~*~*~*~*~ Sequel chapter five *~*~*~*~*~
"Yawn!" Ushio woke up feeling drowsy and tired, remembering
where he had been last night, Ushio felt guilty for not being able to help the female... "God-please, if it was to be that
you'd grant only one wish, I wish the kid would make it..." the temple boy whispered... slowly walking to the bathroom, taking
a hot shower then heading towards the dinging room for breakfast... listening to light laughing and chatting, the boy figured
out that the new guests have probably made it... "Good morning! Sorry I'm late!"
"...?" They all craned to him...
one of the samurai skeletons breathed "the Beast barrier!!!"
"Whoa!!!" it's partner replied, both eyeing that long black
thick cloud of hair, purplish-green cat slitted eyes and the spear clutched into his twany human hands...
"...?" Lady Siren
eyed the female Oni, as she seemed to blush, the two samurai skeletons were frozen solid, not knowing what to do... then a
sound of walking came by...
"Oh-I am so sorry I'm late!" a woman with long golden hair, sky blue eyes walked in wearing
traditional Chinese clothing, craning to the boy, her eyes widened as she gazed at the spear "the... beast lance??" she mumbled...
"...?" Ushio gazed her, though she was human, she knew of him??
"Michel!" the woman called "guess whom I found!" she
"Lemmy guess, another beast?" a man with a red beard, mustache, and a cap tilted to one side of his head,
lightly chuckled, then froze eyeing the boy "Kid??"
"What the Hell/F*** are you doing here??" they both
asked each other with a single voice, then broke into a hugging chuckle...
"Is it him?" the golden haired woman asked...
Betty-Su! This it Aotsuki Ushio! The beast lance user I told you about!"
"Michel!" the boy softly stated, "who is she?"
This? Oh!!!" the red headed man blushed chuckled "this my boy, is my future wife!!"
"Pleasure to meet you Ushio!" Betty-Su
smiled extending a hand...
"I don't get any of this, do you?" one samurai skeleton asked his partner...
shrugged)" with a huge sweat drop...
"(Blushing still)" the female Oni smiled with a dreamy face eyeing the temple boy...
"May we finish this wonderful occasion some other time! It's time for breakfast!"
"Sorry Lady Siren!" the boy breathed
"I gotta go check on the others first! I'll skip breakfast!"
"Are you sure?"
"Hey-kid! Join us!!!"
love to get to know you better!"
"No I'm afraid I cant!!" the boy calmly said as he walked out "I'll be back soon, bye!"
the female Oni whispered waving a hand "Oh-wow! Have you ever seen any one so handsome? And so young??"
"Sister, get a
life!" one of the skeletons mocked taking a sip from his drink, only for a feminine mallet to swat his head...
the female Oni craned and began her meal...
"I guess Ushio isn't gonna meet Ashley then, eh?"
"Let's hope he can help,
I really want to find her a mother!"
"Don't worry baby! I'll make sure every thing goes just fine!" the red headed man
said as he wrapped a hand around his loves waist, holding chop sticks with a sweat drop "now, would you remind me how to use
"(Giggling)" Betty-Su smiled showing her love how to do it...
"I just hope this idea of mine actually
works!" Ushio thought as he dashed a run through the forest, spear in hand humming softly for its beholder...
back of wicked memories...
I remember it there... in that cold silent room... nothing but cuffs and cold,
heavy, vile metal things over me, holding me against that silent hard bed... that piece of leather over my muzzle... those
humans in white clothing... every time they come with those odd things they press into me... they hurt so horribly, I cant
hold back to need to cry... they attack my most precious parts for what they call experiments... in that place they call a
lab, they take my liquid which they call DNA and mix it with various stuff... they create lives from me, merely nothing but
infants, but only so they can kill them later and study them... they cut me for blood, sting me for tests, the shave my fur
for checking out what I am... it was merely a miracle that I made it out of there... that female with the golden hair visited
me every day... she looked just like Elena, but she seemed older... after a while when she was stopped from visiting me, I
still remember that night when she fought with the fat guy's brother... he kicked her out and demanded not to see her or make
her come near me... she was the only one who cared... after that... when they decided to transport me to another lab to carry
on with their tests... that plane-ride was my freedom ticket... when I met every one... got back my family... and I am grateful...
"Maybe you should get some rest?"
"Would you like
me to take it to the family cemetery and bury it tomorrow?"
"No... I'll do it..."
"No you've been through enough! I'll
"..." The female refused to handle her mate the infant in her arms, hugging it with tears dwelling on her face;
her crimson bangs shaded her face as she sobbed...
"Kage!" the male held her by the shoulders, turning her around embracing
her tenderly... they thought the child was gone, they both knew that there was no way it could've survived, but the heart
of the mother she was still pounded restlessly...
"..." Eyeing it once more, placing a tender kiss on the forehead, the
female whispered prayers asking the mighty, one and only, merciful God to grant her this one single wish... and to let this
"(Sobbing lightly)" both said nothing...
