Flashback (Last time on Kanji's chapter[Chapter 3])
"Why hello Wakana-san, it's nice to see you again." A man with blond hair said, grinning at the female. With his troops behind him, smirking at the three humans. "Wonderful, a feast for me and my subordinates, it will be wonderful, would you like to join in?" Kyuso asked. "Besides, our meal will be humans, themselves." He said dangerously. "Knock them out." He ordered his servants, who immediately attacked the three humans.
Yura immediately step in front of the two females just in time. "Uho! Teiho! Tennai! Tensho! Teiho! Tennin!" He chanted. "Kenkon genko ritei! Come forth! My shikigami, Tanro!" He shouted before he threw a paper at the nearest yokai.
"No way..." Kyuso muttered, as he saw his servant got eaten by a no ordinary wolf. "A shikigami?... What are you boy?" He asked.
"I am an onmyoji of the Keikan House! I, Keikan Yura, will exterminate you yokais!" Yura said, glaring daggers at the yokais who looked at Tanro, terrifyingly.
End of Flashback (Now, let's go to my chapter[Chapter 4])
"K-Kyuso, what do we do now?" One of Kyuso's subordinates asked, terrified of the large sized wolf that came out of that little piece of paper.
"That boy." Kyuso muttered. "He's not just a human, he came from the Keikan house." He said, angered by the fact that this boy is here around his own area.
"An onmyouji?" Wakana said, looking shocked and terrified. Oh no... Then this means...
"Wakana-san! Kana-chan! Please! Leave at once!" Yura said as he turned all of his attention to the opposed yokais. "A yokai who feasted upon an innocent human being is to be exterminated!" He said, as he raised his hand in front of him. "Tanro! Devour them all!" He ordered, making the giant white wolf use his strong legs to land in front of a rat yokai and devour him with ease.
"Stop!" Kyuso screeched. "You don't want your precious girls get devoured by my rats now, do you?" He asked, as he snapped his fingers.
Yura widened his eyes and turned his head to where Wakana and Kana is. He widened his eyes as he saw countless rats coming out of the sewer, cracks from buildings and even from the garbage cans.
"Kyaaah! Help! Yura-kun!" Kana screeched in horror, as she tries to press away from the disgusting creatures.
"Kyaaah!" Wakana screeched in horror also, as she pressed herself close to Kana. "I hate those rats!" She said as she tries to get a rat out of her foot, but sadly, it stick itself there like glue.
Yura panicked and turned fully to the females. He said; "Wakana-san! Kana-chan! Wait, I'll hel—" but he was cut short when something hit his head hard, making him turn unconscious with blood trickled down his head.
"Yura-kun!" Both Wakana and Kana screeched in horror, as they try to get the rats off and help the unconscious boy.
"Oyasumi, Wakana-san." Kyuso said, with a vicious smirk on his face.
"You... Disgusting yokais!" Wakana said, before she was hit on the head hard, falling to the floor with Kana, who is also knocked out unconscious.
"Oh no..." A yokai said. "I must report this to Sandaime immediately!" He said before jumping off the roof and run to where the Nura main house is.
Rikuo smiled as the yokais parties in and all out. Some yokais drank some sake while some others plays some well-known human games as well. Like poker for example. She giggled as a yokai tripped on his own feet; she walked over to the said yokai and helped him out. "Thank you, Rikuo-sama." The yokai thanked, before leaving to be with his own friends.
The duo-haired female waved at the yokai. She stood up and unknowingly, she bumped into someone, making her fall sitting on the floor. "Ow..." She muttered.
"Oh my! I'm so sorry!" A female's voice came out. "Are you alright?" She asked, as she helped Rikuo to stand up.
"Yes, I'm alright." Rikuo said, as she took stood up and look at the female who she bumped into. She gasped at the unusual appearance.
She was a true beauty; she has pitch black hair and eyes with pale skin to add it up. Yokais have their own unnatural beauty alright, she could be a model or something. The yokai looked at Rikuo with shock, before she raised a hand and gently stroked Rikuo's cheek. "It's... It's you..." She said before she instinctively (or not) hugged the human.
"Uh... Uhm..." Rikuo said awkwardly.
"What are you doing here, Rikuo-chan?" The female asked. "I thought you were gone with your mother..." She said, looking rather sad.
"I-I am living with my mother... Uhm... Just who are you? ..." The duo-haired female asked, looking at the stranger with confused eyes.
The female gasped before calming down, she trembled a bit before hugging the human once again."You can't forget me... I'm your..."
'Yamabuki' turned around, seeing her husband looking weirdly at her. "Who is that?" He asked.
