The wind was blowing through the trees, as the moon was shining down upon the house. All the Sohma's where gathered in the same area, for the first time in a year. Yami was at the Head of the table, watching the others talk softly to one another. He could see some who were to afraid to be even near him,so they were trying to distract themselves by playing with their food. Another group would talk among themselves quietly. The others didn't mind all that much of his presence and eat their food. There was a knock at the door, which surprised everyone even Yami. He had told all the servants to not enter the room, no matter what. He cased his eyes coldly on the maid who walked in, looking as pale and horrified as humanly possible.

"Didn't I tell everyone in the house, not to enter? Why are you here"? Yami said this in such a way the maid stopped half way, to afraid to come any closer. This annoyed Yami, for he couldn't stand seeing her just stand there. He raised his hand and beckoned her to him. She walked quietly,passing the other family members,who seemed to not even know of her existence. As she stood beside him, she had her head down, not daring to look up at him, without permission.

"Tell me what you want. It better be a good reason as well, or you know what will happen". At the thought the maid shivered noticeably at Yami. She stumbled on her words making them unclear and inaudible. Yami became annoyed and started tapping on his glass loudly.

"Are you some kind of mute child? What is it! Tell me, before I cut off your tongue"! She jumped back and this time looked up at him.

She looked around once than moved toward his ear,softly whispering to him. Yami nodded slowly and shooed her away. She ran at the signal, leaving the room immediately without even looking back. Yami sighed softly and stood up from the table. This had caused everyone to turn and face him in curiosity.

"This event is dismissed. You all may leave". He said this in a flat tone and walked out the room without a single good-bye.

Keiko & Ichirou Sohma


Keiko was still attempting to warm up after the walk here. The snow had freshly fallen and the wind was softly blowing, but just enough to sting your fingers if you left them uncovered for too long. She didn’t even live that far from the estate. Thankfully Ichirou offered to give her a ride to school.

Seeing everyone was nice, even the ones she barely knew. They had a bond, something she could never get enough of. It was special and one of the things she could say that she held dear to her. Keiko was well aware of where the others stood on the bond, thanks to Ichirou and Xian, two of the only Zodiac that ever talked to her. But they were her best friends at the same time, so she didn’t mind.

Then there was a knock at the door, which surprised everyone even Yami. The terrified maid soon made her way to Yami’s side, and soon after, she was dismissed. "This event is dismissed. You all may leave.” He said this in a flat tone and walked out the room without a single good-bye. Ichirou was one of the first out the door, leaving Keiko to hope he remembered his offer. Keiko herself got up slowly, hoping to catch up with Yami. She had been hoping to visit, and she had no time to stay sadly, due to school. He was further ahead than she thought he would be but catching up was easy.

“Yami,” she said quietly as she walked a few paces behind him. “It was nice to see you again. I was hoping I could stop by again today, but after school. It has been some time since I’ve seen you and I feel sorry for it.” Keiko tried not to say too much, knowing how delicate Yami could be. Giving him a headache would make her feel terrible.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`

Ichirou walked quickly walked out to his car, where a familiar face awaited. “Is it getting cold in here Kishi,” he said, quickly jumping into the car. He rubbed his hands together as he started the car. “It is so damn cold out, I hate it. Can’t wait till it’s warm out.” Ichirou looked at his friend before pushing him lightly. “Come on, lighten up. Keiko’s school isn’t that far away so you won’t have to breathe the same air as her for long. Then we can go do whatever you want. That is, until I have to work, then you can come help me.” Ichirou squirmed out of his coat and threw it into the back of the car.

