Hikaru Gosunkugi sat alone in the middle of his room. The only light in the room comes from a small circle of candles that he sat in the center of. Around the young boy where a few items that he appears to be using in another one of his "spells". The items are all fairly common for a person with his hobby. There is a crystal ball, some assorted herbs and plants ground into powder, a small bowl filled with a little water, a small dagger, and an old leather bound tome from which he reads.
After a few minutes he nods and starts his ritual. He begins by cleaning his dagger with the water, then cuts his finger with it and allows the blood to drip into his bowl. He winces as he does this and fights back a tear. 'This had better work', he tells himself as he sticks the finger in his mouth and sucks some of the blood.
After a moment, he continues. He picks up the various powdered substances and adds them to the water, mixing them with the knife. He can almost swear that he sees the bowl glow but dismisses it as a trick of the candle light. Gosunkugi then pours the mixture in the bowl on to the crystal ball and reads from the tome once more, this time out loud.
What he reads sounds much like gibberish in some long lost tongue. "Ta la Guu ma cha Guu ma la…" and so on, he chants for several minutes. As he does so, the crystal ball glows first very dim but soon his entire room is glowing with its light "IT'S WORKING!" slips from his lips in excitement. 'Soon,' he thinks, 'soon Akane will be mine and Ranma will be gone.'
As soon as his mind starts to lose focus on the spell the crystal ball makes a loud popping noise and goes dark. "What the?" Gosunkugi says as he picks up the crystal. He gives the ball a shake and it makes a soft rattling noise like a blown light bulb. "Damn I must have blown it out." he briefly wonders how you blow out a crystal but dismisses the thought and starts to put away his supplies. His revenge on Ranma would have to wait.
As Gosunkugi lays down for the night he misses the black fog rising from the crystal and floating out the window. He also misses the two pink eyes in the cloud and a voice that sounded almost like the wind as it drifted down the street "Guu…"
It was late at the Tendo Dojo but Ranma was still awake, the martial artist couldn't sleep. He kept getting an ominous feeling every time he had started to drift off. So, he was in the dojo performing some katas in hopes of wearing himself out.
It wasn't helping that he kept thinking about his father who had been gone most of the day and still wasn't back. That in itself wasn't that odd, what was odd was that he had left Mr. Tendo at home. Ranma knew that although Soun was often getting into trouble with Genma, he usually was able to keep him from doing things that where too stupid. This is what really worried Ranma, an unsupervised Genma running around town in the middle of the night.
Ranma knew this would end badly, and most likely for Ranma himself.
It was around 2 am when Genma finally returned to the training hall and Ranma was still in the dojo. Genma poked his head into the dojo after seeing the lights on when he returned.
"Ranma, what are you still doing awake?" he asks with a little worry in his voice.
Ranma looks up from his kata and shrugs, "just couldn't sleep. Why where you out so late? You weren't out getting me into trouble where you?" Ranma asks in a tired voice. He already knew Genma had done something from the tone of his voice when he first came in.
"Uh… Of course not boy! How could you think that about your dear loving father?"
Now, Ranma knew something was up. His father was in defensive mode "Out with it old man who's gonna come around and want to fight me this time."
"No one my boy. But.. I met someone on my way home who seems very interested in meeting you." Genma says with a smile, slight sweat forming on his forehead. Luckily, Ranma misses this because it's hid under his bandana.
"Oh great! Who is it? Someone you stole food from and then blamed me?"
"Of course not, Ranma. She gave me the food when I told her she could marry you," Genma says with a smile. The boy thought so little of him, he never stole food. He simply borrows or trades for something of equal value like some stones or some dirt from an exotic training ground.
He never stole. Nope, never...well there was that one time in China... but he didn't think that counted.
"YOU WHAT?! DAMNIT OLD MAN. WHAT WHERE YOU THINKING? DON'T I GOT ENOUGH FIANCEES AS IT IS?!"
