looked over at her friend, "So it has come to this..." she
sighed as she heard Hiei's voice booming Kurama's name.
was Kurayami's own folt... you did warn him the last time..."
Kin wisperd, her eye's glearing.
know..." Bane groned. "But it was going so well... I
though I had finaly found some inteligens in one of my kind."
She shooke her head, "But again I was mistaken".
smiled coldly, "As always."
snarle at her friend, "You were there when I found him... why
didnt YOU say anything? hmm?"
remaind silant as she looked away.
on..." Bane said with a growl, "We have to be ready to
move in once Hiei get's out of there." with that she moved
forwards to take her plase by the front entranse.
screamed Kurama's name, He was about to jump on what looked like the
leader when he had seen his lover.
was held in midair by a piller of light, his silver hair streamed
around him as he seemed to be in some kind of pain only no sound
came from him. then those Golden eye's he had though lost, looked at
him, then Kurama smiled as he mouthed Hiei's name.
couldnt take his eye's of his mate, as an ark of light and power
sudenly went into the leader's chaist. Then thiner, weaker stripes
of light brock off and went to the others stood in a larg sercal.
now looked like they where in some kind of extasy that was a world
Hiei had expected some kind of noice, a huge crushendo of violent
sound that would hurt his ear's. But there was nothing, not even the
sound of a slight brease ruffaling materal, nothing. and that he
found it more desturbing.
one seemed to even have notised he was there, they were so inwraped
in what they were doing.
only thing to move in the hall now was Kurama as he thrashed in the
light he seemed to be cort in.
shooke himself, He had promist Bane he wouldnt kill any of them, all
he need do was get Kurama out, and now he saw his mate, all thought
of reveng had left him, Bane could have her minians to do with as
she pleased. all that sat on his mind was how to get Kurama out of
a while he finaly came up with the only thing he could do, and with
a lunge of speed he throw him self at Kurama.
could feel all of the Youko's Ki seeping into him, he maniged to
chanel smaller amouts to the others so they thought they were geting
the same thing. but he laped up the chaingling's power as if it were
glorifd in it as it corsed through his vain's, he could feel the
land around him and the power he could pull from it or the way he
could chaing it at mear will. It over loaded his senses till he was
sure he would loos himself in it at any moment, but he fearsly keped
himself in check.
could feel that the Youko was waning, he was puting up a good fight,
but he was loosing, as the ki flowd more freely now. Kurayami could
also feel the Youko/human fisical body becoming weaker as the
thrashing became less.
suddenly everything was cut off, the powr was instantly wriped from
him, it was like a big hole had just been punched through his chest.
but he couldnt move or see or hear any more. all his senses flue on
the wind now and he was left helpless.
hit the colum of light like a bulit, at first it bulked him then
suddenly gave way as he threw his arm's around Kurama's wast as they
both went flying to the flore in a heap.
got up as Kurama lay limp on the ground like something broken, his
silver hair coverd his face. Hiei ignored him for the moment as he
looked at the others in the hall.
were a multitude of demon's of many veriaty, but all of them now
crumpaled, as there shreakes of pain and destress filled the
rafter's, they all seemed cort up in there own world, not notising
him or Kurama.
turnd his conserns back to the Youko, to see Kurama sturing and
trying to sit up.
still" he said as he put his hand on his chaist.
came the weak reply as golden eye's focased on him. then he smiled,
"You took your time"
snorted then picked the Youko up in his arm's, "You can complan
when I have you out of here youko" he said, his heart was
trying despratly to beet at just being close to what was his but he
fought it down fearsly, there were more important things to do right
tightend his arm's about his neck, "I'm tired..." he
statedas his eye's closed again.
bit his lip in fear as he tried to remember how to get out of this
plase. He couldnt go the way he had come in and Kurama was now no
help. So taking the first door he saw he ran.
was pruving a clumsy waight and slowed him down, but he ran down
coridor after coridoor, always keeping to the larger ones.
suddenly huge door's infrunt of him flue open and he froze, ready to
throw Kurama down and fight if need be.
it was Bane who steped over the thresh hold, her gray eye's sought
him out quickly, then she smiled when she saw Kurama in his arm's.
she said coming towards him, Kin on her heals like a shadow.
