Chapter 11 - Tragic Reaper
** I do not own the Saiyuki characters or storyline **
It was late in the evening, the group had stopped for the night since they hadn't come upon a village to sleep in an inn. Gojyo and Goku were flopped all over the back, Rayla had gotten out and sat gently on the hood. She turned as she felt Hakkai wake with a start from his sleep, an owl hooted into the night and a crescent moon dotted the clear sky.
She watched as he put his hands up towards the moon, She quietly got down and went over to him. She reached out her own hands and grasped his bringing his thoughts and eyes met with her own, "Are you alright, Hakkai?"
"It was... a dream?" He clicked in as he focused onto her, he smiled, "Thank you but I'll be alright." He took his hands out of hers and put on his forehead.
She leaned just infront of him, "Your eyes say otherwise." That caught his attention, "I know what that man said but he was wrong, I see nothing but pain of a man, love that is behind that pain. Your a wonderful man, Hakkai."
"Thank you Rayla, It's just something I had forgotten." He got out of the jeep and offered his hand out to her, "Care to join me?" She took his hand and walked a little away from the jeep with him, he held out his hands and in it was the Mahjong piece they had found in the crab Skikigomi.
"Ever since I met that old geezer my past wound has started to ache again!" He confided in her as he closed his hand tightly around the piece, "He obviously blames me for what happened but why does he keep playing games like this and her blood on my hands, I can't allow myself to ever love anyone again."
Rayla's eyes were sympathetic, not cause she felt sorry for him but because she felt the same, "Sometimes it easier that way..." She whispered.
"Now that is one short lifeline..." Their eyes widened for a moment and realized it was Gojyo as he looked over Hakkai's shoulder at his palm, "AH! YOU SCARED ME!" Hakkai yelled as he jumped back holding Rayla to his side.
"Whoa! That should be my line, I can't believe how easy it was to sneak up on you two." Gojyo stated calmly. Hakkai released Rayla and they stood calmly, "Okay dude, So which ones the lifeline?"
*Sweat Drop* "Idiots..." Rayla muttered as they went back to normal.
Gojyo went over and showed Hakkai his lifeline on his palm, "That one right there."
Hakkai lifted his hand up, "Boy your right! It is short!"
"See mine goes all the way down to the wrist, " Gojyo grabbed Rayla's hand and flipped it over, "Damn, your is even shorter."
Hakkai turned and looked at hers, "I don't feel so bad now..."
"Ge, Thanks. Did you wake up just to tell us that?" She snapped at Gojyo.
The wind picked up around them making Rayla's black hair blow in the wind like a curtain on a window, "No, Not really. I just wanted to get a good look at that gloomy face of yours." Rayla hit him upside the head, "Damn it Ray!" It earned a small smile from Hakkai before Gojyo opened his big mouth again, "So the seer, that's what this is about?"
Hakkai lowered his head, "Yes it's... Chin Yisou..."
"Hello!" A high pitched voice said from behind them making them snap in that direction. A small wooden doll walked up to them holding something in it's arms, "Hello! Hello! Hello! Cho Gonou, You will die. You die!"
Rayla pulled out both her blades, "Why.. does that toy call you by your old name?" Gojyo asked out loud confused as well.
The doll stuck out it's wooden hands, between them was another Mahjong piece, "It says 'hate', Chin... Yisou (Sorry if the name's wrong**). "
"Your a very bad man, Cho Gonou, That is why you shall never know peace in this life or another. That is because you are a big fat blasphemer." The doll informed them with a high pitched voice.
Gojyo leaned down at the waist, "Listen here ya little blockhead! Let me remind you that your flammable!"
Rayla snickered only for a moment, "I think I understand what your trying to say..." Hakkai spoke earning all of their attention, "but if you have unfinished business with me, why not come to me face to face like a man!"
The darkness of Hakkai's look made even Rayla concerned, This is going to go very bad...
"Yes. Those are the eyes I know, Show us your true face Cho Gonou." The doll taunted.
Gojyo snapped at the toy, "That's it!" He brought his foot up and punted the doll backwards into the tree, "You should've stayed in your box! Come one Hakkai, Ray! I've had enough of this toy, playtime is over!" Hakkai followed behind Gojyo as Rayla stayed in her spot, staring at the doll. It slowly rotated its head and built up a charged attack similar to 'chi'.
