Uruha In Love
He's fought and never fallen
He's on his knees before he's on his feet

A forbidden romance

Oh, he's about to fight, she's about to fly

Burnin' loyalty to stay hot
She's hanging on the edge of cliff

A lady trooping with warriors

He never saw true courage till that day

She'll take him to the brink of loyalty
 
Show him that much

Oh, loyal ninja

Oh, fighter lady

So he falls in love with a beautiful princess
Let him know his heart

Oh, loyal ninja

Oh, fighter lady

That's an Uruha in love

He's fought always for Kurei
That he is atoning for their sins 

A dangerous romantic

Oh, he's about to be and she's about to see

His loyalty is true like blood
His love is endless, just as deep

The more he gives the more he has

Cause both of them are truly infinite

She'll take him to the brink of decision
 
Uruha or Hokage now

Oh, loyal ninja

Oh, fighter lady

So he falls in love with a beautiful princess
Let him know his heart

Oh, loyal ninja

Oh, fighter lady

That's an Uruha in love

 

A hopeless romantic

He's on his knees before he's on his feet

She'll take him to the brink of loyalty

Show him that much

Oh, loyal ninja

Oh, fighter lady

So he falls in love with a beautiful princess
Let him know his heart

Oh, loyal ninja

Oh, fighter lady

That's an Uruha in love

Oh, loyal ninja

Oh, fighter lady

So he falls in love with a beautiful princess
Let him know his heart

Oh, loyal ninja

Oh, fighter lady

That's an Uruha in love

I walk into the room, clutching Kougan Anki almost a little fearfully. My eyes scan the room, then almost boggling out when I see Raiha-san perch nonchalantly on the standard issues bed, stroking Fuuko's hair. The tension in the air is so thick I could taste it on the tip of my tongue. Mikagami is leaning against the wall next to the window once again, glaring daggers at Raiha. I blink, working my mouth silently.
 

"Ra…Raiha-san?" I finally get it out. Behind me, I could feel Recca and Domon tensing up. Oh oh. This is not good. No. This is disastrous. Domon have a massive crush on Fuuko and Recca can be very protective about his childhood friend. I close my eyes and sigh. Any moment now either Mount Domon or Recca will erupt. Mostly at Raiha but preferably, I hope they will just spontaneously combust. Better still if they do it at each other.

Hmmm. On a second thought... I open my eyes. This could be interesting.

"You... you... Uruha! What are you doing! Touching my Fuuko!" Domon explode at Raiha. Wow. You can actually see the smoke coming out of his ears. Then my eyes starts to narrow. What do he mean Uruha? Have he forgotten that Ganko and I was once Uruha too? It so horrible of him to just demean us just because we was or are Uruha!

Before I could poke with the business end of Kougan Anki for his insensitive remark, Yanagi-neesan reaches out. And. Drag. His. Head. Down. By. His. Ear. WHOA. Rewind and replay that please.

"Domon! How can you say sometime as discriminating and insensitive as that! You..." Well this is certainly something you do not see everyday. An assertive Yanagi. Domon throw a panicky look to Recca, forced into an awkward half crouch by Yanagi's hand on his ear. Recca shove his hands into his pockets and whistle, looking at the very interesting ceiling as Yanagi continue to rant and rave to Domon about basic courtesy and avoidance of taboo topics. Boy, I'm glad I'm not him. I sidle over to Raiha. He looks very exhausted, with more wrinkles then I remember, like he had not slept for a few days. And he is wearing normal clothes! That is definitely not normal for him!

"How are Neon-san, Miki and Aki?" I ask him quietly. His eyes cloud for amount, then he answer just as quietly.

"Neon-san still moping over Kurei, but she getting better. Miki and Aki are currently scouting out a high school to continue their studies with the large lump sum of money that Mori Kouran had conveniently forgotten about. So don't be too surprise if you see them in the neighbourhood."

