Disclaimer: like usual... Ushio Tora
and Co. are a (c) to Kazuhiro Fujita... Sorceress Zeba, her brother Zallcos and the Shape shifter is mine, please note that
I am crazy and you don't have to believe what I mix through this fic... my recipe is simple, a little humor, a little corny,
a bit of craziness and maybe a tiny bit on naughtiness...
night sky glowed beautifully with the sparking diamonds in the sky... a single shadow in the night ran quickly as another
orange shadow ran side by side with a long cloud of black hair, cat slitted greenish-purple eyes glowed in the faint moon
light, the other with silver slitted pupilless eyes with a faint thunder bolt crackling colors of white and blue, both shadows
chasing a silhouette with glowing golden eyes, a giggling laugh and a splashed color of dark purple... the purple shadow sprung
away after throwing an exploding thing at the two hunters... and odd light enveloped the place before every thing went into
dark... gray clouds darkened the sky, slowly creeping and blocking the moon light...
Silence... "mew..." a soft voice
breathed in the faint light, a pair of wide silver eyes blinked once...
Morning sun rose over the horizon showing
the early light of morning... autumn leaves in brunet and yellow crunched with the humans feet walking to their work and schools...
in a cretin path, we see the usually temple boy with the spear on his shoulder walking silently towards the school...
Ushio!!!" cheered Asako with a flat hand smacking his back...
"Ouch! Oh-hi Asako!" tiredly stated the temple boy, sleep
lightly clear on his face...
"Hey! What's the matter? Out hunting too long with Tora again?"
"Um, (Yawn) yeah... if
only that was it!! God, I hope I don't fall asleep during class again!"
"It looks to me like you would!" Asako said brushing
a way a short lock from over his forehead "god you look beat Ushio! What kind of beast were you fighting??"
you once school is over... the damn thing is still back home..."
"Asako! Ushio! Good morning!!" greeted
Mayuko, ocean gray eyes and a smile on her face, but then blinked the temple boy "Oh-Ushio, what's the matter? You look awful!"
"I can see that!" pause looking around "I see Tora haven't joined you this morning, eh Ushio!"
he wanted to come, but dad and I convinced him that he shouldn't!"
"What do you mean?"
"I'll show you after school!"
(the school bell rung) after school then..." stated Asako walked with her friends into their school...
"Shigure??" a childish voiced sweetly and softly called...
"Yes?" answered the priest,
busy reading the morning paper...
"Can I have a chocolate chip cookie?"
"You had a whole box this morning Tora!"
a twany little orange beast with pupilless silver goo-goo-eyes and a tiny little nose, small but fluffy mane and two short
lines on his cheeks pleaded softly, short dark orange tail flicked "can I have just one more??"
"No! Your teeth might hurt!!"
"Pretty please with sugar lumps on top??"
puppy-dog eyes blinked once pleading, a cute little smiles attached, placing his twany none-clawed orange fingers on the humans
crossed legs, chin resting on the human's thigh, tail flicked a few times...
"..." Smiling with a light frown, the priest
craned to the twany adorably looking little beast pleading with cuteness all over him... the ancient orange beast was now
merely almost a five year old, no claws, no sharp jaws, no muscles!! Nothing but fur, skin and bones... and a bit too nice
and pure minded/hearted and too fragile/delicate to be even thought of a beast...
"Please??" twany Tora childishly asked
once more, a cute smile crept as the priest softly smiled to him, chipmunk cheeks widely smiled hopefully...
sugar would make you hyperactive! Besides! You had 12 pieces an hour ago! Too much would hurt your tummy!" reasoned the priest...
"Um... how mush is 12??" the twany beast curiously asked...
"How far can you count?" softly asked the priest, placing
the paper aside...
"Umm..." looking at his thin fingers counting... "One... two... four... five!!" showing a flat hand
with tiny nails on each tip, finger parted, the twany beast smiled proudly... although he miscounted his thumb!
Count them again Tora!" softly suggested the priest...
"...?" Confused, looking back at his fingers, he gave a guess "four?"
the human shook his head "five??" the man shook again "um...?? I dunno!"
"No! They are five and you got them right, you
just forgot to say a number back while you counted!!"
