Sorry! This is SOOOOO overdue it wouldn't be funny if I put some crappy joke here. I'm actually skipping school for, little known fact about me, a religious service project trip! I went to a completely different state on a school bus and I'll be sleeping in a classroom all week with a bunch of other people on air mattresses! Yah!
Rin: GET ON WITH IT!
NM: (Heavy sigh) alright!
I got the plot bunnies to stop crapping in my garden of writing! So, here we go!
The cat demon opened her mouth to reveal her fangs. Yukio blocked her from ripping his throat out with his pistol. She landed on the ground and spit a bit of blood out.
"Filthy human exorcist." She spat out. "People like you are heartless murderers and the real demons!" She lunged at him and tried to scratch his face with her claws when someone grabbed her arm. She turned around and saw the short blonde boy holding her arm.
"Please don't hurt Yuki-chan." The boy said with small tears in his eyes. "He wouldn't do anything evil, right Yuki-chan?" Yukio silently nodded.
"I don't care." She hissed. "It's because of those cursed exorcists that I lost everything that mattered to me." Yukio walked up to her.
"I know this won't bring anything back, but I lost both of my parents because of demons. We're not that different, really." He said. The girl calmed down.
"How about you answer somethings, how did humans like you get to Gehenna and why are you here?" She asked.
"Our friend got taken here and we're here to get him back." Tamaki said. She nodded.
"Well, you're the only humans for miles."
"Well, he's not exactly-"Hikaru started.
"If your friend is a demon it would help if you happen to know what kind of demon he is." Yukio cringed. How would they explain this to her?
"This is where it gets complicated. You see, he's the son of Satan." The girl's eyes grew incredibly wide.
"You're friend with the lost prince?!" She exclaimed before Kyoya covered her mouth.
"You can't let anyone know, okay?" She nodded and he let her go.
"If you are friends with the lost prince then there's not much I can do for you. Satan has him guarded incredibly well."
"Wouldn't demons call him 'Lord Satan'?" Bon asked. She shook her head.
"Some demons do, but most don't. There have been whispers of a rebellion to overthrow Satan for decades, but there is no power in Gehenna or Assiah that can defeat his blue flames." She turned to leave while the group looked at her in a confused way. "Well, if you're going to rescue your friend you'll need some help! My name is Mizu." The group introduced themselves until they got to the last person: Yukio. She would need to know about a certain detail if she was going to help.
"My name is Yukio, and there's a small little detail you should know." He said as they walked through the forest.
"Oh? What's that?"
"The person we're here to rescue is my brother." She laughed.
"That's not what you said. You said that you're here for the young prince."
"That's correct. We're here for my brother, who also happens to be the lost prince." Everyone froze. Yukio had no idea how Mizu would react to what she just heard.
"So...you're the son of Satan and yet you're human?" She asked.
"Yes, but my brother isn't human. When Satan captured him he mentioned something about a plan to make a new world. Do you know anything about that?"
So the rumors are true then…
"There have been rumors of that plan for almost seventeen years now. All I know is that Satan has begun to create an army of incredibly powerful demons under the name 'Project Yuri'." The group came to the edge of the forest and they saw a small village. "This is where I live. A few other people live here, but they can keep a secret." She said. They walked up to an average sized house made out of the grey wood from the forest. It only had one floor. Mizu opened up the door and gestured for the group to go in. "Make yourselves at home!" Tamaki went in and looked around.
"I see, this is what a commoner dwelling looks like!" He said. Haruhi slapped him in the back of the head.
"First off, don't be rude. Second off, how exactly would you know what a 'commoner's' house is like here?" She said, putting air quotes around the word commoner. Mizu walked in and laughed.
"It's fine, your friend is quite amusing." She said. She walked over to a small fireplace and sat in front of it. She pointed at it and a small amount of lime green fire came out, igniting some of the grey wood in the fireplace. Yukio stared at the fire in amazement. Mizu noticed this and walked over to him.
"How did you do that?" He asked.
"Do you exorcists really know anything about demons?" He just stood there, silent. Kyoya noticed their conversation and walked over to the two. Mizu sighed. "All demons powerful enough to have a humanoid form control flames of some sort. Each kind of demon with their own color of flames, Satan's blue flames trumping them all." Yukio just stared at the green flames burning in the fireplace.
