(Disclaimer: I don't own Yuyu Hakusho, unfortunatly. For, if I did, I would
have all my fics come to life in a movie! Oh well. *huggles Hiei plushie*)
(By the way, this is another Hiei/Botan. It isn't the sequal to "One Day,
Hiei" though. I dreamt this up and had to write it. The sequal will be up
as soon as I can choose the two ideas I have for it.)
"SPIRIT GUN!" Yusuke yelled at the top of his lungs.
"Baka! You missed!" Hiei yelled from his position as the blue beam hit him
hard in the chest.
"Quit yellin'!" Kuwabara yelled, "It's not his fault! The guy dodged!"
"Quit arguing and help me!" Yoko Kurama yelled as he hit them both in the
back of the head.
"Right, let's go ,Kurama!" Hiei yelled, joining Kurama.
Botan was watching on her oar, trying to figure out how the demon had
gotten loose into the Ningenkai.
"Koenma sir," Botan said over her communicator compact. "I don't understand
how the demon managed to get here! It's some sort of spider demon. It's
"Yes, I understand that, Botan. You need to give the boys the following
Koenma scanned some writing through to the screen. Botan looked around to
see who was open. It appeared to be Hiei, who ws being covered as he
charged his Dragon of the Darkness Flame.
"Hiei!" Botan yelled, floating down to the koorime.
"What do you want?!" Hiei yelled, frustrated.
"Koenma gave me information that you might need to know!"
"Not right now I hope!" Hiei yelled as he let loose the Dragon of the
The demon let loose a web that collected all of it.
"Dammit," Hiei thought alloud.
The web shot the Dragon back at them.
"Botan, dammit, move!" was the last thing she heard.
"Ugh, oh," Botan moaned as she opened her heavy eyelids.
Her body hurt all over and it pained her to sit up. She realized she was no
longer in her pink kimono but in baggy gray pants, a white tanktop, and
covered in bandages.
"Hello?" she said, not knowing anything else to say.
"Hello," Yukina said.
Botan realized she was now at Genkai's temple.
"Where are the guys? Are they alright? What happened?"
"Let me answer this one question at a time. First of all, the guys are at
Kurama's having tea. Second, they're fine, except for a few burns of Hiei's
hands due to him trying to push you away and failing. You were hit head on.
Hiei tried to push you out of the way but it ws moving too fast. Kuwabara
carried you here and I changed your clothes. Genkai isn't here right now,
though, so it's just me and you."
Botan sighed, then perked up.
"Hiei tried to save me? As in, he made an attempt?"
"Hiei's a hard person to figure out," was all Yukina had to say.
"I have to learn to protect myself so I won't always get hurt," Botan said
to herself, "Perhaps, nah, Hiei'd never train me. Maybe Kurama..."
"I'm sure Hiei would be willing to teach you for a price," Yukina said, not
making eye contact, "He's really sweet if you look under that tough
"Yeah, right," Botan said, as she stood and headed out of the room. She was
sore but she could deal with it.
"Hn," Hiei answered to Kurama's question.
"My goodness Hiei," Kurama said, "All I asked you was if you made an
attempt to help her. God, is that the only answer you have?"
"To questions I don't want to answer."
Kurama shook his head and ate some more cheesecake. Kuwa and Yusuke had
finished thiers and started thumb wrestling. (-.-')
Hiei stared out the window, thinking, "Yeah, I tried. Jeez, who cares? I
wish they'd stay out of my business."
He looked down at his bandaged hands before taking his leave to no one's
He lay in the tree, his eyes closed, trying to drift off to sleep.
"Hiei?" Botan's voice pierced his ears from the bottom the tree.
He opened one eye. "What do you want?"
"I'd like to make you an offer," Botan said.
"What kind of offer?"
"Well, it's about fighting."
"Step into my office," he said, backing up on the branch to leave room for
She clambered up with great struggle and sat.
"Okay, I wanna learn how to defend myself, but I need a trainer so-"
"You're asking me," Hiei interuppted, cocking an eyebrow.
"Well, yeah," Botan said.
"Hmmmm, what's in it for me," he said, seeming to be in deep thought.
"Well, you won't here me whining for someone to save me and...um..."
"Ah!" she said snapping her fingers, "How about I teach you how to get a
Hiei tilted his head slightly.
"A girlfriend! You know, when you go out on dates, and kiss each other and-
"If you get a girlfriend, you'll have something to keep you busy when
Kurama's out and-"
"You could double date with Yukina and Kuwabara and make sure he doesn't do
Hiei stopped a minute,"True."
"So you will?!"
"Yeah, I guess. You have yourself a deal. Meet me in the school gym
"Oh thankyouthankyouthankyouthankyou! I won't letcha' down!" she said
"I wouldn't get so confident yet. I suggest you catch up on your sleep.
I'll see you at four a.m."
"Yeah, and if you don't come, it's off. See ya'," he said as he walked
"Eh heh, I'm sure I can handle it," Botan said nervously.
