Disclaimer: I have decided, for you loves who reviewed, that after this is finished, on this story I'll be doing some bloopers. BUT it's up to y'all to decide which scenes are able to get bloopered (?) review for me lovelies. :)
I have a favor to ask: Go read Castles in the Distance on Fiction Press. She's a friend of mine and her story needs a little push. I'd really appreciate it.
When Birth Parents Come Knocking:
Thanksgiving Part Four:
"Welcome home." His mother whispered.
He was definitely not at home.
Naru watched as Mai turned to stare at him.
"Mai?" He asked, reaching out to touch her. "What are you doing here?"
Mai said nothing but crouched down to his level and stared at him. Without warning, she reached out and slapped him across the face. Her eyes weren't hers anymore but Akiko's. Naru's face stung from where she slapped him.
"See dear," Akiko hissed in Mai's body. "I was born with paranormal abilities too."
Naru blinked and tried to summon what energy he had left but nothing came. He was powerless against his raging mother.
Akiko turned her head to the side and Mai was gone, Akiko had her own body again and she smiled curiously. "You have no power in the spirit realm dear. I made sure before you came. Eugene didn't even see it coming so don't worry about your ego getting bruised. God knows mine did when your witch of an aunt anticipated every move I made."
He felt empty without his ablities, powerless, and he let his black hair hang over his downcast eyes. He heard his mother laugh harshly.
"My ability is to change my appearance at will." Akiko explained. "I was Madoka for a week, when Gene died and she told your mother she was going to Japan for a couple of days. I was Lin when your grandmother died and I was your stupid Aunt Ellen for about thirty minutes. That witch didn't take too kindly to me inhabiting her body."
Naru blinked, trying to take it all in. People he thought were his friends weren't friends but his mother at times? He shook his head, he didn't really want to think about it.
"Possessions are quite easy once you get the hang of it, of course if you stay in someone's body for too long you'll get stuck in it forever." Akiko smiled nicely this time. "God forbid I get stuck in that little annoying brunettes body."
She shivered and Naru glared.
"So," She said softly. "you'll be here forever with me."
Naru's head shot up, if they were in the spirit realm that meant his mother was dead. Well, that was lovely.
"What were you doing in Mai's body?" He asked, suddenly alarmed.
His mother rolled her eyes. "She came to find you in her dreams so I took over her body and when she couldn't stay any longer I gave it back. Simple."
Naru tried to summon his power again, this time with a slight spark. He just had to keep it secret from his mother, or she'd take it away again. He gradually sat down, much to his mother's pleasure.
"I knew you'd come to your senses dear." She grabbed his hand and he fought the urge to yank it out in disgust.
He'd play this charade and once he got out of here, he'd never question his parents again. Or Mai.
"Gah!" Liz marched downstairs in frustration. She flung open the door next to the stairwell and grabbed a fuzzy little cat named Bruce. "Stop thinking such vulgar things."
The old woman just smiled at Liz, petting Jerry who seemed to be quite comfortable on his master's lap. Lin followed Liz and really wasn't that surprised to see her talking to a cat.
"Carrie is married to Jerry not Bruce." Liz wagged her finger in front of Bruce's face. "Apolo-"
"Oh no," The lady said softly. "Bruce isn't after Carrie, he's after Rachel."
"Rachel?" Liz asked, looking around. She spotted a grey cat perched on the windowsill and nodded. Making that a cat lady with thirteen cats. "So Rachel is Jerry's?"
The woman shook her head again. "Rachel is Harvey's. I just got him so you would've heard it."
Liz nodded in slow understanding. Scratch that. Fourteen cats. Lin sighed, this wasn't going to end any time soon was it?
"So Rachel is Harvey's but Bruce wants her? Well, Bruce," Liz picked the black cat up and stroked its fur. "you deserve someone more nice and preferably one that isn't already taken."
Something in the old lady's eyes changed. "You're a mind reader like I am."
Liz raised her eyebrows and nodded. "Yeah."
"And you need help locating your lost nephew." The lady prompted.
She had Liz and Lin's full attention now. "Have you tried the spirit realm?"
Liz was about to say she had but... She hadn't. "Oh..."
Lin rolled his eyes. "But if he's in there, how do we get him out?"
The old lady smiled and got up. "I can help you with that if you really want the narcissist from upstairs back."
Liz cracked a smile. "Surprisingly, we'd miss him very much."
Conversations with Naru:
Me: Psh. Go look at his 'eye' and then see who's right.
Naru: Fine. I will.
*to be continued*
Naru: Why'd you put the 'to be continued' on?
Me: Quit dawdling.
Naru: I'm sorry?
Me: Tell me if Lin has an EYE!
Naru: I didn't look
Naru: Maybe I did, maybe I didn't
Me: So you aren't going to tell me are you?
Naru: I'll let Lin do it.
Lin: What's this nonsense about my eye.
Me: Hey it was all Naru's idea.
Lin: I do have an eye thank you.
Me: Prove it.
Lin: Go watch the episode of Ghost Hunt where I gallantly rescue Mai from Urado.
Naru: Ghost Hunt?
Me: You know, the anime?
Naru: Should I?
Me: Well duh! You're in it.
Naru: I am not in an anime
Me: Are to.
Naru: I'm a real person.
Me: You're a real boy! (anyone get it? ;) )
Naru: Shut up.
Lin: I do have an eye though.
Me: Okay Mr. Random
Lin: Too bad it's bionic. *leaves room*
Naru and I: Wha?
*Akiko means 'love child' in Japanese and Fukui means 'fortunate'.
Did anyone get the Bruce/Rachel/Harvey thing? ;) I watched The Dark Knight last night. that's why. ;)
