Disclaimer: I do not own YYH. I own the OC's but nothing else.
A very pissed off girl swept blue streaked black hair out of her light blue eyes. Dressed to go partying in a club she wore a crimson corset, black pants with red flames, a black choker with a sapphire heart, jade butterfly hair piece, and red flip flops. Next to her girl with brunette hair and green eyes crossed her arms. She was dressed to go clubbing also but in dark green pants, a black camisole silver hoop earrings, a silver horseshoe necklace and black flip flops.
"Koenma I can't keep doing this! I'm in college, can't you just tell whoever's king of the Makkai to fix it?" said the girl with blue eyes.
"Jesse," started Koenma looking preoccupied
"It's Heart," interrupted the girl glaring
"Heart, Cheyenne," started Koenma again.
"Autumn," Interrupted the girl with green eyes
"Sorry, Heart, Autumn, it's just for the summer," said Koenma looking uncomfortable.
"What's just for the summer," asked Autumn as the SD force entered.
"Ayame, will you tell you when you get there," said Koenma nodding his head to the SD force.
"Get ready you two," said the captain as the SD force began to open a portal.
"Uh, clothes?" said Autumn as she and Heart turned to face the opening portal.
"No time,' said Koenma as the portal fully opened.
"You so owe us," said Heart right before they jumped through.
Before either of them could scream Jin caught them. As they carefully landed Heart smirked thinking about the girls that had died from said fall many a times before them. It was something that Koenma had put as: something about a time space anomaly about all these blonde haired blue eyed Americans. "I gotta go," said Jin before he took off.
"Ok if we're not helping him what are we doing?" asked Autumn looking around at the forest.
"Well lets say it's not Earth shaking to us…Otherwise we would of heard about it," said Heart looking at her watch.
"But the fate of the worlds are in danger right?" asked Autumn looking towards Heart.
Heart didn't answer as two demons came into the clearing. One was definatly a fox demon while the other, shorter than his companion; though not by much, she wasn't sure. When they headed towards them Heart had a white ball in her hand. Autumn had two black katana's in her hands. Both where ready for anything, it was something that they had nearly learned the hard way
"Detective Martin," said the Fox demon
"Detective Nunez," said the other demon
"And you are?" asked Autumn
"Did Koenma explain everything?" asked Kurama looking over the two girls.
"Wish," muttered Heart closing her hand on the ball and making it disappear.
"He didn't have time to," said Autumn as her swords disappeared.
"There has been talk about rebellion from the upper tiers of demons. You two are renown for keeping the balance in check at the far regions," said Kurama.
"Who put the contract out?" asked Heart crossing her arms
"Koenma does know that we will be going back to the human world so we can make it back in time to go to college," said Autumn not looking happy
"That's only if we find out who," said Kurama
"If it's only a contract we can go back,' said Heart looking to Autumn.
"This isn't a game," growled Hiei
"Tell that to the first assassin, oh, wait, he's dead," said Heart glaring at Hiei
"Or the other eight either," murmured Autumn
"When?" asked Kurama
"Last six months," said Autumn as Heart turned her back on Hiei
"Then we need you two under protection," said Kurama frowning
"I'm calling Alex,' said Heart pulling out her gun metal grey Razr.
"Who?" asked Kurama looking confused.
"Alex it's me Heart…yeah both and I need it for Autumn to thanks," said Heart before she hung up.
"Incoming,' said Autumn right before four suitcases out of nowhere.
"Don't get us wrong…We're doing this to keep our families safe. Tell Koenma he has about two months," said Heart.
"They are here,"
"I know, they are falling into my hands,"
"What will you do once they are dead?"
"Just sit and watch,"
"Koenma, sir?" asked one of the ferry girls
"Ayame come in," said Koenma looking up from his papers.
"Sir has Yusuke and Reizan found who are after them?" asked Ayame walking in carrying her oar.
"Nothing concrete," said Koenma.
"Koenma, sir, someone has escaped Limbo,' said Botan running in looking stressed.
"Botan, get the SD force to 'the cave'!" shouted Koenma turning into his teenage form and running out.
Autumn was freaked out about the giant moving cockroach but she'd deal. Being a 'detective' with Heart for the past three years had given her a lot of shocks…Shocks…A year ago she would of bet money Heart would of just attacked Koenma with everything she had. Yet after the first attempt on their lives she had changed her tune.
