They started running, I tried my best not to fall asleep. We made it to the graveyard. Hikaru sat me down on the ground.
"You ok, Kaoru?" Hikaru asked.
"Yes." I reply. We heard a laugh. That can be only one thing, or three technically. "Oh no, they're relentless."
"They are not going to get anyone as long as I'm around. Haruhi, hide with Ageha, protect her. I'll protect Kaoru." Hikaru said.
"Ok." She grabbed Ageha's hand and led her away. They hid inside a tree that still had yet to turn it's leaves. It was full of leaves and you couldn't see them. The witches came.
"Sarah, you know what to do." Winifred said.
"Right, Sister Winifred." She cleared her throat. I know what's coming. I thought of a plan.
She starts singing.
"Come little children, I'll take thee away. Into a land of enchantment. Come little children. The time's come to play, here in my garden of Magic." Sarah sings. I cover my ears, but I can still somewhat hear her. "Come little children, I'll take thee away. Into a land of enchantment." Out of the corner of my eye, Kaoru gets up. "Come little children, the time's come to play, here in my garden of Magic." He starts moving toward her.
"No, Kaoru!" I grab his hand and he stops.
"Can't you see your brother doesn't want to stay?" The Head-Witch says.
"He prefers us." Sarah says.
"No, you bewitched him. Kaoru, snap out of it." I say desperately. I turn him to look at me. His eyes have no emotion. Almost as if, he's staring off into space. "Kaoru." I shook his shoulders. "Kaoru, please." Why won't he snap out of it? Then, he. He stepped away and went toward the witches. I tried to grab for him but I'm too late. "Kaoru!" The witch grabbed him by the waist and lifted him off the ground. She pulled out the vial and was about to make him drink it, when he tried hitting it out of her hand. He wasn't under their spell. The vial started to fall and I caught it.
"Give me that vial." The head witch ordered. I still don't know her name. I really don't want to.
"Sorry, but no." I say. I step back from her.
"Give it to me or I let go of your precious brother." If I give her the vial, Kaoru dies, if I don't give it to her, Kaoru dies. What am I going to do? I quickly look to see the other two witches grabbed Haruhi and Ageha. "Give me the vial! Or all that you love is gone." I look at the vial. If I smash it, then they might get seriously hurt. I give her the vial, Kaoru will die and so will countless others. He means everything to me. I will not regret this next move. I open the vial and drink down the potion. I try not to gag.
"That was disgusting." I drop it. The witches set Haruhi and Ageha down gently.
"That was the worst mistake you could have done."
"I don't care." She drops Kaoru, but he grabbed the end of her broom to keep himself up. He was holding on tightly, the witch started trying to pry his fingers off. "Hold on tight, Kaoru, don't let go!"
"I'm trying not to." She started kicking him. Oh if only I had a broom. Or if I was able to get to her. She'd be so dead right now. Nobody hurts my little brother.
"Get off my broom!" She ordered. Please stay strong, Kaoru.
"No." He said back. I try running underneath the broom.
"Kaoru, let go, I'll catch you."
"No. If I do, she could get you and I'd lose you. I'm not letting that happen!" She starts making the broom spin and he slides off and goes flying into a tree.
"Kaoru!" I start running to him, but something catches the back of my shirt. I can tell it's the head witch. "You don't know what mistake you just made." I kicked into older brother mode. I spin around and stomp on the end of her broom and she fell off. She was now on the ground. I knew that hollow ground thing didn't make sense. I'm ready to fight. Nobody hurts my little brother. I get into a fighting stance, even though I'm getting weaker. I need to hold her off until the sun rises and she disappears for good. Haruhi and Ageha are holding off the other two witches from what I can tell. "Don't you know not to mess with someone's little brother." I then tried to punch her, but she grabbed my arm.
"You are so pathetic little boy." Then, someone came and hit her away. I turned and saw it was Honey-Senpai.
"Hika-chan, are you ok?" He asks.
"Yes." I reply.
"Good, go get Kao-chan."
"Right." I ran over to Kaoru.
"H-Hika." Kao says. Sounds like he got the wind knocked out of his lungs.
"Shh, everything's going to be ok." I check to make sure he has no broken bones. It doesn't appear so. Once I'm sure nothing's broken, I pick him up.
"I hate it when all the air get's knocked out of your lungs." He says, confirming my suspicions.
"I hate it too. Come on. It's almost sunrise." Just as I said that, I saw a small glimmer of light. I turn around, just in time to see two of the witches explode. Then the head-witch, Winifred, I think her name is, turns to stone. Honey-senpai runs away just as she explodes as well. "They're gone." I'm so relieved it's over. "Just go to sleep, ok? Everything will be ok in the morning." I said.
"Um, Hikaru?" Kaoru asked.
"It is morning."
