Hello, this is my first Tenchu fic with Ayame as the lead star. I hope all you Tenchu fans enjoy it. Be sure to R&R.
Ayame sat up in the tree stretching her arms and legs just waking up from another hard day. When she jumped down from the tree, she went over to Lord Godha's to see Kiku. Kiku was inside playing with her dolls as usual. The moment Ayame stepped in, Kiku ran up to Ayame and gave her a nice, warm hug.
"Ayame, I missed you! I haven't seen you for days," said Kiku.
Ayame smiled and ran her fingers through Kiku's soft, smooth hair.
"I'm sorry I couldn't stop by sooner little one, but I had some business to take care of," said Ayame.
Kiku then frowned from Ayame's reply.
"Your always busy!" Whenever I want to be around you, I cant!"
"I'm really sorry Kiku," said Ayame.
"It's ok, I understand that you don't always have time to hang out with me."
Ayame felt bad for Kiku and felt that she needed to do something for her to make her feel better.
"Well, what would you like to do today?"
Kiku's face then lit up with excitement.
"You mean you don't have any work to do today?"
"That's right," Ayame said.
"Alright, hold on. Let me put some clothes on!" Kiku shouted.
Ayame sat patiently by Kiku's room waiting for her to come out.
When Kiku stepped out from her room, she grabbed Ayame by the hand and began skipping her way out the front door. Kiku then took Ayame to a quiet spot in the forest where they could talk and relax. Kiku sat down and crossed her legs Indian style; Ayame did the same.
"Let me show you what I found!" said Kiku.
"What is it?" asked Ayame.
Kiku reached into her collar and pulled out a necklace with a small diamond hanging off in the middle.
"Isn't it pretty?" said Kiku.
Ayame nodded her head.
"Where did you find it?"
"I found it lying on the ground outside of my home a few days ago," replied Kiku. "Ever since I've had it, I've been feeling like my luck has been changing."
"Sort of like a good luck charm?" Ayame interrupted.
"Yes, nothing bad ever seems to happen at all. Only good things happen."
"That's good to hear," Ayame said grinning.
"Yeah, but sometimes I have nightmares. When I go to bed, I have lots and lots of nightmares. But those aren't really bad though, since they are only just dreams and are not apart of reality."
"What kind of nightmares?" Ayame asked.
"Suddenly, Lord Gohda calls Ayame's name.
"Damn! Looks like I'm needed again. I'll see you later Kiku!"
Kiku began to frown.
"You have to go again?"
"Yes, I'm sorry. I'll make it up to you, I promise!" Ayame said dashing out of the forest.
Kiku sat in the forest alone by herself. Soon, she began to tire of sitting around doing nothing.
"I'm going home!" she declared.
Later that night, Kiku went to bed saddened by the fact Ayame couldn't hang out with her. When she pulled the covers over her body and fell asleep, she began to jump and jerk uncontrollably in her bed. All of a sudden, a red-eyed demon appeared beside her bed. The demon growled continuously as it stared down at Kiku's sleeping body. Kiku then woke up and saw the red-eyed monster staring back at her. She quickly jumped up from her bed and began screaming as loud as she could.
That's it for chapter one.
