Okay sorry for the delay. Here's the next chapter! Please don't hate me for not updating sooner. The computer has been down and the internet is screwy and my dad has a password on the comp. so I can't get on very often and I'm in my Senior year in high school. But anyway here's the long overdue update! third chapter is in my brain and is going on paper as I type this. So ENJOY!
It all comes out and someone gets captured
I looked over at him, Kyo seemed lost in his own world. "Kyo? Are you alright?" I asked placing a clawed hand on his shoulder.
He looked at me from the corner of his eye and stood up, walked behind me and put my necklace back on for me. He smiled at my shocked expression. "It's been thirty minutes." He chuckled as it finally dawned on me what he meant.
I laughed and stood up. Walking over to the other side of the clearing I walked into the sunlight streaming in through the trees. I smiled as I felt the heat on my wings as they disappeared. I looked back at Kyo smiling, "Come on. My sister and Shigure must be looking for us by now. Angel is probably freaking out." he nodded and we began our walk back to Shigure's house.
With Angel and the others...
"For the thousandth time Shigure. I'm sure they're not doing anything but talking." Angel was frustrated.
And that was putting it mildly.
Yuki was rubbing his temples. I just hope they get back soon so we don't have to hear him talk about it anymore. He sighed.
"But Kyon is alone with her! He shouldn't be alone with a girl who is-" Angel cut him off.
"FOR THE LAST TIME! I'm sure they aren't doing anything." she sighed and plopped into a chair. "She's probably had her necklace fall off if anything." she mumbled.
Shigure's ears perked up. "What necklace?"
Yuki was now listening intently as well.
Angel huffed. "Well she is the cat right? The necklace is like that bracelet that Kyo wears. It keeps her other form from coming out." she shrugged. "Although being a humanoid cat with wings isn't that bad in my opinion." she said with a blank look.
"What?" Yuki asked confused.
Angel looked at them seeming to just realize that she had said that outloud. Well I guess I have no choice now. She sat up and started to explain. "Well you see Alex's form is well..."
Back with Kyo and Alex...
"So who else is in your Zodiac? I mean up until now I never even knew that there was another Zodiac." he said walking with his hands clasped behind his head.
"Well besides me and Angel, there's Fokori-who is the God of our Zodiac and my older brother. Then my cousin Marina is the Ox and my other cousin Raph is the Horse. I'm not related to any of the others so I can't really tell you about them." she replied.
He nodded. "Hey we should probably pick up the pace. It's getting dark out."
I looked ahead of us and saw Shigure's house. I looked at Kyo, he glanced at me and I smirked. I began to run towards the house at half my full speed. Kyo wasn't far behind. He was catching up but I could see that he was beginning to tire out after about ten minutes of running.
Man that girl can run. That was all I could think as we started running towards the Dog's house. After about ten minutes of hard running to keep up with her I started to feel tired. As if she could read me like a book she started to slow down and right as we came up to the house we both stopped. Me catching my breath and her leaning up against the post that held up the second floor balcony.
"You okay Kyo?" I could hear the worry in her voice.
I nodded and looked up at her from my sitting position on the ground. "I'll be fine. I just need to catch my breath."
She sighed and plopped down next to me. When I looked at her she was staring at the night sky, staring at the stars and the moon would be more accurate.
"Are you okay Alex?" I asked her wondering what had captured her attention.
"Hmm?" she turned to me. Her eyes reflecting the blue of the night sky.
I chuckled at her response. "I asked if you were okay? You seem to be spacing out a lot." she shrugged.
"I'm a spacey person when I have time to myself." she turned to me. "Should we go in and assess the damage?" she asked with a smile in her blue eyes.
I grinned. "I think they've suffered with Shigure's mind long enough."
We were laughing when we entered and saw Angel, Shigure and Yuki all staring at us.
I hate it when people stare at me. Can I just say that right now? Whenever people stare at me it means something bad is going to happen. I sighed and stepped into the room. "What are you all staring at?"
"Well Kyo doesn't laugh often and-" Angel cut Yuki off.
"And we had heard noises and thought something bad had happened." I could tell she was lying.
"Angel you're my twin sister. And You. Are. Lying." I walked up to her and backed her up so that she fell back onto the couch. "Now tell the truth rat." I hissed.
I could feel everyone but Kyo backing up away from me. I held up a hand and said "No one leaves the room until I get some answers." I turned to glare at them.
I turned back to Angel. "Now spill."
She sighed. "I told them." she mumbled but I could hear her with my cat hearing.
I took a deep breath and counted to ten like my therapist said-Ah screw it.
"WHY DID YOU TELL THEM?!"
"I'm sorry! It kind of just spilled out."
"Well that kind of information doesn't just SPILL OUT!" I sighed and rubbed my temples. "Is there anything ELSE that you told them that I should be aware of?"
"Well I kinda, sorta, maybe, probably, kinda told them about your um..." I knew what she was gonna say, she didn't need to elaborate.
"Well why didn't you just tell them my life's story while you were at it?! You never THINK about these things Angel! Geez!" I walked out of the room.
"Where are you going Alex?" she asked.
I turned to glare at her. "I'm taking a walk. MOTHER." I opened the door and slammed it on my way out.
With everyone else...
"What was that all about?" Yuki asked Angel.
"She doesn't like other people knowing about her life unless she tells them." Angel sighed. "And she's right. I never think before I speak about that kind of stuff." she plopped down onto the couch.
Kyo had remained quiet during the entire exchange.
"Does it hurt?"
Kyo looked at Yuki. "What?"
"Does it hurt for you to think?" Kyo growled.
"Shut up rat." He turned to Angel. "How could you hurt your sister like that? You know she doesn't like it when you do that, yet you did it anyway." he shook his head. "I'm going to go see if I can find her." he opend the door and left.
How could I have been so stupid as to think I could trust her not to tell them? Alex sighed. Well at least now I'm through that stage. Now I just need to find out from Fokori if I can leave and live with- A rustle in the bushes cut off my thoughts. I whirled around. "Who's there?" I got ready to change when the person who had been following me for the last little while came out of the bushes...with a gun.
"You are comming with me." said the man. He stepped forward into the clearing a little more, now that my eyes had adjusted I could see him. He was wearing a black suit and...sunglasses?
Who in their right mind wears sunglasses at night? I shook my head. "I ain't going anywhere with you mister. Why have you been following me?" I had to keep him distracted so I could reach for the bracelet on my wrist.
"I would think it would be obvious. I know who you are and what you are girl. My boss has sent me here to retrieve you and bring you back."
"And I would think it would be obvious that if you know what I really am you would have brought back up." I said tapping the bracelet to let Angel know I was in trouble. Then taking off my necklace and my bracelet, I let the change take over, but this time I changed into something different.
My wings were now white with black splattered all over. My ears were on top of my head and were black with sun and moon earrings in each of them. My claws were the same only now they were more catlike, and my outfit had changed too. I was wearing a white top that had a blue cross and blue gloves on my arms, my pants resembled my shirt.
I could see a light a little ways ahead of me, I ran towards it in time to hear Alex say, "So you really didn't bring back up?" I turned to look at who she was talking to and my eyes narrowed.
Stepping into the clearing Alex turned towards me. "Hey Kyo." at my look she continued. "I'll explain later right now I need your help getting rid of this guy." I nodded and the fight ensued.
About half way into it the guy had us cornered. "To answer your question Alexendria, yes I did bring back up." and he shot her with what looked like a tranqulizer. I was too tired to do much more than slump and fall into unconciousness. But not before I heard something. "Yeah Urasa I've got her." and my vision went black.