"Boy I did this for you. I know how you are always going on about how you are never going to marry Akane, and now you don't have to. Ranma meet your future wife."
"Guu you can come in now."
From around the door comes the most beautiful girl Ranma has ever seen. She looks to be around 16 or 17, with pink hair cut short and brushed down around her head. Ranma starts to lose himself in her pink eyes. Her smile is like nothing he has ever seen. He thinks it could even make a god go weak in the knees. She wears simple clothing; a pink dress with a yellow strapless top.
Ranma's mouth hangs open as she enters.
"Good evening I'm Guu. It is a pleasure to meet you, Ranma," she says in a soft voice that reminds Ranma of Kasumi.
She bows slightly to him and he does the same.
"G...g...good evening" he stutters
Genma grins "Well why don't you two get to know each other. I'll go start working on plans for the wedding. Happy day!"
Ranma glares at him "We ain't getting married old man!"
Guu looks at him and tears start to form at the corners of her eyes "I'm sorry. If I'm not welcome I will leave. I knew I wasn't good enough for you. I just…" she turns away.
In a panic, Ranma blurts, "Wait that's not what I meant. I mean you are cute and all I just … I already got a fiancé. Several, actually, and I don't need another one."
"I knew it. I'm not pretty. Everyone hates me." she turns to leave.
Ranma runs across the dojo and grabs one of her shoulders to stop her.
Genma smiles slightly and leaves the dojo.
Ranma turns her around and she looks him in the eyes tears streaming down her face. "Guu, I can tell just by the few minutes I've been with you that you are different then all my other fiancées. I don't want to hurt your feelings, but we don't even know each other we shouldn't rush this."
Ranma rambles in a desperate attempt to keep this cute girl from crying. "Let's get to know each other first before we make any big decisions like marriage, ok?"
"So you don't hate me?" Guu says as she sniffs slightly and dries her eyes with her hand.
"Of course not." Ranma smiles and Guu does as well.
"How about you tell me about yourself?" Guu suggests.
Ranma nods and they both head over to the wall and sit.
That night Ranma had one of the best conversation with a girl he could remember.
The next morning Ranma is awoken by a scream. He knew the Tendo's had left early that morning to go to Tokyo for a wedding of an old family friend, and they had left Ranma at home with his father and Happosai.
It only took a moment for Ranma to realize who was screaming. Happosai?
Jumping out of bed, Ranma runs down stairs and sees the grand master of the anything-goes-school running out of the house screaming. He looks over and sees the back of Guu's head as she sat on the couch watching TV.
"Good morning Guu" he says with a slight smile remembering there talk from the night before. She wasn't like other girls. She actually had listened to him when he talked to her, and she was so cute he couldn't get her face out of his head.
She turned and looked at him and he went into shock. "What the hell had happened?" Gone from her face where her amazing features that he had fell for the night before. Now, sitting on the couch in front of him was a girl with no figure and hardly any facial features save her annoyed looking eyes and expressionless mouth.
Ranma stumbles back a bit as she raises a hand in a greeting and says, "Yo," in a slightly raspy, annoyed voice.
Ranma could only stare at the girl in front of him. The girl he thought to be cute last night had somehow changed her appearance. She still had the same hair and clothes but that was where the similarities ended. Now she was plain looking, unnaturally plain.
"Yo" she repeated in the same raspy and some what annoyed sounding voice, this time adding a slight wave.
Ranma returns the wave in somewhat of a daze.
Ranma backs up slightly and heads towards the kitchen. Food would help him think clearer. When he enters the kitchen, the first thing he notices is that the fridge is gone.
He blinks and turns to the pantry which is open and, much to his dismay, empty.
"What the hell is going on here" Ranma wonders out loud. "OLD MAN?" Ranma calls out.
He just realized that his father hadn't woken him up that morning. Not only that, but he still hadn't seen him.
After a few minutes of wandering around the house looking for his dad, Ranma gives up and heads to the dojo. Maybe a workout would help him get his head working this morning.
