“Oh gods... you’re a girl!” He breathed. Kaoru becomes a 'Mulan.' But the story has a twist as Kaoru gets caught in the 3-way power struggle. And who was the silver-haired man who stole a kiss?

"No... no, no, no. That wouldn't do at all! That would just ruin the fun!"
The voice was much deeper now. More... sensual. With each word, he breathed against her cheeks, puffing little clouds of air into her own shocked mouth.
IMPORTANT! Okay, umm... maybe this was a bit confusing but I read over the chapter 2 and realized that I had a typo. And being the lazy person that I am, I'm not going to fix it, (until I have enough time) but just tell you here. After the Enishi incident and Sano came into see Kaoru with Megumi, I meant to type that he had no relationship to the Sagara in the Shinsengumi. Well, gomen(sorry) for all the troubles!
Japanese Mulan With a Twist
Chapter 3 – Attraction and Seduction
Disclaimer: sigh I only wish I owned him. The only thing I do own is my puppy... I don't even own this computer!! Okay... maybe I own the mouse pad but that's IT!
Kaoru's eyes widened.
"What are you doing!?" Kaoru squeaked.
"This..." he gently pushed his mouth against her pulsing neck. "would be kissing your neck."
Kaoru gave a slight gasp.
Then, with what little chance she had, she gathered her muddled thought and rolled to the side and fell off the bed.
"Itai!(ouch!)" Kaoru said and clumsily got up and while running in no specific direction, took off the bandage Megumi had wrapped on her head.
Everything was blurry. She could hardly see anything and the world seemed to be dizzy. She heard the door open and ran towards the sound. She saw familiar spiked brown hair and slumped against its body, silently hoping that it was Sagara Sanosuke.
There was a God!
Ha! It was Battousai!! First question answered!! Now... why was he seducing her?
"Himura!! I thought that you were going to interrogate her!! Not seduce her!!"
That was Makimachi Misao speaking, Kaoru thought.
"I was..." Kenshin's sheepish voice came.
He is such a liar!
"Sano... please check if our prisoner has fainted or not," said Kenshin. Kaoru quickly relaxed her muscles as Sano poked her.
"Yup. Sleeping like a baby."
Keh. You wish!
"Okay... I was thinking. If I was in a relationship with Kaoru... then I might be able to persuade her into joining the Ishin Shishi."
Relationship!?!?!?!? Leaving the Shinsengumi!? No way!!
"Really, Battousai. What brought this idea to the head?" Aoshi said.
"Aoshi," Kenshin said, his voice had a hint of tiredness. "We can use her. She's powerful. Not only that but incredibly attractive. A female samurai? I know many men who would laugh at the idea but there are some. The only female samurai out there are more powerful than most of the men out there. And we've got one!! In our hands! Why let her go?"
"Hmmm..." Aoshi murmured.
"We have weasel. And don't tell me she ain't a good fighter, cuz she is!" Sanosuke defended her hotly.
"She's not a samurai," Kenshin countered. "She's a ninja."
"Then... what about Tomoe-sama?" Megumi asked.
There was an awkward moment and Kaoru peeked slightly to see what's going on. Everyone was glaring at Megumi except Kenshin who was looking away.
God... I'm getting tired of all these awkward moments!
"That... is none of your business."
Then the next thing Kaoru heard was the door slamming before the her worn-out body couldn't take anymore and she fell prisoner to sleep.
Kaoru rubbed her eyes sleepily and yawned. Then she was on full alert. She was in the den of the enemy; she couldn't afford to slack off. She quickly glanced around the room. There was no one-
"You are awake?"
Damn! How could I have missed him!! He was standing in the corner, you baka!
"Well, obviously," Kaoru snapped back.
"I want to know what you think."
Kaoru looked at him. Truly, looked at him. He was tall. He had these cool blue eyes that seemed to chill you to the core. He was dangerous in most aspects. His hair cascaded around his face. His chin was at a sharp angle. She gathered these facts in a matter of seconds.
"Think of what?"
"The debate from last night."
Kaoru took a quick breath of air. Did he know? Did he know that-
"Yes, I know that you were awake. Zanza messes up quite a few times."
Damn. "I don't know what the hell you're talking about."
He took a step towards her and said, "But I think you do."
"I-I-I don't know!" she stuttered. Shinomori Aoshi looked taken aback for a moment. She looked very fragile and delicate sitting there.
He looked at her with chilling eyes. She sighed and plopped back on the bed.
"Okay, maybe I do."
"And your opinion?"
"Over my dead body."
"Ahh... If you feel that strongly... I haven't introduced myself, have I? Shinomori Aoshi, also known as Okashira of the Oniwabanshu."
"You share that title with Makimachi Misao. Sagara Sanosuke, Zanza, is related to the Sekihoutai. Himura Kenshin, Battousai, was one of them who started the Ishin Shishi with Katsura. Takani Megumi is one of the last of the Takani that come from an impressive doctorate lineage. You're all incredibly famous."
Aoshi smiled. "And you are?"
"Just Kaoru? No last name yet?"
"I have one but Kaoru will do. For now."
"But why have you told me so much? I mean, if I were you, I'd pretend to know nothing to keep the enemy off balance."
"You've been honest with me. I owed it."
"You believe in such foolish things-"
An alarm went off.
Battousai burst into the room, his eyes clouded with anger and burning bright amber. He glanced over her and looked at Shinomori.
"We've a war on our hands."
The next couple of days were hectic. More for Kaoru than anyone else. She was passed from person to person and definitely felt bad about that.
"I hate it! I don't want to be passed around like an item!! I'm a person, dammit!! Respect me and my feelings!"
"Busu, jeez, I'm only supposed to watch you until Tae and Tsubame gets back! Don't get drunk on me now!"
Kaoru shook her sake jar and gulped down another big sip.
"Yahiko-chan, (Don't call me that!) would you like a sip?"
He growled at her.
Kaoru giggled and hiccupped and petted him on the head. "Nice puppy!!"
"Yahiko?" Misao walked in. "I thought Tae was in charge of watching her this week! What happened?"
"She went to get something. Could you watch her for me?" Without waiting for a reply, Yahiko scurried out of the room.
"Misaaaaaaaaaao-chan!! You're soooooooo beautiful!!!! I siiiiiiiiing my sooooooooooooooooong for you!!"
"Ehh... How'd you know my name?"
"Of cooourse I know your name!! How could I forget such a beauty's name?"
Kaoru started walking towards her, swinging her hips in what she thought was a seductive fashion. Misao squeaked and took a step back.
Their lips touched the moment that Megumi, Sano, Aoshi, and Kenshin walked in.
A/N: I'm not much of an yaoi/yuri fan but I can get perverted when I want to. This was five pages in font 10 in Comic Sans MS. Enjoy the chapter? Hated it? Leave a review~
