Shang here with my new assistant. I got this game a little over two months ago, and haven't played it but recently. I have beaten the game out its Yin-Yang and decided to make a sane sequal of it. I don't own any of the characters except the new guy. Konami owns them...lucky &'s. Anyway, I hope you enjoy this one. Take it away.

Sasami - Thank you and we hope you enjoy the story, cause I'll be sad if you don't.

OoO( 1 )OoO

Goemon, Ebisumaru, Yae, and Sasuke all ran for their lives. Behind them, a mob of crazed girls ran after them with a vengence for putting a stop to Spring Breeze Dancin' and Kitty Lily's performance for good. They ran through town after town avoiding crowds incase more girls should appear and give chase. Eventually, they made it to Oedo town. They stopped for a moment, and turned to see they had lost the girls.

Goemon bent double panting. "Man, what was that for? We saved them from that stupid Stage Beam and this is how they repay us?" he asked.

"Well, technically, we didn't save them. We never asked if they wanted to be saved." said Yae through deep breaths.

"But...but Kyushu was flying! We couldn't just leave it there!" shouted Ebisumaru.

All three of the others covered his mouth, but it was too late. The mob had heard his shout and came after him from around the corner.

"Not again! Thanks a lot you big mouth!" shouted Sasuke.

"I'm sorry." said Ebisumaru, and he wiped an arm across his mouth.

"Don't be sorry, just run!" yelled Yae.

They ran around the corner and Goemon quickly opened the sliding door to his house. They all jumped in and he slammed the door shut. The mob of girls ran strait past the door without noticing them.

They all sat there until they caught their breath. Yae was the first to speak. "So, what do we do now?" she asked.

"I don't know. Maybe we should see Plasma, he usually knows what to do in this kind of situation." said Ebisumaru.

"Maybe, but we have to be careful if we go out again. No telling when those girls will be around the corner." warned Yae, and they opened the door looking outside. They walked through the town looking back in forth incase the girls should appear again. But they never came back.

Goemon was walking light footed across the cobblestone path as two men crossed on either side of him. One was wearing all black with long silver hair and carried a sword similar to Yae's. The other wore a pink wafuku and an evil grin. As they both passed, Goemon stopped for a second, then checked his sides. His money was gone! He grabbed his pipe and swung it full force hitting the silver haired man in the head, making him squat dazedly.

The man turned around and glared at Goemon with a giant knot on his head. "What was that for?" he yelled.

"Give me my money back!" yelled Goemon.

"I don't have your money!" yelled the man. Then the others checked their sides.

Yae checked her money and it was missing as well. She glared at the man and pulled out her bazooka. "Give my money back you thief!" she yelled, making the man raise his arms.

"I said I don't have your money. I don't have any money but my own." he said.

She pulled the trigger and he dodged the golden missle barely. She fired several times more and still missed as he swiftly, but narrowly dodged. "He's good." she said activating the lock-on.

The stray missles flew and nailed the thief in the pink wafuku. He lay on the ground fried as the pouches of money flew and landed in front of him. They all looked at him and crowded around him, taking their money back. "So it was you all along, I knew it!" said Goemon, earning him a glare from the silver haired man.

OoOoO

An hour, an apology, and a good pummeling later, Goemon and the rest of the party (including the new guy) all went to the inn for a rest. They all sat at the table drinking their drinks, except Sasuke who chose to chew bubblegum instead.

After they sat for a while, Ebisumaru asked, "So, whats your name?"

The man looked up at him and said, "Shang." Then rubbed his head. "So, what about you guys? Who are you?" he asked.

"I'm Goemon, well known martial artist."

"Ebisumaru, the handsomest ninja since James Dean."

"Yae, ninja of the Green Dragon. We investigate strange happenings that could lead to a crisis and nuetralize it."

"Sasuke. I'm a robotic ninja, but my specialty is explosives."

"Hmmmm...such grand introductions. Lets see...Shang, mercenary from Zazen. I do any kind of work involving spying, fighting, and the sorts." he said. "Its really the only thing I'm good at."

"Hmmm...maybe you could be useful to us." said Goemon.

"What do you mean?" he asked.

"You don't know us?" asked Yae.

"Of course I do, you are the ones that stopped that annoying dance opera in Kyushu. It only hit me after you told me your names." he said. At this, Ebisumaru mumbled something under his breath.

"Good, that saves an explanation." said Yae. "We need as much help as we can get. Are you willing to help us if we pay you?" she asked.

"Sure. What do you need?" he asked.

"Thats for later. Right now, everyone get a room here for the night, we will see Plasma tomorrow." she said. They all payed for their rooms and went seperate ways. Yae was the second to last to pay for her room. She watched as Shang handed over just enough to pay for a Bronze Room, the cheapest and most raggedy room possible. "Are you really that cheap?" she asked.

"No, not really. Its all the money I have." he said smiling weakly.

She said nothing and went to her room. She had a Silver Room, nothing special, but it was good. She layed down on the futon, setting her sword beside the bed. She tried to sleep, but the wind outside bothered her. The Bronze Room in this town was missing a wall, and he would be really cold. She sat up and rubbed her forehead. "Why me?" she asked and stood up, walking out of her room.

Opening the door to the Bronze Room, she looked inside and saw Shang sitting cross-legged in the middle of the room. "Are you cold?" she asked.

He looked up, surprised to see her. "Huh? Oh, no. I'm okay." he said. Then a sharp breeze came into the wall and blew past him, making his skin crawl. "Uh, maybe it is a little cold." he said with a small smile.

She looked at him and said, "Follow me." He rose to his feet, curious about where he was going. She walked back to her room and walked inside. "You sit in that corner and don't move. One sign of movement and you will get a blade across your throat." she said.

He was puzzled, but obeyed. Sitting in the corner, he leaned against the wall. She threw one of her blankets and hit him in the face. Covering himself in the blanket, he stared at the ninja lying in her bed and smiled. He closed his eyes and slept.

OoOoO

Well, hit me with it. How was the story? Hope you all enjoyed it. Not much to say here, so I'm out.