Ryuu
Ryuu watched as the terrified maid left the room. What was that all about? he thought, not even bothering to hide his confusion. He looked back at Yami, who suddenly told them they were all dismissed. We weren't even here very long.... he thought bitterly. He, for one, was hoping to get to know some of the others which he had yet a chance to do, and he didn't want to go back outside. It was cold outside, and sadly for him that wasn't a good thing. He had to bundle up stupidly to get here in the first place. Good thing the car should still be warm, he thought, finally feeling a bit better.
Getting up from his seat, Ryuu moved toward the door and put on his jacket. It was really an overly sized thing, but he liked the pattern on it so he didn't mind to much. "Goodbye!" he called to anyone in the room, flashing a smile before heading outside to get to his car. Once in the car, he started it up and waited for it to reach a decent temperature before he took off the coat and drove around. He wasn't working today, so he wasn't sure what he'd do.
----
Kishi
Kishi looked at Ichirou with a blank expression, getting in the car after him. He was happy to have a ride, but not so happy that that ride was going to be shared with a certain rat. Clenching his jaw, Kishi tried to contain all the outbursts that he knew would come if he let them. . “Come on, lighten up. Keiko’s school isn't that far away so you won't have to breathe the same air as her for long. Then we can go do whatever you want. That is, until I have to work, then you can come help me.” Kishi sighed and nodded some of the tension leaving his body. HE could ignore her for the short ride to school, right? "Okay, okay," Kishi mumbled, folding his arms across his chest. He may have been 20, but that didn't stop him from acting like a child a lot. He tried his best to not be bothered by Keiko, but it seemed whenever she was around it made him want to beat her at anything she did, which didn't really help his calmness level. "Just hurry up so we can get this over with."

Everyone ate their food and chatted amongst themselves; everyone was weary of the head; everyone was behaving in the typical fashion. Ateryu sighed and scanned the room through her fringe over and over again, looking for something interesting to make note of. The only thing that was out of place was a maid coming into the room. Yami seemed pissed at that; Ateryu smirked at the poor girl shaking before looking over everyone else. The younger zodiac would start school soon, and they were dressed in their school uniforms. Ateryu had refused to go to a school and was dressed in a plan black T-shirt and baggy black pants. It was cold but she hadn't remembered to bring a jacket. Oh well.

Without any explanation (as per usual everyone was left in the dark) Yami dismissed them and left, with Keiko following close behind. Damn suck up rat She scoffed and scolded herself. Maybe she was simply asking permission for something? Like a school trip or something. Ateryu shook her head and glanced at Nani. She would probably follow the rooster out of the room but for now she leaned back in her chair and continued to watch everyone.

Kishi
Kishi watched as Keiko approached the car, expression going blank when he saw hers turn to one of hate at the sight of him. He turned away from her best he could, barely paying attention to her as he clenched his hands into fists in his lap. Calm, he thought to himself, trying to relax. It was just a ride to school.
“Thank you very much for the ride Ichirou. It was very kind of you to offer me one,” he heard her say, making him wince slightly. She was always so nice to everyone, and for some reason that just made him angrier. Looking at the window, he tried to distract himself with anything outside. Kishi had always felt some sort of hatred for Keiko, but maybe hatred wasn't the right word. Just every time she came around he felt the need to yell at her or have a melt down.
He then heard her whisper, and he snapped. "No one asked your opinion," he growled in her general direction, hands clenching tighter if that was even possible at this point. "Hurry up, Ichirou," he said, rather harshly, to his friend in the drivers seat. This is going to be a long ride...
Ryuu
Ryuu was driving down the street, not really planning on going anywhere. He usually would go for a walk, but it was far to cold so that was out of the question. He then spotted a small place that looked like a coffee shop (it did say coffee on the sign) and parked close by. He didn't really want nor like coffee, but usually if a place had coffee is had sweets, and he was in the mood for a muffin or something similar. "Too bad I don't work today," he thought out loud. Usually he'd be at work, but he had today off so he was left with nothing to do.

It had been a cold walk to the main Sohma estate. Though Nani could drive she decided to walk with Yoshino to the family meeting.

The meal had been the same as always. Nani was absolutely terrified of Yami, of his every movement and word. She occasionally grabbed for her younger sisters hand under the table and glanced at Ateryu from time to time to keep her calm. Yet there was something soothing about being among the other Zodiacs, it felt safe and 'normal' to be around those you did not have to hide from.

Nani managed to stay calm throughout the meeting, after all she had people who she loved to keep her mind balanced. However, she became incredibly uneasy when Yami made an example out of one of the maids. It was not in her personality to be nervous of frightened in fact she was rather blunt but it was just a control Yami had over her ever since that day.
After the charade of bullying the maid all the zodiacs were dismissed and Nani was the first out of the door to the street. Though she did wait for the others just outside the main gate.
' He is such a bastard...' she muttered before exhaling out a long breath.

