T.L.S.: The Meek Shall Inherit
"Hikari II tires of eating bugs and meat, and wants to ingest more life energy, so it suggests that Shohei should kill Orin so that it can eat his soul," said Ronette.
"Hikari temporarily gets amnesia and Orin convinces her that he's her boyfriend," said Crystal.
"Shohei comes into Orin's office to kill him, but it backfires, leading to a chase and the Sharks' end at the pier as Orin and Sango confess their love for each other," said Chiffon.
"That was part one of the finale, and let's get commence with part 2!" the trio said in unison.
THE MEEK SHALL INHERIT
At the pier, it began to rain heavily. Shohei was watching as the Sharks have died. As their souls begin to rise out of the water, he runs off towards the flower shop, being chased. When Shohei arrived, he opens Hikari II's jaws as the Sharks' souls end up going in the plant's mouth to be promptly eaten.
"Mmm... Piranha's soul is too sour! Unagi's is bitter, but not bad. Sango's tastes peachy! And Orin... his soul ta
My name is Kazama Shohei. I'm 16 years old, and now a junior student in high school. Last year, I bought a strange plant named Hikari II, named after my sweetest Hikari-chan. Over the year, the plant has grown and helped me out with difficult situations, but once it got too big, I had to leave it at Mr. Sonoda's flower shop. I stopped feeding it life energy, its primary source of food, and it from now on eats bugs and meat like any normal Venus flytrap. Today, things were calm. Not much business, but we're still going strong.
A sobbing Mrs. Kotsuzuka comes in the shop.
"My dog got hit by a truck and died. Can I buy some lilies?"
"Aww... no problem, Mrs. Kotsuzuka!" said Hikari.
"Thank you, dear," Mrs. Kotsuzuka said with a sniffle. "That was the 3rd dog I had this month that died."
Hikari grabs some lilies and wraps them up.
"Thank you, that'll be 2,000 yen."
"Worth every penny. Have a nice day."
Mrs. Kotsuzuka receives her lilies in exchange for 2

What is the world coming to? I know I can be unlucky sometimes, but this is ludicrous beyond belief! Okay, ladies and gentlemen, I'll abridge what has happened in my life. I'm Kazama Shohei, 15 years old, now 16 years old as of a few months ago. About a year ago, I bought a plant to save the flower shop and win the heart of Hikari. The plant's name is Hikari II, and it feeds on my life energy in order to grow, but when I got so tired, it had to eat bugs and meat like a normal carnivorous plant. However, time after time, Two-chan would get the craving for life energy, and believe me, this has helped me in a few sticky situations, but one summer night not too long ago...
The story goes back to what happened last.
"G'night, Two-chan," said Shohei as he places his hand on the plant.
Hikari II perks up and says, "G'night, Shohei!"
Just then, Hikari II got a little bigger, teeters, and falls off the desk.
Hikari II says with a newly-deepened voice, "Hey Shohei, I got a g

THE HOT SUMMER DAY
It was a sunny day in Tokyo. No, really. It's a hot day because summer began not too long ago that year. Today's date is July 23rd. The mailman puts the mail in the Kazamas' mailbox.
Shohei steps outside to get the mail.
"God, it's hot out here! I feel hotter than a hawk claw pepper!" Shohei groaned.
Hikari comes by and says, "Hey Shohei."
"It's so hot, that Mr. Ogata just doesn't feel like teaching today. The principal, on the other hand, wanted to go to Sapporo where it's cooler."
"So there's no school today?"
"No. I'm burning up, can I please come inside?"
"Of course you can!"
The two of them go inside to get some lemonade and head upstairs to Shohei's room. There were 3 fans running in the room.
"I didn't want Two-chan to die from the heat, so I turned on all these fans."
"But Shohei, Venus flytraps grow in hot environments, remember?"
"Oh yes, that's right. So, I guess to keep us cool at least."

