RinxLen Story Chapter 4
I Just Found out I'm Addicted to You
Chapter 4: What if the aliens have her?
I was doing my homework when all of a sudden I heard rushed footsteps that sounded like skipping? I also heard a voice singing something that I couldn't quite understand. Whoever it was, was nearing my door. Wait a minute Skipping + Singing= Yowane Haku.
