"Neh, shall we go?" Yannie asked as she shouldered her backpack. She glanced back at her friends and Christine smiled at her before going back to trying to see if she remembered everything.
"Water, ramen, milk…" Christine listed out loud.
"I'm huuuuungry!" Sarah whined and Cho laughed.
"You just ate half an hour ago, nya!" Miru commented as she tried to catch butterflies with Kiku-chan!'s tennis racquet.
"I'm stiiiill huuuungry." Sarah said with a pout and tossed her backpack towards Link and Emo Sasuke.
"Eggs, cups, plates, rice…"
"How can you be hungry so quickly?" Yannie asked jokingly, "At this rate, we'll never leave town. Honestly, how are we going to cope without Kate here to feed you?"
Sarah pouted further. "She could have not left us and join our group!"
Cho laughed, "She's a SPAI. There are missions she has to do. We can't tag along. It'll be dangerous."
"She could quit."
"Forks…. Oh my god, did I remember forks, Sephiroth?"
The smexy villain turned to his trainer, hugely tempted to say 'No' just to see her reaction. "Yes."
"Highly doubt that would happen. And I'll feel unsafe if she really did quit." Autumn explained, feeling much more secure if she knows Kate and her army of bishies is working to protect them and all the other thousands of trainers out there. Briefly, she wondered if they will bump into Demoonica along their travels - since she's is apparently now assigned to 'field research', which is just travelling with special permissions.
"Are you sure? I can't find them!" Christine screamed.
"They're in the capsule of kitchen stuff Kate gave you."
"Urgh! She gave us all so many different capsules, it's hard to remember everything!"
Sarah pouted some more and nearby Sasuke tried to unpeel his arm from Naru-chan's imprisonment. "Get off me!"
"Don't be so meeeeean, dattebayo!" Naru-chan whined with a flutter of her blonde lashes, "you're just unhappy because I didn't let you kiss me on our first date, dattebayo!"
"Shut up! I didn't want to kiss you!"
"You're so cute when you blush like that, Sasuke-kun!" She teased, "When's our next date then, dattebayo?"
"What?! I'm not…"
"Neh! Au-pin, aren't they cute together?" Fay said and ruffled his trainer's hair, "but I think Au-chan is cuter!"
"No, Au-chan! I'm not Fay-san anymore! I'm Fay-sama! I'm Sama level now!" Fay corrected.
"Kiku-chan! the racquet doesn't work! It's keeps whacking the butterflies further, nya!" Miru complained and her Lelouch shook his head at his teammates immaturity.
"Feh! Woman! Can we go yet?" Inuyasha grunted, annoyed and impatient.
"How about teabags? Did I bring teabags? I've forgotten teabags, haven't I?"
"This is why I don't like travelling in groups." The dog hanyou grumbled.
(stretches arms into air) Ngah! (feels entirely smug that that she is now among the 'Finished-Bishi-Story' club) Shadow! Eternal Star! I shall await you guys here!
Yes, the story is finished, but don't be sad. Lady Demoonica Darkmoon's is still going (yes, I love free advertising…) so plenty of bishi fun over there. Now frolick over there like good little bishi-fans!
Anyways, special thanks section:
I want to thank all my lovely reviewers:
PeaceLoveOcelot, who has been my first reader/reviewer and one of those that I could rely on for good feedback (You Rock, baby!)
Shadow of Phantasia, who I 'mused' into starting her own bishi-fic and who spoils me to no end with sugary treats (I'm going to be fat soon!)
Lady Demoonica Darkmoon, who I still don't believe is reading my fic but it boosts my ego greatly every time I see a review from you. (I'm not worthy!)
ParallaxRider, who was the only one to give me a boy trainer to play with! I hope I haven't trashed his entire character and your reviews always amuse me. (Take care of Spike!)
Eternal star, who also has an ongoing bishi-fic so I shall now commandth all my readers to go read hers…. Now GO! (I shall await your next chapter to arrive in my mailbox!)
Whatever, who gave me pretty Cho to torture… um I mean play with. Good to see you back, I was missing your reviews – thought I lost a reader there when you disappeared for a while. (Sephiroth is indeed smexy though I'm a Vincent gal more –high five!-)
Miru, who…. Disappeared from reviews central but I still cling to the hope that she's still reading and pray she's not angry at me for messing up Miru's character or something (please don't kill me!)
Deidara-not-Forgotten/Dragonfire411 (whichever you are), who likes to write me lots of emails and PMs, I am always honoured to read your stories so don't hesitate. (My 'growing' Deidara! Why did you take him from me?!)
And lastly and most importantly, I want to thank all you lovely readers for reading. It cheers me to see so many hits. Please drop a review if you don't mind (I haven't ever asked you to before but would gladly appreciate it if you do).
Please either sign in or leave an email address if you're going to review so I can thank you personally in a reply, else if you forgot then please check my profile and I'll reply you there.
Oh yes, a huge, gigantic and massive thanks to my sister, Sarah who stupidly wanted to be main character thus a total poking fun and exaggeration of her character and my other sister, Yannie (who still doesn't know she's in the story!). Also (bows) plentiful thanks to all the creators of the bishies used in this fic and Songwind, oh-wondrous-creator-of-bishi-world!
Ok, this is definitely lastly! I thought I'll add an explanation here why this fic is called Bishi & Bashi.
Reason: I was talking to my cousins over my sister's (Yannie) extreme love for bishies then my cousin, who has no experience of the fanfic world, said the following (EXACT WORDING!) – "If boys are bishies, then what are girls? Bashies?"
Thus, the birth of the word Bashi being used among us to define the female characters and the title of this fic.
(wipes forehead) Phew. Longest author's note EVA! (reads back…. I seem to have an unconscious love for using brackets…)
Oh yes, and one last one.
I WUV YOU GUYS!
Ahem, yes, I'll go now…