"Oh??" looking back at his fingers, the twany beast eyed the human
holding his fingers helping him count...
"Now... count with me..."
"Okay!" smiled the little beast, eyeing his fingers
following the priest, the beast counted "one... two... four..."
"No!! There is some thing between two and four Tora!"
"..." Thinking, "I don't know what it is!!" the beast stated, tail tucked...
"It goes like this...
one, two... 'Three'... four, five!! Five fingers on each hand!!"
"Oh-Three!! I knew that!!" meekly said the beast childishly
and sheepishly smiling...
"Of course you did!" responded the priest "now, you have five fingers on each hand, how many
fingers do you have on two hands?"
"Five and five equals... what?"
"..." Thinking while counting his fingers
constantly "um, two fives?"
"Two fives are a ten Tora!" the human smile "so [5 + 5 = 10] understand?"
"So five and five
are ten?" the priest gave a nod "how much is twelve then?"
"Twelve is a ten, but with two more fingers!"
on his hands?? (Giggling) that's silly!! Even Oni's have more than two fingers! And they're just rusty armor and bones!!"
"Very funny!" chuckled the priest messing up the little beasts mane... craning around, the priest was attending to go
back to reading...
"When will Ushio come home? I'm bored!!"
"He'll be back as soon as
school is over!"
"Why couldn't I go to school with him?" with sad eyes, the beast asked with a heart broken voice "I just
wanted to be with Ushio!"
"Ushio couldn't take you here Tora!"
"Because (Thinking *light bulb*) he is
busy battling evil teachers who torture them with lots and lots of home work, sit on solid un-comfortable wooden chairs, listen
to dead-boring lectures, (murmuring 'like the lectures Ushio said I do to him!') Make them eat awful cafeteria food, and forcing
them of doing push ups all day!!"
"Oh!" frightened, the tiny beast replied, head ducking between his shoulders, tail tucked
"is that why he took the long poky stick with him?"
"The spear? Um, yes! To protect him self!!" said the priest with a
chuckle "Now would you be a dear and play out side Tora? I would like to finish the morning paper in time to carry on to the
"Oh! Okay!" smiled the orange beast as he paced towards the slid door and slid it open...
stick?" the priest lightly chuckled whispering to him self picking up the paper, then craning to the tiny beast...
the twany beast cover his eyes from the heat and strong rays of sunlight, the little beasts fur shimmered with light as he
paced out... as a shrunken-into-a-child thing, the ancient orange beast had lost his abilities and most of his adulthood knowledge,
even the cursing... Tora couldn't help but be the child he was... although it accrued to the priest that the little beast
did do a few things while being a child that he didn't remember learning... like having a bite out of his sons tender part
this morning, on effort of trying to wake him up for being late for school... cutely eyeing then chasing a passing butterfly
that landed on a long grass in their temples back yard, the twany beast couldn't even remember how to pounce right and ended
up falling on a few dandelions... pouting, he puffed them away, the little beast went back chasing the butterfly with cute
little cat like growling...
Back at Ushio's school, the bell rung announcing the end of school ...
you're saying Zeba did it again, but this time, she didn't just shrink his body, but mind as well?" asked Mayuko and confusion...
"Yeah!" the boy groaned "Too bad she didn't shrink his damn teeth along with that!! The smaller they are the more they
hurt!" scolded the boy feeling his sour ass, sitting on the wooden chair, in the empty class with no one but him-self and
his two female friends...
"KAWAII!!!" squealed Asako "I've always wondered how Tora could be if he was a kid! I bet he's
"Well... yeah, he is... kind of!" lightly smiled the temple boy... standing up, he picked up the spear and
his bookcase "oh-and by the way Asako! No need to put ice down my shirt again okay?"
"Oh (blush) sure! It was the only
way to keep you from falling asleep Aotsuki Ushio!! Sorry!!" =^.^= '
"..." With a smile, the three of them walked out...
scolded Zeba eyeing her self in a mirror "I look awful!!"
"I think it fits you right Zeba!" scolded Zallcos, legs crossed
on a light purple velvet sofa, picking dainty a chocolate bun and slowly eating it with tea "I told you that you shouldn't
have trusted that dumb shape shifter of yours to deliver that youth spell for grandmother's 2500th birthday! I knew he would
get it wrong!"
