An Oath Is Born
As the three stared each other down, another figure standing on the water, watching from a distance. Her eyes glared coldly at Ean. "You'd better not bring harm to my sister, Ean.." She thought. "Or you will regret it..."
"Ean, you don't need to worry about her picking fights, ill be there to back her up, meaning" he said, his eyes full of death and anger, making even Kyashi get frightened. "You better watch out, you and your guardians!" he said sending Ean flying with his airbending.
"Such killer intent..." Kyashi thought as she watched the display of power by Seireitou.
Ean was at the top of a rock face at the other side of the lake. "I'm intrigued Seireitou! And when I'm intrigued, there's nothing to stop me then! Sparring with your little girl there would be fun, and I'm wondering if you trust yourself enough to let a little growth happen without killing her!" he yelled as the left side of his face began to turn frosty.
Kyashi glared. "I'm tired of your shit!" She snapped, the canines in her mouth along with her nails were growing slightly sharper than normal....
"Oh, the beast reveals itself! C'mon, try me!" Ean yelled back, the ice on his face growing.
"hold it" Evan appears
Kyashi almost went wild but then Seireitou grabbed her shoulder, and she immediatly calmed down, looking up at him. Seireitou faced Ean, "Ean, listen, ill make this simple, if you dont leave at this moment and stop bothering Kyashi, ill kill you. If you interfere during her or the others' training, i will kill you. Simple enough?" he said to Ean.
Ean's ice faded somewhat. His eyes filled with blood-lust, he spoke: "I won't interfere, but I'm still going to do my job. Next time we'll be met on different terms, Kyashi, and this man next to you who can't even know his own problems won't be ther to stop me or yourself!" he shouted as he blew away in ice and snow.
Kyashi's glare softened then, as the canines and nails retracted, and her eyes turned back to their blue color. "Damn him...." She muttered. "Who does he think he is?"
"His name was Ean, but for some reason.... he cant remember me.. but one thign is for certain, im not gonna let him harm you or anyone" he said smiling
"Yeah, especially me." Ryuka said, appearing beside Evan and staring at the two.
Seireitou put his hand out, "Everyone, lets make a pact between us... a friendship pact that we will always help eachother" he said
Ryuka was surprised, but jumped on the water and put his hand on top of Seireitou's. "Right."
Kyashi smiled, turning to Seireitou and putting her hand on top of Ryuka's. "Right!"
"i'm in" Evan sticks in his hand.
Seireitou smiled as the group flew their hands up, cheering
"Oh boy, its late, we should probably go to bed" he said
Sachi smiled to herself. "I guess we do have something in common after all..." She thought. "We now both hate Ean." With that, she shunshined away.
Back at the Guardians HQ
"Ean, you can;t go out with out your limiter, it's dangerous!" scolded Jenifer Follman, Ean's friend and fellow captain.
"Yes, I can, and you don't need to tell me this," he replied and hastily walked away.
"What about Nami? What will she think?" his old friend retorted.
Ean froze in his tracks, thinking about what his girlfriend would say about his unbridaled use of his frost side. Nami would throw a fit, alright. "Fine. But only after this one last battle. The wolf girl has to be taught not to follow in the foot steps of her master." he said as he continued walking down the street of the HQ.
On the Road
Ean was riding back to his outpost near the town the group was staying in, his limiter in place so as not to allow the frost side of his personality to come forth and reek havoc again. He was alone on his megabike, the rumbling of the engine the only sound for a long time, and when he saw the lights of the city, he turned off the road and went to the back alley that led to his in-town base on the west quarter. There, he contemplated what he was going to do about any consequences of this fight, using what he was told never to use as a tool. The frost side of his race's people was never truly able to be contained, and some were more dangerous than others, in his case, he had never heard of anybody so blood-thirsty...
Another late night
Kyashi was sitting there, looking out deep into the waters, lost in thought. "That guy Ean....he knew how to fully control the waternd morph it into ice." She deducted. "And that look in his eyes...were the same eyes I saw of Gaara....He must be very powerful."
"Speak for yourself, kid." Kyosuke replied. "If he ever shows up again, I'll just have to kick his rear end in."
"....Who is he?" She wondered, though not ignoring Kyosuke's words.
"his name is Ean Eromalc, one of the Guardians' captains." said seireitou walking out from the hall and leaned onto the railing, looking out into the ocean right beside Kyashi. "I really dont think you have anything to worry about, the Guardians are all talk.... even their leader needed help from 3 to 4 other captains just so i would kill their leader" he said smiling and chuckling.
Evan walks next to her "what are you doing out here" he stares down to the water
"Evan.... do you mind if i talk to her alone?" seireitou asked calmly.
"okay" he dissapears
"Thank you" he sent to Evan telepathecly. He faced Kyashi, "Kyashi, do you mind if i convey some truth something to you?" he said
"Shoot." Kyashi replied, looking at Seireitou.
"Well, when Tsunade was believed to be dead, my heart was filled with self-hatred and anger. I looked for her in The Spirit World for 2 months without sleep and still coundnt find her. I truly believed she was gone.... then i met you, and i saw a reflection of her in you.... at that point i conviced myself that i was in love with you... but, then i realzed that Tsunade could never be replaced, and so i fell into my anger, remember that day, when i was stern and fierce, yeah, that day. Then HIkaur showed me that Tsunade was alive and my heart finally regained that missing piece" he said smiling at her.
Ean was listening in on the conversation from an unsensable distance and was actually touched by this display of heart. Like me and Nami... he thought.
Seireitou-san...." She muttered, not knowing what to say. "Was that the only reason you were so kind to me?" She asked seriously. "Because I reminded you of her?" However, she did not look at him with anger, only calm questioning.
"Well, at first, yes, but then, i began to develop feelings for you, for love yes, but more of a brother/sister kind of love" he said smiling
"Really?" The seriousness in the blonde's face faded, and she smiled as well. "Because I think of you as a brother, myself." She admitted.
"Really, well, i guess our feelings are mutual" he said laughing. He looked out to the sea, "We may not be siblings by blood but the only brother i ever had attemped to kill me" he said looking at her, "I guess, im trying to say that i dont just think of you that way, i consider you my sister, in a way" he said smiling.
Kyashi nodded. "Thank you, Seireitou-san, for being honest."
"He'd better not like you that way," A voice said from behind him. "Or else I'd have to use Amaterasu." Ryuka walked up from behind the two, standing a few feet away. "Hi."
Seireitou looked at Ryuka's eyes. "Anything wrong, Ryuka?" he asked
"I couldn't really sleep." Ryuka shrugged. "A bit of an insomniac myself." Glancing at Kyashi, he noticed she was mostly trying to avoid his gaze, which surprised him a bit. He minusculously raised an eyebrow. "Hm? What's with Kyashi?" He thought.
"What did you mean by like you that way? In a loving way or in a sibling way?" he asked
At this point Ean rolled his eyes. Teenagers.
"In a loving way." Ryuka replied, folding his arms and looking skeptically at Seireitou. "I'm not looking after kids."
Kyashi raised an eyebrow at the statement, but slightly blushed, and was almost tempted to slap Ryuka, but restrained herself. "I don't know how I'm going to tell him about me and Mizu-kun..." She thought. "What will I say? How will he react?"
"Well, i dont, well, i do, but in a brother/sister way of love" he said as he faced Kyashi as telepathecly asked her, "Are you gonna tell him about Mizu?"