It caught Hakkai's attention but Rayla was already on it, "Gojyo look out!"
The beam was shot but he was knocked to the ground before it pierced his body. Hakkai was stunned, eyes wide as Gojyo looked up in time to catch Rayla as she stumbled backwards.
"Stupid women!" Gojyo cursed as he grabbed her, "Ahahaha! That's what you get!" The doll taunted them even more.
"I'm gonna roast t-that th-thing..." Rayla started before she slumped in Gojyo's arms, "RAY!" Hakkai called out in worry.
"Hakkai! What's happening?" Sanzo called as he ran up the path with Goku and Hakuryuu on his trail.
Hakkai turned and looked at them, "I'm not sure!" He and Gojyo rolled Rayla over onto her back to take a look at her chest. She tried to remain still as she could but the irritation flowed throughout her body.
"Ray-Ray!" Goku called out the panic in his voice as the circled around her. The cut out diamond on her chest allowed them to see what was placed upon her chest. Veins flowed around it as it pulsed and slowly spread throughout her upper body. Sweat poured down her face and chest as she grounded her teeth to keep from crying out.
"G-Get i-it o-o-out!" She managed to spit out, "GET IT OUT OF ME!" She cried out as Gojyo tried what he could to hold her still.
"W-What's happening to her!" Goku asked as they all swarmed around her, "I don't know..." Sanzo answered but the concern was obvious in his face.
"It's a seed! A living seed taking root in her veins that lives on blood, She's a goner!" The doll informed them with it's high voice. If it was possible for a doll to feel emotions this one enjoyed screwing with people Rayla thought to herself despite the pain she felt of something invading her body.
They all turned to look at them doll lying against the tree, "Who the hell is the midget?"
"One of Chin Yisou's messengers." Hakkai told them the anger seeping into his voice as he still observed Rayla who was being held by Gojyo.
Sanzo's handsome face turned into a scowl at the mention of the name, "Not him again!"
"Tick, Tock, Tick, Tock! Clock is ticking, Not much time to save your friend! The seed is very snugly next to her heart! What will you do Cho Gonou, What will you do?" The doll continued to egg them on not knowing the rest of the party very well.
Sanzo wore a slight smirk on his face, "Enough. What is it that you want?" He questioned.
"Aahahahahaha! Bloods fun! I really like this game, Let's play again real soon, Cho Gonou! I-" *BANG!*
Sanzo's revolver smoked as he blasted the dolls heads to pieces sick of listening to it much like how Rayla felt. She tried to remain still but the issue became far more difficult as the seed and her bloodline fought each other inside her body. The veins flowed down her arms and down her stomach onto her legs, that weren't visible.
"So that's what this is about, You know for a puppet he has quite a sense of humor." *Irk Mark* A sick fucking sense of humor! She wanted to scream at Sanzo.
"Sanzo..." Hakkai said uneasy knowing it was Rayla that had been the one to suffer that attack had to be getting to him as it was the others.
Sanzo cocked his gun again, "Goku hold onto Rayla's arms."
"What? Uh Ok." He agreed unsure before going over tot he other two and doing as he was told.
Sanzo turned around, "Are you happy now old man? Isn't this what you wanted?" He demanded before pointing his gun at Rayla's chest.
"Sanzo! What are doing?" Goku demanded fearful for her.
Gojyo's and Hakkai's eyes widened as they watched, "Hakkai, get ready to close Rayla's wound."
"Are you nuts? The target is to small and too close the the heart, You'll kill her!" Hakkai informed him his voice slightly cracking.
Gojyo ground his teeth as he helped Goku with his task knowing her strength could surpass them both. The comment made Sanzo annoyed, "Then I guess I shouldn't miss... I have good aim, if she dies it's because she has a weak heart and I know she doesn't."
"A-Arrogent as-asshole!" She managed to spit out though it had no bite to it.
Sanzo looked at her, his eyes confident and sure, "You better close your lovely lips or you might... bite your tongue!"
She cried out as blood came from her mouth, she passed out from the shock as Hakkai began heal her wound repeating 'Don't die on us' over and over again.
Gojyo held her hand tightly, "Why did you step in the way... Damn it Ray!" Gojyo demanded as he watched not being able to help her at all.
"I think I've closed the wound. She's still unconscious but her heart beat is still strong." Hakkai told them as he watched her now sleeping face.
Goku was doing the same but it seemed to pain him to look at her this way, "At least one of us is..."
