~hi there, my loyal fans!! This, in case you didn't notice... is the DISCLAIMER... I don't own Yu Yu Hakusho... (if I did, I would be the RULER of the WORLD..) Alas I don't... sooo.. Roses are Red Violets are Blue I no own, so you no sue!! (I forget where I heard this... and if u wrote it down (I likely stole it.. Gomen) then tell me and I'll give u credit too... gee arent I nice? ON WITH THE FIC!!

~some how... some way... the all-knowing and some-telling Black Dragon has "trapped" Hiei, Kurama, Yusuke, and Kuwabara in an ELEVATOR. Thank You~

"Which floor?" Kuwabara

"Idiot. Top floor. TOP. Its not THAT hard, even for a moron like you." Hiei

"Yea, hurry up!" Yusuke

Yusuke pushes the top floor button himself, Kuwabara takes too long... the top floor's number "just so happens to be" (hee hee... im evil) number 100... (can u think of a better number?!) It also "just so happens" that they are only on floor number... you guessed it... one.


"Moron! The door hasn't even had time to CLOSE and you're complaining already!!" Yusuke

"Well lets not make this any more painful than it must be..." Kurama looked at Hiei... Hiei glares at him with his "shut up and stop staring at me" look (well in case you didn't know, he has a look called the "shut up and stop staring at me" look... thought that was important to know...)

And so, the elevator climbs.... and promptly stops again... on floor two.

"Aww!! How ADORABLE is he?! Is he your little brother?" some woman asks as she steps on... she then made the mistake of her life, she pinches Hiei's cheek

The Tantei proceed to run desperately out of the elevator, and into a new one (how convenient... TWO elevators) so as to not draw any more attention (if that is possible... the little old lady on fire seems to do the job in itself)

"WHERE are we going?" Kuwabara

"I don't know... Hiei wants to go to the top..... Kurama replies

Hiei chooses to ignore this, and for their own sake the rest kept their mouths shut, except for that IDIOT who always has SOMETHING to say...

"So where we goin, shrimp?" Kuwabara

The Tantei proceed to run desperately out of the elevator, and into a new one (how convenient, the flaming woman has been removed) as to not draw any more attention (if that is possible... Kuwabara on fire seems to do the job in itself)

"Peace and quiet...." Kurama admits

"Hn." Hiei agrees

"Well, back to square one..." Yusuke

Yusuke pushes the button AGAIN...

And the elevator proceeds its tedious climb... and promptly stops again at floor number three

Yusuke punches the wall... and the doors open

"Hello my good sirs." the old fat guy says

The Tantei members stare at each other, silently in agreement that this man's voice and choice of words were too proper and english-y and quite annoying but do not say anything, they are still enjoying their newfound silence away from Kuwabara

"I'm off at one..." the fat guy says

Hiei's temper flared, Kurama puts a hand on his shoulder and tries (good lord, does he ever try) to calm Hiei down...

And so the elevator makes its tedious descent...

"Back to square one...." Yusuke tries (good lord, does he ever) to suppress his anger...

As the fat guy emigrates, Yusuke proceeds to take out his blind fury on the wall of the elevator

and so the elevator once again makes its tedious ascent

and it promptly stops again at floor number four

"Hello. Floor number ninety eight please thank you you're so nice I can't believe how nice you are I like nice people do you like nice people the not nice people make me sad but I like being happy so I don't like being sad being sad isn't very good for you so I like being happy nice to meet you by the way." some girl says in a fraction of a second

Hiei promptly receives a headache....

"So how you guys doin I like this place do you like this place I think this place is so great it just has so much stuff to do but the elevator is fun too don't you think I think so don't you think so well I do so I don't care what other people think so I guess I can't be a hypocrite then don't you hate hypocrites I do and I think they're bad I think everyone should be an anti-hypocrite don't you gee this wall is dent-y..." she proceeds to busy herself with examining the wall that Yusuke is now quite happy that he dented

Kurama promptly receives a headache

"So how did this wall get dented do you think I think it was a kid yea some punk kid must've done it don't you think so I think they should be punished they don't really need to be punished if they did it a long time ago though cause one time I saw on TV that this guy murdered someone when he was really young like sixteen and then when he was eighty they put him in jail for life don't you think that's weird cause he doesn't have too much life left anyways so I guess the jokes on them this time what do you think?" she stared wide-eyed at Kurama, who backed away slightly

Yusuke promptly received a headache

"Uhh.. Sure..." Kurama tentatively answered her

(Note.. This is about the time we reach floor six... and the elevator promptly stops)

Hiei lifts the girl into the air and throws her far, far away from himself, she promptly catches flame as she is being tossed into the air... the people who were GOING to get on decided otherwise and walked away, blaming insanity

"THANK YOU!" Yusuke

"Thanks I guess... you didn't have to be so harsh, though..." Kurama is worried about being arrested...

And so the elevator begins its.... descent? Yes, someone down below them has pushed the button. Hiei smiles contentedly to himself.