"I guess I'll have to..." She telepathically replied. "He's gotta know sometime...."
Seireitou nodded as he left, "Good night Ryuka-san and Kyashi-imoto" he said as he left
Sei left... time to listen more closely, this is gonna be juicy, thought Ean from his hiding spot.
"Eavesdroppng is rude," said Hikaru. He was directly behind Ean with one of his Shadow Blades drawn. "I do not see the relevance of spying on Ryuka and Kyashi."
"Oh, you sensed him too, Hikaru-san?" seireitou asked, sitting down right behind Ean.
"yah" Evan apeared on top of him "you could get hurt"
"Yep," replied Hikaru. "The Guardians are getting sloppy." He then said, "Normally I wouldn't want to get into a fight, but I think I can make an execption," He raised his index finger, "if he tarries here any longer than he should."
"Well, at any rate, Hikaru grab Ean and lets give these guys privacy" he said flashing away
Ryuka and Kyashi, alone
Ryuka nodded. "Later, Seireitou-san." He replied, turning to Kyashi. Walking over beside her, he stared at her. "Geez, Kyashi. It's just me." He said smugly, raising an eyebrow. "I'm not Pein or Madara, so you don't have to be nervous."
Kyashi still had her gaze avoided. "I guess....that's what happens when you're in love." She replied quietly. Turning to Ryuka, she breathed in, then out, and said quietly, "I love Mizu."
At first, there was only silence, and Kyashi feared the worst. "....Really?" Was all he said.
Kyashi had her gaze on the floor. "Yes..." She said, although a voice a bit stronger. "Although I don't know what to say now...."
Another deafening silence. Kyashi waited for the inevitable dramatic "I can't believe this. I thought you loved me" speech. She waited for him to walk angrily away, never to speak to her again.
It didn't come.
Instead, she felt a hand press itself on her head and ruffle up her hair. "Well, congratulations." He said calmly. "Now you have another spiky-haired emo to fall head-over-heels for!"
"I'M NOT A FREAKIN EMO!!!" yelled Mizu from the Lord knows where.
Kyashi raised her head, looking at Ryuka incredulously. "You're not mad?"
"Of course not." He replied, placing his hands on her shoulders and smiling. "I wouldn't have any reason to be mad at you for having a boyfriend....I mean, that's kind of a ridiculous fear, isn't it?" He looked into her eyes. "Kyashi....like Seireitou, I had always thought of you as the sister I never had." He said seriously. "Even though I may not like you that way, I still think of you as someone I could live and die for. I'll be there to protect you....always."
Kyashi's eyes were filled with mixed emotion, and she grasped Ryuka in a tight hug. "Thank you, Ryuka-kun." She replied.
Ryuka grinned. "Now she calls me 'kun'...." He thought. "Just don't start repopulating overnight, OK?" He teased.
Kyashi's eyes widened, before she let go of him and slapped him. "Shut up!" She snapped, a vein popping in her head.
Mizu then appeared in front of them and said, "Alright, who called me 'emo'?"
"hahahahah" You could hear Evan laughing in his room
Mizu instantly disappeared as he was brought to the hall by Seireitou. "You idiot, you were eavesdropping!"
"I heard emo, that's all," said Mizu.
The Next Morning
Seireitou woke up to see everyone lined up, "Oh, well, goodmorning Evan-san, Ryuka-san and Kyashi-imoto" he said.
Ryuka nodded in acknowledgement. "Good morning, Seireitou." He replied.
Kyashi smiled. "Good morning, Seireitou-san!" She chirped.
Mizu was sitting in the window and said, "Great, another day of the soon to be dead guy barking orders. Good morning indeed." He then drew his Shadow Blade and began to polish it.
"aw man last night was funny" Evan laughed
"I don't even want to know what you guys did to Ean," said Mizu.
"Alright, everyone, we are about one day away from arriving in the Sun Lands, so, today will be your last day for R n' R" he said
At that Evan's mood went down
"Speaking of which, where's Mizu?" Ryuka looked around. "He appeared a second ago on the boat, asked who called him emo, and then disappeared before he found out it was me."
"Also, since i guess its all out in the open now, we should officially congradulate the new couple" he said smiling raising his hand to Mizu and Kyashi
Mizu stopped polishing his blade and blushed a little. He then smiled and said, "And congrats on Tsunade being alive. Man, my sister-in-law's Kekkei Genkai never fails to impress me. First healing everyone in the war, and now reviving someone's soul?" He stood up and walked over to the rail, staring out to sea. He noticed Kyashi had come up next to him. He smiled and gave her a kiss.
Ean was bitter outside the window. Dammit. Aggression vetoed three times now. he thought.
"wow what a shocker" Evan sarcasticly said, while backing away from kyashi
Seireitou clapped his hands and sent to Kyashi telepathecly, "Im happy for you, Kyashi-imoto" he sent smiling
"Thank you, Seireitou-ani..." Was the blonde's reply as she broke the kiss and slipped an arm around Mizu's shoulders, ignoring Evan....this time.
Hikaru walked out of his room yawning and said, "Morning all."
Man, I wish I was home with Nami now. Damn Seireitou and Hikaru. Grumble grumble... thought Ean from his side.
"Morning" said seireitou said as Tsunade also woke up. "Morning Tsunade-chan" he said soming over and hugging her good morning
Ryuka rolled his eyes. "Oh great, it's couple central. Pffft, where's mine?" Then he unfortunately happened to glance at Hikaru. "....HELL no, I don't swing that way, Kami." He thought.
Hikaru looked over at Ryuka and said, "You have to learn to guard your mind kid." He then went to the rail and stared out to sea.
"Oh yeah" he said kissing Tsunade then faced Kyashi, "Kyashi-imoto, we need to finish your Waterbending training today before arriving to land" he said
"I can help with that," said Ean who had just opened the window.
Hikaru looked over and said, "So you escaped from the pit of sharks?"
"....Ok....what the hell are you doing here?" Kyashi asked annoyedly, tempted to use a Rasengan to make him fly away.
Seireitou looked at Evan comcily, "Real helpful" he said as he faced Kyashi, "Alright, you ready, Kyashi-imoto?" he asked as he prepared to go into the ocean.
"Hey, I'm just asking to help! I'm good with ice, why not!"shouted Ean as he dodged the rasengan.
"You're dodging an imaginary Rasengan, Metalhead," said a bored Mizu.
"Sorry, but you are using what id like to call Fake-waterbending" he said as a giant tsunami arose and washed Ean away into the ocean.
"Ready when you are." Kyashi said readily, removing her arm from its position. "Sorry, Mizu-kun, but you'll have to put up not seeing me for now." She thought, chuckling a bit. She then saw Mizu in a corner singing Far Away. She had to supress her laughter.
"uhhh" Evan rolled his eyes, "i'm outa here"
"Well, how about it?" asked Ean as his eyes focused on Kyashi.
"No" he said, "We dont need help from fake-waterbending" he said as Hikaru got him, "What do i do with him" hikaru asked
"Bring him away from here" he said as Hikaru teleported away with Ean
The two jumped into the water but stayed up on their feet without using chakra. "Wel first, i think we should so everyone how far you've progressed" he said chuckling. "We'll have a friendly water duel" he said
Hikaru was on the upper deck with Ean. He then said, "I really don't care if you watch or not Ean. Just don't get on Seireitou's, Mizu's, or Seireitou AND Mizu's bad sides."