"Rayla..." Gojyo whispered quietly, he couldn't wrap his head around why she did it? Why did she take the shot for him?
Hakkai's guilt was sinking in as well, "This is all my fault, isn't it? I seem to be the one Chin Yisou wants so badly-"
"That's enough." Sanzo stopped him with a sharp tongue.
"It's not! Look at her!"
"You listen to me-"
Sanzo grabbed Hakkai by the collar of his shirt, "NOW COOL IT! If you lose it now that will be exactly what Chin Yisou wants you to do!"
That made Hakkai stop before he suddenly fell backwards, Sanzo caught him as Goku and Gojyo stand up, "Quickly! Get water!" Sanzo yelled at Goku.
"Right away! Com on Hakuryuu!" Goku relied and ran off with the little dragon behind him, "Kyyyuuuu!"
Sanzo looked back at Hakkai's face as Gojyo went back to checking on Rayla, I was wondering why you haven't been getting much sleep lately friend. Some how I get the feeling we've been playing right along Chin Yisou's script. He used the seed knowing Rayla would protect who ever it was aimed at, then it was placed beside her heart knowing I would shoot her infront of you. I don't know why he hates you but it's obvious that geezer doesn't want you dead. He has something much worse in store for you, He wants to destroy your spirit, He wants to make you suffer.
Rayla was started to feel better as she remember meeting Hakkai for the first time, He hardly looked her in the eye and tended to avoid her. It eventually got on her nerves and when she went with Sanzo to escort him to the Three Aspects she confronted him. She had been temporarily posted as his guard, she went to him and made him look her in the eye. That's when she truly saw the pain in his eyes, the suffering and agony he had gone through. He ended up breaking down and telling her his story, She understood his pain and ended up comforting him. He wasn't looking for love from another women or anything in that way. He needed a friend, someone who understood his pain.
The pain of having someone you love sacrificed before your very eyes and not being able to stop it from happening. Human's are always willing to give up someone else's life in order to save their own ass.
Each of them have suffered in someway, she hadn't shared her past with any of them really, nor had they ever really asked. She doubted it really made a difference now, She had to protect Gojyo. She couldn't allow pain to come to any of them, the fact they had been abused so much through their lives made her risk her own life for them every time.
It was her choice and her vow.
Hakkai began to open his eyes and he stared at his own hand, "You awake?" Sanzo asked earning Hakkai's attention as he looked over.
"Where am I?" Hakkai asked slightly disoriented.
Sanzo sat against the cave wall they were currently residing in with his legs crossed, reading the paper as usual. Hakkai was lying on the ground with a green blanket over him, before slightly sat up.
"Were still in the forest. You slept half the day away."
"Do you have any idea who that damned fortune teller is?" Sanzo asked Hakkai.
"No but he knows about my past."
"And your old name too." Sanzo so kindly pointed out.
Hakkai hung his head slightly, "Yes and apparently he sure can hold a grudge."
"You know I've heard there are survivors of Gakugan Maoh's old clan my friend."
Hakkai placed both hands on his fore-head, "Gakugan Maoh, I thought for sure I had killed every last one of those monsters."
"You should... have made sure." Sanzo told him taking his glasses off.
A new voice caught both their attention, "Funny thing for a monk to say." Gojyo said leaning against the cave wall with Rayla leaning on him.
"He's only a monk by title..." She muttered still using Gojyo for support.
"No luck?" Sanzo asked Gojyo ignoring Rayla's comment.
Gojyo sat Rayla down beside Hakkai before shrugging slightly, "Nah, the fogs way to thick. I can't seem to find them anywhere."
"What is it? Goku? Did something happen to Goku?" Hakkai asked as he wrapped a gentle arm around Ray.
The two other men looked at Hakkai as Ray scowled, "He disappeared..." Rayla told him as she stood on her with a grunt, "I can find him..." She said before walking towards the entrance.
Gojyo grabbed her and pulled her against his own chest, "You aren't going anywhere without one of us." He told her with a smirk making a slight blush come to her cheeks. She used her bangs to cover her face, she could still her the slight grinding of teeth from Sanzo's direction.
"We haven't seen him since he went to fetch some water after you collapsed." Sanzo finished telling Hakkai as he tried to stand up. Gojyo used a hand to hold him down while still clinging to Rayla with the other arm.