"My Elves have built a small camp beyond the trees... Take him
brisaled, he was fed up of this woman telling him what to do,
"I'll take him where I please" he saped.
eye's sudenly went into vishus slit's as her face lost all imotions.
"You will do as I say if you want Kurama back as he was, little
one" her voice was also vod of all imotons now and it sent a
shiver down Hiei's spine, "His fight is not over yet... now
gleard at her, But she had helped him this far, another day couldnt
hurt. Without a word he ran passed her and out the door.
watched Hiei disapear and hoped he would listen to her, other wise
he would find he had a problem on his hand's. espeshay if he took
Kurama back to the Ningenkiai right now.
you" Bane brisaled, "If he dosnt listen to me then I'm not
going to be the one that has to sort it out this time! My kind will
be hunted down till the last... I dont facy having to deal with
fanatics after my blood."
gave her a side way's look. "like it's a problem for you if
this world or the one's attached to fall foul to that plage"
sighed, "But like
this dimention... Somethings always going on..."
looked away, "I dont see what your so attached to..."
fought down her anger as she sterd at her friend, "No you
wouldnt... Come on.." she said, she could still hear the
screams coming from the great hall, "It would seem your pray is
wating for you".
smiled in the only way she could, vishasly. "What are you
wating for then?"
smiled as she began carmly walking down the coridoor.
strugaled to he feet as his senses finaly began to obay him again.
his hearing was the first thing to come back to him, and all he
could hear was the sound of the others screaming and his own panted
he was stood and his head had stoped swiming he carfully opend his
eye's and looked to the center of the surcal to see what had happend.
but his eye's fell on nothing, Krama was no longer there, then he
glanced down and his heart stoped.
Lady was stood with her hand's on her hips and a self asuring smile
on her face as she looked at him. Then he notised someone stood just
behind her shoulder. The other figur almost made him gag.
had heard of the other demon in storis and tails, but he hadnt
thought it was real. The shorter demon stood with her thick dark
hair covering her eye's that he knew sterd at him. Small horns
patruded through her hair and her lips were pulled in to some form
of a smile that froze Kurayami in place. He had once thought that
the Lady was an imposing figure but this one seemed to pull all the
light out of the room. He tried to swallow, What now stood at the
Lady's shoulder had killed her own family and wiped out entire
rasces of people without batting an eye lid. She was rumerd to be
dead, or at least she hadnt been seen in years.
Lady moved a little untill she resterd her elbow on the other's
shoulder. "I asume you two need no intruduction?" she
looked smug. "Kin my dear... This is the one that has be urking
me for the longist time... Do you wish to save him till last?"
smile on the Kin Slayers face broudent as she trow The Lady's arm
off her shoulder then she advansed on the first damon that came to
hand, Kurayami watched as Akarui was the first one she grabed by the
shoulders. He was still realling in what ever pain he was traped in
and didnt realise what was happening.
eye's flutterd open as the Kin Slayer presed her lips to his. She
groned in something close to extasey as Akarui's eye's flu open and
he began to strugal, but the Kin slayer had a tight hold on him, and
it wasnt long befor she droped him, a lifles corpes.
felt no tang of guilt for Akarui, he had hated him, and ifhe could
have would have killed him in the same way, Sucking his very soul
out of his body. But was that to be his fait?
he maniged to get some hold on the storm that was his Ki, as
carfully as he could he tested to see if there was any meens of
escape. But the Lady had a sheild about the room and he could vagly
sence another that surounded the entire mantion. He groned as the
Kin slayer moved on to her thired victim.
Lady looked at him then, noting his grone. "Dont worry
Kurayami.. I'm asured t's quite painless... well at first
anyway" she smiled, "Ow and dont think you can escape.
That tendral you sent out didnt tell you about the vacume I have
created between the two barriers did it?" she grinned as she
walked over to him.
cringed away from her, he hadnt known and the fact that she had let
him sence them only bought shame. he stumbaled and fell to his nease
as she sat down besides him like they were old friends watching a
play or something.
wish you had listend to me" She sighed almost regretfully as
she watched the Kin Slayer haveing a bit of dificalty with one of
the lager demon's. "I could see you were not happy here with
these weakalings" she waved her hand at the surcal, "And
befor you started on this stupid sceam I was thinking of asking you
into my harem..." she mused.
grouled, "I would rather die..." he maniged to weez out.
