They stared into each other's eyes, lost entirely to the world around them

"Tomo, I..." Nuriko started. Tomo put his long nailed hands to the others lips, effectively silencing him.

"Say nothing my love. If you don't speak I can pretend you're Nakago."

"WHAT?!" Tomo threw back his head and cackled. Nuriko glared at him. Red light shone around his wrists transforming the innocent bracelets into gauntlets of death. He punched Tomo mid cackle and sent him through three layers of rock in a nearby cliff. Nuriko stalked over to him, grabbed him by the back of the shirt and yanked him out of the rock.

"Now, MY LOVE, let's try this again."

"Anything you can do I can do gayer," Tomo sang absently. He giggled. "Look at all the Nurikos dancing around my head! Wheee!"

Nuriko picked up the taller man and looked for some place that would be a little more...private.

That night they all feasted on turtle steak with snake sauce.


"Hotohori-sama, there's...there's something I've been meaning to tell you no da."

"What is it?"

"I love you no da." Hotohori gazed at the blue haired man with sparkling golden eyes.

"Chichiri...I...I feel I must tell you this..."

*Tasuki and Kouji must be in love,* she thought. *Their voices are high though. Maybe they haven't grown up all the way yet.* Miaka crept through the undergrowth as silently as a bull elephant on mad charge and peered into the clearing. Tasuki and Kouji were sitting in a tree, holding on for dear life while hordes of fangirls gathered below them chanting their names.

"Get me outta heeeere!" Tasuki wailed.

"We woulda been able to if you hadn't let go of your fan you #(#$)in' moron!" Kouji said, glaring at him.

"You try holdin' on to anything when ten fangirls are tryin' ta rip your clothes off!"



Chiriko stared at Night~Mare, his left eye twitching.

"I think you've had enough fun for one day," the boy said. Night~Mare grinned.

"Almost, I only have one more seishi to go Chiriko-sama."

"Don't try and threaten me. There's no one even my age."

"That's least not in spirit." Chiriko tried to puzzle through her words. There was a smirk lurking in her eyes and he knew she was not above teasing her favorite seishi. Who could be older then him in spirit but the same age in body? The answer hit him like a brick.

" wouldn't dare." The author giggled. Out of the corner of his eye, Chiriko saw a midget floating toward him.

"Chiriko! I love you I must date with you! I love you I must date with you! I love you I must date with