"It was never shifters fault Zallcos!" scolded the sorceress, adding beauty cream to her delicate pale
cheeks "how was he to know the lord and that human boy were going to be there hunting??"
"Why were 'you' there then, O'
dear sister of mine??"
"!!! O__O () umm... I had my reasons!!" sheepishly said the young milky tanned pixy...
the young sorcerer sung wickedly...
"Oh!!" Zeba groaned, "I just wanted to know if shifter was going to get it right or
not, all right? I never knew the lord was there either!" explained anxiously the young female, faintly blushing...
know..." softly stated the young man "shifter is still hurt for you yelling at him last night!"
"He is??" she asked awkwardly,
her brother gave a nod "oh-the poor dear!"
"Why wouldn't you comfort him if you feel such pity?"
"Well, I would, I
just ...!!" she snapped, craning around glaring, the female blinked a wicked smirk on her brothers face, a single golden lock
of hair danced in front of his sight...
"O__O|||" blinking in start, the young male knew he had just make a HUGE mistake...
"Now that's better! Off for my hot shower!!" wickedly smiled
the pixy walking towards her room...
"Quack!!" in irritation, stated the angry... duck??
happily cried the tiny beast dashing a run to his human friend after seeing him walking up the temple stairs, climbing on
the temple boys feet almost stumbling him down the temple stairs, but was supported back to right position by the females
behind him, wrapping his twany orange scrawny arms around the boys neck "welcome back!!" cheered the young beast "did you
battle any evil beasts? Did any bad teachers torture you? Did you fight with big bullies? Did you get alotta homework? Was
there good food? Did it taste good? Was it fun there? Are you gonna go there again?? Did you see any thing exciting there?
Huh-didja-didja-huh??" the small beast excitedly asked all so quickly and in a few quick breathes...
"Mostly, yes!" smile
the boy chuckling, placing a hand on the beast's arms on his neck carefully...
"Oh!! Did they hurt you?" Tora purely asked...
"No they didn't! Cause I f***ed them up real good!"
"Um, what's a f***?"
"Ushio!" softly scolded Asako...
Mayuko just giggled...
"...!!" shy, the little beast had no memory of the two females, so he hardly made a sound as
he slowly tried to climb down the boy...
"Welcome back Ushio! Hello girls!" the priest said softly...
"Hey dad..." murmured the boy, as his father carried the little beast in his arms with a smile on his
face "so? How was your day with Tora? He didn't cause any trouble did he?"
"Oh-no not at all!" the priest smiled widely
"Tora was as sweet as an angel!" then looked down at the beast in his arms curled on his back like a middle-sized orange fuzzy
"..." With a shy smile, the beast just ducked his head between his shoulders, tail tucked...
boy blinked the beast, then craned around seeing his two friends and understood what was wrong "um, Asako, Mayuko, just a
note, now that Tora is just a kid again, he doesn't remember you!"
"Oh?" Asako was a bit surprised...
"Um, Hi Tora!!"
smiled Mayuko walking to him in the priests arms "I'm Mayuko!!"
"...H... hi!" shyly and faintly answered the tiny fellow,
dark orange tail flicked once...
"Oh-ain't he just the most adorable thing you have ever seen?" whispered Asako, lightly
blushing placing a hand on her cheek...
"..." Silent, dark orange tail flicked once more...
"Tora!" softly stated the
boy; brushing a tiny white lock form the beasts face "it's okay! Asako and Mayuko are friends!!"
"Friends?" he whispered
back, the boy gave a nod "um..." silent, Tora couldn't help but to hold on tighter to the priests shirt as the harsh voiced
girl came closer to him...
"Uh-h-hi!" he answered in shyness and start... blinking once, eyeing her soft
"Gee... Tora seems nervous!" said the boy rubbing the back of his neck...
"I can tell!" replied
the priest... looking down at his arms, the adult human shifted the tiny beast down and left his orange feet touch the ground...
"Uhh!!" nervous, the beast hid behind the priests legs, shyly peeking at them... dark orange tail flicked again...
Asako couldn't help it, as the small beast was actually 'shy' of her and her friend...