"I'm so sorry thing ended up like this!"
"It was never your
fault Muma..." Kage breathed...
"I love you..." Muma softly said kissing her on the forehead...
"I love you too..."
the female breathed 'I only wished if it was nothing but a bad dream...' she thought, closing her eyes, the female rested
her head on her mate's chest, her hands scrolling on the child's non-furred body, lightly rubbing it...
puts his mercy is the most un-thinkable creatures... some thing moaned in weakness... eyes barely opening a crack... the heat
around it helped it survive... it was more than just warmth, it was a creation God blessed all with, but we never knew it
is there... it was love...
Out side, it was morning...
"Morning Tora!" the light
brown male greeted, still a bit shabby...
"What ever..." the ancient orange beast grumbled, shooting a glare at the boy
as he sprawled on his side on a huge clear bolder...
"Morning!" Yami greeted walking out of the den after the young male
"good morning Tora!"
"..." The orange beast said nothing, dark orange tail lashed a few times with what seemed anger and
"..." Ann slowly paced out looking half awake "morning..." she whispered...
"Ann!" the male called comforting
her "I told you-you should stay in bed!"
"I'm okay Jiaaku! I need to check on mom..." the female hardly breathed wobbling
her steps towards her parents den...
"Ann!" Jiaaku was going to stop her, but Yami spared an arm on front of him asking
him to let her do what she wanted...
"Ann has to clear thing up on her own Jiaaku! Understand..."
"Sigh... I understand..."
Tora sighed and laid back his head, eyeing the two beasts eyeing him calmly, Yami walked back to her den while the young male
sat back on his hunches waiting for his female friend...
"Tora!" the young male called, yet not turning to the elder
"...?" Tora hadn't moved, and merely opened his eyes a crack...
"Do you really think it died?"
"...?" Craning around, the young light brown male eyed the orange ancient beast calmly gazing away, then shifted
from his position on his four legs, leaped off the bolder pacing away "where are you going?"
"A little walk!" Tora answered,
then paused and craned his head a bit to the younger male "care to join?"
"Uh-h-huh??" Jiaaku mumbled, looking around him,
it didn't seem like the orange beast meant to talk to any one else...
"Maybe later! I wanna make sure Ann is
"I see..." the orange beast lightly smiled as he trailed off lightly chuckling...
"Geez! What's so funny?"
the younger male felt offended, but didn't want to think about it...
"Jiaaku!!!" the golden female called as she dashed
out of the den "Jiaaku!" a wide smile was on her face "it's alive!!!" she panted...
"What is?" stupidly asked the male...
baby!!! Yuji's alive!!!" she smiled "he wasn't dead! He was just a bit knocked out from the cold weather!"
the male, a smile wheeled on his face...
"Where's Uncle Tora?"
"He went that way, it was less than a minute ago!"
TORA!!!" the female cried running towards her favorite uncle...
stopping in his tracks, the boy saw the ancient orange beast walking his was absent-mindedly "Tora!" the boy called...
morning!" the boy panted, "any news?"
"It's dead brat! There is no use hoping for any thing better!" the beast hissed with
anger and in the need to F*** out some thing, and since the boy was the only thing near him Tora was attending to make a wicked
"UNCLE TORA!!!" Ann cried, tears wheeling on her face then blinked the temple boy "Oh-USHIO!"
the matter?" Ushio asked in start...
"It's alive!! The baby is alive!!!"
jerking their faces to each other, the two of them dashed a run back toward the dens... making the female spin around her
self like a tornado, dizzy, Ann cleared her throat before running back after them, but before she did, she saw the black beast
walking slowly towards him... it was Kyofu; silent and cold face the same... but not for long...
"Kyofu!!" Ann cried
not being able to hold back the good news...
"...?" Shifting his head up, the black old male drew in a breath, not knowing
what the female wanted to say, so he ducked back a small thing attached to the back of his forearm...
at the inn...
"No I'm afraid he hadn't returned yet sir! I'll tell him as soon as he arrives! Good day!"
Lady siren gave a sigh... it was Shigure asking about his son... it has been his sons last day and he should've been back
by the time he called...
"Ashley!!!" a voice softly scolded, "I thought I told you to stay in the room!"
the innkeeper didn't remember any other guest, so walking to the door, opening it, the old lady saw a fury little female beast
"...!!" the little female was as high as the old lady's knees... her fur was white and grayish silver, eyes
with a faint splash of green, everything was white but the light color of crimson on her forelock and blackness darkening
on her fingers, like black gloves on her hands, her hands till the wrists were lightly morphing black, and her fingers were
the darkest of them all, long sharp black talons on every single finger tip...
"...?" Lady Siren froze... the little female
was glaring her...
"Oh-I am so sorry! This is Ashley! I hope she gave you no trouble!" the golden haired woman stated lightly
bowing and picking up the female "you naughty girl! C'mon! It's your nap time!"