Ean's eyes narrowed. "Who said I couldn't waterbend? he said as he got back onto the surface of the water. "Try this on for size." he said as he conjured up a giant iceburg next to the ship. "and fake waterbending?"
"Ok....why is he acting like we're friends all of a sudden..." Kyashi telepathically asked Seireitou.
"I dont know" he sent to her. He faced Ean, "I said no, now please leave" he said as he destroyed the iceberg into glitter in the sky.
"I'm trying to be nice here, would you prefer I slice off your arms and feed you to the sharks?" he asked.
"Look who's talking, sharkbait," retorted Mizu. He looked to Ean and said, "I'd rather not kill you, so don't talk to Kyashi that way."
Kyashi put on a sadistic smile, reaching up to touch the hilt of Zatenmaru. "Maybe I'll show you how can a human being can turn into a box..." She retorted, her Ghost Palm activating.
"Well, we dont need your help, plus, your kinda out of your league here with me" he said ingnoring Ean and facing Kyashi, "So, like i sai, lets have a friendly water duel so everyone can see how far you've progressed" he said
"Out of your league. I'm in my own league. All I can say is, We aren't enemies. That person back at the lake wasn't me, so please forgive my actions beforehand. I honestly want to help in any way I can, so don't go looking a gift horse in the mouth." Ean replied.
Seireitou laughed at Ean's attempt to say that they were even, "Thanks but no thanks, if you wanna help, then make sure James' captains dont give us crap"
"Thank the Lord! Maybe those little pixies'll leave me alone," praised Mizu.
Kyashi's smile remained. "Seireitou-ani...." She said. "You said we were going to have a friendly water duel, didn't you?" She pointed at Ean. "I want to duel him."
Seireiotu stood silent, "Very well Kyashi-imoto, but if he attempts to really hurt you, im stopping it there" he said then facing Ean, "You up for it?"
"I am. Should I just use waterbending, or can I use Ice too?" he asked as he shed his jacket and swords on a stand of ice he made next to him.
"Ice is apart of water, so yes, but" he said pointing at Ean, "If you try to seriously hurt her, ill kill you with Blood-bending" he said seriously
"Ouch," said Mizu, putting his hand to his heart. "A terrible way to die indeed."
Kyashi remembered her sister's words when she had first fought against her. Settling herself into a taijutsu stance, she pointed to her forehead. "No need to worry, Seireitou-anikun." She said mildly confidently. "He won't be able put a single scratch on me."
Seireitou faced her and put his hands on her shoulders, "Okay, remember this, Captains tend to draw out tiredness then strike, make sure not to tire yourself out quickly" he whispered.
Kyashi smiled sincerely at Seireitou. "All right," She whispered back. "I'll be sure not to use higher-ranking techniques.
Seireiotu smiled back, "Okay, good luck" he said letting go and went to the middle of Ean and Kyashi, "Ready, begin!"
Kyashi vs Ean: Waterbending Duel
"I hope you know how to waterbend traditionally, I use the old form of Tai chi. Do you know your history, Kyashi?" asked Ean as he drew up water whips on either side of him.
"No," Kyashi admitted, as she prepared herself for Ean's attack. "But I hope I learn a bit from watching you."
"Ah. That's too bad. That has a secret to it that is fairly important t getting good at the form of bending. Oh well," he said as he sent the whips at Kyashi, on striking from the bottom, the other from the top-down.
Kyashi cartwheeled aside, dodging the whips and using her own waterbending to dispel them. With an upward motion of her hand, she sent three of her own water snakes at Ean.
Ryuka telepathically sent to Seireitou, "Is any ninjutsu, taijutsu, or genjutsu allowed, or is it a fight of pure waterbending?"
"Only waterbending" he said as he watched Kyashi and Ean go at it. "Kyashi-imoto, remember our lesson" he sent to Kyashi.
Ean sent up a wall of water to block the snakes and froze the wall. The snakes came in contact with the ice and froze all the way up to where they sprouted. Ean jumped over his wall and froze the surface of the water, trapping Kyashi's feet in the ice. He then drew up columns of ice, to use as a projectile attack.
Kyashi nodded to Seireitou's thought, simply returning the ice around her feet to their former water state. Running toward the wall, she stopped a few feet and turned to Ean, raising her hands. Immediately large watery snakes rose from the body of water, heading towards Ean at quick speed.
Ean drew his hands up in a great swoop and a large wave grew out of the water, stopping the snakes in their flight patterns and crashing down on Kyashi, he softened it as it fell to make sure no harm came to his sparring partner.
Kyashi merely smiled, dropping herself underwater as soon as the wave hit. Holding her breath, she squinted her eyes to see Ean's blurry figure. As soon as she had sight, she thrust her hands forward. A wave of her own came rising upwards, hitting Ean upwards and hitting him with part of it. The force wasn't enough to hurt him, but it was able to send him back into the water.
Kyashi floated upwards toward the surface, pulling herself back up onto the water.
Mizu was watching the different attacks that were being executed. He looked back to the days he tried to waterbend. He chuckled when he remembered he froze Hikaru one time during his training.
Ean, now in a deadman's float, put his hands on the water and froze a large portion of it into a platform. He got on and froze a large portion of the water, creating a battle field that was solid and stable. "Now that's better. Time to kick it up a notch." he said as he drew up columns of ice that he split into discs that he sent flying at Kyashi.
Kyashi jumped onto the ice closed her eyes. "Solidify your thoughts...." She thought, breathing in. As the discs came closer, Kyashi blew an ice cloud toward them, stopping them in their tracks. "Is that all you got?" She taunted.
"Nice," said Mizu. He smiled as he watched. "Ean, your little Guardian behind is being handed to you on a silver platter!"
"That's because I would prefer not to have my blood kill me, waterboy!" retorted Ean. He then drew up sharp spikes around Kyashi, high enough to keep her from escaping. "Kyashi, you're actually very good despite your minimal training in this. I'd hate to see that put to waste. Why not do something with your life?" asked Ean as he walked towards Kyashi's prison.
Kyashi merely sat down on the waters. "First off, I also learn from observing others. I told you that before." She replied. "And secondly, I already have my own goal." With that, she focused. One of the spikes that were surrounding her was suddenly broken off and sent into the water, securing her escape. Two water snakes rose from the water under Ean and wrapped around him, freezing and trapping him in an "ice rope". "That's why...there is meaning in fighting you." She whispered, walking out of the prison.
Ryuka furrowed his eyes slightly at Kyashi's words. "Kyashi-imoto...."
"Are you talking about Sachi?" Ean said, not even trying to escape.
Kyashi's eyes widened, before she closed them. "The one and only." She replied.
"That's the rat that's been following us, I was wondering why Sei and the others didn't pick up on it. When we confronted eachother back at the lake, I felt another presence there, my frost side has heightened senses. She tensed when I said I wanted to fight you. What do you think that means?" he inquired.
At that moment, Seireitou used Bloodbending to stop Ean dead in his tracks, "You idiot!!, why did you tell her!" he yelled out
Kyashi frowned, opening her eyes again and glaring. "I don't know, nor should I care." She walked slowly towards Ean. "Possibly because she wanted to kill me herself." "It can't be because she actually cared about me...If that were true, she wouldn't have went off and killed our parents!" She thought.