"How cute!" stated Mayuko, crouching
down a little, skirt tucked under her knees, bookcase in her lap, reaching a hand for the small beast "hey Tora! Come over
here, wont you?"
"...?" Eyeing her human hand stretched out for him, the beast looked up eyeing her, her ocean gray eyes
locked with his silver pupilless eyes, a shy little smile crept on his face before dashing an embarrassed run back into the
"Oh-Geez!" loudly chuckled the boy "Tora is such a wimp!!!"
"Ushio!" softly scolded Mayuko "he's just shy!"
Kind of like 'you' when you were a kid!!" wickedly stated the harsh voiced girl, then grinned in victory eyeing her friends
"W-what? Me? Shy?? Don't be ridiculous Asako!" pouted the boy scolding with a frown, his face and ears
Form a window, the tiny beast peeked his little head, long flat orange ears perked, eyeing them as the two
girls waved 'bye-bye' before leaving... Asako seemed beautiful and nice, and Mayuko looked lovely and sweet... but in a way,
the tiny beast felt like he liked Mayuko better, why? He couldn't tell... after a short while the temple boy went up stairs
to slip into some thing more comfortable as his father attended to his household work...
"Oh shut up!!! I'm fed up with your loud irritating voice Zallcos! Hmm... maybe I should've transformed you into some
thing more quiet!!"
"Oh-what is it now??"
"Of course you don't believe I'd
fall for that now, do you??"
"Um... you 'do' have a point there!!"
"Honestly, I say..."
"No!" smiling wickedly,
the pixy watched the duck/brother as it slammed its head against a wall, as a few feathers flickered off...
pleaded the duck crawling on its knees...
"Sorry Zallcos! I gotta go check on my little angel! I wouldn't want him to
get hurt by that mean temple boy now would I??" walking off, the sorceress smiled leaving her duck/brother bashing his scull
against the wall...
"Quack!" cursed the duck with every hit... what ever the curse was!!
It pays to be 'children
safe' dose it not??
"..." Walking towards her room, placing her tender part on the comfy soft velvet sofa, legs crossed
after slipping off her sandals, resting a fist under her chin, the young female simply smiled as she cast a spell to turn
on he magic mirror, eyeing that cute little orange beast, legs stretched out, back hunched up, fists under his chin, with
a wide smile on his face giggling, dark orange tail flickering, sitting on a puny cushion in the living room watching 'Kodocha'
[the episode where Naozumi and Sana leave town to shoot the movie pictures!!] "Aw-he's looks so cute!" the pixy exclaimed
lightly blushing, silently watching the tiny beast enjoying the show...
Sit up straight!" softly scolded the priest...
"But I like it like this!" dark orange tail flicked once...
sit straight Tora! Your back my not hurt now, but it might hurt later!"
"Oh... okay!" replied the young orange beast then
fixed his position...
"And you're too close to the screen! Back up a little!"
"(Lightly with a frown)"
groaned the little beast, dragging the cushion a bit back then eyeing the priest, who shook his head, so Tora dragged it a
bit more, the priest shook his head again, dragging in just a wee-bit more, the priest gave a nod... quickly jumping, the
tiny beast giggled as the cushion gave a 'puff' sound and went back into watching TV...
"..." With a smile, the priest
went up stairs towards his son...
"Aw-F***! F***! F***!!!" T___T X
"Some thing the matter
Ushio?" the priests softly asked, he knew his son was doing homework and probably got confused in some question...
is so confusing!!! What is it with the 'positives' and 'negatives' in every thing??"
"You only use them as basics Ushio!"
it's so f***ing confusing dad!!" growled the boy, pencil over his ear, a band tied up tight around his head "I think I got
a headache!" groaned the boy feeling his scull...
"Probably tied the band too tight!" smirked the priest "come down and
rest your mind! Take a brake!"
"Sure..." murmured the boy, un-tying the band placing it aside, gripping the spear then
placing every thing aside ready to go down...
||Oh! Hello Sana!!||
||Oops! I guess she wasn't
going to call her mother! C'mon Rei, lets go and let her have privacy!||
[A/N: I don't know Rei's
girl-friend name in original, I've only seen it in Italian, sorry! XO]
||I just wanted to call to see how every thing was
"Hey dad!" greeted the temple boy, then craned to the young beast in the spur-of-the-moment watching
"Hello Ushio!" smiled the priest, greeting back his son from the kitchen...