"..." The female said nothing as she laid
her chin on the golden haired woman shoulder as they walked away... eyes fixed on the startled innkeeper...
Lady Siren whispered, "They look somewhat like Kage's!!!"
"Ashley! Baby! Where were you??" Michel softly scolded "you
had mommy and daddy worried!"
"I found her playing with the plants down the hallway!"
"Aw-such a curios little girly
aren't you?" said the red headed man scrolling his fingers on her sensitive body tickling it...
"..." Shifting with a
smile, the little female eyed the two adults as they sat side by said chatting, as her mother/human tucked her into bed...
"..." With a bashful smile, the female shifted to one side ready for sleep...
Giving a sign for
her man, the woman stayed with the young child till she slept soundlessly... after making sure of it, Betty-Su walked towards
the next room to talk to her man...
"Michel... how sure are you that this Kage demon is who I'm looking for?"
I saw the labs records! I'm sure it's her!! I'm not sure where Kage lives, but I know we have to return Ashley to her! Either
that of figure out a way to help out that white one from the labs!"
"What if she didn't accept Ashley?"
"I know Kage!
She took in Jiaaku even though they weren't related... I'm sure once we explain every thing for her, she'd be more than happy
to take in Ashley!"
"What if Ashley doest accept leaving us and living with her?"
"We'll have to do it the hard way
then! Before Mackenzie find us after we escaped with his precious 'lab experiment'!!!"
"You don't mean..."
I do! If he find us before we get to Kage, Ashley would be dead!! Just like all of them poor little other ones that never
got a chance to live!!"
"Parting with her is some thing I never dreamed of doing..."
kissing his woman on the check, the two humans hugged lightly...
Why is it that there are so many things
in life that we cant explain??
"Aw-how cute!!!" Yami softly said "but his fur is going to grow after three
or four days Kage! Although he is too weak, it a miracle he survived... you have to take good care of him! He hasn't passed
the red light zone yet, so tell then, you have to keep him warm!"
"Oh-you can bet on that!" Kage breathed as she fed her
child... there in her arms, she felt the blessing around her... then felt heat burning her face as every one gazed at her
"um, would you all be kind and leave?"
"Aw-C'mon Kage!" whined the boy, his twany thin fingers feeling the soft bare skin
of the infant "just a little longer! He's so cute!"
"..." With a light hidden smile, Tora said nothing, and settled by
eyeing the little one feeding, and the golden female being hugged by her friend...
"Ushio!" you can visit us soon, after
his fur had grown, okay?" Muma smiled, arms on his mates shoulders...
"I guess..." Ushio smiled "oh-I cant wait to tell
"..." Ann smiled widely haggling her friend, then shifted towards her light brown friend resting his head
on her, yet eyeing the baby... with a dreamy smile, she said nothing and went back watching her little brother...
so happy thing have ended up well!" the black beast stated smiling...
"Oh?" Kage mocked "why don't you two mates have
"=O.O= Us?" Yami asked...
"-=_O- ;;; Kage!" lightly whined growling, the black beasts voice was lost
"-^____^- Kidding!" the light brown female giggled "but who knows? You two might end up having a girl,
and she would end up being Yuji's mate!"
"Female!!!!" Tora whined "we don't even know if he's gonna make it out of the
red-light zone or not!" dark orange tail lashed "I mean look at him! He's pale! He doesn't seem to be doing so well!"
Uncle Tora!" scolded Ann "I'm sure Yuji would make it! Right Jiaaku?"
"Sure! There is no way I'm letting 'him' die, and
you can bet on that!"
"...!!!" the temple boy's stomach protested... "O___O|||"
"(Cracked up chuckling and laughing
his head off)" Tora just couldn't help it!
"Maybe you should go back and get your self a meal Ushio!" softly suggested
the light brown female holding back a giggle...
"Err, yeah! (It protested again) Aw-Sh**! I got it all ready!" the boy
lightly punched his stomach...
"..." Muma said nothing, holding back the need to laugh...
"Just... one thing!" the temple
boy stated calmly "Kage! I've been thinking of some thing!
"If... if I used the spear, wanting to help Yuji,
would it do?"
"...!" Blinking, the female eyed her mate...
"Ushio!" firmly stated the dark brown male "the spear only
kills! It doesn't help a beast survive! It takes souls, not give them!"
"Oh-Geez! I meant no harm!" O___O;;
breathed the light brown female; her mate craned to her "remember that time... when 'I' used the spear on you?"
remember! When that wacky Samurai Skeleton Oni attacked us!"
"Oh-yeah! You mean the F***ing-mere-sh** of an a** ho** who
killed my old group?"
"Mind your language!" -U__U- X
"Err, sorry dear!" -^.^- '
"Yeah! Besides! It was 'my' group
Muma! I was the leader!!" corrected the black beast, dark red tail lashed a few times...
"Of-course!" -^___^- '
way, when you were hurt, I used the spear, and it healed your wounds, didn't it?"