"Kyashi-imoto, i didnt tell you because i didnt want you to freak out or do anything impulsive... im sorry" he said
Kyashi merely looked at him, eyes furrowed. She shook her head. "I promised Mizu that I wouldn't let my emotions overwhelm me....even under the most extreme circumstances..." She said sincerely, turning to Ean.
Mizu saw the distress on Kyashi's face. He jumped down onto the ice and walked over to her. He then asked, "Hey, I'd rather not be in the dark here, so who's Sachi?"
"...My sister." Was all that Kyashi replied.
A distance away, Sachi stood on the water, watching the scene. She frowned at Ean's revelance "Damn it....if he tells her....!"
"too late for that" Evan apears behind her putting her in a choke hold
Sachi's eyes widened, and she looked at him....before disappearing in a group of snakes that overwhelmed Evan. She appeared in the water under him, grabbing his legs and pulling him under. She calmly swam back up to the surface.
Hikaru appeared next to Sachi knocked her away. He then said, "So, you're the infamous Sachi...nice to finally meet you."
"I wish I could say the same for you." Sachi replied, freezing him in a stare with a large amount of Killer Intent and freeing herself. Activating her Kekkei Genkai, she placed her hand on his heart, and a small amount of chakra was all that was needed for him to cough up blood.
Not giving him time to recover, Sachi re-appeared again, out of his reach. She glanced over at Seireitou and Kyashi.
Seireitou appeared right next to Kyashi, "Kyashi-imoto, are you ready... to accually face her?" he sent to her
"well you got me to guard your back" Evan walks up next to her
Mizu smiled at Kyashi and said, "And I will also be here for you."
Kyashi's eyes widened, before she nodded. "Thank you, guys."
Hikaru's blood began to float towards him, and back into his veins. He then said, "That hurt, sweetie."
Mizu then said, "She's definatly no match for all of us."
Ean walked up. "Sachi is under pressure. Do what you think is right. That will decide a lot of things from now on."
Seireitou dragged Evan out of there, "This isnt your fight!" he yelled to Evan as he sat him down on the ship and seireitou returned to Kyashi's side. "Kyashi-imoto, both me and Mizu will back you up but this is your fight" he sent
"....Hai, Seireitou-ani." She sent back, turning to face her sister Sachi, who glared at each of them with apathy and coldness.
Sachi's glare softened a bit, before she pointed at both Seireitou and Kyashi. "It's been a long time, Seireitou-kun.... sister...."
Kyashi merely returned the glare. "I'd say it would've been pleasant to see you too..." She replied.
"...Sachi... it has been awhile" he said with both calmness but anger
Ean checked on the stats of Sachi. Hopefully he didn't have to do what he was really sent for...
"I understand you've been taking good care of my sister?" Sachi asked, putting her hands on her hips.
Seireitou smiled, "Depends what you mean by that" he said
Ean checked on the stats of Sachi. Hopefully he didn't have to do what he was really sent for...
"Cut the crap, Sachi!" Kyashi yelled out. "You came here to fight me, didn't you?" It was then that she noticed a familiar sword hitched on Sachi's back...
"You know her?" Ryuka asked Seireitou. "How?"
"I knew her from before i was married with Tsunade.... we.... had fought, i didnt leave that out but.... i left out.... the "good" stuff, if you know what i mean" he said looking down as did Sachi.
Hikaru slapped his forehead and said, "Dang, how many women have you had sex with anyway?"
"Sachi Urami, wanted for the murder of her and Kyashi's parents. The Guardians have a warrant for her. I'm not gonna take it, she's all yours Kyashi. But if things go wrong..." said Ean.
"Geez," said Mizu. "Do ya write up everyone who kills someone?"
Sachi grinned. "You lied to what you called your sister? How shameful..." She looked at Kyashi, who was beginning to go into her Bankai. "Especially after all she's been through....all of that suffering...." She noted.
"You traitor...." Kyashi hissed. "You murdered our parents and destroyed our clan...how would you know what suffering really is?!"
The only response she got was Sachi appearing behind her. "If only if you knew..." Sachi thought, pushing back a tear as she placed her hand on Kyashi's back.
A tearing sensation went throughout her spine, and she collapsed, screaming in pain. "Pitiful..." Sachi sneered.
Ean whirled around, swords already drawn. He made a cut at Sachi's chest and a stab at her arm with his left and right swords respectively.
Sachi grunted as her chest was scarred by Ean. Dodging his attacks, she countered with a punch to Ean's face, knocking him way.
Ean got up with a bloody nose. "Sam, I need a green light on aggression! and get the limiter removed!" Ean barked at his radio. "Already done, Ean." replied the man on the other side. "Alright! No more mister nice guy! Sei! get Kyashi healed and we need to get this bit-- knocked out!" Ean called as he continued to swipe at Sachi with unmarked speed.
Sachi frowned, dodging every swipe that came at her. "You're certainly a nuisance,aren't you?" Grabbing his wrist, she slammed a palm into his chest, with enough chakra to almost make his heart stop. A pool of blood erupted from his mouth and splashed into the water.
Hikaru and Mizu sighed as they drank some sake while watching the fight. Mizu the said, "Should we do something?"
"Nah," said Hikaru. "Unless something demands it."
"Kyashi!" Ryuka yelled, running over to the agonized girl and kneeling over her. "Are you all right?"
"Oh no," said Mizu. He rushed over to Kyashi and sent some of his chakra into her to heal her. He then said, "Mind if I fight for a while?"
Hikaru looked at Sachi and said, "You're one nasty woman. I wish I could fight you, but I respect Kyashi, and this is her fight."
Sachi raised an eyebrow. "In case you haven't noticed," She pointed to the fallen Kyashi. "Ms. Avenger has just been incapacitated." She said calmly. "But don't worry, I'll be sure to kill her after I'm done with Ean."
"It almost felt like....I was going to be paralyzed..." Kyashi thought, clenching her teeth and shutting her eyes at the still lingering pain. She couldn't respond to Mizu.
Ean was even more crazed, now that his limiter was destroyed by Sachi's palm strike. "Nice try, Urami!"
Mizu looked over and said, "The fool. Doesn't he know how to control his power?" He looked back to Kyashi and said, "We need a pro to heal her. Tsunade!! We need your help!"
Even Ean's frost side was worried about Kyashi. "That's what I said to do minutes ago! Geez!" Ean cotinued to swing with more power and speed than grace, occasionally freezing a bit of the water and evaporating it other times while attacking Sachi.
Sachi merely dodged the attacks once again, returning with her own taijutsu. Flipping back, she kicked some water into Ean's eyes, blinding him for a second. Then she went on the offensive, stunning him a heavy punch to the face, then a kick, sending him on his back.
tsunade rushed over and began to heal kyashi. Seireitou faced Sachi as everyone backed away from the two. "Sachi..... you different then you were back then.
"Seireitou, whats the story with you two?" asked Mizu
Seireitou stood silent then spoke to Sachi, "should i tell them about our past?" asked Seireitou
Sachi raised an eyebrow. "Go ahead. They deserve to know the truth, anyway."
Seireitou and Sachi's Past
"In my life, ive only loved 2 people, Tsunade being the true life lover" he said as Tsunade blushed. "This dates back to when we were both students under Orochimaru. Back..... when you had real emotions" he said facing Sachi.