"Than be one of your... Snivaling Elves who kiss and lick..
Lady was chewing on a nail as she looked at him, almost the image of
innocens, "I would not have expected that of you" she said
her face carm. "They follow me like thay do because that's how
they want too, I neather expect or tell them how they must be around
me... it's like a huge game to them I think." she played with a
bit of her golden hair. "I just deside who comes in and who
goes... They only do what I say in hope of gaining my interest"
day they will.. turn on you.." Kurayami smiled.
Lady smiled down at him. "Doutfull" she comented.
"They know I dont need them, nor ever will do, and they also
know I can hold all there lives in my hand if I so chose.. but I do
not... and you have diverted my from my point" she fround at
him as if to a naughty child, "If you would have acepted my
offer it would have goten you out of this plase, you could have told
the others I demanded it, they would not have gone against my word..
and you could have left any time you would have wished after
that" she shruged, "But I asure you, you would not have
wanted to... You would have been my companion, I would have tought
you anything you wished to learn from me and with in my power... I
would have even shown you how to do what you have tried here... But
you didn not listen to my first warning" she sighed deeply.
let sink in what she had just siad. and he would have beged her to
forgive him. but his prid was to batterd as he sat there at her
shrill scream cut the other wise silense in the room. The Lady
she called out to the damon across the hell. as Kin pushed the demon
away she had been consuming the soul of.
bastard!" the Kin Slayer stormed as she jumped on the offended
demon who even now was tying to make hs escape.
is it?" The Lady demanded as she walked away from him.
heard The Kin Slayer mumbal something about tanted soul's and
selling. and the Lady mumbal something about it being to weak to
bother about and not being a thret in it's next life.
Kurayami was bejond careing, The Lady was destracted and this would
be his only chanse,carfully this time, and with more of his sences
intact he began to form together his powers.
was now glad that Bane had told him to find the camp she had built
just bejond the tree's. Because he didnt think he could go on much
longer without colapsing. He was also thankfull he hadnt had to
fight, for he knew he would have probably lost.
spid the green tent's as he looked for the small camp.
jumped down into it's senter and was apaled to be greeted by an
unruffaled Valimoor, who just smiled at him.
your back then... and with the Kurama I see". Valimoor sounded
as if he knew him and it emediatly put Hiei on edge. But the Elf
just turnd. "Follow me, we have a tent all ready to reseve you
both." he began to wander towards a larg tent, and Hiei folowed
with his burdan. "Would you like anything to eat?... anything
brought?" Valimoor asked as he opend the flap.
steped inside, the interear was strooned with larg cutions, the
floor was coverd with a huge thick rug, and there was a small table
in the middle with what looked like a jug of wine and a bowl of
steped passed him and nelt down at the far corner and began
rearanging some of the cutions. once he was finished he turned with
a smile, "Why dont you put Kurama down here?..."
at first wanted to protest, but he was growing weary and it was the
best plase to put his unconshas burdan he still carrid. He walked
over and jentaly laid Kurama out, Noteing Valimoor watched him but
was wise enough not to inteveen.
plase Valimoor had made was wide enough for them both but he didnt
lay down as he so despratly wanted to. instead he layed Kurama out
the way he had seen him sleep so many nights when he had just
heard Valimoor move then a soft sheat was pushed into his hand's.
"Why dont you get some sleep?..." his voice was soft and
suthing now, loosing al its haughty amusmant. "I will be
standing guard and so will some of the others so you can rest in
pease... We will inform you once Lady Bane get's back."