"What a zombie!" chuckled the
boy shaking his head, eyes off the orange beast, then walked to the kitchen for a mug of tea...
"..." With a cute little
smile, the tiny beast was keeping all his focus on the show...
"Hey! I guess even as a kid, Tora thinks TV is amazing,
eh?" chuckled the boy, then craned back to the young partner, taking a sip of his mint-tea...
"I guess so Ushio... I just
hope he doesn't get obsessed over it!! Now that he's a child, it's pretty much possible!!"
"Maybe it would keep him away
form 'me' that's all I care!!"
"..." After sip of tea, he looked up to his father "Yes?"
"I never thought
I'd end up saying this to you Ushio, but..."
"Now that Tora is merely a child, I want you to treat him not like
an old shrunken partner, nor like a beast!"
"What do you mean dad?"
"I mean... treat him as if he was your little brother!"
the boy squirted out his drink "Dad! You gotta be kidding me!!" the boy mumbled whipping the liquid from his face with his
"I'm not kidding Ushio!" firmly stated the priest "Tora is going to share the room with you, if he ever
gets hurt I'll hold you responsible, and you have no right to punish him in any way, if does any thing wrong leave it to me
and I'll handle it, and if I'm away, I want you to be nice with him and don't be mean or nasty, understand?"
"Do-I-make-my-self-clear!!!" stated the priest...
"YEAY!!!" cheered the little beast "Ushio is gonna be
my big brother!!" happily cheered the little beast again, yet hugging the temple boys leg "O-we're gonna have so-much-fun!!!"
exclaimed the tiny orange beast snuggling the boys leg...
"..." Startled and a bit ashamed, the tiny beast really seemed
happy with that idea while he didn't like it, the boy craned back to the priest who only smiled and gave a nod...
thing go well too Ushio!" smiled the priest...
"But dad! I don't know a damn thing about how to take care of kids! Defiantly
not Tora!!" he whined "He wouldn't listen to me as an adult to listen as a kid!" growled the boy...
"Ushio! I'm just a
kid! I'm not an adult yet... I can't be an adult until I'm a kid, right??" curiously asked the tiny orange beast...
a way, yes! That is how it goes!!" murmured the boy...
"Hey!" squealed the tiny beast "Would you play with me now Ushio??
"No!" firmly hissed the boy...
"Ushio!" softly sung the priest...
whined the boy looking desperate...
"Why not?" disappointed, the little beast asked tugging the boy's pants "play with
me!!!" Tora softly demanded...
"No..." hissed the boy softly more to him-self than to the beast... fists on his knees,
back hunched up, head between his shoulders, frowning, eyes glaring, lips twitching as his fangs showed, and a huge red pounding
X over his head, spear propped on his shoulder...
"Ushio..." softly said the priest "play with him for now, cause it's
going to be his nap time in an hour!"
"But I dun-wanna nap-time!" whined the little beast hugging the boys leg...
having it ya like it or not twerp!" wickedly smiled the boy...
"Ushio! No-name calling!"
time later, somewhere else...
"Oh-Tora was so cute!!!" giggled Asako as she and her friend walked to the
temple side by side...
"Yeah! I never thought he could get so shy! Do you think Ushio and Oji-san could handle it?"
yes!! Ushio, I wouldn't bet on that! I mean Ushio hardly liked Tora when he was an adult! Don't you think that now since he's
nothing but a helpless little cute beast he might turn evil on him or some thing?"
"Oh-I hope Ushio doesn't! If Tora ever
turned back to normal, he might remember the things Ushio would do to him, and that wouldn't be such a good idea..."
"Remind me to thank Zeba!!"
"I've always wanted to know how
it feels to have a mini-Tora around! I owe her one!" wickedly smiled Asako...
"..." Softly smiling, the two girls walked
up the temple stairs, only to eye the temple boy looking exhausted with a broom stick and the spear hardly keeping him self
"Ushio?" surprised from his view, Asako gasped, "what's the matter?"