"We first met eachother as rivals but over the years, we began to develop feelings for one another,...... right, Sachi?" he asked
Sachi closed her eyes. "You speak the truth, Seireitou-kun." She replied calmly, ahd in the confident way she spoke, anyone had to believe her. "Of course, I may have forgotten that I still had a sister to watch over...."
Ean got up, the ice on his face fully receded. "And that's what you've been doing all along, trailing the group to watch over your sister... or kill her," he said.
Seireitou looked at Sachi, and then looked down, "After all she was the one who sparked my idea for coup in Otogakure,,,,, and i remember how when i first met you, i could mysteriously sense the turmoil within your heart, as did you with me" seireitou said as he looked up to Sachi, "why dont you tell us the real reason your here"
Sachi opened her eyes, staring at Seireitou intently. "Ean was correct." She admitted. "I did track you to watch my sister's progress. Ever since the day I left Konoha, I wanted Kyashi to to grow stronger, so that one day, when we finally met again, I could show her my true strength." She looked over Kyashi, who was trying to stand up. "And yet, our power is still so far apart. What a shame."
Kyashi raised her head abruptly. Her eyes glittered with anger. "You lousy...!"
"And you, Ean." Sachi turned to the "mercenary". "Are a weak-minded idiot, letting your own power take over you just to do one simple thing. You're just as bad as Sasuke." She turned to Seireitou. "But, other than that, my reasons are strictly my own." Anger returned to her eyes. "But enough about me. Shouldn't you tell the rest of your story?"
Seireitou smirked then laughed, "Are you denying the fact that you were in love with me?" he asked
"No." The older blonde admitted. "In fact, there was one point where I felt like I could've just forgot everything and stayed with you. But then I remembered what I was in Otogakure before I could do so." She looked into Seireitou's eyes. "You've read my sister's mind with no problem..." She stated calmly. "You should be able to read mine by now..."
"No, you and i have always had an ability to see eachother's souls and read them" he said then looking to the confused group. "Maybe i should start at the beginning?" he asked Sachi
"Please do so, Seireitou-kun." Sachi replied, getting slightly annoyed. "You're wasting all of our time."
Seireitou smirked, "Very well, ill try to shorten it as much as possible" he said
Back in the Day: Seireitou and Sachi
- Note: The present Seireitou or Sachi will speeak in italics, the rest takes place in the past.
- "Sachi was always the best of Orochimaru's students, always killing her opponents off easily and without hesitation. The only one who could ever match her was me."
Seireitou and Sachi facing off against a small army, which Sachi defeats more of.
"Like always Sachi-chan, you win again" he said smiling
"You just need more practice!" Sachi replied, smiling genuinely back. The snakes retracted back into her sleeve.
Seireitou smiled back, "Yeah, i guess so"
- "However, it wasnt long before my skills began to surpass Sachi's to the point where Orochimaru wanted to make me his next Vessel before knowing of Sasuke"
Seireitou invites Sachi to a room
"Sachi-chan, may i ask you a question?" he asked her
- "It was surprising to me, at first. But then I realized that Orochimaru's only goal was to master every jutsu in existance and become stronger."
Sachi looked at him, a bit concerned. "Sure, Seireitou-kun." She replied, sitting down on the bed.
Seireitou slightly blushed and then looked at her, "I have an idea to rid this village of Orochimaru-sama and bring peace to the villagers. My abilities should be able to take on even Orochimaru-sama, but, i still cant do it alone" he said sitting down next to Sachi. "Sachi-chan, would you be by my side?"
Sachi's eyes widened, before she gave a grin. "I will, Seireitou-kun." She replied earnestly, scooting a bit closer to him. "I will always be by your side." But then a thoughtful look crossed her face. "How will we do so?"
"We will stage a coup, i already have a few men from orochimaru-sama's camp who are more then willing to follow me as the new Otokage of this village. Sachi-chan, when that day comes, will you be right beside me, as my wife?" he asked leaning closer to her.
Sachi could've lept for joy at the moment he had said those words, but instead, she took his hands in hers. "If you really mean that....then yes, I will!" Having said that, she grabbed Seireitou in a brief but tight embrace, before letting go.
"I do" he said smiling calmly while hugging her as well and kissed her
- "When you had said that....I'm not afraid to admit it now....that was the happiest moment in my life. In that moment, it seemed like I would finally find peace. That was where I should've stopped and remembered my goal....that should've been where that illusion faded...but surprisingly, it didn't..."
- The day right before the Coup
Seireitou has met with his army and is reayd for the assult. The night before, he meets Sachi ontop of the roof.
"Sachi-chan?" he asked her confused, "What are you doing here?" he asked smiling
Sachi had a glaring look on her face, though it was not directed at Seireitou. "...What did I just do....I can't....I just can't..." Glaring look dissipating quickly when Seireitou spoke to her, she put on a smile. "I told you I'd be here at your side, Seireitou-kun!" She called back. On her back was the Kusanagi Blade she had secretly extracted from Orochimaru while he was asleep.
Seireitou stood right next to her, blushing and smiling, "You dont need to feel tense, with our skills combined, Orochimaru-sama can't even match us" he said closer to Sachi.
Sachi relaxed slightly, placing her hands on his shoulders giving him a kiss on the cheek. "You're right, of course." She said, with a determined look on her face.
Seireitou blushed and then looked at the moon, "Tomorrow, my vision for this village will come true.... and taht day will be even greater knowing i will have you there with me, Sachi-chan" he said to her smiling
"The feeling's mutual." She replied, smirking.
- "It was then I began to realize how foolish I was becoming. I had just slaughtered my whole family, and now I was acting like it didn't happen, hoping to put it all away. After the successful coup, and the night before when we were supposed to be married, I made my final decision..."
The Night that Changed Everthing
- "I had finally succedded in taking out Orochimaru and liberated the village. That night, we were to be married, but that when every thing had changed"
Seireitou had met with his army, "Today, victory is ours!" he yelled out as every cheered Seireitou's name. "This village will now be on a slow path to recovery but in time, together, we shall rise as a dominate village!" he said as everyoen cheered louder and began to have a victory feast.
Seireitou went looking for Sachi around the area, "I wonder where Sachi-chan is?" he asked himself
"I'm right here, Seireitou." A voice spoke behind him. Sachi walked towards him calmly, standing a few feet away. She was looking off to the side, as to cover up one side of her face. The Kusanagi Sword was still drawn, however.
"Sachi-chan..." he said as he noticed the Kusanagi blade, "Are you okay? You should be happy, today, we finally secured our freedom from Orochimaru, we're free" he said trying to smile but looking at Sachi seriously
But the only reply he would ever get was the sword blade extending towards him, slicing through his shoulder. The force was enough to push him back a few feet on his back. The sword was still stuck in his shoulder, even as he hit the ground. Sachi merely glared. "Free?....I'm far from it."
Seireitou got up, slightly bleeding and took off the blade and tossed it away, "Sachi-chan!? Whats going on!?" he yelled out
Sachi closed her eyes. "You are a fool, Seireitou." She stated coldly, the sword retracting to his normal size. "I didn't come to Otogakure against my will. I came here to seek power from Orochimaru. And now that he's dead, I have no reason to remain any longer." She looked up into the sky. "I already have my own goals." She glared intensely back into Seireitou's eyes. "But marrying you is not one of them."