"What are you SMILING for?! We could be headed ALL THE WAY back to ONE!!" Yusuke

"No one will be there. And it was the basement, actually. I set them on fire." Hiei

and so they reach the basement....

"Don't you guys think we can just take the stairs?" Kurama tries (good lord, does he ever try) to be logical

"I know im not walking all that way." Yusuke sits down

"Hn. Yusuke, maybe Kurama is right. We've climbed stairs before. Remember Maze Castle?" Hiei

(This is the part where the all-knowing and some-telling Black Dragon forces the idea out of their minds... because the all-knowing and some- telling Black Dragon is the ruler of the world!! BOW TO ME!!)

And so, the elevator proceeds upon its tedious yet noble task... taking the Tantei to the top floor "whoa... look Kurama! We're at 7 and nothing bad happened!!" Yusuke looks surprised... (wow.. I hope im not corrupting him into a celebration when elevators get to floor 7...)

"WHOA! Look now, guys!! We're at 8!!" Yusuke looks MORE surprised (sweat drop)

"Hn. Try not to be overexcited. You look like an idiot." Hiei says

Yusuke does not celebrate at floor 8... the elevator never reached it. Someone has pushed the button... back down there someplace...

The elevator stops promptly at floor number... two.

And the doors open, revealing... a charred-black yet still-somewhat- recognizable Kuwabara is standing there

He promptly catches flame as Hiei pushes the "door close" button

and so, the elevator begins its slow ascent...

And promptly stops at floor number nine... (note, Yusuke had no celebrations)

"Inspection, people. This won't take long..." the inspector-guy opens up the hatch with all the buttons... and looks at it a little.. And as he begins to close it...

... he promptly catches fire.... and is thrown out of the elevator and doors close

"HIEI?! Why did you do THAT?!" Yusuke

"I had an idea." Hiei

Hiei promptly looks over at the many many wires inside the box. He quickly notices HOW the wires interact with each of the buttons.... and precedes to rip out all the wires except for number (you guessed it) 100.

"Hiei, you do realize that other people on floors can push the buttons to bring us back? This only stops them from going anywhere but the top once their IN..." Kurama has seen the flaw... which really isn't a flaw (Black Dragon loves Hiei too much for him to have a flaw...)

"Yes, but Kurama, you know how ningens are. It'll only take one for the whole building to know that this elevator can only take you to the top. Therefore, we will get to the top, along with whoever else wants to go there." Hiei casually explains his genius plan

and so the elevator continues to sit there... as Hiei proceeds to rip out wires...

"Matte... Kurama? What's stopping people from pushing a button and pulling us down there and then figuring out that we're messing with the wires and stuff?" Yusuke

"Well the elevator probably has a backup system so it won't go anywhere until its all closed up, so that in an emergency they can work without accidently killing people." Kurama explains again (he does so much explaining... poor guy)


Hiei finishes and....

Once again, the elevator begins its ascent...

But it turns around... someone has pushed the button...

"Oh... why doesn't this work?" She asks them

"None do, only 100." Hiei tells her quickly in a then-hurry-up-and-leave tone

"Oh....." the woman gets off... Hiei sets a small spark aflame in her hair, just for laughs

And so, the elevator continues its ascent...

And it goes up, up, up, up.....


Kurama gasps... and reaches for the emergency button... and the elevator screeches to a halt... (the emergency brake... phew! And to think im putting our heroes in danger!!)

"Well this is just great. Where are we?" Yusuke

"Floor 94." Kurama answers.

"Really? We made it THAT far?" Yusuke "Of course. But we stopped." Hiei

Kurama pushes the "door open" button... the wires have been cut there....

Hiei receives cold stares.

"Well I didn't think we'd NEED it." Hiei

"Well WHY did you cut it ANYWAY?!" Yusuke

"Because I thought that this elevator might some day have an emergency... and it would be better not to have the emergency button. Life is funner that way." Hiei (you know Hiei would never say this... I just like it)

"So now what? We're stuck up here in this elevator... no "door open"... no food, no water, and more importantly, nothing to DO!!" Yusuke

Kurama thinks... and smiles to himself, proud of his good ideas.

He pulls out his Rose Whip and cuts a hole in the door, and they promptly escape.

And so, they walk up the stairs until floor number ninety nine, where the stairs have somehow collapsed.

So they take the elevator. (Remember the other one? Well its still there...)

The elevator begins its ascent... aaand....

Someone has pushed a button. Someone WAAAY down there. Hiei suspects floor one. Yes, definitely floor one.... he skillfully pushes the "door open" and it does... (wow I think thats called good luck folks) and they escape again.

To another flight of stairs. (Wow, how convenient. There's TWO.)

Aaaaaaand.... they open the door to floor number one-hundred.

"So what does Hiei want here?" Yusuke asks Kurama

"I'm not sure..." Kurama

Hiei walks straight up to a small table in the center of the large room. On the table, there is a small box. Hiei opens this box.......

........... and removes one doughnut......... and eats it.

And so they return to the elevator... which begins its tedious trip down again....