It was the same as every morning, apart from the fresh snow that lay on the ground. Kenji could smell burnt toast as he looked out of his window at the large Sohma estate.
A wet nose nudged his hand, Simone the family dog was ready to be let out back. He pushed open his bedroom door and the fawn coloured dog scampered into the sitting room to play with Kenji's uncle.

Kenji grabbed a towel, took a shower and began to put on his school uniform. It was the same average morning he had every day.

' Kenji I'm making toast do you want any?' his uncle yelled from the kitchen.

Rather than reply Kenji walked from his own room to the Kitchen and took an apply from the fridge and indicated that he would rather have that. His uncle tried to make small talk, it was often awkward between the two, having no real family connection they both often sat in silence.

' The Sohma family gathered again today... A whole bunch of them. They are such a funny family, don't you think?'

' I have to go to school Uncle, I will see you afterwards'. Kenji hated talking about the Sohma family, they were the talk of the school and now a topic with breakfast.

With that Kenji left the house passing the Sohma estate as he went, he saw a few people leaving. Whatever they had been up to was over.

Tatsuko stared at her plate, moving food around as the other Sohma’s chatted animatedly amongst themselves. She wasn’t in a particular mood to ‘talk’ with her fellow kin, so she opted for keeping to herself. She could feel Yami’s eyes glancing at everyone, watching them, following their every move. She felt a slight chill roll down her spine as she tried to ignore the feeling and poked at the food placed in front of her. Her head snapped up at the sound of Yami’s voice when a maid sauntered into the eating area. Her frightful stare said it all as she mumbled and stumbled over her words. Yami ordered her out of the area and the woman left bumbling about, not before whispering something into his ear. Tatsuko sighed as she pushed the plate in front of her.

”This event is dismissed. You all may leave,” were the magical words to escape Yami’s mouth as everyone jumped and left the room. She stayed, sitting at the table before watching the events unfold between Yami and Keiko. She knew that Keiko was attached to the head of the family. Why was a question she wanted to know. He was…cruel. She shook the thought from her head before she pushed herself out of the chair. She didn’t want to be in the house any longer and she forced her legs to walk towards the entrance. With a final glance, Tatsuko made her way towards her own home on the estate.



The sun was out, shining brightly as Tatsuko blocked the sun from her eyes. She was a part-time librarian and she was on her way to work. It required little to no physical contact, something she was grateful for, and she enjoyed it. It gave her time to reflect on what happened the previous day, or if something needed to be done soon. She watched the cars pass by and took a closer look at one in particular. It was Ichirou’s car. She recognized it and it brought a small smile to her lips as she noticed two passengers. Both had snow-white hair so she assumed one of the inhabitants was Keiko. He cared so much for the girl, it almost caused a tinge of pain to cross into her heart and the unrequited feelings he shared with her.

She knew the feeling all too well. Although she never really spoke to him, Kishi had nonetheless captured her interest. She kept this crush to herself, not letting the others know, especially Yami. They would ridicule her for having even the slightest sentiment for the cat. She sighed and groaned to herself. Love sucked.

Kishi
Kishi sunk lower into his seat as they pulled up by the school. He doubted anyone there would know him, but he still didn't want to be noticed. If a family member was there, he didn't want to see them. Kishi couldn't help from rolling his eyes at Keiko's thank you and Ichirou's lame goodbye. Once Keiko left, Kishi sat up a bit more and finally turned away from the window, looking less distressed. “Ready Kishi? The worst part of your day is over, that is, unless you make dinner a horrible explosion. So what do you want to do first?” "Oh, come on, I'm not that bad.... Okay, usually. And I don't know. Food sounds good, I haven't eaten today. Is there a sushi place around here somewhere?" he asked. He didn't really get out much, or at least eat out much, so he had no idea what was around.
Kishi had to hold back a snicker when Ichirou pulled away from the school. He drove a lot different when Keiko wasn't in the car. Kishi liked it when he drived fast anyways, but that may because it reminded him Keiko wasn't there. “This morning sucked ass, so well do whatever the hell ya want.” At this, Kishi finally laughed. "Yes, yes it did. But sushi is fine. There's nothing else I can think of to do..." he trailed off, sighing. Kishi wasn't really good with the whole "hanging out" thing, and he wasn't really sure what to suggest to do. "We can do whatever," he finally concluded.
Ryuu
Ryuu was hanging out in the coffee shop, nibbling at a muffin. He kept getting strange looks from the people inside, mostly because he wasn't leaving, just pacing around. He didn't want to go outside because of the temperature. He'd have to wear the stupid coat. But, he didn't want to spend his whole life in a coffee shop. "Maybe I should just go home," he thought out loud, too loud actually, since he got a few glares from people peacefully drinking tea and coffee. Ryuu rolled his eyes before sticking his tongue out at all of them.