"Somehow... yes, sort of!" pause, eyes
in yellowish-gray locked with a smiling ivy green gaze "Oh-no!! No-ho-way!!!"
"It's only a single chance!"
the spear blew him up to particles??"
"How do you know?"
"I'm sure the spear is not all evil Muma! It
helped once, why not again?"
"It's not a person Kage! It's a-a-a... a thing!!!"
Protesting, the spear started humming
loudly, lightly bolts of thunder crackled lightly on it's shimmering tip, Ushio held it tight and focused, as it slowly calmed
down and stopped, they all eyed it, Tora shot his silver eyes wide open, maintaining him self, he shot a glare to the dark
brown startled beast...
"You got it mad dimwit! The spear is defiantly 'not' and I repeat, NOT a thing! You can be
sure of that!!!"
"...!!!" startled, the dark brown beast eyed his mate, hugging her infant protecting him "you okay?"
yeah, Yuji's okay!" the female almost lightly panted...
"..." His mate though of her child before her self, this child
may mean to her more than what it means to him...
"Sorry about that! I don't know what happened to it!" Ushio softly mumbled
"It's okay..." smiled Kage, and then looked down at her child, lightly moving, moving his head around,
with a shy-full smile, the looked back at the others "would you all mind? I'd like some privacy!"
"Okay!" breathed Yami,
as she followed the rest out side...
"Kage! You weren't serious, were you?"
"About the spear?" he gave a nod "yes!
"But... what if-"
"I have faith! I have a feeling that even if it kills, it only kills to protect... besides!
The spear doesn't kill! Ushio uses the spear to kill! The spear it self has no power! So if Ushio want to use it to help,
then it might have a chance that it would help!! And another thing, Yuji is only a child! He's not evil! The spear only kills
that who possesses evil!! Right?!"
"I guess..." Reasoning to that, the male said nothing, and simply settled by hugging
his mate and carefully scrolling his careful fingers on his child body...
"..." Giving a weak moan the child moved his
head, yet eyes not open his toothless mouth exposed yawning...
"..." With a smile from both, the two mates hugged once
"..." Ushio eyed the den once more before craning around and standing face to face with
the ancient orange beast, drawing in a deep breath "yes?" the temple boy asked calmly...
"Aren't you suppose to be back
at the temple by now? Your three days are over!"
"Oh-yeah..." sighed the boy "I completely forgot!"
"Yeah! Not forgetting
the fact that school is starting after three days any way!" the orange beast concluded mocking...
"Aw-Sh**! Did you HAVE
to remind me?" T___T X
"(Wicked smile) don't mention it!"
"Grrr..." spear ready, the boy was focusing on a direct-ancient-orange-beast-scull-hit
"Ushio!" breathed the ancient orange beast...
"...??" the boy snapped his eyes wide open, the beast had
just called him by his real name, not his nick/tag name...
"Want a ride back home?"
my... luggage is still back at the inn!"
"Might as well go get it then, right?"
"Y-y-yeah! I guess!!" the boy slurred...
Tora was --for his point of view-- acting odd...
"Are you coming for a visit soon Ushio?" Ann asked...
next week or so! Why?"
"Well, if so, you might be back soon enough to see Yuji after his fur has grown, right?"
long dose it usually takes?"
"Well, mom told me that it takes three days for it to start growing, and it took me two weeks
for 'my' fur colors to grow/show completely!!"
"..." Tora slipped away, leaving the young golden female talk
to the temple boy... eyes calm and slitted, the beast felt like leaving...
"Tora!" the young light brown male called "where
are you going?"
"No where..." the beast slurred with a calm voice, still trailing down a road...
"..." Jiaaku eyed the
beast still he vanished, then felt a soft touch over his shoulder, craning around, the young male saw the tanned female smile
lightly before walking after the orange beast, her mate, their leader the black beast, eyed her as she followed the ancient
beast, yet Kyofu said nothing...
"..." Kyofu craned back to the young golden female talking still to the temple boy who
seemed to be really into this 'why-when-how' thing about children with the female...
"Kyofu!" Jiaaku softly said whispering
to the black beast "was it just me, or was there some thing wrong with Tora?"
"He's just feeling lonely, but has too much
ego to admit it Jiaaku! He'll be fine once he gets a chance to hang around Yuji! Don't worry!" lightly smiled the black beast,
calm yellow eye blinking once...
"Oh..." craning to his golden friend, Jiaaku thought back a little about his request for
her, she seemed to have completely forgot, maybe she didn't want to think about it, with a sigh, the young beast walked towards
his thinking spot, needing to be alone... 'Although she would make a great mom!' thought the young male...
this is boring!" annoyed, Asako said as she gazed out of her bed room window "I wonder how Ushio is doing!"
Asako! Dear, it's lunch time!"
"Coming!!" brushing her clothing then walking towards the door, Asako gazed once more at
the window "I wonder what they called the new kid..." after a pause, she gave a shrug and went down stairs...