"Uhh-h-huh?" the boy tiredly stated
"o-oh! H-hi Asako! Hi Mayuko!" he hardly breathed...
"Ushio you look tired! What happened?"
"Oh-n-nothing... I was
just... forced... on playing with Tora and... the little maggot wore me out... I'm exhausted..." panted lightly the temple
boy growling before letting go of a yawn "and I haven't finished my home work yet... I've got so many tasks to finish" he
whined, "I never thought a 'hyperactive' Tora who is 'high in sugar' could be... such a pain!!!" the boy concluded...
"Oh-dad took him inside... for his nap-time..."
"I think I'm gonna catch some zee's my self!" dragging
him self off, "Tora is in the living room if you want to see him..." the boy hardly walked up the stairs towards his room...
"..." Asako said nothing...
"..." Mayuko said nothing as well...
"What do you
say we be good friends and help around the house work?"
"I'm sure Ushio would like that!"
"C'mon then! Let's ask Oji-san!"
can we??" excitedly asked Asako as soft as possible, trying her best not to wake up a peaceful little twany beast sleeping
on a cushion in the living room, sprawling on his side, the priest had his hand laid on the little beasts side keeping him
comfy... the tiny beast mumbled a few slurred up words in his sleep that made the girls giggle...
"I guess it wouldn't
hurt!" softly said the priest "but I have to warn you! Tora had made quite a mess!!"
"Hey! I can take any thing you throw
at me!!" proudly said Asako...
"Um, how 'messy' is it?" softly asked Mayuko...
maybe not every thing!!" desperately breathed Asako eyeing the mess in front of her "Geez! I've seen a 'dump' more clean than
this!!!" craning around to the priest "no offence!"
"None taken!" smiled the priest, arms folded behind his back "are you
two sure you want to do this?"
"No prob Oji-san!" smiled Asako widely placing a hand on her arms stretched muscle "Mayuko
and I can handle this! Besides! Ushio never cleaned his room to clean 'this' place up!!"
"Oh-you've got that one right!"
chuckled the priest as he walked off "if you ever need me, you'll find me in the living room!"
"Take care and
please do be careful!"
"We will!" smiled Mayuko eyeing the priest walk away...
"Yeah! We'd better!"
like the wind... that's all I feel... I feel so free, so wild... I breathe and smell the fresh air in my lungs... I feel the
sensation of battle... I feel it so good... so wonderful... a feel my soul so light and soft... I feel my chest so warm and
"Huh??" snapping from the need of sleep, the boy eyed the tiny beast sprawling over his chest, planked
"..." Silent, the tiny beast was with a cute little smile, listening to the human temple boy's heartbeats,
yet fast asleep, mumbling under his breath while sleeping...
"F***? What-who-why... here??" the boy lightly grumbled to
him self, but then bit his lips not wanting to wake up the sleeping child... 'Aw-damn! How am I suppose to wake up some thing
so damn cute and adorable??' with a faint smile, the boy couldn't move, until the bedroom door opened...
"Oh! So that's
where he went!" softly murmured the priest standing at the door "sorry Ushio! I never thought he'd come here!"
the boy whined, "would you please take him off??"
"..." Slowly walking to the twany beast, the priest held him softly and
tried to pull him up, but it seemed that the little fellow was clutching to the temple boys shirt really tight...
the boy lightly growled, head plopping on his pillow...
"If I move him now, he's probably going to wake up Ushio!" stated
the priest resting the tiny beast down again...
"F***! Forget about it dad! I'm way too exhausted to think about it!"
the boy slightly growled flicking his arm over his eyes needing sleep...
"..." Mumbling, the tiny beast nuzzled the boys
chest making him squeak blushing...
"Sh**! That tickles!!" feeling his chest, the boy found him self placing a hand on
the little fellows soft, thick, warm and fuzzy mane...
"Umm-hmm..." the little beast mumbled snuggling even more, tucking
his head under the boy's hand...
"Uhh!!!" they boy moaned, then eyed his father who only shrugged...
"I'm afraid you
have to rest like this Ushio! I can't move him!" said the old human...
"Sigh... fine!" resting his head again, all what
the boy wanted was sleep...
After two hours... later...
"There! It's as clean as... as..."