"Oh, come on, I'm not that bad.... Okay, usually. And I don't know. Food sounds good, I haven't eaten today. Is there a sushi place around here somewhere?" he asked.

“This morning sucked ass, so well do whatever the hell ya want.”

At this, Kishi finally laughed. "Yes, yes it did. But sushi is fine. There's nothing else I can think of to do..." he trailed off, sighing.

“I got a place in mind. It’s sushi is a-m-a-zing! I’m sure of that as much as I’m sure of my name being Ichirou Suoh Sohma!” Ichirou pressed down a little more on the accelerator, whipping around a few corners and earning a fair share of honks. Once he finally went over what he said in his head, pulling up to the sushi joint at the same time, he spoke. “I didn’t sound gay saying that … did I?” With a sigh, Ichirou turned off the car and pulled on his coat. “I’ve never been here during the winter, so I’m praying they have heat or I might die.”


The sushi shop was small and quaint, quiet too. It was very nice, but not expensive nice. It always had a calming atmosphere and everyone was nice. It seemed perfect for Kishi. Ichirou was more of a rough and tough bar guy, but he tried his hardest to stay away from them. Getting arrested was bad on his reputation. Unless of course you were a girl, then it was flat out 10,000 points. “Maybe I should take you to a bar someday,” Ichirou thought out loud.

“Welcome to Sariya’s Sushi! Please take a seat anywhere and I will be back to see to your orders!” An older man said with an inviting smile.

“Thanks old man, will do,” Ichirou said, already heading towards a table.

"It's winter and snowy. Beautiful yes, fun to be in, not really." Ichirou still had plenty of time to kill before work, so takingba more fun route wasn't completely offf limits. Speeding around corners and flying down the streets was all fun and games, that is, until Ichirou saw a familiar head of blue hair outside a coffee shop he often went to. Ichirou whipped into tye parking lot and pulled up next to him. "Ryuu!! We are going to the gym to beat the snot outta each other. Wanna come?" Ryuu, the snake, was one of Ichirou's good friends, much like Kishi. "You can watch or join in, doesn't matter to me."

"MY GOODNESS who the hell is yelling- Oh, hello Ichirou. Kitty," Ryuu said, starting off yelling but switching to normal when he saw who was yelling at him. "Beating snot out of each other...? How could I say no?" Ryuu replied, grinning. He waved and started walking to his own car. "I'll meet you there!"

Ichirou sped off again, soon after arriving at the gym. “If you want’ you can borrow some of my gym clothes. I have a ton of clean ones in my trunk,” Ichirou said, getting out in a hurry. After grabbing his gym bag out of the trunk, he made his way over to the gym entrance. He was greeted at the door by a few people leaving that he knew. “Hey guys! Guess I’m not the only one crazy enough to come here when it’s freezing.”

“Not at all, but I guess we are the only ones. There is barely anyone in there.”

“Good, I’m coming here with my cousins. Boxing time!” Ichirou punched his fist, to look tough and walked past them. “Bye guys! Come on Kishi!”

"I've never been hear before," he finally said, earning a snicker from Ryuu who was a few steps behind them. Kishi turned to glare, causing Ryuu to grin and come closer to poke Kishi's forehead.

"Poor kitty, you'd think I'd stepped on you're tail with the look you're giving me," Ryuu said, trying, and failing, to pout like he was the one hurt. Kishi rolled his eyes and quickened his pace a bit to get away from Ryuu's lack of personal space, but ended up running into Ichirou's back.

"Shit..." he muttered, stumbling back a good few feet.