"..." Mayuko was reading a book silently when she gave a sigh and looked out side her window, putting down
the book, the girl walked to the window opening it, then gazed at the cool breeze blowing softly... arms folded, she couldn't
keep out the view of the slitted eyes, the sound of that grisly chuckle, the smell of that musky fur... she gazed down, then
closed her eyes "I really hope Ushio gets to make him change his mind... I'm beginning to miss Tora!" she breathed feeling
lonely as she eyes the falling snow...
In the temple...
"..." The priest was silently using a shovel shoving
away a huge amount of snow from the doorway... whipping his forehead, the old man looked up and wondered when his son would
return... after a pause, Shigure couldn't help but think of the new child... 'I wonder how Tora is going to handle it!' the
human thought as he carried on his tasks...
he??" growled the temple boy, as he stood with his luggage at the inn's out-side-doorframe...
"I'm right here dummy!"
softly chuckled the orange beast, perching on the boy's shoulders, dark orange tail flicked once...
"Aw-sh**! Get of me
Tora!" hissed the boy swinging around the spear, missing the leaping beast...
"(Yelp)" -O____O-;;; "what the hell is wrong
"..." Doing nothing but hiss, Ushio didn't answer that question...
"What ever (shrugging) anyways... would
you take a cab or go with me?"
"...!" Startled, the beast really seemed to be true when he asked the boy if he needed a
ride... with a faint smile, the temple boy calmed down "it's only one suitcase! The rest of the weight would be me!"
you like me to 'cut' it out for you?"
"Do that Tora and I'll 'cut' off your tail!!"
"Uhh (tail tucked) what ever..."
turning around "move your butt brat! I don't have all day!"
"Yeah, what ever..." chuckled the boy, perching him-self of
the 'oh-I missed it so much' long soft warm, thick, thick orange furry mane, hands gripping tight for a good sense, nuzzling
his face into the beasts back, smelling the musky fur, feeling it's softness, suit case leash over his shoulder, spear gripped
in his hand...
"..." Feeling the boy doing that, the beast gave a pout, but said nothing... clearing his throat "you ready?"
the boy mumbled, "too bad I can't stay any longer! I really wanted to get to know Yuji better!" he concluded...
luck next time brat!" the beast chuckled "hold on!" concentrating, the orange beast leaped up sky-wards as he flew...
Ushio thought that the beast would do a run then fly, but he was only a bit startled that's all, eyeing the sky as they flew,
the temple boy could hear the beast's heartbeats pounding rhythmically, echoing through his mind...
"..." Tora craned the
corner of his head just to see the boy dreaming away in his thoughts, with a faint sighing smile, the beast said nothing,
speeding up a bit, wanting to reach the temple before it got really hot, not forgetting the fact that they were still in winter...
Back at the beasts den...
"..." Silent, the light brown female cradled her sleeping child in her arms, with
a smile, her head tucked under her mate's...
"..." Muma said nothing...
"Thank you for granting
"It's not me Kage! It was God's blessing!"
"Yes! Your right!!" eyes closed, the female just wanted to feel
it once more...
"Huh?" craning towards the golden female as he sat silently in his
thinking spot, the young light brown male was startled at her call...
"Sorry! Did I scare you?"
"Oh-well... a little!"
slightly smiled the young male...
"..." Drawing in a deep breath, the golden female eyed her friend "Jiaaku!"
"I thought... about... what you quested... a while ago..."
"And I really have to tell you this..."
would love to be your mate but..."
"I'm just not sure if this is right!"
"I mean... you and me!"
Ann... I don't understand!"
"Jiaaku... I really want to be your mate I'm just..."
just not sure if this is the right time!"
"You know! Mom is busy with Yuji and she probably might need some
one to help her look after him! Besides! If you and I became mates, we might end up moving some where else and Yuji and I
wouldn't have a good chance to get to know each other!"
"I remember once, mother told me that... the first five
years of a child life determine his future, so I really want this to go well!"
"Please understand Jiaaku!"
"..." The old black beast eyed them, he heard every thing, as he said nothing, soundlessly walking back
and thinking about this subject... Kyofu had a faint chuckle trying to seep out, only as he saw his mate waiting for him at
their den did he let go of a little of it...
"I see you looking happy today!" Yami smiled...
"..." Widening his grin,
the old black beast walked to his mate, softly nuzzling her...
"Yes?" softly sang asking the tanned female "what do you
have in mind?"
"Jiaaku had asked Ann to be his mate!" calmly said the black beast...
"... Huh??" eyes wide open, the
female eye her mate "say again!"
"Jiaaku and Ann might be mates!"
"But maybe not at the current time!"
"Ann wants to help her mother look after her child!"
"Yes"-breathed the tanned female "Kyofu! Are you sure of
"It's the only thing I could think of! The herbs are all I had in mind!"
"But we still need the last thing,
if only you'd remember what it was!"