There's still so much we don't know about them...yet we kill every single one we see…
"Alright everyone!" Mizu said. "There's a lot of stuff you're going to need to know if you want to go on this, basically, suicide mission. I can tell you pretty much everything there is to know about Gehenna and demons in the next few days, but then you're on your own. Deal?" She asked.
"Fair enough." Kyoya said.
"Quite interesting~! The way these events are unfolding right before our eyes~!" A familiar voice cried out.
"Renge?!" Hikaru shouted.
"When did you get here?" Kaoru asked.
"When that monster finally let me out of the closet, I immediately followed you!" She answered.
"What monster?" Tamaki asked.
"It didn't really have a shape of its own, it was just a giant shadow that made itself look like me! It kept me locked up for a few days before it just vanished, then this cat came and let me out and started weeping and pawing at this terrifying thing on the floor!" She said, holding up Kuro.
"Where's Rin?" He asked, looking around. Mizu bent down to pet him.
"It's okay little guy, we'll find him." She said. Kuro looked up.
"Of course!" Mizu said. Everyone else in the room just stared at the two, until Yukio realized something.
Did I just hear Kuro? No, I couldn't have…
He picked the small cat up and looked at him.
"Seriously?! I know you can't hear me, but put me down!" The cat complained. Yukio faintly gasped.
"What's the matter?" Haruhi asked. Hikaru picked up Kuro.
"I think he wants you to put him down." He put Kuro on the ground and patted his head.
"I don't think you can hear me either, but thanks!" Kuro said.
I think I've finally lost it…
Yukio thought. Mizu looked at a clock.
"You all should probably go to sleep, we've got to start planning tomorrow, so you'll need rest." She said. "I only have one guest room, it's got three twin beds in it, the rest of you will have to find some sleeping bags or chairs, I should have some lying around…" She began mumbling to herself.
Rin awoke to find himself in a very strange place. The room was made of obsidian and most of the furnishings were grey or black. Torches lined the wall, lighting the room with blue flames. He began freaking out, looking to find that everything that wasn't grey or black was blue, the same blue as his flames.
"What the hell..?" He mumbled to himself. He tried to get off the bed he was on, only to find chains wrapped around his ankles. "Seriously?"
"I couldn't just let the guest of honor run off." He heard. He looked at the doorway of the room to find the same man from earlier- no, Satan himself standing in the doorway. Rin tried to get as far away from him as he could, before realizing something.
"What did you do with Kurikara?!" Rin demanded.
"Such a rude son, I would try to punish you, but you're already perfect." Satan said with a smirk.
"What did you mean by guest of honor?" Satan laughed.
"In three days, there is going to be a celebration, humans would call it a festival, held in your honor as we begin our conquest over Assiah!" He declared.
"No, I won't help you do something like that!" Rin yelled.
"And, in case you were curious, I'm having some work done on that useless scrap metal to have your demon heart removed from it, so you can be free."
"No! Don't do that! I don't want to hurt anyone!"
"Hm, this simply can't do, you'll disgrace the entire family and make a mockery of my plans in front of all of Gehenna! Something must be done about your rebellious attitude…" Satan thought to himself for a moment. "I know! I'll just have to beat it out of you! Guards!"
"Wha-what are you doing?!" Rin shouted.
"It's clear you don't want anything to do with me, so I'm going to make you change your mind." He smirked. "Send him to the correction cell, the special one, just for people like him."
"What do you mean? People like me?! What's going to happen to me?!" Satan yanked Rin's tail over and over again. Rin screamed in pain, but Satan didn't stop. Again and again he yanked and yanked until Rin blacked out. Satan frowned.
"I'm sorry it had to be this way, but it'll all be over soon, just do what your daddy tells you to do and this will all work out fine…"
*Holds up Rin as a meat-shield* I WROTE THAT APOLOGY AT THE BEGINNING MONTHS AGO I'M SO FRIKEN SORRY!
NM: Please don't hurt me…
NM: Nope, all just plot plots
So, the votes are in and….drumroll please…(irony, I actually know how to play the drums)...

NM: (Throws confetti on both of them) although, I can honestly say I saw that coming from miles away and considered just doing it but made it a vote instead
Hikaru: So, what exactly does that have to do with the plot?
NM: Secrets...all the secrets…
I think my brain is broken…
Also! I'm a dual-enrolled student at highschool and college at the same time and this guy thought I was eighteen earlier!
