Field of Vision: Chapter 2
Even inside the church, Tohru shivered violently against the cold. Kyo couldn't help but feel something for this pitiful creature. After all, she wasn't an overly beautiful person by some standards. But Kyo begged to disagree. Even though she was soaked to the bone with a runny nose, he still thought she was beautiful...
"What the hell...?" he asked himself. What was he thinking? It frustrated him that he couldn't think straight right now. Either it was the girl that was sitting right beside him or the rain. Whatever...
He threw his jacket over her and yawned. "Now, what's this about no home?" He stretched again and slouched on the pew.
Tohru blushed despite the cold that pierced through her bones. "Thank you," she mumbled. She pulled the jacket around herself tighter and waited a moment to begin her story. "My mom...she--," Tohru paused and turned to face Kyo, but he was fast asleep next to her. She shook her head and left him to sleep. Soon, she, too, felt the urge to sleep and leaned on Kyo's shoulder. She yawned after closing her eyes and welcomed the euphoria.
Kyo shifted a little from the dream he was having. He cursed the rain for making him so tired that he just blacked out. Soon, the dream turned into a nightmare.
'What the hell is this?' he whispered to himself.
"Welcome, Kyo, to your end."
Kyo turned around from this sudden proclamation and faced the barrel of a gun.
Kyo woke up with a start from the loud crack of thunder and almost pushed the sleeping girl off the pew. He listened to the weather outside as Tohru calmed her fast-beating heart. The weather had gotten worse in their 10-minute nap and Kyo was getting more sluggish than usual. 'This isn't good,' he thought. If he didn't get back to the house pronto, he'd be in deep shi—
Wait, he thought. House—this girl doesn't have one. Damn, he muttered. What was he supposed to do now? For some frustrating reason, he couldn't just leave her here. But if he brought her back with him, he'd be in a bigger mess of shi—
"Excuse me," Tohru said, interrupting his thought process. "Are you okay? You look pale."
Kyo rubbed his face with his right hand and answered gruffly, "I'm fine."
"Oh," she replied. "I just thought that maybe you were having a nightmare..."
"My whole life is a nightmare," he snapped back. He sighed. "Sorry...it's the rain."
"It's okay, I understand." And with that, she smiled up at him as if the whole world was a beautiful and loverly place to be in.
"Why do you do that?"
"Nothing..." Kyo rubbed his eyes once more and got up. "Come with me," he said a little too hesitant.
"Where are we going?"
Not two seconds later, the doors burst open and lightning and thunder simultaneously flashed and sounded. The scenario would have been a comical cliché except for the fact that it was missing its humorous element.
Kyo turned around with his body on high-alert at the sound of the doors banging on the walls. He gasped and swore that his heart had almost stopped. 'What the hell is he doing here?!' Kyo felt his own body move back a few steps.
"Hello, Kyo," the stranger said. His voice brought about an air of death about him. His black hair flipped about his head with the wind rushing in, mixing with the blackness of his eyes. His black turtleneck along with his black pants hugged his form and almost made him look a bit weak. But Kyo knew better.
Tohru glanced at her rescuer. 'Kyo...'
He analyzed the orange-haired boy and smiled. "You look like you've gotten stronger. How strong are you, Kyo? Let's find out..." Before he finished, he quickly reappeared in front of him and startled Kyo. "Pathetic." With that said, he knocked Kyo across the church with one swift motion of his arm. "I think I'll take this young woman off your hands."
"Kyo!" Tohru heard herself scream. Her concern was overwhelmingly strong that it seemed that the room pulsed with her heart.
The stranger stopped in his tracks and felt his heart double in beat and his breath became short gasps. He turned around to face Tohru who scuffled backwards. "Wha-what the hell did you do to me?!" He clutched his heart and doubled over. He kneeled on the ground trying to steady himself. He glared at Tohru and tried to grab her arm.
The ground shook as he gasped even faster. Kyo looked around him and cursed before grabbing Tohru and her things. "Come on! Let's go!"
Tohru, still speechless from what had happened a few seconds ago, obeyed what she was told. She gripped his hand and they both ran out of the cathedral.
"That girl...that...bitch...who...who is she...?! AAAAARRRGGGHH!!!!" He shook violently and screamed before the building collapsed.
They both ran a few blocks down before Tohru had to stop to catch her breath. Kyo leaned against a chain-linked fence and calmed his breathing faster than she did. "Are you okay?" He managed to get out between gasps.
Tohru closed her eyes for a minute and calmed her spinning head. "I should ask you the same thing..." She pulled her hair back and placed her hand on her forehead. "You're the one who got knocked through two pillars!"
Kyo popped his neck. "Yeah, well it wasn't that bad. I can take it." He scratched his head. "Now, he's after her, too...," he said off-handedly. 'Why?'
'After me?' Before she could venture further, the whole world seemed to be underwater as it swayed back and forth in front of her eyes. With one last blink, she closed her eyes and let gravity pull her down.
"Tohru!" Kyo's voice echoing in her head was the last thing she had heard.
Kyo felt the pressure of every pair of eyes piercing into his being. He couldn't help but sweat underneath all the unwanted attention.
"Kyo..." It was Shigure who began. "Now...I know my motto's usually 'Mi casa su casa,' and so forth and so on, but I didn't know how far you'd go to test it." Shigure moved closer to the unconscious body. "She's not bad-looking, I'll give you that. Your good taste surprises even me--"
Kyo's skin prickled. "YOU BETTER NOT DO ANYTHING YOU PERVERT!" He suddenly forgot the situation he was in and stepped in front of the older man.
Shigure held up his hands in defense. "Hold it, Kyo, I'm not going to do anything—"
"But I am." Yuki unfolded his crossed arms and approached the orange-head. "I can't believe how mindless you are."
