"Ahhh, I feel better now that we've gotten all of that out of the way." Jin sighed, hugging Yun's arm as they walked towards home.
Sora was next to Nabi, the two munching on donuts together as Sae Ha strolled behind them to smoke. "I bet Oppa will love these decorations. Nabi is so good at finding cute things!" The human beamed, holding up the bag of paper plates with bunnies, flowers, and bees all over them and cups in various shades of pink.
The girl Chachaoong beamed and giggled at the praise, Mano messing with his fidget spinner he'd insisted MuYoung buy for him '(You get it and I shut up or you don't and I relentlessly annoy you for it'). He actually seemed enamored by the spinning device, eyes focused on it and Henry steering him around obstacles. "It looks like the shop is done with the cake for Rabbit. I'll h
MuYoung's snarl echoed as he stared at Ignatio in horrified rage, Cho-Yi lunging for his mate. "Ah ah ah~ I'm playing right now." The redheaded deceiver warned, wagging a finger and sending the TAL backwards as if he'd been hit. "It really was pathetic, how easily you all fell for the 'lost kid' schtick." He stretched, snapping his fingers and grinning as Ignatio cried out in pain, more blood squeezing out as the knives sunk deeper.
"Stop it!" Noah screeched, lunging for the kid. "Who the FUCK are you anyway?!"
He was repelled in the same way as his caretaker, Jin and Nabi braced together to catch him as the kid tossed his knife like a toy and caught it. "Hmm? Me? Hue hue, I would give you my name but then that might give you an advantage. And God knows you already have too many of those." He placed th
"Oh man...I hate hangovers, how does Joong survive this?" ChoYi complained, clinging to Ho.
Gotoya snorted, his master on his back sound asleep. "Unlike you, he never learned to STOP drinking." The beast uttered, MuYoung stifling his snort as he held Maru around the shoulders, their son fast asleep and sucking his thumb. Shadow and Kitten dogged their heels, happy now that they were no longer being lavished.
"One should never overindulge, lest you become less attracted to the source." Lotte wisely stated, Henry leaning on him and almost falling asleep.
Hiljo had his arm looped with Yoong's, the once-blind carrying Jenna as Haje walked alongside the redheaded elder, almost nodding off as they made their way to the hotel. GamunBe had both girls in his arms, and kept turning around to look towards the beaches. "I'm sure
"It feels like it's nearby?"
Jin and Yun were facing each other, for once in another location: school.
The TALs whom lived with the Kings were on the roof with Jin and Yun, the others at work or with Yoong. "It's hiding itself well but when the Infection surfaces, for a brief moment that shield drops." The redheaded elder replied to Jin's statement. "If you can get into that tiny window, I can use that link through you to track it."
"Not to mention we have Monkey, DukDali, HalMi, and now we have Joong back." Hiljo remarked.
Yun's frown deepened as he and Jin drummed their fingers on their knees in sync. "But with the Resistors attacking any Infected we don't round up before they arrive, it'll be hard to concentrate on that opportunity while also protecting the Infected."
"Not to mention Logan's group..." SaeHa raised,
The plan was set into motion a few days later, March 14th.
Noah and Ignatio had just barely finished their surprise gifts, Teora Hao and his fellows now more at ease around the doctors thanks to the time spent in each other's company. Lun had started to find a kinship with Sae Ha's dry humor, and Jun and Mano were getting along with their...ahem, more 'violent' humor tone. Mu Young had been guarding them this time, Ignatio at work for the time being, and had been fidgeting quite a bit and trying to hurry the group along.
Seemed they weren't the only ones with surprises, as Kang Im pointed out a little hidden panel of the gunman's pocket to Noah.
But as the group was returning to Yu Jin's house, they were stopped by a very heavy pressure s
Gasun felt himself sweating, trying to control his shock and mask it from both Seo Jun and Logan. 'Think think think think-' The TAL was panicking now, his fight to control his expression a lost cause.
Seo Jun's quiet whimper made Gasun freeze in his seat. Sitting across from him wasn't the wild violent sadist who'd strung Ara up by her ankle and turned Ho's arm into a knife block. It was a very scared looking child whose eyes were begging Gasun. "...I have to." His voice came out in a voice so low and hoarse it could've gone undetected even by Maru, Gasun not daring to speak any louder.
"Please don't." JuJu begged again. "It's better now that you're here. Please."
Damn his emotions!
"Please don't leave us here with him." Seo Jun rasped, nearly in tears.
Gasun bit his lip.
Noah's ears fell, much to the amusement of ChoYi. "I was hoping Shade would be LESS of a distraction to you, not MORE of one." He said as the old man wrapped Ho's hand with gauze, the Yongma master having burned himself with oil as Shade had popped up and clung to his legs.
"There there. You rest your hand, you did enough chopping today." The human owner soothed, patting Ho's knee. "Sit over by the window so that bug can attract customers. I'll make you some dumplings later okay?" He looked to Noah, ChoYi sweeping up the plate shards as Ho whimpered. "Actually...Would this be too much for you to heal?" The old man pointed at Ho's hand, and the Rabbit TAL cracked his knuckles.
The door jingling as it opened was drowned out by the musical popping of Noah's bubbles around Ho's hand, and as the last of the burn
"According to the travel guidebook, Japan has over six thousand islands around the main four that its cites are located on, and of those six thousand over four hundred and thirty are inhabited by human populations."
MuYoung squinted at Lotte. "Did you seriously bring a book on a mission?"
"Oh y'know I just thought it'd be a good idea to KNOW WHAT WE'RE WALKING INTO AN OBVIOUS DEATHTRAP!" Lotte held the book over his head as if he were going to throw it at MuYoung. In the Miyagi prefecture of the island of Honshu, the Kings and their Court stood at the gates of the island's attraction, Mano looking like Death itself but angrier as Yangban, Yun, Mir, the Laons plus Chau Yong, ChoYi, and the orange-eyed Ignatio stood around him.
The others were clustered around GamunBe and Noah, Jin worriedly looking at Yun as Na
"And WHY are you dragging me around?"
Lotte's scowling was ruined by his blush, as Jin and Noah dragged him closer to Nabi, whom was waiting patiently at the bus stop. "WE are going to solve the Henry problem you have." Jin cheerfully replied.
"There IS no problem, he just bothers me LIKE YOU ARE DOING NOW-" Lotte began to snarl.
Noah waved his hand to cut Lotte off. "Now, now, we all know a first crush is difficult to deal with on your own. So Nu-Nabi-Nim, Jin, and I are going to be helping you bag yo man~" The Rabbit brightly giggled, though the way his ears were curved, he looked more devilish than anything.
"You all have lost your minds-" Lotte finally registered Nabi being there. "And Nuna why are you even agreeing to this?!"
Her eye were shiny with determination. "It needs to happen." She replied with a level o
