Alright! New chapter!
Thank you KosmicKhaos for reviewing!
Hope everyone enjoys the chapter!
The next morning my fox woke me up at an ungodly hour, well before sunrise, saying something about finding Hiei. After jumping from tree to tree we finally spotted the fire apparition obviously in pain from using the dragon of the darkness flame:
"Is this wise Hiei?"
"What do you mean?"
"It won't be easy to keep winning without the use of your dominant hand. Perhaps you should withdraw."
"Ha, you heard what Toguro said, we don't have a choice."
Sensing a couple of demons headed our way Kurama and I jumped down from the tree we were in.
"If we don't make it threw this tournament, he will kill us all. Fighting is our only way out."
"Seems the doctors team has gotten lost."
"Yes, what a horrible coincidence for us both."
Glaring at the two strange demons in front of us, they looked like lizards, but they were yellow, and had messed up teeth. With a sick smirk, the two demons rushed at us. Before I could grab for a weapon one of the demons had grabbed me, and was holding some sort of blade to my throat. Growling I tried to reach for a seed, with a sick chuckle the demon pressed the blade into my neck, creating a small trail of blood.
Sighing I watched as Hiei and Kurama chopped the other demon into little pieces.
"What the hell?"
"Heh, and that was using my left arm Kurama."
"I'm sorry, I used my right, next time I'll use my left to be fair."
"Would you like to try us next? Or just hand the fox back over?"
The lizard laughed at Hiei for a moment.
"Thanks but, I'd rather not, death gives me the shivers. And I rather like the female."
I growled as he pulled out a remote, hitting a button, never loosing his grip on me.
Hearing something move, I looked to my right to see some sort of machine appear out of the trees.
"Catasoble is what we like to call him, the doctor's earlier experiment, part demon, mostly machine, it feels no pain and no fear, now destroy those two low lives."
I growled as I watched Hiei try to slice threw the machine, ignoring the demon holding me hostage, I watched in horror as the machine pinned Hiei to a tree. All of a sudden I felt a clawed hand scratch at my chest, glaring at the lizard demon, I attempted to fight back, only succeeding in getting another cut across my collar bone, and a clawed hand to grip painfully onto my breast, cutting into the center of my chest, making me let out a low whimper, knowing only the two demons fighting the machine would recognize the sound.
Looking up I realized Kurama had killed the machine and was glaring at the demon holding me.
"You're robot is dead, and so are you."
With a growl he tossed me to the side, trying to escape, only to be stopped by Hiei.
You ok Abby?
I will be.
Walking over Kurama placed a hand over my throat, checking for any permanent damage, ghosting his hand over where the demon had held me, he sighed in relief, handing me a purple seed.
With a nod, I swallowed the seed without further question.
Shaking I got to my feet, slowly making my way over to where Hiei was punching the demon. Pulling out my sword, I held it to the sorry lizard's throat.
"Now, you sorry excuse for a demon, you tell us what you know about that doctor and I might think twice about killing you."
Turning pale the demon quickly told us everything he knew, with a growl I made the demon lead us to the man the doctor had poisoned, after two miles we came across a cave.
"Hiei? Watch this thing for me, so Kurama and I can check on the man."
With a grin he stood in front of the guy, following Kurama into the cave we examined him.
"I can heal him."
"Do we have the right plants?"
"We passed them on the way."
I nodded as I helped the weaken man onto Kurama's back. Walking out of the cave I wasn't surprised to see that the lizard demon had more bruises and was missing a couple more teeth.
Should I ask Hiei?
You're just lucky he isn't dead yet
I smirked at him, explaining we needed to head back to the arena.
After reaching the side of the arena Kurama and Hiei knocked the machine into the arena, with a grin I pulled my sword out again, turning to the lizard demon, I swung the sword and sliced threw his neck, killing him instantly. With a growl I tossed the worthless demon over the wall, quickly we walked into the arena. Sitting on the machine I watched as the masked fighter preformed the spirit wave, ejecting something from the three fighter's backs. After it was announced that we had won I growled as the doctor transformed into a giant demon with limbs that stretched out. Sliding off the machine I walked over to the team as Yusuke shot the demon with his spirit gun.
Before I could say anything there was an announcement saying that we were moving on to the next fight.
Before all hell broke lose a tornado formed reviling a five member team, all dressed to keep their identities hidden.
This team MOSHO , was going to be a problem.
Hearing a grunt I turned to see Botan carrying Kuwabara into the ring, quickly walking over I started to heal him. Watching as Jin made himself known. I had heard of him, but never got the chance to meet the wind master that towered over Yusuke.
"May I have your attention please; the tournament committee will be using a medical examination before the next round."
I turned to Botan with a curious look.
Spotting the nurse I growled, she was way too sexy to be working as a nurse.
"I don't like her."
"Medic my ass, if all she is curious about is Hiei and the masked fighter and not Kuwabara, she's an idiot."
