Four Outlooks on a Rainy Night By Chou

A Brief Epilogue

The rain had passed by morning, and the only signs left of it were the puddles that Hakuryuu drove through. Hakkai drove pleasantly, as if he hadn't been reliving a personal hell last night. He had given Goku food to keep the boy quiet for a while, and Gojyo simply stared out the side of the jeep , cigarette unnoticed and unlit in his mouth. And Sanzo? Sanzo was catching up on the sleep he hadn't gotten the night prior. It was a bit funny, Hakkai thought, that the only price Sanzo visibly seemed to pay for a rainy night was during the morning after. And so they drove, towards the setting sun. There would be other rains, and other pains with them. But for now, the sky was clear, the road smooth, and the occupants quiet. It wasn't much, but it would have to do.

Author's Notes:

Oi. First off, I'd like to thank everyone who gave me a good review, in short, everyone who reviewed. This being my first fic, I wasn't sure how it would be received, and quite frankly, you guys blew me away with how well this fic was taken. So, thanks a ton.

That said, I would like to apologize for the shortness of the fic in general, and the epilogue in particular.

Now, as for what's next from me, as a few of you have asked, well, I'm not sure. My next fic will most likely be for One Piece, and if it gets half the great reception this fic did, I'll be happier than a saru with a meatbun. Ok, that was lame, sorry.

And a half-thanks/annoyance to the person who pointed out (humbly, I might add) that Hakuryuu doesn't have windows. That's been fixed.

Once again, thanks to everyone who reviewed, I dedicate this fic to you, and the individual chapters to those who said "I hope you do _____!"
