Some Days Just Suck
You ever have one of those days when from the moment you wake everything goes down hill. You burn your breakfast, miss the bus, end up late for class, forget your lunch money and trip over air while walking home. Well, that's exactly how Yusuke's day started out. Throwing open his front door, he kicked off his shoes and tossed his bag on the floor. Glancing at the note his mother left on the table, which had some scribble about going out for a drink, he shook his head and headed into the kitchen to grab some food since he hadn't eaten since last night.
Right as he was picking up his bowl of ramen, hey it's easy to make, his communicator began to buzz and startled him enough to spill his food all over the floor. "Dammit!" Yusuke shouted as he pulled open the annoying device from Spirit World. "What do you want?!"
"Well hello to you too Yusuke." Botan said from the other side. "I hope I'm not interrupting anything."
"I hope I'm not interrupting anything." Yusuke mocked quietly. "Of course you are, and you made me drop my food."
"Sorry, but Koenma has an urgent mission for you so you need to get here quick. I'll open a portal for you." Botan replied quickly.
Rolling his eyes, Yusuke snapped the communicator shut and shoved it in his pocket. Seconds later the portal appeared and he walked through, right into Koenma's office. "Ok toddler, what do I need to do this time." He asked, crossing his arms.
"There's a D-class demon that just came through from Makai and I need you to go destroy it before it can do any damage." Koenma said without looking up from the pile of papers he was digging through. "Botan knows where it is so she'll open a portal for you."
"So am I doing this alone then?" Yusuke asked curiously. "Not that it matters, I'm more than capable of killing a low class demon like that by myself."
"Yes, Kuwabara's been grounded, Hiei's in Makai on patrol and Kurama's currently on vacation with his family." Koenma replied, looking up at the spirit detective for the first time.
"Whatever." Yusuke said as he headed over towards Botan. "Well, open the way."
Nodding, Botan opened the portal and closed it after Yusuke disappeared.
"Do you think he even noticed he was barefoot?" Koenma asked curiously.
"I doubt it." Botan said as she pulled out her oar. "Well I have to get back to work." Seeing Koenma nod, she flew off out the window.
Yusuke stepped out of the portal and immediately looked down as he felt something squishy on his foot. "Gross!" He cried as he wiped the mud off on the grass. Wiggling his toes, he groaned. "I'm barefoot, this sucks." Shaking his head, he proceeded to walk down the forest path. "This day just keeps getting better and better." He grumbled in annoyance.
After about ten minutes of walking, which wouldn't have take nearly as long if he hadn't had to keep stopping to remove some foreign substance from his feet, Yusuke finally reached a clearing. Sitting down on a stump, he crossed his arms. "This is stupid, I should just go home and get my shoes and then come back out looking for this demon. At least then I won't be so damn uncomfortable." Reaching into his pocket he suddenly heard a loud noise. Looking in the direction it came from, Yusuke's head dropped. "So much for getting my shoes."
"Oh look, a tasty human." The fat demon bellowed as he wobbled towards Yusuke.
Rolling his eyes, Yusuke stood up and pointed his index finger at the demon. Without any hesitation, he shot the demon in the chest. "Spirit gun!" Smirking as he watched the pathetic demon explode, Yusuke grimaced as parts of the demon began to fall everywhere, including on himself. Staring down at the sticky residue that covered his body, he groaned. "Disgusting." With one hand Yusuke tried to wipe some of the substance off while the other pulled out his communicator and contacted Botan.
"Are you done al-…" Botan trailed of as she stared at the filthy detective. "What happened?" She asked after several seconds had passed.
"Nothing, just open a portal for me so I can go home." Yusuke said tiredly. "I just want to take a shower and go to bed."
Nodding her head, Botan opened a portal and closed the link. "Poor boy." She said, chuckling softly as she went off to report to Koenma. "He looked so exhausted. This has got to be the worst day ever for him."
