A shadow moved silently through the darkness, far too quickly for most beings to see. Even so lesser demons wisely vacated the area when they felt the angry aura of the one traveling through the Makai, to remain was to court certain death. The power radiating off of him was immense yet he didn't fear detection, in fact what he was feeling was nowhere near that particular emotion. He was spoiling for a fight as it was, he was not supposed to be catering to the whims of the Reikai at the moment but Koenma had insisted. Never mind the fact that the Brat had agreed that it would be in everyone's best interest if he wasn't involved in missions until his breeding cycle had passed. But yet the first mission that came up where it was imperative that it be taken care of immediately Koenma had called upon him and not the others. "They're already on an important case Hiei and you're the only one who can go," he had said much to the apparition's displeasure.
Hiei smirked as he remembered how the Reikai Prince had cringed behind his desk, waiting for the certain death that was dancing in his crimson eyes. If nothing else Koenma knew exactly how dangerous of an ally he was and he wouldn't forget it anytime soon. He planned to have a little talk with the Demigod when all of this was said and done whether the man wanted to or not. This was not the best of times for him to be rescuing some damsel in distress that had managed to find herself in the Makai and allowed herself to be kidnapped and Koenma had to know just how dangerous it was to be utilizing his services. 'Why is this this one human girl was so important that Koenma would risk sending me to go after her?' The balance he maintained between his conflicting elements was extremely unstable at the moment as instinct demanded that he find a suitable female to rut with. Although he didn't know this woman's particular history he still couldn't help but scowl at the thought that she would be of any interest to him anyway. It was unlikely that his instincts would respond to a human no matter how she looked or how powerful she turned out to be but the possibility was always there. Of course, his version of powerful and Koenma's were two different things but the demigod had mentioned a deadly artifact that was in her possession. 'Assuming they hadn't taken it from her already. If they have it might be one hell of a fight to retrieve it since Koenma insists that it be brought back with her. Stupid humans always finding trouble, just why the hell did it have to be me again?' He tamped down on the aggression he felt surge forth at being treated like a well trained dog yet again. Besides, it was pointless to even consider the possibility that he'd be attracted to her. Few humans were powerful enough to attract his attention and to date none of them at all had been female. It was highly unlikely that one girl with an artifact would change that now.
He could sense that he was getting close to the establishment since it was a place he had been to on occasion although he had never seen humans there before. As the entrance to the estate came into sight he cursed under his breath when he saw the sheer number of demons lingering outside. 'Leave it to a female to have the audacity to be captured on a night like this when it happens to be extremely busy.' An outright assault would never do, he knew there were few who could stand against him but in numbers such as he was about to encounter it would be suicide for him to attempt it. At least not without help, and the others were so conveniently away. Besides, to act so rashly could cost him in the future which meant he had to play this off like it was one of his normal visits. Dark thoughts on how to kill Koenma crossed his mind yet again as he approached the entrance. 'The Brat will pay for this. Maybe he'd like an up close and personal view of what his internal organs look like.' No sign of his murderous thoughts crossed his face as he nodded to the demon stationed at the doorway. The man was in place to screen the customers who came for the services provided within. While prostitution was perfectly legal in the Makai this particular establishment was extremely selective about their clientèle. As expected he was able to pass by unhindered and promptly made his way through the main room to talk to the owner.
To Hiei's slight surprise he found the man easily enough, as well as his target. She was currently on display for the customers and it appeared that the bidding would soon commence for the opportunity to spend the night in her company. For a moment he allowed his eyes to trail over her slender body, his gaze taking in the large amounts of skin that was clearly visible to any who chose to look upon her. Clearly, she was a young woman who took care of her body which surprised him a bit. From his experiences in the Ningenkai he'd found that so many of the human females were soft bodied unlike the well toned beauty that was standing in front of him. Eager to get this part over with, Hiei schooled his features into one of desire which he found was not that difficult to accomplish and he continued to drag his gaze slowly up her body and finally on to her face where he met her defiant blue eyes. Amusement flowed through him seeing the rage they contained, it was obvious that she was not going to resign herself to whatever Fate had intended for her by bringing her here. Light bruises graced her arms although there were none any place else. They'd been careful to ensure that her beauty hadn't been marred in the struggle although some damage had been unavoidable. Her lip was split and still bleeding slightly which told him she hadn't been there for very long. Yet even now when it would seem that all hope was lost for her the fire of rage along with something else he had yet to identify smoldered in her eyes.
