I don't own Yami No Matsuei, no matter how much I wish I did.
This is the last chapter of The Breaking. I wasn't sure whether or not to make it two more chapters or just one, but decided to go with one long chapter. You can think of it as the last chapter and Epilogue if you want. I hope you enjoy it. -Kaouri18
Tsuzuki awoke before Hisoka. He gazed down at his young lover and couldn't help but smile at all that has happened- well, maybe not all, but you get the point. Tsuzuki tightened his embrace on him. Last night seemed like a dream, it was so perfect. Yet unlike a dream, he awoke to see a naked Hisoka, so apparently it all wasn't a dream.
After everything that had happened, Hisoka had survived, he is still the person he was, but changed in a few ways. These particular ways involved being more open, which made Tsuzuki happy.
Hisoka stirred, causing Tsuzuki to come out of his thoughts. Tsuzuki couldn't help but think that Hisoka was an angel, an angel sent to stay with him, to protect him. And he intern must protect his angel and not let anything happen to him again. He was never going to let Hisoka be hurt again, a least if he could prevent it.
Hisoka tightened his grip on Tsuzuki and slowly opened his eyes. Seeing Hisoka slowly open his eyes, one at a time was sooo cute that Tsuzuki could help but lean down and give his Hisoka a soft kiss to his forehead.
"Morning Angel." Tsuzuki said softly.
Hisoka looked up at Tsuzuki a little confused. "What did you call me?" he asked.
"Angel. You're my angel and I won't let you go." He said, tightening his hold on Hisoka.
Hisoka blushed; he had never been called something like that before. "I'm not an angel Tsuzuki."
"Yes you are. You're my angel. You've been watching over me and protecting me, therefore you must be an angel." Tsuzuki replied.
Hisoka didn't have it in him to argue about this with Tsuzuki, so he decided to let it go, this time.
"We better get back to the infirmary. We kind of left without telling anyone." Hisoka said.
"But Soka…! It's so nice right here!" Tsuzuki wined.
"Asato…. We need to go back, just for a little while alright?"
"Only for a little while, I don't feel like sharing today." Tsuzuki said.
"Sharing what?" Hisoka asked, completely confused.
"You!" Tsuzuki said with a smile.
Hisoka turned a deeper shade of red that Tsuzuki thought was impossible.
With a little more insisting on Hisoka's part, they left Tsuzuki's apartment and they both teleported into the infirmary.
"Tsuzuki where is everyone?" Hisoka asked, once they arrived, and noticed that no one was there.
"If I had to guess, I'd say they're in Tatsumi's office." Tsuzuki replied.
So, they headed to Tatsumi's office.
Tsuzuki was the one to open the door upon reaching the office. As Tsuzuki opened it, they were greeted by a rather unusual sight.
Tatsumi and Ryu were having a normal conversation, or so it seemed. At the same time they were watching Watari and Kuri. Watari and Kuri were playing a game of cards. Based upon the fact that they were both half-naked, actually Watari was almost completely naked; Tsuzuki would say it was a game of strip poker. If one were to go by the look on Kuri's face, they would say that she was about to have Watari completely naked.
"Ummm….hey." Was all Tsuzuki could get out. All of them then looked at the door, as if they had no idea who they were. Kuri was the first to react.
"Tsuzuki!" Kuri yelled as she ran to embrace him.
"Kuri, hey you feeling alright?" he asked.
"Of course! Just beaten Watari in strip poker. Hisoka!" she yelled and embraced him as well.
Hisoka just looked at Tsuzuki rather confused. Tsuzuki smiled at him, as Kuri pulled away.
"I'm so glad you're alright. You had us all really worried." She said.
"Who are you exactly?" Hisoka asked.
"Oh right, my name's Kuri Kojo, just call me Kuri. This is my partner Ryu, you can call him Ryu." She said, pointing to Ryu, who nodded in response.
"I'm Hisoka… you were in my mind, and… were at the restaurant." He said.
"Yep, that was me." She said with a smile.