Hieicould say anything Vailmoor was on his feet and going out the
flap closing it tightly behind him.
could sence other elves already stood around the tent all on guard
and watchfull. With a sigh he looked down at Kurama, he was still in
his Youko form wich was worrying enough but at least he had him
back... after so long of thinking he would never see that face
again. he felt something hard hit his hand, he was crying, Black
tear jem's litterd his lap, and he realized that was probably why
Valimoor had left so sudden.
he curled up next to Kurama as his mate sleped, covering them both
in the soft warm sheat Valimoor had given him. He layed his head on
a broughd chaist listening to the rithum of the otheres heart.
slowly his eye's closed and he sliped into sleep.
found her self suddenly trying to carm Kin down. Her friend was
fureus. all she could get out of her was that the demon she had just
slaughterd had already lost his soul to some other power and she had
tried to eat his life-esanse with. by all acounts, was something
had no idea what the difrens was but Kin was going off on a fit of
anger which never bowed well as she pounced on her next victime with
a cry of fury.
calm down!" she tried to reson. "your only going to make
your self sick!"
up!" Kin stormed as she wriped the soul from a female demon who
just stood there her eye's wide with fear. "All soul's should
be mine if I so wish!... Who as the RIGHT to defiy ME!?"
sighed. "Kin I though you were here to help me?"
stoped the soul-eater in her trackes. as she turnd and gleard at
her. "I'm here to help my self!"
groned as she looked pashantly back at her friend. some time's she
wonderd why she was so close to the other demon. They had been
friends for the longest time, but they always acted like enamis, Kin
always seemed to be in competition with her and she didnt know why,
Bane had given up a long time ago and now just left Kin to it. She
didnt understand what kept them together, she loved Kin as a sister
even though there bondes of friend ship were sometimes streched they
still came back together in the end.
if your not carfull some of this scum might be able to still
reincarnat them selves... and you know I wouldnt like that..."
seemed to quell a little as she looked at the last of the demon's
who still lay on the floor still lost for wit."You would have
to call me back again.. and I hate an uncomplet soul... they dont
tast as sweet" she grinned as she advansed on her victim.
set her smile on her face again, the one she always ware no matter
what she felt. She turnd back to Kurayami who she had forgoten.
like your next" she told him as he still lay there looking
he looked up and his eye's were filled with amusment. "I think
not" he wisperd.
was just of mind to throw up her personal shealds as her own inner
barryer she had on the hall was suddenly wriped away.
all happend so fast, the vacume she had created now rushed to fill
the space in the hall. the walls buckaled and then bagan to colapes.
larg chunkes of sealing began to crash down at her feet, one barly
missing her as she jumped aside.
was on his feet now and laughing histericly, his hand's above his
head as he let his power go unchecked, corsing a mailstrum of havake.
her teath Bane began to chant, she lifted her arm's out to the side,
not notising the rubal and the debri that now asailed her. she throw
her head back with a cry then with one motion she brought her arm's
and head forwrds.
a cry of fury at being crossed she sent forth a beem of black soul
fire directly at Kurayami's cheast. It hit it's mark with acursy,
engulfing Kurayami in a black cloud of shear wild energy.
heard his cryes above her own as he was being burned through to his
very being. She knew it cursed down his every vane like glass filled
blood as she pored her soul into it in anger. No one crossed her
more than oce and thought they could get away!
part of the wall and sealing separating them colapsed cuting her off
time it was her turn to scream in agoney as the black soul fire
backlashed on her, she strugaled and fought with it untill finaly
she had it under controle.
someone screamed in her ear as she felt arm's about her, "Get
wrid of the second barrier, you stupid bitch!" it was Kin and
she was shaking her vilently. "I dont want to die in here cos
of you! you BAKA!"
maniged to get some sembalans of order as she found the thredes to
the barryer and dismataled it quickly. then she was awair of Kin
lifting her up and almost draging her out of the building that was
in it's death throws. the wall's groned as they colaped around them,
the air was thick with dust that they kicked up.
fumbled out side with Kin pulling her all the way as the mantion
finaly colapes completly behind them, wiping out all the sins that
had gone on within it's wall's.
felt the desturbans of power as he sat in his office, something big
had hapend in the makai. as he rushed out of his office there was
mayhem going on.
he screamed over the din. "What's going on?!"
demon lumberd up to him. "Boss" he said almost out of
breath. "Theres reports in that some one's just used the
forbiden 'Soul Fire' in a western part of the Makai".
gassped, he didnt think anyone knew how to pull that one off
anymore. "What caliber?" he demanded around his dummy.
lookd pail. "Black boss" he answerd.