"What's between Ushio's ears!?" snickered Asako...
"Asako!" softly scolded Mayuko taking off the apron, placing aside
the feather duster...
"Kidding!" looking at her wristwatch "Geez! Has it been two hours already?"
Might as well check on Ushio! He should've had enough sleep by now!"
At Ushio's room...
squealed the two girls...
"Hush!" softly scolded the priest "you might wake them up!"
"Sorry!" said Mayuko; ocean gray
eyes shifting towards the temple boy with the tiny beast snuggled between his arms like a doll...
"Have you ever seen
them so close?" asked Asako blushing, eyeing the tiny beast nuzzling him self under the temple boy, who is --for once-- not
In the mirror made of magic, the sorceress giggled blushing, and a glass of scarlet dirnk in her hand (don't
go too far away thinking! Okay? It's simply strawberry juice; I hate wine and alcoholic drinks! So none of my chars would
drink it even if they want too... Kyofu is in the top of the list! [Kyofu: Hey!! Why me?! -=___T- X] what ever...)
Stick to the story!!" Zeba stated craning back to the mirror after taking a sip of her drink "horny author..."
I murmured, "any ways, back to the fic...
The young pale, milky tanned skinned sorceress reached a single finger towards
her magic mirror as she smiled... after a pause, she heard a slight thud against her door... shifting her head with a pair
of glowing yellow golden eyes, the pixy slipped on her sandals and walked to the door, only to eye her duck/brother with starts
and planets orbiting/spinning around his head...
"Okay!" she groaned, one hand cupping her hip, the other resting on
the doorframe "what is it this time??"
"Quack!!!" the duck quickly duck behind her velvet dark purple dress in fear...
"Wha~??" craning around, she saw her shifter blinking her oddly, then shrinking down in shame and fear "Shifter! What
do you think you were doing?" she harshly scolded, "This is Zallcos! It really ain't a duck dimwit!"
"..." Sight dropping
to the floor, the shape shifter gave no sound...
"Huh??" in startle, the young female shifted back to
the shape shifter "Shifter..." she softly breathed "I... I'm sorry... I didn't... um, sorry about last night!" she lightly
blushed with a slight shamed smile "your... not still upset at me... are you?"
"..." Looking up at her, the shifter seemed
to actually feel better, slowly showing a faint set of smiling teeth, bloody red eyes shimmering like a cute little puppy,
the cloud shifted towards her wrapping it's self around her feet, going around and around, crawling up little by little...
"How-sweet!" she blushed lightly frowning looking back at her room "okay knock it off before I take back my apology!"
she growled when he reached under her molds...
"...!" Stopping with a blush --that was clear on its black face-- it shifted
down and a few inches back, and transformed into some thing like a black little ball in front of her...
"Now, be a good
little beast and go play with the shadow demons till I'm done, wont you?!" turning around, "I have much work to do! C'mon
in Zallcos! I wouldn't want to end up with a dead duck of a brother!"
"Quack!" irritated, the duck stated...
funny!" she chuckled eyeing the duck walking funny into the room, eyeing the shape shifter she gave a wave and a smile before
slowly closing the door...
"..." Still blushing, the shape shifter craned around after transforming into a lizard-like
creature and walked away towards the darkness of the sorceresses dungeon...
At the afternoon... about
"Tora! Stop nibbling on the spoon!" the temple boy scolded as they all were in the kitchen...
"But I'm HUN-GRY!" whined the little orange beast, both hands clutching a spoon in his mouth, crushed under his tiny teeth,
sitting on the kitchen table...
"You just ate half an hour ago!" the boy growled...
"But I'm still hungry!" the spoon
screeched under his teeth...
"Gimmy that!" eyeing the spoon "AW-SH**!! It's got your teeth marks all over it!"
the little beast almost sobbed cause the boy yelled in his face...
"Sorry! SORRY?? Well like Sh** Tora!!! Sorry-is-not
going to fix the spoon back to it's old self now would it!!" the boy harshly growled...
"(On the edge or tears, curling
around him self, gasping and sobbing)"
"Ushio! It's only a spoon!" reasoned the priest, busy washing dishes...
