Yoko watched as she slept and went further back into to his old lair to find the one thing that always helped him whenever he got wounded and needed something to help ease away the pain,
A hot spring.
' I know it's in one of these tunnels. ' Yoko thought to himself as he searched threw the tunnels of his old home for the hot spring he thought and hoped Botan would like and appreciate for the pain he had put her threw with the arrow.
Meanwhile he was looking threw his tunnels, Botan was starting to wake up from her nape.
" Hmm...Uh? " Was her first thoughts as she raised up from the fur and clothe covered bed and immediately regretted it, because of her leg.
' Oh. That's right. The demons and that arrow, the rain and the tree. Yoko sav... YOKO!! Where is he?! ' Botan continued to think as her eyes adjusted to the light and looking around the lair for any sign of her boyfriends demon side, but found nothng to indicate where he went.
' Ok. Just relax Botan and think, the giant tree is still in front of the cave entrance, blocking us from getting out. So he could've left, even if he could move the tree, he wouldn't have gone out into that storm outside, so he must've went down the in the tunnels. ' And with that, Botan gathered up some of her strength and started towards the tunnel entrance, that was lit up in different places on the walls to help guide her down.
' I hope Kurama won't be upset with me coming down here after him. ' She thought as she continued down and looking threw a new tunnel entrance looking for Yoko.
' Finally found it! ' Yoko thought as he found the hot spring that always made all the injuries he or his best friend Kuronue got go away and for some reason it always made the injuries heal much faster than his own healing abilities.
' Now to go get Botan. ' Yoko continued to think as he turned to leave but stopped when he heard the very girl he just thought of, scream and then heard her it the ground with a thud and from what he could tell, she was in the main tunnel.
" What is she doing! She'll cause her leg to bleed again! " Kurama said angrily to himself as he took off into the tunnel to find his intended-mate.
" Stupid leg. " She said to herself from the floor. She had been doing fine for a while until her wounded leg got caught in a root sticking up from the ground and caused her to fall with scream and in pain, unaware that her leg had started to bleed again.
Then she heard heavy foot steps in front of her and knew it was Yoko.
When Yoko got there he completely lost all of his anger when he saw what kind of state his love was in, with her face dirtied up from the loose dirt on the floor, a small cut on her arm and her had started to bleed again.
So Yoko bent down and picked up and started to carry her to the hot spring, to help her with her wounds to help her to get cleaned up.
" Where are we going Kurama? " Botan asked when she realized he wasn't going to scold her for getting up when she was supposed to be resting.
" I told you that I would make up for putting you threw all of pain from earlier and I'm keeping my word. " Was her answer, he didn't want spoil the surprise he had for her. Ain't that sweet :)
Nothing more was said as they continued on towards the hot spring.
When they got there, Botan was more then surprised, she was also shocked.
" A..a hot spring! " She said as Yoko set her down, but kept his arm around her to make sure she didn't fall again.
" It'll help heal your wounds. " He told her as he helped her over to the springs edge.
Botan only nodded her head at the explanation and looked at her reflection as Kurama asked, " Can you get in on your own? Or do you need help? "
" I think I can get in on my own. " She replied as she saw him move away and go to a small hole to the right of where she and the spring were. " Where are you going? "
" To get you some of my clothes to wear when you get out. And to get you a towel and the soap, while you bathe. " He explained as he turned his back to her, letting her know that he won't look as she undressed to get in the spring.
When she was sure he wouldn't turn around, she began to take her clothes off, unaware of the fox demon watching, every time he heard a piece of clothe hit the floor.
' Of all the times to be thinking of mating with her, it just had to be now! She's injured for petty sake! ' Yoko scolded himself as he felt his lower half stirring again as he looked at his intended-mate again.
When Botan got down to her jeans, she couldn't help but feel like Yoko was watching the entire time she was taking her shirt bra off, but brushed it off, and continued to take the rest of her clothes off, along with Yoko's tunic around her thigh, and got in the hot spring.
" You can look now Kurama. " Botan said as she sat down in the water, unaware that her boyfriend turned demon had been looking the entire time and watched as he rose up with the things he said he would get for her and walk over to the edge of the spring and handed her the wash rag and soap layed the towel over to side and began to walk out of the chamber before Botan called him back.