"You stay right here! Your the one that the bastard wants!" Gojyo told him getting slightly in his face. Rayla removed herself from his hold and sat beside Hakkai again, "So you just expect me to just sit here while people get hurt because of me? Rayla already suffered because she tried to keep us safe!" He looked at the women sitting beside him, "I'm so sor-" She pressed a finger to his lips to shut him up.
"It's not your fault, I made my own choice. Besides Sanzo would have taken far to much joy in shooting Gojyo..." She said with a small smile.
Sanzo interrupted, "Ever heard of the saying, Embrace nothing. If you meet the Buddha, Kill the Buddha. If you meet your father, Kill your father. Only live your life as it is, not bound to anything. That is what my Master taught me." He turned around to look at them, "That's the reason I continue to kill everyone who stands in my way and it doesn't matter who's enemy they happen to be. Now if you understand that then get a hold of yourself. I don't need any excess baggage."
"Got it." Hakkai agreed bowing his head as a small pebble was flung at Sanzo nailing him in the fore-head.
They looked at Rayla as she glared, "Your such an asshole! Logical but still an asshole!"That earned the chuckle from Hakkai she had been looking for.
"So, What are you gonna do?" Gojyo asked Sanzo as they stood outside the entrance with a smoke in each of their mouths. Rayla stayed with Hakkai who had his head in her lap as she tried to coax him into getting more sleep.
"About what?" Sanzo asked slightly confused.
Gojyo became annoyed by his ignorance, "About the monkey man! The monkey!"
"The fog isn't lifting and still no sign of Goku. We can't get a break."
"You know I can't help but feel were playing according to someone else's script and I don't like it! Ray's gonna be out for a bit, Goku hasn't been found and Hakkai is... well it's obvious." Gojyo stated as he grabbed his last smoke from his pack.
Sanzo couldn't agree more, "If he gets anyone of us he wins."
Gojyo crushed his now empty pack, "I ain't dyin and I tell ya, I super hate to lose."
"Don't say super."
"What should I say? Hella hate?"
A rustling behind them caught their attention as they snapped their heads in the direction it came from, "Oh there you are!"
Goku came running out from the bushes without Hakuryuu with him, "I thought I got left behind!"
"Goku?" Sanzo questioned looking at him.
Gojyo walked past Sanzo and over to Goku, "You stupid monkey!"
"Huh?" Gojyo grabbed him and slung one of Goku's arms over his own shoulders shoving him and hanging positions into uncomfortable holds.
"Where have you been?" Gojyo demanded as he continued doing his own punishment, "I was looking for water!" Goku tried to defend himself.
Hakkai walked out of the cave with Rayla right beside him, "Goku?" Hakkai questioned, "Your alright!" He called happily as he went to run towards him.
"Hakkai!" Goku said sitting on the ground as Hakkai ran up to him and knelled down infront of him.
"Oh good! Don't you ever make us worry like that again, you hear me?" Hakkai told him.
Rayla looked at Sanzo feeling that something was off just as he was, Where is Hakuryuu? She thought to herself noted the silver dragon wasn't by any of their sides.
"Sanzo..." Rayla whispered to him before he nodded his head already knowing what she was thinking as he used his own bangs to cover his face for a moment.
"Where's Hakuryuu?" Sanzo asked the very questioned Rayla had been thinking.
Goku ran up to Sanzo with a similar innocent face, "Oh, sorry. I must of lost him on the way. Don't worry I'm sure we'll find him when the fog lifts." Goku lugged on Sanzo's sleeve, "Now come on! let's get out this creepy forest."
Goku walked past them, he didn't even say a word to Rayla nor looked at her, "Goku." Sanzo said his name making him stop just near her.
Sanzo pointed his silver revolver at Goku, he cocked the gun making all of the others eyes widen except for Rayla. Her bangs covered her eyes unable to see the situation knowing what might happen if they were wrong, "S-Sanzo...? What's gotten into you?" Goku asked him fearful at the gun pointed at his for-head.
"S-Sanzo? Rayla, stop him!" Hakkai whispered worried about his companions, he looked at Rayla noticing how she was acting making him question weather or not to intervene.
Gojyo felt the same as he did, "What are you doing man?"
"S-S-Sanzo? Come one, Sanzo!" Goku said again trying to get a straight answer.
Sanzo wasn't fazed as he held his gun out and ready to fire, "SANZO! W-What are you doing Sanzo?" Goku demanded.