Hisoka looked at her. He couldn't figure her out she was more happy and cheerful than Tsuzuki but he couldn't feel anything from her.
"Kuri?" he asked.
"Can I speak with you for a moment alone?" he said, there was something bothering him.
"Sure." She replied and they exited the room.
"Don't worry Tsuzuki, she's not going to steal your new boyfriend him away from you." Watari said with a smile.
"I know that!" Tsuzuki replied defensively. "I just wonder what Hisoka wanted to talk with her about."
"Who knows, who knows…" Watari replied.
A little ways down the hallway…
"Hey, so what was it you wanted to talk to me about Hisoka?" Kuri asked.
"How did you get into my mind?" he asked, a little suspiciously.
"I'm sorry that I intruded in your mind like that Hisoka, but it was the only way to get you out of there. I'm a bit of a telepath and the mind is my specialty, so it wasn't too hard to get into your mind. Forgive me if you angry about it." She said, very seriously.
"It's not that at all. I'm not angry at you. Did you tell anyone what you saw in there?"
"Of course not! I would never say what I see when I'm in someone's mind." She replied.
"What did you see?" he asked.
Kuri froze. She never wanted to be asked this question. After a moment of silence she replied "Everything…" in a soft whisper.
"What?" Hisoka asked, he hadn't really caught what she had said.
"I saw everything. Everything Hisoka. I didn't mean to do it, but with the condition your mind was in, it happened. I wasn't expecting to see everything Hisoka. I'm sorry." She said sadly.
Hisoka froze. This girl, who he barely knew, knew everything about him. Yet, she didn't tell anyone, and didn't seem to be acting any different.
"Why did you come here? Tsuzuki said you came to help him. But why? Why would you help someone you didn't even know? I saw you at the Kokakuro, why did you do that?" He asked.
Kuri let a small smile grace her lips. "Tsuzuki asked me the same thing." She said, looking at Hisoka.
"What did you tell him?"
"I told him I did it because you two love each other. I know that, it's evident, especially to someone like me."
"That doesn't make any sense. You would risk your life for that reason?" he asked shocked.
"It's just the way I am." She said with a smile.
Hisoka didn't know what to say. "So you help people because they are in love, by making plans and helping execute them in anyway you can? Tsuzuki mentioned this, but I don't understand it. Is that true?"
"That's about right, yes." She replied.
"Then would you help me?" he asked a little unsure of himself. He was opening himself up to someone he barely knew, but he felt as if he could trust her after everything that had happened.
Kuri was confused. "What do you mean?" she asked.
"With Muraki, would you…"
"No." she interrupted.
"What? But you just said."
"No. I cannot help you there." She said.
"But why not? You helped Tsuzuki?"
"Things were different. He wanted to face Muraki out of his love for you, no other reason. You want revenge and retribution."
"I want to be free of him." Hisoka said defensively.
"I understand that, but I cannot help you there. The only person who can help you face Muraki is Tsuzuki."
Hisoka was surprised. "What are you talking about?"
"I cannot face Muraki, at least not yet… There wouldn't be a point anyway. My abilities wouldn't be a match for him a second time, besides Tsuzuki is with you, that's all you need."
"Kuri…What do you mean.."
"Someone who is willing to fight for you, to die for you- Hisoka you have that. Don't ever loose it." She said, with a faint smile, she was rambling and she knew it, but she couldn't seem to stop herself.
Hisoka was confused but decided to act like nothing was strange. Obviously this girl wasn't completely right in the head, but honestly how many of them are?
"Alright. I understand, and thank you for helping me and Tsuzuki. I don't think he would have made it through this without you. So thank you." He said after a moment.
"No problem and if you ever need me again, just call. Now we better get back to the others."
Hisoka nodded as they began to walk back towards the office.
"By the way Hisoka… where were you two?" she said looking at Hisoka with a smile.
Hisoka blushed and looked away. Kuri smiled to herself and stopped before the office door. Together they entered the office.
