Title : We Are Not Enemies, We Are Friends

While Belphegor's killing instincts were truly on a frightening level, he was by far willing to leave them deactivated while with someone capable of giving him a good reason to; in Yamamoto's case, it was his dad's sushi. As for the Kokuyo pair, they were truly not above trying to kill even those considered allies to them. Just stepping into their domain, and they'll both lash out in their own...vicious ways.
This is the reason why Yamamoto is currently struggling to survive after entering Kokuyo Land. Joshima Ken is truly determined to bite all of his skin off without hesitation, and Kakimoto Chikusa couldn't care less about decorating the walls with thousands of his needles.
Initially, Yamamoto was confused about their pleasure in killing all their uninvited guests, but at this moment, he has figured out that this level of hostility isn't something to do with instinct...but protection. Mukuro had been chased out of the airport mercilessly, two days ago, and Yamamoto had spent the first day being under pressure by Gokudera and Dino.
The next day, he was busy trying to continue his daily life normally without having to meet Gokudera's glares or one of Dino's subordinates being on the look out. During the evening of that day he was determined to give the illusionist a visit, but felt that it would be best for him to be left to relax another day.
By today's morning, he sees that either Mukuro needs more rest, or is permanently un-welcoming towards anyone.
"Cut it out, Ken, this guy isn't going to lose so easily." Chikusa suddenly commands, his thin figure still mostly hidden within the shadows.
The transformed Ken turns back to look at Chikusa, annoyed, while having Yamamoto slightly hanging from a big pipe near the ceiling, which he is struggling to stay on. True, this rain guardian isn't so nice as to surrender like that, but not doing so is still very hard, especially in such a small hallway.
"Huh? I don't want to!" Ken yells. He truly does enjoy trying to murder the baseball player.
Chikusa doesn't give a reply, but simply retreats back into the darkness. For the next few moments, Ken continues to try and attack Yamamoto in his lion form. Though more bruises are left on the rain guardian, the hunt ends in the Vongola's favor when he slips into some shadows, and doesn't sense the other following.
Though he finds it somewhat suspicious, he simply continues to advance.
In a short while, does Yamamoto come across a room with the door closed. Hanging from the door knob is a sign saying 'Do Not Enter', and this makes Yamamoto believe that this must be Mukuro's room. However wrong it is to disobey the sign, Yamamoto swallows his guts and carefully opens the door, where inside, Mukuro is sitting sideways on the window frame, looking out the window.
His expression isn't of amusement at all.
"Mukuro..." Yamamoto mutters, and as he steps into the room a bit, his mind tells him that his presence is now known, despite there being no response. He believes in it nonetheless.
"I'm sorry for what happened to you back at the airport. I wish everyone would just be nicer to you. I..."
While going on in his attempt to apologize for his inability to save Mukuro from humiliation, the other begins to laugh.
"So, Ken and Chikusa were unable to keep out guests, how sad. However, I'm glad to see you've actually made it, even more to my own room." Mukuro looks at the rain guardian, his happy expression back as usual. Yamamoto returns the gaze with slight disappointment.
He knows what he saw and that was sadness. To hide it is wrong, yet Mukuro is still doing it. Wearing a mask or two only puts others on the wrong track of how one feels, and that kind of behavior Yamamoto disapproves. Sadly, it doesn't seem like he is going to get a chance to reveal this.
"Congratulations." Mukuro whispers, and just for a second, does Yamamoto see sadness in the former's eyes. Genuinely, great sadness, hidden under layers of illusions made to deceive.
Before he knows it, other illusions of said master transports him back to the entrance of Kokuyo Land. When Yamamoto looks up, and stares at the building, he understands that comfort is the last thing Mukuro is hoping for right now, and so he isn't going to let Yamamoto 'break' him anytime soon.
With this knowledge, the upset guardian leaves.