"She is beautiful isn't she?"
Hiei turned to the owner of the brothel who had stepped up beside him and smirked, "She is. Since when have you taken to keeping humans? It looks like she's been more trouble than she's worth." His grin only widened as the girl glared at him furiously. Apparently what he had said had struck a nerve with her and he chose to file that little tidbit of information away for future reference since there was no telling just how long they were going to be together until he could get her back where she belonged. Something about the glare she was giving him intrigued Hiei, she was fiery and he liked that far better than the meek manner in which most humans acted. As far as his own kind went there were still too many of the demonesses that he had bedded in the past, that while skilled lacked the fire that made his blood boil. For reasons unknown to him, Hiei could feel his body beginning to respond to her already and for that he wanted to curse. 'So she's pretty and has an attitude, if that's all it took to me get aroused then I would have made an attempt at bedding Shizuru or Keiko by now.' Of course, that in itself would have never have happened anyway due to the friendships he'd formed with Kurama and Yusuke but still, the comparison was the same. At this rate it would be best to get this over with soon before he could do something that surely the both of them would regret.
"She arrived just today. I must say she truly is a prize to have, although you are right. We went through quite a bit of trouble just to get her here, that golden collar isn't just for show," The owner said while giving the apparition a covert glance. He wasn't a fool, he couldn't be in order to have become as prosperous as he had. He knew exactly who Hiei was and who he worked for yet he remained unconcerned by the demon's presence. The Apparition's dislike of humans was well known and even now he could smell the scent of Hiei's rutting cycle raging through him. Although the timing of his arrival was odd it was by no means unusual to see him there, especially given his body's condition. He wouldn't complain though, Hiei was a preferred customer and always paid well for the services they offered. It was for patrons like him that they brought in the best available, even going so far as to linger around the border to snatch humans that ventured too close. At this distance he knew that Hiei would be able to sense the girl's power as well, even with it being restrained as it was. All in all she was a tempting morsel, one that would be well suited to pleasing the hybrid if he chose her as his bed partner for the night. As it were he'd been planning an auction but if he had a willing customer here and now that was guaranteed not to cause trouble he'd take it. "Are you interested in her? I was planning on sending her to the highest bidder but I am always willing to make a deal."
For a moment Hiei was silent, as if considering the question before he gave an answer, "Perhaps." Arrogantly took a step towards her and took note how she didn't shrink back from him, nor did the fire in her eyes die out. Instead she held his gaze in challenge, as if she were daring him to touch her. Not one to back down himself, Hiei reached out and fingered the fine golden chain that dangled from the collar around her slender neck. He could feel the hum of the magic as it strained against the rage of her holy powers that were fighting to break free. Ignoring the danger that the power posed should it break free, he pulled her towards him and ran a clawed finger across her lower lip, smearing it with her blood. His skin tingled where it made contact and he brought the finger to his own lips, his tongue lapping the crimson liquid off of it. He closed his eyes while savoring the taste, the girl was powerful just as Koenma had said. Too powerful in fact, the only other human he had met with the same level of energy was Genkai. Yusuke no longer counted among the humans and his power was of a different kind anyway.