- "Ouch," said Mizu. "That must have cut pretty deep."
Seireitou looked down, "Thats why we both came here. I was shunned by my clan and village, even Itachi, my best friend, betrayed me, are you saying, that your feelings for me are fake!!" he yelled out, a small tear coming off his right eye.
"Go cry to someone else...I haven't the time." Sachi closed her eyes, and in the voice she spoke in wavered none, betraying her own insides. " I'll admit, it wasn't fake...." She said quietly. "You were the only person I could ever open up with, ever since....then...." Opening her eyes, she glared at Seireitou with killer intent. "You almost made me forget the reason I had left Konoha." She said, venom clear in her voice. "For merely that, I hope you burn." With that, she sheathed her sword and began to leave.
Seireitou stood there as she left, and he sat on his knees
- "From that point on, i refused to ever trust anone, i ruled Otogakure as a Dictator, killing all those who showed even the slightess disloyalty"
Back to the Present
"...." Sachi was merely silent, folding her arms across her chest. She stared emotionlessly at Mizu and Seireitou.
"Wow, Sachi," said Mizu. "At first I thought you were disgusting because you attacked Kyashi. You've taken my hate for you to a whole new level." He drew his Shadow Blade and muttered, "Bankai..." He was enveloped in his demonic armor, with two one-edged blades in his hands. "Makaishinko Tenmatatsujin." He then looked at Sachi with his red eyes. "Defend yourself."
Seireitou knocked Mizu back whith death in his eyes, "No, you stay back and protect Kyashi, right now, this is personal" he said seriously.
Mizu looked at Seireitou and said, "This is my fight too. She hurt Kyashi, and one way or another, it will be my blades that end her insignificant existance. It's as simple as that."
"Mizu, its this simple, if you get involved, ill kill you" he said, his chakra causing even Mizu to sweat.
"well i guess you wouldn't want my help" Evan said far away "then i'll just be going now"
"Seireitou's right, Mizu. It's either him or Kyashi, ad she's in no condition to fight." agreed Ean.
Sachi sighed. "Did my little brat sister fall in love with another emo?" She groaned annoyedly, slapping a hand to her forehead.
"DANGGIT, I'M NOT A FREAKING EMO!!!" yelled Mizu.
"Forget him" he said facing Sachi. "I now underdstand why you left me, but what you dont understand is..." he said as soon as he lost his cool, "THAT I NEVER CARED! I WAS WILLING TO LOOK PAST YOUR MURDER OF THE URAMI CLAN! I LOVED YOU BACK THEN FOR YOU, EVEN I SHARED MY SIDE OF KILLING FAMILY FOR SIMILAR REASONS" he yelled out in anger as he drew KyuubiTaishou. "Defend yourself, Sachi.....chan"
Sachi chuckled, pulling out the sword she had used to betray him at that very night. "No, Seireitou-kun. It is you that doesn't understand what's happened now. You should understand me well, for it wasn't power that caused me to betray you." She looked into his eyes once again. "It was the fact...that I had to die....at the hands of Kyashi...." She thought.
Bingo, thought Ean. "That was her plan, she watched Kyashi grow, in order to monitor when she could initiate the battle that would be her last," said Ean.
"Well then, i guess thats in the past, defend yourself, Sachi-chan!" he yelled out
Seireitou vs Sachi: The Brokenhearted Betrayal
"Seireitou-kun....even if I won't ever admit it..." She thought, rushing at Seireitou. "I never regretted those feelings for you...I'm sorry that it has to end this way."
Seireitou ran at her, clashing with her blade and pushed her back as she collided with a tree, it snapping the tree in two.
Sachi simply sidestepped the tree as it fell down beside her, opening her mouth and shooting a large snake, jaws wide and rushing at Seireitou.
Mizu sighed as he was tending to Kyashi. "Geez, will I ever fight?" He then said to Kyashi, "You alright?"
Kyashi had sat herself up, nodding. "I'm fine." But she looked at Seireitou, who's face was etched in cold anger. "But Seireitou-ani..."
Seireitou sliced at the snake, cutting it in two and jumped up before the poison smoke got him. The poison vanished and seireitou used KatonGetsuga right at Sachi. The explosion rocked the land. He dropped to the floor and faced Mizu, "Mizu, make sure Kyashi is watching, ill push Sachi to her breaking point so Kyashi will be able to know hwo she fights" he said as he faced the smoke from the previous attack.
"I sure hope you don't need help with that, but keep in mind we're right here," said Ean in response.
Sachi appeared on the side, slight scratches on her body and clothing, but the sword glowed a bright color, before the color faded back to its metallic state. "You see," She said. "You haven't been the only one improving yourself." Using her quick speed, she appeared in front of Seireitou, putting a hand on his head. The muscles around his neck constricted, choking off his air.
Seireitou's Spiritual Pressure's broke that hold on his neck as he rushed at her at over 20 times her speed and used his blade to leave a large gash on her shoulder, pushing her back. "Ironic, thats the same shoulder you hit me at when you betrayed me" he said coldly.
Sachi shut one eye and winced, eyeing the sword that was embedded in her shoulder. "Seireitou-kun...." She thought. "There was one other thing that I didn't, and probably would never mention...but the defection to Otogakure affected me, too..."
Sachi stopped when she was a good distance from Otogakure, looking backwards. Seireitou hadn't gone after her, or sent ANBU. Clenching her heart, she stared at the ground, tears welling up in her eyes. "Am I destined to become a traitor?" She thought desperately, a pain growing in her chest. "Am I fated to wear everyone's hate?...I can't take this....I-I can't."
Indeed, she couldn't. She fell to her knees, shutting her eyes and letting out a raw scream, straight from the heart. Her head falling to the ground, she put her face in her hands, sobbing heavily and freely. Mixed emotions were running through her mind: hate at Seireitou for making her feel love for him, guilty for betraying him and her sister, and sick at herself for being such a monster. One thought roamed through her mind that entire night:
"You remember quite well." She replied, opening her mouth. Instantly her sword, along with a hand that was grabbing it, extended and sliced into Seireitou's opposite shoulder, embedding itself. Still extending, it slammed Seireitou through seven trees before finally stopping. Out of the still open-mouthed Sachi, another Sachi came out of the original's mouth while it dissipated. "Oral Rebirth Technique". She whispered, falling to the ground and getting up.
Seireitou walked out of the forest, all his injuries disappeared instantly. "Of course i didnt forget, you were the first person i ever truly loved" he said as he used one more KatonGetsuga, blasting Sachi through the entire forest.
As the smoke cleared, Sachi merely frowned, the Kusunagi blade once again glowing and pointing at Seireitou. "I've learned to improve Orochimaru's sword while I was away." The glow faded quickly. "Now it is able to actually cut through anything, even opposing attacks. Consider your blasts useless."
"...Oh really...." he said as he stated "Dragon Strike". Large arcs of lightning attacked Sachi. She believed her blade could destroy the blast but she was wrong as her blade snapped in two and she was pushed back as she collided with a rock wall. Seireitou appeared right infront of her, aiming his blade for a final strike. "Its over, Sachi" he said as he then hesitated and droped his blade. "No..... i cant kill her... i cant" he said falling down as well. "No, i still love her" he whispered
Sachi's eyes widened as she slowly got up. Her eyes widened in fierce rage, grabbing Seireitou and slamming him into the rock wall. "You're very foolish, you know." She snarled, letting go of one hand and igniting it with her dreaded Ghost Palm. "Now DIE!" She thrust it.