Sighing Autumn made sure the door was locked and turned to the bed. There both suitcases where open full of clothes. She grabbed black jeans, a dark green v-neck short sleeved shirt, and black shoes. She slipped her earrings into the coin pocket and tucked her necklace into her shirt.
"Hang on,' said Autumn as there was a knock on the door. She walked to the door and opened it to show Mukuro standing there.
"Cheyenne, or should I say Autumn," said Mukuro.
"It's Autumn now. How can I accommodate you?" asked Autumn letting Mukuro in.
"How is Heart faring?" asked Mukuro stepping in.
"She's here for all that is. She didn't attack Koenma," said Autumn.
"Should I tell my Heir?" asked Mukuro looking Autumn in the eye.
"Don't tell anyone," said Amy dead serious.
Heart zipped her leather jacket up as she walked through the glass garden. The glass though usually very delicate gave her a sense of strength and peace. Finding a bench near a pond structure she sat down.
"It's beautiful isn't it?" asked a blonde haired blue eyed demon.
"Yes it is Doug. Did Alex tell you?" asked Heart moving to let him sit next to her.
"He said that the two of you where here,' said Doug sitting down.
"Is there any news?" asked Heart gazing at a yellow rose bush
"Nothing concrete. As always watch your step. He's going to want answers,' said Doug before he disappeared, leaving a single black feather where he was.
Heart tucked it into her pocket and headed inside. Just inside the doorway stood Yomi, looking as he always did. Heart nodded to him and walked on, the hair on the back of her neck standing on end.
"Everything alright Jesse?" asked Yomi
Faster than you could blink Heart had a knife to Yomi's ribs. Her pulse raced while her mind stayed crystal clear. "Watch it Yomi or I might just let it slip. Don't forget…" said Heart making the knife disappears and then she walked away calmly.
When she got back to her room a blue rose was laying on the bed. Smiling sadly she placed the rose and feather on the desk and took off her jacket. Opening one of her suitcases she pulled out a black cotton jersey shirt with the number seventeen in silver and black cargo shorts. Her butterfly clip went to clip the rose and feather together. Changing out her clothes she stuffed the4 chocker into a hidden pocket on the side seam of her jeans. She had barely pulled her hair into a neat bun when Kurama walked in carrying a file.
Autumn nearly had a heart attack when Hiei suddenly appeared next to her.
"I need to know of all the enemies, demons or humans you've amassed in the past three years," said Hiei frowning.
"There's the Ehrenreich clan, Angell clan and that one rich guy…what's his name…oh yeah, it was Jobe Ross," said Autumn
"Ehrenreich clan?" asked Hiei probably trying to figure out who they where.
"A Mole demon, the third in line to the thrown, was kidnapping human babies. He's dead if I remember right," said Autumn staring at the sky.
"Angell clan? Last reports were they where all killed," said Hiei checking the file in his hand.
"There's probably five left. Almost all of them died from a portal back lash," said Autumn.
"Jobe Ross?" asked Hiei looking to Autumn.
"Think Black Black Club activities during Sensui times five fold. Heart could tell you more than I can," said Autumn not meeting Hiei's eyes.
"Uncle?" asked a blue haired child.
"Kagome, what's the matter?" asked Hiei when he saw she was close to tears.
"Someone sliced Kit Kat,' said Kagome holding up a very worn cat plushy.
Hiei said nothing but picked her up and left. Autumn sighed and looked down, feeling a chill go down her spine. She scoffed at her own fear and headed inside. Right at the door she felt like she was being watched but when she turned around she couldn't see nor sense anything. Marking it mentally she went inside.
"Do you have any enemies from the first three years of being a detective?" asked Kurama sitting on Heart's bed.
"…Cometti, Edge, and Job Ross, those that are alive. Dead, many," said Heart sitting on the desk letting her legs swing.
"Job Ross?" asked Kurama.
"Human, age 35, Caucasian, platinum hair, blue eyes, a business man of sorts, really dangerous and the wrong guy to piss off. He's hated me before I became a detective," said Heart detachly.
"He's bad news in any world," said Ayame appearing near the door.
"Why isn't he taken care of?" asked Kurama frowning.
"Not time," said Ayame cryptically.
"He's human, we can't touch him. It'd be to much of a shake up. Total chaos times ten," said Heart staring at her hands.
"So he's at the top of the list?" asked Kurama frowning.
"Impossible," said Heart not swinging her legs anymore.
"Heart saved his life a year ago," said Ayame frowning.