Keeping my hands hovering over Kuwabara's chest, watching as Hiei and the fighter were blocked by a force field. Growling again as the 'nurse' reviled herself to be an entrantrest wearing wires. Hearing the committee announce that Hiei and the fighter were unfit to fight.
I sighed, concentrating on Kuwabara's wounds again.
Feeling a hand on my shoulder, I looked at Botan.
"Give yourself a break Abby; you're too weak to heal him, not without running out of energy yourself."
I nodded, leaning against the wall I watched Kurama take on Gama. Shaking my head as the pale demon covered him self with make up. Smiling as Kurama dodged blow after blow. Tilting my head to the side when I spotted the black mark on Kurama's leg, making it hard for him to move.
Sharing a look with Botan we both knew I wouldn't be able to heal him, growling as Kurama was marked with the stupid makeup. Letting out a little cheer when Kurama, attacked Gama with his rose whip that was wound threw his hair.
"I need to learn that move."
Botan laughed as Kurama retracted his whip. Tilting my head in confusion as Gama kept spilling his blood on Kurama, finally it dawned on me, Gama's makeup was made of his blood. Spreading out my scenes I realized that Kurama's energy was sealed.
"Can you get rid of that?"
"I really don't know."
I watched as the ice master Touya stepped into the ring.
Pushing off the wall I walked over to Yusuke, knowing Kurama will be in pain by the time this fight ends.
Feeling my tail and ears bristle, I waited for the match to start.
The ninja are revolting.
Sounds like it.
Nodding at Hiei, I watched as the arena became freezing cold.
Keeping my eyes trained on the fighters, as Touya hit Kurama with the same attack, forcing Kurama on his back. Breathing a sigh of relief when Kurama stood up, I growled when Kurama tried to use his rose whip but it obviously caused him pain to do so.
"What are you thinking Abby?"
Concentrating on my energy, I formed a small purple ball in my hand; just enough to jump start Kurama's energy. Just as Touya was about to attack Kurama with a sword I threw my energy at him, just as Kurama landed on the ground my energy entered his body threw his cuts. Feeling a little weak, I continued to watch the fight, grinning when Kurama forced the death seed to impale Touya.
"I'm glad that worked."
"Can you take that plant out?"
"Yes, I'll need time, but I can take it out."
I sighed as we officially won the match, before I could hop onstage to retrieve the knocked out Kurama, the next fighter, walked up, stating he was going to fight the fox. Knocking him off his feet, growling Yusuke had to grab me from jumping in the ring, as the fighter continued to punch and kicked Kurama.
"Let me go Yusuke!"
"If you enter the ring we will be disqualified and everything would have been for nothing."
Shrugging him off, I continued to watch the fight, if that's what you could call it, the fighter knocked Koto out of the ring, grabbing Kurama by the collar he was about to land another punch.
Both Yusuke and I had our spirit guns ready to fire, mine glowing a light red while Yusuke's was blue.
Lowering my gun as the fighter threw Kurama to our side of the ring, rushing over to him; I placed his head in my lap, gently running my fingers over his face, checking his injuries. Glancing at Yusuke, before he entered the ring.
"Yusuke. Kill him."
He nodded, as I set about healing the fox.
Hearing the fighter who nearly beat Kurama to death scream and a mist covered the arena, closing my eyes, I focused on the task at hand, prioritizing his wounds. The smaller ones healing almost instantly, as I worked on the bones that had been broken, I was thankful for my energy returning when Kurama was knocked out. Opening my eyes I heard the count of ten announcing that our team had officially won that round. Hearing footsteps I spotted Yusuke walking over to us, bending next to me he looked at Kurama and back at me.
"How's he doing?"
"I'll survive. Sorry I couldn't finish the first three of em like I planned."
I grinned at the fox, realizing he had been awake for a few minutes.
"Win this match for us Yusuke."
Turning my gaze to the fox, I laughed at the innocent look he gave me.
"How long have you been awake?"
"I heard the last of Yusuke's battle, you know your ears lay flat against your head when you're healing someone?"
"I didn't know that."
I smiled as I helped him move to the outer wall to watch the fight, just as Jin landed a good punch to Yusuke's face.
Gently placing my hand on Kurama's chest above his heart, I transferred more of my energy into him, hoping the extra energy would give him a boost.
Nodding at me, I felt myself become light headed.
"You need it more than me."
"You're barely awake."
With a nod, I aloud my eyes to close, feeling a soft hand at the base of my ear, slowly rubbing circles, causing me to nod off to regain some of my energy.
Waking up I came face to face with a patch of red hair, looking up I smiled at the green eyes looking down at me.
"Cool, where are we going?"
"Can you put me down?"
Hearing a chuckle, I tilted my head to see a smirking Hiei.
"Shut up Hiei."
Whipping Kurama with my tail, I laughed as I was unceremoniously dropped onto the couch.
"Fine, you can sleep alone tonight."