Ichirou didn't move an inch as Kishi bumped into him. "Aren't cats graceful and stealthy? Come on kid! Let's get ready," he said, leading them into the locker room. "Help yourselves," Ichirou threw his bag on the floor. After grabbing a pair of shorts and a wife beater, he quickly changed. "So who wants to duke it out first?"

Ryuu smirked. "Kitty should. Pay back for running into you, eh?"

The cat folded his arms, fixing Ryuu with a cold look. "You're fault," he muttered. "Sure, I'll go first," he said. "But I need to borrow gym clothes. Obviously. Since I've never been here I mean," he added, feeling stupid. Shaking it off, he changed into the spare gym clothes and picked at the shirt.

Ichirou grabbed Kishi’s hands, wrapping them up before putting them in some boxing gloves. After doing his own, he showed the pair to where the ring was. It was a rather nice ring for such a normal gym. But all that aside, it was fighting time. “You ready, Kishi? Let it all out cause I know it’s there!” Ichirou stood defensively with his gloves in front of his face. He was waiting to start for when Kishi made the first move. “You’re next pretty boy,” he shouted to Ryuu.

Ateryu raised her eyebrow at Daisuke and the whole commotion. Giving a soft smile at his persistence to express his hidden feelings for Rei, the ox stood to get some coffee. Nani was leaving to do her shopping and then go to the shrine, so Ateryu would have her coffee and meet her there.

After placing the order several things happened at once. Rei's boss yelled at her again and fired her, which was totally unfair. After that a friend who worked with her had some angry words to Daisuke and he ran out looking guilty, probably to go speak to his crush. The guy who was sitting at the counter also rushed out after speaking some harsh words to the owner of the cafe and Ateryu swore she had seen him somewhere. She blinked and let out a breath at everything before grabbing her coffee and taking a large gulp. The group had gone their separate ways, Yimme had gone to school after Rei fell and Nani had already left to do her shopping. There was no one interesting her to watch so Ateryu decided to leave as well. Waving and sending a friendly and apologetic smile to Rei's friend she walked through the door.

Daisuke, Rei and the guy from the counter were all outside chatting and she nodded to them, not wanting to interrupt but decided to offer some form of explanation. After the guy handed Rei something she walked over.

"Hey, Dai, I'm going to go catch up with Nani ok? You and Rei have fun, we'll all get together for a catch-up some other time. Rei sorry for how things turned out.....but don't worry I know something will work out. They always do I guess." She wasn't sure what else to say so she headed off. The morning had been certainly interesting but she was looking forward to having a few hours of quiet at the shrine.

The walk was peaceful and quiet as she sipped her coffee. It wasn't at all how she liked it...but coffee was coffee she supposed. She walked past a gym that had some people boxing and she nearly didn't give a second look. But the people in it looked familiar.... Was it... yes it was. There was Kishi, Ryuu and she figured it must have been Ichirou. Ateryu was about to wave a hello but they seemed very into their activities. With a smile she finished her coffee and kept walking.

Figuring she wouldn't be able to find her friend if she looked int he shopping area Ateryu decided to head straight for the shrine. It was a quiet walk and she took her time, stretching every now and then when her arms felt a bit stingy from the cold. Why was it so cold in these parts? She couldn't decide if she liked it or not...

Coming up to the shrine she could see people were already getting busy with chores and things. Maybe Taiga would have something to do for her. There was also the guy from the cafe...which would explain why he looked so familiar. She walked up to Taiga.

"Mornin', bit cold out today Taiga. Has Nani returned from shopping yet?" She wasn't trying to sound rude, she was blunt and hopefully the other Sohmas were used to it by now.

Keiko Sohma


Keiko's eyes flashed from the front to where he cousin was sitting, defying her rule to pay attention. "Takahiro-sensei? I don't feel very well..."

"Go see the nurse or call someone to come get you," the teacher muttered before turning back to her notes and continuing the lesson.

Before Yoshino made her exit, she glanced at Keiko and assumingly the Rabbit, Yimme. Keiko's face was a mask that held a tinged of worry for her slightly younger cousin. If she was truly feeling sick .... then that would be horrible. Keiko knows what it's like to feel sick, so of course she knew it wasn't fun. "Please let her be okay," Keiko uttered before trying her best to return her attention to her teacher. Reading ... yay, Keiko thought to herself. But now is not the time to be like this. I should be grateful for this lesson ...


