Kyo woke late in the afternoon, having caught up on his much needed sleep. With a heavy sigh, he opened his heavy eyelids, to find Yuya making an early dinner. Immediately, several rude remarks came into his head, and a mischievous grin plastered itself onto his face.
"Ugly!" he called, positioning himself better so that he could see her reaction, "I hope you don't cook as bad as you look." He silently cheered himself on when he saw her body stiffen, and her knuckles tighten and whiten as she gripped the spoon she was stirring with.
Taking a slow, deep steady breath, Yuya continued to stir, not letting him get the full pleasure of her reaction. Usually she would have started cursing and yelling at him, but she was still not in the mood to deal with his stupidity.
"Did I hit a sore spot?" his grin still on his face.
Grinding her teeth, she refused to respond, and focused her attention on stirring the soup. Letting it sit, she got up and moved away from the pot and back over to her things to get a bowl out. She would not serve him.
"Don't forget to taste it first. I wouldn't want to poison myself with your cooking." Kyo remarked watching her jaw muscles twitch.
In the blink of an eye, Yuya had stormed over to him, and was holding the wooden spoon like a club.
"You don't know when enough is enough!" She ground out as she hit him over the head with the spoon with enough force that it broke.
Furious now that she had broken the spoon on his ridiculously hard head, Yuya stormed back over to her belongings and began searching for a new spoon, leaving a shocked Kyo in her wake.
"Bitch." Kyo whispered as he stood and grabbed Yuya by the neck and slammed her back into a tree.
With a startled yelp, Yuya look down at Kyo who held her neck in a vice like grip.
"Do not forget who you serve woman." Kyo spat out, his demonic eyes glaring long and hard at her with the promise of death.
Grabbing his hand with both of hers, Yuya began to apply pressure until he dropped her. Standing as tall as she could, Yuya glared back at him.
"And you don't forget who you're dealing with. I've dealt with nastier things than you Demon Eyes Kyo, and as you can tell, I'm still in one piece. I can't say the same for the fools who tried to kill me, but let's just say they found out why people say never give a gun to a girl." Yuya's eye s seemed as dark and dangerous as Kyo's, and he could tell she was telling the truth, but then again, none of the people she had faced could compare to him.
"Mind your place woman." He growled darkly.
"My place," Yuya said pointing a finger at his already close chest, "Is away from you. All you do is cause trouble and insult me, even though I do my best to help you. You," She said beginning to poke him repeatedly with her finger at every word, trying to emphasize her point, "Are and ungrateful, disgusting pig of a man, and I hope that I never see your ugly ass face ever again."
Grabbing her finger tightly, he applied just enough pressure as to hurt it without breaking it, receiving a stomp on his foot from Yuya in return.
"Damn bitch!" Kyo grunted releasing her finger which she cradled in her other hand.
"All you are is a pig of a man. Why don't you go find yourself a whore house. At least they will make you happy." Yuya snapped as she pushed past him, purposefully ramming her shoulder into his.
Kicking over the pot of soup she had been making, so that Kyo would have nothing to eat, she grabbed up her bag and katana. Without glancing at him, Yuya stalked from the camp and out onto the road next to the clearing as she made her way towards the next town, not caring what became of Kyo.
Kyo watched Yuya leave, not caring what became of the wench. Ignoring the pot, he gathered his own things, and set out on another road that forked from the one Yuya had taken. He knew where she was heading, and he would enjoy having her come running to him, assassin or not.
Yuya was on her way towards an encampment of her enemies, and he didn't really know if she'd survive the night. Grinning, he stopped just before walking onto it, to watch her tense form walk away.
"Dumb wench." He muttered, a grin on his face before he turned down the trail and walked away from her.
Immediately, after having realized this, Yuya began cursing all over again in her head, several curses escaping her lips as well.
"Arrogant…selfish…bastard…"Yuya muttered throwing a rock from the ground at a nearby tree.
Yuya's head snapped up when she heard a rustled come from the road infront of her. Slowing her breathing, and grabbing the hilt of her sword, she stood and crouched into a defensive position.
No other sound came, but Yuya could sense a presence. A human presence. Eyes narrowed, Yuya silently drew her katana, and listened again. Her pupils were dilating, trying to be able to see in the failing light.
With a sudden crash, five men jumped from the trees and bushes infront of her. In a heartbeat, Yuya was fighting off blows from all five, trying to take in how they moved. She cut one down, and then another, leaving her with three more. They all grinned at her wickedly as if knowing something she did not.
They all grabbed daggers, and Yuya muttered curses under her breath as each assailant threw two daggers at her. She managed to dodge four of them. One sliced past her shoulder, giving her a slight cut. The other buried itself in her right shoulder.
Crying out with sudden pain, Yuya grabbed and yanked the dagger from her shoulder, but too late. The three attackers had caught her off guard and all three were charging. A sudden flash of grey crossed her vision, and immediately the other three attackers were cut down. Yuya gripped her bleeding shoulder as she looked down at the dead men.
Her gaze drifted up to see Kyo cleaning his blade of blood. Fury flashed across her features and then pain washed over her and her legs felt weak.
Sighing with boredom, Kyo walked over to her, and caught her just before she fell. Picking her up bridal style, he walked back over to wear her bag was, and set her down on the rock, leaning her bag against the tree.
"What the hell are you doing here?" Yuya demanded in a slightly strained voice.
"Saving your ass." Kyo replied shortly.
"Thanks." She muttered before clenching her teeth in pain as Kyo pulled down the shoulder of her kimono and gently dabbed away the blood that was dripping from the wound.
"Kyo…"Yuya said after a few minutes of him gently cleaning her wound, and her blinking away tears of pain.
Kyo didn't respond, but kept cleaning the wound. Yuya, taking that as his answer sighed heavily then said, "I was wrong about what I said earlier." She muttered, her eyes gazed up at the setting sun.
"So was I." He muttered as he pulled out a roll of bandages.
Yuya was surprised by his statement and looked down at him. "When I said I was alone…" She began then stopped for a moment as winced as he tightened the bandage around her wound.
"You're not alone." Kyo said for her.
"You're grateful." Yuya said for him.
Yuya smiled slightly at him while Kyo's hands remained gently as he wrapped her shoulder, Yuya suddenly realizing that half of her chest was bare.
Turning a bright red, Yuya tensed, but noticed that Kyo wasn't making rude comments or acting like a hentai.
Finishing up, Kyo looked up at her bright red face, and allowed a cocky grin to light up his own face.
"Don't even start." Yuya warned as she quickly covered herself up.
Chuckling slightly, Kyo began putting the medical supplies away as Yuya continued to blush with embarrassment and anger.
"Thank you for coming after me." She said when he was done. Standing, Kyo took the box of supplies over to his things which had been left a few feet away from where Yuya's were.
When he didn't hear her again, he turned to look at her, only to have her right infront of him. Looking down slightly he grinned mischievously at her.
Without warning, Kyo bent his head down, and lightly kissed her on the lips, his arms snaking around her waist in the process. Yuya leaned into him, finding comfort in his warm arms.
Pulling back a few seconds later, Yuya looked up at Kyo.
"Does this mean that you're going to stop teasing me now?" her eyes shining brightly.
Instead of answering, Kyo pulled her against him, and kissed her more harshly this time, letting his actions speak louder than words and tell more than you'd know.
Only 6 more fics to finish…I'm not really looking forward to this….