" Wait Kurama. "
Yoko turned back and looked her, " C-Can you s-stay here with m-me? " She asked with a blush on her face.
Yoko thought it over and knew that if stayed they would probably do something they might regret or something she probably ain't ready for, after all, all his human side her ever did was just kiss, hug, and/or cuddle with each other, but they or himself ever went past that, and they've been dating for 2 years now, sure he would dream about mating with her, but he wasn't sure if she would even allow his advances towards her or if she ever dreamed about mating with him like did with her, since they never talked about mating either.
So against his own good and own judgement, he did as she asked and turned back and came over the water's edge, with his back facing her.
" You know, you could join me if you like. " Botan said as she washed her face and pour some of the water over the rest of her, with her still up in the usual pony she always kept it in.
Yoko sat there for a moment, shocked at her bold statement and got up and started to take off his pants and shoes.
" Could you move up some? " He asked her, fully un-clothed as she stood there with his tail swishing very slightly behind him.
" Sure. " And when she did, he turned around, but instead of Botan looking forward, like he thought she was, she was facing him!
But Botan wasn't looking down there she was looking at he scraps and bruises he got from when was fighting Griffvon and when he got slammed into that tree.
" Kurama. why didn't you tell me you were hurt as well? " She asked as she looked at the small scraps that barely bleeding.
" Their not that bad. " he replied as he walked over to the edge of the spring and got in facing Botan as he put his hand on her cheek and said in that deep voice of his, " Your wounds are more serious than mine, love. " And he bent down kissed her deeply, passionately, and she returned the kiss with just as deeply and passionately, when she felt her hair on her back, loose from it's normal pony tail, she pulled back to look up in her lover's golden eyes and saw love, lust, and desire.
And every bit of it was directed at her.
" Yoko. " she said softly, voice laced with lust, love and desire for her love.
" Botan. " he replied with the same tone and lent back down and was happy to know that she was leaning into to meet his kiss again.
When their lips touched again, it was more urgent, 2 years of imaging and fantasizing about one another came crashing down on them like a ton of bricks and they began to caress one another and touch were they had wanted to touch for many many months, they would embarrass each other and rub up and down the others back, when Botan touched Yoko's tail, his hips bucked up on their own and for a moment, he thought she would get scared and run off, but she didn't, instead, her own hips bucked back at his and that only caused him to get harder with need.
They would caress the others chests and stomachs and then their hands would go else were, Botan's hands went to her lovers ears and rubbed them, while his hands went below the water to caress her womanhood to get her ready for when he would enter her later.
At her cry he stopped his foreplay and she did the same and they looked at each other again and both knew they couldn't wait any longer, Kurama still wanted to ask her to be his mate for life, but couldn't find his voice to say it, so he asked with his eyes and she understood what he was asking both to be his mate and to finish what was started.
She nodded her only once and Kurama entered her with a quick thrust of his hips and stopped when she cryed out in pain.
" I'm sorry Botan. I'm so sorry. " He whispered huskily as he licked her tears away and waited for her to tell him when to move.
" It's ok, Kurama. You can move now, but go slow. " She said to him as he started to thrust into slowly, but then her body decided that he was going too slow and after awhile, her heart and mind agreed.
" Faster. " Was all she said and Kurama complied.
The faster he went, the louder her got and when the end was near, Yoko's fangs got longer and he sunk them in his mate's neck, forever marking her as his and a warning to all other male demons that she was his and if they even looked or thought other wise, he would kill them.
After they settled down down from their high, they said those three words that have been said threw time,
" I love you. "
And after they cleaned up and got out of the spring, they went back up threw the main tunnel and back where Yoko's bed was and went to sleep with each others arms around the other.
Another three days went by before they got out of the cave, the last two was them having a little fun ;)
and back to the portal after the rain finally stopped again and went the spirit world and gave the ruby rainbow diamond to Koenma, who for some reason wasn't complaining about them being late, mostly because they had made it back in time before the entire palace went into a major black out.
After they were finished in spirit world, they left for Kurama's apartment in the human world, where once inside, Yoko returned to his human side Kurama and Botan had some fun of their own.
thanks Botan and Kurama lover, Darkside5454, and xnqyen for your reviews :)