"Rihan-sama." Yamabuki smiled and moved out of the way to fully show Rikuo. "It's Rikuo-chan... She has come back!" She said cheerily.
Rihan blinked at the sight of the human, he moved to open his mouth, but no words came out. He just stepped closer to see the human.
Rikuo was caught confused; first this woman named 'Yamabuki' hugged her and told this man named 'Rihan' that she's back, and then this man just stepped forward to see her closely. Do you think you will understand everything if you were suddenly attacked by someone strange? Well, she is in a yokai's house, so no bother. She blinked as the man with gravity defying black hair lifted up her chin. His hair... Is almost like...
Before she knew it, Rihan was thrown away several feet away from her. She gasped with pure shock. She was about to go to the yokai and make sure if he's alright. But someone stopped her from doing so. The human turned around and just met Rikun's crimson red eyes. "Ri-Rikun-san!" She said, looking worried.
"Rikun-kun! Have I not tell you to do not throw your own father like that!" Yamabuki said, helping Rihan to stand up in his own feet.
"It's alright, Yamabuki-chan." Rihan reassured, looking tired. "After all, I violated my son's property." He smirked looking at both of the younger pair. "I can see that you've found her."
Rikuo sweat dropped as she looked back and fort at the people in front of her and also next to her. She was sitting with Rikun next to her, glaring daggers at the man across him. The other people sitting across them was Rihan and Yamabuki, who was smiling happily at the human.
Finally, the human gave up. "I don't get it." She muttered, unfortunately everyone heard it.
"What do you don't understand, Rikuo-chan?" Yamabuki asked, smiling at the human.
"... It's nothing, never mind." Rikuo said, smiling a bit nervously. Honestly, she doesn't get it at all; who are these people? Who just randomly attacked her (and when I mean 'attacked' I mean hugs and those crap) randomly. Well, not randomly, but you know what I mean.
Rihan chuckled at the human's confused face.
"Anyway..." Rikun cuts in.
"Oh right." Rihan said. "I'm Rihan Nura. Pleased to meet you, Rikuo-chan." He greeted, smiling charmingly to the human.
Rikuo visibly blushed before smiling back at the male. Yamabuki, on the other hand, stared at Rihan with a confused look on her face. "Rihan-sama, why are you introducing to your own—"
The duo-haired female blinked confusingly when Rihan immediately slapped his hand on Yamabuki's mouth to stop her from saying something. He still smiled at Rikuo but ignored his wife's cry of discomfort on his hand on her mouth. "Rikuo-chan, she's Yamabuki Otome-Nura(1), my... Wife." Rihan said, smiling nervously.
Rikun silently face palmed himself before muttering; "Why does this always happen to me?" quietly before trying to not go to his father and beat the crap out of him for slamming his hand on his mother's face. Seriously, he could have damaged her lips! "Umm... Rikuo-chan, if they're weird to you at some point, please bare with them." He said to Rikuo, who smiled.
"If your parents are that weird, you could have seen my mother; she's often weird, but that's okay, because that's the way she is." Rikuo said, smiling innocently.
The duo-haired male blinked before smiling at Rikuo's words. He raised his hand and then ruffled the female's hair. "Glad you can bare with them." He said.
"Oi, I'm not that weird, Rikun." Rihan said defensively, a vein popped knowingly on the yokai's cheek.
"Though I'm confused..." Yamabuki said, looking confusingly at both Rikun and Rikuo. "Rikun-kun, isn't she your sister?" She asked, before looking at Rihan, who looked at her with a paled expression. "... What?" The flower yokai asked innocently.
"Sister...?" Rikuo asked, before she turned to Rikun, who looked rather pale also. She blinked confused before turning back to the two elder people. "I'm sorry... But I don't have a brother nor a sister. I'm an only child, what my mother said." Rikuo said, looking a bit nervous at some point.
Yamabuki furrowed her eyebrows together. "Do you know who's your father?" She asked, a little bit of hope was in her eyes.
Rikuo just blinked and shook her head slowly. "No... My mother said he died from a car accident..." She said.
The flower yokai looked at her husband, who's expression was covered with his long bangs. Yamabuki got even worried when she heard; "So she really does hate me..." under Rihan's breathe. "B-But, Rikuo-chan, we're your—"
"SANDAIME!" A yokai screeched, slamming the Japanese-styled sliding door open.
"Ryota? What are you doing here?" Rikun asked, actually glad that someone barged in for the first time.
Immediately, Yuki-Onna came over to the scene and screeched. "Aahhh!" She bowed shakily. "I'm so sorry! I know you all were in an important conversation, but Ryota went pass by me too fast!" The snow maiden said, looking worried.