But it never got to its target. Sachi's eyes widened, letting go of Seireitou and raising her arms up before she was sent flying into the air. Landing a few feet away, she quickly got up....and gasped.
Kyashi dropped her foot, now complete in her Primal Form. White chakra was swirling around her in an untamed way. She glared at Sachi with angry eyes. "Don't try to stop me, Seireitou-ani." She sent to the fallen man. "I've seen enough!"
Seireitou got up undamaged, "I wont, Kyashi-imoto, but, be careful" he sent to Kyashi
The Long Awaited Confrontment: Kyashi vs Sachi
Sachi's looked on, stunned, as Kyashi went into the "Jinchüriki Form" stance. "This is Kyashi.....?" She thought. "When did she learn how to transform like that? And what does she intend to do?"
Kyashi, meanwhile, glared into her sister's eyes with a combination of determination and hatred. "I've heard enough of you, Sachi!!" She roared. "Now I know that somewhere in that cold shell of yours, my sister is there, waiting to come out!!" The white chakra faded slightly. "I'll force it out of you, even if I have to break every single bone in your body to do so!"
Seireitou watched with mixed emotion, on the one hand, he wanted Kyashi to defeat her sister but on the other hand, he still harbored feelings for Sachi and didnt want her to get hurt. He meerly watched the conflict.
"Don't worry, Sei. What happens will happen." said Ean who was at his side.
"W-what the hell are you?!" Sachi yelled, glaring at Kyashi.
The younger sibling merely smirked and said, "For now....YOUR WORST NIGHTMARE!" She raised both of her fists up and slammed them on the ground. A resulting shockwave of dirt came at Sachi, blinding her. But before Sachi had time to react, Kyashi already had appeared in front of her, thrusting her fist into her stomach.
Not giving her time to recover, Kyashi kneed and punched her stomach again, beating the air out of her, then kicking her away, sending her back onto the water surface. A trickle of blood came out of Sachi's mouth as she was tossed away like a tumbleweed, finally stopping on her own two feet.
But Kyashi was apparently too quick for her, for as Sachi looked up, she saw Kyashi's foot coming down on her head, before she saw murky blue as she was forcibly sunk into the water's depths.
Kyashi glared at the spot where her sister disappeared, before raising her head up to the sky and letting out a loud roar. "RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!"
Seireitou continued to watch, unsure weither he should be happy that the girl he considered his sister was winning her the girl he had fallen for in his past and even now was losing. He felt a variety of ideas coming to him, to help Sachi, to continue watching, to help Kyashi, he felt confused.
Sachi sunk helplessly into the depths of the ocean, her limbs trying desperately to move themselves. In her blurred sight, she could see a fast missile coming her way, and her eyes widened as it slammed into her, spinning her. Impact jarring her limbs, Sachi began to swim back up, but was again slammed by the missile. But before it could strike again, she finally swam back up quickly. As she leaped from the waters into the air, however, she abruptly turned her head, shocked, to look at a clawed hand grabbing her foot, and slitted eyes glaring.
Kyashi spun herself in the air and let go of Sachi's foot, releasing her and throwing her into the bottom of the rock wall with incredible force to shatter a few rocks. Landing on her feet, she ran towards it at ninja speed.
As Sachi stood there, damaged and Kyashi ran at her to finish it, Kyashi threw a chakra hand to end it. At that moment, the attack hit, but not Sachi, but Seireitou. "Wha... you fool!" said Sachi. "What are you doing Seireitou-ani!" Kyashi said. "I... i dont know... my body just acted on... on its own.... i didnt have time to think" he said as he fell to his knees, and then flat on the floor, right infront of Sachi.
"...What the hell?!" Ryuka yelled out, ignoring the two sisters. "Are you out of your mind?!" He slapped a hand to his forehead, tempted to curse up a storm.
Sachi and Kyashi watched as Seireitou fell...
Sachi's eyes widened, as she watched Seireitou's fallen body. Her mouth was hung open, horrified. She couldn't hide behind her emotionless facade any longer, for she was now shocked at Seireitou's intervention. "W-why...?" She managed to gasp out to Seireitou, ignoring her equally shocked sister.
Seireitou managed only a few words, "It was because..... i made a pact of love and protection to you.... even a betrayal cant break..." he said as he was cut off and passed out.
"H-he still....loves me...? After what I've done...?" Sachi thought, falling to her knees. She stared at Seireitou's face, ignoring the tears that began to well up in her eyes. With a trembling hand, she reached out and touched Seireitou's face. "Seireitou-kun..."
"...." Kyashi merely stared with a saddened face. She looked at Sachi, who was trying to keep her feelings hidden. "Don't worry, I won't insult you." She said quietly. "Go ahead and let your feelings out."
Sachi's eyes narrowed slightly as she stared at Seireitou, rubbing his face as she did so. "I was prepared to die by her hand....but I wasn't prepared for this....S-seireitou-kun..." She shut her eyes, dropping her head to rest in her arms on Seireitou's chest...and did what she hadn't done in a long time. She cried.
Kyashi watched silently, as Sachi's back heaved with grief and sobs. She almost felt like crying herself. "To think this is what it takes to bring someone back from betrayal..." She thought. "That could've been what Ryuka could've done to me..."
Mizu and Hikaru rushed over, "Hold on, we can still save him but we need to do it fast" he said
Kyashi reached over and gently pried Sachi from Seireitou. The latter of the two slowly turned around to face Mizu and Hikaru, and she gasped.
A grief-stricken face was etched on the older blonde's face, something that Sachi had never shown to Kyashi. Two rivers were coming from her eyes, stopping temporarily however. "Normally, I'd laugh at her...but now...."
"Guys, the HQ is only a mile or two from here, we should go there." said Ean, now at the edge of the group.
Seireitou, Dead or Alive?
Seireitou was rushed on the boat where Mizu began to insert chakra into seireitou but it didnt work and Tsunade or Rukia was there for they both returned to their home. "Damn, its not workin" Mizu said
"No, it wont work, at this point, only the monks of Hikarigakure 2 can save him but we cant reach them in time..." Hikaru said as Sachi and Kyashi both cam up onto the ship.
Sachi merely stood silently, wiping away her tears and once again trying to put on her silent facade. However, the grief that she was stricken with was still lingering in her body. "Why did it have to end up like this...?!" She thought disheartenedly.
"Damn it, it has to work!" Kyashi shouted, kneeling over Seireitou and placing her own hands on Seireitou. Her hands begin to emanate with Kyosuke's chakra. "Damn it, Seireitou-ani..." Kyashi thought desperately. "I can't lose you now!"
"Then what?" asked Ean.
"i can help, but it won't work for long" Evan places his hand on Seireitou. a green aura sinks out of Evan and into Seireitou. "this chakra has healing properties, but its not enough to completely heal him"
"I dont know....." Hikaru said as he then faced Sachi, "Do you have an idea to save Seireitou?" he asked her
"What makes you think I know?" Sachi asked annoyedly, glancing up at Hikaru.
"I dont know but at this rate, we'll lose him......" he said
"...." Both of the Urami sisters stared at Seireitou. He looked so peaceful, his face set in a content sleep. "Did he wish to die this way?" They both thought.
