Chapter 6- The Haunting of the Past
"The girl is here boss." A man told someone whom he was talking to on his phone.
A man in a black Lincoln parked outside smirked and said, "Excellent."
Kenshin smiled when Kaoru told him she was having a good time. "I'm glad. I thought you were gonna have a lousy time at first, seeing as you weren't too happy when I asked you to go out with me."
"Well . . . I wasn't at first, but . . . you're acting really nice today. Is this a side of Kenshin Himura which he doesn't want people to learn about?"
"Yeah, well, don't get used to it."
Kenshin paid their bill and asked Kaoru if she was ready to go. Kaoru nodded her head and took the arm Kenshin offered her. She smiled at his sweetness and let him lead her outside.
When the two got outside, Kaoru noticed something that made her heart ache. Akira was coming out of a car with a beautiful girl. She turned away from them and headed to the other direction.
Kenshin frowned, wondering what was wrong with her. He grabbed her shoulder and turned her to him. "Hey, what's wrong?"
Kaoru shook her head, the pain of seeing Akira with another too much for her to bear. She tried to hold back the tears that were forming on the corner of her eyes.
Kenshin turned to Akira and the girl and his frown deepened. "Kaoru? You okay?"
"I'm fine. Kenshin, let's just go okay?" She pulled herself out of his grasp and started to walk away.
Kenshin followed her and grabbed her wrist. "Hey, the car is this way."
Kaoru looked around and sighed, allowing Kenshin to lead her to the car. When they got there, Kenshin searched his pockets for his keys. His face contorted with confusion, he looked back at the restaurant and said to Kaoru, "I'll be right back, okay?"
Kaoru nodded and decided to lean back on the car while she waited for Kenshin. She looked around and suddenly felt as if someone was watching her. Suddenly a hand grasped her shoulder, and she turned around expecting Kenshin. "Kenshin, you scared . . ." her voice trailed off realizing it wasn't him, but instead it was one of Shirai's men.
Kaoru opened her mouth to scream for help but he drew out his sword and pointed it to her neck. "I wouldn't try that if I were you, Kaoru-chan, unless you want your precious daddy to find you without your head."
Kaoru closed her mouth, and looked around to see if Kenshin was around.
"We don't need to wait for your boyfriend. I want you to come with me, silently okay? Don't even think about escaping. I know all your sneaky tricks aikou," The man smirked and pulled Kaoru's arm and tied it behind her. Next, he covered her mouth and gently kissed her forehead.
He started to throw him over his shoulder, but a flash of red suddenly grabbed Kaoru away from him.
The man looked around, confused. He noticed Kenshin and smirked. "The boyfriend trying to play the hero?"
Kenshin smirked back and pushed Kaoru to the ground.
"Cocky little bastard!" The man ran toward Kenshin, intending to plunge his sword into his stomach, but Kenshin suddenly disappeared and reappeared behind him.
"Looking for me?"
The man growled and charged toward him once again. "You'll pay for being so arrogant!"
Kenshin disappeared and reappeared once again. "Tsk." He smirked at the man, and punched the man straight in the face. The man fell backwards, apparently unconscious. Kenshin wiped his brow casually and untied Kaoru.
"You owe me again. You know that right?" Kenshin smirked and helped her up.
Kaoru, out of gratefulness, pulled Kenshin to her and gave him a quick kiss. "Yeah. I know that. Thanks." She giggled, noticing Kenshin's shocked expression. "What's the matter?"
Kenshin smirked and licked his lips. "No offense babe, but you're a bad kisser."
Kaoru glared and crossed her arms. "Hmph!"
Kenshin chuckled and opened the car doors for him. "Come on. Let's take you home. I have to say though, that was one hell of a date."
Kaoru couldn't help but smile. "Whatever."
In a mansion, not far away, the man called Shirai, pounded his fists angrily on the table. "You should have gotten that girl by now Dai!"
The one called Dai, winced, knowing what was to come next. "Gomen-nasai, Shirai-sama. I shall accept whatever punishment you wish to give me."
Shirai thought for a minute. "There will be no punishment today, Dai. Instead, I want you to find out who Kamiya's mysterious bodyguard is."
"Yes, milord" Dai bowed his head and headed off to follow his master's request.
"Dai,"Shirai called suddenly. "Don't fail me next time, okay?"
Dai nodded, knowing all to well what his master was capable of. "Yes master."
Kendo practice the next day:
"Come on you sissies ! Move it! Do you all want to win the tournament next month? Then get your pitiful hides in gear!"
The kendo training hall suddenly opened with a bang, and in came Kenshin. "Yo"
"Himura! Do you know what time it is!" Saitou glanced down at his watch and scowled. "You were supposed to be here forty-five minutes ago!"
"I had more important stuff to do," Kenshin said simply.
"What important stuff!"
"Look, I'm here now aren't I?"
Saitou glared. "Get training you idiot! Don't just stand there!"
Kenshin shrugged and followed Saitou's orders. Out of the corner of his eye, he saw Kaoru easily defeating one of the captains of the kendo club. 'She has all that power, and she can't manage to defeat those kidnappers?'
Saitou blew his whistle and signaled everyone that practice was over an hour later. "Good job everyone, with the exception of Mr. Himura who managed to be late. Again."
Kenshin scoffed and glared at Saitou.
"Don't forget we have practice tomorrow. If you're going to be late, don't bother coming at all," Saitou said glaring at Kenshin in particular.
The team was released a moment later. Sano and Aoshi were leaning casually against the wall waiting for Kenshin.
Kenshin came out five minutes later, looking very grumpy. "What the fuck is Saitou's deal!"
"Well, maybe if you just followed his orders like the rest of us, he won't give you such a hard time," came Kaoru's voice.
Kenshin smirked and went over to her. "Hey babe." Kaoru raised a brow as Kenshin wrapped his arms around her waist. Sano shook his head and felt sorry for Kenshin as he saw him give his cousin a kiss on the cheek.
Kaoru dug her elbow in to Kenshin's stomach and kicked him on the shin. Kenshin gasped as the air was knocked out of him and fell to the ground, clutching his stomach. She smiled down at him and blew him a kiss. "I'm not your babe," she gave him another one of her sweet smiles before marching off.
"What is her deal?"
"Kaoru!" Kaoru turned around to see who had called her name. It was Akira. "Kaoru wait up!"
Kaoru stopped in her tracks and turned to face him, immediately plastering a fake smile on her face. "Hey."
"I wanted to ask you if you wanted to go out today. You know, just hang out like we used to do?" Akira smiled taking Kaoru's palm in his.
Kaoru though for a minute. 'Should I do it? I don't know what to do!'