Rihan brought his hand up. "It's alright, Yuki-Onna." He said, smiling slyly.
"Sandaime... Nidaime(2)..." 'Ryota' breathed heavily before he inhaled the air once again. "The Kyuso clan have made their move! They have captured three humans! One of them is an onmyouji... But another human was very familiar!" He blurted out.
"Oh no..." Yamabuki murmured, sleeved hand was brought upon her lips and her eyes have shone with such worry and pity.
Rikun stood up and then turned to Ryota. "I see, I shall do something about it later." He said before turning to Rikuo. "Rikuo-chan, I think it's best for you to just hang out with the other yokais for a while." He said, smiling to the female gently.
But even though that smile was genuine and it's always heart-melting. It was all... Fake. To Rikuo anyway.
"Alright..." Rikuo said, sadness trailed on the word.
The duo-haired male smiled. "Don't worry, I'll be with you after I deal with this."
Rikuo stood up before she was led by Yuki-Onna out of the room. Chocolate brown eyes were still locked on those bloody crimson ones, until the door was fully shut.
Rikuo stared at the sakura tree, seeing its' flowers sway against the wind so calm and comforting. She smiled before it was erased quickly. She was wondering what were the yokais are talking about. The Kysuo clan, right? She was also curious about those three humans being captured by them. She closed her eyes and just hope that one of those kidnapped people are not her mother nor her friends.
The said female shot up and looked around. Seeing no one was there she returned to her original position before she noticed something jumped up from a rock in front of her, maintaining eye-level. "Umm... Yes, that's me..."
"I'm an errand rat, I have came here to deliver this message to you only." The rat said, as he tossed a photo to the female, who caught it instantly.
The female widened her eyes before a trembling finger touched the picture softly. It was a picture of Kana, Wakana and Yura, tied up together with a thick rope. Their eyes were covered by white cloths and their mouths were visibly dry due to who-know's what happened. "W-What... What did you... Do to them?.!" She hissed angrily before standing up to the rat yokai.
"If you want your friends— and your mother —to live; follow me." The rat said, before running away from the Nura main house.
Rikuo growled before tossing the photo away. She ran after the yokai with her full speed, looking very angry and worried. Okaa-san, Yura-san, Kana-chan! Wait for me!
"Waaah! This is horrible!" Yuki-Onna screeched, looking everywhere in the Nura main house, but her search was a failure. "Rikuo-sama has disappeared! Oh no, oh no! Sandaime will be very mad at me for not watching Rikuo-sama very well!" The snow maiden screeched, before trying to find the human girl and hope that she's not injured or something.
"Yuki-Onna, what are you doing?" A male's voice asked.
"Wah!" Yuki-Onna threw her hands up and then turned to the intruder. "O-oh, s-s-sandaime!" She said, looking very nervous. "A-Are you finished with your talk w-with Ryota Neko?" She asked, still looking very nervous... And worried.
"Yes I am; where's Rikuo-chan?" Rikun demanded, looking left to right.
"U-Umm... R-Rikuo-sama..." Yuki-Onna said, trying to think of an excuse. Oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no! I'm soooo in trouble!
"Kyaaa!" A screech was heard.
Rikun and Yuki-Onna turned their heads to the scene, taking a good look at Yamabuki's shaking figure while she holds a photo on her hand. "W-W-What... Is... Is this?..." She asked, trembling in discomfort.
"Yamabuki-chan, are you alright?" Rihan asked, running over to the female. He also gasped as he looked at what was in the photo. He snatched the photo away and stared at it, as if not believing what was in the photo. "W-W-... —Wak... ana... Wakana-chan!" Rihan blurted out, eyes were wide open.
"W-Wakana-san?" Yuki-Onna asked.
"Wakana-okaa-san?" Rikun asked.
Yamabuki trembled. "She's... She was captured by Kyuso!" She shouted, while her husband crushed the photo within his hand.
Rikun widened his eyes before he ran back into the house. Rikuo must have ran after Kyuso to get Wakana back. But she can't do that; Rikuo's against hundreds of rat yokais and she's only one human with no weapons nor anything with her whatsoever. The yokai grabbed nenekirimaru from it's place and ran back outside, seeing his mother cry on the sakura tree, while Yuki-Onna tries to comfort the flower yokai.
The duo-haired male softened his eyes on his mother. "Don't worry, okaa-san. I will get both Rikuo-chan and Wakana-okaa-san back. We'll be a family again." He said, before he was stopped by someone's hand on his shoulders. He turned back and saw his father. "Oyaji."
