Third chappy! This is part two of chapter two so enjoy ^^
Mannen and Gou had a glaring contest while Hayate said "We have no business... Let's go." He was heading toward the door when Kei stopped him by yelling "Hayate! What are you saying!"
"It's not like these two naive girls can do it by volunteering..." What he said next made me seriously doubt myself and Casandra. Sending a cold look at us, he said "It's impossible for them." He then left with Kei yelling at him "Hayate! Wait just a minute!"
"Kei..." Sasame laid a hand on Kei's shoulder and Kei turned toward him in surprise.
"Sasame! You don't agree with him, do you?" He said in exasperation.
"It's not that, but right now anything we say to Hayate is pointless." Sasame looked toward me and the unconscious Casandra. "Besides, Himeno is also confused. Today was agreeable until now." Kei calmed down a bit at the sight of both girls.
"I guess you're right... However... The catastrophe won't wait for us." Kei kept gazing at Casandra with a forlorn expression.
End of POV
I woke up in time to see that the Leife Knights were leaving and Himeno's sisters were coming home. Mayune seemed to be ogling at all of the older guys, which I rolled my eyes at. Sasame stopped at the door before speaking to us.
"Himeno, Casandra... That's the only kind of way that Hayate can talk, but... I want you to understand that it's just his earnestness. Right now- there are no other 'pretears' except for you two." He looked us both in the eyes before saying "We need you." He then left with the others, leaving Himeno a bit dazed and me understanding... somewhat.
"You had guests, I see." Mayune said, looking like she wanted to hurt us both. "How do you know them?" That was something that I knew was coming, so I let Himeno answer in her own way.
"Know them?" Himeno still seemed to be in a bit of a dazed. "It's a secret." She walked out to the garden, still in daze. I followed her and it looked like she was thinking things over; everything that was said, all that seemed to be held in her head. Then she looked toward the sky and shakily said "What... should I do?"
I laid a hand on her shoulder and said "What does your heart say, Himeno?" We both looked toward the sky then went back inside, waiting to see what the world would throw at us next.
We both woke up the next day. Himeno seemed to still be a bit shaken from yesterday, so we quickly got dressed and ready to go shopping with Yayoi. Himeno said "I couldn't sleep, and it's already 9 o'clock!" Himeno was wearing a sundress with an over-the-shoulder handbag and a half-jacket. When we came out of her room, Natsue, Himeno's stepmother, was out in the hallway looking like her usual grand self.
"Himeno, Casandra, are you going out?" She asked us with a semi-glare on her face.
"Ah-yes. We're going shopping with our friend." Himeno respectfully told her. This is going to be interesting.
"Mayune told me..." Oh boy, this really is going to be interesting. "That yesterday you had some friends over. What is your relation with them?" Sometimes, Mayune really needs to shut her mouth and mind her business.
Himeno didn't know what to say at first, then she started to make up a story right on the dot. I'm actually pretty amazed that Himeno can do that without Mayune saying that she was lying. "Well, it was the neighbors from our last house. It seems like they came to see what this one looked like..." Himeno said a bit nervously.
Then Natsue said, "Himeno, since you have become a part of this house, you should possess some self-conscious in your conduct and your associates." My god, that was close.
"Yes mam." We both said, even though I wasn't included in the conversation. I honestly just wanted to get out of there and into the nice, cool breeze of summer, then maybe we could both forget what happened yesterday and hope it is a dream. Then again, nothing is ever that simple.
"Who are you going out with today?" Natsue asked us both.
"A classmate of mine," Himeno replied. "Yayoi Takato. She's been my friend since middle school."
"Okay." Natuse replied. "So long as you're back by five."
"Huh?" Himeno's face was one of confusion.
"Since it's a special Saturday, we have dinner reservations and will be going out as a family." I smiled. Himeno should be glad that they're making some kind of effort to be a family.
"Okay, gotta go!" We then walked out of the doors and onto the square. We were soon in front of the subway train station entrance, waiting for Yayoi to show up. I liked her; she was kind and good, despite the fact that she was an obsessed romance girl. I shook my head, thinking of the one time she tried to imagine me with someone. It kind of ended in disastor.
Suddenly, people started to drop out of nowhere. I felt panicked, worried that somehow Yayoi was effected. I had a suspicous feeling that it was whatever the guys were talking about earlier. As Himeno and I ran to Yayoi, I started to feel faint. It was like my energy was being sucked right out of me!
I almost collapsed when I felt strong arms catch me. I looked down and saw dark colored skin. 'Kei.' I thought. He helped me up, somehow giving me my energy back. He held me up as I whispered, "Thank you." to him. He nodded and we all turned in time to see Himeno hanging off of Hayate. I snickered to myself. Oh, this is so going in the blackmail file I have for her. I took a quick picture and hid it away quickly before Himeno saw it.
Himeno then punched Hayate screaming out something that sounded like a droned on 'no'.
"Get out of here." Hayate then said. I looked toward him in shock.
"Huh?" Himeno and I said in confusion.
"Saihi's 'seed' has begun to activate." Hayate gave a cold look back to Himeno and I.
"Stay here and you'll be in danger." Sasame said with a small, sad smile on his face.
"Are you guys..." Himeno trailed off.
"I told you, didn't I?" Hayate snapped. "Protecting leife is our job. That's the purpose of our existence."
I growled. No way in hell are they going to keep me out of a fight. "Wait!" Himeno and I said at the same time. "Tell us, what do we do?" Hayate looked shocked that we, more specifically, Himeno, wanted to fight. In all honesty, no matter how much shit I have to go threw just to survive and see Himeno's smiling faces, I wouldn't care about how many more scars that I would obtain.
I wouldn't care, at all.
