Chapter 3

.

.


.

.

Fuuko's eyes flew wide awake in the middle of the starry night. Gasping sharply she sat up slowly, putting her hands over her fast paced beating heart. What... Fuuko thought, What was that? It...felt so familiar.

.

Closing her eyes gently, she hugged herself, feeling a gentle slight hum around her body. Something so familiar but she could not place it just yet. Even if she didn't know what it was, she felt warm all over, like something was calling her gently. She wonders what it could be. Ever since she was thrown into the new world, strange things happened. Especially when she feels the wind around her, as if protecting her against an unknown enemy.

.

Gently slumping back into the wide soft bed she was given by the Princess Snow, she curled in her covers. Just content on feeling the hum, the familiarity against her very soul.

.

.


.

.

Grinning widely, Fuuko step into the kitchen, ready for breakfast. Fuuko were dressed in an off shoulder black silken shirt with a halter like gray top underneath it. She had found some dark navy shorts in Tokiya's room and used a sash like thing to secure it with the hems of the pant leg rolled up secure on her upper thigh with some clips she found in the drawers. Stretching her arms out, she let out a sigh. She really had a good night right yesterday, better than she had in years.

.

Fuuko walked leisurely to her seat next to a stoic Tokiya, drinking his morning coffee and sighed contently when she saw the food in front of her.

.

Sitting in from of Tokiya were Dorothy who rose her eyebrow with a slight smile on her face. "You two certainly seem like you had a good rest yesterday."

.

Tokiya merely scoff softly in his coffee while Fuuko beamed at the pink hair witch. "Yep!" Fuuko said cheerfully as she helped herself to the food in front of her. "It's been awhile since I had this good of sleep. Maybe it was the bed or something, it really was comfortable." Turning to Tokiya, Fuuko titled her head a bit, "Mi-chan had a good sleep too?"

.

"Ah." Was all she got from him before he continued to drink his coffee.

.

"That's good to know Mi-chan!" Fuuko said happily, "You like the bed too, huh? And the pillows too, eh?"

.

"Ah."

.

"Heh, me too! I guess royalty beddings are different than us commoners."

.

"Hn."

.

"Oh shush you. I know, I know. You're not like the idiots eh?"

.

While the two were conversing in their own type of language, Dorothy and Alviss who came a bit later could only stare at the two people in front of them. The two had such contradicting looks and personality, that makes it hard for them to accept the fact they're conversing on a whole new level. One side with one syllable and another with full length sentences.

.

Sitting back against her chair, Dorothy took a sip of her morning juice. "Say Alviss...Can you understand what that guy just said?"

.

"No clue," Alviss said while he watches the two converse.

.

"Yeah, me too."

.

And so Dorothy and Alviss continued on watching the two in front of them while finishing their breakfast. Amused by how they seem like they were in there own world and they didn't bother to figure out what they were talking about, in fear of getting a headache.

.

.


.

.

"Hey Mi-chan," Fuuko started as she laid on the fresh green grass on one of the small hill the Lestava Kingdom's has. They can still see to the well sized castle, not daring to venture too far in the unknown until they knew what laid out there, especially when there were war brewing almost everywhere. The two former Hokage members at left the kitchen after they finished eating and the former Team MÄR members were to have a meeting on what they should do with the two.

.

"What is it?" Tokiya asked after a short moment.

.

"You slept really well last night didn't you?"

.

"I thought we confirmed it at breakfast, monkey." Tokiya said.

.

"Yeah but it wasn't that, that made you sleep well right?" Fuuko nonchalantly said with a touch solemn tone in her voice.

.

"No." Tokiya said shortly after a while, "You too?"

.

"Yeah, me too. I was woken up in the middle of the night, at first I didn't know what it was but...but after a bit, my whole body felt so warm and familiar. My soul hummed as if something was calling to me."

.

"Ah, me too."

.

The two didn't say anymore but only content on staring at the endless blue sky with clouds stretching as if it can go on forever. With soft breezes lulling around them as if they were singing a soft lullaby, the two were soon lulled to sleep on the soft fresh green grass that smelt like summer rain.

.

.


.

.

"Meeting adjourned," said the princess of Lestava and with that, the rest and herself as while sighed together in unison.

.