"Sigh... I just wish if I remembered what it was! It's all been so long!"
softly whispered the female, sitting up nuzzling her mate "it's okay, I know you'll tell me as soon as you remember!"
only I could!"
"Well-well-well! It seems to me the new cute copal is getting together, eh?" smirked the light brown
"Kage!" startled, Yami felt her face burn "you know it's not nice to stare!"
"Sorry =^o^= it's just that
you two looked so 'cute' all snuggly-cuddly-wudlly like that!"
"Not funny Kage!" hissed the black beast...
you doing out side the den?"
"Oh-I needed some fresh air, Muma is looking after Yuji right now, he's napping..."
I think you'd better make your walk short! Like a said, I'm not sure how long Yuji would survive if not taken care of the
"I know Yami! I just need to move my legs and get my butt off that bed! My back is killing me!" softly reasoned
the light brown female, then widely smirked "besides, it's not like you're the one who--"
"Kage!!" growled the tanned
female "DON'T--you dare finish that sentence!"
"...?" Confused, the black beast eyed the brown female walk away laughing,
as his mate sat where she is lightly growling, tail lashing... blinking once, he had no clue...
"..." Pouting, the tanned
female craned to her black mate "do you think we should tell her?"
"About the medicine?"
"No-I mean about Jiaaku and
"O-I have a feeling she already knows Yami!"
"You think so?"
"Yes! Besides! I think she'll be happy for the
thought of having another child running around calling her 'granny' right?"
"Why Kyofu! I never knew you had such a sense
"Thanks to you, it got revived!" the black beast softly smiled nuzzling his mate...
"I just remembered some thing, I need to go ask Lady Siren about the herbs, she might have some!"
"Would you like me to join?"
"Not necessary! I'll tell her about what we have, I'm sure she'll be able to
figure out what's missing! As an innkeeper and a relaxation specialist, I'm sure she can help!"
"Take care!" softly stated
the black beast, eyeing his mate leap away...
"See you later!"
The feeling it so warm...
I'm happy I decided to take this choice, and do the adventure of my life... you were always there for me, and for everyone
we ever knew... even when things went bad and it seemed like there was no way out, you showed me the way... that dark world
I was trapped in after the loss of my eye... I know what hope means when you believe in it... and when you believe in God,
and have faith in all what happens... with all my heart, you are my one...
breathed, eyeing a few black machines the human race call 'cars' confused, the tanned female saw a few humans with black clothing,
black things on their eyes, long metal sticks with a trigger thing on their fingers, and standing like guards for a king or
"Sir!" a man in black clothing ran out of the den panting, "it seems that they have known our mission, they
have escaped through the forest sir!"
"You dumb-a**! After them!" a man growled as he was listening to the man in black
from--(man in black? O.o? [Pause] XD never mined!) behind the darkened glass...
"...?" Confused the tanned female
hurried into the inn, after the humans in black had their guns ready and drove away into the forest, only to see the sheer
mess the humans have done, and Lady Siren as slowly picking up bits and pieces of shattered things from off the floor...
With a frown, yet tears were dwelling down her face, the old lady seemed terribly hurt... her long gray hair spared out of
the bun, dangling over her shoulders reaching her waist, her silk dress lightly messy with dirt of ashes, the walls full with
cuts and cracks, all the places beauty accessories were demolished to dust, rugs thrown and ripped off and doors broken, windows
"Lady Siren!!" cried the tanned female, holding her lightly by the shoulders and comforting her "Oh-I am so
sorry for not coming any sooner, I am so dearly sorry!" Yami slightly and softly nuzzled the old lady, who drew in a deep
breath, craning around with a faint smile on her face...
"Thank you child! But I really must tell you this!"
were two humans here, a red-headed man and a blond woman, they both a had this child beast that was your type!"
helped them escape, but I don't know how long it would be safe for them, I need you to help them... hurry!"
you going to be all right?"
"I'll be fine! My other guests have went with the two humans for protection, help them, there
is no time!"
"Yes Lady Siren!" with a sigh, the tanned female skipped away towards the deepest part of the forest, hopping
to get to the two humans in time...
"Oh-merciful God, please, protects them!" the innkeeper preyed as she was sitting on
her legs... a single teardrop rolled down her face only to land softly on her silk traditional Chinese dress...
Head swung back with a startled glare, Kage eyed around her as she heard the sound of gun shots echoing across the forest...
standing at her den's entrance, she hesitated in entering, feeling the need to check what all the noise was about...
Muma called, walking out of the den "what was that?"
"I don't know!" she responded craning to him "how's Yuji?"
okay, he's still asleep right now!"
"I see..." craning back, crimson tail lashed a few times...
"Kage!" the dark brown
male stated, "you go look after Yuji! I'll go check on the commotion! I'll be right back!" was all what the male said as he
kissed his mate softly on the cheek and skipped away...