Kagome had stood there on that wretched platform for what seemed like hours, watching with barely hidden disgust as the demons had begun filtering in and undressing her with their eyes. She knew it was only a matter of time before someone approached her with more than an intent to just look, she was under no illusions as to what this place was. There were plenty of other women in the room with her however they all moved about freely, offering their bodies to the many men that walked in and even some of the women. Somehow though she knew her time had come when her eyes landed on one figure that stood out amongst the rest. Kagome's eyes widened as she watched him carefully, many had looked at her since she had come here but none had been allowed to approach much less touch her. Even with her powers warded she knew how strong he was, it radiated off of him in waves along with something else she could not identify. The way he carried himself spoke of arrogance and danger, he would be a tough opponent for her under the best of circumstances and yet she wasn't frightened of him. 'What is it about him? Think Kagome, isn't there something that I can use to maybe get free?'
Yet as they continued to stand face to face his crimson eyes seemed to bore into her soul and it stirred longings that she had rarely felt before. A spicy scent reached her nose and she couldn't stop herself from inhaling deeply. It was calming her despite her misgivings and that more than anything else made her want to run even though she could not move. It was as if she were entranced by his gaze and the way that he smelled. 'What is he doing to me?' The way he had touched her was almost gentle and she found herself wanting to press closer to him, to wrap herself in that intriguing scent that cloaked him. Despite the seriousness of the situation she'd found herself in she felt her body beginning to respond which only confused her further as his hand came out to her again and gently ran down her cheek to her neck. As he stopped and kept from going any further with his hands, Kagome wasn't certain whether or not she should be relieved or disappointed. Even though he'd stopped his eyes continued to burn an invisible path down her body before he stepped back away from her.
When he abruptly turned away from her Kagome's breath caught in her chest. 'Is that it? He's leaving?' The others seemed to have deemed it acceptable to approach her now much to her dismay but there wasn't anything she could do to stop them. Inside she wanted to shrink back from the demons pressing around her but to do so would do nothing but incite them into further advances. She glared at them, willing them to back off however it was not necessary. A low growl filled the air causing the other demons to pause in their advances, some throwing cautious glances at the demon who'd just moved away from her.
It hadn't taken him long but Hiei had decided that he wanted this particular girl even if it hadn't been for the mission he'd been sent on. The smell of her arousal when he had touched her had reached him easily enough and his blood had begun to heat with each passing moment. 'Fuck the mission for now, she wants it and I need it. If I'm going to be forced into pulling her out of this place then I might as well take my own reward as well.' Possessiveness gripped him when the others began to approach her and he let them know in no uncertain terms that she was to be his for the night, no other would be permitted to touch her until he was finished and by then they'd be on their way back to the Ningenkai. Afterwards they could go their separate ways and most likely never see each other again which suited him just fine. There were no thoughts in his mind of taking her as a mate, she would be nothing more than a means of release. It had been much too long since he had bedded a female and he was more than ready to make up for that lack of action.
Satisfied that he had staked his claim, Hiei turned back to the owner to begin the negotiations, "I want her. Shall we discuss a price?"
"Of course, we'll continue this talk in my office," The owner stated with a smile while waving to one of the guards posted at the door. The miko needed to be cleaned up before she could be expected to perform to the apparition's satisfaction.
Hiei watched as the girl was led away, it was likely she was being prepared for their encounter. It wouldn't have mattered to him if she'd been placed in his room just as she was now, he'd be more than content with her either way but that was how business was done here. Now more than ever the thought of her spread out on the silk sheets of the room he had reserved for visits such as this made him ache, a delicious burn began to spread through his body in anticipation of what was to come. Silently he followed the demon into his office and took a seat in one of the plush chairs. Normally there was one set price for a girl for the night but this was a special case and he'd be expected to pay more. Hiei knew it wouldn't be cheap but then so had Koenma. He'd insisted that Koenma gave him enough to make sure that he had more than enough to finalize any deals because he refused to part with his own money.
"Let's get down to business shall we?" The demon leveled an appraising stare at Hiei, wondering just what he could get out of him for the girl. More than anything he wanted the Apparition's assurances that he would not bring the Reikai into their affairs. Thus far they had managed to keep their shady dealings well hidden from Koenma and his father but now that Hiei had become aware of then taking humans from the Ningenkai precautions needed to be taken.