nearly losed his dummy as he gasped. "Get Yuusuke and Kewabara
here now.. and find Botan imediatly!"
georg said as he lumberd off.
at least this time Enma couldnt blame this on his me, Koenma thought
was sat again at his desk as Yuusuke, Kewabara and Boten rushed in.
was the first to demanded to know what was going on. he stood with
his leg's slightly apart ready for action.
sighed. "Right... Forget everything, someone's used the
forbiden art of 'Black Soul Fire'..." He holted any questions
about it by holding up his chubby hand. "All you need know is
that it's powerfull and hasnt been used in a long time, I though it
a frgoten art, but it would apear someone knew what it was. No
soul's afected by it have been through here yet and thats worrying
me. We dont know who cast it, but I want you to find out who it
kick there asses!" Yuusuke promist him as Kewabara puffed out
Koenma answerd. "Who ever cast it might be weak right now, but
if they gane to much energy back from it then theres no way youll be
able to stop them... and if you could... avoid killing them. I'd
like to have a word with them."
do Koenma-sama" Botan shrilled as she cluched her ore in hand,
"But where is it?"
with sence" Koenma sighed. "Here..." he handed Boten
a gadgit that would take them straight to the desturbanse.
"This will get you there... from there it's up to you..."
he could finish he was alone in the office with a stack of papers
awaiting him. he just hoped that what ever it was would sort out the
problem with the influx of demon's that didnt belong in his part of
was woken up by something tapping his shoulder, he groned and found
him self looking in to Valimoor's worrid blue eye's.
your awake... has Kurama awakend yet?"
sat up, disliking to be found in such a vonrable position, "No
Baka" he snarled.
Elf sighed in what apeard to be releaf. "My Lady askes if she
may be permited entry?"
sat up fully, pushing the covers off his leg's he sat up. "What
dose she want?"
sat back a bit, "She wishes to cure Kurama of what now ails
him" he blinked then smiled, "Unless you could live with a
Youko who drink's blood and devours Ki?"
growled at him again. "I though that was taken care of?"
shruged then a look of pain crossed his face, "She leaves her
own bed to come and help, when I shouldnt let her up from it."
he looked at him pleading, "Please let her do what she must so
I can see her to bed and rest again... We fear we have been notised
and we must move soon".
snorted, "Then show her in than!" he snaped. As the Elf
got up and rushed out.
was tucking Kurama in when he heard Valimoor come back in. He turnd
to see Bane clinging to Valimoor's arm, she looked pailer than she
had earlyer but her smile was still there.
walked over to him and Valimoor helped Bane to sit down the other
side of Kurama, the elf looked worrid as he hoverd over her
shoulder, but Bane ignored him.
hasnt woken then?" she said and her voice sounded shaky.
shook his head as he sterd at her.
she smiled at him, "Wouldnt want him to bite you or anything, I
feel your rather attached to your Ki?" Then she lent forwards
and put her right hand on Kurama's forehead, then she glansed up at
him, "I would sugest you stand by the door" she said,
"And you too Valimoor, if anything gose wrong now I dont want
eather of you two
involved. Kin is just out side and she will sort anything out if
something were to go wrong..." her eye's narrowed for a moment,
"I want neather of you to interfear what ever happens.. you
swalowed, there was no way he was going to loos Kurama now. he opend
his mouth to say something when the elf cut him off.
my Lady!" he said in a destressed tone. "I wont let you do
this alone! I cant... I beg you to leave this till you are strong
enough... Please!" he was on his nees now and almost weeping.
glansed at him, "This has to be done and now... I dont have the
power to restrain Kurama once he awakens" her voice was cold as
she snaped, then a look of loss enterd her eye's as she reached out
and took one of the crying Elf's hand's. "Vali..." she
said more softly. "If I dont do this now I feer for your and
all the others safty... I dont want to see YOU harmed my
head snaped up at her last word. Bane smiled. "But I think Hiei
here feels the same as you, he want's no harm to come to his love...
but you must both be strong now.. for me and Kurama... Now go... Do
as I say."
slowly stood then backed away to the door. Hiei sighed, "Will
this take long?" he asked.
took her eye's off the other elf. "If I can help it, it will
take no time at all... Now go stand with Valimoor and dont interfeer."
