Act 6: scene 5

(In the garden… Koenma is under a tree with George and Botan. Koenma is half-asleep.)

George: So how's your vacation so far Botan?

Botan: It's been great! We visited Yukina and the others at the temple and I'm staying in Keiko's house now.

George: I wish I had a vacation too…

Botan: But where will you go? Do you know of a place to stay?

George: uhh… well… no.

Botan (sad smile): Don't worry; I'm sure there will be a place for you somewhere.

George: Thanks!

Koenma: I think I'm gonna throw up… (tummy rumbles)

Botan; Oh Koenma-sama, what did you do to yourself? I'll go see what's taking Kurama so long. (runs to the door.)

(Inside the house…. Kitchen area: Kurama and Hiei are looking for some aspirin.)

Hiei: Hn. I didn't come here to look for some stupid medicine kitsune.

Kurama: I know that Hiei, but Koenma needs our help. Why don't you just get a glass of water?

Hiei: Hn.

Kurama (smiles; amused): Thank you Hiei. Ah! I found it. (shows Hiei the aspirin)

Hiei (with a glass of water): Oh, shut up will you?

Kurama (opens the door): Looks like somebody got up on the wrong side of the bed today. (Botan bumps into him). Whoa…

*~~Quick Flashback~~*

(Train station place… chapter 3 for those of you who would want to know ^^)

Kurama: Whoa…

Botan: Sumimasen!! I'm in a hurry!! (runs off)

Kurama(looks at Botan's direction): Hey! Wait! *to himself* She looks awfully familiar… I wonder who she could be?

*~~End of Flashback~~*

Kurama (still in his thoughts; look of disbelief): Botan? No… (Sees a worried Botan; snaps back to reality) I mean… Botan! Is something wrong?

Botan (frantic): Koenma-sama says he's gonna throw up! Please do something!

Kurama: Don't worry; I'm sure it's not that bad…

(Setting: Ramen House… Yuusuke, Kuwabara, and Keiko are having a talk…)

Yuusuke (eating some noodles; shocked): *to Kuwabara* You did what?!

Kuwabara: I told you I'd get back at the shrimp! So I made this! *shows off his poorly made Barney costume*

Keiko (giggling): You made that by yourself?

Kuwabara (proudly): Of course not! I had my lovely Yukina to help me! Ahh… Yukina my love *dreamy eyes*

Yuusuke: Snap out of it, will you! Keiko, I need a glass of water.

Keiko (with a raised eyebrow; tapping her foot): You're forgetting something…

Yuusuke: Please?

Keiko (hands him a glass of water): You're welcome, Yuusuke.

Kuwabara: You guys have the weirdest relationship I know…

(Keiko blushes.) Yuusuke: Anyways, does anyone want to go with me? I'm visiting Kurama and Hiei today.

Keiko: Oh good. Botan's there too and I forgot to ask her something this morning… (Yuusuke and Keiko slowly exit.)

Kuwabara: *smirks* Looks like it's time for Plan A…. *evil laugh* ( Sees that the two has left him.) Hey! Wait for me!!

(Back in the garden of Kurama. Hiei is on a tree branch with his Walkman.)

Koenma (looks a bit sick): Gomen Kurama, I made a mess of your garden.

Kurama: Well, it's not everyday that we get people who have a hangover here at our place. *smiles*

George and Botan: So he's just fine?

Kurama: Hai, hai. Just a little more rest and he will be back to normal.

Botan (hands up high as if praising; looking up; happy): Thank you, Kami-sama! Thank you!!

George: Well, I guess I better clean up Koenma-sama's mess…. Uhh… but how?

Kurama: Uhh, well, we do have some soil somewhere here… and there's a shovel in the garage. Come, I'll show you. (exits with George.)

Botan: So, Koenma-sama, how are you?

Koenma (dazed): *Music plays* (Koenma sings)

It's amazing how you can speak right to my heart
Without saying a word, you can light up the dark
Try as I may, I can never explain
What I hear when you don't say a thing


The smile on your face lets me know that you need me
There's a truth in your eyes saying you'll never
leave me
The touch of your hand says you'll catch me where
ever I fall
You say it best, when you say nothing at all

All day long, I can hear people talking out loud (Botan feels Koenma's forehead)
but when you hold me near, you drown out the crowd
Try as they may, they can never define
What's been said between your heart and mine

The smile on your face lets me know that you need me
There's a truth in your eyes saying you'll never
leave me
The touch of your hand says you'll catch me where
ever I fall
You say it best, when you say nothing at all

*Music ends*

Botan: *blink, blink*  *smiles at Koenma* (sweatdrop) (Hiei turns up the volume of his Walkman.)

Koenma: You don't know how much I've missed you…

Botan: Nani? Oh, Koenma-sama, You really need a lot of rest. I think you're still-

Koenma: No! I'm fine, Botan… really I am. That medicine Kurama gave me helped a lot.

Botan: Oh good! That means you're well!! *gives Koenma a hug*

Koenma: Botan… *returns hug* (Hiei (rolls his eyes): These two are stupider than ningens…)

(Kurama and George enter with the shovel.)