"Indeed. How much for her for the night?" Hiei knew better than to ask what it would cost him to outright purchase her. That would come later, after he had sampled what she had to offer which he had every intention of doing just as soon as he left this room. It was just the way things were done around here, few females were special enough to catch attention like that and while the miko came close it would arouse suspicions. He knew he had asked the right question when the owner relaxed ever so slightly.
"You know she is special and we went through a lot of trouble to obtain her. Many of my men died before we were able to subdue her. I would be willing to make a deal with you provided you give your word that Koenma will not learn of the dealings done this day," The owner stated matter of factly. He was fairly certain he would get this much at least, it was common knowledge that there was no love lost between Koenma and the demon sitting in front of him. Hiei only followed the Spirit World's orders due to the probation he had been placed on. Even though he had been allowed to return to the Makai, Koenma was loath to give up on his little team completely. Of course there was every possibility the girl would not be there long anyway even if the Reikai was to learn about her, surely someone with deep pockets would take an interest in her before too long. 'Once she's off the premises it's no longer my problem.'
Hiei smirked at hearing the way the man had begun their negotiations. 'This is almost too easy.' He had picked up the stray thoughts coming from the demon and now that he knew exactly what the man was expecting he would continue to play. In the end he would win the game gaining what he wanted and her freedom in the process. Koenma was likely to be pissed but at the moment he didn't give a fuck what the brat thought. Shrugging his shoulders lazily, Hiei gave the man a curious look, "Why would I tell the Prince anything? My own private affairs are none of that fool's concern."
"Then provided you've enough gold then we have a deal," The demon agreed amiably while he watched Hiei reached into the folds of his cloak, pulling forth two bags. Without hesitation the hybrid tossed them onto the desk that separated them and carefully he reached forward to untie the knots which would allow him to look inside. A satisfied smile crossed his face when he calculated exactly how much he had just been given. It was more than enough to pay for the night with the girl, in fact it was over double the usual rate that was usually paid for one of the normal girls. It would seem that the Apparition had taken a fancy to the girl and wished to ensure that he got her. Quickly he closed the bags and placed them in a drawer before standing, "Very well, I'll have her sent to your normal room momentarily. It's been a pleasure doing business with you as usual."
Hiei merely nodded and stood, more than ready to be done with this nonsense. Closing the door quietly behind him, he made his way through the main room and took note of the envious glares he was receiving from a few of the other customers. It would seem that news had spread of his interest in the human girl that had been brought in and a few of them were put out that he'd put in an appearance, robbing them of the chance to purchase her. He merely scowled at them, his hand moving in a not so subtle threat towards the hilt of his katana. 'They are fools if they think they can challenge me.' Wisely the demons around him cleared a path not wanting to irritate him any further. It wasn't long before he was up the stairwell and before the door to the room normally reserved for him when he chose to put in an appearance. He paid well to ensure that he wouldn't be occupying a room that had entertained some sweaty pig only hours before and to him it was well worth it. As expected the room was just as he had left it the last time, the only scents he could detect were the normal scents of the demons appointed to maintain it.
Now all he could do was wait for the girl to be brought to him. Under normal circumstances it wouldn't take them very long so she would be arriving any time, provided she hadn't given them too much trouble in preparing. However if her eyes had been any indication he knew that she wouldn't meekly submit to what they had done to her. 'It would surprise me if she did, that one is not used to being told what to do.' He had already removed his cloak and boots by the time she was finally brought in. As expected, she was struggling against the two demons that held her captive but there was no chance that she could hope to break free. Yet all struggles ceased as soon as she crossed the threshold and met his gaze uncertainly. Unceremoniously the two demons that had been holding her shoved her completely into the room before closing the door behind them. She would have fallen to the ground had she not managed to catch herself at the last moment.
