telling me about encounters with cars with no drivers" Alice continued. "Wait, no drivers? Do you think they were like Reina and me?" Tina asked. Alice nodded. "Yes. Megumi said that Natsumi tried to chase down a red Pontiac Firebird that had no dr
A Tale of Two Cars PrologueIt was a Saturday afternoon as Natsumi stepped out of the house, locking the door behind her. Sighing, she looked at a piece of paper she was holding. "Man, of all the ways to decide who does the shopping for dinner, did it have to be rock paper scissors?" Natsumi said, looking at the grocery list Megumi had given her. Natsumi got into her cream colored Fiat and started the engine. After folding up the list and putting it in her pocket, she pulled away from the house. "At least she gave me the money for the groceries" she mumbled to herself as she drove down the street.
Driving through town, Natsumi slowed to a stop for a red light. A red Pontiac Firebird pulled up next to her at the light. "Wow, an old Firebird! Maybe if I'm lucky, it's a guy driving... wait, what the heck?" Natsumi said, looking into the cockpit of the Firebird next to her, only to see no one at the wheel. Once the light turned green, the red car drove off. "Hey wait!" Natsumi said, pushing down on the gas and pursui
