"Obligation and Duty"


Okaypokes, this is my *1st* fic. hope you all like it!

Rei is my own character, and I don't own Yu Yu Hakusho..oO{though I wish I owned Hiei and Kurama}


OMG!!!! They took it off, so now, after a week, I put it back on. No more lemon, though. Almost everything is the same.... Soo... knock yourselves out.


The 14-year old girl walked down the street towards her school, oblivious to the fact that she was being watched.

"So, this is the girl?" the black-haired boy asked his companion.

"From what I gather, yes, Hiei," the red-head replied.

"But she's human, Kurama."

"I don't know. I might be wrong. Let's go, we have work to do."

The pair jumped from the tree they were standing in, just before the girl looked up.

"Odd..." she sighed.

She was atleast 5foot 2inches tall, with long, light-brown and white-streaked hair. Her bangs were constantly getting in the way of her green-orange eyes.

"Darn things," she growled as she pushed them behind her ears. Annoyingly enough, they weren't long enough to stay there.

"Hey! Rei! Why don't you cut those things? It's not like you could get any uglier!" her fellow classmate and ~ultimate~ class wench, Leiko called.

"Har har," Rei muttered under her breath. "Why don't you get a longer skirt, it's not like anyone cares about your log legs."

Rei was at the gates of her school and took a deep breath.

"Okay. Get ready for another day of hell."

* * *

"So, Rei, why do you dress like that?" Leiko asked her at lunch.

"Uh.... because I have to..." Rei answered.

.oO{Ugg, if only you knew. I do have to dress like you. You also wears too much make-up.} Rei thought.

"Humph, maybe it's because you don't have anything to show off," Leiko said, grasping for something to say for Rei's brief answer.

"Like you do?" Rei muttered.

"What'd you say? Maybe you could repeat it to my boyfriend," Leiko lashed. Leiko's boyfriend, Daichi, was the school bully; all brawn, no brains.

"Sure, I think I could kick a few butts today," Rei sighed as she stood up.

Leiko was caught off-guard by Rei's willingness to fight Daichi.

"Uh, um, let me go get him," Leiko stammered.

Five minutes later, Rei, Daichi, Leiko and just about half the school was standing outside on the playground, waiting to see some blood.

"So, you ready, jerk?" Daichi asked Rei.

"Whatever. Come on."

Daichi raced towards Rei, ready to throw her to the pavement, but Rei was too quick for him. She jumped up and as he was under her, punched him in the face.

"Dai!" Leiko screeched. She ran over to him, but he was already unconcious.

"You freak!" Leiko yelled at Rei,"Look what you've done to him."

"Humph. He's weak. It wasn't me," Rei said as she grabbed her lunch-bag and headed inside.

* * *

"Oh, Kami, I'm soooo hungry," Rei said as she flopped down on her bed. School was a waste of time after she fought Daichi, so she went home.

"Maybe, I should sleep for a little while...." she sighed before her eyes drifted shut.


'Huh? What's happened?' a little Rei asked.

The nice blue-haired girl sitting beside her patted her back.

'Rei, I'm Botan. I'm what they call they "Grim Reaper".... Um.... this probably going to be hard for you to understand, but, you've just passed away.'

Little Rei paused for a moment. 'So I'm dead?'

'Fraid so.'

'Does that mean I don't have to be beaten anymore?' Rei-chan asked.

Botan winced, 'Yes, you don't have to be beaten.'

Rei-chan nodded. 'But wait! What about my grandma? She'll be really sad...'

Botan thought for a moment. 'Let's go see what Koenma-sama can do.'

Botan and Rei-chan rode Botan's oar to Koenma-sama's castle.

'Here we are,' Botan said. Botan opened the door and the sight was unlike anything Rei-chan had ever seen.

Ogres were running around, carrying papers, talking on phones, shouting to each other. Rei-chan tugged on Botan's kimono.

'Where's Koenma?' she asked.

'Follow me,' Botan said as she walked through huge double doors. Inside there was a desk and a big chair, but only what looked like a toddler was sitting there.

'Koenma-sama, here is Rei Amerasu. I need to talk to you in private.'

Koenma sat up and nodded. He and Botan walked to the next room and Rei-chan sat down. She was quietly humming to herself when Botan came back out.

'Great news! You'll be allowed to go back!' Botan said.

'Really? How?' Rei-chan asked.

'Well, Koenma-sama has allowed you to. But you should be forewarned. Your parent's just died in a car crash.'


"Huh? Wha?" Rei woke up from her dream.

.oO{Odd, why did I just have a dream about that? That was more than 8 years ago...} Rei thought.

She looked over at the clock on her table and the bright red light read 2:30 p.m.

"Shimatta! I'm going to be late!" she cried as she grabbed her purse-sack.

Three minutes later she was at the 'Dancing Akabeko', and ready for work.

"I must hand it to you, Rei, you never seem to be late," her employer, Kenichi-san, said.

Rei just smiled and tried to smooth out her waitress uniform. It was a pink and purple kimono, but the skirt was all the way up to her thighs.

.oO{Ohh.... wouldn't Leiko love to wear this....} Rei thought grimly.

"Okay, order up! Rei, take this to table 5," the cook called.

"Right," she nodded as she took the plates.

Table 5 was two young boy, about her age.

.oO{What are they doing here? This is no place for kids...} Rei thought, but then remembered she was a kid, too.

"Okay, here's your orders. Can I get you anything else?" she asked as she decided to play her guessing game on these two.

One of the boys sitting there looked about as tall as her, with slicked-back black hair. The other one was quite a bit taller, with curly red-orange hair.

"Um... I'll have an iced tea," the taller one said.

"Could I have a beer?" the other asked.

"Could I see some I.D.?" Rei asked.

"Hmmm... Darn, make mine an iced tea, too."

"Okay, they'll be out in a few minutes."

Rei walked back to the kitchen and grabbed their drinks with the next order. She gave the boys their iced tea, then quickly got the order to the other customer who was raising a ruckus.

"Finally! You people take too damn long! When I said I wanted to eat, I want it right then!" the angry customer fumed.

"Uh... can I get you anything else, sir?" Rei asked cautiously.

The man turned to her and looked her up and down, taking in every detail.

"Sure, I'd like a bit of you, too," he said as he pulled her toward him.

Just then the boys at table 5 jumped up.

"Leave her alone," the black-haired one said.

"We don't like it when guys take advantage of innocent girls," the other cracked his knuckles.

"So what? I can do what I damn well please."

The black-haired boy pulled Rei away from the man, and quickly landed a punch into the man's jaw. The red-head followed through by pulling him out of the resturant.

They came back in and put the table back upright.

"Are you alright? Oh, by the way, my name in Kuwabara and that's Yusuke," the red-head said.

"Kuso. I hate it when guys like that try to act macho," Yusuke muttered.

Rei nodded, "Yeah, I'm fine. My name is Rei. Thanks for helping."

"No problem. We felt like kicking someone's butt today," Kuwabara said.

"Don't I know the feeling," Rei agreed.