"Ah." I can faintly hear Recca snicker as Yanagi continue to upbraid the trying-to-look-very-contrite-Domon. I let my gaze to be drawn towards the action of his hands, strangely hypnotize by the little movements of his long boned fingers against the glossy pelt of hair. I speak up again.

"Are they dead?"

He sighs. " All of you Hokages are so bloodthirsty!" He quip lightly. "Yes, they are dead, sorry to deprive you of your 'preys', Koganei."

I snorted. Sorry? He probably could not stop himself from gouging their guts out of them with a spoon. But again, he is always so loyal and faithful. Fuuko is his 'Princess' after all.

"Is she okay now?" I incline my head slightly towards Fuuko. She had been making tiny noises of distress for the past few minute despite Raiha efforts to sooth her.

"For that you will have to ask Mikagami-san. When I arrived, she was already like this." Our collective gazes swing automatically to the silently brooding teenager at the wall.

"What?" He growl, lifting his hand to brush his fringe away irritability. His hand is bleeding sluggishly, aggravated by his constant movement. I file it away for later questioning, first things first, we need to determine the condition of Fuuko.

"She went craze earlier. She's tranquillised, expected to wake in a few more hours." He muttered. Geeze. What is the matter with him? Did he lose one of his contacts again? Heck. Like I care about him. Yanagi is bustling round the room, putting the fruits into the bowl. Recca helping himself to a banana, Domon is arguing with the fluff-ball and Mikagami staring out of the window. He does that so often I think it is a hobby. As I gaze around the room, I feel a weight that had been sitting on my heart for the past few days dissipate. Everything seems so normal now. Well as normal as it could get with us around. As much as I thrive on activity, these few days have been nerve wrecking. Now all we need is for Fuuko to get better. I pad closer to Fuuko. Then tugging my cross over my head I loop the chain around her neck. 'Keep her safe, okasan, otosan...' I whisper softly. Then I stare.

" What the…" I glared at the three chains and strip of black ribbon now around her neck. Fuuko only wear two necklaces! One is a black choker and the other is a glass pendant from her brother, presently studying overseas. Where did the extra chain come from? It looks so familiar too! I glare suspiciously at Raiha and Mikagami. Either one of them must had given it to her. But who?

"Maa maa! Look at the time! Shouldn't we go and let Fuuko have some rest?" Yanagi chirp particularly after Domon had made a tremendous amount of noise falling to the ground from Recca's strategically placed banana's skin. Mikagami had of course, cannot refrain from making the snide remark, "Primates". Then Yanagi and me had to stop Domon from murdering a calmly watching Mikagami, another large commotion.

"Yes. Please tell Fuuko that I will be visiting her again, Sakoshita-san." The he did the most stupid thing I have ever seen him do in the years that I knew him. He. Bended. Down. And. Kissed. Fuuko. On. Her. Cheek. Right. In front. Of. Domon. Recca. Mikagami. Yanagi. And. Me. I slap my forehand. God! After all these years he is still so ... GOD! There are simply no words to fully describe him. The brainless smiling, socially handicapped guy. The songbird outside of the room burst into song as everything in the room stilled.

"Oro?" He turns to peer quizzically at us as he notice the sudden cease of any movement of sound.. Yanagi and I smile weakly. Recca seems to be in shock. He is not even breathing. Mikagami have developed a tic, one of the muscle in his cheek is jumping erratically and veins are popping out all over his face faster than you can say Al~Presto. And Domon... have turn in to stone. I clear my throat uncomfortable and prod him. He did not even budge.

"Ah...hee...hee" I attempt to hide my nervousness behind a fake laugh. Great. Another WAR is going to start now.

"Raiha-san...If you value your life, I will suggest you leave right now." Yanagi speak in a strained voice, gesturing to the door franticly.

"Huh? Okay okay..." He walks over to pick up his backpack and turn to leave. However before he reached the door, the knob start to turn.

Cliff-Hanger. Tons of Mistakes. Sorry no time to write thank yous...