Hiei's gaze turned predatory as he looked the miko over, the Mistress had certainly outdone herself this time. The woman standing before him wore the thinnest of silk garments that barely preserved her modesty. It was enough to give a tantalizing glance at what she had to offer, sure to set any demon's blood on fire. A single piece of jewelry adorned her body, a spherical pink jewel that he had never seen the likes of before. It was well shielded but with the Jagan he could sense the power that was masked within it. 'That must be the artifact Koenma was so worried about. She is lucky her shielding held or she would no longer have it in her possession.' Most likely she hadn't been relieved of the bauble because the color matched the silk she was wearing.
Kagome held her ground though she was wary as he slowly approached her. So far the demon hadn't made an aggressive move towards her but she was not stupid enough to believe he was incapable of such an act. While they were dressing her in this thing they'd called a dress they had been sure to inform her that he had purchased her for the night and that she had better please him well if she wanted to live. Apparently they did not take kindly to their girls not doing their jobs correctly, even if they were unwilling participants at best. Her mind raced, trying to come up with a means to escape before she lost her virginity to this demon. All she wanted was to go home, she hadn't asked to fall into the portal that brought her to this god forsaken place. Her mind drew a blank however as he finally reached her, putting an end to any such thoughts. Once more her breath caught as her eyes found his crimson ones and he held her in place with the strength of his gaze alone. 'That smell again..' She couldn't help but inhale deeply, the scent he gave off was near addicting. There was no way she could have known that it was a pheromone, unique to his kind and present only when they were seeking a suitable breeding partner. She continued to remain motionless as he closed the distance between them and his lips found hers. His tongue traced the cut on her lip before he drew it into his mouth, sucking at it slightly to prompt the blood to flow once more.
Hiei wasn't about to let her know that he was there to save her, to do so would be counterproductive to what his body was screaming at him to do at the moment. Why give her thoughts of hope and freedom when he could instead be reinforcing the fact that she now belonged to him, if only for a few hours? Her blood was exquisite, the power it contained only sweetened the flavor and he found himself craving even more.
Kagome felt like melting against him as he continued to kiss her, his tongue forcing its way deeper into her mouth and dominating it. She wasn't supposed to be reacting like this! 'What's wrong with me? Why am I acting like this?' The stinging sensation of his teeth scraping across her lip was enough to bring her back to herself, if only for a moment. Abruptly she pulled her mouth away from his ignoring the growl of displeasure he gave her. If nothing else she needed to put some distance between them so she could think, and to that end she rested her hands against his bare chest and tried to push herself away from him. It was hard not to notice how his irises had darkened in color once she'd actually managed to take a couple steps away from him. Before she could process that bit of information though he suddenly disappeared from her sight. Strong arms wrapped around her from behind, causing her to stiffen but she wasn't given a chance to react any further. Abruptly she was pulled against his hard chest and she could feel the softness of his lips against her skin as he began to nuzzle the side of her neck.
He smirked as he heard her barely suppressed moan when his tongue began to lavish attention to her bare skin. The smell of her arousal hit him hard and he knew that it was only a matter of time before she gave up any form of resistance. If he didn't know better he would have thought her a demon bitch who was reacting to the scent he was giving off, inciting her desire. But she was human, there was no reason to believe that his cycle would have such an affect on her. Perhaps she was just ready to feel the pleasures that a man could offer to her, even now he could smell the innocence that she still possessed. She would be one of his finest conquests and he would make sure that she would remember his touch for some time to come.
Kagome mind fogged over and she was losing what little resolve that she had left. 'Why was I fighting this? Oh please don't stop.' The touch only grew bolder with each following caress, it was like he knew just how she wanted to be touched. Already it felt like her body was on fire and this demon was consuming every inch of her. Her breath was coming in quick pants as his hand hit the edge of her panties. "Please!"
Was she pleading for him to continue or to to stop? The smell that reached his nose told him she wanted him to venture even further no matter what her mind might be telling her. "Please what? Do you want me to stop or was the a plea for more?" His voice was husky as he asked the question but he smirked hearing the soft whimper that escaped her. "Don't worry, I have no intentions of stopping. Why should I when you want this as much as I do?" His lips caressed her ear before nibbling on it gently, "You want me to be your first, you cannot deny it," Hiei said huskily as if daring her to attempt just that. The gentle touch had her melting against him, molding her body to his own and pressing her soft backside against his groin, making him groan, "Give in to me, I'll make sure you enjoy yourself as well."