One morning in the spring, the city is painted with the glow of the morning sun and the pink color of the cherry trees. The breeze wafts cherry blossom petals all around. A petal ends up riding on a breeze that rolls gently into Shohei's bedroom window. Shohei was sound asleep in his white tank top and blue boxers, smiling. Apparently, he was dreaming about Hikari. However, his sweet dream was rudely interrupted when the petal landed by his nose, making him sneeze himself awake. Shohei then picks up the petal.
"A cherry blossom petal..."
Shohei peers out the window above the headboard to his bed.
"Wow... the cherry trees look so beautiful today..."
"Onee-san!" Reiko shouted.
"Aah! Reiko, please don't do that!"
"But today's your birthday!"
That's right. Today is April 18th, my birthday. I'm 16 years old now, just a bit younger than Hikari-chan, who turned 16 on February 22nd. I plan to take her out on a date and look at the cherry blossoms.
"Meet me downstairs! I ma

One morning at school, blushing girls are putting chocolates and love notes in the boys' lockers. Shohei watches as this happens.
"Valentine's Day. Girls show affection by giving a boy they love some chocolate," Shohei thought to himself. "I've never had been given chocolate as a gift from Hikari before... but what if she doesn't like me as much as I like her?"
Just then, Hikari walks by in the hallway.
"Can't talk now, Shohei. Sorry."
"But today is Valentine's Day."
"I'm a little busy right now."
"No questions! See you in class!"
Shohei lowers his head and sighs. He thought to himself, "Why won't Hikari talk to me? Maybe she doesn't care about me... No! She can't possibly hate me! That's silly."
Once class started, Shohei walks up to Hikari.
"What is it exactly you're busy with?"
"I can't tell you."
"None of your business, Shohei!" said Natsumi, who butts in. "This is a girl thing!"
"Hey Natsumi, have you got some

"Hatsuyume, the new year," said Ronette.
Crystal said, "The holiday involves dreams."
"If you dream about an eggplant, a hawk, or Mt. Fuji, you'll have good luck on the year you dream of any of those," said Chiffon.
And in unison, they said, "However, on the eve of this Hatsuyume, Shohei isn't so lucky..."
One morning at Shohei's house, Shohei is lying in his bed, not looking so well. His mother, wearing a mask over her mouth, holds an oral thermometer.
"39.4. Well, it looks like you have a fever. All you can do today is rest," his mother said. "I'll go make tea now. A good 8 cups will flush out your illness and reinvigorate you as soon as tomorrow morning."
With that, she leaves.
"I suppose you can't feed me today?" Hikari II asks.
"No, I might make you sick," said Shohei weakly.
"No, you have a human illness. I'm immune to those. But seriously, feed me!"
"I'm too weak. If I try, it might take longer to recover, or even worse, I might die."

"It is snowing in Tokyo," Ronette said.
"Everyone is singing karaoke," Crystal said.
"And they're eating cake!" Chiffon said.
"In other words, it's CHRISTMAS!" they said in unison.
Christmas is right around the corner, and the flower shop employees get a well-deserved break at a hot springs with their closest friends. Since they are of opposite gender, a wall is put between the mens' side and the womens' side.
"Aaah~ I really needed a nice dip in a hot spring after working so hard," said Shohei in a content manner.
"Yow!" shouted Daisuke, who just got in. "It's so hot! And now... oh yes, that hits the spot!"
"I'm like a potato swimming in a delicious stew!" said Makoto.
Just then, he notices something in the wall: a small hole. Shohei, whose sense of nobility is questionable on occasion due to being a hormone-addled teenager, peeks through it to watch Hikari bathe.
Shohei thought to himself as he blushes, "What am I doing? I shouldn't be watching Hikari bathe! And yet...

One night at the jailhouse, a jailbreak ensues.
"Stop them! They're escaping!" a guard shouted.
The prison guards try to stop 3 escapees, but they get beaten up by them. One had a flowing black mullet and reddish brown eyes. One was really tall and had auburn hair with long bangs covering his eyes. And one was the opposite sex of the other two, with magenta hair and blue eyes.
"We did it! We've successfully escaped! Orin-sempai is going to be so proud!" the escapee with the mullet said.
"Duh, we are great!" said the dumb tall escapee.
"We aren't out of the woods yet, boys; security is tight," said the female escapee.
As more guards try to surround the escapees, Orin busts in on his motorcycle.
"ORIN-SEMPAI!!!" the escapees exclaimed.
"Piranha, Unagi, Sango! Hop on, quick!"
The gang ride off on the motorcycle.
"You know, it's funny," said Orin. "I usually have to go in there and bust all of you out, but you 3 managed to do it by yourselves. I'm proud!"