"Shut up! I don't need permission from you. This isn't even your house!"
"You're endangering everyone, Kyo. You know that? Have you even thought this through? Obviously, you haven't, from that 'stupid' face you're giving me. And I'm first in command. I am your superior, you low-life. I can kill you with one flick of my finger--"
Kyo felt his arm twitch and grabbed Yuki's collar. "I'm going to pound your face in you damned bastard!"
Yuki almost felt the urge to roll his eyes. "You're such a child. And if you want to talk about 'bastards' you should just look at your own pathetic life.
"Sh-shut...UP!!" He pushed Yuki away with the hand that had grabbed his collar and swung his other hand for a hook at the purple-haired boy's jaw.
"You'll never beat me," Yuki stated as he grabbed Kyo's wrist and stopped the punch. "You can never beat me." Yuki narrowed his eyes and sent chills down Kyo's spine.
Kyo hated to admit that even that cold stare had an affect on him. The only other person he had seen that look on was—
"Ugh...where am I?" Tohru groggily sat up and rubbed her eyes.
The two teens quit their little spat and turned their full attention on her. Yuki unruffled his Chinese-style collar and kneeled down by her side. "Hello," he said gently. "It seems that the sleeping beauty is awake."
Shigure's scalp prickled as he thought of Yuki stealing his line. Tohru blushed a little from his comment. Kyo fumed a lot from his comment. But this once, he would let it slide. Just this once.
"Eh...um...well, that is..." Tohru stuttered from being speechless on what to say next. But that was cut short when Haru stepped closer to her from his place that he stood for quite a while and placed his hand on her forehead. "You have a fever."
Tohru blushed again as another handsome young man approached her. Kyo turned his head from...jealousy? He ground his teeth. No, he thought. She was probably flushed from her fever.
Haru pulled his hand back thoughtfully. His actions did not go unnoticed by Yuki. He looked at Haru with tactful eyes. Haru turned around and said, "I'm going to get some ice...wherever that is." The last comment was made for himself seeing that it would take awhile for him to find it.
Shigure stepped from behind Tohru. "Well, now, that's a serious predicament you're in. We'd better put you in a room."
"What? No, I feel fine! Really! Eh, heh..." She tried to stand up but only succeeded in falling back down in defeat. Kyo moved towards her to make sure she was fine, but Yuki beat him to it. Tohru felt his hands beneath her head and on her arm. "No, we insist." He stood up. "Kyo, go fix her a room." Kyo's eyes widened in rebellion and he fought the urge to say, "Go do it yourself shithead!" But when Tohru's eyes met Kyo's, her face lit up with a smile and...he couldn't resist. He sulked and climbed the stairs in silence.
"Thank you so much," she whispered. "I-I don't know how to pay you back, but I promise I will make it up to you all some day." She was so grateful at this sudden turn of events. "Are you sure I won't be any trouble?"
Shigure shook his head. "Of course not! It'll be a nice change!"
Tohru bowed her head. 'Thank you, God...thank you...' Tears spilled from her eyes "Thank you so very much...I can't believe that you would just take a stranger like me in to your home..." She looked up when Yuki brushed away her tears.
"Mi casa su casa," Yuki said with a warm smile.
Again, Shigure felt prickles emaciating his skull. 'Whose house is this, anyways...?' he thought sarcastically.
"And once you feel better, you can tell us all about yourself, Ms—"
"Ms. Honda." She became captivated with his eyes as he said her name. Her brain felt numb as she concentrated on his beautiful grayish-purple eyes.
Tohru yawned slightly. "Thank you...again...," she whispered before falling into a deep sleep.
"You better not have done anything damaging to her." Kyo stepped from the shadows.
"Your empty threats bore me. Just take her upstairs." Yuki stared at him coldly.
Kyo furiously ground his teeth from making any noise that would wake the girl from her slumber. So, he picked her up and carried her upstairs.
He slid open the door to his room that was as clean as ten minutes could make it. He stuffed every dirty clothing in the hamper and threw it in the closet promising himself that he'd wash it later. Other than that, there was a futon in the middle of the room that was unrolled for her to sleep in. "Since there's not an extra room for you, I guess you can have mine...," he mumbled. "It's not much...but if you'll take it, it's yours." He placed her gently on the mat and covered her body with the blanket. Her clothes weren't wet, anymore, but he considered whether or not he should give her a new change of clothes. The thought embarrassed him to death so he opted to replace his jacket with a softer sweater on her. He replaced the blanket and turned off the lights. He turned around and glanced over the room to give himself reassurance of her safety until his eyes fell on her sleeping face.
It's so angelic...he thought. Unreal, ethereal, unearthly, heavenly, beautiful...He had never felt so calm in his life. All of his worries and troubles passed away like the sun chasing away the clouds. 'What are you..Tohru Honda...?' With that he slid the door shut.
Later that night, Yuki sat in deep thought on his chair. "What have you discovered about the girl?" he suddenly asked.
Haru emerged victoriously, stepping out of the kitchen with a bag of ice in his hand. "She's interesting. That's all."
Yuki looked up at him disbelievingly. "That's it?"
"Like I said. That is all." Haru turned around and walked upstairs to give the girl her ice pack.
The brows of the purple-haired boy knit together in suspicion as he watched the younger man's figure retreat back into the shadows.
"Yes, he felt something. I know; I can tell."
"Keep watch on that girl. And keep an eye on that half-wit, as well."
AN: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!!!! It feels nice to have two chapters done, so that when I update it'll be in the top of the list of stories again and, well, what a great way to advertise. Doesn't make sense? Sorry, I don't make sense when I'm half asleep.
Kyo and Tohru forever!