In the 20 minutes he had been awake, Happosai had fled the house screaming in fear, all the food and the fridge had disappeared, the cute girl he had met the night before had become some kind of … thing(?), and his father had gone missing. Things had just been too weird for him and if they got much weirder he might have to go on an 'emergency training trip' as his father would say.
When he entered the dojo Guu was in the middle of one of the most complex katas Ranma had ever seen in his life. Several times she seemed to vanish and reappear on the opposite side of the room. Ranma could only look on with a slack jaw. She could wipe the floor with him if she wanted. Ranma's jaw tightens back up and a grin appears on his face. If he could get Guu to train him he could finally get some real revenge on Happosai for all the shit he had been put through ever since the diminutive master had arrived.
Just then, a cat wanders into the dojo behind Ranma and starts to rub against his leg. Ranma looks down, sees the cat, and goes ridged.
The cat looks up at him and lets out a fearsome cry, "meow".
Ranma in response lets out his own battle cry, "CAT! AHHHH!"
He then runs blindly forward and hits Guu with enough force to knock her to the floor.
She does not fall, however, and Ranma hears a very strange 'gulp' sound right before his world goes dark.
When Ranma awoke the first thing he saw was the sky above him. He could also feel the grass under him. He wonders how and when he had got outside.
The last thing he remembers was the cat but he knew he hadn't slipped into neko-ken. He assumes he had just somehow knocked himself out. Maybe he had fallen out of the dojo.
His thoughts where interrupted when a fish with giant red lips for a face swims over his head.
He blinks a few times, sits up quickly, and surveys his surroundings. Around him were all manner of things. Tokyo tower is there. So is the colliseum.
Ranma blinks again and looks around some more. He spies his father in panda form sitting about 4 yards from him eating from the kitchen fridge.
"Pop, where are we?" Ranma asks, very confused.
The panda turns to his son and holds up a sign, "I'm busy." Genma then turns back to his work clearing out the fridge.
Ranma gives up trying to talk to his father and stands. He picks a direction randomly and walks.
He is surrounded by more and more odd creatures and structures.
Soon, he finds a tree and decides to take a break under it. When he sits he notices someone has carved a message in the tree. He leans over to read it, '19 years, 5 months, 13 days: think I found a way out in the castle to the north.'
Ranma blinks again. Just where the hell was he and who wrote this.
Ranma's thoughts were once again interrupted. This time, when he sees the other message under the first one, 'Happosai was here'.
Ranma sat confused staring at the messages for a few minutes, until he heard a familiar battle cry, "meow."
Ranma turns to the noise. Nothing could have prepared him for what he saw. A cat with hundreds of legs that reached far beyond the horizon.
Ranma sat frozen in fear as the cat walked up to him and started rubbing against his legs. Soon, Ranma was wrapped up with the cat all around him.
That's when his brain finally started back up and panic filled him from head to toe. "CAT!! CLAWS!! SO MANY CLAWS!! MOMMY!!" Ranma's world once again went black.
When Ranma opened his eyes again, he saw the ceiling of the dojo. 'Just a dream,' he thought.
Ranma sits up and sees he is alone in the dojo. He decides to see how much of it was a dream, stands, and heads for the kitchen.
When he enters and sees all is as it should be, he decides to have a snack and opens the fridge.
The fridge is empty save one of his father's signs: 'I'm busy,' it says.
Ranma backs away from the door, shock clear on his face just then he hears a noise behind him. He turns quickly to see who it is and almost jumps out of his skin when he sees Guu.
Guu smirks at him and holds her hands up in a catty pose and ears seem to appear on her head for a moment as she says, "Meow".
Ranma screams and runs out the door.
Guu then heads out to the dinning room and sits down across from Genma who is reading the newspaper.
Genma looks up at her. "Do you know why the boy is being so loud this morning?"
She simply smirks and shrugs.
Genma shrugs as well and gets back to reading the paper.