"Hey! We're back!" Kuri yelled as she and Hisoka entered the room.
Ryu and Tsuzuki were sitting together having a talk with Watari and Tatsumi. Kuri and Hisoka both didn't want to know what it was about, especially with the blushing that was currently occuring on Tsuzuki's face.
"Hey. Welcome back!" Watari yelled.
Kuri and Hisoka made their way over to the group and sat down as well.
"We were just discussing relationships." Watari said with a smirk. "Care to join in."
"That's alright. We'll let you finish what you were all talking about." Hisoka said, a little uneased by the look on Watari's face.
"Alright… You two are no fun." He said turning to Kuri. "By the way, I've been meaning to ask you both this but,… Are you two married?" Watari asked.
"No. Why do you ask?" Ryu said, he was caught completely off guard. Where did a question like that come from?
"What! You've been partners for twenty some years and been in love for a long time and yet you're not married!" Tsuzuki said.
Ryu and Kuri shook their heads.
"Why?" was Hisoka's question.
Kuri looked at Ryu for an answer. Ryu then replied. "We've been together for so long that it didn't really seem to matter to us. Being with the other person was enough, at least for us. We just never got around to it, and after as many years as we've been together it didn't seem important. I love Kuri and that's all that matters to me."
"Ryu…" Kuri said, tearing.
Ryu looked down at her and smiled. Most of the people in the room were shocked, except for Tsuzuki that is. They had never seen Ryu like this, so it was very surprising.
What really surprised them was Ryu leaning down and kissing Kuri. The kiss became hot and passionate.
"Hey…" Tatsumi said.
Ryu and Kuri continued to kiss.
"Hey!" Tatsumi yelled. They both stopped. Kuri pulled away a little, but Ryu put his arm around her waist, causing her to blush. They seemed rather embaraced about the whole thing, and were both blushing.
Tsuzuki seemed to miss this whole little interruption and continued where he left off. "But how can you not want to get married. Sure you've been together a long time, but why not make it official. Besides weddings are sooo much fun! There's cake, and dancing, and food, and presents, and flowers, and decorations, and lots of people, and music, and…"
"Alright Tsuzuki, I think we got it." Watari interrupted.
"Oh right." Tsuzuki said with a slight blush.
Kuri looked thoughtful for a moment. "Tsuzuki I'll make a deal with you." She said.
"What kind of deal?" Tsuzuki replied.
"I'll marry Ryu when you and Hisoka get married." She said with a smile.
It seemed impossible, but Hisoka turned a darker shade of red, that no one had ever seen.
"Kuri!" Ryu said, a little shocked as well. Kuri only smiled.
"How bought it Tsuzuki? Do we have a deal?" she said, extending her arm.
Tsuzuki looked thoughtful for a moment before smiling and taking her hand. "Deal!" he said.
"What!?" Hisoka yelled, but Tsuzuki ignored him.
"When Hisoka and I get married you and Ryu will." Tsuzuki said. "You better not back out on it."
"I won't. I promise!" Kuri said. "But… I'm sorry to say that we have to be leaving soon. Right Ryu?" Ryu nodded in response. (The guy doesn't talk that much does he…)
"Kuri! You can't leave yet. We haven't gotten to do anything fun." Tsuzuki said.
"I didn't come here to have fun, even if I would love to stay, I can't. We've been away from work for a while now. As much as many of the guys owe me a few favors, I think if I stay too much longer we might be pushing it." she replied.
"Then if you are going to leave. I want to make a deal with you." Tsuzuki said.
"What kind of deal?" Kuri replied.
"That if you ever need me to call. I can never repay you for all that you've done." Tsuzuki said.
"Same goes for me." Watari chimed in.
"Me as well." Tatsumi said.
"Me too." was the response from Hisoka, even though his reply wasn't as enthusiastic as the others.
"Aww thanks. But are you positive about this." She said, almost as if she wasn't sure whether or not to believe them.
"Yes of course! If you need us for anything just call." Tsuzuki said.