"Take care..." breathed Kage, slowly walking into her den... looking
up at the sky she sighed "I wonder what the two knuckle-heads are doing!" she smiled before she vanished...
"OUCH!! Watch it Dammit!"
"Me? You watch it you dumb-a**! You almost crashed us in that
"If you would've shut the F*** up I 'may' have concentrated faster to dodge it! You talk too much!"
"Well 'this' is what I think of your conversation dummy!"
"(Cursing under his breath)"
"Tora?" groaned the boy...
"What?? I didn't say any thing!!!" reasoned the beast... flying fast
across the sky, finally reaching the temple...
"Finally! Home sweet home!"
"What ever..." murmured the beast as he
softly landed his feet on that cold snow... looking around as the boy stepped off the beasts back, the orange beast saw some
thing "hey brat!! What's that thing on the stone wall?"
"Huh??" craning to one side, it was a bad paint job in green blue
and red, with a little paper attached to it with a sticker... walking to the paper, Ushio plucked it out opened it then gave
an annoyed groan...
"What is it brat?"
"It's from dad! He went down town and he wants me to clean up this mess by the
time he comes back!"
"..." Ushio lightly craned to the beast eyeing the temple calmly, then drew in a
breath and turned around attending to leave "Tora!"
"Since you're here! How about if you give the girls a visit?"
later! I have a few things I want to clear out back at the dens!"
"Well now, that's none of your business any
more now is it?!" the beast mocked as he walked a few steps, leaped over the rooftops and eyed the city for one last time,
then with a faint smile, Tora craned around back to the confused temple boy looking at him from the back yard "are you going
to be alright with out me around, brat? Or should I worry about some other beast trying to eat you?"
"Oh-shut your crap
Tora and get your butt of the temple Tora!" hissed the boy... really wishing that the beast wouldn't leave...
I guess I have to leave then, eh?" growled the beast "I'm off!" was all the beast said before leaping over the stonewall and
running off fast...
"Tora!" Ushio reached out a hand wanting to stop him but... he had no reason, dropping his hand down,
feeling lonely again, the boy craned to the mess on the wall, annoyed he kicked the wall as he cursed it and walked into the
temple cursing, as he searched for water and soap!
"Stupid brat... I hope he takes good care of him self... though
I doubt it!" the beast chuckled as he ran on the soft snow through the forest, heading back towards his new home, but heartedly,
missing his old one, giving a sigh, the beast cleared his mind and with a single leap, flew skywards towards the dens...
day is with you... the other... it might be against you... time is a circle with good and bad... you must taste sweet and
sorrow... nothing is the same no matter what you do... to your heart it's always the same... as long as you are true...
the golden haired woman with some thing wrapped in cloth in her arms craned to her man "did we lose them?"
"I think so!"
Michel replied, then a gun shot missed his shoulder by a hair hitting a near by tree "RUN!!! Their still on our tail!!!"
Betty-Su shrieked running with one hand gripped by her man as he dragged her running, the other holding the cloth tight over
the shoulder like a cradled baby...
"This way!" the female Oni called giving them a sign to a boat at a riverside with
the two samurai skeletons on it; Yami was a bit behind keeping the humans busy...
"Michel!" breathed the golden haired
"Every thing will be fine Betty! Go ahead to the boat! I'll follow you later!"
"What? I can't leave you!!"
You have to get Ashley to safety!"
"..." After a single tear formed in her eyes "don't you dare
die on me Michel! You'd better come back!" she scolded as she ran off scolding...
Faint ivy green eyes of a child eyed
it's human father behind as she and her mother went to the boat and the two samurai's stroking away, head lightly peeking
from under the cloth, her faint ivy green eyes widened at her mothers tears as if... her father is never coming back... the
little white female beast couldn't help but to leave the tears form in her eyes feeling that some thing was missing...
on the other side, the female Oni stayed with the tanned female --who never knew Michel-- and the red-headed man fist fighting
a few humans in black clothing... but suddenly when things weren't going good as they were loosing, this big hung of a dark
brown beast with a milky tanned mane, half in light gray leaped in gnashing and kicking ass... not forgetting having a good
bite of out a few of them... the humans were scared and they ran off...
"Yami! Since 'when' do you go out battling
humans on your own?" scolded the dark brown beast, yellowish-gray eyes widened hissing, milky tanned tail lashing...
Muma!" breathe the tanned female, feeling a few cuts on her shoulders "I just had no time to call for help!"
Muma replied to that with a sigh...
"Brawny!" called Michel as he walked to the dark brown beast "just the guy I was looking
"M-Michel??" confused Muma cocked a confused eyebrow...
"Um-Muma! You know this red-head?" asked the tanned female...
"Yeah! He's an old friend of Kage and Jiaaku!" answered the dark brown beast with a sweat drop "what are you doing here
and... sniff-sniff... why do you smell feminine?"
"Oh-it's probably my girl's perfume!" the red-headed man blushed rubbing
the back of his neck (^o^ ')
"You got your self a girl? Since when??" -O__o-?