The seductiveness of his voice combined with his scent was drugging, beckoning her to give in and accept everything that he was offering. She no longer remembered the moment that her eyes drifted closed, instead she concentrated on the smooth motion of his fingertips against her heated flesh. The foreign feeling of his hands upon her body had her swallowing hard and attempting to move away. His arms moved just enough to allow her to turn to face him. The look in his eyes had her backing up a couple of steps before her legs hit the edge of the bed and upset her balance.
Hiei's instincts nearly took over when she be began moving away from him. While the fire she'd exhibited earlier was a definite turn on right now all he wanted was to sate the desire she'd invoked in him. There was no way that he would be denied in this, not when he knew that she wanted him just as badly. 'Perhaps she is just uncertain. I can change that easily enough.' Seeing the confused look in her eyes was enough to help restrain his baser instincts that demanded he take her right then and there. Quickly he grabbed her by the wrists and push her backwards onto the bed, making sure not to startle her too badly in the process. No resistance was given as he pinned her arms up over her head with one hand while he slid the other towards his ultimate goal.
He felt the wards on his arm burning away but he was too far gone to be able to resist as the dragon pulled away from his arm. the dragon having wrapped around her body causing a pleasurable burning sensation everywhere it touched. The dragon continued to wind it's way around her body, pleased with the toy it's Master had found.
Much later that night he finally laid beside her while attempting to catch his breath. He was surprised that she had called out his name since he had not told her what it was however it was entirely possible she managed to pull it from the Jagan. Her thoughts were completely open to him at the moment even as he replaced his own mental barriers. He was the master of the Jagan but that did not mean that he would leave it to course through her mind freely.
With her mind beginning to clear some Kagome began to wonder if she would ever see this particular demon again after he left and what was to become of her in this place. She trembled at the thought of being left to the unknown, her worries beginning to overtake the feelings she had only moments ago. Wordlessly he wrapped his arms around her and pulled her in closer to his chest silently offering her the comfort of his arms. She relaxed against him knowing that at least while he was there, no harm would come to her. She closed her eyes as he ran his fingers through her hair and another voice, deeper than the last caressed her mind, soothing her. 'Sleep, know that I will not leave you here.'
Hiei watched as her breathing evened out as she remained cuddled to his chest. It was true, he would not have left her here regardless. She did not belong in the Makai and regardless of her power she would not last long as someone's play thing. He looked to the Dragon which had again brushed up against her as if to add it's own reassurances before it returned to its proper place on his arm. 'At least the fool thing didn't eat her, that would have caused no end of problems.' When he looked at her though his eyes widened to near impossible proportions. There on her body where the dragon had last rested upon her was a perfect replica of the beast that rode his arm. The mark wound it's way up one of her thighs with it's head resting upon her hip, making a stark contrast against her pale skin. Uneasily he brushed his fingers against it, sensing the Youki it contained. The dragon had branded her as one of it's own, a being that was deserving of its protection. Since he was the only Master the dragon had, she automatically fell under his protection as well. 'Son of a bitch! What the hell is this going to mean for us?'
Confusion and anger were the prominent emotions as he stared at the brand. He knew that it was not a mating mark, the dragon could not bestow that upon her but it clearly marked the girl as 'his'. Anyone foolish enough to challenge the dragon over it's claim would meet a horrible demise, of this much he was certain. Hiei sighed heavily, uncertainty weighing down upon him. Right now there was no way of knowing what changes this would have on his life. He couldn't say he was thrilled with the idea but if the girl was powerful enough to gain such a protector then perhaps she was truly worthy of his attention. 'Still, she is human. What the hell was the dragon thinking by choosing her of all people?' More than anything it pissed him off that this was something that he had absolutely no control over.Knowing there was nothing that he could do about it right now he allowed his eyes to close briefly in an attempt to gain some much needed rest. But just as he did the door flew open without warning, causing him to curse and grab for the katana he wasn't wearing. Seeing just who his visitors were had him longing to run them through with his sword, as soon as he could get his hands on it. 'Great. Now they show up when it's too late, the fools!'
