Please, go easy on me. This is my first fanfic. I promise to always use spell check.
I do not own Supernatural or Yu Yu Hakusho.
I read too much fanfiction. There are two fics in particular that inspired this one: Supernatural Fox (YYH/Supernatural) by PlantRuler and Summoning (Dresden Files) by Moonhawk64.
Pairings: Kurama/Hiei, Yusuke/Keiko, and maybe some Dean/Castiel (let me know what you think)
Setting: Post Yu Yu Hakusho anime and season 4 of Supernatural, prior to the Lucifer Rising.
I'm a college sophomore studying botany. What can these stupid ningens (great now I'm beginning to sound like Hiei) teach me? I'm a plant master; I could easily teach half my classes. Unfortunately, I can't expect to get any respectable job without a degree. I've turned my back on the Makai and I'm determined to make my mother proud.
I've had a long day. I was studying for midterms in the school's library, when I was attacked by the crazed fangirls who'd somehow managed to follow me to college. Not long after, I get a message from Botan telling me that some no name demon was trying to prove that he has what it takes to be the next great demon lord. I'm not even sure why I still bother to show up. The demon was a joke. I'm relatively sure Kuwabara could have handled it alone with one hand tied behind his back.
But the truth is that I'm bored. I'm beginning to think that I'm some sort of masochist. I actually miss the excitement of the tournaments. Nowadays, there are very few demons left in the human world that could give Yusuke or me a challenge. Hiei stopped coming to the meetings altogether.
Sighing heavily, I pull into my driveway. I have a modest two bedroom apartment. I don't have a roommate. There's an old cherry tree just outside the window of the spare bedroom. I must be crazy. Why else would keep a room for someone I've barely seen since the Demon Tournament ended. About all the spare room is good for is a place for Yusuke to crash after his frequent fights with Keiko. Recently, that's been about once every two weeks.
Hiei's disappearance still hurt. It's been about two years since I saw him last. I have no one to blame but myself. About midway through the Dark Tournament I realized I had some "inappropriate" feelings towards my best friend. I kept quiet for a while and was content with just being near him. I finally confessed to him shortly after the Sensui incident. He thought it was some kind of sick joke. He still doesn't believe anyone could love the "Forbidden Child". Youko's reputation certainly didn't help either. Ultimately, I think that's what drove him to Mukuro.
As if on autopilot, I walk into the apartment and systematically turn on the lights. Then, I pause. I can sense a familiar aura coming from the spare bedroom. "It can't be", I whisper under my breath.
Tugging open the door, I see my old friend poised in the cherry tree. It's been about two years since I last saw him. Silhouetted in the moonlight, I can see he's finally gotten taller. He can probably stand shoulder to shoulder with Yusuke now. As he steps through the window, I notice he's let his hair grow out. Maybe because of the additional weight, it now falls in waves to his shoulder blades instead of sticking straight up.
"Where have you been?"
At first, he just throws me one of his trademark glares. Then Hiei heaves a sigh, "I'm still working for Mukuro. The robotic bitch can be a real slave driver".
I chuckle a little, "You knew that before you signed on. Why should that surprise you?"
Hiei growls at me and then continues, "Well it's not like I'm needed around here anymore. The idiots are perfectly capable of handling a few puny demons on their own. I don't know why you stay in this filthy world or why you still help them."
"You know perfectly well why," my voice takes on an icy undertone "I owe it to my mother. I don't want anything more to do with the Makai so long as she's still alive. I've resigned to play the role of the dutiful son, Shuichi."
"Nothing to do with the Makai…I suppose that means you want nothing to do with me either?"
Youko chose that moment to chime in ~Wait! Does that mean…Calm down Kit we don't want to scare him away again~
I'm saved from answering immediately by a loud growl coming from Hiei's stomach. "Come on why don't we finish this discussion over dinner?"
I get halfway out the door when the ground is seemingly pulled out from under me.
~Kit? Kit! Wake up!~
'What is it Youko? I was having a truly wonderful dream. It was about Hiei coming back to us.'
~That wasn't a dream, Kit. Now wake up. Something's not right.~
Slowly, I sit up. The world spins a few times before settling into place and I take in my surroundings. Guessing from the moonlight pouring in from the single window and the low sloping ceiling, I'm in the attic of a western style home. There are candles set up around an ornate circle hand drawn in chalk on the floor. Huddled in one corner of the room are four teenage girls, one of which is clutching an old leather bound book like her life depends on it.
"Alright! We've done what you've asked can you let us go now?" wailed a goth girl in English.
That drew my attention to the other end of the room. There was a B class demon on the opposite end of the circle. He was wearing bright, tacky robes and glaring menacingly at the girls.
'Is that Yomi?'
~It looks like him, but this demon isn't blind. He's not as powerful and I can't imagine Yomi dressing like that. He's also too old to be Shura. Where are we?~
"Fools! Does that look like a demon fox to you? You were supposed to summon Youko Kurama," shouts the Yomi look-a-like as he approaches the girls with a wicked looking knife. "You're the ones who summoned me to this disgusting realm. If you can't prove your worth to me as servants, then I have no reason to spare your lives."
"B..but we did everything right," stammers a blonde girl holding up the book like a shield.
~Yomi or not, he's going to kill those stupid girls. What do you want to do, Kit?~
'We have to save them, obviously.'
~They're the ones responsible for bringing us here! We owe them nothing.~
'Exactly, they brought us here. They should know where we are and more importantly, they should know how to send us back.'
"Yomi," I ask as I push myself shakily to my feet. Now let's see if I can get out of this circle. There's a slight tingling sensation, but other than that I don't meet any resistance.
~That must be how they got into this mess in the first place. They summoned Yomi here first, but couldn't contain him.~
"Who are you? How dare you speak my name in such a familiar manner?"
"It's me, Kurama".
Yomi throws back his head and laughs. "Fool. You're just a pathetic human. I'll deal with you as soon as I finish of these girls."
'Great, this day just keeps getting better and better.'
Next chapter: Sam and Dean show up to investigate. Reviews help the creative process XD