"Ryuka, i need you to feed me some charkra to replace the chakra i'm giving Seireitou" Evan mutterd while exausted
"Then move over." Ryuka mused, kneeling over Seireitou beside Evan.
Seireitou's soul could see itself leaving his body, "Did it really end like this? No, i wont die like this, not around my loved ones!" he said forcing his soul back. His eyes began to slightly open.
"Hey, look." said Ean.
"Wait..." Ryuka muttered. "Did you see that....?" He stared at Seireitou's face. "...I think his eyes moved a bit...!" Running over, he kneeled beside Seireitou and put a finger to his neck, checking for a pulse.
Sachi's breath caught in her throat. "....Seireitou...?" She thought, and a spark of hope appeared in her grief. "....Are you...?"
"He's ... I think...waking up," said Ean, his eyes focusing on his eyes.
Evan falls back into the chair "that was a close one" Evan was sweating from his forehead
"yep i just pored in half my chakra, don't thank me" Evan leaned back breathing heavily.
Ryuka shushed him. "Sssh! Can't you see there's a tender moment going on?"
Seireitou, staggering, held out his hand to Sachi's cheek. "G..good, your okay" he said smiling and looking at Kyashi, "Your okay too... thank goodness" seireitou said.
Kyashi merely smiled, relieved. "Phew...." She thought. "You had me goin' there for a second....I thought we were going to lose you..."
Sachi's lip trembled, before she threw herself on Seireitou. The tears returned, but only in trickles. "D-damnit..." She whispered harshly. "I-I thought I was going to lose you...!"
"Wow, the killer shows emotion for the... third time?" said Ean.
"Shut the hell up, Ean." Kyashi replied bluntly, waving a hand.
"yep sachi and kyashi are okay" Evan mutterd to himself "lets drag that out longer"
Seireitou's hand was still on Sachi's cheek, "I thought i would have lost you, thats why i took that attack in.... i was afraid id... lose you, Sachi-chan" he said smiling
The sobbing slowly stobbed. "I may have lost you in the end..." She said quietly. "But, please...what I did was wrong....I know....but I only ask you to forgive me." She hugged Seireitou even tighter.
Ean's eyes softened. Great, now I'm feeling lonely. he thought.
Kyashi, noticing Ean, smiled and grabbed him in an embrace of her own. "Awww, does Ean-san feel lonely?" She teased.
Ean looked over to see Mizu in a death glare at his face. Oh crap. he thought.
Seireitou gently brought her head close to his and looked in her eyes, "I was never angry with you.... i was afraid... that you lost your way" he said looking deeply in her eyes.
Sachi looked back into Seireitou's eyes, distinctly regretting that she had to space herself between him and herself a bit. "That's half-true." She admitted, chuckling half-heartedly. "But...I think I'm still off the path....I can't go back to Konohagakure anymore. I'll be nothing but a criminal there..." She then pressed herself against Seireitou's chest, embracing his warmth.
"And seireitou clears her name" Evan said sarcastically
"Wait a second... that just might work," said Ean staring at Evan in disbelief that he had such an idea.
Evan walks up pinching the back of Ean's neck making him fall unconcious
Seireitou smiled back to Sachi, "As long as you are willing to go back, i will help you" he said bringing her closer to him.
BAM! Evan was sent flying to the other side of the boat. "Damn it, Evan!" Kyashi yelled, an anime vein popping in her head. Knocking Ean on the head, she woke him up instantly.
Evan apears, "Okay next time someones dieing don't ask me to help"
Seireitou brought Sachi really close and looked into her eyes lovingly, "So... are you? Are you willing to forgive yourself?"
Sachi slowly brought herself to nod. "Y-yes...I am..." She said honestly.
"Even though she might not want to, Sachi's name could be cleared in a day or two, the Guardians have connections. That is, if you want the help." said Ean.
Hikaru shut Ean's mouth, "You idiot, dont ruin their moment! They havent seen eachother in so long!" he sent to Ean
Seireitou was really close to Sachi, to the point where he began to blush, "Good, since your willing, i promise to clear your name in any way i can" he said to her eye to eye.
Hey, I feel that way too! Geez! Ean somehow sent back to Hikaru. But nonetheless, he kept quiet.
Sachi blushed as well. "T-thank you....Seireitou-kun." She said.
Both of them began to lean closer and closer to eachother....
Sachi, although inches away from Seireitou's face, immediately widened her eyes and pulled back a bit. "W-wait! This...isn't right." She insisted, looking down at the ground. "I know you forgive me....but it's too late to attempt to re-kindle what we had. You have a wife waiting at home for you." She looked into Seireitou's eyes regretfully.
"Well...... i was never officially married and..... besides.... what i have with you is much deeper, i love Tsunade but..... you and i have something deeper..." he said to her smiling.
Sachi's eyes widened again. But inside her head, she was smiling deviously. "W-well...in that case...."
"Also, I think i ahve an idea so both you and Tsunade are happy" he said smiling as he leaned in closer to Sachi.
As their lips met, Sachi telepathically sent a message to Seireitou. "Really?...What is it?"
"Well, like you and me, Tsunade always had something deeper with Dan, so, if i ask for a favor from Hikaru, then Tsunade will have her love back and i will have mine back" he sent to her.
"You are one clever guy...." She inwardly grinned.
"Well, you are one strong woman, to be able to hold off my Katongetsuga like that, no wonder i fell in love with you" he grinned inwardly as after about 5 minutes they slowly pulled away.
"Aaawwww...." Kyashi mused jokingly. "That's soo cute."
"Shut it, little brat." Sachi muttered.
"You know she has a point," teased Ean.
"Shut up, Metalhead" teased Seireitou.
Ryuka snickered, then remembered something. "Seireitou." He said, addressing the silver-haired man. "Maybe instead of the Land of the Sun, we should go to the Land of Mountains. Ryun could probably help us out with our training." He suggested.
"Yeah, anything to get away from the Metalhead co." he said laughing as he and Sachi got up. "Also, Hikaru, can i ask you of a favor?" asked seireitou
Getting Tsunade's Love Back
"Shoot" said Hikaru
"Well, could Rukia bring Tsunade's lover Dan back?" he asked
"I dont see why not" Hikaru said as he vanished.
About an hour later, Tsunade was brought to hikarigakure 2.
"Tsunade, i have a surpise for you" seireitou said as Dan walked out of the room.
"Dan-kun?!" she said as she hugged him
"Seireitou-kun, why?" asked Tsunade
"Everyone deserves to be with their true love, right?" asked Seireitou
"Yeah, but what about you?" asked Tsunade
"Ill manage, id rather have you happy with the man who you have a deep connection with" he said smiling
"Thank you, Seireitou" said Tsunade as she kissed Dan.
Tsunade left with Dan as they went to Konoha to get officially married. Seireitou then faced Sachi, blushing, "So, sinc we're still on the road, would you like to come with us?" asked seireitou to Sachi
Sachi smiled, her eyes in the U-shape. "Of course." Reaching over to roughly pat an irritated Kyashi's head, her smile turned into a grin. "Someone's gotta watch over the brat."
Kyashi glared up at her, a vein popping on her head, before she comically began to knaw the outline of Sachi's hand.
Seireitou put his arm around Sachi, "Well then, lets go! To the Land of Mountains!" he said smiling
