This "side-story" was created between chapters 16 and 17, but it takes place
4 years before the start of the main storyline. Maytag is only 15 years old
during this storyline. In this title picture, I tried to make her look younger and
a little more innocent. I also tried hard to draw the best title page I have ever drawn,
and I don't know if I fell short. This storyline was created to be a submission for
the Tokyo Pop Manga Contest of December '02. I didn't end up placing, but
at least I tried.