They had just finished a short but intense meeting. Deciding on the fate of the two strangers that came to their world by mistake. It was decided that they were to stay in the castle where it was safe until they find another Dimension ÄRM or a way to get them back to their own world. Until then, the members of Team MÄR would be educating the two about MÄR, to learn their ways so they wouldn't feel so uncomfortable and lost in this world. They knew if they were suddenly pulled into another world in the middle of the war, they would be the same, wondering when they would get back to their own home at all.

.

"Where are our guests?" Snow asks her friends.

.

"They're outside, within the protective circle." Alan spoke up being the only one who knew of their presence as he was the one who showed them the way.

.

"Really?" Alviss asked as he looked outside the window, admiring the view.

.

"Yes, why?" Alan asked before talking in a deep smoke.

.

"Well...I suppose the two people out there running for life is not our guests from another world. Just two completely random strangers running from monsters eh?" Alviss had said this so normally and casually that the others took a moment to catch up to what he was saying before all of them rush against the window to see Tokiya and Fuuko running away as fast as they could from disfigured creatures.

.

"Holy shit!" Jack cussed loudly as he sees the swarm of monsters, "Let's go guys!" Silence, "Guys?"

.

Looking around, he sees his teammates jumping out of the open window. Cursing loudly, he proceed to jump as well. "Wait for me guys!" Jack shouted as he catches up to them.

.

.


.

.

"Mi-channnnnn!" Fuuko cried out, running for dear life next to Tokiya, "What the hell are those things?!"

.

"You ask me, I ask who monkey?!" Tokiya retorted loudly to her.

.

"But aren't you suppose to be all smart?!" Fuuko asked as she dodged a swiping claw aimed at her.

.

"This is another world!" Tokiya said as if it explains everything and in every way, it did.

.

"But Mi-chan!" Fuuko whined as she dodge another swipe, nearly injuring her but got lucky when it only nicked her clothing she borrowed, "Geh! You stupid monsters! Why the hell are you chasing us?! And why is it me that they're attacking? Why not Mi-chan?! Huh?!"

.

"They're smart creatures," Tokiya said, "Attacking the weakest one."

.

"Mi-chan!" Fuuko said angrily, "No time for jokes! My clothing are getting ruined each swipe! It's like a repeat of my first battle with that pervert!"

.

Tokiya growled slightly in frustration, "Stop talking monkey, save your breath and run faster. I got nothing to save you monkey ass."

.

Letting out a 'humph', she remained quiet, knowing she really need to reserve her energy. Really, they didn't even wonder far enough to attract anything. They were still close to the castle but those things had appeared out of nowhere, chasing them head on.

.

"Thunder Wind!"

.

"13 Totem Pole!"

.

"Air Hammer!"

.

With those three cries, the powers of each had nearly destroyed all the monsters while the ones left behind injured and barely got away in the nick of time.

.

Both Tokiya and Fuuko looked at their saviors and sighed in relief. They really didn't want to run anymore. It was annoying to just run to save their asses and could not fight back at all, not if they didn't want to live till the next day.

.

"Are you okay?" Snow asked the two weary runners, "Are you hurt anywhere?"

.

Tokiya merely gave a grunt and looked at the others finish off the monsters quickly with weapons that he never seen of before and familiarity of some.

.

"Yeah," Fuuko gasped out, "Just tired from running." They did get chased and ran more then a hundreds of feet while dodging (Fuuko only) to save their own life.

.

Snow gave a skeptical look at her torn clothing, "Are you sure? The clothing..."

.

"Eh heh," Fuuko gave an embarrassed laugh, "I manage to dodge them but they kept on tearing the clothing. Sorry about it."

.

"Don't worry about the clothing," Snow assured her, "I'm just glad you two are okay."

.

Beaming, Fuuko says to her, "I'm glad too! Those monsters seems to only attack me and not that iceberg over there." She points to Tokiya who chose pay attention to them.

.

He scoffed, "Attack the weakest is what they planned monkey."

.

"Hey!" Fuuko exclaimed, her pride being threatened, "I'm not weak!"

.

"I didn't say you were," Tokiya said while rolling his eyes, "You're just weaker then me."

.

"Why you!" Fuuko gritted out before she pointed rudely at him, "I am so not weaker than you!"

.

"Are so," Tokiya said with an air of superiority.

.

"Mi-chan!" Was all Fuuko growled before closing in on him to get a hold of his beautiful pale neck that she can wrung her hands around. How lovely it would be for her to wrap around his slender neck.