At least one of them had the decency to turn around, Kuwabara was already facing the wall and blushing profusely whereas Yusuke was staring at the two of them laying on the bed. "What the fuck is this Hiei? You're supposed to be here rescuing the girl not forcing her into your bed!" Yusuke snapped, this was what he was hoping that he wouldn't walk in on. Koenma had immediately sent them to this place to help Hiei out as soon as their other mission ended. For whatever reason he didn't trust Hiei to be able to do his job considering the circumstances and now from what Yusuke could tell the toddler had been right to worry.
Hiei's arm's tightened imperceptibly around her as he glared at the detective, "You will shut up now. Wake her and I promise you a gruesome death." The last thing he wanted to do was try and explain that he'd been sent to rescue her, not take her to bed. Yusuke's comment was upsetting, especially since it held a bit of truth in it. She had been somewhat unwilling at first but she had quickly changed her mind. What he wouldn't tolerate the Detective's attitude however, especially after what had occurred between the dragon and the woman laying in his arms. Moving carefully so as not to wake her, he pulled the blanket up over the both of them to shield their naked bodies from view. Now that she fell under his protection he would be damned if he allowed them to look at her in this condition, no matter how unusual the circumstances behind that protection were.
Kurama however had managed to get a good look at the brand on the girl before Hiei had managed to cover her up. He was beyond curious as to how that had managed to happen, he recognized the ki signature and knew that it had not been Hiei's choice but the dragon's. "You know Koenma is going to object to what has occurred Hiei. He is likely to separate the two of you permanently, if not worse. I don't know what happened here but if you are considering any sort of relationship with her you might want to reconsider. There is no possible way he will allow such a union to take place."
Hiei growled at the Kitsune's words, he didn't want the redhead's advice at this particular moment. What he wanted was the three of them to get the hell out so he could at least get dressed. He didn't give a fuck what the Reikai Brat deemed acceptable or not. Assuming he ever wanted to take the step in choosing a mate the Spirit World had no say in who he could or could not choose. If he decided after much deliberation that this girl happened to be her then so be it. Koenma would die before he allowed anyone he cared for to be taken from him. "He's welcome to try but I promise the Reikai will fall before I allow him to take someone I want. Now get out, we will be ready in a moment."
The glare never left his face as he watched the filed through the door to wait in the hallway. Only once the door was closed he looked down at the sleeping girl and began to lower the blanket so he could trace the brand that had essentially given her to him. He didn't know what was to come but he'd be damned if he'd allow someone else to dictate his life, the dragon had already done more than enough of that to last him a life time. Knowing that the others weren't likely to wait for very long he stood quickly and redressed himself, sparing a moment to secure his katana at his side. There was still the problem that there was no spare clothing that he could dress the miko in and he didn't want to wake her yet anyway. She would need her rest if they were to have a repeat of earlier and he refused to give her up anytime soon. Carefully he wrapped the blanket around her body making sure she was well covered and proceeded to pick her up, gently holding her to his chest. Exhibiting tenderness wasn't something that he was accustomed to doing but in this case it was necessary. With only the slightest look of irritation he pushed the door open and stepped out into the hallway, ignoring the stares of his teammates. What happened to the girl was was no longer their concern, he'd come to claim her as he'd been ordered. Now it was up to him to decide what the next move would be. Not giving them a chance to question his actions, Hiei left the others to trail behind him, ignoring the questions they called out to him. Sooner or later he knew that he would he would face the Lord of the Spirit Realm but that time wasn't now. In the end he would he would face whatever came at him head on and with honor. He had yet to back down from a fight and he wasn't about to start now.