The situation dragged on as the stare down began, "Who ever you are, you sure as hell ain't no monkey!"
"It's me Sanzo!"
"Is that so? Then let's see if the little chimp... can do a back flip!" *BANG!*
Sanzo fired his gun shooting Goku and knocking him right back to the ground, the wind blew as Sanzo's face was annoyed. The body of the fake Goku made the others realize what Sanzo and Rayla had figured out. It was another Shikigomi and not the real Goku.
Hakkai and Gojyo were no longer surprised, "Come on out Chin Yisou! You've made Mommy and Daddy awfully angry." Gojyo called out to their enemy while throwing the usual insult at Rayla and Sanzo.
The tree rustled before a familiar chuckle caught their attention, "That was one of my best puppets too." Rayla picked up the Mahjong piece that said 'monkey' on it, "So tell me where did I go wrong?" Chin Yisou asked with a hint of sarcasm.
"Should have done your homework. Rayla's his pride and joy!" Gojyo said with a casual stance and smirk on his handsome face. *Irk Mark*
"I'm not a toy!" She growled out.
Sanzo pointed his gun again, "Yeah and he didn't say 'I'm hungry' once."
"Ahaha. 'I'm Hungry' and a women? Was that all it was? Well who would have thunk it!" Chin Yisou said sitting casually on top of a rock in front of them.
Rayla had all she could take, "What the hell have you done with Goku!" She demanded pulling out both her Katana's.
"Well now. Fond of him aren't you? Where do you think he is? Perhaps he's simply wandering around the forest in the fog. Then again..."
Sanzo fired off a warning shot only inches from Chin Yisou's foot, "I won't miss next time! Now where is he?" Sanzo demanded, his patience growing shorter by the second.
"My, My aren't we impatient. Are you sure you getting enough calcium? Why don't you just put a bullet in me now? That is..." Chin Yisou snapped his fingers, "If you can."
Bugs swarmed around them in a large mass, "Ah Shit!" Gojyo cursed. Rayla stood beside Hakkai utterly grossed out, "Centipede's...?" Hakkai questioned aloud as he looked at Ray's beautiful face that was twisted in disgust. Thousands of the creatures crawled up their legs and onto their bodies.
"Gakugan Maoh was the centipede demon. Don't move to much now or they'll bite." Chin Yisou taunted as he walked up to them, past Sanzo, past Gojyo, "That poison could cost you your life! Even for you..." He put a clawed hand on Hakkai's face lifting his face.
"Don't touch him!" Rayla spat out trying to remain still.
Chin Yisou gave a dirty smirk before looking at Hakkai again, "Such a lovely companion you have, Cho Gonou." Hakkai ground his teeth to keep from moving, "Are you angry? Take a good long look at the son of he man who raped and impregnated your women! Think back!"
Rayla watched Hakkai's face as it became stunned thinking back to the painful memory that brought him to where he is now. She knew his past and pain he felt but there was nothing she could do to make it stop. To make the nightmares and scars from re-opening.
I can hear the rain drumming in my ears, The drumming is so loud! It's driving me crazy... Someone... Kill... me...
"Did you kill my entire clan out fo revenge?" Chin Yisou asked before slapping Hakkai, "Did you or was it *slap* some misguided *slap* sense of justice *slap* I do not dislike your almost admirable *kick to the gut* killer instinct but only your utter disgrace and humiliation can comfort my soul."
"Hakkai!" Rayla called out to him.
Sanzo became annoyed, "Please not another word. You are boring me to death. Instead how about I tell you two of the three things I hate the most."
"Sure that could be amusing."
"Psycho's and worms! SCRIPTURE REPEL!" Sanzo said as the Matan scripture blew the worms away and destroyed them at the same time. Chin Yisou cried out the scripture managed to catch him slightly as well, he tried to shield himself and moved further away as possible.
Gojyo wasn't going to allow that how ever as his staff's end caught Chin Yisou and knocked him tot he ground only a foot away from them, "You know what? You really made me angry. Who would have thought and I'm usually so laid back too but you don't mess with a beautiful lady and get away with it." Gojyo said with a wink in Rayla's direction making her sigh before she went over to Hakkai.
"So... How are you feeling?" Sanzo asked him as Rayla went to his side.