Ichirou Sohma


Ichirou blocked the punch Kishi had thrown, slightly surprised. "Come on Kitty Kitty. This the best you got? I give you the chance to beat me up and this is what I get?" Ichirou threw a punch back, not hard, then jumped back to avoid anything coming to him. "Just think of all those times I beat you up, before we were friends. Do me a favor and do it to me!"

Kishi
Kishi glared at Ichirou for the kitty comment, but still didn't throw another punch. He had blocked Ichirou's punch fairly well, but could tell he hadn't tried to hit him hard. He knew for a fact that Ichirou could punch hard, and he hadn't.
"Just think of all those times I beat you up, before we were friends. Do me a favor and do it to me!" Ichirou half yelled at Kishi, but Kishi just kept his eyes fixed on Ichirou and unmoving. Sure, Ichirou had done some bad stuff, but Kishi's idea of pay back would be to claw his face off. But he couldn't do that because one, he was wearing boxing gloves, and two, they were now friends.
After a long sigh, Kishi shrugged and threw another punch, and another.

Ryuu
Ryuu leaned against a wall, watching the two guys fight. Well, it couldn't really be called a fight. It was more Ichirou teasing Kishi and Kishi just unmoving. What's his problem? Ryuu thought, but no sooner than he thought that, Kishi finally attacked Ichirou. Ryuu could tell he could do better, but at least now he was making an effort to hit Ichirou. The thing that bugged Ryuu however, was the fact that the cat's face had gone somewhat blank.
Shaking his head, Ryuu continued to watch. Kitty got some issues, he thought, only because he didn't want to piss off the cat while he already looked like he did.

Ichirou Sohma


After a long sigh, Kishi shrugged and threw another punch, and another. Ichirou blocked the punches, quickly countering, with mostly speed and not strength, with fakes to confuse the Cat before adding in the real punches. Then a somewhat familiar figure caught his eye. It was a girl who came to the gym when he was there sometimes. What was her name, he thought. "Yoko!" he shouted. Ichirou had the ability to keep boxing Kishi and look over at her every now and then. She seemed to be releasing some of her own stress as well. His eyes shot back to Kishi. If she wanted to talk, she would catch his attention.

Kishi
Kishi blocked the first punches easily, got hit by a third, but managed to step out of the way of the last one. He then noticed Ichirou look somewhere else, but didn't bother looking too. Whatever it was, Kishi didn't need to know. Then, he yelled at someone. Finally, Kishi glanced over to where he was shouting, just in time to see some girl get knocked out by a punching bag. Kishi still had his guard up against Ichirou, but managed to split his attention to the girl also. "Should we... I dunno, go help her?" he asked, shifting awkwardly on his feet as he looked at the unconscious girl, Ichirou in his side vision.
Ryuu
Ryuu was starting to get bored, and noticed a girl come in and start punching a punching bag. Then, Ichirou called out her name, causing he to look away from the bag. At this point, Ryuu already knew what was going to happen. By the time he opened his mouth to say something along the lines of, "watch out", she had already been hit. "Good job Ichirou," Ryuu mumbled, before laughing a bit for no real reason.

Ichirou Sohma


Thud, the noise almost made Ichirou jump. "Should we... I dunno, go help her?" he asked, shifting awkwardly on his feet as he looked at the unconscious girl, Ichirou in his side vision. Ichirou simply nodded as he threw off his gloves and jumped out of the ring. He didn't rush to Youko's side, considering the fact that if she woke up she might be a little more than angry that he was laughing. Yes, Ichirou was laughing at an unconscious girl. He put out an arm to stop the punching bag from swinging, kneeling down beside her. Something he often did when trying to avoid laughing was holding his nose. Ichirou was holding it so hard it might not have been surprising if it popped off.

After a few deep breaths, Ichirou reached down and ever so lightly slapped Youko a few times on the cheek. "Hey, you okay? Wakey wakey, eggs and bakey."

Ichirou Sohma


Ichirou was beginning to think the issue might be more serious than he thought when a certain elbow flew into his stomach. An almost dry heave escaped him, his breath escaping his lungs rapidly. "What are you looking at, don’t you pansy ass mofo's have some working out to do?!" Ichirou looked up to see a rosy faced Youko looking frantically around the room. Once he caught his breath, he couldn’t help but start to laugh again. Ichirou stood slowly, patting the girl on the back once he was completely upright.

