A/N: Hi.(sniff) Not in a very good mood right now so please excuse any
lousy punctuation or whatever. (My mom took my CD player and she's
grounding me from it for a month.) Wahh!!!! Anyway here's (sniff) chappie
A/N: I forgot a disclaimer for like 7 chappies! (Uh-oh. (Laughs
nervously) Don't sue... don't sue. I put it up in this chappie! (Nod nod)
Disclaimer: I don't own Rayearth or any of the characters they belong to
the group of CLAMP, I just own the VHS of the first 4 levels (episodes) and
Kyuko. I'll say this crap again I don't own Rayearth.blah.(continues on for
like an hour) And multiply it by 7!
Chappie 9: Fuu and Ferio: Test of love and devotion. Lantis enters!
They opened the door slowly, walking in, they saw a garden. One part was
full of life and the other bare. Someone spoke.
" Ah, I've been expecting visitors! Come in!" a girlish voice said.
Walking onto the soft dewy grass they could see a little girl about the age
of 8. She smiled then ran to them saying.
"Hi! Hi! I'm the Guardian of the Wind Jewel! You've come for that right?
Ferio stared then whispered to Fuu," That's the guardian?!"
"Well, sometimes they might use the form of a youth to fool people."
Grinning the Guardian jumped around and said," Yep! You're right!!Whee!"
The two sweatdropped. And the guardian said," Oh yeah before I give you
the jewel, you have to take the test!"
Walking over to a entrance of a path (literally, maze). She disapperead
in bright light and grew taller.
"Humm.I was wondering when someone would chose the right door so I could
actually give the test and give out of that form." Looking at Fuu and
Ferio, she continued and said, "The two of you will go into this maze. Both
of you will start at different ends of the maze. If you manage to reach
each other and get through the exit, I will give you the jewel. This test
will see if you are strong of heart and truly love each other. Good luck,
my your hearts lead you to the right path."
Kissing each other one more time, Ferio and Fuu disappeared and found
themselves in different locations. Sighing they started out hoping and
knowing they would somehow find each other.
Fuu walked around unsure of with direction to go she had her bow out and
was ready to fire at anything. Rumbling came and a large monster stepped
out. Looking slightly thin and starved Fuu did not wish to kill it. It
started to attack her. 'I know that I might later be called an coward but
she ran anyway.'taking so many different paths she really got lost.
Wondering where to go, Fuu closed her eyes. And thought. 'Ferio where are
Ferio looked around and traveled forth several steps. He heard a
familiar voice in the wind. 'Ferio.' he heard reaching a fork. His instinct
told him to go into the middle, but his heart told him to go left. He
decided to follow his heart. To his surprise, there were no obstacles in
Fuu was scared; accidentally taking the wrong turn without noticing it, she
had run into several monsters, closing her eyes she forced herself to calm
down. She would make it through.
Meanwhile, Lantis had woken up with a bloody headache. "Damn." He
muttered. Looking around and taking out the map Clef had given him, he
concluded that he was in the east. About a ½ days journey from the palace.
'No use going back now. there's nothing to get or do besides sit and
twiddle your thumbs.' He sighed and got up. The temple was about 1 days
worth of walking. Noticing the sun slowy setting, he climbed onto a tree
near the road and fell asleep on a branch.
Clef walked down the road with Umi. Both were happy and excited. They
were halfway down with their quest to get the jewel. All they needed now
was the Jewel of life. The other thing was that they hoped the rest of the
group had gotten at least one jewel. They would rescue Hikaru in no time!
Their heavy moods lifted the continued down the road. A masked man stepped
into their path.
He spoke in a raspy voice." You will not pass here unless you defeat me."
He drew his sword and said," Who will fight?!"
Clef whispered to Umi, "I will fight him so you can go on and get the
other jewel." Seeing her stubborn look, he said,"You wanted to rescue
Hikaru right? Go on and continue without me to get the other jewel! Without
waiting for this fight to end, you will be at the temple faster!"
Umi said sadly," But what about you?"
Clef responded in a more confident voice that was hiding his fear,"
Stop worrying about me and go! I will fight him!" Kissing each other once
more, Umi ran down the path while Clef stepped out and said.
"I accept your challenge."
The masked man smiled evilly. "You should have followed your little
friend there. Because now I'm gonna take you back and make your head a
trophy on my walls!"
'Dammit!' Clef thought.'Why didn't I notice earlier? He's a man-eating
shape shifter!' He quickly tired to say a lightining spell but his opponent
had already turned into a giant bird and scoped him up. Cursing himself for
letting that small fact slip away from his noticed. Tying to say the spell
again, the giant bird's claws hit him hard on the head, knocked him out and
flew away. He could only hope that Umi had gotten away safely.
Somehow, both Fuu and Ferio had made it through the maze safety after so
many twists and turns. The only thing left between them was a giant worm.
And it looked hungry. Knowing each other was there on the other side, Fuu
drew an arrow back on her blow and fired it. The hit the worm in the middle
but otherwise, the worm did not seem to be affected by the shot. Storing
her bow and arrows away back in her jewel. She summoned her sword and began
to slice away parts of the worm with Ferio.In the en, after slimy worm guts
and body part (A/N: I'm getting a little too gory here.) parts. (A/N: I
know that was short but I couldn't think of anything else for them to do!
I'm trying to bring this story back to a more Clef/Umi.) They wiped away
the slime and ran to each other. The hugged and kissed (A/N: You know the
stuff) and after breaking away, Ferio walked over to the sliced up body of
the worm, and picked something out from it. He held it up and Fuu walked
over to him. He was holding a medium sized shaped leaf that could almost
fit into the palm of your hand. Admiring it, he smiled and held Fuu closer
to him. He put the jewel into a pocket and sighed. They had made it though
the first test.
A/N: I know this chappie wasn't all that good and I might have to edit it
again. Sorry, I had a slight writer's block for it. I was wondering who
should get which jewel. I was gonna make- (er. I'm giving away a bit too
much!) So the next chappie should be Lantis mainly, but who knows? I might
just change my outline.
Preview of chappie 10: The jewel in another's hands! Trouble for Lantis!
Stirring slowly, Lantis noticed something on his chest. 'Oh shit.how'd
I get a squirrel and a pile of acorns on my chest?' Sighing, he tried to
poke the squirrel off him but it only chattered angrily and bit his finger.
"Just my luck" he muttered. " Instead of looking for the Jewel. I managed
to find an angry squirrel."
A/N: I decided to add SOME comedy into this story. It was getting too
serious for my liking. (A/N: sighs. will Lantis ever get rid of the
squirrel?) Tune in next time and find out!