Sweat poured down his face that was twisted in agony from the painful memories, "Hakkai... is that-"
Gojyo grabbed his shoulder before he could finish, "Hey! Get a grip! You are Cho Hakkai!"
"Huh?" He looked a Rayla who nodded her head in agreement, "Your right." A hand reached out for Gojyo but yet again knocked him down as she became the target. Chin Yisou grabbed her around the throat and pulled her away from Hakkai's side.
His hand tightened around her throat, "Nice little trick you have there."
"Bastard!" Sanzo spat with his gun drawn.
Gojyo was annoyed she had stepped in again, "Damn Rayla! Stop doing that!" He said to her with his weapon ready.
"Again with the gun, will you at least aim for the chest this time?" He taunted as he tightened his grip more trying to make her cry out, "D-Don't listen Hakkai" Rayla managed to get out as Hakkai remembered not even a few hours ago that she had been shot.
A battle cry caught all of their attention as they looked up to find Goku coming straight a Chin Yisou with Nyoi-bo ready. Chin Yisou jumped to avoid the attack and threw Rayla towards Gojyo who caught her.
"Sorry... I'm late." Goku said peeking over his arm.
"Goku!" Hakkai and Rayla cried out together.
Rayla ran straight to his side and help him against her chest, "I was so worried! You ever do that to me again and you will learn the meaning of scary damn it! Are you alright? Did that moron hurt you at all cause I will kill him!" Rayla ranted out in one big breath.
"What took you so long?" Gojyo demanded as he went to stomp on Goku but found his foot grabbed by Rayla and shoved back. She cradled her arms around him protectively and he smiled in a taunting way a Gojyo, "Come on give me a break! My legs broken!"
"WHAT!" Rayla cried furious, "And I'm hungry! It's awful!" Goku said pouting and leaning on Rayla's chest. Hakuryuu flew down and land on her shoulders with a quiet 'kyu' concerned for Goku.
Goku stomach growled and the others smiled, "Oh yeah that's him." Gojyo confirmed.
"There can be absolutely no doubt about that!" Hakkai agreed.
Sanzo walked up tot he two of them sitting on the ground, "Hey there."
"You dumb stupid monkey!" Sanzo glared at him pulling out his 'old man fan' and smacked him as hard as he could knocking him back which knocked Rayla back as well.
"What the hell was that for?" They demanded at the same time sitting up.
Sanzo crossed his arms over his chest, "What?"
"What? What do you mean what? You big mean dumb ass! You knocked Ray-Ray over too!" Goku stated annoyed but still holding his head where Sanzo had hit him. She smiled at the two of them fondly before realizing the others were watching.
"Why doesn't he just say he's relived to see him?" Gojyo asked no one in particular.
The dark chuckle caught their attentions again thought this time they were all far more annoyed and angry than anything else.
"Well look. My arm it's all shattered." Chin Yisou said but clearly hardly cared at all as he held his right arm at the shoulder.
"Ah shit. Doesn't this guy feel any pain?" Gojyo asked.
"Believe me I'm in enough agony watching this sappy little reunion." His eyes focused on Rayla who was holding Goku up, "It actually makes the bile rise in my stomach."
"So he finally shows himself."
"Sanzo, Something is close here, he just doesn't seem alive to me." Goku told them looking around Rayla's chest to look at the others.
Gojyo leaned slightly forward to look at both her chest and Goku, "What are you getting at?"
"I really walloped him but he acts like nothings wrong at all."
"So are you saying he's some kind of ghost?"
That's it! I remember, I saw him that night. I killed this man before! I'm sure of it! Hakkai thought to himself as he looked at his hands. The comments and Hakkai's reaction made Rayla think, Perhaps he is one of his own Shikigomi?
"That's enough getting to know you. I gave this some thought and as you can see I knew there was one way I could make you suffer the most. That would be to make your friends suffer for your misdeeds." Chin Yisou told them with a twisted smile.
Goku didn't like that comment at all, "Hey! That's really low!"
Chin Yisou readied an attack again, "Oh please. You flatter me." His attack barely touched them as it landed infront of Gojyo and Goku, "I admit the beautiful young women and the golden eyed boy have been a real barrel of laughs. Stay sharp!" He threw more at Sanzo who merely caught them all between his fingers before dropping them to the ground.
"Because next time, he really is going to lose some of his little play buddies. "
"You just try it." Sanzo said with a glare as they all faced off against the twisted demon from Hakkai's past.
