I warned you, thsi story will have MAJOR story spoilers. Ok, if you're sure...
Dis.: I OWN NOTHING EXCEPT THE PLOT AND MY FAT CAT.
Kathrine glared at me and unhooked the whip from her belt. The cracked it into the cell.
"No! Hi-kun!" I screamed. The Chibi Hiei fell to the floor and remained there motionless. I could hear Hiei and Yusuke both struggling against their bonds, trying to get to their brother. Kathrine turned on us and raised the whip.
"You're annoying me with your constant begging. I'll give you something to really beg for!" She grinned sadistically and cracked the whip. I cried out at the pain that blossomed across my chest. Kathrine was about to raise the whip again when a bright light caught her attention. The light was coming from the cell that held Hi-kun.
The Chibi was standing up and his whole body was glowing. His glowing form grew until he was half the size of a Sama stage Hiei. His clothes ripped at the seams, only his pants having anything left to cover him. The light died down.
"Nobody hurts my Onee-sama and gets away with it." He said in a deeper voice, his head bowed. Then he looked up. He had a cut going down his left eye. His new Jagan was blazing. Kathrine took a step back. Hi-kun lifted his left arm and Kathrine's whip burst into flame.
"Megan, get out here and do the dishwasher!" I jumped. Trust Dad to make me stop working to do something else. Hitting ctrl-S, I saved what I had of a chapter. I had run out of ideas anyway.
"Fine, I'm coming!" I got up out of my chair and hurried to do the chore. I was just finishing when I heard something in my room.
'Probably the cats again.' I thought, shaking my head. I went back to my room, intent on getting the cats out of my room and putting away what they knocked down.
Once I got into my room, I found that my manga box had been knocked off the shelf again and my mangas were all over the floor. My cat, Lily, was sleeping in the spot that the box had previously occupied.
"Gah, stupid cat, always knocking my mangas down. It's like she hates them or something!" I grumbled as I sorted the comics and put them back into the box. Pushing my cat off the shelf, I put the box back in its spot.
Sitting back at my desk, I opened another story file to work on.
Grinning evilly, I took out my CD player. Putting in my favorite CD, I hit play. I left the volume low so that I could stay alert in case one of my friends walked by. Not like they would have stopped me, they wanted revenge on Rob just like I did. Listening to the track, I started to sing the appropriate lines.
"You can say you're bored - If you wanna...
You can act real tough - If you wanna...
You could say you're torn;
But I've heard enough.
Thank you, you made my mind up for me
When you started to ignore me.
Do you see a single tear?
It isn't gonna happen here."
I watched in amusement as the prick's eyes went blank. He stepped away from Melissa and walked towards me. I pretended to just be walking causally by. I had to hum the tune to keep the spell from breaking, but it was worth the show. The professor would yell at me later for it, but it was worth seeing Melissa cry when he came to me just like I did when he went to her.
'When you return form your walk, Megan, come to my office.' The professor's voice sounded in my head.
'Crap.' I thought. I let my enchantment fade and I ran off.
I hit ctrl-S again and saved what I had. I scratched my cat; who had moved to my lap; behind her ears. Humming the song that I wrote down, I closed the file, resolving to finish the chapter later.
Looking at the clock, I took note that my parents would be leaving for their week-long anniversary trip in a few minutes.
'C'mon, five minutes till I have the house to myself!' I thought. 'And Mama'll come up the ladder in 3... 2... 1...' Thump, thump, thump, thump, thump, thump! Right on cue, my mom's head poked through the trap door that served to let me in and out.
"Meg, we're leaving, come down to say goodbye." She said. I nodded and lifted my cat off of my lap. Brushing myself off; my cat sheds like mad; I followed my mother through the trap door and down the ladder.
My parent's luggage was piled near the door. You could tell whose bags were whose, Mama's being green and Daddy's being blue. I hugged Mama and Daddy, giving them each a squeeze. I had to hold back our dog when they went out the door and I waved to them as the drove away.
"Yes, FREEDOM!" I cried, jumping up. Slipping my necklace with my key over my head and my shoes onto my feet, I put our dog into his crate and went outside.
Out in the park, it was almost sunset, so the older kids, pre-teens and the like, ruled the field. I passed all of them by, myself being older than most of them, and went to my corner of the field near the stone wall. I was surprised to find someone else in my spot. They were hunched over and shaking, like they had been crying. Curious now, I went over to them.
As I approached, the person, now identified as a female, looked up at me. Her light blue eyes were red and puffy from crying and looked frosty. I got the shivers just looking at them. She had blue streaks in her hair and had a small white puppy by her side. The pup got protective of the girl, jumping in front of her and growling at me. I stopped walking.
"Yo, you new around here?" I asked. The girl jumped, obviously not expecting anyone to talk to her. When she nodded I continued.
"I kinda figured, since I usually come over here. No big deal, though." I said. The pup growled louder. The girl looked at the pup and made a small growling noise. This whole time, I was feeling a sense of deja-vu, like I knew this girl. Holding out my hand, I helped her up.
"So, what're you doing here?" I asked, trying to make conversation.
"I don't know. I'm lost." She answered. Her voice shocked me. It sounded just like my own! I motioned for her to follow me.
"Come to my place. We got so many maps around that we're bound to find one of where you need to get to." I said. The girl hesitated but followed me.
Back at my house, I set out to look for a map. The girl explored the house a little.
"Where do you need to get back to?!" I called.
"Um... Yusuke's territory in the Makai. I'm looking for a portal, but there aren't any around." I dropped the atlas I was holding. For a second I thought she was joking, the Makai doesn't exist! But the tone of her voice told me otherwise. She was telling the truth.
Ok, next chapter soon!