"Since then 'his' assassins haven't tried. With him he wants you to know he's after you. He's also a man with honor,' said Heart shooting a look at Ayame.
"Honor?" questions Kurama.
"If his problem is with you he only goes for you. He doesn't go after your friends and family," said Heart before she left the room.
"What happened?" asked Kurama mystified.
"It's up to her, I have to go," said Ayame before she left also.
"Do you think she suspects?"
"I doubt it. If she does she's denying it."
"Ah but she could think it's you."
"I doubt it. I'm dead to her."
Autumn made her way through the hallways looking for Mukuro. She had plenty of questions to ask her about this 'Guardian'. Two wrong turns and an interesting conversation with a shadow she found her in the medical wing.
"Is there something wrong?" asked Mukuro.
"No I just want a little bit of info," said Autumn smiling sweetly.
"Can't it wait," snapped a cross looking nurse.
"Sachie that's all. Lets head to my chambers,' said Mukuro leading the way out.
The way there was made in silence. Autumn had more than a couple questions. She just didn't want anyone to over hear. It had always irked her when someone would ask private questions in public. Working with Heart it had become known that the girl wouldn't speak at all unless she had to around strangers. She would automatically shut herself off if asked a personal question out in the open. Finally they entered Mukuro's private living room.
"What was the question?" asked Mukuro as she locked the door.
"It's about Hiei. I know all the general stuff but this is more personal, I think," said Autumn sitting down on the black leather love seat.
"What is it?" asked Mukuro sitting down on the black leather couch.
"It's about Kagome," said Autumn quietly.
"Kagome…To understand you have to start at the beginning…
Hiei had a twin sister named Yukina. A long time ago she fell in love and married a human Kazuma Kuwabara," said Mukuro her face passive
"Kazuma Kuwabara… One of the four, correct?" asked Autumn looking intrigued. Not much was said about the four 'detectives'. What she knew was very limited and did not extended after Sensui. It was actually very vague at the end of the battle with Sensui. It just said that Yusuke Urameshi died came back to life and killed Sensui end of story.
"Correct. The two had a baby boy named Yoshinbu. When the boy was thirteen Kuwabara was killed in front of him. Yukina, heart broken, moved with Shin, to live with Hiei. About four years ago Yukina became pregnant after a very long and hard labor Kagome was born. Unfortunately it had been to much and Yukina died. Shin was so distraught, mad and confused, Hiei sent him to help Yusuke. He hasn't come back. Hiei has raised Kagome single handedly. He's extremely protective of her," said Mukuro shaking her head slightly.
"It shows," murmured Autumn
"Can I ask you a personal question?" asked Mukuro.
"Shoot," said Autumn leaning back.
"How is your relationship with Brian going?" asked Mukuro.
"We broke up, about two years ago, right during the climax of the Angell mess. He told me I had to Choose him or my job," said Autumn shaking her head.
"The idiot told you that!" exclaimed Mukuro.
"Little did he know he was asking either him or the world. I old him it's over and left," said Autumn
"It happens," said Mukuro as she waved her hand and the door was unlocked.
"Yeah and I haven't found anyone else," said Autumn.
"Koi?" asked a man with short black hair walking in.
"Kashi, koi, what is it?" asked Mukuro before she kissed him.
"I was wondering why the door was locked," said the man.
"Kakashi this is Autumn. Autumn this is Kakashi. She was just wondering about my heir,' said Mukuro as he sat down.
"Botan is there any update?" asked Koenma looking slightly worried.
"Nothing sir. Lord Koenma could it be possible that this might deal with that?" asked Botan making her oar appear in her hand.
"Don't think I haven't thought of that but they are all in the Spirit World jail," said Koenma looking worried.
"Lord Koenma, why don't you just tell them the truth? Would it really hurt them that bad?" asked Botan as she mounted her oar.
"It's not just that. They are going to start waves soon. If the two hadn't taken them; with the seals becoming void at the age of 22, they would be dead the second they dropped," said Koenma before Botan left.
"Lord Koenma, sir, your father wants to see you,' said George running in.
Heart wiped away her tears wishing it had happened differently. Still staring at the night sky gave her some peace.
…I should have seen what was right in front of me. Do you know how may times I've gone back and forth? Do you know how many people who got hurt or killed because of it?
Autumn sighed as she unpacked everything. Shortly after her talked with Mukuro she saw Kagome again. What had shocked her was that she had a red with black swirls tear gem hanging around her neck. Still she couldn't investigate she had to worry about her past and present right now.