"I remember you ruined stuff more valuable when 'you' were younger!" calmly said the priest, putting the dishes
in place then drying his hands...
"...!" Blushing, the boy said nothing...
"Stop picking on him, wont you!"
sorry... (Still trying to hold him self from gasping and lightly sobbing) I didn't mean it..." the little beast couldn't help
but to brake up into tears crying like the child he was...
"Aw-f***?" startled and with a 'huge' sweat drop, the temple
boy never thought the fragile little orange beast would actually do that...
"Oh-now you've done it!" scolded the priest
walking to the little beast trying to calm him down...
"Oh-c-C'mon Tora! I-I'm sorry! I didn't mean to yell at you!! Honest!!"
"(Still gasping and sobbing)..."
"I think he needs a hug!" softly stated the priest...
"Uhh-huh??" blushing hard,
the boy had ugly thoughts "No-ho-way!!!" taking a few stapes back, the boy froze as the tiny beast sobbing went worse...
softly sung the priest "saying you sorry is not like showing it!" with the little fellow in his embrace, the priest walked
to his son standing at the kitchen door attending to escape...
"Aw-dad!" embarrassed, the boy gave a groan...
touch him Ushio!"
"(Lightly gasping and sobbing still)" with silver pupilless eyes, the twany beast craned to
the temple boy, still sniffling and gasping with sad puppy dog-eyes, head resting on the human's chest, tiny hands clutching
the priest's shirt needing to feel safe...
"Ho-all right!" grumbled the boy, slowly reaching a hand and merely touching
the tiny beast on the head "I'm sorry Tora!" he mumbled then quickly drew back his hand, giving a sigh, they boy tried to
make things better "now then, what would you like to eat?"
"Sniff... I-I'm... I'm not hungry any more... sniff..." faintly
speaking the little beast still sounded a bit frightened of the temple boy, one tiny hand clutching harder to the priests
shirt, while the back of the other rubbed his eyes trying to whip away the tears...
"Well-tch-FINE!" annoyed the boy turned
around with a jerking head "I'm late on doing my home work any way! No thanks to you~!" the boy hummed irritated stomping
his way up to his room, spear in hand...
"Ushio!" the priest lightly growled frowning...
"Shigure..." with a sad
voice the orange beast stated, "why dose Ushio hate me?" a single tear rolled down the orange fur, the two ancient black lines
on his cheeks drew down with the teardrop...
"..." Flicking away the tear, the priest just gave the tiny beast a hug "Ushio
doesn't hate you Tora! He's just not used on having some one like you around!"
"..." Snuggling his face in the human's
chest, the priest sat in the living room, lightly comforting and cuddling the crying little beast...
"It's all right...
once Ushio calms down I'm sure things are gonna be just fine Tora... you'll see..."
"..." Still lightly sobbing, Tora
closed his eyes and tried to stop...
"Why-I Ought-To..." growled hissing the magic dwelling pixy
as her fist cracked it's knuckled on the cushion near her, faintly missing sending a knock on the noggin to her duck/brother...
"(Phew!!)" The duck whipped away a sweat drop with a flicked wing, only to be sent far slamming into the wall by being
plopped up by the cushion...
"I-cant believes that human temple boy!!! And they call me cruel!!!" the stated annoyed "did
you see the way he treated poor cudly-wudly-cute-little-baby-Nagatobimaru!? OHH!" she groaned, face turning purple in anger,
magic shooting every which way crackling like thunder from her finger tips...
"...(Gulp!)" The duck forgot about the bump
on his head and watched his sister dwelling into her secret path...
"I am going to settle that boy 'once-and-for-all'
Dammit!!!" she hissed walking into the darkness "I'll be back soon Zallcos! Watch the little pip-squeak for me!" she growled,
then oddly snickered chuckling "I am going to raise a little hell down that damn temple!"
"..." With a sweat drop, the
duck/brother knew nothing was coming but trouble...
There is nothing worse than women revenge... and that as if they
were humans... so what kind of horror would happen if they were possessing magic?? O___O||| there goes the neighborhood...
I-am-bad!!! Aren't I?? (Grins wickedly, while shaking hands with the devil him self! Then kicking his sorry ass back to hell!!)
chapter two coming soon... so till then, R&R people!!
