Akane ran up to Kagome and Inuyasha. She took a minute to recollect herself, she looked up and thought they would be staring at her by now, but neither of them had moved from their hugging position. Akane took a deep breath and screamed, "EXCUSE ME FOR INTERUPTING, BUT RANMA JUST GOT KIDNAPPED BY NARAKU!!!" "ehhh???" kagome looked shocked, "no way... and here I thought he was a martial artist..." "Yeah seriously, you'd think he'd be able to protect himself," Inuyasha finished. "you guys... ranma was protecting me, and got shot by an arrow, and then he got taken away because I couldn't protect him," now Akane had tears in her eyes, disappointment was showing throughout her face. "I let him down... and now he may be in serious danger because I was too weak and stupid to protect him..." the young girl did not stop mumbling, all she could do was to keep rumbling things of how she had not protected Ranma. Inuyasha kneeled and let kagome go on his back, he glanced over to Akane, and saw her crying and STILL talking about Ranma. He picked her up, and threw her on his back, and started for the sent of Naraku. Not to long after, they spotted the baboon, and stopped in front of his path. Inuyasha let both of the girls slide off of his back, and walked slowly towards Naraku, cracking his knuckles. "I don't believe that guy you got there belongs to you," Inuyasha said. "He belongs to her there, there mates, you cant separate them!" Akane blushed, MATES???? "were not mates... were just engaged... but either way, I don't think he likes me much. I mean I'm too violent!" "if you were all that violent, how come could you not save him?" Inuyasha asked. Soon after he received a hard hit on the head from one of kagome's school books. Akane then stepped in front of Inuyasha, "I hate you, ill show you I'm strong, so don't you dare make fun of me!" Naraku smirked. He placed Ranma down gently... with a toss... and stepped over him. "Come at me then... I'm waiting to see you're brute strength!" Akane ran at him, gave a punch, Naraku dodged the punch, grabbed her arm from the side and twisted it to the back. Akane kneeled, the pain was great, and there was no way to break free. She looked over to Inuyasha, only to find him unconscious on the ground. She flipped over and freed herself from Naraku, and kicked him in the face. Naraku laughed, and grabbed her foot and yanked back, making Akane fall backwards. She placed her hands on the ground and did a back handspring. "Impressive girl... but... AH?" Naraku looked surprise. Her trick had gotten her closest to Ranma, she had grabbed Ranma's arm, flipped him on her back, and had started to run away. By now Inuyasha was up and blocking Naraku's way, and kagome was running along side with Akane. Soon the two girls and Ranma reached the hut, and Kagome treated ranma's wound. The sun started to set, yet there were no signs of Inuyasha yet. Kagome started to worry and went off looking for him, leaving Akane and Ranma alone. Akane sat next to Ranma, holding his hand and waiting for him to wake. As soon as he opened his eyes, Akane flew into his arms crying. "I was sooo worried about you!" Ranma was surprised but hugged her back, he closed his eyes and whispered in her ears, "I'm sorry!" Akane yanked back quickly and asked him how he was feeling, he replied he was fine, and looked into her face. He could clearly see that Akane was crying, and that she had worried. He placed his gently placed his hand on her face, and wiped away the tears, then he slowly closed his eyes, and placed a kiss on her trembling lips.