“Chill out chic. The only reason they are here is because they have no lives, it’s all they know. Even me,” he said, walking back over to the ring. “Ryuu, why are you just standing there? You could be doing something constructive while kitty kitty is beating on me.” He hoped back in, slipping on his gloves and punching Kishi on the back slightly. “Wanna keep going? Or are ya tired?”

Ryuu
Ryuu was holding his stomach laughing at the sight of the red faced girl yelling at Ichirou. "She's adorable...can we keep her?" Ryuu asked between laughs, trying to compose himself a bit. He glanced at Ichirou, who was now getting back in the ring to beat up Kitty-boy, and then back at the girl. Getting up, he walked over to the crouched girl and eyed her. "Yup, would make a good pet indeed. Come on Ichirou, I'll feed her and everything!" he said, pouting like a little boy and looking back at his friend.

Kishi
Kishi was staring dumbfounded at the scene before him. They were all crazy. Then again, wasn't he also. Shaking his head, Kishi tried to refocus his thoughts. Just in time too, as Ichirou was coming back in the ring while Ryuu said something about keeping the girl. He said it in an innocent way, but Kishi himself wouldn't want to be in the same house as Ryuu for a night.
Ichirou, once again, was taunting Kishi. Glaring at his friend, Kishi threw a punch toward Ichirou's face, mostly to distract him, and quickly added another punch to his stomach. "You can be annoying, you know that? Yeah, I'll keep goin',''Kishi said, sticking his tongue out at his friend.

"You can be annoying, you know that? Yeah, I'll keep goin',''Kishi said, sticking his tongue out at his friend.

Ichirou dodged some of the punches while the others landed. “That the best you can do? If I’m so annoying, then land a good one and knock me out for a week!” Ichirou punched at Kishi, glancing at Ryuu who was examining the girl kiddingly, as if she was a puppy. “Ryuu, you are single handedly the worst person to possibly take care of a living creature.” Ichirou laughed to himself, dodging then punching at Kishi again. “So yeah, you can keep her.”

Youko looked over at the boy who said that and gave him a once over.

"And who...pray tell...do you think you are?" she asked with a smirk as she placed a hand on her cocked hip.

“Ryuu, you are single handedly the worst person to possibly take care of a living creature.” Ichirou laughed to himself, dodging then punching at Kishi again. “So yeah, you can keep her.”

"I'll make you a deal, you beat me in a fight and ill consider it...." she said jokingly as stared at him.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"You'll be okay on your own? Here" he handed her some money while he kissed her lips once more. "I promise I'll make it up to you....tonight? Maybe depends on how long this job is. I will call you. Please don't be mad but one of us has to keep our jobs right" he winked. "There's a few sohmas at the shrine why don't you visit them so you don't get lonely" he waved before running off.

Rei smiled at her...boy friend....as he walked away. She sighed lovingly and grinned before she started for the shrine.

Ryuu

Ryuu snickered seeing her expression go surprised for a brief second, and them changed to something that looked like uncaring. She got up and went to the ring that was empty, ready to fight him. Ryuu rolled his eyes, but was grinning. "You coming sugar?" she asked, causing Ryuu to just start laughing, for no real reason.

"Yeah, yeah, I'm coming," he said finally composing himself. Walking over to the ring, he hesitated briefly before joining her in the ring.
"This kind of goes against my beliefs of not hitting girls," he commented, tilting his head to the side a bit as if thinking.

Ryuu
Ryuu's eyes caught the slight change in movement before she crouched, already assuming what she'd do. When she attempted to trip him, Ryuu simply jumped up and back a little before making a tsking sound at the girl. Though he wasn't the best fighting, he did have one good thing with him. The fact that he was fast to react and attack, something he blamed on being "snake qualities" but for all he knew it had nothing to do with that. However, if she did manage to knock a good hit on him, he wouldn't last long. He bruised easy, and hated getting bruises. Especially on his face. If she hit him, he'd probably call the whole thing off.

"Ladies first," Ryuu said, grinning before bowing slightly at the girl.