Kuri smiled to herself.
"Same goes for us." Everyone seemed rather shocked that it was Ryu who said this and not Kuri.
"Ryu…awwww… I knew you cared." Kuri said giving him a huge. Ryu could only blush and try not to look at Watari who was giving him a knowing look. All of a sudden Kuri stopped and turned around.
"By the way… How far did you two go?" Kuri said.
There was a choking noise, as Tatsumi choked on the coffee he was drinking. Tsuzuki and Hisoka stood in shock.
There was a moment of awkward silence…
"Well… Are you going to say something or do I have to read your minds."
"Kuri!" Ryu yelled.
"Ummm… I don't think you need to know that Kuri." Tsuzuki said.
"You don't need to know that, and I'm not saying." Hisoka said.
"It's alright. I already know. Watari outside." she said leaving the room, with Watari following.
"What was that all about?" Hisoka asked.
"You don't want to know." was Tatsumi's reply.
"Watari should have listened to me." Ryu said, shaking his head.
"About what?" Tsuzuki asked.
"About taking bets with Kuri. She's always right. I can't tell you how many guys have lost money to her. It's rather good at casinos actually." Ryu replied.
Hisoka and Tsuzuki stood there completely confused as Watari and Kuri came back in. Watari was crying it seemed and Kuri was smiling victoriously.
"Now that that's taken care of. We better be going." Kuri said.
"We're going to miss you." Watari said giving Kuri a hug. He's a good-sport about losing the bet.
"Same here." she said. "See ya Tatsumi." she said giving Tatsumi a hug.
"We appreciate you coming." Tatsumi said.
"Tsuzuki, Hisoka I'm glad I was able to help. Give a me a call sometime." She said giving them both a hug.
"Same goes for us. And don't forget if you need us give us a call." Tsuzuki said with a smile.
"I won't forget. I'll be seeing you soon." she said as she started to leave.
Ryu was saying good-bye as well. And after the last of the farewells Kuri and Ryu teleported out.
"What a strange couple." Watari said.
"I doubt this'll be the last we see of them." Tatsumi said. "I know this won't be the last…"
-Ryu and Kuri's home-
"Ahhh… It's good to be home." Kuri said lying down on the bed.
"Kuri. What's going on?" Ryu asked, sitting down next to her.
"What do you mean?" she said, sitting up.
"You were insistent on knowing if they would come to help us. And you said we'd be seeing them soon. What is it Kuri? What did you see?" he asked.
Kuri shook her head. "It's nothing that can't be helped."
"Kuri… please tell me."
"I can't, but don't worry about it. Things always turn out for the better in the end. Now I'm going to shower. You coming?" she said getting up and heading into the bathroom.
'But the way things turn out is what I'm worried about…' Ryu thought as he went into the bathroom after Kuri.
"We know some strange people Asato." Hisoka said as he sat down on the couch.
"I know, but that's what makes life around here interesting." Tsuzuki replied, sitting next to Hisoka.
"Asato were you serious?" Hisoka asked, a little nervous.
"About what?" Tsuzuki asked confused.
"About marrying me…" Hisoka whispered.
"What did you say? I couldn't hear it Hisoka."
"About marrying me." he replied a little louder, and then looked down, afraid to see Tsuzuki's face.
Tsuzuki smiled and pulled Hisoka into an embrace.
"Of course I am. I love you Hisoka and I plan on spending the rest of my life with you. We'll go slow alright? We won't rush this, but in the future yes… I would love to marry you." Tsuzuki said.
Hisoka clung to Tsuzuki and stared to cry. Tsuzuki was confused.
"I'm sorry if I did something wrong Hisoka."
"Baka… You didn't do anything wrong. It's just…" Hisoka mumbled into Tsuzuki's shirt, but Tsuzuki understood.
After everything that had happened, some things were just understood. As Tsuzuki and Hisoka sat there in an embrace, they knew that things wouldn't be easy, life never was for them. But that was alright. They have each other, and that would be enough. But where do things go from here…
