The others were beginning to gather, forming a cluster at the southern gate of the hunters' hideout. Blood gushed from numerous wounds on many of the people, but Sesshomaru was only concerned with one thing now that he had his mate in his arms. "Has anyone seen my pups?"
The nearest person, Emmett, shook his head. "Sorry… but my Hime is missing too…"
Alice, who had been listening in, spoke up finally, causing both men to flinch. "Wherever they are, they are together. Hime and the pups will be fine, I assure you."
"Are you sure?" Jasper whispered to his wife. "We shouldn't give them false hope…"
"My visions are vague… but I know Hime is with the pups… Tracking mod-vamps is far more difficult than I originally thought…"
Hime was slicing through the guards as Chiyo searched for the keys. "Gotcha!" The silver-haired hanyou smiled as she triumphantly held up a key. Blood was running down the chrome object, but the girl wasn't the least bit intimidated as she unlocked the door down the hall.
"Not leaving us here, are you?"
Hime was about to slaughter the source of the voice when it occurred to her that it wasn't the least bit human, but extremely familiar. "E-Elidian?"
"Ah, so you do remember me?" The fox demon smiled almost wickedly. "I must say, I'm surprised. Hasn't Luna taught you to track yet? Or at least to check for safety? I could have been a hunter ready to kill you!"
"Hunters make too much noise." Hime grinned at the man. "God, you look old!"
"Yeah, well, imprisonment doesn't look good on anyone, love. Say, can one of you mini-hounds undo this metal clasp? It kinda hurts…"
"Stop whining, ya big baby." A rough, yet feminine voice resounded.
"Raito, wake your panda ass up!" Elidian jabbed the female in the ribs as Ryu walked over to him.
"Oi! What in seven hells is going on!" Raito growled violently.
"Freedom, bitch!" Elidian jumped up, his metal shackles falling off as Raito stared in disbelief.
Ryu moved swiftly, undoing Raito's shackles before she even realized he was there.
"Let's go!" Hime motioned, leading everyone out before heading out herself.
The group waiting outside had stopped growing for quite awhile when Sesshomaru finally collapsed.
The ground awoke Luna as she collided with it. "Huh? Wha… Sesshy! Oh my god!" As she began examining him, tears started pouring down her face. Working quickly, she tore apart the lower half of her kimono, using it to bandage him.
Emmett and Jasper had looked away the second they realized what she was doing. Alice couldn't help but laugh at the two. "Guys, she has clothes under that. See?" Alice pointed to Luna's darkly colored pants, having to look away as one of the zippers caught the light and bounced it into her eyes.
Both guys glanced at her and were blinded. "Shit! That's really bright!" Emmett fell over backwards, causing Jasper to trip.
"Now you see why I wear this kimono." Luna's voice was unusually harsh as she finished bandaging Sesshomaru, who was starting to become conscious.
"Something's terribly wrong, Alice. Her aura's nowhere near stable and she's severely depressed…" Jasper looked into Alice's eyes as he whispered. In her eyes, he saw only sorrow. "Is it spreading to you too?"
"No…" Alice shook her head. "I saw something too sad to tell you… Something that so many died to prevent, yet it will still happen…"
"I see the others!" Chiyo yelled as the small group ran out of the hunters' hideout.
"So do the rest of us!" Ryu shouted in her ear.
Hime was ignoring them both, focusing on only one thing, finding Emmett. Eventually finding him on the edge of the crowd, she tackled him in a hug. "Mine!"
Emmett smiled, holding her close while checking her for any wounds.
"Aww, such a sweet ending!" Raito smiled. "Why can't you be more affectionate?" She elbowed Elidian in the rib.
"Because you keep hitting me! Stupid panda chick…"
"Excuse me?" Raito glanced at the man next to her, then couldn't help but grin.
Luna, meanwhile, had her head on Sesshomaru's chest, crying softly and hoping no one would hear her. 'I couldn't control it… after all this time… I suck at this…'
'So you admit it?' The spirit's odd voice was followed by its laughter, only making Luna hurt worse inside.
'Why should I, you stupid little fluff-queen? I'm THE spirit of destruction. Chaos itself. What are you? Nothing!'
'Just… Just shut the hell up!'
Sesshomaru blinked, confused as to why his chest was becoming soaked, then sat up. Luna fell over on her side in his lap, tears still streaming down her face. "Luna? Why are you so upset?" He slowly and carefully cradled her in his arms, making sure not to hurt her any worse than she already was. "What's wrong?"
Luna attempted to speak, only managing to get out a small squeak before collapsing completely in his arms.
"We gotta get her home, now!"