nodded, there was nothing else he could do, then something Kurama
had told him a long time ago hit him, "I thought all lesser
vampires turnd ningen once the leader was dead... I thought you
smiled wider, "So did I?... but Kurama is a little difrent to a
ningen Vampire... now go."
fround as he stood, he still didnt understand what Bane's motives
were for saving Kurama, but there was nothing else he could do but
sighed as she looked down at Kurama, Hiei and Valimoor had gone, and
now she sat alone with the Youko.
smiled to her self as she thought of what Valimoor was now thinking,
she loved makng him worry, he was so good at it, and she had a
reputation to uphold. The thing she had to do to Kurama was an easy
job and wouldnt even tax her powers that much, and she couldnt help
being the drama queen, Even though she was tired bejond all baleaf
and if Kurama would have biten Hiei it would have made her job a
strocked Silver hair from Kurama's face then layed her palm on his
forhead. She closed her eye's then delved into Kurama's body.
was no resistans, The Youko was passed that in his slumber. She
easly found Kurama's Youko and human blood then swiftly began to
eradicat all the Vampire blood from every vain and kapilary, then
moving on to cells and tissu.
no time she had completed her job, andwith a sigh of exawstion she
puled away phisicly and mentaly.
stured and his golden eye's opend a crack.
back" Bane smilled down at him, he was gorgeause even though he
looked like he had just been draged through hell.
Bane?... what the hell?" He asked siting up.
what a greeting to an old friend" she laughed, "And after
I saved you and restord you back to your old self."
gave her a side way's look. "Are you going to explain?... or
just sit there looking smug?"
I think I can do both at once" she grinned.
rubed his head, He rememberd being traped in nothing ness, and that
his Human side was slowly being killed, Somewhere in the back of his
mind he could feel the aparition of him self that had been known as
GinHikari and all it's memoris... but with a jold he shide away from
them, he could studdy them later.. when all this was over and done
didnt manig to get Kurayami though" Bane said regretfuly.
"I have no idea how he got away, but he will be greatly weakend,
I dout he will ever recover... and so that's it, what to know
looked up at her, she want the pritist thing on any planit, but she
had a charm that very few apresheated. He remeberd meeting her quit
some time ago, and not for very long, she hadnt seemed to chaing at
all since that time.
put her head to one side. "Thinking about how we met?" she
asked with a customery smile.
couldnt help but smile back, "Ya... I was thinking it was a
long time ago and you havent seemed to chaing"
I've chainged" Bane said leaning back a bit, "But you
remember that night?" she grinned, chainging the subject with
ease. "we where both trying to mug each other" she
laughed, "How on earth did we end up in that tavern so drunk
neather of us could see straight?".
I remember right it was your idea" Kurama grined, "You
liked the barman but didnt do anything."
sighed, "Ya him... Well I dont have to find men now" she
grinned, "There now flinging them selves at my feet." she
waved a hand at the wall's of the tent. "no dout you can feel
we are surounded by people."
nodded, he could indeed, it had un-nerved him at first, but Bane
didnt seem to be botherd by it so he relaxd. "Who are
sighed as she lay back on the small bed they sheard. "There all
my follower's, all wanting me to pay them the smallist attention,
and there all so loyal..." she lifted her head and winked at
him, "And there ALL so hansum"
laughed, "Seem's you have a good life here then" he
pawsed,"amm?... where exactly are we?"
sat up, "We are in a forist in the Makai, which remeind me...
isnt there someone you want to be reunited with?"
breath cort in his throught, "Hiei" he breathed. The last
time they had been together was when Kurama could rememeberd looking
up into Hiei's pain filled eye's, fighting back tear's. He rememberd
trying to hold on to his last breath, as his heart stoped, he didnt
want to leave Hiei, not like that, not when he had finaly warmed the
fire demons heart. a tear fell down his cheak.
Bane said softly as she stood. "He's out side probably sick
half to death with antisipation" She smiled and it was jental
this time. "He almost gave up completly when he couldnt find
you... It must be nice to have that kind of love... Come" She
held out her hand to him.
took it and stood slowly on tired legs.
was growing impationt as he passed back and forth, Valimoor was a