"That's not the point Muma!" interrupted
the tanned female feeling a fit about this...
"Err-Yami! Are you all right? You're acting moody!"
"Not really! Why
is this human looking for you any way?"
"Me?" asked Michel "well it's a long story but..."
"Hold it right there!!"
a firm voice hissed... the tanned female, dark brown male, red-headed man and the female Oni craned to the voice only to see
a huge muscular human with sunglasses holding a huge sniper-rifle pointing right at them...
"I was looking for my lost
treasure, but ended up finding another!" the man stated, "So there are more of your type eh, beast?"
the red-headed man "I thought you were half way dead!"
"Thanks to you! Not anymore!"
"Huh?" Muma asked...
are males of this beast kind, aren't there!" the huge human slurred to him self with a chuckle...
"Sir!! We have to
leave! The forces are here! There are too many for us to handle!" a guard called from away...
"Dammit!" cursed the huge
man, and then picked some thing out of his belt, showing a gas bomb of some kind, throwing it to the group, the all started
coughing and gasping for air... the female Oni jumped on the man trying to make a sudden attacked, only to fall as a dead
flesh with warm seeping blood an the cold snow, with holes in her body, limbs jilting slowly stopping...
A sound of
a dashing run was heard, then a sound of "Oomph!!" came, a pained groan, a thud, then an evil chuckle and a sound of some
thing heavily running, foot steps fading... when the smock vanished, the red-headed man was gone, so was the huge human...
feeling tired and dizzy, Muma Yami and the female Oni could help but to feel knocked out passing out fast asleep...
"Muma?" the light brown female whispered to her self-feeling some thing terribly wrong, yet not
able to leave the den for being busy breast-feeding her child... craning down to him, hungrily feeding, eyes closed, chunky
little fists hitting he mold softly, with a faint motherly smile, the female felt her child's hand with a finger, scrolling
a careful back of one hand on his soft furless body, wishing that her mate would be alright...
"I'm back!!!" sang
the orange beast expecting a warm welcome, but instead he had nothing but silence (-O.O- ?) "Hello? Any one here??" (-T___T-
X) "Hmm... some thing isn't right!"
"Tora?" a voice called, as the light brown male walked out of his den with a happy-chappy
smile "Yo! Where've ya' been?"
"Me? I just dropped the brat back home at the temple! It's good to know he won't be around
to bother me any more!" chuckled the beast as he sat back on his hunches... looking around "where is every one?"
Muma and Yami are out some where, Kage is with Yuji in their den and I'm right here with you!"
"And..." Tora stretched
"Where is Ann dummy?"
"Uhh-Ann?" silent, tail tucked "oh-probably some where!!" shallowly answered
the young male...
"Hey-kid!" hissed the ancient beast with a wide grin on his orange stripped face "where is Ann kid?"
don't know! Maybe she's out!?"
"Or maybe she's in the den with you?"
"How'd (Snap/Gasp) NO!!!" cried the young male
in embarrassment "why would she be in 'my' den?"
"Well-I don't know!" mocked the beast looking away, tail lashing "you
two 'do' like each other a lot, so..."
"Tora!!! I'll take that as an insult!" growled the young male...
called the golden female with an embarrassed voice "no need toying with Uncle Tora! When he knows... he knows!!!" head leaning
against the stone wall frame...
"Ann!" groaned the young male... his black ears ducked back head sinking between his shoulders...
"Ho-you children! You stupid boy! You don't know a thing about females!!!"
"Huh??" Ann blinked...
"What do you mean
Tora?" confused, the young male asked...
"Well..." with a mocking look, Tora eyed the golden female...
"I feel insulted!"
growled the young female to her self "I don't know what you're aiming at Uncle Tora but I'm going to mother!" softly scolded
the young female walking to her parent's den...
"Oh-don't worry Ann! You'll be saying 'that' a lot of time to 'him' when
'you two' become mates!"
"..." The two of them said nothing, settling by just glaring the orange beast...
with a huge sweat drop, the ancient beast walked away whistling them blew up chuckling when he got a far distant safe...
times he-makes-me-So-Mad!!" hissed the young female walking into the den...
"Cant blame ya'!" murmured the young male
more to him self than to his mate... then craning around walking to his den...
"I wonder... if they
became mates, what would their kids look like??" said the beast to him self with a faint chuckle... walking silent, then a
version of the temple boy kissing up to the harsh voiced girl came up to his mind... Ushio and Asako in wedding clothing,
then a child pops into the picture... then another, then another, and another till the whole view is all full of them "Geez!
Not even bunny's are that fast!" he said with a huge sweat drop... shifting his head a bit up, the ancient beat drew a frowned,
eyeing the tanned female and the black male helping up a hurt dark brown beast, all three slumping their way back home...
feeling some thing wrong, Tora had to know what was going on...
Would things still be the same from now
A/N: OKAY! This is done! R&R cause I have no time to chat!!