"I'm coming with you. Whether you like it or not." Rihan said stubbornly.
Rikun smirked. "No matter what I do, you'd still follow me anyway."
The elder smirked as well. "I'll call the others."
Rikuo stared at the abandon factory, it was old and looks like it used to be famous since it was originally big; she stopped her staring session before she ran inside the factory. "Okaa-san! ... Yura-san! ... Kana-chan! Where are you guys?.!" She shouted, looking around.
Without her knowing, the lights were now turned on, making her hand shot instinctively in front of her face, to prevent the light from trespassing to her eyes.
"Well... Well... Well..." A male's voice boomed through the empty factory, making Rikuo aware of her surroundings.
"Who are you?.! What have you done to my mother and my friends?.!" The human demanded, looking around the factory.
A light then was shown behind her, making her divert her attention to the person in front of her.
The male was sitting on a throne with two rat yokais standing each of his sides. The leader smirked at the human, before he stood up with all glory. "Ahh, those little kittens? They're alive, don't worry." He said, as he snapped his fingers, as the curtains behind him was instantly removed, showing Kana, Wakana and Yura tied up together and handkerchiefs were blocking their eyes from view.
"Rikuo-chan? Is that you?" Kana asked, sounding scared and worried.
"Kana-chan!" Rikuo called out, looking worried and paled out at the same time.
"Rikuo-chan! Are you there?" Wakana screeched, jerking her head back and fort then left to right. "Whatever you do, Rikuo-chan, don't do anything dangerous!" She continued, still trying to struggle free from the tight ropes.
"Shut up!" Kyuso shouted. "I didn't capture these kittens just to get you, I'm also after the Nura clan, I'm sure they'll run after you when you came just to get your precious mother and friends. But unfortunately, I will have to kill all of you once I get my revenge on those bastards." The rat yokai said.
"I have one question though, who are you to sandaime anyway?" Kyuso asked.
Rikuo bit her bottom lip before she kneel before Kyuso, not caring if she looks ridiculous or hopeless. Even though that I don't know him, I feel like I have known him before; he looks so familiar in my heart, yet my eyes can only see another stranger. She thought as tears begin to escape from her eyes. "Kareha... Hontouni... Watashini ha?" She asked to herself, as she trembled before the rat yokai.
Kyuso watched the yokai with amusement before he ordered one of his subordinates to bring Rikuo to him.
"Move, human." The yokai demanded, pushing Rikuo harshly.
The female only grunted before stepping forward closer to the yokai, but she only received a hard blow on the stomach, making herself spit blood. "Gaakh!" She said.
"I wonder what will sandaime say when he sees you totally beaten up." Kyuso said, hint of curiosity was in his voice. He used his left shoe to bring Rikuo's chin up, showing the female's angered chocolate brown eyes. "Well, it might take a while when he gets here. So... Let's have a little fun." He said, as he licked his lips like a predator. "Come over here, Rikuo-sama." He said as he brought out a knife.
Rikuo was hesitant at first but she came close anyway. Who knows what will happen to the hostages if she doesn't do what the rat yokai tells her to do.
"Good kitty." Kyuso said, before he pulled Rikuo into his lap, smirking as he brought the knife on the human's cheek and slicing the flesh harshly. "You are beautiful as many people say... I guess there is a reason why sandaime keeps you for himself only." He smirked as Rikuo yelped in discomfort when he cut the human's skin once again and again and again. (A/N: I purposely did that 'again and again and again' thing.)
Rikun-san... Rikuo thought, crying in deep pain as she was covered with cuts and her uniform is slightly ripped off.
Kyuso smirked evilly at his 'artwork'. He grabbed something from his left before he opened the lid of the bottle. "Drink this Rikuo-sama... It will make you feel better."
Rikuo bit her bottom lip before she drank the bottle, only ending up choking the liquid from her throat, trying to remove the poison out of her lungs. "W-What *couch* was *cough* that?.!"
The rat yokai laughed evilly. "Poison that can really kill. But I'm sure you'll live for a short while since you drank only a few... But you'll die later anyway." He said, as he continued to laugh evilly.
... Please... Someone... Anyone... Rikun-san... Save me...!
Kyuso laughed evilly, but his laughing session was caught off by a loud explosion that came from the front entrance of the abandon factory. Hundreds of yokais stood there with all mighty, eyes glow in red vicious color. The smoke cleared out soon enough, revealing Rikun to be the leader, along with his father next to him.
"Kyuso." Rihan said bitterly. "You have been accused for committing treason in the Nura clan for the last ten years; today, you are to be punished!"