"You know what I meant, silly." Kaoru smiled. He's so adorable. Ageha ran over to us.
"Is it finally over Big Brother Hika?" She asks.
"Yea. It should be over. Let's go back t-" I was cut off by the sound of Tamaki-Senpai's voice.
"Haruhi!" Tamaki runs up and starts hugging and spinning Haruhi around.
"Tamaki-senpai, let me go!" Haruhi shouts. The scene is pretty comical. It usually is.
"I was so worried when none of you were in your hotel room. Kyoya was able to locate you. Please don't scare Daddy like that again, Haruhi!" Tamaki says, still spinning her around.
"Ok, I won't, now let me go!" Tamaki is extremely insane.
"Why do you have a glove on your left hand Hika-chan?" I look to Honey-senpai. I forgot I was wearing it.
"Um, I like to wear fingerless gloves when I sleep." I say. I bet Kaoru won't buy that. He knows that I never sleep with gloves on.
"But, you're not sleeping?" Honey-senpai points out.
"I forgot to take them off my hand because I was in panic."
"Oh, ok." That seemed to persuade him, but Kaoru doesn't seem like he believes it.
"Hikaru, really?" Kaoru asks.
"Can you set me down? I think I can stand."
"Ok." I set Kaoru down and he is able to stand. He grabs my left hand and pulls the glove off.
"Hikaru, what's this on your hand?" He asks.
"Don't worry about it, let's go back to the Hotel." I said.
"Ok, then you can tell me there." Kaoru says. Why does he want to know so badly?
"Sure." I look around the others. Since when did they leave? "Um…" I trail off.
"I have no idea." Kaoru says.
"Neither do I. Come on Ageha."
"Want one of us to carry you? You seem tired." I ask. She shook her head, but she couldn't keep her eyes open. "Come on, bug." I crouch down so she can get on my back. She gets on my back and I stand up. She has her arms around my neck. The three of us walk to the hotel, where our friends are. "Thanks for abandoning us back there."
"Sorry, we thought you were following." Tamaki says.
"Sure you were. Anyway, I better clean up our hotel room while Kaoru and Ageha rest." I say.
"Ok." Tamaki says.
"I'm not tired. I can help." Kaoru says. He's tired, I can hear it in his voice.
"No chance, my little brother. You've been through a lot tonight."
"So have you." Kaoru points out.
"I want to stay up and help too." Ageha says.
"You can hardly keep your eyes open. Same with you, Kaoru. You guys need your sleep." We walked into the hotel and went up to our floor. We make it to our room. "Ageha, let's get you in bed."
"Why?" She asks.
"Because you're tired."
"I'm not tired." She says, tiredly. I laugh a little bit.
"Yes you are." I pick her up and carry her to her bed. I, then, cover her up and she falls asleep. "Kaoru, you get some sleep too." I tell him.
"I don't need to sleep. You've had much less sleep than me." Kaoru spoke the truth. I haven't gotten as much sleep.
"I'm not the one who got flung into a tree." I get him to lay down. As soon as his head hit the pillow, he fell asleep. I sit next to the bed. I love my little siblings so much. So many things could have gone wrong tonight. I could have lost the two most important people in my life. I don't know what I'd do if I did. I'd live on of course, but I doubt I would ever be happy again. I'm glad for the way things went. I hear the door open. Haruhi runs in, quickly spins around, shuts the door and locks it, trying to catch her breath.
"I finally got away from him." Haruhi said, she was panting so much, I'm surprised she could even speak.
"He can be overzealous sometimes. Shows how much he cares for you. He seems to care about all of us, but seems the most attached to you."
"Yea. I don't get it." She says.
"Me either." There's a slight silence. Haruhi comes over to me, I'm sitting on the ground next to Kaoru.
"So how's Kaoru?" Haruhi asks.
"He seems to be doing ok, despite the fall. He doesn't seem hurt." I explain.
"That's a relief, I was concerned because that was not a short height. Especially being thrown like he was.
"Yea, he's lucky he didn't break anything. I'm glad he's able to sleep."
"You better get some sleep too. I can clean things up."
"You're not doing it by yourself. I'll help." I stood up. The two of us started to clean the Hotel room. "I have a question."
"Whatever happened to the book?" Haruhi paused for a moment.
"I have no idea."
"I think we might have left it at the Witch Museum."
"I hope so. It'd be hard to find it if we left it in the graveyard."
"Yea." Everything seems like it'll be ok. The witches are gone. None of us are hurt. We'll be returning back to Japan tomorrow.
I am finally done with this story. I hope you guys who actually read this enjoyed it. This is finally the end. No more chapters. If you have any questions, let me know through a PM or through a review. I will be making an Ordon Anastasia story. It will have Hikaru and Kaoru as the main characters. It's hard not to have them as your favorite.
See ya soon,