"Nidaime!" The rat yokai shouted. "I will not be schooled or stand below a disgusting and disgraceful yokai like yourself!" He shouted, making Rihan glare daggers at him with pure hatred. "The insult you brought to the Kyuso clan and the shame you gave it to our name! I shall destroy the Nura clan right now! And my clan will reign more superior above all yokais!" Kyuso shouted. "Attack!" He ordered his subordinates, making the rat yokais attack fierce-fully against the Nura clan.
"Attack!" Rihan ordered as well, making all of the yokais standing behind him run pass him to go into the rumble.
Many rat yokais were killed, either eaten, killed by weapons of the Nura clan or were just killed by mythical magics of the Nura clan. Blood splattered everywhere, but that didn't stop the battle from raging on.
Kyuso looked at the battle, seeing his subordinates lessen and lessens even more. "Retreat men! We still have the hostages, we can—!" The blond turned around, but only find the cell empty with the bars broken apart. "No..."
The said yokai turned around and glared daggers at the Sandaime of the Nura clan. "Rikun."
"Now, is that how you address a yokai who's far more superior than you?" The duo-haired yokai asked, looking a bit cocky. (Like he always does. xD) "Where's Rikuo-chan?" He asked, demanding for his beloved human.
"Rikuo-sama? Oh... She's over there." Kyuso pointed at the almost lifeless figure of the human, cuts, bruises and blood trickled down her slightly pale body, even her uniform is almost thorn apart.
Rikun widened his eyes before he shouted in anger. "YOU DARE TO HURT RIKUO-CHAN?.!" He shouted at Kyuso, he slightly took a step back. The younger yokai brought out nenekirimaru and launched himself to the rat yokai before slicing him hard on the chest.
Kyuso screeched in pain, as he fell hard on the floor. Blood flows endlessly from his body.
The duo-haired male scoffed before turning away from the other yokai. "Let this be a lesson to you; For you to hurt anyone close to me, subordinates, friends and even my family, you are to be punished with death in front of your eyes." He said before walking over to Rikuo calmly.
Wakana groggily her eyes wide open, trying to see what's going on. Her eyes were then fixed on a man with black gravity defying hair. Her heart beats fast before she knew it, her skin was cold yet she was sweating for no reasons. She looked around and saw Kyuso, attempting to stand up.
"I will... Do this... For my clan!" Kyuso shouted, as he threw a sword directly to Rihan, who was unaware of the blade.
The brunette widened her eyes before she stood up and ran towards the yokai. "Rihan-sama!" Wakana shouted.
Rihan turned his head slowly to the female, but before he knew it, he was thrown out of the way. "Wakana-chan!" He shouted, as he saw Wakana was pierced with the sword on her back to chest. The human smiled intently before falling to the ground due to the loss of strength and blood.
"Wakana-chan!" Rihan shouted.
"Ri-... Han... —sama..." Wakana said, smiling as her life was in a verge of being removed from this world.
"Hold on, Wakana-chan. I'll heal you, just—" The male said, but he was cut off when a warm hand touched both of his hands. "Wakana...?"
"Don't..." Wakana said, almost a whisper for Rihan only to hear. "It seems so ironic... We haven't seen or... Talked to each other... For a long time... But now... You're here..."
"Don't speak, Wakana, in your current condition, you are endangering your life!" Rihan said, looking worried.
"I have done a favor to you... So it's only fair... That you do one favor to me too." Wakana smiled. ignoring Rihan's previous statement.
Rihan's eyes filled with tears; he clutched Wakana's hand and said; "What is it?"
"I want you... To take care of Rikuo-chan..." Rihan only looked at the human, who just breathed deeply. "Tell her everything; about her past, who she used to be and who... Who is Rikun-kun to her..." Wakana said, as she felt her life drifting off.
"I... I will... I will, Wakana-chan." Rihan said.
"Good... If you... If you hurt Rikuo-chan... I'll..." Wakana smiled and let her hand hang on Rihan's. "... I'll haunt you..."
The yokai bit his bottom lip before leaning forward on the, now, dead human. "Wakana... Wakana... I found you... But I was too late!" Rihan shouted, hot tears pours down his amber eyes. "I'm so sorry Wakana! I'm sorry!" He shouted, slamming his fist on the ground. "I love you." Rihan muttered, hugging the brunette's dead corpse, treating it as if Wakana's still alive.
Rikun watched as his father cried and cried in pain. He sighed as he carried Rikuo with him; feeling a tear escape from his eye, he instantly whipped it away. How is he going to explain to Rikuo that her mother is now... Dead?
